Re: Overwatch?

5 skins definitely qualifies as the full experience! Take another $20, Blizzard! My game would not be complete without moss, two face reveals, a randomly blue outfit, and a randomly brown outfit! That's totally worth 50% of the base price!

Re: Overwatch?

the game is only 40 dollars, isnt it? the 60 dollars one came with skins and shit Yup, game is $40, not $60 In the Blizzard launcher, it showed USD 59.99 when I last checked. If you go to the Shop and click the big Overwatch [Buy Now] banner, it brings you to Overwatch: Origins Edition for $59.99. ...

Re: Overwatch?

I played the open beta, and it's definitely got that old-school shooter vibe. I like it. D'va was my go-to gal. The fighting game style of character roster is a good fit, as it is in MOBAs. Keeps designers and artists employed to continue making new characters, so that's cool. For a designer, there'...

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

You may not trust career journalism, but many do, as the Sandy Beaches guy lamented after his experiment. I'd say Maddox fact-checking and addressing the bullshit from so many big magazine labels is a step in the right direction.

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

All of the sites that guy lists are clickbait sites, so... yeah. Time Magazine, among others? Well, you could define all magazines as 'clickbait' in that they want to catch your attention and get you reading their content. As far as whether the various authors are being disingenuous, their argument...

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

I see, thanks for the synopsis. So at least one person did make a fuss over it.

The above video summarizes many of my thoughts on this kind of matter.

Re: Tracer Joins the Nexus in Heroes of the Storm

I heard about the Tracer pose removal, but I don't know the order of events. From what was said above, let's see if I have it right: Blizzard animation department makes a suggestive pose for Tracer, Blizzard removes this pose for some reason, then Blizzard itself makes an announcement on its removal...

Slang for someone from New Zealand, a flightless bird native to there, or a fruit. I'm going to need more context.

Re: Who do you play?

You're missing Carry, or sustained high-damage glass cannon type (who usually center on their autoattack rather than ability damage). Nuker makes me think of burst-style damage dealers who are vulnerable during their cooldowns, or an ability-focused mage. Poke, on the other hand, is extreme range at...

You're thinking about this all wrong. Useless? "Know your audience." What you have here is data on CC's demographic. Although the responses don't surprise me and parallel my own, I was still legitimately curious how others would answer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEmSMvdMH4M Speaking ...

So PQ was the only one working on the site? What are you going to do with it now? PQ and I were the only official team members. He did coding, I did whatever else.

I have never really been keen on sports, so I have no interest in fantasy sports unless it involves explosions, mutants, and a spiked ball. You may choose only one option in this poll. Whatever option is the most chosen will be a surprise. Poll runs till Thu Mar 10, 2016 11:29 am You may select up t...

Re: DOOM 4 !!!

The Game Maker's Toolkit video makes an excellent point about combat decisions being the linchpin of Doom's fun. Part of making those decisions is enemy readability -- being able to tell what you're up against and quickly planning how to deal with it. The Doom 4 video shows a very atmsopheric level,...

Re: The SEN (staredit network) site...

and attempts to redirect BW traffic elsewhere such as Hercanic's site universally failed because no true, cohesive modding community has existed for the game since 2003. Correction: Modcrafters was never officially released, as it was still under early development when PQ's free time was eaten up b...
