I can deal with timed exclusivity. There are always games to play on the PC. Seriously.

Divinity II was a mess at launch (especially on consoles) and is still a “janky” game, but even it had the same charm about it that Original Sin seems to have as well. It is great to see Larian really hit it out of the park with this one.

I love you Arthur, but I respectfully disagree.

The surrender feature in League encourages players to play at their bare minimum as soon as they are discouraged and watch the clock to initiate the surrender vote. Surrendering makes players hopeful about their next game rather than work to improve their chances in the current one.

Having the chance to surrender is also a stripping the joy of a fulfilling victory from the winning team. Yes, when you are losing it seems frustrating to see the other team farming the jungle instead of pushing when you believe you have no chance, but most of the time the extra farm really is needed as an extra layer of security when pushing. Despite how things feel on the losing end, there are so many ways to turn things around.

Either way, it is a contentious issue for sure. I played about 400 games of League before ever touching Dota 2, so it actually took me a while to shift from my pro-surrender stance.

The only LoMa game that might have a good argument for not having overbearing "snowball" mechanics could be Heroes of the Storm. That is largely because because it doesn’t have last hitting or denying mechanics. Unfortunately, that also makes it seem utterly pointless and slow, but of course the game just needs more time to develop and people need more time to wrap their heads around it as well.

League is absolutely a game that gets decided 10-15min into the match and can "suffer" from snowballing heroes.

Meh, looks like a RAGE clone.

Well… I think this logo makes more thematic sense because the “war” in Warcraft takes form most often in battles for land with the Orcs being sorts of “immigrants” to Azeroth and trying to find their place in the world. The unrefined orcish iron “fighting” with the refined human steel over logo real estate is satisfying in that sense.

The typeface chosen seems bland though :P

Fuck my life for knowing what I know about Warcraft lore.

What the president failed to mention was that they also happen to know 60% of their customers happen to be illiterate (intentionally or otherwise).

Not sure how anyone could miss those pawn shop style signs all over their stores/ads.

That sounds like the best Gamestop I will never accidentally visit in my life. I think most people’s experience is the opposite in which the employees are all over them trying to "help".

I am also a jerk who only goes into a game/electronics store knowing exactly what I want, so I wouldn’t be the typical customer.

Games are developed on PC. This was just a dev build “oops” where someone moved the mouse in front of the press and that turned into headlines and clicks.

I also am dying for Halo to return to the PC with this release, but one could also see The Master Chief Collection as a marquee title for the Xbox One this year. The best I can hope for would be a year-ish delayed PC release just so any potential consoles sales aren’t lost.

Also, this collection comes with a Halo 5 beta, which cannot be promised on the PC version. Just another little thing that makes a PC release weird.

Remember that time in that PG-13 rated movie when the orcs launched the heads of their decapitated prisoners into Minas Tirith?

Well, this game is the first rated M Middle Earth game, so brace yourself.

It is basically the conceit of the game. The hero comes back to life with ghost powers because of a ghost. What ghost? Celebrimbor. It is as much of a spoiler as saying where in the timeline the game takes place.

907p HD re-release.

Also, the gameplay of Bio1 and 2 don’t hold up very well these days. With the stories already known, the idea of re-releases doesn’t sound very appealing.

Just buy them for $5 on Steam.

My approach is simply “Never back a kickstarter”. It has been working out pretty well so far.

Never liked the weapons in the UT games. Quake 3 had the guns I was looking for, but UT had more variety over the life of the series. Can’t really say I’m looking forward to this project, but I am happy to see a new game like this coming anyway.
