League of Legends Championship Series raises the e-sports stakes

HMAN

@neuroniky I really enjoy watching LoL but then again i'm not really into SC 2. Multiple games can exist comfortably, but instead people seem to dislike a certain game just because they play what is deemed a competitor, it makes literally no sense

And then you just get the amazing fanboy comments from people like markcocjin

The Dota 2 Experience, Part One

HMAN

6 years ago

I've had Dota 2 installed on Steam for a long time now but can't bring myself to play it. I play a decent amount of LoL but i'm still barely above average on that after 400 games. I really like the art style of Dota 2 but can't bring myself to go through that horrible learning experience again, all the while being abused and told to get cancer for 1 mistake...

Star Wars: The Old Republic dev "looking at free-to-play"

HMAN

6 years ago

I maintain that SWTOR has the best levelling experience in any MMORPG. I had so much fun with the story but once you get to max level there just isn't a worthwhile reason to keep your sub open. Therefore I don't see how free to play could save it. If it is free people will just play through it as a single player game without paying and they won't stick around

League of Legends spectator mode gameplay

HMAN

6 years ago

@sherpa1984 As it should because its infinitely more accessible for a new player.
Dota 2 could make a start by at least having a proper tutorial (at least it didn't when I last played).
LoL is a great intro to MOBA's and perhaps a stepping stone to something more shall we say harcore, like Dota 2

The Walking Dead: Episode One Review

@wattsn26 Where did I say he was anything like Tyreese as a character? Also if he's not a (bad) replacement for Tyreese why isn't Tyreese in the show?

@Whizzo I see T-Dog as a very very very ill conceived replacement for Tyreese (who doesn't seem like hes going to appear anytime soon).
I like the show but the changes they made to many of the characters don't seem well thought out. Case in point whiny annoying Rick replacing bad ass Rick etc.

I really don't understand these games. In my opinion (not telling people what they can and can't play) quick time events are a scourge upon mankind and should never be used in any game ever until the end of time.

Five years of The Lord of the Rings Online video

HMAN

6 years ago

It really was a great game. I say was because it really lost its way during the Moria/SoM era and turned down a path I and many others (although I don't claim to speak for everyone) didn't like. Became very grindy.
The Rift back in the old level 50 days with my kinship remains one of my favourite gaming moments

If you never tried it though I urge you to check it out, it really does have a lot more soul than WoW and its associated clones.

@midnight_walker I know it's amazing that one of the most boring, one sided title fights in UFC history (GSPLOL)made it on to that list. Just like Cain laying that beat down on Lesnar is considered an upset when anyone with half a clue knew that Lesnar hated getting hit and would get mauled by anyone with any sort of TDD

Facebook IPO: $100bn self worth, and other interesting tidbits

HMAN

6 years ago

"For starters, the share prices Facebook is asking for (roughly $30/£19) would apparently make the company worth a piddly $100 billion (£63.22 billion) - which is even more than Eurogamer's worth!"

Underwriters always massively under price IPOs. Expect returns on the first day of trading to be mahooosive. You'd think Zuckerberg would care about so much money being left on the table but I guess if its going to make him a multi billionaire what is a few billion more?

It's not really a fix. The 50 only bracket has always been planned for just after launch, they were simply waiting for there to be enough level 50s to support 2 queues. I don't understand why all the nerd ragers on the forums didn't get that

@zhivik You can bring people you are grouped with into story phases. You can also have more than one of the same class in the phase but you have to check a box in preferences for that. Ofc only the person whose story it is can influence the conversation

@Shikasama Then don't play it, but also don't flood every comments thread with posts about how much you don't like it. If i'm not interested in a game I avoid articles about said game.

I've never know a game attract so many people to comments threads just to say they hate it.

Name a fighter that has actually used rubber guard to great effect in MMA? Thats why it isn't in. It works for Eddie Bravo because he's a weirdly formed individual who isn't particularly athletic /hates 10thPlanet
I agree that the TKO animations are awful and some what abrupt. Punches and kicks seem to have no weight behind them. I do like the submission system though and unlike UFC 2010 it is possible to submit the CPU.
