It's great.

Didn't complete a game till my sixth attempt, with a touch of save scumming.

It doesn't lack strategy, it just requires a degree of aggressiveness not normally seen in Xcom, which traditionally has let you overwatch your way through the game. Timers, enemy healing and spawning enemies made all the difference.

Would've liked to have seen the second wave options in the game from launch though.

What seemed to be the lynchpin was how i directed my reseach. I went straight for magnetic weapons like a rocket this time, and having that extra damage output early on really helped me get some soldiers to rank up.

Why are gamers awful to each other? The psychology of online abuseWhy are gamers awful to each other? The psychology of online abuse
BLACK KNIGHT Avatar
Are people so thin skinned these days that there has to be studies initiated into why some people are dicks online?

And positing the word Noob as a gateway insult to further online abuse dear oh dear. Sounds like I'll be taking heroin next if start abusing folks online.

Videogames where people play AGAINST each other are exactly that; they are CONFLICT.

These people need to be studying the psychology of conflict if they want to get somewhere in these no doubt tax payer funded studies.

I'd even argue that there is plenty sportsmanship online and more often than not, you see the abuse spewed from dysfunctional team mates who accuse their team of not working as a team within the game when it is precisely them who not cooperating.

I actually miss the days of open chat and audio chat within games.

Destiny didnt even have chat in multiplayer at one point and doesnt have the proximity chat that previous Halo titles had.

Heroes of the Storm only has team chat and its impossible to congratulate (or deride) the enemy team on a well played battle or just discuss how the game went.

I half wonder if communication is being restricted because devs are too lazy to implement easy to use muting tools within games.

This game has possibly the worst menu system of any game ever made... it's even worse than Defiance's menu system... how do these GUIs end up in PC games??

Those mech armours are worth the discrepancy!

Planet nomads started development not long ago but the press doesn't seem to have noticed it yet, I'm excited for it though. I reckon it's probably going to be the next space engineers.

RotT was fantastic and had a great progression mechanic but Pineapple Smash Crew was lame, a disappointment in my books.

Me neither! I bought this last night along with Rodina and I'm really happy with it. Great atmosphere and music and gorgeous pixel art.

Keeping a look at Rodina, I hope it's our "No Man's Sky" when it comes out of Early Access.

She looked like Justin Bieber in Dragon Age II. This is clearly a massive improvement.

It's all very nice and well having a single player mode but this is literally the Sim City (2013) of RTS games with all the game play (yes, the single player gameplay) taking place on servers somewhere in America.


So far the servers are shoddier than Blizzards were during the Diablo 3 launch fiasco. Great if you live two blocks from Uber, not so great if you live in Europe.

There's an EU server. And a US and Australian servers as well.


That said, they've said they're going to be moving the GW to "personal" (as in offline) servers at a later date.
