I am totally surprised to scooping RusVal on this, but there's a new Overwatch hero: Zarya!
She's a buffed-out Russian heavy weapons specialist who apparently swings between icy battlerage and a big-sister cooperative ethic while waving around a combined particle cannon (I think it looks more like plasma, but w/e) weapon/ light artillery piece/ shield generator.
Not terrifically original, and I continue to be in the camp that's expects that Blizzard will do more with Overwatch an IP then strictly an arena combat game.

Oh, and right.
Also McCree! *fail Val is fail*
A straight-up Spaghetti Western gunslinger focused on mid-range precision shooting and specific target elimination -given that he can inflict sudden, direct stuns with flashbang grenades.
Looks like he plays like Tracer with the brakes on.
His "High Noon" super (he marks targets, waits a few seconds, and kills them all with one shot each) looks goddamn OP, but we'll see how that shakes down as the game progresses.
Also I feel like his voice needs more gravel. Dude should be growly on a level that echoes Reaper if he's going to so directly imitate Clint Eastwood.

Also I kinda feel like they're ripping off one of my characters. Like literally, one character split into two pieces. Tongue
Oh well. Ain't like I've got a lawyer.
But yeah!
Overall I'm increasingly positive about this thing.

So, WoW is a) going to sell gold in game and b) also going to sell subscription tokens.

Kind of a big-deal change...?

Subscriptions will also still exist.

You're not the first and will not be the last to post a personal obituary Rus.

My deepest condolences.

Myself as well.
And I don't mind, this isn't a bad place to say goodbye.

... introducing a new heroine.
Michele Rodriguez can play a character who is awesome and who lives?

Isn't that a bad omen?
Last time was Battle: Los Angles.
...which I still liked. Tongue

  I find it slightly hilarious that as problem-solving, triumph-oriented gamers, pretty much everyone reading this would, as soon as they secured basic needs and security, start experimenting with the zombies.

....yeah well some of us have been single for a really, really goddamn long time. Tongue

Has everyone else been watching Agent Carter? It's amazing, go watch it.

+1+1+1

I read that and heard 3 "1-Up" effects. Grin

You never could get that scene in Sol Bianca out of your head, huh?

  I never tried to. Its a great scene Smiley. At most I tried to improve on the plausibility of it.

Shoot no less impressive for the fact that the captain was most likely drunk when she was doing it. Grin
I remember that series, too!

Seems a safe bet that at the point of Farthest Star the human eye is no longer anything special in terms of performance so for something like orbital sniping the human's mostly there for approving the shot.

News on the A-10's retirement debacle?

Well, if it's true it's interesting.

Especially the claims that Dick Cheney hated the F-14, or at least the obstacle to the adoption of the F-18 platform it represented.

And if this news has any effect, then it'll prove that the A-10 can withstand politics and keep on flying, therefore officially making it the toughest aircraft in history.  Wink

Conversation to share (heavily abridged) as food for thread:

V: China's apparently doing it right, but they've had their leap-into-the-1st-World economic spurt, and everyone only gets one -see post-war Japan, Germany, maybe Russia.
J: China could have a second.
V: Wut.
J: They've got a half-billion people they could mobilize into the middle class.
V: And sell what they make to who? The global economy's still weak.
J: To themselves. If they pick up and keep that middle class they could be their own virtuous economic interest.
V: Ok, that could actually work if their centralized gov't keeps the course. They pay well, reap taxes, buy national goodies, drive their economy along, and repeat. The only real hazard is gov't incompetence.
J: Except that China's also the origin of some flourishing independent corporations.
V: So what about a Coup?
J: Wut.
V: Those corporate interests will eventually butt up against that government control when they decide they want to be "bigger then China" and without a democratic system to buy off they'll have to face doing it the loud, bloody way.
As it looks now they've got a good system for getting and staying internally financially cohesive. If China can manage to be energy-independent enough to stay the fuck out of the Middle East (or Near West, perhaps) then they're golden.

And that's the fat being offered for chewing.
If China doesn't screw up and get dragged into foreign energy wars does conflict inevitably spring up between public moderation of financial interests and some folks who want to put "The New Qin Corp" in China.
