Something which may or may not require getting hopes up: The X-Files Might be Coming Back to TV

Like I said, though, keep hopes in check.  It's just in early talks, and there are so many things that could go wrong along the way.

American Sniper shatters records for January, which may or may not be a high bar for some people.  Of course, it may be less the movie was that good, and more people paying respect to a true-to-life Real American Hero.

Sadly, "gun perfectly perpendicular to the viewer because I can't draw guns and perspective at the same time" is also a bit of an annoyance for me Wink.

Hey, drawing guns is hard, man, and so's perspective.

Farthest Star seems to have recently developed a rather different track on 'powered armor'...

I think that would be more in line with Mecha than powered armor.  Yes, even if you control it with your brain, if it's larger than the body you have, it's considered Mecha.

But that's getting way off topic.

So we have developed a homing bullet on 21st century Earth.  What say you?

I'm insanely bad at MOBAs, so I will probably skip HotS.  However, that other game they announced.  MOBA but FPS?  I got my eye on you.  lol.  *goes back to Divinty: Original Sin*  Good game. 

Ah yes, Overwatch, the Pixar TF2 superhuman setting with a Blizzard twist.  Looks fun.  Wink

Whoop, might have spoken too soon.  Blizzard's trademark application for Overwatch has been suspended thanks to a smartphone app submitted two months earlier.

Heroes of the Storm Closed Beta Walkthrough

Y'know, in case one of you guys get in.  Wink

Though don't give up on Heroes if you aren't good at other MOBAs.  Heroes is aimed to be much easier to get into.  You don't have to worry about last hitting, you don't have 100+ items that you need to constantly go back to base for, and map objectives are clearly defined (which helps when the announcers are constantly chewing the scenery as they remind you of the objectives).

Now if you will excuse me, because I bought that master skin now I have to get five more heroes unlocked instead of, like, one.  Tongue

One interesting thing about Heroes is just how much they try to inject a positive atmosphere into gameplay, with them practically shoving down your throat how much you need to rely on teamwork.  This is most obvious with how the characters themselves will say things depending on the situation.  They cheer when you get a kill, will praise healers, but most interestingly they will try to keep morale up if you are doing poorly.  A few times I've been on a kill screen with most of the team down, only for Raynor to say "C'mon, lets get back in there and win this thing!".  And other times when we were behind in levels, if we started to get momentum, a character would say something like "They're losing their momentum!  Keep fighting!" or "We're getting back into this!  Keep it up!"

By the way, quick tip:  G is your ping hotkey.
G+click is a general ping, but doing it on objects will give a context-sensitive message, with a corresponding line from your character (so you know who gave it).  For instance, if the Raynor player G-clicked an opposing hero, a message "Raynor wants to kill [hero]" will pop up, with Raynor saying "This hero's getting on my nerves".  If Tychus G-clicked a teammate, however, the message will be "Tychus wants to assist [hero]", with him asking "Anyone want to help out our amigo?"
G+Hold brings up a selectable ping wheel, which doesn't have dialogue, but does have its own unique sound so you can understand what the message is.  Up warns for danger, Down asks for assistance, Right signals you are on the way, and Left marks a spot that you want to defend (though G-clicking a friendly building says the same thing).

And most importantly, hitting V marks a Retreat command where your cursor is, so you don't even need to click.  Just point to who you want to fall back, hit V, and hope they get the message.

I've... had a lot of practice with the ping system.  I don't Skype, and I haven't used TeamSpeak in a while, so I'm pretty darn fluent in Game-Ping.  Not so much in French. Tongue

Congrats me, I just maxed my Heroes of the Storm level!  Can't say it was all glorious, but had a wiz bang ending!

Making great progress on the Heroes front.  Got my Master Raynor skin last night, though my PVP record is still pretty bad as him.  Tough re-looking at my stats, its not from a lack of trying.  Heck, one game was a slow grind down, yet I was out-doing the other team on hero damage.
