I have now shaved my head in preparation for the new year.  It will be completely grown back by tomorrow.   Tongue

As it was still 2014 when I made that post, it is a mere technical fact that we could not post in the thread yet.  Therefore, not a jinx to say we could not see anything here yet.  As we are now in 2015, we will now be seeing things here.

So HotS versus has gotten easier, mostly since I swapped my main hero to the other Terran Marine.  That's right, turns out I'm better with a gatling gun than an assault rifle.  Whether its because there's a balance discrepancy between Raynor and Tychus, I'm just more unlucky as Raynor, or the playstyle just fits me better, my W-L ratio is much better as the other Heaven's Devil.

Not that it stopped me from helping pull off an epic comeback as Raynor.  Grin

So after all of my saying to buy Valkyria Chronicles, what do I do?  Buy Resident Evil 6.

1.) A game I already own for XBOX360.
2.) A game I've mostly played my fill of already.
3.) A game I probably won't be able to play properly on my current system.

And add to this, I chipped in extra for all the multiplayer DLC.  Multiplayer... which people are probably not playing.

But hey, what a seasonal deal I got for it!  And I can play as the L4D2 characters now!  Tongue

Doesn't help that it took a couple days for my brain to realize what I did.  First thing I thought when I got up today was "You idiot!  Why did you buy that?!"

Ah well.  Maybe I can play the heck out of FTL to take my mind off it.

Is there a trick to that link, or are you just supposed to follow to facebook?

Oh sorry, I should probably explain.  Breach & Clear is a planned tactics game, where you have a squad of special forces soldiers in various CQC/MOUT settings.  Gameplay is split up into rounds, where you plan out where the soldiers go, how they get there, what they do, what direction they face, etc.  After the planning, you then let the gameplay play itself out, and hope that your plan doesn't get your guys killed.

It started out as a tablet game, but Steam Greenlight allowed it to come to PC.  I happen to be one of the people who voted for it, in fact, and have just picked it up for about 5 bucks on Steam right now.  (Let's Play of it)

Deadline hasn't been announced too long ago, though, so that's just a preview page.  Here's hoping it actually releases.

So hey, was checking out Breach & Clear, a formally tablet tactical game about modern spec-ops scenarios, and saw that they are supposedly doing a zombie version.  I can see many players using it to plan out their room clearance tactics for Z-Corp.

People are not bots.  Specifically, people don't play as badly as bots do in Heroes of the Storm.  Going from owning the computer players, to getting you face bashed in by actual players... yeah, whiplash.

Which wouldn't be a problem, if there wasn't a 2,500,000 XP daily cap on all non-versus games.  You do not want to know how long it took me to get to that level.  Tongue

Y'know what stinks?  There is supposedly an avatar for maxing out your level in the Alpha before the Beta starts.  I do not have much time to pull that off.  Tongue

HUZZAH!!  I presume you will tell us what you can.


Okay, was able to play a practice round before XMAS preparations interrupted.  Some things:

1.) My AMD A6 5400k dual core, Radeon HD 7540D Windows 8.1 Gateway can run it on tweaked Medium with hiccups.  Sound glitches are not uncommon, but otherwise I'm able to run it alright.

2.) When you first start up, you are given a prompt: how experienced at MOBAs are you?  Four options: Noob, Basic, Veteran, Hardcore.  Chose Veteran, got a truncated tutorial-ish practice battle.  You can opt to play out the "proper" tutorial from the options menu.  Which I did, and noticed that they've been tweaking the dialogue a bit, and has some glitches in cutscenes.

3.) I plan on purchasing Raynor, leveling him up to Master Skin, and just let the free rotation decide my other hero choices.

How pumped am I?  I accidentally activated my Firefall VIP token a few days ago, and have been trying to make the best out of it.  Participate in Wintertide, get involved in a few raids, drive a bike around a bit.  $%^ that, I'm playing Heroes now!

Lucky mortals, for the Wintertide season has forced me to put away my books, so you all will be safe from my ramblings for the rest of the year.

I, however, shall return!  For you can not stop... THE METAL!!!

Just a friendly reminder, be sure to check Steam on Christmas day.  Can't be sure they won't give a game away for free again this year.

Not a gadget, but properly trained Anti-Drone / Counter-Surveillance Kangaroos.

Nah, they do that naturally.
