But yeah, it's just goes to show how much quality Blizzard puts in their games when their Alphas are better qualities than most full releases.
That and the big chunk of quality cred for killing Starcraft:  Ghost when it couldn't measure up.

Nova actually has a quote in HotS that picks on that happening.

"No I'm not Kerrigan.  If I had my own game, you'd know that already."

US military looking for proposals for a "wall-in-a-can" to be used in the field.

For those outside the US, Heroes of the Storm is going international soon.  On the downside, that means I have an even smaller mathematical chance of getting into the Alpha.  Sad

I'm somehow mystified that HotS hasn't actually launched yet.
...has it?

Nope, still in Alpha.  A very pretty, very well put together Alpha, but still an Alpha.  That I want to get into, but can't.

Ah, understood. T'was the presence of fairly in-depth wiki that threw me off. I had thought you were endeavoring to get into the alpha of the international release....as though that would be different somehow.

Ha, nono.  They've been trickling out invites for a while now.  Since these invites were limited to North America, I've been in the "running" for one longer.  Now that they will now be inviting globally, they will probably be more spread out so they don't tax the servers too much.  I could be wrong, though.  Hopefully.

But yeah, it's just goes to show how much quality Blizzard puts in their games when their Alphas are better qualities than most full releases.

Hey, y'know who would be perfect to play as Robin next to Ben Affleck's Batman?  Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)!

I haven't looked at the others yet - doing LoL conversions looks like it could take roughly until the end of time Smiley. That cast is HUGE.

Oh, I can see why you went to LoL for character inspiration.  Of the different MOBAs I know about, it definitely is the most colorful.  The others are either rather generic, or take direct inspiration from other sources (classic mythology for Smite, the Blizzard universe for HotS).

Sorry to hear it had some presentation issues. I haven't decided to actually play it - just looking at the characters so far (seeing if there's any I like so much I have to go to the trouble of downloading the game to see in action).

Just a word to the wise: MOBA communities are rather... infamous.  To the point where selling points for new ones explicitly state that they have a "new way to deal with player toxicity".  HotS, for instance, gets rid of personal leveling altogether (all XP is shared) in order to eliminate the need for "last hits".

Ok, I can see why Ahri's abilities were renamed at some point - her original story and skill names were dark.

Yup.  This is why it's a mistake to think all Asian mythology is the same.  The difference between a kitsune and a gumiho can be rather... deadly, if you aren't careful.

Anyways, now that I think about it, Ezreal and Lux might be interesting to look at.  And Garen, everyone's favorite Demacian cheerleader (Demaaaaaaaaciaaaaaaaaaaa!).

Ah, dear sweet Ahri...  That's about the extent of my input about that game, sorry.  Tongue

Have you looked at the other MOBAs as well?  DOTA, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, etc.?

was he kidnapping people with weather balloons?

It's a carry over mechanic from Peace Walker.  It's based off a real life system that uses balloons hooked to a belt that are then grabbed by an overhead cargo plane.  It's the same one used by Batman in The Dark Knight.  Naturally, they embellished a little with the MG version, since the balloon doesn't lift you off the ground like that.

Metal Gear 5: TPP gameplay (~40:23)

Includes the most advanced cardboard box mechanics ever seen in a video game.  I am being completely serious, this cardboard box is ridiculous in what you can do with it.

You had to mention that, didn't you?  My poor, poor wallet. Tongue

By the way, Falling Skies: the Game is basically cheap knock-off XCOM.

And speaking of XCOM, Xenonauts is now on full on release code!  Yeah, I didn't notice either.  Definitely not getting the usual hullaballoo that you'd expect.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing.  It could be a cool expansion, to give a little flavor.

Which one, the hullaballoo or the cheap knock-off?
