When I'm away from my home desktop, I play Overwatch on my MacBook Air or my XPS 13. I have to drop everything to minimum and lower the render scale, but it does run at a playable framerate.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a handsome remaster, but it's no substitute for a sequelBulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is a handsome remaster, but it's no substitute for a sequel

Bollocks. The only reason most people want this is because the original licensing agreements are a quagmire and as a result, the original isn't likely to be updated to make it backwards compatible for consoles or strip out Games for Windows: Live from the PC version.

Nobody really cares for the stuff Gearbox are adding - they just want a working game again. That Pitchford shot down anything like a loyalty discount for existing PC owners using the existing licensing deal as an excuse basically sealed the deal in most eyes - £10 on sale at best.

Heck, it's not like 'but you won't get to play as Duke' is a deal-breaker these days...

And I'm a much bigger fan of Steve Blum, anyway...

The licensing and such makes sense to me—I get it and understand that it's fair even if disappointing to existing owners. But damn if Randy Pitchford doesn't consistently use the most inflammatory wording he possibly can. That alone is probably enough to turn off a good bit of his audience.Reply

The guy has a tragic lack of tact.

Haha, sick. I may have just spoiled a scene from MGS5 for myself, but it was worth it. You're tearing me apart, Lisa!

This is pretty darn neat. It speaks a lot to the caliber of community that this game has and makes me really curious and interested in checking it out.Reply

It's a great game if you give it the time it needs. You have to make your own fun, but get smuggling illicit goods and you'll soon be having a wicked time.

Glad they're clearing that up for me. I am thoroughly befuddled every time I open the Battle.net—err, Blizzard Client to launch my games.

Ha, then what the heck prompted them to jack up the annual price of PS Plus from $49 to $59? Aside from greed, I mean. 'Cause that's definitely not competitive with the $0/year price of multiplayer on PC. :vReply

In Europe you can still plug in an internet cable into your PS and play. PS plus is not required.

That robot's orbs have a hitbox the size of Texas. He does need to be tuned down a bit. And I'm happy to hear of possible improvements for Mei and Mercy; they both feel a bit weaker than they ought right now.

I'd like to see how it goes for now, too. What I'll really have a problem with is if these not-coin-unlockable event items end up dropping as dupes. If that "one guaranteed event item" ends up being just a handful of coins (which, as already stated, can't be used for the event items), THEN they'll be crapping in our hands.Reply
Ben Barrett Avatar

That is exactly what happens if you get a dupe, which we've discovered seems to be quite common.


I think I'd like to see a second currency that drops from the seasonal crates, but honestly I don't have a problem with the way it is now - I'm also not that bothered about cosmetics at the end of the day.
