    After playing it for a few hours it suddenly hit me how incredibly faux-Warhammer 40k this game is. Probably explains why I really enjoyed it.

    Pretty sure there's already a thread about the movie you could check up on, but I'll just reiterate what I've already said. It's a movie that flounders around trying to be many different things and e...

    @mast: Yes, super competitive games like Counterstrike or Starcraft doesn't have much of a luck factor, which is why they are that competitive. Hearthstone however is more of a casual, "fun" game. It...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Win or Lose: I Never Feel Good. on the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft board

    @mast: You're basically talking about all multiplayer games though. There are very few big multiplayer games where luck doesn't factor in in some meaningful way. Sure, it's probably more of a factor ...

    Don't play constructed. That's not to say that luck isn't a huge factor in the arena too, but the game becomes much less about the same repetitive situations coming up over and over and you need to t...

    @neozeon: 2 of 62 comments that actually comments on the gameplay equals the community mocking them ? While I can see how my comment (one of the two) might be interpreted in a derogatory way, all I w...

    For some reason the first one that came to mind for me was the Soldier of Fortune shotgun. I don't really remember how effective it was, but it sure sounds like it packs a punch.

    @mctaters: You can only pause in singleplayer, and the game is really more focused around multiplayer.

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Unfinished: Offworld Trading Company 02/19/2015.

    Ye, Alex is doing the rookie mistake and playing the game like a traditional 4X. The whole point of the game is to trade resources constantly and use debt to your advantage. Once you start figuring th...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Why should length determine quality?. on the The Order: 1886 board

    It's not about quality, it's about customer satisfaction. It's much in the same way of how restaurants increase portion sizes to attract costumers. The size of the portion doesn't necessarily affect ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Are you getting this game?. on the The Order: 1886 board

    I checked out some of the leaked playthrough. I totally get what they're going for with it, but I just have no interest in these games trying to be movies anymore.

    I generally just find them boring, but I'd blame the games more than anything else. Found myself skipping a lot of QLs/unfinished lately because the games are not interesting at all.

    Come back with a real HD version (not just up-rez) for the Wii U and I'd be all over that shit.

    @sackmanjones: From my experience there seems to be a hidden hunger meter. It's sorta hard to prove, but there's a few things that's ticked me off. Firstly, I've never had a hunger event pop up any t...

    @d_w: The key is just to go for the consistent plays. Things like the vestal aoe heal, strong instant damage attacks and stuns on the weaker targets. From what I've seen of streamers etc people tend ...

    Molyneux has graduated from over-promising and under-delivering to over-promising and not delivering at all. Soon he'll be selling just the idea of a game existing.
