So you're using what's happening to Max to whine about the plight of the white man?

You're an exploitative idiot.

I may have misunderstood what his point was, but it sounded to me more like he was calling attention to the way certain groups are reacting to Mr. Temkin's current situation. And how the ones that immediately condemn him and assume he's guilty are potentially the same who went after Giant Bomb after the new hires. Sounded more like calling attention to a pattern of behaviour than being exploitative.

Leaving the vault the first time I played Fallout 3. It was also the first RPG I had played in like 8 years. Knowing that I could just go wander was captivating to me. I remember the first time I found Paradise Falls also was something that stood out to me. The amount of authored content that there is to find blew me away. the White House, Arlington cemetary, the Chinese spy installments, The cannibal town etc, etc, etc...

I've been interested in the MOBA type games, but haven't been able to get into them. Due to a spinal chord injury years ago I have limited use of my left hand which means i have to use a game pad for almost all action style games. I just started playing this a few days ago and am terrible, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can about the game, genre, strategies, builds, tactics, roles, etc... My biggest problem ATM is learning a build order, role and trying to not feed. I mostly just play practice, but have tried a few regular conquest games, but like I said I am not good..

Seems like a very well made game, I wish there was a bigger following here, been going back and forth between Neith and Anhur, and am just now after about a dozen games or so turning off the auto purchase so I need to learn build and item order. I've had a couple games where I get 6-8 kills or so, which for me is great and feels fantastic then I will get murdered left and right, which is super frustrating. But something about this is getting it's hooks in me and is taking me away from Dark Souls 2 which I'm close to finishing.

Having an ADP of 9 and raising your shield, that's slow. Having an ADP of 20 and raising your shield, that's fast.

Is it really?

I think this may be misleading. 1. they are both naked except the shield, which isn't indicative of how most people actually play, I'd like to see animation comparisons at 50-70% equip burden. 2. it's things like the roll and dodge animations, as well as item usage that for me seem to be sped up and smoothed out considerably.

My adp started at maybe 9, I've since brought it to 20. Haven't noticed much difference with shield animations, but rolling multiple times and drinking estes does seem better. Also it may have something to do with stamina consumed and how fast you recover from being staggered, I'm not positive though.

The guy did ask specifically about shields so your second point shouldn't really be focused on this guy. Your first point seems odd because it can be assumed that a naked character would have the base stats therefore making it a better test for the speed of a shield raise.

You are right, but my point is that the video shouldn't be considered conclusive, because it's only showing one animation. I'd be curious what other animations looks like. Block, parry, backstep, roll, and especially when they are strung together. Rolling twice seems faster than it used to. Like I said I didn't notice much with the shield but the animations seem sped up and smoothed especially going from one to the next. Also I wonder how effective the ADP stat is with different equip burdens. Having played with the stat a little, it seems those are the kind of things that might be influenced.

I try to keep my equip burden below 70 which seems to be the fast roll. I wonder how many people are fat rolling and if ADP is making a difference or not for those types.
