    One Quick Observation about Gamergate

    I wanted to put this out in the open, but in a controlled environment, because there isn't much space to do that when it involves GG.I've read a lot of articles about GG supporters, and almost everyon...

    EVE also has an interesting death mechanic. Though you are always brought back as a clone, if you don't make sure your clone is updated, you can end up losing progress. So, if you don't update your cl...

    @resonantpictures: Honestly, I don't think there's anything really wrong with the mechanics. I have noticed some lag with kills and such, and maybe that's the problem, but it's not the weapon balance...

    @honkalot: Yeah, crucible bounties can be awful and they tend to lead to me losing the match. I don't use fusion rifles, so trying to go on a spree with them just leads to my death 90% of the time. I...

    In my heart of hearts, I want Bully 2, but I think it'll be Red Dead (given the success of the last one). I didn't think LA Noire did very well, but I was way wrong. In 2011 the devs said they could ...

    Does anyone know what Kona actually is? The section on gameplay is really thin. I'm mostly interested in the kind of survival mechanics that they're including.

    @jazz: Thanks! It's just really difficult to get any sort of unbiased view of the games from most people who play them, and your answer is fair. I think I only recently learned that, despite there be...

  • dusker posted a message in the forum topic Learning by Comparison: Lol vs Dota 2: The Finale. on the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena board

    @jazz: One of the largest arguments I've seen for DOTA over League (besides maybe the F2P models) is that DOTA has been around longer, and thus is much more balanced (which might, I guess, make it fe...
