    Zarya. I've had some incredible runs with her on defense. Just hang out near the control point and let the bubbles fly...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Overwatch "Recall" Animated Short. on the Overwatch board

    That part where they call out the names of their attacks is anime as hell, I love it.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Do you guys have a consistent gaming group?. on the General Discussion board

    Not a single person in my social group plays video games. :(

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Assassin's Creed Movie Trailer Debuts; Everyone Else Tells Me It's Bad?. on the Assassin's Creed board

    I'm torn. The core premise of AC has always had potential, that the games have gradually squandered. Nothing says a film couldn't do better, but the history of video game adaptations is littered with ...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Blood and Wine is set to release May 31.. on the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt board

    Weeee! I just wrapped up Hearts of Stone, so I'm excited for another excuse to play more Witcher 3.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Fighting Final Fantasy VII - Parts 1-33: OH GOD! What Have I Gotten Myself Into?. on the Final Fantasy VII board

    Really looking forward to this blog series.I first played FFVII in 2006, so I had some of the same mechanical frustrations you are experiencing. But I must say the story pulled me through it in the en...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Who Are You Liking?. on the Overwatch board

    Been playing a lot of Roadhog. Playing on PS4 my aim is pretty lousy, so I like a hero that doesn't require my marksmanship to be on point. I've also been getting down pretty regularly with Lucio.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Captain America: Civil War Discussion (Spoilers). on the Off-Topic board

    I really enjoyed Civil War. Like the Avengers films, I think Civil War is overburdened by trying to do too much, but what you get in return - AIRPORT SCENE - is worth the trade-off, no question.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic What's everyone's general feeling about the beta?. on the Overwatch board

    I'm liking it overall. I'm not really skilled with shooters, though, and the sinking feeling of inadequacy when I have a bad match reminds me why I stick to campaigns. I probably won't pick it up at r...

  • Encephalon posted a message on the post The Second Half of That Hitman DLC.

    This is a great feature, guys, but I couldn't stand this after I've played Sapienza myself so thoroughly. I realize that's at least part me, though. Watching other people play certain mechanics-intens...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Persona 5 to release 15th September 2016 in Japan (no US release date yet). on the Persona 5 board

    Excitement! Liking the new characters too - ninja girl, musketeer girl and hikikomori girl.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Who Are You Liking?. on the Overwatch board

    In going through all the big bruiser types, I found Zarya to be pretty neat once I figured out how she worked. Then I tried Winston and didn't really feel him too much. Next I guess I'll try Reinhart,...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic No Quicklook? Why not?. on the Battleborn board

    They said on the Bombcast that they'd Quick Look it later this week.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Dishonored returns in November. on the Dishonored 2 board

    Coooool. Dishonored was a real surprise for me, and Arkane addressed a lot of my criticisms of the original game with the excellent Daud DLC. Here's hoping they used that experience to make the sequel...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Infinite Warfare reveal trailer.. on the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare board

    That's pretty fucking future. I don't know if you can get any more future than space - unless this game spawns its own trilogy a la Modern Warfare, which I suspect is what they're shooting for every t...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Mass Effect Ride opens soon!!!!!!!!. on the Off-Topic board

    I always viewed this as an oddity. I never got the impression Mass Effect has name recognition outside of the core gamer audience. Seems like they'd be better served with Transformers or Fast & Fu...

  • Encephalon posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hitman: Episode 2: Sapienza.

    @pcorb: The hilarious part is that because Sausage Man and Deadbeat Brother wear the same category of outfit, the game acted as if they did the right thing.

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Owners of only *one* of the two main current gen consoles - would you buy the one you don't have?. on the General Discussion board

    Nah. I just have a ps4. The vast majority of games I play are multiplatform anyway, and I can't think of an exclusive coming down the pipe that would justify owning an xbox one too.

  • Encephalon posted a message on the post Quick Look: Hitman: Episode 2: Sapienza.

    This was funny as hell, but it was unfortunate that Brad and Dan never figured out the suspicion mechanic.If you guys jump back into Sapienza, @brad and @danryckert, just avoid the dudes with white do...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Hitman Episode 2 - When in Rome.... on the Hitman board

    @walkertr77: There is an alternate way of destroying the virus that is way faster, and at least two alternate routes to get into the lab without a keycard. Don't want to spoil any of them, but it'll b...
