I prefer video games as a whole. It does not matter to me if the game is "indie" or "retail". What matters is that it looks interesting and entertains me.

Man, I loved Titanfall last year when it launched. I loved it so much I got to the highest prestige level in the game around that time but stopped playing, waiting for new content. I meant to come back to it but then I heard about the changes since I left including the auto assault rifle nerf and I lost interest. I loved the feel when piloting the mech and I really loved the Last Titan Standing game mode. All of like 30 people played that game mode regularly before I left, though.

I use my smartphone alot but I cannot justify the purchase of a new phone every time a new generation rolls out. I am perfectly fine staying one or two generations behind as nothing I use puts a strain on my phone such that it cannot run it. I currently use an LG G2, but I have no intentions of moving up to a G3. I think I can squeeze another two years out of this phone before the times demand I upgrade.

Everybody has different tastes in games. If I happen to like a game that many people dislike, then who cares? What matters is that I enjoy the game. I couldn't care less about what others think, and I'm not going to waste time swaying the personal opinions of others.

This is one of those games where I just laugh when something bad or dumb happens, like when I park my walker under a drop pod because I wasn't paying attention.

The game made it somewhat apparent that something bad was going to happen once you leave Harth (basically "hey man, don't go unless you're REALLY ready to go") so I stocked up on potions and mega potions before the encounter. The hardest part was dealing with the blight mechanic introduction in that small space while attempting to defend yourself. Given the small space, it is insanely difficult to fight off the blight without having to take serious damage from the monster in exchange. I ended up blowing through all my potions and most of mega potions because I couldn't deal enough damage in time to stave off the blight most of the time before it reached full infection, turning its blight AoEs into DoT fields as well. Didn't cart once, though.

I treated the encounter as a scene to set the monster up as an antagonist, a challenge to inspire the player to improve and eventually overcome.

I win most of my matches as a hunter and have been playing with random people almost all of the time. Most randos do a pretty good job of pinging when they see the monster and doing their job when you start ending up with a decent MMR. You might have to offer advice from time to time such as telling the trapper to follow you so you can cut off the monster as a support or telling Lazarus to not go for a revive when the monster is sitting on the corpse. When I lose, it's usually because of positioning errors or bad decisions.

That said, I have yet to play a game as hunter where every other person has no idea what they're doing. At least one other person on the team knows how to play their class.

At least it will probably get a Quick Look from Vinny/Alex I guess? Not sure who would review it though.

I play support a whole lot. I've started playing Cabot frequently during skirmish because of how often I see Wraiths. I usually hope that my teammates pick Val and Abe to hopefully keep the monster in a constant slow once we see it and bring it down pre-stage 3. Barring that, most of the random teammates usually hang out at the relay when the monster is stage 3 and put up some sort of last stand. As Cabot, I hang back at a distance and provide support when I can until the team inevitably wipes, and then attempt to run down the clock/get reinforcements by hanging way back and dust tagging the relay and shooting through it to stop the Wraith from hitting it. When the Wraith gets mad and charges me, I cloak and hide. Most get disinterested and go back to the power relay, especially if they're pressured by the clock. Then I go back, dust tag/shoot through relay from distance, rinse, repeat. It's a very tedious strategy and requires a hell of a lot of patience, but unless I have a very specific combination of hunters or really good players I stand a better chance of winning by timer scamming.

Gunlance. It is a gun AND a lance in one weapon!
