@encephalon: I hate playing with sniper classes in games, but Ana is a lot of fun to play with. Her shots fire quickly, and you can heal your own teammates by shooting at them.

Widowmaker just doesn't bring much to the table. I would much rather use ana, who can fire off shots quicker, heal her own team, cause health/splash damage and put people ult-ing to sleep.

Finding the fourth boss really frustrating. To expect to be pixel perfect at dodging in that grid in his final phase, despite not having your dodging tested at all in prior phases, is a bit much. Good boss game design is when it trains a certain ability up in the early phases, then puts it to the ultimate test in the final phase. Its been a couple of times now where I have went through all of his phases having only taken a couple of hits, to then die on that dumb grid.

I am enjoying the game so far, but I think for a boss rush game it has to have better boss design.

Soo whenever I try to watch a giant bomb video on the website, after about 30 seconds, the fan becomes incredibly loud, and the base of my laptop is very hot. This only seems to happen with the gb video player. Anyone else having this problem? Anyway to fix it?

This problem has been going on for awhile but has become unbearable recently. I don't seem to have this problem with youtube videos or anything else I stream.

Ah, thats a bit of a bummer. Might be a bit tricky with there not being many big uk gaming companies.

I'm pretty happy with my current job, but when I get my fully chartered accountancy qualification, I would love to work in the gaming industry.

I've been doing a bit of digging, and I can't find anything that remotely related to finance jobs in the gaming industry. Its all coding/artist/pr stuff. How do you get a finance job in the gaming industry? And would it be hard to get one in the UK specifically?

Apparently Blatter will get voted in purely from the Asian, African and South American football associations. If he does actually win after these revelations, Europe will have to strongly consider its position in FIFA.

Crooked Rain is their best full listen, despite having their worst song ever on (Its Hit the Plane Down). Wowee Zowee is kind of a beautiful mess. The back end of Slanted isn't anywhere near as good as the front end. Brighten the Corners is a bit dull in parts. I never really got round to listening to Terror Twilight, but I always thought Major Leagues was one of their best songs.

Man, all this Pavement talk makes me want to get back into them again.

Fair play to Ashley for going public, but I found it all very doublespeak. He contradicted several of the club policies mentioned, particularly the winning a trophy part. I still don't trust the guy.
