So how are you doing?  I never really said anything but after reading your experience I kept thinking if this could happen to you this could happen to me.  I immediately started a diet, and I have lost almost 10 pounds since.  I just kept thinking I'm slowly killing myself and taking time away from my family.  Anyways, I hope you are doing well and getting the help  you need.

I have no idea why as I know it is technically an excellent game, but there's something about this one that just isn't drawing me in like other CODs did.

I was having the same observation in the beta, and I still bought the damn thing

So is a Blizzard flunkee more likely to counterfeit my passport or my driver's license? I'm debating which image to send to see if I can finally fix my authenticator situation. Yes I'm paranoid, it's just a question of which would contribute least to my paranoia.  paranoid icon_razz

Blackjack, seriously, you shouldn't have any issues with this.   I did it and never had a credit issue.  

Really what turned me off of D3 wasn't the auction house stuff or the loot; I just kept running into massive, seemingly random spikes in difficulty levels within a playthrough. Like I'd mow through most of a level and then a random spawn would mash me into the ground repeatedly. And I never much liked the console-like boss battles where you'd have to restart the entire boss encounter to get to the point where I got face palmed. In, say, Grim Dawn, the boss's damage at least stays in place (he doesn't magically self heal if you die before you can finish him).

Actually I get mad just thinking about D3 in this way. Maybe I should stay away.  icon_lol I certainly had lots of love for D3 in late beta, and I get wistful looking at all the gameplay videos I posted about it.

D3 patch 2.0 still has this.  It's pretty annoying.

My wife, who was born and raised in Seattle, said that they have taken some liberties with the in-game geography.  No way you can see the Space Needle from the 520 pay bridge she says.

Facial animations are really good and the game looks amazing.  Looking forward to a long gaming session tonight.
I bet you have fun times during the 49ers vs Seattle games

TitanFall is fun in its own right.  But I don't' think it has any legs to stand on when it comes to long term.  I keep thinking they had all this time to develop this game, took out single player so all they had to do focus on was the multiplayer and they offer less than their competitors.

The weapons don't excite me at all.  There's not enough upgrades.  I agree with Hark about the gamertags.  I'm tired of seeing dicks.  However I'd love to see more customization with the mechs and the pilots.

Overall, at it's core the game is fun, but at the same time I feel a little cheated considering the narrow scope of their game design.

Yeah, but the bots are the only ones I can kill!  smile

just imagine if you didn't have the bots to shoot at.  It means you can focus your energy on the things that count.  While the bots are easy, I think it makes the game harder because it distracts the player.

For those who struggle with the game...

1: Basically a 3rd dimension has been added to the game.  People can hang on walls now, rooftops are now easily accessible compared to other games.  There's just more you have to pay attention to.

If you don't want to be seen as a participant of the console war, stop being a champion warrior of one side even to the extent of coming into the thread of the console YOU DON'T OWN and posting an 8 paragraph essay about it.

Hey guys, I'm late to the party for this, but I just got my new PC and I'm considering getting a good MP game to take the edge off icon_biggrin. What's the situation with BF4 on the PC? Is hacking and cheating rampant? Also I don't have a mic yet, is that going to be a problem? Thanks for any advice.

It's definetely the game to have if you want to see what your PC can do.
I haven't played in a while, but when I did I didn't notice any cheating, like I do in Call of Duty. 
Mic is nice if you are in a platoon or with friends, but it's not required.

Yeah. I dunno.

BF4 just seems so robust and there's SO much going on. These scaled back shooters- regardless of how 'different' they are- seem somehow empty and devoid of action.

 icon_neutral

I mean, Titanfall certainly isn't going to be for everyone, and that's totally fine, but I'm having a hard time thinking how your beta gameplay could possibly have been empty and devoid of action. 

Plus the two are totally different games.  BF4 is slower paced and more methodical.  TitanFall is COD on steroids with easy grunts to shoot at.

Well I was first skeptical about all the Harbaugh news.  Profootballtalk is like TMZ, they often make things up just to get readers to visit.  But now there has been confirmation from the Browns and finally Jed York.  I think this will be Harbaugh's last year as the head coach of the 49ers.  Trent Balke and Harbaugh are both alpha males and I guess they can't work together.   Harbaugh knows that if he walks and the 49ers refuse to pay him, he knows he's going to get what he wants elsewhere.  49ers need to get their head out of the sand and quickly remember what we were like 4 years ago.
