I don't know what to make of this election cycle.  The demagoguery is so far outside of the real world that it makes my brain hurt. 

How true.  I started out enjoying the GOP turmoil with Trump in the mix but that man is a walking time bomb imo, the promises he makes are unrealistic and dangerous.  On the other side Clinton has no appeal either, I don't see how the U.S. wins in this election.

There's nothing dazzling, inventive or new here, for sure, but like with most Blizzard games, what is here is incredibly well polished and distilled down to what works.  Consequently, it clicks easily when you pick up a controller.  You play for a bit, maybe wondering what the fuss is about.  You have fun, but wonder if you were expecting more.  If you don't just shrug and put it away at that point, you may find that several hours disappear before you know where they went.

For me, in both the beta and full game, I won't be happy until I've given every character a go at least once.  By that time, I will naturally have picked some favorites (which oddly, aren't lining up as neatly between the beta and retail release as I thought they would), and be able to settle into them, switching between some as the team requires.

So I'm about 30'ish hours in, I think I'm getting to the end, I get the "this is it, you can't turn back, better save" message...then the big bad runs off.  I'm then left with an incredibly vague set of directions on what to do next, which literally involve starting the game over (in new game +) and doing a very specific combat action during the first battle.  An action that I hadn't even used a single time during my previous 32 hours and I frankly didn't even remember was available as an option.  If you don't do this specific action, you simply...start the game over.  I came *this* close to unwittingly restarting from the beginning (and overwriting my previous save) but thankfully glanced at an FAQ that told me what to do. 

After avoiding that near-disaster, the game is now requiring me to backtrack over every area I've previously gone through and get the other half of the classes that I missed out on the first time.  Blech.  As with the first game, that might be the straw that broke the non-compelling-story camel's back.  It was only mildly engaging the first time through, I can't imagine keeping interest a second time.

Finally finished the game. Incredibly satisfying experience and the epilogue was beautifully done. Luckily I had not seen any spoilers so it was a nice surprising ending to an exceptionally awesome game.

I'm in the same boat as Ritt. Always wanted to play the FPS genre games, but its the same ole, same ole, when I do.
The essence of the FPS genre is always going to be the same. Run and gun. The genre would need a paradigm shift to change it from the way it is. It would then probably alienate the die-hard fps fans. So, guys like us Ritt, need a whole new Genre.
I don't even think about FPS games as viable for me. I just ignore the whole genre. Makes for better gaming.  slywink

Well RDJr has stated that he would now be up for another Iron Man, should Marvel be so inclined.

I keep being tempted to pick up this game, but I know that I suck at RTS type games so I'm not sure why.  I guess the idea of the big battles with orcs and Chaos and everything just looks and seems cool.

Man, who knew going into the first movie that the Captain America movie series would be the one with the most interesting events and character development.

It's too bad they didn't have quite as much setup for this kind of thing while Iron Man solo movies were still being made, but I can see why RDJ decided to opt in for this one.
