So basically the game is bearable to look at if you play with mods?

 

BioWare confirmed to actually be Bethesda wearing a BioWare mask

and that stuff is only good for one playthrough; if you start a new game it's all gone.

So streaming Overwatch doesn't work too well for me, because my internet is crap and trying to both run a multiplayer game and stream at once just leads to dropped frames and an unplayable ping a lot of the time. I've recorded a few sessions, but going back to do editing (I don't like dumping the unedited, non-live footage) hasn't been something I've had a lot of time to do.

 

That being said, I can stream single-player games okay, but I've found I'm not that entertaining when trying to do commentary on my own. If anyone would be up for joining me in commenting/deriding me to the audience as I flounder through random games, I'd love to give that a whirl; maintaining a skype voice call while streaming should, I hope, still be within the realm of what my connection can handle

Currently streaming some Overwatch herewith Ambad and other folks, for those of you who might be keen.




#482263 Historical LEGO Suggestions?

WWI minifigs might not be a bad idea, since Battlefield 1 is currently a popular thing.

I guess all the people who were hyped up for this console but ended up disappointed have really Switched their position.

How do we go from a cheesy 2000's street racing movie to THIS?

 

It was never a cheesy 2000's street racing movie. It was always Vin Diesel's personal fantasies splattered onto a film reel. This entire series is the most spectacular documentation of a man's rapid ascent into sheer fabulous insanity in all of human history.

#480536 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by The Doctor on 05 December 2016 - 07:20 PM

Been playing Watch_Dogs 2, and I just realized that this is an Ubisoft game where you don't have to climb towers to open up the map.

 

2016 continues to be the year of things I never thought would happen.

The Star Wars Holiday Special is a bad comparison. Everyone involved with that thing's production was high as a kite; this movie probably didn't involve any more drugs than your usual Hollywood fare.

If the Thanoscopter doesn't make an appearance in Infinity War then I'm suing Disney.

I got so lost in that winding metaphor that I legit don't know what game or show you're talking about. Like J. Edgar Hoover walking around on a Tuesday afternoon, it was a thing of beauty, but I don't know where it stops and where it ends.

Carth/Kaiden/Jacob/Vega confirmed, then. Why is Bioware so obsessed with these complete and utter jabronis taking up a slot in my squad that could so much better be filled by a sick alien badass and/or waifu? Liam? They couldn't even come up with a mildly cool future name for him. What a loser. Hopefully he makes his heroic sacrifice early in the game so I don't have to put up with him for too long.

 

Psychological tactic. Have the player running around with Captain Whitebread early on (I can't remember if this guy was in the trailer but let's be honest he's gonna be a 30-something white guy with short dark hair), then when they get to meet the alien warrior bros and rainbow space babes, they'll seem all the more unique in contrast to the boring guy you've been running around with up until that point.
