    << PERVIOUS 10NEXT 10 >>
    IN RESPONSE TO: StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    This new release is sort of bittersweet. For a long time I've not been happy with the way Blizzard games have been going. Battle.net after three years still feels like it has half the features of the old one. Micro-transactions and monetization are everywhere. And I keep feeling that I have less and less of a control over something I bought. And games just don't seem as fun as before, especially Diablo III endgame.

    And whenever concerns are brought to Blizzard the response is a rather shocking 'F. that Loser'.

    This is not a rant, but rather just disappointment at the direction Blizzard has been heading when it turned into a corporation. This is the first in 2 decades that I am not buying a blizzard game on launch even though I was planning on getting 4 copies for myself and family. Maybe I'll get it later if the outlook improves.

    Not that much because no one expected large damage, it never happened like this before...

    IN RESPONSE TO: Hurricane Sandy

    Smoking Joe, Midland was hit hard. I won't be able to take my walk there for quite some time. There is heavy police presence there to ward off looters. And sand is everywhere, many many blocks inland where there shouldn't be any sand. I saw cars on top of each other around that area so I am afraid if you had any cars, they would be a total loss. And I am not even talking about the houses.

    The good news I read is that deductibles are being waived for us and following that FEMA should be able to get us going again. But for our home we'll just pay for repairs out of our own pocket, other people need it more.

    Ok so our street is finally clear of downed trees and there is now a support center giving out food and water at the bowling alley around the corner. There are still a lot of homes without power and I almost walked into a downed wire that was dangling from above. There were no lights so I just did not see it at 6PM when it gets dark here.

    The death toll is up to 20 and bloomberg decided not to hold the marathon, I believe, for the first time in its history. FEMA has tables outside where people can make phone calls and charge their mobile phones.

    There are crews from all over the country, Maryland, Virginia and Obama got us some crews airlifted from as far away as California and Texas. What we really need are generators and gas because this is an island and it is very hard to find things.

    The gas station on the corner had a mile-long wait line of cars and a long line of people holding gas gannisters for their generators. Now it is empty and darkened. They can't get more gas to it since the pumps for the tankers are out of power. The ironic thing is that the out-of-state crews came on their own trucks but when they got here, there is no gas to power them.

    It's pretty nutty over here there is a lot of international media here but when their news stories are over they get the hell back to Manhattan and we are still stuck with the damage and the debris. Situation here is pretty sad and the last thing on anyone's mind is the election. At the point we just don't care who wins as long as we get the help we need. And once again, I consider the fact that our house is still standing to be pretty lucky.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Hurricane Sandy

    I live a few blocks from south beach in staten island and the place is gutted. Houses are destroyed, debris everywhere. We just got power 2 hours ago since monday. We had 17 people die on the island so far and there is sand in peoples homes. We have roof damage and minor flood damage and we are 800 m from ocean. NY has never seen such weather before, it just does not happen here and yet it did. Tons of people are homeless and even more without power. I am gonna volunteer to help clean up but we need all the help we can get.

    Vid at end is a few blocks from my house


    Edit: Upped the number of victims to 17.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Software Engineers?

    I always wanted to work for Blizzard but after Bill Roper left, Blizzard north got shut down, monetization of Battle.net 0.2, hackings and the Diablo III endgame it just does not interest me anymore. Which is sad because I spent at least 1000$ on blizzard/silicon synapse products... Sorry :(

    It's very hard to die if the boats are empty.

    I am so confused, where is the Russian guy? They are all speaking Portuguese (in fact with a strange accent - gonna guess Brazilians).

    Been following GF since war2 days, about time smurfing term came out. Been reading ep since creation.

    I looked at the feature list and I am extremely concerned that there are no private games on Battle.net 0.2. Does this mean the end of MF runs with your friends and doing bosses with your friends? Everything is public now?

    IN RESPONSE TO: Mass Effect 2

    It`s basically a watered down RPG. They removed all experience gain, inventory management and there is heavy Oblivionesque leveling of enemies with you. I felt no progression at all the entire game. The story was good though. I hear ME3 is removing even more RPG elements.

    Nebu ... HOW are you able to watch all those shows, do gaming, take care of your family, and work at the same time? Do you have clones to spread the load?

    IN RESPONSE TO: StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    Yeah I mean just a little about myself. I`ve been around since AOWL days (you know you are old school if you know what that means) and have been following GF since before where he works now. We`ve always had great communities where we discussed how to best play War2 on a 28.8 connection, who can make the best Peon voice and strategies too. Unfortunately most of my friends play on EU servers and we cannot communicate (outside of Steam). Do PM me for some practice. I am falling asleep looking at the same top 10 custom games. It`s Karjala-876 - much appreciated!

    IN RESPONSE TO: StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    I am a bit bored of bnet already. It seems like I am in The Void most of the time. I thought that by posting ids we would be able to chat and play but no one really messages. It just doesn`t feel social at all. Fortunately there is Steam overlay and I can talk to players from other regions.

    IN RESPONSE TO: StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

    There are many Risk and some Diplo maps floating around but it is almost impossible to get to them. They are many tiers below the top 10 shown on the custom menu list. I gave up playing custom (My favorite thing about sc1) for now.
