Re: Shadowrun Returns

Well all in all it was a gigantic shitfest of terrible programming and design. Adept design is terrible (can't use cyberware, can't use special attacks with killing hands, etc) and rigger can easily solo the game, unless drone bonuses randomly turn off and some spells are useless while others (haste...

Re: Shadowrun Returns

I like the plot and ambiance + nostalgia value (some of the musics even sound like the SNES ones) but the rest is astoundingly mediocre. Would not recommend.

I recently installed a "Jailbreak the patriarchy" brower extension that swaps genders around. While very amusing to use while reading batshit extreme feminist or MRA pieces (here's a good one), my amusement hit its peak while landing on an Ubutun "woman page".

Re: Dota 2 Beta

By the way, it seems new players that want to watch the tournament through the client will have to
1) Get past the queue
2) Finish the tutorial
Which could be really annoying and put off a lot of people.

Also, for those who missed it there is some talk about dota2 in the starcraft thread.
