    Soldier is an okay off-healer. But as a primary healer he is pretty bad.

    His healing has really bad up time, is static, and has a small area of effect. This means that you can't sustain your...

    My experience has generally been that higher ranked players are more pleasant than lower ranked players. People are aware enough to know what good match ups are and everyone just kinda falls into...

    Eh, I don't think Wenz is totally off the mark. With a game like Dota you can clearly see how people are doing and why you are doing badly. At a glance I can see that our offlane is being zoned and...

    I think they got rid of the DL limit within the last year or two.

    I'm not hand-waving ancient prejudices away. However, they were functionally different than modern racism. They were much more heavily based in ethnocentrism and xenophobia...

    Calling the Romans racist is a bit of a stretch. The concept as we understand didn't exist then and applying our understanding of it to ancient peoples is misleading, and by calling the Romans racist...

    Yea, Eight Rooks has it down. The story at the macro level was pretty terrible. Personally I think the game does succeed narratively at the micro level though. The story of you sneaking through the...

    Did we even watch the same video? This is looking much closer to Arma, Squad, or Red Orchestra than CoD. Heavy weapon sway, heavy recoil, no "spotted" marker above enemies' heads, hip fire that...

    Rushing was as much a part of the meta in CoH as it was in other popular RTSs. The biggest difference being that rather than wrecking the enemies base, as you did in the eponymous zerg rush. You...

    The RTS genre tends to be a jack-of-all-trades master of none genre, and I suspect it was popular largely because it was able to commercially support a number of disparate genres under one box. Even...

    I chose clickbait essentially off hand. But the article seems written as a completely partisan piece where Ubi has purely created a "right wing fantasy". Facts are ignored in order to create an us vs...

    It looks to me like you are criticizing a game for what you've experienced in a lock-down beta, and then thrown your weight behind an article that was written after playing about as much as you did....

    I personally don't think it is intentional. At least not in a way that is meant to keep people out of the genre.

    Wargames tend to have their own "language" separate from most other genres. This...

    The flamethrower from Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm is almost certainly the best flamethrower to appear in any game.

    Dunwall, land where there is no sun.

    The aristocrat guy is Sokolov, I think. The man responsible for all the fancy tech in Dishonored. He is originally from Tyvia which is the new location?

    I think games can do scary pretty decently. They just can't do traditional scary very well.

    Good scary games rely a lot more on putting you in incredibly strange environments. I would call, at...
