Lately I’ve been trying out this online dating thing that all the kids are talking about

So far it’s going alright

Here are a few highlights paraphrased from matches I looked at tonight:

“Basically I’m a fan of ceilingfans”

“You should know I like red beans and rice more than I like most people”

“You should message me if you want to destroy white supremacy”

“Don’t even talk to me unless you realize it’s ok to punch Nazis”

Ok! It's time for a pop quiz on my romantic interests: Out of those four dating profiles, which one convinced me to send a message?

    There's an awful lot of vitriol toward for honor

    did Ubisoft kill some loved ones or something?

    I'm unsure if I'm going to buy it but like... there's a lot of errant speculation and you can literally play it right now, for free, which I would assume one should do if they're going to adopt a wholeheartedly hostile stance toward it???

    I spent a few hours playing it today and it seems really fun, the combat is reasonably deep... I just don't think there's enough content there for a full priced game and I can easily see Ubi parceling out more stuff for $$$

    I think it's boring and Ubisoft has done their usual obfuscating it behind pretend heft and weight but the core of each game type is utter and complete boredom. It's bedtime, I can explain more tomorrow.

    @OnTheLastCastle

    Ok cool I'm genuinely curious to get your perspective because the game seems pretty fun. I've only but a few hours into it but I'm having fun so far.

    My rule for games criticism is generally some variation on 'You do you,'; For Honor lacks appeal to me because it's peer to peer. YMMV.

    It's definitely more fun than Chivalry and other such games

    I'll find out if my friends get it and I will, since I really really like the combat, and the p2p's been okay so far, but otherwise no

    being cross platform is a pretty huge plus

    I just wish my friends would believe me that Rainbow Six Siege is the way and the light and buy that

    I think the world has more or less collectively decided that entrance fees for multiplayer games are no long acceptable (see: Evolve, Titanfall 2, Battleborn).

    So you now have to start judging multiplayer titles against other titles that are also free, because that is probably the status quo going forward.


    How does For Honor stack up in this regard?

    Ehh Titanfall 2 had a full campaign it was just stuck between 2 other shooters.

    And thats not totally true regardless cause R6:Siege is doing so well it got a second year of DLC coming.

    It's definitely much slicker than all but a tiny handful of free to play games, with only around 6 hours under my belt in it it's hard to say for sure but I think I only like Dark Souls melee combat better, if For Honor had more meat on its bones it would be an A++ instant buy forever

    Without dedicated servers though and the content it has (given that from all accounts the single player is kind of an ancillary experience) I think it should be $30? Idk, at $48 I'd definitely get my money's worth but I got other shit to play

    Edit: oh I guess just the stupid battle lines or whatever are cross platform, that's silly this seems like the perfect game for it

    apparently the DLC will be mostly free, although I expect any major expansions to not be free.

    but yeah I'm going to give it like, six months or so and if the game hasn't died by then because of Ubi's cheapness then I'll probably pick it up on a sale or something.

    Also Overwatch is massively popular, and CS:GO rivals League of Legends for popularity in e-sports.

    Like, what are some hugely popular free-to-play competitive multiplayer games that aren't MOBAs? Hearthstone and World of Tanks are pretty popular.

    If you want to make a MOBA, sure I'll buy that you pretty much have to go FtP these days. Outside of that, though, I don't think the world has "collectively decided" anything about multiplayer games that require purchasing the full game.

    Watching some more of Hormones, a Thai version of Skins, more or less.

    Consuming Thai fiction is odd, because Thai folks all go by nicknames. Like, eeeeeveryone. All the time. Who the hell even knows what their formal name is. Something very long.

    So, you have character names like Dao, Thee, Non, Mhog, and so on. OK, cool, no problem.

    But mixed right in with them you also have folks named Boss, First, Robot, and Sprite. And plenty of English names mixed in there too.

    I really don't know of any other cultures that do something like that, it's really unique.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Honestly I probably could have just responded to that post with "Overwatch" and been done with it.

    Maybe also another post that said "CS:GO".

    I mean, you included Battleborn in that list, which is basically famous solely because it got absolutely CRUSHED by Overwatch when they shared a release date.

    I was really close to finishing Shadow of Mordor, got like halfway through Mafia 3 and Syndicate last year. I just can't keep focus on them for as long as they want. I didn't even finish GTAV actually.

    I haven't kept tabs but I think Horizon might be open world too, I'm really excited about that game but we'll see I am always excited but end up not playing through.
