Re: GoT Season 6 Discussion (SPOILERS)

I remember George saying that too actually. Also I did a bit of a google and in the book Leaf says "they killed him long ago" after Coldhands stays outside to fight the Wights. Benjen only went missing 2 years ago. I guess 2 years is a long time if you're dead, but at the same time the Children live...

Re: GoT Season 6 Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wait Coldhands wasn't already in the show? Damn I'd swear he was. I didn't see a giant ass elk though, so it could be one of these things where they use the same name but give him a drastically different story. See the Night King (actually notably different to the Night's King in the books). Ok so I...

Re: Overwatch

Yeah sad to see Rapha's team knocked out :( They fought hard at the end there, was pretty disappointed Zero4 stayed on Pharah for so long because it didn't feel like he was doing much in those OT pushes. They had 3 tracers and Z4 still stayed on Pharah for some reason. Allmental was doing some aweso...

Re: Overwatch

fps online arena shooter Overwatch is not an arena shooter. If there was a CTF mode I agree it would have to be 1-flag in the middle. I just don't think walking forward and back would be fun in this game. Walking up from the spawn is the most boring part already. I really just can't imagine a mode ...

Re: Overwatch

You can't just add CTF into this game though. It's balanced as an objective game. The two main modes involve two teams slowly (or not so slowly) advancing and retreating horizontally, while one team tries to capture a point/move the payload. King of the hill is different because it focuses everyone ...

Re: Overwatch

Given that the microtransactions have nothing to do with gameplay it's fine. That's a big part of the reason Evolve failed - paid DLC blues. Bigger chaotic games just wouldn't be fun. Things can already get pretty spammy and shit, especially in pubs when 2 of your team mates both decide to play Mei ...

Re: Overwatch

Don't worry 99% of pubs are still total garbage. Just don't be an idiot - jump on the point if you have to in overtime, move in with your dudes, don't pick snipar if someone else already has, don't just wander off from the point in payload to look for frags.

Re: Overwatch

Yeah coming from Quake I'm liking Pharah's rockets, but her movement is too boring to really give me much of a Quake vibe :c Junkrat is a lot of fun to play on D. Really hard to be effective on attack most maps though. I've been fairly happy with my games so far, except for one where I died like 14 ...

David Cage games do tend to miss some beats. I watched a playthrough of Beyond: Two Souls and that just looked like a total mess. Heavy Rain can be funny at least.

Genji is good for a lot more than that, but he's really tough to play well. The fragging power of a Genji can totally turn the tide of a game. Also I didn't realize Genji could deflect Pharah's rocket barrage until tonight, and I learned it the hard way :< No clan support yet, but I don't know what ...

Why do the white walkers want to kill (well they end up doing so) that dude (warg is it??) and as such, Bran also? Yeah I would have liked some more setup with that. In the books it's at least suspected that the tree man is another former Lord Commander and Targaryan bastard, but I don't think that...

I was wondering this episode if they were going to bring Mance back, but I guess that's off the cards. Kind of annoyed they're throwing Theon into the mix of the Kingsmoot. There w...

I've seen some of the easier stuff too though. Lots of projectile enemies with weaknesses if you shoot ...

Re: GoT Season 6 Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well with Aerys it started as jealousy and some paranoia fueled partly by how much more competent Tywin Lannister was than him. One of his biggest fears was that Tywin would try to kill him, but really the Lannister takeover was only ever going to come from the marriage between Cersei and Rhaegar. A...

Ok Kharis, time to show off how much of this bullshit I remember - Dany isn't Rhaegar's daughter, she's his sister. Aerys is her daddy, and Aerys' sister/wife Rhaella died giving birth to Dany. The theory is that Tyrion is Aerys' son, because Aerys at least fondled Joanna Lannister at her wedding to...

If Dany was a waste then what was the stuff in Meereen? Surprised nothing happened with the dragons.

The game is surprisingly playable on 200-300ms ping, especially if you're not playing a hitscan character. Tracer and McCree are off the cards, as are any hopes of being a good Reinhardt or Winston, but I've still won lots of games on that ping. It seems like the more Aussies I party with the more I...

The Lord of Light is the only god we've seen get shit done. Time and time again he delivers with something, so I think it's safe to say this was Red magic.
