Valve isn't forcing them to charge for the mods though. They chose themself to charge for it now that there's an easy available way to do so.
Fuck Totalbitch and his hypocritical ass.

Valve is fucking dead to me and i will pursue almost every alternative.
I was putting off the decision of buying GTA 5 via retail since it wasn't linked to steam but after this? I'm going through with it.
>donations are not a reliable source of income
It's like you've never heard of a charity before
Fuck even youtubers and streamers rely a shit ton on donations
What mods do you guys actually care enough about that you're mad you have to pay for them?

Most of the worthwhile, not-futa/horse cock ones are always going to be free.
Deny the ones that cost money and continue to buy the free mods. What's so hard about this concept?

I'm sure Gabe is a saint and was totally forced to do this!
He didn't just give permission to steal people's content as long as said content is still free! Neither did he give the ok to delete any negative criticism on steam along with putting even stuff like just viewing user ratings behind the paywall!
Everything about this is shady and anti-consumer and Valve and Bethesda deserve every bit of bad publicity they get.
You can't kill what is already dead.
>pccucks really think PC ever had games
I'm pretty sure the money is going to Bethesda.
It's not about the cut, dumbfuck, it's about doing this fucking shit in the first place.

Love how shills can't even figure out why we're mad at your shilling.

But yeah, ME3 is good game, but not that good ME.
Ya know, what the fuck ever happened with the conduit? All I can remember is slapping a bunch of shit on it then in a cutscene, all that shit comes off right before the battle and they let it drift I think?
Humans are intellectually superior to the alien species, not physically so.
I liked the notion of the reapers saying "you can´t comprehend our reasons" then you would confront them in a climactic showdown, barely managing to stop them from winning handsomely by the skin of your teeth, then something flashy and inexplicable happens, galaxywide upheaval - because the reapers seize to exist in their current form or at all, and then nothing about the "how" is explained, just the aftermath of the "what", because SURPRISE!, they were right when they told you that you couldn´t understand them or their existence even in the slightest.

The end would be: everything changed, nothing is better, but at least the reavers are gone, leaving you with the possible question: did they prevent something worse from happening? were they just a presence of a higher form of being in our plane of existence? Were they just giant tentacle cocks that liked being all edgy and mystical?


That would even have been proper science fictiony.

I wish I had better experiences with the community. Yesterday I had to explain the entire normal Garuda fight to a tank who started out eating every slipstream and facing her TOWARDS the middle rocks. And the worst part was he started getting an attitude after we wiped three times and I continued thoroughly explaining every mechanic he needed to worry about.

And fuck you new captcha, a sandwich is not bread.
of course there also just needs to be more features overall.

I dislike that my character looks kind of stranded most of the time because their neutral face is so blank looking.

Some angrier looking eyebrows would help.
I imagine he felt as bad as much as you felt disappointed. He'll get better one day.
Yeah, that's mystified and annoyed me for a while. Five minute cooldown on an AoE that can require a tiny bit of juggling to get positioned right depending on the circumstances, and then gets made a fool of by Fire II. I'm also hoping there's some kind of pet cleanse coming down the pipeline, preferably as a Sustain trait.
Whitemage plays somewhat like a Holy Pally/ Holy Priest in healing styles. It's very easy to play whitemage and be effective at it, but very difficult to play whitemage lategame and be a fantastic healer due to the way mana works and how reliant they are on huge heals. They're nearly always useful in a group unless you're a really shit player though, most groups will pick a whitemage for endgame content if given a choice because of how hard it is to fuck up playing one on most endgame fights.

Scholar doesn't really play like anything wow has. Discipline priests maybe if you want to count the bubbles, but they rely on smaller heals and damage mitigation and rediculous micromanagement. I main scholar and there's something like 30 buttons i have to use in a fight, with half of those having other macroed abilities tied in. Scholar starts out as a literal copy/paste of warlock (pets and everything) with arcanist, and later becomes this insane mixture of "what if warlocks were raid healers" class that has to micromanage every single activity the pet does and constantly be on their toes with cooldowns and rotations to be effective. Scholars when played well are easily the best healers in the game by far, but i've met less than a handful of good scholars.

Micromanaging your pet is too hard for most people, knowing how to heal and rotate your mana cooldowns, whispering dawn, healing buffs, aoe raid damage reductions and saving lustrates ends up very difficult for almost every player i see. Most scholars will end up letting the tanks die in 8 man extreme content when the other healer dies, Whitemages not so much.

I'm a fantastic scholar, i outheal other players 3:1 consistently with the same gear, i think they're better, but i wouldn't trust ever meeting another good scholar in your raids.

Come to think of it, you could throw a dart at damn near any Nintendo property that isn't and strike gold with an insufferable fanbase.
There are cool fans in Nintendo and Sony aswell. But PCucks are by far the most shitposting out of all the fanbases. And flip their shit when people use consoles. Consolefans don't care if people game on PC, but its not the same vice versa.

They shit on any game that isnt on PC, they shit on graphics constantly because its all that matter to them, they shit on everything. They are the most intolerable out of the bunch.
From Software, Smash, Metroid.

That's a big three. Donkey Kong fans sorta get there too. But I think it's more of Rare fans than DK fans.

no, people are still "hung up" on it because it's the best game in the franchise despite having come out in 2001

i know it's hard for a casual like you to understand, but games with high skill ceilings are fun to play and git gud at

>so level ADP up to 30 and stop crying

People need that much? Holy fuck I usually stop just under 20.

Fair enough.
ADP is also tied to END

the soft cap is 30 END / 30 ADP and the hard cap is 50 each
When it comes to Bed of Chaos, you actually have a few seconds worth of time to perceive and take in your damn surroundings. Capra is plain bad design. Like, you have a 8x4 room on your hands, with a boss taking up literally one fourth of it, and two stunlocking dogs which rush to you the very second you enter. Pure, bad design.
I think it's a decent game but easily one of the most disappointing sequels. Same with Heroes of Might & Magic IV or Kotor 2.

At least it's not a disappointing sequel AND a shit game like Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age 2, Devil May Cry 2, Disciples 3 etc.

Marvel Heroes is awesome

I had more fun with it than Path of Exile. It's more flashy, the combat is faster paced which I enjoy a great deal and the presentation, especially the voice acting is superb. Even if you don't like Marvel I still recommend it purely for the gameplay.
it's not finished
you can play up to second chapter of third act right now

but what's there is really good
PPSSPP works really well, and you can have Monster Hunter Portable 3rd not look like complete ass with the HD version.
I will keep waiting then, I'd really rather play the whole thing than chunks of it at a time.

Nice to hear that what there is of it is good though.

imo a major difference is that people who make video games don't claim to be artists. whether or not something is considered to be art depends a lot on the context, especially if the person who has created it is considered to be an artist. if an average joe puts grease in a dirty bathtub, it isn't art. if joseph beuys does the same, it's a masterpiece. a successful painter made a gallerist display abstract paintings that supposedly were created by a talented foreign artists and people were pretty impressed. if they had known that the artist was in fact her baby daughter, they wouldn't have considered the paintings to be art.

i'd say that there are many video games that would be considered to be art if the creators made a serious effort be recognized as artists.
