EDIT: The gang watched Josh play Overwatch. I am led to believe that fun was had. I’ll take your word for it. Thanks for watching.

The Best of 2011
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2011.
Mass Effect Retrospective
A novel-sized analysis of the Mass Effect series that explains where it all went wrong. Spoiler: It was long before the ending.
What is Vulkan?
What is this Vulkan stuff? A graphics engine? A game engine? A new flavor of breakfast cereal? And how is it supposed to make PC games better?

Welp, that was a thing. Poor Josh though, getting Genji twice in a row in MH.
Josh was talking about the fact that it seemed odd that getting damaged takes you out of cloak and I think it’s designed to get in, while the teleporter is getting out. During one of the dev streams he was placing his beacon, stealthing in, doing damage, then teleporting out (right next to a health pack he had hacked.) The teleporter stays on the ground for 15 seconds which is plenty time to do stuff.
Though you definitely hit the nail on the head for her role, she definitely seems to be a support just as much of an offensive flanker. You teleport behind, hack the tank to prevent defensive moves (or shut down ults) and then try to take down squishy or targets.
Plus, on certain maps, keeping 2-3 health packs hacked(and having a coordinated team) could replace having a secondary healer. No proof yet, of course, but I’m waiting to see what the pro teams do with her.
And here I thought the stream was going to be on a Friday. Doing it during a week when most people work pretty much excludes any European from viewing it. A shame, cause I would have liked seeing it.
+1 to that.
mumbles is named after top gun…so her middle name is loggins? :P
First name Galaxy, from Galaxy Express.
Second name Gun, from Top Gun.
… Last name Mumbles, from TF2.
so her nickname is gal gun? lol, might want to google that :P
Just to the point. I sometimes wonder where they take the nicknames from. And here’s the best I saw on http://www.123essay.biz (these are the writers’ nicknames): QueenSemicolon, Vocab, Seniora Transisto. LOL
That is the best post title ever.
