Noobtoob's Week in Gaming: DATES ARE MEANINGLESS (31/7/17)
  • These days I seem to buy more games than I play. The amount of money I spend on games is ridiculous. I should stop but I just. I just don't. WWE 2k17 was on offer so I picked that up. Oh and inside at the same time. I bought a normal lost phone for my new Google Pixel and I'm probably going to pony up for the Uncharted add on and Pyre in the coming days.

    Anyway. This isn't NooBTooBs week on money wasting. This thread is about what games we have played and enjoyed in the last week, so here goes.

    Well.

    I ummmmmmm.

    I didn't actually play anything. See ya next week I guess.
  • Gears 4 - Played the new Horde maps and re-upped again.

    Dark Souls series - The playthru continues.

    Splatoon - Went back to do the single player challenges that I completely ignored previously. I've done the first 2 bosses and unlocked stage 3 so far.

    Mario Maker - Played some levels that were recommended. They were hard as balls as promised.

    CoD: Infinite Warfare - People claim that Ghosts is the worst game in the series. They're wrong. IW is absolute garbage. There is so little positive I can find to say about it. Ghosts didn't turn into a poor Wing Commander rip-off every alternate level.

    Dead Rising 4 - On Case 4 at the moment. It's OK. Probably the easiest to play in the series, but also the weakest. It's also very apparent that not much time was spent on the development and testing of the game. Everything feels rushed and sloppy.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider - Did a few missions in time attack mode. It's not really my thing. I love the actual game, but the score attack mode doesn't do it for me.

    My Name is Mayo - 15 minutes to platinum. I didn't know what this game was until someone told me to get it. I was trolled. You click on a bottle of mayo 10,000 times and you get a plat. That's it. Since I have a controller with a turbo button it was a breeze. I read somewhere that Sony took a game off PSN because it was a 5 minute plat. They should probably consider it with this game too.

    Gone Home - Another 10 minute walking simulator, but no plat this time. The game can apparently be beaten in under a minute. I had heard good things about this one. People have low standards.

    And as a side project I've been trying to hack my WiiU to make it region-free. I haven't bricked it but I also haven't succeeded yet either.
  • Doomfist is a high level character. I don't know if he blows but he definitely requires more thinking and tactics than most of the others. He can pull off some devastating combos. I think the Korean pro teams will love him, but we mere mortals will have to be content with mediocrity.
  • He should be ok in teams, but in PUGs he's kind of dead weight. Although he's still new so maybe it'll get better. Other than occasional charge kills though he ends up being cannon fodder in most matches I see.
  • I see him more as a tank buster. He can shred them if they get caught in his combo. If he gets you anywhere near a wall you're screwed. Like any other character, rushing in and taking on the entire other team solo will get you dead, which is how most people play him. Rocket in, get slaughtered. Like amateur Reinhardt players using the pin ability.
  • Having played a lot now he is very good and surprisingly tanky. A couple people I know who play a lot of comp think he'll get nerfed. He has an exceptionally high win rate in comp right now (the very highest, an ungodly 8% higher than 2nd place), although a lot of that is probably due to people figuring out how to beat him. Still, it's a much stronger performance at launch than both Orisa and Sombra had.

Howdy, Stranger!
