They just need to add Techies to the game and everything will be amazing.

Best hero ever. He's a great noob filter too. Anyone who complains about him is obviously someone who has never bought wards/gem before so you immediately know they're a noob.

@max-hit @AlexFili You know, I honestly think this would be really cool. If you directly controlled your hero with analogs and such. Obviously you can't just "copy paste add controllers" and make a good game but I think a controller-based MOBA could be a lot of fun.

The main issue a controller would have is point/area targeted spells. Those would take too long to target on an analog whereas a mouse just points and clicks.

It's not like an RTS where you need control bazillions of units.

You people are killing me.

All he's doing is speculating on the state of motion/facial capture technology and it's applications to games. That's all he's doing.

There are problems with motion capture that are still a bit of an issue for game rendering. For one thing they're hugely intensive due to their complexity so they either have to be simplified, which begs the question "why bother in the first place?", or they have to be reserved for specific scenes and important characters only (most common). Unimportant things always use simpler animation because it's much less intensive to render. Having to render stuff in realtime is the huge difference between a game and a video.

Another big problem with motion captured animations is that they're time-consuming to edit or tweak afterwards. Not to mention there are things that are difficult/impossible to make your actors perform.

For instance using Gollum as an example, they used a combination of motion capture and keyframes because there were things he had to do that were impossible for Serkis (for one thing, Serkis was far too large in comparison to Gollum's starved figure). Best example is that scene in the beginning of Two Towers where Gollum is climbing vertically down the wall of rocks. Serkis couldn't act that out so it was done with traditional keyframe animation.

@Emerald_Scott Play another game for hours while it finishes downloading the entire game, or play the game immediately and let it download the necessary data as you play.


Seems like a useful feature to me.

So long as it isn't overly bright I don't care. My PC power LED is bright as **** and that doesn't bother me.


It's about time we got a speaker on our controllers. There's plenty of game/non-game uses for that. Can't find the controller? Push a button on the PS4 to make all controllers beep for a few seconds.

Augmented reality called "The Playroom" that sounds "interesting" on a great number of levels...

The user reviews are hilariously trolly.

@justinka777 @Spinnerweb Biased sexism. As opposed to unbiased sexism.

@Chaos_Dante_456 @Trail_Mix The characters do make it fun but the endlessly repetitive dialogue wears out it's welcome very fast.

@00LiteYear No matter how desperately you'll try to blame it on the reviewer, this game just isn't good. There's pretty much no "game" to found here, actually.
