I'd argue that £20 is kinda cheap for a controller. That's about half the price of a new PS3 controller (and by conversion $10 cheaper than what they cost over here). While I haven't checked too thoroughly, I doubt you'll find much good besides those chinese knock-offs you mentioned.

But, if it's not worth it to you, then its not worth it. I know I'll be grabbing one someday for $40, because I think I'll find it convenient...and my brother stole all the 360 controllers...but I'm not here to change your mind.

I'm just tight with money. I even squeak when I walk, sometimes.

Has anyone played League of Legends? My nephew has been playing it for a long time now, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me why is the game so addicting to play?

^Thanks for the info. My nephew really wants me to play with him. I think I'll give it a shot.

Well, I play Dota2 (don't tell LoL players haha), and the two games are honestly quite similar ... they are both games that are extremely focused on teamplay. The way you coordinate with your team and use your character's abilities is key to winning. The best way to describe it is like a StarCraft or Warcraft game that has slightly less micro due to the fact that you are mostly controlling one character rather than small troupes of minions. You also level up throughout each match, kind of consolidating an RPG-like experience into short 45ish minute bursts of time.

I have never played one of those games before but I am really looking forward to Heroes of the Storm by Blizzard.

You're pretty much correct. There are some horrid people on Dota, but there are also some awesome people. You need to get out of the beginning brackets and start getting matched up with the higher-level players before you start meeting some honest and helpful people. The problem with that is that you need to get good at the game, which can be tough to accomplish when you're constantly teamed up with the scum of the earth, as you mentioned.

Also, in my experience, I frequently get matched with people who only speak Spanish, even when I'm set to only search on Eastern U.S. server. Makes communication in a game that's all about communication pretty rough.

Yeah, I hate playing teamplay games like League of Legends and DOTA simply because I feel like if I do bad, I'm contributing to the failures of other people, no matter how much I dislike them. Makes me feel bad, you know?

And I just ordered a Wired controller from Target. Hopefully it gets here soon. If nothing else, I can play Fallout: New Vegas with it.

I use a Nostromo + Naga for most of my gaming but i have a 360 and a Wii U pro controller for games where a real gamepad is better.

Does anyone here play Star Wars: Battlefront ll and know if people are still playing it? Getting the game tomorrow on Steam's Autumn Sale.

@ShadowFox254

I don't personally play it, but I do believe I've heard that people still do. You should check out the forums on Steam and see.

^Thanks for the advice guys.

^For real?

Edit: Well, one thing for sure, that traffic.

Nice going to have to pick those up. I have only played the third one myself but a free game is a free game.

I had a bit of trouble claiming it, but I got my Fallout 2 & Tactics, having owned Falout 1.
The servers are probably under a lot of stress, so you may encounter page errors.

Want to know the funny thing? Another part of the [GOG] sale is picking a mystery box that coincides with a special deal. Mine was Fallout 2 :/

Ok, so I got banned from a server in Star Wars Battlefront ll for friendly fire (only had -1 point) . How the hell was I supposed to know there would be friendly fire. I joined mid-game, and threw a grenade towards the enemy and hit one of my comrades instead. Does anyone how long is the banned? Been having it since yesterday.

I guess I technically just got into PC Gaming with Humble Bundle X. My laptop can somehow run most of the games decently (occasional extreme lag) despite its internal graphics and relatively slow CPU (i3-3227U). I'm planning on building a desktop eventually, so I can run the games with, at the very least, normal settings.

The best bet there is to contact the company behind the game and ask them. They are the only ones who would know.
