    or it could be "pay to win now or wait two thousand hours to get the shit you want" aka tribes
    More like you have the impression of it being pay to win because you haven't unlocked any upgrades when you've started the game, but in all reality you're just a terrible player because you're new to the game.
    I can play on my 0% soldier and still own.

    But then again one of the main reasons I despise pay to win is you should not make grinding the main point of the game.

    I'm fed up of every game being, "Oh to be able to get everything in this game you need to commit well over 300 hours".

    Which is going to happen, because otherwise there would be no reason to have micro transactions to cut ahead, they need to be arduous grinds. Which is just terrible.

    i guess i didnt really mean pay to win, just "pay to get the unlocks instead of a 400 hour grind." f2pers in tribes get such shit for XP compared to weapon prices

    I'll be inclined to be a combat medic, transport or gunship pilot. Usually the roles I take in any game offering them.

    I like getting to score good without risking my ass too much and instead putting in good will and maybe smarts over raw skill, so I'm guessing I'll have to be a medic.

    i'd expect these magazines to be contained within plastic covers so that shit wouldn't happen

    but apparently they aren't very smart

    i hope to get a beta key to this

    anybody got any?

    Me and a friend have been discussing what faction to play.

    It leans towards TR and maybe NC, but most likely TR.

    I really hope they're planning to let Europeans into the beta as well.. Otherwise I think I will cry myself to sleep every night until the game is out.

    also world of tanks

    I'd probably pay a subscription to this game either way so I'm not terribly alarmed

    Being under the impression the magazine shop I work at only stocked the UK version of PC Gamer, I was pleasantly surprised today while tidying up the gaming section when I found a single US copy sitting behind all the UK copies. I instantly snagged it.

    10 minutes later some neckbeard walks in and asks if we had any in stock. "Sorry, we just sold out."

    The runner-up of the competition is a website's (unused) twitter that looks about as legit as SEKCobra's site.

    It needs to be convenient though, and getting it to burn enough to kill me before my family or neighbours called the fire brigade would be difficult.
