Title: What are you playing now?
Post by: legameboy on March 19, 2005, 10:04:28 am
PC

Just finished: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich. Both great games all around. KotOR II: TSL slacked way off at the end, but the overall storyline and characters were even better than the first. I spent a good fifty hours playing the one. FFvsTTR is a great game, thought it lacks in some areas.

On pause: Nada.

Now playing: Rome: Total War. I can't get enough of it.

I've got the Sims 2 in my CD-Drive. I'm not sure when I took it out last.

Hey, how was Freedom Force? I loved the first one. How is the second one? And how long did it take for you to finish in hours?

KOTOR (the original) was just fantastic. I haven't played the second one yet, I heard that the ending was sucky (they ran out of time I have heard from various people) and that doesn't sound good to me.

Yeah i just played through KOTOR II and the second half left me with a bad taste in my mouth but the first half i was hooked
I am also playing Sims 2 (which I play EVERY DAY)

I fear The Sims. I always think that if I start playing it, I'll never be able to stop, and my grades will get worse than they already are.

The big one for me is World of Warcraft -- having a lot of fun with that at the moment. My quasi-main is a late-teens hunter, but I'm an altaholic, so I'm playing several different characters here and there.

I still also log into City of Heroes every once in a while, just for a change of pace and to see what's going on, but it's not very often. Mostly (as alluded to in other threads) I'm keeping the account open to guarantee my slot on City of Villians beta (people with accounts over a year supposedly get in automatically).

In the non-MMORPG arena, it's baseball season, so that primarily means MVP 2005 and Diamond Mind Baseball (no graphics but probably the best statistics engine of any baseball game under the hood). I still play a little Madden football here and there as well.

FFvsTTR was great fun, you'll love it if you liked the first. It took me around twelve to fifteen hours to finish it.

I quite agree with your opinion of the first KotOR. Yes, KotOR II: TSL was rushed, tons of content was cut out. Here's a good article (http://www.theforce.net/latestnews/story/KOTOR2_The_Incompletion_Controversy_90085.asp) about that (it also includes a link to another article, also, these articles might contain spoilers, so don't so I didn't warn you). Like I stated before though, the overall experience is so awesome, that you keep on comin' back for more, even though you know you'll get heart-broken at the end. ^_^

Garry's Mod for Half-Life 2's always an entertaining way to kill time. I've also been replaying through Freedom Fighters a lot. How I love that game. As far as other shooters I'm playing the occasional HL mod (Natural Selection, Day of Defeat) as well as some Counter-Strike: Source. WoW always fills my RPG fix  ;)

Football Manager 2005 (Worldwide Soccer Manager is its name in the US), but i'm so damn bored of it that it's now more of a chore to pass the time when i'm not out, and i don't get much fun out of it anymore.

And erm... well i don't really play much anymore if i'm honest.  For years now i've been looking for "The Game" which will hold my attention for years.  The only games that have successfully done so are Age of Mythology (around a year and a bit that lasted), and the Championship Manager series (which i am now bored of...).  World of Warcraft was a huge disappointment, similarly Rome: Total War (far too easy).  Half-Life 2 has no replay value without mods (which i can't be bothered with) and i've been playing Counter-Strike for years now, and CS: Source is the same thing with increased graphics... woooow.

So yeah... i'm still looking for that game which will last me a long long time.  I'm hoping that Spore gives LOTS of replayability, because i really am starting to go off gaming, what with all the disappointments and money wasted on "great games" which have turned out to be nothing more than mediocre, in my opinion.  Maybe i'm just growing too old for these sorts of things what with other more important things in my life right now, but i'm always going to be a big kid at heart who loves his video games, whether i'm in my 20s, 30s or 60s... i just hope that video game developers don't keep letting me down.

Sorry, didn't intend to start ranting, but for some reason felt obliged to.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War for the most part.
A little bit of Half-life 2 and Nexus.

Oh, a little bit of Sacrifice if I can find anyone online anymore :P
It's getting harder and harder...

Welcome Crimson, glad you could join us. How is "Act of War"? I have been toying with playing that one. I really love good RTS games, but they are so difficult to find nowadays. That last really good one I played was Warcraft III. But I have heard good things about that game. Let me know what you think.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: CrimsonSapien on March 23, 2005, 01:35:16 am
Thanks for the welcome Steve.

As for AoW, I just picked it up last weekend so I really haven't had too much time to run it through the ringer. I did download the demo when it first came out, and although it was limited and full of bugs, the game still looked promising, hence the reason for the purchase. So far from what I have seen the game has a pretty good AI (at least the opposing AI is good). The game has plenty of eye candy. But what it seems to lack is more Units, and special abilities. Perhaps I am too spoiled with the C&C series and all the mods for it. My thoughts at this time, is that the game will probably shine after an expansion pack or two. I'll know more when I have had time to lock myself in the basement and play this game into the ground.

On another note I see you are running Simple Machines Forum, quite an interesting look. One that I have not seen before. I administer several phpBB and Nuke boards. I think I may have to download this forum and Frankenstein some of the features of it with phpBB and Nuke. (missing my evil twisted smiley here) lol!

Yes, I am surprised that not as many people run Simple Machines. Perhaps because it hasn't been around as long as the other boards. But their tools are outstanding and the programming within the boards is by far and away the very best I have ever seen (and I have been programming a long long time). Super clean, tons of comments, and very modular. Really a great job, and it's free (which is nice).

phpBB, Nuke, and vBulletin are okay ... but I like this board better. I have been using it since the beta for other sites and I really like the features and the super-clean look. Definately check it out. Now if they released a CMS as well I would be all set...
Title: Re: What are you playing now?

Now if they would only release a php version of Wildcat, Renegade or Searchlight. I would be set.  :o Wrong time era.  :D

Serously I will have to take some time and peek through the files of SMF and see how they go about doing things.. I am curious how featured the ACP and MCP is over what I use now.

I've been running dry on games lately.

Counter-Strike Source in my spare time~
KotOR II - So far it's pretty good, but I hear nothing but bad things about the ending.

The only other SMF that I recall is the one at AGS (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forum/).

Anyway, what am I playing right now? Well I'm still playing Freespace 2. Just like I've been constantly playing Freespace 2 for the past 6 or so years.

Ever had a game take over your life? I think I'm starting to turn into a Shivan fighter, I'm starting to go a little red and pointy around the edges.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?

Freespace 2 is a game that I really need to get my hands on.  The gameplay just sounds so superior in comparison to other space sims.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Ferret on March 23, 2005, 09:59:24 pm
It's the greatest game ever created.

You must get hold of it, maybe a copy from EBay or something. Underdogs version was crap.

When you get it, play through the entire main campaign. Then download the Source Code Project builds and all of the updated media files and play it again.

Then download the multitude of high quality user-made missions and campaigns.

Then sink your teeth into the very flexible and easy mission editor. I think I've just realised why I'm still playing it after nearly 6 years.

Well, after hearing about Spore, my interest in The Sims 2 has decreased rapidly...  Right now I am messing around with a cute little game.
---------
It's called Stranded.  - Full 3d!

You wake up on a 'deserted' island, you have nothing, will you survive or will you succumb to the dangers of the island?

Fun little timewaster, it will waste a lot of time too, making tools, huts, etc.

Well:

A little bit of sims 2
And...i think that's it, i never have that time to paly games, because of three reasons:

1. My Career (Which is not the main reason, but still)
2. I'm in the Graphics design world now
3.There is no game that really attracts me right now....

on my pc ive been playing Raganrok Online for the 6 or so months, on several different servers.
and on my xbox i have just finished KotOR2 - wtf sort of ending was that? i completed the game in about 25-30 hours, but i was expecting about 10+ more hours in it.
I play NHL 2005 every now and then, and have just started playing the Bards Tale, but im doubting if I will keep playing it, the cut scenes are very funny, I like the humour, but the gameplay is very repetative.

For a while, I was playing a fair amount of Pirates! Live the Life, Evil Genius, Warcraft 3, GTA: San Andreas and Lord of the Rings 3rd Age but at the moment I've cut down on my gaming.  I hang out in my friend's dorm room and watch him play videogames whilst I hang out on the internet.  I've found myself playing lots of Yahoo! games like Bookworm and Texttwist.  Bookworm is a very nice game to play while listening to the Podcasts, by the by.  I'd play more games but that would involve playing by myself or taking over my friend's xbox and there's nothing that really grabs me.  The last game I bought was Pirates! for the pc and X-Men Legends for the X-Box.  Both of those were last semester so I guess I've hit a dry spell.  c'est la vie. -leeman

Farcry, Gothic 2, system shock 2 with some friends, Baldur's gate 2 (for the 6,000 time) and Allegiance.

Gothic 2 is pretty good, takes skill to fight well amazingly enough.

If you like space combat games, I'd suggest Allegiance. It's a game Microsoft released long ago and is now free (they released the source code for it).
Basiclly, it's multiplayer team based space combat, with one person commanding the team. The commander builds structures and researches technology and new ships/weapons for the team. It takes a lot of teamwork and is incredibly cool with stealth elements, sneak attacks, massive capital ships with 6 or so turrets. Another interesting thing is it has many voice 'emotes' that really add to the whole atmosphere of the game.

Can find it here at http://www.freeallegiance.org/

Hmmm, man, I'm not very good at writing reviews.

Post by: lemurbouy on March 31, 2005, 09:21:18 pm
System Shock is a great game.  My roommate and I were totally creeped out before we met the first monster.  That's a good game.  It's even better in a dark room with headphones on.  gosh...damn.  -leeman

Been playing a bit of Civ2 lately for some reason.  Not sure why, since I play the exact same game every time.  Isolationist republic/democracy until I get to mobile warfare, then switch to fundamentalism for a holy war of extermination.  Good times...

While I've deviated a couple times to various Xbox acquisitions like Burnout 3, I keep heading back to City of Heroes.  A lot of it is being a superheroic RPG gamemaster for YEARS - but rarely a player.  Being able to do several characters of my own, each with their own style, look, powers, supergroups, etc., has been wildly addictive for me.

Patiently waiting for them to release Issue 4 update to the game.  Especially after poking around the test server...

I've been playing Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory lately (great game), but there sometimes the game feels like an advertising campaign. If anyone's interested I'll upload some pictures of what I mean.

Mmmm... product placement in a stealth game. Sneaky indeed. ;) I'd like to see pics, if you don't mind.

I just got Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 today. Man I can't get enough of this game, and I don't know why. There's so much fun stuff to do. I now understand why so many of my nerdy middle school friends disappeared when the first Rollercoaster Tycoon game hit the shelves. ;D

Rather surprisingly i've just bought The Sims 2 and have been playing it for a couple of hours.  A huge improvement on the original and i must admit i'm finding it entertaining.  However i'm not sure about it's longevity, but hopefully it will last quite a while and has some good replayability.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: voodoo on April 08, 2005, 05:24:05 pm
Sims 2 is fun in small doses. There are times where I just get hooked on it for a week, and then I can't stand it. It's like a cycle!

As for those Splinter Cell ads:

I don't think the requirements are top-of-the-line, but my computer is very good. I just finished building this computer a couple of weeks ago. It runs really smooth and I have pretty much every graphical option at max, so I do think that it will run fine on lower/medium settings on lower-end systems.

The texture and detail in each level is amazing!

Post by: Lord Janos on April 09, 2005, 06:31:47 am
Do you reckon my 9600XT(256mb) will be able to run it on around medium?  I see no reason why not, but it's not the best card in the world.  Played Half-Life 2 fine though so i don't see why not...
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: voodoo on April 09, 2005, 08:57:06 am
If it could handle Half Life 2 (which I have yet to try on this computer), I'm pretty confident that it will run Chaos Theory fine.

I use a Mac, which definitely limits the amount of computer games I can play. (I guess that's why I have a lot of console games...^_^) But there ARE quite a few good games that have been ported to Mac. I'm thinking of picking up KotoR, since I've heard nothing but good about it.

Post by: lemurbouy on April 12, 2005, 09:06:29 am
Hurray for Macs!  KOTOR is a pretty awesome game.  I played it over a break nonstop for 5 days after I first got it.  From the little I've played of KOTOR 2, they've added some interesting changes and some cool story stuff but it's good to have played the first game before moving to the second.  -leeman

On a whim I decided to reinstall Morrowind. It's surprising how much more fun a game can become when a best friend isn't shouting in my ear telling me what he wants *our* character to do in-game. :P

Anyway, now that I know what I was missing I am waiting for Oblivion like a giddy school girl. ;)

KOTR 2 is excellent apart from the graphical bugs and the very poor endings, but it provides a solid 24 hours worth of gameplay - too little i think, but just enough perhaps.

Janos, I've got a 9600XT 256mb, 512mb RAM, and 2.8ghz and I can run Chaos Theory perfectly fine (or at least I could run the beta fine, but it looked the same as the screens from gold). and when I say fine, I mean perfectly...no slowdown no matter what was happening, with setttings at default.

You should be fine I'd say...it's a great game if you can get a partner and do co-op or online team game goodness.

- KOTOR (I finished the dark side a year ago and I decide to start the light side.)
- Tropico (A nice strategy/political game.)

I'm stuck with a few myself, and most are contrary to my usual playing style.
SWAT 4 and SWAT3 (since it's apparently better than SWAT4)
Just finished Jade Empire (short but EXCELLENT story, great for kung fu movie fans)
E.V.O. (old SNES ROM, just because I heard of it on the Spore forums)
Starting Area 51.... too early to tell whether it's gonna be good or not.

Waiting on: Spore, B&W2, X3:Reunion, TES4: Oblivion, Star Wars: Empire At War

Ahh Nethack. I've been playing that thing off and on for 8 years or so. It's the only game I always come crawling back to. Make sure you visit Nethack.org and get 3.4.3, it has GRAPHICS! (well, sorta). Quite a learning curve, I still don't know what some commands are for. I usually only play as wizard, Charm spells are the best. Nothing like having an army of pets to protect you.

I almost forgot about that game, I havn't played it in months. Classic.

Currently Playing: Metal Gear Solid 3 (having a hard time with it), Brothers in Arms, Mercenaries

Recently Finished: Jade Empire, Call of Duty: United Offensive, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Psychonauts

Still Need to Play: Fable, Advance Wars

Looking Forward to In the Next 3 Months: Battlefield 2, Conker: Live and Reloaded, Nintendogs...and if they actually come out in August, which I doubt, Oblivion and F.E.A.R.

Silent Hunter III is a great game. Putting the voices on German is great and if you have a halfway decent sound system, the sound is amazing.

Right now I'm playing WoW... a lot. Mostly because I'm a huge nerd. Other than that, SHIII and the occasional foray in Garry's Mod, I've been taking small stabs at MGS 2 again in order to get warmed up for Subsistence.

My calendar is currently marked for June 17th when Destroy All Humans comes out. I think it'll be one of the better games of the year in an instant cult classic sense. Besides that, there's not a lot coming out that really sets the gaming world aflame. (I was all psyched about Imperial Glory, praying that it was Cossacks in 3D, but, as always: the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.)

Edit: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is one of my on and off projects. That game's a bigger time investment than I would've imagined. The customization of characters is glorious too.

I have recently moved house, and we still dont have broadband setup, so now that I cant play WoW, I have been looking at some other games.

I got back into HoMM4 for a bit, but now I'm playing these games on my PC:
LOTR: Battle for middle earth 2
Call of Duty 2
Galactic Civilisations 2

And these games with my flatmates on Xbox:
NHL
Fifa
Mortal Kombat


Its actually nice to have a break from WoW, I'm kind of looking forward to getting back into it, but I dont know if I'll play as much as I use too.

I know this is an old thread, but it's been bumped latelt so...

Day of Defeat: Source has been taking a lot of my time lately.
Had a brief binge with "The Movies" but that came to a grinding halt when I realized no matter what I do there is just no pleasing those spoild diva stars.

Been itching to try another MMRPG, got burned out on WoW and not much else out there looks very appealing to me, except maybe City of Villians.

Metroid Prime (still working on it)
Soul Caliber 2

I finished Super Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion a week ago, I'm not sure why I got stumped at them at one point since I just wizzed through the levels when I re-played it.

I have that with games I remember when I was a a kid I was stuck on a certain level on Donkey Kong Country 2, After a while I played other games that i rented got and finished Unirally came back gave it a try didn't even have a problem with that level I couldnt even work out what it was that was giving me so much trouble in the 1st place.

As for games occasional WoW and Mario Strikers on Wii

Well there is this one part where you have to make cookies and no matter how many times I've played it I ALWAYS mess up and it drives me nuts because it takes about ten minutes to do that segment. :-\

DOTA is horrible, I played it and I was good at it but that doesnt mean I didnt hate it. I prefere Tides of Blood much more casual and lay back instead of a bunch of kids yelling and blacklisting eachother. I think they should revive the China map where you would take over regions and build up armies...much like civil war and what not. Good times on the earlier days of B.net.

I have played it. A good friend of mine is a Dota fiend. I still hate it though, it pushes all of the good custom games out of hosting.

I suppose its the online game that has come out for not to long ago.

I was also wondering, I have been watching LittleBigPlanet for a while now, and i wondered, do you think it would work for the pc?
I think it looks so much fun, it rates very high on my list.. but since i haven't got any ps3, i won't get it. Anyone think it'll go pc also?

I saw Gears of War is making it to the pc, due to their success. Could it happen again? I sure hope so.. It would be great for the developers, just imagine having a internet game on the computer. or lans, i dunno. I just want it so badly. But not badly enough to buy a ps3.

I just played the World in Crisis Demo, which I liked, except it kept glitching up on me so I couldn't see where the cursor was. So I was unable to finish the demo. It was pretty cool anyway, you can destroy ANYTHING (buildings, street lights, etc.) It's like an RTS without resource gathering, instead you get 'airdrops' of new vehicles and stuff, which you have a set amount. I don't know if I'll try the full game when it comes out.

The storyline is that the soviet union attacks the U.S., starting at Seattle, which I thought was cool since I live in the Washington. Anyway I guess I better try this "Oblivion" every seems to be playing.

I remember i used a commodore 64-ish joystick to play it.

Right now i am playing Bioshock, I bought a limited edition box thing. it had a miniature Big Daddy in it. I laughed when i  saw that the game says i must be 18 to play the game. why would 18 year old people play with action figures? :D The game is fun, i guess. but not extremely fun. It's not something i would play forever, like say.... Oblivion? Hell... i would invent a forgetting machine to foget how oblivion was to want to play it again! right now i seem to have played it to the bone....

Also playing some Wii Sports and Harvest Moon 2 (my sister's choice, not mine).

Then I have plans to purchase and beat MP2 before I can get my hands on MP3 or my friend will disown me. :-\

KOTOR (the original) was just fantastic. I haven't played the second one yet, I heard that the ending was sucky (they ran out of time I have heard from various people) and that doesn't sound good to me.

well i would most certainly agree with you that the original KOTOR was pretty awesome! and yeah, the ending was sucky (left me staring at the screen with my head tilted saying: "wtf?") but! the storyline makes sense after playing it a couple (4+) times through. the greatest feature in KOTOR 2 is turning your followers to either sith or jedi :) and you get your own crystal if you find out where to get it. i would suggest playing KOTOR 2 if you have played the original, but just dont get yourself hyped up for the ending.



As for what i am playing right now:

I've been playing games a lot lately. I get to play my PSP at works sometimes, but I usually only play emulators on that because I'm not that interested in many PSP games. So I play Shining Force II at the moment, just finished up Lemmings. On my PS3 I'm really into Dragon Quest VIII right now (didn't have a PS2 so I never got to play it, it looks really good for an old gen game), and I just got the Simpsons Game. I also have PixelJunk Monsters which is fun to play with the Wife. We played the Playstation Eye game 'blurbs' or something which is really interesting experience to be playing with your hands. All killing time before GTA IV which will probably take most of my free time for a while. Any way, I thought I'd ressurect this topic after 120+ days of inactivity.

Well. i played through the main quest (and the main quest only, not meddeling with the side quests too much)fairly quickly.
now that i finished it, i can fully agree it is repetitive.

it's definitively a game i won't go back to play again, i played it because i wanted to find out what happened storyline-wise. i must say, i got kinda disappointed in the end.

Well there's your problem right there.

If you only do the main storyline as quick as you can, it is very repetitive. But if you take a break from the grind and fight some guards or just run around stabbing people, it's actually very entertaining for a long time. When you go back in, after you finish the main mission, it's not very fun though. Mainly because it's exceedingly difficult to get into a big fight with like 10 guards

And I am going to buy a Star Wars pack within a few days, which includes the following games: Empire at war, battlefront 2, jedi academy, Galaxies (meh) and republic commando ('sigh', why did I have to download it just 1 month ago, ah well. Atleast I'm making it up with the devs :P)

I'm probably nitpicking, but if you're talking about the pack I think you're talking about, the same pack I have, namely 'Star Wars: The Best of PC', then it's 'Battlefront 1' instead of 2, and you forgot 'Knights of the Old Republic'.

And I bought the pack because I downloaded Republic Commando earlier and I liked it so much that I was willing to shell out the € 20 it costs. :)

Just picked up the Metal Gear Solid Essentials Pack.  MSG1 however will not recognize my memory card so, MGS2 it is.

Just in case you don't know, for MGS1 you must have a PS1 memory card in order to save a PS2 one wont work. Theres been a lot of complaints about that actually.

Not much besides GTAIV at the moment..

But I've also been playing Final Fantasy XII and X3: Renunion, which just seems to be big, open, slow, and has nothing to do in it.  Maybe I'm missing something, but I just can't get my head around it.  Even Morrowind and Daggerfall gave you something, before pushing you out into such a open world.

Right now I'm playing Puzzle Quest (nearly done!), Final Fantasy (still!), Legend of the Seven Stars (again!), and Team Fortress 2.

I finally got back into TF2, although my bad luck is still there. I'll finish the round in the top five but I swear I get more critical hits than anyone else. I'm thinking that Half-Life 2: Episode 2 is up next on the list.

You're going to have fun!

Let's see... jogging my memory... I've got...

Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.13 GHz
2 gigs of RAM
GeForce 8800 GTS

That's all that really matters, I've got a couple hard drives in it and some other doodads. I'm running Vista Ultimate, the 64 bit flavor, and it's the best system I've ever had. Everything is balanced very nicely so that it all runs at peak performance and I paid less than 700 dollars for it all. I may slip another video card or some RAM into the setup at some point but I still haven't hit any games that I can't run at full yet so there's no reason to spend the money.

Most of the time those problems are not with Vista. People say it is Vista though because they don't want to take the time to call customer service or learn about the equipment they are using, they just want to complain.

The thing is just because you may not have had problems with vista does not mean its that way for everyone. Vistas bad reputation was not just born out of farts and and belches of rainbow kittens.

Whats more not everybody who has problems with vista are senile senior citizens and Amish folk who aren't tech savvy in the slightest.

Nothing against you Pat but i find it funny how people have owned many computers over the years some owning multiple computers at one time and then they get this new computer with vista and out of the blue has dump trucks full of problems but..but..but..no it couldn't be the new buggy OS everybody complains about!. They just don't know how to dial tech support  ::).

Oh whoops gotta go. Gotta saddle up my horse and buggy dawn my hat and comb my long beard. I am going out with the other vista haters at the ye old tavern tonight  :P.

Please do not put words in my mouth. I've had problems with Vista and many more with XP but I've been able to fix them with help from various sources.

It's the truth, people are blaming far more issues on Vista than the OS is actually responsible for. Most of the problems (at least for gamers) are caused by them either not having the proper hardware or having the wrong drivers for said hardware. The majority of the rest are the same problems that we've been struggling with since Windows 95 dropped. Of course Vista shipped with issues but so did every other OS. The real conflict came about with hardware compliance and while it was not the best idea, in the long run it will do a lot to progress the computer industry as a whole. If you want to avoid most common problems with Vista or any other OS you've just got to pay attention. It's no different than the approach you should be taking with any other venture.

But you are right on one point, I can't minimize that my knowledge of computers has helped me deal with the more serious issues. Still, that isn't stuff I can recall on the fly. I don't know all that much about computers, I just know how to use Google properly. :P
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Gorman Conall on June 25, 2008, 05:28:10 pm
Hehe i would die without Google. Thats how i fixed most of my problems when it comes to vista.

I bet XP did have as many problems as vista when if launched if not more. I haven't experienced any personally likely because i got it late in XPs life. Now windows ME on the other hand..i could tell you horror story's about.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Cobra on June 25, 2008, 05:39:26 pm
I have had many problems and best I can determine they are Vista related. Wel i say any but it's one problem and thats i can't iunstall any games I have mentioned how WoW would crash my PC every 5 mins. At 1st i thought it might be that my Video Card wasn't good enough which would have been understandable as I haven't got much in the video card department.

Turns out after some researh i met all the recommended requirements to play WoW so it wasn't my weak card. Of course then when I get the same problems trying to play Audio Surf/Phun with Physics and even Dwarf Fortress it leaves me to conclude Vista is the Devils works.

I'm planning on getting a new Laptop soon for when I move out I'm considaring seeing if i can pick one up with XP still on ot at least just format what ever i do get and load XP on to the Laptop. I know it will work better with anything i run plus it wont hog as much of the resources to begin with.

No way... the characters are annoying as anything and the plot is held together with paperclips and a coat hanger. You're better off playing Myst or Deus Ex.

Post by: PatMan33 on July 02, 2008, 03:12:39 pm
Yeah it's great, although FFVI is better. Besides, I like FFVII for legitimate reasons.

You hate it because its popular, I've heard you go off on it before. It's just as bad as the people that like it because so many other people like it. Leave me alone.

Post by: /lurk on July 02, 2008, 03:18:10 pm
So you like FF7, but you're criticising BG&E for things that it does much, much better than it (like having a plot, or actually being entertaining.)

ff7 was and it did have a plot...although it did get really repetitive and stale after a while

and i hate cloud...

beyond good n evil is a good game...and the plot is better...in my opinion...although a bit too obvious
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on July 02, 2008, 03:22:02 pm
I just don't like Beyond Good and Evil, just like how you just don't like most JRPGs (I think you're the one that didn't like them). I'll finish it, don't get me wrong, but it isn't what I want from an action adventure game.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?

How is Settlers 6 aka "Settlers: Rise of an Empire"?
I am thinking of getting "Settlers: Rise of an Empire" or "1701AD Gold"...
but haven't found a good head to head comparison of them.

well.. maybe it's just me, but it kinda sucks in the long run, booring after a couple of minutes.

Most of my Harvest Moon time has been split between Harvest Moon and Harvest Moon 64. Magical Melody comes in third, it's close but still not there. Everything else is waaaaay down the rating scale. A Wonderful Life was annoying as hell. I give merit to Rune Factory though, that game would probably be fourth. Hopefully Island of Happiness is decent.

Yeah most peoples favorites are Harvest moon and Harvest moon 64. I never got the chance to play those  :(.

I was just curious mostly because i rarely meet a harvest moon fan outside forums decated to them. Every body else is appalled that i can enjoy a game like that and its almost impossible to explain to them why its fun  :D.

Well if Darkfall lives up to expectations you will be able to be a farmer in it.

If you like stuff like that you might want to try Guilds 2 also

Despite its flaws, you might like Star Wars Galaxies then. Seeing how you can level up from 1 to 90 without even touching an enemy. Try the trial, start out as an entertainer and get to learn the game, it's great, atleast, the non-combat part. Combat however... :(

I too, am still waiting for a game where you can level without even touching quests and enemies and still have fun and earn your money, SWG was the closest thing I could find :(

Post by: Glacies on November 11, 2008, 04:54:48 am
So, two days ago I dug up an old rpg I had never played before in the back reaches of my games shelf called "Vampire: The masquerade: Redemption." It's about vampires (There's a shocker!) and a paladin guy turned into a vampire whining about:

A) How he wants to have sex with a nun.
B) But it would damn him.
C) And he's already damned by being a vampire.
D) So no loss, right?
E) Wait, she's been kidnapped by mage/slavers.
F) Oh well.

It's set in the white wolf brand world of darkness and bad peopleTM and revolves around the party of 1 to 4 murdering entire bunches of really, really stupid monsters. They'll let you slowly walk your way intoa room, aggravate one of them, and walk back drawing one monster away from the herd for you to use the awe power on and then suck dry. And sucking all the blood out of someone is always fatal, and yet the party will never do it without carefull babysitting. Moreover, there's no bonus for diablerizing somebody (In the WoDaBP drinking all the blood of another vampire gives you the powers they had, or something like that..) nor a loss of humanity, so it's all good. Just don't drain townsfolk or watchmen dry, or kill them. Everyone else is fair game. The combat is exceedingly random (Think dwarf fortress random) in that one hit can instantly decapitate the uber armored knights or fail to kill a single little ghoul spider for up to ten minutes of bored clicking. The same vulnerability goes for your party, so you'll be doing fine and then suddenly die horribly. Oh, and when you decapitate the Teutonic knights, the head flies about ten feet and bounces three times. Then they shout "Who goes there?!" I'm having a ton of fun with it. [/endrant]

I wish I had a computer that could run Fallout 3 and...well, a copy of Fallout 3.

I get a very similar error message when I try to start the game (Mine says RMN40). apparently getting Service Pack 3 helps sometimes, which is what I was trying to do this arvo. I agree about the social club and windows live bulls***, This has got to be the most painful installation I've ever gone through.

Post by: PatMan33 on December 03, 2008, 07:14:03 am
Mine starts fine but they did a piss poor job at optimizing the game. Even worse, they don't even allow you to put the settings higher than whatever their algorithm decides your computer can run. And to top it all off, the start up commands don't work in the Steam version so you can't disable the locks on graphical settings.

Real men play Pokemon Pearl.

Tell me, is it worth a look? I've often heard that if you've played one Pokemon game, you've played them all.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: /lurk on January 19, 2009, 10:48:21 am
Depends. If you just want to play an RPG, there are better ones out there. Some people just beat the Elite Four and put it away, and it really isn't all that satisfying if you do that.

But if you've got a stomach for statgrinding, there's hundreds* of hours of gameplay in that cart - filling up your pokedex really is fulfilling, even though you'll probably never finish it. If you can find a group of equally determined people, it metamorphosises into a massive, complex strategy game.

So personally I'd say yes, but mostly because I want more people to battle over wifi. If you are interested, I'd suggest waiting for Platinum to come out, since that's got more stuff than the basic Diamond/Pearl.



*I've played about 400 hours so far.

Depends, The story and Voice acting is fantastic. The combat is also pretty good...the thing is..there is not much of it. The game is 75% story 25% gameplay.

The story is interactive though, You choose just about every reply to every conversation.

Its got an interesting charcter development system. You earn mini achievements in the game and you can dedicate them to one of 4 patron gods for aspect points with that god. Also most dialogue choices favors one of the gods so you get more exp that way to.

If you want a great movie game or if your a fan of Greek mythology then you should pick it up.

Anyway, I'm playing, in order of play time...

Pokemon Silver. OH. MY. GOSH. I love this game. I haven't played it since I was nine or something. But I found it, and my old gameboy, and just HAD to start a new game. This move has seriously made me cut back on doing anything else. Ever.

Guitar hero World Tour. Not much to say about it. Just been trying to beat all of the "story modes" if you can call it that. But mainly only because I like watching the cut scenes.  :P

Call of Duty 5. It's actually my father's game, but I've been looking into it. Purty fun.


And that's it.

I noticed steam downloading an update to GTA IV, so today I decided to give this piece of %#@$ a 9th chance, and sure enough, now we are back to square one with stupid error messages, this time I got the message that I needed to update my XP to service pack 3 ......... but since Im using Vista I find it very hard to accomodate the sharp heads at rockstar studios, so yet again I have spend time trying to get this awfull excuse of a game to play, to absolutely no avail, that was the third patch, and things just get worse and worse, Rockstar have managed to dwarf Peter Molyneux when it comes to buggy releases, I have never been left so unsatisfied by a game, three freaking patches, three .... and now it doesnt even work anymore ...

Sorry, missed this thread. About Darkfall; it needs a lot of work, but it is the BEST DAMN MMO EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD! Seriously, it is great. New sales this monday I have heard. If you like their base ideas of full loot and no safe zones, then you must try this out. I play Mahirim, name is Huck Bucklord. I would give it so far about 8.9/10 in its current state (my opinion is biased though) and 10/10 in potential.  :)

Yes, as long as you accept it for what it is and realise what gameplay aspects and community aspects come with the game rules it is a lot of fun. Play in group is almost a must though, it is not so fun to play alone from what I have experienced as of yet.

What's wrong with torrents? It'll go at least as fast as the old way, since one of the seeds for all addons is garrysmod.org itself, as Garry explained on his blog (http://www.garry.tv/?p=1091).
There's nothing inherently wrong with downloading through torrents.

How do you add custom content?  I downloaded the Super Mario Galaxy Ragdoll Pack, but don't know how to add it.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Yannick on September 21, 2009, 01:54:42 pm
It usually goes in the addon pack if it has an.. erm... .info file, and else it goes in the garrysmod folder itself.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Kenobro on September 21, 2009, 02:10:12 pm

Do I make a new folder in the addon folder, or do I just paste the folders it came with?  Because I made a new folder, named it SuperMarioGalaxy, and pasted the things it came with in their.

http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=46451

This is what I downloaded.

No you just unpack the crap they give you in the addon folder. It works for me.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Didero on September 22, 2009, 12:34:26 am
You should extract the contents of the zipfile to 'Steam/steamapps/[username]/garrysmod/garrysmod/', replacing the '[username]' part with your Steam username. It'll warn you that there already is a folder called 'addons', but you can just click 'Yes', because nothing will be overwritten. It'll also warn about the 'settings' and 'spawnlist' folders if you didn't click 'Yes to All', but you can click 'Yes' on those warnings too. Be sure to delete the 'SuperMarioGalaxy' folder you made before though, so you don't confuse Gmod.
It should work then :)

No the whole game is actually real time, But when something new happens like an enemy gets spotted or such the game pauses to let me modify my troops actions. I can also pause and unpause whenever i feel like by hitting space bar.

Once i modify my plans the game unpauses and runs in real time until i pause it again or something else unexpected happens.

That depends.

You need to go offline and set the mode to whatever you plan on playing online (like judo), And learn to punch kick etc in it, Then come up with some opening moves.

You cant really counter people online if you have no idea how to move your arms or legs where you want them to go.

Stopped playing Sins Of A Solar Empire ($10).. too much of a time sink and the AI isn't all that bright.

Picked up from the cheap bin:
Ford Racing 3 - $4 - Simple racer, but a mellow time waster.
RACE'07:WTCC - $4 - A very nice racer based on the World Tour Cars races. The arcade to realism slider being extremely long and highly details allowing for 'just have fun' to 'throttle wrong and die'. The details are wild right down to bug splatters on your helmet visor.

I also found a Hard Truck MadMaxish game as well ($2) but I won't have a chance to tinker with it for a couple days.

The Beatles Rockband is also using up my time. :)

Saying the word Ninja at all other than to talk about an actual Ninja in history is worse than getting ninja'd.

What's so bad about replaying it, though?  It's not a bad game, it just didn't live up to the hype.  But really, the Citizen Kane of games wouldn't have lived up to the hype.  The Second Coming(excuse the religious comparison) wouldn't have lived up to the hype.

Well, of course! And this is coming for a long time Oblivion player. When I first played the game I got bored out of my mind and didn't look back (Though I did like it, just wasn't my taste). Then, when we moved to egypt and my computer with oblivion on it got shipped, I decided to give it a chance.

I fell in love with it! After you get used to the lame combat system you'll find that the game is more immersive and as much fun as Oblivion is.

Picked up Combat Wings:Battle of Britian off of Steam for $5. That is about all it is worth. Best way to discribe it is Freelancer combat with WWII fighters. Cute and fun. A nice time waster. $5 is asking about all it is worth.

Bought Eufloria after playing the original demo. For $15 I thik I'll get my time out of it.

Gonna go play Spore so my son can watch (he broke his arm and has a major case of cabin fever already)

Eufloria - ($15) So far pretty much the same as Dyson. Granted I only play every couple days. The music isn't any better.

18 Wheels of Steel American Long Haul - (steam $10) I enjoyed earlier versions of this game as a numb time waster. However this has done nothing to help game play. I left Minneapolis accidentally running a stop light and ended up with a $4000 ticket in Grand Forks.... it isn't even the same flipping state! The fatigue model also sucks, and cops have some mystical way of telling you are over your hours of service (reality says only a DOT officer can even look at your log book). I give the game a 4 out of 10 so far (and only after hacking the config file to turn off the cops) and that is being nice.

Hard Truck Apocalypse - ($2) ... um.. so bad its good. An absolutely simple 'trucking adventure game' with a simple plot and missions with mediocre AI at best. But there is just something about roaring sixteen 12.7mm machines guns (Russian made game) in to targets that keeps me coming back.I've got $20 worth of play out of this $2 game.

Hmm... Gate is a good idea, but I would reccomend Temple of Elemental Evil first.  It runs on one disk instead of five, it has a much more detailed karma system, it lets you create your entire starting party instead of just one character, and it's turn-based (making it much easier to control six people at once).  If you have yet to play BG, play Temple first.

Playin myself some moar Dungeon Fighter Online...

Trying out a few demos on steam, I need to go back and finish creed 1 at some point.

Don't you hate it when the "demo version" of a game has a level cap and doesn't tell you?  First happened to me in my City of Villains trial, got up to 14 and turned in an entire two levels worth of quests before realizing that it wasn't giving me any XP for them.  Happened to me again today with the Torchlight demo, only I caught myself after turning in the first quest on my list.

Anyone know if buying it would give me that XP back?

Doesn't really matter the amount of XP you acquire from quests is vastly insignificant to the monotonous grinding of the countless mobs in the dungeons

Oh don't get me wrong I like RPGs, but they should have some flow to them. So far Mass Effect is start-stop-start-stop and Morrowind appears to be an unguided grind (I probably just missed an NPC that is important somewhere).

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: dndfreak on January 22, 2010, 08:18:12 am
Oh no, Morrowind is pretty much sandbox as far as I could tell.  Like an MMO without the second M and the O.  Or maybe I just got bored of it too quickly.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Snork on January 22, 2010, 08:27:34 am
Morrowind is primarily exploration based; The Best moments I had in that game were exploring. That's actually why I like the vanilla game so much. Combat is boring and painful  (ba dum tish) yes, but you'll get the hang of it eventually.

But you need patience for it though. It's a slow game at the start. If you aren't willing to go through the rocky beginning just because it involves missing and lots of walking, you might as well give up on it. Also, have you read or journal yet? Or talking to any NPC's? (You can Adjust the dialogue boxes if the text is too tiny for you)

As for Gorman, I'm aware your main problem with both games is mainly combat: Have you tired playing a mage in Morrowind? It's hard yes, but imo, it's much more fun than regular combat. As for Mass Effect, well I have no idea how to help you here since I've never played it myself.

Otherwise, most RPG's aren't cut out for you guys. Believe it or not, Morrowind is a rather simplistic RPG in comparison to games such as Planescape: Torment and Fallout. Though then there are RPG's like Oblivian..
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Gorman Conall on January 22, 2010, 08:51:22 am
Oh no I am a big RPG player and always have been, in recent years I do tend to lean toward RPGs that feature real time combat however. Turn based just does not cut it anymore which is one of the key reasons I cant play most MMOs. However morrowinds combat is just horribly boring. Mass effects feels like a good book with tacked on RPG and shooter elements.

I like Dragon age a lot, as well as all three fallouts and much more. And I love grid based RPGs like final fantasy tactics to death. Mass effect and Morrowin just don't click with me. It in no way shows that RPGS aren't cut out for me as I have played them for as long as I havehad something to play games on.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Snork on January 22, 2010, 08:59:05 am
Sorry, I didn't mean any offense.

I can see what you mean though; As much as I love the game, Morrowind's combat is dreadful. IMO, Oblivion's combat wasn't much better (It had it's own flaws too), but I had fun with Fallout 3. However, If your still interested in either game, you shouldn't let one poor aspect of the game-play stop you. Just my advice.

Anyway, time to get back on topic.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Uroboros on January 22, 2010, 09:02:52 am
And yet Dragon Age is stop-start with walls of text and combat that also boils down to MMO-style ground-circles stabbing each other repeatedly, and occasionally using talents. I know what you mean though, but most RPGs actually fall into the wall-of-text stop-startian grindcombat slot. Meh, still, everyone to their own I guess. It just reminded me of when I complained that some games were only about building walls of units and hurling them at enemy bases until they eventually crumbled. Rather than fine strategy, it was about speed, familiarity and rock-paper-scissors reaction. Thats about the point I realised I just didn't like 90% of RTS games. :P

Comparing Dragon Age to an MMO should be a crime >_>

Though you are partially correct the combat..at first glace is similar. However in any MMO I can just click any average enemy, walk away from my computer come back and have won. Dragon age will hand you your ass if you don't tactical pause and utilize tactics and strategy. Every battle in Dragon age is engaging and you have a plethora of tactics at your disposal and strategy's you can use.

Not to mention that the combat is actually fun to watch, from freezing an enemy and then shattering him. To shield bashing an enemy to the ground, catching one in a bear trap or the super awesome critical kills. It looks real without losing any depth to it. I remember when I first started as a mage and the combat had already impressed me, then not to far along a small dinosaur pounced on my characters face and killed him..I nearly fell out of chair.

It's funny I have 250+ Steam games and the only one I usually play is Left 4 Dead 2, maybe I should start playing Penumbra or Mass Effect since I haven't tried either yet, I'd keep playing Dragon Age Origins if the game didn't decide to crash on the exact same place all the time and I have to finish that quest to continue...

I'm currently playin

Hearts of Iron 2 - Playing as Norway is good fun, until the Germans arrive...
Quake 3
Stalker SoC
Battlefield Bad Company 2 beta - It's an unbelievably atmospheric game, fun too.
A New Zero - some indie game that is hilarious fun, you should totally check it out. (http://www.crypticsea.com/anewzero/) We should make a server and play together sometime.
Finished Mass Effect 2, felt like an expansion pack, not a new game.
And some Silent Hunter 3 - good fun.

I remember playing that game back in beta, it was freakin amazing.  I had a lvl 26 pyro/necro, then the server wipe hit when it went live and I didn't even have a paypal account at the time, just kinda lost interest.  Maybe I'll check it out again, now that I have the funds.

Anyways, until then I'll keep playing Dungeon Fighter Online.  Just made a new summoner and I want to test out how it plays in PvP.

I just have to say something about AvP controls.

The controls are perfect for the alien.
If you find it sluggish or broken, you're doing it wrong, sometimes there's like two marines shooting at me from different angles, in two seconds I'm out of there.
You just have to sprint the hell out and make as many turns as possible to find a place to recuperate and get your bearings so you can catch them off guard.

It's hilarious to find a marine standing piss-scared up against a wall in a corner looking around frantically for anything that moves. I just crawl slowly down the wall he is backed up against, sit down next to him and tap R to hiss.

Then I bite his face off.

I always smile when I perform a "backstab" move where the marine stares at you with a brick****ting stare, I can't help but smile as if I'm smiling at the player I just killed.

Yeah veraal, i'm glad you're enjoying the demo as well. This game is Badass To The Max!

I had a killstreak of 11 a few matches ago. It almost gave me a hard wiener   ;)

The alien feels so great to play. I haven't played any other races yet but never change a winning team  ;)


EDIT: Just played the marine, and i must say it totally rocks too. Rebellion pulled this off really freakin' fantastic. ;D

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Veraal on February 05, 2010, 09:52:07 am
Yeah, no **** munch. I get disconnected from the server after at least ten minutes, it's something about the router and most battlefield games that don't mix.

And the lag, yeah. Pretty horrible.

Also, Xeno, have you played as a Predator?
That **** makes no sense. It's just so awkward and stiff.

Marine is like being a real human being, I like how you're not inhumanly fast or strong considering the weight you're carrying.
Movement as an Alien feels like being a ****ing river or something, that's how smooth it goes.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Gorman Conall on February 05, 2010, 02:45:31 pm
Predators actually my favorite one to play. It makes me feel like I'm the hunter and everyone else is running from me :D. Surprisingly I enjoy all three species, this looks to be a great multiplayer game.

Just got sucked back in to Eve Online. I've been exploring for wormholes, found one last night and got sucked through. I then looked around a really nice empty system just ripe for the picking. Warped back to the wormhole as it closed...

LOST IN SPACE!

Took well over an hour to find a new wormhole, re-entered known space 40 jumped from where I left. Made it 4 before getting podded. Seems the locals didn't care much for my finding a back door in to their sector of space.

Anymore if a company is not large enough to line a reviewers pockets they get a shabby score. That said I actually am forcing myself to stop playing it.

Considering the game has no levels nor experience points I am not what you mean. I like it because its an MMO in the actual sense of the word and not what you normally would associate with the genre.

Post by: Uroboros on February 10, 2010, 10:58:43 am
Costs, skill training times (online and off, one character per account training at any one time), the PvP ethics with hardline business/piracy/etc and humongous pre-established uber-rich over-equipped groups, huge griefing potential as the side-effect of huge freedom of interaction. Its likely that you can only stay solo/smalltime for so long, then you're just a sitting meal for organised piracy unless you let yourself get sucked into a larger group, and ultimately sacrifice some of your freedom to some virtual company rules. It might be quite a dynamic MMO given the group interactions and classless system, but it is still an MMO all the same.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Legodragonxp on February 10, 2010, 03:56:42 pm
Eve changed the probing system a while back and now I cruise the systems looking for hidden objects. I've been driving through a lot of wormholes just for fun.

I made the mistake when I started of jumping in on a large corp/alliance operation and found myself bored with a 'second job'. Now I just do what I want. Combat, sure. Explore, sure. Mine or haul cargo, sure.

The problem with Eve is that it has an insane learning curve, a ruthless PVP environment, and you always feel like you're going to die. But once you get over that, its actually a fun game and if you can get in to a good corp you can find a lot of fun people to hang out with.

If you are new to the game, play the tutorial missions! They will give you a taste of what is going on in the game. Once you have finished them, take your ship and set a course for out in the middle of 0.0 space (like system 373z-7). Yes, you will probably die. Get yourself killed right off the bat to know how it works and what it feels like. If you get podded, big deal, you're new and don't have any implants (plus it is worth hearing the computer scold you for dying). You'll get a new starter ship and be right back at the base you started at. Now go play the game normally.

I know people that go and die repeatedly right off the bat just to see how far the can go. Sometimes people will start a conversation with, offer help, etc... not everybody in the game is a back stabbing ganker.(maybe 30%)

http://evemap.battleclinic.com/   <--- ever wonder what the game universe looked like outside of the game... go here. If you have a modern computer, after starting the map program, click on view and enable the full graphics. (you will need to close the program and restart it.

It doesn't really seem that hard at all, at least a couple days into it.  I honestly don't see what's so complicated about it.

In all honesty, it feels about as complicated as Runescape was.  Pretty much click and wait combat, tons of individually trained skills, and a huge focus on economy with multi-tiered gathering processes.

One of my personal all time favorites, just for the multiplayer.  The best part is that you actually earn the game's currency from multiplayer games, so bring the thing to a nerd party and you'll be able to upgrade pretty much everything to the maximum stats.  I know I did :P

As of now, BC2 whenever I get the itch, finishing up yet another playthrough of ME2 (douche rocket renegade this time), and a bit of League of Legends with my brother.

Humor note: The new Eve patch just came on-line. They screwed up the group security settings for everybody. If you fly to a friendly space staion (POS) you will be gunned down as an intruder. For those that play WoW, this would be like walking in to the auction house in Ironforge and seeing all the town guards killing all the alliance players.

So yeah. I like Pocket Frogs on the App Store, though, so I don't know.

I am currently playing the first Ratchet and Clank game. Never played the series before and saw it for five bucks. Some of the enemies in that game are kind of hellish. Like those man-eating frog things. Weird, and annoying.

Post by: eropS on March 17, 2012, 07:29:59 pm
Seriously?

You should get an asian friend or two, they will help you with that.

At least, that's how I think I got so good. SSBB and MvC3 were a large part of my senior year in highschool/freshman college so I think I am pretty good.

But REAL TALK:
H/Heavy = circle/B
M/Medium = triangle/Y
L/Light = square/X
S/Special = X/A

What teams are you trying?

Amateratsu is a good beginner character since: forwardH(ie, running towards them and hitting Circle/B) + H + H + H + H + H + S + jump + M + M + H + S is a very easy, like, stupidly easy, combo that does a shocking amount of damage. Or if you are more advanced or wanting a bigger punch and have 3 super meter ready, you can just forwardH combo and instead of using the Special, just use his level 3 hyper and it will auto hit them and deal significant damage if you can time it AS SOON AS THE LAST COMBO OF HEAVY ATTACKS ENDS. Another fun thing, his backHyper slows time, good for when you are playing against someone who is better at comboing than you since during slowed time, combos usually will be interrupted if they try to start one.

Hulk is also a great beginner character. His Heavy attack has super armor and thus can usually never be interrupted (even if he is hit mid swing) thus if you can connect an easy to his H you can   H + S + jump + M + M + H + S + land on ground + GAMMA TSUNAMI for another shockingly large amount of dmg. If they are ranged and wont let you approach, airSpecial is an overhead AND it knocks them to the ground. So instead of starting with H, you can airSpecial + land + S + jump + M + M + H + S + land on ground + GAMMA TSUNAMI

Finally: Sentinal. **** yeah. This guy. MMmmmm. Heavy = laser attack, Duck heavy = low laser attack. If they aren't jumping, spam that ****. The trick is to alternate Heavy, downHeavy, Heavy, downHeavy (since if they block or it connects, it cancels and you can IMMEDIATELY followup, so spam that button if you see they aren't going to dodge it). They will not be able to move and will just take a crap ton of chip dmg. However, if they jump towards you, then you can usually jump + special and combo, or just Special and combo haha, but your lasers will only hurt you if they dodge it since the cooldown off it sucks if it doesnt hit/get blocked.
His downMedium also has super armor.
So if you can get in training and in a corner try downMedium + S + jump + M + M + H + S + land + RocketPunch(light) + Overload/ForwardHyper + RocketPunch(medium) + S + M + M + H + AirHyper (at least i think this is how it works, my roomie took PS3 for Spring break so I can't test to make sure...)


Note: Alot of combos in air usually consist of MMHS or LMMHS if you have a faster character.

Is there a quick recover like in blazblue


other than that I'm getting the hang of a few characters

The triple hypers I just hold R1/L1 (RB/LB), the longer I hold, the more allies that use their special. AFAIK the special they use is determined by the assist. (Though unless you're at like, an arcade and want to do something flashy, you should never do these since they suck in tandem more often than not).

Now, if you mean having multiple team mates hyper in the same go (ie, Hulk does Gamma Tsunami, then Sentinal switches in and does Overload, then Akuma switches in for kamehameha) you just have to input the hyper you want and do it while they're ending (or starting) their hyper.

Example, as Hulk does Gamma Tsunami, you can tag in Sentinel RIGHT as Hulk grabs the ground, thus canceling Hulks special and starting Sents (which special depends on which input you used). Or, you can have Hulk go through with Gamma Tsunami and as he does his little ending animation, you can hyper input and tag in a Sent hyper that way.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'how' you do delays, they're a timing thing in this game. IDK, practice I suppose will teach you when you need to delay a hit to get the OTG or combo.

Cancels are done by doing another move as you're in the process of using a move. The Sentinel Heavy is a move that is a great example on how to cancel. As far as I am aware, you can only cancel if you hit/get blocked, if you miss, you cannot cancel into another move. Again, only certain characters/moves do this so it's up to you to learn which ones you can cancel out of.
(Go to practice and do Heavy+downHeavy repeatedly with Sent, then have them jump and try to get the one two to learn get an idea of how canceling works) (Miss a few times with the regular Heavy then try to follow up with a downHeavy and see how much slower it goes since it didn't cancel)

Aerial counters are tricky in that you can never truly time it and it's more just lucky timing and preparedness. Hold down and tap X(A) like a mad man and hope that you hit X on the exact moment the screen freezes suddenly. It's a pure gamble but if you are being air combo'd it is good to hold Down and tap X always, just in case they do decide to tag in combo (increasing your odds of stopping it greatly if you're already doing it, the odds of getting the right moment are better since you dont need a real reaction time).

No quick recover that I am aware of.

Do not buy or pirate Anno 2027 unless Ubisoft removes their terrible DRM. You're doing a disservice to your fellow gamers if you buy and support things such as that.

And if you pirate it, of course, you're just stabbing yourself in the back. Shooting yourself in the foot. DRMing yourself.

Okay. If anyone does not want to read this, don't.

Okay so I have dial-up. Yes, I can get hi-speed, but I am turned off by the whole two year contract thing and don't really want to get stuck in that. I purchased Portal 2 from my local retailer knowing that it required Steam and willing to pay the bill for the three hours to download steam. I assumed that I wouldn't have to download it because it CAME ON A F**ING DISK WHICH IS USED FOR STORING DATA, AND, IN MANY CASES, GAMES. But no. I instead was required to download the game and the disk apparently only had the installer for steam on it. Gamestop has a if-it's-open-you-can-not-return-it-ever policy so I am now stuck with a $40 dolla coaster unless I someday purchase a PS3 or XBOX360, which do not require internet to activiate the game, as far as I know.

There. You asked for the rant.

I heard that some Terraria mods could actually get you Steam banned. Not sure if it's true or not, but still...figured I'd say something  :-\

Anyway, I've been playing a lot of a neat little Indie sci-fi game called Evochron Mercenary, available on Steam. You play as, as the title would imply, a mercenary. Either a hard-core mercenary mercenary, a space racer, a combat pilot, or a miner/trader. It's quite entertaining, with the plus side of being able to screw around with Newtonian physics.

I'm trying out Aion since it went free to play recently.
It's alright, very much like WoW but not quite as exciting as Rift. Rift always had you involved in something, and you could join in on events and group with people on the fly with no hassle.
Aion is more the old style. It feels a little more appealing than WoW did though. Never really understood why they didn't expand their character creation process...
I often describe Rift as WoW 2.0, but I'd describe Aion as WoW 1.3, if that makes sense.
I heard they updated Rift recently though and full-retard casualized everything.

All this old-fashioned wankery does though is make me want Guild Wars 2 more and more.

Maybe I'll go try Tera a little. EDIT: Whoops. Few days too late for that. Oh well.
Oh, yeah. I don't know why but EVERYONE on Aion chat is always bitching about Tera.

Still in EVE but thinking about taking a break since the last patch screwed up a lot. I tried to play X3 but not sure it is really a decent replacement to EVE. Apples to McDonald's orange drink.

Back in to WoW because the family plays. Not really enjoying it much, but it is a 'family game night' event.

Played with the Portal kit, but my creations keep hitting limitations of the interface.

If I leave EVE I might go back to building planes in X-Plane.

I've got probably a good 80 hours into the game now, still not even close to the end (and then theres new game+ and the bonus dungeon with the bonus boss to fight)

the main quest will take you about 10 hours if you rush straight through them but your more than likely going to get sidetracked by other stuff, since some quests will have a timer (saving your childhood friend who runs off into the woods and will invariably come back to haunt you later on if you skip over it, or saving a rare item merchant from false persecution, or finding a magical tome for a wizard who if you do will come save your butt during a hard boss fight)

the lack of fast travel is probably my favorite part, the world actually tries to make you explore the world finding shortcuts and faster ways to reach further destinations (which generally have more powerful baddies) before nightfall and you get your face stomped in by the even bigger ghoulies that come out to play. It's also nice because of the random events, bandit raids on you, monsters attacking caravans, saving people that have been captured by ogres and stuff all happen as your just minding your business trekking back to the capital.

the pawn system can get....a bit annoying and make early game very curbstompish (im only lv 32 and my allies are all max job lv 60s that have knowledge of nearly everything) but it actually does help at times, an ally that knows a gryphon better will know to strike its wings to force it to fall to the ground and then burn it to smithereens

all in all, it's fun, the boss monsters are challenging fights and its kept me from getting bored when I realize a new tactic for fighting a golem or beholder

finally beat dragons dogma and starting ng+

things I hated:
all melee classes are essentially useless even as meatshields since monsters just always go for who does the most damage which is always the mages, you get maybe 1-2 abilities at max vocation for melee classes that can do crap tons of damage but the set up times are ridiculous (warriors can 1 shot cyclops with their ultimate ability but it takes almost 45 seconds to charge)

your allies AI wont SPAM their spells if they are casters, if a monster is weak to fire, they will use their fireball once then wait about 2 minutes before using another fire type attack, they also do stupid enchants, sans darkness when fighting undead.

grappling monsters is pretty much useless as you either end up getting hit by their hitbox somehow or just get stuck in the "struggle" recovery position.

the final dungeon is almost as bad as the water temple

the big bad boss before the final dungeon drops only 1 weapon, a greatsword for warriors which is the single strongest greatsword in the game, completely throwing them into overkill territory for the final dungeon since the weapon is 3x stronger than any other weapon available at the shops at that point.

things that were awesome:

the plot twist was interesting, made me feel like a dick for not doing every single quest in the game.

fighting never got stale

there's no arrows in the knee

monsters dont scale with your level so you actually get a sense of becoming stronger as you progress through the game and become able to venture further from the capital to stronger monster infested zones

hybrid vocations like magik archer and mythic knight were a lot of fun to play, mainly because they were sorcerers that actually weren't glass cannons

people will actually be pissed off at you if you don't help them on their quests

the fact that your characters size, muscularity, weight, etc actually factor in to how much crap he can carry and how quickly he will become exhausted


yea so....going to go play ng+ for another 100+ hours bai bai

i never really listened to the pawns since I had music on most of the time, and thats kind of my point with melee classes 90% of the enemies your going to battle in the last hours of the game all need elements or fly around, it's a pain in the ass swinging your sword around hoping to smack down a wyvern. and yea grappling does work wonders but i don't like how I sometimes will randomly get smashed into thin air for no reason and almost die

Just finished a 13 hour game of Medieval II.

Played as Egypt. By the time I took Constantinople and won, the empire held the entire southern half of the map and a good bit of Northern France and England. They entirely encircled the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea, controlled Gibraltar, Bosphorus, as well as the Nile. Rome fell almost immediately after the failure of the first Crusade (totally tried to take Jerusalem from Egypt) and the rest of the game was spent killing Popes every few decades. The dude just won't go away. Though it got a bit easier to track the weirdo down once the Holy Roman Empire became a vassal state. Yeah... that was cool.

Really good game. Probably never gonna play Medieval II ever again.

Edit:I got it working!  It seems that when I was installing the mod I forgot to specify the root folder  I wanted the mod to install into!

What mods are you running Fallout 3 with?

I used to love this one called the Realistic Sniping mod. Totally broke the game because it make sniping work the way it should. :P

But they've got some nice rebalance mods out now as well as graphical overhauls and other good tweaks.

Installed Real Time Settler mod awhile ago,but I probably installed wrong because it caused errors when I tried to start the game,I've actually uninstalled Fallout 3 to make room for Vegas,which is million times better,better story and fewer crashes!(although, it ran sluggishly until I turned off a few things like shadows)

Eh, the retcon DLC does alot for the game I think.

New Vegas is still the better game, but I think FO3 has the better environment. It has basically all the same things as Vegas except it has the bonus of also including the DC metro area; comparatively New Vegas' environment was pretty bland, and the 'strip' is an embarrassment.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: eropS on June 20, 2013, 03:37:22 pm
I beg to differ. The mall was very well done, the trenches were fun as was the monument. They did a great job explaining away the whitehouse, and it was a nice walled off condensed version of the metro area. The Vegas strip was lifeless and had 5 buildings spread across 3 zones. It was a husk of what we were being sold as the most bumpin place in the West. At least the metropolitan area had the excuse of being dangerous.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 20, 2013, 03:41:06 pm
See I thought they were both sparse and lifeless. Washington DC was filled with samey buildings and all of the cool architecture that makes the town stand out was gone. It felt like a caricature of a city.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: eropS on June 20, 2013, 03:51:50 pm
Yeah that is what it was. I guess my problem stems from the fact I felt like it was supposed to feel lifeless, scary, and hostile. I thought it pulled that effect off well for what it was. It provided a likeness of the capital area that you were a badass survivor in. That was the pitch at the start.

New Vegas strip was empty, shallow, kind of ugly in the bad way, thus was a huge drawback for me. Hell, the town outside of Vegas has more character than the strip, yet the whole first half of the game is just trekking to this city only to finally be let in to find 4 lifeless NPCs per load screen sectioned zone that contained buildings with empty lobbies and empty rooms. **** I think Tenpenny towers had more people in it than all 3 casinos combined. It was a disappointment. The game makes the place out to be a boom town when its not fooling anybody.

Fo3 capital was received as pitched, NV wasn't and to me it made the whole experience cheaper. That bugged me a lot
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 20, 2013, 03:55:30 pm
I don't think dead and lifeless makes any sense given the frames of time in the Fallout universe and the differing factions. The biggest flaw in Fallout in my opinion is the distinct lack of life anywhere. It makes no sense that these places would be SO barren after such a long amount of time.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: eropS on June 20, 2013, 04:01:44 pm
Yeah, right? Megaton has probably 15 NPCs and its like a big town. Bethesda games in general bug me because the game talks in a scale that it doesn't reflect. Elderscrolls have the same problem, huge cities that don't even pretend to have a huge population. How are we expected to believe that thr entire region of Skyrim has even hundreds of people, let alone thousands, when we are shown so little. Bioware games do a great job of reflecting a huge population in places when appropriate, even the Witcher caught on.

At least FO3 was halfway honest in its approach, thus whem Vegas presented me with more of the same when it sold me something else, it bugged me a bit.

But yeah their games are way to small scale for the worlds they sell us.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 20, 2013, 04:10:02 pm
Definitely. The large scale of the world is undermined by the developers neglecting to understand that the best way to convey a true sense of scale is by doing lots of little things.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 21, 2013, 12:30:57 am
The funniest example of bad scale in a Bethesda game is Whiterun in Skyrim.

It has "districts", which must comprise about four houses each. Some NPCs even have some snobby dialogue about you not fitting into their 'district'.

Dude I can piss across your precious Cloud District.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 21, 2013, 07:49:07 am
Pretty sure that DRAGON THAT I KILLED WITH MY BARE HANDS is bigger than your district.

OH BY THE WAY DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BEAT ME IN COMBAT? YOU JUST WATCHED ME KILL A DRAGON, DON'T ANY OF YOU REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU'VE SEEN ME DO??

Can you guess what my other problem with these games is? I don't understand why people lose control of their bowels over Bethesda. Their games are consistently mediocre and with the sole exception of graphics have not progressed an inch since Morrowind. Furthermore they only become reasonably playable after the modding community fixes them. And they've been fixing the same problems every time a game comes out.

Oh... Morrowind needs rebalanced combat, better textures, and general tweaks to its optimization?  Okay.
Oh... Oblivion needs rebalanced combat, better textures, and general tweaks to its optimization?  Okay.
Oh... Fallout 3 needs rebalanced combat, better textures, and general tweaks to its optimization?  Okay.
Oh... New Vegas needs rebalanced combat, better textures, and general tweaks to its optimization?  Okay.

It's decent for ranged gameplay; I would rather they just bit the bullet and made it realistically lethal like the Souls games.

I find the lack of selection with swings to be as ridiculous as the fact a direct slice across someones head doesn't immediately kill them.

EDIT: At least provide the lethality as a difficulty option; More HP+DMG =/= more difficult Bethesda, its just more tedious.

I don't actually know, because the original XBox Live doesn't exist anymore. I could do some weird LAN tunneling stuff using xlink but that doesn't seem to be very stable to me so I'm not going to mess with it. However, a few of my friends also have classic XBoxes, so we did set up a LAN party with Halo 1 and that worked fine.

You never played Fable? And you're going into it without horribly high expectations?

Somehow I managed to not hear all the hype about Fable. Plus, open world RPGS are pretty common now anyway, so it's not as much of a big deal.

Populous was arguably the only good game that man ever made.

Everything else has been lies and deceit. I will never forgive him for Black & White 2. Basically the dude talks up his games and sells a great idea and then totally fails to deliver. And he has done this with just about every game he's made. Worse, his games (in the case of B&W2) are so different than what he said it would be like that it's borderline offensive.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 24, 2013, 02:42:10 pm
Let me tell you about Dungeon Keeper.

It has the same damn problem that all of his games have. They are insanely fun for about three days after you buy them, then you hit a wall and realize you can't really do all that much anymore. Then you start to think about it and realize you were never really doing all that much to begin with. Every level has you doing the same thing and it gets boring once they run out of new stuff to introduce. The game doesn't grow very much.

That's why Evil Genius is better in just about every conceivable way. At least it offers a larger game to play and when you meet certain requirements you unlock more types of play.

I've never played Syndicate so I can't fairly judge. But come on, cut me some slack here, Sam. You know I am amping up my argument because I'm passionate about my dislike for Peter Molyneux. I know full well he's made some decent games. So don't cherry pick what you are taking at face value today, ass​hole.

The fact of the matter is that Peter Molyneux is a pathological liar and regularly hypes his games in the absolute wrong way. And to make matters worse, people refuse to notice the pattern. He sits back and waits a few years for everyone to forget and then comes out with the next big lie. And that's fine, sure whatever. Not everyone has been burned like I have and I took personal offense to his behavior as a developer and as a hype man when it started costing me my time.

Black & White 2 was an abomination. Not because the gameplay lacked depth, not because the engine was buggy, and not because the story was garbage. No, the problem with Black & White 2 is that if you choose to play the good path, you get ****ed by the end of the game for doing so.

Playing the game as a good god means spending significantly more time per-level making sure everything goes right. Evil players build an army and conquer. Good players build culture and win their enemies over through attrition. Evil games last on the order of an hour or so. Good games last several hours. Three, four, five, even six hours at a clip to finish a single campaign level. And after all that work going through each and every level playing the game as a good god you get to the very end. And what do they tell you to do?

Your good adviser comes up to you and says something like: "Oh wow, this enemy looks tough! Forget the virtuous path you've been on. Build an army and destroy those jerks!!"

No sir. That is unacceptable. They lock you out of being able to play the game the way you'd been playing it up to that point. You are forced to play the game using the tactics of the side you willingly chose to forgo. That's garbage. That is **** game design and just plain insulting to anyone that put the time in to get to that point of what is not that great a game.

And that's the rub, isn't it? It's so hard to get to the end of a Molyneux game because they all become so tedious. Even the good ones like Dungeon Keeper and Populous and to a lesser extent Fable. But to then take away the style of play that helped to see you through to the end? No thanks. That's over the line and demonstrates an obscene lack of understanding about the product he's making. You can't do a bait and switch with the gameplay at the end of a game.

Do not trust Peter Molyneux. Do not buy his games. Do not listen to him. He is the worst kind of game developer.

I won't say it's a bad game because it isn't. But Evil Genius is definitely better and more engaging. It's like what Banjo-Kazooie is to Mario 64, a similar but much more refined game.

That's where I stopped playing the last time. I guess it was just a bit too overwhelming to have to rebuild your entire base, since on the first item you can do it gradually as new rooms are introduced to you.
I should try again one of these days, it's a fun game.

No way man that's where the game becomes brilliant.

It says "hey you now know enough to know you can do it better without us, so here's a new, bigger island with no restrictions.  Take what you learned and see if you can't do it better. Good luck cause it gets harder now, hope you think up a good strategy."

Isn't it strange when you start playing games just for the sake of playing them. Because you "have to" for one reason or another. I had never experienced that before.

I've been playing Star Ruler. That is a pretty nice game. I will play Skyrim and Deus Ex: HR once I am able to use my new video card and they will look pretty instead of lame.

Of course it can. You can still call Saints Row bad because of horrible mission structure, the illusion of choice, a samey world that feels very sparse at times, a nonsensical plot, underdeveloped characters, cheap game mechanics, unexplained game mechanics, overly oppressive game mechanics... I can keep going.

Saints Row is that kind of series. It's entirely mediocre from a gameplay perspective but they hit the right marks when it comes to writing and pacing. They understand (unlike... say, Rockstar or Bethesda) that a mission based game should keep throwing wild and wacky missions at you and not asking you to walk across the entire world to get to them.

Me and my buddy dug up Excite Truck from my collection about two weeks ago. It was always a fun game but I never played it seriously, and we needed something different. As it turns out, Excite Truck is off the rails fun! It's so freaking good. We demolished it.

So then I remember that Excitebots came out a few years back and I did some research and found a copy. This game... oh man... as good as Excite Truck is, Bots is better in every way. Level design is great, the races are fun and frantic, there are lots of crazy and wild stunts to do, and the soundtrack is reckless as ****.

Get these games, guys. Seriously. They are FUN!!

Septerra Core came out on Steam today. It's made by the same folks that made No One Lives Forever.

I have only played it a few times at a friend's house when I was younger but really enjoyed what I saw. And having just started the game again with almost no memory of what happens, I can say that this is definitely my kinda game. Check it out, guys! It's an RPG.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: eropS on October 15, 2013, 12:34:45 pm
Any good?

Well. It all depends on what you like out of a pokemon game.

They seriously reduced the grind, which I love. Exp Share is now bascially a toggle option (that is introduced really, really early thankfully) that ensures all your pokemon basically level at the same rate. I think it's the best thing ever since it doesn't require a held item slot, effects all pokemon equally, and makes training a breeze.

The drawback of course is that for a majority of the game you don't ever need to switch pokemon since XP is shared. This can lead to you basically rotating starters just to see what different pokemon can do rather than for necessity/training. However, that's not to say you wont need to switch ever, I have a full party of 6 and have come close to 'losing' a few times.

I did actually lose to this guy in a house who reverses all the typing rules but that was more of a user problem rather than the fight being hard.

Lets see, HMs. They exist, but only Surf is required to use (I mean I'm at the 8th gym so I can't imagine I need to use anything else from here on out, maybe in victory road?). I like this, and it follows Black and White where HMs are mainly optional in order to unlock items/short cuts.

EV training. Holy **** it's like Nintendo finally realized people hated fighting 255 of a single pokemon or obtaining specific items to increase X stat increases per fight. Instead it is now a mini game of varying difficulty (between mind-numbingly easy to mildly easy) that upon completion rewards stat points. 18 mini games, 3 per stat, 1/4/12 increases(ie, level 1 Speed grants 1 speed, level 3 speed grants 12 speed). Better yet, when you beat a game you also get a punching bag related to the stat you just increased. Using this punching bag will increase the corresponding stat accordingly (3 sizes, S/M/L 1/4/12). I fully trained my starter and charizard in like 45 minutes.

So for actual competitive play I can see a use for it, and I'm very glad it's around. Not really needed for the base game though since just killing pokemon will fill out your stats to be good enough to beat the E4 (like every other game).

Difficulty varies. Game is pokemon so it's never been hard to beat the AI. I'd say turn it to 'Set' (ie, can't switch pokemon for free after a kill) and you should have a challenging enough time you won't get bored.

The story is weak sauce.

The new pokemon are cool I guess, but there aren't a bunch. They sprinkle in every generation of pokemon in the region though so it's neat to catch a Weedle along side my Scatterbug.

Mega-evolutions are just a super power pokemon. Haven't noticed a huge game play swing when I use them and honestly to me it's a forgettable feature unless I'm in a competitive Human v Human match.

New moves and the new type keep things interesting, horde battles are rare (but I almost lost to 5 level 11 mr. mime jrs since they used copycat hahaha) and go exactly like you'd expect.

I think it's good. It's streamlined in all the right ways while still a deep RPG. A complaint I heard was 'kid-friendly'; I beg to differ I think it's just less tedious.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Tesla on October 15, 2013, 02:34:07 pm
While I agree for the most part, I might add that non-surf HMs kind of are necessary unless you're just breezing straight through the game. Stop and smell the roses, maybe. :P

In addition - the Torchic you get via mystery gift (remember to get it, by the way!) levels up so fast. With exp share on, I basically never get to use it, because I want to keep my whole party at roughly the same level, and it always seems to be like five levels too high.

Pokemon-amie is a deceptively good feature. You spend some time petting your pokemon, playing games with it, feeding it cakes, making faces using the 3DS camera... It's dumb but it results in real in-game benefits. The dialog for that pokemon changes, (when you feed it a potion, for example, it changes to "X is thrilled to bits!" Pretty funny) it nods when you give it commands, and most importantly, it gains more exp, can shake off status effects, gets more crits, etc. I found myself liking my party pokemon a lot more after having spent 20 minutes petting them, too. It seems like Game Freak has actually found a way to manifest all that bull**** about "trusting in your pokemon" and stuff.

Honestly, it's a huge improvement over black and white, which were ultimately pretty forgettable.

Thanks for all the info guys! I appreciate it.

Pokemon has always been a strange one for me. I love level grinding generally, but in Pokemon I find it very annoying and don't like it. So hearing that they made it less grindy is exciting! As far as EV and all that stuff... never understood it and it seemed to involve grinding in a game where I hate the grinding. So cool!

EV training exists because in Person Vs Person battles, all Pokemon are put on the same level. EVs and IVs allow people to get the upper hand despite the handicap.

Post by: Krakow Sam on October 18, 2013, 04:26:07 am
Though it was originally just intended to be a hidden mechanic that gave pokemon a random-seeming stat progression to differentiate them. Obviously if it were actually random then most pokes would end up being roughly the same.

It's actually much faster to EV train by fighing horde battles than using the minigame. Protip.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: /lurk on October 18, 2013, 01:37:47 pm
 Use Sweet Scent, then surf the horde that shows up. With the Exp Share, all your pokemon get EVs, so if you use a Power item and have pokerus, that's like 50 EV's per horde. You can get a stat fully trained in two minutes.

It's sort of similar to Phoenix Wright...ish.

If you haven't played Phoenix Wright, then of course you should.

As for Radiant Historia, I've never played it, but it sounds *really cool* what with all the alternate timelines and stuff. I would play these games but my DS broke a few years ago and I've been using any money I stumble across to buy somewhat important useful things, so I can't really buy a new one.

I only know that Ghost Trick and Phoenix Wright are good 'cause they were ported to iOS, but I assume they're the same for whatever you're playing on.

Guy I know named Dustin tells me that Kingdom Hearts Recoded is pretty good, if you've never played that.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?

A Lite especially shouldn't be too expensive second-hand.
That is, if you've got any money. I've been thinking about getting a Gamecube controller, and they're pretty cheap too but still a bit too expensive for me, especially since I don't really need one anyway.

I was a huge fan of the Phoenix Wright games so that bodes well.

And yeah, Radiant Histories does look really good. I'm hoping it plays as good as it looked.

Additionally, and if you feel capable, the original DS model is very easy to fix if you wanted to try it out. Screens are also readily available.

Well, yeah, I know, I'm one of them.

I just mean that there's still a lot of online stuff with Pokemon B&W, which I wasn't expecting. I sort of thought the service would be shut down, like the original xbox live, but now I know that it's compatible with B&W 2 and the service is still up.

So that's what I meant.

Anyway, it's a bit of a shock for me because the only Pokemon game I've ever played or even seen being played was Red. The familiar-but-different feel is very cool.

It's cool. But White 2 isn't even the newest. Pokemon X and Y are. So I think that makes White 3 generations old.

in the last year:

i've been playing planetside 2 for a year now, being a longtime planetside 1 player it made me disappointed that so much content was removed in favor of a generic mmofps, i haven't found anything comparable so i continue playing

i played firefall intermittently for some months but it doesn't have enough action or gameplay, i really can't tell what kind of genre the game even is, firefall is trying to be something new. looking back firefall has improved and gets great updates though, i'm just sort of following it for now

starforge. basically minecraft + halo, i haven't checked on it for 6 months, it probably has a lot of cool stuff.  the only thing that confuses me is how this game will be on individual servers, i don't think it will work

contagion, a zombie hl2 mod with great gameplay.  i play it with my brother via skype and it is pretty fun to work together and escape.  not much content but i hope it will improve

guncraft.  i don't care for this game at all, i got it free so no problem.  some years ago there was an (indie?) game called ace of spades, it had such novel and fun gameplay, many imageboards hosted servers and basically publicized the game.  ace of spades game eventually became a ****ty generic shooter when it was acquired by JAGEX (how random is that?), guncraft is one and the same except it was never good

FTL! this game was awesome! i got it for $0.50 via humble bundle, i would love to see a similar game for android/phones!

Defiance.. i played this game for a couple of days before stopping.  there wasn't enough content.  the game was fun though, comparable to borderlands+firefall in terms of gameplay.  i might update and see what updates have been released soon.

Chivalry!  a first person medieval hack-slash game on steam, reminds me of team fortress 2 and a game called "Knights vs Pirates vs Vikings"

I hope you read that they're working on an update and iDevice version (http://www.ftlgame.com/?p=598), with an Android version coming later.


And I've been playing some PlanetSide 2 too. I still can't really decide if I like the game or not. Starting to lean to 'not' though, since capping bases is, after the initial fight, just waiting for a counter to reach zero. Plus, even when joining an organized platoon (from RockPaperShotgun), I still miss most of the action.

I warn you ... this game is not fun! It's CHALLENGING, but "fun" it is not!  :D

I do like games which are completely outside the norm and provide unique gameplay methods that I haven't seen before. And for Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland ... it is completely unique. Lots and lots of strange stuff going on ... very interesting.

But using your coins as your health AND your currency ... it will drive you insane in ways you can't imagine!

And Rocket Slime is fantastic. One of my favorite games of all time.

Yeah i really liked rosy rupeeland too, but I could never get through it.
It gets really damn grindy after a while and I just wasn't invested anymore(heh, invested).

I do agree it has some great unique gameplay mechanics that I'd love to see more of somewhere else maybe.
And skeleton pirates, can't ever have enough of those.

I will say though, its probably the gayest game I have ever played. And i don't mean that as an insult or anything, it just has the most flamboyant **** all over the damn place.
And i really wonder how they put all of that stuff in there. Or why for that matter, is it just for laughs?
I guess it doesn't really matter, and I found it funny so whatever, it just seems really weird in a Nintendo game.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I know that having majority control of a planet when an alert ends gives you a bonus until the planet is disputed again in alert.

I don't remember what the bonuses are, but I believe every player in the faction gets them.

lately i've been playing natural selection 2 on steam, awesome and unique game, got it for 1 cent via humble bundle!

it is an aliens-vs-human FPS with 1 player for each team acting as a commander, the commander plays the game as if its an RTS, they can exit the command center and play in first-person as well if they want (in this way the commander is a volunteer job for the team)

basically you secure various areas of the map and develop resource nodes to acquire more resources, you spend them on equipment or loadouts, commanders spend the resources on upgrading their teams weapons/armor or researching improvements or setting build requests for things that ping aliens, sentry guns, armories...

very interesting, kind of a mix of starcraft with halo perhaps? if i had to describe it

there is a mod i've been playing which ousts the commander role and leaves all personal upgrading/researching to the individual, you also don't worry about resource nodes, you gain exp/promotions which rewards resource points instead.  i would love to see more round-based games utilising this type of progression, it is very similar of warcraft 3 custom games

i've also been loyally serving the new conglomeracy in planetside 2, i changed the name of my outfit/clan to the grossest 3 words i could find, courtesy of some googling: Moist Festering Smegma - that is what other players are forced to read when i kill them, fabulous right??

Natural Selection sounds very similar to Nuclear Dawn from the way you're describing it.

Personally I've been playing some more EU4, though my interest has waned a bit from the initial excitement.

Just more or less wrapped up a Brandenburg -> Prussia -> Holy Roman Empire campaign, which was pretty fun. Prussia is the best at fighting.

I've also been playing some Planetside 2, though I'm pretty rubbish at it. Vanu Sovereignty for life.

Also recently got Borderlands 2, and played that a bit with my brother and a smidge with Pat.

Fun stuff.

It could be. It doesn't do enough new to be game of the year but it is a solid game with solid mechanics. Fun, funny, and worth the time. If its menu system had some hotkeys or better ui management I'd have no real issue with it.

Shorter side of RPGs though, hence why I think if you've waited this long might as well wait till it's on sale.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PikMini on April 15, 2014, 10:40:24 am
TESO for like a month or so,  have some random thoughts...

expensive

like $60 for just the game, which i already had downloaded from the beta, i just had to pay for the right to play the game... totally legit
and then $15 a month
damn! can you make this game any more affordable, i can't resist the urge to buy 5 more copies at this great pricing!

oh, yes, the expected bugs complimentary of any newly launched mmo...

i enjoy the dungeons and gameplay... it is first person/third person views, you interact with environment in a similar fashion to other TES.  similar games would probably be dragon's nest, vindictus, tera... in terms of gameplay, but they are all free to play.

interesting crafting system but horrible commerce/trade/guild implementations, many items are being farmed by repeated relogging (it resets the random contents of crates, barrels, etc)

the ingame taxes are damn high.  to C.O.D. (mail an item with a price attached, they receive item after they pay, you get sent back the gold) requires paying enormous fees.  there are no public auction houses, you are required to join a guild with 50+ members with the auction house setup... then wade through an endless sea of overpriced crappy junk to find out nothing is in your level range/build type.  oh, i'll sell some of my crap, wait *25% upfront listing fees on the price you list your item* come on, seriously?  it isn't like those gold coins are going to some fictional government or something, what the hell is the point of that?

there is no ingame time, even addons cannot provide this, the weather system is bugged and together this makes the special quests of becoming afflicted with vampirism/lycanthropy super-duper hard

the classes are nothing special
mage
warrior
thief
paladin
you can play whatever playstyle you want though, any armor/weapon for any class, you can only use 5 abilities in your bar, and 1 ultimate ability off to the side, it makes it challenging and i think many games will adopt this.

quests are pretty redundant, but not 'kill 10 goblins' ... it is more like 'press E to use stone' after 'kill 10 goblins' pretty revolutionary stuff.  i am not a TES lore buff so i can't comment on whether or not anything is accurate but it seems pretty sweet, wood elves are still badass flesheaters.

hmmm graphics and sound provide plenty of options, there is even an addon providing support for nvidias eyefinity (super widescreen graphics) there are a decent amount of addons now which remedy most problems.. like more emotes, auto-repairing your gear from NPCs, autoloot, minimap, experience bar numbers/percentage, group vital stats, better ui.. only more will be developed as well? seems nice to continue the TES moddability (but i never used any in the past, i just know they were a thing)

gold spamming is pretty bad, you can expect to ignore 30 people on /zone chat, receive 2 mail messages from gold websites, and get an invitation from gold website in-game guilds every day

zone chat in general is terrible and unhelpful, constantly filled with everquest/ultima circlejerks, WoW-zers, trolls, guild spam, and just random real-life discussions by a select few

Well Pikmini.

That's what you get, for playing a game which never should have been made in the first place. You paid money for a game which will probably go F2P within a few months. You could have prevented this.  >:(
to be honest i enjoyed the beta but never planned on paying once it was released. my brother made it seem like he would be playing it often so i decided to join in, we don't live together anymore so we try to play the same multiplayer games
small price to pay when compared to a plane ticket i suppose

So do you like it or not?
it is alright, i do have fun playing it, they give you a lot of flexibility with your playstyle, i enjoy coming up with unusual combinations

the only real negatives i can think of would be the high price to play, the gold industry (yeah yeah, this affects all games, but eso is really infested atm), and phasing

phasing is like...  a game mechanic which places you in instances all over the map, in certain areas/towns/etc based on quest progression and other things like population, if you are with a friend you will find yourselves 'phasing' or disappearing from each other a lot.  i don't RP so much but i imagine those guys are raging when their buddies disappear, totally ruins the immersion.  you can work around it by fast-traveling to each other and forcing the same instance but for quests it will not work, i'm not sure it can be improved and i hope future games stay clear of this system

Bumping this because I've been playing Age of wonders 3 like crazy.

It's taken me awhile to get into the game (their tutorial,while helpful left me fumbling over a lot of things) what I like about it so far is the  tech tree,which alongside the upgrades for the class you pick,is entirely decided by the game itself,so it loses the predictability that comes with having an established tech tree 

The focus on combat is one it's major  strengths and city  sieges are actually fun,something that Civilization games should take notes on.

Also,Mammoth mounts are awesome.

Maybe they'll go to some kind of... I dunno... like, a stack-based system?

Whatever you want to call it. Maybe they can let us have more than one unit per tile. It'd definitely change the way the game is played.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: eropS on June 25, 2015, 11:27:58 am
I never liked the stacks and honestly thought Civ V's last problem was the combat. It's total lack of depth (vanilla) was glaring not the mediocre combat (Japan FTW tho).

If Civ could do something like total war or AoW that'd be such a change of script that I doubt it'd ever happen.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on June 25, 2015, 01:37:04 pm
My facetiousness aside, I like the idea of timing games for combat.

Probably wouldn't work in Civ. But it'd work in Elder Scrolls. Maybe if I hit A right when my strike lands, I get a second strike. You know, Paper Mario style. And you can chain and build your combos that way. Anything... anything is better than what we have now. That pale elf took a greatsword through the face and is still coming at me. WUT?

I recently did something extremely foreign in that I started playing Skyrim permanently in 3rd person cam using a controller. It's a different experience, but surprisingly, not in a bad way. The OTS cam provides a more cinematic feel to melee attacks, executions feel more fluid and less jarring, and the added vibrations from the controller support provide some of the desperately lacking feedback. I recommend giving it a go.

Anyone ever play this game? It's fantastic! Really great golf course design game and you can even build your own golfer and play the course to win prizes in tournaments (if your course is good enough to host one). Not sure if many people bought this when it was originally out. But it's very fun and has a lot of depth.

Started playing around with Endless Legend tonight. I was super disappointed when I first bought it because in the past I was never too interested in military victory 4x games, and EL might have other routes but is very blatantly focused on military and aggressive expansion, to the point that there's an in-game resource which you have to spend to even offer any sort of diplomatic action, whether or not the other person accepts. War is cheaper than peace. I also am still not a fan of the ascetic of we-can't-decide-if-we're-fantasy-or-science-or-magic-science-or-whatever.

All that being said, once you go into it well aware you're playing a military strategy game, it's not so bad. There are imho some problems with how technologies are ordered to each age, but I like the simplified Civ city management where you assign people to work resources rather than tiles or buildings. They put the formula for each resource's production right in front of you and make it really easy for you to see how your changes affect progress.

I really loved Enemy Unknown. Was hyped for the longest time to play Enemy Within. Played it one night, for a couple hours, and still haven't gone back. I was super underwhelmed with mech durability (and mechs in general), nanomachines feel like they should have granted more unique benefits then the ones I had played long enough to unlock and while interesting, I can't help but feel like the clacking aliens don't add a whole lot more to overall strategy, though I'll admit it does force me to change sniper positioning more often.

Honestly, the single biggest impact change for me is the augment which randomizes the options available at each rank up, so that characters have unique skill trees and thus certain characters become more or less valuable as a direct result. I'll be far more protective of a sniper that got squadsight early than one who didn't. It forces me to actually make these decisions again, instead of going down the clearly optimal choices for each class with every single recruit. And the ones with a bad seed get to be mechs, so they get replaced anyways.

I'll go back some day. Just, not today.

Went back to Akiba's Trip recently. subsequent playthroughs go by much faster. First run doing all the sidequests and such took me around 20 hours. Now, on higher difficulty, the main game for each ending is taking me 3-4. I did two full runs in a single sitting and am about to go back and wrap up the final ending, which will also max out my equipment for a 100% Otaku mode run. I'm not normally someone who plays the same game over and over again but Akiba has just the right mix of gameplay variance and mindlessness I need.

I feel lame but
I've been playing a bunch of really weak crap on kongregate lately. God DAMN flash games are all awful. It's like every one of them is a demo for something that could be vastly more interesting but never ever will be.
Tried a couple of their "MMO" games too. Some of the most boring freemium crap made by man. For instance I tried Swords and Potions 2. I was like "oh neat a game where you run a shop".
But in reality "oh neat a game where you click and wait so you can click on more things and wait even longer great".

I dunno, man.
And even the simpler things like launch games are boring now. I used to love those.
I guess I just really want MGSV or something.

I have returned to XCom, but I don't plan on modding it at least until I actually finish the expanded content. Playing with random starting stats, level progression and skill trees, but no other second waves. Played for a couple hours this morning and progressed somewhere into the fourth month, so I've saved Zhang, blew up a zombie boat, and played secret agent man with a laser pistol. I'm at the point now where I have the key, but haven't used it yet as I just finished muton armor research and would like to outfit the team beforehand.

I'm still of the opinion MEC troopers are garbage, unless they get something really special in their normal level progression. Tactically they're just big dumb damage sponges that can't take cover, like Heavies but even worse.

My frontline at the moment is a pair of nanomachine'd assaults that managed to both get Bullet Swarm alongside Rapid Fire, enabling me to pop off a trio of shotgun blasts in quick succession from each of them. There are a lot of nasty interactions, especially among the overwatch skills, you can get when skill trees are random. It makes units unique as well, which makes you care more about keeping them alive.

MECs are my bread and butter in Long War, but that version is pretty different. They are kinda **** in vanilla.

Been playing GTA San Andreas again, but am fighting with Rockstar's dumb updates. I played this game a lot when it came out and am a huge fan of GTA. It was one of our favorites back when we were younger. Superbikes all day!!

But anyway, the game looked worse than it did when I originally played it and was much buggier. And this is supposed to be the newest version. Of course, it also has music patched out of it as well because Rockstar are morons. So I had to downgrade the game, install a separate user patch, convert my save files, and now the game looks significantly better, runs significantly better, and is actually complete.

Oh and the reason why I play ARK is that in core is a pretty good survival game that hit on many key features that I want in a survival game. You have the straight up surival aspect which I like. Having to gather food, water and so on. But there tons of game that does this part fairly well. But the game also have a nice way to progress. Learning new crafting recipes as you level up, but more importantly. Letting you find more. Pushing you to explore more. Your also in the hunt for dinos and other animals. Giving even more of a collector feel to it. And I like that. And of course you can build building. Also it updates all the freaking time.

The short answer is that there many small thing that makes me like the game.

I did play a Nubian king once in Crusader Kings 2 and did just that. And beyond. My empire reach up in to Germany (Which I had inherited though some complicated scheming) and I was actually conquering territory in Russia. It was pretty insane.

Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Krakow Sam on August 24, 2015, 03:31:33 pm
Yeah, since the Old Gods expansion there has been the Tribal government type, which can upgrade to a feudal kingdom or a merchant republic through a special decision.

Tribal governments are pretty interesting. They don't get any levies, even from vassals and have to call their vassals into wars as allies. The only holding type they can build is a temple or a special "tribal" holding representing tribal lands. The tribal holding produces more troops and gold the more empty holding slots there are in the province, and when the government upgrades the tribal holding turns into either a castle or a city.

I started playing games on a PSP emulator and it autobinds a turbo button to right trigger on my controller. It's given me a horrible habit because in every game now whenever I see a loading screen or cutscene or repeated animation or whatever I start mashing the button thinking that will make it go faster.

Last year I ordered something you're gonna like, Lego. It should finally be here in a month or so.

It showed up yesterday at my Dad's place. Headed back this morning to pick it up!

I was also playing JE, though it took a lot of shenanigans to get running properly. I liked some of the ideas in it, but really don't like the lack of naturally regenerating meters, even outside of combat. If you want every individual fight to be a challenge, then don't force players to run with tail between legs for ten minutes back to an arbitrarily placed shrine somewhere three dozen instances away just to recover after each one. A simple rest button would've made the experience so much better.

I would agree that the combat difficulty is fiddly,however,the game was the result of a console port so the clucky combat is to be expected
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: dndfreak on December 28, 2015, 09:25:47 am
I'm fine with how the combat itself is. It can be janky, sure, but a game is more fun when every encounter is a challenge than if there's no challenge at all.

I'm reminded of one of the Penny Arcade Rainslick episodes, can't remember which. It has a jrpg style, except items are x number of uses per battle instead of use once only and hp/mp/whatever automatically recovers after each fight, which in turn allows the game to throw everything it can at you each battle, and force you to work for each one and use everything you have access to rather than the typical grind. It's a great design, but that level of challenge without a convenient way of refilling lost resources means a huge amount of downtime inbetween challenges, which in turn makes it feel a lot more boring than it should be. Jade Empire has almost a great system, but falls short in one key area imho.

Overall it's really decent port with a few issues that are largely the result of porting  a 16 year old PlayStation title.I recall some people saying that it was too easy compared to the previous two,which I agree with,that and the scripted battles where you lose anyway are a pain

Just got Blood and Wine set up for Witcher 3. The UI overhaul (second one, too) is great. They finally nailed it. Can't wait to actually get into the new quest content. The new map looks nice a big!

And I am also playing A-Train City Simulator 3D on the 3DS. Very involved transport sim that will put you through ten hours of tutorials but god damn will you know how to play and fully enjoy the game once it is over. Highly recommend this game. Get through the long tutorials, they won't rush you and you will learn. And as a reward for learning the game properly, they will give you access to the full scenario/map creator.

Went back to Mario 3D World on the Wii U to finish it up.

It is still a flawed, inferior Mario game. Which is really a shame because they have a lot of great ideas and levels and seem to have had fun. But as I've already gone to in-depth several times, they flubbed the controls and the camera is strange. Got to Star World though and am working through it. Beyond the struggles with the controls, the levels are too easy and short. But I appreciate that each one is usually different, like in Galaxy. But even with Galaxy I had issues with something concerning the levels. I'm not sure what it is with the newer levels.

The actual level design is on-point, but there just seems to be no depth to the levels. All of the secrets are pretty obvious if you're familiar with how they hide things in Mario games. And none of those secrets offer anything really great outside of a convenient power-up.

Probably gonna finish the rest of the game today. I'll go back to Captain Toad next. Still have bonus levels to complete and a few challenges.

MEEEEEEEEEEOWWWWWW!

So I built a new PC and so have been playing a lot of PC games recently, basically catching up on a decade's worth of "oh that won't run on my computer."

I've been playing:

Overwatch, which scratches that old forgotten TF2 itch. I can't see myself getting as into it as some of the level 90+ people I see, but I'll totally be coming back to this frequently in the future. Games only last like 10-15 minutes usually so it's nice if I don't have a ton of time.

Doom, which I loved. It feels fantastic, very fluid movement with lots of double jumping and airtime, which is something you wouldn't expect from the protagonists bulky space marine appearance. Wasn't nearly as difficult as I expected, managed to beat many of the bosses on the first attempt on the normal difficulty. Maybe I'll come back and play it on hard sometime.

Dishonored 2, which is taking me a while to get into, not much I can really say. I find myself getting a bit bored while playing and can't really articulate why. Like I said I'm not too far in and I remember enjoying the first one so I'll stick it through a bit more.

Dark Souls 3, I bought this together with the season pass in a deal, so now I feel like I have to play it. I know it's considered one of the best games of 2016 and games I love such as Hyper Light Drifter are often compared to it, but I don't love that I can go a whole play session and feel like I've made almost zero progress by the end. I enjoy playing but I've never been big on games that provoke the controller-smashing urge, and when you die just before you're ready to stop playing, losing thousands of souls and bringing you back to the same bonfire you were still at 2 hours ago, that doesn't feel great. :P Still, it looks amazing and I think I might learn to love it.

I felt before I built the PC that there were hundreds of games in my backlog but now those are the only ones I can think of. Oh, and the Witcher 3 which I hear is fantastic, but I want to get some of these "out of the way" first. And I'll definitely be playing Andromeda when it comes out.

Am I missing any other huge RPG/adventure/shooter PC games from the last few years? (I've played the Bethesda games/GTA).
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Krakow Sam on February 20, 2017, 05:15:23 am
Yeah, there's this game that got a ton of buzz called No Man's Sky. Haven't played it myself but the trailers promise an epic experience. You should pick it up full price, no need to wait for a sale.

Post by: PatMan33 on February 20, 2017, 07:29:25 am
Play through Crysis, that's a really fun game. Far Cry 3 and 4 are also worthwhile. Honestly you could probably run Star Citizen during a free-fly, so that might be something you want to check out (hit me up if you do that).  There's your CryEngine fix. If space sims are something you like and you aren't into alpha testing, you can try Elite: Dangerous, but I know little about it.

If you liked DOOM, play Wolfenstein. I liked it better for a "MODERN REBOOT", but I also think DOOM has been pretty lame for a while so ignore me if you want.

Grim Dawn will run well if you like ARPGs, it's pretty good. Civ VI and XCOM2 are worth playing. New Deus Ex (didn't play), Fallout 4, did you play Cities Skylines? There's the Black Mesa mod on Steam if you want to redo Half-Life 1. Minecraft also has more options now that you have a better system; consider re-texturing old games to get new life out of them.

You ever play Alpha Protocol? Older game but I don't know if you could run it. Decent game with the best conversation mechanic I've seen in a while. Does many aspects of Mass Effect better than Mass Effect. New Battlefield? I hear it's okay. Not my thing though. Oh! Don't forget the new Hitman game, that one is supposed to be good. Just Cause 3 is stupid fun, but also very stupid. Want a challenging and rewarding multiplayer game? Pick up Natural Selection 2 on Steam. It's crazy-awesome, but hard.

You may have missed Spec Ops: The Line. Worth a playthrough at least. Very good FPS. Also The Stanley Parable has been remade and had a load of content added. There's a "new" TrackMania game if you like crazy racing games. There's a new Worms game that is good. There's this goofy shark game on Steam called Depth! (I think) that is a BLAST. I love this game.

That's all I got right now, I'm sure there are more. Did you play Starbound?
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Slinky on February 20, 2017, 07:39:29 am
Do people still play Natural Selection 2? It's always interested me but I was under the impression the community was pretty dead.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: PatMan33 on February 20, 2017, 07:44:17 am
It has always had enough people to keep several servers full and active over its life. If you want to play now, you can probably find a full server to enjoy.

But the game is very deep and challenging, so it never got much of a mass following. It's always been a bit anemic. If you wanna play, go install it today and try. It'll probably actually be dying off sooner rather than later. :(

Crysis, Far Cry 3 and 4

There's something about these games I was never a fan of. They feel kind of clunky to me,  I guess?

Civ VI

We've played this together. :P

Fallout 4 / Cities Skylines / Black Mesa / Minecraft / The Stanley Parable

Played all four!

New Battlefield?

Huh. I had assumed this was a console exclusive. Might look into it. It's certainly a good looking game.

Spec Ops: The Line.

I've tried this, and again, there was something about the way it felt that put me off. :/

Did you play Starbound?

I've owned it since almost day one and basically never played it. I may still play it, but right now I'm mainly looking for games I wasn't able to play before. :P

New Deus Ex / Hitman

These are good suggestions and I will do these things.

You mentioned some other games which I don't know anything about / don't have much of an interest in, but I'll have a look around. Thanks for the ideas.

For Honor has been the main thing right now.
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Rysworld on February 20, 2017, 11:09:05 am
All of my friends and I think For Honor looks really good but none of us can rightfully justify getting a game that is both sixty dollars and on Uplay. Waiting for a sale.

Also my recommendations for Tesla are thusly:

Hand of Fate- Odd little roguelite/virtual board game/ARPG that is a lot of fun in my opinion. Give it a look, maybe watch a bit of a playthrough, and pick it up if it looks interesting to you.

Devil Daggers- A first-person shooter where there is one level, consisting of a single large platform, and enemies keep coming at you in the same pattern. Your goal is to survive as long as possible with your glove, which can shoot either an SMG-like stream of weird red energy shots or a shotgun-like burst of them. A little like a Hotline Miami level that goes on forever.

Killing Floor 2- It's pretty much just Killing Floor 1 but slightly better in every way. The best kind of visceral and gorish zombie-hunting action combined with an engaging, if somewhat slow, level-up system. The Michael-transactions are going to put some people off, but you can ignore Mike anyways. He doesn't provide any guns
Title: Re: What are you playing now?
Post by: Slinky on February 20, 2017, 01:33:23 pm
Taking a look at my Steam library and my favorites from it.

Not sure how powerful your old computer was so maybe you've played some slightly older stuff but I would recommend the Tomb Raider reboot if you like adventure games, Life is Strange if you're into point and click stuff, and MGSV if you like stealth shooters. Those are my personal favorite Steam games I have currently. As for RPGs since you've already played most Bethesda games I don't really have anything to recommend - not that Bethesda games are even the best RPGs, but they tend to be the ones I sink the most time into. I can also second Alpha Protocol as being pretty cool.

As for stuff that isn't shooter/adventure/RPG:

Grow Home is also a cute little platformer but you have to be okay with intentionally janky physics so YMMV. Oh and if you want 2D stuff that your old computer probably could have done I highly recommend Lethal League if you're into fighting games and La-Mulana for 2D adventure sort of stuff.
