Title: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Ferodaktyl on May 29, 2014, 03:16:50 PM
i'm in a gaming crisis again, so i thought maybe i can get some  inspiration. List any game you're playing through right now or else.
ME : Re-Volt, Elf-bowling, Bejeweled. Pathetic, ain't it ?

I just finished Transistor, if you don't mind bleakness, the game is really great. Especially the soundtrack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zA1jRmAYfU&feature=youtu.be). Paper Boats and In Circles are my two favourite tracks.

I AM playing Watchdogs, nothing fantastically new in it, 100% false advertising, there are no dogs to watch. The gameplay is pretty fun though, gunfights feel pretty cool.

i thought a bit about Watch Dogs, but i'm not a big fan of GTA-like games, so i'll pass it. Gave a thought to Stalker Lost Alpha, but i'm kinda burned out on this genre too. Btw, i still have GTA IV Episodes from liberty city, have to try it yet.

i'm not into platforming and action games, and clearly not RTS, but it's my hope that i might stumble on something to eat my time. Played Project Zomboid last month, but it has only that much to offer, i wish it had a child with Cata DDA :).
Don't worry, just list games, something might click ;)

Before you do, I'd recommend to... "try it out". It really isn't for everyone. But if you get into it like I did, you will wake up a few days later, wondering what the hell just happened before shrugging it off and delving back into it just to wake up a few more days later.

Ah relax, I love 4X games, and I enjoy Aurora, as obtuse as it is, but it's pretty difficult to play, what with and, well, the obtuse everything, so I think Distant Worlds will be for me, also I watched a few videos, and it does seem to be something I'd enjoy.

Also I don't 'try out' games, my internet is too shit for any form of torrent service

My best advice is to play as eve, as soon as possible get either the nail or the book of revelations, sell your soul to Satan until you have no regular hearts, then you'll be permademoned. HAIL SATAN!
It's a powerful build, with the potential to win a lot of runs. You just have to suffer through Eve's abysmal starting damage.

Judas is powerful if you're willing to power through his starting health. And, if you're going floor 2 devil room, Judas is just as good a character as any.

The main power with Eve is that if you get rid of your regular hearts, you've got a permanent damage and speed boost, and the damage buff is slightly higher than Judas' book(2.16 compared to 2)
Basically, she requires a bit of prep, but becomes a more powerful ???.

Also with the Hail Satan thing, I was going for more of the Woodland Critter Christmas (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dJQSIQwl6c) from South Park.

It's apparently illegal, but it's free.

Plus half of the games I've downloaded have been games I actually own, but can't run because software and the fact I don't have admin access on my laptop.

The DLC goes down to like 50C when it goes on sale on steam. So *shrugs* Im waiting for that. The game and DLC together are like $1.50


EDIT:
/me is gonna buy binding of isaac on this summer steam sale.
Shoulda bought it when it was $1.50 a couple weeks ago. Like 99cents for the base game, 49 for WotL.

Yeah, im waiting for the summer sale (in a few days hopefully) To buy it.

Welp anyways I am having a real good run with Judas, I have made him an extreme glass cannon. Though the game seems to be slightly bugged. I was able to buy an item from Satan that is worth 2 hearts, it took all of my life even my 3 spirit hearts! But now I can fly. I am also able to leave the battle arenas after it is closed. I have found a spirit heart so I don't immediately die in one hit and life ups don't seem to do nothing maybe I had -1 hearts though?

Post by: Datanazush on June 17, 2014, 08:07:34 AM
Known bug, if it takes away all your regular hearts or more, it will put you into a state of semi-death, where the game doesn't quite know what to do with you, so you'll have no health until you restore some.

My favourite item combo is Eve + Nail + Habit + Wafer. The habit restores half of an items charge whenever you get hurt, the wafer makes sure you only take a half heart of damage each time you get hit, then the nail restores a soul heart every time you activate it along with turning you into a big demon increasing your damage and making enemies who touch you take damage. FUCKING INVINCIBLE.

Yeah my second life up gave me a heart.

But not after giving me ALL THE HEARTS.

I remember playing the original Mechwarrior Mercenaries, that game was awesome.  One mission, the Aerotech pilot I had hired got taken out, but I was able to salvage his plane, and it was worth more credits than ALL the salary I had paid him on all the previous missions he had flown for me combined.

It's also awesome to see someone mention TWEWY, it's an absolutely incredible game.  Great gameplay, sweet art style, and the story and characters rank up there with Planescape: Torment for some of the best of all time.

On topic, playing AirMech (fear my Helix missile boat!), Dark Cloud, and MGS 3: Subsistance (I'm doing much better now that I've learned how to grab enemies WITHOUT immediately killing them).

That's a shame about the missiles. Literally the first thing I did when I got to 75 explosives was get Annabelle from Black Mountain, the storeroom had a handful of missiles for me to use with it, which tided me over 'til I reached the Boomers.

I'd much rather not have realistic damage in New Vegas, given that most of my combat strategy consists of close range explosions.

Annoyed at the Engi Cruiser as drones seem really inefficient

Eh? Always thought that the EMP+Attack drone worked really well.

Must be on your end, 'cause it always let me deploy mine even if it was destroyed.

My friend bought me bioshock (on the humble bundle, he got the darkness 2 and the bureau and he gave me the bioshock steam key), so, im playing through that. I nearly finished it in one sitting while at my cousins a few years ago, but I didnt pay too much attention to the atmosphere/story..So..Yay. Also; playing GTAIV, which physics engine seems to be ramped up compared to the console version. Also; Glad I can maintain 20+FPS on my shitty laptop on GTAIV. Oh, yeah, and DF 0.4. Thats about it..

Me and my friend did everything in terraria co-op. He ended up getting the best armor (turtle armor?) with vampire knives, so, he just ended up tanking. And I had spectral armor with pretty much every spell/staff in the game. Or occasionally full voodoo armor and have like 6 pygmies (I think) following you around.

Playing through Kingdom Hearts 2, great game.  The Gummi ship sections are really fun, think Star Fox with custom ships, the options from R-Type (which are also custom built), and for some reason, it also reminds me of playing with the old Captain Power pre-laser tag toys with the VHS tapes.  Good times.

Besides, being able to beat up enemies alongside Mulan is awesome.  At least not ALL Disney women are damsels-in-distress.
Though I do miss some of the summons from KH1.  Damn it, I want Bambi back, feeding on the blood of my vanquished foes to give me more loot (Yes, that IS what Bambi does in KH1).

Finally, PLEASE tell me I'm not the ONLY person here who knows what Captain Power was.  I know they were primitive and silly, but the spaceship/laser tag toys were AWESOME.  And the VHS tapes, with the C&C Red Alert levels of live-actor cheesiness and the strobe effects that could trigger a seizure at 50 yards.

I've been playing Divinity: Original Sin, very hard classic RPG? I enjoy this, I like to call it Friendly Fire Simulator 2014.

Picture this: I've got my Hydrosophist casting rain on the enemy, I want to disarm the exploding skeletons bomb, and rain does that real well. I follow this up with my knight rushing the entire enemy pack, while my rogue lines up for backstabs, all in all. The fight's probably on lock. A couple enemies are outside the steadily growing pool of water, Not a problem, none of them need to be in the pool. But it's kind of a problem. I forgot my rogue has electrified daggers. When he backstabs the exploding skeleton the electricity annihilates it, but it doesn't end there. Electricity arcs from the skeleton into the water, stunning my entire party and royally fucking me over. But hey, it's a learning experience.

But you gotta get that wizard hat. And beard.

Been playing this weird little indie game called Anamnesis? You're sent to this colony called Anamnesis (because like, every 'cycle' or whatever everybody forgets a whole bunch of places and they reappear there to be rediscovered or something?) to go find a bunch of parts to a randomly chosen artifact. It's like, part RPG, part strategy game, part I don't even know. It's all text based too because it's built on a visual novel engine but it isn't a visual novel at all.
Have a link if you want to try it, I guess? http://blog.anamnesis.co/

The two of us share similar taste; it's just that I've never 'njoy'd DF at any level or time, for that matter.
I'm looking to 'up' my ISP prefs so I can butch into some MBWB tools and mods, may even have another round of fun with TES3 Morrowind editing if I get my hands on GOTY edition, which is unlikely. That's why I found both TES and TES2, the Daggerfall vintage; my short-spanned gameplay sessions with these bring back such fine and lively memories. :)

Been playing Heroes and Generals. Pretty fun, but I hate grinding the ingame cash for my new stuart, but it'll be worth it to be able to actually damage a tank....with my own tank.
it's F2P, with a WW2 setting. All things considered I like it.

So starting to get back into dead zone, which is kinda weird having played it when it first came out on Armor.
Also really tired of hearing "The germans are all cheaters" on HnG. Partially because while I mainly play US, I do occasionally play Germany with some people I met in game. I don't know, it just frustrates me because I've seen some guys who play US cheat and pointed it out and was pretty much told to fuck off by the rest of the team.
The guys who make it also have a strict policy against cheating. you cheat your banned, no refund on any purchases made, so I don't understand why people do it in the first place.

By the way, Vulnus, although I think you might already know it, DO NOT TRY TO GO FULL RAMBO IN THIS GAME. EVER. (Unless you are Chuck Norris or you are dealing with n00bs, in which case you can do that) It's not like Counter Strike or the infamous Cod of Duty, where you can go solo and kill a full team of players. Always try to bring a couple of team mates with you and never blindly rush into a fight, unless you want to get yourself constantly killed.

Hey, could I get some game suggestions?
Genres I'm Interested in

1: Post Apocalyptic (I got Fallout NV, and there's just something about post apoc games I like.)
2: Strategy  (Squad based or otherwise, strategy games are something I've been playing for a long time and quite enjoy)
3: Brawlers/Hack-and-Slash

Of course, I'm open to trying new stuff. Bonus points if it's free, but I don't really care either way since I don't have any money right now. I just want to line up a few good games to grab  when I get some spare change.

Post Apoc + Squad based gameplay = Wasteland 2. Nuff said. I suggest you to check it out on steam.
Title: Re: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Lenney8 on October 05, 2014, 02:52:47 AM
!!!WARNING HUGE POST!!!
Ok, here's a list off the top of my head:

Kenshi is really good, its on steam. Its like cdda but with graphics, no zombies/mutations (no bionics yet but will have), and allows focus on either a single character or a community/group and town building. Ok, so maybe its more like dwarf fortress - but without guaranteed failure, or dwarves (although you could make all your characters short and bearded if you wanted). Its an in development game, but updates happen regularly. Last I checked it was ~15 or ~20 USD on steam.

Liberal Crime Squad is both fun and funny, and if you are up to spending at least a few hours learning how to go 30 min without failing, you can play DF.

Also if you've never played morrowind, or (god forbid) you've played skyrim before playing morrowind, then you haven't played a good (non rougelike) rpg yet.

Darksouls 2 is also worth the cash - I sunk 200 hours into that pretty darn quick after buying it(like in 10 and 20 hour chunks for a week. I had to force myself to leave the house and go to work).

If you want a good rouge-like, divine divinity is good too.

I've heard there are some promising F2P mmorgs coming up on steam if your into those.

Speaking of MMOs, Guild Wars (I've played GWI and all its expansions, but not GWII - although I hear very good things about it) is a very high quality mmo that has been pay-once-then-F2P since P2P mmos still dominated the market. GW also has very good customer service and they really know how to do events and add in real money purchases without effecting the balance of the game or making players who don't buy things feel left out.

Fall out New Vegas is loads better than FO3, and has great mod support on nexus.

For hack and slash, I would definitely recommend Diablo I/II over DIII. Torchlite incorporates a lot of DII elements and has a very nice DII feel while bringing some nice new stuff to the table and basically adding things without breaking what doesn't need fixing. It also has great mod support and only costs $20. Theres also FATE, which is a much more generic hack and slash, but still pretty good for ~10 USD.

I only briefly played the LOTR mmo, but from what I saw it was very good, even on my low-spec laptop at the time.

Any of the Monster Hunter games are good, I own Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and poured a ton of time into it.

WarFrame was pretty fun, although it lost its charm for me around the 200 hour mark.

DISHONORED was fun while it lasted, had a decent amount of replayability, but I was glad I waited until it came on sale.

Minecraft was fun for me until it got really popular and the server I always played on was overrun with dicks and annoying kids and all my pals left.

If you like mtg but don't wanna spend money on cards and tournaments (its very hard to resist the temptation), the magic 2013, magic 2014, etc electronic editions are pretty good. I had the 2013 edition from xbox arcade on my old 360 and the single player was a lot better than I expected.

I've got a ton more recommendations, but I don't feel like spending hours typing them out so I'll just leave it at this. If you want you can see my legitimately obtained pc games by searching my steam account, my steam name is Socucius Ergalla (previously lenney8, my bio says something to that effect too)

Bonus points if you get my steam id reference.

Post by: Lenney8 on October 05, 2014, 03:22:52 AM
Yeah I don't much like mmos either. And as much as I enjoy skyrim, Bethesda really screwed their fanbase when they tried to dumb it down and simplify it. Just the sheer difference in number of spells, armor, npcs, quests, weapons, and places between morrowind and skyrim, or even oblivion and skyrim, is appalling. Also it took me 3 months and 4 tries to beat morrowind's main quest. It took me a few hours and one try to beat skyrims main quest AND the compainians simultaneously, the first time. Worst of all, they removed spells to unlock things in skyrim, which is just plain stupid. Oblivion was pretty good though, not nearly as ground breaking as morrowind, but it got really good sales without betraying the fanbase and over hyping it.

If you have the patience you should play the first two elderscrolls games (arena and daggerfall). Bethesda lists them as freeware now, tho  you'll need dosbox or somesuch to play it

EDIT:
I find skyrim absolutely unplayable without large amounts of mods. I initially had it for the xbox then ditched that when I built a gaming pc the year after it came out. Thanks to the nexus and all the modders out there who made my 700+ hours on skyrim worth it!
Title: Re: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Vulnus on October 05, 2014, 04:11:26 AM
I found skyrim, with a little imagination, quite enjoyable. I never jumped into the main story line but went around completing side quests, building a house, and trying not to die from the wildlife, which I think was lacking in Oblivion, not to mention killing a deer was near impossible for me in Oblivion.
The shouts were interesting, but I didn't find myself implicitly looking for them, and thus never got that many. I had one character who focused on magic and felt it was a bit too easy to get new spells, though I think Oblivion made it too hard in my opinion. Having played FO3 and FNV on pc I wish I could have modded Skyrim, and I lacked the expansions for Oblivion and was locked out of quite a few mods.
Though I have to say, Skyrim made archery more viable to actually take out targets then in Oblivion.
Just this guys thoughts.

Post by: Lenney8 on October 06, 2014, 02:46:14 PM
Yeah I'm not saying skyrim is bad - or maybe I am... - but it definately could have been better in many areas. It did improve on some things - like archery - but it also had serious balance issues. In particular, I play on master diffuculty and every fight was either ridiculously easy or ridiculously hard. In morrowind -especially early game or if you weren't stat crunching like a mother - you had to stop and think before every possible fight, regardless of if you were going for a stealthy approach or not. I do love skyrim but it seriously needed at least another year in development, imo.
Title: Re: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Aravhorn on October 06, 2014, 09:30:51 PM
Personally, Skyrim is only playable enough for me if it's modded as hell, since the vanilla game doesn't offer enough challenge and immersion to my assassin character. As for Morrowind, I don't even understand how people can even go stealth in the game! Seriously, at lower levels, no matter how well you pick up your stats and classes, the enemies will always spot my character with a frequency of 499 out of 500, so leveling up is a pain in the butt (and I'm not talking about pickpocketing people) and quickly turns into a grinding process. Sure, the chameleon and invisibility spells are really helpful, but they are really hard to come by, especially considering that my character is not a mage (on an unrelated note, is it just me, or being a mage in Morrowind is kinda OP?).

But I cannot deny that Morrowind's story is waaaaaaaaay more polished than Skyrim's, with the whole story slowly building up around your character as you progress. Oh, and also I like how joining one faction affects your relationships with the other factions in the game, to the point of not allowing you to join some of them completely. I should also mention that this game has one of the best journals systems I've ever seen in the TES series, and the way it gives you the actual directions to a specific place on the map (Example:"Okay, when you see the magma lake in front of you, take the road to the left, and then pass by the dead tree nearby. Then take another turn to the right at the crossroads by the big rock and you will reach your destination").  The only thing I didn't like from the game, though, is that every single NPC had the AI of a frickin' statue, never moving from their assigned spots. EVER. But perhaps I was just spoiled by Skyrim's dynamic NPCs, who knows...

Well you have to remember the game was released in 2002 and meant for single core processors so adding a lot of pathing or complex AI wouldn't have been too feasible, especially considering how many NPCs there were(its really sad that morrowind had more npcs with unique dialogue - and more npcs with dialogue options over all IIRC- than skyrim, which spent much more time in development than its predecessors). But yeah, the game focused on immersing the player through gameplay and variety instead of overwhelming graphics. I would have bought skyrim six times over if they spent as much time and effort in gameplay as they did graphics.

Factions were my favorite part, especially considering you got to build and man your very own castle/estate when you got high enough in one of the Great Houses. The only mods I ever used was one to fix the enchanting system and one that added some new player made quests. Even in skyrim I have a lot of mods that add tons of morrowind-esque content and changes.

Speaking of content restrictions though, Fall Out New Vegas has TONS of cut content because the Havok engine wouldn't support it. Like almost half of the game was cut because of it - really upsetting considering how good the game is already.

Well damn, now I'm considering Morrow wind...
On Fallout New Vegas I found it a wonderful experience except.......................................................................all the open space with pretty much nothing. Not to mention I would have loved some urban area fights like in FO3, which had some great points in my opinion. But FO3 is a different topic all together.
I loved all but one of the DLCs for NV, that one being dead money. It didn't have that Fallout feel to me, and I felt far to restricted in my movement. And it lacked that compulsion to explore the none neccessary areas of the map that I felt in the others.
And having all the DLC opened up all the mods I wanted to get. I love the Robco mod for NV, it feels amazing watching my own creations tear into my foes while I sit back with my (finally actually useful) science character to watch.

Also, you got your own castle/estate to man and build? Now I want Morrow wind.....damnit....
At least it's twenty bucks.

I always liked Morrowind discussions, but there's no point in doing so this time. A shadowrogue completing his/her task in a plotted adventure is well, like adapting every RPG to a single-player effort. The bigger the adventure gets, the bigger the grin on your face is - so you get tempted to experiment with items and powerful buffs at your disposal before there's even a glimpse of an idea to start over and invite another PC in.

I've just finished comparing TES-based tabletops with a version of my own, and it goes to show just how much the plot really matters. It forms a grid around character development "bubble" consisting of events and rewards, whilst a GameMaster is able to adjust every single requirement accordingly. After all, there is a reason behind the TES series - being that Arena was an experiment, Daggerfall an eerie, vintage (moreso than you perhaps imagine) and indie-loving - but then Morrowind and its legacy picked up on somewhat epic storyline and not so modest looks and feels.

Having KA101's sarcastic point of view here was, in fact, imperishable - prior to Morrowind, TES was just special, never ever popular. It became adaptable with Oblivion, and fun-for-all with Skyrim; if we care about nice guys doing nice things not finishing last, it also goes to show that we can have nice things - or so to say. :)

Last game I played was a Lanius A run on FTL.  Just managed the kill.

And for the record, I was being completely straightforward there.  I regret that you folks thought I was joking--Daggerfall soul-binding is completely optional and I've several nice items w/o any slavery involved.

Likewise, I'm not joking when I'm disappointed that male Daggerfall characters never encounter treants, and female characters never encounter nymphs.  (Treants take and give much more damage, and if there's anything ogleable about 'em, I missed it.)  Then there's the whole vampire/ancient gender differential, and the problem that women's clothing--sleeves, in particular--never seems to mesh well with armor.

I've been playing EVE Online for the last month or so. The damn game is addictive.

Yeah, EVE lets you buy a month of game time in game for about 600 million ISK, where a good battleship will run you a billion, and a high quality cruiser loadout is about 200 mil.

All in all, if you're lucky you'll be able to get a month here and there with solo action, but a lot of people pay their way through fighting wars for their corp or mercing out.

Lots of Guild Wars 2.

An outright disturbing amount of Guild Wars 2.

I stayed up for almost three days straight recently playing Guild Wars 2.

started playing wasteland 2. For those of you who liked either the original wasteland or Fallout Tactics, it's a good choice. It's also damn hard ( on ranger difficulty) and the resources are scarce enough to make you count the rounds spent :). Combat is turned based and it's the same shizz as in Divinity Original Sin (another game i started and didn't finish). Overall i think it's worth the money.

2.Alien: Isolation (Game loads indefinitely after that certain point in the game where you get to the reactor core and find a nasty surprise. Also, still didn't get scared by the alien -_-)
3. Minecraft. *sighs* Next!
4.Dorf Fortress.
5.And a liiitle bit of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments (I have to admit that it's a fun time-killer, although it is kinda easy for my awesome brain muscles!)

In my "Soon to be played" list I have Distant Worlds: Universe and Metro Redux (I've never played the game before, Don't judge me! >:( ).

Uhhh, it's kinda shitty in terms of gun variance, especially considering Arma 2's history. But as a base game platform it is mechanically solid, a lot of the problems from Arma 2 are fixed or made better. IMO, unless you're a massive fan of high-realism military shooters, don't get it for $60, wait for it to be on sale or something.

I was playing the Evolve Alpha before it closed yesterday.  Absolutely fantastic game, even in an unfinished state.  Couldn't get enough of it.  Can't wait for the beta, or if they're silly enough to not bring the beta to PC, the full game in February. 

Right now, I'm bouncing between Binding of Issac: Rebirth, Hyrule Warriors, Lords of the Fallen, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare MP (yeah, I know). 

Advanced Warfare is probably the most fresh the series has been for nearly a decade.  You wouldn't think the exo jumpjets would change much, since the core gunplay is pretty much identical and you still die extremely quickly, but the ability to hop around, juke people's aim, and close/open distance very quickly changes it up significantly, and it's really fun in short bursts.

My friend spends a frighteningly large amount of time playing it. Never really got into the game myself, a little to repetitive for my tastes. My friend has shown me levels further into the game that do look pretty awesome though. The game is laggy on my metal potato of a CPU and is uninstalled though. :v

(If you are wondering so far my friend has clocked 1,525 hrs on record on that game alone.)

Well, I was playing This War of Mine. Then fucked with the wrong survivors and got utterly wrecked. Then I played some Isaac and Zelda back to back.

So I decided to purchase Vice City and play it. Goddamn it's weird going back to these games, I never played them as a child (my Dad played all the GTA's up till' San Andreas then quit after that. My Dad knew what was in the games, I couldn't fool him.). But I remember watching him play it a lot.

Where do I start. Tommy moves like he's on tank treads, aiming is horid, most cars fall into two categories; Butter Greased Wheels or Actual Car Handling; the motorcycles in the game are probably NASA experiments, you hit a light pole prepare to fly into space mother fucker, and the music is soooo fucking goood!

Oh. Similarly to Fallout: New Vegas, I think the glitches are the best part of the game. I crashed my bike into the side walk and no clipped into hell; landed on the hood of a car and couldn't move, with my health slowly draining as the car drove; and I beat a pedestrian to oblivion with my knuckles (they fell through the map).

Oh and the Ocean no clipped into one of the parking lots, I almost drowned.

Actually Franklin isn't there either. I think this was made around the time of the first teaser trailer, so only Micheal would be known. CJ, Luis, Claude, Niko, Vance, Tommy, guy from china townwars, guy from Liberty City Stories, and Johnny are in the picture.

Which if this was made after the game came out, Johnny would have a massive head wound and would probably be strangling Trevor.

What is 'Prequel'?

Fuck, I converted Ninja. Whelp I really hopped you didn't read it, because I got to go purchase all my cult shit back from the chef.


What is 'Prequel'?

My guess? Another webcomic.


Back to brass tacks. Does anyone know how the fuck to nab a jet in GTA 5, that's the reason why I quit playing. One moment I'd be combing the country side for Murder Notes and other collectibles, then the next moment I'm on the in-game internet purchasing another fucking attack chopper to try again at stealing a jet.

It's also known as Making a Cat Cry: The Comic.

It takes place as a prequel to one of the Elder Scroll games, Oblivion IIRC.

There, there's a topic in general discussion where we can carry on about webcomics, how they weird us out. Then we end up reading them and finding out it's the second coming of literature... or something along that line.

SO BACK TO IMPORTANT VIDEO GAMES!

I downloaded an animated chems mod for Fallout: New Vegas and I'm currently RP'ing as a guy who lost his home in a NCR raid. He's now squatting in some Solar Farm shack, sticking Pyscho in his arm as ED-E looks at him in pity.

Okay, I'm lying. His sticking it in his side.

Hmm.
Inquisition's combat is a little more action-y than the other 2 games. Archer Rogues (well, at least Varric) can move slowly while they shoot, and Warriors and Two-Dagger Rogues move towards the direction they attack. Mages stand still and fling spells ;-;
And I feel like movement is a little more important too. The first boss I fought had a ranged attack that I was constantly moving to avoid.

Playing Robocraft at the moment with my good old trusty T7 Plasma bomber and T7 Walker.
My T7 Plasma bomber is called Senbonzakura (MK. XIV), which means A Thousand Cherry Blossoms. I named it that because of the sheer amount of plasma cannons it has. And it is pink.
My T7 Walker is called Mosquito (MK. II), and it looks suspiciously like a mosquito, 4 wings outfitted with rail cannons, and a big rail cannon on the cockpit, making it look a lot like a mosquito. And it has 6 legs.

I mean it's interesting in that you can do whatever in the hell you want, heck I broke out of jail, stole a uniform, and impersonated a cop for a while. But it's not the type of game I enjoy long continous hours of play in. So I'll pop in for an hour or two here and there, but not one of my really long gaming sessions.

I'm loving the game, the randomness factor is the best part about it.

I was in the bank ready to cash my check, the bank robbers showed up. I decided, "Oh. I'll help the cops!" Then they all turned on me, so I said fuck it and decided I was going to rob the bank while they fought. I got away with a little over $400.

Then in that little convenience store, fought the insurgents and made off with even more money.

Now it's Tuesday and I nearly have a grand in cash. But I ended up getting tired of the visuals, it kinda hurts the eyes looking at all the ugly brown textures. Eitherway, I can see myself coming back to play this just to create a little bit of chaos.

*sounds of a gun being loaded* *point's gun at Vunus's head*
I'm pretty sure it's all legal, they deal with old games and indie games, indies most likely don't bother with DRM anyway, and old games there's either none or there is literally nobody who cares now about such things (I could be wrong).
But as I said I'm sure everything is perfectly legal.

From my rather limited understanding I thought DRM was something the companies put into the coding for reasons beyond my knowledge. From that knowledge I thought these companies would condemn the DRM free sale of these games. Again little knowledge on the subject and a curiousity about it since I've seen some DRM arguments fly around.
Did a little digging and here's what it appears GOG does  from what I saw: They get legal permission to sell these games, and if they are asked to remove them from the site they provide the users who have it on their accounts X amount of time to download it if neccessary before it is actually removed.

DRM is essentially anti-theft software built into the game. Lots of people don't like it because it can be restrictive and cause problems. GOG selling DRM-free games are totally legal, the developers chose to sell DRM free versions of the game through GOG.

I'm no expert, so don't go quoting me word for word.

Post by: Chaz on November 24, 2014, 04:50:17 AM
Not to mention that the people who run GOG (CD Projekt RED) are the developers of the Witcher series, so they can do whatever the hell they want with their own games, and as a result they've decided to sell them (or in this case give them away) directly, and without the DRM :D

(Also, for the record: A number of games have been removed from GOG's store in the past, but I believe customers who have already bought those games are still free to download them wherever and whenever - it's just that nobody else can buy the game from GOG anymore. I know this for sure because I still have the original Fallout games on my GOG account even though they were taken off the store over a year ago)

As for what games I'm playing, I'm actually in a bit of a rut, I've been trying to find a nice, slow-paced, relaxed strategy game to help me unwind (I'm also just a really huge fan of games that involve logistics, which is why Factorio has appealed to me so much). That said, I've also just been idly playing Pool Nation (Mostly screwing about and getting trick shots), and Warframe - because space ninjas are always cool.

Distant Worlds is lovely. My second favorite space 4x (the first is Aurora but that is not for everybody)

I actually started playing with a tutorial that recommended turning almost all automation OFF at first so that you get a grasp of what exactly is going on under the hood while your Empire is small and as you grow, turn automation ON gradually for tasks that you understand and don't enjoy doing.

I am currently juggling Cata, Elite:Dangerous, Far Cry 4 co-op on the rare occasion my buddy is online, Qvadriga, and I'm thinking of doing a bit of Endless Legend and CK2:Way of Life in the next 2 days I have off. I hop around a lot and sometimes I'll play this many games in a day.

Sleeping Dogs (Second play through, my first lasted about 20 with minimal side questing and messing around), Shogun 2 total war Fall of the Samurai, Death to spies, Death to spies moment of truth, Dead rising 2 off the record. A small bit of Far cry 3 blood dragon.

Games I'm looking at: GTA V(Already decided to get this one, just waiting for PC), Far Cry 4 (Already own 3, heard they're pretty similar), Watch_Dogs (Kinda on the fence, pretty sure it's just GTA with hacking as a gimmick), DayZ (again, kinda on the fence. Heard good and bad), Arma 2or 3(Heard their both pretty solid.), and a COD that has the zombie mode(because curiousity and why not).
I should probably make a new thread for the last bit, but whatever, I'll probably make a thread for something similiar later.

Far Cry 4 is largely just Far Cry 3 for better or worse. I like it a lot and they made some improvements but I would decide to buy it or not solely on how much you want to play more Far Cry 3.

The problem is that you're playing it like normal S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Unless you have another reason for not liking it. You don't soak bullets like in normal stalker, you take one or two bullets without armor.

Guys, should I buy Dragon Age: Inquisition? I never played the other games of this franchise, and from the looks of it, it has the same gameplay as the Baldur's Gate series back in the day (which I can't bring myself to like, no matter how hard I try). Or did I interpret it all wrong and the gameplay is way different than I think?

Also, how different is this game from other fantasy RPGs, like say, Skyrim or WoW? Is it party based, or can I just wander alone as a thief, lurking in the shadows? And finally, are your actions relying on your skill or luck, like in the older RPG games (like, you have x% chance of success of sneaking past a group of bandits, and you can fail even if you are far away from them and hiding in the shadows), and how much your choices affect the plot?

EDIT: Just watched the metacritic site... Damn, there is almost a flame war going on there! There is almost the same amount of "haters" as of "likers"

It keeps getting better.  Biomes are A Thing as well as weather and climate, so you can embark on a winter wonderland and freeze to death (or, if you are clever and make coats, starve to death).  Likewise, there are heaters, fires, and air conditioners.  The latter can be used to make a fridge room (freezing temp, nothing rots) but they also need a heat dump so try not to accidentally broil your dining room like I might or might not have.  Crafting is a thing now, as between making clothes, stone blocks for cheap building materials, or uranium decorations to put in the medbay, you'll actually want some artists around.

People also have specific limbs, so you can shoot someone's ear, toe, or arm off in combat (RIP combat engineer guy who opened a door and took a round to the neck), and that's coupled with peg legs, prosthetics, and super bionic limbs/eyes to help fix up your guys.  Capture a hostile tribesman, decide a person with no hands isn't going to be much help, steal his kidneys, trade them for mortar shells, and accidentally lob an incendiary round right into your own people.

Good fun all around.

I have played nothing but Skyrim for four days. GOTTA KEEP MY EYES OPEN FOR DRAGONS. EYES TO THE SKY TRAVELER.
skyrim is good, but i prefer oblivion, which i have been playing quite a bit recently. i DO have oblivion modded to, well, oblivion and back. race mods, better faces mods, mods to fix mods, mods for mods, anime masks, a floppy fish club, capes, ninja, BFGs, decapitation, a mod which MULTIPLYS ALL ENEMY SPAWNS BY 10, better combat mod, open cities, dancing, basic need to eat, SAIL ABLE SHIPS, Dwarves, goggles, new spells, black powder explosives, more companions, first person body, roaming travelers, Gaur, better graphics, advanced post processing, the list is infinate. skyrim mods are impressive, but for sheer weirdness, insanity, and volume, oblivion is the way to go. i didnt like skyrims removal of most magic spells, custom spells (which have been a feature since Daggerfall(which is also great)), dumbing down of enchanting, no stats, no Unarmed, and that perk system which made me cry, due to no longer getting benifits just from raising skills, no you have a limited perk value, making a generalist build much less practical. and magic is So underpowered in skyrim. the custom spells thing might actually have a valid cause, as it was possible to make a spell (drain health 100 points for 1 second, at later levels coupled with 100% weakness to magic for one second) that could kill almost anything, for 35 magika, at level one. wow that was a rant.

there are a few recently released games that only work on x64 OS, and i'm kinda reticent to any changes lately (probably a sign of old age) so idk...  anyway, Halfway is an interesting old-time style tactical RPG, not quite X-Com quality but good enough.
Also Endless Legend seems a good 4X, kinda buggy from what i read about.

Endless Legend does have a fair handful of bugs. Still a really good game that introduces some rather cool mechanics into a genre that doesn't really change much. I'd totes recommend it if you're a fan of turn based strategy games.

Wow that was fun, I had a ton of money left. I also caused M.A.D. but I had gotten 95% Oil Addiction. Was annoyed because that town or whatever in Africa was over a huge oil deposit and I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it, I was only able to barely fit a small oil rig over the deposit. :|

Yea I unlocked it not long after I replied and replayed

Survived until around 3100.
I had figured out a trick where I can put buildings closer together than allowed by placing it before the first building gets parachuted down.
This time I had a ton of money and had oil addiction at %100 which screwed me over because the demand went way up because of that and there was literally no more room for human oil factories.

I know your feel bro... I can't find the "magic" in it either. I mean, HL2 was "kk" but all  the others...

Maybe you expressed way better than me there. That's what i can't find! I love the creatures and story, but just can't.

It's kinda like looking back on the games of your childhood, sure back then it was the shit.

Nothing stands up to the test of time-- except maybe Pokemon.

Currently playing Mount & Blade again. L'Aigle, a Napoleonic era mod for M&B just came out. Unfortunately it didn't work on my computer, so I'm back to bashing in the brains of vikings and stabbing knights to death in Calradia.

I'm currently trying to get back into the world of Minecraft modpacks (An ill-advised thing to get into but yeah), although I'm having trouble really settling on anything.

On the one hand, Yogscast Complete Pack has a lot of different things to work with and it'd be fun, on the other hand Tekkit doesn't have as much stuff to work with so I don't feel overwhelmed (And I don't feel threatened by magic mods - lookin' at you, Thaumcraft, and your friggin' Tainted Biomes).

On yet another hand, Direwolf20's pack is up to 1.7 and has a lot of cool stuff, including mods that I really really like such as IndustrialCraft and ComputerCraft, and mods I've been curious about trying, like Logistics Pipes and Mystcraft. But in its current state it just crashes if I try and generate a Biomes o' Plenty world with it, which is a bummer.

For me at least the Mass Effect series was awesome and to this day it's still one of my favorite series out there. (Admittedly it's not that old yet, but I don't see any studio impressing me as much anytime soon.) It's slow to start and the ending is a bit of a letdown but the middle of the series really shines, even the redshirts occasional impress you with a character more detailed than some series main characters. A lot of people were let down by the whole "Your actions will effect the outcome of the game" bit, but without going into too much detail some of your actions effect what missions are available in later games, but more often than that they effect how the people around you 'develop' one of the best examples of this is Conrad Verner. On top of that, this is one of the few games I've played that got me to cry over a character's death, I won't say who but you'll know when it happens, you'll know.

There are a lot of places where they could have probably done things better, but there were also probably twice as many places where they did things right and I wish more companies out there could make games as in-depth as this so that I didn't come out when it was over bitching and moaning about how much money I wasted. (And then immediately buy the next game as soon as it's announced.)

The Hardcore skyblock modpack is really fun.

So is Crash Landing on the Feed The Beast, for what little I played on my crappy computer. It's like skyblock where you have little to nothing and make new and more things from what little you have, but on a desert planet thing with an insane mob spawn rate at night. You also have to handle dehydration and temperature, it's easy to die from overheating.

Worst thing about DayZ are those groups of little 14 year old kids who scream WE WONT SHOOT WE WONT SHOOT STAND STILL I WANT TO CHECK YOUR GEAR in poor English.

I turned around all suspense like, and busted out a sudden tune on my harmonica through my microphone. They were so amazed at my spontaneous decision they stood still and began laughing uncontrollably. I then proceeded to take out my AK and shot every single last one of them, whilst laughing like a hyena on crystalline meth and enjoyed all their cans of beans.

Learn to play a harmonica, kids, it'll save your life.



On another note, the previous talk about cool MC Modpacks kind of wants me to get into modded Minecraft once again. I really enjoyed the FTB packs and the Technic Launcher packs with my IRL friends in the past, but sadly they've all stuck to League of Legends. Which is fine for me, I fucking aodre League of Legends (and am the best Kallista EUW).

Any real good modpacks for MC people could recommend to get me back into the groove of minecraft? I'm a guy who likes hard survival based things with a lot of cool add-ons the most.

Primary school teacher. There's a huge difficulty gap between primary/middle, if I tried to teach middle school kids I would fail miserably. The requirements weren't that huge for me because I used to go to the primary (or junior, whatever you wanna call it) school when I was a kid, so the me knowing most of the teachers was a huge bonus. Secondly, most people around the area are super chavvy, making jobs for primary school teachers quite rare. When I turned up, not being a chav and all and having very decent GCSE's and A Levels, they welcomed me with open arms, pretty much.

The pay's alright. And the job's quite fun compared to the other boring options - but yeah. I could never be a middle school teacher; it requires much more qualifications and it's, obviously, a lot harder.

Back on topic, trying MC Modpacking again and doing a Hardcore Agarian Skies playthrough. Which is basically like a super heavily modded version of skyblock which is super cool, having fun with that. Also This War of Mine is a fucking top-quality game, I tell you. Pick it up if you have a few bucks/pounds/pinecones waiting to be spent.

I've heard a lot of good about This War of Mine so I've decided to give it a try.

20 days in and I've gained an additional survivor (there's now four in my group of happy campers), aided a nearby survivor who needed medication for his sick father, prevented a rape by bludgeoning a soldier to death (Boris stronk like bool) with a shovel (that was the most satisfying moment thus far), killed four bandits (those fools brought knives to a gun fight, and Pavle is fast) and freed a hostage in a brutal battle, helped out several neighboring groups of survivors, and have just barely managed to keep everyone from starving by the skin of my teeth. And all with no fatalities. The guy who killed the four bandits ended up hurt pretty severely by the end of that fray, but he's recovering nicely in my basement-level infirmary, and should be on his feet (and ready to spill more bandit blood) again soon.

The game's got a very cool graphical style, and it does a fine job of drilling into you just how desperate and crappy the situation is.

It's also got me reading about the Siege of Sarajevo, so I'm learning stuff as well.

I've already finished This War of Mine for a few times now. It's an amazing game with a good replayability value, but it will inevitably get easy pretty fast when you get the hang of things.

Back on topic, I'm still playing Mass Effect Trilogy (specifically, I barely started the 2nd one), and I already filled my ship with all the minerals I could mine. That, and Mordin Solus is awesome.

Also, Skyrim "Exactly-255-Mods edition". A dark Elf named Crimson, formerly the captain of the Watch of Imperial City (and even more formerly a renown (Chaotic Good) Mercenary and soldier in the Great War), but then framed by the Thalmor for the murder of an important figure and sent to die into an abandoned prison somewhere in Skyrim,which he only managed to escape a month later, (when everyone has already assumed that he was dead (he survived on skeever meat, water dripping from the ceiling of his cell and meditation)), is building up a team to beat those stupid High Elven asses out of Skyrim and restore his former glory. As of now, he only managed to recruit an Altmer Prankster and Illusionist called Rumarin ("Yeah, you're right. I'm an inch shorter than a regular Thalmor agent...*silence* Wait, that came out all wrong!"-Rumarin), and an exiled dunmer leader of the Knights of Thorns and Roses, McForgotHisName, but he still keeps recruiting.

Other games I also play: Door Kickers, Ace of Spades (pre-Steam version) and Project Zomboid (didn't play it for a while now, so I decided to check what's new).

I'm still a fan of rougelikes. I'm currently playing nethack, trying to ascend the dungeon but its a lot harder than cata imo. You cannot sleep, hunger level decreases really fast (like if you were having very fast metabolism trait), items are unknown, must be identified for proper use, everything is unknown to you. NPC shopkeepers are too selfish, enemies that will continue to chase you through multiple dungeon levels, that gnomish mine is a new players' nightmare (it appears on level 2-3 but requires you to be at least level 10), enemies will pick up weapons, use them against you(ever encountered a gnome with a wand of death?), quests are tough but the rewards are good. In my opinion its one of the most hard rougelikes I've played, I still suck at it though, never descended farther than level 15. It has many things packed in it, but most of them are unknown and must be learned through practical experience.

Angband is much easier but I don't play it cause it kind of sucks with its maze like random-dungeons (the dungeons are randomly generated each time you enter a level). Mining is awesome though, not like nethack where you can die of hunger mining a single level. Hunger level decreases realistically, light sources, artifacts, new races are the things that I would like to have in nethack. But its a little bit boring and easy than nethack. I once got some cool fire dagger artifact, made it to the level 10, got killed by some creature I'll never actually know. Never played ADOM though (thought it was proprietary or something), Rouge, the original game sucks in almost all fields but we must give credit to it for all these rougelikes.

But one thing that makes these games better than cataclysm dda is that they are much easier to learn. I mean they come with a good quality spoiler-free manual which will teach you everything about the game (if you're motivated enough), the wikis are awesome, they contain lots of useful information unlike the wiki of cataclysm which is still not updated and it does not have some good editing tutorials which are required for a informative player to edit the wiki. Cataclysm lacks in these fields, I actually had never played it if I had not played nethack before because it didn't have any kind of manual or guide along with it. The "how to survive first day" guide was good but you must learn to play cata yourself, by trying and dying and then trying again, learning new stuff, strategy etc. Cataclysm is maturing fast, lots of new features get added in each version, its nice to see a futuristic rougelike to have made this far. Keep it up devs, cata is the best rougelike I've played yet.

Btw, GTA and AC are the series that I used to like in the tps games series. Never played ahead AC3 and gta4 though, I've left those games behind but it seems that new once are appearing. Call of Duty was a good fps game but like others I never played again after completing the black ops part. Team Fortress 2 and CS were good for multiplayer, played a lot of those in the past. There are a lots of those around the market. I'll play those newly released ones after I get some time to spare.

I've heard a lot of good about This War of Mine so I've decided to give it a try.

20 days in and I've gained an additional survivor (there's now four in my group of happy campers), aided a nearby survivor who needed medication for his sick father, prevented a rape by bludgeoning a soldier to death (Boris stronk like bool) with a shovel (that was the most satisfying moment thus far), killed four bandits (those fools brought knives to a gun fight, and Pavle is fast) and freed a hostage in a brutal battle, helped out several neighboring groups of survivors, and have just barely managed to keep everyone from starving by the skin of my teeth. And all with no fatalities. The guy who killed the four bandits ended up hurt pretty severely by the end of that fray, but he's recovering nicely in my basement-level infirmary, and should be on his feet (and ready to spill more bandit blood) again soon.

The game's got a very cool graphical style, and it does a fine job of drilling into you just how desperate and crappy the situation is.

It's also got me reading about the Siege of Sarajevo, so I'm learning stuff as well.

So on Rivet's word alone I bought This War Of Mine and I gotta be honest, I'm thoroughly impressed. I'm only seven and a half days in, but I'm thoroughly invested, might actually end up skipping out on Battlefield tonight for this. The scavenging returns aren't high enough to grant easy-mode on day one, but not so skimp it's unplayable. Got my first additional survivor, and now I'm a bit attached to him simply because he works night-stock, and is also slow but strong.

I might actually get sad if/when he dies.

That's what I love about This War of Mine. You really begin to get attached to your survivors, and when they're depressed you become depressed yourself. When you know you're only going to have the food to feed two people, you become really guilty of letting the others go hungry - which is what makes the game really exquisite. No other game has actually made me feel bad about killing others for your own personal gains.

Bruno's real good dude to start with, and I was delighted when Marlin shown up at my front door. His building cost reductions are fricking amazing.

So, after finding out about the "incremental games" genre in the Mobile Games thread, I looked around for more games and found one that's called "Cookie Clicker". God dang, this game is annoyingly addicting, I just can't stop clicking! Also, I really like the touch that the news get progressively shady as you get more and more cookies for your ultimate world domination plan.

And seriously, what's wrong with the grandmas in this game? (Look at the top of the screen, at the news bar):

That moment in Far Cry 3 where you realize you've made what was once a semi civilized person into a Rambo fueled by drugs and burning weed fields with a flame thrower while blowing up bears and tigers with C4 and burning what was probably someones house down with a molotov while shooting RPGs at the nearest oncoming vehicle until you realize the grenade launcher is the better choice between your two choices of explosive weapons.
...yeah....still going to wait to buy Far Cry (the expansion pack) 4....seriously from what I've looked at it's 3 but with more guns and gives you the wing suit sooner then about 2/3rds through the game, and it's got some nice new systems. But for now I'm satisfied with my current version of 'Drug infused Rambo'.

I've already finished This War of Mine for a few times now. It's an amazing game with a good replayability value, but it will inevitably get easy pretty fast when you get the hang of things.

Back on topic, I'm still playing Mass Effect Trilogy (specifically, I barely started the 2nd one), and I already filled my ship with all the minerals I could mine. That, and Mordin Solus is awesome.

Also, Skyrim "Exactly-255-Mods edition". A dark Elf named Crimson, formerly the captain of the Watch of Imperial City (and even more formerly a renown (Chaotic Good) Mercenary and soldier in the Great War), but then framed by the Thalmor for the murder of an important figure and sent to die into an abandoned prison somewhere in Skyrim,which he only managed to escape a month later, (when everyone has already assumed that he was dead (he survived on skeever meat, water dripping from the ceiling of his cell and meditation)), is building up a team to beat those stupid High Elven asses out of Skyrim and restore his former glory. As of now, he only managed to recruit an Altmer Prankster and Illusionist called Rumarin ("Yeah, you're right. I'm an inch shorter than a regular Thalmor agent...*silence* Wait, that came out all wrong!"-Rumarin), and an exiled dunmer leader of the Knights of Thorns and Roses, McForgotHisName, but he still keeps recruiting.

Other games I also play: Door Kickers, Ace of Spades (pre-Steam version) and Project Zomboid (didn't play it for a while now, so I decided to check what's new).
you play the old ace of spades as well? Nice, although it is called build and shoot now..... Wanna play it?

I got motion sickness so bad I was on my side, clutching my trash can and crying in a desperate attempt to make the world stop spinning so fast. Sadly clinging to the trash can is not the same as becoming a fixed, immobile point in the universe.

Perigrin, I would like to play some rounds in Build and Shoot, but I fear that our schedules might be very different. I live in UK, and I only get the chance to play during weekends (too much work to do during the normal days) and only at night (between 9 pm. and 12 am.) and early in the morning (around 4 and 7 am.).
BUT ANYWAYS, if you still somehow manage to find me, I usually hang out in the Aloha servers (although not very often, since it lags too much on my machine) and the european ones (usually british and german). My nickname is the same as the one in this forum, "Aravhorn".

Glad to hear it. Personally I abhor using jets, mostly because I can't fly them. I'm decent with Helicopters, still pretty poor compared to the guys who really know how to use them. That's probably why I love using a stinger on said expert pilots and watching them jump out of their heli that is now going out of control.
Gotta say I'd enjoy the game a lot more if I didn't end up on the receiving end of some serious Desync issues, as is I'm hoping Hardline will fix all the netcode and other issues BF4 seems to have.

I'm well aware, I just keep them there because they give more cookies than they steal. Because of how the code works, a full ring of wrinklers multiplies production by 6. Popping my wrinklers got me from 1 nonillion to 5.5 nonillion.

Each wrinkler gives back 5% of what all wrinklers steal. That means they each give back 50% CPS when popped, which adds up to x5, in addition to what was stolen and given back plus what you make already is x6.

Crusader Kings 2 again because I love being a Norwegian lesbian viking warrior princess called Xena.

I play CK2 probably every day! It's one of the best games ever made, IMO, if you're a fan of the middle ages, feudal life, or just strategy in general.

My current game:

(click to show/hide)

The Matriarchy is an Enatic Elective empire, having spread first from Dublin, to uniting Ireland, to conquering Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Britain, 90% of Scandinavia, and bits and pieces of other realms. Only women can inherit titles, thought there are some men who do hold the occasional title. The current Empress is the granddaughter of one of the greatest warrior-queens of all time, Sofia of Friuli, a large, angry German who I had  married into the Irish dynasty and then granted the title of Queen of England (Sasana, in Irish).

Currently there's a dearth of warriors in the family; for the most part it's all diplomats, though a bit of Sofia's legacy still sticks around in high-Martial rulers of England, who I use mostly as trusted generals. Every Duchy and Kingdom is ruled by a family member or a bastard of the family, and about 90% are women.

Enatic Elective is really interesting (it's just a few seconds modding to enable the anachronistic Enatic succession); the rulership of the Empire is fairly spastic and I don't have much control over who inherits, but it's always a female family member and usually a Queen, so I'm pretty happy regardless of the outcome. I've been trying to get a high-Martial queen to take over so I can continue conquering the mainland (damned Karlings!) but for the moment the Empire is pretty stable. Still trying to wipe out the last traces of the Norse (damned raiders!), but they're stubborn as hell and hard to drive out.

What a fun game.

The Queen of Olde Englande, Sofie the German. Well, she started out German, then somehow during her life ended up in Anglo-Saxon England, which I conquered. She stuck around my court and a legend was born!

The laws of The Matriarchy - Eventually I'd like to switch to Imperial Administration but it's not a priority right now. The feudal lords are treated well, the realm is stable, and there's yet to be even a single civil war or even large-scale rebellion.

Of the 3 elected Queens, I voted first for the 3rd one -- she's my last Empress's daughter and rules all of Norway, she was the last person Sofia of England mentored and her Martial skill is 20... but much to my chagrin she decided to marry a horrible Norse lad and became Norse herself, so the good stout Irish electors really dislike her. So instead of throwing my vote away I voted for the 2nd Queen, Be-Feil of Ireland; she's got excellent stats, but my vassals all want the Queen of Alba, Euginia, instead. Oh well!

Unfortunately women cannot take concubines! I think it's hardcoded. All I can really do is keep him in jail until he dies. Besides which, only certain religions can do it and none of the Christian ones (Catharism included) can.

Oh, and one more screenshot:

This guy was a single Temple vassal of Lotharingia in Italy and declared a rebellion (against the largest single kingdom in Europe, by himself, as seen in the map on last page). He fought one battle against Valeran 'The Wise' Karling, captured Valeran in battle, and insta-won the entire rebellion. Now Italy and Lotharingia are split and this bishop has a title I've never actually seen before, because bishops aren't actually supposed to be able to own Kingdoms... Weird! I think capturing the Pope drove all the Catholics insane.

No sceenies yet... but...

I've started a kingdom in Ireland that I quickly renamed Lordran. I married someone who is possibly my cousin, had two epic sons that I've named Gywndolin and Solaire respectively. I started a conspiracy against the nearby kingdom by fabricating claims on his land, and starting an assassination plot against him.

His wife, gay lover, several of his nobles, and a few military men are in on the plot. I expect to murder him sometime tonight.

I will have some screenshots of it with the carnage hopefully being entertaining enough.

This is my first real playthrough of the game, the last playthroughs were just getting the game to work on my shitty laptop. I have a real computer and learned all the mechanics on my own, reading those little tooltips give you just enough info to work with, I'm doing this Dwarf Fortress style.

Fuck. I'll upload the screenshots of what happened but man I need to cool off.

My assassination plan went off without a hitch, but some random fuck took the throne from me. Everyone loves this guy so an assassination plot was out of the question.

So I declare war on him and kick his ass, I didn't have enough men to capture the city and turn it into a "puppet" town that would generate me cash. So It was just a long game of tug or war.

I had finally raised enough troops to capture the town and claim the land, but then his big brother shows up with his 2000-something army and wipes my guys out. Infuriated by this, and remembering that I have his daughter prisoner at the young age of 7. I decided to execute her, my Piety is higher than the Pope's so I could get away with it.

Why didn't I turn her into a concubine? Because I probably won't live to see that year 1000, due to the armies knocking at my doors.

Saints Row IV was fucking metal. I've got Gat Out of Hell on my wishlist, but Steam has trained me to compulsively wait for sales, but at least that's somewhere up there with death and taxes on the inevitability scale.

I've actually been playing a lot of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate lately; looking forward to the fourth generation's release stateside this month. Also looking forward to Darkest Dungeon; that game looks awesome.

I've haven't really been a fan of the Dead Island games, not since the first. Dying Light reminds me a ton of Dead Island only with more mobility.

Honestly, I'm just going to see how Dead Island 2 turns out.

Other then that, I've been waiting to play the BETA of Battlefield: Hardline; I'm really skeptical of that game, it might be good. But right now it looks like what Tactical Insertion tried to be.

Post by: Abbysynth on February 06, 2015, 07:56:34 PM
Hah, thanks! I play maybe an hour or so each day if I can find the time, but often I think of something really fun and then abandon the current game. This time at least I'm sticking with it, mostly because so far it's one of my most fun playthroughs!


The date is now 1032, and the Empire has survived nearly 200 years without a single rebellion or civil war, which is pretty much unheard of in CK2 for larger empires. I did have to grant some concessions to the feudal ladies at one point when they demanded I drop down to medium crown authority, which strongly limits the changes I can make to the laws, but a civil war at this point would tear the entire Empire apart since just about everyone is related.

Here's some more screenshots!

(click to show/hide)

The Empress of the Matriarchy, Cairech the Confessor. She's ruled only for 11 years, having acquired the throne when her predecessor, Caintigern (with 22 diplomatic score!) died unexpectedly of natural causes at age 50. Cairech's economical skills are extraordinary and has allowed the Empire to stockpile a very large treasury, at the expense of just about everything else though. Her diplomacy skills are abysmal and has been the cause of a lot of problems during her reign. She and her husband are rivals and have hated each other for like 50 years straight (-100 relation).

(click to show/hide)

Fedelm of Champagne, the next in line for the grand title. She certainly wasn't my first choice (my Queens insisted on voting her in no matter how much I bribed them), but she's the daughter of Caintigern and her skills are acceptable, so no complaints from me.

(click to show/hide)

One of the last remaining Catholic areas west of Aquitaine is a small area in northern Spain. This guy lives there. I've never actually seen that effect before but I assume it's a Joan of Arc-style Possession-trait effect. Pretty awesome. I wish he'd come live in the Empire but blehh. Catholics.

(click to show/hide)

The state of the Crown Laws currently in effect. I had to reduce both Crown Authority and Centralization during Cairech's reign as her vassals keep getting uppity due to her low Diplomacy score, and the rapid imperial expansion has left me hitting the max vassal ceiling constantly. Not really worth worrying about.

(click to show/hide)

My main war general and general badass. She's one of the descendants of Sofie von Friuli. She hates Cairech, mostly because of the Ambitious trait. I voted for her a few times to inherit the Empire but the other vassals find her obnoxious.

(click to show/hide)

The current state of the Empire. Current main threats and enemies are the Umayyads in Spain, the last Catholic Kingdoms of Aquitaine, Italy, Burgundy and Bavaria (the latter two are still ruled by the hated Karlings), and the pagan kingdoms of Pomerania, Hungary, and Suomi. The Abassid Caliphate also has crept into Sicily, so I may have to turn my attention southwards at some point. For now, I'm happy wiping the last of the Catholics off the face of the Earth. Brittany and Leon are both Cathar, so I can't just declare holy wars on them unfortunately.

Nifty setting, pain in the ass having to level three times before I could meaningfully advance.  "OK, you just got your stat high enough to be allowed to buy a point of skill, next level.  OK, you got your skill high enough to buy a point in a tech discipine, next level.  OK, you bought a point in a tech discipline, too bad it wasn't the one that lets you make the endgame stat booster, sucks to be you."

(Don't waste time maxing electricity: the Tesla Staff is worthless IME.  Armor's kinda OK.  Get first or second-level pharma or whatever it was, though, as a low-level recipe there is mandatory for the vivifier.  "Lost Forever Thanks To Level Cap" trumps "OMGSpoiler!".)

most of my experience thus far is me trying to break the game in the best ways possible. You know how at chargen you have a limited number of stat points? No longer, just get every stat to 75 and d press either the U or H keys, boom, free stat points.

I always go high elves (although elves are evil in all RPG's and must be smitten) because paralysis is a pain in the ass, cure paralysis potions are the best troll item in a game ever as you can't use them whilst paralyzed XD.

But yeah that game has to many many broken ways to beat it I could sit here all morning and reference them (waiting in shops to rob them, creating items and selling them via magic, clipping through staircases to enter the void in dungeons etc.) but despite its many and I mean MANY bugs, its a good game. Except the dungeons sometimes. They are a pain in the ass.

I really don't know why I love it still, but I do. Maybe its rose tinted nostalgia but it really encapsulates the do what you want essence very well, something a lot of games struggle to do well and when I was twelve odd Lysandus was TERRIFYING! Vengenceeeee.

Also, the one bar in the settlement The Rusty Ogre Lodge has a high chance to Gen daedric weapons, the gaurds can't climb the stairs to you, and reloading a save regens all of the loot in a chest, with you having a higher and higher chance of daedric gear each time. I'd you buy a cart and recall scroll before hand, we are talking several MILLION in gold of gear you won't use, and one really great weapon you will use.

DLCday2 Payday 2, I'm having the time of my life since I got it to work... but I do have some complaints.

It seems like everything is locked behind a goddamn pay-wall. I went to look at all the weapons you could get, only to find out that half of them are apart of some DLCs. I unlock some weapon parts, well fuck you, you get some DLC parts you can't use instead.

I don't know what heists I can and can't play, because my Hotline Miami DLC heists never appear on Crime.net. I know I'm still a little "heister" (level 6), but I've already done some perfect stealth runs and made bank. But sadly nothing I want is affordable, and all the DLC I could buy... if I payed for it IRL.

Oh well, I'm probably going to go stick up a Night Club tonight or play some Space Station 13.

Get to cover, move carefully - adjust your aim for wind, and spend every second, every step knowing that your enemy could be watching you through the crosshair of their scope as you walk, waiting to get that one headshot on you.

Punishing, fun, and rewarding multiplayer where only the smart will survive. Finally. A multiplayer shooter that I can actually enjoy, and one where little kids aren't spamming the mic whilst miraculously lunging through the map and one-shot-meleeing you. (cod)

Yeah, a lot of the weapons are DLC, which is frustrating but kind of understandable. I think having at least one weapon in each class available to buy for people who only have the base game would be a good idea, but as is if you want a LMG or Sniper you need to pay five bucks, or wait for a sale when they're usually around two or three, and thats just weapons.
As is I only really use Historical, Gage pack 2, Gage Courier pack(I highly reccomend), and the one or two mission DLCs that I have, shot gun was a waste since the guns feel like copies of existing ones and the shells feel weak.
If you spot an open match playing a DLC mission you can join it, since only one person needs to have a mission DLC for a group to play it.
And yeah, for low level it does take a while to afford stuff, even skills... but after a while you get to the point of being able to buy pretty much whatever you want, it just takes a while.
And for the getting DLC weapon parts you can't use, unfortunately that does happen, it's frustrating. I'm still trying to get some stuff for my Typewriter SMG, have been for over a month. I've got some pistol pieces I'll never use, I've got a ton of stuff for a rifle I abhor.
Of course, I'm the guy who will do a string of Death Wish missions because he thinks it's fun, and doesn't mind getting owned by a dozer if he deserved it. I'm also the guy who pops into a low level match to help out new players and try to help them level, so long as they don't sit there and expect me to do everything. I guess some people expect the lvl 100 to do a bank job by himself, which doesn't work, you need a team that will co operate with you at least minorly (IE: they shoot the bad(...well not really the bad guys...because you know their cops...) guys and put down stuff when you ask them to).

Also, you can send Holy Priests into brothels. Sent one in, and they demanded two because it had been a 'rough day'. Priest came back out with an STD. Best game ever 1337/10

...yeah, If I'm gonna fly someone else gets to drive. And key words are Think and Decently. I'm no expert, and in fact I crash quite a bit, but I've got the landings down...well to the point where the ship doesn't take much if any damage. My biggest problem is that I can't turn the ship on it's side (if this makes sense) with out it going crazy, same with turning it up and down.
Thus why I'm only decent with the transport, since it has descend and ascending without me having to do either of those.

Never played Dark Legacy, but I remember the original Gauntlet fondly. It had a really atmospheric tune on the attract screen, and was a lot of fun!

Played the crap out of Legends as well. One night two of my friends and I poured about a hundred bucks in quarters in that game and managed to beat it - full ending, collected all the stones, killed Skorne, got the special 'you beat the game' contest screen - using a wizard, an archer, and a valkyrie (me). We were super drunk, and the folks walking past us must've thought we were nuts, as we got so into it we were hollering weird stuff at each other and the screen.

Our scores stayed on the top of the high score screen (complete with little marks to indicate that we'd beaten it) for about a year before they got rid of the cabinet.

Good times.

Uh, I didn't, this was on a gamecube.  Sorry.

Rivet, DL is pretty much Legends with a little bit of tweaking and kinda glitchy in places thanks to gamecube.  Nice job investing all the quarters--last I did that was ages ago on an X-men cabinet.  And we got Not The Real Ending!d.  :-(

A good view of my entire city.

The districts I use are basically seperate subdivisions. I view them sort of as squabbling feudal lords, expanding their territory. Some are specialized territory; Chester Heights at the bottom of the map is a small farming community.

Funny enough I found that on accident, I'm going with USSR tanks and German Planes.

I did find the t-34-57 is a bit of a meh because he faces M6, Tigers, JadgpanzersIV and (uh) Kv-2. I'm just halfway to get the T-34-85

I've only read over the past few pages but I can agree with Cities:Skylines being pretty damn good. I also have been wanting to jump into Pillars of Eternity for some time now but not having the time to devote to it yet. I have went back and have been playing Tales of Maj'Eyal a lot in the past few weeks and can recommend it very much so especially with the prices it has been being sold at recently. I think Dark God could be selling this game at a bit higher price, but he has his own philosophy about that I think (and he puts loads of love into this game, so go out and buy this people!)

The last one's particularly amazing, though it has a funny deployment / install routine, and seeks an internet connection even though the setup process ended; my best guess is that there's a shadowed auto-update feature. On the other hand, online play is great, just as it ever was.

Ananias is getting better with each day of its active development, and I'm just thrilled about Incursion updates.

I've been goofing off with more zombie games in an attempt to rekindle my desire to hop into Cataclysm again. Unturned is really super fun, especially if you've got a group of friends to work with and build a fort.

I also decided to take a look at Project Zomboid as it's been a long time since I bought it, and it's challenging but I'm getting somewhere with it. Speaking of which, Zomboid actually gave a shoutout to Cataclysm earlier this year - they introduced custom challenge scenarios to the game, and the first one they made for testing is called "A Really CD DA" - You start out having just taken a nasty fall out of your shower. You're badly wounded, naked, blind drunk, and you've got a cold. And the house is on fire.

Say what you will about Project Zomboid, I'm just really delighted to see fellow zombie survival games giving Cata a shoutout.

Apart from all that, I recently picked up Duck Game. Duck Game is an experience, and it's thoroughly enjoyable with friends. Everything happens so quickly, you have no time to be mad at losing because you're too busy laughing about what just transpired in the latest round.

Was playing X-COM Enemy Within, then my squad got wiped on the first Council mission involving EXALT. So many Thin Mints man, prospects look grim for the squad of rookies I'm gonna have to field at the next crash site. I'm also screwing around in Planetside 2 again, a Medic's job is never done no matter your faction affliation.

Still finishing the Mass Effect series, mostly because I've got one each paragon and now renegade playthrough to just CALL IT FUCKING DONE. 2's done. Halfway finished with 3.

Once that's over with, do I complete Amnesia: Dark Descent, or the third-party Half life remake, Black Mesa: Source?

Keeping in mind if S.T.A.L.K.E.R. goes on sale for over 70% off, I will be purchasing and completing that next, instead. I have a lot of old game ground to cover.

I already mentioned that I've been hooked on Unturned, so here's a couple of goofy comics I did regarding that game, specifically some of the weapons you can make in crafting that are... far more effective than they probably should be (But that's what makes them fun).

These comics feature my general-purpose 'sona Chaz Serir, and a friend's character, Gansir Beeb.

The latter was drawn after FireAlpaca had an update that allowed comic panel borders to be a thing. Best update to any free art program ever.

(I've got a little Unturned playlist going on while I figure out Sony Movie Studio 13, FYI. \o/ (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9mHXTw4uk0RB_SsijDIJ68l7xE0qT8Pn))

Apart from that, still pretty hooked on Duck Game. Wonderfully funny, also very addictive music and I want to throw money at the devs for a copy of the soundtrack.

Don't worry, if your experience is anything like mine one of three things will happen:

1: You'll cave and look up the solution online, then face-palm at the realization of just how much you were over-thinking the puzzle.
2: You'll cave and enable sv_cheats, then noclip around in a pathetic attempt to figure the puzzle out before just cheating and moving on.
3: You'll quit.

Or, if your going for the full "Space snake experience" you'll do them in that order, then go play something else until the power goes out.

I stay up until 3am and did indeed look up the solution, but only for 2 of the many puzzles I've completed so far. As it turns out, I was not overthinking things. I actually had the right idea but didn't execute it properly, and thus led myself to believe that was not the intended solution and moved on to the next idea. I lacked finesse, not the solution.

The other one involved misunderstanding that propulsion gel accelerates you identically to falling. I thought it was somewhat less effective than a sheer drop. They are BOTH in fact, a 1:1 ratio of speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out.


Then I went to work and solved a puzzle involving four cases of potatos, a conveyor belt, a large crushing machine, and a very late holiday pay bonus.

I would suggest replaying a few of the portal 1 and 2 levels, just to refresh yourself on all the tricks at your disposal for problem solving. Mel may not be Chell, but her story assumes you know everything you've learned as the latter. It does not introduce you gently to the puzzles.

The time limits that may or may not be in some of the levels may or may not be like the cake. Which also may or may not be.

So I modded FallOff The Wagon 3. The survival/food/needs/combat/drugs overhauls have ensured I'm about as likely to die of malnutrition as I am to weather, npcs with mininukes, food poisoning, radiation, and trying to walk with crippled legs.

Modded it. Modded the fuck out of everything. I fuckin' love getting a bunch of mods to play nice together. If I can't aim, it's because I'm drunk from trying to lower my rads the cheap way, and attempting to fire a gun with two broken arms. ...I should probably invest in more medical braces so I can un-fuck said arms.

Lots of good memories there.

I've been Storytelling my current V:tM (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vampire:_The_Masquerade) (revised) game for about a year now - set in a post-Gehenna period that reads like the Metro games but with the addition of lots of mindless, feral vampires.

Ooh, I forgot about the Masquerade! Last time I played anything White Wolf, I think it was Changeling: the lost? I vaguely recall being a WWI soldier who got very very lost, and returned to the present world made mostly of brass and clockwork.


My DM is burning himself out running epic grand adventures that last us years. We play every other saturday and it's too damn slow. We have to constantly fill in absent players on what happened. The DM has to plan all sorts of world details in case we decide to do a thing.

The new method involves one plot arc as a self-contained campaign that runs about a month, each saturday. Whoever's available that time plays. We cut out whole sessions wasted buying/selling loot in town, and more time with the good rp parts and combat/adventure. Plot concludes, we discuss where we wanna go next, and the DM will only build that section of the world. We might not play D&D for a month or two - whatever is needed for the players to find a chunk of freetime again. Less taxed DM, less chance of players missing plot-relevant details, and it won't haunt them for 3 years if they do.


SO MUCH BETTER.

You should download a program called Vassal, as well as the Warhammer 40k mod for it. It's what I use to play 40k with people from all over the world. You should send me a message with your skype if you'd like to try it out.

Here's Vassal: http://www.vassalengine.org/

Here's the 40k Mod for Vassal: http://vassal40k.tripod.com/
Just beware that it's old, and hasn't been updated past 6th edition. So for a few newer things you'll need to use proxies.

And finally, all of the digital versions of the codexes can be found here, if you don't already have the rulebook and codex for the army you want to play. https://mega.nz/#F!pFgm0RKR!J06C1gVYcjzNGsF8YNLsjQ

Oh, and my skype is hellfire583 if you want to talk. The game goes a lot better if the moves are called out over voice rather than text.

I WANT TO BE YOU. I tried to do shenannigans like that, but my mod-stack actually prevents me from becoming the Batman.

So I use some scoped rifle I found instead, and a shitload of drugs to steady my hands. I may be playing a diazepam addict but damn if he isn't the best at what he does.

And what he does is drugs. Also justice. But my justice, not just the one that scores me karma. My mods no longer report what actions give/take karma, so I'm flying by my instincts instead.

Okay the flying is definitely the drugs talking. Fuuuuuck it needs to be release day for the next damn game

I like the Witcher 2. It's a great game, but I just can't get the hang of it.
It's just... too open. Too many railroading RPGs and sandbox games I guess.

Seriously, the atmosphere is perfect. The voice acting is pretty good as well-- and it doesn't skimp on the comedy either (I mean, you are supposed to laugh at the hilariously bad ye oldé inglush aksunt, right?)


Reminds me of dragon age, but I hated dragon age. Character interaction wasn't too bad, but the plot felt cliche.
Gameplay really wasn't balanced for warriors either-- but then running the spellsword class or bloodmage was essentially easymode. Also the party social system felt insane at times.

It's a shame because BioWare do some good RPGs. NWN and hordes of the underdark was fantastic and NWN2... Well, Neeskha ♥

I've gotten to used to CDDA's roguelike player-punishment. Fallout 4 is too damn nice to me.


By the time you guys can afford to play/I sell my computer off to one of yous (sorry, still using it for the forseeable future), they'll have a zillion survival overhaul mods for the PC so you can actually have a challenge besides "where's the quest marker on my map?"

I realize this really doesn't justify as a complaint on my part. But I will indeed dig through older computers in this home and see if any have relevant graphics cards or are useful as-is for someone needing a better rig. I have doubts anything will be useful but I'll take a look!

Ugh, so most of the computing devices we have that might play things have been taken by my youngest bro since he's in university now.

And the graphics cards on our home pc's are ....actually older than the GT 600 series. Fuckin'. I'm sorry about that. I think I got something helpful for folks and none of the shit I thought we had is here any more. My dad probably took the stuff back to his workplace rather than sell it for money.



Lame. I'm kind of disappointed.

Turns out my ASUS seems to have the company-secret bullshit problem of spontaneously losing power (I'm led to believe it's either a motherboard flaw or something related to how the power source is handled.) So until I learn to trust this machine for long stints of gameplay, I'm kind of experiencing shit creek right here with ya man :(
Title: Re: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Iosyn on November 23, 2015, 08:35:26 AM
...Wait holy shit, you have that problem too?
My AMD mobo drops power sometimes too. an MSI make, I think.
I assumed it was a faulty memory module or a loose connection somewhere.
It doesn't happen very often (sometimes two, three times a day, other times... nothing for months. considering it's usually on for 9+ hours, it's more annoying than problematic.) Each time it happens I swear I'll replace the memory and I never do.

My other thought was the PSU-- it would be running close to max wattage when I bought it anyway and they do loose some capacity after a while.



Anyway, FUCK. Settlement invasions are simple as hell the entire game and then suddenly-- BAM.
Super mutant masters with miniguns, rocket launchers and super sledges.
Had to pop some psycho, jet and med-x to get through that one.

Code: [Select]
>Blast supersledge guy:: He dies
>Flank minigun guy:: He dies :: Three SnM Masters blat me with rockets
return to start;

> hide behind cover
> Missiles are still AoE
return to start;

>Rush missile guys, hide behind cover in a lucky guard tower, ZA WARUDO with Jet
>Minigun guy guns me down from behind
return to start;
If I had my fat man, I would have used it. Fields of crops and settlers be damned.

Luckily my companion keeps a Quick-draw, quad-barrel, stabilized, missile launcher with a FoF targetting computer on hand for just this kind of NOPE.jpeg moment. You have no idea how handy that thing was. but seriously, I just stepped out of my power armour for a moment and this kind of thing happens to me.

First thing I do when I've re-established a supply line is to install a wall around the entire compound, line it with missile turrets as opposed to the shitty MG ones I've been using, then fill the settlement with artillery. There's a supermutant hive nearby and it seems it may need to be cleared out once again.

Okay so remind me not to establish any more settlements that sounds like pure madness and I haven't even made it to Diamond City yet due to Sanctuary being so god damned buildable.
I love making towns and stuff! It's what I love about minecraft! ...I do not like micromanaging idiot peons who I can't tell is assigned to what, and randomly all my goodness gets destroyed and I have to count numbers and earn resources just to place crap. That is why I don't like the Sims and housefires.



Ah well.

http://www.tomsguide.com/answers/id-1768191/asus-g75-randomly-cutting-power.html

The power loss error I experience is ...pretty well documented by an angry section of the Asus using community. Read through that thread and see if that problem sounds like yours, I don't know how much of it is relevant since your build is different, but they've made some interesting headway for those with daily issues by underclocking their computers slightly.

Post by: Logrin on November 30, 2015, 04:00:05 PM
I usually just designate a few settlements as 'salvage hubs', making them well defended ghettos full of scavenger's stations. I funnel people in from the good settlements and import all the food and water from elsewhere. with 60+ settlers doing the work for you across three settlements resources aren't too thin until you get into megaprojects. The baseball nut in diamond city sells shipments of wood--which is precious seeing as you inexplicably cannot build metal floors.

Naturally I used a glitch (being on console) to exceed the build limit for a particular farm homesteaded beneath a massive powerline tower to make an apartment complex.

Burned out on Fallout 4 a few days ago. Don't worry @Pthalocy it's not that bad-- that was just one attack. Most of my other settlements tend to repel attacks pretty easily.

I've now colonized every single settlement bar 1 I've just found (and possibly one more... Also I've yet to hit the plot quest that gives me control of bunker hill, although murdering everyone there and force a... hostile takeover... might be viable. Seriously considering it, because I had to colonize one half of the map to get a decent supply line to the castle.)

Unfortunately due to owning so many settlements I frequently get attacked at two of them at once-- and then usually another attack just after I've finished defending those-- and if you miss the dialog box you might not have time to attend both attacks.

Also you should really scout around during the attacks-- I've noticed the completion dialog come up from the settlers and yet still fail on fast travel out due to some lone ghoul or something standing around. Kinda sucks when you've got so many turrets and guards that they could easily wipe out half of boston.


Also holy hell. Those missile turrets are insane. Rapid fire missiles. Just watched a raider walk into one of my settlements.
Turret fires four missiles before the guard can even raise his rifle.

He learns fast! It's fun.

Less fun, was deleting the 400 autosaves friend alex also sent me. I accidentally deleted my main character in that process. I am level five again now. All my mods are stable though! So that is good.
Time to re-rebuild sanctuary lmfao. And holy SHIT I made radstorms way more dangerous. Had to sprint line an idiot into the nearest town and scrounge up a building with a fucking interior.

Barely made it to safety with 4hp to my name due to radiation sickness. WOW.

more frequent and more dangerous radstorms sounds fun. I can't find any buildings that actually shield me from the rads though-- can't even make one that protects me from it. Open stairs to the roof might be a problem I guess.


Anyway: Playing distant worlds right now.
Or rather, it's playing itself. Fully automated play.
A gas mining station just fought off a pretty nasty pirate raid-- especially since pirates have tech about two to three times better than my own.
 Home fleet is currently on-route to try and capture the wounded ships that survived-- if we can capture them we can reverse engineer their stuff and hopefully get some new tech to bring us out of the stone ages of stellar travel.

First fleet is... blockading a nearby independent planet. Not sure why, they're decent trading partners.

Post by: Pthalocy on December 06, 2015, 05:28:50 PM
It's gotta be a building with a loadscreen in order to stop the radstorms: I found that a bit odd, but when I encountered the problem, I was at the red rocket truckstop - sure it's a damn tin can but it's got more holes in it than I do after a raider fight. Hilariously, I forgot about the molerat home right under the darn truckstop, and ran for concord instead. Silly me. The rats might've killed me in that state, though.



I know there's a cellar turned prepper hidey hole under one of the homes in sanctuary too, so I intend to use that for cover if a radstorm hits while I'm building up home.

So I decided that forget waiting for that silly update for the mongols ai fix and the whole 'sudden' EU4 retreat mechanics, I wanted to play this for again for quite awhile now.  No, tbh, I wanted to play Rome Total Realism, I just absolutely do not have the time or ultimately the patience to complete a long campaign in that as a non-roman.  Even as a roman I rushed the end of it by blatently overlooking settlements to take the last required settlement: Jerusalem.  omg all of the cities and all of the stacks, and even small battles take like 30minutes.  The larger ones are ironically quicker than some of the smaller ones and occassionally the ai bugs out and urrgh the ai was never fantastic to begin with.


- - - - -
NEwho, CKII.

I load up a charlemagne start, as the modest chief of Scavola.  If you don't know where that is its because its unimportant and tiny and in that start extra weak.  I custom made a character and replaced the brother of the high chief of curonia who held my duchy which was adjacent.  It put him into a position of power.  If you still need help, imagne Lithuania.  If you still need help imagining where, imagine the northernmost part of lithuania, nestled against kingdom of Finland and Empire of Rus.

With a whooping 331 troops, I began the game with zero power, zero ability to dow neighbors, and in fact one of the weakest powers in the game.  Even the other chief in my duchy had 650 troops.  Since I rolled a decent intrique character I began spying and rumor spreading and plotting, stressing out the high chief Penikis.

His stress ate him up and he died, leaving the other chief in charge.  However, due to his sudden inheritence and his lazy, gluttenous nature he was disliked by most of his non-councilors.  So we plotted.  And he had no hier, making me next in line.
  And he asked me very politely to stop.  And I did.  For 3 months.
  And he asked me to stop agains.  And I did.  Until I got the rumors off on him and exposed his aldutressy ways.  His wife and his concubine got pissed at him because I caught him sleeping around so much.  He even tried to dip his toe into my courtiers.

His wife died in childbirth, giving him a son.  Damn.
  But, his new wife was an astounding spy.  And he pissed her off by sleeping around.  At that point she offered us 250% plot power in addittion to our own 150%.  He was dead within a month after she joined.

His son, the 0 year old, was a pretty easy kill as most children are.  Youre established, you have enough money to bribe people, he cant stop it.

Inheriting the high chiefdom with no direct vassals save the temple priests, I began by eatting up mainland Finland.  With their power I had the definitive advantage I needed to constantly press into my fellow Lithuanians, uniting the country and forming my Kingdom.  Which ironically was formed using the plot instead of the proper channels.  Oops, I created the Kingdom of Samogitia instead of Lithuania.

With this power and a wife, I have 2 hiers now.  The year is 800, my infirm King pisskop is perhaps in his golden years, tutoring the next generation of spies.  I have a severe shortage of non-craven warriors because the game RNGed all my good nobles into cowards, and the best part of my local story is what happened to High Chief Penikis' Nieces.

  Because of how the game works, and because I didn't get caught, I took he surviving family of Penikis into my own.  3 women, 2 children and the widower.  I raised the best niece under my direct tutlidge, and made her my concubine.

So, to recap.  I killed her grandfather with incompetent plotting.  I murdered her father after slandering him, agreeing to not kill him to his face multiple times, and outing his love affairs, and then I paid a woman to smother her brother.  Then I took her, made her a adept spy, and made her a mere mistress to my dark desires.  Im a gluttonous, cruel impaler who is a great spy and is patient and publicly charitable.  Im a coward craven who is scarred and infirm in his old age.  Im known as 'King pisskop the Cruel' and have 2 sons and a daughter.  The 1st son is to my first wife who died of illness shortly after childbirth and my 2nd is born to the concubine, who also bore the daughter.

My inheritence isnt getting screwy, as I have land I set aside for the second son.  He gets a duchy in what was mainland finland.  Although he's taking a temple with him, one of the primary means of money to a barbarian tribal.

(click to show/hide)
^^This is a faction map of the world.

Finland, owned by the mustard-brown colored guy, is right north of me, the light red.  Poland is below me, and ate up pomerenia.  If I can subjegate them with my gen1 character I can form the Empire.

 - - - - -

I havent been keeping great eyes on the game outside of my little corner, mostly because Im not doing an LP, I did notice some things.

The Spanish arabs lost their empire title, and as a result they are immensely weakened.  You can see the chiristain kingdom in the corner there has actually grown.  This beats the last game where the spanish caliph converted to christianity :v

The Middle Eastern Empire is struggling with a huge decadence problem, with that caliph seeing 75% decadence.  Thats -57% troops moral and -10% income.  Ridiculous.  He just lost a rebellion in Egypt, where you see the lighter green.

Byzantine, the purples, Im angry with of late.  They dont swing their might around in offense, and as a result dont ever really grow.  They mostly stagnant and compete with the pope for most money banked.  As you can see they have plenty of rebellions and significant chipping from the Geogian side.

Saxony, the northernmost part of the Blue Blob of France, used to be a viking state, and I was quite impressed with them until the Not-Quite HRE took them down.  Ive noticed the ai doesnt do a good job of making the Empire, instead typically sticking with Francia.  He holds six kingdom titles instead of making the empire and delegating.  :|

Khazaria, the amorphous yellow blob, is as always looking like a usful ally through marriage, but all too often they dont pan out and they sputter around the time of the Khans.  Who have also sputtered out as of late.  Where is tha aggression :(  They say th January update will fix that some.  Which is good, because Empire ais are too passive.


- - - - -

Poland remains my most immediate threat, being comparable in size and troop power to me.  Ruthenia to the south is shared by 2 factions that are slightly weaker than I am, because their rulers hold all the titles within them.  To the north and east Little Russia is struggling to get off the ground, and I may end up attacking them if their alliances sour, or if one attacks the other in an attempt to unify the land.   Finland up north remains a bit of a joke, Finland having the weakest lands in the game. You know, because of the cold and the nothing? :o


Overall this isn't my best run, but for 31 years its far from the worst too.   went from a force of 300 troops to 2.5k plus tribal allies of 1.5-2k troops and I reserve the right to call in 2500 other troops from events.  Ive been spending my prestige on my planned main holdings and Ive dumped in 4.5k prestige thus far, and gone through 600 tons of gold on markets.  Like any good barbarian would do.  I need all the gold I can get as soon as I can get it.

Still doodadaling with Crusader Kings II.


Its 1170 or so, and I control all of scandanavia, poland, lithuania, ruthenia, germany, saxony, and most recently most of bavaria and all of middle francia.
  In contrast, the byzantines have become lollards, taken significant portions of lombardy and western france, and we trade number 1 slot of 'most powerful entity' of the game, fluctuating with our various wars and etc al.

  Byzantine is currently beating me with 50k troops while I can muster 38k readily.  Thats with a 33% strength retinue and no choosen warband.  They tend to be wealthier in general and interestingly enough more stable with their catholic conversion and subsequent heresy.


  Yea, The byzantines were inherited by a child-king of lombardy, and he converted them to catholicism over the course of his life.  When he died his successor made an antipope, and catholic authority plummeted to nothing.  In the mess that followed massive heretical uprising happened and my vassal all gangbanged our neighbors.  Out the other end Karlings controlled byzantine and they were lollards.  Lombardy is lollard, west francia is under byzantine rule and lollard, and catholics in spain are growing fat and powerful, slowly pushing on the fractered muslim nations of spain.  IDK why that spanish caliph has such a problem keeping his little vassals in check, but the whole of africa is now one dynasty and 3 kingdoms.

  The other muslim blob has fractured a little, and occassionally takes on byzantine.  The east is a mess of infighting, turkestan having broken up and me inserting my religion wherever I could.  I like to elect troublesome nobles as diviners and send them out, hoping they will be captured.


Im waiting for the mongolian invasion, and like always Im hoping, most likely in vain, that they will actually wage real wars.  AI in the game is gimpy for emperor level critters.

Grinding like there's no tomorrow of course.  I've given them some money by buying some "value packs" they offer sometimes, but only like $10 worth I think.

DDA and Russian standalone STALKER mod "Darkest Time" (with english dialog patch and AI mod)

I'm always working through one STALKER mod or another. Damn I wish there was a proper new game, after so many years of playing mods I'm sadly starting to get bored with the first three games even modded. Maybe there will be a really distinct mod with a new story based off of Call of Chernobyl, but most mods just don't add enough new content or mechanics to keep me as interested as I used to be. Maybe it's time for me to slug through the SDK install and start modding myself?

That Subterrain game looks pretty neat

just finished replaying Deus Ex Human Revolution. This time i just did a leisure play, exploring as much as i could. I am damn amazed at how well the game captures a dystopian alternate history , spent lots of time just listening to random dialogues between non-essential NPCs, watching news and reading lore.  Even though the player is given the illusion of choice until the end, this detracts nothing from an absolutely amazing story.

Nah, I found it  it was wayward. I remember it having a better name. A very simple but fun rougue-like.you get some minor benefits from previous play if they met certain milestones too, which is nice. Plus you get to keep all your recipes. Its basically mandatory that you find a wooded area though, or your survival time is seriously limited by your ability to make fire. Palm trees do not give all the needed ingredients. Namely twigs/branches which are needed to make kindling/tinder. Also you can't replant palms in any fashion, no saplings or such. The only other oboxious bit I can think of, is that backpack item is broken, especially in that putting a raft in will make it so you have to carry the raft while rowing it. meaning you can't hold much else. Pouch works fine for some reason though.

well.... since it's mandatory:
binding of isaac, death skid marks, factorio, grip, oxygen not included, planter coaster and rollercoaster tycoon world, rimworld, streets of rogue (really enjoying this one, very much recommended), unexplored (now that game has cool procedural generation, maybe one of the few actual procedural as well instead of just randomized) and those are the ones i'm really actively playing lately, i'd still like an excuse to get back into arma 3 multiplayer, but.... that'll never realistically happen because the main reasons i gave up on it was the terrible quality vehicle to vehicle physics interactions, the every group you spend much time with eventually someone wants to start duping and the god awful lag.

oh and cataclysm dda in case it's not obvious, this game is pretty much timeless imo.

[edit] nearly forgot, but i just found out about duskers and had to pick it up, seems like a really cool game, i'm remembering how much DOS prompts suck through it though is the problem, but at least they added things like autocomplete for commands and such. [/edit]

26 hours? I feel your pain.

As for what I (was) playing, it was Cogmind. It's a roguelike thing where you play a robot. And kill other robots. It's pretty fun and recently came into Beta so it's much cheaper than it used to be.
Now I scan the internet looking for the next game to take a few days of my time. It isn't going well.

I was playing the Fallout series, but I beat the original two (I'm playing Tactics now, but not devotedly, due to lack of any story,) and am looking for a good game to play. I'm trying Wasteland right now, and am enjoying it, but I want a game with more of a story. I don't care about graphics as long as they're not excellent-- my computer has a moderately tough time playing Fallout: NV on medium graphics. I'd like it to be a kind of long game, as I beat the Interplay Fallout games in roughly a weekend. I do love old games, such as the first 3 Metroid games, and the Atari game Adventure. I'm currently playing Cataclysm DDA, but am still working on getting it on my laptop. If anyone knows another good game to play, I would be open to suggestions.

Xbox 360: the newer Tomb Raiders. The first one felt like a breath of fresh air, but the second one felt.... like too much of the same? Can't place it but it was sort of disappointing.

wow small world I just got back into it as well, now that I have a computer that can handle it again.

Apoc games has alot of good servers. They tend to run  heavily customized packs that blend well. Bungied hub world you can use to jump between the various servers (agrarian skies, vanilla and several others that escape me, including their custom pack which includes several machine mods, magic mods and blending between them. AE can attatch to everything including blood magic) lots of mod presence to keep griefing and the like down, which helps keep it more mature like here.

I think Tactical Gaming also has minecraft groups, and there a tight nit community spanning several platforms.

Yesterday a played a bit of Kenshi, Rodina, Atomic Society, and Quest Hunter.. but was just checking them out, didn't play much more than the tutorial, a few minutes checking them out each.

Other games I've been playing are Rust, Starward Rogue, Enter the Gungeon, Starship Theory, Vagante, Stellar Tactics, oh AND RIMWORLD! can't forget that awesome game.

Finally got a components bench, almost done with the last research, and am about to start ranging out to conquering those pesky pirates, instead of just mineral clumps and item stashes. The charge rifles help.

The starting map I got was just too perfect to be honest. May have to random next time or something. Starting in a mountain region with the top half a mountain and everything else chokepoints with a perfect alcove, that needs only two small walls is a bit too perfect.

But it did teach me the importance of kiting in Rimworld when I opened the no warning cryo chamber with a syther and a centipede. And how much better a wall is than a sandbag, or better yet a single sandbag next to a wall. Much cheaper on valuable iron *steel*

I mostly play crappy phone games, the current less crappy one is Infinitode, it's a tower defense game with a tech tree for tower upgrades.  Ends up as a mashup of tower defense and an incremental, which is fun at first and then turns into grinnnnnd.
Title: Re: What are you currently playing ? (Mandatory topic)
Post by: Litppunk on September 05, 2017, 02:12:53 PM
Yeah, I stopped playing that when it became clear thats where it was going. It basically said so from the start, but once I had a level in the tech tree it was basically. Yep I have learned everything of value this has to offer, and foresee no more entertainment value here.

Age of Strategy is a Turn based strategy similar to Advanced Wars or Tactikon. Building units uses turns as currency per building. It has a master tech tree that unlocks everything and also allows the purchase of one time use powers. But you want a lot of those unlockable units for the campaigns that are MANDITORY if you want any of the crystals used to buy the master tech tree stuff. Can't play fun random games and get any credit. Only campiagns.

Luckilly there are like a billion such campaigns many user submitted that let you level up bit by bit, but most are either so easy, but using such large armies facing off from across the map that it makes it a grind to manually move all the units. And sure you can set them via, the building or individuals or groups to set a waypoint for them to move towards, but;
Or they probably require units and upgrades you have no access to until you beat more campaigns.

Other than that its a great game.

bought TESO a few days ago at a great discount. i'm playing it as a sp game, for the extra lore and to explore Tamriel. AT 10$ wasnt a bad purchase, but it's indeed a mmo. Anyway, the main quests aren't too bad, and traveling around and speaking with the NPCs, stealing their shit and reading all the bits and pieces is worth the price. Otherwise it's retardedly easy and i've died maybe 2-3 times, more because i missed a key than due to challenge posed by any mob. Eh, think SWTOR, played it for the story with 2-3 clases, they are mostly on par.

Darkwood
Top-down survival horror with limited field of vision.
Holy fuck it does manage to nail the atmosphere of a "run, don't look back". It also has a mechanic that forces the player to camp out the night while monsters attack, which in the first few nights is intensely spooky.

I dont horror game any more.


But the sound of the chip on the fritz was horrifying.



If I MUST comment on games I do play Im playing CKII and the world is currently deblobed af.  The two mussies broke apart into gore, the seljuks empire and shia syria exist.  Europe is getting nommed by me, and the vikings have holdings in England for once.  Scotland, to be percise.  They hold norther scotland and wessex (of all places) and north ireland.

Khazaria was a monster for a while, as they ate up RUS and ruthenia.  Bohemia was a monster before that, owning hungary and pannonia and armenia and saxony.  and the mongols are/were a power in the east, controlling everything behind khazaria.

India is a pile of gore, and the african monothyists were just recently overrun by the deblobed egypt and yeman.  Egypt has eaten the christain kingdom of tunis, and fuckin' Muslim Castille is the dominant Spanish kingdom, as Hispania proper is now centered in moorish land and Castile [i[assimilated[/i] birttany into its de jure holdings.  Hold onto that,  Brittany is dejure part of castille.

Im lithuania (prussia due to culture) and now that khazaria has fallen and there are still no crusades Im running armok.  In maybe 50 years the crusades will trigger, but I dont think it will save any european power but italy, as aquitaine is the only part of france not gored and heresied into oblivion.

So, byzantine is taking armenia and wallachia, and they are the only coherent empire but mine own.  Svijod converted to my religion to avoid a crusade up their bums, and I didnt even want to crusade up there (so Im okay with this) because owning 'the north' would make an easy situation even easier.

Svijod owns the majority of scandinavia, with danmark recently breaking away.

It doesn't get any real guts until one-third into the game, has like one very minor jump scare in the whole game, instead relying on sounds of footsteps (not faked, just monsters walking around), music, limited vision, growls from outside vision, and penalties for dying.

Psychonauts is free on the Humble Bundle store right now for anyone interested. I have it from a previous bundle, but still haven't played it. It's not like CDDA or anything, but have heard it's not bad for what it is.

Modding New Vegas beyond stability.

Haven't modded any Fallout game since like 3, and boy did that game crash a lot. I swear I've seen that "Fallout3.exe has stopped working" message more than I've actually played the game.

I'll be back into C:DDA soon... one can only play Fallout for so long lol.

MineCraft again. Gotta build all the castles on all the mountains.

Got a Tecknik 'Enhanced' world generation build going on right now. All the biomes are extreme mountains, even the plains, but especially the extreme mountains. Think they put multipliers on terrain height or something, but it makes for some AMAZING views. Also near impossible to navigate sometimes but meh. Once I get a jetpack going I'll have an easier time building skybridges along these cliffs and sky islands.

Think it also increases max Z levels in either direction.... So cool.

I've been playing a bit of Heat Signature, it's kinda like Hotline Miami in space(and I didn't like hotline miami all that much tbh, please don't shoot me), with pause and decent stealth mechanics, as well as gadgets/tools to help with your "art of killing".

Yeah I've been looking into Cogmind, and actually had a dream I was playing it last night, which I just now remembered while reading this thread lol. I've watched some of Quill18's video on it, and I was in the starting room(in my dream) and I started moving but all the parts you could add weren't there.. that's when I should have realized it was a dream and turned it lucid, but it's not always that easy lol.


Oh BTW, Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete is free on Humble Bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/store/sid-meiers-civilization-iii-complete
), and gives a Steam Key which I just grabbed... and actually found a CD and Box copy with the original manual in it at Goodwill or one of the thrift stores near me within the last year or so.
