Title: What computer games do you play?
Post by: watduzhkstand4 on Fri, 21 August 2009, 00:37:14
I'm mostly on TF2 now. I used to play 1.6 and CZ competitively.

This is my current TF2 server, so if you play, come stop by sometime!
67.84.99.26:27015

So what games do you play? (;

Other than some flash games and solitaire I really don't play games.

On the flash games side right now I'm pretty much addicted to Tower defence type of games. Right now that is GemCraft chaper 0 where my score is a little over 3mil.

Been playing Final Fantasy XI for a few years now, though I'll probably be switching over to Aion when it goes live next month.  Took vacation from work for launch week :biggrin1:

I play a different game depending on the mood I'm in, and what I've played recently.

Steam really keeps the best records of what I've been playing:

Nice, I also play tf2, watduz - although I've cut back quite a bit until they get their class additions cleared up so not everyone is rolling Sniper and randomly shooting with a Huntsman over and over :P

I just got done play Fallout 3 and hitting level cap (for the second time) and doing all the DLC's as well. Great additions to the game, especially Broken Steel. Definitely leaves you wanting more.

Since then, I've been playing Gran Turismo 4 with my racing frame and wheel. It's been cool so far, immersive as hell. But I've been spending more time sharpening my trade (front end web development) so I haven't had as much time for games as I want :(

Sounds like some friends of mine. They also took off and played 40 hours straight on the beta weekends. They also teamed up and made their characters look like some anime girl couple. :rolleyes:

For some reason MMORPGs dont seem to hold my attention anymore. It just feels all the same to me.

Personally I only play Pangya, which is some silly Korean fantasy golf game which consists mostly of playing something like golf with badly modelled, low polygon but big breasted girls, often placed in a swimsuit (http://i31.tinypic.com/eq9if8.jpg). I play nothing else any more. No games seem to keep my attention for long. This is the only one I kept coming back to since about 5 years now.

I play both the American server (http://pangya.ntreev.net/), as well as the Korean one (http://pangya.ntreev.com/).

I agree that this is not a good year PC gamers. Arkham Asylum looks interesting. I liked the demo, but it may forces to install GFWL which would be a dealbreaker for me.

Gran Turismo and TF2 are my favorite! I'm just hoping they can release the 5th one now along with the one for PSP. I've been looking forward to getting them for so long now.

It's no fun if it doesn't feel like work, so I mostly play Openttd and Sim City 4 if I'm in the mood, which isn't very often.
I occasionally (i.e. a few times per year) play some Starcraft or other LAN games with some of my friends as well. Apart from that, not much.

Quake III Arena!!!!!

Anyone remember that game?  Well I believe it to be the greatest game ever made.  Anyway, other than that, old school FPS games like quake, doom and I like some of the newer ones as well   +1 for HL2E3!!!  I also like me some gameboy zelda games!

If you like Quake III Arena, you'll love QuakeLive (http://www.quakelive.com/). It's basically Q3A in a browser, and puts you on servers that have players similar to your play style.

Unreal Tournament 99, and NFS:MW, the odd flash game on the inturwebs.

The only 2 reasons I own decent Graphics cards, although the Original UT played on a 2mb Matrox Millenium paired with a 4MB MaxiGamer 3D (Voodoo1).

QuakeLive is great.  I used to play Q3a a lot but it seemed to die down.  I've been playing QuakeLive for a while and its bringing back all the old memories.  I don't play frequently though.  Just the occasional game here and there.  Usually when I want to sit down and play an FPS for a while, I go to UT2K4.

The base game has been outshined by other games IMO, but the user generated content on there is just so much fun.  I'm a sucker for Excessive Weapons, RPG servers, Slim Pickin Deemers, and C&C maps.

I recently played through d2 as an lightning/orb mage and then again as a frost zealot paladin. Amazing how old that game is, and it's kept my interest longer than cod4(WaW, not MW). d3 should own, assuming Blizzard doesn't go the same route as WoW and make it super casual baby mode

I have a couple friends that play sf4 competitively, they're god damn nuts. The only thing we have in common is we like switches (they prefer sanwa over cherry :P )

Oh something else I found myself doing
playing the Chrono Trigger snes rom. I do this about once every year or so. Play the game, use frameskip to farm mobs at 10x speed, beat the game, newgame+, solo lavos with Chrono, and then retire the game

Keeps my mind fresh on how amazing of a game that is. I play Secret of Mana/Evermore about once a year too.

I got top 20 at that out of 1064 ;D! But umm.... basically I'm in SoCal area where Arcade Infinity is basically the best players out of the whole US minus a handful in the New York area and around 2 or 3 in Arizona, if you guys want to meet the best players just post another message here or send me a pm and I can arrange something with my friends. Hell I don't know if you guys know what Video 94 is it's a "shady" video shop in the City of Nogales near the City of Industry we are starting something again called VBO which is Video Battle Opera and we hold 5 on 5 random team tournaments I scored Alex Valle so we lucked out umm.... Theres honestly not that many videos of me because the playstyle I have is somewhat unique amongst the community however err Here's a link on what happened at the latest tourney http://www.gytnews.com/ just scroll down a bit to umm A . I ranbat 2.5, don't know if you guys know who Gootecks is sadly there is no video because I faced him so early in the tourney however I sent him to losers on the top of the page that would be Mike Ross who teamed up with Keno for a tournament in San Diego sadly I couldn't make it to that one because I had papers to write... but umm yeah <3~

Probably the only reason I still have my Wii (well..and there's some exclusive titles no one can live without playing). I have a feeling I'll never grow out of gaming. I've been doing it since I was a tiny kid with our Atari 2600 (which went to the attic, and then sold at a garage sale, rest in peace). I play games now more than ever...damn me for having such a disposable income

I think there is a very good chance I'll be getting a PS3 when GT5 finally hits.  I have put a lot of time into all the Gran Turismos.  GT3a and GT4 I stopped playing around when they started being mostly endurance races though.  I can't put a few straight hours into a game like that.  But even with stopping at the endurance races, I still had more fun with them than 99% of the other games I have played.  

With GT4, once I only had endurance races left, I just did drifting races and time trials on the ring and was quite content.  That game made drifting into something you could really spend time getting good at.  I tried GRiD but the drift races were just too easy.  I think GT4 spoiled me.

I think that nearly anything from Valve makes for a fantastic game. I've logged upwards of 300 hours in TF2 since 2007. All of the Half-Lifes (really looking forward to Black Mesa Source), Trackmania Nations Forever, and Audiosurf are installed on my computer at any given time. I also keep a copy of Ratchet & Clank around just because the game's so damn fun.

I played the sniper team games as Doctor Eclipse of the Valiant Clan in Unreal Tournament until around 2004. A combination of tendinitis and being constantly swamped by the business I started in 2003 ended my playing days. The death of my MicroConnectors keyboard didn't help either. I think the loss of that keyboard may have had something to do with the worsening of my tendinitis because if you've ever played the run 'n gun sniper game or instagib in Unreal Tournament, it's very hard on your hands even with good equipment.

I don't really play anything anymore except for some occasional Flash games or a strategy game like Hordes of Orcs... no time and I can't afford to risk my hands. :(

Buuuuut, my new Filco Brown should get here soon and mebbe I can fire up an ol' beloved FPS for old times sake. Then I would just have to find some time.

Currently playing Heroes of Newerth, which is a stand-alone game based off of the Defense of the Ancients mod for Warcraft III. There are a lot of gameplay and UI improvements that are pushing DotA players to transition over. It also works on PC, Mac and Linux too so it's very accessible.

It's currently in a closed beta but I have two invites left if anyone is interested. If you've never played DotA before, it's a game with one of the highest learning curves.

Absolutely great games. Assuming you played them in the correct order:


You really get to see one of the better video game "stories" unfold right from the beginning. It's a very "satisfying" series to get through because you actually follow the characters and how they develop through it (though OpForce and Blue Shift don't really go anywhere, they're still decent games)

Joking aside it's a great series, and depending on how you play the game (pay attention to what's going on, or just run through killing stuff getting frustrated when the gameplay slows you down) you'll either notice it or remain oblivious to it.

Sometimes CS 1.6 and Quake Live at LAN-parties, but that's about it. I would play more FPS but I seem to get sick after 20 or so minutes of gameplay. Got something to do with my vision.

Uh... there's many good games for computers. Better than stupid consoles. The DOS versions of games with redbook audio were always superior. I'm surprised so many people forgot the good old classics of the past, which, are still superior to shoddy games made today. In fact, I think I'm going to play some lands of lore 1 later on my 300PL.

What games give you motion sickness the worst?

For me I just discovered my nemesis. I can't play Portal for more than 30 minutes at a time or I start getting nausea. It surprised me how sick it made me because there's not a lot of bobbing in Portal. There's something else about how the movement is done that is getting to me.

The only other game that really gave me fits was an old Lucasfilms FPS, Dark Forces. I'm sure others will bother me too, but I don't play much.

The odd thing is that I have very little susceptibility to motion sickness in real life and have always had a really good ability to suppress dizziness by tuning out inner ear stimuli.

Do you have seizures?

I don't get motion sickness from any game, maybe it's because of the large DPI on some games. I find it a lot easier to play on CRTs with low resolutions opposed to LCDs with high DPI.

I'm currently playing Grim Fandango. Absolute classic. I started playing again from scratch in March, on Windows 7, and it still plays flawlessly despite being a Windows 95/98 era game. The graphics look a little dated, but actually not that bad, and the story, musical score and overall design outweighs any roughness to the graphics.

Once I've finished Grim Fandango I might move onto Sam & Max. I have the original DOS game and also the first series of the new episodic games. Those too, I recommend.

If I'm not playing that sort of game, I like to have a quick mess around in one of the GTA series games. Hardly ever play the missions though; prefer to go on a mindless rampage.

I remember seeing Grim Fandango being sold alongside Lords of the Realm 2 at futureshop. That was a glorious time when all of the games were special and you could pick up something that was fun.
However, I never bought the fandango game; I didn't have a "3D card" installed in my 300PL at the time. And when I got a TNT one, I couldn't figure how to set it up, so, we just returned it. Damn! I was very young at the time though, so, give me a break.

Instead I just frown as I enter bestbuy or futureshop... nothing good anymore. I think they even stopped selling age of empires 2 last year.

Well, better finish building my repertoire of old games and finish them all. Almost finished caesar 3...

I still play the Close Combat series (3-5).  Apart from that I long to replay Max Payne and return to the castle of wolfenstein. My last computer overheated when played upon and I still haven't got my DVD player to work on my Facit machine (some stange odd0 error messages are making life hard).
But when everything works I have years of game releases to catch up with.

I liked Hexen, which was based on the quake engine. The old wolfenstein was cool: the 3D one kind of bored me. Can't make a classic any better.

First real post... I got started gaming in Gemstone III/IV. Still love it though I'm not currently active. EQII overlapped when I had time for 2 games. Now I have time for neither sadly.

After finding out about Mechanical keyboards I wonder how I survived a purely text game with a logitech. (Any game really)

I do still play PS3 games (Buzz/Heavenly Sword/Rock Band) and like short fun games for breaks at work (TextTwist type)

We also love board games and having game nights with friends. That is where I have the most fun. (Ever tried Jungle Speed? Serious fun)

My husband is dreading the day my chosen mechanical gets here once I find it. That is, until he tries it :)

One thing that annoys me is that people ask about other's interests and yet show no interest in communicating! "I play MBD, ADHD, D2 (8 years now), MCI, FTL, GTFO... the list goes on and on!". If these people really wanted to talk about games with other people, they'd realize that not everyone else knows what abbreviations they use in their particular game community.

I mean, it's one thing when we're rambling on at the D2:HU boards - then it's all acronyms but that's inside the group and there's a FAQ handy to get inside the lingo.

Some abbreviations can be safely assumed well-known, such as FPS, (MMO)RPG, PS3 and other generic gaming terms.

(In case someone didn't get the joke: D2 is Diablo 2; HU is the Hell Unleashed mod. I've stopped playing it since I got my Playstation 3. So much fun to be had there!)

I've finished all three... but I really had to grit my teeth considering how buggy the games were. Shadow of Chernobyl was tolerable as long as you weren't moving through the Military Warehouses area. Clear Sky crashed frequently for me, but there wasn't any rhyme or reason to it. Call of Pripyat crashed on average every 15-20 minutes. Getting through that was a labor of love, and I absolutely wouldn't tolerate that **** for any other game.

Star Control II was the last game I forced myself to play that crashed that often.

Starcraft2 better save the PC Gaming industry or a lot of Gamerz at OCN are going to be wondering...

You want to know what happened to the PC gaming industry? Look no further than the XBOX. Who wants to develop for a fractured platform when you can develop for a standardized platform that is almost, but not quite, just like a PC? The only downside being the licensing and approval process, compared to publishing on PC, where you can get your ESRB/CERO/PEGI etc rating, then push to market. The related upshot being a significantly smaller QA budget, and not having to keep a team on standby supporting a product after launch that, say... mysteriously won't work on Nvidia chipsets of xx.xx driver revision. Or any number of other scenarios that we run into, for that matter.

PC has the RTS and MMORPG genres sewn up tight, but has lost its grip on FPS.

You must be under some curse... or I'm blessed (which I doubt) since I went through Call of Pripyat without any real crash/problem...
I've bought all three STALKER at the same time, but I am yet to play the first two, most probably because I'm lazy about finding the proper mods to use.

Besides that it's been mostly Quake 3 (Quake Live killed the fairplay that Q3 had), Call of Duty 4, World of Warcraft since day zero, with occasional FPS and RPG (and the mix of those) now and then (Bioshock, Borderlands and the likes).

Nowadays I'm on Planescape: Torment.
Oh, and I still need to finish Dawn of War II Chaos Rising for the second time (now with full chaos), because it's so fun.

Out of all the game's I've played on various PCs throughout the years, the only games I've had problems with were the 3 Stalker titles, and Star Control II. Everything else I've ever played has run well. Stalker (in general) is just weird like that: some people have zero problems, others crash like crazy. Sadly, that's the price you pay for creating an engine that attempts to heavily leverage DirectX 8,9,10, and 11 features in the same runtime. Looking through the crash logs, I see that the majority of my crashes come from AI problems, and the rest come from general graphics hiccups. I can drop back to DirectX 8 rendering, and that will cut my crashes by ~50% or so, but the game looks like ass, comparably speaking of course!

Title: What computer games do you play?
Post by: Zalusithix on Fri, 28 May 2010, 18:38:01
Bleh... OnLive is such a gimmick. 720p? Computer gamers have been playing at resolutions higher than that for ages - all without the compression artifacts and potential lag issues that OnLive will have. That and OnLive will crap out every time your net connection hiccups. Better hope you don't have quotas either 'cause gaming will use a hell of a lot more bandwidth over OnLive.

OnLive on a conceptual level will never be able to reach the quality that a real gaming PC will provide. It's a game being rendered at a server farm where each supercomputer/cluster will be rendering for multiple people at the same time (and also wasting cycles on compressing the video for sending to the player). Thus they'd need in the very least the aggregate computational power of the gaming rigs that each person would otherwise have. Given the power of modern day graphics cards and CPUs, this simply isn't possible. There's no hardware on earth that would allow them to match that power in a cost effective manner. Let alone set up multiple farms of such hardware for latency issues.

It's like trying to equal the computational power of the distributed Folding@home network on a single supercomputer. It just isn't going to happen. And even if you somehow could do it, the cost would be so prohibitive that it'd be insane to make a business out of it. Especially with the rate that hardware advances.

The only way it can do what it does is by running the games at lower settings and resolutions than somebody with a real gaming rig would want to. At best they'll be console level graphics. And in that case, just get a damn console. At least then you'll own physical copies of your games and not be affected by your internet dropping out for a moment.
Title: What computer games do you play?
Post by: Mercen_505 on Fri, 28 May 2010, 23:49:33
Onlive is an interesting idea, sort of an "end game" scenario (pun not intended) for publishers where they control content through a totally fixed pipeline, and can extract whatever money they want in the process. Personally, I'm not looking forward to that day.

That said, the United States lacks the net infrastructure to make something like this work for anything but simple games. The beta clearly indicated that, from the numerous reports I've read. I have no reason to doubt them. Latency is going to bury this service. Supposedly puzzle games were fine, and racing games were laggy yet playable, and anything intense was outright unplayable. No surprise there.

The other problem is going to be that as resolutions push past 720p, no amount of compression is going to allow them to render a frame and toss it back to you in the amount of time needed to not notice lag. By the time the US' net infrastructure gets upgraded to support this, we'll be well past it in terms of resolution.

It's a neat idea, but I would imagine it's at least a decade away from being a viable service.

When it comes to the Stalker Series, you have to be dedicated. After going to the GSC Gaming Forums for 2 years, I've used mods (some to stop crashes) to
make the Stalker games rival ANY games graphics and the AI is like no other. Lots of shooter/RPG elements in these and their not easy. However the pure atmosphere of dread in the "Zone" is quite unmatched. The graphics turned up are amazing in a rough/gritty way...not the beauty of "Crysis".  It is true that the engine is maxed out for its age but its a lotta fun for me. These true PC-only games are not for the plug-n-play crowd.
There is much to experiment with. Like this....

I mostly play SC2, Minecraft, Guild Wars when I can be arsed and the occasional MW2 game. Yes, MW2 is bad, but it requires no effort to play and there's no pressure, so it's nice for shutting down the brain for brief periods.

Been playing more SC: BW lately, hoping I'll get more into it as it's fantastic, but sort of hard to play for me since RTS doesn't come naturally to me like FPS games do.


I also tend to play some Oblivion, Splinter Cell: Conviction, CoD4, Crysis 2, Dragon Age and Diablo 2, though those see somewhat less action than the others.

Most of my multiplayer adventures are with a good friend of mine, and when I play singleplayer games we're still on skype a lot of the time.

I discovered SpaceChem (http://store.zachtronicsindustries.com/product/spacechem) 24 hours ago and have since been playing it with nary a pause. Holy cow, what a game. It challenges you to design a pair of robots that act in parallel to assemble atoms into molecules. It's nerdalicious! Obsessive-compulsives and tinkering types will love it. If you collect mechanical keyboards,  you should probably check it out.

On and off of Runescape for many, many years. I'm sober for about a year or so. I started playing back in Runescape Classic, and didn't really get good. All in all, I was way too ADD to get anywhere close to level 99 in anything. Part of me loves it, and a part of me died.

Also many years of playing flash games. Sometimes I like to go and have a little dose.

Used to have an Xbox until it broke. Now I play a PS2.

As far as games I own, I'm way behind. Just got addicted for about a week straight a month ago for AOE II because it was at Wal-Mart for $10.

That doesn't mean I don't know how to play. I beat my friends who own GT5, Forza 3, and Forza 2. I can hold my own on Halo and CoD. And yes, I probably play more on my friends' PS3s and 360s than anything else.

And I'll kick your ass in Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I have my bit of nostalgia this week and i'm gonna play
Star Control 2
if anyone saw that and is nostalgic too, the company released the source code almost 10 years ago and the community has recreated the game to work with modern computer systems and is a free download with all the 3do graphics and sound files
http://sc2.sourceforge.net/downloads.php

Star Control 2, imo is the grandfather of all major galactic plotlines in almost every good videogame created now. IMO bioware is based entirely on how Star Control drives the story, again this is NOT current gen or even previous gen graphics. this is like 1992 graphics, with just the best storyline ever created.

I replayed Star Control 2 about a year ago, though I did so through Dosbox rather than this version. It's one of the games that has stood the test of time and is still enjoyable now - many of my other favourites of the 90s have not fared so well in comparison, though I still play Master of Orion 1 and sometimes 2 still.

Anyone who doesn't shy away from older stuff should definitely give Star Control 2 a try. One of the best games ever released.

Well, I'm mostly into the competitive side of things. First PC FPS that I played multiplayer was CoD2 in '06, still play that every now and then. Call of Duty 4 for LANs + online leagues, though I don't play it actively anymore due to gaining an increased amount of bad rep on the CyberGamer website. Playing in a league for Black Ops but it's pretty much dead due to no mod tools. Really enjoying Quake Live and trying to get good at it fast, main reason sort of laying off the CoD series since it's just a dead spastic game with no skill involved. Play some single player games sometimes, played Portal 2 and it was terrible compared to the first. 1.6 + CS:S whenever friends want to PUG or I get asked to slut. Play some Visual Novels/Eroges sometimes. Recently I picked up osu! and it's a GREAT game, fun to play and I swear it increases aim in FPS ;)

I regard it as my personal greatest game of all time so far, no nostalgia involved...and this is coming from someone who's played games like System Shock 2 and Deus Ex. Needless to say, I'm not stating that lightly.

Funny thing is, it's on GOG now, bundled with the first game for $5.99. (Probably the DOS version.) Since SC2:UQM is legal freeware now, that basically makes it $6 for the original, which I have yet to play.

Oh, and for those who like SC2:UQM, look into Starflight and its sequel. They pretty much laid the groundwork for what would become SC2, and Paul Reiche III is even in the Special Thanks section of the credits. (That has to be more than mere coincidence.)

Bah Quake Live killed the good spirit in Quake 3 IMO.

Back in the days, when people dropped off a team and there'd be an imbalance, people from other team would fill the gap.
Now when some guy chickens out and quit (for instance), it's a snowball effect because nobody fills the gap, as it would hinder stats...

Indeed but I think WoW competitor would be SWTOR, with the established story and massive following. I'm done with WoW though. If SWTOR doesn't pan out the way we are expecting to be, We will have GW2 to fall back on. :P

hi! while this will be my first actual post on these forums. i've actually been lurking like crazy (or so it feels) for a few weeks now. something oddly addicting when it comes to the world (yeah, world. i only just recently how in depth and hardcore keyboard technology got) of mechanical keyboards.

anyways. on to the point. i gamed HEAVILY on a 15 inch laptop scissor switch keyboard for over 4 years. i just recently switched over to a desktop. my muscle memory was soo developed and used to the compact layout of my laptops keyboard that i said "screw it" and went to fry's and bought a wireless scissor switch keyboard with a similar layout too it because i was soo used to how typing and gaming on my laptop felt. i didn't want to "relearn" and re develop my muscle memory for a standard layout. my laptop keyboard always worked out well for me. or so i thought at least.

anyways. i'm an avid starcraft 2 player. high masters throughout, although i haven't consistently solo'd since season 1 though. somehow i stumbled accros what hardware pros used on the teamliquid forums or something and read something real brief about mechanical keyboards. basically just breezed or skimmed over it and said whatever to myself when i saw it if you know what i mean. thing is. mechanical keyboards just in general throughout the community kept popping up more and more often i saw. don't ask me how. but i stumbled upon this website. it was probably motivated by the fact that my "laptop esque" mini wireless keyboard wasn't really satisfying me. i'm not particularly picky , [(or so i'd like to think lol )[/u] so the thing just flat out wasn't going to work out if i was having troubles with the same thing still.anyways....

commence project "BLOWING MY MIND OPEN TO THE WORLD OF MECHANICAL KEYBOARDS." i was soo hooked on lurking this site as well as gathering outside information such as the mechanical keyboard guide over at overclock.net that i basically studied up on mechanical keyboards for a good 2 weeks or so i'd guess. my only real reluctance in regards to maybe getting one was the steep price most mechanicals go for. if i were to tell a good bunch of the people i socialize with how much i spent on a keyboard recently they'd look at me like i was crazy for instance.

to make an extremely tl;dr OP thread short for your guys sakes. i ended up buying a cherry g80-3494 mx red switch board for $170. i also spent $40 on a g81-1138hbu ( a MY switch board ) [/b] for the doubleshotted off white colored keykaps to use on the g80. (yes i'm aware i spent well than more than what i could have potentially have on both boards or something equivelant but your guys god damn website broke me one night and i just splurged on ebay. by the way. typing on a MY switch board is an absolute horror. those things have to have be made with durability in regards to their life expectancy for POS or something as well as cheapness as their top 2 priorities right?  

in the end.  OH MY GOD TYPING AND PLAYING ON A MX RED SWITCH KEYBOARD IS AMAZING. PARTICULARLY IN COMPARISON TO MY OLD LAPTOP SCISSOR SWITCH.

PLEASE ENLIGHTEN MORE PEOPLE WHO SPEND A SIGNIFICANT TIME ON THE COMPUTER HOW AMAZING MECHANICAL KEYBOARDS ARE!

anyways. hope this wasn't tl;dr for too many of you guys. thx =P



p.s.    interesting little tidbit. after having ordered my g80 and g81 kap harvest board i went looking through my families old computer crap while it was being shipped here. this god damn website got me hooked on mechanical keyboards like it was crack cocaine. and i couldn't ever rationalize to anybody why lol. either way. i found a old full sized 1994 ibm model m of my dads and started using it while my new boards were being shipped. ( also sexy as hell to type on. however a model m buckling spring board isn't exactly ideal for what i gauged my preferences in a keyboard to be after all my studying, in the gaming department at least. but still badass nonetheless from everything i've gathered and read about mechanical keyboard history. )

Now nothing at all. I played the aoe series quite a bit when I was younger (I think my highest elo was just shy of 2k playing what was considered the worst country). Then came CS:S where I was ok at (I could hold my own in esea scrims and I played with/against a few cgs players back in the day). More recently I was playing wow but I sold my account recently so now I'm not playing anything. I have Skyrim and a few other newer games but I haven't played any for over a month now. The only game I'm looking forward to atm is CS:GO. I tried LoL but its just not my kind of game.  To be honest competitive games with huge and or variable time requirements just really turn me off. I like fps games like CS where the rounds are usually based on time.

Lately I've been playing a heap of BF3, mostly. I also play the STALKER games (particlularly LURK modded Shadow of Chernobyl) and Skyrim (although I've stopped playing that lately because I became way too powerful and it stopped being challenging). Used to play a lot of Minecraft, but I've kind of got bored with that lately.

Ace Combat is easily my favourite game franchise, though. I've played all of the PS2 and X360 games, and the PS2 titles are all amazing. The two for X360 were pretty good, too. Working my way through the PSP titles now, as I only just bothered buying a PSP. So good to be playing a strangereal Ace Combat game again for the first time, becuase I didn't really like the new real-world X360 game that came out recently.

Oh, and I still play heaps of Crash Team Racing with my brother. Pretty sure we'd be number 1 and 2 in the world at CTR by now. I'll fight anyone who says that any of the Mario Kart are even remotely close to being as good as CTR.

This, I've been pretty much everywhere you can go in the game. It's one of the best, if not the best game that I've played in a long time and don't even care if it was ported to pc, the game is great.

You could max archery and kill people from a distance in 1 shot, good times.

I started playing Skyrim, but then my husband took over my game and I cannot pry him away.  I also play DC Universe Online a lot, although I haven't logged in for a couple of weeks since I've been really busy at work.

I tried SW:TOR in beta but didn't like it; too much repetative clicking, basically a standard MMO.  DCUO is a bit more action-y.

back to "how do you play skyrim" I've got 3 different chars, so it depends on my mood. I'll play my Nord if I want to run around like a wandering badass hunting wolves with my bow or bashing skulls with my 2 handed warhammer (odd combo, I know). He's level 42 or so.

I've got a mage that i don't play much because i'm still on novice/apprentice level spells and am tired of getting 1shot by dragons who bite my head off while i'm hiding behind a rock waiting for my Magicka to regen. (Level 6 IIRC)

Probably my favorite ATM is my sneaky theives guild murderer/theif, It's not at all my personality in real life because i'm a puss, so it's pretty fun. Also it's badass playing MGS style, slicing open foreheads due to the weird models of Skyrim. (level 18~)

@Malphas scary as ****. But now I'm through it, I miss it. I've never experienced such an atmosphere in any game before. The game gives you some breaks with puzzle-parts just right before you get mad ^^. I only can recommend playing it and do what Frictional Games says: In the beginning they tell you to play with headphones and in a dark room => this multiplies all the impressions!
Would love to hear your thoughts when you've begun :D

The multiplayer game I play most consistently is Nuclear Dawn, but I also play Red Orchestra, Battlefield 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam, and some others occasionally, as well.

Other than that, I mostly play single-player games.  I'm playing through Batman: Arkham Asylum and Metro 2033 right now.  I just put a dedicated PhysX card in my computer, so I'm going back to the PhysX games that I skipped before because I couldn't stand playing them without seeing the best graphics possible. :P

Also, if anyone's interested, I just started a new blog/site this year where I'm "chronicling" a lot of my game experiences: http://ingamestories.com

There's only one game worth mentioning. Starcraft 2.

All joking aside, I also enjoy Tribes: Ascend. God that game is ridiculously fun and satisfying. I've also been playing a bit of Anno 2070. Just started on it though, so I'm not super familiar with it yet. It's pretty fun though and seems like it'll suck up a lot of time once I figure it out. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is coming out soon, but I'm not sure if I'll get that on console or PC. Other than that, I don't really find any other PC game worth playing. Every MMO is the same. BF3 is meh. Skyrim's combat killed the fun after 130 hours. DX: HR only lasted 80 hours. Maybe I'm just being cynical.

Anyone here playing Red Orchestra 2? I bought a copy on a bit of a whim the other day, and I've been playing through the campaign so far. Its OK: the controls are dumb and its buggy as hell. Really don't like the tank sections, but playing as infantry is pretty fun.
Had to ragequit last night because my tank stopped working, even though it wasn't reading any damage, and I couldn't get out, and there was no enemies around to kill me.

It'll be interesting to see how multiplayer goes - it certainly has potential, because the main thing stopping it from being fun at the moment is stupid enemy AI.

I have been playing ROHOS2 every since the beta came out, its a challenging game, with 70% realism in it (the other 30% that are missing the old RO1 vets rave about and refuse to play the new RO2 game until the classic  hardcore mode is not implemented) To type all that is wanted from the classic mode it will take a lot of typing, I can explain you that another day.

As for the game itself its a very good game, not a great game like RO1, but its getting there, they still working on it, fixing it, TWI already have new maps which will be free and they will launch the beta servers for testing it. We already have 3 maps from the community that are made, 1 is being played the other 2 are being polished as we speak. So in other words this game will get tons of attention in time, but when the hardcore mode gets implied then all the vet from RO1 will jump ship for good and we will see even more new contets, mutators and what not else.

As for the gameplay,... I play this game with monstrosity, its tough as nails, 1 shot kill except if u get shot in the arms or legs and be able to hide and bandage in time if you dont get picked again aoffcourse. Its all about team play, they are other modes in the game but almost everybody plays Teritory.

MP is where this game is at, I played the SP for maeby 1 hour and that was it, was just to mess around. If you want to enjoy MP hellhole add me to steam, my steam name is SolitarioSoldat and I will give u a sort of guide in the game and show you descent good server thats full 24/7 64 players non stop.

Yeah I think there is generally too much going on in the scene of competitive SC2. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people feel like you, regarding the lack of time for watching what they want to. Even GSL alone is sooo much time you can spend on a broadcast.
I feel the same :/

Yeah, I kind of have an obsessive personality.  If I feel like I can't keep up with 80-100% of the matches, then I don't really feel like watching any - because then I feel like I'm missing too much.  I don't have to watch every match, but it's even hard to keep up with match reports and other little recap shows.

But, I feel that is something that will get better over time as eSports becomes more established.  I feel like there will have to be something like Kespa that will organize leagues and keep players from playing too much (that will be different than Kespa...).  There may still be different tournaments, but I think it will be more like college bowls - it's still part of the overall schedule (worked into every other match/tournament), but it allows the sponsors and different venues to host.

I don't know, maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. :P

@FKSSR
Nono you're absolutely right. Starcraft 2 needs something like Kespa, it would be much more organized and easier to follow.
This is just the beginning of an new era I would say and I honestly feel exactly the same as you said in your first two sentences. There's way too much stuff that you could follow. So I end up with just trying to sort out what I really want to watch but can't decide. On the other side I don't just want to watch any match ... But after what you said I'm happy that I'm not the only one ^^
Let's hope for changes there :)

Back to Red Orchestra 2... Just played my first few rounds of multiplayer. It was actually heaps of fun, although it's clear I've got plenty of learning to do. Having trouble telling Axis/Allies apart at a distance, which is a pain when I'm playing as a marksman. Got a lot of team kills in my first couple of games. Really looking forward to playing a lot more of this.

It was weird.
I played two rounds, which were full of me blasting teammates, and then I topped my third match. It was a small server, there were only six a side plus bots, but I was still pretty chuffed.
We were defending the grain elevator gatehouse against the Germans, and I was a rifleman, absolutely carving the incoming Germans up.
It kind of felt too easy: a bullet to the chest was generally an instant kill, which is completely different to what I'm used to with BF3.
I'm assuming a server full of humans is completely different (much harder) though, because the bots all seemed pretty dumb.

I played RO2 when it came out.  I certainly like it better than any mainstream MP game, partly due to the realism but it also has no balance issues or tacked on crap like other games (perks/streaks from CoD, nonsense weapon attachments from CoD/Battlefield).  With that being said, these games never last me very long.  Lately I've mostly been playing Skyrim along with some ArmA 2: Combined Ops, but I'm also finishing HL2 for the first time since I just got it during the Christmas Steam sale.  I'm quite late with that!  It seems a tad overrated but still beats out most FPS games.

Just like gaming was the killer app for the iPad and Touch.
Just because a few AAA PC ports were bad (Skyrim, I'm looking at your UI) and people pay more attention to PC pirating than console pirating doesn't mean PC gaming is dying. Also, I can't tell if the post you linked is serious or just a really odd joke.

Here's a question. Whats DCS-A10-C like?
To clarify a bit, I've got a really good understanding of the mechanics of flight, I've been an armchair Ace Combat pilot since I was a kid (I realise thats not the most realistic flight sim out), and I've learnt a lot by way of the fact that my Dad has his pilot's license (recreational).

Reviews for DCS: A-10C seem to all say two things:
That its hard, which I don't mind, as long as its not needlessly punishing.
That its very realistic. What I think they meant by that was 'boring'. Do you have to go through all the rigorous take-off procedures etc., just to do the flying. I understand some people are into the in-depth simulation, but I'd much rather just get to the flying.

Can you comment on how in-depth the simulation is? Does it sound like something I'd like, or should I keep playing Ace Combat?

Hi man, Ace Combat 6 was probably the first flight game I played frequently, I dabbled in a few other games when I was a lot younger but none as much as AC6. I spent countless hours scraping buildings on free flight haha

DCS: A-10C is pretty time consuming, it could take months to understand it all. This is one way to sum up just how realistic it is: Wags, the Produce of Eagle Dynamics (the people who make DCS sims) had the opportunity to try out a real A-10C simulator that's used to train future A-10C pilots in the USAF. He was able to start up, request takeoff, taxi, takeoff, navigate to the target, deploy weapons on the target, arrange an aerial refuelling, refuel, navigate home, request landing, land, shut down. 99% of that knowledge came from playing DCS: A-10C. So it is very detailed. My Uncle is a pilot in the Royal Navy, and he described DCS: A-10C as "nails". There are keyboard shortcuts for startup etc, but in order to be effective and use every system to its potential then you will have to read and understand the vast majority of the 671 page manual.

Flaming Cliffs 2 quite a bit easier than A-10C. It's not as simple as Ace Comabat or HAWX - they're more arcade games than simulators. I'd definitely recommend buying it first, you will be able to pick it up quicker and you can enjoy the actual flying and dogfighting.

A lot of people say you need a Hotas or even just a Joystick to enjoy flight simulators, and I have to agree. I couldn't imagine playing with a keyboard and mouse, it really would ruin the experience for me. You can get a decent Joystick that will do the job for around £40, which is roughly $60-$65? If you want to get into it then the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas would be a good starter.

Good luck!

In all honesty, that really wasn't my favourite AC title. The three on PS2 were absolutely amazing, but Ace Combat 5 ('The Unsung War', or 'Squadron Leader', depending on where you're from) is my favourite game of all time. Absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. Having said that, AC6 was not a bad game at all, it just had a lot to live up to in my eyes after the PS2 titles.

That was what I was worried about. As much as I'd love to have the patience for things like that, it really doesn't sound like something I'd enjoy. Bummer.

I was going to get myself a copy of one of the other IL-2 Sturmovik games (the one that was on consoles) but I never got around to it. I've read a couple of reviews of Cliffs of Dover that sounded pretty disappointed, so I didn't bother looking anymore into that one. Sounds to me like I should look into Flaming Cliffs 2. Cheers!

The problem with IL-2 Cliffs of Dover was that when it was released it was really badly optimized and had an awful lot of bugs and glitches. That has pretty much been completely fixed and plays just fine now. You could try out IL-2 Wings of Prey, it's basically another arcade type game but it's also really enjoyable.

Thats almost exactly what I play now, minus the tribes. Never got into tribes, I was always into Quake and Unreal more often. I also play some All Points Bulletin (APB) off and on to mix it up. If  now your curious and you've never heard of it. APB is like Grand Theft Auto - MMO ... but its fun. The game itself has broke-down and came back a few times with different companies. Now it runs on steam - free to play, which is awesome.

Yeah, if you kill me, either I wait 5 days OR i buy +1 live for 5$ ;)

So the server pays for itself when players die. When someone dies, everyone in the channel says R.I.P ...

Limits on the server are 12 000x12 000 so when you die the worst part is getting back to your "hidden home" 8000 blocks away...and since you lost everything on you, your chance of survival are very low.

What is awesome in deathban server is the fact that everyone plays as if it was their real life on the line...its more intense.

What server is this? Connection info? Sounds pretty awesome. Haven't played MC in months, i'll go on spurts of it, play for a month, build something huge and stupid, and then get bored of it and quit, i'll come back and the server will have been reset or something, and my huge, stupid thing is no more, rinse, repeat.

For nostalgias sake... Command and Conquer 95! And some Red Alert 1. Brings a tear to my eye. Freewarenow, and you can play in HD too.

Also played original Dota like a madman for 2 years, and I'm pretty damn good at it (yes I know 2 years is such a short time for DotA but whatever). Best strategic game I have ever, ever played in my life, ever. Standard RTS games I never find to be strategic - it's all build orders, rock paper scissors, macro and micro skills not much real original strategic mindgames IMO. Well you CAN have actual strategic battles, but meh ... I never really felt it. DotA on the other hand, from the first game onwards, EVERYTHING is based on mindgames n shiz.

Although DotA games aren't as diverse as, say, SC2 and generally more boring to watch.

Nowadays i'm clocking hours into MW3 (All on the PC) mainly because friends play it. About MW3 I must say the developers suck face. They actually purposefully designed it completely so that noobs would be able to do well with zero skill, at the cost of extremely good players not doing as well as their skill level should command. They did this with ridiculous killstreak rewards, deathstreak rewards, and gun stats in general (FMG9 akimbos, Type95, Striker)

Basically in terms of skill level: player 1 = 3-and-a-half, player 2 = OVER9000 (arbitrary units of identical scale)
Usually leads to score such as: player 1 = 4/10, player 2 = 20/6 (kills/deaths)
instead of (i.e. if this were ACTUALLY a skill based game we would see): player 1 = 1/10, player 2 = 40/1

Quake on the other hand is an example of a truly skill-based game. I don't mean FPS circle strafing skillz or perfect aim and stuff like that, but at a high level go watch some Quake Live replays and just be dumbfounded.

Anyway hows BF3? I may switch to that :(
But I'm not a fan of this Origin crap

Well, I typically delete what i'm not going to return to, or not actively playing.  This is what's installed right now:

Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe (not actively playing)
MineCraft (not actively playing)
Skyrim (not actively playing)
Mass Effect 3 (done)
Diablo3 Beta
Path of Exile Beta
Legend of Grimrock (http://geekhack.org/showthread.php?30306-who-else-is-playing-legend-of-grimrock)


I was looking at Path of Exile to tide me over while waiting for Diablo 3, since I'm not going to play the beta any more right now, but it's just not quite right for me.  I can't stand the economy of the game, and the excess of unidentified items really pisses me off as a result.  I'm going to uninstall it as soon as I'm typing this post.

I'll end up playing LoG until D3 drops, although if I've not finished it by then, I'll need to wait until I've cleared at least one character through to end-game in D3 before I even think twice about picking it back up.  We'll see how that goes.

I'm holding out for the revised ending for ME3, but once I've played that, I'll likely can it.  I'm going to keep Skyrim around for a while too, since there's so much new content being created... but again, unlikely that I'll even think about touching it again until I've run through D3 a few times.  OpenTTD and MineCraft are lost causes at this point, they're just not too big, and haven't bothered to clear them out since I've got saves all over the place.

What's next, other than Diablo3 (obviously)?

Likely Boarderlands 2, BioShock Infinite, and Torchlight 2.  I love the BioShock series, and I can't wait to play Infinite.  Boarderlands was made significantly better with all the DLC (and this is how DLC should be!), really stoked to play the second one.  I'll play Torchlight 2 after all of the rest, and out of obligation only.  Had it dropped before D3, or even LoG, I'd likely play it through first... but they've missed the boat, and I'm quite disappointed.

Anyone play Natural Selection? I played NS1 years ago (the half-life mod) and was really excited about NS2.  Even though the alpha released in 2010, it seems to have been floundering until a few weeks ago with the launch of beta 2.  After that I have been able to play for an indefinite period without crashes.  I hope they can get more momentum behind it now than just old NS1 players.  There are certainly a lot more people playing it after their presence at PAX (by a lot, I mean more than 50 at a time).  Still, I think its REALLY fun.

A lot of them are being afk, but I have been playing since release...

The whole point of guildwars was guild based pvp. It was incredible at the time, it converged dota with mmorpgs. With each release anet furthermore transformed the game into just an mmo.

I was part of the beta test krewe, and I can honestly say the pvp in guild wars 2 is completely braindead. With every class having a fortification and heal skill, along with the downed system, it's just everyone balling up and trying to mash their buttons on a single target faster than the enemy to down them. The best way I can describe it is every form of PvP in guild wars 2 is like playing IWAY. It just feels like a token part of the game they added at the end. (because they did)

The pve is pretty expansive and fun, but only if you have friends that play parallel with you.

Standard western ARPGs/RPGs (ME, NWN, Elder Scrolls, Diablo, Torchlight, etc.)
Action/Adventure (Ninja Gaiden, DMC, Batman, Assassin's Creed, etc, )
But my forte is fighting games, not that I'm pro-level or anything. I used to frequent arcades back in my high school/college days (I'm all console now).

StarCraft 2 is my main game but I've been slacking since I got the Dota 2 beta key. Too addictive and fun, but I'd much rather be playing SC2 since I want to get to a highly competitive level.
Another game that I play is Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. Cool game from 2004 but it's very unpopular and not many people play it these days. The ones that are left are good competition though. I also like Left 4 Dead 1 but it also suffers from lack of many people playing it.

LoL's required APM isn't really high. At least if we talk about key presses. If your mouse makes noise however…

I believe I already posted here, but here's a quick update:

I bought Diablo 3 last night and ARMA 2 today. I owned OA for some reason without having the general game, so I decided to buy it and plan to play with my brother in his TRU (tactical realism unit). If anyone here is into that kind of thing, PM me here and hopefully we can get you recruited and set up!

Still pubbing CoD4 (promod only) and BO if anyone here is interested in playing either of those with me as well!

I'm getting back into CoD, against my better judgement I guess. Started with some MW3 but quickly went back to Blops, doing some WaW in between too, I really love Treyarchs map designs and I'm starting to get really excited for Blops 2.

Grinding my way through Kingdoms of Amalur too, don't know why but I can just sit and play that for hours on end.

What are your thoughts on GO? I personally can't stand it coming from CoD. I didn't mind Source, but they're back to the same maps...I just don't understand why they can't develop new ones...

They won't develope new maps cause the majority of people still playing CS don't want new maps, a lot of people still play Dust2 religiously.

Yeah but there's what, 16 maps in CoD4, unless you're playing a 24/7 Killhouse or Shipment server you have variety. CS has some great maps that get very little play time, Inferno, Militia, Tides and Piranesi just off the top of my head.

I installed TF2 now that it's free, and I enjoy it. I also play trackmania a little bit.
I like LoL quite a bit, but since I haven't played in a long time I've gotten a little rusty. I have also started playing Combat Arms, I don't know why, but I love that game. I know its kind of crappy, but I get so much joy from playing it.
I just got Nuclear Dawn, and Im going to see how I like that later today.

I used to play TF2 a bunch before they added all the hats, customizable weapons, and made it free to play.  I think the game was a lot more fun in the beginning stages as you could really test your skill against people with the same weapons. 

Currently I've been playing blacklight: retribution, which is a free 2 play fps.  It's pretty damn fun for being a free game and the graphics are pretty damn good too.  Anyone that loves to play an fps should definitely try it.

I recently reinstalled CounterStrke:Source in preparation fo the new CS game slated for August. I am also somewhat playing SWTOR, but I doubt I will let my subscription renew in next month.  Even with server merges, group finders, and ranked warzones (pvp), there is too much repetition in the missions between the different classes. Diablo 3 grinding nature of gameplay burnt me out quick too.  At least FPS games like CS or BF3 don't force you to farm for days to get decent gear.

Right now I'm mostly playing TF2, Minecraft, and a bunch of indie games. Part of that is because I can't play much other than source games. I might get back into Nullpo Mino (tetris clone) though, I used to pass a lot of time in boring classes with that game.

My GFX card is slowly dying, so I can't really push it as hard as I used to(it's underclocked right now). I'm going to pick up a GTX 670 when it finally goes, and then I'll work on replacing the rest of my computer as I can(switching from AMD to Intel) and going with upper midrange parts as I can afford them. After that, the list of titles I will be playing will expand. I've got no ETA on this though, as there are a lot of other things I must also attend to.

Too bad there isnt bunny hopping, the modded servers are alot better, no shroom hats, and the T's look like older T's. In the beta, it too me a while to get used to figuring out who was on my team or not. But the nades need work, they currently suck.

Tribes: Ascend.

If you're tired of slow FPS's then this is the game for you. Plus, it's designed with PC's in mind instead of being a console port, so it makes it that much more important.

The game is really awesome and it takes a lot of skill to play it, which makes it that much more rewarding when you win fights. It's not twitch shooting like CoD where whoever presses the shoot button first wins. Well worth checking out.

Playing WOW and Batman: Arkham City, got it on Newegg for ten bucks. Sad to say that I'm fairly mediocre playing these games. Wow needs you to play constantly to get good, and v the controls for Batman AC when gliding, swooping, dive bombing, etc, begs for a controller, I feel like I need a third hand to do it properly with a mouse and keyboard.

Played CS: GO last night, all in all was fairly unimpressed. Something about it felt a little off. Maybe it's because I've got so used to "this is a bad guy skin, this is a good guy skin" and all the skins now just seem to be some small variation of tan.

I was playing a gunga. . .sorry Arms Race, and it was cycling through the new weapons, and i'm like "What the hell are these things" LOL.

CS:GO. Glad to be back into Counter Strike after moving on from Source a couple years ago. While there are a lot of changes that need to be made, I am very happy with it so far.

I also recently picked up borderlands 2. Pretty fun game so far. I didn't play the first one, so it's all fresh.

I also play CS:GO (first time back to the game since...56k?!), I've been playing Bastion (great indie adventure game), and I have been an on-and-off WoW player since release.


CS:GO's rather 2D gameplay is a nice welcoming back. I played most of the CoD series, but CS and Left4Dead retain simplicity of FPS to keep it fun and quick to dive in. Customizing perks/killstreaks/guns/challenges can just be too much when all you want to do is play an FPS...

I'm enjoying it.  Then again, I haven't played WoW for about 3 years.  So, I'm sure experience may vary.

ArenaNet has some short comings that they need to address, but the game itself is fairly solid.  Few tweaks to their sPvP queueing regarding queueing with friends and I'd be content.  WvW is fun with a group, too.

Steam will be releasing a Linux client soon: http://steamforlinux.com/ ...and the list of games: http://steamlinux.flibitijibibo.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

Something about the URL in that second link that just raises red flags for me.  Maybe I'm over paranoid...

Yes, it's absolutely clear, no worries.
That Steam for Linux is a good thing, we can only hope that it will push developers to make their games available on Linux :)

Speaking of roms, I'm getting a RetroLink SNES USB controller. I would have preferred an NES controller since that's what I'll be mainly playing, but you can do so much more with the SNES controller as it has ABXY and LR instead of just AB. Ergonomically they were better designed as well, with the rounded edges.

What are you talking about! The NES controller is the most ergonomic controller EVER MADE. Also, I need to pick up a USB NES/SNES controller one of these days as well..

15 bucks on fleabay takes it home. I'll post a review of my RetroLink SNES controller when it gets in today/tomorrow. From everything I've read avoid the "tomee" brand if possible, it looks like crap and you only have to spend 5 bucks more for the RetroLink

On a side note, has anybody else played the demo for Xcom-Enemy Unknown? I was so impressed I preordered. Besides a couple of little misses (and a few improvements) over the original, it seems like a very faithful update. It got my 50 bucks for preorder, and that says a lot since the last time I paid 50 bucks for a game was when I played console games and had no choice. Bought Civ V on first price drop for 30 bucks and that was a big deal.


But there's some value added here, it's got the normal assortment of TF2 garbage (stopped playing for a year, i'll play an occasional arena or MvM match nowadays) as well as some in game aesthetic upgrades (i'm looking forward to the "classic soldier" skin haha)

But if enough people preorder (and they will) a free copy of Civ V that I can gift to my wife so we can play together online. True love.

I've ordered GW2, should be here today. I'm excited to try something different. Regardless of the new content w/ MOP, I'm just ready for something new that isn't another WoW clone. From what I've read about GW2, a WoW clone is what it is not, so I can't wait to try it.

It's definitely not a WoW clone. I have't put much time into it yet, but I've enjoyed what I have put into it. Not that I'm not going back and giving WoW another try (on a trial account) at the request of a friend who started playing again. I have my doubts that I'll stick around playing it though.

The carrot that kept me playing WoW for as long as I did was already shrinking and with GW2, it's too minuscule to really invest money, time and emotion into anymore.  It's like going from SD to 1080pHD for me.

That's what I wanted to hear. Anyway, I'm more of a casual gamer myself. I don't have the time to meet for raiding week in and week out, and I like the idea of being able to PVP with skill being the focus instead of gear. I've got a nice computer and a 3D 120HZ monitor and a great graphics card, I can't wait to start playing. The game arrives from Amazon today! :)

Still? I didn't know those servers were still on :P

I had a friend get burned pretty hard on that game come to think of it. He's a professional MMO hacker for gold farming, the kind of guy who made glider bot in WoW if any of you remember that. He took the time to RE the entire client and build one that used incredibly limited graphics such that you could run about 50 clients on a high end PC at that point in time. He did hundreds of hours of work under the impression it was going to be the next big thing. Kind of a shame how that worked out xD.

Lately most of my time is dedicated to SC2/SSF4. I have a ton of games on Steam that I play every so often, but none that I'm really digging my teeth into yet it seems. Despite this fact, the Summer Sale still manages to take my money...

No kidding, this sounds just like me. I Have at least 25 games I picked up during the Steam Holiday Sale and Summer Sale. Yet I've played no more than 30 hours split between them all. Skyrim was the biggest disappointment of all, particularly since it's the only one I spent more than $10 on.

In the meantime, I easily have several hundred hours between SC2 and SSF4:AE.

Edit: Just noticed how old the post I quoted is. I was certain I jumped to the last page of this thread and it just happened to be the last post on the page.

FINALLY beat FTL on Normal with the Zoltan ship the other day. I kept getting lucky finds. I think I must have found 4 droids/weapons within 2 sectors that I sold. By the end I had 2 ion cannons, an artemis launcher and the Halberd beam. Also had full cloaking device which is great for when the last boss blitzes 100 lasers, rockets and droids at you during it's second form

Haha bought a game called Kerbal Space Program and spend hours last night designing rockets.. And watching them fail spectacularly. Great game though!

Played the demo till 4:00 A.M. and dreamt of rockets.

I prolly spent 2 hours trying to get a "honeycomb" design of fuel rockets connected by struts to work, but it kept clipping the launch tower on takeoff and spinning wildly out of control.

Highest height I got was just over 1M meters. (1000 Km) and I never escaped the gravitational pull of the planet you start on, but wow a fun sandbox game for sure.

Is there any goal/point/storyline in the full game. I think the demo is locked on .13 but the full is on .16 or something?

The full version is on .17 I believe, and it has a much larger solar system to explore. I think the demo only has the starting planet and 1 or 2 moons, and the sun. No story or goals yet, however they are adding a career mode in the near future, so I think that will probably contain goals! The full version also has tutorials which are helpful, because the learning curve for the game can be kind of steep when you're trying to figure out how to escape a planet's gravity and such.

The center of mass and center of lift need to be close/on top of one another for airplanes to work properly. I've been trying to design an effective spaceplane that can orbit, but have yet to be successful  :( the flight model is pretty wonky on planes in this game too, I have lots of difficulty flying efficiently.

It's basically Borderlands 1.5 It's definitely fun, but my main issue is the difference between classes merely comes down to passives, which seem like lazy design in that respect. And don't even get me started of Axton. If you are going to create a pet class, leave some room for varied game play, other classes have an active signature skill, but Axton just plops down a turret with no interaction. A passive within a passive tree. Ugh. But the game is worth a buy, sorry I rant on game design.

I know, slayers was one of my favourite teams. Puzzle and coca going to LoL breaks my heart, what a waste of talent. Even though I'm almost exclusively playing dota these days Starcraft will always be my one true love.

Just finished playing Sleeping Dogs, that game was much more fun than GTA ever was.

But I think being Asian American had something to do with that.

Regardless, anyone who hasn't given it a chance yet because of its stupid name is missing out.

Yeah, I'm not sure if it would sell better under it's current title or as True Crime: Hong Kong.

Even the devs said activision was a fool to sell off the game in the state it was, they apparently simply added polish and threw it up for sale.

Personally i'm playing so much XCom that i'm getting burnt out. I'm not even past the first alien base raid because i've restarted about 10 times thinking "I learned something this game, I can do better.

But it's still really fun.

My wife is playing Alan Wake, and enjoying it.

I still get in a bit of TF2, CIV V, FTL and KSP lol acronyms

Been playing Darksiders and Darksiders 2 lately, they're great fun so I don't spend much time talking about them. However; just now I, Horseman of Death, wanted to speak some king-type in the realm of the dead. But no, I have to go beat a champion before they'll let me speak to the king. But wait, there's more; I have to get whatever you need to summon this champion as they're too lazy to do it for me.
Being Death I sort of expected more.

First playthrough was a piece of cake. Clear the game and unlock "True Vault Hunter Mode". Thats when the fun begins.

Oh man, the end game content in TVHM is beyond frustrating. All the lv53's that can take out my Zer0 in two shots, but require an armory of ammo to drop. As Scooter would say, 'Not cool bro not cool.'

I solo'd the entire campaign as a Mechromancer. Finished at lvl 36 (did the DLC as well). Didn't really have too many issues. I died a few times on the final section with all the bots they throw at you, but otherwise I rarely died or lost to bosses - in fact, most were way, way too easy. Once I unlocked clap for my Deathtrap he just became ridiculous in every battle - usually one shotting entire groups of enemies.

Maybe I need to reroll or try different weapons. My weapons have better stats than what's sold at the vendor. I just don't seem to be able to enough damage. I break cover, shoot at something to get its shield down, but I start getting hit and I have to take cover, the targets shield starts recharging and I'm right back to square one. Maybe I'm not doing something right.

Definitely not. You shouldn't really need to hide behind cover all that often in this game. Go for headshots / critical spots. Every enemy has critical spots where, if you hit it, they will die much quicker. Also, in early game if you get any fire weapons definitely use those as all flesh enemies are weak to them and the fire will typically cause them to stop shooting (as does hitting critical spots - it staggers them).

A tip for later in the game too - if you shoot the robots in the legs it will stagger them when they're running at you.

Thanks for this. I was using the wrong weapons. I had an incendiary gun and a gun that does explosive damage in my backpack, I equipped those and things have gotten a ton easier. I went right through two bosses without dying once. And the game is definitely getting much much more fun.

so i'm replaying assassins creed 2 and brotherhood (the italy ones, revelations focused on constintanople or iran?) and since i'm an old school gamer, i have to play the new xcom enemy unknown...

You need a server. Bukkit or Vanilla are the most common. Tekkit being a derivative of Bukkit. I run a Bukkit server for myself and a few friends, but there is a GH Minecraft server already...

Only generally play FPS games.

Currently:

Modern Warfare 3

Battlefield 3

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare

Ghost Recon (the original one on PC)

and Battlefield 2 (PC) with the Project Reality Mod

I got it gifted to me on release from a buddy who I did a favour for a while back (got him a game of similar value from a 4 pack). It has been out a while and I was surprised they didn't have a sale after XCOM Launched (or maybe that's why they aren't having a sale) because each pre-order of XCOM came with a copy of CIV V.

GaK is a good addition, though. It adds a lot of stuff that was removed from IV and jut enough new features and tweaks to make it worth it.

IDK If it's worth 30 bucks. It would be a fair value at 20 IMO because so much of the added content is stuff you'd expect from a patch (they fixed city states/Diplo victory and rolled it into the DLC instead of a vanilla patch? Weak, firaxis.)

CIV V and myself have a love-hate relationship.

It's as hard as you make it for yourself really. If you want to get high scores and use specific masks then some parts can be difficult, but if you're not fussed about your rating and use the most useful mask for a given level then it's not too demanding. I didn't really want to use the more powerful masks as it seemed borderline cheating, but in the end one stage of one level (second section of "Assault") eventually made me cave and use the quiet gunshots mask.

Lol, I thought the masks were just for looks. It's not that the gameplay is "difficult" as much as it is frustrating with trial and error, but really rewarding since you don't get to save (only saves each floor of the building you clear) after you kill a bunch of dudes you just look around panting like "****, ****, ****, **** I KNOW that wasn't the last guy....."

And the soundtrack is amazing! Volume++++ when you play Hotline Miami, after a few hours you will be tired with bloodshot eyes, lol. In a good way

Not sure if he was just trolling me but that's the stupidest ****in thing I've ever heard. NO FPS is better played than with a keyboard and a mouse.

Sports games, Driving games and maybe Flying games are better on the controller than the keyboard and that's it. Even the Driving and Flying games have their own peripherals if you care enough that are light years ahead of those little nubs.

This, although I think you meant to say that no FPS is better played with a controller than with a KB/mouse.
My brother keeps wanting me to play Halo with him, but every time I do it just doesn't feel fun. I keep saying it's like playing a driving sim with a keyboard. Pointless.
To me playing most FPS games with a console controller defeats the purpose of playing the FPS in the first place.
Also, as fun as some of they CoD games have been, I've learned to never take the games nor the playerbase seriously. Needless to say, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when they had a stream for the MLG finals of BLops on Xbox.

Not saying those who enjoy console FPS games are wrong, unless they claim using a controller is a superior way of playing. I even play some single player FPS games with a controller, although that's more to do with the game being outright unfriendly to mice, like BioShock.

Right, fixed that in the post to "no FPS is better played than with a KB/M"

that's more to do with the game being outright unfriendly to mice, like BioShock.

Maybe that's why I disliked Bioshock but my wife loved it.

I didn't even bother finishing it. Played probably 80 percent of the story and just quit.

Admittedly, I do play GoW3 with my BIL on occasion. The controls are stiff and clunky and I hate how slow it takes people to turn around (or how they just whip in circles when you touch the joystick if you crank the sensitivity)

It makes me laugh so hard when you see people using those FPS FREEK analog stick elongators (Basically clamps that make the sticks longer) or go so far as to mod their XBOX controller. What's the point?

I'd love to get a KB/M on 360, go into call of duty [year] and just outshoot everybody. angry 12 year olds everywhere.

My girlfriend is a massive massive fan of the first BioShock game and has played it several times.
Me, on the other hand... I haven't even gotten halfway because it's too scary so it's easier to go play TF2 or something instead of BioShock.
Doesn't help that I'm generally bad at finishing SP games.

I just didn't much care for the plot. I think I watched the ending sequence when my wife (then girlfriend) was playing and I was like "oh what's his name is the big bad. What a twist."

Maybe it was just me in that regard, but I didn't feel there was any notable story. Maybe it's because I've played games like TES where there's literally this whole nerdy world built around the game, or HL2 where the whole story is seamlessly woven around you while never leaving First Person or losing control of your character. (If valve wants you to look somewhere they'll trick you into watching the first person cutscene. They'll make a strange sound or something and you'll think "what's that" and look over there.)

Bioshock just felt like "here's a spooky underground city, here's a wrench, you work it out."

You know why "YOU" didn't feel like there wasn't any notable story or that the "twist" wasn't so great? it's because "YOU" weren't pushed and pulled for 16hrs, and then you find out... "would you kindly".

gonna reiterate that i'm not flaming or anything, just trying to illustrate that there's a different perspective of the player vs. the watcher, even the wife is equally scared as i am when i play resident evil, and she says "keep playing i want to see the rest".

I played the first bit of it. I got the lantern and read some letters. It seems well thought out but it just didn't hold my attention. I preferred to play it in the dark and "get into the atmosphere" but due to the fact that it was summer it would get dark around 9:00 PM and the kids would be going to bed around that time, so when I finally sat down to play it would be 9:30-10:00 and I would only play for an hour or so before bed. I do intend to finish it, but it didn't get me addicted.

It does seem fun, though.

On the subject of Bioshock, I think another reason I disliked it is because I was playing on Hard, and I was constantly running out of ammo because the enemies weren't any smarter, just had more HP, so fighting big daddies was just running backwards in circles shooting at them.

What kept me going was the puzzles / monster evasion. Maybe you are still in the "training" area --- there isn't really a designated training area, but I felt like the first chapter was just for introducing all the elements of the game. After about half way through the game, the story was very intriguing (started to really look for the journal pages, so I could hear the next narration.) DEFINITELY have to play in the dark, in complete isolation. This is the only way to really achieve the "scream like a b1tch" effect ;)

o_0 just remembered the part with the invisible "monster" that you only know where he is because of his footsteps. God, that creeped me out.

I'm quite sure I am. I think I just barely saw the first "monster" walking around and the game is telling you to hide from it. I had the lantern and solved a simple puzzle, so I may have just finshed that.

It get dark around the time I get off work nowadays, I might revisit it.

On another note, i've been daydreaming a lot about STALKER lately. I might have to revisit that one as well (played through the original twice and both sequels once.)

sanctum, binding of isaac, DLC Quest (ironically), et al.

Anyways, I just mean that I barely pay attention to the deals on steam anymore. They used to be really lucrative, but now it's a game I don't want, already own or have never heard of for 10 bucks instead of 20 and often to fully appreciate the game you have to get 5 addons that cost more than the deal itself lol.

I find myself buying games and never playing them, and now that i'm getting into DOTA 2 I doubt that will be changing any time soon.

That's all I was saying.
Title: Re: What computer games do you play?
Post by: vun on Mon, 19 November 2012, 12:12:39
The Binding of Isaac only has one cheap DLC that, at least from my point of view, adds content for those who have played it through and want more. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything when I play the game without the DLC. I'm okay with that.
What annoys me is the DLC for games like Magicka, DD and Sanctum where the DLC gives you different ways to play the game from the get-go and, like you mentioned, you feel that you need those to get the complete experience.
Title: Re: What computer games do you play?
Post by: kravlin on Mon, 19 November 2012, 12:28:51
same feeling here about Binding of Isacc, it adds a bunch of content, but it's not necessary to enjoy the game, esp since the game requires so much time without the DLC. In fact, because the DLC makes the game harder, I would honestly say that you should play it without the DLC first, until you've unlocked a good number of the items so that you actually stand a reasonable chance.

There are other "indy-ish" games that have DLC that do it right though. I really liked how Killing Floor only had cosmetic DLC (until the most recent DLC set that is). So you never lost out by not buying DLC, but if you wanted more than basic customization it was a couple bucks. I'm less happy that they released a "weapon pack DLC", but at the same time the guns don't remove playability or make it impossible to get any achievements, they just add some silly options to the gameplay, like a buzzsaw crossbow, so i see that as more acceptable.

The DLC for DD and Magica piss me off, because they serve the same function map packs for big AAA titles do, which is to largely segment the playerbase, or nickle and dime you.

The good deals can be had on Steam during the summer and winter holiday sales, with both AAA and indie titles for sale at 75-80% off. I don't think I'll be buying anything in the near future though. Ever since I got into SC2, and more recently Dota 2, there's not much else I want to play. I still have over 20 games that I haven't played once and probably never will.

I will never play Dota 2 simply out of spite. All my buddies got keys within a few weeks of signing up and stopped playing almost immediately. I entered the beta key essay contest almost 2 years ago, then later singed up for the beta key list . 8 months later I get my key. So much spite. Apparently 4+ years as a tester is not enough of a qualification ಠ_ಠ

Thing is i've been a member since like 2006 and have got like 300 games in my library, so the packs aren't worth it since I already own half the games in them, only ones I get in those sales is the newer ones that are on good sales, which are slimmer pickings than you might think. I don't much care for incremental games, and the only games that have come out recently that I much care to play are ACIII and FC3. I already picked up XCOM.

Sorry to hear that noisyturtle. It's really a rather fun game, but not having played the original I don't know how it compares. At least you got a key, eh?

Choppers are easy mode in that game though, because you can actually hook onto them and hijack them, causing more carnage.

The landmark capture/destruction is pretty repetative but not nearly as bad as JC1. The missions are usually solid and fun enough even though the story, as usual, is a pretty flimsy pretext for why you need to drive a car fast and/or shoot ****.

If you want a real challenge, try to destroy that entire oil refinery on the island that looks like a skull in one go. Took me almost 2 hours.

Also, I suggest fully upgrading that little black one-man jet (can't remember the name) to do your scouting missions as it's crazy fast and fairly inexpensive. Just do flybys on landmarks (I got 100 percent discovery but not 100 percent completion before my HDD took a dump one day.)

Also check out the mods for the game, especially the unbreakable tether and multi-tether. Add tremendously to the fun if you get bored because you can just chain a whole bunch of things together and laugh and laugh and laugh.

I am level 15 now and have arrived in New Vegas to confront somebody in a casino. They wanted to take my guns so I started shooting all of the armed people working at the casino. I'm now a villain with the people at the strip. I've also got Boone as a companion. I'm using a laser rifle of some sort, it's one that charges itself. I want to buy a fancy one from the automated vendor just outside New Vegas but they're very expensive. The game is definitely fun now it just took me a little time to get into it.

How do you go playing FPS on a console?  I am used on the PC to twitching the mouse to do a 180 to see what is behind me, but as I understand it the console has a rocker switch or something you push to turn sideways relatively slowly.

Is that right?  Or not?

It's not too bad, but I do much prefer using a keyboard and mouse for FPS games. I usually just crank the sensitivity up on the controller pretty high so I can still kinda twitch and turn around like on the PC. I really need to get another gaming rig to play these new games on PC, but one thing I do love about the Xbox is the achievements and gamerscore. On Steam I never really care much to get achievements because it doesn't seem to matter as much, but on Xbox I love doing it because having a high gamerscore is awesome  :p

Tried. Didn't like.

Basically I was trying to repair a turret and got shot about 10 times. So I went sniper and found out that only one faction (there are 3 main) has a good sniper rifle. Went back to engineer and tried to heal a tank which promply backed over me, killing me instantly. Nobody on the team was using teamspeak or mics and there was no communication. We eventually lost the base and I uninstalled later that day.

Perhaps if you had 3+ friends to play with you could do something but for the most part it seemed like a random cluster****.

100% agreed Internetlad, unfortunately.

-nobody seems to communicate. At  the most you will see people using the Galaxy to take busloads of people and just drop them into combat.
-performance issues on my computer. I Have an NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M plus 8 gigs of RAM and an i7....  why can't I play at over 30 frames per second most of the time?

Needless to say I've ended my subscription based on the performance issue, let alone the fact that like you said, it's a gigantic cluster ****. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

It's a neat idea. A lot of people seemed to have connection issues. Some yellow faction guy was warping around so badly I thought it was intentional, found out later he was just lagging.

If you had about 4 buddies who all had mics and did eleet squad tactics it would probably be a blast.

Yeah, the co-op part is great fun.
Nothing beats the singleplayer part though. Like Jim Sterling said; they should record a bunch of Cave Johnson stuff every year, because that part of the game was absolutely fantastic.

If you're concerned with the amount of people who play the game, you should definitely go with BF3. I personally don't care for either game, but I find that Black Ops 2 is much less exciting, it has a very few players, and it gets dry very quickly.

How is Tera Online?

It's an okay game, I played it for about 7 months before I quit. Not amazing, but not terrible either. It is a Korean MMO so it does has the aspects of one. The leveling curve is just right I'd say, it isn't very long by any means and it gives you enough time to practice and learn how to play your class. The action combat system feels pretty smooth and its fun, makes you have to actually pay attention somewhat in game because your gear ratings don't do the work for you. The PvE is fairly challenging at end game, but needs more content. And there isn't really any open world pvp currently, just instanced arena and BG pvp, but there's a lot of new features in the next big content update that are made to encourage open world pvp. There is also more raid content coming in the new update for 20 man raids.

The game started off decently enough, but a lot of people have quit it for other games or are just fed up with the current state of the game. Hopefully the next content update can change things, but the question is whether it's too little too late or if it can make a comeback and draw people back in.

it's not too bad really, i've been playing it with a few friends and once you figure out how to put together some decent builds, you can usually do well relatively consistently.  it has some glaring issues though, such as netcode worse than 10-15 year old video games, UI bugs, crashes, etc.

I tend to be low key on guns, and generally use Tony (the Tiger), who's special ability consists of having faster executions.
And boy oh boy, do those dogs piss me off lmao xD
I personally love killing people with doors, so i use the horse mask. I stick to the knife as often as possible as well. Obviously sometimes i have to switch to a gun, but i do prefer the knife. Or katana :D

I bought Torchlight 2 yesterday because Steam knew I hadn't had time to snatch it up so they kept it on sale for me.  Really fun game, still in the early levels but it brings back the good memories of playing Diablo 1 and 2.

I really don't like modern video games. The most modern examples of games I like are the Souls series and DustForce (but only just). Super metroid was one of my favourite games, I think it is still the best 2D platformer made for platforming.

If you like 2D platformers, I recommend you try a game called Iji.

Otherwise I like typical things like PS:T and The Longest Journey. I don't like TES, and prefer the much less popular Outcast to Morrowind.

It depends on what you're after, really. My favorite games lately have been To The Moon (doesn't really count as a game :P ), Cave Story+ and SpaceChem. My brother has over 1000 hours clocked in the Binding of Isaac too. My steam library is a little inflated from Humble Bundles/ Steam sales so I've only sorta worked my way through it. (Is Castle Crashers indie? It is THE BEST).

I'm mainly an MMO player, but also play League of Legends pretty regularly.

I've played World of Warcraft, Aion, and Tera Online. Currently trying out the Age of Wushu beta.

Just recently started playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic as well. First time playing this old game.

No longer playing Age of Wushu, probably won't get into any MMOs until I finish this build up of single player RPGs I haven't finished starting with SW: KOTOR, Dragon Age: Origins, and maybe Mass Effect 2 after that.

I am burned out on FPS TPS. I wish there were some good adventure game like Myst series that was new. That would really hit the spot. I haven't found any good adventure/puzzle game like that in a long time. Too many of them are filled with illogical trial and error combine the random object 'puzzle' and horrid QTE, just make me rage. Anyone else like these kind of game, anything I missed that is worth playing made in last 2 years?

Its complicated. I used to play a lot of FPS games but since i suck so bad at them i gave up. Occasionally i still play them if a friend plays it.
The last big game i played was Max Payne 3, but i felt it is a drag though story and presentation is good.
Mostly i play older games and Rpg's. One of the old games i play is Starflight and just recently Planescape Torment. I actually really enjoy playing older games which is partly nostalgia and partly great gameplay.

mostly LoL now but I started getting into DotA a little bit but it is kinda mind blowing to learn all these new champions abilities and build paths and what each item does... that's mostly what's keeping me away. I'm already so immersed in LoL and already learned so much about it.

as a long time GW fan from the days of prophecies I couldn't skip buying GW2 after I've been waiting so long for it so I pre-ordered it. played it for about 2 weeks on release and then haven't touched it since then. it isn't a bad game and I really liked it but it isn't the same as when I was 14 and had a lot of time to spare and explore every bit of the game. I feel sad now thinking about it... I don't want to grow old and never play games again!
maybe I'll try to get more into it again when I find free time...

I love B/W 2. A lot of content in the game to play. I've put over 120 hours in it and I'm still not done.

Very excited for the X and Y, but I wished they would have incorporated the pokemon following the player deal from SS/HG!

ooh been playing CS:GO a tad myself lately. It's not bad, to be honest, i wasnt a huge fan of Source, but i think GO is a huge step up in many ways.

The best gun is the 400 dollar Tec-9. Decent accuracy and fire rate for a pistol and instant kill headshots on unhelmeted enemies. I had a 15 kill streak in a DM on inferno with only the Tec9 and knife against enemies using all sorts of snipers, ARs, SMGs etc. I swear you can't run out of bullets with that gun. It just keeps going and going and going. . .

and I'm not even that good at CS anymore.

Balance.

Yea it's region locked. I got the PAL (European) version, so buying games wouldn't be that big of a problem and it'll still be in English (I'm from the US).

i don't understand region locked anymore... sometimes things just don't apply.

region lock was a hold over from DVD, not to prevent piracy, but to prevent one country from seeing something before another can, stupid right? And now where everyone has access to itunes/amazon/netflix/ondemand, we have region lock on games still... why?

And it costs more to import!

2 years after final fantasy xiii came out, after buying the regular american horrible one with the horrible voices, i got the international version, basically the chinese version, it's japanese voices and english subs. It cost me 80bucks to import it from yesasia (or some similar site), when the north american one was going for 30bucks new.

region and localization is silly, why!!!

i guess i can understand localization, a lot of americans are lazy and don't want to read subtitles, ugh.

Anybody else play Cortex Command? I used to love it as a time waster but it's got to the point where they brought the view in too close (can't see much of the screen) and made the AI unfairly hard (They'll shoot you before you see them, it used to be the opposite) and it turned from a shoot-em-up time waster to a frustration simulator.

It's still a fantastic concept and game, however. At one point I had a mod for the T1000 Terminator (basically unkillable) with a medium range shotgun. SO fun walking through custom made levels blasting hovercraft out of the sky and watching them crash and explode into a fireball, throwing parts across the map.

I should actually check if I can get prior builds of the game to install, I'd love to go back to that, despite that it's a "lesser" build of the game.

Guild Wars 2 was fun for me while leveling.  But once I hit max level and created the best set of armor/weps it got very boring.  I think once I hit max level I went and did WvW for a couple days and destroyed people, then got bored with it.  Structured PvP was fun for a while, but I burned out on that as well.

Then again, FTL is only $10, slightly less if you buy it when it's on sale on Steam. If you buy it from the humblebundle store you pay in dollars, so no $->Ä trickery, and you get a Steam key.

SRSLY! I wish they would drop the digital download to $45, then I would immediately buy it. Guild Wars II looks so fanceh, and I have a 660 Ti, which would run it quite well methinks.

Guild Wars 2 was fun for me while leveling.  But once I hit max level and created the best set of armor/weps it got very boring.  I think once I hit max level I went and did WvW for a couple days and destroyed people, then got bored with it.  Structured PvP was fun for a while, but I burned out on that as well.
I've had a couple of months break from GW2, I gave up when the people I played with left and the only exploration left was WvWvW areas. Now people have started playing again, so I've started as well and it's pretty fun to be playing again. I don't really like the fact that there's not much to actually do once you hit 80 apart from keep grinding the same stuff you've been doing so far. Yes, there's cool armours and weapons to go for, but they all require too much grinding and crap to be worth the effort. I much prefer the old GW, although nobody plays that anymore so I'm rarely on these days.

Watched Day9's Day off w/ FTL last night. Now I want to try that game. Oh wait, I'm broke, and I really really want an ErgoDox. OK, maybe another time.

Anyway, I've installed the original Starcraft on my box... but I can't beat even the stupid AI yet.

Was FTL on Humble Bundle? Or am I missing something?

If you go on their website (http://www.ftlgame.com/) you can buy it directly, and they use the humble store. There's no humble storefront, but they handle purchases for a few indie games outside of the bundles.

Some of the offices look like cool places to work.  A cube farm, or a room with a view.  Although most of the maintenance corridors seem to be very, very long, with a small door at each end, and lots of big machinery in the middle o.O

It is a great game, one of the best I have ever played to be honest. And it really saddened me when the creator announced he wouldn't be holding any future updates do to the birth of his new baby, understandable, but sad.

By the way, you don't need Hamachi to play online servers, only if you are hosting without a port-forward.

As I was playing, I was wondering if there was even group play..I didn't read much about it. Gotta tell my roommate to download it, in hopes it's not as repetitive as D3. Then again, do I want to spend hours on the beta, when I could save myself for the real deal? hmmmm so many thoughts.

It's good but can be very difficult getting the hang of wallrunning as the aliens as ****ing everything seems to get into your way. I assume if you were really good at it, you could make it look awesome jumping from wall to wall.

The marine faction is typical FPS shootemup, but the aliens are pretty cool.

as far as RTS/FPS blends, I preferred Nuclear Dawn, but frickin nobody play(ed/s) that so.

There won't be another wipe so everything you do now will continue into the full game, also this game could be in beta for years or even perpetually as there may be no "full release" per say. A good amount of mmo's have been running for years and are still in beta.

I say play the hell out of it.

Played Hotline Miami  over the weekend. . .  very mixed feelings. The game itself is simple but fairly fun. I almost think of it more of a puzzle game than a action game, although it has elements of both. The controls were very unlikable. Very stiff and weird. Compare it to even simple flash games and I had more trouble pinpointing where I wanted to go on screen in H.M.

The coolest stuff was not even the actual playing of the game, it was the menus, the ambience, and, yes, the music (which probably brings back memories if you went to raves in the 80s) I loved the story once it got going. In fact, I think that's why I kept playing. I actually preferred the story to the game. Sort of like a surrealist "The Professional" with more violence. Game itself? Take it or leave it. I've played browser games with more substance.

I agree with what you say about Hotline Miami for the most part. They really could have spent some more time to make the controls much better. I am not sure, but I also think some of that poor control was intentional, like bad 80's game. Though, you should check out some of that 'dev previous games like Clean Asia... you might not think HM is so bad anymore lol.

In my two years of play League, I have only seen 1 person who modified the game and cheated.  I don't know if I just never see it or if Riot is on the ball when it comes to keeping that crap out of the game but I'm glad to report cheating is not a big factor in the game. 

On a side note, has anyone been having problems with Torchlight 2 and connectivity issues while playing with 3 or more people?  This started for me right as soon as we started Act II and basically if there are 3 or more of us playing at a time the game freezes in loading screens, when one of us loads in it boots another person out and other fun occurrences that basically make the game unplayable.  I submitted a ticket and after days of trouble shooting and emails back and forth Runic said it is probably a known dsync issue within the game that they are aware of and are working on fixing.  My question is has anyone had this issue and found away around it or am I at the mercy of how fast Runic gets this issue resolved?

Most people play games for the instant gratification provided by "Winning"... That's the current most successful design focus, namely quick respawn and short term medal award system.

Whatever joy outside of that which "you-personally" have derived from gaming is not common with typical gamers..

Last games I played were all KMMOs. PangYa, Vindictus and Mabinogi. It's been such a long time though...I haven't been on since I went back to school. Mabi was probably my favorite though :)

I just can't get into competitive online first person shooters knowing that a lot of the players cheat. I love LoL, because even if somebody did make hacks for it, it would be very easy to see that they are cheating.

I don't think I've played somebody that was cheating yet, but I didn't know that it ran rampant like that. I can't bring myself to play LoL or Dota because I suck at games like that, and the people seem even worse when they realize you don't know where to go. I just went with CS because I'm decent at FPS's, and they all sound like CoD trolls.

I've played with some people who are cheating on CS:S and GO. Honestly unless you're a tryhard who needs to win every match, It's all in fun.

Even if you are a tryhard, then consider it training!

I really hate playing with the tryhards, especially at my rank because they're always yelling at me like I know how to play, then yell at me more when they find out my rank. Like, chill out bro, I've been playing S&D on CoD for the past 5 years. I still have plenty of run and gun still left in me, since I'm used to being able to run into a room and killing a majority of a camping team. It sadly doesn't work that way in CS. :-[

The best is when somebody is blatantly hacking. Saw somebody who had speed & aimbot, would be in the enemy spawn within seconds of round start and kill half of to our whole team before dying/winning/running away.

I miss the days of micspam though. Some of my fondest memories were making people either laugh or rage out over the fact I was playing "Banana Phone" while running around CS_ASSAULT with a mac10

I got really into it and played it religiously after school from when HL2 came out and for about 2yrs following on dial-up becasue my area hadn't gotten broadband at that time..

was so good... though I never got into private matches and just spent my time mocking 'clans'... never understood (to this day) the point of cheating, just seemed like a waste of time... closest I got to that was me and a friend ran our own CS:S server thatwould have all kinds of random **** going on.. that was pretty fun..

You'd need to get a list of LoL players on GH and see who plays on what server, then go from there. I don't play much, but if 4 more people here play on EUW then I'd be down, I can still play fairly decent.

I am not sure if i just suck or if other are just better or cheat, but i am really bad with CSS now. So i gave up on it. It was fun while it lasted.

There really aren't a lot of cheaters, at least not in my experience. Then again I'm fairly picky about the servers I play on, so that helps with avoiding cheaters. There is quite a skill gap, so I don't think your opponents are cheating, it does require a fair amount of practice to get decent, at least compared to other shooters like the CoD series.

Maybe that's why I've never had issues with "cheaters"

There are some players that are just obscenely good. If I came in from playing CoD where things like movement, footsteps, radar, location, etc etc etc didn't matter, I might think somebody is hacking too when they pop out from behind long hall in Office and kill me in a 1 shot with the AK. If you break it down, the first shot on the AK is exceedingly accurate if you know how to aim it, and even the second follow up shot is not bad. Were you running? He probably heard your footsteps, or if you just killed one of his buddies, he knows exactly where you're going from the radar. He's played the map hundreds or thousands of times, and learned the habits and behaviors of each team.

It's not hard to think it could happen.

You would never know, Internetlad. One of the most commonly known hacks which is practically universal to all first person shooter is "chams" or wall hacks (ability to see through the walls, and therefore predict where they will be when visible, and able to be shot. This is a highly unfair advantage, for obvious reasons.)

Add me on League of Legends my fellow geeks! I play slow and conservative, and I play to win. Hit Me UP.

Got it and started playing as well. It IS a game to play while stoned out of your mind  ^-^ --- I can see how drinking would cause dizziness though!

Often by speccing the character, you can see them "lead" their shots through the wall instead of hugging the inside corner of the wall/doorway like a normal player would. Worse still is when they blatantly look or stare at enemies through a wall. Often somebody will be able to diagnose if somebody is walling from how they behave rather than how many kills they have.

at the end of the day, though, it's just a game. I suppose it's not for everybody whether the reason be fear of hacking or simply not enjoying the experience.

That I can tell the difference between now. I just had my first experience with a cheater on the opposing team. Some people are actually really respectable when it comes to a cheater on their team, and actually try to kick them. I can understand hacking on a casual game, but in competitive that is just wrong...

how far in is that? I just finished the medusa (beached boat) after tripping balls in the mushroom cave.

I'm playing on medium and it seems like sometimes the enemy is looking right frickin at me and doesn't see me because there's a box covering my left leg or a 3 inch thick tree in front of me. Although it makes the game easier it sure does break the immersion.

Or how you can use a silenced weapon and drop some guy screaming, and nobody around seems to care, but you throw a pebble into a pile of sand and holy **** sound the alarms everybody in the area is on it.

EDIT: Heron, Shark, Spider lol.

I don't get the skill trees in this. They seem to be filled with completely unrelated skills. For example, the Heron is supposed to be long range killing (IE Guns?) but it's filled with CQC and sneak kill skills haha. The sniper upgrade is in the Spider IIRC, and I have no clue what that theme is supposed to be.

It's like they couldn't figure out what was supposed to go where, so they just put all the best ones at the end somewhere.

I have an NC on Connery, a TR on Matterson, and VS on Miller. I play mostly the VS on Miller because I like to play in the day when the wife is at work. And since its night time in Europe and Miller is a very competitive server, it works out perfectly.

I'll be honest... I'm not very good... But I'm getting better... You can find me as moonshake on Matterson, m00nshake on Miller, or stubbornmfka on Connery.

I was assuming. I got no proof or anything.
The time i was playing like hardcore i was fairly good. But i never got in to the top and now i am not even in-it, if you know what i mean. I try looking for a nice hangout server where vulgar language is not key. I just can't stand the talks sometimes anymore but i am fine if someone is way better then me. Still, CS is one of the better games in that regard and i always felt that CoD was never a true game for competition. On CSS you have a lot of choices of running a very refined server something i did not find for CoD. But CoD MW was at least a good and fun shooter. Did not like anything that came after it.
Btw. i remember that time we had a server and were in TWL you needed to run a couple of anticheats software. There were always daily cheaters banned. Of course i can not say for right or wrong but it did happen.

Recommended:  FarCry3

I highly recommend that you check out FarCry3.  It's not the greatest game of all time, but it is very enjoyable.  The interface feels like a terribad port from a console-based game.  The interface simply sucks, there is no way to deny it (e.g.  press and hold "E" to interact with objects, the jumping/ climbing "Spacebar" is st00pid, and the "Mash C, Space, W" is beyond retarded and comes straight from X-box.  Also, the stealth elements of the game are a direct rip-off of Thief and Hitman, and they are totally dumbed-down for 12 year old gamers.  But even with these problems, the game is still pretty good, and will hold your interest for 60+ hours, if not more.  Get it today.

Well, I play a few games, not just one. I can't play one single game for 4 hours a day, everyday. I need sabbaticals if I do that. I'll do that on occasion, but never for more than a week or two.

Also, the stealth elements of the game are a direct rip-off of Thief and Hitman, and they are totally dumbed-down for 12 year old gamers.

Yeah, kind of dumb when a skinny tree is covering half your screen and a guy 4 feet away from you staring in your direction doesn't "see" you.

lulz.  Yup.  Dumbed way-way down.  Remember the original Hitman: Codename 47 game?  The bad guys could spot you clear across Hong Kong bay, at night, when you were crouching behind a garbage dumpster.  And even when you were in disguise, the would spot you immediately if you ran, or carried the wrong gun, or crouched, or loitered, or did basically anything weird.  By contrast, in FarCry3, when I was dressed up as a Merc-recruit, I ran, jumped, dove in the water, waved all manner of exotic machine guns around and nothing happened.  What kind of a Merc-recruit goes for a swan-dive and swims around the bosses' boat while the boss is lecturing all of the other Merc-recruits on the deck of his boat?  Nobody thought that was suspicious?  Rly?

Oh and as it turns out, Ni No Kuni is a hot HOT peice of garbage. Like total proper ****. Don't let it's awesome artwork and amazing cut scenes and voice acting fool you, the game is total ****. Imagine the worst kind of JRPG, where you spend 99% of the time mindlessly grinding with a ****ty battle system, and with AI party members dumber than PSX AI.

It's total **** and I'm pissed off that I got tricked into wasting 15hrs of my life.

Oh boy do I regret buying Aliens: Colonial Marines. Really I ought to have seen this coming, as a decent Alien title hasn't been released since the ill-fated Jaguar, and even then it may have just looked great because it was surrounded by unplayable flackware. Anyway, A:CM is bad. Really bad. Don't do it, hands off that 'purchase for myself' button and save yourself the pain and money. You'd be better off simulating the experience by wandering around the hull of a boat whilst being chased by anorexic models and giving yourself a HJ with a cheese grater.

On the other side of the proverbial joystick is Antichamber. A truly unique puzzle platformer in the same vein as the Portal series with some actually thought provoking mechanics.

Depends what old is. I am 48 now and still playing though not as much as i used to. But i agree that FPS is now not as nearly enjoyable as it used to. The talk is mostly what turns me really off and i enjoy more the mature and tactical approach to these kind of games.
Now i waste my time more on older titles and replays of great games. I think i can not part with the gaming aspect of life. :)

Wonder why it's got such an ass metacritic score then. That's a voxel shooter with destructible enviroments right? Not unlike Guncraft?

Been stuck onto "Dayz" for 2 months straight.

I got out of it as I don't have enough time to sit on a roof or run through a bush for an hour. It's a cool game but all the new stuff they added made it a little too overbearing for me. I assume everybody plays shoot on sight now because if the disease, cold, food poisoning, starvation or zombies don't kill you, then other players will.

I always tried to play the "good guy" and just ended up dying a lot or getting shot by my "teammates" that I had grouped up with when they realized I had good loot.

I might reinstall now that the full mod is out. Hopefully that will cease having to **** around with update files every 3 hours.

Pretty much people are bored with the simplicity of the game and lack of textures, and the fact that your inventory (weapons too) are pretty limited. I myself find it highly emersive (well at least the WW1 mode... It's great, digging trenches and tunnels, popping up behind the enemy, or fortifying a base.)

I often play as hero as well, help people to get on their feet but leave quickly once we got them a gun. I play with my brothers and close buddies so our backs are pretty much covered. We are basically the salvation army in the server. Taking out bandit squads and saving newbies is what we do all day long.

My greatest achievement was destroying a large camp(6 tents and 5 vehicles) belonging to a bandit squad with 2 bandit guard at that time. We kill one and escaped. I've never gotten such a rush even from the time i started gaming from Counter Strike 1.0

DUDE.... Mark Of The Ninja is a really good game. I cannot recommend it enough. Rarely does a game leave me wanting more after finishing it. I either grow disinterested, or distracted by another game but MotN is so goddam good I cannot get enough. The controls are super tight, the art and animation is superb (think Jackie Chan Adventures,) and whoever did the level design should get a freaking medal. All these little details, like how the camera adjusts whether you're outside, sneaking, indoors, or in a vent. Killing guards is super satisfying and feels visceral making you feel like a total badass when you clear a tricky room in your own way without being detected. Man, the only drawback is it's a bit short but don't let that deter you, this game is amazing. Buy it right now, you will not regret it. Platformer of the year imo.

I sort of fell out around level 10. Had a good W/L ratio (something like 60-43-1?) and suddenly lost about 10 games in a row. Tried the game a week later and got absolutely stomped by "normal" bots (was playing co-op bot with a few buddies.)

It seems like players are either super pro (I've seen some level 1s with 3 games that sure as hell don't play like it. Pretty sure it's guys grinding for items, or trolling) or absolute retards (you know the players i'm talking about.)

Very rarely do you get an entire team of people who actually want to teamplay and have mics. Those are the good games, win or lose.

Anyway, I uninstalled. Maybe i'll try it again in the future. Maybe there's a level 10 hump that i've yet to get over. They really need to tweak the matchmaking, though, and they REALLY need to balance the heroes instead of adding 10 more every month. I know every hero is different but when you see drow, huskar, tusk, sniper, etc in every single game, it's pretty clear that every hero isn't "equal" and that there's a pool of about 10 heroes that are clearly "better".

I play 1-3 games of solo queue of Dota 2 per day, sometimes I'll still hop on WC3 and play some Dota 1, I'll play a few games of Dota 2 stack with buddies or something late at night, grind SC2 the rest of the day (stopped for now since WoL is irrelevant, once HotS is out I'll be back at it). For now I'm just looking for some good single player game to immerse myself in (I'm very picky, don't give me any suggestions).

Sifo, are you in one of the pro stacks or do you know any of the merlini/ jangsna people? IIRC there is/was a few Koreans playing on the higher level public matchmaking. Or what is your name on steam? XD I can remember most of the names of the good players that I encountered on pub games.

SeleCT stack who sometimes plays with Merlini but I'm not very good and I'm sure he's busy practicing with his new team. Yeah I'd be playing with Koreans... honestly most of the time you'll see me idling in friend's lists.

Take a step back and look at how stale it is, without comparing it to anything else. I don't care about how many people like it good on them, that's irrelevant to how good it is as a competitive game. Literally the SAME **** happens every game, but apparently that's what people like. Everyone has a set role, uses the same summoner spells, and participate in the same predictable big team fights in the few locations on the map. It's not exciting, you know what's going to happen. The skill cap is so low, and if you have enough understanding of the so called "metagame" in LoL, it hasn't changed since 2011. In something like LoL where there's low mechanics involve, the strategy has to be way more in depth than it currently is... I feel like I'm playing bots when I beat other people. And I never bothered to mindlessly grind to 30 in that **** JUST to play ranked, and buy runes and masteries and all that bull****. I played on a friend's account for 5 man ranked and it was okay.

tl;dr I enjoyed playing it for a bit with friends. I can't watch it because it's like watching a bad film I've already seen before. If you like watching it, good on you. Their competitive scene is doing the best so far in growth and they've reached their peak. But really, it's terrible.

Yeah, I'm hoping Arma 3 gets better optimized as it progressed through development.
It's totally reasonable for it to happen, the game is still in alpha, afterall.

Although, I can't say that Arma II felt like the most refined game ever, haha.

Dota is like a harder version of league. I say this because, for example, the towers do much less damage. If you wanted you could dive a tier 1 at level one and probably survive. Because of this you need to be much more careful. Also, a single action, death or teamfight can decide which team wins - it takes a lot less to tip the balance of the game. I could tell you all the differences but it'd take a long time.. Oh and to me it seems like a much better made game, but that's just my opinion.

DOTA2 takes too much consistency and commitment to be any fun. And so may of the players are total elitist arseholes, but nowhere near as bad as the players on HoN. League you can just pick up and play and have fun, I feel like DOTA takes itself too seriously. DOTA is however more perfected then LoL in terms of balance and mechanics.

I've played just about every MMO out there, with the exception of WoW (I just can't...).

To me, there aren't any "good" MMO's out right now, and that sucks.

The one I've played for the longest time (on/off) was Ragnarok Online. So much nostalgia.

I've been told by friends to play LoL, but I just can't get into it. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

Sim City (2013)
Starcraft 2
Dota 2
Xcom: Enemy Unknown
LA Noire
Far Cry 3
Borderlands 2
Mark of the Ninja

all games are played on PC. many games played with 360 controller connected to my PC. depends on the game of course. out of these games Dota 2 is played the most.

I am 29 years young for reference.

I do agree that a lot of dota players are extremely elitist.. extremely, EXTREMELY elitist. I think it, like a lot of things, is entirely a matter of opinion. Some people are gonna prefer league, some are gonna prefer dota. Both games have their + and - points and it's your choice which you like the most. However, I don't think dota is too serious.. I think you just need to concentrate more. I think it's a more competitive game when it comes to actual competitive events, but when it comes to public play almost everyone just wants to have fun. Unlike league you really do have to pay attention in order to not get ganked etc which probably puts some people off..

League you can just pick up and play and have fun, I feel like DOTA takes itself too seriously. DOTA is however more perfected then LoL in terms of balance and mechanics.

That's because DOTA is harder than LoL. Not by a lot but you actually have to get kills to get golds and build up your character etc. In LoL you just stand near the guy getting killed for gold, and you can pick your perks before the game starts.

That being said, I stopped playing DOTA after about a month. I hit level 10 and got on a 12 loss cold streak. The balance BADLY needs to be tweaked. Valve is ****ting out a new hero every 2 weeks and the real issues seem to be getting somewhat ignored (there are patches but they're always really mild, like a .02 second decrease of a skill that lasts 12 seconds or some crap.)

I've seen (and been) both sides of the coin here. when I was brand new to the game I didn't really get that you should play some bot matches and get a feel for the game so I jumped right in to PVP online as nyx and got totally whomped. Like 2 or 3 guys were yelling at me, and I was like "sorry it's my first game. One other guy calmly explained some pointers in about my 3rd game and it helped a lot.

Played a game near the end where I said "I've been on a losing streak, hopefully we can turn it around" and one guy on my team was like "lol doubt it, i'm ****in' stoned."

about 3/4 through the round we were playing and another guy said "Oh, I thought we were trolling, I haven't even bought any items yet"

Spent the last quarter of the match buying couriers and running them around the fountain. Good times.


I think a big reason why everybody is so serious about winning on DOTA is that not only does it log those stats, it jams them right in your face at every chance it gets. Showing you replays and W/L ratio and how good you are compared to other people with the same heroes. . . makes it very hard to be casual.

ok i have put about 200 hours into dota 2.  people are nice if you are nice. if you are a jerk people will freak the **** out and be total d bags.  in dota communication is key. teams must work together to win. so if people are mad at each other they dont talk, then they lose, then they get really mad because you spend 30 minutes losing. they get nasty. LoL and HoN are like this as well. it is the nature of all MOBA games. however, many people have told me that comebacks in matches are much more common in DOTA 2 than LoL and HoN. this is key.

i just try to not die and kill people when they act stupid, and holy **** is dota fun when you get a good game going. when teams are about even and large team battles get going it is so much fun. plus, the game is run by valve and they run that **** flawlessly. they have cool promotions, add heroes all the time, and unlike LOL everyone gets to play all the heroes for free(I dont know **** about HoN, but who plays that anyway amirite?) if everyone is on the same playing field the game is balanced differently. dota is balanced very well in my opinion. it is actually astonishing how well the game is balanced when you think about how many heroes there are. 5v5.

also @Internetlad i never played against bots, and i still havent. i think everyone should just jump into dota and starcraft like games. multiplayer is the most fun but you cant learn to beat a human beating a computer (at least not in starcraft). the first time i played dota 2 i got completely owned. i competed in a few matches, got yelled at and lost a lot. i died all the time. after that i didnt play again for a few months. i started playing again and it caught that time. i knew what to expect i guess. i found my groove with my first hero (windrunner), started dominating, and kept learning. it is a really fun game and MOBAs are like no other multiplayer game that i can think of. i am just saying give it another try. it might stick this time.

I still have quite a few friends who play it. I feel as though I have skill with Visage, Sand King (The hardest part is not getting killed when you ultimate) and Clockwerk, as well as a handful of others.

I'll probably reinstall some day. A lot of my friends still play it.

But not today.

DayZ got boring for me. Run all the way over here, find a gun, run all the way over there, hide in a bush for 20 minutes, run all the way back because you see a guy with a better gun than you.

It's a lot of fun if you can co-ordinate a group of ~4+ guys to get on and watch each other's backs, but if you're lone wolfing it gets old quick.

Dayz's fun heavily depends on the server population. Having a server with 1-3 clans makes it far more interesting as they are mostly bandits in which I will make it my job to track them and eliminate them. Extremely fun and nerve-wrecking when fighting with a group 3-5 players especially when they are well-gear.

DayZ is a tricky pony. I like to call it the best worst game I've ever played. The conceptual execution, UI, controls, basically all the core game play and mechanics  all are just horribly bad. What really makes it great though is the story(if you can call it as such) that each individual incurs, which is incredible. The situations of desperation players create or find themselves I've not seen the like in any other game really. EVE online perhaps. You can't really play DZ well, just learn from past mistakes. The game wouldn't be the same if it were well polished I think, it's like having a permanant handicap which is what makes it worth playing. If everything ran smoothly it would just be another zombie killing survival game.

Ironically the owner of a minecraft server is the one pulling me back in, he seems big into it, so i'll probably start out with decent gear and a leg-up. Playing with a team on TS3 is more fun anyways.

My personal rule was to never trust anyone in DayZ that I didn't actually know  in real life. I wouldn't necessarily kill on sight, but I wouldn't hesitate at the smallest sign if aggression. I played with a group of 4 guys I was in the Marine Corps with. We all served in Iraq a couple times together and we did amazingly well. It was fun for us to apply real world tactics against a much larger uncoordinated group of players.

i still play dayz, ive found that the private hive servers are relatively hacker free.
right now im playing taviana and its alot of fun
its really the most original concept in gaming in quite a while and im quite eager for the standalone
also arma 3 alpha is showing alot of promise
i guess im just getting a bit bored with the formulaic nature of most modern fps COD and Bf3
i still love mindless twitch gaming but tend to lose interest in 10-20 min and i find the endless grind for unlocks tedious

id rather run for hours and get one kill that matters than 25 kills that were easy and mindless

Never ever am I going back to MMO's they just take too many years out of your life and restricting yourself to 1 game is silly. :/

I started playing Everquest on the Rallos Zek PVP server in 1999.

I got a marketing email from Sony in early 2011 about a new expansion, which is weird because I hadnít heard really anything about EQ since I had stopped playing in 02 (no marketing emails, etc).

I downloaded the game, called customer support, and was able to re-activate my account after it being inactive for eight years. My main toon was there with all his gear, even survived a server merge when they combined all three PVP servers into one.

I leveled him solo to current content then transferred to a blue server (PVP is all about burn dps now and isnít any fun, unless of course you are a high AA burn DPS class)

I've been playing steady since then, raid 3x a week on Povar on end game content. I hang out with a small group of folks that I've gotten to know very well over the last two years and work through whatever content/achievements on non raid nights/days. Even bought a second account to box and nearly capped that toon.

Itís a huge time sink on relatively dated graphics but the game is really enjoyable with an insanely dedicated fanbase and always a huge challenge. New expansion every year now, up to 19, at one point it was one every 6 months.

After I re-started playing that I stopped messing with really any other game. I never got into any other MMO, WoW, etc.

I hang out with a small group of folks that I've gotten to know very well over the last two years and work through whatever content/achievements on non raid nights/days. Even bought a second account to box and nearly capped that toon.

Itís a huge time sink on relatively dated graphics but the game is really enjoyable with an insanely dedicated fanbase and always a huge challenge. New expansion every year now, up to 19, at one point it was one every 6 months.

After I re-started playing that I stopped messing with really any other game. I never got into any other MMO, WoW, etc.


That's similar to my experience with Aardwolf.  I stopped playing it for like 15 years, found it again, and somehow guessed my name and password correctly, and there my character was, in the spot I left it with everything intact.  I just didn't have a clue what I was doing, what I had, or how to play the game anymore. :P

eradicatedZombie just hooked it up with Dota 2! I'll leave my comparison to LoL here once I've played about 10 matches.

gooo heart of the swarm its soo cool.

I know right! I just beat the campaign... Multiplayer is a complete nightmare because I'm such a horrible n00b.... I get trampled before I have half a clue as to what's even going on.... There's SO MUCH to learn in SC2 it's kind of a ridiculous learning curve, especially for someone like me who's barely scratching the surface of an already WELL-known RTS.

That's what I liked about Guild Wars, it only went to level 20 and getting max armour with decent runes was no problem at all, and if you wanted to PvP you could make a PvP char that was instantly 20 where you could create the gear you wanted. Though you'd have to unlock a lot of it either through just regular PvE or through PvP points, but even that was fairly easy. Play through the PvE stuff with one char and you should have pretty much everything you need for PvP.

Heck, if you're dedicated you could reach 20 in a day with Factions and Eye of the North fairly easily.

Not dedicated enough, obviously. You have to be a masochist to play MMOs, more so with Korean MMOs though.

I wouldn't say Guild Wars or GW2 is a true MMO in the sense that there isn't really a real sense of progression with those games. But that's my opinion.

I'm interested as well, because I really can't see why there'd be any greater sense of progression in something like WoW, I just found that to have a needlessly tedious leveling experience just to keep you subscribed longer.
I'll admit that since it's so easy to hit max level and armour in GW that it's a bit more important to set personal goals, but even then the game gives you a hand by giving you a bunch of titles to work on if you're into that.

In GW2 I'll admit that there is a certain lack of progression and not a lot of realistic goals. All the goals you'd like to set are too far away, if you want armour then you'll want either T3, which is ridiculously expensive, or dungeon armour, which is a massive grind. If you're into cool weapons then they're all ridiculously hard to get. Sure, they might be somewhat realistic if you're the sort of person who can get really into GW2, but personally I feel that there's not a lot along the way. For instance, in GW pretty much anyone can get a set of prestige armour, it takes a bit of dedication, but if you just play the game you'll eventually have enough, or close to enough, for a 50k armour at least. In GW2 there is no "playing the game", you get through your personal story and then that's it, after that the game has no clear goal for you, it's just "go out there and grind".
I like the way hearts and vistas and stuff works, but it's only fun on the first character, it feels like the game punishes you for making more characters.
In GW you've gotta do missions to progress, sure, but once you've completed the campaign once then you sorta know what to do and how to do it, so subsequent playthroughs of the campaigns are less tedious because you know which quests you can skip and you know how the missions work to get through them more efficiently. In Prophecies you can even run past the majority of the missions.
In GW2 everything is equally grindy and boring every time.

... Aaand I'll stop there, I could probably write an essay about what I like about GW alone, and then another one on why I don't like GW2 all that much, and then yet another one on why GW is better than GW2, but I'll stop my rant here.

On the "What i've been playing" front, checked out GodMode and it looks good, coming out in a couple weeks, but been investing a bit of time into Dawn of Fantasy, a persistent world MMORTS that was released about a week ago. 20 bucks from their site with a couple perks.

And incidentally I'd never have believed that was a real game unless it was actually steam that had notified me that it was available for purchase.

The irony i'm seeing with blood dragon is that it seems that 15 bucks is a pretty low price for a standalone title. I think what happened is that they slashed the price from a potential 30 down to 15 due to the leak ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22095115 ) and are going to see overwhelmingly positive reaction to charging a fair price for DLC on day 1 release.

Neverwinter beta.

what do you think of it?

I didn't have enough time to hit the max level cap in this closed beta, but it was pretty fun for how far I did get. It was really easy to get into and the combat is more engaging than some MMOs I've played/tried. The combat feels like a mix of Aion and Tera. It's really easy to figure out where to go for your quests and they don't just make you run around town to do tons of different errands. It has the feel of an epic story too which is kind of nice. I also tried out the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta this weekend and I definitely prefer Neverwinter over it. FF XIV just didn't feel as intuitive for questing and getting into the game in comparison and it felt like way too much running around town to do quests, at least early on. Combat in FF XIV felt a lot slower also and just didn't feel as fun. FF XIV just felt a bit boring to play and questing felt like more of a chore than anything. I'll definitely be playing the Neverwinter open beta when that comes around and probably will buy into retail.

it's fantastic but the only thing about it is that if you're using an emulator instead of a flash cart, you wont really be able to do combos during battle. so in other words the combat will be the same as it is in earthbound. this isnt a problem as you dont need the combos to play the game, it just makes you need to grind more.

Been playing Papers Please and sc2, papers please is pretty great, though I wish I could play it wij keyboard instead of just the mouse

Same thing with Cart Life. I don't know why indie games seem to have poor KV/M controls. It's not like this is cross platform with a controller in mind.

Maybe it's just easier to code for mostly mouse controls?

yeah I'm not sure... but those games kinda scream keyboard controls... but Papers Please just got put through Green Light, so maybe they'll update it with more stuff like kb controls... I just kinda hate playing games with one hand lol

Ahh cool, thanks for the info.  I'm playing on a supercard dstwo so i'm guessing the combos will work!

Oh wow that's crazy, I just started playing M3 as well. I really am not too fond of it so far, it's so straight forward with little exploration and so far I have only been solo or in a party of two. Plus there's TONS of text, I mean it is an rpg, but damn. Like 3 paragraphs everytime I talk to anyone. Really hoping it picks up gameplay wise and gets zanier like Earthbound was 'cause I am starting to lose interest in [MR.RAPE] and his favorite food [WARM JIZZ].

The story and action has picked up, but this game has one of the worst battle systems imaginable. Some of the beats are absolutely impossible to get, this is a really really poorly designed system I think I'll just grind XP rather then relying on combos. You should never force your user to go out of their way to avoid certain enemies, like the ones that insta kill you if you cannot beat combo correctly the first time. That's just bad design. I couldn't imagine trying to play this on a GBA without save states at the ready each time you encounter an unavoidable enemy that you can't but need to combo to win.

The last dungeon that they added when I was playing was Fractals and they capped it to 50, which is pointless to call it an infinite dungeon..

Well, for Diablo, a lot of people had a really high expectations from Blizzard. But GW2, I understand its not a huge company like Blizzard but to not release actual content for months is just ridiculous for a MMO, especially when the content that exist is really small in terms of quantity>

This never really bothered me, because I came from the original GW which didn't get like new dungeons and major stuff added regularly, it was 3 campaigns and one expansion over the course of about 7 years, and while they did add quite a bit of new content outside of that, it wasn't on the scale people probably expect from WoW, so I don't really have a problem with the lack of new content. Although I could probably write an essay about all the other problems I have with GW2, being a big fan of the original.

D3 also has it's fair share of problems, and coming from D2 my expectations were pretty high for D3 as well, so it was a huge letdown when it was finally released. Still, it's a fun game and I don't regret buying the CE at all.

Well, I have never played GW but I had friends that played GW and they were really disappointed with GW2. On top of that, they said that the pvp system was far more interesting in GW than in GW2. I have been on JQ for a long time and when they locked the transfers delay to once per months, my server got super over populated which resulted on a dominance in the WvW, it got really boring.

thanks to the recent steam sale, i'm wading through the star wars games. KOTOR (1) is kind of buggy on windows 7, but considering it was made for 98 and 2000, its pretty incredible it runs at all. Battlefield 2 isn't nearly as bad a port as some people would have you believe, and Jedi Academy, although tedious, is pretty close to what I remember it being.

Your best bet is determination, patience, and Ebay. I snagged a copy of Chrono Trigger with the original box manual and inserts for $39.99 which is a total steal. Most of my other SNES games I bought from lots. You drop maybe $50-60 for a lot of a dozen or so games and there's always a couple gems in there, but now I have 4 copies of Super Mario World :p

Also, don't even mind Earthbound. It's a great game but gaming hipsters have put it on this pedestal like it's the best thing ever and thus warped the going price of a common game to ridiculous standards. If you wanna play it, do it on an emulator and don't let those greedy bastards perpetuate that inflated price.

Haha I just went to that site and threw all the stuff in my cart to laugh at the price. I'm probably not gonna buy much from there, although their prices fluctuate a lot, so occasionally I've been able to snag a good deal. There is a local game store here that has a good selection of old games and they sell them really cheap compared to online stores. I just go there once every couple of weeks and look. I actually picked up Shaq-Fu the other day :p not a very good game, but at the same time, so very awesome. Do you find the lots on Ebay as well? I rarely use Ebay, so I don't really know.

every decent snes game is pretty expensive. you might as well just emulate and get a usb snes controller.

I love game cartridges though, don't really know why, there's just something awesome about them. And I'm pretty fond of Nintendo's systems, so I don't mind paying a little more to have the actual thing, even though emulation is so much more convenient. I actually might try finding another SNES for cheap and put a raspberry pi in it to use as an emulator. I saw a project where someone built an adapter to use the original controllers instead of USB ones with their rpi, so it might make for a pretty fun summer project.
Title: Re: What computer games do you play?
Post by: Internetlad on Wed, 08 May 2013, 10:46:22
I'd recommend, assuming you already own a controller, just getting the controller to usb adapter and using a program to map the keys. Much more efficient. In my experience the 3rd party controllers aren't worth the ticket price (I picked one up, and the responsiveness is nothing compared to a real SNES controller. You could splurge and get a high quality gamepad that isn't a Nintendo knockoff, or go all out and make your own with proper switches, but in the end spending 30 bucks on a Logitech 6 button pad is probably the best option.

Been re-living one of my old favorite games, Deuce Ex: Invisible War (still crashes and kind of buggy, but still one of my favorite immersive  story lines ever, and awesome game play... Just have to quick save and quick load A Lot.)

Just occupying myself with that and LoL while I wait for Elder Scrolls Online, Starbound, and Star Citizen to be developed and released.

Edit;
If anybody wonders, I do have the new Deuce Ex (revolution?) but can't run it at a good frame rate on my computer and just am bored with the action-overload that is Revolution.

I'm quite fond of Mirror's Edge. It's like the best "demo" game ever. I like running, jumping around, listening to the relaxing music.  :p

Hope they make a more refined, complete sequel.

And one of the worst PC control schemes next to Neverwinter Nights 2. The game has an incredible art direction though.

Starcraft 2 is my main game basically since it came out.
I will also regularly play Civ 5 and Battlefield 3.

I splash in some other random games and TF2 if enough of my friends get on.

:-)

I'm a huge Starcraft guy. Do you play on the NA servers?
Yessir and the other ones if I have ladder anxiety, am drunk, or bored.

Add me :-) I'm pretty sure its Thurston.775 but will verify when home. (No zero in bnet name compared to gh name)

I play on NA as well. What league are you in? I'm currently plat in 1v1. Didn't play and team games in HotS yet.

I'm playing the new Metro, it's a pretty sweet game.

Still working my way through the original. One of the games that fall into the strange category of "I like it, but only for an hour at a time"

I could play STALKER all day long and not get bored, but Metro, despite being superior in many ways, just can't hold on to my attention. I think it's because I don't really enjoy playing it, as it's really a rather difficult game. The stealth sections especially, since if you get spotted once, it doesn't make you start over, but you have to shoot your way out despite overwhelming odds (it's usually like 10 on 1 and you're supposed to take them out one at a time), Plus it gives me a horrible sense of claustrophobia, even when you're outside the levels are completely linear, whereas with STALKER you just sort of did it however you wanted.

Maybe the problem is I expect it to BE  STALKER but it's not. Still a good game and well put together.

Been playing a LOT of KSP lately, just now working on docking and building a space station (Kerbal International Space Station, K.I.S.S.) but it can be a real pain as I don't understand the maneuver system, so I do it all by hand. I think I need to have another run through the tutorials (When I started playing, maneuvers weren't even in the game)

I think when I get home tonight, I'm gonna design and launch another space station and a few fighters. The video "Battle of Vulture's Drift" is really cool. I think the best part of KSP is seeing the work-arounds people come up with because you don't necessarily have the objects you want, so if you want a missile you have to figure out how to make one, etc.

It was the opposite for me. I love S.T.A.L.K.E.R. but I get tired of it pretty quickly, whereas I just finished Last Light yesterday (played through it in a little under a week).

The gameplay was really awesome, much better than 2033, and the atmosphere was just as good as 2033's. I didn't really like the story though, the romance with Anna felt really odd and I felt a lot more disconnected from everything than I did with 2033.

On an unrelated note, I made a Geekhack BF3 platoon if anyone wants to get together and play that sometime.

The second level? Yeah, that was great. I think I ended up disguising myself as his drug dealer and poisoning his coffee or something.  I prefer to try and get the silent assassin rating most of the time.  I think once I beat the game on normal i'll go and try it on professional or even purist.  I can imagine those two really test how good you are, haha.

I was incredibly disappointed with how much easy mode they put into the game compared to Blood Money. The automatic headshot mode, the "I can see where people are walking" vision, too much HP on 47, he can eat like a whole clip and still have health to spare. I only played the first level thus far and I'll probably give it another go, but it seemed like they really went too far making it "accessible" (aka 12 year old CoD Xbox gamers who don't know **** about stealth games and think that shooting everything in the head with a sniper rifle is the way to go.)

Some of it is negligible, I know. You're never forced to use the "hitman autoshoot" mode or the "instinct vision" (whatever they're called), but they did the same thing with Ace Combat:AH, dumbed it down so the majority of idiots don't have to learn how to do it right. It's the principle of the thing.

Metro and Stalker are two completely different games based in very similar worlds. The stealth sections of the first Metro irked me. While those sections weren't a game killer they were annoying enough to make me put down the game and call it a day. In a way I enjoy the claustrophobic feel of the game. There's this constant feeling of urgency that crawls up my neck as I stroll through the underground. I just love that atmosphere and the detail.

I have really enjoyed the STALKER games but because they're so large sometimes I get overwhelmed by the size and feel this weird sense of being hopelessly lost. In Metro its just keep going forward. Two different games, very similar worlds.

I've been wanting to play KSP, it looks absolutely fantastic and a very rewarding game. It does look like it has quite a learning curve. So much to do, so many ways to do it.

KSP reminds of Tekkit mod for Minecraft.

I can't disagree with anything you've said, playing through 3/4 of the game it's definately felt that way.  Even though the levels are very non-linear, it does feel extremely dumb'd down a lot of the time.  If you're playing on normal difficulty, the AI of the people you need to avoid is downright pathetic at times.  I thought the whole point and shoot thing was a little unnecessary too, I remember first using something like that when I played Splinter Cell: Conviction.  Even though I haven't used it once so far in the campaign I do feel it kind of takes away from the whole "hitman" narrative.  I just like how they give you so many options of completing your contracts and getting through your objectives.

KSP reminds of Tekkit mod for Minecraft.

There is a big learning curve, but personally, myself with absolutely no prior training in anything close to aerospace engineering being able to pick up the game and have fun, that's saying something. There are 4 tutorials covering the basics of launching, finding your orbit, manouevering, going on an EVA and landing, all of which I HIGHLY reccomend if you want to play the game a little more "properly"

It is very much a sandbox game. You set goals for yourself, you learn at your own pace. at my skill level, having played for several months off and on, I can more often than not make a mun landing and back with the ships I design, but the game comes with stock ships too so you can get some ideas or flight experience from that. For me the most fun is building and flying your own ships. If you want to make a ship with 100 solid rocket boosters, do it. It won't fly very well but you can do it.

Incredibly, incredibly fun game. I would reccomend buying it from the KSP store so Squad gets a few extra bucks (I think steam takes a 20 or 25% cut of the sale price, a dev from another game told me once.) If you want to see videos of somebody who is basically, in my opinion, the defacto master of KSP, check out Scott Manley's channel on YouTube. Some other, more fun channels you should check out are KSP Insane Rocket Division and the test pilot series from HOCgaming.

If you get into it, this is the sort of game that can eat hours and hours of your life and prove an incredible bang for your buck.



Back on the topic of Hitman, I DO like the built in "contracts" feature. Very smart. Adds replayability without actually needing any extra work involved, and challenges you to solve the missions in a way that you, or possibly even the devs, hadn't specifically thought of.

Me and a friend picked up BF3 recently, it's a lot better than I thought it would be. It does bring back memories of BF2.

Though I'll say this; there are so many bull**** deaths, and stacked teams seem to be the norm. We've had very few games so far where it's actually a proper fight rather than a steamroll one way or the other.

Pretty much the main reason I stopped playing it.  There are a ton of deaths that I know are just impossible.  I've been playing from almost the beginning, so I know that when I get one shot killed by someone who should be suppressed, something funky is going on.  That and the ridiculous lag spikes that seem to be common these days.

One of the big problems is that everyone is a sniper and most of them suck at it.  Whenever I decide I want to snipe, I run L96 with a holo with 1911 or something similar as my sidearm and and playing on the front line.  I want BF4 to have a server setting that enables an America's Army type mode where you have a limited number of each class.  That way, you only have 10-20% of your team sniping and the rest spread evenly between assault, support, and engineers.

Any GH'ers play Awesomenauts? Pretty decent MOBA game that doesn't require an hour of your time per match. Good learning curve as well, although I still suck with most of the 'nauts :(

I've been playing Awesomenauts a bit. Best with Froggy G because his splash dash is OP. Gnaw becuase his spit-up is OP, and coco because even though she sucks, her thunderball is OP.

Basically all the nauts are OP. Their auto attacks are too weak and they all have one game-breakingly good move, and one pretty useless move. my two cents.

Other than that, fun time waster.

I know I'll get hate for this, but I came from console and used to play strictly FPS games (mainly the CoD series), so I still have love for my FPS  games like including CoD (I mainly play MW2 and MW), but I have definitely expanded my gaming horizon :P Aside from CoD I'll play TF2 from time to time, Warframe, L4D, Killingfloor, CSS, Darksiders, SR3, Garry's Mod, and Metro 2033. Even though I rarely have time for games anymore, I'll play when I have some time to slack :P

Why would you get hate for already making a good choice?

Honestly I don't care if somebody plays console. I can see why you would want to play console (basically it's easy mode of gaming)

It's when somebody starts swearing up and down that "Controller is easier to use for <fps, rts, etc>" I agree that fighting and driving games are better with a controller, but I can always hook up whatever peripherals I want to a PC. If I want to play WCS with realistic, 400 dollar A-10 throttle and flightstick, I can do that.
Bonus points when they say that the PS3/360 have superior graphics and gameplay. Yeah 720p@30fps is pretty hardcore, man.

What this guy says, there's no shame in having risen from the humble beginnings of a console gamer to being part of the PC Master Race  :p

I haven't been big into multiplayer lately, it just doesn't really interest me to go online and play against people anymore. I've played pretty much all of the recently released big name titles like the new Tomb Raider, Bioshock: Infinite, and such.

Metro Last Light will forever serve as a reminder of why I built a beast gaming PC, because that game was just so visually stunning, zomg... lol

The one issue I take with Last Light is how they greedily made the hardest difficulty setting DLC. That's just spitting in the face of hardcore gamers who would buy the game on day one and actually want to play it through on that setting. Honestly, a blatant and consumer unfriendly money-grab that doesn't even make sense as really only the smallest portion of dedicated players would play it on max difficulty anyway. You ought to reward these players, not try to deter them from purchasing your game.

Yeah, I agree with you. It wasn't a deal-breaker to me however, because I just wanted to experience the game, and it was definitely challenging one whatever difficulty I played it on.

lol, I didn't understand some of the puzzles, so instead of using a scalpel, I just used a sledgehammer and just built my own bridge/ladder to get where I needed to go.

I'm almost sure I didn't do the disappearing bridge right, I just saved up a bunch of cubes from the auto-cube-spawner, and built a big ladder instead of actually going over the bridge, lol.

Speaking of Indie games, you should all try "Receiver" that's available on Steam. Has a really unique concept of gunplay where you're actually responsible for loading bullets into the magazine > putting magazine into gun > cocking the slide. I think all shooters should be like this!

lol it's so hard to reload under pressure. the keys could be mapped a little bit more intuitively (of course i'd know how to let go of the magazine i'm holding in real life and take a new one out of my pocket.)  but when i'm getting chased by a drone I can't ever seem to reload.

Hard as hell, i'm convinced i'll never beat it (never made it past 3-4 tapes without running out of ammo or being shot and there are 11 tapes) and it doesn't help that the map is HUGE and large portions of it look exactly the same, or seem to repeat (now that I think of it, is the map randomly generated?)

The gun mechanics alone are worth the ticket price, but I wish the overall game was better than "run around, find cassettes"

and of course, nothing better than slowly pulling back the slide on your 1911, releasing it, and rounding the corner to pop that turret.

What really made it for me was the fact you can un-cock a pistol (or at least, a revolver) by holding the hammer button, holding the trigger button, and releasing the hammer button. That blew my mind a little that they thought to include that.

This^ lol

You pretty much touched on everything. I find it really annoying sometimes that the spots to one shot the turrets/drones can be really vague sometimes. Also, for quite awhile the game would start me with the M1911 with the safety on and I had no idea why I couldn't do anything with it..... fail lol.

I don't find the key-mapping that bad. It probably took me a solid week to commit the keys to muscle memory and then I was reloading/loading like a pro.

Finally, I hate the revolver.... like I usually commit suicide when I spawn. I really wish they would allow you to select a weapon to start with.

I also wait for my beta invite for DOTA 2. First DOTA went pass me all along, I didn't know it even existed until I started to play LoL :D

And sometimes I play Terraria and I wait paifully for Starbound... I used to play Minecraft, but it became tedious.

To an extent. If you didn't do "everything" ie all the side missions and whatnot there are those. Obviously the story arc is the same but you can make minor choices (kill ashley or kalib. .  whatever his name was) that change dialogue/cutscenes.

I find the most fun comes from playing a completely different class (everybody just plays soldier)

Actually i always played as female shepard and used vanguard as my class. So maybe next time as male, maybe. Well, i will wait on it till it drops in price.
Anyway, what dlc should i get. I mean are they all good or essential in a way? Oh and very important is the original ending worth seeing or should i install the patch (not sure if its installed automatically already).

I would suggest not worrying about it and playing it with the patch. Nothing they did fundamentally changed the ending, it was just a couple of scenes and such from what I remember. None of the DLC is really needed, although from what I've read definitely get the last DLC they released for ME3, I hear it's just really fun.

I don't know about any of the DLCs, I only played the first two base games. I avoid Origin like the plague.

Maybe not the "right" place to ask, but while it's on my mind, I recently found out that "gamer" headphones are basically a fleece, and got a pair of "Studio" headphones. (light years beyond my Turtle Beach X17s) Does anybody know a low-cost USB connected volume knob that I could put on my desk to control. . . the volume?

All I want is a volume control knob, I don't need a whole amp/mixer setup. Like 10 dollars is about what i'm looking to spend. I expect if I can't find a pre-made I could try to figure out how to make one, as I've been looking for a project for the ~150 dollars worth of soldering equipment I bought and thus far haven't used :(

I really can't imagine that there isn't a low cost device that consists of essentially enough programming to tell the computer what it is and if it wants the volume to go up or down, and a rotary dial to do so.

This one seems to be pretty nice, probably gonna get it (tho more for video work)
But yeah, a simple volume knob would be nice (perhaps mute/un-mute on press).
IIRC pre Win7 we had hotkeys (Winkey+Something) for volume control,
but it seems it's gone now (?), makes things somewhat harder >.>

I can't get back into CS. At one point in my nerdlife about 7 years ago I was pretty darn good. Maybe not comp good but pubstomp good at least.

Nowadays i'm getting insulted by 14 year old micspammers who think they're hot **** because they shoot you with an awp, and bind retarded sayings to hotkeys so they can spam them as fast as humanly possible over and over when they get a bodyshot kill on you. Kind of destroys the experience.

Bonus points for the one guy who I told "Well I just play for fun" and he responded "LOL IF YOU LIKE DYING THAT'S FINE." I probably did the same retarded stuff when I was younger, but since I no longer have 6 hours a day to commit to playing a single video game, nor the ambition to do so now that I actually have a family who constantly want me to do stuff, I guess i'll just take it.


On the other hand I don't throw my gaming equipment nearly as much anymore, so it might be a good tradeoff.

Team fortress 2 mostly and a bit of Counter Strike  :p

TF2 died for me with the mann co update. Played a bit of that robot co-op mode, that was neat. . . but a lot of the new weapons are just retard teir. Very few are true sidegrades, and i'm sure that if I actually sat down and played today it would be almost a totally different game, and I wouldn't know what the hell was going on.

I'd like to redownload it and try to find a server that blocks the unlocks (or at least the majority of them. Some offer "different but balanced" gameplay, like the KGB, Kritzkreig or scottish resistance. Some are straight upgrades, aka hand holders like the black box, some are just conceptually retarded like the spycicle and the candy cane. . .then there are some "what were they THINKING" items that are either continually OP, or are stuck in some sort of buff/nerf limbo like the FaN/sandman where the core design of the item is so broken that it's simply unfixable in a team based multiplayer game.

Haven't found any game that i like to play online. Its nice to be able to, but most of the time they are flooded with jerks.
And, yes, i am horrible online. Thats why i gave up on CS, even though i bought the latest one but my reflexes truly suck now. I am more into rpgs or adventures. I just got me Deadly Premonition Directors Cut. Borderland 2 is on my list too. Played the first one and it was very addictive.

I play CSGO, dota 2 (current favorite), Gw2, TF2 (played a few seasons of comp, ESEA open high), and a few single player games.

I have a LoL account with over 800 games, but I'm better at dota, so I quit LoL. Best idea I've had in a while. I was so bad.

I'm the absolute worst cs player, I really never got into it, I mostly like to watch it.

Gw2 was my favorite until I left for Japan (had zap drop on me the day before I left LOL). I now prefer dota 2 because it's rather to watch. I can't play games here because I didn't bring a PC.

My TF2 career was short lived, as I really hated the game. I made a solid medic though. I still play it for ****s n giggles every now and then. Mostly when I get bored of farming gold in gw2.

EDIT: Accidentally a word.

Finished Mass Effect 3. Took me 38 hours and i think i was level 40.
Sadly, the ps3 version does have same lag issues and i hate if game designers don't let me skip scenes. Especially if you at the end and you want to try every choice. arrg...
Overall fun game, but as far as faces goes, it looked mostly like puppets which is a negative.
Did everyone enjoy the end? I think i liked red although blue has its charm too.

Multiple characters to play with and level up.  I have been playing for months and will continue indefinitely.  I only have one character maxed out, and a second about 1/2 way there.  Still 4 more characters to play with.  Pick it up, one of the great ones in my eyes.

I'm playing Torchlight at the moment. I followed Torchlight 2 very closely as it looked so cool, but never bought it in the end. I got this last week for free and it is so much fun. I hope the second game appears in a sale somewhere soon.

I'm also interested in Arma 3, but it looks fun and scary in equal measure.

Also also, stuff on PS3 and Vita.

I don't mean scary as in Excorsist. I mean scary in that there are people who take the game very very seriously and being a newbie it is intimidating.

Not sure whether I already posted in this thread.

Nowadays, all I play is online multiplayer games. Specifically, I play little else outside of Dota2 and Battlefield3.

Though I am still waiting for that next generation arena shooter. In the mean time, BF3 is the most fun FPS for me to play with a bunch of people. Counter Strike is cool, but after so many years, I just feel like I should be moving on. At some point you realize that you have gotten everything out of a game, and in the future you will never again have as much fun (or in my case, play at a higher level) as you used to.

she played uncharted 2/3

now she's on assassin's creed, ezio's triology (2,brotherhood,relevations)

i don't think i'll let her play 3, i thought it was a crap game, i don't want to subject her to the same. I'm thinking either dark souls(never had the time to finish it was on last mob, and time just went by) or skyrim, either would take her months.

after I got fed up with Valve's BS after the Mann Co update in october (2011?) I quit TF2 and gave away all my in-game posessions to my friends. In hindsight it was probably about 100+ dollars worth of merchandise (Genuine hats and weapon collection, I played a LOT.) Wish I would have known the marketplace was coming.

The only stuff I have now is a few hats that I got back/couldn't bear to part with worth less than 15 bucks. Still not worth it for the memories of the good times before F2P, the elimination of micspam, retarded weapon unlocks (cough, huntsman, cough) and back when I was good at FPS.

only time COD was cool was with the very first one vCOD, I use to close the server with 200 kills in 30-35 min DM offcourse at Brecourt with the KAR98, and probably 20-30 deaths or so.... COD2 was already flopping and COD4 too, with COD4 is where I just gave up on CAL-o and whatever was the other competitive division TW(something, I forgot).

They don't make them anymore like that but, there are indie games that are good when comes about FPS gaming, TripwireInteractive is one of them, RedOrchestra 2 and its add on Rising storm, try it out and you'll see, wordlike mechanics in it, if you run you start getting tired and you slow down, if ur tired and try to aim your gun sways.... pretty cool game, also pop smoke will cone out with Vietnam DL, and one another Dev team with WW1 DL, hoping for one more team to have the Hungarians in WW2 DL.

Just sold some TF2 Items and bought L4D2 on sale. I love the Steam Item Market so much.

after I got fed up with Valve's BS after the Mann Co update in october (2011?) I quit TF2 and gave away all my in-game posessions to my friends. In hindsight it was probably about 100+ dollars worth of merchandise (Genuine hats and weapon collection, I played a LOT.) Wish I would have known the marketplace was coming.

The only stuff I have now is a few hats that I got back/couldn't bear to part with worth less than 15 bucks. Still not worth it for the memories of the good times before F2P, the elimination of micspam, retarded weapon unlocks (cough, huntsman, cough) and back when I was good at FPS.

I may cash out what I can. IDK. I need to give it some thought first.

Also, SC:BW campaign. My APM is like 35. I play super safe, it takes me about an hour to establish a base, and then another hour to build some top-tier units and destroy every enemy building even when it's not needed, with such micro that I hardly ever lose more than a couple of units.

OOOOOOK. Gotta be a troll post, because SotC is one of the most atmospheric, incredible, awe inspiring, highly praised, and innovative games ever to grace any video gaming console ever.

Just gonna chalk that up to some kinda ironic anti-humor.

It's not, the game is compete garbage. The controls are horrible and you spend most of the time fighting them in order to get your rag doll character up some massive hairy troll.
The PS2 version is even worse because the frame-rate is garbage. It's a bad game with it's redeeming feature being how it looks, which isn't enough for a game.

Recently played through Digital: A Love Story and Analogue: A Hate Story, really enjoyed them. I've gotten two of the endings in Analogue, going to see if I can be bothered getting the rest before Hate Plus is out.

Also played through Gunpoint, I can see why it gets the amount of praise it does.

Started on Dust: An Elysian Tail tonight, great game so far at least.

I'm currently playing Borderlands 2, Final Fantasy XIV: ARR Beta (when it's up), occasionally some Path of Exile and Torchlight II. I'm also trying to work my way through The Walking Dead episodes when I'm bored. It's sort of like watching the TV series (which I love). Recently logged a few hours in Civ 5, but dropped it because that game is only really fun when you're playing against real people and my friends play other games like DOTA2 or LoL (hate MOBAs). I'm also just now starting in Dishonored (Assassin's creed meets Bioshock), but it hasn't really captured me.

I recently set up a minecraft server on my Synology NAS and my eldest boys (ages 9 and 5) log in to that to play together. Sometimes I join in with them to keep them interested and to let them know that I approve of their gaming. :)

New Vegas was such a fabulous game, and in my opinion much more enjoyable than Fallout 3! Everybody rightly thinks Caesar's Legion is a bunch of scoundrels and they really are, but what I found amazing was that if you actually side with them and talk to Caesar, he has some incredibly interesting things to say. That and the rest of the story were absolutely top notch though, and now Obsidian needs to do an Elder Scrolls spinoff!

I've been playing The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Pretty decent ARPG, though remembering the keyboard is really hard since 90% of the keyboard is mapped to something it seems LOL. It's way less grindy feeling than Torchlight. I'm totally glad I picked it up instead of Torchlight 2.

I will have to give Digital: A Love Story a go, looks really interesting. I still like to play 1980's text adventures from time to time so it seems it should hit the spot.

I'm not that far gone on it, but I played halfway through (the sea snake/dragon thing) and got fed up. Wait 5 minutes for a chance to jump on, climb for 12 minutes, fall off or get hit once. bull****. I never finished it, and I didn't consider it the god-teir game everybody else seems to. It was a unique concept and had some good puzzle gameplay, but other than that wasn't anything special.

You should definitely get it! We don't play every night but the game will definitely pay itself off, whether you're playing with friends or by yourself. The game is just that much fun :)

Oh gawd, I couldn't agree more with Dark Souls. Got the limited edition on day 1 for PS3 and played the **** out of the game (also played the **** out of Demons' Souls, which I also got the limited edition for). Honestly, I don't find either to be too difficult but it's hard enough to provide a good challenge that you need to be paying attention and be focused while playing it at all times. It's also getting fairly cheap (it was even less than $8 during the Summer Steam Sale!) so no excuses!
