both brilliant games had to get an xbox to play mass effect though.

Dead space 2 is a very good game just finished the dlc severed that came out not long ago, its worth a try

Just finished Gears Of War 2. Very average. Trudging slowly through a very grey world, facing enemies whose AI is just smart enough to be very dumb and using a cover system that masks the lack of challenge or strategy plus a weapon selection that although wide never actually forces to change your selection. Oh and some cheap demographic pleasing swearing and gore.

I feel the need for something a little more intelligent next - Dead Space, probably.

Loads at the moment. Currently on Killzone 3 and Skate 3 as well as F1, Fifa and NHL. Also got myself a copy of Assassins Creed Brotherhood the other day at long last. Big fan of the AC series but haven't had a chance to get the latest installment until now.

Post by: Iffy's Onion Bhaji on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, 18:56:35
Best FPS out currently is Killzone 3. Great game engine but it does take a while to get used to. Worth getting if you have a PS3 for sure. Also has a good multiplayer and is a very good and different alternative to COD.

I've been mostly playing lots of Dungeon Crawl and Dwarf Fortress, because I'm the biggest geek and can put up with games displayed in ascii. Dwarf Fortress is well worth the effort to learn how to play because it's like crack. I nickname all my dwarfs after Swindon Players, Gurney and Sol Davis had a child together.

Also a jrpg runout with a spot of Final Fantasy IX (the forgotten best playstaion FF) and Chrono Cross (criminal that the chrono series didn't get a Europe release :(, basically playing it for the soundtrack).

I've had game OCD a lot recently, I struggle to keep the concentration up. I've got half finished run throughs of all the Metroid Prime games (worth picking up the collection if you have a wii gathering up dust. Metroid Prime 1 is possibly the best game of the last decade.), Cave Story, FF5, Deus Ex, System Shock II and Thief 2 and probably a few others. Those last 3 are the three best games ever made so I normally have a run going on at least one of them at any one time.

Had a bit of fun with goldeneye online, but I'm much more a twitch FPS gamer. Fuck all this hiding in cover shit, give me reflex circle strafing and rocket jumps any day.

Haha Dwarf Fortress is hardcore, I came across it the other day but didn't know where to start.

Been playing a lot of Assassin's Creed, the latest one is mint. Also COD, FIFA, bit of Civilization on the PC and doing my best Danny Wilson impression on FM2011. I'm truly awful at that game.

Apparantly there using some of the best facial recognition software available. And you play as a ww2 suvivor turned detective so you will be solving murders ect

Noire is being developed by a new Australian team so not really the Rockstar North devs behind GTA. I think the only thing they've done before was work on The Getaway for Sony.

I've not played it online yet, although the beta seemed fine. But as Iffy said, there have been a few complaints. It's pretty broken from what I've heard, but I haven't seen it for myself.

The campaign is pretty fucking solid though.

I must admit that graphically Crysis 2 is no better than the first Crysis or Crysis warhead, I hoped they would have improved it a bit.

Still a good shooter though.

If you like the bioshock games then it's worth hunting down the System Shock games that they rip off badly. System Shock 2 is one of the greatest games ever made, it's stupidly wonderful on every level.

Which brings me to a point about games now that graphics have got silly good. Can we have some art direction please? Maybe a blockbuster game which doesn't look like a warzone with a brown filter on it.

I bought Ico the other day with money I couldn't really afford. It's an old early PS2 game, but it's better looking than most modern shooters. Not because of any resolution or any of that shit, but because it's got a brilliantly simplified style which ties in with the simple plot, and it doesn't TELL you it, it shows you. It's like somebody learnt something from books and films.

It actually goes out of it's way not to tell you. Which is wonderful. Yeah the AI is dodgy and you end up dragging what I can only guess is a retarded princess about, because letting her follow you is foolish. But they speak different languages and learn to trust eachother as they go through the game.

It's not as exciting as running over hookers but it's still brilliant. Video games now make more money than Hollywood and their budgets are starting to match. They don't all need to be a Michael Bay movie.

(sorry RJack, that wasn't really a reply to you at all)

If you haven't played the original deus ex and want some knowledge before the (probably really shit) blockbuster sequel appears then it's one of the greatest games of all time. Avoid the second one though.

The new Metal Gear isn't really going to be that great though surely? Not after they finished it all really with MGS4 which was a superb game by all accounts. When is GTA V due? Uncharted 3 should be the bollocks though.

Yeah but it's going back. It's probably going back to the time between MGS4 where Raiden appears and the last game with Raiden in it. Doesn't really interest me as much. But whatever floats ones boat I guess.

i see what you mean but the raiden you play as in this game and the raiden you see in MGS4 arnt the same ones theres some talk going around that they are clones.

Metal gear has always been known for the great story and thats why i play them, there are other games im more interested in like mass effect 3 and uncharted 3

Just wish you could still do local hotseat mode.

I am looking forward being able to play it properly

I didn't rate empires myself. I think it's because the gunpowder units take out so many of the tactics from the game.

Shogun 2 looks back to the basics of good 'ole spearmen and archers.

Fantastic!

yeah Empire was weak, poor stability and it was always crashing for me on vista, now i have windows 7 its runs much smoother. Napoloen was a big improvment on the ship battles and sound of gunfire

I heard that they'd worked out a way to hack in extra playstation points or whatever it is you use to buy stuff into accounts, and so they'd had to shut it down because they couldn't have people buying third party games with imaginary money because sony would have to reimburse the other developers.

Although I admit it's not something I've been keeping up on.

It's pretty embarrassing for Sony that something like this could happen whatever the hackers motives are.

I haven't been able to sign into the PlayStation Network for the past week or so as Virgin have changed my cable modem/router to a wireless homehub.
The wireless works OK and I get it on my laptop.
But on the PS3, it finds the network OK but says there's a DNS Server error.
I've googled it a fair bit and tried loads of fucking different DNS server codes but nothing works, can anyone help with this?


Title: Re: Games games games

Yes I can, but the router is connected in the spare room upstairs and the PS3 is in the living room.
The connection isn't the problem, it's the DNS server settings, whatever the fuck they are.

Title: Re: Games games games

Is the PS3 set up for DHCP or static configuration?

Is it definitely set up right for the wireless network security correctly?

If it is happily getting IP address via DHCP and definitely connecting OK wirelessly you could try:

- From PC run menu, type "cmd.exe"
- From DOS prompt type "ipconfig /all"
- Manually configure the PS3 to match the "DNS Servers" address from above step.

If that doesn't work for the PS3, but does for the PC, then there may be something else going on!

Oh, and FYI DNS turns domain information like www.thetownend.com into IP addresses like 78.129.179.192

I've matched the DNS servers to my PC as you said, but that hasn't worked.
Not quite sure what else to try.

Is it DEFINITELY getting an IP address.

http://www.ehow.com/how_5105809_ps3-ip-address.html

Can you report back all the IP addressed reported by the PS3, and of your PC (using ipconfig as per my previous post).

That way we can tell its configured on same network.

My suspicion is the DHCP is failing probably due to wireless security issue.

InFamous is supposed to be good, but its not my type of game (Infamous is a sandbox video game, combining platforming, shooting, role-playing and puzzle elements - wikkipedia). Well it probably is, but I never get time to play this type.

I played it back in October, loved it. Started on episode one, got frustrated and didn't touch it for months. After finishing Portal and Portal 2 a couple of times I decided I needed to fill the resulting void, so went back to HL2E1. Finished it the other day, am well into Episode 2 now.

Currently playing Dead Island & Deus Ex on the PS3

Dead Island is very much like Fallout 3 but with Zombies.  You can literally use most things as weapons and can also make upgrades for weapons by getting plans by completing quests.  It's a little slow to start with but story builds up nicely.  The worst part of the game is i can't get the credits song out of my head Hoodoo yo Voodoo Bitch.  It's crap but the lyrics are funny.

Deus EX is a typical progressive RPG which you can play in different ways.  You can go all out gun blasting or stealth & hack your way through the game.  Again this game can be a little slow to start but the quests are well thought through

I've just finished Operation Flashpoint: Red River. You play a fireteam leader who has recently joined the U.S Marine Corps out in Tajikistan. Killing insurgents and Chinese PLA is the order of the day. It's squad based and tbh the AI are a bit retarded, but you can do the campaign on line with 3 other people which I would imagine is pretty sweet.

The original Deus Ex is in the top five greatest games ever, and well worth a play if you want to see how things can be good.

Don't play Invisible War though, it's dog shit. Oh and don't play the original DX on the ps2 either, it didn't work as a console game.

Anyone else seen/heard about Star Wars: The Old Republic? It looks good, although I may be biased as it will indulge some of my long dormant childhood geekiness. It's being released on the 22nd December.

http://www.swtor.com/

Looking forward to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim coming in November as well, didn't get very far in Oblivion for various reasons. FM12 is out in just under a month as well so shitloads of games to look forward to.

On the subject of FM, I downloaded the MetalGuitarist's transfer window update from the official forums and started a new game as Swindon. I think some of the players are a little overrated...

F1 2011 n Dead Island

What's your thoughts on Dead Island?  I'm glad they fixed the Save bug I was really pissed off getting my Character Purna to lvl 23 one night only to log back on a couple days later to find she was lvl 16 again and all my new weapons gone.  

I've been playing Co-op quite a bit lately as it makes some of the missions more interesting. I've heard there is another massive PS3 patch to fix some of the niggling glitches but also to accommodate for the new Bloodbath Arena if you bought the Special Edition.  

There will also be an add on set on a boat after you get off the island.

Yeah this game reminds me very much of Fallout 3, sounds like you were one of the lucky on your game play a lot of 360 owners reckoned Dead Island was horribly broken on release some saying it was unplayable but it looks like they've ironed out a lot of the glitches.

Not sure if they've added this into the 360 version but on PS3 they have added the 5 skull collections, brown, blue, orange, green & purple.  If you find these and place them in their right areas you get extra mods which the developers added in.

The Brown Skull allows you to make the Left Hand of Glova which allows you to shoot energy out your hand to kill.  Costs 5x Diamonds & £10,000 to make though. Very expensive to repair too

Orange Skull crafts the Electro Military Knife which does electrical damage equal to weapon damage.

Costs 5x Diamonds + Battery.

Anyone who ordered this Battlefield game online (probably from amazon) and is expecting it to have been delivered and waiting for them on their return from work might be in for a bit of a shock.

Not a game as such put you can currently pick up EA Sports Active 2 from Sainsburys Entertainment for £6.99. Bargain price and well worth purchasing if you like that kind of thing

They may well do but it will be kept under wraps until probably day before release.

If you pre-order it, cheapest currently is Asda Direct at £31.90 Xbox & PS3

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/call-duty-modern-warfare-3-for-ps3-360-20-off-with-voucher-31-90-asda-direct-1049627

Try using Quidco too for extra 4% discount not sure if that works though

Can't be bothered with COD this year. It gets worse by the year and it'll just be a bunch of 8 year olds online who play 24/7 and ruin the game and the fun. My advice is save your £30-40 and rent and complete it within 3 days as the campaigns never take long to complete.

Did you not like GTA IV? That was one of my all time favourite games. The bank job was immense. Gay Tony's was ace as well. Nico's game could've been more fun with the ability to become a mansion dwelling overlord I suppose. I still haven't played San Andreas, despite having it on my 360.

The same as the first MW and MW2. Basically the MP online is just the same every game but the maps change and the perks, guns and options etc change as well. It won't take away the fact you'll get people trying to glitch the game and cheat or the retards who are 8 and spend their whole life outside of school on it. I'm normally bored of the MP after 2 days.

:) I agree to an extend. I got a lot of play out of Cod 4, but never engaged with Black Ops neither multiplayer nor single player. Didn't even complete the campaign.

Perhaps I've gone Spanish and depleted my COD reserves.

Will probably buy Skyward Sword for Christmas (then go on a mass complete as many Zelda games in the lead up to it) probably gaming at its best I hope. None of this COD WM3 BF3 THS2 EDHKF25 crap :)

I'm currently playing Skyrim at the moment and this game is huge.  You can literally spend an hour just exploring.

I've focused levelling Archery, Sneaking, 1 handed Combat, Smithing & Enchanting & also added my perks there too.

Couple things i've discovered in game which i feel are essential.

**Tips (Do Not Read if you don't like Spoilers)**


Just to right of Markarth on the map there is a Guardian Stone called the Lover's Stone this gives you +15% on all your skills and is a major boost when levelling up skills.

In Whiterun in the Jarl's Palace if you go up the steps just behind his throne there is a map with flags on, on a table.  If you click on these flags they will open new places for you to discover on your map.

You can level up Archery 1-50 with Faelderan in Riverwood by getting him to join you. Ask him to train you in Archery, pay x amount of money to level up then speak to him again about trading some goods, go into his inventory take back the gold you paid him then repeat the same steps until you reach 50 skill points.  This will also increase your levels pretty quick too.

Hi i don't play Skyrim and have no intention of doing so either but i would say PC, because of Mods and better graphics probably although more chance of glitches.
However in your case you can play it when you like on PC, it's the winner in my eyes.
Also if you want you can always use your ps3 controller on the PC.

PS3 will have a few advantages like little or no glitches, extremely smooth and you can play it on a big HD TV, if you have one of course.

I got some games for Chrimbo. I love GTA and did some due dilligence on getting some alternatives that might be fun. I got Just Cause and Infamous. I got the first of each so I can eventually progress on to the latter ones if they're any good. I plan to do the same with Uncharted in future as well. I also got Need for Speed: The Run. I love the NFS series.

I never played Just Cause but JC2 was quality if a little repetative. InFamous was a brilliant game and I'm yet to get round to the 2nd one.

I don't think my Mrs realises the mistake she's made - she's got me Sonic Generations, BF3 and Assassins Creed Revelations to go along with Uncharted 3 and Arkham City....

As I understand it (not owning the game) but Skyrim has an enormous glitch on the PS3  - the frame rate slows down to unplayable speeds when the save file goes over a certain size.

I didn't know about that and I'm playing it on the PS3.

A quick Google suggests the issue is quite random and doesn't cause problems for everyone. Hopefully it'll be fixed in patch 1.4 which is due soon.

I was playing Battlefield 3 the other night online and for the first time ever i had over 10 kills and loads of other XP for submission kills and so on then my game crashed  :(

I'm loving this game, but like someone said on here i not use to any of the maps yet, so i run around like a headless chicken.

What's the best kit online to try and upgrade first? I want to get a small scope and laser for any weapon, any ideas?


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: matt_jada on Thursday, December 29, 2011, 11:03:33
Ah don't worry i just realised that for extra gun modifications you have to get so many kills for each weapon you use, 20 for laser sight, not too bad  :)

Although for Reflex Red Dot Sight (whatever this is) you need 90  :hmmm:

It depends what online mode you play,

I play "Head to head seasons"
It automatically pits you against people of the same kind of level as you and with fairly equal teams.

So when playing as Swindon i've not had to play Madrid/ Barca etc, also it doesn't let you use created players...

think you mean suppression...what kits do you use more often? add me if ya on ps3 jimidee. the best scope to use is the Holo on any weapon, laser sights are only good if you shoot at the hip but mostly gives your position away. i would use a fore grip or maybe a supressor.

I've got FM12 on my iphone it's £2.99 until end of today.  The game is ok it's been trimmed down a lot though which is to be expected. For it's current price It's ok but wouldn't pay £6.99.  It's a time killer but it does crash a bit on my phone but then i only have a 3G with 8GB.

If your expecting it to be like the PC version you'll be disappointed. Whilst it has some of the screens it doesn't have all the pc functions.  You can view the match but all you see is little red dots moving around like in the old Championship manager days

the thing is that PC technology is going forward in leaps and bounds but the games makers don't seem to be keeping up with it, some games are poor copies of PS3 and Xbox games and they are using technology from 5 years ago in PC's.

Skyrim is awesome if you have a PC that can run it.

That's because the console market is far bigger. And until the cost of a decent gaming PC (£800+) can match that of a consolde (<£300) it'll probably stay the same way.

Bollocks. My "decent gaming PC" cost less than £400 about 2 years ago and is still powerful enough to run any modern game. It pisses on Skyrim.

Also (this bit not aimed at you Samdy) but I hate the fan boy PC > Console argument. They both have their merits. I wouldn't play strategy games on a PS3, but then I wouldn't play 4 player Pro Evo on a PC.

No you are correct there, mine did set me back a fair bit more than that, but thats what I spend my illicit gains on now rather than going out on the piss. I enjoy console games but I just prefer playing them on my PC.

I need a new graphics card, my current one just isn't cutting it anymore.

Asides from that though it does the job. This is in a machine that although more than 5 years old has had no more than a RAM upgrade.

Completely agree.  A lot of the AMD processors are a good cheap alternative to Intel.  

I've had my pc for a few years and still use the AMD Phenom X4 Quad Core 9950 Black Edition on a cheapish Gigabyte MA790x mobo with a Radeon HD 4890 GFX card.

Its something I've grown to love. I buy games that are a few years old on eBay and were immense upon release for about £10.

I'm going to start the uncharted series soon, much like I've just done with infamous and am soon to do with assassins creed.

The only game I plan to buy on release is Grand Theft Auto 5. I absolutely love GTA.

Not quite, they couldn't afford to stock the really big games, they didn't physically have the money to buy them before they got the money back selling it to the public. they asked for better terms from the distributors but got told to fuck off, essentially. Been on the cards for months and months, some guy tried telling me GAME wouldn't stock Mass Effect 3 as you have to buy DLC to complete the game, they were sticking up for the punters. what a bunch of absolute shit, they're more than happy to charge you £10 for a second-hand game that then costs you £10 more to activate so you can play online, they clearly don't give a fuck about their customers, high prices and dwindling sales have seen to that.

Just started a game on FM'12 as Poole Town using the level 7&8 expansion.

It was going great at first, I signed this fantastic striker called francis Bell (i think his 1st name is francis) He's scored 12 goals in 6 Lge apps and 14 in 8 overall.

Anyway I reached the 1st qualifying round of the FA Cup after the wildcard & preliminary rounds to foind that Clubs from the Premiership down have been included   :(

Ive just been drawn away to Walsall while Man Utd have drawn away against a team below the 8th tier.

Has anyone else had this problem with this download?? slightly pissed off tbh

You might like this one Barry, plenty of snipers about by the sounds of it. I'd get it myself but my graphics card isn't up to it. Its a very early stage mod of Arma 2, its proving so popular that Arma 2 is now 2nd in the Steam sales despite being 3 years old.

Definitely. You've gotta have some patience with it though, it's pretty tough. I've found the best thing to do is really scope out the area and look for a good vantage point. You've still gotta try and get there without being detected though, which is bloody difficult with snipers on the roofs! If you restart a checkpoint some of the enemies spawn in different places which I think is a nice touch.

I've watched some multiplayer demos as well and it looks fantastic, multiple game modes as well as co-op missions and the full campaign in co-op mode.

Nice to have a shooter than isn't purely run and gun. Think this could be one of those under the radar greats of 2012.

You might like this one Barry, plenty of snipers about by the sounds of it. I'd get it myself but my graphics card isn't up to it. Its a very early stage mod of Arma 2, its proving so popular that Arma 2 is now 2nd in the Steam sales despite being 3 years old.

Based on its popularity, wouldn't be surprised for it to get a release on its own in every format eventually. This game would be a best seller for x-box, Playstation once all the bugs/glitches are fixed and the server expanded to hold more people.

Destruction Derby brought up to speed.

What a game! I remember the mode where you had to last as long as possible in the circular pit, and all of the other cars were out to get you.

I have Dirt 3 for the PS3, but I've played it about 4 times in the 6 months I've owned it. I think I'm trying to kid myself that I still like console games, as I've even stopped playing PES now. The next step is to give up football manager, as I've realised that had I devoted the time I've put into that game to something else, I'd probably be pretty amazing at something useful.

Haha I know exactly what you mean. If I put the hours into playing the guitar that collects dust in my room that I have done into playing my Playstations over the years I would be better than Slash.

That mode you speak of was mental! They've got a similar one on this but rather than all 19 cars coming at you from the off, it introduces them in waves.

It's a top quality game, especially if a few mates have it.

After watching the e3 event last month. If anyone missed the 4 day event they have 9 hours of videos on torrent search. Look for G4 E3 day 1,2,3 and 4 they have some great footage and interviews from some great games.

Last of us looks great, from creators of uncharted.

Beyond two souls from the makers of heavy rain.

Also one other that was kept secret was Watch dogs which looks very exciting.

Not to mention the threequals deadspace and assassins creed good gawd its going to be a good 12 months

Cannot wait for GTA V, obviously the graphics are not going to be amazing, in fact there only going to be slightly better than GTA IV but what the hell, it's not all to do with graphics.

The new screens show just how big Los Santos is going to be, not even mentioning all the surrounding countryside and so on.

I agree, i struggle not to use the cheats sometimes  :) but i do try to complete GTA for the first time without cheating (main story)

It's making me want to play GTA IV again, but play Gay Tony or lost & Damned which ive never played, i always thought they were pointless but a few people has reccomended i play them especially gay tony.

Hehe, I used cheats when I first started playing them.
I've completed them all to 100% (without the cheats) except for Vice City Stories, I though that was shite.

Vice City is still my favourite, absolutely love that game.


Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is good, it's slightly GTAish as it has a free roam city.

Vice City is still my favourite, absolutely love that game.

3 was the one that really taught me the love, which I think was actually the first proper one wasn't it?

Is Vice City the one with the big mansion situated on an island between 2 cities, which you eventually own? If that's the one you're on about there was a mission on that which taught me to cheat. You're a gunner on a chopper and there's too many fuckers to kill, before you get killed, so used the slow mo' cheat. Many times!

Skyrim runs a little jerky on my PC. The spec is AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @ 3.5GHz, 8GB RAM, Radeon 6950 (OC'd a little and unlocked) and am running the game off my SSD - anyone else had problems?


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Peter Venkman on Monday, July 16, 2012, 16:49:54
Not at all SY that spec "should" run it without too many problems, turn down the antialiasing to 2 samples and the aniostropic filtering to 4 samples and then untick FXAA in advanced options, then everything should be ok set to high.

Skyrim can take a lot of tweaking to get running smoothly on the lower spec PC's but almost every PC I have installed it on (excluding onboard graphics and older dual core) can usually run it smoothly with some playing around, dont always go with the automatic set up option and set them individually.

My daughter has a play PC I built her and thats only a Athlon X2 7750 3.0ghz with single 4850 graphics and 4gb memory and that runs it easily at 30+fps on those settings.

how do you upgrade weapons? not much of a tutorial on there really.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: jayohaitchenn on Wednesday, July 25, 2012, 09:41:18
You need to check compatibility with your ship, go to the 3rd icon down on the left side, click advanced, and weapons and have a read of what weapons your ship can use. Then use the encyclopedia to find a location where you can buy said weapon. Be aware that if you have multiple turrets then they have have different compatibility.

Check the egosoft forums for recommended weapon load outs for each ship. Personally, I use an M3 class fighter called a Nova with 4 HE Plasma throwers for high damage and 4 much quicker lasers (I forget the name, sorry) that have less damage but are more useful for hitting smaller, quicker craft.

Also there is a manual you can download, google it.

Anyone play World of Tanks?

Did you know that when tanks were being designed during WW1, to keep it a secret they were going to be referred to as 'Water Carriers for the Russians', until someone pointed out that this would be shortened to 'WCs for the Russians', and people might want to know why the Brits were making pissers for the Tsar.  So, they changed the name to 'Water Tanks for the Russians', which became shortened to Tanks.

I, at least, thought that was interesting.

Anyone play World of Tanks?

I used to, but haven't in ages. I played when it was beta-ing and then got super pissed when they updated it to alpha build and my profile (and all my many, many hours of hard work) got deleted. To make matters worse because my computer is slow it now doesn't run it at all. I used to be able to JUST play at a workable speed (my life was a lot easier with artillery) but now I can't get it to run at all. Which is a shame, because it was great fun, even when I averaged at about 2 kills every 3 matches.

It was nicely balanced to be enough of a challenge whilst still being able to advance, although some of the people on there make me want to spit in their faces, which is the general problem with multiplayer games.

Started playing Sins of a Solar Empire recently. I'm slightly dissappointed as it A. has no campaign and B. is really, REALLY chuffing hard and the tutorials are cack. Control scheme and graphics are great though, and it up/downscales nicely to your pc, even if you have an old chugger of a laptop like mine.

They're testing the 8.0 patch at the moment, its supposed to be make the game alot easier to play for people on poorer systems. Might be worth trying when its introduced. It mainly introduces physics (all areas of the map accessible, skidding, jumping, pushing etc) British tanks coming in at 8.1. 

Nice bit of trivia, Donkey :)

I don't find it that hard at all.

Agree about the lack of campaigns though. I try going through the achievements instead but once you have the upper hand in a game it all becomes a bit repetitive and boring.

It definitely seems like something I'll have to play three or four more times before I get the hang of it. I love the control scheme though, I also played Homeworld recently for the first time and the control system for that was a pig compared to SoSA.

That sounds pretty awesome, I will very probably get back into it if that works. It was a really great game, better than any other Tank sim I've played. I also like that it's free.

Question :

I play a game with a few mates, its a strategy/god game set in space. One person hosts, the rest do their moves and send the file in, the hosts processes and then sends out the new files and so on. (think mulitplayer email chess crossed with railroad tycoon crossed with Diplomacy/Risk in space).

Its a good laugh and very strategic and one of the benefits is that you can do your moves whenever you want.

However, the game does not run on anything past XP, so we need a new game - similar in style, mulitplayer, single host. Can anyone recommend anything ?

Medieval Total War II can be set up as a hotseat multiplayer game. If a player faction attacks another player faction then the real-time battle is controlled by the aggressor. Think there are about 25 playable factions so you could have up to 25 players.

Centered around the 'Attitude Era' of wrestling rather than the current - which should make it better.

Bit different from Road to WrestleMania which for the most part has always been a decent feature. Just annoying that the roster will be out of date before the game comes out - nothing more annoying than that!!!

The sensation of understeer is superb and I'm only using a pad and not wheel and pedals. You've really got to have your F1 thinking cap on, you can't just floor it out of corners or else you end up facing the wrong way.

I've got WWE13 lined up on Lovefilm, not played a Wrestling game since the first couple of Smackdown games.

I see what you mean - on previous F1 games I seen to be able to lap about 5 seconds quicker than everyone - on a full grand prix its not even a challenge.

Nope, you're not alone. Attitude era is definitely when wrestling (in terms of the superstars, storylines etc) was at its best and them choosing to base their career mode on it is a brilliant idea.

The roster (both legends and current superstars) looks pretty impressive too.

well 3hrs to update my pc and 10 hours to download the demo.

finally had a go tonight, set it to easy and did the young driver thing then moved onto career mode. I automatically join Williams and set Paul Di Risser (I know thats not right) as my rival.

I qualify 18th for Monza, first lap alot of traffic I find myself in 20th. Second lap I'm 18th before spinning off the track and rejoining in 20th with a 10 second penalty. 3rd lap was ok. 4th lap I got up to 17th and posted the fastest lap time!! then 5th lap I spun off the track twice, dropped to 20th and got another 3 ten second penalties!!!!!!!

...but...apparently Sir Frank Williams is still positive im alright!

It's much better than the last one. They have actually changed and improved the things they needed to. Just simple things like adding the young drivers test in, changing the menu formats and the career menu navigation. And the gameplay seems smoother as well.

Possibly the only game I've ever been excited about. It looks great. I hope it's more 'Vice City' and 'San Andreas' than GTA IV.

Yeah, does look pretty special.

My only concern is I have an Xbox currently as i was pissed off with my PS3 dying, and I wasn't going to get it repaired a third time.

A game of this size on the Xbox will probably be about 20 fucking discs.

Might have to look at getting a new PS3.
Does anyone know if you can now get the old GTA games (III, Vice City, San Andreas) from the Playstation Store?

Scratch that, just seen that GTA III is now on the PS store and Vice City & San Andreas are set for a re-release on PS3.

That's my mind pretty much made up then :)

Agreed. The trailer looks fucking immense. Can't wait until this is out. What's the chances of it being put back again?

You play as 3 protagonists in gta v and i can see the story being abit more serious than previous games but also that gta comedy we all love. I can this being released with new consoles so probably will get put back.

I noticed you can pre-order on Amazon @£39.99. The bundle option is, buy GTAV PS3 and GTAV XBox 360 for £79.98. I'm not sure they'll have many takers there.

Apparently there'll be online multiplayer for 32. I've never played games online, but I can imagine doing bank jobs or something in GTA would be special.

Post by: ojdhaze on Monday, November 19, 2012, 00:09:13
Pre ordered Hitman:Absolution with Amazon and you get a code to use on PSN Network or Xbox Live to download a side quest where you are overlooking a party from a sniping position and have to kill some jerkoff of importance.
Whilst playing this side quest you can unlock things in that which transfer over to the main game, which isn't bad for just pre ordering a game.

Kinda agree that linear FPS are very samey now. Probably will continue to be until next gen consoles arrive.

As for a FPS that is a bit more interesting I have to recommend Far Cry 3, that is coming out this Friday (30th). It's an open-world first person shooter. Think along the lines of Assassins Creed, but with guns, a far bigger map, and lots more to do.

From what I have seen of it so far, it looks awesome. Excited for my pre-order to arrive.  :D

The game is a lot different than the last black ops, this new version has different endings depending on the choices you make, the first time i played it i only done 5 missions & made the wrong choice & it was game over.

I have. Probably the best game I've played on PS3, so in my opinion, I would say buy it. :)

Edit: I should probably elaborate; - the single player is the best I have ever played.
                                             - Coop is fun, not exceptional.
                                             - If you only buy FPS games for the online multiplayer, then I wouldn't buy it. They've tried to make it too much like COD.

It lacked the fun of some of the earlier ones and was a bit too serious, with some annoying shit like having to befriend people, but I still loved it.

Gay Tony's was the shit though, I loved that. I still haven't completed The Lost and Damned, as I get a bit fucked off with riding around - give me taxis please.

I can't wait for GTA5, I think it'll be one of the best games ever. I'm actually tempted to pre-order a game for the first time ever.

I didn't realise it was rated particularly highly. I thought it was generally accepted that the game was a bit of a rush job to cash in on the next console generation. It was still decent, but it terms of replayability far behind their previous installments.

I just read the install info

Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar Games has yet created, and takes full advantage of every ounce of processing power available in the current generation of consoles.  In order to provide the best possible experience for such a massive and detailed world, the game will have installation requirements on the Xbox 360.

Grand Theft Auto V will ship on two discs; Disc 1 will be used for a one-time mandatory install and Disc 2 will be used to play the game. After the install, players will be able to enjoy both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online without any need to switch discs.

This initial install will require an Xbox 360 Hard Drive or an external 16GB USB flash drive (sold separately) with at least 8 GB of free space. If using a USB flash drive it must be at least USB 2.0 with a minimum 15mb/s read speed and formatted for Xbox 360 use. A new USB flash drive is recommended to ensure optimum performance

I'm loving Far Cry 3, just love it.

I completed Max Payne 3 earlier. Very disappointing for a game that takes up 28GB. It looks nice but the game play was very two dimensional, it felt like an arcade shooter at times.

Only took me about a week to finish as well.

I disliked intensely IV's driving too; this one is much better. I'm not sure whether to describe it as 'arcadey' or not, just much less frustrating. Shooting and the cover system is much better too - they've clearly nicked some stuff from other games notably RDR

Well, just started it and drove the Audi R8 as Franklin. Cars handle much better, seems more realistic to me, easier to keep on the road and don't blow up after a couple of prangs.

Can't believe how good the graphics are. It makes me want to just go and explore, something I never really had the urge to do in GTA before. Not really sure I can judge a game on a few minutes of play, but looks and seems incredible. Itching to spend a whole weekend rinsing it.

Edit: And the music. I love ambient electronica and having had the game on pause while I did the washing up, I must admit it's very likeable and has a bit of a Global Communication feel to it. Great shit.

Go to the strip clubs, get a private dance (Don't walk straight into the back room, bad idea. Flirt & Touch the dancers (When the bouncer isn't there) And you can take her home at the end of the night when the meter fills, get her number and they send you naked pictures... Winning.

:nod: Fucking hateful. I'm in love with the game, it's so engrossing like a film. The driving now is a pleasure, so haring around is the bollocks. I do get annoyed though with what I can only presume is me being an oath, and that is how often I seem to jump out of a fucking plane when flying like a nutcase.

Hate the bug which means upgrading cars is a total waste of money though. Every car I've upgraded has gone missing eventually and even my cars eventually default to their original state. Several $XXX,XXX down the drain, which is annoying.

Ok, so having blasted through Modern Warfare 1+2 and Battlefield 2+3 in the past week, I am quite confused. How did they get the critical acclaim they have? Modern Warfare 1 has, I would actually stretch to say a good plot, and Battlefield 3 had an interesting one, but neither of them are exactly war and peace...

And character design is fucking shit too- the amount of times playing Modern Warfare 2 I'd sit there squinting 'is that a US marine or a russian paratrooper? Oh fuck, I'm dead'.

And why on Battlefield 3 specifically is it impossible for me to go two minutes without dying? Or having a quick time event? Even the tank and plane bits were a little bit terrible. And why can't I shoot out all the lights I want? Why only specific ones, leaving the rest to dazzle the fuck out of me, or there to be so much smoke and dust that I can see absolutely shit because of the fucking Frostbite 2 engine flashing its vag around everywhere going 'oooh, look at my bloom and dust and clouds'.

There's a single player mode on there, which they obviously spent a lot of time and money on, and I find people testing if not generally hate worthy (particularly the ones who play COD or BF), therefore I will judge it on that.

I have got to the Premier in 2 years by selling everyone apart from Foders and Luongo, Loungo is an excellent Premier League player in 2 years well worth keeping, I have turned down bids of £5m+ for him.

The 'add maneuver' function is really useful. Got two poor souls trapped up in orbit with no fuel or power left, but having learnt from my mistakes I'm gonna try for a moon orbit and return.

Mine have a tendency to turn out that way purely by accident. The subconscious is a wonderful thing...

Not yet, but as the game isn't in full v1 release yet (think the most up to date is 0.22), it's getting patched and better constantly. Wouldn't be surprised to see it happen.

Might start a sub-topic, it's one of those slow-burner games (pardon the pun) that generally requires a bit of conversation.

Found a plug-in last night that will automatically launch and get you into orbit. Definitely going to give that a try!


Title: Re: Games games games

Cheat! I managed half an orbit earlier. I keep running out of fuel so must be doing something wrong. I'll keep at it though. Great game.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Samdy Gray on Thursday, December 5, 2013, 16:29:29
Haven't used it yet :P

Was reading last night about how to get into orbit efficiently and using as little fuel as possible. The game uses proper Newtonian physics so works on the basis of Δv, drag, terminal velocity etc.

At lower atmosphere the terminal velocity is around 150m/s. Try and thrust past that and the increased drag will just waste fuel. Atmosphere thins at 10,000km, so drag reduces and you can throttle back to maintain a constant velocity and save fuel.

I tried the MOAR POWER route and added more fuel tanks & engines, but that adds to weight and just makes flying the thing even more difficult.

But when you do hit 10,000km you want to be orientating the rocket at around 45º to try and get into some orbit. Once you reach space (70,000km) you can shut off throttle and then prepare for an orbit burn using manoeuvre mode in map view (hit M on the keyboard).

Because of the proper physics it's quite difficult to try and keep the thing pointing in one constant direction when the weight is always reducing because of fuel usage and staging, whilst also taking into account drag reducing at thinner atmosphere.

It really is quite addictive and feeds my inner geek very well.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Honkytonk on Thursday, December 5, 2013, 23:44:11
You using MechJeb Samdy? MechJeb is great. Saves you faffing about making silly mistakes. I'd recommend people learn how to do stuff properly first though, gives you a grounding in physics that comes in very handy later.

Also if you do career mode, science can be a bitch to come by to start with, but do what I (accidentally) did and it becomes really easy to procure- send a probe with sciencey things on it on a super elliptical orbit that causes it to get caught by the sun- observing stuff that's as far away from your boggo orbit gave me about 400 science the first time round!

It can be really difficult to return though, so make sure you've got plenty of electrical power (sticking loads of batteries on so you light up like a christmas tree is a good idea as they barely weigh anything) and a comm antenna just in case.

For rocket building I highly recommend the Kerbal Engineer mod. Shows you the thrust to weight, max delta v, all sorts of useful stuff, and you'll be surprised how much difference something like having a stage fire later can do for you.

Anyone with the demo who feels they're missing out on space planes, don't worry- they're buggy and broken, and virtually impossible to use. Mods are needed to make them even vaguely flyable in the context KSC wants you to use them in

I invested far, far too much time into KSP over the Christmas break.

I've cracked getting into orbit (without assistance from MechJeb). I've also managed an orbit (and succesful return) of the Mun and Minmus.

Yesterday, I managed to get a lander onto the moon but burnt up all of my fuel on entry so now poor Bill Kerman is stranded until I can send a rescue mission.

Progressing quite well with career mode, the extra equipment unlocks like solar panels certainly help. How are you getting on Honkytonk?


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Honkytonk on Thursday, January 2, 2014, 17:06:24
Well-ish, have done the opposite and barely played it over christmas. My sandbox space station is taking shape nicely (slowly building the infrastructure to make an inter-planetary mission, hopefully going to be able to use it to visit every single planet/moon, including enough probes/rovers etc. to explore them), although career mode is going hilariously poorly- I landed on the Mun (great!) and was dicking about in low gravity on EVA and kind of killed my pilot (not so great!). The idea came to me that I should mount a rescue mission for the stranded craft (it had valuable science etc. on board and no antenna, it had plenty of fuel left and I thought it would be a laugh). Cue four missions where my bigger, better capsules kept smashing into the Mun because I got distracted or underestimated my approach speed, or ended up being forced to land in a crater and the whole lander toppling over and exploding. Finally got a rescuer landed safely, EVA'd over, and the damn engine had randomly fallen off the bloody capsule! Waste of fuel, time and Kerbals, but hilarious nonetheless.

Will pop up some screengrabs relatively soon. Been fiddling around with editing savefiles just to cut out all the bloody tedious getting to orbit with all the fuel for my interplanetary craft. Takes me a minute to lug up and dock a bunch of full tanks instead of 15 minutes of orbiting and rendezous and so on.

I can understand why, but I really, really am enjoying it. It's like GTA but doesn't take itself too seriously at ANY point. The first mission is rubbish though.

I've just spent an evening exploring the scale 3D world map on Outerra. It was quite fun to plumb in the lat/long for Swindon and see the real scale elevations, especially the views of the Ridgeway :)

This was prompted by a Reddit post which had a scale map of Middle Earth for Outerra, so I can see myself wasting a lot of time exploring that too.

Anyone else messed about with Outerra? I really love free roam games, so to have a whole map of the world to just explore is immense. I just need an Oculus Rift and omni-treadmill and I'd never leave the house.

January was Ni No Kuni, without question the best jrpg I've played and February is XCOM which is proving to be much better than I expected. XCOM reminds me of a cross between the PC games Commandos and Syndicate from the 90s, love it.

PS Plus is very good value but I'm not a FPS man and that seems to be what we're getting at the moment. Last of Us was downloaded last night to keep me going through March. I'm trying to resist the urge of PS4 but it looks so shiny.

It's similar to Minecraft in some aspects, but with more realistic graphics. Just saying that is barely scratching the surface though, there's a lot more depth and reasons to play than I ever found when I tried Minecraft. Like I've said, there are problems with Hackers and Abusive Admins, but it has got better recently apparently. You NEED to have a microphone to play though, otherwise every single person you come across will try and bash your skull in with a rock.

If you come across a friendly player who's willing to help you set up you can have some really good fun.

on FM12 I've just won the Premier League in the 20/21 season, was level on points with Man City but behind on goal difference, had them in the last game but the week before had them in the FA cup final. My RB got sent off in that game but I got it rescinded, lost the FA cup final but beat them 3-0 at the CG to win the league. Very happy, unexpected and best of all the board don't expect me to win it in the coming season either. Won the League Cup too, and semi finals of the Champions League.

Got a couple of wonderkids and one absolute world class player on £97k per week (over 10% of my overall wage bill), paid off my debts, got the CG up to 25k but they won't build a new one as they don't think the support is there :/ sold out every home game apart from the early league cup games.

That'll do!

deadwood players? You cheeky scamp!! I'll have you know I only sign young, hungry players at Burton! I don't have any deadwood! Just players not quite ready for the Premiership who are out on loan.

I have 3 million quid left to spend so I might ask the board to transfer that to wages as I don't really need anyone else (well, a quality Left back would be handy but i'm not going to get one for the cash I have, so my 19 year old regen Irish left back is going to have to learn quickly!

The 3XS has a better graphics card but the PCSpecialist is a better processor.

The 3XS has a much worse motherboard.

The 3XS has a fair bit faster memory.

For £800 I would expect a fair bit more for my money, as I build comparable PC's to both of those for around £100-£150 less than both and I still can price in a cost of making them, also I build them inside 2 to 3 days as 7 to 9 working days is very slow.

And a good SSD will boot into windows in around 15 to 20 seconds easily if set up right.

Also Wes is shit apparently.

Playing Football manager 2015 on demo at the moment.

A few nice updates like better graphics and shouting at players during matches.

Some down sides...virtually impossible to get consistant results without playing 4411 formation, loads of times every game my players hit the woodwork, probably 5 times per match, matches ending 5-2 and 6-4 too common.

Wes is pretty shit and lets in hatfuls of goals, Branco totally useless as is Turnbull, M Smith cannot hit a barn door with a banjo but Obika and Williams both scored 12 goals each at the end of the demo (Jan 6th) with Willo playing mostly as a right winger.

Luongo, Kasim and B Smith are always injured and unfit no matter what training they do.

N Thompson was sent off 3 times and gave away 4 penalties by Jan 6th!

Stephens wins everything in the air but nothing on the floor.

Finished 4th after 23 games.

1st round of the FA Cup...away at Cheltenham! Nathan sent off for giving away a penalty after 15 mins but I still won 3-1 ;)

Just playing my 2nd part season to see if I can get the knack of it better.

Got myself an Xbox One couple weeks ago, it came with Assassins Creed Black Flag, and AC Unity.. I also got Fifa 15 and the Lego Movie game! I'm actually surprised at how much I like the Assassins Creed games!..

I say games, I've only played Black Flag so far.


Title: Re: Games games games

Assassins Creed games are all pretty good but for me Black Flag is the best so far.

I love the Assassins Creed series. Played them all from the start up to Revelations. I enjoyed ACI, but then I'd not played any others, but in comparison to the others (so far) it was very weak.

I've Just finished Revelations (ACII DLCII), which is the best yet and have got ACIII to start soon enough. Love the evolution of Ezio and how you can go on ridiculous killing combos in a crowd of 20-30 guards. So satisfying.

I'm aware though that it looks like it's getting a bit gun-based, which is hopefully not as shit as it seems, as for me the fun is all in the blades. Saying that, the bombs latterly were immense, so perhaps guns could be good.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through the first one having never played them before.

It's alright. You can tell it's the same Studio as Prince of Persia, and that aspect of it is good. I enjoy playing it, but it's kind of pointless to spend the time (like you're supposed to...) taking out guards stealthily and removing archers etc. as A. the archers respawn (which is pretty bloody annoying), and B. when it comes to the assassination missions you can just run in, murder the target, and then stand with your back against a wall and fight off 90+ guards with a simple 'hold down block, press counter' routine.

I have to say, I do find the 'tailing of the guards' aspect a little boring, but for the most part I do enjoy it.

I really wanna get a few more games. I've never been much of a 'gamer' but I am really enjoying my Xbox One. I even have Gold Membership for Xbox Live, check me out!

After finishing the Mass Effect Trilogy for the first time today (was bought it just before crimbo as an early present by my boss - how he thinks it'll make me more productive I do not know!) I can't help but feel a little empty.

I ploughed close to 90ish hours into my Shepard to make him into a beacon of Patrick-Stewart esque hope and brilliance, and I get to the end and the available choices are a bunch of wank.

Kind of disappointed.

Going to go through the DLC I've missed (I don't have the extended cut or Citadel for ME3, haven't got the Shadow Broker for ME2 which is supposed to be good) and see if that makes me happier. Anyone else experience this when they finished it?

I got a corner radial desk from Office Clearance Warehouse. http://www.officecw.co.uk/acatalog/Corner_Workstations.html

Cost about £120 by recollection. It came with a pedestal and was a fucking bargain when you consider it's seriously fucking strong and heavy. They also came and put it together and everything. It would comfortably hold three 19" monitors.

latest update of FM15 has Luongo and Kasim both hovering around the £2m mark. Also, I've been able to get a 352/532 formation to work, currently first after 14 games, level on points with Shitty but with a game in hand.

How did you get on? I won the league eventually after a horrible final 10 games with 7 draws, 1 loss and only 2 wins. Currently 12 games into my 15/16 and I'm sat 2nd after overhauling my squad. Lost Luongo for £3m to Burnley but I saw fuck all of that in the end...

I signed Denis Stracqualursi on a free transfer and he's scored 13 in 11 so far.





Title: Re: Games games games

likewise, won the league after a god awful run in, was 10 points clear with 8 games to go, then went L-D-L-L-L-D-W-L, won the league by 1 point, if Shitty had won their final game they'd have taken the title. brought in a few new faces, but missed out on most of my targets. Haven't had to sell anyone yet but bournemouth are after Fods and Kasim, and Williams has been unsettled by Palace and is demanding a move. they're offering me fuck all so he's not going anywhere! Brought in Osman Sow from Hearts for £100k, 2 in 2 league games for him.

I have it and love it, but its a bit bare bones at the moment. It has amazing potential but feels a bit empty at the minute, I'm surprised many little features from Elite 2 aren't even in this yet.

My advice would be to watch some steams of people playing and see what you think - http://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Elite:%20Dangerous

Elite is good but it's not a full game yet. It's more of a rolling beta, a bit like Kerbal Space Program (speaking of which I've been spending some time on the career mode of 0.9 recently and am enjoying it even if it is tremendously frsutrating).

I'm waiting for it to either come down in price or actually become a full game before I buy it, butit looks like just my kind of thing. And the graphics are fooking beautiful. Been playing the old Freelancer games and Tachyon: The Fringe again recently to get rid of the craving.

He's a tight arse, balance of £97.5m but transfer budget of £30m and expects a top 4 finish and to reach the knockout rounds of the CL in our first attempt.

However, he eventually expanded the CG to a capacity of 24,523 despite two seasons of filling it and refusing to expand.

Personal preference. I've always had playstations so it's a no brainer for me. Also helps that all my best mates have playstations as well though, for online play!

This - unless he's madly into one particular game that's only available on 1 platform or has a huge preference for one or the other, being able to play online with his mates will make far more difference than whether he has an Xbox or PS. So try to find out what most of his closer friends have and go with that.

...Preston ended up going 45 league games without a win. They won 2 games all year in all competitions, beating Derby 2-0 in the FA Cup. Lost in the next round to Bristol after a replay. 1 win, 8 draws, 3 losses, 32 goals for, 104 against. 11 points all year. They were *awful*.

I went up as champions, huzzah!

I'm not all that keen on heavies anyway. I only play the Churchill 1 because it's there and I'd might as well make the most of the daily multiplier bonuses. Having said that though, I've recently acquired a KV-1S and I think I may be able to have some fun with that.

Is the Comet any good? I've been thinking of dumping one of my tanks for a Comet.

The gameplay, physics and visuals are all excellent. The AI is also much better, a lot more intelligent and will make things a lot more difficult for you. The lack of game modes is the only let down, but if you are happy to just a use it as a racing simulator then I would say it's definatley worth it IMO.

I've got fairly niche tastes in games now a days, but Caves of Qud is pretty ace if you can go in for that old school rogue like feel and look.

Had a massive month binge on Crypt of the Necrodancer, which is ace and recommended. Hard as fuck to start with but you soon get the hang of it.

Dirt Rally, an early access game from Codemasters (which may well end up carrying the Colin McRae Rally name when it's finished) is bloody good fun, but also really bloody hard as well! I'm finding it a lot easier to use my xbox one controller than I am my proper wheel and pedal setup, but this has been curtailed somewhat by my controller developing the common fault of the left stick creeping upwards, making it impossible to use. It's been sent back to Microsoft and they've dispatched a replacement (with a delivery estimate of 'within the next 28 days') so I've not played that, Rocket League or Project Cars for weeks :(

I just follow the satnav, try to beat the lights, overtake slower trucks on sketchy bends, that kinda jazz... the only real gripe I have with the game is there are no hedges on any of the smaller british roads, it's all open fields and stuff.

Fallout 4 is bloody good, as expected.

I'm loving it so far, but with a voiced player character and seriously simplified skill/perk system I am wondering about replay value/role-playing.

As far as I can tell there isn't really an alternate way of doing things. No sneaking past the raiders in the museum for example. It's all big guns and power armour which is a shame.

The crafting is awesome, hope the modders get loads more assets in there though. I want to build a nice looking town. thinking more Tenpenny Towers than Megaton.

I've not been playing AC3 for that long, but I love the fact I'm super slow and new games come out quicker than I can complete old ones. (I started it from the start a few years back.)

Love the Assassins Creed series, but as I can see it's now moving towards guns I'm afraid I'll enjoy it less. Nothing is more satisfying in that game than huge combo kills with a dagger or sword.

The scale of the game is truly bewildering. Only played for an hour or so in Solo mode and I've been pulled out of hyperspace by pirates twice, managed to destroy the first pirate for a small reward, then got blown up by the second fella. Grrrr.

Biggest tip at the start would be to head for a resource extraction site and follow the police around. Let them do the grunt work and wait for the pirate to go down to 10% hull then open up on them. If you can do this for an Anaconda that's 150k credits

Only played the first two (both of which very good), but the latter I've installed but not played. A Star Wars loving friend of mine has said that it's not essential to have seen the movies (which is good because I haven't), and says the game is amazing.. so I'm very much looking forward to trying this one out!

My mum gave me the Walking Dead game (PS3), which I've been binging on as well. Designed to look like the comic book, so far I've only met Hershel and Glenn as legit characters, but there's been a good balance of zombie killing, internal struggles and cannibalism (as well as some drab bits - true to the TV series then...)

It's an interesting debate.. I don't play them enough to see much difference, are there any stand out differences that swing it then?

I only ask as I've only ever had FIFA because it's come with my console. I've never bought it separately.

I found 2016 a lot harder, it's a good price though.

Re: FIFA v PES, I only basically moved to FIFA cos someone bought it for me and then you're looking at playing vs other people who (in my case, anyway) all play FIFA. I love PES though. I swear most people when you ask why they prefer FIFA to PES mention the lack of licensing or graphics, rather than actual gameplay. That seems to me to be the most irrelevant part.

I'm definitely not gamer enough to have a real opinion though.

My view on the PES v FIFA debate :

FIFA is superb - it looks amazing and plays like a real life football simulator. PES is more arcade and that makes it, in my opinion, more fun and more playable. FIFA has all the teams and all the kits but that doesn't take long too fix on PES.

I can appreciate the subtleties of FIFA but having bought a few versions recently I always go back to PES.

I didn't buy 16 as it just didn't seem different enough to 15. I've played 16 a bit at work and I think the AI is crap. FIFA hit a wall a few years ago. PES is more fun at the moment, a lot less 'realistic' but enjoyable.

I've never played PES, aside from a demo..

I like games to be unrealistic if I'm honest though, makes them more like a game..

Remember the old FIFA games where you could have cheats? You could have a giant ball, or a beachball.. or giant players etc..

With you on that so far, but the take down controls are far more satisfying in 4. The other day I rappelled into a cave, swung across to do a death from above, then snuck up behind another guard, stabbed him in the throat and then used knife throw takedown on his mate. Felt like a fucking ninja!

My only gripe with the series is replayability is probably zero. I just can't see myself having another play through which is a shame.

4 definately has better weaponry and vehicles, flying on the micro chopper and riding an elephant are great fun, as for replayability there are several paths to the goal and I have to admit that I have played 3 right through a few times but only completed 4 the once and have no massive urge to go for it again.

Good games though.

Passengers only get off at their corresponding shaped stops. Square passengers get off at square stops. Triangle passengers... and so on

The square stations are the focal point because square stations are rare, yet there's many square passengers. All lines need to deliver to a square station as quickly as possible to get them out of the system and free up space on carriages for other passengers. Also, try to avoid linking together stations of the same shape because that will leave you unable to unload passengers and, therefore, unable to pick up new passengers.

I hate you Mr. Edmunds.

This.

You also need a kickstart ROM for any added ROM to work on the Amiga.

Most other emulators though you don't need one and just run the program.


Title: Re: Games games games

I can understand that, games have come along massively but I playing them for the nostalgia and do still enjoy them, but I don't play sessions just the occassional hour here and there.

With the Spectum and C64 half the fun was waiting begging for the tape not to fail after 15 minutes of loading, it sort of made the anticipation stronger and you tended to play games for longer because you couldn't swap games instantly as you do now....it does change it when it loads in seconds.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: RobertT on Thursday, February 9, 2017, 19:31:35
The old Football Manager used to have a critical point at about 108 on the tape deck that it could crash while loading, it took 132 in total.  In real terms that was about 25 minutes I think.

An SSD is worth it! I managed to pick up a Samsung 850 Evo for £91 from Amazon in 2015 on a lightning deal.

Massive improvement on loading times for games and startup time for windows - Going from near 60 secs to 15 secs!


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Peter Venkman on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 17:25:40
An SSD is by far and away the best cheap performance improvement for normal Windows, much better to spend £80 to £100 on an SSD than a similar amount (or even more) on memory or even processor.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Flashheart on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 17:32:05
The difference has been impressive. It now boots in a fraction of the time and opening files happens pretty much instantly, which is great for working and what not.

I'm also very impressed with the sound from my new MB. I'd never really bothered in the past and just settled for standard on-board jobbies. I don't think I'd want to settle for a standard sound card after knowing the difference now though, it really does make a huge difference, although I suppose that'll depend on the game being played.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Peter Venkman on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 18:37:38
I use a Soundblaster Z and the sound compared to a standard onboard is pretty amazing when twinned with good speakers or headphones.

A good SSD is a godsend, I use one 512gb for the OS and working files and one 512gb just for my steam installation, games load in seconds with the SSD.

I first programmed with punch cards and that was in 1984 on a Honeywell mainframe, we had 12 and 14 inch floppy disks and 30mb Winchester hard drives which were the dogs bollocks back then. They were massive and had about 10 platters the size of an LP record and slotted into a machine that was 4 foot high.

Got Resident Evil: Biohazard for my birthday. Played it for a couple of hours and really enjoying it, but its not Resident Evil as we know it.
It's the first RE game that has moved to first person shooter game play. Initial thoughts on this are positive and it works well.
A big change is that as far as i can tell so far this RE has no association with the likes of Racoon City, T-Virus, Umbrella Corp. etc etc. If i didn't know better i would say i was playing something more Silent Hill Esq.
You play a guy looking for his wife who has been captured by some inbred hillbilly red-necks and kept captive in their house.

I've been a massive fan of the RE series so far so i have high hopes for this one.

The Resident Evil series has always been too effective for me and I can't play it for long before the tension is too much.

I'm not sure there's anything else on the Switch that looks worth buying so far which is really disappointing. I've got a feeling this may be their last console.

Will eventully get one wh n they drop in prices a bit or start doing bundles.

I assume there will be a Mario, Mario Kart and Mario Party due out soon. Those games are usually enough to drive a Nintendo console.

Although, I'd have thought they'd released with some of those titles.


Title: Re: Games games games
Post by: Tails on Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 08:43:01
Yeah the release has been so weak. I think they focused all their efforts on Zelda (which is fair enough, the game is massive) but they'd have been better off delaying it and releasing with a Mario at least. Zelda is worth it though mate, the dungeons are a bit lacking but there's just so much you can do you forget about it.

Be interesting to see when Skyrim and FIFA come out. Not sure how well they will do.

Three factions to choose from:

New Conglomerate
Terran Republic
Vanu Sovereignty

Four different continents to play on, battling 24/7 for 365 days a year!

Completely free to play and it's not pay to win.

Co-Op Career mode, Co-Op Ultimate team, plenty to keep you busy in Ultimate team to build a half decent squad and amount a good number of coins without doing your bollocks on packs. Online Draft against Friends.

All the Cities Skylines chat has led me to reinstall it and fire it up again... got my city to just under 100k inhabitants, then it was just gridlock everywhere, nothing moved so lots of people died, population dropped to 75k. Time to start again, me thinks!

Don't start again, get the bulldozer out and redesign your road system. You'll learn why you had the blockage in the first place. Use the traffic tool to inspect journeys at the busiest points and find out where and why the traffic is going where it is going.

There's some good stuff on youtube explaining traffic and all sorts. One trick is to try and avoid traffic lights. I recently downloaded a version with the latest DLC and I'm able to switch traffic lights off, which makes a huge difference to the flow.

Cities skylines again.

I have one of the latest updates with natural disasters, and managed to accidentally plonk a tornado right in the middle of the city. What a kerfuffle that was. I was supposed to be planting trees.

A few screenshots. I've only built on about 1/2 of that map, but my machine is starting to struggle. Not sure how much more I can build without upgrades.

It's definitely a game in which you need to keep an eye on the time.

That's another late start for me tomorrow. Ooops.

Been twatting about getting RetroPie going on my raspberry pi3. Decent so far, got NES, SNES, Megadrive, PS1 and some super old Amstrad CPC games running pretty well. N64 emulation is choppy as fuck though.
