LucklessWonder: Well, I've been a terrible gamer. Basically, all I've been playing this week is this glorified Bejeweled clone with anime boobs:
[ksr-ugc.imgix.net image 700x525]I bought it as part of a Humble Bundle, so my success at seeing all the cartoon breasts did at least effectively include a charitable donation.

I see that Lego Jurassic World is on sale on Steam, so I may buy that. Also, I'm going to finish out both XCOM: Enemy Unknown & Brütal Legendthis week to get my 12in12 back on track.

Also, here's a link to one of my Minecraft streams where I die. A lot.
[_ image _x_]


Nothing wrong with anime boobs, it's when you start walking around with one of these:

i2.asntown.net

That we all think "Yeah, time to stop that shiat."

Space Station Wagon: I need an idea for a game that I can play with my GF.
Something like an old school rts, with base building, resource gathering and a deep tech tree.
Basically something we can play together and build stuff our own cities and whatnot, then when we get bored we can war or war against the computer.

I prefer real time, but RTS has a genre seems to have died.
I feel like we will be playing Age of Empires 2 or Rise of Nations. I wish I kept my copies of Battle for Middle Earth 1 & 2. I can't believe they aren't on steam.

I've never played multiplayer turn base? How does that work. I feel like it would take forever.

Suggestions?


For turn-based, I'd recommend one of the later Civ games (5 or 6) or Endless Space. Total War: Warhammer (1 or 2) is also fun co-op -- it has a feature where you can 'gift' units to your co-op partner for a battle, so they can control part of your army instead of sitting on their hands. Note: these games can take a relatively long time from start to finish, so expect multiple sessions.

RTS is tricky, it's almost all about micromanaging your units for combat nowadays, not base-building and resource management.

Game of Scones: Picked up Picross S and Golf Story yesterday for Switch, so I'll be getting into those this weekend.

Also going for the best ending in Metroid: Samus Returns.

Oh, and trying unsuccessfully to find the Samus / Metroid amiibo pack.


I know things are different for each area, but I found the Samus/Metroid pack at my local Target the Sunday after they came out. They weren't located with their other stock of Amiibos. I had to ask a clerk if they had them. They did have 4 or 5 packs of them available though. The same Target had more than enough SNES for everyone in line this morning.

The new Stellaris DLC came out not long ago, so been doing a playthrough as a machine race.  And I'm kicking those lousy organics all over the map.

Turn timers and saving the game to pick it up later are your friend. I have a Civ 6 game a few buddies and I dive into a couple times a week that we've had going for about a month now. Turn based multiplayer is fantastic if you don't mind putting in the time.

Swordblade: Dimensio:

[img.fark.net image 422x750]Space should only be a concern with this thing if you can't even find room for a remote. PS4 and 360 controller for scale. That said, I won't fault you for sticking to other methods, especially if Nintendo's supply chain continues to embarrass itself. Our local Best Buy apparently got 20, compared to 5 of the NES version, so that's a marked improvement, if still low.


My concern is HDMI ports. I just bought a switcher so that I can connect my Switch and then possibly get an XBone or a PS4. I do not know if it will accommodate more than that.

Last Man on Earth: hammer85: Currently Many Faced God Fane has found an eternal vault, and saved a Sourcerer (to then steal his face) when shiat caught on fire. Don't cast magic on the top of an oil rig, friends.

I have to admit, I'm disappointed how useless the face-stealing ended up being.  I guess it's better as a generic Undead, but as Fane, you can get your original mask back about five seconds after leaving Fort Joy anyway.  Unless there are some unique faces, and nothing seems to suggest that's the case, there's really no benefit to it other than "it's fun to kill people and rip their faces off."  For that matter, since most gear covers up all the relevant undead bits anyway, the mask's disguise powers really don't help you unless you particularly want to use the target race's special traits for a minute.


Oh definitely.  Basically, some racists you can race switch to get favorable dialogue (or quest chains like the shrine in the woods in the second area) but mostly I switch to elf to eat some body parts (which barely drop anymore once you get past fort joy) for a few bits of "memories".  Haven't gotten a skill from them in ages.

But it sorta makes me have a check on my character.  I literally have 30 strength as a complete caster because ~170 of my 260 equip load is literally faces.

I found it most disappointing when I found out you didn't even have to cover up the entire face (such as with the bucket helmets) to present as "human".  I'm wearing a freaking hood.  My entire skull face is showing, but only when I pull back my hood people are like OMG UNDEAD.

Which I also thought would be way more fun than it is.  It's impossible to chase and attack NPCs that are bolting for the exit in this game, because you have to stop to attack and can't swing on the run, and if the target is moving you pretty much are guaranteed to miss.  Which farks with me all the time when im sneak attack poking lookouts to make them "chase me" to arrest my ass before I kill him away from his friends.

I'm diving into Destiny 2's Crucible for the first time. I'm not really much of a competitive PVP player in general, I much prefer coop play, but it's been more fun than I suspected it would be. I'm not spectacular or anything, but I'm holding my own despite apparently being the only person to not use the MIDA.

As for old games, I'm finally getting around to completing Anachronox. I've had it since release, and it should probably be counted as a mortal sin to have not finished it. Grabbed the GoG copy, because they are motherfarking compatibility wizards, and installed on my Surface last night.

GhostfacedFiddlah: shortymac: GhostfacedFiddlah: Panic!  PANIC!  I'm DMing my first game in decades in a full-day adventure on Sunday.  I'm running a homegrown campaign, and I'm nowhere near ready.  My mind is chock-full of D&D rules, gods and cosmology, not to mention the map, encounters, and characters of the first adventure.   I ... may have overextended myself.

The campaign's heavy on universe-mechanics (a wizard tries to understand the gods scientifically), so I've been cramming like crazy.

I also bought a few minis and I'm really happy with the results.  I've got a beholder (zombie) to scare the shiat out of the PCs, and a glabrezu as the Big Bad.  When the party first sees it, it's battling a halfling, with both of them locked in stasis.  The scale of the models is exactly what I wanted, with the glabrezu towering over the halfling, almost 3x the height.

2 more days and still so much prep to do.  Wish me luck.

Step one: Breathe!
Step two: Get a rough outline of where you want the part to good with hooks and the like, but have a few back up options as well.
Step three: You don't have to be perfect, all DMs make mistakes and forget rules occasionally, just be fair.
Step four: Don't be afraid to steal, modify some AL and DMs Guild modules for your campaign, especially in the beginning.

Good advice.  I read similar advice in The Lazy DM: Re-skin existing creatures as something unique.  I wanted to create a creepy vibe, so I'm including some "Scuttlers", which are large fleshy crabs with humanoid faces.  But I'm just using the stats from Giant Centipedes rather than try to roll my own monsters.


I played for a while with a group of gamers that weren't particularly well-read. I just lifted most of Elric's adventures straight from the books. I replaced Arioch with a combination of Q and Lo Pan. Good times.

Still playing Terraria. had to start a new save because I factory reset my laptop and forgot to upload the characters to the cloud. i'm at the beginning of hardmode on a medium world. got some leaf wings and just unlocked the steampunker. going to play around with teleporters tonight.

might pick up golf story on the switch. i'm intrigued.

Updated (and free!) version of StarCraft?  That was a blast with local friends back in the day.  Classic RTS.  And you can set up matches with the two of you vs multiple AI opponents, all sorts of maps.

... Well why wouldn't you use the Mida? It's bad ass.

That being said, Namless Midnight is a good cruible weapon. "Uriel's Gift" and "Martyr's Make" are the best kinetic weapons  for PvP..

doctorguilty: I finally tore the shrinkwrap off my copy of Skyrim Legendary Edition for my PS3. I've only just started, but it's been fun so far. I'm looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.


If it's anything like Oblivion on the PS3.....throw it in the trash and save yourself the frustration on waking up to all your 100+ hour savegames corrupted.

Anything Elder Scrolls or Fallout is best played on a PC.  Not for the PCMR 4K on Ultra settings bragging rights, but for the unofficial patches.  It's sad that every Bethesda game is so broken unofficial community patches are required to actually play and finish them.

I've bought Morrowind GOTY on Xbox and both Oblivion and Oblivion GOTY on PS3 and I've yet to beat any of them due to stupid bugs....random quests I don't even remember on Morrowind and Oblivion....save game corruptions on Oblivion GOTY.  I've beat every single one on PC with DLC thanks to unofficial patches....not gonna say beat without issues on PC, but I beat them.

Then there are all the mods and better graphics and graphics mods for even betterer graphics.....and yeah, the Xbox One mods don't count since we can't use most of the worth a shiat bug fixing mods or overhauls or things involving scripting or animations....

How is this one?  Still playing the first WH one occasionally;. have loved the series since the first Shogun TW.


Better in just about every way.  Runs a little chunky on my machine, but I expect that'll get cleaned up in a few weeks when some optimization patches land.

I'm playing Fallout 4 again, but with the Sim Settlements mod and a bunch of its add-ons. It turns settlement-building into a post-apocalyptic shantytown version of SimCity. It's a lot of fun, but there's still a mediocre RPG getting in the way of my city-building.

palelizard: Does anyone remember the game which used to advertise in Dragon magazine with art of a graffiti wall/alley saying "Always outnumbered, never outgunned"? There may have been a dead person on the ground kinda Borderlands looking and I think the game was cyberpunk-y/dystopian future. I cannot remember the name.

Also, scalpers have the SNES up to $180 on Amazon. People are assholes.


Honestly, sounds exactly like an ad for Shadowrun.

Lots of gaming this week. My contract ended with my work and even though my rep told me they could find me a job quickly, HR with my company only has 6 listings for jobs nationwide and all for coding which I don't do. So I'm living off severance and looking for a new place.

First up:  Elite Dangerous. Finally got back into it after a I rage quit after the Commander's update farked with Combat Zone difficulty. I don't enjoy getting ass raped by 30 NPCs all at once the moment you fire on a mission target. $5M insurance is hefty for that shiat. Found new enjoyment just doing surface scan missions and running Space Uber. Also I finally got around to changing my UI colors to purple, and I'm super happy about that.

Next: Everspace. Figure I can get my space combat on in another format with a story to it. I'm actually still early in the game and the story is kind of confusing, but that's what I should expect given that you are playing a clone with amnesia... It's fun as hell though.

Finally:  Divinity: Original Sin 2. I just got started with it really. I keep making some critical errors at really bad times and losing like, an hour of play because I can't remember to save enough. Still on the first island. Really liking it though.

Scout rifles just don't 'feel' right to me - it's a weapon group I don't seem get on that well with. Ditto with sniper rifles in most other games. I'm a lot more comfortable at mid-close range and with flanking (or suicide rushes if I'm with someone who can give cover fire), so SMGs, the handgun types, and autorifles fit a lot better.

I'm currently running Origin Story and Mida Mini with a War Rig for Crucible. It's great for breaking off and not worrying about stopping my sprint to reload. Really want to find the Peacekeeper legs so I can flip that loadout around and run Antiope/Uriel.

Well, let's be fair, Dead Man's Switch (the basic Shadowrun Returns) was just "pretty good."  It was pretty linear, party members were mostly personality-less hirelings, and there were very few chances to avoid combat.  The story was somewhat interesting, since it's a fairly major part of the Shadowrun lore, but not fantastic.

Dragonfall and Hong Kong, on the other hand, were phenomenal.  The devs definitely learned from their mistakes and audience feedback on the main game, and they build excellent Shadowrun experiences for the expansions/sequels.  Personally, I preferred Hong Kong over Dragonfall, but I can't recommend either one strongly enough.

Thanks for the warning. if a Mac version is out by now on Steam or someplace, I'll consider it, but otherwise I'll just stick with this. If I like it enough, I'll splurge on a PS4 or XB1 version instead.

Still playing Overwatch.  I have a lot of fun with mystery heroes.  But when I play deathmatch, I get a lot of grief for using Torb, and then wipe the floor with everyone.

Also playing Rimworld.  Beat the game with the astronauts, so decided to go with the 5 cave men at the start.  Only problem with that, is that any research that I do takes incredibly long times, since they are cave men, and are stupid.  Even though they have discovered electricity and solar panels.  Oh well.

Karac: The only thing I didn't like about Dungeon Hack was that, as a single character 2nd edition AD&D game, you were pretty much required to be multiclass. Cleric/Mage or Cleric/Mage/Fighter were the only viable options.


That's the major reason I chose Cleric/Mage lol.

I didn't trust the game not to starve me to death, give me undead/lycanthropes and no magical weapons, etc.

I figured if I took Cleric I'd eventually get "create food and water" and as a mage I can identify items without either a) savescumming or b) playing "let's see what this thing does, please don't be cursed". Plus Clerics can do Flame Blade and kill undead/lycanthropes that way.

(Yes, there's an exploit where you can throw any item and it'll damage even undead/lycanthropes but that's kind of cheesy).

Or for the people who really hated themselves, locked door on level X, lever to toggle it open or closed on level Y.


Hehe. I do appreciate that it gives you so many options to play with.

Trying to decide what is next. I'm VERY tempted to put Skyrim back on the computer and play the enhanced version. dunno.

You might get the original version to work under Wine, but the Special Edition likely won't work anytime soon (DX9 vs DX11).

XB1 version hands down, and that's coming from a person that prefers Playstation in the console department.  At least it has mods and there are some XB1 specific community bug-fix mods.  Sony sucks this generation.  Sony is basically the reason we don't have cross console and PC games this console generation....MS is all "fark yeah" about PC and console multiplayer games working with each other whereas Sony is playing the "but the children" card....

FWIW, a $120 GPU with 2GB of VRAM (RX 560/GTX 1050ti) will run Skyrim & SE good enough.  Not 1080p ultra, but my 2013 R7 260x does either on Windows 10 with mixed high/ultra/medium with low shadows for 40-60 fps @ 1080p (with dual Intel x5687s, 3.6ghz Westmere, and 48GB 1333 ECC-DDR3).  The 560 is the 2017 version of my 260x; the 560 should have better results.

I'm able to run regular Skyrim on Linux/Wine at similar speeds using the gallium-nine settings (only available for AMD cards on custom Wine compiles).  Some DX9 games actually run faster and smoother on Linux these days with AMD cards and gallium nine.  It's crazy.

I stopped by Target on my lunch break for an errand and swung through to see if there were any SNES classic systems (just to see the hype).  They still had quite a few left.  It wasn't as crazy as the Wii or NES classic.

I'll pick one up, eventually, because of Starfox 2.

GRCooper: colonel0sanders: Petey4335: GRCooper: Still computerless for the next week and a half, so living vicariously through forums about the big Elite Dangerous update.

Any of you E:D guys been blowed up by Thargoids yet?

No.  But I am 2000 LY away from home, on my way to 3 lonely little neutron stars I found while searching for them.  They are not all that near to any nebula or other points of interests.  I have about 10 more hops to go to the first one and I haven't seen a claimed system in the last 10.  I may be able to claim then?

I have only been able to play about 2 or 3 hours of the update. What has changed from exploring (at least on the PS4)
-Unexplored / unpopulated systems come up as anarchy instead low security/clean now.
-I saw that there was something to do with salvage in the release notes.  So I stopped and checked the random 'unidentified signal' that pops up.  Data caches are no longer illegal.
-I will stop for more of them.  Maybe with an update, I'll get a random Thargoids encounter? Which would suck way out in deep space.  I probably have about 40 mil in exploration data saved up at this point. I have gotten really good at cool down/activate/boost/re-enter FS from the times I had a few painite from a mining run, though.  So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Wife and all my kids are busy and gone this weekend.  Not busy as in I have to do stuff, but I'm still home.  They are gone gone. I have been working mostly from just before 7am until 10 or 11pm every night this week.  I am taking time for me when I am done with work today.... and hopefully tomorrow.  And stocking up on some libations, because drinkin' and explorin' is so much fun.

/I'd say cue the pietasters, but that is probably a little obscure for most.

I haven't checked, but didn't they change the route plotting limit from 1000Ly to 20000Ly?  That would be a really nice change for exploring.

I did read something about that. The bit I read said 25k, plus some new features (it'll show you last scoopable star based on your current fuel load, you can have the route plotter factor neutron stars/jumps, etc). Sounds like a great update


I checked - you're right, it's 20k.

If anyone's looking for fast cash, head to the E:D Reddit. Top story is about how to make a boatload running passengers out of Rhea (like hundreds of millions per hour in an Anaconda)

It's so little...

I somehow missed the CK2 sale last week, which is a bummer, I was waiting for that to go on sale, I guess I'll just have to wait a little longer.

I was recently given Horizon Zero Dawn and I'm about 4 hours into that now.  It's a good game and I'm enjoying it, haven't done too much, I've spent all of my time so far in the beginning area killing machines and selling their parts, I should probably progress the story eventually, I don't know how well the enemies will scale if I stay too long, right now it just seems to be spawning more Scrappers than earlier.

My son enjoys playing Beach Buggy Racing on the PS4, so I've been destroying him in that lately, he has to learn how to lose gracefully, doesn't build any character to let him win, plus it makes me feel good to beat a small child at video games.

Space Station Wagon: I wish I kept my copies of Battle for Middle Earth 1 & 2. I can't believe they aren't on steam.


Nor will they ever be. When the LotR movies came out, it was produced by New Line Pictures, and EA got the game license. However, once New Line officially merged with Warner Brothers, who sees themselves not as a movie studio but a media conglomerate, they snatched the rights from EA so they could make games using their own studios. So unless EA and WB somehow make a deal to bring back their old games, they are just yet another sacrifice to the IP gods.

ZephyrHawk: Thanks Subby for giving me the idea for my next DnD one shot.


Put a "recycling plant" next to it with a rust monster in it. ;)

"We recycle all metal!"

I actually remember the first game I played on a C64. Darkman - which was actually pretty damn good for a game based a movie. Especially at the time.
