Stellaris, running a 'normal' robo collective
Threw in with some Determined Eradicators early, but their ineptitude at war held us up against a wall of organics who didn't want to become robochow

But...just got my first War in Heaven to start

And my empire is right between the two
So tonight I'm breaking my federation and hoping I can survive long enough to get in with the squishies in making a stand

Love this game

Also picked up Transistor on sale last weekend, about an hour in and quite enjoying it, I'll have some free time next weekend and looking to run to completion

Vladof Gaige was neglected a little bit, farming for my next Peak run hit a wall, but a friend happened across 2 of the 3 pieces of kit on my list so that adventure will resume soon

Some of my favorite mods include Synergies for Torchlight 2, and the filterable Unofficial Community Patch for BL2.
Having build variety return to OP levels is divine, and being able to adjust some of the overbalancing by the authors lets me not feel guilty

DragonIV: some new stuff (Heat Signature)


This game consumed a lot of time for me, but it's a damned blast and the steam friends popping into your game is kind of neat. One of my friends found a self charging, rechargeable slip stream (basically infinite bullet time, for those unfamiliar). He tells me about it, my jealousy increases, and the next day I find it in my game as a drop.  With a character that had a silenced auto-rifle. I think I picked up 346 kills, 13 KOs (all capture missions), and no living witnesses before I retired her because she was only getting 4% liberation.

I'm thinking of getting Cuphead once I get paid again (I'm kid-broke). Anyone played it yet? Yea? Nay? It looks gorgeous and tough as nails.

I'm starting to get burnt out on Overwatch, I might pick DooM back up just for a change of pace. I'd like to get into The Witcher III but I just don't have the time for games that take that long anymore.

Still playing Samus Returns. I think that I have maybe 15 metroids left to find.
I'm stuck on the third section of a timed boss fight at the moment, and it's kicking my ass. Gonna attempt it again today on my lunch break and see if I can knock it out. When I have trouble with a boss, I usually will set it down for a day and then come back and beat it within the first couple tries.  Also picked up NES Remix and have been working through that. It's a cool little ADD satisfying diversion if I don't have a whole lot of time to play.

Console wise, I picked up the Wolfenstein games and am working through the first levels of New Order currently. Pretty fun so far, although I find myself wanting to apply Doom's run & gun method of play to it (maybe I need to just go back and play through Doom again).

Every once and a while I do enjoy chilling out and playing No Man's Sky for a bit. Still working on the base set up missions. Trying to hire on a Gek to manage farming/agriculture. Trying to save up for a new ship. I also really need to find a new multitool, but it seems like they've reduced the frequency in which you find them. At launch, it seemed like I found new ones at almost every outpost, but since the update they are few and far between.

I wanted to pick up Forza 7 but everything I've read makes me want to hold off. I've paid for the VIP since F3 but with their decision to nerf it (I know they've come around on that), and the changes they've made to game progression (No more credit boost for using fewer driver nannys, hundreds of cars locked behind an exclusive content wall that ushers you to buy loot boxes to open them). I don't think I want to reward them any longer. I hate this move to microtransact the shiat out of everything.

Ehh... Maybe I'll just go back to playing Mario World on SNES.

Won't take long. I think my first play through was under ten hours.  It's such a pretty game.

Ive been on a real military kick. Just finished Call of Duty Ghost cause it came with my Xbox. Any other lesser known military shooters? I only play single player.

Dimensio: Two more game mods that I highly recommend:

Nehrim: At Fate's Edge, a mod for Oblivion.
Enderal: The Shards of Order, a mod for Skyrim.


I can't recommend Enderal enough.  It's just stunning- the main plot and side missions are just better than Skyrim itself all the way around.  Five minutes into the game you're going to be sitting there with a "WTF JUST HAPPENED?" expression on your face

/Off to get a nice crispy piece of meat.

Dimensio: Joe Satin: I've finally given up GTA 5 after a couple years of enjoyment. I think rockstar has killed the game purposely with all the dlc that you have to constantly grind for and I will not buy shark cards. So, I have to find another game now.

I am still waiting for the new single-player content that Rockstar promised in 2013.

Any day now!


I watch Funhaus videos of GTA 5 unline antics from time to time. I would like to thank them personally for reminding me why I never reinstalled after the HDD holocaust.

Divinity Original Sin 2 is currently owning my down time.

xalres: I'm starting to get burnt out on Overwatch


I'd recommend you take a look at two games: Gigantic and Battlerite. The former is closer to Overwatch, in terms of pace, but with more strategic elements (map control and Guardian management is critical).  The latter is a top down battle arena, but much more tactical and plays almost like a fighting game.

Got into to the Total War Arena beta - multiplayer 10v10 total war battles with your standard free to play earn xp / credits to tech up your commanders and units grind.

Each player gets control of 3 units, only played a couple battles but feels like something that is really going to benefit from playing with a couple friends because finding yourself outnumbered 9 to 3 right off the bat means you're not going to have a good battle.

Also, I think Mashinky is available today on steam, looks like a faithful entry into the transport tycoon / railroad tycoon so I'll probably give that a try this weekend.
 
2017-10-06 09:47:23 AM  
Still Fallout 4 and FF14. (Speaking, if anybody wants a recruitment code for some bonus xp stuff, lemme know.) Some STO.

I'm kind of craving Civ 5 again, though, so I might install that at some point.

xalres: Holy crow! I didn't know the Gunpoint guys made another one! WAAAAAAANT!


Yup. It's well worth the money. Kind of a gunpoint/hotline Miami/Monaco love child.  You'll love the first time you concussion hammer your capture target through a window into space, then remotely fly your pod to pick him up.

Or when your personal mission is to assassinate the guy who killed your brother, so you hijack another ship and shoot his engines out, rip his entire ship in half with missiles, then slowly float by the wreckage to watch him asphyxiate in space.

Total War Warhammer II.  Beat a hard campaign as Mazdamundi and it was hard for sure.  I really like the changes to the game and the vortex campaign.  Not sure if I'm going to do another playthrough real soon.  Have to decide if I want to do Mazdamundi again or try Kroq Gar or play as rats.  I may wait until they add Norsca in and some more lords and races.  I like it when the map is full of factions.  I love this huge map but if I had a complaint, Id say it's thin on playable factions which of course will be fleshed out.

I took the advice of another Farker and sprang for Skyrim Special Edition for my XB1. What a difference - it went from "this looks pretty cool" to "DAMN." I'm already past the point I'd played on the PS3 version and looking forward to more.

In RPG news, I've restored my old Heavy Gear Web Site at Banzaidyne III Redux, and have been updating some of my Heavy Gear D6 work at Banzaidyne IV. Stop on by!

Finished Assassin's Creed on Tuesday (did everything but the flags....fark the flags).

Started Assassin's Creed 2 later that night and am still playing it.  Good game, probably the best of the AC series, but so obvious that it's a console port....the draw distances....and no ini/cfg tweaks to fix it....

Going to play Assassin's Creed 3 next unless I pick up the rest of the Ezio Collection before then.

I'll get Origins like I get every other AAA game that isn't online FPS -- a year later and at least half off with all the DLC bundled.  If there aren't multiplayer servers to go dead or I don't care to use the multiplayer features, I don't care when I buy a game.

At launch, it seemed like I found new ones at almost every outpost, but since the update they are few and far between.


I didn't have the cash to upgrade my multi-tool for a long time. Outposts always had some crazy expensive one that I couldn't afford and then one day I got a 24 slot one as a reward from some monolith or something. Of course the outposts started offering reasonable multi-tools afterwards that I no longer had any use for.

Non Sequitur Man: Apparently I've decided that I'm not pulling out enough hair from my head. I recently re-started playing Alundra on epsxe and Riven from the MYST series, I had to quit Alundra due to travel years ago, so I've rekindled my frustration. Whee.

While looking for a Diablo clone, discovered Torchlight 2 and have been spending waaaay too much time on that. If anyone could recommend a good hack-n-slash I'd be most thankful.


Might look at Grim Dawn if you haven't already. It got several play-throughs out of me. Think an expansion is about to drop as well.

I'm on my last run of FO4. I've apparently averaged more than 4 hr/day since release. To say I have no life/have a problem is probably an understatement. Good thing my wife still loves me.

This is Canadian Thanksgiving so I plan on finally getting around to uploading my Princes of the Apocalypse twitch streams to youtube and finishing the brotherhood quests in Skyrim!

Other than that my tabletop games are going well:

Princes of the Apocalypse: The gang finished the Howling Caves and killed Aerisi, the Evil Air Cult High Priestess. 2 prophets down, 2 to go. This is going to be fun. Since we're winding down this campaign I'm planning on playing Storm King's Thunder next.

Tomb of Annihilation: Played our first session last night and got to level 2 with my fighter Beatrix. Stole a Lich's phylactery to figure out what this death curse is all about. Heading to the Beatrix's husband homeland of Chult to investigate.

Derelict Sky: Husband's homebrew campaign. Still working out the rule system for this one because it's Era the Consortium and we're just playing through.

theresnothinglft: Found myself playing Planet's Edge on Archive on the train this week.  That one could use a remake.   That and finished the story for Guildwars 2 Path of Fire earlier this week.  I'm about out of things to do in Breath of the Wild before going and killing Ganon.


Always had a soft spot for Planet's Edge. There aren't enough Ultima-style games about getting into your spaceship and landing on planets. There was an old SSI one called Star Command. Craziest thing about Star Command was that it came with all these obsessively detailed weapons for the height of Jagged Alliance-style realism but then you couldn't move your guys separately, they had to huddle together in a clump that was either everyone hiding in a space jungle tile or not.

Smoking GNU: Oh, and for mods, i'ma assume you mean really big mods?


uproxx.files.wordpress.comView Full Size


I would like to remind everyone that a true mod MODIFIES the root game files, hence the name "modification", this means that the Sexy Girl mod for Counter-Strike is a mod of a mod, and that the Sexy Girls map for Warcraft III is NOT a mod, I say this as one of its original creators.

I write this because your implication seems to be that "mod" is determined by file size, when any long-time Usenet user would know better.

I've paid for the VIP since F3 but with their decision to nerf it (I know they've come around on that), and the changes they've made to game progression (No more credit boost for using fewer driver nannys, hundreds of cars locked behind an exclusive content wall that ushers you to buy loot boxes to open them). I don't think I want to reward them any longer. I hate this move to microtransact the shiat out of everything.


That times 7 trillion.

I'm also not a fan of 20 different pre-release editions of a game or pre-release DLC (that's just a slap in the face).  To combine those with microtransactions....well fark me running....

I imagine it will be the same with ships. Everything that it's throwing at me now is just out of my reach, far out of my reach, or equivalent to what I currently have. I'm just not finding what I want. I'll probably see the same thing you did with the multitool once I've finally acquired one.

Not a lot of gaming time this week.  It's mostly been Destiny 2 weekly stuff and finally diving back into Dragon Quest Builders.
 
2017-10-06 10:08:05 AM  

tdyak: My favorite mod of all time was BF1942 Mod: Desert Combat.  It brought the game into the modern era with tanks, jets, helicopters and everything.  Some of the people that played that mod would bring crazy expensive equipment (fancy joysticks, etc) to play with extreme accuracy.


I played a ton of DC, and yes, had a joystick for flying the helicopters. That was an incredible mod, and I don't think I played vanilla 1942 after it came out.

I've also been looking into the massive shiatfest that has been the release of Bethesda's "Creation Club"

1. time bomb for your HDD. *especially* if you're a space-challenged SSD player
2. it's the exact opposite of what they originally said it would be....it's poorly copied free mods that you have to pay for
3. Skyrims's are slightly less liquid ass than Fallout 4s, but only slightly. The ass is a thicker liquid, I guess
4. The charge cash money for the 'credits' for this crap, and upsell you on bundles THAT way, too

It's pretty much a double-fisted middle finger faceplant all the way around
 
2017-10-06 10:09:34 AM  

BumpInTheNight: Been replaying Mad Max, because there's something deeply cathartic about roaming the waste land in your awesome custom car with you crazy high priest of mechanus side-kick.

For anyone who still hasn't bought it:  Its not replaying the events of the recent movie or any of them but its set in the same world/local region and from my understanding its pre-last-movie.  Imorten Joe's son is the main nemesis in this one and mentions like bullet farm and gas town are liberal.  Its atmosphere is dead-true to the series, pretty damn dark themes and a lot of rich content in there.    Extremely well done game world too, the region you start in is somewhere off the coast of Australia where the ocean used to be so most of the forts and bases are all rusted out ship-wrecks and such.  Game play wise picture a typical assassin's creed type open world divided into zones of control with a scattering of common activities across them.  There's a main story to follow and a couple side-quest type things but its pretty open to just picking a target and going for it.  One of your secondary objectives is to build up the local warlords' bases but weakening Scrotus's(son of Joe) hold over the region by whacking his bases, taking out his convoys and generally killing every war boy you run into.

Car combat is brutal but your priest-mechanic will repair your car infinitely between fights and even if you get into a bad spot you can hop out and deal with things while he brings the car back to life.

Ground combat is very assassin's creed style where you are one vs many, you are typically just using your fists to punch the crap out of war boys and other dessert evils.  You have a shotgun and knives but they're more for special situations, ammo while not exactly scarce isn't plentiful enough to just shoot your way through encounters.

I found it played better with the xbox controller then keyboard, specifically for the driving part.

I also just bought a sweet new 34" ultra wide that arrived yester ...


I really enjoyed this game.

It is also the only game I have rage quit and will not finish.  The Stank Gum race towards the end in the city was impossible for me to win. Not sure how much of that is due to keyboard/mouse or my play style.  The close confines were just too difficult for me to maneuver (had the correct light vehicle load out, everything upgraded).

The PS2 I picked up is working quite nicely, and I've been spending a my spare time loading games onto it. I should have picked up a 320GB drive for it (and probably will now, considering IDE drives are just going to get harder to find) but I wasn't even sure the damn thing would even work. 250GB will have to do for now. There's a few games I've had serious cravings for that I want to get back to, and still a few more that I never found time to play, but mostly the farker's going to end up being a Burnout 3 machine oh god yes.

I don't really ever go for mods that significantly change gameplay, so the only one I can think to put up would be Brutal Doom. My Oblivion and FO3 modding pretty much stuck to visual overhauls and bugfixing. Much older games usually get things like engine overhauls to up visual fidelity and basic QoL improvements like Zandronum, Darkplaces, whatever Quake 2 has now. PCSXR-PGXP also gets mention for taking Playstation games and (mostly) fixing all the weird visual bugs due to the limitations of the original hardware. No more wiggly-jiggly textures and polygons.

Summercat: Ive been playing that DnD idle game.

I don't know why.

Been working on recoding an old browser based strategy game from 1999-2004 called Shattered Empires. Hope to have something to show for it in a month or so.


A browser version of Twilight Imperium?  You have my attention.
 
2017-10-06 10:20:34 AM  
Gave up on Fallout 4 for a second time. I like some of the things they've done, like the power armor change, but the game just leaves me cold. I feel the need to find somewhere cozy to move into, and this game just doesn't have it. Home Plate is utter shiate, and trying to turn a settlement into a base is just isn't doing it for me.

Also gave up on Borderlands 2. Was having a fun Maya Cataclysm run for the first time, but every time I have a playthrough, I'm reminded of my two biggest bugbears with this game. I find it too long for a loot, multiple difficulty game, and those damn repeat visits to areas. Defeat Flynt. Then let's do it all over again just to burn a midget. It sucks the life out of me. Maybe I'm just in a gaming rut at the mo.

Did start Unreal World and Sunless Seas, though. And dipped into my GOG list of shame and started Dark Falls. There are noises, and floorboards creaking.
 
2017-10-06 10:28:45 AM  
Oh, mods.
ENBoost to cap my FPS at 72 since FO4's engine freaks out any higher than that.
House fixes for Croup Manor, Kingsport Lighthouse, Taffington Boathouse and Egret Tours Marina
Reshade\SweetFX for better image
Some outfit packs
CBBE and BodySlide
Ballistic Armor without Railroad
Skip raiding of settlements for Nuka World
Dogmeat's armor
Expanded Ballistic Armor
Several others I'm forgetting.

I've tweaked what I can but I'm still fighting the low-res texture bug (thought ENB was supposed to help with that) and the occasional CTD when exiting buildings. Figure it's one of my mods but haven't wanted to spend the time to hunt it down.
 
2017-10-06 10:29:47 AM  
Since someone mentioned mod size above, one of my favs is a tiny little mod for Skyrim called Wet and Cold. All it really does is add some extra AI behaviour and visual effects depending on the weather, like visible breath and NPCs putting on hoods etc when it's snowing. It adds an incredible amount of atmosphere to the game, and I can't really play without it, anymore.

Glad to see the Script Extender and SkyUI  for the SE are in alpha, at last.

Burnt out from the burn-outs "burning" you?


Yeah, kinda. Getting into a match where the people not only have their headsets plugged in, but actually USE them to coordinate is rare. Getting into a match where folks will actually switch to what''s needed instead of sticking to their "main" is even rarer. So I've just been playing deathmatch and mystery heroes for the most part.

Ah, no. Shattered Empires was a mapless post-apoc strategy game more akin to Civilization 2, but with some SMAC style unit design. Combat was abstracted and you could only attack a nation to take a city.

What made it work was major mechanical changes depending on your government and economy, and a robust roleplaying on the forum.

It was written in Perl. I've got a partial codebase and enough to make educated guess where I'm missing data. Rewriting it in Python and Flask.

A Twilight Imperium clone online might be more than I can do.

It adds an incredible amount of atmosphere to the game, and I can't really play without it, anymore.

Thanks, I'll put this on my list. It would have really added a lot to Bleak Falls Barrow.
Any other "atmosphere" mods like that? I know someone mentioned a set of mods that turned Skyrim into a horror game - fog on the ground, dampened sound so wilderness encounters are more of a surprise, etc.

Been random stuff for me lately. Mainly rocking out with Trackmania: Turbo and Disc Jam the last few nights. Fired KSP back up. Failing miserably at the PU:BG clone mode for Fortnite. Finally playing MGS5 since it's a PS+ freebie this month. Likely stick with it for a while, enjoyable so far.

Mods? JHS map for DF2:JK back in the day, any graphic and 'cheat home' mod for Elder Scrolls/FallOut.

cant believe i actually grinded 50 Loyce Souls for the Soul of Alhanna. the jump from 35 souls to 50 is mindnumbingly irritating with very few players still summoning help, even with all the item-find bonus gear. i turned her soul in for Eleum Loyce but i was so tired i havent tested it yet. i have enough Petrified Dragonbone to upgrade it i think. he's lvl 206 after blowing a lot of the souls (couple million in the time it took to get from 10 loyce souls to 50) but now its done i wont do it again.

Dimensio: SonsoftheSod: Gave up on Fallout 4 for a second time. I like some of the things they've done, like the power armor change, but the game just leaves me cold. I feel the need to find somewhere cozy to move into, and this game just doesn't have it. Home Plate is utter shiate, and trying to turn a settlement into a base is just isn't doing it for me.

You just need to find the right settlement crafting mods that will let you build nice places:

A house in Sanctuary:

It looks fantastic. I simply don't have that kind of patience. I also only have the game on xbone, so I can't imagine doing that with a controller and not a k & m (not to mention I probably can't get those mods on a console).
