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:

[lotsa images]


Heh, nice.

This run, I've been aiming for a mix of Canadian rustic (log cabins, 'soddys'), japanese-style(ish) rock gardens for home courtyards, and Victorian-era London for my architecture. Heavy use of console shenanigans for micropositionning or offsetting wall parts, double-placing objects (the first floor windows on the Jun and Marcy Long's house (image 3) require four overlapping 'parts' per wall section). The roof has overlapping sections, too. They're meticulous to build, and I occasionally break the nav-meshing for an area, but I think the results are well worth it.

Most of the major settlement-construction mods are involved in these images, although not necessarily all up to date. Diamond City, eat your hearts out.

KingBiefWhistle: The Department of Inadvisably Applied Magic: After repeatedly telling myself I had no interest in getting involved with another MMO, I decided to try Tera. 46 levels later I'm playing an MMO again. F*ck.

Tera? Someone got hooked due to Elin. Don't lie, son


Nah, both my characters are Castanic. Female Castanic with revealing costumes and breasts that move independently of each other, but at least they aren't lolis.

Lizara: hammer85: So I guess I'll ask this here.  My wife is trying to play a game with me, and we're trying to find out which.  She doesn't want too much blood/killing (hilariously she tried saying she heard borderlands 2 was a good one to play) and she enjoyed castle crashers and to a lesser extent the lego batman games.

I've been thinking about cuphead but I heard that's supposed to be on the harder side.

She also says she likes racing games.

Can be on either PC or ps4

SpeedRunner, maybe?

My husband and I played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and were annoyed with each other within about ten minutes, so YMMV with that one. I liked the concept, but there was no way to play without sharing a single keyboard, and that's pretty much a recipe for disaster.


I played Lovers with 2 controllers.  Didn't have to share a keyboard at all.

But yeah, +1 for SpeedRunners.  Best description I can come up with is it's Mario Kart for Platformers.

[uproxx.files.wordpress.com image 650x354]

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 sent him one death threat a day telling him to fix his Breath of the Wild score.

He took the coward's way out by getting a restraining order, instead.

grumpfuff: How is Warframe? I heard about it and gave it a shot. Played a few hours, got a little further than that first "boss." I really do like it but as I've been getting further I have the impending sense of a huge grind, and I'm not really looking for that right now.


Warframe is great.  It can be a grindy at times if you want to get absolutely everything.  There is a pretty big learning curve and grind especially at the start, but then it gets into a nice groove.  Once you get everything figured out there is always something to do, but not much neccessary to do.

Its worth throwing in a few bucks if you are enjoying yourself after 20 or 30 hours.  It gets you past the 'hump' and into the sweet spot a bit quicker.  Buy some Orokin Catalysts and Reactors, and some weapon and warframe slots.  Then have fun opening planets, doing quests and getting new weapons and warframes.  Its pretty easy to make in game currency once you get to the mid game, and there is a lot of content and things to do.

The new expansion coming next could be amazing and bring this game to the next level too.

Smoking GNU: grumpfuff: Smoking GNU: Freelancer

I haven't heard that name in years. I got a demo of it in PC Gamer when it first came out. I was sorting through my demo CDs in a final clean out, so I gave everything a shot. Freelancer is amazing. I've been trying to get it ever since, but every time I have money to burn I forget to look for it. Unfortunately, it's not on Steam, and that's where I buy most of my games.

Thanks though, you just reminded me of it and I put it on a small list I started for non-Steam stuff.

I don't think you can even buy it anymore. I bought a copy way back when.

And crossfire is an awesome mod for thad game. Adds tons more systems and ships and equipment. And a ton more missions in a really extended single player addition. Although the whole mod is mostly geared towards multiplayer, for which there's still a pretty big community.

I'm hoping you're also familiar with starlancer. Freelancers' prequel.


Crossfire is awesome, but watch the 3X cruise speed increase, there is one mission where you have to race and that always farked me up.

But I'm a shiatty racer, so there is that.

Please explain.


The original implementation of the Creation Club pushed out the entire collection of paid mods mini-DLCs to the player's computer/console and then the system would unlock the ones for which the end-user paid credits. This resulted in the initial rollout of CC for Fallout 4 bloating up the game's installation by several gigabytes for crap that, for most gamers, will be completely unused.

I have read that this system has been fixed in some way, but I do not know if the fix actually eliminates all CC pre-pushes or if it even removes the pre-pushed CC content already vomited up onto gaming systems at the initial launch.

All of this. Don't buy weapons or Frames with platinum. Only buy reactors/catalysts/slots. Take your time and have fun, you'll be able to explore the daytime Plains after completing Vor's prize.

Ok, so the damage has already been done, I take it.  Was worried that by signing in to CC, I committed myself to a punch in my SSDs nads.  Or that future nad-punching was imminent.

This mod supposedly cleans up the mess made by the CC push by replacing all of the CC-related files with tiny dummy files (as long as you choose to overwrite when the Nexus Mod Manager installs it).

I only use an SSD for my OS install, with my games on a standard 2TB drive, so I do not have the space issues that others might encounter but I still do not appreciate a game installation being unnecessarily bloated up.

Stands With A Tiny Fist: 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.


I started playing CIV V again. After a thousand or so hours in Civ IV, I've discovered I'm not good at Civ V at all. The city states angry up my blood, kill my trespassing dudes, then I have to get all "Blame the Maine on Spain" at them.

Ahaha.  Took out the last semi-legit empire in Stellaris, a fanatical purifier who could barely muster 20k fleet power to my 8 40k stacks.  One planet rebelled.  I was like, eh, whatever he wont do anything alone.  Get the message that he's formed a non-aggression pact, I'm like...wut?  Take a look...the rebellious planet is the same race, but Federation Builder government.  Suddenly 'death to all xenos' doesn't seem so hot, eh?  Works for me still, fleshbag.

I should also add that the wiki is your best friend when you are starting out.  Some of the systems and terminology can be a bit obtuse, and the wiki helps a TON.
http://warframe.wikia.com/wiki/WARFRAME_Wiki

Also, the warframe community is generally the least toxic and most helpful I've seen.  Many clans are always looking for players, and they can help a lot.  Friendly clanmates can often help you out with free mods and stuff, and that helps cut the grind down a lot too.

Make nice with the city-states, then they will allow your military units to trespass without penalty.  Also allow your units to heal as if in home territory.  Or attack them and steal their city/resources.

For those of you who aren't aware, in the course of releasing StarCraft Remastered, Blizzard has managed to render StarCraft entirely unplayable in an online setting, and it looks like they pushed their weight around to get the largest remaining private server shut down, which was running on an older, stable patch.

All these farkheads had to do was release the StarCraft equivalent of Age of Empires HD Edition and they didn't do it.  But thank God for all of us that StarCraft is in Early Access.  We need to give it time.  It will be here in time for summer of 1998.


lolwat. I was going to pick up a copy since I've had issues getting classic BW to run on a modern PC but as the scatologist said after the chimpanzee study, this shiat is bananas.

Tried to get Freespace to run but I think I'm going to have to bust out VMWare again. At least Alpha Centauri still loves me :(

Got the chance to play around with one of the VR backpack computers from work. Really nice, I think I might pick up one if I get a bonus this year. It wasn't using a Rift or Vive, it was one of those MS hololens-based HMDs. I like not being tethered to a desk and it even traced out the room for me and threw up boundary boxes when I got too close to the walls.

Actually, the CC may have already cleaned up its mess. I just installed that mod and it did not seem to reduce my HD usage by anything.

Yeah, I got them for the price point, and have been delighted to see that all the website reviews describe them as "best headphones for streaming" unless I want to go for a pro setup with mixing boards and the like. Since I'm not a PewDiePie or Jim Farking Sterling Son type, I don't need pro kit.

I'm working my way through some random smaller games in my library. I'll be moving to a different town next Friday (as my wife got a job there) and will be temporarily unemployed until I find work, so I'll be doing lots of cleaning (both house and game libraries).

Favorite mods:
Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 BiG World mod (that combines both games into one, using the interface from 2)
The Civil War Restoration mod for Skyrim (adds in a bunch of cut civil war content and finishes some unfinished stuff, making it a lot more interactive)

Love Armada. I play as the Empire. Biggest thing I've found in the 4 or 5 games I've played is to take out as many Rebel fighter squadrons as possible early. Use the TIEs to harrass rebel cruisers before sending the Star Destroyers to finish the job.

Yesterday was THAC0 Thursday. We finally got to the cave of legend - the Wave Echo Cave. Supposedly the place is an awesome gold mine and it has lots of treasure and magic items in it. Anyway, we cleared out some bugbears and got to looking around when we encountered A drow named Nezznar. He wanted to talk, but we decided to fight instead of talk. He was holding a dwarf hostage, and we were a little worried that he might try to kill the dwarf, so I cast a Forceful Phantasm on him to try and distract him from the dwarf. He made his saving throw, but then my problem was solved when the Dwarf shapechanged back into a drow - which makes me think that it's actually a doppleganger like the last one that we killed but I digress. Party started hacking away at spiders and bugbears and it got really tight. There were a couple of times that we were pretty sure we were gonna wipe, but the very next round I cast scorching ray and crit once and hit on both of the other rays, so I basically just melted Nezznar into a molten pool of Drow remains. That got rid of the Faerie Fire spell that he had on us, and we were eventually able to kill everyone. Only one member of our party managed to not hit 0 hp during that fight - fortunately we had several healing potions to keep us going in the event that someone cratered. After the fight, we called it a night.

I've been playing a lot of Skyrim the last couple of weeks. My character is up to around level 63 or so. I have made pickpocketing a legendary skill twice now. I've gone legendary on archery, stealth, and smithing once. On this run through the only DLC content that I've messed with at all is Hearthfire, and I only just joined the Companions, which is unusual. I haven't started on the civil war yet, though I plan on joining the Imperials.

I've done some background research, and I feel like the Stormcloaks just don't understand some of the nuance that's going on right now. While Talos is definitely a deity, the continued worship of that deity poses a strategic threat - not just to the Empire in Cyrodil, but to all of Skyrim. The best strategic decision is to be lax on enforcing the White-Gold Concordat and let people practice in secret while you bide your time to eventually beat up the Aldmeri Dominion. If Talos wanted to be worshiped publicly rather than secretly he should have showed up to beat on the Elves. Also, I don't like the Third Reich vibe that I get from Ulfric.

I've been sticking with the Empire myself. I want to play in a tournament, an entry level one, just to make sure I've got the rules right. But ain't nobody playing Armada in Nashville. Lots of X-Wing miniatures players at comic shops, though.

Just as an FYI. A few weeks back, I was looking for a name for a character in Book 6 of my series when I happened to wander through a previous iteration of this thread.

"Thaco" was subsequently christened.  Thanks ;-)

DOOM 2 via GZDoom, Mass Effect: Andromeda (holy shiat, it's beautiful), Homefront: Revolution. Planning to play something co-op this weekend, don't know what yet though. Maybe play a bit of Steel Ocean or War Thunder.

Trying to start enjoying Endless Space 2.

Unfortunately, I think what I wanted was a 'blowy up space armada' game, and what I got was a 'balance the political preferences of various ethnic groups' game.

I'm getting better - as what I mostly want to do is build and fight, and the Empire has a preference for building and fighting.  There's still a few aspects of fleet combat that I seem to be screwing up though, as I had a seriously overpowered Battleship get taken out by a much weaker (on paper) enemy fleet.  Also the game penalizes you for going over a set number of colonies - which is a problem when you conquer enemy colonies.

The game clearly has a ton of depth.  I'm just not sure I personally have enough depth to really enjoy it.

THAY-co or THACK-OH?

PickledBoodah: Cthulhukefka: I loved this game, right up until a certain race near the end where I rage-quit after gods know how many attempts.

Yup


Add me to the list

That's for the guy who does the audiobook to worry about :-)

Does a save editor count as a mod? Because my favorite is the gibbed editor for Borderlands games. I like beating the game legit with the vault hunters that interest me, then make a lvl1 person of the others and mod them with max level, legendary gear and infinite ammo. Modded makes replays more fun especially when I get online. If I didn't already have a god complex, I would get one with all the people who give me friend requests or beg for weapon drops.
