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.

GhostfacedFiddlah: Slightly less panic this week.  Ran my first DM session last Sunday and it was incredible.  Got halfway through the planned adventure, which was a surprise, because I was worried I didn't have enough material. Never underestimate your players' abilities to overturn every rock looking for clues and treasure.

And speaking of players, I had no idea how much fun it would be to watch them ruin my plans.  Underground cavern filled with mysterious places and people?  They cut right through to the heart of the matter by casting Speak With Animals and bribing a rothe with delicious moss.  Epic cliffside battle fending off swarms of giant bats, with swarms of critters waiting up top?  The wizard flew to the top of the cliff and fireballed half the mobs.

I'm going to have to rebalance for the next half, because no matter what I throw at them, they come up with a creative solution that makes it look easy.


Just had a session last night.

We came up on some NPC that was sick.  We got a good medicine check and figured that he had eaten something bad and would be okay if we could get him to throw up.  So my teammates start looking though their inventory to see what they've got that would do that, and I start browsing my spell list.

Me: "I think I picked up stinking cloud.  Did I get stinking cloud?  And does it still work the same way it did in the gold box games where if someone failed the save it said they stood there retching?"

The Ranger (irl a paramedic): "I've got a medicine pouch, but none of these things will actually make a person throw up.  Wait a minute: I picked up a spice rack somewhere!  Does it have ... yes!"

Result: we made a sick guy puke by giving him the cinnamon challenge.

In the last week?  Bits and pieces of Tekken 7, Uncharted: Lost Legacy, Gundam Versus, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Titanfall 2.

Recent developments have confirmed that I pretty much suck at videogames now.  Gotta get back in the gym and start doing the wrist curls.

Three sets of five for maximum grip strength.  This is what it means to be a hardcore gamer.

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


uproxx.files.wordpress.com

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.

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.

THAY-co or THACK-OH?

SonsoftheSod: 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.


That's the neat kinda immersion shiat I like getting. FO3 has that mod to remove the green tinge, or the one to add a shiatload more period music to GNR. Oblivion has stuff like Natural Environments (adds a whole bunch of dynamic weather) or Illumination Within (occupied buildings will have lit windows; windows will dynamically darken depending on the sleep schedules of the people inside) or Book Jackets, which pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin, making the various books visually identifiable. It also has a dumb little mod to drop in Patrick Stewart and Sean Bean heads onto their respective characters.

My 15 year old daughter and I have been cruising through Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 and all the DLC this week. My son and I blew through these when he was the age she is now. She has been playing games for a while but this is her first FPS with some horror/gore involved. She'd been standoffish up till now but has embraced it with a passion. I have enjoyed watching her play and how she plays identical to her brother in everything down to the character she plays and her preferred load out. He is coming over tomorrow for dinner and I am putting them on together to watch them fight over it all.

TheotherMIguy: 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:

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.
