I'unno.

The game does a dozen different things that wouldn't be too confusing on their own, but put together are so disorientating. For instance, there are 20+ tutorial videos, which is a bit rubbish, but whatever, but then trying to watch them with the intense, ambient drone rock that makes up the soundtrack is a bit too much. Then everyone talks to you like a N64 character for good measure.

Brilliant game but it's basically what happens when you trap a bunch of French veteran modders in a room with too much speed. They based the game off a tabletop RPG system that doesn't exist.

It's absolutely fucking mental and the game struggles to tell you anything. You can hack into everything: enemies, yourself, co-op partners. You can go insane and start halucinating enemies and it'll stop you using your weapons. You can teleport inside enemies and make them explode. You can have 64 players on a mission.

The story is insane, the translation is so bad I thought a dialog option with a random npc was a joke but it ended up adding in optional levels and changing the endgame drastically.

Going off my crap memory one of genes is simply better than the others so you just use it for all three slots; can't remember if it's because one of the stats it is weak on is pointless or if you have a reasonable chance of a roll that'll give you really high stats.

The visuals are very memorable and unique*, from the colourful guns and enemies to the beautiful sky boxes, you've got a quality campaign (at least until 4) and the multiplayer is probably the most fleshed out I've known in an FPS. Obviously it's all a matter of taste, but I also prefer the pace of the gunfights over Quake or Counter Strike, which were always 2fast4me even before I hit the e-sports retirement age I'm at now. But going back to how diverse the multiplayer can be, you could probably edit player speeds, health and weapon damage to have a Quake-like custom game mode quite easily, or just race ATVs, or get chased by an unkillable zombie ghost. Basically it can be anything you like, hopefully doubly so once it's on PC.

*Yes, I am aware they cribbed plenty of ideas also.

I played the first Halo recently for the first time since it came out, and I was surprised by how open it was. It has the reputation for the dumbing down of FPS games, but even early missions don't hold your hand with excessive way points like modern games have.

All of this. I remember the Halo series being the first games in a long, long time that really made me want to play through them on every difficulty and get all the achievements and all that. There's nothing that brings four hopeless nerds together like spending days or weeks trying to get the LASO achievements. The AI really helped with that, it wasn't just "more" enemies running at you, they were actively more aggressive.

More than anything else, the appeal of Halo to me was that I grew up with it. It's a game I could play in my room on my little 14" telly, I didn't have to borrow the family PC and sit in the living room and all of that, it was mine. Even if the games were shite I'd probably still have that feeling, but they also happened to be very good.

Halo is also the reason a lot of my online life exists, I have friends I made on Xbox live before it was even called Xbox live, that I still talk to today. I have friends from the Rooster Teeth and Machinima communities, both companies that simply wouldn't exist without Halo. It was a Big Deal for console gaming back then and that won't be forgotten easily by someone my age.

Halo CE being on PC, and able to run directly from a flash drive was excellent craic too. We used to just play each other in it in school/college computer labs when nobody was looking.

> "God, this reminds me of how much fun I had with UT back in the day!"
Same, that's why I've been replaying UT99 recently. Got to the DM-Phoboss, getting massively wrecked there.
I also have the GOTY edition which sadly has some decent DM maps replaced by some other ones that I like less.

Sort of want to play UT2004 again too. I have my reservations though, as I remember the 2004 was pretty intense too and somehow differently intense. For example, in UT99 the November Sub Pen CTF map had the most vicious combat situations right in the middle. In 2004, the middle seemed to be rather dead. There were more 'tension pockets' across the map, the overall pressure just wasn't there.
It also felt a bit more Quake-ish in general to me.

Thanks for the comments. Perhaps I'll find some time to try it if it really comes to PC.

For me it's comics. When I was a kid a comic was a treat, a small one but a treat nonetheless. You had to at least be good for half an hour first while you went around the supermarket with your mum.

For me it's online chess. I used to dream of the day when I'd be old enough to get the bus into town and play against good players every week. By the time I was old enough I had very much lost interest in chess, but now I'm a boring old man and I can play blitz against strong players at any hour of the day or night on my phone. If you'd told the nine-year-old me that one day it would be possible to watch lectures by grandmasters or play in chess tournaments on a little glowing slab, he would have been delirious with excitement.

Also YouTube in general - it's now possible to curate your own nerdy TV channel that's full of fascinating weirdos. TV is a lot stupider and more facile than it used to be, but it almost doesn't matter.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

can't unionize if you don't have a job.

Nursing is also a much more niche skill, and the value dictated heavily by a nationalised industry, brain drain and retaining people trained specifically for that role.

As most have said, the Xbox controller is a great way to go, there's native support in most games and it works well on Windows for obvious reasons.

That being said I'm sure a PlayStation controller works too. What I'm trying to say is go for one of the controllers that a company spend millions designing and developing as the sole control input for their console, instead of a MadCatz abomination.

PS4 controllers are actually quite lovely, but I got mine for naff all so that's obviously a factor, and of course you need a bit of third party software to trick games into thinking it's an Xbox one. However, in terms of the hardware itself, I'd say it's the tops.

The D-pad really can be an issue. It works fine movement controls even if it feels a little spongy, but some games initially designed for Sony consoles, RPGs in particular, use the D-pad like an extra set of four buttons instead. This works reasonably ok since they are physically separated making it easy to hit one direction only. Trying to do the same with an XBox controller, on the other hand, can be pretty torturous if fast and precise actions need to be done using that control scheme.

If the d-pad is a concern then a 360 controller is a bad choice. Solid otherwise, though, and should be pretty cheap.

If you play platform games or other games that use the d-pad extensively then a PS4 DualShock 4 or an Xbox One controller are the clear winners, IMO. Their d-pads are tighter than any of the classic controllers were even back when they were new, and even if you've got an old PS2/Saturn/SNES pad knocking around, chances are it's a bit knackered.

The Xbox One controller hooks into Windows using xinput, which is the de facto standard for pad support in PC games, the DS4 used to require fiddly third-party software to emulate this though Steam apparently now does a good job of supporting it natively. DS4s come with a rechargeable battery inside, but the battery life is pretty feeble.

>>22512
The Steam controller is an interesting design and I don't regret buying one, but I found that it landed in a no man's land between a pointing device and a gamepad, while not being especially competent at either. I've mostly used it for turn-based games where its accuracy isn't such an issue.

Only if your definition of "good" involves six hours of bitter arguments culminating in actual physical violence.

After playing "Pandemic: Legacy" to find out what all the fuss was about and having a really good time with it our little group has mostly been playing cooperative games. So far, we've probably sunk the most hours into "Eldritch Horror" (which made Arkham Horror tempting only until we heard it was even more fiddly). It does a pretty good job of keeping everyone involved: each player's turn is less one person making decisions while the others watch and more of a group effort to decide how the team can best achieve the shared goals and divide up tasks. Just beware: the box says "1-8 players", but that is a big fat lie. Unless you literally have all day or play with machine like efficiency any more than 5 isn't really playable.

I've recently bought a desktop computer, after using laptops for just over a decade, which means it's time to properly introduce my kids to computer gaming.

However, I'm incredibly out of the loop with this sort of thing. Which games would you recommend for children aged 6 and 9? I assume the likes of Command & Conquer, Sim City, Civilization, Rollercoaster Tycoon, etc. are still going strong. I'm about to install Steam so I'll have a browse on that - most of my friends still into gaming are raving about Rocket League at the minute.

Which Total War game would you recommend for a beginner? Are there any that have decent tutorials?

I think part of my shitness at Warhammer was that I'm used to the older games, so it might be less of a culture shock for yourself. My own, very personal and non-committal opinion would be Shogun 2 or Medieval 2. However, they're probably all worth playing. Shogun 2 was when they began changing the series up and has some very worthwhile add-on campaigns, so I'd probably advise you start there. If you really love stupid nerd shit though, Medieval 2 has an absolutely brilliant LotR mod called "Third Age", which is a major add-on/semi-sequal all of its own. And even though it's getting on a bit, Medieval 2 still looks ace.

I'm still here. I've got Two Point Hospital in my Steam wishlist so I'll probably get them it for Christmas. Thanks, lad.

At the minute they're mainly playing Fortnite and they seem to have suddenly got back into Stardew Valley again.

Well blow me. It's literally Theme Hospital in HD.

Lads, I'll be back in a month or three.

What are you thoughts on that one, lads?
I find it to be an amazing game... or interactive story? I don't even know at this point. Everyone nowadays keeps trying to define gameplay and video games through it and everyone fails in a completely unique way, so now people either just shout verbal abuse at each other and vent on Metacritic userscore with rape threats in their reviews or praise 'games' where all you can do is pushing the 'W' button as true art. Meanwhile Stanley Parable just gets the whole meta-narrative narrative on free will, as partly seen in Bioshock or Portal, runs with it to the nearest copy machine and throws it out of the window before fading to black. And that's all because you didn't fucking listen. And despite there not being any real puzzles or real endings or even failed state scenarios, no one seems to care - everyone loves it. So do I. I'm overwhelmed by this experience. After 3 or so hours I'm not sure how much is there left to explore, but every minute of those three hours was unique, subtle and witty. Even after the big reveal there's a whole lot of things I'm eager to try tomorrow.
Brilliant. Pure genius.

Also, my name is Stanley.

I finally played this game and am now bumping the shit out of this thread.

The bit when the narrator offers you a 3rd choice and displays a leader board got me hard. I am Stanley.

Quite soon into the game I realised it's tellintg me to get out, to live. It made it hard to continue playing, but thats the point, right? Now I have to decide if I wantb to go out and build a life or continue this. I wish it wasn't so .. but resisting gets me nowhere.

I don't think I've learned the lesson intended. I'm still pushing buttons. Though, part of me thinks it's impossible not to. Maybe that's the point? I'll have to play it some more if I want to understand but I feel like I shouldn't; like it doesn't want to be played.

Fuck, the other day I was offered an opportunity I've been asking for for a long time and my reaction was to resist in fear. I didn't engage with what may have made me happy. It's stuff like this that really gets me; refusing that opportunity then days later this game addresses that. I know this is self fulfilling prophecy, that the meaning is applied, but I still feel it.

Also the binge eating I did earlier helped.

It's the closest thing I have as supplement to my text. I could have gone with other irrelevant but more pleasing images but this is the first I actually considered.

I quite liked it.

Played it once, enjoyed it , uninstalled it.

I should play it again. I had a lot of IRL progress this year, and it might be fun to see it with a different pair of eyes.

I quite like the picture. I find most 'internet culture' to just be sycophantic pandering to people's insecure narcissism, that makes me vomit, sigh, and dispair on a continuous loop. So I agree with the message. But then I obviously hate people and think I know better than them what is best for them. So I might be a bit of a nob.
