Typically yes, everyone can. Most servers have automatic welcome messages and some also have automatic farewell messages which show when users enter or leave (but not come online/offline). The gs one doesn't have that, at least not one that's visible to users right now.

Among Us is very fun. It's pretty much a multiplayer Chatoom Mafia game with extra visual and proximity mechanics - you run around solving simple puzzles to land your spacecraft while trying to figure out which one of the crew is killing the rest. When you find a corpse, you have a choice to reporting it and discussing who might be responcible for causing it. You can also call an emergency meeting for similar purposes, after which you vote on who to throw out the airlock. There are security cameras for you to spy on suspicious crew memebers, facilities useful for proving your innocence, and other cool little things to engage with while the killer is on the loose.

It's pretty much a light experience of what I imagine Space Station 13 to be like. If you find a group willing to perform some light roleplay and actually discuss who the 'Imposter' could be it's a very fun experience. There are plenty of morons though who just want to push through the game as fast as they can and completely miss the point of discussion. Thankfully, the different maps seem to apeal to different types of player - the spaceship map has offered the most engaging players and actual intelegent social dynamic from my experience.

For just a few quid it's really worth it. I've probably played over 6 hours today [spoiler]Go on, judge me[/i].

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.

My current Kindle is from ~2014 and the one before that was the original 3g one from 2010 so I'm not exactly up to date with the latest devices, but at least with the older ones you could just plug them into your computer with a USB cable and copy over whatever PDF/mobi files you'd downloaded from the interwebs / bought on other ebook stores over to it.

I've seen this "it's a sim so we can charge you 'sell a kidney' prices" lots and I was wondering if anyone knows whether it's just a cash grab, they won't sell as many copies as CoD or the MCC so they have to charge more to break even or are there actually additional costs involved with making sims that justify higher prices for the customer? It seems to me that it's often just a case of a captured audience who can't "vote with their feet" because some sims have de facto or near monopolies on their genre.

They're a for-profit company, they're just charging as much as they think they can get away with.

I've got no problem with DLC in principle, but I hate day zero DLC and "premium editions". Salami-slicing a game on release day just feels grubby and exploitative, especially when you're parcelling off some of the most desirable content.

>console FPS-RPG hybrids
* Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
These are both a bit janky in their own ways, but atmospheric beyond words if you're lucky enough to make that emotional connection. They nail that feeling of coming into the world as a nobody and the satisfaction of learning to deal with strange situations. There are various 'unofficial' patches/mods around of varying quality, ask more if you're interested. Oh and how could I forget..
* Deus Ex

>90s style RTwP
*Baldur's Gate 2 is the classic of this genre
*Arcanum & Planescape are a bit more creative, and personal favourites of mine
but right now I'm loving Pathfinder: Kingmaker, it's a fresh take on a pure high fantasy romp. Character creation options overwhelmed me at first, so I made a pure good guy paladin; from this angle the content is very satisfying but I'm keen to go through it as a selfish dickhead and enjoy all that sweet, sweet reactivity I think is there

>linear turn based JRPGs
* Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne (released here as Lucifer's Call) can be found cheap for your old PS2. The game's (relative) brutality might put you off but it's the pinnacle of the genre for me. There are various other games, by the same developers, in the same vein, that are a bit simpler and more often recommended to newcomers. Like Digital Devil Saga, maybe a Persona game (which revolve around tedious delightful cringeworthy creative high school relationships content)
* Dragon Quest games (powerhouse in Japan) have a less interesting combat system and a more traditional setting. More classical fairy tale style, which may be fun escapism. Play if you want to live in world where the good guys always win in the end, there is always a magic harp to wake up the sleeping princess, and no person is truly evil, only misguided/manipulated and redeemed in the end

23960 Most disappointing game you've ever played?
Not necessarily the worst, but the game which failed to meet your expectations. For me it's a toss up between Brink and Kingdom Hearts 3. Brink had a really cool setting but it was a pretty mediocre team based FPS. I thought it would be the defining game of the time but it seemed to peter out within a matter of weeks. Kingdom Hearts 3 was an unsatisfying conclusion to ~15 years of build up, and has probably the worst story I've ever seen in a AAA production.

How about you lads?

The music's great, and it looks lovely. It just didn't compel me to go back. When I finished it I was done. The other Mario games somehow make me want to pick them up again - just recently I played through Sunshine again, it's a fantastic game, and I'd just turned 18 or so it has some fun nostalgia in there for me. These days it's quite easy to get an SD card loader running on a Cube, which allows you to force various video modes and so on, but also allows you to change that stupid inverted horizontal look that Sunshine uses, with no option to change (same for FFXII if I'm not mistaken - it's one thing to invert by default, but give us an option for fuck's sake). Anyway just passing that on, as it made the difference between me dicking around for 15 minutes and moving on, vs. finishing the game.

Funny you mention Sunshine, because that's my most disappointing Mario game.

To make one Super Mario Sunshine:

-Take Mario 64
-Give Mario a cleaning-dirt-with-water mechanic that gets used interestingly for about five seconds
-Replace Power Stars with 'Shines' except to get them you don't achieve interesting objectives in the world but enter mysterious caves and do self-contained platforming segments
-Replace Toads with 'Delfinos' who have even less personality and are apparently so unconcerned about their island being in jeopardy that they will hoard Shines until Mario does an errand

Honestly I've never felt a Mario game to be so phoned in.

There are places where it feels clunky - the camera trying to find the "right" place when in tight spaces sticks out especially. It's an early 3D game and you adjust your expectations accordingly.

Yeah it wasn't so bad. Having to do the whole of the hospital in one stretch was much more tricky.

I did the DLC afterwards (Grounded doesn't make much odds here, but it's still great), and then read the comics (eh... I've read worse). Now I'm really fired up for a game that's not going to be released for years.

I think anyone who pays enough attention to E3/gaming news to have seen the FFVII trailer will understand the significance of it, regardless of age. Every review of a JRPG seems to mention FFVII, almost every list of top RPGs/Japanese games/video games in general has FFVII in the top 20. I think anyone who follows video games will understand why there's so much hype surrounding the trailer, even if they have never played the game and even if they weren't born until after it came out.

It's kind of like Ocarina Of Time, I know a lot of people who have never played it, but who say it's the best game of all time because it has a reputation of being as such.

Anyone else taken a crack at it?

My take is that, predictable gore aside, this is actually a pretty fucking weird game underneath. It's like they took the main elements of Amnesia etc and then added a bunch of Resident Evil details around the edges. Which sounds shit, but somehow they sort of made it work? Fuck knows how, but I'm up at 6AM playing it so there's definitely something there.

It couldn't be less like RE6 if it tried; it is different in every way. I'll give them credit for taking the risk on rebooting a franchise so hard.

I'm still not sure if I actually like it, though.

Ethan and Chris return, looks to be witchcraft and werewolves, set in a snowy European village with a large castle.

One of my weird guilty pleasures is watching people play these zombie games on youtube.

I hate watching these things, I don't get Twitch or anything like that yet did really enjoy some Youtuber playing through the one where they're in the deep south house.

Anyway, if there's a new one and somebody has a link to a play through please do share.

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.

It's a spin off which is basically a blocky Diablo clone with no depth.

As somebody who's followed MC for years...
How the hell are you supposed to know about anything if you approach it completely new? Theres nothing at all to even suggest the Nether and the End exist etc.

Playing on a server with people who have more experience, watching minecraft youtubers and/or reading the wiki.

Which sparks an interesting debate about what constitutes a playable game. If a game is presented to you in a purchasable package, but there is a whole website full of supplementary material not included in that package required to make the game enjoyable, is that fair? Do we just assume everyone has Internet access all the time from now on?

It's this kind of attitude that is spelling the death of the instruction manual. 'Oh just Google it'.

Minecraft has probably changed a lot since you last logged on. The game is still the same, but there's a tutorial of sorts now which show you how to punch a tree, build a workbench, and so on, and this is tied into the "advancements" which is like an achievement tree that if you followed completely, I think would bring you all the way to the End - I'm not sure how much these prompts will hold your hand or guide you, but they're there:


There's also a recipe book so you don't have to look up how to build everyfuckingthing like you used to.

I also just think it's a game thats always expected you to look stuff up. When I was into it ten or so years ago, you definitely had to tab out to a wiki or guide to play survival properly. Now, I feel like there are adequate in game resources to complete it unaided.
