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.

Been pouring some hours into Space Engineers.
A guy who I watch on twitch sometimes plays it and I ended up watching some youtube vids but with the lockdown and nothing good I started playing around on it.
Learning curve is a bit steep but after I came that I'm having some good fun with it. Vanilla is a bit dull so I did install a few mods, mostly quality of life and AI stuff.

Nowhere near touching multiplayer though, I'm having fun defending myself from the AI have watching burning wreckage fall from the sky when they send some drones at me.

I played 5, I skipped 4 but I don't think I missed much. It's all perfectly functional, the mechanics feel good, the story is kind of... There.

Nothing about it is bad, it's all quite polished, it's just completely and utterly devoid of emotion, positively or negatively. It's like a game on SSRIs.

Personally, it's gone right into the all time favorites and I award it a rare fanfuckingtastic out of 10. Amazingly well written and decently lengthy. Even if the story did pinch bits from plenty of other films & games.

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.

Did anyone see the trailer last week for Resident Evil Village (Resi 8)? Looks intriguing. Ethan and Chris return, looks to be witchcraft and werewolves, set in a snowy European village with a large castle. It's nice to see them trying new stuff with 7 and 8 while sticking to their roots with the 2 and 3 remakes. Capcom are really on a roll lately.

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.

Completely agree - I had the same problem with my original version PS4 - a noisy bastard that needed regular cleaning. The later models didn't suffer nearly as much.

I spent a good amount of time looking for after market fans, cooling, heatsinks and almost nothing exists. I guess this is because most people never ever think of taking their playstation/xbox apart.

PS Now's ok for turn-based games (I played a bit of Disgaea 5 on there), but it's shit for anything real-time. It's a slightly better deal if you've got a PS4 and use the ability to install games locally, but of course they won't let you do that on PC.

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 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?

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.

Is there a specific genre I should be refering to when looking for '4x, grand strategy RPG's? Games that'll let me do all the things in Stellaris, Anno1701, Europa Universalis, etc, but as an individual character as part of the world.

Mount&Blade Bannerlord looks pretty cool but I'm pretty sure my computer won't run it and it looks heavily combat oriented.

Sid Meier's Pirates! was fun but there's just something not quite right about it, and was too open as a sandbox.

X3 was probably the best I've played of this sort of thing, though it can take a long time to set anything up. The pace of gameplay can be really nice for immersion.

What I really want to play is a character who can interact with the game world in such a way as to influence the development of empires, rather than playing the head of those empires specifically. So if my guy attacks trade caravans, the networked towns will run out of food (or whatever). If my guy organises trade caravans instead, he can help supply a settlements demands and watch it grow. He can set up bandit camps to intercept traffic and build fortifications to defend against militia attacks; or issue bounties on bandits. You could go adventuring in caves and ruins and return with a cartloads of phat loot (accidentally inflating the regions currency in the progress). Supply nation X with a magical inventory to turn the tide in their war with nation Y.

EVE Online looks like a very effective medium for experiencing something like this but i lack the social skills to join a guild, let alone run one.

Oblivion or Skyrim would work nicely if the setting was much deeper and you could recruit NPCs for activites other than combat. Maybe hire a house from which to run your adventurer/merchants guild.

Have you found anything like this? Guild simulator or something?

I've gone with Star Sector and Kenshi - thank you to those who offered alternatives; they didn't quite pique my interest like these two did.

Star Sector is very fun. But for a few typos it's very polished; nothing so far has felt like feature creap dispite what appears to be great depth and a lengthy development time (still in Alpha after 10 years?!).

Kenshi looks like it was intended to be an MMO. My specs aren't quite up to par and I've yet to mod in lower textures and other workarounds, ao I haven't played it very much yet, but what I have seems interesting in that boring roleplay kind of way. It's not great fastforwarding while watching your guy mine a rock for 20 minutes, but when you have to sneak by the fight at the city gates while returning your ore, that's pretty fun. Once I start building and hiring companions it should get more interesting.

These two videos really sold me on the games. It was only after that i realised I'd been played by goods storytelling. The gameplay in both is a lot slower than portrayed, but they're still pretty fun when you adjust your mindset.

I've not watched the video but Kenshi seems like a misery simulator. If you play an ordinary schmoe in a Mad Max-type world then of course you're going to get exploited and shat on.

I did watch a video of one guy's playthrough which was the story of how he got into a fight in his starting city, was enslaved, broke his legs, escaped, crawled back through the wasteland, and got into a cycle of being enslaved and attempting to escape by crawling until he eventually died.

Is that a good story for so-called story simulator to generate? Is it fun? Don't mean to be a grumpy sod, I do have Kenshi on my wishlist, but it's just a bit questionable.

Had a similar experience. Bought a G27 thinking I'd get into sim racing, but after 15 or so hours in Assetto Corsa I just got bored of it. Driving without feeling the g-forces and sense of danger is pretty boring, so I think to make it exciting in a video game you need to really amp up the sensation of speed and go the arcade route like Midnight Club or the futuristic route like F-Zero.

I somewhat agree, Assetto Corsa either doesn't represent speed very well, or probably more accurately represents it too well - 60mph on a track looks and feels nothing like 60mph on a street, and that makes it much harder to judge the speed you should be going around a corner. I imagine everyone's first turn in AC ends up going very badly indeed. Widening the FOV helps a bit, but that's not the best solution in the world, even though AC has fantastic tools to align the camera when you do.

I bet VR fixes a lot of this, but like you say, you still don't feel the forces which is a huge part of it for, me, especially when braking. The best game I've played on a wheel so far is Grid, which I think has a good balance between arcadey and realism - the driving does match up with my real life experiences on a track, it's just turned up to 11 in terms of excitement and speed. I'm currently downloading the 100GB(!) of Dirt 2.0, I have high hopes for rallying on a wheel like this.

For a motorsport nerd like me, I do still see value in it, I honestly feel like my driving technique is improving from playing it, in a way that perhaps I wouldn't get just from a controller - the wheel does really react realistically to the forces put upon the car, and having 1:1 steering input is spot on. But now we're talking about me being a fucking sadact trying to shave seconds of his time at the nordschleife, which I appreciate isn't for everyone, it's barely a game at that point.

Also probably my favourite arcadey racing game is Forza Horizon 4, but the steering wheel coding in that game is absolutely fucking dogshit, due to the way each car has their own steering rack ratios but doesn't adapt your wheel's range of motion for it.

All in all I like it, but I'm really, really into driving and track days and shit, so my review is about as useful as a pilot telling you to buy a £300 sim yoke.

I've done it now lads. I was stupid enough to express interest in teamwork within an MMO, now i have to plan a fucking campaign to present to my guild mates. I didn't realise talking about it means i have to actually fucking do it. I'm not prepaired for this shit. I've read it's best to deligate tasks in any cooperation but how can i expect these people to take responcibility for something i suggested? All I offered was a dream, an idea on what could be awesome, but what if all i can actually do falls short of that. Is it okay to give out basic gear that's barely up to the tasks at hand? Is it okay to expect other people to provide the fun? I wish i'd never gotten myself into this. I can barely turn my back and hide - i put my name on this, my reputation.

Tell us about the times you took it upon yourself to inspire others in the games you play. Preferably with a positive outcome that might help me push through this mess ive made.

(A good day to you Sir!)

I hope this is a positive growth experience for you OP. That you realise you aren't just an observer in life and what happiness you can make for yourself if you put the work in.

>Tell us about the times you took it upon yourself to inspire others in the games you play

Organisation of loads of things, I run an online blood bowl league which is mostly an excuse to keep in regular contact with friends I might not talk to regularly otherwise on discord. It has really come into its own during corona outbreak as something for people to do, It has become more than just playing the game but a community hub and people who met through it branch off and play other games from that, which is lovely.

>Use your fucking spellcheck.
Let's see..
My appologies for the transgression. I'm still working on that proofreading habit.

I've analysed the chatlogs and i think i've found the major problems in my approach. Most significant is my lack of consideration to play times and how to actually get people together.
I think the 'build it and they will come' mentality will be worth trying, here; so long as i can commit to a time that's reasonable for the others, some people should arrive. If they don't, it's on them. I think the point is to make a date, otherwise whatever's in the air has no place to land. Other than that i could try approaching pre-established groups.

Second most is my inadequate preparation. For the time being i can offer basic equipment to the party but otherwise it's 'bring your own'. I'm still working on an incentive other than 'to have fun' - but the interested parties seemed keen enough as it is. Still, it'd be nice to have a net gain at the end of it.

For the most part the situation is not as dire as i felt earlier. Just gotta sleep on it and not react to that adrenaline dump.

>Thanks, man. I can still make it work, even if the plan changes a bit. Flexability is surely a good trait to practise.

Exactly these things operate on people’s good will and you can get more out of them if you act as always the positive force without judgement and roll with the punches.

Example I can I give is that in the BB league one of the players without communication just plain stopped turn up for matches with no explanation, plain ignored some people who tried to contact them. There were calls from offended parties to just remove them they were understandably pissed.

Eventually I was able to get through to them, and asked them if they wanted to be in the next season they told me they were depressed and withdrawn and it was for the best if I take them out of the league my response was

"That is a terrible shame. Personally I find these sorts of social things the best treatment for my depression, but I could understand if it becomes a chore for you and you feel socially obligated why it would be draining.
You still have one game left to play this season (vs [a friend they have in real life]) It would be great to see you come out of retirement for one last job!"

From that I was able to get them to play that one game and that was enough for them to sign up for the next season and become a highly involved in the league and the community.
The real problem there was they had built up an oppressive force they didn't want to face, and I could have easily played into that if I had approached the problem differently.

Ah that makes sense. Never played as or against Relius much, and Astral Finishes don't get pulled off very often, so I've just never seen that content.

Oh, not judging them, or anyone else who wants to draw porn for a living. It doesn't hurt anyone else, I don't see how it's any of my concern.

I note that Skullgirls got into some controversy going the other direction, editing sprites to take out some of the panty shots. It seems like an odd choice to me, given the game had been out for years by the time they elected to do this. By that point anyone who'd be offended by that stuff must have already made up their mind. There were some mutterings about this being an attempt to make it esports-friendly, but I find it hard to believe the developers had any such pretensions, not least because they left plenty of equally racy content in there anyway.

My partner is an artist, and if you're into hentai of pregnant chicks, chances are very high you've probably bashed one out to her work.

I'm not sure why people are always surprised by this, I have the opposite, where I'm just shocked anyone is naive enough to expect that there's anybody out there actually paying money for art that isn't porn, except perhaps furries, or maybe DnD character portraits.

Even Disney animators get up to it. You'd be amazed.

The lads who gave an entire generation a harem-girl fetish and a mermaid fetish are a bit pervy? I'm shocked!
