Humble Bundle are selling Crusader Kings II and all its DLC. I keep seeing this game everywhere so I thought I'd pick it up for the $1. I go back to Steam and in the reviews everyone is raving about what an amazing deal getting all the DLC is for $15. So caving into peer pressure I went back and purchased it again. You lads can have the spare Steam keys.

Is this morally right? I dunno I'm only depriving the sick kids of $1 aren't I?

These AI cunts seem to be somewhat more intelligent than I would've expected.
They do a lot of daft bot things, like wandering away from a 1hp ez kill stuck in a dead end. And then I didn't really expect having a C-4 package tossed right into my face. Nor did I pay attention to the cannon tower at the bunker side of crossfire. Kaboom, beep-beep-beeeeep.

Despite swearing it off about a year ago as an unforgivable time sink I've been dabbling in Hearts of Iron 3 again. I've been building the USA up to enter to the war, which isn't massively involved, so when I was playing last night I drifted off and managed to sleep through most of 1940. I don't think I missed much and I can't be bothered redoing all the pre-war admin so I'm just carrying on regardless.

It's just a WW2 simulation, it's far more military focused, indeed the politics is almost non-existent, there are no populations and playing as a minor nation is basically pointless, rather than being a challange like it is in most Paradox games. I think I've already given up on it though. I was playing with a mod, but it does something I can't stand where it makes the AI harder by just giving them a shite load of artificial buffs and gimping your own progress, I can stand that in some contexts, but not a WW2 game.

It's fun enough, but everything I just mentioned has soured this current playthrough. It's easier enough to torrent the regular game too thanks GOG!, and given that the base game can feel like a beta and the DLC is mandatory I wouldn't pay for it if I had another chance.

22461 Dead Companies Tell No Tales
Telltale Games is laying off most of its staff, canceling upcoming games

>"Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges," Telltale said in a statement. "Telltale will issue further comments regarding its product portfolio in the coming weeks."

RIP The Walking Dead Final Season.

What I think has probably happened here is they've overstretched themselves and people have become burnt out with the genre, there was a telltale game for every franchise going a few years ago. I bitter loss if you were invested in anything they've yet to finish though.

But after looking it up, it seems a holding company that purchased the assets to Telltale is relaunching it on a smaller scale. Positive news, although of course it could go either way from here on:

It's vanilla right now, save for GriefProtection, which allows you to claim an area of land that will be secured from damage/grief. I don't know if we need this or if it'll ruin the 'fun' of natural disasters like your house being cunted over by creepers. But for now all you do is do /claim in your house to claim your first area, then subsequent claims or edits will require a golden shovel. It's a whole thing, look it up.

I'm happy to stick other mods in there if we get bored, and please let me know if you encounter performance issues - I'm using some hosting service that might well be shite.

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.

I'm aware America has had those problems and surely still does to one extent or another, but there's no way you can defend the statement "almost anywhere in the world has better internet infrastructure than the States" when they're posting top 10 average speeds.

And who cares if half of America can't buy it? That stills leaves a market much bigger than the entirety of other countries they've deemed worth entering. I also don't think Google is betting even 1% of their success on the likes of Stadia. Game streaming has been on the cards for years and with all their datacentres and fibre they may as well toss their hat in the ring.

I can defend it, because my whole point was that average speeds have nothing to do with the average consumer experience. Most Yanks I know have shite internet and constantly moan about it.

With regards to Google I will admit I am just wishfully thinking that they will over-reach and collapse, before they get their slimy corporate hands on the blueprints for actual T-800s and start selling them to hipsters.

Allo .gs. I'm going to buy a Nintendo 64 for someone as a gift. I want it to connect to a Sony XF9005 TV.

I'm aware I'll need something like an A/V to HDMI converter, but I know these things can look shite if you don't do it right. Obviously it doesn't need to be crystal, but a good picture and sound would be nice. Is there a smart way of connecting it?

After having a Google I realise there are some interesting custom kits out there, like https://www.game-tech.us/product/ultrahdmi/, but that's a bit above my effort threshold at the moment. Any other recommendations?

They do specific ones aimed at the retro gamer. So long as you get one of those I don't think you can go far wrong, they usually also do stuff like compensate for frame delay, which is apparently a thing because analogue TVs at the time worked differently with the frame rate. You might have mixed results with a general purpose one.

When I was into retro games a few years ago the thing to get was called a Framemeister, but I'd imagine it has all moved on a bit now.

I'm going to start this by saying that it's going to look like absolute arse unless you pay a lot of money. It looking blurry and shitty might all be part of the fun, but if you're interested in why your childhood memories are going to look like a smudgy mess on that TV then read on, I guess.

Converting old analogue signals to HD digital ones is just massively more difficult than you'd imagine. Upscaling a DVD to make it look "ok" on a 4K set requires a lot of post-processing, and the end result isn't ever great. All modern sets that have analogue inputs are tuned to this use case - they will process the fuck out of composite video in an attempt to make DVD/TV look passable.

Unfortunately, this means that the situation is significantly worse for retro games. The aforementioned post-processing tends to add hundreds of milliseconds of latency, which makes anything other than turn-based games pretty much unplayable. This can sometimes be fixed to some degree by enabling "game mode" on the TV, and that may be good enough if you're just messing around and don't care how things look. It doesn't address the issue of scan conversion and upscaling, i.e. how to take a ~320x240 analogue signal and turn it into a 3840x2160 digital signal, in 16ms or less. The Framemeister >>22842 mentioned does a good job of upscaling, and the OSSC is also great, but neither of these are the kind of thing you'd give as a gift.

To make matters worse, an un-modded N64 doesn't output anything better than s-video, and that TV doesn't seem to have anything other than composite. That'll be composite "240p", and most consumer sets make a right fucking mess of upscaling this. Early 3D games get a particularly hard time of this as the aliasing (jaggies on polygon edges) tend to be much more noticeable than in 2D art.

>I'm aware I'll need something like an A/V to HDMI converter
There are no cheap composite to HDMI converters that are worth buying; they are simply the same chip (very likely worse, in fact) that's in that Sony TV.

Getting an N64 to look anything other than absolute shite on a modern set is really pretty hard. I'll almost always go with the original hardware for nostalgia purposes, but for N64, I'll go for an emulator-loaded laptop every time (not least because of the framerate increases).

I don't mind this at all but I wish it would have some actual function rather than being there for the sake of it.
If you had cosmetic affects for instance, If I could choose my pronoun to be xer and I play some 'girl' with masculine features and that voice trans have then yea think this would be interesting.

What think?

>but at the same time you shouldn't moan about having LGBT culture 'rubbed in your face' simply because it exists (as a lad did above).

Whilst that is true, sometimes it purposefully is. I usually consider that something to do with the insecurity of the person who insists on the rubbing in their own identity more than anything whenever I've seen it. Kind of like how American Atheists seem to revel in an adversarial to Christian position.Among groups like the fet scene there is definitely regularly the obnoxious righteousness that goes with that kind of psychological insecurity, where the stance of indifferance isn't good enough for people.

Indeed, but I think in general it's easy to read things as an attack on LGBT stuff when in reality it is just somebody saying that's not really their thing. Which, as we've agreed on, is fine. The phrase he used was "rubbed in his face" but I didn't take that as a moan at LGBT people, just a general way of expressing it was like having a bit too much mayonnaise on his chips for his liking.

>>22795

Of course, but not everything has to be for everyone. It's just as valid for a straight bloke to go "no thanks, it's a bit gay for me" as it is for a gay lass to go "nah, it's not gay enough for me". Generally though I think if people are placing so much weight in their sexuality and how it defines them as a person, I feel they would be able to make bigger gains by putting their self-esteem in healthier things, than by the token gesture of having a game call them xe.

You don't hear me complaining that furries are under-represented. We still have to make the yiff mods ourselves damnit.

I've avoided getting involved with this why can't we just talk about our RP adventures and Ventrue being best? and I don't know your LGBT resistance HQ but I used to frequent a gay-bar every month or so because I had gay friends. It was awkward at first but eventually I made friends with the other regulars and we got drunk and had a laugh as friends do.

This sounds more like the place you're going to is just full of dickheads who base their identity on being the other or you've not gotten to know anyone and therefore unconsciously see them as the other. I'd hazard the latter but there's always one person writing in the guardian. I mean, you're presumably a lovely couple so how is that different to any other bar? If you went with your boyfriend what would be different?

That said it's neither here nor there. We're talking about a game whose plot centres on an underground society of vampires and blood-magic. Although the franchise has a complicated relationship with sex it is generally assumed that vampires lack a sexual impulse and gender norms are irrelevant when you're a blood-thirsty predator. Pronoun choices are by extension irrelevant but there's absolutely no reason to tout it in this day and age unless they're going to make it a core part of the plot (which would ruin it) or otherwise use it to try and cover a bad game (the typical option).

From what I remember of Masquerade, a young vampire has been dead for 25-50 years and usually several hundred, some of them living for thousands, slow to adapt to society as they become more reclusive, and becoming consumed by their bestial nature they hardly seem the sort to be on the cutting edge of progressive. They also referred to the ruler of the city as 'the prince' regardless of sex because such concepts were irrelevant to them.

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.

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.

The one thing it probably did better than anything else is AI. It feels believable for reactions in a war zone, each type of creature has it's own personality that comes through. I don't recall anything doing as good of job of it before or since.

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.

I found a crystal xbox in some bushes, I've fixed it up and am just waiting on a controller now.

Are there any decent xbox exclusives? I can't think of any - Halo, Halo 2 and Fable all have PC ports. It is hardmodded so homebrew/foreign titles are options.

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. Now I can just sit in bed reading years and years of Spider-Man in one go on my tablet whenever I have a couple of days off. There's a part of me that still wants to pinch myself even as a 30 year old man.

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.

Minecraft or human interaction? I have minecraft on PC, haven't played it in ages. I've been playing Warframe a bit though, it's a decent multiplayer game.

What would you all have in mind to spunk some time on?

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.
