Right lads. The PS3.

Is it worth getting one just for the Exclusives?
I have a 360 and that would remain the main console for anything multplat you see, but I am tempted by MGS4 and the like.

If you ever play an online FPS even slightly well you'll get loads of shitlords hatemailing you.

This one time I was playing Black Ops (don't judge - I bought it for the zombies. Mostly.) and I somehow stumbled into a glitch where my character didn't die when he should have and just kept running about like the goddamn terminator. Naturally the match soon became me stabbing enemies whilst they emptied machine guns and rocket launchers into me (sometimes even killing themselves with the explosion - but not me). The amount of 'wtf hax' hatemail was golden. One guy even had genuine hacks and offered to boost my character for the 'secret'.

The best hatemail comes from playing Demon's/Dark Souls. I think because there is some weird expectation of honour, and if you don't bow before duelling with the person you've invaded it's considered poor form.

The hatemail I got was from my first and so far only online match on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle. Apparently I'm a "spamig bitch", even though the most popular character's fighting style is based pretty much solely around spamming punches.

Anyone a regular player? Been playing for a week and seems like a bit of fun muck around with while doing other things. Wondering if it gets painstakingly dull once you advanced a fair way.
Also, I'm looking to join an easy going corp, got kicked from the last one after 2 days for jokingly calling the captain a cunt. Woops.

too many buttons.jpg
I remember watching some YT videos on EVE years back and thought it looked like good fun. Managed to get myself sent an invite and downloaded/loaded it all up.

I think I played for about 10 minutes before deciding that there were too many buttons and too many menus.

They've changed their PS3 Dust game to become a lot more like what people have posted here regarding the menu on the left. I've found it a lot more complicated to use from how it was originally and stopped playing.

I am a bit of a simpleton, in fact, my 'friends' cruelly call me 'Simple Tim' because my name is Timothy but I just felt like there was nothing intuitive about it.

Still, have enjoyed looking at the pictures in this thread and reading a bit about it all again.

So who's excited for this? I was pretty unsure about it, but having watched VaatiVidya's gameplay videos, it looks really good (though do bear in mind that his videos feature an annoying amount of shilling for Gamestop).

Apparently it's more accessible without being easier - fast travel available from the beginning, encouraged to go anywhere from the beginning rather than following a particular route like in the previous game, crafting has been streamlined somewhat etc. Combat looks to have been changed to be more punishing though, as you no longer have invincibility during ripostes/backstabs like you did in the first game, and the backstab window is a lot narrower, meaning fighting other players should be less about rolling around hoping to be first to backstab. Dying causes your maximum HP to decrease, with enough deaths reducing it to a minimum of 50%. Reversing hollowing restores it to 100%. I quite like that, as it's a return to the soul form thing in Demon's Souls but slightly less harsh. Also the game allegedly has a less awful framerate.

Couple of reservations though. I worry that it'll be just more of the same, and the areas I've seen described don't seem too dissimilar from those in the first game. There's even a Blighttown/Valley Of Defilement type area with poisonous mist, which is bad because they were the worst levels of their respective games.

So what builds are people planning? The stats have changed a lot, so that might take some getting used to. http://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Stats

I think its a bit of a slow burner. It took me a while to enjoy Dark Souls and each new area was punishing.

I have a similar feeling with this game now. I've yet to complete it and I'm currently drudging through the underground section after Drangleic castle. Dark Souls was a lot more enjoyable for me when I had an idea of how the game plays out and I could plan my route or what items to pick up. I know there are some NG+ additions which should be something to look forward to.

You might find your efforts in vien. In the past Toady has changed key aspects of the game that literally made 'practice' obsolete. I think it was the 2012 update that overhauled the way military worked and was controlled (there were a few others too which I forget).

I find it pretty difficult to make sense of Toady's updates so I don't really know whats in store for the next release. The only thing I know about is the changes to trees, which I'm obviously looking forward to (I prefer building above ground wooden forts).

Fair point, as I understand it, this release is pretty major, with huge changes to the game from the roots up, lots of interactions, social changes, the new trees, new combat system. It's going to be damn good.

I imagine old saves will not be compatible either.

The voice is a little strange. According to Hideo he's meant to sound older than previous incarnations of Snake though that doesn't explain how Old Snake sounded better than that with Hayter.

Still, the game looks amazing in my view. Genuinely the only game trailer I've seen that makes me want to get an Xbone or PS4 (I'm still not going to but before I had absolute zero interest).

Just wondering if anyone on .gs was a WarGamer. Not that anyone who actually plays WarGame calls themselves that, that would be pathetic.

For those who don't know, WarGame AirLand battle is a WW3 simulator in which you control either the Warsaw Pact or NATO forces as they slug it out over the eternally tense and excitingly war torn region known as "Scandinavia". A largely fictional realm based on the ancient land of Hyperborea.

Players can deploy forces from the USA, UK, Canada, West Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, USSR, East Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia, with several Asian nations being added in an upcoming sequel.

No matter what your opinion of it is, WoW has actually broken the MMO market. Blizzard own this market and there isn't much that can be done about it.

Really desperately tempted to buy this lads.

Cheapest I can see it for online is about £33. I'm broke and bored out of my tits recently so if I buy a new game, I want it to be one that will last me a good while as well as be entertaining.

How's the duelling and WvWvW aspects? Is the average skill level stupidly high such that it will prevent me enjoying myself if I jump in and try to play it? I've never been much into PvP in MMOs, it has always seemed to me that FPS deathmatches offer much fairer competition. What's it like in this case?

I suppose the most important aspect for me though is the kind of loot and gear on offer. Oblivion and Skyrim barely managed to satisfy my constant craving for newer, shinier gear, but I seem to be getting mixed opinions on how the gear progression is in GW2. Some seem to think it's perfectly balanced while others tell me you'll be wearing the same shit for 40 levels before getting the decent stuff... What's the truth? As far as I can see personally there's plenty of variety.

Sell it to me chaps... I want it but I don't want to feel the bite of buyer's remorse. And if so, any of you chaps playing it that I can tag along with on some dungeons or something?

GW2 launched August 28th, I can't find accurate user figures but it's down a bit from 400,000 as best I can tell. WoW has something like 7 million.

You level fast in this game so I'd honestly wouldn't bother getting the best gear for your level as you level. When I started playing the only thing I used which was the best at the level were weapons I crafted just to boost my crafting. Once you hit the level cap you can focus on getting the best loot. That said they introduced a new kind of gear which is better than the end game gear on release, but that stuff takes time to get so you'd want to get a full exotic set first then work on ascended.

WvW and sPvP can require some skill depending on what you fight. If you join hot joins in sPvP you'll have a barrel of the mix, some good players that will dominate you and some which you'll stomp. Same with WvW, if you follow your servers zerg you'll come across either smaller enemy zergs or even bigger ones which run away or crumble as soon as one of them die. At the same time you'll come up against a guild group and die before you know what hits you.

From there you'll have a trial and error learning moment where you'll start to avoid dying or live longer in such fights. It doesnt take much skill or thought you just need to learn the basics and what to look for.

But before you jump into PvP I'd focus on leveling and getting the best gear you can first, then have a mix of pvp and pve. And most importantly... enjoy the playthrough, try not to rush things.
