Given the recent political happenings, I've felt an urge to give some political war games a go. Problem is, I don't know any. Care to share some?

I hear Crusader Kings 2 is good - and it's on Linux.

18324 WarGame: AirLand Battle
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.

Indeed I was. I've just always thought Scandinavia was a bit of a weak sauce choice for a sequel, but there's not much to mock the region for other than its semi-mythologised status. So there's basically nothing.

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. Aside from the fact that the MMO market is naturally a monopolistic entity, Blizzards budgets are an order of magnitude larger than their competition.

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.

Right, so. We never agreed a wager but I'll settle for a quick blowie. Gender not that important. Location negotiable.

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.

Ever since I first got into school the day after I emerged from the sewers beneath the Imperial City, I've thought it'd be great if me and my buddy could go on a hike to Anvil together. But I'm not sure how fun that hike would be if I have to bump into Jean d'Bumblefuck and his shitlord pals every 5 minutes.

Needless to say, I don't think I'll be playing this so much I try to press a button to open the door to my room.*

I completely understand how you feel. There's many posts on the internet about how Elo hell does not exist. With that I agree, you can move up. But the rate at which you get out of a low elo, is ridiculous. For example, a 3000 elo player would take a long time to move up to 3000 from 2000 merely because his team would be useless. I have this problem like you where there are players going boots first item every game. They really need to have an elo reset button once per account in my opinion in case your calibration matches went appauling. (Mine did and I'm assuming your's didn't go great too.)

I had a look at it when I got my new phone. Basically when you sign up you choose a 'team'. Both teams have thousands of players. Basically landmarks have these beacon things that each team has to capture, you capture them by visiting them and (using your phones GPS) 'capture' them. I don't know how the game dynamics really work but that's the very basic explanation.

Around October/November last year I got bored of playing League of Legends, the only game I could play at the time on a sub-standard Acer with integrated graphics, I downloaded this on my phone and began hitting portals around my local area on my way to work. It didn't take me long before I was googling how to cheat at it, two weeks later I was at level 6 and pissing off a whole bunch of hardcore local Ingress players by GPS spoofing.

I even remember once I was a spot where there was about 8 solid good portals all within 100 meters of eachother, I used to spoof there every few hours and farm them for XP/items and one night whilst hitting them another local lad popped up saying, "Anon, you must be either very good at climbing or you are invisible to get past that security in those gardens", I carried on by explaining I was standing at a point where I could reach the portal but unfortunately the lad was at the actual location at the time, he caught me red handed.

After this confrontation I knew the gig was up and immediately turned my city blue overnight but using everything I had in my inventory, pillaging green fields and pissing off the whole Ingress community here. I awoke to furious messages in global from the greenies proclaiming, "SPOOFER! SPOOFER!". I laughed and giggled like a little girl and then deleted my account before I got banned.

Shit game but friendly community, if you've got no life go for it.. possibly make some *REAL* friends there too.

After a breif skim over wikipedia I've come to the assumption that Ingress is basically 'king of the hill geo-cashing'. Couldn't this lead to real life physical violence inorder to stop opponents taking your factions portals?

From Wikipedia:

>Augmented reality (AR) is a live, copy, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.

In practice, this means you point your device's camera at the real world, and something is rendered on the screen as though it were really there, so when you move your camera, the rendered elements move with it. The idea has been around for a while but it's only become popular recently in areas like smartphone apps, Google likes it, the Nintendo 3DS uses it. Search YouTube for examples.

With regards to Ingress, which I don't believe uses a camera, it means the game-relevant stuff is drawn over your phone's map, so as you walk around in the real world, you have to use your phone to see where the invisible 'portal' things are located and capture them.

It's a capture the flag type game. You pick a team and then capture areas or portals using your phone's gps. Portals are normally landmarks or points of interest. Players gain points by attacking the other teams portals and linking portals. It is addictive and very geeky.

17665 Building a retro gaming PC.
I understand the word retro here might offend or worry some of you old fogeys, but I can't do anything about that you old bastards.

I'm looking to buy or build a windows 98 machine that plays all the old classics, anywhere from the early 90s to 2002 (Baldurs Gate, Unreal Tournament and so on), at as best a quality as possible.

I know I can do all sorts to get them working on my current PC, but I really think nothing beats just playing them as they were meant to be, there's a tremendous amount of bugs and workarounds to deal with; its partly for the novelty as well.

Any ideas what I should be going for? I'm out of the loop for today's hardware, let alone stuff from a decade+ ago.

Cheers.

They've released two games in the last five years, nine in total over just shy of twenty years. As repeat offenders go the Wipeout series is pretty well-behaved.

I also thought the PS3 game was the best of the bunch, too, and by quite a large margin. Not tried the Vita one.

They're not bad. The main disadvantage was mod incompatibility between original and enhanced, but more and more of the popular mods for original BG are being revised and updated for EE. Bugs have been polished now, at least for BG1 EE, and the lack of loading times is a fucking timesaver. It's very much worth the investment, especially if on sale. The additional content shouldn't really be considered as a marketing point, since there's not much added to the core game, but it's like having a BG install with a few lore friendly, stable mods preinstalled.

As time goes by it gets more and more worth it. Personally I've just tried pirated versions since I mod my game to oblivion and BGEE still doesn't have that level of ridiculous content available.

Er, no, it isn't. It's a monopoly if Steam precludes the existence of other digital stores (or physical ones), and that's quite obviously not the case. Apple have a monopoly on iOS devices, Microsoft have a monopoly with Windows Store on Windows RT, and on Xbox Live, etc etc. Valve do not have a monopoly on PC gaming and the existence of the Steambox doesn't, and can't, change that - short of becoming an entirely isolated ecosystem in itself.

No, an overly large company can have a monopoly, it doesn't have to be the exclusive provider, it has significant market power.

Guess what's on sale?

Mount & Blade, that's what.

I wouldn't bother getting the collection and recommend getting just Warband instead. Vanilla is a bit lacking, and With Fire and Sword isn't that great in my view.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/48700/

It's a very fun game; hard to pin down the genre, it's an RPG/grand strategy with a bit of RTS thrown in. Very much worth a purchase imo.

You can get the collection for £7.50 or just Warband for £3.75.

There's a new M&B game due in the future.

M&B was never pitched at people with the best PCs. It's a Turkish game published by Paradox. This is more important when you're someone like me who only has a crap laptop and plays Warband on DirectX 7.

Another developer that doesn't bother his arse to finish his games, sadly. They are always half done and clear signs throughout where he's just said "fuck it" and decided to take money for the POS.

It's a game that works and is fun to play. What do you care if it has some arbitrary seal of "Completed" stuck on it? They're intended to be almost entirely open-ended anyway. It's not as though all "completed" games don't still have unresolved bugs even a decade after release.
Some gaming experiences are even improved by the process. When minecraft was fresh it was really enjoyable being able to look forward to updates and having time to experiment with them before even more stuff was added.

I was talking to the guy long, long before the first one came out as public betas. I know what the game was promised to be to the early adopters and why it ended up with broken and unfinished quests and content and then a series of cheap and shameless cash in pay-for mods to milk it.

When he spunked the budget on motion capture instead of finishing the fucking game content, quests, dialogues, etc. it was clear it was heading for the shitter. The same shitter that indie games were meant to avoid, sadly.

It's not that clear to me, or the other people in this thread who seem to have enjoyed it, or the majority of critics who've reviewed it etc. The games haven't been polished compared to £50 retail releases obviously, but that certainly doesn't make them bad.

The game does move very slow, the + and - keys should alter the passage of time. I have no idea how you could spend 90 minutes on the first level, maybe you didn't hear the instructions for an integral part of the game?

I'll buy games when I feel they've finished them. Too many failed and abandoned betas and kickstarters for one lifetime.

SupCom is a good contender to be an exception to that. Resource management is extremely important, the maps are fucking huge so there's a lot of scope for actual strategy (as opposed to a complex system of quickdraw rock-paper-scissors) and the units all move relatively slowly so there's no micro. The action queues are so extensive and flexible you can automate factories to produce battle-groups which are automatically picked up by airlifters and taken to a destination where they'll automatically converge on a battlefield in a co-ordinated strike with units built somewhere else entirely. The Westwood and Blizzard school of RTS is more micro-arcade than Cavedog's macro-many-spinning-plates approach.

Not that I've ever watched a high-level game of SupCom be played but the mechanics are there.

My attack forces keep getting destroyed. I didn't know about the +/-, that should speed things up.

I don't know if you're talking about the vanilla game or the expansion but neither should take more than 15 minutes for the first level. There are tutorials on youtube.
