#484769 E3 2017: Everything was Metroid

Posted by Rune Walsh on 12 June 2017 - 06:32 PM

You know how you really sell VR games? Videos showing your weapons flailing as wildly as they possibly can.




#484252 What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been considering getting a PS3. Mostly because my Blu-Ray player just died but also because I can pick up all three of the Uncharted games for under $10 at Gamestop. Is this a terrible plan? If I want to actually use it to play games, what size hard drive should I look into getting?

April 11th, baby. Something's happening in Bayonetta land, and I AM EXCITED.

 

Bayonetta's on Steam now.




#483498 Mass Effect: Andromeda

Posted by Rune Walsh on 21 March 2017 - 06:54 AM

But with Andromeda?  I can excuse the minor stuff, because I've come to expect those now and again in BioWare titles.

 

I'm pretty sure there's a term for that. It's called Stockholm Syndrome.

Did your corpse get PotG at least?

 

Yeah no, it was a crappy run all around. I just set up my turret on the moving platform. My turret and I got maybe 4 kills all together. Spat out 22 armor packs though. Only one on my team to get an End Game Card.

I was playing with a friend last night, we were running defense on Volskaya and we get completely crushed. And then I got 10 commendation points for creating the most armor packs. I have no words.




#480842 SSLF Spark Thread (Guest Starring Screenshots)

Posted by Rune Walsh on 17 December 2016 - 04:26 PM

Marcus literally has more personality in that single screenshot than Aiden had in all of the original game.
 

I have my gameplay qualms with Watch_Dogs 2, but at least the protagonist is an actual character and not a talking cliche incapable of gratitude or an emotion beyond gruff disgust.

 

As soon as I saw him do an Unnecessary Parkour Flip™ I was like "Oh, you're not what's-his-name. I like you."


And since I'm on the topic:

#480679 Let's Play! (Or watch video games on Youtube)

Posted by Rune Walsh on 12 December 2016 - 03:29 PM

In this topic we discuss "Let's Play" videos, videos uploaded to Youtube of a video game being played, and usually accompanied by humorous commentary.

Have any Let's Players that you like to watch? Are you yourself a Let's Player? Any and all discussions about Let's Play videos go here.

 

 

OK, intro's out of the way, time for my shameless plug.

I and a friend of mine have been doing various Let's Plays on and off for the past 2 years or so, if you're interested in that sort of thing, check out my channel!

Our first series we did Terraria, with our horrible audio problems, and my obsessive need to put minecart tracks everywhere.

Spoiler

We did a brief Don't Starve Together series, which lasted two sessions before we quit.

Spoiler

And we just finished up our Starbound series last week.

Spoiler

Where could we possibly go from there? Obviously the most logical leap, is to ARK Survival Evolved, and our new series just launched today!

Spoiler

New episodes come out every weekday between 1 and 5 pm Eastern Time

If that sort of thing floats your boat, feel free to check 'em out!

I'm sorry, but there's only one Mummy movie, and it doesn't star Tom Cruise-missile.
 

 

I dunno man, this one's got Grand Moff Tarkin and Count Dooku, so....

 




#476940 Gaming PC Enthusiast/Discussion Thread

Posted by Rune Walsh on 04 September 2016 - 08:17 PM



I have a build pretty similar to that and even with a weaker CPU I can play whatever I please on max settings. However, a word to the wise, get a full tower not a mid! I have one and they're painfully small which makes upgrading for the future impossible unless I replace it. Also I don't think you can actually fit the regular 960 into one: I had to spend extra for a physically smaller card and it barely fits in.

 

 

Thanks for the tip Cap, but I kinda already bought everything when I made my last post. (And the last parts arrived when you made yours)

 

Gentlemen: Say hello to Calcifer.

 

 

 

 

EDIT: Oh also there's no reason to get a wannabe-pro-gamer keyboard+mouse unless you really want to. I personally just use Red Dragon stuff

 

 

Amusing anecdote: the guy that gave me the build did recommend some alternatives to the peripherals listed, but his KB/M wasn't in stock. Not wanting to wait the 3 weeks until it would get here, I started searching Amazon for a different one... And decided on a Redragon.

I've gotten back into Runescape recently,  and I just got my first skill to 99!

It was Divination. I'm pretty excited.




#474547 The Pokemon Thread

Posted by Rune Walsh on 19 July 2016 - 07:50 PM

EDIT: When an Eevee evolves, it's completely random which Eeveevolution you get. That is obviously BS and makes this the definite worst game ever.

Jolteon is my favorite pokeyman guys. Nintendo must hate me.

 

Apparently (According to a trending topic on Facebook) If you nickname your Eevee "Sparky" "Pyro" or "Rainer", it'll evolve into a Jolteon, Flareon, or Vaporeon, respectively.

Anyone else play Town of Salem? It's basically like an online version of Mafia, or The Werewolf Game. There's a lot of additional roles so that everyone has something to do.

For instance on the Town side you've got your Sheriff who can check to see who's suspicious, the Doctor who heals people in case they're attacked, the Lookout that can stakeout someones house to see who visits, the Investigator who can try to determine someone's role, and so others.

 

On the Mafia side you've got the Mafioso, who does all the killing, the Godfather who'll step in and do the killing if the Mafioso died, and the Forger who can plant evidence to throw off the Sheriff and Investigator.
 

Then you've got your wildcards, the Executioner who only wants to lynch one specific town member, and the Jester, who's only goal is to get himself lynched.

And that's not even getting into the many more roles outside the classic mode.

 

It's free to play through that link I gave, or it's $5 on Steam, (Or $3.34 during the sale. Which just gets you some cash for cosmetics and a removal of the sidebar ads.) And I'd highly recommend giving it a try. Could be good potential for a fun game night if we get enough people.
