I invented a new technique in my favorite game that involves a ledge dash into a moonwalk into a stickywalk into another moonwalk into a ledge grab, everything else after is just extra. I am the only person on the whole planet who I have seen do this.

I call it the DINGU DASH

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0LWJr3b9QY

The mechanics of moonwalks and chaining them together in this style is actually insane to execute and took me years. Requires alot of speed and precision. If anyone else shows me them doing one i will shit my pants.

How do you guys feel about Clear Sky? I've played SoC so many times that I enjoy Clear Sky for the change of scenery. Unfortunately I've never got CoP to run properly on my shitty laptop without frame-rate issues that make it unplayable.

Also best mod/s for Clear Sky? I was just going to go with Complete and maybe Arsenal Overhaul

That's a bit like asking "How hard is it to play the flute?". You could spend 10 years learning about level design and still make shitty levels. It's both a job and an art form and it's incredibly time consuming.
As for the technical side it's not too hard thanks to the numerous tools. Get doombuilder and start cranking!

Just a heads up. I had to search for it but the new brutal doom is mostly playable as well as the new Extermination Day maps/vehicles/weapons. You'll want to download the brutal doom beta from moddb uploaded in August. If you want the maps search for Extermination Day: Eye of the Storm.

Extermination day has tons of map improvements since I played the demo a while back. The new brutal doom feels a lot different. The weapons share ammo which I HATE because it makes half my weapons pointless and I have to constantly swap through all of them because using them in an emergency would deprive me of ammo I need for better weapons. I hate to do it but I might just bind a key to drop weapons. It also helps a lot more to use specific weapons besides the shotgun and rifle now and the game feels a lot less arcadey because of it. You'll be switching weapons quite a bit. Some of you might not like it but the weapons themselves are by far my favorite out of any version. The new gore and everything is quite noticeable at times too. I love it

Overall it's just much different than the previous version but I hope it's not the last version. Definitely an improvement overall.

It's my only real complaint but it sucks balls. It's still kinda interesting in terms of strategy though. Ammo is now a much bigger factor in choosing your weapon. It becomes a question of how many bullets do you NEED to spray per second in order to survive, so it's not like you just stop using the weaker weapons altogether. Even the weaker guns still have situational advantages even if it's not often. At the end of the day it's just a minor annoyance that takes away from the immersion.

I think the last version went perfect with the original Doom wads. This new version has a script that makes old wads look fancier and it's absolutely amazing, but the gameplay doesn't fit quite as well. This version seems to be designed for Extermination Day.

I also tried Ashes and wasn't too impressed but I'll try it again later

nb but when I say they share ammo I mean certain guns share ammo with certain guns, not all guns use the same ammo. When you've got 3 machine guns and 3 shotguns and 5 ways of using grenades it gets annoying. I don't remember this being a thing but maybe it's just noticeable since there's more weapons now

Crossout is pretty fun. It's like robocraft in a Mad Max setting. It's better in almost every way though, especially when it comes to building stuff. It doesn't seem pay to win so far but I don't care because it's fun and unlocking new stuff isn't that hard. It seems only pay-to-not-grind and it does a decent job of matching you fairly.

It seems like early on the best option is to build something tank-like but I can never resist bending the rules. This thing actually handles quite well because the sides drag on the ground making it easier to aim the rocket, which would normally require wider wheels in the front.

Any of you ever wondered why nobody makes more games like Island Flyover from Wii Sports Resort? Well so did I, and I found a game called AER Memories of Old. Its a super relaxing game where you just fly around, taking in the sights, music, and great vibes. There isnt a single better game for smoking and chilling. Id say check it out, though it is 15$, and pretty short.

I actually bought this. First saw it when FLYLO retweeted the trailer. Then I saw a video on it by dunkey that made it look not as great as the trailer made it seem. The way you describe it though, ima install it so I can get around to playing it.

I only checked it out cause of dunkey's video! I got it for 10 bucks and I've put 20 hours into it plus another 10 hours if you want to count having it "autoplay" as a trippy ambient thing.

What I found most enjoyable was creating microstories for what was happening. Like, I'd be a bird and my goal is to find another bird to reproduce with. It's definitely not a game for everyone. You have to be one of those people who prefers organic exploration to min-max domination. I found myself creating these little stories in my head constantly, something that only happens when I'm screwing around in standard open-world games like fallout. If you're not a creative soul, you probably won't appreciate Everything. Just be warned. I tried to turn a lot of my friends on to it and they really didn't get it.

I enjoyed it the most on DXM and weed, but I also enjoyed it sober for the record.

Just an FYI, AER is on sale half off until the 29th, Id say this is the price the game should be.

Also, theres this underwater game called ABZU that looks pretty nice. Seems more popular than most games in this thread. Its swimming instead of flying, but the 3D movement and exploration is the more important thing than the true flying.

In years passed I used to play co-op games like the Half-life mod They Hunger. I also visited Phantasmagoria a few years ago, a fantastic trip to video point and click 90s horror games. I played Friday the 13th multiplayer last year (cool for a gimmick) and 'Gone Home', though not a horror game, more of a mystery, it was a great atmospheric game suitable for the Halloween spirit.

This year I'm wondering.. in addition to my movie schedule, what are some great horror games I've missed out on? What are some great horror games to play? I include emulator games for n64/xbox/psx/ps2/gamecube/xbox360 era games that I may have missed out on, though my primary focus is PC gaming.

Manhunt was edgy as fuck for its time, but it's not so much a horror game as much as a horror-themed stealth-game; the mechanics and general design never really achieve that sense of dread and vulnerability the way Silent Hill, FEAR, Amnesia/penumbra, Outlast, Aliensolation, etc do.
A number of non-horror games do a much better job of creating the feeling of horror at times than Manhunt ever achieves.

I agree with this unless you have the game on the xbox with its mic set up. Both the Director being in your ear and any sounds you make alerting people in the game made it tense as fuck.

I have a mod for Fallout 4 that does something like this. It extends the glowing sea much further than Vanilla, spawns an almost constant stream of enemies of all sorts that wage a non stop war on each other (and would love to turn the attention onto you if you get spotted), and increases everyone's level by a +10 compared to your own.
No matter when you visit it there's a challenge, and much of it isn't just a raw stat check.

Sounds like it makes it more interesting... but it still doesn't replace a planned world or give it the same kind of structure something like Gothic (for all its faults) would. The Bethesda approach is to not worry about it and scale it all, because it would be too much work to do otherwise.

Have you heard of Skyrim:Requiem? Removes enemy scaling completely, huge overhaul to the game, you can barely 1v1 a musical at level 1, I had to get my first level mining and smithing because almost everything could stomp me. It makes bleak falls barrow a pretty intimidating place, I had to turn and leave after getting the claw statue thing. When going around the world I had to skulk along riverbeds and through bushes by roads as a wandering group of 3 bandits could push my shit in. Strong recommend, fixes my main issues with the game. Add in frostbite and realistic needs+ diseases and it completely revives the game

way easier to do combos dude. They make more sense on the stick it becomes less complex, one less thing your brain needs to manage in a fight.

I was watching The Expanse and it got me thinking if there are any RTS/RTT or similar where there is actual information delay when dealing with vast distances. Information travels at the speed of light so if you have a ship 20 light minutes away it takes 20 minutes to send an order. Doesn't even have to be space either, like back when you'd send ships out across the ocean and didn't hear back for months. Usually you have a god view of the entire battlefield, and even when there is a fog of war it's just something you have to blow away. I'm looking for something that doesn't have that, where you send out orders to troops that you're not even sure are alive.

I've actually played a lot of Foxhole. Really engaging game. No luck getting other people here interested though.

Seems like nobody actually QMs and it's just total chaos these days, though? If Logi could share orders and have a default squad it could maybe work. But doesn't seem like there's any kind of effort made toward a unified strategy if any kind anymore. As if it's become TOO big. Nobody can manage it. So it's just a bunch of people shouting requests and maybe someone fills them.

I preferred it with single maps, honestly

If you get a QM and logistics team, your team wins. It's not even hard to start the order if you're high ranked enough people kinda still respect that. Then again, I got so good at the combat that I've killed 12 man squads solo with a carbine and grenades and a revolver. I then took out their supply line and started commanding an attack squad. Another time I took out the enemy vehicle factory at the start of the game and blew up or stole most of the supply trucks they managed to make. I've also played logistics, but I find going behind enemy lines to be more fun.

I'd play if more people here would. It's an excellent game, and they've added a lot to it since I last played.

Project Reality has a commander who can give orders and send artillery to marked coords, but must entirely rely on player squads to do anything.

Natural Selection 2 and Empires (RIP) are RTSs where the commander can drop blueprints and do research, but all units are actual players.

I came back recently and asked, "does anyone QM anymore?" and a player I knew from before said, "Not really, not for several months." Apparently it's just not done anymore. I know some people are really anti-QM. But without some kind of planning, it's really hard to make orders work. It's just chaos.

They changed everything around again and I have yet to try it again. But they were going to put in the ability to make and fill orders... Maybe finished by now? Total UI overhaul I heard. I'll check the changelog. That'd make logi a lot more bearable. Usually I start as logi to get a feel for how the war's going, then change over when I see where I'm needed. Behind enemy lines can be a lot of fun, indeed. (Just checked devlog. Apparently they are adding squad-shared orders for logi, which would be huge. Basically eliminates a lot of the need for a QM.)

I'd be down to play at some point but I have weird hours generally. Maybe on a weekend. It's a great game for getting totally absorbed in. I'm not amazing at it but I'm smarter than the average bear, certainly.

Checked it out again the other day. Good stuff. Has those heart-pounding moments that few other games give me. Waiting around a corner with a shotgun behind enemy lines to harass and help my boyos get in the front.

Almost nobody knows how to flank, though. They all just go in through the front. Bizarre. With the recent changes, flanking has become hugely more viable. No more tunnel networks so that defenses can only be built near FOBs and THs, and need supplies in them to prevent decay.

This means you can't just spam defenses everywhere. Turtling is of limited usefulness. So there is literally always a way around. Just go around the town and attack from a different side. I think it will take people some getting used to this idea, that you can now always flank. But it's been a huge improvement, breathed a lot of life into the game.

I'm gonna hop on again. Really hard to describe the appeal of this game or get people interested... it's something totally unique in gaming right now, though. Maybe watching Twitch streamers? That's what got me to buy it. Screenshots convey so little. https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Foxhole
