I won't be skeptical until I have seen gameplay footage of the RTS engine. Then, when it is revealed, it will probably be bad, but I hope any company making a new RTS today will be successful as it is my favorite genre.

How is Thumbleweed? Kinda want to see what Ron Gilbert's been up to, as long as the nostalgia tripping isn't too over the top. Also thinking about trying Full Throttle when I get the time. Never played it before and the theme doesn't really do it for me, but I keep hearing that it's super underrated

Guess I'll dump some good ones off the top of my head:
If you liked DoTT you should check out the remaster of Grim Fandango, excellent classic adventure
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream
Primordia is excellent. Postapocalyptic robots. Most Wadget Eye games are good, although some of them are pretty dry. Resonance and Gemini Rue are definitely up there
Daedalic is a little more hit and miss with their games imho, but Edna & Harvey and Deponia might be up your alley
Culpa Innata is weird as fuck but kinda interesting
The Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder isn't amazing but still worth checking out if you want an atmospheric Lovecraftian detective story
The Slaughter: Act 1 is neat but short
The Cat Lady
Red Comrades Save the Galaxy is simultaneously broken garbage and a true masterwork, perhaps even better than Monkey Island 2

Thimbleweed is showing real promise. It's a modern adventure game and has learned from past annoyances, keeping focus on puzzles. Seems dynamic so far and keeps things lively. Not as funny as I'd like though. But it's solid. Lot of jokes based on the genre itself. Won't say what because it would give them away but there's a lot there.

Sounds like I should really give Primordia a spin.

I've been watching plays of Space Station 13: Colonial Marines, and damn, someone must have spent a lot of time on this. It's pretty much a complete remake, almost as complete as Lifeweb.
There's still a few legacy artefacts from SS13, like slipping on wet floors, lol. One game, the marines arrived in the colony, and the first thing they did was start mopping up all the blood.
Really unpredictable, too, once the Marines found a dancing xenomorph, so they made friends with it and sent in back to the Sulaco on the dropship, and apparently they got as far as a chaplain trying to teach it before the shooting started.
One specialist seemed to be trying to dual-wield riot shields.
Once the entire Delta Squad mutinied and tried to take over the ship.
Once the Weyland Yutani consultant managed to sabotage the supermatter reactor within two minutes of waking up, so they were trying to eject the core before the marines were even briefed.
Once the player got bored and drunk himself unconscious with tequila, woke up after apparently missing a major battle, went into a fight with a bad hangover, got facehugged THREE TIMES, drunk himself unconscious again in an attempt to kill the chestburster while everyone made triplets jokes, and managed to get himself to the Sulaco's medical centre in time to be completely ignored by the staff until he exploded all over them, but I guess they felt bad about it because they cloned him just in time for him to go into battle again and die for good. I think by that time the officers were reduced to sending the dropship down and bringing it up again with an alien on board and trying to kill them one by one. All the squad leaders had died so the player answered a recruitment drive, went to the war room and volunteered by telling them "I CAN USE FULL SENTENCES AND I AM NOT AFRAID OF SQUIRRELS SIR!" and they just said "You're hired!". The Sulaco had managed to completely run out of pulse rifle ammo, so it was all submachine guns and shotguns for the Bolivian Army ending. Apart from the player, who had wisely conserved his ammo through first drunken unconsciousness, then temporary death.

I wonder if anyone will do an Alien: Isolation mod? Or Doom…

There were a few projects to try and make a 3D SS13 game, but the atmospheric physics always proved to be a killer to program.

I think if they release dev tools for Alien: Isolation or Hellion it could work, or one of the better-looking voxel based games, like 7 Days To Die.

Howdy /vg/.

Long story short after 15 years on a shit laptop I've finally been able to make a computer that can play games

What do you think are games that are must plays for someone who basically hasn't been able to play real games? Particularly looking for good mods (as I've never been able to mod before) and bonus points if it's local co op

Keep in mind I've still been playing on consoles so please don't recommend like HL2 as if it's actually a good modern game. No disrespect but cmon, compare HL2 to Portal 2 today and there's no comparison

This is a first person semi-stealth game. The key is that it gives you a lot of cool powers. You teleport around, stop time, take possession of dudes, and a bunch more. The amount of options you have in this game make it a lot of fun, and very replayable. The story is lackluster, but the setting looks amazing. It was actually designed by the same guy who did the design work on Half Life 2, believe it or not. Despite that, its storytelling mechanism with the Chaos system is pretty interesting. I recommend not using quicksave too often, because it's a really cool experience to play it more continuously, especially when aiming for a Low Chaos run.

>Crysis/Crysis: Warhead
They're pretty old by now, but they're definitely my favorite single player FPS games. At the time, they represented the pinnacle in graphics, so they still look pretty good. But it's the gameplay that's the real star in this game; you're your standard soldier type (yeah, the story is ridiculously B) but you have an advanced suit of power armour that basically turns you into a superhero. Or the Predator. Like Dishonored, you have a really broad range across which to play this game. In Crysis, you do stuff yourself that in normal FPS games your character only does in cutscenes.

For decades Zelda in terms of plot progression never seems to leave its creatively bankrupt box of ideas. Every game usually boils down to either

>Ganon is back stab that fucker to death
>A follower/reincarnation of Ganon's essence is trying to resurrect its perfect form go stab that fucker to death

Even Breathe of the Wild with its Open World mechanic its still just gonna boil down to this again which baffles me into believing this shit will sell a million copies. Don't even pretend that this game is incapable of leaving its world because we've seen this game transition from Wooden Boats to Steam Power in terms of both tug boats and fucking trains.

When are we going to slowly start introducing the idea of fire arms into the zelda universe? I'm not saying give Link a gun i'm saying have a villain whose montra is to make Swords seem obsolete in the world of Hyrule by introducing Rifles and Gattling Guns so firearms you'd normally see from the years 1860 namely.

C'mon it wouldn't be that bad of any idea

>If you're talking about gameplay, I always figured it's because Zelda 2 deviated from the path early on, and was less well received.

This is true, but the funny thing about it is that modern Zelda games have more in common with Zelda 2 than they do the original game. The talking to people, visiting towns, upgrading your magic, etc. I guess it could even be argued that most 3D Zelda combat takes some philosophies from Zelda 2. Especially with enemies like Stalfos or the Iron Knuckles.

Zelda 2 may not be a fondly remembered game by a lot of people, but I think it's more influential than those people believe. I also think it's a great game, but hey what do I know.

Recently, I got an Dell Inspirion 7000 series laptop from Best Buy that was pre-packaged with a NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPU. They claim on the web page that this GPU contains 4gb of VRAM, despite the 1050 supposedly only having 2gb. I thought this was either a typo or perhaps even a marketing ploy and was expecting this PC to ship with only 2 gigs when it arrived at my door; which was fine with me. I double checked using a program called GPU-Z as seen in this screenshot. I also checked the video card's specs again by running DOOM's performance test mode in-game. Once again, it confirmed 4GB of VRAM. This is only the gtx 1050, not the 1050 ti. So do this GPU come with the extra memory for inspirion laptops only? Maybe something is causing a false reading? I've never encountered this before and every source I've heard from on the topic seems to be contrary to the evidence presented.

liquid cooling will never be worth the potential risk to fail or damage the hardware. worthless overpriced gimmick unless youre running a nuclear reactor.

There's like, zero risk unless you're buying shit-tier components or you're a complete mongoloid who can't figure out match the right fittings to the tube's diameter and you cock up the o-ring installations. You're more likely to experience something like a Pump Failure before an actual leak if you take the time and set up the loop properly.

>"gaming laptops" are for pretentious faggots

No. There is overhead in getting a second computer. Gaming laptops are for people who can afford to spend 600 bucks more on a laptop, but can't afford to spend 1200 more on their desktop and a some kind of little netbook.

Gaming laptops are shit though, don't buy them. At least they have full GPUs now instead of cut-down low power variants.
Actually good cards like the 550 and 660 were strong performers in their day. The mobile versions of them were like half as good, and no cheaper. Now they're the same chips.

Basically this. I have a gaming laptop (HP Omen) that was pretty expensive, but I needed a laptop and a desktop.
I regret it now though, not because the performance isn't good, because it performs great, but I kinda wish I had just gotten a nice desktop setup and bought a $150 laptop from a pawn shop. The parts in my laptop aren't gonna last forever. But for now, they're great.
