SC is F2P now; thanks, Blizzard.

>Excluding the campaigns, all of the game is free. Everyone gets Wings of Liberty, the first campaign, for free.

If you already own WoL, you get Heart of the Swarm. No free upgrades to the Legacy of the Void campaign, though.

All of the custom games, arcade, and multiplayer is free at the Legacy of the Void level. The only two catches are that ranked multiplayer is locked away until you get 10 "First Win of the Day"s and after that, you have it forever, and you can only level like 3 basic Coop Commanders to level 5 or whatever until you buy the commanders.

The only things you ever pay for are the campaigns if you want them and Coop Commander stuff.

Also Starcraft: Remastered version is $15, adds modern resolutions and shit, but if you want just original out of the box Brood War it's free ( https://us.shop.battle.net/en-us/product/starcraft )

Finished episode 3. Had to tell Rachel the truth about her dad being in cahoots with Damon, didn't want her to have her keep on being lied to. Was surprised by how well Before the Storm turned out to be and expanding on who Rachel was and how Chloe became who she was.

I was just bumping the thread since the trailer is out.

I opted not to play it tbh, since it's only an emotional wank not contributing so much to the story other than things we already know. Not a bark at people who will play it tho, I probably would if I had more cash and better download-speed.

I played through Before the Storm right now, and I just gotta say, it was a bit of a letdown. The voice acting is pretty shoddy, Rachels parents being the breaking point for me. Everyone sounds fucking dead inside and have a 5 second break inbetween every fucking word, goddamn. And the whole Chloe/Rachel thing was the most boring part of the whole game for me, without dropping spoilers, the whole storyline was pretty obvious and I managed to guess most of it already on episode one.

It wasn't complete shite tho, it managed to keep me hooked enough to play through all three episodes, but I felt it lacked a lot of the good writing and voice-acting that was in the first game. And my biggest gripe, why not focus more on people like Frank? I guess everyone has their favourites, but I really do feel like it's a tease when they start to zoom in on the background and relationship between certain people but without any real pay off.

I couldnt care less about this at this point. The original Life is Strange was an amazing story and a great game. I loved it so much I considered it my GOTY. Before the Storm is such a pile of shit. I didn't give a single fuck about Chloe and Rachel's story considering we all know how it ends. Also the quality in voice acting and story telling was way worse in BTS.

Maybe I just want Max and the whole time travel thing back again. Without any of that, I really couldnt get into BTS.

There are already rumors of the next console generation, which will probably be around 2020. Is it gonna suck as much as this generation? How will it affect pc gaming? I don't think there's enough money in this world to fund a "next next gen" AAA game -- "next gen" AAA games are already too expensive, with too many compromises to the gameplay and too little a difference from games from the last generation. Anyway, what are your thoughts?

There is also a growing misunderstanding of what the point/advantages of console gaming is, which I'd say goes hand in hand with that idea you're proposing. I could see Microsoft trying that though since they've also been out of touch with what consoles are.

If they're not done, then they're certainly gonna be around longer. We're 5 years into current gen, when normally a generation lasts like 5-6 years. But I think the ps3 and xbox360 both lasted like 7 or 8 years or some shit. If I'd guess, I'd say the current generation will last longer than that. Considering they're putting a lot into the upgraded versions I imagine they're planning to stay around in this gen for a while.

Doki Doki Literature Club got me interested in this genre and, while I've had to weed through a ton of shit, I liked Katawa Shoujo and I just discovered HuniePop. HuniePop sold me in the first 20 minutes when I got to Audrey. She asked if I wanted to get high sometime then (in real life) I said "Niiiiice" because I would never expect there to be a character who gets high in a game like this. I selected the 'Erryday' option in response. She immediately said "Niiiiice" the exact same way I said it and I laughed for like 30 seconds straight.

Any others y'all could recommend?

Age of empires was amazing when I was around 12 and didn’t know too much about history. Now with all the remastered Age of empires games coming out (and the elusive AoE4 lurking in the shadows) I was looking forward to playing that series again.

But whenever I watch someone mass like war chariots as the Romans and actually win because that’s apparently a viable strategy, it just makes me sad. Where are the velites, hastati, principes and triarii? Age of empires seems more like Starcraft with an ancient unit theme and age up mechanics, then a game actually designed to model ancient warfare.

Even AoE 2 hd feels a lot more realistic in trying to model medieval warfare because at least (due to economic constraints and hard counters) it usually forces you to build a more mixed force and it’s a little harder to win by simply massing the most cheesy OP unit.

How can you be good at cooking but shite at dancing? Cooking requires a much higher level knowledge of complimentary flavours and of the quirks of your oven than dancing.

Total war isn't an RTS is the salient point here. You can pause it on most difficulty settings. It has a turn based strategic map too so it's a hybrid and that's where all the UBER MICRO will not save you

Uber micro basically is dwarfed by strategy and tactics in those games just because of how slowly all the units respond and how much they get stuck engaged together.

Multiplayer in total war is pretty boring. Because everyone will being the most OP unit combination and sometimes due to lack of balance the battle is already decided by the army composition.

This is especially bad in Warhammer where CA is too lazy to implement a fair army building sysrem like in the actual Tabletop game, where you have a limited number of heroes and specia elite units (which otherwise get spammed)

Now on the other hand, Head to Head Multiplayer Campaign is a wholenother story. Because of economical restrictions and lack of special buildings players are forced to build much more realistic balanced armies and the battles themselves actually gain a lot of meaning, for example you can sometimes lose a battle but win a strategic victory that will actually lead to you winning the campaign, not to mention the strategic campaign layer becomes much more interesting when you are fighting a human opponent.

You said it yourself, in AOE you can just make a bazillion of the strongest units and be mostly fine, I usually get away with using only 2 different types of units, but Total War has a whole extra layer to it with the map and the diplomacy and the trade routes. Just not as simple

Must've been the biggest mistake I've done when it comes to gaming-purchases.

Bought the Starter-Edition with three of my friends, and we had a real blast for months!
Blasting through walls and Doors and catching the (more or less) intelligent placed Terrorists off-guard was all fun till it lasted.

Soon we hit the fucking grind-wall, because the Starter-Edition only gives you enough Renown for maybe 3-4 Operators.

Still too many Operators to unlock, every single of them needed to get an efficient Team going (especially when playing online and everyone is grabbing your fav OP away!).

So we have a grind-wall in a 60.- game now, years later still not unlocked HALF of the Operators available, the cost to unlock new operators still hasn't gone down and UbiCock wants you to pay 30.- for EACH Season-Pass (would be 90.- for all by now!), to unlock Renown faster.

Thinking about hacking the game,
but not want to risk getting a ban.

Anyone play this? I figured it was a good time for a thread cause there's a new version coming out in a few hours.

If you've never heard it before, it's kinda like mechwarrior crossed with battlefield. You play as a team, cap points and try to get kills. You can play as either mechs, infantry, tanks or aircraft. It's actually a crysis wars mod but the devs have bundled it with the demo so it's basically just a free game.

You can grab the installer from here if you wanna check it out: https://mechlivinglegends.net/
