It's also super-boring.

I know there are people who haven't put in serious time in any of the characters. One way to fix this is the Arcade Mode Random Heroes mode. A lot of it comes down to luck, but that means you can blame RNG and not your shitty team. Then just try and use each character as best you can. Also encourages you to play more conservatively, because when you die you lose all progress toward your ult. So charging your ult to full in that mode can be a huge advantage, because rarely can it be countered.

Contrary to the Blizzard hype, the "rock paper scissors" balance just doesn't really exist in this game since mechanical skill equalizes everything. Sure, McCree's a hard counter to Pharah on paper but that doesn't mean dick when the guy playing McCree can't aim for shit and refuses to switch off to let someone else get the job done.

In my opinion, you're better off "maining" a hero for 10 hours at a time rather than constantly switching off whenever you fail. You really do need to put time into each hero to get the most out of them and the experience alone of all the ways the other team is countering you is invaluable and helps you understand the balance and meta. Even knowing your own limitations will allow you to counter the same hero on the other team when they mess up and over-play. This is something you'll never really pick up on if you're constantly switching after 5 minutes of playtime because you never give yourself that chance to learn from your mistakes and grow.

You need to remember that Overwatch is an FPS, not a MOBA.

I think people learn and have fun differently. I play a few different heroes in each role and play those depending on how Im feeling/what my team needs. Playing the same hero every game regardless of what your/enemy team picks is a good way to lose and get your teammates raging.

This is a shitty argument. You're assuming shit I never said. And I never said that switching every five minutes is the best way to play. I said "maining" characters at any point other than high level play is retarded, because the way the game is balanced requires a certain flexibility from the players. This isn't TF2. The characters have unique skillsets, and they do not mutate.

And regardless of your insistence on skill, that's not going to make Junkrat's bombs work against that Phara. That's the entire point. No healer in your squad? You're not going to help the situation by sticking to your "main", because no manner of skill is going to make you magically heal your teammates. And there's nothing worse than sitting in some random grab-ass team, and one of your teammates is being useless at a class he's "maining".

"Maining" is bullshit. Playing the same character for 10 hours at a time is bullshit. Shit, that'd mean you'd need to play 230 hours (240, after the next update) to get experience with every character. That's a pretty manly amount of playtime for anyone who isn't mainlining the game. And what do you do when your "main" is already taken? Jump ship and look for another match?

The game simple isn't built for it. You're telling me it isn't a MOBA, and I'm telling you it isn't TF2. And even in TF2 people would shit on faggots who'd "main" Sniper or Spy.

I completely forgot the switch was being released soon. I assume most other gamers are the same because the switch is shit. They should have called it Wii3 because it's gonna fail just as much as Nintendos last 2 consoles.

I dunno, it's got good hype and has new zelda as a launch title. I don't remember the wii u launch having this much positive hype or any serious launch titles.

>last two consoles
wait so what's the other one that failed? the wii 1 and 3ds sold like crazy. their foray into mobile gaming has been lucrative so far as well. you can dislike nintendo that's your right, but you not liking them doesn't mean they're less successful. of course a year down the line the hype might cool off and it'll just be known as "that console with the new zelda and mario on it and nothing else". But it's a little early to tell. I'm optimistic about it.

One thing similar between all 3 of the console's launch titles is that there is only 1 or 2 games that everyone was expecting to get while the rest was niche. I don't see how the Switch's is any worse. I mean is this the mindset people have since Steam? does everyone desire market saturation now days?

BF1's singleplayer is just a glorified tutorial for multiplayer; you go through a plane story, a tank story, a sentry kit story, and a one man army story - it's not a particularly interesting campaign besides the intro.

Titanfall 2's campaign however is excellent. Solid storytelling mixed with innovative level design with a nice balance between pilot and titan combat.

If you have to pick a singleplayer story to play through first, Titanfall 2 is the better choice. BF1 has a handful of goofy missions in its campaign that kind of break up the intensive pace it starts off with.

Exactly what it should be. The BF games don't need SP campaigns. When people expect one it leaves much less time to focus on the multiplayer, which is all a BF game is. Anyone who thinks differently can cash me outside.

They could also focus hard on the multiplayer, price it down slightly, and use the SP team to the team to develop a single-player game with the same engine. Price that down as well. Battlefield One and Battlefield One: Singleplayer Nonsense. Bundle them together for the price of a full game or offer each separately for a slightly increased price than if you bought them together. I dunno. There are other ways, it seems like.

If your opposed to pirating your going to find your options kind of limited when it comes to actually free fps games with single player campaigns. Now if its just you want low spec fps games then there's plenty of those to play. Depending on your sensibilities.

Trying to really think the vast majority of the stuff out there is geared around multiplayer. Have you thought about even emulating and playing some of those? The n64 has a handful of surprisingly good fps games. And project 64 isn't bundled with a bunch of trash software anymore.

When I get that shooter itch probably one of my favorites ever is perfect dark. You really can get a lot of fun out of that. And there's the challenges, good bots to play against. It's really a hell of a game. And it holds up quite well. If you happen to just want a decent amount of low spec required fps games though op let me know. Sorry brother, but you asked for something super specific.

So, according to this thread, OP's options currently include:

1 - Fiddling with some console commands to restore/slightly enhance blood effects (it wasn't clear from the OP, but if there is NO BLOOD AT ALL one might want to try setting violence_ablood , violence_agibs , violence_hblood , and violence_hgibs all to 1)

2 - Installing something like SMod and disabling/editing out unwanted aspects (or re-coding from scratch)

3 - Doing nothing/playing Half Life 1

And you've added:
4 - Whining about a completely unrelated game
-----

As far as speculation about half life 3 (or whatever they wind up calling the next installment): if it weren't for a potential intellectual property snarl with Gearbox, I've always thought it'd be neat if they revealed midway through the game that you're actually playing as Corporal Shephard, brought out of stasis by the Gman in a last-ditch effort to recapture Gordon Freeman. At the very least, it'd be a way to write themselves out of the hole they were left in at the end of Ep. 2.

I recently visited a family member I hadn't seen in a while, and most of our time together was spent drinking and playing games like Bad News Baseball, Arch Rivals, NBA Jam, Caveman Games, and Mutant League Football. It was good to reconnect over games like these, and it was just a really fun time.

Do you guys have any other games like these you'd recommend? Just sorta goofy, pick up and play, competitive sports games? They don't have to be retro games like I listed here. Really I would love to play anything else in the same sort of vein.

I played yesterday for two or three hours and was shocked at how many people there were. This might have been because it was 6pm eastern US versus my usual 1am-3am, but it was glorious. Since adding player made bases they've pretty much stuck to perfecting game flow and feel, and I have to say the combat and all that jazz is polished as fuck.

The next biggest change planned is something called combined arms operations or something? I read the news on their website but am still kind of unsure exactly what it's going to be. They're also supposed to be fixing the way vehicles maneuver on inclines, as well as giving vehicles a larger role in capturing bases by having more vehicle capture points which seems pointless and might potentially ruin shit.

What they need to do is fix more fundamental flaws.

1) They should make it so you have to hack a terminal as an infiltrator to capture a point just as in planetside 1.

2) Remove classes, base jet pack/rocket launcher use on the armor you choose, have one single skill tree instead of a separate one for each class/armor type.

3) Warp gates that actually work. Planetside 1 each faction had a personal island with a warp gate that the enemy couldn't get to. You warped to other continents by being in control of two warpgates adjacent to each other on separate continents.

Basically they need to do pretty much everything exactly how it was in the first planetside just on the new game engine. They made all of these dumb, immersion breaking, complexity breaking changes for planetside 2 because they thought more people would play if it was a simpler game. Lo and behold, they're loyal fanbase from ps1 said fuck this dumb shit, and anyone else doesn't play for long.

The port kind of sucked. IDK about the main game cause I only played like 20 minutes before giving up and replaying MGS3, which was a better port.
In retrospect, the MGS1: Twin Snakes port was probably worse but I lack the patience I had back then.
Side note: It's also possible that the console's 'never online' firmware version was a contributing factor to the game running poorly. The last firmware update I got was the one that shipped on the Catherine disk.

Tiberian Sun's music was pretty great.

Made an RTS sound like a survival horror game.

I'll start with Black Knight Sword. Design wise, this is pretty much 16-bit action platformer. It doesn't really cater to modern gamers, in the sense that while it does add modern conveniences, it manages to stay true to the spirit of typical 16-bit games.

You have a lives system and if you use a continue option to restart a level you're on, you lose all of your upgrades. You can save at checkpoints, but all of your status is saved at that checkpoint too, including how many lives you have left. So if you have zero lives left at a checkpoint you've saved, I hope you get familiar enough with the game to complete a no death run of it, if you don't want to risk losing your precious upgrades.

It's difficult as shit, the levels and design are incredibly varied the deeper you get into it, the combat is satisfying as hell, and oh god those boss fights are just amazing, both visually and mechanically. Add on top of it all an art style that emulates a stage play, enemy designs that are a cross between fairy-tale book art and Dark Souls, and a soundtrack that's just as dark and fucked as you'd imagine, and this game is an instant classic, in my eyes.

Plus, coming from Grasshopper Manufacture, it's not afraid to get weird. When you're playing a legitimately amazing bullet hell shooter level riding atop the back of a giant chicken, or literally being raped by a particular enemy, you'll likely know that you'll never really see anything like this elsewhere.

tl;dr, it's an amazing, weird, difficult action platformer that you should try if you haven't. Plus it's cheap, going for 10 bucks on PSN and XBLA.

What other games do you guys have that you thought were amazing, but no one really played? The more obscure, the better. inb4 someone posts something from the Obscure series.

Exploding sock puppets.

Obtaining Hyrens in that game was so damn satisfying. I also remember it having two endings one where you save the old man in that hellish dungeon and the other if he ends up dying. Great times.

Old thread stopped bumping. My copy of Pokemon Moon is delayed till Friday so I picked up Metal Gear Rising again to practice for my Revengeance difficulty playthrough to kill the time. I wouldn't mind if they used a modified version of the combat system for Nier: Automata because it's so good. Platinum makes awesome games.

Anyone playing the ghost recon wildlands open beta? It's not an amazing game but the customization, amount of people using mics, and sandboxiness of the game is pretty damn fun. Also the game is beautiful other than maybe the enemy muzzle flashes.

If this game had some kind of PVP that would great.

I'm playing it, and i'm having a blast playing with my friends, doing dumb shit like parachuting out a helicopter that's barley above ground level, or even the high speed super Special Forces soldier stuff.

If they wanted a buy, they got one from me. It may not be day one, but i'm gonna get it at least a week or 2 after it comes out.

If anyone wants to play on the PC i'm down.

Lineup for the upcoming while:
God Hand
Berserk and the Band of the Hawk
Lara Croft GO
Limbo
Inside
Shadow Tower
Toy Story 2 PS1

Also got a PSP 1000 shipping soon to use as a PS1/emulation handheld. Hopefully the battery isn't too fucked, but it looks to be in pretty immaculate condition. Used to have one back in the day and it ruled. Plus I haven't owned a handheld since the DSi, so pretty excited for this thing to get here. Definitely plan on staying busy for 2017.

Yeah I'm buying as well. Didn't think I would but it's just a great sandbox shooter. If I could knife kill or something a bit more similar to MGS id be in heaven. I'm playing on PC. Shit looks utterly beautiful on ultra settings in 1440p

Playing coop is fuckingtastic!
Did a LAN-Party last weekend with 3 guys running BD on a loop! :-D
Starterpack is the shit for that!

Here is a quick set-up for coop-servers if anyone is interested:

Is someone here who can change music-tracks of Doom? (Slade, wav or MP3)
