To be fair, there's also a handful of ROMs, and it costs a third of the competition. still crap, but 20 for online is better than 60.

Playing Black Mesa now.
It looks and sounds incredibly beautiful,
but the gunplay is so weak and bad.
Says a lot, that the gluon-gun is the only one with a really good gun-feel.

But gunplay was never the strong part about HL, wasn't it?

>Duke Nukem A time to Kill

When I started this game i wasn't really sure what I was getting myself into. While the game at least runs better than Land of the babes and is more visually appealing, it still a clunky experience with awkward shooting. Heavy on the platform and quite punishing too. Mess up and its game over. Huge maps, with fairly similar textures all around so its very easy to get lost. Look for a number of keys to open the exit door, rinse and repeat. Music doesnt change all that much either, so you're looking at 4 to five levels of the samt OST playing on repeat for hours. Land of the babes might have been an ugly mess, but at least it was more fun.

Yeah I just wanted to know, and I think Manhattan project is still the best Duke Nukem Game to ever come out on a console. I think I've tried them all except for the mobile Games. Worst by far was the Duke Nukem Game on the Gameboy Advance. That was Horrible experience.

Man, I'm I glad to be done with this shit. I think im gonna go play The Misadventures of Tron Bonne Just to heal for a bit. I've been saving that one for a while and I think its time.

>The Misadventures of Miss Tron Bonne

This absolute gem of a game. I love everything about it. I really like that it doesn't necessarily fit into any Genre, So the game doesn't get old like Megaman Legends, which it kinda did for me close to the end. I really enjoy this lovable Villain, Who really cares about her family and the Servebots. One of the things that I find really unique about it is how you start to get to know the Servebots personally the more you delve into the game. You stop Seeing them as just numbers, and each one is special to you in his own way. By far, I love #35, #40, and #7. Sure, you can name them, why do that when you can get to know them just the way they are.

Battle Royale is the most pleb genre their currently is. Saying "play on a competitive level" is an unfair quantifier you can put to everything on earth.

OP, Fallout 76. If it comes down to those 2, take Fallout 76. New Dawn is more of a DLC than a new game. Fallout 76 has a lot of bad, but if you loved fallout 4 and can over look the negative of 76, you will love it probably. Had a buddy get it for $10 and loved it.

I guess... But it's an interesting genre because it appeals to complete casuals as well as hardcores.

I hate when people talk shit on Battle Royale. I love Battle Royale. I've sunk thousands of hours into RPG games and I'm about as hardcore as it gets. And I've sunk probably a thousand hours into surviv.io and now PUBG.

As for fortnite... Can't stand the aesthetic. Ugly ass game and all the weapons seem really boring and the same. And the build-spamming never looked much fun to me.

I played Battle Royale games in the 90s before they were known as battle royales. They are a lack of creativity and ingenuity to me. Nothing special to them really. Just a big death match with a closing circle. Didn't the PUBG guy say H1Z1 stole the idea from him?

It's free because they just released a DLC/Season Pass dohickey. $60 CAD for two new civilizations and one new game more, with the promise of more over the next year. Seems like such a rip off: and I'm a huge fan of CIV6.

Well, it's still a free game. I'm not inclined to buy the DLC, but Civ has been fun in the past. Worth a download if you haven't played it, I'd say.

Where do you guys get your fix on news for games?

I don't flip through gaming sites too often, maybe twice a week or so. I've been getting particularly irritated by the flood of advertisement farming that I have to sift through to find anything that's actually news about new games coming out.

I don't need to know the top ten closet homo protagonists or what some streamer got banned for this week. I just want a reliable flow of "these games are coming out soon and here's some interviews with the creators."

It makes me miss magazines, because the writers had a week or more to prepare decent content, and since you paid for it there wasn't a forced ad about hip wallets or insurance every 2 paragraphs.

Suggestions much appreciated!

same shit with Assassin Creed Odyssey. He wouldn't stop frothing about the fact that you get to buy XP boost to speed up your progress and the game is almost unplayable without it. Except That wasn't true. It was no different than games like Witcher 3 which needed you to be at a certain level to continue the story and you got to that level by doing side quests. The XP boost option was there just for people who wanted to be done with the game as quickly as possible or just wanted to be Over powered. It wasn't all that expensive anyways.
But He sure made s big deal of it though, and almost convinced me not to play the game for myself. Three hours into the game I was doing just fine getting through the main quest, and I knew the fat fuck was lying and I hated him ever since.

I haven't played games in ages but I'm started to get back into it.
I really like the arcade style because it's easy to pick up and put down without too much investment. Been playing a lot of retro Sega arcade games like Crazy Taxi, Typing of the Dead, Bass Fishing. But those are all 20 years old.

Are there any newer arcade-style games out? For Windows or Android, I don't have a console. I don't like fighting/beat em up either.

Idk...a layer of armored plates and exosuit-like shock absorption...over top some kind of high-impact ballistic gel suit lined with lead? I imagine with every bullet, hit, and hard landing; The outer orange and grey metal plates deflect and protect, and the gel layer beneath absorbs the shock, preventing internal trauma. However, as it sustains more impacts, the gel loses its "potency" and needs to be recharged at one of those HEV stations. When its out of batteries, the user is still protected to a degree by the plating, but will begin to sustain fractures and bruising as the gel has lost its integrity.

I assume the thing on the back (from the original hl1 suit) is what houses the systems for Oxygen/Automatic medical assistance. Probably well insulated too, as Gordon can be observed surviving electric currents that would instantly gib a lesser scientist.

Despite being a piece of industrial equipment, there is also some intriguing design choices related to combat, like ammunition readouts. Maybe that's handy if you use a nailgun or micropinner on a jobsite, but it seems like they were planning on implementing a combat model of the HEV suit, and this was a civilian prototype. Both the PCV from Opposing Force and Standard-Issue Combine Soldier armor works in a similar fashion with their own respective recharge stations. Peculiar...

I don't think the suit can fix fractures, but maybe it has some sort of system in place to detect and scan fractures, administer morphine, and the gel "molds" itself appropriately to comfortably set the fractured bones and hold them in place firmly, like a super advanced version of a cast or splint that allows you to still use a fractured limb comfortably, but its the suit that is doing the heavy lifting.

The suit's "voice" seems to only mention Morphine, but I think it's likely that it can flood the user with a cocktail of stimulants, painkillers, and steroids to send the body into overdrive; ensuring you can survive long enough to escape danger and seek better medical attention. There's also probably a tank to hold a sizeable reserve of transfusion-ready blood that matches the user's blood type. I imagine it would be administered with a series of syringes that inject directly into the muscles surrounding your spine, responding appropriately to fluctuating health/vital readouts.

Honestly I want one, you have any idea how easy my job would be? It'd be like being a human/forklift hybrid.

Thing is, if this were a real thing...over use would probably cause the occupant's muscles to wither and atrophy, like what backbraces end up doing to people with scoliosis. Black Mesa better have good health coverage...Gordon would be at the clinic every damn day.

..or maybe Gordon is just yolked af, because something like this would require both the intense training and physical prowess of an Astronaut or Fighter pilot. Hardly something you can achieve in a 15 minute training orientation.

I want to create an ambient soundscape centered around video game console menu themes. So far I play the ps2 menu theme at 100% and the gamecube menu theme at 30% and it makes for some really nice background relaxation noise. My project currently is to make a soundscape that is about 4 hours long that weaves in and out, playing all sorts of faint pleasant sounds with different themes. These sounds do not have to be limited to video games, every suggestion is welcome and appreciated lol. If it fits the bill its worth it.

Andy ideas???

Bonus: Will post some mixes tomorrow for you all to enjoy. Thanks guys 😁

It's alright. H1C sp and mp are decent enough. The anniversary graphics are kind of jank and IMO don't really fit the style all that well. I think there are also some relatively minor issues with the Classic graphics, but for $10 or less it's fine.
