Looks like the last thread stopped bumping. >>732168

Still playing Rad, this game has an awesome stylized feel to it that seems to be congruent throughout.

I grew up with MM64 and am a little biased in preferring the controls and I miss the crisper graphics, but I'll play the PS1 version of Legends every time just for the credits song which is just replaced with the flutter music or something like that in 64.
Also the N64 version is the first example I think of when I think of terrible draw distance, you can only see like a foot in front of Mega Man.

Got a SNES a week or so ago, I've mostly been playing Secret of Mana and Donkey Kong Country 3.
I never beat either of these games when I was a kid, good god DKC3 is sadistic in the later levels.

Rage 2 is fun. I heard it described as doom 2016 in an open world and that's a fair assessment. Combats real tight I just wish there was more loot variety, being restricted to a weapon wheel in an open world game feels strange but the upgrade trees for each one sort of make up for it. There's a ton of color and it's visually very nice but feels like a borderlands 2 knock off a lot of the time.

Is Path of Exile the true Diablo 3?

So, there are some guys I know who are trying to convince me, I should finally try Path of Exile, since I am totally burned and disappointed by Diablo 3.

But I am really not sure, since my rather slow internet takes maybe 6 hours to download,
and I am not sure if its worth my time.

Many years ago I tried maybe an hour of the game, and it was totally laggy, buggy and not nearly as fluid and addicting as Diablo 2 or Torchlight. The style was barebones and unappealing to me, everything played and looked like a bad beta of a game that tried to be a bad DIablo-Clone.

Did it get any better?

Why is it free? Whats the catch? And if I decide to spend money on (stash? inventory-space? Character-slots?), is it disproportionately more than paying for a 10.- copy of Diablo 2 ?

Do I even need to pay money to have fun with this game?

Can you play Coop? How good is the Coop-Play?

Whats your opinion?

Anyone still plays it? Anyone stopped playing it?
Whats your experience?

I've been no lifing the game due to quarantine recently, delirium league is ending soon™, if you don't know leagues run for about 3 months. Delirium = kill monsters fast -> get more loot, last league was metamorph which was build-a-boss, before that blight which was tower defense. Usually if a league is popular the mechanic it adds gets incorporated into the core game, like there is a 10% chance to find metamorphs or blights in maps.
I've played so much that being in delirium feels normal now, I'm worried next league maps will feel too empty without a bazillion monsters jumping out of the fog

To answer some of OP's questions, I haven't played the game that long but the gameplay has come a long way over the years judging from watching videos from past leagues. Performance is still pretty garbage, especially this league with the fog but it got a big performance patch today which helped a lot on my toaster PC. There is co-op but I've never tried it, in fact I'm too much of an autist to interact with people in game so I don't even play trade league, I hear there isn't much in-game support for guilds though.You don't need to spend any money to do the "story" but you'll probably need to buy stash tabs once you get to maps. The story took me about 30 hours to get through first time though so plenty time to decide if you like it enough to spend money. If you see gameplay videos where people are blowing up whole screens of monsters at 1,000,000mph you won't be anywhere near that powerful at the end of the story, I've got more than 300 hours logged on one character this league and there are still plenty of upgrades I could get. I think I've spent about $40 on stash tabs and it's more than I actually need, half of them are full of garbage I don't know why I'm keeping.

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.

I'm still playing it, but mostly the singleplayer.
Bought the game back in 2015 on STEAM and replayed it over 100 times, the only thing I didn't liked is the content of GTA online that could been better on singleplayer, but Rockstar screwed it over with their new policies of ignoring the Singleplayer in favor of Online.

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 haven't played sports games since ps1/ps2 era when I was younger. They were a lot of fun, and started craving that again now.

Looking at all the 2020 games released they look like mostly trash, espeically NBA 2k20.

Can someone recommend some of their standouts from years past? Currently going to suss out NBA 2k14. I'm not fussed about having updated rosters or anything, more interested in fun gameplay or game modes - in particular the career modes.

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?

I played the freeware version right after playing the original, back before the Steam and Xen releases. It was great. Gun feel in the original wasn't mindblowing either, so I don't think there was much difference.

Black Mesa is shit. The Marine AI is so fucking stupid that they'll just stand with cover between you and them and unload their guns into it forever. Even the fucking AI in the original game had better pathfinding than this. Hell, Goldeneye 64 enemies had better pathfinding. Look how they massacred my boys.

It's definitely the prettiest game ever on the Source engine but if you want to play a fun action game, stick with the original Half-Life.

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.

It's the only rogue-lite I have any love for and is very, very arcadey. If it were a real arcade cabinet I'd have lost like 50 dollars in quarters to it. I've played it for over 200 hours and I still haven't seen all the content. It's fucking magical and addictive and awesome.

Truly a 10/10 game and the greatest twin-stick shooter I've ever seen. The soundtrack is fucking banging, too. Play this shit. Give the devs your money.
