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.

Ace Combat has an arcadey feel to it. Streets of Rage but you don't like beat em ups.

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?

No it wasn't. Gunplay is still just as boring as the original but at least the sound design is better. I wish the Scientists were different from each other. Listening to them banter was fun, but they all look the same. they could've at least tried to make them all look like different individuals, but I guess that would've been too much to ask or it would've been too different.

I played it, but it only reminded me that I never liked Half Life to begin with. Anyone who's a fan of the Original should definitely check it out though.

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.

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!

I get what you're saying. It's a good source if you skim right through the OPs to see what's up, but discussing anything there is an exercise in futility. They are so quick and are usually all over something once its announced, but the place is extremely toxic due to /pol/ constantly raiding the place.

I still dont think you need to go there to get the info as fast as them. I follow a bunch of Twitter account that always notify me when some thing good comes up, and I rely on Google Alert for anything that specifically interests me.

The consumer is treated well by cdpr, but they make their workers crunch like every other AAA dev. So buying games from them (like buying from other AAA devs) is kind of like buying clothes from better paying chinese sweatshops, so the question still remains: do they deserve the money?

>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.

Anyone know any good games for around 15 bucks on Epic Store? I got a coupon for 10 but I have to spend at least 15. I'm on a crappy computer right now so preferably something with low requirements

Btw you can get GTAV until tomorrow for free. They gave me a $10 coupon as well.

I somehow had a $15 coupon. Bought maneater. It's a surprisingly good game about being a mutant shark who gets revenge on the stupid humans who fucked with her and her home.

Kind of satirical, like the shark jumping onto a golf course to eat all the people on land, repeatedly turning into lightning between human snacks. But then the bloodshed looks so real, and Chris Parnell says something about how sad it is that humans keep fighting with sharks and polluting the ocean. You grow up from a baby shark all the way to a mutant monstrosity.

Forgot to mention that it's 40 bucks, so maybe out of your price range for the coupon, but IMO it's worth the 25 I paid after the coupon.

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?

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.
