Finally, we have some gameplay (not much but that seems pretty par for the course for Kojima trailers) and a release date of November 8th

Thoughts? Personally I think it looks pretty good from what's been shown so far. Also lol at the name Die-Hardman

Been playing the Bannerlord closed beta.

Has me super pumped - it's Warband in 2020, what more could you ask for? Movement and combat feel a lot smoother, and the animations and ragdolls are great too. Horses feel so much better, no coming to a complete stop because you clipped a tree. Still a little bit of general wonkiness, but that's to be expected.

Can't wait to play the singleplayer though, With mods this game is going to steal hundreds if not thousands of hours of my life and I cannot wait.

What game gets your inner tactical rollin'?

For a while it was Siege for me, until I tried SWAT 3 and 4 and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfare in Coop,
and Siege just looked like an overhyped breed between Call of Duty and Overwatch to me.

Heck, I even remember playing Rogue-Spear some years ago!
These were the times!

Insurgency is my go to for a tactical realism. It doesn't have a single player campaign, but you really won't find a more immersive experience, I mean it's so real the sounds and the sheer intensity of the firefight. Anyway, the realism forces you to use tactics if you want to win.

Guys, this game is amazing.


It was made by the same people who made the original "Quest" games (Quest for Glory etc) and it's just great, albeit a bit simple.
The atmosphere, the story is really great, and the fact it's sort of a point and click rpg, plays out really well.
Can any of you recommend me more games like this? I only played the older adventure games like Syberia or Monkey Island before this one, and it's fucking great, with the modern game engine.

Also discuss this game here if you've played it, because there's nothing on the internet about this game, though what there is is almost all positive. It's really underrated, feels like an oldschool adventure game with modern UI etc.

I'm all for piracy but don't pirate this one. Corey and Lori Ann Cole had to take out a 2nd mortgage on their house to finance the game, they chewed up the crowdfunding capital halfway through the development cycle.
Yep, that's really what kills the remake. The original is still the gold standard and the GOG build has the GK2K project (which added Windows 2000 support) baked in to it, so it works well enough on modern PCs.
Also I don't think it's possible in the remake to make your car drive off an icy road and die during the day 8/9 transition. I'm sure only like 2% of players saw that goof in the original, and probably none unintentionally, but it's the little details that matter. That's what the remake is missing, all the little flourishes, like Tim Curry's hilariously wrong attempt at a Louisiana accent. That and no Worf from Star Trek.

Idk man, the game overall is pretty good. It has to do with never playing the original as i said, but it's a good game in its own right. The only thing that's a little offputting is the weird southern accent Gabriel has. Like, I'm not even sure what to think about it. Wtf is that voice.

How do i get into this game?
I've never played these games back in the day.
Now that this is out it looks really cozy and nostalgic and stuff, so I am intrigued to play it.
However whenever I play these games, Age of Mythology, or AoE, I can't seem to get into a gameplay loop. I just can't seem to get into it. I click on stuff but the next thing always catches me off guard and it's just not very enjoyable. I play the tedious tutorial but it's really not making much of a difference in terms of not really finding how to advance or take enjoyment out of the game.
Maybe I am just retarded.
What is the aspect you guys enjoy most in these games? What's your favourite thing to do in them? Any tips for someone just starting out?

Sounds like you really just need to learn some fun tactics. Starcraft was simple. Make zergling. Make more zerglings. Drown your enemy in a literal flood of zerglings. But AOE has more varied tactics. It leaves you thinking that you should adjust your strategy to counter your opponent constantly. That doesn't win fights, though. Planning ahead and using tactics to your advantage wins.

So here's some fun tactics to try:

The persian douche.
>Be persian so your town centers cost less stone
>start wood production like normal and scout for the enemy base
>when you find the enemy base, delete your town center and build a new one 11 tiles from the enemy town center
>continue to play the game as normal, but garrison 2 villagers in your town center
Should cripple the enemy because you're stealing resources from them just by existing. You have to be willing to fight over nothing with nothing to make it work.

Tower rush
>Britons, Chinese, Spanish, Teutons all work
>from the start, only work to get resources to get to feudal age
>build 2 towers, 4 tiles apart near your enemy's wood gathering spot
I've seen the AI bankrupt itself trying to kill towers with militia.

Scout rush
>get to feudal age
>build 5 stables so the enemy base is between the stables and your base
>just keep making more scouts
This one might actually appeal to you, since you liked the zerg rush.

Hey dude, AoE2 is pretty much my favourite game in the world and I'm very psyched about the new DE version. If you're new to the game, I would highly recommend watching a couple of Youtube channels. Namely T90Official and Spirit of the Law. T90 casts a lot of professional games, which are both fun and informative to watch, whereas Spirit of the Law analyses different parts of the game, like mechanics and civilizations. ZeroEmpires also has tons of great videos but he produces little content these days; still, his old videos are good. Anyways or example here is a SotL video.


Anyways, if you're a total noob, I'd recommend just playing through some of the campaigns, maybe having a game or 2 against the AI. Eventually, you'll want to play online, and believe me, this game online is so much fucking fun. But, it's a whole new kettle of fish. Online you'll have to learn build orders, rushes, boar luring, booming, etc etc.

In the meantime, just focus on some chill SP campaigns. I love the Genghis Khan and Montezuma ones especially. Atilla's is also awesome. Anyways, learn hotkeys. These are so important to being a good player. Learn hotkeys, learn what counters what (spears > cavalry, archers > infantry, cavalry > archers, siege, etc) and watch some Youtube videos to get an idea of the strengths and weaknesses of each civ.

I gotta go now but I will happily come back later and give you a more informative post. AoE2 is quite simply the greatest game ever.

Then that should mean that Wesker spared absolutely no expense to get his hands on the G-Virus didn't he? I mean think about it Umbrella sent not one but 2 genetically enhanced Tyrants to hunt for Jill, Claire, and Leon. And they took it a step further by having both Tyrants be different from one another. Mr X is like a Prototype version of Nemesis who is a more perfected equivalent to Mr X. So they sent Nemesis who is the perfect Bio-Weapon to obsessively stalk after the harder to catch target that being Jill and Mr X the equally as dangerous but slower Bio-Weapon to slow down Claire and Leon's attempt to flee the city

Also the fact how William Burkin has turned himself into an Eldrich hellspawn something straight from Akira that keeps constantly mutating until he acquires so much gore and mass that he starts assimilating with the surrounding underground architecture

Get your words out of my mouth nigga. I will slap your shit to smithereens.
The in-game lore actually says the T-102 is as intellectually functional as a human.

There were not T-102s. There was one T-102 and some clones stolen by Wesker that have yet to be seen again.

Horizon: Zero Dawn. Just "Horizon" would suffice, I don't know why tons of games these days feel the need to add the subtitles. A Plague Tale: Innocence for example. Just A Plague Tale would sound much better

Well the last game was called red dead revolver, a game about a man named red who owns a custom, hand-crafted revolver. They put the word "dead" in the title because it rhymes.

Now red dead redemption follows a different character who is not named red, who is trying to atone for past crimes. That game does also have revolvers though.

Just wasted SIX HOURS of my weekend playing a garbage game called Layers of Fear. Epic games is giving it away on it's launcher and it's got some good reviews, so I played it. I was having a bad time, but I'm fucking stupid, so I trusted the reviews and I assumed that it'd get good eventually. It never did. I wish epic games would give me money for playing this trash. This shit was more boring than a college lecture on a monday morning.

Bioshock 2.

The ending was such absolute dogshit. I spared the black maid's life because she seemed mostly misguided in her attempts to kill me; and apparently because I spared her life the main antagonist (who I had really been looking forward to killing) was allowed to survive.

You didn't miss out on much.

But hating a video game for the story seems strange. When I want a story I read a book or watch a movie. Stories in video games are mostly forgettable, written by hacks who couldn't publish in an industry that actually respects good storytelling. I can count the number of games with legitimately interesting stories on one hand. And even then I'd be hard-pressed.

Just play games as games and ignore the idiocy that passes for a storyline. Expect utter trash. You'll generally get it.

I'm a competitive[/b ]pokemon player, it is the highest stakes most intellectually stimulating vs experience in video games, it is done on pirate websites not the actual games so it is also fast paced, highly competitive, organized, with no barrier to entry other than strategy knowledge, and free

pokemon games suck ass though and they're never going to get better, gamefreak couldn't make a passable PS vita game, nintendo literally don't understand how to use the internet, it's never gonna take off or get better or move anywhere from here (even if the national dex shit is the best thing they've ever done to the game and the new meta already looks infinitely better than Xtreme landorus edition 7th gen)

People get excited by poker games and watch streams of all sorts. I don't think it's something that can become self funding professional unless the top level sport energises the lower tiers or feeds in from them and those are a revenue stream.

A lot of it is hype and knowing your audience and how big it can truly be. The real issue is that unlike say MTG or poker you can't get a good revenue stream off lower tier players and encouraging pros doesn't help. I played a bit of MTG arena and enjoyed it, I was good enough as F2P that I could beat a lot of people but that model has lots of in app purchases that work in a way pokemon doesn't. It allows people like me to feed the whales and still enjoy themselves.

It seems to me like cheating would be way too easy and far too hard to detect. I say this as someone that totally cheated on link cable battles when I was a kid. First with gameshark, then with a brain boy which was a cartridge based save editor for pokemon games.

They made Dan intentionally and hilariously gimped. The character you use to handicap yourself to prove you're good at the game. One of his supers was always a taunt.

Not like Sakura, who is a pretty legit different spin on the shoto mechanics. Or Makoto for that matter but obviously that's a very different spin.
