Natural Selection 2 just got an update a couple of days ago and it's still a really fun game that needs more people to play it.

What's Natural Selection 2? Well it's a multiplayer only first person shooter with two sides, the Marines and the Aliens. Each team has a commander that plays the game like an RTS, so you're basically playing from a unit's perspective in a real time strategy game. Both sides have tons of up grades and very different play styles. Fucking try it out, will ya? The netcode is excellent, so playing with people from all over the world is more than alright. Australians welcome.

I'll try it out, but initial impressions are...not impressive. Why do you think it's better?

Never heard of it, but I just watched a gameplay video and I can say with 100% certainty that it's not better than NS2. Nice try though.

I like alternative history games, especially ones during the Cold War like World in Conflict which is one of my favourite RTS next to Company of Heroes. This is an FPS version of the same concept as World in Conflict. Cold War goes hot. Seems to have decent progress for a Crowdfunded game but ive never seen it be mentioned.

If its mechanically anything like RO2 which I believe also uses Unreal Engine (correct me if I'm wrong) it could be pretty neat.

OK, seriously, why did none of you assholes mention this to me?

This is one of those wonky oldschool-vein PC RPGs but with modernized delivery. Deus Ex, V:tM Bloodlines, Gothic series in its better moments, Fallout 1 & 2 in touches.

All of the factions are equally frustrating/retarded/interesting in their own unique ways. Discovery is genuinely rewarded. Running away is required for most early combat, including the most basic of enemies, making you feel absolutely defenseless until you get a small foothold in the world, like Kenshi or really any other PB game.

I got it for 20 on isthereanydeal, best money I've spent in a while. Most games bore me to shit as either being too easy or too simpleminded. I think a lot of Souls players heard this game was "Souls-like" and so expected certain mechanics to be what they're used to with a challenging game, such as needing to push the dodge button after the right frame of several animations. It's been unfairly rated as a result and I'll never trust mass-aggregation ratings again. (Yeah yeah, I was pretty dumb to trust them very much to begin with.)

It's been a while so maybe I'm giving it too much credit, though I meant more that it seemed like it was trying to do a lot of cool things that you don't often see in big-budget open world RPG gameplay, but didn't pull them off all that well

I guess it all depends on what you enjoy. It's got serious problems, but then again, rarely is combat in an action RPG actually done well. (Modern Fallouts/TES series are the most notable example of games with unenjoyable/poorly-done combat that are still remarkably successful.) And if it is, that's the focus of the entire game, such as in a Soulslike. So I don't mind the janky combat, because it gives you opportunities to try and overcome it. Mostly it kicks your ass until you find ways to exploit it. It feels like rediscovering how to play a game. This is how pretty much every game used to feel, until gameplay became so much more standardized in recent years.

And ELEX still has a lot of interesting choices to make. It's not just "emotionless or human." A lot of it comes down to balancing your own interests, the interests of others, and who you would like to impress or influence vs who you can be OK with screwing over or slighting. There aren't really any good characters or good choices, no. Many of the choices are legitimately difficult and interesting.

And finally, wandering around is very satisfying. Yes, you spend the first 15 levels running away from almost everything, but in the process you do a lot of scavenging. The pacing on rewards for exploration are timed very well, and there's always something you've missed. Far, far better than FO/TES. Also, the lack of level scaling and being able to get your ass kicked at any moment means that when you explore somewhere you shouldn't and still come out alive, you have a sense of real accomplishment.

Learned that my phone can handle DC emulation fairly well, I got reicast up and working and have a decent 8Bitdo controller I usually use for MAME anyways.

I'm looking for games to play. Having a lot of fun with Soulcalibur atm and plan to dl Shenmu in a bit but as I never owned a DC I don't know any other games for it. What would be some essential games to play? Ideally ones if you know run well on reicast but either way I'd probably figure it out pretty quickly.

Thanks guys,

I draw the line at having to glue shit back together. Plus my preferred approach to when a dog pisses on my phone isn't to be water resistant. It's to be able to pull the battery immediately, strip the phone down and clean it within 10 minutes.
I don't just want to be able to replace the battery, I want to be able to pull it. So the exam proctor can clearly see I ain't up to no shenanigans when my Google hangouts start blowing up. To take out my frustration. To tell myself to get the fuck off twitter and circlejerk. Just chuck that battery onto the carpet across the room.

Yeah, durable phones are one way to get around the absolute ballache that is trying to repair a phone from the past 4 years.

Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 are so good. I dont care what anybody says they need to make a 3rd one in that semi open world style.
Dreamcast RPGs and fighting games were the standouts besides sonic and crazy taxi.

Wrong. A game needs to be fun alone to be a good a game otherwise its badly designed one. If the AI isn't challenging in a sports game or super smash then its not a good game. All games have the option to be played solo but not all games can be played with others. To make a good game, you need to make sure its fun to be played alone, then you need to add features to it to make even more enjoyable with others. It doesn't work the other way around and thats why you see so many shitty multiplayer games out nowadays.

Kenshi is a mix of sims, dwarf fortress, oblivion, rts games and full enthusiasm.
I've ben playing non stop since 4 days since I got it.

I tend to choose the freedom seeker start.
I've had some success but keep either getting raided by slavers or killed by the tax authorities.

I kep trying to settle Okran's Gulf but I almost never survive the trip.
I usually go with 2 green landers, 2 scorch landers and 2 Sheks.
Any tips?

are you sure they didnt attack you because you were still wearing holy nation disguises?

ive had escaped slaves walk into mongrel no problem, not sure if theyre hostile to holy nation. it might also be because the game is janky as fuck at times

I took the disguises off beforehand and they still attacked. I googled around and I think it's cuz while you're an ex-slave you're still considered a Holy Nation citizen, who the Shinobi attack.

I subbed to Humble Bundle one month to get some decent games, then canceled at the end. I was using an online visa so they couldn't recharge it. But then I added another one to PayPal, and the motherfuckers charged that. So now I have some gay region-locked Assassin's Creed Origins which I will absolutely not be playing (anyone in Australia or Asia want AO?).

This has me a bit salty. So I'd like to offer up anything from their DRM-free trove for download, because fuck these cunts. I'll upload the first 2-3 of whatever you request.

I'll also look through old keys from Humble and give you guys whatever you want from there as long as I'm not using it

Is switch and wiiu emulation gonna force nintendo to port their games to pc? I mean, wiiu and switch games perform and look way better when emulated on pc than when played on nintendo consoles, so there's no reason to buy these games for the original platforms other than wanting to give nintendo money. And why would you want to give nintendo money when they want to scam consumers by making them have to buy a console in addition to the games they want to play when they could have a better experience on the pc they already have?

also, netflix exclusives and epic store exclusives and all of this shit. Why would you not pirate shit when these corporations want to scam us?

Idk if EA was as shitty back when DAnquisition came out. I had beat the game and let my friend borrow it. He had basically beaten the game, then the save corruption happened. He doesnt have a computer so there was no way to back up his saves. But he took it well. Just formatted the ps3 and traded it in for a ps4. This was back when the ps4 first came out.

To be fair you could be old enough to post on this site and have been about 13 when inquisition came out.

However for people who'd been buying games a little while it was undeniable by the time DA:2 came out. I can't speak for everyone else but the decline is never out the blue and having ignored the warnings with EA I know I've gotten better at knowing when to hop off the "buying without extreme skepticism" train.

Says a lot about the industry that my way of thinking is just pragmatism for anyone who's not a 3 games fifa, cod + 1 other usually a year customer.

I was like 20 when I bought it. I remember it won game of the year so I thought id at least try it. It was my first dragon age game, and I heard it was like a mix of kotor and baldurs gate. It was aight and I can see why people love it, but I found the story boring as fuck and I didnt really care for any of the characters. To me it was over rated.

Probably, it does have that.

Anyway, this shit is great apart from the downsides. They've frozen gold and xp earnings as well as buying new weapons which sucks. However the base classes have all the main shit you need to enjoy the game, and the gameplay is awesome. There have been some server issues apparently but I was just playing on a server with 48 people and it was smooth as hell. Obv try to reduce your ping but other than that it seems good to go.
