My steam is lucienmith, I play mostly shootem-killems and casual-ish games. Bought overwatch 2 days ago but haven't played a match yet. Already have like 60 hours in the 10/10 nu-doom though.

All i've been playing lately is Dragon Age: Inquisition. It's alright, it's occupied my interest longer than anything else i've played recently. I tried to get into Planescape: Torment, but the widescreen mod doesn't really work so I gave up on it, which I guess is sort of stupid.

Pillars of Eternity is really good, too.

I want nu-Doom but lack capable hardware.

I have Awful McBad on Steam, but that's it.

I've been considering re-downloading my Borderlands collection, but I don't know if my current laptop can handle it (was a gift from someone who knows dick about computers, should have seen it coming).  If I get them working though I'd be happy to steal everyone's kills and loot.

Idtech 6 is actually p much a miracle engine. What's your current hardware? I wouldn't be surprised if you could pull like 30fps at least at 720 and with some options turned down.

My problem with vidya on the PC is that I'm completely OCD about framerates. I was running a flawless 80+ in Doom on ultra-nightmare quality, then one poorly optimized view of a door that probably has some rendering cracks or something dropped me to 52 so I had to set a fps cap immediately. Looking back to when I assembled my computer, I was pretty naive, but I really expected to pull at least a flawless 60 at 1080p for literally any game I tried with a 4790k and GTX 980ti. I haven't been able to do that with a game by Ubisoft since Far Cry 4. Though 60 is the goal, or higher if my gpu can manage it, anything above 40 is p much playable. Though it varies from game engine to game engine.

Anyone else possibly considering thinking about diving in for a 1070 or 1080? I'm going to try to hold out for the 1080ti, assuming i can afford it. Should probably upgrade cpu as higher priority though.

Started in on SOMA ("survival" horror from the same studio who made Penumbra and Amnesia).

So far it's decent, really decent. There's a lot of interesting scenarios going on.

The premise is that you, the protagonist, have recently been in an automobile accident that has left you with a brain condition that, left untreated, could kill you in a matter of months. Luckily you've just scheduled an appointment with a graduate neurology student who might be on the brink of something big.

Upon arrival to the appointment, the man you meet sits you in a chair, loads a bunch of hardware onto your head, and fires up the brain scan. Suddenly, the power seizes up and keels over, leaving you in darkness. Once you wrench off the junk attached to your melon, you find yourself completely alone in a degraded albeit futuristic facility. Evidence in the first few rooms points to some sort of catastrophe, and the date on the memo is over 100 years in the future.

Such is the premise, and there's another strange incident that I just experienced that kind of left me shaken in terms of outcome. At a certain point of the game, in order to progress and achieve communication with a survivor of this "incident," you find yourself face-to-face with a robot that seems to think it's human. It identifies itself as "Carl Semken," begs for medical treatment due to it's injuries, and you can engage in extended conversation with the robot for a while. Despite trying to convince it of it's artificial condition, ultimately it's a fruitless endeavor. No matter what you say, the robot things you're loony tunes and that it's a human being in dire need of a medic.

It's at this point that you're faced with a non-decision. In order to redirect power to the appropriate door in order to continue, you can either A: reroute power through the hookups the robot is locked into, thus causing it agonizing pain and eventually leaving it in a catatonic state, or B: shutdown the area the robot is in, effectively putting it offline permanently and "killing" it.

Oh, and on the way to the door, you pass by a corpse that's been drilled through the brain-pan and has a staff ID on him. His name? Carl Semken.

Shit, that's heavy.  I saw the opening stages of that game in a let's play series, but decided I'd rather put it off until I could play it for myself.  Sounds like I made a good call.

In other news I found out a couple days ago that my fiance had been holding out on me and had gotten Portal 2 for practically nothing through a sale and coupon a month ago.  Just finished it tonight.  Clever little game.  J.K. Simmons was a nice touch.  I haven't played the first one, so I was probably missing a good bit of context, but I still had a good time.

civ5 is on sale on steam. i haven't played it since it came out, but i was considering laying down some greenbacks for it.

as for pre-ps2 games, a lot of emulators allow online play but you gotta get it all configged right. there's communities based around the idea, same goes for PC games from that period as well since services like gamespy are kaput.

lately i've been playing alien:isolation and revisiting hl2 in between.

also does anybody here play ES:O? it's on sale for $20 during the steam sale. i'm not big into mmo's at all (last thing i played was guild wars back in 2006), but i like the elder scrolls universe for the most part.

the first ME is like a hybrid of jade empire and KOTOR, which is to be exepcted because it's essentially the same era, maybe a little after. that being said, me2 was the best in the trilogy. me3 was too streamlined.

speaking of, i'd love to see another JE game. with a few more tweaks that could have been a GOAT game.

been stuck into CivV hardcore for the past two days. Spanked all the NPCs on chieftain, upped it to prince and having a little bit more of a challenge but the map that was generated threw me onto a peninsula rich with resources so i just locked it off asap and made good with two other other top nations.  actually the only luxury item i've got right now is wine, a fuckton of wine,  like a dozen tiles worth, and everybody wants it so i'm making a slaying.

Gag.  If you must stick it in a human at least go for Jack.

In all seriousness Shepard and Tali have the best chemistry by miles, but that half-assed photo in ME3 really killed the boner, or at least tried its best.  Like, it's your last game, you'll never be coming back to these characters, fucking let us see her in person without the fucking mask.  Fucking cunts should never have fucked with EA.  If their dialogue wasn't so genuine that shit would have been a serious deal breaker.

ME3 was like that all the time come to think of it.  Fantastic characters and development/dissatisfying unfinished story arcs.  Flawless gameplay/required online multiplayer.  Some moments make you think it's the best game ever, others make you want to die.


I second a Jade Empire reboot though.  That game was classic.  EA needs to fuck off first though.

rec one? I've never played one, dunno if 4X type games count. But I can't really get into 4X type games.

further elaborating on my thoughts regarding DOOM: I never played the original titles, because I was always more into RPGs and didn't start getting into FPS titles until the first CoD came out, and I haven't stuck with the FPS genre because of the huge amount of fat that's been stuck onto it and the hand holding that's become a staple lately. So when I play something that pretty much cuts out all the bullshit and strips it down to esentially bare bones, I'm a happy camper. And DOOM 2016 does that perfectly. No cheesy stealth missions, no quasi-RPG trappings, and a minimum of NPCs outside of the demons. And there are a lot of demons, which you spend a lot of time slaughtering mercilessly. Combat starts literally five seconds into the game, and there's a minimum of moments where you're stuck listening to exposition for a story that's barely there (although if you choose you CAN spend time fleshing it out by collecting and reading codex entries, but it's not essential. Much like all the other collectibles of the game). Maps are huge and somewhat non-linear in terms of how you choose to navigate them. It feels fresh and it feels fun, and it's also the first thing that's held my interest longer than thirty minutes since years and years (literally, I cannot think of another recent game that I've enjoyed as much as I have enjoyed DOOM). I don't often recommend AAA titles, but this one I do.

i'm really enjoying darkest dungeon but it feels more like a mobile game than one requiring a pc.

as far as grand strategy i have to rec paradox even though they are loser swede cucks. almost all of their games are at least pretty decent while EUIV is one of my favorite games. stellaris is sort of 4x and more roleplaying than strategy really but it's very comfy. ck2 is more similar to euiv but focuses on characters rather than nations. much roleplaying.
autists on /gsg/ will say that victoria 2 is the only good one though. it's supposedly the most complex but i haven't gotten around to trying it.

if you're looking for something more action oriented then total war's latest offering is supposed to be pretty good and warhammer is always cool. the older total war titles are worth looking back to as well. particularly if you want to fight me on shogun or rome 2.



oh and don't give paradox any money for dlc just download it all or ask me for links

Pirated EUIV and played the last two days. Pretty steep learning curve. I tried to win Irish independence first, Britain didn't have to fuck me up because Scotland did. Stabbed me right in the fucking back. I was close to a military alliance with them. Then I thought it would be cool to play as Teutonic Knights. I got cheeky, thought I was doing pretty well on troops, then fucking POLAND invaded with like 8 armys all over 40,000 men! I was only a few years into the game, my largest army was 7k lmao.I then tried Lithuania, mainly to crush the Ottomans. Tried to take a tiny province, and easily took it until their ally (whom I had not paid attention to really) took over half my country and left me broke. Thanks Golden Horde. Basically fuck this game I'll only play it for the lulz.

it's definitely hard to learn. it took me ages. try playing france, ottomans, castile or portugal to start out. it's really rewarding but will take a bit to get good at. if anybody buys it we can do multiplayer and i can learn you'll niggers some strats on discord.

Yeah, found that out the hard way last night. I hadn't been paying attention to the fact I had a royal marriage with the Muscovites and Poles. My leader died and an all-out war for the throne broke out between them. I dunno whether to start back at an earlier date or just be a Russian puppet. I might have stood a chance if they weren't allied to the Ottomans who also invaded when I tried to win independence. Maybe Prussia would help, they sent lots of money but wouldn't enter an alliance.

That's true.Even though the graphics look a little bit old I couldn't imagine anything else that would fit better.You may as well take a look at pirate bay and search for Arcanum GOG (good old games),where you can download an already patched version of the game

The Metro duology is/was on sale from Humble for $5 so I sprung on it. About fifteen minutes into the second one. So far so good, albeit pretty linear. Makes me wanna go reboot STALKER.

I love the s.ta.l.k.e.r games.   Bought shadow of chernobyle when the game was just released and I am still addicted to it until this day. This is also the biggest reason why I could never get into the metro games. I don't like linear games, stalker gives you freedom to roam around the zone and do whatever you want. The first stalker game is truly a masterpiece.

CoP is pretty decent as well, especially with mods.

And to be fair, despite being linear, 2033 almost captures the same atmosphere. once you separate the two series' it becomes easier to stomach.

currently playing through Clash At Demonhead on NES. It's weird enough to be good.

john, did you check out total war: warhammer yet? i managed to snag it for $12  a while ago but when i sat down to actually try it recently i was pleasantly surprised because of how bad their last game was.

i don't know anything about warhammer lore but this game is making me interested. the variety of characters, styles etc is very fascinating.

i've mostly gotten a kick out of my Chaos Warriors yelling out "blood for the blood god!" and "skulls for the skull throne"! every 25 seconds.
 i want to know more about this blood god and how i might serve him


also anyone that uses Steam shall add me at FloatingSteel. pic is a roman statue.
i've had some great all nighters playing total war with Bill in the past. everyone interested will join the ranks of the enlightened and develop an interest in medieval warfare

I really want to get into those games but I need a computer that knows how to compute first.

Whenever I have that kind of money saved up I always put it into instruments and shit.  And what I need to be doing is saving to move.

A computer's on the list too.  Maybe if Uncle Sam is generous with my returns I'll invest that in it.

I wish someone would design a little modem-like module that would connect 8/16/32 bit systems to a user base for online multiplayer.

outside of emulation, people probably feel it's a redundant endeavor, sadly.

kekking pretty hard over the ME:A fiasco. wish i had the same enthusiasm regarding vidya as i once did. everything seems pretty boring, i can't bring myself to play more than fifteen minutes at a time.

I've been playing The Witcher 3 recently and I really regret not getting into it sooner. It's the perfect combination of all the things done right in the previous two entries, plus some fantastic new design. I'm really stoked to see what Projekt Red is going to be doing in the future. They've got a new project coming out, Cyberpunk 88 or something like that, and some hackers are trying to blackmail them. To which the studio replied "fuck you"

Gotta admire that.

Anyone keeping up on e3?
