Soup. Are there any decent coop RPG's out lately? I want something I can play with mai waifu. MMO's are even fine though ideally I don't want to pay a monthly subscription. I'm fine with just some generic fantasy one.

Torchlight 2. Coop oriented, cheap, and very reminiscent of Diablo 2.

Diablo 3 is apparently pretty good now too, but I haven't picked it up myself.

Grim Dawn also just left early access and is basically Titan Quest 2: Grimdark Boogaloo.

Fallout 4 publisher Bethesda Softworks announced the first details of its downloadable content schedule for the game today, saying that it has plans for "more than $60 worth" of add-ons coming in 2016 — and therefore, an increase in the price of the DLC season pass.

Bethesda originally announced the Fallout 4 season pass in September at $29.99. At the time, the company said that the season pass "get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30," and added, "We know that [the DLC] will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass."

Fallout 4 - Automatron DLC art 1000

That will no longer be the case as of March 1, when, "given the expanded DLC plan," Bethesda will raise the price of the Fallout 4 season pass from $29.99 to $49.99 in North America (and from £24.99 to £39.99 in the U.K.). Bethesda noted that anyone who already purchased the season pass, or who buys it before March 1, will get all of Fallout 4's paid add-ons for the original $29.99 price.

Of course, Fallout 4 players will be able to purchase add-ons individually if they don't want to commit to the season pass. The game's first piece of paid DLC is Automatron, which is set for release in March for $9.99 in North America and £7.99 in the U.K. Automatron is a mod-focused expansion that will let you harvest parts from evil robots, including the Robobrain, to build custom robot companions.

Next up is "Wasteland Workshop," which introduces the ability to design cages for capturing enemies "from raiders to Deathclaws." You'll be able to "tame them or have them face off in battle, even against your fellow settlers." The add-on will also offer new design options for settlements. "Wasteland Workshop" is coming in April for $4.99 in North America and £3.99 in the U.K.

The third Fallout 4 add-on Bethesda announced today is Far Harbor (screenshot above), which is a full story expansion and is priced to match at $24.99 in North America and £19.99 in the U.K. Here's the full description from Bethesda:

A new case from Valentine's Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing conflict between the synths, the Children of Atom, and the local townspeople. Will you work towards bringing peace to Far Harbor, and at what cost? Far Harbor features the largest landmass for an add-on that we've ever created, filled with new faction quests, settlements, lethal creatures and dungeons. Become more powerful with new, higher-level armor and weapons. The choices are all yours.

I liked Cricket until I read....spoiler alert....that she was an Institute spy. Pretty much all the Caravan people are. And snitches get stitches.

I may not like the Railroad, that Watts woman from Fallout 3 being a cunt kinda soured that relationship for me and the F4 RR with their "help synths, fuck humans" attitude doesn't do them any favors, but I like the Institute even less.

At their very core they are kidnappers. The game starts with them kidnapping your kid. Throughout the game you hear about dozens of people who have been replaced. You run into a person being replaced. Thats fucked up. They are killing people and replacing them with slave copies that they don't even have the decency to care about.

And thats not all. That doesn't even get into the probably hundreds of people they kidnapped and experimented on with FEV. People that once infected they just tossed out into the Commonwealth creating the current super mutant menace there.

Then there is the whole towns they wiped out with their earlier robit synths. Places like University Point and various settlements they launch raids on. People in those settlements they replace.

So anyone who works with the Institute willingly is the enemy.

Really can't recommend this enough.
Bought it on steam after seeing a short gameplay video of day 1 of the game.

Really good if you're into single player story games.

Actually I just came back from Deadpool with some friends. €14 for a ticket, large popcorn and coke. So I'll buy Firewatch when it's (20-14) €6 on sale haha

Great film by the way.

More seriously though, I don't mind games that are on the line of possibly being in the wrong medium. Just as long as it is very clear what kind of game it will be so the consumer can make a good decision with their vidja bux.

Cinematic is a very annoying term though, usually just means "are game's a bit shit and wont have good frame rates".
>> No. 57454 ID: f2a66a
>I can go to a matinee showing of Deadpool with a burger lunch and a beer delivered to my seat and pay the same, if not a dollar more than Firewatch at MSRP.

Yes, that's what I was getting at. You can go see a 2hr movie in theaters, or play a game like Firewatch, which is essentially an interactive movie, for 4-6.

>Firewatch is a game with all the right elements poorly executed

Nothing is really poorly executed about it other than the fact that it isn't long enough to really be good value compared to other videogames.
>> No. 57455 ID: 53e7c0
>nothing poor about it
well that's your subjective view, but then you go on and admit that...

>isn't...good value compared to other videogames.

Exactly his point. It's failed at it's medium; and intended audience. This is the same reason 10 or 15 minute cartoons at movie theaters, and you don't have a waiter at McDonald's.
>> No. 57458 ID: f2a66a

>It's failed at it's medium

There isn't a correct way to use a creative medium. That's a non-sequitur. Barnett Newman and Van Gogh are both equally successful and critically acclaimed painters and to rail against that is just to be bitter that history got written without your input.

Firewatch has recieved glowing reviews from both critical reviewers and players, and no doubt been commercially successful, so really it's egotistical to say that it's failed anyone other than the handful of people that wanted a more traditional videogame experience.

But like >>57424 said, adventure games tend to use puzzles just to pad out game length (and pre-GameFAQs, make more money off of players), take for example, the maple syrup cat hair mustache in Gabriel Knight 3, or (IIRC) the hidden fusion reactor you need to solve a puzzle in a Space Quest game that is never once mentioned beforehand.

So how excited is OpChan for the upcoming Xcom2 release? Was the first remake OPERATOR enough for you guys, or is the original X-Com: Enemy Unknown (or the more loyal Xenonauts remake) the only good version in your mind? How about Terror From the Deep and Apocalypse?

Personally, I liked the original, didn't like Terror From The Deep, hated Apocalypse, never played Xenonauts, loved the remake more than I did the original (heresy, I know), and love everything I hear about Xcom2 except the revealed storyline that Xcom losing in the first game is the canon they are going with. Call my weird but I would've preferred a "You won but things went to shit anyway" scenario.

Game AI have an OODA loop it's just really fast, that's why speedrunning games works. It's worse on modern games for some reason.

I think you just about got inside the AI OODA loop.
>> No. 57415 ID: 3d25a3
I actually had similar results on that one. More wounded due to grenade hits, but most of my "reinforcements" never even got to engage, despite my original six being so badly outnumbered.

I honestly think the AI just isn't very good at dealing with a relatively large head to head engagement where both parties know what they're running into.

Finished the game on commander. Had to retry the last mission several times to get shit done.

While some people seem to love hacking oriented specialists, I've had horrendous fucking luck with them (even when using the skulljack to boost hacking stats). In the end game, I'd probably just take an extra magi instead.
Maybe it's just my horrendous luck with the RNG, but even with double hacking stat to the hacking difficulty, I still got owned constantly when hacking.

I doubt I'll continue playing XCOM2 (though I will no doubt play the expansion when it's out). I played XCOM:EU/EW many times through, but I won't with XCOM2.
>> No. 57444 ID: c48f78
Mages and tech-priests are the two best units in the game. Mages can double your team. The other powers like null lance and soul fire, combat protocol, capacitor discharge all ignore armor.

I breezed through the last mission without any of my team even being hit. When you have a gatekeeper, three archons, and a sectopod you don't really have to worry that much about anything.
>> No. 57456 ID: bbadd8

My little tech priest had 160 or 165 hacking skill and he did not do any successful hack throughout the entire fucking mission.
Must be just my luck.
My magi on the other hand kick serious ass.

Also, your Sectopod would leave your control in a few rounds... Mind controlled enemies don't. (though you can get many hacks for only one mind control)

Welp, pre-purchased Dark Souls 3 deluxe edition. Just hope that certain terrible aspects of Dark Souls 2 don't carry over too much. I'm already worried how much the host will be coddled if the network stress test multiplayer mechanic is here to stay.

Pretty much spot on. So far, it looks like Dark Souls 3 will take significantly after Bloodborne but with Dark Souls 1's art direction. Granted, everything seems way too fast, IE a Wandering Knight with the Greatsword in the stress-test has no problem fast-rolling. It's probably going to change in the actual game, but I fear the first few months will be as bad as Dark Souls 1 when the Darkwood Grain Ring allowed everyone to flip.

After beating Fallout 4 again I'm at a loss on what to play to fill the time between sleeping and work. Now I could go out and have a social life or play some of the game in my Steam backlog like the Arkham games but fuck all that, gonna play me some more STALKER.

But probably I don't want the mainly vanilla STALKER I've played so far.

I'm looking for some mod recommendations, both for an improved vanilla-ish play through and some full conversions.

I'd like some weapon mods, preferably compatible with Stalker Complete. Also I'd like some character mods. Some shit that does to the rather crappy character models as Complete does to the environment textures. The character models are pretty bad, like I've noticed while playing through Postal 2 recently the character models of the soldiers wouldn't look out of place in STALKER.

I'm also looking for some full conversions. Stuff that might make the Zone fell a bit more fresh. I'd like to try some but still have Complete, hopefully with some improvements, to fall back in if I don't like them like I did Misery.

Of course any of the mods being relatively stable is a must.

Hardcore mode alone was fucking OP in New vegas.

While I do feel like it wouldn't be as necessary in Boston, because boston is more built up, it was still an excellent game mechanic that made you feel alot less like a badass and alot more like a vulnerable meatbag who could quite easily get fucked up - while not making enemies bullet sponges.
In contrast I hate fallout 4's higher difficulties - Bullet sponge enemy garbage

Except for the part where a bunch of them have issues running on newer operating systems and the fact that running a game at low res 4:3 on high resolution widescreen monitors (see: anything made in the last decade) is a fucking massive eyesore.

But you can be a contrarian if you want to, that's fine too.

You're wrong, even a cursory Google search would show you that. Speaking personally, Tiberian Sun doesn't render any menus, which is a known issue for a lot of people, caused by some shit Nvidia driver released in the last 8 months. I have seen no shortage of other issues as well, and Tiberian Sun + W10 has so many issues it isn't even funny. Also, just because they can be forced to run 16:9 high resolutions doesn't mean it comes without bugs like shit being cropped out of the screen because of it.

And you still haven't explained what exactly is wrong with OpenRA, which makes me think you're just being contrarian instead of offering any actually valid justification for that opinion.

  This is pretty sick. I've been looking for a working torrent for the C&C for awhile but to no avail. Been wanting to LAN them with buddies. I don't have the CD's anymore and last thing I'm going to do is download EA's piece of shit software and pay them to get it. The fact it comes with Dune too is just icing on the cake.

  Okay, I'm actually starting to get excited for the potential of this game.

Cool shit seen in the video:

Animations for firing gun without magazine (with and without a round in the chamber), persistence of ammo in magazines and chamber, weapons malfunctions (stovepipes, misfires) and clearing the weapon, various reloads (drop, with retention, etc.), animated weapon internals, incremental stance height, STALKER-like inventory management, procedural animations based on weapon length for maneuvering along walls/in cramped quarters, procedural animations for looting, including opening every fucking orifice of a car, including doors, hood, trunk, and possibly glovebox.

TBH I have high hopes for this thing.

The thing I really hate about GTA V that is relevant here is that basically any damage to a pedestrian kills them. Even the taser is lethal, ridiculously enough.

Meanwhile, in GTA IV, you could shoot a cop until he fell and writhed in agony on the ground and sometimes they would actually get back up. I wish more games would have dynamic health of NPCs. Perhaps leave it so that a proper headshot is instant and guaranteed death, but let the NPCs absorb hits sometimes and struggle and adapt. Instead of a rifle bullet to the leg killing a guy, have him crawl and roll around while still being a threat.
>> No. 57328 ID: 095a2b
So true, GTA 4 was great for that. People would often 'wake up' after being knocked out if it wasn't from gunfire or an explosion, meanwhile in 5 you hit some one once and they basically die. I think the physics engine had alot to do with it too.

I hope R* sees this video and literally takes notes.
>> No. 57351 ID: 9eff3a
I remember when it was only on PS3/360, that the police would actually take quite a few shots to go down, and most of the time, would sit up and keep shooting, and another one, would come form behind a car/cover, and try to drag the injured one back...what ever happened to that after the next-gen/PC release? I never saw them do it after that.
