Dont over extend your military, dont over build your military to where your taxes cant afford it. Dont capture a shit ton of areas if you cant hold them and pay for the force holding them.

Conversely: Cheat to get all the moneys.

Slow down your expansion, become worth as much as possible in trade, and pigpile.

If somebody is at war with two or three factions, attack them. Even if you just declare war and never actually move towards them. Easy relations boosts and occasionally easy land.

What's OpChan's general take on realistic shooter VS unrealistic shooters?

I know we all regularly sperg out over games that try to simulate real life firefights as closely as possible, but do we like games that intentionally present an unrealistic, stylized, even comical game mechanics attached to shooters? Games like Team Fortress 2, for instance.

The biggest problem I have with simulation oriented games is the interface is usually too unwieldy. When literally every key is a different ability and there are god knows how many combinations of Ctrl+ I get irritated. Especially when there's multiple control settings in game like for tanks and helicopters and aircraft and shit.

This part has to be my favorite from the first game.

I ended up picking the harrier route because it was quicker, though.

This unrealistic shooter is the only one I ever really cared for. I played the shit out of BZflag from 2002-2010, at which point I basically stopped playing games for the most part.

>-60fps issue (breaking hitboxes and enemys attack rate)
Also affects roll I-frames, weapon degradation, parry frames, possibly poison's effect too.
>> No. 55798 ID: 87a83f
Poison effect and Weapon degradation not.
At least i haven´t noticed any difference after locking the game on 30fps with NVidia Inspector.
I was surprised how easily i could dodgeroll and parry the attacks then.
>> No. 55804 ID: 8ae717
It's pretty unfortunate too since the level design and universe of the souls games is interesting and something I'd like to explore but aspects of the combat are objectively bad. It'd be pretty cool if it was a proper rpg too where being a dedicated spellcaster was a viable option as opposed to being a ner fed melee haracter with some spellcaster g ability.
>> No. 55811 ID: 5effdd
>Weapon degradation not.
That was fixed in the last patch. Try an older build and see for yourself. Protip: attack dead bodies, they absolutely wreck your weapons.
>> No. 55887 ID: 10838f
I havn´t played with the latest patch yet, but thanks for letting me know. But i assume, the i-frames bug on 60fps hasn´t been fixed?
Btw, is this bug fixed in Scholar of the first Sin? Or do i have to lock it on 30fps to not to get async attack animations?

  Anybody planning on picking up the new Act of War game? I ended up getting really burnt out on Wargame, so I'm hoping it'll be more fun.

I'm really looking forward to it. The problem with most RTSes I've disliked is how dry they are. They just have no character. I feel lackluster sound design is often at fault. And that's when they aren't a pile of ass to control (I'm looking at you Men of War). I found Wargame to be incredibly dry and boring, but they've billed this game as more CnC-esque, so color me interested.

I've been doing nothing but play CnC Generals Zero Hour (the one game I've never stopped playing), Planetary Annihilation and Company of Heroes 2 lately. I'll be curious if Act of War is up to snuff.

Same. I really enjoyed Warband but I think I'll wait on Bannerlord for a few patches and then see how it's doing.
>> No. 55812 ID: 185883
Honestly only 3 things (aside from the graphics) I think they need to change/upgrade from Warband:

1) Battle AI. Fighting 5 enemies by yourself? Be prepared for all 5 of them to clump into a 3-square foot area and walk straight towards you, with no attempt to flank you or even to maneuver at all.

2) More/better sound effects. Specifically sound effect variety.

3) Make the "custom battle" mode not such shit. Same 3 or 4 maps, no ability to customize the battles at all, besides picking from one of like 8 pre-made characters and then the number/ratio of forces. Sometimes you just want a cheap, quick fight, without all the campaign complexity or multiplayer difficulty.

OK so after years of memes, peer pressure on /k/ and operatorchan, I decided to try Fallout just to see what all the rage is about.

Purchased Fallout 3, played for six hours... aaaaaaaaaand it's fucking boring, story is boilerplate, characters are uninteresting, no meaningful consequences for actions, quests and gameplay is pants on head retarded, and worst of all the game is utterly unrealistic with regards to guns! Half a dozen headshots to drop a human? Fuck you for wasting my money with shit suggestions and getting me to buy a less interesting Mass Effect clone!

Fallout can go in the trash where it deserves to be, stop mentioning and glorifying this piece of shit >:(

Dude, look at how overhyped they already are, the game isn´t out, Bethesda hasn´t shown/told us anything NEW! And there wont be any significant changes (except a new world of course).

It was back when BF4 has been announced and everyone went batshit crazy, they all screamed "it will be so much better than BF3". Yeah, i already knew it will just be an overpriced mappack, and a few friends of mine who played it confirmed that.

Its not overhyped. People are just hyped. People are excited to have another Fallout game after many a long years since the last one and a numbered Fallout game rather then a sidegame.

Of course people are going to be hyped. Its an extremely popular game series and from what Beth has show us most people think its looks like fun to play.

And of course their won't be any significant changes. People (most people atleast) want another 1st/3rd person romp in some post-apocalyptic wasteland where you can freeze time by looking at your oversized watch.

We are getting that. Mission accomplished.

And there are new features like the base building, armor building, power armor that feels like power armor, more weapon mods then you can shake a stick at, probably weapon mods for a stick, improved pip-boy, and new dialogue system.

Games in a series don't have to be some massive improvement over the last if people enjoyed the features over the last.

For all the flack Carl on Duty gets for not innovating, its clearly because the people buying it in droves don't want some super duper newper game with whiz bang new features. They want a game they enjoy.

I ain't even making it up.


>It's worth pausing to note that Galvez, who put together the Topsy chart showing that these are not a few isolated tweets but rather part of a larger and organic response, is no stranger to sexist hate campaigns himself. When he criticized the sexism of the "GamerGate" movement, which opposes gender equality in technology, members of that movement harassed him extensively, including calling in a fake police report that got a SWAT team sent to his home.

>GamerGate and Donald Trump might not seem obviously connected, but they are: both are expressions of a disturbingly prevalent belief in the United States that not only is it right and good to hate women, but that hating women is so right and good that anyone who tells you not to hate women is a threat to core American values. Some believe it is such a threat that it is appropriate to punish them by, say, blanketing them in online harassment or calling in a SWAT team to their house.
Trump, in response to the controversy over his comments, a backlash that has included condemnations from many in the GOP establishment, has not backed down one iota. Rather, he has encouraged the wave of online sexist hatred against Kelly, for example by retweeting this seemingly random twitter user who calls Kelly a "bimbo".

Man when I got into this shit I never expected to become the bogeyman of the entire leftist world. This is like the 1990s gun rights battle all over again.

Missiles crashed into the ocean only 500 meter short.

Once fixed missiles ended up raping everything on their own it was glorious. Missile defense systems just get too overwhelmed.

  So brand new XCOM game just got announced. Post Enemy Within, where apparently the aliens took off the gloves and curb stomped humanity. XCOM is now the under-dog aggressor, fighting against the controlling aliens/human government.

>full steam workshop integration. highly modable
>procedurally generated maps. new mission types to fit with the offensive theme
>more customization/gear/abilities/weapons
>stealth/surprise mechanics
>new alien/enemy types
>more soldier classes
>silent storm style casualty evacuation

Consider me thoroughly optimistic about this.

Too obvious. Also, TFTD was palette-shifted. That's before filters were a thing.

I thought I had some screenshots from TFTD, but those are on my other computer.

I stopped playing after I got blaster-bombed multiple times.

Tried my hand at the copy they have on their page, once.

It stopped rendering blocks when I tried to run the demo, and attempting to go it on my own resulted in it eventually crashing.(pic related.)

I know the page says "Update your intel drivers", but Intel says my drivers are up to date.

Still, it's a nice idea.

FYI this is actually a free game, purchasing on steam just means when things get charges bumped up further on down the road as it gets from alpha to beta to proper release...

Maybe it's a potato, but GLaDOS ran on one, and it's the only potato I have right now. Then again, it runs some modded Minecraft fine, so I suspect there's some cheese and sour cream in this potato, even if it isn't bacon-worthy.
