I haven't tried making one of these since the trouble with the last one, but we have a major happening coming up that kind of demands it, I think.

Tomorrow the GamerGate panel at the Society for Professional Journalists will be streaming the live debate on modern media ethics and the GG cause.

The Countdown:


Present will be Mark Ceb, a /v/ regular and oldschool #GG supporter, as well as Breitbart reporter Milo Yiannoupolis and Christina Hoff Sommers of the Factual Feminist channel. The event is styled as a presentation and debate of the journalism issues encompassed by the GamerGate scandal, and is to date, the first formal, professional hearing of our grievances to be had in the public square.

Updates and the livestream link will be made available via the SPJ's Airplay site at: http://spjairplay.com/guide/

As an aside, we got some good coverage by a neutral reporters from GamePolitics the other day, one Brad Glasgow, who did a series of interviews on our Reddit hub over the last month.

Story is a little off for million dollar extreme had no connection to the creating of said video.

That channel were the ones who made it happen and only name dropped million dollar extreme and Sam Harris

"This video is by: https://www.youtube.com/youhadtodoit

...hat tip to this channel and also to the hacker known as "Anonymous" for the name drop, thank you and cheers :)"

But yeah fuck the media these days if it doesnt work towards the companies bottom line they will not report on it.

  Satellite Reign has been released today (dev through Kickstarter, released through Humble Bundle & Steam).

The team worked on Syndicate & Syndicate Wars. It's supposed to be its spiritual successor.

Hope it'll be neat, but looks a lot less dark than the originals.

Just cleared the first district. Decent so far, not stellar.

So far, the game is somewhat repetitive. Missions often bring you back to something that you already did before.

Most annoying to me is how weak/inaccurate the standard gun is. I was expecting a more Syndicate War style FUCK EVERYTHING approach, minigun style. Even the standard Syndicate & Syndicate wars weapons were pretty effective when you have 4 guys with SMGs focus fire onto a single enemy. That's pretty much the end of the enemy right there & then. In Sat Reign, the enemies don't go down quite as fast, even when you focus fire.

That's probably because they aim to make the game more stealth oriented than what S/SW was. Which isn't bad, but somewhat awkward at first.

Once you get the miniguns and beam guns, shit does get easier to fuck around with when coupled with various abilities (like EMP etc).
What's somewhat weird is that the early grenades keep owning just as hard through the entire game.

Most annoying bugs so far:
- Civilians walking through check points using a wrong wandering path, causing guards to open fire & checkpoint doors to malfunction. 2 of my agents got caught in the crossfire and it all went to shit.
- After getting caught in an enemy grenade blast, my infiltrator somehow got stuck after being knocked back and briefly stunned. Could swap weapons but nothing else. I had to lure guards in with my other agents to kill my infiltrator to remove the effect. Bummer.
>> No. 56069 ID: 92bd8b
Finished. Ending was somewhat predictable. But OK game overall.

Vid: let's go oldskool:
>Every satellite in UTOPIA's network of geo-synchronous orbital platforms is equipped with a stockpile of tungsten-uranium alloy rods on a steerable mounting. When these rods are launched, the process of atmospheric re-entry heats them to the point at which they liquefy, producing a plasma rain with true battlefield potential. We can now successfully over-ride the system lockouts triggered by Harbinger. By transmitting re-initialisation protocols, the system can be placed at your agents' disposal. This can be done using a hand-held activator but caution should be exercised; the cost of firing this system is extremely high.

  Any of you niggas play this?

It's a mafia simulator directly inspired by ShackTactical's Dark Business mission.

You enroll in a corp, get missions to trade with other corps, exchange cash for sensitive data on a floppy... Or just give them an empty suitcase and hope they hesitate to check inside.

Or maybe you do give them the money, but you want it back, so you set up an ambush close to their base, kill them all and bring the money back.

It's still alpha but fucking amazing already. Video is old, guns seem a bit more lethal in the latest version.

I tried to figure out if development was actually active and it doesn't seem like it, but I like the idea.

I don't actually mind the blocky no texture graphics, but the reason for that kind of trade off should be a heavily populated world, and this seems fairly empty.

Would be nice to see what could be done with a copy of some portion of New York City with a population of NPCs on the order of 100,000.

Ah, the steam news is updated more regularly than their website and google+, makes sense, but a bit confusing, also I should have checked reddit of course.

I'll wait at least 6 months before I check this out.

I don't know if anyone else is looking forward to this, but it has me really excited.

Starting out, I suspect there won't be many games that can make great use of the immersive capabilities, but I bet we'll see some really great things in the near future.

So how about you? What are you most excited about? Or are you? Where do you think this will lead in terms of game play?

I'd much prefer Rise of Flight and IL-2 series, Ilya Muromets, etc. Racing games as another OPERATOR said would be awesome, like the Sim Bin Race games, and then the obvious stuff with basic head tracking integration already like Elite and Star Citizen.

There are a few first person shooters i'd love converted to IR compatibility, namely the Hitman series, Killing Floor, and Quake and Doom series.

Why power through it? It's not like SR:HK will run away on you? Enjoy the games at their own pace while it lasts, they're not exactly very long.

And done.

My playthrough took around 25 hours.
Overall a pretty decent game. As you get nearer to the end there are more and more bugs and sloppy design though. Too bad, but nothing really game breaking. I hope they'll patch it soon.

Certainly a $15 well spent on kickstarter. I'll play through it once more now and will probably come back to it later.

My first playthrough was with a decker, I think I'll go melee this time. I also suspect mage would be pretty good since there isn't an NPC mage with a storyline available afaik. Maybe I'll do a physical mage?
>> No. 55914 ID: f0bd12
25 hours, not bad, good to see it's a full campaign.
I guess holding off on playing this for a few weeks wouldn't be a bad idea, I can wait for the first few patches.

I was having trouble with a fight that's why I stopped playing, I didn't want to have to change the way I was playing, but I couldn't make it through the fight very well as it was, meh, I'll do it some time this week and it will be fine, not far to go from the end I think.

You can lower the difficulty "on the fly", if you want. It's in the options menu. Personally, I started playing SR:HK on Normal, but bumped it up along the way since I was barely taking damage. At the start, you feel kinda weak though, since your NPCs don't all contribute a whole lot in fights.

During the first section of SR:HK, there's a passage where I thought "well, that's going to suck if you use an adept or melee focused street samurai", but I just replayed that and it was pretty easy. The NPCs provided could pull it off without any help from you if you guide them right and use their skills correctly.

I also think near the end would suck without a good decker character, but I guess Is0b3l will do fine? We'll see, since in my current playthrough I'm going as adept instead of decker.

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 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.

Also affects roll I-frames, weapon degradation, parry frames, possibly poison's effect too.

Poison effect and Weapon degradation not.
At least i haven´t noticed any difference after locking the game on 30fps with NVidia Inspector.

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.

That was fixed in the last patch. Try an older build and see for yourself. Protip: attack dead bodies, they absolutely wreck your weapons.

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?

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.

>> 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.
