The Tyranny RPG game releases in a few hours.

You get to play a judge/jury/executioner "Fatebinder" working for a brutal warlord. You can be horrendously evil, or try to minimize damage as a goody two shoes.

Seems interesting.

I find it weird that a game that's marketed as being "mature" and "dealing with mature content" talks about rape a lot, but never allows the player character to partake in it?

A lot of people are also bothered by how many women warriors & leaders there are and are blaming SJW. :)

Finished my first playthrough in 27 hours. Following the Disfavored questline because at first glance it was the most "orderly" thing to do.
I never got to visit the burning library (I did set it ablaze during conquest, but I had hoped to visit it later). Maybe I missed something like having to fire off a counter Edict to be able to visit the place? Or maybe it's just due to my Conquest choices.

I got Tunon and Ashe to bend the knee to me. Had to kill the Archon of Shadows sadly...
Killed Nerrat (or well, is he really dead?).
Was disappointed that I had to level an Edict against Kyros' capital. I kinda figured I'd just put an Edict on the borderlands to keep Kyros' troops at bay?

I wonder, if you go for the independent path, are you spared from having to pick a side initially (for taking the first Spire under Kyros' Edict of mutually assured destruction)? Or can you only go independent afterwards?

IIRC in this game world women are the ones who can own land, and men are the ones who can own ships/the sea.

As such owning land will lead to having power. Having power means being in positions of power. Hence, tons of women in power in the game.

As for the rest, im not too far into it. I barely have the will to play it after I get done spending 10 hours dealing with complete retards at work. Also old people.

In the north, ruled by Kyros the Overlord, everyone is equal (except the Archons, which are more equal than others ;)). In the "barbaric south" (a tiny outcrop of land compared to Kyros' lands), women enherit the land ownership while men enherit the sea related property. This doesn't mean men can't be kings (here "Regent") or that women can't captain a ship.
It's a kinda matriarchal society mostly, but this is not true in all southern countries. Stalwart has male Regents who govern the land.

>Hence, tons of women in power in the game.

The main objection I hear is that women here are not exceptions in heavy combat roles. You'd expect women in magical, support, ranged (javelin & bow) or lance related roles mostly. Not shock troops in heavy armor. Nor would you expect a woman as the second in command for Graven Ashe.
The scarlet furies make sense, since they gracefully slaughter with dexterity, not necessarily brute force.

Much can be explained away, but there seems to be a disproportionate number of lesbians in the south and they do rub your nose in it sometimes. You get the feeling they genderswapped people at the end of development. There's even people who refer to themselves as male in conversation, but have female character models... Sloppy.

They also try to explain that female soldiers are "welcome" to get pregnant. Yeah... Being out of the fight for 6 months to a few years. I guess that's a great strategy to lose wars.

So...I've never been a big audiophile and I'm behind the times when it comes to gaming audio technology. My PC specs aren't top of the line, but they're not bad, but what is bad is the Cyber Accoustics 2.1 system I have and the Dyne keyboard I picked up as an emergency replacement that I never bothered to replace.

So, I'm shopping for both replacement speakers and a new keyboard. Not looking to spend a ton but I'm willing to invest a bit for quality gear. The main thing I'm looking at is audio pass-throughs for my headset. I'm still running 3.5mm jacks on my headset, mostly because my Gamescom is still fucking awesome and I have a spare already and am not really looking to switch to USB just yet with a few years of headsets already in my possession. Problem with my current setup is I'm using a headphones splitter in kinda a backwards setup, so the audio output is being split to both my speakers and headset. Doesn't do much for my sound quality or volume levels. But the convenience of being able to just put my headset on when I start gaming and just turn my speakers off is amazing, and something I'd like to preserve if I can.

So, I guess I'm left with a few options. Switch to a USB sound system for my speakers and keep the 3.5 jacks, or a speaker system with both mic and headphone jacks on the sub or one of the speakers. The keyboards with the headset jacks intrigue me but they all are just basically extensions that plug into the 3.5 jacks on my PC, which means they don't do anything to solve the issues with splitting my audio output.

So, just looking for some ideas without having to switch to a USB headset. Whatchya got? Any specific suggestions?

First, http://www.operatorchan.org/arch/res/5635.html#i5635

I leave the audio discussion to people who care more about it than I do. For a headphones I've got a set of AudioTechnica M50, and they're awesome. For a microphone I've got some $2 boom mic that I just put the head band around the back of my neck.

For the house I've got a Yamaha RX-V379 receiver and, I forget the brand of speakers now, but they're fucking nice. Home theater speakers that my buddy hooked me up with.

For keyboards, find a store, go there, type on some of the keyboards they have. I'm currently using this Best Buy house brand keyboard, and it works great for me.

"Mechanical" keyboards are bullshit. They're noisy as fuck, expensive, and offer no benefit. I've tried my buddys' Razor and Logitech keyboards and they are a complete waste of money.

There's a distinct difference between the tactile feedback from a mechanical/bucking spring keyboard, and the cheaper rubber dome or scissor-switch ones.

I've never seen the benefit. I type around 65 WPM and play plenty of online FPSes and the occasional MMO. Now, when we made the switch from PS2/AT keyboards to USB, and you could press more than 3 buttons at time, that was good shit.

Mice, on the other hand, I have no problem spending money on.

As I said, not really looking to replace my headset. And if I did I'd probably just get a USB version of the same one I have.

As for mechanical keyboards, its a pretty broad category and there are a lot of switches to choose from with different resistances, sound levels, and tactile feedback levels. And its all highly subjective.

I'm mainly trying to figure out a good way to have both speakers and headset be useful at the same time with minimal to no fuss switching between them.

  This came out a couple days ago. It's so damn good. Basically everything from the last game taken to the next level, and the guns aren't crap now. Haven't tried out multiplayer yet though.

Also a tip: Be sure to search around each side mission before finishing it, there's likely a miniboss somewhere who will drop a unique weapon or skill. Typically after a locked gate but in the opposite direction of the objective.

I'm think about running an online campaign of Mechnoir based on the rules of Technoir - anybody have experience with that system? The mechanics of adjective assignment sounds very interesting.

Played Technoir once or twice, but we never really got far into it. Not that there was anything bad with it, but we went back to Shadowrun as usual.

I do remember Technoir being an interesting system. Shame we never went further with it.

If you want a diceroller for IRC, then consider Servator bot. Mostly made for Derp Heresy, but it has other useful functions.

I put a lot of hours into RSR back in the day. I didn't really know what I was doing in the campaign mode, but I sure loved the single missions.

Will def keep an eye on this.

Wasteland 3 is kicking off, and will be set in frozen Colorado.
Aside from all the stuff in WL2, it will be more involved in base upkeep and you will have limited multiplayer (2 players with each their range squad, synchronous or asynchronous multiplayer). On the tactical side, you'll be more able to exploit heights to lay waste to enemies. Vehicles will now also be included (unarmed & armed).
The guys from STATIS jumped in and will be spicing up the graphics.

Less than two days in:
$2,182,861 OF $2,750,000 GOAL

Bonus:
>FIRST 48 HOURS ONLY: All backers of Wasteland 3 ($20 or more) will receive a FREE copy of either the old-school turn-based post-apocalyptic cRPG UnderRail or the point-and-click horror adventure game STASIS.

I don't know how many people know of this games existence but its essentially a large BF2 mod that implements some ultra-realistic components into a massive (2-5km) maps that allows for some large scale warfare. The community is very much still alive usually with a full server in either PvP or Cooperative. Loads of fun, and nobody can appreciate it as much as OPERATORs.

The mod itself is free and is about 6GB.

>Insurgency made harder for Blueforce for (I think) the 5th content patch in a row despite a "majority" of Blue losses according to one of the devs a few weeks ago.

Good to know game balance continues to be a low priority. Why can't they drag this shit out behind the woodshed and shoot it. There's an open grave next to Extraction.

Of course, why would they care? People only play Muttrah or that Kashan replacement anymore.
>> No. 54788 ID: ca37e4
>>54785

To be fair, Insurgency has always been a shit game mode that is impossible to balance.

The problem is that, primarily because of the spawn mechanics, squad coordination isn't a high priority. Spawn on a cache, camp a window and mow down some imperialists, and as long as the blufor team isn't working like a well-oiled machine then you're probably set.

A better insurgency mode would just be regular AAS with weapon cache side objectives to drain tickets faster, but not required. But having weapon caches as the primary objective is just fucking dumb, you'd never throw away hundreds of lives just to brute force your way inside some house to knock out a fucking RPG crate. It allows the Ins team to play completely defensively, so it's like playing Counter-Strike or some BS, with an arbitrary objective and a boring offense/defense team setup.

Which is why I'm scared for Squad or whatever that successor game is, because it looks like they're just going full-steam-ahead in the Ins department which has always been PRs weakest offering by a long shot.

Right. What this team fails to grasp time and again is to be a "game", any sort of game, be it a sport, boardgame, pnp, etc. there has to be a rule set that makes sense and you have to streamline realism and challenge with gameplay.

When you ramp up the complexity, you also ramp up the tediousness of gameplay and the learning curve. Essentially these guys have worked themselves into a corner, and are trying to sell Axis and Allies to RISK players, or Settlers of Catan is to Monopoly players(ie the CoD and Battlefield crowd).

Add in their limited abilities of the team and their refusal to address core brainstorming problems with the game and rules, like Insurgency mode, the game gets in the way of the game itself.

It's like when I would try and play Axis and Allies with my old group of friends and stuff; everyone would be on their cellphone and not paying attention, some guys would take forever and so on, insist they knew the rules then tried to do things that were against the rules, and after 3 hours we'd made one complete round of turns.
