#GG's Manhattan Project has finally dropped the mother of all bombs. After 9 months of digging by all of us and 3 months of hard, secretive work by Bonegolem and allies, plus diggers and archivers from /v/, we have finally launched Operation Deep Freeze as of 10:31am CST today.

And lookie now, they pulled their trump card to cockblock Deepfreeze. Drybones has gone turncoat and killed our data hubs at gamergate.me and GitGud.

Nobody totally saw that coming. :3

We'll have em both back up in a week. We were ready and waiting. The fags are getting predictable!

No, which was the point.

Drybones fell in with the Ayyfaggots and the Twitter circlejerk. Considering what he owns, we started quietly preserving everything on his sites almost 2 months ago.

It was neither a shock nor a surprise when he pulled the plug, but this time it won't be more than a mild inconvenience.

When I moved from my dad's place, I found out half of my game boxes in storage were molded. Lost some classics there. :(

Luckily stuff like HL, Unreal & Fallout 1 etc were intact, but Diablo, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, Tornado, Duke Nukem 1, Warcraft 1, Fighting Falcon, Stunts, etc = RIP. :(

I finally got around to beating WL2. Quick question, was anyone able to find Angela Deth (or her corpse) in LA? I found no trace of her in my playthrough, and the ending slide just said that she was never found, but given a funeral anyways. Did I just miss her?
>> No. 54657 ID: 4e70cc

She's not meant to be found. Her death is meant to go on unconfirmed and is really just there to get you more emotionally involved. It's not impossible that she might show up in an expansion or sequel.

Morning, all.

I've recently started training with Escrima along with my other Martial Arts training, and thought it would be fun to see if there's any games (old or new) that featured Escrima as a part of the gameplay. I don't know of any, so hence the question.

Thoughts appreciated.

The newest Tekken game has some Flip fighter in it who uses eskrima as well as some elements of kickboxing, I think.

SC: Blacklist is also heavily influenced by eskrima and is one of the few games to feature a usable karambit.

It's not vidya, but "The Hunted" with Benecio del Toro is basically a love letter to eskrima. Not to mention being a pretty badass film it its own right.

Tonfas are basically kali/rattan sticks with a handle, but I'm now sure if her fighting style actually qualifies as eskrima(-esque). Been some time since I've played Soul Calibur games.

I mean, basically anyone can pick up a pair of rattan sticks and start swinging them. I don't think swinging them without knowing what you're doing is going to count as eskrima, however.

From my very limited understanding of eskrima, the way you're taught to use eskrima sticks is to utilize strikes and movements that could also be preformed with or without the stick. The stick is just a tool to enhance your already impressive unarmed assbeating capabilities (if you're trained, that is).

...And this is why you should never start shit in the Philippines unless you're sure you can finish it.

Some of what you said is correct. They use sticks because they're universal-flip martial arts are weapon based. you learn weapons first, primarily the stick, because you can always find a bludgeon, along with the knife, because who doesn't wear or carry a knife? Unarmed comes in last.
>> No. 54579 ID: 885afe
That movie is so damn good.

>From my very limited understanding of eskrima,
You are pretty much right.

Supposedly there is sort of a back alley escrima dojo/whatever here in corpus that I have been tempted to go check out. All the martial arts in corpus are TKD/Karate. There is absolutely no useful martial arts schools here. :(
>> No. 54581 ID: e06ef9

I'm no expert, but I've been taking classes and training in Kenpo for about 3 years. My kids go too. They offered an intro escrima class several weeks ago and I took it along with my daughter, and I've decided that they would be an excellent weapon to learn with. Not only is it fairly easy to find something in almost any situation that you could use escrima skills with (even a rolled up magazine would work in a pinch), the skills learned with escrima would translate easily over into almost any other weapons training we decided to do eventually.

Never saw "Hunted" so I guess I need to now. Clip related.

Thanks for the tip on Arkham. I bought it at a Steam sale and haven't played it much.
>> No. 54601 ID: df12a0

Any sticks will do, actually.

>I'm not sure if her fighting style actually qualifies

...except, you know, Project Soul and Namco made her fighting style escrima.

Oh, I already played a lot of BC2 and 1 on lolconsoles, I was asking that mostly because I don't like the idea of buying a dead MP game. And usually the lower the price is the more populated a game is, at least for a week or two, so.

There are still a fair number of populated servers. Right now BFBC Stats says there are close to 1500 playing on PC.

  Konami just went full retard. They canceled Silent Hills and they delisted from the New York Stock Exchange. Word on the street is that Konami wants to get into the moble game market and stop making video games entirely. That's why they fired Kojima and killed the Silent Hills project.

I hope Konami burns to the fucking ground after MGSV releases.

There is no metal gear without Kojima. Apparently he's wanted to branch out to other things for some time. Konami will, i'm sure, continue the series and fuck it up completely, but MGSV will hopefully pull through and be a solid finale to the true series.

I'm not gonna lie it would be rather amusing to see MGS somehow turned into a shitty Farmville clone or something.

in after you never palyed Postal 1. Postal 1 WAS simply an isometric murderous homicide spree game. EXACTLY like Hatred.
>> No. 54525 ID: 3da9d9
>Postal's a little different in that you don't have to go on a murderous rampage

Nope, you're thinking of Postal 2 (which actually has this as a feature and introduces NPCs in the deliberate attempt to piss you off into killing them). The original Postal was basically an automatic fail state if you didn't go on a murderous rampage.
>> No. 54526 ID: 3da9d9
The whole dark brooding "darkness inside me" is actually so ridiculously over the top that it's almost hilarious.

I'm acting interested in the game and fighting the police/military. Going around shooting digital NPCs that just run from you isn't terribly interesting to me, but the way how about a dozen SWAT team cops storm the building you're in looks cool.

Hell, it would make a good twin stick shooter. Like, Geometry Wars: So Edgy I Cut Myself To Feel The Pain edition.

Trying to pick out a video card for my new rig. Should I go with the Nvidia 970 or the AMD 290?

I'm thinking about going with the 290 since the 970 has that 3.5GB problem.

Pic related, My case.

Primer, I've gone AMD my last three cards with my last Nvidia purchase being an 8800. Since AMDs drivers have come leaps and bounds up in quality there cards have been rock solid enough to keep my business.

I've read great things about the Sapphire 290X Vapour and Tri X's mentioned in >>54456, however at the time I purchased my 290 they wanted too much money for them considering other cards on the market. Ended up going with an ASUS 290 DC2OC and haven't had any issues with hardware or performance. Prices have since come down a bit so if you can afford a nice 290 or 290X go for it.

AMD is coming out with a new gen soonish but you have to look at what it will likely cost and if you want to be part of the first gen buyer club to sit through potential hardware and software issues.

Okay, it sounds like I'll stick with the 290 then.

Thanks for the info fellas!

>I didn't know that the 960 has 4GB of VRAM.
It comes in 2gb and 4gb versions. The 4GB is only 128bit VRAM GDDR5, though, and the 970 uses 256 bit. That's why even with the 3.5GB effective ram on the 970, it still outperforms the 960 4GB even with the 960's larger ram pool. Double the amount of data is processed per clock cycle on the 256-bit RAM than the 128-bit, so a smaller pool still pushes more data through in less time.
>> No. 54478 ID: d11521
I'm more or less in the same situation. Except I still have the original graphic card (Asus 560ti DC2) because I don't have much money to spend and frankly what I play isn't that demanding GPU wise. On the other hand I really should OC the CPU a bit more and get at more fans and reapply thermal paste, this trashcan is getting kind of noisy.
