  Is anyone else still playing this?

finally unfucked my router, and have been playing mwo.

And jesus christ, and I doing well.

I just dropped into a CW attack with 8 of my fellow Steiner PUGs, and 3 random unit members. This was the song I played at the start. Glory ensued.

Double posting again, sorry. Forgot to offer advice on the whole mech purchase question.

With 23 million you can kit out a pretty good MadCat and begin grinding out mech skills and stuff. This is where choosing cheaper mechs from the IS side might be an advantage though.

To move on to the second tier of the Mech Skill/Pilot Skill tree, you need to hit basic proficiency on three variants of the same chassis. That means if you want to get the mech skills maxed for T-Wolfs, you need to save up the 15+ million credits for another 2 variants as well.

Buying a BL-KNT is cheaper per chassis, leaving more money for weapons and upgrades like DHS, Endo or FerroFib armor, and engines. Then you still have money left to buy an entire other IS mech, or another BL-KNT, or whatever.

Both will serve you well, its more a matter of do you want to be able to try out more mechs besides the one you are grinding and the trial mechs, or is one mech for the moment ok? Oh, that's another thing. Aside from the Origins Clan mechs, Clan Mechs are locked to a single engine and you can't upgrade the speed at all unless you get to Tier 2 Proficiency and unlock Speed Tweak. Take that into consideration too. You're going to be travelling a lot slower in a Clan mech, generally, than IS mechs in your same weight class because they can switch engines at will.

They're winning now, too. Clan space is currently cut into isolated pockets, and i've been having a blast shitting on jade falcon players whenever I can.

>>57276
IS mechs are ultimately more cusotmizable, and SOME of the weapons are actually better in practice.

As far as meta goes, clan mechs win.

If you're not going full meta, fuck clan mechs. Dicking with loadouts is the true joy of mechwarrior.

Buy an IS mech, poke around reddit/the forums/here, and buy different things as it strikes your fancy.

>>57276
Bear in mind, i'm actually low tier. I'll see if I can upload me dueling a moron in an enforcer in my crab-equal weight and similar loadout-he lost because he didn't twist in between firing.

Short video.
Should show just how fucking useful torso twisting is-I wlak out with my profile red, but no structure damage.

we have roughly the same firepower, but the other guy isn't twisting, so I can core him out faster than he he can kill me.

I have finally started to get that reflex procedure into my skull. It's helped massively. Especially with waiting for cooling because I am sort of shit for managing my heat sink lacking mech.

I recorded a video of a match testing software and hardware. I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the round when I have a load of points, considering it was a mess at times.

I'll post it unlisted on youtube. Please excuse the laggy/juttery quality as my HDD is a touch too slow I think for recording. Enjoy my disgusting slideshow basically.

You may want to make a heat efficient weapon group, especially if you're brawling a lot.

Anytime i'm using LPLs, I set two to an independent group. Reason being that LPLs are super heat efficient for the damage they put out, so I know I can shoot them consistently and keep fighting

  Just FYI, the cold-war to modern day World of Tanks went open beta today, for those of you that are interested. Seems less grindy than War Thunder, also there's a really solid co-op game type as well, instead of just PVP.

The tank actually isn't that bad. It'll dish out a decent amount of damage, and protect against shot placement well enough, but the reload times and speed of the tank itself are awful.

Positioning is all, don't be the one who rushes forward with no scouts in the open.

  Hysteria over video game bikini girls playing beach volleyball.
Koei announced they weren't going to bring Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 to the west because of the hassle from hysterical nincompoops complaining how women are objectified in video games. I suggest they could make an option in the game to have the female characters all wear burkas to satisfy the extreme feminists and extreme religious fundamentalists (both agree they want to censor things from society that they don't like), but on November 25, the developer of PC dating sim/puzzle game HuniePop offered $1 million to Koei Tecmo in exchange for the rights to publish DOAX3 in the United States.
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/165216-HuniePop-Offers-1-Million-for-Right-to-Publish-Dead-or-Alive-Xtreme-3-in-US

Or perhaps this announcement from Koei was just a publicity stunt to generate free press and discussion of their game and also force a backlash against the annoying prudes that want to censor video games.

  If DoAX3 is anything like the previous one, it's going to suck.
Unless they get rid of the game mechanic where you buy gifts for the various beach bunnies to curry their favor so they will play beach games with you. The PSP Dead or Alive Paradise game was ruined with that whole goofy gift-giving gimmick. Lose that. Just have a menu of games to play with bikinis, items and cash awarded as achievements for winning. The island casino needed a strip poker game. BIG TIME. And a bunch of fighting games from boxing to MMA beat-downs to gladiator knife fights. Pillow fights for the squeamish. Put this together and we got something.

It was probably for publicity. I didn't know they still made these games. Seriously, people to mind their own business, and have their faces smashed in for this level of ****.

I know it's hard guys, but every time we play dead or alive, a young girl hides in a latrine full of raw sewage to stay safe. Please stop this atrocity.

Life is all about perspective, and people who think this game exploits women simply haven't played DoA, it actually exploits horny males, tricking them into paying premium prices for an otherwise lousy series of games. Also they've never had to hide in raw sewage or they'd realize there are worse things on earth that bikinis.

Anybody else pick up the PC release? It's running really smoothly for me and mouse controls feel fine. I've put in about five hours so far and it seems pretty cool, sort of a Japanese take on the Gothic/Risen style of EuroRPG.

Hot tip: Once you reach the first city a fast travel item is put into your stored inventory at the inn. The game doesn't tell you about this at all.

If you simply kill a crap load of dragons while making sure you steal throughout the entire game, you can have half your party doing 9999 dmg during the endgame or before. Freya's Dragon Crest does more damage for each dragon you kill and the same with Zidane's Thievery except with stealing. There's a spot to farm high level dragons in that tunnel before you get to Burmecia, the entrance to it is near two moogles who warn you about it before you to it.


Love this game though, only FF I've ever beaten. So much shit to discover, soundtrack is amazing, its a last hurrah of the old FF settings so no edgy teenagers riding around on motorcycles, and the characters are actually pretty fun to play with, especially Quina's Blue Magic. Amarant is really fucking OP though since can heal, revive and deal out shitloads of damage by throwing your junk weapons.

Using Quina's Lvl 5 Death on those level 65 Grand Dragons above Gizamaluke's Grotto you mentioned is the #1 fastest, easiest way to power-level and do all that. If memory serves, they reward 3AP per battle before Ability Up too, so learning skills is a breeze as well.

I received the Steam Controller I ordered last year today, here are my first impressions after about 4 hours of use.

This controller is like a crystallization of the concept of PC gaming. What I mean by that is that it's a technically superior to all other comparable controllers in features, customization and function. The other side of the coin is that you're going to have to do some legwork to make it work right. Namely you need customize the profiles to suit your style. Sure there are some pretty good official profiles out there for some games but most are just 1:1 copies of Xbox controller scheme.

The first game I tried it with was War Thunder, a WW II F2P multiplayer flight-sim / tankfest. I tried the standard controller profile and it was pretty bad. So I delved into the controller profile editor to make my own. Took about 15-20 minutes to come up with something that worked fairly well. I set the D-pad to WASD with overlap for pitch and roll and the Right pad I used as a mouse for precise aiming. This worked much better than the PS3 Dual Shock that I've tried in the past. But still left much room for improvement. Then I took a look at a few user submitted profiles and realized that the Steam Controller has a very accurate gyro that can be mapped as a mouse.
I've since tried this method of control in a Realistic Air battle against human opponents and it's damn near as good as a mouse and keyboard. The only problem is that like a lot of new control methods it takes a while to get used to it but I got 3 kills in my first fly-out with this profile and was pretty impressed by this little thing.

I've also tried fallout 4 as a test of how well this works in FPS games and it's a whle different ballgame, in War Thunder you don't have to make fast and accurate mouse movements at a moments notice but in FPS you need to turn 180 degrees and blow a raiders head of right the fuck now the Gyro doesn't cut it alone. I cobbled together a system where I use the track-pad as a ball mouse that I can flick around for fast movement and then transition to gyro with a grip button as a modifier for accuracy. This is getting much harder to get used to but it's OK for single player games if you're not playing on the higher difficulties.

In summary The Steam Controller is a very good and extremely versatile customizable controller. Won't beat KB+M but gets pretty damn close with the right settings. I'm getting a new TV pretty soon and once my steam Link arrives I can get comfy and play on my couch. But when the chips are down and I absolutely have to hit a Mofo in the head with flick-shot I'll use KB+M for that extra edge.

After more hours of couch gaming I can distill my opinion a bit.

1. The Steam controller should never be used as a 1:1 replacement for dual analog controllers, this is the number one reason it is bashed by reviewers, they're used to dual analog and the touchpads simply don't cut it in that role. Because you can't center them so you get drift and you lose position easily.

2. In regards to dual analog controllers the Steam controller is superior in every regard, BUT ONLY IF USING THE TOUCHPADS AS MOUSE OR MOUSEJOY.

From these two points I've inferred the true POU (philosophy of Use *Smacks swollen Nutnfancy lips*) of The Steam Controller:
To enable PC gamers to play on the couch with some ability no matter the game. There really isn't anything else to it and for that purpose it is more than fine, I've played through The Disappearance of Ethan Carter, several hours of 80 days, 1,5 hours of Final Fantasy VI, 1 hour of Primordia (2d mouse driven adventure game) and 2 hours of Blood Dragon. With the exception of Blood Dragon I got into groove with the controls in no time. With Blood Dragon it took about an hour until I got proficient enough to not constantly die like a bitch, by the 2 hour mark I was in a shape where I could with a bit of luck knock over an outpost on medium difficulty with only a few attempts.

I'm looking forward to hearing about your Steam Link review.

I've heard of some people having frame rate issues with theirs, but I wonder if that's because they have shitty routers.

KB+M for FPS, no other substitute other than some kind of Zapper gun.


I mostly use this controller for playing 3rd person or side scrolling games.
>> No. 57167 ID: 254d85
>>57161
So it seems like it's more intended to provide a way to control PC games with a gamepad, than as a full replacement for a regular twin stick gamepad.

How is the D-pad for stuff like fighting games/platforming?
>> No. 57168 ID: 031806
>>57167
I don't play platformers or fighters but I feel the d-pad is not suitable for that type of use. Use a controller with a real dpad or a fightstick.
>> No. 57198 ID: 8c5d06
I've been using the steam controller for quite a while now. I've played over 20 hours worth of different games using the controller and I'm still finding new neat features and tricks to improve the experience. The main thing that I've noticed is that I'm flat out playing more when I'm sitting on the couch, I don't alt-tab constantly and break the flow so to speak, because I would have to get off my ass to do it. If I have to find a guide or something I can use the built in Steam Browser with the controller. for the first time in years I've made a decent dent in my backlog. Also I've heard the gyro is awesome when playing racing games, going to test that out next.

Totally. It had promise starting out, but they missed out on a LOT of opportunities with it and played it safe.

>I also went through stints in Shadowbane, Darkfall, Mortal, etc. It's always so disappointing to see these ambitious MMOs fail so hard though, mainly because the MMO market at large is always afraid of games based on open world PvP and PKing
Agreed, I am a big fan of Shadowbane, Darkfall, and mortal as well. But you are correct, a lot of developers are afraid to take risks and they really really need to start. Because we need to shake off the comfort of WoW clones.

>I guess my main issue is just that MMOs are always so controlled and on-rails these days, I just like the concept of every player having nearly absolute freedom to do what they want.
My thoughts exactly. Theres a new one coming out tht might be right up your alley called "The Repopulation" or something to that effect. Its basically Fallen Earth + SWG pre CU on an alien planet.

Also Camelot Unchained is coming along nicely (Im in the Alpha).

Check out the classes (as they have been revealed. Some are really fucking cool (Im looking at you Black Rider).

Right. That's why I never got into WoW much or anything either. There's really no "game" to it. If you die you go get your body and your stuff is a little damaged. Hurt your pocketbook, which is directly influenced by how much you play. Everything about it was designed to be a time sink to keep you wrapped up and paying the subscription fee.
Tried the same stuff with Diablow 3 and it sucked. I'm not sure if Blizzard has the talent left who knows how to make a good non-MMO type game. Their Heroes of the Storm team actually got laid off after it went "gold" I guess, cuz they expected it to die off in short order.

If you want a game that is what diablo 3 was supposed to be, check out Path of Exile and Grim Dawn.

Any of you faggots ever play DayZ Standalone? Its probably the worst early access game to ever get so far, the devs are incompetent as all hell, and it was supposed to be going into Beta this month or the next but thats nowhere near happening as they are at least a year behind schedule.

With that out of the way, its fun as fuck if you have a couple of guys who understand the mechanics of it. Best gunfights in any game ever.

Picture related, these are the moments that make the game worth playing, we created a community outside the Berezino police station, a community of cannibals with broken legs.

The edge on the Steam community forums is prime example of actual edginess. By no means is it the autistic bullshit with teleporting behind you to backstab you, but it's there alright. It doesn't fucking help that with every new update for SA that seemingly feeds into that mentality.

But if there's one thing that just makes me fucking hate SA all the more is how everyone attempts to justify the idiotically empty cities and "veteran" players wanting everyone else to go out hide out in the woods and farm. Would it fucking kill the devs and community to not have you on the verge of starvation when you first spawn?

Yeah, I'm disgruntled and shit.
