This was the game that I heard would continue going after you stopped playing.

Part of that sounds cool but if you can only play infrequently its sounds like a real pain. Ultimately was the reason I've so far passed on it.

I'd love if it had an offline component to play the game without having to connect to a server and to be able to play without being penalized for not dedicating every moment to the game.

Might have been better if it was more MMO-ish with quite a few people able to share one "world". Having a group of friends or clan playing would probably be fun and allow someone to probably be online most of the time but as far as I know the game doesn't even have co-op.

Really the 'stuff continues to happen while you're gone' isn't as bad as it sounds. It caps out at like a few days in game before it stops ticking, and even then it just reduces your supplies a tiny bit.

There's still a raft of other problems with the game, mind you, but that one is sorta meh.
>> No. 49495 ID: 5eb739
It was really fun in the beginning but got quite boring after like 10 hours. Same missions always, have to "grind" 10 different characters etc.
Still a good direction I think, maybe the State of Decay 2 will be even better.

They get Minecraft and all the other Mojang games nobody has ever heard of and can exploit them to their fullest. That means they get the dosh from sequels, ports, and however else they can exploit the games. As noted in the article Minecraft is profitable already and is continuing to increase in popularity and profit.

Minecraft can also be used as a "gateway drug" for other MS games or apps, it wouldn't be too hard to put links in game lobbies or load screens to other games. Whoever plays the game gets exposure to MS products.

>>49163
I doubt anyone would buy a 400 dorrar system just for computer legos. Maybe have exclusive content or earlier updates for Xbox systems to make it more attractive to Minecraft fans but still, they would buy it just for that one game but the extra shit might well be a tipping point into them going Xbox.

Microsoft would be wise to leave the game on competing systems to make money off those systems and to get a foot in the door of competitors for gamers to be more exposed to MS. Either way they are making money off the game.

This. Microsoft now has Minecraft, and all rights to 0x10C, which generated a great deal of interest amongst minecraft players before suspension.

find a ts3 to play on i can suggest the heros and generals open team speak at 91.250.118.151
great guys over there, I have no internet till thrus so I wont be able to introduce you to anyone but say you are a friend of max cups and just getting started they should be some help.

for real advice, save up dont buy modified ammo for your guns it drains credits like no other. play 'training' before you do anything else and im not talking training missions. after you play training you get a free lvl and a free perk/badge.

capturing points is ther only thing that matters in matches, they net you both the most xp and credits but they also help you to win the match. unlock the kubal or jeep as quick as possible then I would say get a rocket launcher as your first new weapon but its crazy expensive to use so thats up to you. every vehical minus the motocycles have the ability to bring either a health and ammo kit or a panzerfaust that takes 30 or so seconds to respawn after picking up. health/ammo kit is essential but there are situations the faust box is better but those are few.

also everything you use needs to be replenished so when viewing the weapon or equipment make sure you have it sent to auto replenish or you will find yourself in the middle of the match with no more gernades or ammo when you spawn.

i would suggest to just start with one character keep him a soldier forever once you get him up in lvl's invest in a second character and see where you want to take him, whether you want to make him a tanker or a pilot or a para or a recon or a general or even just a second soldier but with a different loadout.

different weapons unlock certain other weapons, if you like machine guns keep using the g43 if you would rather use the firehose that is the mp40 you need to use the mp34 shit gun for a while to unlock the mp40. gold can curcomvent all of these unlock things but it aint cheap. using gernades and explosives helps you unlock more explosives, mines, bazokas, more gernades, at gernades ect. same goes for classes you have to have a certain badge para drop nine to unlock the fg42 and same goes for unlocking tanks you gotta grind that tank badge. lucky for pilots the only thing they unlock is more bombs on the plane, piloting in this game is kinda lame in my opinion and only use it rarely when there is a tank that needs to die.

i have the most experience playing as german but i have a couple lvl 10's on american and know every single weapon of theirs to a tee. the tompson is a god send and so is the bar. the bar is probably the best gun in the game at this moment, you see one pick it up.

Seems like they've reduced the cost of zooka ammo down by about half. Still too much, compared to the cost of tank ammo and repair, but it's a step.

I read 1632, Nazis in Fantasyland Quest and I want to run a campaign that's similar. I don't think there's a name for such a genre. Zipang, Lest Darkness Fall and a Conneticuit Yankee In King Arthur's Court are other examples.

Instead of a West Virginia town circa 2000AD, though? It'd be a southern Italian fishing village and military port during the 80s, when fascist & communist terrorist groups were running around. And instead of 1632 Europe, it'd be a fantastical setting with magic and gods.

What'd be a good system that can stat out a pikeman, modern soldier, /and/ have magic? Preferably with a crunchy mass combat system.

Does anyone have any links to articles or even pics of the Italian Navy during the 1980s, btw?
>> No. 49087 ID: f2400b
Uh... well, I don't know how accurate this is going to be for your needs, but in very very VERY rough terms, Shadowrun might fit. You can stat out modern soldiers by not packing them to the gills with chrome, it has a magic system, and melee is something built in (including spear/pikemen)

It doesn't really have great mass combat systems, though. You might try asking /tg/ because they'll likely have a better idea.

Do you know how infantry sections/squads would be organized, so I could inventory out firearms? What about shotguns, pistols & SMGs? Or BM59s for recruits? What about ammo, total? Spares ammo/parts/guns that could be on the ship or on base?

x1 ACM Iveco 80/90 4X4 Logistics Truck

I didn't get Battlefield 4 ever. 3 was the last one I gave an honest chance, and 4 was clearly just more of the same (but with Asians and bad netcode).

2142 was the last good Battlefield game, shame its setting is being cannibalized for DLC.

I haven't played many space sims in the past years & most of them that I did play, played well with keyboard and mouse. Heck, nowadays many of the space sims have a large advantage for mouse players due to the finer aim & no need for autoaim.
But I remember from the old days, how much fun I had with space sims & joysticks. It was really part of the experience and it was great.
My last joystick was a Sidewinder & it was pretty good, until it lost the ability to zero itself & would drift off.

Anyhow, with a new generation of space sims coming on, I was thinking of getting a joystick again.

My short list:
Thrustmaster T.16000M: Great precision, good quality, but no HOTAS and shitty throttle.
Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X: Cheapo HOTAS, but gets the job done. Lacks hats.
CH fighterstick & throttle: Oldskool as fuck, and solid as hell. But looks silly nowadays.The way the X & Y axis interact make me think it might not be the best choice for me, but the hardcore space simmers seem to love it.
Saitek X55 Rhino: Sexy & good all around. Even has split throttle & everything. But it's Saitek... They're known to drop the ball fairly frequently on the X52.

I'm currently leaning towards the X55. But I'm having doubts. The T.16000M might be a better choice to get me going until some new stuff comes along. Supposedly, Star Citizen will work together with companies to make SC joysticks that are a perfect fit for the game's mechanics for instance.

What's your take on this?

I picked up my T.Flight Hotas X for peanuts on sale at MicroCenter. Great for the cost.

I'm agreeing with the collected Operators about rudders as I fly in Star Citizen, though. Twist ruddering is annoying. Might have to buy some pedals when I upgrade my video card.

Pic related. Can't wait to start racing it next week.
