The steam Eploration sale is on right now and I pulled the trigger on a game I've been looking at for a while now, The long Dark

It's an early access game, currently it only has sandbox survival mode, the premise is that you've crash-landed in northern Canada during winter due to a X-class solar flare fucking up anything that had a circuit. You must find supplies and survive as long as you can. Oh and did I mention that the wolves decided that now was the time to rise up and dethrone man as the apex predator, fuckers linger around clusters of houses and will fuck you up unless you happen to find a rifle.

I was lucky enough to stumble into a forestry station and currently comfying the place up.

They want to put in some kind of mystery. There is a secret bunker somewhere already and the campaign is about uncovering some secrets.

But I totally agree, the game as of it is now is fun for 3-5 hours and 1 run and that's it.

It's supposed to be a trilogy, eventually. There are going to be multiple story arcs, or at least that's what I understand. I knew they were shooting for a "WTF happened?" arc and also a "get home to your family" arc.

Bought this game during the Steam Explore sail.

My review:
- It breathes cheese, wine & baguette, it's so French. In a good way.
- The hints system is pretty neat.
- It's pretty great. The story is decent, the art is very nice, the mechanics are passable.
- It's ending is right in the feels.

I could easily forgive it's limitations and obvious fuckups (really, how many times do you cross the time front line like it's nothing?).

Give it a look if you like oldskool puzzle/adventure games.

>How was the second one, Red River, any better or worse?
I never played the second one; too many other games to buy at the time, you know?

But I heard the combat was much more focused, and missions were more intense, but the map exploration was much more limited and the gameplay much more CoD-like and linear; you aren't ever encouraged or really allowed to leave pre-planned mission corridors to take more stealthy routes of attack. Also, I think the campaign was shorter and IIRC, the console versions omitted the map editor. I may be wrong on the editor, though.
>> No. 51476 ID: c044b5
much worse, feels like a really clunky shooter where you get driven around, and run long distances. Also the graphics went way down hill somehow.
>> No. 51490 ID: fd37d3
red river was such a improvement. granted there was to much cutscenes riding in humvees and knox never shut up but i love RR. the controls are improved but teammate AI is still a gagglefuck. theres like 10 campaign missions and 6 fireteam engagement missions. online is still up and people still play unlike dragon rising servers. if you get it on ps3 let me know, iv put 300 hours into it.

Are there any grand strategy games that cover more than one or a few eras? I'd like to see one that goes from a medieval (or earlier) era into the 20th or even 21st century.

EU3 covers 1399-1821, but I was wondering if there were ones that covered more ages.

  I recently rediscovered the standard by which I judged all driving games when I was 10 years old. To this date Whiplash stands alone.

It is abandonware now, cd image and installation instructions can be found here: http://get-good.net/index.php?title=Fatal_Racing I'm playing on easy mode because I suck.

find a ts3 to play on i can suggest the heros and generals open team speak at
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.
>> No. 51454 ID: 885afe
Started playing it today.

Holy shit am I a destroyer of german worlds with the garand.

I was holding down a point when I noticed a jeep heading my way. I fired two shots rapidly, two head shots (driver and gunner) Swiveled to see incoming fire, three shots, three kills took no damage.


His name is Swift Venturi. Because thats why.

Supposedly the game is mirror balanced, but IDK. I can't hit shit with the G43 even with upgrades. Captured Garands I rape with. Even unmodified.

One thing that kind of does piss me off is how your character becomes an emotional wreck if you murder a lot of people. Now before the edge cuts you, this wouldn't be such a bad thing IF YOU WEREN'T KILLING PEOPLE WHO WERE TRYING TO KILL YOU.

>sneaking around
>get caught
>guy grabs a shotgun
>yelling how he's going to kill me
>I sneak up behind him and punch him off the second floor
>he falls and dies
>I loot and go home
>"OMG we murderer now, much guilt, very sad, gonna Linkin Park to death."

The game could use a patch or two. One other thing that annoys me is there's no way (that I know of) to increase your inventory space. It's just a matter of luck on which characters you start out with.

And then of course there's the whole thing involving soldier rape... oh do I got your attention now? 4chan's already demanding mods of this.
