The fact that Mucking the Latrine is even a thing amuses me greatly.

Too bad I can't actually assign people to that as a full-time job/punitive detail. I'd love to see what Samquanch, Esq.'s opinion of that would be.

Anyway, basically, it's different from the base game. You start with a couple Army guys, and you have to secure your base from the zambeez. Afterwards, you have to go extract some HVTs from the zombie-infested city, and after every other mission or so, or after a while of fucking off and looting stuff, you have to fight off a zombie assault on your base. If they survive, you get to extract the civvies and get goodies for doing so.

I'm actually having more fun with this than I did with the base game/Breakdown, probably partly because of the new area, and partly due to kicking so much zombie ass.

It is also significantly harder than the base game; everyone got a downgrade in their survivability and the zombies got a little tougher, especially because if you try to, say, just roll into downtown you're going to get nonstop mobbed by zombies until you escape. Vast portions of the map are no-go zones.

However, to even the score some, you can call in several different kinds of arty or drone strikes ('cause you's da army), along with something like 40 new shooters (As well as being able to find all the Breakdown guns, if you have that too). I kinda like tooling around town in my up-armored pickup truck wielding a CZ Evo 3.

Haven't beaten it yet, because I'm still too busy trying to evac all the civies I can find.

There's even an obnoxious hippy communist radio announcer for you to hate on.

Shoot the damn thing in the guts (not the head) until he leans over, then whale on him. Much easier than letting Squanch try to fist-fight it to death.

Have you used smartphones these days? I bet you could program a smart phone to look like that.

>>47151
>Bullshit, what phone looks like that?

Yes, because Ubisoft is going to make an iPhone or Nexus in the game. Jesus, look at Watch_Dogs.

As for the capabilities - it's not stretching the imagination. Smart phones are doing some pretty amazing shit now. Even in the storyline of the game it makes sense - you have to activate towers that jam comms. You can't even use your map (read: no cell coverage) in areas you haven't de-activated towers in. The in-game "almanac" thing is also access in the pause menu "phone" as well. Notice how whenever you kill or discover something you have to enter it to read it? The CIA guy that writes the passages about shit on the island sends it to you a'la a text message.

yeah I am serious ...and btw relax your anus . I didn't say FC3 was in ANY way a "bad" game or really even that flawed .

Yeah it has it's flaws. The enemy a.i. is still kinda dumb even on the hardest setting , and the non carnivorous animals are way too dumb as well this is a populated island and they would know after generations to avoid the ones that walk upright on two legs whenever possible.

The menu system is sort of non-immersive but I'm not going to nitpick it as as you mentioned : smartphone.

As far as generational curve FC3 is flat out better than 2 and by extension 2 is better than 1 . Placing FC3 as top dog of the heap by de fecto.

I have high hopes for 4 even though let's be honest Ubisoft will still focus on consoles first and invariably fuck something up ..for the most recent evidence just look at the WAY beyond overhyped watchdogs.

If they genuinely cared as opposed to played strictly according to the triple A publisher playbook and focusing exclusively on sucking shareholder's knobs we would already have a "perfect" deification hits osculation in paradise simulator FPS.

but the real question is : Would it make a profit ?

Seriously dudes, if anyone has this for 360 they just released a patch that must have come out only a few months ago (which is odd for a 2008 game) and I notice significant changes in the AI behaviour. You literally can stealth now, it's still difficult but not as flawed, and no more xray vision enemies. Even without the camo suit, I can evade and engage much easier just by staying crouched.

Don't ask me how or why this happened 6 years after the game was released, but there you have it. Slotting floppies has never been this glorious

  Sup. As many of you know I am not a fan of MOBAs but I really really like smite.

Until monday you are able to play all the gods for free. They also recently released Janus, and balanced a bunch of shit.

Expect them to just sort of up and drop all support for it at a random interval when their shareholders or whatever decide it's not profitable to continue.

That's an entire dual-layer blu-ray (50 GB) plus a gigantic patch. That's ...INSANE! Why would they require such a huge file to go with the game?

PS3 Hard Drive requirements for disc play: 8 GB HDD space.
Gah! I have problems enough with an original release PS3 with its minuscule 60 GB HDD.

WolfNO looks spectacular, but that game will eat up a big part of your 500 GB memory.

They need large hard disc data to keep the game from slowing down with prolonged loading times?

But the big question is why hasn't Wolfenstein 3D been ported to the Sony PSP or PS Vita??
They ported the 1992 PC version to the PS3 and it includes trophies, but they did not port this to the portables??
Even the Game Boy Advance got a Wolfenstein 3D port!
This game would be GREAT for the small screen and limited controls of the portables.

Even better, an HD port for the Vita. Improved graphics and audio, but the same level layouts of Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny. Perhaps even an upgraded 3rd person shooter of the 1981 Castle Wolfenstein and 1984 Beyond Castle Wolfenstein that were on the Apple II and Commodore 64.

I don't wanna take this thread too far off topic, but the Wolfenstein Total Conversion is a lot of fun. Basically it's the original game, but converted to run on the Doom II engine.

First of all, it's a T-50-2, not a T-50.
Second: you don't think he might have a credit grinding tank in addition to that one?

Using gold in that situation was the right thing to to, Himmels is not a good map for scouting. Tier 8 is just low enough 8The T-50-2 could get into tier 10 games) that he might do some damage with prem, and he did.
Impressive play, IMHO.

I thought he played decently well. He stayed back when he should have and he was aggressive when the opportunities arose.
>> No. 47040 ID: 3ca206
Also, as others have pointed out, everything he was using was buyable with ordinary credits. With the constant events going on, staying stocked up on credits is easy these days, even without a premium tank or an account.
>> No. 47067 ID: 863076
Several times, he drove right in front of enemy tanks that had a shell loaded and either they didn't fire at him, or missed completely.
It's easy to pwn, when you're playing against morons who can't be bothered to shoot you.
The full gold setup doesn't make much of a difference.

Operators, i need your help.
I´m looking for 2 sets of the Terraclip product "Buildings of Malifaux". Most of the shops have marked it out-of-stock (it seems they aren´t produced anymore), or don´t ship international, or don´t ship in general. (i´m from Austria btw). I´ve found a trader on Ebay, but he´s selling them for ~100€/item, normally the prize is around ~40. Before i throw my money into the oven, does someone know of you a shop that is selling the Buildings AND does ship international, please? I´m looking for those since months!

Well, I think those tags pretty much sum up where this franchise is going.

CoD thread I suppose, since I played the free MP weekend on ghosts and was less than amused.

I think CoD4 was the last one I actually played a lot of and enjoyed, now its just same old same old rinse and repeat. I suppose you could say that about a lot of games though sadly, but as long as it sells and they make money why would they stop rolling out the free cash cow?

You don't NEED a sound card. If you're not an audiophile you'll be fine.

Some headphones come with usb soundcards and the like, so that might be an avenue to explore.

but workable, as the titan is only 10 inches long.

Id prefer micro-ATX for a bit more airflow space, but high-bypass fans on a good itx case would be. as the op has seen fit to address, and wth liquid cpu cooling the temps are going to be good.

You're going to be better served getting something other than the Geforce GTX 650. At the very least a 650 Ti.
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2014/05/08/amd-radeon-r7-265-review/3

R7 265 or GTX 750 Ti would be my recommendations, for about $30-50 more. Much better performance than the base 650.
