I either don't recall or blocked those moments from memory. I recall the frantic firefights of Sea Rigs, the blackhawks coming in under heavy fire over Lost Village (no Para), a night map were the CAR-15 and VSS reigned supreme, I remember holding a small isolated flag on El Al against a combined ground and air attack. Also the A-10 was fun.

Bought RO2/Rising Storm during Christmas 2014 Steam sale.

Downloaded, installed, played about 2 hours worth of matches where I would simply spawn and die in under 5 seconds because I'd immediately get cut down by MG fire upon spawning. Promptly uninstalled, tried to get a refund, couldn't.

For all the praising I saw about RO2, that game can go fuck itself. RO1, despite Arad being seemingly the only map ever played, was infinitely superior. Bought Insurgency on a whim and it's better than RO1/2 could ever hope to be while getting a fraction of the recognition.

I think you guys are being a little critical. That's been my experience in just about any combat-oriented FPS type game for years.
It's why I'v kind of gravitated to more "hardcore" type stuff like ARMA, and am interested in Squad, etc. and don't play arcadey shit lie CoD, TF, etc. anymore.
If you can literally throw a knife/axe/grenade from the spawn without taking a step, and hit enemies; your maps are too fucking small.

Battlefield 4 was a shitstorm of shitty coding and botched decisions and management. I'm still shot feet behind cover, near 10-15 seconds after I ran behind it, on a Cable modem.

Plus they make a point of advertising these games as so "tactical" and "realism mechanics" then it's all look at this sooper awesome gun never made, Desert Eagle bullshit; oh look we're Swedish so we'll make the AK5 amazing even though the last time Sweden was involved in a war we paid Nazis not to invade; full auto fire while sprinting nonstop around the map; but an LMG is worthless unless prone and with a bipod; you can carry only 2 grenades, an either a defibrillator or an undermount grenade launcher, but an engineer can carry a full combat loadout, 5 AT4s, and an EOD bot or C4, etc.
and what's backblast lol? especially in a scout helo? So that a scout helo can have triple the firepower of an attack helo?

I don't mind not necessarily "not true to life" but at least be consistent (in BF4 the Desert Eagle did 80 dmg when first dropped IIRC but main infantry rifles do about 30) .

Also they need to find some sort of mechanic where spawn camping can't happen, like you guys suggested, and you can't just be swamped by a mass of X fresh spawns all at once just appearing out of thin air and wrecking someone who has been fighting hard to cap a point just by virtue of he can't aim and fire in 7 different directions simultaneously. It's 2016 guys. We can do better than the same map mechanics with the same problems as BF1942 (released 2002).

Necrobump!

So...anyone still playing KSP? I'm playing on Career Mode, and fuck I'm having a hard time of it. Build shit that as far as I can tell should be flying straight up gets pulled off at an angle early into the flight, but there shouldn't be any sources of drag to cause that. In a lot of my builds I've resorted to angled fins to stabilize via rotation, but that basically means I'm stuck with a totally vertical first stage, or whenever I'm out of atmo.

Also, goddamn reentry is a BITCH now. Drogue cutes are so far down the line, and because of problem A, my reentries are too vertical.

It's fun to try and problem solve this shit...but damn if it isn't frustrating sometimes.

watch scott manley's videos.

https://www.youtube.com/user/szyzyg/featured

He has tutorials, does a weekly hour+ long stream on twitch, and actually knows orbital mechanics and orbital science calculations.

He also recommends mods like Ferrum Aerospace for better aerodynamics, B9 Aerospace for more parts, Scatterer for better atmospheric renderings.

As far as your stability issues, could be inconsistencies in mods, some formerly massless parts now have mass in post 1.0 release, could be your reaction wheels arent strong enough for your rocket, etc. Aerodynamics arent the greatest either in stock KSP, so a lot of players recommend Ferrum Aerospace, an improved aero calculation system which is coded by a guy who actually studies aero as a profession.

Try using a space plane as a first stage and then trying to dock with a refueling station, the fucking package clips through the plane half the time, exploding.

After finishing NV for the milionth time, I caught a slight nostalgia to repeat F3.
What mods to get to make the experience better? Im interested in graphical improvements foremost.
Also, where does one get mods other than nexus and moddb?

Hey so I was told to post here, 4chan's /v/ and /b/ are currently playing this game and we are looking for allies and members.
http://www.hellrising.com/index.php

The game is a horror survival mmo/simulator. You play as a character stuck in the quarantined city of serling. You can play as a human, vampire or zombie and try to fight it out and survive. It has gameplay similar to Urban dead except with more options like trading/crafting and 73 skills to buy rather than 40.

Anwyays give it a try if you want
Here is the group join if you want

>On March 15, 2016 Crytek announced a new version of Cryengine dubbed "Cryengine V". It features Direct3D 12 and VR support and a new licensing model which allows you to pay as much as you want to use it. The money which you'll pay can be split between the further development of the engine and funding "promising" Indie titles. From now on the company releases the engine's full source code.
I haven't actually seen any of their code or what it is licensed under, but this seems interesting considering how you can choose to spend your monies.

It might make some more competitive developments versus the usual 3D stays of Darkplaces and Unity.

As for dumping Windows, have either [DETERMINATION] or patience.

Releasing October of this year with an MSRP of $399. You'll need one of those playstation cameras to use it, so tack on another $50 or so.

I'm really looking forward to playing Ace Combat with one of these things on.

https://www.playstation.com/en-au/explore/playstation-vr/
https://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/ace-combat-7-ps4/

Also, i'm hoping for support of thing like GTA as the first person mode in GTA V would be really cool with something like this.

I know a few of you have already ordered a Vive or Rift, this seems a bit more my speed at the moment as i'm really hesitant to splurge on the first generation of what I anticipate to be a rapidly evolving technology. Anyone else in the same boat?

Now that is proper use of one of those goofy ass Oculus Rift things.

That's for some kind of launch bundle with all the toys, as far as I can tell. The headset it'self will be $400.

>Stay in your peasantry.
The PC headsets, while preferable, are more expensive and are more likely to be replaced by better performing variants much faster. That and I don't have to upgrade my PC along with buying a headset.

Also, Ace Combat.

  Obsidian's got a new game. Looks moderately more interesting than PoE's brownie batter D&D setting.

A while back you may have heard about some new Descent game that was a FPS MOBA made by some nobodies from the Star Citizen forums who managed to obtain the license.

Well this isn't that. A bunch of former Parallax/Volition people have gotten together and are doing a proper sequel.

However they're only at $175,000 with 3 days left, so I'm hoping it picks up over the last couple days or that they've got some angel investors waiting in the wings.
>> No. 57600 ID: 254d85
And it got funded. It was a pretty close thing too, they hit $300k with 2 hours left and only went $6500 over their goal. (and hopefully they weren't lowballing like some kickstarters.)

Anyone else playing SUPERHOT?
I will say first off the 'Story' is very short for the price tag but I would argue it makes up for it with the Challenges and alternate modes.

For those of you who don't know it is a first person shooter that moves mostly in slow motion. It speeds up time when you do actions like moving, punching, picking up objects and the sorts.
It lets you do some crazy stuff that is border line Matrix. Throwing a keyboard at a guy to disarm him of his gun and snatching it out of midair before spinning around to shoot his buddy while dodging between his bullets, spinning back around to see the last guy to shoot him when a katana wielding bad-ass tries to cut you up but you throw your empty gun at him and taking his sword to slice a bullet in half right before it hits you and throwing your katana across the room into him.

I can completely see some people would think the price tag is a bit hefty but I would say it is worth it. There is an early version you can play on their website unless you are using Chrome. The story is short yet decently interesting, though I would put the gameplay above the story any day of the week. It is one of the most innovative shooters I've seen in years.

Its quite fun, and Im enjoying the cerebral aspect of it.

Also watching the replays in real time is quite fun to see how operator you are.

I played the Demo a while back and had a lot of fun. Really like how this game plays. Thinking about buy it but also money is a serious issue for me right now.

This video made me laugh for some reason.
