I played through it and like it. The Metro games are pretty awesome anyway. Metro Redux of 2033 fixes some minor things and has fewer load screens where they combined several levels. Looks a bit better and seems to run a bit better then the original.

Don't know what the difference between Last Light original and Redux is though.

Overall some fantastic games and probably the closest we are getting to sequels to Stalker. Though anyone going into the game should be aware while there are many similarities (some of the people who worked on Stalker formed 4A games and the novels the games are based on are kinda similar to Roadside Picnic) the gameplay is pretty different, Metro being a linear shooter compared to Stalker's open world design.

Probably the only thing bad about it is it along with Stalker has inspired some chav ass motherfuckers in Russia to completely fuck up some old bunkers and underground storerooms.

Metro 2033 was great. I ended up playing through it several times, Redux is essentially the director's cut edition and fixes a lot of bullshit like the Amoebas.

Last Light, I dunno. I played through it once and didn't feel any inclination to go back to it. It felt kinda like a "Red Dawn 2", something that missed the point of the original property. Or like how the two sequels to "Jarhead" are direct-to-DVD action movies.

The biggest improvement I noticed in Last Light Redux (never got around to finishing it, like you said it wasn't as good as 2033) was that they actually made Ranger mode playable. In the original release, there was no way to check your supplies at all, for some stupid reason. In Redux they add that to the journal screen, where it was in 2033.

Ever play Avalon Hill's solitaire game, B-17: Queen of the Skies (1981)? An interesting game where you fly your fortress to a target and back. Drive off enemy fighters and withstand flak over the target. Mechanical systems get damaged, crew get incapacitated, ammo runs low, oil leaks, engine fires, and all manner of unfortunate things can occur (such as dropping out of formation) as your mission drags on. Get back safely and continue to hopefully complete 25 missions to get you that ticket home.

B-17: Queen of the Skies is a strategy game which re-creates the early bombing missions and aerial combat of the B-17 (F Model) bombers of the US Eighth Air Force over Europe between October 1942 and May 1943. Movement to targets is through zones. Die rolls and game tables determine appearance, type, and position of enemy fighters. Charts are used to determine if hits are made, where the damage is located, and how serious the damage is. Game tables and die rolls also determine everything from the bomber's target and formation position to weather, flak, and German fighter opposition as the B-17 makes its way over land and sea to its target.

The game has a low complexity and typically, the playing time is generally less than one hour after your first few games.

B-17 is designed to be primarily a solitaire game. The player controls a B-17F Flying Fortress bomber, trying to survive German fighter attacks and drop its load of bombs on the selected target, then return home safely. Optionally, a second player can control the German fighters (to some degree; their appearance is determined randomly, but successive attacks are under the control of the German player). If each player has their own copy of B-17, then they can fly their bomber while playing the German fighters in their partner's game.

Interesting instructional training video on bomber crew flying evasive maneuvers in order to avoid anti-aircraft artillery fire. I remember reading interviews with older pilots who were flying bombing missions during the '91 Gulf War who also flew 20+ years previously in the Vietnam War. They could actually maneuver their nimble F-16 Falcons away from flak artillery shells that they saw. And when other attack aircraft flew effective flak and SAM suppression ahead of the bombers, the anti-aircraft problems quickly dwindled away.

Is that VR? That's fucking cool looking.

Man, i've been playing a lot of Insurgency and some Warthunder here and there.
Also kind of getting back into fractured space.
I bought Subnautica but haven't played it in some time.
This is all when i'm actually home, which I haven't been for most of the summer as I was in Texas for a few months.

The game is pretty much Insurgency in VR, played 8 vs 8. I've never toyed with VR but as I understand it, movement is handled via an analog stick on the controller. It looks fucking amazing, might buy me a VR set just for this.

Anybody else playing Battleborn? Just picked it up and tried a couple story missions, it's pretty fun. Pretty good mix of Borderlands-style co-op shooter with MOBA elements.

My Steam ID is godofthunder44 if anybody else is down for some Jolly Cooperation.

Alright well I'm late to the party on this, but who else plays this?

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to even start. So far I've stumbled through 3 of the towns and only been able to find 2 missions, the one in Ciudad de Oro (which isn't even on the map) and the Top Secret one in the military base which is border line impossible to do ATM since I only have a shitty pistol. There doesn't seem to be any walkthroughs or beginner guides on the internet. What the dick do I do? Also I'm broke as fuck from paying bartenders for leads to people that don't even appear in town anywhere. This is using the BSM mod.

I have two questions about the Hard Life configurator: How do the "Max hunger percent" and "Max weapon wear" work exactly?
Does setting "Max hunger percent" to 0% make so that mercs don't suffer from hunger? Does setting "Max weapon wear" to 100% make so that enemies can get weapons that are falling apart?

  The nations which are still dazzled by the sensuous glitter of precious metals, and are, therefore, still fetish-worshippers of metal money, are not yet fully developed money-nations. [Note the] contrast of France and England. The extent to which the solution of theoretical riddles is the task of practice, and is effected through practice, the extent to which true practice is the condition of a real and positive theory, is shown, for example, in fetishism. The sensuous consciousness of the fetish-worshipper is different from that of the Greek, because his sensuous existence is different. The abstract enmity between sense and spirit is necessary so long as the human feeling for nature, the human sense of nature, and, therefore, also the natural sense of man, are not yet produced by man's own labour.

>As you'd expect, these gambling sites work by letting players pay real-world money for a chance at a virtual item.

What difficulty?
>> No. 58273 ID: 86d09e
>>58265

Hurt Me Plenty. And sure, you'll say I should have done my first playthrough on Ultra-Violence from the getgo. But Hurt Me Plenty is the standard.

It's not like game mechanics change between Hurt Me Plenty & Ultra-Violence. If you can hop around on one while barely taking a scratch, then you can do the same on the other.
All enemies did at time is chip a bit of armor away. And I nearly always saved my ubers (quad, invuln, speed, berserk) thinking a larger wave of enemies would come which would require a well timed uber to beat.
I only used the BFG on the final boss. Hell, at one point I caught myself thinking, "what's the green spinning thing on the ground that I can never pick up? Oh, right... BFG ammo".
Same thing with the chainsaw. It feels like such a cop out weapon that I never used it. I'm sure that on Ultra-Violence/Nightmare/Ultra-Nightmare it's a requirement to use.

Either way, it's a beautiful game, with some nice weapons, but overall I'm not convinced it'll live past a single playthrough for most people. The choice to focus on achievements and trials feels wrong to me. The fact secrets on the map now grant permanent upgrades in the form of argent energy is also something that doesn't sit well with me. I was fine with the old style secrets which gave you weapons slightly earlier, health/armor/ammo or a uber.

Got it the other day and had read some reviews about it getting kind of boring until you get to the harder modes, so started on Ultra-Violence difficulty. I guess it's technically "harder" but it really seems to just be more enemies, and you have to plan/think about how to clear certain areas rather than just running through it.

And yeah agree on the secrets. I'm just getting through it the first time then will go back for secrets, but some friends I was playing with are definitely are type to get everything on the first run and probably not do another full run through

>I'm just getting through it the first time then will go back for secrets, but some friends I was playing with are definitely are type to get everything on the first run and probably not do another full run through

Yeah, I got 90% of the secrets on first run. I also started trying to do all challenges at first, but about halfway through I stopped bothering with that since it got really boring. I think in the end I cleared about 60% of the challenges and 80% of the trials.
I do think some of the trials will be significantly harder on higher difficulty.

Anyone see that Huniepop was 69% off?
Anyways, the game has been surprisingly fun.
I don't even like anime, so I haven't fapped to it, even after enabling the uncensored version. Trufax.

I personally am amused at listening to the various VA's fake orgasms when you bed the various girlz.

To be honest the old Bioshock games don't even look that bad on PC. I feel like this is just another one of those recent "remasters" that's only there to cash in on the lack of backwards compatibility on current gen consoles, by offering titles from less than a decade ago with nominally improved visuals and, probably the biggest actual improvement (which PC users obviously already had), 60fps/1080p. Not super hyped, though more 'shock is never a bad thing I guess, speaking of which...

The System Shock remaster/reboot, on the other hand, is looking very fuckin' neato. This is a game that really needed a remaster, considering how painfully aged the original control scheme and UI specifically both are. They've even thrown up a playable 15~ minute demo to coincide with their Kickstarter release.
