    Titanfall 2

    Played it. Single player was entertaining. Multiplayer is absolute cancer though. Pretty much everything good from the first game is gone.
  2. Reminder to everyone interested in. Using Rainbow Six Siege, or if you bought the base game without the season pass. December 1st, which is this coming thursday, the season pass will no longer be for sale. That means you won't be able to instantly unlock the 8 year one DLC operators. You'll need to either grind out 25,000 renown in game for each of them, or pay 600 R6 credits for each of them. Personally, I recommend getting it. It will take a long time to grind 200k renown, on top of the original operators. Plus, there is another year's worth of DLC forthcoming, which means probably more operators to unlock. If you're going to be playing this game and want to get the best experience without the tedium, get the season pass before Thursday.
  3. I don't play TF2, but Ashokan Farewell was a nice touch.

    Games that haven't aged well.

    Crysis also falls into this category. You need to download a special third party executable in order to make it run. This is aside from the fact whoever decided that the sprint meter and the suit energy meter needed to be the same thing needs to be knee-capped.

    FEAR. I'm sure 11 years ago that lighting was amazing, but the game is still abandoned office simulator 2005.

    Aaaaand now it can't be unseen. I wasn't planning on sleeping tonight anyways.

    Opinions on VR

    It'll be a novelty until someone actually makes a legitimate game that uses VR. Right now all we have are tech demos. We're a ways off from that though.

    PAYDAY 2 - The John Cleese Edition

    Anarchist ICTV doesn't work just because you cant get your armor back fast enough. Suit works better just because you're constantly getting little bits of armor, and if you have bullseye ace (or whatever skill give you armor for headshots) you can get most of your armor back from a single kill. But on the whole it's stupid and I'll stick to DW for a little bit.

    Oh you have an RPG? That's cute. I have 18000 health.

    PAYDAY 2 - The John Cleese Edition

    Also, don't be surprised if every OD lobby (or at least every other lobby) has a cheater.

    PAYDAY 2 - The John Cleese Edition

    So that new difficulty is...difficult. After a few attempts I have learned that... ICTV Anarchist is not OP like it is on DW HE Shotgun shells do work You want to stack as many damage bonuses as you can Bulldozers are the new cloakers There is no such thing as too many med bags, or ammo bags. However much ammo you think you have, it wont be enough Everyone who thought there was a skill gap between OVK and DW is going to get a new perspective on things. That power creep we've been getting the past year or so is gone. Also if that new weapon we get is not the ACR, someone is going to get hurt reeeeeal bad.

    Cancelled games you wished happened

    I doubt Tom Clancy of all people, dead or alive, would've allowed his name to be attached to such a project.

    Cancelled games you wished happened

    Patriots turned into Rainbow Six: Siege. If you play Terrorist Hunt the terrorists are all American. Situations is the same way.

    Cancelled games you wished happened

    Before anyone says Prey 2, that game is being made. It's being made by Arkane (the Dishonored people) I believe, and It's being called Prey because making a different game with the same name as a game made 10+ years ago is what all the cool kids are doing these days.

    Titanfall 2 thoughts?

    R6 Siege Ranked

    I'm kinda doing this on a whim, but sometimes, that's how you have the most fun. I've been looking to diversify a bit from Dirty Bomb and Payday, so I gave Rainbow Six Siege another shot, and I was very quickly reminded that it is not as easy without communication. I'm just throwing this out there to see if anyone bites. If anyone's interested in partying up for R6, I'd be down. It doesn't have to be ranked, but it's always an option. Whatever everyone wants to do.

    Payday 2 builds This I like to call Twilight Sparkle, because it's overpowered beyond belief. All skill points have gone into either boosting damage or increasing armor. health is irrelevant, since anarchist all but guarantees you will not take damage. As I said before, Overkill Ace gives a huge damage boost, so long as you are consistently getting shotgun kills. This, on top of Berserker and Underdog means that you can bring down any cop in just a few shots, and when the damage boost is high enough you can one shot skulldozers to the body. Fully Loaded ace allows you to not worry about ammo. No ammo worries, no health worries, combine the two and you get no worries. Now for the fun build. I've always had a penchant for focusing on melee in FPSs (an admittedly outdated exhibit A, so it's only natural for me to try and continue the tradition in payday. I finally got the Hotline Miami 2 content, which allows me to take full advantage of the Sociopath perk decks health regeneration. To inform, Sociopath gives back 10% health for melee kills. It also gives back armor and causes panic, but those aren't really important. What is important is boosting that melee damage to make getting health back as easy as possible. The boosts active here are Overkill Ace, Low Blow Ace, Unseen Strike Ace, Pumping Iron Ace, and Bloodthirst basic. In respective order, 75% increase to damage after a shotgun kill, maximum 30% critical hit chance, 35% critical hit chance for not taking damage for 4 seconds, flat 50% boost to melee damage, maximum 300% melee damage boost after successive ranged kills. A crit is headshot damage, and as an example a tan SWAT has a 2x headshot multiplier, which is comparatively low. Still, if you land a crit, which you are likely to if your concealment is 25 or lower, you will get an 850% damage increase! That's best case scenario, if you use a high damage weapon like the Katana, you don't even need all the boosts active at once to one shot most cops on DW. To compensate for the lack of armor you will have when going for concealment, low blow gives a little bit of dodge, although you will be going for a lot of melee kills to recover the health you will inevitably lose. The Silent Killer skills will help compensate for having no other gun related skills aside from overkill, and make the high concealment weapons viable. Despite me labeling this a "melee build", you will still be going for gun kills to boost bloodthirst. So there, an OP build for everyone and a fun build for people who like breaking the meta.

    Payday 2 builds

    Frenzy berserker is good, but add on overkill and it's even better. When you get DW revive health, you'll be able to one shot bulldozers with the Barrett once the Overkill Ace bonus is activated. I'm at work posting this, but once I'm back I'll post my exact setup for it, as well as a melee crit build using sociopath. We all know what the best build is, but this is just fun.

    PAYDAY 2 - Rise from the Ashes Edition

    Now to just wait for a sale so I can buy all the not stupid DLC I boycotted.
  21. It takes all kinds of people to make up this world. You can get a glimpse of exactly how diverse we are by jumping into pubs and looking at names. Obi-wan Come-Blow-me koalahkbar DJ Buttstuff Canadalism Add to the list.

    Nation States

    Prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, movie references are legally admissible in court, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Queendom of Tacosia's national animal is the Taco, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests. Huzzah! The taco is back from the brink of extinction!
