News Comments > Tabletop Simulator & Superfight DLC Released
4. Re: Tabletop Simulator & Superfight DLC Released Jun 7, 2015, 11:10 MacLeod
 
I just watched a 20 minute tutorial video for the Tabletop Simulator software, and I have to admit, it is tempting to buy to get a game running with some old friends that are no longer local.

I will say, this type of software is probably the one of the few cases I wish there was paid addons in the workshop. Going through them, there are a lot of games already built... Warhammer Quest, Warhammer 40k, Settlers of Catan, Arkham Horror to name a few... but I can't help but feeling that downloading them would be stealing from the company who made the game, since people are literally scanning their work and reproducing it to play without purchasing the game. If there were paid addons, the companies could actually sell their games for this and have official support. I can see, especially now that it's "officially" released a lot of game companies getting these addons pulled. Especially Games Workshop, who have always been sharks when it comes to attacking anything that even seemingly threatens their trademarks.

It seemed pretty obvious to me where they switched from standard gameplay animations to something specifically orchestrated for this video (or maybe an in-game cutscene, whatever). The dead giveaway is the guy backing up against the rock.

Though that did make me think that creating an animation if the walking backwards key is pressed and you come up against a solid object would be cool. hehe.

I'd back a Kojima / Del Toro survival horror on KS.


I wouldn't.

Sorry... but since the first Solid, with the exception of three, which I've heard was good, but I still couldn't get into, the Metal Gear games have been long-winded crap. Crap I've tried to love, but haven't been able to. Kojima has been coasting by on his name for a LONG time now.

As for Del Toro. I think he's probably the most over rated hack director in a long time. Other than the Hellboy films, which were okay as mindless fun movies, I don't think I've actually enjoyed any of his movies. Even his most critically acclaimed movies, The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth left me with a "Meh" feeling when done. Not to mention the guy can't settle on a single project ever. If you ever look at his production slate, the guy has like 30 projects going at once, and 99% of them don't ever get off the ground. So I definitely wouldn't be giving him money to do something before it was completed.

Yeah. 64-bit KSP was not updated to 1.0. It never worked properly in Windows, particularly when modded. A fresh install of 1.0 will only have a 32-bit executable. The 64-bit Windows version of the engine they use (Unity) is notoriously shit and they can't do anything about it until Unity releases a version that isn't ass.

But the 32-bit version is absolutely fine unless you're installing tons of huge texture packs.

Ah. Good to know. Maybe I'll go back to it at some point. But the second tutorial level not working correctly still left a bad taste in my mouth.

purchased Kerbal the other day... went through the first tutorial okay. Got to the second tutorial (launch), and when I got to orbit, it told me to bring my map up to plot a path or some such. My map is completely blank except for starfield. Apparently this is a known bug. Then I read, while looking that up, that if I wanted to play the campaign, I'd have to run the 32-bit version, because it doesn't work in the 64-bit executable. Quit the game and never went back.

Anet does a good job keeping out cheaters, botters and gold sellers. You see someone selling gold in chat and report it, an Arenanet employee is there within seconds to ban their account. They've all but removed gold spam from the game.

LOLOLOLOL

Yea... Okay.

That's why I've gotten spammed for about 2 hours by the same gold seller. Or why people have been reporting the same cheaters in WvW for months without them getting banned. Come on man...

Man... It's weird. I played the crap out of The New Order, but yet, I'm having trouble with this one on the first section after you escape capture and you have to get past all the super soldiers connected to the power lines.

that would ruffle feathers for sure, they don't even use the swastika in these games anymore.

That's actually inaccurate. Unless you're in a region (like Germany) that prevents it, New Order did have Nazi references along with Swastikas on their armbands, vehicles and buildings.

Oddly, the character model viewer in the game however only showed the geolocked censored version of the models.

Honestly don't really see this one working.

Not to mention only one USB port makes it worthless if you can't have both your mouse and keyboard on the anti-cheat pipeline.

And built on open-source platform to make it easier to figure out how to circumvent.

Still not huge on tanks in a Batman game, though :p

Yeah, I'm not wild about that, either. Hopefully it's a smaller part.


IIRC there's a tank in the trailer for the new Batman v Superman movie?

I would expect that, as they're borrowing from TDKR...


Rubber bullets... Honest.

While I know it really doesn't have anything to do with him, I blame Guillermo Del Toro. That guy says he's doing so many projects all the time, and 95% of them don't get made. :p

Yep... if anyone thought this was a good idea that's "good for the mod community", they can piss off when crap like this happens within a day of it going live:

In Game Pop-ups! Yay!

Also, not being able to even view the discussions on a paid mod unless you buy it?? Fuck you Gabe, fuck you Steam.

I like the part where Chesko says that he specifically checked with Valve, and they said as long as the mod was separate and free, it could be used. Not saying that his comment is necessarily true, but if it is... wow... basically saying "yea, go ahead and steal someone elses work."

My favorite part of this whole Sony hack thing is watching the hypocrisy of all the media outlets who ranted and raved about how the celebrity pictures hack was an invasion of those people's privacy and such, but then post every juicy tidbit of tawdry information from the private, internal corporate email accounts.

(and for the record, I actually thought both leak details shouldn't have been revealed, as they were private communications.)

I actually really loved the first game. I was sad when it underperformed and clearly wasn't going to get a sequel. Its ambiance and story were top notch.

The evolution of the pages changing reality into a puzzle mechanic is a really good idea that I would have enjoyed.

That's because people are fucking stupid.
They should have made the top end raid gear at 60 on par with the normal raid gear at 70.

Yes, they should have let you go straight into raiding for top gear 70 loot because you have 60 loot. Thereby skipping everything else they added into the game. Then you'd be complaining that there was nothing to do even quicker. This is the perfect example of the "give me my stuff now" mentality that infects modern gaming. Your top gear was top for level 60. It made you significantly better at dealing with content in that level range and raiding those end bosses. Once you passed that you had to actually gear up in the new levels like everyone else to be ready to raid for level 70.

This comes about five days after a massive layoff occurred at NCsoft's Austin location. Almost all of it in game support for, you guessed it, Wildstar and, to a smaller extent, Guild Wars 2.

I actually don't think it affected GW2 at all, as ArenaNet has their own customer support I believe.

Because according to the hard science of Groundhog Day, the "long" version of winter is six more weeks, so it still should have been spring two weeks ago.

Well, it's not his fault that our feeble human minds are not advanced enough to interpret his full prediction and we just use some generic 6 weeks. :p

(And the prediction was for 6 more weeks of winter... which there were. There just happen to be another 2 after the 6. Should have had him look at his shadow again. lol)
