I use G+ every day, so does almost everyone I used to Twitter with. Because we can have actual, full conversations there instead of 140 character thoughtbytes. There are tons of people and tons of communities but it takes a little more effort to find them sometimes.

News Comments > Starpoint Gemini 2: Secrets of Aethera DLC Released

I just got SPG2 a month or so ago and I'm enjoying it. I haven't played a space game since... Elite on my Amiga so this is a good stepping in point for me. Good soundtrack too. It's not a Skyrim-style sandbox, more of a "enter a sector and maybe some missions will be procedurally generated" type. I don't have to dogfight like in Elite Dangerous. It's something I can relax to. I can fly a small ship or a large ship and I have a crew I can tell to handle the combat (Fire at Will) or board the enemy ship to capture it. Elite combat is pure WWII dogfighting in space. Which is fine but doesn't satisfy any "but I want to fly a capital ship" itch.
I never got into the trading aspects on Elite back in the day, and not really feeling it with Elite Dangerous so I'm actually fine that the trading in SPG2 isn't really fleshed out. Diff'rent strokes and all.
It's not a perfect game by any stretch but from a tiny studio who seems to communicate with the players without the arrogance and condescension I've seen from others lately, sure I'll support 'em.

News Comments > Ghost Recon Phantoms Launched

I like it, and haven't spent a dime on it. I can definitely see where it's "Pay2Win" though due to the way they've restructured the gear ranking, but ya know... I'm still in my default gear (except for a couple Rank 2 or 3 pieces I got from a reward box) and maybe it takes me two shots instead of one to kill someone. Whatever. It's a fun, tactical slower-paced game and while I've heard the "kiddie" horror stories I've never actually encountered any. Most of the players I end up teamed with are adults and pretty mature so I don't mind being on voice chat with strangers in this game. So far.

Agreed, I use OBS almost exclusively, it's very smooth and I can arrange a lot of custom areas on the stream.

For built-in Twitch, so far Company of Heroes 2 has been very nice, and Firefall is ok once I adjusted it to my ISP's upload bandwidth.

I know Origin isn't popular here, but it's built-in Twitch streaming has been flawless too, even when I manually add a non-Origin game.

I saw this linked at X360A and was happy that practically all the commenters came out in defense of Halo Wars. It was by far my favorite of the entire Halo franchise. Ensemble did a great job with a console RTS, even as streamlined as they made it.

News Comments > I Am Alive & Endwar PC Plans

Personally I'm enjoying the hell out of EndWar but that's because I no longer have the patience or attention for all the micromanaging and base-building stuff of straight-up RTS. I'd rather go for the Action RTS like the Ground Zeros or World in Conflicts. Or for the console, EndWar.
