Most of you guys have been gamers for a good long time, right? My first post here on Bluesnews was back in 2003 and I know I've seen a lot of you around all these years.

I'll be the first to say Active Shooter is in poor taste (and as such, do understand why it got removed), but as gamers, do any of you seriously believe playing a game where you shoot kids could possibly translate to you even entertaining the notion of actually doing it in the real world?

No, of course not. You've gotta have it in you.

Anybody who buys that is going to be under government surveillance.

As opposed to the owning of real weapons.

You remind me of this routine from George Carlin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ssYezFw_Qs

RIP TB.

His comments regarding things like FOV and FPS in games prove he knew was he was talking about.

You will be missed mate.

Why they didn't have a computer game ready to go on that movie's release I'll never know. They'd have probably made another billion.

Fortnite? I don't want to play fucking Fortnite. Sigh. If only Marvel Heroes was still up and running.

Yeah, CoH was tons better. Still amazes me how few (good) superhero games there are/have ever been for video games. I'd love to see a new CoH.

I'd be all-in for that!

Me too (of course) but then, eve of Infinity War and all that, hell I'd be up for damn near anything.

It's probably just nostalgia talking but right now, if I could choose, I'd rather play City of Heroes. Not that I didn't try going back to Champions just recently, but it was all a little... meh.

I liked it enough all those years ago, but for me, it's not aged particularly well.

Hated the first one, and that's coming from someone who absolutely loved Jam and Hangtime back in the day. They keep trying to reinvent the damn wheel all the time.

Be nice if they could get Jordan (and Barkley) too. Finally.

An assault rifle is fully automatic a machine gun.

Actually, semi-automatic firearms with detachable magazines also meet that 'assault' criteria.

Sorry.

Jim Jefferies has it right. The only honest argument for having guns is "fuck off, I like guns".

Don't want to be honest? That's fine. Maybe just exit stage left, then, and let the adults talk.

maintaining the narrative that it's the gun that is the problem, and not thinking about why the person pulls the trigger?

Oh, I'm well aware that, if everyone behaved, guns aplenty wouldn't be a problem.

I'm just pretty sure a species like humanity couldn't ever be capable of the 'everyone behaving' side of that equation. After all, if it were, what need would there even be for them?

Asmodai wrote on Oct 3, 2017, 06:53:
Take away the gun, someone will use a truck, or a knife, or fire. You'll never fix all the problems, people will still go nuts. But if you focus on taking away the reasons for them to snap..?

Could you (take away the reasons for them to snap)? Could we?

Let's say I'm the victim of a home invasion late tonight. And it's certainly possible because, let's be honest, we're an aggressive, impulsive ape that just thinks it's very smart because we invented cars and the helicopter. Now, it'll probably suck either way, but if they've shown up with anything but a gun, I might just consider the chance of my wife and I making it out alive that much greater.

Linking massacres in Australia does little to dissuade the notion that humans and weapons that can kill very easily don't mix.

It happened in Australia, it can happen here.

I'd like to believe that was true but I've lived in Australia for almost 30 years of my 43 years of existence and I've never met anyone who (inanely) equated freedom with the right to bear arms.

Many, many more will die.

Granted, but there are (by last rough census) 350 million firearms in circulation in the US. If we stop selling guns tomorrow, bad guys will be able to buy whatever they want off that same Tom, Dick and Harry for the next 150 years.

Yeah, you've quite the sticky situation over there as a consequence, and unfortunately, it's political suicide for anyone who tries to take it on.

I don't envy you that one.

There's literally no way to prevent this.

Thought occurs not selling automatic firearms to every Tom, Dick and Harry that wants to buy one might be a pretty fucking good place to start.

Fuck that, backing in a single takes me enough time now as it is. But a double?

I like getting the extra experience from actually parking the trailer, but ten minutes with a double and I can see me choosing the auto-park option.

I had a Rift DK2, and I got bored after 2 weeks, my Vive I just keep coming back to, some games are a great workout too.

Each to their own, but it's almost freaky how my experience contrasts so significantly to this one.

I spent hours with my DK2 on my head playing the likes of ETS2, Assetto Corsa and Elite Dangerous. Many, many hours. I couldn't get enough of the damn thing.

Then I got a Vive, and after the initial euphoria wore off, I hardly touched the thing. It's been gathering dust ever since. I'd do a local trade for a Rift in comparable quality in a heartbeat, even without the Touch controllers.

Roomscale is great, except for the fact that... it's not. Every other experience is a wave shooter, it's like people don't know what to do with the damn thing. Don't get me wrong, the hardware is very compelling, but either it doesn't translate well to game experiences or developers are having a hard time thinking up truly imaginative ways to use it.

The hours that Steam says I've played games says it all. Elite Dangerous tops the list at 346 hours, then ETS2 at 120 and Assetto Corsa at 72. But the Vive games? Most I've done is 3 hours playing The Lab (mainly because of Longbow). Everything else is at 2 hours or less.

Kinda sums it up for me really.

The things I'm getting:

Empyrion. I've known for a while I would be getting it, $10 sold.

Me too, just this morning before leaving for work. People who like it really rave about it.

I also picked up Subnautica for $10, too. I've been watching too much of Kage 848 of late playing that one, and I like what I see. Probably going to scare the bejeesus out of me.

Then there's Thumper for VR madness, if just because it's getting rave reviews (enough to end up on the front page when I sort VR games on Steam by user reviews).
