Without Beckham, we are hurtin' for certain!

Oh Blue, what are we going to do the rest of this year? I'm a Devils fan when it comes to the NHL, so hopefully they'll be good enough to keep me entertained this winter...

Why is this considered a roguelike? Looks like a pretty standard FPS, albeit with retro graphics...

For $3.99US on GoG, I'll give it a try. The graphics don't look half bad for a 12 year old game!

This looks just super!! I am such a huge fan of cartoons of this style and this game brings back some great childhood memories of staying home from school sick one day and being able to watch all the daytime cartoons I always missed while in school! Just some serious classic cartoons animated in this style!!

The game play will really be secondary to me but I will definitely buy this game and enjoy the hell out of it!

I read this title totally differently. My LawBreakers-Free Weekend is underway, meaning that I won't so much as see the game for the entire weekend...

HAHAHA!!!

Nice one! I see what you did there!

Of all the "Launcher" type clients I've had to put up with, Battle.net is the LEAST annoying, IMHO. I am using it to play D3 and OW on a laptop with integrated graphics (granted it is almost brand new laptop and has Intel's latest/greatest graphics solution) and I see no real performance hit.

I also LOVE some of the extra features the client has, like Live Streaming directly to Facebook Live! All I had to do was link my Facebook account and press F1 from inside any game launched from the client and it uses my webcam to show me in the lower left corner as it posts my game play in real time to FB Live! There is a noticeable performance hit when streaming but really how much can I ask of a laptop?!?!?

I have ZERO problems with Battle.net and since Blizzard makes like 80% of all the games I love, I use it every day.

WOW!! This looks like so much fun!! I haven't thought about Twisted Metal is a VERY long time but we had a blast playing that back in the day! I love the retro vibe this has going on!

Love the art style of the cars but they are so cartoony (great pun material there!) that they look out of place against the more realistic backgrounds and levels...

Even so, I'll totally check this out when I can. Could have a new favorite group game night title to sink our teeth into!!!

This new title is much better. It much more completely and accurately describes the content of the game.

Can't tell if smart ass or just really in to this game...

Heh. Of course I'm taking the piss.

Love your signature btw! I was VERY late to the Reaper of Souls expansion, just got it about a month ago and it has brought me back to D3 in a big way! Once I get in deep with a Crusader and the new Act and what not, I'm going to pick up the Necro pack. In D2 Necro was my absolute favorite class and while I know in D3 he's not the same, I like everything I've seen about the new Necro!

Also, "Taking the piss" is a kick ass way to put it! I love you Brits!

Way too much micro management for my tastes... I haven't played an RTS since Red Alert maybe? Warcraft 3? Been so long I can't remember lol!! But in any RTS I hated the micro management aspects so much!!

This looks good and it looks DEEP but I can't say I'm excited for it... Sorry Devs, you're doing a good job though!

Hey guys, Lawbreakers is going to gain players any day now.
Same goes for Quake Champions
I returned PUBG after 2 hours since it felt too random for me. In Quake Champions I know that I suck when I get fragged


You need more than 2 hours in this game. It's not as random as it seems. Did you play Arma/Operaption Flashpoint? Same techniques apply. You can mitigate risks. Use ridges, hedgerows to keep a low profile. Avoid buildings unless fairly certain they are clear. Watch the circle, don't ever let yourself be forced to move. Be patient.

Don't open fire unless you can complete the kill or want enemy to go to ground while you make a move. I suck at this as well but you buildup a toolset of good practices that will get you to top 10 no worries, and eventually a win.

Also start each round spicy, land where others land and try and get into some early fights (A 2 barreled shotty and 10 rounds is enough to ruin 3-4 peoples game). It's good practice and warm up and will help you feel like you don't need to break cover unnecessary later on. You start losing most but will end up winning most very quickly, which gets you a good headstart. Early game is best time for fights as you have a lot of time before circle becomes an issue. Later on you want assassinations, not gun-battles.

This is just me though, I'm no pro, and rarely win fights when scopes are involved, but this style of play gets me long, rewarding games with a handful of kills so I don't feel like I wasted 30 minutes hiding only to give someone else a win.

Also there is 100 players. Until you've lost 101 games in a row no need to feel too bad.

Very well put sir! I love this game more than almost any other FPS I've played in the past 10 years! I like the sniping and love the fact that you can actually hide out to snipe people. Ghillie Suits (spelling?) are actually useful in this game! You can lay down in the middle of field and be almost impossible to spot lol!

I like 2 man teams the best, one sniper and one spotter/cover fire. Setup shop in a high spot, a good roof top is perfect until circle becomes an issue and once it does, just relocate and setup again. A good sniper always relocates! Have your teammate cover your ass and you'll be picking people off in no time! If you do it well, they won't even know where the shots are coming from!

I've had decent luck getting matched up randomly. As Numinar said, they enforce rules prety strictly and bans are no fun so people are generally decent, at least as far as the interwebs is concerned!

you might wanna go somewhere further west. there's a chance this thing just rips up the entire eastern seaboard.

Noticing that now. The storm took a slight turn to the north earlier than expected. Going to head inland at some point in the near future!

I live in South West Florida and we are in the center of the "cone"! Pretty much, whichever model this storm follows I am SOL. So, tomorrow, we are packing up the 2 dogs and whatever clothes and whatnot we can, and hitting the road. We have family in New Jersey so I think we will shoot for there. I'd rather drive more than try to find a hotel/motel room for 2 adults, 1 kid, and 2 80+lbs dogs!

Wish us luck! I'm hoping by leaving a few days early we can avoid any major traffic issues getting out of this god forsaken state!

Even though these types of things are frustrating (esp. when it's compounded being more than one pc of HW) and console players point to as an issue like this as a big negative to gaming on a pc. I believe there is a real hidden benefit, it pays to know how to fix things like this.

I routinely point parent/kids to get their kids on PC's for gaming. I tell them, if your kid is going to play it should be on a PC, they are getting good experience using that pc, they will learn many things outside of direct gaming, where on a console, they learn nothing. These skills will help in their professional life later on.

I agree completely!! When I bought my first real PC, I knew almost nothing about computers. I had one good friend who was a computer nerd (I use "nerd" as a compliment) and when I would call him for tech support he never fixed anything for me. Instead, he showed me how to trouble shoot the problem and use the internet to find a solution. This is the whole "give a man a fish/teach a man to fish" thing.

Just using a computer daily for the past 14 years I have learned so much about hardware, software, and networking that I easily passed the A+/Net+ certification tests and got a good job working at the "Help Desk" of a local company as a "Support Technician". The company paid for me to receive further education in the field and I really owe my whole adult life situation to buying that first PC in 1999.

If I had just bought a PlayStation or whatever back then, I don't know where I would be! I will gladly suffer the occasional glitch, crash, BSoD, etc for the wealth of knowledge I gain!

6. Re: FIFA 14 Demo Sep 10, 2013, 19:45 LaxerFL
 
I love sports games and I am an avid PC gamer but I always go to a console for my sports fix.

I think of PC gaming as single player or online multiplayer and consoles as single location multiplayer. I think that way mainly because of how I've always setup my PCs. On a desk with one chair, one keyboard, one mouse, one controller and my PC monitors have always been smaller then my main TVs. It just isn't feasible to game on my PC with more then one person.

The console, on the other hand, is always in my living room with a big couch and plenty of seating and controllers and a giant TV to play on. A console has always been a social gaming setup for me.

Win8 64 and a 3 gig graphics card??? I understand it's "recommended" but still...

Damn...


Are you saying "damn" because you think the requirements are high? Any gaming rig built in the last 8 months should exceed those reqs. Aside from Windows 8 which is just a shit OS and they will have to pry Win7 from my cold dead hands, my 1 year old rig beats all those recommended specs.

The idiot expresses regret that he had to stop making money off rape jokes, and that makes people "entitled brats"?

Woosh!

It wasn't a rape joke. It was an MMO joke. People are entirely too sensitive now-a-days and it is aggravating.

If people don't like something why can't they just not use the product/visit the webpage/listen to the song/watch the video/read the book/etc. etc. etc.

They made a Battleship movie? Huh! I must of missed that one. Did it go straight to DVD? ;-)
