Re: The Game Thread

I want a Tower Defense game that plays exactly like King Arthur's Gold, except it's single player and you have plenty of time to set up traps and a lot of other such things. Like it would be fun if you could set up a pit trap to catch a bunch of attackers, then pour lava on them, watch them burn, drain it, then go in and pick up all the spiffy loot. :)

This might be possible with all the new contraptions in Fallout 4 but settlements are annoying. Next game I play I will probably give most of the settlements to the BoS. :p
Or just never talk to Preston. That might work.

Re: The Game Thread

Just played Gat Out of Hell because PS+ had it for free

Was fun. Wouldn't buy it, it only lasted around 8 hours, but fun. Good 'superhero' sandbox. You can either fly around or run around faster than a car. Some powers are more OP than others. The stomp, for instance, once properly upgraded, deals massive damage on a massive scale with a teeny tiny recharge. Same with the guns. The first of the Deadly Sins weapons I got, Gallows, built up a charge meter. When it reaches it, for a limited amount of time, it fires explosive rounds, blowing everything the fuck up. Nothing could stop me when I used that.

There's still some collectibles I could search for, some challenges I could finish but I'm not gonna.

For what it is, I give it an 8/10

Re: The Game Thread

I was surprised that there was a VtM bundle since there's not been many video game releases. How many would that be? 1? 2? Maybe 3 games total? I remember trying to play the 1st one many years ago but I just couldn't get into it. Too much character juggling and terrible perspective for squad combat.

After clicking the link I realized it was one of their book bundles. Never been much of a fan of reading on the screen. I guess it's more for the younger generation since they have their eyes glued to their mobile devices almost 24/7 anyway. I took a look at the example page from the first book, just out of curiosity. Are these really supposed to be RPG books? I just checked a couple more samples and it's more like novels. Maybe the books have stats and stuff on the other pages, but if that's the case then the preview pages are rather unfortunate examples.

I guess these are meant for LARPing. "Lightning Bolt!" "Lightning Bolt!" "Lightning Bolt!"
Oh. Wrong LARP. Err... "I bite you!" ?

Guess I expected something more like this:

But then again, there's nothing like TSR, is there?

Re: The Game Thread

The setting matters more than the mechanics, and if they are the LARP series (vtm has standard tabletop as well), then the rules are meant to be compact and fast, so you can make resolutions as quickly as possible and get back to the actual fun of the game. So yeah, the books have lots of fluff in them.

The basic idea is that you connect to a Linux server via SSH and try to figure out how to get the password. Educational as well as surprisingly addicting. Oh, and there are other, more advanced games on the site as well.

If you're using Windows, you'll probably have to download an SSH client like PuTTY first, if you're using Linux or other Unix-like operating system, the functionality should be already included.

Been replaying star wars knights of the old republic after I tried watching a Star wars KOTOR lets play by the two best friends from the switcher.They have been always bad at games so I only use it as background noise for their commentary but this time they really triggered my autism.
