man I absolutely love shooting shit with a bow in this game. It's one thing getting headshots in a game where the bullets go right on your target reticle, when you actually have to adjust for distance and elevation and you still get five in a row it's so awesome

Just got Terraria and I haven't really played much to go very far.

mount&blade update:
Signed up as a merc with the Nords. I managed to very nearly get captured once (all my men died, and I ran away). However, after improving my equipment, recruiting and training more troops, I managed to utterly annihilate a force of Swadian troops that outnumbered me 108 to 58 with only 13 troops killed (and they were all poor-quality troops anyways). I personally killed at least a dozen Swadian archers myself. Signed on to another month's contract with the Nords. Hopefully this time they'll actually ask me to do something, all the battles I've gotten in have been completely on my own volition.

I bought the id games pack on Steam. It's on ale right now. So, 22 games for $30. GET IT NOW

executioneer Jul 2nd, 2011 06:02 AM

ehh i've already got all the GOOD games in that pack :(

Chojin Jul 2nd, 2011 07:23 AM

playing Omikron: the Nomad Soul on the dreamcast

it's an open-world cyberpunk game by a french company, so i already loved it before i bought it

Fathom Zero Jul 2nd, 2011 07:33 AM

It was made by David Cage. Eeeeeeew.

Yeah, I'd wanna play it.

Nick Jul 2nd, 2011 10:45 PM

I've been pretty much just playing TF2 right now. All these weapons and hats and crap. Why can't I hold it all?

Shyandquietguy Jul 3rd, 2011 01:39 AM

Playing more Terraria!

OxBlood Jul 4th, 2011 04:40 AM

Terraria is a nice little game, I think they put new stuff in since I last played it but I´m not that motivated.

I can´t really seem to progress much in Mount&Blade. I think I sided with the wrong guys and now the one Jarl that liked me is my enemy and I have to start over with some other guy again...all I want is to slaughter dudes and get a piece of land for it. A little caslte maybe. Can´t be that much to ask for...

executioneer Jul 4th, 2011 05:34 AM

I've got a castle and a little village now. Best thing that's happened so far is beating a 200+ strong army with 50 guys, now. Also, good gravy do I ever love that the enemies can rout now. I thought just winning against impossible odds was fun, but seeing them driven before me and hearing the lamentations of their women definitely is the best thing :conan

OxBlood Jul 4th, 2011 06:47 AM

I want a castle too! But I guess my non-noble heritage isn´t helping much...neither is me siding with whomever I want...meh, who cares, killing peasants is fun too.

Question: Is there any way of recruiting guys other than picking them up in the villages? Don´t these countries have soldiers or something? Can´t all be peasant-armies and mercenaries, right?

Fathom Zero Jul 4th, 2011 06:53 AM

Go into the taverns and talk to people. Occasionally, there'll be some unique person that'll join your party. Also, you can hire other sorts of mercenaries.

Chojin Jul 4th, 2011 07:45 AM

lol some shit just got real in omikron and this npc started making threats at me, so in the dialog options i was just like "dude i'm playing a video game, i don't care"

Spoilers!

I´ve seen the mercs but they´re expensive as shit...and given the chance that they´ll only survive one or two battles anyway...I´ll pass on them for now. At least I got some of my boys to survive long enough to promote them to knights (which is strange since I´m a commoner and commoners can´t command knights but whatever ;) )

It´s kinda hard finding a Count to cling to...I´d prefer to just TAKE land and castles but I can´t since I can only field 45 guys...Some kind of super-battlemage or maybe 10 Ogres would be really handy right now but noooo, we´re not living in a fantasy world. No Sir, you gotta go and recruit peasant-boys from the countryside and crawl in everybodies collective ass to get along in this world...at least I got me a nice Greatsword.


Huh, I just captured some Desert-noble...what should I do with him? IS there anything to do other than collect ransom?

recruiting from villages and getting mercs from taverns is it, sry

nope. all you can do is wait for someone to contact you

OxBlood Jul 4th, 2011 04:44 PM

Happened already. Measly 2500 Denars for a lord. Cheap bastards.

BUT: I got my first fief. Right in the middle of enemy territory. Great. Had to pause until tomorrow but somehow I doubt I´ll find it in good condition. Bah.

executioneer Jul 4th, 2011 05:02 PM

yeah, they usually start you with the shittiest fief :( it's income, i guess? plus if you build it up a bunch they'll start giving you better troops when you recruit (which, in original M&B at least, could be good or bad; sometimes they'd offer archers, which I DID NOT WANT)

Dr. Boogie Jul 4th, 2011 06:33 PM

Playing Terraria. The first 6 hours of that game were better than the entire 6 hours of DNF.

I tunneled about 1.5 kilometers underground and found a bunch of great shit. Then I went to explore the jungle and found a solid gold room with a gold treasure chest underground. I was so happy that I tore down that room and used the materials to make a solid gold cabin. I wish my bed could have been made of gold, too.


Willie, I just picked up M&B: With Fire and Sword off Steam. Is it everything from the previous installments plus more, because I still haven't had a chance to play Warband?

Fathom Zero Jul 4th, 2011 06:33 PM

I want dudes on horseback with swords or lances. The faster, the better. Fuck archers. All they do is miss and die.

Fathom Zero Jul 4th, 2011 11:41 PM



It's old, but one of my favorite moments in video games.

Chojin Jul 5th, 2011 03:10 AM

what is it with cyberpunk and demons

still playing omikron. the game has some really neat concepts and was developed by the same company that did indigo prophecy and heavy rain, yet actually plays like a video game unlike those two. the open world system is mad neat, but the game is just retro enough that it was made in that time period where fucking nothing is explained, and you can screw yourself out of being able to finish the game if you do certain things wrong early on (or so I've read). like i said the concepts are neat, like how if you die through pretty much any plot event, you can possess a nearby person and keep playing. after i was wanted by law, i tried to get a police robot to let me through a tunnel and he just looked at me and then turned on his flamethrower :lol then i got to possess a bald female mortician :orgasm

I keep having to go back to gamefaqs for it because everything you're ever told is a fantastical riddle that the game engine can't hope to convey without a healthy dose of imagination. it also doesn't help that nothing at all is labelled on your map, so every time i enter a new city i have to chart it out on paper to figure out where the fuck anything is. you can call a car to take you to important plot destinations, but not stores.

so it's a french 3d cyberpunk action/adventure game. it also has FPS segments and fighting game segments. i feel like i should be enjoying this more. it's probably the controls that bother me the most; it's like resident evil 1 in a GTA 3 gamespace.

LordSappington Jul 5th, 2011 03:21 AM

Got Killing Floor, and holy fuck this game is goddamn hard. Especially on maps where kiting is literally impossible, and God help you if you bought the wrong gun.
I love it.

someone told me it wasn't as good as warband, i haven't tried it

supposedly there's guns in it? dunno

Fathom Zero Jul 5th, 2011 04:09 AM

It's set in real Europe and there are gunz. So it's cool. I also picked it up. :)
