  1. Another games thread from moi... Anyone else play this game? (watch this if you havent got a clue what im talking about) Myself and D1 are on there. I did think Resi 4 was a shoe in for my game of 2005. Now im not so sure. This thing is epic! edit: 19th October 2007 Just because im a nice guy, some info: If you are thinking of signing up, make a Horde character on Tarren Mill server and you will get some help from plenty of Villa Fans. World of Warcraft is a class based game, and what class you pick will have a massive impact on your overall experience. I found the best thing to do when deciding a class is to have a look at this link before you take the plunge. There are also lots of quests to do in World of Warcraft. If you get stuck on a quest, visit the mighty Wowhead.com People who play WoW and post on VT. Forum name and in game character name. Some people have more than one character. Tarren Mill Server (PvP) Horde Limpid = Limpid, Limped, Limpt The_Rev = Nayson, Eau (taking a break at the moment) ED = Evildan, Ewiddan, Lolmangle Designer1 = Siongest, Sionguest Risso = Rissok Trl = Trl, Renew, Handful Red_5 = Samisdead Irishjay = Rishj Juju = Samosa, Merkin, Vilajuju Craigyh_74 = Tarq, Tarqy Ill edit more of this later, adding more useful links and the names and servers of the anti social bastards who didnt pick Horde on Tarren Mill.

    Trials

    I remember originally playing Trials or Trials 2 on miniclip.com back in the day, obviously since then the series has come on leaps and bounds but the premise is still the same. Downloading Trials Fusion now, looks really good IMO. Always fun games to play, anybody else getting it?
  3. Hi guys After about 5 years I need a new gaming PC. At the moment I play League of Legends, CS:GO and PUBG. I am aware that the following build is overkill for these games but I plan on playing games that require a more powerful PC. I have little experience with computer hardware and would like to know your opinion on the following build: Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X (LGA 1151, Intel Z390, ATX) CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K (LGA 1151, 3.60GHz, Unlocked) CPU cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Advanced C1 (16.60cm) GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8GB (this is my current GPU. Bought it a few months ago) RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V (2x, 16GB, DDR4-3200, DIMM 288) Power: be quiet! Power Zone (850W) SSD: Crucial MX500 (1000GB, 2.5") (additionally I'll use a 1TB HDD from my current PC) Tower: be quiet! Dark Base 700 (Midi Tower, Insulated) Comments: I'm not upgrading my current PC because I could do with a second PC (for LANs). I don't want/need water cooling. It would be easy to upgrade if I change my mind. I know the GPU isn't up to par with the rest of the hardware. I plan on getting a new GPU in 1-2 years I picked a slightly cheaper motherboard (compared to the rest of the components) because the only difference I could find on the more expensive one was that it had more USB 3.0 and USB-C ports. Questions: Anything on the list that's not worth the money? Is the case big enough or do I need a big tower? Ideas for improvement? Other comments or suggestions? Thanks for your feedback! . . Edit: I posted unintentionally before I was finished Edit 2: Mods please feel free to move this to the tech section if you feel this is the wrong place to post. I don't know how to move it.
  4. Looks like it's going to be WW2 judging by the clip released in this tweet. Have to say I'm quite surprised by that. Thought they may have gone for Vietnam or a Modern setting since COD just did WW2. I found BF1 quite boring really, so not really feeling a WW2 game. Would rather a BF3 type setting.
  5. Apparently this is rather good. I only ever played the original, back in 2002, but might eventually have to jump in with this. Obviously not everyone's cup of tea but I'm intrigued with how they've mixed up the gameplay from the standard hack and slash fare.

    For Honor

    Anyone seen the trailer thingy for this yet?! Looks awesome!!
  7. Finally out tomorrow, the much delayed sequel the Xbox 360 gem has had a very long and troubled development, and the reaction? Shrug. The gameplay itself looks very very tired and while the graphics are technically impressive the art design is, imo, horrendously ugly. It looks like a generic Dreamcast game with the quality turned up to a million. It's simultaneously bland, garish, stark and dull. I guess if you really, really liked Crackdown a decade ago, this is for you. I really can't see it standing up to much else today. Oh and the multiplayer, made a different development team and with the destruction stuff they originally sold the game on added in, hasn't really been lauded much as far as I can see in quite some time. Still if you have Gamepass, it's not costing you much I guess.
  8. I know there used to be a thread, but it seems to have been pruned. Just re-installed this (using Wine) and I'm thinking about re-subscribing. Is anyone here still playing? Link in case someone hasn't heard of it before.
  9. Got 10/10 on Gamespot & IGN. Reviewing very highly across the board. I've never played any of the games, don't know what they're about, don't know if I'd like them, but after reading the reviews, it almost certainly seems like there would be a good game there. Anyone getting it?
  10. Release date of 4th November, 2 week beta access if pre purchased from authorised retailers. FM Touch is available as a standalone and also included with the full game. There is a loyalty reward for pre purchasing through Steam, up to 20% discount for owning all of FM13-16 or 5% for each one. I'm trying not to buy this year, but I know I'll cave at some point and end up smashing it for months. Min Specs OS: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 (64 or 32 bit) Processor: Intel Pentium 4 Intel Core AMD Athlon 2.2GHz+ Memory: 2 GB RAM Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 Intel GMA X3100 256MB VRAM DirectX: Version 9.0c Storage: 3 GB available space

    Shenmue

    He shall appear from a far eastern land across the sea, A young man who has yet to know his potential, This potential is a power that could either destroy him or realize his will, His courage shall determine his fate, The path he must traverse, fraught with adversity, I await whilst praying, For this destiny predetermined since ancient times, A pitch black night unfolds with the morning star as its only light, And thus the saga...begins... I don't mean to alarm anyone, but....Sega have re-trademarked the Shenmue name. Now of course this could just be a formality. It probably is, actually. However, it could also mean that a potential HD remake, or better yet, the announcement of Shenmue III, could be imminent. In this thread let's talk about why Shenmue is not merely the best video game of all time, but humanity's greatest work. With that in mind, I will utter those immortal words - "Who the hell do you think you're talking to? You fu'in' with me? Kiss off, twit!"
  12. Anyone picking up the new COD? I haven't played a COD for years, probably BLOPS1 was the last one I played. However, the new "Blackout" (Battle Royale) mode actually looks incredibly fun. All streamers seem to be loving it and i'm enjoying watching it too. The BETA for Blackout starts today on PC and Xbox for anyone who wants to give it a go. I've pre-ordered on Amazon for a code but will cancel the pre-order if it's shit.
  13. Even more exciting than Mass Effect 3 (IMO), the next Elder Scrolls is due out next November. I'm a huge fan of Bethesda games and this should be something pretty special. I may book the 11th November 2011 onwards off work now!
  14. + Bioware blog mentioning next ME Will be interesting to see what direction they head in with the series next. A game set in a time period prior to ME, during the First Contact Wars or Rachni Wars, perhaps? The assertion that the founders quit due to EA is curious, could the next games be co-op heavy (blergh!) ? It's all a very long way off yet though. Plus the new IP. They've done sci-fi, they've done Tolkein-esque fantasy, they've done licenesed stuff with Star Wars, they've done dungeon crawlers and an MMO. Plus some anceint chinese set RPG or something (Jade Empire). Where next? Next gen, probably. Maybe they could make an actual properly good Pirate game, which hasn't ever been done, has it...?
  15. Surely we are very close to some info or a trailer now? Strong rumours about it being set in WW1 and a release date of Q3 2016. If true wont the weaponry be limited? Anybody got any other info/rumours? This will be a release day purchase for me.

    FIFA18

    So anyone got the new FIFA? Have to say, it's very much improved! Nothing revolutionary has changed, but it feels like older FIFA's.. they've kinda brought the arcady-ness back to it which also brings back a lot of fun. I'm a big fan of it so far.

    H1Z1

    Anyone playing this? It's a Day Z kinda game, but it has it differences which makes it a lot of fun. Currently in early access and costs about £10? It got of to a rocky start with lots of hype and then the servers were mostly down for the first two days. There's still some issues with balancing things, but SOE are impressively releasing patches every other day or so. I've logged about 26 hours in the game. Lots of fun just strolling around and then there's the heart-racing action when you have good loot and end up getting attacked or you have to hide. I've played on my own. I try to be friendly to most I come across, but usually to no effect. I did meet a couple of nice people but most are absolute knobheads that just wants your loot and will (try to) kill you on sight or lure you into a situation where they can kill you. I had a funny one today with a fresh spawn that decided to attack me. I was going somewhere anyway so I just ran in that direction with him following me like a mad man 5 meters behind. I tried to talk to him and offer him stuff, but he replied only in French. After about 10-15 minutes my stamina was running out and I was approaching my campfire. I turned around and fired my bow... a sweet sweet head shot from about half a meters range. Dickhead! I hate these guys that spawns and immediatly go looking for some guy with a backpack to kill and loot. Playing as a lone wolf is super hard, so if anyone wants to team up I'd defiantly be up for that, even if you're a complete newb.
  18. After the mile wide and inch deep experience that was No Mans Sky, the next project that I am getting unreasonably excited about is Star Citizen. The ambition for this game is HUGE, and the ability of the comparatively small team to deliver against has to be a concern, however if they can pull it off the game looks like it could be a bit epic. Unlike No Mans Sky whilst there are procedural planets they are doing story driven stuff inside it which sounds more like how something like how Red Dead Redemption worked. It relies on multiplayer and there will be PVP, mining and a a bunch of ships with different flying styles and a bunch of vehicles to use when you land on a planet. I have a number of concerns with the scope being so huge, all the delays that have already been announced and how they are looking at monetising it (it looks very expensive as they have it at the moment) but if it is good as I hope then take my money.
  19. Ive not been a call of duty player in quite some time, since it went jet pack crazy. However it seems theyre giving ww2 another shout, anyone reckon itll be worth buying?
  20. Tldr; play this It's quite hard to describe this game. The majority of the gameplay is in the form of a 2d platformer, but it's definitely not a platformer. There are some light puzzles (at least that I've seen thus far), and lots of 'moral decision' type choices to make that affect outcomes of scenes and such. I don't know how much of a difference they make in real terms, if the game has multiple endings for example (at this point I'd rather not know! The mystery of everything so far is refreshing to say the least), but the game does alert you to missed opportunities. There's some collectable stuff as well. The tone is the most interesting aspect for me. In short, the concept of the story and world is you playing the role of Anne, an 'enforcer', and one of only two humans, apparently, that inhabit this realm. A realm which is the place where everything lost in our world is sent - but once they reach this place, they gain a voice, a mind, and are fully anthropomorphised. Upon arrival, the good stuff (fancy tables, for example) are given good jobs, and the not so good (an odd sock) are simply sent to the factory to work. It's also not clear at all at the start of the game why you're doing what you're doing, to the point that, well, you're almost certainly 'the bad guy'. This is all animated in a Ghibli-esque fashion, but to me, the animation is western in style, rather than overtly eastern. There's lots of grimey industrial imagery, and although I couldn't describe it as steampunk, there's that fantasy/gritty realism to it. It's important to point out that all of this is played out completely without humour, and is all taken very seriously. Without delving into the story too deeply, this is an adult story, with adult themes, and that in and of itself makes this an interesting game worth some time. When it's a story with this mix of style and originality, though, it really demands attention, I think. It's completely unlike anything I've played before. Weirdly the thing it reminds me of most is The Brave Little Toaster, for the simple fact that completely ordinary household objects suddenly have very specific personalities, and fears, and hopes, and agendas. There's something quite magic in that, a reason why to this day I still love the Toy Story movies - but in Forgotton Anne, there's something much, much darker going on than some Toys trying to get home to their owner. There's a little known anime series called Narutaru (Shadow Star) which has an incredibly twee opening. Some kids have these monster things that they can kinda control. It's a bit like pokemon. At first glance it seems all sweetness and light, but there's a growing uneasyness rumbling along, and quite suddenly, you're confronted by some utterly horrific content. There's not much like it. Sure, there are series like Higurashi which are twee and then wham, here's some gore. But that's it's usp. In Narutaru, that's not the case, you could shut your eyes and cover your ears and ignore the horrid stuff and carry on, but with an uneasiness that you're not fully comprehending. I have a similar feeling when playing Forgotton Anne, and it's very rare, in most mediums. Some authors are great at it, but I don't experience it often with movies or games. I think that's one of the biggest reasons this game has grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and refused to let go in a very short space of time. It's not perfect. The art looks nice from a distance, but when the screen zooms in on something it starts to look a bit shoddy,and it likes to do that frequently. The story may not interest some at all, and might just come off as a bit too weird for some. And none of the gameplay elements are anything you haven't seen before, or done better. The voice acting is great too, actually, as is the full orchestral score. I'm not familiar with the devs, but from what I can gather, they're a 15 person team based in Copenhagen. There are a few occasions when the low budget is apparent, but boy, what an achievement. I haven't played anything that's struck me as much as this since Life is Strange ep 1, what, 3 and a half years ago? Highly recommended.
  21. Anyone playing the Beta? Despite its flaws, I loved the first game (2015). It did not have a huge amount of content on launch but I really liked the casual arcade feel of the game. A lot of the early balance issues and grenade spam were fixed and I had a blast. Supremacy on Endor was probably the best map I've played in a multiplayer console shooter. The best thing in the beta is the space combat. I think it's good enough to carry the game and the closest we will get to a dogfighting multiplayer game on console. I didn't care much for the infantry fighting. There is a huge amount of grenade spam, little choice in weapons available and once defenders figure out that turrets are OP it will become a very frustrating experience. I also am experiencing frame rate drops during hectic action. The most egregious aspect is the new lootbox system. It's blatantly pay2win with some legendarys offering huge bonuses (40% extra base health on starfighters being the most obvious example) I suspect they will leave this in until month or two after launch then nerf the hell out of it. They did a similar thing with the preorder bonus (Han Solo's pistol) in the first game. This is the main reason I wont be buying at launch.
  22. Thought there was a thread on this, couldn't find it though. Looks interesting, space exploration is for me at least, still a pretty exciting prospect in a game. The concern of 'what you actually do', and why you actually do it, is something most gamers are going to have to be convinced of before the game comes out though, I think. There's an interesting interview with the dev's at E3 here which is worth a read, one of the most interesting points I picked out was this Curious. They also use games like Minecraft and Terraria as examples of games where players just get on with playing, and the concerns of why, and the backstory to where they are, isn't important. I remain unconvinced, but am quite eager to have a go myself all the same.
  23. Upcoming pirate themed multiplayer from Rare, on Windows and XBONE. Could be a return to form for them, after the Kinect stuff. Considering I'll probably never play it, unless it comes to PS4 (doubtful), I'm very curious about how it turns out. There's an insightful interview here which is worth a read, even if you're not interested in the concept of the game, then there's some insight in to the workings of the modern day Rare. I recall some discussion about a proper pirate game on here some time ago, and if anyone still has a hankering for one, well, I don't think you could do worse than anticipate this. In essence, you team up with 3 others and control a galleon. You'll have to do jobs, such as raise anchor, then have a look out, raise sails, steer, etc. but the suggestion is there isn't any hand holding. You need to communicate to get things done, and that goes for simply sailing the seas, to combat, to exploring islands for plunder and such. The linked intereview makes reference to a 'post No Man's Sky world' wherein the consumer is now more wary of dev's promises. Rare have a proven track record of course, so I'm hoping the myriad features 'promised' are indeed in the final game. There's also an interesting story about when Phil Spencer and some other MS bods played a very early version of the game at E3 (a video of which is not available to the public), in which they played the game in the opposite way Rare were hoping - basically the 4 players teamed up to get some treasure and get it back to the docks to sell, but on the route home, they dump one of their mates over the side of the ship so as to split the booty between less of them Rare hope most people will work together and only do battle with other ships... It's not procedurally generated, but the question has been asked of what you actually do in the game. At the moment, there doesn't seem to be much of an answer, although apparently there will be quests and a story line. They mention 'emergent gameplay' in the linked interview a few times, which the cynical side of me means you are expected to make up things as you go yourself...but at least the gameplay should be fun, at least in the short term. No release date yet, expected sometime next year.
  24. Touted for many years, begged for by fans for over a quarter of a century...has the time for a current gen Elite sequel come at last? Elite sequel Kickstarter goes live They want $2/£1.25m for what essentially appears to be, quite simply, a like for like reboot of Elite and Frontier but using modern tech ofc. The project page explains how, on a 16 bit computer, they were able to replicate a model of the Milky Way galaxy, including ~100,000,000,000 star systems, so imagine what would be possible on todays computers. It's a game from before my time, but is something I've heard so much about since I did start gaming that it almost feels like I have actually played the original, which I never did. The Kickstarter runs until Jan, and although it's not something I'm as excited about as the new Broken Sword (which was also Kickstarted recently), I may stick a little pledge in, just to see the final result. Which is a long way off, by the way, March 2014 they reckon. The kickstarter runs until early Jan '13. It's worth noting, though, that Notch's (of Minecraft fame) spacesim MMO '0x10c' may be out by the time this new Elite is ready. And with what must be almost unlimited funds, it makes you wonder if this Elite will be out-Elited by Notch's new game. Curiously, 0x10c will be a pay monthly game, but that does seem to be the case for Dangerous. I guess time will tell...no screens available for either game yet, and I doubt they will be for some time, either.
  25. Season 2 has started and there is a free trial this weekend for anyone interested. I would heartily recommend the game. With over 20 characters there are tons of ways to play and I think most people will find their niche. Those not accustomed to fps can play as healers or mobile tanks with Tesla cannons. There's not much you can't do!
