  QuakeCon started today, anypony here in attendance? A series of intense Quake Live matches took place already with some killer upsets and some ugly domination (Somepony under the name evil I heard whipped a guy 20 to 1 or something like that. Or the other way around).

Also Doom 4, as seen in the video embed.

>As it is, once the power of Doom’s graphics has worn off (they’re amazing, so give that at least a week or two), you’lI be longing for something new in this game.
Oh my god that is hilarious.

Cue 20 years later, and Doom is still very active. I think it's the first truly timeless game.

It would be tragic if the new Doom game doesn't have modding support. Doom is the classic example of a game whose relevance has been sustained for years by its extensive modding community, and you'd think Bethesda of all companies would understand the value of that.

I also hope that it goes open source eventually, though that strikes me as doubtful now that Carmack is gone.

Kevin Cloud might still be a proponent, although with Carmack gone, yah chances are slim. Despite the fact that Cloud (I'm pretty sure) has been with the company much longer than Willits, he unfortunatly doesn't hold a lot of wait, I do not think.

Been meaning to make this thread for a while, since getting the trilogy on Steam sale a while back.

Anybody here play Wargame?

Been slowly trying to improve again and I think I'm finally starting to get the hang of it.

I'm starting to get into AirLand Battle, but there are a lot more units and nations than in EE. It's a little overwhelming trying to understand how they all work. Somehow I've managed though, but making a deck is still beyond me.

I know the problem, often it's various wireless thingies interfering with eachother, replace one of the wireless things with a wired variety and it should be a lot better.
(i know it shouldn't happen, and perhaps it's not the exact reason it goes wrong, however limiting yourself to just one wireless tool has often proven to be a solution for most i know)

i apparently solve it... at least at the moment.

i changed the port, instead of putting it behind (near to the wireless card. i put the receptor in the fron of the computer.

im not sure if the port is faster or it have less inteference, but it works now.

Fair enough, it's often interference it seems, and there's various ways to solve it.

I'm looking for more people to play against in TE, seeing as how there aren't many people that frequent the game, or Telepone.

So, if you wanna try it, you should totally do it. What was once dead has been revived. There's even an update soon that should be adding in more characters other than the original six; Octavia, Dərpy, Chrysalis, and one other that I can't remember.

I don't think we have one of these.
Even if this is the /g/raveyard, there must be some people who visit and also game on their mobile devices. Because these days, mobile gaming is excellent. Lots of great titles, often in full console quality - and we've almost entirely outgrown the autorunner phase. Good on us.

What device do you use?
What games do you often play?
What have you recently played and fallen in love with?

Let's not misinterpret the fact that there are a large number of mobile OS video games to mean that mobile OS video games comprise a major percentage of the entire video game industry. While they do contribute a considerable amount of revenue, much of it comes primarily from a few incredibly popular games that absolutely everypony has. On top of which, the sheer number of mobile OS games, while not exactly insignificant, is still not a very large percentage of the entire video game market.

Too much freemium.

I wouldn't mind a 15 minute timekiller but all I can think about whenever my finger is hovering over the install button is "oh god what is this shitty free thing going to do to my phone to make revenue."

Most things more serious I'd rather play on my big computer. How's Sims 3 on Android?

  When I'm at home, if I'm going to play games, I'd rather play them on a nice big screen using a mouse and keyboard or a gamepad. When I'm not at home, I'm usually more interested in preserving my phone's battery throughout the day than sitting around playing Carmageddon in public.

That said, there's this old iOS game called The Quest that I'd like to play if it was available for Android

My phone is a Moto G, which at the time was a pretty good mid-range phone for the price. Good-enough performance, decent battery life, runs mostly-stock Android and gets updates frequently. Not sure if I'd still recommend it since I haven't really kept up with whatever devices have come out since then.

I've been playing a lot of Portal 2 of late since it's only properly working for me now and been playing community maps. (Look up "Laser Labyrinth" for my first ever map!)

I wonder if it's possible to make a campaign of maps than just play them each seperately? I have a few ideas for Portal stories myself, though even with Hammer, I dunno if I can make them.

Especially be cool if I can have an evil Atlas like robot armed with a Pulse Cannon that chases you down in certain areas.

I already have an idea for a campaign story called "P0RTAL". You play as one of the many humans found by P-Body and Atlas in that big vault. Since GlaDOS is testing many humans she has made various cores to make test chambers for her and the core who made your test chambers is a bit enthusiastic as an artist. Some scenes in mind can involve various labyrinth walkways outside the test chambers where you have to escape from a Military Android that wants to kill you. (And maybe if you fall down to the abandoned enrichment center, deal with an escaped Mantisman.)

The story can end with GlaDOS herself congratulating you at being the only human to survive the test and as a "reward" for being the ideal killing machine, turns you into a loyal cyborg with the parts of the android that has been chasing you.

I can use Portal 2's Community Test Chamber editor to make various chambers and I have Hammer to make ustom maps. As for custom Personality Cores and Military Androids I don't know.

I don't know if it has been done before, but since VALVe made Team Fortress and Half Life and there is also Gary Mod which experiments with the Steam engine, I wonder if somepony has ever extracted the AI or coding of a character from one steam game and put it in another.

For example, TF2 bot AI for an Aperture Science robot with a Pulse Rifle. Though would perhaps need something more intelligent.

I have a scene in mind where you navigate the labyrinth of walkways in Aperture facilities while a killer robot is after you. I imagine it be somewhat like Amnesia in which you have to use your wit to survive. In this case finding the right surfaces to portal away or to set various traps for the military android.

I might also go with the idea of introducing a new personality core (a reskin of Wheatley) who was assigned by GlaDOS to construct test chambers and he enjoys it as a form of art, all the more while ulterior motives to impress his boss, such as different methods of test motivation.

Welcome to yet another thread where I ask for free stuff cause I know there might be a chance somepony doesn't want it.

With summer sale underway, a whole bunch of summer cards are out again and I've been trying to collect them to craft them. If you happen to have cards and don't want them (Both summer and normal cards) I'll be happy to take them off your hands.

Just go ahead and send me a massage.
