So I have to face facts: I kind of suck at TF2.

But here's the thing: Just like pretty much everything in this world, first person shooters (TF2 included) are learned skills. When you put the proper effort into them, you become better.

And if you don't want to get better at a game (or just this particular game), that's fine. I do, though, and I'd like to document my rise from scrub to... not quite so much of a scrub.

Which is why I started my Let's Learn channel [www.youtube.com] a few weeks back, but it's become pretty obvious that I need help. See, the other reason why I started it was to get input from people that know the game better. For example, in my Fastlane video [www.youtube.com], I point out that I have no idea what I'm supposed to do when a medic counter-pops on me.

So I come to you, Ponychanners. You guys are very supportive people and I think you guys could help me see some errors that I made that I just didn't see or maybe point me in the direction of some videos or guides or something that could explain some tools of the trade and what have you.

I'm coming up on four weeks into the project and I'm already seeing extremely good improvement, but I'd like to see more and I'd like your help in achieving it.

YES.

Shattered Memories and Downpour were great and all, but a Kojima-fronted Silent Hill game already sounds like GOAT-tier material IMO.

The SH fanbase like to bitch about every game that came out after 3.

Funnily enough, it becomes incredibly obvious that 50-75% of these people have never actually played any of those games when asked why they're so terrible. The resulting complaints can basically be summed up as "we want games that are exactly like 1, 2, and 3".

Personally, while I don't particularly care for Origins and Homecoming, I love how the series doesn't really play it safe like so many other game franchises, and is willing to try out different thing.

If anypony's skeptical of 4 (thankfully, though, the general reception for this has been getting more positive recently), Origins, Homecoming, Shattered Memories (which is a reimagining of the first game that runs in a different direction, and not a remake), and Downpour, I'd recommend playing them for yourselves (used copies aren't too expensive), form your own opinions, and ignore the fanbase.
>> No. 132128
Hopefully, Kojima's kept on a bit of a leash.

Now, I love the guy, and I think he's a genius, but for him, subtlety must be some kind of food.
>> No. 132130

Saying Shattered Memories is a re-imagining is all well and good, but it's....also kind of a lazy game from a creative point of view. It's incredibly cliched and predictable. The plot twists are all exactly what you expect, everything feels very ham-handed and melodramatic, and it really doesn't do as well as the original did in actually building up its atmosphere.

It does have an awesome UFO ending though.

  It is claim that the next Tomb Raider will be an Xbox exclusive.

Even they say it isnt a temporal exclusive i dont know.

the last game had a hard time to be a success, it sold millions of copies and was a failure for a long time.

and this new version, will be limited to xbox. that will be a failure.

now, maybe is just a temporal releases. or unless microsoft pay for the rest of the imaginary sales.

  Anypony heard of it? Came out recently on Steam.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/248310/

At first glance, you might assume that it is a Sonic clone. It is not, although it has similarities. Only one of the three (for now) playable characters sorta half plays (and looks) like him. The others have unique play styles that are different and definitely not Sonic-like.

It is a challenging game, but fair. Don't go in expecting a walk in the park like most modern games.

If you enjoyed Genesis-era action-platformers, this game is for you.

It has a fantastic soundtrack, too.

It's a game that I was interested in when I heard about it, but I had no idea that it was already out.

Out through the days of video games for the Famicom there were hacked versions of other existing video games made to trick collectors into thinking that modern 16-bit games were on the older consoles.

Hacks of modern, 16-bit games such as Sonic The Hedgehog or Donkey Kong Country were downgraded and modified into games such as The Panda Prince or Somari The Adventurer. These games are hard to find as cartages, But they can be found as downloadable ROMs and files.

What's Victoria 2? Victoria 2 is a Paradox grand strategy game (which basically means it's Civilization on crack) and a sort of alternate history simulator where you, the player, lead your nation to greatness from 1836-1940ish.

I'm organizing a Victoria 2 multiplayer game using the Divide by Zero mod (http://tinyurl.com/v2-pdm-bdz). In order for the mod to work, you will need both game expansions (A House Divided & Heart of Darkness).

So far, all of the confirmed players are bronies. There are still many quality nations which have yet to be claimed. If you've never tried multiplayer Vicky 2, this is a perfect opportunity.

We're hoping for an interesting mix of player shenanigans and rebel swarms. Infamy is brutal in DbZ, and the map is substantially altered from other mods (and vanilla).

start date: Thursday, August 14, 2014
stress test: Tuesday, August 12, 2014 (attendance optional)

game start: promptly at 7p EST on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Don't be late.

  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.

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.

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 games do you often play?

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."

  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.
