I thought it was a great quote at least.


I've never played that game, is it good? How's the combat like?


>All good things come to those who have a bigger gun.

Game is good. But combat is terrible. You can switch between real time and turn based. Both of which are awful.


they didn't balance the combat at all. It can be hellish at the beginning but your character quickly becomes insanely overpowered no matter how you develop it

Red Orchestra 2 will be free for 24 hours starting tommorow. Similar to the Left 4 Dead 2 deal where downloading this will let you keep it forever


Rising Storm will also be the free weekend game too!


File: 1398230284717.gif (423.1 KB, 400x382, 1372443749571.gif)

Haven't played it since last year. Put a good 100 hours into it though.

If you get RS consider playing as Allies for the first few days. Americans are OP as fuck in RS with their Flamer spam and BAR/Garand spam.


>Following this, we will be rolling into a free weekend for Rising Storm (free for a limited time) as well as a discount!
Ah, rising storm won't be free to keep it seems.


The flamethrower truely is amazing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so37_1ia51Q (I am a Real American in Rising Storm)

It'll be discounted (75%) due to it being the free weekend game. Technically you can play the Rising Storm maps, but you'll be limited to rifleman and can't level up beyond a certain limit.


There was a thread on 4chins /v/ the other day about Tripwire saying they'll revoke your license key for the game as soon as someone reports you for "inappropriate" actions you've made ingame, such as grieving or "racism"

Not sure if this is true though

It's not like i play RO2 that much anyway

Does anyone remember the free encylcopedia discs you'd get with a new home-PC in the 90s?

I'm trying to find this one it was like an ecylcopedia, but you could click through worlds (City/suburbs/rainforest/snowy mountains) and it would have like a gif clip to animate between them and some sounds. You could click on almost any object and it would tell you about it.

Anyone else play this when they were babby?

Is anybody excited for this even a bit?

I sure am, but mostly because I bought a year's subscription to planetside 2 before I realized how awful it is and it fucking re-occured on me before I thought it would, and it automatically bought another godamn year sub on me.

So at least with this I can try eq2 or dcu or something.

So yeah, my $10 a month now gets me access to more games…although they are SOE games.

I am kind of afraid of checking out their other games in case I like them, since it's soe, and they *will* ruin them.

But I suppose at this point I have nothing to lose, since the year sub has already been paid for.


File: 1398268467186.jpg (252.77 KB, 1000x749, what is it where what.jpg)



Sony Online Entertainment. I'm guessing this all-access stuff is an all in one pass for SOE services (the games mentioned in the OP)


aaaaand they pushed it back

godfuckingdammit why would I ever listen to a date set by SOE?


yeah, they're lowering their all-access to be included in the price of a regular sub. Supposedly. I don't even know anymore

Darkest Hour has the best tech tree. Why didn't they just use that?


They're trying to make it easier for new players.

I found a pretty fun Victoria 2 mod. It's still work in progress, but it is definitely pretty fun as it starts in 1604 and goes all the way to 2023


Anyone have any tips for Victoria 2?



What tips specifically?

Don't understand the interface? Economy is mysteriously tanking for reasons you don't understand? Can't defend yourself vs Great Britain? Successfully got to the mid game and can't figure out how to keep your industrial score in an upwards trend?

I guess I'm asking what level of play you've gotten to.


Oh sorry was late.

I started a Modern Age mod game and the country I chose can't seem to make any brigades. I managed to change the government to a facist one to increase miltary spending and managed to get over 3000 soldiers in the population, but still can't seem to make any brigades yet.

I thought that would be enough to at least make one brigade, but I'm pretty confused.

How important are tariffs? Currently have it set to 100%.

Seems a lot like the last one, they haven't shown any of the mulatiplayer yet, think it's gonna be like sim city multiplayer.

Watched half and it really does look similar. The eras system sounds interesting, but I'll probably just wait for a sale. The draw distance in that video is odd though. Really low for some reason.

Is it true that the only thing left to do if you have all the freemcboot stuff on your usb, is to put ulaunchelf onto a dvd-r disk and it boots its self when you turn it on?

If so, how would i be able to play my ps2 iso game files?
There is no instructions how.
Would i just put them on my usb and when i click on the launch elf menu, to select the file from the usb or something?


game compatibility is known to be bad on usb boots.
you'd be much better off soft modding with freemcboot and burning your games.
browse gbatemp for more information
make sure to check method/ps2 model compatibility
the easiest solution of all, of course, is simply emulating

also, there are tons of guides for both methods you voracious cum ingesting fucktard


File: 1397913767754.png (18.26 KB, 735x366, closed eye drawing.png)

Forget about learning new program shit, i feel a tumor growing just trying to read the text.

If i play games from the theoretically already installed mcboot/launchelf whatever the fuck, would it just start the disk on its own as soon as i turn on the ps2 with the disk inside, or would i have to go onto the launchelf option and select the disk from the directory(would the option of clicking on the disk be in the directory?)

>you voracious cum ingesting fucktard

You only make me want to post more.


You need to patch your discs with ESR and then select ESR in free mcboot, so technically the disc won't autostart.

I wish I could help more, but I never used this and used to have a fliptop for my PS2 and swap magic. I now just use PCSX2 for PS2 games.

Oh and don't get mad at him. He's normally like that.


If you're playing from a burned disk, you just have the one game. Which should load through on start.
Or it might have been initial menu > start game
its some shit like that
doesn't fucking matter
the entire process is simple
1. get freemcboot on the ps2, there are a number of ways to do it. I covered the closed-tray sensors and did the swap-disk method with 007. then loaded the program off a usb
2. apply launchelf to iso file
3. burn new iso to disk
4. put in and play

but again its much easier to just use an emulator, both to set up and play

Let's have a community thing while it's still possible. The last short game did well, but due to inexperience and rushing things we ended up with AFK players and lots of AI's.

What is this game?

The game is real-time but played over several weeks. You can Iog in at any time of the day to check the progress of your ships, view the results of battles, and issue new orders. Perfect for conflicting time-zones and work/school.

Each Star you control will automatically build new ships, raise money for upgrades, and research new technologies.

Your job is to negotiate with the other players, dispatch ships to capture new stars, and choose where and how to upgrade your existing stars and technology. Expanding your empire.

No meta-alliances and roleplaying is encouraged. No need to install anything, game is fully HTML5 coded! We are starting at 22:00 GMT today, which is 2 hours from this post.
