I've heard about how amazing TF2 is, but I got it (cos its free, and who wouldn't?) and I didn't find anything TOO amazing about it. Sure, it was fun, but not mind-blowingly amazing.

Any positives you want to outline?

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

The class system. Other shooters may have loadouts or custom appearances but they all still play the same. In TF2, every different class plays completely differently and that adds to variety both on a surface level and makes the matches so much more dynamic than other shooters, with players on both teams changing guys just for the ♥♥♥♥ of it or to counter the other team or to better accentuate their own. In other games you're just doing the exact same thing the whole time, you know?

I guess.

I just found TF2 a bit annoying because every tactic I used could be outwitted by a noob, because of the way a class is designed.

So while I was an Engineer, I kept making turrets, dispensers, etc. The moment I turned my back, even for half a sec, they'd be gone, probably by noob Spies or just dead in the heat of battle.

Soldiers are okay, they die a bit easy

Sniper, which I liked, sometimes annoyed me cos he's easy as to be picked off.

I tried the other types, too, but maybe I should give TF2 another go. Just maybe

Engineer tips: Always have your back to a wall. Kill spies before destroying sappers. You'll almost never run out of pistol ammo, so shoot everybody you see.

Soldier tips: Learn to rocket jump by shooting at your feet and jumping. The gunboats (steel-capped boots which replace the shotgun) help immensely for beginners when it comes to rocket jumping. Rocket jumping and/or using the Equalizer (pickaxe) are essential in moving quickly, although only the latter while damaged.

Sniper tips. Stay aware of your surroundings; spies love knocking down snipers. Take cover whenever you're not shooting. Don't go too close to the front line. The SMG and machete are only backup weapons for when enemies get close to you, or if you suspect someone nearby to be a spy; in all other situations, use the rifle or bow. (The bow is also useful for medium-close range, if you're not prepared to switch to your knife.)

Niice.

I'll certainly give it another go soon. When I can, actually. I'm away from home, and I never thought I'd miss my PC's power so much.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

I just played the demo on Steam yesterday. Style in spades but that's all it had going for it. It ended after I left the Bastion for the second level, mind you, so if it suddenly gets deeper and more complex or in any way fun somewhere before the half-way point then maybe I'll give it a shot.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

Bastion is awesome. I just wish it was longer.

Speaking of the Summer of Arcade stuff though, I would also recommend Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet (Metroidvania with a spaceship) and From Dust (super awesome god game). The latter is also available on Steam as of a few days ago, but it has some major DRM issues and I encourage everyone to opt for the console version instead.

Well, Xenoblade certainly is interesting.

Just got to Bionis' "Lower Back" and now the party of perverts are talking about getting inside him.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

I just got Henry Hatsworth yesterday for five dollars.

This game is totally ridiculous in the best way possible.



And my DS collection grows ever larger. I think this is my 48th DS game.
Damn I love my DS.

Sonic Rush
Spectrobes
Spider-Man 2
Star Fox Command
Super Mario 64 DS
Trace Memory
Urbz: Sims in the City (The)
Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble!
Yoshi's Island DS

That's 48 not counting the Metroid demo that came with the 3DS.... I'd have 50 games if you count that and OoT 3D as a DS game. Even more if you count the DSi and Virtual Console downloads on 3DS.


Note that I do NOT recommend a game simply if it is in my collection.
There are several games on that list that I am ashamed to own (Spider-Man 2, Fullmetal Alchemist, the Urbz... stuff like that were gifts many years ago from family), and many games that seem odd (Feel the Magic is probably the most unexpected title for someone to see on my shelf, but in my defense, that was when the DS just came out, had no games, and I heard this game was like WarioWare, so I bought it out of desperation).

Spectrobes sucks so hard it wasn't worth the six bucks I paid for it, I haven't played more than ten minutes of it.

Other than the ones I just mentioned, most of the other games on my shelf range from at least tolerable to awesome.


I also do have a running list of DS games I plan to track down, including some Castlevanias, some Atlus games, and some other miscellaneous stuff.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

I got Shadows of the Damned yesterday


It's made my boner for suda51 get even bigger, I ♥♥♥♥ing love this game. The music is solid (forgot who made it, the guy who did the music for Silent Hill 2 right?), the combat feels great thanks to Mr. Shinji Mikami, and it's got suda51's personality and quirks written all over it.

It doesn't take itself too seriously and it still manages to be interesting enough for me to actually want to watch the cutscenes.

Re: Private Gaming Corporal Discussion

The Torchlight demo is fantastic. Perfect demo, showcases all kinds of different gameplay options and a good long stretch of dungeoning and/or questing. The Bastion people could learn a thing or two about how to make a good demo.

60 sounds a bit expensive, considering it's a first-party Nintendo title and that the country we're talking about is the US.

On the other hand, $100 here wouldn't surprise me even slightly.
