Hey Ashes -
You linked low-profile PS3 controller wrapper/driver at some point in the past. I remember you saying it was better than other options. I know I kept a link somewhere, but can't find it. Any chance you can tell me what the name/link was again?

My Xbox Controller is being a dick and I probably won't be able to get a replacement until sometime next week.

I use this one, and I have had no issues whatsoever.

It's my game. I'm now a game developer. You will soon be able to buy into the early access of it on Steam for $100 $99.99. Don't want the riff-raff garbaging up the forum during the important Alpha testing. Not just anyone can simulate playing a simulator of all other simulators in an extreme way.


But the question is, will I be able to simulate driving an hour to cut down just one tree, then jump from rooftop to flooftop while finding company among the brawny native gents with their succulent fruits?

Also, you should call it Motoki Simulator.

Just got this in my email.

Apparently not only is Age of Barbarian now on Desura but there's also Age of Barbarian Arena too in case you wanted to kick your friends' asses while wearing a thong.

I hope this means it will be showing up in an Indie Bundle soon. Definitely near the top of my want in a bundle but don't want to spend $10 on it list.

 

I'd vote for it in a hot minute if it ever gets added to Greenlight. The thing with Greenlight is no matter how trashy a game is it's guaranteed there are a hundred trashier ones a large portion of which will get in at some point.

Been playing BL2 free weekend. Can't see much difference with BL1, but that's not a bad thing. Ended playing 2 hours straight on single player, having some fun, so I think I'll buy the GOTY when it goes at -75%

Anyone ever heard of Super Robot Wars? Too bad the game series never make it to PC and only exclusive to consoles, it has almost every japanese animated robots in the game.

Now, somebody recommend me a game where I can run around as a giant mech blowing stuff up.

:whee:

As was already recommended, Hawken is probably your best bet for a modern mech game. Square's crowdfunding platform also has one up which looks promising, but that's quite a ways off at this point. Something to watch anyway.

 

My favorite is still MechWarrior 3. I could never get very far in it, but always had great fun overloading my lasers at the helpless civilians (wait, was I not supposed to shoot them?).


Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Yes, I have a few of the games.

It's the kind of thing that's near-impossible to bring to the US since the rights to all of the series (even those all under a single Japanese company) are owned by entirely different companies that licensed them for US localization and distribution.  (I'm still amazed we ever got Tatsunoko vs Capcom, honestly.)

I used to play Super Robot Wars in PS1! I remember, its in jap language, I didn't understand anything about the story and its just a hit and miss on what a certain button will do. :wall:  But I definitely enjoy that game and we only rely on magazine for guides as internet is still not mainstream that time.

Although I liked the older turn-based games in the series a bit more, Front Mission Evolved is still a fun mech game with some nice customization options.  I also enjoyed Transformers: War for Cybertron a lot more than I thought I would.

After 18 months in ye-old-backlog... I finally dusted off and beat Hydrophobia: Prophecy.  6GB of disk space have been reclaimed.

 

I beat it in four steam hours (probably 3-4 hours, discounting alt-tab/afk).  Um uh... well... They did a really nice job with the water effect (and at low computational cost.  As for the game... well the first 3/4 are a meh shooter with light puzzles.  The last quarter, gets more interesting since you finally get your damn water powers... which just felt underwhelming.  They have a semi-novel story idea but they just don't tell it well.

 

Well, I can finally say I've played it.  I don't wholly want my 3-4 hours back.. but they sure could have been spent playing a better game.

And that's another game that will never get finished. Hydrophobia Prophecy was meant to be three episodes. Well since the game tanked, the studio closed.

I still prefer the MechCommander series.

That pretty much sums it up for me.  It felt like the majority of the game could have been the opening tutorial level.  The last sliver wasn't too bad, but by that time, the damage was already done.  Like so many indies, it had potential...albeit wasted potential.

Syntax Error

Now, somebody recommend me a game where I can run around as a giant mech blowing stuff up.

 

Back in the day, I once went to some place where you climbed into a "cockpit" and controlled a mech in some ten (?) person battle royale video game in first person (each person in their own cockpit video game thingie).  It was fairly amusing except that you paid like $10 for the pleasure of having the die-hards beat the crap out of you while you tried to find the "launch missile" button.  And this was back in the early-mid 90's so $10 then was like... a hundred-gorillian dollars in today's money.

 

Been playing BL2 free weekend. Can't see much difference with BL1, but that's not a bad thing.

 

They cleaned up some game mechanics although I can't think of any off hand (it's been a while).  Mainly it just has a better plot than "Go find the vault because... umm... look, just go find the vault and shoot stuff, ok?" which makes it more enjoyable (to me) since you feel like you're progressing through something besides just experience levels.  That's for the single-player game of course -- shooting stuff with friends is its own reward.

You're not talking about Cybertroopers Virtual On are you?  I don't remember that being all that much money.. I do remember it being great though.  I also remember getting it for the Sega Saturn & it being a bit of a let-down without the twin joysticks like the arcade... but I still played the hell out of it.

Was it a BattleTech Center?

 



#20998 - Glenn -

I completely forgot BattleTech Center was a thing that existed.  I now remember always wanting to try it back then but never being able to.  I was a huge battletech (and other tabletop & pen&paper rpg) nerd back then (in addition to being a gamer) so BTC was right up my alley.  Unfortunately I grew up in NY & since the closest one was MN it never happened.

Are we supposed to mention that? I got bitched out once for mentioning that Ducktales added cards. Also I just watch whatever game Drabelincoln is idling and I know cards have been added because he never plays his games.

 

Oh and FWIW Cthulhu Saves the World is getting cards tomorrow (supposedly).

I notice you save the already bundled and cheap games for the giveaways you do when most Americans aren't actually at work while the Euro timed ones that are 11 AM PST on weekdays get all the nice shiny new stuff that most of us here don't already own.

 

Yes, I am entitled.  [-(

That's the best way to figure out what games have cards added. Stalk Drabe.
