While it might keep the game balanced & "as the dev's intended", that really can only go so far w/ a MP-based game these days.

Are you saying games shouldn't be well-balanced and as the devs intended?  What are your thoughts on boxed mac and cheese?

 

Bronight Updates:

 

Offworld Trading Company - Cool strategy/economic sim game.  Bah and I had no clue what we were doing and Parallacks graciously toyed with us until he finally had enough and bought me out.  Enjoyed the game enough to want to go back and do the tutorial at some point.

 

Deceit - This is bootleg Dead by Daylight (Weiler's words) but in this case Weiler is actually good at it.  Sneaky little infected bastard.  This game as a lot of potential but needs a lot of polish.  Don't know why it isn't still EA.

 

Then we played some Drawful 2 and Jackbox Party Box 2.  Fun times were had by all.  Tonight is...I forget, but I DLed the game.

How? All it would let me do is look at camera feeds.

I think it lets you spectate on terrorist Hunt.

hit '5' i think, sad I should know what it is but its more muscle memory, but I believe its just like in game, you use 5 to flip between your drones/cams and your view

which if you didnt know, you can view drones/cams during the game as well, they are not just for the start of the match

You can spectate in any game mode after death, you can access the cams/drones while alive, and you're able to switch between them after death. I have no idea what key you hit on PC. I play on Xbox and it's down on the Dpad.

Ubi has pushed Siege hard on the e-sports front which is in direct opposition to the whole "Let's turn my backyard into a Doom .wad!" thing.  Balance and map stability are exactly what people want from it.

 

Tonight's game is Sniper Elite 4 which had to be Bah setting it up.

It must, I didn't die often in TH but i know I suicide bomber got me at least once and I didn't remember having a disconnect from the game like I did when playing the PvP.

which if you didnt know, you can view drones/cams during the game as well, they are not just for the start of the match

 

Cool, I'll have to play around with it... and I sort of knew that but never really bothered to use it. 

 

 

You can spectate in any game mode after death, you can access the cams/drones while alive, and you're able to switch between them after death. I have no idea what key you hit on PC. I play on Xbox and it's down on the Dpad.

 

So down on the D-Pad.  I probably didn't get to that button truth be told, obviously I didn't as complained about it so I guess what I'm saying is I never would have thought to try that button.

 

Anyhow, that would certainly help...   Being destroyed every round isn't fun but only being able to view two cameras during the rest of the round is enough to make you question why you're even bothering. :lol:

Thanks for the reminder.  I did download SE4 so I'll be ready to go.

 

And I forgot it was RSS MysterD was talking about.  Yeah, there's no chance that's ever going to get SDK support for people to do their own levels, etc.  That's fun in a game like KF2, but RSS is not the game for it.

I don't have any glasses.  Will Google give me a template where I can print my own?

Nah, I hate dealing with traffic and driving and they anticipate both to be pretty bad for the eclipse.

I was planning on driving downstate for the eclipse but my older son -- and eclipse watching companion -- starts college that day and wants to make his first day of classes.  Driving six hours each way (more with eclipse traffic) alone doesn't sound much fun so I'm likely staying home unless he has a change of mind.

 

Maybe I'll play Universe Sandbox and hurl the moon into Illinois.  Take THAT!

Midwest isn't supposed to be that bad.  Out west usually has clear skies this time of year so it was a big draw.  And S. Carolina is the nearest place for the entire Eastern Seaboard so they'll be packed.  It'll be crowded and busy in the Midwestern locations but not as bad as the two ends.

Nah, you'd use the cereal box and not the toilet paper rolls.

I'm rather shocked that I haven't seen one of the cereal brands not hyping this and shouting "Free Eclipse Viewing Pinhole Projector" on their boxes.

I should be able to see the totality from my house. Might get called into work since they're calling it 'one of the biggest events in its history' due to an estimated 250k extra people in the area. Gas has magically gone up $1.50 in the past two days too.

Deceit still needs work.  Kinda buggy.  Its something worth revisiting in a few months.  They need a tutorial or something stat.

Its a little harder with everyone in discord narcing you out instantly when you take blood .  Online you can probably get away with more.

I live in a town that is usually pretty touristy, and they're predicting something like 40,000 people arriving per day starting yesterday... And the town size alone is 80,000. Gas stations have been running out of gas since yesterday, I've had co-workers Air BnB'ing rooms for $400+ a night, and Monday/Tuesday are WFH days for most at my work... It is insane. We've even got a congregation of "Rainbow Family" (no, I'm not using a derogatory term, but that is what the group has named themselves) that came through twenty years ago and caused a ton of issues. Worst part is my fiancee and I are getting married tomorrow and have to make it up a mountain through groups of thousands... All for two minutes of totality. Oh, and I forgot to mention forest fires have been pretty bad this summer so far, and with thousands more drunk idiots in the woods, we're almost guaranteed to have smoke-blockage.

 

On topic, I got 2nd place in PUBg on Sunday, it felt rewarding and miraculous and I typically hate games like this, but this one touches me in most of the right ways (and a few wrong ways.)

Yea, the Rainbow People. They're basically hippies. Like real deal kind of hippies, not fake Starbucks ones. They live on communes and shit all over the place.

 

I grew up in North Florida and there's a commune in the Ocala National Forest. When I was like 17, me and some friends went to one of their "Gatherings", it was goofy as hell, but the drugs were free, which is why we went lol.

I'm pretty much totality at my house... Or a couple of miles from it. Gas is actually 5 cents cheaper than last week.

I just hope I can sleep... Not use to sleeping when it's dark out. lol

I know you were talking about MysterD, but this is the real reason I don't care about the eclipse.

 

I may get Domino's because it's a day that ends in "y" to celebrate the eclipse.

Bah grew up in North Florida, so I assume he just had to go to the next trailer to get that.

I had mild interest in the eclipse but to see it totally and avoid horrible traffic I would have to go to somewhere random in northern Kansas or something and with 6+ hour drive and nobody else interested I guess I'll ignore it.

Was there a price glitch on SE4 or ya'all fakeybroed SE4?
