So last night I'm doing squad in pubg with 3 friends, starts off pretty crazy. Halfway through get in a big fight and only two of us survive and we're way out of the circle. We loot bodies and run and heal as we go until we get a buggy, it's the 2nd to last circle and over pochinki so we just book it straight into town and jump in a house to heal all while getting shot at but somehow not hit. We go house to house and pretty soon there are 5 people left in the final circle and we are two of them. We are up in a house, I kill a guy across the road so down to 4. My buddy lights up a guy but gets knocked down and the guy he was shooting at gets killed by someone else so 3 left. The blue circle is cutting our house in half, I go to revive my friend, lag out, crash to desktop, and apparently my character lagged into the blue and died. Couldn't believe it, so disappointing.

Was the first time I've crashed out of the game in months and probably the first time I've crashed not in the first 10 or so minutes of a match.

Glad I didn't waste my precious $2 on Brink during the Summer Sale!

thats a long post for a game you will never buy

I own a pretty good amount of FF games on Steam already: FF3;5;6;7;8;9;10+10-2;13;13-2;LR (13-3); and Type-0 HD.

And I also have FF1 on NES; and FF5+6+7+8+9 on PSX.

 

I think me getting FF15:WE is inevitable.

 

EDIT:

Three codebases, three bugtesting channels.

 

How much money did EA and Microsoft dump on Squeenix for this to happen?

 

Edit: And wanna bet this is going to have Denuvo on top, too?

Hopefully, all 3 platforms get FF15 as a Complete Edition w/ all DLC's included and whatnot.

And Square loves to throw Denuvo on top, so...it's probably likely.

Tonight we're playing Versus Squad which was news to me since, last time I looked, we had no game set up for tonight.  You may remember it as "That game we thought wasn't as good as Nation Red but still pretty good" which should certainly inspire you to join us.  Maybe we'll be better and smarter players this time around and thus enjoy it more!  Or maybe we'll fail!  Either way, it'll certainly be a thing that happens and will involve shooting zombies so you better show up.

Yeah, I just scheduled it last minute.  I didn't know what else to schedule since I don't really buy bundles anymore and I noticed a lot of people bought it recently.

Why is Brink now free-to-play?

Is Splash Damage adding new DLC's of maps, weapons, and/or any other content soon or something?

was going to buy the Grand Theft Auto Collection on steam but the price shot up from $14.99 to $49.99 before the 8/25 expiration; I'm vexed.

I bought it during the summer sale, because I saw Bah (I think) wanted to play it.  I couldn't make it the night you tried it and its not looking promising tonight either.  I guess I should have saved my $3.75.

Anyone give Super Blood Hockey a try? Saw Northernlion play on Twitch and it looked pretty good so I was hoping for some more impressions. Seems to play like NES Ice Hockey (which I have very fond memories of) but with blood and fights. With Super Mega Baseball 2 getting pushed back to Spring I need some kind of sports fix so this looks like it could cure that itch.

I bought Brink on release for PS3 because I was a big fan of Enemy Territory.

 

I played it enough to platinum it, but sold it after because no one I played games with back then would buy it because of reviews.

 

I enjoyed it well enough.

The controls are a bit floaty. Unlike something like Ice Hockey or Blades of Steel, you're not going to have particularly crisp passes, nor do you have all that great of control of your goalie (you do get an option to manually control them if you complete some of the games' challenge levels) OR where your shots on goal are going. Basically, lots and lots of bouncy pucks. There are options that let you fiddle with this, but it's still not ever trying to be a Hockey sim- this is arcade hockey. 
 
But, the graphics are cute and the game doesn't take itself too seriously, for instance The Zamboni Driver runs over players and chases the referee around the ice between periods.

 

It's hardly what you'd call deep, but it'd be a fun couch co-op game, especially if you have a few controllers and a large enough screen or your pc set up to work with your tv. 

it's a very simple control scheme, just like older hockey games. One button to pass/hit people, one button to shoot, one button to change the player you're controlling. 

 

I bought it and am not regretting it, but I think nostalgia goggles are almost required. If you weren't around in the 80s, didn't play Ice Hockey or Blades of Steel on the NES or NHL 95 on the Genesis, it's probably an experience that would be lost on you.

 

Worst case, I have volunteered as a bundle sacrifice on this one.
(Dev says he's working on online multiplayer, but is honest in saying it wouldn't be around for at least a year- if ever- because the netcode is an absolute nightmare.)

170GB of HDD??!!? Holy smokes!!!

 

This must be the biggest game on the PC. This will take an eternity, even on Comcast Blast here, to download.

bah..this was nothing.  Imagine that you were back in 1997 when FFVII and 2 yrs later, FFVIII came out.  These 2 monsters had 4-5 discs while my average game back then required only 1 disc.

 

Battlefield 1 is mainly MP and it is already at 50GB at launch and 70-80GB post patch/expansion.  So FFXV is roughly 3 times as much, just like the olden days of JRPG

That reminds me a lot of the Kunio sports games.

Origin users REJOICE! FF15 will be available on the superior platform.

That's one less game I'll need to add as a non-Origin game to my library.

Yeah, I wouldn't buy this with any expectation of online MP. A More realistic possibility is that it's such a success that the dev includes it in a sequel, like how Metalhead did with Super Mega Baseball 2.

 

Either way, thanks for the review. Went back to watch some video of Ice Hockey and I can see what you mean about the controls being more floaty in SBH. Looks like there's a lot more momentum that carries your character so you can't make quick sudden turns in the opposite direction.

 

I'll probably give it a try and hope to have at least a couple hours of fun with it. Right now I need something to play outside of Speedrunners and Isaac.

 

EDIT: ~45 minutes into it and I'm enjoying it. You're on point about the floaty controls and how passes don't always go where you want them to. Doesn't happen all the time but just enough to be a nuisance. Other than that, it's pretty much a gorier version of Ice Hockey, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Yes, I have FF7+8 on PSX.

 

Never was a huge-as-hell download necessary in the old PSX days. You just swapped the disc when they told you to, basically.

I thought the developer said he still retains the rights to the game along with that.
Seems like he got more out of the deal compared to Microsoft.

Isn't this copyright infringement?
AshotP long ago already trademarked something very similar to that for his digital store...

No, it would be trademark infringement,
which means you are in violation of definition infringement.

Up to 440 hours of playtime on Steam the past 2 weeks. Feels like I've been idling forever now.
