The other thing was: well, Mafia 1 really force the rules of the road, too. Cops will come after you for not stopping at stop signs, not stopping at red lights, driving on sidewalk, speeding, and other things of that.

 

Mafia 3 does have some road rules, but nowhere like they were enforced in Mafia 1.

Well, as it's fresh in the brain I have to say--the only "rules of the road" in Mafia III are these: 1) don't get in an accident with a police car [seriously, they'll come after you like you're John Dillinger], and 2) don't run over pedestrians in the line-of-sight of a police officer.

Battlefield Revolution is 30 bucks on Origin

 

Pretty phenomenal price for the complete edition considering all the DLC has yet to be released

I had my hopes up that this would be a version of Battlefield set in 1776 yet still using "experimental repeating rifles" and red dot sights but it's just BF1 with all the DLC included.  Hopesdeleted.jpg but indeed a good price.

Legend of Kyrandia is what I always think of when I see Westwood. Classic but hard, don't think I ever beat it.

I'm replaying the series... One more time.

Kyanos, Syntax, Spoder and I played Road Redemption yesterday. I already knew the game was fun in MP, but playing with the bros was truly amazing. Need to reschedule. I learned some things:
1) Spoder is santa and a traitor
2) Syntax is always behind me, waiting for me to drop a can bomb (as weird as it sounds)
3) Blue FTW

R.I.P Visceral Games.

The funny thing is, I remember when EA was a brand new company.  They packaged games like record albums.  They had a philosophy of putting the developer names on the game boxes (which was not typically done), and allegedly were to pay them better and treat them like rock stars.  I had games like M.U.L E., Pinball Construction Set, The Larry Bird/Dr. J basketball game where you could shatter the backboard.  They were founded on forward thinking philosophies.  When did things start to go downhill?  When did they become a corporate monster?  Madden?

 

TLDR: I'm old.

Yeah, Road Redemption was good times although we had light attendance due to some people having real life stuff pop up.  We'll likely reschedule it for next month some time since October is all booked up.  You can't host private games but rather you tell the game how many open slots the server will need and then invite your friends once you're in.  Pretty sure the servers have ten slots so, if you have 6-8 people, you're going to largely dominate the server population.  Last night, I think our server wasn't full much of the time so I don't know how popular the multiplayer is but that only works to our advantage in faking a private game.  And, yes, despite nominally being on my team Juanjava had a bad habit of dropping pipe bombs in my path during the race.

 

Tonight we're playing Red Faction: Guerilla which combines shooting people with knocking shit over.  This is another game from the "Everyone said they'd play this again... eight months ago" archive so maybe you still have it installed.  Or maybe you need to install it.  But you do need to be there, or else we'll come to your house and shoot things and knock shit over.

Installed the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update overnight. I dunno how long it took, but I know it took a while for a few people on Facebook so may want to schedule it similarly.

 

The most interesting addition for me was the addition of GPU monitoring to the task manager

 
Driver version: 23.21.13.8792
Driver date: 10/05/2017
DirectX version: 12 (FL 12.1)
Physical location: PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0
 
Utilization 1%
Dedicated GPU memory 0.2/8.0 GB
Shared GPU memory 0.0/8.0 GB
GPU Memory 0.3/16.0 GB

 

 

Thats what it shows when you copy/paste it. It doesn't do temps or anything like that. It shows up in the Performance section of Task Manager.

 

There's an emoji keyboard that is accessible by pressing the Windows key and the period (.) (I put some emojis here from the keyboard and after I pressed send they disappeared lol)

 

Calculator does currency conversions now with updated exchange rates whenever you want them. I don't know what source they use.

 

Here's some detailed stuff. I dont care about the VR thing.

Sound advice for RL as well.  Thanks!

Nah, it wasn't Madden, at least the beginning of Madden as Madden was the first 11 vs 11 football game and was a hugely revolutionary title.

I think, truthfully, it started with the Dreamcast as they decided it wasn't worth their time and skipped it.

They even thought about releasing their own console... or at least that was the rumors.

This was Sega's fault. Sega Sports was already a thing. Sega tried to play hardball and lost. The fact that the PS2 was already in development and PSX was already the market leader also hurt the Dreamcast. People were willing to wait as Sega's strategy (despite the Dreamcast being a good console) in marketing was terrible post-launch. EA putting games on Dreamcast alone doesnt keep it alive. EA was already huge in 99 as well.

 

EA exploded when they started purchasing exclusive rights to things. They killed their competition doing this. They also relied heavily on yearly titles, especially with the sports titles, which keeps development costs way down since a lot of these titles are on the same engines and are just roster updates with some minimal gameplay tweaks. Sell millions of copies of Madden and FIFA year to year without having to do much.

 

Yes, it began with Madden. The explosion of that franchise alone gave EA the corporate strength to start buying studios.

Seems a little low, actually.

 

On the KF2 front, the stuff you get from the Dosh Vault will be tradeable in a few weeks so something to consider if you get doubles or stuff you'll never use and were considering Recycling it.  Of course, after a few weeks of people using the Vault, I don't know what the value will be for that stuff.

 

Edit: Or not, looks like the source was in error

I got a craptastic yellow gas mask only for one character.  1 cent here I come.  

 

BTW,  the map Fox found is basically cheating.  In no reasonable world should I be soloing suicidal weeklies on the first try. 

 

Georgebot, go to the KF2 workshop and download KF-Construct.    You should be able to solo that easy.

I think of it more as Easy Mode. Cheating would be if Zeds were blocked from reaching you or it manipulated the spawns or something.

I agree that Fox is a terrible person though for finding that map.

I'm just glad to be able to help with the map I found.  I don't mind sharing with other people.  It's even helped Syntax.

Yes, KF-Construct. It's basically a wide open plain so it's hard to get swarmed or trapped and you can easily avoid missile attacks from Husks or the Patriarch. Boring for regular play but nice for grinding weekly events or now daily Dosh rewards.

Wish people would get soft-banned for writing stupid ass reviews on Steam that have nothing to do with the actual game.

 

South Park Butthole has terrible reviews because ppl hate MTX's and  Denuvo and UPLAY.

 

Ridiculous.

Wait, where did you read that? I thought all rewards from Dosh Vault would be untradable and unmarketable. Wouldn't make any sense to change that. 

 

Edit. Pedro, did you learn from Spoder how to cheat in a game? Why can't you learn the good things instead :(

I played like 10 minutes last night.  Was fun.  More of the same from the first, which is not a bad thing.
