    TIAM: General Gaming edition

    It's technically good for the real PS2, because we're sniping anything that they do since the codebases are similar - people are theorizing that PS2's DX11 conversion may have been a joint effort between PS2's team and the people dev-ing PSA. But I still don't like it; the type of game it's trying to be is antithetical to what PlanetSide is. It's like if you modded Halo Reach and removed the high jumps, made Sprint the only armor ability, cranked the damage up on all weapons, removed respawns, removed melee and gave a knife slot instead and made it a bomb defusal gamemode only. And also added crates that had rare knives that russian mafiosos would use to launder money. One of the strengths of PS2 is that per server, all PS2 players can provide gameplay for one another because they're all on the same game instance. If PSA doesn't get really good numbers I wonder how common the "500 player battle royale" and "250v250 TDM" that they want really will be. I imagine that a lot of lobby merging will have to happen before a game gets going. One of the things PS2 players whined about a LOT was ping issues for people playing abroad (mainly Chinese players flooding the US West server with high-ping players); PS2 team fixed that by adding a new Asia server. If or when PSA starts getting low player count, it's going to be aggregating people from all across the world into their "large matches". The ping issues will be awful, and even worse than other games because of PS2's engine having lots of quirks that make ping issues worse. Maybe it'll be fine. PS2's shooting is pretty solid once you get used to the mechanics, and the maps should be nice and expansive. But it seems a little... wrong.

    The problem with using the same cake mix in a larger cake pan, is that you will have a really thin cake. And probably wont bake like it should. Anyway, every time I see some game getting either a massive hundreds vs hundreds or a current bandwagon mode, it doesnt has any depth, gets abandoned or both.

    Of course... it all comes together now. A WW2-themed Battle Royale game where 15 different classes (one of whom is a space marine time traveler from 2232) compete in an open world with hunger/thirst mechanics and MOBA towers you can spawn in via killstreak. The top 3 winners get 3/2/1 lootboxes that they can open for cards to play in the minigame that awards crafting materials they use to build new guns and cosmetics to customize their loadout. And the battle royale "bomb" zone or whatever its called will turn you into a zombie if it kills you. I mean you of course die but your corpse becomes a computer-controlled zombie at which point it hunts down other players and it does like 5 damage and dies in one headshot it's really shitty but you get an achievement if it kills someone. Why contain it?

    Joking aside, PS Arena is essentially PlanetSide Lite. It's going to have the shooting mechanics and physics of PS, but in a lobby shooter game. Currently slated to have big team deathmatch (devs saying 250 v 250?) and a Battle Royale mode with up to a thousand players. Maps are big, supposedly only one map on launch that is similar to PS2's Amerish map. Pretty much all art assets are from PS2 except for a few armor and weapons. It will feature vehicles but it seems like they're fixed-loadout vehicles without customization. So far the Flash, Vanguard, Sunderer have been shown as well as a hoverbike. No word on air vehicles. It's going to have a "season" set of development where they add new things like a CTF mode periodically. Buy the season pass! So if you liked PlanetSide but didn't like all the things that made it PlanetSide (somehow) then this is the game for you! Trying to not get angry.

    You got the Battle Royale, MOBA, open world, survival meters and WW2. You are missing the FUTURE WAR, card games, lootboxes, hero/class shooters, zombies and crafting, all this being played in a VR headset using a plastic toy instrument.

    Someone should make a WW2-themed Battle Royale game in an open world with hunger/thirst mechanics and MOBA towers you can spawn in via killstreak. Put it on Steam for 20 dollars call it like "The meme game for fuckers" or something I don't know it can be shit it doesn't matter it will make money. If I missed a fad of the past 20 years let me know cause I know I did.

    Some stuff on why Mikasa and Levi are so strong, why Armin visits Annie so much and basically everyone is playing 4D chess but then someone throws a battleship board on top of it.

    Here's Day 6! Today, I have brought yet another TF2 update idea! It's in the OP if ya'll wanna have a look!
  19. Here's a challenge:


    Start a browser in private browsing, for a fresh history.

    Go to youtube without logging in.

    Repeatedly watch whatever video you want, then return to the front page, making note of the recommeneded videos.

    Your score is the number of videos required before Family Guy stops being recommended.

    Lower scores are better.


    Hard Mode: Get rid of late night talk shows, movie trailers, and sports shows too.


    Impossible Mode: Get rid of bullshit clickbait list videos.

      After 50 videos I'm throwing in the towel. Final thing: wDVsVzG.jpg


      If there is hope for impossible it is finding some 3rd world country and going hard on it because literally every other topic will give you a bullshit list. And Family Guy will still be there half the time anyway.

    3. Gyokuyoutama


      Just to be fair I tried this myself, with the impossible challenge.  It's technically possible because the browser I use with months of history doesn't get any of those videos.  But I gave up on a fresh history after 160 videos.


      The interesting thing about it is that it feels like youtube is actively taunting you.  You'll get an almost perfect slate of recommendations, with one offending video (often the family guy asian drycleaner video, or the brian forced mating one).  Then you watch another video, come back to the main page, and nearly every single recommendation is stuff you'd get on a fresh browser, with nothing whatsoever related to what you've been watching.

      Yeah my usual account will pass it all, but damn you have to go far before Youtube stops telling you Brain forced mating is something you want to see.

    I also find that it is much easier to unlock challengers if you play like a scrub, like spamming attacks, whiffing moves, not dashing at all, etc, it seems to make the computer go way easier on you.
  21. it was taiwan to be precise, back when I lived there, it was, especially with kindergarten/1st grader humor levels.
  22. My school stuff was always addressed to “Benjamil” :(
  23. My last name isn't really that hard for most people to pronounce. However, it's very uncommon, and it's only a couple letters off from a much more common last name. People often assume my last name is the more common one.
  24. My last name is also a common first name, so people at work will often refer to me by my last name. Despite by first name being CLEARLY VISIBLE in my email signature, at the top of the email, or on the phone display. And I even introduce myself on the phone with my first name. I've even introduced myself to someone as My First Name in person, showing them my badge (with only my first name) then somehow they still followed up in email with my last name. I don't work in the military.
  25. Are you even chinese for that to be a problem?
  26. Thats nothing, my Chinese name is a few strokes off from another common character, and if that happens, my name almost sounds like "asparagus" .
