    The Official Random Image Thread!! SPUF style

    I've seen too many good men die to care about fighting anymore.

    What do you look for in a game?

    "Can I run it?" is the big one. Other than that I mostly just look for shit that interests me, vague I know but I know it when I see it. When I learned Victoria 2 (and HOI3) (and EU3) I just picked a country and went in hard and had the wiki open if I needed anything specific. That's part of the fun in my opinion, not knowing what the fuck is going on and why you have no money and why it took you 20 years to research "medicine". By the end of that run you'll have a good enough grasp on the important bits.

    It's like the local garage band played a round of Killing Floor 2 and thought "Damn we can make a soundtrack to this!"

    It was a couple years ago, and I've actively avoided saying it because 1) it seems like it was forced from the top-down because it's got that sense of "Well I want to insult someone but I don't wanna say any bad words to do it" and 2) I'm being dragged into the future kicking and screaming. Up until I was about 12 or so I always played games on the easiest difficulty level. I distinctly remember the change - I was replaying Ace Combat 5 for what must have been the dozenth time and I moved the difficulty from easy or very easy to the hardest I could and it felt so much different - I could actually take damage? I had less than 99 missiles? MY GUN DIDN'T HAVE INFINITE AMMO?!? It felt like a whole different game and was so much more of a challenge I decided I'd do that for every game from now on, which I mostly have. The only large exception is strategy games because as you say the computer cheats, and unlike other genres it's really glaringly obvious. I have five iron deposits, my opponent has five iron deposits. So we're evenly matched right? WRONG he's much more powerful than you because this difficulty gives him 2x good shit and half the bad shit you do. At that point it's not real strategy it's mostly just knowing enough about the game and its arbitrary difficulty rules to cheese your way to the win. Which of course can be a challenge and is why every now and then I head back into Civ on my now-standard Emperor difficulty and prepare for my eventual try at Immortal. I understand that the AI needs to cheat in these games because quite simply it's dumb as shit in some ways and superhuman in others. So you gotta give it handicaps, but even so, defeating it at a certain point feels less like two equal forces colliding and more like an agile matador dancing around a dumber but much more massive beast. Fun that may be, and skillful are the people that do it well, but it's not what I feel a strategy game should feel like.
  6. Glideslope, khaganate, snaphance, transi. Not sure how obscure some of them are but autocorrect all thinks they're wrong so that's something at least.

    The dream may be dead but at least there's Artifact: The Dota 2 Card Game.
  9. There was a video I'm trying to find, it's a video of TF2. There's a guy commentating over one of his friends playing as a huntsman sniper on cp_well and talking about how great he is and how he's "just wrecking shop". I know it was made by a gaming group that was focused on COD (or maybe CS) and it was on SPUF in 2011 which is where I found it. My friend and I have been using "wrecking shop" as a euphemism for sucking shit for that long and so every year or so I search for it for about an hour before losing hope since all the tags I can think of are "TF2, sniper, huntsman, cp_well, wrecking shop," and that gets you about half the TF2 videos ever made. It probably doesn't even exist anymore, sadly. Does anyone else remember it? It's really bugging me because I've refound videos that had a lot less views with even vaguer descriptions but this one eludes me.
  10. Just like SPUF, then. Any thread older than 2 years would be about 70% banned.

    You can do something to make a shitload of bosses spawn in a certain area I know that. Don't ask me how though I have no fucking clue.
