Board games understand the pleasures of taking things out of the box

@Creamysmooth Whenever we play exploding kittens, the box is at hand. Anytime anyone gets a kitten, it's opened for 'MEOW' emphasis.

In other news. I just got confirmation that my Beasts of Balance kickstarter edition is en route to me since earlier today. Looking forward!

Star Wars Battlefront patch nerfs Boba Fett, DL-44, Bowcaster, Homing Shot

Salaman

Christ, bowcaster from 50 to 15 damage? That's going to become a bit useless then.
It's a pity, I enjoyed using that.
I'm crap with a DL-44, so no complaints in that being addressed. :-)

Anyone know of a way to reassign buttons to the joystick on PC?
I can only reassign the keybinds to mouse or keyboard which is no help.
With two hands on the joystick you can steer and slow up or down.
As it is, I need one hand on the keyboard to press a button for locking on, shields/missiles/etc

I actually read it once and though "so what's the website? Did I read over it?" Then read it again.
Then because I couldn't an article like this would exclude the link to the site it discusses, decided to check comments before carefully going over the article again for a third time.

I guess that concludes my twice-a-year journey to the front page then for this year.

Cheerleader reviews cheerleading game

Salaman

10 years ago

The traffic comment is a bit misleading. If you watch the video though she's mostly positive about the game and at the end of a series of moves made a throwaway "I feel lik I'm directing traffic" comment which wasn't part of her evaluation of the game.

It doesn't look like fun but no doubt a lot of the games I play won't look like fun to the people that will play this game either.

Seriously, I don't read Ellie reviews anymore.
You click on the review on the front page. You see Ellie on the top right and think "oh, a shit game then" and scroll down to see this confirmed in the score.

It takes about 5 seconds and a lot more efficient than actually reading the whole thing to find out why it's a shit game.

BioShock: A Defence

Salaman

Wow.. that's an odd article.
It's like a long one sided forum argument.

I think the writer mentioned towards the end that facing criticism head on isn't the best way to deal with it. I think I'll have to agree.

It doesn't make for a good read & it makes me feel like I unwittingly stepped in between two arguing spouses and am now stuck in the middle with arguments which have nothing to do with me and don't interest me flying around me.

It's badminton not badmington. It's only for lazies who don't want to do a real sport if you want to play it like that. A proper game of badminton is intense and far from standing about hitting a shuttle in turns.

So for someone who never plays games of this type it's a prefect first game. It rounds up all the best ideas of previous games but it's new and shiny and as I don't know any better I'll think it's pretty decent.
If I can convince a fellow clueless new to the genre player we can romp through on co-op having a good time

Bunch of whingey bald chicken fucking cunts.

I can't say I care for it or not at this stage. Sounds somewhat interesting but I'll just sit on the fence for another year or two until there's somethign more to actually base judgement on. I might even wait to call it great or crap until I've actually played it.

Wipeout Pulse

Salaman

11 years ago

I had around 70 golds on my US copy (bought US PSP + Wipeout when there on vacation just around the launch) and then lost the UMD. I think I left it on a plane.
I just got hold of a new copy but as it's a Euro version the saves don't work and I had to restart from scratch. I have about 50 gold medals now and it's such good fun.

I've not noticed cheating AI though.
However, if you are in 2nd place and you both go over a weapon's pad before you overtake, you can expect the AI to use whatever weapon it picked up. If it was a boost they'll turbo straigh past you the second you overtake, if it was missiles they'll fire them (sometimes miss though), etc.
It may appear it's a case of "cheating AI" but it doesn't always happen and if it does, it's just a matter of the AI using strategy much as I would myself. (holding on to a weapon in case someone overtakes me).

So where's this Sony blog mentioned?


Sony has been relatively quiet, save a price-drop sort-of-denial, but after last year's conference concluded on price points that won it no end of trouble, we'd be surprised to see thematic mistakes replicated in its 2007 execution. The company's recent decision to launch a US blog to discuss things directly with its customers seems to support that theory.

I recall someone coming onto our Return to Castle Wolfenstein clan forums to bang the drum about their "play to win cash" system.

It's fairly easy to decide whether this is for you or not. You try the game for free. If you can consistently get a kill ratio above 1 (more frags then deaths) go for it. If you get killed more than you kill others stay away.

Easy peasy.

I'd be worried about cheating no matter what they say about detection algorithms and such.
