Thread six gamers: 4 (The Just thread)

The obligatory copy and paste of the previous op:

Corrian wrote:
Wisconsin9 wrote:One plus one equals two. One plus two equals two. Two plus two equals two. There is nothing higher than two here, violators will be shot.

Original thread here, second one made by The Corparation here.

The people have spoken and it looks like I'm the OP for this installment of the Thread for Gamers. How did this happen? I didn't even want the job. Well, whatever, five hundred pages and I can shove it off on someone else and go retire to some beach down south and I'm rambling now aren't I?

So, NSG, once again the question is asked: how do you game? Console, PC, phone, arcade? Pinball? Pencil and paper? Board? We don't judge here, except for the utterly ridiculous amount of judging everybody does all the time. Don't lie, we all know it's true.

Anyways, I personally like PC gaming, although due to technical limitations and lack of a budget to upgrade I've mostly been stuck playing GTA V on my PS3. Also have a Wii but I haven't used it in Jesus Christ I don't even remember how long.

And with that, welcome to the latest incarnation of the Thread For Gamers! Have fun, try not to get banned, and remember that two plus two equals two!


Just one more addition. Please keep civil, abide by the forum rules, and most importantly, enjoy yourself!


Now, as was set down by all the laws of Westeros The Gaming thread and of NationsStates I have taken the mantle of OP from Good King Corrian. It was a long and arduous affair but a just one none the less, for now I am the rightful King and lord of this realm and all its citizens, be they Consolites, PCers, denizens of the Nintendo Hold or what ever.

All will bend the knee and submit to my authority, or I will destroy them as I crushed the upstart usurpers that opposed my claim, you know who you are...

Remember to have fun, be civil with each other, yes discuss if one platform/genre/what ever is superior to another one, just dont be a dick about it and respect other peoples preferences and what not okay? Or ill send you to the wall or mount your head on a pike outside the throne room. Now off you go and discuss game related things in this, the fifth (and just) incarnation of the gaming thread.

also behold stannis, and stannis with more stannis

edit: Here is also a depository of other gaming threads for specific games or franchises that games based upon them: (Thank you Lysset, for the idea)

Well this oughtta be a fun thread.

Anyway, an entry I saw on the TV Tropes page for the original X-COM.

Deconstruction: Of children's cartoon series such as G.I. Joe and Transformers. X-COM is a team of elite soldiers who wear cool-looking armor and have a fancy Cool Ship that they travel the world in to save the world from goofy-looking aliens... and then suffer a relentlessly high fatality rate, crippling technological inferiority, and severe funding troubles. Anyone Can Die, often in rather brutal ways, and 50% or higher casualty rates are common in successful missions, with failures usually resulting in no survivors whatsoever. The cool-looking armor is good for little else besides appearance. The Cool Ship costs ludicrous amount of money to lease and is completely unarmed. The goofy-looking aliens outnumber us over a thousand to one and have technology that outstrips ours to such a degree that X-COM might as well be fighting them with sticks. The Man in Washington will happily cut funding at the drop of a hat, even if there's a UFO landing outside the White House. It is not a very pleasant situation.

Anyone play the Elder Scrolls Online?
What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive? Or if during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

After these images things went amazing relatively quickly. Mission Commander Jedidiah reported massive spikes in engine temperature over the next ten seconds. At approximately T + 16 seconds The 99 Boosters spacecraft suffered a critical multiengine failure. Several key engines overheated and exploded. The explosion of those engines led to the separation of around 2/3s of the remaining engines, which spiraled off and exploded gloriously. After this event around 20 SRBs remained, all of which still provided full thrust. At T + 31 Seconds atmospheric heating effects took hold, this could have been fatal if Deadly Reentry was currently enabled. It was not and thus the spacecraft continued on though the light show until the engines burned out around T + 35 seconds, after which the crew capsule separated and entered a suborbital trajectory, after which the capsule parachuted safely to the ground. Mission was deemed highly successful

HOLY SHIT.

LYCAN MEGACARRY COMMEND PLEASE GGWP WTF SWAAAAAG NOSCOPED.


21 3 8 final score bitches! 554GPM average, 667XPM average.

I CARRIED MY TEAM SO HARD OMG.

We started out so far behind. We were 8 - 1 in kills, with 1 dc. Then I got my ult and stopped my teammates from dying by killing everybody. Then our dc reconnected. #Score.

Our first row of towers was entirely destroyed, and our 2nd middle tower was as well. Then I started pushing.

Get my wolves up, shapeshift and HOLY SHIT THOSE TOWERS WENT DOWN SOOOOOO FAST.

Then our other 2nd row towers went down. Got a bunch more kills teamfighting at mid. Of course, every time I encountered a solo hero I killed them, unless I was too low.

Then I pushed 3 towers in a row (The enemy's last 2nd row tower, and their middle and bottom 2nd row towers). Then I got their 3rd row top tower to a sliver of health. Gj. All the while getting more kills. Then, I had to run away to base because otherwise I would die (Or did I die? I don't even remember right now.) I respawn, push the last two towers right in front of their ancient. Our creeps were busy fighting their creeps. No problem :P. I have Assault Cuirass, Skull Basher, Desolator, Boots of Travel, Vladimir's Mask, Necromicon. I just get up my illusions, my wolves and shapeshift, press w and focus all of my attack on the ancient. It went down from full to 0 in less than 5 seconds.

I could've built the basher into an Abyssal Blade too, as I had the gold but I decided not to.

Moar boosters.

I created a rocket using your suggestions. Here it is in flight (I forgot to take a screenshot on the landing pad). Here's a view from above. It initially did quite well, rising very quickly and hitting reentry velocity near the end. Here it is with the reentry effects on it. Unfortunately, something went wrong with the decoupler. I think the separation of the first stage tore off some of the fuel tanks and engines from the second, making it unbalanced. I had thought ahead, though, and I had put five parachutes on the thing in order to preserve all of the science (which wasn't much, to be honest). The final result was this.
If you come into contact with the Shining Trapezohedron, please bring it to me. Or just look into it. Either one is fine.
