so much micromanagement jesus christ I am not got at micromanagement send help.
Hello! May I suggest Men of War for your next RTS indulgence?
Hello! May I also suggest Men of War Assault Squad 2? I will play with anyone who'd like to play. It's co-op and PVP
Looks at steam page.
Well, that's something i have never seen before. Also, tanks have HP now? WTF?
Speaking of, what's up with the friggin' Fox Hunt campaign(in original)? It's so busted, i don't have any idea what they were thinking, or what i was supposed to think.

Uh, what? Which game are you talking about? In Men of War Assault Squad 2 tanks don't have HP, but they can be disabled and the crew can be killed.

Whoops, mixed up with this one. For some reason, it goes first in google for me.

Again, we were meant to scout out the place, bribe the right people, get intel, sneak in, sneak out. We are currently somewhere beneath the crater, fumbling for gasmasks

Oh god, that's horrible. I didn't even know this came out. Yeah that game is not representative of the series IMO

Receiver, the game that's less of a game and more of a manual reloading/instant death simulator, just got an update... after what, six years?

Just tried it, runs a lot smoother. Had a problem with fine aiming, which has been reported by others as well, but I was able to remedy it with some adjustments to mouse sensitivity.

I have a soft spot for this one old-as-shit MMO, RPG World Online. Turns out the guy has not been idle over the past decade. His new game is Guild Vale.

Can't vouch for its quality but I'll assume it's as grindy and addictive and fugly as his first several games.

Destiny or Fate... a deck builder that combines a mishmash of features, and pulls it off in an intriguing fashion. Seen better, seen a lot worse. Has potential.

A. Seems neat.

B. Watching people play it is apparently mildly infuriating. It took like one or two fights of observation to realize play order is like super important and six or seven more the folks I scoped were still basically friggin' ignoring it. *vaguely insulting muttering noises*

It is... the tutorial is basically UI and combo, because that's really the only thing that matters. Particularly if they play with the girl who has a wolf: One of her specials allows you to Chain(stun) an enemy, so triggering her as much as possible is a good way to succeed.

My team that was stomping everything was composed of stage 1 elites-- when upgraded, they give the combined passive of +4 cards on your first turn, -1 cost to all cards on the first turn (or maybe just initial draw). Combo that with cards that draw additional cards, cards that have a chance of drawing free cards, the ability to inflict Chain, one that does 7 damage per card in your hand to the entire enemy party, and pretty much everything falls to pieces.

Except that one battle that consistently does me in and killed me in two turns.

Eh, not sure if I should necro the Pet Peeves thread or toss it here, but whatever:

Why oh why is it so rare to find a console->PC port (or, worse yet, cross-release) that has controls that actually make sense for KB/M?

Take you, Mistover. (Or anything by NIS.)

It's like Darkest Dungeon (down to the art style, albeit it a cute anime version) meets Mystery Dungeon (or roguelikes in general, if you're unfamiliar with the franchise), with 3x3 grid combat encounters. Sure, sounds good to me.

But why on earth do your controls have to be just that plain annoying?

Has anyone tried Untitled Goose Game yet?

You're a goose, and your goal is to annoy people until they put up a "No geese" sign. IT looks potentially entertaining, and also potentially gets old quickly. If it doesn't do that second thing, I'm in.

If it was made for console first, it was made and optimized to fit specific hardware, and put no effort into any other hardware. At the point where they're porting it, they probably aren't putting as much time and effort in (the main devs may have moved on). So they don't put in the effort and code (with associated prior-optimized code removal and bug-fixing) to do the port properly. It's easy to comment out some code so it never gets used, creating code whole cloth is not the same.

At this point it might be easier to get a gamepad for your pc.

Rails Across America is a good and underrated game from about 2000. It's like Railroad Tycoon, but for me somehow more fun to play. You can play a complete game from 1829 to 2020-30 if one so desires. As always, the main issue is running it on a new system.

I've seen a couple of playthroughs of it.  It's on the short side, at about 2-3 hours for the main quest and then maybe a couple more for the optional stuff.  There isn't much replay value after that.

It's the kind of game made for streamers to show off goofy stuff to their audience.  You could suffice with watching one or two youtube videos on it if you don't want to spend the money.

Uhm... Could you fix the quote tag suggesting that the review/comment on that goose game is from me?

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones -- it's like an indie Fallout in Lovecraft-land.

...And elsewhere, there's the commonly used combo of x+esc... and it can't REALLY be rebound, since you're still tied to controller inputs, so changing v or esc changes everything else tied to them.  :'(
