Is the pc version of Motorsport manager significantly different from iOS? 34.99 seems steep compared to 4 bucks or whatever the mobile price is.

Looks like the mobile version is just dots moving around a track. The PC version is completely 3D with all the cars modeled. What all can you do in the mobile version? Can you make setups, design new parts and build up your HQ?

I got this game for free on xbox but that thread is mostly just playstation people making GBS threads on the xbox. Anyway, I got slime rancher. What I'm wondering is, is there a point in playing it? Does anything happen? Is there a story? It seems to just dump me into a quick tutorial and then the full game. I go through the gameplay loop, I collect some slimes, feed them, collect their plorts, sell those, use the money to buy new corrals to collect new slimes. Is that the whole game? It had been on my steam wishlist for a while and I was glad to see I could get it for free but now i'm kind of glad I never actually bought it. If the gameplay never expands, and there's no story or goal, I don't really see the point of playing it anymore.

I finished The Witness today. I cheated on a few puzzles because if I don't figure it out after a few minutes, I'd rather just move on with the game. Sometimes I just don't have the time, especially when the puzzles in a series sometimes go up and down in difficulty. Though I did have to use a puzzle type guide all the time because I'd forget what each symbol means between sessions.. All in all, I really enjoyed the game. The puzzles were fun and the game is very beautiful. I'm not entirely sure if it had a story. I got some kind of meaning out of the ending, but I didn't understand the optional bits. Like why am I watching a video of a guy trying to carry a candle across a windy ruin? I'll have to go back and look for the rest of the environmental puzzles and some of the other optional bits.

Valve doesn't want "fake games" on Steam that exist purely to make money off cards.

Yes, Valve makes money off Steam Market sales, but it certainly doesn't help public opinion among people that think there's too much poo poo on Steam.

Why are people buying cards for fake games? This doesn't make any sense to me. Developers make fake games, put them on Steam, bots idle these games to get cards, and the cards are sold on the market. But who are the buyers? Why do they want these cards?

Ultimate General: Civil War

Adding on to this. Skirmishers can do a lot from cover. If you hover over some ground that has cover on it, like trees or houses, a tool tip will pop up saying how much cover it has. Skirmishers in a forest with 100% cover will wreck shop on anyone who tries to get past them. I forget which battle it was, but I had to defend these two hills. I noticed that where the other side was coming from, they had to cross a river into some trees on my side. River = they move very slowly. Trees = my guys are in excellent cover and can shoot at the people in the river. I set up my brigades on the hills and had them all detach skirmishers off to those trees. I figured the skirmishers would hold them off for a bit until they had to fall back to the main defensive line. Instead, they held off the confederates for the entire first day. It wasn't until the second day that I finally had to have them fall back as the confederates had brought in so many more men. Even then, I would have them fall back to the top of a hill, hold that, and then fall back to even more trees, and they stayed there for the rest of the second day. The third day, they finally had to rejoin my brigades as the confederates had finally pushed that far in.

That brings me to my next point. If you are defending, set up your lines way out in front. Your brigades will be routed eventually and if they get stressed too much, they'll go walkabout before you can get back control of them and bring them back. By then, the rest of your line might be pushed back. This made me almost fail the first Union battle. I just set up inside the town, and eventually was pushed all the way out of it. I then had to fight my way back in and capture it.

Speaking of routing, like Gort says, have an extra brigade or some skirmishers sitting back in reserve. If a brigade gets routed, move the reserve up to fill in the hole until the routed brigade gets sorted. If you notice a brigade is getting stressed, consider having them fall back and then move in reserves. Take a brigade that isn't being hammered, replace them with a battle weary brigade and then bring the fresh one into the fight. This is better since they added in oblique movements. Brigades will no longer get themselves flanked while moving about. They will instead move sideways or diagonally to make sure they face the enemy while repositioning. There are UI buttons for this, but make sure you are using F to fall back and space to stop. If the enemy is getting too close, I'll select my whole line and have them fall back a bit and then halt. And don't be afraid to pause to see how things are going and issue new orders.

I'm not usually one for RTS' but I am loving this game. it seems like it would be overwhelming because you can have so many units on screen, but you can always just pause and collect your thoughts. Since everyone moves at walking speed, it's kind of slow paced and most of the time you're just watching your units exchange volleys while looking for a chance to flank or watching for the enemy to make a move. I haven't quite grasped cavalry yet, so I don't really use it. I mostly use them for baiting artillery and other brigades. Force them to reposition to take some heat off my brigades.

I think I am going to have to buy Prey. I was wary of it because it looked like generic alien shooter. After seeing people on Giant Bomb praise it and seeing the praise here, I checked out the demo. I love exploring things, collecting, and figuring out mysteries. I think I'm going to like the rest.

The game was fun for a while, but then I realized I was doing the same crap over and over again. kidnap a guy, add him to my crew. Steal some equipment, kill everyone else. Once I got bored of that, I realized the story was boring as gently caress, annoyingly weird and I didn't care about it at all. If I didn't know about the normal gameplay, i would have turned it off when that flying whale showed up.

I'll maintain that I really enjoyed it and I didn't have an issue with the plot not being weird; the big boss stuff was always more "serious" in tone than snake's adventures.

I wouldn't have minded the weird plot, but whenever those necromongers showed up, it pissed me off. I'd be having fun loving around in the 80s, and then annoyingly hard to fight magic men show up and it just pisses me off.

Did he have this planned out years ago? Or did he just recently write this? The fact that Valve never finished that story is really annoying. I know it's played out to wish for HL3, but the argument that no one wants single player shooters anymore is just wrong. Doom and Prey are prime examples of single player shooters that people love. But I guess Valve doesn't make games anymore.

Probably because no one knew it was even coming out. I had no idea until Giant Bomb posted quicklook of it. Most people I've seen who have played it have enjoyed it. I'd say it did decently well for zero advertising and people either having never heard of it or assuming it was a remaster of the original Prey. Half Life 3 wouldn't have to be some AAA masterpiece. Just finish the story, and make it look decent. Just the fact that it's Half Life 3 would make it sell well by default.

Due to the draconian rules for loose files on the playstation, they have to force everyone to download all the files as part of the main game. Then you have to pay to unlock the files you were forced to download. Then Bethesda got lazy and decided to do exactly the same thing on PC. So you are forced to download all of the creation club files whether you want them or not.

I just finished The Talos Principle. I'm not sure what came over me to suddenly finish all these games I've had in my backlog but I am, so whatever. During some steam sale, it was between this game and The Witness. I originally chose The Talos Principle because it was cheaper and The Witness was still full price or some low sale percentage that didn't seem worth it at the time. I played it for about 20 minutes and then abandoned it, either because I was thinking about refunding, or I was just quickly trying out all the games I had bought. Since then, I bought The Witness and completed the main "story" of it. Anyway, I loaded up the Talos Principle again and really liked it. I was getting frustrated at times with the narrative because this game goes really far up its own rear end. Ignoring all the religious overtones, I really loved all the puzzles. The puzzles in The Witness were pretty good, but it was based entirely on memorizing a whole bunch of rulesets and applying them to whatever combination was in that puzzle. There were certain types of puzzles where I would get annoyed and just look up pictures of the solution so I could just move on. In The Talos Principle, you can't really do that, you would have to watch a video of someone beating it. Luckily I was able to figure almost all of them out on my own. There were a few where I'd look up how someone solved it to a point where they reminded me of a mechanic I had forgotten about, and then finish it on my own. There were only 1 or 2 where I had to look up how to do it because my brain was fried.

I like them both but if I could have a game as beautiful and hands off story wise as The Witness with the puzzles from The Talos Principle, that would probably be a perfect puzzle game.

When Rockstar announced they were rereleasing LA Noire, I decided to check it out since I liked it years ago and got it on steam at some point. I really hope they update the game to support 60 fps, because the game is locked to 30 because of the animations.

I'm really enjoying the investigating and driving and solving street crimes. The interrogation is terrible though. Usually I can tell if the person is hiding something, but the trouble is figuring out whether I should use lie or force. Sometimes I think I have them in a lie but then Cole goes nuts and accuses them of something random, and I obviously have no proof of whatever the hell Cole just said.

I started using a guide for the conversations because it's just bullshit and there's no restore checkpoint option. So I either gently caress up the conversation or start the whole case over. I already played through the game making mistakes once, so I don't care about cheating or whatever. Especially when I look at the guide and have no idea why it wants me to pick lie. There was one interrogation where I had no idea why it was a lie. What the guy said initially didn't seem to contradict my evidence. I pick lie and then Cole accuses him of being a pedophile, and then I was able to make the connection. I guess I could have made that connection if I had done the other part of the case first, but that was weird.

The overall concept is easy to understand. If they look like they are telling the truth, you pick truth. If they look like they are lying and you have proof, you pick lie. If they look like they are lying but you don't have proof, you pick doubt (which is really force). My problem is that picking doubt shouldn't fail that question if there is evidence. I should be able to come back with evidence and question them again. A lie is still a lie. There should be a tell that gives me a hint that some of my evidence proves them wrong, or even let me figure it out later and come back. That just seems stupid that if I get the answer wrong, they win. Cop shows always have the detective get it wrong, find more evidence and take a second crack at the suspect. Imagine law and order where the suspect gets away with it because the detective didn't find some evidence yet and he was never allowed to question the guy about the knife ever again.

I'm liking the game more now that I was reminded that Lie = see if cole brings up that I have evidence to the contrary. Also, that if I goof something up, I can just quit and then resume and that loads from the last checkpoint. They really need to update the game with a "restore last checkpoint" option in the menu, but this seems to work. It usually loads back to just before whatever interview you were doing, but one time it started me all the way at the beginning of looking for clues.
