Re: Star Citizen

One of the issues you might be facing is due to having a large cluster of players spawn in, and then proceed to spawn their biggest shiny ship right on the doorstep of your little cabin which will eat your system resources. I'd suggest trying to get in a ship, fly it well away from the spawn and the...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

An important thing to note is that it handles like a 6DoF shooter, very similar in controls to Freelancer I guess (kb/m are best). It is not what you'd really call a traditional space sim type game in any sense of the control scheme. Some people like to draw parallels of the map to FTL, except it se...

If you manage to get into some of the later stages in Everspace, I'd recommend having sunglasses handy.

Heart of Thorns goes on 50% sale occasionally. I found the HoT content to be far more engaging than the original, particularly in the story execution and delivery. Just generally better overall. Everspace dropped the 0.4 etc patch; Moved the front shield generator over to the Gunship, which is overk...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Yeah I didn't realise it would take me so long to get any sort of supply income happening and foolishly went for the AWC first. I'm kinda finding the game overly tedious compared to the base game, playing ironman probably isn't helping. Also missions with a 1d available infiltration time I've been j...

I'm done with Long War 2. I don't know who they designed this mod for, it's ridiculous.

Even if true, I feel the level of success would depend on what degree of agency they have to mess around with the established fallout 4 formula.

Re: Diablo III

The first few floors + Leoric's tomb are great for stringing together 100+ killstreaks if you are after some relatively easy experience boosts. Just be aware that one of the enemies can nullify all of your healing.

Re: Factorio

Should be easier without the nightmare that was balancing barrelling/unbarrelling on trains.

Yeah running things over in tanks can be easy, just remember to disable your personal roboport otherwise you'll lose all your bots when they attempt to repair the tank in the middle of a nest.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

It took me 3 attempts on hard. However by that point I'd already earned quite a lot of credits playing through the normal (only) difficulty at the time so already had finished the weapons, shields and energy upgrades. Only now working on the hull and speed upgrades. I really wasn't prepared to be ch...

Very nice work mate! That must have been on an earlier build before the game had the three difficulty levels (not to diminish what you did, that really is freakishly good). Try it again on Normal or Hard and see how it compares? I'm on my 20th life and have only just hit Sector 4 (admittedly I'm ex...

I've generally found Everspace to be quite easy, managed to finish it on my second attempt. Glad they included a harder mode recently.

Re: Star Citizen

Was there not previously an issue preventing remote management and control of turrets due to the engine's handling of picture in picture/multiple view points (not sure what its called)? Or has a work around been discovered?
