I watched Real Steel. I was expecting a shitty action movie, but what I got was neither an action movie or shitty. It was hardly a masterpiece for the ages but it actually made a single tear run down my cheek at one point, so was at least competent in what it tried to achieve. Might've been the rum, too.

I had a very hard time accepting that it took place in 2020.

Before that I watched Frogs. It was so fucking bad that it was good. But seriously, it was bad.

I really, really enjoyed the mod. Found it a unique middle-ground between brutally realistic and still accessible to the average gamer who might not enjoy such realism. After all, how many times do we repeat that "real life is not fun" when people make complaints about game mechanics not being "realistic"?

This is good news, had no idea you were involved in this. Cool stuff bro!

It's definitely not for everyone, and it's another game that's all about the multiplayer. Just like most shooters coming out, if you buy it to play singleplayer, you did it wrong. It's the best in the series from that perspective, but it's the best of a mediocre series, so take it as it is.

Yeah! I also love how potions are "flasks" and just get emptied, then fill up slowly as you kill. Genius take on D2's "magazine-belt" of potions. Love it.

What's your account? I've got a BF3 showmatch in an hour so I can't play until after then but I'll play some with you. You'll probably be ahead of me by then though, IDK how that works yet.

It's what Diablo 3 should have been. It's almost depressing. I don't even know where to begin really. Here's the skill tree:

This is an online game too btw guys, no single player. My favorite change is probably how they do hardcore. When your HC toon dies, instead of being erased, he just gets moved to softcore. They eliminated the one thing that turns players off of what makes the game so much better. Now the incentive not to die is essentially just bragging rights of still being in the Hardcore League. All the tension and reward is there, without the punishment. It's quite smart.

The beta's open just go play it lol. If you liked Diablo 2 you'll like this.

No, the most recent one was pretty obviously Crollo. It happened a couple days after he disappeared suddenly. Hadn't happened in a long time and hasn't happened since. And he's back some months later, but using a different name? For no reason at all? Sure. Whatever.

Pretty damn coincidental if you ask me.

That's actually a pretty cool effect. Some minor tweaking to make it believeable, like others have said, would be good though. While it's admirable you're willing to scrap your own ideas for the good of the map, I'd like to see you polish the effect rather than scrap it. Cool effect anyways.

The map's looking good too, you improve pretty consistently. I still think those corner brick models look very out of place considering they are on nearly every corner of every building regardless of what that building is textured with. Minor detail, but I can't unsee it.

Yeah I agree. It seems like when WarZ got announced. Even though I like the original game, I'll play whichever ends up being better. It's just more likely that it will be the original.

The second point I cannot argue against. The first point seems like "at least it isn't admitting it's attempting to rip off Minecraft!" which I don't get. I'd prefer that it just admit it. If it ends up being a better game, then great. We'll all have a better game.

edit: oh, i read that wrong. It's openly admitting to being inspired by Minecraft? Thats a step above admitting nothing at all but a step behind admitting that it's a clear rip-off. It looks identical.

I'll keep an eye on it, but I predict that it will fade out pretty quickly considering the rate that Minecraft continues to release updates at. It's tough to compete with mountains of money.

That looks exactly like Minecraft. The UI is even identical, except for lacking experience and hunger bars.

In Now Gaming news, I'm thinking of playing Spec Ops: The Line since Yahtzee gave it his game of 2012 pick. He picked a modern-themed shooter as best game of 2012. Didn't expect that at all, holy crap.

You know what would be a funny experiment? A "Mapping Only Week" on TWHL.

With the exception of the shoutbox, Now Playing and Now Gaming threads, any discussion on this mapping site that is not directly related to mapping by any user results in that user being banned for the rest of Mapping Only Week.

Random political or nationalistic thread? Ban for the rest of the week. Random journal about something you saw in the news? Ban for the rest of the week.

Granted this experiment would take a lot of moderation and its not fair to ask our two active mods to do extra work, but its a fun idea.

My prediction is that the WIP thread and the current compo thread would rule the front page all week, with the exception of a few good "i've got a problem" threads.

At the very least it would be quite funny. We'd probably all get banned.

Yes Grim. That is part of why so many TWHL veterans have left. The other part is that they simply have either grown bored of mapping after so many years, or don't have the time to lately due to work, getting married, etc etc. That, however, should not be and is not enough to cause a person to leave a community. There's much more to it. The fact that a few still very actively mapping older members barely show up at all, despite not "officially" leaving, is testament to that.

I, like Grim, hope that when the new engine launches we see a bit of life breathed into the site and see a few older members make returns. At the pace we're going I can't really see that happening though.

tl;dr ban people for offensive comments/post which contribute nothing to the site/mapping.

Part of me wants to beg you not to leave. Part of me has seen many, many veterans leave but still keep in touch with me regularly and is not worried about losing touch. Many I talk to every day.

Maybe it's my own absurd stubbornness that has caused me not to leave with the others. If you change your mind, and I hope you do, I'll be glad.

If you don't, that's fine too. It's your decision. I'm going to send you an IRC channel on steam where you can hop in every once in a while to shoot the shit with some of us. You can share it with Archie too.

Ninja that looks really good for a learning thing. I couldn't tell my butt from my face when I tried blender. You should keep at it because that's pretty good.

Have you made any single models, like props for source maps yet? You should try that if you haven't. I bet you'd be good at it.

Oh, and Habboi, that looks fucking awesome. TONS of improvement from last time we saw it, where it already looked awesome. Good idea on simply tethering that stack of pipes together, I remember that being discussed. Much better and more simple solution that any of us suggested.

Yeah I tried to tweak it. Every time I launched the game it would reset though. After doing this every time I went to play I just gave up.

At the time I was still on a 16:10 monitor so it'd actually be 65 horizontal, which is still a bit low. I play my comp BF3 matches with about 85 so maybe I was talking out my ass when I said I can handle 70.
Posted 7 years ago2012-12-23 23:20:47 UTC
in Now Gaming: ... Post #311831
I understand that it makes the game look more realistic, and I can play 70 and above. I'd be able to tolerate 45 for a really good single player game if it didn't make me physically ill. I really hope the new Metro game has an FOV slider.

I enjoyed the little I played of it, but the locked FOV of around 45 or whatever it is made me sick to my stomach after 30 mins or so. Really put a damper on it.

in Complete bullshit new law passed in US Post #311768
I don't see why the argument over gun laws always has to be two extremes, guns and no guns
Yes. That is the US gun control argument by people who don't live in the US and have no idea what they're talking about. It's either "no guns" or "guns".

Everyone in the US knows that there are more guns than there are people, and just a little more than half are actually legal and registered, and that removing guns from the US is logistically impossible. We know this entire debate is completely and utterly pointless.

Quite frankly I'm disgusted whenever something like the Sandy Hook shootings, or Virginia Tech, or Columbine happens and people are so quick to use it to support their own political or sociological ideals or arguments.

No one was talking about how much of a problem guns are a week before 20 children died. No one here was debating gun control in the US the day, week, or month before the shooting. The day after, everyone can't shut up about how their own political stance would have stopped this. It's like people wait for this sort of thing to happen just so their opinions can be justified. It's absurd.

in Complete bullshit new law passed in US Post #311763
Six out of fifty states in the US allow teachers to conceal firearms in order to defend students, as absurdly rare as that situation is, under several conditions:

1: They must buy a licence, not just a gun licence, a licence to carry a firearm on school grounds, which is normally so fucking illegal that it's not even funny. Children have been expelled(not suspended, expelled) from school for unknowingly having a single bullet in their jacket pocket leftover from their last family hunting trip, in my own home town.

2: They need to attend a very lengthy training course on indoor, tactical firearm usage.

3: They need to use ammunition specifically designed not to pierce targets, or ricochet off surfaces. The ammo disintegrates upon impact.

4: The district(not school, not town, district.) needs to give the specific teacher a written letter of permission, which the teacher must apply for.

To put all of this into perspective, the requirements for being an armed security guard(which lots of people are suggesting large schools have an armed security guard at the door) are not even fucking close to this.
