Yes, I saw the movie and read the book. The creator of the movie was hired by Games Workshop to take over another animation project - I'm pretty sure that it's the Blood Angels one.sorry bro, but Astartes is shit.
Astartes is like entry level warhammer stuff, just flashy graphics, and a bit of action based shennanigans, to entertain the plebs.
You want a real deep dive into the warhammer 40k Universe. watch the 2H 30m long movie "Helsreach" produced by Richard Boylan, and Aaron Demski Bowden. (Black library author)
Helsreach is free btw, to no fucking around to be able to find, and watch it.
Imo, Helsreach is one of the best movies released. idk since forever.
Do you know about the pause trick?Plus I really do want you to publicly play Megaman 1 because you need to understand that this game is literally impossible. If someone locked you in a room with only that game and said "you have one year to learn how to beat this game without using a continue or we will kill you," you still wouldn't be able to do it. And I don't mean you personally, I mean you as in everyone on earth. I don't think anyone has ever beaten this game.
I still have to original tabletop in my apartment closet, sadly the figures are completely butchered by abysmal painting...ofc that wasn't me 😂
You can skip through that video and just see that this game is awesome. By the way you can change the race of your characters and this guy is a total CUCK using POC women characters.
The problem is that on launch a few months ago, the AI was completely broken to the point that the game was unplayable. The AI was like, walking into a corner and refusing to attack anyone. Pacifist AI.
Has anyone played this in the last month or so? They said they were going to fix the AI, and I keep reading the Steam reviews and people are saying it's better but it's not totally clear.
I don't really need to play this for another few months, because I bought Phoenix Point which is the same kind of game and is going to take me several months to get through, given my life schedule. But I'm still really excited about Necromunda.
That's nothing. Try chaos gate. Now that's retardproof, because you either replay the whole mission if you're unhappy with how it went, or live with having permanently lost squadmembers. That's right. No building and no reinforcing in battle like these new games 😂I haven't heard many good things about it, and unfortunately it seems to suffer the Warhammer curse, in that there's a 90% chance the game will end up being DLC bloated shit. I read one review at least that locks having an extra person in your squad behind a paid DLC.
Another game made by the same devs is Mordheim, which is like a grimdark version of Valkyria Chronicles. I can completely recommend that on sale (this last sale it was like 3.50?) with the disclaimer that it's not for everyone, hard as piss, and completely bullshit at times. The chance to hit in that game (possibly Necromunda) makes playing XCOM seem fair and balanced.
Man, you are so great.As someone who plays zero vidya (to my great shame) I want to commend your writing on this specific subject. Doing these posts is great because of the way it is apolitical, and yet remains very engaging, even though I know literally nothing about the games or experiences you're describing. A few weeks ago when you were writing about cyberpunk you mentioned something I ran out of time to reply, but it was gold, about how looking down one's nose at video games is itself utterly pleb. It made so much sense and I wanted to break it down more but now I don't know where it is.
All great writing is born out of the author's passion for the subject. When that is strong enough, it can transcend even pure ignorance and inspire curiosity, admiration and even action in the reader. What makes writing an inherently male activity is this--it allows the writer to compartmentalize questions about personal opinion, emotions, ego--in other words bracketing female concerns--and frees the author to explore a subject in a mode roughly near objectivity. I realize men have biases of our own, and that no writing lacks a personal point of view. Striving for that would be sterile and ugly--like how most marketing copy today is written. What I'm talking about here is taking a subject seriously as a subject; giving it credit for deserving attention, study and the potential for pointing to inferences about life and reality in general.
Your writing achieves this on a regular basis and I think it's organic--which is just a synonym for authentic, or what Nietzsche would call life-giving. You start out with some modest proposal--"This is a pretty good game"--proceed to describe a few features--include a few personal responses here and there when they fit in--and invite response from friends. Eventually, the precious metals of inner thought are revealed as 'iron sharpens iron'--and you drop a great joke:
LOL! John Updike once described authorhood as a vast act of passive aggression. I disagree. Real writing is extremely pro-social, because a man who is confident in his beliefs is eager, not only to share those beliefs, but also to have them challenged, if that challenge is couched in terms of charity.
Updike's comment was typical liberal fagspeak. If you ever heard him speak in public, which I did, you'll understand why he thought writing was passive-aggressive: because he was an awkward nerd who also had a pretty good prose style. The combo caused him to be massively anti-social in his development, and to become a great writer who was ultimately self-loathing. This is the psychosis of the liberal female mind.
Sir, we do not allow discussion of cheating at video games on this site. I suggest you take this information to 8kun or the Al-Nusra forums.Do you know about the pause trick?
Are you referring to War of the Chosen? It is not so much an expansion pack but rather the finished game... XCOM 2 is the beta version with most of the content missing and shitty performance issues. WotC fixes all that, seriously vanilla XCOM 2 feels sterile in comparison.I've heard one of the Xcom 2 expansions has a much better story. I also own that but haven't played it.
