  [PC] Hawken
Posted by: AdminGG - 02-03-2014, 05:36 PM - Forum: General Game Discussion - Replies (8)


Hawken goes free-to-play March 7th!

Hawken (Offical site) is a (soon to be) Free-to-play (with micro transactions) Mech FPS that has just landed on Steam.

It is developer by a company called Adhesive Games, and uses the Unreal 3 engine. It's very heavily support by Nvidia, so if you have a Nvidia card then this game is going to run very well and has been optimized to get the most out of whatever Nvidia card you might have.

For example I have a Nvidia 540m in my Laptop, which is an extremely average card at this point in time. Yet the game runs incredibly smoothly while still looking pretty decent on medium everything.

Currently it is early access, meaning they want to try get some money out you before it goes completely Free-to-play like it once was. There is currently 2 bundles available to buy on Steam that give you early access to the game:

HAWKEN - Nemesis Bundle
HAWKEN - Prosk Starter Bundle

The Nemesis Bundle is $30 (35 NZD) and the newly added Prosk Starter Bundle is $10 ($12 NZD).

Due to the games micro transactions model, you have to pay to purchase addition Mechs, weapons, items, and aesthetic related gear. These bundles will save you money in the long run if you want to get a bunch of Mechs and weapons now. I believe the stock stand Free-to-play game itself only gives you 1-2 Mechs. However these bundles include a wide varity of the Mechs, including weapons and credits to spend in-game.

I myself just purchased the Prosk Starter Bundle, which gives you access to 3 addition Mechs to start with:
  • Vanguard - Close range tank Mech with high defense
  • Infiltrator - Close to medium range stealth Mech
  • Sharpshooter - Long to medium range sniper Mech

I am loving the Vanguard and Sharpshooter so far, so here is some screenshots of my beauties:



Once this game goes completely Free-to-play it has to feature in one of our upcoming Fisticuffs sessions!

Check out the trailer!

  Civilization V
Posted by: Jargonion - 01-03-2014, 02:53 PM - Forum: General Game Discussion - Replies (6)

Which victory type is your favourite to shoot for?
What's your policy on city states?
Will the Shoshone ever not come last in a game?

Let's talk Civ V here.

I'm a massive Science whore, but am useless at the game. Even when I play as Babylon or Korea, my science output is completely stunted. So, I'm learning to play culturally.

  New DOOM beta announced
Posted by: SPIGOT THE BEAR - 21-02-2014, 12:49 PM - Forum: General Game Discussion - Replies (14)

About fucking time. Nowhere as anticipated as the next Half Life, but it's always been something that's stayed in the back of my mind and has been stuck in development for far too long.

  Titanfall "Prestige" mode
Posted by: Kesh on Hend - 21-02-2014, 05:38 AM - Forum: General Game Discussion - Replies (1)

Here is some information about Titanfall's "prestige" system. Prestiging in the game is regarded as 'Regenerating'.

Max level is set to 14 in the beta files. However if we go by the level progression unlocks (last item is at level 49), Level 50 being max is likely.
There are 10 generation ranks. I believe generation 1 is what you start the game with.
Here is some of the menu text taken from the beta:

Quote:Take me to generation [next level].

Warning! You will lose all that you have unlocked and be reset to level 1. All challenges will be reset.

Years of battle have taken their toll. We can regenerate you... at a cost.
Your body can be restored. But your memory and your experience...all will be lost.
When you awaken you will respawn a [next level] generation Pilot.
You will be better, sharper, acquiring experience even faster than before.

Are you sure?
I'm sure

Are you really sure?
Yes positive!

Would you like to go to the next gen?
Take me to next gen!

Generation numerics:


While I'm all for incentives for continued play, I don't like how lots of online games feel obligated to include a "prestige" mode.

  The Walking Dead Season 2
Posted by: Kesh on Hend - 21-02-2014, 05:10 AM - Forum: General Game Discussion - No Replies

@telltalegames Just posted a couple screens of Episode 2 - A House Divided along with an "Early March" release.

If I were running TTG, I wouldn't even release Episode 1 until all 5 are finished. So that episode could be released on a weekly basis so people don't have to wait months for ~2 hours of content.

  Twitch Plays Pokemon (place your completion bets)
Posted by: e_e li__s - 20-02-2014, 01:59 PM - Forum: General Game Discussion - Replies (17)

Live update

Watch live video from twitchplayspokemon on www.twitch.tv

Hopefully you guys have seen this by now! With a peak 85K viewers, TPP is the most popular thing on TwitchTv and a huge internet event right now. Since its creation, the host has added additional functions to vote for 'anarchy' (Red tries to carry out all commands, standard system) or 'democracy' (The command with the highest amount of votes every 10s goes through, allows multiple key presses e.g. 'down4start2').

Why is it so popular ?

I'd say both the nostalgia of playing through the original black and white pokemon games, combined with the absurdity of getting stuck on straight paths, using and throwing items at useless times etc.
The community following, with its inside jokes and narrative is also hilarious.

I bet they'll beat the elite four by 16d 0h 0m, may be slightly optimistic.
