  Payday 2 'Mega' Thread
Posted by: Jargonion - 17-06-2015, 01:59 PM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (9)

[Image: okfx3Y3.jpg]

Welcome to the Payday 2 'Mega' thread!

Payday 2 is a stunningly awesome game. Ever wanted to rob a bank? You can do it. Ever wanted to trash a mall? You can do it. Ever wanted to cook meth to trade for intel to help you get rich after killing your boss's rival mobsters? you can do it. Ever wanted to execute civilians on the street while you wait for that mother fucking drill to finish getting into the vault? Go ahead and buy the game and you can do it and so much more. There is a stunning amount of stuff to do in Payday 2, complete with a couple dozen stand-alone missions, a levelling and skill system, and weapon modifications.


[Image: SPRKRYI.jpg]
My hope is to show y'all around the bare-bones of the game, and demonstrate a piss-easy stealth bank robbery. There's a shit load more to do, but I didn't want to take a million screen-shots to document a single heist.

[Image: Dx57OGY.jpg]
First, the skill trees! There are 5 skill trees, each with a shit load of helpful skills to help you customise and compliment your play style. The mastermind skill tree is support based. For the most part, you'll be getting healing skills, pistol skills, and the ability to dominate a cop and turn him into an ally.

[Image: oC0Eslm.jpg]
The enforcer tree is the tank tree. You'll have the opportunity to turn shotguns into death-machines, increase your health and armour, and unlock the saw (to open atms, doors, and lock-boxes). You can also unlock the best armour in the game.

[Image: 8DVxaos.jpg]
The technician tree's pretty great, or pretty shit. You'll unlock trip mines, which later turn into C4 (to open doors and safes), turret guns (pretty excellent when maxed out), and drill skills to speed up and improve drills (which are a pretty commonly used tool). You'll also get a few other helpful, defensive skills. Technician's a handy support class, or a really nice auxiliary skill tree to strengthen other builds.

[Image: 9GotpVr.jpg]
Ghost - sneaky sneaky. You unlock ecms (jamming cellphones and radios so nobody can call the cops / open atms) and a bunch of other quality of life things. You can boost effectiveness of silenced weapons, move and bag shit faster, and learn to crack safes by hand and loop security cameras. You'll also be able to upgrade your ecms to temporarily block guard pagers (more on that in the next post) and open certain doors. 

[Image: GPdUaLQ.jpg]
Fugitive. Pretty alright, nothing special. You get lots of first-aid kits, powerful healing items that lack a mechanic found only in the medical kits. Honestly, this is a pretty new addition to the game, so the tree doesn't get handy until you reach the top tiers (9 seconds of unlimited ammo and ability to walk after getting downed, dual wielding pistols (shotguns coming soon)).

Let's find a mission! 

[Image: WXPCHw8.jpg]
Clicking on crime.net shows other people's games. I took this screenshot pretty early in the morning, so almost nobody was on. I set the filter to "nearby" not "worldwide".

[Image: 7o38zWz.jpg]
On the bottom left of the screen, you can chose to buy the mission you want to play, if you don't want to wait for it to randomly pop-up on crime.net. These are all the missions offered by BAIN, there are other contracts, I just didn't screenshot them all. There are a lot more missions than I have shown here.

[Image: dAyr7sx.jpg]
I've decided to stealth a bank. This is a really standard stealth-job, with the ability to completely neutralise the map. As Overkill worked on the game longer, they started to design much harder and more dynamic stealth missions. This is not one of those. This should be text-book.

[Image: CbylzKQ.jpg]
I scroll through my several-dozen weapons to find my silenced assault rifle.
[Image: dRa9eVf.jpg]
And I chose a silenced Deagle as my secondary, despite the silenced shotty being more fun.

[Image: pyLIcVi.jpg]
And a shiv for my melee.

More next post!

  Ratchet & Clank on PS4 - Trailer and Gameplay
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 11-06-2015, 08:57 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (5)

First look at Ratchet & Clank on PS4









[Image: 18647111981_14c6950836_b.jpg]



PlayStation Blog Wrote:Hey everyone. We know Ratchet & Clank, Insomniac Games, and PlayStation fans have been waiting to get a glimpse of Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4. We’re excited to bring you that first look today ahead of its playable debut on the showfloor of E3 next week.

In this trailer, you’ll see a few glimpses of footage from the film, and then your first-ever look at gameplay footage directly from the game coming exclusively to PS4. Check it out above.

We knew early on that we didn’t want to just up-res Ratchet & Clank for PS2. We started out thinking of Ratchet & Clank (PS4) as a “re-imagining” of the 2002 original, revised to tie in with the deeper version of Ratchet’s origin story as seen in the film. We envisioned a curated Ratchet & Clank experience that borrowed from the spirit of the classic PS2 titles while infusing some of the best elements from the Ratchet & Clank Future games.

[Image: 18644864865_442d54509d_z.jpg][Image: 18618515216_819f3517b4_n.jpg][Image: 18618515646_8009d1aa57_n.jpg]
 
We ended up with a new game, with elements based on the original – but now with modern controls, several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences, and more, all constructed to take advantage of the PS4’s graphical prowess. Throw in James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, and you have a new beginning.

The fresh start means we changed up the arsenal quite a bit as well. As always with Ratchet & Clank games, you battle your enemies with an out-of-this-world arsenal. In the PS4 version of Ratchet & Clank the majority of the arsenal are weapons that weren’t in the original game. That means both new weapons and fan-favourite tools of destruction from the Ratchet & Clank Future series will fill out Ratchet’s kit.

From the brand new Pixelizer (which transforms enemies into explosive 8-bit pixels) to franchise favourites like the dance-party-inducing Groovitron and wise-cracking robotic bodyguard Mr. Zurkon, Ratchet & Clank’s arsenal has never been better.


When we were asked recently to come up for a special bonus for fans that support Ratchet & Clank (PS4) by pre-ordering it, we went back to the list of our favourite weapons that we hadn’t yet brought to the game. In the end, it was a no-brainer, and I’m ecstatic to say that when you pre-order the game, you’ll get access to one of my all-time favourite weapons from Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked & Loaded – The Bouncer. The Bouncer launches a bomb that releases a plethora of tiny homing bombs that bounce towards targets. One of the most effective and spectacular Ratchet & Clank weapons ever.

We couldn’t be more excited to debut Ratchet & Clank on PS4 and the silver screen. For all the latest updates, stay tuned to the Insomniac Games Facebook and Twitter pages.

Help Ratchet and Clank save the galaxy for the first time, again!

Holy shit that gameplay! It's almost Pixar quality! The animation and lighting is fantastic. Thats how you do an HD remake/reimaging of a classic game.

Thoroughly loved all the original Ratchet an Clank games, I'm looking forward to playing this and seeing the movie. Great line up of games on the way next year!

Hhhnnggggg. This almost makes me wish I hadn't bought a PS4. It's very tempting to sell the one I have and get this. Look at that beautiful controller. I wonder if Xbox will get a similar console?

  Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Announced
Posted by: NZs no.3 - 05-06-2015, 10:37 AM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (2)

Naughty Dog’s acclaimed PS3 trilogy receives remastered release




PlayStation Blog Wrote:You’ve asked for it and we listened. Today we finally get to announce that Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception are being released for the PS4 in the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, available 7th October 2015 (9th October in UK and Ireland)!

Since the launch of the PS4, we’ve seen plenty of requests across our Twitter, Facebook, and message boards all over the internet for the first three games in the Uncharted series, which have managed to sell an amazing 21+ million copies and garner an average 92 Metacritic rating, to receive a remastered release.

We couldn’t agree more, as what better way to get prepared for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End than to revisit – or play for the first time – the first three games that launched the fortune-hunting icon that is Nathan Drake?

Early last month, Eric and I took a trip to Austin on the down low to visit the incredible team at Bluepoint Games to check out Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection in person and get ready for this announcement. What we’ve seen of the collection so far looks fantastic!
The team at Bluepoint Games is incomparable regarding their portfolio of achievements and remastered releases, and we’ve been working closely with them to bring over our engine to make Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection an exemplary game.

That means not only allowing you to play the single-player campaigns of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in 1080p and 60fps with better lighting, textures, and models, but they’re also working on a range of improvements and additions across all three games.

We put together the list of these improvements and additions based on countless forum posts, messages, Tweets, and even through personal conversations we’ve had with a number of you over the years. More on these specifics in future updates.

By pre-ordering Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection now, you can receive the Nathan Drake Pack which includes single player skins of iconic Drake outfits as well as everyone’s favorite weapons: the Golden AK-47 and Golden 92FS guns. If you pre-order the digital download via the PlayStation Store, you will also get an Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection PS4 dynamic theme.

[Image: 18447602222_8056b20981_o.png]

Oh, and one other important note, buying the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection grants you exclusive access to Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End multiplayer beta (while the beta is available, of course.)

With the release a scant four months away, we’re looking forward to getting you ready for Drake’s next adventure with the remastered version of these first three Uncharted titles. With luck we’ll be able to put together some opportunities for our fans to see and play parts of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection prior to its release. We’ll keep you posted here in the upcoming months.

  Pythagean's EU4 Campaign
Posted by: Pythagean - 20-05-2015, 01:20 PM - Forum: Video Game Discussion - Replies (6)

[Image: Europa-Universalis-4-hd-wallpaper.jpg]

Having never played EU4 (and only a small amount of experience with other grand strategy games like Civ V), I thought I would give this game a go. I've heard many good things about it, and I am now intending on chronicling my campaign here for whoever is interested in reading (and also to encourage myself to keep playing)

After a little bit of Googling I decided to start off playing as Castile. Supposedly a pretty easy country to start with while not being too powerful. (Also, it is exactly on the opposite side of the world to the North Island of NZ)

Note: I did not take any screenshots during the first two sessions, but I intend to do so for future posts. So I will just describe the events of my first 5 hours below

Beginnings


I started up the game, and after familiarizing myself with a couple of screens I let the game run for a little while. Aiming to just see where the game takes me. I found a map of the starting provinces for the region I am playing in:

[Image: IUBz58i.png]

After several years in the game I was starting to get to grip with some of the mechanics. I had formed alliances with Navarra and Portugal through political marriages, and somehow managed to piss off Aragon, the nation running along my Western border.

To War! (Eventually)

Portugal then decided that it wanted to go to war with Morocco, fair enough. Being an ally of theirs I was called into the war as well. Portuguese troops had crossed over to Morocco and were beginning to fight battles. It took me about 6 months of in game time to figure out how to transport my troops across the Straight of Gibralter (Portugal were probably regretting their choice of allies by now).

After landing on the shores of Tangiers, my regiments of Castilian troops joined the siege which was in progress. After another another 3-4 months the siege ended and Portugal took control of the province.
However just as I finished moving the rest of my troops across the sea, Portugal sued Morocco for peace and ended the war. 

It took me another few months to work out how to transport my troops back home after the war had ended (turns out I had to ask Portugal for permission to dock my ships at their port). 

Administration Level Up!

As times settled down on the continent, I was eventually able to get enough points to upgrade(?) my Administration and choose my first idea.

I chose the Religious Ideas (don't ask me why, I just picked one that looked like it might be helpful). I then set about building more regiments to add to my army (which turned out to be a mistake as I starting losing money each month due to the funds required to keep them)

War with Morroco v2 / Bloody Rebels

Less than a year later Portugal decided again that it would like to go to war with Morocco, this time they had Aragon as allies as well. I still didn't know why exactly Portugal was going to war again, but I was eager to actually be involved in the war this time, so I quickly set about moving most of my troops across the sea and laying siege to several Moroccan provinces.

For some reason, people were unhappy with the way I was running the country. A group of rebels rose up and tried to take Andalucía, luckily I still had several regiments of troops waiting to cross over to Morocco. I sent them to break the siege and deal to the rebellious traitors, threat dealt with (or so I thought).

During this time, my troops overseas had managed to take the province of Fez, I spread most of the troops who had just taken Fez to the other provinces I was battling in. The war was looking good, Portugese and Aragon(ese?) forces had also taken another province and were starting to move south.

Now was when the trouble started, a massive group of rebels had now risen up in Castilla La Vieja. 12 regiments of troops were laying siege to the province. 

My attempts at breaking the siege with the small numbers of troops back in Castile had failed, so I was forced to bring most of my troops home from war to deal with this threat to my Empire.
Castilla La Vieja held out long enough for my army to arrive and destroy the rebel factions, maybe I should try keep my citizens happier...

While I was dealing with the internal problems of my Empire, Protugal had again come to an agreement with Morocco, this time they took a fair chunk of land from the Moroccan Empire. (Including Fez, which I had won for them!)

Let's Take Granada

My troops returned home to Castile and joined up with the army that had finished dealing with the rebels. 
My military upkeep costs were rather high, and so not wanting to disband my regiments, I went to war with Granada (That's a good reason to go to war isn't it?)

Even Portugal came to help in my quest to conquer Granada, and pretty soon I had destroyed their troops and had all of their provinces under siege. After taking Almeria and Gibralter, I sued the Granada Empire for peace and annexed them completely. Making them part of Castile. Victory!


That was the end of my first 5 hours of Europa Universalis IV, stay tuned for future posts and watch things inevitably go wrong.

To celebrate the release of the expansion, we are releasing the Helldivers: Turning Up The Heat Edition Bundle for €20.99.

It will be available for a limited time only.



More reinforcements

In addition to the free content of Turning Up The Heat, Helldivers also adds four more Reinforcement packs for those in need of EVEN MORE DEMOCRACY.






Each pack is available separately for €2.99 and the Demolitionist, Hazard Ops and Pilot packs are available together in the Reinforcements Pack 2 for €5.99.



Specialist Pack

Helldiver Specialists are highly trained offensive support operatives. They specialise in the use of Stratagems and supportive fire. They are specially trained to receive enhanced air support. The Specialist Pack contains:


  • The Specialist Uniform (Helmet, Armor, and Cape).
  • LAS-12 ‘Tanto': An ultra-compact laser SMG with extremely limited range. The short focused beam is very powerful to compensate for the short engagement envelope.
  • Close Air Support: An ‘Eagle’ delivers a powerful strafing run followed by a pair of anti-tank missiles. Effective at damaging almost all targets it does however have the drawback of being slightly unpredictable.

Demolitionist Pack

Helldiver Demolitionists are experts at tearing things down and blowing things up. They are rumored to be careless when handling explosives, though this is most likely just their familiarity with explosives being misinterpreted. The Demolitionist Pack contains:

  • The Demolitionist Uniform (Helmet, Armor, and Cape).
  • MG-105 ‘Stalwart': A light machinegun based on the AR-19 ‘Liberator’. It’s very powerful when used in sustained fire, but the initial recoil is often hard to handle resulting in unpredictable spread.
  • REC-6 ‘Demolisher': A remote Explosive Charge capable of destroying both objectives and heavily armored enemies. The user can decide when to detonate the charge by pressing the detonator. Often referred to as a Satchel Charge.

Hazard Ops Pack

The Hazard Operative Helldivers are trained in chemical and biological combat and protection. Sometimes shunned by fellow Helldivers for their use of inhumane warfare, many a Helldiver is happy to have them on the mission when it comes down to life or death. It’s not like the enemy is Human after all.


  • The Hazard Ops Uniform (Helmet, Armour, and Cape).
  • AR-14D ‘Paragon': A heavy semi-automatic rifle firing rounds similar to the AR-20L ‘Justice’, but without the penetrating capabilities. Instead the rounds are hollowed out and filled with a neurotoxin causing targets hit to become slow and sluggish.
  • TOX-13 ‘Avenger': A high pressure liquid projection weapon similar to the FLAM-40 ‘Incinerator’. Instead of projecting flaming napalm, this weapon sprays a very potent neurotoxin resulting in slow movements and irreversible brain damage.

Pilot Pack

The Pilot Helldiver is specially trained to operate the wide arsenal of vehicles available to the Helldiver troops. Especially trained in the use of the EXO-48 ‘Obsidian’ Exosuit, Pilots are some of the few that are given the honour of using this heavily armed monster. Though they prefer to use vehicles they are still Helldivers and very formidable troops on foot. The Pilot Pack contains:


  • The Pilot Uniform (Helmet, Armor, and Cape).
  • AC-5 Arc Shotgun: A further development of the Arc technology, the AC-5 fires a wide, short range cone and damages everything covered by the static discharge. The charge up is much faster than the original Arc Thrower but the discharge is not quite as powerful.
  • EXO-48 ‘Obsidian': A powerful exosuit with two double autocannons. The firepower contained in this walking monstrosity annihilates light and medium infantry, and the two magazines allows for both maximum firepower or conserving ammunition. The only downside to this mech is its distinct lack of anti-tank capabilities.
