Exclamation Forum's Fisticuffs Fridays
Posted by: Selegraphon - 06-03-2014, 11:37 PM - Forum: Fisticuffs Fridays - Replies (5)

A thread for information and questions about the events run by The Video Game Forum, colloquially known as Fisticuffs.

The first convening of the Fisticuffs Fellowship

What is Fisticuffs?

Fisticuffs is an event held by the forum admins.

Yeah, but what actually is it?

Oh. Right. We all play a multiplayer videogame, and everyone talks on Skype. We also have fun occasionally sometimes. They are recorded and edited into a "highlights" video for your viewing pleasure.

When is it?

Every second Friday night. Usually starts at 8pm New Zealand time (UTC/GMT +12 hours), and conludes when everyone leaves. Often lasts for several hours.

How can I join?

Details are posted beforehand on the Facebook group and the forum itself. This will tell you what game to buy/own/download, who will be hosting the Skype call, the server which we will play on, and what time we start. Everyone is welcome, but please add the host on Skype/Steam/Origin/etc in advance, so you can join our call/game. Adding people later wastes time, and is annoying in general, so joining the host's game on Steam is preferable.

What are the rules?

In short, don't:
  • Be an idiot
  • Shout/Be unnecessarily loud/Be intentionally annoying (It's not funny)
  • Interrupt people (Let people finish, unless absolutely necessary. Having everyone shout over each other doesn't make for a good highlights video. If in doubt, just remember that the person that you are interrupting is probably just about to say something funnier than you are.)
  • Play!
  • Interact, talk, make jokes
  • Be inclusive (Gift spare copies of the game to people that don't have it, for example)
  • Have fun
I want to suggest a game to play?

While all suggestion are welcome, encouraged even, do keep in mind that we only play games that are either free, very cheap, or on sale, recently or at the time. If you feel your suggestion is appropriate, post it in this thread here, and if it's good, we'll add it to the future battle-plans thread here.

Also, if you have suggestions about anything else to do with Fisticuffs, drop one of the admins a PM, or alternatively make a new thread about it.

We welcome all constructive feedback and criticism! And we certainly appreciate all compliments!

Why would anyone want to do this?

dunno lol

  J.A.V.G.T. (Just Awesome Video Game Trailers)
Posted by: Lazy Dave The Monstrosity - 06-03-2014, 05:19 PM - Forum: Video Games - Replies (5)

Everyone's seen one: a trailer which takes their breath away. A trailer unlike any other, causing you to doubt whether a trailer can ever again be better than the one you've just watched. A trailer urging you to pre-order what looks to be the greatest, most hard-core, beautiful, scintillating, infuriatingly perfect game of all time!

And it's a flop.

Well screw the game (yes, I'm looking at you Dead Island)! Post your favourite/new/awesome video game trailers below. Don't be shy, if you enjoy it, it deserves to be in this thread. Maybe give a little description as to why you like it so much.

Simple thread, post screenshots here, don't forget to say what game it is.

Maybe I'll make a mybb code so you can add captions to images and have fun with it, who knows.

  Should I buy Receiver on sale?
Posted by: Selegraphon - 05-03-2014, 12:31 AM - Forum: Video Games - Replies (5)

Has anyone played Receiver? And if so, is it worth picking up, seeing as it's 66% off ($1.69 USD) on Steam?

I can't get enough of this game. It's a damn shame the AI is so useless, but that's about all that I can fault. Graphic overhaul mods are plentiful and easy to use, and I don't have much of an issue with vanilla textures anyway.

So, how do y'all play?

I always spec in rifle and computer, with later points in medicine (since I only play realistic mode). Since the shotgun is considered a rifle, all I need is the first shotgun and the sniper, and I'm all set. That said, I always carry a GEP for the early game.

As for augs, I'm a health regen / speed boost / emp drone whore. I can live without the drone, but it's a quality of life thing.

So, how do you guys play?

  [PC] Hawken
Posted by: AdminGG - 02-03-2014, 05:36 PM - Forum: Video Games - 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!
