Re: QuakeCon 2016: Quake Champions

I'm keen to see what they do with it. I don't like that some characters will be able to bunnyhop while others can only strafe jump - that's just outright broken. The ability to actually accelerate around corners is just crazy to the point where either everyone needs it or nobody should have it. But ...

Diabotical by The GD Studio

Kickstarter is live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/84288219/diabotical-by-the-gd-studio Check the game out, right from the mind of James "is an ass - (c) GabeN" Harding. The gameplay looks solid, and 2GD really knows the genre well. I've played some of the earlier public tests and it felt rea...

Re: Overwatch

Individual performance factors into your ranking in placement matches, so it wouldn't surprise me if that carried over through the entire system.

Shootmania isn't worth the money, there are just better fast FPS games out there. Quake Live and Reflex have been on sale for that price or lower a couple of times, plus UT4 and others are totally free!

Re: What are you watching?

I watched Stranger Things on Netflix. I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. Most of the elements of the show were comfortingly familiar - don't expect anything you haven't sen before here honestly - but it was put together in a really interesting way. It's like it took a lot of fun ideas and mash...

I'm pretty sure they'd call it The Lost Levels if it wasn't the Doki Doki Panic reskin

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Well conspiracy theories aside, Pokemon GO has a load of GPS data about people. They can sell that on, to the CIA or anyone else. I've tried out the free-to-play multiplayer RTS Boid on Steam the last few days. It's very simple and abstract, with a load of depth. I don't know just how competitive it...

Re: Overwatch

Ana is apparently in the PTR.



Seems very powerful, for the versatility of being able to damage and heal interchangeably. She doesn't appear to have any mobility though, so if that's the case then she'll be pretty dead in the water I reckon.

Re: Mechanical Keyboards and Clickity Switches!

Yeah but that's a pretty small margin of no-contact. Practically is it actually significant? I didn't even know it could happen, although I don't have my own Browns. I've never heard a single person with Browns refer to being able to press it past the bump without it registering as a keypress. Anywa...

I specifically addressed this in the last post. After the bump is the activation point on Browns.

Re: Mechanical Keyboards and Clickity Switches!

I said the white slider literally completes the keypress by moving down itself after the tactile bump to activation point thus completing the circuit. The while slider does not complete the keypress, the leaf spring on the left does. The white slider does not move to the activation point. The activ...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - July 2016

Oh yeah, when i said no switches need you to bottom them out I meant no Cherry switches. Membrane and scissor switches only make a connection fully depressed, or close to it. And there's nothing wrong with bottoming out your keys, but it's easier on your fingers and potentially faster if you learn n...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - July 2016

You're thinking of tactile, which is different to the switch operation. After the bump on browns you need to continue the key press, after the bump on blues the switch takes over and completes the press for you. The click noise on blues is a by-product of the switch mechanism. Blues are tactile too...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - July 2016

Ok let's just clarify one thing - the keypress doesn't happen when the key bottoms out, it registers when the metal bits on the left hand side of the diagram make contact. The bump in the bit pushing the spring arm, be it brown or clear or any other colour, is the reason for the "bump" and then bott...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - July 2016

It isn't that the key finishes the key press, it's that the in tactile keys the key has a "bump" after the activation point and you end up bottoming it out. MX Browns have the same tactile mechanism as the blues, but without the clicking (the blues take a different amount of force though, presumably...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - July 2016

The mechanical keyboards with the worst clicking sound are the ones with MX Blue switches. Those actually have an artificial clicker in them, making them louder than they should be. The sound is horrible and uncessecary, but people love them for some reason. Probably because loud typing makes them f...

The confusing thing that puts a hard limit on how much time has passed had been the looming trial of Cersei. It's not clear how long it took for that to happen, and how much time passed after.

D.Va is a situational tank. She isn't anywhere near as tanky as Rein or Roadhog, and once her mech dies she's basically a liability haha. If the only tank on your team is a D.Va you're definitely going to suffer for it. The only times I've seen D.VA used well in high level games is on D at the captu...
