Warthunder and W:RD, but recently i switched it for WARNO
A bit of WRD every now and thenWhat I want to try out is Command: Modern Operations. Don't know if I'll have enough spare time to really use that game (?) to its fullest potential though.
>>53524585It's actually uncanny how much that resembles some situations in Men of War.
>>53524633I've heard WARNO is shit, what's good about it to warrant playing it despite having one tenth of W:RD content?
WoWs/ WT every now and then
Combat Mission: Black Sea
>>53524585Combat Mission foreverIL2:FBRise of NationsCommand and Conquer remastered.Generally military stuff with some form of realism, not crap like starcraft where LOS and variable damage aren't a thing.Combat Mission: Black Sea is why I wasn't surprised one bit at how this operation has gone down. Russians went into this thinking it was going to be a quick CS:GO match.
>>53524585Hell let looseDeep rock galactic
>>53524585god I wish reciever was actually fun
Yeah i enjoyed it, even though it's not a great game.In retrospect, it depicted the Russians as far more of a threat than they really were. But they even predicted a failed VDV vanguard landing (in Paris, not Kiev) and Brexit.
I want a mod that depicts the ADVENT soldiers as RussOrks, and "The Elders" as Putin. "The Lost" would be the VDV. Would fit very well with the ADVENT propaganda. All the actual alien species (Muton, Snake-men etc.) can remain unaltered.
>>53524585If you want well-explained, kinda-realistic, futuristic weapons, Mass Effect does a pretty good job
>>53524585>STALKER/Metro/Tarkov discussion,I know /k loves stalker and I know why but I never really played more than a few minutes of it. I love the close combat games and have played and replayed all of them and the remakes beyond that the original command and conquers, the original warcraft RTS, the Dune and emperor of dune RTS. Has not been a really good FPS since the original dune and duke nukem with a nod to Return to Castle Wolfenstein, doom 3, early ww2 medal of honour games and half life.Like d the soutrackto Half life zenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0HTqqwZq-oBut in general FPS games are shit and RTS is where it is at.
Started playing ace combat 7 recently, its really fun although i think they might have to reconsider russian plane stats in the future Also the English dub is horrendous compared to the jap on and Im not even a weeb
i liked the first Ghost Recon: Wildlands for le operator feel with tongue in cheek
>>53525051>Also the English dub is horrendous compared to the jap on and Im not even a weebShut upAnd pass me a sandwich
>>53524686I basically bought warno banking that I'd play it in a year once the campaign was put in. it needs like a solid ~6 months of content drops and campaigns to be good.
>>53525071It is though. Many of the english ones sound like they are just reading lines from a paper, 0 emotion.
>>53525051>RussianYuktobania probably makes Sukhois that aren't vatnigger tier
>>53525110Ace Combat is a lot like Silent Hill in that the distinctly uncanny delivery of its voice actors has become part of the series identity.
>>53524999I've been doing a fresh modded run through of XCOM 2 and it's a lot of fun. I love all the gear queer assets that get ripped out of other games. I'm about to do my first Chosen stronghold raid.

>>53526502I have almost 2000 hours in this game https://youtu.be/s8-t5Xl6Ve4
>>53524686Warno is an example of how things should be done in SD. It has both things that I liked in SD and WG and doesn't have stupid mechanics from both of them.Yet it does need more time

Afterconflict PKM preview.>>53525273Based.If you've played both FSW games, try SOCOM: Tactical Strike.
>>53524585project reality was good, but too many radio napoleons, that would rather RP than actually win/competerust (dealing with / managing retards is a skill)sprocketcrysis (early levels on super hard, without powers, is a good stealth / ambush game, and has the most realistic forest/ foliage to date)operation flashpoint resistance, AI is actually the best of the series, and you do straight up anti russian invasion, stealing tanks / ambushes etc.hidden and dangerous 2stalker mods, because the weapon ballastics are so comfy
>>53524911Rock and Stone, to the BONE!>>53524585I consider StarSector to be fairly /k/ from a futuristic top down 4x rts game perspective.There is just too much you can do in that game strategy wise on a military and economic level.Shame the overarching strategic commands you can give are so limited, though. It is very much limited to small time battle strategy, even if you can do a lot on top of that.
>>53524585Bad Company 2 and BF4 are the best shooter games. I will not back down on that opinion
>>53524585>what other /k/ vidya do you play?Rising Storm 2 VietnamSquad (only with friends)Max Payne 3Insurgency Sandstorm
World in Conflict is incredibly based, but I can't get it to run on my new PC for some reason. Keeps throwing "out of memory" errors even after using a tool to allow it to utilize more than 2GB of memory.
Did anyone here ever play the old Half-Life mod Firearms? I miss that shit and it never really took off.
>>53524585Battletech with the Roguetech mod
>>53524585Kerbal Space Program and Deep Rock Galactic
Does anybody remember Sudden Strike? It came out the same time as Red Alert 2.I even got it for christmas 2000, I think.I never finished it because some bug made a mission with the Americans impossible to beat.It also had a map editor.
WG ALB at the moment.My favourite thing is playing a super air heavy deck in big AI Vs AI battles, and conducting an air interdiction campaign against enemy CVs and artillery (as well as doing CAS and CAP obviously), with all the fun meta of SEAD.Heavy artillery (IE: 8 inch) for example is a great tool for SEAD/DEAD, mortars can be very useful too to support CAS (medium artillery is trash for whatever reason).I obviously play more normal decks too.Might actually try Warno if you guys are reccing it
>>53525273God damn I used to love these games as a kid played the absolute fuck outta ten hammers
Ghost Recon Wildlands is a pretty fun larp game. The AI is stupid so you get to feel like a super operator.
>>53528990I did, but pretty late and only agaisn't bots.I did play Firearms Source when it was active before the project died from drama.>>53529076SS and Blitzkrieg were pretty good

I find this to be underrated, it's very heavily detailed but the presentation is quite abstract so you have to be ok with that. It also simulates chain of command and orders taking time to be sent and implemented a bit like the Combat Mission games which I like.

>>53524585Dawn of War and Command & Conquer series.
>>53533499desu one of the first things I did after the invasion was replay the Viggen campaign in DCS where you stall a Russian invasion of Georgia, survive failed cruise missile strikes on your airbase and drop cluster bombs on enemy convoys. then in later missions you even [spoiler] penetrate Russian airspace at low level to destroy an oil refinery and sink a Russian cruiser in a AShM strike [/spoiler]

>>53534972More similar to C&C but with CoH thrown in
>>53534972In exchange for your Wargame opinion, AMA about any shooter you like, I've played every single one.
>>53534972It is a tactical skirmish. You don't build anything, but buy units with points that you receive for controlling zones.You hold a zone by parking a headquarters unit inside the zone.Units have HP but can be killed in a single hit. Reinforcements drive in from off-map via a map-edge zone that has a reinforcement road. Each vehicle has a limited number you can spawn, such as only being able to spawn 4 tanks of a single type, but if you bring two types of tanks you might have 8 total or more. So if you lose all your good units, it doesn't matter if you technically had enough points to buy more, they're sold out.The game is mostly about using recon units to spot for the shooters as most units can hit targets farther than they can detect.

>>53534926I've been eyeing up Into The Radius. It looks like it's come a long way. How is it?
>>53524585Defcon is cozy.
Shilling Graviteam Tactics, it's more of a sim in that it has things like communications and observation needed for calling artillery and proper ballistics and vehicle damage. UI takes a little getting used to and you'll have to read up on some mechanics that aren't well explained but for me it helped in understanding what battles would really be like in terms of positioning, distances, and importance of command. Feels quite surreal seeing footage from Ukraine now and how things play out like in muh vidya almost exactly down to location as most of the most of the content is based on the eastern front in WW2 and the devs are actually from Kharkov (there's also dlc for Iran/Iraq War and Angolan Bush War).
>>53524585I've been enjoying the shit out of UBOAT for a few weeks now. It still needs work and it sucks that there's only like four songs in the game, but what's there is enjoyable. I've had IronWolf VR and Cold Waters in my library for years but haven't felt like touching them... this is making me want to give those a run too.
>>53537648def. give cold waters a shot. It's hard, for me, but it's a really good game.
>>53536205Share modlist pls

I got back into Forgotten Hope 2 recently. Surprised to find still 40 players on a server from time to time, despite being a mod for a game made in 2005.You can get it for free here. https://playfh2.net/I fucking LOVE their artillery system. I went 36 and 0 when I got on the 25 pounder in Sidi Rezegh.I just love the game and would love for anyone to play it as well.If you're interested, their site has (most of them anyways) detailed pictures of all the weapons, vehicles, and uniforms in the game. Plus, any map's listed have screenshots of them, a short description of their historical significance, and what vehicles are present on there, all separated by theater of operations, and then sorted chronologically. I'd highly highly recommend.
>>53538386Main ones I use areB9 Procedural wings (that's what the fuselage of the aircraft are made of, modded versions with more health / more health and buoyancy are used to make tanks and ships)AARS for air to air refuelingAoA TechAviation Cockpits (Grab the extra cockpits from the forum thread too, F-104 cockpit is pretty versatile)Aviator ArsenalAtmosphere AutopilotBD ArmoryFerram Aerospace ResearchFox Defense ContractsImproved Chase CameraKerbal Attachment SystemKerbal Aircraft ExpansionKerbal FieldKerbal FoundriesKerbal Join ReinforcementAircraft Carrier AccessoriesKerbal Inventory SystemModular Fuel TanksNaval Artillery SystemsNear Future Series (+ Kerbal Atomics, most of these are for space stuff)NKDRNice MKseries BodyOpen CockpitProcedural PartsRCS Build AidSCANSATShip Effects ContinuedSkyer's Part PackSM Missile LaunchersSXTTweakscaleMost of my craft are entirely made up of B9 Procedural Wings, it takes a lot of autism but you can get some pretty accurate stuff made that way.

>>53538675Cool, and what version are you on?I have an old 0.9 folder somewhere with really a decked out FW-190 and an A-10, iirc.Keeping up with the latest versions and forks because maintainer died and all that is really exhausting and I had bad experiences with CKAN in the past.
>>53528990Fuuuuu based Firearms rememberer - this mod was massively underrated. I'm fairly certain that this was the first shooter that had a proper system for magazines - ie you didn't just reload from a pool of ammo, but each mag kept count and you could accidently reload a mag with like 4 rounds in it if you didn't re-arm. Also had a perk where you could do fast reloads and the animation for the M16 was like Elias in Platoon. Fucking brilliant game>F

>>53524585I started playing through Kingdom Come Deliverance again recently. It has a steep learning curve and is very unforgiving, you need to do quite a bit of training to have any hope of beating more than a 1 on 1 engagement but when you do, it feels like very rewarding. The combat is intense and there's ton of weapons and armour, a pretty decent perk system and the story balances humour and dark, gritty elements quite well.If you looking for a difficult, light simulator for medieval combat and life, give it a go.
>>53538912God bless you, Henry!
>>53524585I absolutely loved the aesthetics of The Division, as well as the plot. But the lack of any attempt at realism in the combat mechanics and meta got to me after a while and I couldn't play it anymore.
>>53538912 #I've really got to replay this game. Looks fantastic, was full of sweet cryengine eurojank. Probably going to check mods and remove the lame slo-mo from combat. Felt as good as webm related when I finally yoinked some armor off a corpse.>GOD SAVE. HENRY!
>>53524585>>53524585>>53524585Anons, maybe you can help me find this shit:I remember seeing a strategy-ish game at a relative's PC as a child, some time before 2004, maybe even before 2002. It was a top-down view or maybe isometric and featured real-world weaponry (WWII as far as I can tell). I don't remember any infantry units but what does stand out was rail-based artillery. I think it was an RTS but given how long ago this was, I cannot be 100% sure. Does anyone know which game might fit the bill?
>>53538912What are you on about? The combat gets trivially easy the second you unlock master strikes. I literally beat Runt with a wooden stick while naked and bleeding. Duels become impossible to lose if you aren't retarded and even 3v1s are still fairly easy, provided you have good armor. The combat is easily the least balanced part of the game. I mean I guess it's not terrible but cheesing seems almost intended.
>>53525068It was really fun. To bad they fucked up the sequel.

Favourite thing about Men of War is you can rip 50cals out of tanks and give them to infantry. So fun getting your elite guys (so they always have max skills with all weapons) it and just soloing the entire map with this one guy. Weird though how Commandos (I think) are the elite spawn unit for UK but only have 4* skill (and come with De Lissle Carbines) when silenced weapons are useless due to AI.

>>53524585Used to play Beyond the Wire (WW1 western front) but after getting banned from the Steam community for racism I lost my taste for it.

>>53528990fuck yes. it was very clunky though if i remember correctly. a big difference between successful mods and unpopular ones was the quality of the GUI/menus/transitions and stuff. gameplay was adequate i remember, but it felt like you were obviously playing a HL1 mod. it felt more like they were focusing on a thrown together pseudo-military theme with a huge shitpile of guns and didn't spend much time on actual gun physics. im thinking back to the early 2000s, not comparing it to contemporary games. and i do love HL1 mods. CS 1.6 had/has insanely retarded bullet physics/recoil. DOD 2.0 was mindblowing for me because of how fucking good the recoil effects were, but it always suffered with less popularity.

>>53536205I used to do this a lot, however it started to really bug me that Ferram aerospace is not actually realistic.It uses a voxel/raycast based Aero simulation rather than a more true to life fluid dynamics model.Obviously the latter is basically impossible to do in real time without a legit supercomputer, but there are a lot of things that aren't accurate without it.Flaps and slats for example do not perform right with Ferram, they seem to act like an independent wing and will stall separate from the wing based on relative angle of attack and with no consideration to what the actual airflow would be like.High angle flap settings that exist in real life will often just act as drag brakes in game.Any kind of vortex generation does not work correctly, high sweep wings will get a lift bonus at high AOA, but they cannot interact with any other parts of the aero like they would IRL.It's also very difficult to actually make your own FBW system, there are kind of bodge ways you can do it using AOA/pitch limiters, but it's very limited.Obviously there is a MOD that has a very good auto FBW, but It doesn't work on separate AI aircraft, so you can't fly against it.To give an example, your F-18.You painstakingly re-create it in-game using publicly available blueprints, and using procedural mods and the real F-404 engine from the AJE mod, it's just like the real thing down to the weight and everything.However when you fly it and try to do something simple like a carrier approach, your AOA is massively high because your LERX don't actually provide you with the vortex lift of the real F-18, and when you deploy your flaps to 30° to rectify the situation, you fall out of the sky completely as they immediately stall.It's so close to perfection that the errors are just so glaring once you really start sinking time in.Maybe one day my real time fluid modeling, build your own plane flight sim will exist.

>>53546666Based mega Satan, Empire 2 when CA you fucking hacks. And it better not be given the Warhammer 3 treatment
>>53546662The real issue with FAR is that it uses lifting line theory with the thin plate assumption to simulate lift AFAIK. While certainly valid for simple wing geometries and when these are limited to a single part, when you start combining wings and shit and expecting fluid simulation you're fucked. The drag is by voxel/raycast AFAIK but the wings are completely lifting line and each wing is calculated by its own so your oswald efficiency goes to shit if you use multi-part wings. The flaps/slats act as independent wings like you said, they're also lifting line which is retarded, and don't change the camber of the wing they're attached to, this allows for retarded behavior like using automatic slats set to negative AOA (so as you pull up they go up instead of go down) you get more lift from your wings, this isn't always beneficial as setting them to AOA (so they go down as you pull up) allows you to decrease the downforce required from your tail to pull up gives you better efficiency most times, but nonetheless it's retarded. I actually work with CFD sims so the issues are super glaring to me lmao. At the end of the day though with a bunch of fudging you can get designs that kinda-sorta function like their IRL counterparts.The whole aerodynamics thing is actually why I made a version of the F-18C in the image that has bigger wings than its IRL counterpart as well as bigger LERX panels (which really just function as additional lift in the nose). It can't pull 20 degrees/s sustained unless it has that.FAR gets worse when it comes to water though. Ships are a pain in the ass to make in FAR and they don't work well.Regarding FBW, you can tune up the BD Armory AI pretty well, mind you it still struggles with aircraft with relaxed stability, lord knows getting the AI to fly my F-16, Su-27 and my upgraded F-18-like design took a while, but they can get there.Real time CFD is still a ways away but hopefully it'll come at some point.

Are any of the Ghost Recon games worth playing? I fucking loved GRAW 2 as a kid but that's the only Ghost Recon I ever played. I hear mixed opinions about Wildlands and everyone seems to hate Breakpoint but I've literally never heard anyone here on in /v/ talk about the other Ghost Recons. As a /k/ fag, are any of them worth the time?
Does anyone know the process for playing Tarkov in singleplayer? I've never modded in my life but singleplayer Tarkov sounds super cozy
>>53543779Halo Reach maybe? It feels more militaristic than the others, if that makes sense. Noble 6 is an elite operator of the UNSC, whereas Master Chief is just some big dude with a plasma pistol and a bad attitude. Hell, Halo Infinite feels so much like nu-Doom at some points.
>>53537419different VRanon here but holy fuck ITR is goodv2.2 added a bunch of difficulty sliders so you can fine tune your postapocalyptic wasteland to your liking, and there's a mod that also makes you have to scavenge more rather than buy from the shophighly recommend and really hope they open up workshop support so we can port areas from other games
Started playing Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. I've been a console player all my life so, as you can imagine, I never played mil-sims or tactical shooters that much. But, Goddamn, OF Dragon Rising is so much fun. There's something so /k/ino about playing as a 2nd Lieutenant leading a four man squad through the island jungles just off China while wearing NVGs.
>>53552242Wildlands and everything after Wildlands is just playing GTA5 with a really laxxed RoE>Don't kill civilians 10 times or else you mission fail and restart at the last checkpointkind of RoE>Everything is so far a apart you spend 90% of the game flying to places>Fly to get gun mods>Fly to get resources>Fly to objective>Maybe drive a car to location for a missionYou can play dressup with all the guns, camo, and gear but that gets fun for maybe 5 minutes then you just go on Reddit and look at people larping which is cool>Most guns are modeled after air shit including the incessant use of the Walmart chink Coyote red dot sight>There is a literal airsoft metal face mesh in BreakPointWish I could play GRAW on the PC, Future Soldier 1 and 2 are good but last I tried Ubisoft shutdown the multiplayer servers so no more online coop
>>53552347I bought EFT just to play the singleplayer mod, the guide on the website is pretty straightforward, just don't do the mistake my friend did and delete the original game files
>>53539820Steel panthers or Panzer General maybe?
>>53524585Gunner, Heat, PC.
>>53552719I cannot fucking wait for this game.

>>53538716What's it like to have reliable long term gaming friends? I never did much online playing most of my life, and only got into it two years ago when I put together my first gaming pc. None of my IRL friends game and most folks I meet through random discord servers are either annoying or huge flakes.
>>53552609Fair enough. Might look into Future Soldier, I remember when it came out and it looked fun at least. Cheers, anon.
>>53552609My favorite part is>Oh no my 'instantly teleport Little Bird to my location' button is on a 30 second cooldown>Guess I'll have to drive until the cooldown is gone>Do missions to decrease the cooldown of how fast you can instantly teleport a Little Bird on top of your head>Be pilot>So my friend could go on their phone>Sometimes we switched and I could get some shut-eye>M203 is a tactical nuke that will snipe attack helicopters, explode every thin-skinned vehicle caught within its 10meters radius>Not having a M203 means you are sandbagging the firepower of the team because instant 40mm is really handy when it's 4v120 cartel gang members
>>53538983The plot was stupid as expected from Ubishit but the backdrop and aesthetics were pretty cool. Had fun replaying it when Covid first hit kek
i hope bandai will soon port GuP games to PC, so we can finally be free from gajins vatnig greed
got myself a switch, anything /k/ related to play there?
Hell Let Loose or Post Scriptum?
>>53528902I had the same problem on some specific missions. Finally beat the issue by turning the graphics down for those.
>>53538729What's the difference. Saw the trailer for ICBM and thought it looked like an ugly defcon clone. Are there actually improvements to the gameplay?
>>53525051>Reconsider russian plane statesDon't be so retarded. The migs and SUs are plenty agile and fit right into the Ace Combat flying style. Also you should play Project Wingman. It's way better than AC7.
Falcon 4 BMSI bought the original F4 when it came out, it was so far ahead of its time its ridiculous. I do have DCS but ultimately I love the real time campaign and the living battlefield in F4 too much. I always prefer an organic mission of importance over a scripted one. And yes, I have done a post SEAD victory roll over our lines just before a big push on the way back, I like to think it raises morale.Given F4 is like $5 on Steam (if you can't find an iso knocking around) and BMS is free I think if you have DCS and the gear for that you have to give it a go.
For me, it's Shadow Empire.
>>53547809Why can't we get a proper Cold War game? I would kill for an early CW game with half the weaponry being from WW2.
is killzone /k/?
What does /k/ think of Foxhole?
Command Modern Operations
>>53524585I enjoy tank crew in hell let loose. The small squad coordination is fun. I had a squad where we had 65 infantry and 12 vehicle kills. May be a low number compared to people who have played longer but I have a great time doing it. Just have to get a crew that doesn't think heavy tank = best all the time.
what about call to arms and call to arms ostfront. i think that turning to FPS mode is genius idea
>>53543779Yes, Halo is absolutely a sci fi /k/ series. A 7 foot tall green virgin and his hologram waifu go on suicide missions to stop the Space Caliphate from genociding humanity. Also, Reach and ODST are /k/ by their own merit.
>>53524686modding support was introduced
>>53552242The original Ghost recon is great
>>53552242the newer ghost recons are only fun if played with friends
Red orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad has a pretty comfy community.
>>53557918Somebody said it at last. PW really IS better than AC7. AC7 only has them beat with the amount of planes, but the missions all blow and the multiplayer is weak as fuck.I pre-ordered AC7 just to help keep the series alive but the game was honestly unremarkable. 4-6 had better gameplay and missions.
>>53556283splatoon, i guess
>>53524585I suppose Paradox games are not in favor here, or?..
No love for Zomboid?Definitely the best of the survival sim genre for me, just enough autism from the Roguelike genre without becoming obtuse and enough detail and fun stuff to do to keep it from turning into DayZ but isometric I love setting up a base on the upper level of a commercial building then building a gauntlet downstairs for zombies to run through to get to me when I ring the dinner bell, the new multiplayer servers are brutal too, I wiped a group of 3 with rifles yesterday by luring them into a building I'd preset to be indefensible and then firing a couple shots to draw a horde over to them
metal gear is preatty /k/
why do some bare bones indies want me to run them on a quad core PC? optimize your fucking games indieshits
>>53558062I want to try but I don't have friends for this game. It's friendly?
>>53557873Its vastly expanded on what you can do. for instance naval combat is more then just nuclear assets. Attack subs are very valuable. Cruisers are super important for being able to bring anti sat, ABMs, and nasty AA around but don't fair to well in surface warfare which your destroyers do very well in along with detecting and torpedoing subs. Probably biggest difference is you are actively building your region's nuclear and conventional assets instead of placing 5 silos and 5 radars and being done so it becomes a race to see if you can get more silos, SAMs, radar and various warheads researched and set up before your opponent does.
>>53558093'83 is kill.>>53558033Afterconflict is still in development but it's late cold war.
>>53558225I played the first one as a kid and I didn't understand that you could move the squad as a unit, so I just used each dude as a new life.
>>53559247For the most part, yes. I started as a solo logi man in 2019 and it was comfy running random supplies to the front, at least for my autistic self. Solo logi is time-consuming as well as building your own base. If you ask around for help with how to do something or if someone has an extra seat in their tank, there is always at least one person who's willing to speak up and mentor you.At least for the Warden (blue) side. From what I've heard the Collies (green) have a lot more solo players, but it's more chaotic logi-wise as a result. There are indeed hardcore clans that will harass you or even execute you if they suspect you being an alt, this week there was a massive alt attack on the Warden's side and a lot of clan stockpiles were destroyed so paranoia is rampant right now, but if you're talkative and are genuinely willing to have "serious fun" and not fuck around at the front, you'll be fine.
>>53560275>83 is killWhat happen?
>>53537326based PW poster, imo the only thing AC7 has on PW is overall level of polish which is a lot considering PW is indie and the development times were pretty similar
>>53545171The later versions totally overhauled the weapon mechanics and polished it up; they added nice recoil, MGs with bipods you could mount on ledges, they even added in the fact that 40mm grenades need to travel far enough to arm. It was just too late; if they'd got it done a year or two earlier, who knows, but by then the HL mod scene was already on the way out, and they fell apart before they could put together a source port. Grew up on that game, miss the shit out of it
>>53558045>FAMAS 2000 (F2000)>Killzone 1 had the chunkiest, meatiest shotgun sound ever>Cool melee that insta-kills everything and you enter a little cutscene too>Killzone 2 removes the funny insta-kill meleeRemoving the melee animation really killed it for me, I liked watching my brother play Killzone when we got it for Christmas but when we got Killzone 2 for the PS3 we'd rather play Halo or Modern Warfare 2
>>53524585>83 is kill>Arma Reforger is going to be console-centricAre there any Cold War FPSes that are actually going to release?
>>53524585Seed of the dead 1 and 2.
>>53544301Well, guess I’ll sink another 900 hours into RS2 while I wait.
>>53524585While incredibly basic visually, and despite the fact that I sometimes want to give the UI physical form so I can strangle it, Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm is one of the most interesting strategy games i've ever played.
>>53558409too painful when it breaks every few days from mods and updates clashing
>>53555588GuP: Dream Tank Match works fine in emulation (I use Yuzu). Its not really WoT or WF though.
>>53524585Squad is ok. Probably the closest to an actual kind of combat tactics sim other than arma I reckon.
>>53561033PW has so many quality of life changes like with the special weapons
>>53549442I mean it is just designed for more simplified rockets realistically.And for that it does pretty good.I love KSP, I just wish I had more RAM

>>53524585One day I hope they make a theatre level command strategy game of the ukraine war, it being the only modern peer conflict. But that's gonna be hell to balance to make it resemble the actual war in any manner at all whilst still being playable on both sides
>>53536216>rainbow six siege?Not really a /k/ game for me, anymore. Sure it's fun but it's not really /k/

Squad, Battletech and MW:O>>53528671based starsector enjoyer
>>53566161Its underwhelming as hell basically TWH2 was insanely large, TWH3 is pretty small and doesn't have that much new stuff, also, immortal empires is only coming into BETA now, when it was supposed to be launch content
>>53566241Glad I didn't shell out 80€ for it then
>>53565438Didn't Seed of the Dead 1 have an NTR ending?I never saw it, played through the whole thing and got to the bedroom scene and uninstalled, it was an ok game
>>53558399I'm not autistic enough to learn how to do naval combat in HoI4 even with cheats or have enough money to play CK2, must be fun to play though
>>53554123No Assassin's Creed
>>53555588if you wanna to emulate, play the best ever tank game for console
>>53558409Zomboid is absolute 10/10, one of the most /k/ games I've ever played and it doesn't even have that many guns.
>>53570415forgot picMP is a blast.
>>53533598life imitates art
>>53544301Does this mean we'll get a fucking bugfix for RS2 now
>>53525141To be fair a Flanker chassis with non-ass electronics, a good radar and better missiles would be a scary fucking plane in the hands of a pilot who spends more time flying than hitting the blini bar at the BBC O Club

>>53524585Cold Waters is kino
>>53568527seed of the dead? the hentai left 4 dead game? i dunno if it have a NTR but it does have bad ends if you loose i think, also the second game does feature legit NTR as in if you spend too much outside the base your girls could get gangbanged.
