  1. need a few suggestions for some new hardware

    Presonus makes an interface that looks just like their vsl 22 (which i use) but for half the cost. The audiobox is $99 now from Guitar Center and seems to fit what you are looking for. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Presonus/AudioBox-USB-2X2-USB-Recording-System-1274034489588.gc?country=us&currency=usd&source=4WWRWXGP&gclid=COGLpYzi-8wCFVdahgodl_oL7A&kwid=productads-adid^78244844802-device^c-plaid^140858362821-sku^1274034489588@ADL4GC-adType^PLA
  2. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    Track outline started. Think i'm going to go minimalist with this one.
  3. I like the idea of having an all in one retro game sample library. Something like this, a well made vst that includes all of the major 8 and 16 bit systems, is long overdue imo. I'll admit that it's going to take a lot to pry me away from FMDrive but i am very interested in getting it for the Commodore 64 and Master System samples. The price does seem on the steep side when you consider what other similar vst's have released for over the past few years. I'd most likely pick it up for $100 but going full $150 + would cause me to back off until I can justify it as a necessary purchase. Are there any plans to expand the collection at some point and include Sega's Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color and others?
  4. Guns of Icarus Online

    Game was just updated this morning with a new game mode that makes it tougher for a more experienced crew to stomp the opposing team. VIP mode makes it so one ship on the team is worth 2 kills and the other ship is worth none. Obviously the ship with the more experienced crew should be designated the VIP as this forces (sorta) the VIP to play defensively and prevents that one noobish crew who keeps charging into the fight alone from wrecking the game. Also the rate that the ship falls after the balloon fails is even faster than before making those sudden drops even more panic inducing. Update details are here. http://gunsoficarus.com/
  5. Guns of Icarus Online

    i'll be the first to admit that the games where only 2 people have mic's are kind of stale. Part of the reason i'd like to get an OCR crew is because playing with people you know is a lot more fun just as you said. I'll get a list going, if everyone who has the game or who is about to get the game could say so in this thread it would be appreciated!
  6. Guns of Icarus Online

    If you're anything like me than you probably have a huge thing for airships that may very well have been started by one of the early proponents of these senseless flying monstrosities, Teddy Ruxpin. Much like Teddy Ruxpin, Guns of Icarus Online features airships but unlike Teddy Ruxpin, these airships are 2,000 ton murder machines strapped with guns, flamethrowers, mortars and everything else you would need for effective rage therapy. Guns of Icarus Online was a kickstarter backed indie developed game by the NY based studio Muse Games back in 2012. If you're tired of playing shooters where you are constantly headshotted before you can react and frequently find yourself fantasizing about thwacking an engine with a hammer so that the pilot can maintain a tight turning radius while your being shot out of the sky by up to 3 other ships then GoI is most likely the game for you. The more I play this game the more addicted I get to it and when you have a full team that works well (enough) together Guns of Icarus is some of the most fun you can have. It is not a game of instant gratification however as the community has dwindled lately to the point where it takes a good 5-10 minutes to get into a game. The average is about 200 players playing at any given time but everyone who does play is extremely cool and won't berate you constantly for doing something stupid like rebuilding a turning engine with a mallet. That's not to say that there is no screaming among the players in this game. If both the balloon and the hull are down then you can expect a fair amount of panicked yelling-at-the-engineers as your ship continues it's descent to certain death. BUT! it's all in good fun and never gets personal. The folks over at Muse Games are getting ready to release an expansion to Guns of Icarus online that adds PvE elements to the game as well as new armaments to equip on your ships. The game is a lot of fun and one of the more unique combat experiences coming from the indie development scene. If you don't have it then you should definitely consider getting it for the meager $10 entry fee. If you have it then send me your Steam ID and let's get an OCR Crew going!

  7. RIP Nick Menza

    Just heard about this a few minutes ago. I was a big into Megadeth back in the day and will definitely be mourning probably the second best drummer the band ever had. Menza and Friedman always played extremely well together and made some of megadeth's most successful albums. For the record, I was always ticked that Mustaine never seemed to want to get the guy back in though and went with Degrasso and opted to talk $%!# about Nick whenever he could but dave and co. have definitely fallen a long way since those days.

    Where's the "dislike" button...?
  9. SEGA franchises getting film & TV adaptations

    closest thing would be to watch Air Gear and pretend it's JSR... even though honestly, it's not that close. But yea that seems like an idea that should have happened by now. If anything Sega seems to be extremely late to almost everything now. They are JUST starting to consider releasing remasters Shenmue 1 and 2 after how many years of fans screaming for it AND watching other older IP's get remasters ad nauseum.

    I'm actually cool with it being pushed back a week. This will let me finish up the stuff i've been working on and give more attention to the compo when it starts.
  11. Metal - looking for new music

  12. 2+GB GPU Recommendations

    I only just got the game a few days ago so I don't really know what problems the game has had or how it's supposed to be. I guess there was a stuttering problem that they tried to fix but all i know is the game plays around 10-15 fps for me and i'm running windows 7 with 32gb of ram and the GTX 750 Ti. It plays so bad that, metaphorically speaking,my eyes will start to bleed midway through a round. Hitting a consistent 60fps with other games on high though.
  13. 2+GB GPU Recommendations

    Not sure if it would be a huge upgrade for you but the GTX 750 TI is probably the best bang for your buck 2gb GPU on the market. http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-750Ti-Graphics-02G-P4-3753-KR/dp/B00IDG3IDO I bought one for my new pc and it seems to play everything just fine. I'm only encountering nearly unplayable FPS for Ghost In The Shell First Assault but then again i guess everyone is.

    Seems like it has been ages since i last entered a compo and this one seems interesting. I'm in. Hero Bracket: (would be preferred) 1 [“Final Fantasy Tactics” -Ramza “Theme of Ramza” - “Hero”]. 2 [“Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core” - Zack “The Price of Freedom” - “Hero”]. 3 [“Wild Arms” - Rudy "Theme of Rudy” - “Hero”]. Will update with youtube links.
