My recommendation: buy a second hand Dualshock 3. It is pretty well supported on GNU/Linux system and the WinSCP driver makes it recognized by all games you love on Windows.

The D-pad is especially nice for retro games. I don't know if the Dualshock 4 is better, maybe it's more comfy in the hands.

Dark Souls, though I'm shit at it.
Civ 5 and Paradox games, mostly CK2.
Company of Heroes.

Classics are Age of Empires 2 and Heroes of Might and Magic 3.

I'd like to buy The Witcher but I'm stuck with a portable.

>mfw I haven't played anything in months now anyway bc coursework and theory
Stellaris is okay and the new patch should fix some of its glaring issues but it won't be great without serious modding or expansion packs
Deus Ex is required playing

The Metal Gear games are my favourite by far. The stealth is fun to fuck around with, the boss fights are all great and there's a nice story to round it all off. It was actually the thing that got me to consider the cost of nuclear armaments and war. A close second would be the older Battlefields, particularly Vietnam. Lots of good memories with that one. I'm also playing through the old Interplay Fallout games for the first time and I wouldn't be surprised if they become long time favourite of mine. I'm interested in trying some more CRPGs.

Who /combatmission/ here? Recently grabbed Red Thunder and I'm liking it so far. Be nice if the scenarios included weren't so huge; my comfort zone hovers somewhere between platoon and company level but it seems like a decent amount of scenarios are around battalion-sized. Naturally for a wargame set in WW2, most of the user-made scenarios out there are German wank.

Also grabbed the original three games now that they're on GOG for cheap - devs used to have them on their site for fucking $25 each, and we're talking 15+ year old games here. I'd have torrented them, but the devs seem pretty religious about keeping their stuff off torrent sites (either that, or it's just an effect of how niche the games are) and the ones I did find had no seeders. I feel like they still hold up, if you don't mind potato-tier graphics that were outdated on release in the early 2000s.

Sheogorath's court of couse.

What was that? My right ear's been talking to you? Well we can't have that, cheese for everyone!
>>1222
The Thieves' guild is pretty based for a bunch of lumpenproles.
>Skyrim
The Empire. The Stormcloaks could've been worth joining if they weren't so xenophobic, although i've joined them as an elf sometimes. The way i see it, they'd probably be a little less racist towards Mer if one of their leaders and one of their greatest champions was an elf.
>Skyrim Expansions
Dragonborn: The only option is fighting Miraak. There's no choice here.
Dawnguard: You can either join the vampires or the dawnguard. The vampires suck and their plan for Tamriel is retarded. They'll never succeed lore-wise, so they're not worth joining if you believe in dialectics. Sure, you can be a super cool super powerful blood-sucker, but it's just not really worth it.
>Oblivion
The Empire again. You can't join anyone else. The only war going on is between the Empire and Mehrunes Dagon's daedra, so your only option as a mortal is to be an imperial champion.
>Oblivion Expansions
There's only one expansion, and that's the shivering isles. Dementia is better. Mania is just weird goofy shit. Finish the side-quests for both before you decide to become duke/duchess, otherwise you'll never be able to finish the quests for the townsfolk of the side you don't choose to become duke/duchess of.
>Morrowind
House Hlaalu is the least xenophobic great house in Morrowind. House Redoran is sort of a warrior-culture thing, and thus respect strength, but they still have somewhat nationalist tendencies. House Telvanni is the great house of sorcerors, but they're the most nationalistic of the great houses. It's cool if you want dunmeri supremacy in Tamriel, but that's up to you.
The Morag Tong are the better guild of assassins. They're more principled and don't do it for pleasure. The Dark Brotherhood are sadistic and gae. Good thing you can't join them in-game.
The Twin Lamps are the guys you want to help if you don't like slavery, which is a commonplace form of labor in Morrowind. You can't really join them, but you can do a few quests to help them out if you want.

I'm actually a bit too much of a brainlet to play it. I've got a save where i haven't used cheats once, but man. I can barely hit giant rats with my sword, and the skeletons kill me quick. My tactic for fighting thus far has been using destruction magic since it hits as long as you successfully cast it, and i just run into a place then run back out once i run out of magicka and recharge. I might use cheats just to increase my sword and bow skills and carry weight at some point just to finish the game.

Slog through 8 hours of gameplay and then you'll understand. Also abuse the game where possible. Current character is using fully enchanted Daedric Armor with Master Robes with 200 of each stat due to boosting and enchantments and can jump across the entire map in a single step and uses a Daedric spear that has an enchantment from a literal god so that it immediatly boosts my strength to 400 000 and hits the enemy so hard that it breaks after a single hit. Also I have permanent chameleon on so enemies can never physically see me so I run past them at 90 km/h with my 247 acrobats skill.

CHIMiny CHIM CHIM
>>1247
I can barely steal from shopkeepers without reloading saves several times just so they won't see me taking their shit.
>>1248
Don't steal from shopkeeps, they barely have any money on them and dear god are the guards/priests(you'll find out why) tough. Shops sell jack shit anyways and have no money, you'll find the best stuff in dungeons, I'd say go on the wiki and look at the map for all the daedric weapons and armor and go collect them, all the enemies will be leveled but the items will not be so you can get max gear at level 10 (except the chest piece which is in tribunal) and sell everything, SELL EVERYTHING cause you won't need it trust me. You need to steal Daedric greaves though which are in a farmhouse near the starting location, you can find a Gnsis there'll be a small lake with a lady asking for you to get her amulet, look around carefully and there'll be cloaked enemies, kill them and the lady steal their enchanted amulets which have chameleon on them, go back to the farm house, use the amulet, and steal it no problem.

The only shopkeep you'll need is in Caldera, he's in the attic of the abandoned house and has 5000 gold and restocks every 2 days and he buys stuff at max price.

watch a guide on potion and spell making and you can boost your intelligence to over 100 for 1 second, pause the game, create another potion(which is governed by intelligence), and repeat and you can boost yourself to godhood.
>>1245
>>1248
Ok so this be my guide to get buff as shit (quick) in morrowind and basically make yourself strong enough to clear most of the early story / side quests and shit without breaking a sweat

>Build Character however you want
>Steal everything that isnt nailed down in the census office including the fancy silver platter behind the clerk worth 500 septims (Guard will see you but drop it before he talks to you and you can pick it up after without it being a crime)
>Steal everything in Balmora that also isnt nailed down and wont get you arrested (Crates outside peoples houses)
>Snuggle in Caius's bed for one hour at a time until a dark brotherhood assassin shows up
>Steal his armour and shit after you (Finally) manage to kill him
>Get caius to unlock the blades trainers (Will train every skill in game at least up to a decent level for cheap to boot!)
>Join the mages guild so you can go to Caldera quick and EZ
>Sell the armour and any other shit you can to the Gremlin merchant in the old mansion
>Steal the master alchemists set from the Caldera mage guild
>Do the first tutorial quests (Kill rat for the fighter's guild / Kill the thieves in the dwemer ruin and STEAL. EVERY. COIN. AND GEM. THAT. ISNT. NAILED. DOWN)
>Keep getting valuable shit to sell to the gremlin in caldera until you have about 5k gold maybe 10k (if you spam sleeping till another assassin spawns) remember the gremlin resets to having 5k seller cash every in game day so just sleep in the inn opposite his house
This is where that alchemy set comes in if you havent already gotten it
>Buy 200 of two ingredients that have "Fortify intelligence" as their primary attribute but DONT make anything yet
>Buy 200 of two ingredients that have "restore fatigue" as their primary attribute but dont make anything yet
You wont be able to carry all that shit so put it all in some OUTSIDE crates in Balmora or something
>Make 200~ fortify Int potions and drink all of them. this should push you're Intelligence into the high triple or even quadruple digits
>Make 200~ restore fatigue potions each of which will be Uber-Powerful because of how high you're intelligence was when making them

I found that about one stack of these super fatigue potions was worth about 5000~ septims from the gremlin merchant so go back to Caldera and spend a few days selling a few stacks to him again and...Well youve got enough cash now that you can buy virtually any weapon and armour you want / need and have enough cash to pay the blades to train you in whatever you're maining in basically forever
>>1222
Skyrim factions

>Civil war
If you join a side, the Empire is the least retarded one. Stormcloaks are basically MAGAtards, and their war is going to make the empire more vulnerable to the Thalmor, which are the bigger imperial threat. If you support anybody it needs to be critical support for the Empire as national liberation so the elves don't conquer the humans. The most based option however is to join neither side. The edgelord option is to join the Empire to pwn the Stormcloaks and then assassinating the Emperor, which would plunge Skyrim into even more chaos and effectively ensure Thalmor domination.
>Companions
They're mercs but they tend to go for soft targets, and they have overwhelming force on their side compared to normal citizens. They're cops.
>Thieves Guild
The only people with a political theory to speak of, but they go full cynic/nihilst with it. Basically vulgar egoists. The illegalism is largely justified, but they don't bother to try really changing things when they definitely have the pull to do so.
>Dark Brotherhood
They're serial killers crossed with doomsday cultists. The only sane option is to destroy them, and killing Grelod to start the quest is so 100% justified that you will catch no shit from it from anybody in the entire game. If you play the game without destroying them, you are a failure at being a hero to the people of Skyrim.
>College of Winterhold
The main plot is pretty lame 2deep4u shit, but collecting lost books for Urag could actually make a difference to the world by holding back the decay inherent to the TES universe.
>Dawnguard
Since capitalists are metaphorically vampires, and vampires function a lot like porkies, the Dawnguard are automatically based for fighting them. Possibly the closest to genuine pure heroes in the entire TES lore. The Vigilants of Stendarr are too autistic about opposing daedra in contrast.
>Miraak's cult
Dragonborn are automatically more or less on each others' level, so Miraak gets some credit for sending the cultists to kill you the moment he discovers you (assuming you visit the Greybeards right off). Bethesda could have put a little effort into the quest depending on your progress in the rest of the game. Maybe if you'd already beat Alduin and slain the dragon priests and such, Miraak might think twice about sending some cultists to merk you and then waiting for you to trample through Apocrypha before coming to merk him back. Pretty pathetic for such a dragonborn who's lived for ages in the realm of forbidden knowledge.
>Bard College
Pretty cool guys, regularly burn the effigy of a king. They also have a poem that each of them contributes to in turn as part of their career which is pretty commie.
>Blades
Absolute trash, eat shit and die. Worse than the Dark Brotherhood. Useless cunts to the max. They just want a strongman to tell them what to do, but when they finally get you they do nothing but fuck with you, and worst of all they are central to the main plot, so you have to put up with their shit if you want to save the world. They have little to offer but insist on inserting themselves and extorting the hero into making them relevant, and they play LARPy spy games when the Dragonborn could just roll the Thalmor Embassy or sneak in alone. They are pure adventurist thrill seekers claiming to be true to your cause but constantly getting in the way. Demanding you kill Paarthurnax is the apotheosis of their autism. At least you have the option to recruit people who aren't shit so that canonically you can oust the original turds and fix the organization if you want.
>>1245
>go full magic, no armor, stick spec, and every magic type spec
>immediately go to the first big town and join the magic club
This is where I started having fun
>find a flight spell
>every engagement with enemies is now me flying around throwing fireballs and dropping summoned monsters on their asses
>this strategy beats beefy badasses who would otherwise squash me easily
>have a fucking blast
I also later made a ring that charges my stamina slightly faster than running depletes it so I never had to worry about that shit again.

the only thing worth looking up is where the shoes that make you run super fast are
>>1258
Yeah fuck the blades for forcing you to kill paarthurnax, but that was mostly the fault of the woman, what's-her-face.
>>1247
Forgot to mention I also got a Daedric tower shield that replenishes my health faster than any enemy in the game can deplete it. CHIM=Achieved.
>>1261
Also I should note that because I always wacked enemies with my blunt stick while they were surrounded by summoned goons anyways I ended up with that stat maxed by then end without realizing it. Also because my armor stats didnt really matter I just wore whatever gave the best boosts atm so by the end I was a magic hammer wielding armor warrior mage which is both awesome as well as an example of how the game systems are more for fun than strict balancing.

Fucking damn morrowind is awesome.

the best i get is like 30 fps when nothing's happening, at least in multiplayer with little mod content
mostly it's the fault of either mods, bad servers and too high expectations
even expensive rigs can often not get past 30 fps
no idea what it is but heard it's because the current arma engine is ancient and poorly adjusted for modern hardware

that shit was hilarious
i already had people react to arma screenshots and footage think that it's real, and that's without mods
can't wait for what they cook up next
which will probably be complete dogshit now that they went with an alien story setting with the last DLC, maybe prettier graphics
the new engine they're going with for the next arma release is already used for current Day Z Standalone, is it any better with performance?
