It takes money to make money, and the most effective way to make more is to play the markets.
I've lost $200 in the stock market so far.
The stock market is gambling, I meant the actual market. physical goods, not leaves of paper with markings on them made by the people who actually do the buying and selling.

This is a thread for giving out games you don't want. Be it keys or hard copies that could be mailed.
Please try not to be greedy and if you can pass along the favor.
I don't use Steam but long story short I've got £6.99 in my Steam wallet that I want to get rid of (since I can't have it back). I've been trying to find an artist who will take a steam key as commission payment but nobody wants to do that.
So either if anybody can draw, would you be willing to accept a game (your choice - £6.99 isn't the max) as a commission fee or I'll just buy something for somebody here to give away?
It's not exactly a game and I'm not particularly fond of necromancy but I got the blessing of some higher ups so here goes.
I've got a playasia coupon, 5$ off from orders of 60$ or more (excludes Weekly Special and Season Sales). Pretty restrictive and it's a small discount but hey, maybe it'll be of some use to someone.
The code is

Have a nice day.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack
Rayman Origins (need to be redeemed on Uplay)
Thanks anon. I took Devil Daggers and Runestone Keeper. I would have taken Rayman too but when I opened Uplay I got inexplicably anxious and I also thought that would have been to greedy.
Damn Kiwis... they think they can make a action rpg...
Bad as in low scaling, or were you using gear 10-15 levels lower than you (or 30+ if they are rings.....)?
or did you not have a +20% granite flask with immune to bleed flask to act 4 cruel?
or did you forget to prioritize defense nodes?
Another PoE expansion
Essence league = ez mode league
but, overconfidence will get you and your perfect equipped character killed.
overconfidence or random lag spikes.
i thought lockstep mode was supposed to fix the desyncs... nope. I'll zone into a new map, get stuttering lag where i drop to 0 FPS, then watch everything catch up in fast-motion... lost my 1st character to that in act 4 normal, lost my 2nd character to it in act 1 merciless, lost my 3rd to it in act 1 cruel, then ragequit.
been playing since CBT and never had this issue before. no idea what they changed.Post edited on 20th Sep 2016, 10:04pm
ITT, what you're curently playing for the time being, or just finished, new or old games alike.
As is, I'm on assassin's creed brotherhood myself after having finally gotten around to playing killzone 2, which was a tad bit on the disappointing side, but works fine for a mindless shooter I guess.
AC:B on the other hand is pretty good so far I think.
This game is really something.
That's one word for it.
Yeah, have finished it recently. The music, atmosphere and story are fucking great.
Path of Exile
Anyone picking up Dark Souls in a couple weeks?
I don't have a PS3, so I never played Demon's Souls, but the difficulty and its supposed fairness, plus the great combat made me interested in the game. Pretty much the same reasons Monster Hunter attracted me. I'm watching a let's play of Demon's Souls to get an idea of what I'll be up against so I'm not completely blind when going into Dark Souls. I'm almost thinking of buying a one or three month pack subscription for Xbox Live to get the full experience.
Dark Souls III
Miyazaki didn't produce Dark Souls 2, so 3 is a direct sequel of 1.
Anyone play this game here? Its got some good meme's and i think its fun. a bit to competitive sometimes tho.
callig somethig competitive in no way makes it competitive.
new cod games dont have dedicated servers meaning the game host gets an advantage. "competitive" tourneys are played on consoles, which have autoaim to compensate for the shoddy controls (joystick)
league of legends has "competitive" modes, but the developers are constantly trying to remove competitive features and homogenize the characters to make it easier to play.
even wow has "competitive" arena, but that is just a battle of who would waste more time on getting welfare gear...
20 tick means the server only updates once every 50ms. obviously its that way to make it easier to play on worse computers and worse internet. it severely limits the skill ceiling; it's a low skill game
even the "competitive" mode in csgo uses 60 tick for the servers, but actual competitive tournaments for that game use server mods to run at 120 tick.
tl;dr low tick = low skill != competitive
i mean overwatch was made to be competitive. Even in the quick play option it gets competitive. its a 6v6 team based fps, that alone makes it competitive.
I know what 20 ticks means, but what you dont understand blizzard designed the servers that way because they are brain dead. look it up Overwatch "favors the shooter".
No one is arguing if its low skill or not. but blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive.
>blizzard clearly designed the game to be competitive
If they did, they failed miserably. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun game to hop on and screw around on once in a while, but I'm going to have to agree with the other guy here- nothing can be truly "competitive" at 20 tick. And that's to say nothing of the aim assist, gratuitous iframes on almost every character, and a broken ranking system.
I used to write like this...
With the power of modern computing is there any good reason for turn-based gameplay except to emulate retro-games?
Field a team of assaults with close combat specialist and cheese through it.
Turn-based games are more gentlemanly.
i like turn based games. they give me time to think. i hate games that are kinda turn based and kinda not, like some of the snes rpgs (chrono trigger, ff6). if you're gonna make me wait, dont punish me for taking a while to choose my move! still good games though.
Chess: the Review by Ingmar Bergman (haha!)
Just play it!
I prefer poker

Chess... chess never changes.
Are you excited for the upcoming Pokemon?
They actually revealed 20-something by now, you can look them up here:
Just scroll down to Generation VII.
I play POKKEN
I'm definitely going with Rowlett, but... somewhat off-topic, been thinking of making another thread, but since it might be deemed unwarranted:
What's your all-time favourite Pokémon?
Mine is Empoleon. I like penguins, and its design is so elegant yet strong. Haven't seen yet any other that even remotely makes me rethink my favourite's spot.
I've played quite a bit of it. I like using Gengar since he's a bit different, even if his HP isn't the best and he has an HP degen moves.
I'm going with Litten since it reminds me of Senketsu.
My favorite pokemon is Duskull. Although not really all that strong or decent for the metagame, especially with priority moves being a thing. But I still like its design and it being a ghost type.
World has recently opened with a 60 member tribe limit. Looking for tribemates and allies.
Does anyone else here enjoy mod creation?
I've gotten into DooM mapping pretty recently. I know it's kind of old, but the lack of a true 3rd dimension makes mapping incredibly simple, so it can be done rather quickly and without much frustration.
yeah, why the soldiers don't gib?
on an unrelated note:
Doom HD with shaders and Doom 4 Weapons!
For now I only made mods for Street of rage 2, if you are interested here is the link: http://www.romhacking.net/community/3444/
