I like RTS games on my PC. I could never get a hang of the FPS computer games.

The only rts game I really played was. Halo Wars, which I never really got around to finishing the campaign until a few months ago.

I feel as thought RTS games are only suitable for PCs. Must faster to control troops, move around, etc. etc.
For consoles it's tough because you only have two sticks, few buttons, and that's it.
One example for a RTS console game:

Because I'm telepathic and/or Halo wars is the only console RTS that is decent.

I played it only for the name sake, but I had issues with it. It worked well on the console, but could have been so much better on the PC and without those damn pocket bases.

Actually, I had a lot of problems with it.
Unit limit was too short.
Pocket bases
Too many damn time missions.
Pocket bases
Canon inconsistencies.
Unit balance between the UNSC and the covenant felt cheap.
Pocket bases

I'm still waiting for Dragon Ball Online to open US beta.

On September 26, 2013 the Korean servers of the game have been shut down.

On October 31, 2013 the Hong Kong and Taiwan servers will be shutting down.

So then no beta for us? I've actually been wondering about this game for what feels like eons.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

AH!
And here I am still waiting for the english release of Phantasy Star Online 2. I wanna play that game so badly.

Weird, pc is the only place I can play FPS games properly. I need my surround sound to detect noises and my mouse to aim.

The controller is more fitting for the hands, you use both, it has triggers, and so on. So it's comfortable to use.

On the other hand, analog sticks will never be as accurate in movement as a mouse. To me playing FPS games with a controller feels bad and sad. RTS games also require quick and accurate movements that a controller cannot provide. A point and click game is also a bad choice. Racing games on the other hand are great with a controller. And so are most fighting games.
Honestly, if a developer takes what is essentially a cheat by a third party program for PC games and adds it into a game as a "feature" that clearly shows that console controllers are not the best way to play FPS games. The mere fact that aim assist, and snap-to-target even exist prove that difference in accuracy. That is why I'd never feel good playing an FPS game with a controller. Makes me feel like playing it on my laptop with a touchpad.
It's similarly bad as playing games that have a noticeable mouse acceleration.

Funny how a controller can feel so uncomfortable after playing on pc for a few weeks.

Well i for once can't wait to try out the steam controller.

Okay, I backed Shantae the Half-Genie Hero today, meaning I'm getting a copy of the game with all DLCs included.

And now I'm getting this, no questions asked. Cheaper than getting episode per episode.

I think the concept of warning people about speed traps is weird

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Fri Oct 04, 2013 7:00 pm

Well the idea is to slow people down, not catch them

So if people know there's speed traps about, they'll slow down. Mission accomplished.

They'll slow down for the block where there's a trap and then go back to speeding

The problem is most speed limits are set lower than they should be, yes there's highways that 55 is an appropriate speed in dry conditions, but the majority are fine at higher speeds. People have a habit of doing the speed that they feel is safe, the only time speed limits really need to be enforced are when people are going to fast for road/weather conditions.
