So when you have no concrete data to go on at all, how do you decide who to lynch, just pick someone at random and stick to it, or pile on when someone gets a few votes?

Xenophobe, Rampage, Disks of Tron, Demolition Derby, Star Wars (the line graphic one) were probably my favorites.

I also liked Moon Rover

Even normal citizens don't want people to know they are normal or they will be shot eventually.

 saywhat

What kind of Hunter's have you played with?

I meant shot by the cylons, I originally typed eaten then realized that the cylons don't eat in this game.  wasn't implying the hunter special.

OK, Free Lesson:

At night the Cylons will kill someone.   There is No Question about that.  And they won't be killing their own.
Who's that leave?
If you are a normal powerless citizen, why - Oh WHY - would you rather they kill your neighbor - who could very well be Starbuck or Athena, etc???
You being shot (or whatever) by cylons is exactly what you should want.

That's the problem with your focus of YOUR survival, you don't seem to give a rat's ass about OUR survival.


Aha! See, that's the kind of advice I was looking for and it makes perfect sense.  So as a citizen I WANT the cylons to think I'm a special to take one for the team as it were.

This should be quite easy then, I'm Starthenapollo!

I'm not sure I'd consider third person as being the same as body awareness since you're playing third person slywink

I definitely would have joined you. Even with 2-3 people, you can do one of the co-op missions, which are supposed to be a blast. I've yet to play them. But yeah... I definitely feel you. The unranked stuff is a bit better, because you can stay & play with the same people, and over a couple of rounds you get to know people and occasionally hook up with some decent, cool people. In ranked, you get a new party every time. As such, I really think that the FFA gametypes are the way to go if you're playing Ranked. The deathmatch, Mafiya work, and GTA Race are all pretty fun.

Anyway, I'll be on again tonight before 9pm and after 11pm (eastern), and all weekend I'll be around as well.

I'm really sorry I didn't respond to your message.  When I first logged on there weren't many playing GTA IV, and no one was playing MP, but your message caused me to go back and check to see if there were any others who may have logged on while I was playing SP, and I think there were even less available to tempt over to MP. 

For some reason I didn't even think about the 4-person co-op missions at the time, but that is a perfect game type for times when we only have a handful of people.  Perhaps we can even give the co-op missions a try with just the two of us and see how we fare.  And in the process if we're able to eventually get one or two more people in the game then even better. 

It works well for me that you're on eastern time because 11pm for you is only 8pm for me.  I'm not much of a night owl anymore in my old age, but I can certainly handle playing at 8pm. 

Let's think about linking up tonight to play some of the co-op challenges and if anyone else wants to join us we can take on the AI as a team, or if we get enough perhaps we can even venture into versus MP games if we get enough players.   

The MP game can be quite fun even with 2-3 people Pete, just run races or the solo modes like the one where you race to do missions vs each other.

I wish there was a way to do ranked matches and have settings locked or filtered such as no auto-aim and the like.

Nobody is claiming to be starbuck, I was just trying to fit all the roles into the quotes so nobody thought I was seriously claiming any of them in particular.  Just a sad attempt at proving my point that it doesn't really matter what is said this early.  Sadly for most involved day 1 is almost always a shot in the dark where you can just hope to take out one of the bad guys without killing an important good guy.  Though the odds are stacked that we won't get a bad cylon, they are also stacked towards getting a non-role citizen so it's still worth it imo to just guess and pile on.  I kinda wish there was a way to make these games where we'd have a bit more info day 1.

There's an oddity.  You say things that make it look like you have something to hide.  Stuff like that.

Everyone has something to hide in this version of the game.  Even normal citizens don't want people to know they are normal or they will be shot eventually.  There is always something to hide when playing these forum games.  There will also always be something suspicious in everyone's posts if you look hard enough.  I was lynched for being suspicious in a WW game when I was a villager simply because I talked.  Not everyone tries to go all sherlock and overanalyze things on day 1, there isn't really any data to go on until later barring someone coming out and saying 'I'm a cylon, lolz'.

No, but at this point with myself having the second largest amount of votes, it'd be against my best chance for survival to change until someone else has near enough votes.  I'm sick of dying so fast in these games for all these 'perceived oddities' slywink

First game I was killed for talking too much, second for being too quiet.  There really doesn't seem any way to win unless I'm willing to overthink everything and type up charts to distract people.

edit while typing due to new posts:  I'll withdraw Usul and choose rickfc since he was actually suspicious instead of just absent.  Now that I've established my voting as wishy-washy I'm sure I'll be lynched or eaten/shot. lol

I got bored of Rock Band a week after I bought it, worst $170 I ever spent.

Just curious if you were playing with a group of people or playing by yourself.



I've played more with a group than I have solo but I honestly have a better time playing alone. There's no advantage to playing with others in this game, it's not like the computer AI is dumb and fucks up the notes so having human players doesn't provide an advantage. Not only that but during play you are so locked into what's happening on your own screen that you hardly notice what the other person is doing. The Rock Band experience, in my opinion, is highly overrated and I wish I hadn't fallen for the novelty of it's gimmick mainly because the price of admission was so steep.

I have a much better time playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance with 2-3 friends than I do Rock Band and that game was about $110 cheaper.

Well, one advantage to playing with other humans is that they can save you when you fail.  Playing solo, if you fail, you're just done, whereas in multiplayer, someone can bring you back.  The stacking multipliers also lead to player interaction as everyone can save up their overdrive so that everyone can activate it together in order to get a full 8x multiplier.  When I play MP, I'm constantly watching how everyone else is doing.  If someone's having a hard time, I'll save my overdrive so that I can save them when they fail, or sometimes deploy it when they get into the red to bump them back up faster.  If everyone's doing fine, then I hold it until we can deploy it together and go for score.

It's certainly possible that you're simply more interested in action games than rhythm/music games.  If you and your friends all feel that way, then no, I wouldn't think that Rock Band is the game for you, and that's totally fine.  However, I do believe that you're definitely in the minority on finding it no fun and totally overrated.

Not just that, but playing with others allows you to have a real party experience.  If you are playing with other people and not having more fun than playing with yourself, you either need to find new people to play with or you have problems having fun slywink
