I've had a basic MS wireless mouse for years.  Have to replace the battery about once every 4-5 months and have never noticed a latency difference between wired and wireless.  Y'all are apparently far more hardcore about your gaming than I am.  smile

I briefly used an MS mouse and it had a very perceptible lag every now and again, so for instance I would move the mouse to the end of the screen and it would miss a small chunk of that movement. No issue for normal working but an absolute no brainer for games. Wireless mice and wireless routers have very little in common smile

Going slightly off topic but I'm not aware of a wireless mouse that doesn't suffer lag in fps games - am I wrong?

Till they sort out the server shards I will be playing soley on Texas server

84  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Frozen Synapse - stunning-looking indie turn-based tactical game on: May 29, 2011, 03:58:22 PM
The MP works imho because it's turn based and you can play your turns as and when - i.e you don't have to be connected for your opponent to make a turn. Where it is failing is the server/popularity is just not currently capable of handling the load. They have a number of calls they make - do it correctly and it could be a stayer - do it wrong and it will rapidly fail
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Frozen Synapse - stunning-looking indie turn-based tactical game on: May 29, 2011, 07:06:12 AM
I think they get how steam worked - ie by releasing a load of steam keys on steam it would suck people in but they missed how huge steam is. I'm more confident than say with magicka that this dev will resolve issues
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Frozen Synapse - stunning-looking indie turn-based tactical game on: May 28, 2011, 06:27:28 PM
It wasn't adding - every time I search for harkonis it fails and I tried it from match history and that didn't work frown
87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Frozen Synapse - stunning-looking indie turn-based tactical game on: May 28, 2011, 09:42:32 AM
I had totally forgotten this is a turn based game which is played over time rather than real time - a preoder I am proud of smile

Add me tals - you won't be sorry I tend to be rubbish smile

I've being doing this for the last few days and its very well done. The screens show the full chat log with the player concerned listed in purple. It shows any report text as well as the players end items, score and other stats like play time. You also see 10 games the player has been reported on. Tbh I've been appalled at the level of behaviour of the players whp have been reported. The only thing I'd like to see added is a vote for the degree of punishment. One surprise is you do see the actual player names

I'd be interested to hear comparisons with shift 2 - love racing games but generally only play one at a time and shift 2's autolog feature is very good

Is anyone still playing this game - did they change the skin model to buy rather than rental?

The current plan is it will cost $15 for beta access.  This will let you play the beta as much as you want as I update it over SpyPartyís development, and also get you a copy of the finished game when itís released on PC.

So it's effectively an early purchase.  That might be actually viable.

A filtered early access, ie just signing up doesn't get you in - I assume the dev is just doing it as a normal queue.

Signed up, still not sure but I am intrigued
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Brink on: May 11, 2011, 05:48:05 AM
Game has gone from number 1 on steam to out of top 20 - I guess word gets out quick...

Finished this last night, it didn't disappoint at all but I did find the final level confusing. Looking forward to the dlc - now just need to find buddies for the coop

Thanks Ash (and Tokek) for your very quick responses. Daughter is now very happy, was feeling unloved seeing me playing it smile

Bearing this in mind i'm just going to leave cogs running in the background. Small app but hopefully adds to the numbers smile
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Portal 2 - Now invading other games! on: April 16, 2011, 06:50:50 AM
Looks like I am wrong

Quote
I just thought I'd mention that some of the numbers go DOWN. Just now, Rush was 585 and cogs was 778, then I refreshed the page and RUSH changed to 550 and Cogs to 739.

If its just measureing number of people who own the game, or number of hours the game has been played, it wouldn't go down.
98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Portal 2 - Now invading other games! on: April 16, 2011, 06:37:07 AM
I actually think its copies purchased ... I could be wrong but I played cogs which was one of the low ones and the cpu value didn't change

So besides this random air attack thing, how are you guys liking the game so far?  I need more impressions to push me over the edge.  smile

I'm on mission 10 so I have a reasonable idea of the game. The first level Bagdad (up to level 6) was a lot of fun, relatively straight forward and not to much strategy except at the end. Tokyo is a different matter missions are way bigger and they add triggers into the pot so if I trigger a sentry gun then further down the way a timer starts ticking.

However its great fun, certainly easily worth the price of admission and the story whilst not A+++ level is good. I'll be getting any dlc that comes out on this title. My only bug bear is you can't save part way in a mission so whilst I am playing you can restart to the previous check point but if I need to leave I have to redo the mission. But its not a huge issue for me as I am enjoying replaying the missions
100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anomaly: Warzone Earth on: April 13, 2011, 11:17:42 PM
You sure that's not when your troops have been turned so attack themselves?

Those "air attacks" are your supply drops. They leave behind more repair packs.

-Lyno

no, not those, the strikes that actually damage your units that come from nowhere.

Hmmm i'm not sure I know which ones you mean?
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anomaly: Warzone Earth on: April 13, 2011, 04:55:07 PM
lol Ceekay - I did wonder what you were talking about. More play time for you methinks smile

I'd agree re the routing but that is part of the strategy imho. Also I would say treat Bagdad as the tutorial so it is very easy and very clear - it gets far harder and more challenging smile

Shift key to move your units faster - but the 'tutorial' covers that a little further on from where you are smile
103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Anomaly: Warzone Earth on: April 13, 2011, 05:58:18 AM
I'm past the first episode and now onto tokyo and wow the difficulty ramps up massively. Well worth the purchase imho
104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Portal 2 on: April 12, 2011, 11:19:25 PM
When is it officially available?

You mean this game?

That's the one, I thought Ceekay would have pimped it but couldn't see it for looking. I guess this thread is more relevant having someone who has actually played the game though  eek
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anomaly Warzone Earth on: April 12, 2011, 11:52:06 AM
I've been playing this one over the last few days.

http://www.anomalythegame.com/

They've done a good job imho. It's basically a reverse on the tower defence style. Whereas rather than being the defenders your job is to get through the defences. You can decide the routes and change these on the fly as well as the make up of your squad which again can be changed as you get more money and you have some powerups like smokescreen/health etc to add to the strategy.

Nicely for an indie game the story is quite strong and adds to the enjoyment. All in all recommended - hope they add some dlc content as I like this style of game

I was thinking of trying this, but seeing as it's 30 bucks I'll probably go with LoL instead.

They are quite different. LOL is more team based, Hon is team based but individuals can have a greater affect. As LOL is easier to understand I would definitely recommend that first and it's F2P - and genuinally so
108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: League of Legends - Free to Play on: April 06, 2011, 08:49:11 PM
It's one of the reasons I set up a community for players to join in. EU wise we have around 15-25 players on every night. QT3 or GWJ both have mumble servers for US as well.

If you need the EU details let me know
109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: League of Legends - Free to Play on: April 06, 2011, 10:57:07 AM
That is very interesting. That money was raised through the sale of 1 skin

This game looks cool and all but after watching the last video it hit me, this should have been released around 1999. It just seems like a 1999 era game but with much better visuals.

As a side note..I do not think I have the skills any longer to even attempt this game.

Trust me as a 43 year old gamer you do have the skills smile  The heroes that you use are pretty varied from ones that require very quick reactions to others that are more sedate. I'd recommend either a tank to start like Malphite who soaks up the damage or a ranged character like Ashe.

Been playing this since January 2010 and still put in an hour or two each night. For US QT3 have a mumble server setup by Bunny fro EU (Andramalech and I play on) then let me know and I have the details. We have between 15 and 25 people on most UK nights smile

Played this on and off after I picked it during the end of year sale. Love the leaderboard tracking even though I have no hope of cracking the top levels. Those times are crazy but didn't appear hacked either.

Some of the videos in nimbus-world gives an idea how some are done. For instance I hadn't appretiated that going on an escalator twice speeds you up more than just once slywink

Click against one showing a video

Very clever site imho

The devs blog is quite interesting on starting up an Indie game company

This is currently half price on steam (£2.50!)

Great puzzle game where the mechanics is basically controlling your ship through various levels with gravity as your momentum smile

Actually my mission complaint I think has been a bit false  Roll Eyes I wasn't paying attention to the units availeable - I had thought they were per region but they are what you get so when you have duff units hit the easier missions smile

Yes I think he is a one man band. I restarted the campaign in 1.62 and certainly I have taken 2 territories out of 4 so far so it's going well. But could just be the randomness falling on my side smile
