    Natural Selection 2

    Ok i spent the weekend on and off the game in between RL actviites and can say im happy with what they've served up. Theres a few little tweaks and bits and pieces i'd like added like ability to hop out of a mech once your in and say stuff like being able to assign players as group 1 or group 2 as Comm so you can manage your players better would be nice. But over all i like it. Havent jumped in as a comm on the aliens side yet but i've played against some sneaky ones recently and the strats their starting to use look interesting.

    Hello Gents and the rest of you, NS2 has launched and it rekindled a love i forgot i had. This game mixes FPS with strad-ga-dee and team work. Had a few games last night which were ok and got me back into the groove of how it all worked and what changes had been made between NS1 and then the beta. Then third game ended up being a huge arm wrestle match between the two sides. Each side fought over the middle of the map taking resources points and key Hive / commander locations then loosing them and regaining them time and again. Watching a charge of massive 4 onos plunge into 5 heavy mechs with support on both sides diving into the fray put a massive smile on my face and confirmed they had managed to bring the best bets from the first game through to the 2nd and refine them! For any interested I suggest diving in and having a go. Be warned at first might be a bit disorentating with what you need to do what certain things are and how it all works but you'll pick it up fairly quick. Last bit of advise - Dont go out alone!! you'll just be a nice snack for the other team. Stick with your buddies! if you alien hide above door ways and in dark areas and wait for them to pass! If your a marine stay at least 5 or so meters away from other marines! it'll give you time to shoot the thing trying to gnaw your buddies face off.. anyways unstructured ramble done! link to game: http://store.steampowered.com/app/4920/

    Yeah it'll prob take a little bit then it will all kind of "click" the one thing i noticed they changed is now aliens also have a "commander" which confuses me a bit but i'll get there.

  10. Hey all, Little while ago i posted a question up about hiking a mountain. Post here Annnd some times gone by and i figured i'd let you know that im booked in and going to dragging my ass up a mountain in Africa in Feb. (leave Feb 2nd) Mount Kilimanjaro is the mountain im going to be tackling and she may not be the biggest in the world but she's pretty damn huge as far as im concerned! I'll be going up the Lemosho Route with the aim of going for the summit on the 9th of Feb starting the last 6 hour walk at 23:00 hours with the aim to be standing on the top for sunrise. Then come back down and go on a safari during migration season to rest and recoup. Right now it's all very much conceptual and hasn't sunk in that im going to Africa and doing this. Other things i'm now having to do is 1) Go find gear!! HOLY SHITBALLS is this stuff expensive!! i've gone to look at boots and for a decent pair it's 350 - 500 dollars. Boots i'm struggling to figure out what i should get but i'm trying on as many as i can to find a good pair that are comfy and give decent support. Then i need clothes apparently layers of stuff to add as I get higher and it gets colder! the words Gortex, fleece, waterproof, quick dry and Vibram have now entered my vocabulary. 2) Start training! I've got a plan! that plan is the building im in is 20 or so stories tall and has a fire escape! i have a backpack that's going to hold some weights and legs + feet. 3) insurance! oh yes! i've rung a few places and said "i need cover for High altitude trekking / hiking above 5000m, helicopter rescue cover (how cool is that) and reparation back to Australia if needed" alot of places go "ummmm lemme talk to my manager then say nope :P though i have found a few who do cover these things but i'll search around and make sure it's a company who doesn't try and screw you around when your lying on a mountain with a broken leg or whatever 4) Vaccination shots - translation - Human pin cushion 5) Flights! I booking flights! i love being stuck on a flying metal tube for 24 hours plus! huzzah! So yeah i'll try and add to this thread as I go along with my prep and training and then hopefully some shots of me on top of a mountain looking all grizzled, tired, manky but happy :) (if you want a atomic logo ontop of a mountain send me some stickers or something!!) So yeah once again i'm happy to get advice on anythign that help me get fitter, more endurance, gear whatever :) Also looking to setup charity drive to raise some money for kiddies and their families so hopefully i'll be able to add a link to that soon too. Here's to adventure! Oh and

    Soo im booked in and going

    cheers dude. It's still all very conceptual to me at the moment. I guess once im there staring the mountain down the words "ooooh fuuuuu.." will prob come out and then the left foot right foot will begin :)

    Soo im booked in and going

    Soo little update. Bought me some boots! them there these boots that go on my feet Took me about 3 hours in the city going to many many hiking / outdoors / mountaineering places to try on stupid amounts of footwear before i found ones that suited my feet. (I don't understand how people can find shoe shopping enjoyable?) Also did my first altitude training session with a trainer in the altitude chamber. They took me to 3500m and put me on a treadmill at a easy pace and easy incline then upped the pace and incline every 3 mins for 12 minutes. I didn't even break into a jog but by the end i was struggling BIG time. Big eye opener for me but i was happy at my bodies response to altitude which was mostly struggling to breathe and stupid fast lactic acid build up in the muscles. Another person was doing their first session too but only made 8 mins on the test which made me feel somewhat better :) So next up is to start getting some of the clothing, vaccinations i'll need and continue training to get fitter. Currently alternating between the following so i dont get sick of the routine: Krav Maga Gymnastics :P (shuddup it's fun and i like being able to throw myself around in padded environments! plus helps build some great strength) Weights Cardio - Running, rowing, steps Planning a few day walks around sydney too to get me going and will prob focus on stair climbs / machines as dates get closer. Should have a charity page up soon too.
  13. Hi Peoples, The old girl is not booting here and there and I've narrowed it down to mobo dying. So it's upgrade time. Looking at getting the following to have her rise like a phoenix from the ashes. All from MSY Asus P8Z77-V-LK - $159 i7-3770K - $335 16G Kit 2400(8Gx2) G.Skill Trident-X - $155 Those parts decent? Or should i move over to the 2011 Pin series? from my brief reading there's no major benefit in gaming etc for me to do that yet. Am i wrong? any suggestions?
  14. 3770k is of benefit to those that do encoding work or for getting higher benchmark scores but if you look at game benchmarks there isnt much in it3570k is great value cheers dasa might pop out and buy it today
  15. So your thinking the i5 is the way to go? seems strange but if so works for me an upgrade coming in under 500 is always welcome :)

    Soo im booked in and going

    quick update. Still looking for gear but also started training. Nothing too heavy yet but im def going to have to ramp it up as feb gets closer. The other bit im going to do is altitude training. By going here: http://www.valleyfitness.com.au/index.php?...on=services.ats and going into a little room where they can simulate higher altitudes for me. That way i can gauge my bodies reaction and condition it before i even see the mountain and hopefully maximize my chances of getting to the top.

    Soo im booked in and going

    Active electronics on a guitar is when it has a circuit powered by a battery to boost bass/mids/treble. Most on cheap basses are pretty basic, but some on the highend stuff get really technical. I'm a fan of the simplicity of passive instruments, just volumes for each pickup (or volume and blend) and tone knobs. Dunno man my old samick with passive pickups is pretty good sounding after 10 years of aging... But going in and picking up a good bass with active pickups is just so damn smoooooth sounding unbelievable how much range you can get out of active pickups!

    Ok will do. Crawling my way around a town with zombies everywhere is hilarious. Reading through this though shows that if your prone your agro range is a couple of meters?

    OK i was running around getting the feel for the game. But i cant open doors for some reason. There some sort of weird trick or chicken i need to sacrifice to do this? Gates get the open / close symbol coming up. But houses apparently need Houdini like skills to get in :P

    Well you bought the right thing then. Have 2 of those evil bastards here i try not to touch them. OOh and if someone else has loaded changes but not committed them they wont show up in the rules. So you'll add a rule then apply yours. But without knowing (nor is there anyway to know) you'll apply theres too. whatever they may be when you apply to a running config. So make sure you take a backup before you do anything every time.

    Dear god those things are either it's fine don't touch it or goes straight to a pain in the ass. The SSL caching is just a fucking nightmare when it spits the dummy.
