    [PC] World of Warships

    Loving the game. Think they have done a great job of it. By the way, Jingles mentioned that there is no wipe from Open beta to full release as WG basically see Open beta as full release. Tye

    Crysis 3 Digital Deluxe

    I think with origin you sometimmes have to go into the game and then go to and extras menu for some games. ie ME3 with dlc and extras they dont install automatically but only when I go to an extra content menu in game or through the origin page, you can view detail about your game and additional dlc. I am at work so cant do a screen shot sorry. Tye

    OK, so next time you are frustrated with the controls or game play, take a big breath and suck it up. Here is the guy soloing ME3 multiplayer. With a stick. he is getting a big wrap with the players at bioware social, much respect for pursuing his hobbie even with the extra challenges. http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/343/index/14974474/1 I would actually be interested in a little expose by Atomic on some of the less well known members of our gaming community. It makes me smile and feel good to see people overcoming things and having fun. We have talekd about other groups wihtin gaming, why not the disabled . Tye

    GTAV6, if you think you feel like you don't try hard enough to do well, how do you think I feel! lol. I have quit things so often because I couldn't quite master it or it got a bit hard, mate I feel like a down right soft c_ck. I have never heard the catagory tetraplegic? Have to do some reading now. As to knowing whether you can play a game without buying it, I wonder if gaming review mags or websites could have a special comments section in the review looking at just what control scheme is necessary and what level of fine control needed for succcessful play? Maybe a suggestion for Atomic if we can show there are enough readers who have different requirements? Aliali, the rehabilitive function of gaming is not something I had considered. Fine motor and visual acuity, plus also cognitive/neurological changes would be another facet, where gaming could not just be fun but of theraputic benefit. Tye edited, actually just came across ablegamers.com and also had another thought! What about the new VR headset that Carmack? is pushing! That would be awesome for people with some sort of physical restriction. I do apologise too if I use language or terms that are less than correct with reference to disability, it's not an area I am that familiar with, my mate who is a quad just calls himself a "wheelie".

    Haha, doesn't quite match with playing with a stick in your mouth, but I know what you mean.

    Just came across this thread at BSN as I play ME 3 multiplayer and was pretty inspired when I thought about how challenging it must be: http://social.bioware.com/forum/Mass-Effec...14939571-1.html I realise there are things like the ocz headset (being adapted for driving a car btw) and such, but when it comes down to it, could you still play games if you suffered an injury? This guy plays with a stick in his mouth and a touch pad! But gaming seems like an area where really, the technology should be there to allow almost anyone the ability to engage and have fun. It reminds me that playing a game is about enjoying the challenge of overcoming, it is not necessarily about "pwning" others or "dominating" etc. Sometimes just the satisfaction from having got there in the end and enjoying the sheer experience of being able to "play". Anyway, have a 10 second read and a think and be thankful. By the way, does anyone know others who play with extra physical challenges? Tye

    nah, taken from this week with x2. The x3 xp is great though, but I have been having a great run in my t29 since migrating across. Have a bunch of 35000 plus credit games. Tye

    T29-Credits: 56,266 xp 4,598 Was first batttle for the day on the x2 but was a great round. Stuck it to an IS, IS3, Jgpather2, Lowe, T29, Type 59 and M18. These guys just kept pulling up in front and showing me their sides, so I just kept hitting them. It was the wierdest round, I almost felt invisible, like why else woulod they ignore me. Another round in my JP, 41,220 credits and 2,732 XP. Stuck it to a Tiger 2, Tiger, Ferdinand, SU100M1, JP, AMX M4 45. SEA is certainly different to fighting those crafty Americans. At other times I just watch my team mates melt away with little effect on the other team and think, why did I transfer. Tye PS How are you guys quoting your round summary details in the post?

    It certainly wasn't the T95 if it was moving fast, T95 is slower than the Maus. Did it have a turret? Or even better did you get a replay? What tier match were you playing. There is a French MBT at tier 7, low & wide, quick acceleration with a long big gun that hurts like you said. It often gets into position far up the map early in game and then slaps the other light/med fast tanks that get there without heavy support, at least thats what happens to me. Tye

    Thanks all for the replies, particularly dishd, regarding saving to a different location, I wouldn't have considered that. May your next beer be icy cold and delicious. Tye

    Slightly off topic but regarding the transfer to SEA server. I have created an SEA account, requested transfer from WOT, but do I know have to re download the game for SEA server or will it simply log me in, once the transfers got though in Oct, from my current installed game? Or does WOT run two separate game installers for separate regions? Will look too apply to the clan once the trasnfer goes through. Thanks Tye

    Sorry not me big guy. I feel like I still got some work to do before going on to Silver. I got my engi to level 18, running geth plasma pistol and needing more time on bronze to grind up my weapon levels and skill. Would be happy to try a silver with a group, but I still need some direction with my class role. Engi is quite straight forward though. Up for game tonight though if you want to group up. I'm on oracle's friend list. Tye

    I haven't played gold so don't have first hand experience of what is required but many builds and forums indicate you can bring engi to gold no probs. I guess it comes down to how well players know what their actual powers do and interact with other powers to increase their effect. There is a fair bit if depth to this coop wace defense mode. I have had to spend some time on the wiki site for the multiplayer looking at how the different powers work: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_Effect_3_Multiplayer Tye
