Re: It's On - Australian Federal Election 2016

I'm looking forward to this election....hopefully whoever ends up winning can finally run the country. We've been stuck with minor parties in the senate dictating terms for nearly a decade and stopping any government that actually tries to do something. It's neither Labor nor the Libs fault that the...

Re: Feed Dump 245 - Ham Raffle

Once again...ham raffle? We have those all the time around here, it's a prime fundraising technique. We also use meat platters as prizes at the local golf club occasionally.

Meat is always a good prize.

Re: Feed Dump 244 - Marsupial Squad Goals

"Former Prime Minister Tony Abbot", who was kicked out last year and now we go to an election again this year, where we could get yet another new prime minister. Australia has a politics problem, we can't keep a prime minister for more then a few years.

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

For a bit of fun (and editing practice) I cut together cutscenes and mission highlights from an entire XCOM 2 campaign. I think it actually turned out pretty interesting to watch, which is surprising since i haven't done anything at this sort of length before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NLtt0D...

I don't mean to say that you aren't all great fans, but reading @Clypheous's post moved me because it's an example of our podcast being useful, at least in a tiny microscopic way, something I sort of doubted.

I suppose I should bring this up, in case it's not just me. For the last 6 month (might be more) the live page calendar has had the wrong day highlighted.

Re: A Swiftly Tilting Cameron

I think Cam has simply gotten unlucky in his game with such an early base defence. I've only ever had them in the mid to late game when I've had a full squad with reserves. Then it's much easier as you have the explosives or snipers to take out the beacon from a good distance....as well as the items...

Re: A Swiftly Tilting Cameron

I've noticed Cam has been struggling with some of the patrols in XCOM 2, and thought I better mention this. Tests by players on Reddit have shown that if you dash while concealed, patrols will move towards you. This may be why they always seem to be homing in on Cam when he's trying to move around.

Re: The End of Fight the Future

Well I've just got to say thanks for the year of podcasts I've really enjoyed listening to them.

I don't think I had a 'favorite moment' from the podcasts, but the "A boy and his dog" podcast was definitely a high point in terms of your reactions to it.

I agree @DaMage! This was a very cautious, very generic work, seemingly solely made with commercial anciliaries in mind.

Re: Fight the Future 22 - Knights Of Sidonia

I think your discussion about 'why do they have knees' is part of the reason these mech animes never appealed to me. Way to much of 'everyone does it this way, so we'll do it this way' regardless of if that makes sense or not. Everything you talked about seemed to be a cliche of the genre, young ups...

So, with the new XCam streams, I've started tracking all the hit percentages again... trying to empirically answer the question of whether the UI lies on impossible (which the chat seems to take on faith a lot of the time).

Re: The Game Venting Thread

As anyone who has ever played Xcom, or watch Cam's streams of it you know how things can turn quickly. I have to share this game-ender that I just had. Was having a good play-through, had a deep (though injury prone) roster, 6 squad members unlocked by middle of second month, along with laser rifles...

Re: A Swiftly Tilting Cameron

Got to say it feels good to see Cam playing XCOM again, his reactions to when things go bad, or he just gets super lucky, is just prime viewing experience. Really looking forward to him tackling XCOM 2 when it comes out, as it seems to fix most of the problem he has with XCOM 1.

One thing I noticed when you were talking, you mentioned the power going out as if it was a rare event. Maybe it's just where I live, but in storm season we regularly lose power, sometime for half a day or more.
