Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

We don't not have children out of choice, I can't have children naturally and we have been fighting for years for a family - so forgive me if that notion that "if you ever have kids you will understand" gets under my skin a bit. Anyway, getting back on track, you don't have to have children yoursel...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I'm starting to understand why employers don't want to hire mothers, talk about a pain in the ass.. so much time off work for illness, then, trying to bring her sick kid into the office with her?

Re: Mellie's guide to Escape from Tarkov

Massive 1v1 just now on dorms... crept my way in and there was a dude using a laser and was flashing his position all over the shop. We must have hunted each other across that building for a good 5 or more minutes... I eventually flashed him and had him bang to rights... but I'd run out of ammo and ...

Re: EVE Online... Mobile

Yeah it has a lot of potential (there are many MMO-style space games but it's all too crowded, refined down to dots on a screen and you war with fellow dots... like, those clash games or other empire builders and you're in a location where there's just player dots all packed together... completely t...

My #1 wish for this game is that my extract points were the same as the guy I'm playing with
Yeah that can be challenging. Lots of times my mate and I have had to separate and one or both get taken out, but it also adds to the fun I think.

General Tips and Tricks * Hold onto your weapons mods unless ; - they are for US weaponry (MPXs, MP5s, M4s, etc) - these are unlikely to be available to you outside of what you get from your package and they sell for a pretty penny (the US ND-silencer alone is around $45k roubles) - they are for we...

Re: Mellie's guide to Escape from Tarkov

Traders Traders are, for me, the heart of the meta-game. Each trader has certain specialisations and requirements for increasing their tiers. Traders will either sell you gear in one of the three currencies (Euro, USD, Roubles) or ask for items in exchange. The exchanges can be really useful but so...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Most traders now at level 2 and just hit player level 17. This means way more equipment can now be bought which has absolutely changed the game. With a bit of time spent in modding (which is also beautifully guided by the Gunsmith questline you get from the Mechanic) your whole approach changes. AK'...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

The first LiS was such a joy to play, defs looking forward to the next one. Killed a player tonight and took his silenced, foregripped AK and the rest of his gear. Used that to then kill the scav boss (the first i've ever come across) and his two guards (as well as a few other player scavs). Had so ...

Stupid, frustrating lecturer. I asked for more feedback on my assignment and he copy paste's some of what was already written and basically says "read this bit". I already read that bit. Stop trying to avoid actually teaching and do your damn job.
Wow, that is fucking terrible.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Why can't you download the steam controller community configs?? It's a big help. I normally look at the top 5 or 6 then download the one I like best and tweak it a little. There's a few people with the same error. Just simply unable to download. Oh well, gave me lots of practice making one for Batt...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I can sense huge potential for the steam controller but so far... not good. Can't download community configs so can't really take advantage of all the extra bells and whistles without a horrific amount of tooling around. But already, setting up configs are easy and the instructions are straightforwa...
