    is there some way to get something in orbit around kerbin to stay pointed in a certain direction relative to the planet, like looking directly at it or away from it? The SAS just makes it stay still relative to the sun, I think.

    "target" the planet while in flight, then point yourself towards the target marker on your flight ball. I think SAS will lock on to that the same way it locks on to maneuver nodes.

    huh

    despite slamming into the moon at hundreds of metres per second last night, Jebediah Kerman is reporting for duty as normal for the launch of Dongs Joker-8

    this space program just got a little creepier

    well he just slammed into the moon again a whole 300m/s slower than last time

    which is still about 350m/s but still

    See, that's why he came back. He has unflinching optimism in your ability to eventually slam him into the lunar surface at a survivable speed.

    the buzzsaw in payday 2 is suuper fragile without the perk to increase blade longevity.

    It's useful on some missions, but man trying to rip into an ATM is sometimes quite difficult.

    I took this shot not expecting the spacecraft to explode right then and there.


    You know it's a bad sign when Jeb looks concerned.

    well the good news is I managed to land on the moon without killing Bill

    the bad news is the landing destroyed the primary engine, although there's probably not enough fuel to get back anyway

    I beat Rome: Total War! Completely! Turned the whole map red! Yes!

    Rather embarassingly, the last three cities surrendered, but because of the nature of the game the last battle is never going to be a hard fought slogfest with the best of the enemy's men.

    they could always die I thought, now you just have some pseudo-control over who replaces them? Maybe. Not sure.

    Well since I kept seeing the same ones I just thought that I was restarting things, now it actually seems like they die (as there is a deceased tab).

    I got it too. It's neat, though very buggy, and they're pretty clearly in the bugfixing/add tutorials and flavor text phase. The game itself seems fairly complete, all the stuff around it needs some work.

    well, kinda depends

    the Byzantines and the Nazis certainly didn't surrender their last major city

    It's because of the way Total War works. A settlement can either be a minor town, a major town or three different kinds of cities. You need at least a city to train legionaries, and each level of city gets you a new kind. Each level of legionary is a shitload better than the last. If you want to take someone out then, you get your best army and you roll over their largest cities as fast as you can, ignoring the small settlements. If you come at them from a weird angle they might not even be that well defended, because troops are always massed on their territorial lines. Once you have all their huge cities, they can't field elite units and you can quickly retrain your elite units using their facilities. At that point you're just rolling over them, they can't really defend themselves.

    The tedious part is that towards the end, settlements are constantly rioting or rebelling and having to be recaptured. It's historically accurate, but annoying as shit. There comes a point with some cities where you can't possibly keep them happy and just have to resign yourself to letting them rebel and then killing the entire population so they can build up again. Honestly it took way too long to beat and I wasn't really having fun towards the end, but I'm kind of compulsive about finishing stuff like this. I should stay away from these games.

    It's like the Mount and Blade endgame.

    Once you've completed about 60% of the task of conquering the world, the game stops being challenging and instead becomes tedious.

    Almost a successful landing. Jebidiah Kerman WOULD be missed, but he managed to walk away from the crash site- which rendered the orbital pod into dust.

    President Dubh has assured the public that the mechanical error in the parachute deployment will be solved by next launch.

    Yeah I got stuck doing the same thing in mount and blade. In that you end up fighting shitty game concepts and interfaces more than anything else

    I just played some Payday 2 with Orik, SenorTacos, Melding, and briefly Olivaw.

    That game seems pretty cool, actually. Not sure if I'm sold on purchasing it, but the beta's neat enough.

    Also this happened.

    Unless you are getting massive discounts, it's not really worth preordering. Especially for a digital copy of a pc game.

    I preorder video games when I want to play them day 1

    I don't do it with a ton of games, especially on PC, but I do it when I'm super excited

    When Walking Dead Season 2 is available to order? Bam. Paid for. I don't care if I'd be able to get it for 75% off eight months later.
