Re: What are you playing right now?
I once thought I'm a good player of strategic games, but turned out I'm kind of a "Def as long as possible and then steamroll them", which is not working in WG:EE.
I realy love the game, but I'm to dumb...

I think some of the primary takeaways I have are as follows:

Recon is paramount.  That column of APCs driving around the outside of the map to show up at your spawn?  Without Recon you won't stop it.  Even just a MUTT and a pair of TOW Jeeps can stall an enemy advance long enough for you to react.  Plus if you want to make an advance knowing what you are going to run into makes all the difference between a successful thrust and losing your force.

Armored CVs, you need them.  A Sultan, VAB or BRDM can stick it out if there is some arty and can book it when you need to give ground.  A mouse farts at a Jeep and it will blow up, plus it can't run away from molasses.  Funny enough I've seen people who really should know better still using Jeeps.

Don't send expensive **** into infantry occupied forests.  I had two Fuchs with Jagers in a forest with a logistics truck my opponent sent in three Hinds and two platoons of T-64s and the Jagers smoked the lot of them.  At knife fighting range in a forest a T-80U or M1A2 will lose to the cheapest infantry unit.

Get the most out of the cheapest stuff and husband the expensive equipment.  Sure the Havoc or Leo 2A4 has stats to die for but they need to kill quite a few things to make back their points.  In the meantime if it gets killed first then your in the hole a hundred plus points.  A TOW Jeep and Milan F2 squad costs peanuts if they kill a T80U and they've earned their cost three time over.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I'm getting back into EVE again, what with having joined an alliance with my small corporation and all.

Managed to get podded twice over the weekend trying to get to the home system, then decided to check my route's sovereignty BEFORE clicking on the nice jump button so i don't find out i'm in the wrong system too late xD

Turned a 20 jump journey into 55 after avoiding only 2 systems xD

 
Re: What are you playing right now?
I'm kind of between PC games right now. Playing Planetside 2 and MWO when I feel like it, but I have the urge for a good MMO or RPG. I don't feel like dropping the money for Guild Wars 2, Fable 3, or Skyrim atm though.

Also, Fire Emblem: Awakening

Re: What are you playing right now?
bioshock 2.  not a whole lot of change from 1.  i like the mele option (with guns, the drill sucks), but having both that and plasmids has made it such that i still haven't made a control scheme i'm comfortable with.  if using sights was actually all that important, i'd be in real trouble.

also, **** big sisters.

Fatal Frame 1... again.

Never quite finished it because I got stuck on a hard boss. Welp, just passed that boss and only have the final one to go.

Then I can say I've beaten it and I'm never playing it again... the guy who programmed the controls was an idiot, makes the game a lot harder to play than it should be.

Re: What are you playing right now?
Finished FSport last night - I have owned Freespace since 1999 yet have never finished a campaign before!  Doing Operation Templar and Silent Threat: Reborn next, then on to the Freespace 2 main campaign and beyond.  I still play a lot of C&C3: Kane's Wrath skirmishes when I just want a quick fix.
Maybe someday God will give you a little pink toaster of your own.

Re: What are you playing right now?
I am playing Windows Solitaire (Win7 version) for some reason (possibly because I can't play "real" games due to my S and D keys popping out all the time). I can feel my brain atrophying...
