  1. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by Lazilot in IGN rate Alien Isolation 5.9...   
    I'm personally a bigger fan of Aliens than I am the original Alien, mostly because I'm a more offensive player. I don't like hiding behind corners while a single alien who's bulletproof, fireproof, and whatever-the-hell-else-proof stalks me throughout the entire vessel while I can only sit there hoping my bullets at least scare him away or he doesn't check in this locker while he's tossing everything else out of the room.
     
    Regardless of my opinion though, it is clearly a good game. The lighting is amazing, the smoke effects are amazing, the visuals are truly amazing and accurately recapture the visuals from Alien but in HD. The game itself is very hard and story-driven which I like, I always hate games that are excessively easy and have no payoff in plot, but this game has plenty of both and if I was a bigger fan of the horror genre I would have stuck it out to the end. 
     
    That said though I really would like to see a good aliens game where I get a independently targeting particle-beam phalanx. Could fry half a city with that puppy... also some tactical smart missiles, phase plasma pulse rifles, RPGs, sonic, electronic ball breakers! Maybe some nukes, knives, sharp sticks... know what I mean?

    The Results
     
    Hey everyone! Our first charity drive was successfully concluded yesterday (Sunday) @ 5pm. We ran a 25 hour gaming marathon with the aim of raising 3000$ for the "SickKids Foundation" via ChildsPlay and managed to hit almost half of our objective! The weeks (and days/hours) leading up to the event were tremendously hectic/busy and despite a few technical setbacks (and a tight 3 day promotional window) we achieved our desired end state: That of a successful charity event that helped generate funds for kids and positively contribute to the gaming community as a whole.
     
    Over the course of the event (for those who might've missed it) we played a variety of games such as Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 'Deadliest Warrior', Payday2, Smite, Castle Crashers, Team Fortress2, BF4, etc. We gave out prizes to people who donated and viewers who participated in our Twitch channel chat (more details can be found on our Facebook).
     
    Here are some comments donors added along with their ChildsPlay contributions:
     
     "So glad this is going to the one in Toronto. My sister is going in there for surgery later in the month, it's really a fantastic cause. I have had other sisters who have been taken care of by Sickkids and they did a phenomenal job."
     
    "I love this project and wish you all the success. This charity and others of the sort all over the world really help making every day more fun for the children, put a smile on the parents faces and make work more enjoyable for the ones taking care of them, I have seen it myself as a medical student [...]"
     
    It was incredibly motivating for us to see this type of response from people over the course of the event and it's all the incentive we need to continue doing these events.
     
    The overwhelming show of support from within the gaming community (and on such short notice) was more than we could've ever hoped and was of tremendous help. On a "personal" note, we'd like to thank all the people (and friends/family) from within the AJSA community who helped us promote the event, who donated, moderated, and who viewed/participated over the 25 hours. It couldn't have been done without your help!  All this being said, we have at least two more events planned for ChildsPlay that will aim for a US hospital/foundation and a EU one along with plans for many more events/charity drives for a wide range of causes over the course of the next weeks, months and years!
     
    Thanks again!

  3. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by Zegers in A somewhat trivial issue   
    Some of the best cases on the market are the Fractal Design R4, NZXT Phantom 430, and the Corsair Carbide 400/500R. They're all relatively cheap cases and pack some pretty high-end and fantastic features into a mid-tower case. I'd recommend those (I myself own a Phantom 430).
  4. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by Bast50 in NEW RUST EVENT!!! RAID THE CASTLE!!! FEB. 6TH!!   
    I've spent the last 3 weeks farming tons of metal to make this (in my opinion) amazing Castle, and its time to blow it up!!
     
    So we're gonna have a "Raid the Castle" Event on February 6th at 8:00 PM EST!! 
     
    Basically we will split whoever is on and participating into 2 teams, Attackers and Defenders! The goal is simple, raid the castle and reach "the throne room". The winning team will get rewarded with my own personal "loot cache" of Ammo/Guns/C4/Metal i have left, it will obviously be split among the winning team's participants!
     
    Please come raid my house!!
     
    ::Edit:: EVERYONE is welcome to this event, new and veteran Rust players. I will do my very best (and accept donations ;p) to farm gear/guns/ammo/C4 to give out to people before the event. 
  5. DJNovaShock liked a post in a topic by TheCalvinator in Botters, Cheaters, and Hackers   
    I was present in game when this occurred and the offending player was banned (as he was indeed cheating).  Server admins will often "spectate" people  with unusually high KDR's. Many are legitimately talented players but, on occaision, there will be someone cheating.
  6. Ozukar liked a post in a topic by TheCalvinator in Divinity: Original sin early access on steam!   
    Yes, the game is currently in Alpha and the studio has warned players to expect bugs and saved game corruptions if they decide to get in on it now (and that it's still a lot of fun)!  I've backed this game since the Kickstarter as well and can't wait to jump in once it's polished and shiny!

    I'd also suggest looking into this one also!

    Check these other out!:

    and

    With all theses resources and a little research time you should get a better understanding of how components work/what they do and put yourself in a better position to start selecting components for your desired build!

  11. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by ScreamingWasp24 in Fundraisers, anyone?   
    We as gamers go through the daily exercise of playing games to have fun and to satisfy our autonomic, competent, and related needs, and to further satisfy those needs we extend our reach of gaming culture to provide for others on a much higher level. I believe with a fundraiser based around playing games on any system, we can further our needs and also the needs of others in a positive way. In other words, if the AJSA could find a few up-and-coming charities to support through gaming, we could better our lives and come closer together as a community, what do you all think?

  15. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by TacticalLion in Welcome to RUST   
    Rust is an open world MMO zombie survival game designed byFacepunch Studios. It takes inspiration from games like DayZ, Minecraft, and STALKER. To survive in Rust you may choose to work together with friends and strangers, scavenging for supplies and building giant bases, or go at it alone, killing other players for loot. Rustaims at being a game that gives players the freedom to play the way that they want, and that doesn't involve a hero and bandit system. With Rust, you will have to use your instinct, not a humanity number, to figure out if you can trust people.

    Rust is running on the Unity Engine. You can purchase the Rust Alpha on Steam. The game is updated quite frequently - and it's changing a lot.

    The game is currently in early alpha. Everything is subject to change. Read through the FAQ's Below

    Alpha access Where can I get a key?


    I've purchased rust on the old website - how can I activate it on steam?


    Game play i saw YouTube videos and it looked unplayable!


    Why was the map wiped?/Why did I lose everything?/...


    Will there be cars?


    Can you remove a built house? Or move parts of it?


    Another zombie game? I am out...


    Performance Does Rust require a good PC? (How to get more FPS)


    Does Rust run on Windows 7? Vista? Windows 8?Mac? Linux?

  16. TheCalvinator liked a post in a topic by TacticalLion in AJSA Offical RUST Server + Connecting Tutorial   
    We now officially have our own rust server. There are many ways to connect but this is the easiest. 
    First press F1 to open up console and then type:
    net.connect 69.39.239.214:28515 Once connected the next time you open up the game you should be able to go to history and then connect that way.

This charity and others of the sort all over the world really help making every day more fun for the children, put a smile on the parents faces and make work more enjoyable for the ones taking care of them, I have seen it myself as a medical student [...]"
     
    It was incredibly motivating for us to see this type of response from people over the course of the event and it's all the incentive we need to continue doing these events.
     
    The overwhelming show of support from within the gaming community (and on such short notice) was more than we could've ever hoped and was of tremendous help. On a "personal" note, we'd like to thank all the people (and friends/family) from within the AJSA community who helped us promote the event, who donated, moderated, and who viewed/participated over the 25 hours. It couldn't have been done without your help!  All this being said, we have at least two more events planned for ChildsPlay that will aim for a US hospital/foundation and a EU one along with plans for many more events/charity drives for a wide range of causes over the course of the next weeks, months and years!
     
    Thanks again!

    The Results
     
    Hey everyone! Our first charity drive was successfully concluded yesterday (Sunday) @ 5pm. We ran a 25 hour gaming marathon with the aim of raising 3000$ for the "SickKids Foundation" via ChildsPlay and managed to hit almost half of our objective! The weeks (and days/hours) leading up to the event were tremendously hectic/busy and despite a few technical setbacks (and a tight 3 day promotional window) we achieved our desired end state: That of a successful charity event that helped generate funds for kids and positively contribute to the gaming community as a whole.
     
    Over the course of the event (for those who might've missed it) we played a variety of games such as Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 'Deadliest Warrior', Payday2, Smite, Castle Crashers, Team Fortress2, BF4, etc. We gave out prizes to people who donated and viewers who participated in our Twitch channel chat (more details can be found on our Facebook).
     
    Here are some comments donors added along with their ChildsPlay contributions:

    When we were all on the UK3 server (with 200/250 + players- incidentally) the whole of the AJSA players were united in defending against/attacking 2 established rival clans (as well as pub groups) who were vying for control over regions/zones/ressources within the game- and we had a great time time doing so together.  Since our brand new server has gone up, there is only "us", which means that in order to maintain some level of competition (threat) people with the community have split into "groups" and are playing against/with one another. That being said, I don't think that the in-game "goings-on" are the product of underlying community "dickeshness". It's quite to the contrary, but in the absence of a full server, other than building things and ganging up against new-comers, there doesn't exist any for form of organised opposition.  It's akin to having full teams of AJSA on BF4 (for example) who compete against each other within their respective teams.
    The competitive nature of the server (at the moment) and the underlying intent/integrity on behalf of the community playership needs to be separated and distinguished.
    It's a fun game and a very frustrating one all at once.
    I'd like community Rust players to bring their specific concerns up to me directly via PM or on Teamspeak and keep this forum thread clean/open for people wanting to discuss the general merits (pros/cons/improvements) of this young game as it goes into Beta (individual "squabbles" are fine, but they do not belong in this thread- take it up in private). This game is as rewarding as it is frustrating and nobody who has played it since Alpha release will say otherwise!

    The only thing wrong with this thread is that it was located in the wrong section. Jenssons, you are free to post your Youtube content in this section of the AJSA forums!
    Lhotse5, I suggest you take a less hostile stance towards your fellow community members in the future (reporting threads you feel are questionable is fine, but leave "interventions" to the moderating team). I also think you should apologize to the OP. Consider yourself verbally warned.
    Back on topic.
