31  Community / Off-Topic / BURNING PATRIOTISM 2014! AMERICA!!!! on: July 04, 2014, 08:21:41 AM
Today is the day we of the great North American country known as America celebrate our rejection of British tea and tax practices.  We shall celebrate this day by burned food slathered in specially processed sauce, downed with gallons of caffeinated sugar water, followed by going "ooooh" and "aaaaah" when someone finds the explosives.

But for now:

Happy American Patriotism Day, everyone!

Man, sudden I want to play Bioshock Infinite.  While watching the most Patriotic Marvel movie: Iron Man.

Civ: BE E3 Gameplay demo

Includes how the leaders will change depending on affinity, as well as a possible peak at two more factions (hint, it's in the covert ops city list).

Confirmation that, yes, Superman will be in the next Superman movie, just in case anyone was worried.

Wait.

Faith-based contractor groups -we're really close Grin

Just give 'em SUSTAIN and you are good to go.

What, you thought that drop pod scene in the new CoD was science-fiction?

Quick Amendment: It's the United Austrian Order, not German.  For some reason it makes more sense in my headspace if we go in that direction.

Added qualities:

Catch Phrase- And I want it to be shouted like you are hard of hearing.
Red Lasers- The red makes the lasers go faster, after all.
Bulletproof- You think you got time to bleed, soldier?  Get back in there!
Big Budget- BIG GUNS, BIG ARMOR, BIG CARS, um, BIG GUNS...
Blockbuster- ...BIG EXPLOSIONS!

And now I got to go and try to balance the XP books...

I'm not quite sure what is going on here, but I'm interested.

Madness, my friend.  In fact, one could say... Perfect Insanity.  And it will be awesome.

Yeeeeees, I think I know what I'm doing.  I think.  NO!  I KNOW!  Yeeeeeeeees.  I know...  Aheheheheheh.  Evil

Rus - I'm only saying this because I care - there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

What you talking about?  I am on the decaf.

And I quote myself, "guns so big whole ecosystems emerge in the mountains of spent brass they leave behind."

And weather patterns are formed from all the yelling you do while firing them.

But yeah, this is going to be heavily inspired from all those heavy metal space marine first person shooters of yor.  Y'know, all the single-worded ones made by Epic and id.  Doom, Unreal, Quake.  Even the more modern ones, like Rage and... Alien Rage (which technically isn't Epic or id) and Gears of War (which isn't single-worded).
And, of course, the Terran faction of StarCraft, because the whole idea really got rolling after I saw Sgt. Hammer's WarWorld 3 skin in Heroes of the Storm.

The Setting

Alternate history Earth, set in the "modern" day of 201X, and the world is currently on the edge of a worldwide war between the United Coalition and the Crimson Federation.

The Coalition, the good guys, are made of countries that are roughly in the same areas of current western powers:  The North American States, the Celtic Kingdom, the United German Order, the Southeast Asian Alliance, Australia, etc.

The Federation, the bad guys, are dirty lowly commie fascist scum of dirty commie fascism, and are mostly run by Slavicistania and Chindonesia, with help from Cubastan and Antarctalvania.  Yes, those are the names.  I typed them down and everything.

Players are soldiers in the United Coalition on one of the multiple military fronts.  The way I have this campaign going in my head, they do not need to be from the same outfit, as they are specially recruited for a special mission.  They do not even need to be from the same country, since these armies are completely international.

Current requirements:

"Only man endures"- All PCs are humans.  No fancy species here.
Ranks- I'm going to keep trying to use these, dangit.
Gunmen- And I'm going to keep using this campaign quality, dangit.
Basic Classes- I want to try these out...
Stockpile-...though I might need to use an alternate gear system.

I'm still working on the rest.

By the way, I don't think spellcheck works if you caps lock.  Just thought I'd mention that.

Valiant Hearts is a fairly serious game about WWI, but that doesn't mean that it can't have humorous moments as well.  It helps when one let's player decides to sing along.

That's it!  I'm done faffing around!  I boil with hot blood, and the BURNING RAGE, a RAGE that can only be doused with EXTREMLY EXAGURATED COMPLETLEY UNREALISTIC WARFARE!!!!
This is not your so-called modern warfare, maggot!
We do not wear Kevlar here.  WE WEAR ARMOR PLATING!!  THAT SOMEHOW FITS THE FEMALE FORM RATHER WELL!!
We do not carry little fru fru plastic guns that are all ergonomic and covered in rails.  WE LUG CHUNKY LUNKY HUNKY THAT'S-GOT-TO-HAVE-KICK LEAD POUNDERS!!  (Though they still inexplicably use the same stats Tongue )
While current military vehicles are quite tough, OURS MUNCH THEM UP, THEN SPIT THEM BACK OUT!!
And our aircraft?  No frilly UFOs here, BUT TRUE DEATH FROM ABOVE!!
This isn't sneaky back-stabby blacks ops in a morally ambiguous world, THIS IS TRUE NO-HOLDS BARRED COMMAND AND CONQUEST WORLDWARCRAFT, WITH ENTIRE ARMIES BETWEEN US AND THEM CLASHING THE PLANETSIDE!!
AND BELTS!!  LOTS AND LOTS OF BELTS!!

AND*SSKSWKKRRRRR* Ack!  I think I burned out the micropho......

Been meaning to do this for a few weeks now, but...

Sometimes music is inflicted upon you.

When that happens the only thing to do is inflict it on others.... Tongue

(I got it from my girlfriend, who got it from Scandinavia and the World....)

The Auld Grump

Would you believe the number of metal covers of that song?  Seriously, type "What does the fox say metal" in on youtube.  My personal favorite's mostly an instrumental take, since most people can't seem to resist yelling the weird bits.
