Make many hatcheries fast and produce mass waves of hydralisks. Nothing better than that. The name of the game with zerg is numbers. Overwhelming numbers. The hardest faction to get good with, but definitely one of the crazier ones. Good to see your having fun. Also I remember the cheat codes by memory for that game. haha.

after pressing the enter key type:
show me the money-it gives you craploads of resources
power overwhelming-god mode
really those are the only two I remember. Try not to use those unless you really get hung up on something.

Can't for the life of me work out a way to beat Zerg Mission 3 - my Mutalisks are getting shredded by Marines, my everything else is getting obliterated by siege tanks, and trying to hit with combined arms is just resulting in both wings getting crushed.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Really upgraded fast zerglings in numbers can overwhelm a couple siege tanks. Also if you get the greater spire building you can morph mutalisks into guardians. You probably cant yet. I played this multiplayer more than anything though I did beat the campaigns a few times.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Anyone play Neverwinter on PS4?

Any suggestions for multi-player PS4 games? Looking for something like Marvel Alliance for original X-box

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Sorry, bud, playing Neverwinter on the PC. Still at it, and I've recently had a breakthrough with my power level. I got the River District main hand and offhand for my Great Weapon Fighter, and a few other other items of similar near-endgame quality. Anyone playing on the PC, on the Dragon shard, shoot me a PM and I'll help you out. Or you'll help me out, depending. Or both.

@Raider30 was not playing on the PC, IIRC. Might have been on a Playstation.

I was on Xbox playing for a fair amount of time though to be honest I hit the same wall I always seem to hit for mmorpg's - the repetition got to me. But also in this case the sheer amount of items to collect was overwhelming. I just got to a point where I didn't want to keep up with it all. Haven't played in 4-5 months I don't think.

Been playing Titanfall 2 mostly whenever I have a few minutes, though even that has been sporadic this summer with how busy we've been.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Years ago I had the game Onimusha 2, and recently I got Onimusha 1 & 3. Some great early 2000's PS2 games. While playing Onimusha 1, I came across the enemies known (informally, I think) as Reynaldos. When you kill one, it sometimes splits in half and forms two Reynaldos, which then might split in half again. Are you thinking what I'm thinking, or am I crazy?

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

Got to playing fallout 4 again a couple of weeks ago when I was sick. Does anyone else just go about making your character the craziest leveled machine of destruction like I do. It got so easy to kill bad guys I went all the way to survival mode difficulty. Ultimately had to come back down to very hard difficulty only because of the annoyances that come with survival mode that slow things down. Very addicting.

Re: What Video Game are you Currently Playing?

I recently played through Banner Saga 2 - best game series I've ever played, amazing storyline, fun mechanics, great characters, and narrative choices that leave you muddling through as best you can just as the characters are - highly recommended.

Fortnite Battle Royale. Every night. I have a problem. PS4 AnubianWolf ... if you wanna be friends!

Seriously, fun game that's just silly and chance oriented enough to make me play for hours

I recently installed this on the PC because my 14 y/o has been enjoying it on his PS4. I have only had the chance to play a few rounds so far but I think that this is one I could get into. Dropping 100 people in to an ever shrinking Hunger Games-type arena is just a cool idea for a shooter.

Great trades with Onacara, Gypsy, SirGalahad, elltrain, generalgina, Concord, Just_a_Bill, LongHeroscaper, janus19390, and the very generous obfuscatedhippo.
