  1. That is the guy I'd team kill. When he quit I'd report him for it via X-box's report system. I'd also block him and that would be that.
  2. It's not cheese. Jason has to risk objectives being completed to chase you at the start. I'll often give chase until morph cools down if somebody is in the area. I may chase harder if they said over walkie that they have the fuse or they are carrying a car part. As for staying at the lodge, it's up to you. I often get killed doing that so I split asap. I may grab a shotgun and a map from the mapboard, as well as looking to see what color the car outside is, but I don't linger. When I'm a counselor one of my main tactics is cabin tag. When Jason realizes it's going to take too long to get me he often leaves. As to "fair play" I think that if you're playing with friends on a consistent basis, you should be fair. For example hacking everybody* or using the quick choke isn't needed. A good Jason will still kill a majority (if not everybody) even using longer kills. Playing in quickplay is the wild west. Do you. I assume every Jason is gonna play to win over playing for fun, and that every other counselor is going to kill me or screw me over. *Even amongst pals, I hack if groups try to attack, the guy gloats he has a knife, the car or the phone are being used.
  3. I spend the first few minutes dealing with objectives. Trapping phone and car, breaking doors and collecting knives. I don't chase unless you don't run away from the house I'm at. I had a dude get salty that I killed him after I broke the doors and windows out and he was still there.
  4. If we play tonight, I'll toss a few your way.
  5. If we're all talking shit the entire time we're in the dead lobby because you bored us, yeah, we'll ask you to bring it up a notch. Seeing as how it's usually a core group with one or two to fill the gaps, we run with a gentleman's agreement that we're going to make it exciting for those in the dead lobby. Our games are as much about making it fun as it is about winning. With that, when I played with you and @lHeartBreakerl and the rest, we all had the same mindset. None of us went cheap. It was a good time.
  6. Been alright. Spending my evenings waiting for fuses to glitch into the earth. Nah, my feet hurt. And me in a mood? Nah. I'm always contrary. As for the content, I'm a big proponent of Jason needing to be tough and hard to survive and even I thought the blocking through fireworks and bear traps to be bad. Why bother carrying them if they don't work? This is how we do it. Our core group doesn't like people who do the same thing over and over. If all you do is slash, you won't last long. (This doesn't count if people are teaming up on you or trying to sacrifice to buy time for a phone call, etc) If all you do is quick choke or head punch over and over, you won't last long. Jason's job is to give the dead lobby a showing worthy of watching.
  7. Hm. A 'wah wah, milk and cookies' thread. Joy.
  8. Indeed. It was quite enjoyable, except for the two drops I experienced in the game where everybody killed the level 1 guy. At any rate, I look forward to playing with you clowns more often in the future.
  9. Better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. As far as being wary about dupe threads, they get locked so you waste your time anyhow. Sure you save thirty seconds when you don't bother to research, but you ultimately waste your time because your thread will get locked and fall into the ether where it will never be seen or replied to. However as this conversation you started isn't about the topic, and you're just pissing on Player's thread, maybe you should start a thread about this. Just make sure it hasn't been done before, first.
  10. You have time to talk nonsense, you have time to take 30 seconds to look for a thread. Also you may want to check out your caps lock. It seems to be as broken as your comment.
  11. Awesome stuff, bro! Robocop was the best! It's still a great film to this day, being better than it's shit sequels and better than the reboot by a long shot. I'd probably put it on any top 10 favorite film list I made. I saw both Robocop and Jason takes Manhattan at the drive in. Bad parenting decisions at their best! JgtH was the first I saw in a theater with friends. (Fuck you New Line!) And a lot of our experiences are similar. I recall going to rent films and being freaked out by some cover art and checking Fangoria's at the magazine rack as well. NoES got us the worse. When we were kids, there was an ad on HBO for part 2. Freddy jumped through a sliding door and vanished. We thought he turned real and came into the real world. He was hiding in the room and was gonna kill us. Ah, childhood. As far as turning out ok, I seriously wonder on that. We kids of the 80's saw some heinous shit, but it wasn't daily on the news that we were killing animals, other kids or being outright nutjobs. I have to admit I'm baffled at what changed. I do think it comes down to that while our parents may have been oblivious, they were not absent as far as our care. Nowadays many parents are too caught up in their own stuff to raise their kids. With that, sounds like you're doing alright, so good stuff to you and the wife. Speaking on your kids and wife. I'd say, compromise. Work them up to the really good stuff. Start em' on the Universal monsters and the original Halloween. and NotLD Once they can handle the subject matter, that is when you ease in with the gore.
  12. Woot! I had to do this as well. I'm probably an Adam as far as who I'm rooting for, but I play Chad and Vanessa for the most part when our group isn't doing random counselors.
  13. I'm seeing it as more "I only get two sauces? Can I have more?"
  14. You ever run into a thread and know that weighing in on it will see you banned? Yeah, I just did that.
  15. When you buy a game you don't get to dictate every detail. As far as your example, if the ketchup isn't part of the meal and you expect it free, yes, you are begging. The example is close to that of extra sauce for chicken nuggets. Many places make you pay for the extra. So if Akira wanted to dictate a character, they should have gotten onboard the Kickstarter at that tier. It worked for Kenny, Buggzy, LaChoppa and Adam. I'm a screw off sort of guy when it comes to utter nonsense. No worries. We're all jerks on the internet. It's expected.
  16. One of the definitions for begging is "ask for something, typically food or money, as a charity or a gift." While not food or money, he is asking the dev's to overhaul the game. As far as Tiff, she is fine. She is fast and she is quiet. While you don't use her to fix stuff*, she is in the same boat as Vanessa and Chad. Good at running parts around the map or screwing with Jason. *Though I did once fix the phone fuse perfectly and in total silence, and was able to call the police. Go me.
  17. That's their problem. Asking the dev's to radically change stuff is begging. He wants a charity. There isn't a "problem" to begin with. If you don't like the way a character plays, play another.
  18. I'm in the middle myself. I'm probably going to let my kid(s) watch shit they shouldn't, but I'll temper that. Robocop at 7? No. Maybe 14. F13 at 8? Probably not. Also a lot of it would depend on the kid. If I think they can handle mature themes, they can try stuff out.
  19. Quit begging. Be happy with what you have instead of being bitter over what you don't. Use somebody other than Tiff if you don't care for her. Problems solved.
  20. maps

    I can dig it. I agree actually. Public matches are not the place for those shenanigans. My private matches are unaffected and I'm cool with it. The two-ish people we had pulling shit, we banned. So everything is kosher here. I'll give it a go before I damn it, but I'll be honest, I'm not excited. What I want to hear is that glitches are being fixed (particularly the fuse glitching out of the game) and that Savini is being reigned in.
  21. maps

    Wait, what? Are you serious? Cooldowns not being faster is about the only thing I can think of to even the playing field short of removing powers entirely. Probably should remove traps too.
  22. maps

    My initial gut take is that this is gonna be bad. Smaller maps like Packanack are easy mode for Jason. Crystal Lake with it's size is what makes it hard on Jason. More ground to cover lets counselors get away with more. Unless there are less or no objectives or something else to mitigate the power disparity, Jason's gonna clean house without effort.
  23. Agreed. Last thing we need is this. If the unlocked clothing isn't enough, maybe any perks common or below are locked once you hit 101. That would help in getting better perks. Personally I don't think anything is needed to be done. The game is good as is. We just need bugs dealt with.
  24. That was the one thing.. Shaped explosive charge. magnetized mini explosives. Thrown in general direction and science does the rest. Batman's just tough enough to toss around grown men like ragdolls. They explain the cowl is made up of super hardened Titanium or some such. Also blunt impact is different then slashing/piercing. Take a real life kevlar vest. You can cut it to ribbons, but it'll stop rounds up to a certain caliber at a certain distance. He broke through drywall. Eh. Directors cut was decent, though I admit they tried to do too much too fast. However the Warehouse scene was on par with any great battle of the MCU. With that, I also liked Man of Steel. I think Snyder is going style over substance, but he isn't the worst. If you want to see a truly bad Superhero film, check out 2003's Daredevil. (To tie it back in to the thread) Kane Hodder has a small role in it. Dream scene was another issue with the film. It's certainly not without it's flaws. It's overambitious. Now I want to see Rock vs Batman at Wrestlemania. Or the Rock starring as Rhino, that gangster from the Batman animated series. David Spade can retire.
  25. If you have straight up fight moves from Keaton, Kilmer, Cloony or Bale that are faster, I'd love to see them. Again, I'm not seeing it. Any of it. We had a Batman who through skill and overwhelming force was able to overpower a bunch of bad guys. Outside of the crate grapple throw, I'm not seeing what was cartoony/anime/crap about it. Hell the bad guys got hits in, just to show that Bruce wasn't moving at anime speeds or using toon force. My guess is you dislike Snyder and even when he does something right (the warehouse scene) he's taking flak for all his wrong.
