Re: Mouse/KB time for a change?

I think that's subjective.
Overload plays well with M&K, but personally I'd like to use a stick. Right now, the demo doesn't like my stick (Saitek X52) so I'm using a M&K.
In the demo, the ship plays a bit more like mouse look than the lilting turn of the pyro of D1 and D2.

Please remember that the game is fantasy and not based on real science. Puma is right, that is what the manual said, that is why I mentioned it.

Re: Ships would never be out of fuel unless designed before

energy centers were for robots originally and any other equipment that needed recharging. Energy consumption is a balancing element. If the robots last long enough that they WOULD need recharging, I recommend target practice before entering the mines again! :mrgreen: So yeah, what Spidey said. :wink:

Re: OVERLOAD Playable Demo

Had problems with a stick. The longer I played the worse the response became. In fact, I couldn't even use it after about 10 minutes.The axis registry just kept getting wider and wider. ^_^

But, as I learned Descent with a KB and mouse, I just switched over. Wish I had the money to throw at them. :\

Re: Once too often

Most of this is pretty common stuff. The meteor on the 31st was outside the orbit of the moon. granted at 600m, I wouldn't want it any closer. The one over Thailand was a common meteor. It probably wasn't that big and burned up in the atmosphere.

It also depends on the games you run too. There are some that lean toward AMD and some to Nvidia. But that's always been the case. AMD is much more stable with infinitely better drivers support now than in the past.
