2021.12.02 12:09 CaspianX2 Star Wars: Republic Commando for Nintendo Switch - Review
Star Wars: Republic Commando Genre: First-Person Shooter
Star Wars: Republic Commando is a First-Person Shooter originally released on PC and the original Xbox in 2005, and at the time it was a fairly high-profile exclusive game for Microsoft’s console. In 2021, this game’s visuals and controls have been brushed up to work on modern platforms, with this version of the game ported to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Republic Commando takes place in the timeline of the films that ranges from the end of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and places you into the role of a commander of an elite squad of clone troopers given special assignments in the midst of the clone wars. Throughout the game, players coordinate the actions of their team consisting of demolitions expert “Scorch”, technician “Fixer”, and sniper “Sev”, who despite all being clones each have a distinctive personality and different-colored armor highlights, with this game’s story largely less interested in focusing on some big focal point in the series’ story and more on just following one set of characters through the chaos of one of the series’ biggest conflicts.
Being a game from 2005, Republic Commando doesn’t look anywhere near as impressive as it once did - the environment and character models are somewhat low-poly by today’s standards, and textures are occasionally a bit blurry. However, mostly this game has aged well, and it is helped by a visual upgrade that ensures a consistently good framerate and overall resolution that gives the game a clean look 16 years after its original release, Republic Commando isn’t likely to impress anyone, but it’s not an especially ugly game, either.
While the visuals don’t impress, the game’s sound and music all still work beautifully, with the voice acting for characters and the Star Wars series’ typical use of its traditional sound effects and John Williams-esque score all not only help to ground this game in the universe it takes place in, but also give its characters a good amount of personality. It is perhaps this element of the game that has aged the best.
The controls in this release have been reworked somewhat to better fit modern standards for the genre and modern controllers, though players may still want to tinker with button assignments in the game’s menus. Thankfully you’re free to do so here, though you can’t change things like sight-aiming and crouching being set to toggle and hold, unfortunately. Also a bit disappointing is the lack of any use of the Nintendo Switch’s unique features, with no gyroscopic motion control or touchscreen support here. Still, the game controls relatively well, and is undoubtedly better than the original, so it’s hard to complain too much.
As for the gameplay itself, this is… fine. It’s a pretty standard campaign-based First-Person Shooter, and it doesn’t do anything that makes it especially dated, neither does it do much to set itself apart. Probably its biggest signature element is the squad-based focus of the game, with the idea that players have tactical control over their squad during combat. However, I felt like much of this control was only in the presentation, not the mechanics of the gameplay.
Players are rarely afforded much opportunity to command their squad in any decisive or unique way - usually you’re given designated spots to tell your squadmates to focus on, and based on the context they’ll do whatever the game feels they should be doing in that spot. But these spots are fairly sparsely spaced throughout a level, and they most frequently come up at choke points where you are forced to use them, rather than making a choice that will lead you to victory.
Other times, such as during combat, you can assign your squad to take on different behaviors, but they’re often so self-sufficient that they’ll do their thing without any need for input or a command from you. Rather than waiting for me to remember the command to tell a squadmate to heal a downed ally, they ended up doing that on their own without prompting, and after the battle, everyone lined up at the healing station to treat their injuries without any need for me to tell them to. Realistic? Perhaps, but it made it clear that my “command” of the situation was more of a formality than a necessity
Before concluding things here, I have to point out this game’s multiplayer, because… well, there isn’t any. While the original Xbox and PC version of the game included multiplayer that contemporary critics said was underwhelming, it still would have been nice to have that included here as opposed to the nothing we actually got.
Still, despite the loss of multiplayer and the elements here that have aged somewhat, this is still a decent First-Person Shooter with a high level of polish that shines even with a decade and a half of dust on top. By modern standards, there’s very little about the gameplay here that truly stands out, but this is still a good use of the Star Wars license that’s still worth playing if you’re a fan of the franchise. And if you’re not a big Star Wars fan, it is nevertheless a decent inexpensive First-Person Shooter, albeit not an especially noteworthy one.
tl;dr – Star Wars: Republic Commando is still a decent First-Person Shooter even 15 years after its original release, but not an especially noteworthy one. While the game has aged reasonably well, it doesn’t do anything all that noteworthy for the genre. It’s still a decent entry in the genre, but without its license there wouldn’t be much here to recommend it over other more modern First-Person Shooters.

2021.12.02 12:09 HairaKun Best 4* weapon for Main DPS Mona
Hello! Recently I decided to turn my c0 Mona into a hydro main dps and I have a question. Currently I am using a vaporize team with Bennet and Xianling. However I think that this is pretty hard to activate reaction with Mona (not ult combo). I want to try EC team, cause I think it's easier. The guide said that HR Mappa Mare is even better than R1 5*s, but also said that Solar Pearl is better for EC comp. So, I have R4 Mappa and R1 Solar Pearl. Which one is better? Thanks!

You refuse to give up your online pipe-dream that lives thousands of miles away. You still let another man fuck you. You are, apparently, trying to move further away from here with him. You expect me to be available on your schedule and then demonize me when I expect the same. You have not bent in the slightest. We haven’t even met in person.
Despite all this, you expect me to walk away from the life that I have known for 25+ years. I’m sorry that you don’t understand why I think that’s fucking madness. I guess this just isn’t meant to be.

2021.12.02 12:09 quantinvest This is how long it takes to recover from a bubble bursting
GMO published a great chart on four major U.S. equity bubbles and the Japanese equity bubble of the late 1980's.
The chart shows the damage done when the bubble bursts, and then tracks how long it subsequently takes an investor to climb back to a 6% real (after inflation) return.
It’s typically decades!
Even with the amazing returns U.S. stocks have delivered for the past ten years, the S&P 500 Index has still not climbed out of the hole created by the tech bubble of 1999 (look at the red line).
Bubbles inflict deep and cruel wounds, and it is right and prudent to avoid them, exploit them, or dance around them as best we can.
Spare a thought for all the investors invested in overvalued and / or no profit or even a hope of a profit companies or funds.

2021.12.02 12:09 HppyWfeHppyLfe Dreamed of helping disabled travel
I had a dream last night, very colorful, that I was helping disabled people travel. I was on an airplane and was helping a lady that couldn't walk to. Before I woke, I was in India. I believe that I was maybe working for an agency or something, but it was her that I was there to mainly help. I think she was a paraplegic. There were a few people involved, maybe part of a team. There were also other people traveling that I had interactions with on the airplane. I felt it was a great honor to meet them and be there.

2021.12.02 12:09 mbookey [H] Skaven Army [W] $$$ [Loc] Cincinnati, OH
Hey everyone! I'm looking to sell a fairly large Skaven army that has a pretty good mix of everything in it. Everything is built and a mixture of unpainted, primed, and painted. I'm not looking for any trades at the moment and am really hoping to sell it as one lot at this point. Retail is a little over $1,100, so I'm asking for $825 (75% of retail) including shipping in the US. Here's what all is included:
6 Warplock Jezzails (metal)
2 Rat Ogres (Island of Blood)
1 Verminlord Warpseer
1 Screaming Bell
1 Arch-Warlock (metal)
1 Plague Furnance
1 Plague Priest
1 Grey Seer on Foot
1 Thanquol & Boneripper
1 Warlock Bombardier
1 Endless Spell Set
2 Warp Lightning Cannons
20 Plague Monks
1 Set of Gnawholes
Let me know if you have any questions!

2021.12.02 12:09 MostMoistMike96 Do they not do extras / goodies anymore?
I remember when ordering years ago one of the things that I really thought was cool was they included little extras. Stickers and stuff, one time a lil grinder, just little stuff.
Checking out the sub over the past year it seemed like they were still doing that, I saw mentions of candy and stuff.
But my recent Dynavap order was totally barebones, just what came included from the manufacturer.
Nothing wrong with that, it shipped pretty fast, all in all the experience was about on-par with buying from a verified eBay seller.
But I remembered being really overwhelmingly pleased last time I ordered from PuffItUp, to the point I was itching to recommend them to friends and practically be an ambassador for a store I'd used once.
This time not so much. It did leave me wondering, have they just stopped worrying about little extras? It doesn't really matter that much, I'll probably order again, but the experience and the service of this, my second purchase, definitely didn't wow me and leave the kind of impression my first did years ago. Have things just changed?
