121  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ice Cream Sandwiches and the troubles they cause. on: February 17, 2014, 06:16:19 PM
AC/DC is likely going to start recording a new album in May and will likely do a 40 city tour to celebrate 40 years as a band.  I haven't bought an AC/DC album since Razor's Edge in 1990...but I haven't ever seen them live.  I will have to find a way to see them if this tour comes together.


Saw DIO On tour with the scorpions and deep purple a few years back..not long after that he got cancer and sadly died from it.  It wasn't him in his prime, but at least I can say I saw him.
122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Going Full Rechargeable? on: February 17, 2014, 01:59:18 PM
Heard a lot of buzz on eneloops and have given them a shot for my XB1 controllers as it seems to eat batteries faster than the 360 controller did.

So far so good.

That's got me thinking of maybe going all eneloops all the time.

Anyone using solely rechargeable batteries?

Any draw backs?

Are there any common devices (smoke detectors, flashlights, etc) that shouldn't use rechargeables?

Still SUPER early, but after about two matches, I'm not seeing the appeal.

Titans just feel like an underpowered bullseye for everyone to concentrate fire on and the fact that you get them every two minutes kind of minimizes the 'specialness' of it.

How do you get a pilot who is rodeo damaging you off?

Usually, betas send me the opposite direction from purchase...so I'm not fretting too much if i don't get one.


Would love some real people impressions though.

There's a new trailer out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_HEeHUmzjI&oref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DL_HEeHUmzjI&has_verified=1

Some of it seems decent, but other things make me scoff or laugh. Mostly its the violence approach I guess. One of the things that was unique to thief was the horror of being discovered. If the guards found you, you had to be lucky to escape with your life. Here, you can just kill everyone and be done with it it seems. That takes away a great deal of the tension. Imagine Cradle level where you could just slaugther everything - fun? Not really.



That's the trailer that Ron posted yesterday.

Its new to this page of the thread though.

No, it's not.

Like many, I've been nervous about this new Thief.  At first because it was going to be some futuristic thing, then because it was supposedly more action-oriented and most recently because of reports that it was all small spaces with little choice about where to go or what to do.

I have to say that trailer would only feel more like Thief if someone called Garrett a taffer.  That doesn't mean it'll be good, of course, but I'm certainly more interested.  That said, I do hope they maintain the rich world with its steampunky feel and the various factions (Order of the Hammer and whatnot), even if it's evolved in time slightly.

I'm a Thief purist.  I'll be making sure this game is "Thiefy" enough before you have to put down your cash.  

I wonder how many reviewers will savage this game because it's not "Thief-y enough" as compared to the previous entries in the series?    Even if it's a solid game in its own right (which remains to be seen), I suspect there are lots of folks who will be judging it against the other titles instead of reviewing this game on its own merit.  Can't imagine it'll fare well through that lens.
Hmm.

I suspect I'll have to get it sight unseen then so as not to let that impact my play experience.

Titanfall on the PC will require Origin   I know EA  has made Origin better, but I still refuse to download it... 


Anyway, I'm buying digitally from MS anyway

You're buying the Xbox One version digitally?


Sure, so am I.
I think you missed his point

I'm still missing it  retard

He's going to have to deal with origin regardless of where he DL's it.

When I got BF4 it created an account for me...sooooooooooooooooooooooo probably ditto for Titanfall.

Looks like I'll be a dope and get the next game, but will I be lost without playing peacewalker on the PSP (I've read that it happens before...or right after or something) ?

I have PW, but my PSP power cord has vaporized and the thing is dead dead dead so no usb charging for me.

Seeing as I bought this stupid game twice and have only played the SP, perhaps I should make a concerted effort to play in February.

The MP is AWESOME, man.

Oh and I hate the shortcut bundles...

It's awesome if you have a squad of friends. If not it can be a little frustrating.

I dunno, I play in squads of random people most of the time and still manage to have lots of fun.  To each their own, I guess.

It's definitely more fun with friends, but I'd say 95% of my time is solo and I love almost all of it.

150  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Amazon To Start Charging Tax In My State on: January 28, 2014, 01:59:33 PM
(Feel like there's an amazon tax thread somewhere but can't find it)

Beginning Feb 1, Amazon will start charging sales tax in NC.  We join 19 other unlucky stupid states who already have been taxed on their goods from Amazon.

This is such a bummer and a life ruiner.

Ok, that's overstating it, but it's definitely a bummer.

And they have pretty much started getting things to me overnight now instead of two days. Ordered a TV on Thurs, was at my door before I got home from work on Friday.  frown

Go get 3 now. It can be had for cheap. Best game of the series both SP and MP (but especially  MP).

It's more that they finished the story.  Character arcs finished, main characters died, the enemy was completely obliterated etc.  So for any new game they either have to set it in the past or come up with a new enemy, or I suppose pull some sort of retcon in regards to the fate of the Locusts. 

This all happened by three too, Judgement already went the flashback route.

Plenty of HUGE prequel opportunity. Like, say, the Pendulum Wars.
154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MS Acquires Rights to Gears of War on: January 27, 2014, 02:20:19 PM
So this is good for me as I went XB1 for this gen.  But whether this is good or bad for the series is TBD.

Judgment was trash and set the series back pretty significantly from a gameplay and 'what's in the box perspective'.  I feel like l've heard of Black Tusk...but will need to do some searching.

Also, WTF, Epic? I guess it's true. You're done as a major gaming developer.

This is my favorite franchise. I hope it turns out awesome.

Two words: Pendulum Wars!

Like the way I prefer my FPS games, I set it up to fight at a distance. So far in about eight MP matches, I've yet to be defeated, which seems rather odd, as I'm normally not that good. Maybe other folks just aren't setting up their mechs correctly.

I worked you the first time we met. You mauled me the second time.

Still trying to find the right weapon balance for energy/bullets/heat and short/mid/long ranges.

Very cool little game.

I would think "medically necessary" = "life threatening".

In this case "medically necessary" means "necessary to preserve the person's human rights". There's room for debate in this area, but the idea is that denying a LGBT person a sex change is a breach of that person's rights. It's easier, cheaper and safer to go through with it, particularly since that person could drag in the UN and create diplomatic issues for the US.

That's some definition of human rights.
