It looks to be a lose, lose situation for you folks south of the 49th parallel North.

Trump - the World losses
Clinton - oh man, please say no.
Bernie - A good old boy, who probably wouldn't have the oomph to get much done in office
Cruz - I think I would pick Trump over Cruz, he seems to me to be that stereotype of a sleezy Politician.
Rubio
et-al.

The next 4 years should be.............scary.

Whether you love it or not depends heavily on whether you enjoyed Harvest Moon and its genre.  All signs point to this being the definitive version of the genre with improvements carried over from other games.

Never played, Harverst Moon. If its like this game, I doubt it would make a difference.  Definitely something I would play with my Grandchildren though.  icon_smile
43  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Harvest Moon-like game No. 1 at Steam's top sellers list on: March 06, 2016, 08:17:03 AM
I have the game, bought on hearing all the good about it.
I don't get the love.
It seems like a little app you might run on a I-phone.

But hey, if this is gaming Nirvana for some, then so be it.

I changed the way I usually play these games as well.  I am limiting how many health bars I use, I think I may stop at just 4 of them and I don't use the quick heal either which makes the fights very interesting. 
I turned off all the UI and haven't missed it at all. 

Nice, you gave me some new stuff to add to the list.

Good ideas.

Ok, we're well under way now. eek icon_twisted and I've found the deeper play I was looking for.
Along the same thoughts as Caine. I realized it wasn't the lack of deepness in the game-play, so much as it is
the speed, and attitude of play style, When I first started playing I was oh yeah its pretty, where are the T-Rex?
Its a style of play I have in some FPS I've played. Run and Gun. This way will either get you so frustrated you rage-quit
or so bored you fall-asleep-quit.
This is Wine, not a Mug of draft beer. It becomes an amazing experience for me when I did a 180 in how I played.
It becomes so much more tense, and expectant of deep trouble. Which is the way you'd feel being on the lowest rung of the food chain.

I'm also getting some great head-shots in pretty often, IF I play it right. I find handling 3 or more enemies much more interesting, and strategic. Before?  Tag them from above, drop to Earth, light my arrows and run in like a goat.

If you are finding it a bit, huh? for you, check your style of playing. How you're seeing the game, from a role-playing perspective. It works, so work it.  nod
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: March 03, 2016, 12:38:49 PM
The gameplay is great, even exciting at times. But does it ever change as the game progresses?
After a few hours of waiting for the next level of the game to unfold, into something a bit deeper,
I'm still getting my gaming kicks from it. But if this is the meat and potatoes of the game I've already done,
then I can't see me playing much longer.

Yeah, always sad when an Artist of his ilk pass on. For me he was always there trough my music loving journey.
I remember when Ziggy Stardust was introduced to the World. Amazing how Bowie captivated the industry with his
fearless changes of persona, and everyone of them worked.  Diamond Dogs is my favorite, but in all honesty, how can
you pick just one of anything with David Bowie.?

48  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: March 01, 2016, 09:54:50 PM
Well, no more speculating. I did a Steam buy of the game, and I'm glad I did so far.
I have no idea, from my perspective anyway, what those nay sayers are on about.??

I run the Benchmark for Each graphical setting.

On High, I got over 60fps Average
On V-High, a fair drop of about 15 fps
On Ultra....Highest was 49, Lowest(which I look for) was 30, Average ........you do the math. slywink
 
I have i5 4790 3.35mhz, 6 gigs,fast ram, and a GTX-960. So by no means a fast rig,,,but yet for me, even Ultra is very playable.

Gameplay wise, still early hours. But what Ive done so far, has grabbed me, and the Atmosphere is great. Not sure about sub-titles the whole way through
IF you want to know what they all are saying. Small price.  Can't wait to get to taming and some of the bigger melee's. If you like FarCry, you'll like Primal for sure.
If you played FC and didn't like the game play, this just might have what you're looking for, as opposed to the more traditional settings.

as with me, YMMV

50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: March 01, 2016, 03:00:37 PM
There's a shit storm happening over at Steam. More than a few PC customers are all getting the same
error message, and still haven't been in the game. Some that are in are very negative about the graphics,
to a one, saying Facry 4 looked much better.

My wife called from town and asked if I wanted a game, yep I says, Primal it is.
After reading a few comments on Steam I almost frantically called her to nix the purchase.
But it will be a steam card, so I do have some options.

Any PC gamers playing this one?
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: February 28, 2016, 12:20:49 PM
I've been trying to finish Farcry 4 for months. It's not a bad game, and some things I really like.
But over-all it just leaves me a bit flat after playing 30 minutes.

I'm wrestling with the notion to pick this up for the PC in a couple of days. But there seems to be a
common "groan" with players. That the game feels like Farcry 4 re-skinned. That the game play
is so similar to 4 that is feels copied.
You can't comment on the PC version, but I'm sure the play is not much different on consoles.

Do you feel like its a fresh, fun, new way of playing the Farcry engine.?
Or just a re-skin of FC4?

What say ye, oh soothsayers of Gaming Trend.............
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: February 21, 2016, 01:19:54 PM
Why not start a fresh series. To me it should have its own run at it, instead of the constant comparisons to the other Farcries.

His voice on TV would get me running to watch him. He was a very quick-wit-Brit.

An interesting little movie...Truly, madly, deeply. For me it was a pleasure watching him
bob and weave through conversation, so quick with a retort.

For me he was in a class of his own. Especially the parts that he chose to portray.
I would have thoroughly enjoyed seeing him in theater, playing some over the top Shakespeare roles.

So young. 7 years older than me...........gulp.  J/K smile

Yeah, you're probably right. Starting over I'm sure they've streamlined the leveling process?
It really would be like playing it for the first time anyway.

59  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: New WoW Expansion revealed @ Gamescom on: January 17, 2016, 12:53:28 AM
Interesting. I haven't played WoW since the time around the release of Burning Crusade.  I would really
like to make a return to WoW, but the task of catching up with everything seems daunting.
I've missed tons of new developments..Does Blizzard have a way of streamlining the return trip?

I kicked around the idea for something like this being handled in game: Each expansion would have say,
10 hours of play, weaving the new stuff and abiliities into game-play. I would rather that then *poof*
your max level for that expansion.

Anyone attempt a big return to Wow, have any knowledge of this subject?
I'm not enjoying the newer MMO's. I'm burned out for bit on the picture post-card
visuals, and they become very fast a screen shot simulator.
I really liked Wow and its visual style. Cartoon y, yet not so much.

I'm partially in shock still from thinking of a return to Wow. 
Get back into playing the Cow.

I've been playing some of new release of [b
Dungeon Lords [/b]- this is the 2005 action RPG that had several buggy releases. Put in 4hrs in to it. It lives up to the "dungeon" name as these 4 hours have been spent in sewers, a small town, and now a crypt. I'm itching to explore but there's no chance of that yet. Ugh. c is intuitive and has opened up new things I have to work towards. It's $14 on the Steam sale right now and worth checking out if you either like the survival games or were curious about trying them - can always Steam refund.

Steam refund works. And works well. You can get a handful of hours playing a game(no demo maybe) to see if it's what you want, or if you can run it. Preview the game before you commit.

Why do you guys still play games on the PC?  Weird.

I hope this is a joke...  If not, I'd say it's for many reasons depending on the game or person: cheaper prices and frequent sales, higher framerates and resolutions, mod support, longer lifespan for games in general, faster patching, mouse and keyboard support, choice of gamepad, and on and on.

Excellent response. I have never owned a console. When the kids were small I'd bang away on theirs, but never felt the need to get one.
I like the PC way of things. I enjoy working with my system, the whole way of things with a PC is more attractive then what consoles can offer me/

Also, I have never seen or heard of great games on consoles that made me even think of getting one. There is always something new in the PC world.

Fallout 4.  I was so far off my prediction of this game. I stopped playing Fo4, and fired up New Vegas. Ahhh, there it is, that "something" that 4 is missing.

Nice surprise:  Codemaster's,, Dirt Ralley. This racer is tight. It hits all the buttons for me, from the wingman calling out the road ahead, crowds cheering
when you barely slow down for a hair-pin, dive into the corner, hit hand brake, goose her again, and she's off. Great drifting. Graphics, sound, atmosphere, all there.

On another game I just got, Farcry 4, again I much preferred 3. This game was a 2014 release, I thought it came out at the beginning of the year.
This is a disappointment as well.

Did some snooping around today, just to see what kind of feel I get from the players.

There seems to be a fairly substantial consensus from "gamers" that its a great game.
Some saying 11/10, and then you have the payed-Critics of the game. They are not very
keen on the game at all.

Last two or three days when I log into Steam, I get the big splash page with the latest offerings.
Hurtworld is being promoted with a lot of positive feed-back. Yes, it's another Survival game.

Hurtworld, by the reviews, is the best Survival game yet. Hard-core Vets of the genre say its better
than Rust-Legacy.
When you see the add for it, you might just want to click on "next".
It looks at first like a very early Alpha build(graphics).

When you dig in a bit to see the fuss............You realize its not all hype.
It has some unique offerings that others don't.
They classify it as "Hard-core" survival. No hand holding they say. Watched a few videos on YT.
These folk playing in the Vid's, seem to be having a blast in - game.  How strange.   icon_wink

Canadian Vet.

bombadier on a 155mm self-propelled howitzer. 105's, Boffers, pack-Howitzer, Anti-aircraft flax cannons.
I worked the O.P. early on, as a communicator to the Command post, relaying data to be applied to the Battery of Guns  (6 Guns to a Battery)
I have seen really good Officers come consistently within 1 correction of the target.  Right-150, H.E. charge 7, 4 rounds FFA. (fire for affect)

That would release 6 guns to fire 4 rounds as quickly as they can. There is nothing like the sound of an Arty.  round screaming over your head.
 Grunts love a good Arty shelling before they attack on the ground. Softening up the enemy pretty good.

I absolutely took to the way of life as if it were a call. smile

This game is actually inspiring me to think about going back to play New Vegas.  I never played Fallout 3 or NV, but from everything I heard New Vegas was really the superior game as far as choice and options.  I'm just not sure if making a step back to a 5 year old game after playing the sequel would be a good move...

Right, I had,(have) an Epiphany about the same thing. I never played 3, but I did purchase NV, but never gave it a serious go. But with all the negatives being posted about F4, and the ongoing comparison to how much better NV was for the Fallout fans.

I feel like I shouild put down F4. I had a look at the stills, and video's of NV,  it's aging just fine, from what I've seen.

Re-rolling has kept me from progressing into the game much, but funnily enough, I don't care about the level.
Its the type of game where you just "play" how you want, and its as valid a play style as those sticking closely to the story-line.

I think maybe because the game tends to lean towards the PC gamer due to the ability to mod. I also post on the Octopus Overlords PC Games forum and over there the FO4 thread is up to 46 pages.

True. But don't most people feel the way to play F-? , is on the PC?

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

For me the question should be, has anyone used the power armor?  I only used it at the beginning of the game where they tell you to.  After that it sits in the first settlement, and since then I've been all man

I've used it for a couple of really tough missions near the coast, but otherwise I prefer to leave it off. It costs quite a lot of resources to repair. However, even the power armor skeleton is useful. I'm about 70 hours into the campaign and there have been missions that would have been a lot easier with the power armor, but so far I'm enjoying the challenge.

Yep, same same.

I have close to 70hrs. into the game, according to Steam. I haven't made it past lv11 yet.
Its a very potent case of restartingnewallthetime syndrome.  Bad case of it.
And today I think I've answered my own concerns about that.

I've been trying to play this like like a "traditional" Fallout game. I guess you can include the first two as well.
But this isn't what you would expect from a Fallout game.  It feels open world and huge, for sure.
But everything, mostly, seems watered down. For who? Yep, the unwashed masses. Trying to please everyone, all the time.
Even Honest Abe knew you couldn't do that.

Character development, story line, purpose, and play, Don't work for me in this game.  Stick a fork in it.
