So, I think Microsoft's incentives have finally reached critical mass for me.

- Offering an XB1, without Kinect, and bundled with Sunset Overdrive for $350.  That's one of the few exclusives I'm sincerely interested in.

- Doing so just before the release of the Halo: Master Chief Collection.  Another major exclusive that was always tempting me towards the console.  I thought Halo 4 already looked astoundingly good on the 360, so if 343 Studios can unify the entire series with that degree of fidelity....

- I was already planning to buy an XB1 controller for use with my PC.  Using the one that comes with the console instead will cost nothing more than a long USB micro cable, effectively saving me an additional $55.

- This is all happening just as Best Buy offers an enormous price cut on their Gamers Club Unlocked membership.  Bullwinkle took the time to put up a detailed explanation here, but the short version is that I'll be able to buy any new XB1 games for 20%-off through the next year.

If there will ever be a better time down the road to pick up this console, I can't imagine what it would be.  I think I'm finally sold.

Speaking of Eco-Logic, I'm curious how people feel about the increasingly provocative line of signatures he's been using these last several weeks. 

The first one I noticed was a broadcast that anyone who wanted Governor Rick Perry to resign was "part of the problem."  Just after the first report of an Ebola outbreak, he changed it to a warning that President Obama is acting against our best interests.  That apparently didn't get the reaction he wanted, so the updated and current version reads:

Quote from: Eco-Logic
This signature is not personal, at all.  If you're not awake enough to realize our country is being taken down by an organized effort from a puppet chimp being controlled by a movement older than me.  Wake the freaking fack up.


I cannot think of anyone else on the forum who would be so classless as to spam every single post they make -- again -- with their shrill political agenda.  However, if someone did, other people would at least have the option to open a thread in Politics & Religion where a frank exchange of ideas would not derail the 'What Are You Buying This Week?' thread.  We don't have that option with Eco-Logic since he was banned from the P&R board for repeatedly telling everyone to fuck off every time he left GamingTrend forever.

Outside of his signature, I have not seen any examples of Eco-Logic trying to key people up.  He's clearly capable of contributing to the community in positive ways, yet occasionally, randomly, chooses not to do so. That's why I'm not calling for any specific action here, as I have no idea what to even recommend, but I'm interested to hear what others think.

I never think to use the bow in the middle of a melee skirmish, but I saw that the fire shot requires that, so I guess it's a thing.


Yeah, Elfshot is the most reliable threat management resource in the game.  It's guaranteed to take 3 - 5 enemies out of the encounter while simultaneously charging up your combo meter for a finisher of your choice.  And that's before you add runes that heal you, restore focus, and terrify orcs with every headshot.

It sounds overpowered, but it's also finite enough that you have to use it wisely and mix in plenty of other combat moves to survive.  The combat in this game is pretty great!

I like this game, but I am seriously terrible at it.  Which is odd, as I never really had much trouble with the AC games.  It's a little frustrating that anytime you get spotted, you're immediately surrounded by a dozen enemies.  I haven't been able to get the hang of combat yet, and I'm afraid I'm going to break the game with the number of Orcs that are getting promoted because they killed me. 


Assuming you're playing on the PS4, tapping the 'X' button to roll over an enemy is a fantastic way to avoid damage while you reposition for some breathing room.  Melee and ranged attacks will almost always miss, you'll keep your combo going, and you can do it multiple times to work your way towards the edge of a crowd if needed.

Your priority targets should be archers and skirmishers -- the orks with the javelins.  They like to stay near the periphery of a fight and ruin your combat flow with unblockable ranged attacks.  Use your own bow to return the favor: your Focus ability slows time to a crawl, giving you plenty of time to line up one or two charged headshots and take them out the fight immediately.  Their weaponry also glows red in the wraith world, making them easy to pick them out in a group.

I'll be interested to see how the reviews for Styx: Master of Shadows turn out.  The preview content they've been putting out has looked so polished, I initially had no idea it was a PSN downloadable title.  I like stealth games, and I've been on something of a fantasy kick lately with Shadow of Mordor, Age of Wonders III, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.

On the downside, Styx is made by Cyanide Studios, a developer that has become increasingly notorious for undercutting its awesome game mechanics with the most brain dead AI this side of Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing.  It wouldn't surprise me learn the AI guards in Styx have dialogue like, "Eh?  What was that?  I must be hearing things again....better jam this dagger into my own ear to be sure-BLRRK!"

I think the real reason they went with 10 is that their original title, Windows Nova, tested poorly in Spanish-speaking countries where the words no va mean "doesn't go."

Then their backup brand, Windows Notable, upset people in English speaking countries where the phrase "no table" was taken to mean there would be no traditional desktop.

Folks interested in Disney Infinity 2.0 might want to read through the reviews first.  Some have been positive, but GameSpot, IGN, and Game Informer were all pretty cool on it.

Quote from: Game Informer
Disney Infinity’s leap into the Marvel universe is bafflingly bad – a gut-punch of a sequel stripped of most of the magic, wonder, and imagination that made the play sets from the first Infinity game enjoyable for children and adults alike. The adventures offered for The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Spider-Man rank among the worst super hero games of recent memory, pushing players to complete mundane tasks like “fetch a battery” or “activate this device” over and over again.


By contrast, the GI gave the first game a 9/10.

I'll be buying GTA V for YellowKing's birthday, then nonchalantly focusing on the road during the drive home.  I'll put it in a closet upstairs and divert my attention towards other things, but it'll all turn out half-assed because I keep blinking furiously and wiping the sweat from my brow.  Eventually I'll go take it out again, just to make sure it's still there.

Then there will be an uncomfortable scene about a week later as YellowKing's friends and family watch him tears open some wrapping paper to reveal a half-eaten Snickers.  Their uncertain eyes will turn towards me, partially because they'll still be unclear on who I am or how I came to be in the house.  And partially because I'll be furtively wiping my brow, looking at that Snickers.

Free on 360 last month.

this game is frigging great.

though i wish there were more non-lethal weapons and powers...there's like 3 things that iI get to use.


I think the best way to experience Dishonored is to go "High Chaos" for your first playthrough, using your various gadgets and abilities to set up flashy kill streaks against your enemies.  Saving the super-sneaky Ghost Mode run for a second playthrough frees you up to fully explore the levels, find all the loot, and experiment with whatever powers you like.  I'll also say that the game seems best balanced at "Hard" difficulty or above.

Either way, Dishonored is definitely worth playing through at least twice.  I just finished my Low Chaos run and it's a very different, very cool experience!

The Darkness (part of Operation: Get Rid of the 360TM)


Wugh!

I finish most of the games that I start, especially if they're fairly short, but I bailed on The Darkness at the speed of Gratch.  Floaty controls, crummy graphics, and a central hook of "Demon Powers!" that felt like it was more about restricting the protagonist rather than liberating him to do anything cool.  The level design was interesting at first -- I actually liked needing to look at street signs and such to find my way around -- but by the time they degenerated into endless mudflats punctuated by bursts random instant-death mortar fire, I was completely out.

I've heard the sequel is a lot better.  I have it for the PC, but haven't tried it yet.

Instead, I recently finished up my super-stealth run through Dishonored.  Now that's a great game!  I murdered everyone from the shadows during my first time through, so trying to slip through while leaving every patrolling guard completely untouched made for a completely different experience!  It was also really that the final level is heavily redesigned depending on your High Chaos / Low Chaos standing.

I'm justifying this by telling myself that I didn't buy the Reaper of Souls expansion, which is still $30. So I'm really only double-dipping for half of the cost, which is justifiable in terms of this being a definitive edition.


Sounds reasonable to me, particularly if you wind up playing multiplayer with people in the new version.  I played a huge amount of the PC version after the expansion came out, and if you include the performance gains the new-gen consoles have over the old, the new content will easily justify the double-dip!

You do realize you're a consumer, right? You don't benefit in the slightest from taking the side of the corporations. Microsoft doesn't need your protection. They would laugh at the attempt.

I'm also a capitalist.


Microsoft had the option to spend their money in any number of ways.  Just off the top of my head, they could have made the XB1 version of the game more appealing by picking any one of these:

- creating a cool Collector's Edition just for the XB1 version,

- directly financed the creation of additional DLC content just for their customers,

- paid for all XB1 pre-orders to get the first DLC for free, and discounted the Season Pass accordingly,

- given away $10 in Marketplace money with all Day One purchases, or

- straight-up discounted all pre-orders.  I bought the PC version of the first Tomb Raider on release day for $45; there's no reason consoles have to be locked to $60 price points.


All of these options *add* value for Microsoft's consumers.  You *could* buy the game anywhere...but look at this extra incentive if you do business with us.

Instead, Microsoft leveraged their wealth to take competing versions off the market.  They didn't add any value.  They didn't create any new art or produce any extra game play.  Their version of the game isn't any better -- the XB1 gets the same game it was always going to get, except with less direct competition to incentivize price drops, and everyone else has to wait for the contract to expire.

Monied interests paying to reduce competition and take options away from everyday consumers in the hopes that artificial scarcity will net greater profits.  That's "capitalism."


Quote from: YellowKing on August 13, 2014, 05:29:21 PM

You have plenty of choices. The first and foremost being, go purchase and play a competitor's game. Nobody has the right to play Tomb Raider.

[Edit] - I'm not going to get into the entitlement argument anymore - gamers are spoiled brats, you know it and I know it.


And anyone who is negatively affected by those decisions and voices discontent is "entitled" and a "spoiled brat."

You're correct, Yellowking: I don't have a right to play Tomb Raider.  But when someone else decides that my opportunity should be arbitrarily delayed by several months because they think limiting my choices is in their financial interest, I do have a right to say, "Hey man, you're being a real shithead."

Some reporting it's not timed now.  I guess to some degree it makes sense for SE to not compete with Uncharted directly, but like I said the PS4 version of TR DE sold around double the XB1 version.  Also no PC version...


That really just...sucks.  frown  I absolutely adored Tomb Raider and a sequel would absolutely be one of the extremely few upcoming games that would be a day one purchase for me.  Guess not, since I have exactly zero interest in ever owning an XB1. 


Same.  I had intended to buy the PC version of Tomb Raider 2 on release day.  Eliminating that option doesn't inspire me to buy an XB1...it just ensures I won't play it until something else sells me on the system.

Hopefully Microsoft paid Square and Crystal Dynamics enough to offset the lost sales.  It's clear to me that the people making it care a lot about their reborn franchise, and I'd hate to see it killed off again just because some higher-ups decided to brush off the majority of their audience.

A bunch more FF XIV.  Wondering if Autistic Angel will bite the bullet and join in, since there is a 14-day trial available now.  smile


Final Fantasy XIV looks like a good game and I do enjoy MMOs now and again.  The trouble is that they tend to overtake everything else.  It's hard to spend time with any other game when there's a paid subscription quietly ticking away and your friends are waiting on you to help out with the next group objective.

It's the same reason I didn't bite on any of the holiday sales for Wildstar.  MMOs are great when you can look ahead and decide you've got a month or two to really devote to one game, but right now I'm in a backlog-diving sort of mood.

Speaking of which, I finished Zelda: Skyward Sword this weekend.  I had a great time with the exploration and all the puzzle-solving -- the world and backstory they created really stood out -- but I can't say that I ever felt completely comfortable with the combat.  I don't know if playing this Wii game on my Wii U introduced some input lag or something, but I felt like the designers consistently expected me to react a half-second faster than I actually could.  It might also be that I was simply Playing Wrong.  It took me forever to figure out why the bomb-rolling seemed so inconsistent, and once I knew, I had passed all the major bomb-bowling sections of the game.

Between this and Wind Waker HD, I also think I need to make time to replay Twilight Princess at some point.  I've long said it's my favorite game in the entire Zelda series, but as much as I remember loving the game's style, the new gadgets, and some of the specific puzzles...I don't think I could recount a single thing about the actual story.  Maybe it's just because it's the one people talk about the least; I probably wouldn't remember the end of Majora's Mask so well if people weren't bringing it up whenever there's talk of a remake.

Anyway, with that under my belt, I've loaded up Divinity: Original Sin to check out next.  So far I've made a Ranger and a Wizard, and my first impressions are -very- positive!

Season 1, yes.  Season 2, no.  Season 3, yes.  Season 4, so far yes.

The problem with season 2 was that they should have wrapped up the story in season 1 and went onto a new mystery (like they did season 3 and are doing with season 4), but instead they artificially extended the story from season 1 through ridiculous and stupid plot devices that made viewers and critics alike write the show off.  But they learned their lesson and returned with a much better story for season 3. 

But the real draw of the show are the leads.  They're fantastic.  Especially Holder.  He's made even more impressive when you realize English is the actor's second language. 


Although I agree with hepcat's assessment of the problems with Season 2, I have to say the conclusion really stuck with me.  You may also find you are much less bothered by some of its excesses because you won't have to wait several months between the Season 1 finale and the Season two premiere.

I fully agree on the strength of the lead performers, though.  They're both stupendous!

Really?  I would normally dis regard it because a. geared towards younger players and b. I hate having to buy a lot of extras to play the game.


The first rule of Skylanders is that you should never, ever buy a figure at MSRP.  There's a sale at either Best Buy, Target, or Toys R Us almost every week, and although TRU is notorious for marking up all of their Skylanders, their frequent Buy 2, Get 1 Free deals still offer the best bang for your buck.

Secondly, you won't need more than a handful of characters to gain access to everything Swap Force had to offer.  Brandon Cackowski-Schnell wrote up a buyer's guide over at No High Scores last fall, and I think you only need something like 6 specific figures to cover every possible skill / elemental combination in the game.  I can easily look it up if you like.

It's also worth noting that all Skylanders are forwards-compatible with all future games, at least so far.  The guys you level up and customize in Swap Force will carry all their upgrades into Trap Team when that comes out this fall.  As insidious as the "Characters Sold Separately" aspect of the game may seem at first blush, you can get a tremendous amount of game play out of every figure.

Finally, and most importantly, I feel like it's under-appreciated that Skylanders games are legitimately great on their own merits.  They're kid-friendly action-RPGs with cool combat moves, difficulty options that range from "Snooze" to "Dig Some Mass Graves", they're equally great single-player or co-op, and there are tons of bonus challenges to complete once you've finished the main story.

It's true that Skylanders will run you more than a typical game, but especially if you have kids to play with, I'd compare the cost of entry to something like Rock Band where the amount of fun makes it all worthwhile.

Preorder for TLOU.


This!

Never going to say told you so, as we all suffer from the incompetence.  Also, climate change, as articulated by the global warming fools, is total shite.

At Demarc's Neural Jack Emporium, we'll purge your stream-of-consciousness filter the right way.  Why risk taking a humiliating braindump all over your favorite cybernet forum when our patented Buffer Buff-Up service can make those firewalls red hot again?  You'll post with confidence, knowing the random gibberish floating through your mind is screened and safely isolated from your outgoing datastream.

And for a limited time, every service worth 1337 credits or more comes with a free jack lathing!

Fast.  Discrete.  Demarc's.

A huge patch for FFXIV hit this week, adding a whole bunch of new stuff.  Will be running the new dungeons and starting on my wild hunting log.


Did you ever find the other six Atma Crystals you needed to build a new weapon?

Knight and Battlemage and they appear to disagree on EVERYTHING.  Also I have a Wayfarer and Cleric under another profile too


When I play, I want to try a class combination that nobody else has used.  Like a Shepherd and a Dancer, or a Barkeep and a Nun.

Original Sin just got a stellar review from Game Informer, by the way.  Daniel Tack is one of their newest reviewers, but based on the livestreams and Test Chambers he's done so far, his taste in games seem very close to my own.  I'm looking forward to trying out Original Sin once my schedule opens up a bit.

Fine. LOL

I'll stay out of R&P for good from now on. It's just the same like-minded people getting eachother off mentally anyway.


Oh, okay.  Goodbye forever, again.

I don't think anyone here expects to change Zekester's mind.  We've all seen him circle this drain before.  He'll continue making LULZsome zingers until it finally dawns on him that everyone is laughing AT him, at which point he'll melt down, claim he's leaving forever, and then pop back up in a day or two like nothing ever happened.

I doubt it'll place on my GOTY list in six months, but I really am having a good time with Watch Dogs.  It's one of those games I play sporadically for 30-45 minutes at a time throughout the week, and while it isn't quite engaging enough to hook me in longer, the sheer breadth of side content keeps me coming back again and again.  Also, the subject matter has piqued my interest.

What classes are your two main heroes?  Or are you playing co-op with someone?
