OK, all games are working.... except the virtual purchases.

I have them downloaded, but when I access the thumb drive, I get the no data found.

Go into the PS4 settings and under PSN I think make sure to set the system as primary PS4.


I did that already. That was the only way I could download them. They are downloaded, just can't get the game saves and data off thumb drive

I haven't had saves in the cloud on the PS4 for months. 

I have a long list of saves trying to upload with a marker telling me online storage is full.

It's ridiculous.

Whether they respawn or not is irrelevant. You will be attacked by wild animals:

- Whenever you need to be stealthy
- Whenever you only have one bar of health
- Whenever you barely survive a vicious shootout
- Whenever you've almost beat that mission that took you five tries
- Whenever you are on fire
- Whenever you are swimming
- Whenever you are sprinting
- Whenever you are running
- Whenever you take a breath in real life because the developers are sadistic assholes who enjoy tormenting their customers

Really, your only escape is to get in a vehicle.  However, then you'll have to listen to Rabi Ray Rana.  Honestly, getting eaten by an eagle may be a better deal.

In addition to Grim Fandango, a few other HD remasters are out this week - Indigo Prophecy and Heroes of Might & Magic III are both out now on Steam.

And iOS.

Destructoid has the first main stream review I've seen.

They gave it a 7/10, but there words seem to go with a higher score.

They start by saying:

Quote
As you may have heard, we got our Dying Light review code pretty late. As in, the day before launch. A late show doesn't necessarily instill confidence in a project, especially since a lot of fans had no idea what to expect from Techland's latest.

It's strange that this situation even happened considering Dying Light is one of Techland's best games outside of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.

And wrap it up with:

Quote
Dying Light often boils down to "Zombies: The Videogame," but it's fun to flip around like a ninja and cause havoc while you shuffle from one mission to the next. For many of you out there, that's basically all you'll need.

Leslie Jones standup - heavy on the screaming

Yikes, not a fan of that. 

Yeah, she's been...I don't know if "reigning it in" is the right phrase, but "putting that energy to better use" at least.  With a good director in the right role, she could be great.  I think this might be it.

Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are two of the best things about the new SNL cast, so I'm very happy. Leslie Jones is so good, in fact, that she started out as an extremely minor bit player (I think it was just one Weekend Update cameo) and was such a hit they promoted her to feature cast member.

I'm not really crazy about the idea of them putting the Ghostbusters name on this, however. I really hate Paul Feig's take that this should not reference the original movies/original movie universe. Then why steal the name? If you're not going to pay homage to the originals, then your blatant cash grab is even more blatant.

I'll try to keep an open mind, though. Those are four of the funniest ladies in the business right now.



He's backed down from that a little.

Quote

"We're not recreating the old movie but we want to do just enough fun nods that the fans will go, 'Oh, okay, they're acknowledging that the other movie existed,'" explained Feig.

And on the subject of parodies: "I like to watch parodies, but I don't want to do them because they're too referential. Comedy that's too referential has such a short shelf life, whereas comedy that's based around characters will be relatable 2000 years from now because people won't change that much."

I would have liked a more direct link to the old movies, too, and hopefully it won't be a total reboot.  It seems like it would be odd to not have this be in the same world.

Here's some Kate McKinnon on SNL: http://www.ifc.com/shows/comedy-bang-bang/blog/2014/06/kate-mckinnon-funniest-videos

Also, a killer Bieber: http://www.hulu.com/watch/585256 start_time=159

She will likely be playing someone who is a little off, but whether she's going to be more Egon or Keymaster remains to be seen.

Here's the thing about Leslie Jones, though.  She's still so new on SNL, that you can't really find a lot of stuff with her apart from update bits where she's just doing slight variations on her stand up.  I had actually dismissed her at the beginning, for the most part.  But over time, she's actually developed a bit of a character in those bits.  Not a full-on "character," but she has a more consistent through-line in them.  She's developing a heightened form of herself.  Then, seemingly all of a sudden, they started using her in sketches.  In a very small way at first, but it's been happening more and more, because she's becoming a bit of a utility player.  Someone you can pop into a sketch and heighten it.  And she's been getting laughs in sketches that are otherwise week.  It's pretty impressive, and she's definitely grown on me to the point where I look forward to seeing her.

I don't mean to say she's some comedy mastermind or akin to other great SNL utility players like Farrel or Hartman.  I honestly think she just stumbles into the funny.  But she's got a very different energy than anything out there.  Or really, anything out there in comedy.  What she does and who she seems to be are definitely out there in the real world.  I have run into plenty of Leslie Jones types in the world, and it's nice to see them represented.

Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon

This is an awesome cast.

Leslie Jones is kind of out of left field.  She's a beast of a woman and kind of uniquely hilarious.  To me, she's an inspired choice.

I love all of these women, though.

Unfortunately, I don't think this board is indicative of the larger population of gamers. Hopefully some have started to see the light after last year.

I didn't even like the first part of Dead Island.  I really only liked the trailer.

What's even worse here is that apparently Techland made some sort of big stink a while back about not having an embargo for this game.  Well, technically they didn't have an embargo.  They just didn't let the reviewers play it until the last minute.

I'm back into playing this after a little break.  I really like the game, but it's going to have to be played in short bursts for one reason alone: Rabi Ray Rana.  That fucking Radio Free Kyrat DJ.

I find every goddamned thing he says annoying as living hell.  It was bad enough when he was just on the radio, but then he starts giving you missions, and he does this thing that he clearly finds funny and charming but is really just more face-punch fodder.  He finishes giving you the mission over the walkie and then rambles for ten minutes about literally nothing. And then he makes a joke about how he's doing that thing again where he rambles and the whole time he's being "charmingly apologetic" you're screaming at the TV and telling him to shut. the. fuck. up.

One time it was something about assholes.  It wasn't about people who are assholes, but actual assholes.  He has also paid me a complement where he has wished for the sun to shine on my asshole.  What the fuck is his deal with assholes?  I don't like to really think about them at the best of times, but this douchebag is squeezing them into compliments where they just don't fit.

Honestly, he makes it really hard to keep playing.  One of these days I may have to shove a radio up his asshole and see how he feels about them then.

Regardless of home user upgrade rate, they have to support older versions of Windows for years because of the enterprise side of the business. Big corporations/government don't upgrade their OS quickly, so I don't see support is a reason.

I was wondering about this, too.  A free upgrade would save big companies bajillions, but I just don't see them rocking the IT boat that hard.  None the less, I imagine MS will put pressure on and/or entice them to do so.  Maybe an impending drop of support for older OSes will prompt faster change.

I finished reading the instructions last night.  Very simple ruleset.  The complications come from the spellbooks and getting the spellbooks and knowing what your faction can do (to get the spellbooks).  Still not complicated, but it is layered and a-symmetrical.  However, it's going to make playing 2-player (2 factions each) a bit of a chore, I think.

Mine is in the house.  Now to find time to play.  I may have to make my daughter try a 2 player version, even though that's not the ideal way to play.

It wasn't packed great, and I guess a few of them have damaged components, but mine seems okay, apart from a little misshapeness on the sexy box.  Even the Old Ones Storage tray is sexy on this thing.  A really thick, smoky plastic.  It'll be a shame to lose that when all the expansion stuff starts pouring in.  Seriously, I don't know where I'm going to store it.

I know the expansions are still down the road a bit.  Are the nice gates and 1st player markers coming with those?  I kinda wish I at least had the gates at this point.

I don't think they stated it outright, but it was strongly implied if nothing else. It also fits neatly into the vision Microsoft has of becoming a company for services, not products.

They literally stated it outright.

This has the potential to be really great or really bad. It could go bad if the "free" upgrade version is a neutered version with important features missing that you now have to pay extra for. They could get carried away and make features like media server connectivity and media player monthly charges. If it's free then please give us a full release don't nickle and dime us so that it costs more in the long run. I'm not saying they are going to do that, just that I could see them doing that and if so that would suck.

Now this I can't find a clip for, and I can't even find the original article I read, but what I saw was that this would be the exact same version that everyone got, with the plan being to get it out there and level their own playing field.

I imagine the goal is to make money on Word and other apps.  Maybe there's some behind the scenes mojo with new cuts from hardware sales, if that's even possible. Or maybe it's just a bold move to completely dominate the market/world.

The last I heard, the expansions are already in production or at least preproduction.  One of the developers said that if everything goes as planned they expect them to ship out to backers around June-July.  The reason they havenít announced that officially is because last time, the manufacturer completely botched the release plan.  I think one of their guys is going to actually BE in China in March, and will confirm the release date then.

Plus Chinese New Years and its two week vacation always screws things up in new and unusual ways.

The price difference between 3.5' and 2.5' drives are not that steep. And SSD drives are all 2.5 sized (which the console can use natively).

And does anyone need more than 2TB of console storage? Seriously, delete something.

When some of us were already deleting things less than a year into this consoles life cycle, and games are just going to get bigger, there's a need for more storage.



~500GB felt a bit constricting but 2TB feels like plenty for a while.  That's about 40 ~50 GB games of storage. 

I put in 1TB and, as mentioned, was already having problems in the Fall of last year.

I just started playing the game last week... Is anyone else turned off by the nature of the explicit content? I know I've become more sensitive towards mature content in entertainment since getting married and living with my wife, but it seems way too vulgar. The strip clubs actually show bare breasts, the dialogue is pretty harsh (particularly when Trevor is talking), the violence is not as "cartoony" as it used to be with Trevor smashing people's heads in left and right.

Maybe I'm not remembering clearly, but I thought GTA IV was classier about its content.

The last 3 GTA games have always been this bad.  It always makes me uncomfortable.

Maybe, but the material is entirely appropriate to the world being represented.

Trevor, for example, is meant to be bat shit crazy (though, as with all well-written fictional crazies, he does have his own set of rules) and keep you off balance, uncertain of what he might do.  To set this up, they bring in a major character from the previous game (a player character in one set of DLC) and have Trevor brutalize him.  This was an entirely intentional choice, and it truly sets up the violent, unpredictable nature of the character.

The visuals are cool, and I like Rudd's lines, but everything Douglas said was hack and hollow to me.  It's also way more serious than I was expecting.

I also thought it seemed way more serious than I was expecting.

Ditto - especially with the choice of Paul Rudd.  On the bright side, looks like he's toned/buffed up - yum!

In general this one's really got me scratching my head.  Personally I always liked Ant Man, but I never thought he'd be worth his own full screen feature, and I never had the impression he had much of a fan base.  But... I also was pretty skeptical about Guardians and Agent Carter, and both of those were nice surprises, so maybe I should just trust Marvel  nod

I may have been skeptical about either Guardians or Agent Carter at one time, but that went away when I saw trailers.  

The poster taps into the sense of humor I was expecting, but this trailer has none of it.  Even the line about the name is given more weight than a toss off like that should have.  It's all somber.  And the more I hear Douglas' speech, the more I feel it could have been written by the geekiest kid sitting by himself in the lunchroom.  And having sometimes been that kid, I can verify it.

So, exactly how "stand alone" is First Light? Can someone who hasn't played the base game know what's going on?

It's a prequel to Infamous 3 and it doesn't require Infamous 3 to play it, so I would say that's pretty stand alone.

Well, except like many prequels, there are events that happen which are unknown until later in the original game.

Apart from Edith's dramatic moping (which seemed pointless right up until it had a point), I found the episode quite enjoyable and back to good form.
