1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your biggest gaming disappointment/sleeper hit of 2014? on: November 21, 2014, 08:41:40 PM

Quote from: farley2k on November 21, 2014, 06:23:41 PM

I was rather shocked by how bland Destiny turned out to be.  I knew it wasn't a full SP game but I expected something better than just re-running the same patrol missions in the hope of getting better loot, just to get better loot so I can re-run the same patrol missions to get better loot, etc. 

It sure it pretty though. 
This sums it up pretty well.  Pretty/bland

My lightbulb moment came after spending an hour in front of the loot cave.  I played for an hour, got a few blues and more greens, and went from level 20 to level 20 with ~10  more light points .  I looked back and thought what I could be playing instead that I would actually enjoy and everything was more enticing.

There's still 1 1/2 months left of the year, and whatever is freshest in our mind always shines the brightest. Give it a couple more months and ask again then. Any replies right now will be heavily skewed towards the latest releases, while completely skipping anything that hasn't come out yet.

There are no more big releases beyond Smash Bros and The Crew that I'm aware of.  A few more smaller games and re-releases I'm sure, but highly doubtful anything that would stick out as a GOTY.
Apparently it's against the rules or something. 
So they don't deserve to be considered? And all those highly anticipated games that came out yesterday, are you claiming that we are all ready to toss our fair and balanced verdict about them into the pot? Games like Little Big Planet 3 aren't even out in Europe yet.

This thread is the very definition of impatience, and is way too early for it to have any significance whatsoever. If you guys can just control yourself until the beginning of January (at which point even the latest releases should have at least one or two weeks of distance), maybe our "GOTY" vote will mean something too. As it is, this is just ridiculous, and will detract from any other GOTY votes we may come up with for this year later.

But hey, suit yourselves. I'm not going to vote in this thread.

You getting a tattoo of the results of this thread or something?  What's the harm in having a discussion about our favorites as of now?  I'm pretty sure we can change our minds later or even start a January thread.

Picked up Never Alone (XB1), Jackbox Party Pack(XB1) (which isn't in the list, Caine) and GTA V for XB1.

Dragon Age 3 can wait till I'm done 1, let alone two. Same thing with Far Cry 4.
Sorry, missed that in the massive blob of release dates. 
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's your biggest gaming disappointment/sleeper hit of 2014? on: November 19, 2014, 05:50:33 PM
Whether due to the level of hype or anticipation, what do you consider your biggest disappointment of games this year?  What about the game that came out of nowhere to rock your world?

I have two, but the clear leader is Watch_Dogs.  I fell hard for the previews and shelved it after a relatively short time without finishing the campaign.  So many missed marks, bad handling in vehicles, over-emphasis on guns over hacking as a viable option.  Runner up is ACU, but I went in with lowered expectations that were mostly met (minus the buggy launch)

On the flip side, I really didn't expect to love Shadows of Mordor as much as I do.  I expected a good game based on the previews but it is a much better game than it's got any right to be. 
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's Almost Thanksgiving (USA! USA!), What's your GOTY? on: November 19, 2014, 05:44:06 PM
I need to spend time with Far Cry 4 and DAI before making a decision.  So far, Shadows of Mordor is pretty damn close to goty for me.

Elite drops offline mode

Quote
A fully offline experience would be unacceptably limited and static compared to the dynamic, ever unfolding experience we are delivering.

Keep in mind this doesn't drop the solo mode, so you can escape to your own version of the galaxy if you end up getting mobbed by griefers. 

It does break the option for fans without a decent connection (or none of course).

Loaded up and played about 3 hours, or enough to clear out the first area.  Wasn't expecting to be gated so soon right off the bat.  Mostly, I went hunting and exploring while upgrading weapons.  Great looking game and a good improvement to FC3.

I loaded up Far Cry yesterday instead, but when I start, it's going to be hard to choose how to start.  Thinking of going Elf ranger, as trite as that sounds.

Quote from: Autistic Angel on November 18, 2014, 10:35:41 PM

This weekend, I replayed the first 3 missions of the PS3 version because I wanted to have a good perspective on how the new version compared.  I also remember feeling overwhelmed by how sophisticated the controls were, especially when so much of the tutorial tips are popping up while you're dodging bullets.

I popped in the PS4 version this afternoon to try playing the same sequence, but within just a few minutes, the picture turned all blurry and wavery.  It was impossible to see what was happening.  I went to check the cables and realized that the display was fine -- the trouble was that I was crying.

What was wrong with me that I'd willingly subjected myself to that PS3 version for more than a few seconds?  Was my time so worthless that I could actually spend an hour squinting at a 720p screen and trying to figure out if that jaggy blur was an oncoming vehicle or a park bench?  And what was I going to do when I eventually finished the game and had to go back to looking at things that weren't GTA V HD?

Even this forum...God, I can't stand to look at these pixelated letters any more!  Everything sucks so hard now THE REAL WORLD IS RUINED FOREVER

Welcome to the forums Kyothe.  

I've forgotten if any of that was mandatory, I think there may once you get to the Trevor stuff.  TBH, there's enough of that kind of violent or sexual content that I won't be playing it when she's around.

Reading reviews sounds like they left the 4-player co-op as different characters on the back burner and did not really make it as big as they did in the E3 presentation.

While not the end of the 2014 Q4 release list, this qualifies as one of the biggest.  If one phrase could describe this week, it would be 'open-world'  We have 2 different long awaited open-world RPGs, an open world sequel to compete against an open world remastered edition and an open-world port of an earlier game to WiiU.  And to top that off, a game sure to see the death of many a friendship and/or controller.

I'm following the Seahawks again this season and while I'm glad they're winning again, I'm really concerned about their passing game - seems nonexistent at times. Unless they can get it together on that front, I won't be surprised if the 49ers finish ahead of them in the division. Not that I want Leo and Naednek to have the satisfaction of seeing that.  Tongue

PS CoachTressman, you're sucking in the NFL! Please come back to the CFL where the 3 downs & bigger field are more your cup of tea. And please make your return destination the BC Lions.  smile
Am I the only 1 that watched that Packers-Bears game? Good lord that was the pure definition of complete-ass-kicking!

The Seahawks abandoned their passing game when they let Golden Tate leave in free agency last year without even trying to counter with  a modestly competitive offer.  The Lions are beyond happy with his production, attitude, and work ethic so far this year.
Yeah, lots of us were questioning that move up here.  "At least we have Percy" :facepalm

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones too, because aside from framerate dips and the texture pop-in I haven't had any of these issues.  Arno has never gotten stuck, fallen through floors, no NPC strangeness, and no lock-ups.  It does drive me nuts there is no way to quit the game, I had one occasion where the map and menus wouldn't come up until I restarted, framerate seems to be getting worse the more I play, plus my Uplay account is totally screwed up for the companion app.  I deleted and re-downloaded, was working great until it had me log into Uplay.  After that all my progress was gone and I'm stuck back at mission 1 with no assassins to do missions and no way to recruit any.  This is even after upgrading to the premium version.  I'm pretty much screwed until they fix it, which is really irritating.  Ubi has burned me for the last time.  I am not buying anything published by them until they fix this abomination.  I don't care if the PC version of Rogue is discounted to a dollar, I refuse to support this company any more until they deliver what they promised.  If they never fix it then this will the last Ubi product I purchase, Assassin's Creed or otherwise.

Like I said though, I appear to be one of the lucky ones.
Yup, that's the same bug reported by a ton of people and is exactly what I ran across.  I didn't buy the premium app as I wanted to see what was locked behind the gate first.  If you don't sync the app, you can play just fine.  Sync, and there's a good chance you'll lose everything and get stuck.

They are aware and "working on a fix"

Yeah, this is hopefully a good thing. One can only hope that this rips them out of their annual release schedule and makes them think of the games first and the schedules second. The film industry can plan exact release dates years in advance. The game industry really can't, and Ubisoft should know that.
Agreed on the release schedule, but due to IP over-exposure, not development time.  ACU has 4 years of dev underneath it.  These kinds of issues should have never made it past internal bug testing.
