1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 8/29/14 -- Labor Day Weekend Edition! on: Today at 04:41:18 AM

Quote from: Caine on August 29, 2014, 02:51:28 PM

I'll be going through Diablo for the ??th time, with the Crusader.  If not on console, I'll load up Elite and progress some more until I can upgrade to a nicer ship.

Got all of my time spent gaming with D3 and getting my crusader up to level 40.  Didn't get near enough time in as I hoped or expected to though.

Interested in what they do with the Vita entry for Ys.  I really enjoyed the Celceta and it stands as the only JRPG I've finished in the last 15 years.

Took out my first nemesis last night from Rittchard.  Managed to take him out in a rather Pyrrhic fashion though as he dropped some of those flame sprinkler attacks just before he died and caught me in in the middle of them with no where to escape.  I died just afterwards but got the loot from the kill. 

I also got my first legendary, which I only ever got in vanilla after 1 3/4 playthroughs and got to send another out to someone.  I love the faster leveling at expert, even though the loot tends to have a shorter lifespan before I find something to replace it.  Still, so much fun.

You can expect a nemesis from me at some point, but admittedly, it shouldn't pose much challenge.  I turned it up to Elite difficulty and got ganked by a gang of blues.

I love the Underworld flicks, and love Kate Beckinsale.  Will be tough to find a replacement.  Maybe Chloe Grace Moretz, she can kick ass (pun intended) and has played a vampire before.
Oh I hope not.  She looks way too young.  Maybe a side-kick or something, but they need someone with a little more presence I think.

That extra polish, where crack teams of level designers hand place those crates and overhanging ledges that you inexplicably climb onto during chase scenes.

Believe it or not, but they've actually completely overhauled the control scheme for this game, and what you're describing is no longer going to be an issue. From what I understand, you've got a dedicated button for running that won't send you up walls, a button that makes you climb up, and a button that makes you climb or jump down in a safe way. They even made fun of the same thing as you in one of their recent videos and bragged about how they've solved that problem completely.

I really want to believe, but after buying Black Flag and being bummed that the same old controls were there I'm pretty hesitant to jump in again.  I'm glad they are at least acknowledging the problem and trying to correct it, though.
Yeah, I want to believe too.  (cue X-Files poster) I actually think they will fix this in ACU though, but making fun of AC's not-so-free running is as old as GTA's wonky player animations and Res Evil tank controls.

doh!  Do they let you cancel digital pre orders?

They do but now i'm wondering if I need all the preorder junk in my house. smile I'll ruminate on it.
Do it.  The expansion pack alone is $35, so the extra goodies are damn near free.  At least, that's my justification.

I need to forgo my usual routine and skip all the exploration stuff.  So glad that they let you start at higher difficulties though.  I only got enough time to bring my crusader up to level 13.  You do notice how different this is from D3 at launch though.  Loot tables are much better now.

In my small attempt to not spend any money buying Diablo 3 yet, I will devote time to Elite Dangerous when I am home and Counterspy when I'm away. 
I beat level 2 of 'Avoid buying Diablo 3', got almost no time in with Elite and managed to beat Counterspy, despite how much the random enemy placement pissed me off.

Oh and "video" power sucks so far so I don't even expect to use it much.

I had the same immediate impression, but it quickly grew into my favorite power.
I sucks early on but gets better once you power it up.  I hated it too until I did that.

Still trying to find an LE or a digital guardian for the XB1.

Wish I had a PS4 then we could hold hands and conquer the universe together.   The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you.
Damn.  I think I saw a post on CAG that XB1 Limited editions had been available.  Not at the moment though.  I would have figured you would have already had a Ghost edition though.

Today, I’m pleased to announce we’ve been acquired by Amazon. We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster. We’re keeping most everything the same: our office, our employees, our brand, and most importantly our independence. But with Amazon’s support we’ll have the resources to bring you an even better Twitch.

$970 million in cash.  Whoa

Notably (and thankfully, imo) it misses the following aspects from every bad boss encounter you surely hate:

Timed battle (bonus points for not having this, plus a few more for not being an invisible timer)
Regular un-avoidable attack that does massive damage unless you do a very specific counter/block/move at the exact moment.  
Resistant against all attacks except your special moves.  
38  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon buying Twitch? on: August 25, 2014, 06:54:59 PM
That's funny.  I thought that Google was going to do it.  Wonder how this will play out with the music IP crackdown they just implemented and whether Google will break the export to youtube that twitch has used.  Or if Amazon will and force you to export videos somewhere else.
