44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (8/18) on: August 17, 2015, 04:27:11 AM
Summer ending soon.  All the signs are there.  School supplies have already supplanted the last of the summer items, the nights start getting longer and all manner of games seek a release schedule before the busy season begins.  Let's see what's hitting the shelves this week.  A port of a once-exclusive launch title, a stealth title mix of Robin Hood and Neuromancer and a PC port of a console port of a old PSP title.

Quote from: Soulchilde on August 11, 2015, 06:27:27 PM

I'm not a fan of exclusive content (Hello, Destiny) but according to Square Enix  Without MS support the game probably wouldn't have been made.  This sort of sound like what Sony did for Street Fighter 5 (which the XB1 will never see).  Also, I know you're not a fan of Polygon, but that's where I originally read the story

I want to circle back to Destiny, MS couldn't even promote the game on their system and Destiny was basically being shown as a Sony exclusive.   Only distinction is that MS console owners got the game at the same time with less content even after two expansion with more exclusive timed content going to Sony


Again, getting a 3rd part game as an exclusive sucks no matter which console marker does it
Amen to that, SC.  

I am waiting until the PS4 gets it, then I will show them that yes, they still have customers who support them on Sony.  TBH, I will use the gap to play the other games this year.  I can wait.

Back to Witcher 3.  I need to hit this game hard before the month ends.  If I get the urge, I may fire up Galak-Z as well.  PC?  not sure, maybe Invisible Inc. if I get it before the sale ends.
I played a few hours of Witcher, but at this pace, I doubt I'll be able to finish it off any time soon.  I also got a chunk of time playing Talos Principle and was determined to not be a full human being.

I can't tell if there is a story.  It's all there in the description.  You heist randomized locations in a few settings using abilities you purchase from your loot. 

As for the controls, yeah, I definitely wish they were tighter, like Mark of the Ninja, for example, but instead have quite a few instances of detection/death due to flaky controls and imprecise actions.  You do adjust to it so it's not a game ender though.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (8/11) on: August 10, 2015, 02:41:26 AM
Has it hit you yet?  How little time we have left in the summer, how little time before the fall onslaught begins.  Your backlog games look at you longingly from the shelf, hoping to be finished before you completely forget about them.  Looking back, I had "so much time" to finish and fully explore games like Witcher and Arkham Knight, and now, I rush through knowing I'll be skipping everything outside the critical path.  And yet, here we have another set of games to consider.  Are you in the same boat as I am and what, if anything are you interested in buying this week?

Did not know that.  I'll check and see how it's changed.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: August 07, 2015, 09:58:30 PM
if you see my last post' timestamp, it was long before Derek Smart made his comments.  I've had this fear about the game back while you were still able to buy a ship with lifetime insurance and no end to the funding campaign.  I've been following it since it was announced, despite not putting money into it.  I made a point to not buy into the hype and spend anything on a slick presentation and lofty goals. 

I very much want the game to succeed, but as a future buyer, I cannot feel a bit dismayed by when the team spends time building and designing all of these secondary systems instead of showing off what  I consider to be fun but completely optional components for what is basically a space combat and trading sim.  I have tons of respect for Chris' previous games and remember them all fondly.  I don't need to know that each and every thread of the armor my avatar is wearing was crafted as if it really existed, or that the threads in my simulated space chair was crafted with individual components for a "more realistic sitting position".  I'm exaggerating of course, but you get the drift.  The focus on the tiniest of details rather than the universe of space combat that the game started as makes me a bit weary when I see major developments in the game's side activities instead of the core. 

I did like the end of the cast where they showed off the mult-crew ships with a full combat sequence.  That's what the game needs more of imho.

Back to Witcher 3.  I need to hit this game hard before the month ends.  If I get the urge, I may fire up Galak-Z as well.  PC?  not sure, maybe Invisible Inc. if I get it before the sale ends.

So their big Gamescom conference was today and they highlighted Second Life: Star Citizen edition, er, the Social Module. 

It all looks very nice and slick, but after watching it, I'm falling into the  "where's the space sim you promised?/why are you spending so much time on secondary/tertiary aspects now?" camp.

They then went on to detail the FPS module and how they seemingly want to rebuild it so it isn't like every FPS game ever made.  Again, looks great, but it's insane the level of detail they are putting into it, for god knows how much benefit to the gamer.

Lego Dimensions - Gameplay demo

Man, these guys really knew what properties to get to hit that geek demographic.  The prices all seem too high for me to want to jump in on another "toys to life" game, but I'll be damned if they don't keep tempting me with Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Simpsons, etc etc.  And being able to use any character in any set is fixing exactly what Disney Infinity got so wrong.
Right with you there, E9, especially with the open stages this has vs. how Skylanders and Disney Infinity do it.

17 minutes of destruction action

Coming Summer 2016

For the first time since Red Faction Guerrilla, I feel like a game finally takes the world and lets you wreak havoc like never before.  Other games have done it, like Battlefield and Just Cause, but there were limited to the restrictions of older consoles or lesser architecture. 

Sadly, this destruction only goes as far as the MP game though.

So more details emerged in a live stream today:

You can interrogate rival mob members in your car and get the option to spare or take them out after they spill their guts. 
Your lieutenants can have some useful side abilities (Ex: Burke can call off cops in pursuit)

The live streamed a bit of new gameplay and this looks pretty good.  The interplay of vehicle and on foot combat looks great.
