Bull hit it on the head:  Assault Suit Leynos, or aka Target Earth is the remake and from the looks of it, has done a good job of capturing the spirit of the game while updating some of the core aspects of it.  I am picking that one up, and possibly Song of the Deep as an underwater metroidvania game sounds awesome.  Necropolis is also looking good, and I was able to watch a bit of someone streaming it last night.  I'll wait on that for now though until I see how deep the combat is.

I remember looking at reviews for the PS4 version when it was last cheap on the store.  Despite liking the demo on PC way back in the day, I decided that the amount of new issues reportedly affecting the HD port were enough to walk away from it.  How bad has it been on a technical level?

I'd like to send a big thanks to E#9 for taking over the post while I was away and totally not slacking off.  Looking at the list, we have a remake of one of my favorite Genesis titles of all time.  I played through it many times and that was not just because I was a broke ass kid.  There's also a new entry in the "brutal difficulty" genre on PC and an underwater exploration game.

I haven't purchased anything on the Steam sale. Thus far it's just a complete meh.

Same here.  There's a few I was interested in, but they're all still to expensive (over $20).

I looked at everything, then looked twice and also did the whole "discovery queue" to see if there was anything interesting that steam had hidden away.  Then I bought Dying Light for a replay on PC and haven't looked back.  I'm on my last week at this job and don't have anything immediately lined up, so that pretty much ends my "backlog growing" stage.  I anticipate I might get time for that hopeless project:  backlog clearing while looking for a new position and cancelling all my medical appointments to the chagrin of my doctors while getting some useful advice from the company representative, such as changing my resume's font and adding some new tech buzzwords in an attempt to sound current.  I will be looking at reviews for the Spiders game and telling my son why we aren't immediately getting another Lego game.  (he still hasn't finished the last few)

Thank you E9.  We took a small break in no-net land and by the time we returned last night, I was too weary to even flip the pc on.

Worse still, his car was recently included in a recall for this very thing:

http://jalopnik.com/fiat-chrysler-is-recalling-1-1-million-cars-because-peo-1772561060#_ga=1.253950336.901381851.1379512541

The voluntary recall was made as the shifter led to 41 confirmed injuries. 

Quote
THE CONTACT OWNS A 2015 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. WHILE THE ELECTRONIC SHIFTER WAS IN PARK, THE VEHICLE INDEPENDENTLY MOVED BACKWARDS AND STRUCK ANOTHER VEHICLE. THERE WERE NO INJURIES AND A POLICE REPORT WAS NOT FILED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE MECHANIC WHO STATED THAT THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE BUMPER WAS DAMAGED AND NEEDED TO BE REPAIRED.

Quote
THE JEEP’S ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION DID NOT FULLY SHIFT IN TO THE “PARK” POSITION WHILE STILL RUNNING. MY WIFE EXITED THE VEHICLE TO TAKE OUR 3 YEAR OLD FROM THE BACK SEAT AND THE JEEP BEGAN TO ROLL AWAY. SHE RAN AND JUMPED IN TO THE DRIVER’S SEAT TO STOP IT AND IN THE PROCESS HER FOOT SLIPPED FROM THE BRAKE TO THE GAS PEDAL DRIVING THE CAR INTO/THROUGH A HOUSE. SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE WAS DONE TO THE VEHICLE AND THE HOME BUT NO ONE WAS INJURED.

From another news item on Yelchin
Quote
Yelchin, 27, died in an unusual and horrifying incident early Sunday morning when his SUV—a Jeep Grand Cherokee—was left in neutral and apparently rolled down his driveway when he was outside of it, crushing him into a mailbox.

It's sad that the car was recalled and that Anton wasn't aware of the risk posed by the design when he drove it.

I'm curious about Mighty No. 9, but I don't know if I'm curious enough to buy it.  If the reviews are stellar, that could change.


And stellar they are not.  Sheesh.  Reviews are hovering in the 50% range.

Wow.  That is both amazing and shocking given how anticipated this game has been.  Graphics that are retro, but not up to the last game in the MM series, and worst of all, a gameplay mechanic that is both imprecise and used to justify some tricky jumps.

While we skipped this, and Infinity as well, my son expressed some interest in the figures that Lego has for the game.  Mostly, I think he just wants the blocks and figures though and doesn't care about the game aspect.  I lucked out in that they only got in two of the Skylander's games and have skipped the last one and the new one coming hasn't piqued their interest either. 

As for the locked content, it's a bit like how it worked in Skylanders.  You constantly were coming across things that could only be opened with certain character types, or in Trap Team, bosses you could only collect with the proper trap.  Same mechanic, different presentation.  Before we had a figure for every type, it was always a case of "dad, can we get a figure to open this?".  Thankfully, I am at least happy that the base game was perfectly beatable with the basic characters you got in the box and none of the side content was a large as the adventure sets in Dimensions.  Skylanders level expansions were triggered by placing down level items, not something you wandered across in the world. 
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: June 14, 2016, 02:26:29 PM
That's nice of them offering the device for free to people who sign up, but holy crap, $50 for what amounts to a USB adapter? 

Anyone currently thinking of upgrading?  I would consider it for a larger HD option (500gb seemed like such a big number back then, didn't it?), but my current contract is up in the air, so I may not have a guaranteed income to spend on luxuries.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2016 Full games list/Live coverage thread - Sony @ 9pm ET on: June 14, 2016, 02:21:40 PM
I had heard something about  a demo, but it was in a side interview with one of the id guys outside of a major conference.  I assume they said something during the BE3 conference?  Thanks for putting that information out there, E9.

Again, I believe that a big part of one's opinion about who was strong is based on how interested you were in the games you were shown.  I do think that Scorpio was a great send off, but it's a long ways off and full of vague claims at this point.  I actually was glad they showed us such a large gameplay demo of Days Gone, but they should have had that alongside the initial reveal and saved something big for the end.  I certainly think it was a better showing than what we saw of DR4 or SoD2, which were short edited trailers.  For the record, I am very excited for SoD2 as I enjoyed the first quite a bit.  I've never been a huge fan of DR's style or mechanics and i like how Days Gone looks and the approach they seem to be going for.

Man, I kind of feel like Microsoft ate Sony's lunch when you compare those two press conferences.  

Sony didn't have a ton of things that interested me other than a viking God of War.  And a lot of what Sony showed is still sort of future promises (Kojima thing, Horizon, Crash remasters, Spiderman, etc).

Days Gone seemed kind of interesting but also super shallow.  Compared to what Dead Rising 4 has in over-the-top craziness and State of Decay 2 brings with depth and management and coop open world action, it seemed like the only thing it had was a bunch of flowing zombies.

A lot comes down to what games you are interested in.  Not counting the montage clips they both used (ID, ending rolls), the games shown count up like this:
Xbox One - 10/16 Exclusive/Multi-platform
Sony - 10/13 Exclusive/Multi-platform

Sony spent more time per game, with longer gameplay demos instead of just trailers.  Out of the 10 exclusives on each side, I was interested in 5 on MS, and 7 on PS.  I would not call it a rout the way most on twitter are calling (with Sony being the top dog, btw), but given which games I am hyped for, I would say that Sony was stronger in my case.

fwiw, I am looking forward to 6 of the games Ubi showed us.
