no, it isn't even a glimmer in their eye any more.  that ship has launched, only to be lost in the supernova of a star.

Maybe they'll use the XBLA version of Torchlight to test out the co-op code going into Torchlight 2.

That would be too good to even dream for. I'll be very surprised though if the features aren't the same as the base PC game.

The translation from PC to console controls are detailed at Eurogamer.

As enemies can't be click-selected, you now move forwards slightly with each swing, smashing whatever is closest (this will be highlighted red) and bruising anything nearby. Animations have been "redone" accordingly, and it all "feels natural and does what you expect", apparently.

Yup, this sounds quite similar to the differences in control between the PC and 360 versions of Dragon Age. Much to my surprise I actually prefer the 360 control scheme and have enjoyed that version more. Since I haven't played Torchlight yet I might eventually consider the 360 version, just as long as it doesn't cost over 1200 pts.

sadly, it is 1200 points.  saw a post earlier.

as far as money goes, i found something very expensive (i'm level 23 I think)
Spoiler for Hiden:
I got an offer to buy a house for 50,000 auras

there's also a rather expensive business venture you can take part in.  it hasn't returned on the value so far but i'm hoping it pays out in the long run.  as for money, at level 25 i am never that rich at one time.  always looking at upgrading my base weapons with a better one and getting anything with useful gems.  still haven't passed the first chapter but i am close though.

I stopped using any of the weapons a while ago. I still have the armor though but that's only as I don't know if it's better than any of the individual pieces I have found since.

Both of my two-handed weapons were drops.
6727  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Two Worlds 2 on: February 07, 2011, 10:04:18 PM
The bashing weapons do improve as you go on. I am sticking with my two handed sword or club and the club does about 30-40 more. This is at level 22 and after the strength skill kicks in, the weapon skill is over 600. Every level of upgrade adds about 15 to damage and I had no problems going through the first 7 levels of the arena battles. I even did pretty well against a werewolf once I learned to get out of his charge attack. I would not want to face more than oneat a time.

Wow the Packers have completely disappeared.  They aren't doing shit!

This is why QBs who perform well minus their top WR are more impressive to me than those who had their guys most of the season.  Driver goes down and now the other guys cannot get open as easily.

idk there's been at leasat 3 HUGE drops by the Packers receivers where Rodgers hit them right in the hands.
At least it isn't a boring game.

Wait until you get to the higher level locks. You really need to get proficient with changing direction as you can't wait until it comes around unless you bump that skill up.

Quote from: Caine on February 05, 2011, 07:51:02 PM

i am playing a mostly melee character using 2h weapons with some archery for kiting enemies and hunting.  i read that magic is insanely powerful at the later levels but due to the way you build your character, you really benefit from multi-classing, and not just how that regards armor.  i guess getting your relevant magic affinities up so you can use more spell modifiers can make most encounters trivial.  apparently the best weapon is also a staff whereas the best melee weapon tops out at a relatively low level and relies more on brute strength to make up for it. 

there are very few useless skills, but the backstab skill is pretty much ineffective outside of some random moments.  i have it and regret putting the points into it as it only allows you to stab from further away, which makes no sense.  unless it allows you to stay hidden further away and therefore, tele-stab enemies outside of their field of vision, you will always get spotted before you can get more than one or two backstabs.  it's only use is for achievement hunting and the only reason i even bother.  it may be more useful if you rely on traps for crowd control.  that's also why the poison arrows are less effective than the other archery skills.  it drains them out too slowly.  it might make a difference if you can stay away from a huge mob who would crush you in one hit though. 

in my main, i have counter, block breaker and defensive stance as my main skills with the radial hit and the kick as secondary attacks.  i think the other skills would be great if you want to specialize in certain forms of melee combat though as you can do quite a few tricks

as for loot, i tend to stick with breaking down all the lower level stuff ( you can tell an item's relative value by the number next to the star).  anything that is close to my current gear gets saved for sale and everything that's usually trash loot, i break down.  but once you have done most of the main island, you will probably be flush with just about everything except fabric, especially as you face a lot of groms with bows and those give you several wood, steel and iron from both the bow and the quiver.  i usually keep the staves to sell as you only get wood from them.  then i break down stuff that's heavy if i am not able to port back to town, but you don't need to as the stuff stays on the ground for quite a long time and you can usually stash it away in a chest or something while you go back. 

the crafting skills are you friend imo.  they allow you to upgrade your weapons considerably and make the most difference for damage output and armor class.  even a nuke wizard will benefit as it will help you buff  your spells up via more crystal slots.  that's the next thing too, if you start seeing more crystals that you can't slot into your equipment, increase the skill to let you use them.  it also lets you fuse higher quality gems together.  you should do that whenever you get more than one of the same item, at least of the lowest quality as you don't lose anything in the process, just reduce the quantity of slots you need to get the most benefit. 

it pays to explore the whole of the main island once you get into the teens as you can generally take on anything that you face and are more than likely going to wipe anything above ground, but also as you can find some skill books in out of the way spots.  i already have both the weapon and armor crafting skills even though i don't have my levels in metallurgy high enough to use them.  it did allow me an extra upgrade for "free" though without bumping the metallurgy skill. 

i mentioned it before, but you do get extra skill points for hitting certain benchmarks in the game.  killing x number of mobs, opening x locked chests, at intervals for finding portal stones, etc.  it pays to watch those and also benefits multi classing (as you have more actions to perform which gives you more ways to earn skill points). 

i don't know if a pure class is easy as you will always have some benefit from using another class specialty.  i plan on going through sp with my melee/ranger and mp as a battlemage. within the same class though, it pays to not spread your skills too thin.  it also pays not to spread your attributes too wide either as you can't respec those and i have no use for high wisdom in my build at all. 

sorry for the long winded post...

oh, and myto, i am happy to see you picked this up.  figured you would like this one

do you feel comfortable enough with rooting your phone? If so get the evo, I believe that's already rooted and then you don't have to worry about the updates. Just grab a rom and you're good to go. IMO, everyone should root their phone if you can. The amount of different roms out there are amazing.I'm running MIUI on my droid and it's absolutely fantastic. Incredibly fast with lots of good extras.

rooting is simple and almost impossible to brick your phone.

thanks jersoc.  i am leaning towards the evo barring any major objections and while i have never rooted or jailbroke any of my phones, i have done that with the psp in the day so i am interested in what i can get outside of the standard oobe.

i did get a chance to play with both of those, and the evo shift and like what i saw in the evo.  not being able to easily view the screen in the sunlight isn't something i was aware of, so that's a pretty big knock against the screen, no matter how pretty it is, imo.  it's not like i do a ton of work outside, but that would be annoying to have to shield it just to read what's on it.  i definitely liked the solid design of the evo vs the epic.  that htc is more attuned to updating the os is a good thing too.

just to clarify because i'm not sure from your post which phone worries you, but i think the screen on the Evo does surprisingly well in bright sunlight...not perfect, but it's definitely useable without having to search for shade.  i haven't seen the Epic used outside (or any other OLED screen phone for that matter), but it seems that i've heard more complaints about them.  

Quote
living in the seattle metro area, it appears that 4g is live in most of the areas i frequent with some spottiness here and there.  that's acceptable as i haven't been able to keep a call on at&t going from one county to the next anyways.  it will be a nice boost whenever i am at work or home (hopefully) and certainly while riding back and forth.

keep in mind that 4G is primarily a data service is not really responsible for handling phone calls...those are still handled by Sprint's CDMA cellular network.  think of 4G service more as mobile broadband that you use to speed up the data functions of your phone.  in a phone like the Evo, there are separate radio systems for calling and 4G...that's why you can turn 4G functionality on and off separately from everything else and conserve your battery a little.  the separate 4G radio also has the advantage of making Sprint 4G phones the only ones on their service capable of simultaneous data and voice use without a wifi connection.  Sprint's CDMA technology normally keeps you from talking and using 3G data service at the same time (same with Verizon), but having a 4G connection available allows you to do both at the same time...a nice little perk sometimes.  confused yet?

no, not quite.  thanks for pointing that out.  i hadn't even considered that aspect of the service (being able to use both simultaneously).  that will be great and it eliminates one advantage that i like about at&t.  

as for the screen, i was referring to the amoled screens and the epic.  i did notice the better quality on the epic but if that means it's more troublesome in the sunlight, it loses some of that advantage imo.

Quote from: Chaz on February 05, 2011, 07:53:46 PM

I'm pretty sure that when you change service away from the iphone, it basically turns into an ipod touch.  I haven't booted up my 3g in a while, but I was definitely able to access apps and get onto my home wireless network with mine a few weeks after ditching it in favor of a Droid Incredible in December.
thank you chaz.  that's reassuring then.

also buried in one of the interface taba iirc is a setting that puts the hud elements in a "safe" screen real estate vs edge of it.  i was having the hardest time trying to see what equipment i had as the first 4 or so characters were off screen.  even played with the tv's system settings (boy, was that ever fun) to see if i could squeeze any more screen out of the tv. 

turns out, there was a setting the whole time that fixed it in a snap.  :headslap

i really think the game warrants more than a 5.5.  while it isn't perfect, it is a ton of fun and has a lot going for it.  i certainly like this a ton more than the last imperfect rpg i played.  yes, i am still looking at you fable 3  finger

it also isn't prone to any sort of bugs or crashing or any of that stuff, so why this scores lower than fonv is curious. 

i really think this one should have been named something else as the stigma of the first has colored a lot of people's opinions it seems.  but give it a few hours, at least until you get to the first big island and had a chance to see everything the game has to offer.  the tutorial island doesn't give you the whole picture.  and of course, if you are not as big into loot whoring and crafting, the game would get on your nerves. 

i also think you won't get this type of complete rpg experience in a mp game.  they really did a great job fleshing that out without leaving you with a bunch of half baked options in both sp and mp. 

i haven't done much in it myself, but i would love to start up with people and go through the mp campaign.

i didn't go with the move bundle as they had none in stock at costco at the time and i was still unsure how much i would end up using it.  (i have since gone with the kinect for my flail/waggle gaming).  i really love how quiet it is compared to the old 60gb and while i don't see myself using the extra space over that unit, it's always nice to have extra storage. 

i do keep the old one on the shelf just in case i ever figure out what's wrong with it as i now would need to hook up the older launch ps2 to play anything in that library.  amazing as that unit outlived its successor. 

curious, how did yours die?  mine powered off one day while playing a movie and never came back on.  it will occasionally blink red at you when you power cycle it, but only for a second.

PM me and I can get you the referral link and codes to work to join the Sprint EPRP side...it's a lot cheaper than the normal Sprint plan.  The only reason to not use it would be a corporate discount through your work of at least 15%.  EPRP price for Sprint Everything Plus is $60 a month, includes nights and weekends at 7p, unlimited text, unlimited internet, unlimited mobile to any other mobile and GPS.  Keep in mind that any smartphone on Sprint now has a $10 4G surcharge so the total price for the Evo or Edge would be $70 a month.  The family plan price (2 lines, 1600 shared minutes) with 2 4G phones would be $130 a month (including the surcharge).
thank's ericb.  we are getting two phones with the discount via my wife's work.  i kind of doubt she'll be getting a 4g phone as she barely uses any of that as it is now.  she thinks it's 25% but needs to get something to show the sprint reps.  the rep in the store told us she could give us 23% off the regular price but i won't know how well that offer holds until i go back.  like i said, we have a little bit of time before we get out of at&t's grasp, so i can compare them.

thank you everyone. 
6749  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dumping AT&T for Sprint on: February 05, 2011, 04:11:15 AM
so, we've decided over the last few months to switch service as paying $150 a month for two phones is really not all that great considering how poor the service has been getting lately.  plus, i want to see how things are outside of apple's influence and how far the competition has gotten in the last two years.  we will be getting a decent discount on service, which is why we aren't looking at the other two providers.

I am looking at both of the current 4g phones, the htc evo and the samsung epic.  what i need to know outside of the reviews, which seem to favor the epic for the screen and the keyboard and the evo for the interface, is for those of you who have used them, what kind of experience should i expect from them vs a 3g iphone?  which aspects make the most difference?  for reference, i have never adjusted to the iphone text entry and avoid using it for anything other than basic navigation.  it seems the swype keyboard works much better than the older models and of course, the epic has the slide out keyboard.

of course, from some of the reviews, there isn't a clear winner between the two.  they each do something better than the other one does with a slight edge for either model based on how the reviewer favors those differences. 

which leads me to the next thing; how close is sprint to the next best phone and should i wait until then for either a price drop on these ones or some cool new tech?  our contract is up some within a month so it's not like i am going to go out and get one tomorrow despite how cool they looked in the store.  i did play with them a bit but obviously, that's not much more than a first impression. 

as for the future, i assume these are updated with newer OS' as time goes on.  how well does htc do vs samsung in this regard? 

and finally, with the 3g iphone, i have had a number of games/apps over the last year and yeah, i know none of them are going to transfer.  but the phone still works as a decent ipod touch.  how do i keep at&t's mitts off of it so the phone doesn't turn into a fancy looking brick as soon as sprint transfers service?  fwiw, it's still on the older ios 3 prior to 3.13 as it has repeatedly refused to upgrade itself.  i could sell it but that might be more hassle than it's worth.

so, what would be your best course of action?

It pays to look at thier icons so you can use the right weapon and armor, especially if you start getting wiped in a few hits.

Icons?  I must have not have noticed those.  I need to lok and see fi there is a pdf version of the manual that hopefully explains the spell screem better.  I miss the drag and drop screen from TW1.  I also notcied the fire spell area of effect looked pretty wimpy for the damage it seemed to be doing.
check the icons but basically, if they have either the sword or the hammer symbol with a shield around it, they are resistant to that type of damage.  the icons show up on the screen in the lower middle section.

Biggest to come to mind not already mentioned. Inception.

I love movies with twist/shock endings. Having watched Inception and Shutter Island recently (and finally), I'm wanting to compile a list of movies with "twist" (or shock) endings, or some kind of revelation or turn of events at the end which makes you re-think, and want to re-watch, the movie fr
om a different perspective. What good ones can I put on this list? I know there's a bunch. Thanks!

ah, it was early.

Ok, sub the outer Nolan movie, the prestige.  That had a twist at the end.  There was a foreign film about ww2 and a village that escaped, with the end showing the main character sitting among other captives on a train, having fantacized the whole thing as his way of dealing with his grief. Don't know the name anymore.

I went back at level 16 and wiped them out.

I just hit level 20 last night and have mapped out all of the second island. I found a pretty cool dungeon which ran along for a while and had a number of enemies of different types. It pays to look at thier icons so you can use the right weapon and armor, especially if you start getting wiped in a few hits. I have a strong two handed weapon for both of the main damage types with some extra elemental damage tacked on.

Don't ignore the crystals. They can really help buff your character.

That's definitely true. The first hour is a little long but it does cover pretty much everything you need to know. There are a few quests after the first island that cover horse riding and alchemy, but everything else is set up before you leave the island. 

After that, once you get in tune with the combat and a few more abilities, it all clicks together.

even worse, it wasn't because of anything they have against the dev or the sight of a former ms game getting released by a third party.  it was that the file size was over the magical limit of 2gb for downloadable addons/arcade games.  anyone with a brain pointed it out that most of the xbox originals were over that size and of course the 360 games on the marketplace are usually much larger than that.  MS still doesn't get it. 

oh well, i still have my copy from the steam sale and at a lot cheaper than a xbla release would ever be.

nice choice of pictures there pug biggrin

btw, that dss unit is a huge improvement over the non-amped sound.  very happy with it.  i do wish i had spent the extra coin for another cable and a switchbox though as swapping out the optical for the ps3 and xbox is a pita.  too bad the dss doesn't have an optical out as that would have made things easier.

I'd love a new one. Maybe remnant battles or a new alien menence...or perhaps an old one seeking weakness in the new break up. But I want more squad stuff. I don't like being alone in Halo games. Heck I'd like to see Halo given the Fallout Tactics treatment. BTW the Halo games need MORE WEAPONS.
yeah, it's a shame they never made another halo game after 3. biggrin

you need to get Reach and play through on the higher difficulty levels at least once after you have finished it.  a solo legendary run is pretty bad ass once you finish it as you never expect you can make it alone.  it is a great way to fine-tune your tactics.
