I have never noticed it.  Wonder why it's from only from afar as well

um, it's not only from afar, he's telling you to do it from afar so you can find the level before you are fighting it.
bingo.  Hark wins one cookie.

I have now cleared out the lower eastern half of the Hinterlands map and realized that there was a great big piece of the map on the west side, just waiting to be explored.  This game is bigger than I thought. 

In case anyone wants it, I have a spare code for the Flames of the Inquisition weapons on PS4.  They are more entry level weapons, but the dagger is still pretty useful at level 6.

Very nice.  I really hope this doesn't get pushed back further as it would be a great game to dive into without distractions.

One thing that I noticed that might help RE enemy encounters.  If you target them from far enough away, you can get their level.  It is a bit odd that the level difference doesn't always mean much.  I ran into a group of 8's with my party (mix of 4 and 5's) and we wiped the floor with them.  I'm guessing that this early on, the level doesn't play that big a part as everyone is using basic equipment.  I did stumble on to a much higher enemy in the Hinterlands who quickly wiped the tank, mage and rogue.  I ran away as I haven't found the holy hand grenade to take it on just yet. 

This game is pulling me away from FC4.  I just wish they had let you remap buttons as the remote play is forcing you to use the main attack button via back touchpad instead of R1 (which is useless paired with active powers modifier)

"We've had game critics out to try our new game.  Ignore anything they might say about it; just buy it and experience the finished product for yourself!"

That's exactly what Bungie said about Destiny. This is becoming a trend.
Yes, and not a good one.  Do they think the reviews are bad because reviewers have somehow banded together to pan their games?  Now, if they are weary of the over-critical eye being used on every last flaw, then they should be doing something to make sure those flaws get ironed out or never get out of beta if they aren't good to begin with.

Ran into a small bug last night.  I was turning in a requisition and saw the quest market pop over the officer, but when I talked to them, all I got was the VO, not the dialog wheel.  I went to another quest person, got the same result.  Thankfully, it worked after a game restart, so I didn't lose much time.

Question #2 is addressed here.

Sort of. I've been to the blacksmith, but Bianca isn't listed as an option at either the "Craft Weapons" or "Modify Weapons" station.  There's no dialog option that seems to upgrade it either. 

I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious here...

Did you switch to Verric's character in the blacksmith screen? I upgraded Bianca at the blacksmith but I'm pretty sure you have to press down or up on the D-pad to cycle your characters. Otherwise all you get in the upgrade screen is the unequipped items and the items your currently selected character is wearing.

Thanks, that actually explains alot.  I hadn't been switching characters, and couldn't figure out for the life of me why a bunch of my weapons and armor weren't showing up in the upgrade screen.
This is good to know.  I hadn't started upgrading my equipment yet, but I do have some schematics for improving that weapon.  I also wondered why the crafting seemed to only display equipment for the chosen character.

101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (11/25) on: November 24, 2014, 05:11:36 AM
This week is much like the one after a snowstorm rolls through where everyone looks at what's coming next with relief.  All the big releases of the year are out and absorbing much of our time and those games that come are either quite niche or are so likely to be picked up by unkowing grandmothers for little Bobby and his "NintendoPlayBox".

Let's see what hits this week

PS4
Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed
Speakeasy
Thomas Was Alone
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions
Aqua Kitty DX

XB1
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

PS3
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

360
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

WiiU
Thomas Was Alone
Kenji: Rise of a Hero
Mighty Final Fight
Super Mario Ball
Penguins of Madagascar

3DS
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
Penguins of Madagascar

Vita
Aqua Kitty DX

PC
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions

So, what are you getting? 

Myself, I'm letting my wallet rest, at least in terms of games.  Steam sales be damned.

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. 
113  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. 
114  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.
