82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (04/07) on: April 07, 2014, 03:57:59 AM
So, this week we get to see how well EA did with Titanfall without all that fancy next-gen capability (running in 30fps, I hear) and if Kinect Sports is better with Kinect 2.0.  Next Gen also gets a package deal of popular PC Macross-like shooter.  And we get the nth version of Lego fill-in-the-blanks.  So, what's on your list this week?

well, while I would like to come in here and give an excited 6 year-old's review, I think I'm more excited than he is.  I think this is a great film, and one of my favorites in the MU.  it throws a lot of the world as we see it into chaos and will surely affect Avengers 2.  I  liked the call-outs to other characters and how they brought them into the movie without even needing to show them on screen.  Loved the fight scenes, especially at the end between Cap and WS. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm glad they didn't kill off Bucky, and can't wait to see him in the next CA or Avengers movie in some form.  I'm guessing it will be during Cap 3 when Cap is fighting some new baddie and WS shows up to help or sacrifice himself to save Steve. 

The big bad buy reveal was pretty clearly telegraphed and if anything, perhaps too easy to spot.  it seems out of place until the sequence with the AI, which I didn't quite expect

missed the earlier response, but I don't have any suggestions unfortunately.  what's the Vita get for connection speed? 

Here's what I get at work, which based on the average of 10 tests after removing the highest (DL 16.6/UL 25) and the lowest (DL9.7, UL2.9)

Download (Mbps)
14.2

Upload
13.6
 
this is the most likely cause behind the pixelated performance I've run into, but never resulted in a complete drop.  I'll test more at home when I get a chance. 

I don't get it, but my Vita never gets more than 6 MB/s, even though everything else gets 20-24 MB/s
Here's my results at home, after 8 runs and no major variances
DL
14.2
UL
2.2

I won't get a chance to test this later, but I'll try to use up some of my bandwidth to drop DL down to what you are getting and then test remote play.   

I wonder if my vita wifi is borked?  I just did a bunch of tests from my bedroom and my phone gets 24 mb down and 4.5 mb up.  Vita gets on average 3-4 mb down and 1-2 up.  I tried resetting all the vita settings and it still gets the same.  I wonder if my unit is defective.
not sure there.  fwiw, I get slower tests using speedtest.net through the pc, about 11.5 and 1.6.  not the best connection, but I'm not hosting anything.  I also ran the test with a clean bandwidth usage, so it's surprising that my pc tested lower than the vita. 
86  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: April 05, 2014, 05:43:05 PM
general consensus on the reviews is yes, especially now that they added a survival mode with meteorites and resource management.  I spent some time looking at it as well and am considering pulling the trigger on it myself.  The 4-pack brings it down to about $10 a pop, so within impulse purchase territory in my eyes.

They released a new combat demo video showing some of the various weapon types you can wield. 

game releases on Friday May 9th.

This may be worth a shot if you want an action rpg now that Witcher 3 was delayed and Deep Down is not got a date yet afaik.

hooray for artificially imposed restrictions and purposefully made design choices to screw you if you did anything other than what they wanted.  I hate those kinds of levels.

not able to get out to see it until Sunday, but I'm looking forward to it.

Alienware is sponsoring a $20 pledge upgrade coupon (or start a pledge account). 

as the lower tiers are sold it out it basically gets you in with the first episode for $25. 

the only question remaining is:  is it worth it?

That John McCain disapproves of this increases my respect of the man.  How the court in favor doesn't see the risks with letting the floodgates down is pretty indicative of how much influence the big donors already have.  The message here is clear: If you want your side to have the best campaigns, you need to drop the cash.  Between this and the 2010 ruling about third party spending, we can look forward to more "ruling through deep pockets".   Neither side is immune to this, but I would love to see how much was spent by the parties over the last few years compared to the next election.

so this answer the question behind Ceekay.  'he' was hosted on their servers the whole time and using the power of the cloud to post at all hours of the day.

Are you saying Ceekay is like that Johnny Depp character in the new movie Transcendence??!??!

I don't know, haven't seen the movie yet.  it did have an interesting poster though

I think big action movies, comedies and visual masterpieces (Gravity, maybe?) are well suited as you get the big sound, screen or the first responses from a crowd.  I saw the Cornetto trilogy movies in theater and nothing beats the crowd laughing at the unexpected joke or bit.  

it's also something cool (even while it's odd) when a crowd applauds for the movie after it ends.  I had that happen once.

The scary thing is that even if he never came back, it would take several decades for the other high-ranking posters to catch his post count at current posting rates,
you would actually need to script a bot to overtake him.

I also beat the good playthrough last night and went about trying to get some of the random act trophies like the comet drop and the 45 second flight.  I then restarted to go evil.  I really wish they had let you skip cinematics, but it does help show that Delsin changes as a character during the playthrough.
