161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Midwest Gaming Classic 2014 (4/12-4/13) Bookfield, WI (Image Heavy) on: January 31, 2014, 07:50:14 PM
Just a heads up the Midwest Gaming Classic is getting close. What is it? Its two days of non-stop playing free pinball, arcade games, console games from every gen, computer games, board games, and buying video game stuff. If you have any interest in video games then I highly recommend attending at least once. It's a lot of fun.

I went for the first time last year and documented it in this thread with a bunch of pictures. I will be going again this year.

The event is huge. It basically dominates the entire hotel to the point where I didn't even realize there was a huge vendor hall until the second day. Speaking of which they're expanding this years event by moving the vendor hall out into a new temporary enclosement. They'll be filling the vendor hall with more video games. Crazy.

I played through it twice. It's not FTL, its its own thing, but I had a lot of fun playing through it both times.

I've had good success with this party:
Elf Blade Dancer - Dual Wielding Swords - High Evasion
Human Mercenary - 2 Handed Sword - Good Evasion + Medium Armor
Orc Shaman - Air and Earth Magic - Spear + 2 handed
Dwarf Rune Priest - Fire and Light Magic - Shield + Mace

 

My party consists of:

Crusader - doesn't seem to be landing a lot of hits (working on building up precision)
Bladedancer - pretty awesome damage dealer
Run Priest - fire magic go boom!
Druid - Heals and support spells (also just found that offensive spell poison spray is pretty damn good)

Only problems I've run in to are with the battles I'm not supposed to be fighting. Otherwise we tear it up. I'll also say it would be good to have a second character that can cast a heal. Once my healer goes down and regen isn't going to kick in its pretty much reload time.

There has also seems to be discussion weather ranged weapons (bows/crossbows) are worth it to invest in. I think they are. My characters only have the ranged ability up to the first level (they can't go further). And if I'm firing against mobs that are the level I'm supposed to battle then I'll usually have one killed or nearly dead by the time they take 2-3 steps towards me. You of course can't trade ranged attacks with ranged attackers but melee targets do well as pin cushions. The bread and butter of fighting in this game goes to melee though.

So where to next? I'm in the Act 2 area, in the second major town, and am wandering around aimlessly. Everything I'm hitting seems way above my level. Very unsure of what the next dungeon is supposed to be, or where its located, in this area. Any help?

I finally found where to go. Will spoilerize just in case.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Near the floating tower, in the Yon Chon Forest (sp?) there's basically a singular path you can take there. It leads to a lost city dungeon. I had ignored the forest early as the paths I took just lead to these brigands that tore me up. I figured that area was off limits. But this one path will lead you past any of them and to the next dungeon. That's pretty old school RPG nastiness.

I hit a bug yesterday on the third floor of the lighthouse. I died and reloaded, but after the reload I was unable to move my party. I could look around,. but I couldn't move. Weird bug.

Anyone have any tips on how to actually beat the third floor of the lighthouse, when you open the door there are 2 Naga right in front of you, then two come from behind, and the four of them together slaughter my party?

celestial armour and regen worked wonders there on one of my groups.  The other one (might chars only) had to brute force it and it was a bit tougher.  One of the keys is to not be afraid to use the defend option.

Yeah, those two spells are key to winning some of the difficult fights like that one. If you also are not buffed up I would head outside and grab all little buffs around the lighthouse (gems/statues/etc). And if you have some characters that need to train I would do that. The boss battle in that light house is no easy fight either and you want every advantage you can get.

Crawley, I'm curious what version you have as I haven't seen a patch since the one that came down on the same day I installed it, which was last Friday. Mine shows 1.3.1-14561 on the main menu. Thanks.

Try restarting Steam. There was a patch last night.

That is the version mine shows as well.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X : Legacy on: January 27, 2014, 08:45:03 PM
A patch was released either this morning or the other day that clears up the two issues I mentioned. You need to be connected to uPlay to get it apparently (no launching in offline mode). So I connected and tried it and can confirm the guy blocking the bridge is no longer blocking it. I dunno about the other issue with the greyed out text since I fixed that manually but in a thread others have reported its no longer greyed out for them.

So hopefully that's the end of the annoyances.

 
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X : Legacy on: January 26, 2014, 09:57:01 PM
I think the game is just buggy. Hit another game stopper pretty soon after my last one. Once you do the Elemental Forge area you had back and turn in a quest. This should open up a bridge to the north of where you are allowing you access to the next area. But the guy blocking the bridge is still there. Others reported the same issue, even those that purchase a physical copy so did not have early access. The workaround is to take the caravan from Sorpigal to the next town. It works but you have to pay 150 for it and that guy stays blocking the bridge, meaning you have to pay 150 to go back.

I'm still loving the game but these issues are souring it.
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X : Legacy on: January 26, 2014, 06:08:33 AM
So I finally start doing some new dungeons and advancing the main quest when I find out I can't progress any further. There's an option to go to an "Elemental Forge" but the text is greyed out so you can't go there.

Turns out its copy protection. The problem is I purchased the game during early access so I should not be running in to this. The support solution is to delete the game and all your saves and start over. Nice. So I found the other, hacker solution, which is to comment out a few lines in one of the files. It worked and am able to continue on the game. But totally peeved I had to resort to that for a legit purchase.
173  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [PC/PS3] Final Fantasy XIV (Characters/Servers in first post) on: January 26, 2014, 04:53:31 AM
Oh yeah. As a tank you gotta know the class a bit and each battle going in. If you've been skipping the dungeons I would start doing them as the boss battles there prepare you for the ones later - you can do the low level dungeons and your level range will adjust appropriately. Once you know the mechanics of each boss battle the tank pretty much has it easy. Mechanics are basically: Maintain agro and stay out of the red/white/black/whatever. Later you add interrupts and correct placement to the mix. And then finally learn the various boss patterns, which everyone has to learn regardless.

The MTQcapture videos will be perfect for learning as the player is a tank so they show it from that class perspective.

The second class I'm working up is a marauder and I have to say some of those boss battles are so boring as the tank doesn't do much of anything but have to maintain agro and sometimes move out of the way.

As far as guilds go you can always leave them if you find its not a good fit. My wife does the guild picking so thankfully I don't have to do anything there. Usually she chooses pretty good and we're in a decent one now. Hardly interact with anyone. They're mainly a younger crew but they're super helpful and without them I would not have finished the main L50 weapon quest as quickly as I did without their help.

Yeah, the story bosses are a bit rough. You can probably do all with PUGs but expect a lot of wipes and frustration. Better to get in a guild if not in one. You really need to learn the battles before you join too. I'd recommend MTQcapture's You Tube videos for the boss battles. They are straight and to the point, explained clearly on what to do, and they give decent views of the battles on what to do: http://www.youtube.com/user/MTQcapture
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Might & Magic X being teased on: January 25, 2014, 05:48:46 AM
Yeah, this is much improved from the initial early access release. I played as much as a could during the first phase of that but stayed away after the patches came out. Still in the same areas I covered in early access but its so much better. It looks a lot better to me overall but the big thing is removing all the annoyances. I've done two dungeons now and haven't had a single item break! Before you were getting items breaking every few battles. The vendors now restock with new items. There the largest improvement is there are not enemies attacking you every 10 steps.

I'm really looking forward to moving out of the early access area. Have at least one more dungeon to do then I'm good to go.

Table Pack #22 is out which features Bally's Black Rose.

This was a bit of a surprise since everyone had been expecting Who Dunnit? based on the hint they gave in the newsletter. But a good surprise. Black Rose got released last week on the PC so I've been playing it for a bit. It's a pirate themed game with some fun video modes, a cannon that shoots from between the two flippers, and easy to trigger 2 and 3 ball multiballs. I haven't dug too deep in to it so not sure what its lasting appeal may be but for right now I'd say its a good table but not one I'm clamoring to always play.

So the delay with the Apple release of this table had to do with Apple changing their store policies on how they handle Season Passes. Basically your game can't have them anymore unless it includes all content planned for it. So its back to single table releases on iTunes Store from here on out. Those that have already purchased the Season 3 pack will still get the tables as they are released.

Next month looks to be Black Knight 2000 based on the hint they gave in the Newsletter. The hint seems a bit more obvious so we'll see.

Have to say I'm really enjoying this game. It's rare I'll keep playing an MMO once I reach the level cap but this one I keep going. Getting the first tier of L50 gear is easily doable. You still go to dungeons quite a bit but the T1 gear doesn't drop from the dungeons. You basically play the dungeons so you can get T1 "coin" reward at the end of it. You then just spend that coin at the T1 Gear vendor. So its not like you're replaying dungeons over and over just hoping gear for your class drops, and that someone else doesn't get it. It makes playing the dungeons rather fun as you know what you already know you're getting something useful at the end of it.

And its not difficult to get the T1 "coin". If you choose to do random dungeons you get bonus coins when you complete them. So just completing a random main scenario dungeon and a random low level dungeon will get you enough coin to get one piece of armor. So you can see progression there almost immediately.

Getting your first tier L50 weapon is a major challenge though. It's a long quest where you have to fight a bunch of bosses and those boss fights can be difficult - but very rewarding when you finally take them down.

Along with that they've been releasing some nice little content updates such as quests where you can gain reputation with these two "beast" tribes (which nets the T1 coin too). The ultimate rewards being new mounts. Then they have a bunch of seasonal quests they throw in, which are fun little throw away time sinks with some minor rewards, but still fun. And as silly as it sounds they keep adding new weather effects to the game which are actually pretty damn awesome.

So for me this is the best MMO I've played in quite awhile.

That's funny. I'm noticing the perfect teeth in a lot of shows now where it just stands out.

Even in modern day shows they can bother me. Like in Bates Motel one of the sons has these super white and perfect teeth that stands out in contrast to who his character is supposed to be (poor and a bit of a drifter). So any time he flashes those things it just is a bit jarring to see.

I have an i5 2550k, which is basically the older version of the i5 4670 CPU and haven't had any problems with running games. I think GPU is more important these days. Just about all my games ran fine with the Radeon 7870 at 1680x1050. When I got a higher resolution monitor I purchased a second 7870 and moved to a Crossfire setup. But performance was crap in a lot of games that were not optimized for Crossfire and there were other oddities I was encountering that just ticked me off.

So I tossed that setup and got a overclocked NVidia 780. Games ran smooth as butter with a very few exceptions, like Assassins Creed 4 which has some slowdowns at points, but turning on Nvidia's Adaptive Vsync option smoothed everything out (was blown away it actually worked as described). Its possible the i7 may have smoothed frame rates out naturally but why not save some bucks and put that towards a decent video card which would give more performance oomph than any CPU.

I suspect Thief will run fine on my rig. I have it pre-purchased so will find out when its released.

Whenever there's a Netflix article anywhere I always peek at the comments and sure enough someone complains there no good movies on there. But of they never expand on what constitutes a good movie Netflix needs.

To me Netlfix is a treasure trove of finding movies/shows I've never heard/seen before. Plenty of crappy ones but a surprising number of gems on there. The usual "good movies" I suspect people are wanting I've usually already seen via the movie theater or renting off Amazon/OnDemand/RedBox for a few bucks.

I take it back about people not saying they never expand on saying what their "good movie" choices are. I once saw someone complain Netflix didn't have "Game of Thrones."

Revealing what an old caveman I am, but I never found an Alien game as thrilling as Justin Fischer's Aliens TC [total conversion] for Doom nearly 20 years ago, including digitized voice clips from Cameron's film (you probably wouldn't get away with that today, even for a free mod):

Yup, that was an amazing mod at the time. One of the first total conversions. I can still remember the level where you need to lock down the med-bay.

I do seem to recall there was some cease and desist thing on it. At the time I was working in the AOL games area and seem to recall it had to be removed from our libraries.

I like the survivor horror genre of it so that has me hopeful. Just hoping the puzzles are not simplistic ones where the solution is always in the same room. And the path you follow isn't completely linear. Machine of Pigs did both those things and it wore out it really just killed the entire thing.
187  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: January 06, 2014, 07:37:58 PM
Watched a few things of note of recent:

Warrior: Two brothers prepping for a UFC style completion. Did not expect this one to be as good as it was. The build up to and through the event is pretty incredible.

Jack Reacher: The trailers for this film made it seem like a completely different flick than it was. I thought it was going to be this light hearted action flick but it was a bit dark and took itself more seriously than I was expecting. Actually the trailer scene where Jack gets out of his moving car, walks over to a bunch of people waiting for a bus, and then they hide him from the cops was so out of place in the film it made it seem like they filmed it just for the trailer.

Now the film is not an out of the park. There was no chemistry with the leading lady. And the reveal was pretty unbelievable. But it was a lot better than I was expecting. Wouldn't mind seeing another Jack Reacher film if they made one.

The West Wing: Never caught this when it was on regular TV. Did not care so much for the first three episodes but episode four and on were pretty fantastic. Over the Christmas/News Year break I was doing some major binging. And damn that ending to S1 I can't imagine how shocking that was and how bad it was to wait for the next season to start. I may have made it a whole 20 seconds before having to start up the S2 opener.

Season 2 isn't quite as good as the first season so far. And they seem to kinda just start a plot line then forget about it. Like Sam and the call girl. And the Moira Kelly character from S1, who was terrible BTW, was just dropped in to oblivion apparently. She's not on the show at all and there was no mention of why she is gone. Not that I mind for that particular character.

But still pretty good overall. 5 more seasons to go.

The price for selling those snow globe cards have nosedived since beginning of the Winter sale (when it first started, I sold couple for $0.50 each, now you can't get any higher than $0.2 or so).  I sold every snow globe card I got so far.  With the snow globe cards are going to disappear at the end of the sale, I believe its value will drop like a rock, I probably will buy a set to craft a badge at the end of the sale, if the price for each one is no higher than 5 cents each.  

Alternatively the value could spike as people try to buy up the cards they need to complete their badges before they all expire.

The market is flooded with them I don't think they'll go up. They'll actually probably be cheaper on the last day as I suspect there are quite a few people holding out on purchases till then to see if the games they want go on deeper discount. More purchases mean more cards on the market.

Yeah none of the mods work with the BFG version. So the BFG comes with the following bonuses:

- High resolutions out of the box (can get mods to improve graphics in vanilla Doom)
- The expansion pack + Lost Missions (can't get Lost Missions outside of BFG)
- Original Doom (ep 1-4) and Doom 2

I have D3 + the expansion on physical disc but ended up getting the BFG. It was $5 and was curious about Lost Missions. I do have to say its nice just launching the game and playing it right from the get go without having to fiddle with mods or having to go through the physical installs (which requires entering keys for both the main game and the expansion).

I've been getting between 17 and 18 cents for the ones I've been selling for the last few days. It adds up.

One trick is not to sell it based on the price it shows you in your inventory when you click "sell" on the card, as it just shows the last lowest sale value. Better to go to the Market itself, search for the card, and then see how many cards are up in the low-end prices. If there are only a few I'll usually price mine higher than the lowest two values. So you get a few cents more when you sell them.

I have yet to have a problem selling those cards within a few minutes even after putting them up on the higher prices. I look at my transition history and see quite a few are purchased in Euros or Rubles and even a few in the Brazilian dollar - I'm guessing the price of the cards show up even lower in those dollar amounts. So don't short change yourself when selling the cards with the lowest value listed.

Brutal Doom doesn't just add gore and high res textures, it can also add a plethora of fun and interesting gameplay additions.

For example, there's head shots, new weapons with reloading mechanics, proper mouse aiming, sneaking, stealth kills, melee kills, kicking, and a whole lot more.

Funny thing is, it actually all improves the game since it's handled in a way appropriate for Doom.

Yeah I just had an awesome moment where I freed one of the marines that was tied up and he became my co-op partner for awhile. Totally didn't expect that.

Really having a blast playing with this mod. The over-the-top gore and mass amounts of jibs just add so much to the game. Plus the 3rd person fatalities are blast to watch.

So with the recent Doom 20th anniversary I got interested in revisiting the game. Another thing that had me interested was the Brutal Doom mod that basically makes the gore and guns over the top (see link). With Brutal Doom, and the high-res textures mod installed the game is complete blast to play through again. I remembered E1L1 like the back of my hand but once I got to the second level things became less clear. Could recall some certain sections but not others. And forget remember all the secrets. Triggering some of those are so obscure.

Highly recommend going back to Doom with the new mods if you haven't played it in forever. These mods really bring the game up to date and throw in some nice surprises.

Here's a helpful guide that walks you through the process of installing Brutal Doom with the High Res textures and how to launch it. Got everything downloaded and up and running in about 15 minutes: http://www.mattloveswriting.com/how-to-install-brutal-doom/

The 80's are so terrible to revisit but that was just too good. I put $30 towards it for the Blu-ray.

Too bad. I was hoping for a big sale on AC3 since I am always one title behind the latest release.

it's on sale for $7.49 right now.

The entire AC series is getting the big discounts today/tomorrow. Ended up giving in and getting Revelations with everything for $7.49. Have the other two AC games but barely touched them yet. But AC 4 has gotten me in the mood to start playing them once I finish it.

I enjoyed it. And it was pretty fun. But my wife freak'n loved it. I didn't expect her reaction to it.

Just got this as well. Love the story elements but man those sneaking parts of the game, where you actually play, can get frustrating really quickly. One screw up and things can quickly go to pot and the next thing you know you're having to start over that section for the 5th time. But the story has me very interested so I'll be sticking with it.

Just not buying anything from these Steam sales anymore. So far the only thing I've picked up from it was Train Simulator 2014 and that on a bit of a lark.

On the bright side I have about $3 in credits from selling those snow globe cards.
