121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Are any of you specifically playing horror games since its October? on: October 09, 2015, 07:14:50 PM
I have this ritual where I try to save up my horror games for Halloween. This year it is The Evil Within, and possibly Soma if there is time. For you WiiU owner, Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water arrives on their digital store. The Fatal Frame series has some excellent scares, and is a very underrated series.

Anyone else enjoy playing horror games during the month of October?
122  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Telltale Games pulled from iOS app store? on: October 09, 2015, 06:08:14 PM
I've noticed that I can no longer access many of Telltale's games on the iOS app store. For example, The walking Dead season 1, The walking Dead Season 2, Hector, Puzzle Agent, etc are all missing from the ipad and iphone lists. When I search via the publisher name, only Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands appear.

Are they pulling their library off the app store?
123  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: October 09, 2015, 06:01:17 PM
Every since DLC became the next big thing in gaming, I've stopped purchasing titles until the inevitable Game of the Year edition. Borderlands, Batman, Dragon Age, etc. I refuse to pay $80-$100 for a game, especially since DLC can't be traded in like the standard game.

Also, there are some fantastic soundbar/subwoofer combinations out there. I'm surprised how far the technology has gone.

Still playing through it. Get about an hour in a night or so.

I have to say the monster AI is kinda annoying. There's been a few areas where the monster pops up after a few seconds of entering a room. Then you gotta wait 15-20 seconds for it to go away so you can move on - but sometimes it comes right back and you gotta wait again. The first few times it was scary but now it's become a major annoyance of how they stick on you. You can't explore at all when they're on you like that.

But still enjoying the game overall despite the complaints I've made.

Is it as bad as Alien: isolation? Despite the developers stating that the AI wasn't scripted, somehow the Alien was always within the same exact part of the ship as me within 30 seconds to 1 minute. It made exploring an exercise in frustration.

I'm surprised there isn't more interest around the release of Soma. If you enjoy horror games, you should absolutely take a closer look at this title. It is getting fabulous reviews:

On the HTPC front,

4K OLEDs are falling into my price range, so I'm very tempted to grab one for my PC gaming. But I still think we are one graphics card refresh away from where we need to be. An overclocked Nvidia 980ti still struggles in many instances unless you are SLI. Im waiting for a single card solution.

I'm also concerned about how XB1 and PS4 games will look on a 4K TV. I cant imagine it will look as good as a native resolution TV. I still recall how horrible DVDs/games looked when on a 1080p plasma, even after being upscaled.

I certainly don't think alot of AA is necessary at 4K, so that can be burned down. But many of the other bells and whistles found in the ultra settings add dramatically to a game's immersion, and they can be very GPU intensive.

I've seen what this looks like on a high-end PC and was wondering... how is it on a PS4? Anyone playing there and can comment on that version?

I've seen it on the PS4 via my neighbor, but I own it on the PC, ultra settings. The PS4 looks excellent. To me the differences seem to be:

1) better framerate on PC
2) PS4 seems to be High settings, as opposed to Very High or Ultra

You cant go wrong with the PS4 version.

Was only able to finished the first four missions yesterday but also have a positive impression initially. We'll see as it goes on. But yeah it seems like most of the reviewers were being pretty harsh - maybe coming off the Warner Bro's negativity from the Arkham Knight PC version.

And although it isn't a new phenomenon there seemed to be quite a lot of posters on the Steam forums reveling in the negative reviews that were initially coming out.


I agree. steam users in multiple discussions seem to be falling into group think scenarios.

I'm only one hour in, but I thought that first hour was fantastic. And considering that area is basically a tutorial, I'm hoping for a great game overall. I was worried about the desert being bland, but they did a good job mixing it up.

The main questions are can the car combat stay entertaining for 20 hours, and will the side missions all be cookie cutter or will a portion of them be memorable.

My lazy, cliched unfulfilled wish- I wish the mechanic had been an attractive female, instead of chum bucket. When I'm stuck carrying someone around the wasteland in the back of my ride, I prefer they look like the ladies from Fury Road....smile

I'm in the same situation. My backlog in Steam is over 250 games. That doesn't include consoles, handhelds, or ios. Until Dawn, the Gears remake, and Satellite Reign are all on my radar. I picked up warhammer in early access.

Thanks for the review today.  Looks like this will be yet another game that goes on the "looks really cool but far too frustrating" pile for me.  frown

You and I share many of the same interests in games. And while I am enjoying Galak Z, I think I am also more willing to slog through frustration. The fighter reminds me of Battlestar Galactica, and it has the same type of front, back and side thrusters you see in that program. There is definitely a learning curve, and I would prefer my weapons be on the trigger buttons instead of the face buttons. More than once I've had an enemy dead in my sights, and then I tapped afterburner instead of fire weapon. In battles this frantic, that is a huge mistake.

I'm certain I'll acclimate, but the first time I die from it I'm going to be very pissed off.

Yeah, it's too situational to answer that. If the lanes next to me were clear I'd move; if not, I wouldn't. Definitely wouldn't stop or brake hard on a busy freeway, though.

I tend to swerve first, and THEN look in the lane next to me....

Does anyone else want to walk Dante Rising through the fact that the Republican and Democratic parties swapped social ideologies midway through the 20th century, beginning with the New Deal and culminating with the Civil Rights Act?  He seems reasonable and earnest enough to be worth the effort but I'm trying to finish off a couple daily quests before tonight.
-Autistic Angel

Ha! This is why I love being a gamer. It reminds me of the time I was discussing politics with a friend while fighting a very difficult boss in Dark Souls. In frustration I eventually turned to him and said, pointed to the TV and said, "Mike, can this discussion wait until tomorrow? I'm getting dismantled over here..."

I'm well aware of the changing landscapes of the of the parties, then and more recently. I've had that discussion all the way through how Regan could not lead the modern GOP and Kennedy could not lead the modern Democratic party, despite the parties hypocritically using both men as billboards to forward their political desires. But not the governing philosophies, of course.

My point regarding the Republican voting record was to drill further into the history of those men, as many of them were quite conservative in philosophy. It was not directed strictly to Republican/Democratic governance of the time. And please note I'm referring to the more progressive American conservatism, obviously not the same thing as European conservatism, which was more concerned with aristocracy, restoring pre-revolution tradition almost a century later, and a greater focus or hierarchical rule. (Or, of course, you may subscribe to the meanderings of Amrose Bierce, who defined conservatism as “a person who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others.” smile  )

And regarding Rush, I view him through the same prism as Mike Malloy, who has stated wonderful things such as:

“These teabag bastards, who by the way, I just wish they would all go away, or like in Passover, I just wish there was an angel of the Lord that would pass over, instead of killing the first born in all the households of Egypt, just wipe out all the teabaggers. Just, you know, the terrible swift sword, just (Malloy emulates sound of sword cutting repeatedly through the air) lop their heads off.”

-or-

"You're average Republican wants slaves back in the cotton fields, and women stricken of their right to vote." He then mildly commented that only one half of that statement was true, but he would let his audience decide which part was which.


I periodically listen to Rush's rhetoric simply to marvel at how one man has been given so much power by both his fans and his enemies. And he actually does makes sense at times...until he jumps the shark. But I suppose to be equitable I can say that of Mike Malloy and Michael Moore also.

As I mentioned earlier, I wish I had more time for these conversations. My point of all of these long-winded posts was just this- Conservatism is not one ideology, one group of talking heads, or one monolithic movement. I become frustrated when people point a finger at Rush and assume he IS the Conservative movement. (And I'm not suggesting Autistic Angel was defining it as such, but it seemed to be moving in that direction from an earlier post.)

It’s story driven with an emphasis on using your special abilities to unlock all areas of the world. 

There is combat but you don’t have a weapon.  Instead you control minions a bit like a FPS Necromancer; you “edit” enemies and turn them into allies.  All interactive objects in the game have a bunch of attributes like Movement, Attack, Special Ability and Ally/Enemy.  You capture an object with your edit ability, strip out their abilities and then you can assign them to minions you control. 

An example being, Rocks are fireproof; edit the Rock, steal that “Fireproof Ability” and place it in your dog creature and you get a fireproof attack dog.  Or if you prefer, edit your dog creature, take out its legs and give it to your new Attack Rock!


This pretty much sold me.  smile

That makes two of us. I'll place it in my wish list. Thanks for the info!
139  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Women in combat on: July 24, 2015, 12:29:56 AM
My meaning was clear. You've limited the scope of your rhetoric to the tyranny of the conservative movement, but I've not seen you show the same passion toward other movements that share some of the same apparent perspectives on a much grander, and far more violent scale. As one example, Islam in general, and radical Islam in particular, fall squarely into that category. Angst toward Rush Limbaugh but not Anjem Choudary or Abu Qatada? All three are conservatives by your definition.

I've not engaged in any far reaching discussions with you, so perhaps you limit your political leanings to the problems at home. I also don't often frequent the political portion of the forums, so perhaps I am unaware of your other discussions about such topics. But if one views history on a global scale, America and Western civilization are falling further into marginalization.

And let's not be too revisionist in our history of the country. Conservatism, which more closely aligns with Republicanism, was not on the wrong side of Emancipation.  Abraham Lincoln was a Republican president who issued the Emancipation Proclamation during the Civil War.  Furthermore, the 13th Amendment emancipating the slaves was passed with 100 percent of Republicans (88 of 88 in the House, 30 of 30 in the Senate) voting for it. Only 23 percent of Democrats (16 of 66 in the House, 3 of 8 in the Senate) voted for it. And while I will agree that Abraham Lincoln would be considered a moderate or liberal Republican by today's definition, a large number of the Republicans that voted YES we're quite conservative.

You may also wish to look more closely at the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the voting record, and some of the conservatives and conservative philosophies involved in that.

I truly wish I had more time for discussions such as these, but I simply lack the time. Any movement can be painted with a broad brush. Conservatism as a movement is far more multi-faceted than the one of which you speak. I hold this perspective to be equally truthful of the Democratic Party, Liberalism, Libertarians, etc.

I finished the game last night.  It goes to some very interesting and unexpected place, both with story and gameplay.  I don’t want to say too much because I think it would ruin the experience.  What I will say is the “antagonist” is basically a combination of David Cage and Peter Molyneux, which is fun.

The short of it is, it’s not a perfect game and is a little on the short side (~6hours) but it is definitely unique and will keep you interested.  I would recommend it at full price if you enjoy non-traditional game play experiences and still recommend it on sale even if you don’t.

For me the problem is that I'm usually playing games long after everyone else has moved on to the next hot title, so I can contribute very little. My backlog is monolithic.

But I would rather have a smaller community than something akin to Neogaf. Threads there will be 30 pages long filled one or two word with posts like: "damnnn!" or "I agree!"  Many times, I've been on the 1st page of topics, I'll refresh the page, and the topic I was hoping to read next has already moved to page 2 or 3 within a few minutes.

Emancipation, women's suffrage, desegregation, the Civil Rights Act, anti-semitism, gender discrimination, the Americans With Disabilities Act, sexual harassment law, hate crime legislation, the Fair Pay Act, gay rights -- every time America raises the idea of expanding the rights and protections for the voiceless members of society, the Conservative movement has been there to represent the losing side of history.  Many of the popular ones still do it: Ann Coulter will happily explain how women lack the intellectual capacity to responsibly vote, both Senators Paul are on record opposing the Civil Rights Act, and Rush Limbaugh's daily show has a daily three-hour show dedicated to telling "real Americans" how their moral Christian lifestyles are being endangered by the blacks, the feminists, and the gays.
-Autistic Angel

"Losing side of history" ?  Do you mean American history? You must absolutely detest Islam, along with a variety of other cultures and institutions around the globe. From a world view, enlightened Western civilization and Christian lifestyles are increasingly on the losing end of the equation.

You paint with a very broad brush and seem blind to your own myopia. I'm conservative, and you failed to describe me in your sweeping generalizations.

Regarding women in the military, I think all citizens should have the right to defend their country, in any capacity that benefits the military's strategic and tactical needs. However, there is a hint of Pandora's box in the equation, and Americans will need to increase their intestinal fortitude as we walk further down this road. The first time an American woman in combat is captured, brutally raped, and discarded on a YouTube video, the nation will view the situation as an entirely new type of horror that will not be easily overcome.

I tried playing watchdogs twice, and both times my interest waned right after meeting up with that female hacker and exploring some unmanned base that turned into your headquarters (I assume).

I'm still not sure why the game didn't hold my interest. It had solid mechanics, a good variation in gameplay, and the hacking was fairly well implemented. I had hoped for a greater emphasis on hacking. I also recall not liking the protagonist, and the evil entity you were fighting against wasn't very well defined.

I would try Watchdogs 2, but it wouldn't be high on my radar. Maybe I just didn't play far enough to let the game spread its wings.

I guess it would help understand my frustration when I say that the pre-release marketing for this game specifically said that it could be played either alone or with another player. They never gave any sort of indication that multiplayer would be forced upon you. To most people that might be a pleasant surprise. To me it was false advertising, leading me to purchase a product I might otherwise have reconsidered.

This sums up my anger with the game. I would have loved to play solo, or invite one specific friend to enjoy the landscape with me. Instead, when I attempted to play it was clear the person who dropped in to my game had already completed it in the past. He was a complete distraction throughout the short time I played.

I didn't really follow it but the last 3/4 of their campaign wasn't setting things on fire so I think it's safe to say that they might have been hoping for more.  At least they set their goal reasonably high. 

Is Bard's Tale a game that a large number of  gamers have been requesting to see resurrected? I think they set the goal with limited interest in mind. I've never seen in commonly discussed, unlike Shenmue, Wing Commander, Final Fantasy VII, Ultima, etc.

My only exposure to the series was on the Xbox. I found that title to be lackluster, and I recall trading it in after only a few hours of play time.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments
Cook, Serve, Delicious
Age of Wonders 3

Not saying I'm not going to buy anything else, but I'll be much more selective in choosing titles that I genuinely feel that I'm going to play in the near future.

OK on Wolfenstein, I didn't understand how gifting works with the new Refund Policy. If you go into Steam support and click the "it's not what I expected" option, you're prompted to click a checkbox that allows the original gift-buyer to request a refund. The original gift-buyer spent the money, so that's the person that can get a refund if you don't want/can't play (my motion sickness case) the game.

I'll mention this in the Steam refund policy thread. It wasn't what I'd call an intuitive understanding on my part.  icon_smile

I had no idea that refunding gifts was an option. I just just got a refund on The Forest, and the process was simple and fast. Steam gets better and better, but I wonder what the long term developer backlash will be.

In other news, I grabbed Dungeons II. Another member of Steam was kind enough to gift me an additional 10% off coupon, on top of the already discounted price. If any of you have that Dungeon Keeper itch, this is very similar and seems to be excellent from the 90 minutes I played. It also has an overworld aspect, where you send some of your minions to the surface to wreak mayhem in a simplified RTS game while you continue building the dungeon.

The summer sale begins! This sale will be something of an experiment, as the new refund policy may make the flash sales a non-issue. Previously, if you purchased a sale item and it went on an even deeper discount during the flash sale, you were screwed. Now can you ask for a refund and then purchase the game again? It would seem so.

Anyway, post your loot!

Out of the gate I snagged:

-Metro redux package at 80% off  (This is a fantastic FPS series if you don't already own it)
-Tales from the Borderlands at 50% off (This will be 75% off by winter, but I've got the itch for this type of game now)

I'm disappointed to see that Witcher III is only 10% off, and Borderlands the pre-sequel only dropped to 50% off. I was expecting at least 60%-75% off that title. There are 13 more games waiting in the wish list, hoping for some sweet, sweet love during the flash sales.

With the announcement of Fallout 4 I decided to FINALLY play Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. Unfortunately, Fallout 3 crashes randomly every 30-60 minutes, mostly when loading new rooms or areas. Although not game breaking, I can't seem to enjoy the game because I'm always anticipating a system lockup. This lingering sense of frustration keeps me from becoming immersed in the game. I have a very minimal set of mods installed, and those are only texture upgrades. The community patches are installed. So I'm assuming it doesn't play well with Windows 8.


It is more likely that Fallout 3 doesn't play well with your multicore processor.  Here's the fix that worked for me when I encountered identical symptoms:

Quote
Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
Find the line:

bUseThreadedAI=0

change it to:

bUseThreadedAI=1

Add another line after it and insert:

iNumHWThreads=2

This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze.

*If the game still crashes write this iNumHWThreads=1


I went on to play 107 hours without having another crash.  What a shame the screenshots of my completed bobblehead collection and cool power armor didn't survive the last forum migration.  

Anyway, I hope the fix works for you as well!

I'll check that out. Thank you.

Can I skip it and move on to New Vegas? Or will I lose out on alot of the mythology? Very frustrating as it is a spectacular game.

FF Type 0 is coming to PC. 

Will be interested to see if they are able to do anything to bump up the visuals.  This was originally a PSP game, after all.  And with all these FF games coming to PC, where's my remake of FF XII dammit?

Amen. With FFX HD selling better than expected, I hope it is in the pipeline. I own FFXII, but never played it yet.
