161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Riddick on: September 29, 2013, 05:16:14 AM
I just read this and thought it was interesting. kind of cool to see an actor be see passionate about a character:

When Universal wanted him for a cameo in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, he asked for the rights to the Riddick character instead of an acting fee. Diesel and Twohy tackled the script problems and went into production on the threequel. When a completion bond fell through, Diesel personally advanced funds until bank loans were secured. Eventually Universal came back in with an equity position but also insisted on a PG13 rating. Diesel fought the studio for an R rating – and the result is more bone-crushing and blood gushing violence. Oh joy. As Diesel told interviewers pre-release: “There’s something appropriate and liberating and honest and free about going into a picture like this, and being able to make it a rated-R picture and not have to comply with an understandable studio mandate of PG filmmaking for the blockbusters.” (Is it any wonder that half of America hates Hollywood?) Now Riddick’s international release is being handled by various independent distributors and opens this weekend in 22 overseas markets including the UK and some European countries, Hong Kong, and the Middle East

The original series had superb voice acting, and some of the best dialogue ever seen in a mass produced game IMHO:

"Given the choice - whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the Fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny - what was a king to do?"

I'm partial to Panasonic plasma, but this is a fantastic LCD TV:

free shipping. No tax. Ive purchased very expensive TVs from Amazon with absolute confidence. My friend payed the full retail price and liked the TV so much that he bought a second unit for his man-cave. My recommendation is to always stick with the tier 1 manufacturers: Panasonic, Samsung, Sony. Avoid Vizio, Westinghouse, Insignia, etc. The fit-and-finish, and overall build quality suffer somewhat in comparison to the previously mentioned brands. They are by no means bad TVs, but the devil is in the details.

in your price range I would personally get this, but as mentioned above, I'm very biased and vastly prefer to do my gaming on a plasma:

And btw, since you mentioned shopping at Sears, the LCD I listed above is MUCH better than this model you may be tempted by at Sears. this one is fine, but the E50 has better features and specs.

good luck hunting for your new baby!

My understanding is Vin Diesel conceptualized Riddick as a three part series with Chronicles as the original First story/film. However this was rejected by the Hollywood execs so Vin came up with Pitch Black which they liked and made a 2 picture deal for Pitch Black and Chronicles. The 2nd part of the original concept was to move on to an Underverse story line. I haven't seen the new picture yet but from the trailers I am rather disappointed as this seems like a rehash of Pitch Black, which was good movie but I wanted more of Vin's original vision. 

I wish they would have taken the Chronicles of Riddick movie and adapted that into a Star Wars-esque trilogy. I know that Chronicles underperformed, but I don't know by what margin. Vin Diesel attributed it, in part, to the story being slightly disjointed due to about 15 minutes of film that was left on the cutting room floor, even after the slightly more cohesive Director's Cut, which added in the dream sequence. The cut portion took place when he was first taken prisoner, and it detailed how he escaped from their ship and what he witnessed during that escape.

Anyway, I saw this movie and enjoyed it. if you are a fan of Riddick (as I am) there is absolutely no reason not to see it. It is definitely not a reinvention of the first movie, but its scope is similar, unlike the larger universe being constructed in Chronicles.

My company just purchased an outrageous number of iPads and iPhones for the entire network. It is my understanding that Windows tablets and phones were never even considered, and Android was considered to be unsecure and of questionable stability.

I don't see how MS can hope to recoup their investment. They would have been better off doubling down on the Xbox, and purchasing something like EA or Ubisoft, and securing rights to a large stable of exclusives. Either that, or acquire a series of top-tier developers, and consolidate them under Microsoft Studios.

Windows tablets and windows phones will not capture any significant market share, despite being quality products. the MS surface Pro and Windows phones are great devices, but the marketing has been horrible and consumer interest is almost non-existent. They simply aren't cool or fashionable, and to recoup the type of money they just spent, they will need significant consumer sales. So what now?  A billion in marketing to shift the image?

Considering the wonderfully detailed universe, I'm disappointed at how poorly WH40k has translated into gaming and cinema.
This.  I think Relic did a great job with the Dawn of War RTS series but aside from those two games everything else has been mediocre to pretty bad.  Even when Relic made Space Marine it didn’t live up to its potential.

 I think the problem is that there is too much backstory that you need to know to make sense of the 40k universe and if you don’t have that it is going to come across as confusing and unpleasant.

I think it's more a fear of that than actually that.  I think that when you get away from the "niche" category of PC RTS (what a world), the suits start worrying about dumbing it down for the masses.  Whereas, if you threw those details in, keeping the story coherent, the audience will catch up.

There is an inherent problem when it comes to bringing 40k to the masses though.  Aside from a couple exceptions there are no “good guys” in the 40k lore.  The human factions are just as bad, if not worse, than the monstrosities that they fight.

Relic bypassed this a bit with when Games workshop gave them complete creative control over the Blood Ravens.  Relic made them fairly heretical for a loyalist faction which actually made them more humane and appealing.  There were even lots of lore items in the games that alluded to the fact that they were actually descendent from a chaos faction. 

Aside from taking similar liberties most people are not going to want to play as fanatical characters who commit atrocities as part of their daily routine.

I think that is an excellent point, but I would use Gears of War as a counter agreement. In the first game Marcus is hardly a heroic character, but the graphics, setting, and gameplay trumped the lack of a strong main character.

Actually, Just give me Rainbow Six, but swap them out for Space Marines  and I'd be a happy camper. For an RPG, a character like Eisenhorn would make for interesting gameplay, although he could hardly be considered the typical model for a heroic lead.

Considering the wonderfully detailed universe, I'm disappointed at how poorly WH40k has translated into gaming and cinema. There are so many great stories to be told, and none of it translates over well. they need to hire an extremely competent developer to nurture Warhammer.

Any why no Warhammer RPG? Mass Effect sold well, and no one is willing to take a chance?

Unless it is a game I absolutely have an urge to play right now, I've been training myself to wait for the inevitable Game of the Years edition. And then I usually wait for that to go on sale for at least 10-25% off.

176  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Dragons crown is out! Vita/ps3 on: August 08, 2013, 03:41:18 AM
Decided to grab this. As Gratch mentioned, the artwork is absolutely stunning. I'm still surprised by backlash against the female character designs, yet these same people have absolutely no problem with the equally over-the-top male characters. People just need to stir up needless drama.

The controls are fluid and responsive, but the square button is used too much, for too many commands. And as already mentioned, your character can easily be lost amidst the chaos on the screen. I recommend choosing a brighter colored outfit at the design screen. Combat is highly enjoyable, however.

If the game had a true story, it could easily be one of my top titles of the year. I know this is a brawler game, but the lush environments and character designs just scream for a solid storyline to flesh them out. such a missed opportunity...
177  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Dragons crown is out! Vita/ps3 on: August 06, 2013, 09:40:17 PM
The game looks brilliant, but I've never been a fan of the brawler genre. For some reason I thought this was an action RPG, so I'm slightly disappointed to find out that isn't the case.  If it had a adequate storyline I would be more intrigued, but reviews seem to say it is an afterthought. It definitely looks slick, though.

I'll wait for a few Reviews from forum members before I decide.

What I find to be detestable is how the media is trying their hardest to stir the flames of racism over this story. Several stories I have read are calling Zimmerman "a white male" when in fact he is part hispanic and part white.

It's possible to be both.

As of 2010, 50.5 million or 16.3% of Americans were ethnically Hispanic or Latino. Of those, 26.7 million, or 53%, were White.

Oh, I understand that perfectly. But just like African American, the usual term is white hispanic. I'm willing to go on a limb and say the media felt the story is better if the "hispanic" portion was left off.

I'm especially unhappy that the media seems hellbent to find out who the jurors were, despite their requests to remain anonymous based upon the hostility and threats directed at them. By all means, please add the jurors so we can publicly shame and torment them for doing your civic duty.

My favorite is Carol Ostello from CNN, where she asked why the jury wasn't three African Americans females and three white females.
or when she said that the jury members should go public, as "protests are going on all across the country and the jury-members they have a chance to kind of settle things down. Only they can answer questions as to why they found George Zimmerman not guilty. For instance did they think race did not factor in?"

What does she expect? A jury member to say "Yeah, he was obviously innocent because he wasn't black!" NOTHING a jury member will say can appease the emotional masses using Martin as a tool to grind their own axe. As I mentioned before, if the law is in need of change, then peacefully make that change. Instead of focusing on the law that allowed Zimmerman to be free, the media is focused on Zimmerman.

What I find to be detestable is how the media is trying their hardest to stir the flames of racism over this story. Several stories I have read are calling Zimmerman "a white male" when in fact he is part hispanic and part white. I guess that makes Tiger Woods a "white male" also. Then I love how they've been stating the jury was six females, one black and five white. Why is that important? The press keeps adding small amounts of kindling to an explosive situation, and its regrettable because most people don't worry about looking at the facts. I've seen dozens of stories about the impact to Martin's immediate family and extended family. What about Zimmerman's family?  What about all the threats to his life? The sports stars saying "the hood will catch up to him...the jury should go commit suicide...", etc.

The bottom line is that the man was found innocent, and the jury had more information than we do. He should be allowed to live his life, without always having to look over his shoulder. Justice was served, and if people are unhappy with the outcome they should work peacefully to change the laws. One man is dead, and the other had his life forever changed for the worse. It is a tragedy from every angle. The only winners in this are the media, who love to stir the flames of racism to sell a few extra newspapers or increase their viewership.

I'm still surprised by the amount of angst all over the Internet in regards to the Xbox One no longer being a true gaming console.

I'll agree that their messaging was poor in terms of used games and certain Kinect functionality, but the reveal was never supposed to be about games. That will take place at E3, an actual gaming conference. And besides, does anyone think that almost every third party game will NOT be on both consoles? And MS has already spoken about the significant number of IPs they intend to roll out within the early stages of the console.

If even ONE of those new titles becomes "lightning in a bottle" similar to a Halo franchise, everything else will become meaningless very quickly for a significant number of gamers. These various forums that talk about the X1 being the next PSP Vita or WiiU are absolutely absurd.

Go to and add a 1200 point card to your cart, normal price 14.99. Put in the following code and redeem:


Here is the link to the card:

This will subtract $10 making your cost $4.99. I don't think it will make a difference if you use the credit card associated with your XBL account. You will get an email with the code; sometimes it takes 20-30 mins. The code is reusable so you can place multiple orders ... but be nice and leave some for other CAGs.

I've been reading quite a bit about the probable performance difference between the PS4 and the Xbox One. Blogs and forums are estimating the PS4 is anywhere from 40% to 66% more powerful. But I'm wondering if that extra power is even needed. It seems to me that the limiting factor for the next several years will be 1080P HDTV screens. A PC with mid-tier GPU can already run the most tasking games in 1080P with most bells and whistles. I'm currently running Sleeping Dogs with ultra textures, highest congestion levels, and every other bell and whistle, and my Alienware X51 easily maintains 60FPS on my HDTV.

 I suppose Sony may have a leg up with 4K content, but the adoption rate of those TVs is several years away.

The nearly flawless integration of the wireless Xbox 360 controller on the vast majority of PC games has significantly reduced my use of the Xbox 360, and it will probably kill most of my initial graphics 'wow' factor that most people will get from the initial jump to the new consoles.

on my Alienware X51 I'm already using Steam to play Dishonored, Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, Sleeping Dogs, Metro Last Light, Resident Evil, etc, all in true 1080P, with SSAA, advanced PhysX, tessellation, all with an Xbox 360 controller.

my point here is that unless MS gets off their asses and creates some truly unique exclusive IPs, I have no reason to buy an Xbox One, because the 3rd party experience is better on the PC. I'm not tied to the Xbox Live multiplayer ecosystem, so that part holds no value to me. the only piece of the puzzle that was previously missing from the PC experience was that I could not use a mouse and keyboard comfortably in my living room as a control scheme, and a few years ago gaming controller support sucked on the PC. In the past few years developers have made most games play flawlessly with a wireless 360 controller.

Meanwhile, Sony's strong internal development will force me to buy a PS4. I'll never see Uncharted, Killzone, Infamous, God of War, or Ratchet and Clank on a PC, so the PS4 already has a reserved space in my entertainment center.

For me it's all about the games. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and YouTube are all integrated into my TV already. I don't need to pay MS to be a middleman.

Ordinarily I purchase PC FPS titles once they fall to about $30. But after hearing about the conditions the developers worked in, I decided to splurge on the game now.

And unfortunately, it is the first game in the past few years that I'm unable to play. For some reason it appears that 4A screwed up their HDTV HDMI support, so when I tried to load the game it auto-defaults to a resolution 1440x480. When I go into the video options to change the resolution, none exist,and the game crashes to desktop if I click on the resolution slider.

They apparently put out a patch which fixed the problem, but it does not work.

<sigh> No good deed goes unpunished.

Buyer beware. I finished up the British campaign and started into the Ameican campaign and... it's the same thing. The planes are different, but the missions seem identical and follow the exact same progression. You even start out with the same mundane tutorial missions.

The game itself is still fun, but unless the French and German campaigns are somehow different, I don't recommend anyone pay for more than the $1 British campaign.

The campaigns are all the same (you can skip the tutorial missions by choosing the accelerated option). Since there is a choice of missions, though, there should be plenty of replayability. Some have remarked that the planes feel significantly different/require different tactics, but I haven't tried yet.

Wait, just to clarify, the missions for the different countries are identical? Only the types of planes change? Or do you mean the tutorials for all countries are identical? I'm curious because 2K was touting how there are over 100 missions.

It wasn't a playable demo. It was a carefully choreographed presentation because the whole thing would have broken apart if anyone got to actually play it. The game also had a review embargo/delivery to reviewers that prevented any reviews until after the game was released. You might think it's okay for companies to lie to potential customers in order to sell products they know are inferior to what's being promised. I don't, and I strongly doubt most other people do as well.

The embargo thing is a frequent component in this industry.  Many games arrive at your doorstep with only a few days (sometimes hours?!) before release. Games like Blood Dragon where the game is worthy, those games show up usually well in advance.  Games like Colonial Marines show up the day before.   When I started playing this and realized what was going on I took a day off of my regular job to power through it and the review so people would get adequate warning before they put their hard-earned cash on the table for it.  

The thing that bothers me is that Randy and co KNEW that what they were presenting was not possible with the engine, timeline, or current in-production game.  I feel sorry for the folks at Timegate who (other than their most recent failure of a shooter) have zero experience with shooters being handed a beloved franchise as sub-contractors but given absolutely no control over their own product.  Entire levels were uncoupled and shuffled like a deck of cards (hence why the weapon unlocks are so mangled and ass backwards), major story elements were changed, canon ignored, etc. etc. but since Sega was still happy enough to throw money down the Gearbox hole (which was, from all accounts, promptly used to make Borderlands and Borderlands 2) the end product was never going to be close to the thing that we were shown at E3.  I think him calling it "Actual gameplay" multiple times is what chafes my ass the most.  They showed us a top-tier 360 game and delivered a bottom-rung original Xbox game.  

I've played plenty of games that looked one way at E3 and came out completely changed at the end.  The difference here is that those changes were shouted from the rooftops - this was slipped in under cover of night and set on fire like a bag of flaming dog shit on my porch.  

I see your point. However, holding developers and publishers responsible for the disparity between a demo and finished product is a slippery slope. The consumers simply needed to wait ONE HOUR after release to learn the disappointing truth about the gameplay. Reviews were flying around minutes after the embargo lifted. And you need to admit, the rumor mill was already swirling with talk about the game being a train wreck. In my opinion this is a frivolous lawsuit. Sega suing Gearbox....that might have some merit, if they took funds for Aliens and siphoned those off to Borderlands.

The potential increased litigation risk and costs to honest developers if this case is won outweighs the potential benefits the consumer will obtain in any remedy. I don't want the gaming industry exposed to idiots like this:

It has worked great and it also is autoswitching, so as soon as it detects a new signal, it switches over to it.  I only ever have one device turned on at a time, but since I have my 360 and WiiU plugged into it, if I already had the WiiU on and I wanted to see something on the 360, I could just turn on the 360 and it would switch over.

Anyway, just wanted to share in case others want some solutions.

Thanks for the link. I'll grab one immediately. I also need to buy a new entertainment center because I've officially run out of room. Maybe something similar to what HankRaptor posted. icon_eek
