Quote from: Crawley on May 28, 2014, 02:31:58 AM

I have a hell of a time losing the cops at all. My car gets beat to all hell before I lose them. And I'm not sure what I'm doing exactly to lose them in the first place. Then as I go to the drop off location I get detected by the helicopter. And once that happens I can't lose that at all.

As mentioned, it's really about having all the starter hacking skills. Also being able to drive with the best of them helps a ton. Although if you're facing helicopters without the option to disable them...yeah, I got nothing (short of hiding in a garage somewhere).

When I need to dodge the cops (or whatever might be following me) I fire off as many of the hack things as I can assuming somebody is close to me. Additionally, if they're -very- close, the 'push button to hack X' should be flickering at you, which means that there's a very high chance that your trick will succeed spectacularly (for traffic lights I don't know if it 'cheats' for you, but the others mean that the vehicle in question is in the perfect spot) assuming you're not in the way of it.

If the fuzz is right on top of you and pushing your car, push right back. I seem to be able to 'out muscle' them (but maybe it's the cars I pick or my few upgrades, I dunno), and I can use that to push them right into other vehicles, or parts of walls, or something that won't just break apart when they hit it. Enemy vehicles as a whole (at least in my point in the game, no idea if this holds up for later) can take a LOT less damage than the player car can (no matter what you're driving), so if you push them into something once or twice, odds are they're garbage.

Finally - when you do break line of sight (you can now see a circle you need to escape from), floor it. At that point, all you need to do is stay out of any vehicle's visual range (which is smaller than you think) until you hit the edge of the circle and then you're home free. Also triggering extra vehicle stoppage things (traffic lights or blockers) is still useful too as it might keep them busy when they hit them whenever.

One last thing - bridges aren't too useful to trigger IMHO. Yes, no enemy vehicle will think of jumping them (but you can with just a bit of speed) and will always pull away, but they also tend to override your command if there's a vehicle already on them...or something. They just tend to work randomly for me.

FYI - I've turned off Invasion

With uPlay down, it's down too, so it doesn't matter what you have it set to. Tongue

Still really enjoying this. Also starting to get annoyed when the game just hitches and hitches BADLY (on the PC). It doesn't skip frames when it gets really, really bad - it just starts to take longer and longer to draw them. I don't know what the hell is going on. I do know my PC can definitely handle it though, so it's not that (and yes, I have the latest NVidia drivers released like today for this game).

On the flip side, the game is so much fun. I love being chased by somebody, as I can turn the entire city into a weapon (raise the Blockers just as I pass by them, or flip a traffic light as the insane citizens don't see if the cross-street is clear before hitting the gas, or other random fun things) to escape. Also I love sneaking around in places where I shouldn't be, headshotting people with my silenced pistol to get them out of my way.

All in all, the AI is fun to mess around with. biggrin

Not sure where I became the target of an AA™ post, but I'm going with the PS4 version myself due to some issues that were brought up with AMD cards.

Although I'm now seeing that the source may be mis-represented.  I'm looking for some comparison videos.  

Now here's the part that doesn't make ANY sense:

The current generation consoles ARE AMD PROCESSORS AND ATI GRAPHIC CARDS. Why the HELL are things like this happening? Is this NVidia just buying their way into a 'hopefully better PC market'?

Why am I asking this? Of course they are.

Anyhow: PC version is a lot of fun. Very solid and runs great with good hardware. The game is VERY VERY VERY designed for a controller however. Vehicle acceleration seems to be 'tap W for slow speed, tap W again to go to fast, tap W again to go full throttle'. There's like no inbetween at all.

And navigating the shop screens? There's no mouse arrow. There's no WASD support for these huge lists of things to buy (like if you're in a weapon or clothing shop). Just keep moving the mouse down and down and down and down and down and down.

The game just SCREAMS 'PC port'.
125  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 27, 2014, 07:10:43 AM
Well, PC version has some issues (needs newest drivers, has NO way short of editing an ini file to turn off mouse acceleration, frankly almost might play better with a controller than with mouse/keyboard), but I'm really enjoying it so far.

I imagine the PC download will be quite large so hopefully they allow preloads of this through Uplay, though i'm not sure if they have done that in the past. 

This is Ubisoft you're talking about here - I frankly don't expect it to happen as that would make sense for the company.

Interesting. Problem being is that you can't expect that extra processing power to be available to use in the first place. And people might be rather upset that the console without Kinect would get extra FPS/graphical details because they have the power to spare.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on May 14, 2014, 01:54:51 AM

The first E3, when the Kinect was introduced, it looked revolutionary.  The promise of this thing was massive and readily apparent.  A year later at E3, it seemed less so.  Then they released a product that they admit was gimped to make it affordable.  Many bought and raved about it, even here.  Then, over time, it became apparent that it was kinda worthless.

I remember that. I was with my brother who won a contest and the prize was for two to go to see the Xbox Press Conference that year. The Kinect looked amazing. Utterly amazing. And Peter Molyneu's (however you spell his name anyhow) demo with it was even more so.

Of course his demo never came to life, and Kinect was...well, it was never properly both last generation and now this one. And it could never do the things shown on video, either (at least not to that accuracy, anyhow). It was a good idea, but the technology (still) isn't there. And it's really hurting the XB1 right now, as it eats a fair chunk of processing power to do pretty much nothing.

Wonder if the Kinectless-XB1s will have that processing power restored. I doubt it, now that I think about it.

Annnnd the horrible, terrible, useless shit that is Kinect is finally, mercifully, killed by its creator.
I'd be happy with having paid extra for the Kinect if they'd just release some damn games. Hell, I'll take even an updated Kinectimals game to show the kids.
Agreed. But now it's going to be dead dead DEAD.  First adopters are getting screwed by this.
business as usual.  either it's by a significant price cut (3DS), dearth of 3rd party games (WiiU), bad hardware builds (360), downgraded controller (PS3), or unfulfilled promises (Kinect 1/PS Move).  

Pretty much. Also, don't forget not buying games at launch because they'll no doubt have a 'this version has all the DLC and everything else' 6 months later.

Still, I have to laugh how Microsoft insisted that it couldn't be removed. That said, the UI absolutely blows without being able to tell the XB1 'Xbox, do this'. One step becomes 5, easily.

Kinect is dead (again) this generation.

Yeah, it looks like there will be no Xb1 version, unfortunately. The official reason is they got their dev kits late and didn't want to hold up development of the game to get a xb1 version out. They also have been rather disparaging in their comments about the I don't see it in the cards for the system.

Well, the problem is that Microsoft has a 'if you don't release it the same day, if not earlier, as you do any other console version, then you can fuck off and we don't want it on the XB1' policy.


Also, quite enjoying the game myself (as I said in this week's release thread). Ron's GT review I pretty much agree with, although I'd grade it slightly higher (7 to 7.5 out of 10) myself. At least from my limited playtime.
136  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: May 10, 2014, 02:09:22 AM
I never thought I'd say this, but yeah, I hit the unsub button the other day too (before my first 'free' month was up).

Partly because changing my subscription type was fucking royal pain in the ass (seriously, it DOES NOT WORK on your average laptop monitor resolution, and needs something bigger), and partly because I just don't play it any more, but I hit unsub and for now, I'm not looking back.

ESO has a lot of problems. So many areas of it just scream, "This is our first MMO, and we didn't learn a single fucking thing whatsoever in all the other MMOs that have come out in the last decade." It's really really sad.

This would have been a MUCH better game had it just been co-op with up to 4 other of your friends. And nobody else.
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/4) on: May 10, 2014, 01:41:59 AM
I've been going sword and magic myself. Basically Daggers is the high risk/high reward (with lots of DPS on one target but not too good of a way to defend yourself), Sword is more technical and slower, with the ability to hit multiple targets and powerful counters, and Magic is a force multiplier (especially enchanting your weapons to do fire damage for 15 seconds or so).

I haven't quite finished the Swamp yet (but I think I'm getting close), and so far I'd give it a solid 7.5/10. The story is pretty generic but it works, the voice acting ranges from okay to bad (but not, "Jill, the Master of Lockpicking" bad), nice graphics (on the PC with everything maxed), and very solid (and VERY difficult on Normal) combat (which I'm really enjoying).

Also crafting works (but it's mainly a way to tailor your weapons and armor to your personal liking). Do you want more DPS? Crit Chance? Chance to set fire to a mob? Better defenses? Resistance to Poison? It's all there, and for the most part you have to pick and choose your upgrades.

Basically it's sorta Dark Souls except it's not just you verses the world. And you can't come back from the dead short of reloading your game.

IMHO, if you have an itch for a decent action-RPG with solid combat, buy this game. It's also priced right ($40 for the PC version) for what it is.

EDIT: A 2/10 review? A 4.5/10 review? Oh hell no. BBF is NOT that bad of a game. GameInformer's review header of, "A Solid RPG Snack" is a good way of putting this game.

I have a bunch of large apps that don't all fit on my iPad.  I keep them on the computer and iTunes keeps them updated.  Only now if I connect the iPad to the computer and try to install one, iTunes tries to install every app that's not on the iPad.  Needless to say, they don't all fit.  What am I doing wrong?  At first, it seems to allocate the correct amount of space on the iPad for the app.  Then, within five seconds, it decides to put everything on the iPad.  Help.

While this won't be a helpful response, I had iTunes do pretty much the same thing - it tried to dump everything I had on my iPad onto my iPhone when I plugged them both in to back them up.

...despite the iPhone having half the space my iPad has.

It's very...stupid at times.

So...the upgrade to the full unlock costs $50. But from the wording on the PS Blog post its seems this is treated not like a sale item but the free games you get with the sub. If the PS+ sub ever lapse you lose access tot he game. I really hope this is a miscommunication on their part...

This is exactly what everyone thinks at this point - the 'discount' is only yours while you keep your PS+ sub. So you don't really 'own' it unless you spend the full $60.

In short, don't gimp yourself by trying to save $10.

EDIT: You also get some kind of demo by just having PS+, but it's absolutely not the full game at all.

Interesting, I see Steam still says the game will unlock in 1 day and 17 hours.  Did you end up buying it on the PS4?

Too bad they can't bring those out to the 3DS. Despite, you know, the system being perfectly capable of playing NES, GB, GBC, and GBA titles. For that matter, why are the GBA releases only for the WiiU as well (from prior weeks)? I want to give you money, but I have no reason at all to buy your console otherwise!

Yup. The werewolf transform is (yet another) buggy thing inside of ESO.

Also, reading their forms, they're banning people left right and center for the dupe bug (that apparently was reported BACK IN FUCKING BETA). Also they're banning anyone for any reason apparently, too. Seems like their auto-banner is hitting people randomly.

Of course I've 'duped' items - I've been hit with the bank bug 3 times so I have 4 copies of all the preorder items and Imperial Edition stuff. Is that enough to get me banned? Hell if I know.

I just know I won't be playing while I wait to see if they can fix this latest fuckup of theirs.

Has anyone tried this?  I expected a Terraria ripoff but the video shows it to be more Dwarf Fortress like. 

It's...I'd say a much much lighter/easier Dwarf Fortress game. Basically you play as a 'guide' to the Dwarves (although you can completely manually control one at a time if you'd like) and get them to do things like build, craft, fight, gather, etc etc.

I got it on sale earlier in its Early Access stage and definitely enjoyed the time I put into it.

Customer service so far has been next to worthless, too. Don't even get me started.

Do I still enjoy ESO? Yes. But it has its share of serious problems (like wiping inventory in my bank example above - that's something you absolutely must period make sure never ever happens).

There's an ESPN.GO app for the Roku that functions just like HBO.GO.  But that means you'll have to keep at least the minimum service from your cable company and add ESPN, most likely. 
That's the problem. Just let me pay $5 a month to use ESPN go and I'm all set. $7.99 for Netflix, $7 for Amazon Prime, Whatever HULU Plus costs, plus $5 for Espn and I would see huge savings.

Because that would cause people to cut their absurdly overpriced cable TV subscriptions even faster in the end. Also that makes a lot of sense to do (offer money just for ESPN) and as such it'll never happen.

Oh and the vanilla UI and features on ESO is just serviceable, so getting addons for the game is essential for those of us that want more input/feedback from our MMO UI

I'm fine with the default UI (mostly), but my essential mod right now is some sort of spam filter or gold farmer blocker. Kinda shocking just how many of them there are out there.

And so far, I'm enjoying ESO quite a bit. Is it anything truly amazing? No. But it really feels like an Elder Scrolls game.

Except for the absolutely immersion breaking public instances where it allows 15 people into the same zone where the NPC outside told you that you're their only hope, or that is a place that nobody has ever explored, or anything of the sort. It's just absolutely utterly dumb.

I contacted ESO support.   They said just cancel my Gamestop order and order the digital copy through them.    The boxed copies only get a 3 day head start.   Digital gets 5.   It's to encourage digital sales for some reason.

Not quite from my understanding.

If you preorder any edition directly from Bethesda themselves, you'll get 5 day early access.

If you preorder the Imperial edition (the $80 one or whatever) from anybody, you'll get 5 day early access.

If you preorder the Normal edition from anybody other than Bethesda, you'll get 3 day early access.

Also, if you preorder any edition from anybody, you'll get the ability to play any Race on all 3 sides right from the start.

EDIT: Example: My digital preorder via Green Man Gaming (20% off!) is for the Normal edition, and I only get a 3 day head start.

I'll never go back to a phone under contract again while things like these are offered. Yeah, I have to buy the phone for full price whenever I want to replace it, but I save SO much money compared to these contracts (which yes, have slightly gotten better over the years).

-  The stupid gorram birds and dogs, which you had no way to silence.  At least let me shoot the damn things to shut them up.  slywink

Choke Arrows. Completely knocks them out for good (unlike against people, where it works for like 5 seconds).

-  Going up against humans was lots of fun.  Anything else, not so much.  I inwardly groaned every time I had to go up against those stupid zombie-things.

Agreed. Those were never fun sections at all IMHO.

Keyboard (and no doubt joystick) are the only control options.

Basically the game controls exactly like the arcade classic Asteroids, except there's gravity. And you can't teleport. And your ship regenerates health when not shooting.

Turn left, turn right, thrust, shoot. 3 arrow keys and X.

And as mentioned, the game is a ton of fun and very addicting. I love it. biggrin

This blows. Isn't the reason for release dates is so everyone gets it all at once ? I have numerous friends on my list playing it now . Even some of you jerks. icon_wink
it's to protect the retailers not the consumer.  It's to ensure one doesn't have an unfair advantage over another.  You do usually see them allow them to start selling a game if one of them breaks the date,  but I guess the eBay thing isn't big enough.

Screw that crap. Just sell it when it shows up. Still, I'd love to know how/why eBay got it before anyone else did.

Also, WTF is with the Friday release of this game? NOBODY releases on anything other than a Tuesday in the US (unless you're Nintendo). Who thought this was a good idea?

And don't give me that 'off on a weekend to play' stuff either as my days off are during the week. Tongue

I knew I forgot something last night. LOL

And Infamous is coming out this week. I really should snag it so my PS4 has something exclusive to play.

EDIT: WTF is with the Friday releases this week for multiple titles? Tuesday is the launch day for everything in the US. EVERYTHING. Unless you're Nintendo anyhow.
