So, good thing you didn't preorder via Target:

http://kotaku.com/looks-like-target-is-canceling-ps4-preorder-bundles-for-1448163984

Quote
Watch Dogs and Driveclub, two high-profile games planned for release alongside the PS4 and Xbox One, have both seen fairly last-minute delays into next year. However, both of those games had been included in next-gen console preorder bundles. Two readers inform us that today, Target canceled not just their game preorder, but their console preorder as well.

Quote
Note the bit at the end, where they inform him that preorders will re-open next week on October 25, on a "first come, first served basis." Salt in the wound, that is.

Wow, what jerks they are over this. Especially that end bit.

From what I hear the only level worth playing is the car level, though.  One level is not enough to sustain my interest in an otherwise mediocre shooter.

How did the Kotaku post put it? "They should've named the game CarFun or something."

Sure looks entertaining, that's for sure. biggrin

I think that's the least of their concerns. If they can get to a point where the game is worth playing, they won't have a hard time finding thousands of paying customers.

That's the trick though - getting to that point in the first place.

There's a reason why MMOs are designed with giant teams and huge amounts of funding - because it requires it. Up front. Not 'when the game launches'.

$320,000 to create and run an MMORPG? Yeah, good luck with that. Backing this thing is about as useless as throwing money out the window. They don't even reserve money for running the servers, instead assuming that they can get that by selling a bunch of subscriptions before launch.
This^... Doesn't make sense to me... The only thing I can think of is that they feel they need that much for the actual programming part and that's all they are worried about now... which also doesn't make sense...

Yeah. The entire cost is software ($180k) and paying for fees and taxes and lawyer and everything else (everything else).

Are they working for free for the next 2 years or so?

Something is just wrong with this.

Who the f*ck picks the English titles for their games? If it's a straight translation, then they need to start putting some interpretation into it, because a lot of their titles come off as word salad to me.

They also need to fire every single 'voice actor' they used in their latest English trailer because holy hell it was terrible.
136  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Dragon's Prophet - New f2P Available on Steam on: September 25, 2013, 03:13:23 AM
It's your usual Asian grind MMO poorly translated into Engrish and then published by SoE for reasons I personally can't figure out.

Its only benefits are the taming of 'dragons' (only the trailer shows what most people in the US consider 'dragons' - what you find all over are anything but) and the fact that it has 4 sliders that affect boob size and 2 that affect ass size.

You can make some very...monsterously bad freaks of nature with this thing. Just...trust me on this.

Outfits aren't attached properly to the body at all (they clip into your body right during character creation) and the entire game just screams 'generic boring grindfest'.

Stay away. Unless you want to train your own 'dragon' from right out of the (poor) tutorial and fly around for a while.

Too bad Sony couldn't have come out with a 'Premium' PS4 like they did with the PS3 and offer BC as an option for those willing to pay for it.

Because the 'premium' model would cost the price of a PS4 as well as the price of the components of the PS3 (at the very least). So, what, another $150-200 or so easily? No doubt a LOT more just to get the two systems to work properly together?

The PS3 had PS2 BC because it included all the PS2 chips in it (which cost about $30). It's 'brute force' emulating the PS1 nowadays (and it didn't have to do so if you owned one of the PS2 BC models) because it's powerful enough to do so.

The PS2 requires a heck of a computer to properly brute force emulate on the PC. The PS3? Forget it. PCs aren't fast enough yet.

TLDR: Not going to happen.

Really like it so far. Some of it is quite ugly, like the Safari icon, but lot's of nice little touches. Finally an Android like control panel!

Battery is getting slaughtered on my iPhone 5 of course.
Turning off Background App Refresh and enabling "Reduce Motion" to kill the annoying and gimmicky parallax effect is believed to improve battery life. If you could, try that and report back if it makes any difference. I'm holding off on the update until there is more info on the battery problem. Plus I'm sure the update servers are getting slammed now anyways.

I've done both. We'll see how well the battery holds up. That said, my phone sits with wifi always on because of limited minutes and how I get free wifi calling. So I dunno how much that's going to affect things.

Also it wasn't much of a hassle downloading iOS 7 this morning when it became available. Can't imagine doing it now.

Overall however, initial reviews say that battery life drops by 5-10% on default settings with iOS 7, which frankly is nuts. Wonder what the heck happened?

Now bring on the jailbreak! I want customized icons and such! biggrin

Do you get 4G through T-Mobile? 

Yes I do (live in the Phoenix metro area). And I see a noticeable speed increase when I'm in such a zone, so I know it's connecting and such.

Also, no, T-Mobile doesn't have a chance in competing with Verizon's network. For that extra $10 a month, odds are it'll be worthwhile for you.

It's SO nice going contract free. And SO unbelievably cheaper in the long run, too.
Which provider do you use?

I've been using StraightTalk for about a year with a CraigsList-purchased iPhone4.   I'm happy with the service but torn between paying the off-contract price for a new phone or sharing my mother's Verizon plan and getting a subsidized 5S.

T-Mobile and their special 'web only' deal. Yes I had to buy the phone up front. Yes I can't get any insurance through the plan. But for $30 a month (plus about $3 in taxes) I get 100 minutes (but unlimited wi-fi calling), 'unlimited' (5GB before they slow you down) internet, and unlimited texting. Although the plan is only really useful if you're in a major city that has good coverage on just their towers (or so they say).

So while everyone is paying $80 (what my Sprint bill was after an employee discount) or a lot more (I know my brother pays over $100 with his discount), I'm getting back the cost of the phone in about a year. And then saving oodles of money if I say, keep it for two (most contract durations).

Also, $285 in Apple credit for the iPhone 5 (which model though)? Wow.

Neat phone, but I won't be running out to buy one a year short of my contract.

It's SO nice going contract free. And SO unbelievably cheaper in the long run, too.

That said, I'm going to keep my iPhone 5. The 5s is, just like the 4s, an incremental upgrade. A nice little upgrade, yes, but I'll still wait. We'll see what the iPhone 6 brings to the table. I hope they keep the 'small phone' concept - I for one love how small and tiny it is, despite having to buy a case for it to make it slightly larger and heavier. Go figure.

151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: September 04, 2013, 08:56:12 PM
The reason why I see everyone switching to development on the new consoles is simple:

The three main platforms (XBO, PS4, PC) are all one platform - a PC. The XBO is a PC (AMD processor and an ATI graphic card, 8GB of RAM and 500GB HD). The PS4 is a PC (same). The PC, well, is a PC.

If you were a 3rd Party Developer, wouldn't you want to be developing solely on a single platform that allows you to release titles on 3 different systems?

This is also why the WiiU is (even more) screwed - because it's not a PC. And it's not like the 3rd Parties are seriously supporting it to begin with.

Quote from: Crawley on September 04, 2013, 07:39:50 PM

One of the big complaints, outside of the game still using UPLAY which is valid but get over it people, is that this is grid based movement with turn-based actions rather than free-flow movement with real-time action. MMX is heavily based on the Might & Magic 1-5 games - not 6+. So the retro gameplay has turned those off expecting something else.

I've been noticing that and frankly am shocked - they said from the beginning that this was going to be by design like the old M&M games. Tile and turn based. And because of it, I was so totally excited. This is what I grew up with. Why I loved Legend of Grimrock so much too (as it was the old Eye of Beholder and Dungeon Master feel).

I swear all these old school games are so the way to go with things. biggrin

I also do FAR more texting than I do talking. By far. Hell - my current plan on T-Mobile is 100 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited (5GB before slowdown) data, for $30 a month.
