When I first started Console Gold I was updating each page in Dreamweaver by hand.  I would change each page and then re-upload them.  0_0

Ah, yes. I remember doing that forever ago as well. What a pain in the arse that was. biggrin

And yes, I wish the forms didn't split two (or three?) different ways. I frankly thought that was just...dumb. Thought so back then, still think so now.

Thankfully, you don't need to use StreetPass for Bravely Default.  You can add residents to your city over the internet or just keep the game running in sleep mode to wait out the building times.

Yup. The full game will have a daily 'phone home to the server' thing where you'll get more townspeople, as well as just adding friends directly over the internet (so like for people here who buy the game).

And keeping your console in StreetPass mode (lid down and game paused) is useful as every 8 hours that way you'll get a token for a free turn that you can spend whenever you want (max of 3). Or you can buy said turns via RMT (yes, seriously).

I'm far less enthused about it telling me to "connect with my friends" so I can progress more quickly through the building stages.  

FYI - building ONLY happens when you're playing the game or have it paused in Streetpass mode. It does NOT advance when the console is fully off or if you're playing something else.
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Most anticipated titles of Q1 2014 on: January 02, 2014, 03:10:05 AM
Buying for sure (barring very negative reviews):
Bravely Default (3DS, 2/7) - someone forgot to mention this in the top list. Tongue Also an RPG that plays like a Square game back in the SNES era (when they could do no wrong).
Watch Dogs (PS4 or PC, not sure yet) - wanted to jump into the next gen gaming world with this title alone.

Maybe:
Thief (PC) - still not sure how well this is going to turn out. It has been giving off a LOT of warning signs.
Infamous: Second Son (PS4) - still not sure about this. Never played the second title, either.
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What Collector's Edition purchase do you regret most? on: January 01, 2014, 03:18:14 AM
Starcraft 2 (Part 1 of 3). Didn't play the game itself for more than 30 minutes. Apparently I'm not a fan of RTS games anymore. Or just have had a falling out with Blizzard (didn't buy Diablo 3).

Quote from: TiLT on December 30, 2013, 08:22:10 AM

Neverwinter seems like it was designed with this eventuality in mind, so this should be pretty painless. I don't see how they plan to do this on last-gen consoles though. They aren't powerful enough to handle this kind of game. The Wii U maybe, but the others simply have too little RAM.

Agreed.

That said, while porting to the PS4/XB1 would be a LOT easier (as they're basically PCs), Champions Online was originally designed as a MMO for the PC/360 (and was supposed to use the Marvel license instead of the Hero Games/Champions one). There's even full support for the 360 controller built right in.

Also, the PR doesn't mention what titles they're planning on porting, so who knows what exactly we'll end up seeing.

Minecraft LEGO set.
And a Zelda based piece of art from one of the local art shows somewhat recently (I need to get a picture of it).

Already bought myself some discounted Steam titles along with one of the Etrian Odyssey titles on the 3DS.

really, once you get past the first boss, you are let off the leash, and while you can repeat the pattern and upgrade again, the game would benefit a lot from telling you this. 

Actually you're let off the leash before that. It just doesn't tell you. At all.

It's implied that you can't go anywhere without beating the first boss but...you can explore all of Alpha Sector to your heart's content before that point.

The demand for bandwidth is well and truly outpacing the ability for providers to install fiber in the ground to carry it all.  Caps are going to be with is for a while.

No. Providers were paying more attention to their bottom line and/or their stocks for YEARS now and as thus they haven't installed jack and shit for that same timespan.

So any need for a bandwith cap is completely and entirely their fault.

There's a tip for you!

Looks like a good place to call home. biggrin

Another tip: Your Matter Manipulator should only be used to get enough wood and cobblestone to make a pickaxe and a normal axe. Then you can tuck it away and never use it again. Also yes, the pickaxe uses the same left/right button feature that the Matter Manip did.

Also, holding shift changes your 'affect size' with your pickaxe/MM/placing blocks. From a 3x3 or 2x2 grid to a single square.

And the game is pretty well developed so far, IMHO. The main issue is the lack of a good tutorial and really explaining things.

It's cross-buy with the PS3 at the very least. From the devs:
"If you own any of these on PS3, we invite you to download them on PS4 at no charge."

Also, slightly related, Pinball Arcade is due out this week too according to the Playstation blog (among others).

You didn't need 200 pixels to make the table FYI. That just shows the 'sell' cost (of course you can't sell right now, so that's just there needlessly). When you highlight the item in your build menu, you'll see the cost of it there in goods and pixels (normally pretty cheap, and if needed).

Guys, since this game is offered through Steam how would I get it for my son?

In other words, I am playing it on my computer from my steam account.   My son got interested watching me, but I'm not sure how I would get it onto his computer so he could play at the same time.   Do I need a separate Steam account?   I'm ok with buying the game again, but I'm unsure how that works.
Eventually this
http://store.steampowered.com/sharing/

But you probably just need to buy it for him.
But how does that work?   Do I open a new steam account and DL steam to his computer?   Or do I log in with my steam account on his computer and use my account?    I'm confused by this.

IMHO, I'd make a second Steam account and then you can buy and then gift it through your primary account. As a bonus, you'll be able to play multiplayer with each other as its two different Steam accounts playing (although it doesn't use Steam connect).

And according to Steam I've only played for 22 or so hours since launch. Give or take a few hours. biggrin
But it's really not that much stuff - I've just stumbled into a few dungeons and such during my playing. And then threw it together into a mess of a ship.

The big differences of Starbound verses Terraria that I can think of off the top of my head: A near-infinite number of planets to go to, each with the possibility of different building materials, structures, NPCs (friendly or hostile), dungeons, and other things on them. And your ship (which you can store stuff on, like I did, or just use it to get around). And very easy mod support (there's a dozen or three small mods already available and the game is a week old).

Past that it's basically Terraria with a bit more of an alien feel. You still dive down to a planet's core, find the goodies within, and head back up again. Get better weapons and armor, fight bosses, continue onward until you get bored.

Overall, if you loved Terraria, you'll love Starbound. Just be warned that since this is very early beta, things can (and will) go wrong. Also there's a full on player wipe due in the next few days (just to show you how things can change).
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 08, 2013, 05:13:10 AM
And with a fully expected player wipe, I figure I might as well post my ship where I kept everything I needed in one organized area. Never really built too much on any planet, mainly because I knew I'd leave it behind sooner instead of later.

Still no keybinding = I can't play.
Why can't you play it?
I'm left handed. The arrow keys are what are comfortable to me.

I thought I read somewhere that it natively supports the 360 controller. Failing that, plug it in and use Joy2Key or something for basic movement. Not exactly optimal though.

Also, a lot of the game's configs are in xml format. You may be able to manually change configs that way, Zarkon.

And the only reason why I was able to take down the first boss was that I stumbled upon a gun shop selling level 10 ranged weapons. Blew away what I was capable of doing with my Iron Bow.

FYI - another big update is coming soon, which more than likely will cause a player wipe. But the devs will be changing the leveling system from 100 down to just 10 (without removing content). Basically it'll have Easy/Medium/Hard mobs giving the game the same feeling that it has now, without you being just slaughtered whenever fighting someone above your level.

Oh, and random - the game has mod support and modders are already going nuts with it. New ship designs, new items, ways to modify game settings, etc etc.

I've been watching videos of this one and it seems pretty similar, minus the planet hopping aspect. Almost bought it before Starbound went early access.

Darkout works (I bought it like 6 months or so ago via Desura) but there's something just 'off' about its core engine. Too much 'lag' between people swinging your way and hitting and such. I should fire it up again and see how it is nowadays.

Totally continuing to love Starbound though. I made a base of sorta on a level 7 Forest planet, beat the first 'boss', and now I can explore even more of the galaxy if I want to. Or wait for some more beta updates.

Decisions, decisions...

Two state of the art consoles sitting here and yet I'm going to be playing the hell out of this.

Yeah, that's how I am right now with Starbound as well. biggrin

Long story short - yes, it has a lot of resemblances with Terraria. Or if you never played that, Minecraft but on a 2D plane and with a LOT more combat.

Is it a bad thing? Oh hell no. I'm gonna be playing this for months to come.

One tip for everyone who is playing however. At the end of the (current) tutorial questline, it tells you to craft a distress beacon. Don't. Don't do it. Seriously don't make the thing. You're not ready for it.

Also you can leave your starter world. Your Super Spaceship of the Future!!! and stuff like that runs on coal. LOL

pretty much the same for me.  I will own it eventually, but maybe not right away.

Well I'm grabbing it tomorrow (or whenever exactly Steam makes the beta available). I'll have to dig up the thread and let you all know.

On the other, I had the same feeling as I did in other recent MMORPGs such as SWTOR. How does this game benefit at all from being an MMO? I'm about to do this super cool thing because I'm some sort of special "chosen one" - yet right next to me I clearly see two other people DOING THE EXACT SAME THING. Now granted I can choose to just ignore them, but then if I'm always ignoring other players, I have to go back to wondering what gaming purpose does it serve to have them around?

Yeah, that's my issue as well. And it's a large one in my mind.

I personally love the game as a whole and definitely will grab it when the time comes. But having the same massive (IMHO) problem that SWTOR did (it would be better as a single player game with at most only a few friends to bring into your game) seriously could hurt it.
