The sad thing is, this has a retail price of $40! I feel sorry for those who will buy it and feel duped. It should be no more than $10. I guess the branding blew their budget.

I'd pay $10 for this. It looks like a silly and fun co-op game. Assuming you can play co-op over the internet anyhow.

So I decided to take the plunge on this for the PC - and the fact that it only cost me $36 (yay for stacking discounts via Green Man Gaming) means I'm not out too much if it completely bombs.

But the last few trailers have shown that this just might be the classic Thief that we're all looking for again.

Why are games still 30 fps? Also, it seems that Xbox One is less powerful, no matter what the magic power of the cloud does? Oh well., its not like its even possible to get one for me yet, and no word on if ever.

Because the 'magic of the cloud' is a complete pile of bullcrap like I said it was going to be (maybe not here, but I've definitely said it). It is on orders of magnitude slower to do something over the internet than it is to update your screen 30 or 60 times a second.

At best...at BEST you'll see a roundtrip ping of 100ms...which means 10 times a second. And Microsoft seemed to imply that this 'magic cloud' could do things like display graphics? No server farm that they could set up could even begin to handle the requirements that 1/10th of the players could throw their way.

The 'magic cloud' is used for say, Forza. Holding your 'driving stats' and sending it to other players. Or for hosting multiplayer matches. That's it.

Also...I really, really like that walkthrough video posted earlier. I'm so totally on the fence on getting this. And I really should as there's plenty of sales out there.

So, question - do weakness bonuses stack?

In other words, if I attack a flying enemy with an Angel Bow (bonus damage to flying creatures) and also enchant the bow to the creature's elemental weakness, do I get a double weakness bonus?

Or does it just considered a 'weakness' and it doesn't matter how many of them you stack, you just get the one?

Digital is nice as you don't have to swap carts. Past that there's no advantage or difference either way (other than the digital copy is like 3.2GB in size or something).

Also you only get a few small items to start off your 'real' game if you do everything in the demo. IMHO, it's not worth it. Although you do get to see some jobs and classes and such ahead of time if you do.

Why the heck isn't NES Remix on the 3DS?

Why the heck can't we buy GBA games on the 3DS (through the eShop)?

Heck - why can't we buy DS games on the 3DS (through the eShop)?

Is Nintendo going to announce anything that would get me to find some reason to get a WiiU? And to increase sales overall (the PS4 is going to overtake the WiiU worldwide sales in a month or two tops at this rate)?

I can sorta get the GBA-3DS stuff not existing (as the GBA would have to be emulated). But the DS? That's fully right in the device.
170  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Bravely Default coming to North America on: February 15, 2014, 09:49:07 PM
Maybe that's what I'll do with my next move upload - a heal as there's so many high damage summons in the group. Anyone know offhand if there's a way to rez people through a special attack?

Also, is it wrong that I'm using Bravely Second just to rez people during boss fights (if they even fall)? And/or constantly having my healer use the rez staff and Cura shield constantly during battle (both bought through the rebuilding of the town)? Seems almost broken.

My god, I can't believe I avoided reading about this game until now.  I had no idea it had that timer-based village restoration aspect.  I'm such a sucker for those.

I'm sold on buying the full game, but I think I'll still finish the demo before doing so.  Can I start adding all y'all with friend codes while I'm on the demo version, or can I only do that from the full game?
I'm pretty sure that all transfers - I think 20 friends transfer from the demo.

IMHO, finishing the demo is absolutely not needed. All it gives you are a few starter items to (slightly) help you on your way.

Although yes, any friends you got for your town transfer on over. That said, you can't transfer townspeople from the retail game back down to the demo. But add away the friend codes. I could always use more slav...er, townspeople for my place. biggrin

Don't forget to update your 'special move' that you send over from time to time (under the Summon Friend power in combat). I have a friend of someone who has spent 20 hours in the game, but still has the default equipment and summon. Tongue

13-2 and Lightning Returns were released purely for milking purposes, no? To recoup some of the losses the publisher has seen lately.

The 'losses' that Squenix 'had' were because of entirely utterly totally made up sales expectations.

Like Hitman selling 5 million copies. Tomb Raider selling 6 million. Insane stupid things like that.

If you're not maxed, then you do get additional Norende villagers when you add friends.
Is there something special you have to do to get regular friends added to the village?  I have a bunch of friends in the game, and I can do everything else with them - Abilink, summon, etc. but the only ones who show up as villagers are the random "internet friends" you can get each day.
I haven't quite cracked the code with the whole friends thing yet.  Seems like sometimes people show up, and sometimes they don't.  I can't really figure it out.

I dunno. I think there's some kind of cap either on friends or internet people or whatever. I just have no idea how it all works.

Also, I've added in everyone who posted their codes here. Looks like I'm friends back with all of you at this point.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Review] Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII on: February 11, 2014, 10:26:28 PM
Did not like FF13 at all, never touched 13-2, and have no intention on getting 13-3.

It seems that Squenix has completely forgotten what made Final Fantasy games good.

Either that or the entire team went into making Bravely Default (which is just fantastic).

As far as my town goes, I didn't get a chance to get to that point in the game this morning. But I did add all the listed codes into my 3DS (so it'll fully 'friend' you all once you friend me). Once I get back home and a bit further into the game, I'll be able to update my town stuff and whatever.

And it sounds like that your town info goes into Squenix's central server once you upload it - so there's no need to be online at the time.
When I go to add you, it acts like you didn't already add me.

Because I think we've been just using this thread to pass around codes and not the central one. Tongue

Done. Also there seems to be a cap on how many friends you can gain in a single day (for your town and such), which I think is at 4. I dunno for sure though.

Another thing to consider is that AMD is going to own a lot of gaming tech standards in the coming years since their chips are the only chips in almost every console. Every developer making a game will have to learn nuances of AMD chips, both CPU and GPU.

Exactly. AMD processors and ATI graphic cards in both the PS4 and XB1. Kinda crazy how that turned out this generation.

2: People spend all that real money for this?  Wow 

No.

What it is is that you can purchase a month's subscription in token form, and then you can sell or trade this token to other players for goods or in game money. Since you can easily see the price of a month's sub on the game's auction house (which no doubt fluctuates all the time), this allows you to get a 'very rough estimate' of the 'real price' of ships and such destroyed.

A very, very rough estimate.

Thus, the 'estimated value' of ships destroyed in any massive battle.

Also, if you're in the UK you can't even play the game as their main ISP won't connect to Uplay's servers or something along those lines. Must suck to be them.

Game itself? Tons of fun. Really good game. Just Ushit needs to go the way of the dinosaurs.

That's kind of surprising.  Since they already have the last gen versions you'd think it would be relatively trivial to port to one more system with that version.
There's nothing trivial about porting between the three last-gen platforms, least of all the Wii U with its touch screen and infamously hard developer tools. The entire rendering engine would have to be specifically written for that platform, and the control system would need to be overhauled as well, not to mention the additional testing required. At some point the costs outweigh the potential income, particularly when the platform has so few potential customers, most of who already own another console anyway.

Exactly. And who buys multiplatform titles on the WiiU anyhow?

That said, Kotaku has updated their article saying that it was just a glitch in Gamestop's computers. It'll be back up tomorrow.

Based on BG1 for the iPad, you get the complete game that launched on the PC for that price. But if you want additional classes and brand new content, you'll have to pay for it.

On the PC version, you just pay extra straight off as all the DLC is included with the game.

At least I think that's how I remember it.

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).
