1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: May 29, 2015, 10:30:48 AM
It's a good month for strategy games with Skulls of The Shogun on PS+ and Massive Chalice on XBOX Games With Gold.

Day One - Game of Thrones Episode Four: Sons Of Winter for PS4
Someday - Magicka 2

I'm still undecided on Splatoon.  It looks like a lot of fun, but the general hype level seems very low, which does not bode well for an online-focused game.  I'm waiting on reviews to decide if I want to jump in or not.

I'll also probably get Beach Buggy Racing for XB1, assuming it's $5 like the XB1 version of Riptide GP 2.

Have they confirmed a US release date yet? I'm really excited for this...

Thankfully, Nintendo learned from their complete botching of the first game's release in the US, and they announced the localization when they originally announced the game.  Here's Nintendo of America's listing for the game, with a release date of "2015".
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Witch r you buying this week? (5/19) on: May 18, 2015, 12:18:55 PM
Day One - The Witcher 3 for PS4, Life is Strange Episode 3: Chaos Theory for PS4, Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros
Someday - Technobabylon

At this point, I can't even hazard a guess as to whether Square Enix or Nintendo will localize it.  It probably depends on the amount of new stuff they add and how much additional work would have to be done to bring it to the US.

Here's the first trailer.  It looks great, but unfortunately the show won't debut until midseason frown 
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: May 12, 2015, 10:50:53 AM
I'm torn regarding the game.  It looks like a lot of fun (I remember spending hours and hours playing an old shareware game where you ran around trying to paint as much of the level with your color as possible) but I'm worried this won't find a player base.  An online multiplayer focused Nintendo game is an uncertain prospect to begin with, and the fact that the game is only shipping with 5 maps and 1 online mode (with the rest to be rolled out over summer) is also cause for concern.
10  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DC's Legends of Tomorrow on: May 11, 2015, 01:13:09 PM
The characters from Legends of Tomorrow will appear in The Flash season finale, so it looks like that will be the launching point of the series.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/12) on: May 11, 2015, 11:43:44 AM
I think Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is supposed to be in the PC section.  It comes out for PC this week, but I haven't heard anything about a PS4 release.

Day One - nothing
Someday - ArcaniA: The Complete Tale,  Invisible, Inc., Knights of Pen and Paper 2, Not A Hero
12  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DC's Legends of Tomorrow on: May 08, 2015, 01:00:25 PM
Arrow and The Flash are getting a spinoff called DC's Legends of Tomorrow which will involve "heroes and villains joining forces to save the planet and time itself, led by time-traveler Rip Hunter".  The cast is a mix of characters from both shows - The Atom and the former Black Canary from Arrow and Firestorm (or at least the Dr. Stein half), Captain Cold, and Heat Wave from The Flash.
13  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: May 08, 2015, 12:41:18 PM
ABC has announced their fall plans - both Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter will be back, but the potential Bobbi and Mack spinoff is no longer happening.

BTW, did anyone else catch the Sonic reference a few weeks back?  icon_biggrin

Conan's Clueless Gamer take on the game.

Day One - Ether One (PS+)
Someday - Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker

It's not much of a sale, but Greenman Gaming has it in their VIP section for $47.

Broken Age Part Two on PC for me.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/21) on: April 21, 2015, 01:25:32 PM
Shovel Knight, although I haven't decided between the PS4 and XBO versions.
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: April 21, 2015, 09:53:02 AM
I'm loving this season, especially Skye's continuing evolution.  While we've seen plenty of origin stories, how often do we get to see a weekly TV series that examines the full origin of a (relatively unknown) superhero?  Watching Skye transform from introverted hacker into someone who can literally move mountains has been fascinating, and that's just one of the many aspects of the show.  They're really firing on all cylinders now, and I'm eager to see where they go with all this.

Also, the show is spinning off Bobbi and Lance into their own series, so it's possible they'll continue to explore superpowers on Agents of SHIELD, while the new show sticks closer to the original premise.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Star Ocean 5 Announced! on: April 14, 2015, 11:31:00 AM
According to this, Square Enix's teaser site is for a new game in the Star Ocean series, and it's not a F2P mobile thing that noboby wants  icon_eek  The site's reveal is slated for April 15, so hopefully we'll get a trailer then (assuming this isn't Square Enix's idea of a late April Fools joke slywink).
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/14) on: April 13, 2015, 01:04:36 PM
Thankfully, nothing for me this week.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: April 10, 2015, 02:08:33 PM

Quote from: Clanwolfer on April 10, 2015, 01:56:52 PM

Still stuck on Gascoigne, though I downed Cleric Beast first try and at this point I can clear pretty much the entirety of Central Yarnham without breaking a sweat or using any consumables (though I have to cheap-kill the werewolves, getting into a running battle with them seems to be a recipe for a quick death). I've leveled up a bunch of times but I can still barely get him to half health.

I think I need to get better at using oil+molotovs, I always hoard consumables and end up struggling through fights I really shouldn't. Otherwise I guess I'll just eventually level to the point where I can either kick his ass or soak the damage.

The charge attack of the two-handed axe works wonders.  It has a big range and will almost always hit him at least once. 

Also, for those wondering what stats mean, clicking the right stick on the character screen will bring up tooltips that explain what each stat means.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: LEGO Dimensions - LEGOs...Skylanders-style on: April 10, 2015, 10:57:07 AM
As much as I love the LEGO games, those prices are just too high.  I'll probably pick up the base and Back To The Future pack once the price comes down to something reasonable.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: April 07, 2015, 01:14:50 PM
The Earthbound codes have been restocked.  This happens every so often, and it usually takes Nintendo a day or two to make the item available again.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: April 06, 2015, 01:08:32 PM
You also get a small amount of experience for discovering new areas (maps) and disarming traps.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/7) on: April 06, 2015, 11:43:07 AM
Day One - Etrian Mystery Dungeon, Aaru's Awakening, Tower of Guns, and MonsterBag with PS+
27  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: NEW 3DS and XL on: April 03, 2015, 02:42:16 AM
The Binding of Isaac Rebirth has been announced for the 3DS and the announcement only mentions the new 3DS.  I really hope this is an oversight, and they're not going to start releasing games only on the new system when they would work on the old models.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: March 31, 2015, 08:24:33 PM
The Jaws of Hakkon DLC will be out for the other systems in May, so it looks like the XBO exclusivity window is two months.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/31) on: March 30, 2015, 12:42:44 PM
Day One - Story of Seasons
Someday - Toukiden : Kiwami for PS4

I'll also try out Neverwinter and Run, Sackboy, Run.
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: March 26, 2015, 01:55:18 PM
With the latest system update, you can now put the system in rest mode even if there's a game running.  Since I tend to play games right before going to sleep, this should be a nice option when I can't get to a save point and need to go to bed.
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/24) on: March 24, 2015, 10:52:17 AM
In a couple of stealth releases, Episode 3 of Game of Thrones is out this week, and Dragon Age : Inquisition gets a single player DLC called Jaws of Hakkon (timed exclusive for XBO and PC).
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/24) on: March 23, 2015, 12:43:17 PM
Day One - Pillars of Eternity  drool , Life Is Strange Episode 2
Someday - Bloodborne, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

These two songs will be free in Japan for a short time after they're released, and I'd assume the same will hold true for North America.
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/17) on: March 16, 2015, 01:30:44 PM
Day One - Final Fantasy Type-0 for PS4, Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2 for PS4
Someday - Mario Party 10, The Awakened Fate Ultimatum

Also, Oceanhorn, the Zelda Winder Waker-inspired iOS game is out on Steam this week, and I'll be getting that.

I downloaded the Neir songs and I am enjoying them, I wish the songs were about half that price as .99 is pretty steep and I didn't see a way to preview the song before you buy which is a bit strange so I may have missed that option.       

You can check Youtube for videos of most of the DLC songs being played.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/10) on: March 09, 2015, 01:49:40 PM
Two of the 3DS games won't be out this week - Story of Seasons is coming March 31 and Etrian Mystery Dungeon isn't due out until April 7.
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (3/10) on: March 09, 2015, 12:05:24 PM
Day One - Starships
Someday - Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Ori and the Blind Forest, Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters, Code Name: STEAM

Flame Over, the rogue-like firefighting game, looks great, but I'm going to wait for the PS4 version.
38  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [3DS] Monster Hunter 4 on: March 08, 2015, 11:38:45 PM
They're going to release free DLC on the first Thursday of every month, so I would think the first batch would be around at least until early April (and probably far beyond that, but you never know).

Quote from: Autistic Angel on March 07, 2015, 01:59:45 PM

I still have no idea how this game is supposed to interact with Beyond Earth, though.  That game is all about a single colony ship making landfall on one planet -- there's zero indication in anywhere in the fiction that there are also a fleet of advanced starships cruising around deep space and blasting aliens with plasma torpedoes.

There's a hands-on at Gamespot where Sid Meier discusses this.  Starships will bring your leader, affinity (Starships has the same three affinities as Beyond Earth), and enemies from BE into the game.

The first free DLC is out now, and it includes a bunch of new quests, armors, and weapons, including Link's sword, bow, and armor.
