162  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Wrong Mans on Hulu on: November 12, 2013, 12:31:54 PM
Hulu has a new original series called The Wrong Mans, a half-hour comedy thriller that seems like a mix of The Office and 24.  I've only watched the first two episodes, but it's been very entertaining so far.  TVGuide has a writeup about the show.  The first two episodes are available on Hulu for free, with the rest of the six episodes going up weekly, while Hulu Plus has all the episodes available now.

PC: Contrast

It comes out on Friday for some reason. 

I would guess the Friday release is due to the fact that it launches on PS4 on Friday as well.

Day One - nothing

Someday - BI : Burial At Sea, Ratchet & Clank : ITN, XCOM : Enemy Within, PS4, Knack, Resogun, Contrast

The game is on sale at Gamersgate (Steam key) for $3.75.

Release dates have been announced -
We are delighted to announce that the PC version of Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse will be released on December 4th. As backers, you will be able to download the game on the day of release! The exact details about “how” will follow closer to release.

To top that news, the game will be released as two action-packed adventures in close succession. Thanks to your support, we have been able to be hugely ambitious – each episode is a full sized game in its own right. And because we couldn’t have done it without you, everyone from reward level $15 and up will receive both episodes!

The second episode is due for release in January 2014.

I guess that means I have a month to play and finish Broken Sword 4.

I'll be getting The Guided Fate Paradox for PS3.  Unless Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD somehow makes it out this year, this will probably be my last day-one purchase for 2013.
171  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: GMG - Mafia/Civ V DLC sale. BNW - $12 on: November 03, 2013, 10:16:46 AM
They also have Scribblenauts Unmasked : A DC Comics Adventure for $12 after discount.  I think this officially earns the Scribblenauts franchise the award for fastest-dropping price.  Last year, Scribblenauts Unlimited was $7.50 about a month after release.

Nice I've been holding off on Dragon's Dogma, I just hope they give that one to us this tuesday so I have time to play it before the PS4 launches.

They release the "Game of The Month" the first week, so DD will be available this Tuesday.
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: November 01, 2013, 11:13:33 AM
This month also marks the anniversary of Vita games being added to PS+, so presumably the year-long games (Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and Wipeout) will be replaced by three new games.  I don't think Sony has confirmed this, but that's what they did with the year-long PS3 games.  Also, Sony confirmed that you'll be able to add the PS4 games to your account even if you don't have a PS4.  I don't plan on getting a PS4 until next year, so that should make for a nice big library once I do get one.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow—Mirror of Fate HD on PS3 for me.  I almost bought the 3DS game a few times, but I'm glad I waited.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Riccitiello: Console games need more variable pricing on: October 27, 2013, 11:44:04 PM

Quote from: CeeKay on October 27, 2013, 09:40:24 PM

"Another thing that console and PC guys could and should learn is variable pricing," Riccitiello said at the recent Gaming Insiders Summit, as reported by the [a]list daily. "$60 is a giant FU to a very large number of people. There's not been a console game with even half as many installs as Clash of Clans. Puzzle & Dragons has got more installs than any console game in history. Getting a larger audience through variable pricing is a really useful thing."

I agree that console games could use more variable pricing, as only rarely are games priced anything other than $15 for download titles and $60 for disc-based games.  When a game is released for $40 or $50, people often assume that's it's lower quality or that there's something wrong with it.  However, the free-to-play model is the last thing console gaming needs.  It's already infected the mobile gaming space, and I'll gladly keep paying $60 a game to keep the plague from spreading.

The networks have gotten reboot happy again, even though they rarely seem to work out.  Reboots of Murder, She Wrote, Remington Steele, Boy Meets World, and Falcon Crest are also in the works.  Actually, only Murder, She Wrote is a reboot, as the other three will be "sequels" featuring the same characters and settings.

I decided to cancel my Amazon preorder.  There are just too many other games to play.  If impressions turn more favorable as people play more of the game, I'll probably pick it up on sale on the eShop sometime in the future.

I'm having trouble figuring out what kind of game this is?     Can someone enlighten me?

Something like Harvest Moon but the focus is slightly different. You're running a store instead of a farm.

That's it in a nutshell.  You run a shop and explore a town.  As you expand the shop, more people move into the village, leading to more items being available to sell, etc.  Initial impressions aren't promising, as people are saying there's not much to do and it gets repetitive quickly.  It seems like it might be a game that grows over time, though, as you get more stuff to do.  Even though I preordered at Amazon a month ago, my copy still hasn't shipped.  The game is backordered, and it looks like they might not even have enough copies for preorders.

183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/21) on: October 21, 2013, 12:50:13 PM
Getting Day One -
LEGO Marvel Superheroes for XBox and Hometown Story for 3DS

Getting eventually -
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies
Batman : Arkham Origins and BAO : Blackgate
probably The Dark Eye: Demonicon

BTW, Hometown Story is listed in the 360 section, but it's a 3DS game.

From what I've seen, there's no reason to get Fallen Enchantress, as Legendary Heroes contains everything in FE and more.  If you already own FE, you can get Legendary Heroes for $5 at Stardock's website.  Check the Steam forum for Fallen Enchantress for details.

Nintendo has acknowledged the bug and they're working on a patch.  For now, as long as you don't save while you're in Lumiose City, you should be fine.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on October 17, 2013, 12:09:15 PM

Honestly, I think you guys are looking for trouble here.  Bad writing?  Just 'cause they didn't give you the things you wanted?  They are doing a decent job of establishing the universe without hitting you over the head with it.  They also may be limited by Marvel in how much they can establish (although if the show continues to do well, that will likely change).

I thought the whole episode was badly written, not just the characters being surprised by things they shouldn't find surprising.  The beginning sequence with the briefcases and diamonds made no sense, the characters were too sympathetic and trusting of someone who was willing to kill innocent people just to protect her own life, and the part where they "profiled" the one giving the orders was laughably ridiculous.  Someone makes a lot of typing errors, so they deduce that the guy is overweight?  I think even the gang on Scooby Doo would have discounted that kind of logic slywink

I enjoyed the other episodes, though, so I'm hoping this last episode was just an anomaly.
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/Ps4] Kingdom Hearts 3 on: October 17, 2013, 10:36:24 AM
An interview with Tetsuya Nomura reveals some new information on KH3 -
The action of Kingdom Hearts continues to evolve, and this time, Kingdom Hearts III will also integrate the ‘Free Run’ [system] that makes it possible to run and climb various areas. Additionally, the ability to fly and jump will be seeing a much greater improvement this time around

So this time, in terms of AI, Donald and Goofy will be acting more upon their own thoughts in various situations, while better reflecting their own personalities.

The characters and worlds that appeared in the series up until now will be changing in appearances; however, there will be many more new worlds. There will be a large quantity of Disney works that have yet to appear in the series.

SHIELD has already been established as being the covert clean up, behind the scenes organization that should know things even the CIA and inner govt circle may not be aware of.  While they don't have to acknowledge a hero directly, for consistency's sake they should at least be aware that telepaths, mutants, magic, etc all exist. 

SHIELD just helped a GOD fight off an alien invasion coming through a wormhole in the sky; telepathy is pretty mundane in comparison IMHO.

This is what I was talking about.  SHIELD agents should be thoroughly briefed in everything SHIELD knows about superhumans, Iron Man's technology, etc.  As a newcomer, Skye should be the one who's amazed by things, yet she seems the most open-minded.  It's still very early in the series, of course, and I'm just going to chalk last night's episode up to bad writing.  The show still works as an action/adventure, but I'm hoping they'll get a little more out-there as the series goes on.

What kind of bug did you have?  I have the UPlay version and I'm having save issues in the early part of the game.  Some people say you're not supposed to be able to save until after the first mission, but it seems like more of a bug to me.

192  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: October 16, 2013, 11:46:26 AM
For me, the problem is the huge disconnect between the Marvel universe and this show.  I know they're focusing on the non-super part of the universe, but, other than the occasional mention of a superhero, the characters act like none of the Marvel stuff even exists.  In the latest episode, the characters completely dismissed the possibility of telepathy/precognition and were amazed by a micro camera that fits in a person's eye.  In a world where people have seen the likes of Thor, the Hulk, and Iron Man suit, this just doesn't make any sense.  It would be like watching a Harry Potter TV show and having the characters be amazed by a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat.

Also, regarding last night's show, was anyone else confused by the part at the beginning?  Why were people trying to secretly move diamonds by creating such a conspicuous scene?  Why were the people on the street and subway barely reacting to such a bizarre sight?  Why did it look so much like a scene from a deranged version of Deal or No Deal  icon_biggrin

The Humble Weekly bundle has Divinity 2 for $1, so if you're going to buy Dragon Commander, you might as well buy that and still save $3.

I heard this doesn't stack for some reason.

It's not working for me, as it shows up as $23.99 even after activating Divinity 2.  I'm guessing you needed to have had Divinity 2 in your library when the sale started in order to get the additional discount.
