Fired up Biohock with the intent of actually finishing it.  At some point, it lost my save game, so I'm starting from scratch.  I seem to be doing a bit better.

Biohock, eh?  Is that the pig dissection game?   icon_lol icon_razz

Well, for anyone who thinks they have played a lot of the game and has an idea where it should go and what they should do to fix it, you can apply to be flown out to the dev studio in Sweden (all costs paid) for a few days to give your feedback in person!

I'm sorry, when there are never any official words on things there is little to go on but anecdotal evidence.  And there were more than the one person reporting the similar issue in that thread, including people who were able to test and reproduce the error as they discovered new planets. 

If we're not going to report on potentially game breaking bugs, what the fuck do you want to talk about?  I'm still waiting for the multiplayer that you insisted was in the game...

It's not a bug but the result of the discoveries not having been uploaded properly to the servers due to them being overloaded in the first few days. The person who originally reported the problem later got the "lost" discoveries back when his game synced up.

It's kind of fascinating how people will jump all over the dev for saying things that turned out not to be true, but then turn around and not apply the same standards to themselves when spreading rumors about what's true or not in the game (see: the list of missing features someone compiled on Reddit, which was full of features that actually were in the game but which the author just hadn't stumbled upon because of the RNG).

This game's release has been a clusterfuck of the worst kind of internet echo chamber. I normally love following discussions about new games on forums, but this game has been frustrating to follow because of all the people who aren't the target audience shitting all over it, and most of them haven't even played the game to begin with. There's a bizarre form of schadenfreude over the game's release, as if some people are insulted that someone would dare release something that doesn't appeal to them.

Kind of like people who won't admit they were wrong about features they insisted were in the game, but turned out not to be...

Be as defensive as you want, but they clearly stated multiple times that there was multiplayer, that you could fight other players, and see other players.  It's not in the game.  That is a lie.

Also, that original Reddit thread compiling the list of features not in the game was actually updated over time as each feature was proven to exist.  So he admitted he was wrong in those instances.  I'm not sure why you insist on spreading false facts of your own so consistently.

And once again, the multiple people reporting the loss of early discoveries were all connected when this was being reproduced NOW.  It seems more related to the game only caching a certain number of discoveries for your player and you only have access to that most recent list until you go back to the new area, uninstall the game and reinstall so it caches to the closest to that location or something.  It doesn't seem to have anything to do with the day 1 server issues and other people are still having the same issues right now.

Well, the last year or so has been a pretty serious disappointment for this game.  Progress has been slow, and every two steps forward seems to take one step backwards at the same time.

But, they just announced that Wreckfest will be coming to Xbox One and PS4, so they must have made some publishing deal.  And of course they are now talking about all the work they are finally doing on the PC version as well, so we should see a finished product at some point.

http://www.wreckfestgame.com/wreckfest-console-versions-and-stuntfest-announced/
http://www.wreckfestgame.com/wreckfest-status-update/

And in addition to that, they announced they are making a separate product called Stuntfest, that seems to be taking their tech demo craziness and mixing it with the old FlatOut ragdoll games.

They have brought back the preordering system to their website with the old multi-tier backing levels, including some deals right now to get both games on Steam and consoles for a decent price:

And now it appears as if there is a limited number of discoveries you can make before it starts overwriting the old ones.  Cripes.

Don't just jump on the rumor wagon based on anecdotal evidence. The person who started this rumor wasn't connected to the servers when he discovered the systems he later lost, and many others weren't either because the servers were unstable for the first few days.

Quote from: TiLT
Your speculation, while fine in isolation, is pointless when Sean Murray has said multiple times, in no uncertain terms, that you can meet and interact with other players. Among other things, he's said that the only way to know what your character looks like is to meet other players, though the game won't ever tell you that it's a player and not an NPC you're looking at. Speculate all you want, but as long as Murray isn't replying to this discussion (and he's being very active on social media these days, replying to all kinds of stuff) we can reasonably safely assume that the plans haven't changed, but that there is some other reason those two players haven't met. For all we know, it could be related to the stuff at the center of the galaxy. It's more likely it has to do with the hammered servers.

Ubisoft is doing something we often wish companies would do: delaying the next two expansion DLC packs to focus on fixing the core game

Full info in the link, pertinent schedule updates here:
Quote
Update 1.4 will be released in October independently from Survival, and will focus entirely on bug fixing, game balancing and other improvements. Survival, the second expansion that was initially planned for release with Update 1.4 is now postponed to a later date this year. The third expansion, Last Stand, will be released in early 2017. This new schedule will not only enable us to strengthen the core experience before adding new content, but also continuously improve it by allowing for more production time to ensure the quality of future updates as well.

And what they are fixing for the core experience:
Quote
Can you give us more details on the changes to the core experience?

At the moment we are looking at the following topics:

 - Fixing bugs, including those listed in our Known Issues as well as many other ones
 - Making loot drops more relevant to the player
 - Enemy difficulty and time to kill
 - Gear Sets and weapons rebalancing
 - Solo player experience
 - Dark Zone and PvP balancing
 - Quality of life additions based on community suggestions (such a weapon skins no longer taking inventory space)

I was familiar with the word "subduction" but not so much with its opposite cousin.  icon_wink

Yeah, to be honest I think the last time I heard the word obduction was probably back in Earth Science class something like 25 years ago, haha.  It's not even in Google's dictionary, but that's not saying much as the Chrome dictionary seems pretty limited.

Wow, I was surprised to see this thread all the way back on page 6.  It seems like nobody has been playing the DLC?

Personally I was waiting until all of the DLC was out before going back, and as of next Tuesday the 30th I guess that's it.  A bit disappointing given the whole "raising price" shenanigans and that half the DLC has just seemed like mods, but I guess that's what we get with Season Passes these days. 

Anyway, here's the Nuka World trailer as well as the full cartoon featuring Bottle & Cappy.  Hopefully this one is quite sizable and worth the wait.

I'm just annoyed at how many kids are now going to grow up and constantly misspell "abduction".   *Fist Shaking*

And how they are adding some sort of Deepest Dark Coop mode that will be launching in beta this weekend. 

Quote
Now in Beta, the newest Evolve Stage 2 map variant! A Co-op queue exclusive.

This is the Deepest Dark. The Gorgon Queen rules this nightmare world. The hunters fight rabid wildlife while the Queen's eggs hatch ravenous Gorgon children. Only by hunting and killing the Queen can our heroes hope to stop the coming Armageddon.

And if enough games are played they are releasing some free content (2 skins and one new character) at different amounts of coop games played for anyone who logs in.

I agree that Sqaure Enix has some of the worst DLC policies these days.  Unfortunately I don't think they really care that consumers hate it.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Crossout [PC] - Twisted Metal meets Mad Max meets Nuts & Bolts on: August 24, 2016, 04:35:39 PM
I can't imagine a worse name for this game, especially considering it's coming from a smaller developer and publisher.  It's just not exciting or descriptive at all to me.

But anyway, Crossout is an online action combat driving game best described as Twisted Metal meets Mad Max.  Or perhaps Interstate '76 is more fitting, since they are intending to add "Many new and exciting PvE modes and missions" and racing and such.  They call it an MMO, but I'm not so sure about that element?  I'm guessing more "mmo" in the sense of War Thunder and World of Tanks, that are not in face MMO's at all, just online games.

Here is a gamplay video for the Early Access launch that shows some early alpha footage of a PvE Convoy Escort type mission (looks more like Convoy Takedown to me...).  It looks like there is already a wide variety of vehicles and crafting/customizing parts, and I'm happy to see that you can blow individual parts off vehicles.  

Since Targem Games has made several vehicle and racing games before (including the decent 1nsane 2), I'm hoping they have the critical elements of fun offroad driving down.  And I'm happy to see they are leaning into the PvE elements, so it's not just another arena vehicle shooter as that gets old quickly.

I'm optimistic, but not to the tune of jumping in at $30 for immediate Early Access I guess.

And all of the Midweek Madness titles have armor and swords...it's a conspiracy!

26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tempest [PC] - Open world pirate ship combat action RPG game on: August 22, 2016, 06:31:43 PM
I just noticed that this game released on Steam today so had to look into it a bit.

Here is the game's official trailer as well as a slightly more informative older one.  It seems to be an open world online action RPG with pirate ship combat (no land-based pirating from what I can see, just ships).

It has been in Early Access for a while, and the reviews are mostly good.

I saw this launch trailer for Earthlock: Festival of Magic came out of Gamescom, along with the announcement that it will be available on September 1st on both platforms and be free on Xbox One for their Games with Gold promotion. 

Seems to be a western-developed game in the style of older JRPGs without leaning too heavily on nostalgia (or pixel art), from what I can tell.

There is a new expansion coming out called Natural Disasters, and they have a little teaser trailer for it

I always felt like the game was missing some destruction, so hopefully this brings the pain in a glorious way.

Quote
Natural Disasters will feature a plethora of ways to challenge would-be mayors to keep their city calm when a large-scale disaster hits. Players can plan with an early-warning system, emergency routes, and caring for the populace as they attempt to rebuild what was lost. Disasters can occur unexpectedly during play, or they can manually be triggered by mayors who have just about had it with their unappreciative citizens.

The new expansion will also introduce a new scenario editor and gameplay mode, which will finally allow mayors to win or lose the game on their own terms. Custom challenges can be designed and shared through Steam Workshop, allowing other mayors to attempt to complete them.

Should I get the Wii U or 3DS version? I'm seeing both being alright.

IIRC, they're not the same game.  I remember spending a lot more time with the Wii U version, and I think it's because it was the better one.

Yeah, they are different games entirely.  I definitely recommend the Wii U game if you have one.  And I've heard the 3DS game isn't bad either, but probably on a slightly different scale.

It's another pilot season for Amazon, with 3 initial episodes for titles that actually look interesting enough for me to check out:

Jean-Claude Van Johnson - Jean-Claude Van Damme playing "Jean-Claude Van Damme" aka agent "Johnson"
The Tick - another try at a live action Tick which seems to be getting great reviews
I Love Dick - Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn, based on a dramatic feminist novel and seeming to be the weakest entry

And as usual, once you watch them you can vote on which one(s) get picked up.
