121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Aragami [PC/PS4] - stealth assassination Tenchu-style on: December 20, 2016, 05:18:36 PM
In addition to some free DLC for customizing your assassin (unlocked via missions), they have put out a big patch to try and address a lot of the complaints.

Quote
We've revamped some frustrating stuff in Aragami, like Sora's auto-aim, missing checkpoints and 'diffuse' objectives. We also redesigned the chapter stats and score systems, and the ranks now go from E to S.

There's some new 'easy' and 'hard' difficulties. Harder difficulties feature faster and more perceptive enemies, with new patrol routes for the ultimate challenge.

Some new optimizations have been added which will bump up performance on multi-threaded CPUs

Quote
Here are the full patch notes for 1.06a:
* NEW: New SKINS menu lets you customize Aragami with new clothes and assassin masks.
* NEW: Added 3 difficulty modes and redefined default difficulty.
* NEW: Redesigned the Ranking and Score systems.
* MISC: Removed Sora automatically finding Aragami.
* MISC: Improved performance on some chapters by enabling experimental graphic optimizations.
* MISC: Hikaru's vision range is now progressive.
* MISC: Enemy vision range in ALERT is now progressive once they've lost the player.
* MISC: Increased Shadow Range intensity.
* MISC: Added new checkpoint on Chapter 12.
* MISC: Moved the default save location and fixed Steam Cloud sync. Your saves should copy to the new location automatically. New locations are as follow:
** Windows: %USERPROFILE%/AppData/LocalLow/Lince Works/Aragami/
** OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Lince Works/Aragami/
** Linux: ~/.config/unity3d/Lince Works/Aragami
* FIX: Reduced explosive light lethal radius.
* FIX: Red bushes now cover against archers.
* FIX: Sound should not travel to other 'rooms' now.
* FIX: Modified the scarf physics so that it doesn't get stuck with the sword (so much).
* FIX: Killing the last enemy in a zone will now end the area alert.
* FIX: Multiplayer - Invisible warriors in Chapter 7 cinematic.
* FIX: Multiplayer - Minor fixes
* Plenty of other fixes.

Added two more games for day 18: Deep Dungeons of Doom and Shu.

Once again, ones I haven't seen in any other bundles so that's nice!
125  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Humble Bundle Yogscast Jingle Jam, new game added every day on: December 17, 2016, 11:11:22 PM
And they have further partially sold out another couple games since I posted that. 

Really surprising that they can't get more keys for them, but I guess maybe it only makes financial sense to have a certain number of each.
126  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Humble Bundle Yogscast Jingle Jam, new game added every day on: December 17, 2016, 10:16:48 PM
Added Day 17: Chronology: Time Changes Everything and Tales Across Time.

Caution, they are starting to sell out of certain keys, so if you want in get it sooner than later!
127  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Space Hulk: Death Wing - FPS on: December 17, 2016, 03:54:44 PM
I played about 1.5 hours of the single player yesterday and I enjoyed it quite a bit.  More than I did back in the beta, at least.  I did change the default keys so that Q is quick command and spacebar is melee, and that made it feel better to me.

So far I haven't had any major issues.  The game suggested basically Ultra level for everything, which is fine and 60+ fps when just walking around, but when surrounded by dozens of enemies and gunfire the framerate drops in half often.  And there are times even when the framerate is high that something just seems "hitchy" and I'm wondering if it isn't the shadows and lighting updating less often?  There are lots of dynamic lights from muzzle flashes when you and your squad are opening fire, it almost becomes dizzying.

The only other technical thing is that sometimes when I walk up to doors and try to open them they don't unless I press 'E' multiple times.  I have no idea if that's supposed to be part of the half-broken Space Hulk aesthetic (ones that work often spark and jerk when opening) or if it's just broken game scripting.  Thankfully you can always just bash in any door, so I end up doing that most of the time.

The other nitpick is that after the extended "spooky" walk where you don't see anything, when we were first ambushed by swarms of enemies nobody really said anything until they were almost all dead.  It felt...odd.  I know these are experienced Terminators but I guess I would have expected some yelling and stuff. 

So yeah, I think it's been worthwhile so far.  We'll see how long it's legs are once I try out coop and stuff.  Since this is going to be a console release early next year I imagine there will be considerable updates along the way.

I have avoided the Steam forums entirely, so maybe I'm just not aware of all the terrible, horrible things other people are seeing.
128  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: WTF Russia on: December 16, 2016, 07:53:11 PM
To me this just seems like they are doing Survivor for real.  There is nothing like the Hunger Games rules of competing, only one winning, murder, etc.  I was always bummed that Survivor was such a pussy show more about drama than anything, so I think this is kinda cool.

They like to bring up things like rape and murder in the "anything allowed, no rules" section, but then also mention multiple times that they must obey Russian laws at all times.  That seems like the mention is just trying to drum up controversy and none of that shit will actually happen because if it does then actual consequences will be paid.  Theoretically rape could happen any time on any reality show, but it doesn't because it's fucking illegal and wrong.

I think that's the problem for me.  I don't want a fighting game, I want a melee combat action game.  But I downloaded the technical test so I'll see if I can be more patient with it this time than in the previous test.

Quote from: MonkeyFinger on December 16, 2016, 02:09:56 PM

So how does it work, how does Blizzard Mountain incorporate into the game?

Very similar to the Storm Island from the previous game, you have to have progressed a little bit in the main area to unlock the events near the airport and then you just drive there and choose to "fly" to the new area.  It's a separate open world, essentially.

Unfortunately, I was one of those affected by the issue of it not thinking I had the expansion and needed to purchase it, despite having the Season Pass.  Apparently they were aware of the issue and fixing it, so hopefully it's all good the next time I fire it up.

I am so in love with this game, hoping it works out ok in the end.

Did you also enjoy the previous test they did?  It felt far too nuanced and hardcore to me at that point to be enjoyable.

I know, right?  I realize it is just a nice gesture on their part, but it does feel like a bit of a waste now.

So, going into a crappy advent calendar every day for 22 days isn't punishment enough? slywink

Well put that crappy advent calendar at the end of 7 months of keeping up with limited time promotions and it's just adding insult to injury!   icon_razz
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Space Hulk: Death Wing - FPS on: December 15, 2016, 07:51:14 PM
Yeah, the head bob setting affects the camera movement, but not the weapon animations.

Another thing to try that makes the guns feel much better (to me), is to turn off "Display weapon actual aiming" in the Options->Game menu.  This removes that little floating circle from the center of the crosshair and so you get less a swimmy focal point.
137  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Humble Bundle Yogscast Jingle Jam, new game added every day on: December 15, 2016, 06:32:36 PM

Turns out that running around constant claustrophobic tunnels in an FPS in an armored suit with weapons that bob (the 'head bob' adjustment menu does NOTHING afik) up and down like a pogo stick is, duh, not good for me and my motion sickness issues.  icon_frown

In the beta the head bob option most definitely changed how much the camera swayed when I was running around.  I don't remember it changing any character animations for the weapon, though.  I need to fire this up and double check that it's still working in that way at least.

Anybody still playing this?  I have a few Buffalo Wild Wings codes for their exclusive nose art (that many have said is the best available).  PM me to get one.

HURRY, they expire tonight (12/15/2016) at midnight.


Retracting this until I can verify that the codes I got are actually working.  The ones I tested seemed invalid.

re: saves:
Quote
Auto saves take place anytime you complete a mission or side activity, so that's a reliable way to get a save. It also frequently saves after shooting a photo, since the game needs to keep track of how many points the photo netted Frank, and you can get an auto save after dying.


Oh yeah, I see the little save icon all the time.  Very frequently.  But that only seems to save character and collectable progress, not incremental story or mission progress.  So until you hit a major checkpoint, you'll just keep having to re-do a lot of minor stuff if you end up spending a lot of time in the open world like I usually do.  It is quite annoying and makes me either have to play like a 4 hour stint or feel like I'm going to have to do it all over again tomorrow.
149  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Humble Bundle Yogscast Jingle Jam, new game added every day on: December 13, 2016, 05:21:52 PM

So far I have to say I'm somewhat impressed by how they have managed to have more unique games in this bundle.  Very few that I already had in these surprise unlocks at least.
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/PC] Dead Rising 4 on: December 12, 2016, 11:56:30 PM
Well, I still haven't figured out their stupid checkpoint saving system, but so it goes.  I always seem to start in some random spot even when I went back to my base before quitting.

Anyway, after 14+ hours I made it out of the mall, and man things get crazy quick then!   drool icon_biggrin   This is more of what I wanted after Dead Rising!!

I'm kind of sad that I wasted so much time in the mall, since I didn't realize you even progressed out of it.  But hopefully I can go back in because there are still some unsolved mysteries there.

So far I am level 45 and the game says I'm 16% done.  Yikes.

I added Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Remastered since that is also exiting Early Access tomorrow. 

This is the first game I remember playing in widescreen on my first HDTV.  Weird.

The new one (Ty 4) is actually really good, though it's a sidescrolling platformer and feels totally different.  I remember really enjoying the first one when it came out, but I don't know that it had anything that made it special.

This one has been in Early Access for quite a while.  Basically they used the proceeds from the 2D Ty 4 to help fund this, and assuming this goes well they are already planning on doing the same to the next game(s) in the series. 

I think the main reason it makes sense now is that with the revival of desire for 3D platformers they wanted to bring back Ty, but they are taking a more gradual path towards getting there than something like Yooka Laylee.

This is surprisingly a busy week for releases for me.

Buying (or already bought, I guess):
Forza Horizon 3 – Blizzard Mountain expansion
Warhammer 40k: Space Hulk: Deathwing

Watching
8-Bit Invaders: If you've been paying attention to these games (8-Bit Armies, 8-Bit Hordes), they are old-school style RTS games with the added effect that you can take the armies from each game into the others, so essentially have C&C vs Warcraft vs Starcraft now.

Filthy Lucre: anther tactical game similar to Shadow Tactics, except this time with a heist vibe.  They have added and changed a lot since the PS4 release a few months ago, so I'm hopeful it turns out well.

Astroneer: hoping that this brings a little of the magic that I wanted from No Man's Sky, but since it's Early Access I'll wait and see.
