Hey, did you guys know there is an open beta coming for this game?  



 icon_wink

Seriously, though, I'm excited to play it!  I think I have decided to hold off on Horizon and other games in order to get this one when it comes out...I just know it's up my alley and on the platform I'd prefer to play shooters on (PC).
122  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Guardians of Ember (Steam Early Access) on: February 21, 2017, 04:51:25 PM
I guess they just released the Act IV expansion with 10 new zones, 17 new dungeons, new level cap, and more goodies. 

I still can't get myself to jump in, just knowing the time investment (and wrist pain) there would be, but it is 25% off for anyone else that's interested.
123  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Horizon Zero Dawn on: February 20, 2017, 08:51:09 PM
Arrrrrrrise!  Thread necro!

This game comes out next week and it looks like the review embargo is up as of today.  Sitting at an 88% on Metacritic/Opencritic.  Mostly in the 90% range, with a few significantly lower that thought it was a bit too rote and uninteresting.

After reading a few of those reviews I am not highly tempted, despite the fact that I was going to go on a new game moratorium.  Gah!   retard

Aah crap...between the last beta and this one I had installed more games.  Time to go play the "what can I delete" game again.   disgust

I bought Lego Worlds in EA, so I look forward to seeing how it is when released. Looking on Steam, the devs say that it won't come out of EA until 7 March. Otherwise, A Night in the Woods looks interesting.

Oh, yup, I had the wrong info there.  Delayed until March 7th on all platforms I guess.
126  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (February 19, 2017) on: February 20, 2017, 02:55:18 AM
I have LEGO Worlds to check out again since I have had it in Early Access.

I am curious about Badass Hero, Northguard and Hollow Knight.

I wish that Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin was available outside of VR.   disgust

I have mostly been spending it so far just playing random little games from my backlog.  Seeing if any of them are worthwhile.  Unsurprisingly, most of them are not and were just filler in bundles and random packs.

130  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Why do Forums seem disconnected from main site? on: February 18, 2017, 10:46:17 PM
Haha, not a taboo topic, just one that has been talked about around here many times for the last several years.  (and probably even more times in private or the moderator forum).

Essentially, the forums and the front page grew from different audiences, for different purposes, and since there was nothing tying them together a small animosity developed on both sides of the equation.  The frontpage had been created and run from a source of voluntary love, being more of a financial burden than anything.  The forums grew largely from half of the audience from the old Gone Gold site when that closed down and GT was still Console Gold.

There are certainly things that could be done to cross pollinate, but in the past most small posts that come from front page contributors in bursts at times tend to annoy forumites because they don't follow standard forum etiquette of contributing more than just a link and not creating new threads when a discussion already exists in a dedicated thread. 

There is also often a backend change "just around the corner", coming with the next update, next forum software, next redesign, next plan, or whatever that will try to tie them together with forum logins being used on the front page and vice versa.  But I think it just never happens because it's a lot of work and there isn't enough dedicated time/money/people to do that sort of thing for what is currently two very divergent audiences.

In the end, it might be worth it in the end to benefit both sides, but there is nobody to drive it to completion.

Quote from: Blackjack on February 18, 2017, 03:06:30 PM

I've wishlisted this for eons even though I'm essentially retired from RTS gaming.

I bought this discounted Company of Heroes pack on Steam a while back and just couldn't get back into it at all, despite it being maybe my favorite game of 2006. I tried getting back into Starcraft II some years ago, but I dunno. The whole resource gathering, base-building, unit rush blah blah feels old and tired to me now. Or I'm just too old and tired for this genre anymore, the whole unit/base micromanagement thing.

I love everything Warhammer though, so of course I still hope this might reinvigorate my interest in the genre.  icon_smile

I haven't been paying too much close attention to which direction this game is going, but DoW2 had very little in the base-building traditional RTS stuff.  It was much more of a tactical squad game than the first Dawn of War.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War III on: February 17, 2017, 06:39:22 PM
And here we have an in-engine trailer that shows a bit of an intro for the races and then real gameplay for a minute.

Oddly enough, even though the Total War: Warhammer team won the challenge today, it looks like we were rewarded with a Company of Heroes 2 Southern Fronts DLC as well as Shining Force for Sega Classics. 

Free is free, but I expected it to be for the game that won.

How does Humble Monthly work?  Is it a subscription?

Yeah, it's a subscription.  You can sign up for 1 month, 3 months or a year I think.  Basically at the beginning of the month they reveal the "premier" game in the bundle, and you can join in, and then sales are cut off for that month just before they reveal all of the other games in the bundle.  And the bundle also includes exclusive little indie games.

For example, the February bundle had X-COM 2 as the featured game, and then on February 3rd they cut off sales and revealed it also included Ryse, Abzu, Steamworld Heist, Okhlos, Project Highrish, Husk, Hollow Knight preview and Oh, Deer (which is the exclusive indie game).

The March bundle has Total War: Warhammer as the featured game.  You have until March 3rd to subscribe to 1 or more months, and you get access to the revealed featured game immediately.

If anyone wants to sign up for that using my referral link, that would be cool (but that wasn't my intention of bringing this up): https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly?refc=QEWlsl

FYI, if you were interested in Total War Warhammer, just go buy the Humble Monthly for $12 and you get it now as well as 10+ other games on March 3rd.   thumbsup

Looks like the sale has now gone live on Steam, and the first Challenge match is supposed to be taking place now (or soon).

I backed Total War Warhammer, because that seems like something that needs some good discounts on DLC.

Oh, and you can stream or take videos/screenshots all you want.
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Decksplash - skateboarding meets Splatoon from the Surgeon Simulator guys? on: February 16, 2017, 05:10:35 PM
Bossa Studios has a new skateboarding game in Early Access that takes the old Graffiti mode from Tony Hawk Pro Skater where you take over hits, ramps, rails and sections of the map by doing tricks on them.  It looks like they have a touch of Splatoon in there as well with it being a bit more freeform splatted paint on the ground.

Oh, and there are no humans.  You just control the skateboard.   retard

143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Raid [Movie] on: February 15, 2017, 11:30:09 PM
I didn't particularly think much of The Grey or Smokin' Aces, so I don't think remaking a beloved movie with a mediocre director is a great way to go forward, but Hollywood never cared about having a good plan before.

I mean...if you want the Western version of The Raid, just go watch the new Dredd movie.

It seems very strange that they would use that soccer game with it's super pulled back camera in that example.  Definitely not a great experience at that size.

This is an incredible collection.  I just wish I didn't have so many of them already.
That's the same problem I have with it.  I may do it just for the Witness and give away everything else.

That's what I ended up doing. 

I didn't have The Witness or Stardew Valley (or several of the smaller games), so I figured I would jump on it to support the cause, get a few games and have some extras to give away.  As if I didn't have enough of those already...

This was originally due before the holidays, and then delayed until this first quarter of 2017, and now has been said that it will be in the next financial year for Ubisoft so April at the earliest but more likely later this year given the little we've seen about it up to this point.

A little off-topic, but the parachuting in Ghost Recon Wildlands reminded me a little bit of Steep -- in fact I had so much joy on my first parachute attempts in Wildlands, it was almost a let down to go from that to shooty shooting.  icon_razz Perhaps we'll get snowboards in Wildlands eventually too.  icon_smile

I'm almost positive that Steep is using the same engine as a sort of "stress test" of the open world, so it wouldn't surprise me if that parachuting was a shared development feature as well. 

Also, the free Alaska DLC has been delayed a couple weeks so should now come out on February 24th.  But, here's a teaser trailer for it to tide you over.
