I was thinking it was probably way to late to jump on this train and way to much money for them to expect to make it back.  Until I read this quote:

Microsoft also expects its deal to pay off almost immediately. It anticipates the deal will break-even by the end of fiscal year 2015, which ends on June 30, 2015.

Which just blew my mind.  They must be making way more money on the DLC skin packs and texture packs and new copies than I had realized.

Hmm, I think their servers are crumbling, I keep getting disconnected every few minutes.

As for the Odin's Bounty quest, I tried that last night and so far I'm not a fan at all.  Trying to kill those Rock Trolls in any decent number seems nigh impossible so the whole thing is just a waste of time.

I don't really want to play the game until it's officially released, though I've been a backer since the very beginning of this game's development.

Yeah, same here.  I've been waiting for the finished version before jumping in, especially since releases seem to go in fits and starts.

I guess it doesn't help that I also have Diablo 3 and Marvel Heroes to sate my hunger for action RPG right now.

Since they decided to dick over PC users once again I'll probably just wait for a Steam sale before double dipping on a new version of this.

Aww yeah, can't wait to get home and try out the new patch!  This will be my first Odin's Bounty, but it sounds like they've improved it quite a bit.

Interested to see how the Cybernetics upgrade system works and if it gives decent upgrades.  At the very least it will be nice to be able to auto-grab all that junk loot and have it used for something positive rather than just leaving it around.  Thankfully I got 2 random pets from the Cosmic events stuff, so I have something to upgrade.  smile

Excited for the Currency UI tab, as un-sexy as a feature like that is, heh.

I haven't been paying attention, is this game doing something more with off-road racing?  I noticed they've got a Land Rover in there now, Jeep Wrangler, and Mercedes G Class in there.

Yeah, it looks like they're doing quite a lot more with it this time.  Lots of trucks, rally cars, and other offroad vehicles, and their videos are featuring a lot of dirt and grass driving. 

They had the rally expansion for the last game but it seems they are going further with it from the start, and building the world without artificial barriers.

These are all good things from my perspective.  smile

Weekend Deal



$4.99 Metacritic score - 94
I only played a little Skyrim on a console but I liked it, so I'm definitely considering getting it on PC. Is it worth getting the Legendary Edition with all the DLC at the same time, or wait and pick the DLC up later after working through the main game?

There is plenty of gameplay just in the core game itself, so don't feel bad if you go that way, but I would probably say just go for the Legendary bundle if you think you'll enjoy the game at all.  It's cheaper in the bundle and that is at the cheapest price it has ever been right now, for what that's worth.

Looks like the demo will be going live on the 16th (game comes out on the 30th) and they've released the full list of cars including the Local Motors Rally Fighter!!  Fuck yeah!   headbang Cabbage Patch

Also, here's a launch trailer that actually got me even more excited about the game.

Ah, but a card game gets rid of the fun of playing miniatures!  slywink

Thanks for all the info, though.

One thing about bands, they could turn into a huge 3rd party accessory market if the watch does catch on. Don't like the Apple bands, or they are too expensive? I bet you will have tons of options.

135  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Space Hulk on: September 10, 2014, 06:02:08 AM
For somebody who's only really familiar with Games Workshop's Warhammer and 40K games, how is Space Hulk different?  I understand it's more of a linear one-on-one experience, but are the basic mechanics the same as 40K?

Also, I read that it can be played single player?  Is that a decent experience?
136  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Smash Bros. 3DS on: September 09, 2014, 09:12:37 PM
Interestingly (not in a good way), it sounds like this will work with the extra analog stick and buttons on the New 3DS but not with the Circle Pad controller extension.

Haha, yes, it was Midtown Madness last week and I was just amazed at all the crazy loot.  I couldn't resist taking a few after-the-fact screentshots even though I had already picked up some loot and they fail to convey the real chaos of the situation:

http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/37474018496721501/FE9F7DBE3A7A0093234536020CCC5A5A62A37AE9/

This week was Cosmic Chaos, which was alright but I sort of missed out on the big stuff because I wasn't high enough level for the specific instances.  I finally hit the low 50's, though, so should be good to go for the next one.
142  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So, um, Jack the Ripper is Solved on: September 08, 2014, 04:44:26 AM

Quote from: McBa1n on September 07, 2014, 02:38:46 AM

One other point is if you follow the game, you'll see that there are always events going on - giveaways and that. Also, if you read the Heroes forums, you'll be blown away by how good the community is and how good the communication with the dev team is. Well, I was blown away, anyway. Never seen anything like it.

Yeah, that's what I've really learned so far.  Every week is a new event and it just keeps me wanting to log back in to do something new.  It's pretty great!

And there are lots of missions and events and everything so far that I play exactly as you say, I log in and just kind of go play whatever feels fun for today.

I don't even know wtf a Grimoire or Shader is in relation to Destiny, and I don't even know if I'll be buying the game, but I'll be damned if I won't enter any free code available!  smile

iirc Grimoire is like  an encyclopedia of all things Destiny universe.  You can read up on lore, backstory, etc.

Oh, well in that case it seems like a total waste.  First off I clearly don't care about Destiny enough to read about it, but even if I could I imagine anything you want is on the internet anyway so I'm not sure why you need an "in-game" code for it.

Good luck, man!  You're right to not to beat yourself up about one slip-up, negative reinforcement never works.  Just keep trying, be mindful of it and you can do it!

I had "only" smoked for 5 years and still had serious trouble kicking the habit.  It took me several tries over quite a while, but I was eventually able to do it.  I think they say you're more likely to be successful each time you try.

Curious about Stronghold Crusader 2.  I've heard good early reports that it fixes many things from Stronghold 3, but I'll wait and see how it turns out for real.

Hmm, after looking this up it appears it won't be launching until September 23rd.

I started playing this a few weeks back for some reason, maybe due to anticipation of Diablo 3 on consoles.  It seems like I find it more enjoyable and compelling than Diablo 3 on the PS4, though, since I'm back playing it again before finishing D3.

After a couple hours of playing I picked up the Avengers pack when it was on sale on Steam so I could play as Hulk.  For some reason I didn't realize that the character you choose at the start is the one you get for good, otherwise I might not have chosen Captain America since he's already in the Avengers pack. I guess it doesn't matter too much, I've spent almost all my time playing Hulk anyway.

Anyone else still playing this?

That extra polish, where crack teams of level designers hand place those crates and overhanging ledges that you inexplicably climb onto during chase scenes.

Believe it or not, but they've actually completely overhauled the control scheme for this game, and what you're describing is no longer going to be an issue. From what I understand, you've got a dedicated button for running that won't send you up walls, a button that makes you climb up, and a button that makes you climb or jump down in a safe way. They even made fun of the same thing as you in one of their recent videos and bragged about how they've solved that problem completely.

I really want to believe, but after buying Black Flag and being bummed that the same old controls were there I'm pretty hesitant to jump in again.  I'm glad they are at least acknowledging the problem and trying to correct it, though.

I'm right about the same point.  It's farther than I made it playing the PC version originally, so I'm glad to hear "the good stuff" is yet to come.  smile
