They put up a bunch of indie game trailers on the Xbox YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/xbox/videos

I couldn't tell if it was just the stream or what, but none of the weapons seemed to pack much punch. 

It was far too brown for my liking, kind of underwhelming especially when they were in hell.

It was also clearly not actual gameplay, the camera movements were far too smooth and scripted to be manually controlled.

And finally, I think those melee moves are going to get old really quick.

Many moons later, they have finished Act 3.  Which is still not the end of the game.  They had this to say in the Kickstarter update email:

Quote
With Act 3 completed, we march to the final segment of the game and our targeted full release, late this year. Coming up in the next few months we will release a yet unannounced 6th class, the new skill devotion system, legendary items and Act 4, in which you will face the final confrontation with the Aetherials and Chthonians. Thanks for sticking with us on this long journey!

I agree that in general I'm not as in love with Tom Hardy as everybody else seems to be, but from what I remember I think he was pretty good in Locke, Bronson, Lawless, Warrior and The Drop.

Amped. I want another Amped like #2 for XB1.

Yeah!!  I could definitely go for some of that!  The Stoked games on 360 were about as close as another game came to Amped 2, but weren't the same thing.  I'd love to see Microsoft resurrect that series.  But I sure don't expect it at E3. slywink

If I'm reading this right Crackdown, Quantum Break and Scalebound won't be at E3.

Hmmm, that would be a bummer.  But yeah, I think mentioning that they'll be at gamescom sort of means they won't be shown at E3.  I guess better than just another CGI trailer, I'd rather they wait until the game is closer to ready.

If you can, always wait until the last day of the sale.  Or at least until a Flash Sale, which tends to be the lowest price for the sale.

You're right, it's probably not going to change any extreme opinions today or tomorrow, but more general awareness of something like that can help drive discussions and affect people 5 or 10 or 20 years down the line.  Hate and anger are taught to the next generation, they're not born with it.  Tolerance, acceptance and empathy generally requires some level of familiarity with the topic, so you have to start somewhere.  

130  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: June 11, 2015, 06:39:32 PM
They also have some sort of Monster Game clicker-type thing that may affect the next day's Flash Sales, but it seems to be drastically over populated and running like crap right now.
131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bugbear's Next Car Game (aka Wreckfest) on: June 10, 2015, 09:59:37 PM
Well, these guys have been mostly quiet with no patches for months as they rewrote the underlying suspension, tires and physics systems, but finally a new blog post shows the next update should be coming this month: http://nextcargame.com/wreckfest-gets-more-punch-under-the-hood-update-coming-soon/

Quote
A full changelist will be available with the update, but here are the most important changes:

- New simulator-grade physics engine with advanced tire and suspension geometry simulation.
- New DirectX 11 rendering engine with realistic physically based materials and lighting.
- 64-bit operating system support for optimal performance on modern computer systems.
- Hardware MSAA anti-aliasing with advanced foliage transparency antialiasing.
- Dedicated server for optimized multiplayer performance with command-line and remote configuration features.
- Steam leaderboards and player statistics for tracking and comparing performance with other players.
- Support for changing the track and the car in lobby as well as adding bots to multiplayer events.
- New game modes Team Race and Elimination Race, guaranteed to provide explosive racing action for 2-4 teams.
- One new track and another one completely overhauled.
- Two new cars, an American and a European one.

132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / E3 Games you care about on: June 10, 2015, 06:12:20 PM
With E3 next week, I was just curious what "big" games anybody else is excited about or interested to hear more info on.  I always forget a few

I think for me my #1 that I want more details on is the new Crackdown!   drool  Probably way too much to ask that it be a 2015 title at this point, but seeing gameplay would be awesome.

Others I'm really excited for:
Just Cause 3
Mad Max
something new from Nintendo? or anybody, really

Others I'm curious about hearing/seeing more (mostly want to see real gameplay):
Fallout 4
Star Wars: Battlefront
Need for speed
Rainbow Six: Siege
Doom
Fortnite
Overkill's The Walking Dead
Homefront 2?
Rime

Hmm, not that many games that I could actually think of.  Hopefully there are some surprises, but these days all that means is some pre-rendered announcement for a game that won't release for another 2 or 3 years. 
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Ratchet and Clank on: June 10, 2015, 04:00:05 PM
Looks pretty good.  Very much like an updated original R&C.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3/Ps4] Crimes and Punishments, the New Adventure of Sherlock Holmes on: June 08, 2015, 10:07:44 PM
A podcast I listen to had been talking about this game a few months ago so when I saw this on sale for $10 in a Steam sale some weeks ago I grabbed it.  This last weekend I finally got around to trying it out and it's fun! 

Despite the fact that it goes almost directly against my general "gameplay first" mentality I'm enjoying it through the first two (of six) cases.  I really like the aspects of finding conflicting evidence, multiple motives and having to draw your own conclusions and moral choices and everything. 

And despite what was said above about the screenshot that no longer exists, the game itself looks surprisingly good.  smile  Animations can be a bit stiff, but for what it is (a smaller budget adventure game) I thought it all looked good.

So yeah, if this interests you at all and/or pops up in a Steam sale I'd say give it a try!

No Witcher patch for Xbone yet, so I'll probably hold off on that. 

Might try a bit more LEGO Worlds.  I need to create a new world since I already extensively explored the one I had generated. 

Maybe some Marvel Heroes since it's their 2nd anniversary and I expect some events for that.

Played a tiny bit of Marvel Heroes, a little bit of LEGO Worlds, tried out BeamNG.Drive (still not really ready) and tried Ronin again (still too hard, jumping still feels off).

I also played the first couple cases in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments.  That's pretty fun, even though it's counter to my general playstyle of gameplay mechanics over story.  I really like the ambiguity of drawing conclusions from conflicting evidence.
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/9) on: June 08, 2015, 03:37:42 AM
Curious about LEGO Jurassic World, but not enough to jump in right away.

I heard somebody mention that the most recent patch significantly improved the basic movement response (possibly in the PS4 version, specifically).  Anybody notice that? 
138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: June 06, 2015, 08:04:52 PM
So they released some free new content this week: one new map and 2 new weapons, as well as unlocking the Ranked matches for those over level 10 which includes a new game type as well.

Glad to see they're supporting it, even though this content was clearly in the works before they shipped.  Hopefully they continue support for some months; the game still feels pretty sparse to me.

Another new survival game in Early Access on Steam?  Yup. 

This one looks pretty cool, though.  Survival in a forest with dinosaurs, dragons, taming them to ride around, that sort of thing.  And it's an Unreal Engine 4 so seems to look pretty good (if you can run it with decent settings, seems like performance was an issue).

Anybody tried it out?  I was thinking about jumping on it this weekend, but might be a little too early for me.

142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: June 04, 2015, 09:37:17 PM
I was hoping that would have been fixed as a priority, but I imagine maybe at this point they may be having to do a bunch of extra work to see if they can try and detect any quests that didn't give XP before the patch and then try to give it at that later point.  Lots of extra fixing and testing there.

This portion in specific is nice to see:

Quote
We do not consider it abuse to request a refund on a title that was purchased just before a sale and then immediately rebuying that title for the sale price.

Though I assume it still follows the same 14 day/2 hour policy, which might not work well since I would tend to play a new game more than 2 hours in the first few days.

This game is TOTALLY worth it!!!  This game is like the miracle baby of Minecraft and the LEGO Movie world.  So much fun!  Just discovering something new every minute.

I'm not sure how much depth there will be at this point, but for the ~45 minutes I got to play over lunch I had a giant smile plastered on my face the whole time!  icon_biggrin  And if you know anything about me, I'm both super cynical and have been frustrated with LEGO after having worked on LEGO Universe for 4 years and all the frustrations and limitations we had. 

If you're at all interested, I say jump in for $15 and give it a whirl.  And then drive a giant mining vehicle and drill a hole through a lake.    icon_smile

Don't forget about the DLC locked into hard to find $12.99 (or whatever to costs to get them) Amiibos.

Limited availability DLC. Now there's a term I thought I'd never ever use.

I wasn't really aware of any DLC locked to the Amiibos...is it anything more than some skins for customization?  In general I've just assumed all Amiibos are crap because they don't add anything useful to the game.

154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: May 30, 2015, 08:02:06 AM
Yeah, I played the single player stuff for a couple levels past the first boss and it seems alright.  Not earth shattering so far, but ok.  Each level is bigger than a Toad Treasure level, smaller than a Mario level.  Pretty straightforward so far other than finding the one hidden thing in each (which haven't been very hard so far).

The biggest problem I see with the single player portion is that it doesn't actually contribute to your overall [multiplayer] levels or coin count.  Everything in there is separate from the multiplayer meat of the game.  I was hoping it would be a nice way to get the first few levels out of the way and earn some coin for customizing, but no luck.

I absolutely hated the motion controls that they force you to use in the tutorial, but once you're in the plaza you can turn that off and it works fine.  I think they could do more fine tuning of their aiming to match modern console standards.  At the very least it seems like vertical sensitivity should be separate from horizontal, but they are on the same option.

I got to level 4, I bought some weapons.  Even before that, though, I was top scoring on my team and winning most of them with the default stuff.  That's a good sign to me, so it doesn't seem like the other early weapons are really much better overall than the starter one. 

I did have some connectivity issues.  Not sure if it's related to my internet or because half the people I'm playing with have Japanese characters for names, but three different times I got a connection error that kicked me from a game.

The game overall seems pretty fun, but I'm worried about how long it will hold my interest.  I know they're supposed to be adding content and such throughout the summer, but as it stands this feels like it should have been a $30 game or something.

Well, I had heard some good things on this so I decided to just order it from Amazon.  I'll give it a try this weekend and see what I think. 

I didn't realize this, but I read that this game actually started out early on as a follow-up to Mario Sunshine.  Makes sense when you look at the basic mechanics, I guess.  That gives me a little hope for the single player levels which sound kind of puzzle platformer-y.
