It's only the third game, so yeah...

That's partially the advantage of going last: You're the final one in everybody's mind.  Unless you fuck it up everybody remembers your stuff best.

The Order looked like it took far too much control away from the player.  I hate those sorts of things where I never know if I'm playing or not and they might as well just make it a cutscene I can skip.

Sorry to post off topic, but I'm getting together with my four professional voice actor friends in 8-16 months.  Does anyone know any games about hostage extractions we can play while reading a script aloud?

-Autistic Angel

Yeah, those fake voice overs were as stilted as ever.  But totally destroying a house looks pretty damn sweet.  We'll see how close the real game comes to that, though.
Where did they destroy a house?


Rainbow Six Siege "pre-alpha" footage (which seemed more like target hopeful footage).

The Crew promises coast to coast driving without loading.  That would be truly impressive if true.  It does look to have a lot of road and off-road terrain to drive on. 

This basically describes Fuel, which already did something like that years ago.  slywink

That trailer for The Crew was pretty terrible, but what they showed behind them of gameplay still looked good.  I'm looking forward to trying it out on the show floor and see if it's any good.

Immediately, it said "You're in!" and then had a link to download it or something.
130  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Battlefield: Hardline on: June 09, 2014, 09:53:12 PM
Yeah, I got into the PC beta through the web page (signed into an Origin account, of course).
131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: June 09, 2014, 09:52:29 PM
So they released the full 16 miles of the famed Nurburgring today for free.  That makes the third free track now since launch, which is hopefully making people finally feel pretty good about this game as a whole.

GameSpot has a pretty good article up about the making of the track including this fine quote:
Quote
"The time we put into Nürburgring is worth probably four or five regular tracks," says Wendl. "From a sheer production perspective, it takes forever. We had over 30 artists working on it for 13,000 man-hours. It's just an incredible effort to build this thing."

Oh, and I also noticed that the car pass is on sale for Gold members for only $33 instead of $50.  Which is an even better deal now that they've just turned it into 8 packs of 10 cars instead of 6 packs.

Tough crowd here, I thought Forza was looking good and now has day/night and weather something that was deemed lacking by some.  Still need a decent wheel for the new console.

Not sure where you get the tough crowd for Forza.  I'm totally psyched for Horizon 2 and think it looks great.  I've tried to download the Nurburgringdinglingwing but it is priced at $5, not the FREE they said it would be.

That trailer as definitely cool but I'm not sure if there is much for someone like me that primary plays single player.  Plus I sold my Xbone copy of this so I guess I can't try it anyway.

142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: June 08, 2014, 07:45:21 AM
I just finished it tonight.  Some things were enjoyable and decent but in the end I don't think I really enjoyed it all that much as a whole. 

I spent a lot of time with it but I didn't complete all of the side missions.  I kind of gave up on some of them near the end but was still over 80% complete on everything (forgot to look).  In large part it does smack of Ubisoft: The Game, for good and bad. 

The early hours were really full of frustrations and annoyances.  There are mechanics like the ctOS scans that are poorly thought out and just seem unfair, and things like the reputation system that seem half baked in execution.  It is full of insta-fail missions of several types throughout.  I found myself either using my silenced pistol or grenade launcher all the time, since you're either taking enemies out one at a time or being swarmed by tons of them.   

I didn't really care for the story or characters either.  It was all kind of a mess and I mostly quit paying attention about half way through.  They're clearly leaving plenty of hints at a sequel after the credits, so hopefully they can do something more with it next time.  And hopefully it's not run into the ground in yearly installments.

Trying to finish up Watch Dogs.  Not particularly enjoying it but figure it's easy enough to finish up the story missions.

Might play some Mario Kart 8 later today or tomorrow.
145  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie]Ant-Man on: June 07, 2014, 10:27:29 PM
Apparently they got a new director and co-writer.  Peyton Reed (Yes Man, The Break-Up) is directing, and Adam McKay (Old School, The Other Guys) is a new writer.  Hmm.  Reed hasn't directed any action movies and arguably not a lot of fitting comedy either.
146  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Planetside Next (Planetside 2) on: June 07, 2014, 04:39:28 AM
I guess they're finally ready to start advertising the PS4 version as "coming soon".  Here's a trailer.  I'm sure we'll hear more next week at E3.

PC Driver now available for XB1 controller


I wouldn't mind replacing the well-worn wired 360 controller I use for PC games with a new XB1 controller.  Does anyone know the steps to make one of these talk to a PC wirelessly (I do have a bluetooth transmitter on my motherboard, if that's relevant), or does it only operate while connected via USB?

-Autistic Angel

I don't think it's possible to use the Xbox One controller wirelessly with the PC at all, since it uses a unique new wireless communication.  I think you're stuck using it through the USB connection only, unless they release a wireless adapter at some point.

Oh boy, just what the world needed, another third party gaming client.  And they say the big deal is you don't need an account, but you already had to have one to buy anything on GOG.com anyway, so it's not like they're really saving you any hassle there.

I doubt they will have a booth presence at E3, so sending out a press release during that time would probably just get more lost in the shuffle of everything else at that time.

Yeah, this should be good for the long-term health of the game.  It's a fun game but like most FPS's their Steam player numbers have continued to drop since it launched.

Quote from: forgeforsaken on February 11, 2014, 09:13:34 PM

Fun game, but could easily be improved by getting rid of aim down sites and adding alt fire.

Hmm, but half the game is about customizing your weapons to do exactly what you want, so you just make your loadout with the exact firing/projectile types you like and switch weapons.  With alt firing modes I think a lot of players usually only used the one mode they prefer. 

Plus, part of the customization includes adding sights, scopes, etc. and I know I used sights all the time on my medium range guns.

I'm not really sure it matters much this long after the game's original release. Those who were willing to buy an Xbox One for this game have probably already done so.

Certainly, the people who would buy the console solely for that game already probably did.  But for those holding off it all comes down to the tipping point where there are enough games that you want to play to make it pass your mental purchase barrier.  Having one less exclusive game for people looking to pick up an Xbone (or any console) makes it slightly less appealing.
155  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Dead Rising 3 on: June 05, 2014, 04:15:13 PM
That's great news for PC gamers, and I might almost be willing to double dip and play through this again if it isn't full price.

Kind of bad news for Microsoft, though, since I felt like DR3 was one of the best reasons for my Xbox One. 
156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mario Kart 8 [Wii U] on: June 04, 2014, 09:01:26 PM
Man, after watching some videos I realized that there are still several power ups that I have never gotten.  I did just get the infinity/8 for the first time when I was doing poorly in a 150cc race, but I didn't even know there was a golden mushroom or bullet Bill power up.  I've never gotten the star or the squid (though have been hit by it plenty) either.

Also, the Koopalings are such products of the late 80's early 90's.  I'm surprised Nintendo didn't try to redesign them a little bit to make them a little less embarrassing.

GAME Barnsley (whoever they are) posted an interesting tweet earlier today, saying: "#TheLastOfUs hits #PS4 next week!!" and information on how to preorder. They retracted the tweet later, saying that it was a misprint and an overeager staff member. Take it any way you want, but we could get a "and one last thing: You can buy The Last of Us PS4 right now" during Sony's press conference next week, though it's healthy not to get one's hopes up too much.

That wouldn't surprise me too much at all.  It's been long rumored/leaked as a June release anyway, hasn't it?
