I had to work yesterday, but today I mostly just played Battlefield 4.  I tried playing Broken Age but was getting impatient with it and figured I need to wait until I'm in a better mood or I'll ruin the whole experience.

I'd love to get this, but I know it will end up being another game I play once at work with other people around and then not touch again.

Well, the game is now officially available on Steam Early Access in the store.  To celebrate I guess they released a patch/update as well.

Patch notes (nothing too huge):

Spoiler for Hiden:
Here are the most important changes:

- Implemented iterative engine component damage + related HUD visuals.
- Fixed damage direction deduction so that damage is allocated correctly.
- Fixed position counter so that the player cannot be further back than the last.
- Changed the position counter to always show the number of cars that started.
- Removed player kill areas from environments.
- Reduced arm-co friction and wooden fence mass.
- Implemented environment geometry fixes and polishing.
- Implemented lighting tweaks, and added lens flares.
- Implemented constant vertical FOV to support widescreen resolutions.
- Fixed user interface bugs and added general polish.
- Fixed a couple of minor audio issues.
- Improved general build stability.

Edit: Also, someone should update the thread title to read "Broken Age" instead of Double Fine Adventure.

Done and done.  smile

I'm a backer for both The Banner Saga and Broken Age, so I will be getting both on PC. The Banner Saga is actually preloaded already.

Seems like ideally it would be nice if you could also specify broader categories for games that haven't been fully locked down.  Things like Q12014 or Y2015 and such, and then be able to include all games also releasing in the months included in those broader categories when viewing them.

Probably not possible with a simple Google Doc, more of a "would be cool" thing.

I also repeat that Family Sharing was never, ever officially announced. Likewise, MS didn't really say anything concrete about licensing. Everything collapsed when they realized they didn't know what they were doing, and Sony called them out on that. Family sharing was a myth released as a document by some random person after the fact, probably an MS employee, but that service was never announced and no one can ever say it was going to be implemented, and there's a lot of conflicting info about how this mythical sharing plan would have been implemented anyway.

People are getting upset over the loss of some non-existant, mythological program that never existed.

That's a load of bull, Family Sharing it was very definitely announced. 

Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games.  Anyone can play your games on your console--regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.

Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friendís house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games.  You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.

the trailer video of this makes it look like a Devil May Cry ripoff?

In some ways sort of, I guess.  It's certainly not a normal Metal Gear Solid game.  It's made by Platinum, the company founded by the original DMC director.  They also made other action games like Bayonetta, Vanquish and Anarchy Reigns so it's not too different for them.

Bugbear has said that the number of backers has more than doubled since they released this early access demo, and they have now surpassed their goal for the failed Kickstarter by quite a margin.   thumbsup

Gamestop is going to be so screwed.

I'm not so sure.  This is serving people who have PS4s to be able to play PS, PS2, and PS3 games.

The streaming can be used on about anything Sony. Even Bravia TV's will be able to do it.

Not to mention tablets and phones of all types in the near future.

Those sound like terrible ways to play games made for a real controller.   icon_confused

Yeah, I've had similar things happen because of audio coming from my computer.  Frequently I'm listening to the GiantBombcast or watching some of their videos on my laptop as I play games on my Xbone, and they are always saying things that make my Xbox perk up its ears.  I think sometimes they are just trolling trying to shut off people's Xboxes.

Yeah, I would be sure to let them know.  It may change how they choose to deliver in your area or they may contact the USPS and make sure they are getting things done on time.

Hmm, Fox shows are available on free Hulu (not Plus) and you definitely don't have to prove you have cable to use that.  I've also watched ABC shows on Hulu, so I'm assuming (hoping) those continue to be available there as well.

I'm assuming the maps on the Xbox One are the same as the PC since they are running 64 players.  The reason they make them smaller on the older consoles is because they larger maps don't work well with smaller player counts.

Hands on reports from a limited showcase are never going to be the real story with streaming tech.  OnLive and Gaikai both showed fine in limited demonstrations, it's how they do in the wild that determines whether people will be able to use them (or want to).
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2890 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: January 07, 2014, 07:06:53 PM
Yeah, hard to know how to read that.  They did launch the PS4 in almost 3x as many territories, but I wouldn't consider any of those to be major ones.  It would be interesting to see a true 1:1 comparison of systems sold in the same countries.

Either way, 4.2 million makes for a larger gap than I was personally expecting.

I agree, which is why I further think it was stupid to release prematurely without a killer Kinect app that set them apart.  Yeah yeah I understand wanting to compete with PS4 for the holiday sales but I'm not sure it was worth the perception that they "lost" the first release battle. 

I think the Xbox One had a stronger game lineup, so I'm not sure where the perception that they "lost" any first release battle.  Certainly there was no killer Kinect app unless you care about Kinect Fitness, but they had much better exclusives in Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct and Zoo Tycoon.

I'm also definitely interested in:
Watch Dogs
Infamous: Second Son
Broken Age (KS backer)
Carmageddon Reincarnation (KS backer)
The LEGO Movie Videogame...I'm a sucker for these

And these ones are a "Maybe" if they turn out good:
Dying Light
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (may just get the PS4 version and skip more PC disappointment)
South Park: Stick of Truth
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z
Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare
Fable Anniversary

Are booster packs completely random?   As in when you get them?   I don't think I've ever gotten one.

They're random based on an event.  To be eligible you have to first play the game enough to unlock all of the normal free cards and also keep logging into Steam once a week.  Then, whenever somebody crafts a badge for that game everybody eligible has a chance to get a booster pack, or after a certain number of badges are crafted.  Your Steam level affects your chances, as mentioned above.

It seems like "All You Need is Kill" is intentionally derivative of the Beatles "All You Need is Love" and not necessarily bad translation.  Of course it could just be coincidence but thats a pretty weird coincidence.

I don't think "All You Need is Kill" even makes sense as a sentence, though, unlike "All You Need is Love".  I think it would have been better to be "All You Need is DIE SUCKER!".

Diablo III for sure.  It seemed like such a no brainer that this would be a great game.  When I was actually able to play the game I found that I didn't like it very much, so I only put a few hours into it.  I'm hoping the patches and expansion can maybe fix it, but I may just get the PS4 version instead.

I just watched this last night and I quite liked it.  Maybe I had lowered expectations going in, but I thought it was fun even if it wasn't perfect.

Sure, there were some elements that didn't pay off like I expected them to, like the expert car stealing stuff, but I just took that more as backstory for this troubled main character who has tried to turn his life around.
