Oh, and there's a free demo up in the PS Store for those who want to try it first.
162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest Builders [PS4/Vita] - like Minecraft with decent quests/combat/etc? on: October 12, 2016, 12:31:23 AM
So, this came out today.  Did anybody else pick it up?  

I haven't really had a chance to play it yet, just started it up and it seems cool.  

The one very minor thing I can already tell is that I wish it had variable height jumps, so I could jump just enough to get up to the next level rather than the slight over-jump that it does now.  It just really ruins the rhythm of jumping up multiple levels.

EDIT: I didn't realize it also came out on Vita, so put that in the title.

I'm getting Dragon Quest Builders due to all the great reactions.

For anyone on console that is interested in top-down racing, definitely give Mantis Burn Racing a look.  I've got the Early Access version on Steam and it's pretty great.

If we weren't already deep into the fall rush, we are definitely knee deep in it now!

This week also sees the launch of the PlayStation VR, which seems to be getting pretty mixed impressions and reviews from the press.  Very unfortunate, as I thought this would be the big chance for VR to hit a mass market point of accessibility.

Assuming you were not in the path of Hurricane Matthew currently sitting without power, and are not too busy celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving or dealing with a maple syrup turkey log hangover (or whatever you do up there), what are you buying this week?

Yeah, this game is definitely not one for those easily frustrated.  It's extremely unforgiving, and at times I have no idea why I was spotted when in full shadow. 

I also hate the fact that your shadow powers are so restricted in distance.  Most of the time I can't even look straight ahead and jump 20 or 30 feet to a shadow I can clearly see. 

But I do like the general working of the zipping to shadows mechanic more than I thought I would.  And the game has a great visual style.  It just makes me want to punch babies.

Is it possible there is some mechanic you are not using, or perhaps misunderstanding some component of the game? I've read multiple posts about people completing the game in 5-8 hours and calling it "too easy". I actually prefer it be as difficult as you are describing.

At that early stage, there are no more mechanics available to me than what I am using.  The biggest thing is that I prefer to take out all the guards and it seems like you can just zip past most people if you really don't care about that, but that isn't how I like to play these sorts of games I guess and sort of defeats the purpose.

Forza Horizon 3

Steep Beta

I think I'll probably spend some time with the Steep alpha/beta (they call it different things in different places...) first to see what I think.  Then probably more Paladins and Forza Horizon 3.

Well, thanks to a fuck-up from 2K for not including product keys in Mafia 3, it looks like I have one less game on my plate this weekend.   disgust

I'm excited for this game, and similarly to Bullwinkle I'm kind of happy for the delay so it gives me more time to hopefully finish the Remastered first one before release.

Here's a new World Editor video showing off how you can modify any area of the procedural mountains and share it online.  I am hoping that means there will be lots of quality runs and parks for a long time to come (one might even say...an infinite amount).

As I mentioned in the buying thread, Year 2 for Dimensions launches today with their first wave featuring several kits of different sizes:

Ghostbusters - Story Pack (new movie, supposedly the equivalent of a full new LEGO game)
Adventure Time - Level Pack
Mission Impossible - Level Pack
Harry Potter - Team Pack (Harry and Voldemort)
Adventure Time - Team Pack (Jake and Lumpy Space Princess)
A-Team - Fun Pack (B.A. Baracus and van)

They have also done a new thing this year, where something like the B.A. Baracus A-Team figure is the only A-Team real-world kit being sold but in the game it can actually be used to control any of the A-Team members.  Fewer packs to buy, more possibilities in the end.  Woot!
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Homefront: Revolution on: September 27, 2016, 03:39:22 PM
They have announced that the first DLC pack, The Voice of Freedom, will be out later this week.  A 2.4 GB patch has hit Steam today in preparation of this.

Nice!

If this sort of thing interests you, I highly recommend checking out The Up Series of British documentaries (Seven Up, 7 Plus Seven, 21 Up, etc).  They did a documentary following a series of 7 year old children in 1964, and then revisiting them every 7 years continuing on with 56 Up from 2012.  It becomes a real reflection on life.

I think they give generic drivatars to people who have played any at all, and the more you drive the more like you it supposedly gets. 

I often see people in these games from my friendslist (or not) that have a level 1 Drivatar, and that generally means that they haven't even played this iteration at all.

Open world can be Far Cry, but it can also be anything from The Witcher 3 or Fallout 4, to Firewatch, The Witness, Zelda games, Diablo, WoW, Forza Horizion, the GTA games, Divinity: Original Sin, ARK: Survival Evolved, Terrarria, Subnautica, Hitman, Planetside 2, Dying Light, Dead Rising, Farming Simulator, Eurotruck Simulator, and many, many, many others of different kinds.  If you think all of those games are just shallow filler, then fine, but we'll have to agree to disagree.

They say they have enough funding to finish the basic game, and this is additional funds to add more content to the game. 

There is gameplay video and also a 3 level prototype that you can download from the Kickstarter page.

Earlier this week I decided to reinstall Skyrim and start from scratch. Yeah, my life is already draining away. But I will say the second time is already much more fun because I don't have an overwhelming obligation to my ever-expanding quest log. If I want to do something, cool. If I want to explore somewhere and see what's there, fine. It's a relief to just sit back and find myself enveloped by the game world and as a result I'm enjoying it so much more. As an added bonus, the more time I sink into Skyrim, the less chance there is of me spending money on other games. smile

You couldn't have waited a few more weeks for the free update?  Haha.

And more matches in Paladins, I'm sure.  And possibly a bit more Zombie Night Terror when I have time.
