Quote from: TiLT on June 03, 2014, 07:01:24 PM

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?

No purchases for me this week.  Two big new games last week kind of blew my game budget for a little while.

The trailer looks pretty good (if extra shiny), but I just hope they have more gameplay in store than the overly linear first game.

Still putting plenty of hours into Watch Dogs, and I expect I'll fire up Mario Kart 8 after it arrives from Amazon today.

Yup, played a ton of Watch Dogs but still have a ways to go.  I think I need to quit getting distracted by all the side quests and just do the main story to finish it out.

I also spent an evening unlocking stuff in Mario Kart 8 in the 50cc circuit, need to go back and gold everything and do higher difficulties.

Also, I find it really funny that Microsoft is damned if they do, damned if they don't.  When they dropped original Xbox support right after the 360 came out everybody gave them hell for years. 

Now that they still have some support for the 360 with the Xbox One out for less than 6 months everybody is questioning whey they have games coming out for both.  Make up your minds, weirdos!  Tongue
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Fable Anniversary on: June 02, 2014, 06:57:27 PM
Well, it sounds like this is going to be released on the PC as well.  No real details other than a [/url=http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/seems-like-fable-anniversarys-coming-to-pc/2300-8945/]teaser trailer[/url].  Hopefully it includes some polish on top of what the 360 version was.

I guess porting a remake of a 10 year old game is Microsoft's idea of really getting behind PC gaming, heh.  Maybe they'll actually get Fable 2 onto the PC sometime.   icon_lol

I wish I had the patience and focus to learn move combinations for fighter games like I did as a teenager.  Today when I see an in game list of 20-30 moves per character with corresponding inputs, I think part of my brain just shuts down.

Hehe, yeah me too.  I get excited when I see games like this but then I remember how much frustration I had trying to do combos in the last Mortal Kombat and figure I'm just not meant to play them.
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360,XB1] Forza Horizon 2 on: June 02, 2014, 03:59:06 PM
I enjoyed the first Horizon much more than the base Forza games, despite the dumb music festival setting, so I'll definitely be picking this one up on the Xbone.

I still never made it past the first season.  I thought it was alright but couldn't see the "best show ever" comments at all.  I've heard things pick up in the second season but can't bring myself to start it up again after so long.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mario Kart 8 [Wii U] on: June 01, 2014, 05:46:29 PM
I don't know, there have been plenty of times where I'm in a nice lead on the last lap and then I'm hit by a blue shell and get passed by multiple people, and then hit by lightning, and before you know it I'm in 6th place instead of first.  In those moments it still kind of ruins the game for me. 

And yeah, I'm super sick of just picking up coin boxes all the time.

If you do the mobile invasion thing, please be a gentleman and don't leave as soon as the player starts winning the race. 

I have probably done a dozen of those races and only a couple of them had the mobile person actually stay through the whole race.  It seems once I reach about the halfway point and I'm ahead of the cops (and I'm assuming they are out of action points or something)...oops, disconnected.   icon_evil  finger
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 31, 2014, 02:16:41 AM
Man, you must be really lucky, Destructor.  I've had many chases with helicopters and now they were at the point today where they are also shooting my car with sniper rifles and doing massive damage, which is about the only way the cops can destroy my car. 

Not being able to shut down helicopters from the car seems like a total oversight; doing that would be a no brainer and help things a ton.

You all should keep these detailed impressions coming, they are doing more to sway me than the reviews I've read.

I loved Infamous and don't want to feel let down if I go this route next.  Sounds fun. 

Question, is their a lot if explicit language or sex?  From what I've read it doesn't seem to have any of this, but want to make sure.

In my limited playing I have noticed any, but I did see a video review where a profiling showed some sex... (wire figures of a girl and guy getting it on in a office.  no nudity, but you knew what was going on)

I haven't gotten to it but I believe there is some side mission storyline about stopping a sex traffic ring, but as far as I know it should be totally optional if that isn't your thing.

Star Wars is being developed by the new DICE LA team. 

I guess this different "cops and robbers" world is their idea of laying off Battlefield, but I really wish they would have just let it take on it's own identity.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on May 29, 2014, 03:16:38 AM

Then I had one to take down a convoy of 6 cars while keeping two guys alive, and I must have failed that 20 times before finally getting lucky.  And there were others as well where I just failed super quickly after spending several minutes getting to that point.  That doesn't feel good at all and made me quit multiple times.

If that's the same one I did, then it was simple (sorta, but exploitative) - basically if you follow the path, you'll find a place in the middle where they have to drive down a tight alleyway that you can raise a Barrier on to block off. Thing is, as soon as you do (no matter if they're in the alley or not), the AI no longer has a way to get through the yellow line and it knows this (because...science?). So the vehicles all stop and the yellow line vanishes and then they charge directly after you on foot or in their vehicle.

When that happened, it was just a matter of fighting them off while under solid cover in said alleyway, making sure not to shoot the two targets that must be meleed down. Then I killed everyone else and meleed the last two and I won. And nobody called the cops because I was in the middle of said alleyway, and nobody heard me (somehow).

Other tricks to the Convoy missions - the AI tends to always follow the yellow line to the letter, so get ahead of the vehicles and toss down some IEDs or something that you can remotely detonate. BOOM! There goes a car or two right off the bat. And then you're under solid cover for the incoming firefight. If you don't have that, find a spot you can Raise Barrier and wait for them to approach, and pull off the same trick.

Right, but at the point when I got this mission I couldn't raise barriers, I didn't have IEDs, and I didn't even have grenades.  So it was me versus a convoy of vehicles and every time I either got slaughtered or accidentally killed one of the targets.  Even accidentally tapping a bumper sets everybody off to start shooting you.

They just have a ton of missions that are insta-fail if you do one thing wrong, rather than letting you handle things in a variety of ways, and to me that's just poor open world gameplay.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 29, 2014, 03:16:38 AM
I played for many hours today and I think I've finally gotten to the point where things are not completely frustrating and annoying. 

I don't know why, but some of those first missions I had were just terrible.  I think I had the same car delivery mission as Crawley, with the cops and helicopters and yellow search things.  I'm quite good at the driving but you just can't get away from the ghost cops without powers. 

Then I had one to take down a convoy of 6 cars while keeping two guys alive, and I must have failed that 20 times before finally getting lucky.  And there were others as well where I just failed super quickly after spending several minutes getting to that point.  That doesn't feel good at all and made me quit multiple times.

Overall it just seems like they have some very uneven difficulty in the missions that should have been ironed out.  Now that I have at least skill points put into the first row that is available things are feeling like maybe they should have been from the start. 
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [??] Battlefield: Hardline on: May 28, 2014, 08:48:35 PM
Looks pretty cool.  I really enjoyed Payday 2, and thought the big thing it was missing was the vehicle escapes, so I'm glad to see those here. 

Still, after getting burned by Battlefield and EA a couple times, I'm going to wait as well.

187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 28, 2014, 02:46:07 AM
Yeah, I had that same trouble running from the cops as well on a mission to take a car somewhere.  I must have driven half the city and failed that thing 10 times before finally just getting lucky.  I particularly hate avoiding the cops and then getting the yellow circles secondary detection afterwards.  Nothing like trying to drive full speed through the city while also looking at the minimap the whole time, especially when you are punished for running over civilians and your car is already smoking.

Things like this are kind of driving me nuts.  Just like the Stealth missions where just getting spotted is instant failure.  And side missions popping up while I'm in the middle of something else. 

So far it feels like an open world game made by people who don't understand what makes those games fun.  Apparently things get better as you gain more skill points and can make it less frustratingly annoying, but so far I don't find I'm having fun in the game at all.

190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 27, 2014, 08:38:12 PM
Hmm, so far I'm not really enjoying the early parts of the game.  Starting out with stealth missions that you fail if you're detected?  Super lame. 

I also don't really like how the hacking mechanic makes you have to constantly slow down and examine so many people and things.  It really ruins the flow of normal open world play.  I've only played an hour so we'll see if that lessens as time goes on.

And the movement is kind of slow and unresponsive being animation-based like the Assassin's Creed games, which drives me a little nuts.  I guess I should have expected that, but I was hoping for better.

Seems to be getting mostly 8/10, with a couple of 7/10s or so sprinkled throughout. Very few reviews so far going above those two scores.

That's about what I expected.  It looked like a solid open world action game, and since that is a genre I really like I'm down for it. 

I think if people were expecting the second coming best-game-ever, however, they'll be disappointed (like usual).

Pre-loading is now available on Steam. 13.6GB according to the downloader.

Weird, it said 18 hours before unlocking when I checked some time after 4pm, and it's not only 5 hours later.  I guess they changed their minds.  Too bad GMG is still slow on sending keys.

There are embargoes for most major games.  There were embargoes for Transistor and Wolfenstein and both of those turned out really well.  You guys are reading too much into this.

I imagine the PC download will be quite large so hopefully they allow preloads of this through Uplay, though i'm not sure if they have done that in the past.
 

This is Ubisoft you're talking about here - I frankly don't expect it to happen as that would make sense for the company.


This may all be moot anyway, since GMG hasn't released keys yet anyway.

As an aside, new Nvidia drivers just dropped with optimizations for Watch Dogs as well as general DirectX optimizations to improve load times and CPU bottlenecks.  Huzzah.

2. The ending. WTF. Wolverine just skips, what 50 years and wakes up in his own body in a future he doesn't recognize anymore? There's just no time travel logic in which that makes sense.

That part was specifically mentioned several times in the movie and was consistent with the whole plot.
Spoiler for Hiden:
The idea is that all of the changes he had been making back in the past were changing the potential future and as soon as he returned to that future timeline the past was now "set" making that alternate timeline having happened and he would be the only one that knew the previous timeline.  They had specifically mentioned this before they put him under and also that was how they used Bishop to avoid the Sentinels time and again.  It would make sense that he didn't know the 50 years in the alternate history because he hadn't actually lived it.

I saw this today as well and really enjoyed it.  I had avoided all of the trailers and hype so went in pretty much knowing nothing other than there was some time travel involved. 

I would agree it is probably the best X-Men movie, though I wasn't the biggest fan of all the others.  I know I didn't catch who all the side characters were in this one, but I enjoyed it regardless.

Hmm, that's interesting.  Not in a good way, of course. 

I've heard that Edgar is very particular and will re-shoot things many times to get the shot he wants, but that seems to have done him well in the past.  Could just be that Marvel doesn't want to concede total control to somebody else.
