Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus a  (no, not a joke name!)

The a at the end is alpha.

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.

Also, Crackdown!  If they can bring that Red Faction level of destruction into a Crackdown open world game like they're hinting at, I am going to pass out from joygasms.

164  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.

You know, I think it's cool that Watterson was willing to do this and auction off his art, but seems like a shame he chose that comic to guest in.  I've never really understood what people see in Pearls Before Swine.

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.

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.

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 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.

This is great news.

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.

Quote from: TiLT on June 05, 2014, 04:43:25 PM

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.
177  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. 
178  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?

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.
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360,XB1] Forza Horizon 2 on: June 02, 2014, 07:05:59 PM
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
187  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=]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.

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

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.
