161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Why hasn't anyone made a recent Warhammer or Vampire RPG? on: July 21, 2016, 07:07:17 PM
As for vampires, there is the game Vampyr coming from Dontnod (Life is Strange and Remember Me).  You can see their E3 trailer on that website, which doesn't show a whole lot and certainly doesn't tap into that teen angsty vampire tripe.

I do think it's kind of funny that the Souls games that inspired this are known and loved for being completely obscure with their stats and things, but this game is criticized as just being poor design. 

Personally I felt like the Souls games were in large part poor design from the beginning that hardcore fans just decided to deify as some sort of "return to roots".

Anyway, glad to see that they're updating this game and hopefully the changes make the game worthwhile.  I have to imagine the things in their Long Term plan were probably originally intended to be DLC and are now going to have to be free to appease players.  But good for them to recognize that.

Frankly, I was surprised he was only 81. Figured he had to be in his 90s by now.

Yeah, I would agree.  When I see his picture I think he has been that old for like 15 years.

And just to tie this into videogames, are we sure that this wasn't a paid hit on another Gary this week?  May the worst Gary win.

Steam charts puts this around 1600 concurrent players at peak with populations down to ~700 sustained. 

Yeah, it's spiking pretty heavily the last couple days with this sale, so I guess if you're going to jump on and try it now is a good time.  But who knows how long it will be sustained if they haven't updated the game much.

Well, I finally finished this up today.  Overall I really liked it!  I ended up playing quite a bit of it on Easy after they fixed that, just to have more fun and less punishment with the combat.

There are some areas they could definitely improve, like the loot and stuff, but I think the combat is great and there were lots of branching paths and choices to make that actually affected how the story played out and who you sided with.

The story (and voice overs) may not have been amazing, but there was some good stuff in there and a couple big revelations at the end.  And a nice Mass Effect style wrap-up at the end to kind of say how your choices along the way affected different people and outcomes.

Godzilla trailer - for the new Japanese version. 

As big of a Godzilla fan as I am, and as excited as I was for a Japanese rebirth, I can't help but think this looks really, really bad.  Like...Godzilla is just all wrong; tail too long, fingers too bony, he doesn't move his arms or legs or any other parts of his body besides that long tail when he walks.  It's like they have a mechanical Godzilla sitting on a platform and are just wheeling it around and the only part with animatronics is the tail (or more likely that part is CG). 

To me it looks worse than versions made 15 years ago and I don't understand the people saying it looks awesome at all.

Yeah, that kinda covers it.  I did just watch the Ultimate Edition of BvS the other week and I enjoyed it despite some complaints. 

The parts I thought would be the worst (Batman and Wonder Woman) were probably the best, and they tried to jam far too much into it.  But it wasn't the disaster I had been expecting.

I used a mouse on the menus, I was able to toggle fullscreen to windowed and to change resolution, though I went back to 1080p and fullscreen.

Ah, you're right, you can actually change resolution and fullscreen in the System Settings but only after you have selected a game mode which seems very unintuitive.  And clearly I missed that menu entirely with it's placement there.

And you can use the mouse in the menus, but it is invisible and just auto selects items or scrolls bars, you have no cursor like a normal PC game would.
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair on: July 19, 2016, 06:21:41 PM
I tried out the PC version briefly today and so far I have a few things say:

Bad:
Seems locked to 1920x1080 windowed mode and I see ZERO options
Supports mouse in game but not in the menus
Need to select control method on the entry menu

Good:
Can play with mouse + keyboard or controller
Game looks pretty good considering
Runs very smoothly at a consistent 60fps for me (at least in the early "calm" levels)
Giant Bugs!
Unlimited Ammo!
Destructible Buildings!
EDF! EDF! EDF!

GreenManGaming has decided to do their own summer sale, with deals changing every 48 hours and lower prices for those who are marked as VIPs (I think if you've purchased from them several times before).

The first theme seems to be space and sci-fi themed games:

I was just reading this Premature Evaluation over at RPS which is pretty entertaining.

Prophets of Rage - Prophets of Rage - new song by supergroup formed from former Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave band along with B Real of Cypress Hill and Chuck D from Public Enemy.  I think it's good, but still really missing the rage of Zach de la Rocha on vocals.

They are doing free concerts, one on Skid Row in LA over the weekend and another today in Cleveland to help benefit homeless (and protest the RNC in Cleveland, of course).

I was able to watch a couple episodes last night and so far I really like it as well.  I was surprised to see that they are
Spoiler for Hiden:
showing actual monsters and stuff so early.  I expected it to be more along the lines of just teasing for at least the first half of the series.

It definitely feels like they are "paying homage" (or perhaps just ripping off) the aesthetic of Speilberg and such during the 80's, but i think they do it well to set the mood.

Still trying to get enough time to finish up The Technomancer.  I think it's coming to a close, but I'm trying to make sure I do all the missions I can first.

I'll probably play a bit more Mantis Burn since they just put out a patch that added a new track, event and stuff.

And maybe Dirty Bomb and/or Evolve for some multiplayer.

Played all of those, but not nearly as much time with The Technomancer as I intended so I'm not done with it yet.  I need to concentrate on it and wrap that up.

Well, I think I will have to triple dip on Earth Defense Force, since I'm such a sucker for the series and want to support their PC ports.  I already owned EDF 2025 on the 360, and EDF 4.1 on the PS4 that I barely played for some reason, so hopefully this is the one that I spend a ton of time with.

$2 for each of those games isn't bad at all imo.

Sure, if you want each and every one of those games and don't own them on one of the other formats they are available on.

But I still think it's way lamer than if it connected to the internet so you could also load any Virtual Console games you owned onto it and continue to download new ones in the future.

Yikes!  Snapping a major tendon does NOT sound like fun at all.   icon_eek 

Thankfully, as you say, the cost of that sort of surgery is covered by Canada's medical system and you're not looking at thousands and thousands of dollars in debt and unable to work properly on top of it.  Not being able to game for much at a time does seem to make recovery more boring than usual, though.

Oddly enough, just yesterday I saw this picture of a guy who tore his pectoral muscle after going for the world's bench press world record.

This thing has been on every site I visit today, so either people are excited or they're marketing it really heavily. 

I mean, at this point how much does Nintendo have to market any new piece of hardware they do to get covered by game sites?  Something that appeals to nostalgia and comes out of nowhere?  Seems like a no brainer to cover it.

Thanks for all the impressions from you guys here.  You have definitely steered me away from this one. 

Or at least waiting to see if they do some major updates or anything.  I'm hoping that since this is from Hairbrained they will take a longer view on it and try to fix some of the biggest complaints.  But only time will tell, I guess.

Overall it sounds like a really cool idea that just didn't have great design or execution in all areas.  I'm sure they've sold plenty of copies just based on the cool visuals, so hopefully that is enough incentive for support.

I don't really know what to make of this, but it seems like Nintendo is going to be releasing a mini NES that can hook up to a modern TV via HDMI and NES controllers that you can plug into a Wiimote and everything with 30 games preinstalled.  Not really sure if it will connect to the eShop for more Virtual Console games or what.
