161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Amazon Prime price hike coming? on: June 12, 2014, 07:46:50 PM
This was the most recent Amazon Prime thread, so I figured this could go here: Amazon is introducing Prime Music streaming, active as of today. 

Quote
A little more than 3 years ago we launched Prime Instant Video, adding unlimited streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows to the existing Prime benefit of Free Two-Day Shipping. It has turned out to be one of the most important things we've done for Amazon Prime members. Today, we are doing it again for music — introducing Prime Music, the newest benefit of Prime membership.

With Prime Music, you can listen ad-free to over a million songs and hundreds of expert-programmed Prime Playlists. Prime Music includes tens of thousands of albums from top artists like Daft Punk, P!nk, Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, The Lumineers, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. And we'll be adding more music all the time. Here's a list of popular artists in Prime Music.

In designing Prime Music, we wanted to remove the barriers between you and the music you love. We removed cost. You can listen to the entire Prime Music catalog for free — it's included in your Prime membership. We removed interruptions. Don't worry about having your music constantly disrupted by ads... you won't hear any. We removed listening restrictions. Choose exactly what song to listen to, repeat your favorite song over and over again, or download music to your phone or tablet to listen offline.

Finally, we removed one more barrier — deciding what to listen to. Just play any of the hundreds of Prime Playlists our music experts have created for you. Check out the Prime Playlists here.

Prime members in the US can start listening to Prime Music today at www.primemusic.com. Kindle Fire HD/HDX devices will get Prime Music in an automatic, over-the-air update. You can also download the latest Amazon Music app in the Android and iOS appstores. If you're not yet a Prime member, start a 30-day free trial today. We think you'll find the convenience of free two-day shipping combined with access to a huge selection of movies, TV, music and books to be an incredible value for just $99 a year.

Quote from: Fireball on June 12, 2014, 07:09:59 PM

So, the release of Mario Kart and the video of the upcoming Zelda game have me longing for a Wii U. I've had basically every Nintendo console except for the SNES, but haven't bitten on the Wii U because it sees like it might be a waste of money. Other than Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros U, and the upcoming Zelda and Star Fox games, are there enough games to make it worth the price?

Are there any baseball games at all?

Personally I think a Wii U is worth owning even just for the first party games, and there are a few third party games that I consider gravy on top. 

In addition to the ones you mentioned and all of the others coming soon or next year, Pikmin 3 is really good and just got another update.  Super Mario 3D World of course.  LEGO City Undercover was a great LEGO version of GTA.  Wind Waker HD is a good update if you want to play that again.  Apparently Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is also good if you like those games (I haven't played it).  Rayman Legends was basically made for the Wii U.

So with the ones you mentioned that sounds like about 8 games already out that are an easy good bet, and then there are those on the horizion for later this year and next.

I didn't.  I think those 20 years have just been too long, not into that humor at all.

Same price as the Christmas sale past.  Last on sale for more on Valentine's Day.

My personal thing lately, since we've been doing this for a few years now, is to look back and see if the deals have gotten better, or if they're just trotting out the same deals over and over again.

If you install the Enhanced Steam Chrome or Firefox extension you can see current lowest price from several stores and historical low prices, so you don't have to remember if it's been on sale for less before.  It also has a few small nice features like showing which games or DLC you already own or adding an Early Access banner on those games.  Small things that Steam should do but doesn't.

Lee Bradley over at x360a just put together a great post of every ID@XBox game posted during the conference.

http://www.xboxachievements.com/news/news-18410-E3-2014--ID-Xbox-on-Xbox-One---Every-Single-Trailer.html

They had a bunch of stations with these indie games on them on the show floor as well, which was nice to see.  Looks like they are taking indies seriously (finally/again).
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/PC/Ps4] The Crew on: June 12, 2014, 12:01:03 AM
I tried this out at E3 today and overall I'm still not completely sold, mostly on the handling.  It wasn't terrible, but hopefully I get in the PC beta next month and can try out more cars.

The demo they gave had me do two missions (with two other random people in my crew), the first one driving a "Perf" road car (looked like there were 6 car categories).  I didn't really want to waste time customizing so I just chose one of the premade Mustangs they had and started tooling around the city.  I have been playing a lot of Watch Dogs and Forza 5 lately, so it's not like I'm rusty on driving but I just couldn't get this car to drive really well.  It felt a bit mushy/unresponsive and kept understeering when cornering but then fishtailing when trying to go straight, so kind of the worst of two worlds.  Maybe I just chose a "bad" car for me, though, so it's hard to judge the whole game by that.  However, none of our 3 people finished the race against the AI, for what it's worth.

The second half of the demo was better with the offroad stuff.  I got to drive a Raid-style RUF which was cool.  This mission was a chase with all 3 of us trying to destroy some other Raid truck by ramming it.  We went all over the place and really got to feel like it was open world, but since we had to load into the mission and load out (through a mini cutscene transition) I'm not sure if you really could just keep driving at that point or not.

From what I could get out of the guy there, you can't actually upgrade every car to be crazy Raid offroad style or slammed or whatever, it's only certain kinds.  Which sort of rains on my excitement a bit since I thought you could take any car and make it a crazy offroad monster.  Who doesn't want a Ferrari with 34" mud tires?

You can also buy a bunch of those components in pawn shops that have a map icon like fire or explosion or something.

Quote from: Ralph-Wiggum on June 11, 2014, 04:16:17 AM

Haven't most Zelda games been open world? It seems like in most of the ones I've played, you could pretty much go anywhere you want except certain areas were blocked off until you found whatever tool you needed (bombs, boomerang, etc.). How is this Zelda going to be different?

They have all been sort of illusions of open world, with the content in locked off dungeons or like Wind Waker had you going on the boat to small islands and still locked off by needing certain items.  Supposedly this is going to be more like Skyrim, just a giant open world and you can truly go anywhere.  I'm certainly hoping for that.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Battlefield: Hardline on: June 11, 2014, 04:23:12 AM
I played a few matches of each type today.  I know I tend to be a bit cynical and negative in general anyway, but it's really hard not to just rip on this game for being basically a straight up Battlefield mod.  Same UI and everything.  Yikes.  Except they've removed a lot of the alternate objectives so it's just kind of the worst parts of BF.

And they'll still probably sell 5 million of them.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: June 10, 2014, 11:06:15 PM
I always just waited in hiding until it was about 80% probability and then started running up and did a takedown right before they did anything.

The design of those "stop a crime" missions really left me wanting.  As if preventing the crime from happening at all is less preferable than waiting for it to happen first.  And I'm not sure how many I failed immediately because I accidentally walked or drive right near the criminal.

It's funny, the earlier leaked video looked much like a new Dark Souls game, but the E3 trailer just looked like a gory horror game.  I wish they had shown the actual game, but I suppose it's too early for that.
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Dead Island 2 on: June 10, 2014, 05:54:58 PM

Quote from: TiLT on June 10, 2014, 01:09:23 PM

The first game provided me the most "authentic" zombie experience I've had in a game yet. Navigating through the town in the second chapter was particularly haunting, often requiring clever use of rooftops and sneaky movement to not use up all your resources on pointless zombie killing before you even reached your destination. I hope this sequel can capture some of that feeling.

If you're looking for "authentic" zombie experiences, you should maybe check out State of Decay as well.  That game was basically everything I was ever looking for in a zombie survival game.

Is this a full retail game or is it a DL like BF 1943?

Full release

Yeah, I think if this was a half price $30 title like BF: Vietnam or something it would go over much better than essentially being a full priced mod.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 05:48:00 PM
I assume you're talking about the Twitch stream?  There are many sources of information for E3 coverage.  slywink
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 04:46:56 PM
Man, Nintendo really knocked that shit out of the park.  Of course a lot of those are 2015 titles, but at least they are showing people what they really want to see is actually being made.

Dead Island trailers are the best.

Yeah, we'll see if they can deliver gameplay to match this time. 

Also, the video really seemed to indicate a much lighter tone, almost more like Dead Rising or something.  That sounded like Jack Black at the end.

Yeah, the majority of big stuff is next year at the earliest.  Which is a bummer.

No sign of Drive Club is a bit worrying.  

They got that out of the way before E3, so there's nothing to worry about.

To me, when you're not showing a supposed flagship game that's shipping this year at your game press conference, and spend time on other dumb numbers, prototype hardware and movies, that's not a good sign of confidence in it.  My opinion.

Wonder what the release dates are for Forza Horizon and Drive Club, Forza now having day/night and weather.

Forza Horizon 2 is September 30, Driveclub is October 7th.

Could Nintendo steal this E3 with a Mario or Zelda announcement?  I liked MS event more than what Sony is putting on, mostly due to more actual gameplay shown.

Yeah, hard to know.  Microsoft definitely had a much better paced presentation and did it all about the games.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 10, 2014, 02:28:31 AM
Yeah, in addition to not going between games smoothly, Sony tends to just go on too long.  Let's talk about numbers.  Let's bring on some guy you've never heard of.
