Well I'm very interested. WWI is a time period that you hardly ever see in gaming.

Because warfare sucked back then.  The guns sucked, the variety sucked...everything was primitive trench warfare.

The trailer pretty clearly shows this isn't some WWI sim. More like WWI as envisioned by Michael Bay.

They have said it's no alternate history, they're sticking with what was there.  Which means there are none of the things that make most shooters enjoyable like variable scopes, red dot sights, holo sights, reflex sights, lots of automatic weapons. 

They can make the trailer look as bombastic as they want, shooting crappy guns via iron sights is no fun for me.

So I guess now I am officially over caring about Battlefield.  As if they hadn't been trying hard enough to run the franchise into the ground the last few years.
44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4] Shadwen - stealth action from Frozenbyte on: May 06, 2016, 07:22:20 PM
Yeah, I tried the demo and it's interesting but I don't know that I want to play it for real. 

The main hook seems to be almost like SuperHot in that the world pauses entirely when you are not moving.  This is nice so you can do things like jump *autopause* judge where to shoot your grappling hook while in mid-air, and then swing.

Well, I reinstalled Skyrim to go back and play through it all again with the DLC and some mods, since I can't seem to find anything else to hold my interest.  We'll see how long that lasts.

I also have to finish Transformers: Devestation.  And maybe play more Dark Souls 3.  And who knows what else...
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC,XB1,PS4] MXGP 2 - The Official Motocross Videogame on: May 06, 2016, 04:17:18 PM
It looks like this is continuing to get pretty good reviews on Steam (Mostly Positive with 75%), so I think I will get it on Xbone when that version hits next month.

They also just released 2 new tracks as DLC, Agueda and Bastogne with a video that makes them look a lot like every other dirt track, haha. But from what people say the tracks in this one are a big improvement in design over the first MXGP.
47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC/PS4] Shadwen - stealth action from Frozenbyte on: May 05, 2016, 10:54:41 PM
From the makers of the Trine games it kind of looks like they are taking some of their physics-based action platforming and mixing it with stealth for their new game Shadwen.

The game is supposed to release on PC/Mac/Linux and PS4 on May 17th.  I hope it's good, but after the turmoil of Trine 3 not really being complete on launch I'll be waiting for reviews at least.

Release trailer that I think doesn't make the game look as cool as some of their earlier videos.

49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War III on: May 03, 2016, 04:14:14 PM
This was just announced today as a new game coming from Relic and Sega.  Should be pretty good given their past reputation with the Dawn of War and Company of Heroes games.

Cinematic announcement trailer

The things of note so far seem to be the giant war machines and the fact that the campaign will have 3 factions (Space Marines, Orcs and Eldar).

51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Typing program for 10 yr old....not Typing of the Dead on: April 30, 2016, 04:55:57 PM
I don't know if you are still looking for more typing games, but there have been a couple released on Steam recently that might be interesting if they are a bit experienced and you want something more entertaining to keep them practicing. 

Typefighters is a competitive typing game with several game modes.  And it's only $2, so even if you don't use it a ton it might be fun.  Giant Bomb did a Quick Look video of it if you are curious.

And then Epistory is more of an action adventure game where you have to type to attack enemies.  AnotherQuick Look video if it helps.

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered also has really good reviews and may be a bit more straight forward typing game.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 4/29/16 edition on: April 30, 2016, 02:56:49 AM
I'm still playing Far Cry Primal now with the Survival mode active and it's pretty fun.

I might also get back to Transformers: Devestation on XB1.

Edit: also I see there is another thread for this weekend of playing.

That really kind of annoys me.  I know it shouldn't and it is silly to be annoyed but I was looking forward to Zelda sometime this fall and now I have to wait a year.

Yeah, I have to agree.  I knew to expect it but it still annoys me and devalues the Wii U I've been trying to support.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nioh - Team Ninja action RPG on: April 26, 2016, 05:53:44 PM
Apparently there is a demo for this up on the PS4 until May 5.  Anybody try it out?

57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS4 upgrade - Neo on: April 22, 2016, 12:37:08 AM
Well, they still have the supposedly-coming-out HoloLens thing, which would make sense if it is timed to require these performance add-ons.

I don't want to be "that guy", but I never got into his music at all and didn't understand the love.  But still a shame since I know he was very influential in his quirky way.

Not sure why MS is on board, though.

Because they have to directly compete with Sony and the PS4?  They can't become viewed as even more of the "underpowered" console that nobody wants.  And if they do it with modular upgrades like it seems they might it could even be better for existing customers than the PS4 full-purchase option.
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/PC/Ps4] Mirrors Edge 2 on: April 21, 2016, 05:57:53 PM
I had been excited about this but then I watched the Giant Bomb Unfinished video for this and it really convinced me not to get it. 

It seems like they didn't really learn many lessons from the first game or from the improvements that something like Dying Light which had great first person parkour.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: April 21, 2016, 05:49:26 PM
I got a big survey in email about this game today.  I ended up filling out all 3 parts (the second two parts were optional).  It would be interesting to see the accumulated results.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/17/16) on: April 21, 2016, 05:47:50 PM
I didn't realize this Star Fox was actually made by Platinum Games.  Those guys must have a bunch of teams at this point with as many different games they release.
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Ratchet and Clank on: April 20, 2016, 03:59:27 PM
That's one big difference between the XB1 and PS4.  The XB1 tells you it's Ready to Play but still shows how much is left to be downloaded or installed so you can make an informed choice to wait if you want.
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS4 upgrade - Neo on: April 19, 2016, 08:09:54 PM
At least link to the original story at Giant Bomb to give them some credit.

I might upgrade if it means I'll get faster performance and true 1080p display, but I don't have a 4k TV and don't plan on buying one for the forseeable future so don't care about that part.

67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Dirty Bomb by Splash Damage now on Steam for beta on: April 19, 2016, 02:16:49 PM
Yeah, I have played quite a bit of this off and on and I really enjoy it when I do.  My biggest problem is that I enjoy the game mode that only has 2 maps so those become very repetitive.

As usual I'm also not a fan of their card/loadout system, but at least they aren't consumables.

Apparently this is doing really well.  No actual numbers yet but Bandai Namco announced Dark Souls 3 has been breaking records for the most successful day-one launch and has become the fastest selling Bandai Namco title ever.

So how long would you say you have to play before you really start to "get it"?  Or get to the "good stuff" with more options?

I laughed, and I laughed.  nod

Well, since nobody answered my question I decided to just get a refund while I still could.  Oh well, no big loss.

Question - can't remember but is there a way that you can compare an item against what you have equipped BEFORE you actually buy it?
Can't seem to figure that one out.

I haven't seen this either, and it seems like a basic function that's been overlooked.

I gave it a try. The situations are interesting, although I've gotten too old to enjoy running a scenario over and over again just to get a few more points. And I remembered why I had given up on MP... sitting for a long time in damn lobbies waiting for a match to start and then dying a few seconds in.
Yeah, I had a lot of fun in the first few Situations, but then quickly lost interest when I started failing them and realized they wanted me to get enough points to buy six operatives...

Anyone remember Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising by NovaLogic? That was a great MP game. Thirty or more people on a side, matches that could last hours, huge maps... sadly there were so many cheaters on it after a few months it wasn't worth playing.

Yes!  Joint Ops was great fun back in the day!  These days Battlefield is about as close as you can get to that sort of long term big match chaos.

a lot changed, but not a lot that matters yet.

There's been some pretty significant changes for me.  Since the patch dropped on Tuesday I've tripled the number of High End Division Tech materials I have.  That is to I've gotten twice as much since the patch came out as I collected the entire time from the release of the game until the patch.  My new bottleneck is Dark Zone funds.  I'm 6 ranks shy of 50 and by the time I get there, I'm still not going to have enough DZ funds to buy of the DZ 50 blueprints (mostly I want the iLevel 32 Gear Mods).  In fact, I just spent 45 minutes in the DZ killing level 32 yellows and purples, and AFAICT I earned no DZ bucks at all (I jotted down the amount I started with, and assuming I wrote it down correctly, when I left the DZ I had exactly the same amount), I did get a DZ key though, so that's worth 1000 DZ bucks next time I run into a chest. 

I already have Cookie Clicker running in a tab, I don't need a game that requires my focus for the same thing.  slywink

I also only played the betas, but I intend to play without a headset.

Of course, after the 14GB download and install via Steam, trying to run it makes Uplay pop up and that requires a CD Key.   retard  They're looking into it, but damn...
