Did anybody order this from the Microsoft Store for the $10 store credit? I still haven't seen any emails or codes or anything on how to redeem the credit.

When I've done that in the past I think I got an email a few weeks later with a code to redeem.

Iím glad itís in production but it also makes me a bit worried.  Isnít this about the 3rd or 4th game Doublefine has in production right now?  As far as I know they arenít a very big studio, wouldnít it be better to, you know, finish a game before you start another one?

I think their studio has enough people for up to 4 small projects to be in production at a time.  Games at different points of development don't need the same amount of people throughout, so having some starting while others are in full production or winding down is a good thing and helps eliminate cycles of layoffs.

I wouldn't expect this one any time soon, as apparently they have gone "back to the drawing board" with it. 
44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Costume Quest 2 Announced on: March 11, 2014, 03:47:19 PM
They had a funny announcement video as usual for Double Fine these days.

Sadly it seems like they won't have voice overs for this game.  I thought the first one was cute but would have been improved immensely by good VO.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 11, 2014, 03:00:54 AM
I find it funny that people won't buy Titanfally because it's multiplayer-only.  I can understand the preference for playing a single player game (I'm usually in that camp), but saying that a multiplayer game doesn't have enough meat without single player is silly.  I find it easy to play a multiplayer game like Battlefield many, many times longer than I can put up with their mediocre single player.

I remember buying the first Starsiege: Tribes 15 years ago as my first multiplayer-only game and that felt risky, but these days I'm surprised more games don't do it.

It isn't quite as good but Lego Marvel Superheroes has scratched that same itch since we finished Lego City.  So when you have finished Undercover you should look into it.

I agree, but I think Lego City leagues better than Lego Marvel. The only thing Lego Marvel does better is the co-op. City Underground has a better story, better more coherent world, better writing, and more varied missions. It is shame that they couldn't go back to that well for both Lego Marvel and Lego Movie, both of those feel cashed in compared to Lego City. I would love for Nintendo to fund another Lego Unique game like Undercover.

I was sure to mention that LCU was the reason I bought a Wii U when I filled out their post-purchase registration questionnaire.  I doubt it has any effect, but a small part of me hopes enough people say that to drive them to fund another game like it.

You PC players enjoy being tethered to your 24" monitor while the Xboners chill on the couch with a beer in front of their 60" TVs.  icon_twisted
Will do! Enjoy aiming with a controller and playing at a much lower resolution stretched over a much bigger screen.  icon_razz

What Lordnine said.  Tongue  Not to mention getting it for $15 cheaper through GMG.

So are most of us getting it for the XB1?

I'm going to be playing it on the PC.

Cool, the first Incredible Adventure of Van Helsing was much more fun that I expected it to be.  Nice to see that they have several classes in this one.

Does the XB1 continue downloading things after you turn it off?  Or do you have to turn it off in a specific way to make that happen?

If you have the Instant On (sleep) power mode selected then it should continue downloading after you shut it down.  If you have the Energy Saver it apparently won't.

I know with the 360 you had to press and hold the power button to get it to keep downloading.

I never had to do that, I just shut it off from the controller and it finished downloading anything active as long as I had the appropriate setting turned on.

Diablo 3, EDF 2025 and maybe some other things.

Yup, played a bit more D3 on Satuday and EDF on Sunday.  Not really anything else, though.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/10) on: March 10, 2014, 06:59:49 AM
I've got Titanfall preloaded on my PC. 

Interested in Dark Souls 2, but probably waiting on a cheap deal for the PC version.  Yoshi could be cool, but it will also have to wait.
53  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: March 10, 2014, 04:53:16 AM
I watched Best Man Down and surprisingly enjoyed it.  I had low expectations, and with Tyler Labine and Justin Long I expected a dumb buddy comedy but it was more of a touching, heartfelt friendship thing.  With some Tyler Labine silliness at times.

Aww, I was hoping this was along the lines of Circus Maximus on the original Xbox.  Glad you're enjoying it, though!

I'm trying to think what my next Xbox One game is going to be.  I'm getting Titanfall on the PC, so that's not one that applies for me.  What else is coming up soonish?

Those aren't skins, they are different types of titans: the Atlas, the Ogre and the Stryder.  They each perform differently.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So I bought a Wii U on: March 07, 2014, 08:46:56 PM
I bought a Wii U for myself so I could play LEGO City Undercover.  And it was worth it even before these other great games came out.  smile

If you sign up for the Green Man Gaming newsletter they will send you a $10 off coupon for Titanfall.  Best discount I've seen if you are in North America.

When I got mine several weeks back it was 20% ($12) off, but obviously that coupon is no longer valid.

I got my key to preload from GMG, which is nice.  Plenty of time to download and install that 50 gigs I guess.  smile
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: March 07, 2014, 06:08:07 PM
Hmm, I'm pretty sure I didn't see an option for Game Suspending, but maybe I missed it. 
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: March 07, 2014, 04:52:38 PM
When you say Quick Start do you mean the Instant On power feature?  If so, I have that on and haven't had any problems.  But I certainly never enabled any beta game suspend features and can't find anything about that in the Settings now.

Gah, that sucks Hepcat.  Hopefully you either get your key or a refund soon.

For anyone still looking, for the next day you can get it for $45 through GreenManGaming, which is reputable:  http://blog.playfire.com/2014/03/25-off-south-park-stick-of-truth.html

EDIT: actually, it looks like that link has changed since I last looked at it.  In North America you now only get $13 in credit rather than the 25% off.  Huh.
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 05, 2014, 10:49:07 PM
I'm just surprised that EA wanted to pay licensing fees for each of those old games that they don't own.

At first I thought they were going the route of "forgot to set it on Defend", slightly disappointed it ended up as it did.

I was excited about playing this again, until I had tons of rubberbanding and got disconnected from the servers a couple times yesterday.  Nothing worse than almost fully exploring an outdoor area just to get disconnected and have none of the map uncovered anymore.  Except to have it happen twice.

Back on the shelf for you, shitty online game I just want to play by myself.

PC, Mac and Linux on that date as well.
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: March 02, 2014, 02:14:48 AM
Playing this again for the first time since shortly after launch, and I have to say I'm actually enjoying myself now.  Got some decent drops for my barbarian in the few hours I played today. 

I still miss putting points into stats and upgrades, but I suppose that won't ever change in this game.

There are also still moments of lag spike where my inputs get ignored and then I'm warped back several seconds, and that is always disconcerting.  I wish they just had a pure offline mode. 
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 2/28/14 on: March 01, 2014, 04:06:36 AM
EDF2025 and possibly re-installing Diablo 3.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Carmageddon Reincarnation on: February 28, 2014, 05:03:44 PM
It looks like this game will be getting a Steam Early Access alpha release next month, on March 27th, with Kickstarter backers getting in a couple weeks earlier than that. 

They've also put out this vehicle damage tech video (usual disclaimer of pre-alpha, not final, blah blah blah).

I may have to finally reinstall this and give it a fair shake.  I barely played it when it first came out; it just didn't grab me at all, partially because of the poor loot balance.  Not to mention server troubles in my single player game...   disgust
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Xbox One] Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on: February 27, 2014, 06:06:11 PM
Is anybody playing this on the PC?  I didn't realize this was only a $30 game, and I'm kind of tempted to give it a try, but I tend to prefer PC for shooters.

EDIT: Nevermind.  I see even though it's on Origin it's still "Coming Spring 2014".  Bleh.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hawken on: February 27, 2014, 05:14:04 PM
The Nemesis bundle is a way better deal overall, but they each have unique mechs.  Hawken is a sort of a class-based shooter, so a lot of the game is about finding the type of mech that you enjoy the most or play best in different situations, and that can be easier with 9 mechs than 3.  The bonus currencies in the Nemesis are also very useful for kitting out other parts of a mech right away, or unlocking alternate weapons.

In the Prosk Starter you have a sniper, a cloaking stealthy assassin and a beefy assault/defense type.  The Nemesis has a range of classes from healer, sniper, suppression fire, aggressive front line, long range support, and good all-around assault.

Either way, there are also 3 rotating test drive classes of mech every week as well, so you can try out others for free over time to see if you like them.

My personal favorite classes would probably be the Berserker, Technician, Rocketeer and Vanguard (and the starter mech everybody gets).  But the Sharpshooter is one of the most popular, and I know guys who almost exclusively play Infiltrator.

highlights?

Stick it to the man - $7.49

I've really enjoyed what I have played of this one so far.  Frankly, it's more what I expected from "a new Tim Shafer adventure game" than what I got out of Broken Age.  Certainly more humor in it.
