Quote from: EngineNo9 on April 16, 2017, 08:58:23 PM

Personally I'm interested in too many things.  We'll see what I actually get, especially if the Steam Spring Sale happens as well, but right now these are the ones I'm keeping an eye on
- Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop
- Voodoo Vince Remastered
- Flinthook
- Full Throttle Remastered
- The Disney Afternoon Collection
- ATV Renegades

I kind of want them all (maybe not ATV Renegades...), and it is my birthday this week, so...maybe.  slywink

Well, so far I have already caved on Voodoo Vince Remastered, Flinthook and Full Throttle Remastered. 

I think I'll try to stop there, and wait to get the Disney Afternoon Collection at some point when it goes on sale.
42  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2017 - Most Anticipated titles of this calendar year ... on: April 18, 2017, 08:09:17 PM
Clearly there are waaaaay too many games I'm looking forward to.  Here are the ones I find on my Wishlists, which probably still misses some.   icon_confused

Middle Earth: Shadow of War - Monolith/Warner Bros - August 22 - XB1/PS4/PC - loved the first game, here is more with even deeper Nemesis system and bigger world

Crackdown 3 - Microsoft - holiday? - XB1/PC - loved the first Crackdown as a near-superhero open world game, this one has even more potential with destruction

Super Mario Odyssey - Nintendo - holiday? - Switch - it's a new Mario game, giving me a reason to get a Switch

Baja: Edge of Control HD - Rainbow/THQ Nordic - summer? - XB1/PS4/PC - this was one of my favorite racing games of last gen, they are up-rezzing it and fixing some early game progression that was too punishing last time so hopefully more people experience it's offroad madness (the only racing game I've played where you could have point-to-point races that lasted 40 minutes)

State of Decay 2 - Undead Labs/Microsoft - XB1/PC - fall? - I absolutely loved the first SoD and thought it was the perfect single player survival game for me, so I can't wait to see what they do with a sequel on bigger and better hardware

Dirt 4 - Codemasters - XB1/PS4/PC - June 6 - more rally and offroad

Gravel - Milestone - summer? - XB1/PS4/PC - I just love off road racing games, hoping this one is decent

Prey - Arkane/Bethesda - May 5 - XB1/PS4/PC - good scifi game

MXGP3 - June 20 - XB1/PS4/PC - new engine, game looks dope.  Very few motocross games these days, this looks better than ever.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance - XB1/PS4/PC - summer/fall? - the most in-depth medieval RPG ever

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord - TaleWorlds Entertainment - PC - fall? - long awaited followup to a groundbreaking game

Destiny 2 - September 8 - XB1/PS4/PC - Finally coming to PC, hopefully fixing a bunch of the shitty problems with the first one.

Rime - May 31 - XB1/PS4/PC - very pretty, hope it lives up to the visuals

Sea of Thieves - Rare/Microsoft - XB1/PC - fall? - we'll see, but everybody that has gotten hands on with it has great things to say

Red Dead Redemption 2 - Rockstar - XB1/PS4 - fall? - the first one is often considered one of the best games of last generation

Spider-Man - Insomniac/Sony - PS4  - fall? - don't really know much about it yet to be honest, but Insomniac doing another open world game after Sunset Overdrive with the Spider-Man license seems like a recipe for awesome

God of War - Sony - PS4 - fall? - norse gods, badass action, completely reworking the game to fit modern gaming standards of control/camera/etc

Agents of Mayhem - Volition/THQ Nordic - XB1/PS4/PC - August 15 - I love Saints Row, can't wait to see what Volition does with a brand new clean slate

Battlefront 2 - DICE/EA - XB1/PS4/PC - November 10 - supposedly going to fix the lack of content and general mediocrity of the last one.  We'll see...

The Surge - Deck 13/Focus Home Int - XB1/PS4/PC - May 17th - it's like a sci fi Dark Souls

Strafe - Pixel Titans/Devolver Digital - PC - May 9

Ruiner - PC

Absolver - PC

Tokyo 42 - PC

Redeemer - PC

Hob - Runic Games - PC

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - PS4/PC

Tormentor X Punisher - Devolver Digital - PC

Nex Machina - PS4/PC

Tesla vs Lovecraft - 10 Tons - PC - fall ?

44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Voodoo Vince Remastered [Xbox One, PC] on: April 18, 2017, 04:44:14 PM
So, this came out today.  I bought it on the Windows Store so that i could also play it on my XB1 if I wanted to (it's also available on Steam, but no cross play then). 

The download was only 3.0GB, so don't expect a massive Super HD remaster or anything.  It looks and sounds largely as I remember it, even though I'm sure it's way better than it used to be 13 years ago on the original Xbox. 

The only big graphical "huh" moment I had was that there were no dynamic shadows at all in the intro, which was not pre-rendered as far as I could tell.  But once you get into gameplay there are dynamic shadows for the character from every light source and things look better in general. 

From what I've played so far this is very much an early 00's platformer.  Run, jump, double jump, smack things, spin around, collect stuff, open doors, you know the drill.  The camera is a tiny bit fiddly, never quite looking where I would want it to, but you have full control with the right stick so it's not too bad. 

Gameplay wise this is the exact same game as before, with all the ups and downs it had then.  I still find the voodoo powers (when you hurt yourself to hurt enemies around you) to be very underwhelming, which is too bad.  I was hoping that would be the one area that they really concentrated on buffing up.  But those are more rarely used than normal combat and platforming, so it's not a game killer.

The main character's voice seems a bit out of place, like a cartoon character that is disconnected from the world.  But the music is great as always.

Downloading now.  Surprisingly it's only 3GB, but I guess since it was an original Xbox game to begin with that makes a bit of sense. 
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Full Throttle Remastered on: April 18, 2017, 04:04:15 PM
Comes out today, and here is a launch trailer

Sounds like they also redid the music, which is great.  I was afraid that might have aged too much in the last 22 years.  (22 years...eek!   icon_eek)

If you happen to maybe also want this on Xbox One, the Play Anywhere version in the Windows Store is $14.99 right now as well.  Of course that means you don't have it on Steam.

I would probably say to try for #1 if that is what you would be happier with, have more long-term forward movement, and have the support of your fiance.

I completely understand being uncomfortable waiting it out and not going for the sure thing.  I would definitely be struggling with that decision myself.  I just think in the long run that first option seems the better on several fronts so is worth going for it.
55  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Job Advice on: April 15, 2017, 12:15:36 AM
I'm not sure where these jobs would be, but for what it's worth non-competes are not enforceable in lots of places, especially California.

Another question, do you have any dependents, spouse, kids, or anyone else that would be affected if you didn't get the job?

A trailer look at weather conditions in MXGP3

The weather looks decent, conveys dusty to muddy conditions, but more than that something else about this looks incredible to me.  Maybe it's the rider animations, or effects or new physics or something, but the riding looks like the most realistic I've seen in a motocross game.

The first expansion called Narco Road comes out next Tuesday the 18th if you have the Season Pass, or the 25th if you plan on buying it solo:

Quote
New targets, new vehicles, and a new approach to taking down the cartel are all coming soon in the Narco Road expansion for Ghost Recon Wildlands. In order to dismantle a smuggling ring led by the elusive El Invisible, you and your squad will have to infiltrate the gangs under his control and earn the respect of three new bosses. Each boss commands a gang with its own identity, including the thrill-seeking Kamikazes, the muscle car-loving Jinetes Locos, and the Santa Muerte-obsessed Death Riders.

You’ll take on more than 15 new campaign missions, as well as four new types of side missions and racing challenges, all with the goal of earning fame and followers. The more followers you acquire, the more you’ll ingratiate yourself with the gang bosses, and the closer you’ll get to your goal. Along the way, you’ll want to get comfortable with the new vehicles Narco Road is bringing to Bolivia. Muscle cars with nitro boosts, planes built for acrobatic flight, big chopper bikes, and hulking monster trucks will all be available for you to use as you please.

In addition to these four new vehicles types, Narco Road will introduce four outfits and nine weapons when it launches for season pass holders across all platforms on April 18 (or individual purchase for owners of the standard and deluxe versions of Ghost Recon Wildlands on April 25 for $14.99).

And some free content in an update this week as well:
Quote
Narco Road will be preceded by a free title update – April 12 for consoles and April 14 for PC – that will introduce live season challenges and new rewards to Wildlands. The first themed-season, “The Rise and Fall of Unidad,” will challenge players to target Unidad operations. The challenges for the first season will refresh every Wednesday for six weeks, and reward players with up to three unique rewards per week.

Aah, I see.  That's probably true as well.  I guess I just come from an area with a high percentage of Scandinavian immigrants and I'm something like 3/4 Norwegian, so I had at least some cursory exposure to and interest in Norse mythology outside of comics (in fact I never actually read the Thor comics back in my comic reading days).

Not to just post marketing junk, but I saw this video of IGN unboxing the $130 Collector's Edition and was surprised to see the big/little warhammer.  Looks cool, but smaller than I expected from the preview, and a nice addition to the cloth banners if you're a big 40k fan I guess.

FYI, this is also on Xbox One.

I have to say that I had the opposite reaction to the name and what they had been presenting beforehand.  I assumed it was trading on some sort of titillation and/or shock value.

Hearing that it's a murder mystery does kind of intrigue me, but not enough to jump in.

I'm pretty sure that if you quizzed most non-comics enthusiasts about Heimdall, you'd get a good response for bombing that city back to the Stone Age.

Your wording is confusing but I'm assuming you are saying that you would get some sort of backwards racist statements from some people?  I'm sure you would. 

But just because some racist assholes agree with a sentiment doesn't make that sentiment racist or wrong in itself.

Sure, comics get weird.  But that wasn't Thor.  That was another character of another race from another part of the universe/galaxy/duckoplex that fought Thor and took his hammer for a bit.  

Idris Alba is literally supposed to be Heimdall, a well known Norse god.

Infamous : Second Son was one of the few exclusives I bought the PS4 for. Played it front-to-back, when I own a PS4 again (it'll happen, maybe) I'd like to play the evil side through.

I think from what I remember reading/hearing, the evil side was the one part of that game that wasn't very well fleshed out.  At least not as much as the previous games.

Interesting, so they are trying to bring some of Planet Hulk into this one?  I'm all for that.  I could watch Hulk smash some fools all day long.

On the other hand, despite how politically incorrect it may be, I continue to be mildly annoyed by their broadening the Norse gods and people to be anything other than tall, blonde, whiteys.  I love Idris Alba, and I know it's a minor point overall, but as sick as I am of Hollywood's whitewashing of every other movie this is the one place where it was practically required and they felt like they had to change it up.

I played a lot of games for a little bit of time, most notably Slime-san that I got in the Humble Monthly.  Really fun platformer up until the point where they start killing you for moving slowly. 

The most that I focused on anything was a few hours with Feral Fury thanks to the generosity of Blackjack.  A fun and well polished little rogue-lite twin-stick shooter.   thumbsup

Why hasn't there been a God of War for the PS4?
Because it's coming later this year or next year, and it looks amazing, and a change in direction from the previous games.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJ_GCPaKywg

Yeah, this change in direction is enough to get me back on board with enthusiasm, and I've been a big critic of their semi-static cameras and quick-time events since the start.

I enjoyed Infamous: Second Son despite wishing it was a bit more melee-focused.  It looked great even at launch, so I imagine it would be just as stellar on a Pro.

Bloodborne was a good game, and lots of people loved it.  I think I prefer the slower Dark Souls games in some ways, but well worth a look.  And Nioh is supposed to be a great choice for similar gameplay in a new setting.

Oh, and you didn't mention Dragon Quest Builders, which is a bit like a third person Minecraft with an actual world and some light RPG questing.  Might not have staying power, but fun if you get it on sale.

And there was Tearaway Unfolded, but you may not want that if you're not into platforming at all.

I was a Kickstarter backer of Yooka-Laylee so I already have that pre-downloaded and ready for release.

I also played the beta of Mr. Shifty and that was enough to convince me I wanted in on more of that!

Very interested to see what comes of The Signal From Tölva and The Wild Eternal, but will be waiting for reviews.

Here is a really great interview with Nicky Grist (Colin McRae's co-driver and therefore the "voice" of most of the Codemasters rally games) about Colin's fearlessness.   icon_biggrin thumbsup

Oh, and if you wanted more big-budget, maybe something like Doom?  Or even the last Wolfenstein.  Relatively short campaigns but very fun and high quality.
