Yep, i got mine!  smile  I find it funny that they released a new Hulkbuster costume for Iron Man to match the movie one, when they already had  Hulkbuster one in there, but I guess they look pretty different.  I have 3 Hulk costumes that look even less different than those, heh.

Also, there's a new code for a 4-hour boost, just enter "ULTRON" in their code redeemer.

It was also fun just to log in and get my boatload of achievements unlocking, and an inventory of rewards from them.   thumbsup

Yeah, I hope that PS4 Ratchet and Clank is cool, I can't wait to see some info on it.

In the meantime, Yooka-Laylee's Kickstarter has gone over 1 million pounds ($1.6m US at this point) so they've completed all of their original stretch goals including simultaneous release on consoles. 

They also added a couple new stretch goals, but thankfully the new goals are nothing big, so they're not biting off much more than they could already chew.

Definitely more Dirt Rally, I need to dig further into the career and team stuff.  And maybe more Kaiju-a-GoGo since they fixed a few things; despite frustrations and not thinking it's really ready for full release I still enjoy it.

I might have to fire up Marvel Heroes for some Ultron action myself.  smile
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Yooka-Laylee (colorful 3D platformer, spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie) on: May 01, 2015, 09:41:09 PM
A bunch of ex-Rare developers have launched their Kickstarter for Yooka-Laylee, a spiritual successor to the old school 3D platforming of Banjo-Kazooie. 

They just launched today and are already over 300% of their goal, so I think this one will make it.  slywink

I'm not as fond of these characters as I was of the bear and bird (or at least the bear), but I could definitely go for some of that platforming action that has been missing the last few years.  I think bringing back their old composers also really helps, that music set the mood for the old games.

Achievements come today! Finally time to play again.

Sweet!  That feature has been "coming soon" since before I even started playing.  smile  Might be a good reason for me to go back to it.

Also, if you log in this Saturday, May 2nd you'll get a free Iron Man Mark 43 costume.    They also have 50% bonus XP for all Avengers played until the end of May, I think.  They tend to do plenty of other big things for events, so I imagine starting Friday there will be more event madness.

Oh, and in case you weren't aware, they frequently do other free code giveaways, some of which are still active.  I usually check this site regularly for new ones: http://orcz.com/Marvel_Heroes:_Promo_Codes  Just copy the code and go to www.marvelheroes.com, sign in and then Home->Redeem Key.

49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] DiRT Rally - new Codemasters racing game in Steam Early Access on: April 29, 2015, 06:24:48 AM
I played for about an hour and a half tonight and so far my impressions are: I'm terrible at this, and it is great!    icon_biggrin

Tracks are a bit narrower than usual Dirt tracks, and they seem longer as well but that may be due to the fact you can only afford a 60's rally car when you start the career so you're moving quite slow overall.  A track that took me over 7 minutes in a 60's car was 4:30 in a 2010's Ford Fiesta.  The cars definitely feel a bit better on the road to me, really feeling connected and grippy (or lacking grip, as the case may be) and less arcade-y.  I wouldn't call it the best rally simulation ever, but it's pretty damn fun.

I chose the Lancia Fulvia HF for my first career car and I competed in two four-race rallies with it.  You can repair your car in between the second and third race in a rally.  You get 30 minutes to repair, or you can go up to 45 minutes with penalties.  Let's just say that 30 minutes did not even come close to repairing the damage I had done in the first copraces.  It didn't even fix just my radiator.   

In my second rally, I blew a tire halfway through the second race so I had to finish that race on the rim (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=434046009).  I had also smashed my radiator pretty hard into a rock, so I had to split my repair time between wheels and radiator, even though the radiator was much worse off.  In the end, I ended up smacking a tree on the final stretch of the 4th race and got knocked out of the rally altogether.  I lost $5 grand to repairs even with my minimal earnings, so I've got to be a bit more careful.  icon_redface

I also did one custom race in a 2010's Ford Fiesta just to compare the feel and race times.  Definitely faster, definitely harder to keep on the road at times due to higher speeds, but also much better grip with the all wheel drive. 

Anyway, if you're one of those people who has bemoaned Codies taking Dirt more and more into dudebro territory, and wished they would go back to the roots of Colin McRae, I definitely suggest you check this out.  I think it's worth it just to send a message with your wallet that people want these games.   thumbsup
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mad Max - open world game from Avalanche on: April 28, 2015, 04:13:46 PM
I searched around and it looked like we didn't have a thread for the upcoming Mad Max game yet. 

This one is being made by Avalanche Sweden, the guys who made Just Cause 1 & 2, and it should be out in September (Just Cause 3 is being made by a new Avalanche New York team).

They released the first gameplay trailer last week, a lenghty 4 minute explanation of the gameplay.  I'm looking forward to it!   thumbsup  I like the focus on building your own custom Magnum Opus car.

It was also a Game Informer monthly feature, so they've got a bunch of articles and stuff at this hub: http://www.gameinformer.com/p/madmax.aspx
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Just Cause 3 on: April 28, 2015, 04:06:42 PM
They have released the first gameplay trailer and also announced it will be arriving Holiday 2015. 

And in case you missed it, it was the cover story on Game Informer a couple months ago so they had a bunch of screenshots, articles, interviews, etc: http://www.gameinformer.com/p/justcause3.aspx

More Lords of the Fallen probably.  And I'm sure a bit of Rocksmith 2014 like usual. 

And I want to give a bit more time to Kaiju-a-Go-Go before I write it off entirely.

I played a lot of Kaiju-a-GoGo.  I don't think it's really ready, but I enjoy the theme/concept enough to keep me entertained in between frustration and annoyance.

I tried to get back into Lords of the Fallen, but I'm stuck on another boss.  I think that might be it for me, too had to get back in the groove.

I was going to wait for impressions but I figured I know I'd be getting it sooner or later, so I bought it already.   icon_redface 

Whoops, I was just about to post that a number of folks are reporting that they aren't getting the co-driver audio or pace notes, so it might be better to wait a few days... but thanks for stepping up and taking one for the team thumbsup

Yeah, I guess those are pretty minor bugs that are bound to be ironed out fairly quickly in the grand scheme of things.  It may be a few days before I even feel like playing when I get home from work. 

Either way, I don't mind using a little of my wallet to send the message that this is a game I support.  So long as they don't totally screw the pooch.

I'm really curious if this means they'll be splitting off "DiRT Offroad" or something for the other non-rally aspects.  I actually enjoyed a lot of the trophy truck, buggie and rally raid type races.  I just wanted them to drop the dudebro aspects that really crept into 2 and 3 (and Showdown).
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] DiRT Rally - new Codemasters racing game in Steam Early Access on: April 27, 2015, 06:08:14 PM
Yeah, I saw this pop up when I launched Steam this morning and it was quite a surprise.  Their Twitter account has certainly been teasing more rally-focused stuff for a while, but there was no hints that they'd be launching so soon, or in Early Access.

I was going to wait for impressions but I figured I know I'd be getting it sooner or later, so I bought it already.   icon_redface  This is going to be a busy week at work but I'll try to give it a whirl sometime this week and see how it goes.

I guess I get the second part of Broken Age finally.

And it looks like Codemasters has launched DiRT Rally in a surprised Early Access move, so I'll probably get that too.

This game looks pretty cool.  I don't tend to play with a set group of people, though, so I'm not sure how much longevity it would have for me.  Nice that it at least has single player (with bots, I'm assuming?).

Is there any game mode beyond the wave-based horde style mode?

Kaiju-A-Go-Go pc.

Yeah, I was an Indie Go Go backer so I got that as well.  Seemed really shallow for the little bit I played last night, but then it crashed and I quit playing so it might get better.

It's also not an early access game but they have two big "Coming Soon" banners for the second and third monsters, which is a bit off-putting.

Hmm everything seems more difficult since patch.  Monsters and bosses are even doing new moves I didn't see before update.

One of two things, either you had experienced the memory leak bug, or you just got insight to a gameplay altering level, though that only effects normal enemy abilities and not bosses.

Or they also silently changed how much insight it takes to get certain effects.

Well, the difference with the Echo is that it still a limited-availability, invite-only beta device for early adopters.  It has not been fully launched into open availability yet

I imagine they might even be doing smaller production runs and potentially tweaking hardware while they are tracking how it is being used and improving the software side of things.

FWIW, my parents have one and really like it.  They use it for music, to do lists, shopping lists, morning news briefs, etc.  I don't think there is enough functionality for me to want one, but they have been doing regular updates to it so it may get there by the time it's fully released.

I picked up Lords of the Fallen to give that a try and see how it compares to Dark Souls 2 and Bloodborne.

I'm sure I'll play more Rocksmith 2014 and probably another skirmish or two in War for the Overworld.

I spent lots of time with Lords of the Fallen and an hour or two with Rocksmith 2014, but no time for anything else.

68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] Lords of the Fallen on: April 20, 2015, 06:02:09 AM
I just beat the third boss today, which felt pretty good. 

I died several times (again), but not as many as the second boss.  After several deaths I went back and explored the rest of the level and found a thing I had missed that let me get what's-her-name's dagger.  With that thing I destroyed the boss pretty quickly.  Unfortunately I gave it back to her in exchange for a key to the catacombs so now I'm back to the fist weapons I stole off a statue.

Oh, for anybody that was interested in getting this on PS4, it was part of this weekend's PSN Flash Sale for $24.  Not sure how long that lasts.
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] Lords of the Fallen on: April 18, 2015, 11:03:49 PM
Also, I think I've now been fighting this boss for the better part of 3 hours.  frown

EDIT: Yes!  Finally!!  That son of a bitch can burn in hell!!!  Whew!

And yet, for some reason this is still more compelling to me than Bloodborne was.   icon_confused
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] Lords of the Fallen on: April 18, 2015, 11:03:06 PM
Yeah, thanks.  I guess I'm well aware of how to attack him, but I just don't do enough damage and I take so much damage that it's a looong war of attrition that I'm constantly losing.  It takes so long and I only have 3 health potions so I just can't last long enough to finish the battle.

I've gotten him down to about 1/8 of his health now, but as soon as he spawns the two helpers I'm almost guaranteed to take some damage trying to rush kill them.

I would love to "spam" my gauntlet, but I can only get off one shot before it needs to recharge.  After that first shot I can get a second shot after a 5-10 seconds, but then it's tapped out and takes a long time to recharge enough for another shot.
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] Lords of the Fallen on: April 18, 2015, 09:30:38 PM
I mentioned in the Weekend Playlist thread that I've been playing this on the Xbox One and so far I'm liking it.

I really like the idea of the XP combo multiplier, but I've never been brave enough to stick it out too long (or I ended up dying). 

I've reached the second boss (the Commander) now and man am I ever dying a lot.  I've probably been fighting him for an hour and I can barely get him below half way before I die.  And of course once he's past half way he spawns two helpers instead of one, so it just gets harder.  Cripes!    icon_mad

Of course I keep earning more XP from those helpers every time I try, which means each time I die I'm leaving more and more XP behind as well.  That makes it harder to just quit and try to go grind elsewhere as well, even though time-wise it would probably make more sense.

Did you get Lords of the Fallen on the PS4 or the PC?  I've heard the PC version looks and runs a lot better than the console versions, even on a mid-range rig.

-Autistic Angel

I actually went the Xbox One route, heh.  I have all platforms and even though I know the Xbone was the "lesser" of these I got a deal on it and that's where I tend to prefer to play anyway because of it's controller (and I needed something for playing away from my PC at times). 

I've played a few hours and so far I have no real problems with it at all.  There have been a few times where framerate drops, but that's mostly in cut scene transitions and hasn't impacted me much.  I know they've patched it significantly since launch

It feels a lot more like Dark Souls 2 than Bloodborne, to me.  I started as the Warrior type but he felt super slow and clunky so I changed to using the Rogue armor and weapons after I found them (you find all the stuff for the other two classes fairly quickly) and I like it even more. 

I actually like the game so far.  I enjoyed DS2 and this seems similar to that with the addition of useful tooltips and some friendlier stuff.  You can choose whether using a fire just saves your progress or saves your progress and resets health and potions (and enemies), so you can actually save and quit without resetting your souls combo multiplier.  Oh, yeah, you get more "souls" XP from every enemy the longer you wait to bank them, which is a cool mix on that system. 

It's still full of plenty of dying and frustration, though, so don't expect that to be gone or anything.

I don't want the "everything is awesome and I am unstoppable" Superman, because that guy is boring as shit.  If they're taking cues from The Dark Knight Returns then I'm all for it. 

Of course, having said that, the fact that they've delayed this from a summer release and have now relegated it to March of 2016 gives me worry.
