41  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC,XB1,PS4] Dark Souls III on: April 11, 2016, 08:24:32 PM
So this comes out in the west today.  It actually looks like it unlocks on Steam at 3pm PST today, for some reason.

Apparently the patch that came out the other day improved performance significantly and fixed several bugs that were seen in review copies, so that's good to hear.

Anybody jumping in for more masochistic action RPG-ness?

I think it's a sad statement on my life that I think those are some great Harry Potters.

I guess both Dark Souls III and Ratchet & Clank.  Like I really needed to throw more games on my pile...

In the tradition of Halo and Fable, I'm expecting Microsoft to destroy the magic of the Gears series with this installment. Already it looks more generic than the original series.

Didn't that already basically happen with Judgement?

Ah, I'm actually in Wisconsin now and totally forgot about this.

Ah, ok, well it's good to know you were at least getting good framerates despite the overheating card.  I'll probably still wait for a patch or sale to see how it develops.
47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC,XB1,PS4] MXGP 2 - The Official Motocross Videogame on: April 07, 2016, 08:38:19 PM
Thanks for taking the bullet, Jz!  But really sad to hear it ran so poorly for you.  I only have a 760 GTX so would probably get even worse performance than you did on a 780.

I think it may be time for me to wait for the console version or a patch to see how things develop.  Milestone is not known for much post-release support.
48  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC,XB1,PS4] MXGP 2 - The Official Motocross Videogame on: April 07, 2016, 04:37:24 PM
Oh, and apparently there will be a demo coming soon:

We are glad to announce that MXGP 2 demo will be available on PS4 from April 14 and on Xbox One and PC from April 21

Although I'm unsure if the console demos will be in the US or Europe only for now.

But I see that Jztemple already has the game on Steam, so hopefully he can give us some impressions soon.  slywink
49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC,XB1,PS4] MXGP 2 - The Official Motocross Videogame on: April 07, 2016, 03:30:43 PM
Apparently this launched on Steam today!  I thought it didn't come out until June because that's when the XB1 and PS4 versions launch (in the US, at least).

Here is a launch trailer which makes it look better than the last one.

I had planned to pick this up on XB1 this summer, but now I'm tempted to just get the Steam version again even though I have too much to already play...

53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: April 05, 2016, 04:34:58 PM
I don't know why, but this game kind of bores the shit out of me.  When I'm actually playing nothing is that bad, and I have some fun, but I always lose interest after like an hour and have no desire to go back and play.  It just feels like nothing really matters for some reason.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, Xbox One] DiRT Rally - new Codemasters racing game on: April 05, 2016, 03:35:03 PM
So it looks like there is a 17.3 GB patch for the Steam version, bringing it to version 1.1 in line with the consoles that are releasing.

This is probably my favorite patch note, but the rest are in the spoiler since it's huge:
•   Graphics – Crowd members in Sweden are now correctly dressed at all times.   icon_biggrin

Spoiler for Hiden:
WELCOME! Today’s the day our DiRT family gets bigger – so hello console players! Strap yourselves in, because it’s going to be a thrilling ride.  And PC players, welcome to DiRT Rally 1.1 – the new content is unbelievably good fun, so we hope you love and enjoy it.

And surprise! I know you were all expecting the console launch and new content today - but were you expecting CREST, our new telemetry tool?

That’s right - the Codemasters RaceNet Evaluation and Statistics Tool is now live and available on dirtgame.com! PS4 and Xbox One players will be able to access it through the website immediately, whereas PC players will need the latest patch to play with it. However, we’re delighted to finally let you get your hands on it! It’s very cool – so let us tell you a little more about what it offers.

First of all, you’re going to want to know where to access it. Head to dirtgame.com, log into your RaceNet account, and click through to the Dailies data. We’ll be supporting Daily 1 and Daily 2 to begin with, so make sure you get competing in those to make the most out of your new data sets.

When you arrive there, you’ll have a new button under the Leaderboard header – ‘View Telemetry using CREST’. Using this, you can compare your ghost to the fastest time’s ghost – and that comparison covers a range of different inputs and information, including: sector times, racing line, braking, acceleration, speed, and even which gear you’re taking the corner in.

Giving you live feedback from a top-down aerial view, you’ll be able to slow down time and analyse your performance corner by corner. You can choose to have the tracker follow your cars around the map, or you can control your view manually – choosing to focus on particular segments or corners of track.

You’ll also be able to sort users by assists and input – so if you’re starting off with assists and a pad, you’ll be able to gauge your performance against people in the same boat. And, by the same token, if you’re using a wheel without any assists, then you’ll be able to measure yourself against the fastest of your field. Honestly, we could talk about it all day – but the best thing to do is download the patch and see it for yourselves. It holds some incredible data, and the insight it offers should really help you perfect your driving styles.

Oh, and did we mention it’s available and accessible via mobile too? Yes – now you’ll be able to check out your performance on your phone too. Although, mobile access does come with a caution: be prepared for lots of refreshing and it taking over your life. slywink

Of course, with V1.1 comes a whole host of tweaks and fixes – so here are the patch notes:

•   Game – A stock engineer team are now used in the Service area for Online Events to prevent some players gaining an advantage. This will also occur in Leagues depending on the settings used.
•   UI Fix – Users are now instantly informed and moved onto the next run if they unfortunately Terminally damage their vehicle on the start line of a Hillclimb event.
•   Achievement Fix – “I am the 5%” unlocking criteria has now been made clearer.
•   Online Fix – When a player enters the pause menu, their vehicle will now instantly ghost.
•   UI Fix – Controller disconnection message is now always showing on top of whichever screen you are on at that time.
•   Game Fix – Solved an issue when the option to apply the first perk to your Crew Chief was not showing.
•   AI Fix – In a Hillclimb event, the AI drivers will now place correctly if they Terminally Damage in their second run.
•   Online – Players no longer receive a Clean Race / Appearance bonus if they retire from the event early.
•   Game Fix – Fixed an issue where a player takes 2 joker laps in a row and then their 2nd Joker lap icon disappears due to the AI driver entering the Joker lap.
•   Vehicles - The threshold for punctures has been increased, making the tyres more resistant to punctures on landings.
•   Controls – Players can no longer accidently unbind ‘Gear Up’ and ‘Gear Down’ controls when re-assigning buttons if they have their preferential transmission set as Automatic.
•   COMMUNITY – Car Damage – Car parts will no longer clip through the Lancia Stratos cockpit when damaged.
•   COMMUNITY – Animations – Drivers are now shifting correctly when using either of the F2 Kit Cars.
•   COMMUNITY – Online Event – Some cars reported by the community should no longer gain an increase in performance after damaging their car exhaust.
•   COMMUNITY – Reset Lines - Some reset lines around the tight hairpins on the Monte carlo stage, Route de Turini, have been replaced.
•   Audio – Co-driver calls issues for Sweden have been fixed and minor adjustments to other locations.
•   Graphics – Corrected an issue where the wrong car kickup VFX was incorrectly being used after completing a stage in Greece.
•   Graphics – Crowd members in Sweden are now correctly dressed at all times.
•   Exploit – Possible shortcut on the German stage Flugzeugring has been removed.
•   Exploit – Users should now no longer have a second try at a daily event after quitting out via ALT+F4.
•   Graphics – Lighting issues should now be resolved when using a system with 3+ graphics cards in use.
•   Controllers – After using a racing wheel with H pattern transmission in game, upon rebooting and using a controller, the title will now recognise the change and change the transmission type accordingly.
•   Replays – Car reset points are now the same when viewing a replay as they are in game, removing the possibility of collision issues when watching a replay in slow motion.
•   Game – Custom Events now use a stock Team of engineers in the service area at all times.
•   Game – Hillclimb – AI drivers who terminally damage in their 2nd run will now be correctly placed in the final results screen.
•   Controller – Issue where the players controller will continuously rumble during the pre-race sequence for a rallycross event no longer occurs.
•   Leaderboards – Players who use a non-standard character as the first letter of their driver name will now be shown correctly in an events leaderboard.
•   Controls – Gear up/ Gear down can now be assigned controls when the user has set their transmission type to automatic.
•   Languages – Brazilian Portuguese and Russian added to the game.

Finally, thank you so much for sticking with us on this wild, bumpy, thrilling ride that is DiRT Rally. Your honest feedback, enthusiasm and engagement with us and the game has been utterly wonderful - and we can’t thank you enough. You’ve helped make the game what it is today, and for that, we’re truly grateful. Now today’s arrived, we can’t wait to share it with the world.

Yeah, it's too bad they launched it in the state it was since I think that kind of soured the impression for people who hadn't picked it up yet.

Yeah, it was a real bummer.  I didn't frequent there as much the last few years, but they had been a decent destination for video reviews and such.

I think most of the people from there are starting a new site, though I can't remember the name of it.

Remedy's games are an acquired taste and never quite fit into conventional genres, which the media never seem capable of grasping.

That was not the case with the Max Payne games at all (at least the original PC versions).
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Quantum Break on: April 01, 2016, 05:23:09 PM
Reviews are hitting for this and it's not exactly pretty.  As expected the TV episode portion is like watching a crappy SyFy show that interrupts the gameplay, but apparently even the gameplay doesn't really excel at much.

Metacritic shows reviews from 40 up to 100... http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-one/quantum-break/critic-reviews

Maybe RollerCoaster Tycoon World (note, RollerCoaster is one word in game title). Or maybe not. It's Early Access, with the baggage that brings. So I'll have to wait and think about it... or not Roll Eyes

You might want to keep an eye on Planet Coaster from Frontier instead.  It looks like a real game and not just a crappy cash-in by the new Atari.  They've released several development videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzpQvNnyoKgpu0lJdeXbFmQ/videos

We'll see what they really have to reveal, but that never seemed like a sensible design to me from technical, cost, ergonomics, or functionality standpoints.

None of that stopped them from making the Wii U gamepad slywink


That gamepad is at least using older single touch technology, is rectangular, fits in the hands easily, has buttons and sticks like normal modern gamepads, does not cover the screen with your hands, etc etc. 

It may not be the best gamepad ever, but mostly it is just an underused device because it's a gimmick.

Evolve actually turned out to be kind of fun at times, but man does it suck trying to find matches.  I think every time I try to play I spend as much time trying to find the right players as I do in matches.

Hopefully I get some time to play The Division or Far Cry Primal this weekend.  I haven't played too much of anything lately.

Didn't have much time, played a little bit of The Division but basically just side missions again.  I feel like I'm never making progress because every time I log in there are new side things between me and the story missions.

I guess I preordered Trackmania Turbo so hopefully that turns out decent.

I have the Fallout 4 season pass, but will probably wait to play that Automatron DLC until at least one more piece of content is out.

Not to mention that Nintendo has been famously behind-the-times with every portable screen they have ever released, from the monochrome original Gameboy, to the unlit original GBA, the low res DS, to the single-touch WiiU Gamepad. 

In the past they have gone for cheap production prices and high battery life over fancy/new/big screens.

I agree with the gimmicky thing.  I know they had that patent, but this still doesn't make any damn sense to me. 

Half the reason phone games suck is that your fingers cover the screen, so how are your thumbs ever going to not block the edges of that thing?  That shape also makes no sense, why not just make it rectangular like almost every other display device out there?

Daredevil Season 2 went up today. 

And I see that Pee Wee's Big Holiday is up now as well.

I also just watched Flaked with Will Arnett and thought it was a pretty decent short series.  Somewhat low key but good.

Personally I wouldn't do it currently, just because I'm on a cheaper $35 plan and trying to save money.  But if I wasn't on a budget I would probably just do it to support the competition and make everybody speed up and stick it to the cable company. 

I don't think you'll notice much difference with anything unless you're downloading from multiple fast locations (like Steam) and  streaming video at the same time or something.
