Day 10: EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION OF 30 E3 2016 CARDS!!!!!! 

Actually some of the older ones are kinda neat, though it's not like i have a use for them.  Here's a taste (there are a lot more in the pack).










43  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 12/02/16 Edition on: December 02, 2016, 11:21:42 PM
I'll be playing Steep on the Xbox One, since I decided I'd never get it as a gift anyway.

And probably Paladins and try a bit more of Helldivers and several other smaller games.

I went in for $30, seems a good a way as any to get some money to charity.

Same here.  But that means I have some extra game codes for anybody that's interested (Bit.Trip Runner 2, Psychonauts, Kholat so far)

What the title says.  GOG is having their winter sale, just like every other site is or will be.

But you can also get a free copy of NWN Diamond edition by going to their site in the first 48 hours, so that's alright.

Yeah, I guess I don't see the point in paying for a streaming service that just gives you the same as a basic cable service with no DVR or anything. 

I suppose you could watch it on other devices, but I never want to do that with live TV (not that I watch any live TV anymore, I guess).

55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: November 30, 2016, 06:38:48 PM
I'm not sure if anybody is still playing this, but in keeping with Ubisoft's trailer day they have put out a trailer for their Year 2 content that you can get with a season pass or a new Gold or Complete edition of the game.

Just like Season 1, all maps will be available for everybody and the new operators will be able to be purchased with in-game credits for those who don't get the pass.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Crew: Calling All Units expansion [XB1/PS4/PC] on: November 30, 2016, 06:28:26 PM
This comes out today and they have released a launch trailer for this expansion.

I am interested in trying it out, but since it's only my gift wishlist I will have to wait until after then holidays (when I have to inevitably just buy it for myself).

The nice thing is that everybody will be able to play the "robber/racer" portion by picking up crates in the world, but only people with the expansion will be able to play the cops to chase them down.  I really like how they have worked the expansions for this game in general, adding lots of extra features and polish for existing players so everybody is still in the same world, on the same page basically.
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Guitar Hero Live on: November 30, 2016, 06:25:38 PM
The songs in Guitar Hero Live don't include the explicit versions, but I don't think there is any way to specifically limit which ones he would be exposed to. 

One option is to create a Playlist of the songs you approve of and then have him only play from that, though I suppose if you wanted to play the Career mode that doesn't work.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Steep [XB1/PS4/PC] - Ubisoft open world extreme sports thingy on: November 30, 2016, 06:17:38 PM
They have announced what will be coming in their Season Pass that comes with the Gold Edition.  Personally I'm not very impressed other than adding in the sledding.  And it's kind of worrying that you have to buy or get these limited "Helicopter Credits" in order to drop in anywhere you want.  Wtf? 

Here's a trailer that may only be available in the US since they like to region-lock their trailers now.

Right Away:
10000 Steep Credits
10 Helicopter Tickets
Exclusive Snowman Costume

Adrenaline Pack:
New costumes
Night time challenges and glowing costumes

Winterfest Pack:
New Sport: Sledding
More Challenges
More Goofy Costumes

Extreme Pack:
3 New Sports (Rocket Wings, Base Jump, Speed Gliding) ...ugh, more like modifiers on wingsuit
More Challenges

Yeah, this is a real hot pile of garbage.  The problem is that they are going to have one or two other days of actual useful things so I need to remember to check them, I just forget all the time.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: November 29, 2016, 11:58:55 PM
They never said their changes DIDN'T affect levels 1-30.  They implied that their changes affected the entire game.  People were complaining about the whole game, so it wouldn't make sense to only fix the end game where most people had already fallen off.

Quote
Gameplay Changes

Time-to-kill enemy NPCs has been lowered.
Many improvements were made to enemy AI.
Player ammo capacity has been increased by 50% after level 30.
...
Only one of those statements specifically mentions post 30 gameplay.  For every change that only affected late game play, they specifically mentioned it.

And thanks for assuming we don't know how to hit a fucking headshot.  I use a mouse on the PC, I know how to shoot somebody in the head. 

If I creep up on some chumps standing around a body, I should be able to take one down with a quick burst to the head.  But no, the just jerk back and take further shots.

The difference between this and Destiny is that you aren't shooting aliens and monsters with crazy weapons.  These guys aren't in power armor, they aren't crazy future soldiers, they are just thugs.  I'm shooting an assault rifle at a guy with a hoodie, and he is sucking up bullets.  That is the very definition of bullet sponge.

Quote from: Harkonis on November 29, 2016, 10:04:08 PM

Sorry you guys feel that way, unless your gun is way underlevelled though I don't see how you can feel that way.  Fighting stuff at World Tier 5 with my newly acquired gear and I kill normal guys in 5-10 rounds with only the elites taking a full mag.  Bosses might require a reload.  Hit them in the head and use your abilities and things die really damned fast now (including you if you don't use cover now)

upgrade weapons, aim for head, things die fast.

I felt that way from the very start.  After the patch I even restarted with a brand new character to make sure I wasn't just in some weird place with my old one, and it still felt exactly the same to me.  I have a feeling you're talking about some post-30 content, which maybe feels better now, but the core experience is still nowhere near anything that should be called Tom Clancy.
64  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] Arrival on: November 29, 2016, 10:20:13 PM
I went to a matinee of this today.  It was pretty good.  Well made and all, but ultimately unsatisfying for me.

Spoiler for Hiden:
It just seemed super obvious from the very opening scene and her "hit you on the head" voice over about how she views time differently that the outcome would be a way to view time non-linearly.  Add in all of the flashbacks/forwards and it was all pretty obvious about halfway through so I figured there must be something else coming...except there wasn't. 

They even really played up the mystery of who the kid's father was going to be, as if you didn't know it was going to be Jeremy Renner.  Ooooh, let's keep him out of focus for a couple minutes and then have a big reveal.  Bah.  What a joke.

It just felt like they were dragging everything on way past the point of where there was any mystery.  I'd put it on the "easy" end of the spectrum of taking elements from Contact, Sphere, Interstellar, etc.

But anyway, as I said above it was overall very well made and a good movie.  It just left me hollow at the end.

Does anybody else have the problem where they put games on their holiday/birthday lists, but know that their family won't get them so you get super tempted when they go on sale?  Yeah...Cyber Monday makes me want to just buy all the games since I know it's the best prices before launch.

69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/23/16 Thanksgiving Edition on: November 28, 2016, 02:49:59 PM
I played more Paladins as usual.

Then I also started on a few smaller games despite having plenty of big ones to jump into.  Sky Force Anniversary is a fun vertical scrolling shmup, much less of a bullet-hell than a lot of those types of games.  And Caveblazers is a 2D pixel action roguelike that has managed to capture my attention.  And a little bit more time in Infested Planet and Zombie Night Terror because apparently I have gaming ADHD.

I am not sure if I'm buying anything or waiting until after the holidays even though I never get games for gifts.

Having said that, I want Watch Dogs 2 on PC, thinking about Steep since they have some long term support plans for it, and maybe The Crew Calling All Units at some point.

Oh, and I'm curious to see how The Dwarves turns out, but not enough to jump in right away.

I don't think clicking Not Interested actually affects the sales lists.  Or at least not all of them.

I have said I'm not interested in stupid soccer and anime games so many times that they should never show up anywhere, but they still come up in at least some of the featured/recommended/highlighted sections.   *Fist Shaking*

Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat as you guys (except I had to uninstall to free up space).  I might go back after another patch or two, but between the disappointment and already running what was there into the ground, I'm not super excited to go back yet.

Does anyone know of a way to get steam to stop offering me things that are already in my library?Typically about 75% of things on my screen are already in my library. No matter how good the sale is, I'm not buying it again.

I thought that was supposed to be one of the things that they fixed in this new big Store update, but it appears that when things are on sale they ignore that? 

Maybe they want us to buy extra copies for our friends or something?

78  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Worth changing from a 980 GTX to a 1080 GTX? on: November 25, 2016, 03:24:25 PM
I guess it depends on your personal financial situation.  To me it wouldn't be worth it, but I don't have a 4k monitor or the extra money to spend right now. 

If you plan on doing 4k gaming with AAA first person shooters and such, then the extra speed (and probably more importantly more VRAM) is going to help you do that.

Note that these benchmarks are for the normal GTX cards, not the GTX Ti cards which are going to be a bit faster.  If your current or expected card is a Ti, you can change it to that.
