I added Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Remastered since that is also exiting Early Access tomorrow. 

This is the first game I remember playing in widescreen on my first HDTV.  Weird.

The new one (Ty 4) is actually really good, though it's a sidescrolling platformer and feels totally different.  I remember really enjoying the first one when it came out, but I don't know that it had anything that made it special.

This one has been in Early Access for quite a while.  Basically they used the proceeds from the 2D Ty 4 to help fund this, and assuming this goes well they are already planning on doing the same to the next game(s) in the series. 

I think the main reason it makes sense now is that with the revival of desire for 3D platformers they wanted to bring back Ty, but they are taking a more gradual path towards getting there than something like Yooka Laylee.

This is surprisingly a busy week for releases for me.

Buying (or already bought, I guess):
Forza Horizon 3 – Blizzard Mountain expansion
Warhammer 40k: Space Hulk: Deathwing

Watching
8-Bit Invaders: If you've been paying attention to these games (8-Bit Armies, 8-Bit Hordes), they are old-school style RTS games with the added effect that you can take the armies from each game into the others, so essentially have C&C vs Warcraft vs Starcraft now.

Filthy Lucre: anther tactical game similar to Shadow Tactics, except this time with a heist vibe.  They have added and changed a lot since the PS4 release a few months ago, so I'm hopeful it turns out well.

Astroneer: hoping that this brings a little of the magic that I wanted from No Man's Sky, but since it's Early Access I'll wait and see.

Final Fantasy XV and Skyrim Pinball for me.

Only Skyrim Pinball specifically?  Or all of the Bethesda Pinball tables?

I'm not crazy about either the Doom or Fallout tables, mainly because I'm generally not a big fan of either of those series.  The Fallout one is particularly lackluster, imo.

Skyrim feels like a full-fledged RPG, where you actually do quests, upgrade equipment, improve stats, etc.  It's far more immersive than I was expecting it to be.

Aah, interesting.  I guess that's just sort of the way it goes with pinball tables, whether it's the concept or the person that designs it or what, some are much more fun than others.

Guessing that there are no mid mission save points?

Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

Yeah, what I realized going back to it today is that it has saved my character progress, but not the level progress.  So I still had my levels, costumes, blueprints, etc that I had gotten the day before, but I had to re-do all my work to clear the level. 

So not ideal by any means, but at least it wasn't a total loss.

Awww, man...So I just started up DR4 again tonight and lo and behold I lost like two hours of progress.  Apparently it only saves at checkpoints?  I have no idea, but I'm pissed. 

Basically, I was in the mall area and before going into the hotel with Brad Whatever I cleared out all of the zombies, got all of the weapons, secrets, etc that I could, and then quit.  Come back tonight and it is saved before all of that, even before I had talked to Brad where he goes to the hotel. 

This is easily overcome, but it's the kind of setback that really derails my enthusiasm for playing a game.

This looks neat, but I don't think I have nearly the patience or level tactical savvy to be successful.  Will be a bargain bin pickup for sure though.

Have you tried out the demo?  I kind of thought that it would be too in-depth for me as well until I got in there and it played more like a stealth game from a tactical perspective than a pure hardcore tactical game.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (Commandos meets Ninjas/Samurais) on: December 07, 2016, 04:59:30 PM
I tried out the demo and really liked it.  If I hadn't just bought like 4 other games I would definitely be getting this right away.  The GreenmanGaming sale definitely has me tempted, but I need to resist for now.

So it seems like several people have picked up the full version, any more impressions?

109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mark McMorris Infinite Air snowboarding [PC/XB1/PS4] on: December 07, 2016, 02:47:30 AM
For anybody that was interested in a bit more serious and hardcore snowboarding game than Steep, they just put out a big update on all platforms that significantly updates things.

Performance has been improved drastically on the Xbox One, and I'd imagine on the others as well.  Smooth, fast framerate, no hitching...not an issue anymore.

The biggest change, though, is that they have added a lot more control to slowing or speeding up your spins.  Previously you had to perfectly judge your pre-wound torque and then that was kind of it.  That lead to a lot of out of control spins and flips.  Now you get a bit more control over it once you launch.  This is honestly a night-and-day change, and the fact that they were this responsive to player's complaints is a great sign for the future (to me).

They have also replaced all of their tutorials, added several more and overall teach new users and get them ninto the game much better.  There are also some videos you can watch in the game now for additional tips.

I was a little scared to come back to this after having so much fun in Steep, but with this update I think this one can still stand on it's own.  Not graphically (a small indie team will just never compete with Ubisoft's multi-studio empire), but in it's own ways.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun


EVERYONE who has a PC should try the demo out on Steam if they own a PC, and enjoy games like the old Commandos series. Hell, even if you don't try it out anyway. You may love it, and the demo is free!

Yeah, I'm trying this out and it seems awesome!  I never really played the old Commandos games beyond a demo or two, but this really satisfies my Tenchu ninja stealth assassin itch. 

I kind of wish it wasn't $40, but I also feel petty saying that.

$28.74 on GMG.

Damn you!  I can't really afford to get more games right now (or shouldn't), and I already have too many as it is.  But...   icon_neutral

Ok, this is exactly what I was looking for.  Of course I managed to die in the opening scene even with the overpowered weapons they give you, but I guess it took me a bit to get back into the rhythm.

Using the camera for PP as well as investigations?  Nice addition.

Selfies with zombies?  Classic.

Happy, jazzy Christmas music in the pause menus?  Brilliant!

Kinda janky base movement still?  Not great, but I can live with it.

What?  The reviews all seem very positive so far.

I've seen several people complain about the dated gameplay mechanics, camera wonkiness, etc including people who still like the game.  And apparently the GT review as well.

And just like that, it's out!!

Anybody else picking this up?  My copy just arrived from Amazon, but waiting on the install.  Despite it saying "Ready to Start" once you launch the game you can't start Story mode until it completes installing.  Aah, modern console gaming...

From the videos and reviews I've seen this looks right up my alley.  Streamline out some of the annoying/frustrating parts and embracing the open world nature of the game. 

I know that burns fans of the original two games, but at the time I don't remember many people actually enjoying the time limits, crappy save system or crafting restrictions, and I don't think the game is any worse for not having them.  Losing some character and quirkiness I can understand missing, though.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun


EVERYONE who has a PC should try the demo out on Steam if they own a PC, and enjoy games like the old Commandos series. Hell, even if you don't try it out anyway. You may love it, and the demo is free!

Yeah, I'm trying this out and it seems awesome!  I never really played the old Commandos games beyond a demo or two, but this really satisfies my Tenchu ninja stealth assassin itch. 

I kind of wish it wasn't $40, but I also feel petty saying that.

Day 13: Werewolves Within wallpapers.  I guess this is useful marketing because I didn't even know what this game was so had to look it up.

Transformers: The Last Knight   Nemesis Prime and Unicron  sighted   2017

If they could guarantee it wouldn't just be another 2 hours of random action scenes with terrible direction that might be fun.  But it's Michael Bay, so...
