I started up and played for a couple hours maybe, but haven't quite gotten my own pawn yet.  

I'm happy to see I have 8 Steam Friends who already have this game...should be interesting pawn swapping in another day or two.   icon_smile

Going to move on to Dragon's Dogma like most people. This will be my 3rd time purchasing it. I purchased it once before the expansion. Didn't play it. Then purchased it a second time with the expansion. Put in about 30 minutes and stopped after I wasn't feeling it at the time. But will give it a 3rd go now.

Yeah, be sure to give it a fair shake.  If I remember correctly I wasn't sold immediately before, but the game grew on me more and more as the systems were exposed and I saw how the world opened up a bit more.

I've been starting into Subnautica and having some fun exploring.

I had a blast with that for about 10 or so hours until there wasn't a huge goal other than surviving and exploring. At that point I was pretty had no issues keeping myself a live. And the only exploration were the deep areas - which I couldn't explore for that long as they didn't put in the deep diving suit yet.

Did get back in to the game after the big update the other day and am playing on Hardcore mode where you have 1 life.

Still enjoying it and looking forward to future content updates.

Yeah, they just put out that big update yesterday that gave it a fancy graphics overhaul, added the scanner device (which helps giving me directed content to "collect them all"), redid the terrain and a bunch of other stuff.  It's funny, as I had only started playing the day before and then it got a big update and the visual change to me was drastic.  Much more dramatic day/night as well as darkness going deeper.

I'm assuming with the Seamoth and the Sub you'd definitely be able to explore the far depths more now.

I'm still kind of struggling to figure out how to progress very well.  It seems all my construction is usually limited by one resource that I can't find, so it feels like it's taking a long time just to get the basic tools.

Is anyone else having a problem getting an xbox controller working? I changed the video options no problem but when I select controller and hit backspace it doesn't save the change. I tried with both xbox one and 360 controller attached. I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

I think the menu for controls lets you see and assign for either, but you're not actually selecting your control method. The game will use either/or while you're actively playing, so your controller should just work if have it plugged in and can see it there.

Also, on the menus Back and Save are different actions, just for clarity.

What happens when you hang out at a con with stoker nominated author Craig DiLouie and you both trick convince British horror author David Moody to join in your madness? This. This is what happens.

We're calling it: Band of Brothers meets Dead Snow.

I'm curious to hear how you did the multi-author writing.  Did you each take a chapter and pass it back and forth for massaging, or did one do more outline and others flesh out details, or...?

I've been starting into Subnautica and having some fun exploring.

I will probably also dig into the new Dragon's Dogma PC version and have fun corrupting everybody else's pawns.

And I'm still trying to finish up the DLC missions in Fallout: New Vegas, though not sure how much more steam I have to do that.

The first game turned out much more fun than expected or than it had any right to be, so I'm excited to see what they can do with a full fledged sequel a couple years later. 

The multiplayer beta has launched today on XBone and PS4, I think all you have to do is download it to give it a whirl. 

Oh, and what do you know, some gaming site called "Gaming Trend" has a preview of the classesslywink  And here's a beta trailer.

The main thread is right here, fwiw.

I don't think they have yet been able to release the big performance update/patch, but I'm not sure it was unplayable in the first place unless you are very framerate sensitive or can't stand some slowdowns on explosions and such.  Though I've played it on the PC, so take that for what it's worth.
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen out! on: January 13, 2016, 08:26:05 PM
This has been the top seller on Steam for the last few days, which gives me hope that it will be seen as a success by Capcom.  And plenty of pawns available in the pawniverse as well.

So, kind of coming out of nowhere after some lengthy delays Deep Silver has announced a release date for May 17, 2016.

And here's a new trailer called "This is Philadelphia" that honestly makes the game look pretty much like it did a couple years ago (but slightly less graphically impressive).  Freedom Fighters meets Watch Dogs or something?

You can also sign up for some Xbox One closed beta over at their website: https://www.homefront-game.com/

Welcome back!   thumbsup

To be honest, I'd say my life is in more upheaval now than it has been in 8 years or so.  Lots of uncertainty and doubt.  Family problems, health problems, personal problems...it's been a very challenging last few months. 

I've sort of turned to games more than ever to get away from all the problems, which of course is both good and bad.  It doesn't fix anything but does get my mind off things.   icon_confused

Well, one cool part about the pawn system is that every time other people use your pawn it can "learn" from what they are doing. 

For instance, if they encounter a beast that you have never encountered, after your pawn comes back to you they will then be able to give you hints on how to defeat it.  If the other player killed a cyclops with your pawn and then you later encounter one, your pawn may then say "climb it and stab it in the eye" or something. 

And the same goes for quests, secrets and areas discovered on the map.  It was a really unique and ingenious "multiplayer" solution.

And of course any pawns you have with you are also learning and taking things back to their owners.  So you want to be helping your friends out and them doing the same.

Already been playing it for the site. I can't give too much in the way of impressions.

What I can say: I didn't play this when it came out on last-gen. Playing it now, on the PC, I understand why people got into this game. It's definitely a unique title.

Aggghhh. Now I have to hold my silence until Jan. 14. biggrin 

I'm curious, since you're reviewing this early are there enough pawns from other people and/or people using your pawn to make that system come alive?

Definitely!  Half the fun of the game is the crazy pawn system and interacting with other people's pawns. 

Also, I already broke down and pre-purchased the game.  Apparently two people picking it up is now my lowered threshold of "forum effect".    retardicon_biggrin

I am "Engine Nine" on Steam for anybody who wants to add me (assuming the pawn system uses Steam Friends lists).

Still trying to finish up Fallout: New Vegas.

I did finish off the main story and all the sidequests in the open world.  I started on the Lonesome Road DLC but haven't gotten too far on it yet.  Still a few more DLC expansions beyond that as well I guess.
112  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout: New Vegas - late to the party thread on: January 10, 2016, 05:17:05 PM
I run things pretty similar to JZ without the gameplay tweaks, but the one I'd definitely suggest on top of the texture packs would be MTUI, which makes the UI use more screen real estate which especially helps with dialog choices and such.



Oh, it's also worth noting that when downloading the NMC texture packs, you have to click on the Files to see the list of all the files and then download each pack.  This may seem like a no-brainer to somebody who uses NMC more often, but originally I just clicked on the "Download via NMM" link up top and it only installed the 3 or 3 file.  :/

Dying Light had to be the game that I did the biggest 180 on last year.  I really almost hated it after the first couple hours, especially since I had a bad failure at the first night mission, but after I went back to try it again and got further into the game I really enjoyed it. 

Your parkour skills do evolve and get better as the game goes one as well, but I don't think that was the helping factor for me.

I haven't done any of the side missions yet, so there should still be several hours of other fun after the main story ends.  If I'm not burned out by then.
Two quests you need to check out are the White Glove Society and the Repconn Test Site.  White Glove is probably one of the best questlines in the game with about 5 different ways you can handle the “situation”. 

Repconn just made me happy.

Oh, I didn't mean actual side missions, I meant the DLC add-on missions.  My bad. 

There are some good side missions, though I felt like I finished that White Glove Society mission before I had all the information which made it a bit disjointed in my playthrough. 

It also feels like sometimes they make these side areas just a bit too big and maze-like for my enjoyment.  Places like the casinos, the Hoover Dam and others took me several times to figure out how to actually traverse them and find the areas that matter.  Yes, some people really like having buildings, hallways and doors that open up to 40 unused rooms, but I would prefer to not get lost just trying to find the one person or thing that matters.
117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout: New Vegas - late to the party thread on: January 09, 2016, 05:01:10 PM
I think I must be nearing the end of the base story/missions at this point.  I've taken down House and the conflicts on the Strip.  I've blown up the Steel Brotherhood, gotten the Great Khans to move out and got the Boomers on my side.  It seems like may still be some areas I've still barely explored but haven't had missions to go there yet.

Coming from Fallout 4 my impression was that the Followers of the Apocalypse were a bunch of crazy people, but in New Vegas they seem to be the most sane.  Here they are basically Doctors Without Borders in the post apocalypse.  I wish they had more missions so I could truly side with them instead of the NCR that is supposedly still oppressing people with taxes and taking land.  So it goes. 

I also haven't really found any true romance options, which is a bit of a bummer.  I've got max Charisma, Int, Speech and the Lady Killer perk and yet I can't get any ladies to fall in love with me.  Or even any interesting options for talking to them.  This is far too true to life.  slywink

I haven't done any of the side missions yet, so there should still be several hours of other fun after the main story ends.  If I'm not burned out by then.

As of yesterday The Force Awakens has set a new US domestic box office record, beating out Avatar.  Global box office is still quite a bit behind by a bit.

Quote
J.J. Abrams' blockbuster "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has officially passed James Cameron's "Avatar" to become the highest grossing film of all time at the domestic box-office (not accounting for inflation).

Today, 'Wars' pushed past the $760.5 million earned by "Avatar" in the United States - having done so in its twentieth day of release in cinemas. Globally though, 'Force Awakens,' is a long way from matching the $2.78 billion earned by "Avatar" with the film's worldwide tally currently at $1.56 billion.
