81  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Release date 3/3/2017 on: March 02, 2017, 04:15:09 PM
I guess this is one of those games that the overall experience just trumps all of the complaints.  Even on the Switch version it looks like the framerate is very inconsistent.  And it sounds like lots of inventory management and an item degradation system that only detracts. 

I'm sure this is a great game, and one I definitely want to play, but I think if this was any game other than Zelda people would be a lot more critical of those issues.
82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MXGP3 [PC/PS4/XB1] on: March 02, 2017, 03:30:12 PM
Since I mentioned this in the Gravel thread, I figured I might as well start one for MXGP3 as well.  Even though there will only be two of us that care, haha.

Just like Gravel, it is being built on Unreal Engine 4 which definitely gives a huge graphical improvement in the trailers.

Announcement trailer

The game will be releasing sometime in May, depending on where you live and what platform you get it on. 
83  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gravel [PC/PS4/XB1] - it's like a discount DiRT! (seriously) on: March 02, 2017, 03:21:27 PM
It looks like Milestone, the developer/publisher of the MXGP, Ride, WRC series' and other racing games, has decided to go directly head-to-head with DiRT 4 this summer with their own game Gravel.

Not a ton of details yet, but they mention "infinite races" in this this announcement trailer, along with "wide open maps" in the Cross Country mode.  So hopefully that means something along the lines of the old MXvsATV maps with random checkpoint races.

This is also being built on Unreal Engine 4, just like MXGP3 coming in May, so that should give them a leg up when it comes to graphics and performance.  That is something they've always struggled with when competing against Codemasters.

Quote
Gravel will offer an experience unique to its kind: Milestone’s pedigree in simulation is valued here with physics grounded in reality, but fun will be the main focus, among wild drifting on the different terrains, crazy jumps and impossible maneuvers.

The variety of powerful vehicles, from trophy trucks to rally legends, will offer many different approaches to the driving experience, and the wide offer of environments will have you strapped in for an unforgettable world tour.

Among deserts, jungles and snowy mountains you will have to shine in each and every discipline, whether it’s the wide open maps of the Cross Country or the narrow tracks of the Speed Cross. Become the ultimate Master or take part in some wild competition in the online game modes: Gravel will always have some fun ready for you!

Quote
MAIN FEATURES

The definitive off-road challenge: explore exotic locations, drive iconic vehicles in extreme conditions, defy the champions, and become the ultimate Offroad Master.

Gravel celebrates off-road racing by taking you to exotic locations around the world with some of the most exciting vehicles ever created. Become the Master in four exciting disciplines and be part of the greatest off-road competition ever seen, Offroad Masters: will you be able to #StealTheShow?

Unleashing the full power of Unreal Engine 4, Gravel bestows each location with an unprecedented level of detail and makes the competition fun for everyone: photorealistic graphics, dynamic time of day and weather system, accessible physics that can be enjoyed by everybody, breath-taking locations where the player can race at full speed rushing through forests, snowy mountains, dunes, deserts, impressive lighting and particle effects.

-The launch release is a totally different build, so it's best to uninstall the open beta. I read it as you won't be able to update the open beta to full release, as was the case with closed beta>open beta. Maybe "duh," but clearly some folks were asking about it to be sure.

That was certainly a question I had.  If I could have avoided another ~40 GB download to just update the beta that would have been nice!

I guess I would have preferred DiRT Rally 2 with the track generator, but I guess there are really some people that like rallycross.

For me it's not the rallycross that's the appeal of DiRT, it's more the fact that I also love trophy trucks, buggies, and thinking of driving races like the Dakar Rally across the desert.  I want more of that stuff!

Windows 10 most likely means Microsoft store version

Yeah, they have said that it will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so that means if you buy the digital version on XB1 or the Win10 store you get it on the other for free.

Engy, if you click the 'friends' icon up top in uPlay interface, then click "+Add Friends," the resulting pop-up window has a blue "Import Friends from Steam" button. I'm not certain what it does; I assumed it would add Steam friends IF they're on uPlay too, duno for sure.

Ooh, neato!  I hit that button and it did come up with a big list of people on my Steam list that also have a Uplay name that I could add.  Mass invites sent, haha!

Quote from: Blackjack on March 01, 2017, 07:19:51 AM

As far as account linking goes, I thought that was more a function used so that if if you bought a game via Steam but play it actually through uPlay (a la The Division), then uPlay automatically would launch when starting the game from Steam. If that's not too confusing.  icon_smile And of course I could be wrong. The whole "buy a game on one service to play it on a different service" makes my head spin.

Aah yeah, you're probably right about that.  Duh, didn't even occur to me.

So it's like Netflix streaming in that it will roll off when I'm 1/3 of the way into it.  Great.

Yeah, hopefully they have a system-wide implementation to let you know in plenty of time before a game is cycled out.  Probably not, but a week's notice would be nice.

Got to say this kind of sours me on the game.  I am not it the don't buy camp yet but I like playing while my kids watch and I really don't need any space porn.   If it is handled like Dragon Age I will be fine because I just didn't follow up on those "story lines" but it doesn't make me more interested in the game.

What it actually makes me think of doing it cancelling my pre-order, getting Horizon Zero (which seems to be pretty good) and then wait to see how Mass Effect turns out.

I'm assuming all of the romantic and sex scenes are completely optional, right?  I can't see any reason it would be different now.

uPlay offers an option to import your Steam friends list (I guess it knows which are also on uPlay or something?), but it seems to require making your Steam profile 'public,' which not everybody wants to do.

Oh really?  I've never seen that.  I wonder if it's new?  How do you get to that option?

EDIT: Hmm, I guess I see in the Settings that I had Account Linking set up already.  Maybe it's been silently adding some friends to my list or something?

As outed by Target online this last weekend, apparently it's official.  Shadow of Mordor is getting a follow-up later this summer called Middle Earth: Shadow of War.

The rumored release date is in August, so I'm sure we'll be hearing more about it soon.  If not this week at GDC.

You can go check out the page on Steam and... preorder it I guess?

Also lots of press that got hardware for reviews coming out saying that the joy cons (or specifically the left one only?) have troubles keeping a clean signal going with any kind of interference, including your body.  That's a really bummer, as it may be something that can't even be fixed by a firmware update?

I would say "hopefully Nintendo comes out and addresses that", but talking publicly about those sorts of things is not really their style.

That seems like a really big mistake if it is hardware related. I have a hard time believing that they didn't catch something like that in testing. Which makes me be hopeful that it's just a case by case defective controller issue.

Could be, and that's what I hope.  But it seems like any press who have tried to can easily replicate the issue.  I can't afford one at launch anyway, so for once I won't be one of the early adopters and can wait to see if they address it.

And, so far, there's one game that requires a memory chip.

There is a very big difference between something that is specifically designed for advancing games more than 2 years after the fact, vs shipping a crippled system that can't even support all of the games out of the gate.

Oh, and the games that required that expansion pack actually shipped with one in the only way that you could purchase those games.  So even if they bought one and brought it home on Christmas, they had everything necessary to play them.

Does no one remember the N64 expansion packs?  It's not like they haven't done this sort of thing before.

That was actually a very different thing.  First, it only came out a couple years after the console had already been on the market in order to give it more RAM for new games.

Secondly, you could still play any games up until it launched and the vast majority afterwards without it.  Only 3 games ever required it. 
113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (from Tom Clancy's Ubisoft) on: February 23, 2017, 09:25:10 PM
For me, the worst part of the driving is just the camera.  It swings around unlike a racing game would and kind of makes me sick.  I don't remember that from the previous test so I wonder if something has changed?  Or maybe I just didn't pay enough attention then.

Also, I thought that this was supposed to be a new area in this beta?  I was finally able to get in after getting a repeated error earlier, and it's the exact same area and exact same mission.  Sure glad I had to re-download that 25GB.  disgust

I'm not going to play through this stuff again, as I know I'll need to do it in the beginning of the game as well and just like The Crew if I do it in multiple betas I'll be so burned out on the early stuff I don't want to play the real game.

Oh boy...   retard  Not that it really surprises me, but to have one at launch that can't even fit on there is just really sad. 

32GB is just such a small drive, it is hard to believe they would choose that, but of course Nintendo has always seemed a bit short-sighted on what other companies might want or require.

My guess is they went small on the internal HD because they used MicroSD cards for the expansion slot. MicroSD is so cheap that they figure everyone will upgrade on their own and get the size that they want. Thus saving Nintendo money by not including a large HD.

They could have really screwed us by including a small internal HD and then using a proprietary expansion memory type like Sony did with the Vita.

Yeah, obviously they did it as a cost saving measure and expect people to upgrade.  But it just doesn't seem right to do that and not even have the space for one game.  And Switch games are only going to get larger as they get more coming from the other consoles and PC.

Think of your average non-techie non-gamer family, which is their target audience.  How sad/upset would they be if they get one of those home on birthday/holiday and then realize that they can't even download the game little Jimmy really wants without going back to the store?

Giant robots!  Miniaturized!  Weta!

As the title says, Weta Workshop has put up their first tabletop game on Kickstarter in collaboration with Cryptozoic.  Any decent miniatures game on Kickstarter tends to go a bit crazy, so hopefully this one does as well.

Giant Killer Robots: Heavy Hitters is a 2-4 player combat game on a hex board with cards.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wetaworkshop/gkr-heavy-hitters

I've seen videos and screenshots of this for quite a while, so I know they've been building the models of various sizes and playtesting the game for quite some time.  And of course both Weta and Cryptozoic are pretty well known in their respective fields, so this is no fly-by-night venture.

Has anyone here really played Blood Bowl 2?  Is it something that would be fun for somebody that is barely interested in real sports and sports games?

Oh boy...   retard  Not that it really surprises me, but to have one at launch that can't even fit on there is just really sad. 

32GB is just such a small drive, it is hard to believe they would choose that, but of course Nintendo has always seemed a bit short-sighted on what other companies might want or require.

For anyone that was interested in this on PC but didn't want to jump into the Windows Store, it is coming to Steam on March 14th. 

It's available for preorder and there is a 20% off discount up through launch, but then back up to $60 after that...which seems kinda crappy at this point.   disgust  Hopefully it has been patched to run well by then?  Or maybe it already has been?

Another Lego Batman trailer

https://youtu.be/rGQUKzSDhrg

I went to see this movie last weekend and it was great!  Lots of action and humor, as you'd expect.  I was a little worried about the kind of onenote "dark and brooding Batman" joke not carrying a whole movie, but it all definitely worked.  I'd say I maybe even enjoyed it more than the first LEGO Movie, and on the action front probably more than most superhero movies lately as well.
