Is anybody getting this on Xbone?  I'm now being tempted by the forum effect but it sounds like most people are getting the PS4 version?
82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (08/18) on: August 18, 2014, 04:00:46 PM
Nothing off the new list, though I did buy a hero pack for Marvel Heroes yesterday.  Not sure why I decided to get into that now, but it will probably serve as a pacifier against buying Diablo 3 on console.
83  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 18, 2014, 03:58:52 PM
I think in the PS3 and 360 versions (and I'm assuming the new PS4 and Xbone ones) there was less loot overall and less trash loot specifically, so you had to do less inventory juggling and selling since that's easier on a PC interface.

I haven't bought a Madden game in years but the commercial EA made for this season's game is hilariously, yet bizarrely, epic.

Yeah, I couldn't care less about Madden, but even I found that to be interesting marketing.

Looks like they're finally adding some of that stuff with the addition of health/mortality, equipment, weapons, abilities, loot chests and interactive objects.  That will all launch on the 27th and I guess monsters will come in September.

I kind of wish I had grabbed this during the cheap Steam sale.

So for those pissed at the Tomb Raider exclusivity deal, why wasn't there the same outrage at Bloodborne being exclusive for Sony?  I bought the Dark Souls games on PC and would have loved to get the next game in the "series" on there as well.
87  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Robin Williams found dead on: August 12, 2014, 04:01:04 AM
I was surprised to see he was only 63.  He was actually a couple years younger than my parents.  Not that 63 is young, but I thought he was like 10 years older than that. 
88  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: R.I.P Robin Williams - Apparent Suicide on: August 11, 2014, 11:51:32 PM
Man, crazy that he survived this long with all of his drug and alcohol issues only to succumb to depression.  What a shame.
89  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Why all the hate toward Activision? on: August 11, 2014, 07:32:04 PM
The hate has mostly died down to a mild simmer since they shut up Bobby Kotick.  He had a real penchant for making statements that made him (and Activision) come across like a greedy prick with no respect for gamers as consumers.

I don't have any kids or anything, so my gadgets are usually in really good shape.   icon_smile 

I will say I'm actually somewhat careless with my phone and Nexus 7 tablet but they always withstand it.  I don't like putting screen protectors on things, and I just throw my phone in my pocket with keys or whatever, but the screens these days never get scratched.  I'll travel occasionally with my tablet or Kindle and just shove them in a bag with no issues. 

When I was sick a couple months ago I did set my 1st gen Kindle down next to my bed and ended up stepping on it when I had to get up for the bathroom.  That's the first gadget I've truly broken in quite some time I think.

My sister has two kids (15 and 12) and they have definitely learned to get the protection plans on the kids' phones and whatever else they use.  And even with that, I know my nephew just broke my sister's phone a week after she just got a new one (that was replacing one that also had issues from the kids handling it).  I think the secret is to just not have kids. 
92  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Podcasts on: August 09, 2014, 08:04:12 AM
I don't listen to many podcasts regularly, mostly just the Bombcast from Giant Bomb. 

I've recently started having to commute much further every day (through LA traffic) so I've been meaning to find some more.  A coworker friend suggested a few like Comedy Bang Bang and some others I can't remember.

I'm still in the dark ages of just copying an mp3 onto a USB stick for my car, none of this subscribecast stuff for me.  slywink

I love me a good PC tech demo but for such I would not pay more than $20. Hopefully that's where it's priced at.

Well, at least it's being published by Deep Silver and not Microsoft, so there's a better chance of that.  At least maybe during a Steam sale or something.
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Ryse on: August 08, 2014, 04:30:59 AM
It looks like somebody can put [PC] in the title, as this one is coming to PC this fall. 

Looks like Microsoft is making good on allowing more titles to come to PC.  Too bad it had to be such a mediocre one this time.

Also Starforge



for $4.99 (75% off)

I'm tempted but it seems like this had a lot of negative feedback from the early builds last year but it was improving...has anyone played it recently?

Robocraft.  I spent way more time with it last weekend than I intended, and they've put out an update.

Yup, played plenty of Robocraft.  Some of the shine is starting to wear off as progress slows and the grind sets in, but it's still fun.

Tried the Evolve alpha, but not for long.

And I reinstalled the original Dirt on my PC as well.  Still a great game.

They said robot and I was hoping for an Omega type game, build a robot, program it and set it loose. There was another game just like Omega but much more graphic oriented about 10 years ago which was also good. In Robocraft it looks like you are building a vehicle to drive, not a robot, correct? (Their website is horrible).

Yeah, Robocraft is all piloted vehicles, not AI controlled. It all leads to some great wackiness as the vehicle parts get destroyed and people go spiraling away, a bit like World of Tanks goes to the circus. 

But yes, I did play Omega back on the ol' Apple IIGS, and loved it to death.   icon_biggrin

Ah hell yeah, season 4 of The Killing is up.  Episode one was fantastic.  Gonna be hard not to binge watch them all this weekend.

I've had that show in my queue for ages since the first season was available, I assume you'd say that it is worthwhile starting?

I watched this on a plane a couple months ago and thought it was good for what it was.  Lots of cool cars going fast and doing crazy stuff.  Plot was lame/predictable, but that was to be expected.

It so happens that I ordered one of those extended batteries for the pad from Amazon. At the time I ordered it, the cost was $65. Now it's up to about $75. It looks like Nintendo no longer sells the extended battery themselves. I checked the website and could not find it. If it is discontinued, the prices on Amazon are going to get ridiculous, so if anyone is interested in getting one, now would be the time to get it.

This is the product page on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EZPU0E2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Yeah, I had looked around for the one on Nintendo's site a few weeks back and could no longer find it.  I'm not sure why they quit selling it but I don't think I'm willing to spend $75 on it, I figured $35 or maybe $40.  It looks like PlayAsia still has them on sale for $35 though.

Visa keeps trying to sell me a black metal credit card with a ridiculous price tag so I guess it can't be too bad.

Haha, I got an offer for one of those in the mail the other week as well.  I'm not sure whatever "VIP Benefits" they come up with is worth $500 yearly fee.  Purely a goofy status symbol credit card.

Sounds like they are doing the developer equivalent of going to the pawn shop to try and get some much needed cash so they can stay afloat.

Yeah, that's how I read the situation as well.  They've pawned off this studio and game to keep what they have left going.  Which doesn't really seem to be on steady ground either considering how many people have been leaving.

Probably another good move for Deep Silver, though, if they can just establish the same team back on the project and finish it off.  Seemed to work out when they did that for Saints Row 4.  Hopefully they delay it to next summer or something and really polish it and release sometime not around every other major title.

I guess there's a difference between a sandbox game and something where your only goal is to build buildings.  It's the difference between Minecraft's Survival mode and the Creative building mode. 

I was pretty sure they had specifically said at one point that they were looking to add some more sandbox gameplay and non-traditional elements to it.  In fact, quoting someone we know  slywink:

So much fun to be had and potential. The lead dev said they would add combat as well to this, and you'll be able to place NPC's and what-have-we so...I'm rather excited about the future of this.

Hmm, on the one hand there look to be some really nice visuals and the groundwork for cool action scenes, but on the other something about the trailer left me feeling hollow.  Oh well, it's early, I'm sure I'll bite.

For anyone that was looking to get in on this, I noticed that all the founder's packs are 66% off on Steam right now.  If you're into paying for closed beta, that means you can get in on the lowest level for less than $7.

BTW, has anybody been "playing" this?  I'm really curious to know if there are any gameplay elements yet or if it's still purely a building sandbox.
118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Gear Up and Robocraft on: July 27, 2014, 03:12:15 AM
I tried out both of these today and surprisingly I found I like Robocraft more. 

Initially I thought that the more simplified building, variety of movement types and overall style of Gear Up was going to appeal to me more, but in the end I didn't find it all that satisfying.  It may have been because I was so limited in choice in the free version, and it felt like I wasn't earning

Robocraft is much more like Nuts & Bolts with the piece-by-piece cubic building, but it is more limited in means of locomotion than Gear Up, seemingly only wheels and hovering.  I'll have to play quite a bit more to unlock all the things I want, but I already feel like there is plenty to mess with in Robocraft.  And despite any limitations, the battles are much more satisfying for some reason, and I felt like I was earning enough every match to make me want to go right back into it.

Yeah, I can't pull up my Friends list on my Xbone now, and I'm not even playing Destiny.  Something is boned.
