Personally I wouldn't do it currently, just because I'm on a cheaper $35 plan and trying to save money.  But if I wasn't on a budget I would probably just do it to support the competition and make everybody speed up and stick it to the cable company. 

I don't think you'll notice much difference with anything unless you're downloading from multiple fast locations (like Steam) and  streaming video at the same time or something.

Yeah, I've been playing on and off. mostly weekends though. I saw Engine online the other day and it was weird. He showed up on radar but I couldn't see him when I got close. Guess it's supposed to be that way?

Yeah, I saw something like that as well.  It's weird that they would make friends show up on the map, but maybe they're trying to increase the social feeling without impacting your gameplay?

Sorta, it looks great but I don't know anyone in the PC universe so if I want to do dark zone stuff  I'll probably do it on XB1.

I'm playing on PC, and I know Caine, Naednek, Punisher and others are as well.  I would say feel free to add anyone on the GT Ultimate Friends List that has UPlay listed (not too many compared to Steam/etc).

I will warn you that I'm not great at grouping even at the best of times, and I have a new kitten always wanting attention so often I don't now because she's taking half my attention.

As to gameplay, first, this is a MOBA with action elements, it is not an action game with MOBA elements. This is important to understand because if you come to it with certain expectations from third person shooters or the like you may be a bit disappointed.
Yup, that's enough to know i have no interest in this game.  In my opinion the world didn't need another MOBA, but I know a lot of people obviously like them.

Sounds good for me, because in my opinion the world didn't need another action FPS lol

I know the feeling...in the last few weeks I just got Twilight Princess HD, Far Cry Primal and The Division on top of the other games I have and need to play.  This late winter/early spring is turning into a second holiday season for games.   saywhat

How ever many hundreds of thousands of players may not be wrong, but that doesn't mean you are either.  It doesn't have to appeal to everybody. 

I think it's perfectly OK to try a game and if it's style or gameplay isn't for you recognize that it might be good at what it does, but what it does doesn't appeal to you.

Quote from: Harkonis on March 12, 2016, 07:55:28 PM

The green arrow rarely means it's an actual upgrade overall, you really should be looking at all the stats.  It's just like Diablo in that sense.  If you just go with whether the game tells you it improves 'something' then you'll end up being strangely geared or undergeared with no synergy.

Many of the best things on loot aren't even indicated by any arrows, arrows just tell you armor, firepower, stamina or electronics upgrades (and damage)

Yeah, but I guess that's my problem.  There are too many icons and numbers and systems at play that aren't really explained and something about the presentation of it just makes me not give a shit about any of it.  Unlike Diablo or a good ARPG.  I felt like The Crew had the exact same problem.
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 12, 2016, 06:22:30 PM
This game is fun, but there is also something about it that doesn't quite grab me for some reason.  I have fun playing it but don't really have much pull to go back to it when I have gaming time.

I think part of it may be the loot system.  There are just too many things to pay attention to so I don't even look at stuff, I just see "green arrow? equip".  It's kind of like The Crew where there are just so many numbers and systems and options that it kind of becomes a white noise and doesn't give me the same loot appeal as ARPGs or something.
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 3/11 edition on: March 12, 2016, 05:46:06 AM

Since Daybreak broke off from Sony it seems like it's kind of been a constant downhill.  At least from the outside.

Seems tighter.

Well it sure couldn't be much looser than the first trailer was.

They also got rid of some of the awful as all get out jokes...and yet added in a few others that were just as terrible.

This film is going to end up like Pixels. Such an utter bomb Sony has on their hands. It's not made for Ghostbusters fans (despite the attempted nods - it movie itself looks like it's trying way too hard and it's just not funny at all based on the trailers), and it's not made for non-Ghostbusters fans (as it looks like Generic Action With Some Comedy Flick #1782).

Pixels?  Really??  This seems nowhere near as bad as that dreck.

I'll take that bet...

I grew up in the 70s...I like sf...I like a good B movie...it has a good cast...you'd think it would be a laff riot, but this movie manages to get everything wrong in 90 really boring minutes. Unlikable characters, no plot whatsoever, really weak gags, poor acting -- if you think it might be so bad it's good, you're wrong. Don't waste your time. 

Oh man, that's too bad.  I had been looking forward to this one whenever it came up in my queue but may just take it out now.

Only lvl 3 because every time I try to sit and play I end up getting booted from the game. With my limited playtime, it's discouraging to spend most of the time trying to just access the damn game.

For what it's worth, there was supposed to be server maintenance last night at 10pm PST (1am EST), so if you were kicked during that time hopefully it was planned and this maintenance makes it less likely to happen in the future.

For those playing on PC, Nvidia has their usual performance breakdown of all the settings and how you can expect them to affect the game. 

Well worth looking at even if you don't have an Nvidia card I think, as I love seeing all the images for how the settings actually impact the visuals (especially the Interactive Comparisons).
100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's happening with E3? on: March 08, 2016, 10:04:58 PM
Indies have had a growing presence at E3, with the IndieCade booth in that main hall, and the art display and other indie games in the hallway between the two halls. 

I think as more of these big publishers pull out it will be much easier for smaller companies (or groups of companies) to get together and afford some of this space that has traditionally been at a premium.

where do you enter this? I couldn't even see a login or anything....

Under Agent Origins redemption.
So after redemption it said your code is below, but I didn't see any actual code. I checked my email and the code area is blank.
Is this normal? Is it just going to be auto linked to my Uplay account?

For what it's worth, they sent me a code the other day but it said it was already applied to my account when I tried to apply it.  So they may be automatically applying it now or something.

So I've read mixed things about this..  I suck at multiplayer.. Being a dad, 4 kids, gaming time is limited and I just can't compete!  So is this a decent single player experience or is it primarily multiplayer?    Figured you all would know as a google search has conflicting info.


Dback 

Based on the beta it seems like there might be plenty there for a single player experience.  Sort of like an MMO where there are other people around but you're mostly doing your own quests.

I didn't even bother to try out the PvP competitive Dark Zone stuff in beta, so I'm hoping that there is plenty of other content outside of that for us that prefer more single player focused stuff.

Yes, this has happened before. It will adapt as needed.

Except when it was downsized before that was done by the ESA itself to try and keep the number of attendees down and restrict it further to professionals who needed to be there.

This is several large companies pulling out altogether from the single largest industry event we have.  It's now potentially going to mean the messages are much more controlled by the companies and those they pay to promote it (streamers).

I think this also reflects the fact that larger publishers are having fewer and fewer releases every year, as each one takes such a significant amount of resources.
117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's happening with E3? on: March 04, 2016, 11:37:01 PM
For those curious, I edited the 2015 overhead map for the south hall to take out the companies that are no longer showing up (that we know of so far).  The console manufactuers and some other companies are in the other hall, but this is general the main entrance.

118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's happening with E3? on: March 04, 2016, 10:49:46 PM
In case you haven't been paying attention, back in January EA announced that they were going to be skipping the E3 show floor this year in favor of their own event.  It's big enough that they wouldn't show, but that also means they lose the prime spot they have had at the huge booth space immediately as you enter the convention center that they have held for many years since booth space is grandfathered in for those who have had it previously.

And now earlier this week Activision also said they won't be at E3.  And today both Wargaming (who traditionally has an absurdly large space for a company with so few games) and Disney have backed out.  And of course Konami backed out of their space when they went off to gambling land after MGS V shipped.

I'm not sure what exactly this means for E3 as a singular industry event, or the ability of press and purchasers to actually see all of the games, but it is certainly a huge movement away from the traditional way we've come to see new games, consoles and hardware. 

It might be nice for gamers for events to be more spread out and everything to be streamed or accessible to the public, but losing focus and spectacle while direction attention in many directions may not be a good thing on the whole.
119  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Ghostbusters Movie in the Works on: March 04, 2016, 07:20:49 PM
I figured I'd bring the official trailer over to this thread from the "catch all" one in case there is more discussion:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3ugHP-yZXw&feature=youtu.be

And then also post about this fan-edited trailer that does make it look better:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IDXpOX0Cp0

Of course, if you make your comedy movie look better by cutting out more dialog and jokes then that's not a good sign to me.

Yeah, hopefully that performance stuff actually helps.  I'm not too optimistic since they are sort of guarding their statement with the language of "Some performance optimizations related to hitches and stuttering" but one can hope.
