Quote from: MonkeyFinger on Today at 03:10:39 PM

This arrives for me today. Do I recall that someone said you should just skip the tutorial?

I would recommend playing it.  You might avoid the whole "how do I get a warp point" issue I had...15 hours into the game.   icon_redface

I think I figured out the gas station issue.  The trick is selecting the Parking Lot as the map point, and not the gas pump itself.  Then once you start driving by it, there will be a big flashing "P"prompt with an arrow.  Hit x when you see that, and you'll pull into the station. 

I thought that prompt was just to pull into a parking spot, so I had been ignoring them.

If you find yourself struggling with combat, switch Wait Mode on.  I had avoided it because I thought it would slow things down too much, but I'm finding it to be just perfect.  The action is still frantic, but it gives you a chance to actually pause and plan instead of just flailing away at whatever is closest.

Its a game changer in a very good way.

Three things I just figured out, 15 hours in.  

Pro tip #1:  When you've banked lots of XP, be sure to rest at a hotel.  Hotels offer a multiplier on that XP (the one in Lestalla does 1.5x for 300 gil) that levels you up waaaaaaay faster.  I thought that hotels gave you that multiplier on future XP (i.e XP you gain the following day), and have been losing out on a ton of bonus XP as a result.  For example, I just applied 4,500 XP at a campsite with no multiplier, when I could have had 9,000 if I had simply gone to a hotel.   crybaby

Resting at campsites is for when you don't have lots of XP and need to get a stat boost from food before big fights.

Pro tip #2:  You get to the Warp Points during battle by holding the warp button (triangle on PS4).  I thought you just had to be facing it, and have been endlessly frustrated that I haven't been able to warp to them consistently.

Pro tip #3:  The Libra skill (identifies enemy strengths and weaknesses) only works in Wait mode.  (Side note:  Wait mode isn't a bad thing to switch to during tough battles.)

There you go...don't be dumb like Gratch.   saywhat

I liked their Sam & Max and Wolf Among Us series, but everything else I've tried has been meh.   Maybe their particular formula is just stale for me.

As for the driving, I was able to manually drive the Regalia as soon as it was fixed and the characters talk in the car often, so if that's not happening, it's probably a bug.

I got to the point in the story where I can manually drive now, so that's fixed.  However, it won't let me pull into gas stations, restricting me to staying on the road.   Are you able to pull the car up to a gas pump when driving manually?

There were a couple conversations when I was driving around last night.  It might be working as intended, I just expected lots car conversations more based on the reviews.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1]Final Fantasy XV on: December 03, 2016, 07:05:00 AM
Just crossed the 13 hour mark, still in Chapter 3.  A few more thoughts:

-  I should probably get back to the main quest at some point, as my party is all level 21, and the next main quest entry is level 11.
-  Not crazy about the explosion of side quests once you hit the first big city (Lestallum).  I literally have 22 quests in my log right now...I don't even know where to start.  The log doesn't do a very good job of telling you what is required either.  There's a couple that I know I have to get some ingredient or another to complete the quest, but it doesn't say what in the description.  It only tells me who I need to return it to.
-  I'm starting to get the hang of combat a little bit, but it still feels awfully button mashy.  I can figure out how all the blindstrikes and combo strikes fit together when I'm up against one or two enemies, but you typically end up fighting against 6-12 more often than not.  In those cases, it simply ends up being a "wade in and swing at anything close" rather than actually having any strategy.  It's really to lose track of Noct in the middle of the fray or behind a rock/bush/tree, which doesn't help the feeling of simply attacking at random.  I'm definitely not sold on the combat yet.
-  Is there a reason to keep any particular picture over another?  
-  The whole gas pump thing is still driving me insane.  The game won't let me pull the car up to the pump, and fast traveling to it parks me across the street about half the time, and right in front of the pump the other half.  I have no idea why it's so damn random.
-  Is there any way to tell what "treasure" we're supposed to keep and what we sell?
-  Hunts at night can fuck right off.  I've tried two of them now, and gotten my ass kicked both times.
-  Speaking of ass kicking, the enemy difficulty level is really weird.  Sometimes I have no problem taking down a mob that's 5 levels above me, but other times I get completely wrecked by mobs that are 5 levels below me.  There's a "Libra" skill that supposedly gives info on enemy strengths and weaknesses, but triggering it is completely random.  Sometimes Noct will simply stop in the middle of battle and start analyzing the enemy, but I have no idea what causes it.
-  There have been a few set pieces that are fantastic.  Stalking a particular monster through the fog before taking it down was particularly thrilling.
-  While I love the relationship building between the Chocobros and they're all very likeable, the open world structure makes it feel like there's literally no one else of any importance in the story.  It's simultaneously charming and engaging while making me rather disinterested.  I only see small bits of story between tons of exploration and side quest stuff, which makes the entire thing seem...disjointed.

Still enjoying it a lot, and it has already kept me engaged for far longer than most open world games do.  I need to strike a better balance of random exploring, side questing, and moving the actual story along, I think.

Quote from: Teggy on December 02, 2016, 01:05:03 AM

Biggest gripe for me on Xbox is load times, they can pretty bad. Pretty sure I've lost time by fast traveling sometimes.

Yeah, load times on PS4 can get pretty hairy too.  I've also had 4 crashes back to the dashboard.  Thankfully, the game autosaves a lot, so I haven't lost anything.

9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1]Final Fantasy XV on: December 01, 2016, 02:50:03 PM
I'm kinda frustrated with the Regalia (your car):

-  Most of the reviews I read said that it's worth actually driving from place to place instead of fast traveling because you get to hear interesting bits of dialog between the characters.  So far (through 7 hours), I've only heard one conversation while in the car, even on long (3 minute) drives.  Weird thing is, the characters look like they're talking (i.e. Prompto turns around in the front seat, the character's mouths are moving, they appear to be having a conversation), but there's no actual dialog.  Bug, maybe?
-  Why is the "Manual" option is always greyed out when I get into the car?  Can I not just get in and drive?
-  I was low on gas and was trying to get to the gas pump in Hammerhead.  Tried the "Navigate to map marker" option, selected the gas pump...and Ignis parked the car across the street.  I tried manually driving there, and it wouldn't let me pull into the station (I could only stay on the main road).  I eventually had to fast travel to another location, then fast travel back to Hammerhead, and on the third try, it finally put me in front of the pump.  Really strange.

EDIT:  Posted this over at GameFAQs, and it seems that a) the manual drive option doesn't unlock until later in the game, and b) mutliple people are seeing the same "looks like they're talking but no dialog" thing.  Still not sure if it's a bug or not.

Quote from: MonkeyFinger on December 01, 2016, 01:44:49 PM

So... I played the "demo" for this the other day and was thoroughly turned off and quit without getting to the end of it. Is this "nightmare having / Mario collecting / squeaky hammer bonking" sequence actually in the game?  disgust

Not at all.  That Platinum demo was just really weird, and is not representative of the actual game at all.  The actual game has zero coin collecting, zero platforming, and zero stupid "squeaky hammer" stuff.  I think that demo was just done to show off the graphics engine, and nothing more.  It literally has nothing to do with how the actual game plays.  If you want to get a sense of the actual game, go play the Episode Duscae demo.  That one is basically the first hour'ish of the game, and will give you an pretty good idea of how it plays.  Just note that the combat has been significantly streamlined from the time that demo hit (6 months ago?) to release.

11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1]Final Fantasy XV on: November 30, 2016, 03:39:48 PM
Played about 4 hours yesterday, some initial thoughts:

-  It's incredibly beautiful.  Probably the best looking PS4 game I've played.
-  I'm really glad I watched Kingsglaive and the Brotherhood anime before playing.  Knowing how the character's relationships evolved and the overarching backstory makes a huge difference.  Curious if people who didn't watch them are completely lost or not.
-  The world they've created (or at least the small corner of it that I'm currently exploring) is fantastic.  It all feels very alive and organic, a stark change from the endless hallways of XIII.
-  The combat is simple (so far), but quite fun.  I only really have two gripes.  1)  When battling multiple enemies, it becomes incredibly chaotic.  I find myself flailing at whatever is closest, without much strategy.  The camera doesn't help in this regard.  2)  I haven't quite figured out the block/parry mechanic.  I always hit square when I see the "Block" prompt pop up, but it never seems to work.  Not sure what I'm missing there.
-  I have yet to intentionally cast a spell, and don't really understand magic.  Seems kinda worthless, although I'm sure it will play a greater importance later.
-  The entire game hinges on whether or not you like the four "Chocobros".  Thankfully, I think they're great characters and seeing their relationships play out through side comments and dialogs is really fun.  
-  Most of my time so far has been spent chasing down map markers (i.e. resources, treasure chests) and doing hunts.  That's the stuff that typically drives me nuts in open world games, but it feels very natural in this one, for some reason.
-  I spent about 30 minutes with that Justice Monsters V game in one of the diners.  Had no idea what I was doing, but came away at the end of it with a Gold Bangle, which more than doubles one character's HP.  So...worth it?
-  The game will sometimes jump into combat mode (music starts, they all draw weapons, etc.), but I can't see any mobs.  Not sure why that happens, but I've seen it at least half a dozen times.
-  Speaking of mobs, there aren't nearly as many as I would have expected.  They also seem to randomly pop in out of thin air, which is strange.
-  Not a fan of the quests that ask you to find a single buried treasure (represented by a tiny glowing dot you can only see when you walk over it) in a huge area.   Will definitely be resorting to the guide for those, as it's the equivalent of finding a digital needle in a haystack.  Lame.
-  Riding around in the car, watching the beautiful scenery, and listening to old FF soundtracks is all kinds of awesome.
-  The food Ignus makes looks delicious.
-  Prompto singing the FF victory theme after battles.   The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you.

Overall, I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far.  I've kinda been ignoring the story and just exploring, which feels very strange in a FF game.  The world is just so interesting and vast, that you can't help but strap on the hiking boots and take off for the horizon.

I stayed up way too late watching Kingsglaive while the game finished downloading.  Movie was good.  I decided not to play the game while about to pass out.  Can't wait to try it tonight!

What's with the Audi product placement (in the movie)? I can't remember if this was done before in FF but it felt a bit jarring.

It's new to the series, but has been known for a while.  They announced the Audi tie-in back at the launch event.

Just picked up the game, line at Gamestop was out the door and damn near around the building.  Crazy to think that I get to actually play something that was announced over a decade ago.

Of course, PSN is telling me the 9GB patch is going to take around 12 hours to download right now, so we'll see if it even gets a look today.   icon_evil

Just finished the anime, its about an hour long.  Glad I watched both it and Kingsglaive, as they provide a ton of context that I can't imagine we'll actually get in the game...at least not at that level of depth.  Kingsglaive is about how the conlict started, and Brotherhood (the anime) is the backstory of how the gang all came together.  Both are very well done and set the stage really well.

Finished Titanfall 2 tonight, and thought it was surprisingly excellent. I'm not one who generally plays shooters, but found myself completely engrossed in this. Jumping around like Nightcrawler was nearly as much fun as stomping around in a mech, which was a pleasant surprise. A couple levels were absolutely brilliant, especially the "time travel" one. Doubt I'll touch the multiplayer, but the 7 hour campaign was definitely worth the $40.

So far, I've played quite a bit of FF XIV, trying to get current on all the story (and side story) content.  Dug waaaaaay back into the backlog and pulled up Gyromancer, a mostly forgotten collaboration between SquareEnix and PopCap from back in 2009.  Think Bejeweled meets FF Tactics.  It's really quite fun, if mostly mindless.  Played through a few more levels of Bound, and although I thoroughly enjoy the art style, it's not nearly as interesting as Journey or Flower were.  It gets rather repetitive, which is a shame.  Gave Planet Coaster a shot, and got about an hour into my first sandbox park before it hard locked.  Reloaded, and it hard locked again.  Now I can't even get past the loading screen.  Guess I'll go for a refund on that one.  Heard enough good things about the single player campaign in Titanfall 2 to give it a look, especially with a steep discount.  Just finished downloading that, firing it up now.

I've been busy.  smile

No damn idea, which is frustrating as I'll likely have lots of gaming time.  Some FF XIV for sure, trying to wrap up the story on the last patch.  Will probably hit up the massive backlog and see if anything grabs me.  Will probably run through the FF XV demo, as I never actually finished it, and it'd be good to brush up on the combat before it releases next week.  Looked at my X55 HOTAS gathering dust on top of my desk last night, so maybe I'll update Elite Dangerous and fly around for a while.

But most importantly, what happened to your tooth?!?!

Saw the ortho specialist Friday.  I had the option to do a regular root canal on Monday (today) or wait a week and do it under sedation next Tuesday.  Since my last root canal was such an utter disaster (root canal got infected, had to have oral surgery, then they had to redo the root canal.  Since the infection was so strong and widespread, none of the anesthetic they had would work.  So I basically ended up having a root canal with no numbing agent.  It was the worst experience of my life.), I opted to wait and go the sedation route.  He gave me some antibiotics which have managed the bulk of this infection, so the pain has become minimal and tolerable.  Keeping my fingers crossed for no flare-ups this week.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 11/18 pre-Thanksgiving edition on: November 20, 2016, 08:51:49 PM
Gaming schizophrenia continues, as I picked up both Bound and Life is Strange for PS4.  I'm always a sucker for artsy-fartsy games in the vein of Journey or Flower, and this one fits the bill perfectly.  Mrs. Skinypupy is also a ballet instructor, so watching the main character essentially dance through the game hits me right in the feels.  Not far enough into Life is Strange to render a verdict, but I'm struggling with the overall theme of teenage girl angst.  I've heard it's good though, so I'll keep at it.

Resubbed to FFXIV for a month as well, which should give me a mindless distraction when I need it over Thanksgiving weekend.  smile

EDIT:  Mrs. Skinypupy actually sat and watched me play Bound for nearly 2 hours, which is unheard of.  She confirmed that whoever did the mo-cap for the dance was incredible and had perfect technique.  Life is Strange is definitely not my thing.  I only got through about the first hour before wanting to simply slap every single character upside the head for being a whiny emo brat.

Tried to give the new Doom (2016) another shot, but it absolutely destroys my PC whenever I load it up.  It somehow switches everything in the system to 640 X 480 (not just the game, but the desktop display as well), and gives me some sort of floating "Input Not Support" message that I can't get rid of unless I reboot.  Spent about an hour trying to get it to work before simply giving up.

Tried Dishonored 2 again, and just really dislike it.  I just cannot for the life of me figure out the stealth.  One guy 5 feet away doesn't see me, but someone with the exact same sightline somehow spots me from 200 yards away.  After about the 100th quick save/reload, I simply just gave up in frustration.  It's strange, as I really enjoyed the first game.  This one, for whatever reason, just isn't clicking at all.

Decided to go back to Mark of the Ninja to get my stealth fix instead, and ran through the first couple levels.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 11/18 pre-Thanksgiving edition on: November 20, 2016, 03:40:51 AM
Picked up Shadow Warrior 2 and Tyranny...as if I have time for either right now.   crybaby

SW2 is fun and suitably ridiculous, but the melee FPS combat feels a little odd.  I find myself struggling to keep an eye on my targets, especially when doing the fancy supermoves.  The AOE one that hits everything in front of you when you spin is particularly disorienting.

EDIT:  After about 90 minutes with each, I think I'm going to request refunds.  Just not really feeling either one, although I can see Tyranny clicking once I can actually focus on it.  My mind is in too many other places right now.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 11/18 pre-Thanksgiving edition on: November 19, 2016, 03:55:15 PM
Yeah, I got fooled by that as well.  I actually finished the main story at 75% completion, and was surprised when I got the final checkpoint message at the 70% mark.

I'm not the kind to go back and hunt down collectibles, so I can safely say I'm done with it.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: November 19, 2016, 03:33:35 AM
ARISE!!!

So, this game obviously didn't click with me at all when it was first released.  It felt cluttered, I couldn't get into the story, I didn't like the collection elements, etc., etc.  I walked about about 1/3 of the way through, entirely disappointed.

Gave it another look for PS4, and I'm really glad I did.  Just wrapped up the main story tonight, and had an absolute blast with it.  All the stuff that bugged me the first time through didn't affect me at all this time around.  I found it to be exciting, fun, tense, and quite interesting (Raiders of the Lost Arc ripoff, notwithstanding).  Might actually end up being my GOTY, although that probably says more about everything else I've played that it does RotTR.  smile

I think I'm getting pretty close to the end of Rise of the Tomb Raider.  Even though it only says 51% complete, I'm on the second to last chapter, according to a couple walkthroughs I looked at.  (just got to the Orrery)  Hoping to finish that one up.

Will probably either putz around with Dishonored 2 or maybe SW: TOR or Guild Wars 2 as well.  Don't want to start anything major with FF XV on the horizon.

And it looks like I may be getting a surprise root canal today as well.  Woke up yesterday with a massive toothache, seeing a orthodontic specialist in an hour.  Boo.   crybaby

I agree that the single player campaign is well made. I was nervous splurging for Titanfall 2, as the focus is obviously multiplayer, and that is a part of the game I will never play. But I'm satisfied so far. I'll finish it this week, and get a healthy trade in price to soften the blow.

What...what?

Although the idea of stomping around in giant mechs absolutely fascinates me, I had ignored Titanfall 2 completely because I thought it was MP only like the first game (something I have zero interest in).  If there's a good single player campaign, I'll definitely check it out at some point, after a few price drops.

Haven't visited this neighborhood in awhile but I have to say I like this Dante guy.

You're invading my safe space.

The preview video made my brain hurt.  That all just looks so...messy. 

Then again, I'm not much of a strategy guy to begin with, so YMMV.

Still playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PS4 and am finally back to the 43% completion point where I eventually quit on the PC, trying to sneak back through the occupied village in the Geothermal Valley.  ninja

Oh, and perhaps some Tyranny.

I also went back to Rise of the Tomb Raider, and also got to the exact same spot I left off on PC.  For some reason, most of the stuff that was bugging the shit out of me the first time around didn't bother me at all this time.  About 25% of the way through.

I tried some Dishonored 2, but it wasn't really clicking.  I think I'm just "stealthed out" right now, having just come from Aragami and Thief 3.  Will come back to it a little later, probably after FFXV.
