121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 06, 2015, 03:53:56 PM
You guys know me.  I'm all about story-driven games with simple mechanics.  That's why it's interesting that despite the frustration, this game is still incredibly compelling.  The prospect of going out and taming this entirely unfamiliar and alien world is absolutely fascinating, despite the headaches.  I'll admit that I'm probably trying harder than usual to like this game so I can justify my WiiU purchase.  smile  (Side note:  Thankfully, the system has proven it's worth tenfold outside of Xenoblade).  I do think there really is a good game in here...if you're willing to take the time to try and figure it all out.  Here's a good example:

Quote from: Autistic Angel on December 06, 2015, 02:04:48 PM

Just don't forget to visit town occasionally to invest your spare Miranium in one of the corporations!  If you hit your max, that network of mining probes will just sit idle until you clear up some storage space.

I have two quests in my log that require me to turn in 700 and 1,200 units of Miranium.  I thought that Miranium was either something you pick up in the field or a drop from a specific mob.  Turns out that it's a resource that is constantly generated by the mining probes you drop in the field.  If the game did ever convey that fact, I missed it entirely.  Now that I have that info, I can both turn in the quests, and look into figuring out how to "invest" it to get better gear.   While it shouldn't take a random message board post to figure stuff like that out, it's still pretty cool when you do.

As negative as I sounded, I'm not ready to write this game off yet.  Quite the opposite, actually.  I'm going to stubbornly try to figure it out and keep my fingers crossed that some of the systems click.  If they do, I can see this being a really fantastic game.

P.S.  The video I linked to in my previous post is one of a 5-video series explaining the world, the systems, and the mechanics.  I would strongly recommend watching all five, as well as reading through the manual.  
122  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 06, 2015, 05:45:44 AM
A few thoughts after around 6 hours:

-  The reviews that said the story was "lackluster" were being kind.  The story is a pile of hot cliched garbage.  All the voice actors sound like they're either half asleep or bored out of their skulls, and there isn't a single compelling thing about the entire setup.  Strange to see Monolithsoft fall down so completely in that department.  This is the same developer that created the Xenosaga games, after all.  It's not like they can't write a damn story, but this thing is just...eesh.

-  There is no handholding here.  At all.  You are left entirely on your own to figure out how to do, well, pretty much everything.  Sometimes that's fine (I think I'm finally getting the hang of combat), but other times it's infuriating.  Is there a way to heal during combat?  Hell if I know.  How many XP to my next level or Class level?  Hell if I know.  Can I change classes without repercussions, or is it essentially akin to starting over?  Hell if I know.  How are "Soul Voice" skills activated?  Hell if I know.  Where do I find the 1,2000 Minolium that I need for that quest?  Hell if I know.  I've read through most of the manual and done all the in-game tutorials, and still don't have a clue how half the mechanics work.  Trying to be patient, but it's kinda frustrating.

-  Gear doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  One of my party was using dual guns called something like "Twin Blasters".  Got a new weapon drop from an enemy called "Advanced Twin Blasters II", with a higher level requirement.  Equipped them on her, and even though every single stat was higher on the "Advanced" version, it showed that equipping it would actually drop my damage stat.  No idea why, makes zero sense.

-  The map is supposed to show a general location of where some quests can be found, but it seems to be wildly inaccurate.  I was supposed to kill 4 "Brass Squils", and there were a couple different locations marked on the map, both of which were halfway across the continent.  Turned around to grab a collectible item, only to find an entire herd of these monsters about 100 feet away...a location that had no marker on my map.

-  There seems to be little consistency in how the areas are laid out and populated.  In the space of 50 yards, you're likely to see mobs that are level 7, level 15, level 25, level 38, and level 52.  One of the very first quests I found had me searching for some dude's communicator device...which was on the ground right in front of two level 36 monsters that never moved.  I was level 5 at the time.  So, I'll just keep that one in my quest log for the next 30 hours, shall I?

-  The environment is truly stunning and beautiful, and exploring is (so far) making up for all the other frustrations.  If I can figure out how to better track and/or accomplish quests, I think that I'll still really enjoy this game...the exploration aspects are just that good.

Edit:  Found this video that explains a lot about combat, most of which is never covered in-game.  I would highly recommend checking it out.
123  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy VII remake for PS4 on: December 05, 2015, 11:01:43 PM
First real gameplay footage was released today.  More than a few things that are raising eyebrows:

-  Third person Tomb Raider-ish movement
-  Real time combat
-  Switching between party characters (they showed both Barrett and Cloud as playable)
-  Lots of new dialog (looks like they're not just using the same script)
-  Looks amazing

I'm cautiously optimistic that the won't find a way to screw up a remake of my all-time favorite game.  Encouraged with what I've seen so far.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is supposed to be delivered today. 

Any time not spent with that will be with FIFA16.  I finally figured out last night that the reason I was struggling so badly is because the game had defaulted to the hardest difficulty setting.  No wonder I only managed to score one goal in 14 games.

Went to pre-order this today, only to discover that it requires 22.5 GB of disc space.  With the one game I have loaded on the WiiU system (Mario 3D world), I only have 22 GB available.  So I'm either going to have to buy an external hard drive or order a physical copy of the game.

Stupid Nintendo.   icon_evil

I'm just glad this issue was discovered in advance and can be sorted out by Friday.

This has been a long week, and quite frankly, the only thing pulling me through at this point is the fact that we'll basically get a solid 72-hours of uninterrupted Gratching about Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Physical copy will be here Friday and the Xenoblading will commence in earnest.  Perfect timing too...I'll be wrapping up the SWTOR Sith Warrior class questline tonight.   thumbsup

It is disappointing Gratch apparently isn't getting the physical Collector's Edition.  It would've been fun to get his thoughts on the art book and some of the other stuff that comes with it.

Thought about it, but I was rather underwhelmed by the extra stuff in the Collector's Edition.  Art books and such usually end up getting looked at once, then dumped on a shelf as dust collectors until I give them to Goodwill 10 years down the road.

I find that I always end up liking the idea of these open world iOS RPG's far more than the actual execution.  Still, will be keeping an eye on this one.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on December 01, 2015, 02:24:17 PM

I am interested in this game, but the idea that there are no guides to finding where you're going and that one review I read talked gleefully about all the paper notes he had to write, old school-style, have turned me off.

I found that to be odd, especially when other reviews (like this one, starting at the 1:48 mark) mention that quests are easily trackable and even provide a little glowing marker to show you exactly where they are.  I wonder if the "note taker" reviewer had somehow turned that option off or something.

I went back and re-read the Kotaku article from earlier in the thread that threw up all sorts of red flags for me initially.  He mentions that it took 55 hours to get the mech, where other reviews have said between 15-20.  Again, makes me wonder what he was doing (or not doing) that caused it to take so long.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 01, 2015, 02:11:05 PM
Glad I checked out a few of these reviews beforehand so I know what to expect.   Sounds like there is an incredible world to explore here, but very little in the way of story.  I'm good with that, as long as I know it going in.  It's a bit odd how divisive the soundtrack seems to be.  Three of the reviews that said it's one of the best soundtracks they've ever heard, and another three that say it's one of the absolute worst.  

I'm still a bit in awe of how beautiful the game is in motion.  Looking forward to diving in.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 01, 2015, 02:37:20 AM

Most likely will be SWTOR (PC), Stella Glow (3DS), and Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) with Little B.

LOTS of SWTOR, hitting level 50 and getting close (I think) to the end of my Sith Warrior questline. 

Found out my brother is getting his family a PS4 for Christmas, and we were trying to decide between FIFA16 or Madden 16 to play together.  PSN had them for 40% off...so I went ahead and grabbed both.  I was quickly reminded why I get frustrated with sports games though.  On the "Rookie" setting, I win every game 35-0 (Madden) or 5-0 (FIFA).  The next difficulty level up, however, sees me losing by that same amount.  Neither of those options are particularly fun.  I know I just need practice to get better, but I get so frustrated when every other pass attempt is returned for a pick 6 or my striker is shanking the ball 15 feet over the goal no matter what I seem to do.  I just wish there was a "mostly sucks, but could use a little competition" difficulty level available.  Hopefully my brother and I are equally as awful, and we can at least have some fun playing against each other.

Unlocked a few more Mario Kart 8 tracks as well.  Fun stuff.

In addition to mirroring AAs thoughts on Elite Dangerous, Kentucky Route Zero, and Diablo III (although I much prefer the latter on PS4), I'd add one additional thoughts from Hrothgar's list.

Do not, not, not waste your money on HOMM3 HD.  It is the base game only because they apparently "lost" the source code for the expansions, which is where HOMM3 really started to shine.  The "HD" upgrade is negligible at best,  and I've heard reports of lots of bugs.  You'd be far better off grabbing HOMM 3 Complete from GOG.  This HD version felt for all the world like a half-assed cash grab.

I'll have to give that another look.  Tried it a few years back, and never could get it working right.   I was able to play the games, but they all looked like hot garbage. I'm sure it was a setting I just messed up somewhere. But they were damn near unplayable.

I'll be playing some more Fallout 4, but joining the movement to focus on optional content that I hate.

My character found a small patch of sidewalk with an intact hopscotch board.  Really, Bethesda?  Hopscotch paint survived a nuclear holocaust?  Assholes.  Anyway, my character's goal is to complete the hops perfectly 66 times in a row before sunset.  Her record so far is 8 because the jumping controls in this game are so fucking horrendous, she keeps stepping on the lines!  It's like the developers put this in *exclusively* to piss us off!

This game sucks and Todd Howard beats his kids.

Nice commentary.   Roll Eyes  You seem to think that people can't criticize something and still enjoy other aspects of it (or be compelled by it's plethora of entrapments).

My sarcasm meter may be off, but I'm pretty sure AA was just poking fun at the game, not doing a serious criticism.
144  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS2 emulation on the PS4 is an exciting prospect on: November 20, 2015, 06:04:55 PM
This is cool, but I'm guessing the games I want most from that era (namely Xenosaga, Shadow Hearts, and Tenchu) still won't be available.  They never have with any previous "Classics" efforts.
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/20/15 Edition on: November 20, 2015, 03:20:29 PM
I've jumped back into SWTOR.  They've made significant changes to XP and loot which allow you to basically just run through the story without having to grind through 8 bazillion sidequests.  This streamlining is exactly what I was hoping for, and I'm about halfway through the Sith Warrior story.  It's the only Bioware RPG that I never got around to finishing, and I need to rectify that.

Also been playing Stella Glow on 3DS, which is fantastic so far.  I'm still early on (2 hours), but it feels like a mash-up of Jeanne D'Arc, Persona, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.  Fingers crossed that it keeps up the positive momentum.  

Picked up Mario Kart 8 for Little B 6.6, and she absolutely loves it.  Playing co-op with her has been lots of fun.

In addition to all that, Pyperkub is coming into town for the Utah/UCLA game tomorrow, and I'm hoping to connect with him.  Contractors are also starting to finish our basement next week, so I have to try and get everything cleared out of what has become my junk collecting area.  

Damn, I'm gonna be busy.   icon_eek

Anyone know of a good local co-op 3DS game?  I'll be gifting her my old one for Christmas.

In going through my game library, I realized that Star Wars:  The Old Republic is the only Bioware game I've never finished (no, that Sonic game doesn't count slywink).  While I don't think I'll ever finish all 8 class storylines, I do want to at least finish one of them.  I've gotten to the midpoint on a few occasions, only to get bogged down in grindy sidequest hell.  Now that they've streamlined the main story to the point where you don't really need to bother with sidequests at all, I've decided to go back and try to finish one.  Did a 30-day sub, and spent most of Saturday and Sunday working through the Sith Marauder quest.  I find that I really enjoy the game when I don't feel like I'm constantly in "kill X womprats" mode. 

Played a few more Guitar Hero Live sets, and it only reinforced the feeling that I flushed $100 down the toilet on Friday.  Thankfully, Little B thinks it's a blast, which makes it not entirely a waste.

Will also dabble in Guitar Hero to eke out some value from it. I think that was a mistake. Like Gratch I really dislike the soundtrack, and it's quickly becoming apparent I don't have the reflexes I had back when the first game came out. Six year olds are evil!

After spending all of last night with it, I'm absolutely regretting this impulse purchase.  Between the "live" songs and the streaming stuff, there's maybe a dozen songs that I enjoy.  Even the songs in my favorite genre (metal) are mostly awful.  I found myself already bored with it by the end of last night.  Oh well...I've spent $100 on worse things in my life.  Hopefully Little B can get some fun out of it.

In previous Gh/RB games, I had fun playing songs, even if they weren't in my genre of choice.  Typically because they were either super catchy, or just flat out fun to play.  The soundtrack for Guitar Hero Live has neither.  Not only are most of them like ice picks in the ears, but they really aren't that much fun to play either.

It's a shame, but my own fault...I should have done more research.  At least I know for sure now that the plastic instrument phase has passed me by entirely.
151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend playlist - 11/13, Friday the 13th edition on: November 14, 2015, 12:33:06 AM
Grabbed Guitar Hero Live as an impulse purchase this afternoon (blame Little B 6.6), so I'll be spending some quality time with plastic instruments for the first time in years.  The whole "Live" career mode that sees you playing a concert from a first person perspective feels extremely gimmicky and I see it wearing thin quickly.  Especially since the soundtrack is a massive flaming pile of shite.  One of the early setlists consists of Rhianna, Eminem, and fucking Skrillex.   saywhat  Another is Good Charlotte, Avril Lavigne, and Blink 182.  Barf.  Can't see myself spending much (if any) time working through that mess.

Thankfully the "TV" mode looks like it may have some promise.  A whole host of streaming tracks from different genres, with some pretty good stuff available.  And they changed the gameplay just enough that it feels fresh again.  I was an Expert guitarist on previous GH/RB games, but this was has knocked me clear back down to Standard.  I imagine it won't take too long to get the hang of it, but it's kinda fun learning again.

Other than GH, I may get in some Dragon Age Inquisition.  I started Zodiac: Oracanon Odyssey (iOS) but I think I'll hold off until they work through some of the bugs.  It looks to have lots of promise, but it's a bit of a mess right now
152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/10) on: November 13, 2015, 11:37:10 PM
As I was walking through the store with Little B 6.6, we passed a Guitar Hero Live display unit.  She begged me for it, and I just happened to have a $100 gift card I received from work in my pocket.

I swore I was done with plastic instruments, but the persuasion powers of 6 year old daughters are strong.  Impulse purchase, here we come!   ninja
153  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: November 12, 2015, 03:41:43 PM
Zodiac:  Orcanon Odyssey released this week.  It's got a serious JRPG pedigree, including Kazushige Nojima (writer of Final Fantasy VII), Hideo Minaba, (graphics supervisor on Final Fantasy VI), and Hitoshi Sakimoto (composer of Final Fantasy Tactics...swoon).  $8.99 with no IAP (yay!).  20 minutes of gameplay is here, showing off both cutscenes, hub world, and combat.

I just started it last night, and if nothing else, it's an incredibly beautiful game.  The artwork and soundtrack are both absolutely amazing.  Combat seems pretty basic turn-based JRPG fare, but I haven't really gotten far enough in to see the nuances yet.  Heard they're working out some pretty significant bugs as well.  Any JRPG fans should keep an eye on it.

EDIT:  Sadly, I'm going to have to withdraw my recommendation until they get it patched.  Not only is the game a buggy mess (I can't play for more than 10 minutes without it crashing and sending back to the last checkpoint), but it's also unfinished.  Only three of the 12 classes are even available at this point, with no detail from the devs on when the others will come.  Stick this one in your "check back in 6 months" file, because right now all the awesome music and graphics can't justify and broken and unfinished game.

EDIT EDIT:  Not only did they release a broken, buggy, and unfinished game, they have now announced that any future content (you know, that content we all thought we were purchasing initially) will be IAP.  Nowhere did it mention this would be an "episodic" game...they decided to spring that little trap after everyone already bought it.  This will be the first time I have ever requested a refund for a game.  What a shame...this seemed to have huge potential.

Big new patch today, 3.1.  New dungeons, a whole new story arc, exploration missions, new hunt mechanics...all sorts of stuff.

I thought all of those would re-energize me, but it really hasn't.  I'm finding that as my available gaming time dwindles down further and further, I just can't justify playing a game which requires me to run the same content over and over for the loot grind.  As much as I love FFXIV and would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone, I think I may actually be done after a couple years with it.

Started up a Dragon Age Inquisition replay as a female elven ranger.  Not sure I'm entirely sold on ranged combat yet, but we'll see.  Also been feeling the pull of Diablo III again...might be time for yet another go at it.

Holy crap, I'll actually be around for a weekend and might (gasp) actually get some gaming time!  Becoming more and more of a rarity these days, I'm afraid.

Started up a Dragon Age Inquisition replay as a female elven ranger.  Not sure I'm entirely sold on ranged combat yet, but we'll see.  Also been feeling the pull of Diablo III again...might be time for yet another go at it.

King are the geniuses (or supervillans, depending on your point of view) behind the Candy Crush games.  While the acquisition isn't particularly newsworthy, the amount they paid certainly is:  $5.9 billion.

No, that's not a typo.   icon_eek icon_eek

I'm completely hooked on this game as well.  My only gripe is that the offline mode doesn't seem to work particularly well.  About half the time I play in offline, it won't allow me to click on any letters.

Other than that, the game is fantastic.
