Lots of Witcher 3 (PS4) and Chaos Rings 3 (iOS) for me.

So, it's exactly like the first game then?  A beautiful world to explore, a shit-ton of fetch quests, and a wholly underwhelming and sparse story.

I'm not expecting Witcher-levels of character building, so I'll probably be OK with that if the rewards for world exploration is well-done (which they definitely were not in the first game).

If you enjoy endless runners at all, they just released a Tomb Raider flavored version that is really pretty awesome.  It adds a ton of additional elements, such as vehicles, shooting enemies, parkour, wall runs, vine swinging, tightroping, etc., etc.  It's far more difficult than your standard Temple Run, and the production values are off the charts.  The core gameplay isn't anything new, but there are enough new things to do and see that make it really quite fun.

Lara Croft:  Relic Run

I'm enjoying this a lot, though there have been a couple of cheap feeling deaths because you can't see what's coming fast enough.

Thanks for the recommendation!

I swear, 90% of my deaths are due to missing the wall runs.

Geralt just had his first "bow chicka bow wow", which ended...poorly.  

Spoiler for Hiden:
I got busy with Kiera after a lovely dinner date and an interesting retelling of the Cinderella story.  No less than 5 minutes later, I decided to follow her to Fyke Isle to see what she was after. We argued over her plan to sell a "cure" for a disease to Radovid...an argument which ended when I cleaved her in half.

Guess he's just not... icon_cool...cut out for romance.
that ended pretty differently in my game.

It actually wasn't my intention at all, and I wasn't crazy about how it all unfolded.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Geralt and Kiera argued about the "cure" she was creating.  Kiera thought Radovic would buy it from her to help to populace at large, Geralt thought Radovic would bastardize it into some sort of biological WMD.  Kiera said something along the lines of "I'm going to take it to him no matter what you say", Geralt responded with "I won't let you do that"...and next thing I know I'm in combat with her.  Seemed a bit extreme, but I didn't feel like reloading a save and figured I'd just see what the fallout is.

In my game
Spoiler for Hiden:
I managed to talk her into going into hiding in Kaer Morhan and took the notes off her as well.

That's something along the lines of what I though would happen...was surprised at her actual response

Yeah, I finally got to start last night and it's been the most glitchy experience on my PS4 to date. 3 crashes to PS4 main screen, skipping sound on the headphones. Thank goodness I haven't had a save corrupted yet, because that's usually the kind of thing that makes me give up on a game for good.

That sounds more like a problem with the PS4 itself. Is it properly ventilated? Is there dust in the fans? Have you tried booting it in safe mode and scanning it?

I've probably played the game for about 30 hours so far, and apart from the two autosave bugs (that have now been fixed in this patch, apparently), there have been no crashes. Sound is perfect both with and without headphones.

This is the only game I've ever had issues with on my PS4.  If it was a system issue, I would think it would be manifest in more than just a single game when everything else runs without a hitch.
129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How the gaming market is changing on: May 27, 2015, 02:01:15 PM
Saw a very interesting report about the revenue streams for different games in 2015.  Some fascinating data there, including:

-  Global games market is $74.2 billion, triple what it was a decade ago.
-  Mobile gaming comprises the largest share at $22.3B
-  Free-to-play MMO brings in $8.7B while Pay-to-play is at $2.7B.
-  Digital console still has a long way to go compared to retail ($3.1B vs $19.7B)

I haven't had a chance to dig into the actual report yet, but those are some fascinating numbers.  Can't say I'm thrilled at the huge shift to mobile (especially given the recent announcements from Konami and Squeenix, but I can better understand now why they've made that decision.

Hoping this patch fixes the multitude of technical issues I've run into the last couple days.

-  Crashed back to the PS4 dashboard twice.
-  Three "corrupted save" messages (thankfully I keep 4 rotating saves).
-  Stuck on the terrain multiple times, requiring reloads.
-  A strange glitch where enemies would only get about halfway through their death animation, then stop moving (which lead to some hilarious scenes of a half-dozen bandits - some hewn in half - seemingly frozen midway to the ground).
-  Save games not loading.
-  Etc., etc.

I also have this annoying glitch where about 10% of the time I enter combat, Geralt forgets to draw his sword and starts going in with bare fists.  I can't for the life of me tell what causes it, but it's annoying in it's randomness.  I've even seen him actively sheath his sword when entering combat.  Strange...

EDIT:  Doesn't look like it's available here yet.  I'm still running the 1.01 version, did a "Check for Updates" and it says I'm running the most current version.

133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 26, 2015, 12:16:24 PM
A couple quick questions/thoughts:

-  I assume that given the scope of this game, severely outlevelling the story quests won't cause any issues, correct?  I've spent most of my time in Velen on side quests and exploration, and am just about level 11.  My main quest steps are still around level 6.

-  What's the consensus on selling vs. deconstructing?  I assume selling is the better option (especially when you finally get to vendors that have some $$), but maybe there are some significant advantages to deconstructing that I'm missing.

-  What's everyone doing for armor:  Heavy, medium, or light?  Most of the best armor I've found has been light, but I'm loath to spend a point on the light armor skill, just in case I find a bitchin' heavy piece down the road a ways.

-  I assume the weapon/armor add-on runes get more powerful as the game progresses?  I have yet to find anything that adds more than 2-3% change in sign intensity or damage.

-  Just hit my first "major" city last night (Oxenfurt), and the notice board there opened up a whole host of new locations and quests.  Man, this game is just so damn huge.

-  Riding through a small village and stopped to listen to conversation between a couple peasants.  Realized they were talking about a little girl I had saved during a quest some 5-6 hours ago and I pieced together that she was from that village.  What a cool thing to include.

Witcher 3 has its hooks into me, big time.  Can see this easily being my GOTY if it keeps up this level of awesome throughout.

Played a little Tera, but it's going to tough to pry myself away from W3 for he next little while.
135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 25, 2015, 10:56:34 PM
Rather annoyed by failing quests with no indication as to why.  Picked up one in Velen to find some girl's fiance in the woods.  Decided to check out a couple markers nearby before tackling the quest, one of which was a bandit camp.  As soon as I cleared the camp, I got a "Quest Failed" message.   icon_evil  I can only guess that her husband was one of the bandits that I killed, but it seems like a better option would have been for me to be able figure that out (i.e. a note in his loot) and go back to tell her. 

Failed one earlier where I was apparently supposed to chase someone on my horse, but got the "Quest Failed" message the moment I got control back after the cutscene.

Oh, and whoever designed the swimming controls needs to be given 40 lashes.  They're absolutely awful.
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 25, 2015, 06:22:23 AM
This game has perhaps the most fully realized game world I've ever seen.  Everything about it - right down to every small corner - feels like it was hand-crafted with immense detail.  It feels like a truly living, breathing, real place.  It's quite astounding, especially given the massive size and scope of the game.  I've spent probably 6 hours now in Velen, and am still just barely scratching the surface.  The amount of question marks on the world map is actually somewhat comical.

While not perfect, I have a feeling that Witcher 3 is one of those "landmark" games that will be remembered for simply raising the bar for every RPG that comes after it.

BTW, is there a way to see how long you've been playing on PS4?  Save files don't indicate anything.   icon_confused

At least on the PC version you can find that on the inventory or character pages, you select player stats (default key C. On PC) and it shows up on the bottom of the next page.  No idea if the PS4 control scheme allows for this but you could take a look.

These stats are available via the character screen on PS4 too, but the playtime appears to be bugged. As far as I can tell, it's counting time spent in suspend mode as actual playtime.

Makes sense...I was wondering why it was saying I had played for 4 days.  

Just got to the second area (Velan) last night...Holy Overload Batman.   eek

In the first area, be sure to search out everything on the map. You will find better armor and weapons and should get at least one blueprint for a silver sword that will make the griffin fight a bit easier.  you will also get a handful of ability points which can help a lot early on and with how slow you level up.  FWIW, with my gear, I was able to take out a camp of level 9's at level 4 with careful fighting and preparation. 

Finished the first area this afternoon, and located everything except for one marker.  For the life of me, I couldn't figure out how to get into this castle/fortress-thing that was up on top of a hill.  Took me a while to figure out where to get the mats for the bombs, but clearing out the monster lairs gave some pretty great loot.  Now to just find a merchant who will buy this stuff for anywhere near what my inventory screen says it's worth...

Really digging the main story and the sidequests.  They're all so incredibly well-written and acted that I don't feel like I need to skip any of them.  So far, Witcher 3 is a huge improvement over the previous two titles, imho.

I started on The Witcher 3 tonight, but didn't really enjoy it so far.  I'll have to go back I'm sure, but it felt like a slow start and basic movement and things just felt kind of clunky and unresponsive.

Probably also some Marvel Heroes, maybe some Carmageddon now that it's really released.  And who knows what else.

Stick with it.  I had the exact same initial reaction, but I've gotten used to it and the game has really started to shine.  The clunky movement is still my biggest gripe, but it gets more livable the longer you play.
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 23, 2015, 02:46:36 PM
Put in a couple more hours last night, and it has finally clicked.  Took me a while, but I finally figured out the map and quest structure and have started to get the hang of combat.  I still hate Geralt's clunky movement (especially when indoors), doubly so on the horse, triply so underwater.  I've also had some quest wonkiness, such as the one where I was apparently supposed to chase someone on my horse after a cut scene, but I immediately got a "Quest Failed" message the moment the cutscene ended.

My big question is about gathering materials and looting chests/sacks/chests/etc.  There is SO much...stuff, how do we tell what's important?  Is it like Skyrim where every sack and barrel is full but you can ignore most of it, or should you be trying to gather from every plant you see?  I'm kinda just ignoring it for now, as it would drive me nuts otherwise.

Sheesh, do I have to do everything around here?  slywink

I'll be spending some more time with Witcher 3 on PS4.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I can get the hang of combat and start enjoying it a bit more.  I've also (rather inexplicably) gotten back into Tera.  Fired it back up when it came out on Steam with a new class earlier this month, and have been having more fun with it than I expected.  A few weeks of double XP doesn't hurt either.

Played for about 90 minutes and mostly came away feeling overwhelmed...both good and bad.  The world is absolutely incredible and beautiful, and there's really nothing that compares.  There's just so much...stuff.  Things to harvest every three steps (do I really need all those?  Am I going to gimp myself 20 hours later because I'm skipping them?), 80 bazillion crates/barrels/chests/carts to loot.  Quests and markers popping up everywhere you look.  I need to figure out a way to approach it all that will keep my OCD tendencies in check.  smile

I'm also quickly realizing that I really, really, really suck at combat in this game.  I've already gotten my ass handed to me three times, and I'm playing on the easiest setting.  I just can't seem to get the timing right on dodging or blocking, and get pretty quickly wiped if there's more than one enemy.  Doesn't help that one of my biggest gripes from the previous game still remains...Geralt moves like a gorram tank.

Out of town for the next couple days, hope to get a chance to really dig in over the weekend.  Fingers crossed...

I picked up my (pre-ordered with good reason)  icon_wink copy at Best Buy today and part of the pre-order bonus was the "steel case" edition. However, the BB guy informed me (very apologetically) that they shipped the steel cases separately from the actual game. So it was kind of weird in that I got the game in a standard case and a bonus empty steel case (which is really bad ass though).

Really sucks I'm going to be out of town Thursday through Tuesday, as I'll miss an entire holiday weekend of play time. Hope to get at least a few hours in tonight and tomorrow night though.

That's still better than my pre-order experience with GameStop.  I put in my pre-order there last week because I had a $50 gift card.  There was supposed to be some sort of bauble (key chain, I think) that came with pre-orders.  Picked up my game this afternoon, and he didn't give me one.  I asked about it and was told "They only sent us about 20 of them, so they went fast."  I asked if that was standard, and the clerk just kinda shrugged and said "sometimes".  No apology, no "can we get you you something else" or offer of a small credit...nothing.  I decided not to raise a stink because it wasn't something I cared about at all and I was in a hurry to get home, but I would have been irritated if it was.  

Funniest part was the regional manager standing right next to him "auditing" the transaction.   Not a word from him either.  Basically just a giant "sucks to be you" because I apparently wasn't lucky enough to be one of the first 20 people in the store today.

And they wonder why I don't shop there much anymore.

So I finished up Knights of Pen & Paper 2 today, and came away fairly disappointed.  The humor was occasionally good and the retro-graphics were neat, but there was nothing terribly engaging about the whole thing.  I never found a crafting recipe other than the initial ones that were provided, and experimenting never came up with anything.  There wasn't really much need to grind, and the only bosses than gave me any sort of trouble were the last two.  There were hardly any options available to improve the game room.  Things were poorly explained in-game, or just not explained at all.  I only found one additional class. 

All in all, it felt like a game that was released waaaaaaay too early.  I've heard they pushed the Steam release back to November, and I'd certainly recommend waiting until then.  It's not a terrible game as-is (I still put about 8 hours into it), but it's not one I'd highly recommend either.  C+ grade, if I'm being generous.

Hopefully there's a log somewhere, otherwise I'll just randomly start turning things down / off from the defaults it picked for me. disgust

ps. Did this both before and after I updated to the latest "just in time for Witcher 3" Nvidia drivers.

Given my PC's finicky nature, issues like this are another thing that pushed me to the PS4 version.

Holy shit.  Welcome back dude!  Haven't seen you around in ages.  thumbsup  Both Fearless Fantasy and KoP&P2 are fantastic iOS games.

I finished the campaign in ESO last night.  I played it like a big single player game that happens to have other people running around, and it's fantastic that way.  I couldn't speak to any of the MMO aspects (PvP, raids, end game content, etc.), but would highly recommend it as a solo PvE campaign.  Probably my favorite ELder Scrolls game, took me about 100 hours to finish.

A couple of very interesting games released this week that I'm enjoying:

Fearless Fantasy.  A unique take on the RPG formula with a very unique gesture-based battle system and some completely insane artwork.  Spent an hour or so with it last night and it's very intriguing.  TA liked it as well, 4.5/5.  Only downside are the ridiculously awful cutscene graphics which look like they were drawn by a 4-year-old.

Knights of Pen and Paper 2.  Same concept as the previous game, but with lots of refinements that make it more fun to play.  Still not 100% sold on it yet (it's SO grindy), but it's definitely fun.

So of all the things I could have played after finishing Pillars of Eternity, I fired up Typing of the Dead: Overkill. I was going through my backlog and that was about the quickest win I could find.  icon_biggrin

That game's a vulgar and ridiculous blast.

My enthusiasm continues to wane for Elder Scrolls Online, but I would really like to at least finish the main story.  I think I'm getting pretty close (just hit level 44), so I may try to push through and get that wrapped up.  Tera released on Steam this week with a new Gunner class.  Might be a good reason to give that one another look.  I played it into the mid-levels a couple years ago and quite enjoyed it.  I also might get around to actually figuring out how to play Age of Wonders 3.  I've started it a couple times, but it's always been when I'm really tired and not in the mood for something that complex.  The icon is sitting on my desktop taunting me...I need to give it a legitimate shot.

Stayed up way too late but hit max level on ESO tonight.  smile  Got a few more quest areas to wrap up in Coldharbour before tackling the final quest. 

Spent an hour or so with AOW3 as well...I just don't get it.  Was cruising along in the tutorial pretty handily, right until I came up against my first enemy in a city.  All of my armies got their asses kicked by that dude in short order.  No idea what I'm doing wrong, but not really all that interested in figuring it out right now.  Too busy with other games.

I played quite a bit of Neverwinter when it first came out, and have really been wanting to go back and give this class a try.  Unfortunately, for some reason Neverwinter refuses to play nice with my new PC.  It simply freezes up at the initial loading screen every time.  frown


Have you tried using the "Safe Mode" and "Force Verify" options in the launcher?  Even if the game doesn't load, that may produce an error message that clarifies the problem.

Yep, tried that last time and it didn't make a difference.  Still just hard locked on the title screen until I killed it in the task manager.  Trying a fresh reinstall right now, will see if I have any better luck.

EDIT:  Reinstall worked.  smile  Think I'm going to try and finish up ESO before diving into something new though.

Also, the Hunter Ranger class is so much fun

One of these days I'll actually deal with their support team and try to get it fixed.
