Lots and lots of Final Fantasy XIV.  Hoping to finish leveling my sub-class to 15 tonight (currently at Cool so I can switch over to Bard.

Spent all weekend with this, dinged 44 last night.  Still loving running the dungeons and actually looking forward to them, which is something I never thought I'd say.  Leveling the sub-classes is still a bit of a drag, but not nearly as painful with a DPS as it was for a tank.

This game is going to be my main focus for the next couple months, as I want this to be the first time I've actually gotten to the end of a main story quest in an MMO.

A couple new games this week that I'm enjoying

Darkin - A straight up Dungeon Raid clone with a vampire theme.  A no-brainer for DR fans, or anyone who enjoys match-3.

Table Tennis Touch - A fantastic replication of real table tennis.  Control is great, and it looks and sounds awesome with fully rendered arenas and tables.

If I were to choose my top 5 metal albums of the past decade, Agalloch's "Marrow of the Spirit" and Vallenfyre's "A Fragile King" would be numbers 1 and 2 (respectively) on that list.  Which means today was like metal Christmas, with new albums from both bands dropping this morning.  

Vallenfyre - Splinters.  While metal "supergroups" are more often miss than hit (*cough* Barren Earth *cough*), Vallenfyre absolutely breaks the mold.  Masters of their craft, these members of My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, and At The Gates have created something incredible here.  Their particular brand of doom/crust/death metal was on brutal display on their first album, and "Splinters" just ratchets everything up to 11.  This album is a huge, plodding, wounded beast leaving a howling wake of destruction as it crushes everything in it's path on it's way to death.  Heavy as fuck with brutality to spare, this thing is just...massive.  I'd be shocked if it didn't end up near the top of most of the "Best of 2014" lists come year end. Check out Odious Bliss for a taste.



Agalloch - The Serpent and the Sphere.  I've been listening to this one quite a bit (via the NPR Stream) over the last week.  It's a bit of departure from Agalloch's usual sound, but still retains their hallmark of meticulously crafted soundscapes with a combination of brutality and beauty.  It's not going to top "Marrow of the Spirit", but there's not much that can.  A solid 8/10.

Just finished DLing th Wildstar beta, will give that a shot.  Along with some FF XIV, I'm sure.

Was wholly unimpressed with Wildstar.

I really liked FF XIV when I played a tank.  I absolutely love it now as a DPS (Archer).  Even the group dungeons - which were a source of stress and frustration as a tank - are tons of fun when I just have to sit back and shoot at things and not worry about managing aggro.  They also give a ton of XP and unique gear, which makes the PvE elements that much easier.  I'm advancing much quicker than I was just doing leves and story quests, and am typically 3-4 levels ahead of the story quests instead of having to grind out levels just to get to the correct level.  Put a ton of time into it this weekend.

doesn't seem too impressive, and half of them have already been announced or expected.

I'm real disappointed in this console generation.  I was ready to drop $400-$500 on a new console.  Something I never do.  I usually wait 2-3 years, because at the time I couldn't afford it.  This year, I was ready, and there's absolutely nothing to play.  Anything I want to play can be played on the PC.  The only thing I'm missing is MLB The Show 2014.  I held off during Christmas.  I thought maybe by June I'd get it.  Nope, still nothing.  I think both companies failed on their game lineups.  Not enough exclusive content as well. 


Same here.  I've got the money set aside for one,  but there hasn't been a game that has interested me enough to actually pull the trigger yet.  That lineup doesn't do much to change my mind.

Set Child of Light to download this morning, so I'll be jumping into that tonight.  Probably spend some time with the new Star Wars Pinball tables on iPad as well. I'm trying to generate the energy to push through Bravely Default (I hate leaving a game I've put 40+ hours into unfinished)...we'll see if that happens.

I started playing FF XIV again last weekend, but have already run up against the forced grouping wall.  Waited for over an hour to find a group for the initial dungeon last night, only to have a tank that Leroy Jenkins'ed every mob and died within 30 seconds.  He then went AFK, forcing the entire group to requeue.  As much as I love 99% of the game, I don't have the time or patience to deal with the 1% that is complete bullshit, so I'm ditching it.  If there were a way to run dungeons with bots, it would be the perfect MMO.  frown

OK, so I lied.  smile  Even though I said I was quitting, I kept having an itch to play FF XIV.  Decided to queue up for the group dungeons and just let it sit while I messed around with Child of Light (which is quite good).  Lo and behold, I actually got into all three of the sub-20 dungeons pretty quickly, and had really great groups for all three.  It's amazing how much more fun the dungeons are when you don't have the pressure of tanking, which I wasn't particularly good at.  I actually (gasp) enjoyed running them with these groups...something I didn't think possible!

I also got a random invite to join a Free Company (guild), which turns out to be a bunch of pretty cool folks.  So I'm back in the thick of this MMO, having a blast.  Got an Archer up to level 25, just got my mount, and will be working on getting a sub-class up to 15 so I can become a Bard.  Fun times.  smile

Put in about an hour and a half tonight...what a wonderful game this is.  The artwork, style, world, and music are absolutely beautiful and you can tell the entire thing is a labor of love.  The whole rhyming thing doesn't always work, but it's not terribly distracting.  Still getting hang of combat (playing on Normal), but having to juggle a number of elements (slowdowns, interrupts, attack vs. defend, etc.) makes it pretty compelling. 

So far, so good.

Played half a dozen (or so) rounds of each of the new Star Wars pinball tables.  Initial rankings and thoughts:

1.  Han Solo.  A solid mix of ramp work, targets, and special events.  The target progressions for special events are laid out in a way that is challenging, but not impossible.  Always something cool to do.
2.  Episode 4:  A very solid table that is clearly laid out and easy to understand.  Tough though, especially since they decided to give this one the same "bouncy ball" physics as the ROTJ table.  This is probably the best actual table out of the four new ones, but the crazy ball physics take it down a notch.
3.  Droids:  A ramp-heavy table with a bazillion targets that are really tough to hit.  One of those tables that you spend a ton of time throwing the ball around the ramps feeling like you're making progress, when you really aren't.  Reminds me a lot of the Avengers table, which I wasn't crazy about either.
4.  Masters of the Force:  I just don't get this table.  I've read the table guide multiple times, but I just don't really get what I'm supposed to be doing.  The holocrons are damn near impossible to hit in the brief windows allowed, and the table layout feels very cramped and it's never very clear what you're supposed to be shooting for.  My opinion on this one may change as I figure it out.

Quote from: YellowKing on April 30, 2014, 07:07:17 PM

It's a mix for me.

I will pre-order AAA games that I have a very high confidence in what the review scores will be. This would include something like Watch Dogs or Titanfall.

Everything else I buy close to release falls in the 'wait for reviews' pile. Since most reviews come out slightly before launch, this means I may still pick up a title on launch day provided reviews were stellar.

Then you've got the stuff I wait on. This would be games that may have gotten good reviews but that I'm less interested in, or stuff that I can afford to pick up when they're cheaper and I have more time. Since Steam, a LOT of PC titles fall into this category. Unless it's an absolute must-have AAA title or a multiplayer title/MMO that is best experienced when the hype is the highest, I find myself more and more willing to delay gratification until price comes down.

Pretty much this.

180  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Back into the iOs realm - your top 3 games? on: April 28, 2014, 07:35:36 PM
A couple recommendations off the top of my head:

-  If you like pinball at all, try either Pinball Arcade (for re-creations of actual pinball tables) or Zen Pinball (for crazy tables using licensed properties like Star Wars, Marvel, etc.).  At last count, I've put over 150 hours into Zen Pinball, and that's only going to increase with the release of 4 new Star Wars tables tomorrow.   thumbsup

-  Final Fantasy Tactics:  War of the Lions HD is a brilliant port of the PS1/PSP game (I think it's the best version of all the platforms).  The recent port of FF 6 is also very well done.

-  The port of Star Wars:  Knights of The Old Republic is suberb.  

-  Nimble Quest is a blast.  it's the old "Snake" game from mid-90's cell phones, combined with an RPG.

-  Lords of Waterdeep is a perfect port of the board game.

-  There are tons of CCG games available.  Hearthstone, Ascension, Magic, Dominions, etc.

-  Threes is one of the best casual games available.

-  Oceanhorn is a Zelda clone that got excellent reviews.

-  Bloodmasque is an Infinity Blade-esque fighter that is far more fun than it has any right to be.  One of my favorite iOS titles from last year.  While not really my thing, Infinity Blade 2 is certainly worth a look.

Touch Arcade has a Top Reviews page where you can filter through the best reviewed games.  I find them to be the best iOS review site, although I do think they tend to score a bit high.

And I miss CK as well, but apparently ATB is quite happy he is gone though.

I wouldn't say happy. I'm glad he's okay, but I didn't like 15 new threads started by him every day...

So what if he posted a lot?  How was that in any way, shape or form causing you any real problem?

Ceekay was a long time member who took a lot of crap for simply being enthusiastic.  Now he's gone and GT is the lesser for it.

I agree.

I agree as well, but I also don't think GT necessarily did anything to drive him away.  I could be wrong on that (I'm basing that opinion on a couple very brief online interactions with him outside of GT), but it sounded more just like he needed to refocus.

Spent about 4 hours with Dark Souls 2...enough to confirm my suspicion that it simply isn't a game for me.  I have enough stress IRL, and don't need my hobby (which I'm doing in order to relax) causing my blood pressure to spike and controllers to be thrown.  Glad I at least tried it though, might come back to it someday when the Wonder Twins are a little older.

Tried again to get into FFX HD and it's simply not happening.  I don't know if it's the fact that I've already played it twice or that it hasn't really aged all that well, but I simply find myself bored with it. Which is odd, as I was really looking forward to giving it another shot with this HD release.  Oh well...

Since nothing else was pulling at me, I decided to re-sub to FF XIV for 30 days.  Thought about doing some sub-class levelling on my main (lvl 40 Warrior), but the prospect of grinding levels doing nothing but Levequests just made my head hurt.  Instead, I rolled up an alt to see how I do with a DPS class.  Took an Archer up to 16, and am having a blast with it all over again.

The devs aren't punishing you just to be mean. They're punishing you because you suck at their game.  icon_twisted

I get that.  It just seems backwards to me to make a really hard game, and if someone sucks at it - even just a little bit - to then make it even harder.  I know, I know..."Welcome to Dark Souls"

Then again (as AA mentioned in another thread), I'm not really the target audience for this game.  It's a completely foreign concept to me, but apparently there are lots of gamers who enjoy a kick in the face along with their complimentary kick in the nuts.  I'll quit bitching now and give it another couple hours to see if it's worth continuing or if Dark Souls 2 is nothing more than an increased danger of monitor damage due to flying controllers.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Dark Souls 2 on: April 26, 2014, 09:20:53 PM
I'd love to hear the developer rationale behind losing a chunk of your overall HP meter every time you die.  

Dev #1:  "So, let's say a player is having a tough time getting past a particular enemy or area.  Losing all their accumulated souls is a pretty fair penalty for dying, but what else can we do to make it challenging - yet fair - for them?"
Dev #2:  "I know!  Let's take away some of their overall HP every time they die.  That way, it'll just get incrementally more and more difficult to progress the more they die."
Dev #1:  "Brilliant!!"

I'm really kinda liking the game now, except for that one single mechanic...which I think is absolutely asinine.

Didn't see another topic about DS2 (which I thought was odd), so I'll just post in this one.  Playing the PC version, and after a couple false starts, I think it's starting to click a bit.  A couple quick questions:

-  Is there any way to compare the vendor's equipment to what I already have?
-  Which is the better option for the early game:  Getting better equipment or leveling stats? 
-  I joined a |Covenant of Blue"...what the hell does that do?

Game Informer has put up two special edition podcasts dedicated to Dark Souls II.  I haven't played the game for myself, but I've listened to them both.  Here's what they sound like:

Quote from: Anyone Talking About Dark Souls II
"Man, I'm getting murdered constantly.  Where can I pick up better weapons?"

"There's a white knight near the beginning who drops a really great sword.  Start with that."

"Oh, I think I already got that and leveled it up at the blacksmi-"

"Oh god!  You leveled it up?"

"Er...yeah."

"Leveling up the White Sword triples the hitpoints for every boss in the game.  You're really going to have grind for souls to power up your character now."

"Wait, you can level up your character?  How?  It isn't in any of the menus!"

"You have to talk to Jamelgema three times.  This will cause a Desecrated Wight to spawn near the third dead end in Blaskberg.  Kill the Wight, pick up the Christened Jade it drops, and return to Jamelgema when your system clock ends in a four.  This will grant you the ability to level up your character."

"Oh."

"If you speak with Jamelgema a fourth time before slaying the Wight, she will be reminded of her dead son Smythe.  This isn't reflected anywhere in her diaglogue, but it curses your character to lose one random attribute point every eighteenth time you swing a weapon."

<sigh>  "Awesome.  Guess I'll have to start over.  Again."

"No no no!  This is actually a good thing because it *also* causes Ebony Salamanders to begin appearing in the Glass Forest.  The Grey Ossuaries they drop are the only way to upgrade your armor past Tier C without invoking the wrath of the Crimson Snipe."

"....what?"

"Why do you think so many players are stricken by Witherot Syndrome after reaching the Hinterland Delta?  Once the Crimson Snipe is on your trail, the only hope is to burn Sage Epiphanies at every bonfire you visited since the last full moon."


And so on.

 icon_lol icon_lol  Yeah, that about sums it up.

I am sincerely glad there's an audience for games like Dark Souls II -- it's pretty much the craziest shit happening outside of EVE Online -- but I am definitely not in the target demographic.

-Autistic Angel

Honestly, I'm not the target audience either.  But I have a hard time ignoring a game in a genre I typically enjoy (fantasy RPG) that is getting consistent 90%+ reviews.  Figured I'd give it shot and hope it clicks.  If it doesn't, what's another game to add to the backlog, right?

Quote
Listen. The whole point of those games is the punishing difficulty. If you're angry now and don't adjust your perceptions you are going to be miserable.  Also, the makers explain nothing so expect to have a walkthrough and FAQ handy at all times.

I very consciously adjusted my paradigm for this game before I even started.  I knew it was difficult and that I would die a lot.  Since I missed the "tutorial tunnel", I just figured that first Ogre enemy was something I was going to have to figure out how to beat.  Did I think it seemed ridiculous?  Absolutely, but I figured that was all just a part of the game.
190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 4/25/14 on: April 26, 2014, 01:41:55 PM
Thanks all.  I somehow missed the tunnel past the first bonfire.  Since there was nowhere else to go, I just figured I had to beat that big Ogre thing to proceed.  So not only did I spend an hour getting my ass kicked by something I shouldn't have been fighting in the first place, but I also missed out on the entire tutorial.   I felt bad ragequitting in the first hour last night, but now I think it's at least justified.

Hopefully this isn't an omen of things to come...

I've got so many hundreds of hours of shows to get my fiancee caught up on, and neither of us have seen Farscape.  So between Bab 5, BSG and Farscape, what order should we watch em?  I've seen the first two myself.

I'm enjoying Farscape much, much, much, much more than BSG.  If you can suffer through a couple rough initial episodes, it becomes all kinds of awesome.

Can't speak to Babylon 5...never gave it a look.

I'm trying to temper my excitement (especially after how disappointed I was with Ni No Kuni), but this game looks absolutely wonderful.

Just watched the "Looney Tunes" episode of Farscape.  That might be the most delightfully batshit insane 45 minutes of TV I've ever seen.   icon_lol

I really want Dark Souls 2 but considering how bad I sucked at Dark Souls 1 I don't see myself paying full price for it. So nothing for me this week.

Pretty much this.  I'll try Dark Souls 2 someday, but not at full price.
