1  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: ArchAge on: August 31, 2014, 09:17:58 AM
I would be excited for this if I didn't just have plenty else to play.

A few key points and you should be fine

Be courteous to others, ignore most of what they say, no personal info, trust nobody, then reiterate ignoring people and that while it doesn't matter if they insult you, just ignore them.

I was the one 'training' my nephew on internet gaming and he was jumping in the deep end on xbox live cod at the time.  Worked out fine and he learned early to just laugh and ignore the trolls without joining in.  He was 10-11 at the time though, so a bit older.  He also grew up in a household with freely spoken curse words by his mom so I wasn't worried about exposure to language, just his response to it.

I think as long as you are able to shape the experience you'll be fine, just don't worry too much since the internet is the internet.  Kids these days will grow up with a different overall exposure to some things as a result anyway

I've become so spoiled with not swapping disks that it more than makes up for lack of resale for me.  I also realized just how little I would play most steam titles if there was a physical swap needed.

Having 2 games on disk and the rest digital showed me that simply because it took more effort, i only played the digital and the game in the drive.  silly, but true.

It's almost all the same stuff, and you save $10.  You won't need the metal case since you won't have a disk to worry about inserting.

The online one has the expansions too, no need for the physical one.

edit: only in-game stuff you will be missing is the paint job on the sparrow (which you can get next year anyway)  otherwise the maps and books and metal case.  The digital guardian edition is identical to this and $90 instead of $100

I tried all the buttons (also on a 360 controller).  Maybe only that scene is unskippable, but since it was the first one it struck a chord in me,

So what are the ramifications of this?  Does Amazon now own Harkonis?  Can I use my Amazon Prime membership to demand naked Harkonis videos?

you can always just donate straight to me for my stream and demand naked videos (you won't get them btw, but you are free to demand them if you pay Tongue )

thanks for the code, not buying this one.

Care to elaborate?  What didn't you like about it?  How much or what parts did you play? 

I like the idea of the huge open world to drive around in with tons of activities and missions, so I'll likely give it a try.  I wasn't a huge fan of the handling for some of the cars in the previous beta, but others felt fine once I got used to them.  I'm hoping these early betas are giving them enough feedback to polish things that people complain about consistently.

honestly I wasn't able to play long enough to really see much of the game.  After my first graphic hiccup got me killed (slight lag, then recovered and I went straight off road and flipped) I thought no big deal, it happens I'll just retry.  I click retry and it starts over at the cutscene and WON'T LET ME SKIP IT.  Every time I want to retry, I have to watch 10-15 seconds of cutscene followed by 3-5 seconds of 'pre-race racing' that I am not controlling.  That got old sooooo fast I just turned it off.  Unskippable cutscenes, especially at a check point and repeatable is an automatic no-go for me.  Takes an incredible game for me to look past that and this didn't have a chance to convince me before this happened.

Some people were able to buy it in the short time it was available.  MS did finally acknowledge that it will indeed be up for preorder and preloading soon and that it was a mistake that it was available earlier.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 27, 2014, 05:10:26 PM
Now it's been removed.  I can still see it since I pinned the bundle before they nuked it.  Hopefully it's just a temp removal and not like their 100% reversal of preloading like on Titanfall
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 27, 2014, 04:32:14 PM
nobody tell ATB that preordering digitally (and preloading) is going live any minute and that Destiny and the CE Destiny are already showing in the XB1 store online, both web and consoles.

I still can't figure out why you are excited for Destiny, you'll just shelve it, then come back and play when everyone else is done so you can share your stats with an empty thread  ninja

http://www.twitch.tv/harkonis/c/4960602

was almost done with my race when I realized I hadn't plugged in my streaming gear.  plugged it in and was looking at the ios desktop.  Had to restart frown  oddly the first race was 16 laps, my second first race was 21

what setup did you go with? have a link?

(also, www.harkonis.com has had it's first facelift thanks to a GT'r)
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: August 22, 2014, 01:33:43 AM
I would probably prefer yaw on the stick and the thrusters on other (hand or pedals or both).  Currently though I have just a stick so thrusters are on the hat.

TrackIR should be here on the 28th

edit: just noticed you mention the analog thumb stick.  Do the thrusters have analog control?  I thought they were on or off by design.  If so I would like that a lot.

so odd, yeah I typed it correctly.  No search result on phone or ipad and the official website still has blank link with coming soon.

the link in the review is the only way I could find it.

Just had a fun ranked fight where I ended up with double thaddius and both the guys that make him still out.  good stuff.

when I start a new character, I start on expert with no gear.  The levels below that are ridiculously easy once you know how to push buttons  ninja

the game is more relaxing on a console ATB, other than that or people who just have a better setup (audio/visual) on the console I think that's it.  If I wasn't broke and had too many games to play already I would be tempted to play it on console.  Partially because a controller is far better on my arthritis

Destiny companion app now out for iOS and Android

Seems like everything needs a companion app these days.

odd this article just came out considering the app has been out for more than a month

honestly I get the impression that dogfight precision is going to be better with kb/m, but the overall feel is superior on the stick.  Stick just feels clunky to me on aim so far.

when you get your rift, you won't need that TrackIR.... hint hint

Sooo, did anyone else notice the dlc that is being sold on Elite's homepage? I'm sure there's a game I'm forgetting or don't know about, but this may be the first time I've seen a game that cost $150/$75 (depending on which package one has purchased) , and still unfinished in beta, sell dlc. Plus, these $5.00 a pop paint jobs make the horse armor seem positively ideal. Obviously, it is one's choice to purchase the dlc or not, but it is a little off-putting to me that the dev wants to nickel and dime his customers who paid an above average price for a game that isn't even finished yet.

I'm still getting the game eventually, but now I'll feel a little icky.

instead of feeling bad about it, not sure why you wouldn't just not buy them and applaud them for allowing people who want to give them extra money to do so easily. smile

People take DLC entirely too personally.  As you said it's cosmetic only, stop whining. lol

I'll be streaming me learning this game and probably getting ganked after Gencon is over. (fwiw Archeage charged $150 to get into the alpha and it's a fully DLC f2p game, yet it doesn't piss me off at all)

They start off with a chain of somethign like 6 one shot kills, which shows they don't understand what I want in a shooter slywink
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hard West - tactical shooter in the old west on: August 12, 2014, 03:21:33 PM
fwiw, this isn't a shooter at all.  It looks fun, but when you say tactical shooter I think more Rainbow Six (old style). 

Looks awesome, it's just that the genre is different.

too much money at Gencon I'm sure

I listen to my stream slywink  No time for others yet.  Though if I could get the mumble to stream working again it'd be almost like a podcast while playing.  Mostly me telling Mikagami stuff then him asking that exact same thing a few minutes later because he didn't listen to me.  ninja
