there are plenty of games that allow you to play with and against other people with a wall between you and their bullshit.  This is why despite liking mobas I tend to play more shooters still.  I can play CoD and never hear another person who isn't on my friend's list.

It's out now, I'm playing and streaming but not sure what to expect yet. Literally just loaded it up.  I think it's like Marvel Future Fight from previews I've seen.

Just like at Qt3, it amazes me how little all the people on these forums don't like the social aspect of games.

I'm confused why someone who admits they hate action movies would even waste their time watching a movie that is very much an action movie  ninja

I took 60ish clips of the beta and will be editing those out over the next few days I hope.  Gonna post them all together in a preview form for anyone with too much time or boredom to watch slywink 

There will be some overlap of the full thing since until I edit it sometimes a cool thing happens, I record, then another cool thing and I record and it has the previous cool thing also.  This will all be removed eventually.  What I find interesting about the whole thing though is it is put together roughly in the order it happened so you can see my playstyle evolve and change a bit (granted it is missing the start where I routinely went 3-13 while relearning how to play a shooter)
130  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: September 02, 2015, 07:03:34 PM
for the most part no.  It had a lot of good ideas but was way too fast and too  much focus on air
131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: September 01, 2015, 06:19:16 PM
I played right up until it turned off.  today I wake up wishing I could play

edit: also it's Treyarch, so some small touches were done right.  Party members are a different color on minimap, you can join a friend's party without an invite, color blind settings work, etc.

Once the Black Ops beta is over I'll be getting a guy to 70 on PC.  Then my diablo time will be back on console.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 30, 2015, 11:24:36 AM
You might need to check some videos.  There are some insane wall traversal opportunities that you may be missing.

gotta get a dude to 70 on pc first for heroes unlock, then I'll likely be playing on console again

Liking it so far.  Very smooth and little lag.  Sadly I am now violently ill and cant play.  Also sadly it seems I have become lactose intolerant

they are talking about adding seasons, but not changing the fact that the game is easily hackable locally.  Seasons will be dominated by hackers.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 21, 2015, 01:05:41 AM
Patches are being released same day for all platforms

Seasons only work when the data is secure, consoles don't do that so no seasons.
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 20, 2015, 04:41:46 PM
It's definitely still worth picking up and has evolved quite a bit since launch.  I'm partial to the console versions due to the feel of the controls, the nemesis system and the gifting of loot system.  If you want to play with randoms though, PC is a better bet since there is no cheat/hack prevention on consoles.  (info is stored locally not on their servers)
143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 19, 2015, 11:34:39 AM
I'm still of the camp that quick death times are an advantage for 'less skilled' players (those who have trouble keeping the crosshairs on a target).  You have to shoot them less, it's a good thing.  This is why I find it funny when people think hardcore mode is harder.  It's so much easier to get a lucky kill by sweeping over a target.  It's a lot harder to keep the crosshair on a target steadily for a couple seconds than half a second, especially if recoil is enough.

It's a fine balance that COD gets too quickly and Halo too slowly imo.  Though Halo 5 seemed to split the difference in the beta so I'm hopeful.
144  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 18, 2015, 01:47:10 PM
the game would have to be reworked.  For the console version they had to change how many mobs are where and the overall feel of the game because on console you get a soft lock on mobs as opposed to being able to click wherever you want.  as a result some abilities are better, some are worse from one to another.  Console also has the dodge roll to avoid getting hit.

It would have been much smoother if they had just done it with gamepad in mind originally then adapted the m/kb to it like Victor Vran did imo. 

In addition to the control feeling better to me, consoles also have the gift system and the nemesis system.  Both of those are pretty awesome.  Sadly they don't store the data on their servers though, so playing with strangers (and some of my friends) is out of the question due to cheaters.  Had a friend try to convince me his legendary rings with 3 gem slots weren't hacked....


(thanks for all the gifts Cov slywink )
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 18, 2015, 11:59:17 AM
I played the first two before discovering how much less the console version hurt me and how much more control I felt I had with it.  Directly controlling the character just felt so much better to me.

Part of seasons allure is that there is always new stuff you can't get yet otherwise, part is some people like to race to the goal, some people like the incentive to start fresh since the build up is what they enjoy in the first place.

I'll be playing season 4, but only to get to 70 ASAP for the mount in Heroes of the Storm.  then back to console for me.  Blizzard's got it made this month and next with the big patch and changes to Heroes, Hearthstone AND Diablo all coming together.  Quite the draw.

so in this future world where everyone has super high reflexes, nobody can react to being under fire?  you're grasping here.

If you can actually run up a wall or slide in response to taking fire and not die doing so, lemme know.  I doubt it since every previous COD you are dead no matter what you do barring luck/lag.  I'd be fine with having the ability to boost up in the air to avoid fire too, or turn invisible and dart away, all things we don't do in real life.  The point was that there is nothing you can do in COD once you know you are tkaing fire before you die.  Even when you have a ballistic shield in COD, you can't even raise it before you die due to the ttk vs lag.

Man, who pissed in your cheerios?

The point is they designed this game for the soldiers to constantly be in motion, so it makes more sense to run up a wall or slide through a doorway when faced with fire then to stop and hit the ground. You can also float in the air and thrust in a direction to avoid fire.
nobody pissed in my anything, it just seems like you aren't even reading what I post that's all.  I never said anything about stopping or hitting hte ground.  I was talking about being able to react to coming under fire.  You'll also notice that in the video you posted not one person being shot at survives long enough to go up a wall, jump away, or break line of sight.  Even with this super high mobility, it's irrelevant.  See first, shoot, dead.

I'd be happy playing CoD4 again with the only addition being able to actually take cover when fire starts. Doesn't even need a cover system, just give me an quick adrenaline burst to the side once every now and then.  Dying before you can react is the killer of game fun for me.

 Most of these shooters are missing the type of movement people really do when under fire.  Quick reactionary dives to cover or bursts forward to the next area.

I think the fact that you can run on walls indicates they weren't really going for a realistic feel slywink


I realize you're making a joke, but this type of comment/attitude is really stupid.  That's like saying if a game has lasers or fireballs they simply shouldn't try to do ANYTHING realistic.  That's bullshit.  You don't have to go 'one shot kills you' realistic, but you can still make a game FEEL realistic with plenty of non-realistic stuff in it.  I guarantee I could make a game with superheroes feel realistic if I had the money to do so.  More importantly it would feel realistic AND fun which is something that seems foreign to anyone these days.
151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 14, 2015, 02:05:15 PM
the movement in that video looked far slower (both on the ground and in the air) than AW is.  Sprinting isn't the problem in COD, it's the actual movespeed.  If anything the unlimited sprint along with gun being available while sprinting and mantling just means you won't die because you are sprinting. 

Personally I'd rather have sprint be unlimited but limit your maneuverability, so you can't really turn and aim while sprinting.  Make it much faster and used as a burst type escape move.  Most of these shooters are missing the type of movement people really do when under fire.  Quick reactionary dives to cover or bursts forward to the next area.  At this point I doubt we'll ever get that so I'd rather at least have smooth movement which this seems to do.  The limit to sprint duration never really served a purpose to me in the first place. Sprinting was a bad thing in COD since you couldn't shoot while doing it and would die before raising your gun if caught while sprinting. 

I always felt like a third of my deaths were lag, a third were while reloading and a third were while sprinting.  Now I should die 33% less!  ninja
152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 14, 2015, 12:07:30 PM
This is my last COD unless it's amazing.  Only trying it because Treyarch hasn't had a shot yet this gen.  I'm tentatively excited since it looks like it has the mobility of AW and then some, without the crazy speed.  Bit bummed both this and Battlefront are same month though.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (8/11) on: August 11, 2015, 09:59:32 AM
I'll play Gauntlet on pc, but not ps4 slywink

I'll probably be picking up Toy Soldiers if I can find enough people for some coop.   Previous ones were quite fun that way.  Also likely to pick up the monk in Heroes of the Storm.  Rest of my time will be on the never ending stream of betas/alphas, which always seem to be more mobas anymore.

I've had great luck with the voice commands and the dance games.  I use them as exercise.

I never keep my xbox in sleep mode.  It's either on, or off.  If you're using the always on mode, you're doing it wrong.  So many games mess up with that mode as well since it doesn't re-initiate network connections properly or handle memory well in that mode.  Half the time you have to restart anyway.  Only downside is you can't download updates automatically this way and they will kick off when you turn it on if one is available.

Every time I've had to use my XB1 without voice available (I take it to my sister's and don't take Kinect) I realize just how useful the feature is as I often find myself saying the commands anyway then having to remember the other way to do it.
158  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Winders 10 and gamin' on: July 31, 2015, 12:20:26 PM
I upgraded and it's been super smooth so far, I also enjoy the xbox integration.

Moving windows from one monitor to another is a bit trickier for seemingly no reason, but that's the only issue I've had.  I'll have more time to mess with things after Gencon
