121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How long do you give a game to capture your interest? on: October 22, 2015, 02:28:07 PM
less as I get older, but it generally depends on how my brain THINKS I will like it too.  If a game has tons of features and concepts I think I'll like, I'll stick it out longer.

1 hour isn't enough for anything that isn't in your face action.  Anything story based likely takes longer to get rolling since they don't have the pacing of a movie.  Anything RPG/campaign based typically takes time to show the meat of the game system as well.  A lot of games an hour is barely enough time to figure out how to play, let alone how to play well or what the depth of the game is.

I do no longer care about playing games I'm not actually enjoying.  I don't care how far into a game I am, if I stop having fun I shelve it.

edit: the number of games I hated/disliked the first hour and ended up loving them proves I just can't use 1 hour as the limit.  Even within a game some things take time to appreciate.  Playing Vermintide lately, got a new weapon and took it out for a spin. Hated it and thought it was useless for the greater part of the first mission, now it's one of my favorite weapons in the game.

already have Vermintide, waiting for XB1 Rebel Galaxy

That would be an awful feeling, to feel like you could have done something whether true or not.
124  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/16/15 Edition on: October 16, 2015, 03:27:54 PM
Metal Gear Online and Zombasite along with the usual Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm.

I've already paid for and preloaded as much as I can for Halo, CoD, Battlefront.  Gonna be a rough shooter season.  At least two of these have 4 player coop campaigns too.

Will be splitting my time between Elder Scrolls Online, Final Fantasy XIV, and the Star Wars Battlefront beta.

Put a little time in to SW:B the other day. Looks fantastic on the computer and plays great too. The beta has 1 solo/co-op mission where you fight waves of storm troopers. Then two multiplayer specific maps. One 6 on 6 map where you capture points on a volcanic rock type planet. The other one is the 32/32(?) Hoth map which I didn't try yet since I was sucking so much.

I'm both anticipating and regretting the game (I pre-purchased). I love the look of the game and can't wait to play all the maps. But regretting it since I know my FPS skills have waned to where I'm not that great anymore. Titanfall gave me some hope as I ended up getting pretty good at that but I know the Battlefield games are a different beast.


this doesn't really have much in common with Battlefield, especially in the skill set required.  Aiming does nothing to accuracy for example, neither does stance

Excited to be playing MGO today on XB1
129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/2/15 Edition on: October 04, 2015, 10:56:29 PM
haven't played much since beta, but I really enjoyed WoWp when I played.

131  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: September 19, 2015, 06:21:25 PM
those type of games are just meant to be played in short sessions if you don't want to pay.  doesn't sound pay to win, sounds pay to play to me. (is there even any pvp?  hard to be p2w without any vs at all)

I would like to request leaving spoilers out of a non-show specific thread.  I haven't even started a few of the shows that have been spoiled in this thread already frown

Played a bit of Walking War Robots, it's basically world of tanks with mechs on ipad.

Why do you ignore Soulchilde's posts? Not very nice.

that's where I found out about it, not sure what you are getting at.  Was just sharing mine
135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 16, 2015, 09:38:17 AM
Haven't played since first dlc, but this is interesting
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamer motivation survey on: September 14, 2015, 12:57:34 AM
I don't want a single player adventure with my Battlefront.  I'd be fine if they sold it as a separate game though.  (I still don't understand why they don't sell a COD campaign, COD multiplayer and COD zombies as separate games)
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 09/11 Patriotic Edition on: September 12, 2015, 11:06:26 AM
Diablo and CoD on xb1, hearthstone, heroes and mad max on pc
138  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Women in combat on: September 12, 2015, 01:13:26 AM
It's definitely a different time now.  I had a friend go through training a couple years ago and he was facebooking throughout.  ridiculous
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamer motivation survey on: September 12, 2015, 12:22:23 AM
That's what I do as well, but I prefer to do it alongside friends
140  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [ios] Star Wars: Uprising on: September 10, 2015, 04:27:18 PM
the story being canon is the most interesting thing about this so far
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamer motivation survey on: September 10, 2015, 09:38:24 AM
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.
142  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / [ios] Star Wars: Uprising on: September 10, 2015, 09:36:53 AM
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.
143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamer motivation survey on: September 10, 2015, 12:10:20 AM
Just like at Qt3, it amazes me how little all the people on these forums don't like the social aspect of games.
144  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Mad Max Returns in Fury Road on: September 07, 2015, 01:27:56 AM
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

146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: September 03, 2015, 01:01:51 PM
 It is star wars, i will play even if it stinks.  Shame is switching between the two likely to be hard

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)
150  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
151  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.
153  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.
154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 28, 2015, 07:04:25 PM
Slowly regaining some shooter skill.  I'm definitely past my prime but having a ton of fun with this.

First few clips, now back to streaming

Me doing shooty stuff

gotta get a dude to 70 on pc first for heroes unlock, then I'll likely be playing on console again
158  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 26, 2015, 08:35:07 AM
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.
