Quote from: EngineNo9 on February 09, 2015, 04:04:51 AM

I picked this up for some reason and got to play for several hours yesterday. 

I got to the point of the first forced night mission and after first running away from the virals I started creeping veeeery slowly to avoid all the others and try to get back to the tower.  After creeping slowly (and running one more time) for a long time, somehow a viral just spotted me out of nowhere as I was crouching behind a car.  Of course a whole bunch of them started chasing me and then I died.  And it spawned me back before I got the last package.  Fuck that. 

This game can go to hell if they really want to introduce players to their night mechanic with a forced night mission (after a terrible cutscene where my character does stupid things for clearly terrible people) that is going to take a long time and end in death and resets.  I'm fine with failing on my own terms, but being forced to fail and lose time is not my idea of fun.

my first night mission lasted about 30-45 seconds.  Just run like a little bitch to the tower doing your best to avoid any groups of bad guys and use your survivor sense to avoid the powerful ones completely.  Having troubles?  Do it coop.  Nothign forced you to fail

Disliking the DLC for Evolve seems really odd and most people who do probably don't even understand what it is exactly or how the game is designed. Evolve's DLC is the least intrusive DLC for a multiplayer I've seen with the exception of skins only DLC like in DOTA.  People are jumping on a bandwagon and it's embarrassing to me to see gamers overreact so much.  Reminds me of everyone freaking out about horse armor prices which was simply cosmetic and didn't matter one bit. Slow game news time so every website ran some sort of hype about DLC ruining everything.  I'm excited for the prospects of extra stuff for this game, especially since it won't split the playerbase in the slightest unlike Battlefield and Call of Duty which many of you play and have paid for DLC repeatedly.  Honestly, the stupid sheep are the people who jumped on the bandwagon of DLC hate based on this game without doing their own research.  There are plenty of games who abuse real money transactions and DLC, Evolve ain't one of them.

Having said that, I will be playing Evolve on XB1 tonight.

Microsoft didn't break it because they wanted people to upgrade, that's an odd conspirator type thought imo.  They dropped the family gold account package for a variety of reasons, but that wasn't one of them.

166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: February 01, 2015, 02:38:30 PM
Just started today.  I'm actually not really big into the crafting aspect of these games, so they all tend to be a bit of a tough sell for me.  I love the ideas though.  Survival part is fun to me.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: January 30, 2015, 01:03:15 AM
It only took 6 hours or so to level to 70 before and now with the Gem of Ease it is under 3 hours from lvl 1-70 on frsh character.  It's very much all about 70 and adventure mode/rifts/grifts
168  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Recommendations for PC Gameplay Recording Software on: January 27, 2015, 12:39:46 PM
I used to use fraps, but now use obs for both recording and streaming.  Nothing changed for me when ownership changed hands, also twitch settings should have nothing to do with obs ability to capture Game source either.  Likely some unrelated small system change somewhere else bj.

I tend to only play through games once. Can a few of you recommend the the class of character that you found to be the most entertaining, or have the best loot?

Honestly I would say that you probably shouldn't play through Diablo for the story and that it's certainly not a genre that is really designed for people that don't like replaying.  You can play through and have some fun, but your character isn't really fully fleshed out until many hours of repeated stuff which shines in adventure mode and loot grinding.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: January 24, 2015, 05:09:13 PM
it took me next to no time at all for my console character to be far more powerful than my pc character.  Such a huge gear quality difference for me personally.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: January 21, 2015, 10:12:19 PM
keep in mind they also changed it so that the mobs are always your level or so.
172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: January 19, 2015, 07:13:16 PM
more importantly is that you now should have the Boon of the Hoarder which will let you get more gold from here on out which is essential to gem upgrades and enchanting

I sent a ton of people legendaries but I have a feeling most of them don't play anymore
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Evolve (from Turtle Rock) on: January 16, 2015, 10:54:25 PM

had a blast in this set.  Poor guys
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: January 16, 2015, 09:02:04 PM
The Nemesis thing really adds a lot to the game.  It's so ominous hearing the horns going off.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Evolve (from Turtle Rock) on: January 16, 2015, 01:57:39 AM
Having a blast with the beta so far. close one

I'm sure FMS5 was a great game, but without access to an affordable wheel I played it all of 2 times I think.  Might pass on this one if they still have no decent wheel

I streamed this all day monday.  It's come a long way and is very fun.  Great mix of genres.  will likely stream some more soon
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dirty Bomb by Splash Damage now on Steam for beta on: January 07, 2015, 06:03:38 PM
Gonna be playing and streaming today. and  Feel free to join if you're in the beta or just come watch if you want to see how it is.  Hopefully I get some more players since servers are a bit sparse midday.
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [KS] Into the Stars "Oregon Trail meeds FTL in an open world" on: January 07, 2015, 01:32:00 AM
game looks good, bit put off by spelling errors in the trailer though.  You'd think they would proofread a tad more.
180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Smite on: January 06, 2015, 07:36:17 PM
If you were ever thinking of playing, now is the time since the 'all gods' pack is now $20 instead of $30.  It gets you every champ/god/hero that exists and will ever exists.  No grinding for new gods. 

My referral code:  (you get bonus xp/money if you play with the person who referred you, also I get a skin if I get 3 people to play to 15)
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: January 06, 2015, 05:16:25 PM
With Mumble it's quite simple to meet up.  Also you just have to follow each other around and make sure you jump into each other's framewakes to not end up in another instance.
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 30, 2014, 03:23:33 PM
Hop into mumble and join the chatter of space travel ninja
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 25, 2014, 08:34:52 PM
I'm using my mumble for this fwiw, anyone is welcome just pm for info.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 25, 2014, 06:50:23 PM
It will be intimidating to you if you aren't familiar with the genre, but it's not actually overly complex once you see past the layers.

Just get this, it's perfectly serviceable and is what I am using until I can swing a full setup.  $20 joystick

Just hop on mumble when some people are on and it'll be a breeze to figure it out.  There are also plenty of videos available in game as well as tutorials to learn the various aspects of the game.
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 25, 2014, 04:46:07 PM
Loving this, put a few hours in and streamed them.  Hoping they add things like job boards so I can hire myself out as an escort.  ninja

187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 5: Guardians on: December 20, 2014, 03:48:13 AM 

Early access beta clip of me trying not to suck.

I'm surprised I like it.  I'm not a big fan of Halo gameplay but something about this felt good.
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Smite on: December 19, 2014, 06:40:24 AM
it's not out on ios, thought that was all you played anymore  ninja
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Smite on: December 16, 2014, 11:27:18 PM
Getting back into this with some friends and we need teammates!  We use Mumble and will be playing at all hours of the day.  Lemme know.
190  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: December 16, 2014, 02:53:29 PM
oddly I've had no issues with last two launchers including today.  Odd since I had several issues when I first tried playing a few months back

no more unfair than circumventing time for money which you can already do by buying ships with cash.
193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: December 09, 2014, 09:01:59 PM
yep, they chose a really horrible way to progress with expansions imo frown
194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: December 09, 2014, 01:04:31 AM
opened my 3 free packs of the new cards, got 4 rares 2 of which were gold.  not too bad.  sadly the shop is closed though so no more cards today
195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: December 08, 2014, 06:16:52 PM
the game isn't terrible by any means, but it isn't what was sold to me based on marketing in the slightest.  All the last minute changes after they showed the game and talked about it rub me the wrong way.
196  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: December 08, 2014, 12:53:32 PM
I also bought the collector's edition and regret it.  Last year I bought the season pass for COD and BF4 and didn't utilize either.  This year it's Destiny and I'm enjoying COD much more and wish I had the pass for it.  frustrating.
197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Street Fighter V on: December 05, 2014, 02:14:44 PM
Killer Instinct is basically a F2P game and an XB1 exclusive.  Seems odd they would do this.  Bit bummed since I don't have a Ps4
198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: November 27, 2014, 12:08:49 AM
he never said you can only do it from afar though, you just took it that way and I didn't understand why you thought that's what he meant.

you asked how do I tell their level, he said to target them from afar.  He was suggesting you do that because if you waiit until you are right next to them you can't avoid the fight and that seemed to be why you were asking for their level.

I have never noticed it.  Wonder why it's from only from afar as well

um, it's not only from afar, he's telling you to do it from afar so you can find the level before you are fighting it.

I've had several crash to dashboard bugs.  Probably once or twice an hour.  Might just stick to mp for now since it's pretty frustrating being at the dashboard suddenly and hoping the autosave isn't too far back.
