fwiw, Firefall has been scratching my Destiny itch.  Gameplay is similar enough to keep me happy while I wait.

seems almost crazy they would do it with real cars

Evolve, and Firefall

I agree with you for the most part, but where I think I feel it's different is I don't think it's a bad thing to force gamers who want something to work for it.  Make some real friends if you want the content, don't hide behind the social crutch of match making.  (and I'm super socially repressed/loner, but it will force me to be more outgoing so I think it's a positive thing)
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: July 31, 2014, 09:48:50 PM
I've worn a demo unit, between the inability to quickly and easily check a second monitor and the lowered resolution it would force my streaming, I'm not too interested in it overall.

Also I already sit entirely too close to my screen slywink  I'm less than 3 feet from it.

Basically the fact that I stream definitely affects my opinion, but even without I think I don't really WANT that much immersion since I want to stay aware of what's around me in real life.  I do however want the freedom of head tracking which is why I want a TrackIR.  Checking twitch chat to interact with viewers is an important part of being a 'good' streamer.
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: July 31, 2014, 08:21:47 PM
I still think I would prefer to play on my 46" tv and stream with a TrackIR, than play on a Rift

How so?  It didn't seem that there was branches to the powers. You got what you got when you got it. Did I miss this customization capability?

yes, you completely missed this important aspect of the game

while you're spending $75 for a beta, throw a TrackIR at me and I'll join ya  ninja

I don't find it silly at all and I hope they don't change it.

It's not that hard to make friends and invite people, and they are talking a level of teamwork and trust that would just be too frustrating with randoms.  Play with randoms in the rest of the game, make your friends, then use them to do this.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]Pinball FX2 on: July 31, 2014, 04:56:49 PM
I'm pretty excited because this takes it from me not being able to play any more pinball, to me getting to continue to expand my collection

the comment that 'most action movies don't have things that don't make sense' confuses me.  Action movies are the genre that tends to have the most things that make no sense to me.  It's the type of movie I feel can get away with absurd stuff.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Evolve (from Turtle Rock) on: July 30, 2014, 10:20:08 PM
I'm very excited about this game.   ninja
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] EA Access on: July 29, 2014, 05:42:51 PM
I know a lot of people will shit on this idea, but I think it's a great thing.  There are plenty of titles (and a lot of them happen to be EA titles) that I only want to play for a short while.

the real kicker will be how limiting are they.  If they only offer gimped versions of new games and older games, it will be a fail for me.  Only way I'd get value from this is if I could play new games or fairly new games on it.

The wording of the release though seems to imply that many games will be a crippled trial to get you to buy the game, in which case this is really just them gating demos behind a paywall.  
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: July 29, 2014, 05:39:54 PM
I REALLY wish I had a TrackIR for this game (and wish I had this game slywink )
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 26, 2014, 10:58:26 PM
haven't seen the ps4 version but it looks good on the xb1.  Had a couple people on my stream say they thought it looked better than the ps4, but that might just be because I stream at high quality and maybe the ps4 doesn't.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 7/25/14 on: July 25, 2014, 10:34:16 PM
Gonna be playing and streaming mostly Destiny, but probably a bit of Hex Sat due to free tourney.  Sun I will be at the Brickyard 400 most of the day, so no gaming frown
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 25, 2014, 08:55:10 PM
Another one, starting to get the hang of things a bit better I think

Twitch highlight

Youtube link, same match

realized while editing this one that my logo and webcam are covering up important bits.  Any ideas on better placement?
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Gear Up on: July 25, 2014, 08:26:23 PM
looks similar to Robocraft
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 25, 2014, 03:33:57 PM
yep, can get quite hairy.

Here's more pimping of myself, put the whole thing here.  There are a few good moments in there definitely.  Will be editing some of my matches tonight I think.

Twitch match

Youtube link for same match, might still be encoding
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 25, 2014, 01:47:28 PM
some people inside might pop old school style, but a lot of times the ships will drop them off on the other side and they run in the back.  It's quite nice from a realism standpoint.  Had some fun moments where people were clearing the zone almost too quickly and the result was tons of dropships bombarding as they dropped of reinforcements.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 25, 2014, 12:12:47 PM
Set up your party chat before launching the game.  Make sure you actually quit Destiny, not just minimize.  Then it works fine.  It's a known issue that they are working to fix for launch.  Something about thier proprietary voice chat system is conflicting at the moment.  Their system is pretty cool with positional and distance related chat effects, but we're quite spoiled wtih party chat slywink

The network issues are likely because they just opened the beta to everyone to intentionally flood their system and see what it can take.

You can watch the respawns, giant transports warp in and the troops drop out, it's quite frequently.

I think the rights cover all use of the characters.  I don't believe it stipulates only film appearances.  Here's a handy chart of all the characters and their rights by studio. I honestly thought Sony owned more than two characters.  It also is interesting that the rights to Man-Thing were sold to Lionsgate.  I would love to see a film adaptation of that character...and yes, I'm discounting the SyFy feature from a few years ago.

man-thing was mentioned on SHIELD by name.  BTW, I'm about 99% certain of the character rights being movie specific and not just media.  This is also how they keep all the characters on the cartoons (and likely why the rights were worded the way they were). 

On that chart at the bottom, should Iron Man and Avengers just be together (and thus in first place) since it's all part of the same series?

When I moved from Boston to Albuquerque, I had an initial culture shock adjustment period to the different level of public friendliness between strangers.  The level of inquisitiveness and smalltalk you get from, say, a grocery bagger in ABQ, is just alien weirdo bizarre in Boston culture.  What does this person want?!  Why are they so curious how I'm going to cook these steaks?  Should I hand over my wallet?!

I'm always wary of this when I travel outside of New England, or even just to western Mass. Friendly strangers creep me out. Takes a few days to realize they aren't after your money or your soul.

ah, but they are..., they are

I hated Chic Fil-A forever since I love their food and they aren't open Sundays which was the day I was most likely to be near the only location we had at the time.  I'd finish playing games at the arcade, run across the hall of the mall and FUCKING SHIT IT'S CLOSED TODAY, STUPID RELIGION!

First world problems at the arcade

68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 24, 2014, 03:11:00 PM
is the stun just a factor of some damage cutoff per enemy?
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 24, 2014, 02:32:19 PM
Also this game isn't an mmo, it has some mmo'ish features sure, but I wouldn't say that having played an mmo or not played one should affect your grasp of it at all.  It's just a shooter with a social hub and the occasional other player in the open world areas.

I found most of the game pretty intuitive so far.

7. At one point I entered a room on the first mission and there was a gaggle of '??' level monsters and they ripped me apart in about 2 seconds.  How did that happen? Did I do something wrong?


The ?? means they are way higher level than you.  Your ability to do damage is based on your level discrepancy as well as your weapon's Attack value.  I think they sort of botch the weapon stats page as from what I can tell by hovering over stuff, Impact is the damage per shot, but generally people instinctively are looking at that giant number which is the weapons ability to damage higher level enemies.  It's weird, and I don't understand all the interplay there yet.

I don't get the feeling that's what impact is at all, seems to me the number IS attack damage and impact is hit stun.  With a high impact weapon you can stun lock an enemy.  There is also an upgrade on some weapons that says 'increase attack damage' and it only affects the number rating, not the bars
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 24, 2014, 12:16:23 PM
yes, for beta.  Do up to there, then you have Devil's Nest or whatever for coop, the open free roam area and pvp
72  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Would you ever??? on: July 23, 2014, 10:14:55 PM

73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 23, 2014, 09:51:13 PM
the areas between missions are 'open world' and can have multiple people not in groups together.  There can also be events occurring in these areas.  In mission areas it is only your fireteam.  Unless it's during an event or in a mission, reviving isn't that big of a deal.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: July 23, 2014, 03:23:15 PM
I enjoyed the raids for the WoW:TCG, but they didn't work like this.  (they were also balanced by being a coop affair)
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 23, 2014, 03:20:54 PM
Game feels awesome so far.  Wasn't thrilled with pvp just because it seemed like you either were on a vehicle/bike or instant paste.

streaming most/all of today on www.harkonis.com  Come see what one viewer referred to as Petyr Baelish with a mohawk...
76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 22, 2014, 11:13:11 PM
installing on XB1 now, gonna stream and play hunter when it's done.  www.harkonis.com
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: July 22, 2014, 08:32:25 PM
Only played the first boss so far and it was an easy win with my usual deck.  My deck is a rogue deck with some spell damage + and backstab/evis
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: July 22, 2014, 06:34:50 PM
PvE decks can be very different from PvP decks and be successful.
79  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Comcast on: July 22, 2014, 02:44:20 PM
considering that my cable connection went down at the same time they installed it AND has been down ever since I'm not sure I'm willing to wait Tongue

If it's for Netflix, they can probably use mutants.  I'm pretty sure the deal was only for film.  Also they could technically use them for the SHIELD show, but I think it would blow continuity for the movie tie ins so they avoid it.
