Here's some gameplay footage of me fumbling about


I made lots of mistakes, but you can see how it plays overall.  I have shadows turned off, but otherwise am on pretty high settings.

Picked this up with the 50% off Steam Sale and was pleasantly surprised.  It's a Square Enix gmae that will eventually be F2P, but the packs are 50% off right now and give 100% cash value in currency plus other bonuses as well as access to closed beta.

It's a third person shooter with humans vs vampires set in the Legacy of Kain universe. Overall feel is very good so far, responsive and decent hit detection.  Playing the first vampire class gives a feel similar to playing as an alien in Aliens vs Predator imo.  They can climb up walls and pounce long distances.  Looks like they have avoided all P2W aspects completely thankfully.  Cash just buys things more quickly and skins, and you earn money at a fair rate anyway.  You also get some skins and items at various levelling milestones.  You can pay to unlock classes early, but you also get a class token every 5 levels so you get them eventually for free.

Overall I'm very glad I too the chance and can recommend to anyone that enjoys a faster paced shooter with a unique feel.  There is quite a bit of customization for each class with more on the way.

Just be careful, if you buy one pack or get a free beta invite, Steam gets confused on the packs and you can't upgrade later.  I made that mistake. frown  bought the cheap pack when it was 75% off then realized how good the game was and wanted the pack with more stuff and now it's sitting in my inventory with me unable to open it since it's flagged as the game and not DLC.  Thankfully I've been told Steam will fix this eventually, just waiting on my ticket. 

tldr:  game good, buy it, buy the $50 pack for $25 if you're interested, because you can't upgrade later through steam with discount.  (you can upgrade through them, but no discount)

any game with multiplayer, I'd much rather everyone be on equal footing with regard to graphical quality and performance.  Player without shadows for example, means you can't hide in them.  It's bullshit in competitive games.
88  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] Zombies, Monsters and Robots - ZMR on: June 19, 2014, 10:27:42 PM
F2P game with strong PvE components.  Not a big fan of the pvp, but the PvE has many different modes, from horde mode, to a terrorist hunt feel, to COD Zombies.
89  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA Sports UFC on: June 19, 2014, 07:51:47 PM
I also have takedowns maxed because my gameplan is to win on the ground

I'm currently on normal and middleweight.  next time through I'll bump up difficulty.  Plan on going through each weight class at least once

game definitely has some glaring flaws, but is a ton of fun.  Don't think I'd like to play against random people though, there are a few exploits I think playing with friends and gentleman's rules would fix.
91  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA Sports UFC on: June 19, 2014, 02:07:42 AM
This link should lead to my playlist.  Currently at 4 fights, I'll keep adding


Most of them are available in slightly higher quality on my twitch channel as well.

there doesn't appear to be any limits to stats on created fighters outside of career, so I expect all of our custom fighters to pretty much be identical except perks.  Kinda lame overall
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA Sports UFC on: June 19, 2014, 12:00:36 AM
It's interesting when you stream, it leaves out the voice and music tracks.  They must not have the licenses for the announcer and songs for that.

I think the view that the skeletons and fireballs are too much is a bit odd as well.  We had the mages, we had a long talk about how magic might come back with the dragons, the whole mage tower thingy with dany.  Anyone who didn't think this was high fantasy with magic and dragons was fooling themselves just because it wasn't shown all the time.  It was quite obvious from the first few episodes that it was moving to more and more of the supernatural and fantasy.

It just seems like such an odd disconnect that it took 4 seasons of fire breathing dragons, illusionists, shape changers, killer shadows, zombies, giant wolves, giants, people not dying from being cleaved in two,etc. The list is HUGE, and people who don't like fantasy probably should have stopped watching by the end of season 2 at the latest.

fun little card based game with some shooter aspects as well.  Just starting so not sure what it's limits are yet or how the market affects the game.

I have an invite code, if you try the game out, feel free to give us both a free card smile

invite code: SJFR7G8

edit: mandatory tutorial/introduction.  I hate that, why does Square always have these.  this would be why I never finished FF:Tactics. Seems to be a pretty fun game if you like the 'your card lineup vs theirs' type games.

nope, that's about right.  Looks like I last played it 2011 according to my save games. 

Now we just need to get 3 of us on at the same time to make some progress.  There are quite a few heroes and they can all be levelled up.

I hated terrorist hunt, it was a great concept, but the insta-pop behind you in a dead end you already cleared was bullshit.

Game looks like it has potential and R6 was where I met Kato so I'll have to kill him there again.

haven't seen last nights ep (is there even one?) but what was the point of Tyrions beetle story? Was the Mountain the simpleton?

I think it was partially a reflection on the idea that the world can be a pretty ugly place and sometimes there is no rational explanation for it.

Need at least a group of 3 since the matchmaking sucks with so few people playing.  You can also play if you ONLY have the last stand module which is $10.  Game is a blast.  3 player horde mode with levelling up rpg aspects.

Trying to get back in and just can't get a game.

it's already been worked out.  GRRM gave them a brief outline of what happens to who and how and they also have the authority to make up an ending.  It's entirely likely the show will finish before he does and the books will either be written to reflect the show's ending or be different altogether.  Already they are diverging enough that I will likely not finish the books.  Loved the first one, liked the second, then the books become a bit drawn out and tedious so I never even finished the fourth.

don't get me wrong, I agree that there are ways to find someone in your game before they start hacking, and I think it should be this way.  I'm just saying that the method of pausing every few minutes to check is obviously a bit of a cheaty way to do it.  (it would also make for a very irritating twitch stream to watch)

I prefer to just pay attention to my surrounding to see people moving oddly combined with not being able to activate missions and the like when they occur.  The pause method really seems to be against the spirit of the game imo.

Homefront multiplayer was one of the best multiplayer games I ever played... that didn't work at all.  The rare times I was able to stay in a lag free match it was quite amazing.

115  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: June 01, 2014, 05:33:53 PM
that's cheating, wish they would prevent those types of things from being a problem.  too late now though, like seeing through the shell game when you pause.

regarding the counter hack, you get a revenge hack option quite often after someone invades you.  You can also find a 'recently hacked' option on some people.

No. Tongue The above description alone says I should not read these books (I read half the first one and got bored and stopped).

I'm constantly amazed how different people can be.  I went into reading the first book expecting a stupid kid's story (I just grabbed the book off my nephew's shelf).  Instead it was a fairly mature and decently written story.

I'm afraid Lee and I share pretty much nothing in common other than being forumites here.

If you do the mobile invasion thing, please be a gentleman and don't leave as soon as the player starts winning the race. 

I have probably done a dozen of those races and only a couple of them had the mobile person actually stay through the whole race.  It seems once I reach about the halfway point and I'm ahead of the cops (and I'm assuming they are out of action points or something)...oops, disconnected.   icon_evil  finger

Though people will always be dicks about it, most of those people probably just got booted from uplay.  I've had it happen multiple times while on mobile.

Think I found an exploit in the invasion mission where you hack another persons phone. On one invasion I wasn't able to locate the guy at all. Turns out he was in a parked car which made me feel stupid for not checking. But then I was thinking I had checked around that area. So it got me thinking that maybe if you are in a car you are not detectable.

So I did two of those hacking invasions where I parked myself in a car near the target and hacked the player. In both cases the person never caught me. In one I was sure he was going to get me as I was lowering/raising a bridge and he walked past my car a few times. But they never did.

they can find you, they either have to get in, or leave the profiler on the car for longer than impatient people are willing to.

I'll admit that the graphics can be a put off and will keep many from playing, and I also probably never would have seen the game if I only went by screenshots.  My point was just that with a bunch of people saying how good the gameplay is, to STILL not play it because of graphics is a bit odd to me.
