Biggest surprise for me was...fallout 4 as of yesterday. I haven't had this much fun in years. Played for 7 hrs tonight. That never happens with me anymore. Played ES but not FO before. Loving it needless to say. Other than that, rocket league was a awesome surprise. Disappointed in battlefront after all. Freaking awesome. For a short while then it bored me:(.

[PS4]
Last night I realized that time slows down if you hold the attack button during a mounted attack.  Let's just say that heads are rolling now.
I also learned from a loading tip that you can switch signs with the Dpad while holding a parry (L2) which is also helpful.
Having a lot of fun with this.  If you see Harpua and me in a party, join for some Witcher shenanigans and tales (I often name the party Witching' Camaro or Every Witch Way But Loose or something equally terrible).

Miss ya Rupert! I promise I'll be back on soon enough! Been super busy recently.

Here was my first experience with Bloodborne (keep in mind that for all intents and purposes I have never played a Souls game). This will just be spoilers for the very beginning of the game:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I moved forward to the first monster and was quickly killed. Not really knowing what was going on I talked to a vendor and couldn't afford anything. I clicked on a shrine and chose to back to the sickroom. I then proceeded to make it to the first lantern using only my fists. It seemed really freaking hard, but I figured, "I guess this just what these games are like." After dying many times to the first monster but doing better with the lesser mobs, I was transported back to the place I was when I first died. Finally taking a look around, I realized my mistake  icon_lol
Holy shit. 3 hours later. Not much actual progress. Having a blast though!

Not usually.  Condensation from the air causes the melted surface to refreeze as ice crystals, giving it a watered down and often "freezer-burned" taste.

You'll get the best results if you eat the entire container of ice cream as soon as quickly as possible as soon as you open the container.  And I'll get the best results if you film it and upload the footage to YouTube.

I'm going to say something that might sound hyperbolic or like I'm getting ahead of myself, but I think Helldivers is not only going to be my GOTY, but also the best game I've played in at least 5 years (possibly since World of Warcraft).

I've been playing consistently since before it came out (I reviewed it for GT) and it's been a blast, but last night the experience was on another level. I played from about 10PM to 4AM last night with two of my friends - I never play games that long or late anymore - and it was ridiculously fun. I mean, forget the satisfaction you get from the combat, completing missions and leveling up. I was laughing so much I was in tears. The way Helldivers handles friendly fire and suicide leads to SO many hysterical deaths. The best moment, and I just mentioned it above, was after we unlocked the APC . When that thing drops it takes up the space that 3-4 normal pods would, and the very first time it dropped it killed all of us at once.

It's such a great multiplayer coop game, Arrowhead is my new favorite game dev.

I really could not get into part 1. To me it just seemed like a 16-bit violence simulator. Did I miss something with that assessment?

That's the one! Well. Kinda. It's really like a puzzle game. Sorta.🙈

Yes, you get all 3 versions digitally when you buy it, and they intended cross play in multi IIRC.  Simultaneously, even.


Have you had better luck since the other night?
That's the only trouble I've had joining a particular person (sometimes have trouble joining randoms, I think the browser shows ghost matches sometimes)..  There was a patch that night, maybe some lingering wierdness.
We need a few more troopers.  I can only kill forge in so many different ways; a full squad would really give me a lot more flexibility.
cool. I'll try and get on tomorrow night.

I take it one should not purchase this if they want to play single player only?  Iím intrigued but have no time for multiplayer nor do I have PS+ or enough online friends for that matter.  icon_cry

It's way better with friends or surprisingly randoms so far. Don't know how to call that. That being said, this game with others is insanely fun.

Do they still do that thing where they take new games out of the container and put them in a bag behind the counter? I stopped shopping there over a decade ago because of that.

I believe so. They have sold me something used as new before. They, around here at least, have seemed to behave a bit better as of recently.

Quote from: Caine on February 14, 2015, 05:54:56 PM

I played a good chunk yesterday and opened up the second area, which is a lot more vertical.  It reminded me of AC Unity in that buildings are close, tall and there are pathways across roads without having to go down to street level.  There are also a lot of open rooms which you can go into and search or use to hide at night.  It does seem smaller than the slums area, and doesn't appear to have any sewer systems that you can enter.  Also, there are fewer safe houses (so far) which means you really need to plan out your route once dusk falls.  I recommend you waiting on running the mission to the new area until you are at least 15 or so in survivor skill as there are no random airdrops.  There is a handful of drops in the world which are protected by thugs or swarming with specials, but going too soon could make survivor a pretty bad skill to grind later. 

I managed to play a bit of co-op, but sadly the experience isn't quite as fun as I'd hoped, at least with a PUG.  No communication over mic, players that seem to intentionally stay back from mission objectives instead of warping to the rest of the group, and a general lack of co-op tactics, which were a big part of the fun in Dead Island.  Everybody is basically playing it single player.  Also, in the few times I tried to set up the little mp challenges, noone wanted any part of it, even though it gives you xp for completing them.  The last player who was in my game basically quit after I tried to set one up. 

One thing related to the story that I wish they had improved.  At one point in the game, a somewhat major character dies and your character is pretty upset about it.  "he was my best friend" you say.  well, it doesn't feel like it when the game only has you running and not showing any kind of down time or any kind of shared experience outside of the early introduction.  I think they could have improved by having some of these characters accompany you on missions.  I'm not asking or wanting anything like GTA IV with it's forced and npc's constant need to hang out, but calling someone your best friend should mean more than few handful of scripted scenes. 



The "problem" isn't with coop, it's bc a lot of people suck..

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.


I would honestly say try again. This game is pretty damn good. I shared zero early impressions w you.
