I hope they make this cross-buy as well so I can go from Vita to PS4. 

Yep, that is my hope as well. The game does look quite fun!

If you haven't played Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag yet, I would consider the PS4 version to be the definitive experience.  The vanishingly small graphical downgrade from the PC version is offset by not needing to jump through any weird hoops to fix Ubisoft's V-Sync issues, and I thought it was the best AC game since Brotherhood.

And don't forget: if you have a Vita or PS3, there's a bunch of free games you can nab off PSN for those platforms too!

-Autistic Angel

Agreed. I played both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of ACIV and there is no question that the PS4 version is a superior experience. It was honestly shocking to me to see the difference in the two versions.

The gaming gods were kind today. Walked into Target and they had one PS4 in stock. Gave my wife the puppy dog eyes and she relented after I impressed on her the utter rarity of this event (not really because I've seen them all over the place around here, but she didn't know that).

The Target lady was all excited and there were employees gathered around like I had come in to purchase the Mona Lisa or something. The girl who sold it to me was obviously a gamer because she was geeking out hard. If my wife had not been there I'm pretty sure she would have proposed.

When I told her I didn't want a game she looked shell-shocked. Then I told her I was waiting on Infamous. Her whole face lit up and she gave me the "fellow gamer telepathic gaze of total understanding."

I have a date night tonight so probably won't get to hook it up, but I'm all set for next week!

Sign up for PS+ and start downloading some games in the meantime!

Seconded! PS+ is a must. It's value is incredible.

I really don't have any dog in any console war since I am sitting comfortably on the sidelines, but I think any comparison between XB1 and PS4 monthly sales is meaningless until the PS4 is as readily available as the XB1. I haven't seen a PS4 anywhere in weeks.

I don't think it's meaningless for the simple reason that the PS4 outsold the XB1 2:1 in January, yet one would presume it was just as scarce then (if not scarcer).

(Shrugs) I can't possibly comment on whether or not the ps4 was more or less supply constrained in the US in February vs January. What I do know is that the xbox one was not supply constrained in February and the ps4 was. I am not in any way implying that the xbox one is doing poorly, but comparing sales of it to the ps4 is silly when ps4s are hard to find and xbox ones are not.

Exactly, there are tons of Xbox Ones around. I see them whenever I am out. Heck, everytime I walk into Best Buy there are multiple signs that say they are available. As for the PS4, well good luck finding one. Your best bet seems to be on Amazon. I did see a PS4 yesterday at Wal-Mart, but that is only the second time I have seen one since launch.

Wow, I'm really...not good.  Played through the first three campaign missions and came in dead last in each one.  My matches typically ended up as a recurring cycle of:  spawn, run around for 30 seconds shooting grunts, hear 2-3 shots from a PC, dead (usually before I could even see what shot me), re-spawn.  frown  Going to keep playing and give it an honest try though...I really want to like it.  Unfortunately, after the third mission, I just kept getting a "Connection to server failed" error for about 10 minutes, so I think I'll go fire up Thief for a while instead.

How do I find GT'ers to play with?  Assuming you'd be willing to play with a n00b, that is.  I'm skinypupy on Origin...not sure if we have an Origin handle list around here or not.  Tried to import my friends list from XBL (no idea if it's cross-platform or not), and just kept getting server errors.

I hate the concept that every single player game needs to have multiplayer and that every multiplayer game needs to have single player. If I like flight sims, I don't complain that Thief doesn't have an airplane level. I just go buy a flight sim. Since when did every game have to please every player?

Exactly! This game doesn't need single player. It's about pwning noobs... in mechs.. or with a jetpack strapped to your back!  icon_biggrin

Speaking as a noob, this is the exact reason why I won't be buying this game.  The whole package looks pretty awesome, but going up against the COD bro-sect holds exactly zero appeal to me.

Did you try the beta?  The game does quite a lot of great things to make the game noob-friendly.  Of course, you have to raise above the ritt skill threshold for it to have an effect.  icon_wink

LOL yeah.  As I mentioned I couldn't even make it through the entire tutorial, and not for lack of trying.  I just don't do well with jumping puzzles in any game.  When you add the FPS perspective it just makes it worse for me.  Then you factor in the pace of MP and everyone else being way ahead of you in all facets of the game, and I guarantee it is NOT noob-friendly. 

So to answer the later comment below, it's not that I demand SP content to get my money's worth or whatever, but in a game like this, it would be the only way I might be able to practice/learn enough to be viable in multiplayer. 

I'm in the same boat as rittchard.  I kinda suck at FPS anyways, so playing an MP game and getting my ass absolutely handed to me every single time I boot it up isn't particularly fun.  I have very little gaming time, so practicing to get significantly better isn't much of an option either.

Everything about Titanfall looks really damn cool though (i.e. the world, the setting, the combat, etc.), which is why it's disappointing that there isn't any form of single player for those of us who don't enjoy being perpetual noobs.

Yeah, I really do wish there was some sort of offline mode. That is a major omission. Hopefully for Titanfall 2! smile

I must be a nerd, I collect them and try to get badges. Don't spend money on them, other than the money I make by selling duplicates.

I was getting booster packs almost weekly for awhile, but it' been months since I last got one.

I'm level 18 and had not received a booster pack in months, until two days ago when I got one. I would really love to know what the base drop rate is on them. I know that they are randomly given out whenever someone crafts a badge, or so their FAQ says. It also says that for every ten levels you get a 20% bump in your chance for getting one.

Ugh. I'm pretty sure my f*&king console is defective. Half the time I don't get any sound after I boot up and it requires a reboot, and there have been multiple instances of the thing not connecting to the network. I also get these weird sound/video glitches during games. Anyone experience any of this?

One time I got no sound but a simple switch to tv and back to hdmi 2 fixed it. Just a receiver handshake quirk. No graphics or audio issues here like that. When did you get it?


It's a launch console. I've been hoping that the issues would be resolved in a firmware update but it hasn't happened yet and it's starting to become a major annoyance. I guess I'll contact Amazon first and then Sony, I hope I don't have to go weeks/months without it while they attempt to fix it.

I've had an audio issue as well (no sound at some random point during a game) and it can be annoying. Luckily, it doesn't happen often at all (mostly during NBA 2k14) and it can be fixed by going out to the system menu and just switching the audio to HDMI, then switching back to the digital out. The sound comes right back. Seems like a firmware issue.

I'm enjoying it. It's more of the same, but that is fine with me. I don't feel that it is light on content at all. Yes, there are fewer masters...but there are more levels than the first. Seems like a pretty good deal for $12, IMO.

As for the problems with it, well the graphics are not mind blowing and it could have been just as easily been on the 360...though there a couple nice effects, like the snow guys power. Also, this game really abuses the Game clip recording and posting on the Activity Feed. It seems like every other minute it is recording a clip and posting it. Come on, EA.

Jeebus Microsoft lose that sharpening filter!

also, WiiU version inferior to PS360, that's kind of sad.

Yeah, I was honestly horrified when I booted up Assassins Creed on the XB1. I wanted to see how it looked on there compared to the PS4. It was like night and day with the PS4 version. The shimmering was god awful. How can a console that produced Ryse, puke out that? If they are going to be upscaling games on the XB1, then they need to lose that Sharpening Filter. It is garbage.

I have high hopes for the XB1, there are some awesome games on it and some great ideas for the whole gaming experience....but whoever thought that it would be a good idea to over sharpen all the games that use the upscaler on the system, should be fired.

This article pretty much sums up my problems with the UI of the XB1.

Quote
This shambling, zomboid clunkiness permeates the entire interface. You have to go into the Games & Apps list to view downloads. Missed game invitations arenít stored, but lost forever. You canít view or manage storage, a spectacularly poor decision given that the 500GB hard drive will be approaching capacity by March. The overall sense is of a design handed over to the team behind the similarly unloved Windows 8 interface, rather than anybody who has used an Xbox 360 regularly or had any familiarity with its strengths.

All in all very happy with the Xbone's overall feature set, capabilities and potential, though slightly disappointed at the kind of "beta" state of things.

That's the exact thought i was getting with a lot of people's impressions

Yeah, I honestly think they were rushed to market to compete with the PS4 launch. I believe that they were originally targeting a Spring 2014 launch, but had to move that up....hence the sort of beta state of the OS. It will get better (it has too) and the games themselves are very good. Ryse looks better than anything on either console. I mean, it's incredible and the only game on either system to make me say "this is true next gen". I don't know how they did it, but MS needs to let all the 3rd parties know what that team did to make it look so good on the XB1.

Congrats. smile

Dead Rising 3 and Ryse are both great. Ryse takes some getting used to, but I am loving it now. It took me awhile to stop playing it like God of War and more strategically. Having that mindset really helped out with my enjoyment of the combat system.

The interface is a bit bewildering, but there feels like there's more next gen stuff on this box.  The voice commands have worked extremely well for us.   My wife is in love with this feature because she can just say Xbox On and the whole damned system comes up without her having to wrestle with turning them on.  At night she's laying in bed tired and just says Xbox turn off, and boom...everything including the TV and Cable box turns off.    

Agreed. I feel the XB1 UI has a huge upside to it. It just kind of feels half-baked to me right now. It has the potential to be incredible and does feel much more "next gen" than the PS4 interface. I do love the voice commands as well, when they work....which is about 80-90% of the time. Of course, YMMV on that...

I am sure MS will refine the interface over the course of the next few years. I mean the 360 interface changed pretty drastically (not all for the better, but that's a different story...) from the original shipping interface, so there is room for quite a bit of optimism on that front.

73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 27, 2013, 06:59:40 PM
Well, here are some more impressions of the system after a lot more time with it and the games.

It's a very good, but not great system. As before, my main complaint is the UI. It's needlessly complicated and complex. It really shouldn't be this hard to get around on the system. Also, why is EVERYTHING an app?? I mean come on, settings are an APP? Ugh. I do like the Activity Feed though. It's much better than the "What's New" menu on the PS4.

The exclusive games though, are very good. Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Ryse are awesome. I really love Dead Rising 3. It's pretty much worth owning the system for, IMO. The sheer number of Zombies on screen is incredible. I don't like the microtransaction system in Ryse though, or the one that I have heard about in Forza. Come on, I just spend $60 bucks for the game, don't nickel and dime me MS!!!

As for the multiplats, I'm sticking with the PS4 for those. They look better on there and most of my friends are now on the PS4. Still, the XB1 has nothing to be ashamed about on that front. All the games look good, just not quite as good as the PS4 versions look.

Luckily, both my PS4 and XB1 have not had any hardware problems. Thank goodness.

Anyway, I'm happy I got a XB1. Dead Rising 3 makes it all worth it. smile

Maybe I'm cynical, but I don't read anything into both consoles' massive start other than both MS and Sony manufactured more than they ever had previously for their respective launches.

 The true health of console gaming in this new generation will be determined by looking at game and console sales over the entire life of the consoles.

On another note, I'll bet Nintendo didn't send out any laudatory messages to either Sony or Microsoft. How many Wii U's have sold after a year? 4 million? Sony and MS got 25% there in 24 hours.

Yep, thing that is kind of lost in all this MS vs Sony fighting, is just how bad Nintendo's future looks. The Wii U continues to have virtually no 3rd party support and is going to look worse and worse visually compared to both the Xb1 and PS4. Add to that the absolutely laughable online and account situation (you sell your system and you lose all your digital games, since they are DRM'd directly to the hardware, not the account)....you see a very bleak and sad future shaping up for Nintendo....but they brought this on themselves by refusing to change with the times and adopt a modern online gaming network and account system.

Just brought Killer Instinct and Xbox Fitness since they are free.  Should be ready to download to my XB1 tomorrow

 thumbsup

I supposedly am getting Killer Instinct with all the characters unlocked for free from MS.

I just got my code from MS through email,thankfully because i don't have a XB1 yet,the expiry date for the code is next June(30/06/14)

Yeah, I ended up getting my code about 5PM yesterday.

Killer instinct is awesome. I wasn't even planning on getting it as I remember playing it in the arcade, but I wasn't that huge a fan at the time (though I did love the announcer on it, ULLLLTRAAAA COMBO!!!!!!). Glad I got it free from MS, cause it's great fun! I ended up playing it most of the night.

Sony might run some games at 100p more or whatever, but as a gadget freak I'm loving the way they're trying to do something new with the Xbone. Once the kinks are ironed out, this thing is going to be really, really slick.

Agreed. That is the kicker though....once the kinks are ironed out....and right now there are a fair number of kinks, unfortunately. I really see the potential here though and I do admire them for trying to do something new. One day, this system is going to be incredible. I just don't know if that day is going to be a couple months from now....or a couple years.

Still, it is a fun system with loads of potential and the only place I can play Dead Rising 3 and Ryse....so they got me!

If there is....I haven't found it yet....   icon_confused

Internet is back to 500 kb/s.    Ugh I hate the internet out here in the boonies.

Anyway, everything works and so far works well.   I was able to issue voice commands without any problems.   I couldn't find 'Settings' by using the controller, so I finally gave up and said 'Xbox, Go to settings' and boom.... instantly to settings.   

Hetz... have you figure out how to turn the TV back off after starting it?    I went home but the TV was still playing in the little window (with the TV sound coming through).



Took me awhile to figure out. You highlight the window, then push the button that used to be the start button.....one of the options that comes up is Quit Application. Push that and it will stop.
