1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomorrow is July 1, will we have ATB's GOTY? on: July 16, 2014, 07:18:15 PM
Remember, ATB doesn't actually have to play a game to declare it his GOTY.

Mine is Dark Souls II.

This was the game of the generation in my opinion. I don't ever remember a game that produced as strong an emotional response. I'm probably not getting a PS4 until Bloodborne, but when I do, I will replay The Last of Us.

Does anyone know if there's a way to calibrate the controller? One of mine is pulling to the left a little.

Are we XBL friends?  What's your gamertag?

Is anyone still playing this?  I just got home from business related travel and I've got a few days off with the wife out of the house.  Every time I log on, I don't see anyone playing this.  Don't tell me I've missed out on the entire Titanfall window!
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 27, 2014, 09:44:54 PM
Sadly, I've been traveling pretty much since this came out.  I was home last weekend and got a chance to play up to around level 25, but didn't really see anyone from my friends list on.  I thought it was just about the most balls-out fun I've had in a long while.  I have some concerns about what kind of legs it will have, but I'm still pretty enthralled with it.  I hope you guys are still playing when I get home next week or so.

I keep starting over because I can't settle on a starting class.  The game is very compelling.

I'm looking forward to it. Unfortunately I'm travelling for business and might not get a chance to try it until the following weekend.  Loved the demo though.

I had the patch early access last week, and the surround sound appeared to work through the SPDIF through by TB X42s.  Couldn't use the mic though.

Don't forget the official headset mic adapter comes out on Titanfall Day. Not sure if that's what your headset needs, but it's what I've been waiting for for my Astro A40.

I believe that the headset adapter doesn't do surround sound, only stereo.

Hmm, Astro took down their setup walkthrough I linked a few pages back in the thread, so now I'm all kinds of confused.  With the 360, I used optical out to go to my Mixamp for Dolby surround game audio, and I'd run a separate cord from the 360 controller to the headset so it could record my voice.  I assumed I'd be able to do the same arrangement with this new adapter, but I'm admittedly unsure now.  The only Astro official word I can find on their forums seems to support what I'm saying, but it's so sparse on details it's hard to be sure.

My impression was that I would still be getting game audio via optical out, same as I do now, and that I'd voice audio would go

It looks like the standard 25mm cord for Xbox 360 headset microphones will plug into the adapter, so if you're using SPDIF out for surround sound through your headset, I'm not sure why it wouldn't work.  Yet, the MS support page only talks about stereo.  I'm willing to pick up an adapter and see what happens.  I'll let you guys know.

Don't know if anyone is interested but me, but it appears that my biggest complaint has been partially solved. Beta update allows Dolby surround sound through the optical out so older surround headphones work properly now. Unfortunately, the new batch connect to the controller, which will be stereo for the foreseeable future. As the mic doesn't work for the old headsets, there is still no complete surround sound headset with microphone solution for the Xbox one.

So ever since the update whenever I start up the game, it automatically starts the sp campaign. Which is annoying because it has to load a long cutscene. Is this happening to any one else?
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: December 23, 2013, 12:41:47 AM
How do I check my in game stats?  Number of kills with a particular weapon for example.

I'm slowly organizing something between this and a couple other forums.  Let me know what nights/times are good.  Trying to maximize exposure.

My goal this week is to at least get a one clean lap on every track in C Class.
Are you still planning this Hark?  If so, I'm in. I'm free any night except Thursday. Pm me or send me a Xbox message.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Dead Rising 3 on: December 02, 2013, 03:19:07 PM
I don't know about the other modes, but that was kind of the whole point of the save system in the older games. You had to level up your character a bit before attempting a run on the full game (which you would then repeat to see all the content). I'm aware the system wasn't popular, but I liked it.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Dead Rising 3 on: December 02, 2013, 10:27:03 AM
The bummer though is that you can't just start the game over, keeping your character progress, like you could in the old ones.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Dead Rising 3 on: December 01, 2013, 10:56:42 AM
Thanks purge. I will go to the toilet next time I play.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Dead Rising 3ve on: November 30, 2013, 08:50:30 PM
So, in the first two (or at least the first one) if you got killed, you had the option of starting over without losing your kill count or PPs. Is that no longer the case?  I started in nightmare mode because I loved the first two but it is significantly harder. Its also hard for me to play when my wife is around so I've probably played the first 15 minutes a half dozen times. Which wouldn't be so bad if I could keep my character progress. Where is the first real save point?  I need to know how long I need to set aside to play this game.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: November 24, 2013, 07:01:57 PM
Soooo... I'm not sure I'm loving it. I don't get the campaign progression. I've only played for a few hours and I'm in my second series. It doesn't seem like there's much of a progression. I always liked how you started up with the weaker cars and gradually moved up to the faster ones. It now seems like it's only gated by what you can afford. There also isn't any indication what the limitations are for each series other than that you can use one of your garage cars. But I like to sort of race the lower class cars before the better ones.

I'm also finding it really hard. Even at the default difficulty - with the default AI (err, I mean drivatars) and the default assists - I'm having a hard time even getting silver. I prefer to drive with a lot of the assist off so they don't become a crutch and that hasn't been so bad, but if I bump the AI up even a little, I have a hard time not being at the back of the pack.

Also, the Kinect head turning sucks. I had to turn it off because I was constantly looking out the left window.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: November 05, 2013, 10:23:19 AM
This is coming out today right?  I'm debating whether to pick it up or just wait for the xbone version. I was really hoping to finish gtav first. I've been working a brutal schedule but hopefully that will end this week.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How are you feeling about your pre-orders now? on: September 01, 2013, 02:28:47 PM
I have both preordered but I'm still not sure what I"m going to do.

I'm leaning towards keeping the XBone. Primarily because of Forza, and because Hark et al will be going XBone, and I like to play MP with them.  I am also looking forward to DR3.  The $100 price difference doesn't factor.  $100 amortized over the life of the console is negligible.

I'm less sure what to do about the PS4.  Strictly speaking, I don't need it.  I only bought a PS3 a couple of months ago, specifically to play The Last of Us.  But I find that I'm enjoying it.  There are several good exclusives, but the thing I like the best is how it works well with the Vita.  There are games I can play on both my PS3 and Vita, with save games transferring between the two easily.  With more common remote-play on the PS4, that's a pretty strong selling point.  Much more so than the Kinect 2, which I think will be not much more than a gimmick.

Should be unemployed by Thursday.  Looking forward to jumping back into this.

Was Fable 3 any good?  I downloaded it because it's free, but is it worth my time to play?
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next gen purchase poll on: June 25, 2013, 03:40:59 PM
Although I don't post here very much any more, a lot of the people on my XBox friends list are from this forum.  The most important factor on which new console to get is what most of the people I play with are getting. 

I have preordered both consoles just because why not.  I can always cancel, or put an extra console on eBay.  I am leaning towards keeping the XBone however.  As I mentioned, most of my friends are currently on XBox.  I like XBox Live and don't mind paying for it.  Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 are also two exclusives that mean a lot to me.  I like the XBox controller better, and even if the next dual shock is a better controller, I don't like that the buttons are marked with shapes that don't come on a standard keyboard.

I don't much care for Microsoft.  I think their customer services is beyond awful.  I don't much care for Kinect.  I don't need it and I think that it will force developers to use it, even when it doesn't make gameplay sense.  The price difference isn't a factor.  $100 amortized over the life of the console is negligible.

What's the consensus on platform for this one?  I will probably get it on 360. Is everyone pretty much playin on PC?
I went PC due to the better graphics and mods.  plus, I got it with a video card I was buying. 

make sure to pick it up today if you can jump on it though.  Amazon has a sale on all 3 versions.

D'oh! Missed it!  How much was it?

Hark, when will you be posting your guide and recommendations?  I'm afraid to spend any unlock tokens.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/Ps3] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on: November 14, 2012, 12:41:52 PM
Oh.  Maybe.  I didn't even look at the inserts in the box.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/Ps3] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on: November 14, 2012, 10:55:50 AM
Got my Amazon preorder yesterday and played for about an hour.  I got an invite to play with some GT guys (Thanks, Hark!) but I decided to get my feet wet in Boot Camp first.  So far, I like it!  I'm still terrible, but was showing some signs of improvement by the 4th or 5th round and even was able to call in a killstreak and finish a round >1.0.  Sadly, I'm looking at my schedule and don't see when I'll have a chance to play again before Saturday, assuming I don't have to work this weekend. 

For anyone else who preordered through Amazon, did you get your Nuketown 2025 code yet?  I still don't have mine.
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/Ps3] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on: November 10, 2012, 11:39:47 AM
I saw a bunch of people on my friends list playing this yesterday. I've got to work all weekend so I couldn't play if I had it (well maybe I could a little) but still, upsetting!
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Xbox 360 MP] Halo 4 or Black Ops II? on: November 05, 2012, 10:19:08 AM
Same boat. I cancelled my halo preorder because I simply don't have the time for both. Blops2 for me. I will eventually get halo at least to play the sp, but I still haven't played Reach yet, and I preordered that one.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/Ps3] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on: November 03, 2012, 09:46:59 AM

37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/Wii U/Ps3] Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on: November 02, 2012, 09:36:39 AM
I am in.

Is there a season pass I should be considering?  Should I get one of the special editions?

I have done no research on this game whatsoever. What do I need to know in the next 2 weeks?

38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] XCOM: Enemy Unknown on: October 09, 2012, 09:43:07 PM

Is anyone getting this on 360?  I tried the PC demo and HATED the camera control and interface.  I also like the idea of playing on my couch and 63" TV.

PLEASE ADVISE.
