I'm all over FIFA 15. The demo was incredible. Plus everyone in my office gets this game so it gets very competitive, especially when we do a FIFA tourney over lunch. I need to practice to improve on my 3rd place finish in the spring.

Nothing until FIFA 15 next week and then I think that wraps up the year for me.
3  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: September 13, 2014, 12:35:35 PM
NHL 15, FIFA 15 Demo, and Diablo 3.

Ignoring Destiny (my shootyface days may be over as I no longer have any interest in playing these games), and getting NHL 15.

I'm in Act V now and it's all new to me since I didn't get the expansion on PC. Nice change of pace since I have played all the other acts dozens of times each.

Waiting for next gen NHL next week.

One does not simply finish up Diablo 3. It's a game that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.

It's all I'll be playing this weekend. And next weekend. And the weekend after that.

Is there an option on the console where you can assign skills to any slot and each slot isn't locked to just a certain group? I think on the PC it was called "elective mode" or something, I can't remember. If so, does anyone use it?
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 28, 2014, 07:09:10 PM
Playing this thing basically solo and I'm having a blast still and I'm still only in Act III and level 41. Haven't even hit the good stuff yet.

That's really weak for the PS4. I think it's been long enough that they should be able to offer a AAA title like Knack on there soon. Is anyone actually buying Knack anymore?

I have two controllers bought a month apart (early December and early January) that has the rubber on the left thumbsticks on BOTH broken and/or rubbing off. I don't have the receipts because they were gifts so warranty doesn't apply to me apparently.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 22, 2014, 01:46:54 PM
You can add me if you want. I'm not super reliable when it comes to being able to join online games with any regularity with two young kids at home but you'll see me on from time to time in the evenings hack'n and slash'n. I'm HyphenNation on PSN.

I think I might actually roll a hardcore character with this version.  icon_eek

What is the appeal of playing this again on a console?

I get to play one of my favourite games on my couch on a bigger screen in HD. No-brainer for me.

I've found I can only play this game an hour at a time, tops. Any more than that and it's just too stressful.  icon_biggrin

I find the same. After an hour I'm tense/burned out and I need to play something else.

Oh my. I'm hooked again. Controller works amazingly well. Better than I ever thought they could pull it off. Glorious HD. From my couch.

Less clicking, more streamlined. Just as fun as on the PC.

This may be as close as I'll ever get to gaming perfection.

I'm justifying this by telling myself that I didn't buy the Reaper of Souls expansion, which is still $30. So I'm really only double-dipping for half of the cost, which is justifiable in terms of this being a definitive edition. Plus it will be worth $30 to not have to figure out the status of my Battlenet account again. I feel the Caine pain on that front.



Same here. I skipped the expansion knowing I was getting a console version anyways.

Just got a call that my pre-order can be picked anytime from 10am-9pm, but he never specified a day. I assume he meant tomorrow, but what if....
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: August 18, 2014, 02:04:34 PM
That sequence is weird. I was definitely able to get the keycard before the generator. However, the bloater sequence played out differently based on my approach.

My first few attempts I'd set up traps on the ramp and try to kill the bloater as he came up the ramp. But that wasn't working because he'd still catch up to me from behind while I tried to kill the Stalkers blocking the hallway. So in later attempts I tried to just sprint down the hall using the shotgun to clear stalkers and when I turned the corner to the hallway with the keycard door there was a bloater waiting for me. It's almost like the game positioned the bloater so I would always have to face him, no matter what my approach.

Hay Day does this but it's so unobtrusive and optional. Basically once in a while you find a ticket lying on the ground that offers you the chance to watch a clip for 1 diamond (a form of in game currency). If you click yes you watch a 30 second ad for another app and then the diamond gets added to your total. The diamonds are not necessary to playing the game and you can ignore the tickets completely.

The hotel basement generator sequence can kiss my ass.

Great game though!
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: August 03, 2014, 02:33:58 PM
This game is great but it's also controller-breakingly frustrating at spots.

So after seeing the side by side of Destiny on the PS3 and PS4 I sold my PS3 and am buying a PS4 tonight. smile 

On the plus side it means I just "finished" several games in my backlog but now I need something to tide me over until Destiny actually launches.

So what game should I buy for the PS4?  I am leaning towards Infamous because it seems like the one I am most likely to be able to play with my kids watching (ages 8 and 6) because while their is a fair amount of violence you can choose to be good and save people. 

What else should I consider?



Infamous is great.

If you're looking for kid friendly the LEGO Marvel game is really fun.

Not kid friendly I'd go with Last of Us or Tomb Raider or Assassins Creed.

If you're into sports FIFA and MLB The Show are pretty great.

What's the jump-scare situation like with this game? Call me a p*ssy if you want, but I hate when my games are filled with that shit.

It's an older title, but I just picked up Cook, Serve, Delicious! and I'm completely addicted to it.  The more freeform way you can progress through the game, choosing your own new foods, food upgrades, and equipment, is a welcome change compared to the super structured way most time management games have you advance.  If you've ever enjoyed a Sally's Spa type game, I highly recommend it.

Oh man, I sunk hours into that game. I think I got my restaurant up to five stars. It's been a while though, may have to fire that back up again.

Catheter made me laugh.  Rest of the trailer did not.  Dumb and Dumber was the only Jim carrey movie that I ever liked.

Looked like a lot of rehashing the original.

Might catch this on netflix.

You didn't like The Truman Show?

I'm on the other end. They are basically paperweights at this point. I've gotten some recent mileage out of The Show but for whatever reason Infamous 2 didn't suck me in and my Xbox One hasn't been turned on in probably three months.

I don't even know what's on the horizon the look forward to... NHL 15, I guess?

I'm with you on this. The first few months of the year were great in terms of gaming content for me (FIFA, AssCreed, Tomb Raider, Infamous, MLB The Show). But now there is nothing on the horizon this year that I'm really interested in except for The Last of Us and NHL 15 (Batman was there, but delayed now).

Crux had to (understandably) back out so this is still up for grabs if anyone wants it.

Where is it $70? On Amazon I'm seeing the PS4 version at the good ol' fashioned $60 price.

$10 hike across the board for all new releases in Canada.  icon_frown

Ugh. Yeah, I think I'd have the same mental block as you at $70. It somehow makes it seem like "almost $100" instead of "almost $50."

Yep, that and with the 13% tax rate here in Ontario it's about $79 when it's all said and done. The game has to be a no-doubter for me to pay that type of cash.

At the old 59.99 pricing I'd be in. With the new 69.99 pricing Sony put in place, it's a wait until later. The $10 jump has crossed some kind of mental barrier for me that is making me REALLY selective about new release purchases.

I think we all should be more upset about the lack of quality games..  On both platforms.

I think there have been plenty of great games. More than I have had time to play anyway.

Heh, just checking back here for the first time since I posted. Didn't realize my choice of words would cause such a discussion. To clarify I didn't mean I was forced to use the product if I bought it, I meant that in order to purchase an Xbox one I had to support MS's Kinect business strategy, which I had no interest in at all. I wanted a new Xbox but didn't want to support the direction they were taking because Kinect was bundled in, thus "forcing it upon me" (maybe "down my throat" was too melodramatic). Consumers like me voted with their dollars and MS is making a change because of it. I consider it a win.
