I agree. I normally free roam in games like this as well, leaving the main story until the end. In this one, I think I would recommend doing a few main storyline missions first, then going and doing whatever floats your boat.

Add me to the list of people that really like the game so far.  I started the game kind of 'free roaming' - ignoring the main questline so I could get the hang of combat first.  With only the most basic skills and not being the best (AC/Batman) combat person, I found myself quickly facing a Power 8 Captain and his grunts. That didn't end well.  But then I got this whole revenge vibe going and went after him again...twice.  On the third go-around of them using my face as a punching bag, I was smart enough to run away and use stealth to lure just the Captain into a one-on-one fight.  This guy was like a blood hound. I just could't shake him. Anyway, 1 on 1 it was a cakewalk, and he eventually fled back to an orc-infested area when I had him badly hurt, and he got away.  That was really fun.

After that I went on to the main questline and did some early missions, which helped teach some mechanics I was sorely missing.  I can play most of the game as a stealthy assassin so far, picking and choosing when I want to enter the 5+ orc fights.  The biggest issue I have right now is that I often hit the Square button when it tells me to hit the 'X' because I am so used to the xbox controller, which of course screws up my combat flow.  But that is more comical than frustrating, as I have done it so often, I just laugh at myself for being so inept.  So far though, the game is just plain old fun.

booted this up this morning prior to heading out for work.  You can see a lot Assassin Creed/Batman in this game.  I've already took down two captains I think just by chance as they seem to wander a lot. 

Anyway, I am happy with the purchase

Same here, minus the taking down two captains.  I'm most interested in playing this as a quasi-stealth game, although I'm thinking this will be very difficult to do considering the amount of enemies and I'm guessing it wasn't designed to be played that way.  At any rate, I'll try and see how successful I can be playing that way if I focus on taking abilities that are geared toward a stealth-style gameplay.  I seem to want every game to be Splinter Cell, even if it isn't designed to be.   icon_neutral

I'm playing as well.  Really can't give it enough praise.  This game is extremely well done.

Season Finale went by so damned fast.  It was over before I knew it.

So many great storylines.  I freaking love Arya Stark!!

Well, since the Flyers got embarrassed by the *&!@#$%! Rangers, I will drown my sorrows in the WildStar beta all weekend; taking my anger out in a perpetual pvp frenzy. 
Unlike a lot of others apparently, I think it is an incredibly fun game.

Just watched Season 4 premiere episode.

Is it possible I could love Arya Stark anymore than I do!!??!!

Good enough.  Thank you, Crusis.
9  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Amazon Music and I-Phone Question on: April 02, 2014, 11:43:29 PM
Ok... so I can be very, very computer/tech challenged at times.  Here is a dumb question:

If I switch from my crappy Android phone to a new I-phone, am I going to be able to easily access all my amazon music purchases from the new I-phone?

Thanks in advance for helping the tech-challenged.

As a Prime member, this sounds totally awesome.

Is there any negative I'm missing before I jump all over this!?!

I had a chance to play the game in two different beta sessions and didn't like it.  That being said, I know how long you've been waiting for an MMO to come along and not disappoint you, Arclight.  I really do hope you love it.  Crossing my fingers for you, man.

Because I want to get a head start on the Player Studio (player created and sold content). I have a couple friends who have been pretty successful augmenting their income with similar setups for DOTA2, TF2, Planetside 2, and now EQN.

It just helps that this looks fun, and I know it's going to be a pretty big game. And the bonus items will help ease some of the tedium of resource collecting and management.

Yeah, I think if I had your artistic ability I would do the same thing.  If the game takes off, I could see people making some money off their creations for sure.  Especially if an item they make gets hot.  How cool would that be?!

Nice.  I am torn on this one.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Frozen Endzone on: December 05, 2013, 02:54:48 AM
Anyone who remembers Frozen Synapse (and liked it) might be interested in Frozen Endzone.

The beta becomes available Dec. 5th.  (assuming you pre-order the game).  Apparently you get two beta copies with one pre-order.  (one for a friend).

I think it looks awesome - but I would imagine it's not everyone's cup of tea.  Anyway, if you want to know more, I found this today.  The video is actually pretty good.  Has some gameplay.

Not sure you could be much later to the party than I am on The Secret World.
My brother and I are playing it together, and are just about ready to head to the Savage Coast (In other words - pretty early in the game I think).
So far I love it.  A lot.  This game is a ton of fun!
No idea if it stays that way, but so far it just gets better every night we play.
LOVE the story!
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2013, 09:28:05 PM
I didn't really enjoy it on the PC to be honest.  So little in fact... I didn't even finish Act II on the initial playthrough.  I still consider myself about 70/30 PC gamer over Console gamer - but I enjoy D3 much more on console so far.  That being said... I also enjoyed Torchlight more on the 360 than on the PC - which is probably not true of most people.
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2013, 09:10:33 PM
Count me in as another person who is extremely impressed with the 360 version of Diablo III.  I am playing a Monk on Hard difficulty level, and have not enjoyed playing a character class of any type in any game this much since the Assassin in Diablo II.  I'm not entirely sure if I would enjoy the ranged characters as much, as I like the precision targeting with my Witch Hunter using the mouse.  But for melee characters at least... I am loving this on the xbox!
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Total War: Rome 2 on: September 03, 2013, 09:38:13 PM
I don't think I'm as big a fan as Razgon, but I'm probably close.  

And all I've done is get through most of the prologue so it's way too early to judge, but so far I am pretty disappointed as well.  I have a string of curse words a mile long just waiting to unleash, but I'll wait until I experience more of the game before I let loose.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Homeworld: Shipbreakers on: September 03, 2013, 09:35:26 PM
The influences of Homeworld are obviously there.

But I need to see a lot more before I get too excited.

I suppose this is a good thing.  Not exactly what I've been waiting for, but better than a kick in the ass I guess.

How much game content is there if you don't set foot in Cyrodil?  If it's a healthy amount, I'm not sure I see the big deal.

Is that an option that can be turned off as well?  (the help icons that is)
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360/PC] Remember Me on: June 03, 2013, 09:05:31 PM
Really enjoyed the review guys  (I'm thinking I read the PC review?).  And you've really made me want the game.   (Edit:  It says right on there it is the ps3 review, duh)

But honestly - I have no idea which platform to get it for.  Can you offer any recommendations with that question in mind?
28  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Am I the only one that would like a good old fashioned pay to play MMO? on: June 03, 2013, 09:00:10 PM
EvE Online will probably remain with the pay model - at least for the foreseeable future.

And then there is ESO - have they announced a model yet?

29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA Castlestorm on: June 02, 2013, 02:37:16 AM
I tried the demo today.  It's pretty fun.  I may get the full game.

So between the Dust 514 and EVE engines - they are possibly making a television show?

I don't know if it will be successful - but it sure looks cool.

32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crowd funding to save Homeworld on: April 22, 2013, 09:50:05 PM
Well....  I'm not sure how I should feel about this honestly.  I guess I should choose to be optimistic, warm, and fuzzy.   Juggling!

34  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: April 11, 2013, 08:33:48 AM
OK - that's good to know.  Hey TiLT, can you give us a brief update on the big patch you got for the Foundry?  Anything worth mentioning?
35  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: April 11, 2013, 01:00:40 AM
So, I'm a little confused on weapons.  Is there a weapon system in the game that lets any fighter/thief type use axes, longswords, shortswords, maces, spears, etc.. etc...?

Or will a thief be dual wielding daggers the whole time, and a 2-weapon fighter using a greatsword the entire game?   I realize it might sound like a really moronic question, but I honestly don't know the answer.
36  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Defiance (formerly One Earth) on: April 07, 2013, 12:55:42 AM
I would agree the loot system would be on the south side of robust.  

But, to give you a little more of a response:  I'm only EGO level 98 or so (which in this game is practically nothing) - so I'm not the best person to answer you.  That being said, Defiance doesn't strike me as the type of game that gear "looks" are of any importance.  And I'm not talking in a sense of what a player deems important, but more the game itself.  Functionality and/or look of a weapon in action is a slightly different story however.  There are some weapons that really stand out in big firefights, but not so much because of how they look - more so on what you see happening during the battles, and tracing the "bullets" back to the gun wielder himself.  Clothes/armor/outfits are nice, and even have a fair level of detail; but I can't say I've seen a great amount of variety - nor is anyone ever standing still long enough to notice anyway.  Vehicles have some (if not much) variety, but again... it's not like most games where you look around for, or prance around with any type of super vehicle; at least not that I've seen.  Regarding loot drops themselves; so far for me, I get excited over finding new weapons, but really that's about the only thing with respect to loot that's exciting so far.  No idea if that changes.

Just one person's opinion, but maybe that helps.
37  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Defiance (formerly One Earth) on: April 04, 2013, 09:36:51 PM
Many more hours in since my last impressions.
New impressions:  Still very fun.
38  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Defiance (formerly One Earth) on: April 02, 2013, 09:59:28 PM
Only played a couple hours since launch.  Quite a few folks seem to be having launch day issues.  I guess I'm lucky, cause no issues here.  So far, it has really surprised me.  Lots of fun to play.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: March 29, 2013, 10:56:26 PM
I agree.
 
And in a game where "loot drops" are (supposed to be) such a core component - this hurts.
40  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: March 23, 2013, 01:45:49 AM
TiLT: Maybe I have more faith in people than most - but I think adventures like yours will rise to the top after the game is released.  RP'ers especially tend to form pretty tight groups in games like this, and adventures like yours will be a welcome sight to them - and the word will spread.  I'd like to think so anyway.
