41  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!

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.

The influences of Homeworld are obviously there.

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

SR:R !!
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Crowd funding to save Homeworld on: July 20, 2013, 03:04:29 PM
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.

Gearbox re-releasing Homeworlds in HD

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.
47  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: July 10, 2013, 02:25:12 PM
Hmmm.....       ninja
48  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360/PC] Remember Me on: June 05, 2013, 02:49:23 AM
Is that an option that can be turned off as well?  (the help icons that is)
49  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?
50  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?

51  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.
52  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: DUST 514 - (FPS MMO game in EVE universe) on: April 28, 2013, 11:22:31 AM
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.

(I suggest watching it at 1080p fullscreen btw)


53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 24, 2013, 11:32:33 PM
How are the HD textures?  Noticeably better or just a tad better?
54  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!
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Company of Heroes 2 on: April 16, 2013, 01:12:47 AM
Excellent!  Thanks.
56  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?
57  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.
58  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.
59  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.
60  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.
61  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.
62  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.  
63  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: March 22, 2013, 08:32:44 PM
Hmmm.... I'm not really liking the game so far.  I also am hesitant to be a negative voice, as I have not played very long.  I finished the tutorial, tooled around the city for a couple quests, tried out the first part of TiLT's adventure - and my first impressions of the game on the whole are poor. 

The controls seem sluggish, the graphics look washed out (at top settings), the combat is average to poor when I compare it to GW2 or TERA, and the overall presentation is just blah.  That being said, I really can't stand coming into threads and being the only negative nancy - so I think I'll leave it at that.  It's almost like I'm missing something.  I will try it again later this weekend; maybe my entire perspective will change.

64  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: March 19, 2013, 09:49:18 PM
Looking forward to trying it out, TiLT.
65  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Neverwinter on: March 15, 2013, 10:23:22 AM
Thanks for the writeup ritt - it was a good read. 
Gratz on the Foundry beta access tilt!
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stardrive on: March 10, 2013, 12:17:41 PM
I just got this as a gift.  Very early impressions are excellent.  I'll report more after I've spent some quality time with the game.

Realize that I'm a longtime fan of Neverwinter Nights, having spent a criminal amount of time in the editors for those games. I was even awarded with a NWN Hall of Fame position for the module I actually released. smile Getting into the game even just a few days earlier to get a head start on content creation is worth a lot to someone like me if I want to get my creations noticed.

That's awesome TiLT.  Being a creator as well, I know how much effort it takes.  Looking forward to playing your stuff!

...what looks like a really solid implementation of user made content for dungeons a la Neverwinter Nights and the mission creation tools for CoH/CoV.



That is what has me the most interested.
And I watched a video of the thief in action, and it actually appears he had some "weight" to his attacks, which is nice.  I'll keep an eye on it as well.
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Age of Wonders 3 on: February 06, 2013, 07:54:27 PM
Holy cow! This is fantastic news.
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 3 or Dishonored? on: December 28, 2012, 04:07:48 PM
I had a friend ask me this exact question on Christmas day. It took me about .5 seconds to recommend Dishonored. What an insanely awesome game.
71  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Merry Christmas and Holiday Loot 2012 on: December 25, 2012, 12:55:04 AM
Winning the AFC North.  Don't forget that.   (Congrats to your Ravens btw)

72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elemental: War of Magic on: December 25, 2012, 12:47:11 AM
Doop:  My advice: Stay away from Elemental, bud.  It's about as enjoyable as watching the Red Sox was this year.......

73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sacred 2: Ice & Blood on: December 22, 2012, 12:32:18 PM
That's a lot of gaming for 9 bucks.  Sacred 2 is a big game.  Thanks for the update.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2012: GOTY/GOAT of the year? on: November 27, 2012, 10:59:25 PM
So far it is Dishonored or Dragon's Dogma.  I need to finish Dishonored first (I think) before declaring a winner.
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good Tactical TBS Games? on: November 19, 2012, 10:58:04 PM
The Banner Saga may be exactly what you're looking for.

It's a kickstarter game, and I've been following it for awhile now.  If graphics aren't a big deal, but gameplay and strategy/tactics is - you should definately keep an eye on this.

Here's a recent video (about 5 minutes long) that does a good job explaining the multiplayer portion of the game:

76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Drox Operative - by Soldak on: November 12, 2012, 11:26:36 PM
Demo's been released.  Only reason I tried it is because I remembered Hark's post here.

I'm not ready to give any "review" of the demo yet - but I will say I played it A LOT longer than I thought I would.   thumbsup

Check Hark's link above if interested.
77  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: DUST 514 - (FPS MMO game in EVE universe) on: October 31, 2012, 01:29:51 AM
So the new trailer is pretty cool.  I can't get over the decision to keep this ps3 exclusive - but what do I know?

GT Link


If someone wants to move the thread to Console Gaming since it's ps3 exclusive, (even though it's an MMO) - I think it's just as appropriate as keeping it here.  Certainly doesn't matter to me.
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] XCOM: Enemy Unknown on: October 26, 2012, 07:30:41 PM
Nope. You get a point allotment. Each soldier or alien costs XX points depending on his worth. It's a pretty cool system really. Human soldiers are pretty customizable. The more awesomerrr you make them, the more they cost.  Its not very hard to pickup at all.
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PC/PS3] XCOM: Enemy Unknown on: October 26, 2012, 01:53:52 PM
I've played maybe 10 mp matches or so. All but two against my brother where we chose the options. They were fun for what they are. Tried a couple matches against random opponents who both quit halfway through when they were losing. Typical I suppose. I would imagine if they had been ranked games, the competition would have been better and they wouldn't have quit early if down a troop or two. That is a guess though, as I've yet to try it. My guess is that people play unranked mostly to test team builds - at least thats what I would imagine its used for.
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallen Enchantress on: October 25, 2012, 02:07:16 AM
Early impressions:  It's great.  I've even tried the campaign! *gasp!*  It's actually pretty good!  ...so far.

I haven't hit late game in sandbox yet, which will tell us a lot.  But so far, so good.
