I like it!  I loved the original AoW but couldn't get into AoW2 for some reason.  This has pulled me back in completely.  My biggest complaint right now is a bit of a silly one.  The game has a great hero editor but the game forces you to use a premade character in the primary campaigns.  I would feel more connected to the story if it was my own character instead of one that was forced on me.

I picked up Age2 when it hit $5 and was rather unimpressed, even at that price.  The gameplay was still good but they did the bare minimum required to ďupdateĒ the game.  Not to mention that the game actually ran worse on my modern computer than it did when I first played it over 10 years ago.  Maybe this one will turn out better but I'm not holding my breath.

My copy is downloading.  To be honest, I'm not entirely sure why I funded this.  I have vaguely fond memories of Carmegeddon 2 but their promo materials really turn me off.  I guess lets see what the game itself does!

I'm still going strong in Titanfall. Mostly by myself frown but still having a blast. I'm at prestige 3 but I think I saw Mikagami at prestige 5 the other day....gotta catch up.


I still jump on...  Mostly solo as well.   I just hit 46.. slow leveler that I am

I just made it to level 1!  Super Duper Edition!  It made me realize how dependent I became on my upgrades.  My whole first match afterwards I ran around doing nothing but kicking people because I couldn't kill anyone with the default weapons.  icon_lol

I watched a couple episodes of American Horror Story on a whim and ended up finishing both seasons in a little over a week.  That doesnít happen for me very often.  I donít actually care for most ďhorrorĒ in general but this was much more like a character driven drama with horrific elements than a straight up horror story.  Nothing was particularly scary or gruesome (Aside from the opening credits oddly enough).  Itís an anthology series so each season is a self-contained story; I would say the first season was more compelling but I enjoyed both.

Question for the PC version:

How does one select the preferred loadout for pilot and titan? In the campaign matches I played last night I am frantically clicking on "Assassin" and "Tank" loadouts before the match starts yet I always spawn with the carbine instead of smart pistol and Atlas instead of the other one.
Hit esc at the start of the round.

Is there a way to play against fellow low-level folks?  I just jumped into the campaign last night (figured that's as good a place as any to start) and when I got to the end of my last match, I noticed that I was the lowest level player by at least 15 levels.  I was 4, everyone else was at least 19.  Or do you just have to endure being target practice (me, doubly so) through the low levels until you gain some XP?
If you are playing in attrition mode donít worry about being the lowest ranked person on the team.  Just do your best to avoid enemy pilots and go hunting for the enemy NPCS.  Killing a bunch of them is actually more valuable for your team than going only for pilots.  Playing to avoid is a valuable skill to learn so this is good practice anyway.  In this game more than any other FPS, if you stop moving you are dead.

Also, some people have already flipped their rank over and started again (after rank 50 you go back to 1 with a fancy icon).

141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC] Year Walk on: March 07, 2014, 03:30:38 AM
Well, that was mildly unnerving.   I just finished Year Walk, which was released today on Steam.  This was originally released on iOS to rave reviews so I was eager to give it a shot.  I suppose itís best described as a point and click adventure game, or at least walk and click.   Very atmospheric with a healthy helping of horror and disturbing imagery based around Swedish folklore.  I canít describe it much more without giving away the too much but I would say you give it a look.

I finished the whole thing in about 3 hours so itís pretty short but it does seem like the developers reworked a number of puzzles and the controls for the PC release.  If not full price, at least check it out once it goes on sale if you want a slightly creepy experience. 
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Mighty Quest for Epic Loot on: March 06, 2014, 07:49:24 PM
I tried it when it went open beta.  My impressions were a bit “meh”.  I like the idea of it but I don’t feel like the base building or the attacking is fleshed out enough to be fun long term.  I also found it a bit grindy.  The part of the game I enjoyed most was the building and in order to build anything meaningful I would have had to sink a ton of time into it.  Maybe if you had a group of friends to compete with to make the best dungeon it might be more compelling but single player wasn’t doing much for me. 

Regardless, it’s free so why not check it out for yourself?

The WiiU has certainly taken its time to get going but right now it has a WAAAY better selection of exclusives than the XB1 or PS4.  Given that most games coming out in the next couple months are also hitting on PC I donít see that changing anytime soon either.

The problem is that third-party support for the WiiU is all but dead.  The current library, the upcoming first-party games, plus a few other announced games (like X and Bayonetta 2) are pretty much all the Wii U will ever have.
Itís true but less dire than that sounds on the surface.  Games that are not designed from the ground up for the WiiU were never going to sell well in the first place.  Ports from the XB1 or PS4 are just a bad idea.  If given the option of a graphically superior version or inferior port, people will always choose the better looking (baring any other version problems).  Itís no different from me buying every game I can on PC because I know it will be superior to the console versions. That pretty much leaves exclusives, which are rare now days, regardless of which console they are for.

Just curious here, can anyone name 5 PS4 or 5 XB1 exclusives that will be out this year?

Not really.  Itís a linear story with a clear-cut ending.  I suppose you could try to get all of the upgrades but I had most of them within the 4 hour timeframe.  If you went for everything you MIGHT increase the length to 6 hours but I doubt you would want to do it more than once.

Still, unless they jacked the price up (I think it was $6 on 3DS), I do think the game is good enough and worth one play through.

While some legendaries are amazing I would say the majority are very situational and in most cases, you would be better off with more standard ďgoodĒ and reliable cards.

I haven't decided if I agree or disagree with this, so I at least agree that it's partially accurate smile

I know I've had games decided because of Legendaries  played against me.  I also know I've one many due to playing them (maybe the one's you feel are amazing).


Well, letís take for example Deathwing; which looks just amazing.  Kill everything on the board and get a 12-12 creature?  Yes please!  Only, you also lose every card in your hand.  If you play it too early you are asking to lose against a Priest, Rogue, Mage or even Shaman. 

Priests have shadow word death and mind control. (As a dominantly priest player, I will always keep at least one of these in my hand until I have no choice but to play them.)
Rogue has assassinate.
Mage has polymorph.
Shaman has frog.

Those are just the cards that will completely remove Deathwing from play; there are others that will greatly hinder it as well.  Change attack to 1 etc.
Most (but not all) lengendaries have similar drawbacks.  They are very much all or nothing cards.  They will either make you win very fast or lose horribly as a result of relying on them.
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/Vita/PC] SteamWorld Dig on: March 03, 2014, 05:35:25 PM
Nope, but I played it on 3DS.  Itís good if a bit short.  It looks like Terraria but it is closer to Metroid if you mined resources to get your upgrades.  There are also puzzle chambers to unlock additional special abilities.  My only complaint was that the whole thing can be finished in about 4 hours.

I think they show this ability specifically in the trailer....but it may have been at a specific point.
Rope arrows are in the game but limited in use to when the game tells you that you can use them.

Bought it from GameFly during the sale, pre-loaded and ready to go.  I really don't give a shit what most of these so-called reviewers think.  From what I've read, and admittedly I shouldn't be that surprised, is that it's not exactly like the original so it sucks.


Which is funny because they knocked down Batman Origins because it was the same as the last two. 
That’s a bit different though.  Not adding anything new to a sequel is bad.  Taking out features that a previous game in the series had is worse.  I consider the inability to jump or use rope arrows to navigate a level pretty big omissions.  The original Thief games had a lot of emergent gameplay from the way the AI reacted and the freedom of movement that you had.

One of the video reviews I watched (I think Sessler) mentioned that the game seems to have freedom at first but after a while you realize that you are basically railroaded into a set of options.  It may not be a simple straight corridor but it is a set of two corridors that you choose from.

Yeah he did the hounds IIRC.
Hounds + Buzzard + creature buff is devastating.  Not only does it clear the board of pretty much anything the enemy has at the time but it fills you hand with cards as well.  A warning sign to watch for is if a hunter is letting you keep a bunch of weak minions on the board instead of killing them off.  Itís one hound per enemy minion and he gets one card for each beats he summons.

I often try to combine it with a snake trap for even more cards.
