121  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pony Island on: January 13, 2016, 11:16:33 PM
This is a game in much the same way ďThe Stanley ParableĒ is a game, but also completely different. You will either love it or just walk away confused.  I loved almost every minute of it.  Itís an exercise in 4th wall breaking and some clever logic puzzles thrown in for good measure.  I think the less you know about it the better but from the official about the game description.

Pony Island is a suspense puzzle game in disguise. You are in limbo, trapped in a malevolent and malfunctioning arcade machine devised by the devil himself. The devil detests having his puzzles solved and poor programming exposed; you will need to think outside the box to proceed and you will be insulted when you do.

Itís $5 on Steam.  Give it a shot.

I haven't done any of the side missions yet, so there should still be several hours of other fun after the main story ends.  If I'm not burned out by then.
Two quests you need to check out are the White Glove Society and the Repconn Test Site.  White Glove is probably one of the best questlines in the game with about 5 different ways you can handle the ďsituationĒ. 

Repconn just made me happy.

I played this back on the Wii.  It was good but be warned, the last world is tear-your-hair-out in frustration hard.

This is pretty neat, you can now view your Mario Maker level stats online.  It's also the only way to view how hard your levels are rated as far as I know. 

I'm baffled that my Treetop Hooray level is rated as expert.  I guess I completely missed the mark on my intent of casual bouncy fun!  icon_lol

Overall, I'm having fun but I'm less than impressed with this game.  I've had very few interesting choices to make, none of the quests are all that interesting, and I still end up shooting my way into or out of things 95% of the time.  Maybe I'm still not to the "good" part since I'm not in Vegas yet?
It sounds like youíve been mostly doing ďfillerĒ quests.  Get to New Vegas and the main story opens up a lot.  You will find out what you are supposed to be doing and learn a lot more about the factions that are controlling things.

Unlike Fallout 4, New Vegas seems to really put you at odds with a couple factions from the start.  Of course I could side with the prisoners and the butchers, but they make them seem so cartoonishly pure evil that I'm not sure why I would. 

I was expecting a bit more subtlety and nuance making for tough decisions and deception, so hopefully there is some of that later.
Once you get to New Vegas itself the game becomes quite amazing.  I remember some people were a little turned off by how grey the morality is in some places but I loved it; very in spirit to the original Fallouts.

Fire Emblem Awakening was actually my pick for Game of the Year when it came out.  I had never gotten into a FE game before but I loved every minute of it.

Really looking forward to this one.

Disappointing: The Pillars of Eternity expansion.  Not because its bad, by all accounts it is really good, my problem is it is a midgame expansion instead of a continuation of the story.

I'll take Life is Strange if no one else it interested.  I've been curious about it for a while.

Some pictures of the new stuff!

This is MOST of the items from my CDG pledge.  The cardboard box on the right is filled with the plastic grey gates and there are about a dozen more figures that are duplicates of monsters from the main factions, as well as little plastic stands to display them all in another box.

A comparison of the largest new models in CW with the largest from Blood Rage.

I think the Giant can take it!

Sword lady, maybe not so much.
133  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [3DS] SteamWorld: Heist on: December 07, 2015, 08:25:54 PM
The first Steam World game was pretty good if not terribly deep.  Iím looking forward to this one but will probably pick it up on WiiU instead of 3DS.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Affordable Space Adventures on: December 07, 2015, 06:33:07 PM
I finally got the chance to play this last night and it was a blast.  We had a full three person party and it really made this one of the best Co-op game experiences I have had in quite a while.  Judging by the map, I would say we made it a little over half way through in a single setting and everyone was having fun.

I do think three people may be a bit overkill as the Tech Officer and Pilot roles could easily be done by the same person, but no one really minded either way.   

The mix of humor and challenge was nearly perfect and I got a distinctive Douglas Adams vibe from the cut scenes and info graphics.

If you have someone to play with, I highly recommend picking up this game.

If anyone wants to get the digital version of the game but wants to save a few bucks in tax, you can buy the download code on amazon and input it in the eShop.  You get the code instantly, I just tried it.

Went to pre-order this today, only to discover that it requires 22.5 GB of disc space.  With the one game I have loaded on the WiiU system (Mario 3D world), I only have 22 GB available.  So I'm either going to have to buy an external hard drive or order a physical copy of the game.

Stupid Nintendo.   icon_evil
I canít imagine trying to go with downloadable games on the default hard drive.  Iíve had a 2TB drive hitched to mine since day one.  Works great.

While Nintendo recommends against it, I also know someone who simply uses a 1TB thumb drive.  He says it works fine.
138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 01, 2015, 03:30:42 PM
I read in one review that the developer had actually sent a guidebook to reviewers to help them get through one area early on that was important to the story.  The reviewer said that even with the guidebook, it was easy to miss what you were looking for in that area.

I’m still pretty excited for this one.
139  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Cthulhu Wars (Board game) [Picture Heavy Warning] on: November 28, 2015, 07:45:03 PM
The expansions from the first wave are finally shipping.  Should be here in a week or two.

ALSO, if you like the base game, you might want to hurry up and do a Late Backer Signup here if you think you will ever want the expansions.  This was a 2nd Kickstarter that just ended and they have been pretty upfront that because of the costs to produce, this might be your only chance to get the expansion content.
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Hell froze over and Blizzard made a new IP] Overwatch on: November 25, 2015, 08:47:09 PM
What classes did you try playing?  All of the assault classes follow pretty standard FPS conventions but some of the others feel very different. 

My personal favorite character was the Ice Girl (Mei I think?)  Her gun was very short range and didn’t do much damage but it slowly froze targets, locking them in place.  She was also pretty beefy on the health side of things, so even though she didn’t do much damage, she could outlast most other characters in a 1on1 fight.  One of her abilities allowed you to build a wall of ice in front of you; I discovered it had another purpose.  If I looked down before using it, I could lift myself or anyone near me into the air, allowing us to get to places that were otherwise unreachable.  Her final ability was to encase herself completely in ice, which made her invulnerable for about 5 seconds, during which she would heal about 50% of her health.

I went an entire round once without dying with her.  Was a lot of fun.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Helldivers: "Come on you apes! You wanna live forever?" on: November 08, 2015, 03:37:34 PM
Of course... I just bought a PS4 because it was on sale.  Helldivers was one of like 3 exclusives on the system.  Now I have even less justification for my purchase.  icon_lol
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: October 27, 2015, 07:14:46 PM
New update on 11/4 fixes my biggest gripe with the game!  Checkpoints! This will get me back into making levels again. 

Also included in the update, variable power-ups.  Are you small? Then you get a mushroom.  Already big?  You get a fire-flower.  This should allow for levels that encourage exploring a lot more than the game currently does.

Do you have a review for Fatal Frame coming up soon?  I'm interested in it largely because I would like a second game other than ZombiU that actually uses the game-pad for something meaningful.
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/Ps4] Soma on: October 18, 2015, 05:07:27 AM
I finished the game tonight. Not much can be said about the ending without spoiling it other than to say it makes an impact. Also, the real ending is after the credits so make sure you wait.

Overall, a very good game that I would recommend.

If they go high end in hardware this thing is DOA. Nintendo will be fools if they try to go head to head with MS and Sony. It's a waste of time. They need the affordable second system that can play their 1st party games which don't need Cryengine graphics to be enjoyable.

They already made that console.  It's called the WiiU.  icon_razz

I’ve been pretty happy with my WiiU.  As a predominantly PC gamer it has the most console exclusives of the current generation.  What I am most interested in is whether or not it will be backwards compatible with the WiiU and if they will finally have a connected eShop.    The WiiU has a lot of good games at this point and it would be a shame if people missed out on them because they decided to skip the WiiU and move onto its successor.
149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (10/13) on: October 12, 2015, 03:31:56 AM
I'll pick up Yoshiís Wooly World eventually but the lukewarm reviews prevent it from being a day-one.
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: October 09, 2015, 07:51:21 PM
Ok, I have now attempted three Expert 100 Mario Runs.  That is 300+ lives.

Between all three runs, I completed a total of 12 courses.
Of those 12 courses, only 4 of the levels deserved to exist.
Only two were actually fun to play.


Expert levels suck.  That is all.
151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry: Primal takes it back to the Stone Age on: October 06, 2015, 06:50:06 PM
I give them credit for an interesting setting but I didnít play more than an hour or so of FC4.  I really hope they tap into the setting instead of just making Farcry with a new coat of paint.

Can anyone confirm that the servers have improved?  I tried playing on the day it came out and experienced really long wait times with players who were constantly dropping.  In the games defense, it was actually pretty fun, but not worth the instability.

Is it as bad as Alien: isolation? Despite the developers stating that the AI wasn't scripted, somehow the Alien was always within the same exact part of the ship as me within 30 seconds to 1 minute. It made exploring an exercise in frustration.
I thought Alien: Isolation was far far worse.  The alien AI in that was actually tethered to you at a distance based on your difficulty setting.  Alien was also a lot less forgiving with its ďstealthĒ mechanics.  In SOMA, there seem to be a lot more checkpoints, you CAN actually run from the monsters and getting hit isnít an instant fail state.
155  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/Ps4] Soma on: September 26, 2015, 10:47:27 PM
Iíve put about two hours into Soma so far.  I really like it.  Frictional Games does a great job of making environments themselves interesting and I enjoy just looking through all the bits of lore you can find in the environment.  I just recently finished Alien: Isolation and the difference in world building is night and day.  I never really cared about anything going on in Alien but here everything is mysterious and fascinating.

So far this feels more like a straight sci-fi story than horror but I am perfectly OK with that.  The game did make me feel bad about my actions twice within the first hour though, so there is that.
156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: September 25, 2015, 07:34:57 PM
Depending on the path you take it has a slightly variable length.  There is also the secret shortcut right after the first split that lets you skip right to the end if you use the star to make the long jump to the left.

Iím surprised you didnít post your Yoshiís Day Out level.  I think that is one of your best.  My only problem with it was the Lakitu, which seemed strangely out of place in the level.
157  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: September 25, 2015, 05:48:29 PM
Havenít uploaded anything in a while.  I always enjoyed secrets and branching paths in Mario levels, so this is my take on that.  See if you can find all five paths!

Has difficulty been tweaked at all?  I enjoyed the game for what it was but lost interest pretty fast when I felt there was no danger of my city breaking down.
159  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: September 23, 2015, 08:40:13 PM
Odd, I could have sworn you could skip through but youíre right, I just tested it.

 To be honest I havenít played the 100 Mario challenge much.  Itís more fun to make than it is to play, especially when there isnít some greater overall goal.  Custom over worlds would be fun.
160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Super Mario Maker (Wii U) on: September 23, 2015, 04:30:59 PM
Iím still getting stars but itís definitely disproportionate to the number of people who try the level.  Most donít finish, even if the level is pretty easy. 

I donít think Nintendo gave enough incentive for people to actually complete levels as opposed to just holding select to skip the level and getting the costume at the end.  A better solution would have been, instead of skipping the level and moving on, it replaces the current level with a different one.  That way you can still get out of levels that suck but still have to complete X amount.
