Iím reserving judgment.  Almost all games are forced to cut out features before launch.  Early access just gives people a backdoor look into the process.

 I also think people may have been expecting too much.  Double Fine makes fun games but I would not say they are known for depth in their gameplay.  SpaceBase was never going to be Dwarf Fortress and even expecting Evil Genius levels of complexity might have been pushing it.

All that said, the ďfinalĒ product may still be crap, but I think it should be judged on what it is as opposed to what it could have been.

If I recall correctly, Fallout 2 had numerous bugs that would break the game outright on release, so this is just par for the course.  icon_smile

Which is why i never bought another Interplay title. I was so angry when my save no longer worked and they were basically like 'yep, you need to start over.'   *Fist Shaking*
ButÖbutÖFallout 2 was worth it!  Itís the only game Iíve finished multiple times, and each time I managed to find something new.

Wasteland 2 has some mighty big shoes to fill in my mind.

So folks who REALLY wanna wait until it's "done" might need to wait for some hotfixes. Though by the time you reach the California content (maybe 20-30 hours), maybe they'll have issued some patches by then.  icon_smile

Not quite out.  Actual release is next week. 

Iíve never played a Dynasty Warriors game so I expect to pick this up at some point.  Most of the reviews have actually been pretty positive with a couple exceptions that just seem to hate the DW formula.

By the way.  Since people might be interested in what has become of MC since it first arrived, I invite you to our server.  This is a Tekkit server and lets you do things you canít in the normal game, like build space ships, nuclear power plants, and take part in interplanetary travel.

$11.99 Metacritic score - 66
Itís actually pretty good if very short.  I think some negativity came from the fact that it released at $20 for a game that could be beaten in about 3 hours without rushing.

Ha, I suck at arena. Six is my best run, but usually I win 2-3.
If you only win 2-3 itís still a better value than buying packs outright.
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: September 09, 2014, 11:11:26 PM
You should definitely save your gold for Arena.  I get 2-3 runs a week just from dailies and each run nets me 2 decks on average plus some additional dust or gold.

With the exception of Gelbin and the Naxx cards, all of my epics have been rewards from arena.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: September 09, 2014, 09:55:59 PM
I would say itís a little odd but possible if he got really lucky in Arena.
I consider myself a fairly casual player and my epics are:

Vancleef
King Krush
Jaraxxus
Baron Rivendare
Loatheb
Feugen
Stalagg
Cairne Blood Hoof (Gold)
Gelbin (Gold)
Hogger
Maexxna
Gruul (Gold)
KelíThuzad
Ragnaros (Gold)

I've spent a grand total of $5 on the game. (Mostly to get Gelbin)

Also, was he a priest?  I have a golden mind vision that always gives me a gold version of the enemy cards when I use it.  May explain some of them.  I am one of the few people who knows what a Gold Coin card looks like.  icon_biggrin
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hearthstone on: September 09, 2014, 09:34:52 PM
Rank doesnít mean much when it resets monthly.  My Priest deck is about 1/3 golds and I usually only play until my daily challenges run out. Donít forget that you get gold backs for simply leveling up heroes. 

Iíve actually made the same observation about it seeming harder to get past the early ranks.  I think itís the unfortunate fact that a lot of people will just look up a really strong cheap deck online and use that.  Takes a lot of fun of making a deck out of the equation and makes it all about random draw order.  icon_confused

Honestly, I am interested to see how it plays on the 3DS, but since Iím only likely to play local co-op with friends a handheld version does hold much appeal.

this game is frigging great.

The expansion adds a couple nonlethal options.  Make sure to play that once you finish the main game, itís really good.

Xenoblade Chronicles is likely to be an anomaly instead of the norm since developers will not want to limit their install base.  In that way, it will be an upgrade that is nice to have instead of something that is mandatory.

Except now developers not only have more system power to use, but a second analog stick built in, AND an extra pair of L and R buttons.

So either all the functions will get used, and alienate the old users, or none of the functions will get used, because the install base won't have the consoles.

This is EXACTLY like Kinect on the XB1 and 360. Not everybody will have one, so NOBODY will make a game that requires it.
I would hope we see things similar to Resident Evil on the 3DS, which had multiple control scheme options you could use in the option menu.  One of which supported the 2nd analogue stick attachment.

The base 3DS also already has multiple graphics settings (in a sense) when you consider many games drop in frame rate if you try to play with 3D enabled.  The new processor may just mean that you will be able to leave the 3D on AND keep your smooth frame rate.

PCís have multiple control and graphics options, why shouldnít console games?

This is going to bomb and going to bomb hard.
My guess is that they will recall the old models in stores and start to only sell the new ones similarly to what they did with the non-premium WiiU’s.  The original press release really only noted that the eShop and browser would benefit from the extra processor power anyways.  Xenoblade Chronicles is likely to be an anomaly instead of the norm since developers will not want to limit their install base.  In that way, it will be an upgrade that is nice to have instead of something that is mandatory.

As someone who purchased the original 3DS on launch, but not the XL, I am very happy to pick this upgrade up once it comes out.

Sort of like Terms of Endearment or perhaps Fried Green Tomatoes...but with vampires and werewolves?  I could see that working. 
I said drama, not chick flick.  Tongue

I was thinking more along the lines of the White Wolf/World of Darkness setting.  Less action, more politics, mystery and intrigue.

What I really want to know is what happens to all of your games if you upgrade? Aren't Nintendo accounts tied to the physical hardware?
Youíve always been able to do a system transfer from one device to another.  You activate the transfer and once the system verifies the data on the new system, all data on the old is deleted.  It is the worst possible way of keeping your data but it does work.  The fact that the new functionality is the ability to backup to PC makes me wonder if they finally improving this.  The new network ID's already keep track of the games you own so the fact that it is not consistent with PSN or Steam is just stubbornness on their part.
152  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: NEW 3DS and XL on: August 29, 2014, 06:51:46 PM
It took two years for the 3DS to gain speed, abandoning it already would cause a riot.

Besides, while the new processor is better, I do not believe itís enough of an improvement to constitute a whole new generation.  The other improvements, 2nd analogue stick notwithstanding, are not going to make much of a difference for games.
153  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / NEW 3DS and XL on: August 29, 2014, 04:34:39 PM
Well, this is unlike Nintendo.  New versions of the 3DS and XL have been announced in Japan but this time they are not just cosmetic upgrades.  The new versions include a second analogue stick, an improved processor, and at-least one exclusive game in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles.

I'm actually very surprised by this, since in the past, Nintendo has gone out of its way to ensure that hardware redesigns do not invalidate the previous releases.  That said, I'm extremely excited for this upgrade.  Maybe I will finally be able to play and finish Kid Icarus...

better 3D

better battery (up to 7h)

CPU improved, makes browsing Miiverse / eShop much faster.
you can switch designs now (covers)

There is also some speculation/rumors that, with the inclusion of the new buttons, the new models will function in conjunction with the WiiU.  Basically giving the option of an extra game pad for WiiU games that supports it.  While definitely just a rumor at the moment, if that is true, it will be huge.

Buffing the slimes is a must since the clone retains any buff the parent has.  Save up your slimes until you at least two buff cards in your hand.  Also donít play more than 4 minions total or the AI will just wipe the board.

Was actually pretty easy with my priest control deck.  He got me down to 12 health when he was in his early mode but when he switched to mind control mode I wiped the floor with him.  I made it back up to 30 health by the end of the match.  I had a much harder time with the Dragon boss.

This is mostly an explorative post.  I help co-run a Minecraft Tekkit server over on OO but lately our visitors have been pretty low.  Would anyone on GT be interested in playing on our server? 

For those that donít know, Tekkit is a launcher that manages a mod pack for you, so once you download the launcher everything is ready to go without any added hassle.  It includes things like industrial machines, automated quarries and even the option to eventually build space ships and fly to the moon and mars.

Itís a full survival server with the exception that we start everyone off with a Diamond pickaxe and a Jetpack to get started.  Refueling the jetpack once it runs out is your own problem.

Here is our world map and if there is interest I will post instructions for how to access the server.
