The thing I notice most is that while threads still get quite a lot of views, no one bothers to comment on them.  The few people who do still post content stop because itís not fun to talk to empty walls.

For example, I remember sliding into a new location to find a large, pastel dreamscape of sand and pillars and thinking look! Over there, a building of some ancient majesty!  I could explore over there...or those pillars have a nice, ascending pattern...maybe I could climb--who the hell is that guy hopping up and down over there?  What is he an idiot?  Look at those pillars, though, they sure are enticing.  I could just--goddamnit, now the dude is sliding right into my face.  Out of the way, moron, I was looking at some pillars.  Oooh, they have orbs on top of them.  I'll just head over and--Are you kidding me?! He's taking my orbs!! And not even gracefully, since he's still hopping around like an idiot.  This was a graceful world before you showed up, jerk.
Well, you wander in the desert for generations and your mind starts to go.  Makes sense to me!  Besides, maybe you were actually in HIS game, those were his orbs and he wanted to make sure you didnít take them first!

But if you go from a pure story perspective, the purpose of the Journey is
Spoiler for Hiden:
that each person who reaches the end is sent back to instruct, lead and teach those who come after.  The reward for collecting all the bits is the white robe which is that of your peopleís transcended teachers.

I just found it strange that you disliked one of the defining features of a game that would be pretty desolate without it.  But ultimately, enjoy the game however you like!  And let me know when the Dark Souls easy mode and quick save patches come out.  icon_wink

Heck, even the Souls games with their always online design allow you to choose if you want other players to be a thing in your game. Why not Journey?
I would say because the *multiplayer* was taking the place of what could have been AI creatures doing the same thing.  You were supposed to encounter other beings making the same journey you were.  Share in the strife and the wonder. They were part of the overall experience and to take it away was to make it less meaningful.

If you are to compare it to the Souls games, I would say a better comparison would be to let you keep your souls when you die or let you quick save.  It would have made the game more interesting to me but as everyone else asserts, it would defeat the purpose of the game.

I hope it can be played solo this time around, because the forced multiplayer really ruined the experience for me the first (and only) time I played it. Still, even if it can't be played solo, I can still pull out my network cable if necessary.


The multiplayer was one of the most interesting aspects of the game.  I remember the first time I was separated from my *friend* I was actually pretty sad and spent a good five minutes trying to find him again.

Yeah I agree. I really donít want open world.  Dishonored worked so well because the level design was great, with multiple branching paths to get through a level.  I canít imagine that working in an open world unless everything was super simplified.  Thief 3 tried that with stealth gameplay and it just resulted in wasted time in a boring hub world between more interesting content.
171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1] Dishonored 2 on: June 15, 2015, 04:00:53 AM
Super excited for this.  Not sure how I feel about having Corvo still around though.  I though the first game wrapped up his storyline nicely, would have preferred if it was just Emily or an entirely new character within the world.

Half-Life 3
While I loved the original Half-Life, I was never captivated by H2.  I donít really get the obsession with H3, story based FPS are dime a dozen these days and many have far more interesting characters.  At this point, they would really need to innovate the genre to get me to have any interest.     
173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 Games you care about on: June 10, 2015, 06:48:03 PM
Really hopeful that Dishonored 2 will be announced. 
I would be bouncing off the walls if Dawn of War III were to be announced.

Beyond those, AAA titles donít excite me very much anymore.  They come out, sometimes I play them, usually I prefer unique indies with little fanfareÖ
174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Does Fallout New Vegas Build Upon Fallout 3? on: June 09, 2015, 06:01:09 PM
Fallout 3 kind of made up its own mythology separate from the original Fallout games.  New Vegas is more faithful to the original Fallouts, has a better story and all around better writing and quest. 

Some people claim that Fallout 3 has more interesting locals to explore but I thought they felt more like set pieces than a lived in world. 

If you really love the Elderscrolls games you might prefer F3, but in all other cases I would say New Vegas is a MUCH better game.

177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: May 24, 2015, 12:18:05 AM
I played in the test-fire today.  It's definitely fun but I'm terrible at aiming with a controller and I worry that it will get old fast.  Those two things are enough to keep me away on launch day.  That said, unless reviews pan the single-player component I will definitely be checking it out further down the road though.

Sigh, I feel like an ingrate for saying this, but it's getting to the point where I feel like I should just avoid buying new games at release and just wait on the enhanced editions that will inevitable come out a year later.
Original Sin was pretty good when it came out, and it was certainly the best Co-op RPG experience Iíve ever played on PC.  If they are not exaggerating, and this really does feel like a whole new story, then itís like getting two great games for the price of one.

Im interested, it looks like a novel concept. However, when I saw this was going to be 59.99 I am out. To me, it looks like a 19.99 or even 29.99 game. I wont put the hours in to warrant the cost.
If Iím not mistaken, it was originally going to be bargain priced but then Nintendo took it on to create an entire single player campaign for it.
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: May 12, 2015, 04:33:27 AM
I tried downloading this tonight and was disappointed that it was no longer available.  Looking forward to some real reviews once we get closer to release.  Most of the early buzz has been positive.
182  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Dead of Winter on: May 07, 2015, 03:15:23 PM
I recommend as well and I donít normally like co-op games.  The second time I played this I ended up as the traitor with a goal to have 5 food cards in my hand at the end of the game.  I did everything I could to help the colony normally except not playing my smallest food items and no one ever expected they had a traitor in the midst.  By the end of the game everyone was starving and morale dropped to zero.

After everyone else had consoled each other over the loss and how bad their luck had been to find no food, I silently flipped over all the cards in my hand and laid them face up in front of me in order;  six food total.  One by one they turned to stare at my cards with mouths agape and almost in chorus shouted out, ďyou asshole!Ē Then I flipped over the traitor card and smiled.

After that, I flipped to the back of the rule book to read the epilogue text that told the story of how my character had slowly gotten fatter and fatter in the last couple months while everyone else had gotten sickly thin.  He liked to stand naked in the mirror, admire his physique and then rub his horde of food all over his body.  

It was glorious.  I had a bag of dice thrown at me.   icon_biggrin

I've never understood those types of design choices, where the developer throws a huge difficulty spike somewhere in the game that is totally unexpected in comparison to the rest of the gameplay. It's understandable in a game like Dark Souls to have these frustrations, as the core gameplay is built around it.

Actually, Ori is very difficult through and through.    There is a reason why most people in this thread report deaths well into the multiple hundreds.  The chase levels are just a different kind of difficult since the rest of the game lets you save at any point.

Comparatively, I would say I died a lot more(per minute spent) in the gravity reversing world than any of the chase sequences and the lava finale was very difficult as well, filled with areas where you could not touch the ground for more than a couple seconds without burning to death.

It's pretty much impossible to win these sequences on your first few tries.
I think I had better luck with those than most people because I played Rayman Legends extensively.  They are very reminiscent of the chase levels from that.  I finished most of Oriís on my 2nd or 3rd attempts.  That last chase level is ridiculous though.

Demon Souls ~ 30 minutes.

Started it up, combat seemed alright.  Ghost and message system cool enough.  Got carried away when fighting a big dude on a bridge.


ďOh well, my fault.Ē

Game starts me back a mile away.  Get about half way back to bridge dude when enemies crowd me and wonky physics push me into a hole.


Games starts me back at beginning.  Hmm, this game could use a few more check points, oh well, onward to glory!


Man this starting area is getting pretty old; at least they could let the enemies stay dead so I wouldnít have to waste so much time getting back, maybe there is something Iím miss-


ďScrew you skeletons!  I donít have time for your crap!ď

Runs past all initial enemies, gets turned around inside a multi-level structure, look behind me.

ďOH MY GOD! Every enemy from the start of the level is chasing me!Ē

189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Who else sucks in online games? on: April 20, 2015, 02:54:41 PM
Enjoyment of multiplayer games has a lot to do with the people you are playing with.  I would go so far as to say, if youíre not playing with friends over voice chat, youíre doing it wrong.   With a group of friends talking live, you can generally be effective enough, by working together, that it doesnít matter if you donít individually have the best skills in the world.

Beyond that, most multiplayer games have adopted class systems at this point.  That means, if you donít have the reflexes to play a front line fighter, donít, there are plenty of other ways to support your team and do well.  Choose a sniper class and hide on top of a building somewhere.  Or choose a medic, or some sort of engineer class.  Maybe you are good driver.  Regardless of your skills, I bet there is a class you could play.

Now MOBAs are the exception to this.  You MIGHT be able to play something like Heroes of the Storm, since itís pretty casual, but in general, if you donít have a thick skin, I would stay far far away from MOBAs.  The majority of them have incredibly toxic player basses that will attack you at the smallest provocation.

I cant comment on the New 3DS, but with the original, you could almost double the battery life if you played with 3D and wireless turned off.

You Tubers (the big ones anyways) should get together and form some kind of association / union which would give them a bit more force to protect themselves. You get a few people boycotting and that's not going to stop anyone. But a united group of the top 500 let's players? That might give them pause.
That kind of already exists.  Polaris, (which I believe AJ is a member of) provides some blanket protection in cases where streamers get hit with take down notices.  The problem is that it prevents them from losing their channels; it canít do anything to combat the practices that put them in danger in the first place.

There are some other large groups as well but Polaris is one of the most powerful since it is technically owned by Disney.

Fairly certain Binding of Isaac would run on a potato, so while they will release some games only on N3DS, I doubt that will be one of them.
