Steam trading cards go live Wednesday.  A lot of people predict that will be the start of the summer sale.

Rogue Legacy looks fun and might pick it up.

For those of you not playing on Hard, how difficult are you finding it?  Are we talking controller-throwing frustration, or something more manageable.  If a non twitch gamer wanted to enjoy the story, characters, and atmosphere, is it doable?  TIA


Let me save you the trouble.  You won't like it Tongue  
Gratch is the one who hates everything, right?  icon_razz

Seriously though, playing on normal I think I only died maybe 10-15 times in the whole game, most of which were at the end of the game and the rest were during the early Clicker sections before I figured out how to easily bypass them. If you drop it all the way down to easy you get Shiv defense by default, which means you canít be one shot by zombies unless you donít have a Shiv.

For what itís worth, Iím not a 3rd person action fan either and I loved the game.

Just finished the game.  Generally speaking, Iím not much of a console gamer.  Iím also not a fan of most third person games.  All that said, this is by far my favorite game of the year and probably my favorite game of this console generation.

My total play time was 12 hour 49 minutes on normal.  I also had a whopping 177 melee kills.

Interesting, looks like people who use WASD camera controls for RTS games are more common than I'd thought.
See! I'm not alone!

The lack of WASD camera controls actually have been a problem for me.  I'm much less sluggish to maneuver troops than I was in DoWII.

Can someone please answer my question from last page Tongue  How do you see  your percentage?  I'm in the stats page and all it shows is time played.

After you save, choose the load game option.  Your percentage should be shown when you select a file.  You don't need to actually load the file.

Hmm, thatís actually a bit disappointing for me.  Iíll probably wait and see if it goes on sale at some point.  Nintendo has been pretty good about putting out sales with games on the WiiU.

Quote from: McNutt on June 19, 2013, 09:34:45 PM

That extra scene does make more sense as to why the engineer gets angry.  I don't think it justifies getting angry enough to kill everybody.  That still makes him seem like a psychopath.  Plus I still have issues with their decision to wipe out Earth.  Why?  How do they know what the people of Earth have become?  Wasn't that engineer in suspended animation for a really long time?  For some reason I was thinking that those ships had been like that for hundreds or thousands of years. 

Still, nothing about that script made sense.  The engineers created life on our planet and possibly other planets.  They leave clues for us to go to this planet and find them and when we do it's actually just their biohazard stockpile planet where they were planning our doom.  Huh?
I looked at it like this; humanity was little more than a curiosity.  Letís say you had an ant farm then, and one day the ants became advanced enough to talk face to face with you.  Instead of revering you the ants said that they were your equal in every way.  Would you welcome the ants with welcome arms or would you be insulted?  And to that end, how guilty would you feel for killing a few ants?

Or you can look at it this way.  You created life.   Knowing that it would evolve you wanted to create a failsafe in case it evolved too much.  If the life stayed on its planet then fine, you could study it from afar as a science experiment.  However, if the life became advanced enough to seek you out then that meant that one day it might pose a threat to you.  In that case, isnít it better to setup a trap to wipe them out before they became powerful enough to put you in danger?

For anyone who found Prometheus lacking, track down the cut scenes on Youtube.  In my opinion they vastly improved the movie and I have no idea why they were cut. 

Does she not run in a straight line?  Does the scientist not try to get all cuddly with the hideous monster?  Do the connections to Alien suddenly exist?
No, characters still do dumb things but in a couple places you learn WHY they do dumb things.  There is generally more character development and a better understanding of peopleís motivations. 

I mentioned this is the old Prometheus thread but this is one example that would have been MUCH better with the cut content.
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the theatrical cut the Space Jockey/ Engineer wakes up and for no reason starts killing people.

In the deleted scene he actually has a brief conversation with the people in the room.  The Engineer is actually fairly calm until the Old Dude starts yelling that humans are their equals and that they are both like gods; at which point the engineer becomes offended and then attacks the people in the room.

For me this makes it perfectly clear as to why the Engineers would choose to exterminate the human race after their creation and added extra meaning to the movie.

I've never played an Animal Crossing game before, at any point do we get a backpack or any-form or extended carry space?  I find it a bit tedious to have return and sell things as often as I do, especially now that my equipment takes up a fair amount of my inventory space.

In other news, I'm up to 10 hours 35 minutes playtime, and the saved game tells me I'm only at 56% completion. This is a long game.
Wow, I'm at 5 hours 20 minutes and 46% complete.  The next 10% must be rough!   icon_biggrin

I also have 38 collectibles.  Do these do anything?  I noticed a special bit of dialogue on a comic book but that has been it so far.

2) Get the nookling place upgraded (I never want to sell there because you don't get as much money, but forcing myself to do so now)


Strangely, I think that is currently happening in my town. There is a big tent thing up next door to it.   I've only purchased three items there and I think only sold there twice.

Now that Iím a bit further in the game some of the sheen has worn off for me.  I loved the first hour of the game but once it threw me into a Clicker heavy area I became very annoyed.  In a game like this I want to explore and collect everything but I feel that the game punishes you for that with the fact that you can be killed instantly, thus making you have to re-collect everything since it saves only at the start of an area.  Combine this with a stealth focus and itís just too tedious for me to play like that.

My enjoyment went back up though once I discovered that you really donít have to be that careful.  Now I save all my equipment for Molotovs, nail bombs, carry a good melee weapon and take Clickers head on.  It helps that my game apparently bugged out in my favor and I got the shiv self defense upgrade for free.  I had been saving all my pills (havenít spent any yet) and once I picked up an upgraded shiv recipe I found that I now had the ability.  Convenience!

Also, at least on normal, if you hit a Clicker with a bottle and you can do a one shot kill on them with a melee weapon if you hurry.  Strangely, other Clickers donít seem to hear the bottle break.

826  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas? on: June 16, 2013, 02:30:07 AM
Vegas will always get my vote as the better game but since you are replaying that goes double.  Vegas has multiple endings as well as location specific endings for every town you visit; which means every play through can be different based on your actions.  F3 on the other hand will always end in the same way.

828  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing on: June 15, 2013, 06:02:00 PM
Iím guessing itís more of an expand-alone expansion pack.  Given that itís a $15 game Iím ok with that.  I do wish they would fix multiplayer first though since Iím holding out for that.

Iíve gotta say, this is one of the first console games in a long time to hold my interest. 

Iím a little surprised by the reports that itís a long game though.  The in game percentage tracker says Iím at 15% after only about an hour.  That seems to imply only about 7 hours. 
832  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thief 4? on: June 13, 2013, 11:37:28 PM
Dishonored was very much a spiritual successor to the original Thief games, perhaps even more so than Thief3 was.  I think there is still a chance this could turn out ďalrightĒ as a stand-alone title but trying to link it to the Thief brand is doing it a disservice. 

Fans of the originals donít want it because of the changes and everyone else isnít going to care either way.
833  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thief 4? on: June 13, 2013, 07:20:02 PM
My take away from the video: A lot of people are complaining about the combat being a focus, which is valid if it really is a focus but I was more bothered by the type of combat.  My problem is that the combat looks WORSE than what was in Thief 1 & 2.  The originals had a fun sword fighting system where you could change the angle of your sword to counter attacks and parry (this was removed in Thief 3).  The new system looks like simple block and counter attacks with horrible quick timey type events (focus) added on.

Not sure.  There was some bad press going around after it happened.  I believe there were 3-4 reviews in the 70ís range.  It may have been a direct publisher action.  Some game companies basically say, ďYou can review our game in advance as long as you donít give it a rating below XĒ.  Those reviewers may have broken that agreement.

Is Polygon not on Metacritic, they gave it a 7.5
Metacritic removed all the negative reviews for the game. Or rather, all the mediocre reviews, none were really negative.

If youíre only going to get one get a PS4.  I like my WiiU a lot but it is definitely a secondary system.  There just arenít enough games in the library right now to support it.  Microsoft has made almost every mistake imaginable with the Xbox One.  Unless you really love the idea of playing Halo or Gears of War I would stay far far away.
