I might download New Super Luigi U.  If I recall correctly itís only $15 if you already own New Super Mario Bros U.

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.

846  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.

My museum is filling out nicely.  The Aquarium in particular has some pretty cool things in it like piranhas and squid. 

The rock thing is news to me though, what do you hit them with?
848  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. 
852  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.
853  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.

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.

"It's really impressive to have a roster of 50 characters, but how many of those characters am I really going to play?" the producer said. "And I have to buy a $60 game in order to play those one or two characters I want to play."

That is just about one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Really Microsoft? You think you know what's best for gamers? Thanks for looking out for us. The world is a better place because of you. How's that XBox None DRM policy working out for ya?

There have been rumors circulating that that Nintendo will announce a price drop to coincide with an ambassador program similar to what the 3DS had, basically a bunch of ďfreeĒ games for early adopters.  
864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2013 on: June 11, 2013, 05:32:37 PM
A couple more Nintendo trailers:

Super Mario 3D World ĖWiiU Ė Unremarkable but looks fun.

Rayman Legends E3 CGI trailer Ė WiiU Ė Now with jiggle physics!
Or if you prefer actual gameplay to exaggerated Viking womenÖ - Iíve played Rayman Legends quite a lot so far and I have to say, between what Iíve already played and the trailer, they are leagues ahead of the platformers that Nintendo themselves make.

The Wonderful 101 Ė WiiU Ė If Freedom Force and Pikmin had a baby who went insane.

X Ė WiiU Ė Monolith Soft giant mech action RPG thingy.

Yoshi's New Island Ė 3DS- Love the painted style.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Ė 3DS Ė I hope itís better than Paper Mario Super Star.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Ė 3DS Ė Awesome.

Other M, to me, killed the Metroid series for a while.

It's the only Metroid game I haven't played. From what I read, it didn't seem like a Metroid game I wanted to play and neither of my kids were interested in it either.
The gameplay is Other M was actually fine.  The problem was they shoehorned in a train wreck of a story that took center stage and gave Sammus a daddy complex and more or less destroyed any credibility she had as a bounty hunter.

They released Donkey Kong Country Returns to the 3DS, which was just a port of the original Wii version with the motion controls removed.  This is supposed to be a whole new title.

So, what did you think of the Nintendo conference, as our resident WiiU ownder L9?
MehÖ  To be fair most of those games do interest me and I will probably buy them but nothing really stood out with any WOW factor. 

The biggest problem I see is none of those games (aside from Party U :sigh:) will make use of the WiiU pad in any meaningful way, which makes people ask why itís there in the first place.  The best thing you can say is that you wonít have to worry about motion controls. 

Itís unfortunate because the pad really does allow for innovation in gaming.  ZombiU showed this very well.  Hell, even Rayman Legends does a fair job of this.  Nintendo really should have pushed for a new Metroid or a Zelda to show off what the system can do that is unique.

Super Mario 3D World Ė December 13th - The new Wii U 3D Mario will feature four-player co-op, with players playing as Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach. The new cat suit will allow Mario and his friends to transform into a cat, gaining the ability to climb up walls and scratch enemies with claws.

Bayonetta 2 -2014- New gameplay trailer.  I have no idea what is going on but itís pretty and could be fun.

Mario Kart 8 - 2014 Ė Video.  Itís HD Mario Kart.  

Super Smash Bros. Ė Unknown Ė New characters so far include a villager from Animal Crossing and Megaman.  Cross play with 3DS is possible.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze ĖFall - A brand new side-scrolling adventure for the Wii U, starring Donkey Kong and the return of Dixie Kong.

Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Ė October Ė HD Windwaker.

Wii Party U Ė Announced -

might want to drop the 3 from the title.  Think Bioware trying to get away from DA:O (which most fans adore) and DA2 which is generally dislike depending on the person
Judging by the trailer this might be more of a direct sequel to the original than DA2 was.

I just finished the game and got my epilogue.  It generates based on your actions in the game.  No real spoilers but very funny.  The game is short (3ish hours) but oh so enjoyable.  Iím tempted to try again and go completely nonlethal.  All of my kills came from the very last mission when they ramped the difficulty way up.

Spoiler-ed as well in case you don't want to view it online or are scared of the nonexistent spoilers.

Spoiler for Hiden:
A case of crossed wires
5 dead. 9 injured. 20 jobs. $13,000. I've had better weeks.
They don't let me name names on this blog, but the person behind the hit I was investigating is dead now.
He played a dangerous game: insulting my hat.
The trigger man's dead. That would have felt good if I hadn't just taken a seven story body slam.
I don't know.
I guess I picked the least shitty of two incredibly shitty sides.
Maybe that doesn't matter. Maybe all that matters is that I now have the ability to kick down doors.
Either way, I think I need 10ccs of ketamine and a Columbo marathon.

Getting hung up on review scores amuses me since they have been inflated to the point of meaninglessness.  By all rights a 5 should be average and anything higher than that should be worth a look but few critics use that scale.  Polygon seems to be one of the few reviewers to actually use the whole spectrum.  On their own scale, ďSevens are good games that may even have some great partsĒ. 

I suppose it mimics real life though; if you ask someone to rate their attractiveness they will say, ďI think Iím about average, you know, a 7 or an 8Ē.  icon_lol

Picked it up and while I think I will like it, it is unplayable at the moment... about 15-25 seconds in, the game gets EXTREMELY slow.. to the point where it is unplayable... everything is at a crawl... got through 2 missions, then just had to stop...
Definitely not my specs...
Also, don't see a way to change resolution or fullscreen/windowed mode, once you select one..

From the main menu choose ďChange Res (if things look too small)Ē.

Canít comment on the performance.  Iím 5-6 missions in and no problems yet.
877  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gunpoint on: June 03, 2013, 10:45:18 PM
The developer posted this today so if you're thinking of picking it up consider where you buy it from.

"Because people are wonderful, we've had far more sales from this site than on Steam, because I mentioned we get a bigger cut that way. This is fantastic and was definitely the right thing to do for pre-orders.

The downside is, we look a bit limp on Steam. Our highest chart position was #38, just behind "Crusader Kings II: Norse Portraits DLC". This means people who don't already know about Gunpoint are unlikely to see it there, and it might hurt our chances of Valve promoting it - apparently they go largely on what's already selling well.

So today, the best way you can support Gunpoint is to buy it on Steam. If we can do well there, it could be a huge help."

Hmm, no interest here.  Disappointing.

I finished up the story late last night.  Without giving anything away I will say the ending is satisfying but donít go in expecting a Disney ending.  The game is creepy and mildly unsettling from beginning to end.
A warning for anyone who picks up the game; if you reach the last 124 orb door donít activate it unless you are ready to finish the game.   Once you activate it there is no going back.  I didnít realize I was at the end of the game and missed a sizeable portion of the ship as a result.

My total playtime was 7 hours.  Given the amount of stuff I missed, I think you could add at least an hour or two to that if you do everything.
