More discussions over at OO. Me, I'm still processing. And there's this: What we know so far about Season 2.

Cease all motor functions! Cease all... well, shit.

Watched these on Crunchyroll but now wondering what my options are for Kingsglaive - iTunes only? Don't want to buy the darn thing, just stream it. For free if possible.  paranoid

So... I played the "demo" for this the other day and was thoroughly turned off and quit without getting to the end of it. Is this "nightmare having / Mario collecting / squeaky hammer bonking" sequence actually in the game?  disgust

Completed the story, now wondering how OCD to get on collectables and trophies and the DLC. Also wondering... there is a stinger after the credits which I let run while I was distracted by life. Now I'm wondering if I had hit 'back' when they started, would it have still shown it to me? Anyone who has finished know?

I'd be curious to hear if authors get anything from books they discount to $0 on Amazon?  Or is it purely trying to get people into a series and convert them into fans to buy more?  (which is also a great plan, just curious)

Purely the latter. Last time we talked he'd had almost 6000 takers on the first book. A small number of sales so far that will just cover the cost he put into advertising them, but hey... gotta start somewhere.  icon_wink

When not spending his days as an Oracle DBA, he is spending his other waking hours working on his books. We've talked over the years about the process, his inspirations, trials and tribulations as well as the different genres he is writing for. Well, the leading edge of his book series (yes, plural) has been released and I'm really enjoying them. Thought some here might as well if you are into military sci-fi with a bit of cyberpunk and transhumanism mixed in, set in what seems to me to be a disturbingly possible and not all that far off dystopian future. I went straight through the first two and am about halfway into the third. I know there's more coming as well as an urban fantasy set or two at the very least. These have been a labor of love for him for quite some time.

Specifically, the first series is the "Rimes Trilogy" and his Amazon author's page is here. The first one is free and he just put together a "boxed set" for those who enjoy the first and want to pick up the next two for a lower price. Pretty sure all other formats are out there as well, i.e. for the Nook or iBook fans.

Thanks for checking them out!   thumbsup

Rise, Lady Raider of Tombs, Rise. Dawned on me my 53% completion percentage didn't mean halfway done with the story, but how much of all the goodies out there I've collected. Forgot how long you can run around in areas after the main story ends cleaning up all of the 'Mission Challenges' and such. This looks to be be the first game I actually complete this year, something pretty unusual for me. Funny too because the first reboot was one of the only other ones on that short list.

I'm back in it as well on the PS4 after giving my initial go at it on the PC. Not quite as speedy as Gratch but a little over 50% complete as of last night and going strong. Finally got the dang rebreather (still waiting on 'broadhead climbing arrows' it would seem), have the Atlas and had some fun with the Deathless Ones and am now puzzling out one of the challenge tombs that stumped me very late last night. Can't wait to get back to it.  thumbsup

Still playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PS4 and am finally back to the 43% completion point where I eventually quit on the PC, trying to sneak back through the occupied village in the Geothermal Valley.  ninja

Oh, and perhaps some Tyranny.

Well pcgamer sure didn't like it.  I may have time to return it but am hoping they are just being unfairly critical.

There was a lot of negative press about Watch Dogs and Homefront Revolution, both of which I really liked. I'm really beginning to feel that gaming "journalists" shouldn't be reviewers if they can't make a better effort to keep their own subjective interpretation of what the game should have been like from what it actually is.

A long, long, long time ago (the seventies) there used to be a board game review publication (actually a sheet printed both sides, sometimes a bit bigger) called Richard Berg's Review of Games. Richard would occasionally include an article for potential reviewers on how to review a game. He stressed that their review shouldn't be about how the reviewer thought the game should have been designed, instead they should review the game as to whether the released game seemed to meet the goals the designer was seeking to accomplish.

I pretty much now rely on this forum and the one over at Octopus Overlords for a more informed, intelligent set of impressions of a game.

Right there with you, JZ... dang, it's been a long-ass time since my days with Richard and his Review of Games. Never mind the crap-ton of games he designed.  thumbsup

Pre-ordered Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration on the PS4, so that.

Perhaps The Deep Paths: Labyrinth of Andokost.

Finally, I pulled the trigger and purchased a Xbox-one. I was pleasantly surprised at how small they've managed to make it. Even the power bar is built in, nice.

Now.  icon_wink

Does anyone have a recommendation on a wheel that works with this on an XB1? Not even sure if any wheel that works on the console will work with this game but assuming that's true. And any info I find online seems to be specific to Forza 6. Hoping someone here is... experienced.  icon_biggrin

I gave up on wheels because it seems none of them have the same type of forcefeedback as the previous gen that I was used to

Thanks guys. I did end up getting a Logitech G920 (on sale so 'only' $300) but will be returning it today. The cables are a bit short and I don't have a great place for it but did get it all hooked up and drove for a bit. However, in spite of being a very nice wheel, it wasn't enough of an improvement for me to justify the setup hassle and price tag. Went back to the controller and after futzing with the deadzone settings, it worked well enough to keep me racing until 2 something in the AM.  icon_smile

TiLT, this one worked just fine with the menus and such as it has a full set of buttons and a d-pad on it and the map 'snaps' to key points using the d-pad. You also get bonus points for every Forza game you've ever played and your 'Drivatar' is out there for the world to hunt down, it would seem. Bit of a PITA but did eventually beat you and your damn Ferrari in my Lamborghini Centenario and you were the first 'pro' I signed to my fledgling festival.  icon_cool
