Awesome, thanks for posting all that. Need to check out your PS as while I don't have any crashes, what I do have are odd background 'machine' noises / static that I hear with the headphones on when there's no other sound. Nvidia and Realtek here.

that's just electrical interference, isn't it? happens because the audio hardware isn't shielded/is too close to the computer's internals.

Sure, probably but I don't see any harm in attempting... The Fix.  icon_cool

PS: You can also check for resource conflicts with your other audio controller(s)... I read on yet another thread that the real problem is nvidia vs realtek, which is what most peoples on-motherboard sound solution ends up being... they're very common. This might or might not be causing issues. It probably wouldnt crash, since they made the audio drivers not part of the system process for windows somewhat recently... (vista? win7?) but it might show up as audio stuttering, crackling, static, etc.

And yet the top of the leaderboard is filled with what looked like (from what I recall) people with zero deaths and 100% completion.  icon_confused

That's got to be hacked like every other leaderboard. I'd like to see a video of someone doing a zero death run. There's so many easy ways to die. I'm currently at 55% and 555 deaths.

Figured as much. Hacked or exploited in some fashion, which basically makes all leaderboards fairly useless.  finger

Well, except ranks against friends I suppose. As long as they're not cheaters. Is there one for most deaths? icon_wink

Thanks, guys, will keep these in mind.  icon_smile While I'd like to try some sort of clip-on grips, the few I've read about so far seem to get decidedly mixed reviews (complaints about making triggers tougher to activate, or not clipping on securely etc.).

I'd like to get some sort of simple storage protection case. I don't think I need a screen protector, but would like a little case to put it in when not in use. So I'm examining some modest options for that. I guess I could see if it fits in my old PSP case.

I have these and while I don't use them all that much, they do help with control and grip. 

Have those as well, recommended.

[sigh] OK, time to confess that I apparently SUCK at killing Lycans - as in the first damn one at the end of Chapter 1. What's the "trick" here? OK, great, I can dodge when the red X shows up but so what - how in the hell do I kill it? Can't seem to shoot it, the R1 secondary weapon on the rifle doesn't seem to phase it and any time we grapple, my mad button mashing still ends up with me dead.  mad

So what works?

Just shoot them a few times, then run up to them and do the context-sensitive killing blow. You should get a tutorial message about this the first time you have to do it. It's not hard at all, honestly.

I wouldn't think so, which is why I was getting pissed off about being 'stuck'. I've yet to see any tutorial message about a 'killing blow', I'll see if I can get it to trigger tonight.

I still don't understand what htoL#NiQ is, or how you're supposed to pronounce it.

It's apparently the 'stylized' version of Hotaru no Nikki. Sounds interesting and a little... dark.

I can go check Youtube or something but thought I'd ask here as well. I missed the dates between the prologue and the first chapter, i.e. we start off in the 'future' and then go back to tell how we got there I assume... does anyone recall the dates?

OK, guess I didn't miss the first one as there isn't a first one. All we know is Chapter 1 starts off on October 12th, 1886. Ah well.

Only niggle I have so far is I do wish they would pause the action when they first introduce a gameplay mechanic, give me time to read the (small) text and then acknowledge I'm ready before moving on, this rather than killing me for missing it.   icon_neutral

For some reason The Order is in my day one category.

I kickstarted Hand of Fate, so have been playing (and enjoying) it on Steam in early access. They had their Gone Gold announcement at the first of this month, looking forward to seeing it hit that milestone.  thumbsup
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Clarify something for me concerning the X360 and Live Gold on: February 07, 2015, 04:22:40 AM
I'm not sure but if you go here and scroll down to where it says "Multiplayer for everyone in your household" it says this:

"With Home Gold, on Xbox One, a single Gold membership provides multiplayer for everyone in your home.*"

And if you scroll down to where they keep the asterisks, you'll see a chart that compares the 360 to the XB1 and that Home Gold thing doesn't exist on the 360. So thinking your answer is yes.

If I were to guess, it probably means dialog bubbles stay on the screen for a longer time.

Sounds reasonable, thanks. I'd searched their forums and couldn't find any mention of it.

Can someone comment on the controls? If anything, the negative reviews are all about the controls.

All I saw was great reviews. The controls are perfect for a game like this. This is seriously one of the best platformers I've played in a long time. Charming as all hell, and I like the mustache!

They're there in the actual iTunes store... 3 stars "Beautiful agony", 4 stars "Good game but limited by poor controls", 3 stars "Controls are awful" etc etc. All agree it's gorgeous, however, and the vast majority are five stars. So, how do the controls work? That's mostly what I was wondering. I could go rustle up a review or two but thought I'd ask here those who've played it. TIA.

Interesting... will have to see how it fares.  Speaking of 'driving in the rain simulators', saw this come up after the new trailer: DriveClub vs Project CARS Build 887 - Rain Weather Comparison and I have to say that (IMHO) DriveClub 'wins' that aspect of the simulation. Be curious to see how they compare when CARS officially launches.

I also backed at a level that gets me the first expansion and several other goodies, those they won't start working on until March from what I recall. So many expansions coming, sheesh.
