I enjoy 'open world' games but shy away from the ones that float over into 'sandbox' territory.

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

Not really sure about it being 'half baked', the only issue I've been seeing on the console version is the load times. They're not as bad when there's something on the screen but the initial ones are a big black screen with a small spinner at the bottom. I think as long as you've seen the gameplay and know what you are getting into, it's fine. Even if it does call everything a 'dungeon'. Hey, we need to head that-a-way to reboot Pylon 512. Ding, you've discovered a new dungeon! icon_wink

Nowhere near the end game so no clue what is missing / cut.

Finally played the demo this weekend. Wow. I can't wait. The only question now is which version and which format. ultimate to play early and get all the things? Digital to be playable on the PC as well? I'm having a hard time spending $100 and having no trade-in option vs $48 on amazon and being able to trade in for $20 when I am done with it.

Either way I will definitely be playing.

Well if you are getting it from Amazon anyway, you can get the Ultimate Edition in disc form for only $80. 

Did you mean the 'Deluxe' edition? That's the one that shows up as $80, the Ultimate edition is $100.

I think he meant with Prime.  It's $80 for the physical Ultimate Edition with Prime.

Okay, thanks. I was looking for mention of the Prime discount but didn't see it last night, even put it in my cart without it showing up. You have to actually start the checkout process for it to show the $20 coming off. So, save $20 and not have the option of PC play or go the full $100 for the digital version?  Hmmmm....

Check out the Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series noted here, they're not just on iOS and are on sale for $.99 at the moment.
13  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS] Sorcery! on: September 16, 2016, 12:36:12 PM
Just as an FYI. Delayed one week, all others on sale.

Quote
We're hugely sorry to announce this, but Sorcery! 4's launch date has had to change. The epic finale to the series will now be going live on Steam, iOS and Android on September 22nd - one week later than originally planned.

After such a long journey - four games over four years, and nearly one and a half million words of content - we want to be sure the release is as good as it can be.

Once again, we hope you'll forgive us the delay. To help soften the blow, we've put the first three Sorcery! games on sale on the App Store for their cheapest price ever - just $1 each. So if you're missing any installments, now's the time to pick them up.

Wait, I thought you could only do the Play Anywhere thing with digital titles?  

I own the digital version, yes.

Oh, when you said it "showed up today" I assumed you meant the disc showed up in the mail.

Sorry, just meant it was released. And somewhat that when I cranked up the XB1 it said it was ready for me to play. However that turned out to be not the case. Any tile that said "Play" on it would launch the title screen, sit for a moment and then open up the store page. Which said you own it, so "Play". Lather, rinse, repeat. Finally had to check where updates live and manually launch the 'update' that actually download the full game. Fun. Then wait while it loaded for reals... and wait... black screen, spinning thing... wait... icon_confused

Whatever pre-order stub it downloaded seemed to confuse the crap out of it. But we good now.

Figured I might as well start an official topic for this since it showed up today and I wanted to move the discussion out of the 'what are you buying' thread. I pre-ordered this on the Xbox 1 and the first thing I noticed were the dang wait times for loads. Other than that not seeing any issues so far but it is early on. Downloading it now on my Windows 10 machine, since I can 'Play Anywhere' maybe I'll try the first boss battle there. I'm hoping the graphics will be a wee bit more better there as the XB1 version could use a little anti-alias love or something.

Edited to add - yup, very much more nicer.  thumbsup

It is quite reasonable on Steam (I think $20) which seems fair even though it is quite an old game.

Yup, $20 for the base game or you can get a bundle with all the DLC for $40. And what that bundle gets you is the 'Special Edition' that is coming out at the end of October for free.  nod

Think I'll just stick with the base game.

And the final part, Part 4: The Crown of Kings, launches Sept 15th.

The trailer is here and some of the new features:

  • Hand-drawn 3D buildings for you to explore, inside and out.
  • Disguises will let you blend in with the people of Mampang - but be warned, they might not like who you're pretending to be...
  • New artwork from series regulars Mike Schley (maps), Eddie Sharam (monsters) and John Blanche (original art), and a new orchestral theme from composer Laurence Chapman.
  • Multiple endings, multiple goals - can you save Analand? Become the next Archmage? Find love? Die in peace - or live a cursed life?

The official story I heard was that after working all of this out and getting everything agreed to sans parachute, "they" wanted to force him to wear one after he got on the plane. His worry with the canister it apparently sits in was that it would cause him harm when he hit the net. They... negotiated... and he left the plane without it.

Moving files/docs/pics/etc.. are simple to move.
Keep in mind though, that you can't move any programs and these need to be reinstalled from scratch.

I know in the past I've used utilities to move installed programs to new locations, ones that also update the registry entries at the same time so you don't have to reinstall. However, it's been a hellofa long time ago... do they not still exist?

Patched. One addition - an "easier easy mode" if you want to dial back the combat.

Spoiler for Hiden:
This patch contains a number of bug fixes and commonly asked for gameplay improvements. Thanks for all of your comments and feedback - we have been listening carefully!

Here's the full patch notes:

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where you could be blocked in the "Under Threat" main quest.
  • Fixed an item duplication exploit
  • Fixed a bug preventing to complete the tutorial if you changed the binding before starting it
  • Fixed a bug where the wrong button was shown during the tutorial with a PS4 controller on PC
  • Fixed animation bugs on the character
  • Fixed two bugs preventing to complete side quests "Crowd of beggar" and "Extortion under threat" after fleeing from Ophir
  • Minor bug fixes
  • Stability improvements
  • Minor UI improvements

Gameplay:

  • Implementation of a key that toggles walking or running, bound on "Caps Lock" by default
  • Rework on the loot/drain binding system in keyboard/mouse controls: Loot will now always be bound on "interaction 1" (E) and drain on "interaction 2" (Q)
  • 'Easier' Easy Mode - Following player feedback, we've reworked Easy difficulty to be more accessible. This is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the story without investing too much time into combat.

Any links to share? The official site has no text descriptions, just a trailer and some gifs so not quite sure what it is all about.

Apparently, there's a lot to spoil, so everyone is being very dodgy about what to say.

Once I saw my third 9/10 yesterday morning, I pre-ordered (it's actually out today).

I think that was System Shock 2; the first one didn't have any weapon degradation, IIRC.

Yup, that was 2 and eventually patched so you could tone it down.

Thanks. Silly question perhaps in this day and age but now I'm wondering if there is anything in the way of a manual or guide for the game? My character is fully aware of the current situation and what the zones are - red, yellow, whatever - but me myself, the person playing the character has no freaking clue yet. Just hooked up with the underground folks, have a gun and am going out into a "Red Zone" for the first time. Anything you found that helped?

It seems to me that unless you are going the VR route, or really really really want upgraded resolution (4K rumored), staying with the current PS4 is fine.   Im still on the fence for VR, as I haven't seen games/apps that make it a must yet.   Still, looks like the consoles are embracing it.   

We'll have to see what the reality of the games is for different platforms. 

Even without a 4K TV, if you can get full 1080p resolution at 60fps with higher resolution textures and better post processing on the NEO I would be happy with that over a regular PS4 being slightly downscaled from event the current PC build.

I'm still finding this whole situation offensive.

Meanwhile, the PS4 is still facing a storage issue that needs to be fixed last year.

While they should upgrade the base store model, the PS4 storage is easily upgradeable at a low cost.

Up to 2tb internally, no limit externally.  I see a 4tb 2.5" drive, and at the same $/GB price as the 2tb drives but it's too thick (15mm vs the 9.5mm HD bay)

That was one of the first things I did with mine, swap in a 2TB drive and it was entirely painless.
