Finished up Virginia on the PS4. Still not really sure what in heck I played, nor how I got the small number of trophies that I did. Or what in the heck the ones I didn't even mean. Sure, it's a "single-player first-person thriller set in a small town with a secret" and you "experience a missing person investigation through the eyes of graduate FBI agent Anne Tarver" but dang. No dialogue. Disjointed because... flashbacks? No puzzles but rather points of interactivity that move the story... forward? Heck if I know. Such an odd duck.  paranoid

Just watched the 3rd episode last night and I'm not sure what to think, especially if the finale is all those things the Polygon article mentions. Out of curiosity, do they ever explain what "The OA" means? I have a guess but it's not really based on anything so far other than... guessing.

So I ended up ordering this as well after reading all this. Now I just need to dust off and recharge my Vita. Oh, and the "Lionheart" version was the same price as the regular one on Amazon, so went that route.  thumbsup

I'll never touch the MP, but would highly recommend it just on the strength of the SP campaign.

Good to know, I'm the same way and it was the only reason I picked it up at half price. Firmly embedded in my backlog at the moment, though.  ninja

So how does it work, how does Blizzard Mountain incorporate into the game?

Was bummed to find out that they removed some trophies from the PS4 version of the game. In the Geothermal Valley had spent some time checking out the well, which seemed to be expecting me to jump into it. Searching online found an Achievement (and alleged trophy) called "For my next trick" for performing a dive into it. When I finally managed to do that and nothing happened, I found it was one of three that aren't there:

1) For my next trick - jump into a well
2) Henny Penny - Fall to your death from the lift (Baba Yaga)
3) Why did the chicken cross the Vale - Ride the lift back to the other side (Baba Yaga)

What does it say when the game starts up - something about a FF game for fans and people who have never played one before? I wonder how much of what Gratch is feeling is because of this? Found this article where they talk about some of the things they did to accommodate both demographics.

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
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: November 27, 2016, 06:23:46 PM
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.
