1  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked $30 (normally $120) 20% All Games for 2 Years on: October 30, 2014, 08:25:43 PM
Just did my first GCU pre-order online for Dragon Age: Inquisition... nice to get 20% off and release day shipping for free. And double points.  icon_cool

Currently replaying this on my PS3.  icon_biggrin

With you on the no sequel... or why they didn't use the engine ('Blitz' I think) in another game, or did they and I missed it?

I really wanted to stop buying physical media but damn that's a lot of money to be saved. I hate the idea of going all the way across town to Best Buy every time I want a game but 20% is not insignificant.

Consider this the nail in that coffin.  Free shipping over $35 and each game was listed as "expedited shipping" when I preordered.  Also, when I factor in games in 2015, it adds up to a lot more than $140.

Sweet! Thank goodness I'm still a physical media Luddite.  icon_wink

Should I treat it just like a PC backup UPS?

Oh, that kind of backup. Yes. I've got a small APC UPS supporting all that (receiver included) and it works just fine. However, I'm not looking for any kind of extended "play during the outage" coverage, more like enough time to calmly wind things down and shut'er down.

Now that I've upgraded to the 2.0 release of the O/S I see I'm not alone in it not coming out of 'Rest' (formerly Standby) mode. Awesome. Get to unplug it again and then have to run a disk check and lastly chastise me for unplugging the power cord in rest mode. Again.  finger

Hope they fix this soon.

the short version is that I'll be able to buy any new XB1 games for 20%-off through the next year.

I was blown away when I looked into adding Unlocked and found out it was $120... $30 makes it much more palatable.  icon_smile

So, this Tuesday.

When it was posted it was Saturday of last week.  Now it is Sunday so it is this week.  slywink

So picky... they're basically synonymous. If I meant next your way I would have said "a week from next Tuesday".  icon_razz

Version 2.0 of the PS4 OS unveiled.

The PS4 already displays apps in order of last use, doesn't it?

It does. Guess the question is around this statement:

"The Content Area will now show the last 15 apps and games that were opened, for easier access, while the Library will allow for better sorting. Users may still have to deal with the endless scrolling if they have many programs installed but at least itíll be easier to scroll through them."

Perhaps it will limit it to 15 with the rest accessible from the Library?

Tempted by Fantasia, but I need to read more and see if it's something my 4-year-old will enjoy.  Also really wish it came with Disney animated movie soundtrack songs.

There is a demo available.

Lots of PC customization information.  I really hope Disable Gore (22:55) is in the console version.  I know my kids will enjoy watching me play so I would love to be able to turn this off

That option only disables the display of blood splatters on your characters after battles.

Right, not all gore but specifically "persistent gore".

So...the upgrade to the full unlock costs $50. But from the wording on the PS Blog post its seems this is treated not like a sale item but the free games you get with the sub. If the PS+ sub ever lapse you lose access tot he game. I really hope this is a miscommunication on their part...

This is exactly what everyone thinks at this point - the 'discount' is only yours while you keep your PS+ sub. So you don't really 'own' it unless you spend the full $60.

In short, don't gimp yourself by trying to save $10.

EDIT: You also get some kind of demo by just having PS+, but it's absolutely not the full game at all.

I wouldn't really call it a demo. It's more of a shareware thing in some ways, with 11 tracks and 10 cars, and the ability to earn the platinum trophy.

I couldn't find this in the store, even when searching... all I could find was the $10 discount.  icon_frown

Almost didn't click on the thread, 'river rafting survival sim' didn't really seem like a thing I would be interested in. Unfortunately, I watched the Kickstarter pitch and now I'm a backer.  paranoid

Wasn't sure this needed its own thread, so putting it here as I just saw this over on Blues: Redbox Instant shutting down October 7th. Could not compete. Never saw the point of paying for yet-another-streaming-service when I already have both Netflix and Amazon Prime. I do use Redbox for physical media rentals but this... nope.
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is your primary gaming device? on: October 05, 2014, 03:02:58 PM
Far and away my PS4 with my PC in the mix as well. The only thing that's gotten me to turn on my XB1 in quite some time is Horizon 2 but Shadow of Mordor on the PS4 has a much stronger pull.

39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360,XB1] Forza Horizon 2 on: October 01, 2014, 01:18:34 PM
Damn, but that took for-freaking-ever to install. Downloaded and played 'Chariot' in the interim. When it had enough to be "Ready to start" I cranked it up and ran the car in from the dock to the festival. Dude does his little intro, throws his arms out wide, says "Welcome to Horizon!" and it goes urk-urk-urk and basically crashes back to the desktop or whatever we call that now. None of the three H2 tiles I had would actually get it to launch again, ended up waiting for the full copy to complete, reboot the box and then launched again... and reran the drive in again as it hadn't saved. Yay!  finger

By then it was too late to stay up so will have to continue the adventure tonight.

You can see a lot Assassin Creed/Batman in this game. 

I keep hearing this and I just don't think I can resist the power of that word combination.

Funny because in the article I linked to on the previous page the one reviewer said "I feel like Mordor is the best Assassinís Creed game ever made".  icon_wink
