  • The Last Exile; don't know how to describe, but it's for sure epic.
  • Darker Than Black; somewhat dark urban arcana (may also be on Netflix)

I loved The Last Exile and went to the trouble of tracking down a copy of 'The Murata Range Complete Set Edition' on DVD back in 2008. And yes, Darker Than Black is on Netflix.

Crawley, I'm curious what version you have as I haven't seen a patch since the one that came down on the same day I installed it, which was last Friday. Mine shows 1.3.1-14561 on the main menu. Thanks.

Try restarting Steam. There was a patch last night.

Sorry, should have mentioned that I don't have it from Steam. I have it directly from UPlay via GMG.

Watched the first one last night. Turned out to be 'again' but by the time I realized that I was invested and had no problems sitting through it a second time. Hopefully on to the sequel tonight.  thumbsup

Question, is his wife in the second the same girl / character from the first? I could check (or wait and see) but thought I'd ask.  ninja

Random pick - watched Sexy Evil Genius last night and enjoyed it.

Was interesting (in an odd way) seeing them try to pass off flashback Katee as 15 plus Michelle Trachtenberg and Seth Green together, Oz and Dawn making out.  icon_wink

At least with both consoles now you can simply plug the controller in and let it charge with the unit on standby. Apparently checking the charge level is another feature that MS will (allegedly) be adding in 'a future update'.

Don't forget... The Power of the Cloud! Games don't need to ship everything on disc but can download things from the cloud as needed. And from what I've read, they are working on Blu-ray formats with multiple layers that can hold 200 or 250 GB. But you're right, the normal dual-layer capacity is 50GB.

Isn't the demo an optional side-story that doesn't appear in the main game, similar to how the Dead Rising 2 demo was handled?  We should probably have Gratch check it out to be sure!

Yes it is.  And you can bring over a lot of stuff and I swear I saw what exactly came over once I but I can't find the quote.  I believe items and the town you build might come over but not you levels.  However, like I said I can't find the exact information.

FYI - the guy standing to the left of the throne explains all that.

Anybody know how to access the HDD from the Xbox One menu?,i want to see how much space there is

Can't be done.

This blows my mind.

From what I read, they didn't want you to have to worry about this so they manage space 'automatically'. Trying to install something that needs more space than you have available? It deletes the oldest things you haven't used... and least that's what I recall from discussion pre-launch. Or perhaps it just tells you you need to go delete stuff. Haven't managed to fill mine up yet... I guess.  icon_wink

Here's the official page on the subject.

Interestingly, my PS+ account was set up wrong and didn't autorenew at one point.  I rejoined and was still able to keep my PS+ games.

Right... it's just that you wouldn't be able to play them during the period where you hadn't renewed yet.
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: January 01, 2014, 05:24:17 PM
They decided you didn't need to worry about that so it's not possible. Heard they may be adding it in a future update, though.

I had some GS credit, so I grabbed a used copy of this today.  I've heard over and over again that the things I would like (i.e. superb story and characters) more than make up for the this I wouldn't like (i.e. survival horror'ish gameplay, fucking zombies), so I'm going to give it a legit try and see how it goes. 

I think you'll enjoy the game a lot more if you set the difficulty to easy right off the bat.

For sure...that's standard practice for me with any game these days. 

Tried firing it up, and it looks like the disc is bad.  I get the logo in the corner, but the game itself won't load.  And, of course, the only other Gamestop with a used copy is about 30 minutes away.  Guess I won't be playing tonight. frown

FWIW it takes a shit load of time to load the game every time you start.

Not an uncommon problem with the game, you can find plenty of people looking for help since the game was released. This was interesting advice I found that people insisted worked for them:

The following is an actual workaround, so don't laugh.

Do this: Eject the game disc. Grab it with one hand. With your other hand tilt your PS3 up (around 45) lifting it from the front. Insert the game disc and wait a couple of seconds until it reads, then you can put it down.

Worked for me 100% of the times.

If you have large hands, I'd still suggest getting a grip.

Any recommendations? My hands feel like they're cramping up on my XL (at least it's uncomfortable to use for any real length of time) and maybe this will help.

I was wondering the same thing.

I had to step away from the game when I got to the section where you drop down a level on your own ("we'll just wait right here for you to kill everything") where I died many clicker deaths, seemingly no matter what I did. Need to get back to it.

I struggled with that section too. Only after I had finished it did the game deem me worthy of receiving the tutorial hint that clickers are blind. Had I known that, the section would have been considerably easier. Without knowing that, alerting the clicker meant certain, unavoidable death, when you can actually avoid it by getting a little distance from it then moving at a slow crawl or even stopping. This requires you to deal with the other guys in the area first, but that's a much smaller problem.

Thanks TiLT & Canuck, I'll keep that advice in mind when next I drop back into the game.  thumbsup

When I've been in BB lately and hear people asking about either console they get the same story - while supplies may come in during the week, they only put them out for sale on Sunday morning. And they all sell... but no clue what that means as to quantity / console. Heck, I couldn't even find accessories for the XBone - was looking for a Play and Charge kit and ending up at Amazon and waiting 10 days before they could get it to me.

Of course. His comment was directed my way... someone still at the 'foreshadowing his origin' episode and not yet having seen the 'getting his powers' mid-season finale. Hence some of my other puzzled looks with regards to talk of Shadow and Slade and Solomon Grundy and their various appearances / fates. All caught up now, thank you very much.

This last episode certainly seemed to foreshadow Flash's  origin  from what little I recall.

I think it WAS his actual origin story, not just a foreshadow  nod  I think plans for the spinoff are already in motion.

I didn't get the impression he has any powers yet. Since it's all about a chemical spill mixed with lightning, I was thinking all that talk about how dangerous the way their stock was laid out was setting the stage for the accident that gives him the powers. I guess we'll see. And yes, I've read he is in just two episodes for the 'mid-season finale' and then is off to his own series.  icon_cool
