Sweet, just getting started with this as my current "limited amount of PC gaming time" game.  icon_cool

If anyone cares, they put up a preview video of the Summer Update coming soon.

Sadly, I pretty much only turn my Xbox One on when there's an update. My biggest issue with them is they have been focused on the "social" aspect of the console, that or the TV integration, neither of which have hardly any use for me. Yes, that makes me a non-social does not party or multi curmudgeon of a single player gamer, but hey... that's me all over.  nod

So leaving out crap like "Facebook Friends Finder", at least this time they addressed some non-social aspects of their silly interface:

Manage my collection was really needed
Alphabetic groups helps
Ready to Install moved to the left pane
My Games and Apps on the home screen
Combining stores on Xbox and W10

Oh, and Cortana. I have a Kinect but have never had much desire to talk to my Xbox. However, it is a positive step and as they noted, brings consistency across their three platforms.

Been following this off and on, looks like it has potential... and totally agree with your thoughts on the Spiders studio.

Overwatch XB1 and Total Warhammer. Haven't been able to play any video games that much for a few weeks now, but that has never stopped me from buying them smile

Argh... same here. The "never stopped me" part, hoping to not buy another dang game this week.  disgust

Holy crap, origin and end all in the same episode... and rhetorical question in this 'verse but is no-one safe? Figured they were pretty well f**ked but wasn't expecting that. And what was up with the killing of a White Walker with what I thought was just a crappy little spear? Valerian steel tip? Made by The Children for that purpose? Was shocked when she chucked it and it actually worked. eek

With my limited gaming time, I can have a hard time if I don't stay on top of a game and instead indulge my "ooo, shiny!" instinct and hop around to other games. I really appreciate when one takes the extra effort to give me a synopsis of "the story so far", or what was going on and what your goals were when you saved / stopped.

I had a bit of a problem with DOOM and its large levels at first but that was because I wasn't checking the map like I should have. Once I started doing that, with all of the information it brings, I spent less time wandering around lost. Less. icon_wink

Hey, I've been thinking "Hurt Me Plenty" was feeling too easy.  Maybe I do have some skillzzzzz after all slywink

I wish they would add SLI support already.

Hearing enough good things about Doom that I may give it a shot.  Trying to decide between PC or PS4 though...  

PC it is...20% off at GMG was too much to resist.  Downloading now.

Funny but when I went to GMG on Saturday for the discount it was "out of stock"... and not knowing when they would get more keys I just did the "stop by BB after lunch and get my Unlocked discount on a DVD with no game on it plus the Steam key on a piece of paper" thing. LOL
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4] Shadwen - stealth action from Frozenbyte on: May 16, 2016, 12:59:19 PM
Yeah, that really threw me when I first started it up since I had no idea about it going in. Changed one of the options before launching and got a dire warning that it could cause horrendous performance issues so use with caution. Figured okay, fine, got a nice big rig so lets go for it - watch the low-rez intro for the demo and then I'm greeted with what looked like a stuck / frozen game to me. Waited a bit and... nothing. Thought about quitting and dialing down that option but finally touched a movement key and I get a couple of frames. Move, stop, move, stop. Oh, okay, gotcha. That's... different.  icon_confused

Gonna stick with Engine's "interesting but I don't know that I want to play it for real" at the moment.

I just bit at 50% off, been following this for awhile now. Still a little burnt on EA titles so will probably wait for a while before I actually install and play the darn thing, though.

FO4 Season Pass so... Far Harbor. And I seem to recall pulling the trigger for yet-another-copy of Valkyria Chronicles some time ago.

See above mention of an "I'm too young to die" difficulty level, which comes with a pacifier and baby bonnet.  slywink

I'm a plus member so can't check but everything I can find online specifically says that it is required for PS4 multiplayer so pretty sure the answer to your question is yes.

There's a demo on Steam, probably on GOG as well, will most likely check it out over the weekend. As noted in the comments, does seem a bit... floaty.

I just got my Windows 10 version installed last night but haven't played, only saw that it sync'd up saves and I could have picked up from where I'd left off on the Xbox.  thumbsup

Only 'issues' I had at first were, okay you just installed but where did you install yourself? Never asked, turns out the default location for where 'apps' are saved is the C: drive of course, which is definitely not where I wanted it. Thankfully you can 'Move' them after the fact. Then there was the whole 'How in the heck do I quit?' moment... was using a 360 controller and finally figured out I had to grab the mouse and shove it up into the upper right-hand corner and then click on the 'x' in the title bar. Errr, okay.

Oh, and part way through Act 1 on Normal I decided to start over on Easy as I mostly just wanted to enjoy the story and minimize the combat. Rittchard, seem to recall you wondering if you can die on easy - the answer is yes, yes you can. In the parking lot trying to get Will's car, it seems that the car I was hunkered down behind blowed up or some such thing. Dead. Try again, Time Lord, try again. icon_neutral

Finished Act 1 late last night and was surprised how long the 'tv episode' was. Streamed down without issues, very nicely done.

Back in 1999 when Activision was about to release Heavy Gear II, they had a contest which I won. Got a signed copy of a "gold master" for the game and a box full of swag, primarily a video card (3dfx Voodoo something?) and other stuff I don't really recall.

Out of curiosity, what Nvidia driver do you have?  I'm not having any issues but I've read that "the latest" drivers are "completely borked". Does sound like heat or a failing card, however, in spite of the temp being fine. Good luck. I hate tracking down shit like that.  disgust

Fafhdr, rather than enter the tags manually you can also just highlight the text you want to "strike through" and then click the fourth button over on the top row. The end result is the same... this and you'll see the tags if you quote the message when replying. icon_wink

Aesthetically, the first one looks much better but I would guess it could depend on the look you are going for. The second one looks pretty... raw, like the cover came off and no-one bothered to replace it.  Industrial chic perhaps?  icon_wink

First week sales and the $40 price point: Five million dollars in revenue. Better than Braid's first year but not enough to cover the cost. Yet.

And... 'stuck' in the first area with seven switches completed but no idea how to even locate the eight which I need to unlock the bottom panel on the gate. Gentle hint, kind folks?

Oh boy, you're in for a great time with this game considering the part you're stuck at is the tutorial. slywink

Yah, yah, rub it in Puzzle Master. Thanks for nothing. finger

It was late and I was dead tired so I'm going to blame it on that. Next time I'll bring a fresh brain... well, fresher anywho.  icon_wink

One thing that helps with this game is to think outside the box, sometimes literally. You were certain that you just couldn't find a missing puzzle, but simply couldn't track it down. In those cases, it's a good idea to take a step back and reconsider your conclusions, because you might have made an assumption that the game is now telling you isn't true. In this case you're looking for something that doesn't exist.

I don't get a lot of time to play lately but FWIW, my second session saw me solve this almost immediately - so coming back with a different mindset definitely helped. I had found all of the panels, of course, but for some reason had thought... and I guess I should spoiler this:

Spoiler for First area:
Thought that I couldn't simply turn one output cable off when lighting up the other, this on that one panel with one in and two out. Which is why I ran all over the place looking for something else more obtuse for the solution. When I came back and simply reset / reran the panel for the other output, everything was unlocked. D'oh.  Roll Eyes
Now wandering around the next area, learning the meaning behind the white and black boxes inside the squares in the panel.  icon_cool
