This game on a 4k TV with HDR is one the most beautiful, graphically amazing games I've seen in a long time. The gameplay videos on YouTube do not do this game justice.

Very nice, indeed... 75" 4K doesn't hurt either.  icon_cool

Pre-ordered HZD. Backed Torment. And, like others, may pick up the new Zelda on the WiiU as I don't seem myself getting a Switch.

Ditto. Pre-ordered as well.  icon_cool

inXile is offering backers a console version for an additional $18 if enough people sign up.

And... they didn't.  icon_cry

I actually pre-ordered after the reviews came out.  It seems up my alley.  Plus, I like the redhead.

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.

Got some bonus monies this year so pulled the trigger on a PS4 Pro to go with our 4K Sony.  icon_cool  (hopefully)

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
76  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
