as long as you have the account.

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.

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.

Also what Jumangi said - I thought that was supposed to clearly be him getting his powers.

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.

As to Summer and her role as Isabel Rochev, she's hoping she gets to wear the veil and goggles.  icon_wink

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

How was the quality?  able to set it to HD, looked great to me.
Was the ad intrusive?  Gods yes. It was about how awesome Bieber is and went on and on and freaking on. Finally killed it, restarted and got a normal XB1 DR3 commercial.
Could you run it fullscreen? Yes

Had my first 'issue' last night when I purchased Peggle 2. After it was downloaded, I launched it and was a little freaked out to see it blank the screen for a couple of beats and then just go back to the 'desktop' or Home or whatever. A restart of the console didn't change the behavior - launch, wait, CTD. Ended up uninstalling, then had to quit out of the Store as it still said Play, then I could Install it again and then finally... it worked.  icon_confused

That's not the point. It's there in the past consoles and the PS4, surprised to not find it on the XBone. Found something googling around saying that it would allegedly be in 'the next update' so I guess we'll see.

That sucks. I reported my defective (non Day One) controller on Wednesday with Amazon and they had a new one on my doorstep this afternoon.

Reading this page of the thread is there anyone here who hasn't had a hardware issue with the Xbone yet? Whether it's the controller or the disc drive?

And they need it right in the system too. While getting ready for work this morning, Hark and I discovered that double-tapping the X logo will toggle focus between app and snapped app.

Oh thank you!  I was hitting X, manually switching, and hitting A.  Nice to know you can just double tap and it will automatically switch over.

I just got mine setup last night and the introduction videos mention this at least twice.  ninja

Not having any experience with Windows 8 I am NOT a big fan of this interface, looks like it will take some time to get used to. Impressed with the voice command integration, though.  thumbsup

Of course, it all depends on how much downloading you do.  I have a 32GB which it shows as a '29GB Capacity' card with ~6GB left on it. I have ~30 games downloaded, a mixture of Vita & PSP / PS1 games plus saves and installed data from 10 cartridge games.

Went back to AC2 on the PS3 and it connects to UPlay just fine and shows me all of the previous AC games I've played. Create a support case but no clue how long it will be before it's answered or if it will be any kind of helpful.  [sigh]
