Just Redbox'd this last night to watch it again.  thumbsup

Had to turn on the subtitles to understand what they were saying when calling out the cargo they were hauling for the exchange:

We're hauling Aqua Cola!
We're hauling produce!
We're hauling Mother's Milk!


Sitting there thinking "Aqua Cola?"  Oh... water. I guess he needed to give it a brand name so he could copyright it, eh? icon_wink

I'm surprised there isn't more interest around the release of Soma. If you enjoy horror games, you should absolutely take a closer look at this title. It is getting fabulous reviews:

Found this from 2012 when looking for In-Wall speakers a couple of years ago for a friend, too bad they're no longer keeping it up-to-date.

I'd be curious what you love about it as I've owned them all but have a hard time actually playing any of them for any length of time before giving up. And I still have Ground Zeroes. Un-played.  icon_frown

Was trying to find a YouTube review of it I'd seen from someone who was less than impressed but I wasn't logged in so have no history to back through. He got very worked up, might have had an accent and was constantly ringing a bell (like the kind you'd have on a service desk - ding! ding!) whenever he made a 'point'. What I remember was the 'open world' aspect of it wasn't really all that open (roads only?) and the AI was supposed to be bad. Anyone know whom that might be?

I don't know why you'd focus on some Youtuber when the game is critically acclaimed from essentially every gaming site out there...

Anyhoo, as to your questions.  Afghanistan is sort of funneled into roads and canyons, but you can still basically go anywhere in it as you see fit, Africa on the other hand does have wide open plains so that complaint (which I think is rather unfounded really) is addressed in the second zone.  As to the AI it can be dumb, but does a reasonable job, it investigates when your noisy or sees something, checks last known positions, shoots down fultons, and wakes up sleeping soldiers.  Yeah you can make it do some dumb stuff if you try but like, what game can't you do that in?

Graphically the game looks great, and runs at a solid 60fps on consoles.

Gameplay it really shines.  The controls, specifically in shooter mode which I'm using, make a lot of sense.  So that's one way it's been improved over previous games.  The other thing is it is very much a stealth/combat sandbox whereas I feel the previous games (and frankly most stealth games) got a little too puzzley.  This does not suffer from that problem, you don't feel like you are trying to solve a puzzle, and more that you are coming up with a strategy.  You can go loud or quiet, and the game gives you numerous tools for either approach.  You have sleep grenades, decoys, stun grenades, mines, emp mines, sleep mines, anti-vehicular mines, c4, silenced weapons, stun weapons, a vast array of guns from pistols to assault rifles, to sniper rifles to grenade and rocket launchers and machine guns, to eventually being able to fully customize and build your own guns from parts of others.  You get to choose the time of day or night and the general approach you take to infiltrating a base, you can even call in air strikes or helicopter overwatch.

Then there is the extra strategy layer of managing your base, research, and sending teams on combat missions.

Thanks for that, helps with deciding on going in on yet-another MGS game or not.  icon_wink

And I wasn't "focusing" on any one in particular, just would like to go back and hear his rant again now that I've been off in happy review land for awhile. Got the impression he had a whole string of reviews with this little bell so thought maybe someone could point me in the right direction. No big.

Question, will going through Ground Zeroes actually give me a good idea as to what Phantom Pain will be like?

And of course we had to have a cliff-hanger of a season ending episode.

Yeah that was annoying.  That said, I was really impressed with much of the rest of this season.  I loved the Hunt for Red October submarine action plotline.  Some pretty convoluted/contrived plot situations but extremely well executed.  Haven't seen this style of ship to sub action in a long time and I really enjoyed it.  All in all I thought it was a more engaging season than the first.

Was a bit worried as to how they were going to have the Nathan James manage to take out the nuclear sub (it's not like that wasn't going to happen somehow) but I thought it worked out very nicely. thumbsup

I've seen what this looks like on a high-end PC and was wondering... how is it on a PS4? Anyone playing there and can comment on that version?

I've seen it on the PS4 via my neighbor, but I own it on the PC, ultra settings. The PS4 looks excellent. To me the differences seem to be:

1) better framerate on PC
2) PS4 seems to be High settings, as opposed to Very High or Ultra

You cant go wrong with the PS4 version.

Excellent, thanks for that.  thumbsup

I'll echo the 'three pages max' suggestion, even with as much time as we old dudes have spent working. It doesn't need a ton of gory detail past the most recent couple, typically. And there was nothing I hated more than getting a resume to evaluate that was 14 pages of filler and I've seen longer!

"I attended meetings"
"I used Word to write documents"
"I used Excel to write spreadsheets"
"I used (tool that only does X) to do X"

Oh really? And at every position you've ever held? That's... amazing.  Roll Eyes

I think Sony is bat shit crazy to stubbornly stick to a controller that all but about 4 people think is vastly inferior to the Xbox ones from the last 2 generations. WE WANT THE LEFT STICK HIGHER!

Errr... no. No we don't. And this from someone with both from practically all generations.

so far it works fine on my ipad 3

Interesting... they seemed to be very adamant about what is (and isn't) supported:

SUPPORTED DEVICES
iPhone 5 and above; iPad 4th gen and above; iPad Mini 2nd gen (Retina) and above; iPod 6th gen.
Other devices are not supported. Thank you for your understanding!

I guess it would help understand my frustration when I say that the pre-release marketing for this game specifically said that it could be played either alone or with another player. They never gave any sort of indication that multiplayer would be forced upon you. To most people that might be a pleasant surprise. To me it was false advertising, leading me to purchase a product I might otherwise have reconsidered.

This sums up my anger with the game. I would have loved to play solo, or invite one specific friend to enjoy the landscape with me. Instead, when I attempted to play it was clear the person who dropped in to my game had already completed it in the past. He was a complete distraction throughout the short time I played.

Mine as well. While I would normally pick up stuff like this, really hesitant.

I'm in somewhat the same boat, have fond memories from back in the day of the original on my IIGS but found the last version a bit crap and never got very far with it. While I never thought we needed another one, I'm willing to give this "long awaited sequel" a shot and backed it... at the lowest level that would get me the game.  nod

There's going to be a point where they can't sell any more $400 or $2500 ships.  The monthly expenses are going to surpass incoming funding and they will run out of cash real quick.  In other words, I think they're fucked.

So glad I waited and didn't jump in when this games hype was getting insane.

I only put $75 in right at the beginning, its hard to believe some people have dumped thousands into this.

Same. $30 for me back in 2012 and nothing since.
