hmm... only one more character wipe

Reduced Wipes: Working on a system to patch without requiring as many character wipes in the future. This will require one more wipe and thatís it.

well, whenever that happens I shall get the game.  Unless, by some Xmas miracle, it goes on sale during a Holiday sale.


Nooo. My house is going away! (Not that I made much progress, but still)

Guillermo del Toro or go home.


EDIT:  And it looks like JGL is confirmed...as a producer.  However, the rumor is that he will star and may even direct.

I like the kid, and I'm certain there are many worse choices, but, no.

Joseph Gordon Levitt. He's one of the most talented younger actors of his generation. I heard he did a pretty good job with his directorial debut, 'Don John'.

There's a tip for you!

Looks like a good place to call home. biggrin

Another tip: Your Matter Manipulator should only be used to get enough wood and cobblestone to make a pickaxe and a normal axe. Then you can tuck it away and never use it again. Also yes, the pickaxe uses the same left/right button feature that the Matter Manip did.

Also, holding shift changes your 'affect size' with your pickaxe/MM/placing blocks. From a 3x3 or 2x2 grid to a single square.

And the game is pretty well developed so far, IMHO. The main issue is the lack of a good tutorial and really explaining things.

Great tips! Yes, I think this game is very far along. They need to put a tutorial in..but it can wait. There are guides on the developer's forum that teach you many things about the game.

I hope Hollywood never makes a 'Sandman' film or tv show. 'Sandman' was always 'alternative' and 'indie'. They should just give some talented young buck director a limited budget--let's say 5 mill--and just say to him (or her)..'Do whatever the fuck you want with it'. I'll bet you we'll get a kickass Sandman film that way.
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games you are looking forward to in 2014? on: December 16, 2013, 03:16:32 PM
My Wanted titles for 2014 are...

WatchDogs (PC or PS4): Open-world hacking/criminal intrigue? Bring it on!
InFamous: Second Son (PS4): Will buy the PS4 when it's released. Looks fantastic!
Destiny (PS4): Never cared for 'Halo', but I'm intrigued by Bungie's new offering.
Elder Scrolls MMO: If it's as compelling as Skyrim, yep, it's gonna be great.
Uncharted 4: Naughty Dog Next gen Nathan Drake adventures on the PS4? Sold!
Planetary Annihilation: Spiritual succesor to Total Annihilation on the PC. Yep. I want that!
War For the Overworld: Spiritual succesor to Dungeon Keeper on the PC. Yep. Bring it!
TitanFall (PC): No Xbone for me, thanks.. but will play it on the PC.

Played a bit more tonight. One hour turned into two.. then three. And I was able to build my first house in-game.  nod



It was tricky figuring out how to build. The game has no building tutorial. Then I figured out that your matter generator can materialize/dematerialize matter in the foreground or background depending what mouse button you click (foreground - left, background - right). There's a tip for you!

Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, reuse all the old assets, just redo the combat system and levels to suit them.

Bioforge

Wasn't 'Enslaved' just re-released on the PC a month ago or such on Steam? I heard good things about that one.

Would love updates to those titles.

I have a copy of Ring Of Red for the PS2 still to this day. One game to dig out and play someday.

I remember Syndicate and Tenchu too. Two franchises that are sorely missed.

Man, I want another Emperor: Battle For Dune.  Or another Dark Reign. I want Funcom to make an Anarchy Online 2.

In the past few days, I've been thinking about 'Spore' and how I wish that game could have been what it promised to be. 'Spore' had so much promise, but it squandered by a dumbing-down by corporate EA jackasses. By the end, you had nothing but a boring and repetitious space stage with no real strategy endgame/gameplay.

And what a shame. What the game could have been had they made some critical gameplay decisions: What if the design of your creatures truly determined their chances of survival to the space stage? What if, from the spore stage, the game could have generated 'nemesis' creatures that evolved alongside yours and became your arch-enemies in the space stage? What if the planets in the space stage had different qualities and were suited for inhabiting by certain types of creatures? What if the game could have truly made us think about evolution at a grand stage instead of devolving into selling cutesy creature-creation packs?

God, I hate EA.

....

Other games I wish could make a comeback: 'Dungeon Keeper'. Man, I really would love to see a current gen version of that game. A sequel for the Shiny RTS 'Sacrifice' would be super. There was this cool, little Activision RTS game--'Netstorm'. Anyone remember it? You played these islands in the sky battling each other. I would love to see that come back. When is 'Command And Conquer' gonna make a comeback?

So many games I miss.

Does anyone really want to another 'Bad Boys' sequel? Martin Lawrence must be really hurting for that paycheck.. from whatever van down the river he's been living at these past few years.

After Will Smiths last few Box Office performances he's not exactly Mr superstar garanteed box office anymore either.

Will Smith is also hurting for that paycheck. It's his need that will make this happen. 'After Earth' was a disaster. And the fool passed on being in the 'Independence Day' sequels.

Looks like any old sci-fi film out there these days. The Wachowski's really need new material. 'The Matrix' was on cable the other night and I was taken aback as to how watchable and enduring that movie is. Too bad they've not found another story like that since.

It's looking ni-ce. I think 'Edge Of Tomorrow' is a generic title. Much rather they kept the 'All You Need Is Kill', but I'll see this.

You didn't need 200 pixels to make the table FYI. That just shows the 'sell' cost (of course you can't sell right now, so that's just there needlessly). When you highlight the item in your build menu, you'll see the cost of it there in goods and pixels (normally pretty cheap, and if needed).

Thanks for clearing that out. I was driving myself insane getting the pixels.

Back!... from a succesful play session. Game was patched overnight and it's now stable (OpenGL). I was able to accomplish a good amount in a short time--Learned how to heal myself (farm plant fibres and craft bandages). Cooked alien meat over a campfire and ate. Farmed cobblestone and coal underground (placed cool torches all over the place)... and was able to build an iron furnace.

The game is very soothing. I love the feel of it. Very creative. The day and night cycles on the planet are great.. I went underground during the day and came out at night.. Love the atmosphere!

Currently, game hardly runs on DirectX11 with the latest Nvidia drivers. Crashes all the time. But it's more stable if you run it on OPenGL.

Next.. cooking some alien meat!

Impressions:

I'm not to happy. After playing for about 2.5 hours last night and this morning, this game is an exercise in frustration. It's very much a beta... and it crashes... constantly. I'm running on Windows 7 professional.. and the crashes are numerous. You beam into a planet--Crash. You kill something--crash. You get the idea. I've not been able to accomplish anything as result of the constant crashes. First mission is to go down to a planet and gather materials for a wodden table. I can't farm the measly 200 pixels necessary to craft the table due to losing progress due to crashes.. and due to getting killed constantly by mobs. The game doesn't tell you how to heal yourself. Very frustrating.

When the game is stable, there's a certain magic there. The music is soothing and the pixelated, old-school graphics are charming.. But if you're not willing to participate in a paid-Beta.. Stay away.
104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 09, 2013, 09:07:35 PM
I snagged this on Steam. Will be playing later tonight!

Someone posted this impression of the game on Kotaku.. that and the posts here pushed me over the edge to buy.

Quote
I am not ashamed to say that I spent my entire weekend playing this game. My entire weekend. I've been running a server from my home for a group of friends of mine. This game is pure magic. The four of us are having a blast.

In hopes that this message is seen by someone who had a part in making Starbound, you guys have created something truly special. The "magic" feeling I have with Starbound is similar to the one I had during the PS2 era, with games such as: Final Fantasy 12 (I LIKED IT, OKAY?!), FFX, SoTC, and the Persona series.

Games this past generation, to me, felt like they missed their full potential and were missing something. Starbound seems to have included a bit of everything and is still expanding. I'm absolutely loving this game.

You're missing out if you haven't purchased Starbound. If there's one moment / feature that should sell you this game it would be the first time you look at the starmap.

Happy Travels, Kotakians!

The Twitch stream via Xbone has been kind of terrible. Quality is poor, it keeps doing a weird buffering thing where it replays the last few seconds of what just happened, and a few times it has just stopped playing saying the program was over.

been streaming through Joystiq (who I think are just linking to Spike's stream), and it's been fairly crappy as well.  lots of stuttering and pixelation.  been rewatching the trailers via alternate methods.

I've been streaming it thru the SpikeTV website. Stream has been fine for me this past hour and half.

'No Man's Sky' looks like it has potential.. but, did these people watch 'Oblivion' 'cause their game logo and one of the starships looks straight out of that movie.

Also, apparently 'procedural' is the trendiest word at the moment.. but I keep thinking this could all just be a big bore like 'Spore'. Remember all the 'infinite possibilities' of 'Spore'?
