161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ori and the Blind Forest - a platformer made around the world on: May 05, 2015, 07:11:31 PM
I strongly disagree. The disappearing platform section in Guacamelee has pissed me off way more than anything Ori has thrown at me. I was impressed with Ori's level design, and the fact that the tools you have support the actions that make you feel "clever" when you've been able to use your skills to traverse that which seems impossible.

Those disappearing platforms? It has made me rage-quit several times already (and I've enjoyed most of the game otherwise). You can fall off the edges of those platforms far too easily, and sometimes pass through them even though they materialize below you. It feels cheap.

To those who lament Ori's difficulty - Moon Studios has made it no secret that this games' challenge level was inspired by Super Meat Boy. I just wish it wasn't as buggy as it is.

Got a message back from Moon Studios.

My stuck-in-wall will be fixed when they drop the patch for XB1.

166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/5) on: May 04, 2015, 03:39:16 PM
XB1 should also be getting

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition
Slice Zombies (Kinect game) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sjw_5qboGw

Think fruit Ninja with zombies. Ugh.
167  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron on: May 04, 2015, 03:31:53 PM
I found there wasn't enough Hulk. Each char kinda gets a "moment" in the movie, but none of it works as well as

Spoiler for Hiden:
when they are just sitting around bonding. Frankly, those were the best scenes.

Also, the homeless rate of that city went, well, sky-high. biggrin
168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Which Game Did You Quit the Fastest? on: May 03, 2015, 09:40:40 PM
Bladestorm: Nightmare. Ugh.

I'd add Final Fantasy on 360 (where you begin in the subway) I got outside and thought:FTS. Traded it the next day.

NFS:Rivals was also one of the polite declines.

171  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Surface Pro 3 i5/4 GB/128 GB on: April 30, 2015, 04:33:56 PM
I have the BT Arc Touch Mouse (Surface edition) sitting in the small pocket all the time, and put the pen beside it. On the right I keep things like the MS Miracast dongle, power brick (if I need it when traveling, though generally I do not), earphones, microfibre cloth for my glasses. I also have one of those sim pins in a little case to be able to pop the memory chip out of my phone as needed, and sometimes a Quest bar or Power Crunch.

I ended up with two docking stations (bought one, ended up with a second one due to some problems I had with the first one) and an extra power brick. Since I use the MS sculpt ergo deskop at work (bought one for myself, then the company bought me one and I moved mine over to the docking bay) I find that I enjoy my Surface more.

The pro keyboards are more than serviceable, but I've always detested "laptop keyboards" and the touch pads, while useful, end up occasionally aggravating me when my palm triggers them and moves the cursor on me. It can be disabled, however, and since you have a touch screen there's no need to have to rely on it or a mouse.

I also use my SP3 to stream via netflix and a monoprice HDMI <-> mini displayport cable at the GF's house. Yeah, Miracast, but I found that in practice the colors are faded, and sometimes it f***s up. I don't know if that's a W10 issue, but I seem to remember struggling with 8.1 as well.

173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/28) on: April 30, 2015, 01:28:48 PM
One more game to add to the roster - XB1 got Project Root, a SHMUP that reminds me of Raptor, Zone 66 and one PC game I can't remember the title of (multi-directional SHMUP that almost required the 4MB of VRAM in my ATI card back in the day - this one was a gorgeous multiplayer game that came out around the time the first 3DFX Monster Voodoo 1 cards came out).

It's really bugging me. What was the name of that game? It was Windows, not MS-DOS based. ARG!!
174  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Any opinions on Chromebooks? on: April 30, 2015, 01:13:59 PM
Turtle, there is an i5 Surface Pro 3 in the sale/trade forum (if you were looking for a cheaper "ultrabook" solution).

It doesn't include the keyboard, so be sure to include that in your cost calulations.

Having a full touch screen is refreshing, and along with all input methods I can't go back to not having one - I work as a Systems Admin for a major financial company, and administer the infrastructure for an IBM owned Content Management and Business Process Management solution. (heavy use of Office products: Excel, Word, Sharepoint, Powerpoint; Unix and Windows Server administration etc...).

When I'm on-call I'm far more comfortable going out places.

As for my chromebook experience, one of my co-workers has one and he loves it. Mind you, he also lived on a netbook for the longest time.


175  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Surface Pro 3 i5/4 GB/128 GB on: April 30, 2015, 01:00:49 PM
Fantastic product for my uses - if I didn't have one, I would have bought this from you. biggrin

Paired with the SP3 keyboard it is great.

I highly recommend a Waterfield Designs bag (I've got the SP3 Outback Solo - aka Indiana Jones' purse).

Spent all my gaming time in Neverwinter.

Loving it sofar, and the Double XP weekend was lovely. Climbed from 27 - 34 on my rogue, and from 8-21 on my [barbarian].

They call them other things, but I don't care.

I'll say this:

If you don't already have Shovel Knight on another platform, this is a must buy.  It's simply a fantastic game.

As for me, I'm keeping my eye on Assassinís Creed Chronicles: China, but I'm hesitant for sure.

http://yachtclubgames.com/2015/03/shovel-knight-is-coming-to-xbox-one-with-very-special-guests/

I'm waiting for the XB1 version with Battletoads.

They say April, so it's either this week or next (no delays announced)

Comes out next week on XB1. No idea how battletoads works in yet, but the XB1 purchase is  cross-buy with Windows.
Caveat for Windows cross-buy - apparently it's for Windows 10 only (so yeah, you'll need to upgrade when it becomes available).

No word on if the tech preview edition qualifies - I'll let you know next week. biggrin

Apparently, the PS version of Shovel Knight has Kratos. 
Nice!
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/21) on: April 23, 2015, 04:19:37 PM
So in addition to the list above, the XB1 releases this week are:

Aaruís Awakening (metroidvania-ish? reminds me of a less colorful Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet)
Infinity Runner (werewolf in space)
Happy Wars (XB1) Apr 24.

There is also an advertising for Conker's game on Project Spark.

I'm sorry Purge, I couldn't read your post due to your enormous bicep from your profile pic covering everything.

But yeah, if you're ever in the area, swing on by.  Wear a cup, spider pranks get the "Johnny Cage" move from me slywink

Are there bumper stickers with "I prank'd Kato and all I got was a shadowkick in the junk" available?
