1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Help Coop pick a PS4 game to play on: Today at 01:28:24 PM
Since no one else mentioned it, I'll just say that Uncharted 4 is great. I never played the the third game despite loving the second because I had heard mixed reviews, but UC4 was pretty mind-blowing at times. I think I even liked it more than The Last of Us (which I also loved). The point being, just because you didn't enjoy UC3 doesn't mean you should necessarily skip out on UC4. You can get it most places for under $30 now...

How is the font size on the Xbox? I'm worried that this might be like Wasteland 2 on the PS4 which required me to sit 3 feet away from the TV in order to read the text...

In a longer game, the flaws in these systems might be more apparent. But Torment: Tides of Numenera, at 20 hours, is surprisingly short.

A bit strange that the length in this review is so much different than in the IGN review; I believe that said it took 35 hours and could be much longer if they had done the side-quests.

And, so far, there's one game that requires a memory chip.

True, but won't you need a chip if you want to have more than one game on the system at a time?

I got this yesterday and played for a bit. I still don't know half of what is going on, but seems decent so far. The small maps certainly do limit the strategy and so far the game has been pretty easy. I haven't tried the Duel aspect yet, so I didn't really understand the limited instructions about it. Is that a multiplayer thing?

I'm a bit confused.
Spoiler for Hiden:
The mass killing (of both the hosts and the humans at the end) wasn't meant to be the suffering that causes self-awareness, as far as I remember. It was meant to either shut down the park (when Arnold programmed it) or rid the park of humans (when Ford programmed it). The suffering/self-awareness has come independently apart from those events, and only to a few of the hosts.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Killing everyone wasn't what made them become aware, suffering is what makes them become aware. As far as I can tell, the only arguably self-aware hosts by the end of the season were Delores and Maeve. And I say arguably because it still seems to me that at least Delores may have just been programed by Ford to start killing everyone. Same with the other hosts that invaded the town at the end. The decision by Maeve to leave the train seems to be her first independent idea contrary to her programing.

Oooh - didn't realize XCOM 2 was coming out for the consoles. Must consider....
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Uncharted 4 on: May 06, 2016, 01:34:53 PM
I didn't think the first Uncharted game was very good, but I played it a few years after it had come out. Its been awhile, but I remember it being fairly repetitive and didn't like some of the forced action (e.g. "I just discovered a secret entrance into this tomb that no one has found for thousands of years! Yet somehow it is already filled with mercenaries....").

The 2nd game was great, though. Hopefully this new game will be more like Uncharted 2 and less like Uncharted 1.

I won a trivia contest from a local radio show; I had to drive 45 minutes for my prize which ended up being a box full of crap (not literally).

So i guess the answer to your question is "No".

Spoiler for Hiden:
That certainly seems to be what they're hinting at, since he spelled out "JAY" and it looked like blonde hair sticking out under the mask.  I'm guessing that means fake Jay is actually Hunter Zolomon, and what he showed Caitlin was a hologram or something to make her stop looking for Earth One Jay.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Or he found his own doppelganger and said that was Earth One Jay. I can't remember; didn't his doppelganger have a different name?

I haven't seen it, but all the reviews I've read have indicated that it is extremely violent. The NPR review compared the violence level to Kill Bill, if that tells you anything.

I haven't been too impressed with the PSN games for the PS4. I subscribed to PSN in August and since then I'm not sure that there has been any game that I've played more than an hour or two. I've been a bit jealous of the games Xbox Live subscribers have been getting...

I haven't played Fallout 4, but it seems that encumbrance may be a bigger deal in that game due to the scavenging/town building gameplay. Of course, you'll still want to pick up somethings along the way but it never was a huge deal to me in Fallout: NV (as much as I can remember at least). Plus, it really adds value to Strength and certain perks that increase your carrying weight.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout: New Vegas - late to the party thread on: December 28, 2015, 02:58:38 PM
Your choices definitely become harder and more nuanced. I think (?) I played on hardcore mode (survival mode?) where water was important and ammunition had weight, among other things. I think that really added to the game but certainly makes it more challenging.
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GOTY 2015 on: December 21, 2015, 06:57:25 PM
Witcher 3 was easily the best game I played this year.

I also really liked Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition (PS4).

I'm guessing their hope is that you spend money for in-game cash, so that you don't have to repeat everything. I'm only in Season 3 but things are definitely ramping up in difficulty.
27  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: November 02, 2015, 06:23:35 PM
I've been playing Score Hero as well. Pretty fun game, although I have the same nitpicks as you guys. My only other nitpick is that as far as I can tell, the game doesn't tell you what the 3 goals for each match are (i.e. how you earn stars) until after you've completed that node. It can be a bit frustrating getting through a tough node only to get 1 star because I didn't shoot to the top of the goal or make 4 passes...

I'm having a blast with Wasteland 2 Directors Cut on PS4. After a few hours I finally have the game down. I'm amazed that they ported such an old-school game to PS4 and it's this well done. I'd say I'm 10 hours in and things are really starting to get interesting.

Any issues with the text size? It has looked small in a few screenshots.

Maybe Rebel Galaxy for the PS4, although my hope is that it becomes a PS+ free game in November...

Zombie fiction isn't really my thing, but I really like The Passage by Justin Cronin. I haven't read his follow-up book yet, though.

I have no idea what Extreme Exorcism is, but with a title like that it's got to be great!

35  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: PS4 Rocket League night? on: August 19, 2015, 01:37:29 PM
Is Rocket League free? I've heard great things but wasn't sure I wanted to pay for something that I probably wouldn't have time to play much (plus, any time I turn on the PS4 my hands won't let me turn anything on other than the Witcher).
36  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Dead of Winter on: August 04, 2015, 06:55:41 PM
I picked this up about 2 months ago and have played it 4 times (I think). I really like it but man is it a hard game to win. In all four games, only one player ever completed all their objectives and that was in the first game when we pretty badly messed some of the rules. In every other game, no one has won.

I also just got Battlestar Galactica (on sale at B&N for $12!); clearly Dead of Winter took a lot of their mechanics from BSG. I've only played one game so far (again messing up some of the rules) and it was fun, but I think I got the most out of it since I was the only player who had seen the show.

The trick to not wasting times at a loading screen? Don't die.  headbang

I have noticed that since the last patch, the game seems to load a bit more than it used to. Not necessarily at the loading screens, but when starting or stopping conversations (which used to be almost seamless). Resetting the PS4 seemed to help a bit, but it still happens more than it used to.
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Does Fallout New Vegas Build Upon Fallout 3? on: June 09, 2015, 01:32:04 PM
If you're only going to play one (and giving how long they are, that's probably not unlikely), I would go with New Vegas. It builds upon pretty much every aspect of Fallout 3, getting rid of some annoying aspects (a lot of the scaling issues, for instance) and has a better story with better choices.

Quote from: rittchard on May 21, 2015, 04:58:52 PM

Winter has been coming for five seasons lol, just how long does it take to come?

If I remember the book correctly, "winter" isn't a something that lasts 1/4 of a year but may last many years. Similarly, their "summer" may last multiple years (I think they referenced at some point that the current summer was the longest they can remember - maybe 10/15 years? - meaning that they expect a long winter as well). So when they say "winter is coming" they don't necessarily mean it's coming in a few months.
