1  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).

I also won a contest here back in 2006, but never got my prize.  crybaby

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.
12  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.

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.
16  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.

24  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).
25  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.
28  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.

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.

Agreed.

And I recognize that the producers have a broad outline of how the story ends. That's part of what annoys me so much (at Martin) about the show this season.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Clearly, they can alter things that play directly towards the ending of the story, so certain plots are continuing mostly unchanged (Cersei, Jon, Tyrion, Arya), while others have seen major modifications that may or may not end up in the same place (Sam, Brienne, Danaerys), and others are just absurdly different (Sansa, Jamie), thus indicating that all of the tedious plotting in the books about those characters int he last two bloated volumes was *ENTIRELY* pointless.

I don't think that's necessarily the case at all. As far as I understand, the producers only have the broad outline, for example (speculative spoiler)
Spoiler for Hiden:
that Dany comes to Westeros and joins with Jon Snow to defeat the white walkers.
That doesn't mean that the other characters don't have important roles to play in the books to achieve that ending that will now likely differ greatly from the show. I of course don't know the details of what Martin told the producers, but I'm guessing he didn't lay out for them the story arch for every character.
31  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Game of Thrones - Season 4 is coming (please mark spoilers) on: May 20, 2015, 05:28:39 AM
There was also Dany and Drogo, which to modern sensibilities would definitely be considered rape (and is very similar to what happened with Sansa). But those are the only ones I can think of as well.

How did you use a Best Buy Gift card for a Steam Key... just wondering




I *think* you can buy Steam Card Keys at Best Buy?

I had been looking for this game for awhile but it's always seemingly in high demand and out-of-stock (unless I want to pay outrageous prices). I did find a great deal for it at B&N, but a few days after I ordered it I got the dreaded "order has been cancelled" notification.  disgust

And no experience for killing things after the first encounter seems odd.

I'm not sure that's the case. There's a certain amount of experience you can gain per monster type. Usually you don't gain all that experience in your first encounter unless you fight a large group of that monster type. For instance, I've killed a few trolls and still haven't earned all the possible troll experience.

Also, if you haven't, check out the beastary. As you kill more of each monster type you get more information about their stats (and weaknesses?). It's pretty cool.

I just tried watching the episode without much luck using Yahoo Screen. The first problems were minor (a bit of stuttering, an ad playing sound from the wrong ad, etc) but the show generally played ok. At least until I got to about the 9.5 minute mark. Then it just paused up. I tried refreshing a couple of times and exiting and restarting, but each time I got to around the same time and the show just locked up. Hopefully these kinks get worked out soon.
