Personally, I think he was just having some fun to brighten up a boring Wednesday where Superoffice was down, but who can tell these days!

That doesnt preclude any of the aforementioned options, though ;-)

I prefer a slower game than COD and this does look just as fast,.

Getting old? ;-)

Honestly, what little I've seen of this game tells me its directed mainly at the COD group, which is fine, but not for me. For some reason, I thought the game was something else, i.e. a slower more tactical experience since it featured Titans, but I can  see I was wrong. I guess I should have known, based on who the developers are, though.

I saw this last night at a friends house, and it looked absolutely gorgeous! Such a great design, awesome voiceovers and impressively done drawings, all getting together a mood I haven't seen in a game in a long time.

The only thing I'm not sold on is the combat, but then again, I didn't try it myself, so who knows. All in all, I'd say this is really worth getting from what little I've seen.

I consider "No Free to Play (F2P) elements" a bullet point in the pro's column. Hell, that's a selling feature in and of itself and should be plastered on the front of the box.

"All required parts contained within" would be an alternative slogan. Tongue

Thats actually pretty damn good! I just doubt any MMO's will go for it these days. I'm pretty sure ESO will featuer an in-game shop of sorts as well.

The highlight of the captains is listening to all the incoherent answers the completely baked Avery Brooks gives to all of the questions (many of which he sings). And by the way you should watch DS9 if you haven't, since it is by far the best Star Trek series...

I've actually started watching them after watching this documentary :-)

And yeah. Avery Brooks is totally bonkers...In an interesting way, actually.

I felt like I was playing a TES game with the occasionally poorly-named NPC running by every once in a while.   I think I'm in on this one - it felt much better this go around, and it was far more stable to boot.  My biggest complaint was the interface for crafting as it's not just unintuitive but counter-intuitive.   They have time to fix that though, and hopefully some of my feedback helps. 

On the subscription front, I don't bat an eye at 15 a month when there is this much content.  The Free to Play model seems to attract the absolute WORST players, and I'd rather avoid them altogether. 

On the "why isn't the client free" side of things, I wouldn't expect them to give away years of programming time.  If you believe what they've done is worthwhile, you pony up to experience it, otherwise we are back to that f2p model.  Free to Play has become nuisance-ware.  Want a bank slot?  Money.  Want to be able to have more than pocket change?  Money?  And the worst of them - want to rearrange your interface in SWTOR?  Money.  I'd rather pay a subscription so the devs can create more content than have them nag me for nickels and dimes until I quit out of frustration.  Am I alone on this?

You are not alone in this in any way. I'm sick and tired of the F2P model, and thats what I hear from a lot of people. The thing is, we may be the minority in this case - the oldschool gamers with money to spend. LOL is currently one of the game with the biggest income, and judging by anecdotal evidence, its a younger persons game where kids from my daugthers school play it and get their parent to spend money on it as well.

Subscription based games with a high entry fee are harder to justify to parents, so the question probably is - Are there enough oldschool gamers interested in these games to sustain them?
94  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: January 14, 2014, 09:29:43 AM
I watched Shatners "The Captains" a documentary about the various actors that have played Starship captains in the various Star Trek movies / shows. It features Shatner of course, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula and Chris Pine, as well as numerous others who were in some of the shows or movies.

To be honest, I was groaning at the opening and Shatner saying this was a journey of discovery for both the viewers, and him. I was also groaning when he first interviewed Patrick Stewart, and Stewart got to say 2 lines, where Shatner then talked for several minutes about himself. This is something that goes on in every single Interview, and seeing as Shatner is executive producer, it only reinforces my view of him as something of a egocentric personality.
Shatner talks in that wierd clipped way that Mr Lipton does in that Actors Chair show, and it seemed like acting by Shatner, unfortunately.

Despite that, I actually really liked the documentary, but thats despite the man, not because of him. The other captains are genuinly interesting people. I've always liked Patrick Stewart, but the documentary managed to make me interested in the other actors as well, despite me not having seen any of the newer shows. Even Chris Pine seems like a real human being, and honestly, Shatners outburst is probably spot-on "You are me, 50 years ago!". To me, Shatner was a force of personality back in the day, and Chris Pine has the same self-confidence that comes with being young and successful that some find grating.

Nearing the end of the documentary, it occurred to me that it was actually pretty good watching this, and it told me a lot not only about the other Captains, but a lot about Mr. Shatner as well, and his fear of being forgotten which shines through quite well.

All in all, I can only recommend this if you have any interest in Star Trek or actors.

There is a series as well, where he goes a bit more in depth with the various actors, but all in all, I find the movie a lot better.

I managed to get a bit of time in on ESO.  While Im still not blown away, it does seem better than the last beta.  It took me forever to download the client this time and I didnt get a lot of play time in but I still dont think this game is anywhere near worth a subscription fee. If thats the route they are going I expect it to fail and do as pretty much every other recent MMO and go FTP. 
 Part of the problem with these short betas is that you dont get much of a chance to play a developed character.  Playing a low level toon doesnt give you much of a feel for the game or its capabilities. Now I understand this is a beta and not a sales demo but these days betas are made to help sell the game, so I hope they run a more extended beta soon, where you have some time to play a bit deeper of a character. 

Its not even a Beta, its a STRESS beta, meaning the object of the exercise is to crash the servers.

Also, be careful since the NDA is still very much in place.

I didn't come here until after the great OOutage in 2008, where I registered back in 2005 I think. I discovered Gone Gold and was there briefly until it disappeared, and randomly fell over OO one day which stated it was a refuge of GG.

100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/Windows 8] Project Spark on: January 10, 2014, 02:38:01 PM
Well, its not that awesome a thing, actually, especially since you have to purchase various theme packs for real money if you want to try out others creations most of the time, or make your own creations without a ton of restrictions. Its based on a fremium model which is frankly not very fun to work with.

I do believe SOE's LAndmark will be much better and is a lot more freeform creation than Project Spark.

Quote from: Crawley on January 06, 2014, 07:37:58 PM

Watched a few things of note of recent:

Warrior: Two brothers prepping for a UFC style completion. Did not expect this one to be as good as it was. The build up to and through the event is pretty incredible.

Jack Reacher: The trailers for this film made it seem like a completely different flick than it was. I thought it was going to be this light hearted action flick but it was a bit dark and took itself more seriously than I was expecting. Actually the trailer scene where Jack gets out of his moving car, walks over to a bunch of people waiting for a bus, and then they hide him from the cops was so out of place in the film it made it seem like they filmed it just for the trailer.

Now the film is not an out of the park. There was no chemistry with the leading lady. And the reveal was pretty unbelievable. But it was a lot better than I was expecting. Wouldn't mind seeing another Jack Reacher film if they made one.

The West Wing: Never caught this when it was on regular TV. Did not care so much for the first three episodes but episode four and on were pretty fantastic. Over the Christmas/News Year break I was doing some major binging. And damn that ending to S1 I can't imagine how shocking that was and how bad it was to wait for the next season to start. I may have made it a whole 20 seconds before having to start up the S2 opener.

Season 2 isn't quite as good as the first season so far. And they seem to kinda just start a plot line then forget about it. Like Sam and the call girl. And the Moira Kelly character from S1, who was terrible BTW, was just dropped in to oblivion apparently. She's not on the show at all and there was no mention of why she is gone. Not that I mind for that particular character.

But still pretty good overall. 5 more seasons to go.

Warrior is very good! I was extremely surprised as well but its pretty great actors, and Nick Nolte either won or got nominated for an oscar as far as I can remember for this role. Much recommended!

The first Aliens Vs Predator game was pretty fun as well - Both the campaign but also the multiplayer, which was seriously ahead of its time, with its tilted scales.

Here in Denmark we read and see news about the severe winter in the states. I feel for you guys - it sounds horrible! Stories about exposed flesh causing freezing damages almost instantly and the like are rather crazy.

As a counterpoint, here in Denmark we normally have about 23 fahrenheit to 14 fahrenheit, and we currently have 48 degrees, which is crazy. Its causing flowers to start blooming, and the harvest may have issues as well.

Oh - and the above IS fahrenheit even though its a silly system. 0 degrees should be freezing point ;-)

Anyways - I hope you all are okay and eh..stay frosty in the horrible weather!
