I didn't think the gun sounds were too low, but the old guy whose always yapping at me over the radio is hard to hear when there's action going on, I usually rely on subtitles.

I'm really, really digging the game so far. I'm still extremely early in the campaign, but I came across the first collectible letter and was delighted at how well-written and interesting it was. The story of the soldier in Africa being ambushed was riveting. I hope the letters maintain that level of quality, I'll be searching every nook and cranny for them.

When I first heard about Evolve I didn't think much of it, but watching the new trailers that have come out this week has piqued my interest considerably. It looks like a really fun, polished multiplayer experience. I love the graphics, too.

I played a bit more last night... which still doesn't amount to more than an hour of total time played. I had fun dual wielding two automatic rifles, and those robot dogs are creepy...

That sentiment holds up regardless of which machine you own. If you own an XB1, why buy a PS4 or PC? If you own a PS4, why bother with a PC or XB1? I think it's a good problem to have... the fact that there's not much of a content delta between each platform.

Of course, that all goes out the window if your primary focus is F2P or obscure indie titles. Then you should probably stick to a low/mid spec PC.
One console is roughly as good as the other but PC games offer better graphics, performance, customization and are cheaper 99% of the time.  That said, I do miss the days of good console exclusives.  It made things much more interesting and helped drive the industry.

That's assuming every PC owner has a PC that's powerful enough to output better graphics than a PS4 or XB1 version. I would look somewhere between the minimum and recommended specs of a Valve game, because they unquestionably have more user hardware data than any other game company, and assume that's the range most PC gamers exist in. Going off that, I would say that for most people the PS4 and XB1 offer comparable if not better graphics than what their PC can produce.

I agree, though. It was fun debating Mario Vs. Sonic, Final Fantasy Vs. Zelda, etc.

wished I remember where I read it, but I heard it was short.

I wish you'd remember that too, because that's complete bullshit. The game is long. It's estimated that a normal playthrough would take 15-20 hours, but it looks like mine will take more than that. This is an extremely long campaign for an FPS.

I'm curious, how does the length compare to Riddick and The Darkness's campaigns?

I just started playing this on my iPad Air last week and am truly loving the game. Although, sometimes I feel like winning has more to do with how good your cards are and luck of the draw more than strategy. But that's probably a common newbie perspective.

Does your hero's level decrease over time? I got my priest to level 10, which didn't take that long. I haven't played in a couple days, should I expect him to have dipped a little?

Hero level never decreases. Only rank increases and decreases (but not below level 20 each season if you pass it) when you play ranked mode.

I agree with Wonderpug, this game is definitely not pay to win. 

When it comes to spending your hard earned gold, I recommend playing in the Arena.  You're guaranteed a pack, get great experience with different classes and cards, and will likely get some dust or something else at least.   

Additionally, I'm all for playing whatever class you enjoy the most, but thought you would like to know that the Priest is currently at the bottom when it comes to winning percentage in constructed ranked games.  Plenty have played Priest all the way to Legend, but since you're new I thought you would like to know you're playing the weakest class. 


In that case I should continue playing the Priest. If Hearthstone is anything like WoW, the weakest class gets a boost at some point and becomes overpowered for a while smile

Who keeps complaining that the PS4 needs games? I already have a freaking backlog. The Show, Child of Light, and now Transistor and Wolfenstein, since both are getting good reviews.

I seriously don't get it either. It's like people don't remember other launch windows...
Those are multiplatform games.  People who complain about the lack of games are usually people who already have a powerful PC and have no reason to buy either console right now.  As a predominantly PC gamer I see no reason to buy a PS4 now, or unless e3 amazes, anytime in the near future.

I know allowing us to connect an external storage drive is a great option, but it's one that I probably won't ever exercise. I'm simply not willing to have an extra drive hanging off the console.

Tilt, how's the framerate on PS4 - Solid 30?

It's 60, and I havent noticed any hiccups so far.

That's good, makes up for the low res textures. Or whatever it is that's making the game look so last-gen.

I booted the game this morning and it appeared that the download/install process completed over night. Or at least there's more content then there was before. I don't mind dealing with the growing pains of this process with Sony, I'll never buy a physical copy of a game again.
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/neXtBox/360/Ps3/Ps4] Wolfenstein:The New Order on: May 21, 2014, 06:22:10 AM
I played through the intro segment... or at least part of it. And then the game said it ran out of content and that I need to wait for it to install (this was a digital purchase, obviously). There was nothing in the dashboard that indicated the game was still in the process of installing, but there's no way for me to continue playing right now. Whatever it's doing I hope it's done tomorrow night when I try play again.

Seems to me that this game is getting some good reviews.  Most unexpected.

Agreed!  I had pretty much dismissed the game entirely but the reviews so far are making me interested.

The Metacritic isn't very high, around 78-79, but reading Ron's review and also watching the Polygon video review makes me want the game. I'm intrigued by the story, characters, and setting, moreso than the gameplay. Not that the gameplay looks bad or anything, but it's a first-person shooter which is nothing to get excited about.

I just hate it when singleplayer games require participating in multiplayer (and doing a lot of it too) in order to get the platinum trophy. Who the hell thinks that's a good idea?

Agree with this completely.


Sent from my mobile device
After slogging through Uncharted Vita just for one, I asked myself if it was worth the hassle.

When achievements first came around in Xbox games, I think I tried hunting for a few and ended up asking myself that very question. And the answer, for me, was that it was not worth the hassle. I'm not just talking about MP or cross-platform achievements like with Uncharted Vita, I'm talking in general. Since that initial effort, I've never gotten an achievement/trophy outside of playing the game normally.

It might warrant a separate thread, I'm really curious to hear how you all feel about a game that you hunt down achievements in vs. just playing it straight through.

It's important to keep in mind that the Xbox One has sold 76% more units than the Xbox 360 did in its first 6 months, which means it's sold about 5.6m units compared to the 360's 3.2m in the same time span

They've not sold 5.6 million to customers.  They've shipped that many to retailers.  MS really did a great job confusing  people with that 5M number they put out there when Sony announced selling 7M to actual customers.

Either way the point is the same, MS is doing much better this generation (so far), purely from a sales standpoint. I'm not sure what the profit margins are on the One Vs the 360, though.

I'm willing to bet that had the price points been swapped, if the PS4 was $500 and the One was $400, it would be the One with 7m sold and PS4 with 5m shipped. Now that they're more evenly priced, it can be a battle more focused on who has the best content.

Also, 8 of the top 10 best-selling console games in April were on a MS console, according to NPD (see the source I linked earlier). Of course, NPD doesn't track digital so there may be more Sony games in that list then they are reporting, but it still gives you directional results.

Microsoft isn't doing bad, they just aren't doing as well as Sony. And despite all the drama surrounding the Kinect announcement, MS's trailing hardware sales has to do with costing $100 more than the PS4. If anything, the lesson for them isn't that they shouldn't have tried to integrate the Kinect with the Xbox One, it's that they should have figured out how to price their product more competitively.

I think we all should be more upset about the lack of quality games..  On both platforms.

Sequel sequel sequel...

In the 1st 6 months of this console gen I've been kept busy with The Show, Need for Speed, Infamous, Lego Marvel, AC4, Fifa 14, Killzone, CD Ghosts, Child of Light, Outlast, and BF4. That's a lot of good games, especially considering that history shows us that the first 6 months is usually a total drought. So I don't really get all the talk about there not being any good games. If I had an Xbox180 then I would add Dead Rising and Forza to the list.

I agree, I'm not on the "there's no games" boat. If there's no games it has less to do with the platform and more to do with the global content pipeline.

Heh, just checking back here for the first time since I posted. Didn't realize my choice of words would cause such a discussion. To clarify I didn't mean I was forced to use the product if I bought it, I meant that in order to purchase an Xbox one I had to support MS's Kinect business strategy, which I had no interest in at all. I wanted a new Xbox but didn't want to support the direction they were taking because Kinect was bundled in, thus "forcing it upon me" (maybe "down my throat" was too melodramatic). Consumers like me voted with their dollars and MS is making a change because of it. I consider it a win.

I bolded the key point that people who were debating Tilt were missing. That's how I understood your decision to not purchase a Kinect, even inadvertently as part of a discounted bundle package. You were signaling to Microsoft that not purchasing an XB1 was less about price and more about not supporting their Kinect strategy. I can dig that.

Also, like Tilt, I don't give a fuck about Halo, Forza, Gears of War, or Fable. Especially now that they aren't even being developed by the original teams. If Microsoft wants me to buy an XB1, I need an honest-to-God exclusive killer app (or two). Titanfall was a wet dream, not a Mario 64 or Final Fantasy 7 caliber system seller.

I looked at the full list (but admittedly overlooked The Order). Some of my lack of hype is probably just lack of familiarity with some of those IPs/developers.

It's actually not the sequels, like Uncharted and God of War, that have me excited, but rather the original stuff we haven't seen yet.

I'm not sure why The Last Guardian being listed for PS4 sounds bogus to anyone, the platform was never announced. Here's what Sony said two months ago:

... “not going to announce what platform it’s coming on, who’s working on it, who’s involved. But that is still a title that’s absolutely in the mix at Worldwide Studios. That’s the most you’re gonna get.”

"I love that people are still interested in it. That’s an honor to us. That’s not just me spinning… It’s really cool that people are still interested in it, and we’re trying to make the best thing we can out of The Last Guardian.”

That's a quote from Scott Rhode at Sony (Source).



156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Rumored] Sony's E3 plans revealed? Killer lineup if it's true on: May 08, 2014, 12:16:47 AM
Uncharted 4
Gran Turismo 6
God of War 4
New Ninja Theory game (possibly Heavenly Sword 2)
The Last Guardian on PS4
PS Now presence
PS3 and Vita price drops

Source

The games I listed are Sony's first-party heavy-hitters, but there's a lot of other interesting stuff in the report. If it proves to be true, I'll be sad I had to miss this year's show.

Thanks to all this indie content, I already have a considerable backlog on my PS4 alone. I've got AAA launch games I've barely touched because I've had so much fun with smaller titles.

Same here. The free indie stuff I get via PS Plus has kept me from making impulse purchases of AAA titles due to forum effect and whatnot.

159  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: May 04, 2014, 04:04:45 PM
I can relate to YK's sentiment about small budget indie releases (I emphasize small budget because there are plenty of big budget games being released by indie developers like Gearbox). I used to feel the same but over time the ingenuity of the gameplay in the games won me over. Games like Dear Esther, Amnesia, Outlast,The Swapper, and Hotline Miami were some of my favorite games of recent.

Sony isn't trumpeting indie content as THE reason to own a PS4, they're just acknowledging the value it adds to it. I'm very happy with Sony's humble approach to indie developers.
