I've already vocalized my distaste for this game, but seeing it receive so many GOTY awards is making me feel remorseful and want to go back and give it a second try. Hopefully one day we'll get a "definitive" version of it on the PS4 so I might have that opportunity (already gave my PS3 away to my brother).

Weren't your complaints graphical or something?

It's easily a game of the generation candidate.

I did have an issue with the framerate in a specific section of the game, but mostly I disliked the combat and most of the gameplay mechanics.


So more or less you disliked just about everything? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that maybe it's not worth trying to get another copy of the game.

No, I enjoyed the narrative, characters, and dialogue, like most of you.

Combat did get repetitive, but it's worth playing through. I'd take one of the other's recommendations and play through on easy.

Good advice. Now to convince my brother to let me borrow the PS3 I gave him  Tongue

That's strange, I had no trouble feeling a connection with the characters without them speaking my language. Between the gibberish language and the gesticulating I knew what they were thinking and feeling. I suppose because I feel that most video games are so horrendously written I was happy to not have to worry about cliche dialogue and voice acting.
163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: No Man's Sky on: December 29, 2013, 06:30:22 PM
Since the game is procedurally generated, it could theoretically finish itself, no?
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons on: December 29, 2013, 06:29:00 PM
The game is only three hours long so I urge you guys to go back and finish. It started off really slow for me, but the last 2/3 of the game was much, much more interesting. Stick with it, there's more to the game than you think.
165  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Wireless Mouse Lag on: December 29, 2013, 07:28:16 AM
I'm experiencing some serious lag with my Microsoft Wireless Mouse 4000. I know it has to do with interference in the signal rather than a depleted battery because when I move the mouse only a matter of inches from my normal sitting position there's no lag. There's ONLY lag when the mouse is in a specific location, but I can't move because I'm dead centered with the TV and have no room to move forward or backward.

I've done a little bit of research and found that it could be a variety of causes - router channel (changed it, made no difference), TV signal, etc.

Any suggestions?
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons on: December 29, 2013, 07:07:00 AM
I searched and didn't find a thread for this already, so apologies if this is a duplicate since it's hard to believe we don't already have one already. This game is phenomenal, the way you control two characters at once is unlike anything I've experienced before and the graphics and imagery are incredible. I'm reminded a lot of ICO because of the gentle fashion in which you move about the world. It's a bit too slow paced for me, so if the game goes longer than 4-5 hours I'll probably grow bored. A few hours in though and I'm totally engrossed in it.

Something really cool that I discovered too - The language of the characters is gibberish, but there were multiple times when I could have sworn I was hearing Arabic (I speak it a little). I looked into it online and sure enough, one of the main designers is Arab and built Arabic into the gibberish. Here's an excerpt from an interview with the designer:

Actually, the language is inspired from my own language. I am originally from Lebanon, so I took my Arabic language just to get a base. Creating a gibberish language from the ground up is very hard. When you take a language that is there and you have all the accents – it feels right. I told the actors, “This is what you are saying,” and I wrote to them this and that and it sounds like a language. It wasn’t totally made up. It was made up in many senses, but it is also very inspired by my own language.

Pretty neat smile

I finally completed the main quest line. The story was lame, frankly, and I barreled through the last quarter of the game without care for the bonus objectives. Still, it's a gorgeous and excellently crafted experience. Do they usually patch these games up? I'm thinking of coming back in a few months to do more of the side stuff once some of the bugs are ironed out.

I'd probably buy a new console from Costco and return the messed up one at that point  icon_cool

Ugh. I'm pretty sure my f*&king console is defective. Half the time I don't get any sound after I boot up and it requires a reboot, and there have been multiple instances of the thing not connecting to the network. I also get these weird sound/video glitches during games. Anyone experience any of this?

One time I got no sound but a simple switch to tv and back to hdmi 2 fixed it. Just a receiver handshake quirk. No graphics or audio issues here like that. When did you get it?

It's a launch console. I've been hoping that the issues would be resolved in a firmware update but it hasn't happened yet and it's starting to become a major annoyance. I guess I'll contact Amazon first and then Sony, I hope I don't have to go weeks/months without it while they attempt to fix it.

I love exploring the world via side missions but at this point I'm trying to power through the campaign and wrap up the story. You can continue exploring and completing side missions after you finish the campaign, right? I assume that's standard for any AC game.

183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: VGX discussion on: December 09, 2013, 06:27:33 AM
This was the first year I bothered tuning in for this show, probably because they streamed it or made it clear that you could stream it. Who the hell watches scheduled TV anymore? So, good on them for that at least. The show truly was terrible but I don't want it to go away, I just want it to evolve. That's what was supposed to have happened this year but they goofed it up.

It's been YEARS since I've watched Joel McHale on The Soup but I recall him having some pep. Is he always this laid back and lethargic? He seemed completely uninterested in being on the show, there was zero energy. Even Geoff seemed off, not that that I watch him enough to know whether or not he's usually better than this.

Geoff made a comment during the show that lots of people were streaming it and it was trending on Twitter, so there's obviously an audience. The people who are bankrolling this need to fire some staff and bring in new blood to change the direction of this thing. I don't necessarily need exclusive reveals but more new footage of upcoming games and more segments with devs would be great.

Don't consoles always sell out completely between launch and Holidays (except perhaps the Wii U but we know that's likely due to confused marketing)? Are the high numbers here due to an increased demand or increased supply over previous consoles?

It was my intention to play a variety of games on the PS4 today, but I ended up getting sucked into AC4, leaving only half an hour each with Killzone, Lego Marvel and Flower early on. I keep having to stop and admire the crystal clear graphics. 1080p makes a huge difference to me. Amazingly, the last patch for AC4 seems to have pretty much eliminated most aliasing artifacts, which makes things like ropes look great in motion when they would have been a flickering mess at lower resolutions.

Looking forward to messing around some more with this thing tomorrow. It's been an extremely pleasant experience so far.

Yeah, AC 4 is gorgeous.

On another note, does anyone know how to turn the controller's light off? I'm about to take ducktape to it...

This game isn't just fun, it's a marvel in game design. I recognize it has flaws, but damned if I've not been in a state of awe during every moment that I've played it so far (I'm 25% done with the main sequence but I've been exploring and collecting a lot). The mechanics themselves haven't evolved much from the earlier games - running, climbing, and combat mostly feel the same. But the design of the world itself and how interactive it all is, the seafaring gameplay like sailing and ship battles, the quality of the voice acting, the motion capture, the dialogue, even the map, is all extremely well done.

Up until now I would read about how the AC games are made by giant teams collaborating across multiple studios and I wondered why it took so much manpower, but now I get it now. I'm pretty sure this is going to end up being my game of the year.

I need to add in two disclaimers:

I'm a huge fan of pirates and that setting and I'm also playing on my PS4 and a new TV, so I might be experiencing this game on a high smile
193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Ryse on: November 25, 2013, 05:09:46 AM
I think it will be worth purchasing at a discounted price and running through it, just to experience the sights an sounds. I was floored when I played it at E3, but I knew and even said as much to one of the developers that the gameplay seemed shallow.

I'm absolutely in love with this game, I haven't played an AC game since 2 so I'm mostly floored with the increase in scope.

HOWEVER, holy shit this game is buggy... at least the PS4 version. The audio is where I see the most bugs, but I run into a lot of graphical problems too like texture pop-in, warped physics, getting stuck in objects, etc. I hope the next patch irons these issues out because otherwise it's one of my favorite games of the year.

I haven't experienced any issues and have been impressed with PSN's performance. I downloaded Resogun, Blacklight, and a few apps quite quickly. I also played coop Resogun with voice chat and it was perfect. Very happy so far.
