161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Article about how the GiantBomb crew coped after Ryan's passing on: September 30, 2015, 09:02:01 PM

Quote from: EngineNo9 on September 30, 2015, 08:42:02 PM

Pretty good article.  Not a ton of new stuff that I didn't know at this point, but it's nice to see somebody take on that topic.

As weird as it is, I also think a lot of their turn around in attitude and output in recent times can be tied to Jeff meeting his significant other.  He drives a lot of what that site is, and there was a point where his constant negativity was really dragging it down (especially without Ryan to buoy it).  That has really changed in the last year or so, even without the new guys.

You're right, I think that factors into it but I also think Dan has some influence on it. He's like Jeff's polar opposite; as negative as Jeff can be, Dan can be just as positive.

I was wondering when a piece like this might come out and I'm glad it finally has. I had no idea how close GB was to folding folding because of Ryan's death and other events. I'm glad they made it, I continue to be a huge fan and half the reason I go to PAX Prime every year is to see these guys.

PS Plus Games for October:

Broken Age (PS4/PS Vita)
Super Meat Boy (PS4/PS Vita)
Unmechanical Extended (PS4/PS3)
Kickbeat (PS Vita/PS3)
Kung Fu Rabbit (PS Vita/PS3)
Chariot (PS3)

Link. Super Meat Boy seems an odd choice...

"Charisma" video.

Here's a story trailer. It doesn't show any gunplay, I don't think. Mostly just clips from cutscenes. Also seems darker than Advanced Warfare. 
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity Original Sin 2 on: September 30, 2015, 07:46:33 PM
Extremely excited for this, I think these guys understand how to do multiplayer RPGs correctly.

It looks like we're in for another big patch. This one will address PS4 performance issues, among other things.

If you're experiencing server issues, you're not alone.

Here's a preview of update 3.0 coming tomorrow.

Nadda. Replaying Halo 4 on XB1 at the moment in preparation for Halo 5.

If you haven't bought an Xbox One yet, this might be a good time. $399 bundle with 1TB hard drive and Rise of the Tomb Raider (Link)
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Hell froze over and Blizzard made a new IP] Overwatch on: September 28, 2015, 09:33:03 PM
Overwatch Will Have Custom Games, Dedicated Servers And A Spectator Mode, But No Private Servers (Link). Finally some more meaty details on the game. I'm super excited to get more hands-on at Blizzcon this year.

I'm not sure why the lack of private servers still makes headlines these days, it's just not common practice anymore.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Halo 5 on: September 28, 2015, 09:28:37 PM
Holy cow, we haven't said anything about Halo 5 on these forums since 2013??

Anyhow, this video has gotten me extremely excited for the new Warzone multiplayer mode.

I'm actually replaying through the Halo games via MCC and reading through the novels/comics in preparation for Halo 5. I went HAM on Halo lore...
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/Ps4] Soma on: September 28, 2015, 09:25:11 PM
Live-action limited web series will serve as a prequel to the game and flesh out the story more (Link).

PS4 WIRELESS STEREO HEADSET (GOLD) - $40 (after rebate)

I hate wating for mail in rebates but $40 is still $16 cheaper than a used set on Amazon so I bought one.

At $40 that headset is worth it, the original price not at all. I don't think they're very good quality.
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/Ps4] Soma on: September 22, 2015, 04:28:05 PM
I forfeited my $3 discount for the PC version when I discovered it's also on PS4. I'm going the big screen route for this experience!

More exciting than the positive review scores is what the reviews are saying about the game, it sounds like something much smarter than a typical horror game. I suppose we should have expected no less from the Amnesia team.

Holy shit, I'm terrible at this.  I'm already stuck on a mission and it's only level 6 (I've died about a dozen times and had to respawn at the start of the fight).  frown  The baddies just keep coming in waves and I can never seem to reload fast enough to take them all out. 

Seems fun enough, I'm just awful.

Are you playing alone? I find that the game is easier when you have at least one other person with you.

And speaking of playing alone, damn is this game boring to play alone.

So I hear the vanilla game is totally gimped now. That's unfortunate, I was going to dabble in the new systems and then maybe get the Taken King if I liked it, but now I think I will at least wait for a good sale.

As a new Destiny player, what is the "vanilla game"?
182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: September 16, 2015, 11:28:01 PM
Ubi has taken a different approach with Syndicate knowing there's a lot to prove after Unity. The QA team is way bigger, there's a lot more external play-testing happening and the feedback is being factored in, etc. I think you all will be pleasantly surprised =)
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 16, 2015, 04:25:22 PM
I started the game up last night and played for about an hour. So far I'm really impressed with the graphics (from a design/art perspective) and the overall presentation (UI, menus, etc), it feels like an epic game from Bungie. I'm looking forward to playing a lot more this week.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Assassin's Creed Syndicate on: September 15, 2015, 10:17:09 PM
Jack the Ripper DLC announced...

What do ya'll think?
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 14, 2015, 05:49:19 PM
I'll be playing this for the first time with the release of The Taken King tomorrow, thanks to the encouragement (peer pressure?) of a friend. I'm looking forward to it, though. I've always wanted to play Destiny, but I have enough experience with MMOs to know that it's better to give it a year before jumping in.

I went for the second year in a row... still need to get my impressions up on the front page but I was slammed with work and my brother's wedding stuff upon return. It's a fun show but you have to be able to stomach crowds because you'll be wading through them constantly, all day everyday except for when you're sitting down in a panel.
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360,PS3,XB1,PS4] MGS5: The Phantom Pain on: September 08, 2015, 04:48:33 PM
So are people here not playing this game or is there another thread? I need impressions, people!

I'm only on the fourth mission so far but my impressions are very positive. I think this might be the first stealth game I've ever played where the stealth is actually enjoyable. It's intriguing, really.
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: September 03, 2015, 09:52:49 PM
They were live-demoing this at PAX last weekend it looked really good. Very excited for what will be my first JRPG in years.

The prologue chapter was pretty nuts. I couldn't tell if it was a fever dream or actually happening (in the game, not me personally)...
191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Until Dawn on: August 27, 2015, 05:23:51 PM
My sister loves horror movies and when we were living under the same roof she would watch me play horror games once in a while. I invited her to come over and play through some of Until Dawn with me, seems like the perfect game for that.

PC version confirmed for November 19, about a month after the console versions.

It's definitely one of the best stories in video games, at least from what I've played. I even warmed up to the combat, eventually!

Man, this went from "no way" to "can't miss." I need another open world game like I need a hole in the head, and I haven't even played a Metal Gear game since the first one on NES, but it sounds soooooo good.

I finally got around to playing Ground Zeroes and was blown the fuck away. I couldn't believe how cinematic it was. Between that and the glowing reviews I have to play PP.

Is there an easy way to watch all the cutscenes from all the previous games?  I assume they're on youtube, but didn't know if you guys had a better way to find/view them.

You realize that would take many, many hours? There's a cutscene in one of the games that's over an hour long. There are some decent summaries of the story up until this point, I've watched/read a few of them and... still don't really get it aside from the really high level stuff.

Yep, here's a LINK to the patch notes. I'm excited to check out the new zone... it's pretty awesome that all of this additional content comes without a DLC pay gate.
