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.

Ok, it's sounding like a firmware issue. I'll just hold tight, then.

The would suck to do that song and dance and still have the issues after all of that effort.

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

DmC is very much worth playing.

Definitely. One of the best games of the year, by far.

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).

Don't Starve is cool, I guess. Even though it's regularly on sale on Steam for $2-3.

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.

Maybe we should start a new thread for Season 2?  This thread was about the first season, and we're getting into unmarked spoiler territory.

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.

Angry Joe's piece on the show is a good watch, I think he nails it on the head and makes good suggestions on repairing the show:

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.
95  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tomb Raider on: December 09, 2013, 06:08:17 AM
I like how during VGX they didn't mention the PC version at all. Let's pretend we don't already have a better looking version of the game out there!
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: December 07, 2013, 06:28:11 PM
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?
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: December 03, 2013, 06:42:00 AM
Where are the PS4 games? Throw us some ports, at least.

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...
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thanksgiving Weekend Playlist - What are you playing? on: November 28, 2013, 06:47:38 PM
I'll be working my way through Assassin's Creed 4 on the PS4 with a touch of Resogun (PS4) and Diablo 3 (PC) for good measure!
103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/XB1/PS3/PS4/Wii U/PC]Assassin's Creed IV:Black Flag on: November 25, 2013, 10:48:57 PM
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
104  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.
107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 21, 2013, 08:21:58 PM
I look forward to seeing how Sony handles pre-orders of digital games. You know, pre-loading and all that.

Also, can we access our digital libraries on a non-primary PS4?

Where's the PS4 code??  crybaby

So how does it work playing your digital games on other people's PS4s? Because I'm hoping to go all digital with this platform.

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.

I'm a little confused by that because its showing me my full name even though I told it not to.

From what I've read, nobody else can see your real name unless the both of you have manually accepted a request for this from each other.

This is what I experienced firsthand today.

114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 13, 2013, 06:53:23 AM
It looks like the Xbox One version is the superior console version. From the Polygon review:

The Xbox One release's framerate was far more noticeable. As mentioned in the initial review, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from consistent framerate drops on the PS4, especially during multiplayer when action got especially hectic. The Xbox One version suffered no such drops, maintaining a steady 60 frames per second throughout.

That must make Xbox One owners happy.

116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Ryse on: November 09, 2013, 07:22:56 PM
Even if the game ends up having shallow gameplay, which was my concern while playing it at E3, it's absolutely gorgeous and an excellent game to showcase what next-gen consoles are capable of visually and aurally.

I'm not sure they could have chosen a better time to launch this game in 2 weeks.

Seriously... I wonder what the pre-order numbers look like. I think after the dust settles from the PS4 and XB1 launches we'll see a lot more attention paid to this game, assuming it's as amazing as the videos make it out to be.
118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [wii u] Super Mario 3d World on: November 09, 2013, 07:08:45 PM
I think I know what Turtle is talking about. The textures of these games look more solid somehow, which is a good thing.
119  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 6 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 09, 2013, 06:50:47 PM
I want an Xbox One during the launch window but I know I'll want a PS4 for the long run, I'm not willing to have both. Not wanting both isn't even a money thing, I just don't want that many consoles in my living room as I'll eventually succumb to the Wii U as well. I loved Ryse at E3 and it would serve well as my first next-gen console experience. Dead Rising 3 looks like a blast and the amount of zombies on-screen at any given time is crazy. And then there's Crimson Dragon, spiritual successor to Panzer, which I also played at E3 and enjoyed. I only have the PS4 pre-ordered, though, and there's not a single exclusive launch window title I'm interested in. I know the exclusives will come soon enough from Sony's stable of studios, but they aren't here yet...
120  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Breaking bad as good/bad as usual! on: November 08, 2013, 08:32:34 AM
I really didn't like that they decided to brutally torture Jessie before ending the series. I mean, the guy has taken a beating throughout the show, but never outright tortured (physically and mentally - his beatings and the murdering of his ex in front of him). AND enslaved. I thought that was a pretty classless route to go with a character we care for. It really sours my feelings on the entire show because it didn't need to happen, it didn't add any additional gravity to the already dire situation. It was fan service in the worst way, as far as I'm concerned.

I also didn't care for the ending aside from the fact that it tied things up. I suppose Walter and Jessie felt even, since Jessie was responsible for Hank being killed and Walter for him being tortured and his ex-girlfriend being murdered. So there was no reason for either one to kill the other.

Ah well. Brilliant show but like most shows of its caliber, the last few seasons fell off. Actually... it was mainly part one of the final season that disappointed, part two was bad finally being broken.
