82  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Rumored] Microsoft's E3 Plans Revealed? Killer Lineup (if you like Halo) on: May 09, 2014, 11:24:28 PM
Sunset Overdrive and Quantum break need to come to PC... I'm not buying an XB1 just for those two games. The rest of the list is depressing; Halo without Bungie, Gears without Cliff, Fable without Molyneux...
83  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Sunset Overdrive (Insomniac's latest) on: May 08, 2014, 05:08:06 PM
There's a cool article at Polygon where they talk with the developers about how they applied what their learned from Fuse and applied it to Sunset Overdrive.

The game looks fantastic, a shame it's Xbox One exclusive.

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.
85  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Rumored] Sony's E3 plans revealed? Killer lineup if it's true on: May 08, 2014, 04:44:16 PM
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).



86  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.
88  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Kickstarter] Outcast HD Reboot on: May 05, 2014, 11:11:50 PM
I didn't play the original but I was aware of it, I remember thinking it looked cool but boring to play.

I watched the video for this reboot and felt the same way, so I didn't back it.
89  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.

I've heard that switching my router from 802.11 N to 802.11 G might help significantly, I haven't actually tried it yet.

I wish we had the ability to customize the home screen though, so I can put my most used apps front and center.

1.70 is now available, and the hunt for hidden changes begins. People are reporting vastly improved response times in the UI, and particularly in the PS Store.

Pre-loading games is big, so is being able to control the brightness on the controller LED. I don't care about all the new steaming and video recording stuff... what portion of PS4 users does that even affect, less than 5%?
93  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: When do you buy games? on: April 30, 2014, 06:20:02 PM
I rarely buy games on day 1 anymore, mainly because there aren't many games that excite me these days. I would say I tend to grab them 3-4 weeks after release.

Rumor has it that they are working on a dramatic take on their original character- Crash Bandicoot.

Is this for real?

It's a real rumor, yes.

I loved the PSX games so I'm up for a new one.

I've been dipping into my backlog lately too since a lot of the games coming out this year just aren't very interesting. I'm working on Alan Wake right now, Darksiders II might be a good to start on afterwards.

Yippiee!  Great game and I am sure it will be great fun to play again!

Coming to PS3 frown

Suikoden II was one of the few JRPGs I ever finished.

Way, way too early in the generation to start predicting winners and losers, anyhow.

We don't have a complete picture until we get the 360 data. Why would Titanfall create a substantial demand for XB1s with a comparable 360 version around the corner? It doesn't make sense to me.
101  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: April 18, 2014, 08:05:09 PM
It'll probably sell better on the 360 than the XB1, plus it was made by a smaller staff than a lot of AAA teams (like Infinity Ward or Irrational) so it shouldn't need to sell as much to make its money back.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: April 18, 2014, 05:49:01 PM
Typing "Wii U internet connection" in a search engine brings up a lot of results so I know it's not a completely isolated situation.

What's a good alternative security setting for routers aside from WPA+WPA2?
103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: April 18, 2014, 04:57:23 PM
I received the system from Amazon last night and bought Super Mario 3D World from GameStop. Getting it to connect to my wifi was a huge hurdle, and the lack of an ethernet port is an outright dumb omission. After looking for help online I found that I had to manually configure the wifi connection which completely undermines Nintendo's philosophy of making their platform and games approachable for everyone. Not only that, but the network card is apparently a piece of shit because I have to have the Wii U in the same room as the router in order to hold a connection. So... online is a no-go with this machine for me.

I didn't have much time to play Mario after fucking around with the wifi settings and waiting for the system to update, but so far I'm really disappointed in the hardware.

I probably just need to give the Gamepad more time, I've only spent a little bit of time with it and I thought it felt awkward. I'll still want a Pro controller for my fiance, the wiimotes are pretty terrible.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii U on: April 15, 2014, 11:52:14 PM
It was hard to resist a Wii U after Super Mario 3D World released, but Mario Kart 8 looks so absolutely cool that I caved in and ordered one. I'm not a fan of the Gamepad, does the Pro controller serve most games well? In particular, 3D World and DK Jungle Freeze?

107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: April 11, 2014, 03:46:25 PM
It's great that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and The Last of Us are the first current-gen re-releases, they're setting the bar high and it's what people are going to expect from other games as well.

Did we see late-gen games get remastered/re-released so quickly on the PS3 and 360? I'm trying to think of any games but nothing is coming immediately to mind.

yup, the image is displayed on the web store right now.  although, given the link is broken, I'd say either of two things will happen.  they'll pull the image from the banner rotation until it's been properly announced, or the link will actually go live later today.

I wonder if they are waiting for PAX East to announce?

Maybe. I'm hoping we get to see some in-game footage as well.

I ended up really liking the movie, everything about it was better than the first one in my opinion. I didn't like Falcon though, I thought he was pretty lame except for some of the aerial gunplay. And then the leap into the helicopter? Ugh.

Google and Facebook make their money by selling our data, I know that. But what about Microsoft? Aside from the alleged Kinect stuff, is Microsoft selling the data they collect when using their services like Bing and Hotmail, or just using it internally?

I tried searching around for this but couldn't find any credible sources.

Which means that my $400 machine runs a game that looks better than your $700-$1500 machine.

Which isn't to put down sleeping dogs, but there's also a lot of subtle differences as well.

The incidental objects in the next gen games are more varied and common. There's more building styles and textures for them. Infamous also has a bigger vertical aspect.

There's less real-time reflections going on the past gen game as well.

In the end, if you're making an open world game set in a city, eventually you're going to get a lot of parallels since there's only so many extra effects you can throw in.

Keep in mind that Sleeping Dogs came out almost two years ago. I'm not that impressed with Second Son's graphics from a raw technical perspective, which is fine because I don't go to consoles (PS4 and XBO included) for high-end graphics, but I am hoping for advances in other areas such as animation, AI, gameplay, etc. If all it ends up being is a better looking version of the previous games, I don't think it deserves being labeled a definitive next-gen experience. We should hold our standards higher than that.

What game would you say is your current standard bearer for next gen then?

Are graphics your only metric for measuring advancements in a video game? New generations are marked by the likes of the Mario 64s and GTA3s, not by a game like Second Son which is just a graphical upgrade to last generation's game.

That's the way I see it, at least. I would have stopped gaming a long time ago if all there was to look forward to was improved graphics.

I don't understand the new difficulty levels. The game scales with the level of your character now, but you can still choose Normal, Expert, etc. I tried playing in Expert because my character was in Nightmare before, but the enemies were much too difficult. So why does the game scale yet let you choose a difficulty?

Nintendo is selling the Wii U deluxe for $200 on their website. I'm still not biting until they put out a good Zelda and/or Metroid.

It's refurbished, before anyone gets they're hopes too high.

I keep going back and forth on the Wii U. I want to player Super Mario 3D World, but I can't shake this feeling that Nintendo is going to abandon the system and move all current projects onto the next console.
