1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: True Blood on: Today at 12:16:35 AM
To quote the Kurgan from Highlander, "It's better to burn out than to fade away."  True Blood faded away with one of the most boring series finale episodes I've ever seen.  It's like they just gave up and decided to go with the safe (boring) happy ending.  Bon Temps is a not a place for happy endings.  It's the equivalent of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer hellmouth for the supernatural.  The show was at its best when the writers went bonkers crazy and just had fun with it.  They should have gone out in a blaze of glory.

The writers seemed to have lost touch with their characters too, especially Bill and Sookie.  Their last scene just didn't work.  Definitely a disappointing way to end the series.

Being able to play Xenoblade Chronicles on a handheld is almost worth it by itself.  I just bought my first 3DS XL last holiday season.  I guess I could give that one to my kids if I pick up the new one.  It depends on how much it is.  We have time though.  We probably won't see it in NA until 2015.

Thank you to Leo for pushing the edge of the envelope in the Torment difficulties so we can all experience the nemesis system  icon_smile

The music/sound effects that warn of an impending nemesis invasion are awesome.  Immediate adrenaline rush.

Man I started a wizard and I'm getting my ass handed to me.  Sorry to everyone who is getting invaded regularly.  My Crusader and WD fared much better than this glass (non) cannon wizard!  I've even moved down and the wiz is still getting owned pretty regularly.
I like the nemesis invasions...keep playing your Wizard  Tongue

I was invaded by Leo's nemesis tonight while working on a bounty.  Its timing was uncanny, dropping in during the middle of an elite fight.  The good news is that there's a gift in Leo's mailbox courtesy of one deceased nemesis.

Regarding adventure mode and bounties, do I need to complete all 5 bounties in an act during the same play session to get a cache?  I give it a try last night and completed 2 bounties, but needed to shut down and do something else.  When I started up again later that night those 2 completed bounties were gone. 

You need to complete all five if you're on the XB1 you should be able to switch to another app and come back to it in later as I've done this several times.  I'm not sure if you but the XB1 to sleep if it will work

It's per game session, so if you return to menu then the bounties reset.
Thanks...just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong and inadvertently resetting them.

Oh and "video" power sucks so far so I don't even expect to use it much.

I had the same immediate impression, but it quickly grew into my favorite power.
I sucks early on but gets better once you power it up.  I hated it too until I did that. 

Same, after getting some more powers I actually used it most of the time.  Especially when traveling it was my favorite!
Being able to hover strafe with an attack that is essentially a machine gun was effective (and fun).  It's been awhile, but I think video is the power that lets you stealth kill/subdue?  I used that a lot zipping in to take people out without getting hammered.

Rather than dig through this whole thread let me just rant.

I f-ing hate boss battles.  I have been loving the game up to the point where I have to face the Angel conduit.  It has every stupid hallmark of a boss battle - which I hate!  

It doesn't even f*&%ing fit even remotely with the rest of the game play up to that point.  I spent hours running around town climbing things choosing how to defeat enemies and using many different powers but no now I have to f-ing fight in a boxed in area where the safe spots disappear so I have to keep running around, and of course the boss is strong enough that I need to constantly seek out more ammo.  Of course the boss has three stages where he gets different powers or protections so I have to figure that out while jumping around like an idiot over lava.

I can't think of any boss battle cliche they don't cover.  It is maddening and stupid.  Why do developers think they have to include this.  It is like a stupid checklist or something.

Uggg!

I didn't like that fight at all either.
It's a tedious fight, and not fun.  I did it once on normal and once on hard.  It's one of those fights that's more tedious and frustrating than actually challenging.  Some of the boss fights do exactly what you said, they go counter to the freedom of the main game and restrict movement.

Act 5 is awesome.  I'm really enjoying the setting and tone.  Unlocking transmorgify is huge for someone like me who's particular about having a character that also doesn't look like a junkyard knight.

Expert difficulty worked out well for me solo and local co-op for the main game.  I ended Act 4 at level 60...which is much better than my first time on PC finishing around level 30.  They did a nice job with the Crusader.  I tried out everything.  Throwing hammers, mostly ranged magic, shield throwing, all melee, melee ranged combo, and everything worked well.  When I needed to I could slot all healing + health regen skills and pretty much just stand and tank through the worst boss fights or encounters against epic packs.  It's a fun class that can provide that rewarding melee close combat feel, or more of a battlemage type of experience.

Adventure Mode is a specific game mode. It gives you access to the entire game without the campaign, and adds random bounties across the various acts. These bounties can ask you to enter a specific cave and clear it of monsters, defeat a certain named monster, find a specific item, kill a specific boss, and so on. Once you've done 5 of these in one act, that act is "completed" (though you can just restart to gain all new bounties for that act) and you gain a Horadrim Cache for your trouble. This contains a bunch of useful stuff, and it has a chance of dropping completely unique legendaries that can only be gained this way.

Through doing bounties you also gain rift fragments. You spend these to gain access to a Nephilim Rift. This costs 5 fragments at the moment, but an upcoming patch will reduce it to 1 fragment per player who wishes to enter. These are completely randomized dungeons of anywhere between 1 and 10 levels without regard to logic when it comes to what monsters you will encounter. This is where you can find the clickers from The Last of Us. Rifts have a dramatically increased chance of dropping legendaries, encouraging you to play them as often as possible to improve your character.
Now that's how to do an end game.  Sounds awesome.

OK so I finally saw that legendary gift sitting in my inventory but I didn't know how to send it lol.  Does anyone know if it's scaled to when the receiving player opens it, or when it was generated by the giver? 

Also wondering in an online MP game, what happens if there are 3 or 4 players but 1 of them opens their pause menu - does the whole game pause for everyone or are the remaining players still able to play? 
I just learned that too.  A couple of nights ago I was surprised to see a gift wrapped present drop on the ground as loot.  Above the present it said "Rittchard".  Things were happening so fast that I didn't have time to stop and see what happened to it.  I later found it in my gift bag in my inventory.  Hopefully you got it.

On another note, I started a Monk last night and am enjoying that much more than the Crusader for some reason.  Maybe I was just tired the night before, or maybe the speedier attacks felt better, who knows.
I played a monk through the old nightmare and hell difficulties, and I agree, the playstyle feels fast.  It's a fun class.  And I wasn't paying attention to optimal build guides or anything like that.  I just went with whatever skills and runes were the most fun for me (at that moment).  

The crusader has a different pace, but I'm imagining him as kind of a Warhammer 40k SM chaplain type, wearing stupidly heavy armor, wielding giant maces, and dispensing the fury of the Emperor...I mean Zakarum.

I wish I had played with higher difficulty before.  I just got to Act 5 and I'm at level 48.  XP and gold bonus are amazing.
I know.  My crusader is level 33 at the start of Act 2 playing expert.  I started on Hard, which worked for awhile.  But once I started socketing gems it became easy.  I switched to expert towards the end of Act 1 which really ratcheted up experience gain.

The next gen version of this game is so good.  Playing a Crusader is like playing Thor + Capt America + spartan warrior + paladin knight all rolled into one.  It's such a fun class that I have a hard time deciding what skills I'm going to use each session.  Do I want to throw shields at things, or do I want to throw hammers?  Do I feel like smashing things in close with huge weapons, or doing a mix of mid-range and melee?  And he can carry 2 handed weapons while using a shield?  Awesome.   
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 21, 2014, 12:23:36 AM
I tried local co-op with my Crusader being level 15, and the other 2 people starting at level 1.  A message popped up saying that their stats were boosted.  They seemed to do just fine, especially after they started getting good drops.  It seemed like their leveling pace was fast too.  After about an hour of play they were level 11 and my crusader was level 18.  The apprentice boost seemed to work well.

I've never been diagnosed with hypochondria, but I know I suffer from it too.  I also felt immortal as a teen and in my early 20's, but then my dad died of cancer.  Since his mom also died of cancer, that really kicked my hypochondria into gear.  Since then, when I learn that someone else is sick, I start asking tons of questions about all of the symptoms to make sure I don't have it.  It's selfish, stupid and frustrating. 

I've had an arrhythmia since I was a teenager that became a little worse in my early 30's due to stress.  That really freaked me out.  It results in extra contractions, or early contractions that feel like skipped or extra beats.  It can be really unnerving (and has resulted in 1 trip to the ER in my 30's).  Doctors have all said not to worry and that it's not uncommon.  Regular exercise helps a lot.  Now in my early 40's the arrhythmia still reminds that it's there, which gets the hypochondriac anxiety going, but I'm much better about it now. 

I get white coat syndrome every time I go to a clinic or doctors office and get my vitals checked.  It's stupid because I'm a runner and cyclist and have healthy vitals.  I guess what I'm trying to say is that you're definitely not alone.  It seems to run in my family.

I wholeheartedly agree about trying not to research things on the internet.  I also try and remind myself that my energy is better spent thinking about other things.

Looks like there's more to this update -

"We're giving old and new fans a lot reasons to pick up the game, as we've gone beyond just increasing resolution and running at 1080p," said Dan Sochan, senior producer at United Front Games, in a press release. "We listened to the fans: We tuned gameplay, we added to the ambience of Hong Kong, increased audio fidelity and pushed the visuals further than we could on the previous generation of consoles."

I wonder if the PC version gets the update for free? If not, I might bite on the PS4 version. This is one of the few video games I've played in a long time that left an impression on me long after I stopped playing it.
Me too.  I really enjoyed the setting, characters and story.  It will be interesting to see what new features they add.

After 68 hours of total play, I have finally finished a game of Civ V. On Chieftain. I always play on large maps at epic speed and I always get bogged down in the end game and quit playing. Heck to win this game I think it took me 20 hours. It was fun though, too easy obviously, looking forward to starting again at a higher difficulty level.
That's impressive.  I've never had the focus needed to finish a game of Civ 5.  I really enjoy playing, and I tend to binge play for a few days, but then I get distracted by something else.  I've lost focus with pretty much every 4x or Civ type game I've ever played.

I keep my gamepad in the charging cradle when I'm not using it.  That helps keep it ready for play.  I do use the pro controllers more though.  You heard right, they last a long time on one charge.

The gamepad is really nice for off-tv play.  The other day one of my kids was playing DK Tropical Freeze on the gamepad, the other was playing DK Country on the 3DS, and I was watching recorded dvr shows on the tv.  Pretty cool.

Don't you think they would make a boat load of money off in game televised advertising?  I hope it never goes in that direction, but I think in game advertising would be much more profitable than adboards at the stadium.

It's so weird as an American trying to understand that there is an entity (FIFA) bigger than the commerical enterprise of a league.  In my mind the Premier League, like the NFL or NBA, should be able to do whatever they want in the interest of their league and sport.  But all of the pro leagues are overseen by FIFA?

That seems harsh. Maybe I am so used to it I don't notice it anymore? Outside of the usuals offenders like Robben and Ronaldo I don't think it's been bad at all. In fact it seems much more physical than the WC usually is. We have seen a broken arm, a couple of black eyes, cleats dragged across shins, and collisions that caused bloodshed on more than one occasion.

So many great games so far, this has been the best WC I remember ,and I haven't missed one since 1986.
I like seeing them play more physical, but it seems like a good amount of the collisions result in 1 or more of the players exaggerating what actually happened, sometimes with unintended comical effect.  I understand it's part of the game, it's just detracts from all the good things they're doing.  I like it when the refs ignore it and play on...or issue a yellow card.

I saw the final and runner up matches for the women's world cup in Pasadena and they hardly ever flopped or exaggerated injuries.  They would collide and just keep on playing.  It was cool to watch.  They played tough.  I thought the ladies were great ambassadors for the sport.  Get knocked down, get up and keep playing.

The difference in the quality of passing and ball possession really stands out.  It's like watching masterful artists of their craft and then watching novices or journeymen who are working really hard, but just don't have the skill level.  Maybe determinition and good fortune can prevail over skill and experience?

Mexico played their hearts out yesterday, but just couldn't keep it together for the final 10 minutes against the Netherlands.  The Dutch team was patient.  They let the Mexican players wear themselves out and then capitilized on their late game mistakes.  I don't know how they do that.  I guess it's just experience. 

The Costa Rica and Greece game was a nail biter too. 

Some of the European and South American players are so talented, it's like they were born with a soccer ball at their feet.  I don't know how the US team stands a chance other than to maybe outwork the other teams just through sheer determination.  Some of the things I saw European and South American teams do just moving the ball around were amazing.  Backwards heel flick passes, lots of slick 1 touch passing. 

That said, I hate all of the flopping, fake injuries, and pretend head bumps.  It's insane.  They look like idiots.

Yep, turn-based.  2 core party members that you create, and you can pickup 2 more npcs for a party of 4 (plus room for summons I believe).  The skill system seems to be open, but they do have class templates to help get things started (they can be edited and modified).

You're right, I forgot that the show opens with a white walker invasion, shown in more detail than the book.  Also, we got to see the worg reveal pretty early too.  Being able to possess animals is definitely well beyond typical medieval themed stories.  The rebirth of Daenerys as the dragon mother, stepping out of the flames unscathed with her hatched baby dragons was also a big indication of where things were headed.  She survived being engulfed in flames without burning.   
39  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Game of Thrones - Season 4 is coming (please mark spoilers) on: June 19, 2014, 06:01:46 PM
I think the books do a better job of preparing the reader for encounters with the supernatural than the show has.  In the book, the first interactions Jon has with the veterans of the Night's Watch are about that very subject: supernatural stuff beyond the wall.  The whole "Winter is coming" can be translated to "Your bedtime horror stories about freaky magic sh*t beyond the wall are about to come true".  The denial and rejection of that message/warning is kind of thematic...maybe for some of the viewers of the show too.    

I just don't think the show has enough time to devote to giving all the clues and reveals from the books, although they do a really good job of showing the main points.  I also think that some % of the millions of viewers are watching solely for the drama of the relationship and political soap opera of the show, and have been looking past some of the previous fantasy elements.  Seeing what looks like a little elf hurling fireballs, and skeletons popping out of the ground, and then some kind of tree root magician was probably too much for them to look past.  Bran's arc is almost 100% fantasy now, so that % of viewers can't ignore it anymore.  It's right in their face.  I'm not sure how many of those viewers understood what the book series was all about before they got hooked on the show.    

Personally, I really like the Bran arc because it is delving head first into the supernatural.  I've felt like the other character story arcs on the show have been tap dancing around it carefully, but never committing.

Not enjoying the Bran storyline at all, and hoping it doesn't continue much further. It's too weird.

Spoiler for Hiden:
they left too much open....is The Hound really dead? Is Daddy Lannister? The Mountain seems to be the only one they made somewhat clear will still be around after transfusion.
Regarding what's in the spoiler tags, I think all of that is intentional to hook people into the start of the next season.  Typical season finale cliffhanger stuff.

It's interesting the reactions the Bran scenes are getting from some viewers.  I'm not sure what specifically about those scenes pushed viewers too far.  We've seen what appear to be standard fare zombies, super natural snow dudes with blue eyes that are unkillable without special weapons, giants, mf'ng dragons, knights being rezzed and brought back to life multiple times, & dark sorcerery resulting in a disturbing shadow assassin birth scene.  All that didn't tip viewers too far.  But the Bran scenes did.
