I caved to the hype from the 1st game and just like the reviewer in the video burned out pretty darn quick. I liked the idea but the content was lame.

I like what I see thus far but I am not jumping in a quick as I did last time smile

We shall see.

I really liked the 1st movie. I like to think that I don't scare easily- but I was pretty darned scared during this movie. I actually had to tell myself that this wasn't an actual found footage movie - yes I did. Will never repeat that ever - thank god the internet doesn't make things permanent.

I'd like to see a mini SNES over NES. I'm old so I remember having the NES but the SNES was my fav.

Does this have the same awful texture pop that Rage had on PS4?

My friend playing it last night said it was exactly like Rage with those problems.  He's still enjoying it, but said it was quit blurry at times (on PC playing on Ultra).

Didn't see this on the xbone.

The video below shows what I mean:
https://youtu.be/SILNqQOeciE?t=145

The left column are my current specs. The red #s to the right indicate what my base stats were I assume. Is there a limit to how much I can add? Are they taken from other stats in order to increase? When I watch the video I don't see the #s being drawn down from an available pool.

Can I simply add the required points to strength only?

Apologies if it seems trivial I am simply stuck.

Can anyone explain in simple easy terms how respec'ing my attributes works?

I've watched videos but no one really explains what/how it works just how to get to Rosaria.
Right now I am at 31STR and I'd like to get to 40STR - if I add the additional 9 points into STR does that mean that they are taken away from other attributes?
I'm lost.

I'm in for the SP campaign only. DOOM is what got me into gamming back in the early early 90s

Taking it slow.
Just beat Crystal Sage on 2nd attempt. Got the Butcher Knife and upgraded it to +2 or 3 (can't remember)
Also have my Halberd at +4 - wondering if I should add fire to it at this point - seems like fire does good amount of damage based on videos I've been watching.

You can always change infusions later. Fire is great early game as the damage outpaces any scaling you'd be getting and a lot of early enemies are vulnerable to fire.

Ah ha- many thanks. I was worried that once I infuse I am 'stuck' with it and didn't want to feel like I wasted it.

Tried to summon a bazillion phantoms last night and finally succeeded. I think I will take that approach on a go forward basis.
Helped with the 2nd boss which ended up not being as bad as I thought.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC,XB1,PS4] Dark Souls III on: April 17, 2016, 07:58:32 PM
My son must have a horse shoe up his butt. 2x already he's prompted to invite phantoms to his fight with Vordt. 1st tone he died than the next time he gets 2 phantoms!  One orange and one white - they cream everything in front oF him and knock off Vordt quite easily.

Wish I had his luck.

took me what seems like 6 days to finally kill the 1st boss  saywhat

Question - can't remember but is there a way that you can compare an item against what you have equipped BEFORE you actually buy it?
Can't seem to figure that one out.

I tried a few matches in the MP beta this afternoon. Really only came away with two impressions:

1. It's all very, very pretty.
2. I am absolutely, completely, 100% awful at multiplayer FPS games.

I used to love UT and Q3 back in the day.  Sadly, this is a genre that has passed me by entirely.

Same exact feeling/experience. For pure nostalgia I am looking forward to playing the SP campaign only. I don't have the faculties/deterity required to have my controller settings turned up to warp speed to compete with the young kids today.

Finally hit 10 last night and was able to use the 'blue' FAL that I picked up in the DZ when I was level 8 isn't as good as I would have hoped frown

My level 9 LSW 68 is much better.

yes. Rumour has it some new guy is re-writing the script..... I don't like the sounds of that based on what happened with Prometheus...

Hi all - are any of you in the Xbox Preview Program and have an extra invite to spare? I'd like to play a little Shadow Complex as I never did finish it on the 360. Any benevolent gamers out there?

Nick is probably the first character that I hope dies violently on this show

The only challenge there is that he is so sickly and emaciated that the zombies may just pass him over. Fingers crossed for head-shot!!! dude

I would have liked to see a more rapid 'burn' to be honest. I liked the buildup  -but at the half-way or just beyond that I would have liked to see a little more action.

It is pricey all things considered. 6-8 bucks would be normal for a fast food chain combo here. I think a double bigmac meal combo is $7.59 to give you an idea. So paying 8.49 for a burger alone is huge.

31  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I just had tacos for breakfast on: April 14, 2015, 01:46:44 PM
chili with beans is great.
Tacos for breakfast whether they be pink or with ground beef/fish are great!
32  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 13, 2015, 07:32:51 PM
I came I ate - I will be back  (if only to try a different option)

Place was very busy (duh) they issue you a number and come find you to deliver your order.

I ordered the Thick Original w/ bacon, Poutine (fries, gravy and cheese) and large drink = $18.00

Burger was good -too much mayo in close proximity to the tomato and lettuce = 1st bite everything tried to squirt out the back  disgust.
Burger tasted fresh and the brioche bun was good too.
I found it a little too messy - too many garnishes I guess.

Poutine was terrible (all jokes aside) standard undercooked fries with gravy on top made it a soggy mess.
Should have got cris cut fries and will next time.

I will try it again as stated above and but will try another burger and ask for less condiments so its all together not a messy burger. I like messy - just not on my lunch hour.



33  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 10, 2015, 01:05:19 PM
I agree with Lee. In N Out does feel/taste like a burger I would make at home (smaller - but the fresh factor is there)
34  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 09, 2015, 09:22:40 PM
Yes Pug I'm leaning towards that Burger. Appreciate the responses - while I already know it's going to be no burger nirvana it'll be a nice change and little adventure I guess.

I really wish we had an In N Out up here. They had a 'popup'  location here last year but only had 300 or so burgers on hand.

Fingers crossed for an actual location soon.
35  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Carls Jr - now in Toronto should I try it? on: April 09, 2015, 06:11:17 PM
New location opened on Wednesday. Thinking about a burger for lunch tmrw.
I hear and see that they are large (per the commercials) but are they worth it?

was the sneak peek into next week's episode during the Talking Dead the one with Maggie on the front porch of Deana's home?

I obviously missed it live (watched on YouTube)  but things I've read online are like: "wow! Shit getting real next week!" etc etc.

I didn't walk away from that scene thinking that at all.

I read it as he was feeling comfortable knowing that a wall was between them. Perhaps he's no longer worried about walkers and now solely focused on human threats as they are more apt to be a issue than the walkers at this point.
39  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] The Walking Dead Season 5 on: March 09, 2015, 04:42:34 PM
I really enjoyed this episode as well. I can see how some of them are torn in terms of feeling welcome and trying to hide the fact that they 'want' to like this place.

I giggled a little when Carol was approaching the little kid - I thought to myself "here she goes again - another dead kid"
Great speech though and happy that she didn't kill him.

This is also where I stopped reading the comics
Spoiler for Hiden:
well right after Rick kicks that guys ass for beating his wife
