1  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Severed (Vita) on: April 28, 2016, 02:19:55 PM
(Cross post from the Weekly release thread, because this game deserves its own thread.)

I bought it on a whim, I have played 10 minutes of it. I already know I will love it. I like dungeon crawlers and I loved Guacamelee. If that describes you then this game will be right up your alley. The only concern I have at this point is the constant screen swiping and the fear that it might get old. But I have a feeling this isn't the longest game out there, so the screen swiping should be tolerable.

The GamingTrend review is now up and they gave it a 90% and addressed some of my concerns about the swiping. At only $13 I don't think I will regret my purchase.

That really kind of annoys me.  I know it shouldn't and it is silly to be annoyed but I was looking forward to Zelda sometime this fall and now I have to wait a year.

Yeah, I have to agree.  I knew to expect it but it still annoys me and devalues the Wii U I've been trying to support.
Yep, I feel this pretty much just killed the WiiU completely.  I really hope that the NX has backwards compatibility so that people who skip it donít miss out on the really great games on the system.

The WiiU is the only Nintendo system I have not owned and now I have zero reason to get one. No new Zelda or Metroid for the system makes it a total waste of a generation for Nintendo. They basically hung their hat on Mario this generation and that's no enough for me.

Probably Star Fox.

If I hadn't already played through Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, I'd get that.  If you haven't played it, give it a look.  It's a pretty great 2D experience.  Nice graphics, fun characters, good story and tight action-platforming.

Looks like I'll be passing on Star Fox.

The reviews are so-so, but it's mostly the control scheme.  I didn't realize that you flew the ship with the sticks and using the pad's gyroscopic controls for the shooting, simultaneously.

Not only does that sound awkward, it sounds more so given that I need glasses for the pad and not for the TV.  Until I get progressives, this seems like an exercise in frustration.
I watched a streamer in Australia play (attempt to would be more accurate) the JPN copy and grew so frustrated with the scheme that he bailed after an hour.  

Apparently Nintendo didn't learn anything from Lair.

The upgraded version of this game hits the PS4 on May 3rd. I can't wait, I bought it on the 360 back in the day but at the time it went into my backlog and I never got around to finishing it.

Unequal equivalent.  Would be more like if she had a lisp and was auditioning for Shakespeare.  icon_razz

Ultimately, I wish companies would just give gamers the option to choose.  Want the shiny graphics? On by default.  Want your game to run better? Click here to disable adv lighting or something.  A couple notable console games have already gone this route.

I did also have some strangeness with the install.  I purchased the digital version and it told me everything was downloaded and installed.  I played for about an hour and then when I reached a new planet I got stuck at a downloading screen.  Took about 20 minutes to finish.  Assuming that was a one-time thing, (it hasnít happened again) not a game breaker, but a little annoying.

Almost every PS4 game that you download has an initial download that lets you play early sections of the game and then a second download that you don't actually see that downloads the rest of the game. If you go into your storage management and look at the individual game right after you first download it the system will tell you how much more is left to download.

Also, I would be curious to know if your frame rate improved after the game completely downloaded. I have had several games improve their performance after the full download.

The disc versions do the same thing, they install a small amount that lets you play the game right away and then it installs the rest of the game. Sony did this so that you don;t have to wait for a complete 40 gig install when you first get the game.

We don't know what the captain's agenda is, but we do know that it's in Mexico.

At least they narrowly avoided adding two toddlers to the cast. That would have been a death blow. Zombie toddler made it better.

Shame about the framerate though, itís the only thing preventing me from fully recommending the game.   


What seriously? It's a rock solid 30, yeah 60 would be nice, but with those visuals come on man don't be unreasonable.
Frame rate is more important than graphics for me.  I would rather play a worse looking game with solid 60.  Frame rate is very noticeable anytime you rotate the camera and jumping is a bit awkward. 

The fact that Iím willing to put up with it at all should be telling that I like the game, because most sub 60 experiences I wonít even touch.  Tongue

Been playing it - it's fun but it feels a little...compact? It's gotten better as the game has progressed but it just feels a little more streamlined than I would like, and the story feels a bit rushed. It makes me want to go back and play those PS3 remasters, though.

Outstanding production values, and some great humor. I think it may feel slightly more compact because its based on the original game which was on hardware that couldn't support the large levels.

Yep I agree. You also have to remember that this is a $40 game at launch. But with this engine already up and running imagine how great a full made from scratch R&C game will be. And you better believe they are working on a brand new title.

This game is out and I have played about 2 hours of it so far.  icon_eek Holy shit is it a great looking game. Seriously the pics and videos don't do it justice. If you have ever been a fan of platformers then this game should be considered a must buy. The gameplay is just as solid as ever. Anyone who has played the original Ratchet and Clank will find a lot of familiar things, but this is no ordinary HD re-release, it's a complete remake, with a highly revised story, new scenes, new areas and most obvious of all a really impressive graphics engine.

Ratchet and Clank- Preordered from Amazon as well.

I will get DS3 but I like to wait a while to play those games because From Software will patch the hell out of it in the next 3-6 months.

I started up Zombi since it's a PS+ game this month, and I'm surprisingly liking it. It reminds me of an easier version of Dark Souls mixed together with Dead Island. I'll play it at least until Tuesday when I get Ratchet and Clank, but if the game holds my interest I will probably try to complete it.

be grateful for an open market.

My town offers Verizon, Comcast, and BELD. BELD is our municipal power company since 1891, which branched into cable and then internet. They have fewer than 10,000 customers, everyone who works there is local, and if they make a profit it goes into the town coffers. When I have a tech problem (as I did today) I email Chris in their support department and get a personal response in 15 minutes.

Socialism FTW! It's a shame that governments in most of the US are prohibited from competing. They aren't innovators but they sure do deliver basic utilities better than the capitalists do.

I wouldn't label that as true socialism when you have 2 private options. Also, in your case I would take the municipal option every time, as I'm sure that money helps your community way more than it would by going to Verizon or Comcast.

It's a similar deal to what happened with Bayonetta 2, apparently.

It's working title is Beyond Good and Evil: The Prejudices of Philosophers.



If true that might get me to buy a NX. I skipped the WiiU so if they add in backwards compatibility with the WiiU then I would definitely be in.

This month's selection is easily the worst since they went to the monthly format. This is coming from someone who hasn't complained about the game selection in the past. There literally isn't one game on the list that I feel like Downloading.

Here's the full list:
Broforce (PS4)
Galak-Z (PS4)
Super Stardust HD (PS3) - Doesn't everyone already have this game if they want it?
The Last Guy (PS3) - This game is literally 8 years old.
Flame Over (PS Vita) - Never heard of it.
Reality Fighters (PS Vita) - Never heard of it.

Well, Galak-Z is pretty decent and well reviewed.

Broforce is awesome and one of the better free PS+ games.

If Broforce was crossplay on the Vita then I would play it. But there is zero chance that I will play it on my big screen.

Very awkward scene where Michonne and Rick were making googly eyes at one another during the RV drive.


Not liking that relationship. The attraction between them seemed to come out of nowhere. I suppose I could buy it as meaningless random sex but that's out of place for this show.

The herd needs thinning and there are plenty of relics from old story arcs who would not be missed. Among the A Team, they're foreshadowing death for Maggie, maybe Michonne, and probably Abraham. How many seasons has this show had now? It must be getting near the end and some cast members must be ready to move on.

This is season 6 and the show still gets huge ratings. So my guess is there will be at least 3 more seasons. If I'm an actor on this show I don't leave voluntarily right now. But I agree the heard has needed thinned the entire season. My guess is we will see more than one long term character death before season 7.

1. Obstructionist Repubs should be hanged for treason

4. If clinton wins and she puts Obama up, he will NEVER get approved. Ever. EVER.
5. America is hosed.

As a Libertarian leaning person I would actually be more likely to vote Republican in the next election if they do get a new Judge confirmed this year. The reasoning is simple. It would tip the court to a 5-4 liberal balance (something we haven't had in a VERY long time). The next president will then more than likely get to pick 1 or 2 more new judges. If we get a Dem president the Supreme Court could very likely go 6-3 liberal by 2020. This is something  I do not want. On the other hand if they confirm somebody and then a republican wins the election then the court is more likely to stay relatively balanced 5-4 one way or the other. Balance is better, especially when there are truly middle of the road judges who can put the law above politics (Think the opposite of Thomas).

As it stands though if the Republicans block just for the sake of blocking then I will most definitely not be voting republican in the presidential election.
ActuallyI think the older Supreme Court justices are mainly on the Liberal side so even if a Democratic president were elected the balance would probably not shift much (unless Obummer keeps assassinating judges).

  The cooks on Infowars.com are pushing the assassination angle hard. The entertainment value one can get from that website is awesome.

My hope is that the writers somehow fix this by letting Barry become faster naturally, rather than using some silly tech or Speed Potion trick. Traditionally the comic book Flash can run as fast as the speed of light, the TV Barry isn't even close to that. Heck he barely gets around Mach 2.
IIRC, the Flash wasn't that fast in the comics in the beginning either. It's something he worked up to.

yeah I get that but 1500 mph isn't fast at all when we are talking about the Flash. I want him to get faster.

Your car analogy is so far removed from this scenario that it's like comparing a distracted driver to a mother who doesn't care. More on point where is the line that you would like to draw between personal responsibility and the nanny state? I mean the movie is called Deadpool, in order to even buy the tickets she would have to say please give me tickets for DEADPOOL. The name itself implies that this isn't your average Marvel movie, if that doesn't tell you that you should look at the rating then I don't know what does.

Great movie but WTH parents why are there kids like 7 years old at the movie?  Congrats to the Mom and her 4 kids all young that now know what exactly a strip club is like inside and what goes on in there.

As a joke, it took me like 5 seconds to Google up 'Why is Deadpool rated R?' and find out exactly why so thanks to IMDB.

...why can't parents do so?

Because it doesn't occur to them that they have to do that.

The kids want to see the movie.  All the parents see is a poster for Marvel and what looks like a regular superhero on it.  They've been to Marvel movies before, and it has never been a problem.  Why would they even think to check if this one is an outlier?

The studio has done what they could with the previews and such, but if the parents haven't seen that, there's not much to do. 

The only time to be sure the message is getting to the parents is at the point of sale.  I feel like the onus should be on the theater to point out when they are buying or picking up the tickets that the movie is rated R.  I get it, they don't want to give a refund, but the backlash could be really bad.

Umm maybe because it has a rating that people should use as a guideline...

Seriously?

there should still be a societal obligation to point out to a parent that this movie is an outlier from every other Marvel movie that has come before.  Again.

Seriously? There is a societal obligation in place, it's called the Rating System. It's there for movies like this. If a parent can't take the 2 seconds it takes to look at the rating of a movie (Which is on the Movie poster, the board that lists the show times, the ticket, and prominently displayed before the movie actually starts, among other places) then they have terrible parenting skills and the their kids seeing an R rated film is the least of their issues.

I watched the show and it does have potential but the ability to time travel at will makes the plot hole analyst in me shine.

Spoiler for Hiden:
For instance the whole plot in the first episode was about finding Vandal Savage so they could kill him. Well the Professor/Son guy gives them pictures of Savage with very identifiable locations and dates. I.E. hop in the damn time machine, go to that place and kill him. Show over.

The same goes for the future. They know exactly where he will be and when. So just go there and kill him. Once again show over

Also, the biggest problem this show may have in the long run is having way too many characters. There are too many people to focus on.

I'm not sure how much of the other two shows you watch(ed), and/or if you saw the 2-part crossover?  From that perspective, it didn't feel like too many people for me, since the majority of the characters were introduced slowly over time and had all their backstories told.  But I can definitely see that if you are coming in cold it could be confusing.

As far as plot hole analysis, you'll have a tough time since they have both time travel AND magic/mysticism, which pretty much gives them carte blanche to do whatever they want.

Spoiler for Hiden:
If you saw the crossover, they already "killed" him, but it didn't stick lol.

I have watched the other shows from the beginning. One example I can give about my concern from episode one was when they had to show scenes of each of the characters deciding to leave. This literally took about 15 minutes and it was essentially the same damn scene each time, but with different characters. It could be a running problem, but my guess is that they will just lump the characters together for most scenes. My fear is that this will become another Walking Dead where there are just way too many characters and we can't wait for the underused ones to die off.

Rise sold over 1 million, that's nothing to scoff at IMO. PC sales are gonna be good too, I guarantee.

Anyways, The Witness! Excited to pick this thing apart.

Once it finally hits the PS4 the sales will more than justify another sequel.
