Sony needs to step up their AAA title game for the PS4. Xbox One got Tomb Raider Remastered and PS4 gets more indies. In fact the only AAA title I can recall PS+ giving out is the DLC for Infamous.

Seriously? By your count  it is currently 1-1 on AAA titles (Tomb Raider vs First Light). The fact is Sony gives away 6 games per month and historically there have been some really great games in there. Also just last week Tomb Raider was on sale for $15 on the PSN, at that price it's a steal.

Sounds like you troubleshooted as best you could without doing a complete hard drive wipe.  Is Titanfall the only game doing this? Or all your games?

Nope, I tried the newest Tomb Raider and it made it into about 5 minutes through the cave and locked up.  I also tried the Tomb Raider game that looks like Diablo and it immediately crashed as soon as I started to move...  But, on games that require next to no special/hard graphics, like Beat Hazard and BroForce, they'll play absolutely fine. 

Should I just backup all my pics and docs and wipe the thing or will putting in this new GTX 960 fix it?  I'll post my rig info tonight, after class.  Thanks

If you already have the new card on the way I would just wait to see if that fixes it. I know you updated the Nvidia drivers, but did you completely uninstall them prior to installing the new one. I would definitely do that prior to putting the new card in. Basically, uninstall the Drivers with the old card in. Turn off PC, install new card, turn PC on, install most recent Nvidia drivers. If that doesn't fix it then you know it's not the card or the Nvidia driver.

any thoughts on the fence supports being on the 'wrong' side? I'm no engineer but I would have thought that by having the fence supports on the inside of the fence that it could better withstand the pushing from hordes of undead.

Thoughts?


It's definitely strange and the director went out of his way to show the supports being on the outside so I doubt it's just something the design and writing crew over looked. Either it is meant to keep people in or at some point in the story the stupid design will show that the Alexandria people really don't know what they're doing.

I haven't read the comics so I don't really know what to expect with this group. I do find it hard to believe that they could survive this long being that close to a highly populated area, even more so if they are as naive as they are playing. Even if the Army did evacuate there would still be a ton of walkers and other people in the DC area.

[sigh] OK, time to confess that I apparently SUCK at killing Lycans - as in the first damn one at the end of Chapter 1. What's the "trick" here? OK, great, I can dodge when the red X shows up but so what - how in the hell do I kill it? Can't seem to shoot it, the R1 secondary weapon on the rifle doesn't seem to phase it and any time we grapple, my mad button mashing still ends up with me dead.  mad

So what works?

Just shoot them a few times, then run up to them and do the context-sensitive killing blow. You should get a tutorial message about this the first time you have to do it. It's not hard at all, honestly.

I wouldn't think so, which is why I was getting pissed off about being 'stuck'. I've yet to see any tutorial message about a 'killing blow', I'll see if I can get it to trigger tonight.

After you shoot them enough times they will go down and not move and then the button will appear allowing you to finish it off. If you don't finish it fast enough it will get back up and try to kill you again.

My experiences at local gamestops haven't been nearly as bad. They usually ask me about pre-orders on a game or two, but it's never as bad as Ron's experience. I usually say "No I'm not interested in anything else right now" and that's good enough. I pay and leave.

With that said I have never bought a system from Gamestop and I usually only buy niche games that are hard to find at other stores, so I'm not in there all that often.

Well, I've played the first three chapters (plus prologue) now, and I've enjoyed them a lot. I think I'm starting to see why so many reviewers disliked the game though. We've gone through a very gradual change in video games over the last 10 years or so, where developers and publishers (particularly those) don't want to risk the player becoming bored, so there has to be action all the time. Better yet, there should be plenty of action between the action, just to avoid any risk that you'll lose interest. Ubisoft has become particularly bad at this. Count the number of random encounters you'll run into when moving from one location to another in Assassin's Creed Unity or Far Cry 4, for example. It gets tiresome really quickly, unless you've got a really short attention span (which admittedly the primary target group most likely has). EA isn't much better (worse? Opinions, opinions...) either though.

The Order: 1886 doesn't care about that. It does its own thing at its own pace, and you'd better like it or else. At least up to where I am, this is a storytelling game first and foremost, with the occasional and competent shooter section to break up the dialogue and linear exploration. This doesn't really fly with modern action game expectations, and most players will probably be left tapping their feet impatiently while waiting for something "fun" to happen. If you can appreciate a good story with well-acted characters though (caveat: it could take a 180 later on for all I know, but at this point the story and characterization feels surprisingly mature and restrained, even more so when compared to the incredibly banal Gears of War series), you'll find something to like here.

People often compare this game to Ryse now that the verdict is out, but that seems a little unfair. Ryse's gameplay was extremely simplistic, while The Order: 1886 is a full-blown shooter with some very original weapons.

I'm at the exact same point in the game and I agree completely. I just hope the story doesn't peter out, because at this point it seems like it's building up to something good. The game honestly reminds me of a mix between Gears and recent Telltale games (Walking Dead, GoT and Borderlands). Heavy on story and QTEs (like TT games) but then it will break out into full on 3rd person shooting. So far I like it.

I thought AC3 was just okay, but it's been so long since I played it, maybe that is through rose colored glasses. I absolutely loved AC4, mainly because the pirate theme was so appealing to me.

I don't know, based on how you just described Unity, I suppose I'll wait until it's in the bargain bin at $20 or something before getting it.

That's a good bet. I paid $30 for it and I haven't gotten my money's worth. It's just not a fun game for me. This is coming from someone who loved AC4.

According to Game Informer, Patch 5 is removing all requirements for the Unity companion app and the "Initiates" website:

Quote from: Game Informer
The title previously required users to connect with a companion app and the AC Initiates website in order to unlock certain items. That changes today.

“Patch 5” unlocks all of the blue and gold chests connected with progression related to Initiates and the app.


The patch, which also includes a new round of performance optimizations and bug fixes, is expected on consoles today and on PC later in the week.

-Autistic Angel

I bet they are only removing the companion app requirement because 90% of the people who actually tried to use it couldn't even get it to sync. Which is really just one of the many things they fucked up with this game.

I tried playing Unity, but I just can't get into it. The next AC will need to have absolutely glowing reviews for me to even consider it. I should have known better too after I had the same experience with Watch Dogs.

I'm seeing on twitter that this game is only 5 hours.  Is that true?

There's a Let's Play for the game, which your number is based upon, that clocks in at roughly 5 1/2 hours, I believe. The player rushes through the game without exploring anything, and almost never dies. I haven't seen it myself, but this is what I've been told. The player himself says that the game is longer than his Let's Play suggests, with reports indicating that the average length for most people should be somewhere between 8 and 15 hours.

I've heard the same thing, so it's a safe bet that the game is 8 to 12 hours for most gamers.

Clip that I bet will be pulled soon.  

I love the ways they show how strong Cap is.  His powers if you don't read the comics mostly come across as "he is really fit" but this kind of shows he is a bit stronger than that.

http://youtu.be/w75cwgEjnQ4

In the comics his strength is comparable to Spider Man's and by most accounts Spider Man can lift about 10 tons.

Also there is no way the Hulk could ever lift Mjolnir because lifting it is not based on strength, it's based on worthiness. Comic book Drazzil could lift it if he was deemed worthy enough.

I was a big Fantastic 4 fan as a kid so the first 2 movies where huge letdowns for me. While I don't have high hopes for this reboot, it will have a hard time being as bad as the Rise of the Silver Surfer. That movie was just awful.

If they want to make this movie great they really need to nail Dr Doom. Take a look at Loki, they nailed that character and every scene he is in is better because of it. If they can somehow find a way to make Dr. Doom as interested as he should be then this movie has a chance. But heck I don't even know if this movie has Doom in it.

I don't think they stated it outright, but it was strongly implied if nothing else. It also fits neatly into the vision Microsoft has of becoming a company for services, not products.

They literally stated it outright.

This has the potential to be really great or really bad. It could go bad if the "free" upgrade version is a neutered version with important features missing that you now have to pay extra for. They could get carried away and make features like media server connectivity and media player monthly charges. If it's free then please give us a full release don't nickle and dime us so that it costs more in the long run. I'm not saying they are going to do that, just that I could see them doing that and if so that would suck.

Tearaway is excellent if you're in to platformers. Plus it's easy to get the platinum trophy so there's that added bonus. The Devs actually used the camera, microphone, motion sensing, and touch screen in ways that added to the gameplay rather than taking away from it.

I did pick up the Ratchet and Clank collection for Vita and I'm pleasantly surprised by the port from the PS3 version. The controls are just as tight as they are with a DS3 and the graphics don't suffer at all making it a steal at $12.
Tearaway is pretty fun, even though the controls can be a pita sometimes.  I gave up on the plat after failing the whole no-death run on the rolling ball levels.

When you get the trilogy, does it install all the games at once or is each an individual download?  That is the worst aspect of the GoW collection. 

It installs all of them at once, and there is only 1 game icon, so you launch the collection, then choose from within the game which one you want to play. I think the DL is 3.3 gigs.

Being a life long OSU fan I have to say I love the College Football playoff. Under the BCS we probably would have finished #5 or 6. Under this new system OSU proved that they were the best team at the end of the year. Beating #1 Alabama and then Oregon by 22 is impressive, without the 4 turnovers it would have been even more. It's a good day to be a Buckeye.

A great way to find out how someone feels you treat them is to ask.


To the OP... it's one thing for love to wax and wane, that's normal, but if you truly feel it has never been present, then I don't think extracting yourself is the worst thing you could do.  It will obviously be hard and will have an impact on your lives and the lives of your children, but staying in a loveless marriage will also have an impact.  If you are miserable all the time, how can you possibly be the best parent you can be?  The thought of not living with my kids every day murders me, though, so I understand how hard it is to make that decision.  Good luck.

I completely agree with this. You can look at it from a mid life crisis point of view and say "you only live once". Do you really want to spend it with someone you truly don't love and have never loved? This isn't to say that I think Lee should get a divorce. BUT if he truly never loved her then I would say he deserves to go out and find love, the same goes for her. At the same time I could not handle the thought of my children living in a different home than me.  

The thing I can't understand is why someone would stop loving their wife because of differing religious beliefs. If you loved them prior to the difference then you should still be able to love them after the difference.

I really like this.  I need to be far more proactive with these in my marriage as well, as I tend to really take her for granted.  This sort of daily affirmation will be a really good place to start.

Thanks for this input ATB.   thumbsup

<cough> you left off the most important one. slywink

I don't think he did.

Leading someone else, in any aspect, is not a dynamic that works for a lot of people. Were I to ask the woman I'm dating if I'd led her on *anything*, I'm pretty sure she'd resent it.

Does your wife ask you the same questions? Is she responsible for fulfilling a different set of criteria, and how often does she "lead" in that regard?

Also ATB seems to be ignoring the fact that Lee's wife is Jehovahs Witness and he is not anymore. So him leading her spiritually is next to impossible at this point. People with differing religions are able to be in loving marriages all of the time so it seems to me Lee could do it too, he just can't have "god" as the most important thing in his relationship. In fact it really shouldn't be in it at all. A love for one's spouse has nothing to do with religious beliefs as far as I'm concerned.

So I finished it on Sunday. 80+ hours, finished on Hard mode, the game is excellent and my GOTY. I do have a nitpick about the final battle, spoilered not to talk about the story, but the mechanics of the final boss fights:








Spoiler for Hiden:
Why in the heck did the ending battle not incorporate any of the companions who weren't in your immediate party and make use of Skyhold? It seems like such a waste. As it was the final fight was a total cake walk, even on Hard mode. I would have liked to see the actual defenses in Skyhold come into play with your agents and other companions fighting as well. Instead we essentially get a standard 11th Dragon fight and one last standard boss fight. It was a real let down after the previous 80+ hours. Not Mass Effect 3 levels of letdown, but a letdown nonetheless.

It's weird, but I sometimes think the RCAP is becoming sentient after it replies in an almost human way.  But then I realize that's impossible.

p.s. "Enhanced Interrogation" is now one of my favorite ridiculous euphemisms.  I'm thinking of adding it to my daily lexicon.  When I see a kid beat up another kid for his lunch money, it's not bullying...it's "Enhanced Financial Acquisition".  A man kicking his dog is no longer animal cruelty...it's "Enhanced Behavioral Reinforcement".  And when I eat too many potato chips in one sitting, it's not overeating...it's "Enhanced Caloric Intake".

I just performed an enhanced defecation on the office toilet. Sadly I didn't get any credible intelligence out of it.

To me it's about exclusives and PS4's exclusives are head and shoulders better than what XB1 is offering, to my gaming tastes anyway. Infamous, MLB The Show, and The Last of Us were all fantastic. Uncharted is coming up next year. On the other side I have no interest in Halo or Dead Rising and while I hear Sunset Overdrive was good fun, it's not a game I'd hinge my system purchasing decision on.

Spec-wise, ya the PS4 is better but I'm not sure if it's going to mean all that much two or three years into this generation's life cycle. 90% of the games I want are available on both and the ones that aren't I am more interested in the Sony versions, thus I own a PS4. Which is still strange for me to say since I was a big 360 guy and had zero interest in the PS4 last generation.

You summarized my thoughts exactly. I can't wait for some other big Sony exclusives to start hitting, Ratchet & Clank, God of War (But they better revolutionize this one, open world a la Batman would be awesome), Uncharted, and I would love a new Socom even though nothing has been announced.

I still have a 360, PS3, Wii and even a Nintendo 64 plugged into various TVs. They don't get as much use as the PS4, but they still get used now and then, even the N64.

I have a Gamecube, PS1, SNES and Dreamcast in storage just in case I want to fire them up someday.

Its hard to win with you isn't it Tilt?

Win? I wasn't aware we were having a competition.

I try to conceed a point and still you shit on it. Would it take 2 seconds to program the option in? Hell no, it's a figure of speech.

As I said, it's a pet peeve of mine. Nothing personal. There are way too many people who berate programmers and say those exact words ("it'll only take 2 seconds to implement") and mean them seriously for it to be very funny to me, as a programmer myself. It's next to impossible to separate the ironic from those who are being serious.
It's hard to win with you is another figure of speech. It means that even when someone tries to agree with you or compliment you, you will still find a reason to complain. I didn't imply that anyone was actually trying to win anything.
