tried the 1.4 update and the enemies still felt like bullet sponges to me.   Glad you guys are having fun with the DLC

Since Wednesday is the traditional travel and most people take off (unless you work in a hospital like me) I think it safe to start this thread early


More ESO and Overwatch for me.   If I can find a Black Friday Deal on Dishonored 2 I might pick that up


Well I waited on latest Batman to drop to a price I can pay for it , so I just grabbed it all the DLC for 16.00 from the Xbox Black Friday sale

Anyway, what's on you plate for this long weekend?
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 11/18 pre-Thanksgiving edition on: November 19, 2016, 02:15:33 AM
ESO and Overwatch.  Both on the XB1

Reviews for Watch_Dogs 2 while okay have convinced me that I can wait to pick it up, so nada for me.

It very much felt like a trailer designed to interest people who knew about the anime because as someone who hasn't seen it I have no clue what is going on.



Actually, they specifically are trying to bring people in.  GitS story is a bit complex and they are skipping some of the sub-plots like the Laughing Man, so people new to the anime won't feel lost

Thanks Gratch smile Much better title than what I was going to use.  Anyway, more Overwatch for me and if I can get my PC working again I probably play some Tyranny too
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 11/4/16 US Pre-Election of Doom Edition on: November 07, 2016, 11:43:12 AM
Saw Dr. Strange.   It was pretty good and the after screen credit was awesome.   As expected I played plenty of Overwatch, but I'll probably slow down for awhile till Blizz updates Quickplay to the new 1 hero limit to mimic competitive.  So no more Hero Stacks.   Played some ESO too
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (Nov 6, 2016) - Fate of the free world edition on: November 07, 2016, 11:37:41 AM
Depending or reviews Dishonored 2 and I'll probably pick up Tyranny since i loved Pillars of Eternity


Kudio's on the thread title.  I got a nice chuckle
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 11/4/16 US Pre-Election of Doom Edition on: November 04, 2016, 09:53:19 AM
Besides seeing Dr. Strange sometime this weekend I'll be playing Overwatch and ESO.   What do you have lined up?
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (October 30, 2016) - Halloween edition on: October 31, 2016, 10:17:28 AM
Not a thing.  I've been off the CoD treadmill for awhile.  Depending on reviews Watch_Dogs 2 might be my next game
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist -10/27/16 Halloween Edition on: October 28, 2016, 10:56:25 AM
it will be mostly ESO and Overwatch on the XB1.   I'm not sure I'm in the mood for much else.  i've been watching streams of BF 1 and Titanfall 2 to see if they spark any interest and both I can wait on at the moment.  


What do you have line up for the weekend?
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: October 26, 2016, 01:18:33 PM
Decided to play last night to test out 1.4 and the ttk in my suggested bracket Tier 2 still felt like the enemies were bullet sponges.   Had to kick the rust off, so that might have been part of the problem, but I did do the introductory mission for the Underground DLC (haven't brought and probably never will) took for a few tries before I could complete it, but grenade spam is still there which is one of my biggest turn offs

Anyway, after I completed it I did end up with three to four set pieces and several weapon upgrades.  Unless you have the DLC then I don't see a reason to come back
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/21/16 Edition on: October 24, 2016, 02:09:09 PM
I finished Mafia 3 and while the game was okay it's not worth the current price.  I ignored much of the side missions and concentrated on the main story line.   I spent the majority of my time with ESO and I had a ton of fun again. 
22  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Movie trailer catch all on: October 24, 2016, 12:53:54 PM
In a Valley of Violence

Ethan Hawke
John Travolta

It's a western..  Looks good to me...  The trailer gives away to much btw
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (October 23, 2016) on: October 24, 2016, 12:15:57 AM
Nada I'll pick up Titanfall when the price drops
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 10/21/16 Edition on: October 21, 2016, 11:24:08 AM
Will try to play some more Mafia 3 and hopefully some Overwatch if I can get my nephews off my XB1 long enough for me to play.   Going to try out ESO since the One Tameriel update has rolled out to the consoles


What's on your gaming agenda

Yup.  I can't wait to see this.

http://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadredemption2/

Fall 2017, PS4 and XB1 (sadly, not listed for PC)

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

I'm sure it will hit PC and Scorpio in 2017, right?

Of course.  They want to get that second-wave money of people double dipping like they did for GTA V.

Also, kind of sad that they called it Red Dead Redemption 2, instead of changing up the last name again.  Red Dead Retribution?  Red Dead Revenge?  Red Dead Resurrection?  Red Dead Risen?  Red Dead Ranchhand?  Red Dead Repoman?  Red Dead Rumbleinthebronx?  

Yes makes me think it's a sequel

Actually, I'm leaning towards prequel dealing with Dutch's gang

It's the weekend, so what's on your agenda.  I'm planning on getting some more time with Mafia 3.  The game play is really repetitive for taking over districts, but the story is compelling enough to keep me playing.   More Overwatch as I try to get more of the Halloween skins.   
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia 3 Confirmed - More info @ Gamescom - Trailer Added on: October 10, 2016, 12:04:33 PM
So I went in and brought it although 2K didn't release review copies apparently there was a massive day 1 patch.   Anyway, I played most of the weekend and unlocked all three Underbosses and captured their 3 zones and I'm starting on my 4th zone now

First the bad

I'm playing on the XB1 and this game has some bad graphic glitches at time.   Sometime the rain looks great, but other times it can wash everything out.  There are other weird anomalies that I'm sure will be patched

Be prepared to drive around ALOT.   You'll be traveling to the Bayou a great deal to handle mission for your Underbosses and their Lieutenants to increase their earning and their loyalty.  Seriously some of those trips are extremely long running into the 3-5 minute range to get there.  If you happen to die on a mission be prepared to run back from the closest safe house

The AI can be pretty weak at times, but this could be tied to the difficulty.  I'm playing on the default medium and I've seen the AI totally ignore me even if I'm in their line of sight.

Police chase AI can be a little bit too good, but I've learned that jumping the into any body of water will save your bacon 9 times out of 10


Now the good

Gunplay feels good in this game.  While the AI can appear to be stupid at times, but in a gun fight they will flank you.   You just can't sit on one place and snipe

Default driving works for me.   I tried the simulation and it was a challenge I didn't need, so I set back to the default

Atmosphere of game is excellent.  Example I just finished a mission, but was being pursued by the Dixie Mafia.  I ran into a store for a health kit in the Bayou, but it was Whites Only.  The owner told me to get out, but I pushed him out the way which led to him calling the police.  The Dixie Mafia and the Police are now swarming this store.   I actually had to use one of my Marker to get a crew of Vito's men to show up to help me get out.  It was pretty intensive and fun.  Btw, the owner of the store ended up getting some buckshot from my sawed off

Story and they way it's being told is fucking awesome.  Its being shown as sort of a documentary.   I actually have an idea of where its going, but I won't spoil anything with my speculations


Lastly, touching on atmosphere again.  Hanger 13 didn't pull any punches with setting they touch on some subjects that might make people feel uncomfortable and this is certainly a game I wouldn't let a child play unless they can understand the subject matter.   Besides racism this game touches on feminism, sex and drug use.

Right now I'm giving this game a 7 out of 10

Oh jztemple your complaint about running back to stash cash will be addressed once you unlock a certain underboss

33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 10/7/16 on: October 07, 2016, 02:34:58 PM
After watching several live streams of Mafia 3 I decided to take the plunge after all, so I'll be playing along with some Battleborn which I am finding  fun again and Overwatch



What do you have planned for this weekend
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (Oct 2, 2016...late edition) on: October 06, 2016, 01:57:39 PM
Nada it was going to be Mafia 3 but the lack of review copies has made me wary.  I'll wait for reviews
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia 3 Confirmed - More info @ Gamescom - Trailer Added on: October 02, 2016, 08:10:29 PM
2K isn't sending out review copies for this game.  That spells trouble in my book.  Will be waiting on reviews prior to purchasing
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 9/30/16 Edition on: September 30, 2016, 10:34:01 AM
I'll be playing WoW mainly and will be DMing a one shot D&D game for a few teens that got interested in playing after watching Critical Role.   They've never played so I'm going to show them the ropes and they can continue with one of them taking over DMing.  I don't have to time to commit to long term Campaign


Will also binge watch Luke Cage on Netflix
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Whatchu buyin' this week, Willis? (Sept 25, 2016) on: September 26, 2016, 01:47:14 PM
Nada.. I'll pick up Xcom 2 on the XB1 someday
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 9/23/16 Edition on: September 23, 2016, 01:20:28 PM
Maybe some WoW if not that I'll try to get in some Bioshock Remastered on the PC. 


Anyway, what's on your agenda

Hate rubber band ai.
