1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/26/16 Edition on: Today at 11:01:09 AM
Mostly WoW as the Invasion XP is just to good at moment.  I've leveled 4 alts to 100 just on Invasion XP.  Might sneak in some Overwatch but might love affair with that game is almost at a end
What do you have planned?
2  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/19/16 Edition on: August 19, 2016, 12:58:07 PM
it's plenty of WoW for me with some Overwatch thrown in for good measure.  Those Invasion are great XP for leveling alts. 


What do you have plan for this weekend

It looks ok but I just laugh at this kind of thing.  We don't even understand species on our own planet - why would we be able to understand aliens?

Amen

New Gamescom Trailer  If you hate spoilers I wouldn't watch as it shows what happens and why Clay goes after the mob
5  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] Suicide Squad on: August 16, 2016, 11:53:52 AM
Saw it and mostly enjoyed it.  Problems with the story telling hurt it badly.  Also, they made most of the Suicide Squad into sort of heroes to make the likable to the viewing audience, but most of the them in the comics are sociopaths and without remorse.  Honestly, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Alfrie Woodard carried this movie.  Also, to a lesser extent Jared Leto who I think actually did a good job as the Joker

Its the weekend and hopefully between weekend chores you'll get a chance to do some gaming.  I have WoW lined up (damn, game has its hooks into me again) and more of Overwatch as I try to grind for some more of the timed exclusive Olympics skins that can't be brought with in-game currency


What are you planning to play

I'm shocked at how good it looks for version 0.0.7.  This is pretty feature complete for such an early build!

Ron I think you need to arrange a visit to write a story about this game and maybe get more info   drool
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/5/16 - Suicide Squad Edition on: August 05, 2016, 11:44:04 AM
Despite the negative critic reviews I'm planning to see Suicide Squad on Saturday or Sunday, but I'llo be playing WoW with some Overwatch unless Blizzard gets hit with ANOTHER DDoS attack

Gabriel Knight Sins of the Father.  I had no previous experience with this series, but I picked this up because I wanted something new to play. Loved the game
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 7/29/16 Edition on: July 29, 2016, 10:26:54 AM
My love affair with Overwatch is coming to an end I think, so I will be playing some WoW till August 1st when my subscription runs out.   Might boot up Red Dead Redemption too

What are you playing this weekend?
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (7/24/2016) on: July 25, 2016, 02:08:10 PM

13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 7/22/16 Edition on: July 22, 2016, 10:37:11 AM
Probably will be more Overwatch with a great deal of time playing Ana.  Will try to get in some more Red Dead Redemption too


What's on your agenda for this weekend. 
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 7/15/16 Edition on: July 15, 2016, 01:38:38 PM
Still engrossed with Overwatch and still replaying Red Dead Redemption on the XB1.  Probably will mainline Stranger Things on Netflix too


Whats on tap for you
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Hell froze over and Blizzard made a new IP] Overwatch on: July 12, 2016, 05:32:39 PM
New hero revealed today Ana support sniper.  If you have the PC version you can play her on Test now

Ah cool, thanks for the reply  icon_biggrin Yeah I was hoping to move more into hosting, rather than renting. How much RAM and CPU is necessary to run Minecraft and CS:GO?  icon_cool

I think CS: GO would be the more intensive of the two, so you would probably want that max for that type of server.  Here's a reddit  thread discussing it https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/2zkq2q/server_requirements_to_host_a_csgo_server/

Waiting on reviews for Necropolis: A Diabolical Dungeon Delve.  I'm a fan of Harebrained Studios and typically these type of games don't appeal to me but I like the art style and the humor of the game.
18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 7/8 edition on: July 08, 2016, 03:30:47 PM
Overwatch and with Red Dead Redemption now being backwards compatible on the XB1 I might just play my copy for nostalgia sake
19  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pokemon Go on: July 07, 2016, 11:41:08 AM
Is now available in the US and for those uninitiated with this game its a AR game about catching Pokemon.  Apparently, any caught Pokemon can't be used in battles against other players yet, but it's supposed to be coming.  You can train you Pokemon in the gym

Anyone looking to try this?
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: "Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?" on: July 07, 2016, 10:01:56 AM
I have all three on Steam, but I think I will double dip as the XB1 has become my main gaming device.  I just can't bring myself to set down at my desk to play PC games that much anymore
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 7/1/16 US Independence Day Edition on: July 01, 2016, 11:43:49 AM
What are you planning to play to celebrate throwing off the yoke of King George's reign.   Plenty of Overwatch for me and I'm starting to get the WoW itch again  crybaby

Competitive mode and balance patch out for the XB1 finally smile

From what I've read the Torb nerf is not in yet, just the McCree and Widowmaker ones from the PC version.  I'm not sure I'd want to try ranking in comp play as the torbtornado will be massive.  Not that sure it matters in the end as I imagine my rating will be something like 25 or so.

Otter saw your two invites last night.  My nephew was playing on my account briefly before we started his party.   I'll be on tonight hopefully.  Btw, not sure I want to do season yet.

Plenty of Overwatch for me.

We're back.   

Anyway, its been plenty of Overwatch for me.  I'll probably play some Civ V too
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2016 Full games list/Live coverage thread on: June 13, 2016, 06:13:06 PM
Nothing really excited me from MS conference.  I guess Project Scorpio and depending on price I might upgrade. 


I was holding out hope they would reveal a new Mechwarrior game.  Shame they are letting their FASA properties languish
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 6/10/16 on: June 13, 2016, 12:37:49 PM
I played mostly Overwatch and started up a Civ 5 game with some fairly aggressive AI

29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 6/10/16 on: June 10, 2016, 03:12:13 PM
Probably going to be a mixture of Overwatch and Battleborn.   I really wasn't a fan of Overwatch, but once I started playing something clicked.  Anyway, it will probably be plenty of that this weekend

Holy hell, I am just awful at this game.

I've tried all the classes, and am pretty much an abject failure across the board.  Most of the time I can't even tell what the hell happened, I'm just staring at an "Eliminated by" screen before I can even blink...usually accompanied by a kill-cam of someone sniping me from across the map. When I play a damage class, I consider a game a success if I happen to get a single kill. Yeah, I'm that guy. I "get" how all the classes work...I just flat-out suck at them when playing against real people.

While I'm sure this is more forgiving that other games in the genre, I'm reasonably sure that I just don't have the twitch reflexes or patience to have even the smallest measure of success. I'm going to stick with it for a few days (told myself I have to give it at least 6 hours if I'm going to spend $40), but I'm not expecting much.

Iím with you Gratch.  Thatís how I was in TF2.  Iím seriously thinking of getting this (for PS4).  Iíve watched all the videos and read all the reviews.  Iím not an online gamer but damn did I ever have tons of fun playing TF2, even though I sucked big time.

Does this game have a practice mode against the computer?  Or at least a tutorial where I can try out all the heroes before I go live online to end up 0-48?  Lol.  I do like the ďteamĒ aspect of this.

Decisions... decisions. 

Thanks.


Hey Shifty and yes. I actually play that mode when I'm trying to get used to a new hero

I'd be much happier if teams could only have one of a certain hero so that I don't run into 3 Toby's and a Bastion.  I can see why Blizzard didn't do that as Overwatch is a more friendly game and they don't want players to be locked out of their favorite character.


The anwer to that scenario is everyone goes tank with a healer (lucio) and clean out the point.  Problem is that people loathe to change and continue to rush the point solo
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Volition - Agents of Mayhem on: June 06, 2016, 04:38:41 PM
With E3 around the corner I guess new games announcement will start rolling out the closer we get.  Today it's Agents of Mayhem   guess we won't be seeing a new Saint's Row for awhile

Quote from: Bullwinkle on June 06, 2016, 05:49:13 AM

I'll tell you one aspect of this game that I think doesn't quite click is the voting at the end.  Play of the game is nice (though I only pulled it off early in the beta), but then you vote on members of your team or the other team.  I have never voted for the other team.  They throw up some stats, but the thing goes by so quickly that it's hard to parse them all.  Rarely, I'll remember someone on my team who did something (healed me or gave me some armor or something), but usually, I'm just blindly clicking a button (or voting for myself).  What the hell is this supposed to actually do or inspire or be about?  It's just kind of useless.

Typically, I'll just vote for the support guys cause the play of the game nevers really recognize them if they don't get an impressive kill.  Last night I got play of the game using D.Va and only reason why I got it was the person playing Mercy kept me alive on the point.  He/She was masterful as the other team kept trying to take her down.   It was truly awesome.  I voted for Mercy at the end.   

Play of the game needs to be fixed
34  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/7/16) on: June 06, 2016, 10:04:15 AM
Sherlock Holmes is a strong possibility


Also, I don't think Guilty Gear is coming to the XB1.  The Wiki page makes this an PS exclusive 
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 6/3/16 Edition on: June 03, 2016, 01:32:50 PM
Mainly, Overwatch and Battleborn on the XB1.  What do you have on tap?

Yeah he sucks!  I did just notice another XB1 crewmember playing the practice area of Overwatch so perhaps we will add another to the team soon.

So Genji then?

More like D.Va or Lucio  Tongue  Saw your invite last night, but was about to head to bed.  I'll be up for teaming up tonight.  I think I have a grasped of most of the characters I like

Still playing Battleborn but it's bleeding players badly.  Sad as I love the game and I have no interest in Overwatch.  Just don't see the appeal, but my taste in games have changed lately


Anyway, I'll probably will be switching gears soon from Battleborn
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - Memorial Day Weekend 2016 edition (5/27) on: May 28, 2016, 01:02:06 AM
Battleborn

Played mostly Battleborn since it was Double XP weekend.
