Looks good.   Seems like a Gears of War clone which isn't a bad thing in my opinion.

Titanfall genre innovation #7 - voice prompts that are actually useful!

In CoD or Battlefield, the only useful voice prompts I can think of are:
"Point Alpha/Beta/Charlie is being taken!"
"You/They have all the points!"

In Titanfall, in addition to the above, you get things like:
"You captured the point, but there are still enemies in the area"
"Your Titan is engaging an enemy pilot/Titan"
(when in a Titan) "You are under attack by an enemy pilot/Titan"
(when in a Titan) "You are outnumbered!"

It seems like such a simple simple thing, but it's such a refreshing change to have the voiceovers actually be welcome and useful instead of something you almost entirely ignore.


In hardpoint used burn card that gave extra points for pilot kills

"Hey we're here for the hardpoints not pad you kill count"

Camping on a hill sniping

"What are you doing?  Get into the fight. Hardpoints not pilot kills is the objective"

Rodeo a  enemy titan

"Smooth moves, now bring it down"

Fighting two titans

"You're outnumbered two to one.  Best to evade"

Soul, you might want to check your spam folder like I just did.  Still no beta key, but it's amazing what some companies can do for your penis these days.

I did check.  I also had several emails about my WoW account being banned for gold selling and a nice lady from Russia that wants to marry me..

I'll continue  to say it MS's hubris cost them this gen just like it initially cost Sony last gen.  Sony certainly learned from that and I can only hope MS learns the same lesson.  Don't take your player base for granted.  We gamers are a picky punch

Btw, I really want a PS Vita... I just can't justify the cost and I'm afraid that I'll buy it and hardly play it

watched part of this on Amazon during lunch..  Seems okay,  so far and the French woman is easier to understand with sub-titles on.  Haven't finished it yet, but as long as they don't do 26 episodes and keep it between 8-12 I could watch this

Why is it such a big deal? Doesn't it just mean you have to pay what the merchandise costs? We pay taxes on everything here in Denmark that we import, and have been forever I'd say.

There's a loophole in our tax code where online retailers that don't have a physical presence in that state don't have to collect that state taxes.  You're actually supposed to pay it when you file, but many don't

Maryland when be joining that growing list of states where Amazon will be collecting taxes... I will weep on that day

Positive thing is that Amazon is opening a huge distribution center at the old GM plant in Sparrowspoint that will employee about 1500 people

Does my Xbone distinguish between different voices?  Or maybe somehow do some magic with the camera to know who is talking?

Or put another way, can I do something up front to make sure my console doesn't obey my 3-year-old's commands?

I don't think so.  Stupid question, but does your 3yr old have a gamertag?

Microsoft made a statement to Gamespot about the unsold stock issue:

"We sold through nearly every unit we could in the holiday period and pulled forward as many units as we could from Q3. However, only some of those shipments were sold into the channel in the final period of the quarter and so there was not time to sell the units through to customers," Dennis said. "These units are now being sold through to customers."

So what they're saying is that the majority of their 900k unsold units had been shipped to retailers before Christmas but didn't get there until January? That sounds highly unlikely to me, largely because even Microsoft wouldn't end up planning their shipments so that they couldn't take advantage of the Christmas shopping. The quote really tells us nothing, but I figured it was worth quoting to at least balance out things a bit.

btw, that the way I read it too and I'm firmly in MS camp.  XB1 is a success but that 900K unsold is a bit glaring to me

Compared to the 3 million number for actual sales released earlier, that means there was 0,9 million units on store shelves at the end of December, unless I'm entirely mistaken.

Okay, thanks Forge and Tilt.  Not sure if this is a good thing or not.  I know the earning reports have to be accurate.

MS has released their Q2 earning reports.  Can someone decipher this

Quote from: MS
   The company sold 7.4 million Xbox console units into the retail channel, including 3.9 million Xbox One consoles and 3.5 million Xbox 360 consoles.

This means sold to stores not to consumers. correct?

just odd, I have auto-signin on and it doesn't do that.  Maybe it's tied to the inability to see you?  It sees her enter and thinks you left? 

Could be.  It seems like Kinect has issues seeing me at times, for whatever reason.  The room it is in is usually fairly dark.

Well you're The Grue .. should be expected.

Alpha invites are going out.   You can sign up here

Looks to be XB1 and maybe 360 only

Shouldn't this be at least Beta by now?

Speculation is that betas invites are tied into pre-orders I know I got one for my Amazon order.  They are calling this an Alpha so they don't have to invite everyone that pre-ordered.. Just speculation at this point

Surprised this wasn't posted yet, but yesterday a DC Appeals Court struck down parts of the FCC Net Neutrality

Quote from: The Verge
A federal appeals court has struck down important segments of the FCC's Open Internet rules, determining that the agency doesn't have the power to require internet service providers to treat all traffic equally. The DC circuit court has ruled on Verizon v. FCC, a challenge to the net neutrality rules put in place in 2010, vacating the FCC's anti-discrimination and anti-blocking policies, though it preserved disclosure requirements that Verizon opposed in other words, carriers can make some traffic run faster or block other services, but they have to tell subscribers.

While all the major carriers have come out and stated nothing will change I can imagine they are finding ways to monetize this and it will affect consumers negatively

After nearly two years of waiting, The Banner Saga is finally out and available for purchase. Here's my review:

Such a beautiful game.

awesome review... too bad I'm have a huge back log, but I'm sure I'll pick this up during the Steam Spring or Summer Sale
158  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: January 14, 2014, 03:06:05 PM
I'm out currently...  I haven't signed up for betas which is a first for me as I like to test these games, but I don't think I can invest into another MMO especially with the guys I normally play with.  We're not called The Wanderers for nothing...

Anyway, unless the forum effect for this is strong I will be skipping or I might pick up on the cheap like I did Defiance.  The only thing this intrigues me is the three way factional warfare and while many of us have fond memories of DAoC I also remember being steam rolled by the over-whelming Albion Zerg.  If they can't figure outa way  to balance fights this game will fail especially if one faction becomes dominant

It happen in DAoC,  Warhammer & WoW and it will happen here too  While WoW is still around battleground were mostly empty until Blizaard started doing ranked fights by iLevel, PVP Gear and PvE Gear.  No one likes to constantly lose

Watched it this weekend.

Clearly the weakest of the 3.

Bane was amazing.  Loved the way he spoke and just about everything about the character.

Anne Hathaway was unnecessary, but did fine.

The whole ending climax 30 or whatever minutes or so is terrible and out of place for the trilogy, but I'd still give the film a good B.


I haven't watched the 2nd movie in a long time so

Spoiler for Hiden:
how did BW/BM hurt his leg?  I don't remember it happening.

And AA has some very VERY good points. There are many finer points in this movie that lead nowhere, but...

Regarding your spoiler

Spoiler for Hiden:
Didn't he jump from like a couple stories up trying to get away from Gotham PD in the end.  I distinctly remember him running off draging his leg while Gordon was telling his son Batman was doing this cause he's a hero
