good for Eurogamer, but I never went to Metacritic anyway.

Btw, Tilt what's your beef with Polygon?  It's one of the few sites outside of GT that I actually like.   I know you stated once they are MS biased (I don't see it), but I'm curious why you would label them shitty

Looks like all other phase three movies have been pushed back to 2017 to allow Spider Man movie to be intergrated
43  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel Phase 3 Updates on: February 10, 2015, 11:41:33 AM
too many threads on the MCU, but since this falls under phase 3 guess which web-slinger is back in the MCU

Sony still holds the rights, but want in on the dollars

Disliking the DLC for Evolve seems really odd and most people who do probably don't even understand what it is exactly or how the game is designed. Evolve's DLC is the least intrusive DLC for a multiplayer I've seen with the exception of skins only DLC like in DOTA.  People are jumping on a bandwagon and it's embarrassing to me to see gamers overreact so much.  Reminds me of everyone freaking out about horse armor prices which was simply cosmetic and didn't matter one bit. Slow game news time so every website ran some sort of hype about DLC ruining everything.  I'm excited for the prospects of extra stuff for this game, especially since it won't split the playerbase in the slightest unlike Battlefield and Call of Duty which many of you play and have paid for DLC repeatedly.  Honestly, the stupid sheep are the people who jumped on the bandwagon of DLC hate based on this game without doing their own research.  There are plenty of games who abuse real money transactions and DLC, Evolve ain't one of them.

Having said that, I will be playing Evolve on XB1 tonight.

Evolve is just the first of many games I refuse to pre-order.  I've basically decided to go pre-order free this year after last year disaapoinments   While Evolve DLC isn't horrendous I just don't like where this is going.

Saying that I will be watching your stream , Hark  icon_razz

Nothing, and for once I'm also hoping that others will choose to go that way, at least when it comes to Evolve. That game is a low point in this industry when it comes to DLC and treating customers like stupid sheep, and hopefully people will see through that and steer clear.

btw, I actually took this stance with Evolve.  The whole DLC thing just turned me off

Anyone has any insight on why?

I don't recall the specifics why but Amazon is not an official retailer of Nintendo hardware.


Thanks... did some research and I see that they had a undocumented fallout  back in 2012 or so.  I guess I'll get it from Best Buy

Some tips from one of the Devs posted at Polygon

One that stood out to me was obvious:

Quote
On a related note: Torchlight is an extremely important mechanic in the game, and it’s not as simple as it may first seem. The torch starts at 100 percent and then dwindles as you move through the dungeon. The brighter the light, the safer the heroes are and the less stress they take.  As the torch dims, monsters fight harder and heroes take more stress.

But wait! The darker it is, the better the loot drops. Doing "dark runs" can actually be quite profitable. It comes at a risk,

What other game would allow you as a player to send one of your best heroes into a temple to pray, only to have him come out and tell you he's leaving to pursue a Holy Quest. Bye bye, I had a vision. Good luck. I'm outa here.

You just sit stairing at your screen going "Wait... What?"

That is both insane and awesome at the same time.

This happen to me as well with my highest lvl Crusader....    crybaby

It doesn't matter how awesome and "complete" (it isn't) Darkest Dungeon is. Early Access should not be part of this list.

Use you camping skills wisely

I've only tried camping once, but I was ambushed while doing so and ended up in much worse shape than before I camped. It felt like bad use of pressure mechanics.

The Vestal (Cleric) Has a camping skill that decreases nighttime attacks, but cost 5 points to use
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] [Kickstarter] Darkest Dungeon on: February 02, 2015, 12:37:11 PM
So after the tweaking patch the game is alot more manageable.  I can do a short dungeon and come out with most of my people reasonably sane and unstressed


Things I've learned.

Don't let the kleptomanic open chest.  They have a tendency to keep the stuff
Pay attention to your group positioning and find the spot they like to be in
Juggling is freaking awesome and can make hard fights much easier.   
Use you camping skills wisely
Carry plenty of torches and don't let the meter get below half

This game is brutal but in a good way with som rebalancing it will be awesome. I've restarted after messing up my initial game. I think you need to husband your funds and upgrade slowly. Also, failing a dungeon sucks as you lose resources and potentially any loot your might have gained

I like the stress system but it needs to be toned down just a tad

59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] [Kickstarter] Darkest Dungeon on: January 30, 2015, 10:14:59 PM
This game is good hard.  I got my ass kicked on the first dungeon and had to retreat on the first quest after losing my crusader and everyone else close to death.  Currently my female cleric is abusive and flogging herself in the temple and my Plague Doctor and Highwayman are working off their issues in the Tavern.  I recruited three new heroes, but I need to drag one of my current guys along to make up the difference... Probably the Cleric.   Feel free to watch my stream if you're remotely interested in this game

I seem to have met my match in Act V with Adria: The Witch (aka Spider-Woman). Any ideas? I've tried everything in my L54 Crusader toolbox, and seem wholly unable to bring her health meter below maybe 70%. Then the stupid heart slugs (or whatever) fill up the screen. If she has a weakness, I can't find it.

Nobody on bnet seems to join open multiplayer games anymore (presumably the only people left playing are L70 players now) so it doesn't seem like I can get any help on this that way.

I guess I'll Google it but thought I'd ask in case anyone here even remembers playing through Acts anymore.  icon_smile

I guess I knew sooner or later D3 would go back to pissing me off and frustrating me. Nothing like a love-hate relationship.  icon_neutral

Or have one of your lvl 70 buddies jump into your game to help

it took me next to no time at all for my console character to be far more powerful than my pc character.  Such a huge gear quality difference for me personally.

I'm the exact opposite.  I find my PC characters and gear more powerful except my season 1 Crusader who I can't seem to play that well

Quote from: Strafe Team
Risks and challenges

In 2014, around 60 million people died on Earth. There is a low but persistent risk the STRAFEŽ team may also suffer untimely brutal deaths and be unable to deliver the game to backers.

Beyond that, there is risk in meeting the release date. STRAFEŽ is on target for early 2016. However, STRAFEŽ will never be released unfinished, so there is potential for a delay due to unforeseen extenuating circumstances.

STRAFEŽ can say with absolute certainty that North Korea will not prevent this release, no matter how extreme or legitimate their threats.

I have a pretty high tolerance level for the level of depravity in GTA series, but Trevor made me very uncomfortable.   

Spoiler for Trevor

Spoiler for Hiden:
The is a cut scene that can occur if you switch to Trevor where it is strongly implied he raped Floyd.   When presented with the option of killing of Trevor I did it without second thought
