41  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [TV]Scream - The Series on: July 08, 2015, 12:16:41 PM
Since I like a good slasher movie (my guilty pleasure)  I decided to stream the first episode of the new MTV series.  It's definitely a YA show with all the familiar tropes.   The first episode held my attention as the show is very self aware and even has one of the guys explaining how it will go ala Randy from the movies.   If the show goes with the American Horror Story Anthology as each season a self contained story it might work.   Stretching it out with the same killer(s) across multiple season will kill this show in my opinion

Nada...   I did acquire a copy of the Elder Scrolls Online for the XB1 for 10 bucks ( Mom and Pop shop was closing ).

You in a guild?  Thinking about jumping back in myself.  Been hankering for a MMO

Yep, a really good one.  The Returners on Coeurl, rank 8 (max), Free Company house with all the amenities (crafting vendors & stations, retainers, chocobo stables, menders, aether wheel, etc.).  Shoot me an tell if you jump on and I can get you invited.  I'm Bayard Elderwood.

One thing to be aware of before jumping in.  Squeenix made the interesting decision to gate all of the Heavensward expansion content - including the three new jobs (Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist) - behind the story.  It makes sense, seeing as how this is a very story-focused game (it is still Final Fantasy, after all), but will require lots of work before you ever see any of the new stuff...there's around 150 main story quests that will likely take upwards of 80-100 hours to finish.  It's a really good story and a fantastic journey, but some folks are pissed off they can't immediately jump right to the expansion content.  YMMV


I have no issue soloing.   My Dragoon is in the low 30's so it will be awhile before I see much new content

What are you playing to celebrate throwing off the yoke of English Tyranny



Probably put in some time with Destiny and maybe finish up Pillars of Eternity.  Also Her Story will make the mix


Enjoy the holiday weekend

Game play trailer  currently up on Steam Green Light.   it's getting alot of buzz and the team is in touch with Sony and Microsoft to bring to those respective platforms.  With the buzz this is getting I have a feeling MS and Sony will be competing for exclusive release

This will have Occulus Rift supoort

Nothing..  I can't think of any release that I need to get day one except Halo 5 and Fallout 4.  X-Com 2 and Deus Ex are both on my radar , but I can wait for reviews

Just noticed that we didn't have a thread up so without further ado what are you playing this weekend


I've finished The Witccher 3, so I'm putting time into Massive Chalice for the XB1 and Destiny.  Just playing the expansion stuff.   Might dabble into Her Story which has been recieving excellent reviews
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: June 26, 2015, 04:59:10 PM
Finished last night around lvl 35 and honestly I was ready to put it down.  Game is on of my contender for GOTY so far.   Satisfying ending somewhat..  don't like where Geralt was left but it was satisfying noneheless
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Batman: Arkham Knight (Rocksteady Returns) on: June 25, 2015, 02:23:26 PM
hopefully they'll fix the game the throw some exclusive bonuses or premium dlc for free to the PC crowd.  Game was certainly optimized for console and PS4
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (XB1)Anyone else playing Elite? on: June 23, 2015, 02:35:51 PM
I d/l it but I want to finish The Witcher 3 before I tackle any other game

Bought Batman on the PS4 after seeing the great reviews. I refuse to buy any of the DLC though, since I see WB's attitude towards consumers to be outright hostile and I don't want to reward it.

I want the game, but I will wait to the GOTY edition that will have all the content.  After The Witcher 3 I need an open world break.  So, nothing for me this week
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Fallout 4 on: June 22, 2015, 03:12:01 PM
Game will run 1080p/30 fps across all platform, so PC apparently won't hit 60 which seems odd

55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Post Your Steam Summer Sale Loot Here! on: June 19, 2015, 05:40:39 PM
I'm eyeing Space Rangers HD and if Total War: Attila drops a bit more I might pick that up
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 6/19 on: June 19, 2015, 04:26:55 PM
The Witcher 3... probably going o make the push to the end this weekend as much as I love the game I just want to finish it now,


Been thinking about re-visiting my Sith Juggernaut in SWTOR Onlne

Okay, well, I sent a request to invite you so they're maybe a process

Well, thank you.

I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Hey, here's something, did you send it to BullwinkleJ?  Instead of just Bullwinkle.


EDIT: Nevermind. I got a message from MS seconds ago. Downloading now. Thanks again, Soul!

No problem.. have fun

Oh, I must admit I liked what I saw of Need For Speed.   I'll wait for reviews but it's something that piqued my interest for sure

The Shenmue announcement even crashed kickstarter last night.

Well, its been funded and probably will smash the record at this pace.  Sadly, I'm not a fan of this series but I'm glad this is happening for folks

I guess someone in the Preview program has to invite others into it.

Are there a limited number of invites to give or can you just send it out to anyone?

I'd love to get an invite, if it's possible for anyone.

Bullwinkle I meant to check for you last night to see if I had any invites to give out.  I'll let you know this evening

I think you're on my friends list already
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 11:39:10 AM
Kudos to Sony on getting COD, but I don't think it's a big get as they think.   Anyway, I tried the emulation last night on my XB.  Went to my games and apps Geometry Wars was there waiting for me to download and install.  Installed and the game loaded into the emulator.   Played fine .. I didn't try to stream or take a screen shot. but it was nice to have access to one of my XBLA games.


Now devs have to just give MS premission to allow the game to work with the emulation
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 16, 2015, 12:38:44 AM
Probably going to skip Sony's presser and just watch the replay tomorrow at work
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 10:36:02 PM
this where I mute Ubisoft presser..


Seriously when will they learn just make it about the game and avoid the damn fluff
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 09:25:32 PM
I must admit Star Wars Battlefront looked great on the PS4
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:52:27 PM
Seriously, as much of a fan of soccer that I am hearing about a FIFA game from Pele is less than appealing.  


Pele is measuring stick but Messi is reaching his level... Just needs a few world cup titles lol
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 08:46:00 PM
Wonder if we'll anything about Titanfall 2 or will it appear on Sony's stage with some form of exclusive release?

Good lord, the forced witty banter between the old middle age white guy and young hip black guy was PAINFUL to watch.

Yeah I actually muted that shit out

Oh and bringing early access to a console... 
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2015 on: June 15, 2015, 06:06:55 PM
Only happy to hear about the Xbox backward compatibility.  Nothing else excited me...   

Was hoping for Mechwarrior, honestly, as MS owns the FASA stuff.   They are sitting on money there
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 6/12/15 on: June 12, 2015, 04:39:06 PM
Probably some Witcher 3 and Massive Chalice
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Post Your Steam Summer Sale Loot Here! on: June 12, 2015, 10:32:40 AM
Nothing has sparked an interest yet.  I'm keeping my eye on my Wishlist  nonetheless

Holding an event and not releasing a price point? 

75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Smite on: June 11, 2015, 02:05:41 AM
Smite is coming to the XB1 and I have a beta code..  First come first served.   If you're in the preview program you should also have a code
76  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Netflix] Sense8 on: June 09, 2015, 05:30:12 PM
Yeah, this show is made to binge watch.   The slow build up hurts it a lot.  If I couldn't mainline it like I did I doubt it would have held my attention if t I had to wait on weekly episodes


The orgy scene was a bit gratuitous but it served it purpose cause it showed what can happen when people in the cluster are doing thing sort of similar can be pulled in

I think it worked rather well,  BTW, there is a scene between Will and Lito that is hilarious in the final episode
77  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: June 09, 2015, 02:51:39 PM
So anyone pick this up for the console yet?   Tons of people on Neo-gaf appear to be excited and loving it so far
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/9) on: June 08, 2015, 01:21:49 PM

Watched the first 20 minutes. Thought the premise was really good and then there was a gratuitious and raunchy scene that was so over the top and unnecessary I hit eject.



I understand your decision and if that bothered you then some of the later scenes  in other episodes would have caused the same reaction.  Now saying that...  That scene and others that follow plays into the theme of the series.


It's a very interesting to say the least.

Finished the series and despite the cliche' ending I loved it.
