Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor certainly

Maybe some Destiny, but the warts are starting to show to me..  Tired of running the same bounties and Strikes are getting to that point and I have no long term interest in pvp.   


The ALCS is starting today (weather permitting or tomorrow) so I will be engaged in baseball. Go O's!!!!!

There is still forms of healing, and I think there was still a healing spell in the Spirit spell track.

However, most demos don't show it, instead focusing on those methods other health replacing buffs like barrier and limited health potions.

I'm interested to know how deep the Keep will go, whether it has choices for minor characters and encounters. Stuff that definitely doesn't affect the overall plot, but otherwise can be small callbacks to previous games.

yes

What's the difference between interrogating a regular orc and a 'worm'.  Is it just that 'worms' can give weaknesses?

Also, all the weaknesses seem pretty vague so far.

But I've restarted about 5 times so I'm still not very far.  Just got done with the 'interested party' mission.

Regular guys will only give you name and location

Worms, Dead Worms , Maps & Captains will give strengths and weakness

The combat in this game is so good it's ridiculous.  I'm about half way through main missions and I've done a ton of side content so I'm at the bottom tier of the P ability tree.  I am flying around huge groups, cutting off heads, shadow striking, turning allies, all in one group.  They nailed it with the combat in this game.  AC just got owned.

Yeah, AC might be in trouble.  I have no doubts it will do well in the sales, but will be trashed if the fight mechanics beat or come close to the level of excellence in this game.  This is the first game where I don't feel like I am fighting to the game and if I fail I can't blame the controls.

92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 01, 2014, 06:45:45 PM
Loot patch is live

Quote
Summary:
With this patch, we address some widely-discussed concerns with how Engrams are earned and claimed. Strikes have become more rewarding, and the rewards gained from them are more predictable. Also affected is the rotation of maps that appear in the Crucible.

Cryptarch

    Legendary (purple) engrams will always produce a Legendary quality item or higher
        Note: Legendary engrams that exist in your inventory will change to Rare quality items when the patch is applied. However, decoding these engrams will still produce the same results as before
    Rare (blue) engrams will always produce a Rare quality item or higher
        Chance for Legendary gear increased
    Materials: Ascendant Shards and Ascendant Energy promoted to Legendary quality (from Rare quality)


Rewards

    Rare (Blue) and Legendary (Purple) Engram drops added to the potential rewards for:
        Vanguard: Tiger Strike Playlist
        Daily Heroic Missions (first time per day)
        Weekly Heroic Missions (first time per week)
    Known issues
        When selecting a higher difficulty for daily missions, XP Bonus not show in the reward display
        You will still get the XP bonus, you just won't see it in the UI

 
Crucible

    Reduced time limit on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash from 15 to 12 minutes, bringing them in line with non-vehicle maps in those playlists
    Lowered weighting on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash so they appear less often in those playlist

Anyone have a nemesis called "The Biter"?
This guy was hilarious because he was unable to talk because he had on a metal Hannibal Lecter mask. The Biter could only grunt, laugh maniacally, and make strange noises. Best nemesis so far and a tough bastard.

No, but I did get a message that someone avenged one of my defeats this morning of a nemsis, so I'm not sure if this meant someone playing the game avenged me or one of the other captains killed a nemsis
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/360/Ps3/Ps4] Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on: October 01, 2014, 11:18:02 AM
Yeah, I am pretty happy with this purchase while I'm done with the AC series I love Arkham and now this game.   The nemsis system is awesome and pretty cool to see two captains fight it out for position.  The death system actually makes sense in this game and works well with the story.  Again, I can see the heavy combat getting old , but I am having fun


-edit - just found out the Nemsis system isn't present in the 360 and PS3 version.

booted this up this morning prior to heading out for work.  You can see a lot Assassin Creed/Batman in this game.  I've already took down two captains I think just by chance as they seem to wander a lot. 

Anyway, I am happy with the purchase

Same here, minus the taking down two captains.  I'm most interested in playing this as a quasi-stealth game, although I'm thinking this will be very difficult to do considering the amount of enemies and I'm guessing it wasn't designed to be played that way.  At any rate, I'll try and see how successful I can be playing that way if I focus on taking abilities that are geared toward a stealth-style gameplay.  I seem to want every game to be Splinter Cell, even if it isn't designed to be.   icon_neutral

I listen to TotalBiscuit podcast this morning and he had a review build and he indicated that some mission require stealth as a condition, so this should please you.  Also with perks you might be able to make this happen.  He stressed that this a heavy focused combat game and if you don't like that mechanic you might want to hold off on purchasing

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.   Anyway, I like the game just wish loot dropped more frequently like D3

Joystiq does award half stars, so it's more nuanced than you think. On the other hand, I agree that Metacritic is a blight on the industry. If it were me making something like that, I'd turn it into something like Rotten Tomatoes. Either you give a game a thumbs up, or you give it a thumbs down. Final score is the percentage of total votes that are thumbs up. The current review systems are garbage anyway, especially since the gaming press can't agree on a single scale. Even a 1-10 scale means different things for each publication, and even between reviewers in the same publication. It's a mess, and games with a niche audience suffer the most for it.

This whole gamersgate issue is making me re-evaluate my reliance on reviews by journalist and sights like metacritic.   
Not to turn this into a Gamersgate thread, but have you read past the hype? I thought the same way, but then did research and found out there was nothing to the original claim.

Hype ..  Yes, but there is still an issue nonetheless and lets not go there here, please.

Oddly enough, i didn't.  I did get a ! on the Strike Playlist showing Level 24, though.  Anway, at least I know where it is.  I'm still confused why forgeforsaken has a 5th space for an icon on the map and I do not.  The icons are Queen, Crucible, Weekly Strike and Daily Story (can't remember the order) and then what is the other?
.

Queen's Wrath Bounty.    Just turn in one of her bounties and it will unlock Oh that should be Nightfall the 5th one
112  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 23, 2014, 11:59:20 AM
so the Queen's bounites equals

Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Handcannon
Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Scout Riflt
Collect items from Fallen
Run two strikes and kill specific mobs

So, after all this is done a special mission is supposed to open?

So the black market dude allowed you to buy a strange coin with glimmer this morning. Then exploiters, as exploiters will do, realized if you switched characters you could get another one. Then create and delete characters if you have a slot available and you can do it over and over and over...

You can no longer buy a strange coin from the black market dude.

So I hit 15 and have unlocked the subclass.

I do I now have to unlock everything again for the new class? Is the idea that I play through this again with the same character t ype but with different abilities or is the unlocking expedited because I'm already 15?

Yes, once you unlock the suib-class you need to level it up.  One thing to increase it is only equip when you turn in quest and bounties.   Remember XP goes to your currently equipped gear and this includes your spec

btw,  once you unlock the sub class all other subclasses are unlocked.  So you can start a new toon and select a different subclass

Really need to appear on the mini-map or glow like legendaries like Diablo.
