It's a terrible thing. A huge number of people were trolled and continue to be trolled. The threats are embarrassing, the advertising bans are embarrassing, the ethics conversation is embarrassing. Anyone who actually understands how this started and what it's become should rightfully think that both sides, the 4chan trolls and the hashtaggers who continue to think this is a real issue, are a bunch of tools.
 I think you are misusing both sides there, as the trolls and hashtaggers are on the same side.

Not exactly. The trolls started the whole thing. The overwhelming majority of people using the hashtag are the ones who were fooled by the trolls into thinking it was a real thing. That includes #gamergate and the #notyourshield tag which got a lot of use as well.

They are still essentially allied though and are on the same side, the other side would be the so called SJWs, along with female game developers and journalists.


Sorry, I didn't mean opposing sides, just the segment acting in bad faith and the segment who believes that gamergate is some real thing.

Ugh, that's so ghetto (the widescreen thing).

I'm glad you seem to be enjoying it, Teggy. I'll continue pressing onward.

I could totally see people not being into it, especially the trial and error stuff and some of the jankiness. However, it's what I was expecting and the type of game I was in the mood for.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/360/PS3/PS4/PC]The Evil Within on: October 15, 2014, 05:06:03 PM
The whole game. Rumor is it was done to help with framerate. They say things are supposed to show up in there but I haven't seen anything. Maybe subtitles, but I'm not playing with subtitles.

In chapter 5 and the game is getting creepier and creepier. Definitely a lot of trial and error here, but I'm just rolling with it. Kind of funny after you figure out an encounter you'll get a loading screen message that would have been very helpful before that encounter. Also have come up against some bugginess at checkpoints, one that basically got me past one tough situation by accident.

And holy crap (chapter 4 enemy spoiler)
Spoiler for Hiden:
enemies with invisibility powers!

I went ahead a preordered with a pro controller. We'll see how I do.
Even if the game doesn't click with you, that pro controller will be awesome.  I love mine.  Very comfortable and incredibly long battery life between charges.  My PS4 controllers drain so fast compared to the pro controller.   

I honestly don't like the stick above the buttons on the gamepad, so I'm a little worried about how the pro controller will feel. But I figure it will be better for this type of game than than the gamepad.

Played the first 2 chapters and am liking it so far. Definitely has that Resident Evil 4 feel - creepy, but not too scary, with some dodgy voice acting. It relies a lot more on stealth though and has a character upgrade system in addition to weapon upgrades.

Ammo is very scarce, so it definitely looks to be more of a true survival horror game. I died quite a few times getting the hang of things and there does seem to be a bit of trial and error involved. If you get in a bad situation, you're probably going to die.

Part of me is just glad to not be playing an open world game for the first time in a while.

I want this deal for digital editions - I have no interest in swapping MCC in and out - it will be played for quite some time, and likely never traded in.

I just don't get it.

If you buy 3 games digitally between September 4 and Nov. 30th you'll get 20K points. Not as good, but something.

For a company trying so hard to transition to digital, though, it doesn't make a ton of sense. It's probably better margins for what they sell via Amazon at least.

Anyone else have this problem?

Outplayed and outlasted.  Romo did a hell of a job and didn't blow it.  Too bad he seems to have infected Russell with a late-game choke.  

The game shouldn't have been anywhere near that close. Seahawks should have had max 6 points if not for the bonehead plays on special teams and the botched snap.

That's me to a T, too, Teggy (ta da).

Bayonetta 1 never quite clicked with me, but I enjoyed it for a bit.  I'm hoping I get into the rhythm more this time around.

Yeah, I tried Bayonetta on 360 and failed miserably.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Bayonetta 2 on: October 13, 2014, 02:51:52 PM
Yeah I feel like I am going to have to pick this up, maybe trade for it. I am terrible at these type of games, but it seems like it will be worth a go, especially since it includes Bayonetta 1 in the package.

I remember some issues with driving, but that's about it.

The ladder thing may have been a minor frustration.

Yeah, the driving is really odd. I still haven't figured out the magic to making a turn easily. Some of the cars seem to have the turning radius of a Mack truck unless you are moving at high speed.

I happen to love 3D platformers so I really like the traversal in the game, but it seems the developers just ignored things many other games have figured out, like sticking to a handhold unless the player manually jumps off.

Don't get me wrong, I still thing the game is really fun and clever. It's a kids game, but there are references in it that people under 30 probably wouldn't even understand (Starsky and Hutch, Cagney and Lacey, etc.) There's just some content that has the potential to be too frustrating to bother with.

By the way, what is the point of all the random costumes you can get, like Lagney or random fisherman guy or whatever?

Well here I am, with another thread necro as I work on some backlog. Enjoying the game but do all Lego games have such awful controls?  Jumping on to a ladder requires a perfect angle, the character randomly falls when doing the hanging walk, the character sticks at the top of of a flat topped fence and then falls off, etc.  I tried doing one of the timed free runs and I almost threw my gamepad. Won't be doing any of those events.

Been hearing a lot of bad cancer stories lately. My wife's former boss just got diagnosed with lung cancer that has spread to the brain and it's not looking good. My brother and mother are cancer survivors (thyroid and bladder, respectively) and both had fair warning, whether it be visual or via discomfort. These stories are changing my expectations of cancer, making it even more scary than it already is.

$7.49 Metacritic score - 75/61 Critic/user

93% positive in 191 reviews

Funny how different the Metacritic user and Steam reviews are.

Nah, Steam only allows for "recommended/not recommended".

Although the Steam reviews do seem to read more positive than a 75.

Finally got around to this. I was really surprised how short it was. I finished it in 2 days, although I wasn't going for full completion. Certainly compared to Watch_Dogs which I just finished and thought was probably too long. It seemed like it could have used a third island like the other Infamous games. Maybe they spent too much time working on the all different power sets.

I also hated a bunch of the boss battles, but I thought the way they managed the different powers overall was really impressive.

Infamous 1 is still my favorite in the series because of all of the platforming and the mission design. They was more in Second Son than Infamous 2, but for the most part it was just "go here, kill everything".

Hark!  I made level 3 for FWC and no AR to be found. Please advise.   crybaby

You don't automatically get an auto rifle for getting to level 3, you just get a random legendary. FWC does not carry an AR, so it's unlikely (impossible? not sure about that) you'd get one because the random is often from the stock of the faction.

The guardian faction has an auto rifle.

By the way those crying gifs are pictures of Maggie Simpson in Tapatalk. Odd.

I am very curious about Alien but am going to wait for impressions. Plus I am hoping for an excuse to play backlog since Borderlands and Sunset Overdrive are coming up fast, plus I need to decide which, if any ill be buying out of Far Cry, Dragon Age and GTA.
