Also, if you log in this Saturday, May 2nd you'll get a free Iron Man Mark 43 costume.   

Just a reminder...

Looks like this one finally got patched on PC. Now I can actually sit down and play the game without being afraid of losing all my progress.

Or less afraid, at least.

I'm very excited for this, I hope it encourages some other devs to give this type of game another chance.

If they are going to give Mockingbird her own show they at least need to give her some amber sunglasses to wear one time.

I'm sad to say I think this looks terrible. I mean, my main problem is that I remember the previous movies - don't they remember the dinosaur running around San Diego and all the other failures? Yet they do it AGAIN?! And training raptors? It just looks ridiculous.

I take it they didn't actually release "Door KickerZ"?

Given the patch is not to far off I guess I will wait until then to get back to this game. Because I'm going to be dying a lot.

Titan Souls is a strategic, open world, 2D, top-down action-adventure, where the player has only one arrow and can only take one hit. The goal is to defeat the 20 giant monsters called the Titans, which can, just like the player, only take one hit but only have one way to be defeated. During the fight, the player has to figure out how the respective boss behaves and by that find a way to defeat that boss. The difficulty is that the single arrow has to be charged to be shot and afterwards has to be retrieved to be reused, each action only able to be done while the player is standing still, making them an easy target for the bosses.


That just sounds incredibly...not fun.

LOL I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure that game is for someone, just not me.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/14) on: April 13, 2015, 05:07:30 PM
Is the Titan Souls name a play on Dark/Demon's Souls?

Anyway, I don't think I am buying anything. I have GTA for PS4 unplayed already. I will buy Donkey Kong 64 at some point soon but I will probably try to hold off now because I'm knee deep in so many other games.

Quote from: farley2k on April 13, 2015, 01:18:25 PM

I put in a couple hours.  I like the game but I really feel like I am playing a PSX game.   And I really wish they would have worked a bit harder to use the bottom screen.  I know it is a port and the Wii doesn't have it but it is just wasted.  They could show a full map all the time or something simple like that - even that would be an improvement. 

Anyway I still like it but it certainly isn't going to win any awards.

I don't know about that - it's a huge open world RPG with near full voicing on a handheld. Pretty amazing stuff.

But yes, they had a real opportunity to make the menus a lot easier to use and didn't for some reason. One of the more tedious parts of the Wii version is having to open up and drill into the menus and also managing inventory. These tasks would have been perfect for moving to the touchscreen, but they basically just carried over everything as-is.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xenoblade coming to Europe, presumably US on: April 10, 2015, 11:03:39 PM
I put in 3hrs and then had to recharge - is that similar to what other people have experienced? Does having 3D on use a lot more battery? I've switched it off to see what it's like, but I really do like the 3D effect. The new super special 3D isn't perfect, though. It definitely gets in a weird state sometimes where some parts of the image get blurry and I have to readjust the distance from my face to get it to finally kick in correctly.

I probably have an hour or so before I am caught up to where I was in the Wii game.

Looks like they will be offering a limited time $20 offer to move your PC sub to console. I've always thought being able to play an MMO on console would be nice, although I can't imagine dealing with the ESO inventory system unless they have improved it a lot.

Do they still have the issue where you have tons of potions with the same name but slightly different amounts of healing?

I'm all transferred over. I know that this thing was going to be slightly larger and no longer fit my charging cradle, but it's like 3mm larger, and they moved the charging contacts anyway. You think they would have tried...and just to add insult to injury, the stylus is actually shorter now. The new 3D does work better, though.

EDIT: well, I spoke to soon, a bunch of my games won't launch after the transfer. Might have to redownload, which is annoying.

You don't have to redownload anything as long as you did the system transfer AND copied the contents of your SD-card, or alternatively just moved it from one 3DS to the other.

That's exactly what I did but 4 games game in corrupted somehow. I found other people online who had the same problem.

Once I get everything transferred over, are there any issues with selling a used 3DS? I don't know if there's issues with games being tied to a system with the crazy way Nintendo handles licenses.
21  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: NEW 3DS and XL on: April 07, 2015, 01:50:18 AM
Well, I figured I wasn't going to be finishing Xenoblade sitting in front of the Wii U for 100 hours. So I bought a NEW 3DStm. I'm so weak.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: April 05, 2015, 04:41:47 AM
That's surprising, but good to know. I always think I am bad at RPGs because I encounter enemies I can't beat, not thinking maybe I should just come back later.
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: April 05, 2015, 03:17:43 AM
I am a total noob with infinity engine games - is it common to encounter enemies in a map that you are not strong enough to beat and have to return to later? Like the

24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ori and the Blind Forest - a platformer made around the world on: April 03, 2015, 12:00:42 AM
Well, there it is. I couldn't find one blue ball and a keystone, oh well.



In the end I just put my xbox in sleep mode when I was done playing for the time being and didn't play any other games until I was finished. When I completed the game the one save I had was still about 7 hours of playtime, so something must have been really wrong with that save. My total playtime was probably close to 20 hours.

I wish I hadn't had so much trouble with it, but that fact that I stuck with it is a testament to how much I liked playing it. It will definitely be in my GOTY list.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ori and the Blind Forest - a platformer made around the world on: April 01, 2015, 10:26:03 PM
Oh my god I have had it with this game. I had had enough time away from the game after previously losing 5 hours of progress so I picked it up again. I had gotten back to about the place I had left off, which was after completing the Forlorn Ruins. I was exploring some other areas for power-ups before I took on the 3rd section of the game. I went into a cavern where you had to butt slam a pole to block a horizontal laser. On the last slam, the game dropped me below the platform into the area with the laser and blocked by the pole I just slammed down. I was now stuck. I had no other choice than to quit and resume, hoping it picked up my last valid save spot. Instead it put me back at the start of the Forlorn Ruins, about 1.25 hours playtime lost. I guess that's better than 5, but really!

The sad thing is that I really like the game and I want to finish it. But this is just too much.

I wound up buying one of the new fangled 360s after I traded in my slim model toward games for my Xbone. At least free games like this makes that seem less like a silly thing to do.

Finally taking a look around, I realized my mistake  icon_lol

I'm still waiting for Teggy to tell us what his mistake was!?  Tongue

I'm guessing you haven't played it.  He had been playing with no weapons and hadn't picked a set of starting weapons up from the hub.

Strangely he isn't the only person I've seen on forums who made that mistake.

Yeah, basically if I had walked a few steps forward instead of clicking on the shrine I would have found some weapons. I know the game is supposed to be hard, but it wouldn't hurt for them to put in a basic tutorial section. Even the guide doesn't tell you what the stats mean, I had to look that up online.
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: March 25, 2015, 03:38:31 AM
Here was my first experience with Bloodborne (keep in mind that for all intents and purposes I have never played a Souls game). This will just be spoilers for the very beginning of the game:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I moved forward to the first monster and was quickly killed. Not really knowing what was going on I talked to a vendor and couldn't afford anything. I clicked on a shrine and chose to back to the sickroom. I then proceeded to make it to the first lantern using only my fists. It seemed really freaking hard, but I figured, "I guess this just what these games are like." After dying many times to the first monster but doing better with the lesser mobs, I was transported back to the place I was when I first died. Finally taking a look around, I realized my mistake  icon_lol

However I have thought about it and I will be selling my kids so I can finish more games.

This is a solid plan. Also, if you make good progress in a year you can buy them back.

Quote from: Lee on March 23, 2015, 06:09:09 PM

I don't worry about finishing them, just playing them. Plus I prefer strategy games that aren't always so much about beating them. I have so many games I have barely played, but I am trying to change that. I am never going to beat Crusader Kings II, but I finally gave it some playing times after owning for it two years. That makes me feel better about it (plus it is fun). Even games like XCom which I thoroughly enjoyed, I got the end it and was just such a slog, I never finished it. I play them while they are fun, don't care about finishing them.

Yeah, I will give up on a game as long as I give it a fair shot. I've given up on a few games this year so far because I wasn't feeling them, and that time may be very short if it's clear I'm not into the genre (although I also gave up on Deus Ex Invisible War because my save corrupted after 11 hours  icon_evil)

I like having a backlog because I can pick out a game in just about any genre whenever I feel like it. Maybe 400 or so unplayed games in my Steam account is a little excessive smile but the average price per game is very low.

play what you have fun with, why bother with a backlog at all.  In fact, why do you HAVE a backlog.  Don't buy something until you are ready to play it, by then it's probably cheaper than whatever sale price you bought it at 2 years ago anyway  ninja

A lot of my games were bought at the cheapest they are ever going to get.

And I am playing what I have fun with. I just played Deus Ex and Deus Ex HR, two of the best games I've probably ever played.
37  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / One weird trick for finishing a lot of games on: March 23, 2015, 05:30:20 PM
Backlogs hate him! You'll never guess what happened next!

I took on the 52 game challenge, and amazingly I have finished 27 games so far this year. I thought I would share my secrets.

1) You don't have to just play RPGs.
Did you know, not every game is 40 hours long? It's true! Shooters, adventure games, 2D platformers...there are lots of games that can be finished in under 20 or even 10 hours! Play these games and watch your backlog go away!

2) Don't play multiplayer.
I know you love Call of Duty, but we're trying to work on our backlog, so sacrifices must be made. Nothing sucks up time like one more round of your favorite multiplayer game. Put them on hold.

3) Don't play MMOs.
MMOs are a black hole. Start one up and next thing you know 500 hours have gone by. If you're trying to knock games off your list, take an MMO break.

4) Be a homebody.
Yeah, well, sometimes it pays to be antisocial. It leaves more time to play games in the evenings.

5) Work from home.
Not an option for everyone, but not having a commute means more gaming time. And sometimes you can take a "long lunch".

6) Don't have kids.
I guess this is too late for some of you, but what can I say, it helps a lot.


The funny thing is, even though I have beaten so many games, my backlog has probably grown due to bundles. the money other people spend on coffee or cigarettes I spend on games. $3-$6 a week and you've added somewhere from 5-15 games to your backlog each week. Oh well.
