1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Terminator: Genesis + a TV series? on: December 17, 2014, 12:13:42 AM

Quote from: wonderpug on December 16, 2014, 11:48:52 PM

I purposely avoid reading/watching spoilers about a movie in order to walk in thinking "I wonder what this is about."  If I see enough of a trailer to know I want to see something, I usually avoid all future trailers, don't rewatch the one I saw, and definitely don't go frame by frame looking for hidden details in the trailer.  The best situation is when someone recommends a movie or book to me without telling me anything about it.  I got to watch Primer that way and it made a big difference in my enjoyment.  For books, I recently got to read The Girl With All the Gifts without knowing a thing about the premise.

Hey Wonderpug, I've got a good movie for you. It's called Audition and it's about a guy trying to find a girlfriend.

Well today I found out the devs wanted people to play the game on hard. Well then why not make that the default difficulty? I played the game wrong!

You start over now!

I'm already a bit peeved that I don't get an achievement for finishing on medium when some people wimped out and  dropped down to easy.

Bring on the Steam sale so I can buy all sorts of random stuff!

Btw I've mentioned it before but I highly recommend setting up a wait list on isthereanydeal.com.

And done. Definitely finished strong.

Spoiler for Hiden:
They really amped up the tension with the space station coming apart and also dropping you into the nest. Man face huggers creep me out.

What I'm not clear on is the source of all the aliens. Aliens (the movie) established the queen laying the eggs. I know that the original Alien movie had the idea of prisoners somehow being converted into eggs (the different parts of the face hugger are converted human body parts), but I thought that idea was thrown out. But here we have tons of Aliens and eggs all over without an egg chamber.

I'm also curious how they will explain Amanda not warning everyone about the Aliens. I'm guessing WY picks her up and keeps her under control for the rest of her life.

Woot!  Unfortunately, due to their crappy conference record, I think the Cowboys still need to win out, which means beating Indy next week. Far from out of the woods.

So I'm through chapter 13, I believe. I'm actually liking the game more...
Spoiler for Hiden:
now that the Alien is gone. It was more of a nuisance than anything and now the game is playing a little more like a stealth game.

Unfortunately I read a spoiler last night that the Alien (or Aliens) come back. I don't know how they come back story-wise, but oh well, there's a surprise down the drain.

I really like the environment design and the story, and Ripley is a great character. One of the few game characters whose actions and abilities make perfect sense based on how the character has been presented to us. The gameplay itself is what I'm still trying to work out if I like. As I mentioned, the Alien I just found to be annoying. I could crouch walk around without making a sound and then invariably have it drop through the ceiling and impale me while I'm working on a fuse box or whatever.

And yeah, still not finding the game scary at all. I don't think this is the game's fault, because lots of people say they find this game very scary. I guess it's just not the kind of stuff I find scary. Things that tend to get to me are creepy things like messed up monsters and creepy environments, and yes, jump scares. This game has robots and clean hallways and things that will grab you off the floor as you walk by, something that works exactly once until you know to look out for it. But Silent Hill and Outlast and stuff like that, I can't deal with.

Have you played P.T. yet?

Hell no.

The auction is a big disaster so far. There's a duping bug and things have gone crazy. Someone posted a picture showing 4 quintillion+ gems in their account. Valve looks to be addressing it, but we'll see if there's some official word.
19  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: December 12, 2014, 03:55:21 AM
If anything, you can convert gems into booster packs. I'm curious to see how the winning bids change as the whales deplete their gems on the first auction - there are 99 subsequent auctions for each item.
20  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: December 12, 2014, 01:31:20 AM
Crazy pre-holiday auction going on. All sort of interesting things will be going on with the economy as low priced items are flushed from the system to be converted into gems for bids.

Got past the reveal of how the Alien made it on board.

Well I finally finished this up. I have to admit I became less and less enamored with it as I went along. A little trial and error stuff is ok, but when there is so much of it it starts to wear on you. I can't remember the exact number of deaths it showed me I had but it was well over 200. Plus the camera is just really awful and is a big detriment to the game.

Story was kind of interesting but left more questions than answers. Also seems to be somewhat of an homage to Resident Evil.
Spoiler for Hiden:
There is some sort of shadowy multinational group/corporation pulling the strings

Can't say I can really recommend it unless you are really into this genre. Have to decide if I will hold on to it for the story DLC that's coming. They do give you some fun weapons for new game+ much like RE.

Curious if you have access to the Ghale family home upgrades yet as those were a pretty big money sink. 

No, I haven't. I'm assuming that comes after you unlock the Northern part or something?  Some mission past where I am at least.

It's not really made very clear in the game. You need to do the first Yogi mission.

It kind of sucks that they aren't making the XL customizable. If I upgrade my XL I'm not going to want to downsize, and having the option for a faceplate would be nice.

How much do multiplayer map packs normally cost for CoD or other games?  Aren't they $15 or so without including any new weapons or equipment?


I think this says more about how overpriced COD map packs are than anything. Think about it this way, does this DLC represent 1/3 of the total content of Destiny? Hell no, and in addition it takes advantage of all the development that your original $60 actually paid for.  At least you are getting a raid and some story content with the MP maps. I'm surprised I never sat down and though about how much of a rip off COD map packs were.

Normal or medium or whatever they call it.

Yeah, the Karma system is kind of funny - until I maxed it out I would help everyone I came across. The second I maxed it out it was like, "sorry you got kidnapped, good luck with that!" biggrin

Well I unlocked the strike to do, so I'll try that out some time this week. Guess it took me about 2 hours? Yay.

The weapon you get for completing the 3 story missions is kind of cool, but the missions themselves were hardly special. No Dinklebot, which was surprising.

So VoG armor is already obsolete? This game is so messed up.

I don't know about VoG armor specifically, but for other exotic pieces I believe there's a new method via Xur to upgrade their stats to be in line with the new expansion stuff.

I mean that you can now buy stuff with marks that has better defense than VoG gear.

I'm pretty sure that they can help their own cause when they play Phillie next week.  If they lose, they don't deserve to be on the inside.

They could still make the wild card with a loss. If they lose to Washington in Week 17, then they don't deserve to be on the inside.

So far so good, I'm really liking it. It's basically just Far Cry 3 - Cry Harder, but I loved FC3 so it's all good.

First thing I did was set myself up for an alternate ending (major spoiler below):

Spoiler for Hiden:
At the beginning of the game, Pagan Min tells you to wait and he'll be right back. If you do wait (approximately 12-15 mins), he comes back, you get on a chopper together. He flies you to a shrine where you place your mother's urn and credits roll. If you just do what you're told, you don't have to deal with all the bullshit of actually playing 30 hours. I laughed out loud.



Is this for real?

Yes, although it reveals a pretty major story spoiler.

Here's the bit I was remembering. I guess they didn't go into as much detail as I recalled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=uXvvc5MEqfE#t=90

At the end of the game Sully gives Nate his wedding ring back and he wears it for Elena, implying they are back together. There were probably other references to the ring in the game (Nate thinks he's lost it, I think) but I don't recall exactly where they were.
