I am spending all my money on maps so far since you can get a lot of the guns for free. But this means total ADD because of all the icons.

Those freaking fish are ridiculous. Swimming in the beginning is not a good idea.

I've only played about 2 hours but wow does this feel like a Far Cry 3 mod so far. I mean, that doesn't mean it's not fun, but it feels a little too familiar.

Frame rate is not so hot on the xbone.

Weird, for some reason I thought Second Son came out last year. I played that, but it's not my goty. 
5  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your biggest gaming disappointment/sleeper hit of 2014? on: November 20, 2014, 02:15:45 AM
Disappointment would have to go with Destiny, especially given the rumors about what it might have been at one point or another.

Mordor was definitely a surprise. It wasn't even on my radar until reviews hit. Also, Thief. Every seemed to want to crap on it, but I had a lot of fun with it.
6  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's Almost Thanksgiving (USA! USA!), What's your GOTY? on: November 20, 2014, 02:11:56 AM
Here's what I've got as a possible pool to pick from so far:

Titanfall
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Destiny
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
Watch_Dogs
Thief (2014)
Sunset Overdrive
The Elder Scrolls Online
Wildstar
Mario Golf World Tour
Marvel Heroes
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
Infamous Second Son

What I'm hoping to finish before year's end (much easier said than done):
Far Cry 4
Dragon Age Inquisition
Bayonetta 2
Dangonronpa 1
The Evil Within
Strider
Borderlands The Pre-Sequel
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Unfortunately I don't have a clear winner yet. At the moment I will have to go with Sunset Overdrive. I liked Shadow of Mordor a lot, but the fact that it relies so much on mechanics taken from Batman and Assassin's Creed is a negative as far as a "game of the year" goes. SO is not perfect, but it felt more unique to me.

I'm getting Far Cry 4 via Gamefly. I will definitely be playing a lot of the other games - DA and GTA hopefully before year end. Never Alone looks really interesting.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on: November 16, 2014, 03:33:56 PM
They are totally different things. CoD games are like playing a Michael Bay movie. None of the stealth or more open areas of those other games.

Well this is getting quite good reviews, in stark contrast to Unity. I'm not buying it next week but I may have to pick it up before year end, hopefully on a holiday sale.

A sale this early? Even with the holiday sale coming up, is that likely? I must be getting old, I am not paying $60 game that is already advertising for it's DLC/season pass. I will wait for it can it and all it's DLC for half the price.

Not a huge sale, but I would not be surprised by 20-33% off during black friday or Steam/GMG sales.

So I am playing DAO again and am about 10 hours in. I was researching which DLC would be ok to skip and managed to see a major spoiler
Spoiler for Hiden:
Logain becomes a party member
. I've played this game partway so many times on both 360 and PC and now that I'm finally determined to finish it I see a huge spoiler I somehow managed to avoid since DAOs release. frown
13  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Building a single purpose gaming pc? UPDATE - Built! on: November 13, 2014, 05:36:27 PM
Just made a big change to my rig so I thought I would check in and update how much it has changed in the past 2 years.

For my video card, last year I sold off my two 660Tis and got a single 780. Just recently I picked up another 780 to go SLI again.

Given that there isn't likely to be another AM3+ chip coming out anytime soon, if ever, I finally bit the bullet and switched to Intel. I got an i5-4460 and a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI motherboard. Initial tests show some pretty nice improvement.

I also took the opportunity to get a new case with a window and better cable management (also turns out to be a lot quieter) and upgraded my ram to DDR3 2133.

So what started out as a pretty modest gaming machine has turned into something a little different. I think the only things left from my original build are the power supply, the data HD and the DVD burner.

Given that Rogue uses the ac4 engine I would not be surprised if "Rogue Definitive Edition " or whatever came out in 6 months.

Man, I'm going to have to get with it and finally play through DAO.


Origins was such a great game!  It can be quite challenging, even at the 'Normal' difficulty, but once you understand that it's one of the rare RPGs that expects you to actively spend your gold on armor sets and items, it's incredibly satisfying.

The expansion pack is less evenly balanced, with your characters gaining access to equipment and skills that effectively make them invulnerable death gods.  It's still a good time though, and the "Stone Prisoner" DLC pack for the base game should be considered an essential part of the package.

-Autistic Angel

Yeah, I've actually tried every single intro story at one time or another, getting to various parts of the story each time. I think the furthest I ever got was doing the elves area and the mages area and then getting stuck in the dwarves area.

Honestly how on earth are you guys even playing this game right now? The lag makes me quit after two rounds.

My experience is the same as yours. If they don't make some announcement about addressing the lag issues soon, I'll probably sell this as soon as I finish the campaign. On the plus side, I haven't enjoyed a CoD campaign this much in a long time. 

Did you play Ghosts? That one surprised me by how much fun it was. In the end it came out on top between these two.

I think I'll go back and play that game.  I never played more than a couple missions.  Campaign is fun you say?

Not Uncharted fun mind you. But you get to play as a dog, and how many games can you say that about? AW started out OK and the new powers add something to it, but it began to feel like they took a list of every single level from previous CoDs and started marking off their checklist. Here's the level where you drive a car! Here's the level where you fly a plane. Here's the level where you drive a boat! Here's the level where you stealth and fail if you get spotted! Oops, we forgot to rappel, throw that in! And the story is just silly. I mean really silly.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Is the master really dead? It looked like she ported out right as the doctor was about to shoot. The effect of her "gun" was always to burn up the victim, but the effect on her was the blue glow she had previously when teleporting.

I also didn't understand why Clara was important in the plan and why the master needed to choose her.

In the shooting gallery they still show the target even when it is behind cover. Make sure you weren't making the same mistake I was.  When I figured that out I was able to score excellent.

I thinking I'm going to trade this in when I finish the SP (been sick so haven't been playing). Just not feeling into the competitive MP shooter thing right now.

I don't care about being right. I care about consumers being able to think for themselves and stop being so fucking naive!

What does being naive have to do about it? You already said that you don't expect anyone to do anything about it. I'm certainly not going to start writing letters to Ubisoft or anything. What's the difference if people think its going to happen or not?

28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 06, 2014, 05:12:31 PM
I actually went in thinking the TV integration was the stupidest thing ever. I decided to hook up my Tivo just to see how it worked but expected to unhook it. Now it might actually be my favorite part of the console.

The things I like:
1. "Xbox on" turns on my tv and receiver (if it could choose a specific receiver input it would be perfect)
2. Can use voice commands to issue pause/fast forward to Tivo
3. Can use One Guide to control Tivo (although One Guide usability could use some work, or I could use some practice)

I will occasionally snap tv, but not for extended periods of time. Nice for when you are waiting for something to download, perhaps.

So yeah, I really like it, but if you are not using the kinect then it loses a lot of the value.
