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.

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.

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.
12  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.

I finished Revelations recently and the only defense mission I played was the tutorial because I kept my notoriety down the whole game.

I have been playing Deus Ex HR and hope to finish it tomorrow.

I liked the first game (I thought it was kind of like a puzzle game where you needed to figure out the right way to travel through each level), but I haven't bought the second. It seemed like a game that didn't really need a sequel.

Well, it only took 6 years, but I have finished the game of the month! It finally just clicked this time, as I picked a very specific path to go down (stealth pistol) and made good use of augmentations. Really an amazing game, especially all the little consequences that can result from your decisions and the general flexibility it offers. I'm glad I was finally able to get this out of my backlog.

Every time I see the name "Bladestorm" I wonder why no one has made an actual "Bonestorm" game yet.

And I am so far from buying a new game this week that I am playing the original Deus Ex.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Game of the Month Discussion, Mar/Apr 2009: Deus Ex Game of the Year on: March 16, 2015, 02:41:26 AM
Hey look, I'm bumping an ancient thread.

The reason is I am deep into Deux Ex again and hoping to finish it this time. I've gotten further than I ever have before, but my recent bad luck (losing 5 hours of progress in Ori) has hit me again. This time I have only lost about 1.5 hours, but I'm still hoping to avoid having to play over again.

What I think caused this is I was getting on to Jock's helicopter and was killed during the conversation. So I think part of the game thinks I'm dead and part of the game thinks I'm alive. The result is that I can walk around in the next area, but I can't use my arms. I can choose the pistol, but it doesn't show up in my hands and I can't shoot, and the same for anything else. If I try to pick up a box it says my hands aren't empty.

I've done a bunch of googling but haven't found a solution to this issue. I figured I would ask here to see if anyone knows any console commands that might fix it or something.


EDIT: Nevermind, I wound up just playing over the parts I had to. It turned out for the best because I found some secrets I had missed before.

Holy crap. I was 9.5 hours in, around 70% completion I think, and I went through a door that required 4 keys and then killed a bird and then saved my game. I realized I was pretty sure I needed that bird to proceed but it wouldn't respawn. Then I noticed it still showed 4 keys in my inventory. I quit out of the game hoping it would resolve itself, but when I logged back in the save it had was from only 4.5 hours played. I just feel dejected now and don't want to play the game.

Wow...are you playing on PC?

That's got to be hacked like every other leaderboard. I'd like to see a video of someone doing a zero death run. There's so many easy ways to die. I'm currently at 55% and 555 deaths.

I really can't get into VR until I start seeing how games support it. No way am I buying more than one of these headsets because EA only supports one and Ubisoft supports another or whatever.

That's not going to happen. Unless a title is a paid exclusive, it's in those companies best interests to make their titles work on both available VR sets. The market will be small enough initially anyway, and they don't need to make it smaller.

Both? We've already got Valve, Sony, Oculus and I assume Microsoft.
