I haven't noticed the battle music (too much going on, probably) but holy hell the music in town drives me up a wall. The overworld music is nice and orchestral but once I walk into town and that drum machine starts up, ugh.

So I have a question - it took me forever to get 15% map completion to advance the story because it seemed I had to run over the map activating nodes. Now I've read through the manual a bit and it turns out clearing the activity on any hex will contribute to map completion. But I don't understand how to find the other activities be it tyrant or treasure box or whatever. It says you can sometimes get clues added to the map if you talk to people in town but I don't seem to have found those clues. Any hints on how to find these things?

Look for people in town who have a yellow dialog bubble above their head, instead of the standard green one.  When you pass by one, they will give you a short bit of info and you'll see a message that says something like "New Segment info in Primorida".  Look for the "new" marker on your segment map and tap on it.  It will then show what the specific task/collectible/tyrant is for that sector.  Once you find/kill the objective, you'll get a gold "complete" shield and it will increase your completion percentage.  Just be aware that sometimes the thing it unlocks won't be doable until way later.  Got two new ones last night...one for a level 58 tyrant (I'm level 28) and one that required a level 5 Mechanical field skill.

I've found that finding the yellow dialogs sometimes requires you to run around town at different times of day and in different weather conditions.  Went to the residential district at night in the rain, and it unlocked three of them that previously weren't available.

OK, I've definitely gotten some of those, I'll have to look more closely at my map.

BTW, I think the multiplayer concept that they have in the game is really cool, but I couldn't imagine trying to coordinate with randoms, especially without voice chat.

Why did your Bills let me down ATB?

I'm going to regret watching this game, aren't I?

Because they suck.  Their coach sucks. The organization sucks. The only thing great about the Bills is their fans.

15 penalties!?

They should have fired Ryan at the bye. 

Ryan sucks. Pegula sucks. I wish the whole team had moved to Canada and that they tore down rich stadium and salted the earth around it.


Did you watch the 30 for 30 about the 4 straight SB losses? Bet that would be fun.

This game is stupid. But now the Cowboys will have about 40 seconds to get a field goal.

You called it

Well at least the Cowboys still have Dan Bailey.

And the Cowboys beat the best team in the division! slywink

They actually have the best division record lol. And they can hold on to it if they beat Washington again and Philly doesn't beat both the Giants and Washington. NFC Least!

Good luck against GB Tongue

I am sad that NE got the win. But man, that kick was beautiful. 54 yards like it was nothing and it probably could have gone 3-5 more.  I just hope the Jints beat them up enough so that Buffalo can capitalize this weekend.

And Teg is one of my favorite forum people, but I am absolutely delighting in the Cowboy's season. 7 straight losses. Awesome!

And Manning gets benched on the night he sets the all time record. The world sho gon crayzy!

Why you gotta hurt me like that?

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

Survivor run done! It actually wound up not being nearly as hard as I expected because there are some very effective weapons.

I'm still torn on whether I want to do the score attacks. I tried one and it seems like fairly small mistakes can wind up with you losing your combo. Could lead to a lot of frustration. I bought the season pass when I probably shouldn't have. I might sell/trade now and then pick it up again at a cheaper price once the season pass stuff starts appearing.

The shooting is also good. I haven't used VATS at all and I used it extensively in Fallout 3 and a good 25% of the time in New Vegas.

Yup, I've been noticing this too. VATS comes in handy in certain situations, but otherwise it's playing very well as a FPS.

When I hit about ten hours in I was feeling very meh about the game, but now that I've hit about twenty hours I'm really enjoying it. However, I would say that part of a reason (maybe a big part of the reason) is the settlement activity. It gives a reason to go wandering around looking for fans and radios and other odd stuff.



I assume you guys are playing PC? The shooting on consoles is... bad.

Yes, although I don't know why it would be different on console.
143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Fallout 4 on: November 16, 2015, 10:50:12 PM
Yup, Fallout 4 has bugs, a kind of dumb conversation system and a silly story.

But damn if I don't love being in that world. Walking around in the woods finding new places to explore and safes to crack. Going inside these blasted out buildings with maze-like structures hiding who knows what? That stuff is addictive and there's so much of it. This is why Bethesda can get away with what they do.

After a week out, I already have more time into this game than I did in Advanced Warfare.

It is so good.  But what I sad on Friday still stands. It's very hard.  I don't know if that's because most of the casual players have jumped to the PS4 leaving a more 'hardcore' shooter base on the XB1, or if people are just adapting to the play style faster and it's taking me a bit longer.


Sorry to break the news to you, but you are getting old and losing your skillz. It is permanent and nothing can be done about it.

146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: November 16, 2015, 10:34:08 PM
The game will come out on PS4 next year, will look great, have all sorts of nice quotes on the cover and it will sell fine.

Looks like I have a bug that's going to prevent me from 100%ing my save so hopefully there will be a patch for that. I'm a good way into my second run as well (on survivor difficulty). I've been making it through ok, but I have definite concerns about a few upcoming parts.
147  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: November 12, 2015, 11:13:23 PM
Yeah, I completely set aside Fallout 4 to play this. I'm going to 100% it, although I think I will resort to a guide for a couple of the more "needle in a haystack" collectibles.

I agree about your story comment
Spoiler for Hiden:
First of all, they made the woman entirely too young looking. I thought she was one of Lara's college friends at first. Second, she's introduced too suddenly - "hey, here's this woman who's really close to Lara who we've never heard of before. She's totally not the person who was just rooting around her apartment even though she shows up seconds later." When she shows up tied to a chair in front of Lara it's kind of obvious what's going on.
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: November 12, 2015, 05:57:01 AM
Yeah, the sp isn't great outside of the special abilities and it gets reaaally weird story-wise.
149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rise of Tomb Raider on: November 10, 2015, 09:14:57 PM
Loving the game so far, although granted I am a sucker for this kind of gameplay.

I rarely do score attack/challenge modes, but I am looking forward to at least putting a little time into the expeditions. The way you can use cards as modifiers is intriguing and they might be fun achievements to go for. This is also how they managed to put micro transactions into the game, but you can earn in-game currency to get cards as well, and I expect they will be gifting them throughout the game and as weekly bonuses possibly.

I played a little bit this morning, and accidentally ended up as a woman.  I thought I was just customizing both parents and then I'd play as the child, so when I was done with the woman I just went forward as her.   disgust


LOL, why would they have you so meticulously craft the character only to make the final result a total crapshoot?

I somehow managed to switch the guy's skin color before switching over to the woman (made a hot redhead as usual biggrin) and so I have a mixed-race baby.

My OCD exploration also made me somewhat sequence break one of the first missions. Concord spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
if you climb to the top floor of the church, you can jump to the tail of the helicopter and get on the roof of the museum and get the power armor before you meet a single raider. When you meet the survivors they correctly have a conversation prompt where you can say you already have the gatling gun, but the conversation definitely seems to assume you do not have the power armor yet.

151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: November 10, 2015, 03:03:31 PM
By the way I played some of nightmare mode it is a very interesting concept.

Spoilers if you want to discover it on your own:
Spoiler for Hiden:
They took the existing campaign levels and just laid new voiceovers on top of it and then changed the encounters. They also reordered the missions so they could tell a new story. So in the real game where you are tracking down some rogue guys in like mission 4, you are now looking for some missing zombie hunters in what is now mission 1, and the location is now where the zombie virus was released from. The idea is pretty cool, but in practice it's not perfect, because you see the characters mouths moving in the cutscenes from the campaign, and there's not much music as at all. Also, while in the main campaign the encounters are designed so you are using your special powers, here you only get powers from occasional drops and they basically just flood the area with zombies so it doesn't flow as well. But good on Treyarch for doing this kind of experiment and providing even more content for what is already a packed game.
152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: November 10, 2015, 02:34:15 AM
The game actually takes place 50 years from now so the time travel that takes place before each round requires some extra time.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/10) on: November 09, 2015, 05:12:05 AM

157  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 02, 2015, 03:24:04 PM
I haven't noticed any real serious changes to the voice recognition, but it was never perfect. What has seem to have improved is the console recognizing my face and signing in when I sit down. In the old version I usually had to manually sign in.

I got an $80 credit for getting an Amazon credit card, so somehow I have wound up getting CoD yet again. We'll see how long I keep it after beating the campaign.

So I just picked up my computer. Not only did they fix it (I assume) they replaced the entire bottom case which I had dented the hell out of. So now I have a brand new looking 4.5 year old computer.
