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.

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.

Battlefront. I would love a fun tennis game but I don't think I'll be getting that right now.
125  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.
126  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.

Yeah, the sp isn't great outside of the special abilities and it gets reaaally weird story-wise.
128  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.

130  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.
131  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.
132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/10) on: November 09, 2015, 05:12:05 AM
Tomb Raider and Fallout. Definitely the highlight of the year for me.

I liked Tomb Raider a lot, but at no point did I find it better than Uncharted 2, the greatest game of all time. You people crazy have different opinions.
136  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.
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (11/3) on: November 02, 2015, 03:22:15 PM
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.

Well good news, the problem I have is a known defect and I'll be getting my MacBook repaired free of charge. Hopefully it's got a new lease on life and I can get my next MacBook when they release one I like.

And my xbox will be getting an additional TB of storage.

That is great news! Was it someone at the Apple Store that identified the problem?

Yeah, they just ran a bunch of standard tests on it and it failed one. The guy basically called it as soon as I told him what was happening. I had heard of an issue with this model in the past but I thought it presented with graphical issues. Turns out there is more than one potential symptom.

I played the first campaign mission last night, reminded of just how absolutely horrible I am at FPS games lol.  Half the time I don't know where I'm going or who I was playing.  Is there a command I can issue to the other guys to take the lead so I can follow their asses?


Haha, no, but you can tell them where to go. A few things though:
1. Press down on the d-pad and you'll get a big "go here!" mark on your screen
2. If you dawdle too much they will start to ask you to keep going (nice, considering they want you to rummage around for datapads.)
3. If your team is scripted to go forward and you stay behind, a big flash will happen and you'll be magically transported to their location.

War zone is pretty cool, would like to play it with a squad. At its heart it's still hop around and try to keep your gun on target Halo that I suck at tho. Throwing in ai that you can mow down helps a little.

Divinity because free (good thing I bought it last year and didn't play it Tongue) and Halo. Will definitely get Trails in the Sky but not yet. I played the first one earlier this year on Vita.

Possible over heating issue? Try pulling the bottom cover and have a look at the fans and heatsinks, you may need to pull the fans and pull the fur out... I had to do that on my 2010 MBP about every 6 mo.

I don't think so? Fans seem ok. I actually put an order on a MacBook Air this afternoon and cancelled it 15 mins later because I'm still not 100% happy with it. I'm going to go to the Apple Store tonight and see what they say and what a repair might cost.
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: October 27, 2015, 10:23:07 PM
I've had it for a while. Its definitely improved over time, but there are issues with responsiveness and apps crashing. One thing that bugs me is that they have added categories to the onscreen guide (that's fine) that you can't switch among using your voice (that's bad). So you have to leave it on the main category all the time or you have to go grab your remote or controller.

They've made good progress on it, hopefully another month baking will make a lot of difference.

150  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Not sure what to do with my MacBook Pro on: October 27, 2015, 10:04:08 PM
Well, changing the hard drive made the issue slightly better - it still freezes but it will shut down without me having to take the back off Tongue. So I guess I need to find a use for that 1TB laptop drive and figure out what I want to do for a new laptop.

For whatever reason I started playing this on PS4 this week despite getting it as a gift last xmas. I love the writing so far, but what has struck me so far is how good the game looks when you are driving around. They put so much work into the road textures, with grooved parts on the highways and wear and repaired spots all all over the streets that it looks downright realistic. I'm really going to have to get this on PC as well somewhere down the line.

Pick up a new Macbook and add one of these for $159 bucks for the 256 Gig. I've had one in my Macbook Pro Retina for over a year and it's a great drive.

That's good to know - I wasn't aware this was a possibility. For now I think I'll give the new hd a shot. I just bought a new gsync monitor and would rather not pick up another big ticket item right now.

Mine is beat up like crazy (that aluminum dents really easily), I couldn't imagine selling it. I decided to pick up a 1tb drive for $50 - hopefully the drive is the only issue and this will extend the life until I see a model I really want.

This is really why I thought Mad Max was inferior to Mordor (last year's under the radar WB game). I enjoyed playing it, but expect I left at least 30% of the map undone because at some point it just became busywork.

Mordor has its fair share of incredibly annoying trophies too. Take that from someone who platinumed the game. I expressed my frustrations with a few of the trophies in the main thread for that game at the time.

I wasn't really thinking of the trophies, just the game in general. I pretty much got 100% in Mordor, but after a certain amount of time in MM I was ready to move the story to completion and uninterested in a lot of what was left on the map.
158  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Not sure what to do with my MacBook Pro on: October 14, 2015, 07:34:56 PM
My early 2011 MacBook Pro is about to die. It might just be the hard drive, but I'm not sure. The problem is I looked up the current MacBook/Air/Pro roster and for the first time I'm not really happy about what I see. The number one problem is the disk space. The MacBooks and Airs top out at 512gb ssd - my current 4.5 year old machine has 750gb. Where do they expect people to put their music and video? If you want to get 1tb on a pro you are kicking in $500 extra. You can get a nice deal on a 13" non-retina with 1tb, but then you get aging hardware.

Not sure what to do - I might see if I can verify that my only problem is only the hard drive and then just swap it out myself and wait. This machine has treated me really well and the 6750m still plays a lot of games well so I don't have to play everything on my PC.
