Diablo and Bioshock DLC.

Only 1/44th as good as The 4400.

Wouldn't destructive environments make pilots cannon fodder?

Yes, he actually points out that destructive buildings alone would probably not work in the game, but points out that there could be dynamic events on the maps like in Battlefield/CoD/Gears. The fact that there are giant monsters on a map and they are just window dressing is one particular wasted opportunity.

(BTW he plays on PC, which is why some of the Xbone features don't apply)

I think the point is not to nitpick any one of these items, but that there is a list of items this long, many of which we've come to expect as standard in a MP shooter.

I mean, sure you can play for 20 hours, but you can play Loadout for 20 hours too for free. Like I said, I mostly curious about when they actually planned for this game to come out, and what was the feature set would have been in the complete game. We know that private matches are coming, but was there anything else?
124  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 19, 2014, 12:34:13 AM
Let me preface by saying I really like Titanfall and will be playing it a lot more, but I was watching this review by Angry Joe and he brought up a good point about the game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZhUHOqaC5_A#t=1190

I fast forwarded to the relevant portion, since a lot of the review is just complaining that the SP portion was crappy, which is true, but didn't need 15 minutes to explain.

He points out the following shortcomings in the game:
No private matches
No private lobbies (and no kick from lobby option)
No clan support
No rematches
No emblems
No pilot customization
No weapon customization
No Titan customization
Only 10 pilot weapons
Only 5 game modes
No destruction or interactive/changing environments

Was what we got worth $60? Would we have had a problem paying $60 for this game if not for Respawn's credentials? Would reviews have been as high?

What I am most curious about given these facts is what was the game's path to release? Is it possible this game was delivered possibly a year prior to Respawn's plans due to requests from Microsoft?

Eh, not everyone has to like every game and genre. MOBAs are like a foreign language to me and I can't play RTS to save my life.

MOBAs are more like competitive versions of Action RPGs like Marvel Heroes or Diablo than an RTS.  Just all the loot/leveling is sort of confined to the match.

I meant RTS as a second example in that sentence - MOBA and RTS are two genres I don't really get/am not good at, but I don't feel like I need to try and get into them just because other people like them.

I knew this, sorry, thought you knew that when you mentioned unbinding it.  Since it is xp boost it should be fine in ling run, right?

For the most part yes, but I took it off Ms. Marvel at 50, so she'll have to rank it back up before getting the extra 10% when I take her from 50-60. I also made one extra this weekend and maybe I'll have enough time before the event ends to make another. There's some value having them on 60's for rare/special find, but the XP bonus is probably the biggest benefit.

Has anyone able to get this game to work from a suspended state? Even if I back all the way out to the game menu, then turn my console off, when I turn it back on, I can't ever get back into a match without the game seizing up. I can bring it back up, change loadouts, etc., but when I try to enter a match for the first time, it hangs. Every time I start the console up, I have to use the menu button to quit the game, which is annoying because then you have to sit through the intro movies.

How do I know if I'm playing the game from a suspended state?  If I can turn my Xbox on with "Xbox, on!" ?

Yes, and if you don't see the EA/Respawn title stuff when you start the game.

LOL if unintentional.

136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Marvel Heroes on: March 13, 2014, 02:03:39 PM
Might want to tear yourself away from Titanfall a little this weekend - the event drops loot that can be crafted into a special legendary for your characters that provides bonus xp and item find (depending on how high you rank it). You can pop it on your characters until you have Odin marks for a real legendary.

My last match early this afternoon, all I did was have a smart gun and killed over 50 grunts and specters. Ended up just killing two pilots but was still the MVP in attrition mode.

As an alternative, play hardpoint and take enhanced parkour. Go to the point nearest your base, hop up on a good wall and watch the points roll in (+75, +75, +75...) Kill unsuspecting enemies who walk in. Get the active sonar and you can even see them coming.

"Pilot, your Titan has been destroyed.  Beginning construction on a replacement."

Buddy, maybe next time just start constructing the new one right as soon as I get inside this one.  Have it on hand, you know?

It's because there is a finite number of titans and when one is blown up all of the raw materials are captured in a transporter and then reconstituted into a new titan.

I just made that up and it totally makes sense, yup.

Now that I have every modern console and handheld plus a PC who knows when I will use it. I figure it will go well with Gamefly. At least I'll be able to play Lego City and also put away the Wii.

In Reaper of Souls you might notice that some affixes on items have an orange diamond next to it, and they're meant to indicate the affix will not be calculated in the item comparison tool. In other words, any affix with an orange diamond next to it won't change the red or green numbers in the item window.

Works great for me.

Do you ever have issues with it adding its own background noise, sound being delayed compared to your other speakers, or with the signal getting interrupted?

They only thing I have noticed is an occasional pop coming from the rear speakers, but it is very rare.

Regarding the connections, mine only accepts standard speaker wire with no connectors.

On PC I found that the game is performing quite well, but the prerendered cutscenes do not.

Their benchmark tool scene also takes place during a steady rain which is a lot more resource intensive than most of the game which takes place either indoors or during dry weather.

Eh, I don't really have any Thief baggage so I am playing on normal. Focus has a reasonable explanation in the story so I don't mind it. It only seems to highlight things that are in line of sight anyway, unlike Dark Vision in Dishonored.

Jumping has been fine so far, it is not as contextual as I was led to believe. If there is a box you can climb it without a prompt and you can jump across gaps and on to ropes. Things that aren't climbable usually look like they shouldn't be climbed, and places that you should be able to reach without the claw are not reachable unless there's a place to grab on to. Areas are tighter than Dishonored, but that makes a lot more sense in this game since you don't have the Blink power. In the first chapter there were lots of different paths to take around the small area you are given access to.

I've only played the first chapter, though.

The problem with the morality system in the infamous games is that you can't make each choice separately. You have to go all bad or all good or you gimp your powers. The best thing they could do would be to make a set of "morally ambiguous" powers you would have access to if you were in between, but would lose access to if you started to go heavily in one direction.
