161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What the Hell Color is This Dress? on: February 27, 2015, 09:56:47 PM
I see white/gold, but I have no argument that the dress is actually blue/black. I mean, it is, there are other pictures of it.

I'm curious as to why different people see it differently. I've read I guess 2 different explanations, one that is biological (the rods/cones thing) and another that seems to revolve around perception/psychology. I'd like to know which is right.

I've heard other people say that it has changed to black/blue for them, which suggests some psychological aspect to it, but no matter how many times I see the picture - rotated, tilted, color corrected, whatever, I always see it gold and white.

Was this unpreventable? I'm actually surprised the parents are getting so much sympathy based on the description.

There's only so much you can do to kid-proof the entire world.  If the kid had never left his room on his own before, let alone solo opened the front door to the house, I think it's understandable that the parents never saw that as a high risk for that kid.

I've got a fishtank in my house, and conceivably my 4.5 year old could quietly leave her room while we were sleeping, walk downstairs, drag a stepstool of some sort over to the fishtank, open the lid, fall in, and drown.  But my daughter has never exhibited any behavior around the fishtank that would make her seem interested in doing anything remotely close to that action, and she doesn't even ever leave her room on her own unless we open the door for her or tell her over the baby monitor that she can come downstairs.

Should I find some way to completely strap down the lid to the fishtank even though it's seems extraordinarily unlikely that anything would actually happen?  I mean, I admit talking through the fishtank scenario now makes me want to strap down the lid out of the self-induced fear I just gave myself, but I'm sure if I put my mind to it (and hated myself) I could think of even more hypothetical deadly scenarios for my kids.

I guess when my daughter was even younger but not using a crib, I did have a childproof doohickey on her bedroom door knob to stop her from leaving her room on her own, so maybe there was more the parents in the OP could've/should've done.  But I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt unless I hear otherwise.

edit to my previous post:  I misread Roman's post the first time and didn't realize it was an unrelated other citizen who did the crowdfunding rather than the toddler's parents.  That changes everything, and if he keeps a single dime for his own personal benefit then yes, he's going to hell.

I wasn't specifically judging, I was more curious if there were any more details to the case, like the parents were out partying and left the kid home alone or something.

The dev of There Came an Echo is giving it away free to anyone with a NeoGAF account, so I'll be snagging that.

I still don't understand what htoL#NiQ is, or how you're supposed to pronounce it.

Gunslinger is definitely fun and very focused on shooting stuff. Wolfenstein actually has significant interstitial sections where you are chatting with npcs and has stealth aspects. Still a fun game, though.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: A good, basic FPS? on: February 23, 2015, 02:26:07 AM
You mention liking Far Cry 3, but that has stealth and crafting. If you did like it, you can't go wrong with Far Cry 4, which is FC3 but better.

OK, in all seriousness, I've got a legitimate question.

I'm level 24 and beat the single player story today. I've finished bounties and a few strikes, and played a few multiplayer matches. However, am I missing something or is this all that's left?

Neither of these things are particularity interesting or worth my playing time if this is it. Only a handful of different enemies to fight, other than the bosses. Just seems rather repetitive, whether bounties or strikes.

Am I missing something else?

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

Yeah, that's pretty much it. You can do things at higher difficulties, but generally it's bounties, strikes and MP to grind rep to get you to around 28 to do the first raid. If you have the first DLC then the first raid becomes obsolete from a gear perspective, although it is good content.

I'm of the same mind with most of you regarding shopping at Gamestop. However, given that they have been doing this forever, it must work more often than not, or they would have stopped doing it a long time ago.

The user "reviews" are nuts for this.  Was sunset overdrive like this?  An exclusive that just got skewered by the other side just because?

No, I don't think so, but SO didn't have near the amount of hype as The Order, and it also doesn't have a single controversial aspect that people can latch on to, such as length/unskippable cutscenes/QTEs, etc. (It's also a great game, IMHO smile ). A fairly analogous example on the xbone side would be Ryse, although even then I don't recall it being specifically targeted by Playstation fans.

The sad thing is that I don't think anyone would be complaining about the length if it wasn't for that initial report on the YouTube playthrough. Since when did gamers become such sheeple?

I don't know - a $60 game with no MP and no bonus modes that's just 7-9 hours in length with lots of unskippable cutscenes? I think people would be talking about it even without that speed run video. Especially a game that's been in development as long as The Order.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] The Order: 1886 on: February 19, 2015, 04:44:14 PM
Personally, I do care about length as well as a reason to play the game early in its release. With no multiplayer or anything, plus a backlog that goes on for miles, it's going to be hard to convince me to spend $60 on this game right now. Of course, it's likely I would trade away the game pretty quickly, making the cost not a big deal in the log run, but there still seems to be very little reason to play this game at release, even if it might be GOTY material.

I have no concept of the general game buying public so I have no idea if the shitshow online about The Order will have an effect on sales or it's just 5% of gamers making a lot of noise.

I'd like to see some definitive info on the length of the game. Some impressions are saying it is 5 hours long including cutscenes and others are saying it's much longer.

This is definitely one of those games that I'm interested in but is falling under the "no preorders for new ip" rule.

Did you pre-order The Last of Us?!

That was last gen, before all this ridiculousness starting happening. And anything naughty dog makes would certainly get an exemption.

Ok I spit out my drink for nothing then!

My backlog is so big and full of solid games I just see no reason to jump in without reviews these days. I'm getting eager to pick up Dying Light, but even that has had a bunch of patches already. I hope 1886 is great (Ready at Dawn did great work on the PSP), but I don't want to be the guinea pig. I'll save that for Tomb Raider, Batman, Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted.

The comparison GIF is for Xenoblade Chronicles, a game which originally came out for the Wii and is being ported over to the new new 3DS.

The Wii U game you're referring to is Xenoblade Chronicles X, which is a completely different game (and looks much better).

Oh, well, how could anybody ever make a mistake between those games.   retard  (blaming the silly naming convention, not your explanation)

And what happened to Xenoblade Chronicles II through IX?

They are only playable on Windows 9 or on Xboxes 2 - 359.

Ah, I remember the XBOX 127. What a great machine. Spent so much time playing BMX XXII on that thing.

Am I crazy or did Rottentomatoes do games for a short period of time but stopped when they found out that game reviews tend to rate on too narrow a scale?  Maybe a different site?  Anyway, I think that the Rottentomatoes method works a bit better in that it gives a sense of the overall feeling towards a movie rather than saying "that game is an 82".

I wish I knew of a reviewer who share my tastes, so I could always go there to know if I was going to like a game. But when I tried to find someone who gave Wet and The Saboteur 10/10 and also thinks 4X games are boring I didn't get very far.

Would be nice if this became a trend and metacritic ceased to be a thing. I like being able to see a review average, but it's started to do more harm than good.

They will be using essential, recommended and avoid, while some games will just fall into an "average" unlabeled bin where you can make your own decision.

Xenoblade Chronicle  New 3DS only  releases April 15th

I want to play this game, but I'm not really sold on buying a new 3ds to play it, especially since there are unlikely to be a lot of New 3ds exclusives. If I have to shell out $60 for it to play on wii u it's still probably going to be the better way to go, especially for the graphics.
I believe the 3DS game is technically just a port of the original Wii game.  So you could play it on that if you really wanted…

That's what I'm saying, I'll buy a copy of the Wii version. Unfortunately, getting that for less than even $80 is tough these days.
