No, no experience. I would suggest you avoid lying on the ground and getting punched in the face repeatedly. That always looks painful.

Yes, although it's just reflex at this point. Buying it physically and with the $15 back in MS bucks.

Ugh, that's so ghetto (the widescreen thing).

I'm glad you seem to be enjoying it, Teggy. I'll continue pressing onward.

I could totally see people not being into it, especially the trial and error stuff and some of the jankiness. However, it's what I was expecting and the type of game I was in the mood for.
166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1/360/PS3/PS4/PC]The Evil Within on: October 15, 2014, 05:06:03 PM
The whole game. Rumor is it was done to help with framerate. They say things are supposed to show up in there but I haven't seen anything. Maybe subtitles, but I'm not playing with subtitles.

In chapter 5 and the game is getting creepier and creepier. Definitely a lot of trial and error here, but I'm just rolling with it. Kind of funny after you figure out an encounter you'll get a loading screen message that would have been very helpful before that encounter. Also have come up against some bugginess at checkpoints, one that basically got me past one tough situation by accident.

And holy crap (chapter 4 enemy spoiler)

I went ahead a preordered with a pro controller. We'll see how I do.
Even if the game doesn't click with you, that pro controller will be awesome.  I love mine.  Very comfortable and incredibly long battery life between charges.  My PS4 controllers drain so fast compared to the pro controller.   

I honestly don't like the stick above the buttons on the gamepad, so I'm a little worried about how the pro controller will feel. But I figure it will be better for this type of game than than the gamepad.

Played the first 2 chapters and am liking it so far. Definitely has that Resident Evil 4 feel - creepy, but not too scary, with some dodgy voice acting. It relies a lot more on stealth though and has a character upgrade system in addition to weapon upgrades.

Ammo is very scarce, so it definitely looks to be more of a true survival horror game. I died quite a few times getting the hang of things and there does seem to be a bit of trial and error involved. If you get in a bad situation, you're probably going to die.

Part of me is just glad to not be playing an open world game for the first time in a while.

I want this deal for digital editions - I have no interest in swapping MCC in and out - it will be played for quite some time, and likely never traded in.

I just don't get it.

If you buy 3 games digitally between September 4 and Nov. 30th you'll get 20K points. Not as good, but something.

For a company trying so hard to transition to digital, though, it doesn't make a ton of sense. It's probably better margins for what they sell via Amazon at least.

Outplayed and outlasted.  Romo did a hell of a job and didn't blow it.  Too bad he seems to have infected Russell with a late-game choke.  

The game shouldn't have been anywhere near that close. Seahawks should have had max 6 points if not for the bonehead plays on special teams and the botched snap.

That's me to a T, too, Teggy (ta da).

Bayonetta 1 never quite clicked with me, but I enjoyed it for a bit.  I'm hoping I get into the rhythm more this time around.

Yeah, I tried Bayonetta on 360 and failed miserably.

Yeah I feel like I am going to have to pick this up, maybe trade for it. I am terrible at these type of games, but it seems like it will be worth a go, especially since it includes Bayonetta 1 in the package.

I remember some issues with driving, but that's about it.

The ladder thing may have been a minor frustration.

Yeah, the driving is really odd. I still haven't figured out the magic to making a turn easily. Some of the cars seem to have the turning radius of a Mack truck unless you are moving at high speed.

I happen to love 3D platformers so I really like the traversal in the game, but it seems the developers just ignored things many other games have figured out, like sticking to a handhold unless the player manually jumps off.

Don't get me wrong, I still thing the game is really fun and clever. It's a kids game, but there are references in it that people under 30 probably wouldn't even understand (Starsky and Hutch, Cagney and Lacey, etc.) There's just some content that has the potential to be too frustrating to bother with.

By the way, what is the point of all the random costumes you can get, like Lagney or random fisherman guy or whatever?

Well here I am, with another thread necro as I work on some backlog. Enjoying the game but do all Lego games have such awful controls?  Jumping on to a ladder requires a perfect angle, the character randomly falls when doing the hanging walk, the character sticks at the top of of a flat topped fence and then falls off, etc.  I tried doing one of the timed free runs and I almost threw my gamepad. Won't be doing any of those events.

Been hearing a lot of bad cancer stories lately. My wife's former boss just got diagnosed with lung cancer that has spread to the brain and it's not looking good. My brother and mother are cancer survivors (thyroid and bladder, respectively) and both had fair warning, whether it be visual or via discomfort. These stories are changing my expectations of cancer, making it even more scary than it already is.

93% positive in 191 reviews

Funny how different the Metacritic user and Steam reviews are.

Nah, Steam only allows for "recommended/not recommended".

Although the Steam reviews do seem to read more positive than a 75.

Finally got around to this. I was really surprised how short it was. I finished it in 2 days, although I wasn't going for full completion. Certainly compared to Watch_Dogs which I just finished and thought was probably too long. It seemed like it could have used a third island like the other Infamous games. Maybe they spent too much time working on the all different power sets.

I also hated a bunch of the boss battles, but I thought the way they managed the different powers overall was really impressive.

Infamous 1 is still my favorite in the series because of all of the platforming and the mission design. They was more in Second Son than Infamous 2, but for the most part it was just "go here, kill everything".

Hark!  I made level 3 for FWC and no AR to be found. Please advise.   crybaby

You don't automatically get an auto rifle for getting to level 3, you just get a random legendary. FWC does not carry an AR, so it's unlikely (impossible? not sure about that) you'd get one because the random is often from the stock of the faction.

The guardian faction has an auto rifle.

By the way those crying gifs are pictures of Maggie Simpson in Tapatalk. Odd.

I am very curious about Alien but am going to wait for impressions. Plus I am hoping for an excuse to play backlog since Borderlands and Sunset Overdrive are coming up fast, plus I need to decide which, if any ill be buying out of Far Cry, Dragon Age and GTA.

Final mission spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
I don't mind not having a big boss battle, but the quick QTE bit as a resolution was a bit of a surprise. Bringing in your War chiefs to fight was pretty cool, though.

I had a ton of fun with the game but I find it hard to put it in the GOTY category because it is so derivative. We'll see, there are a lot of games left this year.

Had a fun thing happen - while doing a dagger mission I triggered a huge ghul spawn. Turned out one of the guys in the area was a captain and they killed him while I just watched and took credit.

I've hit 49% completion, which is about 15 hours in. Tilt, I've definitely seen some of the issues you've seen, I just haven't let them get to me much and I've just kind of learned to work with them. Certain surfaces I recognize as being unclimbable, I've gotten pretty good at jumping off places rather than trying to scale/drop down, if I get caught on a rock I immediately stop and figure the best way to detach myself, etc. Totally with on you Caragors, although I know there is an ability that will make this less of an issue once I get it, and I generally make a point of getting to high ground if a Caragor appears so I can mount it. In general, if things get messy I run and get out of sight because that gives me the advantage. A lot of the captains can be insta-killed from stealth and it's also fun to run around and set them on fire if they are afraid of explosions. I also make good use of the bow. Once you get the shadow step kill the amount of havoc you can set loose on an area is incredible fun - explosions, Caragors, flies, stealth kills, bow kills, and flashing around like crazy.

With regards to the bodyguards, unless I am mistaken what they mean is to kill the captains that are directly linked
(the glowing line you see on Sauron's Army page when you highlight the Warchief) to the Warchief before killing the Warchief. I think if you don't do this, they will be promoted to Warchief if you die before killing all the Warchiefs. This is what I did and I got the achievement for killing the bodyguards of two Warchiefs before killing them.
