Dallas 9-4 and on the outside looking in. Man.

I'm pretty sure that they can help their own cause when they play Phillie next week.  If they lose, they don't deserve to be on the inside.

They could still make the wild card with a loss. If they lose to Washington in Week 17, then they don't deserve to be on the inside.

Until next week. I hope.

And the NFC South gets uglier. Either Atlanta or NO is guaranteed a 6th win, but other than that, who knows.

So far so good, I'm really liking it. It's basically just Far Cry 3 - Cry Harder, but I loved FC3 so it's all good.

First thing I did was set myself up for an alternate ending (major spoiler below):

Spoiler for Hiden:
At the beginning of the game, Pagan Min tells you to wait and he'll be right back. If you do wait (approximately 12-15 mins), he comes back, you get on a chopper together. He flies you to a shrine where you place your mother's urn and credits roll. If you just do what you're told, you don't have to deal with all the bullshit of actually playing 30 hours. I laughed out loud.



Is this for real?

Yes, although it reveals a pretty major story spoiler.

Here's the bit I was remembering. I guess they didn't go into as much detail as I recalled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=uXvvc5MEqfE#t=90

At the end of the game Sully gives Nate his wedding ring back and he wears it for Elena, implying they are back together. There were probably other references to the ring in the game (Nate thinks he's lost it, I think) but I don't recall exactly where they were.

maybe I forgot the ending of 3, but it looks like Nathan is married.  He's wearing a wedding ring it seems.

He got married between games 2 and 3. Part of the plot of the third game revolves around this topic.

Weird I don't remember anything of it.

I don't think they state it outright, but it's pretty obvious. He isn't wearing the ring during the game, but he both talks about it and carries it with him. At the end, he puts it back on.

I may be remembering the details wrong, but this should be the gist of it.

He definitely has a conversation with Elena in 3 about their separation. It's made pretty clear.

I'm looking forward to this one. I exchanged my unopened copy of Assassin's Creed: Unity for it last night. I'll pick up Unity again at some point because I have a feeling it will be getting some deep discounts sooner rather than later. I was going to get GTA V, but ultimately needed my Ubisoft climbing towers fix.  icon_biggrin

Joking aside, they towers are pretty good in this. They actually add more quirks to them as the game goes on, making them less boring than the ones in Far Cry 3.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Street Fighter V on: December 07, 2014, 12:44:13 PM
The strange bit about this is that besides RE, isn't Street Fighter the one property that Capcom owns that is a guaranteed seller? Maybe even more so than RE. They keep pumping out RE games, seems it would be a no-brainer to our SFV on as many platforms as possible. They have enough money to put out RE Revelations 2 (on Vita as well), but not a fighter, which must cost a lot less to make than a story-based game?

I was speaking only on the topic of scariness/creepiness.

Me too.

Um...you specifically said that you think that Aliens was a better game from a technical standpoint. That has nothing to do with it being scary.

I'm now through chapter 4 I think and the game feels more like a stealth game than a horror game. Maybe it gets scarier later?  I think for me the setting makes it a lot less scary - the ship is very clean. Also, I already know the nature of all the enemies so there's nothing really scary about them other than they can surprise me at times.

Teggy, no 8-8 for you!  I did read that Romo has a broken rib in addition to his back issues though.

Other than the defense taking off the 4th quarter they looked a lot better last night. But the Bears are not Philly. Romo neglected to take a pain killer before the Philly game, and combined with the short rest it didn't help. That doesn't excuse the defense in the first half of that game, though. Hopefully with another 10 days rest they'll be in great shape for the game next week. It's pretty much a must-win.

The Philly-Seattle game this week will also have some interesting playoff implications. Guy on ESPN said he thought Arizona won't even make the postseason.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alien: Isolation announced - kinda looks good? on: December 04, 2014, 09:33:24 PM
Oh, one additional thing. IMHO between this and Evil Within I have found Evil Within to be much scarier. Alien is tense, but Evil Within is filled with creepy monsters and blood and all sorts of insanity, and that gets to me wound up a lot more than just fear of the unknown.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alien: Isolation announced - kinda looks good? on: December 04, 2014, 09:26:13 PM
Early game spoilers:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Well, I just finished the chapter where you have to get up the elevator after evading the looters. I think I had to start over a good 10 times just getting out of the main area. Enemies that can see you across the room in the dark and have pinpoint aim? No indication at all of where you're supposed to go? I don't mind limited hand holding, but that was kind of severe for what is really the first encounter in the game. I just picked up the motion tracker, so hopefully it will get a little easier.
177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Alien: Isolation announced - kinda looks good? on: December 04, 2014, 02:31:19 AM
Well I started playing this today for some reason. Maybe I like to poop my pants.

I played up until the intro of the Alien (spoilers! There's an alien in this!) and had a laugh when
Spoiler for Hiden:
I decided I needed to look around the train car before transporting to the next area and the Alien ran in and killed me. And then I got an achievement.
178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Far Cry 4 on: December 02, 2014, 05:06:17 AM
One little thing they could have done to make this game better is to cut the number of propaganda posters in half. I know they are optional, but there are bonuses for getting them, and 150 posters is pure busywork that no one should have to do. 50-75 posters with more bonus per poster would have been perfect and would let you better balance moving around the map and doing quests. After getting about half of the posters I'm in danger of getting burned out so I am going to start mainlining the game a bit. I think I'll get all the towers but I'll likely leave some outposts, pois and collectibles. 

The masks are the most well done of the collectibles, where you are not told exactly where they are and they can be in hard to find places. The journals and letters are much fewer in number, so they're not too bad, but could have been done like the masks.

I think the funny thing about the game is that the story missions are some of the least interesting content. I love trying to stealth outposts (or just trampling everyone with an elephant), hunting, saving hostages, disarming the bombs, climbing, etc. I don't want to have all my weapons and abilities taken away to do another drug trip story mission. 

It's a very fun game and I definitely recommend it if you liked Far Cry 3, and if you didn't play FC3, I would just skip it and play this one.

As in they'll do it again on Xmas or that's just what happens every Xmas because too many people are playing?
180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Styx: Master of Shadows [PC/PS4/XB1] on: December 01, 2014, 04:52:31 AM
I'm really enjoying the level design in this game. The one thing I'm finding a bit frustrating is that being in shadows doesn't mean you won't be seen. I think the times it has happened I have made some noise, but even the tiniest amount of noise allows you to be seen even if you are totally in the dark. Something I'll just have to keep in mind.

You have to be really careful because the physics on the objects is kind of wonky. I knocked over a broom and startled someone, which I guess makes sense, but I also barely brushed up against a chair and the thing bounced about a foot away and made a ton of noise.

Actually, a crossguard on a lightsaber makes complete sense.

Think of swordfighting. Okay, so the two of you clash up with your blades. All one person needs to do is shift their force downward and suddenly their blade is chopping off fingers if there's no crossguard to get into the way.

Frankly it's something that was needed for a while now on a Lightsaber - some kind of protection to the hand wielding the thing.


Yes, but it would probably make more sense to make it out of a cortosis weave.

Well, that Storm Trooper isn't a clone of Jango Fett

Stormtroopers aren't clones in the first place, so that makes sense. The Empire stopped with the cloning business sometime between episode 3 and 4, and instead started recruiting their elite soldiers. Hence "stormtrooper" instead of "clone trooper".

Yeah, I'm going to need a citation for this, and don't say it was in the books because we all know they're not canon biggrin

That certainly was a teaser - not even a frame of Harrison Ford or something?

I keep running into silly things like a boat that sank on top of the guy with a key so I couldn't continue on my mission and spawning into a race only to get immediately smacked in the face by a van.

But that aside I can't stop playing. It's just fun. I don't think there's a mission type I don't like. I probably won't do much of the races (already got the achievement), but even they're pretty fun, especially when you have to change vehicles part way.

I'd like to know if honey badgers are really that vicious though.

Getting blindsided by a rhino is not fun. Happened to me twice.

Game feels a lot more deadly than FC3. I'm dying a lot - animals, snipers, etc. I like that you have to move bodies and the new climbing. Don't like that I got stuck in a rock and also fell through the world to my death.

Mordor was definitely a surprise. It wasn't even on my radar until reviews hit. Also, Thief. Every seemed to want to crap on it, but I had a lot of fun with it.
