161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Been reading a bunch of superhero comics, here's what I think on: February 24, 2014, 05:11:13 PM
I mentioned in the Guardians of the Galaxy thread that I am reading a whole mess of Cosmic Marvel comics on Unlimited to get some background before the movie comes out. It's quite a few issues so I've been getting a good picture of how the Marvel universe works.

-first of all, I think Marvel's goal is to bankrupt their readers. If you are not content to wait for several years before reading comics on Unlimited you get bombarded with all sorts of crossover stuff. I was reading Nova, which brought up the New Warriors. This brought me to the events that sparked off the Civil War. OK, Civil War added to reading list. What's this, Civil War touched no less than a dozen titles? Secret Invasion? Another dozen at least. Somewhere there is a kid on a street corner inside a cardboard box filled with Marvel comics.

-there are too many damn superheroes.  When Star-Lord is called back into action they toss him into a team with all sorts of random stuff. Bug, Captain Universe (really?), Deathcry, Mantis (the Celestial Madonna?), Rocket Raccoon and Groot. RR and Groot are cool together and even Mantis and Bug have their moments, but it's just too much. New Warriors have all sorts of randoms. Starjammers? And the thing that I find the laziest is when they just create a villain by letting a guy steal powers from heroes. Super-Skrull (maybe not always a villain) is just a guy with all of the Fantastic Four's powers, and Super-Adaptoid is just a guy with all the Avengers' powers.

But overall there is some cool stuff. Some of the writing is pretty bad, but Star-Lord has been good and I liked Wraith a lot, even though his series ended with some gobbledygook. Kind of curious what happens to him in Conquest because he doesn't have his own book. Nova is pretty good as well. Quasar gets pretty damn dumb at times.

I've read a bunch old X-Men as well (still need to read the Dark Phoenix saga), and that can be kind of hard because even the books from the 70's were just terribly cheesy.

Interesting how steep the level curve gets at the end

You should read some of the stories about the kids that get on those "mag crews". Pretty awful stuff - they can wind up stuck across the country from their home with no way to get back because their employers are restricting their money. A lot if them also steal things from people's houses. When I read about that and found out how much they also ripped people off on the magazines I never talked to them again.

I've liked this show so far but the last episode was pretty awful. It was like the writer learned about computers from reading some bad cyberpunk. "I'm the best hacker and when I hack I can totally outhack anyone hack hack hackity hack. And I wear all black and I'm super cool."
166  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / My iOS backlog is my worst backlog on: February 20, 2014, 10:10:09 PM
Sure, my Steam backlog is huge, but at least I chip away it. I buy plenty of iOS games and then never play them because they're like 99 cents or less. I haven't even played the ones that cost a reasonable amount of money (Republique, Device 6, Deus Ex, etc.)  I think I just don't care for playing on the touchscreen. But I keep buying. Oh well.

I still don't get all the Bioshock Infinite hate, most of which I've heard from press. It was my GOTY last year and I couldn't stop playing it once I started, and pondered the ending for days after I completed it.

I think most of the people who didn't like it felt it had an engaging world/story/characters that then required you to run around it needlessly blowing stuff up.

Did we really expect another Irrational Bioshock? Bioshock 2 wasn't even done by Irrational. Didn't think they'd want to spend another how many years designing another Bioshock universe. I thought Infinite tied up the story nicely.

I've been reading all of these comics:

I've only read most of the first column so far, but Peter Quill is not quite so comical, although he is wise-cracking. I have a lot more to read, though.

Played again last night and got to level 14.  Had a really fun time..but there's just something off (with me?).  I don't have that 'OMG can't wait to get back to play it' thing going on.  BF4 may have ruined me for all other shooters.

That said, still not canceling the preorder just yet. smile

It's because there's two k/d ratios. It's making you confused about your actual skill slywink

There are two K/D ratios?

Yes, one for all kills and one for pilot-only kills.

I'll always use the play and charge or standalone charger if one exists, for other stuff I use the Duracell AA rechargeables. Drives me crazy when I have to put those wafer sized batteries in devices that would very easily fit a AA.

I love the official MS charger they had for 360, I wish they would come out with one for the xbone.

The thing I'm finding a little funny is how opposing grunts meet up in spots and then pose themselves and then freeze until a pilot comes by so it looks like you're saving some grunt from certain death.

I've got an extra XB1 code for the taking. Please post here to claim instead of PMing as I'll be offline for a bit.

I would take it so I can play with you guys, but I could understand giving it to someone who doesn't have a code at all.

Do you guys use the "always run" setting? It doesn't seem like slowing down makes as much sense in this game as CoD but I've left it on the standard settings so far.

the fight against the Monk and White Mage
and I used a friend summon because I kind of wanted to see how it worked and also I thought I might die against them and I killed them with one attack.

Now I feel like I kind of cheated and there's no way to redo that part other than starting the whole game over. frown

Teggy you might be interested in this article.

Quote from: Article for Teggy
Titanfall is a game that offers many advantages to people who arenít very good at first-person shooters.

The game doesnít tilt the scales in favor of the still-learning, the older or the slow, but it does provide less-skilled players many ways to excel. It doesnít offer anyone a better way to play, exactly. But it does go out of its way to offer many different ways of playing, depending on your skill set.

If you believe your existence in the Call of Duty series is mostly to act as a punching bag, this may be the game youíve been waiting for.

Hey, what are you trying to imply? slywink

So far I haven't seen any helicopters to shoot down. This game blows.

This game is definitely not CoD. And it has gun you don't even have to aim - perfect for me slywink

yeah i saw that gun in the training..first thing i thought about was its influence Online(which i have yet to try)

It's really not OP because it is primarily helpful against the AI bots which are not too hard to kill. With a human you they have to be in your sights long enough for you to get 3 locks on them and pull the trigger. By then, they've probably killed you first, or they're not looking at you, which means you might have killed them with a standard weapon as well. But it is helpful for people who aren't great shots for contributing.

I enjoyed Rage (although wouldn't have cried if it didn't have the racing) and need to go back at some point and play the DLC.

It has one of the worst endings of all time, though.
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: February 13, 2014, 10:49:14 PM
So it's a game were you can rocket-pack off of walls and jump into giant robots to fight but has realistic ammo management.

It was garbage (and I'm a fairly forgiving viewer).  Pacing was bad, the action lacked any tension or excitement, writing stunk.  There were a couple enjoyable scenes throughout, and some of the concepts they were trying to address were interesting (focused on the humanizing aspect more), but it was just too poorly executed to pay off.  Dull


Do they explain why he has one human hand?

This is turn-based? Weird, every video I've ever seen of the game made it seem like an action spin off.

No, it isn't turn-based.  You can assign up to 4 actions (one each to a controller button).  You then pick those actions and they use so much of a bar.  If that bar goes empty, you can switch over to another "class" which has its own bar.  It's all real time.

But it's not like DMC, right? That's what I thought it was all this time.

194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Here come the remakes of mediocre 80's movies on: February 11, 2014, 01:10:40 AM
I guess they ran out of 60s and 70s movies to remake, because we're starting to see a trend of passable 80's movies starting to be remade.

Red Dawn, Footloose and Arthur possibly got the ball rolling, although there was at least some history and nostalgia to those few. However, this week we'll get "About Last Night...", a remake of the forgettable Rob Lowe/Demi Moore vehicle now with an all-black cast, and "Endless Love", a remake of a Brooke Shields movie more well known for the theme song performed by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross (the second was based on a book, but I don't know if this one takes more inspiration from the text or the film).

What's next? A remake of Porky's set in modern day? Moscow on the Hudson starring Andy Samberg?  Cobra starring Duane Johnson?

Titanfall on the PC will require Origin   I know EA  has made Origin better, but I still refuse to download it... 


Anyway, I'm buying digitally from MS anyway

You're buying the Xbox One version digitally?


Sure, so am I.
I think you missed his point

I'm still missing it  retard

He's going to have to deal with origin regardless of where he DL's it.

When I got BF4 it created an account for me...sooooooooooooooooooooooo probably ditto for Titanfall.

Oh, you mean you have to login to Origin on the Xbone? I don't recall that with BF4 but it's possible. But you don't have to download an Origin client or anything.
