This is the one where the heavy female armor is like a thong, right? smile

I'm trying to finish up my 52 game challenge but was hoping to look at an MMO after that. If this isn't like other Wanderers games where everyone is gone after a month I might join in.

I just love that his whole premise about why there isn't as much activity on a video gaming board is because we don't criticize Obama enough. It takes a special kind of mind to come to that conclusion.

It was some Dying Light achievement, I don't know which.

I'd like to thank my parents, my elementary school teachers, and especially all of you at GT, without who this great feat would surely not be possible.

The future looks bright now - if I can accomplish this, I feel like no dream is too big.

I saw it tonight and agreed with the reviews that it takes some time to get going but finishes strong. I thought it was interesting that
Spoiler for Hiden:
they showed Janet a few times but never revealed her face.
I wonder if they have something planned for that character.

I thought it was odd that they aged
Spoiler for Hiden:
Haley Atwell to appear in the beginning of the movie but used a different actor for Howard Stark. And it is so weird seeing Martin Donovan so old, but I'm glad he is getting such broad exposure because I've been following him since his early days with Hal Hartley.

I was also glad to see
Spoiler for Hiden:
Cassie in the movie. I doubt ther will ever be a Young Avengers movie (although I would kill to see Kate Bishop in the MCU), but it was neat to have her included.

I wonder where they will take the Ant-Man character - will he get to be Goliath at some point?

I still play YMBAB every now and again, it's my goto game when I'm waiting in a line or a restaurant or whatever.  There's a lot going on but the base game is pretty simple to jump in and out of, and it has the feature I like that no matter how you do in a run, it's never "wasted" because you get some gold or other resource improvement.  So it feels like over time, you'll always be able to get enough upgrades to get you through the next challenge. 

You win every time!
49  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / You! Must! Build! A! Boat! on: July 22, 2015, 08:42:26 PM
Ok, the game is just called You Must Build A Boat, but whenever you level up your boat it flashes each word on the screen so I've taken to ( in my head) saying the name very emphatically with pauses between words.

Anyway, they were talking about this game on the bombcast as well as 10000000, so I downloaded 10000000 and beat it, while using every upgrade and useful potion, I am not ashamed to say. So now I am playing this game, which is like 10000000 on steroids. The only thing I don't like about it is I keep getting stuck on chests and there are no keys to automatically open stuff like in 10000000. Otherwise it is that same, "ok just one more run" gameplay.

Quote from: Ridah on July 08, 2015, 12:08:39 AM

Aside from the Batmobile has the game evolved much over its predecessors? I feel content with what I experienced in the first two games and Arkham Knight does not appear to have changed in any significant way. If it's just more of the same Batman we've come to know, I'd prefer to spend my gaming time on a fresher experience.

IMHO, no, but I think I made that clear in my earlier posts. I think the other games did everything better.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Batman: Arkham Knight (Rocksteady Returns) on: July 05, 2015, 06:25:40 PM
The Harley DLC is very short, but they were very clever with the way they translated Batman's moves and abilities on to her.

Finished up the story today. I got all the most wanted except for Ridler and I may give him a shot.  I have less than 100 to go but I have a feeling the races are going to be really annoying - I may YouTube his ending.

Overall maybe my favorite Arkham story, but my least favorite Arkham gameplay.

I feel like this is the Uncharted 3 of the Arkham franchise.

So what you're saying is...it's AWESOME! 

More like highly anticipated but ultimately disappointing.

Most of the side quests so far have been "do this not too exciting thing and then do it a bunch more times". Chase the APCs, beat up these guys to rescue the firefighters, beat up these other guys so you can shut down some turrets, beat up these other guys so you can shut down a checkpoint, scan this corpse
Spoiler for Hiden:
chase down Firefly or Man-Bat
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Batman: Arkham Knight (Rocksteady Returns) on: June 29, 2015, 02:26:10 AM
So how are people feeling about the game so far? I think I've done about 40% of the story missions so far and I'm finding the 9 and 10 ratings a little generous. The story itself is good and I'm curious to see where it goes, but everything else seems very half-hearted. The bat mobile adds a nice bit of variety to the formula, but it's by no means amazing gameplay. The story mission designs are pretty uninspired and just seem to peter out without boss fights, and I'm not even a big fan of boss fights. The side missions are all pretty short and repetitive. Even the joker trophies seem pretty phoned in, with most being very easy to find and some involving just shooting an item off the side of building that's easily marked on the map.

I feel like this is the Uncharted 3 of the Arkham franchise.

I hit a point where I leveled to far ahead of a batch of quests. Once they grey out you get 5 exp points for them. Kind of a bummer. And I seem to have a mess of level 12's when I'm at 19. Not sure how that happens. Almost done with them. I'm sure I will like things a lot more when I'm advancing.

Yeah it seems like the game was designed so that you do one major storyline in each area and save the other for a different play through but they didn't communicate that very well.

I do hope they have some good explanation for the setting - tons of technology but they live in caves and wear animal skins?

Looks like maybe it was a design they built a story around, and not vice versa. If it's fun it doesn't really matter I guess.

I thought it was obvious from the trailer. Technology rebelled against humanity, so humanity's use of it is very limited. It's kind of like The Matrix, only the machines are actually trying to exterminate humans directly.

Yeah, but they still use mechanical objects like their weapons - they can't make things like clothes, housing, vehicles, whatever? Why not make airplanes and bomb the monsters instead of shooting them with crazy explosive arrows?

Just got through MS conference and I just don't get how anyone can compare that to drop the mic that was Sony's. Really my only quibble, with Sony, was how long Black Ops 3 was shown.

Yeah it was wonderful when they announced Shenmue 3. Was watching the GameTrailers stream for the Sony conference and it was exclamation after exclamation for the crew that was watching, with the exception of Elise. It was great to see Huber's reaction to something that he has been hoping for, for so long. I imagine he was on a high for the entire night.

Sony had some great reveals, but I think this is the first non-console release year in a long while where both Sony and Microsoft had really good presentations. BC was a big surprise, that new controller looks cool (although I don't know if I will get one), Rare Replay looks like a great value, and the Minecraft demo of hololens was impressive. I think Sony certainly wins overall, but I wasn't disappointed by the MS show.

There is also apparently a big change coming to the xbone UI (their NXE 2.0 of sorts) but they didn't touch on it during the presentation.

No mention of Rime or The Witness?

Did anyone see any mention of these titles?  I am bummed, will they not ship this year?

I thought that Firewatch game looked cool, too.

What did you think of the Uncharted gameplay? It was so long, I kind of regret getting that amount of spoiled gameplay.

The car stuff I have to say I wasn't too crazy about.  Depends on how it controls and how the check points are, I guess.  The gun play stuff looked awesome, but didn't it seem like a level out of The Last of Us with the machine gun truck?  It did look beautiful though and I don't mind the over-the-top as that is Uncharted to me.

Well what I am curious is how flexible the route is. They took certain turns, but it seemed like you could take different ones. They haven't really forced much trial and error in to previous Uncharted games (although certainly in Uncharted 2 there is often an easiest way to getting past some obstacles) so if you are free to drive different ways to avoid the gun truck I think that will be a lot of fun.

The gunfight looked really brutal - you really can't stay still behind destructible cover for long and the enemy fire looked to knock off a lot of health. The firefights will require a lot of movement.

I don't want to read through this thread to avoid spoilage, but I am so obsessed with this game right now. It looks so amazing on PC I'm just constantly being stunned by the views and staring at little textures and facial movements. And of course it doesn't just look good, the writing is fantastic, the voice acting is top notch, the combat is fun and there is an incredible world full of places to explore. There are certainly many more games to come this year, but it has the feel of a GOTY to me, maybe even something that will have a place on my list of really special games like Uncharted 2, Deus Ex, Ratchet and Clank, etc.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Horizon Zero Dawn on: June 16, 2015, 02:41:17 PM
