The Bills can't even get a good draft pick right.
42  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Biggest disappointment of the year 2015 on: December 21, 2015, 07:43:00 PM
I had three big anticipated games this year, Uncharted, Tomb Raider and Batman. Uncharted didn't come out, Tomb Raider exceeded my expectations, so that leaves Batman. It's by no means a bad game, but I don't think it lived up to Rocksteady's standards, so I think that is definitely the biggest disappointment.

On the other end, I'd say biggest surprise was probably BLOPS3. I almost didn't even buy it, and while I didn't put a ton of time in, I was genuinely impressed by the package they put together. There's a ton of value on that disc.

It's likely going to be Witcher 3 as I don't see anything overtaking it. Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a solid second. Lots of games with things to like will fill out the rest including Fallout 4, MGSV, Ori and the Blind Forest, Xenoblade, Dying Light, Life is Strange and BLOPS (mostly for the value it offers). I don't know if it counts in the GT GOTY, but Darksiders 2 Deathinitive will probably get a top 5 spot in my full submission for the NeoGAF GOTY thread. I just had a lot of fun with that game.

I'll hopefully also get Undertale in before the deadline, but I don't know if I will be falling for the hype.

I unfortunately won't be getting Pillars of Eternity played, and just couldn't get myself into Bloodborne, same for Rocket League but for entirely different reasons. I also can't in good conscience put Arkham Knight in my top 10 unless I somehow run out of candidates. I'd likely put Mad Max ahead of it, for one.

You may want to check your other data nodes and change any with a White Cometite potential over to mining probes.  After that, it should just be a matter of keeping your hoppers empty so the probes can do their work.  It's rare enough that even sites that have it will take time to produce, so you may want to hang out in NLA and let the game run while your minerals come in.

-Autistic Angel

Yeah, I found a second node and set each of them up with 3-chains of level 2 mining nodes and finally got 1 to drop. But I guess I'm just going to have to putz around or just leave the game running. Kind of silly.

What hoppers are you referring to?
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 20, 2015, 09:11:47 PM
I have a quest objective to get 4 white comatite from FrontierNav. I found a node that can have white comatite and dropped a level 7 mining thing on it and then headed off to do other stuff. After at least 2 hours I haven't gotten any white comatite. What am I doing wrong?

We showed up to the theater and the projector was broken. No joke.

Tony Romo was seen leaving the premises with a sledgehammer.

Matt Cassel probably would have missed the projector and hit the popcorn machine!

And the popcorn machine would have scored a touchdown for the defense.

In case you missed it, the Cowboys blew yet another game and have finally been eliminated. At least Cassel was benched in the process.

I am at the point of no return with this game, well almost.  I have gotten to where the game has told me that once I progress, there are no further camps, so no backtracking, weapon upgrades or skill upgrades.  I have about 90% completion and have backed out to get a few of the upgrades I can get before I start the end-game sequence.  I intend to finish this up tonight, but unlike the previous game, I doubt I will be going back for the 100% completion.  It's not that the game isn't worth it, but after 30+ hours, I'll have lost the drive to pick everything up.  Great game, if not for the stumble of launching across from Fallout and with the stigma of the exclusivity deal. 

You can go back after you finish if you want. It's only a temporary point of no return.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Xenoblade Chronicles X on: December 16, 2015, 05:55:41 PM
It's hilarious how little this game explains to you. I discovered the menu that lets you change your class completely by accident last night. I was wondering why I hadn't earned any skills yet.

It's surprising, because Xenoblade Chronicles actually had very good tutorials. I had to learn everything in this game from the manual. Maybe they expect you to know stagger and topple from the previous game (which would be kind of a silly assumption), but the voices thing I had to learn from the manual, among other things.

Quote from: Teggy on December 15, 2015, 03:06:27 PM

I haven't noticed the battle music (too much going on, probably) but holy hell the music in town drives me up a wall. The overworld music is nice and orchestral but once I walk into town and that drum machine starts up, ugh.

So I have a question - it took me forever to get 15% map completion to advance the story because it seemed I had to run over the map activating nodes. Now I've read through the manual a bit and it turns out clearing the activity on any hex will contribute to map completion. But I don't understand how to find the other activities be it tyrant or treasure box or whatever. It says you can sometimes get clues added to the map if you talk to people in town but I don't seem to have found those clues. Any hints on how to find these things?

Look for people in town who have a yellow dialog bubble above their head, instead of the standard green one.  When you pass by one, they will give you a short bit of info and you'll see a message that says something like "New Segment info in Primorida".  Look for the "new" marker on your segment map and tap on it.  It will then show what the specific task/collectible/tyrant is for that sector.  Once you find/kill the objective, you'll get a gold "complete" shield and it will increase your completion percentage.  Just be aware that sometimes the thing it unlocks won't be doable until way later.  Got two new ones last night...one for a level 58 tyrant (I'm level 28) and one that required a level 5 Mechanical field skill.

I've found that finding the yellow dialogs sometimes requires you to run around town at different times of day and in different weather conditions.  Went to the residential district at night in the rain, and it unlocked three of them that previously weren't available.

OK, I've definitely gotten some of those, I'll have to look more closely at my map.

BTW, I think the multiplayer concept that they have in the game is really cool, but I couldn't imagine trying to coordinate with randoms, especially without voice chat.

Why did your Bills let me down ATB?

I'm going to regret watching this game, aren't I?

Because they suck.  Their coach sucks. The organization sucks. The only thing great about the Bills is their fans.

15 penalties!?

They should have fired Ryan at the bye. 

Ryan sucks. Pegula sucks. I wish the whole team had moved to Canada and that they tore down rich stadium and salted the earth around it.


Did you watch the 30 for 30 about the 4 straight SB losses? Bet that would be fun.

You called it

Well at least the Cowboys still have Dan Bailey.

And the Cowboys beat the best team in the division! slywink

They actually have the best division record lol. And they can hold on to it if they beat Washington again and Philly doesn't beat both the Giants and Washington. NFC Least!

Good luck against GB Tongue

I am sad that NE got the win. But man, that kick was beautiful. 54 yards like it was nothing and it probably could have gone 3-5 more.  I just hope the Jints beat them up enough so that Buffalo can capitalize this weekend.

And Teg is one of my favorite forum people, but I am absolutely delighting in the Cowboy's season. 7 straight losses. Awesome!

And Manning gets benched on the night he sets the all time record. The world sho gon crayzy!

Why you gotta hurt me like that?

Survivor run done! It actually wound up not being nearly as hard as I expected because there are some very effective weapons.

I'm still torn on whether I want to do the score attacks. I tried one and it seems like fairly small mistakes can wind up with you losing your combo. Could lead to a lot of frustration. I bought the season pass when I probably shouldn't have. I might sell/trade now and then pick it up again at a cheaper price once the season pass stuff starts appearing.

The shooting is also good. I haven't used VATS at all and I used it extensively in Fallout 3 and a good 25% of the time in New Vegas.

Yup, I've been noticing this too. VATS comes in handy in certain situations, but otherwise it's playing very well as a FPS.

When I hit about ten hours in I was feeling very meh about the game, but now that I've hit about twenty hours I'm really enjoying it. However, I would say that part of a reason (maybe a big part of the reason) is the settlement activity. It gives a reason to go wandering around looking for fans and radios and other odd stuff.



I assume you guys are playing PC? The shooting on consoles is... bad.

Yes, although I don't know why it would be different on console.
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Fallout 4 on: November 16, 2015, 10:50:12 PM
Yup, Fallout 4 has bugs, a kind of dumb conversation system and a silly story.

But damn if I don't love being in that world. Walking around in the woods finding new places to explore and safes to crack. Going inside these blasted out buildings with maze-like structures hiding who knows what? That stuff is addictive and there's so much of it. This is why Bethesda can get away with what they do.

After a week out, I already have more time into this game than I did in Advanced Warfare.

It is so good.  But what I sad on Friday still stands. It's very hard.  I don't know if that's because most of the casual players have jumped to the PS4 leaving a more 'hardcore' shooter base on the XB1, or if people are just adapting to the play style faster and it's taking me a bit longer.


Sorry to break the news to you, but you are getting old and losing your skillz. It is permanent and nothing can be done about it.

The game will come out on PS4 next year, will look great, have all sorts of nice quotes on the cover and it will sell fine.

Looks like I have a bug that's going to prevent me from 100%ing my save so hopefully there will be a patch for that. I'm a good way into my second run as well (on survivor difficulty). I've been making it through ok, but I have definite concerns about a few upcoming parts.
