Easily the third best open world game I've played on the PS4, well behind AC4 and inFamous. Just not doing it for me.

Top 3 ain't bad!

They did some surveys and it's looking pretty equal with a slight weight toward Exile. I'm going to join the GAF guild which is pve Dominion.

Did you pick a specific server?  And what is the GAF guild?

Looks like Orias at the moment. It's a guild with a core of people from NeoGAF, but since it's not expected to be huge they are welcoming friends and others that aren't GAF members.

The game is hell on the ADD gamer.

<on way to stop a crime>
Hey, there's a DIFFERENT crime over there!
Hey, there's a car to steal over there!
Hey, there's a crazy VR game over here!
Hey, there's yet ANOTHER crime over there!

I'm feeling kind of bad stealing from cancer patients and stuff. I kind of wish they did punish you for that. Instead I just hack everything so I don't notice whose life I am ruining smile

Kind of funny thing, changing a traffic light almost always causes a multi-car accident and does a lot of damage to all the cars. I used a traffic light to stop a guy, then got a phone call after I took him down. Cars were exploding all the way through the call icon_lol

I've been stealing money from a lot of people who probably don't deserve it. Oh well. Interesting that it doesn't effect your reputation in any way.

FWIW my lag-free experience was with my PC tower going hard line to my router, then WiFi to the MacBook.

Yeah, unfortunately putting my PC on the wired network is a little tricky. PS4 remote play works pretty well for me, and in that case the source machine is wired.

I don't actually have any strong feelings about this Kinect issue, so I'm not trying to say anyone is right or anything.  I was just following the argument from the sidelines, and it seemed pretty clear that TiLT was saying one thing and Teggy was hearing another.


Fair enough, I went back and reread the thread while you were writing up your response and summarized in my edit above.

Quote from: Bullwinkle on May 13, 2014, 09:18:15 PM

Teggy, I hate to say it, but you have missed TiLT's point.

Well then go for it, explain it to me.

EDIT: also just to note, my original reply was to Jaydee, not to Tilt, and it was specifically regarding the terms "forced down my throat". Tilt then proceeded to jump in as if he wrote the words.

EDIT2: and just to be fair I have read back through the thread. If the point that you believe I am missing is that Tilt/Jaydee don't want to buy an Xbone with a kinect because it somehow validates Microsoft's business strategy, no I didn't miss that. However, the conversation did stray away from that and I think my point was diluted/missed because of that. My initial response was specifically to the words "forced down my throat", which I really felt was the wrong way to describe what was going on. I have no problem in anyone expressing their disapproval of a product with their dollars, but I do think that the level of personal insult taken by a business decision can be taken out of hand.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: May 13, 2014, 09:24:55 PM
That's fine, you can take your ball and go home.

Although I'm still very curious about what this opinion is that I don't understand and what I'm trying to change.

I simply am stating fact. Microsoft is a business. It does not owe you a kinectless sku and are not forcing you to do anything. Putting out a single Xbox sku was not arrogant it's called a marketing plan (without comment on whether it was a good or not) And to say that they are forcing anything "down your throat" is needlessly melodramatic at best and kind of offensive at worst.

Microsoft is not forcing you to do anything. Your "consumer rights" in this case is not to buy their product, but don't act like they have infringed on those rights in any way.

And that's exactly what I'm doing. Not buying their products. As long as I'm not buying it, they're not forcing anything at all (at this point, let me remind you that it wasn't me who said "force down your throat"). However, if I had decided to purchase, the only option would be for me to also buy a Kinect, or I wouldn't have gotten the product I really wanted. That's force.

In short, you didn't actually understand, just like I said.

You didn't say "force down your throat" but you defended the term. You can say I don't understand all you want but that doesn't make it true. What you don't seem to understand is how business works. Microsoft does not owe you a Kinect-less Xbone, no matter how much you want one. They are not forcing you to buy one. If you don't want a kinect in your package, you don't buy the system. That's a lost sale to Microsoft, so tough on them and tough on you. This idea that MS is a terrible company because they didn't offer a kinectless sku is preposterous. Yup, they opened up your wallet, stole out the money and bolted a kinect to your television. Oh wait, no they didn't.

But now they are offering a Kinectless sku so the whole thing is moot, so you can now go out and support this company that you hate.

For those who are now saying they're interested in an Xbox One without the Kinect, do you realize you could have gotten one with the Kinect for $450 with a free game and a year of Xbox Live a few weeks ago?  Effectively making it a $390 console plus a game.  Are you really that adamantly against Kinect that not having one is a better deal than having one with free games for the same price?

Yes. To me it was a statement, even if it was $390. I didn't want Kinect and was not willing to buy a system with Kinect forced down my throat. Voting with my dollars and all that.

Really? "Forced down your throat"? You've been able to disconnect the Kinect from day 1.

Do you really not understand what he meant? He doesn't want to buy the Kinect. He's not talking about actually using it. It's "forced down his throat" because he was previously forced to buy a Kinect if he wanted an Xbox One.

How is it being "forced down your throat" (other than that being a terrible choice of words for what is actually happening). You buy the box, you play the games, the kinect sits in the packaging forever or gets sold. You make it sound like Microsoft made an assault on your civil liberties.

I get it. You don't understand. That's also why you don't see it as a problem. Let it go, man. Let it go. People have different ideas about consumer rights vs arrogant corporations. Some don't see the problem when corporations make choices for them. I do. You don't have to understand it. Just accept it.

No, I get it, you don't want to buy a product at its current price and configuration and are using overly exaggerated terminology to express it in order to perpetuate some sort of perceived system war or to shed negative light on a company you don't like.

Microsoft is not forcing you to do anything. Your "consumer rights" in this case is not to buy their product, but don't act like they have infringed on those rights in any way.

I played the first adventure this morning which was pretty fun. It was a bit nerve-wracking because I played healer and I've never played healer in anything before. There was some death but the group was nice so no problem. Keeping everyone in front of you while dodging tons of telegraphs is a challenge. Can't imagine what esper healing is like when you have to stand still.

Very solid entry in the arcade golf genre. Just tons of different modes to play and gear to collect, and the online support is amazingly good for a Nintendo game. You can create a community for people to join and then there's no need to exchange Nintendo SSNs.

It's not the second coming of Advance Tour, but well worth the $30 (and $15 for the season pass).

The following comment is not directed at ATB.  To my knowledge, he has never expressed the beliefs referenced below.

I find it fascinating that, when topics like Affirmative Action, the Equal Rights Amendment, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, or even articles of the Civil Rights Act are raised, Conservatives talk about their boundless faith in how the Invisible Hand of the Free Market would smooth away all forms of social discrimination if only all those burdensome legal protections were out of the way.

When the Very Material Hand of the Free Market comes around and smacks the hell out of some fantastically wealthy guy for spewing such toxic prejudices that there's a huge social and economic backlash, however, suddenly those same Conservatives are vocally upset that there are free market repercussions for his behavior.  "Intolerance of his intolerance is the worst intolerance of all!"

This is true - thought "crime" implies he broke a law. No such thing happened here. A private business made a private decision that they felt was in their best interest.

Starting to get a bit burned out with the grind at 39. I was enjoying the questing for however many hours I've done it so far,  but there's so little variation in what you are doing at this point that it's getting kind of boring. The suggested levels for dungeons are so narrow, and very few people are using the dungeon finder anyway. Other than that there is WvW, but I'm not really into the big zerg thing. And that's kind of it as far as what you can do in the game for now. I'd like to get to 50 for the story, but I'm not feeling it a whole lot at the moment.
