41  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [WTF] Hot Pepper Gaming on: March 06, 2014, 05:43:33 PM
So there's this youtube channel where various reviewers and devs review or preview games. Except first they eat a really hot pepper. The results are...interesting.

42  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I bought a Wii U on: March 05, 2014, 04:15:34 PM
Total impulse buy. Newegg is selling the Skylanders Swapforce bundle + Disney Infinity starter pack for $220. After I sell off the pack-ins it will be quite a nice deal.

Now that I have every modern console and handheld plus a PC who knows when I will use it. I figure it will go well with Gamefly. At least I'll be able to play Lego City and also put away the Wii.

Wanted to post this here since it was confusing me when I saw it:

Quote
In Reaper of Souls you might notice that some affixes on items have an orange diamond next to it, and they're meant to indicate the affix will not be calculated in the item comparison tool. In other words, any affix with an orange diamond next to it won't change the red or green numbers in the item window.

Works great for me.

Do you ever have issues with it adding its own background noise, sound being delayed compared to your other speakers, or with the signal getting interrupted?

They only thing I have noticed is an occasional pop coming from the rear speakers, but it is very rare.

Regarding the connections, mine only accepts standard speaker wire with no connectors.

On PC I found that the game is performing quite well, but the prerendered cutscenes do not.

Their benchmark tool scene also takes place during a steady rain which is a lot more resource intensive than most of the game which takes place either indoors or during dry weather.

I'm still trying to figure out what the endgame is here. Every day we get another of these (today Missouri). I find it hard to believe that these states don't know these laws will be immediately challenged in the courts. Is this part of some GOTV plan for November? If so, how?  Is it just so the people who voted for it can say they they did?

Respawn has already said you'll be able to preload.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/PS4/360/PS3] Thief on: February 25, 2014, 08:12:44 PM
Eh, I don't really have any Thief baggage so I am playing on normal. Focus has a reasonable explanation in the story so I don't mind it. It only seems to highlight things that are in line of sight anyway, unlike Dark Vision in Dishonored.

Jumping has been fine so far, it is not as contextual as I was led to believe. If there is a box you can climb it without a prompt and you can jump across gaps and on to ropes. Things that aren't climbable usually look like they shouldn't be climbed, and places that you should be able to reach without the claw are not reachable unless there's a place to grab on to. Areas are tighter than Dishonored, but that makes a lot more sense in this game since you don't have the Blink power. In the first chapter there were lots of different paths to take around the small area you are given access to.

I've only played the first chapter, though.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: February 25, 2014, 04:02:31 AM
The problem with the morality system in the infamous games is that you can't make each choice separately. You have to go all bad or all good or you gimp your powers. The best thing they could do would be to make a set of "morally ambiguous" powers you would have access to if you were in between, but would lose access to if you started to go heavily in one direction.
56  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.

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.

61  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.

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.

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.

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.
