41  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Game of the Month Discussion, Mar/Apr 2009: Deus Ex Game of the Year on: March 16, 2015, 02:41:26 AM
Hey look, I'm bumping an ancient thread.

The reason is I am deep into Deux Ex again and hoping to finish it this time. I've gotten further than I ever have before, but my recent bad luck (losing 5 hours of progress in Ori) has hit me again. This time I have only lost about 1.5 hours, but I'm still hoping to avoid having to play over again.

What I think caused this is I was getting on to Jock's helicopter and was killed during the conversation. So I think part of the game thinks I'm dead and part of the game thinks I'm alive. The result is that I can walk around in the next area, but I can't use my arms. I can choose the pistol, but it doesn't show up in my hands and I can't shoot, and the same for anything else. If I try to pick up a box it says my hands aren't empty.

I've done a bunch of googling but haven't found a solution to this issue. I figured I would ask here to see if anyone knows any console commands that might fix it or something.


EDIT: Nevermind, I wound up just playing over the parts I had to. It turned out for the best because I found some secrets I had missed before.

Are the leaderboards hacked on both PC and console?


I haven't seen the pc leaderboards but it wouldn't surprise me. So many leaderboards on Xbox get hacked, I wish they would realize this. They're always topped by people finishing games in .1 seconds or having 99999999999 points or whatever.

Holy crap. I was 9.5 hours in, around 70% completion I think, and I went through a door that required 4 keys and then killed a bird and then saved my game. I realized I was pretty sure I needed that bird to proceed but it wouldn't respawn. Then I noticed it still showed 4 keys in my inventory. I quit out of the game hoping it would resolve itself, but when I logged back in the save it had was from only 4.5 hours played. I just feel dejected now and don't want to play the game.

Wow...are you playing on PC?
No, xbone.

That's got to be hacked like every other leaderboard. I'd like to see a video of someone doing a zero death run. There's so many easy ways to die. I'm currently at 55% and 555 deaths.

I'm a little discouraged by these MacBooks, actually. My current Macbook Pro from 2011 has Firewire, 2 USB ports a DVD drive and a reasonable AMD graphics card. Is Apple done making full-featured notebook computers?

EDIT: I'm a dummy, they still make MacBook Pros.

I really can't get into VR until I start seeing how games support it. No way am I buying more than one of these headsets because EA only supports one and Ubisoft supports another or whatever.

That's not going to happen. Unless a title is a paid exclusive, it's in those companies best interests to make their titles work on both available VR sets. The market will be small enough initially anyway, and they don't need to make it smaller.

Both? We've already got Valve, Sony, Oculus and I assume Microsoft.

By the way, I'm not sure what this is supposed to be showing. This girl appears to be wearing the same gold and light blue dress in both pictures.
62  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What the Hell Color is This Dress? on: February 27, 2015, 09:56:47 PM
I see white/gold, but I have no argument that the dress is actually blue/black. I mean, it is, there are other pictures of it.

I'm curious as to why different people see it differently. I've read I guess 2 different explanations, one that is biological (the rods/cones thing) and another that seems to revolve around perception/psychology. I'd like to know which is right.

I've heard other people say that it has changed to black/blue for them, which suggests some psychological aspect to it, but no matter how many times I see the picture - rotated, tilted, color corrected, whatever, I always see it gold and white.

Was this unpreventable? I'm actually surprised the parents are getting so much sympathy based on the description.

There's only so much you can do to kid-proof the entire world.  If the kid had never left his room on his own before, let alone solo opened the front door to the house, I think it's understandable that the parents never saw that as a high risk for that kid.

I've got a fishtank in my house, and conceivably my 4.5 year old could quietly leave her room while we were sleeping, walk downstairs, drag a stepstool of some sort over to the fishtank, open the lid, fall in, and drown.  But my daughter has never exhibited any behavior around the fishtank that would make her seem interested in doing anything remotely close to that action, and she doesn't even ever leave her room on her own unless we open the door for her or tell her over the baby monitor that she can come downstairs.

Should I find some way to completely strap down the lid to the fishtank even though it's seems extraordinarily unlikely that anything would actually happen?  I mean, I admit talking through the fishtank scenario now makes me want to strap down the lid out of the self-induced fear I just gave myself, but I'm sure if I put my mind to it (and hated myself) I could think of even more hypothetical deadly scenarios for my kids.

I guess when my daughter was even younger but not using a crib, I did have a childproof doohickey on her bedroom door knob to stop her from leaving her room on her own, so maybe there was more the parents in the OP could've/should've done.  But I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt unless I hear otherwise.

edit to my previous post:  I misread Roman's post the first time and didn't realize it was an unrelated other citizen who did the crowdfunding rather than the toddler's parents.  That changes everything, and if he keeps a single dime for his own personal benefit then yes, he's going to hell.

I wasn't specifically judging, I was more curious if there were any more details to the case, like the parents were out partying and left the kid home alone or something.

Gunslinger is definitely fun and very focused on shooting stuff. Wolfenstein actually has significant interstitial sections where you are chatting with npcs and has stealth aspects. Still a fun game, though.
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: A good, basic FPS? on: February 23, 2015, 02:26:07 AM
You mention liking Far Cry 3, but that has stealth and crafting. If you did like it, you can't go wrong with Far Cry 4, which is FC3 but better.

OK, in all seriousness, I've got a legitimate question.

I'm level 24 and beat the single player story today. I've finished bounties and a few strikes, and played a few multiplayer matches. However, am I missing something or is this all that's left?

Neither of these things are particularity interesting or worth my playing time if this is it. Only a handful of different enemies to fight, other than the bosses. Just seems rather repetitive, whether bounties or strikes.

Am I missing something else?

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

Yeah, that's pretty much it. You can do things at higher difficulties, but generally it's bounties, strikes and MP to grind rep to get you to around 28 to do the first raid. If you have the first DLC then the first raid becomes obsolete from a gear perspective, although it is good content.

No, I don't think so, but SO didn't have near the amount of hype as The Order, and it also doesn't have a single controversial aspect that people can latch on to, such as length/unskippable cutscenes/QTEs, etc. (It's also a great game, IMHO smile ). A fairly analogous example on the xbone side would be Ryse, although even then I don't recall it being specifically targeted by Playstation fans.

The sad thing is that I don't think anyone would be complaining about the length if it wasn't for that initial report on the YouTube playthrough. Since when did gamers become such sheeple?

I don't know - a $60 game with no MP and no bonus modes that's just 7-9 hours in length with lots of unskippable cutscenes? I think people would be talking about it even without that speed run video. Especially a game that's been in development as long as The Order.
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] The Order: 1886 on: February 19, 2015, 04:44:14 PM
Personally, I do care about length as well as a reason to play the game early in its release. With no multiplayer or anything, plus a backlog that goes on for miles, it's going to be hard to convince me to spend $60 on this game right now. Of course, it's likely I would trade away the game pretty quickly, making the cost not a big deal in the log run, but there still seems to be very little reason to play this game at release, even if it might be GOTY material.
