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.

I would hate to try and navigate the xbone without kinect. There are things I thought you can't even get to with the controller (probably not, but it seemed that 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.

I'm pre-ordered and will at least be playing the first month.  (blame teggy)


For the record I specifically told him not to buy the game. I even said that the reason I was buying the game was for the platforming, which should have scared him away for sure.

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!"

-Autistic Angel

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.

99  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: April 21, 2014, 09:07:25 PM
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.

104  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: April 09, 2014, 03:11:08 PM
If you are interested in moving ahead faster, just do the quests at your level. I recently ran 2 characters through the beginning Ebonheart quests:

First character did the quest to defend Davon's Watch, then went to Bleakrock and did every single quest on Bleakrock (got the achievement for finding all the hidden villagers), then did all the quests in Bal Foyen, then went back to Davon's Watch. She was level 7.

Second character went straight to Bleakrock, did one main quest and one sidequest and got the skyshards, did all of the quests in Bal Foyen to catch up a level, then went back to Davon's Watch. She was level 6.

So all of those extra quests took up a lot of extra time and probably got me less than a level. Of course, even if you don't do all the quests, you'll want to do the public dungeons to get the skyshards and also get the skyshards in the world. There are also quests the give skill points. You might want to mark those down if you have a character doing everything or you can use a guide.

Personally, I would prefer a game that took a month to get to max level. For one, it's stupid that you can craft weapons or armor for your friends and they outlevel it in an hour or less.

I tried the Mac client this morning on my 2011 MacBook Pro and it performs well and looks really good on medium settings. Blows the GW2 Mac client out of the water for sure.

Mine was Thor for a while with her "Odyn Son" hammer that proced lightning, but now she just has a sword. That's quick leveling for you.

Finished up this afternoon.  Completed all the missions except for one, which I think was a bug (was supposed to find 5 poems in a dudes house, and one of them wasn't where it was supposed to be according to the FAQ I read).

I had an issue with that one too, the problem was
Spoiler for Hiden:
they stupidly put one under a health pack, not realizing that anyone with full health packs could not pick the health pack on top of it. So you had to hurt yourself, then use a health pack, then pick up the health pack so you could get the poem.

I haven't checked the release notes to see if they fixed that.
114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: March 25, 2014, 03:19:18 PM
Since I had reset the story with my Demon Hunter a few days ago I couldn't jump into Act V. I am reserving my Wizard for a possible Act V playthrough with the group I took her through Inferno with, so that changed my plan and now I am started fresh at Act I with a Crusader Tongue

At least I'll get all those boss achievements that were replaced when they retired all the ones based on the old difficulty levels.

Quote from: USMC Kato on March 19, 2014, 03:32:01 AM


Wouldn't destructive environments make pilots cannon fodder?

Yes, he actually points out that destructive buildings alone would probably not work in the game, but points out that there could be dynamic events on the maps like in Battlefield/CoD/Gears. The fact that there are giant monsters on a map and they are just window dressing is one particular wasted opportunity.

(BTW he plays on PC, which is why some of the Xbone features don't apply)

I think the point is not to nitpick any one of these items, but that there is a list of items this long, many of which we've come to expect as standard in a MP shooter.

I mean, sure you can play for 20 hours, but you can play Loadout for 20 hours too for free. Like I said, I mostly curious about when they actually planned for this game to come out, and what was the feature set would have been in the complete game. We know that private matches are coming, but was there anything else?
118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 19, 2014, 12:34:13 AM
Let me preface by saying I really like Titanfall and will be playing it a lot more, but I was watching this review by Angry Joe and he brought up a good point about the game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZhUHOqaC5_A#t=1190

I fast forwarded to the relevant portion, since a lot of the review is just complaining that the SP portion was crappy, which is true, but didn't need 15 minutes to explain.

He points out the following shortcomings in the game:
No private matches
No private lobbies (and no kick from lobby option)
No clan support
No rematches
No emblems
No pilot customization
No weapon customization
No Titan customization
Only 10 pilot weapons
Only 5 game modes
No destruction or interactive/changing environments

Was what we got worth $60? Would we have had a problem paying $60 for this game if not for Respawn's credentials? Would reviews have been as high?

What I am most curious about given these facts is what was the game's path to release? Is it possible this game was delivered possibly a year prior to Respawn's plans due to requests from Microsoft?

Eh, not everyone has to like every game and genre. MOBAs are like a foreign language to me and I can't play RTS to save my life.

MOBAs are more like competitive versions of Action RPGs like Marvel Heroes or Diablo than an RTS.  Just all the loot/leveling is sort of confined to the match.

I meant RTS as a second example in that sentence - MOBA and RTS are two genres I don't really get/am not good at, but I don't feel like I need to try and get into them just because other people like them.
