It's important to keep in mind that the Xbox One has sold 76% more units than the Xbox 360 did in its first 6 months, which means it's sold about 5.6m units compared to the 360's 3.2m in the same time span

They've not sold 5.6 million to customers.  They've shipped that many to retailers.  MS really did a great job confusing  people with that 5M number they put out there when Sony announced selling 7M to actual customers.

There has been this perception due to its performance compared to the XB1 that it is some kind of miracle machine that gives developers unlimited ability to let their imaginations run wild.

Nobody thinks this (that is rational, anyway).  It just performs better than the XBO.  An open world game like Watch Dogs is going to tax the system.  Infamous benefits because it was only made for one platform.  AC4 is multiplatform and somewhat open world, but the scope is not as large when you're in a city.  From what I have seen of Watch Dogs, it's got traffic, lots of different buildings, etc. and is multiplatform (including last-gen) so it's just not going to run as well as Infamous.

Hopefully you guys realize you can hook up a PC to a TV, but just in case, I'll point it out.

I guess the real question is what kind of settings ccan you run these games at on PC while building a PC that costs $400?  Sure, dual graphics cards are going to get you insane graphics (and you can build a 4K system right now), but it isn't cheap.  I think before, what you got in a console was better than even the high end PCs, but now the high end ones beat it.
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: May 14, 2014, 01:06:27 AM
Yeah, that's the thing.  They've had two shots at it now and it just hasn't gone well.  I think I would be fine if they figured out a way to maybe build it into the console footprint itself and limit it to voice recognition.  It's sad that the PS4 recognizes me instantly with their PS4 little camera and I have to often tell the XBO it didn't recognize me.  Voice recognition and the system itself has gotten better for sure with the patches (when I first brought it home, the system was riddled with issues where I basically had to hard reboot it every day).  With the patches, it's been a few weeks since I've had to hard reboot the thing and, in general, voice recognition seems to work better, though I wish it would lower the volume of the system when I say "XBox" so that it could then hear the rest of what I am saying.  Trying to talk when people are a room over talking loudly or even during commercials rarely works.

But, my worry here is now that they will sell this Kinectless SKU, that they won't continue to work on the voice, which I do think the best thing about Kinect is (and something you don't actually need the camera for).

Just want to say I beat DS2 yesterday.  Such a great game.  I've now beaten Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2, thus demonstrating I am a very patient person. slywink

Seriously, though, I love these games.  I've not done a New Game+ in a game before, but just started one this morning for this one.  Right off the bat, there were new enemies not int he first run-through, so excited to play some more.

It's not a problem, just a matter of opinion. We don't all have to like the same types of games.

I don't dismiss games I don't care for as not REAL games.  Never been into RTSes, for instance.  I'd never not consider them real games.

When I was young and had no money, companies were putting out bleeding edge games that pushed the limits of any PC I owned. I'd scrape and scrounge every dime to buy a system to keep up with the PC requirements.

Now that I'm old and have disposable income, companies are putting out 2D pixel art side scrollers.

I just can't get excited about (most) indie games. I didn't claw my way to the top of the console food chain and spend hundreds of dollars to play crap that can run on my phone.

When I see these long lists of upcoming games for PS4, I go, "Haha, yeah that's funny. Now show me the REAL games."

I'm sad for you as most Indie games I play (not saying this one with the screenshots above) are far more creative and REAL than most AAA games.  Not to mention they're better to play with a gamepad than on a phone.  Enjoy your view from the top.

-  Is there any way to compare the vendor's equipment to what I already have?

Nope and it's dumb.

-  Which is the better option for the early game:  Getting better equipment or leveling stats? 

I've usually just used equipment I find rather than buy it, so I vote for stats, but I could totally be wrong.

-  I joined a |Covenant of Blue"...what the hell does that do?

It is a covenant that allows you to summon blue sentinels when you get invaded.  You also should have gotten a blue seal which raises your HP.

Quote from: Zekester on April 23, 2014, 08:58:40 PM

been awhile since I played it, but I seem to remember that when you browse the races it tells you whether you have a qualifying car in your garage.

and isn't there a number related to your car? Like "500" "493" etc? You want to upgrade your car to the max allowed for that class race.

or am I thinking of GT6 instead?  retard

That's the thing.  It said I had a qualifying car, but technically I had 3 qualifying cars and it didn't tell me the Trans Am had issues until I went to actually try it and that is when it said I had to downgrade.
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: April 23, 2014, 06:26:24 PM
Definitely confused on how to tell if a car is qualified beforehand.  So that Trans Am that I moved up to C class....I went to run the next race in the event and it made me downgrade back to D for the race.  I wasn't seeing anywhere where I could have known that ahead of time and even more confusing is the race I ran was against a bunch of other Trans Ams, all which could smoke me on a straightaway.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: April 22, 2014, 02:10:06 PM
Loaded up Forza last night and this morning for the first time in forever.  Didn't realize they patched in the ability to quit out after a race instead of having to load up the next track and then quit out from there.  I think I'll actually play this a bit now.

Oh, one question.  Is there a way to see car class limits for a race?  I have done a couple in the Vintage series and my Trans Am gets smoked on straightaways.  I want to upgrade, but not sure if there is a ceiling on class.  I couldn't see one and I went and upgraded the Trans Am to C and it looks like it will be accepted, but then I wonder what the upper limit is.

Since you're renting a car, if you like pinball and old arcade games and get any free time, consider a trip to The Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham.  http://www.pinballwizardarcade.com/

PAX East also has a classic arcade, and it's pretty good (and free), but very light on the pinball games.

Yeah, I might have to check that out.

I've been to 7 PAX Primes and always had fun, but was always with a friend and so I've never had to try to entertain myself, but you're right that people are pretty friendly at these things.  It's why I convinced myself to just go.  I didn't think about public transportation.  I will look into that.  I hate driving in Boston, so might be better. 
67  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone going to PAX East? on: April 10, 2014, 01:15:13 PM
So, I was supposed to go to PAX East with a friend who lives in the northeast. I am flying from Denver and he was going to drive to Boston and pick me up and we were staying at a hotel in Woburn, MA that I used to stay at when I worked for a company HQed in Woburn that was only $99 a night. He just cancelled on me and so now I am trying to figure out what I want to do. I just rented a car for $174 for the duration of the trip (I am there from Thursday night through Sunday night) as cabbing it all those days is going to be more expensive, even with gas and parking.

So, now I need to decide if I want to go to this thing solo. I've been to PAX Prime the last seven years and am thinking it won't be much fun being alone out there. So, I was thinking if maybe some GTer was gong to PAX East, we could hang out.  Since my flight is in almost 6 hours, I should probably go pack if I'm going to go.  I guess I am going to go.  Not sure if anyone lives in the Boston area and wasn't planning on going....if so, I have a free 3-day pass if you want.  PM if interested in that.  If you're already going to PAX and wouldn't mind hanging out with me, you can reply here.

I think the odds are just as good that you'd find it in the next area.

2.  I've tried Enchanting with the Mystic twice now, paying between $25K and $50K to replace properties.  On both occasions, of the two replacements I was offered, one was fairly worthless (something like "increase gold pickup by 1 yard) and the other was the exact same one I just paid to replace.   Roll Eyes  Needless to say, I don't think I'll be using that feature very often.


Don't give up on this.  You're going to get bad results sometimes, but you'll also get good ones.  I've gotten some wonderful replacements for useless stats.

Also, Act V is not the main attraction of this expansion.  Get through it (I just did it on Normal to rush through) and unlock Adventure Mode.  This is where the expansion shines.

Grue remember monster scale up based on group size and gear levels, so you were probably outleveled based on these criteria.  You might have had a easier time if you tried Torment lvl 1 solo.  

Just a thought


Yeah, wasn't sure if Paragon levels kept scaling that up or not.  They were almost 100 Paragon levels over me.  I will probably just open a game and hope people join.

Yeah, ended up getting some that way last night.  I was level 65 and joined a group doing Torment 1 rifts and I think we did 4 of them and I got to level 70 and had a nice chunk of them.  They were in their mid-100s Paragon levels and I was barely damaging monsters and could die very easily.  Not sure if paragon levels come into play when the monsters are generated, but I was playing Torment 1 before Reaper came out and able to play just fine, but now it's too tough for me.  Will have to either find groups that are as patient or play on lower difficulties until I get geared up again.

You get them in Adventure Mode when you collect bounties.

I have an apple time capsule that has the build in airport express.  I set my Vita to not connect directly to the PS4 and it still is awful.  All of the computers here and cell phones and tablets all get 20 mb/s+.  PS4 is also wired with LAN cable.  If I leave the room that my PS4 is in, then during remote play the vita gets pixelated and drops the connection.  For me, the application is basically useless.  I can't use the Vita to remote from my bedroom, which is directly above the playstation.  Not 10 feet difference.

That's okay.  I get weird lag here and there even connected directly to the PS4 and right in the room.  Not sure if it's interference with the other wifi-enabled devices I have all around the PS4 or what.  Wii U does it to me as well, some times.
