The new Murky hero is made of ultra-fragile glass.  I guess you need to liberally use his egg to come back since he dies so easy.

I was at the PAX reveal of that character and it is intended to be fragile, but since he spawns so easily, you just keep coming back.  The way they phrased it was that if you can fight a round with Murky and not take damage, that is a victory.  Otherwise, he will just keep chipping away at you.

According to the source themselves, it is pronounced "You-be-soft" because it comes from "ubiquitous software".

I am glad their DRM is no longer ubiquitous.

Have been looking forward to it.  All the footage I have seen of it looks wonderful.  Even bought a 1 TB hard drive to kick off my digital collection with this title (well, technically I have some other digital titles like Mario 3D World and Wind Waker, but I ran out of room and so this was my move to be able to have room for all digital titles from here on out).

Has anyone tried using a USB flash drive with the Wii U for extra storage?  I know Nintendo doesn't recommend it, but I would just be using it to store game downloads.  Since the "8 GB" model is actually 3 GB, I don't have enough room to download the free game that comes with Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo actually has a few hard drives they officially recommend.  I just bought a 1TB drive from Amazon that is not externally powered, but you have to buy a USB Y cable so that you can pull power from one and connect with the other.  I'll be getting it Thursday, but I saw others use this particular drive with the Y cable and they say it works.  I've gone completely digital with games and Wii U was the last console that I didn't.  I went to go buy Donkey Kong and didn't have the space, so bought the disc, but since Mario Kart is coming out, I decided to go ahead and buy the drive.

Alright, got the drive and Y cable in and it works great.  It obviously uses up both USB ports in the back, so if they ever actually came out with something that needed one of those ports in the back, I'd either be SOL or maybe maybe would have to get another  USB splitter or something.  I copied over Mario 3D World and loaded it up and it worked like a charm.  Here's what I ordered:

Y Cable
1TB Hard Drive

Sadly, the Wii U probably won't live long enough for me to ever come close to filling this drive.

Edit to be sure to make it clear that I went with this particular drive solution because it doesn't require external power.  I have so many things plugged into the outlets by where my TV is that I didn't want one that needed me to plug in an AC adapter.

What does the PS4 controller speaker do in this game?  Ben Kuchera mentioned it was a great part of the experience, but I'm on the PC version so I don't know what I'm missing.

Also, don't overlook that you can use the bumper buttons to do a neat flourish or hum along to the music.

I turned it on last night (it is off by default) and it just has the voice of the sword come through the controller to match the flashing of the light bar.  I think I'll leave it on the controller as I like the effect.

Yeah, one of the reasons I never play MOBAs is the store.  It seems like there's a set of items for a character that everyone buys in things like DOTA and LoL, which makes the mechanic boil down to buying those items, which makes you wonder why they even have it in the first place.  I also like the idea of shared xp.  Sure I think this game will not be as complex (maybe MOBAs for Babies), but since this is a genre I wish I played but don't have the time to invest, I'd like something a little easier for me to be able to get that experience.

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.

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.
94  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).

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.

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.
105  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.
106  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. 
115  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.
