I had gotten in my head somehow that it was coming out this Tuesday. Dang, another week.  icon_frown

You're getting it on Tuesday? Lucky bastard. Europeans have to wait until Friday next week, apparently.

I saw a YouTube video a while ago where some guy tried his best to land a heavy ship on a planet with extremely high gravity. He just couldn't do it. His thrusters simply couldn't compensate for the gravitational pull, and he smashed into the planet's surface every time at very high speed.

Got my PS4 Pro today, and the setup process was as painless as it could possibly get. Took no time at all to replace the HD with a bigger one, format it, and restore my backup from the old system (which I had trimmed dramatically in size, or this would have taken a lot longer).

The Last Guardian feels much better to play now, with something closer to a stable frame rate, even if it still doesn't quite feel smooth. Its performance is pretty terrible on the base PS4, fluctuating back and forth between 20 and 30 fps. On PS4 Pro it stays on 30 most of the time.

And now to download almost 1.5 terabytes of games...

Having used a PS Pro, the difference is actually pretty striking in some games. Equivalent to about a $200-$300 graphical upgrade on the PC. It's not just the graphics though, but that weird low FPS, or latency you get used to with console games pushing the hardware spec goes away, so if handled well a game tends to be way smoother even if there isn't as much of a graphical bump.

The same will probably be true of the XB update

There also appears to be a so-called Boost Mode in the upcoming 4.5 system update, which allows users (at their own risk) to tell games to use the full power of the PS4 Pro even if they've never been patched to support it. I've seen some YouTube comparisons that show a dramatic difference in frame rates, for example in Bloodborne and The Witcher 3. If nothing else, it'll make the frame rate more stable. From what I've heard there's only one game that's been discovered to crash with this feature turned on again, and I believe that game is Soma.

I caved in and ordered a PS4 Pro yesterday, figuring that I'm in no hurry to get the Switch. Even with a 1080p screen I'll still get good use of it with games like The Last Guardian and the upcoming Horizon Zero Dawn, and I'm sure coming games will use its features more and more effectively.

I can't see myself using an external HD for the PS4 though. Loading times are bad enough on consoles already.

I'm almost done with the first building you enter, and despite this just being one relatively small mansion, it'll still take you hours to explore it. They get a lot of mileage out of relatively little.

The prologue building or the mansion after that?

The mansion. I somehow thought they were the same building, but apparently not.

I've been playing this a bit too, and it's indeed very enjoyable. It feels like a throwback to Resident Evil 1, but without the bad parts of that game (of which there are many). This isn't a game about zombies. In fact, the number of enemies you'll meet is limited, though there are some surprises here and there. As for combat, most of the encounters I've seen so far have had some kind of trick to them to let you avoid regular fighting, but there are definitely some sections that will force you to shoot enemies and feel like you can't waste even a single bullet. Combat isn't really a significant part of the game so far, with the focus instead placed firmly in the stealth and puzzle camps. Combat won't solve most of your problems here, even if you've got a ton of ammo (you don't).

While I don't necessarily agree, I can see why you'd say that. Luckily for you, Uncharted 3 and 4 center quite a bit around his character flaws and what they do both to him and to the people around him. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised by where the whole thing ends up.

After a slow first half of the year in 2016, I made serious effort to work on my backlog and managed to finish 31 games overall. In addition to regular games, some of them were in the form of major DLC content (ie. expansions), and some were in the form of shorter experiences such as VR.

Previous years:

Games Finished in 2017

PC
  • Dishonored 2 - As Corvo. Non-lethal and never spotted.
  • SUPERHOT

Oculus Rift

PS4
  • Firewatch
  • King's Quest - Chapters 3, 4 and 5
  • The Last Guardian

3DS
  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice DLC case

I would recommend Ace Attorney Trilogy despite writing that you don't want to play visual novels. These games are different enough from the formula, and so damn good in the first place, that you really should play them anyway. They're the primary reason why I have a 3DS to begin with.

Money has already been withdrawn from my account for Oculus Touch, so I'm getting that and its included games very soon. I'm particularly looking forward to giving the updated version of The Climb a go, with its new "mountain" and all.

I'm probably going to get The Last Guardian at some point, but I'm still busy with Pokemon Moon, Watch Dogs 2, Owlboy, and some other games.
13  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Pokemon Sun/Moon on: December 01, 2016, 09:44:26 PM
I'm also playing the game, but I'm doing wrap-up in Omega Ruby at the same time, so progress is slow. I've got more than 450 different pokemon in OR right now, and every single legendary that existed before Sun and Moon was released, as well as all Mythicals except one. I've got all pokemon that can be captured in OR except one, which I'm still trying to get (damn you Mirage Spots).

As for Sun and Moon, I picked Moon as my game. On the second island (which is much better than the first) and enjoying it. My pokedex is up to a little above 60, and I'm planning to catch'em all. With the upcoming January update to the Pokemon Bank that keeps track of your National Dex, I'm going to make a serious attempt to catch every single pokemon ever released, and trade those that are impossible to catch in the games I own in the series (White 2, Omega Ruby, Moon).

The quality of life improvements in Sun and Moon are a godsend. It's nice to no longer have to keep a spreadsheet with strengths and weaknesses handy at all times, and the complete removal of HMs means I no longer have to carry around two almost completely useless pokemon just to be able to traverse the map.

It's hard to believe I'm saying this, but unless Watch Dogs 2 turns out to have poor PC performance, that's what I'm getting. For once Ubisoft has apparently managed to tear themselves away from making yet another Ubisoft: The Game, and combined with the good reviews they've managed to catch my interest.

The American people elected the lesser of the two evils. It is as simple as that. The overly dramatic teeth gnashing, the "America is DOOMED" rhetoric, have no place in calm discourse. The Republicans "survived" 8 years of Obama. The Democrats will "survive" 4 or 8 years of Trump. There is no apocalypse. Starbucks is still handing out coffee, Comcast still has sh!tty customer service, and your dog is still happy to see you when you walk in the door. The founding fathers did an admirable job creating a government of checks and balances. Have faith in their vision.

How is that faith of yours going to work when Trump, as he has clearly stated during his campaign, not only stops all progress America has made towards stopping global warming, but actually reverses the progress as he has promised? We're already past the point of no return. Any delay to the process caused by Trump will have effects that will reverberate across generations.

How is that faith of yours going to help the minorities in your nation? I'm talking about the homosexuals, the lesbians, the bisexuals, the transsexuals, the non-white population, women, and so on. One look at your post reveals that you're privileged. That makes you special, but it also makes you an asshole if you abuse that privilege by ignoring those who don't have it. Trump has clearly demonstrated animosity and even outright hatred of most of these groups. They are going to have to face vile treatment over the coming years. How is the faith of the privileged going to help there? Is a lesbian couple that wants to get married going to appreciate your faith in the system when Trump makes it illegal for them to do so? Will your faith in the system comfort the thousands upon thousands of people who will be deported for no reason except their religion or skin color? Will your faith in the system help the women who will struggle to legally get an abortion thanks to Mike Pence and his crusades? I'm not extrapolating any of this. It's all been clearly stated by the candidates that this is what they want to happen.

No, I'm concerned about people, not about the institutions. The system can go fuck itself as long as the people suffer. I appreciate that your priorities are different, but I don't have to respect it.

I'm sorry. That's all I can muster for you guys. I'm sorry.

I've been an emotional wreck since yesterday because of this whole thing, and it's probably going to stick with me for a while. I realized while it was at its worst that I'm just going to have to hand in my empathy at the door from now on, at least when it comes to the US. I just can't handle thinking about the shit minority groups in your country is going to go through in the coming four years without losing my sanity in the process. As far as I'm concerned, you're on your own. My political views are built around community and social welfare, the idea that society grows the strongest when people care for each other and help each other out instead of simply grabbing whatever one can and defending it through all available means. What happened here is so alien to me that I can't really comprehend it. I'm checking out, for my own mental health if nothing else.

This is your problem now. I'm thinking of myself first and foremost from now on. There's only so much pain I can take.

Owlboy seems to be right up my alley, so I'll probably be getting that for PC.

Fun fact: I was first introduced to this game a bunch of years ago (around 2008 I believe) when I was part of the jury for Norwegian Game Awards and Owlboy was one of the candidates. It was not my favorite that year, but the one the jury voted for was never finished or brought to market. Owlboy returned to win the same competition in 2010. Goes to show me, I guess. Tongue

Yeah, but A) This isn't a AAA game, B) they've already had a year + to start on it.

That's not how it works. An RPG of this scale is equivalent or larger to typical AAA games in terms of development scope, and they have done nothing but pre-production on the game so far. They haven't started developing it, but have only laid plans and created story and concepts. The gameplay trailer isn't actual gameplay, but prerendered footage that probably isn't even running in the game engine they're using.

inXile has capacity to work on two projects at a time. Their developers are now beeing freed up from Torment, which means they can soon move over to Wasteland 3. They don't operate in a way that locks an entire team to a single project for the entirety of its lifespan. Instead they split the team into pre-production, production, and post-production. The pre-production team includes writers, artists, and so on. Their work is typically finished well before the end of a project's lifespan, which moves that part of the team over to pre-production on another project. Most of their developers join a project only when it reaches its production stage, and a majority of them leave for the next project during the post-production (ie. patching) stage. This gives inXile maximum flexibility with their resources and means that nobody is stuck twiddling their thumbs while waiting for other parts of the team to finish up.

Wasteland 3, as far as I'm aware, hasn't even entered the production stage yet. In practical terms, they've barely started work on it.

I'm honestly starting to think that Gellar's drivatar may be bugged. I've previously commented on how it tends to zip ahead of everyone else regardless of car, but in this latest championship (Ferrari vs Lamborghini) it has grown ridiculous to the point of frustration. I could drive perfectly and I still wouldn't be able to even see his car, let alone have a chance of passing it. The only way I can tell where it is is by looking at the GPS. I race to second place within the first half of the first lap, and yet Gellar's drivatar is nowhere to be seen, having pulled far, far ahead of the rest of the drivatars in half a lap. It's impossible to beat this no matter how well I drive, which is why I'm wondering if it's simply a bug. My car is upgraded to its limits, but I stand no chance.

It's kind of making this particular championship feel pointless. Why try to excel if there's no way for me to win anyway?

What drivatar difficulty are you playing? I haven't seen anything like that. I've had a runaway leader I just couldn't catch but the fault was squarely with me.

I do have one race setup that I totally annihilate the competition. It's basically a collection of misfit cars and I have a D500 Meyers Manx setup for stupid speed and no handling and it is ridiculous (I thik I went for an engine conversion but left factory tires on it). I'm in second place when I hit the starting line. I have to drift and smash into barriers to turn without coming to a complete stop. It's pretty funny.

In general, speed is way prioritized over handling. There are races I cannot even come close to winning if I prioritize handling because the AI cars just walk away from me on the straights. I wish the game did a better job of balancing based on all of the characteristics vs just overall car score.

That doesn't seem to be the problem in this case either. I can eventually match your drivatar's speed as far as I can tell (with similar lap times), but the head start he gets and the fact that while I can match him I can't beat him, means that I can't get any closer to him. In other words, it looks like our speeds are equal as soon as I get to second place.

I have to say, my biggest criticism of this game is that the leveling system sucks major ass. They've managed to take one of the most satisfying moments in gaming (gaining a new level) and turn it into one of the most frustrating, depressing things ever. I never look forward to gaining a new level anymore, as it's almost always nothing but disappointment and lost chances. I never want to see a spin-the-wheel system for levels again in my life.

Anyone else having the problem where Forza Hub simply will not update in Windows? It shows the correct Gamerscore and a number of Ultimate Passes (which I don't know is correct), but nothing else. Everything is stuck at zero, and it has been like that since Day 1.

I just downloaded it and it looks like it is reflecting the stats as of release day maybe. It shows me at level 78 and just over 1000 miles driven. I am level 170-something with well over 29 miles at this point, so I am guessing there must be some delay to updates.

Thanks. I guess they've taken down the servers temporarily to keep traffic to a minimum in the launch window, though that kind of diminishes the value of the cloud computing that Forza became one of the poster children of.

You've been zipping ahead in every single race you've been in recently, making the fight for the first place a duel between the two of us every time, with the other cars merely background noise. For some reason your drivatar is much faster than others I've come across, regardless of car.

I just got informed by the game that my drivatar has been in no less than 2,832 races since yesterday, earning me 36,200 CR. The day before that I earned 7,100 CR from a mere 34 races, so it appears that there's a serious case of diminishing returns here.

Your drivatar is in my team. Out of all the ones I've had head-to-head races against so far, he's the most annoying a wide margin, probably due to a similar car to the one coopasonic mentioned. Tongue If I make one mistake in a race with him involved, he zips past at the speed of light.

Then again, I shouldn't complain too much. I lucked out in a wheel spin and got a Horizon car worth 10 million bucks (well deserved after 10 whole levels getting nothing but money in the spins). I've upgraded it to S2, and it's insanely fast. I wonder if it's the same car my drivatar will be using. It's a Nissan GT-R Black Edition Horizon Edition (yeah, that's a mouthful). I actually feel like it could be competitive against the Koenigsegg after the upgrade.

Kind of weird that they'd give me a drivatar after only one or two races in the Apex beta. Almost lessens the concept since it'll have practically none of my driving habits. Guess I'll have to rectify that with Horizon 3.

My wheel doesn't have directional buttons or anything like that, but I guess I can use the mouse along with it to navigate menus. I seem to recall that's how I did it on earlier driving games where I've used this wheel. It's the Logitech MOMO Racing Force Feedback wheel.

I'm getting this on Windows 10 thanks to the glowing reviews and impressions. My system should be more than enough to handle it at the higher graphical settings.

Never played a Forza game before since it's always been Xbox exclusive and since there have always been good alternatives on PC, so I'm curious to jump into this one to see what all the hoopla is about. Thinking of using my steering wheel, but I don't know how well that will work with the maps and menus.

Can't say it's entirely surprising though. I was more surprised when they didn't originally announce Giacchino as the composer for this movie, since I saw him as Hollywood's most natural fit for it, seeing as how he's kind of the new John Williams in some ways.

I'm buying Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice with the power of a thousand suns! I've been looking forward to this game for ages.

Yeah, this game kept me going to the Platinum too. It's not that it's such a great game, it's just that for once we get an Assassin's Creed game that isn't obnoxious with its design flaws, which means it's actually possible to relax and enjoy it without feeling frustrated every few seconds. It also helped that they didn't try to shoehorn in multiplayer this time around.

Here's something that popped up in one of my feeds today.  A Cracked story about Daikatana.  It's from more than a year ago (he ties it into Destiny at the end), but I think it applies.

5 Things We Learned Making The Biggest Flop In Game History

The whole thing is interesting, but the part where he talks about the failure being why we're playing "Battlecall: Field Of Duty 17" is my fear with coming after Murray.  It's just going to get worse.

NOT that I'm in any way saying that John Romero was a dreamer who talked too much like Molyneux and Murray.  That guy was all hype and a bit of a douche, from what I can tell.

Daikatana was an attempt at a true AAA game. No Man's Sky is a niche game. The reasons people choose to dislike either are not comparable in the slightest, with the former being entirely John Romero's fault, and the latter being a mix between the audience and Sean Murray. The real difference is that Daikatana was a bad game no matter how you looked at it, while No Man's Sky is actually very enjoyable to its niche audience. It's just that the majority of people fall outside of this niche, and the marketing made them believe this wasn't going to be the case.
