The locations are reused from single player.

Do yourself a favor and watch Sword Art Online, season 1. It's a great anime that explores what happens if you trap people in a VR MMO, including PK and real death situations.

Make sure you skip Season 2, although I'm not sure if it's labeled as season 2, but you'll know when it switches. Season 1 is a masterpiece, season 2 is garbage.

Sadly, it seems like Season 2 is more like the books itself, but the reason why it's so terrible is they add back in a lot of fan service and effectively kill the personalities of many characters story-wise.

Sword Art Online II, aka season 3, a new anime based on stories after season 2 just started, it's including some fan service, but seems to have toned it down. Too early to tell if they're going to botch things as badly as season 2, but I'll let you guys know.

Eh, it's one more month, and moves it out of the SUPER GAME MONTH OCTOBER! Big games like RPGs can always use more time for polishing.

Yeah, I wasn't arguing that. Just saying how crazy people on the internet were saying it's a Z-95. Tongue
45  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Star Wars Episode VII Director Revealed on: July 21, 2014, 03:47:09 PM
People all over the internet have been saying that it's a Z-95, or based on it.

Apparently though, it's heavily based on some original Star Wars paintings of the X-Wing where it had the exact same sleeker shape.

Of course, I love that they took the time to put plenty of wear on it. The problem with the prequels wasn't the seemingly out of place tech, but rather that nothing looked like it was used.
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity : Original Sin on: July 21, 2014, 12:43:23 PM
Yep. Sometimes old school isn't all it's cracked up to be.

That said, the separate money pools is still a part of the game's co-op dynamic. Some duos, or later on 4 player modules, will have players slightly at odds, or disagreeing on things. All part of the fun of the game for those that want that dynamic.
47  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity : Original Sin on: July 21, 2014, 03:08:03 AM
Who wrote the GT review? Perhaps a contract writer didn't do his job properly?
48  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Passenger Jet Shot Down over Ukraine on: July 19, 2014, 07:53:36 AM
That's because they most likely did it.

Just before news hit of a passenger jet going down, the rebels were the first to post online about how they downed another Ukrainian fighter jet.

Wonder which idiotic side did it.

Taken 3: Taker

Liam Neeson runs around kidnapping the family members of a cartel to use as a bargaining chip to get his entire family out of a warzone.
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/?] Gigantic (TPS MOBA) on: July 17, 2014, 02:43:43 PM
I'd consider those late wave 2. From what I hear Dawngate fixes a ton of problems, but doesn't go as far as casual oriented mobas like HOTS. I have no idea where Strife lands in the spectrum.
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/?] Gigantic (TPS MOBA) on: July 17, 2014, 10:18:15 AM
Yeah, this and that new Gearbox game is like the second wave of MOBA clones.

Or is it now the third wave considering the first wave really only had LoL and DOTA 2 left? DOTA 2 being lumped in with with first wave despite coming out much later, it's very much a clone of the original.

Either way, these might do better than Smite, which seemed the one that was following more closely to the MOBA style just in third person.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 14, 2014, 12:31:18 PM
ATB: To be honest, this will probably be an MMO that doesn't play as much like an MMO, but if the thing about MMOs that you hated was the loot grind, you should probably still avoid this.

From all that I'm hearing, the best way to see if you'll be interested in the gameplay over the long run is if you liked Borderlands 2's combat. It's almost the same style of shooter where you have positioning and movement, but the damage is heavily level dependent, to the point where if you're 2+ levels above or below a target, they soak up a lot of fire.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/neXtBox/360/Ps3/Ps4] Wolfenstein:The New Order on: July 08, 2014, 11:26:36 PM
Be prepared to have most AAA games from now on require 64bit, there's probably a bunch of PC only titles that will make that switch as well in the coming years.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Civilization: Beyond Earth - Finally an Alpha Centauri successor? on: July 05, 2014, 09:36:44 AM
It is actually more than Civ 5 in space, although it does share a lot of the same core mechanics. But that's like saying Alpha Centauri was just another Civ 2 clone.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: July 02, 2014, 08:09:43 PM
So according to this:

Playstation 4 DS4 controllers now work in wireless mode with the PS3, including the PS button functionality. You can even turn on the PS3 with a DS4.
57  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [NBC] Community on: July 01, 2014, 05:52:01 AM
Yahoo has been languishing online, looks like they wanted to expand more into this territory of internet media, instead of trying to compete directly with Google.

It's a very good idea from them. These media corporations picking up properties that aren't as popular with the usual baby boomer audiences of regular TV, and instead puts them online to fit more with their intended audience.
58  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Pacific Rim 2 Catch All - Because it is coming in 2017! on: June 29, 2014, 07:04:42 PM
I think Guillermo is way overrated as an action or adventure movie director. Still a good director, but he's got all sorts of pacing issues that are apparent in Hellboy, which is why I wasn't surprised at all with Pacific Rim having the same issues.

And this is coming from someone who really likes slow movies.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/neXtBox/360/Ps3/Ps4] Wolfenstein:The New Order on: June 29, 2014, 04:54:00 PM
The id tech 5 engine is highly dependant on drivers and graphic card memory bandwidth, something that really hasn't been optimized for by both graphics card manufacturers on PC. Although that will change since the generic version of megatexture tech is going to become a standard feature of XB1, PS4, OpenGL, and DirectX.
60  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Star Wars Episode VII Director Revealed on: June 24, 2014, 06:28:57 AM
Eh, I've waited this long for a decent star wars sequel, I can wait some more if needed.
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Dead Island 2 on: June 23, 2014, 03:44:08 PM
Just saw that they will have 8 player co-op in this game.

I think the less serious tone (not to mention a coherent tone this time) will work out better for the co-op.

I always wondered who it was that bought all those cheesy shirts that only someone on vacation should dare wear.

Now I know.
One man's cheesy is another man's freedom of expression slywink

Or yet another man's attire on "Aloha Fridays" at the Catholic HS in Hawaii. Sooo much better than wearing a shirt and tie.

When I was in Vietnam with family, I deliberately bought one of the douchebaggiest hawaiian shirt they had on same super cheap there, and wore it for a day.

I got the nastiest of looks I have ever seen from tourists and locals alike. Tongue
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: June 18, 2014, 04:33:31 AM
Podcasts that I listen to say the same, it's an MMO shooter that doesn't want to mention the MMO part.

They have all the hallmarks, public events, hub areas, quest givers, etc.

That said, I doubt they'll have a monthly fee, instead I foresee them going the Guild Wars route where it's microtransactions and expansions packs, alongside the initial $60 buy in.
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Uncharted 4 on: June 12, 2014, 07:03:31 AM
Nah, probably the last Uncharted game about Nate and company, and the last one we'll see for a few more years. But, I'm pretty sure that by the end of this generation we'll see a new Uncharted with an entirely new cast, with nods to the old crew.

Now's a good time to send off the series, but if you give the story and gameplay some time to lay fallow, they can easily bring back a game in the same style.

That said, the Uncharted formula has been working great in the industry in terms of AAA cinematic games, and all of ND's projects. Uncharted will never really go away since that style has influenced the game industry as much as some of the better recognized classics.
65  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Edge of Tomorrow (aka All You Need is Kill) on: June 11, 2014, 06:43:04 AM
Spoiler for Hiden:
It's just a movie thing to make the ending happy.

You can justify it however you want really. The explanation I can think of is that the stored time energy in the Omega seeped into him, and also still exploded. The thing's mind must be partly out of time, thus killing it in any time kills it, despite it resetting time again. I doubt he really has any control over it from now on. That said, it's the movie industry, so it leaves something for a sequel. Heh, Edge of Yestday anyone? Tongue

Man, I can't imagine the workout those actors had to do to get those exoskeletons moving. Even if made from aluminum, those had to be heavy to walk around in.
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4/XB1/PC] Dead Island 2 on: June 10, 2014, 08:32:02 AM
Let's hope they keep this tone with the advertising this time. The first game's advertising was great as an ad, but horrifically bad at illustrating what the game was.

Anyway, I had a lot of fun doing co-op in Dead Island 1, should be fun to try again in 2.
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Uncharted 4 on: June 10, 2014, 08:30:42 AM
There will be a twist on it, of course, but naughty dog isn't above starting with a good trope, then deliberately twist it or even directly contradict it before the finale.
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Uncharted 4 on: June 10, 2014, 08:05:06 AM
Called it! Nate goes off to save Elena and company after someone kidnaps or threatens them.
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Little Big Planet 3 on: June 10, 2014, 08:03:22 AM
Yeah, keeping that backwards compatibility is great. However, it does mean they won't change the physics to be tighter, at least not with the basic game. I'm fine with the floatyness, but I do think they could add in alternate physics models using sackbots and the like.

I noticed a helluva lot more Z depth levels now too, and maybe even free movement between them in some instances.

Also with now much better PSN is now, hopefully that means less waiting.

Oh and HUUUGE levels! They did a pretty good job of cramming some decently large and complex levels into the LBP framework. Can you imagine what they can do now that they have ~6GB memory instead of 512MB, and using the same art style.

Heck, I already have a PS4 and 4 controllers knowing that LBP3 was coming, and while things haven't changed as much as I'd have liked, it's enough that it's all here. All my cousins are still asking to play LBP years after.
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC, PS4, XB1]Homefront: Revolution on: June 03, 2014, 09:07:28 PM
Um, what the F was that?

What was all that future tech flying around? It looked and sounded more like the Helghast had invaded America than the North Koreans.

That said, if they can make the game a bit more like the old Freedom Fighters game instead of the mess that was the original, I'm all for it.
71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Murdered: Soul Suspect on: June 03, 2014, 06:05:19 AM
Apparently, the game is pretty good, but not amazing.

According to joystiq, the investigation portions are great, and the story and mystery are also very good.

However, the combat encounters are a slog.

Anyone planning to pick this up?
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2014 on: June 03, 2014, 02:40:32 AM
Admittedly, kinect will see more use than VR goggles.

But good VR is probably more mind blowing.
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mortal Kombat X on: June 02, 2014, 06:52:27 PM
The moves are definitely slowed down.

However, they may be trying a slower system in general. Something more akin to playing say, Fight Night, from the early 360 days where attacks and movement had weight. Same for the animation linking/interactivity. They could be trying to have the animations in the MK universe while also being slower, to flow better between attacks, and between the two fighters.

All the background interactivity stuff is where they were headed in the last 3 MK style games (including the DC Universe games).

I just watched a trailer for Murdered: Soul Suspect.  That actually looks really interesting and now I’m eagerly awaiting reviews.  For some reason I had thought it was some kind of JRPG…

OMG, it really does sound like a JRPG name!

And yeah, I haven't seen anything about it, er, except that it was running a little slowly at a convention when showed. However, considering I thought really poorly of Wolfenstein and that turned out great, Murdered could be fun.

76  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / WTS: Wii U Deluxe + ZombiU & Monster Hunter - PENDING on: May 30, 2014, 05:03:44 PM


I'm selling my Wii U, mainly because I have so little time to play anymore that the few PC and PS4 games I play take up all that time, and I'm no longer living with people to play Wii U specific games with.

It's the deluxe set, black console and tablet controller as well as everything in the box. Asking for $200 shipped.

Included is 1 black nunchuck attachment, but no wii remote for it since my housemates had those, and you don't get a wii remote in the box.

Included games are ZombiU and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. For an extra $10 you can get Rayman Origins and Nintendo Land, otherwise I'll leave those games with my housemates.

Everything is in near new condition, all parts accounted for, no scratches on the WiiU controller screen.

By the way, there is nudity in the game. Like, full nudity and sex. Caught that from a podcast talk. So buyer beware if you're concerned about that.

I think Sony just got a major announced exclusive in their lineup.

Both consoles finally look to be ready to fight where it really matters, the games.

You know, watching the quick look, it just made me realize that a Person of Interest game would be excellent in the same engine as this. No open world, just make it mission to mission.
