I liked JJ better than the others...

I felt the same way. 

But instead of trying out Iron Fist this weekend I just started on Into the Badlands, which seems to be a decent replacement so far.  Sort of a post-apocalyptic Kung Fu or something, I guess.


My wife just finished into the badlands and Iron Fist.  Her opinion is that either the martial arts or story needed to be good in either show. And with Badlands she got her martial arts fix (hates the acting) but it has surprisingly good fight choreography.  She was not happy with Iron Fist and had the same opinion as I have.  My wife is a fighter too so she is also nitpicky about Movie/TV martial arts

So is single player worthwhile, for those of you still playing the game? I'm going to purchase a GTX 1080ti, and they are offering the choice of For Honor or Ghost Recon as a free game.

It's a 5-6 hour single player campaign, being s multiplayer focused fighting game.  Titanfall 2 campaign is a good comparison.  Probably not as good as TF2's single player, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Iron Fist

First two episodes are not very good.  Hopefully the rest of the episodes pick up the pace soon.

Can you be more specific?  Boring?  Badly written?  Badly acted?  Bad direction?  Or just all around in general bad lol?


My tastes don't align with a lot of people when it comes to the Netflix Marvel shows.  IMO the best shows from great to not as such is Daredevil season 2, Daredevil season 1, Luke Cage, and then Jessica Jones. 

There are plenty of issues that I won't mention due to spoilers, and other issues I really don't want to get into but yes for the most part I was bored. 

I have specific pet peeves when I watch TV show/movie regarding military, gun play, and martial arts.  Daredevil for has fantastic fight direction because for the most part, Matt (stunt double) has his mask on when he fights.  Poor Danny Rand and Coleen Wing, at least so far, have to do most of their stunts and its cringeworthy to me.  I can always look past the fighting aspect of this show if the writing and direction were compelling.

I've watched the first 6 episodes of Iron Fist, but still optimistic that it just might get better. 
The Defenders have the show runner from Daredevil Season 2 so I have high hopes that will deliver.

Quote from: Harkonis on March 16, 2017, 11:22:10 PM

I had a fair amount of fun with mp once I started figuring out tactics and having a stronger gun.  However the framerate felt very low and inconsistent and there was fairly frequent hitching.  On top of that positional audio doesn't just not work, it works very well in opposition of how it should.  End result is that you constantly hear things where nothing is and hear nothing where something is.  Some reports are that if you turn off surround and force stereo, then put your headset on backwards it works 'ok'.  lovely.

i still see the same potential for fun I had in ME3:MP, but it might be a rocky start.


Yeah I had fun, leveled up 3 different kits to at least lvl 5 and finally got some decent gear.  It's just the janky controls and frame rate that makes it a deal breaker to me, at least for now. 

Not sure why the multiplayer is poorly optimized when the single player portion is a whole lot smoother experience.

I canceled my pre order of Mass Effect. Severely disappointed and this is one of the very few times I have canceled a pre order.

Now I mostly played the Mass Effect series for the multiplayer, and only played the campaign when I had no friends online or when I was bored.  I did try the campaign for three hours with Adromeda, and nothing was there to sway me to buy it for the campaign alone.  I had fun with the multiplayer but again the technical issues was frustrating. 

Take my opinion with a grain of salt because looking at the videos on YouTube and twitch, PC and PS4 pro versions, the game looks so much smoother and playable.  On XB1, it's pretty ugly and choppy. 

P.S. I would have gone through and bought the game if it came out during a video game release drought, but at this time I have plenty to play.  Who knows, I may buy this game on Project Scorpio the game gets patched to take advantage of the new hardware

Depending on how the rest of my 10 hour trial goes, I may cancel my pre order.  Played multiplayer co-op for about 1-2 hours. It was kinda fun but the low frame rate and janky controls has me disappointed. 

Going to try the single player campaign and some more multiplayer when I get back home from work.

I've been horribly under the weather these past two weeks so I haven't got that much time with Ghost Recon as I should have, but still loving it. Also I am still going strong with For Honor. 
I did pre order Mass Effect and will play early by using those 10 hours for just Multiplayer/coop.  Single player portion I can work on when it releases for realsZ.

Enjoying the game, been sick all day so I've been playing solo.  I increased the difficulty of the game by one, and turned off some HUD elements to suit my tastes.  Sniping and using sync shot makes the game pretty easy (at least in the beginning) so all I've been using is an LMG and an Assault Rifle with an M203.

Spoiler for Hiden:
This was shown right before Logan... and I mean right before Logan,meaning after the normal previews. In fact, I was shocked and confused when it came on. Almost looked like it was gonna be part of the movie..

Spoiler for Hiden:
In hindsight, I'm pretty sure the reason why the dead pool teaser was shown before the Logan movie is because it would have felt awkward and inappropriate if the teaser was shown after Logan ended.

Anyone know if this is a "Windows 10-only" title? One listing suggested that, another said PC version is "for Steam and Windows 10," as if those are different things (and it doesn't mean Steam machines)? Color me confused.  confused


Windows 10 most likely means Microsoft store version

How is the font size on the Xbox? I'm worried that this might be like Wasteland 2 on the PS4 which required me to sit 3 feet away from the TV in order to read the text...

I too would like to know about the font.  Bought Wastleland on Xbox and could barely read it, and I have 20/15 vision lol.  My TV is huge but far away around 10 feet or so.
21  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [TV] Doctor Who on: February 28, 2017, 07:48:44 PM

Quote from: OrangeKyle on February 28, 2017, 05:35:23 PM

Well, okay, I guess I should be more specific. There wasn't already a current Doctor Who thread. The most recent one of those hasn't had a reply in more than two years, which means nobody discussed Series 9/Season 35. IMO it was the best one since Series 5/Season 31.

If Tilda Swinton is cast, I will give her a chance, but my expectations will be low. Maybe she'll grow on me after a while. It took me a little while to warm up to Jon Pertwee when I first started watching Classic Who, but he eventually won me over.

All of the current doctors that were cast I've had to warm up to.  With the exception of Eccleston, who, IMO, had tremendous charisma that got me back into watching the franchise.

Watching some high level play in YouTube is a thing of beauty IMO.  Loving this game, but got frustrated with a hero class earlier this morning.  Some Heroes have a considerable higher skill ceiling than others, but fortunately the game is so fun that I enjoy drilling and practicing custom matches I've made for myself.

Just finished watching.  This is the type of game the more you know, the more fun it is. 
Dynasty Warriors is like playing connect four, and playing For Honor is more like Chess slywink

The two tutorials really don't give you all the ins and outs of all the mechanics and had to do some homework to figure a bunch of stuff out. Luckily the main Ubisoft For Honor website gives you some good info and videos

Here's what can happen when you understand the revenge system and your opponents don't.  Surprise Mother

sadly these are the same type of people that will then either say the game sucks or that the character I was playing was OP simply because they don't know what they are doing frown

Nice video smile

This game is incredibly more deep than I thought, only had a good understanding of how the mechanics work by going through both basic and advanced training tutorial and by reading the wiki on the heroes.  Game reminds me of bushido blade.  No one hit kills (other than environment) but that you have to really pay attention on the stances and potential fake outs/feints to get an opening. 

On Harkonis vid, it gets ridiculous when you spec your gear on filling your revenge meter by defending.  But kudos on your awareness and expert play there
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: For Honor [PC/XB1/PS4] - Ubisoft melee battlefield game on: February 10, 2017, 05:16:22 AM
Spent two hours with it tonight and I love it.  Probably won't play much more of the open beta, I already know I'm going to play the hell out of this when it launches. 

Peer to peer connection kinda sucks, not much of a problem during my playtime since only two of the matches I played all night was a laggy mess. 

Curious about the campaign, have a feeling the single player portion of For Honor is probably more like Titanfall 1 than the greatness of Titanfall 2.
