Was going to play EDF, but I plugged in my old 360 yesterday and its dead. Won't even power up. So maybe finish up Dead Rising, BF4, and some Mechwarrior Online instead.

Game has a higher than average learning curve. Loving the game but it took me at least a full night of playing with Jarrodhk to get into the swing of things.
But once you get comfortable and start being able to contribute in your own way, the game is a blast
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: February 18, 2014, 08:37:58 PM
I have around 100 matches, and I believe Respawn has got the magic formula for making the tired FPS fun and engaging again. You are never out of the fight without a Titan and conversely, piloting a Titan does not make you safe or overpowered.  Movement is smooth and feels natural with the controller. Can't wait for release
165  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How long is your average gaming session? on: February 17, 2014, 10:02:37 PM
2-3 hours on a good day. If I wasn't training all the time I would game so much more smile

Still SUPER early, but after about two matches, I'm not seeing the appeal.

Titans just feel like an underpowered bullseye for everyone to concentrate fire on and the fact that you get them every two minutes kind of minimizes the 'specialness' of it.

How do you get a pilot who is rodeo damaging you off?

A cool tactic we employed today while playing with some GT folk was me riding rodeo on Harkonis's Titan while I had my Titan on follow. Really effective since no one can jump on Hark's Titan and the extra firepower from me when I have my rocket launcher out during Titan fights.

Lol Ron, just finished telling Jarrodhk the same exact thing. 7 out of 10 for me. Decent and enjoyable, but not great.

If I don't get into the Titanfall Beta, I will get some BF4 in and maybe finish up Assassins Creed: Black Flag

Voted for this on Steam's Greenlight. Looks great so far and I hope the kickstarter makes it's goal

I need to be able to use my fight stick.  Even if you accept that a steering wheel is arguably more complicated and needs a new one for the forcefeedback support or whatever, my fight stick has no need for the new analog stuff.

This

Killer instinct is a hell of a game, even with the gamepad. But I'm not playing it anymore until the Xbox gets fight stick support or they release a decent one.

I'm pretty sure I read that Respawn doesn't want to do a season pass.  That said, EA very well may have other ideas.

I'm sure DLC is on the pipeline, so maybe EA is going to call it "Premium" just like BF4
179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Annual Installments discussion on: February 04, 2014, 08:05:14 PM
The annual installments for the UFC games actually improved the gameplay/features of the series as it went on, even though the net code sucked.

Finally decided I'm excited enough about this game to cancel my preorder.  retard

What a strange world we love in. (I figure I'll play it long enough that the disc resale value will be negligible compared to the benefits of the digital version.)

Did the same thing. Will own digitally like I own Forza and Battlefield 4. Just traded in some old PS3 and 360 games and picked up a $120 in Microsoft gift cards. I'll be good to go come release day, and pretty sure I'll get a season pass if they offer it.

It's been a long time since I did the anime thing, but I've added it to the queue.  

Is there anything else in the last, say, 10 years that is "must see"?

Of the ones listed here, I would put Bebop and Escaflowne in that category.

If you're looking for series, these are the animes in the past 10 years that have impressed me the most:

  • The Last Exile; don't know how to describe, but it's for sure epic.
  • Samurai 7; a sort of steampunk retelling of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai
  • Samurai Champloo; Samurai revenge with hip hop thrown in (may already be on Netflix because it's available on netflix.ca)
  • Planetes;  blue collar sanitation workers on a space station -has to be seen to be believed
  • Darker Than Black; somewhat dark urban fantasy (may also be on Netflix)
  • Technolyze; somewhat dark cyberpunk
  • Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex 2; IMO better than the 1st series
  • Gungrave; urban fantasy/horror

The anime series "Rideback" is on netflix, and is really good. Give it a shot, I'm glad I did.

Pendulum wars is just a human conflict though.

Yes! 

I hope they go with the Pendulum Wars route. Fighting humans can be just as interesting and diverse, even more so than the usual enemies of the series.

I believe he's referring to the limit on calling them in.  There seemed to be a lockout in one of the gp vids that you can only have one called in every so often so you might be waiting for a 'drop window' to open to get yours.

As soon as a match starts, everyone's timer begins on getting their Titan to fall. If you are doing better, you get "bumped" in the queue and your mech comes down faster.

After every death (or destruction of your mech) your next mech is put in queue to be made - and performance will determine if you get bumped again.

I expect Hark and Kato to be willing to toss mechs into the fray 'cuz they have their own dedicated drop ship.

It's going to be like the old days in COD,... Waiting for our own turn to call in a chopper.

Gears of War books by Karen Traviss.

This. Can't believe how good the book series really is. Fantastic all around. Gave it a shot when ATB recommended it, hope the rest of you give it a go.
