Ps4 for me, despite being an Xbox guy for the last 12 years. Killzone looks great, as does Infamous. My wife actually just bought me a PS3, so I have a backlog to work on while I wait. I'm sure i'll buy the Xbox eventually.

The new Level 7 (Omega Protocol?) looks neat, about as close to XCom as I've seen. I'm awaiting reviews before i shell out he cash
43  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Incursion Kickstarter on: August 11, 2013, 04:07:01 AM
Really? We loved it, and it still hits the table with regularity. Granted I was late to the party (i picked up a used copy), but it was everything I loved about Space Hulk, just a little better and more affordable.

I'd be chipping in, but Level 7 has sort of piqued my interest right now
44  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Incursion Kickstarter on: August 02, 2013, 11:32:26 PM
Grindhouse Games has relaunched their game Incursion. It's a bit pricey, but it is one of the best tactical miniatures games I've played. It's an established game by an established company that they are improving via Kickstarter funds.

Anyway, i thought you guys might be interested.

It's half a game right now. Worth the money, but it grows stale rather quick

Creative people tend to be volatile, it's oftentimes simply in their nature. I bet given a week or two we'll hear that it is back on
47  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Gaming Trend Cookbook (Crowdsourced nom book!) on: July 19, 2013, 05:55:30 PM
this is the single most requested recipe in our circle of friends.

The Greatest Dip Ever Made By Anyone

-3 locally grown tomatoes, Plum tomatoes are great in this. Chop em up and seed them.
-1 Avocado - we like Hass avocados, so if you use those use a couple as they are small. Chop those bad boys up as well.
-1 small sweet onion (Vidalia or Walla Walla), finely chopped.
-Some garlic, finely minced. We use 2 cloves, but you might like more.
-Some fresh cilantro. Some people hate this, so we leave it out when we are making for a group.
-Oil and vingegar. We use extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar at a 1-1 ratio. Usually a Tablespoon of each.
-1 package of feta, 4-6 ounces depending on your love of cheese.

Mix up everything except the oil and vinegar and the feta.

Whisk the oil/vinegar together and add slowly to the dip, gently folding it in.

Put that cheese in and gently mix some more.

Chill for awhile before serving to allow the flavors to mix.

Having owned both an original Xbox and a 360(which I purchased day 1), I went ahead an preordered a PS4. The Xbox One policies seem a little confusing, to the point where they even have trouble explaining to me, the consumer, why I should choose them over the competition. Kinect? No thanks. I have one I never use it. The ability to play my games on any Xbox? I have exactly 1 adult gamer friend, so not a plus for me. I have to connect every 24 hours in order to use it? No thanks, that sucks. Hell they can't even clarify the used games policy, which I don't actually have as much of an issue with. I am all for developers getting paid.

At the end of the day I'm going to buy the toy that brings me the most enjoyment with the least amount of headache. Only time will tell of course, but as of right now the PS4 is a clear winner in that department.

I consider myself an Xbox fanboy. My original Xbox got the most use(and I owned all 3 consoles) and I bought a 360 the night it came out. I replaced that one with a slim and haven't felt the need to buy a PS3.

That said, I'm out on the Xbox One. Curious about PS4, but it may be PC gaming for me.

I've never purchased gold and after 12 hours or so i'm still good to go. You may have to grind a little in order ti sell items( as leveling gets damn expensive).

54  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [iOS] Eclipse: New Dawn on: May 07, 2013, 02:46:46 PM
It was a day one purchase for me. It's an excellent version of the boardgame. The tutorial does a good job of showing you the basics and playing on the easy level will bring you the rest of the way. The interface is excellent and it features asynch multiplayer, which is nice for those of us with limited time.

Anyone with a passing interest in 4x games should buy this one.

55  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Space Exploration type Board Games on: May 01, 2013, 06:21:49 PM
Eclipse is now out for the IPad and it's really, really good. If you dig the boardgame you will love it on your tablet.

So this little gem has sucked me right in over the last couple of days. It's a labor of love that's inspired by and emulates the original Bard's Tale. I really recommend it for anyone who loves the older, party based fantasy games.

I can't get over how good Procreate is. It has become, in a few short days, my most used app. Anyone with a hankering for art should check it out.
61  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Claustrophobia (a sort of review) on: March 11, 2013, 03:32:28 PM
yup, those are the assassins (I think they are called Sicaria?). We haven't fielded them yet, maybe tonight we'll get further along in the scenarios.

Of the dungeon crawlers I've played (Descent, Space Hulk, etc...) this is the stand out. The only other one that has come close is Incursion.

The preacher in number 2 still scares the crap out of me. When he starts singing, ooh imagine that playing late at night outside your bedroom window.

The fella that played him was dying of stomach cancer at the time. He was involved in some pretty out there living theatre, I believe there is video footage of him performing on youtube.

maybe...i love Danny Boyle as a director. I seem to remember he burned Ewan Mcgregor on a project (The Beach?), so getting him might be a little more difficult.
64  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Claustrophobia (a sort of review) on: March 11, 2013, 05:24:03 AM
So I got the expansion for Xmas and just this week we finally got some play time in. The new units are hellhounds and assassins. Additionally it brings new cards, tiles and scenarios into play and changes a couple of rules (demon players are limited to 3 event cards in hand, etc...)

The scenarios have been excellent thus far, with us playing the 1st two repeatedly in order to get feel for the changes. The expansion is a must have if you own the base game.
65  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie]Vacation on: March 10, 2013, 01:59:55 AM
nope, no thanks. Vacation is just fine as is, I have no interest in an update.

I wish they would make new movies rather than trying to update my childhood.

Monster House was awesome, so maybe?

I dunno, Poltergeist is pitch perfect. Plus, you need brass ones to try and remake Spielberg.

edit: Why did I think Spielberg did it? Produced it maybe? Turns out it was Tobe Hooper.

So the wife bought me an Ipad 4. Any must have games, old or new, that I should buy? I like anything in gaming that is well done. I love boardgames, so anything along those lines is cool with me.

aside from Wasteland 2, this is the game I'm most excited about. This might be the game that gets me to buy an Ipad.

Yeah, I'm really hoping I don't pick up a bug from her.

I feel kinda bad for the guy, he was a pretty nice fella and I'm sure his awesome weekend at the beach is pretty ruined.
72  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So, I just had my worst day at work ever... on: February 21, 2013, 12:46:09 AM
So, I'm a tattooer. I've been a professional tattooer for 13 years, 10 of which is in an old-time street shop on the dodgy end of town. I've seen some shit go down, so when I say this is my worst day you can damn sure believe it.

So I'm working 7 days a week, but I usually do one of those "on call". I only live a couple of miles away and the boss calls me in if I'm needed. Last night I got the call as I was sitting down to dinner and head on over to the shop. My client is a middle aged couple who live a couple of hours away, in town for a weekend at the beach. She wants some flowers on her foot to fill a gap between 2 existing tattoos, so I spend about 40 minutes or so drawing them up and we finally arrive at the design. I get her the paperwork, she uses the restroom, I set-up everything and we get ready to do the tattoo.

About 5 minutes into the tattoo she apologizes and says she needs the restroom again. I get that hinkey feeling that I get when somethings isn't right (this is 10 minutes after her last trip to the bathroom). Now my station is a little small and I'm a big dude, so i'm sort of wedged into a corner with the tattoo chair taking up the bulk of the space in the center. She comes back and we start again. We have maybe 7 minutes of the outline and she asks for a break, she feels weird. Ok, no problem. I hand her a moist paper towel to place on the back of her neck and ask her if she wants to lie back for a couple. She belches, says "That was just a burp, i'm not going to puke" and then proceeds to projectile vomit all over herself, myself and the entire room. The ceiling had puke on it. I have a cork board behind me with drawings on it, the entire board was covered in puke. I had puke on my head, all over my shoulders (from a distance of about 3 feet mind you), it got into the pockets of my cargo shorts.

So this lady starts wailing and crying and leaps up screaming how pissed she is, she can't believe that happened, she's been waiting and waiting to get her tattoo. She runs into the bathroom. Now her significant other is career military, back home from the sandbox. I'm sure he's seen some shit and he's looking at me wide eyed. He says he can't believe that happened (yeah pal, neither can I) and apologizes and asks if he can clean it up. I walk out of the room shedding puke (it sorta looked like pineapple) and go get the boss. Meanwhile my clients comes out screaming and crying and saying she can't believe that happened to her, how pissed she is, how much she wanted her tattoo. I say "Well, you can imagine how I feel". She never once  addresses me or apologizes to me.

They leave, I go home to shower, the boss cleans the shop. I wasted two hours and got covered in vomit and didn't make one thin nickle. Indeed, I tossed out around 50 bucks in materials and lost about 20 hours of drawings.

I go home and my wife expresses her sympathy while simultaneously laughing her ass off and gagging.

TL;DR - Went into work during dinner and got puked on by a client.

Keeping silent on it is the worst thing that they can do. We haven't heard word one from them at all.

Did you read Destructor's link above?  If true, it explains a lot.

I read it and I think I understand what may have happened. The thing is, while I didn't purchase the game, I'm betting a lot of people did. And 60 bucks is quite a bit of money to the average family. For any company to not only release a product in such a poor unfinished state, but also lie and falsify the quality of said product in the year preceding it's launch is reprehensible.

And all this is by a company that made Borderlands, two of my favorite games of the last year. I love those games and that makes me hate this even more.

It won't have have any negative effect on the consoles themselves, just my purchasing of them. I think I'm just getting a little jaded in my gaming.

I haven't really. My only pc is a laptop that's pretty out of date. I haven't an Ipad, but I would like one very much. Money is the issue here, I haven't much of it after my bills and I'm thinking about school so that will eat up the remainder. I need to upgrade my pc before Wasteland 2 however, as I backed that Kickstarter.

I'm much more interested in the quality of gameplay. Games have become stagnant and repetitious, with new titles emulating whatever is popular. If the next console is going to be more Assassin's Creed and CoD then it doesn't matter to me what the specs are or whether or not it requires an online connection, I'll be opting out.

I use gaming as a way of getting away from my life for a moment. If the games themselves don't start improving then I will find my escapism elsewhere.

Have you checked out what's going on with indie PC and iOS titles lately?

I find myself shifting further away from console/pc games and more into board games. I find them more entertaining(even solo) and a much better value. I have a massive backlog from this gen, so that will keep me busy for awhile.

On the other hand I might be an early adopter and just go for it. I'm a sucker for new gaming stuff.
