Still no keybinding = I can't play.
Why can't you play it?
I'm left handed. The arrow keys are what are comfortable to me.

I thought I read somewhere that it natively supports the 360 controller. Failing that, plug it in and use Joy2Key or something for basic movement. Not exactly optimal though.

Also, a lot of the game's configs are in xml format. You may be able to manually change configs that way, Zarkon.

And the only reason why I was able to take down the first boss was that I stumbled upon a gun shop selling level 10 ranged weapons. Blew away what I was capable of doing with my Iron Bow.

FYI - another big update is coming soon, which more than likely will cause a player wipe. But the devs will be changing the leveling system from 100 down to just 10 (without removing content). Basically it'll have Easy/Medium/Hard mobs giving the game the same feeling that it has now, without you being just slaughtered whenever fighting someone above your level.

Oh, and random - the game has mod support and modders are already going nuts with it. New ship designs, new items, ways to modify game settings, etc etc.

See, that's the thing.  The answer shouldn't be "use a third party solution".  It should be "it's already in the game".  When it's in the game, I'll play it.

Animaniacs:  Lights, Camera Action for the Nintendo DS.  It was a review title, it was putrid, and it was essentially a port of the GBA title of the same name.  It used the touch screen exclusively to pause and (I think) change characters.  It also used a /password save system/.  I think I gave it a 29/100.

Up to you guys.

So, let's put everything in one spot.  I've got a Google doc up where you can add....pretty much anything that you want.  It's currently set up for the following:

GT Forum
PSN/SEN
Xbox Live
Steam
Raptr
3DS
Nintendo (Wii U)
Twitter
Twitch.tv

Everyone can enter their own information and update as necessary.  If there's anything else you guys want to add, just let me know.  Added the ability to list which devices you have for PSN/XBL so we can have better ideas there.

You can do all this at the following link!

16  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CBS will air 4 days of 1963 JFK Assassination Coverage on: November 17, 2013, 07:17:02 PM
I don't think it's disrespectful. 

That said, I think it's another shot at the standard American concept of commemorating everything to death, and only caring about ourselves.  I think four days of coverage from 50 years ago is completely excessive and unnecessary.  Put it on the CBS website so people who want it can look at it, that's fine.  I've been to the JFK travelling museum, and it was really cool.  That said, I have absolutely no interest in seeing TV Coverage from 1963.  Nor do I want to see TV Coverage from September 11, 2001, or January 28, 1986.  I don't want to wallow in depressing moments of the past. 

As a country, we're completely self-centered and short-sighted.  Look at the Time magazine cover last week:  Around the world, the cover story is about the disaster in the Philippines.  Here?  JFK.   And we wonder why the rest of the world thinks that we're idiots.

I seeing increasingly large numbers of people on various websites experiencing a "blue light of death" with their new PS4 units. Some go bad after a few hours of play, others are bad right out of the box:

http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-Battlefield-Launch-Day-Bundle-4/product-reviews/B00DE2W5XG/ref=cm_cr_pr_top_link_1?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=byRankDescending


Any chance this is just software related, or does there indeed seem to be a large number of defective units in the first batch?

I'm guessing that this is firmware-based, and not hardware, based on what I have going on.

I'm sure the headset is probably quite crap but being able to use pretty much any headset or earphones you have lying around should take the sting out of it a bit.

The headset is very crap, yes.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 16, 2013, 03:17:26 PM
So got mine yesterday from Amazon, and plugged it up last night.  Everything is pretty and awesome, and then I update to 1.50.....


now it won't give me video or audio unless I go into Safe Boot and reboot it again from there.  It's not a hardware issue that I can tell, because it works once it goes to Safe Boot.   I haven't re-initialized the system yet, but I may.  I'm thinking this 1.50 firmware update has issues.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox 360: the must-play games. on: November 14, 2013, 04:41:22 AM
That's the thing.  Most of the best games are cross-platform between PS3, 360 and (often) PC.

Quote from: Canuck on November 12, 2013, 12:34:31 AM

I'm not planning on picking up any games when my PS4 arrives. To be honest, I'm not sure I'll even be keeping it. But on the chance (possibly large chance as I might be too lazy to bother selling it) that I keep it, what will I be able to play Day 1 even if I haven't bought any games?

Drive Club - delayed
Resogun
Contrast
Warframe (F2P)
DC Universe Online (F2P)
War Thunder- *Day 1 for Europeans, Day 14 for NA (F2P)
Blacklight Retribution (F2P)

Anything else? That sounds like a ton of games to play for free*. What's this Blacklight game all about? I've never heard of it before.  Will the F2P games have a decent amount of content or will it be like playing a Zynga game?

You'll get a free month of PS+.  That'll give you Resogun and Contrast, I believe.  Then there's DC Universe Online, Warframe et al.  That said, Target and Amazon are both doing B2G1 free sales on PS4 games this week, so...*shrug*

Quest rewards are by class and are available on the POE Wiki (can't remember the URL right now, I'm at work). 

There are a few gems that are either drop-only, or only show up as Quest rewards in Act 3 of Merciless (the 3rd difficulty, like Inferno in Diablo 3).  These are usually expensive.  For example, Multistrike goes for 6-7 Chaos, and is one of those gems from Act 3 of Merciless.

I was a big requester of this when I was here.  Very glad you guys have gone to it, and it's something I'm implementing myself.  Screw this 'school' average stuff.  Leads to score inflation and a clusterfuck of scores between 80-100 and leads to many reviews being nearly useless at a glance. 

Congrats, guys.

Re Guild:  You have a 30 person cap, and can expand it to 200....at a cost of $1 per person (in chunks of 10).  I don't know the price on extra stash tabs, but I wouldn't be surprised if GGG ends up discounting these periodically. 

I'm in the Something Awful guild (Pants in Exile) and we're already capped at 200.

36  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: GT HiveMind, I'm looking to build a new, cheap rig. on: October 30, 2013, 10:09:52 PM
CPU:  I'd go with an Intel Core i5 . You can get a solid one for around $200 (if not less). 
RAM:  You want at least 8GB of DDR3.  Personally, I went with 16GB for gaming, but there's probably not a huge difference.  This is going to impact which motherboard you purchase, as well.
Power Supply:  I'd go with Modular if you can, and the overall wattage isn't as important as the constant amount of wattage on the 12v rails (I believe).   You definitely want at least 2 if not 4 6-pin connectors on it.

Either there are fewer games getting coverage at E3 this year....or I'm just really bored of what I'm reading (on various sites). 

Just read a horrible story on Joystiq, talking about Disgaea D2 (I'm interested in said game), that literally had one sentence of real information buried among five paragraphs of fluff.   So damn bored this E3.

Just because it's the lowest price doesn't make it good, though.  If it was $25-30 per season, it'd be a solid deal.  Putting them at $50 on sale just means that the original price is insanely high. biggrin
