Father G will have to wait for another day, time for work.  He stun locks me so fast when I try to melee him even once but I have a plan to work on with him, hope it helps.

Still stuck on the first two bosses, I think my locking the camera on the bridge boss caused me to die due to poor camera positioning.  I'm in the process of farming up blood vials and echos to try again, not sure what level I'm at now but still can't upgrade weapons which I figure is locked until I get past at least one of these two.  Father G seemed doable but I ran out of vials and he moves so fast, got him down to half on first try.  Maybe we need to come up with a MP password for GT'ers if we are playing at the same time and want to co-op.  I put forth Gtrend as an option for the password.

Nevermind misread at first.

You need an item before you can upgrade weapons.  Cleric Beast I think is easier to tackle first, what was your starting weapon?


I started with the Hunter Axe and found a Saw Spear but I don't like it too much, low dmg.  I think I need to buy lots of molotov's and upgrade my endurance so I can swing and dodge a bit more.  One thing I might change is to not use the two hand version of the axe so much, uses lots of endurance but then again I don't like having to get so close to the beast to hit it with the one hand version.

Use the axe one handed.  You should be able to trade some blows with him and come out ahead with regain.  

Just got him, one handed was the right choice and I managed to stagger him three times with molotov's which helped with the damage.  Whew, onward!

I really love the From level design, even though I'm struggling with the two bossed I've managed to open shortcuts that make the run back fairly quick.

  Few more hours into it and to be honest the load times are not bothering me that much, still a pain but the game is so enjoyable (and hard of course) that I have not noticed the loading time that much.  Still in the starter area and just leveled up for the first time with the level up system straight out of Dark Souls which I like.  I have to adjust my play style as the way I used to play in DS isn't  an option here.  Ran into my first boss and got wiped fairly quickly and I probably need to level up a bit before trying again.

  Exploring the first area is lots of fun tense action knowing you might lose your souls (or whatever Bloodborne calls them now).  I do wish Bloodborne did a better job of showing where your dropped souls were, as it is now if they are not taken up by a mob (which is a nice touch btw and you can tell who has them pretty easily) they stay on the ground and the indicator for them doesn't look that much different than all the notes and other things sprinkled on the ground. I had to backtrack once to gather them up once I realized no mob had them and I overlooked them on the ground.  I liked Dark Souls with the big green orb showing where you needed to get to.

Well this is certainly a Dark Souls game, many things are familiar.  Didn't get too far but die (of course) a few times.  Default weapon seems very slow and takes some getting used to, timing is still very important in this game.  Not liking the load times at all especially in a game that I expect to die a lot in, I'm sure someone will time how long it takes to respawn.  Graphics are ok but not next gen jaw dropping stuff, still too early to make a real judgement as I've only seen the opening area.  I like it and don't regret the purchase but those load times ugh.

Well I'm hoping they can fix my vision soon, yesterday they injected me with dye and took lots of photos.  If I get a chance I'll let you know how my vision works in VR, as it is now I pretty much read/surf with my right eye closed so it doesn't strain trying to focus.
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So 2015 the year of VR? on: March 05, 2015, 06:49:02 PM
I would like to try out a set if only because my right eye won't focus better than 20/200 right now so my vision is primarily left eye dominant.  I figure this could be a real issue when you need to look at separate screens in order to get the VR experience.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So 2015 the year of VR? on: March 01, 2015, 10:52:42 PM
With the announcement of Valve getting into VR with the Vive headset (didn't the Rift start at Valve and Valve let the developers go after deciding not to pursue it?), the Rift nearing release (I think?) and Sony moving along with Morpheus there will be some decisions needed to be made ala VHS or BetaMax.  I am a bit surprised that Valve jumped in here after Facebook spent so much on getting the Rift into their clutches.  I admit I feel better with a company like Valve developing VR as opposed to Facebook where I question if they might tie it to more social media stuff vice games (and I guess movies...).  The Vive is supposed to be released this year as well, hope there is some demo of it at PAXEast.

Oh and I forgot to mention Xbox and their AR development.

The sad thing is that I don't think anyone would be complaining about the length if it wasn't for that initial report on the YouTube playthrough. Since when did gamers become such sheeple?

I don't know - a $60 game with no MP and no bonus modes that's just 7-9 hours in length with lots of unskippable cutscenes? I think people would be talking about it even without that speed run video. Especially a game that's been in development as long as The Order.

Yep this mirrors my opinion, The Order is not a slam dunk must buy and you must do your homework before purchase to see if it is a gamestyle you want to play.  As for me?  Nope not interested in it at all after seeing a few videos of it in action.

Heck no, mine uses HDMI. I guess I should say "as well" but all I'm using are the HDMI ports.

which one do you have?

I've had this Sony HT-CT100 Sound Bar for awhile now and it's been a good choice, IMHO. Discontinued now but plenty of newer models, from what I recall they all have a decent selection of connection options.

So your sony soundbar has led me to this...  I have $50 in gift cards that expire in a few days.  I've been toying with getting a 2nd controller for the ps4 but I might use that towards this...  http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=A7679079
What do you think?  I'm gonna go check it out at best buy and hope it's on display

No experience with the Sony but I just bought this http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-ATS-1030-Built-Subwoofers-Bluetooth/dp/B00NT6JSKK at Cosco for $189.  Seems to work well but have yet to try the Bluetooth stuff.  I liked the built in subwoofers instead of a separate wireless one that others had.  It has coax, analog and optical inputs but no Hdmi input.  I'm using it along with my XB1, PS4 and Wii U setup.  The consoles plug into the TV via HDMI and the TV goes into the sound bar via optical.

Sorry Niners for wrecking your playoff chances. 

Trust me you didn't wreck it.  That was called implosion.  From coach to QB

Yep except the defense I guess, 3rd in the league.  Did someone email out the offensive play book to the other teams this year?  It looks like everybody has figured out the Niners scheme.

I've had mostly good luck with randoms on strikes.  A few drops here and there, but most of the time some decent teamwork, pointing out chest locations, and a wave/salute upon completing the strike with occasional dancing, though I'm too old for that last bit and just sit down to rest..
Is everyone on the FT able to loot the same chest during a strike mission? 

I think so? 

You can but the chest will disappear quickly after the first person loots it, best to have everyone near the chest before opening it up as that will allow everyone to loot it.

Ahhhh PvP, it is fun but getting one shotted gets old quick.  To make it even more fun I got "lucky" and received a bounty quest for an exotic (gold engram) hand canon and the second step in order to get the gun is that I have to collect 500 points  by getting kills in PvP.  Just a grind right?  Well i get 5 points per kill so eventually I'll get there with time so you'd think but there are two kickers, first is that every time I die I lose 2 points and the second is that I have to use void damage to get credit for the kills.  No primary weapon that I know of has void damage so it is shotguns, fusion rifles etc only to try and get this done.  This will probably never get finished and it takes up one of my five bounty spots.  

I currently have 58 points and that is after having career games with up to 20 ( that is right Hark, 20) kills in a match.

GiantBomb is a good site, but Jeff Gerstmann has very unusual opinions about games that often don't match those of the average gamer.

Jeff and I used to have virtually the same opinion on games. If he liked it I did. If he didn't I probably didn't.  That said, he has become SO MUCH more cynical since Ryan died.  He pretty much hates everything and I'm not sure why he's still the business other than because he's really good at it. It just seems the passion is gone.

Anyway, finally played my first strike on Earth and...I. LOVED. IT.

After bringing the Guardian Gospel to the Fallen heathens, the two randoms and I spontaneously broke out dancing and it thus far is one of the highlights of the experience.

I've played that raid 2 more times and now I'm overleveled for it (10) and am finding that I still need to figure out how to balance exploration/crucible/repeating missions with not getting ahead of the recommended levels for the story missions.

The first time through that raid it was me @ 7 and two other 8s i believe. And it was wonderfully tense.  2nd time I did it I was 8 or just about to hit 9 with two other guys at the same level.  It was tough but a bit easier.  As a 10, it wasn't a cakewalk, but it was none too hard either.

So now I'm going to concentrate on story missions so I don't outrace the difficulty.

Really happy with the game so far, but I am just getting smacked around in the crucible...

You can turn up the difficulty of a mission if it looks too easy after you get more levels, click on the normal tab before launching the mission and you can see what higher levels are available.  Increasing the base difficultiy turns it into a heroic level.

I hope the actual game isn't so heavy on combat encounters, I'm not good at the dogfighting and the free ship you start with is very under armed.  I've yet to have an encounter that didn't end in fighting and usually my death.  Had a neat area where I found gold floating in space so I deployed my cargo scoop to pick some up but of course two heavily armed fighters dropped in and killed me before I could get close to the gold.  I suppose I should have done silent running but did not have time to try it as they showed up and started firing right away.  I guess I need to read up on the game and find out how to make money in ways other than dogfighting.
