Back at this on the PC after a very long break, I think I played it last just after Reaper came out and didn't even finish the new Act back then.  I have been playing on the XB1 and like it quite a bit so decided to see what Adventure Mode was all about.  Pretty fun doing the quests and getting some unexpected drops (much more rare and legendary items than I saw playing XB1 campaign mode).  Started a Monk having never played on before and of course Blizzard has made him fun to play as I'm sure all of them are.  One night of adventure on hard got me up to lvl 32 and I'm happy with that, I guess I could join a pub game to increase the exp but didn't feel up to it tonight.

Did one rift to see what it was and had good fun with that too, sooooo many treasure goblins to kill.

I just want to know how Sean Bean dies.



Guess it depends on how George R. R. Martian wrote the script!

Watched some PS4 beta gameplay and it just reinforces my outness for COD's moving forward.  I haven't seen any crazy movement like AW had but the pace of the game is just too fast for me these days.  Some of the movement reminded me of Destiny with added Titanfall wall running and that seemed fine but the extremely quick death time once you get shot at spoils any fun I think I might have.  The two maps I've seen look pretty good.

It was some Dying Light achievement, I don't know which.

I'd like to thank my parents, my elementary school teachers, and especially all of you at GT, without who this great feat would surely not be possible.

The future looks bright now - if I can accomplish this, I feel like no dream is too big.

Hold out for a role in Pixels 2 "Even more F'ed up than the first!"  50k points should make you a shoe in for Josh Gads love interest.

Except for GameSpot, which gave it a 7/10. However, their reviewer seemed to have a MAJOR gripe with the abundance of Batmobile sequences. The other really high reviews I read mentioned this, but didn't dock points for it.

ya and that guy who reviews is usually extreme in his reviews.  I know 7 isn't a extreme bad scores, but like YK mentioned his major gripe is the batmobile's overuse.  And that warrants a mediocre score....  

When I saw that score in comparison with the other scores, my first thought was: "I bet it was reviewed by Kevin VanOrd." And wouldn't you know... He's very cynical about most games these days, and has a hard time liking them. His scores tend to be outliers.

Having said that, the constant mentions of too many tank sequences in the game from so many reviewers aren't surprising, but disappointing nonetheless. The Batmobile sequences never looked appealing, from the first time the game was revealed. That the game is littered with sequences where you have to use it is a shame, because it might seem like they tried to innovate needlessly here.

Didn't he give Witcher 3 a very rare 10?

Yes, he did.

To be honest I'd go 9.5 due to non game stopping bugs (for me).  Love the game but can't agree it is perfect.

Jon Snow and Stannis


Spoiler for Hiden:
What was the point of all the "real lineage" of jon snow stuff if he just bites it?  Also, what's with the Stannis death scene?  Why the cut away.  Is he or isn't he?  I thought he was dead and they showed what they needed to.  What about you guys?

Spoiler for Hiden:
if nothing else we may get hot Kingslayer on Kingslayer action if Jamie and Brieanna get together.  Stannis is dead, at least that is my opinion.  Jon? No clue.

Well whichever way the spoiler stuff goes I just hope we continue to get some decent series moving forwards.  5 seasons in and thre doesn't seem to be any indication that the forces of good are moving towards each other, how many seasons do we have left, have they ever said?  I have enjoyed each season so far.

Its not a lie if she really identifies as black, Lee.  If Jenner taught us anything it is that our perceptions of ourselves are in fact the reality that matters.

That begs the question "how do you perceive yourself ATB?"

Shenmue is a kick starter that Sony distanced themselves from during its introduction.  FF7 is a remake so what is the big deal with that?  Last Guardian seemed nice enough but what do we know about it beyond a bit of gameplay?  What Sony exclusives are landing in 2015?  What is Sony rolling out this year other than a few exclusive early beta access and maps that isn't on the PC or XB1?  Too be fair I can't remember what the XB1 has either but most of what I got from Sony was more see you next year stuff and nothing close to release.  In no way do I see it as any form of landslide.

That jeep driving sequence was hilariously over the top.

And then the two talking heads post presentation are god damn annoying. Somebody punch them.

I wouldn't want to have to keep trying that Jeep sequence over and over even if it does look good.

For me MS had a better day than Sony.  The whole backwards compatibility thing and actually showing AR stuff in use was more interesting to me than Sony Vue and hardly any VR stuff.

New gameplay of No Man's Sky

Showing Lots of stars in a massive galaxy.  Scanning after launching into a unknown star lights up a bunch of points of interest on your display.  

Fully destructible environments, trading, fighting, exploring mentioned.

Gameplay



This just does not look fun to me

Agreed.  Too big an area so how can you get anywhere or find anyone?

Finally.  They have finally shown us The Last Guardian, and gameplay too instead of just a cinematic.

Looks a lot like Shadow of the Colossus in terms of motion and interaction between boy and the Griffin.

Good start with South Park and good finish with Ghost Recon but that was a messy middle.  You are up Sony!  Let's see some Morpheous action.

Totally agree. At least Aisha Tyler made it entertaining.

She did a good job of rolling with the punches when things got a bit off track.  I hope Ubi continues to bring her in to host these things but if she can't make it then Ms. Forget can step in and grace my screen anytime!

So, a marginally better presentation compared to EA. Ubi showed more actual gameplay but they still were heavy on the prerendered video. That's the way E3 is evolving now I guess.

Sony is up next. I have low expectations based on what I've see so far today.

I actually liked some of the MS stuff (BC with 360 stuff, Rare collection, pirate game etc.) but EA and Ubi didn't impress at all.  I still have hope that Sony can bring some heat to finish off the day, VR should make some sort of appearance I guess.  Will Sony rethink their BC streaming service and put it out for free after MS did what they did earlier?
