enjoyed MS presser.  They gave people games and they're being criticized for basically showing games. 


Who's criticizing them for showing mostly games?

In general, it seems to me the response is quite positive on the route they chose this year and that the whole shebang is vastly improved over last year.

The only criticism seems to be that the games themselves were a little underwhelming.  OTOH, there was nothing bad, just nothing that was surprising or super exciting.

I'm curious if Sony has anything exceptional that would be surprising or super exciting,  MS showed a varity of games that held my intrest and many looked really good visually.  If you don't own a XB1 I can see why there wasn't any real system sellers but if you do have the console I'd say things look good for the near future.

Meant to add, a few comments about being 1080p/60fps so maybe they are getting a handle on the new console.

Tough crowd here, I thought Forza was looking good and now has day/night and weather something that was deemed lacking by some.  Still need a decent wheel for the new console.

I agree Tilt, EA is not doing all that well up on stage.

So that first girl, are you trying to say "is she hot or not?"  As for Danny going to Giantbomb, it looks like their new hire is Dan Ryckert from Game Informer.  I never visited GI before but wanted to get some idea of who Dan was and so watched a few videos he was in and I think he will work quite well at GB.  Watch the first episode of the Overblood super replay, very funny stuff.

Otter has forsaken meeeee!  ninja

And yet I was online last night playing BF4 on XB1 and where were you?  Hmmmm?????

I really have not looked at WatchDogs multiplayer to even think that it might be a big focus for the game.  Is multiplayer looking to be a good draw?

I have to admit I ordered for the PS4 with the thinking it would be another game for the system, so far my PS4 library consists of AssCree 4 and..... nothing else.  I haven't turned on the PS4 in quite some time.

Well that's funny, I guess I preordered this from Amazon last June and forgot about. Just got my shipment notice.

Same for me, PS4 version.  Had I remembered the preorder I think I would have canceled it, not due to the quality of the game or PS4 but just to wait and see how the game is reviewed.  I don't have a overwhelming desire to play Watchdogs and probably would have skipped it unless it comes very highly rated.

I like the idea of the game, I'm thinking that pickup games with random players might be a tad contentious due to the high level of co-op required by the hunters.  Be super fun to listen to developmentally challenged teammates curse your every move.  I think it would be super fun with a good group though.  To bad for me that it is hitting the streets at the busiest time of the year work wise for me, no playing until mid-November when my schedule returns to normal or something close to it.

I'll choose to believe that this creates a niche in the market that somebody may try to exploit.  Kinect owners will be looking for anything to play using their device and maybe that allows for a bit more sell though on a game owners may not usually buy.  A developer could try and capture that market with something/anything, could go either way though if crappy trash games are put out instead of quality Kinect titles.  I will hold out hope for a good fitness program, what I would really like is one that has streching and flexing as part of the program sorta like Fitness Evolved but better intergrated.

I agree with YellowKing that MS is trying to change with the market and listening to its customer/potential customer base, can't be all bad.

Yeah, I don't really see why there is any confusion on what the show is going to be about. Seems pretty straightforward to me.

I'm not so much confused as to what the show is about as I am wondering what the intended target audience is, or maybe more why did this idea get a green light instead of something else.  The Marvel universe is chock full of characters and stories, and of all of them, somehow this is what the powers that be chose to bet their money on?  A period drama that's a tangential spinoff to a show whose ratings were already in question (SHIELD), that can't really have direct tie-ins to the next few movies and is most associated to what's generally considered the most boring of all the Marvel movies (Cap 1)? 

Maybe they are going for a Indiana Jones vibe with Agent Carter in the lead role fighting Nazis who are searching for or creating some ultimate weapon of the week?  I have no idea but will tune in to see what they trying.

Agent of Shield experienced one of the best turnarounds on a show I've seen.  It's up there with The Sarah Connor Chronicles for complete turnabout when it comes to quality.  

I think you can safely ignore all but the last 4 shows or so and dive back in to get to the good stuff, if you were interested.

I never saw Sarah Conner Chronicles but I agree that S.H.I.E.L.D. really improved over the last few episodes, glad I stuck with it as I was pretty close to moving along.

Cool, I spent a couple hours getting summoned into other people's games and then summoned some people into mine to help beat a boss.  Pretty fun helping other people, but I wish I could stay with them longer.

Man, that makes the game sooooo much easier it's not even funny.  One person can kite the dumb enemies while the other one or two hit from behind and they just die so quickly.  Plus I'm just raking in souls for beating all of those enemies and bosses even when I'm just helping other people.

One complaint I would have is that even with lots of souls to level up it doesn't feel like leveling up really does me much good.  I think I'm level 40 (or near enough) now and I don't really feel any stronger than I was at level 20.   icon_confused

You get the biggest bang in upgrading your equipment vs leveling your character especially in the early game.  It doesn't explain it well in the game but some weapons have different bonuses based on your stats, if you look at the bottom left when selecting weapons you will see them down below.  So a weapon that doesn't look that great early in the game can become quite powerful with upgrading plus the addition of your stat bonuses. 

What I run into is that I have many many souls but not enough Titanite shards/chunks/slabs/whatever to upgrade things so I tend to level up when I can't upgrade weapons.  Would love to find more Titanite.

Tried laying down the summoning sign last night and was amazed at how quick I got summoned into a game.  I did end up doing one boss solo as I had ran past lots of mobs to get to the boss area and didn't have time to try a summon before the mobs would have caught me, lots of fun.

Had some time off so tried a bit of Titanfall this weekend.  I didn't have that great a time with it, fun in spots but the matchmaking seems really borked.  I got put into matches with guys who were level 40ish on their 5th or 6th prestige while I was level 3 on my first attempt to play.  This did not end well for me, just too much going on to even get a sense of the game play before I was shot over and over by players who obviously know so much more about what is going on.  I'm not sure I'll go back to it anytime soon, I'd have rather spent my time playing Dark Souls 2 on the 360.

[edit]  Ooops didn't review the thread before posting and so apologies for not being a beacon of light for this game Pug!  I'm sure it is fun for the right players, I'm just a wrong one [/edit]

Could just be a little gaming fatigue Otterchaos. Sometimes I'm in the mood for just an RTS, or a slow paced RPG.

Quite probably, I don't get much good sleep these days as I'm working 1830 to 0630 six days a week so patience is pretty low and FPS's take some of that.  I managed to grab the last copy of Dark Souls II for the 360 at the local WallyMart so I am going to dig into that for a bit.  I'm sure to try Titanfall again later tonight.

Eh I think i'm just not into multiplayer shooters much anymore.  Played two matches and topped the scoreboard once but I really wasn't all that engaged with the game.  In fact I'm taking a break and thinking of pulling my 360 out of storage and running to gamestop for a copy of Dark Souls II which I feel would be more my style.

Don't get me wrong, Titanfall seems like a great game and I'm sure to continue playing more when my crazy work hours cease here soon.  Dark Souls seems a better fit for me right now though.

Ultimately it hinges on how much you care about the characters and what happens to them.  If you don't like Rick or Carl or the actors who portray them, it's no surprise you're losing interest because it's really their story for the most part.  



I think that is very true in my case, never liked Carl and Rick has sort of taken on a one dimensional state in more recent episodes.  I guess my overall point would be that I just fast forward past the zombie attacks as they all play out the same and watch the story elements unfold but the story isn't grabbing me now.  I don't hate the show but to compare it to another show without a real overall goal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the difference is that I liked watching those characters unlike my feelings about the main focus characters in Walking Dead.

Survival is most definitely a goal.  They tried to create a community.  That was a goal.  They attempted to save Andrea and stop the governor.  More goals.  The show has a plethora of goals.  Goals both large and small.  

See I used the term I a lot in my response allowing for the possibility of other reactions or feelings about the show, I don't see your reply having any room for opposite opinions.  The goals you list have all been done in some fashion before and to what end?  everyone will die at some point and become zombies, in fact I have to believe in the Walking Dead universe that all Canadians are all ready zombies as they didn't have access to guns like the Americans and had to fend the zombies off with hockey sticks.  

Also if survival is a goal then why do Carl and Rick walk around with only guns?  No backpacks, rations or other camping/survival gear, kind bugs me.

I'm losing interest in the show as well.  For me it is the lack of an overall goal or destination that makes each episode seem to be a mirror of other episodes.  While I can appreciate the character development, there isn't any thing else to capture my attention.  Narrow escape from zombies, group falls apart and scatters, main character dies and turns into zombie... Seen it all before, I liked the first season where they had a goal of getting to the CDC in Atlanta but since then nothing.  I'll watch but it probably won't command my full attention, I'll do the dishes or play the piano during the show.
