Yeah sorry I didn't notice it was a story trailer.  My universal translator didn't catch the capital "H" in NuABH8Z8iwk.....  icon_lol

Story Trailer  I am much more interested now.  It looks like it might have a strong story.

- Lego City (my 9 year old completed it.  open world GTA but with legos)

It isn't quite as good but Lego Marvel Superheroes has scratched that same itch since we finished Lego City.  So when you have finished Undercover you should look into it.

Horrible seems pretty strong.  I thought it was a fun (and somewhat flawed) Diablo clone.


Perhaps.  I think Nox was a better clone though

Once I looked at the page I remember that game...and it was horrible.  Why can't they port the great RPGs of the age rather than the crappy ones?  Why can't I have Wizzardy 8? 

48  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 05, 2014, 09:40:03 PM
I think I will force myself to finish a few of what I have before I buy either one.  When thinking about them I googled best RPGs on the ios and I kept seeing games I had already bought but never finished (ie Bastion, Bard's Tale, Oceanhorn, Sword and Sworcery, Shadowrun...)  I buy a lot when the itch hits but then never finish.

Everyone has talked about the story in Avadon.  Perhaps I should give it a try.
52  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 04, 2014, 08:28:18 PM
On another note has anyone tried Avadon 2: The Corruption or Shadow Sun?  I am itching for an RPG and I have both these on my watch list.  Avadon just came out but I assume it is as good as other Spiderweb Software games.  However Shadow Sun looks better.

53  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 04, 2014, 08:12:59 PM
Yeah I guess a bit.  Perhaps I have never lived long enough to really notice much.   icon_confused


I tried a no stopping unless I needed something run.  I got to 16 star systems which is a record for me but I still died eventually, just a random you died scenario.  While I lasted longer in terms of numbers of systems it felt a bit less fun because I wasn't exploring to find neat stuff.  I was just stopping for gas and moving on.  In some ways that fits the story better I guess but it doesn't suit my style.

54  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 04, 2014, 07:48:20 PM
Maybe I am missing something.  A couple of reviews I have read say things like "Every decision in Out There demands a careful risk/reward calculation."  I never feel that.  Usually I have one or two possible star systems I can go to.  That isn't much of a careful calculation.  Most of the time the choice appears to be quit or go to the next star system.  How is that a choice? 

Anyway lots of reviews say it is great so I must not be getting something.

I guess this means the PS4 has surpassed the Wii U in total sales already.

Shut up you!  I love my Wii U.  I can play...stuff on it (if there was stuff to play)....

Out There mini review. (Heck this is just a conclusion - watch Youtube for a real review.)

After a dozen or so games I think I am done.  The game is great in many ways but it is lacking that "just one more try" feeling because I don't think there is a snowballs chance in hell of my getting home.  Some games ended very quickly - like first planet - when the interplanetary drive broke so I couldn't go planets.  Makes for a short game.  Some games lasted a bit longer with a few fun by the seat of my pants situations.  Finding just enough Iron to fix a necessary part etc.  But no game lasted more than 10 or so systems.   Something always breaks, some catastrophe always happens.   

Catastrophes are what the game is about.  I have played these kinds of games before, but OT seems to miss the balance.  There are two ways to go I think

1. no chance of success but fast gameplay and loading screens so you can keep trying, and a way to measure your score against your last one.  Kind of an endless runner thing.   OT doesn't do that very well.

2. a small chance of success if you take few risks and make good choices.  OT fails this mostly because there are no choices to make.  It is all random.  I can't pick a better star system to go to because (as far as I can tell) they are all about equal.  You don't get enough different minerals to really make interesting choices on what to build.  99% of the time I can build one item in a game if I am lucky.

All in all it feels like they wanted an endless runner type where you would fail all the time but get better each time (or try to)  but they missed that quick jump into a game feeling. 

Overall I would give this game a "B"  It is pretty and fun at first but I won't be going back again and again like I did with Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space.






57  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: March 03, 2014, 03:09:19 PM
It has a lot of reading so I wasn't sure you would like it. smile


It is quite fun.  If you ever played strange worlds in infinite space you know exactly what your game play will be like.  They added a bit of stuff - like drilling, and ... well really that is all I can think of.  You pick a star system, fly to it, go to the different planets and drill to find resources for fuel, oxygen, and building materials.  Then go on to the next planet, rinse repeat.  Sometimes you meet an alien and can get stuff from them, sometimes you find some artifact, etc. 

Random created universe on each play so you just go until you run out of resources, or get killed by something.

I am finding it fun but it is very light on story.

You should watch the whole movie though because it is funnier when it is all together.

I took a look at the list of 30 anticipated PS4 games for 2014 over at IGN, to gauge at what point I'd probably want to buy a PS4.

Of the 30, I think only 3 or 4 were exclusives. Of those 3 or 4, I was only interested in 1.

So at this point, I really can't justify dropping the money. Sure, it would be nice to play cross-platform titles with slightly better specs, but certainly not $400 nice.

I think this will certainly change over time as the library fills out and new features roll in, but for now I'm still in a holding pattern and anticipate probably being that way for a year or more.

+1

That and I have my backlog of PS3 games to finish anyway so it isn't like I am in a drought!

It reminds me of "The Watchmen" in that fans of the comics will like it but it makes little to no sense to someone who doesn't know about the comic.  That is fine except it isn't going to do well at the box office.

Watch it here.

Lots of news but I am terrible at linking to each bit so watch it if you are intreested

Personally I was looking for more info about "X" but really didn't get much.  Video of "X" gameplay.  Looks great but considering Xenoblade Chronicles came out in 2010 in Japan but didn't hit the US until 2012 I am not expecting a US release date for "X" this year.  If they would have showed an English version I would feel differently but it feels like a title that will be release in Japan first then translated rather than a game in development in both languages at the same time.

I was happy to see a bit more about Mario Golf World Tour.  I loved the first one so I have high hopes. 


Other than those two I really didn't see much to get excited about.

This is turn-based? Weird, every video I've ever seen of the game made it seem like an action spin off.

No, it isn't turn-based.  You can assign up to 4 actions (one each to a controller button).  You then pick those actions and they use so much of a bar.  If that bar goes empty, you can switch over to another "class" which has its own bar.  It's all real time.

Blarg watched lots of videos, know the answer

Gametrailers review. Not very positive.

"The story is laughable, even painful to sit through.  The 13 games were convoluted before but Lightning Returns adds another thinck layer of incomprehensible nonsense.  The game feels less like a fitting conclusion and more like the runt of the litter."

The Flappy Bird creator has pulled the game from the app store

Quote
This is a strange story for an otherwise normal Saturday, but apparently Dong Nguyen, creator of the international super hit Flappy Bird [Free], has had enough of everything that comes with being an overnight sensation and is going to take the game down from the App Store. He apologizes to Flappy Bird players, and states via Twitter "22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore."


I guess I don't understand what he can't take.  Is there just a ton of emails?  Can he be pestered in other ways?
