I posted this first elsewhere, but I'll repost it here....

I haven't really been following this issue but I saw this article on PCGamesN, Notch on selling Minecraft to Microsoft: “It’s not about the money. It’s about my sanity”. It's an interesting read...

An excerpt:
Quote
He ends by saying: “I love you. All of you. Thank you for turning Minecraft into what it has become, but there are too many of you, and I can’t be responsible for something this big. In one sense, it belongs to Microsoft now. In a much bigger sense, it’s belonged to all of you for a long time, and that will never change.

Since it belongs to me can I expect a bit of cash from MS for it?  Or was this "bigger sense" not really redeemable for cash?

Both good points.  I would doubt they discontinue the service though without allowing people time to port their number over so it might be nice for awhile.

Nothing.  Kind of a dull week.

I wish this game had more SP, or more variety of missions.  I admit I am only at level 8 but from the comments I think I can see that I will be deploying my ghost and waiting while mobs come at me until it is finished for the rest of the game. 

I love the graphics, I love way the weapons feel, I love everything but I expect to be shelving it in a few weeks.

Hey Roguetad, how did you join my fire team yesterday?  Are you able to just jump in friend games?  When I saw you in-game and waved I thought that was cool, but I thought you would disappear once we got to the no respawn area.  Very cool to do some coop and clear out that dungeon.  So much more fun in a group than solo.
I think you can join into any friends fireteams at any time, no invite required. 

Really?  That is cool.

Port the number to Google Voice.  It is a one time fee of $20 but then you have the phone number as a google voice number for you forever.  So every time you get a new phone you can just tell google voice to ring that number. 

Things I love

1. it can ring multiple phones.  So we have my wife's number and mine ring then we give that number to the school, doctor's office, etc.  If one of the kids is sick the school only has to call one number and whichever one of us can answer does.

2. if neither of us can answer it goes to voice mail.  The nice part though is that the voice mail is transcribed and sent to you gmail account, and also sent as a text!  My old office as in a basement with no cell reception and it was great to just see an email come in with the voice mail.  Then I could call back on the land line phone.  Or I would see the text when I got somewhere with reception.

Someone else correct me if I'm wrong but I think Gold is required to play even the solo parts. It's because Destiny is a server based game, so even when you play solo, you're still playing online and other players will run by you and can interact with you if they want. So my guess is that you need gold to play the game solo or multi.

Removed my link because other sources say different things.  I guess we will have to wait for someone to try it out.

I was hoping for a good sci-fi game.  I knew I shouldn't have trusted Bungie to do that. 

I have to say I don't know who would be better to trust.  I guess Bioware but other than that I think Bungie is #2 on the list.

There are now 25 known codes to redeem, and a kind soul on Reddit wrote a little javascript you can use to have them all entered automatically, even if you've already put in a few manually.

Thanks, I wasn't going to bother but this made it too easy not to.

Yup.  How could I resist?  Now if they could just make a script for finding enough time to play!

Destiny optimized for remote play on Vita

Quote
Destiny launches next Tuesday, but for PS4 owners who have inconvenient friends and family hogging the living room television, you'll also be able to access the game on Vita with optimized remote play controls.

Shown above by Sid Shuman of the PlayStation Blog, the game's control scheme has been changed on the portable device to allow grenade throws and melee attacks by tapping the left and right side of the touch screen, respectively. We'll be sure to take this feature for a test drive from our porcelain thrones.

Seems from the reviews to be exactly what you would expect; a reasonably fun smashem up.

Escapist Magazine review  Video Link

Kotaku Review

Polygon's review.

Nintendo World Report's review.

Nintendo Life's review.


What is the deal with Japanese game franchises doing Dynasty Warriors clones?  First it was Hyrule Warriors and now I see that Dragon Quest is hopping on the bandwagon with Dragon Quest Heroes.

Dynasty Warriors has been around for years so why this interest now?

68  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Teaching kids about on-line safety - I thought I had more time! on: August 29, 2014, 03:28:37 PM
Last night my boys (6 and Cool started talking about playing Minecraft online on the ipads.  I thought they were just talking about a world they created but apparently the neighbor boy had given them the IP of a server.  So I now have to think about what to tell them about playing online - I was expecting to wait a few more years....

Anyway what would you tell kids that age?  Since they are in a game I think they can only chat but I also think they might be naive enough to say just about anything.....

I found this on line  http://www.safekids.com/kids-rules-for-online-safety/  but wondered if others had experience talking to their young ones about the wider world of the Internet.


Thanks,

Blue Vampires With Guns Rejoice, Underworld Is Getting A Total Reboot

Quote
The Underworld movie franchise is getting a reboot. Because vampires doing flips in leather catsuits sell movie tickets, dammit.

THR is reporting that Lakeshore Entertainment is going to reboot the entire Underworld vampire franchise. Probably because they've run out of stories for Kate Beckinsale to roundhouse through while shooting silver bullets in a blue filter. Alas.

The films shall start all over under the pen of Cory Goodman, who wrote the 2011 movie Priest, which felt a lot like an Underworld movie in the amount of action to storyline ratio. No doubt the reboot is an attempt to make money off the Underworld name, but I'm curious if people will want anyone but Beckinsale to take on the role of vampire Selene, as she was pretty bad ass. We shall see.

Notably (and thankfully, imo) it misses the following aspects from every bad boss encounter you surely hate:

Timed battle (bonus points for not having this, plus a few more for not being an invisible timer)
Regular un-avoidable attack that does massive damage unless you do a very specific counter/block/move at the exact moment.  
Resistant against all attacks except your special moves.  


True.

I was going to add that it didn't have the "destroy all X before you can hurt the boss" mechanic but then in the 3rd stage it did where you had to kill the angles guarding the big angle before you could hurt him. 

All in all after beating it I think it wasn't that bad it just feels out of place and unwanted. 

Oh and "video" power sucks so far so I don't even expect to use it much.
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: August 25, 2014, 07:04:07 PM
Rather than dig through this whole thread let me just rant.

I f-ing hate boss battles.  I have been loving the game up to the point where I have to face the Angel conduit.  It has every stupid hallmark of a boss battle - which I hate! 

It doesn't even f*&%ing fit even remotely with the rest of the game play up to that point.  I spent hours running around town climbing things choosing how to defeat enemies and using many different powers but no now I have to f-ing fight in a boxed in area where the safe spots disappear so I have to keep running around, and of course the boss is strong enough that I need to constantly seek out more ammo.  Of course the boss has three stages where he gets different powers or protections so I have to figure that out while jumping around like an idiot over lava.

I can't think of any boss battle cliche they don't cover.  It is maddening and stupid.  Why do developers think they have to include this.  It is like a stupid checklist or something.

Uggg!

Amazon—not Google—reportedly buying Twitch for $1 billion


Quote
Well-sourced site The Information (subscription required) is claiming that Amazon is in "late stage talks" to purchase Twitch.tv, the video game streaming site, for $1 billion.

Three months ago, Variety first reported that Google was set to purchase the site for the same amount, but we've yet to hear anything official from either company. We've been starting to wonder if the Google/Twitch deal would ever become official; and if Twitch is still courting other suitors, it would explain why that deal has yet to happen.

I guess I could care less as long as it stays free and relatively without ads a

Legend of Grimrock still coming for iOS.

Quote
A friend of us and a coder extraordinaire, Juha Pinola has now been working on the iOS version of Legend of Grimrock 1 for some time and the game is shaping up really well. We do not know the release date just yet other than “when it’s done” but we’ll let you know when we know, ok? The game isn’t just a direct port from the PC version of Legend of Grimrock. We have always felt that the game wouldn’t work on touch screens straight out of the box but needed a few custom mechanics to get the benefits of the touch interface.

Captain America: The Winter Solider comes out this week and I am going to buy it.  For some reason I am thinking of buying digital and wondered how common it was.   I think if I do it I will buy from Amazon, not because I love them but because I know I will be able to play it on my iPad, PS4, and computer.  If I bought it from the PSN store or the Apple store I would be locking myself in to a specific device.

Anyone else made the switch to digital?  Do you miss the boxes?
