I find Polygon inconsistent and hypocritical.

Got Trials for PS4.  Think the PC version was delayed a week.

Showing 24th now in the UK
surprised there hasn't been any reviews yet.  although I'm not worried.  this is what, Red Lynx's 7th Trials game?

Maybe I should have been.  Polygon - 6.5 "missing features and bad design choices make it a  significant step backwards after Evolution"

It's getting 8s most everywhere else.   Polygon is also my least trusted out of a plethora of untrusted sources for reviews.

I grabbed it and it's good.  Difficulty curve might be a bit off, and track locations aren't quite as varied as Evolution so far where there's some kind of weird story tying it all together.

Mmm, maybe that title change should have gotten its own thread, as this one is very confusing now.

SIMPLETON!



This simpleton has seen AC/DC multiple times  Tongue

AC/DC was actually my first real concert, I think it was the Blow Up Your Video tour in 88 or Who Made Who in 86.  My dad took me, I was like 13-15.

..the more I think about it, I'm pretty sure I saw both those tours.

So from a GT perspective, is this game a failure?  I don't want to discuss sales numbers whatever they may be.

Not at all. I know you don't want to talk sales numbers, but it's credited for selling at least a million XB1s, and the cheap Titanfall bundles had to have improved XB1 console sales considerably.

Really?  I haven't seen that PR/report, my impression was that EA/MS have been incredibly silent on the sales numbers.  I would have thought if there was a report/PR then it would have got a thread at GAF.

Since you're renting a car, if you like pinball and old arcade games and get any free time, consider a trip to The Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham.  http://www.pinballwizardarcade.com/

PAX East also has a classic arcade, and it's pretty good (and free), but very light on the pinball games.

It's actually kind of amazing how well the 360 hardware has held up over time.

This is why the 'next gen' shouldn't have started for another year at least.

What?  No, it was well overdue.   TF is just not pushing any boundaries on the graphics front, lighting and shadows are pretty basic, also nothing too crazy on the particle or shader side.   It's not a bad looking game, but even the PC version at max settings is far from a graphics showcase.

there are legendaries that are only available in the caches you get after completing all bounties in an act, the chance of getting these is not affected by difficulty.  This is stupid. So the best way to get them is to go through as fast and many times as you can on normal.
Is there a list of which ones?

It's interesting if you check out the most used skills/builds, both Blessed Hammer and Steed Charge are in the top but I haven't seen them used much by our guys.
I use the hammers, as my items/build is designed around being completely surrounded by enemies.    The steed I find kind of useless, and the cooldown is way too long.  I rather use Falling Sword to move around.

somewhat ironic since falling sword has 30 second cooldown to the steed's 25 slywink  (20 with lord commander)

The last rune for the horse is pretty useful, can drag mobs wherever and when combined with the instant condemn you can whip them around and blow them all up.



With Rapid Descent rune you can get FS as low as 10s, though I've been experimenting with the other runes recently.

My Crusader is killing it in Torment 1 with about 200k DPS, but she has collected a bunch of specific items from my other characters
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Forge-1255/hero/43773541

I've rerolled the off stats now, guess mystic changes don't show up in the profile.

I'll change it up if grouped with a bunch of others and take Blind and the shield that makes it 360, as that does a great job keep everyone else alive, but if I'm soloing I want them to hit me.  I've actually got 3 of the Crusader legendary shields now.

The only problem is she can't take down treasure goblins frown

Also, are Blood Shards only an Act V thing?  I started over from the beginning with a Crusader, and haven't seen anything about Blood Shards yet.

You get them in Adventure Mode when you collect bounties.

Do you have to do all the bounties in an Act to get them?  I've done a bounty here and there and have not gotten a shard yet.
  I think they might fall from bosses and maybe elites, but you definitely get them from the horadric stash when you finish all bounties for an act.

Your emotions are making you overreact, which among other things makes you think that the private developer board you're referring to holds even a sliver of importance to this situation. It doesn't.

These things all very much mattered in getting Occulus into a position where they were an attractive purchase, but now they suddenly don't?

If it wasn't for those "nerds" supporting the Kickstarter a bunch of Occulus folks wouldn't be 2 billion dollars richer today.

While I'm no fan of the concept of Facebook acquiring Oculus Rift, I still can't imagine how that would be able to negatively affect the Rift itself. Those of you who are the most upset about this: What is it you think Facebook will do to ruin the Rift for you?
As someone who has been involved in some way on around 10 acquisitions (either acquired or on the integration team of the acquirer) I'm having a hard time thinking of any instance where it turned out good for the actual product in the end.

Today I had the day off and while my plan was to do stuff around the house at lunch I popped on this new Anime show Sword Star Online which appeared over the weekend too. 30 minute shows are perfect for lunch so thought I'd check it out. And then the rest of the day was gone as I binge watched a bunch of episodes. It's a totally geeky show but I was loving it - and if you've played MMOs with any regularity you would probably get a kick out of it too.

How's this compare to Log Horizon?  Which is another another anime about people getting stuck in an MMO world.

I'm not sure. I haven't seen that one.

But still loving Sword ART Online. I popped on an episode before heading to bed and my wife came in to see what I was watching. Next thing you know we've watched four episodes in a row and its Midnight.

One thing I like about Log Horizon is it deals a lot with guild politics, and party group tactics.  It very much is from someone who has played MMOs.

I'm assuming you've all downloaded the latest patch and linked your PSN id up with http://infamouspapertrail.com/ to get extra Karma?

I'm more interested in the missions themselves and maybe if they let us use Paper as a power.  I have no problem earning Karma in game.  Note it's karma and not shards, and there's essentially an infinite supply of karma in game.

Odd then, because I've seen streams of playing with powers in missions out of the correct timeline.

But all searches indicate there's no new game plus, so there's probably a cheat or just odd positioning.

Story missions?  Game opens up post game so you can finish whatever DUP stuff you haven't done with all the powers.  Also maybe you are thinking of the demo build that was used in all the press videos where it seemed they had neon and smoke for the first Seattle mission.

I think I missed the "tutorial text" for this but how low does a district have to go with regards to DUP control before revolt? 50%? All the way to 0%?
As TiLT said, at 30% you can evict them.  The phone icon on your minimap is where you initiate the mission to do so.

While I like Infamous a ton, its LED use is terrible, at least in the start.  It defaults to bright white then changes to blue or red with your Karma, and while I generally haven't
had screen glare issues with the light, here it was actually noticeable as it was so damn bright.  Bring on the dimmer option!

Anyone else find the game hard? I'm dying, a lot. Then again I only completed the first city mission (Queen Anne district) and haven't unlocked anymore powers.
By powers do you just mean smoke, or the subset of smoke powers?  You really need to have the full compliment of skills for a power if you don't and should work towards that.  The other actual powers don't change the difficulty much since you can only have one equipped at a time.

Ya I meant smoke. Until this thread I didn't know you could get more than smoke.

Also, are shards plentiful enough that you can upgrade everything or do you need to be choosy as to which subset of powers you want to max out?

According to Jeff during the Giantbomb quicklook (and spoiler averse they show the third power) you get enough shards to upgrade all of the skills for single alignment in a playthrough.  So all good or all evil.

Third power from the skill tree looks more interesting on the evil side, though the good side has a bit of game play changer element to it.

I'm having a great time with the game so far.  Just unlocked Neon.  Interesting that you can only have one power at a time, I may have read that at some point but I was still thinking you could switch on the fly with a button press.  Here you can still switch but need to find a resource first, so if you are using Smoke and want to use Neon better find a neon sign which are reasonably abundant but you're not going to be pulling off any smoke/neon/whatever combo moves.   I could stare at the effect for draining neon all day.
