1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (3/31) on: March 30, 2015, 12:00:08 PM
Axiom Verge looks tempting but I'll probably be playing Bloodborne for a bit longer.  Already planning on making an Arcane focused character once I beat it with this strength one.

I played for maybe a couple hours last night and so far I'm not super enthused about it.  There's nothing wrong with it, but I wasn't prepared to feel bored by this as if I had just picked up Dark Souls 2 again or something. 

I already played Dark Souls 2 as a "roll and dodge" character, barely using shields and never just sitting and blocking, so this doesn't feel super different in that way (and in fact feels worse at first blush, since it seems harder/impossible to dodge roll forward to get behind enemies than I remember). 

I'll probably have to give it more time to get deeper in and a better handle on the changes and additions, but right now it isn't giving me much motivation to play it over something else which is surprising.

Also, for a lot of guys generally you're better of side stepping.  With the removal of the simple quick backstab getting behind them isn't generally as worthwhile.  Gun parry is very strong too.   
The game, IMO, is also way better than DS2 was.  The lore, world, and monster design are far more interesting.  Combat is a lot tighter, hitboxes are pretty dead on unlike in DS2 where they were kind of wonky.  Hitboxes were a big complaint about DS2.

5 bosses down, plus an additional one in the Chalice Dungeon.   Some weird cool shit starts going down, this game is really great.

Still stuck on the first two bosses, I think my locking the camera on the bridge boss caused me to die due to poor camera positioning.  I'm in the process of farming up blood vials and echos to try again, not sure what level I'm at now but still can't upgrade weapons which I figure is locked until I get past at least one of these two.  Father G seemed doable but I ran out of vials and he moves so fast, got him down to half on first try.  Maybe we need to come up with a MP password for GT'ers if we are playing at the same time and want to co-op.  I put forth Gtrend as an option for the password.

Nevermind misread at first.

You need an item before you can upgrade weapons.  Cleric Beast I think is easier to tackle first, what was your starting weapon?


I started with the Hunter Axe and found a Saw Spear but I don't like it too much, low dmg.  I think I need to buy lots of molotov's and upgrade my endurance so I can swing and dodge a bit more.  One thing I might change is to not use the two hand version of the axe so much, uses lots of endurance but then again I don't like having to get so close to the beast to hit it with the one hand version.

Use the axe one handed.  You should be able to trade some blows with him and come out ahead with regain.

Father G gave me some trouble in his 3rd phase, mostly that if he hit me once I was pretty much dead.  The first 2 phases I never really had a problem with.  BSB was a similar deal, and I beat my head against him for over an hour before going exploring and eventually finding some armor with resists that allowed me to take him out.   So far you seem always able to go in at least two directions and choose from 2 different bosses at a time.  Before I take on my fourth boss though I'm off to farm so I can buy this sweet new trick weapon I just unlocked at the store for 20k.

I beat the first boss this morning after about 6 tries and some grinding. I must say I am loving this game.

Hint: make sure you equip your consumables and then cycle through them with down on the d pad. It makes using them much easier.
Also, in addition to your equipped items, they added a quick item access menu as well (right click on the touchpad) which is useful for things you use often but not in combat, like the notebook, or hand lantern.

I'm still waiting for Teggy to tell us what his mistake was!?  Tongue

I'm guessing you haven't played it.  He had been playing with no weapons and hadn't picked a set of starting weapons up from the hub.

Strangely he isn't the only person I've seen on forums who made that mistake.

Yeah, basically if I had walked a few steps forward instead of clicking on the shrine I would have found some weapons. I know the game is supposed to be hard, but it wouldn't hurt for them to put in a basic tutorial section. Even the guide doesn't tell you what the stats mean, I had to look that up online.

Well that area is sort of the tutorial, as it's loaded with messengers telling you how to do things on  the ground.   As to the stats, hit R3 on the stats screen and you can got to each and see what it does roughly, this is a big upgrade from some of the earlier Souls games where you couldn't do even that.

Hmm, too bad.  Doesn't even sound like they've solved the issue if they're just seeking ways to improve it, so it may not even happen.

Although it seems like it may be headed to PC at some point, and that shouldn't have the same issues.

I don't buy it.  That would make it the first Sony Studio Japan game to ever do so wouldn't it?  This game is a collaboration of From and Studio Japan.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Heroes of the Storm on: March 23, 2015, 03:10:10 PM
Still only in Quickmatch.  I appreciate the just pick the champion you want to play and go, and blind pick/draft can be contentious, but the result is the lack of any thought going into team comp or champion synergy.  Maybe solo Hero League will have that more once it unlocks.

Also, from playing against him a few times, Illidan seems a bit broken.  I'll have to see what's really going on when he's free to play.

Valla seems pretty good, and I get her because of Reaper of Souls.  Also used gold to get Muradin as I liked him as a brawler and did well with him and he's super cheap.

Um, I don't know, several years ago.  Maybe 2009 or so.  It might have been David Tennant, though I don't pay much attention to the newer doctors. 

One episode I remember was something about a little girl drawing monsters and the monsters came to life or something, and it looked bad and was generally wooden over acting.  That sort of thing was funny when it was from the 70's or 80's, but just seemed sad in modern day.  I tried a couple others after that but nothing stuck and it seemed to be not what I was looking for so I chalked it up to the usual nerdery over hype. 

It was probably no worse than any SyFy show or anything, I just really tend to hate "low" budget modern TV sci fi.  Even the best of it frequently has to be looked at in rose colored glasses in my opinion.

That episode is generally regarded as one of the worst episodes of new Who.  The script for that one was also a replacement for another episode that never got finished.  So you kind of picked a banger to start with.

Watch Blink, Dalek, The Empty Child/Doctor Dances, Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, The Doctor's Wife, Vincent and the Doctor.

I think I'm firmly in the "wait for reviews" camp, but if they're good I'll jump on it next week.  I enjoyed Dark Souls 2 for the most part, but I never played Demon Souls or Dark Souls 1. 

Man you played arguably the worst one. Demon's has the most memorable areas, and the first Dark has the most cohesive interconnected world.  DS2 is good but the world and level design were a bit weaker than the first one, the combat had some issues as well with some weird hit boxes.

Been trying to find a weapons and stratagem list for Helldivers. This one doesn't reflect the DLC but may still be useful:
http://www.gamerevolution.com/faq/helldivers/weapon-guide-109891
http://www.gamerevolution.com/faq/helldivers/stratagem-guide-109893

fwiw, my current favorite loadout (I don't tend to equip Exosuit as much as I was, because I really dig the backpack drones in the DLC):

Main weapon:
-SMG-45 Defender submachine gun
*Upgrades: Ammo (Mini-Stun and Armor-Piercing)

Stratagems:
-[DLC] Guard Dog backpack drone (SMG-equipped, auto-targeting, low-flying drone)
-Air Dropped Anti-Tank Mines (fully upgraded anti-personnel mines; think you get 10 drops per stratagem)
-Turrets (3 per mission, per stratagem; I don't like the Railgun Turret usually because one friendly fire hit will take out most Helldivers with one shot; the regular turret might give you a chance  icon_smile)
-Ammo (unless teammates are bringing tons of it or backpack support stuff)

*I don't make much use of the Offense Stratagems because it seems to work better for me to use "drop and forget" or "fire and forget stuff." Targeting a specific position can be tough because some enemies are so fast, though for sure they're great on fixed mission objectives (AA guns, alien bug nests etc.).

*The mines are dangerous in groups because they don't "friend or foe" distinguish if stepped on. I still like them even if I make some stupid placement mistakes sometimes.  icon_smile

Static Field, Napalm and Thunderers Barrage all work well for zone control.  They last a long time and are on cooldown so you can use them as much as you want.   Static Field and Napalm have really low cooldowns maxed, and with the Stratagem perk you can pretty much call them down soon as they expire, if not slightly before.

Pretty much why I put it down to wait for a patch.  Just seems too risky to play in its current state.  Some people have gotten through it with no issues, but when you hit a bug in this game they are absolutely game breaking and seem like they can cost hours or more of progress.

Considering Plus as a new Vita owner, though it'd seem to have more value if I was also a PS3/4 owner.

Is the free game only free for that one month that it's promoted as such?

Once you download it you have free access to it as long as you are a subscriber, but you must initially get it during the free month.  Even if you let your account lapse and then resubscribe you get access back to anything you've "purchased" before.  In that way it makes sense to go to the online store and also grab the PS3/4 games each month in case you ever get one.

Holy crap. I was 9.5 hours in, around 70% completion I think, and I went through a door that required 4 keys and then killed a bird and then saved my game. I realized I was pretty sure I needed that bird to proceed but it wouldn't respawn. Then I noticed it still showed 4 keys in my inventory. I quit out of the game hoping it would resolve itself, but when I logged back in the save it had was from only 4.5 hours played. I just feel dejected now and don't want to play the game.

Yeah, hearing lots of stories of game breaking bugs.  I ran into the one I mentioned earlier myself, apparently there's a very common "water glitch" as well.  I think I'm just going to shelve it until the first patch hits.  I got Helldivers and the PS+ games like Valiant Hearts to play anyway.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ori and the Blind Forest - a platformer made around the world on: March 12, 2015, 09:11:27 PM
Grabbed it on the PC and I'm already super aggravated with it.  Think I've hit a game breaking bug at the 15 minute mark, need to push/pull a block and the block just becomes unmovable halfway to where I need it to go and Ori breaks grip and wont regrab it no matter how many times I hit right trigger...

And it was early enough that I restarted just to see and my game in save slot 2 works fine and I was able to pull the block to where I needed it to go.  Load save 1 back up, still can't pull the block all the way.  Makes me worried about playing the game further.

So one Helldivers squadmate yesterday had the jumpjet powerpack. Helluva fun to watch, not sure how useful it is other than maybe emergency getaways.  icon_smile

It's great for the getaway and lets you jump over small obstacles.   It also proves very handy in the snow maps or swamps as a way of just generally getting around when your movement speed is otherwise impacted by the environment.

Yes, you get all 3 versions digitally when you buy it, and they intended cross play in multi IIRC.  Simultaneously, even.


Have you had better luck since the other night?
That's the only trouble I've had joining a particular person (sometimes have trouble joining randoms, I think the browser shows ghost matches sometimes)..  There was a patch that night, maybe some lingering wierdness.
We need a few more troopers.  I can only kill forge in so many different ways; a full squad would really give me a lot more flexibility.

Shooting the rocket at our feet after I quick loaded it for you was a nice new twist though...


This easily the best co-op game I've played in a long time.

I really like this.  Had some good games with Rogue and RuperT.  There's some definite benefits to having a diverse makeup of weapons with your squad.   The SMG gets a mild stun effect that comes in super handy for slowing the swarms and it's also a one handed weapon so you can still use it while carrying a blackbox.

I believe it is always online due to the meta game, though I may be mistaken.   You can play it solo, though to get the most out of it you will want to play co-op.  Local and online are both supported for co-op.
