1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What's your biggest gaming disappointment/sleeper hit of 2014? on: November 22, 2014, 02:15:07 PM
The funniest part about the loot in Destiny is when you look back at that early video where they talk about showing off your new gun and your friends will want to know how you got it and every player will have a story.   And then in the end every players story is "I grinded a lot and purchased it."

Hah I did the boat mission on the first try entirely in first person,  that was nuts with Franklin blocking the windshield.

Mordor and Wolfenstein are the biggest surprises so far.

Watchdogs easily the biggest disappointment.

I loaded up Far Cry yesterday instead, but when I start, it's going to be hard to choose how to start.  Thinking of going Elf ranger, as trite as that sounds. 

I went Archer, and regret it a little, think I may enjoy dual wield more, fortunately you can swap to different characters in your party and just play them when the mood strikes you.  Part of the regret comes from the games starting party has an archer in it, and one of the very first recruitable characters you can stumble across seems meant to be an archer as well (but even though she's a bow master in her cut scenes I'm skilling her dual wield)

It's like the only view option not on the same settings tab as the rest oddly.  I forget which tab it's under, but look for independent vehicle camera or something like that.  It's not under the controls tab.

I actually prefer the first person driving, though for some tasks you do need more situational awareness.  Fortunately you can switch between modes quite easily.

Played a bit this morning and I think I should have went PC instead of XB1..  Noticeable stutters at times, but my main issue is controls.  I probably would have preferred PC instead, but I loathe to install Origin.  

Anyway, pretty good so far I missed a conversation with Solas as we were traveling he asked me about living as a Dalish and my conversation tree appeared and it was greyed out and I couldn't select an answer.  Eventually he remarked something like "Well, be silent then"  Has anyone run into this?

most people over at QT3 on PC are switching to using a controller because they all dislike the mouse/keyboard controls.

GTA V
and
Dragon Age: Inquisition

both on PS4.

I'll grab FC4 eventually too most likely, but between those two games I should be set for good long while.

I'm now even more annoyed with myself for playing through the DA games of so many different platforms.  Played through DAO once on 360 and once on PC, DA 2 once on PC and once on PS3, and now I'll be playing DAI on PS4.  Nothing from my characters is going to carry over.  frown

Very excited for this one though (great review, btw). 

Why would you think that?  The game has no real save import, and you can setup all your history at https://dragonagekeep.com/en_US/

Still having a blast, for some reason it reminds me quite a bit of the original game. 

Man you could not unsell the game to me any quicker than with that line.  I took a gamble with II and really liked it, as I did Black Flag as well, but that first game, there's a lot I hate about it.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Is the master really dead? It looked like she ported out right as the doctor was about to shoot. The effect of her "gun" was always to burn up the victim, but the effect on her was the blue glow she had previously when teleporting.

I also didn't understand why Clara was important in the plan and why the master needed to choose her.

Here's Moffat on it

Spoiler for Hiden:
“I always rather enjoyed how they handled this problem when the wonderful Anthony Ainley was playing the part in the 80s,” said The Moff on Doctor Who Extra.

“He would get killed, definitively, at the end of every encounter with Peter Davison and Colin Baker. And then he’d turn up at the start of the next Master story with roughly this explanation: ‘I escaped!’ Suits me, I’m fine with that!”

“Supervillains don’t die, do they?” he added. “I wouldn’t trust anything about that character’s ability to lie down and stop breathing.”

I've been watching this and at least in the first three episodes that are available the animation quality is stunning. Especially during the dance scene. I hope the series didn't blow their whole budget already.

Production has taken a small dip over the past couple of episodes.  Show is still great though, but there was no way the animation quality could hold for an entire series, it was movie quality at points.

From the IGN stream it sounds like there are a lot of options to it too.  So for instance you can set it to be in first person and have it drop to third whenever you go into cover like Rainbow Six if you want.   Also supposed to support left stick for sprint too.

Here's a hint they don't care that you have experience.

If that was the case then they wouldn't have asked about it on the original Beta signup form.

Xur is by the Crucible vendors this week and is offering:

The Armamentarium Disc +136
Lucky Raspberry Int +140
Voidfang Vestments Str +128
Patience and Time
Helm Engram

He also reportedly has some kind of Halloween event item for sale if you talk to him while wearing the pumpkin on your head.
Bought and used the Xur item and it doesn't seem to do anything that I noticed.

Looking closer, there are actually two new strikes being added, but one is going to be a Playstation exclusive until the year two-thousand-and-everyone-is-done-playing-this.

Isn't one of the strikes already timed on PS4 too.   Has that made it to XB1 yet? I believe it was Dust Palace (one of my favorite strikes too.)

For 20 bucks, expansion really needs to add a new location.   If not another planet, another section of Earth at least, it doesn't even need to be as big as the existing locations.

Nano Assault Neo-X is also this week on PS4.

The Kotaku review, though giving it a Yes, was pretty scathing of the humor/style of the game and seems to mesh with what I've seen from the previews and people playing on Youtube.  All I can think of is

Be curious as to what folks around here think in regards to that aspect of the game.

I am replaying the original in hopes of finally beating it. I always get stuck on level 5 trying to follow the path of those trapdoors that close and open in a pattern. I have no rhythm, so those type of puzzles always get me.

So far, these haven't shown up much, and where present they just present damage to the party and not having to start over.

Briana can do that, she did before all this happened. I am not sure a Twitter hashtag and some gaming forums really amounts to that much and are worth the time.

I feel like there's some misunderstanding here.  The hashtag is used by the harassers, in part as a way to organize and call out targets.

It's a terrible thing. A huge number of people were trolled and continue to be trolled. The threats are embarrassing, the advertising bans are embarrassing, the ethics conversation is embarrassing. Anyone who actually understands how this started and what it's become should rightfully think that both sides, the 4chan trolls and the hashtaggers who continue to think this is a real issue, are a bunch of tools.
  I think you are misusing both sides there, as the trolls and hashtaggers are on the same side.

Not exactly. The trolls started the whole thing. The overwhelming majority of people using the hashtag are the ones who were fooled by the trolls into thinking it was a real thing. That includes #gamergate and the #notyourshield tag which got a lot of use as well.

They are still essentially allied though and are on the same side, the other side would be the so called SJWs, along with female game developers and journalists.
