Is Counterspy a retail release, or is it more a PSN d/l purchase?  Price point?

PSN, $15 I believe, $12 with plus.

I just hope with the console releases that means 2.1 is finally going to go live.

I played it but I got stuck:

Spoiler for Hiden:
After the baby in the sink version, I got stuck where the radio keeps repeating the story, but then the ghost voice cuts in, says a bunch of numbers, then says to look behind you. I couldn't figure out what to do after that

Spoiler for Hiden:
I believe that's the section where it says "gouge it out" on that one photo with a blue x, you need to hit the X button on the picture to rip the picture.

Some of the stuff is super obtuse, but very Kojima,  for instance when finding the ripped picture pieces
Spoiler for Hiden:
one of the pieces is in the options menu, and you need to go to options and hold down R3 to examine like you do in the hallway"

I said I won't buy it. Then winter sets in and Ill find myself wanting more to do indoors. Then I will regret the purchase. Ghosts I hardly even touched!

There's gonna be plenty of other games this fall, Assassins Creed, Far Cry, Dragon Age, Shadow of Mordor, Lords of the Fallen, The Evil Within, etc.

It's not a teaser that's designed to be completed. You play it until you can't figure out how to keep going, and then stop. The devs didn't expect anyone to complete the teaser within the first week, and people still haven't fully agreed on how you actually solve the game.

I'd say more it was designed to require internet collaboration to finish.  Think an actual video game of an ARG like I Love Bees.

It's also totally worth checking out even just for a bit to get a sense of the the atmosphere etc that they can accomplish, it's a pretty impressive little package, and everyone with a PS4 should load it up and make at least a few loops of the corridor.

I'm sure there was something, but I'm blanking on any that were announced as multiplatform and then changed pre-release.  I have  a foggy memory of there being at least  a case of this but can't recall what the game was at the moment.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamescom 2014 on: August 14, 2014, 04:52:38 PM
It's partially wrong to even blame MS though, they are in a corner and are going to try and make plays.  In some ways the ire should be directed at SE for accepting the proposed deal and not MS.

Now Sony fans know how MS fans felt about the year long Destiny DLC exclusivity.

Microsoft has been playing the DLC timed exclusive game for years.  CoD map packs are always 3 months exclusive to Xbox.

That doesn't make it okay for Sony to do the same thing now, in my opinion.

But notice how Sony didn't pull the "exclusive DLC" card for their Gamescom conference? Maybe they're learning. Microsoft certainly didn't seem to have learned squat, and had another public statement explode in their face.

It was more a comment that Sony fans are well versed in it and it wasn't MS finally reversing the script.

In regards to Tomb Raider, it's important to note that it was announced as a multiplatform title as well.  Bayonetta 2 going Wii U caused some outrage as a multiplat game's sequel going exclusive, but Bayonetta 2 from the start was an exclusive, and also I as I noted above the game wasn't set to be made until Nintendo got behind it.

Spoils

Season 5 was easily the best season of the show's run. Can't imagine having had to wait a week between episodes.

I'm not a BB nuthugger as I think the first two seasons were pretty mediocre. However, when Gus came on the scene things really started picking up.

More spoilsies


Did you know that the Gus character wasn't even part of the original plan?  Tuco was supposed to be the main bad guy for a longer stretch, but the actor had to leave the show because of a conflict with other stuff he was filming.  They invented Gus to be a bad guy as opposite to Tuco's personality as possible, and they liked him so much they kept the character going.

Jesse was supposed to die the first season as well.

I was too scared to keep playing P.T.

It's very creepy.   Engine looks great too.  The puzzles get too obtuse and progress grinds to a halt though.  I suspect that was intentional here though as this is basically a viral game anouncement, and that encourages online colaboration to solve it.  This video has the ending and is from the first person to crack it.

So for those pissed at the Tomb Raider exclusivity deal, why wasn't there the same outrage at Bloodborne being exclusive for Sony?  I bought the Dark Souls games on PC and would have loved to get the next game in the "series" on there as well.

Well there was outrage but that's also a different case for a few reasons.  Tomb Raider was in production for PS4 and PC and MS basically paid to cancel the other versions.
In the case of Bloodborne,  Sony approached From to make another Demon's Souls or a game like that (Demon's Souls originally being a PS3 exclusive).  Sony is funding the initial development as well as co-developing the game, they co-developed Demon's Souls too.  You could always get a Dark Souls 3 too, as that was published by Namco, whereas Sony owns the rights to Demon's Souls.

There are good and bad 3rd party exclusives, I've said this before.  Paid to cancel are the worst.  On the flip side you have things like Bayonetta 2 on Wii U or Dead Rising 3 on XB1, where all indications are the games simply would not have gotten made without the console manufacturer backing them.  And even there DR3 has found it's way to PC eventually.

Even if you have a PS4 as your system there is plenty of stuff coming that's not first party exclusive that is exciting (IMO).  I'll be getting Diablo 3, Far Cry 4 and Shadow of Mordor just for starters.  Probably Destiny, GTAV, AC Unity and quite a few of the indie games.

Certainly - I'm not saying PS4 owners are sitting around with a paperweight. I'll be buying all my multi-platform titles on PS4 with the possible exception of Destiny (if I get it). Only reason I'd go XB1 with that one is because that's where my friends are.

List them, I want to see this several.  I can think of two, three if you count the Halo remaster.

There were six mentioned/shown today, which I think qualifies as several:

Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizons 2, Halo 5, Fable Legends, and Halo Master Chief Collection.

The bolded are note due out this year or this holiday.

Yeah there's no shortage of games.  They are building a pretty diverse library, it's not all shoot shoot bang bang.

For exclusives I thought Rime and WiLD looked great, also Bloodborne of course, which will most likely be amazing.

Also Driveclub and The Order look decent enough for what they are.

For XB1 I think Quantum Break looks really good.  Sunset Overdrive seems like it's trying too hard to me and rubs me wrong.

It's kind of unclear at this point how exclusive it is, I still see a lot of "exclusive holiday 2015" in fact that's the wording Phil just used on stage, so it may be timed and the people saying it's not are wrong.  We'll  have to wait and see what shakes out.

I believe the Tomb Raider deal is timed as they said exclusive for 2015.  That must have cost Microsoft a fair bit as Definitive Edition sold about double on PS4 compared to XB1.
I was worried MS was going to start paying to delay/cancel multiplatform versions.

Quantum Break looks great.

agreed it cost MS a fair bit of money to get timed exclusive

Some reporting it's not timed now.  I guess to some degree it makes sense for SE to not compete with Uncharted directly, but like I said the PS4 version of TR DE sold around double the XB1 version.  Also no PC version...

Quote from: ATB on August 11, 2014, 02:23:35 PM

I went with a battlemage and a wayfarer as my two characters to avoid the cliche have one ranged guy and one melee guy.

However, they're inordinately weak in combat and have very few options spell/skill wise. I found a level 3 NPC and he had a host of more capable spells and such.

Did I just pick weak classes?

You should have found another party member in the town, so the two main characters and two NPC party members.  You'll also need to buy some spell/skill books.

The problem with hybrid classes is you need to spread your stats when really you'll want to focus your mage on int, and not have to worry about con/str.  But keep in mind you're not that gimped as starting classes just set your starting skills stats, you can easily move from Battlemage to pure mage, heck you could make him a thief if you want if start setting skill points and stats early enough.  Late game there is a full respec available as well.

I've spent about 5 hours in this game and I'm pretty sure it's not for me.

I am very very VERY bored at this point and the first quest is less than interesting as far as I'm concerned. Not really interested in running from building to building and searching every crate and basket for obscure clues about a quest I care very little about.

There's not enough combat and I'm finding the dialogue between party members confusing especially when i make them disagree and we have to do the RPS.

Sooo.  Unless there's a huge uptick in combat (lots of the fights are too hard too at this point) I guess I'm still looking for that game to tide me over until Divinity.


There is a ton of combat in the game.  Get the quests from the head of the town guard and exit the city to the east.

Almost wish they had kept the bad voice over so I could fight through a campy moon wizard MST3000 voice over.

I only played the beta but I thought they did...keep the bad voice over.  I've never seen dinklage in anything (and I had to be told it was his voice), but he's terrible in Destiny.
He's actually a fantastic actor.  He's great on Game of Thrones, but also in movies like The Station Agent.

In regards to the VO, in the beta they cut some lines from the Alpha and added a filter to make him sound more synthetic that wasn't present in the Alpha.

Gamora.  I honestly didn't think Saldana could pull it off, but she did.  

Nebula.  I love Karen Gillan as much as any red blooded male.  But for some reason her character was never terribly believable for me.  


For me it was the inverse.  I was kind of expecting Karen to not fit but thought she was great, while Zoe fell flat.
