Alright, got the Mark of Conqueror and Mark of the Strong in the Nioh beta. Very much looking forward to the full release, this is like a mashup of Demon's Souls and Ninja Gaiden. There's a lot of depth to the combat here too once you start unlocking weapon skills.

I keep feeling like I should like these guys more than I do.  All the individual pieces are there, but it just never comes together to be something I really enjoy.  Weird.



I'm like that with Youth Code. Recorded I find them just kind of there, and I really didn't enjoy them live when they opened for FLA and Skinny Puppy. But they seem like a band I *should* like.

I had this on wishlist and then removed it. Certainly the updates EngineNo9 described sound really promising. Maybe some day it's something I'll look into.

I recently decided that even though I've enjoyed some Difficult games like Hyper Light Drifter, for the most part, I'm not one of the Dark Souls Crowd. I don't really like to have my face rubbed in a game's difficulty level like a puppy's face in his poop. I returned a side-scroller Salt & Sanctuary on Steam a while back because literally I couldn't get past the first boss 10 minutes into the game.

I don't know if Necropolis is like that. I just am now actively staying away from Steam games tagged as Difficult. Decided to embrace my inner wimpness.  icon_smile

I thought Hyper Light Drifter was more difficult than the Souls games or Salt & Sanctuary, especially at launch where it had a bunch of finicky issues with the small window on invulnerability frames, enemy combo recovery speeds, or the length of time it took to use a healing item. Maybe you played it after the various balance patches, I don't know how much easier those ended up making it.

Fuck that shit about PS4 getting a 'timed exclusive'. It's CLEARLY that, and not the bullshit stated by the founder:

Quote
In a subsequent tweet, he provided a bit of explanation as to why the date changed. He wrote, "We think a global release is best for everyone on PC. Retail forces us to be staggered on PS4."

Sorry, but a lot of people buy digital nowadays (especially PC). Don't tout this 'global release' bullcrap in this day and age. Also, (pissed off) PC purchaser here.

It's 3 days, you're out of your mind. If it was 3 months you might be correct or have a reason to be pissed off, as it is you're coming off as the typical entitled PC asshole.

If you enjoy ultra-gory horror comedy and have even a passing interest in metal, be sure to check out Deathgasm. It's a Shaun of the Dead'ish style spoof where a group of New Zealand metalheads play a black metal song that summons the devil, and carnage - lots and lots lots of carnage - ensues. It's alternately charming, hilarious, and utterly grotesque.

Probably helped that I could name every song on the soundtrack, but I'm guessing that isn't a prerequisite for enjoying it.

Did you watch Todd and the Book of Pure Evil?

Waiting on reviews for Necropolis: A Diabolical Dungeon Delve.  I'm a fan of Harebrained Studios and typically these type of games don't appeal to me but I like the art style and the humor of the game.

Art style and concept look really good, just wondering if it will be too frustrating for me.  I don't mind perma-death as long as some progress is made each run, and it sounds like that's the case in the description.  But hard to say if that will be how it actually plays out.

Isn't this basically trying to be a roguelike Souls game?

Where are you, ATB? You've been delinquent in your posting duties! Forums seem especially dead these days and I more than admit to being a part of the problem. I'm sure there's a more recent thread than this but I couldn't find it. What did surprise me is that this thread was made back in 2006! Have the troubles really been going on for as long as all that? I thought 2006 was the glory days. I figured that things took a downturn in the past couple of years. I'm still around but I don't post as much as I used to on any forum but I do spend most of my browsing time on the QT3 and Broken Forum forums and a little bit but not too much on OO.  What's everyone else doing these days?

I played about an hour of it yesterday.  It definitely feels like Limbo to me.  It is well made but I havenít been blown away yet.  Still want to play more though.

I haven't picked it up yet, but everything I've heard has said that the first half is very Limbo-esque and then there are a lot of revelations in the second half.  Still not sure if it's for me, but I'd like to try it at some point.

I'd say it's far more than half that is Limbo-esque. It has a hell of a final act though, but that's maybe 30 minutes of the game. Overall it was quite good but at the same time I think reviewers have over rated it.

I haven't purchased anything on the Steam sale. Thus far it's just a complete meh.

Same here.  There's a few I was interested in, but they're all still to expensive (over $20).

I looked at everything, then looked twice and also did the whole "discovery queue" to see if there was anything interesting that steam had hidden away.  Then I bought Dying Light for a replay on PC and haven't looked back.  I'm on my last week at this job and don't have anything immediately lined up, so that pretty much ends my "backlog growing" stage.  I anticipate I might get time for that hopeless project:  backlog clearing while looking for a new position and cancelling all my medical appointments to the chagrin of my doctors while getting some useful advice from the company representative, such as changing my resume's font and adding some new tech buzzwords in an attempt to sound current.  I will be looking at reviews for the Spiders game and telling my son why we aren't immediately getting another Lego game.  (he still hasn't finished the last few)

Thank you E9.  We took a small break in no-net land and by the time we returned last night, I was too weary to even flip the pc on.

Wow, what a season finale!  So much happened and I love how pretty much everyone got some major plot action.

Spoiler for Hiden:
My favorite scene was Arya's.  Totally caught me off guard, absolutely loved it.  Still I hope they have more planned for her that will make a greater impact to the finale.  Will she be the one who ultimately kills Cersei?

Speaking of which, loved loved loved everything about Cersei in this episode.  She deserves an Emmy.  That dress was freaking fantastic but every expression on her face was awesome, from the thrill of vengeance to the knowing, bitter acceptance of losing her last child, to finally claiming her spot as Queen of Thrones.  Awesome.  I was sad to lose Margeary in such an unceremonious way, but what are ya gonna do?  Also wished she had got to torture Jonathan Pryce's smarmy ass instead of the nun, but beggars can't be choosers.  SHAME!!!  SHAME!!!

Dany + Tyrion moment, brought a tear to my eye when he bows at the end.

All teh shipz, oh my!  With dragon entourage to boot.

Jon Snow heritage reveal.  Honestly it was way too confusing and complicated for me and I had to read the explanations so I wonder how much of an impact it will have for the audience at large.  I suspect it will get more play next season when Dany meets Jon.  Hopefully Bran will spill the beans before they get their incest on.

Last but not least.  Someone please fix Bran's freaking legs.  That poor girl can't be expected to drag his huge ass around the rest of the show!  Thanks for the horse, Uncle Benjen!!  NOT!

Bran spilling the beans will just make it more likely, they were a house known for inbreeding.

I'm curious about Mighty No. 9, but I don't know if I'm curious enough to buy it.  If the reviews are stellar, that could change.


And stellar they are not.  Sheesh.  Reviews are hovering in the 50% range.

Wow.  That is both amazing and shocking given how anticipated this game has been.  Graphics that are retro, but not up to the last game in the MM series, and worst of all, a gameplay mechanic that is both imprecise and used to justify some tricky jumps. 

I find it odd that there are so many complaints about the graphics and art style.  I thought they looked pretty good from the videos I've seen; exactly what I would expect.
I think they are pretty terrible. Also consider this was the concept art in the kickstarter which was much better.

Hololens is too far off with current field of view issues and price. More likely they are partnering with Facebook to make Occulus Rift compatible with the Scorpio.

I have no idea what Twitter thinks, or who you are following, but both the Giant Bomb and GameSpot streams were clearly saying that the Sony conference felt weird, empty and disappointing.

As far as the montage clips, at least in the [email protected] one they showed enough of the game to know what it was, along with the name of the game and the developer so I knew what it all was. 

That montage at the end of Sony's was largely a summary of their showing with a few other games thrown in there getting hardly a second of air time.  It felt like a real lost chance to focus on those smaller games, or unknown games.

Sony ended on a hohum note compared to MS with Scorpio.  If Sony ended with Horizon the GB guys would all be buzzing on what a great conference it was. Watching all their Talk Over the Conferences I was a bit surprised to find them so negative post Sony's where as during the conference they were probably the most positive. 

I mean Days Gone didn't wow but Scalebound and FFXV both had actual poor showings at the MS conference.

It seems to me that unless you are going the VR route, or really really really want upgraded resolution (4K rumored), staying with the current PS4 is fine.   Im still on the fence for VR, as I haven't seen games/apps that make it a must yet.   Still, looks like the consoles are embracing it.   

We'll have to see what the reality of the games is for different platforms. 

Even without a 4K TV, if you can get full 1080p resolution at 60fps with higher resolution textures and better post processing on the NEO I would be happy with that over a regular PS4 being slightly downscaled from event the current PC build.

I'm still finding this whole situation offensive.

Meanwhile, the PS4 is still facing a storage issue that needs to be fixed last year.

While they should upgrade the base store model, the PS4 storage is easily upgradeable at a low cost.

I finished the game up, just shy of 17 hours but only 52 treasures, and that was with scouring the areas pretty well. I doubt I will do a platinum try especially since there are those 70% accuracy and 6 hour speed run trophies.

As of right now cheats don't seem to impact trophies, so it's not as hard as it might seem. So you can turn on slow motion aiming, and infinite RPGs. The only thing I'm fairly certain you can't use is the autoaim stuff.

Quote from: TiLT on May 16, 2016, 12:23:05 PM

Man, I'm getting a bit annoyed with the combat in this game. It's just bloody hard compared to the other games in the series, and each combat encounter is incredibly unfair if you can't stealth it. Enemies pop up from all around you, making cover worthless. Grenades are thrown in your direction so often that by the time you've evaded one, another is already on its way. Enemies have the height advantage and cover, and they don't all spawn at the start of an encounter, instead spawning as specific enemies are taken down, or as you reach specific places in the combat arena. I just got through a section that made me want to scream in frustration, where you're stuck on an "island" with no cover while enemies are all around you with all kinds of weapons (including rocket launchers). If you've already played the section (and died multiple times, most likely), you can rush through a bunch of jumping puzzles to reach an area where there is cover, only there are enemies all around you even there, and your cover will be demolished in seconds while enemies rush your position. You can try to take out some enemies while hanging from ledges, only the game doesn't give you enough ammo (or the opportunity to pick up any without being shot to death) to do it. No grenades either. It took me about 10 tries to get through this part, and I didn't enjoy it in the slightest.

It goes for combat in general here. Most times when an encounter can be stealthed and I'm caught, I get shot to pieces before I even have a chance to get my bearings and fight back. If it wasn't for the stealth, I'd have a really hard time getting through this game, and this is on the normal difficulty level! The earlier games were a cakewalk compared to this.

The only fight that struck me as a bit unbalanced was near the end of the game in the
Spoiler for Hiden:
ship graveyard.
The game this time around encourages more movement to reestablish stealth or find better cover. Still I feel U3 was far worse in regards to getting killed by flanking enemies from nowhere.

Also remember you can use swimming to break LOS and lose the enemies, this helps in a couple of the encounters which take place around water.

What I would say is the problem of the game design is that they space out the big combat scenarios more than I think in the past games which can lead to not really becoming familiar with flow of the combat loop. I think the game might have been better served by more frequent but smaller combat sections. The same final enemy total, just spread out more across the game.

The video below shows what I mean:

The left column are my current specs. The red #s to the right indicate what my base stats were I assume. Is there a limit to how much I can add? Are they taken from other stats in order to increase? When I watch the video I don't see the #s being drawn down from an available pool.

Can I simply add the required points to strength only?

Apologies if it seems trivial I am simply stuck.



You don't magically get more stat points, they have to come from somewhere.  The red stats are the base stats you started the game with, when you respec it refunds all points from leveling and you need to reallocate them all as you see fit. The pool is the top left, notice the White level number -> Red level number, you get to allocate stats until the red number equals the white number.

I've watched videos but no one really explains what/how it works just how to get to Rosaria.
Right now I am at 31STR and I'd like to get to 40STR - if I add the additional 9 points into STR does that mean that they are taken away from other attributes?
I'm lost.


Umm, yeah? I mean how else would a respec work? Rosaria basically resets you to base stats and you get to reallocate all points.
