GiantBomb review is up, for anyone interested.
Polygon has theirs up now

This is starting to pull lower scores than Watch Dogs.

I'm enjoying it a million times more than Watch Dogs.

Same, I abandoned Watch Dogs at maybe the 30% mark.  Already level 20 in this and finished the story, which absolutely is a pile of nonsense but not in a way that is offensive to the player like Watch Dogs was.

If you're a Sunsinger Warlock I could see grenade/melee being better in PVP.

Infamous is not a 'shooter'.

Yes it is. It's more forgiving than most shooters, but it's still a shooter.

The combat is even fairly close to Destiny, shoot, throw grenade, engage melee, retreat to cover while shields regenerate, repeat.

I meant it's not an FPS. My bayd.

Hmm. Is infamous 2S 1st person?  Or is it like Gears? 3PS but with FPS aiming?  Because an FPS is muuuuuch different than a 3PS even if that's true.

Unless you mean the act of launching a projectile of any kind is ritt's achilles heel. slywink

It's a 3rd person shooter in an open world with strong traversal mechanics.  Saint's Row 4 is probably not that far off mechanically if you've played that.

I was thinking that maybe I simply cannot play FPS, but then I remembered the one time I was successful - that was Hellgate London.  I had no trouble in that game, so what I'm saying is it's not 100% me lol.

Don't charge in to groups of enemies and run away when your health gets low.  At least early on, enemies won't chase you.  There's plenty of cover, so just take out some enemies, run and hide and recharge, then head back in.  Also, melee attacks are very powerful.  They'll take out most enemies in one hit and stagger the rest so you can finish them off with a shotgun blast.

I think Ritt's bigger problem is he's just not comfortable with shooter controls with a controller.  As I recall he had a lot of trouble with Infamous as well.

Infamous is not a 'shooter'. Maybe Ritt is just uncomfortable with gaming in general.

Infamous absolutely is a shooter, have you played it specifically Second  Son?  Left trigger aim, right trigger shoot.  It's 3rd person and there are melee attacks but to argue it's not a shooter is like arguing Gears of War isn't either.

I'm level 8 now, and just started with the Moon. Things got stupid there in the gameplay department. Enemies on hoverbikes are suddenly coming after you, and you can barely fight back since your regular weapons don't do any worthwhile damage to them and your own hoverbike doesn't even have any weapons. It forces you to run around looking for a spare bike, which tends to trigger more enemies that you have to fight off in the middle of all this. Annoying, to say the least.

You can snipe them right off the bike, their health is separate from the bike.

According to veteran D3 players, the wizard class is considered bottom tier along with the monk before patch 2.1, though this kind of ranking doesn't mean much until the higher Torment levels apparently.

I myself haven't got much to compare with yet as I tend to stick with one class. I've got my wizard on PS4, and monk on PC. It's so typical of me to choose the worst ranked classes/characters in games. Tongue

Wizards once upon a time were the most powerful class by far. I wonder when that changed, at one point if you weren't playing a wizard you'd get kicked out of pub games.

There are more factors than sheet DPS.  My Crusader's sheet DPS is only ~450k.  She can do T6 runs but for speed sticks to T5.  Her primary attack crits for 10M and her secondary crits for 35M and she can use it essentially nonstop.

I don't think I send out nemeses very often as I tend to stay alive at this level. Playing at Torment at paragon level 63 now, and just found the Ring of Royal Grandeur, which from what I can tell is the most sought-after item in the game. Pretty glad to get that out of the way as getting it requires grinding Act 1 bounties over and over again. Managed to push my DPS over 500k too, and I'm not sure what I can do to bring it higher at the moment. I believe wizard is a little bit restricted in this regard before patch 2.1.

You're still going to want a level 70 version of that ring as the stats will be much better.

As mentioned in the Destiny thread, upgraded my PS4 to a 2TB drive.  The process is very easy, though I do wish there was a "copy all saves for all games" option in the storage management menus.  The hardest part of the process was getting my new drive out of its enclosure as I had purchased an external drive to cannibalize as it was on sale for pretty cheap. 

The other advantage to grabbing the external drive is I should be able to put the enclosure back together with the old PS4 500GB drive and get an external drive in the process too, so that helps offset the already small cost to upgrade.

Where did you get a 2TB drive for $90? That's dirt cheap!

Just off Amazon, it's not a SSD or anything.  Also just 5400 RPM, though that is what comes default in the PS4, suppose I could have went for 7200.

This one, which you have to remove from the enclosure.  If you note the Amazon reviews some talk about using it for their PS4.

I've become so spoiled with not swapping disks that it more than makes up for lack of resale for me.  I also realized just how little I would play most steam titles if there was a physical swap needed.

Having 2 games on disk and the rest digital showed me that simply because it took more effort, i only played the digital and the game in the drive.  silly, but true.

I'm upgrading my PS4 to a 2TB drive this weekend just so I can keep more games on drive.  Drives are cheap too, only set me back 90 bucks.

I'm liking Akami ga Kill (Crunchyroll) a lot.  Sort of a bad guy of the week show but with a good pace and an overarching plot that is moving forwards.   Soul I think you would like this one based on the shows you listed before.   Fantasy world with a corrupt government and a group of assassins with legendary magic items trying to overthrow them.  It can be pretty brutal at times.  Show has already had at least two "oh shit" moments.

There's no such thing in this game. All enemies scale to your level, which means you're free to do any content you want in the game at any time. Heck, if you want to, you could start Adventure Mode and go directly to Diablo himself at level 1.

Yeah you can't really be overleveled you can be over geared though.

For twinking, a high level red or yellow gem slotted in your weapon can make the first 40-50 levels a cakewalk.

Looks like this movie has already left one of the two multiplexes that are convenient for us. Tuesday is its last day at the other one. I hope to be able to see it next Tuesday before it's gone.

It's still the seconds highest grossing movie out right now, doesn't really make sense to pull it.

I'm guessing most places are turning over for Labor Day weekend. It will still be showing through next weekend in some more distant theaters. Realistically, though, those aren't convenient so we won't see it if we don't go by Tuesday. Wife will be home that day so it should be doable. On the plus side ticket prices have fallen to $7.50 so we'll get out of it for $20 with popcorn.

Back when I used to go to movies regularly they stayed in theaters for months. Nowadays even the top movies seldom run for more than 4-6 weeks. Maybe Hollywood is just turning out too much product.

Still doesn't make any sense to pull the top grossing movie from your theater.  I suppose it might not be performing locally though.

Madden is getting better reviews this year.  If I didn't have so much to play already I'd get it.  I'm considering D3 though instead.

I'll be getting Fifa 15 for the PS4 as well, so make that two, and add me to your friends if you haven't already, its scraper on the PSN.

Also, the Infamous DLC comes out this week, so I'll be getting that.

It's not really DLC in the classic sense as it doesn't require Second Son.

Hit 70 tonight with my demon hunter (a class I barely touched on PC), which has been awesomely fun with a controller (especially having dodge controls). Right now I'm deciding what difficulty to continue at - I'm pretty much pouring through enemies at expert, and while master has twice the XP/gold, it's definitely slowing me down more than halfway. I'm only concerned about all the sweet, sweet drops I must be missing out on at lower difficulty.

My advice go to Master and once that becomes easy move Torment.  Torment is where the sweet spot is for me.  Had tons of fun farming with Forge on the PC.  He has one nasty Crusader specced in Fire Damage.  Has a 2h Sword that  called a Demon as a pet..  actually had a chain between him and the demon


Still want that sword
I just upgraded that Maximus for another with better stats smile.  She's at +71% fire damage now.

While waiting for 2.1 I've started playing hardcore.  Beat it over the weekend with a ranged holy crusader now working on getting him to 70 in HC adventure mode.  Had to stop because the ddos on Blizzard was making it too risky, had two DCs.  I play him completely different from my SC fire crusader.
