You can sort of game it and quicksave and just try spacing through them.  It's sort of neat that you can save mid conversation.

Hey Paul, hey Paul, hey Paul let's have a MOBA

So yet another MOBA inspired game appears.  Third person with more verticalality.  The art is nice.

Quote from: Turtle on July 14, 2014, 12:31:18 PM

ATB: To be honest, this will probably be an MMO that doesn't play as much like an MMO, but if the thing about MMOs that you hated was the loot grind, you should probably still avoid this.

From all that I'm hearing, the best way to see if you'll be interested in the gameplay over the long run is if you liked Borderlands 2's combat. It's almost the same style of shooter where you have positioning and movement, but the damage is heavily level dependent, to the point where if you're 2+ levels above or below a target, they soak up a lot of fire.

Thanks, Turtle.

I never played borderlands.

The most offputting thing to me about MMO's is that for 'raids' you  need to have a bunch of other people to do  successfully.  I can't be beholden to a time schedule and I do 90% of my gaming solo and I'm not interested in memorizing DPS charts or taking anything that seriously slywink.


There were Strikes in the Alpha and these only consist of a 3 man team.  The full game is rumored to have Raids for 6 players (two strike teams), but there is nothing set to be any larger than that.  Group public events can have more players around them but where groups are restricted to 3 players you're really not going to see any of the crazy 50 man raids etc from classic MMOs.

373  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Divinity : Original Sin on: July 09, 2014, 07:01:29 PM
So this is out and I've put several hours into it now and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.  The turn based combat and the way all the skills and environment interact is great.  Teleport is one of the better skills I've seen show up in a game like this in a long time, who doesn't enjoy teleporting a bad guy 15 ft up into the air above a burning patch of ground?  The game also manages to make a rain spell super useful.  Quests have been decent, and overall the game is kind of lighthearted.  I recommend everyone start the game with the Pet Pal trait,  the animals say some of the more amusing things and you get to do things like broker a romance between a stray and house cat.

Three episodes into season 5 and I'm not sure about the direction.  Even for McNulty what he is doing seems pretty out of character, and even more so for Lester.

I've decided to cancel my pre-order for this one. I was going XB1, but the 1-year exclusive DLC and halved beta time for XB1 owners is a bit slap in the face to Xbox fans who have supported Bungie for so long.

Just like they did to PC/MAC users who supported Marathon and Myth.   Roll Eyes

So... I'm assuming in order to play the beta you have to have a PSN Subscription is that correct?

Anyone?

I don't know about Beta, but the Alpha let you play without PS+ and if you were a member, but there were other areas that were open to you if you are a subscriber.

ok.  I don't have a sub yet, and the games that I have I don't have any interest yet, so I'm holding out until I have to.  I don't have a problem paying for the service, just don't want to pay for it when I'm not using it smile

Keep in mind the "free" games you get monthly with plus.  Right now it's Strider and Towerfall.

Am I wrong to think that this game looks a lot like Borderlands as far as the gameplay goes or is there more to it?

There's a bit more to it.  It's like Borderlands with the FPS/RPG mechanics but there's more MMO to this.  You can randomly come across other players in the environment and there are Guild Wars 2 style area events.

For the Robotech only folks, Protoculture isn't remotely the same.  It's only in Macross, for one, and it's neither a plant or energy source, but is as its name implies, the first culture, basically think Precursors or Forerunners.

Remotely the same as what?  My hypothetical Volt-Go-Formers show?

Between Macross, Southern Cross, MOSPEADA and Robotech.   Protoculture is the through line between the series in the US adaptation, but is only actually present in Macross as a term and there it means something else entirely.  Southern Cross does have the Flowers of Light though which basically do behave as what is presented in Robotech as Protoculture.  Neither are present in MOSPEADA.

I may be missing what you're trying to say, but hypothetically you could just find some way to bring the Matrix of Leadership into GoBots and Voltron to have a similar tie-together.

Ok, I really can't tell if you're just being intentionally daft now as you sometimes do.  This had nothing to do with your hypothetical show.  I was pointing out one of the major rewrites that was done for the US version to try and tie them all together.  If you were a big fan of the series, and maybe played the Palladium Robotech P&P RPG, you knew what Protoculture was, except that wasn't what it was supposed to be at all.

The downside, as I understand it, is that Harmony Gold is preventing any of the real Macross sequels (of which there were several in Japan) from coming out to the US.  Macross, I believe, is the only one of the series to get proper sequels to the original Japanese show as well.

One interesting thing from the originals is that Genesis Climber MOSPEADA (Invid Invasion) released before Super Dimension Southern Cross and wasn't part of the Super Dimension series.  The Super Dimension shows consisted of
Super Dimension Fortress Macross
Super Dimension Century Orguss
Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross

Story wise, the 3 Super Dimension series were unrelated, but similar in themes.  Orguss was dropped entirely from Robotech, with them using the earlier released MOSPEADA to be the final segment of the show.

I actually have an Orguss action figure at home, even though I didn't know what it was until years after I got it.

Orguss

They did not "step in."  A plaintiff brought suit against the trademark and the government ruled in the plaintiffs favor at this juncture.

Side note on the Native American / Indian.  Upon moving to New Mexico I learned that the Indians here prefer to be called Indians.  All the references you see around here pretty much all say Indian, from Indian tacos to Indian dances to the Indian Culture Center.  Generally, they think "Native American" is a stupid term.  Using just "Native" is acceptable.

The trouble with using Indian is well, India.

Still what I'm getting at is, Wolfenstein isn't pushing the PS4 hardware.   Infamous: SS looks better than pretty much anything on the PC from a year or two ago.

Wolfenstein is fun, but man I had some frustrating moments already in the first level.  Jumping out of that plane, it tells me to sprint and jump. I followed their instructions and I kept dying and dying over and over again.  FPS games are better for me on PC games, but I'm liking it. 

I think I'm going to just rent games until Destiny comes out.  I don't expect this to be my primary game system.

The first level is the worst by far. 

Also, while I greatly enjoyed Wolfenstein, don't expect it to be a graphics showpiece for what the PS4 can do.
