Is this MP only?  Allow online MP?

I believe it is always online due to the meta game, though I may be mistaken.   You can play it solo, though to get the most out of it you will want to play co-op.  Local and online are both supported for co-op.

Watching the stream and this continues to impress.  This has the potential to be quite special I think.

Some of the more powerful weapons like the rocket launcher require one of the other players to grab a support kit and to reload it for you, same with a heavy machine gun.

If you haven't done so already, please be sure to check out Danger 5.  It's an Australian spoof on 70's spy shows, and is simultaneously one of the most ridiculous and hilarious things I've ever seen.  I don't even know how to describe it, other than batshit insane.

This should sum it up nicely:  the last episode I watched (titled "Lizard Soldiers of the Third Reich") featured a Nazi pterodactyl using a broken beer bottle during a fist fight, a trip through the deep dark jungles of Antarctica, a dynamite-obsessed money in a Hawaiian shirt, and Hitler overseeing gladiator combat between a Minotaur and a binge-drinking Russian spy (which took place inside a volcano).

Seriously, just go watch it.

It's the same people that did Italian Spiderman, if you haven't seen that track it down.  It's the source of this infamous GIF

I think there is an element of divisiveness for sure, but the more reviews I read, the more 'rotten in Denmark' this gets.  People go on (and on) about how fantastic parts of the game are, then with little info to the contrary hand it a low score.  This feels a little more witch hunt than usual. 

Like with Knack, and to a lesser degree Driveclub (which had very real launch problems) there does seem to be a tendency for reviewers to be out for blood when dealing with the
Sony exclusives.   Bloodborne next month will be interesting.

I am really loving the game right now (thanks gift cards!), and I will say that I particularly despise this game's autosave function. Does it save when I sleep in a safehouse? Not always! Does it save when I go to the tower or Rais' place? Not always! God forbid I try to play the game in the time before I have to go somewhere, because I am scouring the map for a safe place, and hoping that it will save the game. Quicksave, motherfuckers, learn to use it!

I'm pretty sure it saves character status whenever you quit to main menu.

I'd still love to play with others. Just the whole Bnet in general doesn't seem to be doing MP anymore. I tried matchmaking repeatedly and never get connected to anything. Throw up an open one, no one joins. I remain unconvinced that D3's switch away from the first couple games of simply throwing up a game with a simple name on it (still the way that Grim Dawn, Torchlight II et al handle it as well) is an improvement from a socializing aspect. I don't know if that's any different with Adventure Mode games or the L70 play.

I think the issue is your low level.  Outside of Seasons or Hardcore I think most people have hit 70 with many levels of Paragon at this point.  I have every class at 70 and 340somethign Paragon.

Tyson and Nye commenting with slipshod science is one of  the most disappointing things about the whole affair.  I'd expect our public science figures to address it thoroughly or not at all.

How much is there to do from the science side of it? Seems to be a simple formula (that I couldn't do) dealing with air temperatures and pressure. What more are they supposed to do/say?

Tyson did that calculation assuming absolute pressure (as the equation calls for) and not gauge pressure.  There was a 15% drop (alleged, now it's alleged less) in gauge pressure, he did that calculation assuming a 15% drop in absolute pressure.  15% in the gauge pressures listed would equate to a 7% difference in absolute pressure.  That also assumes that temperature was the only factor where the football being wet may have slightly altered the volume as well.  So like I said, slipshod.

USA Today says they didn't. (As well as just about every other article I have read.)

Then the Colts were cheating and heating the balls on the sideline.

Serious answer, that's just more bad reporting.  Half these stories have had misinformation, such as it was Jackson who noticed the difference in the ball, or how many can't tell the difference between pressure and weight.

It makes me mad that Brad Johnson did it. He was - I thought- a stand up guy and I used to cheer for him when I was in DC and he played for the Skins.  Now I think he's a piece of garbage.

I frigging hate cheaters.

Well frankly this looks like a witch-hunt.  Weather alone would account for about a 2lb drop in PSI

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxsXFX3tDpg

Why wouldn't weather affect the Colt's balls the same way?

Who says it didn't?  Were they checked and what was the drop in them, because unless they were inflated wet and at 50 they would have a PSI drop.  It's possible that they were prepared under different conditions and we don't know what they started at, they could have started at 13.5 and suffered only a 1lb drop and still been regulation.

To act like weather doesn't have an effect on PSI is to deny science.

The price difference between 3.5' and 2.5' drives are not that steep. And SSD drives are all 2.5 sized (which the console can use natively).

And does anyone need more than 2TB of console storage? Seriously, delete something.

When some of us were already deleting things less than a year into this consoles life cycle, and games are just going to get bigger, there's a need for more storage.



~500GB felt a bit constricting but 2TB feels like plenty for a while.  That's about 40 ~50 GB games of storage.

Is it easy to copy your content over?

Just copy your saves and screenshots/video captures (if you care about them) to a USB thumbdrive and you're good to go.  That process could be a little more streamlined though, would be nice to have a "copy all saves" option, you kind of have to go game by game. 

The other thing is you'll need to redownload all your DCL/Games, also make sure to reset "this is my primary console" or whatever setting post HD swap.

Pretty sure Worshiper boss kills you if you don't get into the shrines when he does the ground thing at the health incremental.  It's also somewhat not obvious as it seems like
it's just going to be the pools on the ground, when in fact it's everywhere but the shrines.

Action Game of the Year: Lords of the Fallen Dark Souls lite, but with immensely better graphics, story, and weapons. The two handed weapons had real weight behind them, and you needed excellent timing to use them effectively.

Interesting.  I've heard it compared to Dark Souls on multiple occasions.  How's the difficulty on Lords of the Fallen?  I liked nearly everything about Dark Souls (the gameworld, the graphics, the combat, etc), but that insane difficulty level was a complete turn-off.  Would love something similar that didn't make me feel like I was bashing my head up against a wall.

You're the first person I've heard say that the story is good though.  Every review says that's a major weak point for LotF.

The difficulty level is much more tolerable than Dark Souls. There are save crystals strategically placed throughout the world, and when you use one your health and health potions are restored. The twist is that each time you use the save slot, your experience point bonuses reset to zero. You gain these bonuses with each enemy you kill. For example, kill 5 enemies and the XP multiplier become 1.15. Kill 20 and it becomes 1.75. It makes leveling faster. Using a save slot resets it to zero, but that is only a minor impediment.

Combat is very similar. Forget about dodging with heavy amour. Two handed weapons have very slow arcs that can be interrupted by fast enemies, etc. Combat is nice and realistic. Getting your shield hit by a powerful blow can send you sprawling to the ground. Getting hit in the head can momentarily daze you, etc. The weapon assortment is MUCH greater than Dark Souls, and various gems you find can be crafted into the weapons to increase your poison damage, fire resistance, etc.

You can play a few different combat styles: sword and shield, two-handed, dual wield daggers, magic based, etc.


A few recommendations if you pick it up:

-Encumbrance is the most important aspect of combat. As with Dark Souls, low encumbrance might mean you can make 5 consecutive attacks before becoming fatigued, whereas high encumbrance may allow you only two strikes.
-Sword and shield is best for newbies.
-There is a magic spell that allows you to send a ghost version of yourself smashing into enemies. Max out this spell.
-Always be watching for hidden rooms and secrets. There is free DLC in the XB1 and PS4 versions that allow you to wear a ring that chimes when you are near hidden treasures, but you still need to figure out HOW to get to them. You get the ring via a quest early in the game.
-If a boss beats the sh!t out of you too quickly, you are underleveled. Unlike Dark Souls, there are not really any cheap bosses.


Finally, the story is good, but I should stress this is true only if if you read all of the scrolls and hidden parchments. There are very few cut scenes or NPC conversations.


This game was my hidden gem for 2014. I played it on a high end PC and the XB1.


I dunno about that one.  The bosses have some one hit kills, some of which you don't know are one hit kills until you die to them, also the hit boxes are bit wonkier than in the Souls games, and you will at times get hit by something that visually clearly misses.

I agree it's a pretty decent game though.

I wonder if it is trying to do some network call and with PSN being hosed was hanging and not giving a real error.  Try disconnecting the PS4 from the network and see if it goes away.  The problem with the outage from the DDoS is things are in a partial state and certain services aren't properly recognized as unavailable.

The soap opera effect has nothing to do with resolution, but is a result of motion smoothing to match the frame rate to the refresh rate, this is done by creating new frames by interpolating images between frames.   It helps reduce judder on fast pans, though it seems most people dislike the effect overall.

I believe on Sony TVs it's called Motion Flow.

Subject says it all, and idiots are to blame.

Sim City is the latest example I'd like to discuss.  If EA (very bad company anyway, though I love Fifa), were to create a full fledged Sim City And charge $15 or so for it without IAP bullshit, and made it similar enough to any Sim City we've played...  They would sell a truck load and gain a crap load more respect. 

How the hell is this not a no brainer?  That was rhetorical, it's not, because you have brain dead tools spending shit loads of money on Candy Crush, FarmVille and the like and the real gamers amongst us get shafted.

The studios that do it gain my utmost respect, those that jump on the IAP shit wagon lose a lot of respect.  Blizzard is by all means the only big developer that gets it right.  EA isn't even freaking close.

Just had to vent, the ipad is a nice place to play while not at home, but would be so much better if the execs at these companies weren't such idiots.  I get that they may make more now, but long term the latter is a lot better option.  Charge $15 or $20 for a full fledged sim city game on ios without IAP shiit, your eyes will be open ea idiots.

Yeah, their eyes will be open, open to near zero sales.

This fight is over, the market expects mobile games to cost $5 and under and even $5 is considered the high end.

So I'm through chapter 13, I believe. I'm actually liking the game more...
Spoiler for Hiden:
now that the Alien is gone. It was more of a nuisance than anything and now the game is playing a little more like a stealth game.

Unfortunately I read a spoiler last night that the Alien (or Aliens) come back. I don't know how they come back story-wise, but oh well, there's a surprise down the drain.

I really like the environment design and the story, and Ripley is a great character. One of the few game characters whose actions and abilities make perfect sense based on how the character has been presented to us. The gameplay itself is what I'm still trying to work out if I like. As I mentioned, the Alien I just found to be annoying. I could crouch walk around without making a sound and then invariably have it drop through the ceiling and impale me while I'm working on a fuse box or whatever.

And yeah, still not finding the game scary at all. I don't think this is the game's fault, because lots of people say they find this game very scary. I guess it's just not the kind of stuff I find scary. Things that tend to get to me are creepy things like messed up monsters and creepy environments, and yes, jump scares. This game has robots and clean hallways and things that will grab you off the floor as you walk by, something that works exactly once until you know to look out for it. But Silent Hill and Outlast and stuff like that, I can't deal with.

Have you played P.T. yet?
