Is anyone trying to run another console through their X1? I just hooked my PS3 up to it for Stick of Truth and the lag is pretty noticeable (causes me to royally screw up the real time battle presses).

Of note: I am A) the current production software, not the beta B) Running 5.1 sound passthrough (noted as a beta feature) and C) Running through an AV receiver on top of that.
I thought that was known from launch and not really a recommended configuration because of that.  TV isn't impacted by lag and why it is fine for that.

Farscape popped back up in my recommended list last week.  I had tried getting through the first episode on three separate occasions, but the cheesy effects and sorta lackluster acting turned me off.  I decided I'd give it one more shot to see if it clicked...and it finally did.  Watched the first three episodes and I'm quite enjoying it now.  As long as I approach it knowing the whole thing is going to me somewhat silly, it's pretty fun.

Farscape is great, and really picks up in season 2.  Scorpius is a great villain, and the show goes in some real interesting directions plot wise.  Things at the time would have been a one off and reset at the end of the episode in shows like Star Trek end up as season long problems.

Does FF really need a reboot?  I really liked the original cast, I would have been happier with a sequel.  The new cast is a bit odd for me, even though I like some of the young talent they chose. 

...and also, I didn't realize Matthew Vaughn is so handsome!  He should just cast himself.

Eh, Alba was a complete miscast and Richards wasn't great either.  Evans has moved on to Captain America no way he'd ever be back.   I was never fond of those films.   The new casting doesn't fill me with much hope for this version either though.

Really would be best if this and X-men/Spider-Man reverted back to Marvel.

Also, did you buy the Xbox One primarily for exclusives? That is, was one of your main purchasing decisions the ability to play Titanfall? Well, if you bought the Xbox One at launch at full price in anticipation of Titanfall, Microsoft has something just for you.

A giant middle finger.

Yeah, with consoles, and well any tech, you're always running the risk that a better deal is right around the corner from when you buy, but that one does feel a bit
too soon.  Like if that was a November deal I wouldn't bat an eye.

The most interesting thing is that if you are broadcasting your game your viewers can interact and modify it.

What can they interact with and modify?  They can control the enemies or something?

You can see some of it in the trailer but from the blog
Quote
Broadcast+ Mode – This mode allows you to stream your game to the masses interactively, and your viewers can influence the difficulty of your game. Periodically all your viewers, whether they be on PS4 or a web browser, have the option to vote between a positive and negative effect that occurs in your game. There are a total of 30 different voting effects that can occur, ranging from spawning zombie packs to giving the player ammo, or even disabling the player’s ability to sprint. For revenge on those people, voters will appear in the game as named zombies for you to kill.

Daylight looks to be doing something similar.

Quote
Sadly, split-screen is limited to a pared-down Garden Ops mode that's only playable offline, and player two can't earn coins or achievements. While it is nice that some sort of concession was made to even allow split-screen in the first place, it's a shame that the second player can't earn their own rewards or play online in general. With those options, Warfare would be a force to be reckoned with in terms of local play.

Also I think it's super dumb that EA went exclusive (timed at least) with this so close to Titanfall.  They could have done well on PS4/PS3 and not had to worry about eating their own sales with Titanfall.

I also think from the XB1 side, the game has the issue of not really being an XB1 exclusive, with what seemed from the beta of an excellent PC version, and the unknown quality of the 360 version.  I feel like MS must have pushed EA to delay that 360 version a couple of weeks to try and drive XB1 sales.

Or we can just take Respawn's word for it - the 360 version is being done by a different developer that needs more time, instead of resorting to ridiculous conspiracy theories designed to imply that XB1 sales are in the toilet.

Two weeks is practically nothing in development terms.  Look at Watchdogs and Driveclub as counterpoints, those games have gotten BIG delays for further dev time.

I think the 360 will be a bigger threat than the PC to the sales numbers of the XB1 version, but it'll interesting to see how the numbers play out.

I almost think they should have completely scrapped the 360 version.  It just seems lose/lose.  If the port is fantastic, Titanfall becomes less of an XB1 system seller.  If the port is terrible, well, you get a lot of unhappy people complaining about how terrible the port is.  It has to be good enough for people to love it but bad enough for people to be driven to upgrade their system.

Are they doing a 360 > XB1 version upgrade deal like they did for those launch window titles?  Seems like it would be exceedingly foolish not to.

You got to remember this isn't a Microsoft game, and you'd be asking EA to give up even more sales.  MS may have even proposed it but the number EA threw out may have been too high.  Also remember EA wants this to be their CoD, they want to expose as many people as possible, so in that regard going exclusive to one brand may not have been their smartest move.

I look forward to you all working out the kinks and providing good feedback to the devs so the sequel hits it out of the park, as this looks fun.  -PS4 owner

I'll all for this franchise going cross-platform, but the way this is turning into the XB1 showcase game right now I think there's a good chance Microsoft will give EA/Respawn a blank check to keep the next game exclusive.

This game is in a weird spot as I'm pretty sure MS underpaid EA.  I say a weird spot, because if it does poorly then the MS deal was good for EA, but if it does well EA short changed themselves.  PS4 has done gangbusters with over 5.3 million sold now, I'm sure beyond what EA forcasted, and on top of that all of EA's games are selling better on the PS4 than the XB1, and I'd wager real money that when they used their lost sales calculations they were basing it on 360/PS3 percentages where the 360 versions always outsold the PS3 versions.

I'd add David Bowie to the list...especially since I had a chance to see him back in college and passed on it.  Was during the NIN/Bowie tour in the mid-90's, and I was a DJ at the campus radio station.  We got some free tickets to the show, but while I loved NIN, I wasn't really that into Bowie yet.  (This was Earthling/Outside-era Bowie, which is still my least favorite phase of his.)  I decided the 2 hour drive from Pueblo to Denver wasn't worth it just to see NIN as an opening act, so I skipped on the show all together.  Totally kicking myself over that decision, as I'm pretty sure I'd donate my left nut to see a Bowie/NIN show today.  frown

They did a great transition between NiN and Bowie for that tour.  The band members slowly swapping, and NiN doing a Bowie cover leading into Bowie doing a NiN cover.

That has been standard moshpit etiquette (for lack of a better term) for as long as I've been going to metal shows.  Maybe the nu-metal crowd is different animal though...

Yeah there's an appropriate age.  I was at a Korn show recently with my cousin (hey he had free tickets) and we sat up in the balcony and were next to a cool couple
who had brought their 16 or 17 year old son who was down in the mosh pit.  The dad was clearly and old mosher himself and kept a keen eye on his kid from up in the balcony while letting his kid run solo and not be totally embarrassed by the old man.  It was really rather cute.  That show had a really well run pit too, I saw someone
fall over and immediately a group formed a barrier around the guy that went down and someone helped him up and out.  There was a period of time around here when the moshpit went to complete shit so it was nice to see a well run one again.

Wednesday I'm going to see Cibo Matto biggrin In recent months I've seen Peter Murphy doing all Bauhaus, New Order doing 5 Joy Division songs as an encore, peter Hook & The Light giving his take on early New Order (which was awesome), Mudhoney, Melvins, Dead Milkmen, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Atoms For Peace, Queens of the Stone Age and Skinny Puppy.

I'm gonna see Gary Numan, Les Claypool, King Buzzo acoustic(!), and maybe even Neil Young in March. In May I'm going to Psych Fest, 3 days of obscure psychedelic bands.

I love Austin biggrin

Just saw Skinny Puppy Saturday and it was another great show by them, my 3rd time seeing them.  I'll be seeing Gary Numan  again in a few weeks as well.  Also saw that Peter Murphy Bahaus set up here in Boston.   We seem to have similar tastes, if you haven't seen Killing Joke I'd recommend you do if they come around again,  they are getting a bit old, but their last tour was awesome.

Also in two weeks I'll be seeing Throwing Muses with Tanya Donnelly opening, that has a lot of potential to be a great show.

Yeah, it was my 3rd Puppy show- always a blast. I actually took my 15 year-old son who recently started considering them his favorite band in the last 6 months or so.

I'm a huge Martin Atkins fan, but never really got into Killing Joke. Which brings me to my next "wish I'd seen": Pigface (original lineup)

Then you're raising that boy right.  On the father son front and getting back to the first post, I took my dad to see AC/DC on their last tour.  Not my or his first time seeing them, but was fun to share with him now that I'm much older as they've always been his favorite band and at 60+ not something he'd go to on his own.  I also managed to get our tickets upgraded at the show too from nosebleeds to lower field!

Played hardpoint last night for about 90 mins and yes it totally changed my opinion of the game.

I went back and played Attrition and I think its kind of a terrible mode.  It has all the normal TDM problems sort of magnified by the games speed.  Both Hardpoint an Last Titan Standing are pretty good though.  Hardpoint by introducing direction to the chaos, and LTS by limiting respawns CS style controls the chaos.   I just found Attrition to be a mess,  and I could never get a handle on how to play it effectively whereas in HP and LTS I can do quite well and MVP is not out of the question.   I personally think pushing people new to the game to play Attrition first  in the beta is a bit of a small misstep by Respawn.
