Last nights episode  eek

That was awesome from beginning to end.  Some of the best dragon effects I've seen in any media ever.  And then that war battle, wow.

I might have said it before, but I have to wonder how George RR Martin feels these days.  On the one hand it must be incredibly exciting to see such awesome content come to life.  But on the other I can't imagine how bittersweet it is to have all these massive plot points and reveals he's held in his pocket for over 20 years being revealed by someone else.  I really thought that alone would have motivated him to get his ass in gear and finish, but at this point he might as well just take his time and finish the series in 2030 lol.


How weird is it going to be when the books continue to diverge from the show?

Anyone else unable to download the RE7 demo on PS4?  All I see is an option to add to wishlist.
I got it on the PS4 itself, it was kind of buried.

Are you in the US?

Sony confirms new, high-end Playstation 4

Quote
Despite confirming the existence of the new system, however, House said they wouldn't be debuting the new console at E3. The CEO insisted they wanted to make sure that there was a full range of experiences that could be shown off to fans when they do eventually unveil it.

I would like to know more about what it will do and how it will be different.

Wow some of the action pieces in this game are outright jaw-drop stunning!

I'm probably about half way through the game but the jeep chase through the town and then after Sam was one of the most fun and exciting gaming experiences I've had in a LONG time. It was literally like being directly in control of a blockbuster summer action movie. Simply sublime!

That is exactly the sequence I was thinking of when I posted!

Still having a blast with this game, even playing through levels and just blasting demons with my upgrades.  Is there a new game+ kind of thing where you can earn all upgrades or can you do that if you find everything in general?  Seems like there's not enough upgrades or argent energy to fully upgrade the armor and all weapons.

So... I haven't loaded a save game yet since I only played once so far for a little while... How does it work? Based on your posts it sounds like you can't stop and save in the middle of a level.  Is that accurate?

You can stop in the middle of your furthest level and go and play previously completed levels without erasing your furthest progress.  It's kind of nice really. There's separate options for resume vs replay.

If you replay and earlier level, do your findings affect your game progress?

Like, if I missed one of those suit chips, and I go back to the earlier level and find it, does it appear when I load my main game?

Yes, your collectibles maintain and you only need to find the ones you haven't already collected if you replay a level.  The ones you already have just show as orange on map.  The others are still white.  If you go back to resume, you will have all the current collectibles and upgrades you found.

I can't get enough of this game. The combat is fast and fun. The levels get huge and there's tons of nooks and crannies for the OCD explorer! 

My only "complaint" is about the hugeness of the levels.  It creates a similar problem that I had with the recent Wolfenstein games where I really love it, but I need to make sure I set aside enough time to play through a level in one go (or at least where I know I'll be able to follow up the following night).  If you stop midway through, you have to kind of get back into the flow of the map, which can actually add a lot of time to the next play.

I know it's not really fair to complain about that, but it makes it hard to jump into the game sometimes.

I can see that being the case as I am on level 4 and it seems massive.  Replaying to find secrets sounds like it could get lame because you have to play through the entire thing.

This is a later iteration of the engine with far, far less of those problems. If you're seeing low-res textures, you might be pushing your graphics card too hard.

I'll be playing on PS4, but Rage pop in was so bad I couldn't play more than an hour without getting annoyed.

Rage was their first attempt at using id Tech 5, and it was much improved with patches. Doom is using id Tech 6. That people generally no longer complain about the engine should be a good enough clue that it works.

Thanks, looks like my fears were unfounded as I didn't even notice it happen once in a couple hours.

This game is fun and not like I expected it would play, it really feels like a modern skin on OG Doom.  The melee deaths are actually kind of neat and useful too.  I will say it does not look quite as nice as the trailers made it look though.  For the record I am also playing through Uncharted 4 at the same time, so that might skew my opinion on the visuals.

Does this have the same awful texture pop that Rage had on PS4?

My friend playing it last night said it was exactly like Rage with those problems.  He's still enjoying it, but said it was quit blurry at times (on PC playing on Ultra).

Uggggggggh dammit

- the actor playing Kylo Ren seemed like a terrible choice, he always seems like a whiny loser to me. 

As I said to another friend who kept complaining about Kylo, look at who his grandfather and uncle are, and you'll realize the whole family is generations of whiny losers.  So in that respect, they chose pretty much perfectly lol.

+1 for reals.

I heard another interesting theory:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Supreme Leader Snoke is a clone of Luke made from his hand that they recovered along with the lightsaber.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I also wondered if he was a clone, but I thought it was the emperor, not Luke.  In the official art of the force awakens book, they said the design of Snoke they went for was supposed to *not* look like the emperor, to distance the big bad from that trilogy and this one.  I think he still looks old and decrepit, like the emperor did though.

There are only X-Wings and TIE Fighters in this movie when it comes to starfighters, but these aren't the same models from the old movies. The X-Wings are pretty similar in most regards, but are now so effective that they're probably the standard fighter for the Resistance, whereas X-Wings were in limited supply back in the Rebellion era. The old model was the T-65B, while this new one is called T-70. The biggest difference between the two models that I can see is that the T-70 features an underslung blaster cannon that the pilot can aim independently of the ship.

The new x-wings have a split engine with one half on each wing.  The old ones were not like that.  

Yeah, I wasn't really looking at visual qualities when I was writing that. I'm more into the technical specs. smile

Trivia: The new X-Wing look is actually based on the original sketches for A New Hope, so in some ways it's the old X-Wing look.

Yep!

Spoiler for Hiden:
Rey is.....Luke's kid?  Too many connections.  Dropped off on desert planet.  Good pilot and mechanics.  Looks just like young Leia and Padme.  Had flashbacks when touching the lightsaber?

I actually thought she was gonna be a solo kid too, so that surprised me.

Some fuck face spoiled the Kylo Ren thing for me months ago, really chaps my hide, but I still had fun with it. 

Snoke is who?  Emperor clone?

Han Solo rocked it.  Every line of his was perfect and I am sad that he had to go. 

That's all I can think of for me.  Just really loved it and can't wait to go back!


Spoiler for Hiden:
You're right about too many connections.  I also worry that Finn is force enhanced, explaining why he is the only stormtrooper, apparently in history, to overcome his conditioning.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I didn't even think about Finn being force sensitive, but I guess it makes sense too
