This is definitely one of those games that I'm interested in but is falling under the "no preorders for new ip" rule.

Did you pre-order The Last of Us?!

That was last gen, before all this ridiculousness starting happening. And anything naughty dog makes would certainly get an exemption.

Ok I spit out my drink for nothing then!

My backlog is so big and full of solid games I just see no reason to jump in without reviews these days. I'm getting eager to pick up Dying Light, but even that has had a bunch of patches already. I hope 1886 is great (Ready at Dawn did great work on the PSP), but I don't want to be the guinea pig. I'll save that for Tomb Raider, Batman, Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted.

Dying light is awesome btw

Well I think the first Hulk, Daredevil and ghost rider movies were made outside of Marvel studios and they now control them.  Second Hulk was marvel studios.  I thought it was ok, but I think it's not well liked.

IMDB is pretty sure that point is focal:

That said, I never really much liked the story, and though I enjoy their movies, I can recall Marvels' failures too. Xmen Origins: Wolverine or X-men 3, perhaps?

Civil War is story about Cap. I'd rather see a combined cast for Secret Wars (unlikely, methinks) or the upcoming Infinity Gauntlet/Infinity War (the latter less so).

Xmen is not controlled by Marvel studios, it's Fox.

I picked this up for some reason and got to play for several hours yesterday. 

I got to the point of the first forced night mission and after first running away from the virals I started creeping veeeery slowly to avoid all the others and try to get back to the tower.  After creeping slowly (and running one more time) for a long time, somehow a viral just spotted me out of nowhere as I was crouching behind a car.  Of course a whole bunch of them started chasing me and then I died.  And it spawned me back before I got the last package.  Fuck that. 

This game can go to hell if they really want to introduce players to their night mechanic with a forced night mission (after a terrible cutscene where my character does stupid things for clearly terrible people) that is going to take a long time and end in death and resets.  I'm fine with failing on my own terms, but being forced to fail and lose time is not my idea of fun.

my first night mission lasted about 30-45 seconds.  Just run like a little bitch to the tower doing your best to avoid any groups of bad guys and use your survivor sense to avoid the powerful ones completely.  Having troubles?  Do it coop.  Nothign forced you to fail

Hmm, I don't think it's even possible to run back to the tower in 30 seconds from the second drop location even if you run directly at the zombies.  I ran away from them which led me to the beach and taking a left, having to go a long way around the cliffs with lots of crawling and waiting.

People tell me that using the UV flashlight on the volatiles (or virals?) will actually stun them.  It would be really nice if the game explained that.  I tried using that thing on some normal zombies and nothing seemed to happen so I assumed it was a way to see at night without being spotted. 

As I snuck around at night the game just keep telling me to use my flashlight in the dark, which seems really stupid because it will just get me spotted.  Even though the volatiles seem to be able to see perfectly in the dark and spot you even when you're doing nothing.   disgust

iirc when you get the UV light, it tells you it stuns them.  You actually have to equip it and press R2 to get it to go off, the light turns blue.  I didn't realize that at first.

Oddly, the flashlight beam does NOT trigger zombies at night.

You can see the cone of vision for the volatiles on your mini-map.  Even if you are standing still (provided on level ground) and you are in their cone of vision, they will spot you.

Quick question for you guys.  If I join PS+ this month do I qualify for these free games even if I sign up on the last day of the month?  Or do you have to have been a Plus member for sometime?

Thanks!

Yep, you can join PS+ any time during the month and get the free games.  You just need to subscribe and "buy" the current free set before the current games go away and are replaced with a new batch. 

It's kind of dumb that you have to manually get the games or it doesn't count, but that's how the system works.  I'm sure it saves them tons of money in the long run.

Weren't they going to add a kind of "add to library" feature to make that process easier?

I thought so too, but haven't seen it.

So a couple times I have gone into a game or had someone join my game and just boost my character like crazy.  They will start a rift trial and own everything so we all get a rift 100 stone and then they just PLOW through the rift, so fast I can't even keep up with them.  I literally would gain a paragon level every 2 seconds and after going through this a couple times I have 4 BILLION gold.  They have 25 million + DPS.  This is on PS4.  How are people able to get this high of DPS?  I saw a guy yesterday with a yellow weapon that had 24 million DPS!  My DH is geared pretty good and I still only have 1.5 million DPS and I can't see how to increase it anymore.  What are people doing to get this much DPS??

This thread will be used for off season and the start of this year's football season

Well, we're all on even playing ground now.  As far as my niners are concerned, they rather be bad to mediocre instead of being successful and having to deal with an ultra competitive coach.  There's been reports that ownership told Harbaugh he wouldn't be back next year after the loss to Seattle in December.   So much for "mutal agreement"  Just tells you that Harbaugh was pretty classy when it came to his fate.  He could have easily fought the whole time, make them fire him, take the $5 million he was owed and then get paid again by Michigan.  Just shows you how stupid York is.

As far as the rest of football goes, there needs to be some major changes on player conduct and officiating.  Both were huge distractions and both need to be addressed.

What does your team need to do this offseason?

49ers need to go back to the power run game.  Don't know if that's going to be possible if Gore leaves.  Kap needs to improve with getting the play off in time, reading defenses, and making better decisions.


49ers need to go back in time and not fire Harbaugh and instead just fire Roman.

I watched the post game interview with Malcolm Butler from Sal Palantonio on ESPN and it was 180 degree difference from the Sherman "I'm the best corner in the game" after the NFCCG against SF.  Palantonio was trying to goad him into saying something crazy and he was just humble and overwhelmed.  I can't think of a better way for Seattle to lose the game.  So many good memes of Sherman's boasting on the sidelines when they were up by 10.

Are they like that if you go back to the Slums?  Perhaps location has something to do with it.

That's where I thought I first noticed it.  The streets right outside of the tower had more aggressive zombies and I just chalked it up to leveling them leveling a bit with me.  As if the dev really had them slow and lumbering at first so you wouldn't get overwhelmed and as your power grew they became a little more competent.  It's not like they are completely upgraded, but the regular biters are just more aggressive and faster it seems. 

None of this takes away from the game, just an observation.  I am really enjoying it and glad I did not wait for reviews instead of just jumping in.  I think I need to upgrade my weapons more as it seems you find a lot of parts and items to work with.  The only problem is I use parkour so much I don't go through the weapons that I do find.

I've noticed that as I gain more abilities, the zombies get stronger and faster too and not just at night.  Makes running around not as easy going as when you start.

Well that seems to defeat the whole point of getting stronger and faster, doesn't it?   retard

I'm not sure that is the case. Regular zombie is still a regular slow zombie. However as your progress through the story and go to different locations, different zombie types start to show up that are much harder to deal with.

Seems to me that as I am level 8 in each skill tree, even the regular zombies move faster and are more aggressive and numerous.  Previously they would just lumber around and maybe one would move at me quickly.  As for the specials, they do seem to show up more frequently too.

Does this game have that great optional analog control scheme from Dead Island where you could control how you swing your weapons and target and break limbs on the zombies?

Sadly, no.  they had to dump that in favor of the free-running

I did get a perk that allows you to slide kick and break zombie legs though.

How deep is the crafting/base building/scavenging? I have a couple of hours put into State of Decay, and even though this one is obviously different in its presentation, I'm hoping that the aforementioned aspects are at least somewhat prominent and not just window dressing to disguise the parkour/combat parts. I'm also hoping for my traditional Valentine's Steam card, so that I may actually get this one, as I have sworn not to buy a game with my own money this year.

I am not sure if there is base building.  There are safe zones you clear of zombies and then they give you spots across the map where you can rest without being attacked. 

Crafting requires you to find blueprints.  So far I have only found blueprints to add effects to weapons (fire/electricity, etc).  Weapons have a set durability and after some time will break.  They have a fixed amount of times you can repair them before they are gone for good.  There are perks that allow your weapons to lose durability much slower and even not use up "repair charges" when you repair them.  I've played about 7 hours, mostly running around and doing a few side quests.  Not sure if there are schematics to actually build weapons.  I've been finding a ton throughout the game world.  So much so I was banking them at first and now I just break them down for parts.

If you have ever watched a zombie show (say, walking dead) and wished you could run and climb around the abandoned town and loot things, bash zombies, and get into general mayhem, then this might be the game for you.  Note that you start off with few skills and crap weapons and as you go on they get better and you get more adept at dealing the zombies.  After a few hours they are still the shuffling variety, but I have seen some different kinds (no more details) to know what's coming.  One thing that is hokey is the little caches you find all over (even a toolbox) seem to repopulate when you launch the game again.  Probably makes sense, but it just caught my attention.

Anyone know if the entire campaign can be played co op, or is it like Unity with only special missions available?


It looks like after you get through the tutorial you can play coop, but I'm not sure if you just run around or if you go through the story missions.  The story has a lot of cutscenes so far, so not sure how that would work.

The game seems like it's Dead Island, but you are VERY upwardly mobile.  You can climb on pretty much everything and the terrain is setup so that you will do so.  The game scratches my apocalyptic itch pretty good and in the first couple hours at least, you can run circles around the zombies so it makes exploring pretty cool.  I'm sure they will get more adept at eating my neck soon.  So far I have been scrounging for mats, you can upgrade items and build items.  Pretty standard stuff.  I thought the dialogue and fetch missions in Dead Island were a little B-movie and that seems to be the case here.  The visuals are pretty good though and the world seems massive.
