The user "reviews" are nuts for this.  Was sunset overdrive like this?  An exclusive that just got skewered by the other side just because?

No, I don't think so, but SO didn't have near the amount of hype as The Order, and it also doesn't have a single controversial aspect that people can latch on to, such as length/unskippable cutscenes/QTEs, etc. (It's also a great game, IMHO smile ). A fairly analogous example on the xbone side would be Ryse, although even then I don't recall it being specifically targeted by Playstation fans.


Sorry didn't mean to compare the two games, it was the first exclusive that popped in my head.  I should have gone with Ryse.

I've seen a 95 and a 20.  Not sure I've ever seen that range before.  I wonder if the scores are tainted by the gamer geek length news?

There's no way for us to know. We learn nothing from those two scores without reading the review, and even then the scores might not make sense.

That's even more strange as some reviews heap praise on the story and characters, even if they scored the game low, while other reviews say the story sucks and was boring.

Quote from: Blackjack on February 19, 2015, 03:56:48 AM

While I'm guardedly excited, I have to be a realist -- I'm one of those people who thought Prometheus was largely a rolling turd with one great performance (Fassbender) and a complete waste of Charlize Theron as a one-note screeching character (she's capable of great work) and pretty much all characters acting stupidly at all times in annoying fashion. And I thought Elysium was basically too polished a "big studio production" and a step down from District 9. Sometimes the more money you throw at sci-fi movies, the less movie you get. You could ask my older brother though as he likes both films.

So I'm not necessarily sure that an Aliens sequel with Blomkamp directing and Ridley Scott producing is a slam dunk home run.

If 20th Century Fox gets the heck out of the way and (and Ridley Scott for that matter) lets Blomkamp do what he wants to do; if Weaver and Michael Biehn see enough promise in a screenplay to sign up for it; if they just pretend the movies after Aliens didn't happen and let Blomkamp pick up that story thread. Then I'll be truly excited.  icon_smile

I'll admit I have no clue what story he'll concoct to explain Weaver's (65) and Biehn's (58) aging given the whole space sleep thing. Yes they're doing wonders with CGI-izing older actors to look like their young selves but I don't think they've reached the point of pulling that off for a whole movie smoothly (i.e., Young Jeff Bridges looking creepy in Tron Legacy for example).

That concept stuff may not be what they end up doing though.  Might have just been something for him to get his juices going.

20th Century Fox has closed a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to develop a new “Alien” movie, sources confirm.

The untitled sci-fi project is separate from “Prometheus 2,” which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.

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.
