Suarez out for 9 games and four months for his third career bite attack on an opposing player.

Seems kind of lenient for a 3rd offense and at the World Cup of all things.

So apparently my office is setting up a big TV downstairs and grilling out hot dogs and stuff. I guess they figured they were going to lose productivity today either way, so they may as well do it up right.  icon_biggrin

Quote from: TiLT on June 19, 2014, 06:37:05 PM

Have you guys forgotten that the very first scene in this show, the first 7+ minutes of Game of Thrones ever shown on TV, was entirely about a White Walker attack? GoT has made it abundantly clear from the absolute beginning that there's an undead threat north of the Wall. It's not like the show slowly moved into this territory. It established this theme right away, and only then did it move into the politics. Even that took a couple of episodes to get going. Some of you might even recall the discussions among book readers at the time had them worried that the opening would scare away potential viewers who would enjoy the politics.

The North remembers.

(and I do too!)

Everything about the game looks awesome with the exception of the Mecha-Batman suit. I'm a big fan of the agile martial arts expert take on Batman and if you dress him up in an Iron Man suit it takes that away. But who am I kidding, I will buy the game day 1 and play the heck out of it.

I think the mecha suit is a different character, it's the Arkham Knight not batman

There is a beta coming in late july if you pre-order.  They (Amazon, at least) send you the code right away so you can cancel your pre-order and still participate.
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: June 13, 2014, 02:36:55 PM
Looks like I maxed out level.  You can only get to level 8 in the Alph and you start just shy of 3.  The abilities are weird, you are given the ability to upgrade, but as you level there's only 1 item you can choose and there seems to be no need to "save" upgrades.  I think maybe it's like this so you know you have a new ability?  Weird.  All the classes seem to start with the same weapons and only seem to have different grenades and then abilities later on. 

There are 3 different things to do in the Alpha.  When you start you have a quest to do.  Then you have kind of open world stuff to do for a few levels, then you have something called a "Strike" which is basically an instanced dungeon.  The bosses in the Strike were so ridiculous in the sense of how much ammo you have to pump into them it was silly. 

Loot is like borderlands and it seems like you can upgrade individual weapons too, at least the more rare items (non-white).

Overall I was not mind blown and I am seriously doubting whether this is going to be a 10 year thing.  Maybe it will be much more interesting as you level.  At these early levels there's just not that many abilities.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: June 13, 2014, 01:14:16 AM
Seems to me like this is basically Borderlands.  I did a mission solo then some quests and then a new area opened where you have to be with a group of 3.  Gear is colored like WoW and there's a hub for players I've just started exploring.

That seemed to clearly be the intention from all the "one last time" dialogue in the trailer and the subtitle of the damned game.

The "one last time" thing is an action story trope though, and is rarely taken literally. As for the title, it most likely refers to the story that was hinted at with the previous trailer, leading Drake on the trail of a thief who did meet his end. Of course, it could also talk about both of them, though I suspect it's meant as a red herring to increase the story's dramatic tension. I really doubt Drake will die in this game. Sully maybe, but not Drake, and even that I doubt. These stories are too light-hearted, and their tone would change too much if their final destination was the hero's death.

Druckman did say he wanted to kill Elena in UC2. Now that he's back and fresh off acclaim in TLoU maybe he's gonna go hog wild and off people!

Doesn't the remote play go from the PS4 to the router and then to the Vita?

I think it supports both going through a router and communicating directly with the Vita. You can change between the two methods at will. Using the router is supposed to be more effective though (which is kind of strange).

Yeah it supports both and neither seems to work.  Alas for another thread!  I was just venting.

That's cool, but remote play is a given with Vita so it doesn't blow my mind.

Yeah, I kind of expected that. It seems many people forget about the Remote Play capabilities though, so I just checked if you had too.

Quote
What I want is a Valkyrie Chronicles game on the Vita, now that would blow my mind. Or a new R&C or even Jak & Dexter.

They did announce a remake of the first R&C at the conference. I never played any of those games, so that's good news for me at least.

Argh why can't I get remote play to work even in my own house 10 feet away from the PS4.  Boo-urns to remote play, I say.

I gotta say Microsoft is making it a lot easier than sony on seeing everything they had to offer in the press conferences today.  I got home fired up my xbone and all the trailers plus the e3 presentation were right there to the right of the home screen.  I watched and enjoyed many of them.

I fired up the PS4 and checked the whats hot area, nothing.  I fire up the store and figure out that i need to download an E3 app.  Download the App and look for trailers.  I see something called trailers but I can't launch it.  The only thing I can launch is the e3 presentation.  Launching that launches the web browser and shows the presentation mid stream (even thought it's already over, I guess they are re-running the stream and I just have to get lucky and catch it from the beginning at some point?).  I go to my computer and watch trailers on youtube instead. 

Winner for ease of accessing the E3 info: Microsoft...

I think overall there were more things on the microsoft presentation I was interested in.  But I don't think many were exclusives.



Agreed the ps4 e3 app has been useless

Added Synopsis:

Quote
Several years after his last adventure, retired fortune hunter, Nathan Drake, is forced back into the world of thieves. With the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. His greatest adventure will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.

From PS BLOG:

Quote
That’s Nathan Drake rendered in full 1080p glory, using the power of our PS4 engine. All footage you see in the trailer was captured completely in engine. We’re targeting 60fps for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and as you can see, the visual fidelity for our character models will reach new heights. In fact, thanks to the power of PS4, right now Drake’s Uncharted 4 model is over double the polygons of Joel from The Last of Us PS3.

The next generation of Nathan Drake is going to be very real and will explore what it means when Drake is forced back into the world of thieves. He will embark on a globe-trotting journey in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure. It’s his greatest adventure yet and will test his physical limits, his resolve, and ultimately what he’s willing to sacrifice to save the ones he loves.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is available for pre-order right now. Stay tuned — we’ll have more information in the coming months.

I think it should be available on the app they released for PS4.  Might want to check psblog too.

Not sure anyone won this year.  Looks like most of the awesome is 2015.

Yeah, the majority of big stuff is next year at the earliest.  Which is a bummer.

Is Destiny this year?  Thought it was and if so that would be a big game for 2014.

Yeah Sept 9

And, in a huge twist of irony, Drake has crash landed on the island from Tomb Raider.
