Graphical differences between PS4 and Xbone?     Deciding which to preorder.

Just an FYI since I know how some people can be the Goon Squad is on Warbringer, there primary faction is dominion.

My first and only try so far in the online hacking had been a disaster.

As soon as I was in the other person's game, I saw him head straight towards my area on a motorcycle and started profiling and promptly found me. I hadn't been able to start the hack yet, nor do any kind of set up. Then I tried to get away and he ran me over, lol.

Maybe I'll try again later.

Bad luck. I had an opponent come running straight for me too, but I pretended to be an NPC, and he didn't profile me. I placed a hack on him myself and went into hiding immediately afterwards.

Your opponent will get no warning that you're in his game until you start to hack him. His only clue may be that the game won't allow him to start any missions while you're there. It's the same way with tailing missions too, except that he'll never even know you were in his supposedly single-player game unless you screw it up. Your target was quite likely as surprised as yourself when he profiled you and realized that you were an actual human being.

This is my main problem with Invasion.  It's a form of forced PvP and while I have no qualms about PvP I'd rather do it when I want and not when someone decides to invade my single player experience

edit- Glenn Beck claims that Watch_Dogs teaches people to hack into your phone/tablets in real life.   icon_eek

To be fair, Glen Beck wasn't saying that it literally teaches you HOW to hack.   He's saying that it is teaching children that a world where you hack into people's private lives is normal and you can actually be the hero doing so.   

Quote
"The idea here is they are teaching you to hack and then become the ultimate voyeur in other people's lives, including their bedrooms, by hacking into their phones and everything," Beck said during a segment on violence in video games. Beck noted earlier on in the show that game series' Call of Duty had been said to teach the perpetrator of the 2011 Norway attacks how to shoot to kill.

"This game is teaching you to hack into whatever is docked in your bedroom. What the heck is wrong with us? What are we thinking? We are inviting this into our home and our lives. We are teaching our kids for entertainment purposes," Beck continued.

And per my dad who was in Army is Strategic Planning, video games actually ARE teaching us to be able to shoot to kill.   Prior to video games, the vast majority of battlefield small arms enemy casualties were taken by less than 10% of soldiers.   The vast majority of soldiers intentionally never fired their small arms or when they did they would shoot to miss.     After several generations of kids growing up on video games, the population has not become more violent because of it, but soldiers on the battlefield are far more likely to shoot to kill and actually use their firearms for that purpose.

This is a mildly fun but rather plain vanilla game.   The problem is that it will sell a quadrillion copies because people on the new consoles are desperate for new games.

Have you guys decided which faction or whatever you are going to play?

I'm going to have one character on a PVP server, and one on a PVE server.    Faction?   Not sure yet....  haven't decided on that piece.    You think most people are going to flock towards the good guys, or the empire/dominion?

I'm having fun, but this game does not strike me as next gen in any way.    It feels like I could easily fire this up on my PS3 and wouldn't see much difference.
10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 27, 2014, 06:15:20 PM

Yeah I'm going to trust Ron on this one.   If he's been addicted to it the last four days, there is a good chance I will too.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 27, 2014, 04:03:08 PM

I hate it when games are all over the board in reviews.   It totally throws me off in deciding whether to buy it or not.    Ron loving it further complicates my decision.   If he hated it, I'd already have marked it off the list.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 27, 2014, 11:49:35 AM

Normally the 80 scores would be throwing me off of this game right now, but Ron's review is the one I trust.    Picking it up today.

Watch Dogs PS4 pending reviews.     If they aren't excellent, I'm out.    I have Wildstar early access beginning Saturday.

[Edit] I deleted all my comments

This is becoming quite the pattern with you. Over the last 6 months or so, you've posted some particularly vile (and I do mean vile) stuff, particularly about me as a person, and then deleted it afterwards. Do you really think people don't notice this?

There's drama here because you create it. End of story.

Incorrect.    You know exactly what you are doing, and you toe that line so precisely that it's almost a form of art.   Bravo that you can get away with it and even garner some supporters along the way rather than get the warning you truly deserve.

I admit that I'm a loose cannon on forums at times, but a person that can cause Yellowking to get enraged has truly accomplished a feat.   Those of you that have been around these forums (Gaming Trend and OO) for years know this if you stop and think about it long enough.

I do not trust games where the embargo lifts the same day it launches.   I have no problem marching into Gamestop on Tuesday and canceling my $5 preorder if this isn't a great game.   Wildstar begins Saturday anyway.

DAMNIT.    I went and preordered at my local Gamestop.   Little did I know that the stupid early access code they gave out with boxed preorders is for 3 days early access and not the 5 days for digital.    mad

I didn't know this until I entered my early access code via my account.   Can I cancel my preorder and instead preorder digitally and enter the new 5 day early access code on the same account?

I thought originally the Imperial Edition got 5 days early access and the Standards got 3 days.  I went to the website and they changed it , now both give 5 days.  Most other sites (amazon) are still listing it as a 3 vs 5 depending on the version.  I wonder if they've just decided to open 5 days early for everyone and that hasn't filtered out to the other sites? Or maybe it's just incentive to pre-order directly through ESO.

I contacted ESO support.   They said just cancel my Gamestop order and order the digital copy through them.    The boxed copies only get a 3 day head start.   Digital gets 5.   It's to encourage digital sales for some reason.

I did love it.   My only complaint is that there is not enough separation between being good and being evil.  It's only minor differences and your appearance really doesn't change.  I think they could have done a LOT more with this, and I seem to remember the first game being more stark in this regard.

Ok I'm really confused as to why the reviews were so mixed on this game.   It's easily a 90 range game, and unless it collapses at the end it could be a system seller.    Does it get really repetitive or something?

25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: March 22, 2014, 05:17:52 AM

So far I'm liking it a lot.  If the combat improves with stronger powers it could turn from like to love.

The metascore has dropped to 80%.     Not even close to a system seller and borderline purchase for me.   I usually only get titles that are 85 and above.

Uh huh, sure you do.   Roll Eyes  Can you quit this barely disguised console warrior nonsense already?


I've said here many times that I only spend money on games that are high meta scores.   I think I said so in the PC thief thread.   I bought that one anyway because of my love for the previous games.

Honestly, the company needs to lift the release date at this point. This scenario is exactly why release dates were enacted in the first place. Since the date has clearly been broken in a widespread way, they need to just come off of it.

The new headset adapter for the XB1 will probably get your headset working for chat.  I agree it's stupid to have to pay $25 for another doohickey for it, but it got my older gen Astro A40 headset working fine.

Thanks wonderpug.   Looking up this doohickey.

35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Headsets and the next generation on: March 14, 2014, 12:55:15 AM

Ok this has been bugging the CRAP out of me.   Neither system has headsets that you can just plug in and get sounds + chat as easy as just plugging in.   My poor wife got me a PX4 headset (not cheap!) for Christmas and I managed to stand on my head and turn around three times and get it to work on the PS4.    I'm still not sure if chat works over it yet (haven't tried it).   

I tried to plug the PX4 into the Xbox One today, and the sound works nicely.   Problem?   NO CHAT over the damned headset.   Instead they want me to talk into my Kinect?   wtf?

Is there a headset out there that works with BOTH?    For the love of God this is one of the basic, easy things and neither company is making it easy.

If you don't want to be seen as a participant of the console war, stop being a champion warrior of one side even to the extent of coming into the thread of the console YOU DON'T OWN and posting an 8 paragraph essay about it.    

I'm sure this post will be replied to with:

Still don't understand the need of people who only own the PS4 to dick wave every time someone mentions anything that could detract from-- in their mind -- the honor of the mighty PS4.
