1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: Today at 02:36:35 PM
I think it's worth mentioning that the majority of the stuff I watched in the trailers for the game occurred very early in the game so far.    So in other words I have a great feeling that I wrapped up the first portion of the game and thus have vast amounts of content left to explore that I have no clue about.
2  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/ps4] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on: May 20, 2015, 12:15:35 PM

Couple thoughts:

1.  The PS4 version looks fantastic.   They did a great job of squeezing it to the max.    Not regretting having to go with this over the PC from the looks standpoint.
2.  The story hooked me within 5 minutes.   I had Dragon Age for two months with multiple attempts to play it and it never once hooked me.      These guys know how to tell stories and create a world
3.  I think the single character focused combat just works better for this style of RPG with this style of perspective

Can't wait to get home tonight and put more time in.

Looking at the required specs, I think I'm going to have to play this one on the PS4.    My computer is officially dated.

I wish there was a tool or something to know how well your PC will handle this game.    I'm down between PS4 and PC.   I love games like this on the PC, but my system might be aging to get the most out of it now.   

I'm running with:

i5-2500K 3.3GHz 3.60 GHz
8 GB RAM
GTX 570

As cool as Bloodbourne appears to be, I think I'll just sit on the sideline and continue to wish someone would make one of these awesome looking games (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Lords of the Fallen, etc.) with an Easy mode for those of us who are action-game-challenged and aren't motivated by a sheer wall of frustration in our games.   crybaby

Yeah, I may not wish so much for a straight Easy mode but I do wish somebody would make a game like this without all the BS.  Fix the camera in tight areas so I don't have cheap deaths, or the forced death to the first monster, or the fact that you have to see the boss (and almost always die) before you can even level up the first time so you lose all that progress, tell me what my stats actually do, or just all the things they just refuse to tell you, all the design choices that in any other game would be criticized as total garbage. 

You'd be wrong then.   I've testing it myself and the bug is real.

Wrong about which part?


Sorry I quoted the wrong message.    The part about the bug being bullshit.    Tilt is wrong as usual.

The co-op in this game has taken a step back from the Souls games.   There's zero incentive to help people, so I can ring my bell forever and nobody shows up to help me with the boss.    I might as well burn, smash, and then discard the bell over a cliff because that's about how useful it is.
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: March 26, 2015, 08:39:41 PM

Am I missing something with this game?    The combat seems totally flat, the plot is either boring or too confusing, and most of the activities in the game seem to be "mark X on map, go to X, attack something or read a book, and go back to camp".     When I actually DO get to combat, I'm just hitting the trigger button over and over S.L.O.W.L.Y eating an enemies health down.   The only interaction I'm getting is positioning my character and and making sure I hit the potion button when my health gets low.

I am usually very forgiving with games.   I like games that have been given mediocre scores.    THIS game, however, got good scores and I can't remember a time when I was more bored with a title.   

What in the hell are you people seeing in this that I'm not?   This never happens to me!

I guess I need to go down to the store and buy another overpriced controller if I want to enjoy Dragon Age Inquisition.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS4 controller on: February 15, 2015, 01:16:18 AM

It started happening playing Farcry.    I would try to look up and it would move all the way so that I was looking at the ground.    Then it would stop doing it for a bit and be ok.... then it would start doing it again.   
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS4 controller on: February 14, 2015, 03:49:55 AM
My PS4 controller has recently started acting wonky.    When I press up, the view goes down.    It doesn't happen every single time, but when it does I have to let go of it and press up again, or roll the stick around to the side towards up.

Is this the controller starting to break?  It's highly annoying, and I haven't "heavily" played the PS4, so if it's physically breaking I'm way disappointed that it has happened this soon.

14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / This is why games should be returnable on: December 26, 2014, 05:02:30 PM
Wife got me Madden NFL 15 for Christmas.   I played several games yesterday with no problem.   Suddenly one of the games aborted to PS4 menu.   Now any time I try to resume that game, or start a new game, Madden freezes.   It doesn't freeze during their repetitive game intro sequences... just EVERY time when the control is turned over to the player to receive or kick.    BAM.   Hard lockup.  

I've tried multiple things to delete save game files, profile, etc.    I've now removed the game completely and reinstalled and I'm about to try to play again.    If it freezes again like this I'm not sure what recourse I have?   She bought a $60 game that is mechanically or fundamentally flawed from a coding standpoint?    It's legalized godd*** theft is what it is.

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.

22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 29, 2014, 03:38:34 AM

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?
24  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 28, 2014, 12:35:57 PM

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.
25  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.

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.
27  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.

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.

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?

40  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.
