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?

6  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.

Got mine tonight.  Waiting to try it until kids are asleep.

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.

I guess it's ok looking.    Nothing compared to Titanfall on the Xbone though.
16  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.

Titanfall is EXCLUSIVE on the Xbox One among consoles.

When do the PS4 exclusives start rolling out?   I really want to spend more time with the system, but so far the exclusives have mostly been over in Xbox One's corner for me (Ryse, Titanfall, Dead Rising).

Yea that Titanfall exclusive...I guess all that MS PR does work on people thinking its only on Xbox One.

When 100% of my multiplayer partners are playing on the One, it's as exclusive as if there never was a PC version.

Infamous out on March 21.

Also, Killzone and Knack have been out (and I like both).

As with previous Killzones, I could not get into it no matter how much I tried.   Graphics were awesome, but the story just fell flat to me.

Good to hear about Infamous.   I'm super excited about that one!

27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: February 18, 2014, 12:59:24 AM


I had a glitch in the matrix tonight.   Was playing Ryse and hit the X button and had to run out of the room for 5 mins.   Came back and the TV screen was blank.   I couldn't see anything but black but I could issue my Xbox One commands and hear myself move around the unseen menu.   Nothing worked to get the display back.  I couldn't see TV, rebooting didn't work, etc.   

On a whim I powered off and forced it into low resolution and it came back up in super low rez where I could see.   I then reset my settings to 1080p and all was fine.

Any ideas what this was all about?

Same here with: EVE Online. I actually played it for 3 months back in 2011.. and it was engrossing. The problem is that to truly get into EVE Online, you've to become committed to it. Play it every day, find a well-organized guild, train your skills for many months, become agressive about raising ISK (money) and resources. It's truly a 'massive' game.. But one you simply can't play casually. I left EVE to play League Of Legends... and that one has been my *ahem* addiction ever since.

I'm giving it another go.   Again.   Another one.   

We'll see how it turns out.

Maybe they overwhelm you, take too much commitment, or perhaps you are afraid of trying them and sucking so hard that you feel dominated before you even try.   What are the games you wish you could get into, but haven't or won't for whatever reason?

Mine:

-- Eve Online
-- DOTA (1 or 2)

Quite a few people who are without faith sure seem to be militantly so, and militantly paranoid that any comment is some sort of an affront to their non-belief.

Some of you guys have religion, you just don't realize it.   It's the religion of non-belief.

Eve Online (I keep trying this over the years but get overwhelmed almost immediately and quit.   might try again)

Well I for one will definitely be getting cross-platforms on PS4 (once I get one) until MS achieves some approximation of parity. The difference would be for multiplayer games, since most of my friends went XB1.

Exactly my approach.

Microsoft "lost" their last two console gens  icon_confused.... or did you mean "one more"



Not sure what you mean by that.

Quote from: Roguetad on December 17, 2013, 08:38:26 PM

I love this game.  Ubisoft succeeded in creating an open world pirate game that's incredibly fun to play, especially when heading out to do some unscripted pirating.  It's funny that the AC'ish parts of the game are actually the weakest parts of the overall experience.  The pirate parts are mostly brilliant, with an obvious love of the lore put into the smallest details.  Edward is a fun character to play, who isn't trying to follow any creed or code of honor
Spoiler for Hiden:
(for most of the game)


They really need to breathe some fresh air into the AC components of the gameplay going forward.  The stealth missions in AC4 were mostly frustrating and not fun.  Eavsdropping was almost never fun.  While I thought the combat was awesome at first, it gets way too easy now that they put a little circle over enemy heads so that the player can easily time counter kills.  Just like in previous AC titles, enemies will politely wait their turn to attack, which seems silly when they have Edward encircled.

They should spin off the pirate experience into a seperate franchise line.  Maybe incorporate a Viking experience into that line too.  Open world sailing, raiding, upgrading ships, weapons, conquering towns, etc.  Take all of the AC stuff out.         
   

Spoiler for Hiden:
Little things like Blackbeard having the lit fuses under his hat (something that the real Blackbeard did to intimidate people).   Anne Bonny, one of the few real female pirates that didn't pose as a man, and who also came up from being a barmaid, etc.     They really nailed the lore.
