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!

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)

WoW
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.

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.

My wife got me a Skullcandy SLYR headset for Christmas.   I plugged it into the PS4 and the volume was dreadfully low.   I cranked the volume up to max on the little remote controller thing and still no luck.   I went into settings and the volume for the device showed at 50%, so I jacked it up to 100% and then it couldn't let me 'save' the settings.    Meaning every time I backed out of that screen and came back in they were at 50% still, and the headset never got any louder.

So I thought unplugging it (USB) from the PS4 and plugging it back in might help, but every time I did this the volume seemed to get even quieter without me being able to get the volume back up.

Any ideas?    My wife is pretty upset because her two big gifts for me seemed to have turned out to be busts (she got me a Pebble watch too that was dead on arrival).



Hmmm I'm using my Astro a40s with no problems.

Those connect via USB?   The Skullcandy had a USB connector, but also had two AV type connectors that were next to useless and made it unwieldy.

Don't worry Zeke.   I've seen them popping in and out of stock.   If a parent really wants to get one for their kid, they can.   They just have to be diligent and get up early.

When I've been in BB lately and hear people asking about either console they get the same story - while supplies may come in during the week, they only put them out for sale on Sunday morning. And they all sell... but no clue what that means as to quantity / console. Heck, I couldn't even find accessories for the XBone - was looking for a Play and Charge kit and ending up at Amazon and waiting 10 days before they could get it to me.

They kind of started this when the Wii and PS3 were on the shelves.    The pile up stock through the week and get a kick out of seeing people lined up in the cold on Sunday mornings.

I have seen both XB1 and PS4 pop into stock briefly before disappearing quickly around the B'ham Alabama area.    I'm guessing it's the same most places.

Edit:  And I might add that I had a strange instinctive urge to purchase one when I saw it even though I already own both.    Gamer instincts or something?

Just my theory.

given the name, I'd hope this was an accidental case of oversensitivity.  not sure about the rest of you, but I don't often discuss my game systems by name while I'm in the same room.  I can only think of a few instances where that would come up. 

One of my kids' name is Xbox, so it really causes some serious confusion.

Damnit Sony, get your network security shit together.

That's what they're doing. Have you heard about anyone actually getting hacked this time? They're being safe rather than sorry.

Seriously?

Seriously.

You know that thing you're doing right now? Yes, that thing. Stop. Just stop.


This response is as cute as it is predictable.   I know you take your "Defender of Sony!" role seriously, but you can't honestly say that Sony hasn't had some serious big-time security problems in the recent past.   The news releases cite suspicious activity and thus many many people were prompted to change their passwords (including me).

I can't remember the last time I had this problem with just about any service I use be it Blizzard, Steam Microsoft, etc.   I can, however remember going through credit card statements when Sony was storing our passwords on a dinner napkin just a couple years ago.    Sony needs to get their network security shit together, pure and simple.   

Now go happily play Knack instead of coming up with cutesy arrogant responses to legitimate concerns.

Guys, since this game is offered through Steam how would I get it for my son?

In other words, I am playing it on my computer from my steam account.   My son got interested watching me, but I'm not sure how I would get it onto his computer so he could play at the same time.   Do I need a separate Steam account?   I'm ok with buying the game again, but I'm unsure how that works.

Eventually this
http://store.steampowered.com/sharing/

But you probably just need to buy it for him.

But how does that work?   Do I open a new steam account and DL steam to his computer?   Or do I log in with my steam account on his computer and use my account?    I'm confused by this.
