Eh, it's mostly kept to this thread.

That doesn't really make things better. The hostility generated in this thread is bound to spill over into other threads (and has already in some cases), and it creates pointless barriers between the members of our community.

So on my new post-patch starting world, there seems to be more ore.   In fact... I got gold ore within steps of where I first beamed down.

Did they mean to do this or did I get lucky?

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.

I wonder how many dungeon possibilities they have put into this thing.    I know there are 10 levels of planets or something like that.    100 levels of monsters and equipment.   etc.

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

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.

I don't even know what to say to your habit of assuming Sony is infallible no matter what.  It has carried over from the console war apparently.

hacked accounts used in fraudulent activity

PS4 has sold over 2 million units.   You don't have to go to war for them anymore.

So far I'm loving it, BUT:

I have run into an identical building on two different worlds, as well as a village with pretty much identical layout and beings. For a supposedly procedural game, that seems a bit off.

this looks fun too, might try it as well.  http://store.steampowered.com/app/257050/
I've been watching videos of this one and it seems pretty similar, minus the planet hopping aspect. Almost bought it before Starbound went early access.

Darkout works (I bought it like 6 months or so ago via Desura) but there's something just 'off' about its core engine. Too much 'lag' between people swinging your way and hitting and such. I should fire it up again and see how it is nowadays.

Totally continuing to love Starbound though. I made a base of sorta on a level 7 Forest planet, beat the first 'boss', and now I can explore even more of the galaxy if I want to. Or wait for some more beta updates.

Decisions, decisions...

Dude... you are exploring level 7 planets and beating bosses?    You are way ahead of me.

AA is using sarcasm to rip that reviewer a new one because he thinks he's an idiot.

Ok... so I jumped to another planet.  This one is arid and has a lot of copper and coal deposits.  It gets cold at night and I have to huddle around a campfire to stay alive.  I stumbled across an underground base belonging to some bizarre looking life forms.  They were aggressive, so I wiped them out and stole all of their goods.   They had some great stuff, including tents and floodlights that I can use for base camps.   I looted a lot of pixels.  If they had possessed beam weapons I wouldn't have been able to take them, but they didn't so I was victorious.

Packing up now to jump to another planet.   I'm staying on level 1 planets for now.   I was able to craft some copper armor - not a complete set.  More later!   
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 06, 2013, 01:46:31 AM
Well I did all I could do on the first planet.   Fueled up my ship and made the jump to a level 2 planet.   I'll report back in after going planet side.

Forested planet.   Purple hue to the ground.  No signs of civilization yet.   Aggressive birds and a small pokemon looking creature that is very tough and has sent me to the regen chamber twice.  Going to venture further from beam down area.

Entry 3:

WOW.  Ok this planet IS inhabited.   Encounted aggressive robots with shield technology and laser guns.   Had to beam out to avoid death.    There was an underground facility of some sort that I didn't get a chance to explore.
Unsure if these robots were devices of some carbon based life form, or if the robots themselves were sentient.   These are unlike the (peaceful)humanoid robotic sentient life on my starter planet.  These robots rolled on wheels and immediately threw up shields when they saw me.    More investigation to come unless I deem it too dangerous for my current tech levels.

Entry 4:

The wheeled robots were some sort of sentry for humanoid unfriendly aliens who have technology much more advanced than I do.   I tried to make contact and was blown to pieces.  Time to fuel up and leave this planet.
97  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 05, 2013, 02:06:30 PM
I'm really enjoying this one.  I'm intrigued about having to craft equipment to survive on some of the more inhospitable planets.  I love being able to beam back to the ship when I get into trouble.  I am excited to gather fuel and set out across the universe to see strange new worlds.

Lots of potential here!
98  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 05, 2013, 03:43:48 AM


Upon further investigation, the sentient medieval civilization that is near my landing spot is robotic in nature.   They have robotic livestock and grow metal based crops.    Very peaceful though.  I've robbed their chests blind.
99  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starbound on: December 05, 2013, 01:58:05 AM


So I beamed down to my starting planet and happened to be within walking distance of a sentient species that appears to be in the medieval age.   They were peaceful but warned me not to try anything.   There was both peaceful and aggressive animals about as well.

Very cool so far.

Edit: Now with source.

Before you strut around peacock proud, let's wait for the global sales for Xbone.

Those folks are what the console systems (both of them) call friends.   They can message you and game with you.   Usually it's someone you know or who knows you.

Hope that helps.

Meaningless stat, and I'm not sure how accurate anyways.  Black Friday is pretty much irrelevant when both consoles launched within two weeks of it,  I doubt this has any meaningful impact on the November sales numbers.  Has MS even broken 1 million in the US yet?


LOL seriously?   They broke 1 million in the first 24 hours....

All in all very happy with the Xbone's overall feature set, capabilities and potential, though slightly disappointed at the kind of "beta" state of things.

That's the exact thought i was getting with a lot of people's impressions

Yeah, I honestly think they were rushed to market to compete with the PS4 launch. I believe that they were originally targeting a Spring 2014 launch, but had to move that up....hence the sort of beta state of the OS. It will get better (it has too) and the games themselves are very good. Ryse looks better than anything on either console. I mean, it's incredible and the only game on either system to make me say "this is true next gen". I don't know how they did it, but MS needs to let all the 3rd parties know what that team did to make it look so good on the XB1.

Sounds like I need to add Ryse to my Santa list?

Well, here are some more impressions of the system after a lot more time with it and the games.

It's a very good, but not great system. As before, my main complaint is the UI. It's needlessly complicated and complex. It really shouldn't be this hard to get around on the system. Also, why is EVERYTHING an app?? I mean come on, settings are an APP? Ugh. I do like the Activity Feed though. It's much better than the "What's New" menu on the PS4.

The exclusive games though, are very good. Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Ryse are awesome. I really love Dead Rising 3. It's pretty much worth owning the system for, IMO. The sheer number of Zombies on screen is incredible. I don't like the microtransaction system in Ryse though, or the one that I have heard about in Forza. Come on, I just spend $60 bucks for the game, don't nickel and dime me MS!!!

As for the multiplats, I'm sticking with the PS4 for those. They look better on there and most of my friends are now on the PS4. Still, the XB1 has nothing to be ashamed about on that front. All the games look good, just not quite as good as the PS4 versions look.

Luckily, both my PS4 and XB1 have not had any hardware problems. Thank goodness.

Anyway, I'm happy I got a XB1. Dead Rising 3 makes it all worth it. smile

Hetz I'm with you there.   I'm taking the same strategy about cross console releases. AC4 will be on PS4, NBA2K is on PS4, and Madden is PS4.

The exception I make is COD and multiplayer games I want to play with the usual GT crew. I'll get those on Bone.   Also exclusives obviously.

The interface is a bit bewildering, but there feels like there's more next gen stuff on this box.  The voice commands have worked extremely well for us.   My wife is in love with this feature because she can just say Xbox On and the whole damned system comes up without her having to wrestle with turning them on.  At night she's laying in bed tired and just says Xbox turn off, and boom...everything including the TV and Cable box turns off.    

I love that when she walks in the room and starts asking me a question I can just say 'Xbox mute' and boom.... I'm muted without having to pause or find a safe place to recover the remote.

We really need to have some multiplayer DR3 sessions between GTers.      I haven't played it multiplayer yet.
113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Xbox One] Games with Gold. on: November 27, 2013, 05:02:26 PM

What do you think of the Bone?    You have a PS4 like I do, and also a Bone.   You decided to get the Bone on the eve of launch.   What are your impressions after playing it over the weekend?

So, it turns out my issue is a known issue and they need to send me a replacement.  frown  At least they are sending it to me immediately as an advance exchange and then I send my broken one back, but that's still a really shitty launch experience.

According to the replacement support lady I talked with, this issue (getting stuck updating around 79%) is really common for them tonight and they're just replacing the systems whole hog no questions asked.

So, I checked the status of this today and apparently the support lady was not quite so nice and instead put me in for a Standard Exchange instead of the Advance.  Which means it may take up to 2 weeks to get my new console...

 crybaby


As Leo posted on the last page MS are giving free games to those affected from the Disc Drive of Doom,however if your Xbox Bricked Engine you don't get to play on your purchase either,i would ring Customer Support up again,explain everything and demand your free game

Yeah, and if still unresponsive, I would make sure to (very nicely) explain to them that you will be sure to use the 2 weeks you have to wait to go on every single gaming site, article comment section, and forum you can find to rail against the Xbox One and advise people to save their money.

Nicely.   Always be a gentleman.

I'm going for a Seinfeld approach here when he was renting the car and they didn't hold a standard size for him.   They asked him if he wanted insurance and he very nicely said 'yeah you better give me the insurance because I'm going to beat the hell out of this thing'.

I will say the controller was AWESOME. Like the 360 but the sticks feel way better. Why oh why can't Sony give up the horrifically bad Dualshock design?! I am still yet to see a playable demo for either system anywhere, so I still haven't had a chance to hold the DS4.

If you had, you would know that they DID give up on the horrifically bad Dualshock design. The PS4 controller is excellent.

They still have the left stick in the position that is not my personal preference so I remain skeptical, but I would like to pick one up and feel it for myself.
Fixed that for you. Essentially, the controller difference is down to personal preference now.

Nah not really.   The Bone controller wipes the floor with even the improved DS4.    I could play the hell out of some Knack with the Bone controller.
