I have no idea why I added Planetary Annihilation to my haul, but I did.  By many accounts, it's not all that great.  However, the chance to buy a game that's normally 60 bucks (or higher, as the initial buy in was) for 17 bucks was just too tempting.

ya same here, it's kinda boring.

Is this worth $9.99?

SR4 is a STEAL at $9.99. Buy it. Play it. Love it.

I guess my reservation is that I never finished SR3...  I'm not sure why.  I don't think it was as good as GTA, but not bad.  I also still have Watch Dogs to finish.  I'm about halfway done with that.

i'm looking at some ebay auctions for The Show.  I'min no rush.  

I heard about the PS4 Vita bundle didn't see it at any stores I was at.  I was toying with getting the PS4 Destiny Bundle and just wait, but there's really not a huge savings, and I'd rather have the PS4 as black and not white.  

(insert ATB's That's Racist GIF)

Wolfenstein is fun, but man I had some frustrating moments already in the first level.  Jumping out of that plane, it tells me to sprint and jump. I followed their instructions and I kept dying and dying over and over again.  FPS games are better for me on PC games, but I'm liking it.  

I think I'm going to just rent games until Destiny comes out.  I don't expect this to be my primary game system.

well, I did it.  I bought it.  Birthday came around, and I sold my xbox 360 a month back, and figured, I have nothing else I want to buy, and money has a hard time sitting in my wallet.  Updating now.  Picked up Wolfenstein for $39.  Want to get MLB the Show, but it's not on sale.  So I'll wait on that.  And I'll wait for the games that are supposed to hit next year.

Come back when you've watched the whole thing.  It's decidedly less obvious.

One thing that struck me about the MS conference, but I forgot to mention it:  MS played nice with Sony at the start, including them by name in a "we're all in it together" kind of moment.

We'll see if that has any effect on Sony's tone.  If they went the same route as last year, it might seem like bullying.  MS appears humbled, and Sony had better be careful not to stomp 'em too hard.

I took that as, PLEASE DONT HUMILIATE US AGAIN.

after thinking about it more and reading more about the deal, it's basically $10 million a year, which is what I thought was what he should get, not $18 million.  And should he meet the goals he could make an extra $10 million a year.  That should motivate him.

While I like the guy, I think it's stupid to pay him that much.  He's a great athlete and is exciting to watch when he runs, but he needs to learn to read the field.  Alex Smith had this problem, and he was worse because he didn't have the legs to use to escape like Kap does. 
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: June 03, 2014, 06:20:21 PM
Weird, I feel the cop/bad guy chases are too easy.  I heard reviewers state it's hard to escape, but that hasn't been my experiences.  If I'm on foot, I'll die easily, but in a car, the world is my playground.  Hacking posts, steam pipes usually do the trick to allow me enough time to either escape or hide.  I've avoided cops and helicopters by hiding inside buildings like garages.  I've ditched cops by staying out of sight with the engine off and hiding while watching them go up and down the street with their spot lights and eventually call off the search.

I'm not saying I'm better.  I'm just not having the same experience.  With that said, I wish I had your experience with hacking people.  I never seem to be successful.

 Map packs have been amazing and 32v32 is the first 'next gen' thing I've experienced.

I don't think YellowKing was talking about graphics, actually. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he was referring to the experience beyond that. The new generation of consoles (I'd rather not call them next-gen. They're current-gen) can do lots of things with AI, complexity and persistence that Watch Dogs frankly doesn't. Still doesn't prevent it from being fun.

Edit: Bleh, after re-reading the above post, I realize my answer was superfluous. Ignore.

I addressed that I knew he was talking about gameplay and I responded to that.  But it's also been mentioned in the previous pages about Watch Dogs graphics not being Next Geny enough...

At some point during the last year, Watch Dogs was a must have for almost everyone, and somehow the perception changed, and what I hear people complain about makes no sense.  It's like they are trying to find something not to like just to not like it.  But the things they list doesn't match up.  Granted, it's all opinion, but their wrong opinions

It's not like the game is getting trashed. A metacritic score in the low 80s isn't exactly clearance-bin material.  icon_biggrin

The running theme in both the professional reviews and in this thread has been that the game is fun. The difference seems to be in how innovative/fun it is for a next-gen game. Some people think it's game of the year levels of fun, others (like me) think it's fun but nothing we haven't really seen before. I think this perception may depend on a lot of factors - how hyped you were, what other open world games you've played, E3 perception vs reality, etc.

I don't think there's any conspiracy - in fact, if anything the reviews have been remarkably consistent when taken as a whole.

Did you really think that Next-Gen is going to happen overnight, or right when the PS4 or Xbox1 was released?  It's a slow gradual process.  And that's graphically speaking. Just look back from the Xbox to Xbox 360 for proof.  There wasn't a lot difference between the two consoles at first.  Yes the hardware was better, but there was some considerable delay for the graphics to catch up.

Your above post is in terms of gameplay, and that's  a much more longer process than graphic progression.

Maybe it's because I play on the PC platform primarily, and I'm already accustomed to seeing better graphics that look "next-gen".  That's a laughable term, because, it's not next-gen, it's the consoles playing catch up to the PC counterparts.  It's the natural flow of gaming.  PC always looks the best, consoles catch up to a moderate PC build, and then a year or two later they are back to being behind again.    It's just the concept of people complaining about it not being next-gen is funny.  What is next gen to them?  CGI quality graphics now?  That may happen at some point, but it's not going to be done in the next iteration.  It's going to be done over time, like all graphical progressions.  20+ years ago we were playing in sprite based environments.  Before that text.  Overtime we have pushed the bar a little higher to what we see now, but next-gen doesn't mean OMG awesome graphics overnight!

There's some cussing, but nowhere near as bad and often as the GTA series.  I haven't seen anything regarding sex, other than some descriptions when you profile someone.  I heard you can spy on someone having sex but don't see anything.

I think the game is awesome.  Not sure why it gets so much hate.

Exactly.

I'm on the PC, and the graphics are really good.  The shadows needs work, but the lighting, textures, and all the details is over the top good.  The smoke effects are great. 

The gameplay is just as good as the GTA games, without the frustrations with the bad controls.  It's definitely much more polished (when on the the gamepad).

Voice acting seems really good and the characters are interesting.  Very similar to GTAV.

And what's best, no nigger that, no nigger this.  And the cussing is kept to the minimum. 

And like GTA, the world is believable.

At some point during the last year, Watch Dogs was a must have for almost everyone, and somehow the perception changed, and what I hear people complain about makes no sense.  It's like they are trying to find something not to like just to not like it.  But the things they list doesn't match up.  Granted, it's all opinion, but their wrong opinions smile
199  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: May 28, 2014, 08:31:56 PM
This whole Next Gen talk is ridiculous anyways.  You're not going to see a huge leap in graphics right away.  It's going to be a slow progression and it will cap off over time like it did with the previous generation.  The new systems finally look like what we've been seeing on the PC the last few years.  But they don't have a lot of room to grow, compared to the PC.  And that's becasues PC's are not bound to a specific design.  I haven't seen any game that came out for the XBox1 or PS4 looked leaps and bounds from the previous generation.  If anything it's a general improvement.   

This morning I read an article comparing the graphics between the xbox 1, ps4 and the PC.  I think it was linked here.  The article showed the same scene for each system, and you can barely tell the difference.  Sure if you really focus on one spot you'll see some blemishes, jaggies, different quality in shadows, and other things, but as a whole, there wasn't a lot of difference between the three systems.  But my point is, I thought all versions looked great based on the quality level displayed in the article.  Having it on the PC, I know it looks better when using the higher settings.  But you need a beefy video card for that. 

With all of that said, I hope the drivers I downloaded last night fixes my stuttering issue when driving.  I also learned from that article that the Ultra Texture settings if for video cards that have 3 GB of ram or more.  I only have 2.  So I'm reducing that to High.

FYI - I've turned off Invasion

With uPlay down, it's down too, so it doesn't matter what you have it set to. Tongue

Still really enjoying this. Also starting to get annoyed when the game just hitches and hitches BADLY (on the PC). It doesn't skip frames when it gets really, really bad - it just starts to take longer and longer to draw them. I don't know what the hell is going on. I do know my PC can definitely handle it though, so it's not that (and yes, I have the latest NVidia drivers released like today for this game).

On the flip side, the game is so much fun. I love being chased by somebody, as I can turn the entire city into a weapon (raise the Blockers just as I pass by them, or flip a traffic light as the insane citizens don't see if the cross-street is clear before hitting the gas, or other random fun things) to escape. Also I love sneaking around in places where I shouldn't be, headshotting people with my silenced pistol to get them out of my way.

All in all, the AI is fun to mess around with. biggrin

ya the hiccuping is annoying.  My system can definetely handle this game.  It's smooth on foot, but hiccupy when driving.
