Quote from: Ridah on November 11, 2014, 12:43:30 AM

I played the hell out of this at BlizzCon and will be posting my impressions soon. If you think Overwatch is anything like TF2 or any other shooter you've played before, you're absolutely wrong.

Nice teaser lol!  From what I saw it looked most like Monday Night Combat with much better fleshed out characters to me.  There was another game with a fantasy theme that it reminded me of too, but the name escapes me.

On the one hand Blizzard games have always been pretty compelling for me, but on the other as mentioned in other threads FPS is just not my genre.  I think the best I can hope for is that one of the characters will be different enough to fit/click with me.  This means a class that doesn't require a lot of jumping and aiming skills lol.

I'm rewatching season 1 on DVD as I missed a good 3rd of the episodes. Now about 2/3rds of the way through I have to say the writing has slipped a bit for season 3. Not enough to make me stop watching, but the scripts for new episodes definitely don't seem to be as good. I'm trying to separate whether it's just that I preferred the revenge themes or that I'm watching it without commercials, which I really dislike, but that aside the new writing does seem weaker.

I'm with you 2 on Felicity and last episode - really like her character and thought that was the best season 3 episode yet.

I think what made season 1 really click for me was the writing on the origin/island storyline.  In fact, aside from shirtless Amell porn, that was really what kept me watching the show.  I actually felt the flashback content was considerably stronger than the present day stuff.  Season 2 was a great blend of both present day action and flashbacks, and they created a very compelling main villain which drove the whole season.

This season is definitely the weakest in terms of flashback content, and the main plotline probably needs to start revving up too in terms of interesting villains.  All in all agreed the writing is lacking something.  Killing off Sarah seemed a bit desperate and unnecessary to me, but I guess it opened the door to give the other female characters more action.

It's natural to compare somewhat like -to- like, but heavily dwelling on what 2001 ASO, Inception, Contact and Close Encounters were, doesn't seem to be a solid good foundation for an honest review. I'm sure the film has its flaws, but none of the negative reviews I've read have been anywhere credible enough to make me want to wait until the BRD is here.

Definitely agree with that, and I'd highly recommend seeing it in the theaters on as big a screen as you can get to, just for the spectacle of some of the sequences.  I really wish I'd seen it in IMAX.  I ended up seeing a "35mm" presentation which I don't think really added much since the screen size was only moderate.

There are definitely things I felt could have been done better or differently, and some of the plot elements can be a bit hard to swallow, but it's still a fantastic film for science fiction fans in general.  The cast is superb and the acting is all around excellent, even coming from a non-Matthew McConeghey fan.

There were also a few shots of the water stream slicing the zombie skulls right in half.  It's already pretty well established that the zombie heads are near mush in this world anyway. 

OTOH, Sarge seems to have a habit of stabbing zombies in the chin, often while their mouths are wide open.  That doesn't seem like it'd be effective.

For the sex thing, I assume we're talking about Sarge and the inappropriately-dressed-for-the-apocalypse hottie (I assume she was a Hooters waitress before things went to hell).  That seemed out of left field to me, too, but I always assume I've forgotten something.

ahhhh ok I'll buy that (the hose thing).  Maybe I didn't watch close enough to see them getting split in half, that would have made much more sense to me had I noticed that.  Maybe it got blocked by the incessant anti-Directv banners lol.

Sex thing, I thought he was talking about Eugene's pervy voyeurism, not the Sarge with Rosita in general.  They were always established as a couple, at least I thought so.

My memory is clouded and sometimes I get details jumbled up with what I remember from the comics.  The Beth thing, I always presumed she was kidnapped away from Daryl.  The Eugene thing I thought they made pretty clear he was hot for Rosita but again maybe it's just an impression.  I'm glad they stuck with the same basic Eugene storyline; I thought I'd heard they were going to do something very different.

Overall I thought the episode was OK for the story progression, but uneven overall.  The fire hose thing seemed almost comical, and I really didn't get why the zombies were neutralized by the water.  Was it supposed to be because of the impact of the water hitting them?  The Sarge backstory felt like it was missing something (maybe a moment with his family before he flipped out?  and why was he in what appeared to be a medical facility?), and it bugged me the way he kept flipping out every other scene.  I always saw him as a "tough as nails" driven character, but not a loony loose cannon.  Glenn and Maggie are wasted with this group, and Fistbump Notcop (lol) is just lame.

I haven't read all the details on this thing, but even as a gadget whore I can't see it being particularly useful as is.  Now maybe I missed it, but I think what would make this more interesting is if it could interact and command/control other devices on your wireless network, in other words become the hub and interface to the 'internet of things". 

In addition you should be able to have multiple mini microphones you could add to each room.  So for instance I could walk into a room and verbally tell the lights to dim to a soft yellow hue (Philips Hue), turn the TV on, and tell Nest to set the temperature 2 degrees lower.  Now that would be slick.

Not necessarily.  Most are freemium but many are tailored so you really don't need to pay anything and can still get plenty of gameplay. Ditto on the downtime, it varies from game to game.  Finding one that suits your style can be a crapshoot, but because there are so many, it's also very possible that one exists. 

I'm generally surprised at just how many of these games are out there, and just how many people appear to be playing them.  It seems like an incredibly fractured audience for what's already a niche genre.  Of course I'm one of these people, maybe there are just like 100 of us and we all play every release that comes out lol.   paranoid

I can understand what Bullwinkle is saying.  Beth seemed upset with them from the very moment she woke up.  I can chalk some of that up to distrust in a post zombie world, but even when it wasn't clear they were creating a system based on indentured servitude, she was acting oddly recalcitrant.

Maybe I'm confused or remembering wrong, but didn't they just kidnap her out of the blue?  Wouldn't that be reason enough to wake up distrustful?

Also the banners I was referring to were likely only broadcast to current Directv customers.  Basically they had two large bars on top and bottom with a flashing message scrolling by, in the middle of the show.

I have a crazy compulsion to try out mobile MMORPGs.  I've lost count of how many I've tried.  The problem is I generally get into one for a few hours over a few days and then move on to the next.  It's like my PC MMO wandering on steroids. 

Just curious if anyone else ever gets into these and if you've ever found one you actually stayed and played in for any extended period of time.

56  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV]Gotham - Batman Prequel on: November 04, 2014, 06:01:08 PM
I'd say last night's episode was the best of the season, I enjoyed it from beginning to end.  For better or worse, the series seems to be playing out like the Penguin origin show, as he is the real standout character thus far.  His entire story arc has really been fantastic, and even though I'm not a big fan of the actor, I really like what he's done with the role.

I still have problems with the show as a whole.  I mean, the entire freaking police force and government is corrupt or under mob control, really?  I guess that gives Gordon a goal to work toward but it just seems a bit too much.  It's frustrating to have such a no-win setup where ideally you'd want a superhero to come in and work on it, but you know inherently is just isn't going to happen due to the show's premise/gimmick.  At this point I wouldn't even mind if they just said screw the comic storyline and just jumped that adorable little David Mazouz into a Batkid outfit.  Then have Batkid and Catgirl roam the city and kick mobster ass.   nod

Yeah you scared me off!  That and the annoying anti-Directv banners that kept running during the program.  Obviously I'm biased since I work for Directv, but regardless I don't think that's the way to make an attack, by fucking up your viewers' actual broadcast.

Anyway the episode was a nice change of pace even for a non-Beth fan, and the twist at the end was excellent.  After Daryl's mysterious comment (which doesn't really make sense after watching the episode), I honestly thought they were setting up the spinoff series and Beth would be the one carry-over to the new show.  The more the episode progressed, though, I was like, uhhh who else is going to the spinoff lol.

I'm enjoying the show more and more each week.  The one thing I thought was missing was a strong villain, which was addressed last night with the addition of Captain Cold.  It was great to see Wentworth Miller again, he's not the best actor but this kind of role suits him well.  I'm not familiar with the Flash comics, but I looked it up and I guess they are putting together the Rogues villain team.  Heat Wave, Weather Wizard and some others.  Kind of goofy but should add considerably to the fun factor.

Looks like it got a pretty bad review on the main site, curious what others thought.  I played a couple of hours and found it mildly amusing but not particularly engaging.  I suspect it's really targeted at a specific type of gamer.  If you evaluate it against conventional JRPGs it probably seems uninspired.  But as a fantasy world simulator, perhaps it's more successful since there aren't many other games of this type?  In some ways it seems like a MMORPG that's been ported into a single player game.

I can't explain how but the console versions look better than the PC version. Even on my PC at 1440p resolution and everything maxed, the game simply looks cleaner on consoles whereas the PC version maintains that painterly/slightly blurry look. Has anyone else noticed this?

Can't say I have... for me though it's a really huge difference so I never really tried to make the comparison.  On PC I'm playing close-up on a relatively smaller screen, so everything looks sharper and more detailed.  On PS4 I sit on the sofa much further back on a large screen so it's really different, I'm generally looking at much more of the overall picture.  

Is it possible it has to do with the settings on your TV?  Have you (or anyone else) compared the graphics on the same exact screen?

It got mostly poor reviews from what I saw, but maybe because of the lowered expectations I found the show quite enjoyable.  The main guy is a little annoying but all and all I thought they did a pretty good job with it.  Solid mix of humor, horror and fantasy elements with pretty decent makeup and special effects.  I thought it was more engaging than recent premieres from similar shows like Sleepy Hollow and Grimm, but of course since I liked it it will probably flop and get cancelled.

Way to wrap up the loose ends from previous episodes.  "I made you a promise" - vicious.   Interesting decision with the groups direction. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
Yeah, although I had to giggle when Michonne conveniently gets her samurai sword back.  Very comic book-y moment.

I'm a little annoyed that they are splitting up again.  I suspect it makes for easier/better TV this way so you don't run into the problem I mentioned earlier where they have too many side characters on the sideline doing nothing.  But realistically if you had a group this solid trying to survive the apocalypse, why would you ever want to intentionally break it up?
65  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV]Gotham - Batman Prequel on: October 23, 2014, 06:27:44 PM
I continue to have a weird relationship with this show.  I like the cast, I like the characters and the direction and most of the storylines, and generally enjoy the show when I'm watching it.  But then afterwards when I'm thinking about it or discussing with others, I get bothered.  I feel like I'm unfairly judging certain things, almost like I wish it wasn't set in this Batman universe.  Which is ironic because that's the whole gimmick of the show.  While certain character arcs I find compelling (primarily Penguin at this point), others, like Batman and Catwoman, I find frustrating because it feels like there will never be a payoff in this series because they are so young.  And since you know these characters can't be killed off, there's less of a sense of danger for any of them.

Then I watch Arrow and Flash, both of which are highly enjoyable in different ways, and wish they would have just made a new freaking Batman show with these actors and show runners.

I guess I'm in between you two.  I found this one to be uneven.  Some really good parts, but some kind of lame ones, too.  For the record, I like the character development episodes.  However, I usually like them to have a narrative arc, and this episode just felt all over the place.

Also, I couldn't believe fistbump notcop tried to bring fistbumping back again.  Stop trying to make post-apocalyptic fistbumping happen.  It's not going to happen.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Unless Bob found a bottle of scotch and started drinking again, there's no reason for him to wander outside crying other than his being bit. Still, it would have been clearer if they'd showed the bite.  It makes you wonder why they didn't.  Is there a reason or were they just avoiding the obvious shot because it was too obvious?

LOL on the notcop!

Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm guessing it's because of my "eat the poison leg" twist?  Even though everyone is infected to come back as a zombie, didn't they establish that if you actually got bit you would die/turn sooner (like Herschel)?  Maybe eating poison bitten leg will kill them?  And the irony would be that they actually saved his life by chopping the leg first?  Maybe I'm thinking too much.

Yeah in retrospect it might have been a little uneven.  As much as I love having all the characters together, in some ways it's a detriment to the "character episode" storytelling.  Notcop and the hot girlfriend are pretty much extraneous.  I don't recall Maggie doing anything either.  It's hard to do really good ensemble work with this many characters, this is the most they've ever had IIRC.

Is anyone watching this?  Oddly enough this has turned out to be my favorite new show of the season, and it really wasn't on my radar at all originally.  Kind of a blend between a traditional lawyer type show mixed with Grey's Anatomy (think sexy interns and inter-competition) in a Revenge-like format with a murder plot overlay.  Viola Davis (The Help) is the lead, she's over-the-top but awesome all around.

Yes it's soapy, surprisingly sexy/sleazy and a bit cheesy in parts, but it's a hell of a lot of fun.  Where else could you get away with an awesome line like:

"Why is your penis on this dead girls' phone?"

Another great episode, not quite as exciting as the premiere but some good stuff.  It's fun to see the whole gang together again and on the move and (more or less) in halfway decent spirits.  Obviously that's not gonna last lol.

Question/Theory:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Throughout the cellar/water sequence I kept thinking someone would die or at least get bit.  I thought Bob might have been bit underwater but then they kind of went another direction.  Still, I couldn't tell what his crying sequence was all about, I was still suspecting he had been bitten and was essentially saying goodbye.  Could it be that he was bitten, and the leg that they ate was the infected one?  Ironically they would have saved him and possibly poisoned themselves?  Would be kind of cool but the previews didn't look like they were going that direction.

Except that, these games are kind of about choice. So, you can always choose not to pursue any intimate relationships, at all.

Do that, and you have plenty of platonic relationships. It beats poopooing developers that actually go and let players have the option of pursuing an intimate relationship in their game.

Exactly, that's what I love about these games!!  It's one of the few RPGs I really felt like I got to choose exactly how I played the game, from how much I wanted to micromanage combat to how deep a relationship I might want to pursue with a given NPC.

why do we even care or need to have an relationship element at all.  Stupid.

Because we are people and people enjoy relationships with other people?   icon_wink

Honestly I think it adds tremendously to the richness of a game world when you start to actually care more about the characters you are interacting with.  And if the game relationships are well developed, the way the characters react to you should also have more depth and nuance if there is a "relationship element."  More so if the relationship was developed because of choices I made in the game as opposed to just linearly pushed forward by a fixed storyline.

If it's all done right, it can be a major game changer IMHO.  I really enjoyed Alistair in DA and I have to admit I kind of had a crush on him (as much as you can have a crush on a computer character); he's one of the few game characters from any game I actually remember fondly.  I didn't know at the time that romance options weren't possible with him, but just on the chance they were, I always steered my gameplay decisions in that direction.

Back to DA:I, I'm a little disappointed that I can't get Cullen.  That Dorian guy looks lame and that bull thing looks scary.

I bought a 970 GTX yesterday (4GM VRAM!) and now everything runs well... a little too well  ninja

Good 1440p monitors are somewhat affordable and I'm thinking about embarking on gaming at the increased resolution. I've done some searching and haven't found any definitive guides which makes me ambivalent because I don't know if I should be concerned, because not enough people are gaming at that resolution due to incompatibility issues, or reassuring because the upgrade is seamless and there's not much to say about it.

Do most if not all modern games support the resolution? If you play a game at 1080p does it look blurry or simply play windowed? Is the jump in image quality awesome?

Pretty much everything I've played the last year or more supports 1440.  I'm on a 27" iMac (running Windows) for reference, gaming at 2560x1440.  Playing at a lower resolution is generally fine, honestly I haven't found the resolution jump as stunning as I'd imagined in my head.  Obviously it depends on the game/engine you are running, but I really think most game developers are not pushing the envelope in terms of taking advantage of higher resolutions.  Maybe if/when the entertainment industry pushes forward to 4K it will become more of a priority?

That's interesting, but I noticed no mention of cost was made at all.  How much are you willing to pay for the service?  $5/month would be a great price, but realistically I'm thinking it will be closer to $10.  I really have no idea honestly, seems like it would have to be cheaper than Netflix but if it were too cheap I wonder if it would be worth their effort.

Anyway, I understand that "a la carte" is what people are generally favoring, but the question then becomes what happens when you want, say, 10 different "a la carte" pieces at $10/month each?  You're back at $100/month to get the content you want...

What are you all doing for pre-orders if you are going PC?

I almost pulled the trigger doing it direct from EA/Origin, but I had some memory (can't remember specifically what) that people didn't do well with their ordering system in the past.  But...  I couldn't find digital downloads for the Deluxe Edition elsewhere.
