Day one.

Stop the planet. I want off.

Hopefully most of the injured will recover without complications. I saw a lot of limb loss in the graphic photos posted on various news sites. Just terrible. frown

I suppose we're in for wild speculation over the upcoming days as to the culprit. Luckily they'll find out and bring them to justice speedily.

Battleblock Theater and Terraria remain my go to games this week.

After having tried the Motocross Madness trial, nothing.

That bad?  Maybe we should start a thread discussing it.  smile

I doubt it would be much of a thread. But yeah, it's pretty bad. Only nine tracks, loose handling, and ugly visuals. There's a reason it's only 800 mp.

I thought the demo was a lot of fun, and I thought the game looked great.  The lack of tracks may be a problem, but there seems to be a ton to do within those tracks (alternate paths, collectibles, levelling-up, etc).  Reviews so far are good, although some users are reporting bugs.

The alternate routes through the tracks are pretty cool. It reminds me of Joyride Turbo quite a bit in that regard. It's also lacking any significant challenge aside from finding collectibles in free roam, again, like Joy ride.

But I digress. I simply didn't find it to my liking. I've got loads to do yet in Terraria & Battleblock before Monaco hits.

AAA: Bioshock Infinite closely ahead of Tomb Raider.

AA: Battleblock Theater.

Finally got a chance to play Lords of Waterdeep this past weekend. What an awesome euro style game. We must have played it four or five times and it was a blast. As was suggested, I did have to teach my wife to ignore the fantasy theme. For some reason it's automatically "too complicated" if there's any flavor themed text in a game. She just doesn't have the attention span to invest into anything other than rolling a dice and moving to win.

The rest of us loved it. Looking forward to the expansion.

Wanted to actually get outside this weekend with the nice weather but I've came down with a cold or something.

Got a stack of board games coming in the post today but I'll likely be playing some Terraria and Battleblock Theater.

Looks interesting. I've yet to pick up Mice and Mystics but have read good things about Plaid Hat Games.

I won't even play GTA or TLoU due to disinterest so barring some surprise release, Bioshock is likely my pick. Thing is, I didn't really enjoy the actual game play in Bioshock. The great story is what drove me to complete it.

Would love to see a film studio do it justice but we know how often that happens...

52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/01) on: April 01, 2013, 03:43:17 PM
I'll check out the Battleblock trial but most likely nothing this week.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 03/29/13 - Easter Edition on: March 29, 2013, 03:54:14 PM
My son and I are going to be doing some split screen play in Terraria. Might squeeze some Skyrim in if I find the time.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Bioshock: Infinite - Impressions Incoming! Impressions pg 6 on: March 28, 2013, 04:46:41 PM
Starting a second play through to see how the story washes over me now I know the conclusion. I wanted to play the 1999 mode to get all the achievements but I don't think I'd have the patience on a couple of the harder parts, at least not on a console.
55  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: [Android] Elder Sign: Omens - Anyone tried this? on: March 28, 2013, 01:46:27 AM
I have the Android version on my phone. It's identical to the iOS version.

Yeah, lol. Been awhile since I've played a game that I couldn't stop before finishing it. It actually took about 14 hours and I did it in two sittings.   eek
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Bioshock: Infinite - Impressions Incoming! Impressions pg 6 on: March 27, 2013, 07:13:49 PM

Make sure you sit through the credits.

You can upgrade salts with infusions to the point you'll hardly ever run out. Later in the game, salts are scattered all over the place and vending machines are in ample supply. Not to mention Elizabeth will occasionally throw you one when you're low.

Do I understand it right that this game's storyline isn't directly tied to the other two games?

That's correct.

I've been playing this pretty much non stop all day. Don't think I've done that since the early days of WoW.

Definitely up for a replay after I've finished it.   thumbsup

Check point only save earns the game a pretty bad black mark from me.

This. Fun, but man does this suck.

This sucks... especially since you don't have it in Bioshock 1 and 2 on the PC version

Agreed, what the heck?  disgust

For me the mouse sensitivity seems a little wonky. I've turned acceleration off, it moves too slowly turned all the way down but it goes up way too quickly from there to where my view flies all over the place with the slightest movement. Think I got it settled down but sheesh.

Another plus to the checkpoint saves suck. Maybe someone will figure out a way to implement them.

So far I'm not feeling the love. Maybe it is the extended opening, it is almost like they are saying 'hey, we can have NPC's that are not behind glass walls' but the whole city feels so artificial. Walk by a npc, hear their line or two, then move on. 

The love will come, good sir. I agree with you, however, that there is very little innovation in the game. It's not entirely different from the original Bioshock, save a much better feel to the combat. I'm not sure the aging gen of consoles they had to keep in mind within development could produce much more than the typical system of Npc behavior they have in place.

Elizabeth, however, is very well done within that limitation, Imo.

Is everyone getting this for PC rather than console?  I'm always torn.  I know it will look better on the PC but I can't resell PC games once I've beaten them.

I'm playing it on Xbox and I really wish I could experience it on PC. The games art style is fantastic but a lot of the textures are pretty bad on console. The frame rate isn't too hot in places either. If you have a good PC, do yourself a favor and eat the $30 bucks you won't get back on what is likely to be the best game this year.
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Bioshock: Infinite - Impressions Incoming! Impressions pg 6 on: March 26, 2013, 02:48:08 PM
Yeah. So far this game is pretty amazing. So refreshing to play a non dude bro shooter again with a strong narrative.
64  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Bioshock: Infinite - Impressions Incoming! Impressions pg 6 on: March 26, 2013, 04:15:39 AM
If it weren't so cold out tonight I'd run out to pick it up. All these stellar reviews have me moderately hyped up. Oh well, I have the rest of the week off to play.  icon_wink

1999 mode doesn't sound like much fun considering there is no way to manually save your progress. Hopefully auto save checkpoints are generously interspersed through out.

I've not followed the game at all. Does one need to finish bioshock 2 before playing?


I doubt it.  Ken Levine didn't work on Bioshock 2 (If I remember correctly), and I haven't read anything that suggests the two worlds are related.

One thing I noticed watching the gametrailers review is that they were playing the PC version of the game.  I wonder how the console version looks.

From what I've gathered, the console versions look pretty good due to a fantastic art design but suffer from low rez textures similar to those in Dishonored. They also struggle with the frame rate in certain sections --primarily the latter section of the game.

I wish I had a PC capable of running it. Im not a graphics whore by any means but a low framerate really annoys me in a FPS.

Nah, it's got several other games above it, with Grand Theft Auto IV at the top. Even the original Bioshock is a step above already.

Ahh, ok. GTA IV being at the top definitely isn't in line with my opinion.  saywhat
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/Ps3] Bioshock: Infinite - Reviews and Impressions of Reviews! on: March 25, 2013, 03:02:57 PM
Is this on pace to be the highest rated game of the generation? I'm cautiously keeping expectations in check seeing as most big budget games are on a 9-10 scale with critics.

Xcom coming to iOS this summer. Interestingly enough, it's the complete version with only some maps missing.

I don't think you understand the word "complete"

The best show ever gets one of the worst games of the year. Makes sense. Ride the popularity of the show with a quick cash in. Activision at its best.

Oh, I didn't realize this was a Breaking Bad game.  slywink

I think you mean Battlestar Galactica. If I'd known this was a BSG game I would have bought it immediately. I'm on my way to the store now!


icon_lol

To be fair, it's pretty close between BSG and TWD as my favorite. The best BSG game is the board game!

Nada. Trudging through Borderlands 2 currently and I'm starting to get the nagging feeling shooters don't do it for me anymore.

Still, I'll pick up Bioshock: Infinite I'm sure.

Hoping to get some board gaming in this weekend. If not, I'm hitting the backlog and will start either Borderlands 2 or Dragons Dogma.

Carcassonne, Catan, Elder Sign:Omens, Puzzle craft, The Room, and Outwitters are some of my favorites.

Nothing for me this week. Bioshock is probably the next thing I'll get.
80  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Getting Back Into Board Games on: March 11, 2013, 03:03:30 PM
Thanks for the recommendations. Ordered Lords of the Waterdeep and Mr Jack. I'll probably end up getting quite a few more to throw into the rotation after I see if she'll continue to play on a regular basis.
