81  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Seeking a specific matching (?) game (iOS)... on: June 17, 2014, 05:54:31 PM

Quote from: rittchard on June 17, 2014, 05:45:46 PM

A little while ago I saw a lady playing what looked like a matching game on her iPad.  I've played many of these games but I don't think I've ever seen one quite like this.  Instead of a fixed screen like pretty much every one I've played, it seemed like she was scrolling around all over the place and just touching stuff to make it go away (so I don't think it was a swap type of match but I could be wrong).  I've searched through the store for "jewel" and "matching games" but haven't found anything that seemed right.

Anyone have any ideas, or maybe have a wife that plays a lot of these who might know?

Thanks!

It looked like a family game, right?  Maybe google "touching stuff family jewel wife swap" and see what turns up?

So I downloaded New Super Mario Bros U, and it is also great. I clearly don't think like a "gamer" because I can't figure out why this system isn't doing well. Is it just the graphic processing power? 

I think that they completely lost the audience from the original Wii.  On multiple occasions I've seen shoppers in big box stores confused about Wii U versus Wii.  "Will these Wii U games work on my Wii?  Is the Wii U an add-on?"

Then for people like me, so far the system cost to available game ratio has been off.  I'm not against buying a Box that Plays Nintendo Exclusives, but I need more exclusives or a cheaper box.  I think they're finally getting the library built up enough to make me tempted, but I'd still like to see the price come down or see a great system+game bundle released.

If it's a hassle, I'll send a PM with my paypal email.  Now that I think about it, I think the last time I sent a steam wallet gift card code.  I'll send Roguetad the last copy in a minute. 

From poking around, I think it incredibly may not be possible to gift Steam credits, other than buying Steam gift cards on Amazon in set amounts.  Let's go with paypal or Amazon gift card, whichever you prefer.

Whoa...I don't know how I missed this thread.  The ships look awesome as just SW collectibles.  The quality and detailing looks good from the pictures.  I need to get that Millennium Falcon asap.   

The models do indeed look amazing.  I've never been very good at painting miniatures, so it's heaven having all of these look so good right out of the box.  It also makes it really really hard to not spend way too much money on a game I rarely actually play.  But then again, I've bought models of Star Wars ships in the past just because they looked cool, so I don't feel all that guilty for building a collection.

I sometimes have a hard time playing on the mobile app. The devices that I arm, sometimes would arm immediately but a lot of times they won't arm until the player passed them. This could be due to lag but makes it annoyingly unpredictable and hard to plan ahead.

They should take a few seconds to arm, and then they don't activate until the player passes over them.

I'm really liking the Tailing, but the Hacking is still too chaotic for my tastes.  
When you're being Hacked, Jam Comms will buy you about 15 more seconds.  Pop it later, though, when the circle is smaller.

I haven't gotten the hang of how tailing works, so I have yet to enjoy that very much.  Hacking I like, though.  I just wish hacking more encouraged the tactic of blending in with the crowd instead of hiding in dumpsters and such.  The former is way more fun, but latter seems way more effective.
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [E3 2012] Watch Dogs on: June 12, 2014, 10:11:45 PM
The seamless way they integrate the multiplayer invasions is pretty slick.  I didn't think I'd ever enjoy this type of multiplayer, but at least in this game I really like it.

One time I had just finished a mission on a remote island, and I was driving back over the bridge to get to town.  Just as I crossed the bridge, a car came toward me going the other direction.  In retrospect, duh, it's another player, but I had been invasionless for hours so I just figured the AI driver was trying to cross the bridge I just put into place.  I drove on past the car to go about my business, and then comes the hacking notification.  Realization.  Facepalm.  U-turn, rush back to the car, hop out to shoot it, he starts to flee, I shoot out his tires and give chase, he drives out of the hacking zone, I wait for him to turn around and come back, shooty shooty I win.  Super fun.

It's an older title, but I just picked up Cook, Serve, Delicious! and I'm completely addicted to it.  The more freeform way you can progress through the game, choosing your own new foods, food upgrades, and equipment, is a welcome change compared to the super structured way most time management games have you advance.  If you've ever enjoyed a Sally's Spa type game, I highly recommend it.

Actually I hadn't gotten to the MP content yet, I'm still working on the SP side missions.

I'm using a 360 controller on a PC which has been working pretty good for me. I did this on AC4 as well so I'm comfortable with it. Driving is getting better for me as I get used to the wonky handling. I'm four hours in and still just getting used to using the hacking features.

If you were indeed talking about the "stop a crime" side missions, you're probably overthinking how to do them.  I also had trouble at first just because the game does such a poor job explaining how you're supposed to handle them.  All you have to do is turn on your profiling app (so you see people's names and occupations) and be close enough to the criminal or victim to get them highlighted in yellow.  Be close enough to keep them highlighted in yellow, but far enough and out of sight so you don't get a yellow caution triangle filling up over their head.  Hang out until something starts to happen, the yellow "crime probability" bar will fill up, and when it turns red, pull out your gun.  Shoot if you want to, but pulling out the gun is enough to make the bad guy flee, then you can chase him down for a nonlethal takedown.

I'm still having problems with the on-foot fixer missions; I keep getting spotted before anything happens, but I think that's due to me not being stealthy enough.

Do you mean the multiplayer fixer missions where you have to trail someone, or the missions like "watch the potential victim/criminal and stop a crime?"

The Halo collection looks awesome. I disagree that it's just a simple greatest hits package - the ability to play any level or any multiplayer map from any title at any time using customized playlists is really, really cool.

Can you help me understand why that feature is exciting?  There's a good chance I'll buy this collection at some point, but when I do I'm pretty sure I'll play each title in order, starting at the start and ending at the end.

BTW, no mention, whatsoever of Kinect.

No direct mention, but there were several Kinect games shown.  There was Dance Central and Fantasia from Harmonix, some (mild) integration in Fable, and one of the clips in the indie showcase had some kind of full body tracking central to the gameplay.  Probably was a smart move for them to avoid directly talking about it.

Ori and Inside caught my eye more than anything.  I'm also happy Phantom Dust is coming back, but it's hard to get excited without any gameplay shown.

The Division does look great, and I'm sure it'll be fun, but these fake "live" gameplay sessions are not exciting to me.

Is the character interplay dialogue in-game or is it supposed to be the players talking to each other?

So MS is just showing games that will be available on the system, not anything unique to the system?

Isn't there supposed to be a major exclusive?

They've had XB1 exclusives, some XB1 + PC, and some fully multiplat games.

Oh, and a helluva lot of "first on XB1" stuff.  I guess timed exclusives are becoming a big part of their strategy.

Is the open world animal hunting the core of the gameplay, or just a side quest thing they're highlighting?  I really hope the former, mythical animal hunting with random other encounters?  Sounds really fun & unique.
