I'm horribly afraid of the French Revolution game, because it was my primary focus for my history degree, and I'm pretty confident they're going to butcher the actual history. I don't care about them playing fast and loose with the events and such; that's the nature of the game.

Which is sad, because done well it would be amazing. So many great characters, plot twists, etc.

It would also be a chance for the vast majority of people to hear about the Vendee massacres.

There's still a lot of room for them to go which would be really cool:

A female protagonist (kind of surprised we haven't had one yet), an Asian setting in the past, a modern-day or slightly in the future (of real life) setting, a South American setting, etc.

**** ton of info on Destiny out today. Going to copy/paste from Reddit because I'm lazy.

A ton of info out today on Destiny, as the press embargo ended this morning. Going to copy/paste a post from Reddit since it has such good info:

Quote:
After much waiting, the press embargo for Destiny will be released at 10am PDT. I'll be posting links to all of the media coverage in this thread. Today is one of the biggest days of Destiny coverage that we've had in a very long time, perhaps ever. **According to one of the community managers, it is the first true introductions to the game.** If you're one of those people who has no idea what Destiny is, think it's just another Halo, think it's just Borderlands, then TODAY is a day you'll want to pay attention to.

Confirmed sources include IGN, Destructoid, Playstation Access (on YT), Polygon, Playstation Blog, Rooster Teeth (via "The Know" YT channel and possibly The Patch), Joystiq, and The Guardian (rim shot). I'm sure there will be some others as well, Kotaku and Gamespot come to mind.

Snagged a deal on Watch Dogs before it released so I installed that last night and started it. It's fun in the same usual open world crime game genre. If you liked stuff like GTA, Saints Row, Sleeping Dogs and Mafia II then it'd stand to reason that you'd like this. The "magic phone" hacking stuff is new and works well in the game; changing traffic signals or raising security bollards on the fly is amusing and so is listening in on phone calls or draining the ATM accounts of child molesters. Faux-Chicago feels appropriately "alive". Driving is about the same as in SRTT/SR4. The plot itself is nothing special and you won't build any attachments to the protagonist.

The city feel Chicago-ish but with some major geographical oddities (apparently at some point the South Side fell into a new river) and weird naming conventions I assume were partially for trademark reasons ("Magnificent Mile" becomes "Mad Mile", etc). Sears/Willis Tower is represented along with a something sorta like the Hancock building, Navy Pier is there and a few other buildings you'd recognize if you lived there. Major absences are the Art Institute, Museum Campus, Soldier Field and both baseball stadiums were consolidated into the generic "May Field". The general feel is there though and it's a lot better than Hitman: Absolution's depiction.

Anyway, anyone who bought it early has nothing to be ashamed of (it ain't no Aliens: Colonial Marines) and anyone who's waiting for a major sale isn't really missing out.

Eh, I don't know what Second Coming people thought it was going to be that people are feeling so let down. It's just a game.

The whole hacking thing, in my opinion, is significant enough to make the game unique within the genre. Being able to play with the environment gives you a bunch more options and the whole camera hacking thing lets you play stealthily without even moving if you want. I needed to access a server within a guarded building. I tried physically infiltrating it a few times (quietly) but then decided to stay out of the action on a balcony. I used my phone to hack a camera, from there jumped to a guard's cellphone, used his phone's camera to jump again and then from that camera was able to hack the controls for some security shutters and raise them. Jumped again and was able to see through the now unshuttered window to hack a phone lying on a table and have it make noise, attracting a guard. Jumped to his phone and waited for him to turn around and get line of sight to a terminal. Jumped into that, broke the security, took control of an upstairs camera and got line of sight to the server I needed and I was in.

Had I wanted to, I also could have just used my assault rifle to kill a bunch of dudes and walked up to the terminal directly. And I won't pretend that my above scenario was exciting to relate but it was pretty fun to do. Likewise, I've hacked the controls of a crane to drop crates on some guards, blew open valves to stun the guys next to it and blow up high voltage panels to predictable effect for the guy next to it. Or mix and match like when I used some cameras to locate my target on the third floor of a parking garage, grabbed a car, drove past the guards to get to my target, beat the **** out of him, ran up to the top floor and picked the largest vehicle I saw before plowing back down through all the dudes. Not as sophisticated but still fun.

Anyway, I'm not saying it's the best thing since sliced bread but it's a solid entry into the field. You could argue that SRTT is GTA with over-the-top humor, Sleeping Dogs is GTA with kung-fu and Just Cause 2 is GTA with a grappling hook but it's those "with..." modifiers that makes them worth playing.

Playing some more, I hit the single-multiplayer game last night. You can be playing your campaign and then get alerted that someone is trying to hack you. The game shows a circle on the map that the hacker is located in and you need to identify him (or her) before they finish their hack of your phone. The kicker is that the other hacker is a real player who is in your game. They have a normal civilian skin (as opposed to a goofy trench coat) so they're trying to look nonchalant or stay slouched down in a parked car or crouch behind some trash bins while you're racing about, scanning people and trying to locate them (the closer you are to fully hacked, the more the circle shrinks to help you locate them). Once you find them, they're alerted and take off running and you chase and gun them down. It's a fun diversion and largely voluntary -- you find NPCs from "Blume Corporation" and hacking one makes them put a hit on you which is the other person's entry into your game. Winning and losing moves a separate pool of "points" you can use for some extra perks that aren't necessary to the campaign game but probably entertaining like anti-vehicle ammunition.

I'm 3-1 for defending myself. The lost one was a little ironic and frustrating because I was JUST on top of the building in his hiding spot thinking "This would be a great place to hide for a hack". Then when the hack came from that basic location I was too unsure of how to get back up and didn't want to waste the time trying to get up there when he might have been on the ground. My best time, I got into an underground loading dock before the hacker even scanned me to start and hid behind some pallets, using a hacked camera to survey the area. He came down looking for me, I saw him first and -- bam -- shotgun to the chest.

There's other games too, mainly racing variants. Haven't tried them yet. My verdict is still the same (fun game but no reason to drop sixty bucks) but I thought the "intrusion" mini-game was worth mentioning.

FFS: had that perfect start in Don't starve. Found this sweet area near beefalo turds, plenty of trees, tons of frogs to catch. Wandered the land and found enough gold for my science machine. Planted some crops and was going to start building my farm. **** I even survived a tree gaurd by burning his **** with my fire.

Day 8 Hounds attacked. I fended them off well. But I waited just a bit to long to build my fire... before it would let me build one bam eaten by the grue.

F this game. Totally going to start again though. Smiley: motz

Lol, my son picked this up in the Steam Sale and has been playing. I've been hearing the same curses from him.

My longest stretch was right around 100 days, but that guy was boring because i didn't want to take any chances with him. If I had a computer atm I might be tempted to load up the game again. I've not defeated the bosses in the down below yet.

Finished Watch Dogs the other day. I liked it although I like the game genre as a whole and so wasn't huffy about "Like GTA but with..." I thought it had enough unique bits to set it apart in the "open world modern crime" family of games. The plot wasn't anything great and, like many of these games, felt like it went on too long. I think the issue is that the chapters are too short. You'll have a goal like "Rescue the girl from the warehouse" and to do that, you first need to hack a system in some office to get the warehouse location. Ok, fine. But then it always gets stretched with junk like "Oh, the uplink is dead so now find three satellite dishes" and "the file was encrypted so find this guy who..." blah blah blah. It starts feeling ridiculous and I really think if they just made getting through the office take three times longer it would make for a better plot than adding three contrivances just to pad game time. That's not just Watch Dogs but a general complaint about gaming these days. Anyway, I'll give it a B+. If I didn't live in the Chicago area, I'd probably give it a B.

Started playing Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. It's a nicely done game, looks pretty and voiced in an appropriately Transformer-y way. Since you're still on Cybertron, everyone transforms into futuristic looking vehicles rather than semi-trailers and VW bugs. I'm not versed enough in Transformers lore to get into how "accurate" it is but it seems like if you're a fan then this should be a fun experience (so far). I'm not in love with the shooting mechanics which are serviceable but not really satisfying. I'm also not thrilled about how often it has you switch characters; in a few hours of play time I've been Bumblebee, Optimus, Cliffjumper and Jazz. Others might dig that aspect more but I like sticking with one person (or robot as the case may be).

I got War for Cybertron at some point and played it for 98 minutes. I thought for sure it looked fun but it never really grabbed me.

I'm kind of looking for something new to light a fire in my gaming desire atm. Of course non of the games I have bought on sale but never played sound enticing right now.

I have a Don't Starve guy with a nice base and I'm not really sure what I want to build next so I just quit playing. Instead I played DS2 all weekend. But my current guy in DS2 is ready to go NG + but I want to wait until the first DLC on the 22nd since I already have one toon halfway through NG+.

I played some Child of Light. It's pretty, I'm already bored with it.

I feel you on filler content or padding. In fact many people complained South Park TSOT was too short. It had some side missions and some collectables but nothing too mandatory or annoying. I finished the game in 18 hours and thought, You know what? That was just about right for the game not to lose momentum.

Help me choose:

Should I try DmC or The Darkness II tonight?

Haven't played DmC

Darkness II was relatively fun and is short. I think my playthrough was maybe six or seven hours although I didn't hunt all the collectibles. The visuals are well done and some of the voice acting and characters are pretty close to excellent (esp. the lore/artifacts guy... Jimmy?). Game play is unique enough with the Darkness powers to set it apart -- tearing off car doors to use as shields or flinging rebar to staple to walls. By the time the gimmicks start to wear thin, the game is over anyway.

I feel ya on [X] of Cybertron. It's still fun enough right now but I don't know if I'll wind up finishing the game.

Sold! I actually read some of the Darkness books when the series was early. I don't rightly remember why he has writhing masses of tangly snake arms anymore because it's been to long. But I remember the series being fairly interesting.

I re-installed Skyrim on my new machine, and I'm trying to remember all of the mods I used (I have it through Steam, so I'm doing the mod subscriber-thingy). I have SKSE installed and a few mods for skill books and UI enhancements, but I can't remember all of the sweet graphics upgrades that are out there. Gimme your favs.

I don't have the "expansion" or the unofficial patch(es). Are those worth grabbing?

How's the new box working for you?

Falskaar is the "expansion" mod. I'm also a fan of Deadly Dragons. I didn't do much graphic modding that I can remember.

[Edit: No idea if either is available via the Steam mod thingie but you can use both that and Nexs mods without conflict]

I got back into Child of Light for a bit. It got more fun after I could fly. Then I got bored again and fired up The Darkness II. Wow, big change of pace from cutesie happy world to EAT THEIR HEARTS. In a good way. I'm diggin it so far. [:evil:]

I'd go find the actual Hearthstone thread, but why bother? Paladin is popular now that Kolento hit #1 Legend with it. I'm still plodding along with basically the same deck. Ranked play gets stressful for me so I usually just play until I earn enough for an arena run. I think my deck could make Legend, maybe with a couple tweaks, but I don't think I'm dedicated enough to grind it out.

Yea, I gave up on trying to hit legend when I realized I'd have to play about 10x more frequently than I currently do. >_<

Naxx comes out July 22 (next Tuesday). To expensive for my blood (I have enough saved for one wing). Based off their projected prices.

Been playing Titan Quest which I had backlogged forever and is an old game and another entry into the whole Diablo/Torchlight ARPG loot-grind-fest game model. Having fun with it though. My "hero" spends an inordinate amount of time looting the graves of my fellow countrymen in the name of "saving" Greece and the world. Now I'm in Egypt though so my grave-robbing weighs on my conscience less.

That style of games should find a solution to the **** all over the ground" problem.

Perhaps smaller sections with reward chests at the end instead of everything dropping stuff.

Watched a Let's Play od Diablo 3 Hardcore. Made me roll a new HC character. We'll see how far I get this time. Usually I start getting too greedy at level 60+.

I personally don't get hardcore mode for a game with that much time investment.

I just wish that your hardcore character migrated to softcore after you died.

The idea is twofold: for a lot of people, the most fun part of the game is the part before the big time investment - the leveling process and shortly after with a lot of frequent upgrades and new abilities pouring in. And then for a lot of people, the threat of true death gives the game a kind of thrill. All that time and effort you spent on this one character makes it kind of dear to you, so Hardcore mode gives everything a kind of "living on the edge" feel that a lot of people find exciting.

Yeah, softcore is just boring to me now. Hardcore makes the leveling process more interesting, since you can die and lose your progress. Crusader gets all the abilities I enjoy using by level 30 so it's not a huge investment for me to get to that point.

Why not just play SC as if it was HC?
