#105241 Thermopyle  

Posted 27 December 2015 - 04:37 AM

Wrapped up AC IV. Was a really good time. I got used to the ship battles by the end but I would have enjoyed that aspect of the game alot more if it didn't take so damn long to upgrade the ship. A damn fine game though.

I've not played IV yet, but the ship empire and materials components to Rogue were the weakest parts of the game for me. You have this fleet of ships that you're sending all over the world to trade materials at various locations...but you can't actually use any of those materials for upgrading any of your shit. By the end of the game I had ridiculous amounts of money pouring in but kept having to run around to buy wood or oil or whatever. Terrible implementation of the trading idea.

Sounds like the equivalent to Kenway's fleet in Black Flag. I spent like a total of 3 minutes on it during my playthrough. Seemed pretty useless.

In Rogue one of the trophies is for completing 17 Naval Campaign story missions. That and the money income the missions give you is the only reason I bothered--the money was useful for running around buying resources over and over again. 

 

Actually the upgrades for Shay were dumb as well. Stuff like needing to kill two blue whales for a leather bullet pouch. Really? Where does the other square mile of skin go?  :-k

Ark Survival Evolved looks sweet.


It's a one hour trial. I can stream it tomorrow.

So we've had like fifty posts about this LPB Vita Marvel deal and how that's about to disappear from the store. Is LBP Vita worth playing, though? I already have 2 and 3 but haven't fired them up yet. $8 is fine, but only if it's worth the time when I already have others in the series that are unplayed. If Vita is more of the same or has annoying Vita-specific mechanics like using the camera then I'll pass.

Google says yes in multiple locations.

 

 

They really need to have a persistent Yes/No compatibility flag that shows up for every Vita game on the store. The Jurassic World entry doesn't mention it at all one way or the other as far as I can see. Neither does the Lego page.

https://store.playst...-PSTVCOMPATIBLE

they break it down by Vita games and Classics (PSP, Minis, PSOnes)

 

Lego JW is in the Vita section

I'll probably get slapped, but I ended up buying New Order and Old Blood plus Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines and used my 10% off code.

I'm probably the wrong person to ask, but I played maybe 45 minutes of it and didn't bother to go back again. I thought it was boring.

If you are on the sale page and click on the Jurassic World Vita link, this is what you get:

 

https://store.playst...EGOJW0000000001

 

The page for the game itself doesn't say PS TV anywhere. Since people will go straight from sale pages to the game listing having to go look for some separate list somewhere is just a tedious hoop to jump through.

I swear whenever I catch The Honeymooners on WPIX 11 out of NY, it's always the episode where Ralph and Norton do the Hucklebuck.  And it's always hilarious.

I get what you say but that's how they currently do it so that's your only option unless you want to google it.  Googlehoops or Sonyhoops.  

 

No matter how you look at it, you're hooping through hoops like a hooper.

Returned my physical New Order and bought the digital one.  Also grabbed Saints Row 4 and thinking about Beyond Two Souls.  Would get 20% off Heavy Rain which I want to play finally.

 

Might pass on it though.

Welp time to finish just cause soon since best buy is doing 30%. $37.8 tiv after gcu right now.

wow just cause 3 is borderline unplayable when psn is janked. Even if you switch to offline mode it tries to login for a full minute every time you use the map screen.

Yeah, the "required" online in JC3 is a bit much.

If this 30% bonus holds all week I may dump Just Cause 3 as well...lots of other shit to play.

my wife likes just cause 3.

JC3!!!!!

 

hyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyppppppppeeee!!!????

Best Buy has select Lego Dimensions Fun Packs (one character and their vehicle/accessory) at 2 for $20.

With GCU they're basically BOGO.

http://ow.ly/WlprX

Probably grab at least two since one of the characters shares a name with my kid. And thinking Wicked Witch to access the Wizard of Oz play hub.

So tempting to grab more.

Yeah. He gets some weird looks and he'll never be able to buy himself a keychain with his name on it, but it suits him.

pharm - just cause 3 is $40 gcu today at bby so it's entirely possible that the tiv will tank sooner rather than later.

The fuckery of driving in and out of O'hare is unreal...especially with the holiday traffic. Though I hate driving in Illinois regardless, with their freeway loops, tollways, and erratic honking drivers.

I can only imagine. I have no desire to witness that even when it's not the holidays. The San Diego airport was nice and easy though.

Found the super secret "control" on the TV itself. It is indeed under the bottom right, but it's not a joystick, it's a single button. Press it to power on. Press while on to bring up a control menu. Press quick to rotate between the options. Press and hold to select. Awful. I guess that's what you get when you buy the cheap version.

Ass Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 are 50% off today and tomorrow only with the ol Cartwheel.

Also Destiny Taken King is 25% off, and Guitar Hero Live is 30% off (all consoles this time Tyler) for the whole week.

Probably some decent price matching opportunities if you don't live in Utah.

Playing gunslugs. Died and wanted to continue but needed to pause. Hit start instead of x and guess what? Damn thing went back to beginning instead of using the continue.

The start button pauses the game at every other time in the game.
