Anybody have thoughts on the Wildlands season pass? On sale at GG right now and wondering if I should get base game or gold.


I think the average Joe will tire of the gameplay loop well before getting through the main game. I have about 30ish hours playing coop with a friend and we've cleared about half the areas.

Bah definitely is a first class dong wrestler, but he learned that from his mom so I don't hold it against him.

 

Edit:

 

Also, Gamestop has the Blue Yeti Blackout bundle with Watch Dongs 2 on sale for $89.99 again, just in case Keeper is still looking for a mic. 

Would be an insane deal if WD2 + Yeti-mic was say $50. ;)

 

Anyways, does anyone here have one of those Yeti Blackout condenser mics? Are they any good?

New egg has mortal kombat xl for 9.95  

PCDD    I would double check because there were a lot of issues with the pc version.   So much so I bought the xb1 xl version. 

 

Not in the new MK XL version, for Single Player offline play. After the fiasco, High Voltage was thrown off the game (thanks for another horrible WB port, out-the-gate!) + it was handed over to QLOC to fix it up - and boy, did they ever!

 

One of the few games I can run at 50-60FPS at 4K here on PC, in single-player mode on my rig, since it ain't got much really happening on-screen + in the background.

 

My PC = i7 950; 16 GB RAM; W7 64-bit; 3.5 GB 970.

 

Can't speak on MP, though.

BF1 Ultimate is $62.51 after taxes for me, and that's not counting any paypal fees.  Still, if anyone is interested, send me a message.

Origins charge tax for digital good? that's news for me

Not to derail this engaging dialog, but what's the hotness in HDDs now. The last drive I bought was a WD Black 3 TB over 2 years ago. It's full of games now, so I needs mo. Needs it.

The Iron Banner multiplayer events definitely get laggy. Destiny has always been a bizarre mix of half measures though. Like, for those who don't know, Destiny 1 didn't even include a world map.

Did Destiny have servers on the xbox one or ps4?

 

I don't plan on buying Destiny 2 ever with Destiny 1 being below  average game for me personally.

I saw that earlier, bummer. The no dedicated servers news is pretty unfortunate, but on the other hand I haven't been one to experience any terrible lag issues in Destiny with their current p2p networking like some have. I'll reserve judgement on how they handle their new p2p setup upon the beta and release.

 

If the news is accurate about no cross-saves that's disappointing as well. Going PC would be my first choice, but with the PC version being delayed (until the Holiday season?) I'll likely start out on PS4 to play on release. Building a new PC around the Holidays would be a good excuse to then shift over. Maybe it'll be bundled with an Nvidia card which would also make for an even easier decision.

 

This news doesn't make or break anything for me, but it does take some of shine off of what does look like a highly anticipated release. It'll still be fun though.

It was alarming to see the four arrow keys for emotes on those guys control sheet for playing Destiny 2 on PC.  If there's no chat or anything special then...

It will be just like the current Blizzard games like Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, etc since it is running on Battle.net. So it is text chat in game but you can also use Blizzard Voice and invite everyone into a room that way. Just means that you have to use the Blizzard Launcher if you want to use voice chat. You also have the ability to freely choose what you want to use via 3rd party means Discord, Curse, Teamspeak, etc.

Im a fan of these:

http://www.microcent..._-_HDWE150XZSTA

 

The toshiba x300 series. Toshiba is one of the few brands still hitting a good price/perf ratio compared to competitors. Their x300's are also 7200rpm and 128meg cache vs the 64 on most of the competitors. I have a 6tb I use as my steam/origin/ubi drive and a 5tb for movie storage. As a game drive cant complain.  Also use the p300, which is the 64meg cache model, in my steamOS box for the living room just cause I needed something cheap with a few TB's and it fit the bill

The simple answer is, yes, it  does have dedicated servers but at some point when the reviews started going negative (I want to say at about the 1.2-1.3 time frame) Ubisoft swapped them for cheap servers in a cost cutting measure...  These servers are just horrible.  A quick search (anywhere) shows allot of threads about the lag but the threads I saw where people poked around the PC netcode and saw the changes I cannot find.

 

Anyhow, while dedicated servers are normally a boom Ubisoft found someway to make them a negative...

Doesn't UbiSoft always find a way to make anything that's normally a positive into a negative? ;)

 

Open-world games / side-questing in games (i.e. see their whole roster); game-clients (UPlay); and now ded-servers (Division).

I actually enjoy their open world games... Now, I don't play them exclusively (or, naybe, more importantly, excessively) but both Wildlands and The Division I thought was helped story wise by the open world. They both allowed for s more detailed story for those who wanted it without forcing people to it.

But, yeah, they have some sort of skill... And For Honor suffers from a lack of dedicated servers.

Maybe it's a regional server issue... as in not enough regions.

I actually enjoy their open-worlds, too - but they all seem to follow a certain formula (i.e. main quests are great + often cool set-pieces; side-quests are often collect-a-thons + take-over these areas; and some side-quests are actual main-mission style missions maybe) and worst of all is everybody else is copying that formula (i.e. go see Homefront TR)!

FEAR Complete Bundle on BundleStars = $2.99 (95% off):

https://www.bundlest...dle/fear-bundle

 

Includes FEAR 1 + 2 expansions (Extraction Point + Perseus Mandate); & FEAR 2 + Reborn DLC; & FEAR 3.

 

Heck, the FEAR 2: Reborn DLC itself at its cheapest has been $2.30, according to ITAD:

https://isthereanyde...in=feariireborn

 

EDIT / Quick Thoughts:

I loved FEAR 1 (base-game); Extraction was good; and Perseus was decent.

FEAR 2 was quite good. Never played Reborn DLC; don't own it.

FEAR 3 was okay + decent, but nothing special.

yea its the new battletech game

 

 

 

 

I just watched that trailer and I think never played any Front Mission games, but it looks an awful lot like MechCommander 3 to me--which would be fantastic. I loved those games when they came out back in the day. Speaking of back in the day, I used to play a game called MechForce that was pretty fun and someone is apparently working on an open-source remake called MechFight

This sounds like every open-world game to me. The only ones I remember playing that had much in the way of creativity when it comes to side missions are The Witcher 3 and, to a much lesser extent, DA: Inquisition. I'm in the middle of Mafia III at the moment and it fits that description to a "T."

Oh, yes - Mafia 3 definitely has "UbiSoft" style open-world game written all over it, once you get past the Mafia 3 Demo / Intro section.

 

I think back in the day, most side-quests weren't say collect-a-thons + take over these area missions (i.e. see Homefront TR, Mafia 3, AC series, FC series, etc). More side-quests in open-world games were those Loyalty style missions in those days, like you'd see in Mass Effect 2+3 & Dragon Age: Inquisition. These Loyalty-style quest-lines in those side-quests likely will be shorter than the main-quests, but usually...those side-quests still had set-pieces + more meat to them than the usual MMO-style of quests (Kill X enemies, find X characters, go to X areas, find X items, etc).

 

It seems like more games - especially in RPG's - are doing more collect-a-thons and MMO-style quests and less of the Loyalty-style quests. Probably easier to do so, to keep the costs of voice-acting, writing, choices, and other things down.

So I thought I was being funny, I was making Uriel's Chasm game number 5,000.  Well, my key was invalid.  So I made Dead Cells number 5K instead and it is a fantastic game.  Early Access and limited content but man is it off to a good start.  The combat feels wonderful.
