#11981425 CAG PSN Gamesharing #8 - Find/Create a Gameshare Group and Gameshare FAQ

Posted by stillshadow on 04 August 2014 - 05:44 PM

Seriously? I see people almost daily switch or drop out of groups for all sorts of reasons or none at all and no one gets upset so I thought it was acceptable etiquette.

Didn't mean to offend anyone so much. If your group was actually filled up I never would have messed anyone up.

I mainly even switched to PS4 so it could be available to more people in my PS4 group. My new group isn't even going to fill up before release anyway it seems with you having the discount.

I would have just come back to your group but you don't want that I guess. I will try to remember that you hold grudges and not to do business with you in the future as you requested.

LOL, you causin' trouble, snakes. People are getting nervous.


How about the Triple Crown Final Form?

Spoiler

I'm on that, too, but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. :(

None of you PS3 guys missed the ball like D and me and want in on this?

I'm trying out a no PS3 phantom because I would like to get this filled over the weekend but if there is enough interest I am fine to make PS3 phantoms as well.


#11885711 Xbox One - General Discussion Thread

Posted by stillshadow on 01 July 2014 - 03:39 AM

The tying of online to achievements/trophies this generation is lame. It sounds kind of sketchy and unknown what happens when you earn them offline.

Does anyone know for sure how it works? So it doesn't pop on the screen offline but it should get queued up for when you are online? Do they all just unlock automatically when you launch a game or is it hit or miss?

I ran into a fear of this last night when playing Watch Dogs. I was in a story mission and clicked the Xbox button to check my friends or achievements and I got the It's Time for an Update message. In the middle of my game. As the choices were either to do it or go offline I didn't want to mess with my unlocks so I let it update and lost my mission progress.

Sometimes my Internet might go down. Why make a disincentive to play then? I'm not someone who NEEDS achievements to play, hence why I still play Nintendo games, but it sure adds fun and replay to me. Why play offline when I can just wait and play online without fear of messing things up? Seems poorly thought out.

Also, does anyone else hate the super clicky shoulder buttons now? I loved the 360 controller and still prefer any Xbox controller to the alternatives but I don't like this new clicky stuff. It's harder to press and the sound annoys me.


#11869838 GRID Autosport

Posted by stillshadow on 25 June 2014 - 03:44 AM

Yeah, it's either this or a Nintendo Wii U game next for me from Gamefly so I will let them choose. I'm kind of lukewarm on it with so much else going on but I still would like to play at some point. Wish it was for One as well.

I'm sure I will enjoy it. Heck, I still think about Dirt Showdown sometimes.

Hey, best of luck with the move, Spy. I hope to still see you online a lot.

New to the thread but have been getting into my One again lately. As much as I enjoy Playstation stuff I always just gravitate towards Xbox. Just more user-friendly and better controller to me. 3 observations:

1. Why can't I turn off the darn rumble yet across every game? Seems like an idiotic oversight. Some of the rumble on this controller is insane, like when a turret overheats on Spartan Assault. Crazy volume and rattling with no option to disable it. Why hasn't this been updated yet? 360 has done this for years.

2. Why no motto or description in profiles anymore? Aren't things supposed to be more social now? Why take things away? I like to see them and sometimes refresh who are my CAG buddies.

3. Ditto for beacons. With big friend lists and my choice to disable notifications I would leave beacons on for online games.


#11787580 Xbox One - Powerstar Golf - Available Now

Posted by stillshadow on 25 May 2014 - 05:37 AM

Nicely done, Spy! I meant to come back and report my initial plays with this. Awesome the new course is out and beyond cool it is free. Interesting about the new F2P structure. Why not, although the pricing sounds a bit off?

I'm having a lot of fun with it thus far. I can't wait your caddy, though, Spy? Is it a mistake or do you not have a it public? I'm lucky another friend happened to have a level 71 one as well! I'm still working my way through the first course since I take my time.

Putting can be frustrating, although every golf game's putting is. I also have a bit of trouble judging where to place a shot for distance when the green is much higher or lower than me. I can do okay with it but I would rather be more precise.

Where's the save match progress feature? Isn't this 2014? I don't always want to do 18 holes in one sitting.

Anyway, a great game to have digitally that can be enjoyed any time. I look forward to seeing every course and the new one.


#11764252 Xbox One - Powerstar Golf - Available Now

Posted by stillshadow on 16 May 2014 - 10:17 PM

Awesome, yeah with Powerstar Golf the multiplayer is playing in Rivals Mode. This will pair off your friends or strangers and you're going head to head with their score kind of, just bonus for you if you beat them really. There's an achievement to use a buddy's caddy, a valuable resource since the later caddies have 3 better specials in their slots compared to what you start with.

There's 4 player local multiplayer too.


Cool, thanks for the info. Sounds like fun and I'm sure I will be stealing your caddy often, LOL.


#11764116 Xbox One - Powerstar Golf - Available Now

Posted by stillshadow on 16 May 2014 - 09:38 PM

It seems like every console needs a good casual golf game these days. We've got Hot Shots (which I play on Vita still) and Mario Golf on 3DS and now Powerstar. Fine with me since I usually love them.

I just picked this up and will probably start it over the weekend. We can compare scores and stuff, right? I think there are some achievements for friend stuff? Any multiplayer?

Anyway, should be fun.


#11753094 Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Network ID's)

Posted by stillshadow on 13 May 2014 - 05:35 AM

Been playing Mario Kart since the days where you had to send in a Polaroid to Nintendo Power to get listed for the best times. Can't wait for 8 and I need some more CAG friends with Nintendo consoles. NNID is stillshadow and I will add it to the doc now!

It's been too long for a Forza game for me. Starting this tonight ...


#11641533 XBL Deals - Jan 6 - Sep 4, 2014

Posted by stillshadow on 26 March 2014 - 02:54 AM

I've said it before but Halo stuff is one of the few gaming properties I'm a sucker for. The price drop on SA caught my eye and is almost enough to make me bite with my new X1. BUT, if it's truly a permanent price drop what's the rush? I will see if it ends up a GWG soon or gets a bigger sale.


#11566290 Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare - Now available on Xbox One and 360!

Posted by stillshadow on 28 February 2014 - 11:25 AM

I played this for the first time tonight and had a lot of fun. Garden Ops has a lot directly lifted from ME3, which is fine by me, with a tower defense element. Great for co-op.

The competitive modes were enjoyable, although I got creamed when going out of the Welcome Mat. I will have to try the Classic modes to see if it's any more even without unlocks.

It's definitely addictive with all the unlocks and different classes. It's simple and straightforward, which I appreciate from how crazy some multiplayer games can get.

I didn't have any issues finding games or with uneven matches tonight, for what it's worth. I look forward to seeing you guys around the game!


#11559722 Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare - Now available on Xbox One and 360!

Posted by stillshadow on 26 February 2014 - 05:25 AM

I will be starting this probably tomorrow night on 360 (Xbox One arrives with the Titanfall bundle) if anyone wants to add me or join up if we are already friends.

ME3? Gears Horde? Count me in.


#11536378 Fable Anniversary - Out Feb. 4, 1st run copies w/ bonuses

Posted by stillshadow on 18 February 2014 - 07:01 AM

I loved this game. I just finished up the final final battle at the end of TLC. I actually missed the Xbox generation so this was my first time through after enjoying Fables 2 and 3. It's easy to get sucked in and just do one more quest. Achievements are very doable as well as I didn't hunt too many yet ended up with close to 800.

Tip to make the end boss a piece of cake? Max out slow time and berserk with the solus greatsword. Well, one short of max on berserk if you are a good character. I literally took him out in 5 minutes without using more than a few health potions.
