I'm so excited. The launch will probably be a mess but I'm prepared for it.

You're going to have such a blast. The first night I played on the ps3, I ignored the story and just drove around the huge loop of the highway, counter clockwise. This is the first GTA I can recall where the map is totally open from the get go, with no gates or restrictions.

Can you limit your game to just friends?

Yep! I have mine set to Crew Only, so only folks from the Blue crew can join.

In the words of the failed X-Wing Pilot
"Almost.. there...."

So (knowing this day was coming for awhile) I've compiled a few GTA tips/features to look out for. Hopefully others will chime in as well.

  • There's a camera setting for the car, which can be set to high. It provides a lot move visibility, and you're not having to constantly tilt one of the sticks to see, like in GTA4.


  • Don't miss Chakra Attack on the talk radio station (about 3:00 on the dial). It's a fucking riot.


  • Your camera/first person view can be set by default, and it can be different between out of the car and in the car. So if you want first person while on foot, and 3rd person in car, you can set it up as such. Of course, you can still cycle cameras at any time. (For me, personally, I hated the lack of visibility in car. It was a lot harder to judge where you could fit through. But it's still cool it's an option.) Also, each model of vehicle has it's own unique dash/interior.


  • Don't miss the electric cars in game, especially the Voltic. It hauls ass while being almost totally quiet.


  • Don't miss the Epsilon missions, when they popup. They're a wonderful rip on Scientology.


  • Don't forget to take a motorcycle or even a bicycle out in first person. It's amazing, and the motorcycles provide an insane point of view and you zig zag through traffic at high speed.

    Apparently the first 4 episodes of Thrones are already "out there", as of last night. I bet HBO is fuming right now...

    Wow, that sucks. I would have signed up for $15/mo HBO GO if it wasn't Apple exclusive. I don't own anything with an i prefix and never plan to.

    I would love to sign up also, but (even though I use their store a little) I didn't want to be chained to Apple. I'd much rather just sign up with HBO directly in 3 months, if that's an option.

    If anyone's using it currently, I'd love to hear your experience. Hows the catalog?

    HC certainly changes how you gear your chars, and adds considerable fear of dying, but I'm not really finding that tension enjoyable. It's been more of a limiting factor that's kept us playing on fairly safe (and boring) difficulties so far.

    Precisely why I don't play HC. Some may like it, and more power to them, but to me the idea would lead towards playing much more conservatively.

    I started a new game on hard, and the only NPC in my party is the warrior. The NPC members are terrible. Their stats are all over the place, they take bad skills, and bad spells and are like having a party of handicapped players. I'm not saying they should have all 18s in their stats, but some of them have like 10s, 11s, etc in important stats for their class.

    I would urge you to constructively document that @ http://forums.obsidian.net/forum/87-pillars-of-eternity/ . They seem pretty good about listening to their community, even if they might not agree with it (or agree that it's a problem). But it never hurts to ask.

    He also doesn't say it's a Kickstarter system.

    I'm not sure if I should give you the Jackie Chan "WTF.jpg" or the Ellen Ripley quote about IQs dropping sharply while I was away...

    Tell ya what: I'm going to leave you a collection of dequer's greatest hits, and you can decide the wisdom of freakie deakie.

    There's this.

    And this.

    And this.

    And this right here.

    This brilliant fucking gem.

    A Deep Thought.

    Another deep thought.

    Yet another, on the topic of Star Citizen.

    An important message to developers.

    And another.

    On the topic of reading.

    But then chiding someone else for not reading.

    More chiding.

    Deep thoughts on blizzard.

    More deep thoughts.

    Oh wait, reading is bad again.

    And that's just from the 5 most recent pages of deeqism. God knows how many brain cells died when he typed that. Please do not encourage him.

    Sounds like there is a system in place, under the hood, that allows people to "donate while no one else is"

    So, you have your two options:
    1) Donate
    2) Donate as reserve only.

    And where exactly is this documented? Because I've backed 45 projects and never once been asked that.

    They're too far away with less than 24 hours to go. They're not going to make it.

    Shows how much you know about the way crowdfunding works. There's always a big push towards the end. Always.
    I was keeping an eye on the last few hours. Something fishy was going on. A huge batch of pledges came in to get it over $600K, and then they started losing money as new pledges came in. It was like someone propped it up to get it over $600K, and then started reducing their pledge as other new pledges came in.

    I mean we've seen crowdfunding pops before, but they made 20% of the required minimum in the last day, all to end at just %0.3 above the required minimum. It's all very unusual.

    It does seem odd they scraped by with just $1700 past their initial goal.
