On one hand, good for Massive - on the other hand they'll probably want to push this out as a yearly title. I don't know if that'll work out for them.

It's a (somewhat) MMO, so yearly expansions. More than yearly, I believe. They have three listed already. Hopefully they come up with some new enemies. And someone that isn't named Alex.

LMAO, hearing "they killed Alex" over and over is getting kind of funny. I am having a pretty good time on the PS4 with it. Would have been a lot more fun last night and earlier today if UPS wouldn't have sat on my copy for twenty four hours before attempting to deliver it. I did laugh though when I saw UbiSoft were offering four packs of uniforms for $4.99 a pop. Servers are down and I've got to wonder if they are scrambling to add more hardware. I've had several quest/mission bugs so far and a few disconnects too. Still enjoying it quite a bit.

LOL! Well...yeah! But we're not on Psychology Today's website we are on Blue's. And it was the point not the way I made it that matters. They keep trying to force shit on their consumers.

just tired of hearing that line.. like its meaningful in some way, when its actually completely meaningless... probly because tons of people i know say that shit constantly

I hear ya. My Boss is one of them. That is why it popped out. Either way thanks for reminding me it was Einstein. I had forgot and Google gave me the Urban Dictionary instead of the real deal.

Been a fun thread. Hope some of you can have a cold one and a rolled one... or just chill out.

its a quote from einstein...

pretty tired of people saying this all the time tho - "insanity" is a hell of a lot more broad than that stupid fucking "definition"

So they're trying to be like Apple even though Microsoft is a software company and Apple is a hardware company. I'm not sure there's enough room for two closed systems, and they're not going to beat Apple at Apple's own game. Microsoft will just squeeze itself out going this route.

They keep doing the same thing yet expect a different outcome which is the Urban Dictionary's definition of insanity. Should have learned by now... even before all that crazy shit with the XBOne which should have been the biggest wake up call so far. Yet they failed to learn anything from their mistakes. Only thing keeping them going is that they are too big to fail and their tactics are used world wide. The corporation I work for does the same things. Hell, our government does this very same shit. We have service/product X which we want to replace product A with yet everyone knows that product X is not as good as product A... but by using subversionary measures they make it the prevalent product. Of course this has been going on forever.

Ah, you know you can count on M$ to fuck shit up even when they don't mean too.

nin, my plan is to switch completely to Steam OS when Windows 7 is phased out. Unless we all hear the loud pop heard around the world... that sound of M$ pulling their heads out of their ass.

I think you mean darkzone, darkzone, darkzone.

Also I learned that you'll be able to build a currency converter in your main base to convert PvE money into darkzone money, so i guess if you just like grinding PvE then you can still buy good weapons in the DZ.

I'd rather be a sneaky ninja in the DZ, lureing unsuspecting noobs into my web of lies and deceit, playing friendly, then stabbing them all in the back and stealing their shit.

Oh, to hear the cries and lamentations that i heard in the beta again... it filled my soul. So much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

LMAO, thanks. You brought tears to my eyes but from laughter.

I wanted to get it on the PC but waiting to hear about the hacks and need to see just how bad it is. Please, let us know. If its not too bad I may pick it up for the PC.

Getting Dark Souls 3 on the PS4 and Steam. I've logged more hours in Souls games than any others.
Why do you buy it on both? Just curious. I bought the original Dark Souls on Steam and liked it so much I bought it used on PS3 because it felt a little more crisp on the console.

You nailed it. I too felt the controls were better on the console. Playing on the PC had a slightly different feel even with a controler. So why both? I want to see it with the graphics cranked up high on the PC but when it comes to the multiplayer I will spend most on my time on the PS4 since there are a lot less hackers. The PC version of any game will always have ten times more hackers even on Steam. I'm still going to have a good time on the PC but I think the PS4 will get more attention... at least for me. I don't care what platform it is if the game is great I will play it. Though not on the XBOne... doing my best not to buy one.

Glad to see XCOM 2 hanging in there. I am still having a great time playing it. Fallout 4, not so much. Got bored quickly. Getting Dark Souls 3 on the PS4 and Steam. I've logged more hours in Souls games than any others. Close second would be XCOM games. Would not hesitate to buy the DLC for either series... especially at a GMG discount.

Have they nailed down the multiplayer? I know the bell summons/bell maiden from Bloodborne is not in. Instead you use an item that does not vanish from your inventory. I hope you can only be invaded if you have summonsed help. I know a lot of PvPers were complaining about invading to find a group of two or three people they had to take on all at once... but that is the way I want it to be. I hated playing late night/early morning and having the same over powered ganker invade me repeatedly and there was nothing you could do to stop it at times. The flip side, at times it was fun setting up traps for them. Of course when the game first releases that won't be as much of a problem until people start to learn all the tricks. Got release day forecasted as off.

Because of the 3rd person cover mechanic it allows time to place shots and move while being concealed from taking damage. Not to mention you can adjust getting better with time and practice. It's not so bad. I am not as fast as I would be with a mouse and keyboard, no doubt, but then I don't have to be due to the games mechanics.

Yes, it is a shooter but not a true shooter. So again, I don't see it as requiring a mouse and keyboard. I admit I hated 3rd person shooters in the past and now they rarely make a 1st person shooter that I really enjoy. Worse, when they do make one I love the hacks can ruin it. So yeah, PS4 for me.

But... that means you have to play a shooter with a gamepad!

It's a 3rd person shooter. Only time it goes first person is if you have a high power scope. Not really a shooter... if it were I would agree with you that it would be far better played on a PC with mouse and keyboard.

Loving XCom 2 with over seventy hours of fun so far. And I'm getting the Division on the PS4 to avoid some of the asshat hackers on the PC. I just took a look at the PC version in the open beta to see what I was missing with the better graphics. Other than that I wanted to keep my distance until it's release date. I had a blast playing Co-Op for about ten hours with my brother and a friend and I spent a dozen or more hours running the dark zone solo and loving it. Yes, there were people out to gank me but that made it more intense. More times than not I would get my goodie bag attached to the helo's rope before they were able to kill me. So I got the last laugh more times than not since they were now marked rogue and were left with no goodies.

I feel as if I have already got my money's worth from the Division and it hasn't even shipped yet. Plus, I am very much looking forward to Dark Souls 3 on the PC and the PS4. Gonna be a great year. I will log hundreds of hours on XCom 2 and DS3.

Yeah, I wish. We have a fiber solution going into our area, but the way they are doing it totally sucks. Basically they cut the neighborhoods up in to areas/sections. To get the fiber in your area/section done, 50% of the homes in the area/section have to "commit" to signing up for the service. Since my house is in a section with lots of older citizens, the likelihood of reaching 50% is about 0%.

The fiber is going in literally across the street from me. My buddy 200 yds north, on a corner, doesn't get it either, but the people on the other three corners do.

What company is doing that? In this area At&t will take years if they ever put it in and Comcast is trying to get their network up to speed. Last time I talked to one of their guys they still had no idea when they would be able to provide gigabit speeds. Not to mention their price point and 1k install fee is a bit much. I'd be surprised if anyone offers gigabit in this area in the next two years. Not that most of us need anything that fast.

Can't wait for the release candidate so I can try it out. I still hope they pull it off just because I would rather have a good game then the alternative. I know a lot of people are still interested because they are expecting a train wreck. We've seen plenty in this industry. They can be fun to watch, no doubt.

I've been watching from the sidelines for years and can't wrap my mind around it. This has got to be some of the best marketing evar! If they're not already doing it I predict there will be studies done to gain insight on how RSI was able to keep the crowd funding alive and at this fevered pace for so many years. It's fucking crazy!

There is a nice mod that holds the count down timer on missions until you lose concealment. I find it much better since it allows me to play stealthy until I am ready to go loud. I agree with the use of grenades since they are a great way of removing cover and armor. But I try to always kill with gun so I can get those loot drops. They make a bit of a difference by buffing your guns.

There are a lot of mods out already. You can tweak your starting stats and even give your squads strong rifles which can make the game far too easy on lower difficulty levels. The beauty of it is that it is so very easy to mod.

So find your sweet spot with some mods and restart the game... enjoy one of the best turn based games to date. Yeah, I love it. So many sweet little touches. I have the president as a grenadier and the game nicknamed him Junkyard. Too funny. Also got several other characters from the real world and movies. Fun times.

More of the same (plus so much more) is utterly fantastic in this case. Going to be playing this game a lot. Loving it. What they have done with the modding this time around is just so sweet. I hope they are working on the expansion... yes, already.

They are trying to give away TV services for free with broadband activation's here in California. My guess it is a feeble attempt at inflating their falling consumer numbers. Hard to ask for the same rate on commercials when their user base is declining so sharply. And since advertisements are their big money they are taking a hit.
