News Comments > Skyrim Special Edition Trailer
5. Re: Skyrim Special Edition Trailer Oct 21, 2016, 23:37 Jivaro
 
If the Special Edition runs better than my modded install of basically mesh and texture replacements, than I am all for it. This the one game that suffered the most when I made the change to Win 10...having it running well again without having to sacrifice my eye candy would be great. All the other types of mods will be adapted eventually. The mod community is nothing if not determined and resourceful. Given enough time they have proven that they will add whatever the hell they want to a TES game eventually. (speaking from the PC perspective of course..console modding is not there yet obviously)

this looks AWESOME!

Come on.. playing madden head to head at a table against someone with back to back devices would be super sweet!

I like the way you think...but I will admit that using those controllers to play Madden takes a bit of the appeal out of it.

Amazon has let me down for the first time...

Not getting my 25th Anniversary edition until the 25th because of some sort of shipping delay. It might be a blessing in disguise given my current infatuation with Divinity: Original Sin at the moment. I didn't get to DOS until 2 weeks ago and I have found it hard to play much of anything else since.

Even my *gasp* Madden time has suffered! The horror!!

Ballsy move Nintendo. Doubling down on "we don't compete with the other consoles because we are so different from them". Let's see if they get a "Wii" reception or a "Wii U" reception this time around...

What ever your opinion, the price is right on Path Of Exile.

One of the best F2P games there have been. It's f2p done right.

You might as well give it a go if you got free stuff to spend on it. It's decent fun but not nearly as cutting edge as the PR tries to make it out to be.

I did too. I played it while recovering from back surgery number 2 on PS3. It was like Zelda and God of War decided to get together and make a game. The second one was good as well. If they remaster that and sell them together as a bundle on Steam or PS4, I would probably be willing to take that stroll down memory lane.

Not going to buy it solo right now though...too much other stuff to play atm.

I would laugh forever if Tim Cook donated the Patriots a bunch of iPads. I don't care what tablets people use, but watching the Patriots stick it to Goodell and the league if only in passive-aggressive ways is still highly amusing to me.

I am no Patriots fan, but fuck I hate what Goodell and a number of the more powerful owners are doing to the league.

I think if I tried to eat one of those I'd probably end up in the ER. It does sound delicious but I don't think my gut would ever forgive me.

I guess I'll just stick to a glass of freshly squeezed hobbit juice. Tasty and wholesome!

Corned Hobbit is always allowable as a substitute meat. Dropping the coleslaw in favor of brined elven ears will reduce calories and your likelihood of acid reflux as well.

A swig of Pepto (or whatever brand...just use a liquid and not a tablet or capsule) and than another swig of something to clear your palette....do it before eating the other half. Everybody is different but it works for me. I do it so that I can keep eating my favorite sandwich, a type of Reuben, without side effects that night or the next day.

*My Reuben*
Corned Beef
Sauerkraut
Melted Mozzarella
Chipotle Mayo
Toasted Rye

with a pint of Guinness of course.

This is interesting, but at least it's optional(for the moment).

The whole point of gog.com was to be DRM free. People associate DRM free with, strangely enough, sharing.

I wonder what percentage of gog accounts are actively shared? Probably a fairly high amount, CD ProjektRED.


I see what you mean but there is nothing about this that prevents sharing. There isn't a device limit so at worst it makes sharing a process that the sharer has to be involved in for 1 or 2 extra steps that take a grand total of 30 seconds before the sharee can be ready to roll.

If anything, all this does is make sure you are sharing with whom you mean to be sharing.

News Comments > New WoW Game Director
11. Re: New WoW Game Director Oct 14, 2016, 12:39 Jivaro
 
If there is one thing I am not worried about, it's Blizzard. I think they have proven by now that they are pretty good at putting the right people in the right jobs at the right time the overwhelming vast majority of the time. (Jay Wilson's time on D3 being the only obvious "big" error I would point to) Five to 10 years from now I think we will be looking at Blizzard much the same way we look at them now...however that individual perspective looks for each of us.

As for MMOs, I don't believe they are going anywhere soon on any continent. They will change in various ways though. I see sports games becoming MMO type services that you subscribe too rather than buying a new game every year. Probably the same with fighting games. Both genres have examples of AAA publishers actually trying to do those things and I think they will continue to push that way. They like digital distribution and in-game stores and they dislike disc production and one-time fees..MMOs were gaming's logical virtual first step and now they have to fine tune the experience to fit all the genres.

One positive side effect has been the increasing use of "role playing" in all of the genres. People like having control over character development feeling like they have choices that matter in all games. Its all smoke and mirrors when it comes to choices largely, but the RPG-Lite experience is creeping into every genre and I point at MMOs as the reason.

*wanders off..continuing to think out loud with coffee in hand...*

News Comments > Diablo III Season 8 Details
7. Re: Diablo III Season 8 Details Oct 13, 2016, 09:09 Jivaro
 
I don't mind the seasons, some folks like them and that's fine, but if they want me to put any more time into this game though they will need some new content at the very least and a new class would be helpful as well.

They did a decent job at fixing most of my hangups with this game with the release of the first expansion and the big patch in April (I think it was) was good too...I hope it wasn't so they could just let it sit for another decade after one expansion like it's predecessor. Incremental balancing patches and seasons are fine, but there is too much other stuff to play to keep playing the same game over and over without something new and different to motivate a player. Particularly in single player.

Adding some costume flair items that are mainly just PR material for your other games doesn't count Blizzard!

31. Re: Gone Gold - Skyrim Special Edition Oct 11, 2016, 12:57 Jivaro
 
I see some folks talking about the new version possibly borking mods...

My sort of informed opinion on this is this: Start with a clean install of the Special Edition and boot it up before adding any texture replacement mods. See how it looks, make your decisions from there.

I am fairly certain that mods that replace the textures of vanilla Skyrim will either need to be updated or they will be largely ineffectual. There are some mods that replace vanilla stuff though that will still be better than the Special Edition. If you are unsure go to the Nexus/Workshop/Wherever and read the notes. The author or top commenter probably already answered the question for you.

Lastly, if you have 600 hours into a game, even if it's completely made up of modding time...you got your money's worth and you loved it.

It was yuuuge! And lemme tell ya, it was the best ship ever.

No "game breaking" bugs for me as of yet, I guess your odd is my lucky?

That first one you quoted talks of the expansion pack, which I have not yet installed or played so I can't speak to that specifically. Other than that, I apologize for not having any problems with my game...I guess.
