  1. 2016 D1P trophy competition

      It's pretty GA-ROOVY!
  2. 2016 D1P trophy competition

    I have like 15 plats this year but it doesn't matter because someone who doesn't even post here will post again near the end of the year taking two, if not three categories. What can you do? I suppose I could have done better if I tried! And too bad we didn't have this around last year because some of those Super Meat Boy trophies I earned had some crazy rare trophy percentages!
  3. Return to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are out?

    I just played through Arkham Asylum. Keep in mind this is my 8th time playing this game so I'm somewhat familiar with it. There are many areas where the graphical upgrades are clearly evident (everything in the Botanical Gardens is the clear stand out including the boss fight). Plastic curtains in the hospital looks great with a blurred see through and reflective image, and I don't know if these effects were always there, but the doorways you have to encrypt to unlock and Scarecrow's gas are noticeable now. I don't ever recall seeing Batman walk through his gas before. Textures on enemies look better, many newspapers and things on walls are now readable when you zoom in, and rain drips off of Batman and leaves reflective puddles which I don't recall prior. In doorways where loading times were hidden, many open much quicker now. You'll still get the stutters and freezes from various loading areas unfortunately. And a couple of the really dark "muddy" areas are now better lit and easier to navigate.   The nitpicks: I don't know if the lip syncing was always this bad or if I'm just noticing it more, but sometimes the characters look like they just got botox injections. They redid Croc's face and it seems kind of odd with long spikes for teeth, and I had a lot of frame rate issues during the final battle (PS4). I'm no frame rate whore or anything, but it felt like it was half the frame rate as the rest of the game. It takes up 18 gb, with a 6gb update, so I'm curious if there's anybody testing the unupdated version because I'm curious if the rest of the game had frame rate issues at one point.   AA is one of last gen's best. And I think this is a better way to play it. I'm not as fond of AC so I don't know if I'll be able to recognize the upgrades to that game, but even the originals still look and play great. This one just looks better!   As far as your actual question goes, this was originally supposed to come out in July. So the release date of this week was the delay.
  4. I don't know who here watches/listens to the Kinda Funny Gamescast, so I wanted to leave this here. If you're a fan of Xbox, XBLA, indies, games, pancakes, etc, you should take an hour to check this out. It's the history of XBLA told by the guy who basically created it. It's interesting to see its roots, the Microsoft doomsday naysayers, the ups and downs and ups of Microsoft (and Sony), and how the gaming landscape changed because of it. If you're at all interested in gaming, it should prove interesting.    
  5. Oh yeah, I got an XB1, how did I forget? Played through Gears of War Ultimate. The mechanics of the game show their age, but the graphical bump up is nice, and the cutscenes are much improved. And finally I was able to play the Brumak portion of Act V. It's funny how much of Act V was truly missing. I always remember it for being unusually short, but damn, a good 60-90 minutes were cut from it. And it was fun! 4/5    
  6. Disney Infinity 3.0 - The toys to life bug finally hit me, and boy did it hit me hard. It all started with a clearance deal I saw on a Darth Maul character. "That's cool looking" I thought. Then a deal on a game. Then a few more characters... In the span of a week, I had two games, a handful of playsets, and a couple dozen characters. And I feel bad, but not for the reasons you might think. I actually really enjoy the Disney Infinity model, and I feel so bad for never supporting it until it was too late. The leaks of 4.0 sound so amazing, and I didn't show my support for it when it was needed. As far as the game, it's a ton of silly fun. I get 2/5 for being a bad supporter, but the game gets 4/5. Sounds like we'll be getting Lego Dimensions soon as well. Uh-oh...  
  7. Switching to Trevor was always a joy, and one time really sticks out to me. I switched to him as he was taking a dump behind a dumpster. After he finished his business, I had Trevor pull out his phone and take a picture of said dump.   If that isn't a character of the fuckin' decade, I don't what it is.

      You know what's better than receiving an internet hand job?    
  9.   I spit a little when I read that! It's funny because it's true.

    Now was that so hard?!
  11. The PS VR Thread - Let's talk about it

      I guess I was looking for more than "it's fun". Do you enjoy all the modes or are some stinkers? Is there real team work with your friends or do you all just chase red enemies? Is it a game with legs? Will friends want to get together and play this longer than a weekend? You know, those kind of questions...   The drifting thing worries me. Anybody that types using the gyroscope in the controller will tell you that drifting in something as simple as that can irritate the everlasting fuck out of you. But that kind of drifting doesn't require you to turn your body as you're playing. It's been years and Sony hasn't fixed the drifting issue on the controller, and even though we're talking apples to oranges, similar drifting issues on the headset would make me steer clear. This is a piece of tech I want to show tons of people. I don't want to have to teach everybody I show it to "how to fix it when it inevitably fucks up". And I don't want to spin in circles to complete a race. Do the other headsets have drifting issues?
  12. The PS VR Thread - Let's talk about it

    Driveclub is one of my most anticipated VR titles for when I finally pull the trigger, so it sucks to hear so many people talking about nausea when describing their experience with DC. There are VR racers on the other VR devices right? Do they have the nausea issues like DC or is it specific to DC? I understand how your eyes seeing you turning, going up and down hills, and general speed, while your body doesn't feel it can lead to nausea, so I'm wondering if this is going to happen with all racers or if it's something you can get used to. Or if it's Driveclub.

      Well let me ask you this: buying it as a multiplayer game to play with friends (and randoms I guess), how is it?
