  • Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    The Simpsons Tapped Out distributed its annual Halloween update today. I'm waiting for my characters to finish their tasks I assigned this morning before I can actually get into starting the storyline.

          Every time I see this thread pop up, I cross my fingers and hope for a No Man's Sky release date.

            Guitar Hero Live is an interesting change to the rhythm game genre.

            The two biggest changes. A) A different guitar button layout of two rows of 3 side-by-side instead of 1 row of 5. B) No add-on songs to buy! At least not as of now. The 3rd change that is just cosmetic, is that the game is all live-action people and crowds. Not animations.

            The guitar button layout takes awhile to get used to. Even though I haven't played a GH game in a few years. I naturally was still looking for a 4th and 5th button.

            The "story mode" of game (called Live) has a bunch of venues and songs to play just like previous versions. The other mode called GHTV gives you access to even more songs to play and two (currently) 24-hr music video channels that you can play songs from on a jump-in/out basis. Right now it looks like the music changes up a bit every 30 or 60 minutes on the two channels. Channel 1 was Rock and channel 2 was more pop songs when I was playing. For example, I played "Epic", and "Cherry Pie" among a couple other songs. It was neat to see the videos again after all these years.

            You can play the streaming video channels as much as you want for free, and you earn coins, xp, levels, and plays. The plays can be used to play any specific song from the GHTV library on-demand. Obviously the Store will let you pay-for-plays and other premiums, but its nice that you don't have to.

            The biggest bonus, no clutter in the Playstation store (in my case) of 100s of songs to have to scroll through and figure out what I want. Currently Rock Band is clogging up the add-on section of the store, and its annoying.

                  Bought and pre-loaded my copy of Fallout 4 (pc) in anticipation of Tuesday.

                  20% off voucher made for a nice discount (12 off the game and 5 off the pass).

                    I got a couple hours in with Fallout 4 last night. My wife got it for PS4 and i got it for PC. I am predisposed to like Bethesda games, so no surprise that I am enjoying it. If I had to describe it, I would say its "Skyrim with guns". They have basically taken all of the mechanics from the Fallout and Elder Scrolls series and packed them in to a single game.

                    I'm glad I ignored all of the internet chatter about bugs, graphics, fps, etc. Because I had a very smooth experience on PC, and my wife didn't notice any issues (yet) on PS4. That said, my PC was built to handle high-end games. My CPU is the only thing that would need upgrading as its from 2011, yet it has performed great on Ultra/High settings.

                    Incomplete Feature List:
                    - Weapon/Armor modding
                    - Scrapping of items for raw materials
                    - Home/Town building
                    - Defense building
                    - Hacking, V.A.T.S., Perks, etc. from Fallout series
                    - No weapon/armor degrading (except for power armor)
                    - Assigning of townspeople to jobs (defense, garden, trading, etc.)
                    - Companions, including option to romance some of them
                    - Areas that are essentially dungeons. Not sure what else to call them.

                    Stats for PC nerds: Intel i7-2600 3.4ghz CPU, NVIDIA GTX 980 3GB, 16GB RAM, Win 7 Ultimate

                      My Black Friday/Cyber Monday purchases for video games were limited. But I did get Dragon Age Inquisition GOTY and Dying Light. Both for PC.

                        Wife picked up Fallout 4 this weekend. Neither of us have played any of the fallout series, but she heard really good reviews of it and wanted to give it a whirl. Not sure when I'll get a chance to give it a whirl.

                            This is a good entry to start on since there is no level cap. So you don't have to be as careful with your perk choices as before. Although it would take to about level 221 or something to get all stats to 10 and perks maxed. So some thought is required.

                            Weapons and armor that you find will improve as you level up. For example the best Power Armor (X-01) won't appear until you are in the 30s somewhere. There is a full set at the top of the Court 35 building (unmarked location) if you wait till your level is high enough. Then you don't have to try to find a random partial set.

                                Clash of Clans made system changes that took effect a few hours ago. Having your town hall destroyed during an attack no longer guarantees a 12-hour shield. That's something that would have been nice to know a day or so ahead of time so some of us could redesign our bases. My base has been attacked five times since I got into the office.

                                Also, for the Simpsons Tapped Out, with regards to the Christmas event, how in the world do you get gifts to give to your neighbors? Is it a timed distribution or an act taken that creates them?
