I feel quite redundant as a Wizard after receiving Exile from Itzpalt. This hotshot wrecks everything, apparently doesn't run out of MP/spells and he keeps up with my fairy. I should have rolled an archer since I'm currently blasting with my pistol at enemies, hoping I get 'em before he does and for saving my spells. What's the point of worshiping the god for mages and then receiving a pet which outclasses you in every way.
>> No.48034  

pets start to fall off without gene grinding once you get to the second continent, whereas you still get stronger.
or so I'm told.
what you should've rolled in a lich wizard, so you can wear real equipment.

>> No.48036  
After clearing some dungeon levels I realized he isn't totally unstoppable. He can't take much hits, likes to run up on enemies and his spells are only effective against single enemies. If things get tougher for him and easier for me, then I definitely push up my gene skill.

My first wizards were lichs and I had some problems with them. Very low charisma makes it difficult to obtain a sufficient amount of pets ergo makes escort quests tough and every vendor starts to hate your guts. Also I don't want to spend my first three starter feats on charisma to balance this out. The fairy has better resistance, speed and DV stats than lichs and every other race and so far I had no problems with my equipment limit. If I find some enchanted stuff I'd like to use, then I make inferior material scrolls to push it to mica, scale, paper or whatever. Works for now but I'm afraid it won't work later in the game.

learn the game on classic casual, including the maps, and general strategies. Even if you don't have a mic, as long as you can listen and follow the guy with one, it'll mostly work itself out. It also helps if you don't take 5 full seconds of standing still to type 1-5 word responses in teamchat.

higher level play does require a lot of teamwork, and voice communication is key. That much is true regardless of genre for multiplayer team-based games, from Tera to starcraft. CS:GO is no different in that regard, really.

I just wanted to play video games on my new 3ds. I had the crazy idea that if I bought my games from a smaller store it would somehow make me feel better. I was really looking forward to buying my games there too since they seem to be the only store in Canada that was willing to stock that loli curry making game for the vita. It's not like I wanted that limited edition anyway.

Well now that I'm just buying off amazon, what's everyone's favourite 3ds game so far? I've only played Link Between Worlds and Bravely Default so far and neither has really wowed me. I'm trying to order Etrian Odyssey 4 and Rune Factory 4 right now though. Am I in for the same crushing disappointment?

Finally beat Dark Souls, so I'm all ready for the second game. Pretty good overall. Fuck that Magnus boss fight though. Eventually just wound up cheesing it via the exploit.
>> No.48197  
it's not until NG+ that things get challenging in dark souls.

In normal mode, the boost physical defense/poise + fire resist (if needed) + +5 black knight halberd means you can face tank nearly any boss and kill it in about 10 swings (and they generally flinch after the 4th hit in a row).

Really, the only boss that gets kinda stupid is the lava one that you need to have him jump off the cliff for you, as his normal phases are incredibly difficult to predict and evade consistently and you can only damage him outside of ranged/magic is after he misses one specific attack.

And the expansion bosses are really lackluster. The fights themselves are pretty and have one or two cool and unique quirks to them, but 90% of them is block block dodge-roll block dodge-roll dodge-roll SWING ONCE, repeat and it gets really old really quick. Also, they 1-3 shot you right through medium-weight +5/15 maxed armor.

In the second clip, the car has less detail, the searchlight seems to be missing, and the reflections on the bridge look bad. The viewing angle and field of view look a little different too; I think the first one makes the action look heavier.

Dark Souls 2 is fun, but I can't consider it better than the first game from what I've played thus far. Feels like they designed the whole game to be played co-op, with large mobs of enemies quite frequent. The game is also much more hostile and out to get you, with traps and ambushes fucking everywhere. This is would be a good thing if it weren't for the fact that some are pretty much impossible to survive/avoid without foreknowledge of the event.

Still good though. Would recommend.

I hope this puts to rest the whole misconception that being a kickstarter backer makes someone an "investor."

>> No.48449  
What did they give them the money for, then? I'm pretty sure it's because they wanted the idea to come to fruition, which it probably will with big money behind it, and because they wanted the kickstarter reward. Facebook doesn't come into the picture.
Hipsters everywhere are probably crying about the involvement of a "triple A" company, but who cares about hipsters? The only downside is that this implies an infusion of Facebook's corporate greed, but that sort of thing was bound to happen eventually.

I'm guessing they believe the idea that will come to fruition will be significantly different from the idea they were hoping for (and believed was presented to them) when they initially backed OR.

I feel they are entitled to their upset. Even if what happened was not technically wrong or against KS rules it seems dubious in an ethical sense. I didn't follow OR but I can sympathize with the people who are angry. Hell, even people who didn't back it are allowed to be upset or at least disappointed that a piece of potential technology is likely going to end up worse now.

I think the takeaway here is that Kickstarter is not a good system. Which of course many of us already knew but hopefully this debacle has opened a few more eyes.

>What did they give them the money for, then?
As >>48447 said, people have this misguided idea that giving people money on Kickstarter makes them investors, and therefore gives them a say in the company's decisions.
Giving an entity money through Kickstarter is strictly a donation. Technically, they can even just take your money and run as long as they fulfill the stretch goal rewards since those are the only things that the donator is legally entitled to. Pic related.

Anyway, >>48449, the reason so many peoples' panties are in a twist over this is because Facebook is a social company, not a gaming company. Now that they have control of the Rift, which was supposed to be the next big thing in gaming, they'll push it towards social instead.
So essentially what this all means is that none of us can be the little girl anymore.

This reminds me of when a bunch of publishers started forcing youtube to be even more insane about copyright and the response from a few guys here was "ha ha who cares about internet freedoms slowly being taken away, i hate pewdiepie!!!!!". Being that simple minded probably feels really nice
>> No.48460  
The discussion wasn't about the legal implications of doing this, but rather about the ethical implications. If I give you a dollar to buy me a certain drink, you have no legal obligation to buy me a drink - you can just take the money and run with it, I gave it in good faith that you'd buy me a drink for it. You could also buy a completely different drink, and you'd be completely blameless legally speaking. However, it still makes you an asshole if you pull something like that when somebody gives you money in good faith on the basis of an informal promise.

Oculus took the money and used it to get super rich at the expense of the product they promised people. They are fully allowed to do it, but they're still assholes for doing it.
>> No.48461  
Not that bun. I don't get where you're getting the idea that they didn't deliver the "product they promised people". They delivered the dev kit as promised.
>> No.48463  
They delivered the backer rewards. That was their legal obligation. The informal promise, the moral obligation, was for them to execute the project they asked funding for in the way described on their Kickstarter page. It reads, in bold text, "Designed for gamers, by gamers." Now it's being designed by a social media giant, for the users of social media. While Oculus kept their legal obligations, they did not develop the virtual reality device 'for gamers, by gamers' they said they'd develop.

It'd be a different thing if the final product had been on the market for years and there's plenty of games out there. But with only beta versions being available at this time, there aren't any real games (not counting prototypes) truly supporting Oculus Rift yet, and with Facebook's involvement, it's going to be a low priority issue, or perhaps just dropped from the roadmap in general.
>> No.48464  
The dev kit was "[d]esigned for gamers, by gamers" as their "informal promise" went, and so was the dev kit #2. They sold out after that.

Just because Oculus was bought, it doesn't mean Facebook is going to immediately shove its shit on Oculus team, devs and users. Facebook is making a long term investment on VR here. It seems highly unlikely that Facebook is going to make FB login or FB ads present for the initial consumer version.

Before the market that Oculus has gotten hyped up cools down, the consumer version of Rift is likely to be released which means we're probably looking at a time of less than a year from dev kit #2's announcement.

Dev kit #1: for gamers, by gamers.
Dev kit #2: same deal.
Consumer version: likely to have minimal or no Facebook service integration.

There's no doubt that Oculus would have been so successful without that amazing Kickstarter campaign, but just how far do they have to carry out this "moral obligation"? A decade-long catering for the people who bought the dev kits through Kickstarter?

>Dev kit #1: for gamers, by gamers.

By gamers, for developers, you mean. The end-user that just wants to play games can't do shit with the dev kits; you need to jump through all kinds of hoops to play some prototypes that don't work well because it's still a beta.

>Facebook is making a long term investment on VR here. It seems highly unlikely that Facebook is going to make FB login or FB ads present for the initial consumer version.
As evidenced by which previous Facebook acquisition exactly? The only thing Facebook acquired that it hasn't raped yet is WhatsApp, because that was only a month ago and they haven't had the time to rape it yet.

>Consumer version: likely to have minimal or no Facebook service integration.
Entirely baseless speculation. It's going to be a while before we see the consumer version, and in that time Facebook will have definitely done their thing to it.

>but just how far do they have to carry out this "moral obligation"?
To the release of the consumer version, and thus the completion of the project they asked funding for. After that, they're free to screw it up any way they like; backers got what they asked for, nothing about continued support was promised.

I got Y recently and enjoyed it immediately. Everything seemed pretty fresh and really cute, it might have helped that I chose the female player character. It is extremely easy with Exp Share on though, like silly easy, and most of the new pokemon haven't won me over but I've still enjoyed exploring the world and dressing up and all that. When I did the same thing before and bought a DS to play Black/White I actually had buyer's remorse, so I was afraid I might be repeating a mistake. I've been satisfied though.

long answer short, the object that's being modeled doesn't have random textures at all (wood patterns, leaf patterns, traces of wear and tear, all of that stuff), and the lighting in smashbros shines on the dull in such a way that you don't have to worry about shadows too much - just normal shading on the doll is fine, you don't have to worry about the shadow it casts on the ground (or how the lighting is reflected by the facial features, or how random the moustache line is, having to change moustache line/hair structure a bit to reflect wear and tear between scenes, etc)

With the huge Kalos dexes, Exp.

Civilization Beyond Earth has been announced, coming Autumn 2014.

It looks like a mix of Civ V and Alpha Centauri. All civs are human. Technology is now a 'web' instead of a 'tree' (no screenshots of that yet), and apparently your tech is very different from other civs' techs in the endgame. According to the info so far you have to choose between three different paths during the game: Supremacy, which is using technology to make mankind independent from its environment, Purity, which focuses on terraforming the planet to become Earth-like, and Harmony, which is mankind adapting to their new environment. Each path has its own win condition. There are two shared win conditions, which are military victory and contacting intelligent alien life (sounded to me like Science Victory with a different theme).

According to "sources". No indication of what those sources are, just "sources". It could be legitimate head honchos, or it could be the author's wishful thinking. Or it could've been that meeting yesterday where they decided they needed an attention-grabbing headline. Whatever the case, we just have to take the author's word for it that such a big thing is actually happening.

And until we have more than this one nobody's word for it, you shouldn't trust anything you read. Journalism nowadays is dead, and most sites just mindlessly copypaste hearsay.

A year ago, someone tried an experiment with gaming sites to see how hard it is to be a "source".

Apollo Justice uses story elements from the Phoenix Wright games in general (don't think there were specific elements unlike PW2 and 3, but at least #1 needs to be played for familiarity with Phoenix).
I haven't played Ace Attorney 5 (no 3DS), but from the previews I've seen both Phoenix and Apollo are in the story, meaning it likely depends on all four previous AA games.

I, personally, am quite fond of the game. I've played several trials over the years, but this is the first time that I took the plunge and bought it. The +9 all stats booser in the pack is very useful, it let me get up to 1M skill points in two weeks.

Currently, I just finished drones V, and am working on getting some of the basic seaman ship skills up to make farming lvl. 3 missions easier and quicker. That's the short term. As for the medium term, I need to work on finding a passive form of income to supplement mission running, most likely leaning on production combined with riding the mineral market and refining. From there, the longer term goals are to add invention to the production, give PI a whirl, and eventually have enough skill points to hold my own (with damage output) in pvp.

Eve is a fun PvP sandbox, but it does take a while for the PvP to come online, at least one T2 weapon (guns/drones/missiles) is just about required, and each size tier takes an additional 3x as much time to get, but if you don't have tons of hours to pour into the game on a weekly basis, you won't fall behind your friends if you start at the same time in the same way you would a traditional (wow-like) MMO.

On the subject of minerals, you may have seen this already: http://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/reprocess-all-the-things
They're changing the ease of refining to benefit players with SP invested in the skills, making it all far less lucrative for mission runners doing it on the side.

On a 21 day trial and a month from one of these $2c month subs you can train enough skills to make more than enough isk to buy a PLEX aka a month sub. A significant proportion of EVE players have put no IRL money down for years.

Mage is mostly a support class. They're meant to buff/debuff while the other guys take care of the enemy.

Sorcerer is what you want for annihilating things with magical nukes from the sky. They also have better MATK growth, so you're hurting your offensive potentials by staying as a mage.

You can play mages offensively, but I found it's only effective against boss enemies, since exploiting their elemental weakness usually yields a higher reward. You can make drakes a joke by spamming ice at their weak spot, for example. Although sorcerers can also do that, and to a much greater effect as well.

I increasingly feel like people are seriously considering "being right" in an argument to be more important than giving good arguments for your position. I guess a lot of people have always been that way, but it seems like I've lately been seeing more and more non-arguments like 'you're in position X so you have no right to be talking about it', 'what you say is wrong and you should feel bad about being wrong', and so on.

'Cautiously optimistic' is just shorthand for 'I'm keeping an eye on it in case it turns out good, but I'm not getting my hopes up too much'. Which in many cases is a far more reasonable position than 'I haven't seen or played it but it sucks!' or 'I've yet to play it but it's totally awesome!'.

I'd say it's a lot easier, although the game becomes somewhat unplayable after 1910 or so when you have commies, fascists, anarcho-liberals, and jacobins (minus one for your government type if you've passed all the reforms) each revolting twice a year.
In terms of blobbing potential, you're seriously limited if you start with a small accepted culture population since you can't force culture conversions with a button click or add them by conquering vast tracts of land, but it's much easier to reach a critical mass of military force that makes you unstoppable.

That's one of the things I dislike about EUIV, to be honest, I prefer the way EUIII handles it. Or the way cultures assimilate in VicII. But in EUIV, by just spending some DIP points, you can completely eradicate Greek culture in less than 10 years.

Neither site posted any review of the game (by any author), and Kotaku didn't even make a post to announce its release.

In light of this, I'd say complaining about Quinn on a professional level is no better than complaining about Mozilla's former CEO because he voted against gay marriage.

but it clearly was related.
Either she is an anti-social nutjob, and the only avenue for being introduced to men is through production companies (somewhat plausible, as she is an active SJW womyn), or she was deliberately trying to forward her product with extra "advantages" given to those in a position to do so, or she's a mere slut and slept with them as a thank you for taking the time to actually do the job they are supposed to (People being paid to do a job and actually doing it is somewhat contrary to SJW beliefs, so this possibility be taken out of context somewhat).
Alternatively, any combination of the above.
>> No.49311  

Also it's related because her "career" of being a game developer is 95% personal blogging about stupid sjw shit, and 5% actually developing games (one game, which was a self-absorbed low effort text adventure that really isn't a game in the first place).

Well, maybe it's more like 50% personal blogging, 45% sucking and fucking people in the industry, and 5% pretending to make video games. What a career!

it's like >>49328 only filled with "pls donate money to my paypal" spam and without the humor. Change oppression to depression in the link to view it yourself. I strongly, strongly recommend having adblock on else you'll get popups and shitty auto-play video ads.
Actually, that's not quite true. There is a good amount of humor.
She thinks that people with depression or PTSD are like children or women or dogs and can't help themselves, and shouldn't be held accountable for their actions, analogous to a dog crapping on the carpet because he isn't housebroken, only without the ability to learn (such as a dog learning how to poop only outside and never in the house). She's such an egotistical cunt, she only "cares about her cause" in the sense that she feels they are lower on society's totem pole and pitying them makes her feel better about herself. If she wasn't such a basket case, I'd feel sad for her, but she's trying to dig downward in an attempt to get out of the hole she dug herself into; it's both amusing and humorous.

Get your friends to try Dota 2.
It's the moba that kicked guinsoo off their dev list (he then joined LoL's dev group).
It plays similar to LoL (league was based on Dota, after all), only there is no bullshit of buying heros or rune pages or any of that other bullshit where you have to pay money or grind stupid amounts of games to meet the minimum requirements of competitive play. The only things sold are tickets to watch tournaments and 100% cosmetic items.

The learning curve is notably higher as there are multiple viable meta strategies (league only has one) and a much stronger focus on ganking and not dying (you don't gain xp while dead, much higher max level, and you don't gain xp/second as in LoL).
