Really nice review of the press beta: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5RAs9BJ-bLU

I'm so torn! I have credit at GameStop from trade-ins, enough to get one or two games (AAA + indie). More than a few good ones coming out in May. I've been putting of Reaper because of it. It's a toss-up right now between Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein. The fact that Wolfenstein is causing me to reconsider getting Watch Dogs says something. Then there's Transistor, and I've been interested to try out Killer is Dead, which is on sale on Steam right now. Decisions, decisions.

I hear you. I don't have much interest in Watch Dogs myself so the choice between that and Wolf is pretty easy :D

As to Reaper or not, I am incredibly biased. :D

That's a great deal. It's reduced price and you get a Steam key too...

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/17/2014 at 02:44am

Ha, and I just got around to preordering yesterday. I guess I should have waited a day.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/19/2014 at 05:39pm

pre-loading it now on Steam. It's 40 gigs. Holy shit.

I hope this game is awesome.

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/19/2014 at 08:53pm

I'm glad I cleaned up my Steam hard drive the other day. I have 100 gb free out of a 1TB. I probably need to clean it some more.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/19/2014 at 09:33pm

If I get a few more games like this i'll need to get a larger hard drive! Then again, I could clean up some old games I don't play much as well. I think we'll be in a new age when a game cracks 100G. Which may very well be the next Elder Scrolls game. smile

I did a very, very stupid thing yesterday, and am suffering the consequence now. Clean wipe and install of everything :(.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/20/2014 at 12:51am

Wow. Well, sometimes you need to do that. Good luck and hope you had backups of the important stuff!

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/20/2014 at 03:26am

Oh dear. I'm almost afraid to ask, but I must: What was the very stupid thing?

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/20/2014 at 03:29am

Yeah, I kind of what to know too but I don't want to "dwell on the pain" in whatever way it turned out to be bad. worried

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/20/2014 at 05:10pm

Would you knowingly stick your hand into a box of poisonous spiders? I did the internet equivalent. I downloaded an untrustworthy .exe, and then ran it. I can't explain it. The only excuse I can muster is that I've only been in a PC environment for two years (all Mac, prior), and my brain had a moment of "Well, it's not like it can kill my system." It can, kids. It can.

Oh man. Yeah, that happened to my wife a bit ago. It looked like an update for Firefox and it exploded the computer. I was able to beat it into submission but WOW it exploded with spyware in seconds.

Windows really is a cesspool security wise.

PS The New Order is fun. Lot's to say about it and i'll save it for the roundtable/future review.

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/21/2014 at 01:53am

Excellent! Glad you're enjoying it, and can't wait to hear the good news :)

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/21/2014 at 04:38am

Did you pick it up scrypt? I wasn't sure how that turned out.

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/22/2014 at 02:53am

I haven't decided yet. Watch Dogs was the whole reason I got a Ps4, so to change gears at this point would be tough. However, Wolfenstein seems to have the power to do that.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/22/2014 at 05:40am

You got a PS4? Awesome. I've heard Wolfenstein: New Order is awesome on the PS4 so you have great options in getting it. I can't say which you'd prefer.

That said, I really have been loving the shit out of Wolfenstein. I hope they release DLC for this one because i'd love more of it.

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/22/2014 at 12:46pm

I've had one since launch. I haven't been playing it because... well, there hasn't been much to play on it. Watch Dogs was supposed to be included in the bundle I pre-ordered, but delayed, and now it's finally coming out. I might wait until both have been out for a week, to get a general consensus. Your vote for Wolfenstein means a lot :)

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/24/2014 at 05:49pm

This game is incredible. I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't played it, or haven't gotten far enough into the game yet, but one of the most over-the-top things ever just happened and it made me realize that The New Order balances absolute insanity and excess with poignancy on the head of a pin, and doesn't seem to ever lose the balance. I'm just blown away. Not done yet, I'm not even sure how far through I am. I'm intentionally avoiding walkthroughs or anything like that.

But seriously, over 7 hours in I can't recommend this enough. If it was over now it would be $60 well-spent.

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/24/2014 at 06:06pm

Goddamnit, Travis. I was 80/20 in favor of Watch Dogs. Is it worth going into debt $60?

scrypt   Supporter wrote on 05/24/2014 at 06:16pm

Nevermind. I did it. I hate you both. (Not really. I love you!)

Travis   Admin wrote on 05/24/2014 at 08:00pm

Haha, I hope you dig it.

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 05/24/2014 at 11:42pm

It's a great game. One of the most satisfying games of the last bit. Not finished with it yet, kind of want to take my time.
