  1. Big City Stories officially released on August 23rd. (But came out of Beta on August 22nd.)

    The one day head start was absolutely worthless for me as BCS was missing content, the server went down, & they didn't save my city.

    Since then the problems with the server has slowly improved.

    Though I think they would've had less problems if they just gave Mayors an offline mode for their own cities.

    I know one issue I've had with visitors is they might be able to do a little bit of changes to your city while you're making changes.

    One was where someone edited the text I put on the tombstone & the other was when my zombie head was saved in a different location.

    Also the Zoo (expansion) is no longer free.


  2. If I had any hype for No Man's Sky it was probably very little that quickly died off. That plus it didn't help that I got Rebel Galaxy for free or that Master Of Orion really grabbed my interest due to the Mrrshan.

  3. I already have Remember Me for PS3 from PS Plus. I came to hate it as the protagonist had a habit of beating up mentally ill people.

    I kind of want Okami, but I had it for the Wii. And would rather just buy it again even if it's limited to PS3.

    I think I only really liked Resident Evil 2 out of the whole RE franchise. I just can't get myself into other RE Games like I wish I could.

    I think I remember playing Devil May Cry 4 & DMC. I found them okay.

    I never played a Lost Plant game as far as I can remember. I think it would get lost though after how many Space Games come out now with forgettable solar systems.

    Based On these

    2. Over Metal Gear: Micro Transactions that just give you stuff you already have.
    3. Fallout Metal Gear: Because Tunnel Snakes Rule!

  5. Positives I've had so far

    1. I like Space Trucking; a lot.
    2. Some of my recent starting over again from the beginning I was excited.

    Negatives I've had so far

    1. Most of my starting over was because I hate the game's auto saving. Plus I didn't know whether I really wanted to be defiant or settle for being submissive.
    2. Broadside Cannons are really hard to aim. Especially at the beginning.
    3. Faction Stances either barely change or are quest locked. Seriously kills the fun out of smuggling when I still remain neutral with the Militia & hostile with the Cartel. Part of me feels like I should just constantly kill civilians just to see if they'll forever see me as a friendly face.
    4. You can't remain passive. Fighting becomes mandatory in the main missions.
    5. You got to buy (the best) weapons to have a better idea of what kind of risk you're taking. Otherwise everything gets labeled Very High Risk despite having decent Shields. At that point there is no way to tell whether or not you will easily be killed, barely make it to docking, or question why it's labeled as such if you're nearly immortal.
    6. Jump Jets go from being a want to being mandatory. I wanted to focus on 1 solar system at a time. But I found myself quickly rejected for jobs once I sold my Jump Jets after I left the 1st Solar System. So I had to buy them back. Even if that meant selling weapons I wasn't using. Because I already spent 30,000 Credits to join the Mercenaries Guild. Which were the Credits I originally got when I sold the Jump Jets.
    7. Everyone I've come across looks like a clone. That or maybe they're immortal beings with multiple jobs.
    8. Maybe this is just me but I have had a hard time noticing the difference between allies & enemies while doing Mercenary Jobs. I have either targeted or open fire on ships simply for looking evil when they were probably Militia.
    9. The Journey is really more fun than the destination. Enemies are practically always waiting for me at the end of my cargo runs. And while they normally can't kill me it has become tedious.
    10. Can't really enjoy the music as it'll switch to a different song as soon as something happens.
    11. You can't collect ships as you'll instantly sell your previous one once you buy the next.
    12. Unique items from the Merchants Guild or the Mercenaries Guild mostly aren't the best items. (But so far the Merchants Guild has the best Cargo Holds. And I'm a sucker for unique items despite this.)

    I think I had more negatives, but I can't remember them after listing so many.

    I started over again as I don't plan on talking to Orzu for a long time. Currently I replaced the Hammerhead (Rasputin) with a Sturville I got from the Mercenaries Guild. I thought was the fastest ship I could currently get in this solar system only to find about the Icarus & the Barracuda.


  6. My umpteenth starting a new game in Rebel Galaxy

    1. Kept the 500 Credits I was suppose to give to a merchant.
    2. Accepted Orzu's 2nd Mission to destroy 3 containers.
    3. Sold my weapon's (& tractor beam) as it was better to flee than fight.
    4. Went to Merchant's Guild Station (represented by a green Fleur-De-Lis). Joined for 10,000 Credits. And started doing cargo missions for them.
    5. Saved Credits for Mk2 Shields & sold my Standard Hull Plating.
    6. Went to Sandar & accepted the mission to fight some thug.
    7. Told said thug to eat plasma when I didn't even have any guns on my ship.
    8. Allowed him to shoot my Mk2 Shields.
    9. Got bored.
    10. Rammed the front of my ship into the side of the thug's ship. I ended up with 67% Health. The thug ended up dead.
    11. Went onto the next mission where a robot complained that I didn't have a tractor beam.
    12. Will now focus on Space Trucking until I can afford more better equipment for my ship.

  7.  

    Rebel Galaxy seems like one of those games that went off my radar (Probably due to No Man's Sky hype), wouldn't surprise me if I already had it from Games With Gold or Humble Bundle, & now all of the sudden I really want.

    ....

    Wait when did PS Plus for PS4 start giving me games I wanted, but didn't already own?

    Edit

    My bad, I think mistook Rebel Galaxy for Elite Dangerous, or whatever other title that could be mistaken for No Man's Sky.


  8. I'm back to playing Dark Souls as of today.

    I thought about naming my new female thief, Rodham after Hillary Rodham Clinton. But that seemed like an insult to thieves. Perhaps Rodham will be the name of my Dark Souls 2 female.

    My new female thief is now named Mjoll. She is named after Mjoll The Lioness from Skyrim. It also serves as a reminder that my ultimate goal is to get Ornstein's Armor. Though if Mjoll were real she'd be insulted as she hates The Thieves Guild.

    The major difference between Jenny & Mjoll will be the fact Jenny was a Glass Cannon.

    Personal Goals Achieved (Again)

    1. I defeated The Asylum Demon again & got it's Demon's Great Hammer. Though this time around I won't be leveling up my strength to wield it for a long time.
    2. After raising my Faith to 14 I went back to the Valley Of Drakes to pillage the corpses around that Undead Dragon. (I decided to permanently lose 6 Souls.) I'm glad to have Astora's Straight Sword again. I don't remember using it last time but I'm also glad to have the Dragon Crest Shield again. Then I used the (consumable) Souls on me so I could get my strength up to 10.
    3. I easily bought all of the key items of the Male Undead Merchant in Undeadburg again. The Bottomless Box is a necessity when you don't have a way to sell items.
    4. I once again murdered a Crystal Lizard in Undeadburg for Twinkling Titanite. Upgraded Astora's Straight Sword to +2. Now I just one hit kill all Hollows unless I need to shield break them first.
    5. I bought a Spear.... Because I might need it later & didn't want to wait for it to be a "Rare Drop". Had to raise my strength to 11.

    Current Personal Goals

    1. Raise Vitality to the 30 or 50 soft cap.
    2. Raise Endurance to the 40 soft cap.
    3. Upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Titanite Shards.
    4. Go through Blighttown. Most likely defeat Maneater Mildred. And upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Large Titanite Shards.
    5. Remember to equip the Crimson set I will find once I'm at the first bonfire in The Great Hollow. If it doesn't prevent curse I'll hopefully have enough health to fight ghosts in New Londo. Where I will hopefully find the Cursebite Ring & remove curse.
    6. Hope that raising my Strength to 11 to equip a Spear to fight Basilisks was worth it.
    7. Farm for Twinkling Titanite at Ash Lake. (Maybe I'll need to defeat that Hydra there so that might be my first mini boss fight in this play through.) And maybe Tail Cut the Stone Dragon for a sword I won't be using anytime soon.
    8. After all of that I guess I debate whether I defeat the Undead Dragon in the Valley Of Drakes, Haval The Rock in Undeadburg, or both. (Both seems like a great idea for making victory laps around the areas!) Also remember to defeat Halberd Black Knight in Darkroot Basin as it's near a Bonfire I'll be using.

  9. The NX being a handheld is something I would've wanted before the Wii U happened. It's not that I wouldn't want it now. But I rather wait for Gaming on AR Glasses. But now I'm hoping that NX is a console. Because part of me is hoping The Elder Scrolls 6 could come to a Nintendo Console. That it could take place in Valenwood. And I think Link's Green Tunic would fit in as a Nintendo exclusive.

    I just saw this video for it and this has some good potential. Create an entire city and then go exploring all over the place. Thats pretty cool.

    Everything that was in that video was also in the beta version I got. Hopefully more people will play Big City Stories since it isn't tied to PS Home like Home Tycoon was.

    Purely my experience with Big City Stories so far.

    1. Plenty of NPCs & my avatar's head tend to clip through car roofs. My avatar's head clipping issue was fixed when I made it shorter in height.
    2. Its easier to run over zombies than shoot them. There's suppose to be ammo I can find, but I never found it. A Gas Station is a must for refueling cars during this activity. I should probably try this activity again with a topless car. I don't know if zombies can kill me but I doubt it. Also you can't run over people who aren't zombies.
    3. Some small objects I placed in the game clipped through the ground. I found this out sometime after trying to pull a Chris Christie at the bridge entrance.

    Big City Stories > Home Tycoon

    1. Naming The City & customizable signs. (Such as Here Lies Andy Peperoni & Cheese)
    2. Buildings can be upgraded.
    3. Driving isn't behind a paywall like it originally was in Home Tycoon. You can "borrow" any car you see driving around. And even make a little money as an Uber Driver. Though being an Uber Driver isn't as fun I'd hope. I was hoping for something more like Crazy Taxi.
    4. Collecting Cash (or Electricity) in the overhead map doesn't require workers. But it now feels a bit more or less tedious.
    5. Hospitals & Zoos (& maybe Nuclear Power Plants) are free.
    6. One of the new cars driving around, the Crusader, has easily became my favorite. (Its the one that looks like a Modern Day Muscle Car)
    7. Home Tycoon didn't have a Zombie Activity.
    8. The Water Tower isn't red so I can stop imagining Rico Rodriguez destroying it.

    Big City Stories < Home Tycoon

    1. Big City Stories lacks the floating suitcases that randomly gave cash or workers. I don't think they're coming back.
    2. Big City Stories lacks Helicopters. I don't know if they're coming back or being replaced.
    3. Big City Stories (Currently) lacks Activities & by extension actual story missions for the Fire Department & Hospital. I miss that loud mouth Fire Fighter already.
    4. Currently there are no Sports Stadiums. Home Tycoon had Football, Football (Soccer), & Olympic Stadiums. The Former 2 you had to actually buy. If they come back I expect them to be expansions.
    5. There are no "illegal" street races (they were part of a Home Tycoon expansion). But maybe they'll comeback. Part of me thinks the Garage Mechanic might replace the Vin Diesel parody character.
    6. I miss the bickering that use to happen between the pro-environment business & anti-environment business. That's probably gone because it was easier to side with the one that was better for the environment.
    7. Housing in Big City Stories doesn't generate money like it did in Home Tycoon.
    8. Big City Stories doesn't have a building that ties into Novus Prime.
    9. Big City Stories replaced Home Tycoon's Giant Black Panther with an Elephant when it comes to the Zoo.

    Beyond that I had 2 pics from Home Tycoon. One was with The Zoo's Big Black Panther. The other one was The "Nude" Beach. In that last pic you can barely see The Novus Prime Building near The Town Hall with Donut Shop behind it.

    You can find those pics in the 2nd link to this link once you scroll down to "Re: Epic Avatar Pix: 10 Pic Trophy" as I've posted about these pics before.

    Steam Greenlight doesn't seem so bad. At least most of those games are actual full games unlike Steam Early Access which is basically Steam's own version of kickstarter, except these games never have to be fully developed or even completed.

    Part of me probably shouldn't have an opinion on Steam Greenlight as all my examples of why Steam Greenlight is bad come from Jim Sterling.

    -

    Back to Pokémon Go I would probably get this in hopes I could find Meowth/Persian & Purrloin/Liepard if I wasn't waiting for Augmented Reality Glasses.

  12. I think this is just Nintendo slowly losing its ego it gained from over 30 years ago when it was declared The Savior Of Console Gaming. Sure Microsoft & Sony have their own problems when they think they can control the gaming industry. But Nintendo also had ego problems back when it was Snes vs. Genesis. IF Nintendo could outlive Microsoft & Sony in the console market part of me would expect certain games to become PC exclusive. This is partly because supposedly its harder to program of Nintendo consoles & its past with censoring games like Mortal Kombat.

    Everything that has happened from Japan or Nintendo "Saving" the console industry has resulted in Butterfly Effects. This is in part because consoles had made gaming convenient.

    The Sonic fan base existing is simply from Sega needing a mascot to compete against Mario. The ESRB's creation was fueled mostly by console games that non-gamers were outraged by. Sony wanting revenge on Nintendo over PlayStation. Sega's even faster fall out of the console market because PlayStation was a better competitor. Thus resulting in Sonic Fanatics need to let everyone know Sonic can defeat Mario. Microsoft being afraid that Sony would make an OS via PlayStation thus creating Xbox to compete. "Bro Gamers" becoming the average market that Sony & Microsoft would cater to. And Gamer Gate that has happened over the controversies existed before & after Bro Gamers.

    Part of these Butterfly Effects go right back into PC Gaming as Console Fanatics were declaring PC Gaming to be Dead. Then you had PC Gamers declaring Steam to be the savior of PC Gaming. Microsoft has now been making shifty moves to show it has been dedicated to PC Gaming. Steam Machine's Linux based existence for fear that Microsoft would force Steam out of the gaming industry.

    And finally the plausibly that the worst that might've come from all of this is Steam Greenlight & whatever butterfly effects that will have. Though I'm sure something like Steam Greenlight would've came into existence simply because Smart Phones were going to make gaming convenient anyway.

    ....

    Now if you excuse me I'm going look at artwork that sexually objectifies Female Khajiits, Argonians, etcetera. Why? Because nowadays from the neck up is way more important to me. Plus anything with a human like face would probably give me a migraine if I stare at it too long.

  13. Its a Free To Play game that is still in Beta. Its based off of Home Tycoon which you could only play on PS Home. I got my Beta Key on Friday, but didn't start playing until after 12 AM ET. Its still kind of buggy but I'm enjoying it about as much as I did Home Tycoon.

    It differs greatly from Home Tycoon however by how building effect an area instead of a whole city. Electricity as far as I can tell acts the same way as money. You collect it in a certain area & later spend it. Workers are still the most boring part that they brought back from Home Tycoon to BCS. Whether its better or worse Workers regenerate at certain buildings. So its best not to destroy the worker building you're given unless you intend on spending real money.

    Graphically it looks better than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (as in without mods). But then again SR2 & PSH look better than ES IV. Comparing BCS to just HT I'd say overall that BCS looks better. Well except for BCS avatar creation which looks kind of goofy.

    There are features coming to BCS according to options that aren't available yet. But I won't be typing about those until they're actually available.

    I might not spend any real money on BCS until its available to everyone as I rather not risk wasting my money.

  14. I remember being amazed by Jupiter's Great Red Spot. However I lost interest around my preteen years. If I couldn't afford to go to college to get more knowledge then how was I going to afford to go to Jupiter to get more Stupider?

    If I didn't play Saints Row 4, would playing Gat out of Hell make sense? Or does it matter if it's played out of order? :confused:

    Saints Row 4 didn't make sense & neither does Gat Out Of Hell. But if you play Gat Out Of Hell before Saints Row 4 expect a major spoiler. On the other hand if you don't play Gat Out Of Hell before Agents Of Mayhem you might spoil one of the endings to Gat Out Of Hell involving Brimstone. Although that was probably already spoiled by this year's E3.

    I would be barely looking forward to getting Gat Out Of Hell for free on PS4 if I didn't already buy it bundled with SR4. And I wouldn't have bought that if I didn't want SR4 on PS4 before I got it free for Xbox One. I don't know who to be more mad at. Microsoft for being desperate enough to give out better free games on Xbox One. Or Sony for being able to get away with free mediocre games on PS4.

  16. My experience with Windows 10 has gotten worse. Every time I try to fix something I just create a new problem.

    1. I logged into Xbox Live via the app & now I have to use my email password everyday in order to use my PC.
    2. I logged out of Xbox Live & now I can't easily access my previous old documents in WordPad like I did before.
    3. I uninstalled an adult game from my PC because the photos wouldn't stop showing up in the photo app that I originally liked & they still show up despite being removed.
    4. Microsoft Edge guarantees that once I can't use Internet Explorer that I'll probably switch to Firefox & other web browsers.

    I'm starting to really hate Windows 10.

  17. It doesn't feel like a Resident Evil game. But its way better than Resident Evil 4. I think the only reason to why I played the demo was because I've permanently missed out on the PT hype.

    My dislikes for it however are

    1. It basically has the same ending that can happen in different rooms.
    2. You can't follow the other guy.
    3. Dummy Finger has no purpose.
    4. the idea of Ghosts being a part Resident Evil.
    Spoiler

    Beyond that I think you're playing as 2 different guys in the beginning hour as I doubt the cameraman from the video survived long enough to end up back on the first floor.
