Entertainment Industry and Physical Media

Ahhh, there you have it!  You're exactly the kind of consumer the Entertainment industry is trying to phase out - those that believe they should 'own' games, movies, etc.  I realize nobody ever really reads EULA's, but if you did you'd notice that more and more you (the consumer) is being ...

Terraria

[QUOTE=DaHeckIzDat]I've given some serious thought to this game, but in the end couldn't figure out why somebody would choose it over Minecraft. I'm sure there are parts to it I'm not seeing, but on the surface it just looks like 2D Minecraft. [/QUOTE]<br /><br />Unfortunately I can't compare/contra...

Remembering the Xbox

I did find two things that the Xbox did out of the box to be head and shoulders above other consoles at the time; it supported 4 controllers (the PS2, its main competition, only supported 2 natively) and it saved game files directly to a hard drive.  In fact, the hard drive alone made it my pre...

Terraria

The recent talk about Minecraft convinced me to go back and give Terraria another try (on the PC via Steam).  I still find the interface fairly awkward, but it's more usable than it was when I first purchased the game and I've been able to make decent progress (I think).  I have a harder t...

2015/1/7: Playstation 4: Minecraft, NBA 2K15

[QUOTE=Splash]<br />While I disagree with that, I do have one complaint with Terraria: the enemies are relentless. I try to open a chest or chop shadewood, no can do, you have to fight wave after wave after wave of enemies until you eventually die. It wouldn't be too bad if there was an end to them,...

2015/1/7: Playstation 4: Minecraft, NBA 2K15

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who is a little tired of how so many games now incorporate (or in same cases shoehorn in) 'crafting'.  Without a manual or list of what can be combined to make what, I find it incredibly tedious to try to figure out what I can make and how.  I get that ...

[QUOTE=ptdebate]@Sudz I understand where you're coming from about the server issues--I experienced the same thing when I got the game. I think we could continue debating this for an eternity, so I'm going to respectfully bow out.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Good enough, thanks for discussing the issue! ...

2014/9/19: Playstation 3: Diablo III

[QUOTE=ptdebate]Unfortunately, this is no "engineering mistake" on Blizzard's part--save-editing is and has always been very common in online RPGs where the user's save data is stored locally (Diablo II, Phantasy Star Online, Dark Souls).[/QUOTE]<br /><br />If they are having an issue with console p...

2014/9/19: Playstation 3: Diablo III

[QUOTE=ptdebate]Whoops! Accidentally hit the "reply" button. Anyway, the reason there's so much cheating in multiplayer on the console versions is that people can take their save files offline (i.e., they're stored locally and not on a server somewhere). The reason a Diablo game would need special p...

2014/9/19: Playstation 3: Diablo III

[QUOTE=ptdebate] First of all, any of us on the forum could have told you that the always-online requirement was here to stay. Secondly, there's a great reason for this requirement--namely, to prevent hacking and save editing, both of which are so rampant on the console versions as to make online pl...
