Title: Watch Me Play Video Games!
Post by: Nubbins on November 20, 2014, 09:26:33 PM
This is apparently the new trendy thing to do. Watch people play video games.

I'm on Twitch currently playing Shadow of Mordor.

You can tune in here: http://www.twitch.tv/katzenjammer06

I'll try to let you guys know when I'm online... Not that anyone cares, but whatever.

Hmm... Haven't figured out chat yet. I have my mic on so we could talk if we can get that working.

I did the typing chat. I don't know where that would show up for you, but it was to the right of the screen for me.

Watching you now! I'm convinced not to get Shadow of Mordor.

Switching to Halo... To drink for all these combos and buttons right now.

Last I heard, PS4 was dominating the market. I may get one eventually, but I was really soured on Sony after my PS3. Their online network sucked and I actually prefer paying for Xbox Live. Anyway, when this generation came out, I already had a live membership, plus I love using Kinect to voice surf through Netflix, so I went with the Xbox One. I do think the PS4 looks pretty sexy though.

Also I am road tripping back to ATL with Larry today to see her folks. I can't get her out of bed b/c she is literally the world's worst morning person. So I (packed and ready to go) am going to play some Mordor. Broadcasting in a few minutes. Hopefully the noise will rouse the Larry so we can get on the road.

Larry's aversion to the early morning is incredible. We won't leave for Atlanta until noon, I can almost guarantee it.

Switching to Forza 5... Because I'm not going to do enough driving today already.

Xbox has caught up these last six months because Xbox cut prices and has more games. Some of PS4's renditions may be prettier, but there aren't enough.

But I'd like a cheap PS4 in a few years, that fits into my front jeans pocket and runs on the souls of Thetans.

I love that your girlfriend is named Larry.

He name is actually Laura. She always calls me Matty, which admittedly a lot of other people do as well. One day, I just slipped and called her Larry in response because there's no real way to shorten the name Laura. I thought it was hilarious. Her not so much, but the name has stuck to the point that even my mom slips up now and then, calling her Larry. It's fantastic and I love it that she doesn't make a big deal out of me calling her Larry.

Go for a Mage... much cooler than other classes, plus the spell animations look great. Also, choose Rift Mage later in the game - cooler spells and it fits in better with the storyline.

Anybody here owns a Wii U?

I've heard a lot of good things over these last few months. Now that quite a few fantastic Nintendo 1st party games have been released, most of which have been received as some of the best games made these last few years, this is supposedly the year to get one - with a new Star Fox and Zelda on the horizon, and maybe a new Metroid game.

I got one a few months ago. I like it, but the whole controller situation confuses me every time I use it. The controller with the screen on it is big and clunky, so you need to have space for it, but otherwise I really like the system.

It is everything other consoles are not. It's small, pretty simple and doesn't try to be something it's not. Games are great with a really good selection of NES and SNES games in the online store. That's honestly what sold me... I wanted to play F-Zero again. :)

It's the only system Larry will actually sit down and play with me. She even asks to play sometimes. So Nintendo definitely has something figured out that other game makers do not. Their games are appealing to a much wider audience.

And I bitch about the screen controller only because of its size, but actually it is really nice. It means I can turn on the Wii and play games while Laura watches Catfish or Oprah.

Quoting myself from our fallout thread:

Quote
On Saturday, my buddy won a TIVA, DC's most prestigious video award. I was at the event and texted him to let him know and asked him why he wasn't there. He texted back, "I'm playing Fallout 4."

I keep hearing this and I don't get it. I have thousands of rolls of duct tape and, of course, every glue-sniffing raider outpost has wonderglue hidden everywhere.

And, yes, being able to scrap everything in sight was an awesome discovery.

What frustrates me is that I can't see who's assigned to what task in my now very large network of settlements. Is there a way to do that?

Fusion cores are, stupidly, also everywhere...but not where you think they are. I've found three in their sockets powering away...for nobody. I've found dozens in trash cans and random buckets.

It's across platforms. I read a review that told me to look for fusion cores in stupid places. (Oh, and you can steal them from the backs of Brotherhood soldiers, if your stealth is up. So that's basically an inexhaustible resource.)

Fallout 4 is actually a bit of a hot mess. See our discussions in the Fallout thread.
