    I don't go bat shit insane using my controllers, and I had this DS4 for a year. It's just a natural problem with rubber materials used for the thumb-sticks; it's an inevitability. Luckily, the controller still functions spot on with no signs of dying out.

    Uuuuh, everytime I'm trying to explore in Shadow of Mordor, I keep running into multiple captains of which I keep killing, keep coming back to life so apparently I have to finish them by executing them because you know, stabbing them multiple times in the lungs and slitting their throats apparently doesn't cause death. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Grrr! So I can't seem to beat this one arching quest (the first one). Taking arrows to the knees are devastating!

    PS now. What a joke.

    I'm gonna rent a game for a couple of hours? They think you're gonna dump your cash to play a game for a few hours, when you could probably buy it for that price and play it on a PS3? I think not. Most of what I saw I already have, so no bueno. Here's hoping that October has something on DLC or in the stores that I can fap to. Destiny is turning out to NOT be that badness I wanted. They better pick it up fast and hard and SOON.

    It's still in beta, right? Hope it doesn't stay that way perpetually, like Home.

    It might be a pipedream getting a substantial number of pubs on board, but I'd still very much like a true digital rental service. This PS Plus, Games with Gold, EA Access "mystery box" nonsense is for the birds.

    Shadow of Mordor

    This game is a little crazy. This one mission involves stealth kills which is my favorite, but then this one stealth kill didn't die. It turned out to be a captain of which I killed, and then I spotted another captain of which I got owned so I had to run, but then I ran into another captain of which I killed. Theeeen I ran into another captain of whom I slew. This one guard, I head-shotted from a distance and it turned out to be a captain.

    This one captain though, aaaargh, I almost had him but I decided to play it safe and run away. I SHOULDN'T HAVE!! When I came back, he turned out to be a combat master so he could break my attack strings and damage me. I tried to head-shot him but the arrow just bounced off his head (invulnerability).

    PS: I'm going back!! I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE! YOU WILL OBEYY!!!

    they already spent the money when they bought gaikai. it would be financial suicide if they didn't utilize cloud gaming at all.

    but they do need to find a better price point. the idea of moving away from subscriptions was a bad one.

    paying for a few hours is shitty. it looks bad. it scares away consumers. especially at the price point they are asking.

    but looking at it, i think this is to scare many people off because they are not fully ramped everywhere. this service is going to suck for a lot of people. maybe in 1-2 years it will be much better.

    so have it out there, let it make nickels and dimes, and when infrastructure is better, then really revamp it.

    but its a worthwhile venture. having that infrastructure setup will make them much more future proof. imagine never buying a system and playing games through their TVs or tablets. or everytime they need to improve tech, they just do it on their side and you have better games and graphics without the consumer investing in hardware. you can improve your install rates by not having people choose between consoles... instead you just let them log on via their tv, purchase the game, and start playing immediately.

    that shit is pretty far off, but for anything involving cloud based anything, getting it started is the most difficult thing to do.

    Before going back in to get a round 2 on some of those Uruk captains, find a snitch (green diamond on the map) and make him tell you what the captain's particular weaknesses are. If he's a combat master, you probably won't be able to damage him with anything but finishers or poison.
  • Tekno VirusTekno Virus small man big strength Joined: Posts: 8,778
    He's only weakness is stealth kills which takes about a third of his health, but he also has regeneration so if I wait too long he'll heal.

    I think I have to ninja-Spiderman him as in: get in a brawl with him, defeat everyone until he's alone, run up one of the structures until he let guard drop, jump-knife his ass->run and hide->jump-knife his ass, such and so forth.

    OR

    Maybe I can lure him nearby a fire, blow the fire, ninja his ass then maayybeeee he'll start "fearing" meaning he'll lose his invulnerabilities then brrriiing oooonnnn the smmaackdoowwwwnnn!!

    ELdrag the Poet is his name!! GRAAAA

    I got him down to 50% health today. I sought to catch him in the middle of a skirmish with one of his rivals, but alas! I did not have a good vantage point to stealth kill him. He finished his foes wounded and I thought I could sneak up on him and back stab him but he somehow saw me hiding behind a post!!

    I did for 62 hits straight. Does no damage. I'm gonna lie in wait when he fights other Uruks while his health is depleted, I'll backstab him. If I can get him down to 25%, then maybe he'll start fearing and losing his invulnerability.

    I ran into my first god Uruk today with combat master + immunity to arrows. Ended up having to ninja-kill tons of dudes around him until he got spooked.

    Killing his underlings does something? I killed everyone using melee to no avail.

    ...dammit, the very existence of that game is making me want to go ahead and get one of these new-gen systems earlier than I originally intended. Sure, Mordor will also be on the old-gen systems, but fuck that.

    One small detail that already had me sold was the "Dominate" power. Any ability that is akin to a vampire "compulsion" deal....oh yes that's delicious to me. And of course beyond that----Orcs. You can't go wrong when those guys are included in a game, folks.

    Nostalgia from the previous generation--> my first Skyrim character...a badass Orc vampire. Yeah. That's how I roll.

    Anyway, I was in Gamestop earlier today, thinking about making that purchase... I'm not sure I can resist this temptation over the rest of the weekend....

    He eventually became terrified after I killed like the 20th dude next to him. I assume that these combat master uruks will become much easier when I gain the ability to turn their bodyguards against them.

    Dude I killed everyone except him, then I did the 62 hit combo.

    I got me a ps3 problem:

    So I was fixing up my buddy's ps3 (mgs4 us bundle version) and it ylod. I fixed the ylod no problem but the darn thing doesn't even read discs now.

    He told me he did a system restore so the system is clean, but it still doesn't read discs. What could I do that does not involve buying a new ps3?

    I killed him... in a very anti-climatic manner. I saw him from afar dueling another captain and made short works of him. "Rats" I thought to myself and he actually saw me, "Double rats". So I just climbed atop of a tall structure and ninja killed him... except that this time it took all his life. Farewell, my greatest Uruk rival.

    I just unlocked death threats which gives you a chance to get Epic Runes and I must say, these are pretty useful.

    I has two copies of Nier, cause why not?
    Both game copies are in the 'very/really good' to 'mint/like new' condition range, too.

    @Million‌
    IIRC, you picked up Deception IV, right?
    How's that working out for you?

    I might be picking that game up later this month.

    Oh yeah, I got Deception IV a few months ago....on Vita. I was surprised to find out that it's also on PS3. It's good, but I haven't played it for a while due to the Soul Sacrifice Delta addiction. This game D4 is leaning more towards trap combos being the intended gameplay....and I love it. A good combo is awesome and satisfying when the results go off exactly according to plan. The difficulty goes up quickly though, as you have to deal with several characters at once, with all of them trying to kill you of course....that becomes a tough situation when some of them have guns, and some are fast, agile characters.

    Also, I would've preferred this game have some character customization. You're stuck having to play this one female character.... I don't *always* have a problem with that (e.g.--Bayonetta was one of my favorite games of all time), but I do prefer having a choice in the design of the main character, from clothes to gender, skin color, etc. Of course, a major reason for this might be the fact that it involves a lot of hand-drawn character art that includes the main character.

    I'm pretty excited about the PS TV. Lots of Vita/PSP games I want to play, but don't really want to play it on a handheld.

    Have they said anything on how the video output will look like? Is it just stretched onto the big screen?

    How long is that deal going on for? Planning to buy a Wii-U within a week or two's time. If the price stays like that for an extra 2 weeks, I'd be straight.

    need to get several air-cans and 99% isopropyl alcohol. Might post pics of the grimy residue; don't barf tho....

    Get his homies on your side before you go at him again. I'm pretty sure Captain strengths don't apply to other Uriks...just power level.

    I was able to assassinate him. This time though for some reason, did not take 30% of his life, it killed him instantly. It could be that when you're weapon is reforged, it becomes more powerful. Speaking of powerful, there's an ability that doubles your damage if your weapon glows, that (plus critical from timing square with each hit) just about kills anything faster than any execution or fancy moves.
