    Is it as bad as FFXIII's tutorial?

    I'll get to it but I'm having fun with Infamous. I've forgotten how much those games are.

    And, it seems, they've made them even more fun! The new powers are a hoot, I'm loving the neon stuff!

    If you like Alien, grab isolation, absolutely fantastic so far. Five Nights at Freddy's has nothing on this.

    I like the changes thus far. I've got most things already, but it looks like it should be more efficient for any new players out there.

    Pre-ordered my digital deluxe copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PS3) for next week's release.

    Puts me close to the Sony promo of spend 100 and get 15 back.

    In Tapped Out, they added more land to purchase, so I did because I was running low on land and it only cost around $10MM to get it all.

    I think this came with the Clash of Castles (or whatever it was called) update.

    Okay. I didn't try to buy any land then, the idea only occurred to me to even try this time because of the pure MB size of this update.

    So I just signed up for EA Origin to link TSTO to 2 devices, and now neither device will connect to the server. Awesome. I just made level 45, too.

    Have you tried doing a hard boot on your phone? I lost my first Springfield due to app failure almost two years ago. That was... frustrating.

    No luck on restarting the primary device. Should that help? The message is received on 2 devices (the previous iPod Touch and a new Motorola phone). I've never so much as seen Springfield on the phone, I tried signing in to Origin and now it automatically tries and fails to load. It makes me think the issue is in the cloud.

    If I lose the file, it's probably a game retirement. At level 45, I've seen most of the questlines and character actions. The game is repetitive enough without starting from scratch.

    I've had login issues before, but they've always resolved and kept my file after a day or two.

    Fingers crossed then. I was wondering if the next game update would have a restoring side-effect. We'll see.

    Pretty excited to dig into Borderlands The Pre-Sequel tonight. Only downside to Tuesday releases is that I have to work!

    If you're playing and need co-op players both the wife and I will be playing (PS3).

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    Got a couple hours in on Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. It's definitely Borderlands 2+.

    It was made by 2K Australia, so it's heavy on homage to that country.

    I like the character choices this round. I chose Wilhelm. Yes, the bad guy mech you kill in B2. He's still mostly human in this game, since it's before the events of B2.

    Those annoying flying repair bots he used in B2 are his special ability. He summons 1 heal and 1 attack bot at the same time during battle. It has been super useful so far.

    Most of the B2 main cast are back in some form as NPC as well, including my favorite Moxxie! I just wish Tiny Tina was in.

    The new game mechanics are low gravity and an oxygen meter. Thankfully the oxygen meter rarely interferes with game play, as there is plenty of ways to refill. The enemies must also deal with oxygen. So breaking their air mask causes them extra dmg.

    Low gravity means everyone jumps higher, floats, or has jet packs. Meaning battles tend to be chaotic as you try to hit constantly moving targets.

    Moonstone replace eridium as special currency.

    There are several bonuses for having the previous games saves on your ps3.

    There are new effects and bonuses on items based on things like if you are in a vacuum or atmosphere, or adding to your oxygen meter and it's depletion rate.

    Looking forward to Sunset Overdrive (XBOX1 ) next Tuesday. Silly premise (tainted energy drinks = mutants), but open world, fast paced mayhem.

    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    I've totally slacked on Simpsons and Family Guy now that the fall video games are here.

    Picked up OOTP 15 on sale. Immediately traded away the Twins farm to fix the major league team. I may have to release Mauer. His contract is an albatross, despite hitting .321 this season.

    I did add Michael Wacha, Nelson Cruz, Josh Harrison, Edinson Volquez, and Lorenzo Cain to the club though.

    Some what under the radar, Costume Quest 2 released yesterday. Enjoyed the first one a few years ago.
