ztpayne7 commented on Guide: What Are the Best Perks to Take in Fall...:

Great guide! Are you guys going to be posting a bobble head guide? That's one of the few spoilers I'm okay with seeing. Kind of like how I didn't mind knowing where the places of power were and what the skills did, but I didn't look up anything else with the witcher.



ztpayne7 commented on Guide: Fallout 4 Hints and Tips for Beginners ...:

@ShogunRok yeah and the skills along with their bobble heads countered some of it. And also perks were level based and not special based. Although I have to say I like the new system better. Everything would work out perfect for me if it wasn't for this one perk!

But thanks for all of your coverage. I'm enjoying it.



ztpayne7 commented on Guide: Fallout 4 Hints and Tips for Beginners ...:

You actually were able to put points into your special in the last game. It was a perk called something like intense training.

I had my special all figured out until I heard about the local leader perk. I had never utilized luck in any of my play throughs and I had wanted to give it a shot, but now I may need to put some into charisma instead. I usually lone wolf these games so I was gonna only do 3 in it, but now I might have to move some things around. 3 points is a lot to pump into one for one perk.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Fallout 4 (PS4):

@ShogunRok Oh, one more question. I don't know if you have experience with it, but does the Local Leader perk under the charisma tree have a big effect on settlements? It says that it allows you to make supply lines and stores, which seems like a pretty big feature to hide behind a perk. I wasn't planning on putting that much into Charisma this time around, but I'm very interested in the settlement idea.

Thanks for all of your hard work! Look forward to playing tomorrow night!



ztpayne7 commented on Fallout 4's Launch Trailer Will Make Your Hype...:

@rjejr It's not a team FPS per se - the only teamwork is through AI companions. I don't believe there is any multiplayer. But overall, it is a lot of those things. Fallout 3 tried to do a lot of different things at once and succeeded in pulling a bunch of them off. They look into a lot of the small details and it is so good. This is coming from someone who much prefers the main line Elder Scrolls series, but still believes Fallout is great.

@topic Super exciting. Can't wait to play. I like how they used some old footage from other trailers, but had the female counterpart instead.



ztpayne7 commented on Most of Rock Band 4's Legacy DLC Delayed in Eu...:

This is obviously just here say because my only source is that I read it on a forum somewhere - but I read a lot of people saying scee isn't particularly easy to work with when it comes to the music genre as a whole.



ztpayne7 commented on Fallout 4's PS4 Trophies Will Keep You Occupied:

I don't personally want to look at the list. But the one thing I'd like to know is if there are trophies for being at certain levels and at certain karmas (fallout 3 did this three times - be neutral, good and evil at like level 8, etc.) they were annoying and the reason I'll never get that plat.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Assassin's Creed Syndicate (PS4):

@Gamer83 Brotherhood is also great, in my opinion. I feel like it's about up there with 2.

I'm also a huge fan of unity, but this comes from someone who didn't have any glitches. It was one of my favorites in the series. I liked some of the meaningful changes they made to the gameplay.

Oh, the one last thing that I always had a problem with regarding AC4 - I really like the game, but did anyone else feel that Edward was a little too good at being an assassin with only raw talent and no training? Like he knew how to use the hidden blades already...

On topic - I will definitely play this game, but for the price, I will wait it out. Fallout 4 is more important to me.



ztpayne7 commented on The End of the World Awaits in Life Is Strange...:

Just a question for someone who has only played the demo. My wife loves these and we'll probably get this now that all the episodes are out (telltale has ruined episodic gaming in our house). Would you say there's a feeling of more or less choice in this game? And does it matter?

The demo was cool so we'll be looking forward to this one.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Super Meat Boy (PS4):

My wife died against the first boss probably 200 times in a row before discovering that she wasn't using the run button. haha it was such a great moment when that look of shock hit her as she accidentally crazed the trigger run. We got it all on video too since we were capturing for youtube. haha I hope there are more great moments like that.



ztpayne7 commented on Assassin's Creed Syndicate PS4 Trailer Shows S...:

@Jaz007 apart from the no multiplayer, is it a LOT different than unity? I haven't been following it. I'm sure the grappling hook won't be available til later?

Also, even though I loved unity, I learned my lesson. Never buy an ac game until months after it comes out.



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Rock Band 4 (PS4):

@Anchorsam_9 no problem! I'm pretty diehard into rock band so I try to follow it closely. Another little known fact is that you can update the firmware on the guitar and the drums which is kind of interesting.

I'm available if anyone has any questions



ztpayne7 commented on Review: Rock Band 4 (PS4):

I feel like I have some points I want to add if that's okay?

1. Online multiplayer will not be coming later this year. There's a big December update but it has been confirmed to not be coming then.

2. Character creator is a little sparse, especially at the beginning. I couldn't even make a character that had the same hair as me from the beginning, but it opens up a bit when you make some cash.

3. Play a show mode is an entertaining variation of quick play - basically it puts the song voting feature into a party setting. We played like this for 2 hours and it was fun and had us playing some songs we may not have chosen.

4. There are a lot of small but great tweaks. Setting drums into overdrive isn't a matter of flailing anymore - it charts a fill for you based on style and difficulty. I like that. Freestyle vocals give the singer a chance to improv a little - it's not perfect but it's a nice addition. While I'm sure there's more, I'll end with one last tweak that is amazing - if your instrument doesn't play for a while, it will give you a resting countdown timer - practically a god send when you're sight reading songs. I had a dream theater song where I didn't sing for over 2 minutes and I would've had to stare at the screen waiting over the old system.
