  2. I always look at exploring as a role play kind of experience, and the hunt for some nice screenshots. To this end EDdiscovery will rename screenshots on the system. you never know when the next system will have a moon which is in rings, a moon with a fantastic mountain or deep canyon or a satellite with a really short orbital period, or perhaps a supergiant with an orbiting M class star which will give you that fantastic screenshot.
  3. Here are a couple of snaps from my flyby the moon and the Gas giant...

  5. Hi, Danster I was going to head out there soon but thought it might be useful to keep track of the bodies that had been claimed. Perhaps we can get the first post modified? Anyway I hope you don't mind me doing this -if so let me know and I will edit the post. I hope I got the naming convention correct - I was working from the picture only.

  6. Dood, I don't think the in game super sampling works particularly well (or not at all with HMD). I was initially disappointed with the graphical quality. If you are using your rift use the oculus debug tool to run super sampling (pixel density greater than 1.0 Results may vary depending on your overhead available, I use 1.6 with a seriously powerful graphics card so experiment. There are some reports that lowering in game super sampling to less than 1.0 and increasing the pixel density in the oculus debug tool can return a sharper image with less overhead but I never saw it. Also remember that planet surface is generally more graphically intensive than space incase you set your options to high and get a bad case of motion sickness when you land on a surface.

  8. I am really enjoying this. Currently playing with auto gears and driving line on and no other assets on the pad. Had a blast in the Clio cup. I couldn't get on with the karts so just abandoned them. My race at brands hatch I went from 3rd to 1st and then back to 3rd due to an ill timed pit stop that saw me come out in traffic. I love that you get a practice session and a qualifying session - gives time to get used to the cars. Not had any bugs per se but had the following couple of problems: Disappearing hud - seriously annoying, however I bound the cycle hud command to the ps4 touchpad and this means I can get it back, and I can bring up telemetry to watch brake and tyre temps! Pitting. I have been caught out by pitting at the same time as my teammate (and you don't get any warning, unless they are in the pit box) The annoying part of this is that you don't que at the pit box you keep driving through. It would be nice if you got some sort of warning that your teammate was going in on the same lap so this could be avoided as right now it's like a drive through penalty Otherwise enjoying it so far and the clios have driven fine on the pad and I have enjoyed getting to grips with the caterams. Hopefully the fun will continue with the other cars.

    Redemption Ark is probably my favourite of the series but I enjoyed The Prefect for the timing of its setting. I have never really enjoyed Absolution Gap but may try reading it for a third time and see if I can get it. Galactic North was a fantastic set of stories to read after reading the Revelation Space arc; but I don't know if I would want to read it before I had read through that arc as it could kill a bit of the mystique of the series.

    Dark Souls II - Release: March 2014

    I haven't touched it in over a week. Can't be bothered with a new build or NG+. While I enjoyed it working through it, I currently have no desire to replay it, which is telling and a shame. I may still buy the pc release as it might run at a consistent frame rate and not look like shit.

    Dark Souls II - Release: March 2014

    I am just about done, and it has been fantastic but it has a few minor problems, which are probably a result of familiarity with the series (and technically there are mechanisms to address this) The rate that items drop is ridiculous and presumably this is to counter the fact it is not possible to grind with the despawning enemies. I miss the grind and I am not a fan of the bonfires warping me everywhere. Also the rate at which souls are dished out is very high and with bonfires everywhere it is too easy to keep them, resulting in reaching SL100 very easily and that seems overpowered. I guess I should use the bonfire thing, but I find myself rushing through so no one spoils anything for me. That said, I am looking forward to NG+ and/or a different build. And really looking forward to the PC build, which will hopefully address some of the graphical shortcomings. I still have plenty to explore as I have only managed about 50% of the achievements. So minor niggles aside, I would say this is a great addition to the series and hope From get some well deserved financial success of the back of this release.

    Was this not the same as dark souls? A successful invasion or jolly co-op would result in a restocking of spells and estus.

    I think you are missing the point that each person has different builds and strengths. I found the Pursuer to be incredibly tought but everything else has been pretty straight forward. Lost sinner in particular was a cakewalk. That said the smelting dragon(???) is giving me a few headaches last night, so much so I turned the game off in a huff, after my sixth death. My main complaint was the lack of damage so time to experiment a bit.
