I'm fully on board, but was since the alpha so haven't had as much new to say.

I think that I will go Warlock first with the retail release. There was a moment during the moon mission that pretty much cemented it. When I opened the doors to the temple and got rushed by all the melee enemies I did a slow glide jump backwards and killed them all from the air as I hovered away (I really should have saved it as a clip, but I wasn't thinking). Just something that you can't do with the Hunter's double jump, though the Titan sort of has a similar jump skill. Granted it would have probably made me a sitting duck in PvP but in PvE it was pretty awesome.

Glide jump away was the only way I was able to solo that encounter. That was fierce.

I think they need to balance the sniper rifle as they are completely OP in the campaign.  In that same mission I just stood back and headshot the wizards. 3 or 4 hits and it was done.

6  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Phones must now be unlocked? on: July 28, 2014, 12:23:14 PM
I saw an article last week (I cannot remember where and my google fu is failing me) that stated some court ruled that carriers will no longer be allowed to dictate which phones can and can't be used on their networks.

Anyone see this? And does it mean that we can now use any phone on any network?

I'd like your guys' analysis on this as my Droid 4 is sloooowllly losing the battle with time and I'd like to get whichever phone I think is the best one.

Questions about versions.

Even though I've had limited time with it, I'm pretty sure I'm all the way in.  Are there plans for a digital guardian edtion (the one with the expansion apss) being available for the XB1?

Every time I select it says it's only available for the PS3...or at a minimum...not availble for the xb1.   ninja

The bigger issue is that the YQ feels she needs to read it AND that he needs to read it.

Obviously, YK is not getting the job done.

You can watch the respawns, giant transports warp in and the troops drop out, it's quite frequently.

Thanks for the details.  As for this point...I've seen the ships...but these guys did not drop out of the ships...they just reappeared.

So for the 2nd time in two play sessions, I got bounced from the mission due to a network error...hope this is beta shennanigans.

You're fire team was returned to orbit due to a network error.

And Ike and I could not get the chat to work.  It would only work if both of us had the chat window snapped open.  Anyone else experience either of these issues?

Also, what, generally is the respawn time for random enemies?  I cleared out an old ship that had a couple captains and some dregs. I walked around it to explore and before I left the side I just cleared, i was getting shot int he back by the same enemies.

Same thing happened with a captain and a dreg on another part of the mission. I killed them, went down a tunnel. Came back around to the opening of the cave and bang, they were there again.

I have only begun eating yogurt within the last year.  For whatever reason I can't get enough of it.

Vanilla with fresh fruit or granola is now my idea of a perfect breakfast or snack.

Sadly, yogurt sometimes gives me a bit of heart burn due to the acidity. Also, granola is UBER caloric, so I'm looking for fancy ways to make the fancy snack fancier but sans fatty patty ruth 'n bratty granola.

One more question:

Now that I've completed the first mission. What if I play with a friend who hasn't. Do i need to be on his fire team to do his version of the mission? or can he be on mine and I go with him?

18  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: July 24, 2014, 12:53:53 PM
Ok. I've never MMO'd before so I have questions. I played about 90 minutes last night.

1. Like Monkey Finger asked: Are the people I see all over the place during the first mission actually running their own instance of what I'm doing? I seem to be able to kill enemies they are fighting and likewise, but when I fought the main baddie of the mission I was solo (which I prefered as I had no friends online at the time).

2. The interface is quite obtuse.  I don't understand half the stuff I'm seeing when I talk to vendors or what the card that pops up in the corner at the end of the first mission.  Oh and I can apparently spawn a vehicle almost whenever I want?

3. How does one actually logout of this game? I select log out and am I supposed to select change character or profile?

4. I have only done the first mission and I selected the hard difficulty because I'm pretty good at FPS.  It didn't seem to net me any benefits for doing so other than making it more challenging. Will the full game have additional bonuses for trying harder things at a lower level?

5. Where is a n00b supposed to go to figure out what all the mechanics of this game are? I guess glimmer is money and I assumed from my experience with mass effect that breaking down old components nets me $$$, but where will this stuff actually be explained? For example: can I unlock any power at any time? What do the circles part-way around the powers mean? I didn't collect any orbs apparently. What are orbs?

6.  Am I getting xp for killing everything?  I explored a lot and killed a bunch of the fallen but couldn't tell if it was impacting my rank up

7. At one point I entered a room on the first mission and there was a gaggle of '??' level monsters and they ripped me apart in about 2 seconds.  How did that happen? Did I do something wrong?

8. Where does one go for PVP?  And does it put like ranked people against each other or will I be facing level 8 baddies from the get go.

9. May be too soon, but where is the grand epicness of the world?  Seemed like the safe city was sparsely populated and the first mission area was likewise.

10. Biggest frustration point I found was that if I have ammo for a special weapon, that ammo doesn't convert to another special when I switch it. In fact, if you change specials ALL OF THE SPECIAL AMMO DISAPPEARS altogether.  What's up with that?


Mixed first experience, but I definitely want to check it out more.
19  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Best Star Wars movie poll on: July 23, 2014, 03:48:22 PM
Revenge of the Sith was the only one of the new movies that had any substance to it.

I think after I saw it, I thought it was the best of the franchise..but upon seeing again (if I did, I feel like I did) I didn't like it that much.  Not sure what I feel now as it has been so long since I've seen any of them. 

I'm afraid at this stage I won't find any of them that great.

I'm sure it's not a coincidence that our cable service is no longer working after they screw with it, and I also want to know how I'm supposed to mow the lawn with 30+ feet of cable just laying across it.  crazy people. 

It's probably a temporary run until they get a crew out to channel it.  If it's not taken care of in 5-7 business days, call and complain.

I've had Comcast cable and internet service for going on 17 years now, and can count the number of issues on one hand.  Even when one does arise, they've been pretty quick to get it fixed, and their people have all be quite nice (even if they don't seem like the sharpest knives in the drawer). 

Guess I should just consider myself lucky.

This is how i feel about Time Warner. Have been rock solid and have had good customer service.  Still they keep raising my bill every year so it's not like I don't have something to complain about...

Yes. People being overly nice and trying to help customers to their fullest ability is just inexcusable.  Sounds like we have some Christianphobia going on here.

Listened to a couple of more songs and honestly I don't know how, beyond the initial chuckle factor or 'ooh he's clever' how anyone listen's to any song of his more than once.

He's obviously talented, but...

I owned one of his albums when I was a kid...Even Worse is apparently is what it was called and I think I listened to the whole thing twice. Other than Melanie and Twister the whole thing was pretty annoying.

I havenít but one of my friends loves it.  If you want the original, mostly unaltered XCom experience, thatís what you will get.  Just donít expect a lot of modern conventions or a highly polished visual style.  Things are functional, beyond that is sounds like all the focus has been on gameplay.

Is the game unpossible hard?
