Was under leveled for Queen's Wrath. Luckily M4cker brought his game face and pretty much carried us teh whole way through. My Queen's armor is oh so hawt.  Esepecially the way the light catchs the insignia   Fabulous

What an absolutely brutal opening to a game. Wow.

Question: I didn't get very far as Destiny's siren song lured me away, but the interface is very overwhelming and I felt like I really needed a manual.  Should I go directly after the first orc captain to progress the tutorial? My typical method is to do everything but what I'm directed to do until last.

Thanks for the advice.

Oh and the graphics are pretty terrible. Everything else, voiceover, movement, menus, etc seem top notch.  GB just dropped a 5/5 on it.

Yeah. Can't tell the difference.

Whatever. I'm no graphics whore.

So stoked for this, and perplexed how ATB cannot tell the difference between 60 and 30 FPS.   I get not being able to tell resolution differences all that much, but I find FPS differences to be quiet jarring actually

If someone could say link me to a vid showing the same game at different FRs, perhaps I would get an idea?

As for you ATB, that you claim not to be able to tell the difference between 60 fps and 30 fps tells me that you haven't actually played many 60 fps games. The difference is huge, though I have no problem playing games at 30 fps personally. For an example of of what kind of difference it makes, just look at The Last of Us. Most people found the PS4 version to be easier than the PS3 version (me included), and that's because of only two things: The improved controller and the improved framerate. It's not just a visual thing. A higher framerate also improves control latency, which means you can react quicker and make finer, more precise adjustments to your aim.

You tell me: I have recently played destiny, BF4 on XB1, Gears of War 3, COD Ghosts, Tombraider reboot whatever it's called, Dishonored, Guacamelee STCE,  Kinect Sports Rivals.

Forza 5 is 1080p/60fps, did you try that?

Don't care for driving games...

Those modes can be so frustrating with no communication.

I don't find the lack of communication frustrating.  I find the the lack of map rotation and the OP nature of the hunter to be the biggest issues.

This is just a complaint about not having much SP content so you can just hop over this post if you want to talk more about loot drops.

I love the combat in this game, I love the graphics, I enjoy the little bit of story but I really don't want to farm weapons, rep, light, etc. I find that the death animations and violence are unrealistic enough I don't mind playing with my kids watching (6 and Cool unlike something like Wolfenstein which looks like it has great combat but I could not play around kids. I even like playing occasionally with people but I really wish there was a longer, better single player game.

I keep reading posts about how to get this loot and that loot, how to build up rep, etc. and I just don't want to do that.  It is why I have never played WoW or other MMORPGs and it is probably my own fault for not really researching enough to know that while they didn't call it a MMORPG it actually is and I accept that but I really wish it had a SP game.

I feel much the same way. I'm not interested in gaming the system to get whatever it is that I need to do whatever it is that I'm supposed to do.

Fortunately, I've basically abandoned the story mode and am planning on saving it for my next character.  My warlock is level 21 and I've pretty much just been playing crucible.  I'm still not very good, but am enjoying it quite a bit.

However, in the crucible I will often get the same map 4 or 5 times in a row.  A lot of times its twilight gap. And I struggle mightily on that map.

That said, I'm now a fan of first light as I actually use the vehicles. slywink

You use it to buy legendary gear from The Speaker.

Calling what the speaker sells legendary gear is a bit of a stretch.  It's more legendary aesthetic items.   Xur on the other hand will sell you a legendary engram for motes of light.

Who is xur? And is it one legendary per coin? Please say yes.

Thanks, Xmann. My cholesterol number is at 253, but my LDL is pretty bad and my particle size is significantly greater (2.5x 'big' and 4x 'small') than it's supposed to be. So I figure I'm going to give it a go at the pill for 90 days, see what happens and then reasses.

27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 26, 2014, 03:01:24 AM
Did the heroic daily today. Just Ike and I. Took some doing but we got through it.

Appears it was the last mission of the story too, so now i've seen the 'ending'.  mad icon_biggrin

But whatever.  Two level 20s taking on a level 22 heroic made it appropriately tense. Felt great to get through it.  Though our reward was crap.

Having fun with this game even though I still barely understand what I'm doing.

I did that whole mission with a new rifle and it barely leveled up at all.  And all we got was a mote of light. Mmmkay. What am i supposed to do with that?

I'm not even attempting the queen's quest as I can't be bothered to try to get all those head shots...and I don't really understand how it benefits me even if I do get all of her swag.

Also, I joined FWC and it seems that I only make any new points on my rank with bounties? Does it not check peformance or wins/losses?

Anyway, I'm still having a great time with the game, but every single criticism I've seen is pretty much justified.

Though people who bitch about farming spots being nerfed need to be smacked. No offense.

I will admit I'm losing some of my passion for playing especially since my gearing has plateaued at 25.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.

What do you mean by 'not seeing positive movement'?

Just a bit away from my 40th so it was time to get the old blood checked for future causes of death and lo and behold my cholesterol is offa tha charts.

Most of it is hereditary, but it's still crazy bad as far as I can tell and I've been prescribed two statins that I really don't want to take.

I have read horror stories about statins so I'm hesitant to begin taking them but am hoping it would just be short term to get it managed and diet/life change (I know my success rate is low, sigh) will take care of the rest.

Anyone else in my boat with the dreaded triglycerides LDL nightmare?

Questions:

I'm now level 20. 

How do I join one of the crucible guilds? Visited one yesterday and there was no prompt

Where are the daily missions found?

In the crucible, when melee is fully charged is it a one hit kill?  (I'm a warlock)  I seem to go down alot even with fully charged shields from melee hits.

What does energy drain do practically in the MP?


I know this game is pretty divisive, but I'm really loving it.  Might get back to the story at some point too slywink>
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on: September 23, 2014, 04:36:55 PM
Updated the delivery date on the controller to 2nd week of october.

Now I just need to decide if I still want it. I think it looks pretty hawt.  Or should I wait for the eventual Gears of War 4 controller in 2017?

this isn't exactly true if you're pushing yourself.

Not sure what this means.

Yesterday I played some single player and cranked the difficulty up to 20 (I'm currently 22) and some parts at the end gave me a run for my money.  Died a few times and had to change up my tactics and play smarter.

I'm only level 18 so no 20 ranked games for me yet...Don't feel like I've played all that much actually.

Should I wait longer (I'm now at 18) or is 20 the magic time to do it?

You know what this means, right ATB?  It's a sign that you should get a PS4 so you can play it with Harpua and I.  Maybe even help me win a few games in the Crucible.  slywink

I just need to talk him into getting me one next slywink.

At this rate I won't help you win anything. my mighty .78 K/D has not contibuted to many victories.
