There is in fact a remove button!

IF, however, Eco removed his own thread, I think he should be temp banned as it's just pure bad form (and I've gamed with him in the past and like him from those experiences).

I don't enjoy doing the daily heroic mission, but it's such an efficient way of getting Ascendant materials

How else can you get them? I know you get some for the first public one you gold, but what else is there.

And yes. You should be able to buy materials with glimmer or trade stuff to get other stuff.

Anyone have any advice on picking up a generator? I would like to have a whole house set up, but can't really afford the cost at this time so I'm looking for something that can keep some of the lights and the refrigerator on etc.

Supposed to be a doozy of a winter...

Well, this week's weekly heroic strike is a pain in the ass with just two people.  Egads.

Yeah, Mikagami and I were banging our heads on the wall doing that one.  We did fine up until the Phogoth room, and mainly had issues with all the AOE bombardment from Knights and Wizards.  We finally did ok when we retreated to the room right before the room the Shrieker spawns in and fought off the minion waves from there.  When it was just us and Phogoth, it was still extremely tedious and boring whittling down his bullet sponge HP bar.

Wait, the knights and wizards eventually stop spawning?  I thought they always kept coming randomly during that fight.

3 waves I believe.

I bought destiny. I moved 6 days later. Only played for 2 or 3 light gaming session days. Should I just ignore it and sell it off after just reading bitchings and moaning about it. All were a concern. No story. Super repetitive. But yet I enjoyed the beta. Anyone wanna play in the next 2 weeks when I get my whole house rewired? Ha! Or should I ditch it or play it?

I think the game is fun enough.  I still frustratingly enjoy the MP.  And the grinding is both annoying and enjoyable...but mostly annoying.  And I told the fellas last night that there's no way that I'm going to play it through the whole month of November until the new content comes out...hence COD purchase.

That said I've got over 3 days of playing time into it since launch and I still feel compelled to play it...though I'm not sure why.

I've never done the raid and I'd love to give it a try. I could also bring in Ertic, an OO forumer who I now boardgame with most Saturdays, and one of his real life friends.

Should we just name a night for newbie raid night and try and get this rolling?  Saturday is out for Ertic and me, but any other night this week should work.

Sadly this weekend won't work for me...

Only reason I know anything about it is because CheapyD talked about it on his podcast.

This is small fish in a small pond pretending they're apex predators when no one- and that includes most gamers- even cares.


That said the whole forum given to fools claiming there's misjustice in EVERYTHING needs to stop.

So this is what at least a 4-12 season feels like.  It's amazing.  So much delight.

I won't even raise the idea that 5-11 is possible because surely it is unpossible!

Wish you had listened while Ryan was alive. He was the heart and soul of the show.

The recent changes to making Brad host and Rykert as a regular guest has them doing the best shows since he died. I'm enjoying it once again.

Any Vault of Glass n00bs on XB1 want to try the raid sometime? I've still not done it. The crew I play with have done it a bunch but I kind of want to experience it fresh.

21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / COD Veterans (and noobs): Are you getting Advanced Warfare? on: October 15, 2014, 08:35:52 PM
Anecdotally, nearly everyone I usually play COD with is planning to let this year's release pass them by.  Now that's not to say they didn't say the same thing last time, but this year it seems far more concrete.

I took 2 years off of COD, enjoyed Ghosts a good bit, but find myself firmly in the undecided camp.  I don't like what they've done adding more Halo elements to the game with the jetpacks and double jumping, but I find that I really enjoy all the jumping and gliding in Destiny MP...but if I want to play Destiny MP, I'll play Destiny MP.

My gut tells me I'll get it, but it's not 100% decided. (My preference would be to wait for Treyarch's next version...)


COD vets: if you vote no, what will you need to see in order to buy the game this year?
22  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: HBO to start "no cable sub required" streaming service in 2015 on: October 15, 2014, 06:56:39 PM

Last night was probably my most 'profitable' so far in this game.
25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 15, 2014, 05:49:19 AM
Well, I think I might love this game.

Finally got my first exotic bounty and am going for the Thorn  hand cannon.

One of the challenges is get 500 void kill points in the crucible.

I am having a ball doing this.



26  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Liberal Fascism in Houston on: October 15, 2014, 05:36:26 AM
Very interested in Fireball's take on this. I think he's in Houston? Or maybe it was Austin?

Quote
The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

So liberal leadership has now:
1. implemented drone strikes on us citizens without trial
2. established the most widespread violation of privacy the world has ever seen via the NSA
3. leveraged the US revenue service to combat those who disagree with them
4. suppressed the freedoms of speech and religion

there are places to get this info quickly and easily without blindly bumbling through the game missing stuff fwiw slywink  Regarding the exotics, it tells you when you put one on that you can't wear two at once.

The lag in pvp has been getting ridiculous.  I put together a clip of some truly ridiculous lag moments.  Also stop ignoring me in game pug Tongue

Well I guess that's true of every topic but it kind of ruins the whole exchange of ideas and help on GT, doesn't it.  icon_wink

And thanks for the help guys.

Pug I watched that build vid you posted and had some pretty good success using a recovery build. So thanks for that.

getting zero rep for iron banner in a loss is the most bullshit thing I've ever dealt with in a MP game.  It makes losing so much more infuriating, and to top it off people tend to just leave as soon as you fall behind anyway since they don't get the rep and don't want to try to win

I feel like they addressed this on the blog on Friday,


Quote
Sadly, but predictably, not everyone is so confident in themselves. What are you gonna do about all the quitters?
 
Derek:  Please remind players that, win or lose, they get Crucible Marks, XP, and Gear rewards for completing the match. As with all things Destiny, we’re looking at the data and we’ll come up with a plan to address it in future events.


 Also, I've noticed A LOT of people dropping from matches in the regular crucible...of course they may be experiencing drops like I am...

Two questions:

1. Is it true that you can only have one piece of exotic armor on a time?  I mean is there any reason for me to swap out my exotic gauntlets for an exotic chestplate?

2. Is there any reason to buy items from the speaker? Do they do anything?  They seem purely decorative.

I don't know if it's my router or what, but I got dumped about 6 times last night too in a 90 minute session...it reconnects immediately and speedtests don't show any degradation of connection...and it always happens at the end of a strike.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 11, 2014, 04:30:21 AM
Game dumped me out of missions/crucible about a 1/2 dozen time tonight.

very frustrating.

Bah. It's great owning a house.  

We have been blessed that two of the three houses we've owned have been brand new.  The one that wasn't, however, we sank a ton of money into...but fortunately we made an absolute killing on it when we sold it.

The house we're in now, I hope to never leave.  We did spend about 25k finishing the basement (doing almost all the work was my father and me) and I'd love to some day finish the attic.  We do need new carpet upstairs, but things wear out. That's just the way it is.

YMMV. slywink

FWC has an AR you can get randomly, but it's random.  You should have done some research and picked a faction that sells an AR so you could buy one if they didn't give you one.  You also probably should have at least read a paragraph on how to faction in the first place Tongue

Yeah. I did it based on teg's post a few pages back about what abilities they focused on. Last time I listen to him.  disgust
