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.

10  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?
11  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: HBO to start "no cable sub required" streaming service in 2015 on: October 15, 2014, 06:56:39 PM

Annnnd just as I was logging off a blue engram dropped a legendary AR.  At long last!   icon_lol

Last night was probably my most 'profitable' so far in this game.
14  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.



15  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.
21  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.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 10, 2014, 08:50:12 PM
Well i got my purple armor from the queen (head, chest) and have found purple booties.  So, i'll just run with the legendary hand cannon for now and see what happens next.

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

slywink

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

I may have missed the details, but how did this get past the inspector? And if it's a new new house, then...the builder is on the hook.
30  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Crisis of faith or is it over? on: October 08, 2014, 02:29:27 PM
It breaks my heart to see threads like this.

I know the power of Christ and what He can do in people’s lives and it brings me great sorrow that the Church He cares for has degraded to such a degree that we have reactions like these.

Sinners would rather embrace teachings and lifestyles that make them believe they are nothing and of absolutely no value in the scheme of things rather than the truth. 

The sin nature plays a huge part of that and the deep seeded penchant for rebellion as well, but seeing people proclaim Christ with their mouth and then deny them with their actions does great damage.

I am in that category a lot because of my own flaws that I battle daily... I think back to some of the wars I used to engage in on these very forums and while I admire my passion to bring those to the Lord, my methods were heavy handed and unloving…and without love we are nothing.

I've swung too far the other way now, not willing to dive in here any longer because it truly is a waste of words and effort. I’m not convinced that many of you are willingly seeking God other than to mock him and those who espouse him. But not trying is not loving either.

I pray for you guys. Not consistently but I do and have and always will.  I know that if I could come to faith God can lead you to himself as well.  But you must be willing to sincerely seek.

If you want to shop at the Vanguard store or the Crucible store, you need to take off your FWC item for a while.

There it is. I had no idea.  I was wondering after playing SO much crucible I still haven't reached rank one in the crucible.
32  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 08, 2014, 01:40:25 PM
My question is: if I take off the FWC one and put on a vanilla one will crucible rank up faster?

how have you not hit rank 1 with crucible?  did you forget to take your faction cloak off?  Also you can get a free AR randomly on level up with a faction, they all have one, just not for sale.

You should never hit the cap for glimmer, buy ammo packs to prevent it from happening, you will need them for late game stuff

Wait. Are you telling me if i take off the faction arm band (warlock) I'll level up faster in the crucible?  You magnificent bastard!

And maybe the AR for FWC is only for level 3?  Now I need to find out!
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 08, 2014, 04:58:52 AM
Did moderately well given that my AR is blue, but then the heavies hit the server and I was just dying left and right.  Went back to regular crucible.

Figures the one faction I chose and am closest to hitting level 3 on doesn't sell legendary ARs...so I've pretty much wasted my time with them.

I also have reached the cap on glimmer, have played the crap out fo the crucible but still haven't hit level 1, am not really looking forward to hunting the 40 different resoruces I need to upgrade my kit...so I'm kind fo stuck.

The leveling requirements in this game are kind of ridiculous.

I'm about 80% into the 2nd book and I don't understand the dislike of it.  There's less Denna, more character growth for Kvothe and more things actually happening.  At this pace though the third book better be like 3,000 pages because I'm not sure how he's spending 2 books on the early teens and one book on the rest of the guy's life. slywink

38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: October 07, 2014, 02:20:44 PM
Yeah. I'm barely competent in this game when all things are equal. No chance I'm going up against level 30s with crazy defense ratings and a shotgun that can kill me in one hit from the other side of the map.  mad

But...the pull of the lords of iron is real.

I may have mentioned this before since I've suspected it was the problem for awhile, but it was confirmed for me today so here it is again.  If you have 'Instant On' selected, the XB1 will often end up with a moderate or strict NAT due to how it resumes.  If you play multiplayer games at all, I strongly suggest switching to 'Energy Saving' which means it takes longer to turn on and no longer resumes, but it fully refreshes the network connection on turn on.  Hopefully MS fixes this soon since it's been a semi-known issue since launch.

This is HUGELY helpful, Hark. Thanks. I was wondering why my NAT had suddenly jumped to Moderate.
