Thanks Pug.

Seems like this game could be a full time job.

And all we got was a mote of light. Mmmkay. What am i supposed to do with that?


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.

Question: Does Joystick hand out 5/5s like candy. What about polygon giving 9.5s?

I WANT THIS GAME TO BE AWESOME!

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.

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'?

168  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cholesterol Blues (Paging Pete Rock) on: September 24, 2014, 06:10:24 PM
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>

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?

I've redeemed a few.  I mean  you don't really need that good of gear to play the SP.

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.

So i've been saving my engrams until i hit level 20.

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

That's adorable that he just decided the PS4 version was probably the right one.

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.
179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So, I have a pretty cool boss on: September 22, 2014, 01:51:35 PM
It has been a pretty stressful 6-8 weeks or so at work.  People leaving, partners being dismissed, major contract schedule compressions, resource shortages, internal interpersonal dramas…you name it.  As many of you would expect, just like I am here in the GamingTrend forums, I have been a steadying and calming force of reason through much of it.

My boss pulls me into his office last Friday after another unexpected torpedo to the hull that is the listing ship of his company and after we talked through some things he mentioned how grateful he was for me being so reliable.

He then pulls out a copy of Destiny on PS4 and gives it to me as a small token of appreciation.

I don’t spend a LOT of time talking about games at work, but he knows I am a gamer. For him to take the time to go to Best Buy, talk with their monkeys to find out what is the new hotness, and buy it for me REALLY means a lot to me.

It makes no difference to me that it’s a game I already have and it’s on a platform I don’t own.  The gesture itself is…significant

He told me he got me the gift receipt in case I already had it or didn’t want it. I told him I might just keep it for sentimental reasons.

Buuuut…Shadows of Mordor is almost out….  icon_wink

So folks who REALLY wanna wait until it's "done" might need to wait for some hotfixes. Though by the time you reach the California content (maybe 20-30 hours), maybe they'll have issued some patches by then.  icon_smile
If I recall correctly, Fallout 2 had numerous bugs that would break the game outright on release, so this is just par for the course.  icon_smile

Which is why i never bought another Interplay title. I was so angry when my save no longer worked and they were basically like 'yep, you need to start over.'   *Fist Shaking*

YOu can switch between subclasses at will.

Okay let me ask this:

So I'm level 15 and a level 0 whatever the 2nd class is for warlock. Do I continue to unlock abilities only as I level? So level 16 before I get the next thing and level 17 before I get the next?

Or is it just based on experience acquired?
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 19, 2014, 03:55:57 PM
thanks for the info on the subclasses.  if there are six combos (2x per character) how come we only have 3 character slots?  :'(
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 19, 2014, 12:53:49 PM
So I hit 15 and have unlocked the subclass.

I do I now have to unlock everything again for the new class? Is the idea that I play through this again with the same character t ype but with different abilities or is the unlocking expedited because I'm already 15?

There should be a "Pogo-Kill" achievement and some sort of pogo-stick-melee-weapon.

It's like Easter out there.

It's basically Halo.  Run at a target and whoever melees first wins.

Good thread.

While not really binge watching I:

Finished up Breaking Bad. Season 5 was amazing
Have worked through 3 seasons of Justified (love it)
My wife and I have watched almost all of the 3rd season of Swamp People
We watched a couple of 'season' of Pawn stars but some are like 10 episodes

looking forward to new girl hitting netflix (today!) and walking dead and SOA.

1. Bungie has the worst writers in the business so I'm not sure why anyone is surprised the story is lacking.

2. Their level design has always been suspect so I'm not sure why anyone...

3. Their mission design has always been sub par at best so I'm not sure...


Destiny is a hoot. I'm having a great time. I'm only at level 11 Warlock and can't wait to start over as a new class..or see what happens at level 15...and at level 20 and continue exploring (the quite empty environs).  Then there will be the crucible to dabble in...

There's a lot I don't understand still, but am figuring things out on my own. And I'm not in a hurry.

The game is mostly fine as is, IMO, and the potential is huge. I just don't know that Bungie has any idea how to make it live up to what could be there.

I did the first strike mission last night.  I had waited a bit as I didn't have enough of an open window and I've heard the strikes were long.  Well, that much is true.  Long and monotonous.  1 MacGuffin fight around a Ghost, then a long protracted battle against a walker, only to end with another boss fight against a giant eyeball.  Not exactly a highlight mission imo.  



<shrugs>

I loved that mission.
