41  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / GOP Storms Congress: FulL Control of Senate and House on: November 05, 2014, 01:52:27 PM
In a clear rejection of...I'm not sure what, the GOP has taken full control of congress.  Now we know that rather than almost nothing getting done, absolutely nothing will get done.

But, one thing is clear, the dems abuse of power wasn't tolerated at the grass root level and voters kicked them to the curb in a powerful way.  Now if there's a GOP president in 2016 we can finally get this country going in the wrong direction the other way. slywink

Just spent an hour getting absolutely brutalized in MP.  K/D is down to .79.  I feel like it's the usual 2nd day ATB does awful and hates the world blues. 

I don't think the game is especially fast, but the verticality takes some getting used to for sure.  There's not really good explanation on what the exo powers do or in what circumstances you might want to use them...and I pretty much forget about them altogether. Compared to Destiny, the weapons just don't feel as tight or accurate and the controls, even though they're not all that different, don't feel as good.

I keep wanting to melee with the RB and that has cost me. I wish i could duplicate the destiny controls exactly. Maybe there's a way.

It seems like the ballers were all on this morning so maybe there will be more scrubs on this afternoon to make me feel better about myself. I think my prediction of trying to keep and maintain 1.0 will be accurate for this game. Perhaps 1.5.

So far the maps are pretty neat and varied. Don't have a sense of how many there are or how they are laid out.  Just liek with destiny, reading the mini map will take some getting used to as I have no idea what i'm looking at. It looks like there should be a guy coming around the corner, but then he comes from behind me..

We'll see. Other than being frustrated at getting merk'd, I'm enjoying it so far.

Played about an hour or so of the sp and so far it's pretty neat. Lots of gadgets being thrown at you and it can be pretty overwhelming.

Did 3 or 4 mp matches and I really have no idea what I'm doing with anything.  I'm randomly turning on gadgets and when I mean to be throwing nades and having shields pop out of my arm when i mean to be meleeing.

It feels really tight so far and no issues with servers.  Got a 12 kill streak and used the UAV, remote turret and the Vulcan drone.  The turret was pretty spray and pray and seemed to take a lot of hits to kill a guy.  The Vulcan overheated  quickly and as a result of these limitations at least these two killstreaks seemed to be pretty balanced the one time I got to use them.  Seems like knife kills are just as op as always

Escaped with a 1.86 KD over this handful of matches.

Overall first blush impressions are quite good.

Finished Best Served Cold last night.

Very much enjoyed it. While I think the character development is better in the original trilogy, I found the writing in this book better.

5/5.

Is the new version too fast or too vertical?

If i had not played a bunch of destiny  MP, I would likely have been out for these reasons.  But playing that game has helped me get used to double jumping, vertical environments and pretty fast speeds.

I'm lowering my expectations with regard to how successful (K/D wise) I am, so I hope to enjoy it.

This week's heroic weekly strike wasn't too bad.  Especially after I found out my void damage sniper rifle did ridiculous damage on Sekrion.

I had a tough time with it...

Pre ordered and downloaded and in spite of myself i'm looking forward to it.

Played a little ghosts last night and it seems like moving in concrete compared to destiny which is odd because halo always seemed super slow compared to COD...

Thorn is absolutely amazing, you are quite mistaken.

It's very slow to fire damage isn't terrific, and it's very slow to reload which is a problem when as it only 6 in the cylinder...

Invective!

I now have 3 exotic weapons:
Thorn (sucks)
Invective (tbd)
Suros Regime (pretty hellah)

And just in time to cut back almost all playing so that I can fire up Ghosts and begin honing for next week.  Wooo!

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.

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!

77  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?
