The alpha has been extended for a while.  btw, had I known that the alpha keys were going for $40 on ebay, I would have tried selling it.  insane that anyone would pay that much for a limited time trial. 

Quote from: @Bungie
There's a rumor that the #Destiny Alpha might be extended to allow dangerous experiments. Play beyond the official close at your own risk!

Got some time in with Watch Dogs and set out to play any online matchup that came except for the mobile ones as those stupidly don't count towards the progress bar outside of points. 

Ended up in a FFA decryption mode set in the camping area.  Man, what a cluster F that was.  I didn't get the win, but I did come out on top in terms of points. staying alive is harder there as you have such a limited area to run around in and almost no place to hide.  2nd round was downtown and I got an early lead and managed to get over half of it decrypted before someone ran me down and trapped me, then stole the file.  I wasn't able to get to a fast enough car before he had booked it out and he managed to stay ahead of everyone until the end.  both annoying and inspiring as I could have been in the same position.  I wish they hadn't tied any trophies to it as I don't know how long populations will last and I don't see them having a huge staying power for much longer.  I had no invasions and only one attempt which got wasted as soon as I updated some task I was doing.

Huh, for some reason I got an email with an alpha code from Amazon.  I suppose I've spent enough money there on games that they are just trying to get me to preorder this one.

Me too. I have no PS4.

PM me if you wants it.
its a sign.  You should buy  a PS4.

Also going to wrap up the CoD Ghosts campaign and try out the extinction mode.  I'm also going to get some time in with the Destiny alpha and Hardline beta before they go offline. 

Finished up the Ghosts SP mode.  I love how you progress in the game from being an unknown soldier to savior of the free world.  So realistic that you have to wonder, why didn't they promote this guy early on, they could have wrapped up that war 3 weeks after it started.  At least the set piece battles were fun.

Quote from: Gamespot
In order to share the game, you'll need to be playing it on either PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 and have a PlayStation Plus subscription, Ubisoft has revealed to GameSpot. If you meet those requirements, you'll be given ten invitations that can be sent out to PlayStation Network friends to play "a free trial of online co-op with you.

and this is how Ubisoft describes it:
Quote from: Dan Hay
We're going to be generous. We want you to basically download the game, jump in your buddy's game, play as Hurk, play for a couple hours, run around, experience the entirety of the world, take over some outposts, take over some fortress, understand what it's like to be able to wingsuit, to be able to climb on top of the elephants, to be able to get a whole bunch of new vehicles and weapons, and effectively play the game."

I saw the trailer for this during the Daily Show. My immediate thought was what the reaction would be if another country made a comedy about trying to kill the sitting US president.
excellent point.  I wonder what NK news is going to make of this. 

the trailer wasn't bad.  worth a viewing on netflix, assuming NK doesn't nuke us in retaliation or something.

You be best served by re-installing the OS.  by OEM, you mean 'came with AMD PC', is that right?  I haven't had to attempt this myself, but you might be ok with the new MB/CPU.  worth a try at least.  It may be possible to do a process called sysprep and make the existing install generic so it would recreate what's known as the machine SID, but then you'd have to deal with the legacy of the old system.  Plus, the OS generally performs much better with a fresh reinstall. 

as for Steam, you don't need to reinstall everything.  I've backed up a bunch and not through Steam itself.  I'll detail it out more when I get home with my Steam pc, but if you save the folders where they are stored plus the config file Steam uses to ID it, you can move them back in after Steam is installed.

Played for about 2 hours yesterday with a hunter.  I liked the melee after leveling up to get throwing knives.  not starting with a class specific special weapon is a bad idea imo as you have to play for a long chunk before you get to see class differences.  I noticed a bug/design quirk when I finally swapped the shotgun for the sniper that I bought between the first mission and the open world explore mode.  I had maxed secondary ammo with the SG then after the swap, had 0 sniper rifle ammo and none was around.  So, I swapped back and found that the game had zeroed my SG ammo as well.  The primary swap doesn't cause this to happen, thankfully.  I did about a 8 or so random missions in the explore mode and this is where the grindy MMO feel enters in.  I had several 'kill x of y' or 'kill x of y to get z item', one 'go here to hack a console' and one mission which was carbon copied from the first one, right down to the same location.  I'm granting that this is alpha and wouldn't expect the same experience to continue in beta/release.  

I ran into a few other players at this time, and the best moment was when I emerged from a structure and found two fighting a spawned Scarab-like tank.  We were not able to bring it down in the time limit offered but I noticed that each leg had separate health.  The regular spawns of Fallen come in via drop ship which can be damaged (and brought down potentially).  I ran across another dynamic mission in the form of a cap and hold to allow the not-guilty spark hack the console.  This summoned a new breed of enemy with a different attack and specials.  I later saw these same enemies fight against the Fallen (nice touch).  I also stumbled into a high-level enemy's camp and had to retreat.  

It looks like you can get mp contracts to complete in the Crucible.  These have that random generation like Halo Reach (iirc) as does the weapon/armor vendors and the Decryptors (unidentified loot you pick up).  

As for loot, I picked up about a half dozen pieces of various weapons and armor and a few unidentified pieces.  It's nice you can carry a bunch of them, even though you are limited to primary and secondary.  I did get a heavy weapon, but I haven't used it yet.  It seems to follow more along Diablo than Borderlands and armor has some variances along type, so you could end up in a matching set.  the more rare stuff has bonuses to attributes and can increase reload speed or allow more ammo of a specific type to be carried.  

The SP/co-op meld is nice, as you seemingly drop in/out to a large map without any noticeable sign.  The map is large and looks nice too.

here's a saved stream for anyone interested.

we should have a pool for who lives and dies.  I'm guessing Sully bites it to let both of them escape from a massive army and then Nathan bites it saving Elena.

Wonder what the odds are on a complete wipe.  There would have to be a world-saving moment for that to happen though.

Twitch is showing Xenoblade Chronicles X.  looks good, but they went to the amnesiac hero well.  they also set the opening sequence of the game in the dark. You'd think they'd chosen a brighter area to showcase.

Wow, amazing that this thread went dark for so long.  They posted MP and details.  Seems that you either get or set the max level which determines what your class abilities are.  6 vs 6.  Capture and hold was shown but other modes were discussed.  I'd be shocked if mp wasn't just as fun as the Halo series.

funny, the description of the plot sounds like a mix of Oblivion and Skyrim.  Demon worlds and dragons.
