Sadly there was a dupe glitch and it could potentially screw the game over.  blech

In other news I've finished the main story and started the second faction at Veteran Rank 1. yay

For those that don't know, if you are happy with your class there is no need to make a character in the other factions since when the story is complete you start in the next faction as if you just created the character keeping all your stuff/stats.  It's basically New Game +, then when you finish that faction you go to the third for New Game ++.  So one character can do all content in the game.

I'm thinking of selling my Xbox One.

If I do, can I buy Titanfall for the 360 and keep my account, stats, season pass, etc?

Curious if I could do this for BF4 as well.

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
pretty sure the answer is no. 

For BF4 you could do a one time transfer of stats/progress from 360 to one but only that direction.  For COD it's the same account so you could bounce back and forth no problem.  For Titanfall it doesn't even use the same account servers so almost certain it's a no.

20 hours to get to level 10 seems like that would be way below the average time for a casual gamer.  i would guess it's more around 12-14 or so for a casual gamer and 7-10 for a less casual gamer

14  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: April 09, 2014, 11:34:13 PM
it would have to be a REALLY casual person to take a couple weeks to get to 10.  It's only a few hours of gameplay to get to that point.

I would STRONGLY recommend holding off on watching tonight's episode if you haven't seen Captain America yet. It won't completely ruin the movie, but I think that CA will be more enjoyable without seeing what happens on tonight's SHIELD. They didn't waste any time jumping right into the huge changes that one would expect after seeing The Winter Soldier, and they give up quite a few secrets that would take some of the surprise out of the movie.

Warnings aside, tonight was probably the best episode of AoS so far, and it's pretty awesome to see the way that they're pulling all parts of the Marvel universe together. Now I'm really curious to see what happens next week. At this point, I can totally see AoS setting the stage for the next round of Marvel films...very cool  icon_cool

Thanks for the warning. I think what I will do is save the rest of the season, then watch them all at once after I see Captain America. Which probably won't happen until it comes out on Blu-Ray.

the bad thing is if enough people do this and they notice, they might think nobody likes the show any more.  I really wish they would redo how ratings are done.

I'll try to stay out of this one (I've already made my view clear on DX12), but I'll say this: For Brad's sake, I hope he was either misquoted or taken out of context.

If Brad made console games I would give some credence to that statement, but I seriously doubt his claims. 




I'll second this.

i like how slow it is, too many games are way too fast.  Don't you guys remember DAOC originally and EQ1 where we spent months and months playing the game while slowly progressing?  That part of those games I was fine with.  Felt more like an investment.  Then came games where in one to two weeks you could be max level and people have a roster of max level chars.  (also keep in mind that with the right drive you can power level in here too, there are plenty of 50's that use the good ol aoe grind which I hate)

PVE combat is challenging, and those bosses that seem to have nine lives are likely healing and you're not interrupting the heals or otherwise preventing it.  dodge rolls, blocking and interupts are crucial to going from floor paste to victor in any combat that isn't a zerg (public dungeons)

I also felt they did a great job explaining stuff in the help files and tutorials, but I notice a lot of you are being confused by stuff.  Hit F1, spend some time reading. 

There is a massive amount of content (and keep in mind we're only seeing one of three factions starting areas).  In fact in doing all the quests in a zone you will likely outlevel the content there is so much.  It's like a few previous mmos where at some point you might want to skip some quests to keep progressing quickly then come back to finish them much later when it will be faster.  If you're still doing quests 2-4 levels under you, you're going to level even slower.  Stick to stuff your level if leveling speed is a concern.  Wear armor with exploration bonuses and get out there and explore and you'll level faster as well.

If you feel the need to cover every square inch of every zone AND you don't like replaying areas... a game like Diablo probably isn't really your type of game fwiw.  It's based around getting to checkpoints and even more so about replaying the same stuff again and again.

there are legendaries that are only available in the caches you get after completing all bounties in an act, the chance of getting these is not affected by difficulty.  This is stupid. So the best way to get them is to go through as fast and many times as you can on normal.

that's only if you're moving into mobs, the steed allows you to move away from mobs (or bring them with you).  it can be used to get out more often

It's interesting if you check out the most used skills/builds, both Blessed Hammer and Steed Charge are in the top but I haven't seen them used much by our guys.
I use the hammers, as my items/build is designed around being completely surrounded by enemies.    The steed I find kind of useless, and the cooldown is way too long.  I rather use Falling Sword to move around.

somewhat ironic since falling sword has 30 second cooldown to the steed's 25 slywink  (20 with lord commander)

The last rune for the horse is pretty useful, can drag mobs wherever and when combined with the instant condemn you can whip them around and blow them all up.

29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: April 02, 2014, 05:11:25 PM
I cant' stress enough just how much damage those archers do, especially with the lord commander rune smile

Also was fun to find out that when Forge called in the archers, my monk's unity triggered for each of them giving us all a 20% damage increase for the 5 seconds they are up (including boosting them)
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: April 02, 2014, 12:17:24 PM
mine did ok on treasure pygmies with the build above.  the archers shredded them ok enough and the burst of fist of the heavens is better for chasing them than the spinny hammerville
31  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: April 01, 2014, 08:32:03 PM
your numbers seem really good imo, but your skills seem like odd choices.

I'd suggest giving this a try :

Justice - whatever rune
Fist of the Heavens - whatever rune
Phalanx - Bowmen
Heaven's fury - the triple one
Bombardment - whatever rune
condemn - instant explosion

for passives :

Lord commander
hold your ground
renewal
whatever

make sure your shield has 20% block rate or higher

If you have problems surviving, remove bombardment or condemn and replace with the shield glare (charm).

That build got me through torment at about a third of your dps/toughness so it should work fine.  The archers are amazing fwiw.

You can get a stack of them for finishing a Nephalem Rift.

Yeah, ended up getting some that way last night.  I was level 65 and joined a group doing Torment 1 rifts and I think we did 4 of them and I got to level 70 and had a nice chunk of them.  They were in their mid-100s Paragon levels and I was barely damaging monsters and could die very easily.  Not sure if paragon levels come into play when the monsters are generated, but I was playing Torment 1 before Reaper came out and able to play just fine, but now it's too tough for me.  Will have to either find groups that are as patient or play on lower difficulties until I get geared up again.

Grue remember monster scale up based on group size and gear levels, so you were probably outleveled based on these criteria.  You might have had a easier time if you tried Torment lvl 1 solo.  

Just a thought

The difficulty seems up from what I remember as well.  I think I can only handle Expert at this point, lvl 70 (P32).  I thought my gear was decent but clearly it's not cutting it.  I just hit 70 though so maybe that's why.  I think my DPS number is around 200k which I presume is fairly low.

BTW this may be a well known thing for many of you, but I noticed a huge difference in my actual damage output (not just the DPS value but the amount of things dying on screen) when I equipped some gloves with +10% crit chance.  Yellow crit numbers were flying off the screen like crazy.   Of course this was only on Hard so maybe some other stat is more critical (no pun intended) to make it in Torment?

If your damage number on the sheet is 200k, there is no reason you shouldn't be able to do torment 1.  I'm only at 80k and just played through the game on Torment 1.

A lot of that post confuses me Ritt.  Roguelikes are typically turn based and that's part of why graphics don't matter in the genre.  Also I much preferred Titan Quest's skill system to diablos and it also had the benefit of having a respec system that was expensive but doable which is still better than starting a new character because of a misclicked or misassigned point.

In other news, Respawn has implemented one of the best anti-cheat measures I've ever seen.  Instead of banning you when they detect a cheat, they force you to play solely with other cheaters.

Probably too late notice to set something up this weekend? How about we start planning a Titanfall night (or day) next week? Friday, Sat, or Sunday is good for me smile day or night

I still haven't had a multiplayer forza 5 race... frown  need a night for that too.  The game is REALLY good, but nobody plays
