It's a first person shooter with shades of a few other genres thrown in.  It's got single player, coop and pvp so give the beta a shot at least.

Otter!  You went PC again!  icon_lol

I'm pretty terrible at Dark Souls, but I grabbed it on XB1 and will be streaming it in rotation with a couple other games.

Already bought DS3 and will be playing it and Battleborn beta and Division with a side helping of Skyforge when bored.

Loving Forced Showdown and Enter the Gungeon on PC right now.  Looking forward to next week though juggling The Division's patch, Battleborn's Beta and Dark Soul 3 should be interesting.  At least my stream should be varied though I might do more BB than the others just for viewer share.

Won $500 cash from radio station for a 'Failure to Launch' contest since I lived with my parents at the time.  They gave a bunch of people who lived with their parents screening tickets then at the show picked one to win.  I showed up in a kilt with a mohawk and it was mine.

I've got 100/10 and use every bit of it.  I could use more upstream though since I stream.  1000/1000 would be a bit overkill but at the same time I could definitely take advantage of it.
128  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 25, 2016, 02:31:06 PM
that's far from new, that's been the standard way to bait people since the alpha.  It's far less annoying and hard to deal with than some of the other ways thankfully.  Basically anytime you are in the DZ, just don't use anything you can't control and be extra careful about where you shoot.  Don't be afraid to let off the trigger.

the chests were all changed in recent patch.  The DZ 30 chests now have purples instead of blues and are worth it for crafting materials if nothing else.  The DZ Key chests have a chance for HE loot.

FWIW, the key chests don't require any rank, just a key.  DZ 50 is where the real rewards are though in the form of HE stuff and blueprints.  Wish you were with us Otter, we just hit 50.
131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: EA Access - worth it? on: March 23, 2016, 02:35:32 PM
All depends on you.  When a bunch of EA games were coming out I was interested in it was definitely worth it.  Saved 10% on three games and played Bf4 'free' during the time I had it, plus got to play all three of those games early for 10 hours.

134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 13, 2016, 10:21:55 PM
it's pretty much worst case scenario for a game looking for longevity unfortunately.  They screwed up in a way that let people get geared too well, too fast.  Hard to fix, and with a game having pvp as well it can be a nightmare.  With the nerf they did basically the people who already did this are the ones who are geared well enough to easily keep doing it even with the lower rewards.

Not sure how or if it can be fixed at this point.  A fair number of the people who have overgeared will probably stop playing and come back each expansion though so it might end up mostly ok for those of us proceeding normally.

My other concern is the purpose of the DZ funds.  The DZ Rank 50 gear uses Phoenix Credits like the other endgame stuff which is odd.  So by the time you get to 50 you probably have an amazing amount of DZ funds that are completely worthless.
135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 12, 2016, 07:55:28 PM
The green arrow rarely means it's an actual upgrade overall, you really should be looking at all the stats.  It's just like Diablo in that sense.  If you just go with whether the game tells you it improves 'something' then you'll end up being strangely geared or undergeared with no synergy.

Many of the best things on loot aren't even indicated by any arrows, arrows just tell you armor, firepower, stamina or electronics upgrades (and damage)

Mikagami and I are both 30, Teggy is getting closed.  We haven't rushed anything, just doing missions and side missions in order.
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 10, 2016, 10:18:30 PM
I've been playing on XB1 pretty much nonstop since launch and only got booted for the maintenance.
138  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: March 07, 2016, 04:31:14 PM
servers are already up and have been since early this morning.  Digital copies still won't activate until the normal time though.  If you got a physical copy early you can play
139  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Fable Legends on: March 07, 2016, 04:29:37 PM
I play it almost everyday and bought some stuff in it.  Thought it was quite fun.

If you are going to play on XB1 and have the Nvidia code, you can sell it for $30-40.  Not sure where but people on reddit have been doing it.

I would have gone PS4, but not waiting that long. GMG pre-order is a go.

Same here.

Much as I loved the first one, still perfectly happy to wait...

I haven't really read up on this game much, but if it's anything like the previous one, I'm likely going to want to Platinum it on the PS4. I'll probably skip the PC version as a result. Getting 100% on PC felt like a waste when I couldn't get the platinum for it.

I'm getting it on the PC (someday) because trophies\achievements are meaningless, and I'd rather experience it with the best graphics available smile
I like leaderboards and competition and the PC is awful for that due to cheating. Though I agree that trophies and achievements are meaningless, beating people isn't slywink

Tried this out on PC for about 45 minutes this morning and it seems OK, but it may take more time to really grab me. 

Something really feels off about the camera.  It's like a first person camera control but pulled back into third person and it just feels unnatural. 

I'm also not a fan of any of the UI, the cover indicators, how fiddly interacting with things is and just the general sense of the area being both very detailed but very static and useless. 

Anyway, I'll go back later today or this weekend to try some more and hopefully it grabs me then.

If it helps any, when I first fired up the alpha I almost turned the thing off in severe disappointment in the first 20 minutes or so.  By the end of the first couple hours I was hooked though.  Since then I've played dozens of hours of the two betas.  It took some time to see what was beneath the surface.  There is a lot more than is apparent, especially with the tiny slice we have in the beta.

the grindiest of the grindy I've seen in a long time.  I was deciding between this and BnS awhile back and after doing the research I just couldn't handle the level of grind in this one.

If you didn't like the twitch (or 'fun' in my mind slywink ) of Blade and Soul you probably won't like the combat in BDO either.  Both are quite fighter gamey in combat.  It's what makes me like them but doesn't seem to be what makes a game click for you

I don't know that that is a bug Otter.  For Spider and EXO armor you have to build each individual piece, so you can do it multiple times.  Most of the stuff in the Proving Grounds is that way (though not all).
148  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: February 10, 2016, 03:17:23 PM
i got lucky and got the crossbow from black market, it's basically a ballistic knife with a 6 round magazine.... that you can dual wield.   icon_eek

Every bit as crazy as it sounds. Went somethign like 44-9 first try with the dual wield attachment.  Also can have a bayonet attachment for one shot melee

New rifle is basically a buffed Sheiva in the disguise of an M1 Garand

New melee weapons aren't just reskins but have different swing speeds one of which is stupid fast.  

Not sure what they were thinking.  The sword looks cool though.

recorded some clips of crossbow in action
149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: February 10, 2016, 01:22:21 PM
Game just went P2W, film at 11.

There are now weapons available in the Black Market that are really, really good and not just cosmetic.  Can't quite understand why they would go this route knowing how people would react.

I believe I got mine in the wrong order regarding IW and Sledgehammer, I liked Ghost more than AW.

you would probably really like the latest CoD, it's a lot like an updated Black Ops 1 or 2 which I know you enjoyed. 

I did hear that it was pretty good. I'll likely hold off until the new game comes out in November before diving back into the franchise, but there's always the chance that I'll fall off the wagon.

I'll probably just stick to BO3 instead of picking up the new one.  Slim chance I'll get the next Sledgehammer game and almost zero chance I'll get the next IW one.

to be fair you didn't say they were boring, you said it would be a blowout in the Panther's favor and kinda rubbed it in a bit which a Bronco's fan would probably take offense to. 
154  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 09, 2016, 01:03:49 AM
both are important, but I do the GTS first because I think having the extra squad member(s) is more important first than the potential extra ability.  I could see both starts being good though
155  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 08, 2016, 08:48:56 AM
Intel (as in information, not the currency in the game) is key in any combat.  So something that tells you where enemies are should be very important to you.  Odd you feel it would be a waste since that's all it does when it's something people die for in real life all the time.
156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 07, 2016, 08:44:50 PM
I'm on an older system with a pretty outdated video card (hd6900) and having no problems except a slightly sluggish fps in the post mission loading screen.  Playing on High.  Most games I turn down or off shadows, didn't even have to on this one.  Odd how different the performance is between systems
