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. 
46  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
47  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.
48  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I'm on an older system with a pretty outdated video card (hd6900) and having no problems except a slightly sluggish fps in the post mission loading screen.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
49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 07, 2016, 12:43:51 AM
Still trucking but I fear I researched my way into a corner that will make dealing with the doomsday mechanic impossible.

51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 05, 2016, 04:01:33 AM
my willpower is fading and it shouldn't be. so many other games to play, but I guess most of them are multiplayer and nobody ever sticks with a game long enough to keep playing with me.  ninja
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] XCOM 2 on: February 05, 2016, 12:46:28 AM
so many games to play already and nobody ever played the multiplayer in the first one so I'm waiting on cheap
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: February 03, 2016, 08:50:19 AM
This continues to be criminally underplayed here slywink  Expansion just came out, it's free.  Season pass holders get the two new operatives free now, everyone else can buy for in game money next week.  New maps and stuff too.

54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: February 02, 2016, 02:46:40 PM
I'm quite surprised you have that many kills and that few specialists gold.
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: February 02, 2016, 08:46:05 AM
always watch out for people that aren't obviously in a group AND have nothing in their loot pack that are hanging around the extraction zone.  Also any group of 3-4 is enough to worry about just because people tend to get froggy when they know they have backup.

I had a lot of fun in the DZ, and it was mostly friendly or at least neutral people.  People band together pretty quickly vs rogues and seemed mostly tolerant even if you go rogue accidentally while helping.  Had several times I accidentally went red for 20 seconds and the neutrals nearby didn't do anything since they knew how it happened.

I do wish that if someone routinely goes rogue they would be marked in some way and you wouldn't be penalized as much if you shoot first next time.  A few people were gaming the system to always get you in a situation where you know they are going to kill you but can't shoot first or you go rogue and not them.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 31, 2016, 04:27:33 AM
what would increased player count have to do with it? darkzones are capped instances to prevent that
57  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 29, 2016, 01:01:03 AM
Most of the time randoms seem to be friendly and just trying to get their loot out safely.  Just don't hang out at extraction and it works well.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 28, 2016, 10:03:22 PM
enjoying this so far.  The beta seems quite limited though, more so than most demos or betas imo.  Dark Zone seems to have more potential than I expected.  With a bit of tweaking they might be able to make it work with strong penalties for being a dick, yet good rewards as well to keep it tempting.
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox free Games With Gold program on: January 28, 2016, 04:26:42 AM
excited about hand of fate, I've played quite a bit on pc and wanted it on xb1 also but didn't want to double pay
60  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 27, 2016, 06:41:39 PM
I'll be playing and hopefully streaming starting at 4am EST
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 23, 2016, 02:07:20 PM
the one survivor of the original group took out his teammates after they were weakened and/or downed by the other team.
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: January 22, 2016, 07:32:03 PM
It's probably more along the lines if your friends are ganking you, you should have other friends.
63  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Blade and Soul on: January 21, 2016, 12:27:41 PM
I'm on one of the lower pop servers fwiw, they all get packed at various times
64  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Blade and Soul on: January 20, 2016, 11:02:04 AM
Been pretty hooked by this one.  Kato, Mikagami and I have been playing.  It's a f2p converted from a Korean MMO and they seem to have done a pretty good job of converting it to western design.  They took what was a seriously grindy game and inverted xp so that quests provide plenty and you don't need to grind.  This could change eventually, but so far (about level 30 of 45) I'm ahead of the xp curve just by questing.  They also stripped out the p2w aspects and made sure it's pretty much all cosmetic and convenience. 

Inventory space is about the only frustrating part if you are truly f2p, but the ability to easily get to bank and shops and back help alleviate it.  Also free respecs anywhere anytime other than combat helps a lot.

The combat feels pretty amazing to me

We are on the Old Man Cho server.  Keep in mind that for launch they occasionally lock a server to new players to keep people spreading out, but that if you see the server locked it will be unlocked within 6 hours since that's the current rotation
65  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: January 08, 2016, 08:07:13 PM
haven't seen any weapon changes in effect yet
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: January 05, 2016, 06:21:35 PM
Ripper is ridiculous and is typically always available.  I love it and find it very effective.  Also Rejack was recently buffed and went from trash to at least usable.

This is on sale right now for Xbox Gold members, not sure of the discount since I already own it and it won't show me.  Haven't played much at all since I don't want or enjoy playing alone.  Love what I have played so far though, think it's criminally underrated around here.
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: December 29, 2015, 02:42:42 PM
It's my favorite, basically all  my complaints about it are things that have always been an issue with CoD.  (like head glitching and side strafe/backwards movement speed)

btw, here's 'official' call outs for map spots so we can stop calling locations 'that place with the thing'

71  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: December 29, 2015, 12:55:43 AM
Heck of a few days.  Finished Dark Matter camo, only two Hero armor left, got Master Killer calling card and 4 other Master cards, and hit Master Prestige. 
72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: December 23, 2015, 12:52:01 PM
I love open PvP, but it definitely needs some restrictions and penalties otherwise it becomes a 'why not shoot everyone?'
73  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Star Wars Episode VII Director Revealed on: December 19, 2015, 01:33:40 PM
Spoiler for Hiden:
I think Finn almost has to be to last as long as he did against Ren, even if Ren didn't have much training with the blade AND was severely wounded, you'd think he'd kill a non-force using lightsaber user easily.  Same with the fight versus the CQB trooper earlier
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: December 17, 2015, 09:07:44 PM
I'm looking forward to more of this
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] Heroes of the Storm on: December 12, 2015, 09:39:30 PM
https://battle.net/recruit/VGHRBSXXXD is my recruit link

I know most of my friends who would play this already are, since I invited people when I started. However Blizzard in their infinite wisdom decided to not be retroactive with the rewards for inviting people and so we are at this. Feel free to create a new account (a Smurf account) and play to level 10 and I can do the same for you. I really want the mount you get for recruiting 4 friends to level 10 and it really blows that I've already invited well over that but whatever.
76  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: iPhone/iTouch app and game thread on: December 12, 2015, 02:29:44 AM
Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes has it's grip on me.  Turn based combat with a F2P system like Future Fight.

Magic the Gathering: Puzzle Quest also seems quite fun.

Warhammer 40k: Freeblade is a nice on rails RPG shooter.
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1] The Division (Tom Clancy) on: December 10, 2015, 04:38:51 PM
I would be playing but for some idiotic reason they decided only physical preorders can play and not digital ones and I have no desire to buy anything physical for xbox.

But I see how it is, you'll play a game like this, but not CoD, Battlefront or even Rainbow Six with us. pfft   crybaby
78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PS4/XB1]Rainbow 6: Siege on: December 09, 2015, 01:17:29 PM
I really think the default settings are causing some of the problems on console, they have a very odd deadzone setting that was causing jumpy aim.  Thankfully it's fully adjustable
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: December 08, 2015, 12:33:24 PM
W/L is largely a part of who you play with.  If you play with competent friends you will win far more often than not in any game mode. 

I am always amused by SPM vs K/D though, since a high K/D but low SPM tends to mean a camper who gets few kills per match but rarely dies.  I usually lead in kills, but also in deaths.   icon_lol

Kill Confirmed is my highest SPM, but I tend to play more TDM for the simple reason that I don't have to watch and scream at wtf my teammates are doing while we lose.  In TDM I usually don't know how awful they are doing until it's all mercifully over.  crybaby
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: December 07, 2015, 03:02:41 PM
I gave up on K/D many years ago, wish the game had a different system that included SPM and KDA.  Either way camo challenges and now specialist challenges kill my k/d anyway.  Double kills after rejack?  Let me know your K/D when you finish all Rejack related challenges without boosting...  ninja
