Have to go eat dinner and watch a movie with the gf, I'll see what I can do afterwards.  I still think your numbers are WAY off though, 750k should be able to sneeze and be done with T2 and could likely do T4-5 quickly enough as long as your toughness is also ok.

Tried once, died more than I usually did.  Haven't played Wiz in a long while and not sure on these new changes.  Took me about 22 minutes even with several deaths and without the ability that used to make it feel 'easy'.  (arcane torrent used to debuff them 30% to arcane damage, was removed in latest patch I guess)

Video of 22 min attempt

I have no doubts that with minor tweaks in my passives I could make this down to the 15 minute range once I've re-learned how to play a wiz.  I typically play monk and crusader.  On Torment 1 I beat the 15 minute time.
43  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 07, 2014, 05:13:08 PM
Because maybe he wants it on both?  Then you can play it with people who only have a 360 AND with people who have it on the XB1.  In my case I would much rather buy the 360 version, but have already ordered the XB1.  If I could buy the digital 360 version I can download it on my living room 360, then on my game room 360 and my gf can play on the one I downloaded on first while I play with her on the other one.  Also she can play on the 360 while I play on the XB1 with my friends.

It makes perfect sense, you just aren't seeing it.
44  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2014, 05:07:56 PM
I'm talking single player, and I can do rifts in under 15 minutes easily on that character as well.  Not sure what the disconnect is.
45  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2014, 01:13:52 PM
My Wiz is at 216k dps and does Torment 2 at a fine pace imo, breezes through T1

my previous reference is to my seasonal crusader
46  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: September 07, 2014, 12:30:20 PM
These types of comments confuse me since I was doing T3 at 350k and now that I'm nearing 450k T4 is pretty easy.

I would be excited for this if I didn't just have plenty else to play.

A few key points and you should be fine

Be courteous to others, ignore most of what they say, no personal info, trust nobody, then reiterate ignoring people and that while it doesn't matter if they insult you, just ignore them.

I was the one 'training' my nephew on internet gaming and he was jumping in the deep end on xbox live cod at the time.  Worked out fine and he learned early to just laugh and ignore the trolls without joining in.  He was 10-11 at the time though, so a bit older.  He also grew up in a household with freely spoken curse words by his mom so I wasn't worried about exposure to language, just his response to it.

I think as long as you are able to shape the experience you'll be fine, just don't worry too much since the internet is the internet.  Kids these days will grow up with a different overall exposure to some things as a result anyway

I've become so spoiled with not swapping disks that it more than makes up for lack of resale for me.  I also realized just how little I would play most steam titles if there was a physical swap needed.

Having 2 games on disk and the rest digital showed me that simply because it took more effort, i only played the digital and the game in the drive.  silly, but true.
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 28, 2014, 10:08:59 PM
It's almost all the same stuff, and you save $10.  You won't need the metal case since you won't have a disk to worry about inserting.

The online one has the expansions too, no need for the physical one.

edit: only in-game stuff you will be missing is the paint job on the sparrow (which you can get next year anyway)  otherwise the maps and books and metal case.  The digital guardian edition is identical to this and $90 instead of $100

I tried all the buttons (also on a 360 controller).  Maybe only that scene is unskippable, but since it was the first one it struck a chord in me,

So what are the ramifications of this?  Does Amazon now own Harkonis?  Can I use my Amazon Prime membership to demand naked Harkonis videos?

you can always just donate straight to me for my stream and demand naked videos (you won't get them btw, but you are free to demand them if you pay Tongue )

thanks for the code, not buying this one.

Care to elaborate?  What didn't you like about it?  How much or what parts did you play? 

I like the idea of the huge open world to drive around in with tons of activities and missions, so I'll likely give it a try.  I wasn't a huge fan of the handling for some of the cars in the previous beta, but others felt fine once I got used to them.  I'm hoping these early betas are giving them enough feedback to polish things that people complain about consistently.

honestly I wasn't able to play long enough to really see much of the game.  After my first graphic hiccup got me killed (slight lag, then recovered and I went straight off road and flipped) I thought no big deal, it happens I'll just retry.  I click retry and it starts over at the cutscene and WON'T LET ME SKIP IT.  Every time I want to retry, I have to watch 10-15 seconds of cutscene followed by 3-5 seconds of 'pre-race racing' that I am not controlling.  That got old sooooo fast I just turned it off.  Unskippable cutscenes, especially at a check point and repeatable is an automatic no-go for me.  Takes an incredible game for me to look past that and this didn't have a chance to convince me before this happened.
66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 27, 2014, 10:14:57 PM
Some people were able to buy it in the short time it was available.  MS did finally acknowledge that it will indeed be up for preorder and preloading soon and that it was a mistake that it was available earlier.
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 27, 2014, 05:10:26 PM
Now it's been removed.  I can still see it since I pinned the bundle before they nuked it.  Hopefully it's just a temp removal and not like their 100% reversal of preloading like on Titanfall
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 27, 2014, 04:32:14 PM
nobody tell ATB that preordering digitally (and preloading) is going live any minute and that Destiny and the CE Destiny are already showing in the XB1 store online, both web and consoles.

I still can't figure out why you are excited for Destiny, you'll just shelve it, then come back and play when everyone else is done so you can share your stats with an empty thread  ninja

78  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: August 22, 2014, 01:33:43 AM
I would probably prefer yaw on the stick and the thrusters on other (hand or pedals or both).  Currently though I have just a stick so thrusters are on the hat.

TrackIR should be here on the 28th

edit: just noticed you mention the analog thumb stick.  Do the thrusters have analog control?  I thought they were on or off by design.  If so I would like that a lot.
