I love how ATB tries to mask his personal prejudices as sincere curiosity.  It's like a racist asking someone why Asians are such horrible drivers.

Who doesn't know that!?!

I was rather shocked by how bland Destiny turned out to be.  I knew it wasn't a full SP game but I expected something better than just re-running the same patrol missions in the hope of getting better loot, just to get better loot so I can re-run the same patrol missions to get better loot, etc. 

It sure it pretty though. 
This sums it up pretty well.  Pretty/bland

My lightbulb moment came after spending an hour in front of the loot cave.  I played for an hour, got a few blues and more greens, and went from level 20 to level 20 with ~10  more light points .  I looked back and thought what I could be playing instead that I would actually enjoy and everything was more enticing. 

Just traded it today. Same exact feeling about it. Every time I was playing it, it felt like I should be playing or doing something else. Same for watchdogs. Just not very good games. I also vote for Diablo ps4. I've pkayed this on Mac and 360 and love it EVEN more on ps4. The game is phenomenal. I just started dragon age on ps4. Wow. Seriously as much as people like to bitch about the lack of games, I enjoyed a ton this year. Last of us, tomb raider, gta5, cod aw and so on. Kept me busy.

They might play smooth, but the issue is when you have someone lined up center mass in your sights, pull the trigger, don't kill him, and die after. 

Or die when someone melees you after they've run past you.

That's where the server and lag issues pop up.

I really haven't seen much of that. Cross my fingers.

Does that mean everyone is equally suffering from the crazy lag issues? Last night was the worst I've seen in a long while. I recorded some clips and replayed them today as saw such a great disparity ingame versus kill cam

My experience so far is that, the games play is smooth but if you look at the ping, they read horribly. Even the though the game seems to run really smooth. Actually enjoying my time with COD again.

just as an fyi, there have to be some dedicated servers going on because I've seen all 12 players have bad ping numerous times.  This can't happen in the old system since one person is the host.  I think the problems are more related to being thrown to distant servers and individual player lag + lag compensation instead.

I connected to a french host yesterday...at least i think so. Everyone speaking in french was kind of a give away i think..also they spent the whole game running away.

I laughed

Same.

Played about an hour or so of the sp and so far it's pretty neat. Lots of gadgets being thrown at you and it can be pretty overwhelming.

Did 3 or 4 mp matches and I really have no idea what I'm doing with anything.  I'm randomly turning on gadgets and when I mean to be throwing nades and having shields pop out of my arm when i mean to be meleeing.

It feels really tight so far and no issues with servers.  Got a 12 kill streak and used the UAV, remote turret and the Vulcan drone.  The turret was pretty spray and pray and seemed to take a lot of hits to kill a guy.  The Vulcan overheated  quickly and as a result of these limitations at least these two killstreaks seemed to be pretty balanced the one time I got to use them.  Seems like knife kills are just as op as always

Escaped with a 1.86 KD over this handful of matches.

Overall first blush impressions are quite good.

I feel pretty similar about this game so far. Liking it a lot.

To bitch, since it wouldn't be me if I didn't, I don't like that there isn't an an order status page. I mean it's only been one business day since I ordered it, so I have quite a while to wait, but it would be neat to know where in the process the build is. They don't offer much in a website though, I was looking around on it last night and they were recommending Norton Anti-Virus 2010 in their FAQ section. Its a good thing they have a good reputation, off of website alone, I wouldn't be so trusting.
Any questions, call them. They went above and beyond for me. Numerous times.

There's gonna be plenty of other games this fall, Assassins Creed, Far Cry, Dragon Age, Shadow of Mordor, Lords of the Fallen, The Evil Within, etc.

I bought it! Ha! Day one nonetheless! Ps4 is setup and rolling. My wife was sweet and grabbed on the way home for me. Gots to love that.

I don't use sleep mode. Ever.

You're losing out on some of the more handy features of the PS4, then. Mine downloads patches whenever it feels like it, and I routinely purchase new games from my web browser (often while at work, since that's when the store updates), which makes the PS4 turn itself on and make sure they're downloaded by the time I get home. It also allows my Vita to turn on and off the PS4 if I decide to use Remote Play.

I know. Maybe I'll start checking it out once this is resolved.

Ditto. I pretty much *only* use sleep mode on my PS4. It's only ever fully powered down if I am moving it.

Your post convinced me.  Tongue

It's been a dream to get a Falcon NW since Rich got one on Gone Gold over a decade ago. I even put Gone Gold under the "How did you hear about us?" section.

I should be getting the thing just before finals, some planning that was.

You'll be really happy. Their tech support is friggin phenomenal. Seriously. Best of luck! Enjoy the shit out of that rig.

Should I treat it just like a PC backup UPS?

Oh, that kind of backup. Yes. I've got a small APC UPS supporting all that (receiver included) and it works just fine. However, I'm not looking for any kind of extended "play during the outage" coverage, more like enough time to calmly wind things down and shut'er down.

Same here. Whatcha using? Also, how that damn joules conversion work again? It's been years since I've bought a new ups. I'll want a ps4, 47" lg led and a , I believe a 500 watt receiver on it. Any help is welcomed and appreciated. I think I am finally setting up my living room 5 weeks later after the move... The electrical work seems to mostly be done in the house and completely done in that room so I wanna play!
22  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Backup on living room entertainment center? on: October 30, 2014, 05:32:04 AM
 Long story short...I am looking into using a backup on my, as noted above , living room entertainment center. I've used one on my pc/Mac for years but want to add one to this setup. I'll only hookup the tv and ps4 on it. The receiver would take too much power. So, does anyone have any experience with this? Should I treat it just like a PC backup UPS? Note what draw I need to satisfy? And go forth?🎃
23  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Money pit so it seems. on: October 29, 2014, 04:01:29 AM
So, the electrical should be mostly, if not completley, done tomorrow. If anything I might run a few new circuits off the new box for a few key areas. Might not be necessary after I find out everything tomorrow. Though, really hoping that's the case so I can hook up my ps4 then my Mac! And for other more adult like reasons... We are going after the money from the seller bc it was in the contract that "some of this" should have been done. I won't bore anyone with the details, but "most of it" should have been done, it turns out. Things might be looking up. I hope.

That's been what Ive been thinking. I think I'll scrap this for whatever it's worth. Not enough time in the day to waste it doing the same thing over and over again, then up charge me for even more of the same..

There are many games where people enjoy doing the same thing over and over again. Instead of trying to figure out if you'll enjoy Destiny, why not just play it for as long as you find you're having fun, then stop playing when you're no longer enjoying it?

That's pretty much what I decided. I'll come back for the DLC, but I'm off the grind.  The game is tons of fun especially in a group, but the repetition can be taxing

I guess I'll leave it up to if my friends still want to play it or if I can find peeps to play with.

I bought destiny. I moved 6 days later. Only played for 2 or 3 light gaming session days. Should I just ignore it and sell it off after just reading bitchings and moaning about it. All were a concern. No story. Super repetitive. But yet I enjoyed the beta. Anyone wanna play in the next 2 weeks when I get my whole house rewired? Ha! Or should I ditch it or play it?

Sorry to hear about all these issues going on right now. I hope you get a good run of luck soon.

Thanks man. Probably 300lb or so. Not a huge buck but not a baby either. Surprisingly not much damage. It shot straight out when I hit the brakes. So thankfully it didn't fly up over on the hood. It died instantly at least. I feel pretty shitty about killing a animal though.  icon_frown

I feel horribly shitty about killing a animal then on top of it having to fix my car. It could have been SO much worse, but still unpleasant at a bad time.

Wiring is on our maybe-eventually-someday list. They told us when we bought the house 25 years ago that it needed to be updated. We have an old-school fuse box with some knob & tube wiring still in place. The house is 102 years old.

Five years of un- and underemployment set us back a long way on home maintenance as we cannibalized all of our short-term savings and most of our home equity line. Finally bought a new $8,000 roof last week -- I can take the bucket out of my office, hooray! Now saving aggressively for a paint job next year because the house looks like hell. After that, we can start to think about some of the cosmetic improvements that we've wanted for years, maybe even a kitchen or bathroom makeover. My wife is a year and a half away from the magical age of 59-1/2 when she can access a long-stagnant Roth that's got home improvements written all over it.

Wiring? Yeah, wiring comes sometime after that unless a renovator simply can't work with what we have.
