Enchanting has been a hit with me. I was able to enchant a level 70 2 handed 2500 dps axe down 25 levels so that my crusader could weild it slywink and melt enemies.

Loot that drops is all yours. Each player gets their own drops and you can't see theirs either.
Beat the game last night on Tor1 - took 2 tries to get it done. Talk about tough ass battle.

Adventure mode is fun and I got some great upgrades over the expansion - talk about weird though: replacing legendaries with yellows smile took me a while to get over the mindset that the yellows were in fact better than my oranges.

Overall, at it's core the game is fun, but at the same time I feel a little cheated considering the narrow scope of their game design.

I haven't played anything but the beta, but keep in mind that this is the first try at this.  Took COD 4 times to get it just right and in my opinion it took Gears 3 tries (though 1 was really fun).

Wait a second - are you saying that you like Gears? We're gonna need to see some proof of that  eek icon_lol

In my 25 plus years of gaming I have never seen a price increase. Ridiculous - and in those years currency has always fluctuated.
Fuck you sony.  finger

Price increase? Yup - only here in Canada.

Don't do it. Don't empower her anymore than she already is.
You cant fix stupid.

IF you decide to move ahead let her boss know what you plan to discuss and provide a copy of the discussion points. That way you're covered if she tries to claim that you said different.

But again - don't do it. Focus on what you already do well and keep a copy of all communications.

Hmmmmm. Despite doing both updates I suffered from the crackle last night. Really annoying.
I'll see if I can re apply the update

MajorNelson tweeted today that if you hear cracklin to update your controller. There were 2 updates 1 from system update and the other from the chat adapter.

Okay thanks for the clarification - still didn't hear a sound smile unless there was just too much noise going on at the time.

Yes from what I see now there are 3 skins:
The one from the beta - with chain gun
Then 2 more that I have access to - 1 with the rocket launcher has the tiny arms and legs. The other has the 40mm cannon and looks like the atlas I believe.

Also unlocked the rail gun for the Titan last night - takes a while to power up but is pretty powerful. Someone hit me with it while I was standing still as it turned me into red mist right quick!

It's also nice to see a whole set of new maps. My favourite so far looks like something out of the terminator movies - looks like a futuristic manufacturing facility. It also has these hiige brontosaurus like dinos in the background just walking along.

Glad I got it early as I'm going skiing for 4 days starting tomorrow so I'd miss the launch.
See y'all Thursday night.

So far the maps are great could've sworn there was a level with bridges for the titans to move around on. More burn cards available. Spider sense is terrible - supposed to let you hear enemy soldiers - doesn't frown

Once again - suppressed weapons rule.

New maps are great. Well designed and play really well.

New Titan skins too! Super skinny one looks hilarious - like it walks on toothpicks.

Got my copy. 840mb update. Just installed and watched the into - impressions soon.

Had my first profitable session last night post patch with 2 legendary and one set items all if which I can actually use on my barb. Managed to increase my dps by 14k because of them.
Was feeling meh post patch - granted I did get 2 legendaries earlier This week week but like before they were useless to my character. Its good to get back into some mindless point and click again.

I was hoping for a big boss battle at the end. Nope. Just waves of one type of enemy. It did feel like they lost thei vigor at the end and just 'mailed it in'.

Too funny. I did the same thing a few weeks back. I love everything from id so whe Rage was announced I was stoked.
Played for close to 1/2 the game but got bored I guess and never went back.

Anyhoo - re bought for like $9 and played it through.
Graphics are great, loved the dodge mechanic from the baddies.
Shotgun was good yes - Ak not so much unless you have the super rare rounds.

I did forget just how much Fedex gameplay there was but it was ok.

Glad I replayed.

Battery life indicator is hit or miss for me. Sometimes I see it next to the time in the lower right hand corner and soetimes I see neither.

EDIT. Ok figured out that you need to hit the guide button to display the batt life.  Would it kill MS to provide instructions?

The headset mods work. Guy I play with also soldered his existing headset wires to 2.5mm female adapter and it works flawlessly.

Im sending mine down to him for his expertise.

There are framerate issues on one map in the dlc. That one with the nuke in the middle? Once the truck blows the framerates are horrid on 3/4 of the map. Ridiculous.
Talking xbone only.

Any word on the new patch? I played on the xbone this weekend and didn't have any issues. But I heard today that this latest patch 'breaks' the game? Please tell me my source is wrongo!

I told you to stop letting him cheat with that modded controller, it was a gateway peripheral

oh great next you're going to tell me that his marijuana use is also a 'gateway'  ninja

oh ya - I meant to tell you that the special controller works in ghosts. atleast that's what I've heard anyway......
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: November 16, 2013, 12:28:24 AM
360 version of ghosts already hacked. my son ended up in a hacked lobby last night and now he is lvl 60 (not sure about prestige) and he has 748 tokens. he gets about 30 tokens per game now so I guess his cod profile is also now 'infected' 
lame.

Very sad to hear that Hark  crybaby I was really really hoping this time around it would be different.

Maps are certainly larger this time around FYI. Not as big as Halo maps mind you  - just bigger than we've been used to in COD titles thus far.

I really hope that xbone version has dedicated servers - I grow tired of losing 1v1s and reliving the Han Solo debate.

I believe all versions of the game are getting dedicated servers this time out.

Hmmm. Than I am way way way worse than I ever thought. I am still seeing deaths when I am already around the corner etc etc.

Good point Ceekay. I'll try that next time.

All in all it looks and plays the same.
Field orders are a nice addition.
Oracle is also neat - being able to see through walls is something I've missed since the heartbeats sensor went bye bye.
33  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3/PC/Wii U/PS4/XB1]Call of Duty:Ghosts on: November 02, 2013, 09:42:34 PM
My first negative point - quick scoping is in this title again frown
I admit wholeheartedly that I've not followed any news on this title but I was hoping that it was killed.

I've seen my son lose many many 1v1 battles when turning corners and or drawing first.
That also makes me sad - connection based stats blow!

Graphics on the 360 look good. It does have that whiteish washed out look on some maps - like too much lingering smoke effect?

Odin is neat.

I wish they had separated out the options.  I turned off the motion thing when iOS 7 came out because I didn't want the device using up battery to detect I was moving my iPad to make the parallax effect thing move, but I actually like the transitions.  Now those transitions are gone because I turned it off for the other reason.

agreed % 110. I also liked the 'fly in effect' 
to get it back:
settings / general / accessibility / reduce motion. turn it off if you want the icon animation.

I've seen way more TV advertising for the PS4 than I have for the Xbox. I actually can't even say that I've seen an Xbox One Commercial. Whereas the PS4 has the T Bell commercial and that "It's a Great Day" commercial.

Agreed %110. The first and only Xbone question I saw was last night during the walking dead - it was for Dead Rising.

As for me - I'm leaning towards PS4 now - price point is a big one for me. However I know that I'll end up with both systems sooner rather than later....

The writing and characters just aren't doing it for me. I also have a tough time de-coupling the fact that they could just call on the real super heroes for help......

The BlackList is my new fav show.

While not all 13 songs on the album are a total winner IMHO I do enjoy listening to the vast vast majority of them.
