X-Men: Days of Future Past' Has a Clip After 'Amazing Spider-Man 2

Quote
We've confirmed with Sony Pictures that this X-Men: Days of Future Past coda will be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in both the United States and the United Kingdom, but it's not clear if it will play in other international territories as well. The scene will be an action sequence following Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Havok (Lucas Till) and Toad (Evan Jonigkeit) taking on William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men. We're not sure why this is the scene chosen to hype the film, or why Fox and Sony have decided to team-up like this, but I guess it's cool?

If anything, maybe this is a sign of potential future collaboration that will allow Marvel's comic book characters to crossover into other studio's Marvel franchises eventually. After all, we know that Marvel and Sony tried to collaborate on an easter egg that would have seen the new Oscorp tower in the Manhattan skyline in The Avengers, but scheduling of when the visual effects needed to be done didn't work out. It would be cool if the new Stark Tower (or Avengers Tower now?) popped up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but we don't know if that's even possible. Anyway, make sure you stay after the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when it hits theaters May 2nd if you want to see this X-Men: Days of Future Past teaser clip.

Also, helps that Marvel/Disney has been eating Sony/Fox lunch with thier string of movies.

New Hot Fixes to Loot Drops

Quote from: Blizzard
The Bad!
Unique monsters now drop less items.
*Uniques were dropping far more loot than their difficulty would warrant.

Chest spawns have been thinned out across all acts of the game.
*Ideally chests become less common and something that players canít flip games to farm. It is our goal to make them feel exciting and rewarding when you find them.

The Good!
The bonus legendary drop rate for rifts is being increased from 25% to 100%!
*This means that while in a rift your chance to find a legendary item from monsters, chests, elites, and everything else is double what it is outside of rifts. No this does not mean opening bounty bags in rifts is the new hotness. ;P

Kadalaís legendary drop rate has been significantly increased.
*Blood Shards are meant to be a compelling element of rift rewards and something players are excited to get.

Loot is an incredibly important aspect of Diablo games and we will continue to keep a very close eye on it. If more problems arise we will continue striving to address them. It isnít our goal to take loot away from people, we just want to make sure they are having as much fun as possible while finding it and these changes all support that goal.

Good hunting and link the loot!


Some good changes there and I guess I can start using my Blood Shards with Kadala now

So from a GT perspective, is this game a failure?  I don't want to discuss sales numbers whatever they may be.

I've asked every gamer I know who bought this and they are legit done with it less than a month after release.

Thoughts?

I don't think so. Doesn't take long to find a match and with Respawn team balancing I am finding the game a heck of a lot less frustrating,

This skill no longer erroneously scales with monster difficulty and provides 6102 Thorns @ level 70.

Well that didn't take long.  Was rather awesome watching Rares and Elites crit themselves to death.

I'll try to stay out of this one (I've already made my view clear on DX12), but I'll say this: For Brad's sake, I hope he was either misquoted or taken out of context.

If Brad made console games I would give some credence to that statement, but I seriously doubt his claims.

Digital Foundry quick write up on performance of the 360 version. Overall pretty impressive job by Bluepoint

Performance analysis: Titanfall on Xbox 360

Yep, again showing why there was a complete media blackout on the 360 version along with the delay. It was too good and MS was probably worried it would reflect poorly on the XB1, if launched at the same time. Smart business move, but not really fair to the consumer.

Agreed, smart business move, but very poor form

After reading some spoilers about how the new Captain America movie will impact Agents of SHIELD, it looks like we're in for every more of a "game-change" than we thought.

The show lost me with the plodding first half.   Not sure I can jump back in..

Too much Sky in the beginning for me

Good feature nonetheless

Is anyone still playing this?  I just got home from business related travel and I've got a few days off with the wife out of the house.  Every time I log on, I don't see anyone playing this.  Don't tell me I've missed out on the entire Titanfall window!

what window.. I've played mostly solo.. Only grouped up a few times with others since official launch

thanks for the SAO recommendation.  Almost done with the series and it definitely pays off.  I could do with less of the young women objectification, but it is certainly a very deep series once you get past that

Btw, do the resistance from Diamonds stack?   I haven't run the numbers since that isn't my thing, but I'm curious  to know


Yes, all benefits from gems stack.  Diamonds are basically the all-purpose anti-elite gems, granting increasing resistances to their elemental affixes and maxing out the damage you deal in return.  At the higher difficulties, they're absolutely invaluable for tweaking up your Toughness!

-Autistic Angel

Thanks as I've begun stacking them because of Elites/Rares

You can get a stack of them for finishing a Nephalem Rift.

Yeah, ended up getting some that way last night.  I was level 65 and joined a group doing Torment 1 rifts and I think we did 4 of them and I got to level 70 and had a nice chunk of them.  They were in their mid-100s Paragon levels and I was barely damaging monsters and could die very easily.  Not sure if paragon levels come into play when the monsters are generated, but I was playing Torment 1 before Reaper came out and able to play just fine, but now it's too tough for me.  Will have to either find groups that are as patient or play on lower difficulties until I get geared up again.

Grue remember monster scale up based on group size and gear levels, so you were probably outleveled based on these criteria.  You might have had a easier time if you tried Torment lvl 1 solo.  

Just a thought

I had a chance to play the game in two different beta sessions and didn't like it.  That being said, I know how long you've been waiting for an MMO to come along and not disappoint you, Arclight.  I really do hope you love it.  Crossing my fingers for you, man.
