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 went digital guardian last night and I'm preloaded

yeah, those nemesis seems to hit you when you're fighting elites & rares or just after bosses.  I've beat one once, but the others have just demolished me.  Need to up my resistance and would be nice to get neck that ignores arcane damage and heals you at the same time.. Kadlah still hasn't given me that neck for my console crusader

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.


YESSSSSSS...   not yet available...  Thanks for the heads up Hark

Regarding adventure mode and bounties, do I need to complete all 5 bounties in an act during the same play session to get a cache?  I give it a try last night and completed 2 bounties, but needed to shut down and do something else.  When I started up again later that night those 2 completed bounties were gone. 

You need to complete all five if you're on the XB1 you should be able to switch to another app and come back to it in later as I've done this several times.  I'm not sure if you but the XB1 to sleep if it will work

So they list the active effects of the various Law Chants, but don't show the passive.  Are the passive effects ingame or am I missing something?

A good way to judge your gear/difficulty is if you can kill the treasure goblins before they port.

Hit 70 tonight with my demon hunter (a class I barely touched on PC), which has been awesomely fun with a controller (especially having dodge controls). Right now I'm deciding what difficulty to continue at - I'm pretty much pouring through enemies at expert, and while master has twice the XP/gold, it's definitely slowing me down more than halfway. I'm only concerned about all the sweet, sweet drops I must be missing out on at lower difficulty.

My advice go to Master and once that becomes easy move Torment.  Torment is where the sweet spot is for me.  Had tons of fun farming with Forge on the PC.  He has one nasty Crusader specced in Fire Damage.  Has a 2h Sword that  called a Demon as a pet..  actually had a chain between him and the demon


Still want that sword

Thank you.

Oopps my bad..  Been playing on Master and was jumped by a Nemsis from one of my other friends game.   Really need to slot more resist gems.   Also need my neck with ignore Arcane and actually get healed by it, but I see Kadlah is just as stingy in the Console version as the PC


Cool things about Nemsis is the shade of the defeated Characters travel with them ,,, LOL

Rittchard, how did that work?  Did a legendary drop for you in-game and a duplicate was auto-sent to me?  Did the game notify you that it was sent?  Anyway, thanks!

It happened really fast, I just saw a note that a gift was sent to Torfish.  I don't know if it was a duplicate or not, but I was playing a Witch Doctor as well so maybe....

If this is what happened, you never sent that legendary. The game doesn't auto-send them. When you find a gift legendary, the game auto-assigns it to someone on your friends list that you have no control over, but you have to manually send the item by going to your inventory and clicking it.

This..  I just sent a gift to someone on my friends list last night

DLNA support off the USB stick was added as well

Wait, are you saying you imported your PC character into the game?  I didn't think that was possible.

No, I recreated my Crusader.   Actually trying out different build on the console...  Some of the skills and affixes on the PC I've never used are quite viable for me on the console.  Steed Charge is freaking amazing on the console, but I rarely used on the PC due to poor steering control

Quote from: IGN
Z Nation, from Sharknado production company The Asylum, joins the zombie frenzy. Executive producer Karl Schaefer states that despite the familiar topic the material will be fresh and that "Z Nation will take viewers where no zombie has gone before."

The ensemble drama will take place three years after a zombie virus has swept through the United States. "A team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood." They don't state how the heroes also survived the virus, but they were probably out of the country when it happened.

What on earth is this argument supposed to prove? Sony didn't do this. Microsoft did. We aren't comparing them. Don't start a console war where there isn't one.

Really? Anytime anyone has tried to defend MS in this thread they've been brow beaten down.   Most are people who clearly shown they are in Sony's camp.

Honestly, I don't see the MS bias on Polygon and they've taken MS to task on several occasions, what I find funny is anytime anyone takes Sony to task the same people come to their defense.   Seriously, the Sony can't do no wrong vibe I get on this board is starting to become nauseating

Again, the exclusive deal for Tomb Raider is a crappy deal, but I starting to think if Sony had pulled the move people wouldn't be so upset as they are now.  We will never know the truth about how initiate this particular deal.

Rumor seems to be that Square Enix has no desire to go up against Uncharted next holiday season, so they offered MS a deal.

That doesn't even deserve to be called a rumor. It's nothing but blind speculation by people (NeoGAFers) who have no idea what they're talking about. The idea that Tomb Raider and Uncharted 4 would actually compete against each other merely by being released within the same season makes little sense.

This is my biggest issue with NeoGAF: You've got a small group of people there who are really smart and really know what they're talking about, and then you've got a whole bunch of "me too's" who want to play with the big boys but don't realize that they can't. Both groups end up lumped together in one huge heap, making it really hard for casual observers to tell the difference.

I wasn't getting that from NeoGaf...  smile   I tend to stay away from there cause its hard to find the wheat amongst the chaff

You'd think after their XBox One launch with all the bad publicity they caused themselves, they would stay far far away from creating more.  I mean they just earned a lot of goodwill back lately, and now, in my eyes, they are back where they started

I think they underestimated how transparent their move would be to the public in today's age of information.  Their hope was probably that we'd all say "Oh wow!  The XB1 gets all the best games first!  I love XB1!" instead of "Oh wow!  MS paid a lot of money to screw over everyone else!  I hate MS!"

Going back over stuff it's apparent MS only claimed exclusive for holiday 2015.  It wasn't until the Crystal Dynamic Lead Programmer posted his letter to Tumblr basically stating it was exclusive to xbox and PC and PS4 would have to settle for Temple of Osiris that things became bat shit crazy

Rumor seems to be that Square Enix has no desire to go up against Uncharted next holiday season, so they offered MS a deal.  While it's crappy I can't blame MS if this is true

The new role-playing game is influenced by old-school pen-and-paper games, Hickman explained. Shadow Realms will feature online and dynamic four-player co-op against a single playable enemy who controls "every aspect of the game."


Sounds like a mix of Dungeon Keeper, Fable Legends and Evolve

If this comes to console I'm sure Sony and MS will be throwing money at them to make it a console exclusive...

So for those pissed at the Tomb Raider exclusivity deal, why wasn't there the same outrage at Bloodborne being exclusive for Sony?  I bought the Dark Souls games on PC and would have loved to get the next game in the "series" on there as well.

My understanding is the Bloodborne was contracted and paid for by Sony, so essentially it's their IP.   I think that's the issue.  While I thing Square Enix screwed up with this deal I wonder if Sony had brought exclusive rights (timed or not) would there be so much venom

Sadly, I don't think this is the end of Sony or MS buying exclusive games...  Just wish MS would follow Sony's lead and make more first party IPs


They own the FASA IPs and a new Mechwarrior game would kick all kinds of ass
