Ritt invaded my game yesterday just as I killed a miniboss and a bunch of good loot dropped.  As I mentioned to him, I haven't played multiplayer Diablo since I got killed in town in Diablo 1 and someone stole all my stuff. 

How do loot drops work now?  Is the equipment I see drop just mine to grab, or do we need to roll need before greed or some such before anyone picks anything up?

I'm still traumatized by the time I got taken on one of my first WoW dungeons escorted by friends way higher level than me (Razorfen Kraul?) and I clumsily looted a bind on pickup item which apparently was the whole reason my friends were even trying the dungeon.   icon_frown

Any loot drop you see is yours and you can only trade with people involved in that particular play session.  You will see a timer on the loot and the names of the people you are eligible to trade with in the items tooltip

If it brings the price down to a consumer level I am for it.   I wasn't going to buy into the VR tech unless it was affordable and if this allows Occulus to bring it down to an affordable level than I am for it.

It's like Google Glass once I received my invite I just don't see the value in spending 1600.00 on something that at this point is more novelty than function.


I'm still in a wait and see mode for this

Today I had the day off and while my plan was to do stuff around the house at lunch I popped on this new Anime show Sword Star Online which appeared over the weekend too. 30 minute shows are perfect for lunch so thought I'd check it out. And then the rest of the day was gone as I binge watched a bunch of episodes. It's a totally geeky show but I was loving it - and if you've played MMOs with any regularity you would probably get a kick out of it too.

How's this compare to Log Horizon?  Which is another another anime about people getting stuck in an MMO world.

I'm not sure. I haven't seen that one.

But still loving Sword ART Online. I popped on an episode before heading to bed and my wife came in to see what I was watching. Next thing you know we've watched four episodes in a row and its Midnight.

Just stuck it onto my Netflix queue

Hyper Light Drifter, which is coming to everything now that it finally got announced for XB1 as well, I think is one to watch.

I use so many voice commands I don't think I could go back to it being unplugged. 

I avoid voice commands whenever possible but I don't know of a way to make the party screen go away without one. For that reason alone, Kinect becomes a must.

Switching to the party screen and hitting B doesn't work?

I don't know, at this point Titanfall is all but defining Xbox One.  Unless they have some staggering exclusives lined up that they are completely confident will be able to replace TF, it may be extremely valuable to Microsoft to pay through the nose.  "When you think of Titanfall, you think of Xbox One" may be enough.

They've got plenty of exclusives that can replace TF. Halo 5, Gears of War 4 - those two alone will have Xbox fans lining up in droves.

This is a good point, imo.  I thought they would blank check TF to keep it exclusive, but now I think they just needed some filler before their staple franchises started rolling out.  Isn't Halo 5 coming out either this holiday or next?

It would cost them to much money to blank check it.   Possibly do what Sony does with Ubisoft and pay for exclusive content for the XB1

I'm very competent in a Orge and I usually come out on top in one v. one fights unless my opponent has room to maneuver.  Never chase a Stryder or Atlas into open ground  in a Orge unless you have a partner,  Orge are best in confine areas

The Orge shield core ability has saved my ass many times

Soul plays, but he doesn't answer or accept invites when doing it slywink  Tried the last two nights.

Oh shit... I got two invites, but they were weird..  Something to the effect " We found a game for your party.  Hit accept "  Didn't give me the normal Hark invited you

In my defense both times I was stopping to play attend to other stuff. 

my bad, Hark

Yes, reset everything, but you gain experience faster once you prestige and I think there are some different weapon challenges

Well, I love the game and tend to play solo (where the heck is everyone?) Anyway, I just hit 35 and typically I would lost interest around lvl 10-15 in COD and that's saying something for me.   I can see myself hitting 50 in this game cause it's so easy.  I might prestige once just so I can say I did it

Was able to get on shortly after bitching about it here. A lot of fun. The campaign mode is a total unnecessary tack on though.

Agreed, only reason to play is to unlock the Stryder and Orge

Edit - Almost done with the IMC campaign and I just hit lvl 11.   Game is fun as expected and will only be  better when we all start partying up.  Campaigns were being farmed yesterday be lvl 20-30 teams... Was a bit disheartening but once I'm done with that mode I'm done

Broadcast some of my game yesterday, but didn't get any viewers.  Btw, I thought broadcast were to be archived but I can seem to find them t on twitch

edit 2 - found to option to archive in the profile. It's  off by default and iyour broadcast are not saved forever

Could just be a little gaming fatigue Otterchaos. Sometimes I'm in the mood for just an RTS, or a slow paced RPG.

Quite probably, I don't get much good sleep these days as I'm working 1830 to 0630 six days a week so patience is pretty low and FPS's take some of that.  I managed to grab the last copy of Dark Souls II for the 360 at the local WallyMart so I am going to dig into that for a bit.  I'm sure to try Titanfall again later tonight.

This is a cross post, because I'm wondering if this applies to Xbone yet (and hoping that it will).  Otherwise, it seems a little late in the game, but it's better than nothing.


Phil Spencer: Games with Gold will feel 'more true' to what consumers want in the future

Here's one insteresting tidbit that never occurred to me:

Quote
"One of our issues with Games with Gold not 'issues,' but differences between the other system we get compared to, is the fact that with Games with Gold, you get to keep that game, regardless of whether you continue to subscribe," Spencer said. "And the business around Games with Gold, for us, is just fundamentally different from some of the other programs that are out there, which does put a different financial picture on a you're gonna go buy a game that's brand new, the cost of putting that in, just to be kind of blunt about it."

OTOH, while I'm sure it would be a challenge to change the infrastructure to such a degree, I'm not sure why they don't make it so that this is not an issue with GwG.

Still, good to hear that better options will be coming.  Is GwG on Xbone yet?  


Not yet, I suspect the library needs to get bigger
