81  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XB1 Elite controller - mecca of console control, or ridiculously overpriced? on: November 04, 2015, 03:03:57 PM
as much as I want one I can't justify the cost, but I don't think it's marketed for me.  Imo. its for the professionals ( eSports/Twitch/Youtube Streamers) 

I will admit I'm a bit jealous, but enjoy them.   I'm certain with MS success Sony can't be far behind with their own model

My system received the latest build last night and when I turned my system on this morning I had the dreaded call support message.  Did a full power down and unplug the power.. waited 30 sec and turned on my xbox and it booted up fine, but I had to unplug and plug back in the Kinect for that to work.


I'm not sure the Win 10 update is ready to be rolled out... Voice recognition does seem to be better with this build

Nada - Waiting on reviews for Need For Speed.  I had fun with the beta, but some of their design decisions have me worried


Also, I hate rubber band AI in driving games and I think it reared it ugly head here

Playing Wasteland 2 on the PC as I received it for free for backing The Bard's Tale on Kickstarter...  I wished I had the console version but I see no reason to double dip, but from what I have read on the Net the Director's Cut for the console is a pretty good port
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 10/30/15 Halloween Edition on: November 02, 2015, 01:15:48 PM
Played Battleborn Closed Technical Test and I'm impressed so far.   Totally ignored Destiny this weekend and played Wasteland 2 Director's Cut, but I think I'll be putting Destiny on the back burner for the time being.    I'm actually looking forward to Fallout 4 next week
87  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 10/30/15 Halloween Edition on: October 30, 2015, 10:30:30 AM
I'm in the Battleborn Closed Technical Test, so I'll try that this weekend.  More Halo and Destiny.  What on your agenda this weekend?

The Sunsinger is the only subclass with a self rez.  Also, the Warlock Trainer has a quest for the Void Walker and Sunsinger sub-classes, but the Storm Caller is the stronger of the three and is the one I primarily use

Several sites are stating the PC game is still broken.   Avoid at all cost unless you go PS4 or XB1

I love Halloween and I own the series Blu-Ray Box Set and I would pick Psycho as it much more of a classic than Halloween.   Alfred Hitchcock on a big screen shouldn't be missed, imo

Well, they added aiming down sights for this game.  Not that it gives you an advantage, but there's no disadvantage either, right?

You get knocked out of aiming down the sights when hit, so actually it discourages you from doing it but all guns now allow you to do it as a compromise I guess 
94  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1] Halo 5 on: October 27, 2015, 11:00:52 AM
Played some of the campaign this morning and after Destiny and how fast your character is in that game getting used to the slow movement of Locke was a chore...   I thought Spartans had a double jump?

It's the weekend playlist, so what's on tap for you this weekend.   Mainly Destiny  for me with some Wasteland 2 Director's Cut for good measure.   I'm also apartment hunting and hating it, so that will take up some of my time this weekend too

So anyone up for the Co-op Campaign?   

Is it separate from the main campaign? I haven't read much into the co-op.

Same campaign.  This game is different as Blue Team and Team Osiris  with both travel the entire game with your squad

Thanks for the responses.

It looks like the Bounty mission I have is to complete a bounty. Problem is I don't recall which person I pick those up from.

Did reach L10 last night and played a "dungeon" story mission that required 3 people. Very annoying fights. Took forever to kill the two bosses. They seemed to have an endless pool of hit points. So instead of it being a challenge it was mainly just grinding those HP down. Hopefully they're all not like that where they have huge pools of HPs.


If it;s the Bounty bot when you get back to the Hub there should be a way point to him.   If not you can just complete it in your quest log

So I just got this recently started playing and have a few questions.

1) How do the bounties work? When I look at the details of the bounty it doesn't really say what I need to do. Just that 'x user' has set this bounty. Apparently I have 50% of it complete but no idea how or why or where to go to complete it.

The text in the Bounty should detail what you need to do.  Kill 50 X with Solar damage for example.  Just click on the bounty in your quest log

2) Should I just dismantle any armor/weapons/items that I have no need for anymore? I've been doing that but not sure if that's the best/only thing to do with those items

Yes, if you level the item you will get more mats but for most greens  and blues it's okay to dismantle

3) It looks like you can upgrade your ship. Is it just the look of the ship your upgrading? No other purpose? I saw one ship vendor that had a bunch of ships shapes I couldn't purchase.

Ships are just cool looking.  Unlike your bike they are really just cosmetic

4) Some of the "quests" I get are for killing "x" number of monsters with a weapon type. Should I be going out of my way to complete those or just let those complete naturally? I've just been following the story missions mainly.

Quest or Bounties?

5) It looks like there are a few "houses" to join where you get reputation gear. I joined one of them but wondering if I should pick and choose based on my class. Does it matter?

Factions have different rewards.  Check out thier rewards to find the ones you like.  I joined FWC with my Warlock as I like a Legendary Hand Cannon that they have

6) How does grouping work? Can you only group via a friends list or something?

Via friends list or Matchmaking for PvP and Strikes.

7) Are there going to be "dungeons"? Where you specifically need 3-4 people to complete? Around what level do I start seeing those?

Strikes are the 3 man fire teams and raids are 6 man fire teams

I'm enjoying the game quite a bit - was a bit surprised since I wasn't that big on Halo. The controls feel really good to me for a FPS with a controller. I'm actually able to make head shots often - maybe the aim assist is being overally helpful. No idea what's going on story wise but love the look of the areas. I just hit L9 so not too deep in to anything yet but at the point where I'm looking forward to playing when I have time.

see my answers under your questions

Kotaku's expose' on what really happened to Destiny   is a pretty good read and explains so much about the initial game

Ended up with the Sleeper Stimulant Exotic along with the Warlock Exotic Scout Rifle burned a exotic shard to get it to  290, but I like it.   Probably start working on the Crucible portion of the sword quest this week

Wasteland 2 XB1.   I thought I was supposed to be gifted a copy for backing The Bard's Tale on Kickstarter but I must be mistaken


Nope I did.. I just missed the email.  Looks like I can get a copy of the director's cut on Steam or GOG only
109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 10/9/15 Edition on: October 09, 2015, 11:08:15 AM
So I'm probably going to be knee deep in Destiny as I just unlocked the Strike portion of the Sleeper Stimulant quest.    if I get a code I'll try out a certain game by Gearbox too


What's on tap for you

One of the things I learned when using the Auto Level Token is that your skill trees need to be unlocked too.  So, being level 25 with so few skills can be daunting

I'm diving into the NFS Beta this weekend.  Can't take any video but I'm really looking forward to this.   

Same here, hopefully it's in good shape!

I tried out that NFS beta for a very brief period, enough to experience a bunch of server issues logging in as well as some terrible FMV cutscenes that can't be skipped. 



Weird I didn't have many server issues  at all and was impressed I didn't get dropped.  I think the game locked up on me once that required a hard reboot.  I agree the FMV was eye rolling worthy and if anything it will kill this title. 


BTW, did you upgrade your initial car?  After buying and upgrading the car I found my initial Subaru handled much better

114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XB1 or PS4? Best console for me plus kids on: October 04, 2015, 03:01:47 PM
I have an XB1 and I like the new Kinect but I don't use it for gaming mainly for the voice function for controlling console (switching channels, snapping apps and capturing gaming moments.) Now for your choice if I had to recommended a console I would a PS4.  Currently, it;s the lead console for many game makers and have the better graphics that run at a native 1080p.  Many games are cross platform with both have good exclusives.   If you're into gaming with friends the majority here are on PS4


Saying that I love my XB1 and I think it a great console that is getting better and I don't regret my choice at all
