Well just send me your Obama-supplied ration of licorice and I will eat it.

How could you not like black licorice?  It's one of the worlds great tastes.

They're a Polish unauthorized key reseller. While some people have had no problems with them, I prefer to take my business to other places and pay a bit more.

Starting to get a bit burned out with the grind at 39. I was enjoying the questing for however many hours I've done it so far,  but there's so little variation in what you are doing at this point that it's getting kind of boring. The suggested levels for dungeons are so narrow, and very few people are using the dungeon finder anyway. Other than that there is WvW, but I'm not really into the big zerg thing. And that's kind of it as far as what you can do in the game for now. I'd like to get to 50 for the story, but I'm not feeling it a whole lot at the moment.

I'll be there on Sunday. I didn't sign in early enough to get a three-day but to be honest now that I'm an old fart just going one day to check out the floor seems more appealing.

9  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Elder Scrolls Online on: April 09, 2014, 03:11:08 PM
If you are interested in moving ahead faster, just do the quests at your level. I recently ran 2 characters through the beginning Ebonheart quests:

First character did the quest to defend Davon's Watch, then went to Bleakrock and did every single quest on Bleakrock (got the achievement for finding all the hidden villagers), then did all the quests in Bal Foyen, then went back to Davon's Watch. She was level 7.

Second character went straight to Bleakrock, did one main quest and one sidequest and got the skyshards, did all of the quests in Bal Foyen to catch up a level, then went back to Davon's Watch. She was level 6.

So all of those extra quests took up a lot of extra time and probably got me less than a level. Of course, even if you don't do all the quests, you'll want to do the public dungeons to get the skyshards and also get the skyshards in the world. There are also quests the give skill points. You might want to mark those down if you have a character doing everything or you can use a guide.

Personally, I would prefer a game that took a month to get to max level. For one, it's stupid that you can craft weapons or armor for your friends and they outlevel it in an hour or less.

I tried the Mac client this morning on my 2011 MacBook Pro and it performs well and looks really good on medium settings. Blows the GW2 Mac client out of the water for sure.

I'm looking forward to a long stretch of backlog clearing. I am tempted by The Show, but every time I buy that series I never put as much time into it as I plan to.

Mine was Thor for a while with her "Odyn Son" hammer that proced lightning, but now she just has a sword. That's quick leveling for you.

Finished up this afternoon.  Completed all the missions except for one, which I think was a bug (was supposed to find 5 poems in a dudes house, and one of them wasn't where it was supposed to be according to the FAQ I read).

I had an issue with that one too, the problem was
Spoiler for Hiden:
they stupidly put one under a health pack, not realizing that anyone with full health packs could not pick the health pack on top of it. So you had to hurt yourself, then use a health pack, then pick up the health pack so you could get the poem.

I haven't checked the release notes to see if they fixed that.

Since I had reset the story with my Demon Hunter a few days ago I couldn't jump into Act V. I am reserving my Wizard for a possible Act V playthrough with the group I took her through Inferno with, so that changed my plan and now I am started fresh at Act I with a Crusader Tongue

At least I'll get all those boss achievements that were replaced when they retired all the ones based on the old difficulty levels.

Wouldn't destructive environments make pilots cannon fodder?

Yes, he actually points out that destructive buildings alone would probably not work in the game, but points out that there could be dynamic events on the maps like in Battlefield/CoD/Gears. The fact that there are giant monsters on a map and they are just window dressing is one particular wasted opportunity.

(BTW he plays on PC, which is why some of the Xbone features don't apply)

I think the point is not to nitpick any one of these items, but that there is a list of items this long, many of which we've come to expect as standard in a MP shooter.

I mean, sure you can play for 20 hours, but you can play Loadout for 20 hours too for free. Like I said, I mostly curious about when they actually planned for this game to come out, and what was the feature set would have been in the complete game. We know that private matches are coming, but was there anything else?
23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: March 19, 2014, 12:34:13 AM
Let me preface by saying I really like Titanfall and will be playing it a lot more, but I was watching this review by Angry Joe and he brought up a good point about the game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZhUHOqaC5_A#t=1190

I fast forwarded to the relevant portion, since a lot of the review is just complaining that the SP portion was crappy, which is true, but didn't need 15 minutes to explain.

He points out the following shortcomings in the game:
No private matches
No private lobbies (and no kick from lobby option)
No clan support
No rematches
No emblems
No pilot customization
No weapon customization
No Titan customization
Only 10 pilot weapons
Only 5 game modes
No destruction or interactive/changing environments

Was what we got worth $60? Would we have had a problem paying $60 for this game if not for Respawn's credentials? Would reviews have been as high?

What I am most curious about given these facts is what was the game's path to release? Is it possible this game was delivered possibly a year prior to Respawn's plans due to requests from Microsoft?

Eh, not everyone has to like every game and genre. MOBAs are like a foreign language to me and I can't play RTS to save my life.

MOBAs are more like competitive versions of Action RPGs like Marvel Heroes or Diablo than an RTS.  Just all the loot/leveling is sort of confined to the match.

I meant RTS as a second example in that sentence - MOBA and RTS are two genres I don't really get/am not good at, but I don't feel like I need to try and get into them just because other people like them.

I knew this, sorry, thought you knew that when you mentioned unbinding it.  Since it is xp boost it should be fine in ling run, right?

For the most part yes, but I took it off Ms. Marvel at 50, so she'll have to rank it back up before getting the extra 10% when I take her from 50-60. I also made one extra this weekend and maybe I'll have enough time before the event ends to make another. There's some value having them on 60's for rare/special find, but the XP bonus is probably the biggest benefit.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Marvel Heroes on: March 16, 2014, 06:07:21 PM
I learned something the hard way today - unbinding a legendary resets the ranks.

Has anyone able to get this game to work from a suspended state? Even if I back all the way out to the game menu, then turn my console off, when I turn it back on, I can't ever get back into a match without the game seizing up. I can bring it back up, change loadouts, etc., but when I try to enter a match for the first time, it hangs. Every time I start the console up, I have to use the menu button to quit the game, which is annoying because then you have to sit through the intro movies.

How do I know if I'm playing the game from a suspended state?  If I can turn my Xbox on with "Xbox, on!" ?

Yes, and if you don't see the EA/Respawn title stuff when you start the game.

Hey Teggy-

Not sure if you meant it, but the way you typed your last post, one might get the mistaken impression that you are talking about your testicles.

LOL if unintentional.

What? You have a very dirty mind.

I'm all about the brute force of Ogre and my balls of death, Triple Threat with extended mag. Are you trying to hide in that building? I'm rolling my balls under the door. Are you trying to hide upstairs? I'm throwing my balls through the window. You can't hide from my balls. Eat my balls.
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Marvel Heroes on: March 13, 2014, 02:03:39 PM
Might want to tear yourself away from Titanfall a little this weekend - the event drops loot that can be crafted into a special legendary for your characters that provides bonus xp and item find (depending on how high you rank it). You can pop it on your characters until you have Odin marks for a real legendary.

turn on minion detector, grab gun, profit slywink  You can help your team even if you never kill another player

My last match early this afternoon, all I did was have a smart gun and killed over 50 grunts and specters. Ended up just killing two pilots but was still the MVP in attrition mode.

As an alternative, play hardpoint and take enhanced parkour. Go to the point nearest your base, hop up on a good wall and watch the points roll in (+75, +75, +75...) Kill unsuspecting enemies who walk in. Get the active sonar and you can even see them coming.

"Pilot, your Titan has been destroyed.  Beginning construction on a replacement."

Buddy, maybe next time just start constructing the new one right as soon as I get inside this one.  Have it on hand, you know?

It's because there is a finite number of titans and when one is blown up all of the raw materials are captured in a transporter and then reconstituted into a new titan.

I just made that up and it totally makes sense, yup.
