I'm assuming it's the original release of the game, without any of the DLC.

Specifically anything prior to Taken King.
122  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: September 18, 2015, 05:19:40 AM
So I hear the vanilla game is totally gimped now. That's unfortunate, I was going to dabble in the new systems and then maybe get the Taken King if I liked it, but now I think I will at least wait for a good sale.

I've been playing it quite a bit and getting to the point where I'm going to need to grind if I want to get access to some of the better gear. The way the xp is handled, when you get into the mid 20s (I'm 35) you can do at most 2 story missions per day, so you are going to be with the game a little while if you want to see what happens. I want to see how the story turns out but I don't know if I'll have much patience to do more than that. I'm curious to see if there is any endgame to speak of or if it is just grinding for gear and upgrade materials.

Why do you ignore Soulchilde's posts? Not very nice.

that's where I found out about it, not sure what you are getting at.  Was just sharing mine

Seemed like you were posting that you found it. I wasn't being terribly serious anyway. Carry on.

The fact that there is still no affordable wheel for the Xbox yet I get a pass on buying Forza (shouldn't have bought 5 for that matter) and I am pretending Taken King doesn't exist right now. So nothing! Hoping to finish Fallout 3, New Vegas and Metal Gear before Fallout 4 and Tomb Raider hit.

I'm not sure what you consider affordable, but there are several wheels available for the Xbox one from $80, $100, $130 with pedals (and of course up to several hundred dollars).

Oh, I didn't realize these had come out. I guess I'll have to look into it.

Edit: meh, no force feedback on those wheels.
128  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL 2015 Week 1 -- FOOTBALL IS BACK! on: September 15, 2015, 04:54:13 AM
And after looking like total trash the Cowboys are a game up on the entire NFC Least. I love football.

Oh, and score one for the Dallas offensive line in the "what made Demarco Murray so good last season" debate.

One of the things I like about Guild Wars is that they didn't put in content you could get locked out of due to not having enough online friends to group up with. Oh well.

Didn't the final main story quest require a group?  I remember being extremely frustrated because I didn't have to group with anyone the entire time, and suddenly had to group up for the last mission...maybe they've changed that now.

Well, I meant like 5 people was at least a reasonable amount of people to find for an occasional dungeon.

As it turns out, though, I'm told they nerfed Arah so you can solo it now.

New expansion getting rid of light levels   I just might pick this expansion up once it hit the 20.00 range.   40.00 is just too much

After spending a few days with the 2.0 update I must admit I think I'll be paying the 40.00 bucks for the expansion.   I like what I'm seeing with this update

I played the first few missions but didn't see much outside of the new way they show quests and the new light level stuff. What did you see that you liked?
134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/8) on: September 09, 2015, 02:46:05 PM
Thank goodness I don't want anything in this list so I can work on Mad Max and Metal Gear. Looking at the schedule I might be ok all the way until Tomb Raider/Fallout 4, depending on what I decide on Assassin's Creed, COD and Halo.

Oh, I guess I might get Yoshi's Woolly World, although I kind of only want it if I can get the pack with the amiibo.

You might need to check some videos.  There are some insane wall traversal opportunities that you may be missing.

I found a few shortcuts that went around corners and stuff, but it's not open enough to allow for what I'd like to see.  Plus a lot of those longer ones require you to execute perfectly or you fall off the map :/
142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Call of Duty: BlOps 3 on: August 29, 2015, 08:52:56 PM
I loaded up the game yesterday (thanks ATB) and played around 6 matches. Had some good runs, had a lot more bad runs. It wasn't what I was hoping it would be, which is a scaled down version of Titanfall minus the bots and mechs. There's not a lot of opportunity for traversing the map using wallruns, and in fact you start slipping if you wallrun too far. Even the mechanics of wall running don't feel as easy as in Titanfall. Outside of that it feels pretty much like COD with some new weapons and ideas.

I realized what I really miss from COD is the sense of battle lines. There used to be a lot of maps where you would attack at certain points and then push forward until you flipped spawn points. There would be great battles fought to attack or defend those points. Now it's mostly everyone running and jumping around at top speed and it feels more like chaos than a battle.

I definitely won't be buying digital, but I might get the disc copy so I can play single player. Depending on how I take to the MP I can also make a quick trade.

I don't know, I think if people want to be referred to in a certain way it's ok to work with them as long as it comes from an honest place (for example, I don't need to refer to someone with some sort of Pokemon identifier, because no matter what they say, they are not a Pokemon). Although I don't even understand how they intend the xe and ze stuff to be used.

What I don't like with regard to Universities is the overuse of trigger warnings. That particular concept has gotten way out of hand.  It's ok for Universities to create an inclusive environment, but they need to make sure they are not coddling people to the point of being unable to manage in the real world.

Emily Rose has definitely gotten around on TV, she had her own show on SyFy, and Claudia Black (Chloe) is probably the most famous Uncharted personality. The rest of the cast, yeah, they are pretty much all voice actors at this point. I'm actually surprised that Troy Baker has not been taking on live action roles, although that could be by choice.  You may not get super rich being a VO artist, but it's probably a very easy way to make a living as an actor.

You can almost hear the call of the publishers this week as they rush to get their wares out before a certain big name hits on September 1st (and another, older name with promises of an established developer).

I'm pretty much entirely out of the loop these days...what comes out Sept 1?

I assume he's referring to MGSV.

so in this future world where everyone has super high reflexes, nobody can react to being under fire?  you're grasping here.

If you can actually run up a wall or slide in response to taking fire and not die doing so, lemme know.  I doubt it since every previous COD you are dead no matter what you do barring luck/lag.  I'd be fine with having the ability to boost up in the air to avoid fire too, or turn invisible and dart away, all things we don't do in real life.  The point was that there is nothing you can do in COD once you know you are tkaing fire before you die.  Even when you have a ballistic shield in COD, you can't even raise it before you die due to the ttk vs lag.

Man, who pissed in your cheerios?

The point is they designed this game for the soldiers to constantly be in motion, so it makes more sense to run up a wall or slide through a doorway when faced with fire then to stop and hit the ground. You can also float in the air and thrust in a direction to avoid fire.

  Most of these shooters are missing the type of movement people really do when under fire.  Quick reactionary dives to cover or bursts forward to the next area.

I think the fact that you can run on walls indicates they weren't really going for a realistic feel slywink


I realize you're making a joke, but this type of comment/attitude is really stupid.  That's like saying if a game has lasers or fireballs they simply shouldn't try to do ANYTHING realistic.  That's bullshit.  You don't have to go 'one shot kills you' realistic, but you can still make a game FEEL realistic with plenty of non-realistic stuff in it.  I guarantee I could make a game with superheroes feel realistic if I had the money to do so.  More importantly it would feel realistic AND fun which is something that seems foreign to anyone these days.

But this is realism in this world. If you are running on walls into slides you are going to run up a wall or slide to dodge gunfire. You're applying our world tactics to a world that uses completely different equipment and tactics.

This looks mostly like Titanfall without robots. Which is not necessarily bad, but I really miss original Black Ops and would welcome a new shooter with that feel.

This is my last COD unless it's amazing.  Only trying it because Treyarch hasn't had a shot yet this gen.  I'm tentatively excited since it looks like it has the mobility of AW and then some, without the crazy speed.  Bit bummed both this and Battlefront are same month though.

Wait, people running nonstop is not "crazy speed"?

Unlimited sprint without a perk. I am sort of torn between not getting it because I will be terrible at it and getting it because it will be so different. I'm wondering if people will be able to do knife builds or quick scoping with this kind of setup.
