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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Now that I have every modern console and handheld plus a PC who knows when I will use it. I figure it will go well with Gamefly. At least I'll be able to play Lego City and also put away the Wii.

Wanted to post this here since it was confusing me when I saw it:

In Reaper of Souls you might notice that some affixes on items have an orange diamond next to it, and they're meant to indicate the affix will not be calculated in the item comparison tool. In other words, any affix with an orange diamond next to it won't change the red or green numbers in the item window.

Works great for me.

Do you ever have issues with it adding its own background noise, sound being delayed compared to your other speakers, or with the signal getting interrupted?

They only thing I have noticed is an occasional pop coming from the rear speakers, but it is very rare.

Regarding the connections, mine only accepts standard speaker wire with no connectors.

On PC I found that the game is performing quite well, but the prerendered cutscenes do not.

Their benchmark tool scene also takes place during a steady rain which is a lot more resource intensive than most of the game which takes place either indoors or during dry weather.

I'm still trying to figure out what the endgame is here. Every day we get another of these (today Missouri). I find it hard to believe that these states don't know these laws will be immediately challenged in the courts. Is this part of some GOTV plan for November? If so, how?  Is it just so the people who voted for it can say they they did?

193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/PS4/360/PS3] Thief on: February 25, 2014, 08:12:44 PM
Eh, I don't really have any Thief baggage so I am playing on normal. Focus has a reasonable explanation in the story so I don't mind it. It only seems to highlight things that are in line of sight anyway, unlike Dark Vision in Dishonored.

Jumping has been fine so far, it is not as contextual as I was led to believe. If there is a box you can climb it without a prompt and you can jump across gaps and on to ropes. Things that aren't climbable usually look like they shouldn't be climbed, and places that you should be able to reach without the claw are not reachable unless there's a place to grab on to. Areas are tighter than Dishonored, but that makes a lot more sense in this game since you don't have the Blink power. In the first chapter there were lots of different paths to take around the small area you are given access to.

I've only played the first chapter, though.
194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Ps4] inFAMOUS: Second Son on: February 25, 2014, 04:02:31 AM
The problem with the morality system in the infamous games is that you can't make each choice separately. You have to go all bad or all good or you gimp your powers. The best thing they could do would be to make a set of "morally ambiguous" powers you would have access to if you were in between, but would lose access to if you started to go heavily in one direction.
195  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Been reading a bunch of superhero comics, here's what I think on: February 24, 2014, 05:11:13 PM
I mentioned in the Guardians of the Galaxy thread that I am reading a whole mess of Cosmic Marvel comics on Unlimited to get some background before the movie comes out. It's quite a few issues so I've been getting a good picture of how the Marvel universe works.

-first of all, I think Marvel's goal is to bankrupt their readers. If you are not content to wait for several years before reading comics on Unlimited you get bombarded with all sorts of crossover stuff. I was reading Nova, which brought up the New Warriors. This brought me to the events that sparked off the Civil War. OK, Civil War added to reading list. What's this, Civil War touched no less than a dozen titles? Secret Invasion? Another dozen at least. Somewhere there is a kid on a street corner inside a cardboard box filled with Marvel comics.

-there are too many damn superheroes.  When Star-Lord is called back into action they toss him into a team with all sorts of random stuff. Bug, Captain Universe (really?), Deathcry, Mantis (the Celestial Madonna?), Rocket Raccoon and Groot. RR and Groot are cool together and even Mantis and Bug have their moments, but it's just too much. New Warriors have all sorts of randoms. Starjammers? And the thing that I find the laziest is when they just create a villain by letting a guy steal powers from heroes. Super-Skrull (maybe not always a villain) is just a guy with all of the Fantastic Four's powers, and Super-Adaptoid is just a guy with all the Avengers' powers.

But overall there is some cool stuff. Some of the writing is pretty bad, but Star-Lord has been good and I liked Wraith a lot, even though his series ended with some gobbledygook. Kind of curious what happens to him in Conquest because he doesn't have his own book. Nova is pretty good as well. Quasar gets pretty damn dumb at times.

I've read a bunch old X-Men as well (still need to read the Dark Phoenix saga), and that can be kind of hard because even the books from the 70's were just terribly cheesy.

You should read some of the stories about the kids that get on those "mag crews". Pretty awful stuff - they can wind up stuck across the country from their home with no way to get back because their employers are restricting their money. A lot if them also steal things from people's houses. When I read about that and found out how much they also ripped people off on the magazines I never talked to them again.

I haven't even played the ones that cost a reasonable amount of money (Republique, Device 6, Deus Ex, etc.)  I think I just don't care for playing on the touchscreen. But I keep buying. Oh well.
