Finished off the Vermintide missions on Easy. Only four more difficulty levels to go.

Nice!

I have to get back to this game again, one of the few Warhammer licenses that I believe they got right.

I'm addicted to For Honor (XB1) and still plugging away at XCOM 2 LW2 Commander difficulty.

It's back to form - I can manage 4 slow reps of 145lbs (drop sets)  on scots curls (aka spider curls, aka the north face of the preacher bench).

Lol I weighed 145 at my fight last month

Watching some high level play in YouTube is a thing of beauty IMO.  Loving this game, but got frustrated with a hero class earlier this morning.  Some Heroes have a considerable higher skill ceiling than others, but fortunately the game is so fun that I enjoy drilling and practicing custom matches I've made for myself.

Here's a pic. You can notice in the inside bend of my right elbow (this is not a mirrored shot, so my right, your left) that my bicep is seated a half-inch higher than the left.

Damn, and I thought I was in shape

Looking good, but sucks about your bicep though.

Anyone interested in getting better could do worse than to spend some time on this site : https://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-US/how-to-play-tips/index.aspx

Just finished watching.  This is the type of game the more you know, the more fun it is. 
Dynasty Warriors is like playing connect four, and playing For Honor is more like Chess slywink

The two tutorials really don't give you all the ins and outs of all the mechanics and had to do some homework to figure a bunch of stuff out. Luckily the main Ubisoft For Honor website gives you some good info and videos

Here's what can happen when you understand the revenge system and your opponents don't.  Surprise Mother

sadly these are the same type of people that will then either say the game sucks or that the character I was playing was OP simply because they don't know what they are doing frown

Nice video smile

This game is incredibly more deep than I thought, only had a good understanding of how the mechanics work by going through both basic and advanced training tutorial and by reading the wiki on the heroes.  Game reminds me of bushido blade.  No one hit kills (other than environment) but that you have to really pay attention on the stances and potential fake outs/feints to get an opening. 

On Harkonis vid, it gets ridiculous when you spec your gear on filling your revenge meter by defending.  But kudos on your awareness and expert play there

Spent two hours with it tonight and I love it.  Probably won't play much more of the open beta, I already know I'm going to play the hell out of this when it launches. 

Peer to peer connection kinda sucks, not much of a problem during my playtime since only two of the matches I played all night was a laggy mess. 

Curious about the campaign, have a feeling the single player portion of For Honor is probably more like Titanfall 1 than the greatness of Titanfall 2.

I'm in the middle of a busy fight camp, but thanksgiving weekend should give me time to play around with the Division's new DLC.  Also bought some Black Friday deals for the Xbox like Homefront.

I grabbed Homefront: Revolution as well. Maybe you can join the new Gaming Trend club and we can play some coop? It's not often I get to play with someone of your level of lethality, my friend.

I joined the GT club, and Jarrodhk bought the game as well so I can't wait to try out the game this weekend

Nothing this week. I lied about not buying CoD: Infinite Warfare. Bought it mainly for MW: Remastered, Zombies, and the campaign.  The multiplayer (IMO) is horrible compared to BF1 and especially after Titanfall 2.

I saw it in IMAX 3D this afternoon...really cool movie. The visuals and action are awesome. They do a great job of establishing the character and open up the possibilities of a lot of really cool things for the future MCU films. My only complaint would be that the actual plot is pretty sparse and the bad guy pretty cookie-cutter, but it hardly matters when everything else is so well done. While it's not my favorite or the best Marvel film, it's definitely another very solid entry.

I highly recommend that anyone going to see this find a 3D showing. This is a film that really takes advantage of the medium and has very cool visuals that look great in 3D.


I usually don't go the 3D route, but I've been hearing that IMAX 3D is used so well that I will be making an exception tomorrow when I see it.  The last two times IMAX 3D has impressed me was Avatar and Dredd.

I'll be skipping Call of Duty this year. Still having fun will Gears 4 and Titanfall. Also the trial for BF1 is impressing me so I may pick that up

Quote from: Teggy on October 29, 2016, 04:13:05 AM

The campaign is going to take you less than 5 hours, especially if you don't try and find the collectibles, but it was actually pretty fun. It did have some difficulty keeping the action up, but it did some very clever things to keep the gameplay interesting. Mixing up sections in/out out the Titan, parkour/platforming, tons of weapons, and some surprising abilities.

You get to try 8 different titan load outs which gives you the opportunity to practice with the stuff you'll see in MP. Oddly, though, the grappling hook is not in the campaign.

It needs another iteration but I was pretty pleased. It was not just another CoD/Battlefield campaign.

I'm really enjoying the campaign side of things, and is a great addition to the multiplayer.  And I have to agree that the campaign, while not very long, is very well done and has been able to keep my interest. 
The last two Call of Duty games' campaign bores me to tears (in my opinion), and was only fun for me when I played coop with another person.  It just seemed like a really pretty shooting gallery.  For some context I really enjoy Battfield 4 and Battlefield 1 (from what I have played so far) single player portion.

Yay! Apparently EA and Respawn entertainment has stated that all new upcoming maps and modes will be free, so no season pass is needed.

As I hoped, we're at least getting a little cosmetic (Liberty Cape) and a new weapon (a WWI era rifle -- must be a Battlefield 1 tie-in?  icon_smile) And various events today for Liberty Day, including devs popping in to play though I'm guessing that's on PS4.

Helldivers celebrating Liberty Day 2016! – Competitions, Livestream, Reddit AMA

Citizens of Super Earth,

Thanks to your bravery in the Galactic Wars we are once again able to wish you a magnificent Liberty Day!
 In celebration of this historical anniversary we are hosting some competitions and other events, as well as giving away free equipment to all Helldivers. Read on for full details.

New Liberty Day equipment


To celebrate Liberty Day all players will receive the new rifle M2016 ‘Constitution’ and the Liberty cape.

The M2016 ‘CONSTITUTION’ is a reproduction of the old M1903 service rifle used in ancient times. It is fairly ineffective in combat but is used within the Super Earth Armed Forces as a ceremonial rifle. Every citizen is issued one once they turn 16 to encourage service.
 While not recommended to bring into the field, it is certainly possible to use for the very skilled or the very brave.

The LIBERTY CAPE is given to every Helldiver so they will be able to celebrate the big day in style, while also showing their dedication to protecting the precious Liberty we enjoy today.

In addition to the new Liberty Day gear there are two more capes which have been added to the game – the Community Cape and the Developer Cape.

The COMMUNITY CAPE is given as a reward to outstanding individuals who have participated in – or helped out – the Helldivers community in various ways. Whether that be assistance in solving bugs, guiding new recruits, winning competitions or actively participating and engaging in forum discussions, these individuals can be distinguished from other recruits.

The DEVELOPER CAPE allows you to recognize members of the developer or publisher teams amidst the chaos of battle. (Shooting or badgering developers will not earn you any rewards, rather the opposite. We just wish to enjoy spreading democracy side by side!)
Also some fun "create your own" cape contests and a contest involving posting a comment on that blog URL's comments thread.

It's good to hear that this game is still going strong.  I haven't played in a while but I feel that itch coming back smile

Apparently Gears of War 4 is doing a similar thing to Forza Horizon 3 and it's version of the Ultimate Edition and Collector's Edition will be out early tomorrow. 

I bought my ultimate edition at midnight. The game downloaded extremely fast as was able to play a bit already.  I think Jarrodhk bought the ultimate edition as well smile
