I will definately help. 

This may sound kinda nerdy or weird, but I consider GamingTrend to be a second family. 

Since I'm always moving around the world, its nice to have the GT crew around....whether its online or coming home overseas. 

Knightshade, thanks for making GT what it is today  thumbsup

Last friday was a blast, and hopefully we can all get together in the same room again. 

Whenever Pete and I are on oppossing teams, we always seem to find each other and have some memorable firefights.  I'm so stubborn sometimes when I die to him that I won't focus on anything else but try to hunt him down  ninja

It seems it would be rather easy to mega-ban these people right now.

I've heard reports that some people in various US armed forces just got access to legitimate copies, but I only have "my brother in Camp Victory said" stories to support it. 

I can confirm that in Iraq, soldiers and marines stationed in FOB Delta have the game. 

That's a fine move Activision/Infinity Ward! Way to treat the troops right.   thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

Question: IIRC, Kato you weren't allowed to play COD4 or any FPS (?) while deployed.  How would this work now? Did they change the rules or am I misremembering?

You are correct, the last time I was deployed on a Marine Base in Iraq, it was banned due to PTSD related issues....which I totally didn't agree with, but oh well.  However, on an ARMY FOB, they get to play anything they want  icon_biggrin

Here isi what I learned so far, the game almost forces you to use the Holy Trinity..almost.  You can get away with Heal putice for awhile, but you will need a healer, tank and DPS.  I've completed both of the bonus content -Warden's Keep & Stone Golem and both I breezed through using the Trinity

oh Alistair > Sten



I agree 100%.  I'm playing on hard and currently the party is around lvl 10, and its hard to win battles without the Trinity.  I'm pretty sure things will get more intersting once I get my party into higher levels to their specialist classes, but until then its the Trinity.

I agree on Alistair > Sten.  However I keep him happy with gifts and small talk, so hopefully down the line he can teach us a specialist class like Beserker or something.

If you are worried about choppiness then you should be fine with the 360 version- most reviews indicate it plays very smoothly.  It seems it's the PS3 version that is choppy.  

Okay I have the PC and xbox versions.  Only around 2 hours in (so take this with a grain of salt) and the for the most part the 360 version plays pretty smoothly.  

Comparisons (at least for me) are just like the differences between the PC and 360 version of Fallout 3, and Mass Effect.  

Also I installed Dragon Age to the hard drive, not sure if that is any indication of performance....no slow texture loading yet Razgon  icon_smile

I wish it was compatible with the XBOX  icon_wink I did pre-order the madcatz throat mic, and hopefully it can deliver on what it advertises.  My real-life tactical throat mic works very well, noise cancelling and super-clear voice comm.  If the madcatz version comes close or even improves on the quality of the standard xbox headset, i'll be happy.

Party chat is disabled in MW2 MP games.  I know we used this exclusively in W@W, so this is a bummer.

Wow, that's really interesting. I didn't know that was possible, but it does make a lot of sense for fairness. Hopefully it will not make getting games together a pain. I guess we did it in CoD4 for a long time.

I think what'll happen is that we'll all be partied, and then when the game starts, you press Y or something to go into game chat, so we can hear the ass hats from the other team.  If we have to rama-lama then it drops the previously partied people back to party chat.  I figure it'll be quite some time before we have to worry about having less than a full team together to really need to have open chat, unless it's an odd hour of the night.
I set my prefrences to hear friends only anyway so this is not that much of a big deal.  Its not that trash talking that bothers me, I just need to be able to communicate and cordinate with my team effectively.

I downloaded the game, but I'm apparently just not that good at it. I've won the first few campaign missions, but I'm stuck on the 3rd or 4th one (whichever mission has the swamps on the left that they send the airborne troops through, and your troops go up the right side with two villages in the middle of the map near the german home row).

Any advice, either for this mission or the game in general?

I'm stuck at that mission too  icon_frown I know that the game grades you on how fast you can complete a mission, but on this one I think I have to take my time

Really fun and I can't wait until we get a full group to rift with us.

Forum effect is starting to get to me on this one... 

Question:  Does the game come with any kind of buddy code or trial you can give to someone?  The reason I ask is, I might pick it up and if it has a code let the wife try it out along with me.  I really wouldn't want to buy 2 copies at the outset until I know if she'd like it too.



At the moment, I don't think there is a trial/buddy code at this time.

I was planning on using this thread for us to communicate easier who needs what for what and who has what for whom. smile

I have cooking, alchemy and tailoring.  With these I can make drinks that increase hp and mana regen, food that increases stats, potions that heal hp or mana and remove status effects.  I can also make cloth and leather armor as well as hats and belts.

Items I use are Armor, Weapon and Accessory fluxes.  I really only need the non-prefix ones on up.  (they go minor/lessor/none/greater/major/expert)  I especially need the ones that are 'Worthy' (green quality). 

I also need high-grade gold ore, high-grade titanium ore, high-grade aether crystals for tailoring.

I need thick rawhide, fess fibers, raw pluma meat, omblic, umblia, wiki, elemental stones, lumesia.

I can also turn mana stones of a lower quality into those of a higher.  only ones really worth it from a financial point are +attack and +physical crit, but I can do others if it's a stone you use.

I'll have a list of the potions, equip and food I can make soon.  If you can get me the materials I can get you the stuff smile

You crafting whore! And I love it.

Things I found out while playing with the legion last night:

  • Harkonis has a mohawk
  • A level 23 Assassin can tank Tursin outpost easily with a good healer
  • Pink is IN in Elyos
  • level 22 skill manuals will cost a scout over 60k
  • Soull's ass is VERY attractive to mobs
  • Rittch is all about happy endings
  • Erection jokes are just as funny to me as they were 30 years ago
  • Egregious looks like an evil Obama
  • our legion rocks

 thumbsup +1

You should ask Harkonis about our Legion Drinking game....  ninja
