Ok ok I'll head out of the Hinterlands but if the refugees freeze or starve be it on your heads!  First step to getting out of there would be to play more single player and less multiplayer with Mikagami, Kato, Hark and Jarred which has a Mass Effect 3 feel to it.  I need that 1200 gold for the large chest and the chance for an upgraded damage weapon!

This will probably never get finished and it takes up one of my five bounty spots.  

I think you can cancel bounties in the inventory screen.

You definitely can.

Oh I know that but it is hard to let a bounty for an exotic go even with faint hope of getting it done.

I've had mostly good luck with randoms on strikes.  A few drops here and there, but most of the time some decent teamwork, pointing out chest locations, and a wave/salute upon completing the strike with occasional dancing, though I'm too old for that last bit and just sit down to rest..
Is everyone on the FT able to loot the same chest during a strike mission? 

I think so? 

You can but the chest will disappear quickly after the first person loots it, best to have everyone near the chest before opening it up as that will allow everyone to loot it.

Ahhhh PvP, it is fun but getting one shotted gets old quick.  To make it even more fun I got "lucky" and received a bounty quest for an exotic (gold engram) hand canon and the second step in order to get the gun is that I have to collect 500 points  by getting kills in PvP.  Just a grind right?  Well i get 5 points per kill so eventually I'll get there with time so you'd think but there are two kickers, first is that every time I die I lose 2 points and the second is that I have to use void damage to get credit for the kills.  No primary weapon that I know of has void damage so it is shotguns, fusion rifles etc only to try and get this done.  This will probably never get finished and it takes up one of my five bounty spots.  

I currently have 58 points and that is after having career games with up to 20 ( that is right Hark, 20) kills in a match.

GiantBomb is a good site, but Jeff Gerstmann has very unusual opinions about games that often don't match those of the average gamer.

Jeff and I used to have virtually the same opinion on games. If he liked it I did. If he didn't I probably didn't.  That said, he has become SO MUCH more cynical since Ryan died.  He pretty much hates everything and I'm not sure why he's still the business other than because he's really good at it. It just seems the passion is gone.

Anyway, finally played my first strike on Earth and...I. LOVED. IT.

After bringing the Guardian Gospel to the Fallen heathens, the two randoms and I spontaneously broke out dancing and it thus far is one of the highlights of the experience.

I've played that raid 2 more times and now I'm overleveled for it (10) and am finding that I still need to figure out how to balance exploration/crucible/repeating missions with not getting ahead of the recommended levels for the story missions.

The first time through that raid it was me @ 7 and two other 8s i believe. And it was wonderfully tense.  2nd time I did it I was 8 or just about to hit 9 with two other guys at the same level.  It was tough but a bit easier.  As a 10, it wasn't a cakewalk, but it was none too hard either.

So now I'm going to concentrate on story missions so I don't outrace the difficulty.

Really happy with the game so far, but I am just getting smacked around in the crucible...

You can turn up the difficulty of a mission if it looks too easy after you get more levels, click on the normal tab before launching the mission and you can see what higher levels are available.  Increasing the base difficultiy turns it into a heroic level.

Got booted out of the game and XBLive an hour or so ago, still can't sign into my account on the xbox one.  Looks to be a problem on MS's end and no idea how long this is going to last.  A definite down side to requiring online to play the game. http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live-status?icid=furl_status

I hope the actual game isn't so heavy on combat encounters, I'm not good at the dogfighting and the free ship you start with is very under armed.  I've yet to have an encounter that didn't end in fighting and usually my death.  Had a neat area where I found gold floating in space so I deployed my cargo scoop to pick some up but of course two heavily armed fighters dropped in and killed me before I could get close to the gold.  I suppose I should have done silent running but did not have time to try it as they showed up and started firing right away.  I guess I need to read up on the game and find out how to make money in ways other than dogfighting.

Just to be clear I'll be getting a Rift on release.  One thing though is software compatibility, not sure how many games that support the TrackIR will add Rift support if their game is already in release.

Tilt, how is reading text in Elite using the DK2?  I had heard it is a bit more challenging then reading it on a monitor.

when you get your rift, you won't need that TrackIR.... hint hint

Yeah, skipping the DK2 because it's "temporary" while getting a TrackIR instead is kind of counter-intuitive. The TrackIR will be just as obsolete for these games as the DK2 once the CV1 is out. Actually, the DK2 won't be obsolete if I'm not mistaken. It'll just give a lesser experience than the full consumer version, but should still work. The same can't be said for the DK1.

While true, I've had the TrackIR since before the Occulus was announced so I didn't get it while skipping the DK2.  I'm willing to wait for the consumer release of the Occulus to see what further improvements they make, I've already read that the DK2 seems to cause less motion sickness than the DK1 so if there is even more room for improvement I can wait awhile before packing the TrackIR up and sending it to Indy.

Few hours in and it is pretty fun, managed to travel to a far off station that I found by sheer luck and sold half of my cargo for a whopping 326 CR profit, of course fuel and repairs almost wiped all that out.  Game looks great and seem to have so much depth to explore and I'm happy to have bought it.
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Elite: Dangerous on: August 14, 2014, 04:56:48 AM
TrackIr you say?  hmmmm



I'm waiting for the consumer release of the Occulus, I know the guys at Tested did a look at the game using DevKit2 and they didn't think it was worth buying the Devkit unless you were a developer or had $350 to spend on this version knowing the final would most likely be a better bet.  I can wait and see how the TrackIR works in the game as yes I'm now downloading the $75 Beta (I have no issue with the price btw) due to all the recent good videos and press about the game.

I liked it a lot but can't say I loved it.  I think I prefer The Avengers and Ironman1 over GotG but I will look forward to GotG2 as it was enjoyable.  I guess I was hoping for a little more uniqueness compared to other Marvel films, it had some but I thought it would really break the mold of this type of flick.

I can see why you like the first house, the second one looks like any of a thousand other houses you can buy.  Having said that I think the second is a better choice in the long run unless that train track gets abandoned in the near future.  Also what about heating and cooling costs?  That large brick structure might cost a fair penny to keep comfortable.  If you have kids then the quality of the respective school districts could be a factor.

If you can party up with randoms, I'm fine with 3-6 man raids.  I've always had good luck with randoms believe it or not in games that require cooperation...

We'll see. Really hoping this game is great.  If it is, I'll probably bump up to the one with the expansion pass...

In the alpha it was quite easy to get into a random group, I just selected the mission area and the game found two other players to join in.  No issues at all.

Wow, another humiliating loss for Brazil! I can't remember any other world cup where a team so strongly favored lost so badly. I'm thinking this can't be good for Brazil's Olympic committee who now have to get the Public to buy into the 2016 Olympics.

That's a great point, I hadn't thought of the Olympics coming to Brazil in two years and they already had protests about the World Cup expense.  This could get pretty ugly over there.  Oh. And that ref for the Brazil/Netherlands game was poor imo, lots of missed calls and lots of phantom calls as well, wouldn't have changed the outcome though.
