From the IGN stream it sounds like there are a lot of options to it too.  So for instance you can set it to be in first person and have it drop to third whenever you go into cover like Rainbow Six if you want.   Also supposed to support left stick for sprint too.

Xur is by the Crucible vendors this week and is offering:

The Armamentarium Disc +136
Lucky Raspberry Int +140
Voidfang Vestments Str +128
Patience and Time
Helm Engram

He also reportedly has some kind of Halloween event item for sale if you talk to him while wearing the pumpkin on your head.
Bought and used the Xur item and it doesn't seem to do anything that I noticed.

Looking closer, there are actually two new strikes being added, but one is going to be a Playstation exclusive until the year two-thousand-and-everyone-is-done-playing-this.

Isn't one of the strikes already timed on PS4 too.   Has that made it to XB1 yet? I believe it was Dust Palace (one of my favorite strikes too.)

For 20 bucks, expansion really needs to add a new location.   If not another planet, another section of Earth at least, it doesn't even need to be as big as the existing locations.

I am replaying the original in hopes of finally beating it. I always get stuck on level 5 trying to follow the path of those trapdoors that close and open in a pattern. I have no rhythm, so those type of puzzles always get me.

So far, these haven't shown up much, and where present they just present damage to the party and not having to start over.

Briana can do that, she did before all this happened. I am not sure a Twitter hashtag and some gaming forums really amounts to that much and are worth the time.

I feel like there's some misunderstanding here.  The hashtag is used by the harassers, in part as a way to organize and call out targets.

It's a terrible thing. A huge number of people were trolled and continue to be trolled. The threats are embarrassing, the advertising bans are embarrassing, the ethics conversation is embarrassing. Anyone who actually understands how this started and what it's become should rightfully think that both sides, the 4chan trolls and the hashtaggers who continue to think this is a real issue, are a bunch of tools.
  I think you are misusing both sides there, as the trolls and hashtaggers are on the same side.

Not exactly. The trolls started the whole thing. The overwhelming majority of people using the hashtag are the ones who were fooled by the trolls into thinking it was a real thing. That includes #gamergate and the #notyourshield tag which got a lot of use as well.

They are still essentially allied though and are on the same side, the other side would be the so called SJWs, along with female game developers and journalists.

The movement was never legitimate, having been started by a jilted exboyfriend.  The movement has nothing to do with ethics in journalism as it frequently goes after
targets that have little to nothing to do with it and often ignores real issues of questionable ethics (barely a peep on the Warner Brothers Youtube paid branding for Mordor for instance.)

Politics has been intertwined with games for decades, that is nothing new.

For a show that's based on a Card Battle Game, Rage of Bahamut is surprisingly awesome.  In the running for best new anime of the year I'd say.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-meX7dpotzA

High fantasy, focusing on two bounty hunters, one noble, the other a scoundrel, who get rapped up in a potentially world ending scenario unbeknownst to them.

The first episode is a must watch at the very least, it's on Funimation's site.

From VentureBeat:


Interestingly enough, the Xbox One version of Destiny supposedly sold more than the PS4 version. But then again, Microsoft was giving a free game away that month with a console purchase, and the bundled PS4 version wasn't counted.


Yeah the Destiny sales by platform is tough to know without that PS4 bundle information.  I think Sony was claiming to be the #1 platform for it though.  Basically from the released information all we know is that the amount of (existing XB1 owners who purchased Destiny XB1 + the people that purchased an XB1 with a free copy of Destiny) >  existing PS4 owners who purchased Destiny PS4.   The XB1 free game was a sales promotion and not a bundle so the free game gets counted as part of NPD, while the PS4 Destiny bundle included the game in the box, so it's not counted.  Neither counts digital sales, but I would imagine that the % of digital purchases v. retail is going to be roughly the same on both consoles.

why do we even care or need to have an relationship element at all.  Stupid.

Because we are people and people enjoy relationships with other people?   icon_wink

Honestly I think it adds tremendously to the richness of a game world when you start to actually care more about the characters you are interacting with.  And if the game relationships are well developed, the way the characters react to you should also have more depth and nuance if there is a "relationship element."  More so if the relationship was developed because of choices I made in the game as opposed to just linearly pushed forward by a fixed storyline.

If it's all done right, it can be a major game changer IMHO.  I really enjoyed Alistair in DA and I have to admit I kind of had a crush on him (as much as you can have a crush on a computer character); he's one of the few game characters from any game I actually remember fondly.  I didn't know at the time that romance options weren't possible with him, but just on the chance they were, I always steered my gameplay decisions in that direction.

Back to DA:I, I'm a little disappointed that I can't get Cullen.  That Dorian guy looks lame and that bull thing looks scary.

I agree with you a little but lets be honest it is because sex sells.  Frodo and Sam had a very deep, nuanced, relationship without sex but that don't try to emulate that in Dragon Age.  Instead you get lot of different sex scenes.  (Dragon Age: Origins - All Romances/Sex Scenes)

I don't really have a problem with it but I don't think for a minute those scenes are in there so we get a deeper story.



I don't know, Bioware has done well with the platonic relationships as well.  While Garrus was romance-able for female Shepard, as male Shepard his friendship was extremely well handled.

Really want this, but since I haven't even finished all the DLC for the last game I'm holding off for a sale.  Let us know how it is after a couple days play time.  Did you pick ClapTrap as your class?

If you didn't play Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep you should really go back and play that one. It's so good.

It's good, but the gimmick it employs I thought was better used in Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, which I played just weeks before the Borderlands DLC came out.

Recently hit 70 with my Crusader, using a Lightning-Hammerdin build I found on the forums.  For the pros out there, what's the most efficient way to gear up for higher level torment?  I'm talking T2 and up, I can solo a T1 Greater Rift in under 15 minutes pretty easily.  Last time I tried T2 it was downright brutal, but I think my DPS was only around 150K.  I've since picked up quite a few set and legendary items, so now it's pushing 300K.  This morning I was actually able to clear a GR11.  When I started I don't think I made it past GR6.  If I'm not mistaken 12 is where torment 2 kicks in, so that's why I'm thinking I may need to gear up just a bit more to be safe.

One thing I find odd is I'm picking up legendary weapons, but their DPS is over 1K or more less than the yellow I picked up gambling when I started.  Do the higher stats only drop in torment?  Is it best to farm bosses in adventure mode on torment, run regular rifts, or run greater?

Run Greater Rifts and regular rifts in Torment.  I don't think your difficulty setting matters for greater rifts.  If you are looking for gear it's best to fail the trial so you start at GR1.

They just passed the 50% funding mark, $75,000, after just two days.

I just remembered why the developers being in Cambridge MA and their name, The Molasses Flood, sounded familiar. It's a homage to the Boston Molasses Disaster, of which I think I even have a book about, somewhere around here.

Quote
The Boston Molasses Disaster, also known as the Great Molasses Flood and the Great Boston Molasses Tragedy, occurred on January 15, 1919, in the North End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States. A large molasses storage tank burst, and a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 mph (56 km/h), killing 21 and injuring 150. The event has entered local folklore, and for decades afterward, residents claimed that on hot summer days, the area still smelled of molasses.

My grandfather got caught in that as a child and had a plate in his foot as a result.
