I got a blue level 20 scout rifle and it has the little "I" icon on the weapon portrait meaning it's (I think) new to The Dark Below.  The base damage is greater than vanilla scout rifles.  Is that expected?  I didn't know that "Dark Below" weapons would be more powerful.

I had not been playing much and thus was only level 22 when this xpack came out.  I started playing some and realized I could only do 1 mission without a group.  I've done some strikes and gotten better gear and am actually having fun, but without a group I see there's not much more to do.  Even with a group seems like you just do bounties and run strikes and maybe raid.

Well today I found out the devs wanted people to play the game on hard. Well then why not make that the default difficulty? I played the game wrong!

You start over now!

I'm already a bit peeved that I don't get an achievement for finishing on medium when some people wimped out and  dropped down to easy.

I know right?  Pansies!

rough start, beautiful 2nd half.  On to the Cardinals at home.  I'm feeling good about our chances.  Big run of good wins away and at home and AZ is running out of QB's.

Sorry Niners for wrecking your playoff chances. 

Trust me you didn't wreck it.  That was called implosion.  From coach to QB

Yep except the defense I guess, 3rd in the league.  Did someone email out the offensive play book to the other teams this year?  It looks like everybody has figured out the Niners scheme.

Everytime 49ers does the read option the defense sniffs it out.  It happened yesterday, happened against the Raiders, and many other times.  The 49ers read option is outplayed.  The 49ers need to develop Kap into a normal QB, because it's going to get worse.  You can only do that for so long until it's figured out.  Ask Vick.

Russel Wilson seems to do the read option just fine, thrives even.

So I'm through chapter 13, I believe. I'm actually liking the game more...
Spoiler for Hiden:
now that the Alien is gone. It was more of a nuisance than anything and now the game is playing a little more like a stealth game.

Unfortunately I read a spoiler last night that the Alien (or Aliens) come back. I don't know how they come back story-wise, but oh well, there's a surprise down the drain.

I really like the environment design and the story, and Ripley is a great character. One of the few game characters whose actions and abilities make perfect sense based on how the character has been presented to us. The gameplay itself is what I'm still trying to work out if I like. As I mentioned, the Alien I just found to be annoying. I could crouch walk around without making a sound and then invariably have it drop through the ceiling and impale me while I'm working on a fuse box or whatever.

And yeah, still not finding the game scary at all. I don't think this is the game's fault, because lots of people say they find this game very scary. I guess it's just not the kind of stuff I find scary. Things that tend to get to me are creepy things like messed up monsters and creepy environments, and yes, jump scares. This game has robots and clean hallways and things that will grab you off the floor as you walk by, something that works exactly once until you know to look out for it. But Silent Hill and Outlast and stuff like that, I can't deal with.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I also enjoyed the game when the alien left.  I felt like I could actually relax and take in the game more and not just be spooked out all the time.  I was spooked the whole time though.  Those other games scare me too.  I'm scared of all of it!!

Here’s a rundown of the reveal, listed in order of their collectible card number. (Asked if there was significance to the numbering, Abrams replied: “YES.”) Time to get on that, Bothan spies.

• #67 — Kylo Ren ignites his Lightsaber

• #74 — Rey on her Speeder

• #76 — Finn on the run

• #81 — Stormtroopers prepare for battle

• #88 — X-Wings in formation

Normal or medium or whatever they call it.

I did most of the game like that, but towards the end I went down to Easy so that I could just finish.

I understand that, but I would expect more professionalism from coach and the QB. It's ridiculous for Kaep to give one or two word answers to legit questions. Look, I watch the replay of many of the press conferences and obviously there are certain reporters who are just incredible dicks. Guys like Lowell Cohn and his amateur level son Grant, Tim Kawakami, Ann Killion to name a few. But there are other reporters who are respectful and ask questions I would not consider outrageous. As a fan, I want to hear what their thought process is. Look at the difference compared to Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. Things are bad and they face the questions and answer them honestly. The press doesn't seem to have any problems with them.

Kaep, when he's on, is an otherworldly talent, but as a fan it is so frustrating to see his behavior. He is so obsessed with this world is out to get me attitude that it's distracting. He should spend less time worrying about what people are saying to and about him and spend more time on figuring out how he can improve his game.

Whatever though. The whole season is a train wreck and could have been avoided by all parties involved. Everyone should share the blame.

Agreed.  These guys are making the team hard to root for.  Compared to the SF Giants it's night and day.

So throw away $$$, success, and overall good coaching (this  year excluded) because people can't be professional.  As ATB said, short sighted.  They won't understand how big of a mistake it will be until he's gone.

I tend to agree but they said the same thing about Mark Jackson and look at the Dubs under Kerr.

So far so good, I'm really liking it. It's basically just Far Cry 3 - Cry Harder, but I loved FC3 so it's all good.

First thing I did was set myself up for an alternate ending (major spoiler below):

Spoiler for Hiden:
At the beginning of the game, Pagan Min tells you to wait and he'll be right back. If you do wait (approximately 12-15 mins), he comes back, you get on a chopper together. He flies you to a shrine where you place your mother's urn and credits roll. If you just do what you're told, you don't have to deal with all the bullshit of actually playing 30 hours. I laughed out loud.



Is this for real?

I was thinking that too

Here's the bit I was remembering. I guess they didn't go into as much detail as I recalled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=uXvvc5MEqfE#t=90

At the end of the game Sully gives Nate his wedding ring back and he wears it for Elena, implying they are back together. There were probably other references to the ring in the game (Nate thinks he's lost it, I think) but I don't recall exactly where they were.

I thought it was pretty clear from U3 that they were married and something unsaid had happened.  He ends the game wearing a ring on his ring finger and hugging it out with Elena.

Man, that video reminds of how much they screwed up Elena's looks in the third game. She barely looks human, and not even close to what she looked like in the previous games. I hope they don't make this mistake in the new one.

Totally. Was there ever any explanation for why they screwed her look up so bad?
