I'm considering dropping my LE PS4 copy and getting a PS3 Digital copy now that the upgrade to PS4 is free.  Going digital with this game means I get it without the hassle of waiting on delivery and also saving about $20. 

Why not just order the digital guardian on ps4?

Cool, thanks naednek.  I had all the Grimoires but none of the other stuff. 

I don't even know wtf a Grimoire or Shader is in relation to Destiny, and I don't even know if I'll be buying the game, but I'll be damned if I won't enter any free code available!  smile

iirc Grimoire is like  an encyclopedia of all things Destiny universe.  You can read up on lore, backstory, etc.

They have supposably addresses the issue.  I'm sending mine in for repair/replacement as soon as my new white controller is delivered.

I saw the white ones in a store the other day, they looked good.  I think the controllers are much improved, my new one has no squeaking at all and the sticks feel like they aren't covered anymore, but instead are made of the grip material. 

Also, now that pre-loads are the standard for new releases, I don't think I'll ever buy a disc game again.  It's so nice to just have it ready to go on release day without having to go outside and worry about bears or lions!

Sounds like some people in here have really drunk the koolaid. I haven't been following very closely. Is this going to be like the next Halo or COD or something? Not in terms of game play but in terms of being "the" game of the generation.

Just a FPS MMO by the makers of Halo.

I'm coming up on 7 years in November.  I told myself that if my body needed the drug, then I would give it that and work on breaking the habit.  For a couple months I used the patch sparingly.  Whenever I felt I needed it and I worked on breaking the habit of smoking.  I would chew gum or go running or do pushups.  After about 2 months I stopped the patch too.  Haven't looked back and can't believe I ever smoked to begin with.  Good luck you can do it!

Wilson is just ridiculous.  If I'm starting  team, I'd take him first pick.  Also how are the seahawks gonna live without Lynch next season (likely salary cap casualty).  It was clear the backup guys can't do what he does it's crazy.  Also Percy Harvin.  If he stays healthy....man.  Sad times to be a Niners fan and watch Seattle dismantle a team so easily.  Hard to remember losing by one play to them up there after Seattle's last two beatdowns of opponents.

Also you can be in multiple clans

Sent request. Will be on team PS4. Also sent request to Caine.

I think this is the first xbone preload, so they must be very excited!

So my controller grip is peeling and I have the PS protection plan.  I called support and they say it is covered, but you have to send the controller in to them and they have to verify it was not tampered with and they send you a new one.  2-3 weeks turn around time!!! 

Anyone know if they have addressed the issue if I just go buy a new one?

I also got my first legendary, which I only ever got in vanilla after 1 3/4 playthroughs and got to send another out to someone.  I love the faster leveling at expert, even though the loot tends to have a shorter lifespan before I find something to replace it.  Still, so much fun.  

I think I sent one out to you today

If you're not mowing stuff down as a wizard, you've simply not got good enough equipment. With Disintegrate I can slaughter large groups of enemies before they have a sliver of a chance of reaching me, and this is on Master. Before I got good weapons though, it was harder. Some parts of my leveling process were tougher than others, but the wizard is plenty capable of destroying the opposition.

I've got some pretty good loot now and am steam rolling with the wiz at level 67 on Master.  I still feel like the abilities are weird, and I only use 1 active spell really.

You can expect a nemesis from me at some point, but admittedly, it shouldn't pose much challenge.  I turned it up to Elite difficulty and got ganked by a gang of blues. 

I wonder if they scale to the players game they invade?

I'm having trouble finding abilities that click with the wizard.  My crusader and WD (and before that Barb and Monk) are tearing it up.  What are people using and liking with the wiz?  I'm finding the X abilities to be really crappy and I am constantly out of arcane energy to use R2 abilities.

Use items that improve your arcane energy and recharge rate, then use either arcane torrent or disintegrate. I used the former for a few levels, then the latter for the majority of my way to level 70, only interrupted by that frost beam power for a while when I got a legendary that made it go through enemies.

The 2.1 patch should roughly double your damage output, btw.

Thanks, maybe I'll shelf the wiz.  I've twinked but it's still not the same as the other classes who were mowing stuff down.

There was a developer video a couple or so weeks ago that addressed the system changes that are coming with ACU and it discussed the changes in the parkour system in detail. Frankly it's what convinced me to preorder.

It's sucky that the release is being delayed, my 35th wedding anniversary is on the 16th and I doubt my wife will be thrilled with me wanting to spend the day gaming icon_wink

Quote from: JayDee on August 28, 2014, 07:09:10 PM

Playing this thing basically solo and I'm having a blast still and I'm still only in Act III and level 41. Haven't even hit the good stuff yet.

I'm right about the same point.  It's farther than I made it playing the PC version originally, so I'm glad to hear "the good stuff" is yet to come.  smile

I've had gifts fall for people who are not online.  No nemesis invasion yet.

Thank you to Leo for pushing the edge of the envelope in the Torment difficulties so we can all experience the nemesis system  icon_smile

The music/sound effects that warn of an impending nemesis invasion are awesome.  Immediate adrenaline rush.

Man I started a wizard and I'm getting my ass handed to me.  Sorry to everyone who is getting invaded regularly.  My Crusader and WD fared much better than this glass (non) cannon wizard!  I've even moved down and the wiz is still getting owned pretty regularly.

I need to forgo my usual routine and skip all the exploration stuff.  So glad that they let you start at higher difficulties though.  I only got enough time to bring my crusader up to level 13.  You do notice how different this is from D3 at launch though.  Loot tables are much better now.

Oh yeah they changed loot considerably.  Drops are great for the most part now.

Just hit Act III and the shine is starting to wear off just a tad. The problem is that the game is just too damn easy on Expert. I may have just been super lucky with loot drops, but I have been two-shotting stuff since the end of Act I. Every boss fight so far has been a joke.

At this point I'm ready to just blow through the rest of the game and open up Adventure mode and harder difficulties.

You can increase your difficulty up to 1 level from whatever you launch the session as, so you should be able to go higher difficulty now.   

Edit: nm I guess you do have to finish or hit level 60

I meant the season as a whole, I was satisfied with my ending.  I read about the different endings and imo none of them would change the experience.

Oh and "video" power sucks so far so I don't even expect to use it much.

I had the same immediate impression, but it quickly grew into my favorite power.
I sucks early on but gets better once you power it up.  I hated it too until I did that. 

Same, after getting some more powers I actually used it most of the time.  Especially when traveling it was my favorite!
Being able to hover strafe with an attack that is essentially a machine gun was effective (and fun).  It's been awhile, but I think video is the power that lets you stealth kill/subdue?  I used that a lot zipping in to take people out without getting hammered.     

Yeah that stealth subdue was great!

Regarding adventure mode and bounties, do I need to complete all 5 bounties in an act during the same play session to get a cache?  I give it a try last night and completed 2 bounties, but needed to shut down and do something else.  When I started up again later that night those 2 completed bounties were gone. 

You need to complete all five if you're on the XB1 you should be able to switch to another app and come back to it in later as I've done this several times.  I'm not sure if you but the XB1 to sleep if it will work

It's per game session, so if you return to menu then the bounties reset.

That's based off of Diablo 3's secret level, Whimsyshire. Here's a guide on how to reach it. I'm not sure if these steps are still valid though, after all the patching. I think there's a cow level too, which is even more hidden.

I just figured it was based off of the backlash of that very first screen from like 10 years ago with the rainbow in the mist behind the bridge from Act 1.
