Question: I didn't get very far as Destiny's siren song lured me away, but the interface is very overwhelming and I felt like I really needed a manual.  Should I go directly after the first orc captain to progress the tutorial? My typical method is to do everything but what I'm directed to do until last.

Quote from: leo8877 on October 01, 2014, 01:25:19 AM

I would say do the first few story missions before you go exploring, they serve as the tutorial.

It's taken a long time to work up to captain, but it's worth it for the retirement benefits alone. Just 2 days to retirement!

So stoked for this, and perplexed how ATB cannot tell the difference between 60 and 30 FPS.   I get not being able to tell resolution differences all that much, but I find FPS differences to be quiet jarring actually

I thought they overdid it on the villain cameos but I really liked the first episode overall.  Hopefully the cameos were mainly just to try and hook viewers and they'll tone it down a bit in episode 2.  I never watched Southland so this is my introduction to McKenzie, and he seems pretty great for the role except for the annoying lack of rectangular glasses.

As for you ATB, that you claim not to be able to tell the difference between 60 fps and 30 fps tells me that you haven't actually played many 60 fps games. The difference is huge, though I have no problem playing games at 30 fps personally. For an example of of what kind of difference it makes, just look at The Last of Us. Most people found the PS4 version to be easier than the PS3 version (me included), and that's because of only two things: The improved controller and the improved framerate. It's not just a visual thing. A higher framerate also improves control latency, which means you can react quicker and make finer, more precise adjustments to your aim.

You tell me: I have recently played destiny, BF4 on XB1, Gears of War 3, COD Ghosts, Tombraider reboot whatever it's called, Dishonored, Guacamelee STCE,  Kinect Sports Rivals.

Forza 5 is 1080p/60fps, did you try that?

Paging Hark:

Quote from: Avynte from Penny Arcade
To anyone running the 200 fusion kills in nightfall, don't go into the mission. Run over to the vex/fallen war in the library, then across the wreck to the random fallen and farm those spawns.

The instances are private so they get bumped up to 28, but if you die you stay on planet. Took me ~30 minutes to knock that part out.
139  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Let's talk Iphone on: September 26, 2014, 06:00:03 PM
Just stopped by the Apple Store to check these things out in person.  The 6+ actually fit in my front pocket better than I expected, but I was wearing big-pocketed cargo shorts today.  I don't think it would be that comfortable in most of my jeans pockets, and I think it would be downright impossible to stow in some of my dress pants.

The 6- was comfortable in-pocket and in-hand, except for one handed use.  Browsing through some web pages and some system menus, it was immediately apparent that my thumb could no longer reach everywhere on the screen like it can on my 4s. 

So I'm left a bit torn between getting the 5s or the 6- this fall.  I guess I'll likely get the 6- and just get used to the different handling.

And all we got was a mote of light. Mmmkay. What am i supposed to do with that?


You use it to buy legendary gear from The Speaker.

Calling what the speaker sells legendary gear is a bit of a stretch.  It's more legendary aesthetic items.   Xur on the other hand will sell you a legendary engram for motes of light.

Who is xur? And is it one legendary per coin? Please say yes.

Xur appears only on Friday and Saturday each week in a new place in the Tower each week.  Right now he's near the gal who sells ships, one floor beneath her.  He sells nifty stuff mostly in exchange for coins, but you can also give him 25 motes for an exotic engram.  Unlike the other engrams, which can result in items worse quality than what the engram is, the exotic engram is guaranteed to give you an exotic item.  (Remember though that you can only equip one exotic weapon and one exotic armor at a time.)

At the Speaker, you can use motes to buy fancy decorative class items or fancy decorative emblems.  You will feel so spiffy displaying your exotic decorative items that your battle performance will increase 7-12%.

Are you not interested in levelling up the other two classes?  I'm a few levels below you and still happy with my progression rate, but if I stall out enough to get grumpy with my Hunter I'm really looking forward to seeing how Titan and Warlock play.  As much as Bladedancer really clicks with me, it's hard to not also be jealous of some of the feats I see the other classes pull off in PvP.

Honestly, I'm only logging in to play with you guys, but not seeing positive movement for my Warlock just irks me.

What do you mean by 'not seeing positive movement'?

Some missions have a heroic modifier that makes Warlocks constipated.

The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave.

I think the Rotten Tomatoes aggregation approach works much better than the Metacritic approach, but I think even that approach would have the same problem with niche games.

If I ever peek at metacritic for a game, I always at least look at the one line review summaries in addition to the big score number.  Just like a product on Amazon may have low ratings because "the shipping took too long and I ordered the wrong thing", you have to watch out for metacritic reviews like "I can't believe they didn't implement <feature that obviously doesn't belong in that kind of game>!"

Look up Loot Cave Farming, great for ingram farming.

He was specifically in need of Mars metal, which comes pretty quick in that chest loop.  Also comes in handy for the exotic bounty that needs you to find something in a Mars chest.

And I guess while I'm fielding calls as Hark's personal assistant...

Nice. Were you playing a Titan? Not sure if the other classes have as much force behind hits, or if it was just because he was airborne.

Hark attacked with the Bladedancer special attack.  There's not usually that much knockback, so I think the bad guy being airborne did have something to do with it.

I also finally got my first exotic bounty yesterday.  I had my choice of the fusion rifle, the pulse rifle, and the machine gun.  I went with the MG since I don't care for fusion rifles and Hark seemed to hate the pulse rifle, but the first step of my bounty is to farm chests on Mars and I haven't even gotten to Venus in the storyline yet.   retard   

I'm happy to do some although I'm guessing you are playing late eastern time.

Yeah, have houseguests and other craziness right now, so I usually can't get on until past midnight eastern.  There's a slight chance I'll be able to sneak some time in in the early afternoon today, though.

It just occurred to me that this game has built in powerlevelling for your other two classes.  Since equipment isn't soulbound, you can just set aside some hand-me-downs from your main and instantly level up your alts from 20 to a level almost as high as your main.

I guess they want the players to spend most of their time in the endgame 20+ content, but it still seems a little contrary for a treadmill levelling game to give such big treadmill shortcuts.

Isn't gear class specific?

Maybe for the highfalutin purple equipped elite like you!  Paupers like me with blue equipment don't have that inconvenience yet.  I'd cry for you, but I already shed all my tears for Hark having the inconvenience of too many exotic bounties at once. ; )

(I just looked at your equipment and your Future War Cult helmet is your only armor item that's not class specific.)

Kill 20 Guardians with headshots with a Scout Riflt
Collect items from Fallen
Run two strikes and kill specific mobs

So, after all this is done a special mission is supposed to open?

It looks like you have to earn a certain amount of queen's favor. I'm hoping they refresh tomorrow so I can ignore the headshot ones.

You'll be happy to know that there's a new headshot bounty for the queen today!

On another note:  What the hell do I spend my glimmer on after level 20?  Buy lots of ships?  It seems like all the purchasable equipment upgrades cost marks instead of glimmer.

On another another note: Holy hell is the Bladedancer's blink teleport disorienting.  I'm trying to get used to it due to its great potential in combat, but when I'm aiming for one place and end up teleporting myself onto some random other ledge or teleport my face into a wall, it can almost be nauseating.  I've tried some "clever" moves like teleporting behind someone so I could spin around and backstab them, only to just spin around ineffectually trying to find them after the teleport.  I've also had some really impressive moments of teleporting out of the map boundaries that I'm sure will make the highlight reel.

How do I join one of the crucible guilds? Visited one yesterday and there was no prompt

Look for the Warlock armband for sale at the faction of your choice.  There should be two options, I think 2500 glimmer each.  If you didn't have that much cash on hand, they'd be greyed out like the other items and easy to overlook.  Bear in mind that you don't need to join a faction.  Levelling up the default Vanguard and Crucible factions also gets you good stuff.

Where are the daily missions found?
On the ship travel screen, you'll see some icons on the left side that indicate the daily and weekly things you have available.  Not all of them open up right at 20, IIRC.

Quote
In the crucible, when melee is fully charged is it a one hit kill?  (I'm a warlock)  I seem to go down alot even with fully charged shields from melee hits.
I don't know about Warlocks, but with Bladedancer the charged melee ability is only a guaranteed one hit kill if I take the backstabby ability and do indeed stab from behind.  I'm 73% sure that the Titan shoulder charge is the only melee attack that's a one hit kill from the front on a full health target (aside from activated special abilities).

What does energy drain do practically in the MP?
Looks like it makes your grenades recharge faster, increases your movement speed, heals you, or reduces your super cooldown, depending on the modifier you have selected.
