Level 10 at last! Unlocks additional "cards hands" you can preset and the first unlock in the all important, "let me act like I'm 12 years old again" Diorama.  icon_biggrin

And in the "every dog has its day category":


Battlefront Multiplayer Modes Page:

Now that I'm playing multiplayer Battlefront regularly, I've come around to thinking my favorite modes are:
Drop Zone
This is 8 vs. 8 on imho really cool, tight maps that all have interesting nooks, crannies, paths, walkways etc.

I'm not crazy about the Sullust-based map. For me, too many easy sightlines for snipers and I find it hard sometimes to just survive long enough to do anything. I did have more fun on it after a few tries.

Endor is probably my favorite Supremacy map -- I think in part that's because the forest mushes down sightlines, and while you have Walkers and Speeders to deal with, I haven't noticed much if any aircraft. Most of my funnest gameplay videos are in that map in Supremacy.  Hoth gets insane outdoors in particular -- it's fun but my highest death counts seem to be there.
The other modes are fine by me, I just feel like I have the most fun with the above two, and they're the ones I play the most often.

My least favorite might be Hero Hunt, mainly because it's really difficult to get the final killing blow on a Hero toon, and so regularly maybe only two players in a game ever get to be the hero. I think perhaps it might be more fair if the player who did the most DMG to the hero then was awarded the chance to play as one. Or heck, even if it just alternated initially until everyone got to play as a Hero once.

I did re-visit the flying stuff. Finally completed training, and kb/mouse feels a little better to me with practice. I still can't do much of anything in the Squadron MP mode. I can get maybe 2-3 "AI kills" via the missiles, but you're only credit with a kill for taking an enemy out with laser blasts.

Hmm, I guess I've been lucky, I've always gotten my GMG Steam key ahead of release, although sometimes just by hours.

And in other news, this was just posted by the developer on the Steam JC3 new page:

Quick note about Green Man Gaming: keys for preorder games are frequently unavailable until midway through release day.  There was also a major issue just last week where Star Wars: Battlefront preorders couldn't be fulfilled until a few days after release.

I personally feel that 23% savings (~$14) is well worth a small delay, but anyone intent on playing Just Cause 3 on release day might want to take Steam up on their current 10% discount.

Getting the monitor in store tomorrow. Video card should come Mon or Tuesday. I'm excited. Microcenter scared me. They cancelled out the Chicago order saying it was sold out. I couldn't find it for a bit. But then a store in the burbs had it, so I'm all set.

Well, on this black Friday I bit the bullet and went for it. Microcenter has the Acer XB 280hk on sale for $499. And of course I can't leave my trusty gtx770 in there to power that, so I got an MSI GTX 980. So we shall see how all this works out in a few days. Picking the monitor up in store but getting the gpu from New Egg. Hope my normal web surfing stuff doesn't look too small.

Looking forward to your impressions.  I'm budgeting my PC dollars for VR at the moment (I'll need a new vid card as I'm running a GTX 670) but will need to upgrade my monitor at some point.

Has anyone been taking their power armor off? There was one point where I got down to my last power core but then almost immediately found a batch of 4.

For me the question should be, has anyone used the power armor?  I only used it at the beginning of the game where they tell you to.  After that it sits in the first settlement, and since then I've been all man

I've used it for a couple of really tough missions near the coast, but otherwise I prefer to leave it off. It costs quite a lot of resources to repair. However, even the power armor skeleton is useful. I'm about 70 hours into the campaign and there have been missions that would have been a lot easier with the power armor, but so far I'm enjoying the challenge.

Have it pre-ordered on PS4 (can't argue with 20% off) and looking forward to tearing down the government of whatever country we are going. They upped the destructive capability.

OK, after watching the first hour (skimming) that Avalanche put out, I'm back in. Nevermind. Come on, Tuesday!
