I've been gaming on my pc / gtx 1080 exclusively for a couple months.  I tried to start playing a console game for a change (H:ZD dlc on ps4 pro) and the 20-30 fps feels terrible.  Have I been ruined?

peasant ville is the best ville.

Missed booby night

Those who missed Bloody Boobs night missed a game that will go into Bro History with King Arthur's Gold and Masked Shooters 2. 

 

...

 

We will almost certainly never play it again.

Thanks Syntax. Learning about the Bloody Boobs experience was undoubtedly more interesting than any sale fodder that Valve just threw at us.

https://chrono.gg has another historic low today... Super Blood Hockey for $5.

Reviews have been really good for it... It's still a newish title so I'm not sure if I want it now or will wait to see if it's bundled.

Bought using $15 worth of Amazon Gift Cards via zSilver rewards.  $11 for Destiny 2 is a price point I can experiment with.

Re: Destiny 2.  Just asking as I have not kept up, but what is the latest controversy with Destiny 2 that google news wants me to read articles about the players being upset?  It appears that Bungie had to cancel a stream of an upcoming expansion to try to address player concerns.  Are the main points are the variation in drops and the experience system?

 

Re:Fortnite/Epic drama

https://kotaku.com/1...-him-1820752579

Basically Epic had to make a decision whether to drop a DMCA claim against someone that was putting on youtube a video of him cheating on fortnite and showing people how to get said cheat.  Person filed DCMA counterclaim  as Epic wanted the video pulled and person put another video up.  By filing the DCMA counterclaim, EPIC was forced to either pursue or drop the issue.  Now comes the twist, the person is 14 years old and his Mother decided to defend him.  Normally, I would say that corporations may win a legal battle, but loose more with the publicity.  I have read comments on multiple sites and the views are not all the same.  Most non-players are upset that a company is suing a 14 year (realistically could be refiled against parents and could result in $150,000).  However, a lot of gamers that play multiplayer are supportive of Epic in this case.  Cheating and toxic environments are pervasive in mutliplayer games and are reasons why players move onto different games.  In this case, I think that if my child was involved, I would be embarrassed and would have punished them myself AFTER I had them take down the videos and write an apology/post an apology video to Epic.

Did they raise the experience grind for loot boxes up to 320,000 yet?

See Yong's last two videos about Destiny 2 game was lying about XP amount being displayed and earned were different.

 

Once you hit Level 20 soft-cap, XP is now gained for loot box earning system.

 

Before the "fix" - players were being lied to amount XP earned, when repeating activities it was secretly scaling you down each time:

 

After the scaling "fix" - XP requirement for loot boxes was secretly jumped from 80,000 to now 160,000:

 

Basically, game's trying to get you to buy micro-transactions / loot boxes to bypass the grinding to fill up the XP bar.

Honestly, the game (D2) has problems but the XP thing in particular is overblown.  XP progress only matters for the first 6 hours you play the game and it goes more than quick enough both before and after the XP changes.  I think a lot of players have turned this into an outcry because they are upset about the real problems.  Namely, several steps back from the improvements made during D1, boring loot and pvp experiences, and a lack of end-game content to give the most dedicated players reasons to keep playing.

Maybe. Who knows.  Who cares?  Realistically, we'll play it for a month and move on.  That's why my price point was around ten bucks.

Newegg is being an asshole about giving me my free Destiny 2 with purchase of a card because I bought through their eBay store instead of directly on Newegg, even though this is an Nvidia promotion.  Not sure how that's going to turn out or whether I'm going to have to send it back and rebuy it on Newegg directly or what.  Seems stupid and seems more logical they would just give me a damn code, but you never know with these corporations and the stupid shit they do.  Wish I had this resolved as I might have jumped on Destiny 2 at this price.

I had the same problem when I bought my gigabyte 1080 from their ebay store.  I got a good deal on the card so I just took the $23 loss of buying a key elsewhere.

It just sounds like once you hit Level 20 and actually finish the main campaign - eh, time to start a new character and start over (to do a new character & build); or wait until the next expansion/DLC comes out.

 

The XP loot box system once you hit Level 20 just sounds like a complete waste of time. This all wouldn't be so bad, if they didn't lie to the player twice already. I have no problem w/ throttling if you repeat activities b/c you will be more powerful each time around (if leveling up requirements stays static) - but not so that it's done in such a way they want you to actually buy loot boxes. Removing the scale, but flat-out increasing the to leveling-up requirement from 80,000 to 160,000 is crap; even more so that it was done secretly. It had to take players using 3rd party app's to figure this crap out & have evidence that things were amiss.

 

EDIT:

I would so be in for $10, also. I'd guess hitting Level 20 and finishing the campaign - yeah, it's worth it for that.
