The Director update on Destiny makes it sound like they're in a weird place. The content is planned out too far ahead so we have another 6 months of the terribly balance Battle Pass that strongly favors grinding brain-dead easy challenges over a variety of content, and it sounds like the issue of timed content disappearing forever isn't changing until after that as well. This will likely keep me from bothering with the next 2 seasons. I was never that big on Trials having played a good chunk of it in D1. The D2 Trials were trash but I'm sure they'll be fine now.

The fact that they acknowledge how ridiculously bad the new player experience is also sticks out. Basically you play through the opening mission of D1 one then have free reign to go to most planets and do a large chunk of activities with no guidance, and even start the main story progression you have to go UNPROMPTED to a seemingly random vendor (why the shipwright and not Zavala or Ikora?). That sounds like something that would be fixed with a next gen launch.

The tone of the rest of the update also makes me think we won't be seeing a Destiny 3, rather continuing D2 for the rest of the lifespan of the series as one platform.


I never played Trials but I am interested to see how a weekend event translates into a season, if that’s the seasonal activity.

Honestly it seems like perfect timing for the Division 2 expansion. Is there a CAG clan?

I'm surprised so many people seem to like the new dashboard. Everything is less readily accessible now, more clicks and menus for things. And being visually impaired, it makes it more difficult. Like accessing my non installed games, per example.

 

So as far as i'm concerned it's a garbage design.

I'm not a huge fan of the new dashboard upon first use, but I'm going to give it some more time before passing full judgement.

There's a large menu for all games. I'm thinking 4 presses?

And not liking the Addams Family giveaway as I'm going to acquire it to watch, but thank you for doing it.

If you still have Ark installed from the other day and wanted some more achievements someone found a new console command that saves so much time for a good chunk of the achievements for getting all the "explorer notes". Seriously this one was almost as annoying as doing it legit before so tedious.

 

To make this nice and simple, pause the game, enable the console (cn_LB.png+cn_RB.png+cn_X.png+cn_Y.png) and type GiveAllExplorerNotes

The game may freeze for quite a while, but leave it running and eventually it will sort itself out and your achievement(s) will unlock.

Super Late Edit but this also bypasses the restriction that due to a title update you had to buy the $20 DLC to complete the achievements in the game now

So...any Destiny 1 players in here that miss ToO?

 

 

I went to the Lighthouse exactly once in my Destiny career and I look forward to that never changing. Damn if I don’t love Bungie ViDocs though.

Playing GTA back in the day: go on rampages, kill a bunch of pedestrians.

Playing GTA5 now as an adult: wait for my stupid son Jimmy to sit down in my car and pull out my gun and tell the screen "you better hope there's no permadeath" and ruin the mission by shooting him in the head.

$31 dollar DLC with Gamepass, $40 without. This company kinda sucks.

Ark has console commands like a PC game, you could literally get one in a few seconds. This is the first one from the TrueAchievements walk through. Unfortunately since a title update they changed it so you can't get all of them now unless you buy some DLC. You can get the vast majority though.

 

For fun, let's pop a strange one first. Pause, then press (simultaneously) cn_X.png + cn_Y.png + cn_LB.png + cn_RB.png. Next, enter this code, and press ADMIN COMMAND: cheat setplayerpos 0 340000 -49000
No need to resume, it will pop in the pause menu.

Thanks, this worked. The one for changing the time of day to 06:00:00 didn't work for me. 

 

And why is it that I downloaded Ark yesterday and it needed a 14gb update today?

Because they just patched in an update today, among the features removing the ridiculous Genesis Pass restriction.

Have run watching mostly cutscenes for 2 hours! I jest, but I barely made it into Chapter 2 after playing a few hours today. I really hope they continue the series after Kiwami 2 on the XB.

I bought the base game when it was in the preview program and played a couple hours but was bummed when they released paid DLC when the game wasn't considered complete.

To clarify, Ark has had a title update that made the collectibles once again obtainable without buying dlc. I just put in the command for explorer notes and it popped 12 achievements for me. The achievement for taming all creatures has also been cleaned up and now only requires 9 commands opposed to the 90 it took before the title update. 

 

Glad to have finished this game and wipe the 90gb off my hd

Hey so uhh yeah friendly FYI to my fellow CAG peeps out there. Yakuza 0 does not have an auto save function. Yeah. Good stuff. Great to find out after doing the aforementioned ~2 hours worth of cutscene heavy intro. Loving it. So, yeah, check the save function. Not sure where it is. Gonna go cry myself to sleep. Be good, everyone.

Ha a few seconds into the intro I decided I'm going to probably like this Yakuza game from the crazy Castlevania like guitar song. Guess I better figure out the save thing.

You save at the phone booths with a giant S over them. Besides that here's some other tips...

When fighting Mr.Shakedown, dumb the difficulty down to easy. His health and attacks get stronger each time you beat him to the point where if your health isn't fully upgraded he can one hit KO you when he's in burning mode on normal. While your attacks themselves do greatly minimal damage.

Also if you're going for all the substories, just know the last two are ridiculously cheap. They're a boss fight for each character and even on easy they have one hit kill attacks and if they're not one instant kill, they stun you leaving you open for a one hit kill and they have nine or so long health bars.

I might be interested. Ark is one of the (many) games I plan on playing with my girlfriend. But that damn backlog is so big.

 

 

 

 

I'm liking the new dash except for one large issue, they broke background network transfers. I used to be able to turn off both consoles once the network transfer started, but I noticed when I turned off the source console, the transfer died. Never said installation stopped (only waited 2ish minutes) but there was no more progress and the transfer speed disappeared. Tried multiple times.

Woof. Definitely ain't doing that then. At least Mr. Shakedown is like a foot taller than everyone else and can be spotted.

I bought Nier and the Dooms. Gotta stock up on games Incase we are playing our backlogs due to coronavirus.

I was listening to Podcast Unlocked, they are thinking Series X will be $600. If it is, I think I’ll pass for a while. $600 is too much for any console IMO, I’ll wait for its price drop. $600 is getting into PC building range and that seems like to high.

I can't stand McCaffery on that podcast, he's so stuck in the Halo 2 era of xbox. I think he does a good job on the IGN Unfiltered interview podcast oddly, but on Unlocked he seems so out of touch. I just can't see the machine at any price point above the PS5 so I think it's $499, because Sony isn't going to do a PS3 again. It was interesting later in that episode they brought up how much of a loss MS took on the OG Xbox just to buy market share. I personally feel they are back in that position after the worst case scenario with Xbox One this generation so I can see them eating the cost. Why would they have all these initiatives like Gamepass and Xcloud and then go out and then instantly deflate all their current positive buzz and momentum when they go out and say hey that console we are hyping everyone on is $600 and the competitor that kicked our ass is $100 lower? I think the Xbox One X was made just to keep the bit of Xbox loyalists they had in the fold while they geared up for this moment. They can eat the hardware cost right now and recoup it through Gamepass and Xcloud subs. It will be interesting for sure to see what happens when either of them shows their hand first on price.

All this Yakuza talk makes me want to go play it, I have the whole series on PS4 but have only played 0 and got the platinum and had a blast doing it, but it's easily a 100+ hour game to do everything.  If you do go for all the achievements you are going to have to learn to play Mahjong.  It might seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, you might find yourself firing up the game just to play some Mahjong matches.  It really is that fun.  There are some other weird Japanese tabletop games in there too, but you can just stumble your way through those.

 

As for the tough bosses, there is also a hidden one that even in end game when you are OP is insanely tough.  I'm not sure if this is something in all of them but Fist of the North Star also had a similar boss as well.  Anyway, the game is super satisfying to 100%, just finding all the things you need to do to unlock every side story is crazy.  Oh and I loved the mini games like the Hostess Club, but hated the batting cages.  I nearly through my controller over that one.  Anyway, glad Xbox gamers finally get to enjoy this gem.
