So Simo will finally have GH now? Unless he forgets to log in and buy one, or he happened to use all his strange coins in order to reroll some weapons that won't be relevant in a few weeks. :beer:


Ha. Here's the big joke RNG played on me: Gally dropped from a NF I ran Tuesday night. I was at the grown up table for all of three days before Xur had to go and burst my bubble.

Sorry about having to bail on our plans. But those guys bailing because of light switch are lame. Drunkz and I, with a last minute assist from io, did it with light switch. I'll be there next week. We got this.


Nah, no need to apologize. I totally get that if the better-half calls, you must answer. ;)

For the digital vanilla version of TTK, any reason to wait on the preorder or should I just do it now? There'us preorder bonuses right?


Yeah, you get a Suros pack and some special "Year One" stuff. It'll be nice to see you round the Tower again, Ryuu. :)

All good things, but dammit, why did I bother to ascend any of this $#@+???

I ascended my Will of Crota, Atheon Epilogue and Vestinian Dynasty to avoid taking fatebringer to 365. I actually don't think I have taken it out of my vault since HoW dropped. My goal is to never ascend it or use it again and it is going well so far.

Oh man... You are going to rock the next Iron Banner with that ascended AE.

Got my NFs done last night (with my ascended FB) and have nothing notable to show for it. Why am I still playing?

So, I should have known better, but I bought my first Judgements Chance last night: Got a heavy machine gun with void that has a chance to stun fallen captains. I suppose that will be useful for those times when I don't want to just kill them outright with Thunderlord. 😕


#12765930 Batman: Arkham Knight Announced (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Posted by simosaurus on 24 June 2015 - 01:40 PM

I think they are separate stories. Like you said, Catwoman's tied directly into the story via integration as the story progressed. These ones though tie in but not that way, as they are their own little contained stories you play from start to finish.

15% in and there is entirely way too much batmobile play in this. Only thing that's bothering me so far...and I was not one of those people whining about it being a feature in any of the games as I fucking knew they'd do something like this if they ever included it and as predicted I was right. Controls clunky and can just be a pain in the ass to maneuver at times, especially in the Riddler trials. Not bad for their first time as RS doesn't specialize in driving games but yeah way too much emphasis on it.


Thank you! It's not just me then. I had seen reviews and posts from others talking about how much fun the Batmobile was, but I almost rage quit 15 minutes into the game over that stupid thing. It's overpowered for the narrow, twisting streets of Gotham.


#12752451 Official Mass Effect: Andromeda Discussion (Hype/Speculation/Anticipation)

Posted by simosaurus on 17 June 2015 - 09:06 PM

The biggest question I have is returning characters. Not species, but specific people. Without knowing how this all starts, I can't think of good ways they can be involved. But, note, they said it happens "long after" the events of the OT. Many species live long lives.


Well, at least maybe the bootleg holographic Shepard will still be kicking around.

[grumble grumble]

I was all set to run the other 34 PoE I've been wanting to do all week when my internet went out last night.   :wall: I was so angry.  But, at least it got me thinking that I'm not missing much.  I mean, I have 3 toons to 34 and months to go before The Taken King.  I guess there's no rush to do anything.

 

That being said:  If anyone is up for a mid-afternoon PoE or something post Game of Thrones tonight, send me a message.

Sorry I missed your message until this morning.I would have like to do 34 PoE. I was nodding off I was so bored & couldn't find anything to do :(


I'd also like to do a couple more 34s and a 35s sometime this weekend. Need me some more E-light!

I've been running with a Judgment VI shotgun that I rerolled for solar damage and full auto and that thing is a beast. Range is minimal but if catch someone coming around a corner it destroys them. I had a Matador drop the other day but I haven't taken it for a spin yet.

I've been rather proud of how I'm holding up in IB. Played about 6 rounds yesterday and I'm now solidly in the 18-24 kills per game range. I feel silly for avoiding it for so long.

Keys! Yes, no more need to grind and hoard. In less then 30 minutes, I obtained 3 new keys without even opening a single chest. And with the stacking ammo syths, I reclaimed a ton of inventory space. Huzzah!


#12716344 Official CAG Destiny Thread - Rise of Iron

So last night playing a level 28 PoE, I actually had a Plan C drop as a reward in the post-game menu.  This wasn't from the middle chest, which I did not open.  Outside of the chest, I was not aware that there was a chance for exotic drops from the level 28, so that at least gives me a reason to play it occasionally.  

 

Also do you think it's worth wasting an armor core on that chest piece to get my character to 33 1/2? It really has no perks that interest me and I am more of an intellect/discipline guy. But right now that armor core is just going to waste unless he sales to pieces of armor in one week.

Plus is there anything out there that charts what the difference in time that your super, melee, and grenade recharge based on your intellect, discipline, and strength percentage?

I was going to hoard my cores waiting for something with a better roll, but then I figured, "What the heck" and just bought a couple chest pieces.  I figure it's the fastest route to level 34 because it gives me a better chance of success in the higher level PoE arenas.  Once I get through level 34 a few times, I'll have some e-light and I can use that to ascend armor in my inventory with better stats.

Got a Gally from the NF. Finally the RNG Overlords cut me a break.
