@  ermac666 : (14 April 2017 - 09:02 PM) There will come a time where they just can't rely on the base consoles anymore due to their weaker performance. I would like to see how devs deal with this as games get more graphically intense and complex.
@  ermac666 : (14 April 2017 - 09:03 PM) Ensuring compatability where base consoles don't get shafted is going to be tougher
@  Brandino : (15 April 2017 - 10:42 AM) booo spam bots
@  TonyDP : (19 April 2017 - 09:34 PM) So Bungie said the light level 400 Mythoclast would have a "generous drop rate" from the Vault of Glass in Destiny's Age of Triumph. I've now completed the raid 9 times and, surprise surprise, still no Vex. My raid team has now completed it 54 times (6 players x 3 weeks x 3 runs per week) and it has only dropped 3 times in total. I am sick of their BS. No Destiny 2 for me. Bungie can go fuck themselves.
@  colonel_j2020 : (20 April 2017 - 06:54 PM) I will quite likely play destiny 2 since I never played destiny.  That does sound sucky.  Reminds of my 20% drop rate in WOW raid.  Do raid 20 times = 0 drops :(
@  TonyDP : (20 April 2017 - 09:06 PM) With Bungie it goes beyond the lousy drop rates. We already had all the stuff and perks they're promoting in Age of Triumph and they took it all away for no good reason. Now they rehash it and try to make it look like they're giving us what we always wanted out of the kindness of their hearts.
@  Brandino : (20 April 2017 - 10:14 PM) I gave up on Destiny a year ago,  the game really wasn't worth the grind.  The rewards are so small for doing the same thing over and over and over again.
@  Goldenheart : (20 April 2017 - 11:54 PM) Destiny 2 already? But, but... I could've sworn Destiny was supposed to be a 10yr experience. Or something silly like that.
@  Goldenheart : (20 April 2017 - 11:55 PM) Maybe they meant it'll take them 10yrs to figure out the story & how to get drop rates right. :P
@  d2_s : (27 April 2017 - 05:57 AM) Sorry guys, the moderator control panel dowsnt work like it used to. It used to auto delete all posts for users marked as a Spammer, but it doesnt do that anymore. Royal PITA.
@  d2_s : (27 April 2017 - 06:38 AM) @Tony sucks about the vex drop rates. I havent tried farming for it yet, but so far everything else seems really easy to get. I recall having to do 30-40 Aetheon kills before getting a Vex on X1. I know one guy who farmed for it 2 years solid to get a year 1 Vex.
@  TonyDP : (27 April 2017 - 07:02 PM) d2, one of the guys in my group still has never gotten it. I'm now 0-12 in my quest for the Vex. The group I raid with have collectively done it 72 times (3 tries per week x 6 members x 4 weeks). Out of that it has only dropped 4 times or about 5.5% of the time. On the other hand I have gotten 7 legendary Visions of Confluence. Armor drops are also very stingy. Just Bungie's wonky RNG working as intended I guess.
@  d2_s : (30 April 2017 - 02:23 AM) That's some luck. 1st time I ran the new VoG we carried one guy through ... he gets Vex and Fate Bringer (Adept) in one run. Bungie RNG at it's finest. Fortunately, the adpet primaries from all raids are very easy to get and they are the main guns I want. Good luck chasing that Vex.
@  Brandino : (19 May 2017 - 07:04 PM) Did anyone check out the destiny 2 twitch stream?
@  TonyDP : (19 May 2017 - 07:38 PM) Didn't watch the livestream but saw some gameplay videos. Looks pretty but disappointed that consoles will be capped at 30fps and that all PvP content will be 4v4. Still leaning towards skipping this one (Destiny 1 just required too much of a time commitment).
@  Brandino : (21 May 2017 - 09:39 PM) I watched only tid bits of the live stream... read much more online.  I'm very skeptical... it seems like they copied a lot of multiplayer ideas from Halo 5 and aside from bigger levels... wasn't really sold on the single player content
@  d2_s : (23 May 2017 - 06:29 AM) I was really impressed with the live stream and am looking forward to the game.  The only disappointment to me was all PvP modes being 4v4. Seems like a big step backwards if you ask me.
@  d2_s : (23 May 2017 - 04:27 PM) And of course still no dedicated servers...PvE looks solid though..
@  TonyDP : (23 May 2017 - 09:04 PM) Also not wild about the new weapon loadout system: two primaries and either a special or a heavy. It feels like another attempt to get players to focus on primaries in PvP but compromises your options in PvE.
@  ermac666 : (24 May 2017 - 06:46 AM) Games I am looking forward to for the rest of 2017 are tekken 7, uncharted lost legacy dlc, COD WWII, sonic forces, middle earth shadow of war and marvel vs capcom infinite.

Going to have to give you a sub.[/quote]Actually I stream to both Youtube and Twitch:twitch.tv/thedirewolf35youtube.com/thedirewolf35Being streaming to Youtube exclusively for a long time because I couldn't stream to both at the quality I wanted.

They really promoted the heck out of it here. It doesn't really look like a gun (and I think that's deliberate) but once you have the headset on that is a non-issue. It has every button, stick and the d-pad of a standard DS4 and is very comfortable to hold. Not too many games support it right now (Farpoint, Dick Wilde and a forthcoming patch for Brookhaven Experiment) but it has gotten al...

It doesn't look bad at all and I'm glad it's more like Sonic generations - a game I enjoyed. I'll likely pick this one up when the price drops. I'm more interested in that other Sonic game - I've forgotten the name - that's just around the corner. Just give me a well executed side scrolling platform game with the verticality of the originals and I'll be happy.

They really should have just waited and launched with this feature. I'm just thankful all PS4 consoles are finally getting external hard drive support.

I have tried both Infamous games, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us. The Infamous games were always gorgeous and the HDR certainly does add to it, unfortunately those games do take a slight, but very notcable frame rate hit when maxing IQ. You can opt for a high rame rate option, which downgrades lighting and effects a tad - kind of defeats the purpose IMO.I am going to be honest, Unch...

@Tony It would be nice to catch up, it has been a while since we played together. When I resume playing again i'll look out for you.I totally hear you on skeleton keys. I haven't been going at it as hard as I used to, but I have 10 or so raid completions under my belt, which was enough to get all the weapons and full armor sets for all, but one of my guardians. I've 4 manned normal...

Did you root your phone? If so then you can block ads and do a lot more fun stuff.If not then ES File Explorer is what I use ... but I mostly create playlists and play off of those. Works good for me.As for games... I barely play any on the phone... the google store is 99% crap and so much of it runs ads and burns the battery big time. I have no good suggestions.

The only gripe would be the multiplayer part where the youtubers did not see each other... that's misleading. I didn't think the final product was something misleading like Gearbox had done with Aliens and Brothers in Arms in the past...I don't understand why people feel the need to buy day one... always wait a few weeks to see how it pans out in the end. Buyer beware!
