@  d2_s : (06 September 2017 - 04:16 PM) @Space sorry not to address you. The above post was for you too :)
@  d2_s : (06 September 2017 - 04:19 PM) As a side note, the brief bit I did get to play was very enjoyable. The patrol zones are much bigger, more dense and more action packed.  My issues started after arriving in the 1st major patrol zone. After 1-2 hours there my issues started and the game hasn't lasted 5 minutes since.
@  ermac666 : (07 September 2017 - 10:15 AM) Knack 2 is also out for those who are into it. It looks good, and the game is sold at a cheaper price which is nice. Game seems much improved over knack 1.
@  d2_s : (08 September 2017 - 04:35 AM) Getting another PS4 Pro seemed to do the trick for me. Must be a minor hardware error or something. The 2nd one I bought is the same model. Seems quite a few people are affected by this problem.
@  Brandino : (09 September 2017 - 01:44 AM) So far Destiny 2 has been fun to play.  The graphics definitely are a notch higher and the levels don't seem so sparse and quiet.
@  TonyDP : (10 September 2017 - 09:05 PM) I've found the difficulty to be better balanced on the activities I've played so far. I tend to play solo a lot and I never really felt overwhelmed; when my guardian died it was usually because I didn't take my time and tried rushing ahead. The loot drop rate is pretty good too. I already have about a dozen exotics and have gotten enough legendaries that my Warlock has all legendary/exotic gear equipped
@  TonyDP : (10 September 2017 - 09:06 PM) and I have about 100 legendary shards in the bank. Not bad for 5 days; way way better than the early days of Destiny 1.
@  Goldenheart : (12 September 2017 - 06:30 PM) So... interesting thing happened. We got a new apartment, looked up the local internet providers, dialed Comcast's phone number, and got a message saying the call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried the # on her phone. Same message. We're thinking it's very odd such a big company can't get its own phone number right. We call a 3rd time using an app that acts like a phone. Got right through. It seems AT&T doesn't like its customers dialing Comcast.  :crazy:
@  Brandino : (13 September 2017 - 12:14 AM) I'm finding Destiny 2 as more of an expansion then a true sequel.  It's fun and they fixed a lot of mistakes from the first.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 10:11 AM) Glad to hear Destiny on PS4 is now working for you d2.  You should join LeadBetter and me sometime.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 02:24 PM) And I'm guessing you already have a clan in mind for PS4 Destiny, but if not, you're welcome to join ours.  So far it's myself, LeadBetter, and a group of people that I played a lot of Titanfall 2 with.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:34 PM) @Space cheers. I'm with the same clan I was in the original Destiny. We should play, I wouldn't mind doing the nightfall and rat king quest with you guys if you haven't done them already. Haven't had a chance  to play much this week, but should be ok this weekend.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:35 PM) Happy to raid with you guys too if condtions permit.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:16 PM) So... odd thing happened. We got a new apartment in Philly. I tried to call Comcast to ask about their internet & got a message that my call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried & got the same message. I thought it odd such a big company couldn't get their own ph# right. Then, we dialed using an app that acted like a phone. We got right through. Seems AT&T doesn't like their customers dialing comcast.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) & then I tried calling to end internet service at the old house & the computer hung up on me! A week later, I made it back to the old house & found the modem dead! No lights, nothing.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) old house has AT&T internet & AT&T modem.
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:14 PM) It's time for my semi-annual check-in at HDTV Arcade lol
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:17 PM) I've been helping beta test the Steam version of Killer Instinct lately. Speaking of KI, I'm actually going to a tournament on September 30th here in Raleigh, NC. It's called "The Fall Classic." Wish me luck!
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:00 AM) Speaking of fighting games, marvel vs capcom: infinite is out for ps4/pro, XB1 and PC. It plays great with more modes than SFV at launch. I am still getting used to the gem system.
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:02 AM) The only downside is that future dlc characters are behind a pay wall, and there are no x-men characters as 20th century fox now owns the x-men licence from what I understand.

New Phone - Looking for music player and game suggestions

So I finally updated my phone.  It's been about four years, because I was in an agreement that entitled me unlimited data.  I could have left the contract or upgraded my phone at any time, but I decided not to for years, because it would have also meant leaving the agreement.  

Well, the last straw was me missing a text message because someone inserted a picture that my phone didn't recognize, so I ended up deciding that unlimited 3G You Tube on a tiny screen wasn't worth having a now very outdated phone.  I also wasn't able to install or use many different apps, due to having an outdated OS.  

So now I have a phone with an SD card slot that can handle a sizable portion of data, and I'd like to start using it as an MP3 player.  The problem is that I'm running stock android, and that doesn't even include a file explorer program.  Google play looks like it's more of a streaming service, so I don't want that either.

My new phone agreement limits me to one gig of data per month, but I do have unlimited wifi, text, and calls.  It's 20 dollars a month with no contract.  I just had to buy the phone.  If you're interested, I can elaborate.

Anyhow, based on my current usage, that data limit will be fine for my needs, but I don't want a music app that is going to connect online in any way.  No ads, no artist bios, no cover art downloading in the background.  Nothing but my own files, and a folder view for searching through them.

Again, ads can't be a thing, but I wouldn't mind paying a bit if a program was good enough.  Free would be nice, too, but isn't a requirement.

With that in mind, what music player apps have you used, and what would you suggest?

Also, what games would you recommend?

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.
