I played some domination rounds today with a stacked 100 xp boost so I could finally get that ace dmr unlocked. DX.. you were right about that gun. Hardly any recoil and insanely accurate. Even without playing for a couple months I realized I lost no skill in the game. Unfortunately bf4 feels kind of boring now unless I'm playing with a friend.

I feel you. but I think I've burnt myself out on competitive mutliplayer FPS. As fun as I thought Titanfall was, I didn't play it for very long even though I really enjoyed it. I don't think I'll be getting Hardline either. I've been engulfed in GW2 as a refreshing change, and while Destiny is a FPS, it has GW2 social elements which I believe they took a lot of inspiration from... I've even seen a few other random people leave the same sentiments in the comments sections of Destiny articles. I'm probably going to take a break from competitive FPS until Battlefront.

 

Destiny, The Division, GTA:V, MGSV,  and the next Mass Effect title are all on my agenda. Outside of Battlefront, a Bad Company 3 could draw me back in as well.

That was the problem I had with Guild Wars 1.. I played it so much that I stopped playing it for a couple years except for checking in during holiday events. Hell, when I was a kid I played nothing but 2D fighting games. I even bought every version of Street Fighter 2.. after a while I got so burned out that I still don't play fighting games even now. But now I'm feeling like that for Battlefield. I've mentioned this before.. I honestly wasn't going to get BF4 except for the fact that I got it on PS4 and it was 64 players and noticeably different from BF3 on PS3 to me. And from what I've seen of Hardline.. it looks and plays like BF4 but with less players and some different game modes.. It almost looks like its a step back from BF4. I'll pass on it for now. Hardline would have been better off as a DLC for BF4. I know there is going to be a campaign for it, but the campaigns for BF3 and BF4 weren't worth $60. Its a multiplayer game and seeing as I already own BF4, Hardline doesn't seem like something I'd be interested in.

 

Man.. all those Street Fighter 2 games.. I think there were 7 of them. I kept thinking to myself.. when the f*ck are they going to make Street Fighter 3, and how many versions of it will they make? Well.. I stopped and never played Street Fighter 3, IV, V, etc. It got so repetitive that when I look back on it now, it makes me realize how addicted to the genre I was. Its very similar to everyone that buys the never ending Call of Duty games. Even though Injustice Gods among us looks like a great game, I've had no interest in buying it just like I had no interest in buying COD Ghosts.

 

Destiny will be fun because I like Borderlands and I like GW 1 & 2 and Destiny combines all those things, even the FPS multiplayer aspect. I think I need to expand my gaming horizons some more. I will definitely be buying The Division. That game looks epic to me, same with the new MGS. I'd like to get Diablo 3 for PS4 also, but I'll have to wait on that one for a while. Too many games are coming out for me to keep up with later this year with my finances. I'm so glad my car payment will be done with next spring.

LOL. I loved SF. SF2 Turbo was my favorite of that series... the code for max turbo was ridiculous. Street Fighter 4 was pretty awesome... but Fighting games don't appeal to me anymore like racing games. I bought the last few MK games because the story mode was cool... and brutally hard at moments... but once I beat it and unlocked everything in the crypt I was done with it.... MK Shaolin Monks was amazing in co-op. I wish they would make another. I bought NFS Rivals and played all of 20 minutes of it while BF4 didn't work. I need to try it out again but Racing games don't do it for me anymore like it once did.

 

Between all the BF games I've ever played I've put over 500 hours into the series if not more. I can still have fun if I play with friends, but my work schedule never really allows it. I know with Destiny I can enjoy what little time I have with friends and my time with solo on story and grinder missions. Thats how it was with Borderlands.

 

Diablo 3 is a hell of a lot of fun. I was going to get Ultimate Evil edition until a friend I was going to play it with opted for a Wii U instead of a PS4... he wont be getting one for a while so I'm holding off on that.

I was on this morning (in fact less than an hour ago) playing (trying to see if I still had the stuff, I do and boy am I deadly with a shotgun). Haven't tried the new maps yet but I'll say I hate the Bulldog or at least being on the receiving end of it. Didn't take people long to unlock it. The shield is kind of a joke by what I've seen, it's rather easy to kill someone wielding it (or at least it was with a shotgun). I'll have to work on unlocking it tonight when I give the new expansion a run for it's money (didn't want to start it until I unlocked a scope for my SVD, I hate iron sights on DMR's).

lol, I set mine up to download while I watched the new episode of Deadliest Catch (priorities you know). I thought about giving it a shot this morning but then I remembered how bad Naval Strike was when it came out so I decided to practice on some 400% Locker goodness. I'll man up and play it tonight like I said, hopefully it's not as bad as Naval Strike was when it came out but considering the amount of people using the DEagle, Unica, Ballistic Shield, and Bulldog it's looking like this might be the first dlc rollout with very little problems.

That would be good. The big problem with the naval strike launch was that DICE's servers needed a severe upgrade. Now that they fixed that issue everything should work smoothly. I did have some lag issues the other day tho. Almost like someone was doing a ping of death attack against my router again. I think when you rent a server you can access the control panel via battlelog. If some asshole admin can see the ip#s then they're probably cheating by pinging everyone on the opposite team.

I ran into lag myself last night and was thinking it was rather weird considering when it happened (in an area that did have a lot of fighting but everytime an enemy came out of a door I'd hit severe lag as if someone planned it). Can't prove anything and it was a rented server but I was thinking that was weird considering I rarely, if ever, lag like that while playing BF4.

This game is still definitely fun to play with friends. Strider and me were kicking some ass tonight on the Dragon's Teeth maps. I like the new maps. One of them was very open and great for mortaring, while another was filled with so many multi-leveled buildings that it felt like a maze. Which was nice because it was a large map that wasn't good for sniping at all. It was a lot of action but without the bottlenecks of metro and locker. That bulldog gun seems to be everyone's new favorite. The shield didn't seem effective at all from the one teammate I saw that used it.

I unlocked the MPX tonight after finishing a couple lagging chain link matches. Conquest runs great, but I had some lag issues on chain link, maybe it was just that particular server. The MPX is easily on par with the F2000. A few less rounds, but with a little extra damage and more stability. The reload is very fast too. If anyone wants some helicopter points, I'll pilot as long as somebody has a repair torch. I have both my helicopters fully unlocked, but I'm interested in testing out how well they can handle now that I haven't played in a while. The scout helicopter runs great, but those 25mm rounds still do hardly anything to infantry. Before those were nerfed almost a year ago, those things would have killed anyone near the hit area just from the splash damage. It was an amazing heli gun. Hmm.. I wonder if the TV missile is actually worth using now on the Attack Helicopter.

I gotta set mine to download. I forgot when I got off the other night. I'll be off saturday, sunday and monday, so we def need to get some rounds in. It was fun, just doing stupid crap like defending a mountain top that had no strategic purpose nor helped either team.... but the people kept coming to get us. XD

Just send me a text if you guys get on and I'll join you, need to get some more BF4 practice in before Tuesday when Final Stand goes live for us. I'll get on for a few considering I still have to work (and I don't need to be on FF farming currency as I finally got my last piece of armor yesterday so I'm good for awhile).

 

The MPX is an amazing gun. I unlocked my later that night after you guys got off and fell in love with it immediately. I still think the F2000 is a much better gun but the MPX would give it a run for it's money in a showdown. It's certainly a prime contender for my Engineer's permanent primary weapon but I still like my QBS-09. That shotgun turns me into a very dangerous person to come across on close quarters maps like Pearl Market and Metro.

I tried out a match last night after my internet decided to work and overall it's not that bad. As usual it suffers from lag but nowhere near as bad as Naval Strike did. Played on Hangar 21 and I gotta say the map is freaking huge (as are all of them as far as I know). There was no Hover tank on the map but snowmobiles are fun to drive around (even if they handle like jet skis) and the rail gun is a beast if you can get your hands on it. Now to figure out how to unlock the compound bow. I just hope it doesn't require me to finish the other three Phantom assignments to get it (because I'll never get those done).

I finally got everything downloaded tonight. It took over an hour with the BF4 update, Final Stand and Destiny patch. I haven't turned my ps4 on in a couple days and I still don't trust stand by mode to actually work for me. I'll be getting on for some rounds tomorrow around 6 or 7 pm edt if anyone wants to team up. If not, I'll try and work on those 2 new gadget assignments.

 

 

It looks like once you put the new password in for the last phantom assignment it will unlock the weapon.. but it might be tied to having all 3 previous phantom assignments done. If that is the case then that is bullshit. Theres no way I'll play endless hours just to get hand gun kills, etc. just to unlock a bow. I honestly liked the cross bow in BF3. I wish it actually came out earlier on in the game and not on the 3rd DLC though. With this new bow just now coming out in the last DLC and if only the truest hard core players can get it, then I hope it sucks because if it is another DEAGLE weapon in terms of being OP, then ppl will be pissed off. :nod: I was hoping we'd get a tomb raider style bow in BF4 from the beginning. The C4 arrows were fun to use in BF3 until they got nerfed and would only kill with a direct hit. Once that happened it was pointless to use those particular arrows anymore unless you were shooting them at a jeep.

It seems there may be more then that to it if Jack's video sheds any light on how this might be unlocked.
 
I got on for a few matches last night and got through all the maps. The new DLC is quite amazing in a lot of ways. Not only are the maps huge (and a sniper's paradise) they're actually pretty fast paced and battles are rather epic (hell my squad held a mountain just like we did when we played last week). I will say that I absolutely hate choppers in these maps, makes it into a shooting gallery for anyone even moderately good with a chopper (all the maps are completely open with very little to no inside combat). I tried out the hover tank and I absolutely suck with it since you have to turn the whole tank just to aim the main cannon at a target. Throws me off considerably since I'm used to a swivel turret of normal tanks. Haven't really seen anyone that's actually good with it yet (it's only available on two maps).
 
I'd really love to get my hands on the rail gun again but that's everyone's favorite toy right now due to it being a one shot kill weapon and it can destroy all vehicles in the game. I just like it because there's no bullet drop on it (which makes me ever so happy, back to COD sniping for me. Only real downside is it's need to charge before you shoot).

 

Send me a text when you get on tonight, I'll play a few matches if I'm not busy working on my Animus weapon in FF (probably won't be, I only really need to get on to do my dailies but I can always do those Friday morning as the day doesn't reset until 8 am for FF).

I got the target detector unlocked. It only works for carbines and dmrs from what I saw. Its a weapon attachment and it makes a cone on the mini map that shows enemies on the map like the motion sensor from the movie aliens. I'm 2 melee kills away from the decoy. That actually seems useful because it shows up as a constant enemy triangle on the map. And when you run around a corner about to knife someone all you see a little gadget on the floor.

The decoy doesn't hold up well against a mortar tho. One hit and it's instant destroyed.

I looked at the list of trophies and there is one called "Your titan is ready" lol. I forget what you had to do to get that one.

Also, the pod launcher was interesting. You jump in it aim towards where you want to go and boom! You are flying through the air. Pretty cool.

      Now I understand why the last Lord of the Rings movie had such a long endless ending.. I'm halfway through the last book, the ring is already destroyed, the war is won and everyone is celebrating at the castle.. theres still like 300 pages left. wtf.  and one of the biggest differences from the book and the movie was the last stretch of Frodo and Sam's journey. In the movie, they fought Shelob the spider and after Sam killed a couple Orcs and saved Frodo, they  took some more paths and were at the the lava in Mt Doom.. in the book, Sam had to infiltrate a massive Orc base, most of the Orcs killed each other in an argument, save Frodo.. and then had to actually go to Mt Doom still because that was only the first mountain. wtf. They had an extra week of traveling through enemy controlled land, sneak past multiple Orc bases and encampments, dress up as orcs and had to blend in with an Orc march to get over a bridge, get to Mount Doom, climb it.. lmao. the movie could have been so much longer.

      As a hater of CGI in anime for the most part. I must say Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin has done the best job I've seen of using it. The Battle of Loum was an incredible sequence. This should be a clinic on how to do proper CGI if you're going to do it. I'll always prefered drawn, but damn that episode was phenomenal.

      I think I found a new web host. If all goes well I'll transfer AC over to it sometime this month. It might have slower page loads but it'll save me money and some time since I wont have to do server maintenance / troubleshooting anymore.

      And the first ceiling fan I put up is making a noise.  I'm going to have to take it back down and adjust the damn steel mounting bracket. x_x When I did the second fan I realized I could get my phone at just the right angle to see exactly where I was mounting the damn thing. I'll have to do that for the first fan now. That'll take multiple hours this weekend. x_x

      Since the founding of Kickstarter I've only backed one project and that was Kung Fury. I recently backed two more projects. A new wallet and a retro style watch.
      I honestly don't get the whole "minimalist" wallet thing. I think it's pretty dumb actually. Before this fad even started it was hard enough for me to find a wallet with enough card slots to begin with. I have a debit card, drivers licenses, concealed carry permit, Social security card, health insurance card, dental insurance card, Kohl's card, and 3 credit cards (Visa, Master, Discover). Now that everywhere takes Visa I kinda wish I didn't have all 3, but there was a time Sam's club only took discover, and my master card was my first line of credit that just got upgraded to a mastercard when it was originally just a sears card. Anyways all in all I have 12-14 cards, and I feel like I always need them in case of an emergency. I don't carry cash, so the whole billfold that only holds 1 card... I don't know how people do it. I backed this Grip6 wallet because I've been using their belts and they're amazing. I also break belts a lot since I only use 1 for everything and I'm very active at my job. If it wasn't for the leather sleeve that increases card capacity to 14, i wouldn't have bothered. It's a cool concept. I use my debit card multiple times a day. All my cards that pay for stuff will go into the pop up slot. My lesser used cards like insurance and ID will go in the leather sleeve.
      I've also reinvigorated my love for watches. I own 3 in my rotation. I've lost my love for metal bracelet watches as I always break them, and leather I ruin from sweating at my job so much. I just ordered a canvas strap to replace a leather band actually. But I also love analogue watches. I don't like pulling my phone out to look at the time, its just easier to look at my wrist. I've always had a watch since I was 14. I'll never be one of those serious watch collectors that owns $5000 watches... thats too extreme. I stay under $400. I've been looking for something retro and classy to add to my collection.. buying real vintage watches is out of the question so I found this... but its only half funded with 27 days left so It may not become a thing.
      I'll never back a kickstarter game after all the shenanigans over the past couple of years, but recently I've found it to be a good source of finding things that no one else is making to my needs. I still did my research on the company/owner before backing, but hopefully I get two decent products. With all the crazy OT I've been getting lately I have the luxury to splurge a little.

    • I really wish GW2 would add this system. There is a "sexy stretch" in the hand on hip idle. Each idle stance has an animation that goes into it. That way people that bitch and moan about it never had to see it, but people that liked it can have it in that stance. I have more fun that I should messing around with poses in this game while I wait to be match made into a dungeon. /sit has different sitting positions, and you can sit in chairs or on boxes and have different sitting positions there too. I'm sure this is nothing to every other FFXIV player, but to me its so unique and fun. There is even a /pose where you do a little turn around over the shoulder look.
       
    • I miss sexy stretch. lol.
    • I didnt have access to bunny girl when I made her.
    • Bah, needs more Bunny girl. Looking good there sir, can't wait to see what she looks like come 50 and beyond.
