I like sniping on Golmud Railway. This particular rock I'm on gives me a good view of a few flags and the spawn location of the enemy team. I normally shoot at the flags, but when no targets were available and I saw an enemy heading back into their spawn location for a jeep, I took a shot. Turns out he was putting C4 on a jeep. My bullet destroyed the C4, which in turn killed him.
The Bomber Cruise Missile makes a good explosion but kills nothing unless its a direct hit. It is much weaker than the JDAM bombs. Sure you can direct its movement like a TOW missile, but its not that effective.
It took me over 8 minutes to get this bomber delivery ribbon. I wasn't playing this round as a good squad mate either. I went directly for the bomber, switching to whichever squad was closest to the bomber door at every opportunity.
This is actually the very first bomber delivery ribbon I got, but I couldn't get the video to upload correctly from my PS4 until now. Its pretty obvious I didn't know what I was doing with the bomber in this video and I lucked out with an assist counts as kill in the end. Check my other bomber videos to see better kills. The main thing with the bomber is to target stationary vehicles and infantry.
I spawned into an Attack Helicopter as a gunner to see how good the damage is now since the last patch. I was completely surprised that my teammate turned out to be an ace pilot. This guy has given me some good insight on how to effectively use the attack helicopter. Watch this video to see me get an Attack Helicopter Ribbon as the gunner. Now I need to work on my flying skills in the test area so I can attempt to get my speed and turns as good as this pilot.
Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera. I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different. But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<
I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a testament to what single player games can be when you spend years developing them rather than 1-2 years and throw them out there with endless sequels. It would take me a few hours to hammer out my initial thoughts on this game. The level of detail is truly spectacular. My one concern was having to juggle all the health/stamina and weapon maintenance, but somehow Rockstar made it very uncumbersome to where its there, but you don't really have to worry about it every few minutes... I've gone hours without having to rest or use consumables. I've found myself getting lost in just tracking/hunting for hours. The amount of random side content is astonishing. After I get off work tomorrow, I'll have a whole week to dive into it and get lost. I'm really looking forward to it.
