  1. Someone already 3 manned Destiny's new raid and I heard the story was really short. I don't get people that still put money into this game.

      Because people are stupid and will throw money at anything that entertains them just a little bit. As much as I hate shit talking streamers like Gothalion, ProfessorBroman, and other Destiny streamers they honestly feel like Destiny is a well made game with awesome content that keeps delivering over and over. They refuse to see where the game fails and why it fails, stating that a developer can't please everyone (like they understand game development which most of them don't, citing on what the developer says. This rubs me the wrong way being someone who has been trained to work in the industry). It also doesn't help that a lot of the people screaming the games praises are pretty much friends of Bungie through one way or another (it's common knowledge Goth, Broman, TeaWrex and a lot of the big Destiny streamers are friends with Bungie and have been flown out there many times for reveals and what not).

      Honestly we were once fans of the game so they obviously did something right initially but have failed to continually deliver content to keep us interested (and honestly the game is nothing like we were promised as we've learned). I still continue to praise the Crucible and the Iron Banner event as being the only two things the game did right, being some of the most satisfying multiplayer shooting I've played in a long time (yea Battlefield is great but Bungie actually landed the gameplay for this perfectly, then again these were the people who gave us Halo and we all know how god damn fun and addicting Halo MP was at it's peek). Outside of that the game is shit and people just refuse to see it. The same thing is going to happen when Destiny 2 releases because we all know Bungie has yet to learn from their mistakes with Destiny.

  2. FINALLY made Platinum on Overwatch comp. Went on a 6 win 1 draw streak after the opening match was a loss. Once the team scores start averaging 2500 Its so much better. They honestly need to scrap the algorithm that ranks you lower on purpose after placement matches. 2300 and below is horrific with idiotic picks. Once I got past my season high and hit the mid 2400's the team comp and matches were insanely different and way more competitive. Elo Hell is a real thing for solo q, I don't care what Force Gaming says or anyone else. You can't make much of a difference when someone is picking a bad pick on attack. Damn I'm thrilled right now.

  3. I've worn the same par of Vans for almost 15 years. No other pair of shoes I've ever owned have lasted this long. The inserts are pretty much flattened to where I can feel every pebble of gravel under my foot, but the exterior is still perfectly intact minus the usual dirtiness acquired over such a time. I ordered a new pair of Vans and I'll probably get some new inserts for my current ones.

  5. Started playing Journey today. Have no idea whats really going on (I understand for the most part but without any talking or narrations it's all pretty much how you take what you're shown in the cutscenes) but the art style is nice, the puzzle mechanics are pretty interesting, the ability to meet random people playing it is cool (even if you can't speak to each other), and the soundtrack is freaking amazing (probably the best part of the game so far for me). It's a rather relaxing game, can't wait to find time to sit down and actually finish it (I think I'm a third of the way through the game).

  7. With the amount of time PSN is "down for maintenance" I should of just stuck with Microsoft and bought a XBone, at least Live is up more then it's down. All I wanted to do was watch some god damn Netflix tonight but no someone is either DDoSing them again or they just suck at announcing maintenance times. /grumble

  8. I hope the next character Overwatch release is a defense or tank. I keep getting the teams where someone thinks they're a Ana pro. So many losses because of it. It's always my team too. We've resorted to a friend picking Ana, and then when we load in he swaps and I spam emotes and voice lines to cover up the swap. -_-;

  9. Day 2 of being back to work and I'm dead/exhausted. Good god these 10 hour days are rough, so not used to it (not to mention my feet are killing me, my shoulder hurts like hell, and my hands are stiff and ache all over (this assembly shit is not easy on your body)). If you don't hear from me for awhile I'm probably dead from exhaustion (and I have mandatory overtime this week too so no three day weekend :cry:, just got to think of all that lovely money).

  13. In BF4 my favorite troll was RPG chopper take downs. In Overwatch it's trap/mine Genji, especially in his ult with Junkrat. XD I'll have to upload my match later where two Genji's tried to harass me, I got the better of them both way more times than they got me. 

  14. Cleared BF4, Blops 3, and The Division off my HD to make way for the Titanfall 2 and BF1 betas. I only had 40gb of free space left before i did so. Now I have 180gb.

  15. After 4 months of going through hell to find a job I finally landed one today (start on Monday). Damn good thing I did, I'm almost out of money (my computer fund went bye bye, need to start saving again). Once I get my first paycheck I'm picking up Overwatch, I need something to take my frustrations out on (and BF4 and R6S just aren't cutting it).

  17. I just found out Overwatch competitive rewards are based on your season high and not current standing. I would have been more aggressive if I would have known. -_-;

      That'd be a nice change. As much as I loved QP in beta I think a QP with comp rules would be amazing and it'd be a good training ground to get people into the competitive mind set (as well as allow them to actually get better with heroes in the same environment without the pressure of having to perform at their best). I'm sure Blizzard will look into this because it seems this is the one game they're actually listening to their player base on (implementing changes quickly, re-balancing the heroes as needed, etc).

      I really do hope they implement something like it because it's all I'd play until I could join competitive (hint Blizz, do it for those of us planning on buying the game and wanting to play competitive as soon as we hit 25. You'd have all our love and respect)

      Those are interesting changes, wonder how the community is going to welcome them. I mean it sounds a lot easier to make a respectable rank now but the idea of awarding 10 times the points and making the weapons cost 10 times more just seems stupid. It's adding an unnecessary amount of grinding to a system that already requires said amount of grinding, just leave it as is because you're not really changing anything. The Sudden Death and Coin Toss changes are a welcome change though, especially for spectators (SD and CT situations are extremely boring to watch and extremely one sided).

      I'm interested to hear Matt's thoughts on this, wonder if he'll talk about it tonight while he's streaming (I think he's playing  Overwatch tonight so he probably will).

  19. I saw this article on my local news this morning stating that Trump is losing NY by 30 points now. He says the media is corrupt and hes only going to lose if the system is rigged. The thing is tho hes really loosing NY because he has no presence here. I've seen numerous Clinton commercials over the last month and I've gotten 3 phone calls from the DNC asking for donations and support. But there has been absolutely zero pro Trump commercials. Nothing from super pacs or from his own campaign. And those commercials against trump are pretty damning to his credibility. I know Trump says the media is corrupt but unless he actually pays the media companies for commercial time hes setting himself up for a loss. I'm actually starting to think he wants to loose on purpose at this point. If he has no interest in even trying to win his home state I don't see how hes going to win this election at all. Its so odd to see more commercials from my local republican representative trying to win his re-election and not see a single commercial for someone running for president.

  21. I just beat StarCraft II Legacy of the Void. It was a great campaign and it ended well. Where the story went wasn't what I was expecting. With how it ended I doubt we'll get a StarCraft 3. I hope Blizzard doesn't MMO this game and screw up it's lore. Compared to Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void wasn't the most enjoyable. I definitely liked HoTS better. But I also can't play Protoss worth a damn unless I have a crap ton of carriers.

      Really, they just buffed the poor guy and now they're going to nerf him. Man Zenyatta gets no love man (let the guy solo tanks, he's a peace loving robotic monk and deserves to kick ass).

      lol, I don't even play and I've known that for awhile. You still have time to bring you're rank up before the season ends.
