    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4   
    Never did use the dagger, all about Rapid Fire and Sentries with homing rockets. Cut down most champions in seconds and most bosses in under a minute (could be faster but damn hatred runs out to damn fast with Rapid Fire (even with the decreased hatred use rune slotted in)). Was thinking of taking my Wizard up but I lost all interest in the game after that disappointing boss fight at the end. I was expecting so much more like I said.
     
    That was one of my biggest disappointments as well. The skill tree was so intricate in D2 that is was fun tweaking shit just so you could get that extra bit a damage out of an ability (my Lightning Sorc was OP back in the day, sadly I never did get a chance to fully finish her gear set out and don't get my started on my Bone Nec. The things he could do still amaze me).

    I'm sure there will be, but maybe not in Old Russia. That seems to be Fallen territory even though the Hive are lingering around... The Wizard seems to be the most powerful of the Hive we've seen so far and he only seems to be the equivalent of a Fallen Captain.... We've seen nothing from the Vex, or those that await us on Mars.
     
    Because of my shit ass work schedule the only time I've been on at the same time as Strider is when I was downloading the beta. I have yet to play any game with him.... This is exactly why I took a whole week off for launch. I look forward to finally doing strike missions together with all 3 of us.

    No codes even required now? Damn. I guess they really want to stress test the system then. Kind of makes pre-ordering for beta access a bit pointless now too. hmm.
     
    I got my last couple videos up!
     
    Here is the purple ball Strider found in the tower:
     

     
    We played the Devil's Lair strike on the highest difficulty and this is how the fight with the Devil Walker went down.
     

     
    We found a crazy difficult horde of enemies yesterday and after looking at this video again, I see that beneath the names of the enemies that killed me it says "Hidden Swarm". The waves of enemies in this horde was intense:

    Wow that sniper rifle is huge! Thanks for getting those pics of it. I couldn't tell it was that big while holding it. Only 3 ammo for it at a time sucks, but damn that gun is a beast.
     
    I got some good video clips saved of our adventure tonight. I'll have to post the last 3 tomorrow because I can't stay awake long enough to see the upload finish. But heres the clip of us team killing each other and me setting my sparrow for self destruct.

    I'll pm the PS3 code to you shortly.
     
    I don't think the Moon mission will become available. I clicked on it earlier today only to get a message saying something about waiting for 9/9 for the full release. Unless they plan on opening it up last minute for people to play I don't think we'll get to see it.

    As far as I could tell last night when I got on nothing changed. Unless they added something for max level players I think the downtime was for server tests and probably getting everything ready for the Microsoft side of the test since it also went live yesterday due to there early finish.
     
    edit: There doesn't seem to be anything new added to the beta. Hit 8 this morning and there was no new stuff to do unless they're adding stuff to the Crucible (which I haven't been doing anything with). I'll be on tonight myself. I'll watch my PSN app to see when you get on if I'm not on at that time. Might be leveling my Titan.
     
    I also have 3 PS4 codes and a PS3 code for the beta so if anyone is interested let me know. None of my friends own a PS4 beside you crazy people so I've got an abundance.

    Strider Hiryu got a reaction from Sledgstone in Defiance Season 2: Launch Trailer   
    I re-watched the end of ep 3 and actually I think that's the original Sukar. Right before they pan to him sitting his apparently dead corpse starts breathing again and blinks. I could be wrong but that's what it looks like so if she's not making clones she's making something else. Either this metal crap is re-wiring them to follow Irzu's commands (as seen by that Casti chick going after the Casti kid) or something bigger is going on.
     
    If that was her parents then why were they on that ship because it that's the ship under Defiance then they were in an extremely powerful warship if everything we been told so far is true. Everything they've told us and the way Yewll was acting last season makes me think this won't end well if that ship is ever recovered.
     
    I also finally did get around to watching last weeks episode and I have to say I'm quite happy to see Datak get the snot kicked out of him. Such a cocky bastard but Stahma is going to regret letting him live. He might not currently have a crew but with what happened to Rafe I can see him joining up to help retake the town now.
     
    This season is really starting to get good. I don't want to get my hopes up (like I did with Almost Human) but if keeps along these lines I can definitely see another season getting greenlit.

    This. Bungie stayed professional about losing all the rights to the IP they created. They parted ways without being nasty publicly. But if you read the articles at that time, everyone could see they got screwed hard. Sony swooped in, embraced them and it has paid off. It was a golden opportunity to finally have access to the company that revolutionized FPS. Bungie even had part in PS4's controller design, which means they were given unprecedented access to Sony's stuff in regards to next gen. Bungie felt the love and is returning it while Xbox One and 360 is just a cash cow for them as of right now.
     
    It reminds me of Nintendo and Rare back in the 90s. I understand why MS did what they did... but they didn't go about doing it the right way. They were mad that Bungie wanted to go 3rd party, so they intentionally tried to hurt them. The fans have to suffer, but they should be blaming MS, not Bungie... they're too caught up in the fanboyism of it all.

    F'in whiners. I hope they realize that outside of the money Sony threw at Activision to get the special treatment for Destiny that Bungie is probably doing this as a slam in Microsoft's face for the way they treated them during their time developing Halo for them. Honestly MS screwed Bungie by taking the rights to Halo as part of the deal for them to leave but Destiny is already a much better game then Halo ever was (don't get me wrong I love the Halo series but honestly giving the game to 343 was, imo, the worst thing they could of done for the series) and I'm happy Sony is get preferential treatment with it. Make me even happier that I bought a PS4.

    Pfft, this is why you reformat the computer and put Windows 7 on it. Fixes all your problems.
     
    I still refuse to upgrade to Windows 8. My friends has been harping me to do it because "it's so much better then 7." Yea, I'll pass thank you. Sadly this is what happens when you take an OS designed to be used by tablets and try and re-purpose it for use as a desktop OS.

    So if the leak is true apparently this is releasing on the 15th of this month. Am I the only one thinking this is a bad move since the Destiny beta starts up for PS3/4 users on the 17th and the 360/One users a few days after? I know they have a huge fan base for this game but honestly do you think those of us in the Destiny beta are going to drop that to come play a DLC that I honestly think should of been released last month.

    Hmmm, definitely an interesting start to the season with those two eps (yea I'm slow, lot of crap going on).
     
    I'm happy to see Stahma finally grew a pair (persay) and has finally shown us her true colors. I really wish we would of seen more of it last season but I'm really happy to see it now. I really want to know where this Irisa story is going because this random killing people for no apparent reason is confusing the crap out of me. Quite honestly I'm surprised Nolan was offered his job back considering his past. I just wonder how Tommy is going to take it when he finds out (seems to really like his new job, would hate for him to lose it even if he isn't the right man for the job).
     
    I'm also extremely happy to see Datak in jail. I really don't like him and hope something bad happens to him on the inside.

    I'm assuming level cap for Beta will be 20 as all the Legendary gear in Alpha was level 20. Just an assumption and I'm assuming it'll be between 20 - 50 for retail (as most MMO's usually cap at 50 (some rare ones don't)).
     
    Character slot wise I'm going to guess 3 slots, one for each character class as you really can't specialize your characters to do one thing in this game like you can in most MMO's (I mean you can swap abilities in the tree at will). Plus honestly there really is no reason to go beyond 3 slots, anymore and thats just ridiculous (who needs more then one Titan, Hunter, or Warlock at any given time).
     
    I'm going out on a limb here by saying I doubt there will be no more new classes until the 3rd or 4th DLC. I'm assuming the first two will add more Strikes and probably more planets as it seems like only the Moon and Mars will be in retail besides Earth (this is just speculation, I'd honestly be really surprised if Venus and Mercury were added into retail). Most likely they'll also contain new multiplayer maps/modes and probably new armor sets and weapons. Who knows what Bungie and Activision have planned for this game, I mean this is the only game Bungie is developing for them atm and they plan on keeping it going for a long while by the sounds of it.
     
    Interesting app, I'll have to check it out when it's released.

    Heh, after watching that vid it cemented my love for the Hunter even more. As I said before I'll be rolling a Titan out for Beta just to see how they play (who knows, might like it even more then the Hunter). I have the entire last week of July off (vacation, yay!) so I'll be fiddling with all three classes extensively during the beta and making my final decision for what I'll play on release. I would take release week off but due to inventory for the store being during that time I can't (plus I'm already taking two days off over the 18th and 19th of September to go the FFDP concert in Bismarck). Hopefully I'll have a new job by release anyways so I can have a more flexible schedule to play this with you guys (and hopefully get my ass off these night shifts, they're slowly killing me).

    After this, I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with Warlock first... unless they take the glide jump away. I'm still going to try Titan on the beta.

    Yea it seems everyone has double jump. The one for Sledge and I is just a rocket boosted jump (which apparently neither of us is very good at using ).
     
    Sledge and I were tearing shit up tonight, running around doing missions and getting our asses handed to us in 2 events where we were the only two around to do anything. BTW that tank event is a bitch, Sledge and I spent most of our time dead or finding a hole to hide in. Was extremely fun but I don't think anymore story is in the game or that I could see besides the starting mission. There was a bunch of side quests to do but over all I didn't see any story quests (unless you pick them up at the Tower at a higher level, just hit 7 playing with Sledge and I haven't gone back to the Tower yet). Loving the new Sniper Rifle I picked up tonight too, damn thing is like a freaking cannon.
     
    We should really try to put together a fire team of six tomorrow Sledge and go try The Devil's Lair. I'm really interested to see how that plays out and what kind of loot we'll get from it.

    Well I did get into the beta and played a few games earlier. Honestly this is a much faster paced game then BF4, with Heist matches lasting generally 5-10 minutes a piece. I'll say this much the key to playing, imo, is teamwork which sadly no one I played with seemed to have as they were treating it like BF4 trying to get kills instead of getting the money to the escape points (for Robbers, Cops have to prevent this). Can definitely tell this is a beta as well considering the controls are kinda clunky and characters move a lot like they have something shoved up their ass (when you sprint it feels more like a fast walk).
     
    Going to try out Blood Money tonight when I get back on to see what it's like. Frankie posted a vid on it yesterday and it looks pretty fun and a lot faster paced then Heist.
