  1. Finished up HPs in VB and then caught a train in AB. I'm 60 HPs away from completing my scrapper. The hammer play is pretty cool, I need all my gyros to get the full experience.

    1. DeathscytheX

      The HPs in HoT are still champions. I thought they were changing them to vets like most the events, but I guess not. I was able to solo the communes surrounded by vets by spamming nade kit, but I was lucky enough to catch the champion HPs in progress. I don't know how people enjoy base engineer. its such a massive rotation that is all ground targeted with ass for mobility. I guess I'm so use to being able to faceroll with DH and Reaper, or the high mobility of Ranger and Mesmer with their stamina regen traits/skills. Engi has some great damage, but you can't afford to take as much punishment as other classes like Warrior/Reaper/Rev.

      Interesting. Whats your setup so far? Hammer, rifle, double pistols? You can only equip a couple of kits at a time right? like flamethrower and grenades?

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Rifle is meta fo base, but it's laughable. You stay in nade kit and rotate 1-5 F1-5. I'm probably never gonna run fractals or raids with her so I'll use the power hammer build on meta battle. I already invested in zerk gear before the condi update. 

  2. Stomped an Anet employee on EoTM. XD A lot more Zerg v Zerg going on these days. Its pretty fun. The reward track is the best thing to happen to WvW.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I dunno. I mean if you have everything else you want it is kinda worth it. My DH has 15k HP now from vital infusions on my ascended armor/trinkets. XD that's absurd for Guardian. 

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      All of my infusion slots are full of agony resistance. x_x The only way I can add power is to make those expensive things. But the fractal mastery does have a vendor that lets me extract infusions for 24 silver per piece of armor. I've used it so many times swapping AR around. I made sure to save my +20 exp and +20 magic find infusions that I bought with laurels. If I can finally put high level fractals to the curb I'll swap some of this AR over to power infusions and save the AR ones for a rainy day. I really wish AR was an account bound upgrade thing like a mastery and not tied to armor slots.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah I use vital/power. It's a great boost for regular dungeons.

  3. Mike O'Brien will be under center today when GW2's quarterly update goes live. Nothing has been revealed about it, and its a different approach to this type of stuff than we're all use to under Colin. That being said, there is no telling how much Colin had his hand on this update, and how much was changed under Mike. 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm hoping for the best but expecting minimal changes to the aspects of the game that affect what I play. I don't care for the raids and pvp was pretty much ruined for me. Unless some new content happens via LW or WvW soon, the only thing I'll have left in the game is fractal farming for my back piece and finishing bolt. If the HoT maps do get more casual I could actually play them in my spare time which would give me something new to do.

  4. Checked my crafting station with the mind set of making ascended armor for the first time. I was able to craft 2 more pieces for my Guardian. I just need to save up more damask to get the last 3. I might as well get it done before they increase the requirements more. It's been a while since I spent all day on GW2.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I have 2 pieces of ascended armor on my warrior from ascended armor drops from fractals (i know at least 1 was from fractals, can't remember about the other). But I've been doing fractals off and on for over a year. And I thought it'd be a good way to farm ascended armor. jokes on me. x_x

  5. When you go to the DZ solo for the sole purpose of killing 10 cleaners for the weekly and the cleaner boss drops a gear set piece... I didn't need that stress, but I extracted successfully. X_x

      Strider Hiryu

      Eh, I'll probably attempt it tonight after I do the HM missions when they reset. That 30 creds would give me enough to by the M44 blueprint.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I see now why those weapons are almost 1000 credits... they are 204 gear score. I guess it makes sense now. I bought my striker pads today and I rolled 99% scavenging on them. I'll try my luck in CM drops. I hear you can get a 204 weapon drop if you're lucky.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Yea I noticed that today when I got on. Nice scavenging score, pretty sure you'll get a 204 HE with that). Finally bought the M44 blueprint and, while I probably didn't get the best rolls on it, the thing is a beast in the test range (almost 108,000 on headshot, almost 152,000 on crit headshot). Can't wait to actually try it out on enemies.

  6. Ratchet & Clank is a blast. Its been so long since I've played the first game, I can't remember of any resemblance of it in this one. I remember the story, and its definitely told a bit differently here. The visuals are pixar quality for sure.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Sounds fun. :D Back in the day I had the chance to play Ratchet & Clank and never did. I regretted that. Instead I played Crash Bandicoot. That was fun at the time but all these years later Ratchet & Clank looks like the better franchise.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      R&C is def better than Bandicoot. Bandiicoot was just a regular platformer. R&C along with platforming and various puzzles, has always had an amazing array of weapons, tools, and abilities. Not only that it's always had an interesting upgrade system to go along with each weapon. Although the games have always been super easy, this preorder weapon I got is ultra OP. XD I've stopped using it after I maxed it by the 3rd planet I was on just to play with other weapons. Its really one of those games you just sit back and enjoy without any frustrating moment. The story has always been great, the check points are beyond forgiving on death, and its just an all around casual good time. :P

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      You really know how to sell a game. *is tempted to buy* :D

  7. WTF is this ice on the floor on SAB W2... X_x I'd rage so hard if this was on any of the regular world JPs.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I hate that ice. x_x If you hit the shovel skill you can stop your sliding tho.

  8. With DOOM and Overwatch on the horizon it would be nice to see oldschool mechanics come back to the FPS genre. Hopefully these games do very well. I might pick up DOOM for the single player.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'd play DOOM for the single player. The multiplayer for that looks like an afterthought like the uncharted 3, tomb raider and last of us multiplayer modes.

  9. Overwatch's MMR has me interested in trying out their competitve leauge play once I get a grasp on the game.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I love the variety of classes in this game. Hopefully theres no one class that everyone declares 'meta' and runs with endlessly.

  10. Strider's first challenge mode was one of the roughest missions. XD The clutch main valve shut off with seconds left on the timer was epic.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      My first time it took 5 hours to beat it X_x. 80% came from the timed part.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      XD, that Colby clutch was beyond epic (10 secs left and he pulled that off). Was freaking fun and I'm glad it didn't take 5 hours to beat (over an hour was long enough). Definitely learned that I need better gear going forward when it comes to running CM's (which I got plenty of upgrades from that and those hard modes we ran).
    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Lexington Event Center is a cake walk by comparison. Bullet King Farm helped me obtain all HE gear. Otherwise it can be a long grind for all the blue prints. That vector and extended mag blue print is top priority IMO.

  11. I've been waiting for Negan since I first read the moment that will be portrayed on TV this Sunday. Looking forward to seeing Jeffrey Dean Morgan bring him to life.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I have a strong feeling that Maggie is going to be Negan's first victim.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I thought so until the last episode. Shes not in the group that got caught. Its probably going to be one or more between Daryl, Glenn, Michonne, Rosita, Morgan, and Carol. Although I find it funny how the majority of everyone is wearing the same color jacket to cover up who was laying in the ground in the preview. Michonne is off the table IMO, everyone else is fair game.

  12. SAB!!!!!! GW2 trying to smooth over the rage. XD

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      8-bit retro gaming with my MMO character? Yes please. :D It amazes me that vg247 or kotaku will post every single update about Destiny including mundane crap like what the weekly vendor has for sale, but GW2 releases an 8-bit retro festival that it hasn't been seen in over 2 years and no gaming website gives a crap.

  13. Funi added Yu Yu Hakusho to streaming!!!!

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I love that series and I've had dvds of it for years now. ^_^ I don't think the final season ever aired on toonami, and that final season makes the dark tournament seem pretty weak in comparison. :D I bet its been remastered in hd. My Yu Yu Hakusho dvds are really crap quality.

  14. Thinking about picking up Overwatch when it comes out. The more I watch Widowmaker gameplay, the more intrigued I get.

    1. DeathscytheX
    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Hell yes blizzard. They know what they're doing.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Blops 3 made this mistake. Apparently the pc version is full of the semi auto sniper rifle. Treyarch refuses to nerf it separately. Mouse and keyboard make it super OP.

  15. Two new seasons of FLCL? I hope they're just as batshit crazy as the first one.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      The original season was wacky as hell but had deeper meanings thru metaphors for many scenes. It'll be interesting if they can maintain that, or if they're just going to make some crazy anime.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      As intrigued as I am I'm not to sure I'm happy another studio has the rights to this. I like Production I.G. and the work they've done in the past (GitS: SAC and what not) but they're not really known for bat shit crazy shows like FLCL, that's Gainax's forte. I hope they do it right (they're work on GitS: Arise was not their best work to date) otherwise they'll have a shit ton of pissed off fans.

  16. After winning several 2v4 encounters by trolls, I've discovered there are some really bad players in the DZ. Everyone is making max DPS builds with little skill power.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I run a lot of crit chance on my gear, along with my vector that does high crit damage and even more chance on its talents. Along with scan puse I can melt the tankiest of builds. I keep my HP around 62k.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Running 100k hp builds doesn't seem worth it. Some of my group has it, and they still go down. I prefer skill power for better pulse and sticky bombs. One person I know can insta down a whole team with his sticky because his sp is +30k and he had sticky stats on all his gear XD

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      My damage mitigation is at 50%. I think armor values can off set lower HP values.

  17. The Division loot cave has been found! XD

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Oh thats huge then. This will be the first real test to see how quick the devs can fix an exploit.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Considering it was just fixed in today's patch I'd say rather quick. Massive won't have any of these farming exploits in there game

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Yeah, and they buffed loot/dz gains across the board. Much better than Bungie saying "f you, we'll turn all your purple engrams into blue ones if you dont spend them before the patch" and keep the drops shit. Even thought the drops were already better than anything Destiny gave me in a whole year.

  18. Survived a level 5 manhunt after going Rogue on some assholes that kept talking shit in proxy chat. We ganked their stuff on extraction and killed them a good 10 times. They probably lost 2-3 DZ levels. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I have some of it saved. What started it happened long before the 15min clip that may have saved. i'll try to upload it later. XD

    2. Sledgstone
  19. In one day of reaching max level on The Division, I got more good drops than an entire year of Destiny grind.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Sounds like a good plan.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Today's daily was so savagely hard. It took us 5 hours to beat it. And thats with gold weapons. XD Plus we started out with 2 randoms via matchmake. One left and we got a regular in. It turned out the random new the best strategy for the hardest encounter. We had a 9 min timer to clear out 3 waves of enemies which featured those damn shotgun rushers. We had to use all the CC we could muster to keep them at bay in a choke point, while using our damage buff consumable and my group toughness...

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thats crazy. O_O

  20. I've stayed up til 4-5am 3 nights in a row. XD The Division is the most fun I've had playing a co-op game in years.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Awesome. :D Whats your favorite fashion item so far? :P

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I dunno yet. XD If you collect whole sets of collectables like intel, phone recordings, etc, you get more fashion items. I bet these are the best looking. XD

  21. The Division was datamined for 26 main missions. My biggest concern has been resolved. Hype Train CHOO CHOOOOOO!!

  22. LOL. I just saw that Xur is selling Hawkmoon... more than a year after the game came out. A bit too late.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Shit, when I logged on to buy Suros right before TTK came out I could get Thorn by just turning in my uncompleted bounty (I shit you not, it told me to turn it in for a Thorn. Wish I would of taken a screenshot) because they knew the gun was going to be worthless come TTK (and it still is as it never got a Year 2 remake like Suros, Hawkmoon, Mida, and the few other Exotics they redid).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Oh yeah, I forgot about that. XD. I guess it's for the players that got suckered into buying it post Y1

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Oh.. so legacy emblem means you can get an outdated Thorn thats not worth using anymore? lmao. Xur might as well be selling Salt at this point. XD

  23. Battlefield 5 is rumored to be a WWI shooter, with how limited that is I think it will be a WWII shooter... eitherway I'm excited for an older era on modern consoles.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Battlefield: Oregon Trail featuring Horse and Wagon Nitroglycerin suicide. XD

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Whenever you die without being killed by an enemy, in BF4 it says: "Killed in action" In BF: Oregon Trail it'll say "You have died of dysentery"

      XD

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I'd totally be down for a Vietnam game. Sadly I never got the chance to play BFBC2 so I missed out on that but I've heard nothing but great things about it.

      XD, now I want Battlefield: Oregon Trail now. Someone should drop the hint in DICE's ears for a spinoff game

  24. Finished TWD Compendium 3. It will probably be another year before compedium 4 comes out. X_x

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      They just finished the Negan arc and introduced the next antagonist. We'll see Negan on the season finale. They have enough content to stretch it for 2-3 seasons. This will be a longer conflict than the Governor.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I want to say they started the TV series when the comic started the prison arc.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah. So theres a chance the series will pass the comic eventually? I wonder if that happens, if they'll put the show on hiatus, or make a new filler arc or two like animes do.

  25. COD is slowly trying to introduce P2W with the supply drop weapons. They must think they can get away with anything. Reddit has been really pissed about this since it happened. This will be their undoing.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Welcome to the new age of gaming. I honestly didn't think Activision would go down this route or at least with COD but I guess I'm wrong. It's only a matter of time before we see it in other shooters.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Paying $100 for the season pass, and then having to spend more to hope and get the game's best weapons... sad. I guess they are trying to compensate off the super hardcore for the declining sales. They're just testing the waters with this one. I'm sure the next will go full blown, and that will spell the end. COD lives off its casual base for sales. Its not an MMO, and it wont survive without the casuals.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I bet it is a test on their part to see if it pays off for them. It'd be one thing if the extras were gun skins like in medal of honor, but to have the best guns trapped behind money is just BS.
