  1. Started TellTale's TWD a few days ago. I def wouldn't have been able to enjoy this on console. It just works for PC much better. The story is pretty good so far, but I really hope I can let Larry die, because I will the first chance I get. XD

      Just wait until you play season 2. It's even better. But damn I do miss Lee. That dude was awesome. He was one of the best characters I've seen in a game in years. When I was watching "fear the walking dead" I had recently beaten this game. They accomplished in that game what would have been an amazing tv series. And the TV series we got instead was a big mess of a failure. I had a significantly bigger emotional attachment to these game characters that I felt horrible when something happened to them. But in Fear TWD any if these characters can get killed off and I wouldn't give a damn.

  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. Super Mario Odyssey comes out Friday. I'm pretty excited as it will be the first Mario game I've played since Sunshine. But Stranger Things also comes out that day, and I'm going to see Jigsaw that night. too much shit happening at once. X_X

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. Skip jigsaw and marathon that game. :P I never played sunshine. My last Mario game was Mario 64. XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Nah, it was a tradition for SAW 1-7, I asked off for it to keep it going. XD

      Sunshine was amazing, they'll probably never port it unless it came with a special gamecube controller. The water jets were button pressure sensitive, and all 3 consoles ditched that tech this generation. 

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Wow its only a 5gig download. With as large as the game is that I've seen from E3, thats pretty crazy. BoTW is almost 14gb if you do digital. But I guess the vast scope of BoTW's map with its crazy terrain, towers, 100+ shrines, and 4 moving dungeons demands more. 

  4. Thanks to assholes that kept picking Torbjorn on attack payload, even after someone left and it was 5v6, I ranked lower than last season. Too many lopsided losses from idiots that refuse to swap classes. Its one think to lose a close one, but to not even beable to contest the point is beyond infuriating.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Do more people put headsets on and talk during ranked play? Could it be possible for you to throw your headset on and ask them to swap to a different character? Are there people using chat to breath heavily, play music endlessly and then scream profanity? lol.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I play in my own party or in a party with a friend. The one time I played and forgot to make a party some 12 year old kept saying how bad everyone sucked. I'm sure if I asked him to change he'd say "fuck you noob faggot" or something.

  5. That feeling soloing the boss with corpses cheering you on, because everyone else fell to their death on Thaumanova Reactor, and the boss has 30% HP left. XD I did it for the first time since the change. The heat room isn't that bad when done as a group. But having to do 4 rooms now makes it my least favorite even more so. I also had to do the Not So Secret JP again for Astralaria. WTF? Not So Secret and SW? The two worst JP in the game for this journey. -_-; 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      XD Just wait until tier 4, you'll probably have to do those JP and fractal all over again. XD

      What benefit is there for having the entire group do the heat room? I still haven't made it across once. I never tried it with a cooling rod tho.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      You can stagger the cooling rod shields off CD. With 4 people having a rod, If you do it right, you should make it to the end no problem. Actual only 2 are needed because the cd finishes by the time 1 shield completes. I had a pretty good group. The boss for thauma was their only screw up. We cleared uncatagorized with ease, and we cleared Choas bonfires on the first try after me and the party leader explained it to the other 3 that didn't know what to do... Oh and we melted subject 6 in seconds. What is funny about the thauma boss is you actually have a special action key now that stops 1 platform from dissappearing. It has a heafty CD, but you should be able to use it once per each time someone gets targeted. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That makes so much more sense now.

  6. The end of Feb through the end of March looks great for gaming to me. Nier Automata, Zelda, and Mass Effect. It been a while since there has been back to back to back games I wanted to play. 

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      About the only thing I'm looking forward to is Mass Effect (and I'm somewhat on the fence about that, I'm not letting the hype draw me in this time around like I did BF1. I'll pre-order it most likely but unlike with ME3 I won't get the CE).

      With funds still being limited I gotta pick and choose my games carefully (and while Zelda does look good I can't afford to drop $300 + whatever Zelda will cost just to play it). Nier looks good but I can't justify dropping money on another game when I still have a backlog to go through (not as terrible as Sledge's but it's still hefty and its all games that require more then 40 hours to get through (I'm looking at you Skyrim, DA, and FFX/X-2)).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I just realized Horizon Zero Dawn is mixed in there too. X_x too much.

      Ah fuck I forgot about it as well. Shit, guess I'm going to broke for awhile

  7. The guy that does Demolition Ranch is officially the coolest dude on YouTube. He has a second channel called Vet Ranch because he is a veterinarian. I have no idea how he has time to document his work and his fun time while editing all the videos to upload for my enjoyment. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I watched his Demolition Ranch videos for hours the other day... you gotta watch the one about bullet proof cups. WTF? XD They fail spectacularly. In one of his videos he was shooting through steel plates and his wooden rig he made he joked about it being something a veterinarian put together... and then at the end of his video he said he was a veterinarian... I thought he was joking at first about vet ranch so I didn't even bother to check it out. Then it popped up on my suggested list and I'm hooked on that too. Their vet office is funded by youtube viewers, which is amazing. I might have to send a small donation, because they do a lot of good work.

  8. The human female idle animation post on the GW2 forum was finally locked by a mod, with no dev response. "It's run its course" apparently, more like they got tired of seeing it stay on page 1 for over a year. XD

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      XD It was only a matter of time before it was locked. I'm really surprised they let it go on as long as they did. Theres a good chance it'll come back as a new emote tho now that they're actually adding new ones.

  9. The new current event was amazing on GW2 because I got to rekt Trahearne XD. Riannoc was way more powerful than him. Trahearne couldn't even put a dent in my HP as I destroyed his break bar and melted him.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I highly enjoyed that fight too. XD I liked that Trahearne actually attacked with his flesh golems that we only saw that one time in the PS. People probably forgot he was actually a necromancer initially. They should have given him reaper shroud for the fight just to screw with everyone. XD

  10. The new firefox update is amazing. It feels a lot faster even if it does look like a Windows 95 program. XD

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I haven't used it enough yet to notice any difference but one positive is it doesn't crash constantly like the old update did. I can actually view websites without having to open Task Manager to close it every five minutes, kinda nice (though I'm not used to using Firefox anymore and this new look is kinda meh).

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The reason I say it looks like a Win95 program because I had the color scheme set to that same dark blue on the task bar. XD its so blocky, when it loaded up for the first time I had flashbacks.

       

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I was using it all day yesterday and aside from the block look at the top, Firefox has never run better. I'm really impressed with how fast it is now compared to what it was.

  11. The Wurm boss on Ember Bay has a wonky scaling issue. I two manned it with a random with ease as we defended two energy pylons each. But when I did it with more people later, elite wurms kept spawning and we almost failed with 1 energy pylon left which almost got destroyed. X_X So I could actually have soloed a world boss by just keeping 1 alive myself if no one showed up. XD

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I was so noob at that event when I first did it, I thought we had to all attack it like taking out Mega Destroyer. XD I jumped down to within range and kept attacking wondering why nobody else was showing up to DPS. lmao. Everyone up on that ridge must have looked at me and facepalmed while they actually played the objective. XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      ROTFLMAO. I'm curious if the wurms can be reflected like the eggs on TT. It would have made a cool challange for guilds like TTS to get some boss achievements. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That would have been cool. Since we can personally damage the wurm, it'll be interesting to see an organized speed kill on the wurm to see just how fast it can be defeated.

      That's what happens in that flag bunker all the time. -_-;

  13. Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I didn't know about the training hall. XD I was getting pissed because the legend up top with the moves kept changing and disappearing when I drew my weapon. So I basically mashed triangle a bunch with a little circle and dodge until I won. The UI is pretty terrible. I might try another round with a different weapon.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'll try out this beta later today if i get the time. It looks decent at least. 

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I went straight for the Training Hall (it's like the third option on the list) when I loaded it up. I tried out almost all the melee weapons before I was even confident enough to do the first hunt (though all you attack is barrels, they don't let you practice against actual monsters). Sadly I used a weapon that I didn't try out in the Training Hall, the Feather Blade. Luckily it was extremely easy to figure out (though I'm still a little foggy on the whole summon insects to attack thing). Believe me though the combos are pretty much smash Triangle, hit Circle when needed (depending on weapon type), hit X to dodge, and R2 to switch modes/use special attacks (again depending on weapon, some weapons change what they are with R2).

  14. Tried to get back into No Man's Sky after the big patch... nah. They took away the boost jump. Having to constantly get back in your ship to take off and refill the booster fuel because the planet is hazardous is tedious. Your 2 levels of protection upgrades last all of 10 seconds before eating away at your shield is annoying annoying enough and wasn't buffed. They took away on foot mobility, so you can't go very far outside your ship or shelter unless its a rare planet that doesn't have a hot/cold/caustic/radioactive hazard. At least with that boost jump you could quickly get back to your ship or find shelter for your protection to recharge. Its just not for me.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I think the only reason some ppl are saying it's good now is because they can build stuff and finally see some random strangers in the game. Maybe they improved the campaign but i doubt it. 

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      They added a bunch of stuff. I was really lost TBH at the start. There was a lot of QoL improvements from using items to the scanner scanning animals further away. Fuel types seem to burn faster... which was my least favorite part of the game originally when it seemed you had to refuel with every use of everything. I mean I get using Hyperdrive once between refuels, but just taking off and landing on a non landing pad surface was pretty annoying. The mobility with the boost jump was great, especially when you upgraded its longevity. I could hit 6-7 things around my landing spot and run back, take off and pick somewhere else to land. Now I'd have to take off for 4-5, and sometimes all 6-7 of them. The only thing you can really do when you land now is gather resources around the area. Eh. I removed it from my PS4 last night.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That sounds incredibly boring. XD

  15. Triple Trouble was kind enough to give me another Regurgitated Armor box. I now I have all the skins... plus an extra box because I didn't realize that there were no boots or leggings skins. I opened all the boxes I've saved up and Vipered my Ranger. I just need trinkets and a back piece which I'm currently working on to give to her. Even with what I have right now, shes fun to play again. LB/S/A got left in the dust after the power creep and it just wasn't up to par. I'm melting things again with SB/A/T.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I'm tempted to viper mine out with the ascended armor set I got from pvp, but I'm a bit hesitant with the expansion leaks indicating it'd be more focused on power. Then again that is easily 4-5 months away still and swapping ascended armor isn't that costly. Are you using the build from metabattle with the odd combo of 4/2 different runes?

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Nope. The nightmare runes are TA dungeon. I'd  have to do a reward track. I might do it later but I went all trapper runes for now. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Twilight Arbor was daily today. A couple quick paths and those runes can be yours! XD I think its stupid that some meta builds are using these old dungeon runes. I saw a wvw build months ago that used runes from Honor of the Waves dungeon. wtf. XD

  16. Trying to finish my dailies, I hop on to WvW and see a fellow JQer getting 4v1ed on a camp site. He was just trying to get his daily like me. I mark/well bombed the group and RS4ed into them taking them all down. Daily accomplished. XD #ReaperLife

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Nice. XD Are you using your pve power reaper build? Or a variant of it? I might swap my reaper to a fear build just to troll. I started doing more WvW dailies to. I'm glad it's getting more popular. Last night at reset the EB map had a queue of 49. Btw master of monuments daily is bugged. I claimed a ruin the other day and didn't get the daily.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I stick with the power build. I destroyed a MM Necro the other day that wanted to chase me down. I'd say spamming all your staff attacks and entering shroud works just as good in WvW as it does in PvP. Most the time people will just retreat. I've won a few 2v1 and 3v1s trying to get back to the zerg. It's always fun to rally off a neutral animal when you get downed only to clean up the guys you have low on health. XD

  17. We're going NORTH!! TO VABBI!!!!!!!! YESSS!! Guardian Axe!!!! SO MUCH HYPE!!!!!! http://imgur.com/a/MXIqt

      DeathscytheX

      Soulbeast looks amazing too. I'll be pissed if this isn't real, its the most elaborate fake ever if thats the case. All the specs look amazing.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That is absolutely the most elaborate fake leaks for this game I've ever seen. I'm going to assume its all legit and Anet has a serious leak issue with their NDA. Mounts look huge, if those are true to scale, I wonder if they'll ever be implemented in the core or HoT maps. If a zerg wasn't bad enough lag at world bosses, imagine the massive fps drop when everyone pops on a mount and the total model size of the zerg is doubled. Anet better have upgraded their engine to be able to handle it or GW2 will become one of the best looking games at a constant 20 fps. x_x

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Unless they coded them like combat tonics. Then it might be ok. I want to say I've seen a ton of snowballs on my screen and it didn't make the fps drop worse than it already was. If I had to guess they leaked them on purpose though. People were starting to get disgruntled again about leggy weapons 2.0 and how they weren't gonna be done. This is def a mood changer. 

  18. 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

      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.

  19. When you play your best games as Mercy ever and no one votes for your card even though you clutch revived the team to victory, and got POTG twice as Mercy. Healers live a underappreciated life, but no one has any problems complaining about not having one. I've almost sunken into fulltime healer on Overwatch because now when I'm not healer, I rage when the one we have sucks. I started playing Ana and Mercy a lot more just to be proficient with them. I'm a trolling beast with Lucio now, to where I can pretty much kill tanks and hit scan heroes doing wall hanging. (Thanks DPStanky for that inspiration) Joke is on everyone else on Double XP weekend though, Healers always get a gold medal for healing... and sadly if I'm Lucio I can pull off 4-5 gold medals if my team is that bad.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      I never had that problem during the free weekend, I usually always got the votes. Then again I wasn't playing with seasoned veterans like you do so that might be the reason.

      If I had the money and we actually had time to play together I'd be your full-time healer, you know how good I am. Meh, it seems a lot of games are falling into this stigma now toward healers. Fuck I rarely get any commendations in FFXIV for keeping people alive when I play Scholar (especially in those fucking hard ass dungeons/raids where healing is a lot harder to do). No love for the support players x.x

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Its Double XP weekend so a lot of people that play for loot boxes rather than fun are on. There were a lot of instances no one picked a tank. If we played, I'd honestly pick Zen in a lot of matches. A team with a main and secondary healer almost always wins against a single healer team. Hell I got paired with a 5 stack the other night were they played Mercy, Zen, Ana, Soldier, Mei. So I tanked every round and we crushed everyone.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      On a funny note, I realized today I killed SSSniperwolf multiple times as Genji a few weeks ago. I figured it was just someone that just took the Psn name because I didn't think she played PS4. But she does. I don't really follow her, and when I do see her posts people hate on her saying she's just a pretty face that's not that good... I can confirm. She's not. XD Me and my friends wrecked her team.

  20. With dailies, and my wood node run, I'm neting a cool 5g a day on GW2. If this keeps up, they'll up the rate that wood drops to flood the market. Gold shouldn't be this easy to make. Along with my rare drops it goes up to almost 10g a day.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Inflation is kicking in fast. Everything is going up in price like crazy. Supplies of goods are dropping with ppl buying up surplus with their extra gold. Steel ingots are almost back up to its all time high:

  22. With GW2s new draw distances, Ive noticed a few improvements in the core game, where map textures load further out, but Southsun Cove is a wreck. XD I went there for the first time in a long time for the daily JP and the increased draw makes some parts look funky and incomplete. After thinking about it for a minute while running around, i realized because the horizon is just a solid blue color making the distant textures look odd as if the map was incomplete. It could be the filter I'm running on SweetFX, but its def bizarre. Its the only map like that, that I've noticed. Maybe because its pretty flat and a plateau.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It might be the sweetfx. I went there yesterday and did karka queen for the first time in half a year and didn't notice anything odd. :P But then again I was streaming the game to my laptop and that always drops the quality a bit. I might have noticed something different if I was directly on my PC.

  23. YouTube bypasses Adblock Plus now. -_-; Ads are more annoying on PC than on the phone. I always wondered what those yellow lines were in the play timeline, they pop banners on the video at those times.
