  1. 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

      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.

      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

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

      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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

    1. DeathscytheX
    2. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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
  14. 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

  15. 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

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

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. Looking forward to trying turrets in this weekend's Division open beta.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      There is no hard mode for the new mission fyi or at least by what I can see

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Don't use turrets in the DZ. I read that they are broken right now. Someone can entice your turret to shoot them turning you rogue and they can kill you without penalty.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Heh, everyone was using them today while I was running around in it. I'll be switching to scan pulse and heals when I go into the DZ, too many enemies and the turret does shit damage and is shit at taking away hate as well.

  22. Ordered a USS Reliant model for my computer desk. Been looking for one for a long time.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Star Fleet has some of the best looking ships, aside from borg ships whats your favorite alien ships? I always liked the D'deridex class Romulan warbird.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Klingon Bird of Prey has always been my favorite non federation ship

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Heh, don't look at some of the new Starfleet ships from STO Sledge. Some are god awful ugly. Nice find, the Miranda class was always one of my favorite designs aswell.

  23. Just watched Atari: Game Over on Netflix. I feel bad for the guy that made ET since he was given 5 weeks to do it. He made Yar's Revenge too, but he'll always be remembered for ET.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      That's one of the major problems with the industry and why some people don't like working in it. You make a great game and everyone wants to take credit (even if they did nothing), you make a shitty game and all the blame is put on one guy. I loved Yar's Revenge and that's what I'll remember him for. I really need to watch this though, been on my queue for months.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It's really good. ET could have been way ahead of its time if they weren't trying to make a last minute cash grab deadline. The concept was really good.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Seeing the promotional work that went into the game really emphasized that cash grab. They built it up so huge. Commercials, an interview with Stephen Spielberg saying it was fun.. and then after christmas all the returns starting coming in with people pissed. lol.

  24. It's really not worth being a douche in the Darkzone. You could mark yourself for a bunch of junk loot.

  25. Rurouni Kenshin is on netflix... wow old school.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I think its only 1 season tho.. the same season that got repeated so many times. lol. The last 30 eps of Kenshin were never aired in the US. But the Shishio story arc was definitely the best imo.
