  1. 100% completed Divinity's Reach and Queensdale. Outside of WvW, I'll enjoy this new run of World Completion with a new character that is vastly different from my main one. #GW2

      If it's like gw1 then it's an emote command line. I believe it was /petname Fuzzy McDoodles for example. :P

      I did Lions Arch today. I cheated and used my teleport to a friend to port both my characters over there that didn't have it yet.

      Lol. Nice. Lower level characters can't use the asura gates until the hit a certain level now right?

      From the videos Ive watched, they're pretty strict about code of conduct, which is another plus. Trolls and assholes get kicked out.

  3. I've spent more gold on my Necro than any other character. I bought the most elite white dye for her today. So many complements on her looks XD!

      DeathscytheX

      I still don't get the hoopla over Abyss. Its 3rd tier rare, and I don't care what people say, it is not darker than Midnight Ice. I've previewed it several times, and I just don't see it.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I think it's only darker if you have some top of the line monitor with amazing contrast, but it looks identical to midnight ice to me on the majority of armor pieces I have.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      But I have a top of the line 24 inch monitor :P. It may look better on metallic surfaces, but on pure cloth is looks like garbage compared to Midnight Ice. It tries to hard to show off the "detail" I guess and ends up looking a little greyish. It doesn't do it for me. Crimson Red does a similar affect that works really well. I guess to each his own.

  4. I have a whole new understanding for Arah path sellers after tonight. 5g is a fair price for the time they put into beating this dungeon. X_x

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      TTS def makes for a confident dungeon run. Even with people dropping, one guy pleaded for a LFG, but the leader was insistent about TTS only. I can see why. An elitist would have raged over having 2 rangers in the party. I love Dungeon night, even if it takes longer than a PUG group for other dungeons, I'm all in for ones I'm familiar with like AC and HotW. Even if it takes longer, it's content I don't regularly do like world bosses, so I enjoy it more.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I have no probs with speed runs, but when you are a slow ass guardian and you get downed trying to skip a mob it's embarrassing in a pug group with no thief. With TTS you can laugh it off. This really is the best guild to be in for a casual player that wants to experience the hardcore parts of the game.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I agree with that leader about tts only. Even one guy can be in the group and if someone gets a disconnect they can easily get another person in there and kick everyone else.

  5. Good to see Treyarch bringing back co-op to the campaign for Black Ops 3. It adds more replay value to the non-multiplayer part of the game, and makes the harder modes more enjoyable.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Now that sounds like something I'd enjoy.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Its great because its going to call for less scripted playthrough. And the mission maps will have to be more wide open.

      I saw you on today Strider :P. I was busy with guild commitments, by the time I was done you were gone. Are you a norn?

      I was on my Sylvari last night for a bit (my Ranger, my Warrior is Norn and my Thief is Human). Mostly just got on to patch the game, didn't really have time to play for long (hence why I was gone when you got done). You'll probably see me on more often now that I hit 60 in FFXIV (though I still need to do my grind for my gear now).

  8. Battlefront is going to be an open beta. DICE is doing it right this time. Def want a better launch than BF4's first weeks.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      The bf4 launch was very bad, but it was EA's own fault for launching it on 5 platforms at the same time. With battlefront being on only 3 they'll have no excuse if there are issues.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      At least becoming a hero is completely RNG. Gives less skilled a chance and prevents camping for it.

    3. Sledgstone

  12. 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.

  14. The new overtime law takes effect 12/1/16. It would require my company to give many of us  $10k raises. I highly doubt that will happen. They'll probably make us all hourly instead. 

    https://www.google.com/amp/khon2.com/2016/05/17/new-rule-expands-overtime-pay-to-millions-of-salaried-workers/amp/#

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Wages seem all out of whack to me now. I have a strong feeling that the more people are going to get paid, the less amount of coworkers they'll have to share the work load with. Sure higher pay generally equals more work, but when it takes away all your free time or you have to do double the work and not get double pay, its complete BS. In the same sense, I think about the $15 an hour minimum wage for fast food workers starting in NY. I wouldn't be surprised if most of those fast food places start running on skeleton crews soon. I've already seen articles show casing new "order your own food here kiosks" at fast food places. Thats one less employee.. and other articles about how the person taking your order at a drive thru can be outsourced to another country like customer service is for many companies. Some person in Indonesia will take your order and input it in the system because McDonalds can pay that guy $2 an hour and eliminate another $15 an hour job. All stores that have salary management are either going to have some less managers or have to change their pay structure to make the money come from somewhere. Of course the money has to come out of the employees somehow, because the CEOs with their multi million dollar jobs will never take a pay cut. And the profit paid out to stock holders will never get decreased.

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Interesting changes, I heard a little about this yesterday with the Wendy's Kiosk thing they're rolling out. While I feel it's a good change because lets face it, low-end salaried managers get the hose when it comes to working hours. I know while I was still working at Wal-Mart most Assistant Managers pulled up to or even more then 70 hours a week and were only paid for 50 (most of them making below or right at this base line of $47k) this will have sweeping repercussions once implemented. Wal-Mart will most likely do away with their profit-sharing program to cover the costs (if they don't fuck their salaried managers) which means the hourly workers won't get that nice little bonus every 3 months if they make profit (it's a weird program honestly, I never fully understood it but I never complained about the extra $300-$500 it put on my check when it paid out). They'll probably cut down on their already bloated management staff as well (at the Wal-Mart I used to work at (and probably work at again if they hire me back) they have 4 Co-Managers and at least 16 Assistant Managers (you could easily cut that to 2 Co's and half as many Assistants)). How other businesses will handle this is up in the air but I'm pretty sure that's what Wal-Mart would do (I mean they already run their stores with the bare minimum employees needed). Sadly Wal-Mart's pay increase in my area was pretty shitty. My friends say they received a 2% raise when this all went into effect but then again they are some of the best paid hourly employees in the company (when I left I was making $17.80 an hour after 4 years (4 normal raises) and 6 cost of living raises and other minor increases, my friend is currently making $18.12 an hour. They're lucky also because when the company dropped starting wages they rolled all that money into their base wages so they wouldn't loose it). Not so much anymore as I've heard the starting wages dropped to $12 an hour for days and I believe $14 an hour for nights (down from $15 and $17 respectively, this is due to the oil boom in the Bakken dropping off drastically). This is still more then the national average for Wal-Mart employees but it's a general idea of what at least one Wal-Mart is paying.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      That's exactly right. A lot of people don't understand that $15 min wage is bad. These are entry level jobs that kids should be doing, not a way of life. Now it's gonna be harder for young people to get their first work experience because no one is going to want to hire a kid for a hugh wage. If everyone could live comfortably making French fries then you'd have less people willing to work for a more skilled occupation that's a value to society. Human drive is why socialism doesn't work and never will. Star Trek economics will never happen. As for the OT rules, yeah if they increase my wage I see longer hours and less help in the future.

  15. I wonder if COD is gonna put out any pre E3 hype like a lot of companies have done the last 2-3 days. They're gonna get overshadowed by BF1 and they might even get boo'ed off the stage. XD

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      They'll try but they'll fail since everyone will be more interested in BF1 and EA Play (which takes place before E3).

      I'll be watching the live footage if I remember to watch it for the BF1 64 player battle and watching all the videos Jack, Level, Matimi0, and XFactor put out for it (and possible Neebs as well).

      Only one guy was Genji, no Widowmakers, they had a Zenyatta, soldier 76, reaper, and Roadhog. There might have been dupes because those are the only heroes I saw on the other team. It only worked because it was on Volskaya. That B point is too advantageous to bunker down in.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. In a move of douchebaggery that should surprise no one,  you must have the Infinite Warfare disc for MWR to work. That's how desperate they are to make you keep their pile of shit in hopes that you'll play it and spend money on supply drops. Fuck you Activision.

      http://www.vg247.com/2016/10/05/call-of-duty-infinite-warfare-legacy-edition-box-reveals-a-whopping-130gb-hdd-requirement/

      130 GB install for both games. O_O Probably because of PS4 Pro, all games coming out will be much bigger because of 4k support. I bet BF1 with all DLC and patches will be at least 250 GB within 8 months of it's release.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It will probably reach 200gigs at its max. Which is still a lot.  I want to say BF4 was 110-120gb with all dlc when I removed it.  

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Pfft, I told you but you all scoffed at me when I said it. Activision is nothing but a conglomerate of greedy ass motherfuckers that want you to buy a game you don't want to get one you do and require you to use the disc of that game to play the one you want. This pretty much guarantees no stand alone release of MWR.

      The disc requirement is only because it's not a DLC, it's a full game so that's why it's justified (in their opinion). Same can be said about the digital version as well. Honestly I expect this to happen more and more when publishers remake a game and bundle it with another because lets face it a lot of games coming out these days suck and the only way to sell them is with a gimmick like this.

      BF4 + all DLC (free and paid with Premium) comes to a total of 70.47 gigs (I'm looking at my storage right now so that's exact). It's not surprising both games will sit at 130 gigs. You're probably looking at close to 70-80 gigs for IW (or more, who knows) and 50-60 gigs for MWR (it's a remaster so the new textures and models will take up a lot of room), give or take a few gigs. So by the end of IW's lifetime you're probably looking at close to 200 like DX said since you can expect at least 4-5 map packs.

  20. The Black Friday noobs are out in full force. On BF1 everyone keeps unlocking and opening the doors on Monte Grappa, and on Overwatch no one can defend anything. Every round is a damn steam roll for attack because people can't defend an objective. I was winning fights I shouldn't win against hard counter characters.

    On a side note, I'm glad Sombra isn't popular. I figure it has a lot to do with her abilities don't provide DPS or heals, but if you utilize them correctly you can go anywhere undetected and put pressure on the objective to let your team through bottlenecks. Now I can contest a point, go invisible and run away, and then come back and contest it again if the opposing team goes back to the choke point. Before I would fly over with D.Va and get destroyed by a 1v6 and my team wouldn't push, with Sombra they have more time to finally pay attention because apparently a whole 6-7 seconds isn't enough to give them confidence to charge in.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      And this is exactly why I decided not to touch BF1 this week (well besides the fact that I have Skyrim to play) because I knew Black Friday would bring a rush of new, untested blood into the fray (and considering my luck I didn't want guaranteed losses, one after another (my luck in Operations has took a turn for the worse, I haven't won one in my last 10 or so)).

      I hate light tanks. I still want DICE to move those to flags only and take them away from the home spawn. Now that I realized the left and right d-pads actually do something in tanks (i had no idea most of my tanks had a quick repair option -_-;), heavy tanks are beastly for me now. I got in one with my brothers the other day and tore up the map for a solid 15 mins in it and capped 2 flags. It was a bit boring for them tho with the limited angles the passenger turrets have.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I should have recorded my 10 kill streak in the breakthrough tank. The driver pulled. Me up to the door at our favorite A flag on Monte Grappa. There were like 5 medics that kept reviving each other and I kept mowing them down with the side cannon. XD

  21. I don't know how anyone can bare to play open world PvE content with the Ele class... at least its base. I haven't unlocked tempest yet. It has no burst damage, its squishy, and its down state is ass. Highest DPS in the game... but only sustained. I can burst mobs better with every other class. Range attacks are the death of you. Doing the Jade Maw heart on Ember Bay was so frustrating, the lack of CC the class has is astonishing. I have no idea how everyone loves it. I'm sure its amazing in fractals and raids, but for casual play its a nightmare. 

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah, I see. That makes more sense. I can't stand thief or elementalist because the slightest lag will get you killed. I'd rather face tank everything with my necro, warrior, ranger or guardian. :D I have a mesmer but I suck with her unless I'm camping greatsword. XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Thief is pretty fun when you get the hang of it. I like it way more than ele because you can always escape if you're in serious danger. I just did bitterfrost completion with my ele and it was the most frustrating thing I've ever done in this game. Ele has no mobility for how squishy it is, its nearly impossible to skip mobs that can range attack. I died 3-4 times trying to get to the second POI in that starting cave, and I died about 3 more times trying to skip the mobs to get to the Svanir vista. With my Thief I could have just used Shadow Refuge, or the short bow skill 4 to skip them all easily.... or I could have fought and melted them all with psychical strikes unlike Ele's slow casting attacks. Unless the new elite spec is amazing, I'll never do WC with an Ele. The only thing I'd do with Ele is WvW because its a monster on the back line.

      I just finished this and It was probably my favorite Netflix Original. They slowly moved away from the comedy and kept it to a minimum as the story got serious. It worked well as keeping the type of comedy they used would have gotten bland with heavy usage.

      I assume Netflix Original means they merely did the dub work. Between Seven Deadly Sins, Ajin, and Kuromukuro, I'd say they did a great job so far. Although they use a lot of the same talent that Funi uses. The female lead also voices Sailor Venus/Lucy Heartfilia and the male lead also voiced Vash the Stampede. I also found some familiars in the supporting cast like Milly Ashford, Inspector Zenigata, and Lelouch Lamperouge. A lot of the supporting cast hasn't done much in Funi's circle so it's nice to hear different voices every once in a while. Not everyone is as talented as Christopher Sabat.

  23. Overall I like the collection for the new back piece this LWS3 ep, but I hope they don't make this the standard for the expac. Its cool to have a few here and there, but just one is causing the same type of issues that legendary journeys too... My inventory is cluttered with BS because I have to hold on to useless crap and turn them all in at the same time instead of as I get them. Even with max bags I've overburned my inventory twice today.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      T1-3 isn't bad because you can turn everything in as you get them, but for some reason T4 you have to turn in like 4 at a time. I probably would have waited on doing some of these if I would have known. I have like 6 things in my inventory waiting to be fused with druid stones, including the 2 I already fused and can turn in until I fuse the right other 2.

      Thankfully the Hidden Garden one is just a orchard to the side, and none of the JP is required. I'm so tired of doing that damn thing. BTW when you start planting seeds, don't leave immediately. Fire Orchard nodes pop for you to mine after you plant them.

      I hate collections like that. I swear they made them just to encourage bag slot purchases.

  24. I'll give credit where its due. Microsoft had a pretty good E3 presentation. But sadly for them the XBox One X is like the Wii U in title. Its going to get them screwed up. On top of that what percentage of the base is going to be using 4k? $500 is steep. Its like the Goldstar 3DO... unnecessarily ahead of its time. They had some time exclusive stuff, but Sony had real exclusives like Spider-Man, Days Gone, and of course God of War.

      Problem is why would you shell out money for a console with a 4k BD Player if you don't have a TV capable of playing it? I think this is the reason Sony didn't go with one, why waste money and potential sales due to cost when most of your consumer base doesn't have the tech to run it. Then again I say this after buying a PC more powerful than the XBoneX/PS4 Pro will ever be (though I do not have a 4k BD player or 4k monitor and I wouldn't waste money on it. 4k gaming is a pipe dream that only the super rich can afford and at that it's not true 4k gaming since most PC's aren't powerful enough to run it). I didn't really catch the conference since I've lost all interest in E3 (I get more excited for TGS and Gamescom) but I got the gist from Twitter (and most people were pretty underwhelmed by MS's showing).

      Reason why Sony has more exclusives is because they are actually focused on gaming, not being the center entertainment hub of you're room (which is MS's big thing for the XBoneX).

      I'm going to be salty when XBone gets the early access to all the Anthem content. I know its coming since they get the Battlefield stuff. Kinda sad that we got Activision this time when last gen it was flip flopped. I know I was glad to get Destiny exclusives before ya know... I never got them. *cough*Hawkmoon*cough*. But fuck COD.

      You know it's going to happen what with Playstation having timed exclusivity for Destiny 2 content and sadly it's only fair. The XBone hasn't really had any exclusive DLC for games that are really worth anything (their only real exclusive worth anything is Halo and those honestly aren't worth the console anymore).

  25. Well I guess I put off buying a video card for too long. All the prices have skyrocketed by 50% or higher because of some bullshit ethereum mining thing. I'm def not paying these prices. I was planning on doing it next month when I financially had a chance to do so. I guess I'll have to hope my video card last a bit longer.

      That's a bunch of 1070s in that pic. I'd wait until black Friday at this point to buy one. By then the current rush will be over and prices should go back to normal. That and half these ppl will probably flood eBay with cards around that same time. Other miners that don't care about efficiency as much will buy those and new cards should be normal prices again.

      nVidia is suppose to be releasing a special card for these people in the future that focuses on electrical efficiency which is what these people are after. Hopefully that will alleviate the problem.

      That would be good. I was reading this topic earlier:

      The flood of new miners is jacking up the price of the GPUs but also dropping the price of the return of investment. If it continues dropping, the gpu prices will probably rebound before black friday anyway. Some of these people are saying they make like $7 a day per 1080ti, $780 per card investment not counting tax. It would take at least 4 months to start earning a profit per card and thats not taking into consideration the cost of electricty they'd be using for a 24/7 max load per card. All in all I bet it takes close to 6 months to start making a profit. But once the profits come in, they're constant. Probably $180 a month per card unless the rates go back up to about $9 a day, then it'd be like $220 or so. But how long do these cards really last under that work load? I bet they last maybe a year at best, and these ppl like to sell them on ebay and buy a new card so the initial investment gets subsidized that way. They're probably making profit 6 months out of the year. Lower quality GPUs, like a 1060 6gb would make less money per day due to lower processing and the more people that get in on it lowers the total profits significantly. I bet the 1060s will be the first cards to go back to regular price.
