Wow that's a lot later then I expected. Hmmm, now do I still go through and buy my PS4 when I originally planned to (sometime in March) or do I wait till right before Destiny comes out? I'll definitely have to think that through (though I most likely will buy it earlier, only because I want Watchdogs).

Thats basically a year from now. O_O It better not have any issues considering the late release date. I'm really looking forward to this game, but they need to make sure they get the bugs out. Defiance was so buggy I have no interest in buying another game from Trion.. period. I've never owned a Bungie game and my initial experience with them will be this game. I hope they don't drop the ball. I'd rather they keep delaying it until it has solid functionality and gameplay.

Of all the Halo games I've ever played, none of them had game breaking bugs at launch. However, this is their first time going multi-platform. I think a summer beta test is a good move so long it's June or July, and not August. A good 8-10 week test would do some good.

I think the multi-platform option all these developers chose was stupid. BF4 should have been a next-gen release only game. Instead they're splitting their support teams into fixing a broken game on 5 platforms instead of 3.. and its a noticeable issue for DICE/EA right now.

 

Watchdogs is probably delayed because of current gen system errors. If not for ps3 and xbox 360, they could have focused on getting the game done and released by now.

Obviously COD Ghosts had no problems with supporting 5 platforms.. especially considering that game was all based off old tech. It wouldn't surprise me if the next COD after Ghosts was still released on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as next gen. But some of these developers are shooting themselves in the foot. They have all this new tech at their disposal and they have to make 2 versions of the game and turn down effects, graphics, change controller layouts, etc. all to release the game on even more outdated systems than initially thought, because of all the delays.

 

Destiny coming out for PS3 and Xbox 360 almost a year after the next gen systems came out seems pointless to me unless the games are cross platform like DC Universe, with the old gen systems still playing in the same servers, but with restricted graphics.

If it's as good as they're promising and as good as it's been looking in gameplay videos I don't doubt it'll see that many sales. Look at WoW, at one time it had over 10 million subscribers plus who knows how many people outside of that actually bought the core game and all it's expansions (more then 10 million and it's been out for 10 years this Nov). The only thing, as I said, is if they can deliver what they promised. That will be the main deciding factor on whether it can move that many units (I know I'll be one of those 10 millions sales).

If anyone can do it it's bungie. Although I was never a huge fan of Halo, I do respect the fact that each game was unique and different from the previous unlike the cookie cutter approach that most fps seires rely on. They aren't afraid to delve into the unknown and take chances. I can't wait to see what they have put together.

I depends on the testing period. The first few days are going to be a wreck... there are going to be so many people trying it out, but as I've said, this is the best possible thing that can happen. Destiny is going to get a true stress test, unlike every AAA multiplayer experience out there. Open beta use to be common, and one day everyone got stuck up and hired "professional testers"... why pay for something you can get for free?

 

I'm not looking for something thats going to blow my mind, I kinda want that to wait for the actual game, but I would like an epic small taste of what is yet to come. I'm sure there will be plenty of fire team public events. I'm looking at 3 level cap increases, a minor boss, and some pvp testing.

Professional testers will test exactly what the company wants them to test, hence why they use them. Plus they use an extremely rigid template as to what can be considered a bug, something your everyday average joe has no idea about. Open betas are the way to go but sadly companies want a true test, not just 1 million+ people to send them random reports about what they think is a bug (to be considered a bug in a professional setting the tester must be able to provide proof  the bug exists and proof that said bug can be replicated, something not all open testers are willing to do). This is the reason there is a game tester job in most companies, they want a professional tester who's done this more then a few times to test and find these bugs. Open betas these days are used more as server stress tests then anything else hence why you only see open testing in the last 1-2 months before the game is released. The things you learn when you go to school for this.

 

I'm with DX. I'm not really looking for a mind blowing experience. What I'm looking for is just to see if they are going to be giving us some of the stuff they promised on launch or not (like the public events) and I want to get my hands on each of the classes so I can learn how each plays and what one I like the most. Outside of that I'm already sold on everything else.

After watching this a few times, you know what I noticed that I really like? Its so simple, yet I haven't seen it done before. The mini map points out where you are being attacked from. I like that sooo much better than the edge of the screen method. I utilize the mini map in any game I play that features it. I much rather refer there than 4 different corners of the screen. I tend to have tunnel vision when I'm focused on an objective and I'm never able to tell where I'm getting hit from otherwise.

I'm glad the loot will be separate. I really like how they are incorporating MMO style elements into an FPS. Elite armor, individual loot, co-op, but then it lets you have your weapons available across all classes and that is great. Depending on how I end up playing this game, I might switch back and forth between sniping and being a tank that rushes into the mass of enemies.

Yeah thats a big plus for me because I'm digging that red revolver I keep seeing in the videos. I'd definitely rock a pistol and a shotgun.... I'm interested in seeing a shotgun, they mentioned it, but I don't recall seeing any so far.

      My Mobile game spending habits have been pretty tame. I'll drop a few dollars on Arknights banners now and then. Azur Lane, I have it to a science to generally go into events with 100+ cubes to get everything. But lets face it. Azur Lane makes it's money off skins... and the best way to get skins is to make it easy to get the ships. Arknight's skins are mad expensive, and I only found out last week that the Siege one I really want is gonna be free with Contingency Contract coming up! Other than that, they don't do much for me as the E2 art looks amazing as is... and I'm the only one that gets to see them so I can't flex.

      Azur Lane tho I can flex with my defense fleet in PvP. Plus you can have multiple secretaries grace your home page at random. Being a man of culture, I can appreciate all the fan service bikini skins they throw out there... but it ain't for me. The in game chibis have to look just as good as the secretary full art to get my money. That being said... they just had to bring out a bunch of black dress skins.... and FINALLY Enterprise gets a skin that's not prudishly modest. INSTAPURCHASE! I went to town on the Qipao skins a few months ago. I'll probably buy most of these as well. I'll buy skins for characters I don't have yet if the art is good and the in game model looks cool. (I'm so glad I bought that Taihou L2D qipao now that I have her )

      It was snowing just 2 weeks ago and now it's practically a heat wave with multiple days in the 80s. I got my window air conditioners in, but the outdoor support for my big one broke when I was testing it. The window I need this AC unit in is extra wide and can't support the weight of the unit so last year I used an umbrella stand with a metal fence post with a welded pipe on the top. It worked great, but the umbrella stand just not have been good for the weight and it snapped during my test.
      So I spent today making a new support brace out of wood. I used a 4x4 and some scrap 1x6s I had from deck work I did last weekend. It's working good, I just need to fill dirt under the bottom of the base boards and then place some of my huge ass rocks all over the base for extra stability. It's all pressure treated wood so it should last for years.



      Probably hard to tell from the pics but that's like 40-50 pounds of wood.

      I got to Rear Admiral on Azur Lane's PVP. My fleet isn't meta so I probably won't finish at that rank. I can't compete with all 120s with a retrofit Warspite. Shes way too strong and its been a year and a half since they had the event to fully retro her. I'm 20 blueprints away from maxing Monarch and I got Amagi to 100 already. It's my backline that's holding me back. I'll have Tashkent, Belfast, and Ayanami to 120 by next week. 
      So many new ships tho. I got everything on the new rate up except Swifty. The French event is coming up and I pounded out 20 clears of SP3 to get Tartu. I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize you could get her for free until 2 days ago. I'll have to expand my dock again soon.... but anyway I hope they bring back the Warspite retro event... its BS it needs an event. They should have put it in a grindy head pat mission. Sandy too... I hear i need her AA for world 12. I'm half way through 10 right now.

      I've used Yahoo mail for the better part of 20 years now. A few years ago they started adding these intrusive adds that look like emails, and you can accidentally click on them. They've always had ads on the side or as a video when the inbox is empty, but these are annoying. I guess one of the last Ublock updates made is possible to suppress these ads. Every once in a while I'll see it for a second loading in and it goes away when Ublock blocks it.
      Now Yahoo has a pop up that demands the blocker be turned off or it reverts back to "old yahoo mail". At first this was an easy fix to where you could just turn the new version back on after it reverts... which serves no purpose outside of looking modern. But now you can't swap back until you tun it off or pay a sub fee... my email bookmark loads into the new version anyways, but the tactic has become more aggressive to where you can maybe click 2 times before it pops up again.
      I mean what a joke. I'm not disabling my blocker out of spite. I use my phone email app more anyways, which blocks all ads. Yahoo gains nothing since they freely give out the POP3 info for you to use outlook or any other 3rd party email program that their ads can't be seen on.

      Its finally warmed up around here. It snowed earlier this week and we've had over night freezing multiple days. And then abruptly it was almost 80 yesterday. now it's back down to the 60s, but at least it looks like winter is finally over. Now I can get some more yard work done without freezing my ass off. Lol.
      And wtf.. we have gifs again? I thought it was disabled. Lol. Maybe ipb re-enabled it at some point and I never noticed.
