  1. It has been a long time coming, but after all this waiting it is finally here. I am getting up early tomorrow, getting all ready and then finally I can look forward to going back into something I haven't been into for ages. Yeah, my eye test is at 9:30am tomorrow at Specsavers. What do you mean there is something else to look forward to? As I have missed a lot, is it worth playing it right now or just wait till tomorrow? Not done a hard mode Oryx but being at 315 and not having raided for months don't fancy getting into that just yet. Only thing I wo
  2. Is it wrong I see all these reviews, I see all this feedback, and I STILL refuse to be swayed until at least a week after release? Anyone would think I bought 2015 or something. Really going to need you guys to test it out and tell me the online isn't terrible multiple times before I budge. God dammit Codemasters, even when you apparently do a good thing I ain't buying.
  3. Bit puzzled by those competition requirements. They seem very restrictive. I'm not entirely sure why they would set a cash limit on it unless they are thinking of making their own league with big monies. Is it all harmless enough, does stuff like Halo and CoD have the same kind of terms? I'm out of the loop on this one. Used to either League of Legends style one top tier competion run by Riot, or DOTA and anyone being able to do anything. Also while all these additions are great it has taken them two fucking years to get private matches and proper clan support put in the game.
  4. Assuming he is still playing him, maybe try and look out for ChrisG's Guile . I'm not aware of anyone else maining him that is notable (might get the likes of Nuckledu pulling one out). Probably some I've missed though. Zero idea who is going to win, but echo sentiments it is likely to be an all Asia top 8.
  5. Cannot disagree with any of that as such. I just don't see why the option is there. I don't like how Bungie decides what we can and cannot matchmake. Sure it more than likely would be bad, I just don't see why I don't have the option of joining random idiots. As it is if I don't find enough rllmuk types I have to go on a LFG site for the exact same experience above. I would prefer to cut out the middle man.
  6. As I said originally, I will likely be getting this anyway despite my moaning. For all that I see a lack of content for the price, I can guarantee I will get a good amount of enjoyment out of the expansion. Even if it is only for a month or so. Many games I buy for full price I don't play for that amount of time, or I don't enjoy anywhere near as much. For all the flaws from some of the DLCs you can at least be sure it won't drop below good, as least to begin with. I just wish we could have some more for the price. More brand new stuff, not older stuff redone slight
  7. Right, but releasing year one weapons again is fair game? Advertising as a selling point on the trailer an original Destiny weapon? You also cannot tell me these enemies are going to have anywhere near as much as a difference as those introduced in TTK. Sure the Taken fought completely differently but they were still reskins. I would love to know why it is a silly complaint when Bungie have history for release tiny amounts of new content with DLC. Hey guys, here is some totally new hive weapons for the Crota raid [shotgun with hive bits stuck on like Bad Juju]. Appa
  8. It sounds so far like the House of Wolves DLC, only with an actual raid. So I am tempering my expectations. The fact the trailer says a singular new strike shows how much content we should be expecting. I am not expecting a long story mode at all. The Gjallerhorn thing is pathetic though. "Please pre-order, you can even have what used to be the best rocket launcher.". So...reusing old assets again then? Much like how these new enemies look like reskins in the way of the Taken? Fooling nobody here Bungie. The price and the content is going to make all the differe
  9. Well that ruined a good game. Hibs beat Rangers in a cracking cup final in the last minute. Then Hibs fans spill onto the pitch. Stupid enough. Rangers fans then come out to meet them. Sky talking about fights everywhere, and fans still in pitch now. Just a massive mess.
  10. Got my Fighting Commander 4 through the post, so had a play with some of the other characters in trials. Found Necali's the easiest of any set so far. He seems someone I should put some time into. Combos that don't take a lot of execution to do, a dragon punch and a command throw sounds right up my street. Fact he also does so much damage is a bonus. Chun also needs some time as her normals are good and it is super easy to cancel her cr.mk into something useful, we Third Strike now. Got destroyed by Jonster online in a few lobbies. Good games, not a big surprise bu
  11. Being in the same situation, I would recommend the Discord chat as always people up for a game. They have been very gentle with me, they even supplied the lube. Battle lobbies are probably your best bet for watching people, especially if you like seeing Karin beat the crap out of me. The Capcom SFV YouTube channel is putting up character videos which give a good basic overview of all the moves and the normals, I have found them to be a good place to start. Guy called Bafael has made some YouTube videos and other stuff, found them linked from Crush Counter website (on tablet, not
  12. I have a question. Keep forgetting to use V-Trigger meter, and I know V-Reversals exist but have never used them. Are there any specific situations to use them? It seems like a measure to gain some space, doesn't seem a tremendous amount of follow up. Am I missing a use or do you use it for say not getting trapped into a corner? Unless every characters acts a little differently in which case welp.
  13. Well, this is fabulous. Even if I'm stinking up the Discord with "What's this do, why is that shiny, what's a Ryu?" I'm having a great time. Thanks to Qazi and co for getting me into the lobby and facing many, many beatings. One of these days I'll try and learn another character, but it might have to wait till I figure out what the turbulent buttons make the turbulent wind do. Did get to see a very tense Bison/Gief and Mika/Sakura match though. I love lobbies, just get to see people go to town and learn the tech. Also, learn what the moves actually do which is always a bonus.
  14. Just picked this up and dusted off my old EX2 to give it a bash. For all the mixed reception I have read about it, at absolutely bronze level I am having a great time. Not seen much in the way of droppers, losing because I keep cocking up and not getting angry about it and I don't even mind the waits between matches on PC as I can just put a stream on the other monitor. Only tried a few characters so far. Ryu seems very Ryu, I have no idea how to Mika and I really don't think I'm going to get on with Alex. Ever since trying the EX headstomp and not getting 3S effect from it I h
  15. Well the new update certainly makes things a bit more pleasant to level up. Played a few hours, didn't really any light levels but did get my Bubble Bro armour up to same level as Sunbreaker build. From reading Reddit CoE is supposed to be pretty easy this week. Shame I am a bit under levelled but if anyone is free this evening then I am free for that, nightfalls and other stuff. Just at 307 light though. PS I would probably exchange a testicle for an updated Lord of Wolves. From CoE. Just saying.
  16. HotS is an excellent shout. As mentioned it strips a lot of things away some of the other MOBAs have. No need to worry about what items to buy, no last hitting creeps or denying, everyone shares XP. Also no all chst I believe so you only have to worry about your own team trying to tilt you. I find DOTA the most complicated simply because there is so much to learn. LoL is much simpler in comparison but still has a load of stuff in it. DOTA certainly has a better tutorial plus you get all the heroes from the start. I am a LoL man myself, but you do have the whole levelling up a
  17. That picture is a nice shader. All the characters have PoE gear on (can tell by the Titan with the stupid helmet and shoulder thing). I don't mind so much the twitch streams to hype the content, I think they worked well the last few times. The main issue is it is still a month away. By that time Division will likely have had the first update, which is supposed to be incursions (which may or may not be raids). If this new Destiny stuff is just old content retooled (and I doubt they are going to be giving much new stuff away for free) then why would I play it over nice sh
  18. As harsh as it is to say, what could have saved Jules? He went head first into a digger/similar at speed. Short of a fairly reinforced cockpit, what would have stopped that? Open to suggestions, I honestly don't know. I am glad the drivers can see through the halo, but not sure how they will get on for seeing the starting lights. I can see both points - safety first and foremost but at what point do you just put a closed cockpit on it and call it a day? Then again I am sure if we are having this discussion then much more intelligent people are also trying to find a sol
  19. Not really a big athletics fan, but being lucky enough to be in that magnificent stadium on that night was unreal. I didn't think I would ever hear a louder noise than the crowd roaring at Ennis as she rounded the last bend. I don't even think she needed to win that race to get gold, but might as well go for it. Then we had Farah in what I think was the last race of the night. Absolute bedlam, I don't think I will ever hear a noise so loud in my entire life. Certainly I will never witness another sporting moment that good live in my entire life. It is all downhilll fro
  20. Seems a but lacking for such a big announcement. New game confirmed, new expansion confirmed and an update which will increase light level before that. Thing is, that is all we get. Almost as if it is a panic announcement to try and placate the fanbase/stem more people from stop playing. Thank you for your patience? God Deej is such a tool. I am also reading stuff about people chucking themselves off ledges in Crimson Doubles for reasons. Not been in the loop for ages, any idea why?
  21. Completely changed my mind on this. Doing story mission on hard is pretty challenging and good fun. I don't mind the bullet spongey enemies as such, but is suffers from vanilla Destiny problem of shotguns not being powerful enough to justify the range. Main example being facing a yellow dude rushing me, unloading 8 shotgun shells into the dude at point blank range and not dropping him. Had a really good session in dark zone. Less random ganking and more groups of people either going rogue or hunting them. Culminating with a manhunt against 4 rogues with about 15 normal players running up
  22. I had a few hours blast on it, I just don't think it is for me. I don't mind the shooting, feels fine. Cover can be a little awkward but nothing game breaking. Did the story mission, felt alright. I'm just not a fan of the Dark Zone. Now don't get me wrong. I have no problem with Ubisoft choosing to make it like Eve low-sec space (higher rewards, but PvP enabled). I tried it out, managed to get a successful extraction for some stuff, but then ended up getting ganked every time I tried again. One time I just got one shot by a higher level player, my dude just fell over. I cannot see me p

    Full credit to him continuing and not being overly salty about it. I like how someone on the couch mentions he warned Andy about it, and told him to move the console. Shame, ruined a really interesting run. Not as pumped for Bloodbourne as I should be, this pre-patch run relying on this one jump isn't anywhere near as exciting for me as watching a full boss run. Tempted to stop to see this reverse boss Metroid run through.
  24. Some of the locked arts are the ones behind affinity missions. Game decides to tease you with them, then doesn't explain what missions unlock which abilities. The other arts will be behind the other classes. So if you are maxed at drifter and using the long sword, the sword arts associated with the top row classes will also be shown as locked. You need to change class to get them. Same with skills. There is very little reason when playing through the game normally to stick with a class when maxed. Always try and change when you hit ten. The only exceptions would be for hard bosses, where
  25. This game has 90% of the plot in the last hour. Just when I thought my previous story concerns couldn't get worse... ENDING SPOILERS The horrible story execution has completely soured me on the game. I could forgive the many faults up to a point, but there is too much blatantly bad decisions here to make me like it. Despite having 60 hours on the clock. Nope, I have no idea either.
