    Destiny 2 - Sekiro's out on Friday

    I've reached the point now where I've stopped paying that much attention to levelling up efficiently - as you said, there's no realy incentive or urgency to get to 700, with The Reckoning really the only activity I'm locked out of right now. Part of me is also wondering whether the Power Surge bounties are going to be a regular thing with every new expansion that comes out in the future. Which gives even less of a reason to be spending time levelling up now... In any case, it's now perfectly possible to just dip into a couple of activities on a weekly basis to make some slow and steady progress. Skipping from Gambit to Crucible to Strikes to Flashpoint to Xur bounty to... other stuff feels pretty darn satisfying. The only thing I'm staying clear of is the Dreaming City weekly bounties - far too much effort for the rewards on offer.

    Fuck that D-grade Matthew McConaugheyalike. Vanguard for LIFE. I dunno. Weird part of my brain feels like Bungie picked up a couple of the Telltale staff after that studio imploded. A lot of "Drifter will remember this choice" vibes. The change in dialogue that you get in Gambit matches is a nice touch though, and the quest is relatively straightforward... but it's all a bit lukewarm, which pretty much sums up this season overall.

    I think I end up killing myself 9 out of 10 times whenever I try to use Wardcliff. Wondering whether non-cluster bomb rocket launchers are going to be viable now, considering the damage buff they received. 30% increase for trace rifles too. Are we back to the Coldheart meta...?

    Crackdown 3

    Loving this. Too much fun. Only gripe - playing on PC, the game seems to stutter for a few seconds every time I pick up an orb. Anyone else seeing this?

    100% thought this was going to be a Wings of Glory thread. I'll see myself out.

    Highlighted the important part there. I would take a couple of C-tier story missions and a few new exotics over Black Armory. Every time. Black Armory, day one, asked me to continue grinding out existing weekly content in order to see one or two glorified Horde modes, and some other stuff around the periphery. And as Bungie still - still!! - have not come up with a good answer to get more individual players into accessing new raids, I have no desire to engage in any of this. I was on board with them trying new things. Probably shouldn't have spent money on it before seeing what that looked like exactly, but fuck me I guess. But I really hope they change course at least somewhat for the two remaining releases.

    Yeah, fuck all of this. I'll take a Curse of Osiris-level disappointment over whatever the hell this is any day of the week. At least with that, I paid for it, I played it, and moved on with my merry life.

    Honestly, I've no idea. I know there are services/companies out there that do that sort of thing - maybe Etsy would be a good starting point? https://www.etsy.com/listing/260191861/custom-painted-miniatures?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_e-toys_and_games-games_and_puzzles-board_games-other&utm_custom1=a2c9d516-457a-478c-aaa9-124d148d7c87&utm_content=go_304504715_51594849071_233324591408_aud-318756285347:pla-314262775187_c__260191861&gclid=Cj0KCQiAsdHhBRCwARIsAAhRhskyvBOX_2eaQeOxpE42TieLQKIanzmr38huJwlEetDmIPRgEgTTP-saAsLuEALw_wcB Of course, the real answer is to pick up a starter Vallejo paint kit and get cracking yourself. I was hopeless at this stuff a year ago - now it's one of the most rewarding and relaxing things I do. You'd be surprised at how good even a simple base coat and a quick wash can look.

    Yeah, they're not bad at all. The only thing that went slightly awry is the basing on those silver knights - I wanted to replicate the Kiln of the First Flame area from the end of DS1, where they're basically standing on a ground made entirely of ash. So I figured i'd just layer on some grey flock using PVA glue until I got to an amount that worked. The theory was sound, and it does look okay, but now I have six minis that are basically leaving little deposits of flock wherever they go. Kind of a pain. The stuff is just too fine to stay completely stuck, so I'd probably do a standard grey base with some minimal coverage on top of that if I did it again.

    It is indeed! I backed it on Kickstarter, and even though I received the base game over a year ago (and all of the expansions since...), I never got round to painting any of it until now. My number one takeaway - when in doubt, drybrush something.

    'twas the season... to paint a bunch of Dark Souls minis! Learned a bunch during the process, and tried some new basing styles out (including treating myself to a few of the GW texture paints). Pretty happy with the results...

    PlayStation VR

    Yeah, finally managed to hook mine up the other night. Wipeout VR is just something else - this thing is in my home. I can play this incredible racing game that feels like it fell out of space and time whenever I want! What a world. Tetris Effect is wonderful, and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is fun as hell, even if we've played it before. Really impressed by Statik too. Definitely worth the $6 or so I spent on it.

    So this arrived yesterday. Look out, My name is Byf. It's put together nicely, and only came it at around $15 or so. Lovely.
