    Best airplane table games

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

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    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.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    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.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    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.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    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.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    '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.

    So doing the offering to the Oracle/audience with Mara Sov gives you a new, dedicated cutscene this week that advances the story. Expect spoilers everywhere for it, so you probably want to go do that quest as soon as possible if you want to see it for yourself. I can't be doing with the grind, so spoilered below. Don't click if you don't want to know, as even the title is mildly spoiler-y.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Yeah, this is... not great. I'm already kind of burned out with doing the same weekly Forsaken stuff to up my light level to 600 - the idea that what little there seems to be in this expansion requires you to get back into that same LL grind, with no immediately 'new' experiences is not a good look at all. And I'm still hunting the Frigid Cocking Jackal. Must have burned at least 500 stems at this point. Almost entirely convinced that the drop is broken.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I'm going with Dead Cells. It has the Jeff Seal of Approval (tm), most of the other staff were pretty positive on it, and Jason could end up being a quiet force in the background, urging it forward when someone else inevitably suggests it. If not that, then Celeste, Tetris or Into the Breach. It's gotta be the year of the indie - can't see any of the AAA stuff this year having enough support. RDR2 is dead in the water, Spider-Man won't have anyone willing to die on the hill for it... Mayyybe God of War, but I still can't see it. I actually think Black Ops 4 will have a strong showing between Jeff, Dan and Abby, but nobody else really beyond that.

    That's fine. This is all fine. I didn't want to play any other games anyway. It's fine.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Yeah, I've been doing one per day. About all my psyche can handle at this point. Unfortunately neither my Hunter nor Warlock have done anything past D2 base game completion, so I don't really have any other options apart from continuing to pull the RNG lever with my Titan. Well, I mean, I could abandon this madness completely and just stop trying, but obviously that's not going to happen.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I am one weapon away from getting the Wayfarer title. That weapon is the Frigid Jackal. The only way to get the Frigid Jackal is to decrypt Braytech Schematics with Ana Bray. Depending on her fickle mood, she will turn one of those into a random Braytech weapon. So, either 18 Kelvins, Niflheim Frost, etc. Hilariously, the game does not take into account whether you already have one of those weapons before deciding which one to give you. It will very happily give you one that you already have. I know this as fact. So, every time I decrypt a Braytech Schematic, I have about a one in four or five chance to get the weapon I need. Fair enough. However, the only way to get Braytech Schematics is by unlocking Sleeper Nodes on Mars. Doing that involves turning four Resonance Stems into an Override Frequency, which will point you to a random Node on Mars that you have to hunt down and open up. They pop out a Braytech Schematic at a rate of about one in every ten that are opened. Resonance Stems can be obtained by pretty much doing anything on Mars and Mars alone. However, the fastest farming method is generally to run the Ma'adim Subterrane Lost Sector over and over again. Probably around 1 Stem every two minutes. So, to recap, for the past week or so, I've ran through the same cave for many hours to obtain a thing that I turn 4 of into another thing, which points me to another thing, that has about a 1 in 10 chance to drop another thing, which when redeemed, has about a 1 in 4/5 chance to give me the thing I actually want. This is a silly video game.

    Star Wars!

    Yes, you need the Slave One 1.0 cards/dials to play with it in v1.0 rules. The one you bought only comes with 2.0 stuff. eBay is your best bet. If you ever wanted to move to 2.0, you would need to either pick up a Rebel and Empire conversion kit (probably unwise, as you don't have that much stuff to begin with), or just start from scratch and pick up a new 2.0 core set. The 2.0 core set only comes with enough cards/dials to cover what's in that box (one X wing, two TIEs, same as before). The changes they made to 2.0 have been received pretty positively overall. Turrets are less broken, the Force is a great new mechanic, and medium-base ships are a nice addition too. Plus a bunch of other tweaks that have generally made the game more enjoyable to play.

    And just as Sleeper gets hit with the soft, bouncy nerf-hammer, Queenbreakers Bow dropped for me yesterday. Did another little dance.

    Wavesplitter is too much fun in PvP. The ammo economy for it is abysmal, as it seems to be for all trace rifles right now, but even with that, it can melt someone from halfway across the map. The Supercharged Battery perk really seems to make a difference too - it goes into overdrive for around 10 seconds after picking up an orb of light. And I love how that's reflected visually in the ADS display. More of exotic weapons feeling this exotic, please.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I swear this game knew that it had wronged me. Immediately after, I get a Better Devils with Outlaw and Kill Clip, and one of the new exotic Ghosts. Still. We're in a fight. This is a fight now.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Hey, let's play a game! Finally managed to complete the Powerful Gear Iron Banner quest today for getting 100 precision kills. Here's my loadout before I cashed in the reward: Power - 549 Primary - 550 Secondary - 548 Heavy - 552 Helmet - 551 Arms - 548 Chest - 552 Legs - 543 Mark - 555 The reward dropped at 554. Which slot do you think this stupid fucking shithouse bastard game dropped it in? Answers on a postcard please.
  22. lewismistreated

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    It's honestly not that bad. Especially since that once you get an elemental percent up to 100, it stays locked there and can't go down. So just run Solar on super/energy/heavy, kill things until you lock it in, change to something else, repeat. The Luna's Howl quest though, I absolutely will be deleting. Fuck that whole noise.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    Just got Wavesplitter as a drop from the new mission. I may have done a little dance.

    Destiny 2 - Out Come The Big Guns (part deux, redux)

    I think Crimson just negates a lot of the issues I generally have with using hand cannons in Crucible, the most pressing being that I can't hit shit for shit. My 2nd or 3rd 'true' HC shot might be a crit, but by that point i've already missed enough for them to turn around and murder me. Crimson just made it a lot more forgiving to get at least a few body shots in first, increasing the odds of me geting that last crit in by luck if nothing else. But yeah. Do whatever feels right.
