    Destiny 2: Black Armoury 4 Dec, Scourge of the Past 7 Dec

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Destiny 2: Black Armoury 4 Dec, Scourge of the Past 7 Dec

    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.

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

    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.

    Using Crimson helped me a bunch too - aka, I Can't Believe It's Not a Pulse Rifle.

    Hey, Bungie figured out how to fix that Weekly Challenge bug! Thanks, Bungie. Thungie.
  17. lewismistreated

    Destiny 2: Black Armoury 4 Dec, Scourge of the Past 7 Dec

    No, it's dropping at a lower light level. At least the hand cannon I got did. All good stuff. I don't fully understand the Prime engram exploit myself - frankly, the idea of running Lost Sectors for hours at a time seems like the opposite of what I want to do in the game at this point. There'll be enough of that to do when Faction Rally comes back from the grave... Unfortunate about the Weekly Resets, but its two engrams I've lost. Pretty sure that's not going to make or break a raid run when I get in on it for the first time. I'll take my ill-gotten raid loot and we'll call this one a draw, Bungie.

    Having done this, I can safely say that there is really nothing that got spoiled. If anything, it's more like walking around the outside of the Dreaming City space as it currently is - at one point, you're just walking past the outside of the arena where the Blind Well is located. I definitely didn't see anything that looked even remotely Raid-like. Hell, you barely see anything that resembles a finished texture. I remain firmly of the belief that this game really has not right to even exist in a sane world. It's so big and messy and tries to do so many different things that any reasonable developer wouldn't touch with a barge pole, that there's bound to be a few cracks in the walls here and there. And I'm fine with that, for the most part. There was an interview with Luke Smith around the time D2 was first coming out over a year ago, where the question was basically - "Why are you doing this? You're making something that will never be able to satisfy the rabid appetite of the audience you're going for. So why bother?". And every expansion just seems to reinforce that. But I for one am glad they keep trying.

    It might be a case that they're genuinely not sure what will happen until the Tuesday reset rolls around? Just a guess. I did the Gambit and Daily story stuff already and got hosed, so I'm gonna leave the Crucible one until Tuesday and hope for the best. Ironically that means I can't make any more progress on any of the exotic quests I currently have, as they all involve... Playing crucible. Ah well. Spider-Man it is. Oh, and whoever came up with a quest step of getting 7000 or so hand cannon kills in stuffing Competitive Crucible mode can go suck an egg.

    Guide out there right now on how to glitch into what looks like a new part of the Dreaming City, and unlocking a chest for raid loot. Some good old fashioned out of bounds jumping around with a sword shenanigans. My attempt got me the raid hand cannon with Zen Moment and Rampage. Which is nice. A cool armor mod too - breaking a Taken shield refreshes grenade ability. I'm going to leave my Titan idling in the area for a while if anyone else wants to be filthy and spawn on me to save you the jumps. Just shoot me a PSN message.

    Weird Blind Well glitch found. Destiny 2 thinks the explosions caused by Telesto shots are enemies being killed, and will progress the event as such. More of a time-saver than anything, especially on Tiers I and II, but will probably get patched soon.

    I guess my only other issue with the Arc class is the whole 'slide over ammo' thing to activate its top perk. I think anything that changes how you fundamentally move around the world is a big ask, and I sure as hell wont remember to run and slide over every piece of ammo that's lying around. Got an energy bow now too. With Rampage and Archer's Aim (or something like that - decreases draw time after a crit). Guys this game is pretty good.

    Got my second subclass unlocked! Spoilered if for some reason you don't want to know how: Went for the Sentinel, 'cause those barrier/healing abilities seem like they'll be real good in Raids. Also because the Arc human missile thing looks very silly.

    Wait, so power matters against other players, but it doesn't matter against the AI in the same match?

    Random thoughts: - In trying to get hold of the complete Season 4 Crucible armor set, I dunked all my tokens into Shaxx. Didn't get the MARK, which is all i NEEDED, but the horned git did give me at least 3 Better Devils', complete with all the new rolls. Still looking for the Best Devils, but if anyone wants to get hold of a decent 500 hand cannon, that seems to be a good way of going about it. - Stumbling into the Blind Well is awesome. Proper "what the hell is this and what do i do screw it I'll just start shooting things" Destiny moment. - Gambit's great, but loadout matters so much. I went in with whatever blues/highest LL items I had on me at the time, but just wasn't doing anything worthwhle compared to when I had Sleeper Simulant on me. Can anyone confirm that light level matters in Gambit? I'm seeing mixed things. - Still so, so much fresh meat in PS4 crucible. Love it. I'd love to see some breakdown of the player data after it went on PS+. Used to be you'd generally only see people at the highest light level there is - now, I'm seeing a lot more people who seem to have settled on 20/30 as their level cap.
