    Destiny 2 - Sekiro's out on Friday

    Finished the Allegiance quest on my Warlock just now (sided with the Vanguard). The lore is pretty decent, and you learn a fair bit about the Drifter, finally. Other than the Allegiance quest and the nine (Xur's bounty) each weekend though, there's only really Gambit Prime and Reckoning this season. Hopefully the next season wont be like this, but then it does have a raid, so there's that at least. Shame it seems to be on the Leviathan again though. Hopefully we get to kill the fat robot frog for good this time.
  2. Hate to say it, but I've been tempted to trade in Anthem for this

    I've got enough to play without adding yet another game on top of that.

    On Tuesday Patch Hotfix 2.2.0.2 should be out, and with it powerful drops should become powerful again (and not just be +1 before hitting 690 power). Just play what you want until then I guess.

    Hmm, decided to give this a whirl tonight as I'm taking a break from Anthem for a bit. Dont like what they've done to powerful drops only being +1 over your current light right from the outset (650). Apparently only Prime engrams and a few other sparse sources give higher than that, right up to 695 ish. There's no real urgency to get to 700 this season, but this is definitely an artificial grind for the sake of stretching out content, and most of it is old content at that. Almost feels like your wasting your time doing 3 strikes for a grand total of +1 to your max power for example. This post seems spot on though, as I had the Chaperone reward on my Warlock, so picked it up, and it was +3, so seems accurate: Apparently the +1/+6 for the black armory weapon frame is for the first frame and then the second, so if thats correct, you should make sure your lowest power weapon slot is the second frame to be completed.

    The Whisper nerf is a bit overboard when the total ammo without reserves went from 20 to 9 in one patch. Should have been 15 to make it more bearable. Machine guns damage should have been left as it was, but I kind of agree with the ammo change as it was possible to carry a lot of it. The fact you have to play Gambit Prime is a bit shit though to be able to do any of the other content. All the allegiance quest stuff (and Thorn) is also stuff we've done to death - play more gambit, more strikes, more crucible. Where are the missions? The secrets? The Whisper quest was the most loved secret and yet there's been nothing like it since! Same with Shattered Throne. As it stands the Season of the Forge, while grindy as hell, had more reason to play than Drifter as it had a raid. In Drifter there doesnt seem to be any need to get to 700 power outside of maybe Iron Banner and tier 3 of Reckoning, and even with the latter I'm not sure it needs max power. I suspect the playerbase is/will be quite low this season, due in no small part to the lack of "new" content, a raid and the release of competition - Division 2 mainly, but also just other games (even single player ones). Bungie had to have known this though, as it was all over Reddit prior to Season of the Drifter's release.

    Surprised there's been no mention of the Allegiance quest, or the Thorn quest in here at all. Both went live today.
  8. I thought this was great, and all the 90's music was stuff I used to play in my car back in the 90's, so spot on. Also having the Streetfighter 2 arcade cabinet in there was brilliant.

    Glad Its not just me that thinks this season is a bit meh: I dont usually like Houndish's vids, but to be fair this ones pretty spot on.

    Anthem - Sekiro's out on Friday

    Its far more stable though, fair play. Not a single crash last night. And I dont think the loot got nerfed at all - ran Tyrant Mine once and got 6 (!) masterworks. Thats a record even for me! Also did some freeplay and got a Legendary from a chest (one I already had - Divine Vengeance, but it has +85% shields!), as well as some masterworks. Now you could say that I'm just a lucky cunt, and you'd be right, but getting 6 masterworks in one stronghold run, when I normally only get one extra drop on top of the guaranteed one most runs, tells me its not been nerfed at all, despite reddits cries to the contrary. Its all RNG, and people on reddit dont seem to understand that, which is odd considering the game is a looter shooter designed with rng, and a lot of the playerbase (especially on reddit) are people who played Destiny, The Division and many other rng based loot games. Anyway, what did get nerfed is getting masterwork embers it seems. I only got 2 the whole night as a drop, out of a chest. Not one crafting node gave me any masterwork embers. Definite nerf to crafting. Bioware/EA probably think people have way too many, and they were pretty easy to farm with an Elemental Rage gun equipped (gives 2 instead of 1 - possibly a bug? Dunno). Gotta get people to spend coin on embers now I suppose, as barely anyone is spending coin on cosmetics (seriously, the cosmetics shop is terrible).

    Anthem - Sekiro's out on Friday

    On the topic of the so called "loot nerf", I havent noticed any loot drop decrease, much to @Gorf King and Dips/Devdas' annoyance no doubt. Got a legendary component off a spider in Tyrant Mine earlier for instance, and a few universal masterwork components (well 2 anyway, and one of those was a duplicate of a component that appeared in my inventory post patch) drop during some legendary contracts. @Lyrical Donut, my Thunderbolt of Yvenia has the "33%" chance on it, but it was a drop pre-patch. My Amulet of Winter and Mark of Ruin on my Storm both have no percentage numbers though, so there is something definitely buggy going on with regards to percentages on items. Also, the Colossus Masterwork Ablative Shielding component still has the same amount of shields and armour it had pre-patch, despite the patch notes saying otherwise. I can see there being another patch to fix this patch sometime next week. Edit: something is definitely up with health, or damage in general from enemies. My normally "haha, that tickled" Colossus has been 2 shot twice now by a Legendary Ursix on gm1, whereas prior it took a few more hits for it to attempt to kill me - like maybe 4, but I just healed up with Best Defense before it could do the deed. Other people have noticed this increased damage as well, so I think there's definitely something up. Bear in mind that each Colossus masterwork component gives more than 10k health compared to the other javelins only giving 1/2k health.

    Hmm, patch has ruined my Storm build due to some components being swapped about. I no longer have a frost component, as its been replaced with a bugged fire one (ironically the only one I didnt have). It has no number next to the percentage, so probably applies no bonus damage (not that I use fire anyway), so it means I have to grind again to get the frost one I used to have. Apparently the fire and ice ones got swapped for some reason, and the percentages bugged on the ones currently in your inventory - supposedly new ones acquired post patch should be fine. Means I have to grind more lego contracts, which is a bit shit obviously.

    Nice one. Hope it doesnt break anything over the weekend though.

    The fact I made no comment after simply posting them should have told you enough surely Mike. I mean, yeah I have them all anyway, but have you ever seen me use either of the other 2 on my Hunter/Warlock? The answer to that should obviously be no, because they're shite. Well, Ophidians is "ok" I guess, but there are better options now. You wouldnt use either of them outside of PvP anyway.
