    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    I did a few of the Season 1 events, but never really even finished the world bosses like the marionette and fall of lion's arch (failed a couple of times). Looking back, I should have been more involved but once I missed out on one or two things, I felt like I was just out of the loop so I...

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    I really don't like the fact that they make you pay for Season 2 if you didn't login. One side of the camp argues that all you had to do was take 15 seconds to login (well, probably more from downloading updates etc.) and get it for free when it was available; but most people honestly had no...

    You sound ridiculous. Do you even have numbers or are you just ranting for the sake of hearing your own voice? "My pvp rating won't be accurate without millions of other players participating in the thing that I want to do". Christ man.

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    You know what? I don't even pay attention to how many active players there are. Why should that even matter? The zones are populated, you're never alone for events, and you can find other players to do things. I played GW1 on and off for years without ever knowing how many active players there...

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    They've substantially changed big boss events, particularly in the living world season 1. An example is the big marionette where people get teleported as groups of 5 from each lane and they do a mini encounter etc. I feel like it's pretty tiring debating with people who only played for the first...

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    I must be playing a completely different game than some people. I have never ever felt like I was forced to buy anything from the gem shop. However, my biggest gripe is actually living world season 2. I didn't log in for the past year or so, so I ended up buying the episodes with gems. Other...

    Broken Touchpad?

    Straight to the point: My touchpad is going bonkers at times. Laptop is a Asus G46VW. The rest of the laptop is fine... so I don't want to replace the whole thing simply because of the touchpad. Anything I can do or will I have to just send it in?

    Super Smash Wii U

    Yea, but I can't reliably time the direction + attack 100% of the time. It's much easier to use the smash stick. Or maybe I need to work on timing direction + attack. Aside from that, I'm not sure what the downsides of the wii mote + nunchuck are. I always assumed it was because of the smash...

    Super Smash Wii U

    I played non stop over the weekend with a friend and my gf. Stuck with a bunch of Wii motes and nunchucks that my gf (bless her heart...) bought with her credit card points... I find that they're serviceable with the only real downside being the lack of a smash stick. I can map the D-Pad...

    Steam on 2 HDDs

    I already did that. Seems most folks didn't actually read my original post... but I'll repeat it. Functionally, the only problem is the fact that Steam doesn't think most of my games are downloaded/installed when they are. Which isn't a problem if I want to play a specific game since I...

    Steam on 2 HDDs

    I'd have to do this hundreds of times though for games I've installed in the past right? I wanted to avoid that with something that just does the same by crawling a directory... but I guess if that's what it takes.

    Steam on 2 HDDs

    Hi Guys, I've kind of just lived with this for a while - but wanted to know if there was a better way to handle it. I bought a SSD and installed windows steam etc. on it. I didn't want to put all of my steam games on there (despite it being 1 TB, it would have quickly run out of space). I also...

    As mentioned, the res is a super. The weekly strike gives you 9 coins the first time always (the level 28 one). Do it on 3 chars and you'll be swimming in coins. Xur will never be an issue.

    I did it solo by staying at the top. My legendary void MG made short work of the minotaur - only took like 10-12 bullets per minotaur and my MG holds 100/200 (300 total). Additionally, the minotaur gave me special ammo for my void sniper so it worked out well. I duo'd with my brother on our...

    Honestly, between a full time job and other responsibilities, I kind of feel like it's moving a bit fast. Level cap is already getting raised and there's more shit to repeat everyday/week.

    You should probably just do bounties, daily story, weekly heroic, nightfall/VoG once you get to 26/27... so yea, PS+. Loot caves are so ... not worth it. I have two characters at 28 and I've never done a loot cave beyond 5 minutes of checking out the first one.

    Thorn is extremely disappointing; it was also my first exotic bounty. I was so excited and so let down. Low impact, low bullets per mag, long reload time. Bad Juju is even worse. The weapon model itself clutters the screen so much, it's a distraction. Got pocket infinity at the same time as Ice...

    Divinity: Original Sin

    Yea, I didn't realize it either. Funny thing is, I had teleported into that room multiple times. Just never picked the thing up. I always used the teleporting skills to get one character across obstacles etc. After about 40ish hours, I decided to just go ahead and finish the main quest. Will...

    Desktop wireless adapter?

    For what it's worth, I set up my wireless hub last night (some standard $50 netgear one...). I'm getting the full 60 mbps from my ISP (vs. 3 mbps I was getting earlier) from a router that's on the other side of the house. It was less of an issue at my apartment because the distance wasn't quite...

    Desktop wireless adapter?

    I've gone through 4 or more PCI-E wireless adapters for my rig(s) at this point. They've all been pretty bad in general both in quality and strength. One of them was particularly bad to the point where it started crashing Windows. I've also dabbled with USB adapters but they're even worse...

    Divinity: Original Sin

    It refunded everything when I tried it (quick saved before) - and you unlearn things that you had already learned because you don't have enough skill to retain it. So yes, you can dump all your points into a completely different class. Relearning stuff probably isn't a big deal since so many...

    Divinity: Original Sin

    Not freezes, but it has crashed on me a few times in the 30ish hours I've put in. Been playing for a bit, but there are a few nagging questions. Anyone know what the actual motivation is for using a xbow? 6 AP vs. 4 AP for a bow seems a bit odd. Also, once you get Tenebrium...

    239k is low, but there is no normal without a frame of reference (how long have you been at 70? What difficulty? Paragon level?)... 1 mill profile dps puts you in the top 1500 Crusaders... 239k is just easily upgradable with a few tweaks and/or crafted rares/rerolls.

    No, it's a result of your gear not being caught up to your level. Relatively speaking, you're getting progressively weaker as you level if your gear can't keep up accordingly. It's not a big deal. Just keep bumping down difficulty as you see fit until you hit 70. That's when monsters stop...

    He's just referring to putting an exp gem in the helm. It's not specific to Cain's set or anything. You can also socket a red gem in weapons to give disproportionately good weapon damage at lower levels. Level 70 gear with minus level requirement is good too since you're in the 40's. They can go...
