    The Callisto Protocol (survival/horror)

    I went and replayed Dead Space 2008. 30 minutes in I had more fun than 2 hrs into Callisto. I'll probably pick it if they Winter Sale it.

    The Callisto Protocol (survival/horror)

    Refunded. I am indeed a bit sad, but 8-9 hours of linear gameplay could probably have been overlooked if they'd done something about the horrendous shader hitching. It was gorgeous and engrossing between the technical glitching, but it was so immersion breaking I didn't want to continue. I'll...

    The Callisto Protocol (survival/horror)

    Pre-ordered as soon as it was available. Dead Space 1/2 is a top 5 video game all time for me. Cannot. Fucking. Wait. May take the day off.

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands (Borderlands spinoff)

    Still having fun. Sitting around Chaos chamber in mid20's with a Stabby/Spell build. Moxsy's taser build, was lucky enough to get a good Queen's Cry.

    Destiny 2

    I was one of the lead monks / pullers from Naggy / Vox up until Dragons of Norrath, quit and went to WoW. We were the no 3 guild on Mith Marr and then moved to Drinal and were no. 2 until Cats in Hats imploded. I never did get my second primal 1hb cause CiH killed all 4 Warders and woke the...

    Plane of Time in EQ1 was 72 players. No voice. Just chat channels. The good ole days. That was something like 6-8 hours long.

    Destiny 2

    Just a note, if you guys really want to try and raid, and want to succeed you'll need to know these symbols on sight. It's literally the mechanic of the entire raid. It looks like a lot, but really it's not hard after you've done it a couple times.

    Destiny 2

    I'll be 53 in June ;) To extend the time in the 3rd encounter you need to kill the shielded Knights. The Knights always spawn in the same place, at the same time (after a pair of glyph-keepers are killed). The darkness relic guys (laser beam) just need to know that if people are doing glyph...

    Gaming in your 40s

    I'm mid 50's. Started playing on a friends Atari 2600 when I was a kid. Still love it. I think it's natural for the want to play to wax and wain. I'll play for a few months, or more, then take a break... rinse repeat.

    Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen ~ Challenging Epic Planar High Fantasy MMORPG

    I started playing EQ1 a couple months after it came out (Jul '99), and played it like a second job for... way too many years (pretty much until WoW came out in Nov 04). We were the no. 2-3 guild on the server, eventually taking over to no. 1. (No instancing, first come, first kill, everyone else...

    Destiny 2

    The raids and dungeons are the best parts of the game, in my opinion. I'm sure if you have questions, there are quite a few of us that have been playing a while who can help.

    Destiny 2

    Triple fusion build! Yeah, it's a decent weapon. I'm a HUGE fan of the SMG, and Pulse though. I love aggressive burst, I always have my Sacred Provenance on me, and RIP Blast Furnace. Did the raid 3x and got a shitload of weapons 3x SMG (2 great rolls) 4x Fusion (1 good roll) 5x Pulse. (1...

    Destiny 2

    Totally agree. I'm completely put off about the whole thing. None of the "enhanced" traits are a huge enough upgrade that make me want to delete any of my weapons. I'm still trying to complete the mission board weapon crafting step. I've gotten 1 deepsight weapon from Wellspring, and it wasn't...

    Shuro Chi is a great place to knock out those in a hurry. I think I did 7-8 of them last night in maybe 30-40 minutes while watching Netflix.

    Pretty sure dmg04 said the team is looking into the drop rates as it seems like everyone is having issues obtaining them. Some people have run dozens of times with very little or nothing to show. On a side note, but related, weapon crafting to me is hugely underwhelming. The upgraded reload...

    Hunters are not getting the shaft. (they've always been the chosen class!) All the big streamer hunter players are saying it's just a meta shift and they're going to be better than today. I was just listening to Datto and FalloutPlays (and Frosty) yesterday and the both specifically mentioned it.

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    So after stopping at the store and fondling a Pixel 6 Pro and Samsung S21 Ultra, I went with the Pixel 6 Pro. Went to a franchised store and they stlil gave me $700 trade in for a Note 9 with a broke ass screen. $7 / mo I can live with for a new phone.

    Will you upgrade to the S22 ultra?

    Have a cracked screen Note 9 that's battery lasts about 1/2-2/3 of a day. Considering Pixel 6 Pro and the S22 Ultra. Leaning Pixel at the moment.

    God of War (Confirmed) - Official Thread

    I apparently got to the Muspelheim too early. Just hit level 6, with swapping gear still lvl 5, and took forever to do that "kill 20 enemies without getting hit" and made it to my first Valkyrie. Damn that's a hard fight. Took the wind out of the sales for me, but my kid (who just 100% the game)...

    Which 500gb NVME M2 SSD would you recommend?

    Stay with Samsung, or in lieu of that, Crucial. Don't buy a Sabrent. It died 37 days after installation in a low use (D: drive, for games, and download folder) situation. Was on sale, cheaper than the Samsung... sigh. Didn't really lose anything but time, but there it is. Refunded and...

    They gotta clear out that old unsold and antiquated shit no one wants to buy. Anyone want to buy a EVGA Bronze 850 psu? :| A thoroughly mediocre 27" 1440p monitor? A mid-grade "gaming" keyboard and mouse? No one does, unless they stick with a Ultra 3080 then they go like hot cakes.

    That queue was open only for about 90 minutes. Lee from the EVGA forums said Elite Members weren't notified because it's kind of a test case of their new "Queue 3.0" system. They also had a 'web mishap' where another card (XC3?) was available for 'notification' by accident a day or two again...

    Muspelheim made me rage quit. I know I'm 'older' and my reflexes aren't the best anymore but fuck that "Kill 20 enemies without getting hit AT ALL" fight. Best run was got down to 6 left and those guys that AE explode on death just clipped me. I'm too old for this shit.

    100% spot on with The Division clone thing though, wow. I'll play it for sure. TD1/2 some of my favorite games, ever. Still play TD1 Survival and some Underground now and then. EDIT: Was just watching one of the other gameplay YT vids and the guy walks up to a soda machine and bangs his fist...

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    Yeah, I had that problem. Right click to 'ready' your bow, then hit reload to add another arrow. The game doesn't explain it well (or maybe I'm just retarded). Yeah, once you start stacking Damage and Tear, you can really rip through the tougher mechs. First shot I'd usually just shoot off...

    Just finished it. Loved the story (I can be a bit of a lore whore now and then) and overall I thought it was well done. The shielded armor, depending on what difficulty you play at, can really alter the entire game. Not sure if that's good or bad. I played on PC with m&kb and thought it was...

    There's a Gally ornament in the dungeon, too. Collect all the lore pieces. Pretty easy to get to, but damn if some of them aren't very well hidden. I marvel at the people that are able to find all of them on their own to make these guides.

    DSC is a great experience. The mechanics aren't too complicated, and by the 2nd-3rd time through you'll have it figured out. It's closer to Scourge of the Past (easy / fun) in terms of difficulty rather than Crown of Sorrows (challenging mechanics) If you guys are looking for an active clan /...
