#2684840 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 15 August 2016 - 03:49 PM

Back to Destiny for The Taken King expansion. They made this game so much better on so many levels with this update, i'm hooked right back in.

The Taken King update was terrific, no doubt. However, the April Update (known lovingly as the Taken Spring) is where the game REALLY hit it's mark.  (I've played Destiny pretty much exclusively since launch/vanilla, so I can easily say the game is at a point where it's the best it's ever been).

The April Update eliminated the "Double RNG" for gear drops in the raid, and other end-game content.  Previously, you had the first RNG, which was even getting a drop at all.  Then the 2nd RNG kicked in, which was what light level the gear dropped at.  You could get gear drops that were well below your light level, which caused many players to stop grinding to get to the light cap.

 

NOW, any piece of legendary equipment dropped in the raid/end-game is guaranteed to be no lower than your current light level, and can max out at something like 5 points above.  So there's constant progress towards your goals.

 

I really wish you were on PS4.  I'd be glad to run any of the raids or Iron Banner with you.

 

Oh, and Rise of Iron is out in a little over a month.  Things will only get better then.  New missions, raid, strikes, gear, and (what I'm MOST excited for) the ability to choose what type of reward you get from faction level up packages!  Woohoo!

Mommy and baby are both doing well!

Saw this and thought the community might be interested in this.  Since it's one of the factors that contributed to me becoming a Red Wings fan, I thought it was best posted here.

#2677640 Bad News... Dave Strader diagnosed with cancer

Posted by Jedi on 14 June 2016 - 09:29 AM

In an industry that is rampant with homers (Olcyskcysztvcyk), idiots, and people only trying to make a name for themselves, Strader is one of the few that has risen above it.

 

Best wishes to him on a full and speedy recovery.




#2677376 Gordie Howe has passed away. 1928-2016.

Written in Sports Illustrated's March 16th 1964 issue...

 

"The full roster of Howe's hockey injuries includes damaged knee cartilages, broken ribs, a broken wrist, several broken toes, a shoulder dislocation, an assortment of scalp wounds and a painful ankle wound. In a collision on the ice on March 28, 1950 (he was 21), he suffered a severe skull fracture, and he was in an operating room three hours while surgeons worked to halt a hemorrhage in his brain. Gordie dismisses them all with a casual, "Aw, it's not all that bad." And perhaps it isn't, for injuries are a part of hockey. And hockey is the major part of the phenomenon called Gordie Howe."

"The Gordie Howe Arena, presented by Little Caesars"

Best way I've seen so far to honor Gordie and to keep the corporate sponsorship.

The Red Wings twitter feed has been retweeting messages from several other NHL clubs and their words of condolences.  Nice to see teams that are normally bitter rivals standing together.  Rocky Wirtz of the Chicago Blackhawks had some especially nice words to say...
 

The Chicago Blackhawks offer their heartfelt condolences to Gordie’s family and the entire Detroit Red Wings organization.  There is no greater rivalry in hockey than the one between the Red Wings and the Blackhawks, and Gordie was a large part of that.  There’s a reason why he is called 'Mr. Hockey,' because of what he did for the game, and we stand with the entire sports world, in mourning his loss.

 

 

Sad day.  Red Wings fans, and hockey fans the world over, will miss you sir.




#2677160 The Wings request permission to interview Todd Richards

Posted by Jedi on 08 June 2016 - 03:28 PM

I thought the trap prevented scoring chances, and odd man rushes by the opposition...Maybe I had a few too many drams of bourbon/scotch this past season cause I could've swore the Wings look fairly inept on many nights in their own end of the ice.

 

You had to have.  We were clearly inept on many nights on both ends of the ice.

A 2nd new Wings fan in my family is on the way, though this time around we'll be looking for pink Wings gear!

She's "officially" due on July 31st, though she'll actually be here a week or two before that.  Parker (my First Wings fan) is ridiculously excited to be an older brother.
