#2550796 In an odd way.....

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 21 November 2014 - 03:01 PM

 If you don't like a thread, DON'T POST IN IT.


1) By posting you're only keeping a thread you don't like more active.  If few people respond, the thread quickly gets bumped down the page by more active threads and the problem takes care of itself.  


2) By posting about whether something is threadworthy or not, you derail the conversation and reduce any chance the thread had at actually becoming a meaningful conversation. It becomes self-fulfilling.  "I think this thread is stupid so I made a post saying as much.  Now we're talking about how stupid the thread is.  After multiple posts about how stupid this thread is, the thread indeed has become stupid."



I've cleaned up the thread.  Please don't drive it into the ditch again.

#2548785 What Are You Playing?

Posted by Jedi on 14 November 2014 - 12:13 AM

I have an awesome wife.


She knew I was pretty pissed and probably a little mopey since my PS4 is off for repairs (shipped back home today, will know Saturday if it works or not when it arrives).  So she did a LOT of searching and scrolling online, and found what she was getting me for Christmas.  And then, when she picked it up, she went ahead and gave it to me.


To match my Glacier White BrickstationPlaystation 4, she got me the Cirrus White Xbox One bundle with Sunset Overdrive!


So, I've been playing S.O. for the past couple of days.  It's an... interesting game.  Not necessarily my style, but it is fun to play.  Fully expect it to take a back seat to Destiny when/if my PS4 ever gets up and running again, but I'll get around to it again, for sure.

In honor of Veterans Day, are there any well known NHLers who were also vets?

And a big thank you to any LGW vets and lurkers!

#2545666 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by Jedi on 31 October 2014 - 06:19 AM

OK, that was fast. Shipped off my PS4 on Friday afternoon, one week ago today. Because I live in a small outside-the-metroplex suburb of Dallas, FedEx didn't pick it up until Monday, arriving at Sony's door on Wednesday...

It shipped back to me yesterday. Sony didn't even have my console for 24 hours. And, FedEx is now showing that it is slated for delivery today. If so, that's a turnaround of exactly one week. That's damn impressive.

While they're there, is a way the Wings can steal Wayne Simmonds?


I've wanted him on the Wings since I watched him with LA.

#2539738 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 10 October 2014 - 02:42 PM

This is my take on it. If you are going into it expecting it to be a true console MMO like World of Warcraft, you will likely be disappointed because the content just isn't there.


If you approach it like a shooter with RPG elements that has co-op play and competitive multiplayer, I feel like it shines in both areas of the game. to get certain gear and equipment, you must participate in online modes like Strike and Cruicible, which is like mini-raids and online deathmatch/objective based gameplay. Each mode gives you unique rewards and access to things that only those modes offer. 


There is a lot to do, a long way to progress up to level 30 if you want to dedicate the time, and it really shines cooperatively. I wouldn't be enjoying it if I was attempting to go at it alone, I don't think Strikes or Raids are really possible to finish single player as they are extremely difficult as it is doing them cooperatively, but you at least have the team mates to revive you and continue the battle. 


I would say go for it, because I like it a lot personally, and I think a lot of the negative reviews from people come from those who thought it was going to be a lot more and larger than what it turned out to be. 


I can do the Weekly Strikes at 28 and Nightfall solo, but the Vault of Glass raid is impossible solo AFAIK. The lowest you *could* do the VoG is with two people, but technically they needed a 3rd person to join mid raid in order to advance them through a certain part that required 3 people to unblock the next area. But even then, those two people that posted their achievement on reddit were very good and coordinated.


My take on the game so far is it started out fun, but I'm now at the point of having nothing left to do due to lack of content. All I do is complete the weekly strikes and nightfall on my characters and then that's it until the next reset.


There were 6 of us that were going to do the raid but we're either playing CSGO or they just haven't been on, so I got that to look forward to still whenever we decide to do it. I guess getting raid gear is the only way to reach light level 30 so I've been saving my ascendant shards for whenever I get those.
