  1. You should give the multiplayer a shot. I still hate the supers but it's fun otherwise.
  2. Anyone else here playing the beta? I've been playing it for the past two days and I haven't really made my mind on it. I'm primarily focused on how the multiplayer plays and it certainly plays differently than how the first Destiny played. Longer time between supers is definitely a welcomed change but I'm not sure about the cool down length on the grenades. Also, the map that they're using for control feels like crap to me. I like the fact that it seems they're focusing more on competitive arena style map design but this is a poor example of that.
  3. Playing the Destiny 2 beta on PC now and it's so much better. The performance is amazing, too.
  4. That's what I was going to do but I figured why the hell not. It's been really interesting so far. The gameplay really is vastly different than D1. It feels much more... slow paced and strategic. I find myself using more of my CS style of strategy than Halo but it doesn't feel too much like that. It feels different than anything else I've played yet familiar. I'm starting to like it the more I play. Edit: I don't want to make it sound like this is a lot like CS because it's not. It's just that it brings out the same defensive/methodical mindset that I have while playing that game.
  5. That always happens with me. It doesn't matter what game it is; definitely Halo. Best example was Halo 4. First thing I did in the multiplayer was getting an overkill/exterm. VERY first thing. Never got one after that.
  6. and that's what I thought. Edit: Wait, no; that's not true. This is a quote from the article So, the big question now is "What does 'current games' mean?"
  7. Ouch, not even that much time with it without issues. Sorry to hear that.
  8. Uuuuuuugh... That is ridiculous. Hurts my head when people can't follow story lines and try to argue about it. So, the big question right now is how Cersei is going to die? I'm throwing my hat in with the most popular theory.
  9. I have a theory that R+L=J. We'll just have to wait and see if it's true. but seriously, I love the series. I've listened to the audio books, and I've watched the most recent seasons of the show. Interested to see what they do in the coming seasons differently than the books.
  10. Well, I got rear ended by someone during traffic, which caused me to get squished into the car in front of me, making them hit another car. Betsy (my Mustang) is totaled and I was really not ready to let her go. I'm just now coming out of shock over the whole thing. All I know is that I'm sore all over and I'm not looking forward to dealing with all of this. I'm just glad I'm not more seriously injured.
  11. Okay, so, there's one possibility other than what I've said that could be profitable but damn risky. Essentially, it would have to be a Steam box... not running Steam. They'd have their own fork of Linux, working in partnership with Valve to have access to the Steam library. You'd have access to the Steam marketplace but everything would be within their own user interface. If you want, you can go into a desktop mode. From there, you can do whatever the hell you'd normally like to do with a Linux machine. They'd have the name to make the marketing reach out to a large audience, if they make a truly solid UI it could get more people to switch over, and if they can work with developers to get proper controller support, it could be successful. Then, even if it is successful, it won't be THAT much of a success unless there's some piece of the ingredient I'm missing.
  12. Probably just going to be an emulation box in the vein of NES classic. If Atari actually releases a real modern console, it's going to flop. I guarantee that.
  13. I'm really late to the party on this but I've been listening to Ghost a lot after hearing them open for Iron Maiden in Nashville. I'm a huge Maiden fan and I'll be honest, I was disappointed that I didn't get to hear more of them even if it meant cutting into Maiden's set.
  14. I've always dreamed of this.
  15. Heh, I guess you can look at it from that perspective. I was looking at it as an application that's solely meant to add on to a game you already have installed rather than a marketplace. I definitely see your point, though.
  16. When is the "back then" you keep referring to? Keep in mind, I'm saying it was great until 2009. Also, there's really nothing other than joining someone's server directly through your friend's list that it can't do that Xfire could. As I said, Xfire was good back then but it failed to evolve with time. It was also constantly down or sluggish.
  17. Shouldn't Discord be at the top? Seems to be the most comparable application to Evolve. #nitpickyaf
  18. Welcome back! Happy birthday! I love you! *Rips off shirt and hugs you tight*
  19. Get a second monitor and you can have one that you can see at all times.
  20. Xfire was great until like... 2009. This was really never that great. It has some improvements to Xfire but nothing really groundbreaking. They were just introducing features that consoles had since PS3/360 era that no one gives a shit about anymore. Discord, on the other hand, plays off Slack's design which has been groundbreaking. It's everything you actually need in a very, VERY intuitive package. Evolve was an evolution to Xfire, but just no where near enough.
  21. What do you mean by Infinity maps? Like the map? Marathon Infinity? Maps that go on forever?
  22. Weather update: It's cooled down now and the floor is NOT lava.
  24. I've never had to use a phone case. All of my phones have been in pristine condition when they were retired; that is until I said that to someone after they told me I was an idiot for not buying a phone case. I have a Google Pixel now and, for whatever reason, it has been dropped several times. No major damage anywhere except for the bezel. A friend gave me his old case for his Pixel but it looks like it belongs to a 13 year old so I don't use it.
  25. I haven't received a beta key. I'm not too broken up over it, though. Remove classes and I'll be interested.
