@  TheRealJoshLem : (31 July 2014 - 04:45 PM) Holmboy, I would love to try out MP after I finish the story.
@  Holmboy : (31 July 2014 - 11:45 AM) ...And the Red Sox fire sale continues. Remind me not to update my MLB 14 roster...like ever. Well, time to start trying out some different teams/ballparks.
@  Holmboy : (31 July 2014 - 11:29 AM) The Last of Us Remastered on PS4 is awesome, the upgraded graphics and controls really help an already stellar title. Let me know if anyone has it and wants to try out the Multiplayer!
@  Andrew6679 : (31 July 2014 - 09:51 AM) Awesome. Can't wait to play with everyone.
@  Dbl Incertion : (31 July 2014 - 07:49 AM) another interesting viewpoint on EA access http://www.forbes.co...scription-plan/
@  DBMgamer : (30 July 2014 - 11:15 PM) hey Andrew we have a Destiny clan registered on Bungie.net, may help in hooking up with other clan members like we did in battlefield:  http://www.bungie.ne...n/Detail/123389
@  Andrew6679 : (30 July 2014 - 10:42 PM) If you guys ever need a player in Destiny HMU. PSN (PS4) is deaduhcamper
@  Dbl Incertion : (30 July 2014 - 09:46 PM) http://m.ign.com/art...nning-ign-first
@  Dbl Incertion : (30 July 2014 - 09:45 PM) The only bummer about his raid stuff. We have 4 or 5 friends that play. There's no LFG and it's friends only and you can only chat to people in fireteam.... Seems super constrictive for mmo.
@  dukebdfan980 : (30 July 2014 - 06:11 PM) Bar Exam is over . . . YAY!!!  Also PS Now Beta starts tomorrow.  Posted a video with details
@  DBMgamer : (30 July 2014 - 04:40 PM) So the big teamwork news is Destiny's Raid (the Vault of Glass) really needs a fireteam of 6!  I see BattleStrats rolling in an Breaking that Glass, lol
@  Michrulejj : (30 July 2014 - 02:48 PM) @DukebdFan980 Good luck on your bar exam and future in Law!  A Law school grad and a future PharmD Grad coming from Battlestrats... Not bad Haha
@  Chilli2627 : (30 July 2014 - 02:23 PM) this one too http://www.dorkly.co...-thing-was-born
@  Chilli2627 : (30 July 2014 - 02:11 PM) another funny http://joyreactor.com/post/1033420
@  Dbl Incertion : (30 July 2014 - 12:33 PM) I really don't see EA's rental service being bad. I already pay a ton to game fly. So another 2.50 for unlimited us is fine - As long as its not just lame excuse to put on old games and they don't keep their new titles blocked for a year or two.
@  Holmboy : (30 July 2014 - 08:14 AM) EA Access announced for Xbox One, Nintendo posts another big loss and The Last of Us Remastered is awesome (Duh). All that and more on VGN! - http://videogamesandnews.com
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:46 PM) And I didn't see it's already up on vgn so..... Yep
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:40 PM) Oh and of course it's all digital and I assume will include no dlc or things like that but that's speculation
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:39 PM) Yep basically a EA ONLY gamefly with discounts and early access perks. Comes out to $2.50 month if you buy a whole year. Better then my $20 mo for gamefly except I get ALL games all consoles with gamefly obviously not just ea ges
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:33 PM) Ohhhhh..... Seems like it's a ea rental game service? $30 a year or something?
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:32 PM) Ea access members get to play ea games 5 days earlier. (Digital only) get a 10% discount and some other things. Still looking into it as was just out into beta.
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 09:30 PM) Ea access hub is interesting
@  Andrew6679 : (29 July 2014 - 09:02 PM) @Dbl I wanna punch those fags so badly
@  dukebdfan980 : (29 July 2014 - 08:29 PM) thanks for the support guys, day 2 is tomorrow.  Also if you want a good laugh check out @ExamSoft on twitter.  It is the company that makes the bar exam software.  They are having significant problems and thousands of tired, angry,stressed law students across the country can't upload their exams and they are taking it out on examsoft's twitter account and its hilarious
@  DBMgamer : (29 July 2014 - 04:37 PM) Good Luck @DukebdFan980!!  and Josh I also plan on grabbing a copy of TLOU since I didn't take a break to play it
@  Dbl Incertion : (29 July 2014 - 11:29 AM) these punks have the kind of face that screams punch me repeatedly http://finance.yahoo...-155539027.html
@  Andrew6679 : (29 July 2014 - 10:04 AM) I'm getting The Last of Us! I skipped on PS3 because i didn't have a job, but now i'm so excited to play it!
@  Holmboy : (29 July 2014 - 06:53 AM) I'll be getting it today hopefully, already pre-ordered for the bonus stuff. Don't forget GameStop is offering a $25 trade-in for The Last of Us on PS3 if you upgrade to PS4.
@  Chilli2627 : (29 July 2014 - 06:39 AM) I'll get it eventually. Loved it on PS3, excited to see it on PS4. Awesome story, and the multi player deserves a play too!!
@  TheRealJoshLem : (29 July 2014 - 06:32 AM) I'm picking up The Last Of Us Remastered today since I never played it for PS3. Who else is picking it up?
@  TheRealJoshLem : (29 July 2014 - 06:31 AM) @dukebdfan980 I know all that hard work will pay off, good luck man.
@  Holmboy : (29 July 2014 - 06:15 AM) This sounds like it may be a big bag problem, lol! - https://www.youtube....h?v=Yb2y68vc81s
@  Holmboy : (29 July 2014 - 05:50 AM) Glad I didn't spoil too much for myself with the Destiny Beta, managed to get myself addicted to Guacamelee! over the weekend unexpectedly.
@  Holmboy : (29 July 2014 - 05:45 AM) @twentyONE - Dude, I was wicked scared. The weathah up here kid...Actually missed everything, I was at work but tornadoes are popping up more and more in New England.
@  dukebdfan980 : (29 July 2014 - 05:07 AM) Taking the North Carolina Bar exam today and tomorrow, wish me luck.  Prayers are greatly appreciated
@  twentyONE : (28 July 2014 - 04:38 PM) Holmboy, you had a Tornado up there?!!  "Dat's faahhkn crazy, kid!" (Marky Mark voice)
@  DBMgamer : (28 July 2014 - 03:42 PM) When Activisions marketing Onslaught of Destiny Begins I expect to see a Destiny Premium service that has all DLC's, sort of how Franchise titles work these days. The full game rumor is 32 story missions (complete with what wasn't shown in Beta so sh*t makes sense), 23 strike missions (difficulty settings and Vanguard versions), 11 pvp maps (Playstation), the one Raid map (the Vault of Glass on Venus), and 5 explorable areas (we have been on 2).  This was parsed from a Bungie Database so this is the Minimum that the game has.
@  Dbl Incertion : (28 July 2014 - 01:10 PM) Just gonna put faith in Bungie. I know they can pull off a decent game and great story. But all their marketing seems to indicate "on going story" i/e we will keep putting out new DLC content hopefully that doesn't mean the $60 vanilla game is a tiny piece of their DLC MMO puzzle.
@  Dbl Incertion : (28 July 2014 - 01:08 PM) Frankly they said something like the beta is 10% of the game and each planet has 1 general area to explore of which weve seen earth and the moon. (More to come with DLC) Im hoping im not lv 20 maxed out and bored 1 week in. Was Suprised we dont fly our own ships around in space and land ala Mass effect style - just buy a ship for cosmetics click a and watch it zoom around.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (28 July 2014 - 11:18 AM) To be clear, I am not criticizing your point of view, merely stating that you are not alone in your thought. In your shoes I would also hope I were wrong considering how much this game has been hyped. I remember how much BF4 was hyped and how many egregious errors EA made from the outset. I hope Bungie is a little smarter.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (28 July 2014 - 11:17 AM) @twentyONE, I see a lot of people online echoing your sentiments and still others saying worse things. I for one am super excited about the game because of the cooperative element of it. I'm still not super sold on the Crucible, but with more experience I think I'll come to enjoy it.
@  Dbl Incertion : (27 July 2014 - 04:22 PM) Sadly one I've been trying not to feel that way. But after a weekend of pvp and maxing all the classes all of my crew feels hmmmm meh about it. Still buying but not ground breaking experience just get. The story seems great maybe halo worthy
@  twentyONE : (27 July 2014 - 12:49 PM) Having said that, I've tempered expectations greatly. Enjoyed the beta but I can't help but feel very underwhelmed and disappointed overall. I'm very 'meh' on the weapons and maps in PvP.  Pretty 'meh' on the PvE as well and feel its going to be very repetitive/tedious. Hopefully I will feel different at launch ...
@  twentyONE : (26 July 2014 - 06:06 PM) That moon mission is freakin SWEET!
@  Dbl Incertion : (26 July 2014 - 05:19 PM) No iron banner team gameplay for you!
@  Dbl Incertion : (26 July 2014 - 05:19 PM) Not surprisingly Xbox one friends list is crashed immediately following 5pm eastern 2pm pacific I wonder what happened at that time.......
@  TheBMT : (26 July 2014 - 01:07 PM) Im probably getting the game as well.  Tho just for the 360
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 10:23 PM) Also - f**king china https://gma.yahoo.co...topstories.html
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 10:23 PM) BMT I'm on it a lot if you want to hang - certainly getting the game too
@  TheBMT : (25 July 2014 - 09:19 PM) Sooooo Ive been loving Destiny, even tho most of my experience has been solo.  People on the same journey as I am on missions, just is neat lol.
@  DBMgamer : (25 July 2014 - 05:30 PM) Tomorow Bungie is going to open up the Moon for 2 hours and here is the Beta test banner that you get to carry into the full game: https://lh6.googleus...apture_Beta.JPG  Just get some rounds in after 2pm PDT and its yours!
@  twentyONE : (25 July 2014 - 11:10 AM) Crucible + Music Unlimited filthy Trance custom playlist = WIN!
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 July 2014 - 07:12 AM) Yea, I've turned my KD up to about 2.0 switching to auto rifle and fusion rifle sight than. I just avoid long lines and do ok.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (24 July 2014 - 08:24 PM) Something I have learned: it is very useful to keep at least one weapon handy for ranged combat. Make sure you have at least one of the following: scout rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher. I love running my Titan with auto rifle, shotgun and machine gun, but against foes I want to keep at a distance I find myself wanting.
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 05:39 PM) fyi, Destiny's Beta is open to download, no codes required, this will be Bungies real stress test
@  Holmboy : (24 July 2014 - 01:32 PM) Anyone with an Android phone, tablet or gaming device like Ouya or SHIELD needs to pick this up. Classic! - http://ow.ly/zykHr
@  Holmboy : (24 July 2014 - 01:14 PM) The Iron Banner for Destiny returns again Friday and Saturday with some earlier battles added for Europeans: http://www.bungie.ne.../News?aid=11959
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 08:15 AM) and sadly I would like to point out that Destiny is in Beta and has Clan Pages *cough cough BF4*
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 08:02 AM) once the full game launches it seems as a clan you can earn rewards (don't know what that would be) and our BS logo should pop up
@  DBMgamer : (24 July 2014 - 07:59 AM) @Josh, there is a Enable Clan button for each platform but no option to pull group members into clan members so you should have an option to get in the BS clan now for both Playstion members and Xbox members
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 July 2014 - 07:17 AM) Gonna research further saw some things about impact and improving that stat that gives advantage over range
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 July 2014 - 07:16 AM) Nah these are snipes or shottys they are like pulse rifles and auto rifles one burst dead. While I spam and connect with half my shots.
@  Chilli2627 : (24 July 2014 - 06:51 AM) *unless it's Iron Banner
@  Chilli2627 : (24 July 2014 - 06:51 AM) Snipers will drop you in 1 shot, so will shotguns if you let them get close enough.  It doesn't matter what weapon or gear people use in the crucible,  All damage there is the same, there is no advantage for anyone
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 09:10 PM) Dunno what I'm missing were all lv 8 with pretty decent weapons and gear but get like one shot by things in crucible left and right
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 07:10 PM) Ashame only 3 friends can play I have 5 of us that all play Biffle together
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 05:48 PM) I think we can creat alliances with our clans might do that
@  TheRealJoshLem : (23 July 2014 - 05:28 PM) To be clear, in Destiny groups and clans seem to be 2 different things. I think we have a group for Battlestrats, but no clan, unless one has been created in the past few days.
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 05:00 PM) well Dbl we have a Destiny BattleStrats Clan if you like
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 04:57 PM) Made an Xbox One clan for destiny named Spider Monkeys for some friends and I if anyone else wants to join up that'd be cool
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 04:42 PM) Since the group focus should be to get the Xboxers caught up I put up 2 different location vids from the Alpha and yes nothing has moved, One will get you a Deactivated ghost (Hive Knight), the other gets you a random chest in his Lair (Ogre)
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 02:32 PM) :Crying:
@  dukebdfan980 : (23 July 2014 - 02:05 PM) Its not an accuracy issue, the lack of ammo becomes a problem when you are fighting a tough opponent like a fallen that takes a lot to go down but doesn't drop ammo as you go.  Even with 3 people fighting a fallen everybody is almost completely out of ammo by the time it goes down.
@  cbaker96 : (23 July 2014 - 01:56 PM) I will be on tonight hoping to level up my three people and do some exploring!
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 01:11 PM) And I am back, So I'll be up and running soon!
@  DBMgamer : (23 July 2014 - 01:10 PM) I hope to see our Xbox Brethren chime in on their thoughts on Destiny in this shoutbox
@  TheRealJoshLem : (23 July 2014 - 12:02 PM) Jeremy, I use the sniper rifle to engage a tough enemy such as a Captain or Wizard and do massive damage quickly before he can do too much damage. Your accuracy will improve with time and 14 bullets will be enough to be effective, especially if you aim for the head.
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 11:11 AM) the semi-auto sniper rifle is all i've used so far.  works great, but does run out of ammo a but quick.  however, it forces you to use all available resources, so i find it to be fun
@  Holmboy : (23 July 2014 - 10:59 AM) @baker - They're there just for show, they make your player nameplate look pretty. @duke -Haven't been using the Sniper Rifle in Destiny, but I get enough ammo for the Machine Gun.
@  dukebdfan980 : (23 July 2014 - 10:26 AM) Does anybody else feel like there needs to be a higher capacity to carry special ammo. 14 bullets for the sniper rifle isn't a lot against one of the fallen
@  cbaker96 : (23 July 2014 - 07:57 AM) Okay, what is the difference in emblems in Destiny for each class and what do they do?
@  Myelencephalous : (23 July 2014 - 06:58 AM) Destiny Beta was up and running as of late evening yesterday.  A small update file, and you're ready to rock and roll.
@  Dbl Incertion : (23 July 2014 - 06:55 AM) http://news.xbox.com...izon-2-car-list
@  dukebdfan980 : (22 July 2014 - 05:42 PM) the Beta is back up for us too PS4 guys
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 05:27 PM) Ohhhhh snap sticks finally the beta for destiny Xbox one is live there goes my week
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 03:02 PM) I am going to go out on a limb and say EA knows Destiny will OWN through the holidays and hardline would be refreshing next year vs. this year considering there is still 1 more DLC for BF4
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 02:59 PM) Battlefield: Hardline just got postponed to 2015: http://ow.ly/zsZf9
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 July 2014 - 02:59 PM) https://movies.yahoo...-130001942.html
@  Myelencephalous : (22 July 2014 - 10:49 AM) i thought everything looked really solid and smooth.  i'm no expert, but i wouldn't have been able to tell whether it was 30 or 60
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 10:24 AM) It'll be a lot of fun getting Destiny back tomorrow, but after playing the Alpha and now this I really just want the full game so I can explore new locations and get past Level 8 finally...
@  Holmboy : (22 July 2014 - 10:21 AM) Framerate dips are the worst so a consistant 30fps is ok with me, but they need to really look into going 60fps once the engine gets optimized for Destiny 2 possibly.
@  cbaker96 : (22 July 2014 - 10:20 AM) Im starting to shake...I need destiny back! I had no issues with the 30fps, I saw LevelCap was complaining about it...
@  TheRealJoshLem : (22 July 2014 - 07:11 AM) I see people are complaining about Destiny being only 30fps. Personally I think Destiny at 30fps plays much smoother than BF4 at 60fps. I just hope reviewers don't use 30fps as an excuse to give the game a lesser rating.
@  dukebdfan980 : (22 July 2014 - 06:50 AM) Day 2 without Destiny, how you guys holding up?
