@  dukebdfan980 : (20 August 2014 - 08:28 AM) Same here Baker
@  cbaker96 : (20 August 2014 - 07:13 AM) Is it 9/9/14 yet?  I miss playing!
@  twentyONE : (19 August 2014 - 09:36 AM) I feel that this "season" will rival Fall 2011 for best game release period EVER...or at least in recent memory.  More pumped for Madden (& FIFA) than anytime I can remember. Trying to finish a number of games before I am consumed by the ridiculous amount of awesomeness these next months hold, spilling over into 1st qtr of '15!
@  Holmboy : (19 August 2014 - 07:53 AM) Well, the "fall" video game season is officially upon us. Very excited for Diablo III today and Madden next week. If you have PlayStation Plus you really need to check out Fez and Dragon's Crown for free this month, especially for Vita.
@  Holmboy : (19 August 2014 - 06:23 AM) Keep up the great work DBM, our man of Destiny lol!
@  cbaker96 : (18 August 2014 - 08:21 AM) Way to go DBM!
@  dukebdfan980 : (17 August 2014 - 07:10 PM) Positive thoughts are appreciated, but I won't hear anything sometime in September
@  DBMgamer : (17 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) hey Jeremy have you heard how you did from your exam yet? (thinking positive thoughts)
@  dukebdfan980 : (17 August 2014 - 02:33 PM) Congrats DBM
@  DBMgamer : (16 August 2014 - 08:01 PM) wow, um ok, my video on the Cabal made it to the Front page of DestinyNews.net   The incredible part is the number of subscriptions I have has grown by 25%.... in one day?!?!
@  Andrew6679 : (14 August 2014 - 06:58 PM) Thats where i got mine DBL. They've literally had that on there for 4 months now haha.
@  Dbl Incertion : (14 August 2014 - 12:44 PM) anyone wanting a PS4 for $359? Today only here you go http://deals.ebay.co...468611165814153

@  Myelencephalous : (14 August 2014 - 09:10 AM) twentyONE, if you're really into WTF movies, try out Bad Taste, directed by Peter Jackson (he produced the Lord of the Rings trilogy).  It is by far one of the worst movies ever made, but you can't stop watching it.  You can find it on YouTube if you can't come across a physical copy.
@  Dbl Incertion : (14 August 2014 - 07:04 AM) Don't think I've been upset about loosing someone in hollywood until Robbin WIlliams. Still quite morose at his suicide. And hey guy likes games too so https://movies.yahoo...-233204827.html
@  TheBMT : (13 August 2014 - 10:57 PM) I still gotta watch both.  Sci Fi channel has had some crazy ones.  My friend and I ponder if itd be good money to just pitch ideas for new Sci Fi specials.
@  DBMgamer : (13 August 2014 - 08:05 PM) I think the first one is on netflix right now, People told me its so over the top that I had to watch it
@  twentyONE : (13 August 2014 - 07:12 PM) I'm actually watching Sharknado 2...I can't stop laughing, WTF is this? Too bad I missed the first one.  Might be the most random collection of actors/actresses I've seen in awhile. It's so terrible but I have to watch!
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 06:33 PM) Ps Dbm the videos now show up when I open it on my phone. /highfives
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 06:31 PM) I made a clan called spider monkeys I'll ally it with battlestrats when I get a chance.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (13 August 2014 - 05:15 PM) Jimmy, you're in! To clarify, this clan is on PlayStation. I am not sure if a similar clan has been created for XBox or if the same clan exists for both platforms.

@  Myelencephalous : (13 August 2014 - 08:59 AM) Done, check your conversations icon
@  TheRealJoshLem : (13 August 2014 - 08:12 AM) If anyone on this site plans to buy Destiny when it hits shelves September 9, we have a Battlestrats clan on bungie.net; I do not see an option as administrator to invite a member to the clan, so anyone interested may need to apply in order to be accepted.
@  DBMgamer : (13 August 2014 - 12:39 AM) Ok Dbl see if you can see this one on Mobile
@  Chilli2627 : (12 August 2014 - 04:54 PM) If you have not played Bioshock Infinite, I highly recommend it, I put its story right up there with The Last of Us
@  DBMgamer : (12 August 2014 - 04:23 PM) @andrew I guess Microsoft want that Tomb Raider to be like Uncharted, as in not even showing up on the charts (stole that line).... But seriously its probably a timed exclusive and will arrive on PS4 with all the DLC's at some point I think
@  twentyONE : (12 August 2014 - 02:58 PM) FYI: The Golf Club launches the 19th on XONE & PC (later on PS4).  I sure hope its good....has some cool mechanics but just have to see how it plays.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 12:12 PM) Loving all of these trippy Indie Action/Adventure exclusives like The Tomorrow Children, RIME and WiLD. I thought the conference was great, lots of very interesting and fun looking games on the horizon.
@  twentyONE : (12 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I still can't believe that the Destiny PvP game modes are just all Deathmatch basically with no objective based gameplay - with the exception of "Salvage"- which is just 3v3 attack/defend.  My biggest gripe with both Halo and Gears of War is that after a few months everybody only plays Team Deathmatch.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 10:55 AM) Sony Gamescom press conference starting in 5 minutes: http://www.twitch.tv/playstation
@  Andrew6679 : (12 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) I'm so pissed about the Tomb Raider Xbone exclusive deal.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Live Draft is tenatively scheduled for Sunday, August 31st at 3pm EDT (21:00 CEST) so both US and European members have a chance to be there. Hope to see you this year!
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 09:14 AM) BattleStrats Fantasy Football is back for the 2015 NFL Season. We have 4 confirmed already and are looking to have a total of 10 teams, so let me know if you'll be returning or would like a spot! - http://bit.ly/1pMsRUV
@  Dbl Incertion : (12 August 2014 - 07:55 AM) Tomb raider to be xbox one exclusive http://m.bestbuy.com...d=1219094121829
@  Myelencephalous : (12 August 2014 - 07:42 AM) O Captain! My Captain!
@  twentyONE : (11 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam...but my favorite is Good Will Hunting.  Man, I'm old enough to remember watching Mork & Mindy...Nanu Nanu.
@  Andrew6679 : (11 August 2014 - 09:48 PM) I will never forget Flubber. EVER.
@  Grumpy Joe : (11 August 2014 - 05:36 PM) Was never a fan of his standup but greatly admired his dramatic acting...
@  DBMgamer : (11 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) wow Robin Williams.... didn't see that one coming
@  Michrulejj : (11 August 2014 - 03:50 PM) Aight I'll look into that one.  I know there is a Gamestop over by Walmart but thats a little bit away
@  Myelencephalous : (11 August 2014 - 01:56 PM) jj there's one on monroe st; you'll be able to walk to it.  or ride a bike.
@  Myelencephalous : (11 August 2014 - 01:53 PM) i'm a hands on kinda guy, i like gettin' physical
@  DBMgamer : (10 August 2014 - 08:00 AM) I use the share option so the address is a little shorter, I didn't think it made a difference, next thing I make I'll grab the web address
@  Dbl Incertion : (09 August 2014 - 10:42 PM) DBM idk how you link you're videos but they never show up as playable on mobile and there's no link to youtube. Just sayin.

Had a thought and put it in the shoutbox but wanted to hear what you all thought....

How cool would it be if you could adjust your "Zero" or point of aim/point of impact in game? I think it would make shooting adjustments at ranges much easier, but you could only do it say when spawning or something. Has dice ever said what they use for a zero?

Anyways, maybe theres a way to graph it out, I mean if they can calculate muzzle velocity based on attatchments and how it affects bullet drop in game, I would think that this wouldnt be too hard to do. Maybe the calculations in a multi player game would smash servers from having to track all that, I dont know, just a thought.

I would love to see optics with adjustments, but to be honest the gameplay is too fast to use it effectively as its used in real world. Changing the zero is not a bad idea but with out a range finder it is still kinda useless.

The Mill dot scope is your best bet in the game as it allows you quickly range and sight in targets, then from there it is all trial and error and practice to get to be an expert which make it more of a challenge.

I can remember playing a hunting game on the PC years ago and had a drop chart for all the weapons. It was awesome getting the super long shots.

There are very accurate ballistic charts for all the weapons and ammo used in the game. If they don't already use them I can't imagine that it would be that hard to replace the data they use with the actual ballistic data. I have only played the Beta for BF3 (and watched many youtube videos) but it does not look like they include windage in the bullet travel. I would also like them to add a range finder. You don't do any real world long distance shooting with out it.

You can do this in Red Orchestra 2. Every time you kill someone, it tells you the distance of the kill to help players learn to estimate distance, and you have distance-adjustable sights that function exactly the way their real-world counterparts did.

I'd find you an example of the adjustable scopes, too, but YouTube is being dumb for me. Sniper rifles can also use their ironsights even if there's a scope attached, just like in real life (at least, that's how it worked back then).

RO2 is a very very unforgiving non-hand-holding shooter, though. People say you can't play Battlefield like you play Call of Duty - RO is even further in that direction; you can't play RO like you play BF.

See, it can be done. As far as real life goes, firefights tend to happen pretty quickly, and aiming down sights is aiming down sights. I can look at a man sized sillouhette down range and tell how far away it is, close enough to put steel on target anyways so thats not the issue for me. Maybe just have a buddy stand against a wall in a private match as I move further and further away. Find Poa/Poi that way.

Ya in the old school gaming work.. DELTA FORCE 2 and DELTA FORCE BLACK HAWK DOWN. I used to be a top sniper because I could snipe from ANY point on the map and do it spot on. They had a build in rang finder in the scope its-self. You could start aiming down rang and as you moved ur scope up or down it would tell you how far u had to make the shot. But you would have to use TWO keys on the Key board to adjust your signs Up-Down or Right-Left for wind speed. Made sniping a very deadly tool in the team and you could do it very fast. But this concept is NO GOOD on PS3 or X-BOX because of the amount of keys used and the amount you have to use. Its all give and take. You would have to give up something to make the keys do other things. That will never happen. PC maybe... but not on PS3 or X-BOX. Unless they make some MAJOR changes to the sniper and when you have the scope up the button layout changes to allow it to happen. Like FRAG and Sec. FLASH turns to the range adjusters.. I dunno. Maybe someday but not today =P

In BFBC2 and in BF3 they have a thing called marksman bonus. I am sure everyone already knows about this. But just in case the marksman bonus is a bonus you get from head shots at any distance. One point per meter your bullet travels. Very good at remembering ranges. If you have a good eye and can judge distance (yes I realize I am talking video game distances. lol ) you can figure the bullets drop and range of that from the marksman bonus and your own elevation from the target. At least that is what I use when sniping from insane distances. It is all about trial and error. Once I know the distance I can normally land hits from said range on a constant basis.

Ya same here.. I was pulling off some awesome shots even with the 4x scope.. that quickly became my scope of choise. Just have to watch whats going on and it will get easyer to judge as u get more exp with the game.
