  1. I'm going to the Alamo Drafthouse on Friday to watch Spider-Man. Having recently moved to Austin, TX recently, this is the first time I'll be going. For anyone who has been there - what's it like? Any must have food or drink? Any info helps!
  2. Hello Angry Army, My name is Elijah - long time viewer of the show, first time in a long time posting on the forums. I recently moved to Austin, TX after landing a full-time job and am enjoying the scenery so far. I'm a former QA Tester in the video game industry, attended E3 several years in a row, abd had the pleasure of meeting Angry Joe after a 3 year ordeal of trying to get a picture with him at E3 lol. I'm still getting set up with my apartment but if any Angry Army members are based in Austin, TX and wouldn't mind meeting up that would be great! Hope you're all safe and happy with the holidays coming up!
  3. I made a thread consisting of important information in case this game does get picked up as an official game supported by the Angry Army. If it doesn't get picked up, then the thread is there for new players in veterans alike. It's in the PC forums under Role Playing Games with the title "Essential information about DC Universe Online" or thereabouts.
  4. I've never played City of Heroes, but I will say this - if the game was as great as people claim it to be, then it would still be around. CoH lasted a pretty long while...something like 10 years or thereabouts which is unheard of in the MMO market. As for me, I prefer DC Universe Online. The character customization is awesome, the powers/weapon style combos are great, exploration is encouraged and rewarded, you get to play with and fight against your favorite Heroes/Villains, and if you're into PvP then DCUO has some of the better PvP content than most MMOs going today. There are drawbacks and flaws with the game, but there are drawbacks and flaws with every game...especially MMOs. Definitely keep DCUO around as it'll be fun to play with friends (or solo!) from time to time
  5. I guess I'm getting shoehorned into the DCUO category here (far from fan boy as I do admit there are faults with the game), but I recommend DC Universe Online for at least a little bit to see if you like it. Initially with the Free to Play account, you can only make 2 characters and have a $1500 limit on cash, but once you see what you have to spend money on that limit for f2p isn't that bad at all and makes sense. Lots of character customization, lots of powers to choose from, and weapon styles to play around with. To get you started, I even made a thread with links to a bunch of useful information for DCUO. I won't link here, but it's called Essential DCUO Information.
  6. This game is essentially what Diablo 3 (when it originally came out) was supposed to be. It was fun to play for a little bit, but I didn't have anyone to play with so I got bored rather quickly. That said, it definitely is worth playing though from the small amount of time I put into it.
  7. I've played it, but didn't stick with it for too long. It's interesting and the style is pretty unique to set it apart. It's essentially playing a manga or thereabouts. Fun for a cup of coffee, but not so great long term.
  8. I'm a sucker for the Macho Man mod for the Dragons. Always gets a good laugh out of me whenever I hear "YEAH!" followed by fire breathing.
  9. I've played several MMOs and I have to say that of those that I've played, DCUO gets my vote despite it not being on this list. To me, it's the most fun I had with a MMO in ages and that's after playing World of Warcraft for a year and a half (I stopped at Wrath of the Lich King). The account set up is pretty logical to me and offers accessibility with more rewards to spending money on the game. The mechanics and character creation are amazing and I really enjoy the different powers plus weapon styles that exist. Sure the game has it flaws and I'm not negating those whatsoever (I do however contend that the game is NOT pay to win and I've yet to see any examples as such), but for my money the game is excellent and well worth the time to seek out and play.
  10. Count me as part of the few (or many) people that wants to see the Angry Army officially support DC Universe Online. This isn't a "support this game thread!" or anything like that, rather I'm going to pick up the reigns to help out other Angry Army members who are new to the game, veterans of the game (like myself), or are on the fence about whether or not to devote time and potentially money to it . As such I will be linking to useful information concerning the various powers, weapon styles, roles, mechanics of the game, and other relevant topics. Getting Started Guide to Understanding Powers and Roles: http://www.slangstrong.com/video-game/dcuo-guide-to-roles/ This is a *very* basic and outdated look at the powers and roles that are in DC Universe Online. It's over a year old and some powers are missing, but the important thing to take away from this is that the information presented here is more or less what any and every DCUO player needs to know starting off. It's a fantastic starting point and solid base for those who want to learn the basics of the game before diving in.Oracle's Database Guide Index: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/oracles-database-guide-index.509/ Overall index of the guides I'll mainly be linking to. You're free to go here and look for yourself and click accordingly, but I'm going to be linking the more useful and helpful links down below. This is here mainly for those who want to know where I'm pulling the majority of my links from. Firstplayers: Everything you need to know! Part 1 - Character Creation and introduction: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/firstplayers-everything-you-need-to-know-part-1-character-creation-and-introduction.162647/ Solid information for first time players and for those who want a refresher course in DCUO before diving back in. Fairly basic and again essential for a starting point in understanding what DCUO is all about. The person who wrote that guide also links to another guide as well. Feel free to check that one out, but it's outdated moreso than this one. Firstplayers: Everything you need to know! Part 2 - Frequently Asked Questions for levels 10 - 29: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/firstplayers-all-you-need-to-know-faq-level-10-29.179162/ Part 2 of 2 of basic information that's essential in getting to know DCUO or refreshing your memory of the game. This one talks about leveling, how to go back and forth between Gotham and Metropolis, using the map, gear, etc,etc. Yodadog's Guide for DCUO Terms and Acronyms: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/yodadogs-guide-for-dcuo-terms-acronyms.152849/ As with every MMO, this game has its own jargon and lexicon for players to get used to. This guide helps in spelling out what those are and what they mean. They are listed alphabetically and presumably it's getting updated as time goes on. Hi-res Maps of everything / Collections / Exobits / Investigations / Briefings: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/hi-res-maps-of-everything-collections-exobits-investigations-briefings.271/ A *huge* part of this game is exploration as the open worlds of both Gotham and Metropolis are pretty large. Collecting things leads to experience points upon completion of a briefing or investigation, styles that you can customize your characters look with, and pieces of exobytes that are used to modify your gear once you have 8 of a kind. Making the difference - Starting a League: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/making-the-difference-starting-a-league.164493/ Leagues in DCUO are what guilds are in every other MMO. They serve the same purpose and whatnot. The only difference here is that in order to create a league, a player *must* have a Legendary account (monthly subscription). Since it's still being deliberated as to whether or not the Angry Army will officially support this game, I figured I'd go ahead and add this in. Speaking of Legendary account status...When you drop Legendary or when you become Legendary: https://forums.station.sony.com/dcuo/index.php?threads/when-you-drop-legendary-or-when-you-become-legendary.155629/ This is really important and something that I hope our Lord Commander Angry Joe looks at so he can see the difference between F2P and Legendary account status. This goes into pretty neat details about what happens when you first go into Legendary account status then explains what happens if you decide to downgrade back to Premium or F2P (which I don't think you can drop all the way down to F2P once you pay the monthly fee). If you're curious about the PvE and PvP content guides, click the index I linked and scroll down to the bottom. I didn't include them here since I was only covering the bare basics and essentials needed to get back into the game or playing it for the first time. Hopefully the information provided will be of use to some of you and I will update this as time goes on with more useful links that I may find later on down the road. As for me and my experience with DCUO, I first started playing when it went F2P, which was 3 years ago or something like that. I stopped playing in early 2012 due to moving out here in Hollywood and started playing again last week after a 2+ year hiatus. And while I may not have the end all be all awesomesauce raid or PvP gear, I do have three level 30 characters (30 being the max level) with the third one ascending a couple nights ago. The three level 30s in question are: Caden Nova (Hero mentored by Batman), a Fire Tank; Abaddon Frost (Villain mentored by Lex Luthor), a Hard Light Controller; and Kassidy Entrerie (Hero mentored by Superman), an Electricity Healer. I don't have much experience in the PvP or Raid content as I mainly spend my time leveling my new characters or work on acquiring tier gear with my level 30s. If any of you wish to play with me let know on here and I'll gladly give the information needed as I'd love to help out fellow Angry Army members. Also, this thread is for discussing the game, asking for advice, and other like minded things. I don't know that much myself, but I am certainly capable of finding out the information and happen to have a neat stockpile of links and resources readily available.

  12. Greetings one and all! My name is Elijah and I'm a new recruit to the AJSA. I've been following our Lord Commander Angry Joe's Youtube channel for 2+ years now and was able to briefly (like 5 minutes briefly) meet him at E3 last year. I even gave him my business card! So some pertinent information (in no particular order): - First and most importantly, I am a Veteran of the United States Navy. I served for four years from February 19th, 2007 to February 19th, 2011 onboard the USS Arleigh Burke, DDG 51, as an Operations Specialist stationed in Norfolk, VA. My main job was radar navigation and specifically to me I maintained and cataloged well over 100 pieces of Classified and Secret documents and materials. I literally had 10 safes chock full of critical information that I was responsible for. - I was honorably discharged as a Petty Officer 3rd class and moved to Tampa, FL to begin my college education using my military benefits. After spending a year and going through some rough patches, I decided to preempt myself and move out to Los Angeles to attend another, better school in the Los Angeles Film School. I went from May 2012 - November 2013 and graduated with Honors and was named Valedictorian of my class. I now have my Associate of Science Degree in Game Production and as such, I am a Game Developer now! - My username Defective came about when I first played Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos and was making a Battlenet account. I was trying to think of a name and the first word to pop into my head was Defective, hence I stuck with it ever since. - I started gaming with the Atari at 3 years old and haven't looked back since. - My favorite consoles are the Super Nintendo and PS2 and my favorite games are Final Fantasy 6 and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2, respectively. - Around when I was 12-14 years old I decided I wanted to become a game developer. I would forget this several years later and many years would pass before I remembered this. - PC gaming popped into my life when I was 10 years old or so and started with Alone in the Dark before eventually upgrading to the very first Warcraft game. Consoles and handheld gaming were around as well and I gamed aplenty with friends and by myself over the years. Now I mainly do PC gaming since I do everything else on my laptop as well. - Finally, my recent obsession is DCUO after watching Joe's character creation video and am glad I got back into it after a 2+ year absence. I'm really hoping the Angry Army goes all in on this as I'm totally willing to pick up the reigns on the PvE side of things and help out the newer guys and gals who decide to give the game a try. Thank you to Joe and the Commanders for having me and I look forward to seeing you all around on here and in various games! Below is a picture of me in uniform. This was taken back in April 2010, 4 years ago!
  13. I just finished re-downloading this game and thankfully my two main characters are there (Level 30 Hero Fire Tank, Level 30 Villain Light Controller). I have two sub characters (Level 11 Villain Earth DPS/Tank, Level 12 Hero Nature/Healer). I also just created a brand new character to get myself back into the groove of things (Level 3 Hero Lightning DPS/Healer) and have one more slot to use, being under a Premium account. This game is a lot of fun and I *love* PvE and doing solo/duo content. It's actually fun grouping up with people and running an instance. I wouldn't be opposed if this game got officially supported and I'd be willing to pick up the reigns on the PC side of things if we needed it. PvP isn't for me and I always find that sort of stuff boring, but I've been looking for a reason to get back into DCUO and with Angry Joe and the AJSA, I do believe I found it. EDIT: If anyone wants to play with me, just shoot me a message on here and I'll give you the appropriate details.
