    You say that like gamers are a demographic that are not on the progressively beneficial side to humanity. When gamers were amongst the first to welcome people of various race and gender in their passion... Though there may be a lack of female e-sports participants...are they excluded? no. Has anyone ever cried that the local arcade was racist? no (people qqing that an individual game is is another matter, actual gamers is another thing altogether however). I seriously cannot fathom why you shouldn't  HOPE for gamers to be one of the few groups of people who just may start such a welcoming attitude.
     
    And before you mention how mean, elitist, racist, whatever people are when you play lol, or counterstrike, or uhh...some other game that has a ton of players who play virtually nothing else...Those people aren't gamers, they are _insert individual game here_ addicts. People who love games, all games, most games, all games in several genres...whatever...Those are the people who apply to my definition of "gamer" that I am trying to (peacefully/respectfully) argue to you about.

    True but not really needed, it was already being voted up mostly for all the wrong reasons and would have been accepted anyway. They just added the people who don't actually know what censorship is crowd to the rest.
  6. Puntosmx liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Destiny expansions and Disc-Locked-Content   
    Also having got the DLC I can honestly say it's a massive disappointment. Whether it was on the Disc is a bit tougher to say given that Destiny runs from servers. What I can say is that there are few new environments - NO new worlds (!!!) and it still suffers from the same overly grindy problems but they're even more prominent here.
    If you do a level 25 mission the rewards you get blue rare (blue) gear. But if your level 25 already this is pointless. The things you need are ascendant materials and epic loot. But then the difficulty jumps to level 30 whcih you can't do because your level is too low. So what's the point?
    The new harder strike playlist (ROC) doesn't give you any benefits either it's just as random and grindy as every other playlist.
    Still no way to LFG for raids still no way to communicate with Clan members (I haven't even played Vault of Glass yet because can't get 6 people together). For that matter still no matchmaking on Raids. Why not? Why do you care so much if we're a bunch opf strangers who get our asses kicked? Stop being dicks and just sort it out.
    There is nothing in this expansion worth your money or your time.
    I was one of those people who agreed that destiny was flawed when it came out but had hopes that Bungie would fix the major problems  and that we would be getting a continuous stream of content whether we had purchased the DLC or not. 
    This expansion shows that this is not the case and the fact that they have already talked about Destiny 2 shows that there 10 year plan for Destiny was all just so much bullshit. 
    There are still things I like about Destiny. I find the gunplay fun, the multilayer is great and the world Bungie built is engaging but the game no longer competes with my attention with other titles. When I see a big Destiny update now I get excited for a minute then realise it's still just grind grind grind grind grind grind grind. 
    *sigh*

    Been playing it or a while now - can honestly say it is the most unfairly reviewed game of the year.
    There does seem to be a Bias against the LoS series in general though. Guessing because it's not SOTN for the 1000th time....

  16. TheRogueMonk liked a post in a topic by Winnum in PROS N CONS your words please! thank you   
    Cons: Just generally not enough content. not enough enemies not enough weapon types not enough missions not enough story not enough strikes not enough pvp maps or modes.
    Finding resources for Legendary gear is a pain. (If I'd known I would have been scouring for Spin Metal and Helium during my early levels). 
    Far too much of the endgame progression is based on luck rather than skill. Vanguard and Crucible rep is far too slow to accumulate and even then the gear you get is not as good as what you find in the field. 
    Pros: One of the best coop experiences I have played online. Seriously, people look out for each other in this game never had anyone freak out at me when I messed up.
    This game is like crack. The act of firing a gun feels great and the game does a great job of making you feel like some bad ass cyber warrior. This feeling of power is what keeps you coming back over and over. 
    Public events feel awesome- much better now that they appear more often - even at high levels a Public event can feel challenging as you still need someone to watch your back. They feel like a call to arms or taht someone put out the call of "HOW MANY PEOPLE WANT TO KICK SOME ASS?"
    What is there in PVP is pretty damn good - combat is fast fun and satisfying. Different classes, sub classes and powers mean you've always got to stay on your toes.

    That city we're protecting? Good to get an idea what it's like and whose living there. Maybe have a few missions set there (bunch of fallen find a weakness and you have to go clear em out)
    At the moment it's like.
    "This is the City!"
    "Oh cool can I go see it"
    "You are a guardian you live in the tower."
    "Yeah but if there's a whole city down there...."
    "The tower has all you need."
    "Look I just want to wander around and see what it's li-."
    "Nope."

  19. fridgeracer liked a post in a topic by Winnum in Gamer Mind: the issues we wont talk about   
    The changes in the way that games are reported on are signs of how the medium has grown up since the late 80 and more importantly the mid 90's.
    In the early days of games journalism the reviewers editors and staff were for the most part gamers themselves- games magazines were a niche market like fishing magazines or hunting mags. There was far less money involved back then than there is now. There was a perceived trust between gamers and the games media (the possible exception being 'Official' Magazines for the various platforms). If a game sucked it would get low scores, regardless of the ad space they placed in magazines.
    But money like time changes everything: Nowadays there is just far too much investment in AAA games to allow them to fail- not just in terms of the profit they make but also in terms of what has already been paid to make them in the first place. That's why we have the hype machines and why games journalists these days are courted into paying more attention to AAA titles.
    Destiny is a  great example of this - just imagine this game minus the hype. A game where the most often word used is Repetetive and garners scores of 6-7 out of 10.
    Without the hype machine working behind it getting us to put in our preorders and promising us all handjobs and milkshakes- this game would have been a flop (financially) that would have likely meant the end of Bungie as a viable studio and host of people out of work.
    Publishers and developers who invest huge money in their titles actually can't afford to be completely open with their products and hope you like it any way - they want you to NEED their product - they need to convince you that if you don't pick it up on release day you're going to be the only kid on your street without it. Is it all about securing jobs ? No of course not these guys also need to make a profit - the games industry is a business after all.
    Harsh as it may sound those of you who wound up with a copy of Watch_Dogs or Destiny on release day and felt let down- you weren't the victim of witch craft or high tech manipulation- you believed the hype and the marketing. Meaning that someone somewhere did their job properly,
    Other things to remember:
    A writer or journalist cannot say "This game is crap" in a preview or hands on. Legally they can't do that. They can tell you how the game feels to play and their general impressions on it. If they have been invited to the studios to play a preview build they will have been treated like royalty. Possibly provided with aforementioned hand jobs and milkshakes. Hopefully not by the same person because *brrrr* cold hands.
    Finally a companies reputation can precede it. When you tell me UbiSoft are doing an action game in a similar vein to Assassins Creed set in the Modern Day with hacking and guns and shit? I'm there. I loved Assassins Creed so of course I'm already interested.
    You tell me that Bungie are doing a new FPS with MMO/Borderlands/Halo hybrid? Sign me up. I loved Halo and Borderlands and Bungie always put out games worth playing.
    And this is BEFORE the hype machine gets in, before anything about the game has been played.
    Hell how many posts on this forum have we seen where someone has said 'We all need not to buy into the hype!' and then the Same person posts 'Holy Shit look at this sweet MGS 5 trailer!'
    If Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2- just announced it- how badly would you be looking forward to it?
    These games could suck. It could be boring or broken or repetitive or have only a couple of hours of gameplay- but you have faith in the pedigree of the studios involved and when they fail to live up to that faith that's when games feel betrayed.
     
    EDIT: Oh. Sorry "Got into a thing there. And then I forgot how it ended"

    That sounds like the Swordancer subclass- basically makes the Hunter class a fast but fragile melee assassin (Rogue style) with buffs that enhance this.
    On a side note I play warlock adn when doing Melee in PVP often think to myself 'Talk to the hand' or 'What did the fingers say to the face SLAP!'

    Spencer Mansion from Resident Evil and all of the locations attached to it in the original game, absolutely incredible. On top of this I would also list the locations in Japan and China represented in Shenmue & Shenmue II, they gave you the sensation of being in both countries, it felt extremely authentic, a very cultural experience.
  23. mouseno4 liked a post in a topic by Winnum in My personal tips for playing Destiny   
    More tips specifically for Starters.
    Play the first few story missions on Hard - they're not massively tough and you will get better gear and more XP. Don't buy anything except heavy Ammo. You will find much better stuff in the field than you will in the stores and whilst getting a new ship or sparrow is fun - it's kind of pointless. Wait until your in the higher levels and rolling in cash. Scrap old, under powered or 'junk' weapons and armour for parts and glimmer. Unless you pick up a super rare piece of armour for another clas don't worry to much about using the vaults for alternate classes. The most powerful weapon may not be the best for you to use- (if your more comfortable with an Auto-rifle switching to a more powerful scout rifle may seem like a good idea at the time, but if you're not comfortable using it it can quickly become a pain.) If you get stuck on an SP mission try playing some PVP for a while - you are still getting XP, glimmer et al.
  24. Winnum liked a post in a topic by mouseno4 in My personal tips for playing Destiny   
    These are only MY personal tips for playing Destiny that i have either found out the hard way, or have found out from friends.
     
    Never ignore melee. Your melee attack is one of the most powerful killing moves you have. I have lost count how many times i have save my own life with a melee to the face of something about to kill me. Always reload all 3 weapons. Kinda sounds obvious, but i have lost count how many times since launch, where ive switched to an alternate weapon only to find it with 0 rounds in the thing and have to suffer through reloading it. In a group, use your Super often but not to the point where your always on cooldown. It has a lengthy cooldown, but some are super effective at clearing lots of enemies at once. Use it even more so in a group, as you spawn orbs for your team to recharge their Super. Collect all bounties that are available for the content you MIGHT be doing. I have lost count how many bounties ive completed without realising i was doing so. On the subject of bounties, always, always, ALWAYS switch out your gear that has the yellow square around them. The yellow square represents a ''max'' level item that cannot gain any more bonuses. Turning in bounties is almost guaranteed to level SOMETHING. Turning in a bounty with a slot filled with a max item... wastes the bonus. You dont have to purchase that bonus, but it is there if you later decide to use that weapon. Learn your double jump special. From memory, that is the double jump for the Hunter, the glide for the Warlock etc. For my class right now, it is the mid-air teleport. Learning to use it effectively can save your hide. Hit the L3 button ALL the time. Learn to love it. When your Fireteam is ahead of you, racking up the XP, kills etc. you dont want to be left behind. Dont pidgeon hole yourself. Complement your weapons with each other as well as your abilities. A Titan is great in short range with their abilities, so using a Shortgun and a fully automatic machine gun... limits your killing ability to only short to mid range. Dont waste your Glimmer. You will be using it quite a lot during the post level 20 levels to unlock gear traits. Sure that emblem, ship, Sparrow, shader is great, but its better to spend it on things that will help you. Wasting it all on buying everything at the start will only gimp your gear and make your life harder. You cannot run out of ammo. If you do end up burning your PRIMARY ammo, wait 30 seconds. You will get a whole lot of primary, special and sometimes heavy ammo out of thin air. Help your team mates in a Strike. You never know, they MIGHT just revive you. Will add more as i think of them.
