Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

theblackdragon

regarding the visual size of the Slim, don't you guys remember the comparisons and slight disbelief over the DSi to DSi XL and 3DS to 3DS XL screens? it's the same thing, slightly strange when actually put on an overlapping diagram but it's legit due to the size being total area as opposed to only length, width, or in this case, could be height too.

@rr529: honestly, you get used to it :3 you'll get a feel for the enemy spawns and learn to choose your battles after a while. sometimes running away and hitting things from afar is better than getting all up in their grill, especially where enemies like Elites and Hunters are concerned (though shotguns work great against both if you're daring!). Elites are a pain in the booty for sure but once you kill one and grab their energy sword, it's good times.

@DefHalan, @CanisWolfred: Halo games have been on Windows platforms since CE iirc, i remember my husband first played it on a computer. aren't they sticking with the RTS style for HW2? if so, it's perfectly suited for PC gaming :3

Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

@CanisWolfred: oh wow, yeah you kinda missed everything. there've been three major DLCs (The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King) and one free update (the April Update from this year), and Rise of Iron is of course on the horizon. They also have a live team doing holiday events now, there was one last Halloween (Festival of the Lost, cosmetic items), one for winter (Sparrow Racing League, two racing maps that counted for Crucible rep and SRL gear/shaders), and one for this past Valentine's (Crimson Days, featured the Crimson Doubles crucible mode with new shaders, ghosts, and an emblem to earn). if you're a hardcore endgame player like me you'll wind up with nothing to do but Crucible really after a while, i'm wondering if we'll get anything from the live team to tide us over before RoI hits.

the good news is that if you decide to pick it back up with RoI, they've really improved the quality of life since Vanilla, anyone can get endgame gear without being forced to raid and leveling gear/weapons is easier than ever. you can even get to max LL completely solo if you like, which was pretty much impossible before the April Update.

Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

@CanisWolfred: ah, i get it. i try to set aside time to watch the reveal livestreams when i can. they do have a short synopsis available on the main http://www.destinythegame.com website (click 'learn more' for a rundown) and also in the News section of the Companion App.

if you're not interested in looking at anything official, they had a good infographic within the first ten minutes or so of the Thursday livestream running down what was going on. probably the biggest bombshell was that legacy support will end with the April Update. everyone on a legacy console is free to continue playing all content up to that point, and there will be some sort of tool to port your 360/ps4 characters and gear to the current-gen consoles, but beginning with Rise of Iron, everything will be separated on the two console generations. no more concurrent progress. there's a new six-man raid coming, new faction to rank up with and enemies to fight (not just Taken reskins, complete new character designs), new story missions, new Crucible maps and a new mode (rumor has it that it may be a 12-person team playlist now that legacy support is being discontinued, but don't quote me on that lmao). we're also going to see another LL increase (they haven't said to what number yet exactly), we're getting new gear and weapons of course, and there's also going to be another new social space, iirc a patrol area too. so far preorders aren't live yet on XBL (PSN has been able to preorder since Thursday afternoon), but it's gonna be $30 for us here in the US.

oh, and the other huge thing was that gjally is finally gonna be back with RoI, this time they seem to have gone back to what was rumored to have been changed about Destiny before its original launch and it'll be a questline reward for everyone, collecting armor parts and stuff. idk if you ever got one for yourself (it took me 973 hours before my first gjally dropped!), but now everyone will have access to one. no more begging RNGeezus every week, lol. there will be a black-and-silver 'iron gjallarhorn' skin available for those who preorder the expansion, but it's just a cosmetic change, the weapon itself is not the preorder bonus.

Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

@CanisWolfred: did you watch the livestream from this past Thursday? the premise for this one is that the House of Devils has finally stumbled upon some sort of technology out in the wilds of Old Russia, a technology plague of some sort, and they've begun augmenting themselves with it. Apparently the Iron Lords (of which Lord Saladin is the last) gave their lives to contain this plague, and now that the Devils have brought it back, we're all gonna fall in under his banner and wipe it out. So far as we know, we're not going into the past on this one.

@DarthNocturnal: i'm hoping for some sort of CE on this one too. Bungie's said they're gonna be there at E3 this year, so if they're gonna announce one, it'll probably be there. i missed out on the TTK CE with the journal and the strange coin and whatnot, i really don't want to miss out either if there's something in the works. guess it helps we on Xbone can't even preorder yet anyway, lol.

@RR529: enjoy the adventure! just remember, if you wind up liking it there's an entire universe of Halo games for you to enjoy afterward, it's a great series :3

also, yes, hiiiii everyone~ so long story short i fell into Destiny (i know, unpopular choice, but i got really good at it and made some friends lol) back when i first got my xbone and i still play it on a daily basis. in the meantime i've also knocked out MCC, H5, Quantum Break (it was everything i dreamed it'd be back when i drooled over it E3s ago~), and Doom (loved it!), but i keep going back to Destiny and i'm stoked as hell for the next expansion (gimme dat flaming axe!) :3

Re: Xbox One/Xbox 360 Thread

theblackdragon

@RR529: if you start with Reach, a lot of it is not going to make sense, or at least not as much sense as if you were to have started from CE. Reach is really a tragic sort of prequel and i know i appreciated it a lot more after i had played the rest of the games. if you just want to get your feet wet with a really solid, fun Halo game, i'd recommend ODST to be honest, it's got a great story and plenty of action. i started with ODST first on a friend's recommendation, in fact. you don't play as a Spartan, but it'll at least get you started on a long path of fighting the Covenant and saving the universe and whatnot. plus it'll introduce you to the original Firefight mode, good times fighting endless hordes of bad guys :3

if you're dead set on choosing between only those two, though, i'd still probably recommend CE first. the Anniversary Edition is a huge step up from the original graphicswise and it comes with a one-map demo of Reach's version of Firefight iirc that's still really fun.

Re: One of the new moderators is getting a teensy bit mod happy...

theblackdragon

To explain regarding facepalm images, this has indeed been a thing since the Era of James. Facepalm macros were rampant at the time, they do nothing to add to a conversation between users except to point another out as a fool (which yours in context would have attempted to do) and if that's all you have to say to someone, we'd prefer if you kept it to yourself until you have something more constructive to say. We'd prefer to see users perhaps explain why they feel an idea is bad or why someone else is wrong from their perspective instead. I hope that makes sense! :3

As for the typo edits, you are absolutely in the right to point that out and we have discussed it internally. Thank you for the feedback, and we appreciate your patience as everyone settles into their new roles :3

Re: Really wishing I had it...

theblackdragon

Sometimes Nintendo runs promotions for free games if you register certain game codes via your Club Nintendo account, like a buy-one or buy-two-get-one deal. idk if TL would be one of the offered games (or even if/when Nintendo will run such a promotion again), but that would probably be the only way to score a free copy — other than that, asking parents/family members or saving money from your allowance (i'm assuming you're a minor since you haven't mentioned setting aside your own money here) would be your options for purchasing another copy. Best of luck to you!

Re: Troll Experience Stories

theblackdragon

i ban them. that part's usually over quickly enough, cut and dry.

but then i get to deal with fallout from users who thought they should've been banned ever since they signed up, users who felt they didn't deserve to be banned at all, users complaining about the number of spambots making it to the forums, users complaining that their freedom of speech has been infringed upon by our having deleted equally nasty responses to whatever the troll happened to post, users who want to post passive-aggressive comments about how the forums and site are moderated, and then maybe the troll themselves will send us something to try and Eddie Haskell their way out of their well-earned ban. or they may choose to wax loquacious about how many times they slept with my mother and/or what bruises they would inflict upon my person if they ever met me IRL.

that's usually how troll activity goes down around here IME.

Re: Nintendo fanbase intolerant to criticism?

theblackdragon

I apologize if this sounds harsh but please understand that i mean this with the utmost sincerity:

All I'm getting from this is that no one listened to you and your amazing, never-been-brought-up-before ideas and you're trying to rationalize how that possibly could've happened. No one wants to hear criticism about something they love. This is true for every community, whether it be about TV shows, books, games, movies, science, politics, religion, you name it. I'm not saying you shouldn't have said what you said, but please set aside any thoughts of being a special snowflake and if you're being an armchair analyst or expert, own it and move on. It's not an insult, it's an accurate descriptor. Bringing fuel with you like this from one community to another does nothing to further your cause, whatever it may be.

If you want to participate and discuss, by all means do so! just be ready for when someone disagrees, and there will always be someone disagreeing on the internet :3
