  • We finally completed Vault of Glass on Monday. Everything before the boss is easy, but Atheon is just a real slog. Everything has to go right, and so often it doesn't. But now that we've done it legit, we'll probably just cheese the boss from here on out, as you can bypass the entire battle via a spawn glitch and still get the final chest rewards (just not the actual completion).
    Do good. Be well. Make happy.

    • Just bought and downloaded Jotun: Valhalla Edition. Game is too beautiful not to have. I'm seriously thinking about getting Maneater but I might hold off, although I'm fairly certain I'll get Darksiders III. Tempted to get Wasteland 3 as well and I might also buy Monster Hunter World (will hold off on Iceborne until I decide if I love World or not).

      Messenger and Axiom Verge are both on heavy discount so I think I'll finally get those, since they're at 60% off whereas every time before I saw them at 50% sale. I scoured the latest indie games sale on PSN but I didn't see this game I glimpsed last year, top-down dark adventure game, older-style graphics but heavy on the gore. I don't think I've seen it on sale since a year ago.

      • Downloaded Darksiders III and its two add-ons.

        Also, hackers breached EA and stole game source code and tools. CNN has an article on it.

        • In the middle of trying to complete league challenges in Division 2, the modem died. We ordered a replacement for $200 and my mother got an IT guy she knows to swing by the house and help troubleshoot the broken one, just in case. Takes a little doing but we reboot it and everything seems to be fine for now and hopefully for a long time yet (thing isn't even a year old).

          Probably will send the replacement model back for a refund but I'm glad to be reconnected. Finished the league, bot the Stake trophy, and now I can enjoy doing Destiny 2 content and other online stuff instead (but I can set aside time for grinding resource convoys for easy XP to max out my season rank in Div2 until the next league rolls around, at least).

          Actually, last night I got surprisingly good sleep...because there wasn't a loud TV blaring from down the hall since our streaming was down as a result of the modem going down.

          And of course I missed my chance to get the deluxe edition of RE2 yesterday. Sad face. Now I have to wait until it comes around again on heavy discount (couple sales right now but very little on offer, which is good for me).

          • Well, as of today's update the Season of the Splicer is officially finished insofar as all story quests have been released and can be completed for the seal. I signed in just in time to claim my new title and now can't get back into the game because of constant error codes and the servers being full. Bungie is looking into it so hopefully resolution comes soon.

            Now I just need to complete Presage one last time and the Chosen seal will also be mine. Sucks that nobody seems to be selling 3d-printed seal pins on Etsy like the ones you order from Bungie, because those have to be relatively easy to replicate for anybody with moderate printing experience, I would believe.

            • 1) I missed goddamn Father's Day in Arkham City so I unplugged my PS4 from the Internet and changed the date, then visited that bastard Calendar Man. Now I just have Christmas and then I never have to play the game on time again.

              • Since Hung Jury was the nightfall reward for this week, I spent all day grinding the Inverted Spire strike (hero difficulty). I must have done that damn mission 50 times, 9 am to 9 pm, only a few breaks in between, and I got the Wardcliff Coil catalyst in my second-to-last run and then finally got Hung Jury the next go, on the verge of giving up. I did get a bunch of minor rewards (some well-roled exotic armors, bunch of enhancement cores, materials) but all I wanted was that damn rifle. What a relief to at last be done with it.

                • So last night I tried to get a second Hung Jury, succeeded (also a decent roll) and then saw my one friend was online. I hopped into his session and we chatted, and then we went into the Last Wish raid to get the free chest. I got some gloves, a rocket launcher, and a fusion rifle (buddy was hella jealous at that last one). I told him I wanted the auto rifle.

                  Come home today and try again on my Hunter, and lo and behold I got a well-rolled auto from the free chest. Then I got legs and then a sniper rifle (and a couple raid-only mods). I'm going to enjoy the hell out of that auto rifle (and yes, I immediately masterworked it).

                  • PSN is having a huge sale, and I mean huge. So much shit on offer it's insane. And there's a ton of stuff that I want at pretty noticeable discounts, so it looks like I will be nursing my wallet back to health for months after this.

                    Included this time around, I will have to finally get Beyond Light, Monster Hunter World, Resident Evil 2, Maneater at the least. If Thief is still only $2 then I'll grab that too (it's practically always that price nowadays).

                      50 runs for your first Hung Jury?! Oof, and I thought my 27 runs for my first one was bad.

                      Nice, all I want is the bow from that raid, but I never seem to be get it.

                        • Bought Beyond Light, but had to do a bunch of chores and I was chasing both the last kill I needed for the Dredgen title and also raising up my Division 2 season pass, as well as a few household chores, so I haven't had a minute to even try to do the campaign or LFG for Trials to get the SMG. I'll have to do that tomorrow night.

                          For the past few hours it's been raining like hell. Pool's almost filled to the brim, the lights started flickering the moment I turned on my console, so I'm just going to do my gaming after Monday's shift is over.

                          • I completed this season's challenges in Destiny today, and watched a friend burn out on the game as we ran some Trials for one of them. Pretty sad, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's back on in a couple weeks. As for myself. Now that I'm done with the season, I'll probably only play when my clan wants to Raid or they need a third for some Nightfalls.

                            I also finally started God of War this past week, so I'll probably focus on that for awhile.

                              • Managed to grind the 3-win bounty for Trials of Osiris and got my Warlock a spiffy new helmet. I need to do my Titan and Hunter, at least my Titan, tomorrow night. We also managed to get a fairly skilled third player and we scored a few wins, rounds only and not matches, but it got me my Shayura's Wrath sub-machine gun and that thing is a nice addition to my arsenal. I'm going to have to make a habit of cliff jumping every weekend. Managed to put a little time into clearing a few unnecessary items from my vault but there's a long way to go before things are handled. Haven't gotten Beyond Light campaign progressed for a little bit so I need to get back to that one day.

                                I also spent a portion of this morning doing missions and gained around ten levels in the Division 2 season pass, so I should be able to finish everything before the season ends in around 4 weeks.
