In case anyone (such as myself) didn't pay attention to E3 this year, check out the demo footage of Days Gone.

Basically, take the post-apocalyptic setting of The Walking Dead, make the protagonist a Son of Anarchy, and have huge numbers of fast infected from World War Z.

This is not even remotely like The Last of Us. They give you an assault rifle with HUNDREDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMO. That shit would never happen in a Last game (unless Capcom made it). Game looks goddamn awesome.

Did the planetary materials/ability kills grinding needed to move ahead for the Exotic sword quest in Destiny, and now I just have to wait until Wednesday and then get a team to help me kill a couple bosses in a special strike. Since I got earlier today (yet another) Super Good Advice (332 Light), I'll infuse that into my sword for one beastly weapon.

So FudgeMuppet on YouTube has around 30 character build videos for creating awesome roleplaying identities in Fallout 4 (shit, I'm definitely using some of them), but the best is by far the Santa Claus build.

It is the greatest character ever created.

Thumbs up

Whoa! My first venture into the video game thread. (I've got hexes for you evil wishers )

So last week, I started playing Transformers Earth Wars. It's been many years since I did any gaming of consequence (most notable games I have played were AVP, City of Heroes, and the one on one Star Wars games). I am really getting into this quite a lot. It reminds me of FarmVille a bit because you have to harvest energon and alloy constantly and upgrade your equipment to manufacture/store said material, and the battles are many.

You can fight it out against other people's bases on the opposing faction (of course I'm a 'Con) or you can join an alliance where you go on a quest of sorts earning points for your team, or you can do story line quests directly from the game itself. All along the way you earn xp, energon and alloy bonuses, points for base upgrades, and most importantly, you get to have a team of major characters you either earn from quests or acquire through the space bridge using crystals.

Right now, my mvp is Brawl, a Combaticon who figures into the gestalt Bruticus and has single handedly won more battles against opposing factions than any other character I have, including Megatron.

There's still a lot I don't understand, but I get the basic parameters and I'm having fun.

Hmm. Sounds like Halo Wars. Could be cool. I take it, you play on a PC?

Unfortunately, no, but I wish I could play it on the Macbook. This game is only for tablets and phones, which leads to a rather funny story....

I have my iPad mini which I've been using for 3 or so years. I downloaded the game (which is free) and got a message saying "this game cannot be played on your device," so after a few more attempts at downloading, I contacted the makers of the game to see if I was doing something wrong. They asked me for the serial number of the ipad, which I gave them, and then told me the iPad was too old and out of date. I've been experiencing a lot of issues with it anyways (pages refuse to load or I constantly get error messages) so I went out and bought a Samsung galaxy on sale at Target.

Now I can play. lol

^I would probably dig that, but I can't justify that cost.

I know. I want that so bad, but it'll have to be a Christmas gift for me or something.

Well, it only took a shit-ton of effort over the course of a number of months, raising my Light level nearly to max, and a couple dozen random partners, but eventually I was able to do it.

The Sleeper Simulant Exotic fusion rifle is now mine.

THANK FUCKING GOD.

I decided to try again tonight, and glad I did. Start was brutal as ever, getting killed no matter what, and the randoms quit right after we died the third or fourth time, which was right after we finished getting those fucking satellite codes (I am so goddamn glad that locks a checkpoint and you can just proceed).

Me and two other guys manage to blast our way through the rest of the mission with surprisingly low resistance...and then we fought the boss.

What an asshole.

That super-shank is fucking menacing on Heroic, and a total buzzkill on normal/easy, but here it's a massive headache. If it wasn't for me switching to Defender Titan after the first couple failures, I seriously doubt we would have made it, and even then, we failed a bunch (including one time where I tried to jump that damn central pit to reach a teammate only to fall in at the last inch, which royally pissed me off).

Probably the biggest contribution was the game inexplicably glitching out. I tried to kill a couple enemies, they kept respawning even post-mortem, so I turned my gun to the boss...only for it to spazz out and just hang in the air as a wreck, dead.

Whatever, mission accomplished. And completing it ranked me up with the Gunsmith, and he gave me a 330 JLB-42 (bad roll really, but the 42 isn't as good as the 47 anyway, so even a good roll on that really isn't worth it). I immediately infused the Sleeper to a beefier level.

Now I need to focus on getting a team and doing the Exotic sword Strike for my Hunter's future Raze-Lighter, and things will be progressing smoothly.

You should know by now that if you don't buy something your kids want when it becomes available, then it's automatically Santa's next gift for them.

I might get this. Watching Cinema Massacre's videos makes me nostalgic for the NES games I played and curious for some I didn't. Wish I never gave my old NES and Gensis to the neigbor's kid.
