As it turns out, that trophy for the 15 Daedric Artifacts in Skyrim will not be mine in the near future.

Turns out there are 15 specific items to obtain. I had some already and was getting the rest when it turns out I did the mission for that item some time ago and destroyed it.

I went ahead and got the two crime related bronze trophies but I had to start a new game to get that last silver trophy. I have to make myself a badass again in order to get them so some time is in order.

yikes

So the second Faction Rally is live for Destiny 2, and although Bungie removed the first Rally's token farming exploit and made things more rewarding overall, somebody found a massively-rewarding exploit. In probably only a couple hours tops, I had nearly 400 tokens for my Dead Orbit-aligned Titan. Being a stingy bastard as always, Arach Jalaal refused to give me the handful of things I needed up front, and although I have 3 of the 4 desired items, I'm still missing a set of arms for my Titan. I'll level up one more rank but after that I'm stopping because I'm either close to max rank or have just hit it, and I don't want DO to get another victory.

If this exploit isn't patched out, I'm going to repeat it for my Hunter (who's with Future War Cult) so that I can get those sweet guns. Hopefully FWC gets the win this time because I really want their fusion rifle (they usually have good FRs). Don't care much for the armor, not bad but not exactly bringing the wow for me this time.

What's the exploit? I play Destiny 2 (CPLCHUD).

Go to EDZ, Winding Coves spawn. Run into the rock cluster straight ahead, just rushing to the Lost Sector boss (Fallen captain). Kill him, open the cache, jump up to the doors (you may need to kill a few extra enemies to get them to open, I dunno), then jump up the ledges and run through the tunnel. Once you see "Winding Cove" on the bottom left of your screen, turn around and go back to the boss room's doors, and get the cache again.

You can farm the shit out of those tokens in no time. I literally was listening to an old Anthrax album while doing it and got hundreds of tokens in around an hour.

Destiny Tracker has issued Elo bans to cheating players

This'll barely put a dent in the problem, likely, but it's a damn good move and hopefully it gets the ball rolling.

So yesterday I see that EA had make a comment about how it was handling fans' response to its loot box bullshit in Battlefront II, and when I go to bed the comment had been downvoted over 10,000 times.

I wake up, check reddit. First topic on the front page is that EA's response is the single most downvoted comment in the history of the site. I check and see the comment literally skyrocketed to 164,000 downvotes.

Checked my E-mail a few minutes ago, and a trending article Yahoo picked up is about the overwhelmingly-negative response from fans, this dubious record that EA has now achieved.

GG, EA.


edit --- -469k right now. People are really fucking mad at EA.

And for good reason.

There needs to be a College Humor, Funny or Die, or SNL skit where some PR agent keeps popping his head in and telling his supervisor exec just how bad the company's rep is becoming, just constantly telling him how many thousands more negative reports on customer service have been filed.

I haven't bought an EA game in some time, they are a far cry from the 90s when I loved them.

To me they are the poster child for churned out corporate junk with money being the driving factor instead of things like quality, art, pushing the genre, etc. . .

Fuck em, but unfortunately it doesn't matter. People are still going to buy the new Madden NFL and whatever FPS they have.

I pre-ordered BF2, looks great. As long as I get to play as Boba Fett I'm sold.

Story for the new Battlefront II might one day interest me (assuming both it and the game overall aren't garbage, first one was lackluster), but especially given this exploding train wreck, I know I've got far better options to spend my money on (actually want to get Dragon Ball Fighter Z when it comes out, and I've never touched any of those games despite being a big fan years ago).

If I ever can, I might get a digital/on-demand copy of the old Battlefront II, because that game was goddamn great. I'd love pitting the various factions against each other (CIS vs Empire, Rebels vs CIS) and conquer the galaxy over and over again.

Wall Street Journal is reporting that there's a new Super Mario Bros. film in the planning, done by Universal's Illumination.

The gameplay itself is great, but the having to play for 80 hours or pay close to $600 just to unlock Luke and Vader killed all my interest in this game

Unlocking everything in Battlefront II requires 4,528 hours or $2,100


The curious case of the EA game dev who said he received death threats

I saw both Luke and Vader yesterday when I was playing, so somehow people are already unlocking them, day 2 after game release.

Oh wow I didn't know that was an option, but I'm like only level 5 on it so far. I'm kind of trying to get everything beat on MGS V before moving on to another game. I'm pretty obsessed with Metal Gear.

Since I was half-asleep when I posted this last night: they clearly say that microtransactions are returning later, which means the removal is temporary and anybody wanting to actually change things for the better will still need to either buy used or outright refuse to buy.

I plan to buy used way down the line (got other things to play, after all, and I want to learn plenty about the gameplay before I decide to even purchase it).
