Watched that myself yesterday.

The game really is incredibly hard, and not as good as most people remember. I played it in the arcade a bunch (those handlebar controls, man), and holy piss was it difficult.

I did really laugh when he broke the window for real, and then at the end.

I feel overall that the game is hard to the point of open unfairness, but won't deny that it is surprisingly fun in spite of the severe challenge and poor design. You just want to keep playing it.

I suppose Paperboy is the main inspiration for the Souls games by From Software.

I didn't play that in arcade (don't even recall seeing it). The handlebars look kind of cool, from a distance anyway.

That's how I think of it.

I play some arcade and 8-bit ports on the XBox and it makes me wonder how I ever got into games. No in-game saves, no breaks for videos and
load. Limited pauses and respawns. They're tough. I so much prefer being able to pause for some more Lo-carb Monster or say "screw it, I'll pick up right here tomorrow."

Agreed! I'm in the Necropolis battling a demon with a giant club, so I think I'm closing to finishing the game. I love that super shotgun! Never leave home without it.

For just a few precious moments last night, I thought I'd finally gotten Red Death in Destiny.

It was just Hard Light.

Damn.

Red Death isn't that good anymore due to that type of pulse rifle nerf.

that's the diff from playing @home (where the player is coddled & not pressed for time), and playing on an arcade cabinet (where U have NO PERKS WATSOEVER, and yur trying to get the most outta that quarter......and being aware theres a person or three behind ya waiting their turn after U fail.)

aka, the Good 'Ol Days.

He'll unlock different-colored beanie caps and the final villain will be so hard the film will end with the heroes all dying pathetically. Just like the game!



I don't know how the hell I did it, but I went 16-6 in Inferno Rumble in Destiny. Using Hard Light and Ironwreath-D on my Nightstalker Hunter. I also got an Exotic Primary engram...which turned out to be another Suros Regime, 328 Light.

My Titan ranked up in the Crucible and got a 330 Byronic Hero, but I'll probably infuse that into something else.

Now I need to clear out the Gunsmith test weapons and a ton of bounties on my Warlock.

I don't know how the hell I did it, but I somehow managed to get 7 headshot kills with the Imprecation in Destiny (it's a horribly, god-awful piece-of-shit-style revolver, a goddamn nightmare to use in competitive play).

I just need to wait until Wednesday and then I should have the First Curse. God, I still have to do this with my Titan and my Warlock still needs to do the "X kills with a Hand Cannon while Primary Telemetry is active" step, never mind all the other shit. Doubt I'll bother with my Warlock's steps if I manage a second run with my Titan, since First Curse isn't even that good.

I also got the Badger CCL and (finally) another 1000-Yard Stare, although Stare is not a god roll (damn it), so I'll have to hold out yet again for one.

And my Warlock opened a mystery box and got that Taken-style ship, Waning Star. Looks beautiful.

Getting 7 headshots with the imprecation is easier than you think, it doesn't have to be in one game like the old exotic quest lines of year one. Also, if you want the weapon for your other characters, you don't have to do the quest line again, just buy the gun from your exotic kiosk. Doing quest lines for weapons on alt characters is overkill.

Managed to not die from Baxx in Lost to Light, managed to reach the Taken secret boss...with 10 seconds left.

Handful of rare engrams were worthless.

Total bullshit that this is the only way to get Black Spindle.

Ok... next time this is a mission, inbox me on PSN. I'll get a clan mate to help you do this.

Special thanks to Chosen, as he just helped me out in a big and unexpected way.

I thought we'd be retrying the hard version of Lost to Light to get Black Spindle, but instead we did this week's Nightfall mission. I figured what the hell, worst we could do is fail. When it loaded up as this one mission that is always a challenge for me and whichever randoms I get paired with, I thought it was going to be another hard-won victory.

Totally the opposite: everything goes pretty damn well in comparison to what happens when I do it in the Heroic Strike playlist.

It was the first Nightfall I'd ever done, and damn was it good. I even got the Legendary pulse rifle Grasp of Malok, which Chosen reviewed once I'd equipped it and said it was a decent PvP roll. Another awesome toy to play with.

Tomorrow we should be able to get me a Black Spindle, and if I'm very lucky the Vienna Singer ship.

Dead by Daylight Beta -- Talk About Games (Mike & Ryan)


Very much like the upcoming Friday the 13th game, but with original characters.

Took two tries and a third member, but me and Chosen finally killed all the Taken in the Lost to Light secret area and I finally got Black Spindle. Fucking great.

And then the three of us did the Challenge of the Elders. I'm not sure leaving once you beat the third round is of no consequence, because I'm sure visiting the treasure room and getting more stuff was going to happen, but either way, I got some nice rewards (namely completing another quest line and getting a 330 Awoken shotgun with some good stats/perks).

Since I was clearing out bounties and whatnot earlier, I ended up getting a 330 4th Horseman Exotic shotgun, so I infused my new Black Spindle with that instead of using the 330 Extrasolar.


Also gained a bunch of codenames in Phantom Pain, but a bunch of those involve slaughtering loads of dudes, which means I'm going to have to burn through one of the kiddie-rescue missions a dozen times to work off the shit-load of demon points I'm building up. At least it's progressively harder to become Demon Snake after you transform the first time.
