  1. Im gonna jump in here for anyone that comes across this looking for headphones for the Xbox One.... I went through a ton of different headsets - Hyper Cloud, Astros, Turtle Beach Stealth, Rigg...and returned all of em. I then got a pair of Lucidsound L35x wireless that communicate with the X1 like a controller....and they are absolutely amazing. Clear, loud AF, mic is good. Highly recommend these for anyone looking.
  2. My 10hr trial just ended. I wound up clearing 1 tomb. The others I am very close. I have get more combos, but I can’t figure out what exactly triggers a combo. I’ve gotten it work playing with others, but can get one to trigger solo. Playing as a ranger. Freeplay needs work. 1.) they need a minimap 2.) they need to incorporate the squad member status in hud like they do in the main missions. 3.) squad should appear in the minimap 4.) you should be notified of world events and they should also appear in the minimap 4.) I should be able to fast travel to striders in other areas. As of right now it’s quicker to leave the instance and reload in on the strider you want. 5.) if a squad memeber is not in combat, you should be able to fast travel to them 6.) they need more people in freeplay. It’s much to large for 4 people. Should be 12-16 the open world they created is intriguing and full of cool shit but as of right now feeeplay = solo play and a lot of the world events are tough solo.
  3. I did a bunch of contracts and agent missions before I took the tomb mission. I have a bunch of the tomb requirements halfway done but I don’t think i have anymore contracts ready at this point. I’ll have to check. Its not a bad mission, but it’s a huge departure from the previous 8ish missions I’ve done. As for the difficulty, I agree. So far it’s been a breeze. I have a sniper rifle that has explosive rounds. It’s a 2HK on most yellow bars. It’s a complete beast of a gun. I have no other complaints. I love the game so far. I just hope the loot drops get better as we get into endgame. Otherwise that’s pretty much going to ruin it. It’s good to have random stat rolls on guns so you can chase specific builds, but there needs to be truly unique weapons.
  4. So turns out, I signed up for EA access so I could play BFV early. I forgot to unsubscribe so I’ve been playing anthem early on the X1X. I put about 7hrs in so far. Rifht off the bat, it’s running a lot smoother than the beta. So far I’ve only had one audio glitch and that’s been it. Load times are shorter, framerate feels like they smoothed it out. As for the game, it’s been really fun up to the point that I’m at. If you enjoyed the beta, you’ll like the full game. However the mission I’m on has brought the game to a screeching halt. So that’s where I’m at. My only concern as I’m playing is that I’m getting a ton of the same guns over and over. From common->green->blue it’s the same name just better stats and perks. I really hope there are some unique exotic weapons in this game that really stand out from the stuff that seems to be dropping frequently.
  5. Im actually glad I have to wait another week to play on console. I need to finish the epilogues of RDR2. Im off next week, so it gives me plenty of time to tackle. however, please post impressions!!! really hoping this game lives up to the hype.
  6. I saw: Anthem Days Gone Sekiro Devil May Cry 5 mortal Kombat 11 crackdown 3 metro exodus https://www.target.com/c/video-game-deals/-/N-0snqsZ55e69?type=products&lnk=VideoGamesInclu
  7. Im really only interested in this game BECAUSE its a Sony Exclusive and they haven't disappointed me once in the last several years.

    Now that's an Oreo

    i actually prefer a short, wide glass of milk.... so i can sink the little sumnabitches in there and still grab em with my fingers when they are all soggy and falling apart.
  9. same. While Im not terribly excited for it, I have no doubt I will get at least 30Hrs out of it and that makes it a worthwhile purchase for me.
  10. yep. On Xbox. playing mostly solo, so i would love to get a crew together for Anthem and Division
  11. Im starting to shift to digital - mostly because on my xbox, when I buy digital, my son gets a copy to play as well. However, its tough to pass up a deal for 3 brand new games for around $40/ea. especially games where I will either probably not finish, or play it and never touch it again (Days Gone, Sekiro). My problem is there isnt a 3rd game on that list I really want.
  12. This is where Im at as well. Loved D1. D2 feels promising, but I was bored playing the demo...it was more of the same. I didnt even play it on the last day and opted to play something else..whereas with Anthem, I was playing right until they shut down the servers. Ill still get it bc it looks beautiful and Im intrigued enough to play the full version, but Im just not excited for it.
  13. It’s alright. The Gewher 43 and Turner are better.
  14. I jumped in BFV today just to unlock the MMG. Gotta at least have the guns Incase they fix this game.
  15. Saw this on slickdeals. 33 bux for deluxe version. Xbox only. https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/games/battlefield-5-deluxe-edition-xbox-one-cd-key
  16. It said all levels were normalized...but some of these dudes were running around with blues and purples. So far, I haven’t gotten anything above geeen.
  17. Anyone try the 4v4 PVP? No idea wtf was going on in there, but I was getting insta killed. The few times I was able to actually shoot at someone, i did basically no damage. I couldn’t even knock their armor down 1/2way. They would turn around and instantly kill me.
  18. It was good seeing new enemy types, but there was nothing different about the way you needed to kill them. Just another bullet sponge.
  19. I’m done with BFV. Haven’t played in a week. Been playing BF1 again between anthem and division betas. for the entire time I’m playing BF1, I’m just have a blast. Even when i have a few deaths in a row I feel like i at least know what I did wrong. Go go back to BFV tonight and it’s instant frustration. Can’t see enemies unless I’m using a scope. Even then It’s tough to tell what I’m looking at. So I’m just firing on muzzle flash....but camping MMG =Insta death. Seriously, fuck this game. I can’t belive I put so much time in torturing myself. other than spotting there isn’t a single aspect of BFV i like over BF1. It’s by far the worst BF. I really hope it dies a quick death (which seems to be the case) and they can get back to making a good game.
  20. Just did the endgame content and.....meh. It believe it’s the same mission as one of the 2 you can play in the beta, but they open up another area. They add some additional enemy types too. But it’s just boring. Wave after wave of bullet sponges and really no interesting mechanics in the entire mission. It feels like every D1 mission. There’s nothing new other than the specialization...which really wasn’t amazing. While I think it’s good to stick with the same formula, this feels more like an expansion than a full game.
  21. Anyone play the beta? I put some time in and my high-level impression is that its more of the same. They give you 2 main story missions, 4-5 side missions and a dark zone mission. There is also some random stuff you can do in the open world. I completed the story missions and some control points. I havent tried the side missions or the dark zone yet. As for the story missions, they feel exactly like D1 - and they ultimately play the same purpose - to restart/recover stuff you need to get the base of operations back to full capacity. I mean, its literally the same. Im surprised they went this route. I feel like this is going to turn off players. There are settlements now that you can visit which are similar to the base of operations where you need to get them to full capacity. Not sure if this will be optional or required in the main game. As for the open world, it looks, feels and interacts the same. You still find crates/backpacks to loot for mats and supplies. One new thing is "control points" where an enemy faction holds down a spot and you have to push them out. Then they come back and try to retake it. Culminates in a boss fight. Almost feels like those large roaming groups in the dark zone from D1 that had a yellow-bar boss. Gear/Mods/ Skills - all are either exactly the same or very similar to D1. Tough to say how the loot will play out. What turned me off to D1 was they just couldnt figure out what direction to go with loot drops. There was a point where you would run a mission and get 20+ exotic or legendary drops. It took away the thrill of the hunt and just felt like you would spend more time going through the drops to try and min/max. In loot games, when you get an exotic or legendary drop, it needs to feel special. and it needs to feel like before you even look at it, you know its going to be awesome. overall - I would say its good. If Anthem is a flop then this will be a predictable backup. We will have a month with Anthem to make that determination. EDIT: Also, I read that tomorrow they are adding a piece of end-game content. either a full endgame mission with a high-level character or just a piece of one. So that will really be interesting to see wheat theybe done with The Division's endgame.
