I also just got to 20, so far I've had more trouble staying connected then actually playing. I've just started the Mars Missions ( :P )  but I keep loosing connection so I dunno whats up with that. Its kinda annoying cos I seem to lose all my Dead Orbit rep when it disconnects and reconnects, and I don't think thats meant to happen but meh.

I don't like Megalutions. I think they are the worst thing to happen in Pokemon.


I don't like the Megalutions because their designs are, for the most part, very complicated which in my opinion goes against Pokemon's main artstyle - there are some exceptions (Mawile, Audino, Lopunny, and of course dat Absol) which look like actual pokemon but the others seem a little over the top compared to their pre-Mega designs. All for the inability to use items and a stat boost, often a type change and an ability change too. Okay, sure, whatever, but I still think it's stupid.



Mawile, Kankhaskan, Pincer, Heracross, ect most certainly appreciate the evolutions, but I think they would have maybe been better served with just regular evolutions. 


- also why is Megabsol not Dark/Flying? Those wings ~~~

Me and my two buddies just spend three hours grinding E Gate Survival and now the lot of us are stocking up Oxium. Our Dojo has a room ready for the Tenno lab and the lot of us are using the affinity boosters to grind up new gear..


All we need to do is wait for the next update, when we will actually be able to do stuff with our supplies of Oxium.

Huzzah! Another SSLFer plays Warframe! I must ask you sire, what is your username in-game? Wow, you've been playing since Volt was a starter? I started playing around 6 months ago, give or take a few days, somewhere in U9. Anyway, how the heck did you survive a Vermillion antitoxin? Me and my friend can barely survive a Amethyst antitoxin, especially when your framerate drops to 5 when 100+ enemies spawn....Anyway, you lucky son of a biscuit you.


I haven't actually been playing that long - I got it when the game launched on Steam, but me and my friends stopped playing to play other things. So when we got back into it last month, with all the new updates, we were kinda lost but we had a head start I guess.


We had a random join our game when we did Vermillion, so four people with level 30 frames (Rhino, Rhino, Volt and Valkyr) and high level guns. One of my friends sat on top of a rock to snipe (waste of a rhino suit if you ask me but whatever) and the other ran around with Iron Skin and Rhino Stomp. Because two people had Energy Siphon, we were getting tons of energy regen so I was basically spamming Overload and Shock, and it was pretty much a matter of 'shield the terminal with your body and keep shooting'


I'm not sure about the Valkyr, but myself and one of the rhinos had 750 shields and the other rhino had 1100, so meh.


Now all we have to do is wait two weeks for the Cicero Crisis to end so we get our Dual Wraith Vipers.


Also, my IGN is Absoul

EDIT: Trinity is now at Phobos, you can obtain her from the dual boss battle where you fight Captain Vor and Lt. Lech Kril. So, getting the Miter and Twin Gremlins harder to obtain and Trinity at the same time, that's nine, NINE BPs that can drop from Illiad, Phobos. That Miter requires 4 BPs to build, Twin Gremlins only one, and Trinity, three. I feel bad for those who want Miter, Twin Gremlins, and/or Trinity. Drop rates must be low...


Luckily for me, about two days before the update me and my two space ninja buddies did about thirty Vay Hek runs to get some mats, and as a result I got the last two parts of Trinity. It's building now, although I'm not going to use it for a while because I want to max up my current weapons first.


And then, once I max out my current weapons, I've got a viper, the twin wraith vipers (yay Vermilllion anti-toxin) when they arrive, the boltor, and the ignis. Not getting a new melee because the Orthos is that awesome but I'm planning on having a weapon for each enemy type - namely, my current Paris/Lex are for Corpus, Boltor/Lex will be for Grineer and Ignis/DWV for Infected.


Not that I need a specific weapons set for Corpus because I started the game when Volt was a starter 'frame, and now it's a level 30 'frame specializing in power damage :P


I'd talk more, but I think I'm gunna go play Warframe

First thing that I'll do with all of those boxes is flip the cover so it's the right way round.

Halo Wars is so much fun. I never was much good at it (Brute Chieftan and no other units besides Snipers :P) but I did love turtling behind a couple of my friends and going all twin Scarabs on the enemy. That plus those shield sentinels you can get on that one map = invincible Scarabs. Shrugging off the fully upgraded MAC blast ability with 70% or so health left. And then being repaired by a few engineers.


God that game was amazing. Might go play that later.

I think the big difference between ODST and the other games was that with the exception of the levels Exodus and (kind of) New Alexandria in Reach, we've never explored a human urban environment in the Halo games. And even though New Alexandria and New Mombasa are fairly similar in concept, New Alexandria's stark white walls, combined with the actual light of daytime, make it look vastly different to New Mombasa, which has darker coloured building and is (at least for Mombasa Streets) shrouded in night. Plus, in New Alexandria, players explore the upper levels of a sci-fi metropolis, whereas in New Mombasa, many of the buildings look similar to things we could build right now, in 2013. And that's nice because a city on Earth is going to have a different style to any built anywhere else.

Personally I thought that the only reason ODST seemed 'different' from the other Halo games is because of the atmosphere. In the other games, you're this unstoppable half human half tank who runs around shrugging off plasma like a pro (unless you play on Legendary, like a pro). In ODST everything seemed a bit darker and more evil to me. Although I might just be going insane.

Anyway that's my two cents.

Depends what difficulty you're on.

Legendary. Having beaten Reach and ODST on Legendary Co-op and Reach solo, Legendary is kinda like Normal for me now. Which makes Heroic easy and the lower difficulties a one sided slaughter of the poor Unggoy. So anyway I tried The Ark again solo...

I hate sniper missions

Why is there a Hammer but not the Brute Shot?
I so very much want the Brute Shot back. Why does no one at 343 seem to care about it?

I want the option to customise my weapons. What are the chances that a wood elf from Valenwood (sp?), a smith from Riften and a bandit near Solitude all make Iron Swords which look EXACTLY THE SAME.

Well the only difference in gameplay between Anniversary(360) and original Combat Evolved(original xbox) is Anniversary has better graphics and active multiplayer.

And since when do mods threaten people?? When I joined mods didn't make their own sets of rules.

Ah but this is Red Base, Zero is not the mod so much as he is the Supreme Overlord (praise him!)

Anyway, yeah, Dood, the only big differences are the graphics and the multiplayer. Now, instead of being full of elitist snobs and noobs, it's almost entirely balanced between noobs, casuals, gamers and pros. Which is good, of course.

But also the Scorpion in HCE:A has a machine gun as the secondary and it doesn't require 2 players to use properly so that is why CE (and by extention, CEA Campaign) is forever better then Reach. :D

It doesn't matter where they are on the battlefield - When the plasma start's a-fallin, nowhere's safe.

Not that anywhere the Covenant are is particularly safe anyway.

Well lydia is died now as well. Real pain in the butt, I havn't got a pack hourse now...

Joined the empire and just completed the battle for white run. Not really what I was expecting I just stood in front of the gates and shot the stormcoats as they ran through in a line. 30 guys is really pushing it if your trying to overrun a walled town.

Unless you have Dovahkiin.

Honestly I don't see why they bother. If I was Tullius and someone said to me "Hey, sir, the Dragonborn, that awesome Nordic hero dude, joined the Stormcloaks"
I would say "Right, pack up. We're going back to Cyrodil"
Not "Thats ok, even with the Dragonborn they will totally never take Whiterun"

It's a wonder the Imperials survived the war with the Elves, really.

Minor coarse language

This one's better.
