  1. I really don't understand these "unfinished" arguments. It's a racing game and if the core racing mechanic is ready to go then I would rather they get it out there so I can play it. We are living on the cusp of a full digital distribution model where we will see many games evolving post-launch so adding superfluous features like replays can come later. The game looks fantastic to play, is frankly gorgeous to look at, and looks every bit like a launch ready title. I can't wait to try it tomorrow at Evo and then start racing with you chaps next week.
  2. Anyone have any info about the arms/legs Queens Wrath items? I had assumed they might be available at some point before it finished but with only 3 days left its looking unlikely. I have 3 Queens orders waiting there to be claimed for them too but don't see the point as you don't get shards for recycling the duplicates anymore.
  3. The crash or the sinister looking man staring over the barrier at the end?
  4. I'm gonna see how it all pans out on Saturday but may take a few shots/clips if I think they'll come out okay (Rushy has confirmed its fine). I'll caveat that with the distinct possibility that I'm going to be completely distracted by actually playing it.
  5. Just watched the new trailer for the third time. Saying I'm excited about the preview on Saturday doesn't quite cut it. I've pumped a lot of hours into racing this year already when completing all of GT6 except for the (stupidly) long distance trophy. I hope this can deliver the playability and experience I'm hoping for (a socially sprinkled PGR vs FH) to add many more to that tally.
  6. I've got him up to level 7 and have only have had green or blues from him.
  7. Just to update my info... FiveFootNinja | FiveFootNinja | Full game (PS+ upgrade) Anyone know the specifics on how the clubs work yet? Can you be in multiple at once? Can you swap and change clubs as you wish? I'm just thinking that lots of people will be playing it to start with but as some drift away over time you'll want to move to an active club. Also, just an idea, but if you can be in multiple clubs there might be a case for setting up some specific clubs for certain activities/times/play styles (e.g. a 'wednesday night club' for those that generally play then, a 'competition racing club' if there is some sort of club league and a group want to push to move up it, etc...).
  8. I tried an auto rifle for PvP for a couple of games and just couldn't get on with it. I found it encouraged me to run about trying to be Rambo rather than thinking about the situation first and 9/10 I'd get taken out. It seems I'm against the norm here but my perfect setup is scout rifle and shotgun (sometimes swapping for a sniper on open levels). I find it offers decent damage up close and far away. I sometimes get caught out at short-mid range where the rifle is too slow and the shotgun can't really reach but that's when I kick off the golden gun. I think it's all about finding the combination that works for your play style, learning the maps and working with others in your fireteam (either fighting with the main group, flanking if you know the map or going for objectives, etc).
  9. I really like the idea of a call for help button. There has been a few times where I've seen people on my roster in missions by themselves for ages and I've wondered if they wanted a hand or were keen to do it solo. Just having a convoluted way of locking your fireteam from people doesn't really make it clear.
  10. Mr Ben, hope you don't mind me jumping into your Queens Wrath mission to help out this evening. I was just about to do it myself (and the Winter Kell bounty) so it was perfect timing. Apologies, I didn't have my headset handy to say hello.
  11. You don't 'convert'. Basically everyone has a reputation rank with the Vanguard, Crucible, and three faction (and now the Queen). It's just a question of what you do or which items you are wearing which dictates which one it goes onto. i.e. if you have rank 3 FWC you can't then move over to rank 3 Dead Orbit, you just have to wear the Dead Orbit and start gaining rep with them. Quite a useful level 20+ guide here (although it doesn't include all the new Queen content yet)... http://www.gamespot.com/articles/destiny-guide-to-level-20-and-beyond/1100-6422423/
  12. Open up your character profile and hover the cursor over the 'light' stat and it'll pop up a box that will tell you how much you have and give you a completion bar to the next level. I don't think it actually says the target you are aiming for but I'm sure it's something like: Level 21 = 20 light points ish Level 22 = 30 light points ish Level 23 = 45 light points ish Level 24 = 60 light points ish
  13. If you stay neutral you have to build up Vanguard and Crucible rep separately to get the ranks you need to buy things. If you go with a faction it all counts towards the same so in theory you should rank quicker... however I've no idea if the rep amounts are the same across to the board or if the factions require more (which would negate the benefit). The issue you have is if you wait for ages, then decide you want a faction you have to start from zero on their rep. If you've already got a decent way with the Vanguard/Crucible lot then I'd just stick with them to get the equipment access quicker. I went with FWC as soon as I levelled up so I have nearly rank 2 with them and just over 0 with the originals.
  14. She was also in the latest series of 24... spooky.
  15. I have legendary nothing except my primary weapon. I've had 6 legendary engram drops now and I've received a hand cannon, scout rifle and 4 strange coins.
  16. Oh right, nice. Shame it didn't have any 'event' score like you get with the warsats and walkers drops, etc…
  17. I think Bungie have been fiddling to sort 'the cave'. I was just patrolling on earth for a bounty and ended up in that area, three people were there farming so I shot into the cave for two waves on the way through and then all hell broke loose. Hive and Fallen started spawning repeatedly from all the spawn points in the area with a ton of yellow shielded specials (level 18-20 ish). Absolutely epic fight for about 10 minutes. We killed them all and I don't think anyone died but it was a lot of fun. I wonder if this is how they are going to put people off farming? I certainly got no engram drops from the entire thing so I think they have dialled them down as well.
  18. Hey, my Crucible K/D ratio usually hovers around the 1.0 mark so I thought this one was worth a little mention.
  19. I'm pretty satisfied with that if I'm honest.
  20. Thanks Rushy. £42.99 is a little more than I was expecting but I suppose my Amazon pre-order is currently at £49 and when I spoke to someone in Game (for my sins) they said they were expecting it to be £54.99 in store (like Destiny) so in context it's not too bad. As far as I know it's been confirmed now that if you buy the upgrade version and then decided to cancel your PS+ account you would still have full access to the game (originally it was going to operate similar to the instant game collection) so in effect you are buying the retail version digitally.
  21. Not sure about that. I usually cash in multiple bounties (either vanguard or crucible) and have never had one. Maybe you have to be a certain level like with the marks?
  22. As far as I know. Also says it here: http://destiny.wikia.com/wiki/Crucible_Mark
  23. You get 3 crucible marks for a win, 2 for a loss. I think that's for any game mode, however you get a bonus three if you play the daily mode (found on the left hand side of the map, usually flashing)
