  1. Heavy Rain was a bunch of shallow clichés cribbed from earlier, more original works, that was poorly written. Like the Harry Potter books. The only difference is that I'm not sure if David Cage is a centrist, Tory-enabling, transphobic neoliberal. But I'm happy to concede that he definitely is purely on the strength of his artistic output. You'd like to imagine that anyway, wouldn't you - rather than the opposite? I don't think I could take another Reverse Morrissey at this point in history.
  2. All superhero films. The populace is fascist - and stupid, and consumerist - enough as it is, without being encouraged to buy even dumber fascist-friendly consumable serialisations in lieu of art or human expression. Besides, the best superhero film ever made was made already, over forty years ago: https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/277369-amazon-prime-video/&do=findComment&comment=13290565. And at least that guy could shake a peg or two on the way to his bloodthirsty caste-aligned holy revenge against the criminal classes.
  3. If you want to also fry your brain with a subtitled film - but not necessarily because of the subtitles - watch Superman, which is currently on Amazon Prime. Starring the mighty N T Rama Rao rather than humdrum old Chris Reeve, this 1980 production is Tollywood rather than Bollywood, but has much to commend it. Give it a go - I look forward to many happy hours of discussion of its many amazing set pieces and songs hereafter. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Superman-Taraka-Rama-Rao-Nandamuri/dp/B08XWXTV5B/
  4. If you don't like lots of story in a game, I very much suspect you won't get on with this game. Mind, most of the (best) story bits are in found items - mostly text logs, but sometimes audio and video logs. The best story bits being all the stuff about the old world. There's still a fair few of the old cutscenes in there too though, which isn't very From at all.
  5. Barrier: Auto Unstoppable: Sidearm, Pulse, Fusion Overload: Sword, Bow
  6. Pinnacle cap is up by 10, aye, along with top level activities (Master/GM stuff etc).
  7. Two of them, presumably in seasons 2 and 4. With raids in 1 and 3.
  8. Nope. Our clan doesn't like clans, or being in clans, but also more to the point - you're not restricted to only playing with clan members. So it doesn't really matter whose clan you're in. Also yours has a stupid name. Edit: As mikey said, basically, but with the addition of the stupid name thing.
  9. Fuck me but some of you clan recruiter guys are quite literally shameless And yeah, it has to be King's Fall. I mean, as that immortal line in the Witch Queen preview put it, "You may have heard of her brother... the Taken King?" Nah, never heard of him. Looking forward to buying the $99.99 bundle of deluxe Witch Queen plus this season's dungeon and exotic rocket launcher anyway.
  10. https://www.scotclans.com/scottish-clans/whats-my-clan/what-is-a-clan/
  11. No chance whatsoever. For PvE all that gear is now effectively useless.
  12. Someone who is capable of making an argument would understand why yours is incoherent and ad hominem. You don't. Ok big man facebook-emoji gif lol?
  13. Have you actually played football to a good standard though? If not, shut up. Grate arguement bro
  14. What a ridiculous statement. Have a word with yourself.
  15. Probably not. Moon lost sectors tend to take longer than Europa ones because they're bigger, have more adds, and the boss and some of his underlings are Nightmare enemies and are therefore a lot tankier than Europa ones. Apart from that, it's the same deal. I've done Communion a few times and with it being solar you might want to give a warmind cell build a try (inc Rage of the Warmind), as I find cells help clear out big groups of adds more quickly.
  16. For people who don't want to group up for content and just want the glowy armour, the Solstice ornament set and an extra Celestine set are in the Eververse store, for either bright dust or cold, hard silver.
  17. You can't focus fire on a dreg when you're too busy shooting other people's cells and carrying them somewhere useless though. So it's good that the game supports such diverse playstyles.
  18. Can you define what a 'certain playstyle at lower end content' is, and explain why it translates terribly to higher level content? The only things I can see as an issue are if you've equipped weapons that are no good for content - which you should never do (but oh no, isn't that me complying with the meta?) - or if the WMC mods take up slots that would be better used for other things, usually survivability. But again, you should never do that. And suppressive WMC builds can be more effective than dumping all your slots into, say Charged with Light. Or, like most people, you could just have a mixture of the two. I think there are plenty of builds effective for content, inc high end content, at the moment. There might not be in whatever the current meta is, but in reality there are plenty of options available. WMCs are just one of them.
  19. Indeed. And eso, yes, is a machine from the future, and solo builds like that are invariably not the best (or maybe not needed) for most people. But cells themselves are quite obviously op in most content, and quite obviously helpful in high end stuff (esp the suppressive builds, but even with solar builds why is adding to cc damage a bad thing when you're struggling for cc?). This just seems more about railing at the perceived meta again to me. Meta's there for a reason, and most times I see people playing challenging PvE content, guess what? They play the fucking meta. While cursing it, no doubt. I mean, this whole take is just a troll really. You (mikey) should do a YT Destiny trolling randos channel. It'd probably be a big success (no irony).
  20. Seems like a bit of a 'hot take', that. If you look at what you're saying it doesn't make sense. Sure, anything that can die can die by most means, but if it's pointless using cells then people of the type that you allege just want to come top of the kills leaderboard wouldn't use them. If they're selfish for wanting to get tons of kills maybe they use cells because cells do indeed help them kill more things more quickly - i.e. they're effective. So if you're shooting the cells without mods instead and therefore wasting their potential, you're just slowing the down rate of kills and making the activity take longer. Which seems more 'competitive' than the people who simply might be trying to kill everything as quickly as possible. They're not as effective in higher end content, but they do still have an impact - in raids, for sure, for example. They're also really useful for survival if you go void and use suppression, though admittedly they're not used in this role so often. (I'd use them more for this myself but it comes down a lot to that 'fuck me if I have to bring up yet another set of fucking armour' thing.) But again, guns aren't as effective either. Nothing is, say in GMs, simply because of the crazy relative HP and levels of the enemies. So if just doing damage rather than outright killing makes cells useless, then all your shit is useless as it's all weak compared to how it performs in low-mid level content. I agree about the limitations they place on weapon selection. But more limiting is whatever Bungie decide are the weapons you need to use for champions that season. And there's got to be some sort of sacrifice you make for the additional power they give. Because that power definitely exists, at all levels. Which is why they're due a nerf from Bungie (and, to be fair, probably deserve one).
