    Whenever I sit down and ty to go through every combo a character has, it always takes me way over an hour just to get through it because I'm so bad at inputting them, and when I do pull it off, it ju...

    This was fantastic, thanks for making great videos like this!

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic The loot patch is live!. on the Destiny board

    Bastions ok, but it felt like I was getting it 50% of the time. I had a streak of 4 Bastion maps in a row once, so it's great news that it's getting less frequent!

    Sorry for your loss, Jeff. My thoughts are with you.

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Destiny Exploits?. on the Destiny board

    Farming like this isn't a viable way to get the top-end stuff, so I don't think Bungie is in the hugest rush to fix it. At the rate you get purples and exotics from engrams, you're better off getting ...

    @pyrodactyl said: The best farming spot in the game is in the nexus strike. I think the drop rate is better if you're in a higher level playlist so you should aim for farming at lvl 24. Just before t...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Mutual destruction in console shooters.. on the General Discussion board

    I don't think it's necessarily a console-specific issue, and it's something that multiplayer Bungie games have suffered since at least Halo 3. Just making wild assumptions here, but it's probably just...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Should Supers Be Removed from the Crucible. on the Destiny board

    I'd be ok with a playlist or two that remove all abilities except grenade/double-jump, but I just get the feeling it'd be pretty bland and too similar to other games. The supers are pretty much COD ki...

    The Wirecutter is always a good source for these situations, though I wouldn't trust their opinion on TVs after their terrible panasonic plasma recommendation a while back.

    This thing's cool, nice job. I'm using d3.js a lot right now for work -- it can be pretty neat. Just taking a quick glance, I'm not sure why it appears to slow down with a bunch of nodes -- d3 can usu...

    Did something happen recently that brought this on? If anything, I think it's gotten a lot better over the last ~10+ years. But maybe that's just because I haven't run into anyone vehemently agains...

    I looked up what was going on last week, but I don't really use twitter or visit other gaming websites, so I didn't get what the podcast was talking about this week. If it actually is worse than what...

    Yeah, I installed it last night through the xbox -- was on the very first page of tiles. 40gb for just a weekend is kinda crazy though >.<

    I'm so glad they offer premium so that I don't feel guilty about never seeing or hearing an ad on here. I'd much rather support them directly with a little money than indirectly through ads, even if...
