    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 ...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic End game tips. on the Destiny board

    @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.

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Wiki Data Visualisation. on the Off-Topic board

    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...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Will the moral panics over video games die down?. on the General Discussion board

    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...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Bombin' the A.M. With Scoops and the Wolf: 09/05/2014. on the Gods Will Be Watching board

    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...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Forza 5 for free this week-end...or not?. on the Xbox One board

    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 >.<

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Do you listen to bombcast ads?. on the Bombcast board

    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...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Need some monitor advice: 1440p @60hz or 1080p @144hz?. on the PC board

    @mb said: @rm082e said: If you're not looking to become a high level FPS player, then 144Hz is just a visual effect. The added sensory input data isn't going to make any game better (that isn't twitc...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Windows Won't Update. on the Off-Topic board

    It might be trying to download the recent bad update that Microsoft pulled because it was blue-screening machines. See here or here. I'd hold off on windows 7 updates until there's definitive word tha...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic Polygon Article - The problem with Battlefield Hardline. on the General Discussion board

    The fact that DICE just re-skinned Battlefield 4 with cops and people didn't immediately say "wtf that's just military combat -- not cops and robbers," is sort of telling about how police are viewed t...

  • CatsAkimbo posted a message in the forum topic No "The Sims 4" reviews allowed until AFTER release.. on the The Sims 4 board

    Are they really pushing the pre-order thing on the Sims 4? If so, that doesn't look very good. Otherwise it's not necessarily a big deal?
