So Bungie gave me a few extra beta keys, unfortunately none of my personal friends have PS4s... So I'm giving them to the GB community, I'm leaving out a number (1-9) on each key. First come-first serve, enjoy :)!

Also if you manage to get one of the keys, post here so people know when the keys are gone and don't waste time trying for nothing.

Hey guys just so you guys know my main PC (writing this on my macbook) has been compromised by either a trojan or an annoying piece of malware, I'm not sure. It doesn't look like so far *crosses fingers* that any of my accounts have actually been touched. Either way I'm not risking using my main PC till I can get this rectified.

What this will entail is a new hybrid drive to replace my current HDD, and a complete reinstall of windows 7. I ran Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and Super Anti Spyware a number of times after the first incident. I say incident because on one hand it looked like an attack (someone typing into my Chrome omnibar) but it could also be a piece of malware that triggers in Chrome since I've only noticed this behaviour in Chrome. My mouse never moved on its own, at least not that I noticed anyways. Anyways the first run of Malwarebytes found 3 objects which I deleted. Every scan after that came up clean so I thought I was all good, but then I got attacked again at around 1am EST last night. The odd thing is these attacks or whatever happened between 1 and 2 am each time. I havent re hooked up my PC to the web since the 2nd incident just in case and I'm not going to till I get it reformatted.

Regardless it will take a least a week for me to get the new drive and set up my PC again, going to wipe the old drive and just use it as extra storage since its still good. Hopefully the infection isn't a rootkit and lodged in the drive's cache.

Anyways long story short I wont be online for at least a week, but please let me know via private message on these forums if you see odd activity coming from my account. If I don't respond to tells, or act erratically, etc. It's probably not me.

Also I did use another device to change my warframe password.

Thanks

That last one is, Christ all mighty. Who would've thought a couple dozen pixels could be so moving.

Good bye Mr. Davis, you are an inspiration to us all.

I can't stop crying.

I know I'm late, been kinda zoning out all day. Let me add this image to the pack, how I feel about the man I didn't really know but we all knew. LOVE, RESPECT, RYAN.

I know I'm a bit late to this thread, but could I get an invite to the clan? Echoes83 in Warframe, I want to try and get more involved with the GB community and Warframe is my current thing so figured I'd start there.

Thank you for all the funny, happy, entertaining moments. You were part of the reason that made following games so much fun. Nothing will ever be the same without his input, his commentary, his laugh. I never knew him personally and barely interacted via the site, but he along with the rest of the Giant Bomb staff and crew are the brightest part of the game industry.

Thank You

@Ravenlight

If Bethesda is using this time to get Dawnguard to run as smoothly as possible on PC/PS3, I'm more okay with the wait. Not totally okay, but more okay.

Thanks xbox chumps for beta testing Dawnguard for us.

I wasn't gonna say anything, but I was thinking the same :P

We'd all like to think that Bethesda is using the time to smooth things out on other platforms. But we know they aren't, otherwise vanilla Skyrim wouldn't be so schizophrenic in the framerate department.

Dawnguard will be rife with Bethesda jank like everything else they release.

Tragic, and upsetting the MS didn't take it more seriously from the start.
