I wish Mayhem was always on in Destiny 2, it's the only time the PvP is remotely entertaining. Plus it's fun being a space wizard that electrocutes people and has a lever action rifle

I'm sitting out this season, playing Modern Warfare and Cold War instead. I needed some variety that involved endlessly unlocking poo poo and customizing guns.

Am I missing much?

Dunno, I got back in cause everything else was boring me and the lever action sounded fun.

Basically, this:

I wish the exotic trait wasn't just copy/pasted from Hawkmoon, but oh well

Edit:

The battlegrounds thing is cool and fun, I think that's new this season. They're like strikes, but with more loot and tougher enemies and that's nice

Also the rifle pairs well with my warlock's chest piece that causes explosions on kinetic weapon precision kills, and the re-roll attempt got me the Outlaw perk so precision kills make my reloads faster Just need to get the catalyst, cause wow coming from a catalyst-ed Trinity Ghoul to this has decreased how often I barf laser beams at enemies in a big way

My understanding is a NFT is basically just a way of saying "I own this digital asset" and that being verifiable.

So Micromancer could take a version of the famous picture, turn it into an NFT, and that is the "One true micromancer pic". Anyone else can still have a copy, but there is only one NFT version.

It seems dumb and someone should make a Goatse NFT.

It is insightful, funny, and never so wordy that you get derailed from whatever you want to focus on. I loved that the game was more than happy to let me decide how much I wanted to roll around in it. I spent too much money in the game buying books and reading them for the internal monologues.

Wasn't it like half the size of the game's install, too? I'm glad they're still updating, most other companies would have cut and run with the money immediately after the backlash.

I was pleasantly surprised by the crafting changes in Cyberpunk, I thought they were going to completely nerf it but they actually made components easier to come by and cheaper from vendors, so when I was building all my endgame gear at level 50 I didn't have to build a couple hundred mods and disassemble them to get the rare and epic components I needed. It also seems that they made crafted items (At least Johnny's set of clothes) always have their maximum potential mod slots which is huge given that before this patch each on would cost about 75k in components to build if you just bought them straight from the vendor.

Now I just need to scour that novel and find out if they made the level 20 pistol tree perk work, because apparently previously it didn't, and an extra 30% armor and damage when you get a critical on an enemy is pretty massive given that I get crits with about 80% of the shots I take and I'm trying for the secret ending that sets all enemies at level 50.

I do wish they'd go back with No Man's Sky and tidy up some of the jankiness from its post-release feature adds. Like there's 2 or 3 base building and unlock systems in parallel that don't entirely play nice together. Also a few different layers of tutorial/story that seem to operate at different paces of each other. It feels like it needs a good effort put into unifying all the content instead of being this weird Groverhaus that had additions from 3 different contractors slapped on.

Also, Horizon Zero Dawn for PC is on sale over at Steam for $30 this weekend.

There is a "next gen" version of the Witcher 3 coming out soon that is supposed to have a bunch of improvements for next gen and higher end hardware. Free for people that already own it on PC, PS4 and Xbawks whatever

Hell the base game maxes out my 2060 Super at 78-80fps in 3440x1440 all ultra which is well below the 144hz my monitor will do, wonder how much of a performance hit will come with the updated version.

Just remembered this sort of re: micromancer's famous photo.

I read years ago that the guy who drew the "troll face" drawing retained some legal place that hits up anyone selling a product with it for a license fee. I was shocked that (according to the story) apparently not only does that work but he actually made a LOT of money by doing so. Obviously very dependant on people launching products with it, but there was a functioning mechanism to extract money from whoever did it.

Just about every title, AAA or otherwise that got a PS5 upgrade has given it for free to someone that already owned a PS4 version that I've seen so far.

This week Epic Games Store will be giving away Tales of the Neonsea: A 16-bit style cyberpunk investigation adventure game?
https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/tales-of-the-neon-sea
I vaguely recall looking at this at some point but anyhow it's free through 4/8/2021 at 8AM in some timezone.

Next week Epic Games Store will be giving away 3 Out of 10: Season 2
A comedy adventure game w/ mini games?... about developers making bad games.
https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/3-out-of-10-season-2
... Which they already give it away for free (Season 1). I guess they're using the slot to promote the reason of Season 2.
It says Free 4/5/2021 through 4/15/2021 though I think it's free even after that so
