@PrimalxConvoy Pokémon Go is still popular with the masses. Lots of short articles about it brings in advertising revenue. They need this to be able to pay writers to create the articles you want to read.

Essentially this article was not written directly for you but even though you do not realise it, this article does benefit you.

Nintendo confirms Switch launch lineup of games

PazJohnMitch

1 year ago

£280 + £60 Zelda is a bit steep for me at launch.

Although by Christmas there will be RiME, Disgaea 5 and Mario too. Therefore I might be interested then. (Assuming Nintendo drop the base price a little or bundle Mario and / or Zelda).

Online strategy is awful. Not sure of the price though. No way they can charge the £40+ Sony or MS charge. However if it is only a £10 yearly subscription it might be ok.

@FortysixterUK Some of the Weekly Crucible bounties do work even though Bungie says they do not. (Not all but I completed 2 or 3 of them in private this week). The do 5 matches as a fire team for instance definitely works in private.

Short answer is not win a match type bounty but most others do work.

@Kuma You can complete bounties in private that require killing opponents in specific manner (Eg throwing knife or super).

Note the imprecation quest does not work though.

You can also complete the as a fire team ones and objective based ones like capturing B first in Control or earning 1500 points.

You cannot however complete the ones for winning a game type as these specify that they must be done in a playlist.

It is. It is on the yellow thing on the main page.

When you click on it it says something like prerequisites not met and prompts you to buy the DLC from the shop. However at the bottom of the screen it says push square for preview video. (This works).

Bungie talks Destiny: Rise of Iron's future events, wolves and raid

PazJohnMitch

2 years ago

Have any of the people asking for matchmade Raids ever done a co-operative puzzle game where the second person just does not listen? Infuriating isn't it? Now imagine a puzzle that requires 6 people to be synchronised and they are not communicating. It is not going to work.

Joining a Clan is not difficult. I joined an EG PS4 one and have raided regularly with people in it for 2 years. Lots of people here on Xbox use the 100 and that sounds pretty simple too.

Not sure why either option is too daunting for some. And if it is too scary then what are the chances of you talking to a complete random in a matchmade raid? If that is zero then a matchmade raid is not going to help you and it will be a horrible experience. Raids are not big strikes, they are puzzles first, shooting things second.

It would also descriminate against people with dodgy internet connections. (Or if not people would just quit by resetting their routers).

@saulxtigh

Raids can take a number of nights to finish when they are just released and people are underpowered and have not figured the mechanics out. What you describe would descriminate against core players as well as rage quitters.

Also people will swap out characters to get checkpoints. For instance on the Oryx challenge week we would swap characters at the sisters to get a checkpoint on each character on Tuesday. These checkpoints would then be spread across the clan to maximise the number of members that could complete the challenge.

The Raids will be unworkable without people that use mics to communicate. At the moment the Internet opinion is Bungie are bastards that keep the best content locked away from most players. Whereas if there was matchmaking the people doing the matchmaking Raids will have horrible experiences and would most likely start complaining that the Raids are shit.

Bungie would rather be seen as horrible people that have created something great than have their crowning achievements rubbished by people that did not give them a chance.

So you do not value the content at £30. Fair enough play something else instead. No need to complain about It. I like Destiny however therefore I have paid the £25 it is on PSN.

I do not consider a Justin Beiber concert to be worth £80 so I will never go and watch him live and neither will I moan about how ludicrously over priced his concerts are. I might however consider Metallica worth that price...

And you can still play everything from the first year now.

Every mission, strike, raid and crucible arena from year 1 is still available to you.

The way they are dressed up may have changed. The crucible options for year 1 are now in a sub folder off the main page instead of the default option and you can no longer do a Nightfall version of a strike. But you can still do the strike.

I fail to see how you are been penalised against unless you were expecting to get TTK for free too?

I am sorry that £30 is beyond your means. I am sure if you wait long enough the price will fall and you too we be able to enjoy the game.

The people that can however afford the asking price should not be penalised against because of your financial difficulties.

@GamesConnoisseur TTK improved the game a lot from the base game.

It has not changed much since then. The recent free expansion was nice but inessential. (It did improve the way loot drops though).

Idea of getting store credit for having a license removed seems reasonable.

Generally I only buy download versions of games that I intend to keep forever. For games I intend to play and then sell/trade I will buy the physical version as I can get more in a trade.

10% does not seem enough to compete with CeX. (Although digital games are guaranteed to be pube free).

Microsoft GDC party criticised for exotic dancers, Phil Spencer apologises

PazJohnMitch

2 years ago

@Hxy3000 People are not offended because women are professional dancers. People are offended because professional dancers were hired for a corporate party.

I will try and explain this a different way. Would it be appropriate to hire those dancers for the following events:

Childs birthday party
Your parent's Anniversary
Office Christmas Party
Political summit
Corporate Event
Business Meeting
1st date
A mates 18th birthday
Rock concert
Stag / Hen do
Porn awards ceremony

By the bottom of that list you can easily say that exotic dancers are appropriate. At the start you should be saying they are highly inappropriate. (And as far as I am concerned they are still inappropriate for the majority of the middle ones too).
