If you want to make it in any way comparable to Sparrow Racing League, I got three 320 helmets and any number of 310+ so I could infuse my favourites up to 320. If I'm putting in as much time as I did with SRL I'd expect more than just one 320 ghost shell.

The Last of Us, Until Dawn are BOGOF on PSN

patch

2 years ago

You have to bear in mind the store is Europe wide, so the pricing policy is the same. It may be more expensive in the UK than buying physical from Amazon et al. but in Spain, Italy, Netherlands etc. it's more likely less expensive. Amazon.es lists The Last of Us and Until Dawn for 49 each so you'd save around 50 by getting them from the store in this deal.

I've seen enough bitching that EuroGamer are too UK centric, seems we all forget about the rest of Europe as well...

I am the only person in this office who doesn't play Destiny

patch

2 years ago

My name's Patch and I'm a Destiny addict. I don't know when it started, I downloaded the Beta they gave out, a free sample to get you hooked, you know? At first it was just recreational; sure it looked all shiny and the gunplay was good, but I could give it up any time I wanted. Then came day 1. Small price to pay I thought, only 40 for a fix as good as I'd get from Shadow of Mordor or Plants vs Zombies. How wrong I was... this was just the beginning. The cravings started to kick in; just another 5 minutes of helium coil farming, one more bounty, another look on Reddit for new cheeses, one more legendary engram that won't turn blue this time.

I started to spend less time with my family, missed friends' birthdays, woke up tired after late night Crota sessions. My work started to suffer (watching Crota solo efforts on youtube was slowing down the network apparently); old friends who didn't know what the vault of glass was tried to convince me to play Metal Gear but it was no good, I was lost.

It's been 11 hours since I last took down a cursed thrall and my palms are starting to sweat already. As I type this I'm hammering refresh on PlanetDestiny to find out where Xur will be when I get home in 7 hours 43 minutes.

It's obvious only now as I read Christian's article that from the outside my life is a hollow shell filled with engrams and thralls, glimmer and thousand yard stares but you know what? It won't change me, I'm too far gone... pass me my Ace of Spades, my Baron's Ambition. I'll strap on my Helm of Saint 14 and go back into the fray.

My name's Patch and I'm a Destiny addict... and I'm f*cking loving it :)

Official PS4 In-ear Stereo Headset out December for 78/€90

patch

Wow, as someone who's been in the market for active noise cancelling headphones for a while, I'm surprised by these comments. If they were just random Sony branded headphones then sub 10 would be expected, but these are ACTIVE noise cancelling headphones with a 15 hour battery life. Getting them for around 78 is not that big a surprise.

Whatever you do, don't go near the Bose web site, seeing their in-ear active noise cancelling headphones for 260 will make your head explode :P

This ambitious live action Metroid fan film is worth watching

patch

3 years ago

@TagemandBagem

A fan film is something made by a fan purely out of their love for whatever it is they're doing.
I'd argue the definition of a fan film is one made by fans rather than the copyright holders or creators. Just because the fans in this case are professionals doesn't mean jack. If they were seeking to make a profit out of the film (they expressly state it's NOT for profit) then it's legally shaky ground. All they'll get from it is publicity for their company, which may or may not be worth the cost and efforts they put in to making it.

They'd better have got the timing right because it's perfectly reasonable to take down an ultra every minute or so if you're running Court of Oryx with a fireteam.

Destiny: The Taken King review

patch

3 years ago

Yesterday's daily mission is a good example of the extra effort Bungie have put in to TTK. It takes a while to explain, so bear with me.

Blackhammer is a legendary sniper rifle you can get from the Crota raid, but it's not been upgraded with The Taken King, leaving it with a low light level and pretty much made it redundant (along with a nerf to it's best perk). You can dismantle it and unlike other guns, you're given a Runestone with a cryptic description and a set of rune markings. In yesterday's daily mission, these cryptic runes pointed the way to an alternate ending to the typical mission, in which if you could clear a (very hard) section within a time limit you received the Black Spindle, an exotic equivalent of Blackhammer with a year 2 light level.

All this is hidden away and if not for someone noticing a door was open, it could have gone un-noticed entirely. It's this level of detail that's made Destiny a different game for me now TTK has come along. Apparently there are lots more secrets to find in the daily missions, perhaps some have already been missed until they come around next time.

You can probably run through the base campaign in 3 to 4 hours if you know what you're doing and just want to get through it. However, there's a lot (lot) more to TTK than just the campaign. With the new strikes, exploration, enemies, forthcoming Raid etc. it'll take a good lot of hours to get the most out of it.

There are some good tips on Reddit, in particular decrypt one engram at a time and have your highest light gear equipped for each engram you decode. What you get is dependent on your light level. I've gone from around 202 to 240 in an hour or so last night through blue engram drops.
