Did anyone else play with the beta? It was a ton of fun and it looks like there'll be a lot of content, even just in areas to explore alone. I'm excited for this, it needs to be out already.

I'll be picking it up for PS4. I want it for PC but the guys I'll be playing with are likely getting it for PS for the portability of it, since not everyone's PCs can be moved as easily as mine.

Siege left a bad taste in my mouth, so I'm sort of leery regarding Tom Clancy titles anymore.

Vegas 2 was the last one I really enjoyed.

Played the hell out of both betas, can't wait for the pubbie safari to begin in earnest again next week. Need to murder my daily dose of shitty Chinese gank squads for those DZ dollars. laugh.gif

I really hope they step up the number of things going on in the DZ... It was frustrating wandering around in the most "savage" area of NYC not finding much going on.

I'm excited for the cross-platform stuff scheduled for later this year. I've been saying for years how easy this would be these days since a number of companies are using a secondary in-game login to access their own servers, which completely nullifies any console-level authentication; it's all done server side. This is a progression that just makes sense from that.

Microsoft keep torpedoing that particular boat, maybe they'll finally pull their heads in?

And yeah, there needs to be a lot more NPC encounters in the DZ, the only real threat was the level 5 rogue asshats that kept dropping tons of keys. laugh.gif

They keep trying to, but when multiplayer auth is all server side, the only thing they can really do to stop it is cancel the title on their system or remove Ubisoft's rights to their SDK altogether.

And we all know how that'll go for PR.

This is an inevitability eventually.

Plus, it's actually BETTER for business. I wouldn't own a PS4 right now if cross-platform were a thing. Only reason I picked it up was because I needed to play Destiny with my PS buddies. Every game I own for it, I'd have for XBOne instead. It's their loss that my money goes to Sony on certain titles.

Not to mention now that the Bone's finally getting Rocket League, it's absolutely ridiculous not to have cross-platform play.

Really? Haven't had any real issues so far outside the DZ, and inside the DZ it's your own fault for going into the DZ, so I'm not sure how there's so many people complaining about griefing. Haven't seen anyone standing in doorways like dickheads (which you can move through anyway) or anything like that, only real problem I've had was a stupid bastard running into one of my grenades in the DZ and marking my entire squad rogue. rant.gif censored2.gif chair.gif

As for the game itself, loving it so far, it's basically just a scaled up version of everything I enjoyed from the beta with a couple extra bits stapled on. Gotta get back into the DZ later and try to unlock all the goodies at the merchants.

I haven't had a ton of free time recently, but that which I've had has been spent in-game, hence my not being around the forum.

Lvl 18 right now, just waiting for the servers to go back up from maintenance... Why they choose to do that at midnight when people are playing versus 5AM when the aren't I have no idea.

Can't complain, gives me time to make dinner and everything before the servers go back up. Gotta get up to 23 so I can actually use that 2400-a-shot AK I found. laugh.gif

I get home at 4am usually, so a 5am maintenance time would fuck me over. tongue.gif

BTW you guys and a bunch of youtube and twitch vids got me to buy the Gold Edition.

Hard mode is amazing. Feels well balanced to challenge players without being unfair. That grenade spam though...

God damn, matchmaking is great. I have yet to run into any glory hounds, rambo types, nor afk-ers. Nothing but solid gunners.

Really pleasantly surprised at just how good it is for the missions I did through it, even if one of them was this incredibly loud Japanese dude who apparently didn't know how to enable push-to-talk. Mic spam was kind of annoying, but damn if his pulses weren't useful. laugh.gif

I much prefer making buddies in the DZ, though. Had a group of three last night a couple levels lower than us extracting at the Bryant Park EZ and getting stomped by the named enemies, swooped in like a bunch of M14-wielding, grenade-slinging heroes and helped 'em extract. Ended up running around with them for a while, clearing the subway and hunting down a group of rogues on the library roof. Good times. biggrin.gif

Oh, you're still under 14? Damn.

I'm staying a bee's dick under 30 so that I can farm the 25-29 DZ for a bit, and man oh man, it gets fun as hell up in DZ06. LMB guys with agent abilities (!?) are tough as nails to fight, but goddamn do they drop some good gear. Entire group's stopped picking up anything short of purples. biggrin.gif

My work schedule has me working noon to midnight consistently all week, so I have maybe two hours of free time every day. I just cracked 12 last night. I won't be able to sink my teeth into the game until Friday.

Speaking of the DZ, survived my first bout of manhunt fuckfuck games last night. Murdered a bunch of blokes who tried to steal our extraction (one of our guys was carrying some high-end gear he had to get out, plus it's a dick move to steal slots), cue us holding a rooftop for five minutes against the pubbie hordes with nothing but sidearms, skills and a bunch of grenades. laugh.gif

Every fucking time I call for extraction, the pubs pop out of nowhere and typically shoot me in the face thinking I'm rogue as I do jumping jacks.
