    Best airplane table games

    100% thought this was going to be a Wings of Glory thread. I'll see myself out.
  2. Highlighted the important part there. I would take a couple of C-tier story missions and a few new exotics over Black Armory. Every time. Black Armory, day one, asked me to continue grinding out existing weekly content in order to see one or two glorified Horde modes, and some other stuff around the periphery. And as Bungie still - still!! - have not come up with a good answer to get more individual players into accessing new raids, I have no desire to engage in any of this. I was on board with them trying new things. Probably shouldn't have spent money on it before seeing what that looked like exactly, but fuck me I guess. But I really hope they change course at least somewhat for the two remaining releases.
  3. Yeah, fuck all of this. I'll take a Curse of Osiris-level disappointment over whatever the hell this is any day of the week. At least with that, I paid for it, I played it, and moved on with my merry life.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Honestly, I've no idea. I know there are services/companies out there that do that sort of thing - maybe Etsy would be a good starting point? https://www.etsy.com/listing/260191861/custom-painted-miniatures?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_e-toys_and_games-games_and_puzzles-board_games-other&utm_custom1=a2c9d516-457a-478c-aaa9-124d148d7c87&utm_content=go_304504715_51594849071_233324591408_aud-318756285347:pla-314262775187_c__260191861&gclid=Cj0KCQiAsdHhBRCwARIsAAhRhskyvBOX_2eaQeOxpE42TieLQKIanzmr38huJwlEetDmIPRgEgTTP-saAsLuEALw_wcB Of course, the real answer is to pick up a starter Vallejo paint kit and get cracking yourself. I was hopeless at this stuff a year ago - now it's one of the most rewarding and relaxing things I do. You'd be surprised at how good even a simple base coat and a quick wash can look.

    The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    Yeah, they're not bad at all. The only thing that went slightly awry is the basing on those silver knights - I wanted to replicate the Kiln of the First Flame area from the end of DS1, where they're basically standing on a ground made entirely of ash. So I figured i'd just layer on some grey flock using PVA glue until I got to an amount that worked. The theory was sound, and it does look okay, but now I have six minis that are basically leaving little deposits of flock wherever they go. Kind of a pain. The stuff is just too fine to stay completely stuck, so I'd probably do a standard grey base with some minimal coverage on top of that if I did it again.

    It is indeed! I backed it on Kickstarter, and even though I received the base game over a year ago (and all of the expansions since...), I never got round to painting any of it until now. My number one takeaway - when in doubt, drybrush something.

    'twas the season... to paint a bunch of Dark Souls minis! Learned a bunch during the process, and tried some new basing styles out (including treating myself to a few of the GW texture paints). Pretty happy with the results...

    PlayStation VR

    Yeah, finally managed to hook mine up the other night. Wipeout VR is just something else - this thing is in my home. I can play this incredible racing game that feels like it fell out of space and time whenever I want! What a world. Tetris Effect is wonderful, and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is fun as hell, even if we've played it before. Really impressed by Statik too. Definitely worth the $6 or so I spent on it.
  9. So this arrived yesterday. Look out, My name is Byf. It's put together nicely, and only came it at around $15 or so. Lovely.
  10. So doing the offering to the Oracle/audience with Mara Sov gives you a new, dedicated cutscene this week that advances the story. Expect spoilers everywhere for it, so you probably want to go do that quest as soon as possible if you want to see it for yourself. I can't be doing with the grind, so spoilered below. Don't click if you don't want to know, as even the title is mildly spoiler-y.
  11. Yeah, this is... not great. I'm already kind of burned out with doing the same weekly Forsaken stuff to up my light level to 600 - the idea that what little there seems to be in this expansion requires you to get back into that same LL grind, with no immediately 'new' experiences is not a good look at all. And I'm still hunting the Frigid Cocking Jackal. Must have burned at least 500 stems at this point. Almost entirely convinced that the drop is broken.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I'm going with Dead Cells. It has the Jeff Seal of Approval (tm), most of the other staff were pretty positive on it, and Jason could end up being a quiet force in the background, urging it forward when someone else inevitably suggests it. If not that, then Celeste, Tetris or Into the Breach. It's gotta be the year of the indie - can't see any of the AAA stuff this year having enough support. RDR2 is dead in the water, Spider-Man won't have anyone willing to die on the hill for it... Mayyybe God of War, but I still can't see it. I actually think Black Ops 4 will have a strong showing between Jeff, Dan and Abby, but nobody else really beyond that.
  13. That's fine. This is all fine. I didn't want to play any other games anyway. It's fine.
  14. Yeah, I've been doing one per day. About all my psyche can handle at this point. Unfortunately neither my Hunter nor Warlock have done anything past D2 base game completion, so I don't really have any other options apart from continuing to pull the RNG lever with my Titan. Well, I mean, I could abandon this madness completely and just stop trying, but obviously that's not going to happen.
