They patched out having to do side quests to level I think about a month ago. Just need to do the main story ones and your class stuff. That's the main thing that inspired me to look at it again. Because I know exactly what you're talking about, I couldn't stand the grind required just to get to the next interesting bit. Really hoping to be able to play it as a singleplayer RPG now.

Which lets face it ... it honestly would have fit better as a single player game .. maybe with co-op doesn't really have the feel of an mmo imo.

I usually am playing with an IRL mate. But sometimes go solo. If I'm solo I'm happy to help you through missions in Warframe.

What gave me the shits was how badly put together the storyline was. I played a smuggler and it was an awesome revenge mission to get your ship back and punish the assholes who stole it, once you get it back it just turns into "hey stranger, go deal with our bullshit problems for no reward".


Notable stupidity:

* capture an entire fleet of merchant freighters and sell them, for $1
* track down a lost Hutt treasure horde, sell it for $1

Once i got my ship back i ceased to give the slightest shit about the universe.

I'm an avid Warframe player, a friend and I play quite a bit and are always willing to party up with anybody needing help or advice. Feel free to add me on steam "BishopOz" or in-game aswell. Have all frames but Atlas and can help with builds etc. if you'd like :)

Also have a fully researched dojo if you ever need to grab something from the labs.

Loving the new update, it's such a cool game.

Only if it's on PS4 which has the largest player base. PC servers have died on its ass.

So on top of The Old Republic cutting out the need to do pretty much any side quest grind, there's currently double xp until January 1 as well. I got to level 13 in less than 3 hours (including a fair chunk of time spent relearning how to play a MMO) tonight.

I'm gaining new skills much faster than I can work out what to do with them. The grind is so far removed atm that it's gone past 0 and turned into some kind of negative grind where they throw more xp at you than you can handle. This is insane for a MMO, I don't understand what's going on.

So Total Annihilation is now on Steam, which is awesome. The only thing that stops me purchasing it immediately is that I've already owned it on GOG for many years. I'll probably get it eventually anyway though; it's pretty cheap (less than 4USD atm).

Already have most of the stuff in the Square Enix holiday box this year :(. Speaking of if anyone wants a key for FFXIV: A Realm Reborn (comes with 30 days game time I think) PM me.

(is it just me or does this guy look smug as all fuck? :lol: )

Re-downloaded Tribes Ascend and had a quick match. It's definitely still damn fun jet packing and skiing around the place while chasing down flags.

Given that it is free and has Australian servers setup to play on, maybe there will be a group of people here keen to play a few matches at some point? (I'm thinking those playing UT2004 etc will likely have some interest in Tribes). Aussies servers were dead quiet at this point, and the US weren't much better, but I got into a game where it was just 2v2 and later became 3v3 and it was still pretty damn fun!

Kids have a remarkable ability to forage for food if you starve them long enough! Game on! :D

Spent the afternoon playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam. SO MUCH FUN! There was really only one populated server, and I had to play with a ping of 250, but it was totally worth it. Still love the atmosphere that the backing music gives to the game. Oh, and flame throwers! (even if I hardly ever got kills with it, I still loved being that guy with one screw loose charging around leaving a trail of fire)

Yeah, I need a crash course in how to read the GUI.

Gonna get some tutoring from my bro who's got a good grasp of the current state of the game and servers so he'll give me the low down on how to unlock guns/upgrades faster. Will post something on the PC Gaming forum.

Yes, unless you get it on PS4, the game on PC isn't worth more than $20 IMHO... there are better value games on Origin to get.

BF4 Premium Edition is $20 atm if you don't have it... the player base there is bigger than Battlefront.

I wouldn't focus too much on unlocking guns in Bf4, it'll happen organically, and later guns in a lot of cases aren't actually better, just different. (One of my favourite guns, and the first I hit 1000 kills with is the starting Assault rifle).

As for what to do in a map, if you're playing conquest, run toward the points (A, B & C etc) that are red and try to make them blue, if you're playing rush and the points are blue defend them, if they're red run toward them and hold down E on it if you get to it. I'M HALPING!

But really any specific questions I can answer whatever, I've put a...few....hours into BF4

Unless you want to dedicate hundreds, possibly thousands of hours, trying to unlock all the guns, attachments etc. then just focus on a few good guns you like the feel of. Personally I went for the approach of focussing on the ''main issue battle rifle" for each country, and changed my loadout accordingly. Felt more fun to me that way.

Eh I haven't enjoyed a battlefield since BF2 ... The heavier the emphasis on unlocks became the more i began to dislike the games.

You might not like battlefront then. The whole game is based on unlocks since there are no classes. At least with bf4 you have classes and most unlocks just help you specialise. In battlefront, you need to unlock a decent potion of star cards for some variety.

You don't need to unlock any weapons in BF4 if you don't want. The base weapons are good enough.
