    Beach volleyball, playing with computers, and new tech toys. I enjoy all kinds of video games, but action RPG and FPS would be near the top of the list, while music and RTS would be near the bottom.

  1. Ended up getting a free copy of God of War Ragnorok (from airmiles).  Should be here in the next few weeks.  May start it up when I am done with the Witcher 3, but it was high on my list of games I was interested in anyway, I really enjoyed the first of the reboots.

  2. As someone who has never played any Disgaea game, would it be ok to start with Disgaea 5 (the one that is currently included with plus extra)?

      Let me know how you like it. I have been looking at this series for the past couple weeks and wondering if I would enjoy it.

      @DaivRules Thanks, that makes sense.

       

      @Squirlruler I am still early on in Witcher 3, not planning on starting this any time soon.  Just saw it on the list of games, and was curious, because it has been in the back of my mind for a while now.  I will let you know when/if I start it.

      Yeah. 

       

      People have preferences for the various Disgaeas. They all seem exactly the same to me, though (that's not a bad thing, since I like them). But maybe 5 is one the breaks the mold (I stopped at 4).

  3. Mrs Bee and I made some slight alterations to the ruleset for this year, and made it a little competition between ourselves. For me to fill a box, I require a platinum trophy (or 100%). For her, she gets to fill a box if she finishes the story (like normal), but if she gets the platinum she can fill in a second box for free. these changes make her card not really eligible for submission here, but I am going to post our progress anyway. (I also allowed her to start just over a week early, as she was off work and had some extra time). Here are our cards as they stand currently: Mrs Bee - Bee -
  4. No. They are not a continuous story, in fact they have very little if anything to do with one another. You can start with any game you choose.
  5. Hit Ctrl-F5 or clear your browser cache. I had the same issue, and that fixed it. Here is my card:
  6. Mrs Bee and I are going to try this year. Here are our cards. Mrs Bee: Bee We spent some time last night picking games that would fit, and have some pretty good ideas for many of them. It should be an interesting year.
  7. I want to like Destiny 2.  I mean, I do enjoy the idea of the game, but it feels like an obligation rather than a choice to login each week and grind out all your bounties and pinnacles.  On top of that, with it really only being Mrs Bee and I who are playing regularly, we can't reliably do the more difficult content, and will struggle to get groups to play the raids.  As much as it makes me sad, I think we need to move on from it to other things.

      I was the same with the first one. Its feels nice to play but it just puts up roadblocks everywhere. You can't raid without good gear and you can't get good gear without raiding. You try raiding and you are shunned by the community because you've never done the raid before so as it turns out you can't raid without raiding either??

       

      Fortunately I came across a group that ran groups with newbies. One guy in particular seemed to get his enjoyment from it by providing full tutorial commentary as we played. We flawlessly ran crota on our second attempt, so groups do exist but it can be hard to find them.

       

      I didn't bother playing Destiny 2 for this reason which is a shame

      I felt the same way about the first game. I really wanted to like Destiny but it got so boring, repetitive and annoying after a while, I gave up playing and uninstalled it. The Raids were the final nail in the coffin, because they are such a PITA to do reliably without something going wrong and screwing you over so you have to keep redoing the same section over and over again until it goes your way :(.

      Sir Bee - I tried to join you a few times but we are not online at the same time, but I do my best to contribute to the clan XP. ;)

       

      See you out there fellow Guardian.

  8. I currently have a PS plus essential subscription.  It is set to expire in March of 2023. I was considering updating to PS plus Extra with the current 25% off the first year.  When I go to the store, they offer me 25% off remaining 120 days, but then charge me full price in March.  Is there any way for me to take advantage of this discount for a full year on the Extra subscription?

      I guess that would work, but don’t be mad at me if it doesn’t. :P

      worst case, I got 25% off my essential subscription I was going to pay for anyway.  It would still be a good deal.

      it should work normally once you upgrade to the next tier. then you upgrade from that tier for another year. ps extra is very nice only need to complete 4 games to break even.

  9. Now that you mention it, I guess that does make sense. Still don't have to like it ...
  10. I appreciate the thorough explanation. I wonder if Bungie made the season pass and dungeon keys purchasable with Silver for that reason. It sucks, but if we are still playing come Lightfall, maybe we just bight the bullet and pre-order the full annual pass. Will have to see what the rest of season 18 and 19 bring.
  11. Hmm, that sucks. Thanks for the answer. I guess that means no season passes or extra dungeons for us. Oh well, I could rest easy knowing we saved that money. EDIT: Not that I am doubting you, but I read the text at the bottom of the page when trying to buy one of the DLC packs, and it has the same warning as on the season pass silver pack (https://store.playstation.com/en-ca/product/UP0002-CUSA05042_00-D2S18BDL00000001). That text reading "One-time license fee for play on account’s designated primary PS4™ system and other PS4™ systems when signed in with that account." If i were to take that at its word, gamesharing should not work at all. I wish that it was made more clear as to how exactly this works.
  12. Mrs. Bee and I have gotten back into Destiny 2 and we ended up buying the Legacy DLC and the base Witch Queen DLC. This worked like all other DLC we have encountered, I could buy it under my account, download it to the PS5 I play on, and then also download it to the PS4 she plays on as it is set to my main system. It took a re-download of the main game on her system to recognize the DLC, but it has been working since. We are now considering getting the Witch Queen dungeon, or buying a season pass. My question is this. Will that same process work when buying Silver (the in game currency) from the PS store? IE. I buy a pack of 1000 silver on my account, and then download it to both my PS5 and her PS4 so we can both purchase the season pass or dungeon? For reference, I do not play on my account on a PS4, so I believe this would be the same situation if I was on a PS5 and a PS4 myself. If that does not work, is there a way to make it work without needing to buy double the silver?
  13. Looking for some advice.  As someone who has not touched Destiny 2 since before Bungie's breakup, but is considering getting back into it, is there anything I should know?  What would I need / be recommended to buy?  What can I expect? Is it mostly playable if the only reliable players I have to play with would be me and Mrs Bee?  Any input would be appreciated. 

  14. I have had Void TRRLM on my wish list pretty much since it came out (the ++ ps5 version is there now) and this is the first time I have seen it on sale (60% off).  Wanted to know if anyone has played it, and what there thoughts were.  Is it worth the time and money?

  15. It is kind of difficult to make that judgement call before a product even exists. I have owned and played every other mainline FF game that has trophies, and played from 6 onward originally (own most of them as well), so it is safe to say that I have enjoyed the series in the past. That being said, I am not convinced that SquareEnix won't ruin something about this game because they got sidetracked on the failing NFT market, or decided to create a whole microtransaction cosmetic store. In a perfect world, I would buy this game in a heartbeat, but over my lifetime I have learned we do not live in a perfect world, so I am going to wait to see what they actually release before I give them any of my money.
