It was hilarious seeing Liu getting dogpiled and questioned to death.  :lol

Really makes you  :doge

Their preferred targets are mostly gone. Either left, or been perm'd. Now it begins, they'll eat their own.

These fuckers are spiteful, hateful people deep down.  They always need something to rage against to justify why they're not where they wanted to be in their lives so it's little surprise that they will quickly turn on their own.

we live in a time where an argument torpedoing fallacy has been made of "both sides". as in trying to look at both sides of an issue or represent a belief that you don't necessarily back 100% in order to gain empathy or clarify the opposing position.

i'm not sure there's any going back from that. civilisation ending stuff right there.

I do it too if the stuff is frozen solid.

Ever try to eat one of those Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cakes? You need a knife and fork sometimes.

Moral of the story = is there ice cream in front of you? Do what it takes to get it in your speak hole. I have a kid and this stuff will vanish.

But on the real, eating ice cream with a fork is less than ideal. Unless you eat ice cream extremely quick (what's the point of speed eating ice cream, enjoy it), there will inevitably be a small pool of delicious melted ice cream on the bottom. The fork cannot catch the melted ice cream. What are you going to do, slurp it like a savage?

tbh, I think GAF was more fun when they had posters like terrisus and huelen. There was something innocent and endearing about them in an "aww, bless their heart" kind of way.

terrisus and Huelen were terrible. Good fodder for this thread but that's about it. Still plenty of terrible spergs on gaming side.

Looks like FartofWar may have finally got a perm. If it is a perm, I would not be surprised. He often didn't follow the hivemind on GAF, and was vocal about not doing so. That pretty much makes you a number one target for a ban. Doing so repeatedly makes a perm almost a certainty. The only thing surprising is that he lasted this long. I guess his industry status gave him a bit more wiggle room with the mods.

Shawn Elliot was the best thing about the podcasts of that era - especially GFW Radio.

I don't listen to games podcasts anymore.

One less long-time member.

One less industry-connected member.

All because of what? What is the point exactly of driving away everyone that actually made the forum into a nexus of hardcore gamers?

If Evilore's goal is to cultivate a wishy-washy, easily controlled userbase that would be sympathetic to ads and the eventual GAF gold, then weeding out "problematic" members that goes against that grain is a necessity.

Looks like FartofWar may have finally got a perm. If it is a perm, I would not be surprised. He often didn't follow the hivemind on GAF, and was vocal about not doing so. That pretty much makes you a number one target for a ban. Doing so repeatedly makes a perm almost a certainty. The only thing surprising is that he lasted this long. I guess his industry status gave him a bit more wiggle room with the mods.

Apparently his post got deleted? What was the post?

Going through the TTK content will get you into the 300's comfortably. The drop systems are designed to keep moving you higher at the same clip, despite hitting level 40, and you'll be buying level 350 gear from the tower before much longer.

But as Kor said, you can skip around if you want as well.
The *new* grind is still a grind. You go through the same zones and enter the same "dungeons" and kill the same enemies, the only difference being that they have slightly different objectives/you walk backwards through the dungeon you already visited.

 But w/e, if you know what iLevels armor/weapons are, and what player level corresponds to them, you're more invested than most hardcore MMO players.

Durr grind is still a grind, nobody believes it isn't. It's just a question of how pleasant the hamster wheel is, now they might occasionally refill the water bottle and food dispenser.

Hurray! You've deconstructed games!

I agree with your general point, but I disagree in regards to Destiny. Destiny's reuse boils down to bad game design when it's breaking the player's immersion to the point that it's a detriment to the game

 Doing a mission where you go to a mid-way point and flee, only to come back another two or three times to get *slightly* further each time is terrible. Especially when those missions have no substance.

 Doubly so when you are asked to go through a dungeon backwards or asked to do a dungeon exactly the same with one different objective.

 It's an oversimplification to equate one of Destiny's critical flaws to just seeing a game's gameflow for what it is.

Only half-kidding cuz.

Destiny at it's start was always a game that people wanted to like because it got so much right but was broken in so many ways. Some shrugged and grinded, some held their noses and played on, some wanted out of this particular Skinner box ASAP.

It never reached it's potential, but wasn't really a broken game by the time TKK came out. Still flawed tho.  :beli

Just for some reason hearing two year old hyperbole grinds my gears  :punch . And I'm not even a fanboy, only got halfway through TKK and haven't got the new xpac yet.

I knew Shawn Elliot was not long at GAF. He didn't suffer fools well. Especially those dunderheads from the BCT. I'm guessing Bish had enough.

People have gotten so paper-thin skinned lately. You can't even make a certain (true) criticism about a game anymore. Come a long way since people were writing ballads about Olimario's GF booby pics.

I'm having trouble believing a game like Destiny couldn't legitimately be described as a "grind", even if they've lessened the "grind" from what it was, originally.
