I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Well shit.  So you stash it into your inventory and hope to get better drops with it pushing your light up.

Which, to be clear, totally works and works well (unless you get 3 Kinetic Weapon powerful drops in a row, like I did yesterday and Monday). I just wanted to use my Better Devils in PVE without impacting my equipped power level.

I'm glad that works.  I've been getting powerful drops now in the 570 range, which is super nice.  

But, a lack of glimmer and cores means my character still looks like an asinine hodgepodge because I can't infuse the gear I like that looks good.  

It really annoys me that I can't get my characters to look the way I'd like them to.

True. The fashion game is seriously impacted by the infusion economy. I hate that my Warlock looks like he has an old lady bun hairdo because of this Scattorhorn helmet... But it's 10 points above all my other helmets. And it's also 10 points below my overall power level too, because these powerful drops KEEP BEING GODDAMN KINETICS.

I know Bungie is aware of how important looks are in a game.  It's not just that you want to act and be powerful, but you want to look powerful while there.  It's all part and parcel of the fantasy of the game.  

Yet, they keep bringing back the ugliest hugging armor from D1 (that damned reef armor) and they make it so hard to find something you like and keep it with you.  I have a set of Lion Rampant legs for my titan.  They're my preferred exotic for the armor slot, I like the mobility.  But keeping pace with powerful drops for them have drained me of cores and cash.  I can't infuse because it's so damn expensive.  Meanwhile, I still use them because they're what I want to be wearing for the perks they provide.  Just give me something so I can use what I want and look the way I want.  

 

And bring back my damn Maulers!

I've been putting planetary shaders on my gear. It doesn't help my Titan not look stupid when I get stuck with the Scatterhorn helmet. I mean, I look less awful, but not by much. At least he gets a coherent color scheme.

I got used to running Dunemarchers for a while and it was great. Now, I'm stuck with the Dreaming City legs.

I kind of hate most of the Titan armor, to be honest.

Titans have really gotten the short end armor wise this time around.  I've yet to find an exotic that really gives me a reason to take off my Lion Rampants.  Likewise, I'm hard pressed to find armor that doesn't make me look stupid.  I hate that.

Took me well into Warmind to find a look for my Titan that I was happy with.  Which really sucks, because he's my main. 

 

Ended up with the EDZ helmet, Hallowfire Heart / Armamentarium, CoO legs, IB mark, and I think that one set of arms with the spikes on the side.  Painted him orange and called it a day.

 

Forsaken comes out and yikes none of those helmets look good. I'd use the PS exclusive helmet if it had the same perks as the standard gear.

So the PC version is now free to download. Definitely getting that even though I have it on the PS4 too.  80GB download is killer though!

If you own Forsaken, it is absolutely worth doing your "Offering to the Queen" / Gateway between worlds milestone this week in the Dreaming City.

So this past week or so, I finally got around to trying this out on the PC. I had been needing another PC game to play when the wife and kids are using the big TV in the living room where our consoles reside, and thought to give this game another try. I should state that my PC is a cheap AMD build from 2013 and the Graphics card was a midgrade card form 2014 when I was playing WOW.  So my PC isn't that great, but it doesn't seem to have that much trouble playing the game on medium settings. It looks a lot like the PS4 version that way, and it loads a lot faster than the PS4. 

 

So I am definitely liking this game on PC a lot better as it is a fun FPS to play, and so far isn't as repetitive as the base game of Destiny 1. I have only got to level 20 and I am running around the third world after rescuing Cade-6  and doing some public events and a few of the adventures. Definitely fun switching between various weapons and seeing which ones I like the best. Every time I shoot a revolver though, I have to say, "I'm your huckleberry". I just can't help it.

Well, last night, I finished the main campaign of the base game. It was fun. I don't know what I am supposed to do now, but I will look into it and see what content there is without buying a season pass or the expansion.

There's a good amount of content just with the base game, but you'll definitely encounter some stuff you're too underpowered to do. Like, Iron Banner, Xur weapons, Nightfall, etc.

 

But hey, you've got strikes, regular crucible, planetary adventures and quests, public events, etc. all ahead of you. Just keep looking for stuff on the map to do!

 

And really, consider buying Forsaken. Looks like the full pack of 3 expansions (Osiris, Warmind, Forsaken) is $40 on PC. The expansions are well worth it, especially Forsaken. You'll have SO much stuff to do, and you can get to the same power level as the rest of us.

 

The Annual Pass is very skippable. Everything I really enjoy in the game right now is from Forsaken and free seasonal updates, not the Pass content.

Yeah, Forsaken is worth it, even if the story isn't so great.

 

Curse of Osiris was bad, story-wise, but it's got some neat weapons and armor.

 

Warmind was super fun. Solid patrol zone, great weapons.

 

Get 'em both with Forsaken and it's totally worth it.

 

The Annual Pass is very meh unless you're super into Destiny. The Forges are a good idea, but I'm not sure how busy they'll be later in the year. This season's Gambit content is not fun at all.  We'll see what Season of Opulence brings.  Hopefully it's not just "go raid again."
