Out of the Blue

My pet-sitting got extended by some changes to our neighbors' plans, but they are home again, so my services are no longer required. I had a great time looking after the little guys, and I think I was a pretty good choice for the job, as I went a little beyond my minimized mandate to do some cage cleaning and such. I'll miss my daily visits with the gecko and guinea pig, and am more set than ever on the idea of getting a lizard of my own.

Who wants a PS4 Destiny beta code? I have 2 to give away.


OK, WTF? Bungie has the firehose turned on! 13.2Gb in 47 seconds! Wow. Nevermind, it was 3Gb in 47 seconds. Still fast, but now I am DLing 10Gb.

If you get in, you'll have to keep trying to connect to PSN and then Bungie.

will the codes work on pc or xbone? if so i'll take one.

Only work for PS4, sorry. (And there is no PC version yet.)

Took about 2 hours to do 10.47Gb.

Beta actually starts from the very beginning of the game, when your ghost finds you, so it's already longer than the Alpha. Very cool so far.

Well, if you played the Alpha, you pretty much know where the Beta ends. Except you're much lower level in the beta.

Still a lot of fun. Can't wait for release so I don't feel so constrained. (Look, look at the moon! You see that? WELL YOU CAN'T GO THERE UNTIL 9/9, HAHAHA!) PVE is great, PVP is me getting slaughtered by console guys who play Duty or BF or Halo. I tried it once since the game said to. I will probably never play PVP again. Not even if this releases on PC. Small, console centric PVP maps. Blah.

The PVP is the best part. Wait until level 8 when you have more, at level 5 it feels like unbalanced garbage but at level 8 everything just clicks. The fights are much more balanced and the PVP is fantastic. Seriously give it another chance, it really deserves a second look. I can't believe I am actually enjoying a console FPS game but Destiny is fun.

I got the dreaded stick tearing tonight while playing....weeee!

Got halfway through the second mission and then kicked due to a network error. Guess I'll pickup again later.

Bungie released the companion app for iOS and Android too. Pretty neat, but doesn't do much yet. But I can look at my Warlock when I can't play!

PSN is unfortunately shitting the bed at the moment, Sony needs to stop partnering with Rackspace this shit is getting ridiculous with every big game launch taking down the auth and other servers.

And people whine about Steam...when summer sales hit. *Snork*

That's crazy.

Yeah, I think it's faked somehow. I really doubt one guy can put a 400lb+ motorcycle on his head without damaging his skull or spinal system, not to mention I don't think that ladder would take the weight of the man and the motorcycle.

Large crater appears at the 'end of the world'.

Looks like a pretty typical sinkhole like the kind you see in FL a lot. A couple key differences are the size, and all the material that's blasted out around the edge of the crater. Sinkholes usually aren't that wide or deep, they tend to collapse before the erosion reaches that stage. And it's a mystery why material has been thrown out of the crater, and why the crater edge is slightly raised.

And how is Mrs. Blue with you getting a lizard?

I'd like to get a hedgehog, but they're a lot of work.

Edit: Looks like everyone is doing Bethsoft sales this weekend for Quakecon, Amazon and Steam's are spread out over the next 3 days.

It's good money around here. I see a lot of ladies walking multiple dogs along the beach. The rich pay a premium.
