For those of you playing Destiny, how many are interested in getting a raid for King's Fall? Our times may be awkward next week, as I'm out of town Thursday through Sunday (bachelor party woo), but if we have enough people around the right level we should give it a shot. The first two events are pretty fun, and we can likely knock out the rest of the raid with some experience this week. Let me know if you'd like to give it a shot and when you could be on.
As a first step in preparing, I feel like we should start teaming up to play more games together. We've seen similar threads in Crowfall, but I believe that to have a unified team, we'll need to actually participate. Some of us are already hitting Arena Commander hard, which is great, and ultimately I'd love to get everyone in, but I realize the game is not in a great place for grouping up, and many people are holding out for various reasons.
However, as a community of gamers who play many different games and game types, I think it would be great for us to game together and start building that valuable trust. While I know many of you from forum interactions, I think I've only played with maybe 15 to 20% of the Star Citizen members, and I feel like that number should be higher. In general I no longer find the fantasy MMO to be my particular slice of pie, though I know a good many folks play AA and/or are planning on playing Crowfall, and hopefully we can see .
All that said, there are lots of games out there that we could play together. I've been playing the Diablo 3 new season, Heroes of the Storm off and on, and Destiny (pretty much the entire last week - if you didn't like it before, like Dak and I, please give it another shot). I will also organize a flight night every few weeks, though I noticed participation in those are typically the same group and would much prefer to see more people attend. I can usually be found online between 6pm PST and 1am PST on weekdays, with breaks for dinner and some nights off for social times. I will also be away this weekend but should be back Sunday night.
So my buddy has been playing this still, and really enjoys it, and I came back to get a Gjallarhorn last week thinking I'd have it for future endeavors.
I had initially stopped due to 1, wireless issues that I resolved with a 50 foot ethernet cable and 2, it felt really grindy and un-fun. I can say that the new and improved version removes a lot of the grindiness. Weapons are levelled quickly and non-exotics come with full damage upgrades so you only need to unlock the meaningful upgrades.
I'm still pretty bad at PVP but even that felt better. I'm very much considering giving the game another chance in TTK, though still undecided about it. Anyone else playing a bit? I'm on PS4 for new folks, but tend to play pretty late west coast time.

I know a lot of people played, then many stopped, but there is a new patch coming, along with a very requested hero: Kael'thas!
Additionally, Johanna (the Crusader from Diablo 3) will likely be released on launch day, which is June 2nd. I typically play late nights, but if anyone wants to join, I'm always up for groups. Open Beta starts May 19th, so anyone who wants to play can, and there will not be a wipe of your progress come release!
Merchants and entrepreneurs, get your wallets out and your hangars ready! The Hull sale is here, and you should definitely buy in if you're interested.
I'm thinking about getting a Hull C for heavy duty freight hauling - though I'm torn between that and the cheap Hull A starter ship!
This is significant (not only for the Sledge balance) but also because it's the first time we'll get multi-crew ships, even if it's in a very limited sense.
Probably one of, if not the, best voice attack profiles has been updated to fit the 1.1 specs. While the older version worked, it had a number of holes, including Gladius/Super Hornet support. That has now been added. Check it out here:
As many or on r/starcitizen have said, I'll likely get a very speedy and separate SSD for Star Citizen only.
For the few people out there who are into Total War, apparently the new game is quite good*, and mostly bug free (*unless you have an AMD CPU, in which case, it runs terribly right now). I've been playing the prologue campaign, and the games actually runs WAY better on my PC than Rome 2 does, and the details are not bad. I think this is basically the game Rome 2 should have been (and I almost wonder if someone will mod in the previous campaigns). Mods aren't out yet, but they're coming!
Between this and Diablo 3, I expect most of my free time will be used up.

Yes, you would technically be "paying for Beta," though I'll caveat with 2 things:
1, you don't have to - they are still doing free invites, and
2, this is one of the bundles available in game, for the exact same price
So, if anyone has been burning to play/try it out, and has $40 burning a hole in their pockets, than go for it!
