Destiny: The Taken King GOOD BYE LUCK !

Destiny will change to leveling experience all the way up to level 40! Destiny has a second life for me again. What I hate about Destiny right now is light,luck and mindless grind! GOODBYE in Sept! We all paid to beta test Destiny. Bungie and Activision are laughing all the way to the bank!

Quotes from gameinformer

“Our recent visit to Bungie provided us with hours of hands-on impressions detailed in this month’s magazine cover story, and one of the major changes we learned about is a new approach to leveling. Players earn XP by killing monsters, completing missions, and turning in bounties, as has always been the case, but that experience now feeds directly into your level progression all the way from 1 to the new level cap of 40.

Meanwhile, weapons and armor continue to provide increased power to your character, with new gear unlocking for use as you level up. “The conflation of gear and character level led to this place where your identity was determined by things outside of your control,” says creative director Luke Smith. “We don’t want to do that.”

We were also told that Destiny’s loot system will now pay closer attention to the loot you have already received when determining an appropriate drop, so that players will more consistently receive armor and weapons that provide meaningful power growth, items that vary their gear slot from one drop to the next, and fewer drops of items that a player has already attained.

Our Take
The original release of Destiny had an unusual progression system. Leveling followed a traditional RPG structure for levels 1-20, but switched over to gear as the main path to advancement for subsequent levels. Not only did the system lead to some confusion, but it also left many players stuck at a given level for too long as they waited for the loot drop they needed to progress. The new system should be friendlier to new players, but should also benefit veteran guardians who are eager to see their extensive play time met with commensurate progression and rewards. In my hands-on time, my existing level 34 guardians transitioned seamlessly into the new system, and leveling during subsequent story missions was smooth and engaging.”

Triumph unveils bespoke ‘Venom’ custom bike based on KONAMI’s METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN!

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced a special creative partnership with Triumph, which has seen the motorcycle specialists produce a stunning bespoke ‘Venom’ bike thematically linked to KONAMI’s forthcoming METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN title.
METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN is scheduled to be release on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360™, and Xbox One™ on September 1st. To celebrate the game’s launch – and continuing a relationship that has seen Triumph bikes featured in METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER, METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS and METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER – Triumph’s bespoke VTB:1/Venom unit reflects the hard-edged and stripped-back edge of the broken but unbowed hero that returns for the new game.

The ‘Venom’ bike is inspired by the legendary Triumph Bonneville T100 ridden by Snake in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, and is a custom build, created by the Triumph team. Their brief was to bring to life Snake’s stripped back edge via unique styling and detailing, including game-inspired graphics and the renowned Diamond Dogs logo. The resulting ‘Venom’ is a mission-ready bike tailored to the wilds of Afghanistan and Africa.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN’s Diamond Dogs pack leader has little need for civil niceties, so mirrors, speedometer, and rev counter were quickly stripped off with function defining form. From there on in, this stock T100 Bonneville has evolved to become the ultimate hot rod.

Off-road duties are handled with ease thanks to custom rims fitted with dirt-focused rubber in the form of Continental TKC80 tyres. The stock saddle has been cut down and refinished in Sneaking Suit neoprene and carbon Kevlar leather inspired by Snake’s iconic combat wear. A heavy duty ammo rack loops around the back of the saddle, offering both protection and somewhere secure to bolt down an extra case or two of .50 cal.

A yellowed-out JVB Rumbler headlight and external heavy-duty fork springs give an aggressive dimension to the front end, while the profile is exaggerated by the lack of front mudguard. At the rear, the cut-down rear guard and an exclamation mark-shaped tail-light add to the individuality of the machine. Colour-matched callipers and cam cover are additional stand-out details, whilst the custom slash-cut exhausts deliver a soundtrack that lives up to the looks. Details such as Triumph Tiger off-road foot pegs, Renthal performance sprocket, machined throttle body caps and Triumph sport levers all contribute to making this bike as unique as it’s rider. Finally a hard-wearing stencilled matte black Diamond Dogs livery clearly links bike and owner – creating a Bonneville fit for Snake.

GTA Online Heist – Here we go !

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC (April 14)
Price: Free
Release Date: March 10, 2015

What are Heists?

Heists are a new type of gameplay experience inside GTA Online – they are massive, multi-layered, 4-player co-operative missions that encourage players to work together and make the most of their individual strengths, and a team’s level of communication and coordination can make or break each mission.

Rather than existing inside the current forms of GTA Online, they are now essentially a game within a game, designed to add another major option to the experience of GTA Online alongside Free Mode, traditional co-op jobs, competitive modes, and races. Each Heist has its own story and set of missions that have you interacting with new and returning characters from the story of GTAV.

Sometimes you will be working alone or in pairs, and sometimes as one tight unit in order to execute your objectives, and each player will have a completely different experience depending on their role in each mission. Communication is key. You’ll need to be in close contact with your team and sometimes synchronize your action in order to succeed.

There are five total Heists with the first serving as a tutorial for two players.

Hosting and Joining Heists

To host a Heist in GTA Online, your character must be Rank 12 and own a high-end apartment. If you are under rank 12 or do not own a high end apartment, you can still join a Heist another player invites you to.

To join a Heist as a crew member without an invite, go to the Quick Job menu on the phone. Select “Play Heist” to quickly jump into the action.

Once you complete the prerequisites above, Lester will give you a call to set up your first Heist. Once you complete your first Setup Mission, there is a brief delay before Lester calls you for the next part of the Heist. There is a small delay between completing your first Heist and Lester’s call for the next Heist as well.

To replay a Heist, simply call Lester using your in-game phone and select the “Request a Heist” option when he answers. From there, you’ll be able to play any of the Heists you’ve previously completed. There is a cool down period after the completion of each Heist before that Heist can be replayed.

Triggering a Heist

 Players who are rank 12 or above and own a high-end apartment will receive a phone call from Lester.

 When a player accepts Lester’s call and begins the Heist they become the Heist leader and can choose to invite other players from the lobby, their friend’s list, or players from the previous Heist. Players of any rank that have already completed the GTA Online tutorial up to and including Gerald’s first LTS job can play Heists.

 The heist leader has the responsibility of fronting the setup costs to acquire whatever equipment and additional NPC personnel needed to pull off the job – which amounts to a percentage of the final payout.

Setup Missions

 Members earn money for completing each setup mission.

 Heist leaders do not earn any money for completing a setup mission, though they do earn 10% more RP than other members. Leaders can assign themselves a larger portion of the take once the entire Heist is complete.

 Successfully completing a setup missions drops players back into Freemode. The Heist leader can then use their phone to return to the Heist planning board and start the next job in the strand.

Adversary Modes

Heists are available for replay after completing each full strand as Heist leader. Players can do this by calling Lester and requesting a Heist. There is a short delay before you can replay the same Heist again as Leader. Heists are available for players to join as crew members without delay as long as there is a Leader with an active lobby to join. The Heist replay board becomes available at your high-end apartment once you have completed all 5 Heist finales as Leader or crew member (but you must also have reached rank 12 and visited Lester to access it).

There is also a cool-down period between the completion of each Heist and when the next one becomes available. At the same time, new Adversary modes will progressively unlock as you complete each Heist. Adversary modes are fun new asymmetrical gameplay types within GTA Online.

There are 16 new missions spread across 3 new modes:

Come Out To Play

A team of three Runners just trying to make it home, and a team of Hunters are out for blood. Runners are well-armed but limited to movement by foot, while the opposition wield free-aim shotguns and ride motorbikes or ATVs. Hunters must stay on their bikes and have access to unlimited lives, while the Runners have just one life but all their weapons available to pick off the Hunters at will.

Siege Mentality

Up to four players stand their ground, outnumbered but not outgunned as they fight to survive against up to 6 determined attackers in a location defense mode, GTA style. Attackers have unlimited lives but fight only with sawn-off shotguns. Defenders have full use of all their weapons .

Hasta La Vista

The chase is on as Truckers in big rig cabs hunt down a team of Cyclists. The Cyclists’ goal is simple: reach the final checkpoint without getting crushed under the wheels of the pursuing trucks. Without traditional weapons the Truckers must rely solely on their vehicles to crush the Cyclists. Meanwhile, the Cyclists must harness the maneuverability and acceleration of their bikes to evade the trucks, while keeping an eye over their shoulder. If one of the Cyclists reaches the checkpoint, the Cyclists win. If all Cyclists are terminated, the Truckers prevail.

New Daily Objectives will give you a rotating series of challenges to take on for GTA$ rewards (unlocks at rank 15). Players also earn RP for completing their daily objectives. There are three new objectives per day – complete them all to earn a cash reward. Players can stack up challenges over consecutive days and weeks to earn bonuses of up to $500,000.

Elite challenges – Each Heist Finale has its own set of Elite Challenges. These consist of multiple target criteria and can be completed multiple times.
There are also Special Heist Completion bonuses that can only be achieved once per person. For example, completing objectives under a specific time or sustaining minimal vehicle damage. Successfully completing all these targets net players additional cash at the end of the heist and can be repeated on subsequent play-throughs. (These challenges cannot be completed on easy difficulty and become void if trip-skips are used.)

Additional Challenges

Each Heist has its own Elite Challenge. Here are some examples:

 First Time – Completing each Heist Finale for the first time, will net you a bonus cash reward

 All In Order Challenge – Complete all Heists in order, including Setups, to receive a $1,000,000 cash bonus

 Loyalty Challenge – Complete all Heists, including Setups, with the same team of players to receive an additional $1,000,000 bonus

 Criminal Mastermind Challenges – rewards players $10,000,000 one-time bonus for completing all 5 Heists in order, including all setups, with the same group of players, without anyone losing a single life on hard difficulty. The one-off bonus challenges are linked to in game awards. You can monitor your award progress via the Stats > Awards tab in the Pause Menu.

 As players progress through Heists, new vehicles will become available for players including the Mammoth Hydra Jet, Valkyrie Attack Helicopter, Insurgent with .50 cal mounted machine gun, and more

 Additional new equipment and items will include
o Night Vision Goggles
o Rebreather

o Flare Gun
o New outfits, masks, t-shirt, helmets

Alongside the launch of Heists come a range of changes and additions to GTA Online including:

 New point animation

 Ability to email other players

New Free Mode Activities
Players also have new opportunities for cash and RP rewards with new activities added to the world in Free Mode. Be on the lookout for calls from Lester, who may need help to distract the cops in a specific area while Lester’s accomplices finish their criminal business. Lamar may call looking for help destroying a vehicle or two, while Trevor and Ron need occasional help picking their business rival’s planes out of the sky. Along with GTA$ and RP bonuses, there are all-new Awards available for completing these challenges with style.
