I think there's plenty to do without the season pass. Horde mode (never been!), bounties, supply drops, in addition to the coop missions with difficulty scaling, and the Dark Zone.

With regard to the season pass content, the subway thing you're referring to is Underground, I think. In addition to modifications, the levels are procedurally generated, so there's a lot of gameplay there. There's also Survival, which was fun single player. Would love to try that co-op. And I'd be up to try the incursions, whether they are top-notch or not, just to see what they're like. We could always dial back the difficulty and blast through.

I think once we get our gear scores up, the Incursions are supposed to become much more playable.

Last night I took my first real trip into the Dark Zone. I got wrecked!

This is certainly an area where you really need friends because taking on all of these elites alone is rough. I only encountered one group of other players - apparently they were all rogue and they killed me without much of a fight. Thankfully they left, so I was alone most of the night. 

I did manage to get one bag of goodies out, but it's tough to clear the extraction zones alone. I am only at Level 22, so I'm hoping the Level 30 Dark Zone will have more players - but that also means more people being asshats...lol

Overall, it's an interesting place and seems like it would be fun to go in as a group.

I always loved the tension of going in to the Dark Zone, and had many enjoyable trips in, but you couldn't take it too seriously as it was commonly understood that PvP balance was lacking. My experiences are from many months ago. Not sure what the situation is now.

So who's up for another go at this tomorrow?  If so, what kind of character are you bringing?

I will try to be on. I think this was a bad week for Hammerdrake. Is Saturday the best day for The Division? I will have more flexibility next week and thereafter.

I am currently at Level 27. I do plan to play tonight and probably some tomorrow, but not sure I'll be to Level 30 by tomorrow night - but I'll try. 

If I don't quite make Level 30, perhaps I could run with you guys on your mains, but on World Tier 1 and just hang back...lol

That might work, and if it doesn't, we'll figure something else out. Anyhow, don't stress about leveling quickly. Perfect way to ruin a good game. I plan to be on at 8 ET.

I should be on between 8:30 and 9:00.  I'd bring my chick character, but I don't want there to be any cat fights ...

My female character is still back at level 11 or so, where we left her last week....

I made it to Level 30, so perhaps we can play some World Tier 1 tonight. I'm not sure what time I'll be on tonight, so it might be close to the time Zikan posted.

Anyway, I'll be around and ready to get some real gear now...lol

If the main goal was helping Darth level his new level 30, we did a great job. I finally got a good chance to check out the new west-side piers. You really need a fireteam at your back to explore there with any degree of comfort due to the high spawn rates. We also tried the new "resistance" game mode (horde mode with endless waves of enemies spawning in). This might become a favorite of mine...if we can only figure out what's going on. There are some odd looking devices in the level that you feed cash to. I *think* each one provides a different buff, but which does what and which should have priority escapes me so far.

On the other hand, in terms of actually completing the pier missions, we went one for four or five. Hammer, I hope you will be available next Saturday! A fourth would probably have put us over the top.

To be fair, we finished 2 missions and failed 2 missions (but one of those twice) :)

I am progressing through the world tiers at a rapid rate. I am already up to tier 4. Loot is just raining from the sky. This is good, but I am raking up so fast I don't really see the point of the other tiers. 

I also started getting some set items, so some of these perks look really interesting. THIS is what I wanted from Destiny!

Also, I was still trying to find my loadout on Saturday, so I wasn't much help since I was continuously switching guns due to all the new loot! Hopefully once all the dust settles and I can settle on some weapons, I'll be of better use...lol

Tier 4 already? Sounds like I'm going to have to stop goofing around next time we play together!

By the way, here is a nice, brief written summary of the Resistance game mode: http://thedivision.wikia.com/wiki/Resistance

Good deal guys!  I'm looking forward to Sat, but sounds like I'll be back the the bottom with my lvl 30 guy!  It's okay, you guys can pull my weight for me.  Just tell me when we're going to start!

Sounds great! Seems like 8pm ET is a bit early most weeks. Can we shoot for 8:30pm ET this Saturday?

Sounds good to me.  I'll work at getting my tank character up to World 4 so we have options of how we want to kit out.

Help me with the nuance here.  At this point all our characters have all the skills, right?  What is a "tank character?"  Is it just the gear you equip that makes the skill choices super effective?

My preferred play is the ammo/health box, improved cover and a marksman rifle. Is that a good build that fits with the team?

Darth, we'll make it work.

My presence Saturday is 50/50 right now. My sister-in-law had a baby on Sunday so we might be traveling on Saturday to see the new bundle of joy. They live about 3.5 hours away, but we just plan on leaving early and coming back the same day.

All that to say, I will probably be on, but not sure what time on Saturday.

Congratulations on the new niece/nephew, but I do not envy your seven hours of driving.

In other news, The Division (US $15) and the season pass (US $16) are in the Xbox spotlight sale this week. Plenty of room over here for more Destiny cheaters!

Even better, the Gold Edition, which includes the season pass is sub $30!

In other "cheats," a number of us have been playing Reach on Xbox 1, uploading forge maps from our old 360 accounts. Message CHA0S Qc or Vaht Vokuree on XBox live if you're interested in dates and times. It's still pretty informal.

Wow, Halo Reach? Now that sounds interesting. I might have to jump in one night to see if I can still shoot a DMR.

I have noticed that, but starting times so far have been a little too late for me.

The informal Halo Reach sessions have generally been starting around 11pm ET Tuesdays and Friday as a kind of Raid "after party." We've done a couple Sundays as well, starting earlier (Missed the one last Sunday due to a post-season football game obligation). Cha0s usually sends out an announcement a day or a few hours before to those on his friends' list. I'm actually interested in turning Tuesdays 9p-11p into a regular Reach session, but I want to see if a new Raid group is going to form up first. I'll know more after Feb. 23. Stay tuned!

Is there a reason you guys are playing Reach and not MCC, H4 and/or H5? Just curious. 

I haven't had a Halo fix in a long time! I'd love to see us get some Halo groups running again.

We got burned out on MCC not long after it came out, although some of the bugs were improved over time. Not everyone purchased H5 or liked it if they did. It may partly be nostalgia, but Reach felt like a "sweet spot" to some of our group. Since the XB1 version has all the same features as the 360 version, and since all the old custom/forge maps on 360 can be transferred to XB1 (by an elaborate process), we thought it was worth giving Reach a run again for awhile.

BTW, looks like we'll be on Reach tonight 9-11, so if any of you have it on XB1, feel free to join us if interested. 16 max. Make sure you have all the DLC maps (you should get messages about this when purchasing or upgrading)

Reach has the best lobby system of all the Halo games. As I remember it, people started getting pissed at DMR bloom, the alleged ability of some to overcome it, then 343's (after they took over) reactionary patches to try and fix things like bloom.  Ironically another issue was the ability to select different load outs.  What a different world we live in today.

I may be raiding tonight but if not may be available for Reach.
