Combat Medic is probably the most satisfying role for me on multiplayer titles. A powerful medic makes a difference and in many situations, on The Division it is almost impossible to thrive without a high-level medic on the team.
For new players the safety net of being revived makes the healer class an instant friend. The real life comparison to a knowledgeable InfoSec Pro is interesting as not many organisations wing it without at least one specialist being accountable.
I’ve spent the past few days in the game reward loop earning points on Tom Clancy’s The Division Global Event. It’s an excellent way to keep gamers playing with the hope of finding loot and rewards.
I ended up aiming for 50 mixed caches as my goal at the end of GE which should increase my chances of getting something special. My cache opening ceremony will probably take 20-30 minutes just to re-organise the inventory.
Here’s what on the Wishlist
AlphaBridge Classified Holster Striker Classified Gloves and Holster Lone Star Classified Mask, Knee Pads and Holster D3-FNC Classified Holster Reclaimer Classified Gloves and Knee Pads
This is absolute gibberish to non-Division gamers and like all acronyms and industry talk, it inadvertently divides people. I could actually meet a Division player and have a full decent genuine conversation dispute the demographic or real-life profile. Words like grind, face tanking, exotics and caches mean a totally different thing here.
This is what makes a game successful, I don’t see nothing wrong with a little Bump and Grind.
1st day of exercise for 50 days….feels good though.
My love for single player games continues; this skillset is particularly fruitful in a real-life Person versus Environment (PvE) situation. This morning I arrive at Gatwick Airport knowing I had just one hour to get to the terminal gate.
Navigating major airport terminals during summer holidays is challenging if you don’t anticipate the delays and have a countermeasure in mind. Also, any Network specialist will tell you that the last ‘hop’ is often the most problematic.
10:30 arrive at Gatwick by train 10:40 arrive at terminal monorail shuttle transfer (Primary service) Delay 1 - (Service failure)Terminal train out of service transferred to slow buses. 10:45 arrive at terminal 10:50 Checked-in luggage (I don’t normally do this) 10:55 Arrive at security check Delay 2 - (Slow Service) Carry-on luggage selected for ‘random’ check 11:05 Cleared to proceed to gateway Delay 3 - Gate allocated at 15 mins walk 11:10 Arrive at Gate sweating and panting 11:30 Actually boarding plane Delay 4 - Sitting on runway waiting for flight slot 12:14 Flight actually takes off
Flight departure scheduled for 11:55 and there no compensation or anything I can do about it except bitch and blog.
Heavy or cumbersome hand luggage Travel document misplaced Gadgets misplaced Fast steady pace walk pass all NPCs (In real life - families, groups,tourists, airport staff walking the opposite way and folk who arrived early) Shopping queues No window shopping No phone calls No App checking No SMS or VoIP No other players ...single player runs are definitely faster
Elevated blood pressure Massive adrenaline surge No time to think No last minute detours Hight chance of verbal conflict
Arrive 2 hours ahead of time. (Problem: 4 out 5 EasyJet flights delayed)
Chaos can raise its head rapidly. Are you prepared?
Winter version is similar with the added bonus of being able to use your coat to conceal a second carry-on bag avoiding the additional fee….whoops, did I say that out loud.
iOS 12’s new features are perfect for self-analysis. The built-in Screen time feature is just the sort of transparency an users now need. A pure non-technical approach to analytics give you granular control over your downtime, App time limits and content restricts.
My screen time is 77% down from last week and it’s very fitting as I was using social networking frequently with a Loved one.
Here’s some interest stats about me from ScreenTime I picked up my phone 30 times a day Once every 35 minutes after 14:00 I get around 13 notification a day
The most obvious use of this new resource is parent control, although I deliberately changed by device usage behaviour based on these stats.
Many of us won’t want to know these statistics. The truth about our device dependency is confirmed and proved.
Ignorance is not always bliss.
After 434 in-game days, I’ve finished the last story mode chapter of FallOut 4. It’s been a nice long read and a pleasant range of endings. As a completist, I’m drawn to the final few trophy hunts one of which is aptly named “They’re not Dolls”.
So far my bobblehead collection contains Charisma Energy weapons Medicine Melee Perception Repair Speech Explosive Small Guns Intelligence Luck Searching for Sneak Science Big guns Barter Endurance Lock Picking Strength Unarmed Agility
