I'm a college student from North Carolina studying English and Journalism. I'm a reformed Comp Sci Major and a featured writer from Game Informer's community blogs section, which means my things get posted to the front page! Enjoying the new site so far and the long form articles Polygon has been posting.
I’d be more worried that the game was only asking for 50k despite trying to replicate the STALKER games. That’s some pretty ambitious stuff for a 50k mark.
This is complete and utter crap. They don’t care about balancing in Destiny, not this much. The vanguard class has an absurd advantage in the beta’s domination style mode, since they can just slam onto a point and kill anyone in capture range, and the map design is hilariously unbalanced. One team starts with a turret overlooking their closest control point, making it absurdly difficult to take since all they have to do is hop in that thing. Vehicles are as ridiculous in Destiny as in Halo, and the shotgun is absurd in Destiny too, how surprising. (There was a guy on the enemy team clearing points alone by charging in with a shotgun.) Also, I kept all of my weapons moving into MP, meaning I had an advantage that pretty obviously showed. I placed second on my team with a 2.00 KD and I haven’t been good at shooters in at least half a decade – also, I was playing with my PS3 over wireless because my ethernet IS STREAM TI4 ON THE SOURCE SETTING.
This is complete bunk.
What are you talking about? I’m talking about compromising the security measures of an entire system that theoretically allows people to run outside software on their PS3s, including outside software that could be used to break through security measures. Yes, Sony should be more on top of their security, but he didn’t need to release that to the public.
On the one hand, it’s a good thing he’ll be working on something productive, on the other I don’t feel like he should be rewarded with what’s probably a very well-paying job for compromising the security of millions of peoples’ personal information. He has to know how much of a problem doing something like that can cause, he’s too smart not to, and he did it anyways. Not sure I would trust someone like that with sensitive information about a company I was running after the stunt he pulled.
