    Don't buy the year one pass. The specialisations arent hard to unlock really, takes a couple of hours for each and if you only get one the gunner is the best. You are better off getting warlords of New York.

    Season pass is totally not worth it, even if it was £5 it still wouldn't be worth it.

    Oh well, finally got the payment system working and went for it. Probably should have waited for more responses.

    Looking at the unlock path, everything after stage one was a mystery so the massive cynic in me assumed stage four would be something along the lines of "Kill 20 final bosses in an hour. By moonlight."

    Ho hum. Quite enjoying the Technician for now. Got my old Hardwired set which will do me for a while.

    Will need to do more research on when I should do the expansion. Quite enjoying bumming around DC so want to keep as many options open as possible.

    @TheRealBadabing The gear that drops at level 40 will more than triple the amount of armour and damage you can have/do at level 30.

    My armour at level 30 was about 300K, it currently sits at around 1 million at level 40 and that is before I start trying to maximise stats. Gun damage likewise goes up by a similar base amount.

    Basically once you get to level 30, move on whenever you feel like it. Whatever gear you have at level 30 will become a liability around levels 34-36.

    And you can move between the two cities whenever you want once you finish the story DLC.

    What I would say though is that heroic and challenging is absolutely brutal at level 40. If you thought it was tough at WT5 at level 30, level 40 heroic is a whole other league of brutal difficulty. (and not the good kind at the moment, sadly)

    It's designed for god roll gear which I don't have yet. I have a couple of bits approaching it but one of them I dont even use as it's an mp5 with 2 out of 3 max rolled stats, although I think it would be great for a crusader shield PvP build. Going to get right on the grind this week, the build Patrick Wolf posted today looks great so I'm going to give that a bash as it's not too dissimilar to what I'm already using except he uses striker for the 3p and in running 3p Providence.

    Also there will be an excellent build with the pestilence lmg soon. You should be able to invest quite heavily in skills and use it with talents that spread to others.

    The seasonal manhunt is out, anyone who bought WoNY gets the season pass free (you have to claim it from the store). One thing to note is that changing world difficultly or directives resets manhunt progress.

    I bought this, not for the bargain it was the other week, but £7 new wasnít too bad even so.

    I put a (slightly sickening) 800 hours into Div 1 and this feels like slipping a familiar coat on in both good and bad ways.
    I still think their world building is second to none both graphically and from a sound point of view and the guns have the same pleasing thump to them. I love to hate the naff Good Guy With A Gun vibe, itís like role playing American Sniper but with Diadora trainers on.

    But everything is a bit soured, especially soured really, to find the same old issues present. Bugs, bugs, more bugs, inconsistencies, imbalances and the same old inept server maintenance bollocks they were doing two years ago. This week they fucked a server patch that took five hours, had to do another one the very next day, promising itíd last 1.5, it took 5 hours again, then immediately on setting that live they had to do another one to fix the fix because everyone was being booted out after 5 minutes play.
    How the hell do they not have better QA after the mess they made of the first game?
    The sound was bugged to hell in the Div 2 demo I played ages ago... surprise surprise itís still not fixed multiple patches later, though, of course, they claim it is.

    Theyíre a brilliant/awful developer. Which particular one I think changes minute by minute while playing.

    Just asked to join the clan! I'm pretty easy going, and don't fuck up 'too' much.

    Will accept it when I get on soon mate. To be honest we dont actually do that much together but if you ever see me on (all the bloody time lately) then feel free to join me.

    On another note I have managed to solo a few heroics now and they havent been too bad. Although shooting the hatch at the end of roosevelt was a pain in the ass, I'm just glad I wasnt using my skill build or I would still be shooting it now.

    Excellent, thank you :D

    I'll step up my cups of tea programme to improve on aim.

    After the update, challenging is now pretty doable for me (was a bit 50/50 before), I'm a solo type and not really played enough for the best gear. Not sure I can be fussed with heroic, that respawn at the start of a level if you mess up before the boss thing would just hack me off too much I think.

    This worth grabbing for £8 in the PSN sale purely to be played single player?

    I've just bought it for £7 purely for the single player too, my research suggested it will be worth it, hope so!

    Yes. Worth that for the insanely detailed environment alone, and the gameplay is good enough.

    Story's typical Clancy crap mostly though.

    I'd say so. I picked it up for about that on pc and put about 30 hours into it. Definitely got my moneys worth just playing solo.

    The Coney island mission with the fairground is probably the best one they have done.

    I think the demo is basically the entire game.

    Demo's of open world games require you to download the open world, hence you have to download the entire game.

    OK have just started this game and think I'm level 7 or thereabouts, initially I only anticipated doing the single player but have dabbled with multiplayer which seems fun, however I am rarely able to join anyone else, presumably that's because I'm so late to the game with a woefully low level?

    When you're doing missions first time they can only be done on story difficulty, which limits matchmaking to other people in the same situation.

    Maybe join a clan or start one up, adding others at a similar level you see in shared spaces (mainly the white house by the helicopter)? I think the option to create clans is unlocked fairly quickly.
