July 4, 2016 // 0 Comments

Gary “PatriotPaine” Smith – Playing: NCAA Football ’14 (PS3) I just recently fired up my PS3 for the first time in quite a while.

EA still has the servers up NCAA Football, thankfully, so I’m doing a online dynasty with Sandman. In the online one, I’m coaching Troy to start with but will be exploring options via the coaching carousel at the end of the season. We’re [...]

Destiny Daily 6/23/16: Enemy of My Enemy and Salvage

June 23, 2016 // 0 Comments

Xur comes around tomorrow, so be getting your strange coins in order. I did buy Radiant Dance Machines from Xur last week, but that was only because it was a 100% perfect Discipline/Strength roll with more sniper rifle ammo. I also spent all of my strange coins on Motes of Light. I want Three of Coins to go [...]

I know what you’re thinking, “but Patriot, Destiny Daily has been popping up sporadically for weeks now!” And that’s true, I’ve been doing a trial version of Destiny Daily again recently. But it’s been the stripped down version that it was before I eventually quit doing it  altogether. I mean the actual, original, Destiny Daily is back. The one that wasn’t just listing the bounties and heroic for the day, but the one that also served as my Destiny game log where I wrote about my experiences [...]
