Why is Shadow of Mordor on sale for consoles but is more expensive for PC download? Doesn't make sense to me.

Let me guess - either Nomad (app) or Initiates (app related, but something else, too) chests. The app adds things to the game besides the chests, too.

Bunch of updates to Destiny:
Exotic updates, most notablyThorn, Bad Juju and the Vex Mythoclast, but most of them got some change.

Planet materials now come from daily heroic, the daily patrol mission, and are for purchase from vendors for marks (10 marks for 20 material).

Exotics no longer need ascendant materials, but 1 exotic shard for the last node, bought for 7 strange coins or by dismantling an exotic.

Oh, and the templar can no longer be cheesed.

I'm sure you can just chill up top and kill him from up there.

Assuming you can get the shield up there.

I've never cheesed the templar on hard mode, my group always did it legit. We keep 4 people up top, and have 2 down below, one takes the relic, the other helps keep harpies off him, and takes care of the two oracles in the far back. The 4 up top just use icebreakers to take out the templar.

I couldn't tell you for certain, although I did not download the app. Is the app actually fun, or is it just necessary for doing parts of the game? I usually find companion apps gimicky and/or buggy, so I try to avoid them. I kind of feel like making an app a "must have" is a lazy way of making it a must have.

For some reason I thought I needed to do coop to open some of the chests.

So, has anyone played DA:I enough to recommend a class? I want to play a Mage, but I hate not being able to take a hit (which I felt awesome casting spells in Skyrim). I just like the idea of raining ice or fire on people. Normally I play a warrior, because they can take hits, but that gets repetitive. I just want to do something cool/fun.

So I discovered over the weekend just how easy it is to put emulators and games on my GS3. No more crappy mobile games for me. I now have a level 27 Alakazam
