  1. Wednesday the Destiny 2 Beta begins for XBOX One pre-orders and I hope to livestream my experience! That said, what are the chances it will go smoothly? Anyhow, is anyone else getting Destiny 2 for Xbox One? So far these friends have chimed in: - Greylock3491 (me) - Spyrle - Wonderboy v2
  2. Just picked up the new remastered edition - man SC2 has so many improvements I missed lol
  3. This story is about a new "Steam Link" app coming to 4K TVs and it's very cool! Like NetFlix or YouTube, you'll now be able to stream your PC games to your TV without needing another box! Hopefully Sony and Microsoft will jump on board and allow console streaming so you don't need a PC to "remote" play your console on another TV.
  4. Amazon has the Oculus Rift + Touch + 7 games bungle for just $399:
  5. I only spent $1.50 this year - picked up Halo Spartan Strike
  6. The Steam Summer sale is live! Elite is down to $35. So far I haven't bought anything.
  7. Good morning, Lots going on today! First, for great deals on XBOX games check out the XBOX sale which starts today! Of all the deals Halo Wars 2 caught my eye (just bought it last month lol) Also going on right now are the Steam summer sale, PS4 sale, GOG sale, Oculus sale, and well I think that's it! Next, the remastered edition of Starcraft/Broodwars release date and price has been announced and it comes out 8-14-17 and only costs $15? On top of that, the original is now free?!? Wow - that's cool! Finally, I've been looking into pre-ordering Destiny 2 so I can get into the XBOX beta and think I'm going to get the digital game + expansion passes for $89... I would get the disc edition if it was included in either the Amazon or Best Buy discount programs, but it's not Weird. In fact, only Gamespot has access to the $100 deluxe edition - also weird and kind of ticks me off. Honestly, I think all the other retailers should drop the game as Bungie/Activation is only allowing them to sell the base game. It would be a drop in the bucket for them but would hurt Activision and Bungie as only the most loyal fans will go to gamestop to get a physical edition. And on that note I'm off to work! Have a great independence day weekend everyone! Grey
  8. Get the Oculus Rift, Touch, and $100 Oculus store credit for $600!
  9. This is my pick from E3: Anthem
  10. Found this E3 video showing the inside of the XBOX One X and it's pretty cool!
  11. I just took the plunge and ordered a PS4 Slim (Uncharted 4 Edition) and pre-ordered Elite Dangerous on Disc. My purpose in doing so was to support my game channel The Gamers Show as I do a lot of Elite vids and wanted to get in on Elite Dangerous at launch. Now I would love to have bought the PS4 Pro, but my budget it tight right now (and really want an XBOX One X...) And that's also the reason I went with the Elite disc version - with my Best Buy (or Amazon) membership the disc version was only $39.99. I also picked up the Uncharted Collection for $12 since Uncharted 2 was my favorite PS3 game of all time, and I never did play U1. Grey
  12. With so many new games coming out I need a list to keep track! x June 27th - Elite on PS4 - July 19th - Destiny 2 pre-order beta on xbox - August 14 - Starcraft remastered released - August 24th - Star Citizen 3.0 - September 6th - Destiny 2 console release - October 6-9 BF2 Beta - November 7th - Xbox One X - November 17th - Battlefront 2 - December 15th - Star Wars Episode 8 Last Jedi ...
  13. Last night at 5pm I sat down in an XBL live party with my youngest and turned on the XBOX E3 briefing. Mixer issues aside (everyone I talked to said they had mega issues watching via the service) I liked what I heard. That's not to say there wasn't a lot shown that didn't apply to me, however what did was pretty awesome. Here's my short list: - The new game Anthem looks awesome. Open world and built for four player co-op, this game reminds me of a cross between Destiny and Titanfall. - XBOX One X coming November 7th at $499. You can't build a PC with the same horse power anywhere close to that price! - XBOX One X is SMALLER than the S!!! Wow - Minecraft getting Win10, VR, XBOX One, Mobile, and Switch crossplay, with the "possible" addition of PS4 in the future. On a sad note no mention of Win 7/8 or XBOX 360 which is sad, especially since my old iPad will support crossplay while my much more powerful 360 and Win7 gaming pc won't. - Original XBOX Backwards Compatibility Coming - I still have all my discs, woot! Rumor is network play is coming back too! - PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Is An Xbox One X Launch Exclusive - this is very popular on pc right now - nice job MS - Lots of other cross buy and exclusive games - well done Microsoft. Here's what I still want to see at E3: - Destiny 2 - Battlefront 2 - Elite Dangerous 2.4 and XBX and PS4P enhancements Well that's it for me - what did you think?
  14. Just a quick update to let you know that I've created a new XBOX Live Club called "The Gamers Show" so friends and guests of the show can find out when we have scheduled to livestream next For info on how to request to join a club see the below link:
  15. Hey Guys, Thanks for all your replies! I totally support your thoughts on rebranding and starting a new channel. If you need any advice on setting your YouTube channel up please don't hesitate to ask - best way is either texting me or XBOX live messaging me. I only ask that if/when you do that you send me a message so I can do the "back end" clean up on BOG like I did for CAG - I like both names and want to keep them in the stable even if today I can't do anything with them. Probably would also make sense to post a simple "we're moving" video on the BOG channel letting folks know the new channel name and link, etc. However, please also feel free to continue on as BOG as long as you like - I wish I was there with you but at the present I'm finding I only can squeeze in one "extra-curricular" activity after work :-( PS - I'm looking pretty heavily at Beam's (now Mixer's) new Co-op streaming feature which seems perfect for four player co-op streams PPS - If any of you ever feel like playing some Elite (any platform) Star Citizen (PC) or Destiny 2 (XBO) send me a txt or XBOX msg and let me know as I've expanded The Gamers Show to include guests, as well as expanding into games beyond Elite. I typically play Sundays and Wednesdays 7pm-9pm, and some Sunday afternoons during the NFL off season. PPPS - Please also feel free to stop in and say hi over in The Gamers Site forums - while CAG is closed I'm keeping that other forum open so I can still post thoughts and news. You friend, Grey
  16. I truly enjoyed Destiny 1, and can't wait till December to pickup Destiny 2!!!
  17. Hey my friends, I hope all is well and I'm glad you guys are still having a lot of fun doing the show! As for me, it seems lately I can only focus on one thing after work, and while I miss hanging with you guys as well as writing Sci Fi reviews, the little time I have is all going into my Elite Dangerous videos right now. That said, I recently updated the Patreon site to acknowledge only BOG, CAGNFL, and TGS are currently active, and I'll leave it up to you guys as to if you would like to promote it or not (I'll send you any the funds that come to BOG from there.) As far as YouTube, looks like it's only up to $0.27 this year, but if you guys see it start growing let me know and I'll send you the money. Finally, I was thinking it might make sense to have redirect to the YouTube channel since nothing it happening on the site (and it looks dead) - do you guy see any problems with that? Sincerely, Grey
  18. Hey everyone, I'm happy to announce that starting today you can support,, and BandOfGamers.Net for as little as $2 a month! Since our forums were founded all the way back in 2007 we've had so many great conversations in our forums (over ten thousand of them!) and have played literally countless hours online together, its hard to remember a time before we all knew each other and spent our free time playing and discussing games!!! But now as we look towards the next decade, it's become totally obvious that the way people are finding others to game with as well as how people prefer to discuss gaming is changing, and if we don't change with the rapidly changing world of gaming we'll be left behind just like the Local Arcade and 56K Modem! And while we've already taken several steps this last year, we really need your help and support to make it to the finish line! Specifically, we're asking those of you who love gaming and enjoy using our forums or watching/listening to our shows to head over to our Patreon page and consider pledging $2 per month to keep us online! At $2 a month we need just 25 members or viewers to pledge their support to insure we'll be here in the weeks and years ahead. So please take a moment and check out our Patreon page at:, Sincerely, Greylock3491
  19. Opened on August 30th, 2007. Suspended in March of 2017. "It was a wild ride with lots of highs and lows, during which I met countless new friends and also suffered countless headaches." "But in 2017 it seems the majority of adult gamer's have no desire to share their thoughts, or discuss gaming beyond one-sided sharing clips and images, leaving most if not all of the online conversations to a very limited number of individuals." "Maybe Facebook or internet trolls wore everyone out, but whatever it was I do believe we are poorer as a society now that most gamers have moved away from social interaction in favor of sharing their experiences on their systems "activity feed." Sadly, most of that content is never viewed by anyone Final CAG Post by Greylock3491, CAG Founder
  20. Gents, I'm going to have to take a leave of absence from the show. Not sure how long it will be, but I wanted to let you know for at least the next few weeks I won't be on. Please feel free to make any changes or modifications you would like in my absence, or take a break as well if you prefer, but if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. PS - if the show continues while I'm out and makes any money I'll be sure to forward to your guys for use with the show (the channel's at $0.33 today) Peace my friends, Grey
