I’ve been playing The Division for the past 3 weeks solid. At first on Playstation (zengarageau) where I grinded to level 30, and for the past 2 weeks on PC with Ved (as Enki_333). I’ve now surpassed my Playstation character on the PC, and amazingly I’m using an Xbox controller on the PC setup which Ved’s lent me. I’m a die-hard mouse and keyboard first person shooter guy, but it looks like I’ve managed to somehow move with the times! I surprise myself!
So the game, it’s not all I hoped it would be, but there are a couple of things about it that have really surprised me; one thing is proximity chat in the Dark Zone. Basically, when you’re close to someone, or a group of people, you an hear each other talk. Simple, but this blew my mind and now when I’m running past people I’m communicating with them, saying G’Day, or yelling sorry if I’ve accidentally shot them during a cross battle. What’s more amazing is having a stranger befriend you, kill enemies with you, loot with you then turn around and shoot you down to steal everything you’ve looted. It’s real and it’s vicious out there!
Add to this a quite complicated, adjustable and layered character building system in which no 2 characters in The Division universe are likely to ever be the exactly same and you have one pretty amazing game.
So yeah. I’ve dropped the ball on life, LOL! Sorry (but not sorry!) to all the people I need to catch up with and all the things I have to do. I’ll be back in the real world soon!
