I think leveling will help.  It will help to open up new areas and get a couple more skill points.

Getting to new areas is just playing through the game where I agree, getting off the Southern Shelf to more useful areas is key. More levels isn't going to help unless the drops are good and the build is at a point where the skill points are going into something pivitol and game changing.

Otherwise it is all about getting to sanctuary and then getting decent items like a Harold, or a Bee from the early stages of Tiny Tina and finally progressing quickly to the dust, getting "the good, the bad and the Mordecai" quest and going farming for a Lyuda.

I'm being dumb.  The other choice is that you join up with me and I level you up a bit.  PM me if interested.

Levelling isn't going to help. Farming level appropriate gear is what will do it. I don't know how it will work with you in the game but, if you can get gear at Ray's level from mercenary day, that would be the way to go.

Have also started on the new DLC. Early days at the moment but, I'm having fun.

Playing Metro 2033 and reading the book. I'm enjoying the game, very atmospheric, reasonably challenging and has an interesting story which justifies the game being linear rather than open world, wandery, wandery like S.T.A.L.K.E.R.  I'm in a Russian setting, shooting people and mutants with a VSS Vintorez, so I'm happy.

Will add DivOS2 to my "to play" list.

I'm intrigued as to where the story of BG3 will go, given BG2 ToB wrapped the Baalspawn story arc nicely.

Playing 'Ruiner' on the PS4 following giving it a go on y friends Xbox. Refreshingly challenging for a console title and just on the right edge of frustration. It is quite frantic in places but, the bossfights require strategy and a few attempts to get them right. Great cyberpunk atmosphere and soundtrack.

Another way to do the quest without a fire is to turn on the fire turbines that are near the varkyn areas.

Say what now? This is genuinely new news to me!

TVHM is harder than UVHM because you can be underlevelled for the content and it will really hurt you. Although if you want a challenge, trying to get through TVHM at the lowest level possible, will make for an easier start to UVHM.

I've had some "generic bad file" weirdness.

So I've decided to progress from 1.09 to 1.13d. Fine. Upgrade the files, launch my Barb and I get the generic bad file message. Perplexed I try that with some of my mules. They're fine. I try it with the mule I've been using to transfer items to my 1.14 characters. Same message.

Revert all files (plus saves) back to 1.09, take items off mule. Try again. Same message. Revert back again.
Try character files, both mule and barb in 1.14, they work fine.

Try back in 1.09 again. Both characters work fine.
Try 1.13. This time the mule is fine but the barb is not.
Mule all items on the barb over to another mule for the express purpose of testing where the corruption is.
Barb loads fine. Mule does not. Aha, I think, item on the mule is corrupt.
Start moving the items, one by one, over to the another toon, to test which is the corrupt item that means the characters won't load.
Every item loads fine.
Move all items back to the Barb, the character loads fine.

I have no fucking clue what the problem was.

The TIE scene at the start feels dumber every time I watch it.  Maybe it will make more sense in the context of the film itself, but its JJ Abrhams so I won't hold on much hope for that.

That was how I felt when I first saw it as well as trying waaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard to be cool. I enjoyed the rest of the trailer though.

I am about to start running Mercenary Day to both level up and improve my equipment.

This is how I made UHVM, as it is easily the best source of at level drops you can get. Getting into the sweet spot by the lift and headshots (and death blossom) onto the boss from there is how I managed it as Zero. Gets tough in the final phase though where he starts lobbing explosive icicles near your position and you may need to keep the little snowmen up for a second wind.

Also worth doing a spot of farming in the Enchanted Forest of the Tiny Tina DLC for a Bee shield.

Had a really nice large charm drop last night. +157poison damage over 6 secs with an added 6% gold drop. I'll be holding onto that one for future use.

The music from the intro is gone which is a massive shame.

That's a shame and has somewhat put me off the idea of this now, even though fundamentally the intro music doesn't matter a damn to the game content. So maybe I'll get over that.

I imagine the music change is due to a licensing issue in getting rights to use Nation 12's 'Into the Wonderful' track.
