   This one is pretty easy but very useful. I screen shot things on my phone all the time and I know there's still a few people out there that just don't know how. 

Push and hold the Home key and Power at the same time until you see the phone take the screen shot. Here's a How to video demonstrating this just in case your not getting it quite right. They also added a great new feature where you can string multiple screen shots together to make a really long one. I'll post a video showing this as well.

The Division for Xbox One Game Review

The Division

Newbie Guide and Review

   This game mixes quite a few elements I love from a few different games. I am very excited to say that they mixed these elements perfectly and that I really don't have many complaints on this game at all! For those that don't know, your patrolling around New York after an apparent virus wipes out most of the population. Your a member of a group called the division who is trying to take back the city and rebuild their Base of Operations. You assist by completing missions, encounters, random farming, and exploring the Dark Zone. Although I feel the missions went by a little too fast and am already at 93% of my base being restored, I can't deny that ranking up in the Dark Zone is a little more challenging. Here's a few tip's and tricks to get you to level 30 fast and get your DPS through the roof!

Base of Operations - 

  You earn points for 3 different catagories to rebuild your Base of operations.




   The main missions earn the most points for base rebuild, although these can get very very hard. If you highlight the mission on the map you can see what the level is. I suggest staying within your level range, no more than 2 or 3 levels higher than your current level. Make sure you have a decent team as well. If your doing a level 20 mission you don't want to be carrying a level 10 through it. If your party leader boot him. Also having high level friends play with you can hurt as well as help.

   Say your doing that same level 20 mission and you are only level 18, if I jump in at level 30 the enemies will be higher level and very hard for you to take down. You can always group up with randoms by using the games matchmaking feature, seems to work very well and groups you accordingly. 

   Well even if you fly through all the missions you'll still have a way to go to unlocking 100% on each bracket. That's what encounters are for, make sure to complete as many as you can as they only give 60 points each time. 

   It was a hard journey but I finally finished Security off and was surprised that you get another Skill Slot. Now when I hold down RB and LB at the same time I have a super skill that boosts myself and my teammates. Almost done with Medic and Tech only 1 more upgrade left on both. 

Leveling - 

  Fastest way to level is Missions and Side Missions. Early on side missions actually give a lot of exp. Also make sure to stay in one area until you've completed all the side missions in the area. Once you do return to the safe house for a reward, found this one out a little late in the game and missed out on some great blueprints. 

  Dark Zone does not level you up, there is a separate level kept for the Dark Zone but you get some great item's!

Weapons & DPS -

   DPS is definitely the most important trait you have in The Division. Personally I tend to carry around one assault rifle and one marksman rifle. I like the combo so that long or short range I can get them both. 

   Armor and gun attachments can greatly affect your DPS as well as other attributes. I tend to make sure and use mods that improve my guns DPS, where as with armor mods I use whatever increases my health. By all means I am not saying this is the best way to build a character but it is the way I built mine. Here's a screen shot of my stats.

   I did notice that some armor items can actually have higher armor rating yet lowers your DPS and Health if you equip it. Make sure to choose your armors and weapons carefully and always make sure to check out your crafting station for weapons or armor that's better than what you are using. 

Well that's my short review and newbie guide. There's a lot more to this game of course I just don't feel like typing it all or giving away the game for that matter! Gotta figure out some things for yourself that is why you bought the game isn't it? 

  I will be reviewing the Dark Zone soon, need to get some experience in there first only rank 15 so far!

The Division Servers Down on Day 2

Tom Clancy's The Division

Record Sales and Server Issues

  Well I would have to say that Ubisoft definitely outdid themselves with this game, minus some small server issues since launch I personally think this game is excellent. I've probably put about 6 or 7 hours of playing in and I really like how the game is setup. Has a destiny feel to it yet more in depth. Ubisoft also reported that it has hit record breaking sales over any game they have ever released in 30 years! 

My screen is telling me to go to I went there and still know nothing about this outage. 

Server Outage 12pm Eastern time

ROMEO 20310358

Fixed by restarting your Xbox 

Server Outage 1am Eastern time

DELTA  20010186

Fix yet to be found...

  How's everyone else feeling about the game? I have one issue when you try and play a mission with lower levels it seems to spawn much harder foe's for them than they can handle. Think they need to tweak that a little. I jumped in with a lvl 4 and 5 when I was 14, we turned a corner (mind you in a low lvl area) and got ambushed by a few lvl 16! lol. I did figure out that if I highlight the destination while in a fireteam with low level team mates the game spawns high, really high. I then had the lowest guy in the group highlight the mission and we got lvl 7's instead, still very very hard when you are level 4 and 5 but easy to carry them through at 14. 

  I feel the base should have more upgrades, I'm only on day 2 and I have completed 60%. I know it will be slower going now due to needing to level a few times before going for another mission but still seemed pretty quick to me. 

  Great selection of gun's and customization, can't wait to get my hand's on some Dark Zone weaponry. Anyone tried anything from those vendors yet? If so let me know what you think. 

  More to come I will be posting some videos and more in depth reviews in the near future!

Tom Clancy's The Division... Servers down on Launch Day!

Tom Clancy's
The Division

(I play on an Xbox One and am not affiliated with Microsoft in any way.)

   Launch Day Tragedy!!! Well I was hoping to be posting about how great this game is and maybe have some gameplay vid's ready by morning. After about an hour install, this is what I'm getting....

What does "ROMEO 20310358" mean you may ask? Well it basically means you wasted your time picking up The Division at the midnight launch. A lot of games crash or kick you on launch day because of server strain but this is really bad.

 I'll be trying till about 2 am Eastern time and will post if it starts up. People are saying on reddit they were able to get online after restarting their Xbox. This worked for me, good luck to all!

Let me know in the comments if you get on tonight!
