  1. They didn't have it set up but they said it'll support from launch or very soon after *all* Sky/Virgin/freeview/freesat etc devices/boxes and also TV sets. That side of it looked really quite impressive, far better than I thought it'd be.
  2. Yeah, it's really impressive when used right, I'm very interested to hear (probably not until after the dust settles) the opinions on the two new console controllers. People who used both the 360 and PS3 pad a lot, see what they think of the new ones. The PS4 pad is a vast improvement imo over the PS3 one (still a couple of issues though), where as the One pad is merely a refinement but I still prefer the Xbox layout overall.
  3. The trade ones started last week, be prepared to be a bit freaked out at first by the extra trigger rumble stuff
  4. The arena mode is the nearest you'll get to that in game atm, It's a bit like a big MtG booster draft thing. If your friend doesn't mind, then have a look at that, it's the mode I am enjoying on it.
  5. They either sent a bucket load the last few days or my WoW Guild/Battle.net friends list got really lucky, 10 or 12 of us got invites in this last batch, including myself (finally!) As a MtG player since just before 4th edition and on and off since 6th ed, I am loving it, yeah it's simpler but it is really great fun for lunch times etc as you know games will only be 10 minutes or so. I won't bother writing much more as there is plenty of info around on the net about it but if anyone does have any questions I'll keep an eye on this thread and answer them
  6. If you didn't shout "First rank, FIRE" when the first attacked, "Second rank, FIRE" on the second etc you deserve to have lost that game.
  7. It's automatic, so just don't "do" the S rank conversation in the support menu until you've done the S rank one with who you do want her to marry, or don't ever do any S rank ones if you want to let her die alone as a miserable spinster...
  8. Must have missed this, does Religion spread along the new trade routes? Does how long they are effect how quickly it spreads etc or don't know yet?
  9. I have the play Europe one but not tried it yet, I like the stupidly large "Play the world extended" map again with correct locations etc that I have. It really is huge though, be warned
  10. As a heads up for this and other Lego games - Lego are scrapping *All* their board games and not producing anymore God knows why, they seemed to do well, especially Creationary but yeah, if you are after any of them pick them up while you still can.
  11. See, this is the thing, I agree with all that but then... Why no mods in MP? If you've even looked at the MP screen, it has a column for each game saying if it has mods or not but they will all say no as you can't turn them on... Which is odd, been like that since launch, Let us use them ffs, I have some nice maps, or if not hide that option/marker as it's just taunting people! Then, you can only turn on 41 City States max in SP iirc but you can do 42 in MP? er, why? (This may be the other way around I can't remember) Also, can we have more than 12 slots for MP, even if the extra are "only" AI slots and not people. As you can possibly tell, I am one of those mad fuckers who plays this MP, though mostly as Co-op fun with a couple of mates. Why can't we choose to have the full 22 Civs in MP, the three of us who normally play all have Comps that can cope with that, why can't we have mods on and use some of the cool maps etc? *Grumble* Even if none of the above changes, I will still spend a daft number of hours on this before and after the new expansion, *sigh*
  12. *sigh* It's a shame reading this current discussion is providing more entertainment than Sim City itself...
  13. My couple of hours with this yesterday were mostly taken up by running around going "omg I can't remember anything!" as I slowly got back into it. Infinite ferrystone and a new set location in Cassardis to teleport to is nice certainly for those of us who have already played the game but not sure how much that much change the experience (for better or worse) for anyone new to this. Looking forward to getting stuck in again tonight!

    No furniture as such but at least one must have vanity item for the apartment iirc

    Have you tried playing on the crane grab machine in the arcade? See if you have better luck than a certain foul-mouthed old squadmate
  16. I like the boat designs, I am currently doing a harbour/docks area and have to do 3-4 small cargo boats/barges so am snooping around for ideas A couple of screenshots of the castle that myself and two friends built on our server, Survival, no creative mode (yeah yeah apart form flying for screenshots!). Night Screenshots (I think it looks better) Day Screenshot (Just because) No castle is complete without a Fable III style treasure pile! The castle also contains a throne room, feast hall, King's chambers, servant's quarters, combination lock for the treasure room, dungeon, blacksmith, gardens, small farm and the wizards tower houses the library and alchemy labs. Not all worth screenshots really, there is a town just next to the castle (can see the town wall in the front castle shot) that is much much larger than the castle, 4-6 times the footprint. That is still under construction, will probably be back with some pictures of that when it's finally done.
  17. Hmm, tried this post once and the forum ate it, let's see. I think (assume, whatever) most people probably just play on private servers these days with friends, I know I do. On that note, texture pack wise we've been using Herrsommer but since the last update we've changed a couple of textures that we weren't happy with but we just can't find one for torches that we like. We want a proper medieval style metal wall bracket type thing, any suggestions? Might come and post some screen shots soon as some bits of what we are building are nearly done, it really isn't that impressive compared to some but we're proud of it

    It is amazingly daft and silly fan service but it is so much fun! End of dlc spoilery stuff

    Mass Effect 3

    I've looked back at the screen and seen this 3 times now and each time read it as "800 Bioware points, e.g gig" and been really confused for a second. I think my brain has had enough for today

    Mass Effect 3

    Yeah, and the free extended ending if not already downloaded! Omega was... not memorable. Also on another note as I just checked the Bioware social website they have slapped up a couple more "weekend" challenges than run for the next few days I assume as a one year type celebration. Extract once against each of the 4 enemy types on Silver or higher and then a second challenge to extract once against each of them on platinum... Could be entertaining but take a while

    Mass Effect 3

    Ah, thought so, good to know! I can vouch for this being true and fun. Last night had a game with one friend as the new Krogan Warlord and myself in a matching colour scheme Volus with the Batarian gauntlet following him round healing us both and playing mini-Krogan joining in on the melee action, is more fun than it really should be!

    Mass Effect 3

    Loooads of people played this tonight it seems Some good fun with the new stuff I tried out but still need to test out some of their powers a bit more. Geth JuggerPrime - Tried him with everything into health/shields/defensive stuff and it was quite amusing lumbering around and using his Deathgrip/lifedrain ability on enemies while loads of others are shooting you and your health barely gets scratched. Talon Merc - Hmmmm Not sure about him, The trip mines are awesome but really don't know about the Omni-bow thing. Will have to try again. MC Krogan - Smashing stuff with the hammer is amazing fun but not sure about how tough he is compared to how massive he is, as he can't take cover. Also, unless we just got very lucky, the new Geth guys don't seem to get instant-killed ever? If we weren't just very lucky and this is the case, makes them kinda awesome. We did try standing around and slapping the odd Banshee/Phantom/Atlas etc in the face but never got killed. Certainly good fun so far, although still slightly confused as I am sure the earlier previews of this dlc last month mentioned new maps as well? Or was that just rumours and not from Bioware themselves?

    I watch a small bit of the stream earlier Bioware did with them showing the new classes... Some of them do sound really kinda cool! Tomorrow at work is gonna go so slow...

    Mass Effect 3

    You Bioware profile is hiding for some reason The N7 Slayer is quite fun but I prefer the N7 Shadow and his crazy flaming sword of backstabbing +1 Although both of their Sword shockwave attack...things are awesome!

    Mass Effect 3

    N7 Destroyer with the Typhoon Different people have different playstyles, I've got a friend who loves playing Vorcha and is crazy good with them but I am rubbish with them. Inflitrators are useful for cloaking for objective wave sneakyness on Gold, where Vanguards have to be more careful due to the higher number of insta-death nasties. The Turian or Krogan Sentinels/Soldiers are good all round bets, decent survivability and powers/grenades. If you don't have many higher rank decent guns, then best bet may be playing an adept, as they rely more on powers than their guns. If anyone feels like some games on this on Xbox I am always up for it, just give me a shout, on here or on Live, Gamertag is same as forum name.
