  1. Yes I am playing. "Cold Fury" is my alliance. What castle level are you? (we have a sister alliance for low-level guys called "Phoenix Knights")
  2. oh man, I need to get me a decent shotty now!
  3. I'd definitely keep the juices. Juices = flavour
  4. I've not finished VoG yet, would be up for having another crack (wiped out at Gatekeeper last try). Lvl 30 Hunter / poppa_f in game
  5. someone told me recently that James Horner wasn't given much time to do the score, so ended up re-using a lot of stuff from the Wrath of Khan soundtrack. If you listen to the Wrath of Khans OST on Spotify you are definitely reminded of some of the Aliens music
  6. want to start watching this, should I start with Series 1 or skip straight to Series 2?
  7. better to see this in 3D or 2D?
  8. See also: the rickyDVT thread
  9. Anyone trying to buy tickets today? I've found it useful in years gone by when people have pasted up the URLs for when you make it past the buy tickets page scrum, so if anyone makes it that far, please share
  10. Left4Dead on Xbox 360. I had a Wii before that and after finishing Metroid Prime I was so bored of gaming I drifted away completely. Remember reading about people playing the demo of L4D on here and it sounded so amazing I literally bought a 360 just to play it. That game re-kindled my love affair with gaming and I've not really looked back since. Strangely I never got that in to L4D2, but I'm pretty excited about Evolve, hope it lives up to the hype.
  11. Not sure it was a rational decision to kill Mike, Walt has a history of losing it and going full on hulk mental (as early on as the blow up in car wash in the first episode)
  12. I love Gollop games, dating back to Lords of Chaos on ST and covering Xcom, Lazersquad Nemesis etc. Take my money!
  13. Ornstein is weak against Fire damage and Smough against Lightning damage, so if you upgrade a decent weapon to fire or lightning, then kill one and save whoever you're weapon is good against for 2nd. The easiest way to kill them once in giant form is to kite them round the smashed pillars, lure them in to attack the pillar and then whack them while they are stunned. Don't get greedy and try to learn the signs for when they're winding up a big area attack (eg when smough flies in the air) - when this happens, stand well back. I found the Halberd normal attack is very good for this as you don't even have to drop your shield to prod at them and damage is good with the elemental boost.
  14. Basically how I killed Nito in my last playthrough. Felt a bit cheap, but did the trick first time.
  15. Did anyone see this last night? It's up on iPlayer now: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03qlrwk/Knight_Club/ Basically about this new sport where teams of people dress in full plate armour and fight each other.
  16. Bit of a quiet year from me on the videogaming front. I probably played Dark Souls more than any 2013 games and most of the latter half of the year I've been playing a ton of Magic: The Gathering (paper and online), which has taken up most of my spare gaming time. I bought Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us, but neither clicked with me enough to bother including. I'm pretty sure Papers Please would have made the list if I'd have had a chance to play it, but not got round to it yet. This year is obviously all about Dark Souls 3 Game of the Year 1. XCOM: Enemy Unknown 2. Rogue Legacy 3. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Most Wanted Game of 2014 1. Dark Souls 2 2. Dragon Age 3 3. Witcher 3 4. Chaos Reborn 5. Mirrors Edge 2
  17. Top 5: Gravity The Heat Star Trek: Into Darkness Pacific Rim Mud Was really disappointed by the animated sequels I saw, Despicable Me 2 and Monster University weren't a patch on the originals. World's End was also pretty sub-par compared to the previous 2 films in the trilogy
  18. Dungeon Master! (although already basically exists with Grimrock) Would love to try a version using Wiimote or PS Move based combat (so for fighting you hack and slash, but spell casting you have to trace the runes and chant, and the spell is more powerful the more accurate you are). Also: Lords of Chaos (although again this is already sort of in the pipeline with Julian Gollops tablet-based Chaos re-boot)
  19. spot-on on Bioshock Infinite and good to see Mirror's Edge getting some love
  20. Get enough strength for the Zweihander and then batter people with that. Comedy gold against anything small enough to stun-lock (pretty much anything humanoid, bar maybe the crystal golems and the knights)
