    What are you playing?

    Cheers, I'll give that a try if I can get the gang to give it another play @moosegrinder Under those house rules, do used spells/portals also get returned to the pool in the middle, or does that only apply to scorable dice (i.e. creatures)?

    What are you playing?

    I've been playing Quarriors with a few guys from work over lunch. Take six of the custom dice from your dice bag and roll them, use currency rolled to summon creatures/cast spells/buy a new die. When you run out of dice in your bag, on your turn return your used dice to the bag and carry on. The idea of "Dominion with dice" is an interesting one, but after 4 games sadly I think this is a bit rubbish. Usually the best move is to buy the most expensive die you can, and there's nothing to really mitigate a bad roll. Combine this with each game being being quite short and it feels as though there's very few interesting decisions or player agency whatsoever. The presentation is also horrendous, favouring a mid-nineties sense of humour and a 10-page rule book filled with bad puns for what is really a very simple game. Great-premise-but-ultimately-disappointing/10.

    Nintendo Switch

    Couldn't find an EU-based seller so ended up ordering direct from their site.

    Same. So naturally I did the sensible thing and immediately ordered the Satisfye grip and case too

    Keyforge

    Never mind, Amazon have told me they're delayed, so I've cancelled my order. Let's pretend it was renewed willpower instead.

    I may have ordered two decks of this. Despite my reservations, has to be worth a pop at £15 if I can just use some tokens from something else as stand-ins.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    From a quick test over lunch with no Wi-Fi, you have to be online each time you start the game if you want to use a Seasonal character. Once logged in you can drop offline and carry on, but it wouldn't let me start with a Seasonal character whatsoever from a cold boot. Presumably if you suspend mid-game you can continue offline though.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    I've been getting into this over the past week or so, and while I'm no MOBA expert, I'm having a lot of fun with it. A bunch of Hero prices seem to have been reduced over the past few days such that a bunch are now very affordable with free currency.

    Valkyria Chronicles 4

    I dread to think what “No guy’s got an ass this tight.” was before the localisation team "took liberties".
  10. Laser League is excellent; played it on Steam when it first came out. Hopefully being a PS+ title helps to address the small player base, as it's my only gripe with an otherwise slick little multiplayer game. I'd be interested in giving Friday 13th a go, if I wasn't already stuck into Dead by Daylight (which I've been very pleasantly surprised by), but don't think I need 2 titles to fill that niche. Not a terrible month for me.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    The main drawback comes if the console loses internet, as all of the content becomes inaccessible until the connection is restored. No offline play whatsoever, basically. Also no auto uploads of savegames, and no automatic downloads/remote play, but I wasn't terribly bothered about those.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    A little more convoluted than it should be (so sorry if I explain this poorly), but if you set your son's PS4 to be the Primary Console for your account, and your PS4 to be the Primary Console for his account, you should have access to each other's libraries and any downloaded DLC, provided the consoles are online. In this instance, it would mean you can both enjoy the full BF1 experience (and together) even though he doesn't have the Premium Pass. This certainly works, as it's what my wife and I have done this for some time now, and can play Destiny 2, Dead by Daylight etc together even though we only own one copy of each. Hope that helps.

    Battlefield 1 - World War One

    £3.99 for the base game when the premium pass was already free is insanely good value, so I picked this up and set it downloading last night. Anyone know why setting BF1 to download on PS4 automatically downloaded BF1, the Premium Pass and...all the DLC for Battlefield 4 (I don't currently have BF4 installed)? I had to cancel the BF4 stuff and then manually hunt for the BF1 DLC packs 2-4, as they weren't listed as being attached to BF1 at all in the Playstation Store; not a big deal, just really odd.

    Do/did your parents game?

    My Dad was actually the one who got me into gaming, ordering a bunch of shareware games on disk for our first 386 PC. The Commander Keen series, Duke Nukem 1-3, Wolfenstein, Secret of Monkey Island 1 & 2, Populus, Sim City etc. I remember being unimpressed with the prospect of a game about a duke, and my Dad trying to explain the name when I didn't know what a "nuke" was...in my defence, I was eight Dad worked long hours, and I barely saw him during the week, but one of the few activities we'd do together on an occasional weekend was play the original Worms, or Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe; the latter wasn't actually two-player, so one of us would pilot on a joystick while the other fired missiles on keyboard (and occasionally encouraged the pilot to shoot down the enemy trying to parachute to safety). After a while Dad lost interest, and with the rise of the internet I started looking there for multiplayer options instead. I'd sometimes try to get Dad excited about a new two-player game by leaving magazines with what I thought were particularly impressive screenshots on his armchair, but he'd just complain that I was leaving clutter around the house, and was adamant that I'd get a "real outdoor" hobby soon enough. He never made much time for gaming after that...though he did quietly 3-star everything in the original Angry Birds. Mum fucking loves Words With Friends though.
