    Horizon Zero Dawn

    Because rllmuk told me to doubt it!

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    Just as a heads up, I bought this on disk originally then sold it on. Bought the complete edition on the psn store yesterday and I can load all my old saves fine..
  3. +1 for interest on the off chance this happens.. I’ve been enjoying playing dnd with my family enough that I think playing properly would be great. Should say I’ve played LMoP through once, but I am really good at not meta gaming. Although, would obviously understand if people preferred total newcomers.

    For shame, apologies. It's a toastie?

    Dungeons & Dragons Thread

    We've finished our family play through of The Lost Mine of Phandelver last night. A heroic final battle, where my amazing god given powers (spirit guardians) more or less defeated everything - which was probably good as my son hadn't scaled the fight down for there only being the three of us and the halfing got trapped for a decent portion of the fight. I think our less than strict interpretations of where players are in relation to creatures probably helped there. Generally, enemies seem to always be "yeah, he's within 5ft of you" which is mostly ok, bar when the rogue actually doesn't want to be within 5ft of them. I'm rationalizing it as a bit like the walking dead, with enemies not being there and then boom! They're all lined up right next to you.. I figure there's only so many mechanics you can try taking on as a new DM anyway. My son's all in favor of starting up another asap, which other son is cool with (and really wants to be a forest gnome ranger), I'm happy with and wife is resigned to 'enjoying' for the greater good. He'd like a brand new campaign, starting at level 1 if anyone has any suggestions? He's done a bit of googling and is liking the sound of Storm King's Thunder. Which we'll probably end up doing regardless it that's what he fancies, but I'm a bit concerned it might be too open ended in places. Although I can always just herd people along, it's kind of what I was doing in lmop anyway. Plus this time rather than being the quiet cleric who doesn't like to lead I'm the wildly charismatic bard, who clearly should be leading.

    Punisher - Season 2 out now

    Episode 10 : fustercluck spoilers Loving Frank though, he makes the show.
  8. I tried playing baldur’s gate 2 again recently and it just wasn’t very good. They’d need a massive graphics and ui overhaul before I’d get excited about it. Great games, but really dated now. Surely they’d look considerably worse on a big telly than they do on a pc screen too?

    Satisfye - Switch Gaming Grip

    Just to say I didn't end up paying import tax either (bought the grip on it's own).

    Satisfye - Switch Gaming Grip

    Mark me down as another who bought this and thinks it's brilliant. So much more comfortable to hold and completely alleviates the wrist pain I was getting from the somewhat awkward angle of the switch on it's own.I did feel a bit like, "why am I buying a bit of plastic from china just because rllmuk said it was good?" and I thought it was going to be like all the other times rllmuk has let me down. You came through this time though, I'm fully back on board the rllmuk-hype train. The only negative thing I would say is I don't like the extra thumb pads and if you put them on be very careful when you take them off, otherwise you're liable to end up pulling off the actual thumbpads and you'll never get them back on quite right again. People will say, "Twist the pad around when it's on. It'll eventually slot into place", but it's a lie.

    Random question.. I pulled the thumb pad off one of my joycons. Is there anyway to get it back on flat? It’s got lots of little raised bits of rubber on the underside and tiny little slots for them to all slot into, but it’s impossible to line up. So my thumb pad is lumpy

    The bad gaming parent thread

    They are alive though, go follow one after you kick him off. He’ll be webbed to the side of the building. Delayed safety web is I think what I claimed to my wife..

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I’m getting a bit bored of it now, lvl 33 or something. It’s all got a bit samey and I’ve given up using my ability points as until I level up my spear to 5 I can’t power up any passives and no other abilities will fit on my action buttons so what’s the point?

    Easy D&D questions

    cheers, I’ll take a gander at the links, sounds handy

    Easy D&D questions

    Yes, mostly just unconscious, the fighter failed their death saving throw 3 times though so did end up proper dead. Is there a general consensus on maps? Would a dm usually draw one out or are players expected to keep track of where they’ve been in a dungeon. I’m really bad at visualising verbal directions so I’m utterly lost after taking 2 exits.
