  1. Yeah, I spent a few nights building out the rail lines to the stadium, and Isengard, and I think the memorial island, but unfortunately there was very little time between the server being made more robust and boosters being 'fixed'
  2. Haven't installed it on this new machine (which I got 3 years ago) but it'd be nice to have a wander around! In a sling for the next few weeks so probably couldn't get bac kto my railway-building antics for the time being.
  3. The policy specifically states that refunding a game in order to re-buy it at a lower sale price is not considered abuse.
  4. Aaaand refund requested. Spent about 10 minutes in the tutorial trying to block 5 attacks in a row. It's not going to get any more fun.
  5. Just picked up Injustice for £3.74, worth a punt. Never really got into fighting games in my youth, but I've picked up Smash pretty hard in the last year or so so I thought I'd see whether the more static style works for me.

    If you have the dodge upgrade. Similarly, grappling looks helpful, once you have the upgrade. Maybe I goofed by going for dropkick before any of the seemingly essential upgrades. Kicking either doesn't interrupt their attacks, or they can counter them (because whenever I kicked them I was immediately getting nailed while they showed no sign of feeling it). Quite possibly. I was fetching Gazi's mum's chocolate or whatever and there were 6-10 zombies loitering outside the shutters I needed to get under (they were mainly shut so obviously I had no way of knowing how long it would take to open them or whether I'd shut them behind me). Didn't have any molotovs, because they compete with medpacks for resources and every death costs me 2-3 medpacks while I desperately try not to die. Didn't see any explosives around (can you really expect gas canisters on every corner), they all move far too slowly to use firecrackers to lure them away, so it was a case of dropping down and waiting for them to come at me. If I weren't using mods it would have taken me a huge amount of time to work my way through them. I am honestly trying to enjoy it, which is why I keep posting here- there's clearly something I'm just outright not understanding which is stopping me. For example, when I started playing Smash Bros I just got endlessly juggled because I didn't know that rolling and airdodging existed: now it makes up 90% of my gaming.
  7. That doesn't kill him. Not in Ultimates, anyway. He respires through his skin.

    Gave it another crack (having modded out the death penalty) and it took another 4-5 deaths to see that mission through. Can't be bothered. Does anyone find that experience fun? Was particularly irritated when I jumped down on one guy, knocking him over, whacked him in the skull 4 times and then had to stop for a breather while he got up and started wailing on me. Humans arbitrarily dodging or blocking most of your attacks when you can't do the same is pretty cheap too - feels like they have about the same amount of health as me, but *many* more defensive options. Plus every time I tried it, another weapon and a half and a couple of medkits got tossed, so even without the death penalty (which it turns out removed literally all of my survival points) it got harder and harder. I did use the propane in the end, thanks for that tip. But every combat takes a medkit or two and medkits compete with molotovs for components so I couldn't use any molotovs. Now modded it to make fatigue less crippling and get rid of weapon decay, and am experimenting with increasing the percentage of hits which break limbs. It's a lot more fun, but I'll miss out on multiplayer. L4D did melee fatigue well: it was there to stop you making an invincible wall of kickspam in a shooting-based game. And I can get behind weapon decay if it's there to make sure you're refreshing your inventory every couple of missions, using what's available and so on: not if you have to wander round with a dozen lead pipes in your backpack because the average zombie skull is harder than the pipe.
  9. And Russian, and sort of Norse, and... er... Vision. And a dude wearing the Puerto Rican flag. But yeah, fair to call it an American team. Tying it to AoU would be easier than
  10. She's pretty much the last word in fucking colossal actresses at the moment.

    Just what the FUCK was that episode?
  12. IIRC at least a portion of the fighting pit slaves were against Dany (because she banned their only livelihood) and so may be on the side of the Sons of the Harpy. And in Westeros, the nobles were the people best equipped and trained at arms. Admittedly the Ghiscari don't seem the sort for that (as armies are raised through slaves or sellswords rather than levies) but there may be some sort of martial tradition. "So do I..." - last words of JohnnyNolan
  13. The Unsullied are at least partially nerfed by Dany - half of them weren't even fully trained when she bought them (I think some of them weren't even cut yet). Presumably she put an end to a number of the more slave-y aspects of their training/ lives (it's possible they don't even take the Wine of Courage any more). According to the wiki, which references ASoS, Unsullied used as household guards, who thus have to mingle with normal people, forget their nature and get much weaker: using them as a police force living in a city would do the same. Hence the one visiting the brothel to get someone to act as his mother. Furthermore, they're all carrying 8ft long spears in a cramped, elbow-to-elbow passageway: less than ideal. Basically, the Unsullied wandering around Meereen are not nearly the Unsullied Dany bought due to her attempts to humanise them.
  14. Some comic-y spoilers, some AoU spoilers I guess...

    Ha, looking at it I don't think I even have the airdrops thing yet- got to do a story quest first.

    So grinding is necessary for pretty much the first round of quests? Also, what do you guys think about controls? With the keyboard I found there were just too many buttons to map to easily-reachable keys: with 2 attack options, zooming, 2 use options, equipment, looking back, etc. it all became a bit of a jumble. But I don't really get on with using triggers for jumping, either - A to jump is just too ingrained, it feels very counterintuitive!

    So, I'm not great at games. I do OK, I've been playing them all my life and I'm not actually retarded. I didn't get stuck in FarCry 3 or 4 on Medium (and blew through FC3 on hard and whatever the extreme difficulty was afterwards), but FarCry 1 gave me enough trouble that I couldn't be bothered to play it any more. I enjoy playing through games, rather than playing the same 5 minute section a dozen times. I'm very early on in Dying Light (bought it a few months ago, haven't had time to play), got the quests of 'check drugstore for fake antizin', 'find some antiseizure meds' and 'give Dawud a gun'. All medium. I haven't fucked anything up so far. I tried the drugstore quest, got attacked by all the dudes like I assume you're supposed to, and got fucked *so hard* that I wonder whether I was doing something wrong. I was nipping in and out, trying to plant a hit, then move out of range; using my kicks to stop them dodging, climbing on top of the van briefly when I needed to recover some stamina. None of them were down when I died and was unpleasantly surprised to find that they dock me XP for it. Do I need to spend a while grinding on zombies before attempting literally any quest? Because that's dull, given how little durability any weapon has and how little damage they do- it's a case of walking into a fight with a dozen pipes in your bag, finding a likely-looking corpse, beating it a bit, tossing a pipe, beating it a bit more, walking off while you recover, then rinse and repeat.

    Well, it's started again.
  19. We've had our share of teleporting zombies, but I think this week's really took the biscuit.
  20. Serious flashbacks of Spiderman 2: The Movie: The Game. That in OR would be incredible and nauseating.
  21. Yep! She was in S03 as well, as the pyro.

    Dying Light

    I didn't learn my lesson from Dead Island - I enjoy the game, but I'm a *massive* pussy about zombie games (despite loving related comics, films, TV etc.). Single player is very stressful, I may have a heart attack when it forces me to go out at night. Anyone else near the beginning and fancy partnering up?

    Leslie's clearly going to be a villain, though, right?
  24. I assumed that was some sort of deal whereby he was putting on a happy face for everyone, being strong and so on, but it wasn't what we felt, and he went out on his own to cry and blow off some steam because he couldn't keep it up all the time. Also, re. tatooed face man, I couldn't even tell he had face tattoos in the scene at the end, it was super dark. Re-watched a couple of times and he just looks grubby :/
