BTW, Hark, do you know how to unlock the other two promo cards?

And this has forced me to confront one of my personal demons.  I have a really hard time maintaining an even demeanor when I feel I've been found in the Alps in competitive games.  It's made even worse when I'm playing a faceless opponent over the Internet.

If it makes you feel any better,  I never make a play thinking 'Oh, (opponent name) will hate this!!'  I make the play because it simply is a good play to make, and/or helps me win the match I'm in.

*nod* I've never hit the forfeit button, I assume there is some sort of confirmation, but I do think it is a bad idea that forfeit is right next to Lobby.

Was being a completionist this morning and exploring the lake around Colony 6.  Stumbled on a level *70* piranha just past AA Battery 3 with my level 6 party.  *boggle*

Balance!  I'm going for balance.  Hark was the only one who didn't have wound cards yet, so I thought I'd share some with him!

WTF happened to balance?  Did you really think I needed 16 wounds to end the game?  Once someone is past 10 in a 30 match, they're going to lose. 

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go dig myself out of the pile you buried me under.

For some reason, Hark forfeitted the match, you were the only person I could attack.

Discovered today that I could play this on Dolphin  (I got lucky, my drive can read disks. smile )   With 2x FSAA and 2x Antistropic, this game looks downright amazing!  One of my problems was trying to read the screen on my 32" Wega TV.  Now I can read all the dialogs clearly, as well as the tags over the monsters.  the only downside is that I couldn't transfer my save, so I'm losing four hours of play, but I skimped on the side quests a bit on my first play so I'm not completely disappointed.

Can anyone tell me when I can start crafting armor/weapons?  I know the events following Tephra Cave control the Gem Furnace access.

I am in love with this title.  It's hitting the same buttons that FF12 did, with that pseudo MMO feel.  That's all I have to say right now, other than  it sucks that I got hit with a power outage...  it had been about an hour since I saved.  I hate those moments.  DARN STORM!

I am in love with this game so far.  (And Hark just kicked my butt at the game.  He got five 2 and 3 attack minions through on one turn.  Game WAS OVER at that point. smile )

Pocket Heroes looks interesting, though it doesn't list iPad as a platform, maybe it will look ok X2.

Hopefully, if it is good, others get it and we can journey together smile

I've been waiting for this one.

Having never played either, which would be a better one to try: Avernum or Avadon?  I realize it's based on taste, etc., but which game would you recommend to someone who loved the Ultima games?
I would like to know the answer to this as well.

Well, they're both by the same company, so get both. biggrin

That said, AFAIK, Avernum lets you design your own party of 4 from scratch, while Avadon lets you create a single character (but you'll get companions as you go). And I hear really good things on both games.

Destructor has summed up the basic differences (aside from the story).  They use the same engine and game system.

Do you even get an option if you import a character? I got the option when I played the demo, but I don't remember seeing the option when I started the full game.

I did not get the Story/Normal/FPS choices when I imported my ME2 character.

I don't think I ever heard, but does anyone know why he passed away?  (If I'm bringing up some taboo, just say so and I'll let it be.)  I really enjoyed playing games online with Dave and thought of him when I thought of a good friend (since middle school) who passed in November due to ALS complications.

BTW, I just read the descriptions of the DLC this morning...  It's talking about the same armor and weapons I got as pre-order bonuses from Gamestop.  So, read it carefully if you got preorder stuff.. you may have those packs already.

Amen.  I'm thinking of getting the GOW3 headset so I can run both sound and chat into headphones.

Dreamshadow#1980 here... no relations to BSG 1980. smile

Working my way through for the Overachiever achivement.. why?  Because I like achivements.   *presses the pavlov button again*

Interesting..  There are achievements where I've earned the later versions of (Elite Kills 35, 50) but I've not gotten the 10 and 20 versions of.

You're right, it did feel a little like L4D.  The breach (aka hacking system) was very nice and context based.  I've run the whole map just healing other people up and not firing a shot, and was second on the scoreboards.  I also picked up shielding and damage amp, and I keep those active while healing and we tore through the groups.

I like to consider myself a writer, but I'm crippled by an addiction to MMOs and various gaming (aka, I don't invest any time in writing.)  I've gotten about 20k words written in two separate novels and never finished them.  It haunts me.

I hear ya. It takes real discipline to sit down and reach a writing quota every day. I keep telling myself I'll write XXXX words per day but I rarely do it. Instead I sort of write in spurts. While working on a second draft of my new book I added about 5K in 3 days. Before that I didn't write a single word for a week. I planned to write all day but I only managed to revise a few paragraphs before running off to play Fallen Enchantress.  icon_biggrin

Still, 20K is very respectable. Hang in there.

I'm using your FB posts as encouragement.

I managed to kill him twice at level 8, but the trade off was my Housecarl Lydia died too, which is weird as she wouldn't die on other attempts, just take a knee.  So I ran past and leashed him.
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim on: November 14, 2011, 03:38:46 AM
Spoiler for Hiden:
So I'm going up the 7k steps, and there is a troll I just can't kill as a warrior at level 8.  Any suggestions or do I just need to level up a little more.
 He just swats me twice or three times and I'm dead.  My housecarl and I just can't do enough damage.

Finally beat the game last night, and I'm glad I did.  It is one of those series that I'm happy with where it went and how it wrapped everything up.  I could empathize with the characters and their situation too.  Overall, Gears 1,2,and 3 tell a decent story.
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battlefield 3 on: October 25, 2011, 04:46:41 PM
I played last night without the HD pack, and thought the game looked fine.  (Granted, I did install the HD pack before I went to bed which was 1.6gb, and the MP disk which was about 6.7gb.)

A friend that I've known since 7th grade is deteriorating from ALS.  He's only 34 and I can barely understand him anymore.  At this point it is only a matter of time before some thing comes along and finishes the job.  It is depressing.  It makes it hard to go visit him, but I do, because I know that inside his head, he's a fully capable person and still thinking up there.

IE is only better because we've chosen to accept it's rules and code the way it wants us.  Which makes the picture even funnier in my opinion.

Anyone that gives you that kind of trouble doesn't deserve to matter. If they paid attention and followed your posts they'd quickly discover that you've been using the name longer.
