Now I just need to read through the rest of this thread to figure out where to get the free books from and how to get PDFs on here.  This could actually be highly useful for keeping board game aids/supplements/rules with me.

For PDFs you can do it a couple of ways:

- Email it to your kindle.  Amazon will convert PDFs, Word Docs, HTML files, etc for a .15 charge and send it to the Kindle.  They do the conversion very fast (ie less than 10 minutes).  However results may vary on how the formatting comes out, especially if you are using something with a lot of tables like a source book.

- Use one of a million free conversion tools online.  I'm quite fond of Calibre myself but I haven't tried it with PDFs.  Then just hook the Kindle to your PC and drop it into the documents folder. 

Actually, Amazon offers a free conversion as well.  You will just need to load it onto the Kindle

I'm really looking forward to this since it has the potential to let me have fun playing music that I really enjoy.

I agree with what Pete Rock says about Neville.

I also think it is a bad choice to leave out issues with the last generation at Hogsworth.... James, Lilly, and Severus especially, but Serious and Remus as well.  It seems to me that missing those sections really puts a damper on motivations and characterizations.


+1 I understand leaving some thing, but alot of those plot points should have been saved

One of these days I need to get around to seeing these movies.  I'm probably the last person left on the planet that has neither read a Harry Potter book nor seen a Harry Potter movie.

Read the books first.  I love the movies but only as accessories to the books.

Just played the demo on the PS3-oh man this game is awesome!! How many maps does the game come with?  $15 bucks is pretty tempting.

Three maps included with the Coral Sea Challenge offering up a fourth

I agree 100%.  If every other game I have works I am not messing around with port forwarding for this game.


Agreed.  Did play a few games last night and I had no problem connecting to a server. Test will be connecting to a server with friends already playing

I'm convinced this game cheats even on easy. Playing a Skaven club for a championship I had the game 2-1.  A skaven passer not only made two dodge rolls to make it onto my side of the pitch, but made a hail Mary pass to a gutter runner being guarded by three adjacent players.  Not only did the gutter runner score, but he made all three dodge rolls.

Ah yes... my favorite teammate. Especially when there is friendly fire.   Unfortunately, my experience with the demo so far is this  (about 10 - 15 times no less):

Does this little gem of a note go away when I get the full version?

Played some quick matces to get th hang of the game.  Made a Human team since I've read they are the easiest and most  balanced team to learn the game with.  So my 40K Black Templar team has been born!!

and most of them were already answered in this thread slywink

At any rate it IS still a bit of a pain to get everyone together but we do it anyway.  They supposedly fixed it a few moments ago but I won't be able to test it until some of you guys get on.

I'm always ready to squad up with some of you, the game is far more fun when you can coordinate with friends than guess what strangers are doing.  Using the Xbox Live Party Chat makes this pretty easy even if you have trouble getting in the same squad.

+1 on party chat being more reliable to the in game system

Lastly, Combined Arms in this game is awesome.  Once we get some good pilots I can see us kicking much arse!!!
