I'm not sure what's up with Tony, I don't see how he thinks he can reconcile all the lies he's been telling.  His jury vote status is getting worse by the minute.

Right. The only way he could possibly have a chance of winning is if it's just him and Kass going to the end.

This has turned out to be such a crazy season. Its amazing how this show can still deliver.

Wow, so I just saw that the PS4 beat the XB1 in the new NPD. I seriously didn't see that coming with all the Titanfall hype and (rather desperate looking) firesales and bundling going on at various retailers for the XB1 as of late.

You mean Titan-fail?  I kid!  I'm still buying the sequel on PS4.

A warning about the DLC: The Falcon and the Unicorn

As much as I loved Legacy (which was quite a lot) this DLC is shit. I'm going to spolierize this as it speaks to the initial part of the DLC but honestly if you were thinking of getting the DLC I would recommend just spoiling a bit of the start here to know what you're getting in to. So here we go:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Know all those cool weapons, armor, and items you fought so hard for? They get taken away at the very start of the DLC. You're basically left fighting with a few normal weapons/armor, and very few potions. And you have to fight against very difficult monsters where the only thing that really does any harm is your magic since you're weapons are crap. Plus because your armor is crap they monsters you pretty easily. And because you have hardly any potions to start with you'll be saving them and resting after each battle. But likely shit will go wrong in the battle so you have to re-load and try again anyways (remember the re-loads in the game take about 30+ seconds).

And to top this off when they finally gave me some weapons they only provided 2 swords. Well I have one sword/shield wielder and then one sword dual wielder. But they provided like 4 spears. I still don't have a second sword for my duel wielder.

Now if that wasn't bad enough after slugging your way through all these monsters (which get more difficult) you have to do a boss battle where he can kill you in one shot. Plus he's paired with two of the more difficult monsters that will feeblemind your casters - so if all your casters that can remove feeblemind get it, that's it for the battle as you sure as hell not winning it with melee or without heals. You do not get potions to remove feeblemind - they were taken away.

Now the other thing to warn you about is the very start of this DLC after you lose your weapons you have to make your way through a dungeon, which is a bit of a puzzle. However if you make a wrong move you are instantly dead. And you have to re-load. And you make a LOT of mistakes. Each mistake means an annoying 30+ second reload!

So I don't know who thought up the difficulty and the general annoyance of the start of this DLC but its terrible. I'm fine for some difficulty but none of these changes provide any enjoyment or sense of accomplishment. It basically seems to be put in there to annoy and wear you down. This is supposed to be a fun game and they lost sight of that.
I like a good challenge, but that doesn't sound remotely fun.

So I revisited this and was finally able to push forward past the initial area. This is spoilery but may help get past this section if stuck.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Basically if you're a might based party or 2 of your party members are might based your going to have a hell of a time. I was stuck on the first boss as he would kill me and feeblemind my casters which required a reload. However I found that buffing myself, with whatever made sense, before entering the battle helped some. After doing that it took me 3 or 4 more tries to finally kill the boss.

But then its on the next area with the same difficult fights. And if you don't have the fire spell to protect you from sleep then forget. Thankfully I had that. But the next boss battle is even more difficult than the first as he'll one shot the entire party before you even reach him. Again it's pre-buffing and a lot of luck to beat him.

Thankfully after that you get your shit back so the game can become one again enjoyable.

But even with what I know now I still wouldn't recommend the DLC. Its just way too unforgiving.

But, unless they pull off another Batman: Arkham Asylum, I'm not interested.


Beenox couldn't pull off Arkham Asylum if it was fixed to the wall with Scotch tape.  I thought Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions was absolutely terrible, and they've only gotten worse with every successive version.

Thankfully the series is picking up, and has enough clout behind it to keep it airing despite the ratings. Still, I want to see how those other well known characters are taking it.

I read somewhere that it's almost certain to get another season, probably more on the strength of its synergy with the Marvel movies than on its own ratings. I hope it won't become yet another show that was canceled just as it started to get good.

The Spiderman movie franchise is owned by Sony pictures, who approves any licensing too. But honestly it may just be technical problems combined with rushed development to meet the film's release deadline.

But, unless they pull off another Batman: Arkham Asylum, I'm not interested.

Since the new update focuses on the Survivor mode, I went back to working on the Death Cube. Here are some more images, all are click to enlarge.

First step is a doozy. Be sure to switch on your jetpack.


Looking back up the shaft. All interfaces with corridors and doors are highlighted in yellow.

Jeremiah is the one I've been calling Doofus, but apparently Jimmy was right - so much for my theory that LJ might win.

I'm not sure what's up with Tony, I don't see how he thinks he can reconcile all the lies he's been telling.  His jury vote status is getting worse by the minute.
