  1. General chatter - discuss anything here

    I think there's a variant in the manual for it. You play as a pure co-op, so obviously it misses the whole paranoia/deception aspect. For me that would make it a bit boring, but it might suit you.
  2. Overwatch - New map "Eichenwalde" out September

    He's being overly dramatic in his choice of words, saying the game is utterly broken and other nonsense. It's a very sensitive thing to balance when all the characters are completely unique. Other shooters suffer from best loadouts (cod4's M16!) and tactics in just the same way, and you either join them, learn to beat them or just enjoy the game despite it. Just shown a mate the game today and he's instantly gone and bought it, it's immediately obvious good this thing is.
  3. Overwatch - New map "Eichenwalde" out September

    Just got this today, amazing! So quick, breezy and satisfying, loving the dwarf the most so far. I think this will be this generation's COD4.
  4. The Witness

    Thinking of getting this on PS4 but I hate spending more than £15 on digital games because they have no resell value. Is this getting a disc release? If not I'll just wait for a sale.
  5. Overcooked - Chaotic co-op cooking

    Immediately bought this thanks to the thread, and I'm usually incredibly frugal. It's got the same vibe as Storage Inc (360 indie game), bloody loved that game.
  6. Bargain buys for everyone.

    Chaos cards has a sale on, great discounts on games including Twilight Struggle (30), Champions of Midguard (30) and Alchemists (22). I got alchemists
  7. Star Wars!

    Won 4, lost 2, finished 18th out of 60. Really pleased with that! Got an alt art Hera pilot card, and won alt art Vader pilot in the raffle too! I beat a triple J list in one of the most tense matches I've played. So many close calls and clever barrel rolls! Those proton rockets were easily worth the 3 points, they were used in 4 of the 6 matches and always made an impact. Love using palp to fly through an asteroid and guarantee safety Can't wait to get into tie defenders now, imperial vets wasn't legal in this tournament.
  8. Star Wars!

    Ooh I forgot low pilot skill makes EU a bit crap, thanks. I've replaced it with proton rockets on the inq. and ion projector on the lambda. That actually seems pretty awesome to me, I'm gonna try it! My reasoning is that my opponents will be hesitant to move in one either of those ships, and I can be more aggressive with them.
  9. Star Wars!

    Regional tournament this Saturday in Norwich. I have hardly been playing recently so I'm thinking of just flying the Chiraneu/Fel list quoted above. At least I'm familiar with it! I just made this as an alternative, I assume people try to kill palp first so the engine upgrade might give some survivability. What do you think? This or Deci / Fel? TIE Interceptor: •Soontir Fel (35) Stealth Device (3) Autothrusters (2) Royal Guard TIE (0) Push The Limit (3) TIE Adv. Prototype: •The Inquisitor (31) Autothrusters (2) TIE/v1 (1) Push The Limit (3) Lambda-Class Shuttle: Omicron Group Pilot (33) Engine Upgrade (4) •Emperor Palpatine (8) Total: 99/100
  10. What are you playing?

    Good answer. I don't see the appeal (I bloody love adding things in my head), but I appreciate why it works for you and the family. My latest play: Lords of Vegas with my parents this evening, worked really well 3 players, the game is just a fun treat dripping in gambling theme (every choice involves some sort of probability). Dad winning was cool, but the main great thing is that he suffers from AP in most games (even sushi go) but the flow of this hardly stopped, and he didn't keep forgetting the rules!
  11. What are you playing?

    I don't get how it can be quicker? Are you guys just bad at maths? You still have to go through each category announcing what you each got, and typing into an app is much slower than jotting it down.

    10% off at 365 games currently with the code "game" Just got specter ops for £27
  13. It's going far too quick if anything though. Look at the time they gave Arya with the Hound, and Brienne with Hedwig compared to everyone just turning up where they need to be this season. Edit: what Timmo said!
  14. Football thread 2015/16 season.

    Lively atmosphere at carrow road last night, loads of positivity, plenty of people staying for the lap of honour. Had a very nice evening and seeing us score 4 goals was fun! Not too fussed about relegation, the club's finances are in great shape, doubt we'll lose many players, I just really hope Alex Neil stays, he can take us straight back up. He gave a really nice honest interview after the game. It sounds like he's considering leaving at the end though Well done to Sunderland.
