  1. Has anyone been playing the new ambush mode in blackout? It's knives, launchers and sniper rifles only. I spotted you could play it solo yesterday so I hopped in, and I found it great fun. I've had the most ever kills in a match, and came second place in my second and fourth game, so hopefully I can get a few wins out of it. I've only won normal blackout once, I normally get nowhere or top 10, but here I feel like I'm in with a better shout. Has anyone played it and what did you think? EDIT : aaaaand it's gone, the most fun I've ever had in blackout and it's gone again.

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    I finally managed to get the minimalist achievement - beat the game with a 5 card deck or less. This was an infinite deck in the end, and as I was removing more and more cards I found that it was going infinite on turn three, then turn two, then turn one. If I'd come up against anybody but time eater I would have beaten the boss on turn one as well, but such is life. I only managed to remove the last card in the second to last room, which was a question mark that ended up as a shop. Quite pleased with that one, it's taken a bloody age.
  3. There seems to be some glitch when you spray one of your tags, it's like a permanent spray can in the player's hand. I've seen it happen in multiplayer a few times as well.

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Wow! I just got the speed climber achievement after watching a youtube video for some tips. I had a couple of decent runs yesterday, but you tend to get pummeled eventually because you aim to exhaust all your defence cards. This time I got enough strength gain to just keep pushing forwards, only healing at rest sites, never upgrading (I also got the energy relic which means you can't upgrade any more, which forced my hand) I got through to time eater as the last boss, it's probably the only one I could have beaten, and I thought that I'd taken too long, so had mentally chalked it down to being another practice run. When I killed him, the achievement pinged up, and when I checked the run history I got a nice surprise. Yay! I've also been trying to get the achievements for 'kill a boss on turn 1' and 'beat the game with 5 cards or less'. You need an infinite deck, and getting that much removal is a nightmare. The deck doesn't really work properly until it goes infinite, and it's really hard getting it over the hump of being nearly an infinite deck. Hopefully I'll get those soon, but it's proving very tricky.
  5. I was playing last night and got killed, and the game spawned me right behind the person who shot me, literally in my sights. I think the spawning in this is terrible, you can't stand still for 5 seconds without it shoehorning a player in right behind you. I'm still enjoying it for the most part though.
  6. I've got gold on both of the other DMR's and I'm currently stuck on the AUG so this might be exactly what I was looking for. I mainly play hardcore so the swordfish is godlike, and I'm struggling to adjust to the AUG. I'll definitely give this a try.

    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    Factorio will never be in the sale, the developers have said that they won't reduce the price. It's well worth the money as it stands though, I've played hundreds of hours, it's fantastic.
  8. I think the idea is stretching out the match for more kills and more xp, but I might be wrong. Need to have a look at the medals screen and see what xp you get for doing what. I'm happy enough to hoover up all the tags, I'm always mindboggled when I see my team running straight past tags that deny an enemy kill. It's 50 points towards a streak just sitting there

    Brian Eno’s Ambient Works

    I've never really got Neroli either, I think I fundamentally don't understand what he's trying to say, or what it's purpose is. I'm sure I'm missing something? Have a look for thursday afternoon, that's one of my favourite Eno albums. It's one piece just over an hour long, and doesn't really change a great deal over the course of it, but there are subtle changes which you could possibly call sections. I usually listen to it on long flights, it's definitely my music for airports.

    Thanks very much, it was all done in reason. The synths are the thor and the europa, and the shimmering high frequency stuff is the wineglass sound in the klang sampler. There's also a mellotron sample which is the strings which appear halfway through to the right of the stereo. I thought the mellotron really made it sound a bit too much like Brian eno's thursday afternoon, but nobody's mentioned that so far, which is good. The VHS plugin is called audio degradation suite, it's a Reaktor plugin so some kind soul made it and uploaded it to the reaktor library for people to download for nothing. The settings I used are dialled back quite a lot, you can really mangle audio with it, but I decided to be brave and just shoved it straight on the mix bus and worked around what it was doing.

    I made a new ambient track, and even made a video to go with it. I used a VHS tape compression plugin to make the whole mix sound slightly mangled, like it was taped off the telly in 1988, and I'm pleased with the way it came out. The video isn't tremendously exciting, but I recorded it with my phone the last time I was in Japan, and I thought it fitted quite nicely.

    It looks like they've realised, this is gone now, which is a real shame. I just got given £30 of amazon vouchers as a leaving present from work, and this would have been perfect. Ho hum!

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    I was playing the daily today, and there are some crazy combos you can pull off. The starting deck is all the rare cards, so the fun stuff is already in the deck. I ended up using bullet time to use burst on nightmare three times, so I ended up with a hand full of glass knives. Believe it or not, the enemy died this turn
