  1. @Fondue Just to expand on this a bit, you get one key from passing up a relic in a chest, it's key or relic. You get another from a campfire, but you have to sacrifice healing or upgrading to get the key and the third comes from a particular elite. When you see it on the map it's got shimmery black flames around it, and it's tougher than normal. If you get all three keys...
  2. I've had the most success with frost and claw/blizzard based decks. If you can get echo form running, it's easy mode usually, and things can get really mad if you've got echo form and creative AI.
  3. On PC it's in statistics off the main menu, and then run history. I'm guessing it's the same on switch.
  4. I've finally managed to beat the heart, my first kill. I've been close loads of times, but it all came together this time. I got searing blow on the second floor, so built around upgrading that as much as possible, and ended up with 11 upgrades, hitting for 100+. I found a headbutt for bringing it back along with spot weakness and limit break for strength. Ironically I used lightning bottle on spot weakness so I always had it first turn, but it doesn't attack first turn, so I didn't manage to gain any strength for the whole fight. I also found an early feed, and had 136 health by the end. I had a potion belt, full potions, and an entropic brew, so potentially had 9 potions to play, but only ended up playing 3. Very pleased!
  5. It's not a steam key but I have a spare black ops 4 key from this month's humble bundle. First PM gets it, thread/forum regulars only please
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
