  1. As its a replay the same thing over and over to make the numbers go bigger type game this has fallen by the wayside now im playing an MMO with endless numbers to make bigger.
  2. As I said I am enjoying it, it feels a bit like the starting blocks and im looking forward to seeing the first expansion. The crafting is quite satisfying, but I find it a bit slow on the woodcutting and a bit annoying that you need iron for EVERYTHING. Ive stupidly levellled up all the crafting skills at once, which is a bit too much work, and im not sure it should even be possible. Id like it if it forced people to specialise a bit more perhaps ?
  3. this sums it up quite concisely. My main beef is that it does the same old thing where it makes you "the hero" and sends you off into what is essentially a linear RPG sotry (ie the afformentioned themepark) but it just doesnt wokr in an MMO as EVERY other person is also the hero. I feel like these games would benefit much more from being more like EVE online where you are just a player , and you do stuff in the world. It has elements of this, for example the corrupted portals spawn across the map and you can form a group and go and destroy them. The economy is also totally player driven which is nice as is the PVP. So it seems incongruous to me to have a not very interesting saviour of the world type story line levelred in there. Id be quite happy being a nother minion recruited into the soul wardens (if I wanted) and going up through th ranks, a bit like the faction ranking etc.
  4. True , the trees also look gorgeous I levelled up to 35 in the end which lets me build the storage chest. To my horror I found that Trophies require level 75 and I moved on to other things for a while. I quite enjoyed mining the Iron and Oil, levelled up my mining to 100 in the process and had these amusing interations with the other folks trying the same thing. One guy was calling me a loser every time he beat me to a node. So I dragged a mob onto him, the mob hits him breaking him out of his animation and I swing my pick at his Iron node and land the last strike to mine it 🤣
  5. I was looking at crafting furniture. The item I want needs level 50 in Furntiure crafting. An optimal path to getting this takes.... 6 hours Thats 6 hours of mining and chopping trees, assuming no one has skunked you to the ores already.
  6. You respawn , as the game goes on the timers get longer, at least for the defenders. The Wars last 30 minutes. you have to cap 3 control points, then smash in the catle doors and capture the castle , then you claim the region. So far defenders have been succesful in everyone one that ive seen, but the last one we only won by the skin of our teeth. Edit: Oh and the whole thing is on a 30 minute timer.
  7. Im still enjoying this, although I fully acknowledge its mainly because I am a sucker for this kind of thing. Melon is not wrong when he says its the same old grind. It's not done anything really innovative but the formula has been polished pretty well. The pvp does add some adidtional interest to it as well. I've modified my build to be a pvp build that works in pve , although not as effectivly in some cases. So i can drop what i am doing and run to defend or attack a fort which breaks things up quite nicely.
  8. Nope I just picked the lowest pop server when i signed up, its become medium population since then , but no queues even at peak hours (so far).
  9. I must say Ive never queued to get in even once. Still enjoying this very much, making the push for level 30. Spending a lot of time crafting my steel worktools and better bags. Its same shit different day but its done very well and looks gorgeous in places. I was VERY dissapointed with the opening beach area so have been presently suprised since then. Managed to squeeze in some pvp which is quite fun, it shoudl be interesting when we push properly for another groups region.
  10. I dunno Ive done the first raid, a PvP, a portal smashing seige and been in a crowded town getting about 20fps. I dont know how much else its got to throw. Some of the reports said it happened to people as soon as they openend the menu?
  11. This is terrifying ! Ive played this a bunch over the weekend and feel like I've been playing russian roulette without knowing it! That smoking card in the video looks like the same one I have ! II cant beleive this went out with this bug still in there! Saying that Im hooked now, so ive dialled my power back to 90% im guessing that as Ive played to level 23 already im probably ok?

    Squid Game

    Pretty compelling this! Despite being a slow burn on occasion it really worked and had me on the edge of my seat in several places. I think a second season could work but it would be a different beast entirely.
  14. I felt like this adaption did some odd things with the original story that didnt really make much sense to me, but Ill be honest im basing my remembering from enjoying Arthurian Legend as a kid. It needlessly confusticated some stuff, and lost the impact of some other parts - not to mention throwing some imagery into the trailer that was pretty disengenuous to boot!
  15. I found this unsatisfying and quite tedious. Dissapointed.
  16. Another vote for Oatly Barrista. Damn good on Alpen as well.
  17. I also just finished Lightchaser by P Hamilton and another guy. I enjoyed ... half of it but it was possibly tainted by Hamiltons Touch 🤣 It's hard to tell in a cowritten book but I detected some of the old trademarks in there. Other than that I enjoyed the premise and the book, even if it felt a bit abrupt.
  18. I enjoyed returning to Revalation Space , but not as much as I hoped I would. It started out very promisingly but was let down ultimatley by being a "book in the gaps" I think. Overall some good bits and some less good bits and a possbily anticlimactic ending. Worth a read if you are a fan of the series.
  19. Coming out of the cinema after the original Matrix was something else. Felt totally shell shocked, as if reality had actually been altered somehow.
  20. Tried 1-1 on extreme it wasnt to bad. Thought I'd try the recon class so I dialled it back to intense, tried out the flame thrower for the first time too. Unfortunatley... we had another flamer dude in our squad and he had ... shall we say ... very little restraint 🤣 Honestly I was in tears of laughter, he barbequed both of us simulataneously at least three times. It got to the point that whenever aliens spawned me and the other guy were hiding behind doors or corners while this maniac went to work. The host quit after he got burned alive for the umpeenth time and the revive didnt arrive in time.
  21. Ill be back later with my shattered rose tinted glasses 😛
  22. The wiki has puplished and chronoligical https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal_Asher I think I read them in published order by series, so all of Agent Cormac then Spattterjay series etc.
  23. Finished the campaign (on normal difficulty) I think overall my original critique stands, it's a mediocre linear shooter. It's a distinctly unimagianitive affair and lacks almost everything I want from an aliens game, despite being full of Aliens 😕 That being said it is better at higher difficulties , and Im looking forward to trying the next one up from intense, I think it might be where the game starts to shine a bit. The higher difficulty distracts from the essantially humdrum game. Having to worry about team damage makes the combat more interesting. That being said I am still playing it, I am a sucker for Aliens and for unlock progression 😕 And I have had some fun games.
