  1. LETTEN US BEGINNEN! But yeah you UK folk are an odd bunch. Zero issues with the game's regional dialect myself. I think it was the same when The VVitch came out; loads of people disliking it because the characters spoke they way they did, you know people from 17th century New England would sound? THAT SURE IS WEIRD! I'm not too sure I understand what's odd about asking if the one thing I disliked about the demo was rampant throughout the entire game, or restricted (as I had hoped). Thanks to @Mogster and @Mitchell for the confirmation I needed. I picked it up and really pleased that I did. I just finished recruiting everyone today, done a bunch of chapter 1 side quest stuff, and unlocked all the shrines that I wanted. I got really, really lucky with some early Cait skills so my main party is of a good level and I'm just about to hit Therions chapter 2 main quest. My pary at the moment is made up of Therion who is a 31 Thief / Hunter, Olberic who is a 31 Warrior / Merchant, Ophilia who is a 29 Cleric / Dancer (which I feel a bit guilty about, I'm on this holy pilgrimage and dancing on the side?) and finally Cyrus who is a 30 Scholar / Apothecary. I'm sure there are far better combinations once support skills have been learned. (Can you only equip support skills from the secondary job you have equipped, or is it a case of once you have learned it, you can equip it regardless of job?) The battle system feels really familiar due to putting hundreds of hours in to Bravely Default and Bravely Second, although I can't help but feel spoiled from Bravely Second where grinding was made much easier by the automation options. The music is just gorgeous, and I think the game has a lot of charm about it. I'm really pleased that my judgey second demo impressions were all wrong and you never know, H'aanit has time yet to win me over.
  2. Can anyone confirm the extent of the olde language in the full game? Is H'aanit the worst of the bunch? I don't recall it being as thick in the original demo when playing Primrose, if the other 6 characters are on Primrose level then I could perhaps live with it.
  3. Thank you for taking a noob along again last night, I learned a lot. I learned that I still can't parachute. I learned that hitting F instead of M is still a bad idea. I learned that when you are last man standing and hiding in a corner, whatever direction Rob tells you to look in, you'll get attacked from the total opposite side. And had it reinforced that vehicles are death traps.
  4. Gimme a shout if you wanna noob team up (edit to say I'm on PC version!)! The sounds are awesome. I kept getting freaked out whenever I heard Nate reload or move last night. I was asking “was that you?!” every two seconds.
  5. Thank you to @Nathan Windfor showing me the ropes in a couple of duo matches, loads of fun and I obviously have a long way to go before I'm ready for serious competing! I learned some valuable lessons. Like erm, don't accidentally hit F when viewing the map whilst discussing where to go. Parachuting is actually pretty hard. Vehicles are bad, necessary, but they get you dead. When red and blue circles meet and you're caught in the purple, that's also pretty bad. Finally, probably my most valuable lesson, I learned how fantastic Nate is at driving under pressure. Probably our most epic end was crashing in to walls and over rocky roads only to be taken out by a full on explosion.

    Critical Role - The new campaign

    I couldn't find the option to pledge the £1 to back, did you pre-order @MDY? I'm fairly happy with the guest announcements, I can't help but feel a little disappointed that we aren't seeing a return of an old and familiar guest though. (Episode 25 spoilers and thoughts on campaign direction)

    What are you playing?

    I started my new job on Monday, I've been assigned a buddy and I had a catch up lunch with her in my calendar for today. We were talking about the weekend, and I mentioned that I would probably head over to my sisters to play some boardgames. She got really excited and for a moment I thought, ooooooooh this could lead to something. Sadly she went on to describe how her and her partner played connect 4. I smiled encouragingly and nodded appropriately. Maybe someday, I might take in Rhino Hero for our next buddy lunch and take it from there. Anyway, the point of my post. Pandemic, season 1! March and April under our belts. Kind of. March game and board spoilers: April game and board spoilers:
  8. Aww man, am not looking forward to Sen’s. I lost a ton of souls there last time. I sniped the snake magic casters all pro like the first time. Got way up to the top and that really narrow platform with the swinging axes psyched me out big time and I fell. On the run back up, I forgot about the sorcerer round the corner. I gathered my breath, and took my first step toward recovering my souls. BAM! Knocked off. The level of my stupidity just had me face palming for a solid ten minutes. Are the snakes really resistant to magic or something? After spending a good while helping people out on Gargoyles and joining the Sun Bros, I spent souls on the Crest and grabbed the ember from in there. But lacking in blue titanite to actually do anything with it just yet. The blue golems at hydra are actually quite difficult for me as I barely do any damage to them so they take a while to get down. I also decided to level up to around 25, and feel like I might wanna move on. Maybe down to Quelaag next.
  9. Quietly praising the sun and decorating with Twinkly lights because who says Dark Souls can't be pretty! Duty calls, BRB sun!
  10. As far as I’m aware, those black knights should be a one time spawn. Once you knock him out the first time, he should stay down. Having so so much fun right now absolutely wrecking the gargoyles with people. I got the ring that you suggested Broker, and I’m two shotting these little bastards that I couldn’t get by all those years ago. Feels good man.
  11. Definitely interested in trying that build at some point @Uncle Nasty, looks really sweet But I think I might wait until I'm a bit more experienced as I still need to work on getting good! My Broker sorcerer is underway on the PS4. I've just levelled her as far as SL15. I'm going to stick around that level for a bit and help people out with Taurus and Gargoyles. I got her Longsword to Magic +5, killed the Hyrda, freed Dusk for the crown, freed Griggs for the magic and going to farm the souls for the ring. (hopefully by helping others!) I got a funky little crab dude that wasn't in my last game, is that an online thing? I was killing the Balder Knights and was sprayed with a volley of arrows that scared me senseless. And here is little Tuts a short while after, rocking the crown and Oolacile Ivory Catalyst Aside from the Golden Golem, things definitely feel a lot easier this time round! Probably a combination of feeling more confident and knowing where I'm going, and magic just wrecking everything in my path. So good.
  12. Okie dokie! She feels so much lighter than my stocky warrior. She’s zooming around like sonic. I think I love her already.
  13. @BrokerSorry, this might be a totally idiotic question and it’s not me questioning your suggestion, more so I understand what I’m aiming for. Is the 60 int so that the damage from my weapon scales or is there a particular weapon / spell that is going to require 60 int? I’m just about to start my PS4 sorcery playthrough, think I have decided on starting out with a Longsword as I liked the move set enough.

    Episode 25 Spoilers. Also, those minis are amazing, I really want a set to proxy in for board games.
  15. Amazing, that's incredibly helpful, thank you @Broker!
