    Thanks moose

    Cheers, I'll take a look at those. I could cope with just being short sighted but going long sighted too is making it far more difficult to paint than it should be. Getting old sucks.

    Painting Tips

    So after about a year of not painting I decided to give it a go again recently. I think my eyes are too fucked though. I've always been really shorted sighted (-6 or so) which doesn't help with fine detail work as my glasses make everything a little more distant than it actually is. I can paint without my glasses on for short periods but it tends to make me go googly eyed and ends in a headache. On top of that I've started to go a bit long sighted now too.... So I can't hold anything too close now as it goes out of focus. Anyone in a similar situation? Would one of those fancy pants lights with a built in magnifying glass help? I'm loathe to spend too much money as I'm not much of a painter but at the same time I'd be sad to completely give it up as a hobby.

    So I gave up on this. Got to the bottom of blightown and had put around 20 hours into it. I stopped playing when it suddenly hit me that I wasn’t actually having any fun. There’s very much a sense of achievement in making progress and that is satisfying but it all felt a bit too close to work rather than entertainment.

    Grouping up is definitely worth it as it’s so much better co-op. Scaling takes care of any level differences. Best way to group up is for the lowest level person to be the leader and invite the others. Everyone joins the leaders instance of DC so if you’re lower level than everyone else being the leader means you won’t end up doing missions or any regions out of sequence.

    I think that's a real strength of the game. The huge variety of things you can do and all of them still see you making progress. Perhaps if you're the sort of person who obsesses over 100% completing something that could be an issue but for the rest of us it's a wonderful pick and mix. Admittedly those choices pretty much all boil down to shooting badmen in the face but most games do don't they?

    If you go into your inventory then it's on one of the other tabs. You have to RB twice (i think) on the Xbox to get to it. You'll then see a list of all the materials. You get receiver parts from guns and fabric from clothing. You can also increase how much of them you can hold with perks. I've got to full on receiver parts myself but have the perk which gives a chance of receiving rarer components when your deconstruct so have still been doing it anyway as those ones can still fit in my inventory. edit: Crafting isn't entirely pointless low level. I've made the assault rifle you get fairly early a couple of times as I really like using it.

    It's not huge at present. Around 15 of us I think. Saying that though I played with a couple of lovely forum people over the weekend and it was a ton of fun. More often than not I'm playing with Drew and possibily sprite (if she can tear herself away from the gym and/or her cat) but there is plenty of space and opportunites for us all to play together. We probably just need to be a bit more proactive in making it happen. I'm always up for grouping up with people so if anyone sees me on just throw me a invite and we can kill many dudes together the TLDR answer Wahwah is: 1)Buy it. It's amazing. 2)There is defintely a handful of forum people willing to play together and space in groups to play with them.

    Its called The Ronin. Think you can only join once you unlock the Clan Officer which is around lvl 10 or thereabouts.

    I mostly use Thirsty Meeples for my board game needs. As cheap as anywhere else and as I work in Oxford I can collect from their cafe which means I don't pay any postage fees. They also do a loyalty scheme so every now and again I get a £10 voucher to spend. Bargain.

    I don't wont to be at work today. I want to be at home shooting more of the bad men. This game has really got it's hooks into me. I haven't felt as obsessed with a game as I am with this in quite some time. All the main missions I've done so far have been superb and the open world gameplay is a joy too. You can set a waypoint to go to a mission and 30 minutes later you've just about got there as 3-4 things have kicked off and distracted you on the way there. So much fun to play.

    No, thank you! This is the best co-op game I’ve played in ages. So much fun when you group up with other people and blast the hell out of computer dudes.

    Any of the Xbox crowd about today? I’m on this afternoon and eve and would be good to group up for a bit. I’m still only level 11 so early game stuff.
