    Anthem - February 22nd

    I hardly ever preorder games and I hardly ever buy digital. I’ve already paid for a digital copy of this.... I don’t see any point in playing it until a month or two down the line. By which time it will probably be £20.
  2. I approve of this change in your playstyle ! Honestly can't wait to play this more.
  3. Also, when skinning you also get meat which you can cook. Your satchel only has room for 5 of each type of meat which is why you'll be getting the message you can't carry anymore. I think you can upgrade the capacity of the satchel but I've never bothered to do that.

    The bad gaming parent thread

    My kids are a bit older than the average in this thread (13 & 10) but both are turning into pretty serious gamers. I'm so proud. At their Mum's they have the spare bedroom with a PS4 for each of them. They used to argue constantly over who's turn it was when they had to share so we took the easy way out. Fortnite is the one thing they play the most and they have a ridiculous amounts of wins each. Around 150 for the youngest and 300 for the eldest. They've both carried me to victory on more than one occasion. The eldest also plays a fair bit of Black Ops 4 and loves pointing out he has more blackout wins than me.... He also plays Rainbow Six Siege, although I think him and his friends spend most of their time team killing each other when they play that rather than actually trying to win. They have some not so friendly rivalry going on between them and often rib each other over who is the biggest sweat (sweaty try hard). Yes, I am a terrible parent.

    The Kickstarter Group Thread

    I'm with you on that revlob! I honestly don't understand the obsession with mini heavy KS games. The majority are very average games sold with more minis than you can shake a stick it.

    What are you playing?

    I've been lucky enough to have played Wingspan a couple of times in the past week. It's really rather good. The production quality is unbelievable and the artwork is fantastic. If you like birds that is. If you have an irrational fear of birds it's probably not so great. It plays really well. At it's heart it's a engine builder with minimal interaction but the engine building is really satisfying and the action choices all interlock with each other so the choices you are making are always tricky but meaningful. Playing it again tonight and I can't wait to give it another go. Also played the new expansion for Great Western Trail last week. If you like GWT then I think it's a must have expansion. Like all the best expansions it adds depth without significantly increasing the complexity.

    Best airplane table games

    They aren't exactly the same. The base game is identical in each but both editions have optional rules that differ from one another. The blue edition adds rivers and lakes and red adds meteors and volcanoes. Red can be quite destructive and although i havent played blue with rivers and lakes it certainly sounds like stuff is less likely to go up in flames!
  9. It's a a rather lovely edition too. Picked it up at Essen last year.
  10. I stopped using mine a month or so ago. It was still working OK but I was getting really sore hands after playing and I think the paddles were causing pain in the tendons in my wrists. I'm not playing any less and have no issues using the standard xbox controller now. I don't know if it was the extra weight of the controller or the paddles (possibly both) but my hands grew to hate using it.

    What are you playing?

    I would expect you are missing out on a great deal of the game by not playing against over people as it's essentially a race game (first to 20 points) with worker placement. Both those mechanics work great with others but not so great solo. Card draw can be a bit swingy but you do tend to draw a lot which evens out the luck element. You also need to get a worker on the right spot on the board to play them so there's a good balance between collecting cards, playing them and forgoing other actions to do both of those things. FWIW it's one of my favourite games and not because of the theme or quality of the pieces

    Keyforge

    The starter box only comes with quick start rules anyway. Full rules can be grabbed in a pdf here: https://www.keyforgegame.com/

    Keyforge

    The starter boxed game comes with 2 decks that are the same in every copy and then 2 unique decks. The starter decks have extra text on them to explain the keywords.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    1352 hours of OW..... 911 hours of Rainbow Six Siege. I really wish I hadn't looked those numbers up.
