    Far Cry 3.

    Now I can see what all the fuss on twitter was about. "This island isn't on any map" ... "Yay! Tequila bar"
  2. I went back to Crimson Alliance. I was still struggling hugely with the difficultly level, and only 4 or so levels in. About to give up when I discovered I somehow switched the difficulty to Hard! Switched back to Normal, and it's fun again
  3. Loch Fyne is OK, no one is pretending it's the best chain of restaurants in the world, but it fits nicely in that gap between cheap and cheerful and a "proper" formal restaurant. "fine cuisine prices" I don't know where Bruce has sampled fine cuisine, but I suspect if it was at Loch Fyne's prices it really wasn't that fine.
  4. Great post Bruce, keep it up
  5. If it's anything like Fallout 3 hopefully it won't matter, I maxed out my level in that, and still played for another 100 odd hours
  6. I couldn't think of anywhere else to post this http://louderthanwar...o-lakefest-2012 Worst festival line up ever? Reef EMF Toploader The Levellers Dodgy Chesney Hawkes I mean ... just ...

    The Mars Volta

    Sounds like a bad, half finished Grinderman track
  8. Can you buy a house or have a little base to stash stuff in this? THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

    The Flashbulb

    It's nice and I like it. But "nice" is the best word I can use to describe it. After about 10 tracks or so it just all sounds the same, and blends into the background. Lacks focus. He needs to concentrate on the stronger ideas rather than pump out 25 short tracks, they sometimes feel a bit half-finished Still it's good to have on in the background, and better than a lot of shit around at the mo
  10. Finished. Bloody brilliant from start to finish, loved it. It's criminal that I could pick this up for £8 new
  11. There's a serious absence of buzz or info about it. The BGG discussion for the game amounts to a whopping 4 threads Oh well
  12. I wasn't that fussed - but now I really want "Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre" not just coz it's called "Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre" and I can tell everyone I've just bought a new game "Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre" but also because it looks quite good fun At first I wasn't sure about the art style - but it's grown on me, reminds me of the John Detrich's 'custom culture' stuff a little
  13. I really want to make up a set of Dungeon Plungin' now Argh! Randomly generated dungeons just like Advanced Heroquest WANT WANT!
  14. The Pathfinder SRD (basically all the rules without any of the pictures and fluff) is available as a PDF here http://www.d20pfsrd.com/extras/downloads/PFRPG_SRD_Monsters.pdf?attredirects=0&d=1 It's effectively a free version of the core Pathfinder book
  15. That's my experience too, The game just never. stops. chucking. shit. at. you.

    This Is My Jam

    I'm all over this shit http://thisismyjam.com/JoyrexJ9
  17. Good sess at LoB last night, played a quick game of Biblios, a simple card game with a clever auction mechanic and pretty cards and a nice "ohh it's like a book" box. Followed by 2 great games of Quarriors, I think I've managed to convert 3 more people to the game, everyone was gushing how great it was at the end Started a 4 player game of Dungeon Run - this was far better than I was expecting after my disappointment with the solo game. It comes alive with lots of players. Lots of stupid stuff going on, felt quite chaotic and often silly, but in a good way (not in a Munchkin way) In end we were running out of time so we laid the boss tile before it was supposed to be drawn and decided to gang up on it. All four of us assisting the Orc player resulted in him rolling 17 attack dice which was absurd. We called it a night shortly after that (without finishing properly), but I really enjoyed it. It's not the fairest and possibly the not the most balanced game you'll play but it's definitely tick's the boxes for a lightwieght, quick(ish), dungeon-crawl EDIT: Fuck - realised I'd misread the rules on blocking attacks & we were doing it wrong big time. Oh well!
  18. "Porsche...There is no substitute" Cunt
  19. Next Tuesday's London On Board meet is dice themed and titled "Die, Die My Darling" http://www.meetup.co...vents/49314312/ Well it made me chuckle!
  20. It's more of an issue of "lets compare everything with quests and swords to Skyrim" It's as retarded as comparing Half-Life 2 and Battlefield 3, just because they have guns in
  21. After forcing myself through about 60% of the terrible 40K: Space Marine, which was slowly eroding my faith in video-games, I decided to pack it in and try this instead FUCK YES! IT'S BRILLIANT! Just what I needed, I couldn't stop playing. It's fun, varied, well designed - in fact the exact opposite of Space Marine
  22. Only 1 point worse than Fallout 3, the greatest RPG of all time. Not bad.
  23. Listening to a lot of black metal today. For reasons I don't understand, most of my favourite BM acts are from France (Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord) and this cheery lot - Otargos. It goes absolutely mental at 4:15. Love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJje1dKv36Y
  24. 8/10 from Eurogamer http://t.co/ozqo0xzV
