Re: recommend me something! (and my BGG collection)

I have the Summoner Wars iOS app. It LOOKS like luck plays too big a factor in it for me. I've heard of a few of the other games but never played them or seen them being played.

Sorry, not much use.

I think this'll take you to my list, not updated recently aside from me quickly rating the games already on there.

Re: GOG Fall Sale

Shadow of Mordor is 25% off. Didn't that just come out a month ago?

Yes, and I want it. It looks awesome. But at this point I'm going to wait for the Christmas sale.

Too much other stuff right now.

Re: GOG Fall Sale

I've played a bit of multilayer Warband. It was very good, except I suck at melee. But it's completely different from any other game I played. Great fun.

That said I never got into like I have shooters. Probably for lack of buddies to play [more]

Re: Tough choice but...

Yeah, maybe it is an odd choice but this season the personalities didn't grab me. I've watched as over the years they've gone for sensational contestants rather than good ones. I didn't see any here and wasn't willing to give this season a chance. [more]

Tough choice but...

The most recent two episodes were sitting there on our PVR unwatched. I asked my wife if we wanted to watch them and after discussing who we like and who we would root for (basically we only liked the fireman who is married to the cop) we decided to [more]

Re: Federalism

There are many things wrong with this NDP policy. First off, it wouldn't "create spaces". That's done only when new daycares open. That'll only happen if the providers can get more space or "for profits" take over (they haven't [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

Um, that's about 6 hours of tutorial videos?!

Maybe I shouldn't have bought this game...

Re: Divinity Original Sin - Further impressions

Okay, I'm less mad now.

I only needed to slaughter the goblins who I thought I had managed to get everything I needed to from them without slaughtering them. Guess they needed to die.

Then I read that the six blood stones I had been [more]

Well, no major screw-ups after I did the first area in the right order a second time. I seem to be trudging along. Most fights are unfortunately a cake walk but some are a real challenge. In fact the Phantom Forest seems to be full of challenging [more]

Re: Noob Mount & Blade Questions

Okay....whew.

First off, the easy question. Generally most people wait for the horse to stop before getting off. As such, in M&B you stop your horse, look down at the ground and the option to dismount comes up. I know, [more]

Re: Oh this is NOT good news....

The ONLY Mount & Blade game to buy now is Warband. Then you can look at any of the mods and see if you want to specifically play them. However, a quick vanilla trial might be your best bet. Don't try to finish it on your first pass. You will make [more]

Thanks, that's the sort of article I was looking for.

Re: New Brunswick joins Nova Scotia

I don't know guys. I have problems with it. They are more anecdotal based than scientifically based but that's because I'm not sure of the science of the chemicals involved.

I think people are very quick to discount issues even though they [more]

Re: episode 2

I thought Rocker was still a jerk about losing to his girlfriend but pretty upstanding about his deal with Val's husband. Val was an idiot.

Next week looks interesting.

That girl is tired because I plugged 1000+ hours into her. She has a new dress. WOOT!

Re: Rail thoughts

I think rail is a moderately safe bet regardless of moving oil. In fact I would put money on oil being their riskiest product due to the quantities involved, the shipping window (at least one of these pipelines will be approved) and the presumably [more]
