Re: Blackrock Mountain Adventure

I've had a somewhat easier time with the heroics than I did with Naxx, although that might just be because I'm better at building decks for them. Granted you usually need a considerable amount of luck, but if you build a deck that has lots of [more]

Re: Bugged?!

Velen's Chosen gives +1 spell power, so your Circle did 5 damage to everyone rather than 4. Then I guess the deathrattles triggered after the shadow priest was dead.

I've had one or two opponents make the same mistake against me - it's [more]

Re: Blackrock Mountain Adventure

I ended up pre-ordering after realizing that they weren't giving the first wing away free this time. That seemed to make it a better deal, plus circumstances may prevent me from grinding dailies fast enough to earn the gold this time (serve me right [more]

Re: Blackrock Mountain Adventure

I have been contemplating it this time, even though I could probably afford to buy it with just gold and so it would amount to a large (and somewhat discounted) card pack purchase. I feel like Blizzard probably deserves some cash from me given how [more]

Re: Good & Bad writing in games - violence

I'm not sure why I did it, just following John's lead I guess.

I actually thought Borderlands 2 was a good game, but I also thought the criticism was valid. It did have some weaknesses and that was one (in my opinion).

Re: Good & Bad writing in games - violence

I think I may know the second game you're talking about. I believe the vibe they were going for was tongue-in-cheek black humor, which the first game in the series achieved pretty well. The problem is that there is a fine line between black humor and [more]

Re: My Undying Confusion over Crusader Kings

I bought the everything bundle and got buyer's remorse not long afterward. I suggest taking the organic molecule's advice, even if you get a great deal on Steam (75% off garbage is still garbage). If I had done so I would have spent quite a bit less [more]

Re: Year of the Warrior & His Majesty's Dragon

I am a big fan of Naomi Novik's dragon series. Unlike the critics you mentioned, I don't think the quality falls off in later novels (with perhaps one or two exceptions). In fact I found the first one a little lightweight, but felt that she really [more]

Re: Sunless Sea

Now live and out of early access.

I'm looking forward to seeing what goodies they held back for release day, although I might need to retire and start a new game to see them (had been thinking about doing that anyway).

Re: Le Guin's Rocannon's World

I recall reading this a long time ago. My impression was that it was an enjoyable read, but a bit lightweight. It was Le Guin's first published novel so it's not too surprising that it's not up to her later standards. It still contains the early [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

I don't want to spoil it for someone else, but I went along with the chaplain the first time he suggested that I try the new religion. It didn't end well for me. It's pretty much throw them jail and until they convert back. It always seems to [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

You do get some pretty cool stories from the game.

My favorite so far was a daughter of my main character at the time. When she was a toddler there were some rumours that she was a bit odd (took pleasure in others' pain, nursemaid was a [more]

Re: Dark Souls a bit of a review

There is little indication of what it does or what it should do. In reality it is a key to the Painted World of Ariamas that is accessed by going through a painting in Anor Lando. In order to access the Painted World you have to go back to the [more]

Re: Dark Souls a bit of a review

The stray demon is optional? He drops a titanite slab, it's optional if you don't want to upgrade your gear all of the way.

My preferred weapon was Quelaag's sword and it didn't work on that. I used various other swap weapons for [more]

Re: Dark Souls a bit of a review

Stray Demon was a pain in the butt for me as well, especially once I was fairly sure I had the correct strategy down and just couldn't execute it. I ended up leaving and coming back later when I was stronger. He is actually an optional boss and you [more]

Re: Still playing?

I find myself enjoying ladder more and more as I get more cards and understanding of deck building and more Arena experience (as fun as Arena is, a lot of the decks end up looking pretty similar). I always find it interesting to see a finely-tuned [more]

Still playing?

Anyone still playing after GvG or have you all been sucked back into WoW with the expansion?

I've been playing a lot of Arena to build my GvG collection, and managed my first 12 win run (actually a 12-0, believe it or not) which was quite [more]

Sunless Sea

I haven't seen a discussion of this game (by Failbetter Games) yet, so I thought I'd start a thread. It's currently in early access on Steam, and scheduled to release for real on 6th Feb. It will probably cost in the neighborhood of $20 (non-sale [more]
