Yeah I think it's the best one, but those voices :x

Had another council mission with Zombies and Chrysallids, lose my best soldier on second round. Triggered an airstrike then ran like hell to the Evac point. Each round the enemy numbers got bigger and closer to over running me. Had to sacrifice a heavy to stay and fight buying time for rest to get to safety.

Newfoundland neva 4 get :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Worst part about playing a game of XCOM with all the content is the strawberry floating slingshot DLC, everything else can be delayed or avoided once you know how to; except Slingshot which rushes you into two costly back2back missions.



Newfoundland :dread: I think the best upgrade I've ever brought into that level was a few laser rifles. I'm always really under-equipped.


Somehow I've managed to pull things back on track, my genetics lab allowed me to give healing power to my top 2 soldiers, an ability already put to test on alien base assault.

I had 2 mutons a cyber disc and a drone in a position to take out my top sniper and my only support healer. Assault lined up shot - miss :evil: last move I had available and looking bleak but I fired my heavy with HEAT bonus at cyber disc. By luck it was critical hit with just enough to take out the disc. It fell and exploded taking out both mutons :nod:

Drone retreats. I heal and go on to complete mission 8-)

However my key team are badly injured and I have a covert op coming up with no decent troops to use.

Love the tension this game creates, and the anger when you miss a crucial shot that had 80% chance to hit :fp:

Wind Waker HD, I'm just off to find Jabun. I've only gone through this game fully once before and I'd forgotten just how good it was. Cant't wait for the proper Wii U Zelda, I should really get Twilight Princess finished and give Skyward Sword a look.

Maybe they had to pay him on a volume of content basis, yeah. Wouldn't surprise me.
Shhheeeeiii I'm clamming to replay it now that we're on about it!

I was so into Onimusha back in the PS2 days. I retain that Dawn of Dreams was actually a damn good game stained by the awful story and voice acting. Five playable characters (but strawberry float Ohatsu, guns in Onimusha :| ) with distinct differences, a much wider range of available weapons also with distinct differences, more dark world dungeons etc. It was a great game really.

Skyrim:

"Right team with created this visually impressive, large and non-linear dungeon for the main quest but we need something else to do there. Any ideas"
"How about a shitty nirnroot hunt because everyone loved that part of Oblivion"
"Give that man a promotion"

Thank christ for console codes

Nirnroot hunt :dread:

Wish Skyrim wasn't dumbed down in questline compared to Oblivion (which is also dumbed down from Morrowind)... I'd love to go back to Morrowind for decent storyline/quests but I cannot stomach the gameplay stuff any more on Morrowind :dread:

Hopefully next Elder Scrolls will have better storyline/characters/quest :(

The "choices" in Skyrim are an infuriating change to quests because they're either pointless (about 80% of them including choosing whether or not to strawberry floating kill several major characters) or they result in the quest line splitting in half; this isn't a problem in games like the witcher because choices are everywhere (making it so you carve out your own story) and the game's suitable to replay.

Who wants to replay Skyrim just for the other half of Dawnguard :dread:

I've not started Dawnguard yet :fp: I've 1000g'd 360 version but I just can't be arsed playing Skyrim again on PC. :slol:

Been playing Gunpoint, I've made sure I didn't kill anyone (just knock them out) and I'm far enjoying it - it's not too hard which is bonus since I'm crap at stealth in general, so I'm really loving it... on last mission though.

Do you know much about this game Cal? I'm tempted to pre-order for the DLC. Previews indicate it's entertaining if unspectacular, but I enjoy a bit of sniping.

OK, cheers for that. Maybe I'll wait for a price drop then.

Yeah, V2 is really quite difficult to play as a stealth game because it hasn't got the mechanics to back it up.


All the guards have laser vision and it forces you through areas where you really have no chance of sneaking through.



V3 has a 10 GB day one patch on XBO, so Buff will be pleased.

OK, deffo sounds like £25 game, not a £45 one.

Get it on PS4 then.

Eurogamer had a good preview of the game, looks pretty good, one to get when the price drops IMO:

If you have a PC capable of playing it then it's only 15 snoops for a Steam key on Simplycdkeys.com. That feels like the 'right' price to me if it's anything like V2.

Don't you have a PS4? Apparently all the other versions have tiny patches.
