    Guild Wars 2

    Sly, really sorry, I need to sort my Steam notifications out. Been missing stuff all over as they haven't been popping up. Give me a nudge once you manage to get on and we'll do some stuff. I'm on the Blacktide server, so just let me know if you already have a different one lined up. I seem to remember being able to flip between servers easily but I'm not 100% sure how that works.
  2. Cheers Sly, excellent article, especially for someone just starting out like me. This game has the same mind hooks Dark Souls has. You start reading about it and all you want to do is spend a bunch of time playing it
  3. I've been playing quite a few different games recently. Still levelling up through Guild Wars 2, nearly level 50 on my Charr Ranger now. It's such a refreshing change of pace from other MMO's like WoW as there's no pressure to level up in any particular way. Pretty much anything you decide to do will net you XP and the massive World Events that happen periodically are excellent fun when there's loads of players participating. I dipped a toe into the Dark Souls DLC, promptly got pwned, then decided to level up a bit more and come back. Steamrolled my way through the Undead Asylum and Painted World of Ariamis for more souls and goodies. Also upgraded the Butcher Knife as I found out that the enemies in Oolacile are resistant to magic and elemental damage. Doh. I don't have a Wii U and really wanted to play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate so decided to play Monster Hunter 3 Tri on the Wii instead. I've never really gotten very deep into previous MH titles before, I think the last one I played was the PSP version , which felt janky as hell. It's awesome heading out to fight the bigger monsters and all the prep that goes into it, just going to gather some materials for an hour can be a lot of fun. I bought FEZ on Steam last night and fell straight back in love with it. If it's possible, it looks even better on PC because of the higher resolutions. The music is just amazing and fits the world perfectly. I even pulled my old notebook with all my scribblings and translations from it's original release. Say what you like about Phil Fish, I'll always love the man for having the vision to craft this so perfectly. Played an hour or so of Catherine as it's free this month on PS+. I think I'm really going to enjoy this game, kind of annoyed I never made time for it when it was released. Last but not least is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. If you cut this game it would bleed cheesy one liners from 80's action movies. It's brilliant.
  4. That's a bloody shame, although Linux... I'm sure the devs will fix it soon. Steam is more of a public soapbox for noisemaking over this sort of thing, so there will be more pressure to get it sorted. Picked up Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and FEZ from Steam last night. Can't wait to dive into Blood Dragon later on, I have an itch that can only be scratched by lasers and 80's action flick references.

  6. Hover over your username on the top menu and you'll see an "Inventory" option. Select the game you want to gift and click "Send gift..." from the details pane on the right. You'll then get options to either send via email or gift directly through Steam.

    Very much looking forward to playing through this again. I really hope the new PC players can create a similar community around this game as that was a big part of the overall experience for me last time.
  8. Thomas Was Alone - A fun little platformer, some light puzzling, not very challenging. It's Danny Wallace's narration that really lifts this, if not for that it'd just be a pretty standard platformer.
  9. Have they made any improvements to it now it's on Steam? I remember trying it a while back and whilst the gun physics and interaction were very cool, the smattering of actual gameplay was a touch ropey.

    Watch Dogs

    They make a point at the end of the trailer that it's "Also coming to current generation consoles", so I'd have thought this date relates to those. I'd be surprised if it wasn't a launch day title for the new systems though. It looks excellent, although it'll be interesting to see what the difference in fidelity is between old and new, and whether it's as big a gap as everyone is expecting.
  11. So does this release include the full game and the new stuff, or just the new content on it's own?
  12. Injustice: Gods Among Us - Finished in one sitting this afternoon. Not a very long story, but enjoyable enough if you're a DC fan. One problem I did notice towards the end of the game is the CPU completely trashing you, then when you retry they basically put up no fight at all. Bit weird.

    Dark Souls

    My apololgies Hendo, didn't realise you hadn't done Anor Londo yet. You don't actually need to touch Darkroot Garden/Basin at all so most players completely miss it or go a lot later on due to both routes in being guarded by a couple of strong enemies. The summoning is just a big letdown at this point in the game's life. There's not actually that many playing and those that do are only there for the high-level PvP stuff. Floyd's correct in saying that there's an approximat 10 level threshold both ways to where your summoning sign will appear. So someone has to be within that range and be around the exact spot you've dropped your sign. Very rare you'll get someone at this point. You're best off just summoning in the NPC's if you need some help at this point. Some of them can even take bosses down by themselves without you having to lift a finger which is always fun.
  14. I was thinking the exact-same thing, Monkey Get ready to GRAPHICS!!!!!!!!, Sly.

    Dead Island

    There's just one normal dude standing to the right. Even the minister made an effort but this guy still got in the front row of the picture. Also, all the fucking advertising...
