    Always go with the browny black one myself. Entropy, that's the one. And spirit, with enough primal to get cone of cold. Only ever play with one mage though, too easy otherwise.

    Replaying Human Revolution. Normally I don't care too much about achievements, but if anything deserves to have some sort of reward attached to it, there should be one for searching every one of the thousand desk drawers in that fucking Picus building.

    Yeah, but it's one of those things where "entropy" means "less damage than fire but hella debuffs" and cold means "less damage than fire but hella snares" and spirit means "less damage than fire but no resistances." I don't want to weaken my enemies: I want to blow them up!

    The cold immunity is a huge part of the problem, I hadn't known that. I'm specced shock/cold for elemental stuff, and then glyphs. I believe I gave Wynne crushing prison, though. Anyway, I appreciate the advice, it's entirely possible the problem is that I'm simply picking the wrong fights to get back into the game with!

    It's funny, I tend to avoid fire mages in RPG's because I cynically assume that it's what the developers expect me to do, and thus that there will be a bunch of fire-immune stuff. Apparently I got burnt badly (ha) on that one this time.


    Edit: If folks don't mind, I'd like to move this over to my already-going DA thread rather than clutter this one up (I should have thought of that to begin with!).

    Nalano demonstrates that he understands me. The only time I've ever picked a spec other than fire (in any game involving magic) is when it's like 'chaos-destructo-magic' that doesn't so much set things on fire as rend the fabric of reality in two.

    Even then I usually pick fire, because chaos/arcane/purple magic ends up looking butts.

    Trying to unlock all the ships in FTL at the moment.

    I really should play something I can actually finish.

    So playing Divine Divinity, a warrior, is it possible to make a good warrior/mage character without being demolished in the late game as is often the case when you dont use skill point correctly.

    Not only is it possible, it is pretty much essential as there will be some mobs that just go down a lot faster to a direct damage spell and others where you want to use a combination of the three game breakers, spoilered for your protection


    Freeze: max this out ASAP and it makes the boss-like battles MUCH less frustrating. And it is great for crowd control.
    Poison Weapon: This skill lets you apply a poison to a weapon. That makes some fights MUCH easier as you can run like hell while the poison eats away
    Use Trap (or whatever): Death Scorpions (the mechanical scorpion things). Even with only 1 rank of this they can tear through mooks while you sodomize the elites. And for some bosses: Just deploy two or three and attack from range.
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    Been trying to get the last ship a fair few times over the last couple of days as well. Yesterday I actually got the secret alien crew member for the first time ever - after 100 hours of play, according to steam - and then I got torn apart at the very next encounter. Did a few sessions afterwards but the game does nothing but piss me the fuck off now.

    I also played a few missions of Oil Rush but, as is common with me and strategy games, I got bored once the game started to present a modicum of challenge. So this one's a nope.

    Getting back in touch with Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup. Not a big fan of the tileset, but luckily there's always the console version available. It's good, I guess, but I'm not particularily fond of the wide and large levels compared to ADoM. Then again, the class, race and god options you have are amazing, with mutations and all that stuff.

    I totally expect them to do that too, but I also expect that the developers are being smacked upside the head by their marketing gurus who remind them every once in a while that people play these games for the power fantasy and the nebulous concept of "fun."

    When you get down to it, if there's an enemy that's immune to both physical AND fire, dollars to donuts he's the end boss and has some stupid trick to him anyway.

    I'm a suffocator and burner in FTL, with a steady diet of EMP. I consider the engee basic ship to be the best in he game.

    When you salvage the ship whole salvage is just better.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    Going old-school this weekend with Lords of the Realm 2 and Birth of the Federation (Balance of Power mod).

    I'm trying out the latter with the new MPR++ patch, which improves the game's visuals. It's been stable so far, which is happy.

    HoMM 2 on Android tab

    So I'm plaing original campaign for good faction and at some point those enemy necromactic idiots are spamming me with mass death spells nonstop and then retreat. My army is full of squishy units and every time I lost plenty of them. Infuriating. Not even hard really, jsut tedious. All standard missions follow the same path, you level up a mage hero until you don't even need an army and spam attack spells.

    This game campaign is baaaaad. Maybe mp is better and more balanced.

    Arma 3. Lots of Arma 3. Low FPS disappointingly unoptimized CPU usage Arma 3 Goodness.

    Edit: Damn this forum is fast. Almost no load times between pages.

    Guess I'm jumping on the Super Hexagon bandwagon. One hour of practice later and I'm up to 56 seconds, and my hands are cold from sitting perfectly still the whole time.

    This is a real lizard-brain type of game. I don't think the pulsating and rotating really makes the game any harder once you've gotten used to it.
