    Jumped in for another hour or two. You could've just told me there was a fucking Beholder. Given that I'm someone who doesn't have a whole lot of time to play games and so finds Dark Souls quite hard...

    I think I was probably about 45 when I finished the Dragon fight. More or less, at least.

    Thanks Vin - If it's a worthwhile investment, then I'll carry on; it's not that I stopped enjoying the game, just that I was unsure of what kind of post-game it was. On the one hand, it could just be...

    So I just beat the boss in Dragon's Dogma. Great finale, and turned into a fairy-tale cliche as I got the princessas my love-interest. The post-game stuff is a neat setup, but I'm getting the...

    I have very, very fond memories of this, although I never finished it (and never played MP). Will have to pick it up - it doesn't even look like it's aged that badly from screenshots. I even still...

    Finally got past the bandits on the way to the Bluemoon Tower in Dragons Dogma. I haven't been following the stats, but a few levels seems to make a big difference. I've been having the occasional...

    Thanks Alms. I guess I'll open a ticket later if it still isn't working. It was more to get the huge download of XCOM out of the way so I can play it before the students come back and the connection...

    I was a pretty early adopter on the e-reader front because I read a lot for work, but needing to read PDFs was a large reason for my eventually picking up a tablet. The re-flowing of epubs is great...

    I think there's something in both points - expanding 'game' is useful precisely because of the marketing-fuelled fanboy outrage we see poured all over entirely valid ways of spending an evening....

    Yeah - I'm going to see how I am skills-wise having done a few more quests and whatnot; might even do some of the more interesting hunting quests before taking on the tower. But there's always a...

    Actually jumped on this one because I have a strange fascination with ARPGs, wanting to like them and always being let down. Either way, Vran seems like one that can be finished, which is a bonus in...

    So had to follow a griffin to blue moon tower in Dragon's Dogma. The first griffin fight itself was easy because of that wonderful combo of fivefold shot and flaming arrows aimed at wings, but I got...

    I'm toying with this for MP shenanigans, but how long are we talking about for the average match (with relatively new/inexperienced players)? My PC time is a bit limited.

    I tend to divide these things up into my head - long-term multiplayer, often asynchronous; and short-term multiplayer. Either way, I'm a fan of the genre despite pretty much refusing to play F2P...

    Have you played the Men of War games? I found them a good half-way point between CoH and the (for me) hard-to-stomach perspective and anachronistic control system of the Close Combat games.
