Elite: Dangerous is so freaking good......

Quote
http://blowthecartridge.com/comics/2011-08-27-Elite.gif
That's what I picture when I think of Elite from MSX times...
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

OK, Justin. I just started Inquisition. Definitely want to romance Cassandra :o

I suck at combat, though. I almost died to the first boss fight. Gotta get my skills up and prove myself to my lady in battle...

How do you like it apart from the fighting? What platform are you using?

I have let her know that I am a religious nutjob who believes in The Maker. She seemed to approve of that.


How do you like it apart from the fighting? What platform are you using?

Playing it on PC. The combat I feel I will enjoy, once I get it down a bit better. Everything else is great. Really great worldbuilding, but haven't seen a lot of action so far. I spent the last time just talking to everyone in the Haven and doing some simple fetch quests. Now I begin the Hinterlands.

I just got a Wii U yesterday. It came with NintendoLand and Super Mario 3D World pre-loaded on it, so I've been enjoying the latter. I'm getting Smash Bros for it tomorrow, hopefully. Also looking forward to getting Bayonetta 2, Super Luigi Bros, Super Mario Bros Wii U, and Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker.

Have you demoed bayonetta? I had hopes, but dodgy controls.

MHU4 is going to be a 3ds only release. Are you going to pick up the new xl? I would be interested in hooking up for that.

Still Civ V! Almost 800 hours in.

I just wish Byzantium was good on the harder difficulties.  Oh well, there's still Ethiopia for me to Orthodox the world with.

Plus you can judaize it at the same time--it's a win-win!  :angel:

Nice!

If anyone with a 3ds wants a MHU4 demo code, PM me. I have 4 or so to give away.

First impressions: unplayable. FPS varies wildly it seems.

I got DA:Inquisition and loved it.  But had trouble getting immersed because I didn't know the lore.  So I went ahead and got the first two games and have started playing Origins. I also like how they let your decisions in the first two effect the world in third!

They're coming out with an updated edition of "Grim Fandango." It's a really neat adventure game from years ago, adjusted for present-day systems. I love the story. A guy named Manny goes to the land of the dead and has to solve a mystery. Can't wait to download it. I played the original, I'd love to play it again. :)

The older I got the more I can't stand video games. I can't even sit for more than 30mins playing one anymore. Which is crazy to think about, I used to be able to play for 19 hours a day - that's not even a joke! However, I do like to watch videos about videos games every so often. Recently the Mythbusters did a special on Video Games and their physics compared to real-life.

If you have OnDemand you can watch it there.

Or you could watch it here on YouTube  (it's only 360p, but that's what you get for free)

You are talking about the 3rd part of DA and I've just started the Origins... :P
It's a very good game, and has quite similar ambient to the one of Baldur's Gate (what I was looking for a long time), but yeah, BG is a legend, maybe it's also a kind of sentiment...
But I would like to see more detailed locations (maybe they are in the Inquisition, don't know), more involving story (in DA ofc, there is something like discovering the secrets, the plot, but it's more about killing the monsters, than looking for something else, at least for the main character).

The last Video game I played was Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. I dunno why Hideo Kojima decided to make this a separate game in itself when it's simply and literally a paid demo of MGS V. It's a great game overall as an intro to the full package of MGS V with a disturbing cutscene.

Most interestingly is how in opposition to many other video games, America is shown to be the bad guy(it's not new, past MGS games did this). Finally, a game where America is not the guardian of freedom against terrorism or the Russians.

Played Minecraft for the first time today. After exploring and some building and whatnot for a few hours I just dug down and down, all the way to the bedrock. Then I began working my way back up... that is, until I worked through a wall only to discover that there was a monster there, who attacked me and ended up killing me. I raged.  >:(  8)

I think it was me who was given the suggestions (by Mathematician?).  I believe it was NewEgg he suggested and who I ended up using.  No problems.  Computer is still running.

I've built numerous computers ordering from them and have always been pleased with the results except for once I bought some memory that was mislabeled on their site. Fortunately, they took it back without any problems.

Isn't minecraft way over-rated?

I suppose it would be great if it were a free early 1990's online multiplayer game instead of the same in 2015.

I will definitely defend the latest Nintendo consoles as worthwhile purchases. Mostly because it's getting to the point where you can play pretty much any classic Nintendo game between the two of them.

Bought a cheap used copy of Elder Scrolls IV (with expansions), but haven't played it yet. I bought it for X360 back when it first came out, but don't recall liking it that much. I expect things'll be different this time around. I also got the PS3 Journey Collection from Amazon... looking forward to seeing what everyone was talking about (though I hope coming this late in it won't be a letdown because of fewer/no people for interactions). Lastly I got a new, 24" monitor (though with no consult with Shiny). I've had my current 19" one for 5 1/2+ years, and it saw heavy use and really poor habits (e.g., I didn't use a screen saver, sleep mode, etc. for years). I can hear the rest of my computer wheezing every night as well. Poor thing.

Mass Effect 2... I'm on Horizon and I'm on the hardest damn part:

charging Husks, Scions and no place to hide. I really hate this part.
I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I play LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online.)  I play it way too much.

I played that for several years pretty intensely. Then, as with all MMORPG, I got tired of the endless leveling up only to have a new expansion come out that made all my hard work obsolete.
God bless!

So who plays Dota 2 on here? I just started, been trying to read/watch every newbie guide I can find to understand the basics of the game.

If anyone is looking to play with me, send me your Steam info via PM.

So many chars....kind of confusing. But I do like it.
