Re: Currently Playing

Morrowind's magic system is amazing, in that it lets you create your own spells with no consideration for how game-breaking or ridiculously OP they might be. Oblivion dialled that down a lot, but it was still generous in what it let you do. One of the many reasons that, as much as I love Skyrim, it...

Re: Currently Playing

Morrowind again, but with mods installed and a mage-build. The tweaks from the mods has made it challenging at times. I tend to spend most of my time summoning four different creatures and hiding behind them (AI was shit then. Fighting a few enemies at once can be a problem as all summons tend to pi...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Update on this one. I was back at my parent's over Easter and I couldn't find them, though my mother insists she hasn't thrown them out. I'll have another go next time I'm back.

Re: Currently Listening

Pavarotti. Anything I can get my hands on. Particulary videos where I can watch him create perfection effortlessly.

As a genre it does nothing to me really, but as an individual it looks like he does nothing but sounds like he does everything. It's bizarre.

Re: Currently Playing

Morrowind (again) Same save. This is probably the longest I've played a game consecutively since I was about 13 and I'm still loving it. My speed is now around 300 which makes the game feel fairly small, but its levelled so well. I get why they did the system they have from Oblivion onwards for acce...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

I just don't know what to say anymore.

The country's future is now a pawn for the country's present, which is a replay of the past. :lol:

Strap in.

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

On the basis that I have to be consistent, I don't support a second referendum. I support ignoring the first referendum. It shouldn't have went to the people in the first place. Therefore I can't support it going back to the people. Revoke Article 50, deal with the fallout, move on. And anybody who ...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

:D No worries. I will send the you some cash for P and P if you still have them No you won't, It'll be minimal. I used to love them when I was young, so if there's someone I can pass them to who'll enjoy them then as far as I'm concerned, I'm happy to pay it. Who knows, it might spur me on to look ...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Honestly it’s fine. I’d rather you got some enjoyment from them.

I think I have or had two of those. I think I have Phantoms if Fear and Skylord. I’ll check next time I’m at my parents.

They could’ve given them away, in which case apologies for getting your hopes up.

Re: Currently Playing

Hopefully you've modded the tits out of it. Makes such an awesome gem. Haven't touched any yet, find it time consuming deciding which ones are correct to put on. When I get a chance I'm going to set up graphics ones but to be honest, I don't even mind that. It's just so fucking full of content. I l...

Re: Fighting Fantasy

As a huge fan of the FF books (I have the complete set bar 9 books) and bought them since the original print (I was really into fantasy when I was 10 and it actually helped me to get into books big time that since that age I have never been without a book on the go) I am off to FF Fest 3: https://w...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

I was merely saying to Dj that even if he didn't like the first episode it was apparently well worth persevering with judging by the one review of it I'd read. What's the problem? I was joking mate, it's not that serious. Fair enough, sorry Tommy. Week 1 of a strict new diet this week and I'm like ...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

FWIW the review in The Guardian said they found the first episode hard to get through but the series really picked up after that and they found the ending in particular quite affecting. I've still not started watching it yet, though. Oh well if The Guardian said so. [/spoiler] I was merely saying t...

Re: Currently Playing

Re-playing Morrowind. I don't think I've ever properly played it in the past with no cheating whatsoever. Far more rewarding, unsurprisingly.

That said, it hasn't been too difficult thus far. Just going through the Fighters' Guild quests, toughening up.

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

Just watched After life (Ricky Gervais) last night. Well, this morning actually by the time I'd finished. I loved it :) Stroppy widower trying to come to terms with life alone. Funnier than it sounds with some lovely touching moments. I watched the first episode and it felt like rather typical Gerv...
