Re: They are Billions - shambling out of EA on June 18th

I have to say, the Titans - piloted mechs with gatling guns - are a hell of a lot of fun to use, and rip a shred through enemies. I just cleared a map including harpies and chubbies with six of them and nothing else, barely took a scratch. I'd give the Thanatos unit a swerve though, if you're weighi...

Re: Indie Game News/Releases

Very early days (there'll be a Kickstarter, apparently), but one for the RPG fans among us to keep an eye on potentially, and with some interesting new ideas for the genre:

Re: They are Billions - shambling out of EA on June 18th

Two-thirds of the way through the campaign now. Still enjoying it, although I'm starting to be a little worn down by the process of starting from scratch again each time. I may take a break of a few days so I don't completely tire of it. In terms of the tech tree, for reference by now I've unlocked ...

Re: Adventures in 3D printing

I don't have a lot to contribute to this thread as it's entirely outside my sphere of knowledge or experience, but I'm very impressed Raid :)

Re: The Big Steam Bargains Thread

Seconded, I've spent countless hours in Grimrock 2. It's a near-perfect implementation of its sub-genre. Might and Magic X is in a similar vein and also well worth a look. Yeah, the main thing holding me back is the first game is the type that I really want to like, but for some reason didn't total...

Sly, definitely get Grimrock 2. It expands on the first game perfectly. Absolutely loved playing that. Seconded, I've spent countless hours in Grimrock 2.

Re: The Big Steam Bargains Thread

Working now... kinda.

Haven't had time to properly browse, but for the most part it's looking like the same games for the same discounts I've already passed up on half a dozen times before.

A bit tempted by Grimrock 2 for £7 and Just Cause 3 for £2 though.

Re: Football

Chelsea on the verge of appointing "Lamps".

Obviously they've been really impressed with the sterling work Ollie has been carrying out at United and want to emulate the approach :lol:

Protip: Even if the mission text categorically states there are no swarms on the map, expect swarms. -_-

Re: They are Billions - shambling out of EA on June 18th

Props to the devs, they continue to make tweaks and improvements. One of the changes in today's update that caught my eye was that if you fail a mission you can refund the techs you unlocked immediately prior to that mission. Basically if you make a bad choice when upgrading that stymies you on the ...

I feel like I could unleash a tide of unbridled fury in this thread if I had a mind to, so I'll try to restrain it: - Pedestrians who are walking slower than you in the same direction, but speed up when you try to overtake them. - People bimbling around a busy town centre who stop dead in their tra...
