I don't post much on this site, or any site for that matter, but I wanted to say this.

Patrick, you will be sorely missed. You are an amazing journalist and this brilliant article reflects this. I don't usually get choked up but I found this piece to be quite emotional, as well as insightful, interesting and thought provoking. Whatever you do next, I'm sure you'll continue to be awesome.

Thank you and good luck. X

Lords of Shadow 2. Gameplay was ok but they didn't make good on any of the set-up from the original. I really liked the first one's story, but the sequel was such a huge let down in this regard.

Just send a death threat to the highest lvl warchief there is and you will have a good chance of getting a lvl 25 rune. The first warchief I sent a threat to and killed dropped one. It probably isn't necessary to find a graug.

@spraynardtatum: Yea I'm not expecting it to be as amazing/revolutionary as they are making it out to be, but hopefully it will be a cool hook.

Hold on to your butts cos reviews are coming today, will it be a masterpiece or a piece of shit? There can be no in between in the world of video games.

(I'm assuming this is the time everyone can put up their reviews and not just IGN)

I do genuinely hope this is really good, its certainly got potential - the Nemesis system looks especially awesome. Plus Monolith have made some decent games before so I have hope.

How's everyone else's excitement for this game?

Well fuck, I thought shooting Kenny was the right thing to do, and his little talk with Clem just before he died made me pretty sad. But now I don't know, the ending where you end up in Wellington sounds better to me.

I think Moffat brought some very interesting concepts into Doctor Who. Such as the weeping angels and River Song during the Tennant era.

However, I felt they lost so much once they were fleshed out. River Song started off as this idea of someone who was larger than the Doctor and that the tragedy was that we were seeing a River who was in love with a Doctor that loved her, yet it was never that Doctor she met.

I think we've seen River's time line play through the show, and the most I ever got out of the Doctor/River relationship was that 11 simply put up with her; there was no actual love, just an infatuation on River's part. If anything, it felt like 11 was annoyed with her if she wasn't behind bars.

I liked Matt Smith, but I think we got too much goofy Doctor. I have a feeling (I hope) that a lot of the past few seasons were written for Matt Smith's Doctor and that the feel of the show will change with Capaldi.

The more I think about it, the more I think that the whole River thing was a load of shit. I think that there was a lot of potential with her but by the end of her story I had completely forgotten what the point of her was.
