    So I think it took me maybe 5 or so episodes to 'get into it'. I think it's the point when you know enough of the characters to be able to follow what is happening. Good to hear that you plan to fini...

    I'm only now starting my second playthrough. Thinking back, I think the boss I had the most trouble with weirdly enough was the Stray Demon. No idea why, I just think that fight took more attempts th...

    Are these from the EA Humble Bundle? There's a lot of great stuff in there. I haven't claimed these by the way, gonna get the bundle myself later on.

    This reminds me way too much of playing Caster on steam last week. That game is a real fucking mess.

  • paulmako posted a message in the forum topic Good games based on Vikings. on the Viking board

    I will echo what @citizencoffeecake said and just recommend Skyrim. It's pretty cheap now (disgustingly so when on sale) and lets you run around an old nordic world to your hearts content. Seriously.

    If you know anyone else playing then it's always fun to talk to them about how it's going and what you've found etc. I would echo the advice above and try to avoid FAQs at first because part of the fu...

    Can we count the final mission in the original Advanced Wars?Nothing really comes to mind for fights that actually take too long. I guess I've not played enough games with boss fights recently to rem...

    @oldirtybearon said:@dregdon: For me it's not so much the fact that these patches exist but more that they're so huge. Like I said, I have a DSL connection (the fastest available in my region) and it...

    @whforde: This is awesome. Planning and preparing to play a game is a nice feeling. Too often I just sit at my desktop and think 'Huh, I wonder what's in my Steam library?' You are doing it right.

    I really liked the Prison level! As soon as things kicked off I just though 'ooooh shiiiiit'. The four Fans storming the building as mentioned above also sticks out. The nightclub annoyed me at first...

    Why the dislike of crabs? Crabs are great! Does this mean Dan has never experienced the joy of crabbing? Also they are tasty.
