You should have had a response for "I also read rock paper shotgun" because I do, and I think plenty of Gbombers do too.

The most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me when I was working at a cinema in London. We got quite a few famous people in and I really didn't care much about them. Keira Knightly came in once and refused to speak to anyone and looked away from the desks while her boyfriend bought the tickets/food. Arsehole.

The Monty Python star Terry Jones comes into the cinema in a rush to watch Slumdog Millionaire and I'm a huuuuuge fan of Python! I couldn't help myself and I spurted out ":-O are you Terry Gilliam!?" and he says no I'm Terry Jones. I say I'm a big fan, and sorry but the screening is sold out so you can't watch your film.

If it was anyone else I don't think I'd feel so embarrassed and ashamed by it but I probably wouldn't have said anything anyway. I still go red if I think about it. The one time I met a legend I cared about enough to say something to and I proper cock it up.

I'm Commander Shephard, and Dark Souls is my favourite game on the Citadel.

@abendlaender: I got the code which came with graphics cards and this registers straight on to Uplay, and I've just played about 15 minutes of it to see if it works and it does and I'm in the UK. The Uplay shop is in £ so I assume it knows I'm British. Maybe it was a mistake, but I don't think they'll now turn it off for a few days since is been available to play for at least some people from the EU.

That's weird. The game doesn't even show up in the "My games" thing on UPlay for me. That's kinda worrying.

Yeah it didn't show up there for me either when I first got the code in the post and I kinda freaked out but I heard that it happens with Uplay.

I actually got an email from Ubisoft with another code on the 19th which I redeemed through Uplay. After that it showed up in my games and let me download and play it after some annoying things where it wouldn't install to the right drive.

Maybe the code I got was an American code for some reason? it came from Ebuyer though so I don't see why it would have been.

This would definitely be my match up for the final. Why does one have to go and the quarter finals :'(.

I've used a lot of the Uchigatana leveled to +15 and if you combine it with great crystal magic weapon and power within later on, it's really really powerful.

I've played 57, and I can't believe that. Where has the time gone?

I'd never played an MMO before I checked out Neverwinter earlier this year. It seems pretty fun and low investment to me. It has an auto-run key! That's probably standard but it amazed me.

It started get to more involved and difficult at around level 20 so I ended up stopping, partly because I had some much else to play though. Dota 2 might have stopped me. I can't say I regret the 15~ hours I spent with it!

Whenever I tried to play Dark Souls I only got about as far as I'd seen GB guys play before I gave up, I found it pretty stressful not knowing what to do next I guess. After the initial videos when it first came out I ended up waiting until Rorie started playing it on his twitch before I could get any further. Then he stopped doing his stream in July or something and I got stuck at Smough & Ornstein (just before he finished streaming). I left it again and when Vinny picked up his game from not long after S & O then I started playing it again.

I wouldn't be surprised if some other people are like me and I'm still absolutely loving the game and I'd say unless you're 100% going to finish Dark Souls then just watch them. The videos are really hilarious too! People say the fun is in the discovery of things in the game, but Vinny being hilarious when he discovers it is much better than when I might discover it on my own.

I think knowing what's coming and seeing how Vinny will react is probably less fun than being suprised with Vinny. With that said I am going to go into the final boss before I watch Vinny get there though because I imagine that's probably an important part of the game.

I bet everyone here who is suggesting that you play it first are the people who have played it first and so literally can't see it from the other perspective. That being said I can't see it from theirs either but I'm having a blast and I don't think I'd finish that game without it.
