Typical now I'm commited to the Necromancy path I find another tome I needed for the Rift mage one. Damn annoying that :#


What specialization did you choose for your Inquisitor @Hughesy?

Once I beat Inquisition will probably finish the DVD sets and that I'm currently watching then go through the DA's again as I want to see if what I've learnt from this playthrough helps me do better in my next one especially in DAO as I know there have been moments in both DAO and in Inquisition which I think if I played again I would do differently. I am enjoying the games though so it'll definitely be worth while. Not so much in DA2 as I think things went well in that one but I would like to play the DLC's and see how I get on with them now I've bought them. I definetely feel that I could have done better in DAO and Inquisition  mostly in the early stages of both games though.

I will probably stick with the same strategy in terms of playing as a mage as I love the idea of freezing enemies on the spot and throwing fireballs and whatever at range. The only thing I might change about DA2 is I might try as a female Hawke as I went male on this one

I'm now ploughing through collecting all the Enigma datapacks in Batman Origins. There are so many of them :# I left them until now as you can't get them all until later in the game when you have all the gadgets. All this just to hack a door in Enigma's HQ, but I want to do everything before moving onto the next game (which is actually the first game)  Arkham Asylum. I'm excited about getting onto that game, as I haven't played it in years.

I've gone back to Hitman Absolution lol. Trying to beat your level scores, and I think for about half the ones I've done I have, but it's hard to say for sure cos it only tells me your score at the start of the level. Don't know how to compare otherwise.

I never got far in Absolution, don't know why but it didn't hook me in like the other Hitman games. I'm going to try it again at some point though.

My oh my. Now I really do feel powerful. :p  I just killed one of the high dragons without any of my team dying in fact I don't think we used any health potions either. I've also proved my theory is correct in that the dragons are especially vulnerable to the cold (winter tree) powers

Tbh, I hated it at release :p Played the whole game on 360 and traded it as soon as I was done with it. Butgoing back to it I am enjoying it finally lol, finding it a lot easier to stealth entire levels than I did before which is cool :)

@RevolvingPrawn‌ Got a 25% off code for Dying Light on Greenmangaming. So it's £29.99 using the code, £10 cheaper than Steam. Still haven't made my mind up yet about buying it.

Lucky bugger lol. I had planned on getting it from a key shop, settled on G2Play, but then you get to the checkout and they start adding on the VAT then lol. So it ended up being £31 from them, which just made me think I'd be better off just getting it from Steam. The G2Play one didn't come with Be The Zombie but Steam did so...

Looks like a fun game though, like a much better version of Dead Island.

So I started up Steam and it froze, Waited 5 minutes but nope, didn't come back. Soft reset the PC.

Turned Steam back on, it's deleted DOTA; the only game I'm playing at the moment.

FML.

After completing Batman Origins, I've started Arkham Asylum. Playing it at 4K I must say the game has aged well. First time I've got to use PhysX in this game, as when I played it I had an ATI (now AMD) 5850 so couldn't use it.

 Playing through them all ready for Batman Arkham Night, just wish it was coming out a few months earlier. Sad it won't be using Unreal Engine 4, but a juiced up version of 3. Probably because they started making the game before UE4 was finished. I'm sure it'll look great though, especially with the PhysX effects :)

GP World just gets better! Despite still having room for sponsors on my car, I've already got more money next season than I do now. I've just had a 1-2 at Belgium, but the rain has ruined hospitality. I have completed my deal with Ford to give me fixed cash income at each race, full R&D control and priority, I have everything set for next season and if I can sign the last few sponsors and negotiate full R&D terms with Goodyear, I'll be unstoppable!

Yeah, that's the one. I love it!
Haven't played it for many years, but spend a lot of time on it. :) Got confused for a minute as I loved Grand Prix World, thought there was some new game called GP World  that I didn't know about. Wish Codemasters would make a similar game, don't think it would have a huge market though.

Nice to see a young lad into a game that came out around the time he was born ;)

Metal Gear (not Solid) came out the year I was born, and that series of games have influenced how I think about video games in a huge way :)

I still have my PS2 copy of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (along with Metal Gear Solid PS1, and Metal Gear Solid 2 PS2, and the same PS2 console, still working, that I bought on release day) :) It came with Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 on one of the 3 discs. Needless to say, it's a collection that I'm hoping to keep with me till the day I die!
