Think I'll play as an elf in my next DAI playthrough as the elf mage stuff is better spec wise thsan most of the human mage stuff 4 high dragons dead hunting for the last Emprise du Lion dragon as you can get a lot of good materials for slaying them. There is supposed to be 10 of them in the game not sure I'll try for all 10 but I do want to at least kill the last one in this area

I have MGS1, MGS2, MGS2:Substance (PC and PS2), MGS3: Snake Eater, MGS3: Subsistence, MGS: HD collection (PS3 and Vita), MGS: The Legacy Collection, MGS: Portable Ops (Physical and digital), MGS: Peace Walker (physical and digital), MGA, MGS4, MGS4: Trophy edition, MGS: Ground Zeroes (PC and PS3).

Missing a couple games but happy with that collection so far. Also have a hardback of the comics, the digital version of the MGS1 comic, shot glasses, key chain of foxhound and other random thing.

What is GP World? Is it that really old F1 manager sim, or something else?
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.
Lee hinted to me before that Codies were gonna make one, I'm not sure it could happen anymore though with the financial problems and FOM's strictness.

Sounsd a bit like me with ME then I've pretty much got everything that's Mass Effect related as well not just the 3 games but the books and Paragon's Lost film too.

@RevolvingPrawn‌ Oh dear, it's things like this that stop me pre ordering a game. Don't think I'll be using that 25% off code for Dying Light. You bought it, so I'll wait and see what you think of it. o:) Pretty similar PCs so I should be able to get a general idea of performance.

@fIsince08 Lol normally that would have been the case :p Not this time though, this one belongs to my work for some promotion we did last year, it's a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1" with some awful software called Breezie on it. Every single thing I can think to do hasn't removed it. Android is still on there, Breezie uses it to access apps and settings, but all the things that would let me flash it seem to be locked off.

I emailed them on Wednesday because the website says if you ask they will tell you how to remove. Got a reply that day saying they'd get back to me within 24 hours. They didn't so I've emailed again, a bit annoyed!

Dang, that was close at the top!

good though top 3 rows is always a good result at least I always think so


Just completed DAI have to say though the Corypheus fight at the end was easier than fighting some of the dragons. Looking forward to doing my next playthrough but will wait a while before doing so.

And this is why I don't buy games from places like G2A... http://www.pcgamer.com/ubisoft-says-canceled-uplay-game-keys-were-fraudulent/
@RevolvingPrawn Didn't you buy Far Cry 4 from them?
yeah that's why  I only buy games only from shops with a good reputation they may sometimes cost a bit moer but at least you get what you pay for and I'd rather that than know I've just handed my money to some thief.

Just got Far Cry 4, G2A are normally really good, but they do have some sellers on there that seem a bit sketchy. Once I was instructed to add a steam profile which then automatically gave me a key for a game, weird. They have G2A shield which means they are 100% liable if the key doesn't work or is removed.

@Hughesy No bud, I got a disc copy from Amazon :p I bought the season pass from G2Play for £6 though, checked last night and I still have it at the moment. I got the shield thing that KR mentioned though so should be OK if it does get removed.
Oh That's good then. 
@KRTheIceman‌ The keys might always work, but they aren't sold in a legal way. Most of them are scanned from boxed copies from foreign countries, so that's why they cost a lot less. They don't have the rights to re sell them, I'm surprised more places haven't tried to crackdown on it. A while back loads of stolen Sniper Elite 3 keys were sold by a similar place, and were revoked.

Really hooked playing Dying Light, it's much better than I thought it would be. :) Anyone who thought Dead Island was good would love this. It's a lot more serious compared to that game, and the atmosphere is creepier. 
I hate that you're at home playing it while I'm stuck at work lol. I did the Mothers Day mission last night after messing around with settings, and it is a properly good game. Like I said to you last night, it makes me think of Dead Island, Mirrors Edge, and the Metro games all rolled into one :)

 o:)  It is a great game, and you're spot on, it's like those three games rolled into one. It's a huge improvement over Dead Island, and once you get going is addictive. I just jumped off a building and kicked  a zombie into spikes on a fence B)  I took a picture and I'll put it on here later. Didn't have Shadowplay running so couldn't record it.

Lol, I was dropkicking zombies into spikes and luring them into fires last night :D You might have a bit of trouble with ShadowPlay though bud. When you alt+tab to desktop, does the game minimise to the taskbar or keep running in the background for you? Mine ran in the background and wouldn't minimise, which then wouldn't let me take any screenshots through Steam. So I imagine trying to use ShadowPlay might not work properly either, unless you run it in desktop capture which sometimes doesn't give you any audio :s

Hmm, I'll do some minimising experiments lol.

Quick hint for the big zombie, throw some firecrackers at a gas can ;)
Ah I didn't think about that, me stupid....lol 

You don't need to kill him, but I want to anyway >:)
sounds a bit ilke me with the DA dragons in the Emprise du Lion I didn't have to kill them I don't think in theend but I wanted to because I wanted to see just how good I could get my armour up especially as being a mage I was only using light armour. I think I csan get it higher than I did if I farmed more for stuff but that's for another playthrough which I'll do later. I've just been relaxing and enjoying my Star Trek Voyager DVD's again along with playting one of my old favourite Star Trek games Bridge Commander. Still is one of my favourite games although ME is one of the few games for me that beat it.

Trying to find a gun to give to a bloke on Dying Light. It's doing my nut in, so far I've lock picked 3 or 4 police vans, but each one only had a knife inside :s There's always loads of zombies around, so it can be very hard, as the locks on the vans are very hard ones to pick, especially under pressure.

I'm leaving that mission for later in the game :p Figured guns would be hard to come by so I'll just give him one when I stumble across one.
Yea they are, but are mainly found in police vans ;) I just drop kicked a zombie off a roof top, and he then smashed through a wooden roof below B) That felt good.

Can't believe @RevolvingPrawn and I are the only two that have Dying Light here, honestly it's the best game I've played in a long time. Once you start playing it's hard to stop, nothing more satisfying than drop kicking a zombie off a rooftop and seeing it crash through a wooden roof B)

I'm surprised too that out of my Steam friends only you have it bud. It's like if Dead Island had actually been an awesome game, it'd have been named Dying Light. Think I've got like 9-10 hours on the game so far and still feel as if I've barely scratched the surface with it so far, definitely has a fair bit of content to keep you entertained!

Same here, and I've played for many hours already and still keep getting that wow factor. Think of all the games that get hyped and turn out average, then there's a game like this that hasn't, and turns out to be awesome! I wasn't that excited about it before buying it, I thought it would be a good game, but so far it's blown my mind.

Definitely not an average game this one. I wasn't expecting it to be much different from Dead Island, but it's well surpassed my expectations. 
I think one of my favourite things is the way the game doesn't make you feel like a superhuman who can just bowl over zombies like they were pins. You get out of breath and gradually slow down if you sprint too long, bashing the brains of even 1 zombie destroys your stamina and you gotta bail if there's a bunch around.
Sure, during the day you can avoid them and dodge around them pretty easily, but once it gets to night you feel practically powerless lol. I get scared to use my torch with how many Volatiles are around, so I end up fumbling around in the pitch black, using my minimap and stumbling into numerous zombies. And then when the Volatiles get a whiff and you have to bail, it's proper all out running for your life, quite a damn rush!

Haven't tried co-op yet bud, still building myself up in single player atm :p Even single player is really good though, but I'd recommend the console version over PC right now, at least until they hopefully patch up the stuttering and low FPS problems a lot of people are having.

@Hughesy Just found a new thing, something called a quarantine zone that takes you somewhere off map. I can mark it on a map for you if you want, I'm not gonna go there yet just in case it owns me lol. It says "Bright Mountain Tunnel. Quarantine Zone. Difficulty: Hard." When I stand in front of the door.

I'd rather find it for myself, thanks though mate o:) Unlike Dead Island, this game feels more like a single player game.  If you have friends to play it with it can only get better. Only got it yesterday and a Steam already says I've played for 17 hours, although I do tend to leave games running while I go off to do other things or rest,

@Hughesy Found another thing lol. Not far from the fiahing village, there's a small canyon type area with fences blocking the end. Climbed the fences and there was a small pool of water, jumped in and swam under some rocks and there was a cave on the other side. There's a Very Hard lockpick crate in there but there's also 5 constantly respawning zombies too, soon as you kill all 5, another 5 spawn! Had to bail out and couldn't check the crate.

Best thing to do in that situation is to use firecrackers, and lure them away rather than killing them ;) I'll have a look for it when I get back on it, as I'm at that part of the map.
