@Hughesy Trust me dude, wouldn't have worked there, the cave was too small and the lock would have taken way too long with how much time the firecrackers buy you. Just found a gun :D Think I'll use 14 of the 15 bullets and then give it to that guy lol.

Edit: And now I have a rifle ;)
It's how I do it when lock picking police vans. It's hard and you need a lot of firecrackers sometimes. Anyway I'm off to find that cave in a sec.  :#

Well done finding a gun, I've only used one bullet as they are noisy, I used it on one of the  exploding zombies. :D

Lol, I used 14 of the 15 bullets shooting Rais men when they get to an air drop before me :p Then I used the last one to headshot this nutter who was 1 shot killing me with some kind of rockets!
Gave the gun to the guy empty but he seemed happy enough lol. Gonna keep the rifle for times when I'm being chased by Volatiles ;)

I can't remember exactly where on the map it is, but once I've finished stress testing my OC I can jump into the game and find it again, screenshot my map and post it here. If you've found the right pool of water though, you should be able to dive under the water and swim through a kind of underwater tunnel.

Oh crap, I just met the guy with a rocket launcher :# And it was at night, so suddenly I had 6 Volitiles chasing me! Once it's day time, I'm going to send that guy straight to hell. >:)
yeah I hate enemies equipped with heavy weapons too nasty :# . Had a few problems dealing with rocket launcher enemies on Halo 1 as well

@RevolvingPrawn I was in the wrong place, but found it now. And its the cave that's having a dig at Destiny, as it comes up with "Your Destiny is to build your legend(and get loot)" LOL.

Edit: I did it exactly how I told you to do it, using firecrackers B) I'm good a lock picking, as I  practiced on many police vans.

So I finished GP World season 1, Newhouse won the WDC but I just missed out on the WCC due a bad qualifying in the wet. New season, new car and I've got Hakkinen and Coulthard on two year contracts. My factory is now bigger and I have works deals for all my suppliers, so no excuses!

Hah! @Hughesy Dude I highly recommend taking a jump off the massive bridge :p Was trying to avoid zombies when I fell off, expected to die but actually dived into the water :) Then a zombie fell on my head lmao :D 
I already did that mate :p Seen someone do it on Xbox One to get an achievement. Not sure if it's the same on Steam, but think it has to be done at night. Bit annoyed at the moment, as I have two guns now, one is a rifle though. Was going to give it to Dawud, but it has to be a pistol. My pistol has 244 firepower, and 95 accuracy vs the rifle which only has 137fp and 55 accuracy. So I need to find another pistol :(

Edit: Now I'm really angry, I just accidentally sold my pistol thinking I was on the buy section. I had to buy it back which cost around $8000 after I'd just sold it. Man what a stupid thing to do :s

Ah that's for a different mission, the one I was doing was to find something in one of the cars. Luckily the car also fell off the bridge so I didn't have to go back up, just had to swim down to it :) 

I neglected to look at the firepower levels, I just figured rifle = better :p Out of bullets now though :( 

I've done the same only not with a gun lol, thought you could get it back for the same price you sold it in the Buy Back section though?

We've all done that. :p  I did that with one of my Staves I think on my DAI playthrough sold it by accident didn't realise it until much later though when I looked to use it as it had pretty good stats for the conditions I was facing

@RevolvingPrawn Do you know what the White stuff floating in the air is in Dying Light?

Edit Meant to edit my other post not start a new one...lol
Anyway Im stood at the top of Infamy Bridge waiting for night, so that I can see which lights I need to take. It's 2PM so shouldn't have to wait too long.

Yea I see you got the achevement like me. You could've used a zip line, but that would've been less fun. Strange that you don't get audio using Shadowplay, have you've defiantly got it set to ingame audio? The only thing I can think of is to uninstall the driver, then install it again.

Haha yea, no time for a zip line when there's a decent gap for a running jump ;) 

Done a little bit of Googling, and it seems like anybody using an Asus Xonar sound card has this issue :( Couple of people have found possible fixes, but I'm just gonna have to experiment.
I have an Asus Xonar sound card though (D2X) and don't have that problem, or is it just the older one you have that's affected?

Just unlocked grappling hook, awesome B) 

Edit: And I just killed a Volitile. I was fed up running away from them, so thought I'd try killing one. :)
Think you're a fair bit ahead of me now then :p I've been playing Destiny all day, gone up a rank and found some sweet new weapons and gear :) Also, this could be my new favourite game trailer, had me cracking up, can't believe it's actually on the official channel ;)

@RevolvingPrawn PCgamer review http://www.pcgamer.com/dying-light-review/ For me though it's the best game I've played in ages, even with the performance issues. Btw you get the grapple hook via survivor rank at level 12. I get loads of points now, as I do a lot of stuff when it's night. Being sneaky and if needed using flairs. What level are your stats? Mine is 12/13/9, need to get my power level up. I've done 22% of the story.

And now I have another cool ability, I can camouflage myself using blood from a zombie, which also means I can pick locks easier as they won't come after me for a while B)

I've had a look at a few reviews, and to me, it's being given a lower score than it really deserves. The lower PC scores I'd guess are coming from the bad performance, but minus that and it's a bloody cracking game! Not sure on my levels, I haven't played today, felt I needed a change of pace, but I have the camouflage with zombie guts too ;)

Just finished episode 1 of Life is Strange, and for a game that has some cringey girly moments, a few bits of dodgy voice acting, and some pretty bad stereotypes, it was actually pretty awesome. It was like Gone Home meets Telltales The Walking Dead.
You could explore way more than in a Telltale game though, there was more items and clickable things, all of which the main character would comment on. And you had more decisions that affect the story, 4 big ones and 12 smaller ones. And talking of story, it's properly interesting, it fully hooks you in with episode 1, but doesn't actually give you any real answers and leaves you with so many questions. Also, the main character has what I guess would be considered a superpower, but it integrates well into the game, and doesn't make it feel silly. I'd say this is closer to watching a TV series than any other game I've played.
I got the full season for £12 on a Steam key site, and even just one episode in I'd say money well spent and I almost think it's probably worth more than even the £16 it is on Steam. 

Definitely gonna have to play it over again and make different decisions!

I was interested in that game until I found out it's released as episodes, there's no reason to make games like that. Looks like an interesting game, but I won't buy it until it's a full game, and by that time it'll probably be cheaper. o:)

@Hughesy Fair shout I say, I used to do the same with Telltale's games but I've got to the point where I want them as soon as an episode is out :p Even though Telltale take the absolute pish with gaps between episodes now.
When it is a full game though, I'll let you know for sure if it's worth buying, but I'm hugely impressed with episode 1 at least!

Didn't know Techland had a patch out for Dying Light yesterday :) Maxed out all graphics settings and it seems all fine now, even seems to have spread out the load on the CPU more evenly! Love it when a patch doesn't make a game worse (I'm turning a hard glare in your direction Ubisoft).

Don't think I've had a patch download, I'll have a look later. Like I said in the PC thread, setting view distance to 100% made GPU usage lower when it should be higher. Maybe thats what they fixed.

Edit: You were right, I can max it now. I did post about the issue that I thought was causing the low frame rate last night, and it looks like that's one of the things they fixed. :D

@RevolvingPrawn Cool halfway through the game, and there's a new map in Dying Light :D
I'd heard rumours about that, but I didn't wanna search and spoil any surprise for myself :p Don't tell me anything about it, all I wanna know is if you can go back to the first whenever you want?
I'm not actually sure, I think you can. I only just got to it and haven't done anything yet, so I'm not totally sure. I still have side quests from the other map, so I presume I can go back.

Downloaded the Telltale Game of Thrones today. Only two parts out so far but it's pretty good if you're into the TV show.
I've played through the latest Dragon Age as well. Excellent game. Now the painful wait for the next Mass Effect or remastered trilogy.
Ventured back to nostalgia land and played Tekken too. Ah the memories.

Yeah I agree after seeing what they've done with inquisition it's making me even more keen for ME4. We've still got at least another year before we see it though as last I heard it's not coming until 2016. I do think they'll be releasing some bits and pieces about the game this year at the various gaming conventions. I just hope they can fix the issues with ME1's problems with newer processors though if they do rerelease it the black blocks glitch is really annoying.

Fortunately there is a workaround on PC but it's still annoying none the less


Besides I'd be surprised if we didn't see some DLC's in the meantime for inquisition to keep us busy in the meantime as well. Especially as Inquisition has been received pretty positively as far as I know for the most part.

BTW @Wynterdust do you have access to the Blood dragon Armour in ME2 as I know I should have access to it sa I own the ultimate version of Origins as well as ME2 yet it's not showing up on mine

Same here. Going to have to start another playthrough I think as it's been an unusually long time since I last played it and especially since I've had marathons of watching the Farscape TV series. Back in the mood for it again now.
Yeah I'd imagine this year they'll be talking about it now that Inquisition is released. To be honest I'm surprised not much has been released about it since it'll be three years in March since the last one was released. Hopefully it isn't just a simple remaster and they do indeed fix some of the issues, no matter how minor. They have been asking for ideas of what people would want in a remaster so with a bit of luck there might even be some new stuff. Don't know how much exactly though.

There should have been a code in the Origins box. Did you get it brand new or preowned? I don't have the armour myself as I bought Mass Effect quite a while after I had Dragon Age and I completely forgot about the code. By the time I remembered it the code had expired!

I think I bought it new as I do that with most of my games as I bought both for PC. I don't tend to go second hand with PC's. You open yourself up to a lot of trouble with second hand PC games as I've found quite a few over the years that don't work so I generally go new. Consoles I sometimes do because it is easier and cheaper to afford the games second hand on the console. Just depends on the game though. I did put in the code and it's accepted it but for some reason it's not showing up so I don't know. it has lft me scratching my head. Shame really as I do like that armour in ME3 I just wish I could use it in 2 as well especially given I'm supposed to be entitled to it. At least I think I am seeing as I own both games

Yeah I've got Farscape on DVD good series. I'm working through Star Trek Voyager again at the moment though. I love all the Star Trek series. I've got a lot of sci fi/fantasy series on DVD.


For me it was the other way around I bought ME first and then DA as I know although they were new copies I do remember getting them on the cheap as I only paid £15 to get both ME's 1 and 2. ME3 is the only one I paid full price for. But after seeing what they had done with 1 and 2 I couldn't resist :p. It was somewhere between getting 1 and 2  and getting 3 that I got DA Origins and DA2. Glad I did though as they're all excellent games. I've got to hand it to Bioware they know how to write excellent stories and make a compelling single player game. I just hope they keep them coming for many years to come.

That's odd then. The only other thing I can think of is whether you got the email in game saying about it. On mine it says the code expired in June 2011 so if you did it after that that could be why it didn't work. I'll have a look on the Bioware forum a bit later and see if there's anything on it.
Yeah one of the best series I've seen in recent years (even if it over a decade old!). The characters are brilliant. They don't make series like they used to. Only been a few recently that I've personally thought are any good. Never got round to watching Star Trek either (I'm very late in starting to watch TV series!) Mass Effect has got me into it all as it was never something I was interested in before. It was only by chance I played Mass Effect as I knew it was made by the same company that made Dragon Age and gave the demo a chance and loved it. I missed out big time but on the positive side it meant I could play all three without having to wait!
Definitely. Yet to play a bad game from them despite some fans saying DA2 and ME3 were supposedly bad games. Didn't see anything wrong with them myself.  They're supposed to be releasing a brand new IP that I think they're announcing this year. No idea what it is yet but quite looking forward to seeing what it is.

Saw that a few days ago but I didn't post it cos I figured you'd seen it :p Some awesome news though, the support for this game has been outstanding so far, and it's great! A huge contrast to the 'support' that most companies give their games after release.

Have you seen the options program? Can't remember what it's called exactly, but it lets you change loads of graphical options, a bunch of which aren't in the game options :)

But they only announced it around an hour ago mate. They said a while back that they support mods, but today they announced proper mod tools.  ;) This proves my point, if they'd announced it a few days ago, PC Gamer would've wrote and article about it then.

Yea I've seen the program, but it's pointless as its only for making the graphics worse, so I won't need it. o:)

Either way, they said they want to do everything to encourage modders with this game so it's not a surprise ;) But it is awesome!
