  1. Ah Shem, you're a bad, bad man... Still, I can't blame you fo having fun with the YouTubers. I imagine legions of Revan fanboys running arround Lethon for hours on end trying to find your merchant!
  2. I'd say it'd be extremely likely that many, at least, would be from eastern Northern Ireland. Not many will pick Irish, Scotch-Irish means...little...and there is not a Northern Irish option.
  3. Hope all of my American friends are having a good day! Same to those who are not my American friends, but still Americans. Just slightly less so. I suppose.
  4. I don't really see the problem with restricting their sale to 18s and up. It's the norm here with the likes of Grand Theft Auto, CoD: MW2, Saint's Row/2, Dragon Age. If nothing else its an excellent argument for game developers when someone complains about their content being aimed at kids. And the effect is more or less the same; parents can buy the product for their kids if they want, but if the vendor sells it to an under-age person there are legal penalties under the Video Recordings Act, where there can be a fine up to £5k or allowance for 6 months imprisonment. It doesn't seem to kick up a huge amount of fuss
  5. "New Message: Shepard, Thanks for destroying that base. I REALLY wanted that. You suck, you know that? Never talking to you again. T.I.M." Okay I doubt they'd do that, but still... I wonder how 'temporary' is 'temporary'? I do hope it's long enough for some decent interaction with once-major characters and not (unless its done well) single missions for ALL.
  6. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-13838347 Looks like someone somewhere took something the wrong way...
  7. Aw damn... RIP Randall Mario 'Macho Man Randy Savage' Poffo
  8. YES! One of my absolute all-time favourite franchises back! I do hope they carry on where Blood Money left off this time, unlike the way it was done between Silent Assassin and Contracts (though very much like the lead in from the latter to Blood Money itself). I've been waiting for some official word for ages - thanks for posting Parametric. Will have a reason to watch news out of E3 now - I'd like to see the weapon customisation kept on and a wee bit of graphical development from the last one.
  9. Just played the demo today. While I didn't find it uttery horrible and thus will not be canceling the preorder (certainly looks worth £25 ) just something makes it feel fundmentally different to Origins, I'm not quite sure what. Like others, I wasn't mad on the Mass Effect 1/Awakenings style interaction. Fair enough it was only a very short demo and may have been added to keep major elements out (wouldn't bet on it of course), but it sent the wrong message. Darkspawn textures awful, Lothering simply bizarre, everything else alright on the available settings, near as I could reasonably see at breakneck speed. And damn their 'Spartan' (Halo or 300 certainly...neither of which is meant as a compliment) fighting style, I paused dozens of times, most often during Did anyone else find the second stage scenario exceptionally easy? With upgraded weaponry (assuming) by that point, a higher setting may be needed... Short: not bad, not so far better than Origins, but playable.
  10. I'm thinking of trying a mage the first time out, seeing that seems to be what is heavily hinted at in the trailers (and I played everything but Mage quite frequently last time). I haven;t played the demo yet - might on Sunday (there's no way in hell my connection could withstand a 2GB download at any thime of the day or night). After that maybe a rogue. Honestly I'm surprised the download number has continued to go up - I honestly thought after Tuesday's 400000 odd that'd be the biggest proportion. But I suppose the XBox silver thingy people still haven't got it yet...
  11. 'And Origins fans can go hang' seems the logical conclusion to that sentence...
  12. Much as I would like to play this game, and was looking forward to seeing Rome rendered for AC, I won't be buying for any platform while that permanent Internet nonsense remains in place.
  13. You Are A: Lawful Good Human Monk (3rd Level) Ability Scores: Strength- 14 Dexterity- 14 Constitution- 13 Intelligence- 16 Wisdom- 18 Charisma- 14 Alignment: Lawful Good- A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment because it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest. Race: Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like. Class: Monks- Monks are versatile warriors skilled at fighting without weapons or armor. Good-aligned monks serve as protectors of the people, while evil monks make ideal spies and assassins. Though they don't cast spells, monks channel a subtle energy, called ki. This energy allows them to perform amazing feats, such as healing themselves, catching arrows in flight, and dodging blows with lightning speed. Their mundane and ki-based abilities grow with experience, granting them more power over themselves and their environment. Monks suffer unique penalties to their abilities if they wear armor, as doing so violates their rigid oath. A monk wearing armor loses their Wisdom and level based armor class bonuses, their movement speed, and their additional unarmed attacks per round.

  14. To all those servicepeople who gave their lives over generations, we honour you. To all those who have lost family members to war, you are in our thoughts. To those who have served and who serve today, no matter what may be thought of the politics behind the war you fight, you are held in the highest regard. We will remember you. I wear my poppy proudly, and remember as well in my own family what I have been told of the experiences of my great-great uncle, who fought and was wounded and taken POW in the Great War, my great-grandfather who was a Royal Marine in the same, and other relatives who served in the Army, in the Royal Navy, and in the Merchant Navy in the Great War and the Second World War.
  15. Rockstar + someone who looks like a gangster is generally enough to get me interested, but any more info on what it's about?
