Re: Metal music

Hey yo all, long time metal fan reporting in. Since I come from Finland, I guess it's somewhat in my veins. I've always had a tendency for heavy-heartedness and melancholy, to which I've found metal music suiting. I don't think the music brings me down, but instead helps me deal with feelings that w...

Re: When did riding a bike become so painful?

The end of the bone that comes from the arm should be neatly placed in the round-like cup in the shoulder part, it's been shifted to lower-left in the picture.

Re: When did riding a bike become so painful?

Bicycling can be painful, or at least lead to pain. I was riding my bicycle to Church on a sunday morning in February 2011 in -20 Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit) with snow and ice everywhere. Long story short, fell down in an intersection, super painful, called wife at church (had gone already before me), a...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Yuppers, sorry for fading on the PBEM-multiplayer, it was frustratingly slow. I would suggest if we try to fire up a game, we do it live. Start a game and continue it whenever it's suitable for all. I picked up BNW when it came out and I like it (although it's rather pricy). The most essential part ...

Re: DOTA 2 - Worth My Time?

DOTA 2's an excellent game, but that doesn't mean it'd be good for everybody. Like I wrote in the recent CCGR review , it is quite a harsh game, but exceedingly rewarding at times. If you guys want, I could walk you through a game. Poke me up in Steam and we'll put up a game against bots and I'll t...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Hmm yeah the gaming, at the current pace at least, is rather laborous. I posted my turn now. I guess Scotch ain't gonna make this game. Even with just the three of us, it would take years to play this through with the current speed... how would you guys feel if we raised the bar to 1 day per turn si...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Just a reminder that I submitted my turn couple days ago, didn't think I'd manually post about it here anymore. Been your turn Arch :)

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

I almost always build right off, unless I see a much better spot immediately close by. Don't want to waste time looking around this early. Good luck, Scotch! Hopefully it works for you! Same here, I always just build the capital at the spot where the game starts. I think the algorithm for generatin...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

No probs :) Just be aware that the AI will perform the turn for you if the timer runs out I think.

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Alright guys, the game is on.

I have uploaded the first hotseat savegame to the Multiplayer Robot -service. See if it works, I think it's ArchAngel's turn first after me.

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

I don't think you need to do anything besides logging in with Steam and accepting the game invite somehow. I haven't been able to test the game start procedure myself - everybody I tried to get to test with me were too hesitant to log in with Steam account :) and it wouldn't let me try start a solo ...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Alright guys and gals, time to move from words to action ! I've set up a test game with this Multiplayer Robot site/mod that Arch suggested. So far it looks very promising, although the game customization options were rather limited. This is kind of a Play By E-mail concept, players do not have to b...

Re: FTL

I played it through; It's a nice game, nice unique concept taking rogue-likes to the space sims! That being said, I have to say that it did get repetitive rather fast, meaning I often utilized the very same tactic to take down whatever enemy I came upon. I probably won't play through it again, but c...

Re: Civilization V multiplayer thread

Okay, sorry for being so passive on this matter. Glad you guys are excited! Here's my proposition: We do first a "quick" test game. We team up people in teams of 2, with one player more experienced, so that he or she may be able to instruct and give hints to the other half during the game. We also i...
