Just started Playing Mount & Blade: Warband.  It's pretty awesome, but removing the damage resistance bonuses makes my character have to live like a pauper.  Any tips or suggestions for brilliant mods?  Bonus points if they're fantasy based.

Do you mean the 1/4 damage taken option for your main character? That's why I quit playing. It's great when you're playing in an unrealistic mode but the second you make your character as vulnerable as everyone else you're knocked off in the initial charge :)
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

Prophecy of Pendor is a pretty good fantasy-based mod for M&B. Adds a decent amount of stuff to do into the game.

I finally won FLT, go me.
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I heard there is also a Game of Thrones mod for Mount & Blade? Has anyone tested it?

It's a mod for M&B - it's not tested

UI insanity. I'm using the next 24 hours to relearn WoW tanking with my warrior since I haven't touched her in a year.

Still tweaking the UI. Too much info on the screen at once right now:

Looks like Dragon's Dogma online:

It's not though but still interesting. Supposed to be out mid next year.

I bought ftl.  I spent a good portion of my day zipping about space.  Only made it to the boss once, but I've unlocked 3 ships and having a blast being blasted into pieces with the stealth cruiser.

No just mostly luck. Eventually you'll get a run where weapons are dropping left and right and you'll just blaze through it.

They dropped the ball on balancing it.

They didn't drop the ball, they outright didn't try to balance it. It's a roguelike.

I recorded a bunch of planetside 2 footage earlier only to realize it was recording in 360p with no audio.



If I can figure out how to get it recording in at least 720p with audio I'll upload some actual gameplay if anyone is interested.

XCOM (the new one (no, not the fps)) has a demo on Steam now.  Just thought that may be of interest to a few people here.

No, it's just really hard/random.

Also, the starting ship (type A at least) just kinda sucks.  The only run I beat it was with the Torus.

Anyone still playing Dark Souls on the PC? Just started NG+ at level 80. Looking forward to hitting 120 so I can get in on the arena pvp action.

Played the demo last night, I'm glad I pre-ordered.  It was a lot of fun.

Can't argue with that.  The company has a pretty great track record and I've been playing it without pause since my last post, so make of that what you will.

X-Com demo looks amazing. I'm preordering off Steam.

Finally!  Do yourself a favour and grab a copy.

A little pricey for an alpha :( It's $30


Game doesn't look worth it for $30.  Maybe $10-20, but Torchlight 2 at $20 makes me really rethink a lot of game prices now these days.

I still think of £40 as being the base price for a game.  Not sure if I'm keen on the massive devaluation that's been happening for the last couple of years.

Also, could someone tell me which of the new generation of mech games is looking best?

I could, if I wasn't about to sign an NDA for Hawken.  :(

A friend playing Mech Warrior has had nothing but complaints.
