  1. It's the kind of game i would want to take to a desert island with me to play for the rest of my life, but could not get up the motivation otherwise. I'm also extremely non-competitive and would feel no compunction to beat anyone else.
  2. On the recommendation of a colleague, i've bought another copy of Portal 2 and have been playing cooperatively with my lad for the past week. We're having a real blast. I've long been a fan of the Portal series and, to my senses, co-op play is the best of the best. I've probably mentioned many times that cooperative game-play is my 'thing' and being able to work on a game together with my son at the same time is just the best. The sense of achievement at working together toward a common and often seemingly impossible goal is very cool. We sit at 45 degrees to each other, so can turn to see each others screen, as well as being able to see each others POV in the game too. The levels are designed that you simply must work cooperatively to complete each and every one, and the actual level design is first class; requiring real thought to logic it out. There are a lot of levels, but i'm only half way through, so i could tell you how many. We've had around 5 hours game-play so far. I am also told that there are a world of after-market co-op levels to be had. The experience has also told me that i am impatient and have ran out of patience with him a few times. It's taught me that i need to be cooler with him. I am frustrated that he insists on using a controller which, to my mind, severely limits and slows down his control. In spite of my suggestions, he refuses to use the mouse and KB. I feel i need to respect that. Even when it means levels can take far longer to complete. I highly recommend this, and if you have similar co-op experiences with other games suitable for children, i'd love to hear about it. We've played and finished Brothers together years ago, and that was a similarly great experience.
  3. Seems like you're having a lot of fun with the game.
  4. It has a steam-punk-ish look to me.
  5. Means nothing to me, but i guess it might to you.
  6. The only way i would have noticed any of that, is if i was doing a google search. I don't use any of the other stuff. So, for me, that's not the internet. Now if you'd cited, midgetsonpoodles, hamster-anal-fetish or scrotum-nail-fixing i'd have been weeping like a small child.
  7. You're not the first to say similar. Will add it to list. Watching fleabag at the mo. Excellent for very different reasons.
  8. Ahh. The balance between life and a life-worth-living.
  9. Damn it. I only have the high sodium soy sauce <shakes fist at the sun>. Why am i always hindered at the last.
  10. Nice. Thanks. I have everything in that list except the Mirin. But i have seen alternatives in teh interwebz.
  11. Damn you and your application of perfect reason and logic.
  12. I have one more prediction. Jon is a Targaryan and next in line. I reckon, when tested, Drogon recognises this and changes allegiances away from Dani to him. This may even be how she dies, by the fire of her own child... Man that would be a fitting end: Jons last word in the show.... "Dracarys". Even if that isn't true, it fucking should be.
  13. Finished it last weekend. Overall, and in spite of the ill-fitting tower pieces, i enjoyed this quite a lot. Fantastic attention to detail throughout. The front of the finished model shows the external views of all the buildings towers and connected landscape. The rear of the model show all the internals, most classrooms, a few offices, and a few of the more famous set pieces from the movies. It's big. Really big. I installed very deep shelves in my study just to be able to install large models. But this won't fit; it's too deep. I think it's going to have to go on my desk in the study. I've recently added another leaf to the main table, to take a printer. So i'm hoping that i should have the space. In terms of cost and value against quality. All i can say is that i won't be looking at Lego, unless i cannot find a Lepin alternative, or Lepin costs go up. The difference in not enough to justify paying 3-4 times the price. Next project is likely to be either a Super-Star Destroyer, or the Death Star Mk II. Both of which are around £120. Or possibly the UCS Slave I, which is around £70. Lego stopped production of the Death Star Mk II, and you'd be hard pressed to pay less than a couple of grand for it today. I think that i perfect justification for buying Lepin, in that case. Pics inc.
  14. Good to see this revitalised. It has been in my thoughts recently. I still have a small tub frozen from last year. The 2nd batch i made was a tad disappointing. compared to the first. Not quite as smokey, or sweet. We've already had one bbq around a friends, and my thoughts are turning to our regular bash for the neighbours, and the reason i made this last year. I was thinking of doing something different, although i know not what...
