Aye it's a superb game. I really enjoyed it when I borrowed it off a mate. I wasn't really expecting to like it either as I really haven't liked any Tomb Raider game I have ever played.

I'll pick it up for Xbox one or ps4 when its cheap on one of them. I did play a bit of it when it came out for 360, but not a lot.

I think I'm going to stick with a warlock when destiny gets its full release. I played briefly as a ranger in the alpha, and I'm playing as a titan on the Xbox one beta, but the warlock is my favourite by far.

I was sort of online but then I wasn't. Kept on asking me to sign in at the xbox live screen in game. Though I might have been banned for trash talking in game chat so watch this space. :lol:

Destiny moon mission was sweet. Apparently there's a massive underground cave system but I didn't want to explore it. Also played a match on the moon last night 32-2. Booooooom. :lol:

Gutted the beta ends tonight, but at least TLOU is out on Friday. :yes:

I got a temp ban (3 day) from Guild Wars for that once... Made it fairly difficult since I was our team's main frontline, caller and strategist. Did give them a chance to practice without me, and play less bravely than usual.

I have never been banned despite my best efforts. Had a tonne of player reviews for trash talk and unsporting behaviour but yeah that's it.

This is how it went.

*Waiting for one of our chaps to get ready*
"Okay, everyone ready?"
"One sec"

Trash talking idiots in the Random Arena area the day before. Their mods were slow.

Me and my more fluent mate were speaking Spanish at a pair of French guys two days ago. We were a bit less direct with the piss take, but the sentiment was there. It's the same language. :lol:



I had to let him take the lead on that one though, my 2 years of Spanish class had been exhausted in around 30 seconds. :lol:

Started Borderlands as the hunter guy, not sure if I like or not as of yet, but hit level 10 quickly enough, even if I got battered a couple of times.

the first one? bloodwing is insane if you level him right. i prefer playing as the soldier if i play solo, usually putting my points into the medic tree (something i really missed in 2) but the hunter is good as well.

Aye the first one. Enjoying the game mechanics and whatnot, my only real gripe is the never ending spawning of enemies at times which always seems to happen just as my ammo runs out.
