Yeah I've seen krillin around as well and destructo disc is pretty badass. Piccolo hasn't taught me special beam cannon yet I guess that will be his last one, I intend to learn from as many people as I can though. Hopefully it will be quicker after the first one :lol:

On the penultimate level of Tomb Raider.
Got past the section that had me stuck 2 years ago much easier this time around - fortunately I've been keeping a steady stock of ammo, whereas last time I went in with next to none.
So far I'm finding it hard to fault the game too much. It's a bit irritating where I'm at as samurais are harder to kill than the usual enemies, but I'm getting the hang of dodging and countering. Just irritating having to learn it now, but I suppose samurais aren't going to be using rifles :lol:

So, Danganronpa is an ace game - provided you like visual novels, Phoenix Wright, anime cliches, inappropriately upbeat music and pop-art styled violence. I like all these things. I've already sunk a good 8 hours in to it since Sunday... oops.

Reported for hacking 3 games in a row on CS:GO competitive :lol:

Obviously I wasn't, was just people raging as per usual. Did get two rather ridiculous aces in one game though :P

Isn't it a 'timed' exclusive? (ie PS4 will possibly get it in 6 months or something)

True, but that's still a massive kick in the pants for anyone with a PS3.
I was thinking of getting an Xbone or cheap 360 once I'm settled in a job after moving back to England, though.

Picked up an Xbone yesterday, haven't had time to play anything other than a couple of games of FIFA (in which there is admittedly a massive gulf between its quality between generations, certainly graphically) but fuck me do these installation times take the piss. it took around 5 hours to install the Master Chief Collection from disc, Unity took an hour, then another 90 minutes to update itself, and Forza 5 is on 42% after around 3 hours.

Is there any way of speeding the process up? Because these times seem ridiculous.
