Yeah, you bastards! About the Steam group. You should all come jump on the UKCS servers for TF2 at some point. :D

I'm usually causing trouble on one of the frankly ridiculous 32 man servers. :D Join the UKCS forums, too! Great bunch of people if ever there was.

Also? WAR update is nothing short of awesome. Demoman with sword and shield?! WOO!

Well, my fortress has crumbled. Countless rotting corpses litter the hallways as dwarf after dwarf died from a combination of starvation, dehydration, ballistae arrow, goblin hoard, and insanity. There are only two survivors: Dastot Giginkûbuk, a member of the Fortress Guard who has declared himself Mayor and is demanding that rope reed items are manufactured; and Urvad Tabarkogan, a young child who has, for reasons probably best left unknown, no clothes on and 22 pet cats. Soon this fortress shall be abandoned, left to the merciless Goblin civilisation which has coveted it's treasures for over a quarter of a century. Rest well, Kikrostlektad, otherwise known as Stockadelures, your majesty shall never be forgotten.

NERD RAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :x :x :x

Those fucking NPC followers are bags of shit, mainly that Ian. I was happy farming Deathclaws for exp, lvling like a beast then that fucking jeb end goes and shoot my party, kills Dogmeat and Katja in one burst. What really pissed me off was he hit them for mega damage, when normal he does like 3 damage to npc.
Is there a mod or a patch that fixes their targeting coding?

10/10 in Edge? They`re pretty tight with their scores normally as well...I played the demo of this and thought it was rubbish. Then again I thought Fallout 3 was insanely boring also and that seems to be everyone else`s favourite ever game. I`m currently addicted to Left4Dead2.

Installed Rise Of Nations this morning. The armageddon counter is the most annoying thing ever, you get ICBMnukes and find out you can only use 10, and your enemy raises their missle shield just after that anyway so it's pointless.

Got Assassin's Creed II for crimbo and I'm loving it. I'm not very far into it yet, but it's already wiping the floor with the first game. Win.

An old friend sent me his spare copy of the first Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast for Xmas, because I've never been able to get hold of it.

Erm, one of the major put offs for me in that kind of game is bad dialogue.

"Prepare yourself! This is an ambush!"

It's failed ten minutes in already :rolleyes: :lol:

The best part of Baldur's Gate is getting the Girdle of Gender Reversal. :lol:
