Re: Heroes of the Storm

The Winter Veil event has started. Not overly frustrating from the look of things... just need to play/win games to unlock the reindeer mount. Also more rewarding with that mount. Going through the patch notes - apparently Stitches stomach capacity has increased - he can now gorge on Tychus while t...

Gaming chair help

So at work we get to choose our 10 year gift ourselves. Budget is running to around $250. While I dont mind the current chair that Im using for my gaming PC, it is getting on a bit, so I thought a new gaming chair I dont have to actually pay for would be a good idea. Been doing some limited research...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I'm assuming Amazon AU will have some sort of sale at some point - prices aren't exactly what I'd think of as launch worthy yet. Even some rather odd pricing: PS4/XB1 versions of Star Wars BFII are $39, PC version $75 :P Yep, noticing similar things... Shop front is also horrible to navigate and fi...

We get overtime pretty much every time we need it. I had 2 1/2 hours OT today, and we got 8/9 charges guilty on this prick. Still have 1 charge in contention, goes back in Feb (he's locked up during that time).
So court went OK?

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I'm in need of a good mobile game to keep me happy. I'm playing a lot of Plague Inc. but I'm getting kind of bored of it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm a fan of RPG's, simulation games, strategy games and management games. Anything in the latest Humble mobile bundle? https://www.humblebundl...

Re: Steam Controller

They're on sale occasionally, not sure about the discount though. You can get one for ~$65 (49.99 USD) with free shipping from Amazon (it ships to Australia)

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - October 2017

Caved into the $1 tier for the RPG humble bundle... I think my ARPG collection in Steam is complete with Van Helsing now. I should probably get around to pulling it out of my inventory and installing it - one of the last games I bought before those rule changes around Steam inventory storage came in.

EDIT: Well that's incredibly easy to do. Done in about 5~15 minutes. Had to try two different rom versions of Chrono Trigger because the first one was giving me a black screen after the title, this might be something of a hurdle and require a bit of trial and error going forward, but overall this i...

Re: Heroes of the Storm

Was hoping for an Overwatch roster specialist - but ah well :P.

EDIT - after watching the spotlight video - assassin or not - he looks like fun - and could have some good strategy - such as knocking people behind enemy walls - ala Garrosh. That and the rocket ultimate looks awesome.

Finally finished off Wolfenstein the Old Blood - forcing myself to play through stuff on the pile of shame has its benefits :P
