I would play more, but I found out right after trying to use my new video card that I needed a more powerful power supply to run it while gaming. I was able to use my PC for simple stuff, but the power supply just couldn't handle gaming. The new PS came yesterday, and I've actually been playing the new Tombraider, which is pretty **** good so far. It reminds quite a bit of Uncharted, which is probably the best exclusive series the PS3 has.


This makes me happy that I let obsessive compulsive Zam geeks teach me how to build my comp. Their advice? Buy a way more powerful power supply than you need right now so you can upgrade later.

I started the new Tomb Raider and liked it so far but I've been sick the last few days and crashing out by 6-7pm or so. So I haven't played anything since the weekend.

I haven't tried TR yet. I grabbed one of the Bioshock/TR codes off Ebay, but haven't even bothered to redeem my Steam code yet. Too much TERA. Smiley: lol

New tomb raider is tempting me.

Oddly enough I am just kinda pushing myself to complete Batman Arkam City. It's just not grabbing me like I thought it would. It's enjoyable enough sometimes but some of the puzzles and prolonged stealth engagements with gun dudes are more annoying than fun.

Neither Batman game really grabbed me.

When AC came out, Flea bought it for me for Christmas. She gave me the package and said "I looked around to see what the big new game was and got you this". My mind immediately said "Skyrim!" and then I had to hide the fact that I felt like the Simpsons episode where Bart gets Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge instead of Bonestorm.

Also, I knew she had paid way too much for it since it was a retail box and was currently on Steam Winter Sale for 50% off. I think that part made me feel worse Smiley: frown

Ya see the thing is I went through a Batman phase in the 90's. We watched the animated series like it was high* art and my buddy had a collection of all the best stuff like "Killing Joke" etc. *(because we were high all the time back then)

So I almost feel obligated to like it. I mean it's neat. I like flying around the city and being all brooding on top of gargoyles. But there is a part of me that has moved on and some of the magic of the early discovery of the characters and storyline is gone.

Plus some of the game-play elements are just overdone. There seem to be way too many riddler puzzles and random explodable walls. I just can't be assed to hack, explodey foam, electro motor power crap every 2 inches of the game. But it hurts my OCD sometimes to just say F it that often every map while trying to get to more fights and story.

Also guys with guns rooms make Batman seem like a wimp. One part of me appreciates the bat ninja stealth of it but Batman should not get shot so easy. Especially since the best way to clear them is kill one, smoke around the room on the statues and do that 4 more times. It just gets kinda tedious.

Take the fighting in Sleeping Dogs in comparison. Similar counter, dodge combo play, but I can smash dudes faces into a telephone booth and everyone enjoys that! Oh and just shoot guys with guns. I know that killing is Batman's hang up and he has deep issues with guns though... so yeah.

This.

Bought AA on the Summer sale, and AC at the Christmas one, or the other way around... either way I like both of them but this is the main reason I don't play.

Also added Splice. Playing Splice was five of the least pleasant minutes I ever spent on my phone and that includes learning that my youngest ****** through his pants and soaked his car seat as I was on my way to the airport to pick him up.

It's in lockboxes, but people are spamming them for the alkahest, so the hats are under 100G on the AH.

Ah. I don't have any desire to own one since I'm not a fan of the anachronistic junk anyway but I never bothered to actually read up on the St. Patrick's Day event/promotions aside from seeing the splash when loading the game.

Out of curiosity, how does one get the keys to lockboxes, anyway? I have a metric ******* of the **** things sitting in my bank and it's bugging me.

On a related note, how hard is it to make money at end game without abusing the cash shop? I was listing some random greens on the AH and decided to check out some of the higher end cloth robes, because, as I've said before, I'm in this game for the pretty dresses, and most of the higher end ones were at around 600g. In vanilla WoW, I made around 20g an hour farming Dire Maul ogres or essences, and if that's around the rate I'd expect to make at high level, I'm not sure I want to spend 30 hours farming even for the prettiest of dresses once I hit high level.

Keys are like 20 for 10 bucks on the Store, and I think you can get some from events, not sure though. You also get keys from subbing. I bought 1 key with the spare I had from a $10 purchase I bought 1 7 day 100% exp boost 1 7day 50% exp boost and 1 key, opened a chest and got a ruby that NPC'ed for 100 gold.

You can also buy keys from other players with in-game currency. Prices seemed to be around 75-85G/ea, but during the event they are much higher. It doesn't seem that you get any keys normally in the game. At least GW2 gave you a key every once in a while.

The keys I had I received from the Valentine's event and a few as compensation from server outages when the F2P conversion happened. Aside from things like that or buying them via the AH, you need to pay cash for them via Elite Membership or Cash Shop.

You can just throw the things up on the broker if you're so inclined. They're selling for a couple gold a piece at the moment.

Did anyone play hide-and-seek with the GMs? I caught the tail-end of the event after work, but didn't have enough time to get involved.

They drop so often, I didn't even think of that. If they all sell, I should be looking at a rather tidy profit.

They don't usually sell for much, as there are so many of them and so few keys for the most part. However for the next couple of days they're dropping extra stuff for the holiday, so their prices are abnormally high.

Edit: I see we were talking about this already, and in retrospect I was fully aware of that. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THERE IS MORE DAY THAN COFFEE! Smiley: motz
