  1. I've got gold on both of the other DMR's and I'm currently stuck on the AUG so this might be exactly what I was looking for. I mainly play hardcore so the swordfish is godlike, and I'm struggling to adjust to the AUG. I'll definitely give this a try.

    Factorio will never be in the sale, the developers have said that they won't reduce the price. It's well worth the money as it stands though, I've played hundreds of hours, it's fantastic.
  3. I think the idea is stretching out the match for more kills and more xp, but I might be wrong. Need to have a look at the medals screen and see what xp you get for doing what. I'm happy enough to hoover up all the tags, I'm always mindboggled when I see my team running straight past tags that deny an enemy kill. It's 50 points towards a streak just sitting there

    Brian Eno’s Ambient Works

    I've never really got Neroli either, I think I fundamentally don't understand what he's trying to say, or what it's purpose is. I'm sure I'm missing something? Have a look for thursday afternoon, that's one of my favourite Eno albums. It's one piece just over an hour long, and doesn't really change a great deal over the course of it, but there are subtle changes which you could possibly call sections. I usually listen to it on long flights, it's definitely my music for airports.

    Thanks very much, it was all done in reason. The synths are the thor and the europa, and the shimmering high frequency stuff is the wineglass sound in the klang sampler. There's also a mellotron sample which is the strings which appear halfway through to the right of the stereo. I thought the mellotron really made it sound a bit too much like Brian eno's thursday afternoon, but nobody's mentioned that so far, which is good. The VHS plugin is called audio degradation suite, it's a Reaktor plugin so some kind soul made it and uploaded it to the reaktor library for people to download for nothing. The settings I used are dialled back quite a lot, you can really mangle audio with it, but I decided to be brave and just shoved it straight on the mix bus and worked around what it was doing.

    I made a new ambient track, and even made a video to go with it. I used a VHS tape compression plugin to make the whole mix sound slightly mangled, like it was taped off the telly in 1988, and I'm pleased with the way it came out. The video isn't tremendously exciting, but I recorded it with my phone the last time I was in Japan, and I thought it fitted quite nicely.

    It looks like they've realised, this is gone now, which is a real shame. I just got given £30 of amazon vouchers as a leaving present from work, and this would have been perfect. Ho hum!

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    I was playing the daily today, and there are some crazy combos you can pull off. The starting deck is all the rare cards, so the fun stuff is already in the deck. I ended up using bullet time to use burst on nightmare three times, so I ended up with a hand full of glass knives. Believe it or not, the enemy died this turn

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Yeah, you have to opt into the beta for it to be available. It's tricky because for most of the cards, the artwork hasn't been finalised and you can't instantly identify a card and what it does by seeing artwork that you know. A lot of them just have a generic card back and BETA across the middle. I think I might opt back out and come back when it's all finished. The new character has some interesting mechanics, but there's a lot to learn.

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Also, how is everyone finding the new character? I can't quite get my head around it at the moment, I'm still trying to figure out a good strategy. I've got most of the way through the third floor, but still not managed to complete the game with them.

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Just had a fun game of this. I got poisons fairly early so started to build around that. Ended up with two copies of Nightmare (put three copies of a card in your hand next turn) so I copied Catalyst like crazy and this happened.

    I've got a key for Kerbal Space Program to give away, send me a PM! Usual rules apply, if you're very new or don't post much it will go to someone I do know from this thread or the wider forum. Gone, reach for the stars!

    Slay the Spire - Roguelike Card-em-up

    Just looking at your last deck there, and there's a few things that jump out at me, not that I'm an ironclad expert by any means. Dropkick is pretty pointless, it's energy neutral but only does 5 damage, or eight when upgraded and you only get the effect if the enemy is weak. Pommel strike does much more damage and always draws a card. Armaments is pretty crap unless you upgrade it, because then it upgrades every card in your hand. Even after all that it's really fucking slow, and I try not to take it. I think I would have skipped thunderclap and iron wave as well. If there was a shrug it off offered, that gives more block and also draws a card. Clothesline is great, but really expensive at 2 energy, if you play that you'll only be playing one block that turn. With demon form, you've basically got a poison build there, it will eventually win automatically, you just need to thin out the deck and get some bigger blocks I think. You could also use headbutt to pull out a block for the next turn. In other news someone in the steam discussions posted almost the exact same thing - 'Why do I keep getting smashed?' but he's up to 75 deaths without a win. I'd say you're doing ok! Keep at it, and try a smaller deck. Make sure you try to block all damage rather than finishing a room faster.
