Question for those in the know, because I'm too lazy to hunt around online; How does 2 interact with 1 if you own both? I seem to remember it being mentioned that 2 will effectively work like an expansion if you own the first, but that doesn't need the first.

[edit] Never mind, it was right there in the FAQ. Combined map! FAQ link

I stopped using Razer after three consecutive models of keyboard and mouse all developed faults in under a year and had to be RMA'd. Stuck it out as I was determined to enjoy them, but never could. The Corsair mouse I bought after has lasted a solid five years without so much as a squeak.

The second new single-player mode is the Challenge Mode. This mode presents the player with crazy and wild match situations, which have to be solved within a single turn with a set of pre-rolled dice. These challenges could be anything from sending a Thrall six-feet-under, pushing an ogre off the pitch, or scoring the most improbable touchdown of your Blood Bowl career.

I had considered making a mini game along these lines once. Seemed a good kind of mini puzzle game. Also a great way to understand the finer points of play and player skills.

Amazon; It must be an election year in Britain
(or are they appointed, birthright, knighted or some other such wizardry?)

We just had a hilarious mess of an election a few months back, so it's not that. And they're appointed by moistened bints lobbing scimitars.

Every time this list comes up I'm confused how there are still enough people who a) don't own Sims 4 and b) want Sims 4

Surely it hit saturation point a long time ago

Seems to me this is only available after the 10th... btw, Skaven confirmed (yeah, I know I am late for this, but I completely missed that some press leaked that info)

I will get this game just because of Skaven ^^

Are they confirmed for this (which I own) or the upcoming second part/sequel/whatever that's coming some time?

Washington-based U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly also pointed out that the commission was an advisory body that does not have legal authority to compel states to hand over the data

But still..

Ads in pm's is what made me stop using ICQ back in 2005

It's good to see big corps always fall for the same pits

I'd forgotten all about ICQ. I think I adopted early enough that I only had 5 digits in my ID too. Oh how we forget. Or at least I do...

Can we stop linking to sites that circumvent Ad Blocker?

I'd totally support this. I have had many articles I've not bothered reading because they insist I disable my blocker or whitelist them. Ironically one was about reducing adverts in TV programming

Ultimately, cricket is a game you get drunk while watching. The drinks tent is about the same size as the pitch at our (relatively famous) local cricket festival.

Has there ever been a stranger, more incomprehensible game than Cricket? Except maybe Whackbat?

Your version of football is as alien to us in the UK as cricket is to you guys I guess? We grow up with it, while we have to actually be taught what the hell is going on in "American Football", and then only if we're interested. That said, the various rules for when two sides draw or win based on rain calling off play blows my mind to this day.

If only there was a place locally where I could try it out.

Bizarrely, we have just had a shipping container appear in our town center labelled as 'virtual reality orchestra'. It's literally a shipping container with a chair and a rig in it. I daren't try it, as it reminds me too much the set of a torture scene from an 80s action movie. Half expect there to be a thug stood nearby with rags around his knuckles.

Old man Eidolon disapproves of these shenanigans.

So pleased I wasn't the only one who immediately thought of this. I think that may actually be the first game I played on a home computer.

It seems I go too hard and burn out and come back years later and forget whats what. Is it worth pushing on?

Exactly the same problem. I loved it to hell and played too hard too fast, hit second area, and haven't touched it in two years and can't remember what's what now.

In other shock news, viewers are part of TV business, and hungry people are part of the dining experience.

Absolutely adored the original, and hope Rebellion can manage to recreate what made it good. Not sure how confident I am of that though!

Having a total blast with it on PS4. As infuriatingly hard as I remember the old version being, but great fun
