League of Legends is an awesome game and we need more channers who play it! So farm me, Madame Maria and Makani play it on a daily basis but we would love it if more people turned out to try it!

I have skype and would be willing to help out newcomers to this game if you would like to try.

I use to play LoL religiously until I started Fire Academy just this week so my play time is pretty much cut to only on weekends.

I'm on the NA server. I main Maokai (AP tank) or hit up Brand (squishy AP) when I feel like blowing shit up. My LoL name is in the email field.

I heard that while playing Lux, the harder you hit your r key the more damage your ult does.

>Tanking can test the patience of a saint
No kidding. Especially when people instant lock-in squishy characters and then always bitch for someone to go tank. Then they fail as a carry and you can't do shit because your a tank with four idiots on your team.

Minecraft? Fuck that unrealistic time waster. This game here is


Sure, in Minecraft, you have complete creative control, but therein lies a problem. You have no way of actually losing the game. In Dwarf Fortress, you have to carefully balance a fortress that's constantly on the verge of self-implosion.

Think of it like minecraft multiplayer, except every player is a suicidal, murderous drunkard who threatens to unleash the very bowels of hell itself if the dining room isn't legendary.

Me and Turret were talking in #tf2chan when we decided we should totally open up a succession game for you maggots.

It'll start off with Turret and myself, and then each of you maggots in turn.

I come to you with a tale, friends
A tale of dwarf fortress.

The mountain sparkled with rare gems
The halls were carved of aluminum
(We filled our mouths with cinnamon)
Word of our rare riches reached widely
Migrants from the mountainhome mingled
And soon the great engravings of our walls
Made home to 45 souls.
Yet of iron, weapon-metal, we were poor
And our wapentake could muster merely poor things:
Copper hammers, leather armor
No fit armament for fighting-men.
We traded what we had for what was brought us

I'm having trouble figuring this game out. I can't. Get. The damn. Stairs. To work.

No farms! No hunters, no butchers. My dwarves are getting mighty tired of eating plants.

ALL MY FRIENDS PLAY THIS. I think they're all secretly masochists.
>> No. 1314
Are you designating a down stair on one level, and then an up stair on the exact same spot a level below? Or you can do up/down stairs to go both ways, but you still need to have designated it on both levels, not just one.

Personally I do not like to use up/down stairs - I always build Stair Halls with two sets of stairs in them - because if you just go with up/downs dwarves can trip and fall down the stairs and they'll just keep falling down ALL of them all the way through your entire fortress and then end up hurt and it's bad times.

Farming: http://df.magmawiki.com/index.php/How_do_I_build_a_farm%3F

For EVERYTHING I really really suggest you get a copy of Dwarf Therapist if you don't already have it, so you can make sure you have hunting/fishing/butchering and other jobs enabled (I've been spoiled by using the Lazy Newb Pack from the start, so I ONLY know how to do that through DT, I have no idea how you enable and disable labors through the actual game menu). Once you have a dwarf with fishing enabled, or a dwarf with hunting enabled and a crossbow and some bolts for him to hunt with, the dwarf should automatically go out and start finding you some food without your having to tell him to do anything.

Well, ok. I'm aware I'll get no responses or whatever, just bitchin' around there.
Ok so. I finished Mirror's Edge and it left me kinda hollow inside. The story was fucking too short, I'd prefer it longer for at least 5 or 6 chapters. And the plot is shit. And characters are helpless.
And there's a giant BUT. I loved it absolutely. See, I know it's full of flaws, but the style of game (run the walls! jump the pipes! see those shithead cops go mad while you circle around them for five minutes straight!) and the actual supportful enviroment around just grew on me.
I loved Fahrenheit, despite stupid ending. Now, when I finished ME, I found that I want more interesting, no - absorbing games with no or just a little fighting, and still action. And a companion or some support. (Ok, Lucas was alone too, but then again, all your questions were answered.) Honestly, I'm asking for help 'cause I don't know where to start searching, and whether games like this even exist.

Well, Portal 1 and 2 fit that description perfectly (both great), but you probably already knew about those. Hmm...

Phoenix Wright on the Nintendo DS (also on GBA, Wii, iOS) fits your description somewhat. It's basically a menu based adventure game but instead of absurd adventure game logic you use real logic to figure out the contradictions in the witness testimonies, present evidence and so forth. The investigation parts can be a bit slow, but the characterization and humor make up for it. Courtroom trials are where the real fun is, and there's plenty of action to be had there and when the case takes a dramatic turn in your favor it feels pretty awesome.

It kind of also depends on how strict you are with the requirements of the game being absorbing and having little to no combat. For example, Psychonauts has some combat and it's a platformer, but majority of it is against figments of people's imagination, thus you could say it's mostly nonviolent. There's plenty of wonderful things in this game too, like the music, stylized graphics, level design, originality, characters and dialogue. Yahtzee's review: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/2-Psychonauts Best played on PC with a gamepad, and if you have an AMD GPU you need to look for a workaround for a FPS drop later in the game, the solution can be found on Steam forums.

ALL fps have now Some things shitting from CoD but if we exclude the energy bar and "limit " of weapons to 2, we have the true Duke, with all his machismo, the visceral hatred for the aliens, beautiful women, and especially the most ignorant of gameplay this year and perhaps last year (after some obvious games).
The problem is only one: it only came out later but, you know, better late than never.

I haven't seen a thread along these lines, so I hope this is the right place to put this.

I am building (or rather, paying for and getting my little brother to build) a brand new rig. We're aiming for around $600-800AUD. I have been gaming on a laptop for a couple of years, and it's starting to fail me.

I have no idea what I'm looking for, here.

I want to be able to play new games on high graphics settings. I want to be able to have Firefox open in the background with no negative effect on the game. I want a wireless card. I want at least 1TB HDD. It would also be nice to have a Blu-ray read/write drive and clear casing, but I understand not all things are achievable when one is aiming for such a low price range.

I've had Ashe suggest an nVidia GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card. I now look to the rest of you wonderful people for help.

In addition, I thought a rig-discussing thread could be interesting, as well.

ITT: Games with endings that surprised you.

Pic extremely fucking related, I did not expect any of that. So it turns out that Kratos has feelings other than rage and has tremendous issues with his paternal instincts, and that he's capable of caring about people other than himself and his dead family. I was completely shocked when he sacrificed himself to release hope into the world instead of killing Athena. That is some fucking hardcore character development. Shit genuinely moved me and made me want to cry. Fuck you, God of War. This is not what I thought this series was about. ;___;

PROTIP: If you post spoilers for relatively new games that not everyone has played yet without using spoiler tags, you're a faggot.

Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Seriously game. Seriously. Everyone is dropping acid and sharing the SAME hallucination? And they all just HAPPEN to HALLUCINATE that they are dead before opening the box? I am sorry but that is bullshit and you know it. You're lucky I'm such a big fan.

Prototype Alex Mercer is dead, having died in Penn Station after he released the virus that killed a whole hell of a lot of people. The name of this virus is Blacklight. Guess who you are? Yeah, go figure. You're in Alex's body because you reanimated it, and have been running around believing yourself to be him. Life sucks, huh? On the bright side, though, at least you're not the complete and utter monster that the real Alex Mercer was.

I admit that I wasn't even sure the game was about to end until I beat the boss and the credits started rolling. I said aloud, "Oh, that's it?"
Wish I hadn't lost my copy though. I have no idea where it went, I think someone stole it.

Chi and I just finished this game yesterday and my concluding opinion is MORE PEOPLE NEED TO PLAY IT

For anyone who hasn't heard of it yet: It's an adventure mystery game by Shu Takumi, the man responsible for the Phoenix Wright games. You take the role of Sissel who just now lost his memory and his life on a scrapyard. But being dead has one advantage - Sissel gains special powers that allow him to investigate his own mystery and save the lives of others to gain info.

The basic idea is that you can interact with objects and manipulate them to change fate and save people's lives. The puzzles are fun, varied and fair - Just some trial and error parts here and there.
The graphic and the music are stylish and wonderful; the music is done by Sugimori Masakazu who brought us the soundtrack for the first Phoenix Wright game. The animation has a lot of care put into it.

The less I say about the plot, the better, because any spoilers would just take away from the experience. I can just say it's of a quality you'd expect from the creator of Phoenix Wright. The plot is dense, the characters are great and you find yourself attached to them quicker than you can imagine.

So if you like Phoenix Wright, mystery or hell, just have some time to spend, PLAY IT
You will not be disappointed.

For future discussion, use this thread too - Just make sure to put spoiler tags where applicable!
