"Ooh what pretty radioactive death" Metalrodent captioned his screenshot. Maybe it's the chems talking, but I have to agree, psychopathic or not.
So close, yet so far.
Being the nice guy that I am, I said I'd also share a clip of him doing something awesome to balance things out - yin and yang.
Or not. Sorry Plas.
A lot of folk have been getting stuck into Dark Souls 3, and whilst Sam was first to the finish, he's had some trouble holding onto his Souls. It all started a couple of weeks ago with the loss of 66,000, but things have only escalated from there.
I have to echo MrkDhn10, but sympathies aren't enough to counter what came next.
Fortunately for him, crippyd - Solver of Problems - has the answer:
I think you need to spend some time at Firelink!
Maybe the big writing will help him remember? "87K just went bye-bye." Nope, I give up.
The Call of Duty reveal was sure to spark some debate. Whilst Rodent and Liam were more interested in Modern Warfare Remastered, Johbhoy69 chose to focus on Infinite Warfare itself. Besides thinking the trailer looks "meh", he laments what looks like the same old formula being reused in yet another CoD game.
"Useless squad mates that get in the way of your shots, having to follow characters and stay low as they tell us when to move, and basically being treated like we've never played a FPS before."
That does sound awfully familiar.
In the other corner is Battlefield 5. Rodent's hoping it goes "back in time" and he's not alone - Confused Johnny remarked: "I honestly thought I wanted a return to WWII, but when rumours circulated weeks back that BF may go even further back, to WWI, I got pretty excited."
If you're thinking about getting Battleborn, you might want to pop into this thread, as Sam's looking for a co-op partner to provide excuse to buy it. Timmeh's the closest he's gotten to someone taking him up on the offer: "I'm tempted but not sure really, played the beta briefly and though it was good, although I had no idea what I was doing. might wait for the reviews and see what they say." Surely the promise of some co-op action should be enough to swing his vote? Come on, I'm trying to do Sam a solid here.
Speaking of co-op, Rob and James shared some thoughts on Fortified and its unique take on tower defence.
If it looks like your kinda thing, keep an eye out for Rob's full written review.
There's no 'i' in team, but there is an 'i' in Liam, who threw all ideas of co-operation away this week, shamelessly stealing a teammate's kill in Halo 5.
After seeing their response, I'm sure we all feel he got what he deserved.
The Overwatch open beta started this week, and runs until 9 May. Rob was lucky enough to go hands-on at an event recently and shared his opinions on the upcoming shooter.
Those of us with early access to the beta jumped into a few games on Wednesday. Whilst we held our own for the most part, the highlight of the night had to be Plasma wing uncharacteristically proving to be an asset to the team.
No videos or pictures exist of this unbelievable feat, so you'll have to take my word for it.
The Indefinite E3 Thread is starting to heat up as we draw closer to next month's event. Bezza unfortunately isn't feeling it this year, only being able to muster enthusiasm for Deus Ex and Mass Effect Andromeda. TippiestRook's in agreement, opining, "I'm feeling the same. There are games I'm excited for, Mass Effect Andromeda and Halo Wars 2, but I don't really feel like this year has that much on the horizon." Confused Johnny only has a couple on his most anticipated list as well, though they're the somewhat less conventional Friday the 13th and Farming Simulator 2017 (?!).
Personally, I'm quite excited for Crackdown 3, and luckily Sam, Timmeh and MrkDhn were a bit more enthusiastic about the games (and hardware) to come.
Over in The Procrastination Page, Hetty showed off her and her sister's matching tattoos that further escalate her rabid Harry Potter fandom.
She also gave her verdict on gaming themed loot boxes.
Sometimes the stuff is amazing and other times it looks like tat you can pick up in Poundland. Also, Paul now has a wardrobe filled with more t shirts than any one person could ever feasibly wear."
MrkDhn10 shared some good news with us: "Small world - have been invited to an interview on Monday at the same bank which ended my contract end of April! Totally different department but somewhat uncanny."
We wish you the best of luck, make sure to pop in and tell us how it went!
I'll leave you all with this classic from Tony Hawk's Underground.
