    Berzerk is very cheaply made and starts very corny, but you get attached after a while

    then all of a sudden everything is terrible :(

    There's some sick shit along the way here and there too, though. Like Guts' past, some of the crazy gore, few other bits.

    But yeah that certain part is a bit... Welp.

    by the time I saw banshees my snipin did so much damage they dropped in three hits, which incidentally is how many bullets per round I had in my black widow v!

    but that reminds me I did have problems with the
    reaper fight during the geth stuff where you had to laser target the reaper. Apparently zooming in made it go slower which made the last targeting impossible and when you die you have to start over and ugh that sure was tedious for no reason

    yeah you have to stand still for it to target with any kind of speed.

    I discovered that by accident.

    yeah me too

    after dying four times and feeling like the moment was totally lost!

    Yes that was horrid.

    On harder difficulties the other laser targeted you faster too.

    I watched Vivienne do it and thought, that's just unfair.

    Turns out this was incredibly helpful as I just happened to do this part.

    Not a good segment, though.

    yeah that is apparently nothing to do with the difficulty and everything to do with whether or not you are standing still

    if you are strafing while targeting or moving at all it slows the lock

    if you stand still it locks on SO QUICK

    at one point I got it to lock after it lasered only once, just cuz I was standing still and the crosshairs were bang on

    Yeah I died like 6 times there. Ruined the hell out of that moment. It was less "I AM A FUCKING BADASS I KILL REAPERS FOR FUN" and felt more like I was cheating with my time-travel quicksave

    2:25 onward, Tali drunk dials Prothy the Prothean (Jarvik) and implies that he's tsundere. I didn't see that part in my game. Tali confirmed for watching Japanese cartoons.

    Where abouts have you gotten in the series? Over the pacing isn't bad though the creator is known to make pretty long breaks between issues.

    For anyone following along at home, my Nanna was released from hospital today and is expected to make full recovery. If only because they have no idea what it was that was bleeding, and whatever it was, it seemed to stop on its own after a couple days.

    Hooray medical science?

    Great news! Hopefully she recovers fully and the issue does rear its head again.

    Today my Dad sent me photos of my Pop who just had a bionic knee put in. Hopefully it'll keep him going for a good while longer. He's 86 and generally in pretty good health.

    I finished the series (it's 25 episodes right?)

    I might try my luck on ebay or something to pick up a few issues and see if it catches

    I beat the hivemind in Dead Space, finally.

    After another 10 or so goes after I figured out exactly how many hits it takes to kill each little yellow testicle weakspot, shooting two of them until they only have one shot left, and then destroying the rest to try and make the upside-down back to front bit easier on my self AND YET STILL DYING, I just gave up and went hell-for-leather mental. Used up all my ammo just wildly shooting in any fucking direction ever.

    Killed it first try.

    I did this exact same thing. Fucking aiming controls while you're being held sort-of upside-down and waving all over the place... Fuck off.

    Upside down is no problem. Waving me around is no problem. But combine the two, and also revert my controls from inverted to 'standard' when you do it, and nope, that's bullshit.

    @Fish: Good news!

    You are the second Australian I've heard from who got one today or the other day.
    Also the first Australians I've heard who actually got an invite sent to them, rather than getting one of the "Bring two friends along!" passes.
    Hopefully they're putting servers up here soon?

    I can get 100 by 20 still, but I have to be basically doing nothing but farming and I tend to play support and move around a lot in the early game.
    It doesn't behave as well as HoN at the same ping. I still prefer the game though.
    But having ping makes everything worse, the few times I could get ever on the Aussie servers in HoN (A whole whopping 20 of them for the disproportionately large Australian community in the genre) I felt like I was cheating everything was so easy.

    Yeah, PS3. As far as an end-of-game bossfight, it was basically a cake walk on Normal, except for the last two testicles. The other blobs in the chest cavity took me about 3 seconds after I scurried around and picked up some more ammo.

    Yeah playing LoL with sub 50 ping would be so incredible. I'd never miss a skillshot again.
