Dragon Age Inquisition + All DLC is £3.99 in a PS4 digital sale
Bah. I will never ever play this but when I checked and saw how much of a discount that is I couldn't stop myself from buying it.

It's good but, like many games, needs a significant time commitment that I struggle with.

I'm tempted to get it just to get the DLC, though. I've only got halfway through the vanilla version.

I loved this game.

Gotta say that wasn't very enigmatic, Dr X.

I was going for offensive.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is £5.99

Both are excellent RPGs and a lot of fun. Don't be put off by bad press over Andromeda. It suffered for not being a direct sequel to ME4, but it is a tops fund game with shooty guns and RPG questing. I preferred Inquisition as it has some more rounded characters to play with, mind.

Only 48 myself. But in my defence, I had a few years where they thought I couldn't because of a malaria risk.

Everybody who can, should, as often as possible.

And "Oooh but I'm squeamish about needles" does not constitute "can't".

I just look away and tell the nurse I don't want to talk

This is the third or fourth time they've been left - literally - hanging about.

Don't know if it's that many times. At the end of Dominion, Death, Fire & Mortis were still on the planet having killed nearly all the inhabitants, which led directly into the start of The Torture Garden. The end of Torture Garden (yes, involves some space floating!), does set up the next epic, however...

I think the Doc's also referring to the end of Dark Justice and Anderson's debut solo adventure, when Cliff Robinson and TB Grover cast 2many4Js into the endless limbo between dimensions 'forever', which turned out to be an overly optimistic assessment of the situation.



It's just a symptom of the existential threat posed by the nature of the characters; creators have to find some reason why they don't just come back five minutes later and start killing everyone all over again.

Yup:

Cast into space at the end of the Anderson one (before Necropolis)

Then Death was cast into hell

Then cast into space

Then cast into space again.

The art was tops though, Nick!

I felt the end of Dominion was a bit of a cop-out. Aren't all the Dark Judges now floating about (some on the planet, Death in space)?

Again.

This is the third or fourth time they've been left - literally - hanging about.

There's a giant Nintendo eShop sale going on right now if anyone is interested - loads of bargains to be had.

Jesus, that's a great sale.

Picked up Hollow Knight, Crypt of the NecroDancer and Layers of Fear for €20.

Necrodancer is fun

What do you call an Italian with a rubber toe?

Rubber-toe.

What do you call a Frenchman in sandals?

It is with some grumpiness that I must report I still don't have my prog.

I am typically getting my sub on a Friday, six days after everyone else.

This pisses me off.

Thanks all for the replies. Are 2000AD not that sort after then after 100? What is the reason for this? American comics go like mad it seems.

Everyone recognises Batman, Superman and Spiderman. No one recognises Ant Wars or Nemesis.

'tis the quirk of an anthology.

You could hold on to them and join the inevitable selling bandwagon when the Rogue Trooper movie is released.
