    I was referring to a Ranger Archer ... five shots per round and 20-30 damage per shot toward the end.

    Currently I am playing a game that is still in Steam Early Access. Folk Tale. It is a village builder and is quite playable although still in development. Currently they are focusing on the Campaign. it has been in Early access for quite sometime but is moving steady forward. The developer is Games Foundry a small independent company.

    Doom (2k16). It's actually really, really damn good. It's almost good enough to make me forget the entire MMS FPS era ever happened... :lol:
    Can't comment on the multiplayer, though.

    Also: BG:EE. Because. :p

    I was wondering about that, since i saw you uploading a bunch of screenshots over the last few days :D

    I've been playing Dragon Age : Origins, i'm currently done with the main campaign, and platying through the awakening expansion.
    once that is finished, i;ll be doing the golems of angarrak and witch hunt expansions as well (i romanced Morrigan in the main campaign just for the sake of playing witch hunt later on)

    Once i'm finished with that i'll be exporting my save to Dragon Age 2, playing through that and it's expansions and then moving on to Dragon Age : Inquisition.
    So i'm guessing i'll be busy for at least a good month playing through all three games :)

    I've heard good things about the new Doom, sounds like one of those fps games that I'd really enjoy.

    It's an excellent game. If you enjoy these kinds of shooters (high-octane, fast-paced, and light on story), it's definitely for you. Turn off your brain and RIP AND TEAR. :shake:

    I liked the original Dooms, and Painkiller is one of my favourite games of all time, so yes, I do like the action type of shooter without too much distraction of the story. It looks like the movement speed is pretty high as well, that is always a big bonus (nothing more fun than bunnyhopping through a level in Painkiller).

    I can confirm that bunny hopping is definitely supported, nay, encouraged. :grin:

    That's great :shake:

    In Painkiller it's actually required for some of the secrets. Also, it's probably much harder to survive if you don't, herding great hordes of enemies is a staple in Painkiller ;)

    The main game I am playing at the moment is Ingress as it combines teamwork, competition, and running around the place.

    Hi Harbs! :hello:

    Speaking of teamwork, I picked up Overwatch yesterday & have been having a blast. Lucio ball is great fun - I'm gonna miss it when it's gone. :aww:

    It's helped I was lucky enough to bump into a team of friendly Scandinavians who were short a support. Does anyone here play?

    Soloing a cleric/thief half-orc through BG1&2. Currently in BG2, and I'm reminded why I always prefer to mix fighter levels into cleric or thief builds. Sometimes, she just can't hit the broad side of a barn. The one attack per round is also quite limiting, even though I do backstab everything most of the time.

    In the last few weeks, I've done a 100% run of DX:HR-DC, Shadow of Mordor, and I'm now going through Wasteland 2: Director's Cut.

    After doing a number of runs of classic Baldurs Gate and owning the EE for I can't tell anyone how long, I'm doing my run-through of the BG series with the EE.

    Probably shorter than some of my party / solo runs through BG trilogy, I'll wager :) Definitely shorter than most of my M2:TW games.

    I don't know what the achievements are, but is it manageable? No retarded requirements?
