Spain for sure. Loved doing holy wars in Civ V and this looks like something Firaxis have expanded on really well.

I could have been on the London Underground at the same time as Hideo Kojima.

That's probably as much celeb excitement as I'm ever going to get.

I confess to only watching a few minutes near the end, but hearing 'there are no more radio towers, you just have to explore the map to unfog it' was reassuring.Reply

If it makes you feel any better, I played Half-Life for the first time recently and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I recently had to return my Cloud 1s because they wouldn't fit my head (blame the luxuriously sized forehead). Are the Cloud 2s noticeably bigger? If not, any suggestions as to <£50 headphones that might do?Reply
Phil Iwaniuk Avatar

Unfortunately for you, the Cloud IIs are exactly the same size so if the older model wasn't comfortable, you'll have exactly the same problem with these. I have the opposite problem - small head - so can't advise from first-hand experience what would be more comfortable to you. Sounds like it'll be worth trying on a few headsets in person, if you're able to.

I have to disagree with Paletress being 'far and away the best Priest legendary'. She essentially requires 9 mana to activate, and the risk of getting, say, Acidmaw and losing the game is just too dangerous.

She's definitely not terrible, and is extremely fun, but she's almost always outclassed by Vol'jin in terms of Priest legendaries.Reply
Ben Barrett Avatar

I'm always so disappointed with Vol'jin. I don't feel like I'll win the game when I cast him, just make a 6/some and maybe get a nice trade into an enemy's big guy. I'd say he's probably better in more circumstances, but less likely to win you the game. Neither exactly light me on fire, but Paletress seems far more necessary for a good priest control deck than Vol'jin, to me.


Probably unfair on VJ to call her "far and away" the best tho, yeah.

Calling half the combat in your game 'unremarkable' doesn't seem like a great sell.
