Potentially off-topic: missing person

Hi all, I realise I've not posted here for many a year (time-based reasons mostly: still a massive fan of the crew's stuff), and I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. A guy I know from university (here in the UK) has gone missing while hiking in Vancouver. I know only one person in Vanc...

Re: Magic: The Gathering: Whatcha mean, there's no thread ye

@Volafortis: Thanks for the very detailed advice. They all sound like very cool additions to the deck, and I would be very keen to add a planeswalker at some point, although I'm not sure which actually fit properly. However, I probably wasn't clear enough in my post as to what I'm looking to do with...

Re: Magic: The Gathering: Whatcha mean, there's no thread ye

The guys at LRR have revitalized a long dormant interest in Magic for me (long story short, I played it for like two months way back during the Invasion cycle). I've got Duels of the Planeswalker 2012 on my PS3 and I was wondering if anyone's tried out the DLC for it. If so, was it worth it? I have...

Re: Mass Effect Movie Announced!

What I would find interesting, though, is not a direct adaptation, but something more akin to a prequel or a tandem story that does not feature Shepard directly. Not likely to be done, but I think it would be far better. Of course it'll never happen. That would require Hollywood screen writers to h...

Re: ...What.

You can be banned from the Escapist and your account deleted. There's a big freaking problem there if you just paid $20 for a subscription. Especially with how some of the mods over there can get. And with that we have the potential worry of people avoiding permabans because of their subscriptions,...

Re: Portal 2

I'd personally say that this is far more likely to be episode 3 rather than portal 2, unless of course they just combine the two. The fact that Kleiner, Alyx and Barney can (apparently) be heard talking in the background of one of the audio clips seals it for me. That, plus the fact that Valve would...

Re: Dragon Age: Origins

The one proble I've found is that there is a lack of health potions. The shops don't seem to restock and there are currently 0 available in Ferelden! Which is a pain as I'm on the final part. The crafting materials to make lesser health poultices can be bought very cheaply from varathorn (for the e...

Re: Doctor Who End of Time Part 2

I'd have to agree with Katie in preferring Ecclestone. I felt that his portrayal of the Doctor had a lot more depth to it: Tennant became far too two dimensional as a character, and to be honest, I'm very glad to see him go and I hope that Doctor Who can develop further as a show, as I was very disa...

Vanguard for me: it took a while to level up enough to get the class to work, but when it worked the combination of the shotgun and the biotic powers was brilliant to use. Good to know, I just started as a vanguard. Just be warned that for the first 10-15 levels you're playing as either a biotic wi...
