Armstrong's yellow charge is one of the only attacks that you really, really need to use the dodge move for. I know this because I managed to avoid learning how to dodge until the final boss in the main game and he beat my ass until I figured it out. :V

I finally start to feel like I'm ready to rescue Nick Valentine, so I start exploring the area around Diamond City.

About 10 steps to the east, there's a bunch of doggos that have at least 300 hp (a bottlecap mine wouldn't even kill a wounded one.) I get past those on the third try by kiting them into Diamond City security.

A few steps beyond that, a Super Mutant Brute blows my arm off in one shot.

In the opposite direction, some Children of Atom do... something and I explode into pieces. I don't think they had a mininuke, but maybe they did.

I'm starting to think I might not be high enough level for this yet.

Found a fortress an easy distance from my portal, and even better is one of the first rooms I find has a Blaze spawner. This is great because during my last attempts, Blazes were damn hard to find for some reason. And this was before potion-making required Blaze powder.

Whilst dealing with two that popped out of the spawner, I start taking hits from behind. Apparently another Blaze spawned normally right outside the room. I managed to kill the two that I was fighting, but as I was running from the third, the game starts rubber-banding and I take massive damage as well as being set on fire from across the room despite the Blaze just sitting there. The killing blow lands as I'm halfway down the hallway to the exit, and I find my stuff back in the spawner room.

In this particular case, it's probably caused by a desync between the server and client programs, which causes the game to revert back a few fractions of a second. Even though I play singleplayer, it happens all the time. Usually when I'm mining a few blocks(especially very quickly with a good pickaxe); the last block or two to break suddenly reappears as if it were not mined. Once I thought I had a boat disappear because it did this right when I put it on the water, except it ended back up in my hotbar(the icon wasn't there, hence why I thought it was gone).

There's a Super Mutant Behemoth that makes its home smack in the middle between Graygarden and Sunshine Tidings. While consolidating my ammo stashes into a central location, I decided to take it out. There's a ruined bus nearby I can use for shelter while I plink away at it.

It turns out, the Behemoth's melee attack doesn't care about the bus.

If it'd the one I'm thinking of, there are also cliffs above the creature that you can shoot it from.

Lost the battle because I spent most of the time in an APC. The main cannon on it is... massively underwhelming. Decent fire rate, but only 12 shots and a long reload, plus piss-poor damage. I scored a headshot and they didn't die, let alone multiple chest shots. Normal expectation is, if you get shot in the chest with a 30mm high-explosive round, the question is not whether you survive, the question is if they can identify your remains afterwards.

And when I was outside of an APC, it seemed every single enemy was wielding a sniper rifle and targeting me specifically. Or wielding a shotgun that was accurate and effective out to sniper rifle range and targeting me specifically.

not exactly death but still. im currently playing a new character in EVE Online and was travelling to a trade hub to pick up some attribute implants i bought for faster training. turns out two of the systems in the route were part of an Invasion event and the first one just had an NPC camp on the first gate of the system i entered, by the time i pushed the warp button i was already receiving a Killmail for my Corvette.

these triangles have no chill  :P

A pig killed me while I was shoving fistfuls of blueberries into my face hole and dicking around in menus.

Tried Rimworld with Hardcore SK again. Exiled start, second day, randomly ordered my only colonist to kill and eat a squirell. He almost immediately gets food poisoning and gets downed. Let's look at his health. Maxed higyene need - +20% to food poisoning chance. Guy's dead. Not because he has eaten a full fucken squerell raw and got himself rabies or something, but because he didn't washed his hands. I don't know to where these 20% go, but i disable this pretentious bullshit (along with literal shit) until better times. Too bad that making food poisoning be how it was in previous versions is a bit harder. Also, inbuilt spyware, ho!

This week's Arkham Horror LCG mission involved a lot of locations that did small amounts of damage when you go looking for clues (which is the only way to advance). 2 of us died because of this and making some choices that turned out to be bad. We play blind, so we're learning that the Forgotten Age campaign is tougher, we have 4 players (1-4, 3 is the sweet spot) without having enough clue-gathering ability to fully justify it, and 2 of our character have imbalanced stats that keep getting used (this is good, the game should punish you for having dump stats, but it also shouldn't make those characters specifically for the campaign that punishes it).

I had a nice big engine, two good guns, two sets of bronzewood shielding. I decided to visit the blue kingdom, I was probably well equipped for it, I thought.

Turns out it's got these great, fat, tanky-as-f__k, fast-as-h__l sentient burning correspondence enemies that shoot homing, high damage, exploding shotgun-esque fireballs. The only reprieve is that they're slow moving, but they move faster than your engine does. But that's not what got me. That's what got me to 6hp.

What got me was a bull cantankeri coming out of b____y nowhere to splatter me.

Okay, this got me wondering: where is the list of forum rules? I'm used to it being stickied at the top of the forum main page. Nevermind, just much further down than I expected. Apparently shitposting, swearing, mental illness, and drug use are within the rules as long as they aren't offensive.

I'm censoring the words because in the Fallen London universe, they're always censored like that. Including such profanities as d__n.

No judgement. I was just wondering if I was crossing a line.

I've ragequit Arma 3 Antistasi twice because the civilian AI ran me over after veering off course straight for me. First one also reversed through a wall to kill me while the second one got 6 rounds into it's face for charging at me, was too close for me to get away though.
