Killed by what I can only describe as a tormented soul that was freed from a magical battery.

FTL: we will take your engineer so you lose dodge points from his expertise!

Me: so what you gave me another guy who can do engineering earlier Iíll just use him.

FTL: have an event that reduces your engines to one point of power, then. Oh and an enemy ship that has three layers of shields and three weapons.

Me:

Had big guns, and put the remainder of my upgrades into the engine, so had one layer of shields, which didnít even matter since I was getting missiles shot up my bum which bypasses shields anyway. This game is very fickle sometimes. Itíll give you enemies that you can wipe the floor with immediately followed up by an enemy who wipes the floor with you, and the very occasional but oddly amusing enemy that canít shoot through your shields but you canít shoot through theirs either.

Murder by Numbers: I got incredibly stuck on a puzzle that seems to require wild jumps in logic.

There is a Sudoku-like grid, and the numbers around the sides tell you how many consecutive blocks are in that row/column. Sometimes, it will tell you something like 3 4, which means there is a section of 3 blocks followed by one of 4 (left to right or up to down), with at least 1 space between them (because otherwise it'd be a 7). I need to put a block every box that is supposed to have a block in it, and can optionally mark every box that *cannot* have one with an X (usually after a section that has one, or when a row/column is finished).

Ah, Picross. Lemme just take a look real quick...

Quote
That column has a 2 and 1, but there is enough space for it to be the 2 with a 1 below it, or to be the 1 with a 2 somewhere above it.

Think about this a bit more. While both of these statements are true, there is something you have failed to conclude from these two statements that lets you take the next step.

EDIT: I solved it, by the way, if you want any more help.

For what it's worth, there's nonogram solvers online, and some of the basic maneuvers are on the wikipedia page.

Past a relatively simple point, those things give me a headache. I can do pretty intense sudoku but nonograms are just, like... no, no, I'm just going to not :-\

I'm not going to look at Aois full answer since I'm also playing the game. But for just the next few steps:

I got especially beat after messing with sentinels. Retreated with my exosuit shield down and only one hit point left. Managed to lose the sentinel force, but didn't see the hazardous plant directly infront of me. Died to a frickin' venus flytrap.

Died many times to the final boss in Tunic.  I don't think I have the skill to beat it using a keyboard, so I resorted to cheesing the boss with the lure item, which took it from impossible to an outright joke.

Finished the game and I still love it and its concepts overall, but man are the boss fights just way too hard for no real reason.  The game has a "no fail" mode if you can't handle the combat, but I just wanted a more reasonable challenge...

Sometimes you just get a game where everything goes wrong.

In twenty years I passed a single law because of pure bad luck on the rolls, China beelined towards the techs needed to stall me, I was constantly warring, often with multiple wars at the same time because I was trying to keep my rivals in check, and my allies were repeatedly crushed by their enemies despite my help.

Russia's not having a good time, I'm gonna restart.

Victoria 3

EDIT: New game, everything's gone a lot better.

I decided to fuck with Austria, because they're being dicks for no real reason. Should have been an easy win but the game had other ideas.

Every godddamn time I'd get somewhere with a front, all my guys would just... go home. Like they went "Right! Won a battle, job's a gun 'un" so unsurprisingly I couldn't actually make any gains since I'd have to send them all back to the front and by the time they were back there Austria had made up all their lost ground.

Got my ass utterly handed to me by my own greed; my options lost 95% overnight after being up a good 40% the prior day

I plonked my head directly on top of my Go Plus+ while trying to fall back asleep, thus hitting the button and causing it to end my sleep session at 4:30 in the morning after only a few hours of sleep. This annoyed me enough that it took me over an hour to fall asleep again.

Its been a long time, boot up TF2

Die to a sniper

Die to a spy

Die to random crit

repeat this like 16 times, basically never die to anything 'conventional'

Oh right, that's why I haven't played TF2 in years.

My team got mobbed and killed by an unending swarm of aliens.

Otherwise I've found the game very fun and worth the price.  Arguably the best part is watching people's facial animations though.

into a guardroom in Hyrule Castle. They disappeared, and an enemy group health bar appeared. All I saw were two Ice Keese. Then I get hit in the back of the head by a Silver Moblin.

Dick move, Moblin.


Prior to this, I discovered by accident my first colosseum in the Depths.

It was the Lynel one.
