  • Re: John Wick 2!

    Prequel story would be fantastic.

    That's not how you spell Cordelia

    Shitposting aside I was a big fan of both the Phoenix Wright games and the Professor Layton games. They're less action and more courtroom drama/puzzle game respectively but they're very enjoyable.

  • Re: Battlefield 1

    I don't know if I can describe this in any way and give it justice but I think we just had our best Battlefield game ever bar none.

    Edward Squad on Iron Hills (Italian Operations) with @RyanFodder running assault and clutch demolitions, @TiberiusLazarus our mortar man/main support gunner, @UPSLynx sniper extraordinaire and myself, an erratic medic.

    First map, Mont Grappe we coordinated the hell out of the entire push, only failing the initial assault as we reached the fortress.

    The second map is where things got absolutely crazy, we stalled out after only the second Sector but with the last assault the entire team managed to force our way up a mountain and back down the other side into an Austrian Coastal fortification. As the match was coming to a close you could practically feel the tension as we made it through two whole sectors with a mere 16 reinforcement tickets remaining.

    Our confidence renewed after the disappointing second wave we soldiered on, the assault petering out all around us with little hope of victory. Something amazing occurred as we hit our last 5 tickets that I'd never seen before in these games. In most of my experience other players are quick to revive costing the team tickets in the attempt to get back in the action but something, some team-wide determination perhaps, found every single player waiting for medic revives and with a coordinated final strike on the fort we managed to take the final two points with a mere 1 ticket remaining.

    It was the closest, most intense match I've ever experienced and seeing our squad make the ranks as the top scoring unit (With yours truly as squad leader topping the leaderboards) made it that much sweeter.

  • Re: The Icrontic Gun Thread

    I'm a fan of the jungle as well but my grandfather used the No. 4 Mk1 during WW2 so the rifle has some sentimental value, alongside of course being a bloody excellent firearm.

    EDIT: So the specific version I'm looking for is the Ontario Longbranch manufactured Lee Enfield (Original Markings) These are generally pretty hard to come by but the Canadian Rangers are phasing out the rifle this year so hopefully a few hundred will enter the milsurp market.

  • Re: The Icrontic Gun Thread

    After some cursory investigation the other day I've learned that, not only is the Lee Enfield Rifle a non-restricted firearm in Canada but there's a large number of them still on the market, some from milsurp.

    I've decided that the Lee Enfield No.4 will be the first firearm in my collection once I've started my career.
