  1. DOTA 2

    I was watching a game tonight with a really good morphling who got a bunch of free farming, and by the end of the game he had used his adaptive abilities to give himself 1 strength and 127 agility. At lvl 19 he only had 950HP, but he blocked 61% of physical damage with his 37 armor ha. It was cool to watch, I might have to try to emulate that
  2. DOTA 2

    Yes sir, that was a great game indeed, I swear im not normally that useless. New hero added tonight!
  3. Giant Bomb Joins GameSpot

    According to the giant bomb crew, they are joining CBSi, not gamespot, they are still going to a seperate staff technically.
  4. DOTA 2

    I've played about 30 games in two weeks of having the beta. I'm officially hooked. What I'm working on now is knowing the right time to leave the lane for a gank, when to go in for a last hit without leaving myself vulnerable.
  5. Great to have Nick back for a good ol fashioned pod blast! Also, Congrats Nick. Phaedrus
  6. DOTA 2

    my best hero so far is axe, played him 3 times and won all 3 games. I love having a hero that can take so many hits with his massive armor bonuses, high HP. His lack of speed and range is fixed with a nice blink dagger to rage combo
  7. DOTA 2

    Finally making that step from n00b learning the basics of the game, to really kicking ass with abilities and item combinations. Just had my best game as Axe, using blink dagger to jump in the middle of two enemy heroes in a team fight, draw their attacks which my boosted armor ability, so the whole team wipes the floor with them One question. Sometimes when I try to buy an advanced item from the secret shop, it doesn't buy right away? Puts a few items in my stash, sometimes the recipe for it as well? Is this telling me I don't have enough inventory slots for the item, or that I need to go back to the main base to retrieve the recipe before the item will be completed? I think I did that accidently once and it worked, I just want to get some clarification on this system

    It would be a lawless wasteland on those forums! Cats and dogs living together! Mass Hysteria!

    That's my question as well. I love Idle thumbs, and everything they produce and represent about gaming, but how can they possibly spend that much money responsibly? What do the fans get out of that?
  10. DOTA 2

    Finally got a beta key and had a chance to play, 3 online games and 2 with bots. I did terrible and lost all but one, but after reading a lot of guides online I'm finally getting the hang of things. How best to farm creeps early game, how to survive a gank attempt, how best to use items for specific characters. My last game was epic, we had the "score" lead the whole time, but they had one hero who outleveled all of us and was a big pain, we finally pushed into their base after taking down three of them at once, but we had to fall back and their leveled up creeps were too much for us to handle with our towers gone late game. It could have gone either way and it really sold me on the game.
  11. haha I tottally forgot about the foolishness that is the battleship movie. That's definitely something the thumbs crew would have though up

    Just donated my meager 10 dollars to do my part, and get access to that sweet pre release podcast

    This is the greatest idea ever. I'm poor as dirt right now but I'm going to find a way to donate 20 or 30 to the cause
  14. Dark Souls(Demon's Souls successor)

    I think it would have been better if resistance really made a difference not just to your overall damage intake, but how much you could resist of lightning, poison, magic, all those damage modifiers that are tough to fight against sometimes in PVP and in PvE. Especially considering most of the shields barely protect against lightning damage or curse
  15. DOTA 2

    I tried Hero Attack, the current popular one. Yea it's got some rough edges for sure. But for someone like me who is new to the genre, its fun enough. I'm sure it doesn't compare to LOL or the other ones though
  16. Gifts - Stuff for Free

    Do you still have one of those codes for the monday night combat beta? I'm slowly getting into these DOTA type games and would appreciate it. Thanks if you can!
  17. DOTA 2

    I finally got around to playing a couple of games of the Lords Management mod on SC2(been playing warcraft and starcract for years and never got into DOTA, and I had so much fun I did the hardware survey and opted in for the DOTA2 beta. Hopefully I can get in soon
  18. General Video Game Deals Thread

    I have the steam version of Anomoly Warzone earth, and I can't say it's a freakin blast. Definitely worth picking up the humble bundle for that alone
  19. Obligatory comical YouTube thread

    That guy has a really good singing voice and you could tell he made that girls day haha. You could just hear her and her friends laughing
  20. Dark Souls(Demon's Souls successor)

    PvP is still pretty worthless because of the hit detection and reliance on animations. I can't tell you how many times I've been backstabbed when the guy was cleary at my front or side
  21. Resident Evil 6: President Evil

    Did my ears deceive me? Is that third main character voiced by the amazing Nolan North?
  22. Dark Souls(Demon's Souls successor)

    I've been playing my second character over the last week after I got hooked again. Going for a super strength, heavy armor/weapons user. Saved up a whopping 58 strength so I could forge Smough's Hammer, one of the unique boss weapons, but I've also got a ton of heavy axes and fist weapons that scale with strength, with the best upgraded heavy armor that you need high strength to use. Fun way to play. Bosses and enemies that use to crush my previous, jack of all trades character, tire themselves out against my heavy armor, only to get their face smashed in with a giant axe haha.
  23. Fuck Steve, grats Steve 3.

    Famous might just be TOO famous now to team back up and start the podcast again
  24. Fuck Steve, grats Steve 3.

    Wait, so Chris and Steve are in SF, and nick is in portland? I think I'm getting all of this mixed up. I doubt we have much of a chance for a thumbs reunion of at least three of them aren't in the same city
  25. Fuck Steve, grats Steve 3.

    lol I love the nickname minerva scoops. Did he say who he's going to be working for now?
