Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I hope this isn't how the bulk of the game plays out. I prefer my RPGs to be more mentally played. I don't enjoy real-time RPGs that require amazing hand-eye coordination. The graphics and story so far are brilliant, I just hope it doesn't require too much twitch to play successfully. This is why I …

Re: What were your defining moments in computer history?

in Milliways
Gosh your backstory sounds awfully familiar! My father was an early CAD adopter so I was lucky to have PCs around starting with 8 bits, and then things got really interesting when the 486 appeared, and then things got red hot obsession when he bought the rest of the family (but mainly me) a 486 of …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I was doing some "testing" on my P4 rig last night after a PSU install and fired up F.E.A.R - such a great game and it occurred to me that it was my DOOM3 substitute back in the day. Yes it has the horror stuff which provided some good jump scares but more than that the game-play was very DOOM (1 …

Re: What are you eating/drinking? (the vogons food thread)

Just the average 6,2 feet and somewere around 143 pounds in weight. Yes that's not heavy for a tall guy - I hover around 165 pounds (75kg) and am 6" tall, and if I don't get enough exercise then I'll gain weight pretty quickly. You're lucky in some ways - losing weight is hard - but quality meat …

I must admit that I never finished DOOM3 - I got to the final boss fight and just couldn't be bothered. It was fun up until that point so why ruin it with boss frustration? I did the same thing with HL1, life was too short for Xen!

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

Well it'll always be there for you - that's one thing I really like about retro computing. I was watching an old dude in a fancy, much loved soft-top MGA (tiny old British sports car) weave his way through the CBD the other day and it looked awful - the roads are super busy these days and cars are …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Nice one @clueless, I really like the aesthetic of that game. I can feel an RPG coming on here too but for now I've been having a great time trying out some DOS based SMS emulators on my socket 7 machine, and I'm surprised with how well they run (after countless hours of messing about). There are a …

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

I have to say that after four years of active hoarding and trying my hand at building anything from a 386 to an LGA775 I feel like the thrill has worn off considerably. I'm with ya, I have more awesome hardware in the shed doing nothing than I care to admit and it's bring me down. On the other hand …
