appiah4 wrote on Yesterday, 18:26: Try Ultima V I would say. If you dont like it the series is not for you.. Not necessarily. I was a big fan of II, III, IV, and VII but for whatever reason could not get into V or VI. I do agree that reviewers probably praised V and VI the most, though.

How would people describe the unique appeals of the Ultima games? Because I could never get into them as a youngster in the 80s/90s. Despite playing tons of other role playing games and loving fantasy novels, etc. I just felt like a complete bored, clueless idiot in any Ultima game I tried. I would …

I've got all the old Ultimas installed on my DOS PC with "Ultima: The Reconstruction" mods. I do love the enhanced music. It sounds nearly as good playing through OPL as General MIDI. And the speed fixes are awesome - no need to mess with setmul and underclocking. Of course, I'm not sure when I'll …

On this topic, I have noticed there are two distinct types of people. The first being those who see the rules or framework of a game as being fluid and changeable upon the whim of the player, with the overriding motivation being " provided it's fun, I'm happy! ". The second being those who adhere …

Just because a lot of players suck and games and/or like to save scum doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the save system. KDC's system is a good way to mitigate save scumming. A much bigger problem in role playing games than that you can't save any time anywhere early game (after a couple of …

On a horse, it just swivels your head around. You can only move the horse with WASD. I use a mod to stop that annoying head swivel - easy to install from memory. I also use a mod to fix the save system, which I objected to. You know, if they just set up a double-tap of W to gallop, that seems like …

It took me about 10 hours to get to this point... Yikes! I was expecting the intro to be a few hours long, 10 hours is a bit much for me. I'll put it on the backburner for now, to revisit during a slow work period. To be fair, maybe it was somewhere between 5-10 hrs. I'm a pretty slow and …

Kingdom Come Deliverance I'm a little over 12 hours in and I feel like I'm just at the beginning still... Thanks for posting your impressions. I'll have to give this another shot. I love the focus on historical realism, but the on-rails intro really soured me on it. I've heard that it opens up a …

Kingdom Come Deliverance I'm a little over 12 hours in and I feel like I'm just at the beginning still. Overall, I'm really enjoying this title. The attention to detail and realism is really blowing me a way in a good way. I'm in the main quest "The Prey" where you are forced to go hunting with …

Re: How many working computers do you have right now?

6 machines that are "mine" are set up and either already running or ready to go with a flip of the switch. Plus my wife and son each have a computer, plus one ipad and a phone for each of us. I have several more that won't take much to get up and running (mainly get out of storage and connect a …

The rest of the game is proper open world that you play at your own pace, and the combat is likewise slow-ish and strategic. I guess they were trying to engage the player in the story early with that on-rails opening act but that horse bit was hard and frustrating I agree - just keep playing a …

Kingdom Come Deliverance I started this game last night and have just completed the "Run!" mission. Man, that was tough. Took several tries. You have to double-tap the LSHIFT key for the horse to gallop at full speed, AND steer with A and D AND look around with the mouse. I ended up just centering …

After having heard of the RTW remaster, I finally ended up using one of my original RTW keys to get a Steam version for free so I can get the 50% off for the remastered edition, if I want to go get it. And I ended up playing RTW for the first time in a year or so. Rome: Total War? That's what came …

Re: List of PC games that you have beaten

Doom 3 BFG This actually turned out to be a pretty decent game! Took me almost 21 hours to finish over the course of 26 days. I rate it 80/100, which is actually on the lower end of all the FPS games I've completed. I have a skewed rating system: If it's barely good enough for me to bother …

I've just upgraded my GTX 1060 to an RTX 3060 and I'm currently playing Wolfenstein II Colossus and Doom (2016). Needless to say they run very well at 1080P with everything set to max ! Nice! Talk about ultimate 1080p GPU. What processor and how much RAM? You should be getting close to doubled …

So I finally beat Doom 3! All in all, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. It got off to a slow start, but wowed me to this day with it's lighting model and level design. Once the action got underway in Alpha Labs I was having a good time, even if the jump scares were hard on my midlife …

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! I rage quit Duke3D on the final boss of Episode 1. It actually …
