Re: What game are you playing now?

Cheers, it's good to hear a candid overview of the situation from someone who was there, and still is. Myself, I played a lot up until about 1995, then (for various reasons, none good) simply stopped using computers until the new millennium. After which, I've dabbled with CRPG's but never fully …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Slowly getting into the rhythm of Pool Of Radiance (1986). It's been over 20 years since I played a Gold Box game, and even then I started with the Krynn series where you at least could auto-heal/memorize during rest. Having to constantly manually heal/memorize each time was turning me off, but I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Work has been busy since the end of 2020, but I've been plugging away at... Stranger of Sword City I had played this for something like 10-15 hours a year or two ago, and then stopped for some reason. During this initial attempt, I had created multiple parties to fill up the roster, so that I could …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Stranger of Sword City (WIN) What a dumb name for a game! This is one I've had in my library for some time, and I had even got around 10 hours into it, but got sidetracked with other games. After completing Stygian (and playing some console games) I was in the mood for a "blobber" so I restarted …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I completed Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones just now. Overall, I liked it! It took just under 15 hours to complete, and I am fine with that. Not every RPG has to be a 60-hour epic. Although the world sometimes feels like a Lovecraft theme park (some of the quests are taken 100% from individual …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

It took me many, many tries to get into Planescape Torment. Even so, it's not really what I look for in an RPG at all (combat, exploration, character development [i.e. character abilities and skills]). I really don't care about the characters, but the thing that finally hooked me was exploring the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Wasn't much in the mood to do anything that requires reading or thinking, so played... Dungeon Siege It was sitting in my Steam library and I had barely ever played it, so decided to give it a go. I'm really not sure what to think yet, a few hours in. It's interesting that you have an entire party …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

1. Maniac Mansion is a much better game than its sequel, Day of the Tentacle . It's more fun to play than Day of the Tentacle but it's really hard. Agree 100%. Other than graphics and sound, it seemed like a step back to me from MM back in the day. I also much prefer the corny horror setting of MM …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

I'll still watch a new 8-Bit Guy video when it pops up, but he definitely seems to be rushing videos over the last few months. I think I noticed a change with him after he put up (and then took down) that ridiculous AI video... I know he got a LOT of grief over that and I wonder if it might have …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I managed to finish up work much much earlier than expected (several hours) and my wife was visiting her parents, so it was the perfect time to get some gaming done: Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones The more I play this, the more I like it. It really does feel like the successor to Fallout 1 I wanted …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I'm very interested in how CyberMage goes. I remember playing a demo included with PC Gamer magazine back in the day, and not understanding it at all 🤣. I do believe that it was designed by D.W. Bradley of Wizardry V-VII fame!

Re: What game are you playing now?

Well, after 31 hours I think I'm going to DNF Betrayal at Krondor. I'll keep my save and maybe return to it sometime, but probably not for a long while. The pacing is too slow for me. I prefer a little more exploration and combat and a little less story. There's a lot of reading and a lot to …
