Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Sometimes this hobby pisses me off so much that I have to fight the urge to rent a huge trash container and get rid of it all. Trash it, declutter, be happy that I don't have to deal with another terrible computer issue ever again. Do I even need more complications in my life? When it happens I'm …

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

To be honest, I can't find any good games nowadays to play. That's so sad. There are plenty of great games being released, but you have to look outside of the mainstream. It's like with movies and music... at some point you aren't part of the target audience anymore, and the games aren't being made …

Re: Looking for a 9 Inch LCD/CRT substitute

I think that you'd be hard pressed to find a CRT monitor that meets your criteria for a reasonable price. Whenever I see CRT monitors listed on Facebook Marketplace, they are usually late 90s monitors and bigger than 9 inches. Ebay will probably cost you a premium. If you don't mind losing an inch, …

Re: Bought these games today

I've yet to try it myself, but as far as I know Blade Runner has zero item puzzles. Supposedly it's all about finding clues and detective work, so perhaps also something you might want to check out especially if you happen to like the original movie. Also I do wonder how many got burned out from …

Re: Bought these games today

It's a shame because I feel like the adventure genre is ideal for exploration, especially if you feel like problem solving instead of action. The Colonel's Bequest feels ahead of its time in this respect. It was all about exploration and gathering information rather than puzzle solving. Thanks! …

Re: Bought these games today

Bought a release boxed version of Full Throttle and an other rerelase of Sam and Max hits the road in a crappy dvd cover. I never played them to the end before. Full Throttle was amazing. There was supposed to be a sequel, but it was cancelled. A casualty of the adventure game genre dying off. …

Re: Running DOS games from Win98 Explorer

Some games work fine on DOS, but they work horribly on Windows. For example, Quake I under DOS works perfectly, but on Windows it slows down or has problems with frame synchronization (breaks, jerks), which is not at all acceptable for a first-person shooter. I don't know how often Windows 98 uses …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I have an i3 12100f and was getting temperatures well into the 80s when gaming. My "modern" activity was to troubleshoot this. Ended up that the stock cooler wasn't fastened 100% as one of the pushpins clicked into place when I pressed firmly on it. Now my temperatures only go into the 60s.

Re: What game are you playing now?

The story is a bit shallow, and I wish it had bigger guns. https://i.imgur.com/mnej6qs.jpeg I love the STALKER games. They are unmatched when it comes to atmosphere! If you want bigger guns due to the enemies being bullet spongy, I believe that's affected by the difficulty settings. A lot of people …
