Re: What game are you playing now?

Keep us posted on your progress. This sounds intriguing. Are you playing in emulation or on your Apple? I'd be tempted to play through AppleWin for the Mockingboard emulation... I'm playing this one on an emulator, for the same reason (no Mockingboard on my IIc) and also because I don't want to …

Nox Archaist (PC [Apple II]) This is an extremely ambitious "old-school" RPG developed and released for the Apple II in 2020. It's a bit more advanced technically than Ultima V, and is an interesting look at what a possible followup to that legendary game might have looked like on the Apple II. It …

I'm playing Star Wars Dark Forces 2. Never completed it before, and this is the GOG version on Windows 7. It works fine with 3D acceleration. You can hear the bar music already can't you. On my playlist! Same boat as you, I had it and played it when it was current, but never finished it. Enjoy, …

I just completed the Annihilation Line DLC for Terminator: Resistance. Took me 11 hours. The main campaign took 25 hours. It was a really good game, one of my favorite FPS experiences ever! Highly recommended. Thanks @liqmat for gifting me this game...you were absolutely right about this hidden gem, …

Re: Ark Logic PCI, an interesting VGA card.

I'm the happy owner of Stingray 64 ARK PCI card. I didn't run it yet, but I can't find any information about it's RAMDAC (ARK194B-13) and possible problems with it. Anyone heard about it or has a card with it ? Here's picture of my card : https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/784081115505229837/ …

We just finished Stranger Things 4 last night. I felt like it was a poor season overall. All previous seasons started slow and built up to a tense climax, however this one started tense and built up to a forgettable anti-climax. The cliffhanger ending also did nothing for me. Part of the problem is …

Re: Pc printers get worse and worse

https://www.hp.com/us-en/printers/instant-ink/plans.html This is a really good deal assuming you have a printer model that is supported. This still seems very expensive. 100 pages a month for $6 or 300 pages for $12? Not sure just how many pages a genuine, full volume set of injet cartridges can …

Re: Pc printers get worse and worse

Sharing some of my experience... I used to swear by laserjets, back when I used to print a lot and did not need color printing, scanning or anything. Monochrome laserjets are not too big, not too expensive, very reliable, cost-efficient per page, and print fast. However, add extra features ( …

Terminator: Resistance Finished! Yay. Took me 25 hours and 14 minutes, tracked manually. By GOG's timer, it took 31 hours and 6 minutes. So apparently I left the game up and running for 6 hours while paused. Very satisfying end sequence, from the final battle to the final cutscenes. Quality written …

We've been using the same HP Officejet Pro 8610 for almost 7 years now. The printhead died earlier this year (after 6 years of continuous service) and I bought a replacement for ~$120. Other than that, the only cost has been ink. It's been enrolled in HPs Instant Ink service that granted, is web …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I highly recommend this game to FPS fans. I rank it right up there with my favorites -- the Metro and Wolfenstein series. I'd somehow never even heard of this game. Steam reviews do seem quite good though (it's sitting @ 92%). And just in time for the Summer Steam sale @ 50% off. That's actually a …

Terminator: Resistance I've now played 15 hours in 15 days. I'm about to head to the Hollywood Hills level, which appears to be roughly 3/4 through the game. I have to say, this is one of the most fun FPS I've ever played. I'm really confused by the mixed reviews of this game, as it seems like a …

Terminator: Resistance First impressions now that I'm about 2 hrs in. It took quite awhile to dial in the graphic settings. I'm running an i7-4770 and GTX1650 Super. The first section is at night, so graphics performance was good. I jacked up the details and thought I was good to go, til I got to …

I decided to DNF Avernum: Escape from the Pit. I spent close to 90 hours and 4 months playing it, so this is easily the furthest I've gotten into a game without completing it. The bottom line is it is too confusing to separate the main plot from side quests. My open quests page is littered with …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit I'm now 70 hrs into this game and feel like I'm getting somewhat close to the end. The trouble with this game is it's so open-ended and the amount of open quests and what order to do them in can get to be overwhelming. In these situations, I often get frozen in …

There was a book the Last Kingdom by a guy named Cornwall or Cornwell. Typical viking/angli-saxon period faire. I still have the book, haven't but skummed the first few pages as of yet. Movie ratings are based on criticisms. I don't want to sit through something because no one told me it was bad ( …
