Re: What game are you playing now?

Ahhh, the plot thickens! The storyline in Eschalon: Book III is starting to pique my interest even more. 😀 I'm almost 6 hours into the third and final game of this trilogy. Such a good RPG series...

Re: What game are you playing now?

I started Eschalon: Book III last night. I really love this series! I played Book I in late 2017/early 2018, Book II in mid-2019, and now completing the trilogy. It's a great RPG for those who love old school-style RPGs, those who don't have a lot of time, and those who like a relaxing, yet …

The toughness of some of those last battles is one reason I will probably never replay HL2. Good game but I still feel exhausted thinking about it. And then there was that horror level... After about another hour of trying, I gave up in frustration and just watched the last 10 minutes of the game …

I'm having a heck of a time beating the last big battle in Half-Life 2 Episode 2. The one where you defend the base against the waves of Striders. I've tried and failed at least 3 times and each go takes a good 10-15 minutes. So far I'm almost 9 hours into this add-on. I know I'll get it eventually, …

I have forgotten how realistic and difficult Red Baron II is. It's me, with all realism turned down, desperately pursuing a novice enemy, and still can't bring him down. https://i.postimg.cc/prBPytnj/Baron-2021-01-07-22-29-30-46.jpg Why don't you just stand still, you little f$&ker! Fokker? Replace …

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

I had some extra disposable income from bonuses and such, so decided to upgrade the CPU in my main rig from an i5-4590 to an i7-4770, knowing it would not be a huge upgrade except in very specific situations. I wanted to max out my system (an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Tower). Well, almost max it out, as …

I'll be starting Half-Life 2 Episode 2 this evening. I just finished Episode 1. Man, that last chapter in Episode 1! Anyhow, Chapter 1 took me 7 hours to finish. I wish more games were this short. At this stage of my life, I'd rather pay $30 for a 20 hour game than $50 for a 50 hour game.

After finishing Half-Life 2: Update, I started Episode 1. I'm about 4.5 hours in and am in the middle of Chapter 4: Urban Flight. There's 5 chapters in Episode 1, so I should finish in the next day or two. Then on to Episode 2.

Re: List of PC games that you have beaten

Half-Life 2 2021-01-02 16_38_42-HALF-LIFE 2.png Just finished this masterpiece! It took me 31 hours to complete and due to me being on vacation, was able to average about 2 hours a day, so I finished this somewhat quickly in 16 days. Thoughts...I was a bit annoyed with the early parts of the game, …

Re: Post your 'current' PC

Built myself a new computer in the end of 2019 and it turned out pretty much exactly how I wanted it. Old case that I converted to ATX many years ago with brand new parts and lots of performance that I don't need :) Hardware: CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Motherboard: Asus Prime X570-Pro RAM: Corsair 32GB …

I'm nearing the end of Chapter 10 - Anticitizen One - in Half-Life 2. I guess I'm getting pretty close to the end? I've put 25.5 hours into this so far. I've been on staycation for the past week, so I'm getting about 2 hours of gaming in per day! Back to work the first Monday of January, so I'm …

Re: When did you purchase your first 386 / 486 Computer? Availability vs the early 90's affordability norm.

In 1991 I got a Packard Bell 386sx 20 system as a college graduation gift. This was my first PC after being on Apple IIe since 1983. It was this system that I beat Ultima VII and Wing Commander I and II. Good memories. It had an Aztech sound/modem and Cirrus Logic integrated VGA. It came with Win …
