Re: What game are you playing now?

Wizardry 6 on MS-DOS 6.22 (k6 3+ @500 with setmul@ min) I recommend a sound card with a PC Speaker header for a better aural experience. It's a long game (took me 111 hours when I beat it in 2019) but very addictive and satisfying. I did transfer my party over to 7 and then 8 and it was an epic …

Debating what to play next, but I think I want to bounce back to using my 99' PC, and also something I haven't played before. Maybe Settlers 2? I was just doing that this morning, even though I'm nowhere near finishing KCD. I like listing out games I want to play, then ranking them. I'll come back …

Kingdom Come Deliverance Just a quick update. I'm now 55.5 hours in. I've never been the type who spends much time in side quests, but I'm enjoying them so much in this game that I'm putting the main quest off (I'm on Nest of Vipers) for a bit. I think building my character up will be a good thing …

It's PC speaker and Tandy only, sadly. Well.. that kind of sucks. The P Speaker is really annoying for playing anything at night when the rest of the household is asleep. I will probably end up playing Azure bonds through Pools on Amiga then. Which is just as well, I have Sİlver Blades and Pools of …

Congrats, newtmonkey! Yeah, the ending blew my 14 year old, circa-1984-mind away! I'm not sure I could ever enjoy a game from that era today the way I did back then, which is one of the reasons I've limited my retro gaming to 1990 and later. On your to-play-next list, have you tried each of them …

Kingdom Come Deliverance I somehow ended up inadvertently starting a DLC while visiting Peshek and Theresa in Rattay on my way to looking for Reeky. The DLC is called A Woman's Lot and has actually been pretty decent. What I didn't like was the game didn't warn me I was about to start a DLC and I …

Ultima III: Exodus (PC) Getting pretty addicted to this! I was afraid that getting the Mark of Kings (which allows you to advance beyond a certain level) would cause some havoc with the level-scaling enemies, but that hasn't been the case at all. Land-roaming enemies seemed to top off in difficulty …

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 …
