Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I had a lot of fun with this game. I played and beat it back between February and May of 2018, if you're interested in searching my comments on it. Thanks for mentioning this, I went back and found your posts. I agree 100% so far, though I'm still early into the game (maybe 10 hours or so). Did you …

Lords of Xulima I've had this in my Steam library for some time now, but finally decided to play it. I ended up getting quite addicted to it, and played it for 5-6 hours straight. It's been years since I've done that! The best way of describing this game is classic Might & Magic with an isometric …

Lurking: Immortui (PC) Finished! This is a really fantastic classic style CRPG, heavily inspired by Ultima III through V. The game allows for full party creation right from the start, and uses a character creation system based on skill points. Each character has a set of attributes (that mostly …

I was able to beat the game! The final boss was such a pain in the ass to defeat, but I eventually did it. This is my first time ever playing through the game to completion, btw, and I've gotta say that the ending was really cool. So yeah, the game is completeable on these specs, but performance …

I'm still chugging away on Kingdom Come Deliverance, and still loving it. I'd wager that it may end up being my favorite RPG of all time when I'm done with it. It's a game that you need to sink about 20 hours in before it really grabs you, so I can see why some people have dismissed it. I haven't …

Still on KCD and still loving it. I haven't had much time to play (maybe 5 hrs a week) so my progress is slow. One thing I've come to love about this game is the archery mechanics. Very difficult, no aiming reticle, you kind of have to get good at going by feel. I had one standout point recently …

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 …
