Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
I definitely don't mind! Thanks! It sounds like you've played a lot more RPGs than I have. Any others (either old or modern) stand out to you? I don't think I've played and completed more than you have! Since you enjoyed the latter Wizardry titles so much, I'd definitely recommend The Bard's Tale …

Thanks! I'll add those to my list. I've still got a pretty decent backlog of turn-based RPGs on my to-play list, including Arcanum, the Avadon and Avernum series and The Bard's Tale Trilogy. If you don't mind, I'd like to give my thoughts on these games :) Who knows, it may help you to decide which …

I felt exactly the same about the combat system. It's also why after finishing Baldur's Gate, I've put off BG2. I transferred my party into it and have it installed, ready to go, but every time I finish a game and start deciding on a next game, I pass it up. I'm a turn-based snob. Speaking of which …

@Shagittarius - I'm completely agnostic to graphics in RPGs. I've played more DOS-based RPGs then any other era, so Lords of Xulima looked like modern triple-A graphics to me. ;) @Standard Def Steve - weird games have a certain charm. A couple of others that come to mind are Inca for MS-DOS and Low …

I never managed to enjoy Stalker either. I hope to play the first two Metro games at some point. These days I'm just trying to finish up Doom (2016) and Pillars of Eternity (2015) before year end. The former is possible, the latter is a tall ask.. It took me 3 attempts over multiple years to finish …

@badmojo - that looks like a game I could really get into. I didn't like the original Fallout enough to finish it and never played another one. There's a handful of games like this that I like or want to try: -the Stalker series -the Metro series (I've beaten Metro 2033) -Fallout 4 I'm currently …

I am a System Shock Remastered backer. :) Cyborg Enforcer + art book backer right here baby! Just waiting for my box set treasure to arrive one day. ss1_remastered_box_set.png It's been a LONG time! That whole detour they took with changing it to System Shock "faithful reboot", then flopping back …

I'm with you clueless1. Played the first Bioshock and it just didn't do it for me like SS1 and especially SS2 did. I agree with Shagittarius though, try to get all the way through it and see what you think. I do remember Bioshock having some of the best water effects for its time. I was so …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Bioshock is terrific, Bioshock 2 is even better from a gameplay perspective, but not as a whole... I didn't much care for the setting of Bioshock but it's one of the few games that I've finished - the gameplay and story were quite compelling. I'm a little less than an hour in so I don't have a huge …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Just started Bioshock Remastered. Graphics are quite nice. Never played the original, so not sure how much better the remastered version is. Interesting side note: I noticed my framerates were in the 200-300fps range and GPU usage was around 80%, so I turned vsync on since I have a 60Hz monitor and …

Re: List of PC games that you have beaten

Just now, I've completed Wizardry 8 to complete the Dark Savant Trilogy. All told, this trilogy took me just over a year in time to complete: Wizardry 6: 111 hours in 72 days (8/30/19 to 11/10/19) Wizardry 7: 201 hours in 131 days (11/12/19 to 3/22/20) Wizardry 8: 148 hours in 133 days (4/26/20 to …

Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

I'd almost forgotten about Inca! This game is gorgeous considering it was made in '92 and has a great soundtrack. It actually plays well on a 386 and lists 286 as minimum requirements.

in DOS
As a RPG and DSA / Realms of Arkania fan: Realms of Arkania - Star Trail And the other two games but part is the most memorable for me. (Kill the "remakes" with fire!) Yeah, I beat both ROA1 and 2 and found the graphics charming, but not at the level of many of the other games mentioned here. I do …

I'm in the home stretch of Wizardry 8! In Ascension Peak and the 2nd of 3 regions before the endgame battle with the Dark Savant. I hope to have a report this weekend in the List the Games You've Beaten post. So far my characters are level 20-22, not sure if I need to grind them up a bit more (we'll …

Ah yes, you are right about the first person few. There might also be simply too many 2D objects around, that often are literally in your face. The controls and not being able to change them was sadly quite common in old games. Playing Ultima Underworld with cursor keys wasn't great either, so I …

Re: Most beautiful Dos-Games for a 486...what are your favorites?

Agree with everything you said. I really wanted to like Albion and I played it for about 10 hrs but there were UI issues that made it too hard to continue, so I retired from it. :( What UI issues do you have? I find that the game is quite hard at the beginning with limited healing items, combat …
