Re: What game are you playing now?

Powerslave Playing this on an actual DOS machine is a pain due to the weird controls that can't really be reconfigured how I would like, so I'm using the Raze engine to play this. So far, it's alright. It's much simpler than the holy trinity of Build engine games and doesn't have much going for it …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I loved Duke3D back in the day, Blood I've grown to appreciate over the years, but Shadow Warrior never really held my attention for some reason - it could be the difficulty of it, I'm easily offended on that front. But SW sure does look and sound fantastic! If you ever decide to revisit SW , I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Shadow Warrior (1997) This is the only game out of the "big three" Build engine games I never completed, though I did actually buy it back in the day (I still have my original CD!). From what I had played of it, I didn't like it as much as Duke 3D or Blood . So I decided to finally complete this …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Lords of the Fallen (2023) First of all, it annoys me that I have to specify the year, since they ridiculously decided to use the same name of a game from 2014 in what I guess is a weird but crass attempt to leverage the extremely limited success of the original game. Anyway, LotF (2023) has …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I like to go on "period correct" gaming journeys using old books and magazines. I find it fun to start with a blank hard drive and install/play games in the order that they come up in old magazines. Same goes for the old books that came with a CD full of shareware games. I do have a couple of the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

It's been a long time since I got some good old DOS gaming done! A couple days ago I finally cleaned up the area around my dedicated DOS machine, and now that I'm not forced to see a disgusting sea of wires, I was finally in the mood to start the computer up and play some games. Ripley's Believe It …

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

I'm mainly interested in indies when it comes to modern games. Many of these are made by solo developers or small teams. Of course, what you said holds true for the AAAs. Agreed 100%. A quiet revolution happened without many realizing it, including the gaming news sites. If you want to play games …

Re: Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep

I completed both this and the Director's Cut version without a problem back in 2019 and 2020. This was on a Windows 10 laptop with i7-7700, GTX 1050ti, and 32GB RAM. Maybe some bug has been added since then?

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire It's been a little while since I've played some computer games. It's now summer in the newtmonkey caves, so I've been spending my evenings in the living area, which is well ventilated and cool at night, rather than the computer area, which builds up heat during the …

Re: Video games are too heavily monetized these days

To be honest, I can't find any good games nowadays to play. That's so sad. There are plenty of great games being released, but you have to look outside of the mainstream. It's like with movies and music... at some point you aren't part of the target audience anymore, and the games aren't being made …

Re: What game are you playing now?

You're really making me want to play this game. :) I've still got a bit to go on MM3, but so many options are open for my next one... I really recommend it! It's a massive improvement over the first game in every way, and I think you'll like the turn-based combat mode. :) Likewise, I've been …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire I played this for a couple more hours completing some side-quests to prepare for the next step in the main quest. This game is just awesome. I ended up really liking PoE1 , but this game is just something else. My greatest annoyances with PoE1 were all of the boring …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire What a game! There's so much to do in this game, and all of it is so fun. After the intro area the game really just sets you loose in the world, and you can just do what you want. You can decide to just follow the plot, stick around the main port city and do …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Glad you are enjoying it, I'd be interested to hear your opinion on the ship combat, I hated that more than anything, I felt it was very poorly implemented, I wish the ship had just been transportation. Thanks! Honestly, I have been avoiding ship combat, and instead just board the enemy ship and go …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire I simply cannot stop playing this game. I want to immediately start it back up again every time I exit the game. Sailing is such a good addition. It gives the game a unique feel (far better than the actual lore of the game imo), and once you've got access to your …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire I put a few more hours into this over the weekend. So far, so good. It actually starts out quite difficult even on the "normal" difficulty level, as one of the mandatory encounters is actually pretty tough for a level 1 party; it must be even harder if you are …
