Re: What game are you playing now?

Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos I got through the Draracle's Cave in one go. I remember having a but of a rough time here my last time through, with the cavemen and the mosquitoes being particularly tough. This time, it was very easy. I think a big part of that is I chose Ak'Shel this time …

Re: What game are you playing now?

The Legend of Kyrandia: Hand of Fate I also ended up playing this for a bit. I finished the first game back when it was released (it was literally the first PC game I ever bought, along with Ultima VII and Quest for Glory III [that was a great day!!!]). It's one of the handful of point and click …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Interesting, do you know is this rebalancing only on CD version or do the updates released to the floppy version do the same? 1.23 patch is the last one released to floppy version but the readme seems to mention only that it fixes minor bugs with no mention what the previous patches did, or so I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos I've attempted this several times over the years, but usually end up quitting out of boredom (early on) or frustration (later in the game). The furthest I've gotten is the White Tower, which I remember being extremely tedious and/or frustrating. Anyway, I decided …

clueless1 wrote on 2022-05-16, 12:53: What about music? At least with a decent GM device it was one of my favorite gaming soundtracks. My vote is either LoL or Secret of the Silver Blades. 😉 Music is really good too 😀 I'll probably do LoL or SotSB then. Maybe both, since they play differently …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Thanks for posts on this game! I can't remember hardly any details, but I did finish this game on my Apple II probably when I was 13 or 14 years old (almost 40 years ago!). What I do remember is it seemed to take way longer than 10 hours though, and seemed bigger than life at the time with the time …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

I miss rental video places. It was expensive as hell and a fuking nightmare to remember to return the VHSs in time but me and my brother actually watched the entire Star Trek Voyager show on rental video. Nowadays everything is so accessable that I can't seem to appreciate movies/shows in the same …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima II: Revenge of the Enchantress (Apple II) Finally done with this! I'm not gonna lie: I followed a walkthrough for this one. I can't even imagine how many hours upon hours of grinding you'd need to do to save up enough gold to replenish your constantly dwindling HP and food as you explore …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

The internet has also allowed easy access for crazy to find crazy. It used to be impossible because you had to filter through so many sane people in your daily life. Definitely! I think you summarized the issue with social media perfectly. Social media was not created for a specific purpose ( …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

The wider internet, on the other hand, is like walking into a random large shopping mall and shouting "hey everyone, come here right now and give me your totally raw unqualified opinion on every single thing I do This is a good point. If you were walking around one day and some random person walked …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

I miss the 90s, too, though the early 21st century wasn't bad either. Personally, it can be fun to look back on the 80s/90s and remember how much better things were then. Companies were clearly hyping/marketing their products even back then, but it was much less obnoxious. If you didn't subscribe to …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima II (Apple II) I was able to put a little more time into this. I saved up enough for another round of stat upgrades, and my CHA+INT reached a level where I get a good discount on equipment, so I was off to buy the Power Armor. While traveling back and forth through time, I was pleased to see …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima II (Apple II) I've been putting 30-60 min. into this at night when I've got nothing to do, and I've started to appreciate the game in concept, but hate it in execution. The information gathering and exploration are both fine, and the quest isn't as random/crazy as it first seems. Once you …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress (Apple II) It's finally time to get through this piece of garbage lol. I've completed Ultima I, III, IV, and VII, and it's annoying me that I've never completed this one. I really enjoyed playing through Ultima I (DOS) around 20 years ago, and was looking …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Realms of Antiquity: The Shattered Crown I decided to restart this since it's been months since I last played, and I wasn't that far into it anyway. This is a very impressive RPG for the TI-99/4A released back in 2020. It's easily the most complex game on the platform, and is roughly in between …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Baldur's Gate Chapter 5 flew by in just a few hours. I assumed the main quest here would be longer, but it's really just a few required tasks with a ton of optional stuff. I think my party might be a bit underleveled at this point, as I've only been exploring places when I get actual leads within …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Baldur's Gate Playing through Ember put me in the mood for more (better) real-time w/pause combat, so it's back to BG! I had put BG aside because I was getting frustrated with the Cloakwood area, what with all the spiders and wyverns... but actually, it turns out that I was one screen over from the …
