Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Continuing my late-to-the-party first Breath of the Wild playthrough, I'm about 30 hours in. It seems like I am 1/4 to 1/3 of the way through the game. The sheer refinement and balance of all the elements that make up the game are continually astounding. Such excellence is of course a common, …

Re: Ultimate multi-sound card setup?

It seems to me that the greatest challenge is when trying to cover both DOS and Windows in one machine, when in reality it's challenge enough just to broadly cover one operating system alone. Here's my rough attempt (theoretical) : Audigy 2(ZS or otherwise, doesn't make a great deal of difference …

Bear with me - my gaming experiences tend to lag a few years behind everyone else. I like it this way. It's a lot cheaper, and I never have to wait for anything's release. That said, reading about it won't be the most interesting thing among those people for whom such recountings are the tired old …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

1985. The year of the Sega Master System.The Commodore Amiga. The Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA). The Atari ST. Until 1994. The technical pinnacle for DOS. Genius coders directly accessing hardware. Everything got weird after that, by becoming normal. All kinds of standards were imposed to …

Started playing through the 2019 SMS game Voyage - A Sorceress' Vacation (free to download, there is also a purchase-able physical release). Many will be familiar with it already - a fanmade "total conversion" based upon Alex Kidd in Miracle World. It's pretty cool. Nice graphics, music, level …

Re: Why people still love XP

But that's not the point. The whole attitude of Windows changed from an assisting OS to being a total control freak. Windows stepped firmly into the new era of user control with SP2 of XP. MS needed to reign in the security nightmare their own prior works had created, and to do that, they chose to …

Alas, I do not. I made the sorts of youthful mistakes you make as a 13 year old and we stopped being friends at some point. I found him and emailed him at some point a few years ago, but never heard back. Yes. I've run into this over the years. Contact old friend. I usually get no response to …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Plague or Paradise Lost Everyone has different tastes. Most modern gaming just doesn't do it for me, especially on the PC. It's all so derivative and tech-showoff based, to me. I'm pleased for you that you enjoy it so much, though. Nintendo's made some great modern games, …

Well, yes and no. GUIs are inter faces . And that's what most people without disorders do react very sensitive to. A sad or angry face causes them a different feeling than a happy or sleepy one. So it's not completely irrelevant. People are still people, after all. Some faces even cause anxiety and …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I f'ing loved these things when younger. Perhaps because they were part of an entire experience: being a teen, discovering adult humour while still having full appreciation for the immature stuff, surfing on the cutting edge of society driving forwards into a new age, and all that jazz.(...) No man …

Re: Why people still love XP

I don't have huge attachment to any particular GUI. I mean, they're just a GUI: a child-simple menu-y thing to click at a few times while you load an application. They may be fancy graphical fireworks shows these days, comparatively speaking, but ultimately they've changed very little in 30 years. …
