Re: What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

in Milliways
if it genuinely runs all those AAA games it might make an alternative to the Switch and others for some, but it looks like a niche product that is destined to be on an episode of an LGR type program 15 years from now along with a few "i remember those", " they were quite cool, wonder why it didnt …

Re: Windows 3.x games that don't work in Windows

in Windows
I'm not sure if compatibility with windows 10 has been tested before and there are already lists out there, probably meanwhile a complete list of games for windows 3.x would be good https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Windows_3.x_games is one useful starter and many of these are win 32 compatible …

Re: What do you regret throwing out?

in Milliways
i kind of regret various things and PCs thrown years ago and yet realistically if i still had those 486's and the like would i actually be happier or more able to enjoy the hobby. probably not, so maybe it's ok to have let them go - just a shame some of them didn't go to other people to enjoy though …

Re: Do you dislike the British?

in Milliways
We are not responsible for the past before us, but we cannot deny it defines most of how our life is going to be in the future. If one was born in a more privileged place, this person is in no position to decide in how people in less privileged places should feel about how unfair things are. Plus, …

Re: What hardware do you think belongs in a museum?

in Milliways
I agree with the time frames already discussed, all have fair points. There'll never be one absolute perfect answer/year. I know it's not a moving/relative reference, but the turn of the millennium is another very simple milestone which anybody can relate to. A somewhat inversion of the hopeful …

Turrican II on PC (vs Turrican II Amiga) Heresy. maybe its in the controls somehow though i cant see that myself. graphically there are some differences but i like the colours better on the amiga and the music sounds better - but totally understand that's somewhat hardware dependent to be honest i …

Re: graphics that over promise and under deliver

in Milliways
I have noticed that some 3D FPS games age well and some do not. Crysis is still like new. Return to Castle Wolfenstein is so old and dated with its Quake 3 Arena engine, but it is still fun to play. But older medal of Honors look goofy today. And that Wolfenstein that came after looks worse somehow …

Interestingly, this has been brought up before in these forums: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=784026#p784026 That topic also has a link to an article I found quite interesting and enjoyable to read (and very glad you brought this up so I can re-read it): https://eev.ee/blog/2016/06/22/ …

graphics that over promise and under deliver

in Milliways
I've been playing a few 'modern' games, the sort that have much more realistic graphics like crysis, far cry 2, even solider of fortune payback - and these are over 10 years old, playstation 3 era really. Current games are really great looking I always feel these games somehow promise more than they …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Nox! I enjoyed that, especially the earlier part of the game before it turns into a relentless battle fest I played through soldier of fortune 1 and 2 recently and so i then played soldier of fortune payback - but that one disappoints. It has fairly good game mechanics and the graphics are …
