Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
But that whole annoyance semi-forced me to reconsider earlier games in the series. A good move, as it turns out. I have now embarked upon Wind Waker HD, and a couple of hours into it, I am quite enthralled. Quite spectacular and a lot of fun. There's a lot more to it than my uninformed-self had …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

Oh, I've got another one, and this one's a biggie: I think "real-time-with-pause" is awful and there isn't a single game that uses it that I don't think would be unequivocally better if it was purely turn-based. You've got your real-time RPGs that can at their best be as exciting as action games, …

Just started Super Mario 64 Plus, a further-modified version of the fan-made PC port of Super Mario 64 that tightens up the controls and improves the camera (plus other optional tweaks and improvements). I've never been able to properly play the original SM64 just because of how it's aged and how …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I prefer my RPGs to be more mentally played. I don't enjoy real-time RPGs that require amazing hand-eye coordination. The graphics and story so far are brilliant, I just hope it doesn't require too much twitch to play successfully. This is why I prefer turn-based RPGs where mind and tactics rule …

Well, at least there is a lot of other retro FPS these days. Which don't have this kind of controversy (or any controversy for that matter) attached to them. Have you heard of Viscerafest, Hrot, and Nightmare Reaper to name a few ? :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbQvLjFRUJo Oh man, those look …

Just finished up Ion Fury. It's amazing the scale and detail that went into some of the level design. Anyway, I just started Amid Evil. Weapons are pretty nice and pack quite a punch. Nice variety too. Ion Fury is amazing. I can't wait for the sequel / DLC. You know, I was really excited to play …

It's not a PC game, but a friend gave me Bravely Default II for my birthday, so I've been playing that. I love an RPG that lets me heavily customize my entire party and completely overhaul their builds from scratch on a whim, and Bravely Default's job system is probably the most flexible execution …

Re: Frys electronics is Closing.

We still had a local computer shop nearby in CA before I moved - but I haven't been in there in a few years so unknown if they were still really open. Like all those stores they were mainly in the repair business. It was a good place to buy simple specific components like cables and drive mounting …

Restarted Monkey Island 2. Using my old 3.5" floppy disks. Annoying thing is the dial. Was boring 30 years ago and still today... :) Some things never end :):) I don't like the new restyled graphics. The thing I like about the remakes is, with the push of a single key, you can swap back to the …

Doom3 was a bit of a departure from previous Doom games, for better or worse. You are right in that it's much more claustrophobic; haven't played it in quite some time but I think it pretty much stays that way the entire game. They were definitely going for something different in this iteration. …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I got hit with a nostalgia bug yesterday so I installed a few of the educational games I played as a little kid (and tragically gave away a few years later when my younger cousins got their first computer). The late 90's were a good time for those, though they tended to get remade/updated and re- …

Re: Frys electronics is Closing.

Aw man, that's really upsetting. You never see anywhere else in retail with the kind of selection you'd get at Fry's. Sure, online shopping exists, but if you need something right away, or if you don't know the name of something but you'd at least recognize it if you see it on the shelf, you kind of …

Re: Worst LucasArts/Sierra adventure game

in Milliways
Characters that act like r****** Wow, coming in hot with the slurs here, huh. Nice. On topic, it's hard to pick. Really I think a more accurate descriptor than "worst" might be "least good," since I can't think of any that aren't at least solid enough . Except maybe King's Quest VIII, but that's …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

That reminds me: Daggerfall has the best character creation in The Elder Scrolls franchise and one of the best in any RPG I've ever played. It also has a lot of other things I miss from more modern AAA RPGs. But it controls like ass, I could never configure it well enough to be at least somewhat …

On an intellectual level, I love the Ultima series, and I could ramble for hours about its evolution and legacy and the massive impact it's had on RPGs as a genre, both Western and Japanese. But I was only seven years old when the finale Ultima IX came out, never even heard of the series until more …

Re: Looking for info about this old game compilation

Interesting that they show Sim City classic on the front of the box, but its clearly Sim City 2000 in the screenshot on the back. I just noticed that earlier. I don't even know which of the two is included here since the box is still sealed. Demonstrates just how little effort went into these …

Re: Looking for info about this old game compilation

in Milliways
snip Interesting! I've never seen any of these compilations before. Would be nice if I could find this specific one, maybe find out if it's worth something sealed (probably not) or if I should just tear it open to play the games. I was surprised when I saw it had the whole Ultima Collection, too. …
