Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
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: What game are you playing now?

Our family's been on vacation for 10 days, and I'm just getting back into the swing of things after returning last Sunday, so this morning was my first gaming session in 18 days. Just got a little over an hour of gaming in on Avernum: Escape from the Pit. It's a simple enough game that it didn't …

Re: Bought these games today

Just picked up Sniper Elite 4 on a Steam sale for $6. It's been on my wishlist for awhile but this time I couldn't resist the 90% off sale. Not sure when I'll play it, probably mid to late summer. It looks and sounds like a game right up my alley (I'm a Wolfenstein fan). I know it doesn't have the …

Re: Most disappointing games?

Ultima VIII: Pagan Once I got over the great soundtrack and nice animation, I soon realized what a massive disappointment this game was (and is). No party, even worse combat than in Ultima VII, no character portraits, a world that felt completely artificial compared with the impressive worlds of …

Re: Most disappointing games?

in Milliways
Probably the most disappointing game I played was the DOS RPG Albion . I heard great things about it. Reviews were great. Nice graphics, nice music, turn-based combat. All in an outer space setting. Then I tried playing it. Many times. There were two main issues: -switching between three different …

Re: Other hobbies?

I'd consider auto maintenance one of my main hobbies other than gaming and retro PCs. I like doing work myself if I'm capable. That typically means any and all fluid and filter changes, tire rotation, spark plugs and coils, brakes, throttle body, PCV, MAF/O2 sensors and other replaceable components. …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit Gaming time is still hard to come by lately. I'm getting between 3-6 hours a week in, which makes progress slow. Currently I have 40 hours into this game over 44 days. It is getting more fun and interesting each time I play, though. I have settled on Normal difficulty …

Queen's Wish: The Conqueror However, you earn EXP only from completing quests and "boss" monsters. The game goes even one step further than this; if you leave a dungeon without killing the boss, most if not all enemies respawn. On top of that, you gain nothing from slaying regular enemies. The …

Re: PCI Graphics Roundup - DOS

do you have some benchmarks for this? I thought all nvidia cards until geforce fx (5xxx) starting with riva128 shared the same 2d core. I remember I DOS-benchmarked my K6-3 with a matrox mystique, riva 128, tnt2 ultra and gf3-500 against a gf4 4600, and the gf4 was the fastest in that setup great …

Re: PCI Graphics Roundup - DOS

When you get to GF4 and GF5, DOS performance starts to go down. do you have some benchmarks for this? I thought all nvidia cards until geforce fx (5xxx) starting with riva128 shared the same 2d core. I remember I DOS-benchmarked my K6-3 with a matrox mystique, riva 128, tnt2 ultra and gf3-500 …

Avernum: Escape from the Pit I'm now 30 hours into this RPG. I don't feel like I'm even close to halfway through it. My gaming time has been cut down lately, maybe 5 hours a week. Mostly on the weekends. So it's hard to get a rhythm going and remember what I was doing and where I left off. But it's …

Re: Ultima VI Adlib vs Roland

U7 and WC1/2 are three of several games where I got immersed in and played them to completion with the Adlib soundtrack. After dozens of hours of that being imprinted on me, hearing the MT32 version the first few times just sounded...wrong. It just depends on your previous experience. There is no …

Finished the main story of The Witcher 3. Third playthrough for me and still thoroughly enjoyed the game, in game clock showed 99h 1min and I didn't even do every side quest and skipped entirely almost all of those question mark points of intrest the maps are full of. Can't claim the lenght of the …

I think it was a copper key in the second level of the tower. I got in the same situation and simply hexed one as I didn't want to start over. I wrote about it in this thread back in the day, so I looked it up: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=585737#p585737 (it was level 6) And here are my …

Rather than retry EOB1, I'm going to just play EOB2. Maybe my next RPG after the one I'm playing now. My issue was I got into a "can't proceed" situation. I can't remember the details but it involved needing a key to move to the next level that I could no longer get and I didn't have a save prior …

I would urge you to retry EOB1 and Fallout 1 but I can actually see why they may be frustrating from a difficulty standpoint. And for Fallout 1, the UI is pretty bad LOL. Rather than retry EOB1, I'm going to just play EOB2. Maybe my next RPG after the one I'm playing now. My issue was I got into a …

I either play a game to completion without any sabbatical, or DNF and move on. There's not many I've DNF'd: Eye of the Beholder 1 Fallout 1 Worlds of Ultima: Martian Dreams Albion Far Cry 1 Dark Sun: Shattered Lands Betrayal at Krondor The reasons mostly come down to poor UI, difficulty too high, …
