Re: What game are you playing now?

I'm enjoying reading about your thoughts on Gold Box games. They are games I've wanted to try in recent years but never have. By the time I got my first PC, Ultima VII was almost out, so the Gold Box games had been out for several years and not considered new enough or advanced enough in my college …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I've not played with it at all, but this sounds like something that might be addressed in Gold Box Companion I linked in my previous post? I almost always prefer to play DOS games on my retro PC, but the Gold Box series might be one I try in DOSBox just to use the Gold Box Companion. Where I draw …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Pool of Radiance (PC) This weekend, I became hopelessly addicted to this game! I probably spent a good 6+ hours with short breaks Saturday, it's been a long time since I've put so much time into a game in a single sitting. I've got much of the area around Phlan cleared, though I haven't even really …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Taking a short break from Ultima V, which I am truly savoring! Instead, tonight I played: Pool of Radiance (PC) This is one I had for my C64 back when I was a kid. I didn't get far into it myself, but a friend of mine became obsessed with it and he spent several months of weekends at my house …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima V is probably my favorite Ultima of them all, moreso even than Ultima VII. To be honest, I would probably play Ultima V on my Amiga, as it was where I first experienced it and I remember graphics and sound to be a lot better too. Unfortunately, I never quite finished any Ultima game, but I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny (PC) Having completed Ultima IV recently, I have decided to play the only Ultima (except VIII, IX and the World of Ultima games) with which I have zero experience. I was immediately impressed with the writing, both in the manual and in the introduction. I was also …

Re: Playing GOG games on real Retro DOS PC

I'm honestly a bit disappointed with GOG in that it seems most of the DOS CD games they sell don't come with an actual working ISO. Most of the point and click adventure games use SCUMMVM, but even for games that use DOSBOX, I've found myself having to resort to archive.org to find actual ISOs for …

Re: What game are you playing now?

One day I want to play through all the Wizardrys and all the Zorks in proper sequence. These games go from the early 80s to late 90s and are some of the original games in their genres, but aren't very well knows today. I definitely recommend playing through all the Wizardry games. Of the early …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Also another game that I don't know if you all are aware of but in 2017 a modern game very similar to Wizardry 6 & 7 was released called 'Grimoire : Heralds of the Winged Exemplar'. I stumbled across this game in my Steam account saw that I had played it for almost 5 hours and have no idea why I …

Re: What game are you playing now?

M&M2 is actually my favourite of the old school M&M games. I know people love Xeen but there's a charm to the interface and CGA graphics that just does something for me. It took a lot of what the first game did right and then expanded upon it. Also check out the various ports of the first two games …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Good luck on M&M! That's one I'd love to take a stab at one day. I've played and beaten MM3 and 4, and came close to beating 6. MM3 and 6 are actually on my playlist and I'm sure I'll get to them sometime in the next year or two. Thanks! Actually, I just completed the game this morning haha... …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Dunno if back to back posts are looked down upon here, but here's an update: Ultima: Quest of the Avatar (FC) I'm just a couple hours away from finishing this. I finished exploring every dungeon but the Abyss, gathered everything I need to finish the game, maxed out my reagents, and got my Avatar to …

Re: What is something you threw out that u regret

I'm in the market for a dedicated DOS gaming PC, and looking at the prices out there (esp. considering I am in Japan), I really wish I held onto my first PC—a 386SX-16. A little slow, but perfectly viable for the kinds of games I play (RPGs mostly). I remember playing Gold Box games, Ultima VI, Wing …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Ultima: Quest of the Avatar FC Another day, another dungeon. I've got 5 of the dungeons completely explored now and am very slowly gaining the gold I need to get the +1 Bow for my Avatar (Ranger), otherwise he's got the best equipment possible. I maxed out his STR and DEX, so only INT is left. …

Re: What game are you playing now?

... I'll look forward to reading your gaming posts in this thread! Cheers! Thank you for the kind post, clueless1! Actually, it was your posts in this very thread that got me to join VOGONS and post here! I'm looking forward to reading more of your Wizardry thoughts. I plan on playing Wizardry 6 …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Hey guys, big CRPG fan here. I've become quite addicted over the past year or so, having completed Wizardry 1-3+5, The Bard's Tale 1-4, Wasteland 1, and Ultima 1. Right now I'm working on a few at the same time... Dragon Wars (PC) I just started this up a few days ago, but am really having a blast …
