Dumb-Ass-Monkey: That Guy What Stole the Bacon: Dumb-Ass-Monkey: I'm about 160 hours into my very first runthrough of Skyrim. I killed Alduin 20 or so hours ago, and helped conquer most of Skyrim (for the Stormcloaks) like 50 hours ago. There are still holdout cities and camps with unkillable legates. I assume this means I'm not done yet, but I'm not sure. In the meantime, I'm just knocking out side quests left and right.

Any advice?

You're pretty much done, though play the Thieves' Guild line if you haven't yet. Then, Play Fallout: NV until New California finally drops.

I'm still collecting the stones so I can be a full member, even tho I'm already head of the guild. I'm also a vampire, werewolf, head of the companions, head of the assassins, head of the nightingales (i think), arch-mage of the college, and a bard. And probably a couple other things I've forgotten over the last few weeks.


I would have liked it if some of the quest lines precluded others. I never really liked it that you could be EVERYTHING if you just put in the hours.

McGrits: I just started Divinity: OS2. I picked the dwarf (beast) as a cleric. I am only on the second level of the opening ship. Hopefully I won't have to restart too many times from stupid character build decisions.

I tried to play some old castlevania on a raspberry pi NES emulator. The sweet memories didn't flood back.


Started recently as a battlemage Red Prince lizard guy. Pretty sure I already messed up my party config (too much fire).
Talking to rats is fun though

Picked up Shadow of Mordor on a $5 sale and had no real expectations for it at all, but it's actually rather fun.  You get to be both immortal and overwhelmingly powerful, but it's still not a cakewalk since there are just so many damn orcs.  The nemesis system is a great idea- you actually get to know some of the orcs (and they know you) so you end up being pissed at that one guy who's randomly shown up twice right as you're finishing a difficult fight with another named orc and called down a freaking swarm of orcs to fight all over again.

Plus, I love the bit when you call up the spirit to gain intel from an orc- - that "Forfeit your mind!" followed by the look of (really well animated) terror on the face of the orc is just awesome

I keep trying Divinity Original Sin 2 but I can't seem to get into it.  I know there is a way to re-do your skill points at some point in the game but I keep deleting my chars and starting over because I convince myself I've mad a grave error in setting up the char.

Also working on Witcher 3 as I never beat it when it came out and now I have all the DLC as well.

WoW but mainly just for raid night, 8/9 on heroic Tomb of Sargeras.

Lothar IB: ox45tallboy: Why has no one released a sequel to The Bard's Tale remake?

inXile is currently making Bards Tale 4. They made Wastelands 2, Torment and are working on Wasteland 3 so they are a bit busy. I think I recall them saying they wanted to revisit the Bards Tale remake in one of the kickstarter videos they did they. I wouldn't think it would happen anytime soon.


I'm playing Divinity Original Sin 2. Pretty awesome turn based combat RPG. Multiple ways to accomplish goals and the environmental effects in combat are great. Something other RPGs should incorporate imo.


They had better get Cary Elwes and a good writer or six, or I shall be forced to sulk for at least a week. Play it like the last one with a occasional 4th wall break and a sarcastic take on RPG tropes, and I shall be a happy camper.

Yeah I can't wait for the sequel, hopefully it lives up to the hype.

I am currently still playing Skies of Arcadia Legends (in stereoscopic 3D because of my addiction to silly gimmicks). I suppose that would also address the question of the headline.

I also recently discovered that my 3DS XL (not a New model, though) is on exploitable firmware, so I grabbed soundhax and a guide and now I have CFW installed on the system. I have ordered a 64GB SD card and I plan to rip all of my 3DS games to it, then I will look into system emulators -- though I may end up 'acquiring' some Virtual Console titles and using injection as that apparently produces better results.

Additionally, I picked up Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice on GOG because reviews are positive and I wanted to support an independent developer who is not going through a publisher who demands the inclusion of microtransactions or who insists that the game content be broken apart with removed components sold as DLC.

I will hopefully get some 'mersion time in Elite Dangerous this weekend.

Oh, and I learned about this. I think that I am going to have to check this out.

Petey4335: GRCooper: Still computerless for the next week and a half, so living vicariously through forums about the big Elite Dangerous update.

Any of you E:D guys been blowed up by Thargoids yet?

No.  But I am 2000 LY away from home, on my way to 3 lonely little neutron stars I found while searching for them.  They are not all that near to any nebula or other points of interests.  I have about 10 more hops to go to the first one and I haven't seen a claimed system in the last 10.  I may be able to claim then?


Cool, it's always cool to get the first discoverer message :)

In reading about the updates, I'm kind of glad I've been offline for a couple of months.  With the ability to craft heatsinks and the new repair limpets, etc., I'm probably going to cut this galaxy circumnavigation short and run back to the bubble to reequip my Cutter with all the new, cool stuff.  I'd probably be much further out than I am - 8 or 9 thousand light years.  It'll still take me a while to haul back (25 light year jump range).

Still goofing around with Fallout 4, mostly tweaking settlements and my secret underground lair. Combat has become a bit one-sided since I found some seriously broken legendary weapons (two-shot Gauss rifle and wounding minigun to be specific). Sure I don't have to use them, but then there's a certain satisfaction in one-shotting behemoths and queens...

In tabletop news:

Princes of the Apocalypse: My guys have made it to the Howling Caves deep below the Fane of the Eye and are in a race to stop the evil air cult priestess from reaching the node. My Halfling Shadow Monk managed to one-shot a demon thanks to my crit/fumble table rolling "decapitation". Showdown should be next week.

Tomb of Annihilation: We had our session 0 last week, my husband and I decided to play a married noble human couple, one from Chult and one not. My playing a sword and board fighter and hubby is playing a ranger and we plan to play up the whole "English Nobility on Holiday" angle. Hubby is a big game hunter and I'm a knight with a love for "The Art of War" quotes. Her name is Beatrix "Trixie" Caspian Rutherford and my husband's is "Wintrop Q. Rutherford".

Derelict Sky: This is a Cypher system game (Era: The Consortium), my husband is running and we are still trying to figure out the rules. It's been fun so far, we're firefly-esque crew on a mission to investigate a space refinery that, you guessed it, is full of xenomorphs and a cat. The person who hired us knew and has us in a pinch because he is threatening to destroy our ship. My character is a hacker who is desperately trying to save the cat and her crew mates' lives.

I might be able to play some skyrim this weekend, I'm finishing up the Brotherhood and Thieves' Guild quests and then will turn to the main story. Stormcloaks for life!

DrunkenBob: Loving Wasteland 2.  Not too far into it, but they won me over with the quirks and kept me hooked when I learned that choices have consequences, completionists be damned.


Wasteland 2 is excellent.  Beware of relying heavily on snipers though, towards the end of the game, it can make one particular fight very difficult.

I have only been able to play about 2 or 3 hours of the update. What has changed from exploring (at least on the PS4)
-Unexplored / unpopulated systems come up as anarchy instead low security/clean now.
-I saw that there was something to do with salvage in the release notes.  So I stopped and checked the random 'unidentified signal' that pops up.  Data caches are no longer illegal.
-I will stop for more of them.  Maybe with an update, I'll get a random Thargoids encounter? Which would suck way out in deep space.  I probably have about 40 mil in exploration data saved up at this point. I have gotten really good at cool down/activate/boost/re-enter FS from the times I had a few painite from a mining run, though.  So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Wife and all my kids are busy and gone this weekend.  Not busy as in I have to do stuff, but I'm still home.  They are gone gone. I have been working mostly from just before 7am until 10 or 11pm every night this week.  I am taking time for me when I am done with work today.... and hopefully tomorrow.  And stocking up on some libations, because drinkin' and explorin' is so much fun.

/I'd say cue the pietasters, but that is probably a little obscure for most.


I haven't checked, but didn't they change the route plotting limit from 1000Ly to 20000Ly?  That would be a really nice change for exploring.

Carn: WickerNipple: [upload.wikimedia.org image 271x377]

This.  I didn't have a whole lot of time to play last night but I fired up a Mazdamundi campaign.  I love the small improvements like the better end turn button, the bigger main settlements, and the different edicts.  I can't wait to get some of the bigger beasts to fight in my armies.

Last week as prep I finished my Clan Angrund campaign and also played a dwarf VH campaign after with thorgrim just to see how it felt comparatively.  Regular dwarves are so much easier even on VH.  I never even got to use many higher end units beside a couple hammerers.  I might try them some day on legendary.  Once game 3 hits, and hopefully skaven and chaos dwarves are after the mountains also, I think dwarves will be a hell of a bigger challenge.


Started as high elves and already have dragons after just a few hours.  Was surprised to see the HE get them with only a lvl 4 building.

I found Clan Angrund crazy easy.  Nothing you fight early on can deal with four ethereal characters charging right at them.  Hell not much later can either.

Been tooling around with Tropico 5. Never played any of the series. So I guess this answers the old game question.

Hellblade was definitely a worthy purchase. The writing and atmosphere on that game is quite unnerving, but I loved every minute of it. Definitely looking forward to any future endeavors from that company.

Played that on a free weekend.  Waiting for the heavy steam discount then I'll be losing hours a week.  Very fun game.

Destiny 2 for PS4. I am wondering how much content I can get out of the game solo before I need to get Playstation Plus.
 
2017-09-29 10:12:27 AM  

Atomic Jonb: So far Stellaris is a lot of empire micromanaging (exploration and expansion phase on my first run-through) and it seems OK. I like it better than Masters of Orion 3, but it doesn't seem to have the charm of 2, although that's what it most reminds me of.


I like Stellaris, but it takes F O R E V E R. And I feel like everything is going along swimmingly, then some random empire gets pissed and cleans my clock.

I got an SNES Classic at midnight at my local Walmart. Played through the easiest cup of F-Zero and really enjoyed it. Gonna play through Until Dawn for this weekend to kick off my annual mostly horror games only October.
My tabletop group is doing a one off session of Stormbringer on Sunday we are a group of pirates who just found themselves washed up on a beach after getting our ship destroyed.

Don't get your hopes up.  It's explicitly a sequel to the very old classic Bard's Tale trilogy, not the Xbox/PS2/PC-era hack-and-slash game you're thinking of.  It's a very different experience.

I did read something about that. The bit I read said 25k, plus some new features (it'll show you last scoopable star based on your current fuel load, you can have the route plotter factor neutron stars/jumps, etc). Sounds like a great update

GhostfacedFiddlah: Panic!  PANIC!  I'm DMing my first game in decades in a full-day adventure on Sunday.  I'm running a homegrown campaign, and I'm nowhere near ready.  My mind is chock-full of D&D rules, gods and cosmology, not to mention the map, encounters, and characters of the first adventure.   I ... may have overextended myself.

The campaign's heavy on universe-mechanics (a wizard tries to understand the gods scientifically), so I've been cramming like crazy.

I also bought a few minis and I'm really happy with the results.  I've got a beholder (zombie) to scare the shiat out of the PCs, and a glabrezu as the Big Bad.  When the party first sees it, it's battling a halfling, with both of them locked in stasis.  The scale of the models is exactly what I wanted, with the glabrezu towering over the halfling, almost 3x the height.

2 more days and still so much prep to do.  Wish me luck.


Step one: Breathe!
Step two: Get a rough outline of where you want the part to good with hooks and the like, but have a few back up options as well.
Step three: You don't have to be perfect, all DMs make mistakes and forget rules occasionally, just be fair.
Step four: Don't be afraid to steal, modify some AL and DMs Guild modules for your campaign, especially in the beginning.

If you need mooks for regular encounters, check out Rich Burlew's "Monster for every season"

Paper cutouts that you fold to stand up. Some nice art on them, and it will make the actual minis stand out even more.

Also Order of the Stick is a fantastic (if slow to update) D&D webcomic

Flashfyr3: Wife texted me this morning to let me know she was able to get an SNES classic at Target, so instead of airbrush priming and base coating my space marine army I've been assembling I'm going to try that out this weekend.


Which Space Marine chapter? Back when I played 40K, I had a Salamanders army (started them in 3rd Edition under Codex: Armageddon, so was upset that they got a reputation as cheesemongers in 4th/5th edition). I've been out since 6th Edition, so I live vicariously through the Horus Heresy novels and other people still playing. I've had a ridiculous number of armies

2nd Edition
Blood Angels (they came in the boxed set)
Orks - Bad Moonz, specifically
Genestealer Cult
Tyranids

3rd Edition
Salamanders
Craftworld Eldar
Thousand Sons
Tau

Kept the Tau & Salamanders through to 6th edition

4th Edition
Imperial Guard

5th & 6th was mostly just expanding the 3rd & 4th edition ones, but I think I also added a Black Legion army and maybe some Evil Sunz Orks. Sold out midway through 6th.

McGrits: I just started Divinity: OS2. I picked the dwarf (beast) as a cleric. I am only on the second level of the opening ship. Hopefully I won't have to restart too many times from stupid character build decisions.


Muddle through Act I (the first island), and the ship becomes your home base, and includes a magic mirror you can use for free to reshuffle your character points.
That said, I only used it once - started with the undead guy, Fane, and got Pet Pal so I could talk to animals... and then picked up Sebille, the elf, who can talk to animals. Reshuffled that point. But other than that, there's enough latitude in the builds that the points don't really matter so much.

My wife and I are now on the second island, so will not give spoilers. But for a tip - if you stealth and pickpocket people, when they notice they've been robbed, they'll demand to search you. You can try to talk them out of it or bribe them, or, if you only steal skill books, you can quickly learn them before they demand to search. When they do search, you've got nothing stolen on you, so they grudgingly let you go. And skill books can be some of the most expensive and most useful items, so it's well worth it.

Other tip - having different characters focus on different spell types is obvious and makes sense. You've got the pyro guy, the warfare guy, the necromancer, etc. However, polymorph is a jack-of-all-traits skill, and it may be worthwhile to have everyone pick up a point or two in it. For example, your tank can grow bull horns and charge in to combat; your ranged attacker can grow wings and fly up to high ground or fly away from melee; your stealth guy can turn invisible, etc.

leeto2: I've been playing Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6 Seige... It's a hoot to play with my wife and kids.  For lighter fare we've been playing Path of Exile.  Pretty much a diablo replacement MMO.  Free to play, and you get a lot of fun without spending on useless upgrades.


My dad saw me playing Path of Exile one day.  As far as I can tell, that might have been one of the worst moments in human history, because it got him hooked.

But he doesn't know how to play.  And he refuses to learn.  He doesn't read the wiki, he doesn't even read the help files.  He just asks me a question every other day (usually a repeat of some question from the week before).  The only reason he does anything on the passive tree is because that plus sign pops up on the screen when he levels.

The man has - GOD ONLY KNOWS HOW - made it to level sixty using only a two button mouse.  I tried to teach him how to use the keyboard for flasks and skills or even just for faster selling of items, but he won't have it.

Wow this thread fills up fast.

So I've been doing three things. Firstly, I got a Yoke and Throttle Quadrant for use with FSX:SE and Have been loving every second of it, flying with a yoke is a whole lot different than a joystick. Been sticking with the general aviation stuff for now till I get used to it.

Secondly:

MOUNTS!

The Path of Fire expansion has been a kick in the pants so far. Turns out if you mobilize an entire continent and kill two Elder Dragons on your own, it pisses off the God of War. Who knew? Certainly not my Sylvari (on the red raptor, next to the gigantic Nord) but eh, I'm a Guardian, fire doesn't bother me too much.

Subtle griefing is the best griefing, because there's bad people, on both, on both sides.  Very bad people.


Christ, I did not mean to imply that you intentionally did that.  I was trying to imply that I would deliberately do what you accidentally did.

I'm a big jerk, but there's nothing wrong with that, as long as you ask your followers to Like and Subscribe.

palelizard: Does anyone remember the game which used to advertise in Dragon magazine with art of a graffiti wall/alley saying "Always outnumbered, never outgunned"? There may have been a dead person on the ground kinda Borderlands looking and I think the game was cyberpunk-y/dystopian future. I cannot remember the name.


The Prodigy album of that same name had a graffiti cover back in the day. Maybe it was an ad for that next to an ad for a game?

/I honestly just Googled this for the last 20 minutes to help solve your mystery!
//That name seems to be all Prodigy or military patches

LOL, I didn't take it that way.  We typically do a "Squad" terrorist hunt with the other maps mixed in.  We don't feel like we're good enough to play with other folks online, and we don't really want to deal with griefing BS.  Besides, my wife gets lost in the map frequently,  we have a tendency to accidentally shoot each other, usually by running into a teammates line of fire..so we'd rather play against the AI.  That's challenging enough. :)

Wow, no love for Heat Signature in this thread? That's what me and all my friends are currently obsessed with.

Last Man on Earth: ox45tallboy: Lothar IB: ox45tallboy: Why has no one released a sequel to The Bard's Tale remake?

inXile is currently making Bards Tale 4. They made Wastelands 2, Torment and are working on Wasteland 3 so they are a bit busy. I think I recall them saying they wanted to revisit the Bards Tale remake in one of the kickstarter videos they did they. I wouldn't think it would happen anytime soon.


I'm playing Divinity Original Sin 2. Pretty awesome turn based combat RPG. Multiple ways to accomplish goals and the environmental effects in combat are great. Something other RPGs should incorporate imo.

They had better get Cary Elwes and a good writer or six, or I shall be forced to sulk for at least a week. Play it like the last one with a occasional 4th wall break and a sarcastic take on RPG tropes, and I shall be a happy camper.

Don't get your hopes up.  It's explicitly a sequel to the very old classic Bard's Tale trilogy, not the Xbox/PS2/PC-era hack-and-slash game you're thinking of.  It's a very different experience.


Okay, so I'm not going to be donating.

I do remember enjoying the original Bard's Tale on an XT clone with an 8087 processor, 640k RAM, and dual 5 /14 floppies on an amber monochrome monitor running a CGA emulator.

Playing through FFXV more.  Finally hit the point where we get on a boat.  I'm not sure why everyone vehemently hates the game besides not being Versus and the constant fan input/polls.

McGrits: Divinity


Get Pet Pal as soon as you can, Me and my wife restarted the game when we realized that pet pal counted for way more than talking to rats, cats and dogs. We'd straight up murdered a bunch of stuff because we couldn't understand them.

Aar1012: I'm currently sitting outside Target to get a SNES Classic. It's 4:35 AM.


Never heard of emulators eh?

Divinity Original Sin 2 looks like a Balder's Gate style game. I've been wanting to play one of those for a long time. Just got to get a job first.

Smoking GNU: Slaxl: C&C Tiberium Wars! Take that you filthy Nod bastards!

I can't believe it's 10 years old. Well, I can when I look at the graphics, but besides that, I can't believe it.

Me, i'm playing Tiberium Sun. It's 17 years old and i'm still having a blast. Which answers both questions in the headline.


I play generals zero hour, which lacks the gdi nod stuff but is the best most balanced overall game of the series.
