It's about those special moments where someone on the other team shoots the hostage for no reason whatsoever.

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.

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.

Apartment management kicked us out for the weekend to recoat the bathtub. I've had a few thargoid encounters, but haven't been taken out. I think I'm on to something with tactics to fight them. I heard SDC took one out already. That checks out: they're canonically damaged by toxic waste.

Why has no one released a sequel to The Bard's Tale remake? There are plenty of writers looking for work., and Carey Elwes could use the money. Negotiate for the rights, hire a modeler and and a landscape artist for a couple of months to start, then then make sure Elwes is on board, choose an off-the shelf engine, then shop it to a publisher. Shouldn't take more than a year of development if you can hire the right programmers and artists. Then 6 months or so for tweaking, new dialogue etc., and another 6 months of beta testing.

I think in 2 years you could double your money on $80-100 mil, as long as you didn't get too ambitious and instead focused on story, then dialogue, then voice acting between characters, and ignored the stupid 100% thing where ou have to find some robin's egg high up in a tree that you can only get to using a teleport spell at exactly the right spot.

Aim for 40-60 hours off gameplay instead of 200+ by putting in senseless fetch quests all the way across the map. And if you do, do it sarcastically, with him biatching about the whole way. That game was brilliantly written and Elwes made it happen with his snark.

Md37: Still playing Overwatch.  I have a lot of fun with mystery heroes.  But when I play deathmatch, I get a lot of grief for using Torb, and then wipe the floor with everyone.

Also playing Rimworld.  Beat the game with the astronauts, so decided to go with the 5 cave men at the start.  Only problem with that, is that any research that I do takes incredibly long times, since they are cave men, and are stupid.  Even though they have discovered electricity and solar panels.  Oh well.


It's hard to get anywhere when Og keeps handing Ug regular rock when Ug asked for Phillips.

I'm playing Fallout 4 again, but with the Sim Settlements mod and a bunch of its add-ons. It turns settlement-building into a post-apocalyptic shantytown version of SimCity. It's a lot of fun, but there's still a mediocre RPG getting in the way of my city-building.

You need to play Friday the 13th then.  Nothing's more aggravating than a character with bad repair "helping" by trying to fix the car and alerting Jason due to all the fark ups they make or wandering aimlessly with key items like the phone fuse or the car keys, then dying far away from where people would find your ragdoll.

Plus, if they ever fix Chad's luck, a good Chad can troll Jason for most of the round.  Even a mediocre one like me can stall him for a few minutes most of the time.

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.
