Sin and Half-Life. Been missing the old school shooters... Yeah yeah, Doom, Duke and I have an understanding. So don't bother.

Wish Sin had a remastered version...

I miss the CD-ROM, FMV based adventure games of the mid '90s. There are a few video based games today but they're not the same. The old games at their best filled the disc with backstories and atmosphere conveyed through interactive text, audio, video, mini-games and animation. Little or none of that was actually needed to complete the game. They were there to add to the story and build the world. To give the player something to explore and enjoy.

Total Distortion was probably the best of the lot in regards to that. You can spend hours in the tower before starting the game proper playing with the video editor, listening to the radio, making sandwiches and drinks and reading through a few dozen different books with interactive elements and games inside. There were so many ideas packed in there, it was glorious.

Total Distortion GREAT BIG DEMO

Sorry to say, I didn't have the chance to play it. Kinda reminds me of Metalocalypse, just a little more stable..
I'd give my brothers left nut for a Dethklok game.. Or a body off the street, whatever...

Making my way through the Bioshock series again, just for the hell of it. I'm nearly done with 1.

I'm also starting a new run of Fallout 3 because I only got to the end once (Which I barely remember) and never did any of the DLC.

I'd really like to see another Crazy Taxi game that stuck to the mechanics of the first one.

CT2 and 3 were terrible representations that showed how sometimes more is less.

I'm currently exploring 4 Beta Trianguli. Some lucrative planets in this system.

Still playing E:D. Is there a Farker wing?
 
2018-08-10 06:21:25 AM  
I miss the RTS like Command and Conquer.

Slaxl: Still playing E:D. Is there a Farker wing?


Not to my knowledge but there's plenty of us that play it.  I've been on a break from it for a few months now, just logging in once a month to qualify for powerplay toys, switching allegiance and waiting some more.  I'm sure I'll be back out there soon enough-ish.

I can't really think of an genres there are to miss, so many of my older favorites (isometric turn based rpgs for one) have had really strong re-awakenings the last few years.

Been on a MLB 18 binge lately.  Really have been hammering out a RTTS career as a pitcher.  Thinking about grabbing madden 19.  Usually like to grab an edition every other year or so to check it out.

One of my favorite genres that isn't around much anymore would be on-the-rail shooters like house of the dead or time crisis.  Outside a few arcades they just don't make them for consoles/PC anymore.  Use to have a blast playing those types of games.
 
2018-08-10 08:08:00 AM  
I've been playing a lot of No Man's Sky. It's gotten a lot better since the update.  That said, if you didn't like it before the update, I don't think this will change your mind.
 
2018-08-10 08:10:55 AM  
I was playing a lot of No Mans Sky, but I couldn't hire a damn overseer. Guy wasn't there. So I got frustrated and went back to Shadow of War.

Asphalt 9: Legends has been getting all my love this week. Finally maxed out my Camaro and snagged the Porsche 911 last night. Hopefully I can get myself into the Gold multiplayer tier.
 
2018-08-10 09:08:36 AM  
Banging away on my NG+ run through Persona 5, mostly just trying to see the companions that I didn't max during the first run (Sojiro/Fortune Teller/Politician/Gun Kid/Yusuke the rapist/Haru)

Having trouble getting the persona to try and improve the twins, probably a guide out there for what to do.

I am missing the arcade dogfighters like X-wing/TIE Fighter. There is a new Ace Combat announced, supposedly out this year, but it's been going downhill since Zero. 6 was meh, Assault Horizon was trash. The trailer for 7 DOES have the most hilarious opening voice line though.
 
2018-08-10 09:10:34 AM  
Picked up Monster Hunter World for the PC yesterday....

So, yeah...see you all in a month or so.
 
2018-08-10 09:11:08 AM  
Not quite as much gaming lately on my end, mostly SWTOR, but my fervor to play some of the stories again has died down a bit. I need to play Iconoclasts soon though, been meaning to.

I think I mostly miss turn-based strategy games like Final Fantasy tactics. Oh there are still a few franchises going at it like Super Robot Wars and Disgaea. the former is always a blast, but the latter is feeling more stagnant lately.
 
2018-08-10 09:12:02 AM  
I have been continuing through Final Fantasy IX. I had not realized how long ago I last played it, as many of the areas through which I am traveling are not very familiar to me. I have always regarded it as my favorite Final Fantasy due to the moments that I do remember and yet I have forgotten so much. That said, I can only attribute my lack of recollection to a faulty memory and not to the game itself being forgettable because I have yet to reevaluate my feelings for the title.

I have also, when I want something a little less wordy, been playing the Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap remake. I love the Metroidvania genre and WBIII is one of the well-regarded classics that I had never played before. I have been very impressed with the work that the developers put in to make the game look modern while not changing in any way the actual gameplay. I occasionally switch back and forth between the remake and "retro" graphics and sound just to marvel at the level of detail that the creators put into formerly visually limited 8-bit levels.

I played a bit of Elite Dangerous last night. A friend of a friend roped another person into the game and we were getting set up to help him start out. We did not quite get anything accomplished apart from meeting up at the same station but when we next wing up we will have options of wing delivery missions or bounty hunting in a HazRez site, either of which will earn the newbie (and the rest of us) a few million.

Also, while chatting online with one friend while waiting to see if another would be joining us for a scheduled online meetup -- his father had died and we were not certain if he would be too busy to play, not in a mood to play or in a mood to play just to get away from life for a bit -- I loaded up Fallout 4 and I did a bit of work in Warwick Homestead:


img.fark.netView Full Size


It is still a work-in-progress, but it is definitely my tallest structure. It features a general store, a clinic and one apartment on the first floor and then each subsequent floors except the highest have two apartments. Working out the floor plan for each apartment was rather complicated and troublesome, because I wanted the two apartments on each floor to have the same amount of floor space for each room (living area, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) and I have certain minimum size requirements for each type of room. Fortunately, once I got the floor plan for the second floor figured out I was able to just duplicate it for each higher level. The final floor is an unfinished open attic area that I may furnish later, once I decide whether I want it to be a common meeting/exercise room or sort of a penthouse suite.

I also need to figure out how to get wiring all the way up to the top. I may have to build scaffolding, or alternatively look into some of the power connector types that I use less frequently.

I am also not entirely sure what to do with the rest of the space. With the Settlements Expanded mod I have a lot of working area in Warwick Homestead but quite a bit of that is existing structures that, while I can destroy with Scrap Everything, will cause problems if removed or just a lot of water. I have considered the feasibility of building over the water, though I am also considering just laying out a farkload of water purifiers and turning the place into a bottled water plant.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before, but I like pirate games, so I gave it a go. It's really fun.

I may have to play some of the other AC titles. I'll miss the ship battles though.
 
2018-08-10 09:17:52 AM  
Downloaded Monster Hunter World last night, made a character and then realized they looked way too goofy. Rebuilding tonight.

But more FFXIV, La-Mulana 2 and MTGArena as well.
 
2018-08-10 09:19:48 AM  
Forgot to mention, also started Dead Cells.  It seems fun so far, but saving it for a flight.
 
2018-08-10 09:20:42 AM  
What have you been playing?

New God of War is pretty cool.  I like the part where Kratos has become the target audience, he has mellowed out and grown up and had kids, as he brutally murders mother for burning my Hot Pockets.

Makes you wonder how they're going to handle the next God of War.  Maybe they'll have a scene where Kratos is fearful and anxious that automation is going to put him out of a job.  Maybe I'll press R3 and that's when I commit righteous violence against the Deep State.

Well, the game doesn't CALL it the Deep State, and they definitely don't call him Bernie Sanders, but you can tell it's him.

I love this game but I see no point to the multiplayer if you don't have friends.
I've been flying around lonely planet after lonely planet just looking for someone, anyone at all..
which really adds to the eerie sci fi feel of the game.
 
2018-08-10 09:23:29 AM  
I'm currently looking for something to hop in to.  I did try out Antihero last night. Seems like a fun video board game, but the difficulty spike in the tutorial was kind of brutal.  Not sure I'm going to go back to it or not either, since it seems like once the tutorial/campaign is done, there's not much replay value unless you're going online with multiple people.

Tonight will be yet another one of those nights were I'll stare at my games for an hour, trying to figure out what to play and end up playing something short because I can't decide what I feel like playing.

Have you tried joining someone else's game, a non friend?  It'll drop you in and you can usually warp to their system.

Been playing Dynasty Warriors 9 of all things to grind out Red Hare.  Not sure why.  May dive back into FO4 this weekend.

I can't think of a genre I'm really missing.  Maybe the Quest for Glory style adventure RPG, but I imagine they would feel a bit too rudimentary these days.
 
2018-08-10 09:25:06 AM  
This past week, I once again succumbed to the grind that is World of Tanksand did a whole bunch of random battles in my still seemingly-futile quest to get the crew of my trusty Matilda (Tier IV UK Medium Tank) up to 100%. They're all around 93% right now, thanks to an anniversary event giving a 4 * crew XP bonus to the first win of the day, and me completing a couple of the Battle of Kursk missions that gave me crew XP boost personal reserves.

Beyond that it's been mostly raiding in Pokemon GO! (I still need another 20ish Magikarp candy in the Mew quest line)

As for genres that don't seem to get that much love anymore, I miss the LucasArts/Sierra style point-and-click adventure games. I know they're starting to get a bit of a revivial with some indie game Kickstarters, and it feels like the TellTale games are spiritual successors, but there hasn't been a new game that gives me the same feel as The Secret Of Monkey Island, Leisure Suit Larry or Indiana Jones & The Fate OF Atlantis did.
 
2018-08-10 09:25:06 AM  
As for game genres that I love that no longer get any love? That is a difficult question. My favorite genre is Metroidvania and that has been getting more love now than ever. I also have a fondness for classic point-and-click adventure games and while those are no longer the dominant computer game type today a number of small independent developers are still putting them out.

I also loved the old Infinity Engine games, but Obsidian already took care of reviving that genre -- I just recently learned of the upcoming Pathfinder: Kingmaker game (which looks to be using an IE-inspired engine also).

More action-based first-person shooters like old-school DOOM? We had DOOM 2016 and an upcoming sequel.

Platformers like Mega Man? Mega Man 11 is coming soon.

Thus, I can really think of only one subgenre that has not really been revived today, and I really cannot say whether it should be revived:

I just cashed in 20m from my afternoon's exploring. That's the most I've ever had. Torn between doing some more, or trying to master fighting. I keep picking fights with bigger people and coming in second place. Or passenger stuff. I hear that's lucrative.
 
2018-08-10 09:28:39 AM  
More Bomber Crew. I've got alternates (as in at least 2 crew trained to do the same thing) AND parachutes for everyone.

Total War Warhammer 2. Dwarves, allies with Tomb Kings? More likely than you think.

Picked up again on Sniper Elite 4. Mosin Nagant, STG44 (they call it MG 42 or something) and Welrod. It's still a little grindy. Shoot Nazi, hide.

/ interested in Strange Brigade, coming out this month
 
2018-08-10 09:30:46 AM  
I kind of miss sandbox builders.

SimCity and SimCity 2000 (every after was crap), Rollercoaster Tycoon, AeroBiz, etc. I played the hell out of those. Digital Legos.
 
2018-08-10 09:32:57 AM  
Finally done with Skyrim SE.Done all the official DLC plus a bunch of the better mods.  My character's an absurd killing machine- the final boss of the final DLC (Miraak) was a cakewalk and there are very few monsters I can't one shot from stealth. But my proudest achievement is below.  Hearthfire lets you build your own house and put on the rooms you want, so I added a library.  The library comes with a lot of bookshelves but no books.

This is unacceptable.

You may ask yourself, "Why, Mr. Hero, would you spend time in a virtual world picking up hundreds of books and carting them back to a virtual house to fill up a library that doesn't really exist?"   I will channel my inner Sir Edmund Hillary and answer "Why the fark not?"   Eat your heart out Urag.

Picked up the new Endless Legend expansion.  Haven't had a chance to play it yet but excited to try it out.

I miss MUDs.  The one I'd like to revisit most is premium and I can't justify the time or money anyway.  Looks like it may have been infested by f2p microtransactions on top of sub as well.

I'm starting to get back into MtG (EDH specifically) thanks to some coworkers, but I've mostly been playing online via xmage so it's less of a money sink.

HOLY shiat, IS THAT BUCK ROGERS?  I didn't think anyone played that!

Anyway, after 240 hours, even I have taken a break from Battletech.  I played Fallout 4 this week, enjoying the scenery update mods that I added (nudge-nudge, wink-wink) and grinding out companion perks while working on settlments.  I'm almost to the point where I am going to Fah Hahbah, but I want to finish Valentine's personal quest and recruit Curie for the trip.
 
2018-08-10 09:41:22 AM  
Hex-grid based fire and movement combined arms turned based tacticals, like Panzer General and Allied General.

Sure, there's freeware like Battle for Wesnoth and MegaMekn (and Civ V sorta), but the old SSI games delivered the grognard goods.

I was able to get Fantasy General to run under DOSBox, but none of the others.

If money is what you want there are a lot of decent options for getting it which aren't always readily apparent - humble data deliveries for example can make lots of money in the right systems when you're allied with them and they're in a boom state.  20m-50m an hour is the typical goal for "good money".  Passenger missions can certainly get you there.  So can the right tourism missions.  Combat never will.

The trouble with making money your priority is there will come a day when you have everything and it all seems for nothing, Elite is a much better game if you approach it as an experience than as goal oriented thing.

Pretty sure when I come back I'm gonna join the fuel rats.

I used to play exclusively in solo and private groups, then I realized that the game is so vast -- even in occupied space -- that my likelihood of encountering a hostile player is extremely small. Now, unless winging up with friends, I play in Open.

So much goddamn No Man's Sky holy shiat. I haven't even completed the first Warp Jump mission; I've just been mapping my starting system and checking shiat out. Found some downed ships, hunting down a shiatload of Korvax language nodes. Haven't done much basebuilding so much as I use the base computers to plot out points of interest on a planet; Generally I just hunt down the nearest Trading Outpost (the single landing pad version) and camp out there on the landing pad since pad launches/landings are resource free, and they have a galactic trading terminal to sell things from. Bought a copy for my brother and they handed him a Freighter almost immediately. He immediately jumped to my system since my planets are mostly chill (two barren, a few with basic full-time hazards, one that is actually temperate/hazardless during the day.) Died only once so far; pissed off the spacecops accidentally and fudged a jetpack jump while escaping. I thought I'd be more upset about losing my stuff but I died in some ancient ruins and immediately dug up an artifact worth half a million upon respawn, so that was a nice consolation.

I really need to stop farking around and get on with more story so I have more functionality/tech tree shiat.
 
2018-08-10 09:51:31 AM  
I miss the old school action rpgs like King's Quest 1-6, Return to Zork, etc and also the puzzlers like Mist and Riven and so on.  There have been a few gems like The Room and The Talos Principle, but I wish people would make more of them.

Speaking of puzzle games I played through Portal and Portal 2 again for fun.  At least the third time I think and still great games.  Other than that not much doing on the computer games front.  Still playing the occasional round of Vasebreaker Endless on Plants vs Zombies.

Still waiting for my Warmahordes mystery boxes to get here.  It says my order is still processing. Someone in our gaming group chat has contacts with warehouses and let us in on a sale so I kinda ordered a ton of additional stuff cuz it was 50-75% off.  Got my wife a bunch more circle stuff and I got a bunch of Skorne and a protectorate Judicator just cuz I like it.

Might get some time for Witcher 3 tonight, but I'm away all weekend (fark Unite the Right 2) - thanks for the Gwent help a few weeks back, y'all (finally won my first matches!).

1. Does anyone know how to make money? I seem to be stuck around 200-300, and no amount of killing/looting stuff to sell to the junkers seems to get me anywhere (maybe because there are so many maintenance/crafting costs?). I know there's usually an inflection point somewhere in these kinds of games (10-20% through seems to be about right), but is there something I've missed? Do I just need to start completing missions?

2. Speaking of, why are all the missions recommended at a level several above where I am? I'm still pretty early, and I had to grind a bit to level 6 before I could take the second or third overall mission (and many of them are level 15-20 or higher. One is level 33, I think, but that might be for an expansion). Is there a good spot/way to grind?

3. Speaking of grinding/leveling, is there a specific build I should go for? I know I've been handicapping myself because I'm not really a fan of my weak magic, and the crossbow mechanic sucks a bunch (TANK4LYFE, yo). Right now, I've pumped quick attack to level 3 or 4, got the +50 Vitality bonus, got the food buff (Vitality recharges for 20 minutes, not 20 seconds), and the crossbow-aiming-slows-time one. Are there bonuses I should be looking out for?

// also, at level 6, I was sent to fight the werewolf (level 9 or 10 IIRC) - it recharges health about as quickly as I can deplete it, so I have no idea how to kill it
// will I just need to wait until I level that high? (seems like a stupid thing to suggest character level 6 for this mission, then...)

I was going to play Battletech and probably still will, but Steel Ocean has drawn me back in.

Occasionally dipping my toes into the Inside/Limbo double pack. I love the atmosphere.

In last week's session of the Harry Potter game, we had a new PC join the party. She's a member of a magical society that includes David Bowie and Elton John. Alanis Morrisette joined the team, after first grilling the younger wizards on why they A) dropped a blue whale on Cardiff and B) let a troll roam free in the London Underground.

There was even a scene in this session where Alanis Morrisette climbed the outside of the Oblivion coaster at Alton Towers to reclaim a chunk of Excalibur, and that doesn't even rank in the top ten for weird moments in this campaign.

Anyone have a suggestion for PS3 games with some kind of online multiplayer?
My best friend just got a PS3. I own one too, but I've never played a game on mine. We played RPGs and occasionally Unreal Tournament or Mortal Kombat (on PC) when she lived with me.

Carn: I miss the old school action rpgs like King's Quest 1-6, Return to Zork, etc and also the puzzlers like Mist and Riven and so on.  There have been a few gems like The Room and The Talos Principle, but I wish people would make more of them.

Speaking of puzzle games I played through Portal and Portal 2 again for fun.  At least the third time I think and still great games.  Other than that not much doing on the computer games front.  Still playing the occasional round of Vasebreaker Endless on Plants vs Zombies.

Still waiting for my Warmahordes mystery boxes to get here.  It says my order is still processing. Someone in our gaming group chat has contacts with warehouses and let us in on a sale so I kinda ordered a ton of additional stuff cuz it was 50-75% off.  Got my wife a bunch more circle stuff and I got a bunch of Skorne and a protectorate Judicator just cuz I like it.
