Kyrandia was westwood studios, but I know what you mean :)
With the sierra games, the Quest series never really grabbed me but I am thinking I should give some of the later ones a go.

I am still playing Elite Dangerous, closing to be triple Elite. Once done with that, probably will just use one exploration ship and join expedition to circle galaxy that will last most likely around 6 months.


Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out on dosbox or my PPC mac.


I never got around to playing any of the elite series, but did spend a looot of time with the escape velocity games on the mac.

I've been on an assassin's creed kick lately - AC: Unity, AC: Origins, and now AC IV: Black Flag. All very enjoyable though the latest ones, including Origins and Odyssey are dumbed down somewhat compared to earlier entries in the series, but Origins is the most visually breath-taking game I ever played and exploring inside darkened Egyptian pyramids and the tombs of dead kings based on real ones was a blast.

I've been meaning to give the AC games another go but Assassin's Creed 3 really did a number on me. How to lose a fan in one game.

Nobby_UK 25 August 2019 20:37

Yay, finally have a machine that can handle
(STEAM :( and) SKYRIM @ Max Settings :D

Anubis 27 August 2019 13:26

Gratz!

Surviving Mars is fun game. Playing first game where i learn how and what to do. Still no rain or green areas on mars, but getting there :D

Start playing Darkseed again.

I'm currently getting right into Fuze 4 Nintendo Switch which is a basic programming language for the switch and is a lot of fun. Just playing around with sprites the other night and I ended up with something that isn't far off an Asteroids type game just from experimenting!

It's not out until tomorrow but I donated during the marketing campaign so got my download code early.

And yes, I suppose I should disclose that I'm involved with the project but only from a community point of view, I'm not an employee or anything!

Played a bit of FallOut 3
Was following a Caravan and somehow lost (A slow Brahmin) them !!!

Now in a Town with Suspicious people - I think them Cannibals

Well... you're not wrong.

When not playing Amiga or C64 games I play Pokémon TCGO or just from recently, Steambirds Alliance. It’s a shootemup MMOG for those who don’t know. I’m not sure it will catch me long-term but so far it’s fun

Yup, found the evidence --- was attacked, had to kill them all :D
Then found the Bro's of Steel HQ whilst looking for a Radio Signal ---
then followed the river and found a Paddle Steamer to 'Point Lookout'

Playing Oblivion Today:
Killed some Goblins attacking a Farm
Found a Book for The Mages Guild
and now investigating the theft of a Painting

Installed Assassins Creed ---
but can't get my head around the control's

Yesterday being Australian Fathers day, my presents from my boys were GOG games :D
Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3.
Xwing
Battle Chess.
Carmageddon Max Pack.

So what am I playing?

Yesterday we had a family network game of Carmageddon :D

After the kids got bored, it was the wife who insisted we play another round LOL.

She used to love this game as much as me. It's her who broke the steering wheel joystick we had for it back in the day.

And then I tried to achieve fools mate against Battlechess without success lol.

Nobby_UK 02 September 2019 20:13

Played Skyrim for (6-7) hours...
(Good looking game but not as good as Morrowind) ;)
until it decided to crash to desktop

gimbal 03 September 2019 11:17

It's still a Bethesda game ;) Although I must say that without mods both Skyrim and Fallout 4 never really crashed on me.

What are you playing with - mouse/keyboard or controller? I never had any issues with that game control, but my biggest issue was disappointing ending in game. :nervous

Running different mysteries in Surviving Mars. Quite interesting game, but getting DLCs for 100% completion is just out of question, just like with rest of Paradox games.

Mouse + Keyboard...
My Nephew says I need an Analogue Controller
I have an old Venom Pad from my old PS3 + Twin USB adapter
Going to try that later...


Bought (39p) 'STRIFE Veteran Edition' on Steam
It plays a bit quick/slippery - lol


Oblivion last night --- enjoying it
Although some quests prob... need higher SpeechCraft/Disposition
IE the Stolen Painting + 'Fine Mad' Guard Captain.


Not fair to blame me for the death of Rienna - She ran into a Trap.

Anubis 04 September 2019 13:38

Best to use on PC is xbox 360 or xbox one controller.

Nobby_UK 04 September 2019 20:10

Well it worked and I made it through the tutorial ---
Then it asked me to jump - that was not in the toot
I am not liking this game :(

Met a Ghoul @ Point Lookout that wanted 1000 caps
to enter an Arena to fight Feral Ghouls :shocked
Why would I pay to do that ?

# SKYRIM
The merchant Belethor has been killed during a Vampire attack :(
The NET says he will eventually be replaced by Ysolda ---
but I have a **** load of stuff I want to sell -
guess I'll go to Riverwood :)

Neither have been Modded --- Yet ! ;)

6 hours of Oblivion --- then it Crashed to Desktop

No prob... it did an Auto Save just B4
Not finding it as enjoyable as Morrowind or Skyrim

gimbal 06 September 2019 23:13

It took me a while to get into it but now I'm hooked on Civ 6. Once you get into the district mindset and let go of the Civ 5 way to play the game really shines as the best of the series so far. My head hurts because of all the late game options that you have...
