Speaking of Morrowind, Youtube shoved this interesting video about OpenMW my way. It looks pretty playable!

Strange that they did not recommend it to me ---
I have several (was 5 but 2 give up) Elder Scrolls Players
in my Subs list...

Any way - I grabbed it and will give it a go.


PS Viking now up to Level 25 (Head of Fighter + Mages) --- considering Re-enabling the Dark Bros

#UPDATE#
Does not work = "Not a Valid Win32 application"

I haven't played it for few years, and just checked it - I quite like latest patch, and there should be new update at the end of this month.

They changed exploration and mining. With first one for about an hour made bit over 3M credits and unlocked one of engineers, while with second one I make 15-20 mil per run. (still practicing to get correct amount of explosive to detonate asteroid - too little or too much is not good. also takes me about hour-two for run at the moment, as I just upgraded ship for mining)

Playing a bit of CS:GO (it's still the most honest cheat-free game on the Internet), and I'm looking forward to trying World of Warcraft Classic when it comes out.

Would really like to try it again but it just keeps crashing on my machine. Got some great memories from back in the day of landing in Seyda Neen (?) and exploring the buildings and surroundings really great game.

I've been playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 a lot lately.

First, I drove from south to north with a new driver and a lot of stops (Palermo to Bergen) and headed to Britain afterwards to start a west-east crossing of the continent (Plymouth to Lublin). I don't have the "Beyond the Baltic Sea" addon, so it will stop here.

I have a love/hate relationship with ETS2. I kind of enjoy cruising and doing basic driving tricks (parking a trailer backwards in a cramped space, now there's a challenge).

But the financial aspects of the game are just so underdeveloped, it's hard to really have fun with it more than the cruising aspect and trying to haul cargo over long distances without causing damage or breaking traffic rules. Traffic rules is another one of those things, so underdeveloped. If only signalling actually had any kind of affect on the traffic around you, but often times you really just have to block a road before other cars allow you to pass.

... okay so that's kind of realistic.

The gameplay in the enhanced edition is a lot smoother, it really elevated the game from being a slog to being quite a lot of fun.

But it doesn't do enough, I agree there. It really needed some difficulty enhancements, I took one character to the second playthrough (let's call it newgame+) and I could finish it with one hand tied behind my back, I was overpowered from start to finish. And that was without doing any of the DLC content in the first playthrough so it was just how I leveled in the vanilla story mission.

What do you mean, off the ground? Start in orbital base.

Seriously, just follow training missions (from main menu) and soon enough you will get there. If CMDR Exigeous' 77 year old mom can run it, everyone should be able to do it.

The first I noticed is easier play (or maybe I know game too much). Some guns that I had in GOTY I never received in GOTY enchanted (Maybe I had bad luck). Plays naturally a smother but since it's premiere I upgraded hardware a lot so hard to compare.

Blood: Fresh Supply. If you liked Monolith's Blood back in the day, you'll want to get this. Its just a convenient complete package containing all the official content, nicely re-built by Night Dive Studios for modern systems with full coop play support included. Still as unforgiving as ever too, so the second difficulty level is too easy and the third difficulty level already eats you alive But that's Blood.
