What are you playing right now?


Recommended Posts

I can understand wanting to type a little less letters in text, but what is the obsession with initial abbreviations overall. Always makes me think of Robin Williams line in Good Morning Vietnam making fun of such. It gets a bit ridiculous after a while. :D

 

Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn't we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? 'Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we'd all be put out in K.P.

There was a space station in warcraft 2 ?

 

Wing Commander 2.    

 

 

Hey, SO2 lets you blow up space stations *with nuclear missiles*.

 

Thought the torpedoes I used were nuclear! Forgot I had the expansions actually, will be good to kill Jazz..eventually.

 

 

Well that's what you get for asking Maniac what he'd like to see in a new fighter model. Of course it ends up carrying a dumbfire nuke. Torpedoes were just phase shield piercing missiles, according to the manual.

 

I think Wing Commander 2 was the first game I've played where the storytelling affected me emotionally. I was sad when Spirit died and I really hated Jazz. With a passion.

AC is both a game series with jumping off rooftops and silly genetic memory and a technology to keep yourself cool in summer.

...And my first thought was armor class.

 

 

I got distracted while writing and forgot to type that one. You don't know how long I was staring at that post trying to figure out what I was doing.

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Wasn't the first game to get an emotional response from my (that would be a party wipe in the first Wizardry in the level 5 (?) repeating maze, 6 year old me was devastated) but yeah, I loathed Jazz. Indeed, despite there being better written villains he may still be the villain I've actively disliked the most in videogames. WC 2-4 were very well written, and even Prophecy had decent writing despite its problems.

Shame I never played it when it was current, I was mostly into X-Wing and TIE Fighter so not many characters. Oddly I don't ever recall seeing it in stores when I used to browse for PC games I couldn't afford or run, but I did borrow WC1 from a class mate and found the manual pretty damn cool.

 

I guess I might as well plod on with Wing Commander for now, after 2 I have to knock off 3 (which I also tried playing with a mouse and keyboard...I am full of unwise decisions) then 4.

I came into it late - and indeed into PC gaming fairly late since we only had a 286 with EGA graphics until around '94 or '95. Got a DX4/100 at that point, and a Creative bundle containing a Sound Blaster 16, double-speed CD-ROM drive and a over a dozen games. That bundle changed my life.

 

SimCity 2000

Rebel Assault

Return to Zork

Iron Helix

Ultima 8

Wing Commander 2

Syndicate Plus

Strike Commander

Railroad Tycoon

Civilization

Silent Service 2

F-117A Stealth Fighter 2.0

 

I might even be forgetting some titles there.

About 2 years ago I bought the Devil May Cry HD Collection for the PS3 and hadn't touched it till now. It was even sealed. :p

 

Last night I finished GTA IV: TLAD(which was friggin awesome btw!) and decided to give the...ehum... DMC collection a go. Felt good opening the shrink wrap off a brand new game. I still have a couple of sealed PS3 games. I'll open them one by one when the time is right. :)

Oh, sure, gameplay caused some emotional responses before Wing Commander. Elation at winning, anger, frustration, the usual. 's why I specifically stated storytelling. :)

My Creative Bundle came with a Sound Blaster Pro, a double speed CD-ROM drive and LucasArts adventures. Monkey Island with a real CD audio track was amazing. But that was a bit earlier than the 16 came out.

Conpleted first scenario in Hard West on Hard. I needed only one restart during all of the missions. Thinking to go for Ironman attempt on Hard. But probably I should just go and play new unlocked scenarios.

What annoyed me most in Hard West is a memory leak that makes the game run worse the longer you play. Pretty much forced me to restart breaks every once in a while.

I had a 386 until 1997, no sound card at all too. So I had to imagine noises for pretty much all my games :lol:  Played a lot of F-117A until I got this bug that prevented it working, so I regressed to F-19 and also played Gunship 2k.

I played a little bit of Mysteries of Westgate. I remember getting horribly bored of it quickly.

Please, Don't Touch Anything on Steam (from our good pal ShadySands). One of those little wacky "end-a-thons", where you try to find all the different little secret endings through a variety of arcane steps or techniques in a very short game. It was fun to play around with for a couple of hours, and had decent music and visuals.

 

Scanner Sombre on Steam (also from ShadySands). Apparently, this was meant to be a VR game, which I did not realize. Oh well, it was a little bit of horror-exploration fun with a nice little gimmick of "painting" the pitch black underground cavern you're stuck in with a scanner to reveal the area as you go along.

I don't get why every review of Destiny 2 talks about how they improved upon the previous game.  IMO, so far it's the same game except the story (which wasn't that strong in the first one) got worse.  I actually thought the story was OK in Destiny 1.  This story is almost non-existent.

 

I'm losing steam with Destiny 2 for that very reason.  I've not bothered with finishing the story because it's so damn boring (and simplistic), and the activities can only hold my attention for so long.  Especially since I don't really like the PvP aspect.

I thought that was the full name of the game.  :facepalm:

 

 

And I thought at first, it was his recommendation, how we should be managing our spending habits in the world of Digital Distribution, and was awaiting some new GabeN drama, in his lenghty post...

 

I ended up disapointed :'(

Because these reviewers were maybe not objective enough, and just parroted what Mr. Bobby has written on the checks, they received? :p

 

From November 2017, all I see and read about Destiny 2, is how bad the game is compared to number one, and even wall street news are giving advice to investors to stay from that trainwreck as far away as possible...

You should finish the story just to get a high level Exotic Engram. :D
