I've never got around to Pirates!

Recently I've been trying to play old PC games that I never got to either because A) I was too young B) Was never a PC gamer, since I only played on consoles

I just started playing XCOM: UFO Defense, but Pirates! has always been on my radar for sometime now.

Certainly worth it!

The other day, I beat "The Testament of Sherlock Holmes." Oh boy, was it a good game! I loved it!  laugh

Today I'm playing "The Adventures of Tin Tin." Also, I'm still a big fan of "Carcassonne."

Yup, I'm afraid Skyrim, Black ops, Fifa and whatever just don't cut it for me these days.. Sure the graphics are nice but the element of having fun has long since gone from the gaming industry, its sadly turned into one big money hungry monster with an appetite to boot.

I seen people on the internet watching footage of RE6 before it was released, it struck me a bit pointless and sad... that people have gotten to a stage where they'd rather sit and watch someone else play a game before it is released than have the experience themselves.... its another nail in the coffin of the ever voeyeristic social media drenched modern age.

Be careful. This probably all sounds logical to you, but it's a symptom of that most dreaded of diseases: getting old. Pretty soon you'll be complaining about how music these days isn't as meaningful and actors aren't as sophisticated as they were back when you were young.

Asteriktos,

I do not doubt your wisdom for a minute, as i must admit I've been feeling this way since the turn of the millennium...Games, Music, Films you name it, its all lost a certain shine about it.

I think it was the young woman Amy MacDonald who saved me from Musical oblivion but everything else is just a remix of something before. The countless horrors and films from the 80's and 90's that have been remade shows a distinct lack of imagination. Skinny jeans, lady Gaga, reality tv and social media '' PASS ''

So i think we can safely say i have the getting old disease. Not to worry though life has a natural forward momentum about it, so bring it on.  laugh

I am near the end of the game and it has been a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, its a good enough game on its own, but it is nothing like Hitman is supposed to be. I loved the openness of Blood Money and Contracts. You were given several targets/tasks and were free to complete them in any order you so choose (and disguises were actually useful). Absolution made the game into some linear, Splinter Cell clone where 90% of the objectives involved finding an exit or evading the police. Way too much stealth involved (earlier Hitman games were more about blending in with the environment/NPCs, not climbing through air ducts).

"Hello 47, your target is a large wooden door with a metal handle".

If you have never played Blood Money, check it out. The developers rectified the problems of the earlier games and made a masterpiece. Don't know what they were thinking with this most recent installment.

Crusader Kings II. Runs slow on my machine (although everything does atm; I think I need to do some maintenance), but still an absolute blast. Don't play Spanish, though, unless you like to name your own children or want to play 400 straight years of various Kings Alfonso.

The Walking Dead.  Finished the last episode of the season.  Horrible QA/customer service during the episode releases, awful coding, but a solid and emotionally wrenching story and voice acting.  Has anyone taken it through to the end?

I am so hooked on XCom: Enemy Unknown.  It is very faithful to the original, although there are certain elements from the original I miss.  I wish they just did a straight port of the original.  Although in today's world of gamers with instant gratification (why else would things that can be unlocked by completing things in a game be profitable as a "pay-to-unlock" feature?), I can understand why they streamlined the game and removed a lot of the micro-management aspects of the game.  Although I wish they still kept the original way of building a base (ie, you can build many bases around the world) including building defenses for your base and have aliens actually attack your base.

The new game is great, but still pales in comparisson to the original which was trully a deep game.

There is a game for X Box that's based on the show "NCIS." I got it two days ago, and so far I've earned about 20 achievements. It's not the toughest game I've ever played. I like mysteries, though.

Cyrillic where do you find all the time?

I would usually laugh at people in this thread but you are younger, writing 93k word treatises on Byzantium, arguing in the Hague, arm wrestling women, partying it up, and speaking Dutch all at the same time.

Could you explain to me something about time management, especially if you feel every moment is a soul crushing burden?

Thanks.

By the way, if anyone has finished the Walking Dead (or if any of you do not plan on playing it and so would not mind extreme spoilers), I've made a video of the final emotionally wrenching scene with my own background musical rendition: nai music concluded with Byzantine chant.  (Yeah, I'm something of a softie.  Don't blame an Arab.)  The heightened emotional tone likely wouldn't make much sense and seem over the top if you've not played through the entire game as it works its way through and invests emotions in the growing parental relationship between the protagonist and the girl who becomes his ward, both of whom have been professionally and superbly voice-acted throughout.  If you have played it through and know what I'm talking about, then I hope it does some justice to the scene without tipping the scales much over to the side of melodrama (1:42 to 1:52 was unavoidable; apologies there).  I think I was lucky in that much musical phrasing in the recording seems to follow well with the lines of alternating dialogue.  A rating or comment would be appreciated.

I have a question about that game, if you happen to know. There is a Walking Dead game set to be released at the end of December... do you know if that is just a collection of the 5 parts that were downloadable, or if it's an entirely new/different game?

There is a second season being made, but that's not until next year.  The only thing before then I can imagine being done is Telltale preparing a CD containing all the episodes for PC players like myself, (it makes sense as that would make it a Christmas holiday release), badly needed by the way since with TWD and for the first time, they've stopped making available to us as individual downloads separate install files for each episode to keep on our computers. (We were forced to use their awfully bugged, badly coded, save-game demolishing download system--the inverse relationship between the quality of the game's content and that of its coding vis a vis savegames, facilitation of downloads and installations, and choice continuation--add to that customer service, communication, and QA--was phenomenal.)

But perhaps you've heard something I've not?  Where did you get the information?

By the way, have you played it yet, Asterikos?  I'd recommend the PC if not, simply because you have the ability to back up your save games in case anything happens.

Ah.  No, that's an FPS game.  Telltale's is entirely different: story-driven drama relying mostly on dialogue choices, but they too are planning a 2013 release for the second season of their game.

I guess you'll have to save that video link for watching once you've finished the entire thing, then.  My advice for trouble-free gameplay: download all the episodes before playing anything (so that the patches are all applied and the risk for savegame quirks are minimised), then after a playthrough of each episode, back up your save games along with the very critical prefs.prof file.  Best of luck.

Finished BG and BG II, now ID but it's boring in comparison to them (especially BG I which seems to be most nuanced game I've ever played).

By ID do you mean Icewind Dale? If so, then I agree. While I enjoy a good hack-and-slash it just can't compete with the BG series.

If you haven't already, give Planescape: Torment a try next if you want something more like BG.

The Second icewind dale is much better than the first, reccomend it over the first any day.

It's on the list after ID II.
