UnderRail does have recruitable party members but otherwise has a great stats/skills system and a focus on the single player. Age of Decadence too, although that is more about having multiple...

At least 4 or 5 versions of Pong on this badboy.

Not as himself I hope, but Charlie Brooker turned up as a Nazi in Sniper Elite 3:

I wonder if the high-profile failure of the ZANO drone project (£2.3m kickstarter) will impact Kickstarter generally? It's one of the most tangible cases of a complete failure to deliver what was...

I'm not sure why but WoW's graphics just work better for me than most other MMO's. Guild Wars 2, Star Trek, LOTR and the like all had much 'sharper' more detailed character models and environment...

Ah, both felt like top notch games at the time. Somehow I doubt they've held up that well.
The game making scene was incredible in those days. Going down the local newsagents to see what new £1.99...

We had a whole team ("AB Legends" thanks to our 70 match Arathi Basin winning streak) who supported each other into the top spots. Our little High Warlord factory produced about 8 HW's in total I...

Ah, nothing exciting. Just meant to take a month off between jobs but then found that becoming two months... because of WoW, then... err... a year. Meanwhile I'm paying rent on a London flat eating...

Altered Beast I'd imagine.

Played was probably a rip-off version of Pong on my dad's 'Grandstand TV Game model 2000' console (http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=3&c=1288). Following that it would have been a...

World of Warcraft by a country mile. Around 4,000 hours logged by the time I quit I think but it could have been more... and I quit at the start of WotLK.
I would guess that the next one behind...

Speaking as one of the many who have seen the original Star Wars trillogy well over 100 times, but never bothered with the expanded universe... I always assumed that Tie Fighters and X-Wings were...
Yeah, working on and off for me. Fine in the forums, but when trying to comment it prompts me to log-in... so I do, then I go to the news page to comment and it seems I'm not logged in again.

Or, another view is "why bother with Season Passes and Deluxe Editions?".
I'm pretty sure I've never bought either or those in the past, for any game. I'm not even sure I entirely understand the...

Yeah, I've powerlined a connection from my PS4 to the PSTV in the upstairs bedroom and it's unreliable at best.
10-09-2015, 08:29 PM
Cheers - I hope it works better than PS4 remote play (and PS TV) which seems to struggle streaming reliably whether wired or not unless I'm in the same room as the router - and that's with Virgin...

I'm not a hardware expert, so bear with me. I'm just about reaching the end of the lifespan of my Dell XPS17 laptop which was about £1000 five years ago and need to consider what to get...
CM01/02 as you can probably complete 10 games in 30 minutes.
Chaos Reborn (although some matches can drag).
That's a strange way of looking at it. As a player of every Elite since I first got my sticky 9yr old hands on it back in the mid 80's I always felt that with technological progress it would be very...
Must not mention Star Citizen, must not mention Star Citizen...
Looks OK but I haven't played Elite since about a month after it left Beta. Is it a lot better now than it was? I don't think it...

Yeah :/ I r old.
Mostly though I get annoyed by RPG's with lots of dialogue, cut scenes, intricate crafting systems or 'open world' exploration... which is pretty much most RPG's since 1998. I...

Bards Tale 4 is ironically 'crawling' along now so I can't see it getting close to the 1.9m Avelone tier. I'm not that bothered, it almost seems a waste of a great writer to be involved in a Blobber...
08-07-2015, 10:55 AM
Mine, in this rough order although nostalgia probably creeps in for Bards Tale 1:
1. Wizardry 6 (PC/Amiga)
2. Suikoden 2 (PS1/PSP/Vita)
3. Bards Tale 1 (PC Dosbox)
4. Pools of Darkness...

Beamdog seemed to improve their work after BG1 EE was released so theres some hope that they can pull it off, but it's still a BIIIG stretch to go from a team that remasters / optimises old games to...
