Dear sweet holy Jesus this game looks amazing. Only problem is, I'm so old that playing it might give me a heart attack.

Hey, have you played Alien Isolation? You really should. I think you'd like it. Devilish
Sauron has a heart?

What are you using as the client Blue? I doubt the original .exe works with Windows, but thats just an assumption.

For convenience I picked up a copy on Steam, which seems to work fine, except for the vertical mouse dealie. I may get inspired to pick up one of those more modern ports again though, as while I am not a graphics whore, the 320x200 resolution of the original is pretty horrible on a big monitor.
I can't stand the pixels anymore. I like Doomsday Engine: http://www.dengine.net/ ...

I love the higher resolution, dynamic lighting, mouselook and all the other things that perk it up, but I seem to have a real problem with various incompatibility issues and glitches adding on model packs and the like.

That said, I still own my copy of THE ULTIMATE DOOM, so happy birthday, game that gave me so much pleasure.
Yeah. I still haven't seen any other projects that are better or the same so far.

wow....where does the time go....

Kids and women, sigh. Women especially always find a way to fill time, they can't just be doing nothing.
I don't have a woman and baby goats (oh, the human type -- children). I just don't have the time and energy like I used to. I am struggling to keep up online. I need to retire, but have a long way to go (hint: I was still in high school when DOOM 1 shareware came out and couldn't play it on my IBM PS/2 Model 30 286 10 Mhz desktop PC!). DOOM got me addicted when I got my custom built 486 DX2/66 desktop PC. I even made two/2 DOOM II mod(ification)s: http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html ...

I think it's Eastlink. I'm in a medium sized town and a while ago they made these big promos to attract customers, which worked. And bottlenecked the lines, but since we aren't a huge major city, they don't care to upgrade. And not much competition means less reasons to care.

Network cable fixes it, the PS4 connected to it doesn't have these issues (can't get access to it). And Chromecast doesn't work well either, when plugged into the TV that sits beside the router.

Its one of those reasons I stopped online gaming. I've gotten used to the set it and forget it downloading on Steam because of these issues. Not much else I can do. But its times like this that it becomes a major issue.
Been there, done that. Another reason for competitions. I only have one/1 affordable broadband option where I live: Cable. I cannot get DSL, FIOS, etc.

Well, I have Bioshock Infinite and run Linux, and am now currently installing Bioshock Infinite for Linux.

Now to see if there is an executable file... (I'll tell you after all 17 gigs are downloaded...)

*edit* Misread it, it's 14.8 gigs..
"And then?"

And then I remember just how much my internet speeds sucked...
"And then?" Also, how bad? No caps I hope!

That looks unbelievably bad. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

One of those rare times Cutter and I agree. Cameron was done after 2, and everything since has been pretty poor. The TV series was the best of the bunch. (Which is why, of course, they cancelled it.)
Blame FOX again!

What good mods are there?

If you don't use Steam's Workshop this is a good website for mods: Runic's Fan Site.

I haven't played for a while, but there is everything from skins to conversions to new character classes. Same for the second game.

I have heard that the "Wulf Mod Pack" is good for first time players. Smooths out the rougher edges of the game but doesn't drastically change things. You can find it under mod packs on the above linked page.
Thanks. I would want to try full mod packs when I have time. I didn't get Torchlight 1 from Steam.

My backlog is, so far, winning the battle this year. Usually I buy stuff even though my backlog is ridiculously long. This year seems to be different for some reason. I have less time to play than in previous years, so that is probably part of it. I have some really well reviewed games in my backlog, which is probably a bigger part. I haven't played Dishonored yet, for example.

I don't have time to play games anymore... It's actually starting to affect my mood...
Me too, and I don't even have a woman and still am a single virgin! I struggle to visit BN!! :O
