I went back to WoW for 60 days and I can honestly say I got my $75 worth from it. Hopefully that holds me over until the next expansion since there is no middle ground as far as me and WoW playtime - it's either 60+ hours a week or nothing. So glad to be free again though.

I enjoy watching a twitch stream of DayZ now and then but don't have the patience for playing this type of game. I'm just not in to the whole griefer mentality I guess.

News Comments > The Bard's Tale IV Announced
16. Re: The Bard's Tale IV Announced Jan 24, 2015, 20:53 Shok
 
I have fond memories of Bard's Tale 1,2,3 on the C64 but I think the Legend of Grimrock games scratch that itch these days.

On the other hand if they went all out pixel art animated monster portraits along with a retro engine with modern UI I might be interested. I just don't see them capturing that same lightning in the bottle again. Besides, the original designer and programmer of the first two games, Michael Cranford, has been out of the video game industry since the second game came out.

And the satiric Bard's tale they did didn't interest me at all. I never got into it.

I may have to get Insurgency although my STEAM backlog is crazy I probably wouldn't play it anytime soon.

Also, for anyone watching that bot video don't get trolled by the smoke alarm chirping like I did lol. I totally thought my smoke alarm battery was low but it was coming from the video...

I see the Battle Royale guys have a mode for H1Z1 already so I'll probably be buying this eventually. The engine looks a lot less glitchy compared to ARMA3 so that's good too.

Heads up, I got an email yesterday from Paradox with a free steam code in it for Cities in Motion. So look in your emails if you ever bought from Paradox. Subject of the email is "[Free Game Inside!] Paradox Forum Newsletter December 2014"

Unfortunately the best way to clean out cruft on Windows is a wipe and reinstall. CCleaner isn't bad but especially with smaller SSD's wiping is the best...

It's not something I do often but I had my main ssd fail a few weeks ago and was amazed at the performance after the reinstall.

The most searched for device was the iPhone 6, followed by the Xbox One and then the Fitbit. Surface Pro 3 made an appearance at number 5. Interestingly, Sony's PS4 was entirely absent from the top ten.

Wow, hard to believe people that use bing don't search for PS4's. Or maybe the MS PR machine is at work here.

The only thing I didn't like about JC2 was doing the same missions over and over with the same music, etc. It was still a blast but after doing it for hours it started to wear on me. Hopefully, the new game spices it up more and that won't happen.

Definitely looking forward to this and GTA5 for PC next year.

Wow, that's a pretty liberal influence with that pic on their front page; it looks exactly like Locutus of Borg (Patrick Stewart).

There's also the issue of the multiplayer base shrinking as time goes on as well. Waiting until it is really cheap may backfire if there is no one to play with online.

I haven't tried an Eve trial in a few years. Did they ever make the font adjustable without having to change resolution? I could never get past that tiny font at 1920x1080....

Edit: It's been over 3 years apparently :)

I'm hazarding a guess, but I assume there is no widescreen support from what I have read so far on another site, if you are wondering how it works on modern systems Krovven.

Long ago though, when my first forray into modding was mainly SW games, I found a way, posted on the interwebs, to 'hack' the .exe file with a hex editor to support wide screens. I did it myself once, but I don't remember how. That was way back in 2005 though, so unless GoG somehow found it, its likely someone will need to bring out the fix again.

Xwing Alliance supports widescreen and you can play the original xwing missions using it.

http://www.pcgamer.com/play-x-wing-with-upgraded-graphics-trust-us-you-should/

That's a great article to bookmark. Which raises the question:

Is XWing Alliance officially abandonware, since you can't buy it anywhere? Is it illegal to DL a CD image?

Yeah, I ran across that article a few months back. All the url's for mod files are 404's After all, the article is 4 years old...

Ghostbusters is $3 on Steam too. I probably won't play it anytime soon but is it still worth getting?

Wow, I already own the originals on floppies (including the B-wing X-wing expansion) and the "hi-res" CD version but I'll still be getting it on GoG. Can't wait to pew pew pew again!
