Re: Fighting Fantasy

One of the Lone Wolf books (I forget which one) had a similar enemy, which even with max stats and the best gear (Sommerswerd weapon) almost always ended in player death, unless you got really damn lucky with your dice rolls or you cheated. That is a once off though. Back on subject though, my favor...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently playing through the 13th Doll, which launched a few weeks ago, and had been in development for quite some time, after being successfully funded on KS. Overall I'm REALLY enjoying it.

Re: The most disappointed you've ever been in a release

Two games for me: GTA 4 - Yes the game looked good, and yes action was great and yes the strip clubs were great. But all the really good stuff from Vice City and San Andreas were removed entirely. Purchase-able businesses / locations - Gone. RPG elements - Gone. Territory control - Gone. GTA 5 fixed...

Re: Amusement Arcades, where are they?

All the "arcades" over here in Australia have turned into amusement centres filled with basketball games and air hockey. Take me back to the 90s.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Oh yeah I know. News of that has not gone down very well on other forums I frequent (eg systemshock.org, TTLG etc etc). Many don't see the need for it, as with NewDark + mods the games great as is. The only area that could use improvement is the multiplayer, which is where Night Dive have said their...

Currently replaying System Shock 2 in honor of it celebrating it's 20 year anniversary. Fantastic game.
I remember my brother coming home with a copy of that when it was new....
Game is fantastic even today. Had a blast through it again.

I've since moved onto AC - Odyssey.

PS4.

Nearly every good game on the PS3, you can get for the PC. Besides Demon Souls and a few others.

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Anyone here experience the joy con drift issue, which Nintendo is currently in QUITE a bit of trouble over?

There is a good chance I'll be getting a switch in a few months, so be interesting to see just how widespread the issue is.
