I've been playing Morrowind trying to explore the new lands from Tamriel Rebuilt. It gets crashy and the game doesn't autosave, though. :(

Waiting for some good FO4 creation kit stuff to come out. Idk when it really releases.

Do you play Vanilla DoW1, or an Expansion? I own all the DoWs, and I quite like to go back and replay Dark Crusade.

...Never get me started about Soulstorm though. I hate Soulstorm.

Sadly I'm not playing much. I was trying a few things on the Vive, but they're mostly tech demos. I would love to start Witcher 3 as soon as I get the time (like never..).

Fallout 4 is my current obsession. Let's not talk about the number of hours I've put into that game, and not all the DLCs are out yet. Wow!

I played out Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, but that was awhile back.

Super excited to see The Tower in all its Unreal glory!

I like New Vegas best, and from what I've seen 4 has not a lot of the stuff I like from it... So probably good anyway but I'll wait for a price drop

What stuff do you like in New Vegas? I've played Fallout 3, NV and 4 extensively. They have very similar look-and-feel. Curious what you see in New Vegas that's unique.

I find the conversations and stuff between characters a lot better in NV, they feel a lot more... I don't really know how to describe it, fluid maybe? Unless you're switching back and forth to questions they feel much more like an actual coherent conversation. Gameplay is mostly same as 3 anyway, so not much can be said about that, though the little tweaks are nice, but for me the character interaction just feels a lot more engaging. The main motivations of the factions also feel better thought out I think. The colour scheme is another thing I like over 3, it gives off a much better desolate vibe. Also I'm really annoyed by the dialogue choice system in 4.

Oh and desert ranger armour is awesome. That's just a fashion thing though :D

For me, I think it's the gameplay. The weapons in FO3 suck and break all of the time. In FNV, there's a broader selection of weapons, most are modable, so you can find something perfect for your play style. Also, FO3 felt impossible without using VATS. You could be pointing directly at a hostiles head and it would hit everywhere except the head. in FNV, the only time I used VATS was when the target was in my face (e.g. rushing deathclaw). Gameplay is 80% of the fallout games; FO3 fell flat on its face in that regard so...it pains me to play it.

I agree, Empyrion is pretty much a prime example how Early Access should be handled. There are constant updates and most of them are not some alibi patches. I like to play around abit and then wait a few weeks just to be overwhelmed by the new features.

And Transistor is pretty special... actually more art than game, if you ask me. While not 100% my cup of tea, I like the concept. Also I have a thing for wacky sci-fi stuff that is never fully explained, not even with techno-babble :)

Doom Doom or New Doom? :P I recently discovered some belief-suspending mods for ye olde doome, they're oddly well made but completely bonkers at many times.

Well i've been doing some retro gaming and playing Ultima Underworld. For a game made a year before I was born its quite a bit more advanced than most recent AAA games o.o

Retro games rock, hard. From FF to Kotor to Aoe there's an excellent game for every category. I haven't gotten to the Ultima series though, what're they like?

Well the underworld games are dungeon crawlers, but theyre also immersive simulationist games that were made by the same studio that went on to make Thief, System Shock, Deus Ex. Consortium and a lot of other games owe quite a bit to Underworld.

Absolutely it does! That game, and those others (except Deus Ex, believe it or not) most definitely were part of our inspiration for making Consortium. My never released Cavedog game "Amen: The Awakening" is the most direct inspiration - that game was 60% done when Cavedog fell apart, forcing the project's cancellation. Amen came as a direct result of my playing ALL of the immersive sims and first-person RPGs made in the 80s and 90s. Deus Ex and Amen were in production at the same time, and both games shared a lot in common (immersive sims with full inventory system, hot-slots, story driven). Great that they were able to finish their game!

I've been playing the "Sorcery!" series lately (on part 3 now...). Really immersive fun, especially for me as the original 4 part Fighting Fantasy Gamebook series is one of my childhood faves.

Really? It's funny how I heard people describe consortium as "like Deus Ex" after hearing you say that. I guess you just have really good taste xD

Do you know who owns Amen: The Awakening now? If The Tower did really well, is that something you'd consider buying rights to and finishing? A lot of old series are getting revived by their original developers lately. It sounds like Amen would still have an audience today, especially on GOG.


I'm playing SPAZ2 now.

Consortium is basically Amen, but massively improved and refined in every way. Also, the actual piece of software that was abandoned is far too old and rotten to do anything meaningful with at this point. I believe I actually own the rights to Amen, though, technically. :-)

Cool that you enjoyed SPAZ2, the two guys behind it are extremely good and talented developers.

Ooo, since you own it, you should totally make Amen a thing in the alternative reality. :D


SPAZ2 is pretty good. It has areas to improve but it feels like a sequel to SPAZ without being SPAZ. Even though it is still Early Access, I'd consider it a complete game.

Playing Company of Heroes 2 now (still on sale at Humble).

While im waiting for the release of Tyranny I decided to give Pillars of Eternity another try. I had trouble getting into it before but now that I have a party thats half story characters and half created npcs (who don't have crap builds like the story npcs) im having a better time of it.

So I "aquired" an old bungie title called Oni (Yes they made games other than Halo or Destiny). Its a a 3d beat em up made for PC (and Mac, and PS2...) and its actually pretty good. Keep in mind this came out before steam was even a thing and there weren't any beat em ups for pc at all other than this game.

Just finished Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. I noticed in the special thanks part of the credits that Raven software was in there. That might explain why the fps and melee combat was decent/good.
