The 2018 what are we playing thread

Started & finished: Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon. Awesome Castlevania clone. If you liked Castlevania 3: Dracula´s Curse, you´ll love this one. Not as hard by a long shot but as good as a “fan game” can get.

Congratulations!

Finished:

  • Hero-U
    Text-heavy, light RPG with a few puzzles and Sauerbraten. Liked it a lot, but had wished for more adventure-style gameplay.

Started:

  • State of Mind
    Stylish.
  • Bards Tale I (Remastered)
    Having a blast with this one. Plays pretty much like I remember it from the Amiga, only this time I actually know what to do. The first game in a long time that I find hard to stop playing.

Wheeehe! All we need to do now then is bring @tasse-tee to finally play Thimbleweed Park hard mode! :ransome: :ray: :reyes: :delores: :franklin:

How can we achieve that? :thinking:

I don´t know. Pleading cat pics, maybe?

Say things like:
‘It’s a richer experience.’
‘You haven’t technically completed it until you play on hard.’
‘There are more Easter eggs.’
‘We can give you hints.’

All those things would work for me, anyway!

By that logic I should probably put the cat from the above pic in a castle man costume.

Et voila: purrrrfect!

@tasse-tee you should start playing the hard mode of TWP immediately because it’s a richer experience and you haven’t technically completed it until you play on hard. Beside that, there are more Easter eggs and we can give you hints!

That pic is one of the top results and I had almost used that. :laughing:

Now that is unfair to the other cat. It is also only a human being afterall!

Wait…

I finished Guardians of the Galaxy and the Costume Quest expansion last week. Apparently I had literally stopped playing the game right before the final boss battle whenever that was. (Well over half a year ago.)

I started playing Costume Quest 2 and Tiberian Sun. I’d swear Tiberian Sun looked better on a 14 inch CRT though…

I have the same impression with other old games - the older the games are the more I miss an old CRT. :slight_smile:

But I don’t miss the framedrops during fancy lighting effects like ion storms. :rofl:

Edit: also, I played it on my laptop. I ought to give it a go on my desktop monitor instead.

Well, the persuasive power of cute cats and great points combined has prevailed. I’ll start playing TWP Hard Mode… right now!! :smile:

I’ll make a thread once I get stuck or have something interesting to say.

I’m looking forward to helping someone else for a change. Though there will probably be a mad scramble to reply since quite a few of us will know the answer :wink:
