The 2018 what are we playing thread


#523

I always think I spend much less time playing than most gamers I know :slightly_smiling_face: I only really play for a few hours at the weekend usually - sometimes the odd weeknight if I’m alone. I have done better this year than last though, probably due to forum encouragement :wink:


#524

Come again?

:mega: MONKEY ISLAND 2: LECHUCK’S REVENGE


#526

cough… I need a moment to recover…

the sh%%load of cr%p you played before playing the game… cough

Ok, back to my senses, I admit I don’t know most of those games.


#527

Just because it’s MI doesn’t mean I was automatically desperate to play it :slightly_smiling_face: There were various reasons I played those other games first (chronological order being one).

And yeah, having played them I wouldn’t call any of them crap. (If MI was crap I wouldn’t be playing the second one!)

  • Finished State of Mind
    By and large it played a bit like Firewatch, though without reaching its class. It meshed pretty well with my own pessimistic view of the future (of technology), but as some reviewer somewhere wrote, it would have done better by focusing on one or two aspects instead of throwing everything that’s conceivable into the mix.

  • Started Divinity Original Sin 2
    Wine 3.16 finally allows running that on Linux. Not enjoying it as much as the first part though, as it needlessly complicated the combat mechanics and got rid of the humorous mood. But it’s still fun.

I’m currently playing Désiré.
It’s a point’n’click adventure game, free, where the main character is a 12yo French boy, who is achromat, that is he can’t see any colour, only black and white.

The plot seems intriguing, a little bitter.

I’ve played only a few minutes so far, but I like it:



#532

Finished. I hate games like this. :grimacing:


#533

That was pretty quick.

I don’t have any interest in playing the game. It looked way too boring. I think GOG or something gave it to me though.


#534

It took around 3 hours. Unfortunately the PS4 doesn´t have VR Support so that would have made it more interesting.


#535

You need one of those super PS4s for PS VR?


#536

You mean the Pro? Technically no, but it is said to make a noticable difference.


#537

Yes, but I was just reading a review for a Super NIntendo game.


#538

The game I’m playing (Désiré) is really… peculiar! It touches many forbidden topics (it’s rated 16+), with a mix of poetry and frankness, without judging.
The inventory interface may not be as perfect as Ron’s ones, but that’s not the main goal of this game.
It’s something that can touch each of us.
@milanfahrnholz I want you to play this game.


#539

Why me?

And come friday I don´t think I have much time for anything else!

But I´ll remember it. Reminds me of the Harvester Games games.


#540

Oh, I remember Désiré. I was going to buy it when it came out, I found the idea of him being color blind very interesting. But then I read a plot summary about the other themes treated in the game and decided I would skip it. I thought it would be too dark for my taste.

It’s not related with it being a game; I probably wouldn’t watch a film with the same content.


#541

Yes, it could give a bad impression, but actually these topics are only talked about, soft explicit images, put there to describe the human soul.
I’m going to finish it today I suppose.

Now the game is free.


#542

I feel you can enjoy this game.
