The 2018 what are we playing thread


#623

It´s a real thing. Check out the Necronomicon by Abdul Alhazred to read all about it if you can get hold of a copy.


#624

According to Wikipedia:
Cthulhu [/kəˈθuːluː/] is a fictional cosmic entity created by writer H. P. Lovecraft in 1928

So besides my basic skepsis towards it being real, it seems to not be an actual thing in history either (meaning never worshipped by man). :thinking:


#625

So, any decisions for one more game, POK? :slight_smile:

I started Ocarina of Time for the umpteenth time. I guess I stick with what I know… But If I had a newer console I would be tempted to try RDR2 based ob Milan’s reviews.


#626

HEY!!! LISTEN!!!

I played it on the PS4 (which I got in anticipation of that game actually but I obviously have gotten a lot more for it in the meantime inclluding TwP!) but most people seem to play it on XBox. It will probably never come out for PC just like the first game.


#627

Nope, not yet! I might go for my Lucasabbatical (if only so I can keep using that word) and buy something else from my wishlist. Unforeseen Incidents, maybe? :slight_smile:

I still want to play We Happy Few, but crikey, 44.99?!

Otherwise I might just do some retroga- I mean, play some old games :wink:


#628

I´m gonna have myself whatever sabbatical that young lad is having!


#629

Then a desert hobo came and told me
We all got a chicken duck woman thing waiting for us.


#630

I just finished Unforeseen Incidents. It’s pretty much a suspenseful and dark point & click game. Well, there are some occasional jokes, but after all the story is very serious and dramatic - and a bit bloody. Hence it’s not really a game for kids.
Admittedly, there were a few puzzle solutions which were not very… say obvious, but those were exceptions. Most of all puzzles are absolutely fair and I don’t regret to have played this game. I enjoyed it.


#631

Cool, thanks :slightly_smiling_face: useful to hear what you thought of it, and I really like the sound of the dark mood!

Steam sale at the moment too, so I should probably grab it soon.

How long did it take you to complete, roughly?


#632

It’s hard to tell. I bought the game months ago and played it very infrequently, because I have been very busy. It might have taken me about 20 hours to complete. This may sound long, but, keep in mind, please, that I am probably not a good indicator anyway. I use to be a slow player, when I haven’t played the game before.

By the way, Chapter 3 became a bit confusing to me, as the story dealt with so many character’s names. Maybe you should make notes regarding the different characters. Just a tip.


#633

Noted, thanks. I may try and squeeze this one in for 2018. If I need any hints I’ll be poking you!


#634

Alright, feel free to ask me.


#635

So the Sierra games are on sale now on GOG. The trilogy of the first three Space Quest games is just 2.19! Couldn´t even buy a beer for that price! Thinking real hard right now… :thinking:


#636

*slap* what is there to think about?


#637

Ouch, :pleading_face: well 2.19 is still more than nothing!

How much more time do I have for this offer? Until black friday is over?!


#638

Righty then, doing this now.


#639

finished
Diablo I (my replay as a sorcerer)

(re)started (with the intention to finish within the next few weeks/months):
Sam&Max season 1
Space Quest 1
Star Wars - The Force Unleashed
i.e. games starting with the letter S

bought: Tomb Raider (2013) - when will I ever play this then?


#640

I bought them (1&2) during a GOG sale, because Star Wars + LucasArts.
Are they OK? (First review I saw said “bad console port” and oohhh I don’t like the sound of this…)

Stomp Raider (2013)?

#641

And it’s pretty terrible to boot, which is kind of odd because you could cut together a pretty decent action horror flick out of TR 2013 ingame footage. If you had the right tools it might not even take that much time to cutsceneify some choice gameplay sequences.


#642

I like them (the first at least, I’m in level 3 or so). I would recommend to play with a controller though. The graphics are really awesome (my reference being Dark Forces, which also has great graphics for its time). My only gripe is the levels are a bit too long + no subtitles for in-game voices, which causes some intercom to get lost with all the explosions, screaming and mayhem going on.
But if you like Star Wars and some semi-rpg mechanisms and shooter games, you’ll have lots of fun.

Well, if I would play them alphabetically… I will get around to playing Tomb Raider in 25 years. For now I just bought it.
