Re: Video Games


The classic cars getting me excited are the 1998 McLaren, 2006 Renault and 2007 Ferrari. All championship winners that I was backing in the title fight. The 1998 McLaren is particularly special to me, as 1998 is my 'first' F1 season. Bless you, Mika Hakkinen. I have the Psygnosis 1998 game, which I remember fondly for being my first F1 game, but it's regarded as Psygnosis' worst game. Looking forward to seeing how it handles on the current gen under Codemasters. I can also see how the 2006 Renault differs on a Codemasters game compared to a Sony game in the same way. I would include the 2010 Red Bull in that list, except I've already driven that in the actual 2010 game.

Re: Video Games


These days I'm playing Dragon Warrior(=Quest) VII of PS1, Super Wing Commander of 3DO and give occasional try to My Hero on Master System - plus I have in hiatus unfinished old Mac game 3-in-Three.

And I always say I'm a PC gamer... emoticon

Re: Video Games


Got some games today for 1€ emoticon

The first Battlefield game 1942, including expansions, Battlefield 2142, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix.

Not really my genre, but I'll take them.
Though with my backlog, I won't be playing them this year and certainly not all of them next year either... emoticon

Re: Video Games


Man, my parents could've just bought me a-hundredish Mario games for my birthday, at that price emoticon

I might be getting the Nintendo Switch as my main birthday present this year. Anyone on here have one? All I see that looks good is Mario Odyssey (and I know Dan disgarees on that as well!)

Plugging Pankapu, a stupidly hard in places, and deceptively cute looking platformer. It was crowdfunded, and my sister was a contributor, so gets her name in the credits in the list of funders. My mum has not stopped bragging about that to people. The game's not bad, either. I personally might have rage quit ages ago on the boss fights, though. When I lose a life on a platform game's bosses, I'm sure I can hear a whine of pain from my Master System.

I lucked upon a copy of Crisis Zone for the Famicom today for $40, which is about 25-30 dollars cheaper than it goes for on eBay. Also got a freebee Space Harrier for the SMS (had the case, but no game) and a manual for Super Mario Bros. which makes my copy now complete in box.

Re: Video Games


^I did end up getting the Switch!

I'm enjoying Odyssey (only game for now) a lot so far. Sort of reminds me of Mario 64 which is a cool throwback. Some stuff (capturing enemies with your hair, being able to grab onto ledges and climb up) is a very big difference from other games but it works for me.

Collecting the purple coins is a chore though emoticon

Re: Video Games


I picked the wrong game to try to play without any help of walkthrough...

At about 170 hours of Dragon Warrior VII I got to end credits and "The End". Except...
There's a whole lot to do, as long as you don't go into the final battle. (I expect there's the real final battle and ending at the end of it.)

I got some of it done, but since about 200 hours I've been stuck for tens of hours, just grinding my characters in hope they would gain some decisive ability.
(Until the "end" point of game there were couple fortune tellers in the world giving me hints what to do next, but since then they are no help.)


On the positive gaming news, today I did something awesome.
Wing Commander Academy - a sandbox for WC, my favorite game series ever - has a game mode called Gauntlet. It's a challenge to win 45 space battles without dying once; takes about an hour and some.
I first got the game 2000. After having on hundreds of attempts reached 43rd battle some 50 times, 44th maybe 20 times and the last one half dozen times, I first finished the Gauntlet 2015 - just few days short of having had the game 15 years!

Today... I finished it for second time! emoticon
And... this time without a wingman! emoticon
(Tbh, it's about equally difficult with or without wingman. One does damage to enemies, but there's the risk of colliding to him or him hitting you and it's easier to control enemies when you know they're all after you instead of coming from any possible angle, having been after the wingman.)
