Played both as well, Paul, and enjoyed them as well. I need to replay Detroit because, taking a full-on "robots are not real beings" approach causes the player to apparently miss a LOT of gameplay. :-D

I'm playing Wasteland 2 and trying to save up to buy some power armor in California. While I work on that I bought Fallout 76 for when I have enough of Wasteland from time to time. Wasteland is interesting, but i'm not used to playing that type of game. It's fun though

Anybody play Fallout 76 on Xbox?

Right now, I'm "playing" "the Sims" while looking at houses for sale in Alicante , trying to find one that both I and my wife like, and I swear Dark Souls is easier :lol: on a more serious note, I sadly haven't played Wasteland for a couple weeks (I might play a little tomorrow though), as I recently got my hands on Ace Combat 7.

Obscurely, despite owning every other one in the franchise, I am finally playing GTA 5.

Its been a while for me between GTA games... so its actually been a lot of fun. I also like the multi character story mechanic.

Queen's Wish: The Conqueror

While grafically and with sound absolutely obsolete, I still enjoy the story and the game mechanics. If you had fun with other games from Spiderweb Software you should really give it a try.

Got my copy of Stygian and I've been playing it a bit.

The interaction with the game feels a little odd, almost like a point-n-click adventure game. I mean, it's very much an RPG, but I can't quite shake that PnC feeling. The art is a little odd, feeling like it was heavily inspired by Edward Gorey. I like it, but it took a little getting used to. The game also desperately needs a manual. You can hit F1 to get UI information in and out of combat, but I would really prefer even a short manual to read, especially with things like casting spells half hidden in a radial wheel you have to pull up specifically.

It's also completely unforgiving. There's an Angst system, which seems to be a bar that fills like Experience, but, apparently, as it levels up, you get various bad effects (like anti-Perks and decreased experience gain). Fleeing from battle gives you Angst, but so does winning fights. There's also a (very) rudimentary food and rest system (doesn't seem to be a visible clock though, so you get kind of surprised when those things crop up). Near as I can tell, stealth builds are the way to go, at least while you're learning the game. I've been in about ten or so fights and only won one of them. And not for failure on tactics; there's no cover system, it's kind of just slugging it out.

For saves, it works on a soft Iron Man system. At any point (except maybe mid-fight), you can Save And Exit the game, so you can stop playing whenever you wish without losing progress. Otherwise, the only saving that happens is auto-saves, which are dropped every time you load into a new zone. This does allow for mild save scumming, but you have to be willing to replay from when you entered the zone (not too bad when I accidentally pissed off a shopkeep, more so when I bollocksed up some exploration). Combats also don't appear to use a seed method like XCOM does, so if a battle goes spectacularly bad, you can restart it (there's a specific "Restart Battle" option).

It's a pretty unforgiving game, but so far, most combat has been completely avoidable, so it's not as grinding as, say, Darkest Dungeon. So far, I've been enjoying it. There's a few typos and weird syntax, and it's a little rough at points, but that's all as would be expected from a small studio. Assuming it maintains its current quality level, it's a solid B+.

Just finished Seven: The Days Long Gone Enhanced Edition.

I loved most of it. It's a little buggy, especially with save game loading which is annoying because you die... a... lot.
The story is good and I liked it enough to play it twice, so that says something.

Wasteland.

On a C64 emulator. Damn, but that color palette is great.
