it was the same thing with Unreal, and most of the Build Engine games. ;)

(And yes, it is confirmed that your starting PC can die and the game goes on.)
Yeah, my first character found a big fight going on and slipped in to loot the dead. And while I was doing that, someone came back and just annihilated me.

Well you all convinced me.. Forked out the cash for Kenshi... Will take note of my initial exploits to see how long I last before I look at any guides :-)

Kenshi - oh god, I checked it out mid-2013 and it was a mess. Gotta give it another try now, it is in my account anyway. :D

Well.... that was... fun... sort of...

So I lasted about 10 days.... Started to get some weapons and gear. Had a small house in the Hub. Research Bench, was doing a lot of Copper mining for cash, which let me live.

Had a few close calls with large groups of nasty guys... 1 lot who beat me almost to death, and took my food.

Pilfered a bunch of dead bandits after a fight... etc

Built a training dummy... Trained up a bit in combat.... went outside feeling all tough, spotted 2 adult goats and a baby. Attacked them with my new found skills. They left me unconscious with a bad stomach wound... that went critical... and killed me....

And so ended my first attempt.... :-D

It was surprisingly fun... Despite most of my time spent mining Copper....

Conan Exiles, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Assassin's Creed : Origins and I just installed C64 Forever Express Edition.

There's old game by Creative/Reality Martech called Slaine. I was playing this morning before I got fed up with it's unusual control scheme. It's a text adventure with comic book style graphics based on 2000AD character of Slaine, a wandering Celtic barbarian in exile & his faithful but unscrupulous dwarf companion Ukko travelling the wilds of Tir-Nan-Og. Only armed with a trusty stone battle axe.....Brain-Biter.


Plenty of other old C64 games to paly on there. Over a hundred.

I recall Slaine from 2000Ad.... been a looooooooong time though....

There are some great c64 games.

My personal favourite is still Enigma Force.... Something about that game really grabbed me, and I didn't realise but it was actually a sequel to a game called Shadowfire. But I didn't like Shadowfire as much. The Gameplay was a bit dull. Especially compared to the action of Enigma Force....

And the music....

You can still read Slaine. They been selling all the graphic novel up to the ones that are current now at the 2000AD online Shop. (Not sure If they'd let me put the link up here. ) Look for my page on facebook Slaine the Warped Wanderer and ask to join if you like. Just remember, I have three questions.


Right now, I'm deciding wether to spend the thirty dollars to upgrade my C64 Forever Membership. So, I can continue play Slaine.

I went ahead and brought the software download. It wasn't even 30 dollars, downlaoding it right now.

Now playing Assassin's Creed Syndicate. Both that and Origins are huge games to get into. There is so much scope, It's been a while since I last played Syndicate and it took me a bit to get the hang of it again. On stopped playing cause of a significant drop in frame rate.

Wow. That does not look good. Did you play ELEX? If you want a third person RPG ELEX is supposed to be actually good. Preorders can be cancelled. Friendly advice :)
