I've been sucked into Morrowind for the first time. A friend has been easing me into the "high fantasy" genre I used to not like, played DnD for a bit and then he said Elder Scrolls is basically DnD in a game. Morrowind and Oblivion were on sale so I got them.

I'm a total noob playing on -100 difficulty but still it's amazing, but you all knew that 20 years ago.

Since Bethesda made Arena and Daggerfall free I've been thinking of going even further back in time to play those too. Some things sound really appealing - Arena's randomly generated dungeons and Daggerfall's sheer size. But I've also been warned they are extremely hard and so old and outdated there's kind of no point.

Anyone here like those games? What do you think, tell me about them.

Yeah its decent. I like it, it makes it a lot more immersive and fun. Easy to setup and run.

I played through Arena once doing a play through of all of them in order but it really wasn't worth it. Daggerfall though I still play on a semi-regular basis, although I play Morrowind quite a bit more since I think it hits that sweet spot between complexity and streamlined playing, plus mods.

The thing I like about both Morrowind and Daggerfall is they're more like fever dreams or a trip than trying to just be kind of a cookie cutter "the dark ages but with magic and elves" like Arena, Oblivion, and Skyrim are. Granted the lore IS still quite a bit more interesting than almost any other fantasy game that comes to mind, at least ones that aren't based on existing IPs. But both Morrowind and Daggerfall have this very eerie vibe to them that I really like.

For what it's worth I also really enjoy ESO and don't get mad at the lore because literally all of actual history is conflicting accounts and misunderstandings anyway, I don't particularly give a shit about consistency as long as there aren't any sort of wild deviations which I find few in ESO that can't be explained away with "it was a long ass times ago, things were different back then".

tried it, the constant commentary and tutorials were annoying as fuck.

Dialogues were not funny. Forced and badly written.
no idea if its gets better later in the game, but I didn't play far.

There was a third person adventure game called Drakan on PS2, in one quest you have to go kill a cockatrice, which is basically a giant chicken, and I've definitely died to it... so, it's not unheard of.

I thought that the Arma campaigns were pretty immersive. I really liked those Arma 2 missions where they just let you complete the mission in whatever way you wanted.

Steam Remote Gay Together review

Played some internet-based local coop to test this out last night.

Games tested: Gangbeasts; Duck Game; Ultimate Chicken Horse

Voice chat: Reasonably high quality, "just werks" out of the box. Echo cancelling is not very good, so plan to use headphones. Never dropped out. Sometimes game volume was far too loud; keeping games at 5-10% volume or totally off in some situations worked best. However, even when the game was running, it's critical to say again that voice chat never cut out once. It was always there, seamless, from our group chat right into the game.

Connecting: You need to be friends in order to use the feature. Start the game, right click and select Invite to Remote Gay Together. One friend was able to join immediately and select his controller. Other had a problem where I had to cancel the invite and then reinvite every time we played a new game.

Latency: This is what everyone's wondering about. Is this playable with high levels of precision? When Remote Play Together launched with Cuphead as the flagship title, people balked. There's no way the input could be that good.

We were connecting from the US, Canada and Japan. This would be a proper test of how well controls responded. To put it bluntly: when it didn't work, it sucked ass (total freeze, both remote players unable to control anything but I as the host could). But when it did work, it was absolutely brilliant. My friend in Japan was able to absolutely nail shots in Duck Game. And most of the time, it worked. According to them, it was very close to being there, and they didn't feel any need to complain, even in highly input-sensitive games.

Recommend?: It's still rough around the edges, but the core components are there. When it works, it works really well. And the fact that only one person needs to buy and run the game is huge. I'd definitely try this with your stranded homies this Pandemic Season.

I tried it out with a buddy in Divinity Original Sin 2. Thought it'd be a good game to do it on since combat is turn based so if there were any lag, it wouldn't be an issue. Unfortunately it didn't work that well for us for some reason. The stream would be perfect on his end until it suddenly disconnected him. The disconnects happened roughly every 15 minutes. Tried Enter the Gungeon as well and it was the same. Worked fine for about 15 minutes until he was suddenly disconnected.

We couldn't figure out what the issue was. I know it's not a speed thing since I have 400 down/25 up connection as host and he had something like 200/20 and we were both using a wired connection. Fucked around with different settings for the remote play stuff on steam but we eventually gave up.

Oh, quick question too to follow up on this. Anyone know of any other streaming software that's good for streaming and playing local coop with long distance bros? I've heard about Parsec but I don't know shit about it. Is it worth trying out? Any other ones I should look at?

Just wondering. If I could test some other software out and see if it works or not, that'd be an easy way for me to tell if it's something wrong with steam or just something wrong with our connection.

Anyone here played this shit? Its an offshoot of Project Reality, I love it but it has some mighty big flaws.

The whole Radio/HAB system is the most retarded shit I've ever seen.
Whoever did with the vehicle physics must have thrown a hotdog down a hallway and used that as their reference.
No way to distinguish a 300 hour player from a 3 hour one.
Most servers basically never have admins on or they just refuse to kick/ban people?
Its so easy to grief one man can take down his own team EASILY if you know what to do, and like I said people running servers won't do shit.
Teams are ALWAYS stacked and there's no auto-balance or even a simple team scramble between matches.

But I can't stop playing this shit, its addicting somehow.

What would you like out of it? I just found out 2K confirmed they were working on the next one all the way back in December. I just started replaying infinite after having the strange urge to revisit Columbia. I played through it once when it came out and never again which is why I say strange but I'm taking a much stronger liking to it this time. Columbia has a really wonderful air to it that I never really took the time to breath in because I think I was still angry about it not being in rapture the first time I played. I just loved rapture so much.
Where could they go after infinite?

Anyone still plays Diablo 1 with mods?

What mods would you recommend?

Personally not sure if I will play Diablo 1 in the near future since PoE is stealing all my attention now,
but just out of curiosity!

The boss from Diablo 2 act 1 was actually meant to be included in Diablo 1 as a special quest boss. The quest never made it into the final version of the game, but thanks to the Belzebub mod the quest has been faithfully recreated.

faaaaawk u, diablo 1 always had the better atmosphere, characters and music. maybe I just have a soft spot for it too.

to the OP, I have a love/hate with the beezlebub mod. on one hand my ocd hates how the dungeon levels are reset everytime instead of classic diablo where your progress in the level is saved, and the amount of enemies can be kind of cheap (entering level 11 and like 30 lightning lizard bitches are on top of me, as I try to spam potion and spells, the game didnt like me cheesing by leaving and reentering the level, so it crashes, blegh). on the other hand theres so many quality of life improvements to make up for it, as well as a crazy amount of cut content. like, I’m amazed I ever played the original. all in all if youre a fan of this kind of game I couldn’t recommend jf enough.

And thats before all the publicity. I wonder what Steam will do about it, cause on the one hand they cant argue with profit, but on the other hand its probably awkward to be selling games that are kind of legally available for free. What do you guys think?
