    I thought it was just me... D1 looks better, feels better than D2. I keep returning to it.

    I may have missed it on here but for anyone into puzzles, vast sprawling machines and process optimisation Opus Magnum is one of the best 'programming' games I've played for a while. The basic premise is simple - you have a few inputs and a required output. Your goal is to put together a machine to make the output. You get rated on cost (related to number of parts and their complexity), efficiency (number of mechanical operations) and area taken up. The game has had me and others spending hours tweaking the machine's operation or layout to try to shave a couple of cycles off the run or get away with one less piece.

    Plus you can export your machine running as a gif which makes a great background.

    I've set the wayback machine to the late 90's. Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. I'd forgotten how fun that was.
    At first the graphics were poor but a little searching on the internet, a small edit to the ini file, and Voila! The graphics are surprisingly good for such an old game.

    Please don't go. The Drones need you. They look up to you.

    A few months ago, I complained to Bungie that the windows in the Cabal base were too clean. I replayed the game and now they are dirty. Nice touch.

    Are those the bridge windows on the way to engage the Bond Brothers?

    Before I feel asleep I realized I have to hang up my world of tanks helmet for a while or for good. Right now I have several things to do and I tend to follow patterns sometimes healthy sometimes not so to break this pattern I need to break one. Also I can only sit at this chair so long at a time and staring into the screen is hard on my eyes without some new glasses.

    Won't be playing any civ 3 for a while. Almost won the latest game and when I tried to load a saved game the files were corrupt.

    I hadn't played video games to a meaningful degree in, oh, around 14 years, but a couple of months ago I got a Nintendo Switch and have been playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I beat Ganon, the Big Bad, last week, but I'm going to fart around in the game some more. It's huge, and really quite beautiful.

    Well I have been off World of tanks for a while, fun at first but it became a chore. Last night won at civ 3 but then it crashed so probably off that for a while. Have an old game called the Ur Quan masters on my machine fun at times. But I will probably off gaming for a while a lot of projects that have to get done.

    Civilization is one of my favorite games. Upgraded to Civilization IV, but have not gone to V, as I've heard from several sources the IV is better.

    Sometimes I play Minesweeper while I'm eating. I ignore the clock and just try to survive 27 mines on a 9×9 board so that ⅓ of the squares are mines. I usually lose.

    I certainly like Civilization IV better, but Christopher Tin's Baba Yetu (Used as the main theme song) is no small part of that. It's one of my favorite pieces of music, and in fact, my wife and I walked down the aisle after our wedding ceremony to it.

    I don't finish video games often anymore; I generally play until I lose interest, which is usually long before the 60-80 hour mark that many modern games require. However, I've been on a tear, and played through Sekiro, then played through Spider-Man, and then over the weekend finished God of War.

    What I'm trying to "play" recently is Tom Petty's Learning to Fly.... Actually just four chords, but the phrasing is critical. And I'm playing it on my jumbo Guild F-50R, which is every bit a match for that Gibson SJ200 Petty is playing....

    I haven't played much guitar since we moved the piano over from my parents' place when they downsized into a condo, but it was always fun playing Petty's stuff. I think a lot of it was pretty simple on the surface, but what made his stuff special was his feel and execution.

    Just a heads up. If you are bored and have internet access and a printer, you can print off a lot of old games from the 80s from the Dwarfstar website.

    These games aren't public domain or anything, they are just very unlikely to go back into print so the company has offered them as pdf downloads. I am not associated with them in any way, I just thought it would be nice to share considering the current state of affairs. Go play a game.

    Having a go at Far Cry 3 but the wildlife keeps killing me.
    It's far more deadly than the enemy!

    Love the Far Cry series. Have played them all, except the DLC (almost new game) add-ons to 4.

    Just have the last mission to finish in New Dawn, but otherwise they are some of the few games I've played to the end; 1 and 2 I've even played through a few times.

    I'd almost do 3 again now, picking the opposite choices in the bits where you chose who to follow ... but there is one Far Cry I've not completed; Primal. Just found it hard to get into. Now that I'm locked in for a few weeks, it's on the list to try again.

    (Just remembered I didn't finish Blood Dragon; couldn't get past the stupid challenge levels before the last mission.)

    Recently bought a two pack of Wolfenstein games on steam, so maybe them if I still can't get into Primal.
    Measure once, cut twice. Practice makes perfect.

    Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

    On Far Cry 4
    More or less the same as Far Cry 3 but in the Himalayas.
    Wildlife even more deadly. eagles swoop on you without warning and do more damage than an assault rifle and if a Rhino charges you might as well just reload.

    Like 3 it completely spoils the game. What's the point of spending ages working in to a perfect ambush or sniping position to get it ruined by a random spawning animal?

    Yeah, being killed by cassowaries was weird. Been a while since I played 3 & 4, but I don't remember that being too much of an issue. The random spawning animal can be an issue, but scouting for current animals becomes part of it.

    As you level-up they become less of a problem.


    That part gets worse in New Dawn. They do a kind of RPG leveling up thing, where animals and enemies are just harder to kill until you level up. So early on I was being killed by honey badgers that would take a full magazine of machine gun ammo to the face and not die. That I hated.

    (edit: I think the term is "bullet sponge".)

    It's love/hate with me and Far Cry. I usually start with the hate, then grow to love. (Argh, the infinitely re-spawning checkpoints in 2 !!! Hated them!!! Then I found 3 onwards started feeling empty as I progressed ...)

    World's most dangerous bird. But only because birds aren't that dangerous. Unless you count choking on one, in which case chicken is the world's most dangerous bird.
