Quote from: albrecht on January 16, 2016, 08:24:25 PMNo kidding. I haven't gamed in some time (have a few on my 'smart' phone but stuff like scrabble, chess, and card games) aside from the old games (Vectrex and stand-up with 'super' chip. And those less and less actually. Though a late night marathon with friends sometimes is done after a challenge and beers.) But I never was a master and, to me, most of the old games (again, to me) you could never win. Missile Command on Atari comes to mind instantly. No matter how 'good' you were your cities die. Game over. Are all these 'steam' or whatever PS4 games something that you can win? It would seem, from watching younger relatives, that one can save stuff, have unlimited lives, and so forth. Not realistic- although the graphics are--- holy shit- I really thought it was a REAL baseball game on one of his for a second!
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on January 16, 2016, 08:46:18 PM... winning for some of the better arcade players in the early days meant breaking the game in some way. I believe both Pac Man and Donkey Kong do this at some point...
Quote from: zeebo on January 17, 2016, 12:09:38 AMRight, the final screen of both of these can't quite fit into memory so they're somewhat garbled. I think in pac-man like half the screen is blank but still operational - the final challenge towards that perfect game. Check out the fun documentary King of Kong for a scene showing Donkey Kong's final screen.

Quote from: trostol on January 25, 2016, 01:11:12 AMFallout 4? each character have its own save files separate from the other character or are they all together?
Quote from: norland2424 on January 25, 2016, 01:12:39 AMWhat are you asking?
Quote from: trostol on January 25, 2016, 01:22:14 AMok..first char..has saves..i am making a new character..does it have its own saves listed separately or will all the saves be mixed together..ie does each character have its own save profile
Quote from: norland2424 on January 25, 2016, 01:27:07 AMEach character has its own save profile, its like mass effect, when you are on the start menu and click on load it will let you switch from characters
Quote from: trostol on January 25, 2016, 01:28:12 AMahjh..kool..thats exactly what i was wondering...i really need to get back to ME lol

Quote from: Jackstar on January 25, 2016, 01:25:51 AMI am having trouble getting into Witcher 3. I want to like it, and I certainly admire it, but every time I turn it on, I just stand around playing Gwent.Help me out. Where's the nearest +12 sword?

Quote from: Evil Twin Of Zen on February 01, 2016, 04:09:36 PMok. so.... i've been using Steam for a few years now. mostly for the elder scrolls series and some fps games. now having quit WOW after years and years of playing it, i was in the market for something new. Tera was recommended as a fun one to play so i started an account. the character models (female)...... i'm so going to jail.
Quote from: trostol on February 01, 2016, 04:18:10 PMTera wasnt bad...if you like star trek..STO isnt bad at all really..in fact its one of the top free MMO's
Quote from: Evil Twin Of Zen on February 01, 2016, 04:54:37 PMi have had that one (STO) since it's release when it was sub based. have not played it for awhile. tried Aion...blah. age of conan unchained...blah. reinstalled neverwinter after a long time away and have not checked it out yet.don't get me wrong on wow. i was with it since 2004. burning crusade was ok, but all the latest expansions slowly killed it for me and i gave it up. people became very unfriendly over time.i've seen so many of my favorite online games killed by developers. right now Tribes Ascend is my biggest rant worthy game in that regard.
