So should I buy the Horizons pack?
I'm about 20 hours in and I like it so far, but I've heard about the GRIND. I'm mostly coming back for great HOTAS and VR support.

5-10 years will fly, like they usually do


It's a scam because they aren't literally sold as jpegs. They sell the idea that you will actually get them in the "game". Of course, the game is never coming, so in practice they are jpegs.



Holy fuck I forgot all about star citizen. I forgot about it because that game is basically a fucking scam. The game is only going to be released once the scam money dries up and they are forced to deliver a real product.


what do you mean? it's in alpha stage right now, and you can very well play it. Some of those ships are concept - yes, but the other half is in the game and you can try them out and fly. My concern is that they've said that all ship ownership will be wiped on release (maybe I got it wrong) ships that people paid for

You know it's going to happen. People walk over gamers any chance they get and they've been getting a lot lately.

Discuss the Nintendo Switch and its games here. Feel free to share friend codes with other wizzies.

The only reason I have a switch is because the early models are hackable and I can pirate all games,other than that,is not really worth it.


>friend codes
dang nintendo still has that?

god 3d printed stuff always looks like shit. i bet they are charging $20 for that.


A family person got a second one to crack and is letting me use the other. I bought myself Genso Wanderer and he's not permitted to play it. I'm going to steal the switch when I move out

With Steam's proton, I have been playing Ducktales
I have also played Super Tux, Minecraft, and Fran Bow.


I second steam's proton.

Im so lazy I could never be bothered to learn how Wine works but with steam proton I just right-click menu the games name in my steam library and check the check box to enable proton compatibility and it works.

It doesnt work 100% with all games but I imagine it eventually will as it is constantly updated. Id rather deal with a few non working games or bugs than use spyware windows 10


proton is beautiful when it works. i just tried out the ace attorney trilogy and it runs great, no tweaks required. it's such a nice experience to just install and play a windows game as if it was native linux. i've heard you can even play witcher 3 on it, that's amazing.


Looks like the proton shills have arrived.


after a fair amount of work, i've managed to get skyrim se working under proton, with probably somewhere around 100 mods running (including skse). it seems like if you're willing to put in the time, you can craft an experience that's practically identical to playing on windows. i chose to install the mods manually, but it seems like getting the vortex mod manager running properly would be possible too. mod organizer 2 seems like it might not be supported as well atm.

anyway, it's all nice and set up now, i have desktop shortcuts to run loot and wrye bash under my skyrim prefix, the "play" button on steam launches skse, and i *think* i successfully solved the audio issues that i was having initially. more testing needed of course but right now it all just seems…perfect. the performance is great too, and i'm using plenty of hd textures and scripts and such.

well, there is one annoyance - the game likes to crash when i tab out.

i hope to get no man's sky set up next, i had it working in the past and i expect it to be really easy. i have the gog version, so i'll run it in lutris with their custom wine/proton hybrid thing - but, i'm waiting for the next patch or two, because i've read it's in a bit of an unstable spot after the "beyond" update. i do hope it gets a native port eventually.

I'm trying to get good at this. Played as a kid a lot and felt like trying my hand again. Still suck of course but the animation and music is so endearing to me I don't even care.

What about you wiz? What are you playing? Does it suck so bad you'll be posting on the dropped games soon?

Black desert online. This game is a grindfest, but i like it.


It has shitloads of micro transactions and a p2win aspect to it, doesn't it?


Well kind of but not really. I can play it just fine without spending my precious money.

Better than the first cinematic intro trailer from 2013.




War Thunder: Do not hurry (by Anna German)


old trailer was better imo

Anyone here play MTG Arena? I'm surprised there isn't a thread.

How do you feel about MTG Arena?

I've only ever played MTG for the solo "campaign" (series of PvE battles against AI with light story attached), and the additional challenge/puzzle battles, both of which can be found in the once yearly versions of MTG (2012-2015 + Duels). A shame there isn't a really good solo oriented card game, based around exploring a fantasy world (such as the one found in MTG itself), expanding/upgrading your deck, while also following a story and developing your character along the way. MTG as a strictly PvE focused RPG would be wonderful and is all I've ever wanted it to be. All the competitive nonsense against other contemptible humans that MTG is actually based around can be flushed down the toilet forever, please & thank you.


I can't stand planeswalkers or any of the game mechanics relating to them


I hate how planeswalkers make basically every deck better.

Characters should be legendary creatures. Planeswalkers is a nice idea but a mistake in its execution.

Other one's basically full, so might as well create a new one.

File: 1565484090301.jpg (36.79 KB, 480x360, 4:3, Phantasy Star.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

About a year ago I tried to play Phantasy Star for the Master System completely by myself without looking anything up. I had a pack of graph paper and did detailed maps of several dungeons and towns but at about half way through I lost heart and gave up. I showed those maps to my brother who at the time showed no interest at all in it. Then 2 weeks ago he came home to spend some time with us and asked me to play Phantasy Star with him, pretty much out of the blue. I readily agreed, but since he was only staying for another couple of days we decided to use a FAQ and play the entire game in 24 hours. I had a blast playing this with him. Now he is off again for another year. Before he left I asked if he would play Phantasy Star 2 next year with me but apparently he didn't like the grind that much to repeat the dose. I thought maybe we could do this a tradition thing, we'll see. I'm glad I even got to play the first one with him.
The grinding was very intense, you kill thousands of monsters and some of things you have to do are pretty close to be completely random. Good thing we had a FAQ for it, otherwise finishing it in a single sitting would be impossible. Back when I tried going without help it took me 3 days to map a single dungeon. Even playing with another person (one actually controlling everything and another one with the faq in hand doing all the navigation part for the dungeons) we got lost a few times. It's a very old school game but it has such charm with its music and graphics you end up continuing to push forward to see what's going to happen next. The story is pretty straight forward (an evil guy named Lassic killed your brother and now you're out for revenge) and the gameplay is pretty much you pushing attack every single time and healing once in a while. Magic is limited and only really useful to heal and in a couple of bosses. It's hard to pinpoint why this game is so engaging and fun for me. It just throws you in this world and you have to figure everything out for yourself. The first half is very difficult because you're about the weakest thing alive in that particular planetary system and even if you grind for a few hours the monsters never really cease to be highly dangerous. It takes so many points to level up you'll be looking to purchase or find any decent gear and equipment the game has to offer and going into all sorts of dangerous places to get it. The music is repetitive but very, very good, the enemies look interesting and tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

By the way, someone ripped the audio files from the game and post and released for download if anyone is interested.


Your post convinced me to give it a shot if it goes on sale this Halloween. It's always sad when a game gets mixed reviews for stupid reasons.



Yeah, I'm pretty sure I did everything. I literally looked through the miscellaneous quests, one by one, and just did them. I went through every single town to do their quests and saved the Morag Tong for the last quests.

Holy crap, I forgot I didn't do the grandmaster writs. However, I did do it before posting this, so I will officially end my Morrowind career here, on a high note.

I'm actually going to finish Oblivion next, and after coming back to Oblivion from Morrowind, I REALLY miss teleportation and levitation. Mountains are such a pain now. However, I've explored Oblivion a lot more thoroughly than Morrowind and feel way more at home in Cyrodil. I do appreciate the game a lot more, even though I seriously hate most of it. It's what Morrowind would have been if not for the stagnant leveling system, the alchemy exploit, and unlimited training. If those three things were out of Morrowind, I would have hated Morrowind a lot more.


Never really had a problem getting lost in dungeons, it was the not knowing what tje fuck to do next to progress that killed the game for me and the #1 reason I hate playing jrpg.
Just awful game design where there are parts where unless you have a detailed guide there is nothing in game to even hint at what the hell you are supposed to do. A problem that even appears in modern jrpg.
One that I never run into in western crpg.
I made pretty good progress in that game too, but after hours of just wondering around I got bored and quit.
