I like this new Fallout 3 DLC  

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

Paid tribute to some of the featured artists in my Animal Crossing home

Anyone have recommendations for a modern day Fallout 2/Arcanum experience?  Isometric graphics, open world gameplay.  Theme could be anything as long as it satisfies that immersive, Fallout 2/Arcanum experience.  Definitely not interested in FPS, totally different vibe.

 

EDIT: MAC compatible, please......  I dig out my old windows system periodically to play Fallout 2/Arcanum but I surely ain't gonna do that for a new game.

Divinity: Original Sin might scratch that itch. Or maybe the Shadowrun games?

Thanks, I'll have a look.  Have you played Disco Elysium?  looks interesting.

I have! loved it. Wasn't sure if a combat-free text-heavy game like that was what you were looking for, but it is for sure a fantastic and unique game.

Void Bastards is an underrated gem IMO. It also seems to lend itself to partial Duskers influence, which I still need to try.

Yep, mostly.  Never much cared for the party building aspect but it seems to go with the genre.

I've played most of those.  Fallout 2 is one of my all time favorite games, (Arcanum is up there as well.).  In a perfect world, Van Buren went on to become the real Fallout 3.

Culling the list, looks like I have these choices for MAC play.  A few are Catalina incompatible :(.  Not a deal breaker but certainly a nuisance.  Divinity will probably kill my system.  Pillars and Disco are standing out as most intriguing.  Thanks for the lists.

The gf loooves Plants vs Zombies.

But we also play a lot of co-op games together.
(smaller indie co-op games but also big co-op role-playing games)
I'll list them later.

I somehow got sucked back into Fallout 4 (w/ mods) over the past week. I found some WWII-era weapon mods that work pretty well, plus they're lore-friendly.

Think I'm about to take a brief recess tho and check out the NMS weekend event.

And there are still like 6 games I bought on Steam that I haven't even touched yet.

Finished The Last of Us Part II. I thought it was great, if a little easy. I played on hard and was able to stealth through most of the game. I love stealth so that is cool with me, but expected to be forced into more manic encounters than I was.

Just downloaded You Are Empty and bought Stalin Subway on Steam for half a buck. Two janky 1950s Soviet shooters released back in October 2006. Can't wait.

EDIT: Welp...Windows is telling me that the setup file for the former is unsafe to run, and once the main menu loads up for The Stalin Subway the damn mouse doesn't even work. I was going in expecting janky anyway, but not outright broken. At least it was dirt cheap.

Oh well. If I need my Slav-jank fix, there's always S.T.A.L.K.E.R..

About 40% of the way through The Last of Us Remastered; determined to finally play this through so I can play the sequel.

How far is 40%? I've just met the black guy and his kid. Playing it for the second time, but I've forgotten much more than I remember.

Obsessed with Wipeout, not played it for almost 20 years.

I was playing Omega collection the other night. Hard but pretty.

I also started replaying Wipeout HD Fury last night, dusted off the old PS3 and continued the (almost finished) campaign where I left years ago.

Today as I was playing it occured to me that this really is my absolutely favorite video game of all time. I've played every version of it (except the Vita one), and I'm not ashamed to say that probably some of the best moments in my life involved getting high and playing Wipeout. Damn, I love that game, it just allows me to get in a flow state that is so serene. I really, really hope there'll be a new installment for PS5 eventually.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
