Excited to play Moon, got the physical translated version coming on the Switch this week. I've been interested in playing this game since I was a kid, as it seems like a unique off-beat RPG akin to things like Earthbound. The developer has a huge catalogue of very weird games to their name.
Not huge into RPGs as I get older, so hoping it will hold my attention.

This game?

Yeah, it originally came out on the Super Famicom and I always kinda wanted to play it. Hopefully it holds up.

I finally started playing Stardew Valley a few days ago, so far it's been a lot of fun.

Does it have actual story, or you just roam around and do stuff?

There isn't really an overarching story for the game. Different characters have their own little stories, and the story of the player is whatever you make it.

Wonder how long new players will keep up with Baldur's gate 3,   14 yr old Tp4 might have had the kind of patience for it, but not today, and it'd be really interesting to see whether young people has longevity with this type of game.

Tp4 watched the youtube for 3 minutes and was already bored.

Same here, I dont like multiplayer, always played singles my whole life (apart from Duke Nukem 3D in high school with friends on lunch breaks).

I always wanted to play and finish first and second Fallout, never finished it back then.

Aah, back to basics - fantastic game, I played it a lot back in a days. Is it playable now on modern PCs?
I may try it.

You would be amazed by the engine improvements to the Dark engine. I think it applies to Thief as well? Not sure.

You will have to do some research into the "NewDark engine," but what it does is remarkable. Executes natively on modern, 64-bit Windows NT-based systems like Windows 7 and 10. Higher resolutions, true-colour, and better lighting are just some of the improvements. Support for extensive mod packages.

If you're lucky, maybe the new engine is included in the copies that are sold on-line today.

Also, look up something called "The Dark Mod:"


It's a recreation of Thief 1 in a more modern engine. [Not to be confused with the semi-official "New Dark" engine for canonical Thief 1.]

Fallout 1 and 2 can be run in high-resolution on modern systems:


You can download the required files, the "Vanilla Patch," here:

I may try it.

I installed the GOG version and it runs fine on Windows 10. Apparently because it comes packaged with the NewDark engine by default.

Try Fallout New Vegas or Fallout 4.
Vegas is a bit long in the tooth but has a great story, 4 is more modern but not as well written.

As for 76,
It is open world multi player but unlike GTA you are penalized for trying to kill other players and little incentive to do so. I've got several hours in now and only one person took a single pot shot at me to try and get me to play but due to how the game mechanics work it did nothing. In default mode, players can shoot each other but the damage is super low unless you shoot back, shooting back triggers pvp and you can kill each other without penalty. If you do not shoot back they will need to dump a ton of ammo to kill you and if they do they're dubbed a murderer and a bounty is placed on them and everyone goes on a hunt for them. It's quite a breath of fresh air from that perspective, I'm just not sure it's a good game yet.

Your gun is severely nerfed when shooting someone who refuses to go PVP with you, I'm not sure there's enough money or ammo to make serial killing possible unless you grind away for a few thousand hours first.
Ammo is limited as is money, unlike FO4, there's no easy way to get either quickly.

If you're going to go the ('modern') Fallout route, you may wish to try this website:

As you can see, for example, Fallout: NV is significantly discounted right now.

Broke down and picked up Baldur's Gate 3

Any game done by a small indie team that has AAA studios complaining about how it sets a bad precedent for the gaming industry because of how much content and production value their game has, I am happy to support at full-price.

I wouldn't consider Larian Studios indie or small (they have like 450 employees so I wouldn't say they are large either), but yeah it's really weird that devs just undermine other devs for making great quality games. Devs were doing the same thing with Elden Ring.

It's like they don't understand why their games are so mediocre (rushed development, lack of optimization and bug fixes, overworked staff) and act like these practices are good for the industry and their games. Keep in mind it's a minority of devs saying this, but still.

Oh my god, Starfield is possibly the most boring AAA game I have ever played. I played 3 hours of what was basically a visual novel. People just talking at me endlessly for 3hrs straight.
Refunded.

and people are saying it 'gets good' 100hrs in, **** THAT!

Oh my god, Starfield is possibly the most boring AAA game I have ever played. I played 3 hours of what was basically a visual novel. People just talking at me endlessly for 3hrs straight.
Refunded.

and people are saying it 'gets good' 100hrs in, **** THAT!

Most boring game of 2023

Seems like another triple AAA game that doesn't live it up to hype. My friend "got it early" and he said it was fine so idk, it never really interested me anyway and was never gonna buy it. But since it is Bethesda I'd imagine it would janky and kinda boring.

It could get better, especially being Bethesda, Fallout 76 is better than it was on release by quite a lot, not saying it's as good as other Fallout, but the reviews show it's gotten a lot better.

At any rate, never pre-order and it you aren't sure, it's not like the old days where you had a review or anything, go look at some footage of people playing and see how it looks.

People keep downvoting the hell out of me in r/games because i say that it's not as good as you remember playing it and i keep getting proven right. I will never play any skyrim or bethesda open world game . The only one that i like is Spider man and that's mainly because of the web slinging and the spider man fantasy

That was me with fallout 4, played for a bit and found it so uninteresting, maybe it gets better later on but not invested enough to play again. Never understood why people loved it so much. I will probably check out new vegas eventually and maybe skyrim but 4 really put me off playing Bethesda open world games.

I've played Fallout 3, NV, 4 and 76, after multiple play throughs I've noticed it's hit or miss, not per game, but even play through.
You can have a great experience one time through and next time just get super bogged down and get nowhere and just become disinterested all because of how you start. On 3, which I hated, I had no idea what I was doing and stumbled into some of the most difficult areas on the map and kept dying (I've never played it again), on a second run through New Vegas, thinking I had it figured out I spent a long time grinding levels right from the start, got bored and made a beeline to Vegas only to die and get bored again. You can over think them, you can take a wrong turn or just get so tied up in all the side quests you forget to make progress on the main story, 76 is especially bad for this.

It's great these games are so open and not run on rails but at the same time it leaves a lot of room for you to fall off the rails or stuck deciding what to do.

It is, my point is that it's also open for you completely screw up the story and have it fall flat.

Super Mario Wonder, despite all odds and everything I've disliked in the past, is actually a really great game. It is the level design and constant tweaks on mechanics it uses to actually build up the player's skill in each subsequent level that kept me playing. Very fun and creative level design.
The graphics are still uninspired dog****, like every other New Mario game where everything just looks like an asset the level designers grabbed out a file folder, and the price is absurd. But other than those factors, SMW is a lovingly crafted and creative game with fun and engaging mechanics and level design that will keep you wanting to see what the next level will throw at you.

I do hate those stupid positivity flowers that serve zero purpose other than to almost snidely cheer you on. That's some baby ****.
