This is actually so very interesting. I've asked her to re-upload, gotta try this.

Fishos question was interesting too, I've never thought of that myself. Considering I'll be making a serious game project in the near future (with a team ofcourse), I'll be sure to explore that aspect.

I don't play since 4 or 5 years. I logged in some months ago, I saw that all the free quests were completed and I logged out
Odd, they didn't add much free quests in the last few years , but they did a few.

Also, theres the new task system, which is half way between achievements to get and mini-quests.
Just random things to do splattered about the world, random spins on that wheely thing each day etc.

I guess it does it irritate if your not a member though with a lot of areas off limits.

No, sorry to get you excited, its just the GBA game emulated pretty exactly.
I meant the in-game upgrades that samus gets. I like the speed-boast thingy.

Well that's sad
Metroid fusion is indeed a good game, try Zero mission, you get the upgrades in a different order, it gives you a new point of view.

Just finished playing weeks ago Motorstorm RC for Vita. The game is great for that platform, addicted and in a very low price.

Psychonauts - That Linux version is still in development. Needs a patch from the bugtracker site to fix crashes. There's no easy way to switch the displayed language. Getting it to work in a multi-monitor setup is a bit of a chore. And then there's that PulseAudio problem that refuses to have ALSA working for 32-bit applications, which forces the game to fall back to OSS, and you need the PulseAudio OSS emulation to get the sound working (padsp)... and then there's no music outside of cutscenes, and the textures are all glitchy in the first level. Not to mention the game captures your mouse and keyboard completely, no way to alt+tab out of it or even just adjust the volume with the meta keys on the keyboard. Meh, I hope this improves

Bastion - everything works out of the box, even the multi-monitor TwinView setup is recognized properly. Though it still misses an easy in-game language switcher.

Humble Bundle ups the ante - holy crap! Now also with Braid, Super Meat Boy and Lone Survivor. Only 6 more days to go - remember that the Linux version of Super Meat Boy is not available outside of Humble Bundle as of now.

No idea what that game actually is, I just listed it for completeness. I was more concerned about the other too, which are, rumors have it, quite good.

We need more moderation to get rid of all the spam, it's really making a mess out of the forum.

Last game I played is Ultima IV because it is available for free on Good Old Games, it has been for about a year, I think. I also installed the music patch. Never played any game like this before, it's quite hard getting used to it when every action requires you to use a different cryptic key on your keyboard in order to perfom it. Then I got terribly lost and teleported all over the place, and now I need a map to even find back home to a place where I would be able to heal myself properly, without just dying in the wilderness.

How did people play these games without the internet?

GoG needs to sale spare time! Too many great games too cheap and tempting :P

Anyway, playing Portal2 and Skyward Sword still - not much gaming time so I am really behind

As for mods, I could assign more, but its a patch. Gota figure out a more permanent solution.

I bought a Nintendo DsI XL recently and the first game I got was Broken Sword 1 - Director's cut.

what kind of remake is that? I played it in the past, but In the end I got back to the original game for some reason. Now I finished the whole remake... and... what the hell?

One year ago I wrote about Broken Sword in this thread

Quote:
“He looked at me as if I'd farted at a funeral." is a quote that should remain in the history of videogames.
That sentence has been removed in the remake. Genious.

Quote:
"YOU can die (meaning game over), and when you do not only you get to see your crivelled wtih bullets body dripping with blood, but you can also see it thrown down the water by the bad guys, or see the undertaker covering your hole."
You can't die anymore! The real exciting thing about this game is that you were always afraid to do something wrong and die, you had to think quickly or you'd die, in some parts of the game you really had that sense of fear. Now you can't die, George will just say "That could be dangerous" or MOVE BY HIMSELF. This remake sucks... I know this way also children can play BS1 but BS isn't meant to be for children. Stick with the original version if you can.

Awesome coincidence. Just recently I played the first Broken Sword for the first time, and found it really awesome. And just today I downloaded the director's cut.

Streggy - what about the scene
Spoiler:
in Syria, where Khan shoots you if you don't shake his hand with a buzzer and then quickly jump off the cliff? How did they design this scene in a way which won't enable dying?

Or the shooting scene in the train near the ending?

Spoiler:

The train scene is just stupid, makes the whole train trip useless. Wherever you click or if you just wait a few seconds, George will pull the brake lever automatically. The part in Syria when Khan is about to kill you if you try to use any other items George will say something like "No way" and you can try any other item until you click on the buzzer. You don't need to click on the cliff, he will jump on his own.

Ridiculous uh? Next time (in a few years when I happen to forget most of the stuff ) I'll be sure to play the origianal version.

I actually preferred both TP and Majoras Mask on replays - but neither could have existed without OoT. OoT was a revolutionary game on which so many later games were based.

Spirit Tracks was terrible! (well, for a zelda game)
