Topics I've Started

Warcraft 3 remaster, sorry 'reforged'

02 November 2018 - 05:55 PM

HD remaster of WC3 coming next year if you like that kind of thing....

Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Thoughts?

28 September 2018 - 08:48 AM

I'd be interested to know your thoughts on this. For those who don't know, it's an Infinity Engine-like RPG (think Baldur's Gate, Pillars of Eternity etc.) with a swathe of new mechanics and game modes that I haven't even scratched the surface of yet that uses the D&D 3.5/Pathfinder ruleset (...which I am largely unfamiliar with. The Pathfinder bit, not 3.5).

Immediate thoughts...the base install is 43 (count 'em) Gb, so ouch, and performance is only middling on my late 2015 4K iMac (2048 x 1152, stuff set to 'medium'). Now I'll be honest, I've literally just started the game, but it hasn't grabbed me yet.

Is anyone else out there playing it?

More Diablo stuff inc.

Everyone* thought that the Diablo franchise was dead cos Diablo 3 turned out to be a giant stinker**,but no! - there's unannounced Diablo stuff under development at Blizzard.

Your guess is as good as mine at this stage - Switch conversion? Druid DLC? Diablo IV? - but there it is.

*not everyone

MGS "Endless Space 2 - Collection" Hmm....

10 July 2018 - 08:39 PM

So, according to the MGS page,  Sega's Endless Space 2 - Collection

"Will NOT activate in the following countries: GB, SE, NO, DK, FI, AL, AD, AR, AT, BE, BO, BA, BR, BG, CL, CN, CO, HR, CY, CZ, EC, EE, FR, DE, GR, GY, HU, IS, IE, IT, JP, KP, KR, LV, LI, LT, LU, MK, MT, MC, NL, PY, PE, PL, PT, RO, SM, SK, SI, ES, SR, CH, TW, TR, UY, VA, VE, AX, RS, ME, FO, FK, GF, EU, GG, GI, GL, GP, HK, IM, JE, MF, MQ, NC, PF, PM, RE, SJ, YT"

Maybe it's easier to list the countries it will activate in?

Jeff Vogel announces new game: 'Queen's Wish: The Conqueror'

30 May 2018 - 06:25 AM

Jeff Vogel, boss of Spiderweb Software, indy developer superhero, toymaker and all-round good egg has announced a Kickstarter campaign for his new, isometric RPG Queen's Wish: The Conqueror, with a primary fundraising goal of $30k.

'Queen's Wish' will be set in an entirely new game world, but fans of Vogel's work will know what to expect; isometric, old-school, party-based roleplaying, with a massive amount of content and decidedly unhurried gameplay. Details of the new game are a bit thin at present, but 'fort building' of some kind is promised and with the Kickstarter necessary to fund new art.

(I should add that I'm not affiliated with this project in any way, but Jeff's a splendid fellow who's been feeding Mac gamers for over a quarter of a century now).

Update: More details on Jeff's blog here ; the Kickstarter is funded, and the first stretch goal (an iPhone port) has been reached.

Update #2: Stretch goal 2 has been reached (more in-game content).
