World of Goo free on Epic Game Store. A puzzle classic everyone should play!

Gone Home free on Humble Bundle the next week (Scroll down). Note, you have to download the binary and backup it yourself - it is not part off your "bought" software at Humble.

It is my plan to not buy any games in 2019, no matter how good a deal it is. The games will always become as cheap or cheaper again, and, well, backlog enough through 2023.

And I want a Nintendo Switch, and about 30 games for it. But that will likely wait until the Switch 2 arrives.

Assassin's Creed Unity (Windows only) free on Ubisoft store the next week, due to a certain fire. Note, I couldn't get the page to work properly, but you can also get the game through the store directly, at 100% off.

#450499 Borderlands 3!

I like GOGs client the best. Simple, to the point, and with excellent filtering options.

I have yet to install the Epic client, but I will someday, because free games gallore. :)

I meant to make a joke out of, thinking it was just something random in the hyperlink. Turns out if you google BLOPS, you get Black OPS.

I am all in on BL3. But man, that was a really bad trailer. Complete random things stuck together, and to me it shows a game this is more in the early stages of being produced, rather than something that should be released within a year.

Uh oh, we might have a situation on our hands here!

DirtyHarry50, did you play BL2 yet, or do we need to have the BL3 release postponed???

#450370 Modern Horror rec's

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 26 March 2019 - 08:15 AM

You'll want to see:
*A Quiet Place
*The House That Jack Built
*Get Out (Same writer and director, as Us - It is even better)
The Autopsy of Jane Doe
10 Cloverfield Lane
*The Conjuring
The Conjuring 2
*Don't Breathe
Lights Out
*The VVitch: A New-England Folktale
The Babadook
*The Cabin in the Woods
La piel que habito
Drag Me to Hell

And that should keep you busy with the biggest hits from the last 10 years I think. :) I've marked the best (IMHO) with a star.

#450334 Answer questions for the Feral newsletter!

The highest my computer can handle!

I can say that I generally tend to turn off AA/FSAA first. It never seems to give me much of a difference on my 27" iMac.

#450326 Might I Pose Another Question?

Spaceship Warlock was also my first guess when reading the description. It did indeed come bundled with several machines, Performa models included.

Funny enough, this game seem to be asked about quite often - It really must have done an impression on most back then - But it was also quite impressively made. Sad it was so short, and ended just when the game started to show purpose!

Tacoma now free on Humble Bundle with a direct download. Oxenfree also free on Epic store as mentioned above.

#450296 Mac Upgrade path for a gamer?

Posted Thain Esh Kelch on 19 March 2019 - 10:59 AM

Thread necromancy!

So with Apples new iMacs announced today, I think I must admit to myself, that my next machine likely won't be a Mac. They are just too expensive without being upgradeable, and I am not paying the equivalent of 1000$ just for a 1TB SSD.

And the Mac Mini is the same story, so that is also a no-go for me. So Hackintosh it is! I will start researching what the status for those are...

#450281 What are your favourite/best Mac games? You wishlist for Mac?

And that's about it I think? :P
