I've been reading some reviews about the new doom and a lot of people are saying it's lost a lot of what older versions of doom is famous for.

 Looks cool, maybe they have a playable demo.

I really want to play the new doom eternal, but a lot of people are suggesting to wait for it to go on sale.
Title: Re: Just cool game stuff
Post by: One Eyed Wonderweasle on March 28, 2020, 05:25:18 pm
 True, I'm waiting.

No honey.  Technically doom eternal would be the 5th chapter in the series.  Doom 2012 is the 4th one.

I've played the new doom for a little while and it's rough.  It starts you off in a combat situation so be prepared to make some configuration changes on the fly.

Ya I can't believe how I have no time anymore. I've been wanting to game (even if short bursts of fun until I get tired). Ever since my mom retired I have been over there every day and haven't even had time to do laundry or dishes :( (well I eat at my mom's lately so .. :P lol)

Post by: One Eyed Wonderweasle on December 03, 2020, 11:14:06 pm
something different.


https://fap-nation.com/out-of-touch/

if you like 80's music and a retro . Just gotta play it to see if it fits your style. but the Hall and Oats reference is not coincidental. an interesting game. not the typical storyline so far. (I'm into Ch 5 so far, has been entertaining so far)

 https://mega.nz/file/46o1SS5T#hC8nDU1Tbm32btpVd7HNMNxlAiK-9UuqkwIQFJDCh5M
hope you enjoy. if your familiar with 80's rock this might be something your up for.

What kind of game is this?  I can't rally find any information on it.
Title: Re: Just cool game stuff
Post by: One Eyed Wonderweasle on December 04, 2020, 03:26:52 am
a virtual novel, was posted on a site I frequent

https://fap-nation.com/
 Have a popup blocker handy. but took my mind off things for a number of hours. (that game) go under games - for windows at the top of the screen. or ask me for a couple of suggestions I have a few fav's. this one was sorta different.
Title: Re: Just cool game stuff
Post by: One Eyed Wonderweasle on December 04, 2020, 03:31:02 am
if I'm usually trying to find info I use the name version number and type f95 into the search. or if you have the game's page up in fap nation. try the info tab near the top.
usually shows Patreon, etc, links.

It is a work in progress visual novel, probably only a single person behind putting together the whole thing. not made by a studio or anything.
here's another place it's posted.

https://story-anon.itch.io/out-of-touch

if you grab it from itch.io make sure you click on the "No thanks just take me to the downloads" link (when it asks for a donation). to get it for free.

https://www.patreon.com/story_anon

developer's Patreon  page probably most info you'll find on it.

There are a few I might be interested in but .... I like creating and designing and customization rather than story line since I never know when I will be in the hospital again. Short games where we can have a good time and get a laugh are great for me for now.

It is definitely more fun with friends! I will be free after apartment inspection Monday morning but have to go to bed early Monday night as I have an appointment  up north at the transplant hospital Tuesday morning at 9am. Wednesday I have a dental appointment and Thursday I have the 2nd CT scan but Friday Feb 26th will be my next free time for gaming again. So if I don't see you Monday to play the game since I will be going to bed early ... I won't be able to play til Friday .. eek. A week from now? That is a long time to wait.

Maybe OneEyed you can find the game at EB Games at Tecumseh Mall? Turns out they open now at 11am since stores have opened again. But when I looked on the site I didn't SEE the game available .. so it seems buy a game card and buy it online with that? Oh but if they don't have that game card in the store ... and you don't have a CC .. hmm... of course the EASY way would be if you have the amount on Steam it is currently CDN $15.50 ($12.30 USD).

Frosty gifted me My Island (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1004270/My_Island/) and Townscraper (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1291340/Townscaper/)

I don't remember what they are about but when people gift me games I do check them out so I am going to .. probably tomorrow or the next day as it is already late now. I just finished fixing a computer problem I had so ... ready for bed. But before I forget the names I thought I would post this here. I will put links later.

None of you will be interested in Townscraper I assume but My Island interested me because it looked like something up my ally. Character creation and open world survival:

The concern I have is if the game has any purpose other than just survival to keep players interested in playing for more than a few days. I will find out now that Frosty gifted it to me! Thanks Frosty!!!!

I also have been gifted NEW WORLD. I hadn't gotten a chance to play it however due to being really sick before and during Christmas and New Years but now that I have been home for a week I plan to check it out. But still recovering so slow getting back into my games for now.

 Hey KT this is the game I was trying to ask you about. I'm just trying to research it myself at the moment but it is at half price at this time for a bit less than a week thought it might be cool from some of the stuff I've seen. I'll probably grab it for myself. was letting you know enough in advance (hopefully) that I might be able to grab you a copy too.
 I just spotted it today but it say's it's on till 18th.

 There are updates since this video. but it looked fairly cool for the price. I did grab it still in the baby steps as far as the learning curve but from what I've seen on it, it's gonna take a while just learning the basics.

Looks interesting. I might like it but I was so busy with Easter and than Divine Mercy that I just got on here now. This week I am less busy (Busy today (Monday) and Wednesday and Friday this week). Did you end up getting the game? I have not been able to call you sadly. Getting that lady voice again.

I will have to come by and watch you play it .. unless your computer can handle streaming it over Discord and me watching it from home :P

I've been wanting to get a VR headset.  But not a priority right now.

 It's cool I've just started to mess with it. a lot of the games that look cool have  higher requirements for the video card than I have gtx 1060 at the moment actually running a 970 till I change my MB over to the ryzen 9. But I might do the MB swap today. Half Life Alyx is half price for a couple more days.

 Now imagine really feeling like your caught in this scenario, It's a game that is supposed to come out later this year. Sorry I should have mentioned first it is a VR title, so imagine it as so.

 There is a "Steam VR Fest" on right now so I think I'm gonna grab Half Life Alyx as my first AAA VR title.

Did you?

I have never experienced VR. Tell me about it.

 I'm not sure describing it really does it any justice, imagine being cut off from sound and audio, an the computer takes over that input with a 3d environment and immersive sound while closing you off from the real world within the gaming environment. Best I can attempt to describe it, But it really has to be experienced.
 It is a different gaming experience to any thing that is not VR. not to say everything VR is a great experience. But there are things that stand out, and even on an older system (Rift Touch) like mine, there are some programs that can get immersive which is the whole point. 
 By the way, when you see game play of a VR title on Youtube it is what is rendered on the monitor not the same as seen though the VR headset, so that footage is not really a fair representation of the game play.   
 It is best put as what is capturable as game play rather than what the player sees.

VR headsets have dual displays, one for each eye.  And it's literally right in your face.  It basically renders the images you see this way to help give you more depth perception.  They are supposed to provide a better, more immersive gaming experience by cutting you off from the outside world.  As Dave tried to explain, it's an experience that you really can't describe with words.  You have to experience it for yourself.  But keep this in mind.  If you are highly susceptible to motion sickness, VR headsets can make you toss your cookies.

  Motion sickness can be brought on in 3d thru a number of factors, and different people have a different tolerance to it. at this point in VR's evolution it is still a factor. one day if certain motion movement restrictions are made into industry wide standards (would probably take years of barf inducing repetitive motion testing to determine  where relative limits exist to even establish a baseline. but there are certain known triggers that most game makers know to steer clear of, for the most part. Unless they are trying to promote a "vomit comet" ride. 
 I personally haven't had a barf inducing moment yet but if I actually did I 'd see if there was a fix for it or failling there would remove the game. Puking's not on my list of things to do while gaming.

I have one of those VR headsets that will take a cell phone.  It's a HooToo Ultra VR Box (https://the-gadgeteer.com/2016/08/21/hootoo-vr-headset-virtual-reality-glasses-review/).  You literally just install your cell phone in to it while it's running a VR game or app.  And one of the apps I had was a demo of a roller coaster.  As you so well put it "vomit comit" ride.  LOL

Not all VR games need you to move around a lot.  But a fair number of them do need plenty of space for you to move around in.

 Most games list if you have to stand or can sit or have minimum space requirements. A fair amount of cool sounding games I've had to over look based on can I play it in my available space. In the future I plan to have a roomier space set out for VR.
 In most games you from one prospective or another control the player in the game. In VR, its more like you take the place of the player in the game.
