Because I was dying to play this game (Knight Lore), but being too poor to buy a ZX Spectrum computer, I designed one (had to, the original ZX Spectrum was having all the logic inside a proprietary chip called ULA) and built my own clone when I was about 18. That built unintentionally became a game changer in my CV for my whole to come carrier. Games are definitely good for something! :mrgreen:



That game is running on a Z80 at 3.5MHz (0.0035 GHz) 8 bits 64kB processor. Both the video and the sound are generated by the processor (no VGA card, just a dual port RAM area and a 1 bit on/off for sound). That game was very impressive for that time, it was the '80s. :D



About a decade later, during the 90's, Half-Life arrived. Probably the most mind blowing game ever considering the year was 1998, and the PC hardware was very lame compared to today's standards.



That full 5 minutes long intro was a complete shock, then the anomaly experiment came, wow, that was gorgeous!
No game ever before has had anything even remotely alike.

Just received This Game today. Also, I am in the middle of a long Gettysburg campaign on Vassal. Not much into computer games, although I play Super TuxKart once in a while.

I bought RG350 a year ago to play wherever I am. It has some kind of dingoo-linux preinstalled, jz4770 CPU @1Ghz, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 3.5 inch IPS screen at 320x240 resolution

Metro Exodus

After the drama that was the Epic game store, it came back to Steam and it was announced they were working on a native version. That came out not too long ago



beautiful game and I only have it set to medium and all the great things (raytracing) disabled as my aging card is reaching the end

I was hoping RTX-3070 was back in stock before this came out but between the miners and the chip shortage :(


I might replay once I get a card that is newer than 7+ years and wind everything up

I play Catan. And Dixit. And some card games.
It's fun!

Especially dixit is great for meeting new people; very casual friendly (you only need 1 person who actually knows the rules to keep track of the scores, the rest is good to go with a 1 sentence long briefing), and you get to learn something about each other by osmosis.


Used to play wow, got some good memories from TBC (was a total noob and enjoyed it) and WotLK (was a power player raiding with a bunch of filthy casuals and blowing up pretty much anyone in BGs).
Watched some Shadowlands arenas recently.... Oh, boy, it's a totally different game now. I liked the fast paced games and high pressure games. Now it seems to be all about trading cooldowns.... It's a really weird show to see when a mage casts fireballs, standing still, while getting pounded by a warrior, and nobody is losing any health at all, because they are all outside of their kill windows.
Like, seriously, WTF?
