Ran into a bug where it would start corrupting your save files after 52 saved games from the same campaign. In theory you can fix them with a hex editor but I have not succeeded yet. :shrug:

Moving from one buggy Ubi Soft game to another.

Kind of funny seeing how the original uninstaller accidentally removing system files morphed into people believing the game would reformat your hard drive. It is honestly running decently well for me fully patched from Windows 98.

Game is quite repetitive, so I took a break for a couple of months, but I am back at it now.

I have a house rule that I only rest when I find beds, but I really had to fight for them in that last screenshot.

If I had found the overpowered undead beatstick in August I probably would not have burned out.

I had to scroll to the top to reacquaint myself with your current journey. I was betting it was Bauldur's gate or something.

At some point during the development of the Quake engine, they had various ideas of how the game should be. None of these lasted long though and nothing was clearly defined until in December 1995 when someone said "let's just make another Doom" and they all agreed. For example, apparently Romero wanted a medieval first person melee role playing game, not just another shooter. That might explain that a huge chunk of Quake levels and assets are medieval. Original Ogre had horns on its head, as well as axe and shield in hands in early screenshots, for example: https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/quake ... 1216074520. At one point they thought about making it about time travel, so briefly it was supposed to be called TimeQuake, although that might've been also due to some brief name copyright issue. Either way, Adrian Carmack created a bunch of "Aztec" style textures, which ended up not being used in the original game at all. Rogue Entertainment did use some of those (with more work and editing done on them of course) for a couple of Episode 2 levels in Dissolution of Eternity.

Parts of Daikatana's idea can be traced to those days for sure. Even that title itself comes from John Carmack's D&D campaign.

Hey. :)

I've been pretty much obsessed with Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. 600+ hours logged into the game and have been playing since late last year. It's a fun action / RPG game but it's honestly not very well balanced, especially when it comes to the postgame content. So much grinding and the loot based system is questionable. Other than that, not much else has been happening.

Hope everyone has been well. I know I've been inactive but I'm not dead yet lol.

Take care and Happy Easter. :D
