What games are you playing?
 
Hi guys what games are you playing this November :) If we go back to 1992 then some of us would probably play Alien 3, Lotus 3 or Alien Breed Special edition and Pinball Dreams and Cracy cars 3 ( cool game i think ) and Adams family
I still play those games from time to time :)

A long time since I played Amiga games. Skyrim, Starcraft 2, Civilization V are the ones I spend the most gaming time on today, looking forward very much to GTA 5...

I was playing Dungeon Master a few weeks ago (a very difficult dungeon by meynaf from EAB), but right now it's been Torchlight and a bunch of bullet hell shooters such as Espgaluda and Ketsui (man, I suck major butt at Ketsui :D). Pity there's none of those shooters for the Amiga :(

i play games on my playstation3 now days...

last time i played amiga games was in 2010. that was the year i had enough of retro gaming, it was time to move on. i had been stuck in the past since 1999... that's over 20 years of retro gaming... you get to a point where you feel your gonna puke. so i wanted to try something else, pc gaming i never felt any attachment to, since i have been gaming on my amiga. on the pc you have to change hardware and update software etc every time there is a new game. so the playstation3 was the natural choice for future gaming, the playstation3 have more or less become my new amiga now. its just one awesome gaming machine and i have experienced many time the 'wow factor' i got from the amiga days back in the day. but its a refreshing feeling of something new and i never thought i would experience that again. there is so many great and amazing games for the playstation3 out there. so now i just regret being stuck in retro gaming to long. i can recommend you amiga gamers here the playstation3, its an awesome gaming experience not to be missed.

hmmm, i'm currently wow'ing it up with the Mists of Pandaria expansion pack.
a bit of minecraft here and there. i'm currently banging the metal to see if I can press the old 3000 into service as a minecraft server after a few upgrades I have yet to come.
bit of left for dead2 and CounterstrikeGo with friends, or Day-Z mod for ArmaII with work colleagues.
not much dedicated amiga'izing game type stuff going on. a bit of monkey island or simon the sorcerer.. sourceror... sorce... magic bloke now and then. I did try syndicate the other day, but found that running on anything over a 7Mhz '000 and the timing is all out of wack! :D

Got Knightmare out of it's box for the first time in what seemed like years. Only to remember I don't have a floppy drive any more lol. Oh well atleast there are ADF's lol.

Kind of enjoyed playing it. I never played the Amiga version until recently. I played the c64 version though.

Nope, it's the first game. There's another one called Chaos Strikes Back. Dungeon Master 2 is the third game in the series. If you want to try Dungeon Master, then check out meynaf's version over at EAB: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=49830.

Well I used to play Fallout 3 & NV and Skyrim on PS3, but after you played a lot like I have and your save file gets to big the PS3 systems keep freezing/lagging and that's not acceptable. My Fallout 3 character has nearly everything done and all unique items but the game crash withing 10 mins of playing now on such a big save. Not OK

Same for Skyrim, start freezing/lagging now when my save is large and ive played a lot also since no DLC is out for PS3 and skyrim I had to drop the PS3 system for new RPGs in favour for flawless PC play.

So had to switch from PS3 to PC on bethesda RPG's, sadly enough since I liked to play using a gamepad on my TV.

So im playing new games mostly on PC now, understandable when you have spent near 1k hours on the fallout and elder scrolls games on PS3 and get let down by not beeing able to play when you get far in.

On the Amiga, Naughty Ones, Ruff'n'Tumble and some Magic Pockets. Oh and Rodland, Parasol Stars.

On the laptop Saints Row the third (even though I finished it can't get enough of it). DAYZ, not sure I like it yet. Small games - All zombies must die collection.

Played Skyrim for a bit on the PC with the HD texture pack. No freezing on the PC ;-)

On the work desktop - CSS, on my own server with mates at work, "Friday arvo drinks" :-)

On the android phone - some stupid sheep game at the moment. Can't remember the name, but it likes to spam you now and then :-/

On the PSP - Little Big Planet.

On the Dreamcast - Gauntlet

On the WinUAE box - Banshee AGA CD32 version

bethesda's PS3 support has always been crap. I remember Fallout 3 having a glitch that would insta crash it near the brotherhood of steel's main compound. By simply walking in a cartain direction it would crash the game. this was fixed on the xbox version within a week. The PS3 version it had taken them nearly 3 whole weeks. Sucks.

back on the Amiga i have been getting Perihelion going again. However I can not remember all the rune codes for the spells. There is a large list of codes for spells. I had em on paper but it's missing. :huh:

Do you think it is because the System is "older" that it crash when there is to much saved? Or what can cause that on a system?

Because when more and more objects in the world are discovered the location of them are stored in the save file like items on the floor/tables etc and then it gets loaded in the ram and the ps3 has just to little ram at 256MB so it cripples when saves are to large.
So any of the fallout and elder scrolls gets unplayable when you have played long on one character.
I am sure they could bring an workaround for this but they might think it's to much work.

So selling broken games for the PS3 should not be allowed... since they have not fixed this issue in any of the games but keep releasing new ones with the same problems but just ignore it. That's so wrong on so many levels....

So I'm ditching Bethesda on console and I'll play em on pc instead. No more buying broken software for the ps3.

Also I skip quite a lot of ps3 games if they have no install to hard drive option because the blu-ray is to darn slow to load textures from and other content. Bought borderline 2 for PS3 without knowing and there where NOW install option, 10 mins after trying the game I ordered it for pc.

So I'm off the PS3 market, to many games with issues and to slow loading and other problems.

So atm I'm buying for pc and since I upgrade my pc quite often for quicker rendering and compiling anyways I have quite good hardware and have no problem running new games, I only have to spend a few hundred dollars extra for a new graphics card now and then but its no problem since I like to have quick gfx cards for protein folding anyways.

I thought the PS3 had 512 MB RAM, and you are right in that not all games run smootly on it. And some games take up to 5 GB of memory in saved games, just to get started and go a couple of levels. So i have to delete many saved games as my PS3 only have 80 Gb HardDisk.
