Post Up coming games
What games are you all waiting for?

I'm having a lot of fun right now in Prey, and No Mans Sky held my attention for a month almost, but I'm starting to thing Duel Universe might be my next time sink. I'd like to some of the artist in here build a few ships in that game.

Sad to say, but there really aren't any.

I guess I'm looking forward to the next XCOM expansion/sequel, but it's not even announced yet.

I still have about a dozen games that I've played either very little or not at all.

being an adult, so much things that encroach on gaming time....

on more games i'd like to see, a non-bugged-to-shit stardrive game would be awesome, prolly not gonna happen though.
a sequel to fallout: new vegas... because fallout 4 is so almost great it's painful.

something that actually might be utterly awesome is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuN9g502cYM known as phoenix point

As a curiosity did you ever take a look at Age of Wonders 3, Arioch?

Frankly right now I can't think of any game I'm significantly anticipating, besides Path of Exile: Fall of Oriath, which is an expansion rather than a really new game. Besides that, none of the things with big hype machines are things I really get hyped for.

I checked out Phoenix Point. Looks interesting. I'll have to look into it some more. I knew this thread would pay off!

Well, Phoenix Point is from Julian Gollop (original X-Com creator), so I have high hopes. Really, if they get the AI right to dynamically morph the threat as promised, this will be absolutely amazing. I'm looking forward to see if they can pull it off.

I like XCOM-style games, so I wish him luck, but the track record of developers of classic games who haven't made a good game in 20 years who come back and do kickstarters isn't encouraging.

hi hi

I'm in the boat where I'm still trying to get through my backlog of old games. Not having enough time to get through them, "new," for me usually means a year or two old and on sale. :lol:

(Although not really sci fi oriented, Night in the Woods is on my list to pick up sometime. Rimworld is on the list and sorta sci fi~ish, but will probably never go on sale. I've heard good things about Cosmic Star Heroine, to the effect that is does a good job of creating the same sort of feeling that Chrono Trigger created, while not being the same thing.)

I'm looking forward to Mount and Blade 2 (2017?), Mechwarrior 5 (2018?), and Elder Scrolls 6 (2019?)

I'm hype for System Shock (2018) and System Shock 3 (2019?).

I seem to be the only gamer who never played System Shock or any of its progeny.

Heretics, both of you. Still, late is better than never. You can grab them both on Steam for a grand total of $20 and get more entertainment out of them then a $100 Triple A game today, as long as you have a little patience for dated paradigms. There's also a Remake in the works, and System Shock 2 has a very nice updated graphics mod.

Next you'll be telling me you never played Unreal. :P

hi hi

For what it's worth, I haven't played System Shock, or any of its progeny. Haven't played Unreal either. First person games in general tend to make me motion sick and then it's bad times all around.

:shock:

I understand the motion sickness angle. Games since Half-Life 2 and onwards have all given me that feeling, though it's curiously not a problem with older games or slower paced stuff like MMO's.

Since we're confessing about games we've never played, I couldn't get past Bioshock's introductory levels. It kept reminding me that I'd played that game before, and I liked it better when it was called System Shock 2. :P

I haven't. Haven't played most of the DOOMs either. In fact, name a game, chances are I haven't played it (doesn't help that I have too many interests).

Dune 2? Yes. SCraft 1? Yes. C&C anything? No. SCraft 2? On shelf.
MoO 1 & 2? Yes. Civ anything? No. FreeCiv? Yes. ACentauri? Yes. HLife? Only 1. DOOM? The 1st at least. System Shock I don't recall, except "not past 2", though I've watched over someone's shoulder at least.

Some of us just don't jump on the latest thing very often. Shoot, I still have an unopened copy of Oni that I need to get around to.

Asking someone to try out a 23 year old game (especially a 3D first person game) is asking them to be disappointed.

Dune 2 was an awesome game that launched a whole genre, but you couldn't pay me to play it now.

Guess I'm in the minority when it comes to the appreciation of ancient games, but I view classics like Dune 2, the original SimCity, System Shock and so many others in a similar vein to classic cinema. The early 90's were a golden age of experimentation and untried methods, a cambrian era of untried, untested, and unrefined gaming. It was wild and untamed in a way that modern gaming can't really compare with, but owes its existence to.

Sure, the controls and gameplay of the original System Shock are clunky and awkward today, but it was also amongst the first of its kind, when mouses were optional in the same vein as a joystick and words like cyberspace were still bandied about in earnest and without a shred of irony. It may be nostalgia talking, but it brings me back to a time that came only once, and will never come again.

There's a reason, I feel, why Homeworld Remastered came bundled with Homeworld Classic. As good as any remastered edition can be, there will always be a desire to recapture the original experience.

Of course, if my assertion is true, I wonder what gaming's equivalent of Citizen Kane would be.

Have you guys tried playing with higher frame rates? Or adjusting blur settings? I'm not certain but these things might contribute.

hi hi

Some games age better than others, and for me it usually depends on the user interface more than the graphics. A clunky, hard to control interface makes it harder to get into an old game more than lame graphics.

I still occasionally fire up old favorites, like Mechcommander, OpenTTD, Starfleet Command, Angband, or Sim City 2000 when I'm bored. I'd play some Netrek too, if I had people I knew to play with.

---

There are some things that seem to help with the motion sickness a little bit. Adjusting the field of view can occasionally lessen the sensation, but frame rate doesn't do anything for me. It's something I've had to contend with as far back as the old 2.5D games, like Doom and Marathon. It really is hard to narrow down on what causes it. Some games, I'll be able to go an hour or two before I need to take a break and lie down for a bit, and some games I'll be regretting my life choices within 15 minutes. :(
