I have a lot of points to make and I will make them later.
my ego wants me to play smash brothers

my id wants me to buy all the rimworld dlc and make a new colony, after the last colony, after like 30 hours, was tpk'd by bugs

my super ego says I should go check out overload, which I already spent the $8.73 on

the world is ending but this isn't the worst decision to have to make

I've gotta say I like the Steam sale because you can always find good games for under $20 but invariably whatever I get pops up for free on Epic in a month.

imo put your roms on a cifs/smb share and use libretro, there's a webassembly client you can use locally if the device doesn't natively support it

e: hell you can just upload them temporarily i guess https://web.libretro.com

I liked the gameplay of Ori:tWotW, but I felt like the story went too far up its own rear end.

i avoided playing it for the longest time because the one friend who shared screenshots played with the gamma cranked up to make so everything looked like poo poo. its very nice looking when you have a 120hz monitor and also have enough friends playing to avoid pubbies or, even worse, "expert" players

yeeeep, one of the few games at the time that i'd do it for. i had an old ibm monitor with little click pop out dials for brightness and contrast that were incredibly useful for quick scene changes

SmokaDustbowl posted:

it super is. eq1 also had really dark nights and races with passive infravision were worth considering, or class spells and items. some of those woods were super annoying to stumble through identical trees while spiders gnawed you down in murky shadows

iirc it comes like that by default and also the lighting is loving terrible ancient so if you don't crank it and if your character fails the paper bag test then you'll be replaced with a pitch black void with eyes in a lot of cutscenes
