V is when ubisoft took over and gave it to a new developer

Yep, Ubisoft bought the rights and gave it to Nival after 3DO folded, crushing New World Computing in 2003.

HoMM V is pretty dang good, though. And this is from someone that grew up playing HOMM I-III. Tribes of the East in particular. HoMM 6 was made by Limbic and Black Hole Entertainment.

the most insane aspect of shadow the hedgehog is that there's a unique and titled cutscene compilation for every possible route through the game.

There's over 300 of these

There's a speedrun that gets every single one of those.

SD fuzz, a bit like 24/30 fps framerates, has the peculiar property of giving certain things a gravitas or splendor they lose in HD/with faster frame rates.

A recent update to OpenEmu for Mac added an extremely good customizable CRT shader, and I am more than a little in love with it. Set the phosphor blur up a bit, curve the edges way in, awww baby that is some pharmacy-grade nostalgia for me.

Yeah that is true, I think Heroes III is suppose to be the one with the most customization and accessibility, hence why it is the most popular of the series, followed by HoM&MV, but that being the first 3D game of the series, and pretty old now, it has a lot of issues, and so the impression I get is that fans largely stick to HoM&M III.
after homm III, i mostly switched to playing age of wonders and more recently eador. not into the new homms

When’s the last time there was a non-Heroes Might and Magic game? I think the last one I played was 5, back in the 90s.

DE update: Finding music for karaoke and finding my badge was a whiplash of progress I was not prepared for. Now I have an area that looks like it'll take me an irl day to explore and I just wasted precious game hours whistling on a swing.

I can see myself coming back to this game in a year and doing another playthough as an authoritarian tough guy, but I don't know if I can bring myself to roleplay someone interested in, uh, "Advanced Race Theory". Not with Kim at my side, surely.

e: I look different and I don't know if I like it...

Mouse update: now instead of interpreting 20% of single-clicks as double-clicks, it’s risen to 50%.

To put it in HoMM3 terms, imagine if half the time you click on the map to move a hero, the hero will instead move one square towards your desired destination and then immediately stop

In Pillars of Eternity terms, it means that targeting something with a spell has a 50% chance of being understood as a move command, cancelling the spell and sending your wizard into the fray instead

In Monster Train terms, it’s not a problem at all, yay!

So with the announcement last week of the very underwhelming Limited Run Games Monkey Island 30th Anniversary box set (here if you haven't seen it) I figured I'd rank the Monkey Island games. Interestingly, having written the word "monkey" out so many times means that it no longer looks like a real word to me. Monkey. Mon key. Monk ey. Monkey.

1) Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge Special Edition
2) Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck's Revenge
3) The Secret of Monkey Island
4) The Curse of Monkey Island
5) The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition
6) Tales of Monkey Island
7) Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
8) Escape from Monkey Island

Big same. I just can't justify $160 for what's included there. And I say that as someone (I think I've mentioned this before in a past chat thread?) who spent a fortune on the Myst linking book option for the Myst Anniversary kickstarter, so I'm clearly in the target audience of idiots with too much disposable income.

For completing the entire square, your choice of:



Current forums policy is a max of three gangtags, so be sure to let me know what to do if this would put you over. You have the option to use [marquee] tags to have multiple tags on the same row, though there's still a character limit in the bbcode for custome titles.

I'll probably rerun bingo around January or so.

Bingo has been great, thanks - I'm glad that it's not going to be a thing every month but I'd definitely be down for once every three months or so! I've particularly enjoyed reading through people's effortposts in order to meet bingo goals. I actually plan to write up the rest of my effortpost goals in next month's thread just for the hell of it and because I want to try and get better at writing about games; I tend to have a lot of thoughts about games but suck at articulating them/writing them down and practice makes perfect.

Here's my square. If I hadn't had to move apartments in the back half of this month I could have gotten a full square but I'm satisfied!
