Goose game is good for what it is. Short if you're just interested in solving the assigned tasks as quickly as possible, but if you are more interested in running around and interacting with the world it has a bit more to offer.

I found it fairly fun, my wife absolutely loves it. I'd say actually interacting with the game is the most important part. You really have to kind of make your own RP fun in the game. We liked yelling at the stupid humans as we did stuff and doing silly things like dragging a favorite item around with us to new areas.

I'd say it is definitely one of those games that will be lots of fun for some people and mediocre for others. Good one to watch a little bit of someone else playing first to see if it is your cup of tea. If it is, I'd say it's worth the money.

Agreed. And don't hit tab (at least until you need to do the boring "collect a list of things in one spot" task). It takes all of the exploration out of the level.

I've only gotten one thing off the also to-do list (???????????), but I have found 3-4 things that make my honk sound different, so I'm feeling good about my exploration.

Oh nice, just lost half an hour's worth of writing due to the page suddenly just having a hiccup. It didn't even refresh, it just dumped all the text for no reason.


In summary: Noita is fun and interesting, Tropico 2 has style but not a functional economy.

Blastbeard's posts in the "recommend me a game" thread reminded me that the game Gearhead (and Gearhead 2) exists.

It's a weird rogue-like with a swingy RNG (at low levels; it's basically the Earthdawn RNG) that has both in and out-of-mech sections, and the difficulty scales based on how many times you've succeeded/failed at missions lately. There engineering skill lets you change parts, and eventually add more parts to other parts (there's a limit, but everything will have wings full of guns) that was way better than other skills once you got it skilled-up. Or you could be a rockstar. I think the plot for your character was also randomly generated. It's a wild game for just messing around in.

There's a limit (sorta) in GH2. GH1 the only real limit was if you could survive piloting it. If you had the skills and wanted a mech with fifty heads, you could have a mech with fifty heads.

As someone who has no idea what ScummVM is, what's the issue?

EDIT: Ah. Finally got to the actual part that you mentioned.

As i was thinking about starting with a random club on a low division on the free and always great championship manager 01/02 , i also noticed that for those that want to mod their game to current days, the October 2019 update is now available :

rather impressive piece of work.

Aalways great championship manager 01/02

Any thoughts on the best patch to use for this, tapani, saturn, none, ?  I feel a bit lost.   ???

(I'm going to redo my wine-based install anyways since I went with a windows 7, 64-bit prefix and it looks like XP, 32-bit is the better fit - although it may well not matter.)

For my CM0102 (patched in 3.9.68) I use the Nick+Co's CM0102Patcher :
https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=11661

I don't know if Saturn has a version yet ready for the latest data update (as he also require his own modified data update to go with his patch)

Mostly because of the improved idle cpu sensitivity code patch (that unlike older patches like Tapani do not break a bit money bidding navigation in the transfer screen)

On the patcher option i do not enable a changed starting year (as i sometime read that some starting year may lead to trouble), but maybe it can work nowadays.
Patched like this i have 2 CM0102 installs (one with the October 2019 data update and one with thehuge original 2001 database rework ) and have no problem so far (still in my first season on clubs on lowest divisions).

I also keep the game resolution by default ( 800x600 )
I don't know how it is with Wine, but on my window 10 in order to play CM0102 windowed i need to have the cm0102.exe set to "Window XP SP2 compatibility" and has the executable override High DPI  (right click on executable  Compatibility tab -> Change high DPI settings -> Check  Override high DPI ) to avoid problems (as i have my window 10 text display scaling set to 125% , if one let it to default 100% this overrided high dpi may not be required)

I have a soft spot for this one old-as-shit MMO, RPG World Online. Turns out the guy has not been idle over the past decade. His new game is Guild Vale.

Can't vouch for its quality but I'll assume it's as grindy and addictive and fugly as his first several games.
Good luck finding any info or screenshots of it through Google, considering the word "Vale" has apparently been used at least once in Guild Wars.
Hate it when that sort of thing happens.

Digging around the actual forums there, it's essentially a new version of RPGWO. Apparently, the developer thought a new name was necessary because of a naming conflict with another game.

Also played RPGWO. I think one of the moderators/admins once complimented me on how I arranged some flower bushes.
