What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

Playing Hexen II and am up to the Thysis (Eqypt) chapter, however I am stuck and a walkthrough tells me that I have to find a secret corridor until I find a tic-tac-toe puzzle but I can't even find this pathway which I'm supposed to find in the first place.

Finally bought a game, its been a while. Anyway its Divinity: Original Sin (first one). Looks really cool, like those rpgs of the old, but darn its not interested in holding your hand! Thankfully its not much of an issue currently. Time for some rpg goodness!

The hands in blood 1 are almost impossible to take off on dosbox in higher difficulty levels. Save spray cans and tnt for them whenever you can. (Tommy gun works too but if an army of them comes or they arrive with other monsters it might be too slow. Also you can just stand on practically any high object (step high) like a window or sofa and become completely safe (can even jump from place to place if you want to save ammo).

Quake Champions, because now this game feels better than ever. Completely playable Quake, not so good but enough to play. New content, levels, unlocks e t.c. I will play it till Doom MP alpha/beta or another good multiplayer FPS game.

 

Prey(by Arkane) - underrated, strange by first look but still awesome game.

That hub is an absolute merciless bitch, definitely the hardest in the game. It's been a while since I've played the game, so I can't give you any exact information, but just try to keep your eyes open for anything that looks even remotely strange, especially on textures. If nothing happens when trying to push it, then hit it with one of your weapons.

I must be in the minority of people that don't like Quake 2 but do like Quake 4 anyways.

Also, does anyone have any ideas how to get rid of the Low Memory warning when running the game through DosBox? Supposedly "memsize" should be increased in the configuration file (dosboxBlood.conf), yet it was already set to 64 by default and the message still appears.

 

E: @Lila Feuer Did ya hate the invisible ninjas from the original SW? Well I found something worse, if these things burn you, you're done. Not to mention that hands which strangle you to death.

The message is bogus, you're fine.

Use the Tesla Cannon against Hellhounds, and if you have to take damage make sure you got fire armor.

That puzzle is horrible, make sure you know how it works beforehand in a walkthrough and save your game prior to trying it.

Hell Hands in Blood are tied to the speed of the game. If they seem unnecessarily hard to get off, try increasing the resolution of the game. I find playing at 320x200/240 makes them impossible to get off, 640x480 makes them function more "normally" on my end.

Hell hounds are easy (most of the time), just jump behind them and they'll waste time rotating to try and get you, harder if an army of them comes but you can just run back while unloading any rapid fire weapon into their face (then jump past them when they close in to burn you and repeat). Hands are way more ruthless if you have dosbox, unless you rig dosbox the game will be fast enough for them to stick like glue to you, no matter how hard you mash the keyboard. 

 

What difficulty is he playing on would help a bit with tips :P, monsters get a lot tankier in higher difficulties, on lower ones you can altfire most things to kill them with the shotguns. monsters also have crazy fast reaction speed on hardest difficulty, cultists and fanatics jump 50 tiers in how much you should prioritize killing them, while monsters look dangerous in comparison.

I like that gun a lot, pretty damn powerful against all enemies. Good to know the fire armor provides some protection, that would explain why they don't burn me to a crisp every single time, unless that's just my luck.

I'm playing on 640x400 but even on that I'm yet to successfully get them off me, so I instead just rely on save games and bang 'em with some TNT after I learn their location on the map.

That is, if I manage to avoid the fire, I tried doing that a few times and well, you know what happened next :v , so I prefer to just keep the distance.

 

I'm playing on the second difficulty, whatever its name is, and so far it's more difficult than all the other Build engine games, and on a much lower difficulty. Of course, it might just be the fact that I'm playing Blood since 2 days ago.

 

Meanwhile, I've also started playing the original Deus Ex. This one seems to have aged really well, unlike SS2, and the gameplay is less frustrating thanks to much better movement.

Blood is just way harder than Doom and Duke3D. Shadow Warrior has its merciless moments so they are kinda equal. Especially on highest difficulty, both go crazy and need perfect execution in many areas. 

 

You can also trick the hounds to jump into water which kills them. If you are too far when you jump into it they might just lose interest instead and go run around and possibly hide in a corner.

At some points there is gargoyle statues which come to life when you open a door or press a switch nearby, you can push them into any water nearby and they eventually drown somehow.

Game I am currently playing: Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. Think oldschool Castlevania, but updated with sharper animations and more refined gameplay.

It's rather predictable when they do that. If there's a switch nearby, chances are, at least one statue comes to life.

 

Thanks for the tip though.

Crouch will also break a lot of fights, and allows you to avoid many attacks, but as soon as you realize this exploit it really trivializes some of the intended tougher fights.

Probably because of the infamous difficulty bug.

Yeah, damage scales up after you've loaded a saved game on skills 1-2, and scales down on skills 4-5. It's meant to be the other way around. Only the default difficulty is unaffected. Hence, I'm trying to go through Blood on skill 4 with no savegames to preserve the damage values, needless to say the Cultist is the biggest bastard of them all.

Marana Pallex!

 

These Cultists are pretty fun, and their death screams are so satisfying 👊.

 

So there's a difficulty bug... interesting. I have not been able to notice it, might not be something easy to spot for a newcomer I guess.

 

Also, the bridge in E3M6 was awesome with that red sky. Monster Bait they say, well yeah they'd surely baited me and my poor sense of direction, not like I spent 20min. running in circles trying to advance after finally locating the Moon Key.

 

I'm such a nonsense, I like exploration in games if it's well executed, but I get lost far too easily.

I played and beaten Quake on the old WINQUAKE version with a "Criss-Cross" control format (left hand for the movement and right hand for shooting). Same thing for Doom on the Win95 version. It was tough, I'll tell you that.
