maybe we should all read 'rebecca' instead. here i will start

last night i dreamt i went to manderley again. it seemed to me i stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while i could not enter, for the way was barred to me.

i could prob roll with the HL2 thing - i started and then abandoned it a while ago, and ive been meaning to get back to it.

i have no chrono trigger capable system, so i am out on that (unless theres something im not thinking of (mac?) that has some emulator or something.)

One thing that would be cool with Deus Ex (I think - I've never played it!) is that it's divided into levels, so there would be easy starting and stopping points, and since apparently you can beat each level in a number of ways, depending on what technology tree branch you're following, it would be kind of neat to compare how we went about each level.

There are emulators for Chrono Trigger.

Mordy, Sunday, 19 July 2009 22:48 (twelve years ago) link

the problem with deus ex (other than it being hella gay obv) is that the ways of beating each level are 'the way that involves shooting a bunch of people in the face' and 'the one other way'

i kind of want to play chrono trigger again now. justen snes9x should do you although i don't know whether it works with modern versions of mac os

thomp, Sunday, 19 July 2009 22:49 (twelve years ago) link

we should play "I wanna be the guy".

Only kidding.

i played and loved deus ex last year... dunno if i wanna have another go at it so soon, but otoh it's a pretty great game so i'd probably be down for it. in fact i definitely would

Chrono Trigger is on DS now, yeah? I'll play that.

JimD, Monday, 20 July 2009 00:12 (twelve years ago) link

Since my "let's make 8 zillion threads and straw poll every decision into the ground" method didn't work last time, I'm gonna suggest everyone can

I'm playing advance wars ds right now (and just starting to like it) but fuggit, ahmana switch midstream and start a new thread now.

Cankles (OG), Euler, JimD, jjustin, thomp, anybody else hop on board.

if we can get one or two more, let's start an HL2 thread too.

i would be down to replay psychonauts at some unspecified time in the future btw.

PLEASE SIT TIGHT WHILE WE MAKE NEW ARRANGEMENTS (forksclovetofu), Monday, 20 July 2009 21:44 (twelve years ago) link

i own and have not yet played psychonauts, so that'd be perfect imo

born s1ocki (cankles), Monday, 20 July 2009 21:45 (twelve years ago) link

dude, you'll fuckin' love it.
I'll go to that next but god knows how long chrono trigger and Half Life 2 will take.

PLEASE SIT TIGHT WHILE WE MAKE NEW ARRANGEMENTS (forksclovetofu), Monday, 20 July 2009 21:50 (twelve years ago) link

yes yes yes on psychonauts, i never finished that

wax onleck, wax affleck (jjjusten), Monday, 20 July 2009 21:52 (twelve years ago) link

it's one of my all time favorite games but THE FUCK FUCK FUCKING MEAT CIRCUS at the end is the worst

PLEASE SIT TIGHT WHILE WE MAKE NEW ARRANGEMENTS (forksclovetofu), Monday, 20 July 2009 21:53 (twelve years ago) link

will try to chrono trigger w/you dudes, but jordan goole and i already have sort of a mini Far Cry 2 players club going on on the other thread, so i might just get drawn into that more.

will consider

wax onleck, wax affleck (jjjusten), Monday, 20 July 2009 22:05 (twelve years ago) link

guys i would quite like to suggest JAGGED ALLIANCE or possibly JAGGED ALLIANCE 2 - they're both on goodoldgames, non-linear tactics game with an x-com/fallout type battle system and rpg elements. i haven't played them and have wanted to for ages

otoh i think we should stick with chrono trigger for now and maybe hold a vote for next one? i do want to play psychonauts tho

(i only just finished playing through hl2 and the episodes but i will totally post on the thread if someone starts one)

thomp, Monday, 20 July 2009 22:06 (twelve years ago) link

i'm totally seeing CT through, Psychonauts is far in my future.
But Canks, u should start a thread if u wanna

Chrono Trigger I remember being 40-50 hours on first playthrough. More, of course if you start seeking out all the extra stuff and various endings. It just blows by, though - once you guys get into it you'll be tearing it up.

Half-Life 2 was... 20 hours maybe? Maybe even shorter, there were several points where I got confused and stuck, especially in the driving and boating sections. (lol let's do Team Fortress 2!)

it's one of my all time favorite games but THE FUCK FUCK FUCKING MEAT CIRCUS at the end is the worst

^this. But it's a good recommendation - very linear, the collectathon elements are very optional, and probably doable within a month or so.

Jagged Alliance games are great - I'd recommend skipping straight to JA2 since the first one really is pretty ugly now. Then again, I feel like they're gonna have similar problems as with Fallout, very non-linear, and it's far longer and more difficult to boot. But yeah, it is totally awesome, highly recommended if you like X-Com/tactics games.

Two nominations:

Star Control 2 (aka The Ur-quan Masters) free and open-source, playable on pretty much any PC today, a classic mixture of arcade shooter/adventure game/RPG space opera. Very open-ended, though - and I don't even remember how long one playthrough will take. Fantastic game, one of those games that refuses to stick to one genre and succeeds wonderfully, and a great sense of humor throughout.

Killer7. I know this has a ton of marks against it - a) GameCube, PS2 or Wii only b) frustrating control system and gameplay and c) completely obtuse plot conveyed deceptively with an immature tone - but it's a truly unique experience, very thought provoking and ripe for discussion. Also it's very conveniently structured into chapters.

I also own but haven't played Psychonauts. Seems to be a pattern here, and maybe there's a reason for that? I know I started it once, and found the opening cutscenes long and unfunny and unskippable, and then the first level a bit meh, and then it got put on the shelf and hasn't been picked up again, yet.

JimD, Tuesday, 21 July 2009 09:09 (twelve years ago) link

Ha... I bought Psychonauts on PC a year before I even had one that could run it! I'm guessing you guys also ran into the game for really cheap, since it was hitting a lot of bargain bins and such due to the poor sales despite critical acclaim curse.

Nhex, Friday, 24 July 2009 13:04 (twelve years ago) link

i wa thinking of starting Grim Fandango since its supposed be so uber classic

bnw, Friday, 24 July 2009 13:23 (twelve years ago) link

psychonauts yes, let's do that one in due time. i have never played it or owned it but have heard only good things. before this thread that is...
