Obviously I still look at the forums from time to time, but I rarely participate anymore.

There's a couple of reasons for this.

1) I barely watch any video or quick look anymore. Dave filled the need for us RPG fans. Then he left and Drew eventually filled the void by playing/talking about simulations and games only 1% of us enjoy. Honestly, I don't think I have watched really any content on here since he left and I can't think of the last time I listened to the Bombcast.

2) Politics and the era we live in. There's too much bullshit. This is a gaming website. I didn't come here for people's viewpoints other than what they thought about video games. Problem is that even in the game specific forums you end up with crap. And before someone says "What you only want to hear opinions that align with yours?", no, I don't. I don't want to hear any opinions on a video game site at all unless it is about video games (or booze, yes booze is nice). Non-fun shit should be discussed somewhere else. Maybe it already is. I don't really know as I may check the site and recent activity maybe once or twice a week. That's just my 2¢.

Timmy cried. Hands bloody. Timmy lifeless. Peaceful silence.

Well it looks like this site still cannot keep bullshit out of game topics. Guess I'll try the forums again in another year.

And for those having issues with the lock-picking, it's not easier on the PC. There is a nice mod though to add sectors to help out following. https://www.nexusmods.com/kingdomcomedeliverance/mods/32

Yo sleeping in my first bed (the Miller) after the very long tutorial DOES NOT save the game. Can anyone lend some insight into this? I wasted some schnapps making sure the game wasn't totally broken but now I'm afraid to waste the others. I literally can't save the game and I thought sleeping in your own bed was supposed to do that??

Game saves are based on checkpoints. There's no manual save except for the Schnapps (I guess beside using the console on PC).

With that said, I just got to the extremely late title card (couple of hours?) and I actually really enjoy this game. Combat is fine so far and can initially feel odd considering the first fight is unarmed, but once you get a sword and made sure to read the combat tutorial about the direction of attacks, it starts to feel better. Nonetheless the combat is better than Morrowind so it isn't that bad!

I also have no idea what you do in this game. Are you just aimlessly wandering and it's a sandbox of sorts? Is there some linear narrative track? A mix of the two? Are you leveling up? No one has said anything about wtf this game is lol

It's pretty much as RPG as you can get. I've heard it described as Skyrim without Magic. So far I can see that. There's a main quest and I've already stumbled on a side quest. I haven't spent enough time yet, but people have said that the decisions you make matter. The tutorial is very linear, but it does become open world.

Guild Wars.

Bought it, hated it and all of its stupid invisible walls, and chat was nothing but spam about stupid dyes. Sold the account on eBay 4 hours later for $30. I just now realized that game came out 12 years ago; time goes by too fast.

Only other one I can think of was Age of Conan around initial release. Played it for a weekend and then sold the account to a coworker. Pretty sure I have sold more MMO accounts in the last 15 years than I have actual games.

@tycobb: Hah, I literally just bought it for the first time 2 days ago, very impressed for a mid shelf bourbon. I usually drink Maker's Mark or Wild Turkey. Question: Do you prefer to add drops of water to knob creek?

Nah, I don't add water. I found, at least for me, adding water screws with the after taste of some whiskey so I just go straight. I will from time to time add whiskey stones to cool it down, but that's just a random decision at times.

This is my go to. Just neat in a glass.

No Caption Provided

I highly recommend buying a bottle and leaving it open for 15 minutes as soon as you get home. Then just put the cap back on until you are ready for it.

I've always found I was the minority on HL2. I really didn't care for it. Couple of physics puzzles here and there, couple of pops here, meh. The graphics were great, the animations superb, but I just thought the game was boring.

Atari 2600. But didn't play a whole lot of it since I was a little too young. NES is what I remember the most.

Since I have my PC Master Race membership card, first computer was a 386. First PC I dumped all of my meager savings into was in 2004 so I could build a rig to handle Doom 3 and HL2 as they were right around the corner at the time.

Man, I feel old now and I'm only 32..... thanks.
