It's just after 5 and I have recently woken up, Want to go straight back to bed but it can wait.

Having finally dropped to logging in to Guild Wars 2 only for daily login rewards I have rediscovered Elder Scrolls Skyrim. Seems it's become a Covid-19 safe porn capital of the World.

I downloaded a couple of graphics mods to improve the appearance of the game and suddenly my character had huge baps on the scale of just fasten a couple of buckets together and you have a bikini top.

I removed that one, then every Adult female I kill ends up naked when I loot the corpse.

Seems the modding scene on that game is just as frenetic as ever.

Factorio has just come out of Early Access, you may lose sleep again, knighty.

One I've mentioned before (probably to knighty) that is in a similar vein but first-person perspective: https://www.satisfactorygame.com/

Also looks interesting!

I'm 670 game play hours in to Satisfactory, it's not just a factory game... I would thoroughly recommend it!

E3 Trailer:


And the update 3 trailer (context: pipes were an ongoing meme but not available in the game):

This is the sort of game I would love to get into properly and get a Tek co-op going, but I know I just don't have the time for it!

Yeah, multiplayer is a little buggy too (This is also in early access), although they are currently working on that and dedicated servers

Can't believe I forgot about it, but if you like Hotline Miami but would like to play that style of top-down game in a tactical space sci-fi setting, check out Heat Signature, I bought it as soon as it came out. I really like the variety of weapons and cool features like being thrown out of an airlock and having a limited time to rescue yourself. One of the developer's other games Gunpoint looks good too.

Boy that looks good  :ptu:

All my free time atm is either fixing up my arcade cabs (5 now) or Spelunky 2 :drama:

Spelunky 2 is apt for this thread though, it's superb :w00t:

I would actually really love to get a proper cab setup for retro gaming, maybe with a Pi or something under the hood. Never have the time at the moment though - maybe one day I'll start a thread and pick your brains about it :yarr:

In a few years a raspPi will be bossing it, they're already pretty good (PC solutions currently quite a lot better) But the Pi will get there, RPi4 compatibility is proving very slow due to new graphics hardware.

Alas also in a few years unless something changes "proper" Cabs, ie with CRTs will be more expensive.

You know a lot of people are building using a MiSTER (https://www.retrorgb.com/mister.html) with different cores ?

Not the cheapest option though FPGA does give great results. I'm going to buy the Analogue Mega SG next year to get my MD/Genesis fix.
