Might be worth it? There was this:

if you haven't played the original 2009 release then buy the Remastered version because they did work on lighting, textures and remastered cutscenes in 4K but nothing meaningful was added to the game. I think multiplayer is going to be added later via patch.

When does a game from 2009 need revamped textures, and lighting though? I looked it up and see it came out during the PS3 era. I didn't think graphics rendering has advanced to the point already that what the PS3 rendered would look outdated.

maybe the 2009 game was a console port with limited resolution textures, cutscenes locked at 30 FPS and no 4K support?

Matt McKnight, the biz dev director and producer on Remastered, revealed all of the in-game videos and cutscenes were found on a hard drive in storage from one of the original creators and remastered in 4K. Textures and lighting were also enhanced.

On October 9, 2019, Matt McKnight, Saber VP of Business Development, was interviewed about development of the remaster. The easiest part was getting Sony on board, Saber assembled a team of 25, they had to get Atari's permission to access the game's programming code, they had to seek out ex-employees of the defunct Terminal Reality to get the rights to using their Infernal Engine, and it turned out Sony nor Atari had the original art for the cutscenes so they had to seek out the lead animator who luckily still had it saved on a hard drive and it was accessible. Gameplay was left alone other than tweaking details like shadows, lighting, and hair. Remastering the multiplayer had issues since it was done by another company based on code of an unfinished version of the original game and there were six different copies of the code. There are no firm plans to rebuild co-op but that is still being evaluated.

Is this an Epic Free Game? I might have to break my rule to not support Epic for this I never really played it much back then, if I recall I had some performance issue.
edit: I see it’s not..but you’re absolutely right I do REALLY wanna play it...

Edit 2 Welp apparently Epic has just taken a major barf I’m seeing people saying EGS is in Russian and Fortnite has “disappeared” Yeah I think my boycott will stay in place because of stuff like this...

I have a copy of the 2009 edition I purchased and have played, so I guess I’m good. Plus it is an independantly run executable, no drm and not tied to any of the launchers. :)

Still Playing Die Young. It appears this game has alot of areas I've never even gotten to, so this game should be about 50 hours before it's finished. It's quite extensive for an Indie game. You can find the game on Steam.

Playing Call of Cthulhu .

I'm really liking this game but i was in the mood for a slower thought provoking game. I don't have much experience with this type game game. The last one i played anywhere close to this game was Soul Suspect and Call of Cthulhu is a whole lot better imho. Your choices really do matter. In the first part of the game you're tasked with having to get into a certain place. After getting acquainted with the game, i started a new game. The out come of getting into that same certain place went in a totally in a different direction. It was the choices i made in conversations, the cp points i spent and the order i did things that made the difference. The game has elements of stealth, puzzles, action but mostly nook and cranny searching for clues...after all you play a private investigator. Call of Cthulhu really has a great creepy atmosphere that makes you wonder what's around the next corner. So playing it really boils down to if your in the mood for a slower paced well written dive into madness type game...then play it.

"He sleeps under black seas waiting
Lies dreaming in death
He sleeps under cosmos shaking
Stars granting his breath
He wakes as the world dies screaming
All horrors arrive
He wakes giving earth its bleeding
Pure madness alive
And He haunts you
And He blinds your soul
And He loathes you
And reclaims it all
You turn to stone
Can't look away
You turn to stone
Madness, they say
Cthulhu awaken.
Sanity taken
Seething damnation
Cthulhu awaken
(Wake) Winged Salvation
Death by creation
Cthulhu, awaken
(Wake) Dreaming no more"

Quote by Lovecraftian?...nah, Metallica lyrics :)

So... Surviving Mars. I went into this being skeptical... then I saw the Paradox logo and ... then... dayum. If you didn't get this for FREE yet on EGS, do it now before its gone. This is an extremely deep and very, very cool city builder right here. Great gameplay elements while not going overboard on fantasy. There are disasters. But there is also the general colony management. Its all about timing your stuff right. You can fly in new rockets with resources but you're limited in how many you can have, and they have travel times. Its a logistics operation that requires proper planning ahead. You can get 'stuck' as in, having no food to feed colonists; or no way to get domestic production of rare resources going, and no rockets to launch. Stuff has a maintenance cost and gets dusty, needing repairs too, often using said materials.

And then the colony building itself. SO. MANY. BUILDINGS. Gotta set up proper chains of distribution as in, connect power and water pipes, but also allocate drone management for doing all tasks, which is limited by areas. This way, the actual distance between resources and buildings becomes a challenge all of its own. You're also slowly scanning the planet in square sectors, revealing new resources along the way. Can't plan too far ahead which complicates placement. The vast amount of space becomes an enemy, too.

And that's just scraping the surface. I'm only one dome in... the idea is to become self sufficient and get surplus production to send back 'home'... Elon Musk nods in approval I guess :D

Looks nice too. And the tech tree, its massive too... I think my next few hundred hours are booked.

I'm right now at the stage of handpicking my colonists (each with traits and specializations) and flying in the first batch of... twelve... people. I guess I'll need a regular ferry to get things started...

@FordGT90Concept your cup of tea perhaps?

I was referring to the gas prices...around here they are $2.20 at the moment :) I will look up siren though, ill need one other game before RDR2 is released.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is in Steam library already but anybody who liked Alan Wake needs to play it too.

Still doing the Batman Arkham marathon and just started Knight yesterday,Origins and Arkham City is already done.
Skiped Asylum since I've already played it when it was new but I did a bit of memory refreshing trough yt just in case I forgot something important.:)

I was a bit worried about Knight,heard all kind of bad things about it when it was relased so I did not touch it with my old system and now I'm glad I didn't.
It runs fairly well but it clearly has more stutters while traveling trough the city than the previous games,this is a game that should be on a SSD I guess.

@metalfiber

I also jumped into Call of Cthulhu w/o much experience and I rarely play 'horror' games but I surprisingly liked that game more than I expected.
Took my time with it and it just grew on me,was curious what happens/whats going on in that creepy place.

Felt like something open world ish.

Ended up here. Strange how this looks, feels and plays quite precisely like Fallout or Skyrim. And then consider its seventeen years old.

Still, Morrowind does nail it in terms of atmosphere, world building and narrative for me. More so than any other. Everything has great cohesion, and literally breathes adventure. That, and enchanting, spellmaking... and even half decent itemization and nice build options.

Morrowind to me was the best TES. DISCLAIMER: I did not play Daggerfall or the first.

I was excited for 6 until I learned of creation engine. I would have rather they said Chris Roberts and cloud imperium were developing it so I could have held on to some hope that it would eventually release and not suck.

Alas, I now know it will be doomed from the start. My heart aches...

...yeap. I remember reading this shpiel about keeping it for the modding community built up around it... which I'd think any serious modder would find insulting. Sometimes just clicking on an object to see the info in thier creation kit is enough to basically break the cell. Any modder who really knows what they're doing knows thier work suffers immensely because of the glaring technical flaws in the engine. Just as well as they know how unavoidably bad the quality of the games that inevitably are born through it will be.

If they really cared about the modding community they'd realize that the best that ever were gave up because they got fed up with it. At this point they are seeeeeriously holding thier games back... not to mention the community that's been finishing them for them.

Obsidian got a nasty taste of that... FONV was knocked pretty hard by game breaking bugs carried over from that overencumbered engine. Review scores didn't meet contract, so they never got paid... and to think that was probably the best game ever made with that engine... and it killed them.

They can't dodge it for much longer I think. Hate to say it but I'd be relieved to see them take a major fall for it next time around. Its inexcusable. They're just stringing along thier legacy now.

I'm right there with you. Issues like fps being tied to engine timing drives me nuts too.

I've decided to clean some dust off my untouched "meh..." collection. Replaying some odd titles, like:
- Hard Reset (the original buggy one, beat Redux a couple of years ago and it was much easier). Doing an Insane playthrough on NG+ before getting into more hardcore modes.
- Agony. It's one of those titles which people either like a lot, or hate a lot. No in-betweenies :slap:

Also, occasional Quake Champions match or two, but honestly... all hope is lost and game still sucks (already put in nearly 500hours)

Second batch of colonists... I'm past the 'Founder' stage and I can now fly in as many as I like.

And that opens up a whole new game, really. So many new things have been unlocked too. Technologies but also expeditions I can send for rewards. Interaction with rival colonies, it has a diplomacy system.
