Banter and Chit-Chat! / Old Sierra game nostalgia
« on: December 01, 2018, 09:42:27 AM »
As the header lists, I recently got a hankering to play old Sierra games from my youth. So I bought them all on GOG.com, and played them in a marathon. Kings Quests, Space Quests, Police Quests, Hero's Quests (oops I mean Quest for Glory), and a few obscure classics like Codename Iceman (frustrating), Gold Rush, Conquest of the Longbow and Finally Conquest if Camelot. It took awhile, but was fun. The 80's/90's was the golden era of adventure games. Today;s game son't even come close. Yes they are graphically superior, better sound, etc, but are limited to FPS or third person. I truly enjoy games like QFI/Order of the Thorne for their homage to the former games snd wisg=h more were made. But that;s just wishful thinking as games have evolved.  Chadly. 8)

Ok. now the closest I have ever come to living like someone 200 years ago is this, about ten years ago in my county in NW PA there was a micro-burst Storm, Basically like a tornado. It knocked out all power to the county and most of north weastern PA, for about two weeks. Now back then I lived in the country a rurual setting. With no electricity I had no heat, lights, or power to run my well pump for water. So i lived by candle light, got water from the river to flush my toilet, and drinking water came from a natural spring near my house. I cooked on a Coleman stove, like one you would use for camping, Some folks had gas generators but not me. When I went to work we rung sales with paper receipts. To get food I drove a couple of counties over for dry goods and ice. The fridge lasted a coupke days before I had to throw most stuff out. For heat I used a kerosene heater and my fireplace, It lasted for like 10to 14 days.  So imagine going camping and "roughng it".  It was an experience to say the least. For phone service the telephone company used a gas generator to power the local box, and somebody stole it! Now granted the county I lived in was small about 65000 people. Folks acted like it was the end of the world, with no power, tv, or internet. Lol.  So if you like nature like me and enjoy camping out, thats how it was.  Almost like the tv series The Walking Dead, without the Zombies or murders.    Chadly.

@caldric I have not as of yet. However I have read and watched many movies/tv shows. Enough that frighten me. The Stand by Stephen King is an example.

   Hi all. 

    Here is a little essay on things we take for granted. Every day i get up, I turn on my coffee maker, then i get in the shower.  What if one day I got up and there was so electricity? No running water? No natural gas to heat my house. I could'nt go to the store to buy groceries, gasoline for the car, etc.  Think about it. All we take for granted. No power means no fresh clean water, no sewage removal, no heat, no food, no medicine for illness. In a NY minute we would revert to a Agriculture society over-night as it was 200 years ago.  Suddenly people would deforest the woods to burn for heat and light. Clean water that's something we really take for granted, yet 2,000,000,000 today don't have it. Basic social norms disappear. It would be law of the jungle. People would kill for a loaf of bread, a gallon of gasoline, medicine, or just about anything. Yes there have been many books, tv shows, about movies about what i'm talking about.
   My question is this: Are you prepared for the above? Myself, I know how to hunt, fish, start a fire without the use of a lighter or matches. I can build a structure to keep me out if the elements. I know basic first-aid. I can Survive for awhile at least.  I used to laugh at the shows on tv about "Dooms-Day preppers." However I know some folks that have years of supplies put-away, that have self-contained bunkers, stocked with supplies/guns.  In a minute like in the movies we could be hit with a virus that kills off 99.9% of the human race. or plants, animals, or some kind of eco-disaster.
    Now I;m not trying to frighten anyone, but it makes me wonder why in this country (USA) we spend billions on weight-loss supplements, entertainment, military, and not on infrastructure, Space Exploration, renewable energy etc. What happends when the last drop of Oil is pumped from the ground, or coal dug from the earth?  I'm pretty sure that the Earth will survive us as humans, as it's been around for 4.5 billion years. Is it human arrogance to think that we can actually end all life on this planet? We have only been here for a fraction of time. Yeah, im sure the Earth will be here long after we go the way of the Dinosaurs....Chadly. 8)

   The point is that I am happy for the small things I have: my health, the health of my family, that I have food, a place to reside, etc.  I used to get pissed that I couldn't go on vacation to the beach, buy a sports car, buy some trivial things. The older I get the more Thankful I am for simple things.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Re: SpaceVenture a Two Guys Game
« on: November 28, 2018, 10:08:26 AM »
Ok. That's good to know. It be nice if they posted that. I feel terrible what nasty backers have said about the project and the Two Guys. Plus it;s just Fucking terrible to tear down a man who has had personal problems/cancer.  I just want the game to be good and come out. And I wish Scott all best in his fight with prostate cancer,  Chadly.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / SpaceVenture a Two Guys Game
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:50:23 PM »
Hey all.

   Anybody else wondering when and if this game is coming out. This game is nearly 7 years in the making, and im wondering if it will be all that was promised.  I loved the Space Quest games by Sierra and Scott Murphy/Mark Crowe a.k.a. The Two guys from Andromeda.  While this game isn't Space Quest 7, it is I feel the Spiritual Successor.  Over on their Kickstarter page comments from backers have gotten REally Nasty. Here are some of my thoughts: 1) What was Scott Murphy's involvement? Did he write the story and dialog? He has been absent from any updates for years. Apparently the poor guy has major health issues. 2)Updates are few and don't say much. 3) some backers are so frustrated that they are now rooting for this game to fail, sadly. Me I just want the game to be released.  Any thoughts??                       Chadly. :) 8)

Hi all. Hey if anyone is interested i have a bunch old old sierra games. (including boxes, manuals and disks.) I am house cleaning and figured if anyone was interested I Will Give them to You.

                                                                                                                         Yes I could attempt to sell them on
                                                                                                                      ebay, but don't feel like it.

Quest for Infamy / Bt (Steve's) Kidney Failure
« on: October 17, 2018, 02:56:01 AM »
New Post here folk,

   Well in the last few days Steven Alexander aka BT has took a turned for the worst.   I could tell you ALL VERBATIM BUT THAT IS REDUNDANT. Steve is Dying of Kidney Failure. No cure, and he won't take his wife's kidney for backup. Now I am a nobody, but healthy I could give him one of mine, I just don't think he take it, being the guy he is. Which makes me mad. (I am healthy, have no kids, or wife, shit i can live lots with only one kidney~) Less beer which makes my mother happy??  Friends, please for the love of Christ, God, Allah, or whatever you believe, in help Steve and Jordan, @ www.gofundme.com/steves-kidney-journey. These are wonderful and great people. Please help!  Thank-You!

Hi.

   Hey SpaceVenture by the guys who made the Space Quest Games just released a big update on their new game. It's finally in Alpha with Voice Actors cast and recording now. I'm excited for this one to release as it's been 6 years in dev. Hopefully it's as good as Hero U by the Coles, that released a couple of weeks ago! :) 8) They hope for release by Xmas.
