Just finished Black Mesa and really enjoyed it. I was only like 13 when the original came out and I didn’t make it more than around halfway through, so the game was totally new to me for the most part. I have played HL2 and Ep1+2 years ago, but may go back and play through them again while Black Mesa is fresh in my mind.

I would also be interested in joining the game night discord if possible, will send over a pm

The only game I had in that bundle was Deadlight, seemed like it was definitely worth it

Might grab the Bento Bundle even though I own the xblaze games already.

Pass on the LSL and Enchanted bundles I’m thinking

Thanks for the info, maybe I’ll buy NWN and never play it.

Is anybody playing Valorant? I missed the beta but it released today and would like to give it a shot. Sounds like it’s much better going in with a group though

First bundles are live for the fanatical bundle fest. There’s a Payday 2 bundle with a ton of dlc that’s too rich for me, and a Neverwinter bundle I can’t really speak on and the Kingslayer 2 bundle that seems like a good value at $4.99 for Party Hard 2, Vikings Expedition, Grid (2019) and Guilty Gear (I’m considering DNF a throwaway because everyone probably owns that already).

There’s currently a summer sale going on at gog.com. Been looking to replay MDK and MDK2 and almost bought them for $10 each last week. Glad I waited, they are under $4 each in the sale. Didn’t really look at much else to see what standouts there are though

If you are gonna read digitally on Android I recommend Perfect Viewer for a comic reader. I purchased this bundle and also realized I had purchased a Transformers comics bundle from Humble a while back as well and never read them.

That is a lot of arcades!!! Awesome and probably incredibly expensive setup!

I am actually one of the weirdos with one of these in his “office” although I’m a tradesman, so there’s not any actually office work taking place in here.

I also finally got my spinner working properly with my Pi image and after doing some troubleshooting with the person who built my CP it sounds like my trackball is just defective. Replacement should be here to test today. My daughter is thrilled to be playing Tempest again

If I ever have a second CP built I will probably put the trackball and spinner in the middle and move the joysticks and buttons to the outside.

Pfft, who needs that? I went to TrumpCat's thread (who is mine and your purrsident, so suck it off Gorbachov!) and saw some tremendous deals for Arcade1UP cabinets that were ONLY $50!

So I went to my local Walmart (thanks Jesus for capitalism, those poor dumb retail workers should feel lucky to even get paid at all to be part of such a great company) because I noticed that there were 7 Pac-Man cabinets with risers in stock for $50. Turns out some libtard drove 4 hours to buy them all (probably an illegal immigrant with his unemployment check!) and I ended up having to buy a RAMPAGE cabinet and a riser SEPARATELY.

Now all I need to do is buy another Pi, new controls, a new circuit board, a new power supply, and a new monitor, then put in a day of work to set it all up, and I'll be able to play those games too! Might cost me $200 total, but it's totally going to be worth it! Thanks for all the money the Democats didn't want to give us, TrumpCat! #MakeArcadesGreatAgain



I actually have one of those A1ups that I got for $75 when the clearances first started and modded it with a Pi. I had my panel made by a company called 99livesArcade that does really great work. I am using the Wolfanoz image, and all but 2 or 3 roms have worked great. My kids love it, and I have a good time playing through the games I remember and a lot I don’t remember from my childhood.E3A61DC2-2F87-4E0E-A91A-0E9C28793D55.jpeg

My only complaint is that I can’t get the trackball and spinner working properly and I’m not really adept at fixing that sort of thing. In hindsight I would have gone with a 3 player panel and skipped the trackball and spinner

Just finished Chimera Squad. I really enjoyed the game, the breach mechanic, close quarters focus, and different turn structure definitely added a nice twist to the normal xcom formula. I did encounter some pretty bad bugs and crashes. The game froze several times and just closed itself on multiple occasions, which was annoying, but the bigger issue was the inventory bugs I encountered, mostly the fact that the masterwork shotgun wouldn’t appear in anyones inventory after crafting and buying it, which just made things a little more difficult in the last missions. (Apparently there’s a fix by editing some files in the game, but I didn’t wanna mess with that unless I couldn’t finish without it)

My go to squad was Godmother, Claymore, Terminal and Patchwork, with Axiom as my go to when someone developed a negative trait.

I had also posted a while back about my new pc build blue screen crashing and tweaking a few settings. That didn’t actually fix anything, but I determined one of the sticks of ram I got was bad, so after dealing with that everything is all good.

Gonna start focusing on Gears Tactics now. I enjoyed the hour or so I played before I got hooked on XCom

Awesome! Hope you enjoy your new rig. :)

Would like to hear how performance, settings, and all of this stuff is going w/ your games and whatnot.


Been playing a little bit Disco Elysium and Phoenix point. Really enjoying both games, but haven’t been getting to spend a ton of time with them. I have been getting some random crashes and BSOD issues, with different explanations. I went into the Ryzen Master utility and found that the EDC was hovering around 85-98% while idling. After researching online it seems like people had success with this issue by disabling Precision boost and Core boost in the bios. I could only find the Core boost option in my bios and disabled it and now I’m idling around 40-50% of EDC and it never really seems to jump much while playing Disco

I haven’t had any more crashes or issues since making those changes, hopefully that was the extent of the issues.

Just finished a new build.

I was able to get in on the 2600x deal at microcenter a few weeks back, and paired it with a Gigabyte Aorus B450 pro WiFi, 16gb ram, and a XFX 5600XT. Looking forward to finally being able to play Disco Elysium and playing Phoenix Point without my computer crashing. My last build was an FX8120 with a HD7870, so this should be a massive upgrade

NBA Jam is unique in that you will be able to play against other people online. With that being said, the price is still very high
