    Bauldur's Gate 1&2 Enhanced Edition (PS4)

    I confess to being a Dungeons and Dragons addict from way back. I also seem to be in the minority for actually enjoying The Siege of Dragonspear expansion as back in the day it did seem to me that the storyline was missing an important second act. For what could be termed a "retro-game" i still find the whole of this epic fully immersive and quite tough enough at the Core Rules Difficulty setting.

      I used to play the older Dungeons and Dragons games on the computer. For me they were as challenging and just as much fun as playing the original pen and paper RPG. Icewind Dale and The Temple Of Elemental Evil were two of my favorites, but I also enjoyed the first Baldur's Gate (never played the second one).

        Spamming Skyrim again lately.
        I've been overviewing the mods I use, removing some and adding a few new ones.
        Been lots of fun.

            Fun! Was it entirely Zoom or was it paired with something like Roll20?

            I DMed a D&Dish* game for my daughter and three of her pals in the backyard (appropriately distanced and with a bucket of soapy water on hand) last week, but we've talked about using Zoom too.

            * Beyond the Wall crossed with elements of BX, 5th Ed, house rules and even a bit of Runequest.

              We used rolz.org to do the dice. That's all we really needed.

                  Over the weekend I was playing Hexen which is a dark fantasy first person dungeon crawler game. Very fun but the puzzles are very hard. I also played Vangers which is an obscure russian racing rpg game with a very unique world and art style It was also fun

                      I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream. I have always been a sucker for point and click adventure games and still play from time to time, when I am too unfocused to read or do other sensible things. Almost ashamed to think of how many hours I have spent playing Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights back in the days. Nice to know that I was not the only one :)

                        I LOVE Hexen honestly it’s one of my favourite games now because of the puzzles and the atmosphere. The graphics are really nice as well. I love games from that time period.

                          I love baldurs gate.
                          The older I get, the mess patience i have for computer games. But maybe that’ll pass when life changes and gets more peaceful.
