    Ignorant Subject Change!
    Keeping to the title of the thread: I spent most of today hex-editing my Fallout 3 Xbox saves so I could play as a Ghoul. I even wrote a tutorial.

    I am still working on new items, scenery and weapons with the hex-editor for my project Earthly Apocalypse. Well...If I have the time to work on them.

    I furthered the geekiness. I devised a specific method which allows me to play as any race, and then I shared it with the intarwebs. Moreover, I feel no shame.

    Reminds me. Me and some friends played an RP as computergeeks once.

    We rolled the dice to see who won the game we were playing( Supreme Commander), and I was so close to win, but everyone ganged up on me and took me out

    I once ran an RP where our characters were 'not the best of the best, we're the best of what's left!' (Actual quote.) Said misfits and loonies prompty got sucked through a wormhole into the real world. In a military base. For an organisation based not-so-loosely on U.N.I.T from Doctor Who.

    Crazy happy bunny girl, telepathic fox chick, smart-arse black mage, white mage who did more damage than the rest of thr group put together, a fighter who had a polearm that was magically attracted to trees (critical misses mwaha) and a demon who was convinced he was the second coming of Gogandantess, stuck in a base full of ultra-serious army dudes used to weirdness that bit first and never got around to questions.

    It was hysterical! I actually declared it National Critical Miss Day after we took out every damn outside light on base without hitting anything. (Except the fucking white mage. Everyone else is fucking up, and he keeps scoring critical hits. I'd have accused him of cheating, but they were MY dice.)

    I found a box of computer games earlier today

    Among which were games like Lemmings, Worms, Cool Spot, Discworld, Alladin, Civilization, Dune and several compilation discs of really old games (some from before I was born)

    I'm currently trying to get one such disc to work with every intent to play :)

    Dune has always been a personal favourite. Does your box contain Cannon Fodder, by chance?

    Ah, the game based on good ol' Terry's Discworld. Would mind finding a copy myself but I guess they're as rare as Dodos.

    Found one several years ago for the PS.
    Unfortunately, it was too chewed up to play.
    There was much sorrow.

    I bought Worms:Armageddon yesterday, and we tried to get it through the LAN.

    Didn't work at first try though.

    These are the kinds of games that ate up a good deal of my childhood. As different consoles came about, different games ate up the rest of my time. Actually, I don't think I ever got over that. I'm about ten minutes away from playing another game, having finished today's writing quota.

    I have Disworld I and II, but I could not find Discworld Noir. Among the games that I do have are: The Ultima's (I to VIII, Ultima Underworld I and II), Monkey Island I, II, and III, IV, Laura Bow I, and II, Heart of China, Leisure Suit Larry I, II, III, V, VI, and VII, and a lot more.

    Minuos: You accidently made a double post.

    PS: Hey, I just noticed that I have 869 posts.

    I just got pulled into a Diablo II binge again. I wish the sequel would hurry up...

    Have you played Divine Divinity Agathon? It's a kinda cool Diablo-clone.

    I like The Dark Axe, I think it has potential, even thought I haven't played the actual game.
