Hi. So I'm looking for some good freeware games to kill time with. I have a shitty computer (~1GB of RAM) so I can't play anything that requires a lot of RAM or processing power. I tried to re-play Soldat the other day but I kept getting a bullshit error about a lack of OpenGL support on my video card so I couldn't get back into it again. So I've tried out Under the Garden, beat Knytt and am dying like a motherfucker in Spelunky often. I've only made it to the first jungle level 3 times out of 65 tries or so. I beat Cave Story (again) recently and just need something new to try out. No fighting, racing, sporty or Room Escape-type games please. Please summarize what the game is about and if you know the genre please list that too. I would appreciate any suggestions.

>>4547 I've already used this as a reference point which is why I tried Spelunky in the first place (OP pic) but the difficulty of that game was too much for me. I died over 100 times and only managed to make it to the second jungle level. And I only got to the jungle a maybe 6? times in total. I've also played Knytt (which only took 45 minutes to complete), I played Soldat in the past but can't play it due to some video card/Open_GL? issue, I beat Cave Story on the PC years ago, I've got Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup on a flash drive along with the original N game. And I played the original Jumper on Newgrounds years ago during the golden age of flash. I'm more into RPG-style games but I like to explore and level up my characters in numerous ways. I'm not a fan of shooter games but I really enjoyed Soldat. Mainly because I didn't take it seriously and goofed off a lot.

>>

>>4546 No, but I did grab some games off of http://www.myabandonware.com months ago. Like Sim Ant, Sim Tower and some other oldies lol. Apparently this laptop can run Civilization IV but I have to set everything to medium/low settings for it to run smoothly. I really wish I could play Spore again but I don't dare on this piece of shit. One game I'd really like to try out is Black & White and its sequel. I enjoy simulation-type games as well and heard it's quite fun.

>>4547 >>4548 Iji is great and got updated recently

>>

>>4554 I played this for a few hours yesterday. It's kind of boring because you're doing the same things over and over--sometimes on a really hostile planets, sometimes not. Even though it's been updated it feels like a game from the 90's (which I don't mind) and the movement is a bit of a pain. I mean, you pretty much have to be precisely on top of a planet to visit it and depending on its size you can fly by it pretty easily even though you should have been close enough and therefore waste fuel if you accidentally end up back out into Hyperspace. It'd be nice if there were more tracks to listen because the space one gets old really quickly too. I'll keep playing but I'm not sure for how long. >>4555 Not big into fighting/shoot'em ups but I'll check it out nonetheless.

This isn't for games per se but to branch off of my Sim-game thread >>4482, I've played around with a few simulators here and there over the years and I'm curious as to what (if anyone) you guys have had the most fun messing around in with. For me, while I do not have access to a computer that can handle the graphics anymore, I really enjoyed modding the shit out of Celestia--a super interactive 3D universe consisting of (mainly) our local galaxy. It's even been utilized by NASA for its accuracies. You can zoom in on planets, moons, asteroids, objects, etc., follow their orbits, simulate being on the object and simulate what it'd be like on it, or launch from it, go back in time, see constellations, etc. Travel faster than the speed of light to distant worlds, stars, and so on. https://celestiaproject.net/ One simulator I came across recently looked like it'd be real fun to fuck around with but you need a decent computer to handle the graphics plus the latest version isn't free unlike Celestia. It's called Universe Sandbox and it simulates physics in space. Want to ram two planets together? Let's do it. How about stars? Fuck them too! http://universesandbox.com/ So, what other simulators have you guys fooled around with and have enjoyed?

>>4512 KSP for me, also as most Unity games it works on linux.

>>4512 Warthog seems pretty fun. I've played it only a few hours, going through the in game tutorials. Learning how to fly those planes from the 70s is hard as fuck

I own a CYBERPOWERPC gaming rig and I use STEAM gaming services/application I have this exact XBOX360 controller from years back when I played XBOX. But the damn thing doesn't respond when I plug it into my computer. I think it is too old I want to play PC games with a controller because I'm more used to that but it doesn't respond. I think I have to buy a new one Which controller can I purchase that works with PC Steam games and is good?

You need a driver and i recommend xpadder in addition, to use the controller in any way you desire (control mouse or windows shortcuts, mute, louder, etc.).

>>

>>4423 Logitech F510 (Wireless) $50 or F310 (Wired) $20 are the best controllersi n my opinion Has both Dinput and Xinput which is good for older games and RPGmaker titles

>>

>>4457 I believe you are taking about F710. That one is wireless. I own one and it's pretty great.

>>

>>4423 >Which controller can I purchase that works with PC Steam games and is good? The 360 controllers really. They are cheap and they are very compatible with everything. Even on linux with a 360 controller I could play steam games without even installing anything

What is/are the best Simulation-based game(s) you've ever played for PC? I've owned/played: The Oregon Trail SimEarth SimCity 2000 SimCity 3000 SimCity 4 Sim Ant Sim Tower Spore Roller Coaster Tycoon + expansions Catz (Made by P.F. Magic) And out of all of them I think SimCity 4 is my favorite one. Spore is good, sure, but once you enter space mode it just gets really repetitive and the expansion for Spore is a joke. I don't know if it counts as a sim-game but I've heard the Black and White series was really good.

Thanks OP This game can't fail or I'll an hero. M&B1 is the most addictive game ever made. I don't like this "you level skills by using them" thing tho

>>

>>4478 I agree. Theyre making a mistake. TES has been an example of it being a mediocre system at best for a long time. The way it works in the M&B and Warband is good.

>>

>>4479 Yup. I'm yet to see a system where it works well. For TES it is fine because it let´s you maximize everything. Given the nature of the game, a single player rpg, I like that. But warband is about conquering the map, so I expect a more challenging environment against my build. Being a master of everything doesn't seem to work for warband. Guess we'll see

https://youtu.be/J434BOrFR_0 Conan Exiles first developer diary released. Visually the game is looking really great. This is like a sandbox survival game, where you hunt and so on. The concept seems a little weird though. I've read all Conan stories, and they have two aspects: >a lot of sorcery and beasts from other dimensions in it. Conan is no witcher, he isn't prepared to deal with them, nor is he supernatural, but due to his agility, cunning (the conan from the movies is pretty stupid in contrast) and over average strength (the game the teens played at his barbarian village was twisting a bull's neck until it died) he kills them. >Conan cheating and stealing from other people. He was a pirate and many other things as he crossed his fictional universe lands >Military campaigns. Conan becomes king later in life. None of those, save the monsters (which are not shown in the video), really apply to that game. Building your own village on a Conan game? He is a conqueror, not a builder. Still, I'm somewhat hyped for this

Does anyone here play this pre-alpha (currently just a free-for-all deathmatch thing) Naruto-esque game and if you do then what do you think of it? What I really like about it is how frequently it's updated, how good the combat system seems to be (even if it's really bare bones at the moment) and how close the developers seem to want to be to their fan base. https://www.shinobilifeonline.com

Steam Winter Sale is in full effect This is a rare off chance and I might not get any replies but who knows. Maybe there is one of you who is resistant to purchase a video game because you don't have anybody to play with. If you would like: Just post a game below and I will check it out (or others will) Maybe we have similar interests and I may want to purchase the game with you and we can co-op a new game together. Would be fun. Just know I'm American with an American time-zone and possibly do not have mic chat capabilities

>>

And just to add if the game can not be 100+ Thanks lol Amount isnt a deal breaker if you honestly will play with me but if you are just going to have me pay for a high dollar game, then play 30 minutes and rage quit, then No thanks pick something cheaper Also, Im a bit of a novice when it comes to PC gaming in general but I will practice to try and keep up with your level of play. So dont be shy if you suck at games. This is just for us to hang and shit and play a new game co-op and have fun

>>

I bought Overlord 2. Never played it before. I played the original on Xbox manyyears ago. Its a fun game so far. I like the humor and soundtrack Im tempted to play Orcs Unchained so I can play with others online but the scores suck so bad I bought Dungeon Degenders last night also. I. hope people still play it online. Was only $3. Hoping I can find people to co-op with me

Im all ears for any general newbie advice to a person who just bought their first gaming rig. Like where to get games. Sites to look at. Typical gamer advice to optimize the gaming experience Also, bought a $1500 rig but still need a monitor so any advice there is also appreciated I plan to buy Oblivion first to mod it and have fun. Then after I save up more money I will actually try and get into PC exclusives. My cousin wants me to get into some game - StarOcean? i think it was named Apparently the biggest crowd funded game ever

For anyone more in "the know" My Oblivion game crashes once an hour. Literally cannot go more than an hour without a crash. I've been playing for around 3 days or so and I've just circumvented the problem by saving every 10 minutes or so >Is there a mod to fix this or does anyone know a reason why it keeps happening? Or is this just one of those games that crashes a lot? Thanks in advance

>>

>>4392 No problem chum , have fun >>4393 Is it a cracked or regular version ? >Cracked Seek for an other crack it must be yours that is total shit >Regular Well do the first basic shit like update/repair Direct X Update you OS Try to lunch the game in admin mode Try to seek if there is an error message or code when you crash and then send it to the Dev or Steam if this is a steam version Uninstall - reinstal the game maybe Is it a crash ( blablabla as stoped working ) or a black screen or just a come back to windows without any warning and info ? If it is a regular version and your plan to contact the dev/steam provide as much information as you can , error message, code, manipulation you did , how it happen (freeze then error message , black screen then error message, or just basic windows return screen... )... Or and last but not least maybe you should try to find if someone have the same problem if you didn't checked yet.

Does anybody play Tera? It is free to play and I was wondering if you guys think it is any good

I enjoy Tera immensely, although I found it pretty easy and it was a bit of a turn off as I leveled.

>>4385 Thanks for the feedback Dammit! haha I didn't want something "pretty easy" I mean I wanted to just sit back and play it on the weekends to chill but wanted it to be semi hard. Oh well. Guess I'll have to actually pay for games haha Just got Steam and it is a bit overwhelming finding good things

Whats ur steam id? We can play something

I will be, very shortly, starting a Skyrim character after years since I played the original on XBOX. I never played any of the DLC so there is a lot of content I'll happily get to play I plan on creating a loli Summoner-type character with a backstory that I am super magically strong but physically very weak so I summon pets to protect me and run away from battles. I plan to call her "Lily" or "Lilly" or however is the correct way of spelling it >Do you know any strong magical loli characters in fiction that I can model her from? Only one that comes to my head is "Eiko" from FFIX or Tatsumaki from OnePunchMan

>>4407 oh and the reason i thought to make pink haired chick is because i was messing with tattoos and paint and i could get the perfect body tattoos just to look like that pic on her body I said "fuck it" and my original plan was to make Lilith from Borderlands (as I was going to call my character Lily anyway) sonce the Siren tattoos are easy to replicate but i really wanted a loli char so i just instantly thought of this pink haired slut and went to work.

>>

>>4409 Does simply make your char small and the thinner possible isn't working ? I know whith some mods (even with the basic char creator) you could make character really thin so if it is also small it should looks like more of a child/loli than a fatty poopoo dwarf All in all, good luck
