Neverwinter Nights 1 is coming out on the Ps4 for £40. Why is such an old game being sold for so much? Aug 19, 2019 at 2:49 AM

        Bethesda haven't been doing too well, reputation wise, recently. The latest game to be published by them, that new Wolfenstein game, was apparently a mess. Didn't they also release a TES game on phones and tablets called Blades?

        Last time I heard about them was maybe two years ago, where I played Skyrim for a bit and remember there being a huge backlash because of paid mods. Then something about Fallout 76 being a horrible game which everyone hated. But I also started using RPG Maker at the same time and it kind of sucked me in so I didn't play many (non-RPG Maker) games since then.

        Bethesda has released bug filled games in the past, but they got away with it because people liked the premise. But you know, you look at Skyrim and still see a lot of bugs. Fallout was just the straw that broke the camel's back. They basically created a game so filled with bugs it was nigh unplayable. Bethesda needs testplayers, they need to have a better high quality outlook and they need something fresh.

      Mint Imperials earned their name through their ruthless expansionism, and conquest of neighbouring mintdoms.

        I heard their mightiest weapon was jumping into the cola rivers, which lead to them exploding and destroying everything in sight.

        Their liberal use of cola related WMDs has been denounced by all of Mintland. Unfortunately, such political repercussions have done little to help in the liberation of once free mints from their imperialistic overlords.

        @RouletteBunnie I use my exercise bike (I have one of those mini ones because I can't mentally face going to a gym) three times a week, and lift weights the other days of the week. Exercise and diet have done wonders for my physical health. Used to be overweight, but now I'm not. Doctor was amazed at how well I've done.

        Been reading about Zoroastrian fire temples today. There were 16 different types of fire, and three grades of fire that had to be consecrated by priests. The highest grad eof fire was the Fire of Victory, and was made up of all 16 different kinds of fire, required 32 priests to perform the year long consecration cermeony. It's really interesting.

        Googled it, and it seems a fair few people are experiencing it. Really wish I could somehow change it back to how it was. I can zoom the browser out so as to make the thumbnails smaller, but then the text becomes super small too.

        Zero. Nada. Absolutely *clueless* as to what to suggest me. They have literally ZERO suggestions.

        If it's anything like FES, it'll just be that you upload the game to a basic hosting menu thing, and then set search conditions and a summary. Then, people can rate your game if they download it (no playing necessary).

        Not being able to import third party assets is a no go for me, and not being to change the code is also a no go for me. From my understanding rpg makers on consoles never let you do both.

        There is a concept in themed entertainment called "Aspirational Design" - essentially, if you were to close your eyes and dream of being (X), what are the things you would want to do, and what are the things you'd want to have around you?

        So, if I were to imagine being a citizen (or adventurer) in an Otherworld, there are a LOT of things that I could think of which would feel more appealing and aspirational than trudging around inside a sewer system! That's why even a well-made dungeon around the sewer theme doesn't feel as awesome to most people.

        I'm blessed that mosquitos seem to hate my exotic skin and type of blood, and almost never touch me. Wasps are annoying as hell though but I usually ignore them (unless it's a really big one) and most of the time they just mind their own business. Insects are fascinating creatures though, I love watching documentaries about them but not having them around ofc, haha.

        Just don't toss the laptop or give it away because of the keyboard. Usually just replacing it is enough, and the parts aren't expensive.

        It likely already exists in the park. There's no real way of knowing. Probably why they put up warnings about Plague, and telling people to report dead or sick looking animals to staff. Not an epidemic, but it's still an active threat.
