What games are you playing?

I play with FIRS (for the expanded industries), Midwestern USA town names, ISR (for the idustry stations, although soon I will be switching to Temporal8’s 32BPP stations upon release) and the remaining NewGRFs are all Temporal8’s 32BPP sets and Pineapple 32BPP trains. I have a hard time seeing sprites that are pretty blurry.

I was addicted to this game when it first came out, so much to do & explore. And with modding even more to do once bored.

And considering that the game is made by one man is pretty damn amazing. I mean art, music everything… Just WOW! :exploding_head:

So ended up giving Pokemon Unbound another go & breezed through the Elite 4/Champion this time. I guess third times a charm. Has quiet a bit of post game content too so it will hopefully keep me busy for a while yet.

I finished the game yesterday. If I had to describe the experience with just one emoji it would be :hushed:

Srsly, that’s the most violent game I played so far! But it was fun, maybe just a bit too long. And the graphics are incredible for PS4!

Cult of the Lamb on my switch this days, I only have time late at night and no wish or will go boot up my PC and complete the 3/4th run of Elden Ring.
Really great game tho.

Playing Battletech. I forgot how much I enjoyed turn based strategy games. Just one more turn!

Currently playing:

(my 5th playthrough)

Installed Baldur’s Gate 2 because my soul needed it.

Installed Dragon Age Inquisition for more casual RPG after work session.

Fallout 1, because it’s better than 2.

Fallout 2 because I have to finish this game at least once.

I’d highly recommend everyone to try chess on https://lichess.org/

  1. You don’t need an expensive pc to play chess, you can play on an old pc or even on a mobile phone.
  2. No graphics card needed.
  3. Like other games there is no limited levels. Chess is unlimited, you can play your whole life & yet lot to learn. Chess never gets old :smiley:
  4. Like other games there is no pro/prime/premium version of the game
  5. There is no addons/tweaks in the game if your skill is better then no matter how strong your opponent is you can defeat him.
  6. You can relate lot of things to practical life

Now about choosing chess platform
There is lichess.org, chess.com, chess24, chessbase. These 3-4 are well known chess sites.

But I love lichess :horse: because

Puzzles: https://lichess.org/training
Streak, Storm & Racer: 1. https://lichess.org/streak 2. https://lichess.org/storm 3. https://lichess.org/racer
Here is another Opensource site if you want more puzzles: https://blitztactics.com/

If you are bored of classical chess then try other variants.: https://lichess.org/variant
Again if you are still bored of these variants then try more variants :smile: on pychess: https://www.pychess.org/variant (completely opensource, free just like lichess)

If our skill is better than our opponents, then how those opponent are strong than us ?

Reminds me of Old Indian defense !

We can even play on chessboard, or even compacter form, on a piece of paper, by moves notation; if our imagination is strong.

I believe there is. That’s why players study the repertoire of possible opponents, in order to come up with better out of the book variation, though Endgame decides the fate, as starting moves are almost fixed.

Skill is basically knowledge but experience also helps. Thats what we see child prodigy vs experienced old players games. Children learn fast outplay adults but they lack experience.

If you go that far then we can even play chess on our mind only & just speak your moves to your opponent & play. Which is very easy & common for titled players, some players even play blindfolded multiple boards. (I think I can play a simple ~30moves game blindfolded :upside_down_face:)

I just mentioned chess in relative to other games but if you only focus on chess specifically then there are other variants like 960 & Placement chess for that purpose.

I am not a chess expert or regular chess player like you, though I am strong user of Hypermodern plays like Reti opening and Modern defense.

Hence, I agree with you, as you are superior to me over the skills required here.

I’m not a chess expert either, never played OTB chess & never learned openings, just played too many (~60K) online games & solved puzzles.

you are superior to me over the skills required here.

You never know without playing few games vs your opponent :face_with_peeking_eye:

I just downloaded civilization beyond earth. It’s available on Linux and down 75% labor day weekend. Civilization VI is my favorite game, hopefully beyond earth is worth it!
