Off-topic / Console videogames

Just bought a PS4 after something like 15 years away from consoles.
Having a good time with Witcher 3. Naked chicks, playing trading cards, love stories, semilinear storyline, and obviously the stunning graphics you get these days.

But still lots of issues that similar games had 15 years ago.
Like getting stuck in furniture, having to ravage in rubbish and backtrack whenever you are teleported after a mission, occasional bugs, equipment you can't use unless you are of a certain level, high level guards that require like 1000 sword hits to die, and all other crap which roguelikes fixed 40 years ago.

But yeah, enjoying it as it sometimes creates interesting scenarios. Like just played a mission where I was with this hot mage chick on a masquerade ball where I happen to steal lots of food from the banquet, met aristocrat contacts, beat the shit out of a drunk dude who was looking for trouble, saw naked dancing prostitutes on the moonlight, and other drunk noblemen embarassing themselves, kissed the mage chick under the fireworks, and won a trading card game tournament. All felt real enough for that to be lived as a kind of real experience.

Anyone has other console games to recommend?

Off-topic / Ladyboys

Anyone into ladyboys here at RogueTemple?

After having been dating women all my life, I recently developed a serious liking for ladyboys. I like the exotic beauty, the femininity, the higher sex drive compared to women, and am fascinated by their usually maudit hard core troubled existances. Some of them aren't into bars and live a somewhat normal life though.

Some videos from Pattaya

Lots of ladyboys there.
I remember going to a ladyboy gogo bar where there was a show with ladyboys dancing on poles, etc. Felt like paradise - nice house music, red lights, sexy asses, tipping chicks, buying drinks left and right.
Knowing that in some gogo bars Thai girls perform into a 'ping pong show' which consists of them inserting ping pong balls inside their p***y and then shooting them with their pelvic muscles. @------°, I was then very puzzled by a sign stating '10 ping pong balls, x bath' since there wasn't any woman, all ladyboys.
I asked the mamasan if that would have meant ladyboys doing a private ping pong show with their bums ha. She looked at me like WTF. I felt slightly autistic.

Here in Australia people are making a great fuzz about legalizing gay marriage

I think they should make marriage illegal everywhere and for everyone.

Hahahaha.. good one Krice!

Sultans now marry spouses from the cultures they're trying to curry favor with. For example, when a sultan cements her friendship with crabs via matrimony, she'll appropriately marry a crab now instead of, say, a robot.

Here in Australia people are making a great fuzz about legalizing gay marriage, meanwhile CoQ is promoting interspecies marriage.

Thanks Getter   :D

Both cryptos and fiat have not intrinsec value.

The advantage of cryptocurrencies over fiat currencies is that cryptos are decentralized.

The drawback is that you can't pay everyday things such as ladyboys and alcohol with them :-(

Unoriginally, Jupiter Hell. That Kornel Kisielewicz has done such a great job with DoomRL (now DRL).
Also having a blast with Caverns of Qud and looking forward for the project to be launched officially for the complete version.
That's about it as I haven't been playing much recently.

Hahhaah.. good old Krice. Yes actually that wouldn't be bad except we couldn't play roguelikes!
Maybe going back to the '80s would be enough ha.

Looks like the devs have been introducing some interesting updates! Haven't played for a while but really looking forward to. Did they manage to balance things a bit with hi ego mind controllers?

Skeletor, a Steam forum scan suggests that you can revert to a previous version in the betas tab? So you might not need to locate the save files at all.

Thanks Jim, good to see you're still around. So many years we've been in this forum ha.
Can't find this betas tab on steam though, where is it?

Minotauros, really liked the CoQ comics that you have made  :D

I agree with you guys.
Once the main quest plot is developed and the game isn't anymore in pre-release stage, I guess it will officially become a major roguelike given its size and complexity. I have been having a blast so far.

Anyway, does anyone knows how exactly I recover an old version in order to play a save game from it?
In the FAQ it is mentioned that Steam stores older versions, but not sure where I can access them.

I just had the most memorable game.. true kin artefix, managed to find a spring of infinite fresh water very close to the town, met a few dromad merchants posted nearby and managed to get very strong artifacts.. crafted electrobow and several grenades, found other absolutely monstrous weapons but decided to stick with the bow because of its infinite ammo with low consumption of energy, light emission, and high penetration value. Blasted my way through becoming millionaire in the meanwhille. Killed a few faction leaders, water rituals with others and became respected by several tribes, but hated by robots.. completed all argyve's missions and the girlshings one but then instead of going for the pilgrmage I had the bad idea of accessing golgotha through the trapdoor and I felt like a lion thrown inside a pool of shark - killed hundreds, thousands of those nastly little crabs while exercising on the threadmill but they kept coming and coming so eventually I had no choice than to get transported to the following trapdoor.. and same thing again, another threadmill.. I had Joppa and Grit recoils with full battery so decided to find a safe place away from the enemies and then teleport the hell out of that madness.. tried to phase my way out with shade oil but looked like it was shalerock everywhere around, then decided to blast my way through and explore around little by little.. countless crabs were teared to pieces by my laser bow, my grenades, and my gaslight kriss.. I managed to venutre a few metres north and at one stage a droid and a slime approached me, both very hostile, and trying to rebuke the bot was what led to my demise as that slime was some sort of super green jelly which stunned and killed me quite quickly notwithstanding my high armor value.
That was full on!

Thanks Minotaurus, that is the impression I had. Oh well, I'll have to find a headlamp or a way to see in the dark without wielding anything then.
Yes, the last update is great, adds further politics and diplomacy in the game. Slaying factions leaders will always often have an impact on your relationship with multiple tribes, such as doing the ritual of water with one who is beloved by its kin but disliked by others.

Tzan, personally I prefer to avoid guides and live fully the impact of a new atmosphere and game world, and even more I stay away from grinding (see signature) - but that's just me.
In terms of game balancing, not sure where you were and which equipment you found, however as far as I have seen even with very strong characters there is always the chance of getting teared apart by some slumbering woken up by a passing dragonfly, a pack of snapjaw doing a contest of grenade-throw, or that little critter which attacks you for 1 damage which triggers your venomous spores which angry that huge pack of equimax surrounding you - stuff like that. Below the fifth dungeon floor is usually when things get more serious.
Anyway not fully sure how the developers handled the balancing so far, however it is nice that one can play mutants (which are supposed to be more difficult than true kins, at least in the early game) and there are weekly and daily challenges with predetermined character/world seeds.

EDIT: my character just went burned alive by a dawnglider right after taking some stairs, 'a stone block hits your head, you die' deja-vu.

Nice updates.

I just found some quills and accidentally equipped them.. now can't unequip normally. Is there a way to get rid of them? Really needed that hand for a source of light...
