    The amount of hours spent during my childhood playing Archon was legendary.

    Did you know someone put a remake out on Steam? I bought it about 8 years ago!

    What's that, you ask? How is it? Dunno, I never tried it. I have played versions of it on Atari 800 and the NES when I was younger, though.

    I was sorely disappointed in the remake. It was muddy, confusing and sluggish.

    ...this was my feeling too after reading reviews. Never pulled the trigger on it and don't feel bad about it one bit. Probably best for it to be nostalgia in my head.

    The idea of having non-binary space contention in a board game setting has always been amazing. The turn-based, real-time aspect has been woefully underappreciated or copied in other games. Archon was truly ahead of its time.

    I loved Archon back on the old 286. Then after I finally figured out how the heck that game worked I discovered Battle Chess and I never went back to regular chess ever again.

    Wow I haven't thought about Battle Chess in many years. Is there anything like it out now?

    Does Warhammer 40,000: Regicide fit the bill?



    EDIT: It looks like X-com on a chess board or something.

    Nope, just wondering if the game had real-time combat as well. Something I remember being sorely disappointed about after being such a big Archon fan.

    Fun side note about Chess, I had an idea for a game called Real-Time Chess (or RTC for short). The idea was that the game plays exactly like Chess but players don't have to take turns. Opponent taking too long, fuck it, move again. The only exception was that there was an automated 2-3 second delay between taking your turns (indicated by a visual guide or nearby timer), that got lessened over time to make for a frantic endgame.

    I might one day seriously make this game.

    @MNC Dover I'd play that.

    There's a mobile game called Really Bad Chess as well, which is chess but with completely random pieces. It's surprisingly good fun.

    Wait, like "Toss the Board" is a concede button you can use to flip the board, sending pieces everywhere? That sounds perfect!

    sounds like someone needs to play some Tabletop Simulator. Every game I've played with @CorriganX has required immediate deactivation of the "Flip Table" button.

    Maybe MK 11 having a completely bullshit singleplayer content (especially monetisation) and Ronda Rousey would make you reconsider. But what do I know, the very violence of that game turns me off.

    Literally the only bad thing about the single player content is the monetisation, I don’t see how it’s completely bullshit? It’s got an awesome story and single player stuff to do. Unlocking is a pain but also possible to get everything since things like costumes don’t double up. Like it sucks but it’s not burn it in a fire bad.

    Ronda Rousey is inexplicably famous despite being a transphobic sandy hook truther who can't act. I think her agent is doing their job well.

    Yeah Id totally support people not buying the game cos she’s involved, she’s human garbage and its a bad call in a game series that otherwise has been getting more and more progressive (to the point that grumblegaters actively rage against it)

    I haven’t paid a ton of attention to the drama, but most of the complaining about MK11 on oneangrygamer and KotakuInAction seems to come from the idea that a series that has always been fairly edgy and prone to pushing the boundaries of what is allowable in games is suddenly very concerned about its image with regards to women in skimpy outfits, while being all on-board with more and more detailed depictions of rather gruesome ways to kill people.

    Myself, I’ve just bought the last two games in the series on deep discount to play through the story modes, which are generally very good - MKX’s story mode in particular could stand alone as a reasonably good animated movie even if you took the fighting bits out of it - so I will probably do that for MK11 once it hits ten bucks or so.

    I admit I was being snide at Royce. For real though, these days I have an averse reaction to people spending money when their sole or deciding reason is to spite the dregs pissed off at whatever outrage du jour. Goes for everything, from funding a rich creep's lawyer because sane people think he's rich and a creep, to in this case buying a full price video game because the altright cannot tolerate a black man doing something other than being submissive.

    Might just be me being a bit money tight these days. Spend your money on Destroyah for me, you'll be more satisfied. Or just buy whatever you want if you are interested in it, I'm not a parent.

    I watched a cutscene from Mortal Kombat XI where a female character screams as she gets her head split in half by a giant shard of glass with a closeup of her exposed brains, so the whole "we can't have them in skimpy clothing because we respect women" thing feels a little hollow.

    Meanwhile literally zero people give a shit that every male character is chiseled out of marble and a decent portion of them spend the game shirtless. I'm pretty sure the internet is stupid.
