    I didn't get everything, but I decided I had gotten enough stuff in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 to declare myself done. Since then I have started a second play through of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

    I've been playing Baldur's Gate EE released by Beamdog concurrently with their remastering of Planescape Torment. With BG, I played it all the way through when it first came out. I was never able to do the same with Torment because my copy had a bug that made it unplayable, and I wasn't going to shell out yet more money on something with iffy quality control. It has been a nice little walk down nostalgia lane. Torment's story in particular so far is intriguing.

    Been replaying Red Faction Re-MARS-tered. I first tried playing the unremastered version a few years ago, but my card at the time was not the greatest and made playing it more difficult than it needed to be. When the Remastered version was released, they gave everyone on Steam who had it the upgrade, and I've gotten an upgrade to a 1050Ti about a year ago, so I felt it was time to try revisiting it. When I was originally playing it, I had gotten stonewalled on the last EOS mission before going to the Maurauders, the one where you have to protect Samaya from the EDF. Well, I've now managed to play it further than that, so that's a good feeling.

    I love that Saints Row is in the same universe as Red Faction

    Given how strong the programs have become, I really don't think they need to.

    Found an old DOS game and trying to get it to play nice with Windows 10.

    "This app isn't compatible with 64 bit version of windows"

    Lovely fun awaits

    Anyone played Vinyl Goddess From Mars?

    Funny I got it working under windows 7.

    Yeah, first time it occured to me they were in the same universe was playing Saints Row 3 and realizing it was the same Ultor in both games, and then of course the end of SR3 has you going to Mars.

    In Saints Row 2 there is a vehicle from Red Faction in the museum, its one of the air vehicles, and there's random people that mention cybernetics and Mars, and other stuff. Also in SR3 there is one of the mecha suits there if you have the dlc which you see on a mission.

    I played SR2 not that long ago, but I don't remember all that or maybe I did and didn't make the connection.

    I want to start Devil May Cry 5 since it just launched on Game Pass.

    But I'm struggling to find time since I'm watching Star Trek TOS for the first time

    My current squeeze game wise is "Cold Waters", a cold war submarine simulator.

    Have you tried using it under DOSbox? DOS just isn't a thing with modern windows implementations. Also, that old game might be a 16 bit application, something which flat out isn't supported under 64 bit windows operating systems, but is supported in the 32bit versions of windows.

    That's how I fixed it. Got Dosbox and managed to create a shortcut on the desktop to the game and now am having fun down memory lane.

    Tetris Pro the Amiga version. I just love that version of Tetris, the options are awesome. Plus you get to see a picture each time you complete a level, as a reward.:D

    I am guessing that's a pun, not a misspelling...;)

    That and a way to get around censorship because if it were "properly" spelled it would probably get a stupid AO rating.
