The hype train has arrived.  Choo choo motherfuckers.

I want this.

We don't have a computer in the house that will run it. :(

Yeah, the system requirements definitely mean you need a dedicated desktop or gaming laptop at the least.

However that could also just be because modded Skyrim is a heap of garbage due to the 32-bit constraints.  Once Skyrim's Special Edition is released, more modern computers and multi-core processors should, in theory, be able to be taken greater advantage of, which may lead to better performance on less stronger rigs (though that would also have to be balanced against the updated graphics and ENB filter they appear to be using).  They have said, for example, while they don't recommend running Enderal on a laptop with below those specs, even a few members of the dev team are doing just that.

At the very least the Enderal team are aware of Skyrim SE and since SKSE doesn't appear to be a requirement for Enderal, unless it's somehow bundled into the installer itself, they may not have as much trouble coverting to SE as other mods will.

It's also possible that in the meantime someone will reduce the size of the graphics in the game for the sake of performance.  I know a couple of automated programs which make the process easy, so if someone else doesn't do it, I may myself.

I will say this though, Enderal is pretty easy to install.  Not only that, the launcher checks your system for compatibility pretty effectively.

Are the tamriel/morrowind conversions still being worked on?

Also, are any of these modders getting jobs out of this? The scale and quality of some of the larger mods would seem like an easy place to recruit cheap developers and testers.

Skywind and Beyond Skyrim are still in development with some exceptional work for Skyrim, with a suggestion that Beyond Skyrim: Bruma is nearing release, and Tamriel Rebuilt for Morrowind is not only still being worked on, but has recently released info on planned releases for Skyrim: Home of the Nords and its Cyrodiil project.  No news on Awake: The Rise of Mannimarco, which is unfortunate, but hopefully they will publish at some point.

And I'm sure that's the plan for at least some devs.  I know the modders behind the Unofficial Skyrim Patch and Frostfall are working for some indie computer game companies.  The guy who made Falskaar ended up working on Destiny.

Excellent work that tentacled accomplice. Glad to see that someone remembers how to have fun.

I got Rust, which is basically Minecraft for adults. But shitty Minecraft with hardly anything you can do and full of assholes that kill you as soon as you wake up. Or you starve to death and lose all your shit.

I already regret spending money on it, and am wondering whether to keep plugging away at it in the hope it eventually becomes fun, or to just bail and get another game.

Anyone have any suggestions? Prefer adventure/puzzle games, and I don't like graphic novels disguised as games. I'm poor so I can't justify spending more than $30, and it has to run on Mac.

If you like minecrafty games wurm is really good.  It's a mideval survival game with a player modified world.  wurm online is an MMO,  free to play but costs to progress past a certain point (subscription fee, about $10 a month game cash can be earned in game and used to pay it) wurm unlimited is a one time fee game (I dont remember the cost, about $30 I think) and I haven't played that version but you can set up your own world and play on ones other people have set up.  Designed by the guy who designed minecraft with another guy who still runs it, much prettier graphics than minecraft and a generally friendly community if you go on the PVE servers, the PVP ones are kind of empty and hostile.

We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

I might give it a look even though Minecraft already does Minecraft best. Alty's setting up Morrowind for me though, so that might end up being my time suck.

Rust has always been terrible.  The only fun is in playing it with friends and meeting strange assholes/being strange assholes.

I had a quick look on the Steam store, but the only games I can speak from on personal experience would be the enchanced editions of Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale.  They're not graphically intensive, won't break the bank price wise and come with a decent number of online mods.  The replay value is also reasonable, given the number of potential companions and good/evil choices.

If you haven't played Braid, it's a very pretty and clever puzzle game. Right now it's $15, but you only really get 4-6 hours of gameplay from that so wait for a sale for bang for your buck.

There's always Portal, of course, which is fun, funny, and comes with the benefit of near infinite user generated puzzle content. Valve just outright gives that one away on Steam sometimes.

Wurm Online sucked me in for several years.  I played on the Epic PvP servers and still have like a dozen very valuable characters.  If you play on MR Home Server it's mostly PvE with only very occasional PvP and I could give you one hell of a head start.  Enough to start paying the monthly fee using in-game currency immediately, and then some.
