Second Life

I'm not sure if this is technically a game or not- I know that it's Virtual Reality though. I'm curious to know if anyone is involved with this site and what they think of it?

Second Life

I've not heard of this game; so, cannot comment. HOWEVER; I've recently come across a site, (GOG.com - Good Old Games), and at that site they have converted/repurposed MANY old games to work on newer systems! (ie: DOS Games, and Classic MAC Games to work in Win Vista/7/8.x and MAC OS X.) MOST of these games are CHEAP!!! ($5.99 each.) So, I searched for some of my old favorites - 7th Guest, 11th Hour, Wing Commander III, AND THEY'RE ALL THERE!!!!! So, for $5.99 a piece I bought these three favorites. I haven't tested WC III yet; I need to pick up a USB Joystick first, but I got 7th Guest installed, AND WORKING, on my "Hackintosh". (MAC on a PC.) My Hackintosh is on OS X, 10.11.4 and 7th Guest, (originally a DOS Game), works PERFECTLY!!!

I HIGHLY recommend GOG.com for those who want to relive their favorite old games!

Steam also got into the act

I now have 7th Guest on CD ROM, Steam, and GOG

I just find Steam the most convenient place to keep track of everything. And they are also getting a TON of console games, like FF1 to 10.

RE: Second Life

So, I signed up for Second Life. I've jumped in 3 times now and it's been interesting. Found out that it's 9.50 a month for premium, which you need to build a private area. We'll see if I get that involved. Over all impression is that it's comparable V-World on Caprica , there's even a V-R head set you can use vs viewing on a computer monitor.

RE: Second Life

I have discovered / noticed one glitch with the program so far. 2nd Life is a resource hog. I need to suspend BOINC when I'm in the program.
