I'm still a little bitter about Microsoft having bought out Bungie in the first place. Halo was originally developed for the Macintosh platform. Imagine how different things might have been.

If you guys like retro games, here is a free remake (by the original developers) of "Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space" from the mid-90's.

Main page and manual:
https://www.raceintospace.org/

If you don't want to search for it from the main page, here are the official executables on SourceForge posted by the developers:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/racein ... Space/1.1/

It is a turn based space simulation strategy game, where you take control on either the USA or the USSR space program, and it can be very challenging (reading the manual is a must).

If you use Windows, you may have to use DOSBox with this, but as I use Linux, I just built it from source.

This is the only game I encountered with so far, that has the most historical feel in scope of the Space Race.
If you know any similar (besides of course KSP or a modded Orbiter), please share!

Have fun!
Core i5 2400 @ 3.10GHz, GF GTX 1050Ti 4GB, 8GB DDR3 RAM, CentOS 7

Did you guys play Cities: Skyblocks?
It's interesting and in discount, I'm very curious about it but I don't have a lot of free time...

I am usually playing Heroes of Might and Magic games, especially the third (but not the one released by Ubisoft).

What kind of games do you prefer? If these are shooters then have a look at Valorant, Overwatch or Apex Legends.

It is strange because I played League of Legends a lot and didn't have any troubles accomplishing it. Valorant and LoL have the same developer.

Probably most of you already has it... but Elite: Dangerous is free on Epic Store until November 26!

If any of you didn't play the game it's a good opportunity to do it now  ;)

I also play Heroes of Might and Magic games. To tell the truth, recently, I returned to League of legends. I didn't play it for a long time. When I started to play, I thought that I might take another hero, and I thought it would be perfect to have 2 accounts simultaneously. So, I found on the internet unranked smurfs, and I ordered one of them. It is excellent to play with different heroes in one game, especially when other players don't know that you are on both accounts.

Hi, I play slots. I used to play for virtual money, but now I play only for real money. As you delve deeper into the topic, you will learn that some slots have higher variance than others. There are games that often pay smaller amounts (low variance), while others pay less often, but still, yield larger prizes. You can win, so I play for money.

It seems people act differently when playing for real and for virtual money. So does it make sense to practice with fake money if my goal is to learn to play for real?

Heroes of Might and Magic is a great series! Yes, it's very fun to play this way. That's great that we have an online launcher to have experience playing with someone else.
