In fact, it's made me uneasy more than once when I walked over a different surface (like say a fence was knocked over by something the second time walking through, and now it makes the sound of chain link). It adds quite a bit.

I believe I played a bit of The Dark Descent, but it was a while back it feels like, and I remember only playing a short bit and never finishing it. As with most other horror games. redface.gif

I wish I had your nerves. I'd say you experience these games properly. That's what I say to people who refuse to play horror games out of fear. "A horror game scares you? That's exactly why you should play it. That's what the creators intended."

I highly recommend going back and playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and also the Penumbra collection. thumb.gif

I never made it far enough in the Dark Descent to see the "monster" or whatever it is that I've seen in videos of people further into the game.

I hear ya though, it's a tough balancing act I suppose between being numb to the scary situations, and so scared you can't even play. I'm very curious and engrossed in this world they've created though, so I'm going to do my best to push through. You're right, it is good to be scared by it as that's what it's supposed to do, sometimes I just can't take any more though! I'm amazed I got through as much of Alien Isolation in the Oculus Rift as I did. And I mainly stopped playing that because I reached a point that I just kept dying over and over, so I became frustraed. Part of that was probably BECAUSE I was playing it in the Rift though.

I share your view on nerves, but with people and scary movies. I keep waiting for one to really scare me! smile.gif

Nvidia driver 355.98 crashes constantly with the GOG version. Lowering the overclock, which was stable with all my other games, didn't change anything. Anyone else having issues with Nv driver?

Edit: Gonna try 356.04, see if changes anything.

Reloaded83 09-23-2015 11:17 AM

What kind of crash? When I first tried to play, it would get to the title screen with "Frictional Games" and then freeze. Then I could click and close the program. I verified the files and added the 2 exe files to MSI OSD program, and it worked after that. Pretty sure it was Afterburner causing the problem, as it has for me in other games a few times as well.

GetToTheChopaa 09-23-2015 11:28 AM

Like I said, it's the NVidia driver that crashes. I was able to play with Afterburner on, no problem, game didn't freeze or crash, except for the NV driver to crash and recover every 20-30 minutes. Just installed 456.04 driver, gonna play a little see what's what...

Reloaded83 09-23-2015 11:42 AM

Sorry, I guess I mis-read what you wrote. Thought you just meant it was crashing with that driver. Not the driver itself.

boredgunner 09-23-2015 11:50 AM

No driver issues here although I forget which driver I use. It's one of the 355 WHQL ones. I have the Steam version.

There are many monsters in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Though I suppose telling you this doesn't encourage you lol.

Oh. Well poop. If I can make it through this game, I'll go back and re-try the past ones. smile.gif

All right, looks like everything is fine. No more driver crashes with 356.04. Like the game so far (Lambda).

Reloaded83 09-23-2015 09:20 PM

Another hour in and still going strong. Mostly.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Had my first encounter with the pacing robot. Somehow saw me in my hiding spot. So, my character now seems injured and can't run as fast. Limps. Is there some way to fix that? Is there health or other healing things in this game, or just time? I saved and quit about 10 minutes after that, after dodging the thing yet again to get up to the comms center. I'd say that's good enough progress for now.

I'm still VERY much enthralled with the world they've created and even more curious now. Very cool game so far. thumb.gif
