Re: Make Windows 11 look like Windows 98

in Windows
There was an "article" at reddit about this. https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows11/comments/zvg37h/i_now_have_the_ultimate_win9598_theme_for_windows/ It involves WindowBlinds and new icons. And Classic Shell, the proclaimed universal solution to everything old-school by every "expert". Just like …

Re: Online copies of games are not owned

Command & Conquer 4 comes to my mind as the first example of this crap in games. I hated that game. It played crap, and it installed and ran even crappier. Back then I didn't have internet connection always available even. Since then, we've been going down non-stop as it seems. retro is in style …

This is why we prefer to collect physical game copies. Unfortunately, that's not enough for certain games released in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Some of those have online authentication DRM, and the servers which used to facilitate that are no longer functional. Meaning, you can't legitimately …

we don’t own a damned thing That's it. You never buy games, music, movies...but only a right to use them in a context. There's even more fun with "collector editions", which include much crap but no games at all . UNBOXING THE CREW 2 MOTOR EDITION / COLLECTOR'S EDITION 4K https://www.youtube.com/ …

Ubisoft has been scummy for years, this is just their latest escapade. I do wish someone would take them to court over revoking the download license, just to see how EU laws would treat that. In my view, PC game ownership became problematic during the late 2000s and early 2010s, as online …

Any digital game that you purchase on steam or epic, make sure to make a backup of the installed files. If you get it from gog, go to your account page on the website and download its offline installer. Don't buy stuff from MS store or publisher stores. Don't buy online only games, and if you do, …

Always online games didnt require always paying fees so it felt like a tear at one point that …

I finished playing the available chapters of the Black Mesa version of Blue Shift. It is very much like Black Mesa, and I give it a positive rating overall, but there are a couple of puzzles that drove me bananas and left me feeling more like I was doing algebra homework rather than playing a game. …

I somehow ended up revisiting Unreal II: The Awakening I should start by mentioning I haven't played the first Unreal much at all. I've twice tried to give it a go mostly because I absolutely love all the tracker music Alexander Brandon, Michiel van den Bos and all the others made back in the day …

Yeah I played and beat mean streets back in the day but never had a decent machine to run the sequels when they came out. Played the last Tex Murphy game and liked it a couple of years ago. My backlog is so huge I doubt I'll ever play the ones I missed since other games rank higher for me on my …
