PoP is indeed a bit magical - Jordan Mechner's journal is a great read and made me appreciate the game all the more. He didn't do the VGA version but was reportedly blown away when he saw it.

I've picked up where I left off with an old save of Risen 3 - a game I really disliked on release, but which I've come to really enjoy over the years. It's probably the most polished Piranha Bytes game I've played, including their latest effort (ELEX). There are a stack of mechanics that I don't …

Re: Post pics of your CRT monitors

Nice score. Does the documentation have blank space for branding to be added? Like you'd ship to a re-seller. Any local re-sellers go bust around 2005?

Welcome back RR! I'm glad you're feeling wiser with age, I sure am not. I'm 42 so entering the well documented 'mid life crisis' phase and I can confirm that it's a thing - dissatisfaction and anxiety are way up so I'll take whatever motivation I can get at this stage - even if that includes FOMO or …
