Re: Collecting rants

What? They didn't need them at all? Is there something that you collect that you also "need"? Of course they don't need them, maybe some of them kinda need them to make a retro system, but most of such cards are collected only, not needed/used. Just wanted to say that there is a point where it's no …

Re: Collecting rants

On this subject, I really believe a time will come were 60 years old folks won't hunt for XT-286-386-486s any more, our modern equivalent won't give a damn about them and collections will be liquefied for peanuts. I mean I don't see ISA sound of VGA cards going for that much in 10-20 years, once the …

Re: Best CGA & Hercules games

That's true, games that were originally designed for cga do have their charm (if you have some kind of nostalgia about cga of course). Most games that were designed for EGA/VGA but also have a cga mode look like... I don't know, a cheap counterfeit. There are very few games that have original art …

Let's start with a rather unpopular Sierra AGI game from 1988 that was probably the first to ditch the text parser, contrary to common belief. Manhunter: New York Look what happened in 2002! sierra_000.png sierra_003.png A classic from 1991 is next, Duke Nukem (or Nukum to be correct) was sent from …

Games set in the future, on a date that is now in the past

in Milliways
I hope the title is not too confusing, if so feel free to propose a better one. For a game to qualify for this list the only prerequisite is a concrete reference to a specific date in the future (relatively to the game's release date), but this date to be in the past now. Example: a game released in …
