Re: The moment you were hooked

When I was around 8 years old my Dad bought home his work PC, a Toshiba T3100, a portable 286 with the monochrome orange gas-plasma display. The two games on it were Alley Cat and Leisure Suit Larry . I've been a hardcore PC gamer ever since, and always will be. If I live to be in my 80s, I'll still …

Re: The moment you were hooked

It was some kind of 2D game somewhat similar in layout as that Bombs! game except I needed to push blocks into enemies, crushing them. Pengo? I played games so much and got so good at them that I seem to have permanently improved reflexes because of it, I've always thought this too, I call them " …

Re: Are we opening sealed copies of old games?

I bought a big box copy of Zork Nemesis on eBay a while back. The listing had a lot of pictures of the box opened and the contents but when it arrived it was sealed indistinguishable to an original factory seal. Definitely the same box as was pictured as there was a small mark on the front, so for …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I just finished off Graveyard Keeper on Steam and really enjoyed it, not surprising considering how similar it plays to Stardew Valley which I put more than 400 hrs into last year. I see a few of the DLC are on sale this week too so I might spend the $3 and grab Stranger Sins and continue on with …

Re: What phone do you use currently?

I just bought an Oppo A53s. My previous phone, an Oppo F1 has lasted me 5 years and still work as good as when new, but is carrier locked. With the new phone I can change to a carrier that offers a large data plan, then ditch my home broadband and hotspot my phone data instead. Should save me $25 a …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I played through Golden Axe Warrior on my Sega Master System last month, a nice little RPG that I've been meaning to play through for many years. Now I've started on Tropico 4 which looks to be 95% the same game as Tropico 3.

Re: What do you regret throwing out?

My original 486 and 14" monitor. Atari 2600 and games. A box containing a few floppy drives and my LS-120 drive, dozens of magazine cover CDs, and loads of pirated malaysian CD games. I've learned now to never throw anything away, I'll need it one day...

Re: What game are you playing now?

Finished off The Blues Brothers , a pretty tricky platformer actually but my final run I managed to finish it will full health and 3 extra lives. Could really do with a password save feature after each level, would make it much easier. BluesBrothersCompleted.jpg Interesting that after finishing the …

Re: What game are you playing now?

Sarted playing The Blues Brothers on my 486. It's one of those games that I've loaded up and played many times but have never sat down and focused on trying to progress and finish it. The scrolling is weird though, the screen doesn't seem to consistently center on the character and can make it hard …

Re: A Goblin Hoard : My PC Big Box Collection

Sorry for the dealy, i got busy. 086.EliteGold.jpg Elite Gold Edition, bad condition box unfortunately.
