Re: Notoriously difficult-to-run DOS games?

The only problem I ever had with Beneath A Steel Sky was the fact that the sound was very very quiet. I had this on every system I tried but they all had either a SB16 or a AWE64 so always Creative.

Hi. I'm the guy who played Monkey Island 1 as his first PC game ever in '92, and didnt touch another point adventure game until Monkey Island 2 in 2009~ish (remaster) and then again in 2019 when I got the retro fever. The Lucas Arts catalogue is pretty solid. Recently I've played from Fate of …

Re: What game are you playing now?

I hope you enjoy Monkey Island. Sorry to tell you this but I didn't really enjoy it. It's basically an average game. The characters were okay and the plot of saving the Governor was interesting but I really didn't like how the game relied on jokes and puzzles to move the story. The story wasn't …
