Re: Babylon 5 remake?

in Milliways
I remember when I heard about the BattleStar Galatica (BSG) reboot I groaned but I ended up really really liking it. I will wait and see on Babylon 5... I have watched all episodes including the director commentary so there are quite a few shows that came about because of corporate decisions and …

Re: YOUR favorate game era.

in Milliways
1997 to about 2003... whereby I have to say I tended to not have the latest and greatest in hardware so I was often installing games after they had been out for a year or two. I think WarHammer 40k Dark Crusade (2006) was that last game I ever bought (until StarCraft 2 came out) and I had to crank …

Re: Why people still love XP

I am currently …

Re: Are Voodoo graphics card THAT good ?

I beta tested for 3Dfx and had regular contact with the engineers. I can pretty much confirm most of what is being said here. 3Dfx missed the 32 bit train, though to be honest it was a little silly in the beginning because while some card could do 32 bit a lot of people stick to 16 bit as it had a …

Re: What game made you upgrade to Windows 95 back in the day?

in Milliways
My first computer came with Windows 95. I picked up Strike Commander but could not get it to run. I called the 1-800 number and a guy (I presume in Texas) talked me through the whole process of making a boot disk. Since there were few Windows-only games I learned how to get around DOS... I had …
