    Just 30 years early. Now, hoes and bitches indeed use computers to look up on style and makeup videos, and to make men miserable.

    I used to play this game alot towards the end of my Amiga days, i think it was the actual last game i loaded up before putting it up in the attic, its about a kid who goes out into the wilds with an uzi to murder robots to rad music and big explosions just because they stole his marbles.

    Wow. Been a while since I've heard a .mod track.

    Too bad modern players mess up the stereo playback of them.

    That game has great graphics for an ECS game (though it suffered slowdowns in some places), and had cool stuff like real time palette changes when you go into caves or underwater.

    Well, brothers, i finally got my Commodore (pbuh) setup done.

    [​IMG]

    Feels nice to finally have a dedicated corner for mah bois again, like in the olden days, and i sat for like 6 hours yesterday just loading old games, demoes and stuff.
    Both computers have been recapped with new kits, and i even did some extra "anti-volt" mods on the C64, and is planning on buying a new PSU for both of them, since the old ones i have are going on 30 by now. I also went home and cleaned out all the discs i could find in my parents attic, ended up with 5 floppy boxes full, i had more but i guess they are lost, somehow.

    I also bought one of these bad bois for the A500:



    And is prob gonna do what he did in the video aswell, i have one of those old external floppy drives laying around, which is dead, that i can grab the case from.

    Now that['s some hardcore retrogaming. My favorite Commodore computer was the C64. I played so many great games on it including my first RPGs - Battletech, Pool of Radiance, Dragon Wars, Ultima 6 (which I thought was a completely ruined experience on the C64 due to a ridiculous and unacceptable amount of disk swapping). A few years later I got an Amiga 500 but it just didn't compare to the fun factor of my C64 though admittedly I only played a few games on it before selling it to a local public access TV channel that used it as a video toaster. As for my C64, I remember being completely blown away by the title music to Neuromancer and digitized Devo. Sound-wise the C64 version of Neuromancer was far superior to the Amiga port though the Amiga had better graphics. It's so great to see this topic and all the new stuff still being produced for these old platforms.

    I don't drink and a weekend of drinking in Eesti is 30€ max.
    The current bid on that is 70€ with 30€ shipping, it will probably be a lot more expensive when it reaches the last few hours.
    I have the money on hand I just can't really bring myself to justify it too much.
