    You'll probably be able to switch between modes, no?

    I bet that 'paragraph 2' is a hyperlink, like in Tyranny.

    You can't in BTT. Theydidn't even bother to have all classic animations an option for nostalgia fans. Maybe good... maybe bad? Waste of time & space? Slapping a new coat of paint over the old with exact same gameplay seems sloppy here. And i'd hope the paragraphs are "in-game." Who care to switch to the pdf or print it out these days. Sure, i can pull out my old books but newer games would probably be annoyed. Ive seen manuals of console games and most ive seen are barely a few sheets of paper.

    Wasteland reminds me of the days when you had to go to a computer store to buy games and often ended up rolling the dice on something you knew nothing about before seeing it at the store. Bought this for the C64 with my own money as a kid because it looked like a cross between Bard’s Tale (combat) and Ultima (world map) to me - except with guns. Was very pleased that I didn’t waste my money. Then the game disk corrupted.

    If they’ve made some quality of life updates to the interface, maybe I’ll finally try to finish it.....

    It could be something like:

    "This game requires players to download an app to their smartphones in order to access in-game journals."

    Of course the app will also require permissions for full access to your contacts, photos, etc.

    Funny is the old cd rom shareware packages you could buy for 1-3$. I recall wasteland packaged on one or two. Of course every EA compilation package hac this somewhere it seems. I really have no clue to hiw many copies from different sources i ened up with this. I thought it was amazing when it came out on c64 but thats eroded over time on the pc. Maybe i need to play through it again.

    Haha. I forgot about having game disks instead of save slots... Me and my brothers each had our own disk but I thought the game would occasionally ask you to insert the original. Or you had to load the game up from the original and then swap in your game disk.

    Along the same lines, I was recently talking to someone about having to create boot disks for DOS games. I only had a vague understanding of what the stuff in a Config.sys file meant. Sometimes it would take hours but eventually I would get it to work. There were naysayers, but getting Wing Commander to run on a 386 with EGA graphics was a crowning achievement.

    Oh yeah getting Privateer to run on the pc was a bitch. Thanks to my neighbour and his custom-made bootmenu it finally worked.
