    luj1 from what I recall, the “best” version of powerslave was spread across multiple builds or platforms. One had the best maps, another the best weapon textures, etc. So if they were going to do a damn good job, they were going to have to cut and splice their remastered version together from multiple codebases.

    I wonder if those talking heads influenced Fallout, or vice versa? Some of the KKnD heads really remind me of Harold.

    Powerslide (1998) re-release on Steam. GOG re-release was done by Atari, but this one is by Cosmi/ValuSoft for some reason:

    Honestly, the thing that caused more of an impression was Powerslide being managed by Atari for GOG, somehow i keep forgetting that Atari still exists, even though that Pong RPG game(yes, really) just came out and they announced a Missile Command remake/new version.

    Don't know why i keep forgetting about Atari still existing.
