This should probably be on a blog or something. But I don't care. I finally have WC 1 and 2. For PC! I never played the PC version. Only the SNES version. Ah, the memories.

So what throwback games have you bought lately? Or at all?

From gog the old games from my childhood that i've gotten are Red Baron, darklands, Master of Orion 1+2, betrayal at krondor.
From steam i've gotten the x-com collection.

None of the purchases were extremely recent though (i've mostly bought games i missed out on). (i replaced most of my childhood floppy games with gog.com versions quite early, just missing replacements for a few of the old SSI goldbox games (i got the original floppies but some of them are in fairly bad condition after all these years and gog doesn't have those games (yet))
I don't suffer from insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it.

I got a friend to get River City Ransom on the Wii VC. It's still a kick-ass game.

The Scott Pilgrim game is like a love letter to River City Ransom

I'll have to play that sometime. I should probably go hunting for old-school games. I'm feeling nostalgic.

Is anyone doing a remake or sequel to River City Ransom?

GoG has the unupdated version of Dungeon Keeper 2 .... which means it usesa very outdated version of .net, and is extremely unstable, regardless of how it's ran.

 Reactions To Technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

I finally beat the original X-Com (1994) just a couple years back. It's a great game, and astonishingly difficult.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_control_2 is another favorite.

Been going through the Wing Commanders myself, recently. WC2 is a bit difficult to run under DOSBOX, but I did manage to get through WC1 and WC3. Even tried WC1 for the Mega-CD(a hidden gem for the format) and SNES. Quite surprised they got WC:Prophecy on the Gameboy Advance...

Interesting that they were almost about to unleash WC2 for the SNES...but it got cancelled. Using the SFX chip that would have been a great game for the format.
