Re: RANT (and DISCUSSION): Disney Characters, Disney Plots

And if anyone thinks "Oh, it doesn't matter because it's only for kids" ... well ...? Kids are impressionable. Some of them, at least, will grow up thinking these films are really what happened. No wonder there are so many articles online that try to correct the damage created by Disney films. So y...

Re: RANT (and DISCUSSION): Disney Characters, Disney Plots

I do see where some of your points are coming from. The endless live-action remakes of their animated canon are perhaps becoming a bit much. Disney does tend to latch onto trends, and remakes seem to be their new thing since the DTV sequels were squashed. I'm partial to the films produced during Wal...

Rath - were you the one who bought the floppy disk "Dagger of Amon Ra" that was recently on eBay Australia?

Re: Describe the least-appealing game

An endless open-world fighter featuring a map as large as earth, with unstoppable respawning enemies and non-regenerating health. No health packs, armor or weapon upgrades can be earned through play and must instead be purchased for exorbitant sums, while excessive DRM prevents even legal owners fro...

That's fantastic! I can't wait to give this concept a try. Very creative!

Re: KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

Sorry it took me so long to provide the itemization, it's been a busy month. Some of this is educated guesswork but I hope it proves helpful.

Re: Collector, How could you!!!

For me, installing and setting up the games is half the fun. Back in the "old" days, I sometimes would uninstall games just to reinstall them, as I loved the sound of floppy disk drives at work. (Weird, I know.) Now I have fun writing configuration and batch files to launch them...and using Collecto...

Re: What are you playing now?

Replaying "Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands" now. So thankful for Xbox One backwards compatibility. I never finished the "HD" version before, got stuck at the final boss. Better luck this time, I'm hoping. I also love the Wii version - same title, completely different game. Ah, I miss my Wii, a...

Not to take the spotlight off Rudy, but I had the good fortune to find this last week:
KQ6.jpg
The box may have been opened, but the disc and guidebook are still sealed up together. So nice to feel that 90s shrink wrap intact.

Re: KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

The sad thing is there's really no "definitive" edition of this game. 2.00b fixed a lot of problems but also introduced some new ones. Nothing game-breaking, but a few animations were incorrectly changed and some music cues cut off. I managed to fix one of the problems via a custom patch, but some ...

KQ7 - Wooden Nickel

Talk about a blast from the past. Last night, for the first time in over 25 years, I encountered the wooden nickel bug in the Faux Shop! Totally my fault, as I'd forgotten to apply the patch (though honestly I didn't think I needed to; assumed ScummVM would've incorporated it along with their other ...

Re: Laura Bow and the Mechanical Codex

I always assumed that TCB took place in the '20s when she was still in college, but Dagger was several years later, after when she graduated. All of the Art Deco and other things in Dagger scream '30s. Laura's notebook states the year is 1926, a year after TCB. But the overall design of the game do...
