Good Old Games still good

^ I know some people don't have the best opinion about Stellaris, but I agree that the OST is simply pure aural bliss.

Patches come and go, but the music remains awesome.

Similar with WoW and its expansions, may be of varying quality but all of the soundtracks are quite memorable - I still love the random electric guitar in Netherstorm.

On another note, there will be a lot of disappointed people grabbing the Witcher Goodies Collection without paying attention that it's just the goodie, not the actual games :)

Daikatana for $0.97.  Tempting...

Dunno if this is the right place to ask (Mod feel free to move it?) . Anyway, I have been looking for ages for this old game.

 

It look like xcom but it isnt . It has normal soldier. That can crouch and hide behind stuff.

 

I brought it from a store, at a very low price...and that was years ago . Like 20+ years ago.

But for the life of me, I can't find it in Abondoware or any old games website like Home of the Underdog.

if anyone seen a game like that, plz let me know. 

I'll bet ye've got all sorts o' barmy questions! (She mimics your heroic stance) Greetin's, I have some questions... can ye tell me about this place? Who's the Lady o' Pain? I'm lookin' fer the magic Girdle of Swank Iron, have ye seen it? Do ye know where a portal ta the 2,817th Plane o' the Abyss might be? Do ye know where the Holy Flamin' Frost-Brand Gronk-Slayin' Vorpal Hammer o' Woundin' an' Returnin' an' Shootin'-Lightnin'-Out-Yer-Bum is?

No. 

It was a simple game, with a small map. I don't even remember the name. I often just look at the picture and see if its the one.

Like I said it was like xcom, so you had a team. 

And the soldier wear green maybe or that army outfit like?

I'm afraid there isn't much I could add. I mean the map were small. the soldier were limited unlike in xcom. 

It wasn't one of those old games all Pixel like. I brough it from a store alongside another. And when I moved, I lost both somehow. 

I know the chances of finding it are slim to none. But I though, I ask and if anyone see a game that has soldier crouching and shooting with simple rifle. Let me know.

Commandos?

 

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I was wondering that. Just can't remember how basic the first game was.

Then we probably won't figure it out. Mass Effect 2 was the best guess with what little you remember :(
