Seriously though, I loved it as a kid...even if I couldn't get past the first half hour.

My experience with old games usually is that I used to be good at them and can't get past the first half hour anymore now ;)

My 2yr old kept sayin' Mickey when he seen Castle of Illusion. I remembered liking it a way beck when, so I picked it up (the remake.)

 

I don't remember the controls being that big of a pain in the old Genesis version.

I'm still good at most of the old games - at least the ones I occasionally fire up again. But this is mostly because I played them so much back when that they're forever burned into the brain, like the memory of one's first love.

Depends on the game as well. Syndicate I suck at now. Dungeon Keeper I am still doing fine.

I am still pretty good at old games that I've played a lot back in the days. Like Jagged Alliance 1, for example. But I've never really played Deadly Games and when I try it now, I suck at it very hard and usually give up way too fast... Even though it's pretty much the same game.

Syndicate I suck at now.

 

There's not a problem miniguns/lasers and full adrenals can't solve :)

 

It's the expansion that really is hard.

The other problem is my compulsion to persuade everyone :)

Yes, you should play JA1 again this year, for it's 20th anniversary. :D I thought i'd give the JA2 mod with ja1 content a try, but something about the original is just not present there.

 

Anyway, DG is the same BUT since it's 1 sector missions only, you don't really get the chance to play like you'd want to. The mission goals are sometimes quite a bother as well. THen there's the mortars that completely change everything. Other than all that and firing from croch position, it's pretty much the same game. :grin: Enemy AI might have gotten an upgrade as well, but i don't really remember.

JA:Deadly Games had this great Alamo mission that I would play over and over again.  It was super hard, your team was holed up in this shack surrounded by boulders, and the enemy would swarm you.

Only just noticed they got Covert Action recently too, so yeah, good times. I mean I have SS2 and F-117A, along with Civ1 and RRT on an old Creative Sound Blaster bundle CD, but still.

But how would I defeat the copy protec..... oh wait, it's just pictures in the manuals.

 

 

(The CD versions were literally the same files as the floppy versions by the way, just copied into directories on the CD. The manuals were reformatted into a compact version such that the pictures were collected on the front pages instead of the main body)

Ah, the joys of defeating that copy protection at an Office Depot, heh.   Those keyboard overlays were fun, except when they started to fall apart.

It's good that Tommo picked up more than just the HE games since we are finally starting to see them again.

The few times mentioned Blackguards released few days ago on GOG as well. If DRM free release may spark your interest more than Steam release :p

Plus, if you live anywhere but NA, it's a fair bit cheaper there.

Edit: The video accompanying the sale is hilarious.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Hopefully this insomnia sale works better. At least we can speed up the time remaining. And there is a time remaining.
