Temp Edge scans, the pictures of queues can no doubt be seen elsewhere. Spot the (lacklustre, sadly) SamSho2 poster for some gaming enthusiast 1994 context: dropbox.com/s/0upuik78a3u4i72/e17a.jpg?raw=1 dropbox.com/s/kf7a4uk9fvnr8a1/e17b.jpg?raw=1

A longer trip through playing the 1975-76 original (emphasis required). http://advent.jenandcal.familyds.org is well done.

One of many choices and it really is an obvious one. Memory jogged not so much by Talos (where was the MUD?) but by going over unplayed (an actually finished typing-in BASIC/Something-Mountain book is as far as that goes) BBC Micro retail IF games, or to be more exact, the 1987 DOS release back cover of Countdown to Doom.

You're very well versed with the short form / backloggery's word limits, sharc. :lol

(my post should have been immediately flagged as nonsense, with some value, and I refuse to write this next to it)

i don't mean substantive in regards to the game, but to myself :V

usually i'll offer a quick blurb about stuff i finish but i ain't know a half-damned thing about pinball so what value are my impressions about something i barely understand

makes me want to try playing on real tables, though...

Yeah, Quarantine isn't too great, but I get nostalgia from it and I really like the songs in the game.

Yeah, that sounds about like what I expected Indy's Desktop Adventures to be. Yoda Stories at least has some flavor in its item trading—power converters and whatnot—but I have yet to complete a single mission (even on the smallest map setting) because there's probably some random switch I haven't figured out I can flip.

I never thought I'd think of Ys as a gameplay system to aspire to, but ramming into enemies would be a huge improvement here. I don't think it would be so bad if each enemy had a unique movement pattern, but everything teleports into a randomly selected adjacent square, making them all impossible to hit and dodge.

I myself am an Americanism, so I have no objections to an ARTIFACT.
