I built a Win98SE system from cast off parts I collected when I first started my podcast. I believe it's a Pentium II. Apologies for the FB photo album link.

So jealous, that's very similar to the Win98SE PC I'd also love to build.

My next goal (when I have some free money) is to build my favorite machine of all time, a 486DX2/66.

Man, if only I had more money, time and space...

ARISE THREAD!

So guys. Guys. OMG guys. This fella made a patch that, I dunno how, but somehow allows Missionforce: Cyberstorm to run on Windows 7-10 without any issues!!!!

I tried it the other day and it worked PERFECTLY. I was so god damned happy because it's seriously one of my top mech games ever.

Different animal. Shogo is a FPS which has mechs in it. Cyberstorm is a turn-based tactical mech combat game with a ton of depth and detail.

I dont think ive ever seen or heard anybody discuss two of my fave games of all time. Both of them were Ps2.

The first was Spartan:Total Warrior. You played as a single guy fighting in a lot of vast battles and on solo missions. It was a really good game that i bought only because of my love for total war games.

The second was a game where you had to escape PoW camps during WW2. It was called Prisoner of War i think. a great strategy game.

Yeah you were a pilot who was placed in a camp and you had to escape. It was a stealth game. After you escaped one camp you were generally caught and placed in a more secure camp.

ARISE THREAD!

I present you with this offering: Computer, Open that Door

You play as a rogue computer AI on a spaceship with a full crew traveling back home. YOu have one primary mission - purge the ship of the crew before the ship gets home and they purge you. Think HAL from 2001.

Oh, BTW, it's free.

That was a fun 30 minutes. Not much replayability but a clever little experience. Thanks!

It never got the following that the Mechwarrior games did, but Earthsiege 2 was completely awesome and had me addicted for quite a long time, and I actually liked it more than the Mechwarrior games!

I remember wanting to play that, but I never found the time. I'm bummed to have missed out on a good mech game

Also, the mention of Star Trek reminded me of one of my favorite adventure games ever:

My friend and I played this over a summer, and its one of the more vivid gaming memories I have. I think that's because I went into expecting it to be terrible!

It’s been a long long time but I think the Sequel was better
