– Um, there is a pretty big soccer match today (outside of Argentina and Switzerland which was pretty boring for 115 minutes, but crazy exciting at the end.) Dan and I will have more to say about that later.
– Thanks to the GOG.com sales last week, I’m now a proud owner of yet another copy of the entire Wing Commander series, but this time in digital form. (Only cost $6 during the sales last week, well worth that price tag.)
One of the great things about the internet is that you don’t even have to work all that hard to configure the titles to run nearly perfectly on any system now a days. People on Youtube have done a tremendous job showing you all of the files to edit and settings to put in place so that you can get the games working beautifully in a very small amount of time.
The thing that they can’t help you with is the fact that asteroids are just horrible in the first game. I’ve died twice on missions where I’ve fragged multiple Kilrathi, only to have a giant asteroid undo all of that good work in seconds. Definitely frustrating, but part of playing a 25 year old game.
– Amazon has NHL 09 and Madden NFL 08 (the last two releases of each for the PC) on sale for $2. There is a pretty good modding community for NHL 09 and they have been updating teams, rosters, and schedules since the games release. Worth a look for the price.
– Enjoy watching the match!
