Good old Jeff God I still got his Merak VHS video, he was smoking big time back then while play with this Trip-a-Tron ...
Is that online?


A tiny bit of Google-fu turned up this: https://youtu.be/PJ2XD5yJ6To

Audio might have been redone from the original from what I read but gonna check out this vid now as I love minter's work.

Edit: wow! Can't believe I've never seen this before, it's like some pre-demoscene timewarp space trip. I wonder what other demoscene-like videos existed like this before the internet, as this is definitely the first i've seen.

Jeff minter and Scott Draves need to just get together and create the most intense visualizer that the world has ever seen. I would happily pay whatever price they'd ask.
That's neat. I like watching these.

Use Futurama's Fry's story. I'd watch that as a movie/film!

Because of Red Faction: Guerrilla free weekend. I played it for about 4/four h(ou)rs.

I don't care what anybody says. That game is fun as fuck. Yeah it gets kind of repetitive later on, but who cares when you have such an enjoyable physics toy at your disposal? I originally...acquired it years ago when it was first released (why no demos? >:\) and ended up buying it because it was awesome. I still go back to it from time to time. The remote bombs you get later are a blast! (Punny!)
Nice. I posted a brief review and comments about it in my http://aqfl.net/node/11386 blog.

Also crappy timing for space fans since X series also is having a free weekend.
All these free game samplers coming out! Also, I got the code to work since I needed to activate my account. I can't play it since I need to buy a ship and a newer system (crazy!).

Whatever. I am enjoying old Red Faction: Guerilla free weekend so far.

If you're jonesing for a space game, the X series is having a free weekend. Any of the X3 (Terran Conflict, Reunion, Albion Prelude)games are pretty good and were made many years ago so should run on an older system. I've not played it, but everyone says skip Rebirth.
Too many games!!!! I barely played Red Faction: Guerilla! My friend said Rebirth is a lot better now?

Didn't know I had it - so there ya go, someone doesn't have to sign up.

Please be courteous and drop a note here if you used it so people don't keep trying.
"Mine." --Finding Nemo's seagull's voice. Thank you, xXBatmanXx! I hope it's fun as the old Diablo (1-2) games.

Interesting. I saw the buttons for Facebook and Twitter but all I did was give it my email. I wonder if I already linked Facebook to Bundle Stars or something. Probably.
Probably. I think you can check to see if your Facebook account has Bundle Stars connected?

Yep, it is. I guess I forgot I linked them.
There, we go. Thanks.

FYI, this also requires you to login through facebook.

What? I didn't have to do that. I put in my email address and boom, key. I already have a Bundle Stars account though....maybe that is why.
It asked me to log into Facebook.
