The ironic thing is that all of this has hardly produced any backlash against Ashley Madison.

It's like the people that get sued for pirated porn - no ones going to speak out too loudly, for fear of self incrimination.

Never played these, as I was on a teenagers budget at the time. Tempting...

I saw these this morning from their news letter. I was in my early teens when these came out too. Pool of Radiance and Eye of the Beholder were the first two cRPGs I ever played. A friend bought them only to find out his dad's computer wouldn't run them. He brought them over to my house and we played them on my dad's computer one summer. It was fun playing them together, mapping out the dungeons. We never finished either one before school started back, and we never came back to them. I ended up buying them off him for $10 a piece.

I remember seeing them in the local Babbages, but (like Ultima, sadly) for some reason, I always passed them by. I guess I was more into sims, like Wing Commander, and F-19. I didn't actually step into D+D until Baldur's Gate 2 (and boy, was I in for a shock).


I'm tempted to grab these, but I'd probably never get around to playing them.

My exact problem as well. So much stuff I want to play, and only so many hours in the day. Hope all this shit still runs when we're in the retirement home.

She should have put the restraining order on the Reddit admins.

Each sub is independently managed. Reddit as a company generally just sits back and shrugs. That's why you end up with such filth there (although there's also some great subs as well).

Go see Man From UNCLE. Fun little Action/Spy comedy. Surprised how much I enjoyed it, as I went in with pretty low expectations.


Also, if you haven't seen them yet: Kingsman, and It Follows. Both are utterly fantastic.


Kingsman was fucking awesome, so much so that I regretted waiting so long to see it (on NF). Hope the sequel gets the green light...

Never played the Shadowrun games. Are they good? I need something to hold me over until Life Is Strange Episode 5 next month.

It's a fun, turned based cyberpunk series. There's no loot, and more of an emphasis on story.

I backed both on KS, and have no regrets.

It does. I'm avoiding this trailer after I liked the first one so much. 2015 has been a killer year for movies, and the 800 pound gorilla hasn't even stepped in the room yet.

For the record the original Wing Commander was not all that great.

For the record: It Really Was.

It was. But it was also a totally unfair comparison: One being a basic arcade shooter, and one being a 3d accelerated lite sim featuring energy management.

Great, now we'll never see that Duke Nukem HD Reloaded remake from Interceptor. And now Gearbox and Randy can sit on more IP's that they have done little service too. What a soddin' wanker.

Was that Bombshell, or was Bombshell something else? They say they're "eager to complete development of the ‘Bombshell’ game and get it in the hands of our fans."

Oh, and they're not going to sit on that IP, they're going to exploit the fuck out of it.
