    It'd be a lot easier if you just downloaded the PC version. And no, don't ask me where you can find it....

    FFE was a phenomenal game, but the bugs ruined it. There were just too many to remember, and the plot was poor, but the detail and sheer scope are unsurpassed. There were 5 different newspapers each of which had a specific weekly edition for about 5 years of game time ( I once called New Scientist 'universal scientist' :lol: ) and every star in the galaxy was visitable.

    Privateer2 The darkening

    a fairly reasonable stab at a 'baby elite' with a plot

    very cool game, but would it run on winXP? :(

    while we're (sort of) on the subject of ancient obscure 3D flight games, anyone remember mercenary for the C64?

    15 minute load times aside, that game kicked ass.

    Dune 2

    Well, how many of you have actually finished Dune 2 - Battle for Arrakis? I remember having sat there for hours selecting unit by unit... No drag-select that time, no no!

    Re: Dune 2

    Yep, finished that one :) I hadn't played any other RTS game at the time so I wasn't put off by the lack of features.

    The last RTS game I played through was Starcraft....I was impressed by the balance of the three very different forces. But lately, RTS games have gone downhill IMO, with nothing innovative left to offer.

    /me awaits "C&C 7: Slightly Different Tanks" with trepidation :p
