    I wish EA signed up all Origin's games on this service

    This GOG thing seems to be all kinds of awesome. Older games for 6 and 10 bucks without DRM and fully Vista and XP compatible with post-sale support. Man, That would be awesome.

    Widescreen gaming and Wing Commander

    Hello all; I just got me a pretty 19" LCD widescreen monitor, and I'm reconfiguring all my games to work with it. Recent games usually support 1440x900 out of the box, or can be coaxed into doing it with a few tricks. There is a great site just about that, and it's ridiculously good. The...

    Did you catch'em all already?

    Hey, LOAF, I've been thinking about getting me Pokemond Diamond or Pearl... I assume you already have one of them, if so, how do you like it? I guess it's about time I caught some pocket monsters myself.

    The original Vampire fighter?

    While reading about US experimental fighter craft, I found the Bell XF-109. It looks a lot like the Vamp. I don't know if it's a coincidence or a source of inspiration (something that would've been perfectly acceptable, anyway), but it's pretty cool either way.

    The first 100 Computer Gaming World Magazines online - Wing Commander review included

    They put all the 100 first CGW magazines online (PDF) in this address: The #100 was in 1992, so there are lot's of Origin and a few Wing Commander reviews and articles. I think it would be a cool resource to add to all the docs you guys have online on the CIC. It...

    Another classic gaming Franchise getting the Deluxe treatment

    This time it's the granddaddy of all conquer-the-world games, a series that is responsible for marriages ending and sleepless nights long before the MMOs. Civilization is getting a great make over: Pretty neat, lots of great extras.

    The REAL Mace Missile I really thought the Mace was a crazy idea, but it seems that a very similar weapon was in the USAF and the Canadian Air Force for decades! A nuclear unguided rocket which would be fired into big strategic bomber formations... Wow. I hope that it is relevant...

    Pretentious Matrix Crap

    I'm impressed by the screenshots, he remade every single piece of furniture AND the corresponding textures. Nah, I'm too scared of Jack Torrance to do that. BTW, concerning your declaration on top of the page, did you like matrix revolution?

    They say you wanna Revolution...

    So, any thoughts on the 3 (or 4) new consoles? I think that the revolution looks like crap, but will probably be a lot less expensive and also cost less to develop games for... So, probably nintendo will remain the last bastion of inovation. add to it a "nintendo live" for free service WITH a...

    Strange Dates in Confed Handbook

    I was reading my brand not-new copy of the movie-based Confed handbook, and I spotted some strange dates. I'm sure LOAF has some explanation for them, though. on one page they say that the pilgrim war began on 2631 and that the pilgrins surrendered in 2629... And they say that Tolwyn was...
